things that i learned doing this:

I’m the person you previously sent you an ask about the math thing and I have a follow up question: Are there any architecture related books that I could read to increase my knowledge of the subject while also being somewhat light (as I said, I’m still doing my GCSE’s), some info I might need before I apply for uni?

I would do some research on what the tests include, first step is to pass them, and then I would try to learn more about Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry, Maybe there are some courses you can take, books you can learn or even webpages that could help. I wish I had a specific path to take, so I could recommend it to you, but I don’t.

I’m glad tumblr is just now learning, a year after the election, that the FCC chair is an unelected position appointed by the president. Ajit Pai was appointed specifically because he’s an anti-net neutrality zealot. The whole FCC comment thing is a courtesy mostly meant to placate you, it is in no way legally binding. I’m so angry at everyone saying “what can we do.” The time to stop this was November 8th, 2016. Most things in the executive branch are done completely without public input, you make your voice heard on election day. It would have been great if you had listened to everyone trying to tell you what’s at stake a year ago.

The most difficult thing is, the Host not only has to learn how to deal with Anti, he also has to do it in a way that Anti doesn't glitch out of nervousness, cuz that'll hurt him

The Host takes a deep breath and repositions himself in his armchair. “Anti, when you were in that other place and you learned about what happened to the others, how did it make you feel?”

Anti frowns and wonders if this is somehow the Host’s way of avoiding his question. “I felt kinda cold, like I was empty and cold.”

Host nods. “I want to save the others from feeling that if I can, and I’m afraid of failing them. I’m afraid of having all these talents but never finding a happy ending to this story. I’m afraid fading a failure, if you must know!” He gets up and stalks off out of the lamplight.

Anti glitches when the Host yells and then yelps in pain. The Host turns back to him. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to…”

Anti shifts uncomfortably. “‘s okay. Not the first time I’ve been shot ya know.”

Host smirks. “Yes, I imagine it’s not.”

“You stopped doing that third person thing,” Anti points out, and the Host makes a face. Anti grins. “I’ll leave ya alone. The Doc likes ya at least, so I’ll keep my pesterin’ to a minimum.”

“Thank you,” Host says with a laugh. “Now, will you please let me help you?”

Anti shrugs. “I suppose.”

Host seems to jump a little in surprise. “Really?” He picks up his cane. “Alright then, see that radio there on the desk?”

Anti nods and grabs the portable radio. “What’s it do?”

Host smirks. “Turn it on.”

Anti switches it on and listens as it comes to life. A movement in the corner of his vision catches his eyes, and Anti glitches again when he realizes it’s another one of the triangles.

“Now, now, steady,” Host says softly. “You control it, not the other way around. Who ever heard of a glitch that’s afraid of triangles anyway?”

Anti nods, his face growing hard and determined. “Now what?”

Africa - Mike x Reader

A/N again, another one that wasn’t requested but inspo taken from Nancy teaching Dustin how to dance, i know snow ball is such a typical theme for imagines but i wanted to put a different twist on it, its also super short which i apologise for xx
Request


Another campaign finished, and you and Mike were the only ones left in the Wheeler’s basement. After a campaign like that, it’ll be the only thing Mike talks about for weeks, to anyone that’ll listen. However, this time, he’s unusually quiet.
“What’s on your mind? After a campaign like that you’ll usually crazy hyper…” you say quietly as you help him pack up
“Oh…just thinking about..uhh..the snow ball…” he says, unsure if he can talk to you about it
“Well…what about it?”
“Im not sure if I want to go, I can’t dance…what if the girl I dance with ditches me for someone better…what if I don’t look right…” Mike trails off into a list off what if’s
You notice a record player in the corner and go over, rummaging for the closest thing you can find to a love song
“I can help you dance…my older brother was helping my learn the other day” you suggest as you put the record on, Africa by Toto, then turning to Mike, offering you hand.
He can’t hide his nerves as he slowly puts his arms around your waist, swallowing slightly, and you place your arms around his neck
“So, feel the rhythm, the lyrics, the song in general and slowly move, and pick up as the song does okay?” you say as you slowly start to sway in Mike’s arm, smiling uncontrollably, pulling him slightly closer.
“Am I doing it right?” he whispers
“perfect” you nod 

Subconsciously, you begin to mumble the words and look up into Mike’s eyes
“It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do”
“y/n…” Mike says slowly as you snap out daze
“yes Mike?”
he looked down, plucking up the courage to ask you to the Snow Ball, but something stopped him, he’d leant in instead, kissing you and quickly pulling away blushing like mad
“Wanna go to Snow Ball with me?” he says quietly, looking at his feet and you can’t help but grin, nodding
“It’s a date Wheeler” 

Maybe you’re in your mid-20s, and you’re going through some tough mental health issues, and you’re feeling left out in life. Maybe you sometimes ask yourself if it’s too late for you to heal. To turn everything in your life around.


Some people who are younger than you have it all together. Sticking with your depression seems to make a lot of sense. You’ve learned so late about stuff. Maybe it’s your passion for writing poetry or painting or making music. You’ve learned that you’ve wasted years doing useless things. You’re now living a life filled with regrets, and I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone in feeling this way and that you are never too late to heal.


Everyone has made mistakes. Everyone has wasted years. Everyone has their own regrets. And you and I are late bloomers in passion and in healing. We don’t need to compare our progress to anyone other than ourselves. We are what overcomes us at the present moment. We are not prisoners of our pasts, but we are pioneers of our futures.


So please, let’s not stop writing poems, painting, and making music because this is what we love doing because we’re artists. Each and every single one of us is a revolution in the flesh conquering the tyranny of regret and despair. Each and every single one of us are heroes that make the world a better place through healing ourselves through our art. Yes, we are going through our quarter-life crisis, but that’s not going to stop us from creating and healing while there’s still air in our lungs and blood pumping through our hearts.


We are never too late to heal because we’re just getting started and we’re going to leave this place filled with hope and self-love.

anonymous asked:

a korean journalist said on his twitter that during gangnam style's era, everyone asked him to do interviews and write and psy. and today, with all bts's sucess nobody does that and he hinted it was because of the big 3 influence on the korean media. they really don't want the korean media to talk about anything related to bts. how long are they going to be this stupid? even if they don't talk, they just can't ignore bts, that's impossible.

Isn’t it ridiculous that journalist says that? (tweet)  I find it really ridiculous, although I’m disappointed but not that surprised. Bangtan is out there, achieving things, it’s just happening and they are big. Not acknowledging that is stupid, it’s a big deal for kpop and not just bangtan.  Bighit is doing good job handling everything and supporting the boys. Rather than being petty and using the influence against bangtan they could learn thing or two from bangtan’s success and how to do business.

sup folks! i’m sage, i’m seventeen and i’ve never fucking learned how to make an attractive banner! but, that’s besides the point. i hit 1.7k last night and figured i’d do some cheeky blogrates!! these are aes because i hate being judgy.

What i have learned with Freddie

- I’ve learned to be myself, no matter what others may think. I used to be so worried about other’s opinion about me, about what I would dress like.. I never followed trends, but I was uncomfortable sometimes being myself aware of others “approval/disapproval look”. Now, I walk outside listening to my fave songs in my earplugs and sing out loud and you know what? ‘fuck everybody else’ (Mercury, 1985)

- after that, everything became easier, I feel more loose with things. It is not difficult anymore for me to decide what I want to do. Just go and do it. It should always have been like this

What about you? What have changed in your life since you took Freddie as a role model, or inspiration?

Do you know what is the most valuable but we can do for ourselves? Happiness. We can build it on a daily basis through the choices and actions we make. We can learn from mistakes, we can rise above weights and failures, we can choose to look ahead, we can motivate, we can change. We can do almost anything. And that’s one thing we can use to our advantage. It’s so easy to say “I can not” and be compassionate about the others. When circumstances are not appropriate, we do not do more, we do not find other solutions, we do not seek to break through other roads. We just stand and look impotent. And we are convinced that the thing, that dream is not for us. Give up. And this abandonment makes us unhappy. It takes away the joy of success. Of fulfillment. We rise from falling and we become better. Stronger. More resistant to closed doors. That’s how we are done. Not weak, but strong, victorious. Every day life is learning more, it shows us more. We grow and evolve with every lesson we learn. We are aware that we are stronger when we find ourselves in the force to lift ourselves from the ground, not necessarily when we are at the top or when we are safe. Happiness is not a taboo thing. There is nothing non-existent. Happiness is a small but valuable thing that becomes possible through the things you think, feel and do. There must be a balance in everything. You can not wait to be happy today from tomorrow. But, you can work on building your own happiness. Daily. Step by step. Every moment. And what’s really priceless is that you can choose. No one else decides for you. You are the only one who has this power. If you decide you want to be happy I can not see what could prevent you from being.

Do you know of a good lavender substitute of like the real plant for a broke and closeted witch??? I want to work better with learning about spirits and work on my spirit work and know that lavender is supposed to be good but I am unable to carry any (fun fact while I was typing this I smelled flowers but there’s none in my house and no windows are open 👌🏻)

Sure! Here are. Bunch of different kinds of substitutes! Just keep in mind that different plants etc have different connotations for different people! Each thing has different aspects that can be substitutions for different aspects of lavender.

Plant substitutes:
💜 Sage is commonly found in kitchen spice cabinets! Perfect for cleansing, warding, and protection.
💜 Roses are perfect for love, self love, and can give off the same sense of calm that the smell of lavender does.
💜 Salt is great because it’s so cheap and accessible. It is a cleansing agent and definitely great for protection.
💜 Chamomile is very similar to lavender in the fact that is an antianxiety herb. It is often found in teas, especially for insomniacs.
💜 Mint is in the lavender family, I think. Either way, it is a nice and refreshing herb that I always find to be a great healer like lavender, and a cleansing agent
💜 Lilac definitely acts as a ward against negative energies and spirits in my experience. It’s a fairly common flower, smells great, and is the same colour as lavender.

Crystal substitutes:
💜 Amethyst is the same colour as lavender, and thus has similar colour correspondence, which for me, is intuition, dreams, calmness, and power. It’s an excellent stone for divination, just like lavender.
💜 Rose Quartz for self love, healing, and protection over the heart can mimic the healing aspects of lavender.
💜 Lapis Lazuli for lavender’s aspect of spirit communication.
💜 Sodalite for the same reason as above. I also find sodalite to help with divination, like lavender.
💜 Clear Quartz works like lavender to clear away negative energies, protect the bearer, and is definitely powerful just like lavender.

Colour substitutes:
💜 Purple/Lilac is good for intuition, dreams, psychic enhancement, divination, and power.
💜 Light Pink is excellent for self love, love in general, and healing.
💜 White is awesome for protection, cleansing, and warding.
💜 Soft Blue is a healing colour as well as an intuition booster and connection to spirits.

though i may be a bit late in the spirit of thanksgiving i wish to thank you for answering even my stupidest of questions and expanding my knowledge of tokusatsu

Thank you!  It’s what I really enjoy doing, helping people appreciate and learn about tokusatsu.  I may not always be right (and I actually enjoy being proven wrong and given corrections i.e. my ignorance of the difference between the Andro Melos picture stories and TV series) but I do enjoy sharing the things I know or can speculate on.  

I may not always answer questions quickly because I often have to do some research on the more esoteric ones that I do not have at my immediate memory reach but I do try and answer what I can that I am asked. 

That said, it is always very awesome to be told I’ve helped someone gain a better appreciation for the techniques, stories and concepts of tokusatsu.  One could even say it’s NICE!

Yes, there is an Ultraman Nice, he was a character created for a series of 1 minute commercials for Bandai’s Ultraman toys that aired during 1999 reruns of Ultraman Tiga. He is a hero from the appropriately named planet TOY-1.

Sorry pal, not gonna happen ^^ Also, how do you know what I smell like if you never met me? Learn some grammar before trying to insult somebody. “1000000 vomits”? Come on XD Learn a better insult ^^ Its funny how desperate you all are. Please do keep the insults coming so you can be ignored or roasted again! Borzel, Bekkup, and anything you people who hide behind anonymous cause your scared of getting found out want me to delete is NOT gonna go away. I don’t do “Magic Anons” :P Stop complaining over fictional ships and all that, makes no sense. There is more important things in REAL LIFE you should be complaining about.

tbh, if i see so many ppl throwing shade on other people on here, only to piss them off, i wonder if these ppl have like… something to do with their life besides tumblr. i don’t know, loves, but instead of trying to piss off other people all the time, why don’t you go read a book? listen to music?? cuddle with your pet? go for a walk with your dog? buy some christmas presents? watch some tv?? study for school or uni?? work out? learn a new language? play some computer games? learn how to make gifs on photoshop? do volunteer work?? travel the world?? idk, there’s literally a thousand things you can do that don’t have being rude to another person as main purpose. this is a daily reminder that if your only life purpose has become to act like an asshole towards other people, go offline and do something with your life that isn’t tumblr.

Imam Ali a.s said :

I want to teach you five of those things which deserve your greatest anxiety to acquire them: Have hope only in Allah. Be afraid of nothing but sins. If you do not know a thing never feel ashamed to admit ignorance. If you do not know a thing never hesitate or feel ashamed to learn it. Acquire patience and endurance because their relation with true faith is that of a head to a body, a body is of no use without a head, similarly true faith can be of no use without attributes of resignation, endurance and patience.

Thomas, what do you think the most important thing about raising a child is?

Thomas: The most important thing? Wow. Hm… I guess it’s being open. Sometimes you have your authority because you’re a grown up and know what’s best. But your kids, they’re human too. You made them, but they’re growing up into people of their own. So sometimes, you have to be open to do what they want to do, to follow up on their crazy ideas and to allow them to do things a little different than what you planned. 

And I’m not saying it’s easy, it’s scary to do that. In the end, I want my kids to be safe. But I also want them to be happy and to learn to listen to their own voice. So… There.

This has been in my head for like a week. I like to think that Stan is ridiculously susceptible to genuine compliments, especially ones from his brother.
