Was that an old comment or new, by MPs friend? So many people have said T has 3 kids but he said 2 so thats why I thought it was old but maby not?

He said it very recently. T just has twins I think. He could have 2,4,12 or however many kids it doesn’t matter. He’s still a father and it was a douche thing for ‘Peter’ to say. In fact just about everything he said was douchey

At 68, Jeremy Corbyn has been on the Labour Party’s left flank longer than many of his most enthusiastic supporters — the ones who nearly propelled him to an upset victory in this month’s British general election — have been alive. Bernie Sanders, who won more votes from young people in the 2016 primaries than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton combined, is 75, and has a demeanor that, honestly, reminds me of my Jewish grandfather. Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the Communist-backed candidate who, thanks to support from young people, surged in the polls ahead of the first round of France’s presidential election, is a sprightly 65.

What has driven so many young people into passionate political work, sweeping old socialists with old ideas to new heights of popularity? To understand what is going on, you have to realize that politicians like Mr. Sanders and Mr. Corbyn have carried the left-wing torch in a sort of long-distance relay, skipping generations of centrists like Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, to hand it to today’s under-35s. And you have to understand why young people are so ready to grab that torch and run with it.

Meanwhile, people my age — I’m 29 — are more in need of a robust leftist platform than ever. The post-Cold War capitalist order has failed us: Across Europe and the United States, millennials are worse off than their parents were and are too poor to start new families. In the United States, they are loaded with college debt (or far less likely to be employed without a college degree) and are engaged in precarious and non-unionized labor. Also the earth is melting.

There’s nothing inherently radical about youth. But our politics have been shaped by an era of financial crisis and government complicity. Especially since 2008, we have seen corporations take our families’ homes, exploit our medical debt and cost us our jobs. We have seen governments impose brutal austerity to please bankers. The capitalists didn’t do it by accident, they did it for profit, and they invested that profit in our political parties. For many of us, capitalism is something to fear, not celebrate, and our enemy is on Wall Street and in the City of London.

“Why Are So Many Young Voters Falling For Old Socialists?” by Sarah Leonard, New York Times

Do you ever just read your own writing and

the four horsemen of the apocalypse 

I don’t think people realize how much things would change if BG ended. Streams/sales would go up; not just for Louis, but for Harry and Niall (and the band). Fandom participation would skyrocket, probably moreso than it’s been seen since the hiatus. People would actually be engaged, and /want/ to be engaged and not feel like its a chore or a mental exercise to be here. Fandom projects would explode; SOTT/JHO /and/ This Town would likely peak the charts again. And /so/ many louies/larries new and old would come out of the woodwork, like. BG ending would change everything, and I don’t say that lightly. Because all sides of this fandom have grown used to an existence that relies on how Much BG is happening. Had they ended it a week after the story broke, it wouldn’t have made a dent, and would probably have been memed and forgotten, but BG has been all-consuming for two years now, like a spiraling black hole. And if they were to shut that hole down, man… that would feel like actually getting the ground back under our feet and seeing where to go from there. BG changed this fandom and I don’t know if it’ll be the same again but we need to find out. *** **

I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.

With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.

They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.

So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.

They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?

I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

2012 v 2017

I was digging through my art tag on my main for inspiration and discovered this gem from 2012, and BOY was that not startling at all. So being me, I decided to redraw it and see how it looks in my current style :^)

How Many Tennis Balls?

Drabble request by @deanssweetheart23: Hi! So glad you’re taking drabble request again!

(I get it cause finals are killing me as well) Thank you for the amazing things you post <3

Version en Español:¿Cuántas Pelotas de Tenis?


“What does this question even mean?” you muttered, staring at your computer screen in bafflement.

Dean looked up from his own computer screen from across the room. He was lounging on the bed while you sat at the desk, trying to focus on your preparation. “What question is it?”

“How many tennis balls can you fit into a limousine?” You’d practiced for dozens of job interviews and that question was never one that came up in an actual interview, or any of your practices. “I feel like that’s not a normal interview question.”

The only things I care about is this world is doing the necessary inner work so that I can level up, connecting with like-minded souls and living a life of bliss and creativity. So many people are currently thriving on history repeating itself; marching; protesting; hating another because of the color of their skin. Like, no. I’m not participating. I see the bigger picture and I know my purpose. I’m gone get this healing work done and assist in raising the vibration of this planet. Ya’ll will have to continue your cycles of violence, hatred and projection of all your repressed shit on your own.
