Lmao I once had an idea there will be a kiss on Episode 7

Tbh, I had a hunch Viktor and Yuuri will kiss on episode 7 based on a constantly related anime, No.6; which the two lead male characters (Nezumi Shion) kiss on episode 7

which is a laughable thought, I wrote a joke text on facebook about that. Since then, I had been anticipating ep 7 for a kiss. What a baseless thought, tho

In reality, this season its not only Viktuuri

5 x 7?!


Bonus : Never forget

Seen lots of people (coughgenwunnerscough) say that they think the newer pokemon ‘feel’ different because of their more cute and rounded eye shapes compared to the originals, so I thought I would actually find out what the difference was between generations. ‘Pointy’ and ‘round’ categories were pretty objective but ‘hybrid’ was a more subjective for some cases.

By percentage Gen1 has the most pointy eyes and second-fewest rounded eyes… so I guess in the strict sense they are right? However Gen2 immediately afterwards has the most rounded eyes and near the greatest disparity between major eye types, and I never hear anyone complain about this generation (I personally barely distinguish gen1 and gen2 from each other), so I’m not sure this justification really stands up. There does not appear to be a clear trend for eyes becoming more round and cute as time goes on - generations 3, 4, and 5 are all essentially the same spread and are similar enough to gen1 that they can be considered unchanged throughout, all being within a 5% range of each other.

However, gen7 has shown a rapid increase in hybrid eye shapes and the lowest number of ‘pointy’ and ‘round’ eyes of any generation. Unlike gen1 where 85% of all pokemon are suggested to be either aggressive or cute by their eye shape, gen7 is more nuanced with far more pokemon falling somewhere in between.

How to Find the Right Relationship

1. Know yourself – what you want, and do not want.

2. Have good boundaries – know what it is healthy, and what crosses that line.

3. Know your value, and require respect.

4. Get out there and meet a wide range of people.

5. Give people a reasonable chance.

6. Don’t put people into a box; be open to being surprised.

7. Be persistent in your search for true love.

DISCLAIMER: this is gonna be a long post, I apologise in advance.

So yesterday this post came up on my fb timeline, written by someone who’s business is connecting grooms to riders in need. I thought I could move past it without saying something but I can’t.

I am a groom. I love my job. I also love my horses. I would give anything for them, they are my life. In my current job, when I was full time, I started work at 8am. We stopped for tea at 11am, lunch at 1pm and then we did evening yard chores at 3pm till finishing time which ranges from 5-6pm. I got a day and a half off work each week, getting paid more than minimum wage per hour and 6 weeks paid holidays. I was “on the books” aka I paid taxes on my wages, I was a “legal” worker. I’ve been in this job for 2 years and 2 months and I’m very happy.

In my very first job as a groom I was 18 - I had no idea really what to expect. My days started at 7:30am. I was allowed 10 minutes for breakfast once the 16 horses were all hayed, fed and mucked out by me. Then it was straight back to work till 6? 7? 8? 9? In the evening - I never knew when I’d finish up, it depended entirely on the whim of my rider. If he decided that he wanted to ride a horse at half 7 I had to be there to groom them, tack up, leg my rider up, put up jumps and then when he was finished and gone home I’d untack, wash off and feed everyone their dinner and then clean all the tack for the next morning before I could go inside for my own dinner. I was supposed to get 1 day off a week but that very rarely happened. If I wanted to take 2/3 days off to go home I’d have to work ¾ weeks in a row to “earn” those days off. Even then I would be bombarded with texts of “where is this” and “what does this one get fed” while I was away from work.

On show days I would get up at 3am and if I was very lucky I would be in bed by 11pm. But only if I worked my ass off and went without food for the entire day.

I was paid €200 a week regardless of how many hours I had worked.

I lasted 6 months in that job. I came away with depression and anxiety that I still suffer from. “But why didn’t you just leave?! How could anyone work in those conditions?! It’s not fair!” Because people like the person who wrote that fb post were telling me it was “normal”. You aren’t a “proper” groom if you complain, if you take days off, if you’re “watching the clock”. What fucking bullshit.

Are you telling me young grooms getting into the profession should be “happy” and “feel privileged” to work with these amazing animals when they’re getting no sleep, no free time to themselves, no holidays, terrible pay? “But they’re getting accommodation included!” Yeah I had accommodation included too - it had no heating, was overrun with mice and I had one plug in radiator to keep myself warm. But oh yes that definitely made up for my lack of wages.

So for anyone deciding whether or not they want to be a groom I have this advice for you.

Being a groom is like having any other job. You have the right to know your working hours, you have the right to days off and you have the goddamn right to AT LEAST minimum wage per hour. You are a human being, you are not a robot. It is not normal to be treated like dirt, it is not ok for you to feel abused or unappreciated, you are not something that can just be thrown away. Stand up for yourself. If your job isn’t up to scratch then leave, get the hell outta there because there are jobs out there like my current one where you will be a valued member of a team and you will still be able to live your life.

Horses are my everything - without them I don’t know who’d I’d be. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy my days off when I get to relax and switch off. That doesn’t make me any less of a groom, it means I’m looking after both my physical and mental health. You can still be a great groom and be paid proper wages, you can still be a great groom and take days off, and you most definitely can be a great groom and know your working hours.

Do you have any selfies with your siblings? I dunno, just curious. If not, I love your art!! You're amazing!! Thank you for gracing us with your amazing talent!!!!

recent ones? not with all of them, which honestly is a gross oversight on my part and means i should take some this summer considering how much i blog about them. this is me and my biological bro tho, he’s younger than me (u might know him from Great Hits such as the remote & alien hunting post):

my bio bro and sis (who is also younger than me but the closest to my age, she normally comes to help me out with shows):

all three of my younger brothers (who range 5-6 yrs younger than me and are all way taller than i am):

posted w/permission of course. i can’t find any recent photos w/my youngest sister but she’s notoriously camera-avoidant (tho it’s her bday tomorrow so maybe she’ll be down 2 take some then). technically she and my other two brothers are my first cousins but we all grew up in the same household w/the same four parents and still live that way to this day, so i’ve never had a cousin-esque relationship with any of them. that’s my sibs! all six of ‘em!! and they help me pack all my orders and make post office runs with me and sometimes they say jarring stuff that ends up in my #sib blogging tag :|;;

Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923)
“Seville, the Dance” (1915)
Oil on canvas
Located in the Hispanic Society of America, New York City, New York, United States

This painting is part of Sorolla’s “The Vision of Spain” series. Sorolla was commissioned to create a series of oil paintings on life in Spain. He would go on to make a total of 14 magnificent murals, installed to this day in the Hispanic Society of America building in Manhattan. They range from 3.5 to 4 meters (12-14’) in height, and total over 69 meters (227’) in length.

The Legend of Zelda: BoTW Things You Did Not Know!

1. Wearing Incomplete Armor sets while opening Treasure Chests will increase the chances of getting the next piece of the Armor: Fierce Deity, Sky Tunic, Wind Tunic.


2. Wearing a complete Armor set while opening Treasure Chest increases the chances of getting the first piece of Armor from the Amiibo – rarely ever the Sword.

2. Blupees can be hit by arrows, bombs, or weapons the maximum number of 3x before disappearing, they are more likely to drop Purple Rupees.

3. The BEST weapon to hit a Bluepee all three times is with the Fishing Harpoon Spear found in Lurelin Village. Never misses! Once on target, press (A) three times.

4. Open Amiibo Chests at Lurelin Village to have 360 degrees of free range.

5. The Treasure Chest mini game is already set according to which chest you choose. Just don’t break the chain and continue playing for 100 Rupees.

  • The game already prearranges the Gold 300 Rupees even if you save or not. For eXample: load the game 300 rupee is in the far left and re-arranges the 300 to be in set chest for the next draw. Just have to keep going or else you break the arrangement.

6. Monster Extract gives Elixir recipes a 30:00 timer.

7. The Hylian Shield is actually sold in the Secret Shop, cost 3,000 Rupees. Alternatively, you could get the Zelda BoTW Amiibo and scan for it.

The Star-Democrat, Easton, Maryland, January 5, 1951

In 2000 we shall be able to fly around the world in a day.

Google says: The average commercial jet liner travels about 550 mph, and the Earth is around 26,000 miles in circumference. If a commercial plane could make the trip without refueling, it would take over 47 hours. A large commercial jetliner has a range of about 5,000 miles, so it would need to land and refuel several times.

Coffee (Trimberly w/wingman Zack)

Zack knew something was up after Rita’s defeat. Kimberly and Trini had spent quite a bit of time together during training already, but Zack assumed it was because they were the ladies of the group. They must’ve had their own problems that only other girls could relate to, which is what Zack thought they talked about. Turns out, he was completely wrong. Since Rita was smacked into space, Trini and Kimberly had nearly stopped interacting altogether, even during training.

He saw the looks Trini gave Kimberly when she thought no one was looking. Ever since that night around the campfire, he knew that she was crushing hard. He also saw the way that Kimberly interacted with Trini. It was different than the guys, but most importantly, it was different than most other girls. She was always concerned about Trini and never hesitated to rush to her side, even during training. Not to mention the not-so-subtle touches during sparring. I suppose it’s time to step in.


“Hey, Kimberly,” Zack greeted the pink ranger. They took the same path to the ship, so he managed to catch her then. It was good since they would be alone during that time.

Kimberly turned to the black ranger jogging towards her. “Hey, Zack.”

“Ready for training?” he asked casually.

Kimberly shrugged. “I guess. We haven’t been taking anything too hard since Zordon said we would be safe for a little while longer.”

Zack smiled. “Come on now Princess, you can’t be bored already!”

She laughed and playfully shoved Zack off the path. “Shut up! If you tell Zordon or Alpha any of that, they’ll amp up the difficulty to nearly impossible.”

“True, true.”

They walked in amiable silence for a bit. Zack was trying to find the words for his plan. “Hey, so do you want to hang out tomorrow?”

Kimberly raised her eyebrow at him. “Um, sure? Why?”

Zack blushed. “I need some help with school. You’re a smart person and I understand you when you talk, so I was hoping you could help me catch up.” He rubbed the back of his head. He wasn’t exactly lying. He did need help, but he definitely wasn’t planning on making one of the rangers go out of their way to help him.

“Oh, yeah! Sure! I can do that. We could just meet after school. Where do you think we should go?”

“How’s the coffee shop by the school? It’s one of the only cafes not destroyed by Goldar.”

“Good idea. We could just meet at my car and I’ll take you after school.”

Zack gave a thumbs up. After that, they reached the ravine leading to the pit. Neither of them hesitated as they dropped off the edge towards the water at the bottom.

Alright. Halfway there.


Zack was sparring with Trini again that day. The others had left already, but Zack and Trini always stayed a bit later to practice more. Once again, Trini brought Zack down without breaking a sweat.

They laid on the ground of the Pit laughing. “I may be little, but I’m feisty!” Trini rolled onto her stomach to rest after the day.

Zack couldn’t agree more. As of yet, no one had beaten Trini one on one. Zack got close since he practiced so much with her, but in the end, she always took him down. 

“Damn! Not even close!”

“And you’re not gunna get close!”

The two friends just teased each other on the ground for a bit, neither really wanting to walk home just yet.

When they finally decided that it was time to head back, Zack popped the question. “Hey, I was wondering if you could help me tomorrow. I need to catch up on all the class that I missed.”

Trini immediately twisted her body to face Zack. Her face was full of suspicion. “You don’t need help. I’ve seen your grades. You’re caught up already.”

Tch. Should’ve expected that. “I know my grades are looking okay, but I really have no idea what’s going on. The school just kind of handed me some make-up work and let me off the hook since they know about my mom. No one really taught me anything. I’m just filling out random numbers and letters at this point.”

Trini nodded. “Alright. I’ll help you, but you’ll have to do something for me.”

Zack agreed instantly.

“I need you to stop lying. Why are we meeting tomorrow? I’ve seen you up at that train car remember? You had textbooks out all the time, so you’re not filling out random numbers and letters.”

Agh. WHY. “Ummmmm, I’m setting you up on a blind date.” Zack definitely didn’t want to risk lying again. He would just have to face the wrath of Trini if he did.

“… No.”

“Please?”

“No.”

“I’ll buy you donuts.”

“… Okay, 30 minutes.”

Zack pumped his fist into the air. “Yes!”

“Little shit.”

Got the other half.


The next day, Zack texted Trini about where and when to meet him. The rangers went through school like any other day. The day flew by. Before Zack knew it, he was standing by Kimberly’s car, waiting for her to unlock it.

They left for the coffee shop as fast as they could to avoid the school parking lot traffic. When they got there, Zack chose a nice small table near the center of the cafe. It was nicely lit, but more importantly, it only fit 2 people.

Zack pulled out his books and papers as Kimberly ordered her drink. Zack didn’t want to spend anymore unnecessary money, so he passed. Kimberly sat down across from him, and pulled out some of her own stuff, telling Zack that they would just work together for the time being until she saw what he was struggling with.

She’d be a good tutor.

The cafe door’s bell rang about 5 minutes into working through interpreting One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest Part 1. Zack could practically feel the murderous intent coming off of Trini before he even saw her. Apparently Kimberly must’ve felt it too since she turned around.

Her face immediately lit up, which in turn made Trini ease back the anger a bit. Zack stared down at his book, not wanting to look up at all. Trini approached the small table plastering a smile on.

Zack smirked as he finally pulled his head up. She is so going to kill me later.

“Hey, Crazy Girl!”

“Zack.”

“Trini! What are you doing here?” Kimberly was smiling brightly.

“This is the only cafe that wasn’t destroyed by Goldar.”

The three of them giggled a little at that. “Well, thanks, Princess. I should probably head home to get my mom her medicine.”

Trini’s anger significantly died with that comment. Kimberly waved at him, not taking her eyes off of Trini. “See you, Zack. You wanna sit, Trini?” she wasted no time in asking. 

As Zack walked past Trini, he quietly slipped a couple bills into her hand. He whispered low enough for only her to here. “For the donuts. Why don’t you share with Princess over there?”

“Cheeky bastard,” she whispered back, smiling.

Zack fled the cafe as fast he could after that. Welp, that oughta do something.


Trini sat with Kim after Zack left. She felt her stomach flutter a bit. Why is her hair so perfect? There is no way she cut that herself.

The two chatted for a bit, laughing and gossiping like they were schoolgirls. “Wait here.”

Trini got up and went to the counter. She ordered some donuts using the money Zack just gave her. When they gave her the donuts, she made sure to grab two forks and a knife. Before she returned to the table, she cut the donuts up into pieces so that they could share like they did that day before Rita came.

When she got back to the table, Kimberly was looking up at her fondly, probably remembering the same thing Trini did.

Before Trini could take a seat, she was pulled down by the collar of her shirt. She felt lips press against hers. Cherry

When the lips left, she tried to chase after them, but a finger was put up to her mouth. “I am so sorry.” Trini’s heart sank. “I’ve just been wanting to do that for a really long time, so I just need a moment to revel in the fact that I managed to do it before you scream at me.”

Trini smiled, giving Kimberly the moment she asked for. “Okay, you can yell now,” Kimberly winced.

Instead, Trini pushed forward and roughly shoved her mouth past the finger in her way. She took in Kim’s scent as she tasted cherry once again. Kimberly yelped as she nearly fell backwards out of her chair.

Suddenly, there was the sound of someone clearing their throat by the table. Trini looked up glaring at whoever decided to interrupt her long awaited kisses. Zack stood there smirking at the two girls practically sitting on each other.

“I forgot my book.” He reached under the chair and picked it up. Kimberly was blushing furiously, and tried to hide it by putting her face in the crook of Trini’s neck. Her shoulders were shaking with happy laughter. “Bye,” Zack bemusedly called as he left the cafe once again.

Kimberly whispered into Trini’s neck. “Cheeky bastard.”

The two of them laughed before another throat was cleared. Trini didn’t know where it came from, but she decided that it was best to tone down the PDA. She sat down in her seat, and ate the donuts with Kimberly. This time though, their hands were linked on the table.


Zack smiled knowingly at Kimberly the next day when she walked into school wearing a yellow beanie that looked an awful lot like Trini’s. 

Thank god. He thought right before his face was shoved into a locker by none other than Trini, who was blushing at the fact that Zack noticed the beanie. 

Zack laughed, shaking it off, and Trini just crossed her arms, turning her head away from him. “Thank you.”

Zack nodded, and they never mentioned it again.


Everyday that they didn’t have training, Kimberly would meet with Trini by her car after school and they’d head to the coffee shop, hands never parting. Of course, the rest of the boys noticed quickly that they were dating and congratulated them during training.

At the cafe, the girls would do what they do. Sometimes they would eat and do their work together in silence, just enjoying each others company. Sometimes they would talk about anything and everything, laughing and crying at the conversations.

Damn, I got lucky. Kimberly thought one day as she was watching Trini talk. She was rambling about this band that was coming to town to give a free concert as a sort of donation thing since the Goldar incident was still being resolved. 

Kimberly smiled inwardly, feeling the butterflies that she felt everytime she looked at the beauty before her. She didn’t think the butterflies would ever leave and she was absolutely okay with that.

She sipped at her drink. DAMN, I GOT LUCKY.

Sandbox Update Stream Highlights

General

  • Hotfix 2.5.0.2 will hit next week (February 14th)
  • “Sandbox” is the players’ extension of the game and what the put their hands on such as grenade, melee, guns, vehicles, etc
  • It is acknowledged that Shotguns are the most dominant gun in the crucible across all subclasses (Sidearms being the least as far as Special Weapons go)
  • Pulse Rifles and Hand Cannons are the most dominant Primary weapons
  • The goal  of the update is not to necessarily nerf the Pulse Rifle or Hand Cannon but to bring Scout Rifles (and maybe Auto Rifles?) to bring them up a little more to give more incentive to use them

Weapon Balancing

  • Sidearms receive no changes!

Shotgun

  • Aim assist is completely turned off for shotguns when firing from the hip
  • Shotgun’s accuracy in-air has been reduced!
  • Precision hits on shotguns have been removed but receive a 20% damage buff for PvE for the offset. Chaperone is unaffected by this change and Universal Remote gets precision when ADS. Lord of Wolves not mentioned!
  • Rangefinder has been tweaked for Shotguns in that it takes more time to ADS

Pulse Rifles

  • High RoF Pulse Rifles (Clever Dragon, Grasp of Malok) pulses have been reduced 7.7%

  • Fall off damage for Hand Cannons is much closer; maxing out  33% of what your damage could be at longest range

Special Ammo

  • Players will lose all special ammo when they die with the exception of sidearms
  • Special Ammo appears every 60 seconds now; and special ammo crate radius for passive pickup decreased from 100m to 75m.

    • Juggernaut becomes disabled in air after a short amount of time, and can not be activated in mid-air


Disclaimer: THESE ARE NOT ALL THE CHANGES COMING! There will be a little more that was not discussed
