God same. That guy deserves some happiness seriously. I am so protective of him. Give him someone who can take care of him while he gets exhausted taking care of others. Someone to go back home to and talk about how big a pain in the arse Sherlock was in a case today or while about how people keep pushing cases to him that’s not his department.

Yes I still talk about Next To Normal

Seriously How Could I Ever Forget? is the strongest piece of theatre I’ve ever seen, and even on a shaky video it’s really… something, something so strong, I don’t know how to describe it!!

I remember I was sitting in the dark of the theater and the scene brought me into the memories they were singing… I remember, in reality what I was seeing was two actors singing, but I remember I visually saw the young mother and father holding their baby and rush to the hospital and… 

And I really realized wow, that’s what a live theatre can do.

This was a nice live stream. ^_^

It’s seriously super nice to just sit down and hang out with Seán for a few hours and listening to him answer questions and talk about things.  Like for example, I loved hearing him talk about how Junkrat became his favorite Overwatch character. When he said “he’s like me” it reminded me of one of the reasons why Mei is my favorite Overwatch character. I relate a lot to Mei in certain ways and see a lot of myself in her. xD So it’s interesting to me that we have that in common about how we see our favorite characters in that game. I don’t know I just really like these chill q and a live streams. :) 

Also Seán, ( @therealjacksepticeye
if you see this post I have something I want to say to you about your upload schedule change for July. I haven’t really said anything about this yet because I didn’t really know enough about the situation until you talked about it during this live stream. I know that it sucks because you’ve stayed consistent for so long and your work ethic really matters to you and very proud of yourself for staying this consistent for this long and it might just feel like life is getting in the way of that. Plus you also kind of have this fear that people will leave if you just stopped uploading two videos a day. But honestly I think this is just another hurdle to tackle as a Youtuber. You knew that you would have to eventually have to break or change your upload schedule at some point. If you can’t make 2 videos a day because you just don’t have time anymore then you need to accept that you can’t because you can never fully predict life and what’s going to happen in it or how much time you’ll have. I think you need to let yourself know and realize that it’s okay to take a step back and have more moments to yourself or to experience and live those moments outside of Youtube. Plus life is just opening up for you and you’ll lucky enough to have amazing opportunities being given to you and you need to let yourself experience those opportunities because what you learn from those experiences also shape who you are as a person. I know being a youtuber and the community means a great deal to you but you’re not a video making machine. You’re a human being and you need to try to stop being afraid of breaking the consistency because there’s so much more to your life, to you and to who you are then just Youtube. You need to let yourself step back sometimes and to let yourself explore and experience those opportunities that are being given to you. I and most of the people in the community just want to see you be happy and to see the person that we’ve gotten to know through these videos and who we consider a friend to go out there and make the most out of his life and show the world what he’s got to offer. The community is not going to leave you just because you’re not going to be here twice a day, they’ll still be here when you come back. You’ve impacted so many people’s lives and you’ve left your mark on them just by being who you are and giving them a little more positivity in the day and that influence has shaped who they are as people and how they look at life and the things in it. Or at least that’s what you’ve done for me. I’m not going to leave you if you break away from your consistency Seán, I’ll still be here when you come back because you already do right by me. I understand that life keeps going no matter who we are and what our situations and circumstances are. You have a life outside of Youtube and you need to let yourself live it, even if that means you change your consistency and upload less content. I’m sure that you know all of this and you might already realize this but I still wanted to say all of this to you and try my best to reassure those fears of yours. :) 
Whatever life throws at you Seán I know you’ll try your hardest to appreciate every good moment in it and learn from every bad moment too. Just keep being you dude and keep learning and changing from your experiences. Cause you have so much to offer the world by just being who you genuinely are. ^_^

Ahh I got so many messages about the Parent-Teacher Meeting! I’m so glad that you guys liked it so much! I seriously got like 7 messages! Writing that was so fun sooo …. 

I think that I’m going to do a series of this with different characters (kind of like the few Wisdom Teeth scenarios). Sometimes I don’t know how I would make a continuation of a fic, but I have other ideas for other Parent-Teacher Meeting with both the BnHA and the HQ!! characters.

What do you guys think? Are you cool with that instead of a continuation?

Headcanon that Lea was way into conspiracies as a kid. Kind of like Riku but more in the they’re-keeping-secrets-from-us way. 

“Haven’t you ever noticed how small this place is?“

“Scrooge is literally the only person like that. He’s a duck, Isa. He’s a duck. Isa listen to me.” 

“Where did that blonde kid come from?? Where is he???” 

“I’m telling you that Xehanort guy was not here before. And now people are going missing.”

“You ever notice how suspicious Braig is??”

“Isn’t is odd that Ansem got ‘sick’ all of a sudden.”

“I’m telling you, they’re doing something weird at the castle.”

“Seriously, this is freaky. We need to talk to someone. We need to see what’s going on.”

Yugioh Arc V Final

Main reasons why I liked so much Yugioh arc finale

  • Yuya vs Reiji and the new dragons
  • Reira laugh is sooo cute
  • Yuya’s counterparts cheering him
  • REIJI LAUGH-Seriously, why nobody talks about this precious child laughing????
  • The fucking music OMG
  • Zarc’s spirit is happy too??

Also I think that people who don’t like how it ends, it’s because they don’t understand the message, I guess? For me, it was like a hope message. In the end, even if Yuya’s counterparts and the girls don’t have a real body, and Reira reborn as a baby. They think, that one day they can find a solution. They fought with Zarc and his giant dragon, and defeat him! Then, why can’t be hope for the others too? For me, it was the perfect ending

anonymous asked:

why the fuck does it matter if her foundation is 'ashy'? do you seriously have nothing better to do that sit around judging people's foundation...?

Lol yikes. Me pointing out that her foundation is ashy isn’t me sitting around judging people. It matters because she has a huge following and gets paid to recommend products. So when she has always talked about (and prided herself) how to match foundation but now isn’t, really makes me question if she’s doing things for money. If she is in fact using bad products because she wants to be on the good side of brands just makes me wonder. Not once did I say her makeup looks bad.

in August 2016; 19 year old Austin Harrouff stabbed 59 year old John Stevens and 53 year old Michelle Mishcon to death. when neighbor Jeffrey Fisher tried to intervene by calling 911, Harrouff seriously injured him by stabbing him at least 5 times. When police arrived they found Harrouff biting John Stevens’ face and abdomen, he then spit bits of human flesh from his mouth as police tried to apprehend him.

in recent phone records he tells his parents that although he is “doing good” his life behind bars is “bored and lonely” he also said how he heard guards talking about him saying he is a “monster” - Austin said “it just sucks, I just want to be a normal kid again”

Real Talk

Sasha wasn’t my first choice, and I may not have liked how the finale went down, but I get it. Sasha is a wonderful reigning queen to have during the first year of the “wtf America why?” administration. She’s also talented, and I think the show made it seem like she just said she was and I wish we could have seen more of her brainy side played seriously. In other circumstances, with zero lip syncs and consistent high placement, I think I would have found nothing wrong with her winning other than I live for Trinity and wanted her to win.

Also the finale kind of had to be different. The move to VH1 messed up the whole finale at DragCon thing, and there has been a lot of talk about how Drag Race is getting predictable and stale. Until the tea was spilled about the finale taping, people were bitching about how obvious it was that Shea was going to win. This all on top of a trend of queens just not trying during lip syncs this season Ru needed to mix things up and send the Season 10 girls a message about how she’s not having this shit LSFYL thing become a trend.

There is a sort of little motivation to win hanging around a lot of the queens this season, and to a lesser extent season 8 as well. Like as long as they act congenital and do decently a queen is likely going to get fans and bookings no matter the placement, and it’s right. Katya ending up way more popular than Violet really highlighted that fact. Both 8 and 9 lacked the messy personalities in comparison to earlier seasons, and it really does feel like less of a competition when you get the sense people showed up but are mostly marketing and not competing. I think Mama Ru wants to light a fire under these girl’s asses coming into season 10, especially since that’s filming very soon if I remember correctly.

Basically, what I’m saying is I love Sasha and think she’ll be a great addition to the winner’s circle even if I don’t think how she got there was 100% fair. Even though I didn’t like the new finale format, I do appreciate the effort to keep us guessing and be less complacent about the show. Also I’m trying to be fair and rational to Sasha even though I think Trinity was robbed to the Andromeda Galaxy and back. I’m super biased though, so don’t listen to me about that.

Also this crowning and finale was still better than how All Stars 2 ended.

SNK Character Song Series 06: Levi (Image song & monologue translations)

Heeeyyy, Tumblr! Long time, no see :’) Did y'all enjoy SNK Season 2?

Levi and Erwin’s image song CDs were just released and I enjoyed listening to them a lot! ♡ So, I decided to pop back in for a bit and take on a new translation endeavor, something I haven’t really done in a while.

First up, this post is Levi’s image song and monologue! For the song, I included the original Japanese as well as romaji for karaoke purposes, if you’re so inclined ;) I also made a transcript of the monologue in the original Japanese, which you can read here (feel free to use it to translate into other languages.)

This should be obvious but keep in mind these are spoilers for the song & monologue, in case you wanted to experience them for yourself first. I definitely encourage supporting the official release & ordering the CDs if you haven’t already ♡

I’m also nearly finished with my translation of Erwin’s song and monologue as well, I’ll update this post with a link once it’s done ♡

SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN CHARACTER SONG SERIES 06: Levi

“Dark Side Of The Moon” (Vocals by Hiroshi Kamiya)

Side note: the melody for Levi’s song is based on the previously released SNK single, Reluctant Heroes.

Japanese Version

こんな世界を今
逆さにして振ってみても
確かなことひとつ
出てきやしねぇ¹だろう?

壁の外は地獄
中は欺瞞溢れてる
それも併せ呑んで
任務を果たすだけ

感情流され死神喰われるか
足りない頭を回してみるか

※光当たらぬ月の裏
突き進むためには
もっと速く時には
躊躇なき非情さを
間違いじゃないやりたきゃやれ
ここに答えなんてない
ただ後悔残さぬ
自らの決断を

ここで生き抜くなら
言葉でする教育より
痛みの記憶説く
教訓が必要だろう?

犠牲も危険も避けては
成果など
得られぬものだと
腹を括れよ

隠されている月の裏
いつか暴くために
乱されるな喚くな
状況を見極めろ
結果がなきゃ正解もない
だから最後だけは
ただ後悔残さぬ
自らの生き方を

背後で散った勇敢な兵士たちが
遺した想い力を与える
必ずいつの日にか目障りな
壁も壊し
自由になる為この命捧ぐ

English Translation

This kind of world now
Even if we try shaking it upside down
There isn’t one thing that comes out
Which is certain, is there?

Outside the walls, it is hell
Inside, it is brimming with deceit
What’s more, we have to swallow it down
We can only fulfill our duty

Will we lose control of emotion and be consumed by a god of death?
Or will we try to use our dim-witted heads?

The dark side of the moon, untouched by light
For the sake of pushing forward
We have to be faster and at times
Be heartless without hesitation
It’s not a mistake if it’s what you want to do, so do it
There are no right answers here
Just being without regrets
Is my own decision

If were to I survive here
Rather than education with words
Isn’t persuasion by memories of pain
An essential lesson?

To avert sacrifice as well as danger
Things like results
Cannot be obtained
Steel yourself for it

The dark side of the moon is concealed
For the sake of someday being revealed
Do not get agitated, do not scream
Be certain of the circumstances
Without results, there are no right answers
Therefore only in the end
Just being without regrets
Is my way of living

Brave soldiers who died noble deaths² before us
The hopes they left behind give us power
Without fail, one of these days
We will demolish the obstructive walls as well
For the sake of freedom, we devote this life

Translation notes:

¹ It appears that Levi’s gruff style of speaking is present even in the lyrics of his song. The standard form of the verb here would be detekiyashinai (出てきやしない).
² The verb in the original Japanese, chiru/散る (or in this case, the past tense form chitta/散った) in the literal sense means “to fall” (in the context of leaves or blossoms from a tree). However, it also has the figurative meaning of “to die a noble death”. Even though we also say “fallen soldiers” in English, I worried that translating the lyric as, “fallen before us” or “fallen behind us” could both be misinterpreted, I decided to go with the more figurative meaning;;

Levi Monologue English Translation

Seriously now, I’ve had enough of this. This world is perpetual shit, and humanity is still toothless prey.

Those ugly titans are always going to take a bite out of us, and so we die a meaningless death.

Humanity is powerless.

When we won against the titans for the first time, the time when we sealed the wall in Trost district with a boulder, we could do it because of Eren’s power– a titan’s power.

The weak ones die quickly. How much power they use up doesn’t matter.

Eventually all of humanity, every single person will end up in the stinking maw of a titan, and while we experience the worst feeling there is, perhaps our miserable lives will end.

I realized it a few years ago. The stench of the gutters fills the inside of these walls. It’s been like this for over 100 years. It’s the way things are now.

Because I’ve had to breathe in this foul air ever since I was born, because I had no choice but to live crawling around in piles of trash, I thought that it was normal.

But when I went outside the walls for the first time, I realized how much I didn’t know about anything. It hit home for me, how much I had hated it.

The world outside the walls was like hell with titans wandering around, but the air I breathed there was completely different from the one inside the walls.

I realized, out there is what freedom is.

Freedom is something that absolutely cannot be obtained within the walls.

So I made a choice. I will continue to kill all of the titans.

If you want to confront the titans, information is never enough. So in order to survive, I learned how to live.

Quick action and callous decisions by assuming the worst is a necessary endeavor.

A moment’s hesitation, surrendering yourself to emotions, and you will be nothing but Titan bait.

If you don’t want to die, you have to always continue to keep this in mind.

And small choices will accumulate.

That is the way of living I have learned.

Risking no danger, making no sacrifices– there is no such easy discussion.

Even if there was, it’s all make-believe.

So far, I have lost numerous subordinates.

Whether my choice was correct at those times, I do not know. It’s always been like that.

Even if I believe in my own power, even if I believe in my comrades whom I fully trust, none of us will know the outcome.

Afterward, all that’s left is reality.

In that case, What can I do except make a desperate effort?

What can I do except doggedly press on?

If I have time to think about the bygone past, like if I were to have made a different choice back then, I will kill as many titans as possible within my power.

In that time, in that moment, a sudden, ridiculously strong power boils up from inside my body, and then I know what to do.

When that moment comes, I can no longer go back to my old self.

With these blood-stained hands, I accept my new self, I steel myself, and I only do what I must.

Was I correct? Or did I make a mistake? That’s the sort of thing no one knows, so it’s not worth worrying about.

All you can do is keep your mouth shut and make a choice without regrets.

Not understanding things about this world is true for everyone.

So I choose the guy whom I want to put my faith in.

Erwin is like that, too. No one knows what he is really thinking deep down.

But I trust his judgement.

He may be inviting the worst outcome, but he’s not afraid of that, he is able to choose something. That’s the kind of guy he is.

That’s why I chose to follow him. And I chose to fight.

In order to fight against this shit world, with this hand I’ll grab hold of the freedom of going beyond the walls for the first time.

I have chosen for myself.

Even if I am led into hell, I have no regrets.

Not one bit.

(Dear mom and dad, please don’t kill me over this permanent choice. I want you to hear me out.)

Today, I am coming out with something that only few of you know. I am ready to have a conversation about my mental illness.

Last year, I was diagnosed with depression. And in all honesty, I believe it was a problem for quite a while before that, but I think it just got worse to the point of hardly functioning.

So today, I got this tattoo. I feel that my leg was the best place for the meaning behind it. When everyone else sees it, they see “I’m fine,” but from my viewpoint, it reads “save me.” To me, it means that others see this person that seems okay, but, in reality, is not okay at all. It reminds me that people who may appear happy, may be at battle with themselves.

To me, depression is the days that I feel sad for no reason.
Depression is the mornings that I don’t feel capable of getting out of bed.
Depression is the sleeping too much, or sleeping too little.
Depression is the homework that I never completed, simply because I didn’t feel like I was capable.
Depression is the break downs I have over absolutely nothing.
Depression is the eating too much, or eating too little.
Depression is the nights I begin to cry because I feel so overwhelmed, even though everything is going right.
Depression is the 50 pounds I carry in my chest at all times.
Depression is the need to constantly be distracted (being on social media, playing video games, watching movies or shows, or working all the time) because I can’t trust myself with my thoughts for longer than 3 minutes.
Depression is the friendships that have suffered because of my inability to function.
Depression is the hurtful thoughts and actions I have towards myself.
Depression is the tears I have because I don’t know why I feel so worthless, when I know I should feel happy.

This is one of the most difficult things to open up about because it’s extremely hard for me to feel vulnerable…but this needs to be talked about. Mental illness is serious, but so shamed in our society. We care so much for our physical health, but hardly a thing about our mental state. And that is seriously messed up. Mental illness is not a choice and will likely hit everyone at some point in their life. If it’s such a huge issue, why aren’t we having this conversation about it?

That’s why I got this tattoo; they are great conversation starters. This forces me to talk about my own struggle, and why the awareness of it is important. You’d be surprised by how many people YOU know that struggle with depression, anxiety, or other mental illness. I may only be one person, but one can save another…and that’s all I could really ask for.

Maybe this is part of why I am so interested in psychology. I want to help people who feel the way I have—and still do—because it’s hell. And I don’t wish that upon anyone.

“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.”
—Robin Williams

**Also, THANK YOU to the ones who have helped me in this battle. I would not be where I am without you.**

tiny, messy, lunch break sketches absolutely MUST include wonder woman rn…

I love love LOVED this look (and i want to do a more finished piece with it eventually). i can’t not go hard about costuming and the history of dress and i’m going to flail about this for a sec. Costume designer Lindy Hemming clearly knew what she was doing. This wasn’t just a “this outfit is plain and practical after those nonsense ‘fashionable’ options” it was a definite, intentional nod to WWI Women’s uniforms (and Diana is going to the front, it makes sense for her to be in something uniform-ish).

Although WWII is better known for women going to work for the first time (i.e. the iconic ‘Rosie the Riveter’) - women absolutely served in various capacities in WWI and were considered crucial to the war effort. Even though most of the women who served still did so in tradition-friendly roles of relief & aid work, WWI is notable in that it was one of the first times that women served either in an enlisted or civilian capacity in uniform. 

Here are some examples of WWI women’s uniforms to show the clear tie between these and Diana’s outfit: 

Women’s Motor Corps 1916-1918 (American) - If you look at men’s uniforms from the same time period the core design elements are basically identical, they’ve just been ‘feminized’ in the women’s versions. 

UK army recruits 1917 (check out those hats! definite link between those and Diana’s, Also the clear distinction between what’s worn by the recruits and the commander)

Women Police Service, 1916 (British) - women served in uniform at home - filling traditionally male roles while men were away (MOST women served at home, with a relatively small % actually ending up at the front). below are some women firefighters in london around the same time wearing similar uniforms (i can barely go down a ladder period, much less do so with someone over my shoulder - so badass!!!): 

The costuming design is perfect in context of the movie’s storyline, wonder woman as a property, and as a tribute to the tens of thousands of women who enlisted and volunteered during the war and it made me SO HAPPY.

*side note - while pulling together these photos I learned about the Women’s Death Battalions (no, seriously) and Holy. CRAP. apparently around 6,000 russian women were actual combatants during the war and not just aid & relief and jfc how had I never heard about this? the rest of the world is like “we guess women can be nurses and ambulance drivers, we are so progressive!!!” meanwhile russia: GETS TIRED OF WOMEN DISGUISING THEMSELVES AS MEN AND SNEAKING INTO THE ARMY. FORMS WOMEN-ONLY UNITS AND CALLS THEM ‘BATTALIONS OF DEATH’*
