pick up things

The first echelon with 992 Estonian deportees aboard left from Tapa railway station on 26th March 1949 at 12.13 and last echelon with 1064 persons aboard left from Võru railway station on 29th March at 21.10.

The train cars were mostly standard 20-ton freight cars with no amenities. The cars, on average, fit 35 people (however the officials put around 40 to 44 people into the train cars) and their baggage which means about 0.5 square metres of space per person.

Not only the stations, but also the railways were patrolled.The patrols, among other things, picked up letters thrown out the train window by the deportees. The letters would usually inform about the deportation, send farewells to relatives and homeland, complain about conditions on the train, and express anti-Soviet feelings.

On average, the train ride lasted about two weeks, but could take almost a month. For example, a train left Võru on March 29 and arrived in Svirsk on April 22.

Some things Percy probably does because he’s a New Yorker
  • He talks really, really fast 
  • Like some people just stare at him not knowing what he said because he strings his thoughts and sentences together rapidly because c’mon he lives in Manhattan where everything is high pace 24/7
  • He talks really loud! His voice carries over well. He’s so bad at like talking softly. And people can often hear him from like a mile away lmao 
  • Annabeth jokes that she could be on the other side of MSG at a Rangers game and still be able to hear him 
  • He basically lives off of pizza, bagels, and bacon egg and cheeses. Like he’s always stopping to get a slice or pie at his local pizzeria, or at his bodega to get bagels before school or something like that
  • He’s very proud of being a New Yorker. Like we tend to be proud to be from New York, I don’t know it’s just a thing that we do (except when we complain about it all the time)  
  • Anything that is north of the Bronx, he considers Upstate New York (even though it is not. Bitter about it) 
  • The dude can weave through crowds so fluidly. He is a master of evading people barreling down the sidewalks
  • He walks really fast! In New York, if you don’t walk fast everyone hates you.  
  • He is really good at doing things with other shit and noise going on around him. Construction is everywhere, always making a lot of noise, so he’s used to it and it doesn’t bother him as much
  • He can drive a car, but he lives in the City. It is a hellish nightmare to drive through there and to get out without possibly dying in the process. So he’s not the greatest driver in the world. But he can parallel park easily. 
  • He jaywalks like it’s his fucking job. He fears nothing when he needs to get somewhere (ahem, late to school)
  • He curses a lot. Every other word that comes out of his mouth is some kind of swear (except in front of his mother)
  • He has his favorite sports teams (Mets, Jets, Rangers, Knicks) but he usually supports all New York teams (except Buffalo, way too up north and he forgets about them a lot)

A: You are late! We were suppose to be at the cinema at 5, Papá!

L: Lo siento, cariño. I had to present my essay to my teacher, the dude wouldn’t let me go unt— hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?

K: ehh…  *internal screaming*


A self-indulged au in which Lance is a single father that with all his studies and his job he barely has time to spend with his daughter (that he loves dearly), of course Math teacher Keith doesn’t like the fact that one of his favorite students seems to be neglected by her father since he has never seen him at school and she always tells him that his father is busy to even go pick her up from school.

Things changes when he sees him for the very first time, though ;3 

going back and watching this scene in episode 5 is extra painful when you know exactly what’s going on in even’s head this time around:

you can just see him trying not to let his anxiety and dread show in response to isak’s offhand comment about his mother being insane. he’s already mentally preparing himself for the rest of the conversation

i can’t even imagine the weight of isak’s rejection here (especially considering the fact that isak, in his ignorance, has no idea that he’s just caused even terrible pain).

you can actually see even saying goodbye to isak in his head and thinking it’s probably going to be the last time he gets to be with him. i can’t even imagine how difficult it would be for someone with a mental illness to hear the person they have feelings for make the blanket statement that their life, “would be better without mentally ill people around [them]

isak has no clue that any of this is transpiring, of course, which makes it even harder to watch. but you can see even processing and realizing that, no matter how much he likes isak, their relationship isn’t going to work. not the way he’d hoped.

that’s part of why this show is so amazing; we get to see the consequences for such an off-hand, ignorant remark. every single line of this show is chosen so carefully and with so much weight and as a result, isak’s throwaway words are the catalyst for the entire back half of the season.

  • Draco: Nice robe, Granger
  • Hermione: Even if I got it at 50% off? Isn't that too cheap for you?
  • Draco: Well, I'd like them better if they were 100% off
  • Hermione: Stores can't just give away clothes for free, Draco
  • Draco: ... That's not what I meant
  • Hermione: *not listening* That would be an awful way to run a business
  • Draco: ... *gives up*

ナルバキスン (look at me gwisun) ☆ d-lite

“I had to leave Venezuela. I’ve lived there my entire life. My parents are buried there. But five months ago I had to leave. It just got too dangerous. One day I was attacked while walking home from the supermarket, and I woke up on the ground. I’ve had guns pulled on me several times. I just couldn’t do it anymore. I’m trying to start a new life but it’s impossible to find a job. I’ve applied to about sixty shops so far but nobody will give me a chance. They think I’m too old. I tell them to try me for just a few days, but they won’t. I did find one part time job cleaning toilets and picking up trash. These are things I’ve never done in my life. But right now I can’t afford to be picky.”
