so i had to do one

anonymous asked:

Had a woman last night have a heart attack in the toy section in mart-k. As first aid officer and the only one working with a first aid certificate, I performed cpr and got the manager to call 000. It took nearly half an hour for the ambulance to show up because the easter traffic so I had to do cpr for the half hour. I had to stay another hour and a half filling paperwork and got home at nearly 1am. Got a call this morning saying the woman is recovering and I have the rest of the week off.

Dear Shea Moisture, 

A couple of years ago, I wrote a piece about my natural hair journey. After watching your recent ad, I think this would be a great time to revisit it. It went a little something like this:

“Growing up, my mom always did my hair. I had the bubbles, the clips, the pigtails, the beads, the fish pigtails, (you know, one in the front of yo head and another in the back lol), braids, twists, bantu knots (better known as chiney bumps to Jamaicans). I had them all. Then my mom started to take me to her friend who braided my hair. I love the lady, but she is where my problems started. I guess once she got tired of having to do my “difficult to manage hair” she told my mom to put a kiddy perm in it so it would be easier to do. And my mom listened. I was only 8. So of course that much chemicals in my hair at such a young age, was a complete disaster. My mom only did it for about a year and then stopped. She started braiding my hair again, this time with extensions, so that my hair had protection and time to grow. Once I got to middle school, I began developing a deep sense of hate for my hair. Whenever I wore my hair out, it was above my shoulders and that for me was too short. I considered myself “bald headed”. I was actually called that too by other girls in my school. Even if I had in box braids, I was still teased for being “bald” because girls who had “good hair” didn’t wear fake hair. Of course I was obsessed with having long hair because that’s all that I saw around me. So I started to get blow outs. At this time, my hair was healthy and thick. But that didn’t last for long because it began breaking due to excessive heat and also because of the cotton scarves and hats I constantly wore. Because of that combined with the fact that every time I went to a salon, to get my hair done, stylists would make rude remarks and consistently tell me and my mother that I needed a perm, I returned back to getting them. By my own choice this time. I was 14.


My hair began falling out and in the back of my head, the hair was pretty non existent. You could literally see through my hair because it was thinning so bad. I became extremely insecure about my hair at this time. I absolutely HATED it. I would look in the mirror and just be completely disgusted. I cried A LOT. My mom, after seeing how damaged my hair was getting, took me to a Black hair care professional. She was the first Black stylist I ever went to (besides for braids). She immediately told me that my hair was over processed, which meant my previous stylist was perming my ends which is a BIG no no. Her name was Shirley and she saved my life lol. She literally nursed my hair back to health after a drastic cut (I was still getting perms). But I was still not completely happy with the thinness of my hair. So before junior year, I got a weave! My confidence was beginning to blossom when I started wearing weaves even though it wasn’t my hair. I think weaves really changed the way I thought about myself and my hair. After my first weave I stopped perming my hair. I was between weaves and braids for the next 2 years. My hair did a complete 180 and grew back really strong. When I first took out my weave and braids after 2 years, I found that I was still insecure. I still didn’t want to wash my hair in a salon because of fear of what other people would think about my natural shrinkage. I was even afraid to display my fro in front of friends and family! I thought people would only see me as nappy headed, which was negative to me. But then once I started to witness the natural hair movement and girls with hair like mine, I was so touched. Suddenly I was like “fuck this! my hair is beautiful!”. And for the first time I actually believed it. I am 20 now and I have just began embracing my natural hair. It gets tough sometimes. Most of the time I just want to rip it out and cut it off but I look back at this crazy journey and I am so proud of myself. I really think it takes time as a Black girl to learn to love your hair because there are so many people that tell you it’s ugly. We see it in movies, shows, and on magazines. We hear it from kids at school, from our own family members, our own mothers, and our own Black men. But there’s gonna be a time when you just have to tune out everyone for the sake of your own sanity. Because we “don’t have hair” when we wear weave, we’re “ghetto” when we wear braids, we’re “ugly” when we wear our natural hair, and we’re “trying to be white” when we perm our hair. We’ll never be enough for them, but who gives a shit? We have to be enough for ourselves. That’s all that matters.”

As you can see, Shea Moisture, my natural hair journey has not been a pretty one, like most Black girls. And after experiencing what I have experienced and what so many of us Black women have experienced, I am completely perplexed to how you could ever think that our “hair hate” is equal to the “hair hate” of three white women with straight, blonde and red hair. White women, who are seen as the pinnacle of beauty around the globe. I did not take you for a tone deaf, reckless, and irresponsible company. I thought that Black hair companies like you would be more than aware of white beauty standards in this country and how they are directly responsible for the internalized hatred of black features. But you are not.

You probably already know this, but Black women make up the biggest percentage of your consumers. We built you. We sustain you. Yet with this ad, you sent a clear message. We are secondary to you. We are an after thought. And I know what you were probably thinking when you casted the light skin woman with 3c curls. Diversity! amirite?! No. All you did was feed into the colorism and the hierarchy in the natural hair community. That model you chose did absolutely nothing to the Black women with 4c hair (like myself) and dark skin. 

But I guess I should have known better huh? I’ve walked into Target, Walgreens, and Walmart and I have seen your products up and down the aisles. I cannot say the same for Carols Daughter or Aunt Jackie. I guess you really succeeded when you made it out of the the hair aisles in our local beauty supplies to ULTA. And maybe I should have known something was up when you started that #BreaktheWall campaign. Or maybe I should have known when you sold your company. I really should have known when nonblack friends were posting your products on snapchat for “wash day”. 

What’s even more disappointing about this ordeal, is that when shit hit the fan, you showed your true colors. 

You backed a misogynoiristic man who victim blamed Black women for their own assaults. Nice job. I bet your founder, Sofi Tucker, is turning in her grave.

I see what you’re doing. You’re not just expanding your market, your replacing your core foundation. We’ve got the message loud and clear. 

Continue centering white women and preaching that #allhairhatematters bullshit. But Black women are done with being erased and we are no longer sitting around and waiting for anyone to acknowledge, accredit, or validate us. 

In the iconic and legendary words of Robin Stokes, “a white woman can have your sorry ass”. And black woman will not be there when you come looking for us.

Sincerely,

                An angry Black woman. 

This was the cake at my wedding. You can see it has blueberries all around and some carrots on the bottom.

Unfortunately, Judy lost an arm in the line of duty and Nick seemed to have dyed his fur a bit xD

Then on my honeymoon, I happened to find this boat. I guess Nick would name a boat like that if he had one.

And at the beach, I tried to make some figures in sand, this is the best I could do.

And what was my surprise when I found my wife doing this.


She isn’t that much into zootopia but she said I like it so much that she decided to make a sand fox just for me

, and after she finished she started working on my judy sand figure

Can you recommend some of your favorite manhwa? Preferably translated ones since my Korean is sucky but non-translated is fine too lol

I’m SO GLAD YOU ASKED!

Window to Window (BL)

it’s about childhood friends Ginu and Yubin and man do I love these boys. Like, if I was stuck on an island and I had to pick two webtoon characters to be with me, I’d be with Ginu and Yubin (although Sangwoo and Bum would be a close first).

Ginu’s handsome, tall, but very cuddly and clingy whereas Yubin is more moody and dark, trying to hide his torch for Ginu.

What Lies at The End (BL)

So Taemin, this really rad dude got into an accident and suddenly he woke up as this high school student named Siwon, a weak and often bullied kid. Taemin, meets his old friend Woojin who disappeared from his life and somehow, he figures out Taemin’s little body swapping secret. 

I actually feel like jumping into this manhwa and like fighting every ugly mug there because I don’t like bullies and I DON’T LIKE JOOHOON. That mf can find me in the alleyway of McDonald’s.

Lover Boy (BL)

Eunho has been in love with Jaeha, a man several years older than him. After Jaeha got married, the love Eunho had for him was smothered as he grew up and moved on with his life. After coincidentally meeting Jaeha again at a cafe, Eunho tries to make his love come true.

So this is less of a plot, which is surprising that I like it considering that I get really bored if it’s only smut and no substance. But honestly, the character development is so sweet and pure that I end up liking it anyways because the author is less about some antagonist in the story ruining shit up but more of the emotional growth between Eunho and Jaeha.

What Does the Fox Say? (GL)

Seongji has just joined a mobile game company. Her face is stoic and she appears displeasing and even scary at times but her heart is very pure and she tries her best. Sumin, on the other hand, is her manager and a hot blooded woman who doesn’t hesitate to be crafty with her work and her workers.

OMG the art is so good and the story is a kind of slow in the beginning but the intense curiosity of Seongji and Sumin really keeps you on edge. This is probably one of my favorite GL webtoons ever not only because of the art but all of the characters so interesting.

I’m sure there’s more but these are some of my all-time favorites. 

Here is actually the BIGGEST Easter Egg in The Last Jedi Trailer that no one is talking about. Those aren’t stars, those are KYBER CRYSTALS (crystals = The Whills = Rey)

The very first shot of the trailer. It seems to be depicting a night sky.

However.

I believe this to be a red herring, and that it is actually to do something much more important.

I don’t think that’s a shot of stars. I think that’s a shot showing stones.

More specifically, kyber crystals.

Why is this significant and why do I think that this is actually what they are alluding to? 

Here is the breakdown:

Rogue one (Jedha, Guardians of the Whills, Kyber Crystals) + Skywalker lightsaber + Force Vision = Ancient Order of the Whills = Rey

Originally posted by jesuschristnation

It’s okay to be confused.

This is a theory I have had for a while, and when I saw that first shot, I started to grin like crazy, because it slotted into meta so well that I became convinced that what I predict will happen, will actually happen.

I recommend to read my post for the full theory and then look back at the beginning of the TLJ trailer:

http://sakurau121.tumblr.com/post/154779656150/how-does-rogue-one-effect-the-future-of-star-wars

If not, I will try to make this theory explanation as short and clear as possible, but bear with me!

1. Rogue One = Introduction to The Whills, Kyber Crystals, Temples

It’s no coincidence that Rogue One introduced us to the idea of the Guardian of the Whills, Jedha and Kyber Crystals. Jedha is home to the ‘Kyber Temple’ a.k.a. Temple of the Whills, which actually tells you a lot, because it means that the Whills and Kyber Crystals are closely linked together.

The whole exploration of the force in RO has absolutely nothing to do with the Jedi but is actually tied to the Whills.


In other words, the Whills as an Order is older than the Jedi. Luke, I think, was searching for the first Jedi Temple.

But what he found on Achto wasn’t a Jedi Temple. What he found was the original Temple of the Whills. 

Why can I make this assumption?

The beginning of the trailer proves this, because, like Jedha, Achto has kyber crystals hidden underneath it’s rocky surface. Again, this is associated to the Whills, not the Jedi. RO explicitly points this out and it is completely deliberate.

Hence:

There is a rumor going around that one of these books is ‘The Journal of the Whills’ and that is what Luke was searching for. I think this is actually probable.

2. Rey + Skywalker lightsaber a.k.a. Kyber Crystal Within

I  believe that the lightsaber itself is actually irrelevant. It doesn’t matter who made the lightsaber or even who used it. It is the crystal inside which is the crucial point. The crystal, which has Force energy within it, called to Rey, and the way that she reacted to it when she touched the lightsaber, is unique to her and her alone.

Nobody else, not even Anakin, Luke or Obi Wan, has had a reaction like Rey has to the lightsaber. And in fact, it’s to do with her connection to the kyber crystal, not the lightsaber.

3. Rey + Force Vision

The vision that Rey experiences involves her hearing the voice of Obi Wan Kenobi, and unlike the other voices, what he says is new and most importantly, present. This is not a voice of the past, but a voice speaking directly to Rey.

“The ability to defy oblivion can be achieved, but only for oneself. It was accomplished by a Shaman of the Whills. It is a state acquired through compassion, not greed.“


So Qui Gon Jinn informs Yoda. He explains that he learned how to become a ‘Force Ghost’, a state of eternal consciousness, from a Shaman of the Whills.

The Whills were beings who had a close connection to the Force, and it is these beings who I think might possibly be the first known Force Sensitives in the galaxy.

I think Rey’s connection to the crystal [her force vision] equals to a connection to those who are in a state of eternal consciousness, because Kyber Crystals are connected to the Whills. ‘Whills’ in the earliest draft of the original SW film, according to George Lucas, was another word for the Force.

Kyber Crystal = eternal consciousness = Whills

So…. what does this prove?

It proves that Rey herself is actually a descendant or part of the Ancient Order of the Whills.

She is clearly a Force-sensitive, but perhaps her origins are neither from the light side or dark side, but from something infinitely more ancient….. It would explain a lot about that Force Vision, for if she was a ‘Whill’, then it would explain why the kyber crystal inside Anakin’s lightsaber called out to her, in a way that it hasn’t for any other Force Sensitive in the current films.

Perhaps she has the power to unlock other Force abilities from the crystals, and this is what Luke and herself are discovering, according to the rumours about some scenes in Episode VIII.

So?

Now, let’s look at the beginning of TLJ trailer.

We start with what we think are stars. Then the music changes as the shot transforms… from what we think are meaningless stars to…..

diamond-like stones, glinting off the screen….. surrounded by rock. They become more material and solid. I think this is deliberate.

then Rey’s hand connects to the glittering stones and we pan up to her shocked face.

This, is a visual description of her Force Back Vision in TFA.

The Kyber Crystal’s underneath the Achto Temple a.k.a. the Whills Temple, Rey connecting to it, as she did with the Skywalker crystal, and her shocked face, similar to her expression after experiencing the Force Back Vision due to her connection to the kyber crystal.

It’s clever, and if my theory is right, pretty meta.

in other words….

The Temple + Kyber Crystal + Force Back = The Whills = Rey

So hey? What do guys think? Is a load of rubbish or do you think this is a possibility? Let me know! :D

oh, and as for Kylo Ren?

im sure he ain’t happy with his cracked kyber crystal. What if he is after kyber crystals and not Luke Skywalker? He and Luke possibly found something out about the Whills and kyber crystals….

therefore he wants to get Rey because he saw her connection to the Skywalker crystal and wants to get knowledge over how to wield the kyber crystals true powers, such as force back visions? so far jedi have only managed to make lightsabers out of them, whereas Rey, a Whill?, is experiencing visions….

Jonathan Byers had grown very accustomed to people whispering about him, often pointing and giggling amongst themselves as they did so. Because of this, it didn’t bother him when a few of his peers began gossiping about him – until he heard his mother’s and brother’s names come up.

“I still don’t think that Will Byers ever really went missing. That freak show of a family probably just wanted to land some paid interviews or something.”

I think the mom is a bit of a schizo. She probably just had a psychotic break and made the whole thing up.”

Jonathan could hear the teacher yelling after him as he left the room. He knew that if he had to sit there and listen to those idiots for another second, he’d have ended up getting suspended. The teachers would undoubtedly be looking for him, so he went to the one place he knew they’d never check.

“What are you two doing here?” 

Naomi and Jade both stood in front of my door with mischievous smiles on their faces. Jade was holding onto three glasses, and Naomi revealed a bottle of wine she had hidden behind her. “We call it the new wife initiation” 

"New wife initiation?” I laughed. 

“Yep, you’re one of us now. I think that deserves a toast”. They walked inside, taking their seat on the floor. One of us now. That still sounds weird to me. Jade poured the drinks, as Naomi handed me a glass. 

“I just want you to know that you’ve got friends here” She admitted. I gave her a smile. She’s been so supportive and nice to me, even when I haven’t exactly reciprocated the same kindness. “You guys are awesome” I replied.  

The three of us toasted, taking a sip of our drinks. We were having a great time talking about life, love, and all the things we missed about the old world. The night and wine eventually turned us into three giggling girls, time passing by quickly without any of us realizing it. 

“So, have you and Negan…?” Jade raised her brows suggestively at me. 

“Uh..no” I admitted taking a sip of the wine, nervously tucking a strand of hair behind my ear.

i do not know if i ever told anyone this but one time in the seventh grade i was in math class and we were doing some shit about circles ans i had gotten all of the answers right so i flipped the paper over and started doodling gundam tanaka. and the chatter slowly just kind of stops and i look up and see this 60 year old woman giving me the death stare and shes like “what are you doing” and i go “drawing” and she asks “is that more important than math” and of course it is but i don’t want to piss her off so i just say “n-no” and class resumes

the story frightens me because that is the only proof i can remember of me liking this franchise from like. 2014

HEY SLABS, I am home PHEW.

Ok ok, so now that I have a keyboard, let me give you THE JUICY story (summarized).

We were in the middle of an unreasonably hard graded activity when suddenly the tremor starts, and we are in the 5th floor, so it shook baby shook, and that was dandy and all except one friend of mine is utterly terrified by them shakey-shakes, so we had to hug her and hold her because she was really, really freaking out. After that, the evac sirens started blaring so we left, and I was about to come here when another friend asked me “where are you going?” and I said “home” and she was like “YOU WHAT” and she forbid me from doing so because I live close to the sea and she knows this. So OK we evac together like good kids and find ourselves on top of the hill, it was cool, we kinda just hung out for a while, then I dropped them off at places where they could take buses to their respective homes, which involved walking up two different hills, then walking those back, and then walking back home. My legs are beef jerky but I don’t feel bad, it was cool, I also used the opportunity to do some urbex (more on this next post), so then I waited for the people and the traffic to chill down some while I drank some juice on an abandoned building, and then slowly made my way home.

Now, the tremor itself, “earthquake” as it is technically called, was 6.9 to 7.1 Richter scale, which in Chile is not really worrisome, and it indeed didn’t do jack. What is worrisome, however, and the reason for the evac, is that it happened merely 20 kilometers off the coast, and the offending seismic move didn’t happen in some deep bedrock, it happened very close to the surface. Seismic trivia: When an earthquake’s epicenter is close to the surface and not far off the coast, it has a noticeable effect on the waves. That usually means tsunami.

All’s cool now, though, so no worries. Thanks to everyone who sent a message! Iron’s fine too (he lives super far away from the sea so he’s got nothing to worry about either).

Alrighty, after talking with Arsil, finally got the audio file switched and working. 

Now that I know what to do, going to edit this audio clip or another one I have to not be so loud. Would be neat if it had a pie menu option for more than one audio tune. So you could switch it to whatever mood or setting you had it in. Regardless, I’m super stoked I actually got it to work. 

I don’t think you guys understand how much your love and support means to me. I don’t want to get pity or whatever but my life hasn’t been easy. I’ve been blessed with a good family and enough money to be comfortable but I’ve had a lot of shit thrown my way and it’s honestly made me feel so unlovable and unworthy.

I’m so thankful for those of you who enjoy what I do and for those of you who befriended me ❤️

When I started I knew there would be at least a few people who would like my tyler stuff. I never anticipated 1800+ followers. I never even thought that more than one of you would want to be my friend.

I value every like and reply and reblog and message so much. You guys make me feel like I can help people and do good in the world.

To some 1,800+ isn’t much but that’s more people than I can fathom. And I’m sure there are those of you who are tired of my personal bs and want more Tyler (I feel that) but I can’t do today without saying thank you.

I want to keep talking with you guys and writing hc’s and making up au’s and helping people who need a friend. I want to do art and maybe one day start a channel for it.

I have no expectations or delusions of becoming some huge internet sensation. I just want to be happy and I want to make others happy too
