Participating in the Ground Forces’ Festival proves he (PFC Jaejoong) is leading an exemplary army life. Since it is a really big deal, there must be much expectations and difficulties involved. He is enduring all that..
I can only sincerely respect him even more. I want him to take care of his health.

The One Piece Fandom has been the only fandom that I can call home and feel safe at. I don’t care what anyone says about how bad this is or that. Negativeness happens everywhere and things change over time. We have a bunch of fun and interact with each other and show respect to one another. I also want to give a huge shout out to every Canon and OC blogs both new and old out there who has been pulling through and never giving up in achieving their writing and rping skills!!. I love you all so much and enjoy rping the muses you dream of rping forever.

Rant

In these past couple of weeks I have been keeping in my anger towards my classmates…and to diffuse this anger out I decided to put it on tumblr…

I have heard countless of discussions of how religion is crap and how it creates danger towards society. I know about ISIS and I do not condone their actions at all.

There were also discussions about how religion is nothing and how we shouldn’t abide by it.

I heard today…“why do you even follow a book(torah, quran, bible etc)?” “its just a book full of nothing, its meaningless” “There is no such thing as God” 

It saddens me how humans don’t have EVEN the slightest respect for those who believe in a religion. It angers me how people can just throw around the word ‘religion’ and ‘God’ carelessly…i

I’m a proud Muslim and what I want more than anything in the world is for Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists and EVERY OTHER RELIGION OUT THERE to be RESPECTFUL of each other’s beliefs and values! Its time to stop this prejudice between religion.

 We should start embracing EVERY single DIFFERENT human being in this planet. 

IF YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING NICE DON’T SAY IT! 

Just be respectful of everyone…please…you don’t know how much words can really hurt, especially to something/someone they love and believe in.

I see an adventure unfolding when you begin to talk to me. It’s not about wanting you to want me romantically; it’s about just going places with your imagination, your energy, your drive. I want to follow that force, that pathway, that potential. I think we might make some kind of music, create a possible world even. I think we could have things to say to each other. I think we could bounce back and forth rather curiously. I think we could be something. Not lovers, of course, but loving, companions across the oceans, distant but together. I have ambition, hope, wonder, wishes. I have things to say. You would make me think the unthunk. You would make me say what I never imagined I would ever say. Inspire me. I will do what I can to inspire you. We might spiral.

When I was sixteen, I lost my virginity to a boy who showed me that I, too could be loved. He showed me that there are people in this world who truly do have good intentions and mean no harm. He showed me what it meant to be gentle with my heart as well as what a girl should be treated like on a daily basis. He made sure I always got home safe after school and after late night football games. He made sure to remind me how much he cared about me day in and out. He constantly left notes hidden in between my notebooks and regularly whispered sappy things into my ear. He loved to shower me with gifts to show his affection (even when I turned them down). He made sure I knew that he would respect me and that I could trust him. He made sure to never cross any lines physically and emotionally. Most importantly, he made sure to never hurt me in any form. Truth is, he made me his world, but to me he was nothing more than my first boyfriend. With his love I learned that you cannot force yourself to love someone no matter how strong their love for you is. One of my favorite John Green quotes is, “You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have some say in who hurts you.” I’d like to believe that I was his choice. I hurt him because I couldn’t love him back no matter how strong his love was. In the end, I learned that sometimes we hurt good people without meaning to.

I'm so sick of the negativity in the 100 fandom.

We are all here because the love the show. It is a great show, and having a third season is wonderful and we are all very excited to see it.

But over the past few months I have felt increasingly uncomfortable here, and it has nothing to do with he show itself, and everything to do with the fans.

To be perfectly honest, I think some of you need to grow up.

It began with the ‘ship wars’: I have seen fans attack each other over this. Bellarke, Clexa, Murven, whichever characters you like together shouldn’t be an issue for anyone else.
The writers aren’t out to get you. They are writing the story the believe in, and if that doesn’t include your ship then so be it. IT IS NOT SOMETHING YOU SHOULD TAKE PERSONALLY.
I personally like Bellamy and Clarke together, and I don’t like Lexa’s character which means I don’t like Clexa, but just because my friend likes Clexa, doesn’t meant I get personally offended. I shouldn’t get offended, just like I shouldn’t receive hate from this post because I stated that I don’t like Lexa.
We fans should be uniting together, rallying for a fourth season, showing our support for a show that we love and characters that we adore, but instead all people see is this animosity over ships. It is petty, and as the writers have stated time and time again, there is more to the show than ships.

The whole ‘brown face’ issue which has come around again after the images of Clarke were released. Guys. Seriously. Don’t be ignorant.
There is such thing as a tan. As an Australian I can verify that tans are a thing that people get when they out in the sun for a while.
Clarke has been out in the sun for 3 months, of course she is going to get a tan.
It is not cultural appropriation, it is not brown-facing.
If you want to call it any of those things, you need to call me someone that brown-faces, because I am fairly fair-skinned and get a deep tan every summer.

Hostility towards the writers. This goes back to the same thing: They are not out to get you, so do not take it personally.
These writers are professionals, who are employed to do a job, and they write what they believe is best for show; the story they want to tell.

To deal with the negativity, I have unfollowed several blogs, I have spent less and less time scrolling the 100 tags.
If you have a problem with someone and their opinions and don’t want to be seeing what they have to say, do the same thing! Unfollow, mute, block, whatever it is, but don’t set out to create anger, and do not send hateful messages. Each opinion is valid, your opinion is valid. Healthy debate is good, but do not cross the line.

What it boils down to is this: we love the show. The passion in this fandom is wonderful, and it is the reason we have a third season to look forward too.
I feel like I’m quoting Mean Girls right now; we have to stop attacking each other over personal preferences. It doesn’t fly in the real world, so why the hell should it fly in the Internet world.

Some of you need to stop being ignorant. Think before you type, look at the bigger picture, respect each other, and enjoy the wonderful show that we have.

First of all, thank you, Taylor, for being so gracious and giving me this award this evening. And I often think back to the first day I met you also.
You know, I think about when I’m in the grocery store with my daughter and I have a really great conversation about fresh juice, you know? And at the end, they say, “Oh, you’re not that bad after all.” And like, I think about it sometimes, it crosses my mind a little bit when I go to a baseball game and 60,000 people boo me. It crosses my mind a little bit. I think if I had to do it all again, I think, what would I have done? Would I have worn a leather shirt? Would I have drank that half a bottle of Hennessy and gave the rest to the audience? If I had a daughter at the time, would I have went onstage and grabbed the mic from someone else’s
You know, this arena, tomorrow it’s going to be a different set-up. Some concert, something like that. This stage will be gone. After that night, the stage was gone. But the affect that it had on people remained.
The problem was the contradiction. The contradiction is, I do fight for artists, but in that fight I somehow was disrespectful to artists. I didn’t know how to say the right thing. The perfect thing. I just sat at the Grammys and saw Justin Timberlake and Cee-Lo at the Grammys lose. Gnarls Barkley and FutureSexLoveSounds, the “SexyBack” album. And Justin, I ain’t trying to put you on blast, but I saw that man in tears, you know? And I was thinking, he deserved to win album of the year!
And this small box that we are as the entertainers of the evening, how could you explain that? Sometimes I feel like all this shit they run about beef and all that, sometimes I think I died for the artists’ opinion, for an artist to be able to have an opinion after they were successful.
I’m not no politician, bro! And look at that. Do you know how many times MTV ran that footage again? Because it got them more ratings. Do you know how many times they announced Taylor was going to give me that award because it got them more ratings? Listen to the kids, bro!
I still don’t understand awards shows. I don’t understand how they get five people who work their entire life, one, sold records, sold concert tickets, to come on a carpet, and for the first time in they life, be judged on the chopping block and have the opportunity to be considered a loser!
I don’t understand it, bruh! I don’t understand when the biggest album, when the biggest video…I’ve been conflicted bro. I just wanted people to like me more! But fuck it, bro! 2015! I will die for the art! For what I believe in! And the art ain’t always going to be polite! Y’all might be thinking right now, did he smoke something before he came out here? The answer is yes, I rolled up a lil something to knock the edge off.
I don’t know what’s going to happen tonight. I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, bro. But all I can say to my artists, my fellow artists, just worry how you feel at the time. Just worry about how you feel and don’t never, you know what I’m saying…I’m confident. I believe in myself. We are the millennials, bro! This is a new mentality, we aren’t going to control our kids with brands, we aren’t going to teach low self-esteem and hate to our kids. We’re going to teach our kids that they can be something. We’re going to teach our kids that they can stand up for themselves. We’re going to teach our kids they can believe in themselves.
If my grandfather was here right now he would not let me back down. I don’t know what I’m finna lose after this. It don’t matter though because it ain’t about me! It’s about ideas, bro! New ideas! People with ideas, people who believe in truth!
And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.

Do not take being able to see and be with your girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/etc. for granted. Treat them with respect and remind them how much they mean to you often.
