Summary: As a high-end fashion designer you’re living an extensively comfortable life. When your relationship of six years ends, you’re not too happy to see your newly-ex on the arm of another woman directly after; which is part of the reason you don’t mind running in to two men, who seem to have some exciting plans with you. As a woman who always gets what she wants, you immediately recognise men who are used to that exact same thing, and you’re more than happy to be the one to put them in their place.

So today has been fun so far 😁

- Met and talked to several Walking Dead fans in various elevator rides

- A woman showed us a tattoo she had on her wrist that Melissa McBride wrote for her and she said she’s met her so many times Melissa actually recognises her and her friends (she’s also getting a photo with Steven too)

- Went to a mall? Idk it was cool

- Downtown Atlanta is awesome but the trek back from Walgreens with food and drink wasn’t lmao

- ^ A really nice local guy took us to Walgreens because we were lost 😂

Next on the agenda is to go to the Melissa Hutchison (Clementine from TWDG) panel 🙌🏼

What’s So Bad About OCD?

The illness itself

OCD is a clinically recognised disorder. It is debilitating and paralysing. People with OCD experience intensely negative, repetitive and intrusive thoughts, combined with a chronic feeling of doubt or danger (obsessions). In order to quell the thought or quieten the anxiety, they will often repeat an action, again and again (compulsions).


One of the greatest challenges that people with OCD face is the need to fight both the all pervasive stigma of mental health disorders and the widely held belief that OCD is a mild or even “quirky” problem that is nothing more than hand washing. Many people now use the term “a bit OCD” without understanding the onerous nature of the disorder in its severe form.

Getting Help

There is an average delay of 12 years between the onset of OCD and treatment being received. There are many reasons why people with OCD delay seeking help. These include a fear that they will be committed to a secure institution, a fear of the stigma associated with mental health disorders, or a simple belief that no one can help them. This is 12 years of pointless misery and isolation brought about by a disorder that can be successfully managed.


OCD does not just affect the individual with the disorder but draws in their friends and families, colleagues and employers. OCD rituals can take a huge toll on family life and drive a wedge between parents and children, husbands and wives, who often feel unable to comprehend the pain a loved one is experiencing, let alone how best to support them.

AU where Dr Leonard McCoy gets called to a hospital three states over because a man has been in a serious accident and the only information on him was Leonard’s business card.

Leonard’s travels to see the man but doesn’t recognise him. Asks where he got the business card from.

Turns out Kirk is a hitman that didn’t want to whack Leonard so refused the job, and now they both have targets on their head.

Ways to improve low self-esteem

We all have times when we lack confidence and don’t feel good about ourselves. But when low self-esteem becomes a long-term problem, it can have a harmful effect on our mental health and our lives.

Self-esteem is the opinion we have of ourselves. When we have healthy self-esteem, we tend to feel positive about ourselves and about life in general. It makes us able to deal with life’s ups and downs better.

When our self-esteem is low, we tend to see ourselves and our life in a more negative and critical light. We also feel less able to take on the challenges life throws at us.

Here are some simple techniques that may help you feel better about yourself.

Recognise what you are good at

We are all good at something, whether it’s cooking, singing, doing puzzles or being a friend. We also tend to enjoy doing the things we are good at, which can help to boost your mood.

Build positive relationships

If you find certain people tend to bring you down, try to spend less time with them, or tell them how you feel about their words or actions. Seek out relationships with people who are positive and who appreciate you.

Be kind to yourself

Chris Williams, Professor of Psychosocial Psychiatry at the University of Glasgow advises: “Be compassionate to yourself. That means being gentle to yourself at times when you feel like being self-critical. Think what you’d say to encourage a friend in a similar situation. We often give far better advice to others than we do to ourselves.”

Learn to be assertive

Being assertive is about respecting other people’s opinions and needs, and expecting the same from them.

One trick is to look at other people who act assertively and copy what they do. “It’s not about pretending you’re someone you’re not,” says Professor Williams. “It’s picking up hints and tips from people you admire and letting the real you come out. There’s no point suddenly saying, ‘I’m going to be Chris Hoy’, but you might be able to get your bike out and do a bit of cycling for the first time in ages.”

Start saying ‘no’

People with low self-esteem often feel they have to say yes to other people, even when they don’t really want to. The risk is that you become overburdened, resentful, angry and depressed.

“For the most part, saying no doesn’t upset relationships,” says Professor Williams. “It can be helpful to take a scratched-record approach. Keep saying no in different ways until they get the message.”

Give yourself a challenge

We all feel nervous or afraid to do things at times. People with healthy self-esteem don’t let these feelings stop them from trying new things or taking on challenges.

Set yourself a goal, such as joining an exercise class or going to a social occasion. Achieving your goals will help to increase your self-esteem.


mysuperrider  asked:

You know if another Homeworld Gem were to show up, I'm betting its going to be one belonging to White Diamond. White is the Diamond with know next to nothing about and hasn't been mentioned by name yet, also none of the gems we've seen up to now have belonged to her. So I think if they introduce another HW Gem, it's going to one belonging to WD. Considering this Gem will be associated with a Diamond that has been hinted at, but not mentioned yet it's probably going to be treated as a big deal.

It could! But there are a lot of loose ends with the other Diamonds I’d like to see before then. For instance, Blue’s palanquin is still here, on Earth. Who was Lap is on Homeworld considering the Lapis shots in The Answer and the huge diamond on her outfit, and the fact that despite being so powerful, no one recognised her when she got back to Home world. It’s also worth asking, what happened to Blue?

I would also like a second look at Pink Diamond. I mean, whether or not she was Rose, we’d want to know what kind of leader she was and the actions she made, the relationships she had with those around her and of course the other Diamonds.

And Yellow, why is she so tired and overworked, seemingly left alone by her peers? That’s a big deal because overworked YD means she’s not being as efficient as she should. She’s clearly hurt and stressed out and Earth is a sore spot for her but she’s in charge of the Cluster project?

These are my personal questions for these characters that I’ve tried to answer in my posts about them. Having another character related to them would help triangulate the information we have on them, which is significant because it goes a long way to tell us what they and Homeworld are like.

But you do bring up a point about White’s seeming silence. To which I must say her influence will likely to have been revealed to be more subtle but prevalent all along. White is the “typical” conventional Diamond. That likely comes with its own pressures that would be great to explore in the show.

Should they have another character at this point though, given the loose ends we have, it would be introducing quantity over quantity unless the said character would help move our other open ends forward. Jasper and Bismuth, the Ruby Squad, corrupted gems, these are all just waiting for engagement.

And SU, in a very slice of life way, shows us that big, world-moving, things come out of individuals. Before we shift focus on completing the wider narrative, we can first flesh out the foundation the world stands on.
Benedict Cumberbatch: 'My parents wanted me to be a barrister or a doctor - but I pursued my first dream' -
He has the brains and British stiff upper lip down to a tee, but Benedict Cumberbatch is ready to tackle new territory as the latest Marvel superhero to grace the big screen. He tells G

“He’s just announced that his wife Sophie Hunter is expecting their second child, but Benedict Cumberbatch is giving little else away when it comes to his private life - except to say fatherhood has changed it for the better.

It adds - it never takes away,” says the 40-year-old actor, who became a parent for the first time last year, with the birth of his son, Christopher. “Lots of people, especially women, get told, ‘Oh you know, it’s going to really affect your career’, and it does, but for the better in most cases that I know.

"I am in a very privileged position in my career,” he recognises, “but I think everyone - even if they’re in a challenging time in their life - draws strength from their children. They’re inspirations rather than hindrances.”


Okay, so I highlighted the bits needing to be called out. Yes, he is giving so little that he keeps bringing it up constantly. The reason why he’s not giving away proper content is because he hasn’t got any source material. See how he talks about his parents? That’s real content right there…because it’s real.

As for the rest? He still keeps talking in concepts of having kids which just proves again that he has no clue about having kids or real life for that matter. Also, how good it is Mr C that your career has been so unaffected by having a kid, unlike many women you’re talking about - women every day are discriminated against at workplaces in the UK alone for being mums, but I’m glad it’s going well for you! Although I bet the pr wife’s life HAS changed for the better, surely she gets good money for her appearances and that must be plenty compared to the money she made from her non-existent jobs.

Chibiusa’s Special Cookies!

Ok so I’m normally not a recipe blog but i made these and they are really good so i thought i would Share. You might recognise something similar from the 90′s movie 美少女戦士セーラームーンSuperS セーラー9戦士集結!, or ‘Black Dream Hole’ in the dub. These take about 5-10 minutes to prep, an hour to chill, and 10 minutes or so to bake, depending on your oven. 

What you need:

  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 ½ sticks (¾ cup) softened butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • cookie cutters! (bonus points if they’re cute shapes)
  • parchment paper

What you do:

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cream brown sugar and softened butter together in a medium or large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on low-med speed. It should look like a tan fluffy substance, kind of like frosting in texture.
  3. Add the egg, vanilla, and almond extracts to the sugar-butter substance. Mix until well combined.
  4. Add half the flour mixture. Mix until well combined.
  5. Add the other half! Again, mix it up until well combined. It should be kind of loose and chunky– don’t worry, it’s not too dry. (Note: It’s important to add the flour in batches, because otherwise it’ll be too hard to mix)
  6. Split the dough in half, and wrap the halves in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or overnight. 
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 
  8. When the dough is well chilled, unwrap half of it (keep the other half in the fridge), and roll it out on a floured sheet of parchment paper– however thick you want, but I usually go for ¼th inch or half a centimetre. If it’s too sticky, chill it a bit longer.
  9. Cut into desired shapes (I like hearts and bunnies!) and bake for about 10 minutes! The edges should be light golden brown. Check on them regularly to be sure they don’t burn!
  10. Cool them for about 5 minutes and enjoy!

Remember, these are special cookies, and add 100x Courage and Power! The proof is in the taste, so don’t worry if they’re a little ugly.



Holy moly where do I even start with this one? I’m genuinely shaking right now :O I’m going to try and summarise my thoughts on a few things
1) Catherine Avery realising that if they were to punish Karev they would literally have to fire basically the entire surgical floor for their other, maybe less violent but still entirely illegal and immoral actions :’D Thank you for recognising this plot hole Catherine, we all saw it comin’
2) Leah’s return wasn’t as contrived as I thought it would be - the whole ‘second chances’ thing was actually pretty interesting and the cafeteria ‘Mean Girls’ scene was amazing, or at least I thought so #90sbaby XD
3) Can we just take a moment to appreciate how friggin cute the scene between Amelia and Robbie was? :’( It was such a shame they killed him! He would have made such a great recurring patient, or an adopted child of Omelia.
Okay, maybe not but seriously, after that scene, how could you not think she will be anything other than a perfect mum
4) Waffle Sundays - needs to be a thing…NOW If it gets the lady trifecta talking, along with their newly acquired surrogate brother Karev, then I’m totally up for this, besides Meredith has a waffle maker left over from their old house, remember?!
5) The couple in the clinic made me cry so much - I don’t usually get upset over patient stories but this particular patient really struck a chord with me :(
6) Robbie’s surgery :( Amelia got upset with Meredith in season 11 for not calling her to treat Derek when he was involved in the RTC, and she blamed herself thinking she could have saved him. Now she is faced with a situation whereby the victim of a similar RTC is on the table and even though she is there and she caught the brain bleed he still dies….of the exact same thing as Derek….coincidence? I think not.
And last but certainly not least…
7) Amelia opening up to Karev about unicorn baby
OH MY GOD. I don’t even know where to begin. Give that woman an Emmy now…like NOW. OMG help me I am still crying. It was incredible in every way. I’m so glad they are now addressing this and it actually makes so much sense: the negative pregnancy test was not just drama for drama’s sake - it’s going to open up so much more about her past (see all of her incredible interviews released TODAY) and I think it reinforces the Amelia we got to know love in Private Practice, whilst still acknowledging the personal growth she has experienced since.

These are just some of my, immediate, somewhat incoherent 3am thoughts. I would love to hear what you thought of tonight’s ep !


@maevemauvaise when I was feeling really low, I used to really like watching Victoria Wood because she had such a lovely warm sense of humour but also recognised that sometimes things could be sad. There’s a playlist of her songs here:

But also I really recommend watching her show ‘dinnerladies’ if you can get hold of it, because it is the televisual equivalent of a warm hug and it made me feel so much better after watching it. It’s beautifully observed, and the humour comes from that - people just being people, in all their messy poignant ways, and it’s told very fondly, and just… I dunno, it made me feel better.

Which is worse, David Cameron thinks to himself at the moment of awakening, being bald or being short? With practiced, even virtuoso languidness, he rolls to his right, expecting to encounter his wife next to him. He rolls with the bland eroticism of the extremely hungover. He’s a horndog, he’s an animal, he’s terrible, whatever, he doesn’t give a shit, he couldn’t care less. But, he discovers, he is alone. He opens his eyes. The bed is unfamiliar, the room more so. David Cameron looks around himself. The room appears to belong to a child. There is a poster on the wall of a young woman who David Cameron does not recognise. And yet, he recognises something in her, something… no, no, not now, not here.

David Cameron looks around and is relieved to see his sleeveless Fischerspooner t-shirt is intact on the floor, although crumpled, bereft looking, alone. David Cameron gets up. In a short time he finds his combat trousers, his Reebok Classics. David Cameron can’t locate his phone, and this particular detail causes his right arm to shoot out in front of him, palm turned upwards, vibrating. In desperation, David Cameron looks around the room, his eyes the eyes of a rattled horse. David Cameron sees the poster, and sees in it something like a benediction, and yet - like so many of the benedictions he’s received in his dog of a life - one that he can’t take advantage of, not here, not now. Without knowing this woman’s name, he can’t google image search her, and it’s not a good idea to take a picture of the poster on his phone, and where is his phone anyway?

Having failed to locate the phone, David Cameron leaves the house, and finds himself on a street of meagre, small little houses, all of which, no doubt, would be completely choc full of wankers. With no sense of the nearest tube station, or taxi rank, no GPS, David Cameron walks in the direction of the sunlight. A direction, he thinks to himself, both metaphorically and literally, and in every other sense, I have always walked in. A little way ahead he can see a corner shop, and David Cameron thinks in incredible detail, about the shrink wrapped pork pie he will be able to eat in scant moments. He picks up the pace, but as he does something of the previous night emerges. David Cameron sees himself, as though punishing himself by watching a miserable Channel Four documentary, sees himself in the middle of the empty dance floor of a regional night club; sees himself, as though seeing himself caught on camera, played on a miserable local news programme, moving around the side of the club, picking up unattended drinks, downing each one, moving on; sees himself, as though seeing himself ripping out hair extensions in a blocky video on World Star, a bouncer’s hand on his back, being led out into the cold night. And then nothing.

David Cameron thinks of the pork pie. He thinks of the woman in the poster. He walks, as he always has walked, in the direction of the sunlight.
Naomie Harris to Receive 2016 BIFA Variety Award
The British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) announced today that Naomie Harris will receive this year’s Variety Award at the ceremony on Sunday 4 December. Harris will be the first black woman to receive the honour.

“She will be the first black woman to win the prestigious prize - and follows fellow Bond star Daniel Craig, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sir Michael Caine and Dame Helen Mirren in winning the accolade.

The award recognises a director, actor, writer or producer who has made a global impact and helped to focus the international spotlight on film in the UK”.

Some random thoughts about my Stendan rewatch (I’m now up to October 2011):

I think Ste’s look from 2011 is my favourite. His hair with the shaved fuzzy sides, the extra goldeness of his skin, the trackies and the polo shirts. Gorgeous.

I miss when the show used to recognise how much Ste and Amy loved each other. Their friendship was so strong back then. Saying that, I love the explosive scene where Amy started shouting at Ste about stopping her from going to New York, and referenced the beatings. Very powerful stuff.

Lee will forever be my favourite of Amy’s love interests. I just adore him in general and when the inevitable Duncan from Blue/Ste affair happens (ugh) I hope Alex Carter briefly returns and takes Amy away from the village. A girl can dream.

Brendan with his prison beard remains as glorious as ever.

The lack of Stendan scenes is painful.

I don’t think Ste ever really believed that Brendan was capable of killing those girls (come on, not even Amy believed it) but he needed to hate him at that point. He’d been let down too many times and it was just easier to believe he was guilty.

I love Jay Duffy as Declan.

Baby Lucas is one of the cutest things on this earth.

Ste’s sass is ON FIRE during this time. And I love his absolute fury when he overhears Lee saying that Ste would choose Lucas over Leah. He’s not having any of it. They’re both his children.

Emmett and Jamie Lomas work wonderfully together. I love their back and forth sparring.

Cheryl was such a terrible friend to Lynsey. I know Silas fooled a lot of people, but why is it so hard to believe that a guy his age could actually be a killer? I still love her though. Bronagh’s just too good.

I love how Jacqui takes Lynsey in (shame that that friendship was never carried on with) and it makes me think of the lovely Claire Cooper/Karen Hassan friendship that exists now.

Love the few Tony/Jacqui scenes we get during this time. SO much history and love there. But saying that, I adore Rhys and Jacqui too (and I love seeing Terry the dog again!) Forever bitter that they had Rhys cheat with Cindy. One of the most ridiculous decisions ever.

Overall 2011 is a really strong year.

anonymous asked:

So I'm assuming then that Louis did not attend the UMA's?

I have no idea. I know that dumb and dumber (Calvin and Oli) were snapchatting from there but I think Calvin is working there? I don’t know. I don’t care. As far as I can gather from Twitter whispers people think they saw she who shall not be named gettin her beard duties on, but I don’t honestly think I’d recognise her if she was standing in front of me, so who’s to say. Americans tend to talk quite loudly, so I would be more likely to believe it if someone said that they heard some Yankee Doodle Beardy shoutin about whatever it is she has to say. 

[ jason is nestled at the end of the
main room’s sofa, drink in hand while
quietly admiring the themed lights
surrounding him that are accompanied
by the skyscrapers’ flickering lustre from
the outside. he’s dressed up in a luke
skywalker costume, namely the star wars
character’s tatooine attire, which he had
bought from a halloween shop a few days
prior with the leftover money he had on him
when he arrived to harry’s mansion. (i should
look for a job after this night)
, he concludes.
although jason’s arrival had been welcomed by
both andrew and harry himself, readjustment
has taken time, and acceptance of circumstance
even more so. the risk of never seeing or being
recognised by his family again feels beyond
disheartening, because when he was on the
road miles away from home, he could at his
worst find solace in their future reunion, but now he
can’t do that anymore. (what is it that people say when
you’re feeling somber?
talk it outno, not now).
jason takes a mouthful of his beverage and slumps
further down into the cushioning. albeit he’d rather
be without the homesickness, the mood and scenery
do mellow him out; the glowing illuminants and the
height above ground level truly does give him the
impression of being on board a spaceship, if not to
mention the fact that the alcohol’s sedative and
stimulant effects has begun to influence him, in which
he feels afloat and coated with embracing haze. jason
can barely feel his face start to soften into a coy grin and
his eyes gradually becoming glossier as the minutes pass, 
and with his right leg stuck out before him, his foot begins
to leisurely sway from left to right, along to the beat of the, 
now almost buzzing, music. he’s alright up here.
