I don't think anyone should respect Abby because she truly has never earned that respect. BUT the Quinn's are essentially saying that they have posted nothing but civil comments and questions about Abby regarding the show. I was pointing out that it's not entirely true. They weren't bashing her, but they have been shading her a lot.

Abby deserves every ounce of shading she gets. And lucky for her It’ll be super shady inside her jail cell too

Prompt: Bumblebee.

Harry’s never been much of a talker, his slow drawl preventing him from getting much out before he gets distracted anyway but it’s like the very first time he sees her, any words he’d dreamt of saying had been snatched from his throat.

MARS - Episode 1 

Re-watching this again before the second episode. 

I haven’t read the manga, I know little about the story, essentially watching this with no expectations. Therefore, I know nothing about how the characters should look or act, but I do know about Fujigaya’s abilities since watching him over the years in various roles - and some I have liked, others not so much. As for Kubota well he can do no wrong (jk). Will I  keep watching this? probably the answer is yes even though this is a genre I don’t particularly care about.

 I need to watch more episodes before I give an honest answer. 

Also this is third drama in a row that Maeda Goki and Kubota have co-stared in the same project. Flowers for Algernon, Death Note and now MARS.

tbh is grah//amfield REALLY even platonic in canon?? to me its always seemed more like... warren Leave My Ass Olone

this will probably lose me a follower or two but honestly warren seems like he’d be one of those guys on okcupid who would send you ‘hi :)’ at 6:46 PM and then when you don’t reply immediately sends ‘fine, ignore me, you look like a stuck up bitch anyway’ at 6:47 PM

i like him better when he’s someone who starts to grow the fuck up after being rejected and supports max anyway without expecting something in return because if you choose to “”“romance”“” him in the game he basically learns nothing and is essentially rewarded for creepy behavior towards max and shitty treatment of brooke. also, the ship is REALLY boring, and i’d still think that even if he weren’t a boundary-crossing stain on the bottom of max’s shoe.

Alex And Ani

Love is one of the most powerful things, in our known world.  Not only as an emotion, but what that can lead to - passion, inspiration, rebellion.  Love can leave the most logical and resolute men and women stumbling in the ground, concussed by feelings and thoughts that overwhelm their own intuition.  Love has saved strangers, built monuments and named the constellations.

When I was still living in Florida, my girlfriend, Keiko, was in the same city as me.  At the time neither of us realized how much we truly cared about each other.  We had both been friends for years and had become closer with each other than with anyone else.  So, when she moved back to South Florida, before moving to New York, I felt the powers of love.  I would find myself driving three hours every couple days, just to spend time with her.  I’d stay with her family and show up with nothing more than a backpack filled with essentials and crash for a couple days. We’d spend every minute together and when I would have to leave to go to work, I’d still find myself hanging on and delaying that three hour drive as long as I could.

It’s only natural to remind the ones you love how you feel on certain benchmark days.  It’s a big deal to make it through your first month as a couple, and to celebrate your first Thanksgiving or Christmas with someone you love.  And to make it around to Valentine’s day, it always feels like a competition against the world to do better than the next guy.  

I’ve partnered up with ALEX AND ANI this Valentine’s Day to share some of my favorite pieces from their collection and why it’s more than just an accessory.

I was asked to choose some pieces that really stood out to me, that I could give to Keiko.  To this day, I’ll never say I truly know what she wants or likes - I think that’s the way it is for a lot of guys.  But the spirit of Valentine’s Day is for all of us, and It’s about finding that piece of jewelry, or that gift, that speaks to You, for your partner.  

The ALEX AND ANI collection is wonderful, to me, because of the quality and the thoughtfulness that went into it.  Everything is American made, with a price point that won’t break your bank.  The collection was also based with varying styles in mind, with more classic items that are perfect for the professional woman, and then their, more whimsical pieces that can be worn by a woman with an edge.  

I really loved the Rose Quartz Chain Station necklace, for its beauty in simplicity, and the Heart and Arrow Ring Wraps for their playfulness.  The Love Set of 3 bangles was also a great addition, since I felt that Keiko could wear it anywhere, with almost any outfit.

There is a lot of thought that goes into Valentine’s Day.  I think this collection is a great way to simplify things and get something your partner will love.  For everything else, good luck!

Best,
Bobby

How do you feel about existentialism and nihilism? I respect you a lot and I'm really intrigued by your opinions.

well both theories approach the same issue, aka the meaning of life.  while i agree with both principles in the respect that yeah, life has no intrinsic meaning b/c god didn’t put us on earth and the universe doesn’t care about your goals, i think that the nihilistic approach is overly defeatist.  human beings are subjective creatures, so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t make your own subjective meaning; it’s your life and you’ve only got one.  you’re living it on earth as a human being no matter what, and to essentially give up because “nothing matters” is a cop-out. 

I was checking out at Walmart and some dude was panhandling for free shit. He came up to my cart and was like “hey man can I bother you to b-” and then looked at my cart, which had nothing but bare essentials (bread, rice, chips, and soda) in it. He just kinda looked at me and went “never mind man” and kept going

I just got burned by a beggar about my financial situation this is a new low for me

anonymous asked:

I have a question!! we know everyone finds out about William in 415.. would we see more William and baby mama in future eps? or with all this drama (kidnapping and such) make baby mama not want oliver around her son?

I would not be surprised if William is taken that Samantha refuses to let Oliver see him. So, Oliver will have lost Felicity and his son… so the lie was essentially for nothing. I could be wrong though. I think Samantha is sticking around so it would be wise of the writers to make her more likable. Allowing Oliver to see William even if he’s kidnapped would be a good way to do that. Maybe even have Samantha try and smooth things over with Felicity.

you've done a lot of fucked up things. i'm not gonna deny that. but if you manage a reset, you can change. everything can change. even if just a little bit. i don't know how the memory ripple effect works in your timeline, but whatever the case, it'll essentially be like nothing ever happened. a cleaned off slate, despite having a few deep marks, so to speak.

I know. That’s one of the things that my twisted little “plan” (Ugh, I feel sick just thinking about it) banks on. With no one around to remember the resets other than me, then maybe, just maybe, things’ll be able to get back to some level of normalcy.

|| Extended Family verse | When Everything Stays

An AU where Gaster never ended up Core’d.

With their friendship retained, Fyne doesn’t lose hope and age/die herself. This also means that the skelebros and Undyne essentially grow up together, becoming friends sooner and nothing hurts.

(Consider Undyne wanting her mother to train her but it’s not to become a royal guard like her, but because ‘I want to protect him, mom’.)

anonymous asked:

Thats a very valid argument, but I'm actually not a religious person so I struggle to see it in such a way. In a circumstance where an unborn child, essentially nothing more than unknowing cells, could destroy a human life, I value the human life more than the "life" of the foetus. There are a lot of reasons to abort, and I would hate to take the option away from someone. : (

Let’s break this one down a bit.

To start, although I view it from a Biblical worldview, it is, by no means, exclusive to that. This doesn’t just affect Christians, it affects everyone. And, although I strongly believe that a nation drifting away from Christ is the primary cause of such a polar mindset, sanctity of life is not singular to any one religion.

You referred to the unborn child as “nothing more than unknowing cells”. That’s a bit of a broad and undefined term. While not all parts of their memory may be fully developed, they are still very much aware of pain within the stages where abortion is considered legal. In regards to memory and “knowing” a young infant out of womb does not possess the cognitive capabilities of a fully grown adult. No one remembers their first step or word as a child, but does that mean at a year of age that child should be able to be killed? Ended? Aborted? Certainly not! The rate of development is irrelevant, life is sacred at EVERY stage, in every age.

Another comment was that you “value the human life more than the ‘life’ of the fetus”. I cannot stress this enough: the unborn child is every bit as human as the mother bearing it and it is SO VERY MUCH alive! That tiny baby’s heart is beating, it’s fingers are curling, it’s growing bigger by the day and it is ALIVE! From the moment of conception - the very MOMENT! - that is a human being just as much alive as you or I.

The audacity and vanity that I should call myself more valuable than another life. Am I more important than that toddler on the playground? Am I better than the elderly man walking down the street? Can I say my life is worth saving more than that of my neighbor? My brother? My mother? Certainly not! It is not mine to choose who is to live and who is to die.

Now, I understand that, in part, you may be referencing cases where the mother is at risk. HOWEVER. It is very important to understand that that is a sliver of a percentage and, in those rare cases, a doctor will do everything to save both the child and the mother. It is never necessary to kill the child, and, that said, abortions themselves often do a significant amount of harm to a women’s reproductive system.

There may be a lot of reasons to abort, but none of them - NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM - withstand the truth that life is precious and ending it is wrong.

I really appreciate you talking about this with me, it is an extremely important topic and imperative that one know where they stand :)

Difference between book Izzy and show Izzy?

Oh my gosh there are so many, some are great, some are not-so-great

Book Izzy is jaded and mean and selfish (at least in the beginning, and especially towards Clary) for reasons book readers know that they aren’t including in the TV show. She kicks ass and breaks hearts and doesn’t care about people who she doesn’t think are worth her time. (again, this is early Izzy. later book Izzy is still hard and selfish and scary, but she is also openly adoring of her brothers and she loves Clary and Simon and her friends.)

TV Izzy is kinder than book Izzy. She openly welcomes Clary into the shadow world and encourages her and becomes her friend. She’s also seen primarily as a sex figure (I mean, kind of. She still kicks ass but for some reason literally every outfit she wears is either a really short dress or a bra and pants, essentially. Which, there’s nothing wrong with that for a human, but Izzy is a shadowhunter like everyone else, she needs gear too.)

For the most part, Izzy is still the kickass girl we know and love from the (later) books who uses her whip in an incredibly amazing way, cares about her family more than anything, and even rolls her eyes at mundanes. She’s just a softer, kinder version of that. And for her relationship with Clary (and her likability as a character) it’s a good thing. Mostly.

Do you stay skinny because you drink coffee?

Lol seriously ? I’ve only had 3 coffees this week - and normally I don’t drink any 😂 I stay “skinny” because I eat PROPERLY and focus my diet around whole food, plant CARBS, drink enough water, get (mostly) 8 hours sleep each night and don’t sit on my bum all day doing nothing. So essentially - LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. Regularly drinking coffee is not going to “keep you skinny”, it’s just going to fuck up your metabolism and mess with your energy levels. JUST LIKE ANY OTHER STIMULANT. Coffee is NOT a health food.
