Open When… You Want Ideas for Date Night

You already know that I will undoubtedly love anything that you plan, so long as it isn’t another horror movie. This is just a few ideas in case you’re feeling lazy or you want to know exactly what I’m looking for in a date. Either way, I will appreciate the work you put towards our relationship, whether it’s picking something simple off the list or creating a date that is entirely unique, just like you. 

  • Diamondbacks Game: Obviously, you’re not as passionate about the sport as I am but I still think this would be entertaining for both of us! The vendors at the field offer pretzels, ice cream, giant caramel apples, beer, and more. Ooh, maybe if I’m lucky, we’ll be featured on the kiss cam. 
  • Game Night: Much like the ones we have had before, it would consist of whiskey and Lord of the Rings Risk. That is three of our favorite things right there: alcohol, Tolkien, and each other! Of course, spring for video games instead. I’m always open to replaying Until Dawn or Wolf Among Us. 
  • Hiking: Arizona has so many neat trails to hike. In the city alone, there is South Mountain, Camelback Mountain, Papago Park, and A Mountain, which we have done before. Weather permitting, we should definitely spend a morning or afternoon with Kato in the mountains. 
  • Dinner and a Movie: You know how much I love the classic dinner and a movie date. It is just about the simplest one to plan, so long as it isn’t a horror movie again. 
  • Sunsplash: I can’t believe you’ve never been before! It’s so much fun with the water slides, wave pool, and lily pads. Honestly, this would be the best idea for a double date. All of the inner tubes come in pairs! 
  • Tolkien Movie Marathon: We’re both in love with the series. Spending the whole day watching the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings trilogy would be more than perfect to me. On the other hand, you could always read it to me if you wanted me to fall asleep right away. 
  • Stargazing: This would be most ideal if you ever took me to Cornville, as there are significantly less buildings and city life to hide the stars. It would be even better if you were to pack up a bunch of blankets and pillows in the bed of your truck so we could lay next to each other. Too bad you don’t like me. 
  • Drive In Movie: West Wind Glendale is just about the only drive in theatre left in the metropolitan area. I would love to take your truck out there for a night. Plus, it’s easy to sneak in snacks since we’re cheap as fuck. 
  • Mill Avenue: Goodness, there is so much to do in Tempe. We could revisit Tempe Beach Park, where we have attended multiple concerts together. We could always go back to Spinelli’s, since you fell head over heels in love with their pizza. I think it was love at first bite. Oh, man, I am so funny. Anywho, we could also grab frozen custard from Rita’s, get frozen yogurt from Mojo, or shop at the Hippie Gypsy, which you would throughly enjoy.
  • Slide Rock and Salt River: I’ve never been! I think it would be so much fun if we were to get a group of people together to go during the summer and make a day of it. We could even take my car so you don’t have to drive! 
  • Dinner Date: I’m sure it’s not your first choice but it’s such a simple plan for a date night. Buying me food is the easiest way to make me happy, though you do a good job of that anyways. 
  • Frozen Yogurt: Quite possibly the greatest dessert option ever. The best part about frozen yogurt dates is the red velvet flavor, which you must try if you haven’t already. Maybe, I enjoy it so much because the low temperature of the frozen treat reminds me of the icy coldness of my own heart. 
  • Movie Marathon: We have so many movie series to go through and it really breaks my heart that you’re not into superhero movies like I am. Nonetheless, we could still watch Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Disney movies. 
  • Video Game Night: As I have mentioned before, I am always willing to play Wolf Among Us or Until Dawn, though I am horrible with the quick time events. I would also like playing any other games you think I would enjoy! Practically every video game you have suggested, I have loved. I’m open to any of your other recommendations! 
  • Mini Golf: Every couple goes mini-golfing. Sunsplash Golfland has a miniature golf course that is near you! Should the weather align with out plans, it would be an adorable date.

anonymous asked:

how do you say "i dont know how to express this feeling" and can you explain the grammar

Okay, so I used the Papago app to translate for me. Since I’m on my work computer I had to type it into google translate which actually got me the same thing. I’m really loving this app you guys, seriously, download it. 

나는 이 감정을 어떻게 표현해야 할지 모르겠다.

Breaking it down, we have the vocabulary first:

나는 - I (with 는 to signify topic)

이 - this

감정을  - feelings, emotions ( with 을 to signify object)

어떻게 - how

표현해야 - comes from the dictionary form 표현하다 which means to express

할 - is a form of 하다 to do

모르겠다 - is a form of 모르다 to not know.

Leading into the grammar and formation of the sentence:

겠다 usually brings with it future tense, however, when used with 모르다 is does not. It’s just a very common and a bit more polite way of saying you don’t know 

-아/어야 하다 is a verb stem indicating that you have to do something. 

I looked towards the great interwebs to help explain the other parts of  the sentence and here’s a little of what I got:

“ When you want to say you don’t know something, you embed a question using 지. In essence what you are saying is “I don’t know the answer to this question.” “  You can find a similar question on the website for a detailed analysis of that example as well.

So following the SOV sentence structure, we have  나는(S) +  감정을(O) +  어떻게(Adv) +  표현해야 할지 모르겠다(V). Which gives you a translation of “I don’t know how to express this feeling.”

- 케이시

In 1925 Coca Cola made a lucky watch fob in the shape of a swastika with the slogan, “Drink Coca Cola In Bottles 5¢.”.

At that time, the Swastika was still a symbol of ‘Good Luck’ taken from the ’Whirling Log’ used in the US by Native American Navajo, Papago, Apache, and Hopi tribes. 

(Also the symbol used throughout history by the Celts, Indians and Greeks amongst other nationalities and religions).

The word swastika came from the Sanskrit word svastika, meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote auspiciousness, or any piece of luck or well-being.

It is composed of su- meaning “good, well” and asti “being”. Suasti thus means “well-being.” The suffix -ka either forms a diminutive or intensifies the verbal meaning, and suastika might thus be translated literally as “that which is associated with well-being,”.

 

 

anonymous asked:

Wondering why in a response to an anonymous a few posts back you say swastikas are never the answer. Cultural appropriation? I thought many cultures used variations of this design positively. I can see how a blond haired blue eyed person may not be able to safely pull it off so easily but if the design is properly /creatively executed how could it never be "the answer"?

Allow me to post a picture. The document being signed is being signed by the Navajo, Papago, Apache and Hopi communities, and the text reads:

 Because the above ornament, which has been a sign of friendship among our forefathers for many centuries has been desecrated recently by another nation of peoples.
Therefore it is resolved that henceforth from this date on and forever more our tribes renounce the use of the emblem commonly known today as the swastika or fylfot on our blankets, baskets, art objects, sandpaintings and clothing.

In the 1940s, multiple native communities recognized that even though the swastika is a traditional symbol for them, it was being used to actively hurt another marginalized community. They then GAVE UP that traditional symbol out of empathy for the people being hurt.

It’s not cultural appropriation to get a tattoo of a swastika or fylfot. What it IS is asserting your right to permanently mark your body with a symbol that was and still is used to terrorized Jews and Rroma. Tattooing a swastika means putting your belief in the ~true meaning~ of the swastika over the very real fear of pain and death that the swastika still embodies for Jews and Rroma people.

We’re not going to debate this— if someone (especially a white person) believes their right to “reclaim” the symbol is more important than the pain and fear they will cause any Jew or Rroma person who sees it, then they’re being anti-semitic and anti-rromani.

[Super late edit: We are not suggesting that members of religious groups which have an unbroken history of using the swastika, like many Asian communities, are required to eschew it– however if you are a member of that community and live in Europe or America you do need to consider the context in which it might be seen, and the psychological affects the symbol currently has on other oppressed groups.]

Life is Strange Theory: Butterfly part 1

This gonna be a long post. I really tried to study the butterfly as a culture and origin. It is may seems complicated.. but yeah very complicated. I’ll show you what I learned and I take my point an conclusion afterwards. I might split this into 2 parts.
We saw that the blue butterfly is in the bathroom, she’s actually gain Max interest, alluring her to hidden place in right moment before Nathan and Chloe come in. Just before the Shot, the butterfly actually flipped it wings, after the shot, Max shouting “NO” and she rewind the time.

The butterfly in the game is certainly a Morpho genus butterfly. But I couldn’t classify it for sure until I really studied its behavior in the game. Yet, I believe it’s a Morpho paleides or “Blue Morpho Butterfly” or “The Emperor”. Blue coloration shared by most Morpho species may be a case of Müllerian mimicry, or may be pursuit aposematism or broadcasting a warning signal of dangerous predator. Morpho meaning “Change” or “Modified” in Greek.
