let the people choose

Everyone who wants to live showing true devotion to God in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

Persecution comes when you stand on what you believe in, when you say no to sin that this world adores, when you don’t let blind and dead people be your guide, when you choose to glorify God rather than feeding your lustful desires, when you proclaim to people what they don’t want to hear. But If you have an “holier than thou” attitude instead of a humility of a child, those words you receive are not persecutions but a loving correction. 

Persecutions is inevitable because God clearly tells us that we will experienced it. The only thing that matter is glorifying God whatever the cost. Whatever they do to us, it cannot compare to the glory that awaits us.

Beyonce uses her performances as a platform to send a message on important social issues.

anyone else noticed the trend here on tumblr of worshipping certain famous women for like a couple months and there being serious hype for them and then like a month later everyone’s ripping into them and talking about how much they hate them

jafar’s part at the end of twisted the song reblog if you’re still crying

On this blog, I have been blatantly encouraging Americans to go vote (and go vote for Hillary at that, the only real chance at stopping Trump) all day, and with the amount of followers that I have I pretty much expected a significant chunk to unfollow me over that (because there’s gotta be SOME Trump supporters in there, right?), yet only like two people unfollowed me today (which happens on an average day and might not even be about that). 

Only two, out of nearly 32.000. And let me tell you, I am so glad that these are the people choosing to follow me. You guys are all awesome and amazing and I hope you’ll stick around for a long time. Bless you all!

And if you are American; it’s not too late to vote, make it count!

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: I can't believe people say that Shay Cormac is a traitor to the assassins. I mean he destroyed a city and blamed himself for it and Achilles told him to brush it off and didn't listen to what Shay had to say. And he didn't run off to the templars; Monro let him choose to be a templar or not. People don't even want to play the game, but it had such a great story, and people aren't even giving it a chance. And the modern plot was more relevant than Unity's modern plot. I mean what was Ubisoft thinking ? They should have put as much advertising into Rogue as they did Unity. And Shay was such a good character and there was a lot of nostalgia in the game. Remember the homestead from ACIII? You can run around it again, all while it's in its prime as an assassin headquarters. Plus, it has Haytham Kenway, so that's a plus. I just don't get why people didn't give Rogue a chance. Hey, has it been about 10 seconds since we talked about Rogue? It has been about 10 seconds till we talked about Rogue. Hey what the fuck

The bottoming question is confusing to me. I couldn't tell you who bottoms in my fave fics. HL's characterization is most important to me. The same traits come back from fic to fic so they feel familiar. But the way they fuck? Why would one bottoming be better to read than the other? I don't get it. Like at all. I've never seen anyone explain it. I get that taste is personal but I don't understand even having a specific taste for BL or BH.

I couldn’t tell you who bottoms in HALF OF MY OWN FICS. Lmao. 

I’ve said this before in my group chat but if H&L have sex more than once in my fic, it’s likely that they each get a turn. I do get people might have a preference but, like, when it comes to smut I have a preference for, like… rimming, and riding, but it’s not like I won’t read a fic where that doesn’t happen and it’s not like I even ever seek out fics with that in. If I read the tags and it says one of those things I might be like “yay!” But that’s it. Some of the anons I’ve read or comments on fics honestly astound me tbh.

so like. i just wanna clear one thing up

cause i keep getting asks about it

yes. i have a boyfriend. no, i’m not going to give “juicy details”.

i would very much appreciate if people would let me choose which parts of my personal life i am willing to expose to the public. i dont know why this sort of thing is something that everyone has to know about.

the most i will say, because i’m getting a little tired of people making their own unfair and frankly slanderous assumptions about my situation, is

my boyfriend i are in a polyamorous relationship. and we’re still trying to find someone to fill our relationship circle.

now please, PLEASE stop asking me about it. i make a very very strong (and wise) effort not to share too much of my personal life online, and i really hope you guys can respect this. i will not say anything more.

thank you.

Harry used to have so much support from people who aren't larries but it's really down to larrie harries and holo harries :( Holo harries hate larrie harries and 1d fans hate the holo harries. He has less and less support and the public in 2017 doesn't care about a celebrity with no social media presence or a relationship to make them a big success :( I'm sorry for being negative but it's hard to be happy..

I don’t know, man, i’m pretty happy.  I choose joy.  People hate other people?  Let them.  It must be pretty exhausting to carry around that kind of anger.  I’ll be over here chilling with my iced coffee.  I don’t know if it’s necessarily less support, but more out of sight out of mind.  Once he actively starts doing promo- and like I mentioned to my earlier anon, a few fan pics and pappings, a few mentions of his album from people not connected to it, don’t count in my book as active promo.  That’s getting his feet wet and slowly reintroducing himself to the world after being a giant hermit.  

I guess i just try to think about it like a casual fan and I can only speak for myself, I know it’s just anecdotal and not based on anything substantial.  I”m also aware that I might not be normal or average, but I don’t buy an album because of an artist’s social media presence.  I just recently saw Tove Lo in concert and I have no idea if she even has twitter.  All I know is, I really like her music.  I only know what she looks like because her face is on her album cover.  I know the vaguest outlines of her personal life as it relates to her music.  I don’t care to know more, but I do care enough to buy and/or stream her music and buy concert tickets.  I mean hell, even Ed Sheeran.  Sure he’s got a solid social media presence, but I would have bought his album even if he didn’t.  I find his tweets and instagrams charming, but it’s just background noise to me. Again, like I said, I know this isn’t solid evidence, but I feel like if his music is good and he’s not a bag of dicks (which we know he’s not), he’ll be fine.  

Is social media helpful? Hell yeah it is, especially when it comes to BUILDING a career.   Is it the be all end all of someone’s career?  naaah.  But even this worrying is wayyyyyy too early.  How do we know he won’t start up again as it gets closer to being released?  Why worry about things that might not even happen?  

A Little Lesson I Learned Recently

If you surround yourself with positive people, you will become a more positive person. I know this is totally cliche, but it’s true. I’ve learned a lot about myself over the past year, and I figured out that if you don’t want to be around negativity, you don’t have to. You choose whether or not you get to be happy. You. No one else. So choose happiness. Be picky with who you let into your life. Choose people who make you happy.

okay i’m done now lol

Tomorrow it’s election day in the Netherlands. I’d like to call out to all my fellow Dutchies. If you are eligible to vote tomorrow please use your vote and vote wisely. We are a democratic country and we have a voting right where in some countries people don’t have that right. We can choose who we want in charge of our country. And in light of brexit and the US elections I’d like to ask you to choose wisely.

I won’t tell you who to vote for. But make sure that this person is suitable to run our country. You don’t have to know a lot about politics to vote. You can take an online test to determine which party fits your opinions best. But please use the vote. Especially if you’re young. Us young people are the future of this country. Let’s choose someone who represents us.

I know no one cares but I’m putting this out there.

If you’re aware of the art problems in the show, particularly the inconsistent and unprofessional character appearances and heights, but don’t care, then more power to you. I don’t have a problem with you, in fact I envy your ability to ignore these issues.

If you’re aware of these problems and acknowledge them but don’t make a fuss, then I’m cool with you too.

If you’re completely oblivious to these problems then that’s awesome.

If you have perfectly good eyesight and are able to see these problems in the show without relying on fan made examples but choose to preach about how it’s just style differences in the storyboarders’ way of drawing and representation of the characters, and tell the people who choose to let their voices be heard by expressing their concern over something that is clearly and undeniably a problem that they’re overreacting, that their priorities are misplaced and that they should, simply put, shut up and stop sharing their opinion, I don’t like you.
