quotes about not knowing what to do

“When Best Ayiorwoth was just 19, she started a microcredit business in northern Uganda that would go on to help hundreds of women and young girls. GIPOMO provides micro-loans to women with small businesses so that they can keep their children, especially girls, in school. Ayiorwoth has personal experience of how families often only choose to send boys to school when they can’t afford to send all their children.

In 2013 she won first place and $25,000 in the Anzisha Prize.

"Winning the Anzisha Prize helped broaden my organisation’s structure. It also helped advertise what we do. For example, it became the focus of the Ugandan media and that helped people know about it. It also created a number of networking opportunities so I’m able to get different kinds of help from different people, from different departments.”

Ayiorwoth’s goal is to expand GIPOMO across Uganda and eventually into other African countries.“ 👑💪👏 #luvyourmane #celebrateblackexcellence #africanexcellence #blackhistorymonth

what do you suppose Luke and Han's grindr profiles are like/

Luke would have something dealing with how he’s becoming a pilot and you know your average looking for people to hang with and so on on probably would say Twink guy looking for friends or something maybe a few inspirational quotes

While Han no doubt has something bragging about the millennium falcon like most of his description is just him bragging about it his profile picture is literally him standing next to it and talking about his dog chewie

(his would also probably say built guy looking for twink lmAO)

I hope this new series finally has an gay character, not a lesbian/ bisexual character to titillate male fans like they do in comics but a character who happens to be gay. I don't think they could have don't it 30 ago without making them walking cliches like in "Heart of Glory" with Klingons or anything to do with Ferengi in TNG, these very rigid cultural traits, stereotypes. Plus they were flamboyant about heterosexuality, so I can only imagine what they'd've done with queer characters.

well we’ll just have to see, the fact that it’ll be online only (if i remember correctly? but don’t quote me on that) might make a difference, or not, who knows.  i just hope they keep the star trek philosophy going, which would include what you were getting at 

Merle: [praying] I didn’t behave, I know. I know I’m being punished. I know. I- Oh, I deserve it. I deserve it. I’ve been bad. Help me now. Show me the way. Go on, tell me what to do. Tell me. Tell me. God!That’s okay. Never you mind, silly Christ boy. I ain’t begged you before. I ain’t gonna start begging now. I ain’t gonna beg you now! Don’t you worry about me begging you ever! I’ll never beg you! I ain’t gonna beg you! I never begged you before.

// Nah, you know what?

Just been listening to Ray speaking about existence. He linked an incredible quote from Arin Hanson - right here - and I’ve realised, why should I care so much?

It makes me happy to be here. Sure there’s a lotta people here who hate my guts (all for pretty stupid reasons tbh lmAO), but why should I let the fact they refuse to talk to me about it stop me doing what I love?

I might take a little break, but I don’t think I’m done here just yet. Why should I let the people who despise me command how my life goes? Once more I refer to Arin’s quote:

You can’t open up the story of my life and just go to Page 738 and think you know me.

Of course, no one plans to ever listen to someone who they think is rude or unkind, so trying to tell them is useless (this is tumblr we’re talking about), but y’know, sucks to be them. I’m not done yet.

I just started up school again after 8 years, and I'm about 6 classes in and I'm already frustrated. My book chapters are really long and take hours to just outline, and in class my teacher is so fast at going through slides that I can never get enough in my notes. I'm worried that I'm going to miss important things and fail my midterm when it comes up. She doesn't give us print outs of slides or put them online at all. I don't know what to do. I can't ask her to slow down just for me. Ideas?

Hello student fighter!

❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁

Let me tell you first how much I admire you for starting up school again after 8 years! This is something that only people with great determination,belief and strength in their soul can do! This is something that 99% of people wouldn’t do, because they are not “fighters”, they are afraid of society’s opinion, they don’t believe in theirselves! 

When I was younger I -was- afraid of genius people. Now that I am older (and hopefully wiser!) I -am- afraid of hard working people with great self-belief and determination, and that’s you! 

What should I say? I am a fan of yours!

❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁

Let me declare that the vast majority of your classmates has the same problem! They are just afraid to express it! That is always happening with students! 

You want to  be an excellent student. In order to achieve that you have to overpass and destroy some obstacles. The method of this teacher is an obstacle right now! So you should take action about that!

❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁

I can’t think of anything else efficient than talking to your teacher. About 10-15 minutes before class find her and express her your thoughts and your problems. At first tell her that a slower rythm helps you develop critical thinking , so you can understand the informations and then write them in your own words and as result you can revise them easier! Secondly express her that it’s sure that you can’t retain 100% of what she said and that  there is a great probability of forgetting some of the informations and eventually missing some main points, so it would be a life-saver if she could upload some lecture notes or course material! 

❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁

The key is to be confident and honest with your teacher! I am sure she will change her method. Also it’s important to find her before classes so right after your discussion she will hopefully follow your indications.

❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁ ❁

Hope I helped you! Send me how this ended up.

Good Luck!!

It’s great. We know each other quite well. We’re really good friends so that helps because we’re always in a safe environment [and free] to be able to talk about it and discuss where we’re coming from, a character’s point of view or what we think about the scene.

Sometimes you find when you’re doing a love scene with someone or chemistry with anyone, you don’t want to talk about it or it can be surprisingly embarrassing. It is our work and it’s not in any way, when you do it, a sexy experience. It’s very technical. But the difference is when it’s safe and open and you can try experimenting with different ways to interpret it and I think that’s what’s so great with Eliza is we both have an understanding and appreciation of that.

Do you ever just get that feeling where you don’t want to talk to anybody? You don’t want to smile & you don’t want to fake being happy but at the same time you don’t know exactly what’s wrong either, there isn’t a way to explain it to someone who doesn’t already understand. If you could want anything in the world it would be to be alone, people have stopped being comforting, & being alone never was. At least when you’re alone no one constantly asks you what’s wrong & there isn’t anyone who won’t take “I don’t know” for an answer. You feel the way you do just because. You hope the feeling will pass soon & that you will be able to be yourself again, but until then all you can do is wait.

things that never end well- a guy starting a conversation with “you know, I’m a GUY who KNITS and”

so i’m in the break room knitting and he comes up and starts explaining what I’m doing wrong. and he is literally wrong about everything

“you shouldn’t use two circular needles- you can knit a tube with one, and they look like different sizes” yeah that’s because I’m knitting a shawl on a circular needle and i need to change needle sizes for the lace repeats “

"you should watch out and be sure not to wrap your yarn around your finger like that, it’ll catch and mess with your tension” just because you’re too much of a scrub to knit continental doesn’t mean we all are

“are those beads? why don’t you just put them on once you’re done so you can see how it looks without them” what the fuck

like I got a degree in knitting. I got this, buddy

  • Hungary (about a broken coffee pot):So. Who broke it?
  • Germany:I did. I broke it.
  • Hungary:No. No, you didn't. Prussia?
  • Prussia:Don't look at me. Look at Austria.
  • Austria:What? I didn't break it!
  • Prussia:Huh. That's weird. How did you know it was broken?
  • Austria:Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken!
  • Prussia:Suspicious.
  • Austria:No it's not!
  • Netherlands:If it matters, probably not...Belgium was the last to use it.
  • Belgium:Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
  • Netherlands:Oh really? Then what were you doing by the coffee earlier?
  • Belgium:I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles! Everyone knows that!
  • Germany:Alright, let's not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it.
  • Hungary:No. Who broke it?
  • Denmark (whispering):Norway's been awfully quiet...
  • Norway:Really!?
  • Denmark:Yeah, really!
  • ...
  • Hungary:I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict ten minutes from now, they'll be at each other's throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.
There are some things about myself I can’t explain to anyone. There are some things I don’t understand at all. I can’t tell what I think about things or what I’m after. I don’t know what my strengths are or what I’m supposed to do about them. But if I start thinking about these things in too much detail the whole thing gets scary.
—  Haruki Murakami, A Slow Boat to China

Context; Just before the rogue kicked open a door to create the element of surprise, an enemy came out from the other side of the door and grappled the rogue, threatening them with a knife to their eye.

Enemy: “That old dragon is using you! You don’t know what you’re doing- not a step closer, or I’ll kill your friend, I’ll do it!!”

Rogue: “You picked the wrong guy to hold up, none of these people care about me.”

Everyone at The Table: *assorted laughter and “awww"s*

i also do weight training 3 times per week, and am looking to do dance (salsa, merengue, rumba) or boxing to add a little bit more cardio throughout the week!

everyone is doing amazing! let us all motivate each other to allow us to keep up our amazing work!! ❤️❤️

“How would you explain it?” she asks me, sitting cross legged on my rumpled white bedspread, and I know she’s talking about me and him again. I think for a minute, and it comes to me.

“He was the night sky and I was a star.”

“What do you mean?” she questions, reaching out for my hand.

I hesitate, and then look down and explain.

“What I mean, my love, is that once he was gone, there was no reason for me to shine anymore.”

And like every time, my tears splash down onto the sheets.
