major rant is major

You ever make a long ass rant about something or someone then delete it afterwards? Once I’ve typed it all out, I feel like the weight has been lifted from my shoulders and it sort of strangely helps in a way even though no one reads it except for yourself.

Finn : a complexe, well-rounded, loveable black character

Hux : a white guy we saw 3 minutes in the movie, who said 3 lines, so 
insignificant I didn’t even remember he was there after seeing the movie 

this is a friendly little reminder @ the skam fandom that:

- sana and the balloon squad are all poc, stop erasing that part of them

- if you are a racist and islamophobic person then please leave because no one needs whites who fetishize white mlm but hate on every poc/muslim character

- if you are white and poc call you out on being racist then you cannot argue back saying you were not racist or that they are being racist towards you because listen up REVERSE RACISM IS NOT FUCKING REAL

- stop sending shit to any muslim and/or poc in this fandom and stop correcting them because listen up buddy, us white people do NOT get to say what is or is not racist

- stop being a fucking dick no one needs your annoying ass here

I love how, regarding Phan:

  • They just moved into their third home together.
  • They’ve heavily implied if not outright stated that they want a dog/’forever home’ together.
  • They’re openly going on cute holidays and dates together.
  • Their creepshot war has turned into a mutual “appreciate my husband” campaign.
  • Just everything they do shows how they’re each other’s ‘forever-person’ and they want us to know it.

Meanwhile, the Phandom is:

  • Excited of course, but not surprised.
  • Happy for and supportive of them.
  • Embracing all the changes that are happening.
  • Not overanalysing things the way we used to, and in fact have predicted a few things correctly this year.
  • At its most chill in general.

Basically a lot is happening and while one would expect us to be losing our shit completely, we’re actually being pretty cool about it in comparison to how we could be, meanwhile our love and respect for DnP is only growing.

2017 is the year, people.

Why is writing papers such a pain in the neck? Like I’m ENJOYING this book and I have so many THOUGHTS and OPINIONS and I could probably ramble about them for the length of my class, but for some reason, tell me to write a FOUR PAGE PAPER and I’m SUFFERING. 

I’ve written shit twice as long as this about things I didn’t care HALF as much about. 

anonymous asked:

Are you a Gold Star lesbian? (Just in case you don't know what it means, a Gold Star lesbian is a lesbian that has never had sex with a guy and would never have any intentions of ever doing so)

I believe that using the term “gold star lesbian” is bullshit and insulting, implying that some women are better or more accomplished lesbians based on their sexual histories. A very good friend of mine’s mother is a lesbian, even though she was married for ten years to a man and had two children. Is her identity as a lesbian less valid than people who felt safe and able to come out at a young age? Sure, I’m happy for folks that are able to discover their sexual identity early in their journey and stick with that, but not doing so, or even just experimenting later on, should not be seen as a lack of achievement or make their identity any less valid. It’s the same bullshit patriarchal thought process surrounding the concept of losing one’s virginity, implying that a man’s dick is able to reshape one’s identity and who they are as a person.

I used to be a “gold star” lesbian. I never actually saw an adult penis in person until this past October, and that first time was just at a play with nudity. I never saw a dick in an intimate context until December. Now I actually identify as pansexual. I have had sex with men. I do have sex with men. I felt ashamed of that for a while (and at times still do) because I felt like I was losing a part of my identity that I had been proud of for years. This wasn’t helped by people pushing a “gold standard” for gayness.

Quit shaming lesbians for their sexual histories.

Just depression/anxiety things

-Freaking out every five minutes while listening to head phones because you think someone can hear what you’re listening to
- staying home from school/work because of depression but not being able to actually relax because of your anxiety telling you you should be doing something
-dissociation
- “ have you tried deep breathing?”
- wanting to go to sleep because sleep feels good but not being able to because of intrusive thoughts
- not trusting that people could actually like you
- “ try doing something productive”
- “ shit did i take my meds?”
- not being able to sleep because of anxiety about the next day
- not telling people abou the shitty parts of mental illness not to scare them even though they want to know and help
- group projects
- having to weigh mental health and grades
-

when you log on to relax and are immediately flooded with negativity

What Sherlock says to Sholto: We wouldn’t do that to John Watson

What he means: SON, DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH I WORKED TO WHIP THIS WEDDING INTO SHAPE? HOW MUCH I CRIED ON MY PILLOW EVERY NIGHT AFTER DECIDING WHERE PEOPLE WOULD SIT, THE FOOD, THE COLOR OF THE DRESSES, DOY OU E V E N KNO W? I FUCKING SOAKED HALF THE NAPKINS I FOLDED, DEAR.

Ch136 Hak

since our thunder baby wasn’t able to produce anything beside like 4 lines that told nothing about the chaos going inside him, let me most humbly volunteer to try being his voice. he really has so much going on in this chapter. 

this is the most vulnerable state for hak since he met the dragons. no, much more than before that. because then, his family wasn’t held hostages, they didn’t depend on his success in an almost impossible mission to avoid execution either. however, like you would guess, he can’t show that. not just because of his bad habit of bottling things up, but because he has to be strong for yona. what we could else guess? hmm, yes, maybe that he is in desperate need for an ally to rely on. 

oh yes imagine his relief when he saw min soo! what else to guess? that this is maybe the worst time ever for him to discover another betrayal? surely even worse if it was from someone he thought of as a ray of hope just a moment ago. 

there was no more suitable time for min soo’s revelation. really. 

he honestly couldn’t accept it. no, not another betrayal from someone he trusted awfully much, he told himself there must be reasons, they couldn’t do this to him they must have been forced.  

but they weren’t. they were fooled but they aren’t completely guiltless. you say “but min soo did nothing wrong!” for the most part i agree, and yona apparently does too, but what about hak? we didn’t really get his opinion on the matter. what we got was many pained expressions.“so he was caught in the mess but why didn’t he ever tell me he knew soo won for so long?” or something like that i guess. 

he was shaken to the core,

that he did the one thing he absolutely didn’t want to do.

his face may not say a lot, but his actions show just how much vulnerable, unstable and desperate he is right now. all the people he knew in the castle and trusted? he can’t trust a single soul of them anymore. he frantically looked for the only people in this whole country whom he can still trust without doubt. honestly, in part, there may have been a doubt, he maybe wanted to prove to himself such people still exist 

his reply here is off. yona clearly is being concerned about the wind tribe’s safety and he basically goes “yes they will listen to me no matter what” no.. she isn’t questioning their loyalty to you.. it’s more like he is addressing himself, not her.

and amid all that, in his most shaken state, when he is desperately clinging to things to hang on, this happened. 

min soo’s little visit may not have been in the most appropriate time but this was. kusanagi is slowly stripping hak of every guard, and now making him see this, that yona moved forward, that he can finally be allowed to act upon his feelings for her, will soon spin things between these two i believe. 

there is, however, one more issue to overcome before any hope of change for them. it’s high time hak developed higher sense of value about himself. you see, the main reason he is so in denial about his feelings for yona isn’t because of her feelings for soo won, but because of how little he thinks of himself. he thinks he doesn’t deserve to love her let alone have her love. he is still struggling to allow himself the little privilege of one-sided, unrequited love. there is no way he will simply ask for more. there is no way he will nod and accept even if she is the one to confess. 

hak needs to develop first so yonak could make any progress as a couple. just like yona did, he also needs to move forward. and i believe this is where kusangi is heading to now.

Hanji’s Backstory??? (rant)

Okay, I think I stated many times that I am obsessed over Hanji’s missing backstory. It is undeniable that Hanji is one of the major characters in Attack on Titan. No, she is not just a side character, she is a MAJOR character just like Levi, Reiner, Jean, etc. In this Guidebook, it listed out MAJOR characters’ birthdays, weight, and hometowns. 

We see that Ymir, Hanji, Levi, and Erwin’s hometown were marked with question marks. But now, up to chapter 95, the only person in this list that still has question marks is Hanji. Why is that? Does Isayama still has something big in plan for Hanji? It seems like that is the case. Even though she’s had a major role throughout last three arcs, seen her inner thoughts, and won 5th place in the second character popularity poll, she is still very mysterious unlike the other major characters (besides Bertolt). We don’t know her background history, hometown, family, or her initial motive of joining the survey corps. So far, these things were significant for each veterans. By knowing Levi and Erwin’s past, we discovered the Ackerman family, government censorship, and the underground city. These things were the reasons why Levi and Erwin decided to join the survey corps and reveal their motivation/characters. 

Now, do we really need Hanji’s backstory? For Hanji lovers like me, yes. But in the story, maybe not. But it’s so odd that one major character, who is now the commander of the survey corps, does not have a full backstory like the rest of the characters.

  • What I say: I’m fine
  • What I mean: Skandar Keynes is one of the best humans of our generation, and I will never understand why he didn’t get any more acting jobs after Narnia. He has the talent, the looks, the accent, and the general awesomeness that would make ANY director want to cast him. I could see him in a British drama series or really any show like Game of Thrones, Doctor who, or Sherlock. He’d be absolutely fantastic in them. The fact that I will never get to see Skandar’s beautiful face on TV again hurts my delicate heart.
Tips for people planning to be art majors.

1. Don’t.

2. There’s always going to be an art elitist in your class who thinks they know everything and thinks they are the next Michelangelo. Typically their art is average at best.

3. If there is no art elitist in the class, you are the art elitist.

4. Fundamental classes will boost your ego. Upper division will make you feel like you’re in kindergarten again because you suck.

5. There will always be someone better than you, but they are students too.

6. The professors who point out the flaws before praising you are the ones you can learn the most from.

7. You’re going to spend more money than you’ll originally estimate.

8. Don’t take more than two studio classes per semester. You’ll spend more time on these classes than any of your other classes combined.

9. Learn to appreciate criticism.

10. The professors who insist you call them by their first name mean it. You’ll like them.

11. Prepare to spend the night multiple times in the art department, this is your new home.

12. Get ready for lots of, “okay but how are you going to make money in the real world?” and “can’t you just make art outside of college and get a real major?” and “what do your parents think?”

13. Coffee is your best friend. If you don’t like coffee, learn to like it.

14. Your main influence/inspiration for each project will be adderall.

15. There’s going to be people who take studio classes that aren’t art majors or minors, they just think it’ll be fun. They’re going to be severely disappointed and will require most of the instructor’s attention. Try not to dismember them.

16. The phrases “What the hell” “I don’t even fucking know” and “I give up” will be used frequently.

17. Never give up.

18. Don’t.

I am a big Stormpilot fan but can we not…keep cutting out the first Asian woman to ever appear on the cover of Vanity Fair?

That’s the thing about studying engineering as a woman - you never quite feel like you belong. The strange looks you receive when you enter a lab.
That you have to walk down a flight of stairs to get to one of the few bathrooms in the building, rather than having one on every floor.
The look of concern you receive when, like every boy in the room, you haven’t put effort into your appearance.
How much harder it is to make friends, because every guy thinks it’s their lucky day when you talk to them, and every girl sees you as a threat to the hard work they’ve put in.
When guys say you have it easy because the system is skewed towards ‘diversity’.
When people you’ve met once are surprised when you say you’re doing engineering because, you’re a woman and surely you should be doing commerce.

Engineering is still considered a man’s profession. I work hard every day to overcome that inner voice that tells me that i’m not good enough, because I deserve to be there as much as every one else in that room.

You know, I normally don’t say anything if someone posts something on social media that I do not agree with because I believe everyone is entitled to their opinions. But, I couldn’t pass up this tweet without commenting. Sorry for the rant that is about to occur.

Someone tweeted about not understanding how someone could attend college for four years to study theatre/plays. Now, of course theatre has to do with reading plays; but, it is so much more than that.

Theatre is about understanding how people’s brains work, how they think and feel. It’s the study of psychology. Theatre is about learning to relate to many different people in many different ways. It’s the study of communication. Theatre people have to be fascinated by words, because we have to know many different words and how to use them. These words even include medical and scientific terminology. It’s the study of English and language. Theatre practitioners must love history, because we must be aware of how the world worked in different time periods. Theatre is about thinking creatively, and outside of the box. It’s about learning to understand ideas and concepts that have never even crossed your mind. It’s the study of philosophy. Knowing how businesses work and are effected by the economy is essential if one wants to work in a theatre. It’s the study of economics. Theatre is the study of truth, it’s the study of life.

Theatre can make people feel, and think. It can make people believe, remember, forget, explore, and understand different things. Theatre creates open-minded individuals, with a love for learning.

Some people are very quick to judge and comment on things they know very little about. There are so many factors that go into studying theatre, which many people are unaware of.

Theatre has led me to meet some of the most creative, intelligent, and compassionate people that exist in this world.

I am fortunate enough to say that I am passionate about what I study, and will love my future career. I am proud to be a theatre major.

Have you ever seen a band program that’s just a total mess? It’s a real downer, man. My high school’s marching band won a national title in the 80’s and years later the band didn’t compete whatsoever. That is insane! When I became drum major I wanted to start us on the path to getting back into competing. Change after change made that suuuper difficult though. I had four different band directors throughout high school and believe me when I say it’s hard to recover from director after director, especially when the school itself can’t support the band because it’s over 2 million dollars in debt (believe me, that is A TON of money for a small town school district). Our uniforms are (not joking) from the 70’s and we only have about 3 working school-owned instruments. I don’t know what the moral of this rant is???? I just gotta let it out. Feel free to add your experiences with sad bands I guess?

People lately has been telling me that Yuugi doesn’t top in puzzleshipping. 

I tell them how long it’s been and old that starts to sound like. 

They keep telling me Yuugi doesn’t top. 

And I’m just “?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”
