so it's just getting thrown out there

anonymous asked:

wait, sorry, i'm a bit slow, but how can perseverance be warped into passiveness? perseverance is that you keep going and don't stop, mostly, but passiveness? is just passive?

Welp. One way of thinking of it is this: perseverance can mean sticking it out to the end regardless of what’s happening, and regardless of the outcome.

So it can be long term determination kinda. At it’s best it’s literally rolling with the punching, coming out on top and seeing something to the end regardless of the speed bumps thrown at you. It can be that strength that gets you through difficult things.

Or, at its worst, it can be going along with things regardless of what’s happening. A passive submission to circumstances. Where you are putting up with something without actively making steps to change those circumstances. 

But both are extremes, and just some insight into my brain space. That being said, my word ain’t law, dude =U 

consider: the first time bitty wore short shorts and a tank in front of jack

it wasn’t on purpose, not at all, he’s just thrown on some clothes and wandered out to make his boyfriend something good-but-within-his-nutrition-plan to have on his off day.

jack’s taking advantage of the fact that he doesn’t actually have to get up to keep his head literally under the covers, not asleep (his body clock doesn’t allow it) but not confronting the day because no

but eventually the smell of something drags him up, and the bed doesn’t feel right without bitty there, despite bitty not actually having stayed over very much at all, and he meanders into the kitchen, tripping over a pair of socks in the hall, thinking, inanely, god he loves this boy

and he gets to the end of the hall, and just. stops. mouth hanging open in the most unflattering way because he hasn’t fully woken up yet, and now his brain is even further away from online

because all he sees is skin, and so so much of it. pale and inviting and his as bitty dances around, headphones in

and bitty turns, plate in hand, startles a little when he sees jack, and smiles all soft and inviting

and then he realises jacks not responding, pulls out his headphones with his little finger and a bit of clever plate acrobatics, all “Jack, honey?”

and jack’s only response is a somewhat strangled “uhh”

anyway i would like 2 acknowledge and appreciate flight log departure/fly without at least 1 person trying to squeeze turbulence/hard carry in there somehow like dont get me wrong turbulence was incredible and continued to get got7′s name out there but it didn’t do even half the things for got7 that departure did??? idec if this is petty or unnecessary lmao but id just like to acknowledge departure by itself without all the other albums being thrown in there like departure literally put got7′s name on the map it took them international it got them their 1st major win and now its got them their 1st gaon chart album of the year award so sorry i cant have a conversation abt departure if u mention turbulence bc its a whole other ball game my friend

Don't feel sad my love, the Tell Dan to Shut Up jokes kind of bother me too? I know they're just jokes! Just lols and teasing and stuff. But I tend to be really sensitive to negativity, and sometimes I can't help it even if I know it's not meant seriously! Like the #killdan thing that people were joking about a few weeks back genuinely upset me. So it's not just you!! Reading stuff like that makes me anxious too; I don't want Dan to shut up, I want him to be as Extra as he wants to be!

i love you :(( i love him too his extraness resonates within my soul i want him to yell into my ear and make me go deaf

ok so i’ve seen this post going around and im just gonna say it
if you think “coming out” as wiccan or a witch or anything is “”“harder”“”“ or ”“"more oppressive”“” than coming out as LGBT+ i have to say that’s fucking stupid and wrong. lgbt people can come out and be thrown out of homes, get abused, get MURDERED for fucks sake. its not harder to “come out” (using that very lightly) as having a religious belief/faith or whatever
ive seen a post saying “the worst thing that will happen is you’ll get called a fag, and you’ll agree because it’s true” some people??? don’t wanna be called slurs??

@bpdskullgrunt​ @oh-god-not-her lio/den used 2 have a vent/rant board and all the homophobes + transphobes and other bigots would come out of the woodworks… like every day someone was being vile etc. slurs were thrown around and everything

mods used to just delete threads instead of reprimanding ppl so me + some others started posting screencaps on here of bigots being bigots so they would be held accountable and ppl knew who to avoid. staff IP banned us & locked the vent/rant boards to non users, eventually getting rid of it completely. our reasons for banning were publicly shaming other members iirc. they did all this to save their nasty ass userbase :’0 amazing

they also permabanned a trans guy who talked about being trans too much bc ppl in his threads wouldnt stop being transphobic so they…. banned him… instead… amazing ppl working on lio/den dot com

it was my friend’s birthday this past tuesday, so i drew her d&d character from our campaign: pablo! here is a list of things pablo has done in the 3 sessions we’ve met so far:

  • thrown a child over an easily traversable creek
  • seduced a goblin in order to get out of a bribe
  • like, just picked up a barrel of flour and shook it
  • did synchronized swimming in a cistern
  • knocked a door of a house completely off its hinges
  • twice
Military Man and The Bar Girl

@alwaysthesasswolfalpha

It was a usual scene for Erica. Friday nights were always louder, usually kids trying to get into the bar and being thrown out, or some chicks 21st birthday where usually Erica had to keep tabs on her to make sure her idiot friends didn’t do something stupid. But this week, it was a bit louder. The uniforms, as Erica so kindly loves to call them, were back from wherever they were fighting at. Erica’s never had a good view on war and soldiers. Most from her town were even patriotic, they just wanted benefits, or the ‘privilege’ to say they were in the army. 

Its also time for idiots to try to buy rounds for the good old boys, which made Erica’s night more of a living hell. A man came up to her in uniform, her mind went straight to exactly what they always want. “No, you don’t get free shots just because you are in the military.” She said, her eyes not really seeing who it was, just seeing the uniform from the corner of her eyes as she dried a couple glasses. 

So get this…Jared has confirmed himself that he is involved with the ‘You Are Not Alone’ campaign after a tremendous amount of negativity was thrown Jensen & Misha’s way.

We always talk about our fandom as being like family but stuff like this just proves that for some sections, this is a load of rubbish.

I couldn’t believe the vitriol being handed out to Misha & Jensen for this. When Jensen & Jared came together for a t shirt campaign this didn’t happen so why does it happen when it’s Jensen & Misha?

The laughable thing is that I’m constantly seeing comments blaming 'Misha fans’ for a lot of the negative sides of the fandom but I guess this proves that it isn’t just the Misha fans after all. Dreadful that Jensen had to make a comment in the live stream to assure fans that Jared was involved. They can do things separately people, it doesn’t mean anything. 😒

I love Supernatural with all my heart & the cast are awesome but some of the fans should be ashamed of some of their possessive & frankly obsessive behaviour. I attended the Hannibal con in October (my first ever con) & many people there were saying that the worst cons they’ve ever been to were SPN ones because of some factions in the fandom. Such a shame as the cast are the best cast on TV. They deserve better tbh.

This seems promising.

oh my god, karkat. Two lines in and I’m losing it already.

This is a work of fucking art. I’m gonna print this entire thing out and nail it to my door so I can look at it evert morning and remember that I can never hope to write dialogue this good. I have no words.

asdfkglmnopldorgfltbrm

this is the best fucking thing i’ve ever laid eyes upon. holy shit

Of course John would be so nonchalant about it. You can just see Karkat staring blankly at the screen as his train of thought gets violently thrown off its rails after a direct collision with the phrase “hi karkat!”.  It’s wonderful.

Poor guy. His fate had been sealed the moment he attempted contact with John Human, Friendship Specialist Extraordinaire. Now the microscopic worms of this disease are nesting deep inside his brain, rotting it slowly. The illness has claimed another victim.

An aside: oh god will this bug get off my desk arleady. Sir. Madame. Excuse me but could you get off? Please? You need to get off. I’m trying to write a reaction here and you’re rather killling the mood. No, this is neither an exit nor the moon, it’s my fucking computer screen and knocking yourself against it won’t help you in any endeavor I can imagine.

So here’s Karkat, subtly dancing around inviting John to a romantic hatedate, candles and all. And what is John’s response?

Ouch. Poor guy.

Karkat that doesn’t even make sense. You okay dude

Oh man, this whole thing. There’s Karkat getting kismesisblocked, again. There’s him running out of complex metaphors and collapsing in a puddle of fuck you’s. There’s “see you soon”, which can only mean they’re gonna meet at some point and THANK GOD I’VE BEEN WORRIED THEY’D BE STUCK IN SEPARATE PLANES OF EXISTENCE FOREVER. I was so concerned about this, because between the backwards trolling, the miscommunications and half the trolls refusing to communicate there haven’t been many chances to form linear relationships and if the last John heard of Karkat was some shitty trolling attempt from minute 1 it would break my heart into a million pieces. So thank every possible deity that isn’t happening. Can’t wait for them to actually meet.

In conclusion, this is my favorite log so far and I am in fact convinced that God made this world solely so this piece of text could one day be written.

I don’t think I’ll ever get over the fact that c-clown and speed disbanded. They deserved so much yet got so little. They had so much to offer us, yet they were ignored and thrown into the sidelines. The music they made were literally some of the best out there but I guess none of that matters if you don’t have the power or money to support yourself… the unfairness of the kpop industry is just really disappointing.

seriously the bear was thrown on stage randomly by a fan and someone in the crew took it and decided to dress it up in expensive accessories and attire including a rolex watch, leather jackets, bondage gear, a motorcycle, a cadillac, a swiveling chair, etc. things started to get out of control when they opened up a twitter account (that i believe josh was the first to follow) which now has over 100k followers. these bears go out to gay districts and party like it’s the end of the world with drag queens - how do i know that? the queens took a selfie and posted it incredibly enthused. not too long ago the bears retaliated in a savage like manor when they thought they were threatened by a potato. now i’m to believe from this interview with josh of all people that the bears are insignificant and is harbored by a random individual not associated with 1D at all? 

there’s a planet out there in the universe without a star to orbit around, it’s just alone in space. and that’s so sad?? and it gets worse because scientists think it came from our solar system, and that without this planet being thrown out of our solar system, earth would’ve been chucked out instead because of jupiter’s gravity. and that’s so awful like its loneliness is why we’re here now and i know it’s not sentient but i just wanna say thanks, bud, for doing that for us

Journal52 Week 9 “That Thing You Love”

This spread shows everything I love about art journaling. Each piece of paper represents something that thrills me - mystery, discovery and treasure -   mundane and profound. The joys and pains of life are written indelible on papers that survive.

The papers are all vintage. The background with pink ink are letters from the 70s that were part of a divorce file I salvaged at an estate sale.The envelope is from the 50s and has a recipe on the back. Inside are grocery lists spanning the ages, including one I found just last week on the street. The ID card and bird cut-out are from scrapbooks passed onto me at a sale - the family was afraid they’d get thrown away because no one wanted them. I discovered the type scraps in the spine of another old book, revealing its secrets while I gently took it apart. And finally, the filmstrip and photo of nakey sailor butt. The photo was my grandfather’s and I want the original with its filmmates, so I scanned and printed it photo booth style on well-stained vintage paper. 

Jace Defense Squad

It literally hurts my soul to see how much hate this boys gets. Its so ridiculous. Just because he isn’t part of your favorite ship? Over the past year these are things I’ve seen posted about Jace Wayland:

  • He’s selfish
  • He doesn’t care about Alec or Izzy
  • He doesn’t love Alec
  • He is manipulating Alec and Izzy to do what he selfishly wants
  • Alec should find a better parabatai
  • He deserves to be thrown out the Lightwood family
  • He does not deserve Clary’s love and support
  • He’s is annoying
  • He’s homophobic
  • He should get over his abandonment and abuse issues because Alec and Izzy have bigger problems and he’s just being an annoying cry baby
  • The writers should just kill Jace so M@lec should get more screen time

I am SERIOUS about all of these. Ive actually seen others posting stuff like this. It honestly makes me ashamed to be part of this fandom. You are obviously not watching the show if you believe these things or your just not paying attention. Jace is not a villain or a bad guy. He’s just trying to find his way like every other character on this show. I don’t like Simon Lewis. AT ALL. He is my least favorite character but because I watch the show and watch his journey I can actually have sympathy when he goes through hard times. Why can’t you do the same for Jace? I love Alec Lightwood with all my heart but I had to scroll through post after post waxing on about his pain and misery every time some one dares to look at him wrong(not that I’m saying that Alec doesn’t have legit issues) but Jace’s entire world legitimately fell apart and he’s has a hard time coping but he needs to get over it. Why? So your ship can have more screen time? Seriously? I’m sure this is only going to get worse in season 2 since we know that Jace is getting his own story with Valentine and the rest of the gang will be trying to save him.  I can just see the awful posts about selfish Jace is because Alec is having to look for him instead of having alone with Magnus. Because I’m sure Jace is just partying it up with Valentine. Geez.

The dimensions of my body just don’t make sense to me.

When I look at my shoulders, they look like they should be really tiny. But when I’m next to other people or even just in a mirror, they’re so much wider than anyone else’s. And like, I feel like I’m around 5’5” when I’m by myself but then as soon as I’m with another person that gets thrown out the window. Same thing goes with my face. When I’m imagining my self, I see my face, just with softer, more delicate features. Like its my face, just with slight differences.

I just wish some of this crap would make sense for once goddammit
