Trump planning a new travel ban to address legal concerns, but it’s likely still a Muslim ban

  • According to the WSJ, Trump is planning a replacement executive order that’s intended to be court-proof — and could be ready by Tuesday.
  • The WSJ obtained a State Department memo on a draft of the revised order. The latest version would place a few qualifiers on the ban to make it more legally viable. 
  • Reportedly, it will not apply to green card holders from the target countries: Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
  • It’s also possible the new executive order will drop the indefinite ban on Syrian refugees, a State Department source told the Wall Street Journal. Two White House representatives, however, denied that claim.
  • The memo reportedly suggests the new order wouldn’t prioritize Christian refugees as the old one did. Read more (2/19/17 5:31 PM)

Reince Priebus blasts media for using unnamed sources, then uses unnamed sources

  • White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus really hates when the media doesn’t name its sources. He also wants you to know that all those stories with unnamed sources aren’t true, because someone whose name he can’t disclose told him so.
  • “I think that the media should stop with this unnamed source stuff,” Priebus said on CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday talking about the NY Times’ Russia report.
  • Late, in a separate appearance on Fox News Sunday, Priebus pushed back against those allegations, citing his own unnamed "top level” intelligence officials. Read more (2/19/17 1 PM)

You know Daryl’s lie was selfless because just a few hours ago he was telling Morgan how Carol would be ready to fight and you could tell that he WANTED it but the moment he saw her fall apart he prioritized her happiness and health and safety over literally everyone else’s. He cares more about Carol than he does about winning the war 🤗

Hi! Just wanted to pop by and say your posts are amazing! Filled with creativity and clearly tons of effort and time was put in, which I really appreciate! I'm about to start a rather heavy semester with rather challenging subjects for me, how do you suggest I cope and time manage?

hello and thank you so much! as far as coping and time managing, here are some tips for you: 

  • keep a planner or journal and make it a habit to use and check it
    • even if you need to hang a calendar on the wall, use it
    • this helps with keeping up with quiz/exams dates 
  • study early and study smart
    • studying long =/= studying smart 
    • spread out your studying rather than cramming 
  • learn to prioritize
    • make sure you’re putting most of your efforts towards the most impactful assignments
    • minimize stress as much as you can 
  • eat as healthy as possible and exercise/stretch 
    • keep your body good to go 
    • if you’re eating junk food while spending most of your time sitting or lying down, your body and brain are going to get slower and slower
    • your immune system will also cry
  • change your study places
    • changes in scenery are good for focusing 
  • recharge once in awhile 
    • you will get burnt out
    • but if you recharge, it will happen less 

good luck! 

  • Suwon: If I can't choose what's best for this country, there's no point in being on the throne.
  • Minsu: Even if you have to put that person through misery again...?
  • Suwon: A country with a king who prioritizes just one single person will crumble.

no one ever tells you how hard it really is becoming an adult. Sure you have more responsibilities and bills or whatever, but the mental existential crisis that is every moment of becoming an adult is, at times, overwhelmingly maddening and scary. Constantly asking yourself if you’re going in the right direction, making the correct choices, prioritizing the right things, etc. it’s really really tough. As you grow you become stronger, but the situations also get tougher and you can feel like progress is slow. I know someday I’ll find a strong sense of self but it’s emotionally taxing figuring out who you are, why you’re in this world, and what you’re going to do with your time here. I’m sure I overthink things more than most which makes it tough, but I’m also sure everyone can relate. No one really has anything figured out but social media makes it sooooo tough because you think everyone has their shit together and you’re the only one that doesn’t. But that’s not reality. Sigh

Good Weekend

Beautiful weather, wore the kids out with a lot of playtime, made some yummy food, got a lot of stuff cleaned, and feeling positive about myself. There’s still a bunch on my to-do list, but it’ll get done, and I’m going to try and keep ahead of stuff the rest of this week in the hopes of trying to prioritize some time for long overdue self-care in my free time next weekend. We’ll see what happens. Either way, it’s time for a bath and then bed, Monday will be coming back around soon enough.

Having Virgo in the 3rd house, I tend to do most of my thinking & get epiphanies while driving or in the midst of travelling, like staring out the window of a car window just suddenly enlightens something inside me, filling me with so many miraculous ideas, my mind suddenly starts making sense of things that didn’t make sense prior (3rd house rules cars, transportation). Though, I can only concentrate and reach this epiphanies in a quiet environment (gemini in the 12th house), and can think, process, write, and prioritize things much better when I’m in solitude, due to being easily overwhelmed by outside influences.

I know its not my place to say but I kinda hate that you prioritize lavendereyes over everything else. I've been waiting for days for a response but I dont want to be annoying by asking

So you do this instead? How is this better? Please, just come to me privately with matters like these. I’m not a horrible person, I don’t mind a little prodding. If you’re not happy with the way I’m handling my stuff, then talk to me or unfollow me. :c And it’s a little rude to bring up someone else like that.

i’m going to do a new thing where i prioritize people who consistently make me happy and who i admire as people instead of sucking up to people i think are Cool and whom i am anxious about disliking me 

anonymous asked:

so you gonna ignore the fact that sakura just sat there and watched naruto get his ass kicked. even if hinata was selfish AF she still attempted to do something. unlike sakura who sat there looking like a wet bitch

sakura understands naruto, respects his wishes, and she believes in him. that’s why lol

not to mention, sakura was healing the entire village through katsuyu. she can’t prioritize one of her friends over the life of thousands.

also, are you forgetting this?

finally, to get it through your thick skull, i’m going to use an example from another series.

this is what actual love and respect is:

this should speak volumes.

fuck outta here. you can’t defend your trash bitch because she is shit. just give up already and start admiring the true queen

hey guys - i’m sure it’s kind of obvious that things are a bit off on BB right now. i’m having to prioritize my own health and recovery at the moment and it’s thrown things off a bit. we’re still here and things will pick up again soon. i’m working to train a team member to take over admin work for me, but it will take some time because of my schedule being so packed right now. in the meantime, i’ll be answering questions myself to the best of my ability. i know this isn’t the same as the entire consult team helping, but i’d rather do this than leave you guys without answers for so long. thank you for your understanding!

(Based on a true story where I have to painstakingly wake up at 6 to attend an 8 am lecture, but my friend who does a completely different course attends the same lecture just to visit his bae)
