TIL in 1866 Liechtenstein had an army of 80 men and fought during the Austro-Prussian war, they suffered no injuries or deaths and returned home with 81 people because they made a new Italian friend. The army was disbanded soon after and they haven’t had an army since.
To the guy harassing the poor kid checking in your groceries, kindly go fuck yourself. On the bright side, peeps, I made a new friend and his name is Aaron, we have the same trans pride tattoo and we both like chocolate so obviously hit us up with those plans.

I went to Las Vegas, awa, a goth club, I’ve made new friends, I tried new things, I moved from TX back to GA, I reconnected with family and friends, i started a job as a manager and my sister is having a baby so I’m going to be an aunt, and my super best friend is moving back home!!!!!
Also my favorite otp is getting married and I couldn’t be happier. Victor and yuri has really been the best thing about the end of 2016!
So, A lot has happened this year and I’m so grateful for many blessings in my life right now.
Im the happiest today then I think I have ever been in my whole life!!! I feel like I’ve grown as a person and I really feel like I’m really becoming my own woman. My confidence alone speaks volumes! Before I wasn’t so sure of myself but now?! I feel really confident and self assured about my life, my goals, and my future.
My hope is that 2017 will lead me to a brighter year! A year full of hopes, dreams, and love.
Because Kara and Barry are my brotp, and Kara totally skipped out on apologizing to Lena (let alone thanking her), have Mr. I-Broke-the-Timeline giving Ms. I-Doubted-My-Friend(and-may-or-may-not-have-accused-her-of-helping-her-evil-mother) a little talk about fixing mistakes.
Kara stares out into the distance at a sight that is both foreign and familiar. Earth-1 is similar enough to her own, and though she’s made an amazing group of new friends - and kicked alien butt in the process - it’ll never be home, and her chest aches with longing for those she’s left behind. It’s only been a couple of days since she departed, but it may as well have been weeks with how heavy her heart feels.
“Hey, you’re missing the party.”
She can feel, more than see, as Barry approaches from behind; his feet are light, and his heartbeat is always a little bit fast, and Kara can always tell it’s him by that alone.
“You okay?” he asks, as he comes to stand beside her.
“Yeah,” she replies, nodding. “Just… needed some air.”
A gentle grin teases his lips, and Barry throws an arm around her shoulder as he says, “You know, you’re not a very good liar.”
Kara scoffs, feigning indignation. “I’ll have you know that I’m a very good liar. One time, in highschool, I caught a baseball ten feet off the ground and convinced everyone that I just had a really good pair of shoes.”
“Must’ve been some shoes,” he remarks.
“They were Air Jordans,” she grins, earning a hearty chuckle from the Flash.
“Seriously, though,” he says, the smile on his face morphing into a look of concern. “Are you really okay?”
It takes Kara a moment to respond, contemplating her words before she replies, “I… I made a mistake.”
His brows furrow in confusion. “What kind of mistake?”
Lena flashes through her mind, and she sighs. “The kind that might cost me a friend.”
“Ah.” Barry nods understandingly. “I might know a thing or two about that. What happened?”
“Long story short, I doubted her when I should have stood by her instead,” Kara explains, “and her trust isn’t something easily earned. She doesn’t have many other friends, and her family is sort of crazy - in a mass alien genocide kinda way - and I just… I’m afraid that I’ve only isolated her further…”
“Honestly,” she continues, lips tugging into a rueful smile, “The reason I was so eager to come to your Earth was because I didn’t know how to handle the possible fallout, and I just wanted to get away while I still could. I mean, of course I’d come regardless, but the added benefit of being… 37 Earth’s away? It was a nice incentive. But now the threat is over, and I have to go back, and… even with a few extra days to think it over, I still don’t know what I’m supposed to do to fix this.”
“Y’know, Earth-1 could always use a permanent Supergirl,” says Barry, though the offer is only in jest. They both know this isn’t her home. “But, as someone who has plenty of experience with running away from their problems, I can honestly tell you that it isn’t worth it. In the end, you’ll still have to deal with them, and it’s better to face them head on instead of waiting until you have no other choice.
“When I went back in time, I altered the present, and things happened that I’ll never be able to take back. Although things have smoothed over for now, I know that it’s going to take a lot on my part to completely earn back the trust of my friends. It sucks… a lot… but I’m owning my mistake and doing what I can - in the here and now - to make up for it.
“Whatever you did to hurt your friend, let her know that you understand the consequences of your actions. Let her know that you know you’ve betrayed her trust, and let her know you’re willing to work to earn it back. It’s not the easiest thing to do, but… it is the right one.”
Kara stares down, letting his words sink in. Anxiety swells in her gut, mind racing with possible outcomes. She’s come to truly appreciate having Lena Luthor in her life, and the thought of further ruining their fragile relationship terrifies her more than it should. But Barry’s words hold true, and she knows if they’re ever to move forward in their friendship, this is something they’ll have to overcome.
Finally, she nods her head. “Thanks, Barry. I really needed that.”
Smiling, he tightens his hold on her shoulders and draws her in for a hug. “That’s what friends are for.”
The Challenge: Nearly one in five people in the U.S. have special needs, and yet we still have trouble teaching special needs awareness.
The Solution: Autism Advocacy.
The Teen Who’s Making A Brighter Future: Alexandra Jackman from Westfield, NJ.
Alexandra Jackman was 8 years old when she met a young girl with
cerebral palsy at summer camp. Alexandra wanted to say hello, but she
didn’t know how. That’s when she realized that there was nothing holding
her back except for her own fear and misperceptions.
From that moment on, Alexandra not only made an incredible new
friend, she also found her passion for working with people with special
needs. In 2013, she created a 14-minute documentary titled, “A Teen’s
Guide to Understanding and Communicating with People with Autism.” When
she put it online, the reactions were fantastic. Her film is now
presented in schools and hospitals as an educational and anti-bullying
tool and won awards at 10 film festivals. Alexandra uses the film as a
platform to talk about awareness and acceptance all over the country.
This year, Alexandra received a Diller Teen Tikkun Olam award for her dedicated work.
