that's how i started thinking about it

everchangingfangirl  asked:

Hey any tips for starting vegan? Especially nutrient realted, cause i tried veganism once for like 3 weeks and got really low on nutrients. Yes i know it's not veganism but my diet but thats why i want tips for when im able to try again

Hey again everchangingfangirl ;)

My biggest advice is to start learning about nutrition, about how our body works, is not just eating foods that we think are healthy, is how we combine them and how we prepare them what counts the most. Take your favorite dishes and start looking for the plant-based options so you can start trying new flavors. Add more greens, vegetables, and fruits to your diet, but especially greens, greens combined with vitamin C will prevent you from having anemia.

Also try to take the transition as something fun, as if you were experimenting with something new that you know is going to be good for your life. Don’t see it as a deprivation of the foods you like, or that it is too hard because negativity can bring you down in seconds.

You can start cutting out the dairy and animal by-products. You can try with one at a time so it won’t be so overwhelming. Examples of animal by-products are gelatin, glycerin (unless specified that it’s from plant sources), cochineal, casein, whey, etc.

Try to make your meals at home. You can make cooking fun by inviting some friends over and doing it together. Search for your favorite recipes, there are tons of blogs of vegan food that you can check. I recommend you Healthy Vegan Cooking and one of my favorites is Vegan Yums.

Watch a few documentaries, join local groups of vegans/vegetarians or just vegan groups in general, you can learn a lot from them!

Hope this helps! :)

“Those are unusual movements.
What are you doing?”

I still can’t believe this.

I found out something so incredible and unreal today? I’m shaking as I type this and I’m going to try to explain it in the best way possible …okay so last month I bought my parents tickets to a twenty one pilots show because they’ve really grown to like the band which makes me happy. Anyways my mom was picking me up today and saying how excited she was for the show and how she went on the facebook page for the radio station the show’s going to be at and one person commented “21 pilots? don’t you think thats deceiving? there’s only two of them” and I said “ugh I hate when people say that, they don’t even know the meaning behind the band’s name” so my mom asked what the meaning was and I told her about the play and how that tied into the meaning…while this was happening my mom’s eyes got huge and she started to cry and I got confused as to why. it didn’t make any sense to me so I asked her if she was okay and then she started to tell me a story…

so my mom’s a nurse and has taken care of many many many patients and she obviously can’t remember all of them. She starts to tell me about how a few years ago she was taking care of an elderly man who suffered from severe panic attacks as a result of PTSD. The man was an airplane mechanic for the military in WWII. My mom would sit with him and hold his hand and talk with him through his panic attacks. She learned a lot about him and his past. The man was an airplane mechanic and in charge of assembling airplane parts. Once, he noticed that the parts he received were faulty and told his boss immediately, expecting to have to stop production, however his boss instructed him to still use the parts and assemble the planes. The man was really distraught because as it turns out, the planes he assembled crashed as a result of the faulty parts which resulted in the death of “over twenty pilots” (he would say this a lot))(my mom had heard this story over and over and over again). A few years later the man could no longer take his panic attacks and PTSD and ended up killing himself. My mom had never forgotten this mad and he was actually her favorite patient. She would sit and help him through his panic attacks, even off the clock. His death had always affected my mom deeply and I distantly remember her being really upset over his death. Obviously this isn’t the protagonist of the story, but this man definitely played a part and it affected him deeply.

At first I thought my mom was joking, this couldn’t be, it was too similar. Too unreal to be true. I didn’t even think that All My Sons was based off a true story, but I looked it up and it was a true story. My mom and I started crying and freaking out because it was such a coincidence. This is my favorite band, and a story they were built upon. They helped me save my life and this story is very close to my heart(i have tattoo that expresses the moral of the band very closely tied with the story of All My Sons). This is so unbelievable and warms my heart. All i know now is that I connect with this band more than I ever thought possible. 

Human? Yeah, right

While the fandom at large was basking in the warm sapphic phosphorescence of Pearl’s unbridled gayness, I have spent the last 24 hours fixating on a number of weird mysteries surrounding Pearl’s nameless new girlfriend.

Now, it’s not exactly a spoiler to say this lady looks like rose, but I don’t think we as a fandom have addressed just how fucking weird this is. Mystery girl isn’t just tall, she’s about as tall as Rose was. Rose herself was pegged as being around 10 feet tall (by comparison, the tallest human on record was only 8′11″). 

In other words, Mystery Girl is taller than any human alive. Now, I was willing to brush this off, but thats only the start of the weirdness. Remember the discussion about her Pink hair and how Steven speculated that she dyed it? As plausible as it sounded, that claim was never actually confirmed. When Pearl actually asked her, she completely deflected the question and asked Pearl to tell her instead. And when Pearl said she was a hologram, what did mystery girl say?

“I know how that is”

Okay, these clearly aren’t just a bunch of circumstantial similarities. Something smells fucking icthyan in here willing to suggest that this mystery girl is ANOTHER Rose Quartz.

Yes, I just said there was a second Rose Quartz in play, and it’s not as crazy as it sounds. A lot of people assume Rose was some sort of unique gem, but Bismuth stated pretty damn clearly this was not the case

Bismuth: Just another Quartz soldier, made right here in the dirt, but she was different. And she was different because she decided to be.

There are other Roses out there, or at least there were before the rebellion. I don’t doubt that after Rose became the face of the rebellion the Diamonds would have gotten rid of any imitators, and when that happened the only option a non-rebel Rose Quartz would have would be to go into hiding among the local population, to take a human name and wear human clothing.

The only other way we could see another Rose Quartz is if they were a fugitive like her. A gem hiding in plain sight, a twist so huge that the crew can’t even let her speak if they want to preserve it, lest people notice that she has the same voice actress as an identical gem. What a coincidence then that our Mystery Girl doesn’t speak in the episode all about her

i hope tyler knows how important he is. his art and what he’s doing for so many people. what he started in his basement when he was seventeen in an attempt to save himself has saved so many people—it’s really incredible what him and josh are bringing into the world through their music. it blows my mind when people think that art is trivial, or unimportant, or just about being able to make things that look or sound nice. because what they’re doing with their music and their band is real art. the people they’re saving and giving hope to through nothing but a few words and melodies strung together, that’s art. they’re proving to the hopeless that they aren’t alone in their struggles, and that they genuinely understand what they’re going through. they’re connecting to the people who need connections the most with their music. and i just hope that when tyler questions whether or not the songs he’s writing are good enough or worthwhile, that he knows how important he and his art is to so many people. 

I can’t believe we all live beside the fact that Joji started the harlem shake, like he did it, he started a trend all around the world, in 100 years people will look at pop culture histoy books and his name is going to be there, like can you imagine your grandchildren doing an essay about 2013 and they look through his videos and they actually like it and they’re like “I was born in the wrong generation” thats just how he’s going to be remembered.

Ransom knew first

so hear me out: Jack loves tegan and sara. This hopeless canadian country fool actually knows one pop-ish group and its the canadian icons tegan and sara. I mean think about how much it impacted him when they came out, and how much he connected to their music. In the present day, he listens to “100x” on repeat for hours whenever he starts to think about kent and his overdose. he can’t listen to “white knuckles” without thinking of the juniors. When he was younger “northshore” was his strength and conditioning song. looking back on it, he’s glad thats not his song anymore. But it doesn’t change the fact that he really loves tegan and sara because he connect to literally every song.

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: 2016. 2000 AND FUCKING 16. 2015 was like THE BEST YEAR in pop punk since 2005. All the up and coming bands released new music and a couple older ones like All Time Low and Mayday Parade joined in too and I didn't think any year could be better. BUT OH HOW I WAS WRONG because EVERY BAND FROM 2000 IS RELEASING NEW MUSIC IN 2016. NEW BLINK. NEW RELIENT K. NEW SUM 41. NEW ALL AMERICAN REJECTS. NEW GOOD CHARLOTTE. NEW STARTING LINE. NEW SIMPLE PLAN. AND THATS JUST WHATS ALREADY BEEN ANNOUNCED. HOW COULD I POSSIBLY BE FINE RIGHT NOW IM ABOUT TO EXPLODE IM SO EXCITED

So I see these “Gentle Reminders” on my dash and I really like them. But it got me thinking: I should start “Aggressive Reminders”

HEY YOU.
YEAH, YOU READING THIS.
YOU’RE RAD AS FUCK.
AND ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TELL YOU OTHERWISE
IS A PUSSY-ASS BITCH
THEY DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT YOUR LIFE OR HOW FUCKING RAD YOU ARE
SO GO OUT THERE AND SHOW EVERYONE HOW FUCKING. RAD. YOU ARE!

I think it could be a hit.

So…. this is a journey in the first part of the game, in comic strip form :D (how surpising)

“how did you leave your house w/out your glasses???” listen buddy my eyesight starts to get blurry about 15 meters away from me and idk what kinda house you live in but nothing is more than 5 meters away from me where I live, so I’m fine making breakfast and stuff cos Ive fooled myself into forgetting I can’t see properly, it’s only when I go outside and think ‘what tf am I lookin @ here’ that I remember

Just gotta say that it sort of bothers me how everyone talks about and writes about and draws about Paul as the more submissive person in his relationship with john just because paul has more feminine physical features and presence. Like let’s not push heteronormativity on them okay? I’m so tired of it. Logically, john would be the more submissive one because he had a fear of abandonment, was very much depressed throughout the span of the beatles and was an extremely unstable person (which is all telltale signs of bpd but that’s another story for another time). Paul has always been more of an optimist, and is way more stable. John would be more dependent on paul to balance out his mental and emotional shortcomings that way. Plus paul is known to have an issue with always needing to be in control. And based on john’s relationship with yoko, he thrived when he was under someone else’s control. So paul would’ve played the role of the provider, and the “rescuer” in their relationship, while john would’ve played the role of the receiver and the “rescued”. Their relationship dynamic (and anybody’s really) has less to do with (the traditional, patriarchal view of) feminine vs (the traditional, patriarchal view of) masculine and more to do with personality.

How my psych eval went:

Me: *misses my exit because I was thinking about my story*

*leaves critical paperwork in the waiting room*

*starts 16 unrelated conversations, has to be asked to ‘please be boring’ so we can get through everything*

*has to ask for a rating scale to be written down so I can remember it*

*looks up from diagnostic evaluation to make a joke about forgetting what you’re doing midway through, forgets what I was doing, has to re-read the instructions*

Them:  Well you’re not wrong about the ADHD, that’s for sure.

snarkytoon  asked:

Omg you're so right, sorry that was wayyy too general vague... I didnt realize how much that would actually be whoops, What about Each of the burners/Chuck relationships?

Okay!  Well I am Real Tired so this is going to meander and ramble kinda but I WILL DO MY BEST.  Apologies in advance, you didn’t give a specific question RE: the couples in question so I’m just gonna………talk……

Let’s start with the obvious one.

okay but i love this season of b99 so much and i think it’s because of how expressive holt is. like, the team as a whole has been through so much, but it’s like florida really hit him how much the team cares and he’s started to open up, let more of his emotions show through rather than the stoic deadpan personality he had at the start of the series

i mean, at one point the squad couldnt tell if he was happy or mad and he was furious at the Jimmy Jab games and now, now holt giggles at marshmallows and cheers when jack slides across the bullpen and i just love him and love how his character is developing into this person and now we understand why all of his friends say he’s hilarious

Talking about, you know, my mental state and such…. I think it kinda sucks that my mom, being a professional psychologist, is not able to tell that her kid has… something. 

ADHD or autism, is clear that I am not exactly neurotypical and its something that has been shown since I was a kid, thats why I always was the “weird” one at school and why I never had good notes since second grade (when we started learning how to multiply).

Mom always says that my troubles are all because I am lazy and i don’t care, but reading all of this actually gives me a reason to ton of my troubles, the constant chewing, lot of insults I’ve got as a kid and I get now, the lack of concentration, my constant noises, my stimming, my learning issues, me trying constantly to use the same clothing, my sensitivity to smells, how much I dislike loud noises, my sensory overloads… and thats just naming a few…

so i’ve been thinking about that Jaune post i reblogged earlier and. i really wanna go in depth with how much better and MORE Pyrrha living but Jaune dying would have been. (under the cut bc holy shit this got long)
