not to be taken away

jonas has always been a great character, young and flawed and trying his best. he was always there for isak through all the shit with his mum, and although he made some stupid choices about eva he did just want her to be happy. he just didn’t know how to make it happen.

BUT, the same way we saw isak grow up a lot, we really saw it with jonas too. in season three he’s taken a big step away from the guy teasing, ‘you only know gay songs’ to then calling out isak when he said that the dance instructor was 'so gay’. he’s obviously environmentally and socially conscious, he works hard, and the guys seem to really admire and look up to him.

so here is this sexually confident, and emotionally strong character that has always worked as a foil for people who don’t really know who they are or are struggling with what that is. celebrating self love and self care has always been central to skam characters, and jonas has so much of that, both for himself and to foster in others.

it begs the question then, DOES he get a season? do we find out more about how he was raised, and what he was taught, and how he uses that privilege for better? or does he take a back seat BECAUSE of that? does he continue to simply be there, and be available, as characters who struggle with bigger things are finally given a voice?

I’d be so interested to see his season, to see more of what makes him tick - I just wonder where they’d take it.

Alright but everyone’s saying that Percy’s gonna be the one that turns against the gods and stuff but like personally, I can see it being either Nico or Annabeth, but more like Annabeth, I mean let’s take a little look down her life…

-The gods have practically taken away her whole childhood, leaving her with one parent who marries and causes her to have an unhappy home life.

-Then, when she finally runs away, she is forced to fight off monsters at the young age of seven.

-Once she finally makes it to camp, she looses the two people that she looks up to.

-She looses Thalia to monsters, and Luke to Kronos after he starts to resent the gods.

-Things don’t get better for Annabeth after the age of twelve for the most part shes always being involved with the prophecy and quests.

-Then, once she finally gets some peace, its gets interrupted by gods once Percy gets kidnapped.

-And now she is dragged into yet another prophecy.

-It is during this time her mom tells her that Annabeth is disappointing her, which brings her to the whole journey in Rome, which results in her literally ending up in hell, having to escape.

-What makes it even better? She finds out her cousin is also infilited with the gods, as well.

So yes, while I can see why Percy might resent the gods, I think he cares too much about others to turn away from them. Annabeth on the other hand has continuously lost friends, family, the chance at a normal life, sense of safety, and even her sanity (Tartarus) because of the gods, and this all started at the age of seven. I will say, however that I think one reason why both Percy and Annabeth would never turn away from the gods is that Luke Castellan will always remain a firm example of what happens when you turn your back on the gods, and therefore others.

I wonder if it would be wrong of me to try and finance enough money to be able to go back to college. See heres the thing, I originally had a full ride to University of Oregon right, I didn’t have to pay a dime, all I had to do was keep my grades up and attend classes and I’d get to attend any class I wanted to at their expense. 

But here’s the thing, I started to get really sick, both physically and mentally, and there were several really close deaths in my family at the same time, so I just couldn’t attend class because I was too sick, I was too psychotic [literally, I’m schizophrenic they didn’t know at the time so I wasn’t getting treatment], and was grieving the loss of some close family members, so I couldn’t make the attendance record, so my scholarship was taken away, but that isn’t the problem.

The problem is I owe University of Oregon itself $12,891.65 for not showing up to classes.

And the problem with this is, until I pay this off I can never go back to any college ever again, because FAFSA will not give you a loan unless you send all of your transcripts to the university you want to attend, and University of Oregon has frozen my transcripts.

I attempted to apply to a nearby university here, they accepted me, but said they couldn’t register me for classes or get me funding via federal aid until I sent my University of Oregon transcripts, they said this was the case with any university I would ever attempt to apply to. 

I worked so hard to be so near graduation, and all those courses that had already been paid for are frozen because of one term where I got too sick to function. 

It’s my dream to study physics and mathematics at school, I’m really interested in these fields, and I’m devastated that I’ll never be able to go to university ever again, because of this. I just wanted to go to school and learn about things I’m interested in, and now I never can again.

… would it be appropriate to try and raise money over the course of years via this blog to try and go back to university one day in the future, or is that selfish of me? I honestly don’t know, there’s just so many other people who need money to survive, and I just want money to go back to school, so I don’t know.

Like I don’t care how long it takes to raise it … I just ….. want to go back to school eventually, and every month they add 87 dollars to the total.

I’m disabled and on SSI so I can’t ever pay this back by myself, it is literally impossible. Is it selfish of me to make a youcaring for this and advertise it on this blog? Again I don’t care how long it takes I just want to go back to school sometime in my life?

She had looked down at her feet and known, then, because of a painting, that what she stood on had only been woven together a couple thousand miles away in her own tower, was only by accident known as Mexico, and so Pierce had taken her away from nothing, there’d been no escape. What did she so desire escape from? Such a captive maiden, having plenty of time to think, soon realizes that her tower, its height and architecture, are like her ego only incidental: that what really keeps her where she is is magic, anonymous and malignant, visited on her from outside and for no reason at all. Having no apparatus except gut fear and female cunning to examine this formless magic, to understand how it works, how to measure its field strength, count its lines of force, she may fall back on superstition, or take up a useful hobby like embroidery, or go mad, or marry a disk jockey. If the tower is everywhere and the knight of deliverance no proof against its magic, what else?

With his wounds fully healed, he was given a final sign off from the vets before being taken away with RSPCA Animal Collection Officer, Annie, for release!

My phone needs to be taken away at night (submission)

i’m literally still shook from opening up my inbox this morning. i’ve been thinking about this all day and i dont know if i’ll ever stop 

i was thinking about how taking away certain people from groups changes dynamics of those groups, and putting in context of gorillaz, i’ve come to this conclusion:

Without Russel, the band wouldn’t have an anchor and everything would become chaos

Without Noodle, the glue is taken away and the band falls apart and goes separate from each other

Without Murdoc, things would be considerably calmer but i also feel like he gives the band direction? idk since he’s the self proclaimed leader i feel like the group would lose some of that

Now i’m trying to figure out: what happens when you take away 2D? i’ve been thinking so much there’s something missing without him but i cant figure out what

anonymous asked:

What is Quinn thinking when he is taken away from his girls by the FBI, just look at his face and the way he stretches his neck to have a last glimpse of them?! Is he afraid to have scared Franny and upset Carrie ? Or do you think he is afraid to leave them unprotected? I just love his alpha male protectiveness towards his little family. I think he feels like they are his family now.

Since Quinn fully believed “they” weren’t going to let him leave (eg, he thought they would kill him), I assumed he was thinking this was the last time he would ever see them. Hence why he was straining so hard not to lose sight of them.

As regular viewers know, entanglements are a common site at Wildlife Aid, but sometimes the victim frees itself before we arrive!

This swan had got itself caught up in a net at Chelsea Football ground. Luckily it had managed to free itself, but seemed to be immobile and there were fears of injury.

On arrival Simon was greeted by a subdued, stationary, but angry swan. After a thorough checkup, Simon was satisfied there were no injuries to the swan, and so it was taken to the nearest lake and released, where it happily swam away!

We always love a rescue-release 🙂:)

Should we look to kings and princes to put right the inequalities between rich and poor?  Should we require soldiers to come and seize the rich person’s gold and distribute it among his destitute neighbors?  Should we beg the emperor to impose a tax on the rich so great that it reduces them to the level of the poor and then to share the proceeds of that tax among everyone?  Equality imposed by force would achieve nothing, and do much harm.  Those who combined both cruel hearts and sharp minds would soon find ways of making themselves rich again.  Worse still, the rich whose gold was taken away would feel bitter and resentful; while the poor who received the gold from the hands of soldiers would feel no gratitude, because no generosity would have prompted the gift.  Far from bringing moral benefit to society, it would actually do moral harm.  Material justice cannot be accomplished by compulsion, a change of heart will not follow.  The only way to achieve true justice is to change people’s heart’s first - and then they will joyfully share their wealth.

Wow I just unfollowed a Caryl shipper

Because she loved N3gan. Not in an “I love to hate him” way but genuinely loved N3gan because he “was against sexual assault”. Really. Wow.

I can’t follow someone who can ship Caryl which is a BEAUTIFUL relationship and story and yet also somehow thinks that N3gan isn’t raping the women he’s with just because it isn’t by force.

Newsflash - rape doesn’t have to be by force. If a woman’s agency is hindered in ANY way, by threats, by her choice being taken away, by Leverage or whatever means, her “choice” is invalidated and it is RAPE.

I’m not really a fan of supergirl but I did watch a chunk of it, because I thought it was silly and harmless.

but mon-el?

that’s the kind of man who tears you down, tries to break your self-confidence until you believe you won’t get better than him. until you believe you have no worth without him and he’s the only one who loves you.

and then you’re trapped in an abusive relationship with a spoiled brat who won’t stop until he’s taken over your life and sucked away your strength.

go fuck yourself, gaston.

juliamasseyyyy  asked:

absolute favorite romione moment out of every book/film?

The book version of Malfoy Manor when Hermione is taken away by Bellatrix and Ron practically screams himself raw for her. I will always hold a grudge against David Yates for messing that scene up. Only points to him for making Ron grab her from the falling chandelier when others run away to save themselves. 

anonymous asked:

As a mother, the door just meant she didn't want Franny to see Quinn being taken away. It's what we do to shield our kids.

This is a possible explanation but Franny’s face is buried in Carrie’s shoulder – she doesn’t have a view to Quinn in the first place. 

@frangipaniflower001 says: it’s probably meant as a symbol but as a mom I want to weigh in. Franny’s face buried in her shoulder or not - there is a SWAT team in their home, restraining Quinn and taking him into custody. Carrie has no idea what Franny witnessed during the day. Shutting the door to save her from witnessing a traumatic situation is absolutely the right thing to do.
