pretending to know what i'm doing

…and they all lived happily ever after.

Moodboard Yourself Challenge

I was tagged by nobody but I saw @snowconeskywalker do this and I realized - I’ve been a bad Tumblr-er lately getting tagged in several memes but not doing them because I’m the most boring person to ever boring and I really don’t know what to say…but something visual?  That works a little better.  (Look, it’s the idealized me, lol.)

Any of y’all wanna do it?  I’ll go ahead and tag @ta-dala @jadelotusflower @celinamarniss @teagrl @jedihafren @binarysunset @siths-sirenia @operaticspacetrash @the-far-bright-center @tato0ine-luke @luke-shywalker @lukeleiahan to start off with.  :3

Okay so you know that prompt that’s like “we pretend to be engaged because this bakery/shop is doing free wedding cake tastings for couples and I love free cake”? Well I’ve yet to see it done for Andreil which I don’t get because like y’all know that Andrew would never say no to free cake! So as such, please now enjoy my ramblings…. 

  • So it goes like this:
  • Andrew and Neil are casually strolling down Main Street with all the shops and restaurants and stuff
  • Matt’s birthday is coming up or something and Neil has to find the ultimate best bro gift
  • And he drags Andrew along
  • So they’re going from shop to shop and Neil sucks at buying gifts so he is StrugglingTM
  • And as they walk to the next shop, they pass this bakery with a sign out front that says “Getting married? Come in for a free wedding cake tasting!”
  • And Andrew is like free cake? Fuck yeah
  • So he takes Neil’s hand in his and pulls him into the bakery
  • And Neil is a bit dazed and confused because he’s not used to hand holding in public like this??? PDA??? What is happening???
  • But he follows Andrew anyways

Loving with a Little Twist by hrrytomlinson

Summary:

“What are you going to do?”

“I don’t know Niall! I just promised my mother I’m bringing my boyfriend - a boyfriend I don’t have - to Thanksgiving dinner. What should I do? I can’t call back and be like, ‘Oh yeah mom, that boyfriend I said that I have, I don’t actually have. Sorry to disappoint you.’ My life is ruined.” Harry returns to suffocating himself with the pillow.

Niall laughs and Harry growls at his best friend’s unwarranted happiness in this life-ending situation. Harry is fucked. Fuck. He needs a boyfriend. Fuck.

Harry/Louis Thanksgiving themed fake/pretend relationship // word count: 29k

(Susie) You know, I've been trying to figure out what to call myself for the longest of times.

I decided to do some reading up on it because I received an asks asking me if I was first generation/second generation.

I really did not know how to answer this because although I was born in Zambia. My mother moved to America when I was 2 years and I moved when I was 2 ½ years old. I have been raised my entire life as an American. I found my answer and it certainly puts me at ease to know that their is a term and hopefully others who feel the same and are having identification issues due to early immigration.

(ME): “Children who arrive in their early childhood (ages 0 to 5) are referred to as 1.75 generation immigrants since their experiences are closer to a true 2nd-generation immigrant who was born in the Country they live in: they retain virtually no memory of their country of birth, were too young to go to school to learn to read or write in the parental language in the home country, typically learn the language of the Country they immigrate to without an accent and are almost entirely socialized there.”

“The term 1.5 generation or 1.5G refers to two types of people. Individuals who immigrate to a new country before or during their early teens (Asher 2011). They earn the label the “1.5 generation” because they bring with them or maintain characteristics from their home country, meanwhile engaging in assimilation and socialization with their new country. Their identity is thus, a combination of new and old culture and tradition.

Depending on the age of immigration, the community where they settle, extent of education in their native country, and other factors, 1.5 generation individuals identify with their countries of origin to varying degrees. However, their identification is affected by their experiences growing up in the new country. 1.5G individuals are often bilingual and find it easier to assimilate into local culture and society than people who immigrate as adults. Many 1.5 generation individuals also, become bi-cultural, combining both cultures - culture from the country of origin with the culture of the new country.“

**Something I just had to get off my chest

It’s that hour again, so it seems. The sentimental hour. The hour where thoughts seem to get… a bit depressing. It happens to all of us, sometimes it hurts, sometimes it causes confusion, and sometimes it creates more questions than answers. 

Zack looked at his phone, no one was on. It wasn’t like he really needed to talk right now. Not to people but… 

        Zack has entered the chatroom

>: You know… I don’t feel right sometimes. 

>: It’s like I’m depressed but I’m not. 

>: I’m not sad but then again I’m not exactly happy either. 

>: I can laugh and joke around and smile. I can cry and feel angry. But at night it feels empty. 

>: You see, it feels like people are moving and growing and striving for something and I’m… just here. 

>: Like I want to follow and move and grow but I’ve fallen into a hole and no matter how hard I try I can’t get out. 

>: But I’m not naive. I know I am not the only one who feels this way. Even the people who I perceive as moving may feel stagnant in their eyes. But I just can’t help it. 

>: I understand that it’s normal to feel this way, even though it feels so abnormal. 

>: … 

>: heh, why even bring it up? 

>: You can all say, “Same” “I feel this a lot” “I feel this everyday” but what does that do for me? 

>: Selfish isn’t it? But can’t help it. 

     <: Well it lets you know you’re not alone. 

>: I already know this. But it feels like I am alone. 

     <: Because you are. 

>: … 

     <: In a sense. 
     <: Sure you have this as some form of social interaction but out there you’re alone. 

>: Yeah. 

     <: And in here you can only go so far. 
     <: You can make a few steps and go here and there but then what? 
     <: … 
     <:Well? Then what? 

>: I’m trying to figure that out. 

     <: For how long? Hmm? 

>: Until I have an answer. 

     <: and that answer is in your little safe bubble? 
     <: It’s only in there? No where else? 

>: I have places where I get out of my safe bubble. 

    <: They’re not really “places”. It’s just another location where a safe bubble is waiting for you. 

>: … 

>: I want to… get out. But it’s 

>: Intimidating. 

     <: So you’ll never move? You’re always going to be stuck here? 
     <: Waiting for an answer that’s out there? 
     <: Out there where there’s no one. No one you can really talk to. 

>: I have people who I can talk to out there. 

      <: No, the out there you’re talking about is still in here. I’m talking about OUT there. 

>: It’s intimidating. 

     <: That’s the way it goes. 
     <: But you have to try. 

>: I am 

     <: Not hard enough. 
     <: You want to know why everyone is moving and you’re still just here? 
     <: Because they face what they fear, and even if it’s hard, they go OUT there. 
     <: and you? You stay in here. 
     <: Where it’s safe 
     <: Where you’re sure no one will hurt you. 
     <: Where you’re sure you will never fail. 
     <: Where you can’t even grow. Not enough at least. 
     <: You’re a plant whose roots are all tangled, trying to prosper but has no where to go. 

>: I will, one day. 

    <: one day? 
    <: maybe one week? 
    <: One year? 

>: I’m trying. 

     <: Not hard enough. 
     <: So when? 
     <: When will you let your roots spread and grow? 

>: …

ya’ll y’all wanted a selfie, ya’ll y’all got one two! 📸

I promised this like a month ago now let’s all go back to our simming and pretend this didn’t happen

Shit APH Australia Does #43

Dance the nutbush, anytime, anywhere, whenever the song comes on

In the near future...

FBI: Miss, we found some questionable material on your computer…
Me: *thinking* Oh shit, all that music I illegally downloaded back in middle school…
Me: *out loud* I don’t know what you’re talking about.
FBI: May we come in?
Me: *thinking* FUCK! How did they find out! It’s been like ten years and at least five pcs since…
Me: *out loud* It’s cool, I have nothing to hide
FBI Agent: *opens laptop* Would you mind explaining this?

Me: *sweats nervously*
FBI: You do realize this is a 15 year old, right?
Me: I don’t know how that got there!
FBI: Riiiiiight

anonymous asked:

What do you think are the ghostbusters' (plus kevin's if you want to) favorite breakfast foods?

Oh god I’m terrible at doing this and you probably wanted a short answer but something happened and now it’s this. Hope you like it. 

Abby: soup. she pretends it’s leftovers from the other day and really ‘we can’t just throw it away’ but they all know she calls Bennie before any of the other Ghostbusters wake up and makes him wait two blocks away from the firehouse (he complains every time). She’ll slip back in, put it in the microwave and wait until someone comes down the stairs before taking it out and eating it. Of course, they all know. Nobody says anything, though. You don’t mess with Abby and her soup. 

Holtz: she forgets to eat. Mostly. When she does eat, it’s peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with Doritos in the middle. She claims it’s good. Nobody has dared to eat it so far. She eats way too many of them, her excuse always being “I don’t have time to stop and eat while I’m working. things could blow up. you all want me to blow this place up?” Erin sometimes argues that that’s not how it works. But most of the times she forgets to eat. She’ll wake up, stumble to the bathroom to get ready and then disappears into her lab. Erin has made a habit of stopping by the coffee shop next to her house to pick something up in case she doesn’t eat. In the beginning the bag consisted of a sandwich, some fruit, and a donut. It’s just three donuts now. She always puts it on the engineer’s desk when she’s not there. They never talk about, but they both know. 

Erin: during her time at Columbia Erin had gotten used to having to quickly eat something in the morning that was easy and would keep her healthy. Salad had been the perfect solution. A quinoa fruit salad to be precise. It wasn’t really that bad, and it kept her in shape. Plus, Erin Gilbert liked repetition. Every day was the same. She’d eat her fruit salad, go to Columbia, teach, come home, eat, work some more and go to sleep. She liked it. So yes, maybe it was a bit boring, but at leat it was predictable, and predictable was easy. She could work with that. Her life right now was about as far from boring and predictable as it could possibly be. Still, the salad stayed. It was a nice stable factor in her crazy life. (lately, though, her salad was often left untouched, because really, picking up something like a bagel for herself at the coffee place was just as easy right? She was already there anyways.)

Patty: Patty’s pretty sure she’s about the only normal person in the firehouse. She spends most of her days chasing Holtzmann around the place while she yells at her to please, for the love of god, not leave any nuclear-untested stuff on their desks. Especially Kevin’s. She’s taken on the task to cook for them as well. Which usually ends in even more fire than Holtz’s work does. After a while, they make it a habit to have an extra fire extinguisher in the kitchen. Still, Patty has to take care of these crazy kids and make sure they eat enough so this whole place won’t turn into ashes. So she makes pancakes. A lot of them. They always say that she shouldn’t. Not that they don’t appreciate it, but it seems like a lot of trouble and they eat their own stuff in the morning. (or don’t, in case of Holtz and Kevin). She eats a couple and places the rest in the fridge. She smiles when, at the end of the day, the plate is always empty. 

Kevin: is he a robot? could be. They don’t really see him eat. ever. (which also could be because he usually doesn’t come in until 9:30 and leaves around noon to practice for his hide and seek tournament). Holtzmann has tried to determine if he really is a robot, made to spy on them. she’s definitely more serious about this than the others are. Erin claims to have seen him eat an apple one time. So far, there’s no evidence of this ever happening.

Hey fellow giants!

When you’re kind of just hanging around, and want to idly cuddle a tiny, what do you use to pretend? I usually use my phone, because I’m often imagining whoever I’m texting as a tiny. But I sometimes feel like it’s too hard or I can’t help but notice it doesn’t have the right dimensions?

For instance, I know that @tiny-taker uses a little cowboy doll, but I’m really curious to see how other giants like to make themselves feel giant! Feel free to add to this post.

PSA: Don’t ‘ship’ idols and sexualise every thing two males do together if you don’t actually support the LGBTQ+ community. Don’t. You can’t have it both ways, you can’t use our sexuality as a means of entertainment and to get yourself off, but then turn round and not care about REAL people in these situations.

The amount of bullshit I’ve seen excusing what Jaebum said on Celebrity Bromance is fucking ridiculous. Here’s some words from an Actual LGBT Person: It was homophobic. There’s no misconstruing or people overreacting. Saying you would beat someone up for wanting to take a guy out somewhere is homophobic. I don’t care if he was nervous or it was a joke or you show me a picture of him holding hands with a guy once. It. Was. Homophobic.

If you excuse people’s comments as not serious or just jokes instead of actually calling people out just because you like them as singers, you are being homophobic too. Listen to actual LGBTQ+ people who are telling you this was wrong of him to say instead of taking it as just a part of his personality or his culture because you don’t want ‘drama’. There are real fans who must feel fucking heartbroken at someone they love using threatening language about LGBTQ+ people. It’s not people overreacting. It’s people hearing an idol say something that we hear time and time again out of the mouths of homphobes, and we have every right in the world to be upset and call him out.

If you shrug it off or actively defend him, you don’t support LGBTQ+ people and you can unfollow me right now, and take your shitty attitude and your love of fanfic with you. 

I’ve always felt like white people were so super obsessed with banning abortion because they felt like they were going extinct. Which is ridiculous on its own but also like what a strange thing to be expressly aware of your status and impermanence as an animal while pretending you will individually live forever and are more civilized than anyone else.

I mean it starts to make sense if you hear them talk about preserving the ‘American Way’ which really isn’t anything at all and just seems like their catchall term for making sure they exist in the future lol.

Because on a ‘civilized’ note it makes no sense to have to manage your race like an endangered animal breeding program. There are plenty of you.

“I came as soon as i heard.” Tony said, setting the bags down. “I also brought fish and chips.”

“I gave you that key for emergencies.” Patsy frowned. “Heard what?”

“Patience Mount dramatically meeting a potential romantic interest in the rain? It’s the definition of an emergency.” Tony grinned. “I demand details.”

Because you know what the world needs? Melarue as an Inquisition companion. @scurvgirl and I were fiddling around with the idea of former Nameless Leader Melarue waking up in DA;I times and coming to the aid of one Inquisitor Kassaran Adaar. So the Companion Mel AU is a thing now. You’re all welcome.
