me about being in third place

Growing up being the only deaf girl in my house was such a rollercoaster. My family didn’t know I was deaf until my third grade teacher pointed out that I couldn’t hear her and thought I was ignoring her. The day my mom took me a place where there was people testing if I was actually deaf the results came out I was fully deaf in my right ear and hard of hearing the left ear. I remembered seeing my mom crying I asked her why she was crying, she said “ I’m so sorry, I didn’t know you were deaf all this time I thought you were ignoring me. I’m sorry I yelled at you. ” I’m little kid at this time so I told her it was okay. The very first time I’ve gotten my hearing aid was such an amazing experience. I remembered they added this gooey stuff in my ear, it was like ear massage the best thing in the world, that gooey stuff was a part to create my hearing aid. After while, I gotten my first hearing aid the experience was unexplainable I heard the radio a lot louder for first time and I heard my mother better. Thanks to audiologists for their incredible help and kindness.
Being deaf and black in my teen years, I thought I wouldn’t attracted boys because in my mind I was thinking they could’ve hated deaf girls like myself now these days I’m more like “ If you can’t love a deaf girl, you can’t love me. ”
I’ve dealt with hard times in my life not aware of my deaf culture as I gotten older I love deaf culture wholeheartedly and wouldn’t change that for the world. I want to continue to express black deaf girl joy so the world knows black deaf culture exists and I’m Lyric Moore a proud black deaf girl who’s also hard of hearing and this my story.

My Drama Year!

It had been some time since I had wifi, so I ventured to the library to download K-Dramas for entertainment purposes. This is My Year in K-Dramas. The last two are recent and I have watched them with wifi because I am in a better place. Yay!!

     1. Oh My Venus

      This drama started out being really sad to me, then it became rather weird, but then I thought it was cute. It is one of those dramas that I would definitely say I enjoyed. Without wifi and cable, it was also hard to watch a second or third time. By the third time, I just went through my favorite episodes/moments. Would still recommend! 4.5 STARS!


           2. Cheese in the Trap 

                Now this one I was actually kind of bored with until about the fifth episode. Sorry, but true. I had a hard time understanding why it was popular. Of course, though, I did enjoy watching it after getting into it. After some time, it had me hooked and trying to figure things out as it went and the male lead had me all confused and stuff! Kekeke Would I recommend? Yes. 4 STARS!

                This one I stumbled upon by chance. I looked it up on Google and decided the synopsis made the show seem very intriguing. So I downloaded it and enjoyed every second of this mystery thriller!! From beginning to end I was hooked, like a fish on a line!! I could not get enough of the show and even checked to see if there was another season. I still need another one. TOTALLY DAEBAK!!! 5 STARS


            4. Descendants of the Sun

                 THIS ONE!! Yes, this one. This drama I kept in my files for a long time, even after I moved TWICE(!!!!). I love this drama from beginning to end and may have watched it about ten times… Without skipping episodes. I love it so much, I had the poster as my phone’s background and had ringtones. I am not ashamed!! Song-Song couple is love, dude!! This one breaks the record. WAY PAST 5 STARS!!!


             5. W: Two Worlds

                  Now tell me why Lee Jong Suk said he wants to play a more masculine type of character when he did such a cool, manly job playing as his character Kang Chul?! He is the definition of perfection and I love him so much. I started feeling rather odd when I wanted him to catch me in a bathroom. Like, I volunteer to be scared like that!! All semi-joking aside, the drama is freaking awesome and the story line was well thought out. I would like to meet the writer and get some tips. 5 STARS!!!

                 So many favorite scenes, so much bromance. Is it bad of me to say I loved this drama from beginning to end, too? I hope not. Although, for some reason, I wasn’t too into the beginning scene of the first episode. I shrug when I think about it because I have no idea why I’m not pleased with it. Gong Yoo did amazing acting out the battle and the movements were great and everything, but eh. ANYWAY! This drama had me swooning over anything and everything and even made me feel lonely af. I super love love it, though and totally watched it again and again!! Another one that broke the scale!!


            7. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

                 I just recently finished this one, so fresh out of the mind reaction. Here goes. NAM JOO HYUK, STOP STEALING MY HEART!!!!!! The story was great and the acting was even greater!! I love that it’s not the typical thin boy loves thin girl. Noooope, nope, nope. I am so in love with the story, I may go watch it again. With each episode, I had to make sure I was breathing because Nam Joo Hyuk kept me from breathing correctly. The love scenes were so cute and well thought out and that’s what really had me feeling like a high school teenager again. Oh, those feelings of blissful love. Sigh. I would definitely recommend this drama that peoples ears would fall off. I’m so in love with it. ANOTHER SCALE BREAKER!!!!!

    Thank you so much for reading!! (If you did) I know it was super long and not well typed, but I was afraid of mentioning any spoilers. Please keep in mind that I really did enjoy each and every one of these dramas. No harm, no foul.

    Got a drama you want to recommend I watch and review? Leave me a comment/message! Thank you!! Heartu!

    Request: Shine

    Part two to Storm! Honestly I really didn’t expect the response that the first one got, but I was so thrilled!! I started this about four times, trying to get it to a place I wanted it so I could get a satisfying end to the first one, so you’ll have to let me know what you think… maybe even a third part? Let me know!

    Word Count: 1,304

    It’s good to be home. Despite everything, despite being completely unsure about your future, it’s nice to sleep in the same bed for more than two nights in a row, and it’s nice to know when and where your next meal is going to come from. It’s nice to have Bobby there, someone who knows you inside and out and understands – what isn’t nice is constantly having him lie to Dean for you. You’ discussed it, and more than once it had ended in tears, with you deciding that you didn’t want to face him. Not yet. Maybe not ever.

    This limbo, it’s… easier than facing things. Whatever you do, whichever decision you make, it’s going to change your life forever. But while you’re here, admittedly hiding from everything, you’re safe from that change, sheltered from whatever havoc it’s likely to wreak on your life.

    You sigh to yourself, rolling over and tugging the duvet up to your chin, enjoying the warmth – that’s another nice thing, not having to be up and out of bed at the crack of dawn every single morning. Bobby has been insisting on you getting proper sleep, and considering that it can take hours for you to fall asleep after tossing and turning constantly, you tend to make up the time in the mornings. You’re just about considering crawling from the bed and heading downstairs for a drink when you hear voices downstairs.

    “We need something of hers. Will there be something in her room?”

    “I- uh- it’s a mess, I’ll go up and-“

    “It’s fine, Bobby, I know what she’s like. The sooner we’re out of here the sooner we can start tracking her properly.”

    Dean. It’s him – he’s come for you. It’s been nearly two weeks – it would have come sooner or later. But you’d have appreciated some warning – some time to think about what you want to say.

    Bobby doesn’t want to protest – it would give you away. You recognise that, and recognise that he’s giving you a chance to run; to hide, to get away from it all one more time. A substantial part of you wants to – to be able to live the lie you’d begun to persuade yourself of.

    For once, you stand your ground, pushing yourself up and out of the bed, wrapping a robe around yourself – you’re not going to face him in just your pyjamas. By the time he makes it up the stairs, you’ve steeled yourself enough that you manage to stop your hands from shaking too much.

    The door creaks open, and Dean steps into the room – he notices you instantly, His hands curl into fists and he freezes, just staring at you like you’re some kind of phantom in the night.

    “Y/N,” He breathes, your name nothing short of a prayer on his lips. You want to be angry; be vindicated, but all you feel for him is sorrow. You take a half-step backwards, watching as the cogs whir in his brain, “How long have you been here?”

    “The whole time.”

    “You’ve been safe?” He whispers, words snagging on themselves and tangling like a loose thread. You nod minutely, wrapping your arms around yourself as he shakes his head.

    “Very.” You reply, perhaps a little shortly. You find, however, that you have very little to say to him. All of the thoughts you’d had… they’re gone in the face of a real conversation.

    “Y/N…” He presses his lips together, “I’m sorry.”

    “You always are.” You swallow, taking another step back, “Don’t pretend to care if you don’t. Don’t do it for pity. I don’t want your pity, I don’t want your sympathy.”

    “You don’t have it,” He snaps, perhaps a little too vehemently. It surprises you enough that it stops your mind in its tracks for a few moments, “I screwed up. Really, really screwed up.”

    “Really? I hadn’t noticed.” Just like you don’t notice the tears threatening to brim over, blurring your view like a melted kaleidoscope, “I’m not mad, Dean. I know you think I am.”

    “Then what are you?” He insists, raking his hands through his hair, “I know what I said was God-awful. I know I can never take it back. But I was terrified, and-“

    “So was I!” You interrupt, staring at him with wide eyes as the tears begin to fall, “I was beyond terrified! You didn’t think that that was my absolute worst fear? For you to completely… do that?”

    He can only look at you for a few moments, shaking his head, “I’m sorry.”

    “Sorry isn’t good enough.” You realise, “Sorry doesn’t cut it. Sorry doesn’t take it back.”

    The look of panic on his face is enough to break your heart – above it all, you love him. More than yourself, more than anything – but that doesn’t give him carte blanche to say what he wants and expect you to come running back the minute he realises his mistake.

    “I know.” He admits, chest slowly deflating, “I know. And the second you say leave, I’ll go. No questions asked. I wouldn’t blame you.”

    “Neither would I.” You agree, slowly unfolding your arms and wiping at your face, before letting them fall to your sides, “But I’m not going to.”

    “You’re not?”

    “You’re an idiot. We agree on that.” You watch as he nods, taking the hit in the hope of a little redemption – which you can’t help but give him, “And I’m upset. But that doesn’t mean I’m just going to give up. That’s not how this works. That’s never how this worked.”

    He shakes his head, agreeing readily – only then do you notice the tears in his eyes – a change. You may as well have handed him a golden goose – he’d have been less thankful for that than anything else.

    “Y/N, you don’t- you have no idea.” He says softly, swallowing hard, “You know I’ve always wanted a family. And then you came along and there was a chance, a real chance, of it happening. And now it is… now it might be…” Dean sighs again, “I screw you over. Because that’s what I do. Disappoint the people I love.”

    “I’m not going to pity you because of your history of bad choices. That’s your cross to bear.” You inform him softly, but take a slow step forward, “I’m willing to forgive and forget and move on. I want to. What I don’t want is for you to feel coerced or forced into staying. Stay or go, but there’s no in between.”

    He takes a deep breath, hesitating, and then shakes his head, “I’m staying. For as long as you’ll have me, I’m here.”

    You can’t help but crack a smile, “So that’s that? We’re doing this?”

    He nods, this time not hesitating, “Of course. In fact…” It’s the last thing you expect, but before you know it he’s taken both of your hands in his, “Marry me.”


    “I love you. I want to be with you forever, I want to make this official. Y/N Y/L/N, will you marry me?” He rambles, squeezing your hands and offering a tentative smile.

    “I’m not marrying you just because I’m pregnant. This isn’t nineteen-thirty-four.” You chastise, and Dean groans, rolling his eyes.

    “It’s not because you’re pregnant! Trust me, Y/N, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t want to be. I wouldn’t ask if I wasn’t completely sure of it. I love you. I want to do right by you, because you deserve it. Just let me be romantic and spontaneous, alright?” He insists, his eyes catching yours – and you grin, nodding.

    “Yes, then. Yes, I’ll marry you.” You decide, and then he grins, surging forward and taking your face in his hands so he can kiss your lips – and there it is. Past, present, and future, all in one.


    [Part One] [Part Two] [Part Three]

    Another blind boxer Tweek comic! This takes place shortly after the third part above where Craig’s gang have settled down for lunch. Seems like Clyde’s having a mental breakdown about being owned, especially by Tweek. Don’t worry guys, he’s just butt hurt.

    I don’t have to explain the obvious theme these two pages, do I? Hopefully not, if you’re really dumb and cant’t figure it out, ask me.

    Also, YES, CRAIG IS ASEXUAL in this AU, that doesn’t mean he can’t feel romantic attraction or admire someone’s appearance, he literally has no interest in sexual interactions, so don’t expect Craig to be sexual in this AU, seriously. Don’t like it? Deal with it.

    Anywayyysss, enjoy.

    PR Stunt Exposed: Briana Jungwirth

    I’m taking a huge risk by posting this. At this point, anything could happen to me or my account so it’s best that you know the truth. First disclaimer: I am in NO way whatsoever doing this for attention. Second: Believe me or don’t believe me (and if you don’t, that’s no excuse to be rude). Third: I can’t and won’t give away who my insider is. 

    1. Are the baby rumors fake?

    Yes. Every rumor you’ve heard about the “baby” being real is absolutely fake. Not true. Never existed in the first damn place. No matter what you’ve read or heard: fake. Doesn’t matter what newspaper, magazine, tweets or website. 

    2. Will they actually make Briana pregnant? 

    First of all, you can’t force someone to be pregnant (like, actually impregnate them). That’s wrong in so many ways.

    My insider overheard a phone call discussing the options that management could do to really make Briana seem pregnant. It was on speaker and they heard a woman shouting. 

    The person who was talking to the woman said: “Just get Bri in a baby bump suit and done.” 

    The woman argued: “No, no woman can go from skinny to pregnant in a day.” 

    Other person said: “Just erm, make her gain some puppy fat. Ya know, cakes and shite on the shoppin’ list and bam she’ll be pregant.”

    Woman retorted: “Yeah, pregnant with junk food. And nah, we can’t. She’s a model and she’s on a diet.” 

     (Briana would refuse to actually put on weight, so giving her a diet of greasy snacks and junk food was out of the question; apparently she wants to be a model and she’s taking no such risks. The fake baby bump would be too obvious as well.)

    Believe what you want. My insider was taking no such risks of recording this. They were already hiding, and that alone would’ve gotten them into trouble. 

    3. What’s the worst thing they could possibly do for this fandom? Force a live interview for Louis to “admit” he’s going to be a “father”?

    The worst thing my insider has heard SO FAR is that Harry and Louis will get into a fight (staged, of course). A huge heated argument about “the baby” that would make us believe they’re not on good terms anymore. However, given all the bullshit that has occurred, this seems unlikely; Harry and Louis would both never agree to such a thing.

    A live interview? Well, management could easily do anything.

    4. Why start such a rumor? Does this have anything to do with Elounor? And how did it happen/work?

    My insider states that this is to conceal Louis’ sexuality, as well as earn more publicity for One Direction. They’re playing Louis off as “100% straight.”

    We all remember Elounor (Eleanor Calder + Louis Tomlinson). Miss Calder was Louis’ “girlfriend” for four years. They “split up” in March 2015. (As I am giving you this information, this is knowledge my insider has collected. This is not their opinion or my opinion. Also, we’re not insulting or trying to mock anyone who ever shipped Elounor. Just to note: my insider is not even a shipper of anything at all in this fandom.) Remember how the fans made such a fuss about it, but neither Louis or Eleanor did? Neither of them publicly commented about it. Neither of them tweeted. We got a lot of crap after that. People would make edits of Twitter DMs to “convince” us they were still together or if they really had broken up. Bottom line: Louis never confirmed or denied it. And he’s in the same situation with these baby rumors. 

    My insider has told me that Elounor was “called off” by management because they needed to move into the next phase of PR: Zayn leaving. A few days after the headlines gave us such stories like “Louis Tomlinson Splits From Longtime Girlfriend” or “Representative for Louis Tomlinson Confirms Breakup” what happened? That’s right. The big shocker: Zayn “quits” 1D. 

    Elounor was called off for several reasons. One of them being that management no longer cared about them as a “couple” and wanted all the remaining attention to focus on Sophiam and Zerrie (but definitely Zerrie). Following the “split” and Zayn “leaving,” we received stories and publicity photos of Louis out clubbing on the town. In most photos he was drunk and/or miserable. They used the “he misses his ex-girlfriend” excuse, and people actually believed that. Remember how Harry Styles used to be known as the womanizer? (That’s what they made him out to be.) They tried it out on Louis. People started having doubts by then. 

    Here’s how they played it: Louis casually out partying with random girls and guys; they focus on one particular girl; said girl happens to be Briana Jungwirth; regardless of whether or not she’s actually friends with Louis, they hire/pay her and she probably signs a non-disclosure agreement (a contract stating she’s under oath and can’t speak or act out of line…even if, sadly, she receives hate); Briana and Louis will be photographed more and then rumors will start when we least expect it….. all orchestrated by those at Modest! Management who are in charge of PR.

    To sum it up: Elounor will be used for these rumors as long as they’re floating around. We’ll get several stories about how “Eleanor and Louis will get back together” and “Louis wants Eleanor back”; all that is bullshit, but they want you to believe it. 

     This is all I’m going to post for now. This was hard for me to do. I debated numerous times about whether or not I should post this. Expect a huge retaliation from Modest! if they see this… 

    -Princess Direction xoxoxo

    I need more days off; all I want to do is keep sleeping and I just woke up from a nap after being awake for two hours. I feel like I weigh two tons and the fatigue is too much. It might be because I’m not eating right as well, but I can’t do anything about that when I have zero appetite thanks to how lousy the food I can eat tastes.

    My mother will flip out on me if I go another day without taking care of that third room like I promised. The thing is… That third room is my bedroom, which she has no business being in in the first place. 

    I hope I can recover a bit during the week off I have in April. I burned myself out and I’m paying for it.

    Light!Xanatos Ficlet

    To help motivate @punsbulletsandpointythings to finish her homework, I offered to bribe her with a ficlet of her choosing. She selected a scene from her ‘verse in which Xanatos never falls to the Darkside, and Qui-Gon (being a better Master and better person for it) trains Obi-Wan to Knighthood without dying, and goes on to take Anakin as a Padawan. So, Puns, here it is: Xan teasing Obi-Wan about his crush on Qui-Gon, in the middle of battle.

    “So, a little bird tells me that you haven’t talked to our former Master even once this week.”

    Obi-Wan shoves them both out of the way of two blaster bolts, blocking a third with a well-placed parry of his lightsaber. His partner grunts at the impact, but regains his footing quickly enough, deflecting a fourth shot back at their attacker, who jerks and goes still.

    “I’m just saying, it’s been a while. That’s not like you, little brother.”

    “For the love of the Force, Xan, is this really the time or the place?” Obi-Wan squints up at the cliffs overhead, trying to make out if any of their other pursuers have spotted their hiding place beneath this overhang.

    “I’m just thinking of your happiness, Obi. Well, yours and Qui-Gon’s both.” Xanatos flicks off his ‘saber and drops back to the floor of the shallow cave to resume his tinkering with the remains of their comm unit, an old datapad, and the powercell from Obi-Wan’s travel lamp.

    “Well, why don’t you focus your thoughts on repairing the kriffing comm so we can get out of here?” Obi-Wan can sense their pursuers flying search patterns overhead, inching closer with each pass. If they can’t contact the ship soon, they are going to be in a very uncomfortable position indeed.

    “Patience, Knight Kenobi. Besides, I think I’ve got it working. We’ll know for sure once it’s had a few minutes to charge, though.” Xan looks up at Obi-Wan, a smirk curling the corners of his mouth. “So, what is it this time? Did you two have a fight?”

    The sudden roar of a speeder blares overhead, and they both freeze for a moment, holding their breath until it passes. Then Obi-Wan turns and glares at his partner.

    “No, we did not have a kriffing fight! It’s simply that Master Qui-Gon has better things to do with his time that to chat with his 27-year-old former Padawan, who really should be able to function without him at this point. He has duties to occupy his time, and Anakin’s training to oversee, not to mention his obligations to the Council…”

    “Oh, that’s the problem is it? Well, I’m sure we could get Ani to arrange a conspicuously free period in Qui’s schedule for you. After all, you need the help; at the rate you’re going, you’ll be old and grey before you manage to seduce him.”

    “XAN! That’s…I…I am NOT trying to seduce our former Master!”

    “Suuuuure you’re not.”

    “I hate you so much right now. I hope you realize that.”

    “Ah, but Obi-Wan, hatred is the path to the Darkside. And besides, we both know that you love me.”

    “I swear, Xan, if you don’t shut up, I am going to tie you up and leave you here, and when Qui-Gon asks what happened to you, I am going to tell him that you were captured due to your own terminal stupidity.”

    “Why, Obi-Wan, how forward of you! I thought you weren’t interested in me that way anymore.”

    “Ughh. Sith Hells, Xan. I cannot believe I ever thought sleeping with you was a good idea. I must have had brain damage.”

    “Love you too, little brother.” 

    anonymous asked:

    Do you think part of Josh being an annoying character has to do with Uriah playing him? I don't know much about him, I just know he's not a very good guy.

    I’m not sure 🤔 He didn’t seem bad to me until the third season when he manipulated Maya. Before then, he seemed like a good guy, walking the girls home from NYU and telling Cory and Topanga about what happened.
    During First Date, he learned a lesson about crushes himself.
    Honestly, Ski Lodge just messed everything up. I wonder if that place is cursed 😂
    Josh just needs to grow up, and be more mindful about how he treats others. He almost learned that lesson. Almost.

    I’m reading one of my school’s online journals and cringing. How do people reach their mid-20′s and still have commas wildly out of place in every other sentence? How do people graduate from high school, get accepted to college, graduate from college with good enough grades to get into law school, and reach their third year of law school without being able to write any better than a tenth grader? How do people publish something that’s supposed to be important and not care enough to scrutinize what they’ve written? Ughhhh.

    It doesn’t even make me feel good about myself to see 3L’s doing something mediocre. It just makes me sad!

    Kanon: WTF? You won’t give me just one?!
    Saga: Last year you ate all the candies. 
    Kanon: You can’t srsly still be mad about that!
    Saga: Can, and I am. 
    Kanon: Oh c'mon! Just one! And don’t go using my helmet as a bucket!
    Saga: First, you were the one who said it was a bucket on the first place. Second, it’s MY helmet. I wore it for much more time. And third, we don’t forget things easily. Do we, brother? (¬д¬)
    Kanon: ٩(╬ʘ益ʘ╬)۶ !!!!

    Bonus: The little shit returns  

    Gotta love me some twin bonding, specially when they are being a little shit to each other <3 
    That’s how the gemini bros show affection to each other right? Right 8D

    Saga is dressed as the pope again because that’s much of a nightmare material to many people, and Kanon is a lame mummy because he spent most of his time beaten up to a pulp (and probably because bondages is the only thing he has laying around).

    Happy halloween, guys!   °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

    Things I noticed on my final viewing of Fury Road before it disappears from silver screen...
    • The leaders of the Citadel, Gastown and Bullet Farm each represent a column of control/authority; General, Banker and Judge respectively. (Thanks to dagothurl)
    • Two images stick with me every time I watch it and will continue to for some time; Max rising from the sand after the storm (intercut with shots of magma/lava) and Max clinging to that lonely tree being pulled down to save their lives.
    • During the final, extended chase, when Nux returns from fixing one of the blown engines. Is it just me or does Capable seem extremely turned on by him and utterly confused as to whether or not she should be feeling that at all? Including glances to Furiosa for answers/guidance on it.
    • Lovely shot of Max the morning after between his fully-laden motorcycle and seemingly useless Big Rig. Representing the third choice he eventually puts to Furiosa.
    • The film is partly about sacrifice and that it has a place when for a cause you truly believe in.
    • “We are become half-life.” In the newsreel voice-over at the opening credits. Establishes a few important things very quickly and evokes Oppenheimer.
    • When the convoy leaves the Citadel, they are led by a muscle car with mounted .50cal, manned in a very casual manner by a War Boy. Evoking memories of the Iraq War. Not that it seeks to make any statement, more using an image from the public consciousness that immediately tells us this a dangerous place, but also filled with boredom.

    Bring on the disc release.


    Hi, I’m Caleigh!

    I am born and raised in Massachusetts, USA. My affinities are anything transportation related - my goal is to cross the country by longboard.

    My greatest accomplishments have been my long distance rides. So far, I have skated:

    -64 miles to Boston and home
    -71 miles to Manchester, CT and back home

    The first picture is me taking my two loves, my moped and my longboard, to a very special place. 

    The second picture is me in March 2015, in Thompson, CT after skating 50 miles from Massachusetts. I proceeded to skate another 21 miles after that picture, barefoot. It was an attempt to make it to New York, but although I didn’t make it, I learned a lot about how far I can push myself.

    The third picture is me. I am myself. I am a feminine woman who enjoys doing what I do, and being the best at it. 

    I Have Been Worrying About Trump Today

    Probably because there’s a lot of posts going by about voting for Clinton, addressed to people who say they would rather vote third-party. And it worries me, a lot. Following Brexit, I’ve kinda… adjusted my thinking, on stuff that seems like it would be impossible or too dumb to actually vote through.

    As a result, I cannot emphasis the following points enough:

    1) Elections are not the place for personal protests or performative morality. At all. For reference, see the Brexit voters who didn’t want to leave Europe, but wanted to “send a message” about being dissatisfied with the state of things. If the option you want isn’t there, vote against the thing you don’t want most, as forcefully as you can. Then yell about the shitty options afterwards. I suggest writing letters to whoever represents you in government, organising protests, social media campaigns… stuff like that. Voting is not the way to make noise, it’s the way to contribute to a choice that’s being made whether you like it or not.

    2) Barring last minute deaths or resignations, your actual voting options are Clinton and Trump. The US electoral system is rigged to ensure this- even if your state lets you vote for a third party candidate, that’s no guarantee for the state next door. Declining to vote Democrat or Republican is to surrender your contribution to the outcome. In theory I guess you could start a revolution instead, but those tend to end up with a lot of people messily dead and a complete asshole in charge, so I really wouldn’t advise it.

    3)  Clinton is a politician, and a human being with a lot of power entrenched in a flawed system. This means she is not a nice person, and that she has done and will do shitty things. The specifics of these things are important, but right now they are irrelevant because…

    4) …Trump is worse. He is what you would get if someone sat down and deliberately tried to make the worst possible human being and president conceivable. He will definitely fuck over the US and its people. He will almost certainly fuck over other countries and their people, if only as collateral to dragging the US into a cesspit. Between him and his advisers, I am not actually ruling out nuclear war as a thing he might cause, and that scares the shit out of me.

    In conclusion, please go and vote for Hillary Clinton even if she literally shot your dog in front of you, because one nuke in the UK would pretty much wipe out my entire nation and we’re in enough trouble as it is. Also I guess you probably don’t want to be a totalitarian state ruled by an overemotional manchild and his hate-powered whims and posturing.

    At least, until he gets in a squabble with Putin and the entire Northern Hemisphere lights up like a Christmas Tree.

    Persephone really wasn’t surprised that she ended up back in Denver. The girl had a lot here that she wasn’t willing to give up permanently, resulting in her returning. Being that she wasn’t new to the building, she knew it almost like the back of her hand. Her finger pressed against the elevator button once, twice after about fifteen seconds, and a third time as a minute passed. She took that as her cue to step away, deciding to glance back from her place in the stairwell doorway and towards the elevator. She saw someone there, but only from the back, making her unable to use a name. “It’s broken, sweetheart.” She called back. “Looks like you’ll have to take a little stroll with me.”

    Mira Singh had a plan for her sophomore year of university–getting As in each one of her classes even if it killed her, actually trying to be on time to something for once, finally getting around to calling her sisters back–the usual.

     However, said plan never included her major kicking her in the ass big time; keeping the two (make that three now) bratty teenagers she babysat from killing each other; harboring an enormous crush on her clueless best friend who happened to be from Pakistan, of all places; and it definitely didn’t include making up a fake boyfriend in order to get her mother off of her back.

    Fortunately, her arrogant, constantly meddling, Star Wars loving next door neighbor has just the solution. (Or so he claims.)

    Taylor, please wish me a happy birthday?? :) (March 22nd!!)

    hi Taylor! my name is Sophie :)
    a little about me:
    - I can get in really hyper moods which include me screaming song lyrics and dancing along aggressively to Bad Blood. (I have absolutely no regrets about that )
    - I am a very awkward human being haha
    - I have 2 cats & a dog (I’m a bit more of a cat person but don’t tell my dog that)
    - my fave album of yours is 1989 (all the other albums are masterpieces too)
    - at the moment, my fave song from 1989 is I Know Places
    - my fave tv shows are I Love Lucy & Friends (please get a third cat and name her Monica Geller)

    - I love books so so much it is unhealthy (my fave would be the hunger games)

    - my birthday is in less than a month - March 22nd (!!!!!)

    I don’t really know how to start this because I am a v awkward person but
    I’ve been a fan of you for about 8 years. one day I was in the car and my cousin decided to play this song she loved & it was called Our Song. I immediately loved it and I heard even more songs and I loved each one I heard
    flash forward a couple of years & I got Speak Now tickets for Christmas. I was so beyond happy I was seeing you live for the first time since I so badly wanted to go to the Fearless tour. I had such an amazing time! I remember the day Red came out, I wore ALL red. (I don’t even know how I had red pants but I did it) and I ran to my room and listened and loved it. I then got tickets to the Red tour as well which I was so beyond excited to see you for a second time! I had floor seats (not that close to the stage but STILL!!) I had the best time! I started getting ready like 5 hours before because I couldn’t wait ! at school, everyone knows I love you, I made some of my friends listen to your songs and they can’t get enough! I was so beyond excited for 1989 to be released that I got up really early just so the album could download on my phone and I could listen to it haha and I went to the store as soon as I could to get the physical copy too
    I got floor tickets to the 1989 tour which I literally can’t wait for !!!
    you have honestly helped me so much. some parts in my life I was really upset and I would just listen to your songs and I would cry to them in appreciation that you made those songs and you wrote them to help people.
    anywAY, now to the appreciation part.
    thank you Taylor for so much. thank you for writing songs. thank you for being such a kind, genuine person. thank you for helping me with so many things. thank you for caring about us so much.

    (sorry this very long and included a lot of run on sentences)

    it would mean the world to me if you saw this and wished me a happy birthday because I love you so so much and you mean a lot to me :)
