10 Impressions after 3 weeks of my Introduction to Linguistics Course

1) I fucking love neurolinguistics - its so interesting.

2) Linguistics is really cool.

3) Like really cool.

4) Linguistic Relativity is very interesting and apparently something I’m good at understanding.

5) I am very conflicted about the idea of Universal Grammar.

6) Nim Chimpsky.

7) I am persuaded to believe that Genie couldn’t learn grammar partly due to her abuse, not simply because she missed the critical period.

8) Muthafuckin Nicaraguan Sign Language is a bamf.

9) fuck prescriptivism.

10) this is definitely the major for me.

SDR2 Overwatch headcanons

Please leave me anonymous! Thank you!

A/N: As the title suggests, these are my headcanons of which hero the sdr2 characters would play as in overwatch. Some would play more than others, but still writing them all for headcanon purposes. ~ Anonymous

  • Hajime: He varies depending on the team/game, but if he were to choose, he’d choose a defense hero such as Bastion.
  • Komaeda: Probably Zenyatta or Lucio, probably because they “make others shine with hope” by boosting their stats/lowering the other team’s stats.
  • Chiaki: Varies as well, but would choose Tracer because of her maneuver ability
  • Souda: Junkrat. Definitely Junkrat.
  • Sonia: To Sonia, there’s just something about Widowmaker that intrigues her. Whether it’s her abilities or her character itself, she always plays as Widowmaker whenever she plays as Overwatch.
  • Fuyuhiko: Hanzo, but this is probably because of his design/backstory. If not Hanzo, it’s “BAMF” McCree.
  • Akane: I’d say she’d pick Soldier 76 or Winston because of their easy controls, but this is based from my experience.
  • Peko: Genji, not just because of Fuyuhiko, but she’s actually really good playing as someone as tricky, yet rewarding as Genji.
  • Nekomaru: He’d play as a tank, taking the damage for others. This leads to him playing primarily as Reinhardt.
  • Hiyoko: She’d play as Mei, building walls here and there to frustrate everyone, including her team. But if she’s feeling really competitive, she’s actually really formidable as Mei.
  • Mahiru: Not really comfortable as an offensive player, she’d main as either Symmetra or Mercy.
  • Twogami: Varies. He never chooses a favourite, leaving him decent at playing as any he sees formidable for the game.
  • Teruteru: Either the “waifu” characters (Mei, Tracer, Widowmaker, or D.Va), or Tjorborn because of his perfect height for looking at digital butts. But D.Va is his waifu, no doubt.
  • Mikan: She plays strictly as support, not knowing what to do in video games. She mains as Mercy.
  • Gundam: Reaper. Is that even a question? He’s the epitome of darkness, which is perfect for the dark lord known as Gundam Tanaka.
  • Ibuki: She loves Lucio for his “fun” character, but she finds him rather difficult when it actually comes to playing. Therefore, she’d main as Pharah, or Tracer, reciting their lines the same time as the characters. (This annoys everyone, because Ibuki WILL JUST NEVER SHUT UP)
Founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Okay, this is going to be a long one…
Let’s start with the founders…..
- all around brave guy
- pretty cool in my opinion
- had a rad sword
- bamf
- this chick was cool
- I like her
- she probably had like a huge, Beauty and the Beast library or something tbh
- a douche
- like snakes
- seriously it was all about the snakes with this guy
- had a secret man cave
- my fave
- sweetheart
- loved everyone
- probably named all her house plants
- cinnamon roll
Alright, so those are the four founder as seen by me
Fact: the only founder who is definitely a pureblood is Salazar
(Yes I’ve checked my facts shut up and listen)
Fact: all other founders are listed on the fandom wiki as being “pure blood or halfblood”
Opinion: Helga was a halfblood
Reasoning: she was open, right? So it would make sense that she would stand up for everyone if one of her parents was a muggle
Opinion: Godric and Helga were halfbloods; Rowena and Salazar were pureblood
I had a point with this, I’m almost positive I did.
I don’t know what that point WAS…
But. Founders. Yeah.

Can we take a moment (or several) to appreciate our Goddess and Warrior Queen? Felicity Meghan Smoak...

1. She faces down, yells at and threatens Ra’s al Ghul. The most dangerous man to ever walk the earth. And he respects her “fire”. 

2. Drugging Oliver. I couldn’t stop laughing. She wasn’t letting him go without a fight. Misguided? Yes. Desperate? Definitely. But still awesome.

3. Ordering Malcolm Merlyn around and Malcolm’s look of surprise and respect is everything.

4. Taking down an LoA member. Badass!

The Olicity scenes were amazing but Felicity as a stand alone character is the freaking a BAMF! She really is Oliver equal in every way and in some ways his superior. LOL!

I said it over on Twitter: This is proof that Felicity would make an amazing Bratva wife. :)

okay okay okay l i s t e n,  the angelic gift Lara Pulver is currently filming Underworld 5 (don’t even get me started on how gloriously bamf and gorg she’ll be as a vampire)   B U T   that’s definitely gonna wrap up production by April and lara hasn’t got anything else scheduled publicly and  *grabs your face and pulls you close to whisper* do you know what starts filming in April?? DO YOU??
