This Fourth of July, as you watch fireworks or party or do whatever it is you do, remember our heritage as a country. We live in the greatest country in the world, and think of how blessed you are to live in such a place. People have died for and risked their lives for and cried for and traveled the world for this country. This nation has hosted some of the greatest men and women in all of history, and you should be proud to bear such a legacy.
America has problems. No one can deny that. But as we have in the past, we can fix them, but only if we stand together. We need to stop criticizing the leaders of this nation and instead all pull together to make this country a better place. Instead of protesting against Trump or whoever it is you don’t like, try doing a good deed in your community. This will create a small ripple of hope, of goodwill, and that ripple will spread outward. That’s the true way to create change.
Think of our forefathers, of the sacrifices they made and the blood, sweat, and tears they poured into creating and sustaining this nation for posterity. You are that posterity, the people who came after. They painstakingly made this country for you. Do you realize the incredibleness of that? This country was made for you, and you need to carry on the legacy. Be proud of who you are and what you aspire to do. Make it happen, live your life to the fullest, become the most successful you can be. And remember—
christine had quoted one of mtv’s tweets about halsey and her fans crying over her new music in a church in london saying something like “this is the most halsey thing halsey has done she has out halseyed herself” (which isn’t rude or anything at all???)) and then halsey got so offended over it. she said that Christine was “bullying and attacking kids” and that she was only famous because she makes fun of people.
i think she threw in something about bing bong in her rant too lol. i like both halsey and christine but this argument was so dumb, like how blind do you have to be to take something christine sydelko tweets seriously. i wish halsey hadn’t deleted all her tweets bc this was so stupidly hilarious
Hermione: (to Ron and Harry) Why can’t we just be normal kids and tell an authority figure when something goes wrong for once instead of using over-confidence and bucket-loads of luck to do stupid, life-threatening tasks??
Harry: well the medallion says that’s dumb so we’re not going to do that.
Ant*s embarrass themselves again. The quote they are using to claim Daisy debunks reylo in TLJ was from BEFORE TFA, so she was talking about TFA. On top of that, the quote itself talks the importance of a female character having her own journey told from a female perspective, something everyone agrees with. They are so desperate at this point they are using a rather innocuous old quote, which afterwards Daisy proceeded by liking various reylo things on instagram. OOPS. So much for debunking. LOL
yea im like
they a mess.
and we kno the quote was old and about tfa but even if she said the same thing today it still wouldn’t mean it has to do with what ships will or won’t happen. that’s why it was dumb for them to use that as evidence in the 1st place

Hi there!😃I'd like to know more about your opinion on the "Explorers discover things that were already there" quote! Do you think it somehow refers to self-discovery, like Marvin's sexuality or whatever else a person can learn about themselves? Maybe it's obvious or a dumb question but I still haven't had the time to "sit down and properly analyze" In Trousers, despite loving most of the songs.. What do you think about it?(Also, it's 1 A.M, I don't know if this ask has decent grammar lol sorry)
“The thing about explorers is: they discover things that are already there. Columbus closed his diary and went ashore.”
This quote is just so - important to the musical. Columbus is a constant figure in In Trousers (he is introduced with Marvin being casted in the role of Columbus in high school when he was fourteen, but Columbus is not simply “just a role” and remains a symbol throughout Marvin’s life), and the theme of exploration (see: Set Those Sails) is closely bound to Marvin’s character growth.
The explorers quote is demonstrating Marvin’s self-discovery of his sexuality and identity as a gay man (That quote is immediately followed after Your Lips and Me [Reprise] where it is revealed to the audience that Marvin truly divorced his wife and “flew off with Whizzer Brown” - which seems intentional in that it proves how Marvin has left “the paths retraced” for “new lands to explore”).
And the quote blew my mind in how it perfectly encapsulates Marvin’s struggle with his sexuality. Marvin has always been gay - it’s just taken him so many years to discover and explore that part of himself that’s always been there.
And so “Columbus closed his diary and went ashore” just as Marvin closes that finished part of his life and “goes ashore” into his new life as his more authentic self.
My back is pressed against the door
And I can still taste you in the corners of my mouth
Seeping down and pooling at my feet
Even though I’ve never kissed you before
My brother asks me why I look like that
So I spit out the bottle cap lodged deep in the back of my throat
And tell him I don’t know what he’s talking about
On Sundays, my brother reads the newspapers
And I never understood why he likes to
Because doesn’t he think it’s terrifying that in-the-spur-of-it moments can suddenly be
Flat words pasted on paper soggy from spilled cereal milk and early morning dew
My brother tells me that someone died of cardiac arrest just the other day
And I think to you and wonder if I should just tell you now
And get to hold my palms against yours and memorize every etching
And eat the freckles off of your face, Sunkist soda has suddenly never tasted so good
And bite down on your tender heart, and you tell me you’ve seen too much, dear god, and I’ll absolve the anxiety out of your arteries
Instead, I knock over my Cheerios
And my brother turns to the sports section
I finally get the nerve to pull on the tightest outfit I’ve ever worn in my life
Even tighter than the starched dress I wore for my dance recital when I was 6
And my brother tells me not to be so wasteful
When he sees me chucking half used college ruled paper onto the floor
So I try not to waste my blown out hair that I woke up forty-five minutes earlier just to fix as I turn to you
And spit my infatuation down your throat
And even though you’re apologizing, “I’m sorry, I’m allergic,”
Lord knows that I would rather squeeze my ass into those fucking jeans
Than ever squeeze my pleading heart all over your basketball shorts
And have it soak through your thighs ever again, like a wet dream gone wrong
My brother and I are arm wrestling on the kitchen table
And he notes that my hands have never felt colder and why won’t they stop shaking
And I tell him it’s because I’m trying really hard to win
But that makes me laugh so hard that the salt and pepper shakers quake
Because he doesn’t know that I have never been a victor
That I have never gotten to sink my teeth down into the dollar store medals they give out at elementary school science fairs and suck down on the dinky plastic
That there is something thick cushioning my ego so that it doesn’t bring the rest of my weak bones knocking together and collapsing from underneath me with it
So thick that it oozes past and into my lungs and through the backs of my eyes like
I have been crying honey
It is inevitable that I will start to wonder if she has ever tackled you down before and kissed your veins and I didn’t know you were soft until I realized she was the softness to you
Mercy, mercy, mercy, please stop, but oh, god, you never really want her to stop, do you
My brother slams my arm down on the wood
And says that I’m getting stronger, damn near well, I could beat him anytime soon, don’t you mind,
And he asks would I like to try again, don’t worry it’s left side this time
So I say maybe later, but fair warning, it isn’t so easy to soothe such strained muscles
I wonder if this inflammation will ever go away, my brother’s majoring in medicine so maybe he’ll know
they call her mila i call her camz mine is lauren Miss you Camzzi I LOVE YOU CAMZZZZ YAS BOOBOO is ignoring me so maybe if I tweet her she’ll notice me and luv me..HI CAMZ! wow :) ur :) so :) funny :) i :) could :) annihilate :) you :) we are so dumb wow you are such a beautiful mountain goat it’s Camren yo #LaurenIsOurPrincess My pink princess no but really she wants Camila Bah Felicia lol gooo camren lol (((ps: dinah que tweetou
