positive example

I can’t believe I had to read the sentence: “But Luke wasn’t a father figure in anywhere other than his head and Lorelai should have made sure he knew that.”

Lorelai literally said/wrote the words: “ Luke has been a sort of father figure in my daughter’s life.” 

It’s almost like this person thinks Rory was forced to spend time with Luke where as it’s the complete opposite. He didn’t have to make her a coffee cake or blow up balloons or come to her birthday parties. He didn’t have to go to her caterpillar’s funeral. He didn’t have to give her his mother’s pearls. He didn’t have to listen to her when she told him the car accident wasn’t Jess’ fault. He didn’t have to let her in the diner when she showed up suddenly when she and Lorelai were estranged. He didn’t have to attend her high school graduation, but she wanted him there “Okay, good, I want you there.” and he wasn’t going to let her down. Her biological dad was not there for any of these events but Luke was! That speaks volumes! He was there because he loves Rory unconditionally! She may not exactly see him a father figure, but she loves him too and if you try to tell me otherwise I will fight you. 

Rory may have had high hopes for Christopher to be a good dad, but he wasn’t and Luke was a good male role model/father like figure in her life! 

god i hate (love) that scene where lukas stands outside that club and sees those gay couples because ????? they’re not sexualized???

like there are those two men who embrace, and then this (cute, wonderful, makes me smile) couple and they’re holding hands and swinging their hands together and just talking and being tender and sweet

and it’s. so important. because here’s this teenage (!!!) boy who’s so afraid. of being tender and intimate with another boy. and he sees these positive examples of just….. being together. and he still averts his eyes and he looks so…. sad but like he’s thinking so hard about this. and it gives him courage. to be tender and say a soft thing to philip and gently kiss him and smile. to be kind to himself. to just be.

How To Attract What You Desire:

Before you begin:

• Know what you want. What you really want. And don’t think of “how” you’ll get it.
• Write the desire in present tense on a card. It is now your goal card.
• Carry this card with you and read it often. This is putting the desire into your subconscious mind.
• Check if your goal is really what you want. Can you imagine bigger? Are you letting fear stop you? Are you answering your soul’s calling with this? 

Night:

• How you fall asleep determines what shows up in your life. Everytime. Without fail. So we start our day how we fell asleep the night before, actually. Ask your self one question before you sleep: “If my wishes were fulfilled, how would I feel?” Fall asleep to that question satisfied.
• Record an MP3 or voice note of your OWN voice, reciting positive affirmations. Get examples online but personalize them. Your subconscious mind trusts your own voice. Use it. 
• Never ever let yourself fall asleep feeling stress or failure. Don’t invite it in. 

Morning:

• When your eyes open, set your intention for the day. 
• Did you have any dreams last night? Write them down.
• Write 5 things you’re grateful for. Increase to 10 after a while and begin to include wishes that are yet to manifest e.g. “I’m grateful I now weigh __” 

Day:

• Read Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. (PDF’s online) Read slowly and reflectively. 
• Read Feeling Is The Secret by Neville Goddard (PDF’s online) 
• The Secret book/DVD is great for beginners but you’re going to have to dig deeper to pull this off. 
Do what makes you smile. Read, play your music, call a friend, go for walks. Do whatever you can to lighten your mood. 
Write about your desire as if it’s already happened. 
Visualize your life ASSUMING the desire has already happened. How do you feel? What are you wearing? Where are you? Was manifesting easy and fun?

Remember:

Bruce Lee, Jim Carrey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Oprah Winfrey, Big Sean, Conor McGregor and countless others have used this formula. It works, and it will work for you. 

And please share this post. You never know who might be waiting to see it. 

Finish Your Antibiotics

I’m sorry, this isn’t Jojo at all but I think I’ve had it for today. As a pharmacy tech, I’m tired of hearing “Well, I started to feel better so I didn’t finish them.” I always knew this but now as a Molecular and Cellular Biology major, I not only know why but how. If you’re willing to heed my advice from the title, good; be on your way. If you need to know more, keep reading.

It’s widely known–to some extent–that not completing a regiment of antibiotics can result in resistant bacteria, or even super bacteria.

But in an infection, you already have resistant bacteria lurking. Not taking antibiotics doesn’t literally create resistant bacteria. So how, then, do the antibiotics take care of the resistant ones?

A lot of antibiotics aren’t bacterialcidal: They don’t actually kill them. Many inhibit growth by some mechanism depending if the bacteria is gram negative or gram positive. For example, penicillin inhibits growth by disrupting the formation of a peptidoglycan layer on gram positive bacteria. Others target the LPS layer on gram negative ones. This keeps the non resistant bacteria at bay. So what kills the resistant ones? Your immune system. Antibiotics buy time and energy for your immune system to recognize and destroy the resistant strains. Your immune system is intelligent in that sense and can form antibodies for new illnesses. It’s important to give your immune system this time because bacteria grow, mutate, and transfer genetic material at astonishing rates. If you wanted to look at a microcosm of the mechanics that go into evolution, you’ve got it with bacteria. 

There are three methods aside from binary fission in which they transfer genes (I won’t get into the minutia of the form of informational material): Transformation, transduction and conjugation.

In transformation, a bacteria can pickup lost genes from a ruptured and dead cell.

Transduction is a way to transfer information via a viral vector.

In conjugation, genes are transferred through something called a pilus: It’s a bridge between two cells that pipes a copy of the information from one cell to another receptive cell and is the only method that doesn’t involve killing either cells. Resistant bacteria like to give around that resistance information like they’re burning a CD for their friends.

So please finish your antibiotics if you’ve been given them. It doesn’t matter if you’ve started to feel better or even great. Finish them.

(Hey science people, If I’ve missed anything or even got something wrong, help me out. There’s obviously lengthy stuff I’ve left out but I think I got the basics).

Don’t focus on what has been lost. Focus on what’s been gained in the absence of what once was.

If you think shallura wouldn’t be a good couple on vld just because it’s not gay and therefore isn’t “good representation”, unfollow me right damn now.

Shiro is a disabled, canon japanese man with ptsd and supportive friends, meanwhile Allura is a hella bad ass black woman. The two of them very clearly show some sort of chemistry, and, not trying to upset anyone, but it also doesn’t have a creepy age gap/power imbalance.

Representation comes in many different ways, and shallura is a very positive and diverse example and should not be ignored.

A friend shared the following advice with me…“Think positive! For example: I fell down the stairs today and thought, "Wow! I sure fell down those stairs fast!”

It just made me laugh.. but, I recognize that as I look for the positive I’m each experience, I am happier and feel more love for myself and others.

We get to choose how we live and view life. Yes, bad things happen to us all. But living with gratitude brings greater peace, hope, and love to me and those whose life I touch.

Misc. Trivia About Donald Duck and Others in the Comics

-Donald is an excellent cook. Yes, really.

-Scrooge loves Donald’s cooking, and waits for any dignified opportunity to visit him to stuff his face for free. Daisy loves his cooking as well.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: glenn and abraham were two of the best characters the show ever had. glenn was a cinnamon roll who would go to the ends of the earth for maggie, not to mention an amazing example of positive representation of asian-american characters, and abraham was a prime example of how a traditionally masculine character can still be sensitive and warm and caring to the people he loves, plus he had the best lines in the show. they were amazing and i'm going to miss them so much. I hate this fucking show but I love this fucking show.

Shout out to Toadette for being completely ambivalent towards good and evil 

In Mario party 6 and 8 Toadette’s team names with the evil characters are strangely positive. For example her and Waluigi’s name is the ‘diabolical duo’ and Wario and Toadette are called ‘secret friends’

Also she is the only character in Mario Superstar Baseball to not have bad chemistry with anyone (toad in comparison has bad chemistry with Bowser, Wario and Waluigi)

what i hate is that im already seeing dudebros complain about jacob in fantastic beasts saying that ‘feminazis’ are going to complain that he ends up with an attractive girl but if the genders had been reversed we’d be all for it - and im like lol no … jacob is an example of positive masculinity and he’s actually a genuine, likeable person! whose storyline isn’t centered around being an asshole! who is funny and kind and has a great personality! who is down on his luck but works towards his dreams! who is realistic - unlike the plethora of seth rogen-esque schlubby dudes who are DICKS yet still manage to have a wonderful supportive girlfriend whose only role is to be overlooked… like our complaint isn’t chubby guy ends up with pretty girl it’s that below average, unconvincing, poorly written “protagonist” always seems to be given a cute little reward for scraping the barrel of human decency lmao. for god’s sake the man opens a bakery keep your fedora hands away from him

Thoughts on “The Trial”

Ugh, I need to talk about Dib more, but I honestly have so much to say about Zim. Like how you know he’s afraid of something or slightly upset or disappointed just by looking at his face. A lot of people seem to think that Zim is too dumb to understand when things aren’t going his way, when really, he is actually pretty aware of what is going on. He just chooses to ignore any upsetting information for the sake of his morale and decides to think positive. The biggest example of this was in The Trial, which if the show had continued long enough, would definitely be in my top 10 favorite episodes of the show. This episode basically pushes Zim into a corner and crushes his defense mechanisms until he can’t deny the obvious anymore:

  • ZIM (CONCERNED) EXISTENCE EVALUATION? But..THOSE are for criminals…and space clowns.
  • ZIM (AGHAST) A world that does not remember ZIM??
  • ZIM looks around at the hateful eyes upon him. The Tallest LAUGH insanely, and the crowd soon follows suit. The BRAINS lift ZIM up, and even THEY are laughing now. Things do not look good, and ZIM knows it.
  • ZIM (UNCOMFORTABLE) No, she called me just last week. Yeah… she’s doin’ fine. Really.
  • ZIM’s looks up, shocked.
  • ZIM’s eyes widen with dread. He spits out food.
  • Now ZIM looks really sick, and actually scared for his life.
  • ZIM seems to shrink.
  • ZIM (HORRIFIED) But I can’t LIVE without my PAK
  • ZIM watches a monitor, horrified, as the data-stream is shown leaving a ZIM icon and flowing into a trashcan icon. His life is ending.
  • ZIM (PANICKING) No… THIS IS A MISTAKE!! Have I mentioned that I AM ZIM!!!??

What’s neat about this is how the situation deconstructs his character. We get to see Zim being forced to acknowledge some pretty harsh things about himself: that the Tallests hate him, his entire race hate’s him, he’s failed to prove himself to the empire, and the icing on the cake: he’s a defective. Not only that, he’s simultaneously being hit with the fact that he’s about to die! This episode is about Zim at his lowest point, and the extreme contrast that follows later is what makes it for me. This episode has Zim’s emotions going through extremes: from the sickening dread of being forced to watch his own impending death, to extreme relief and pride of being dubbed, “THE MOST INCREDIBLE IRKEN EVER!!!” and getting 10 free minutes of piloting the massive. With that in mind, imagine how this episode would’ve looked animated! Can you imagine what Zim fearing for his life would’ve looked like?
