this person was sick


I visited my Pop-Pop in a rehabilitation center and he allowed me to take his portrait. He hasn’t been home in 3 months after he simply sat down one night and couldn’t get back on his feet. He’s been struggling with his lungs and heart, and we thought we were going to lose him a few days after he was hospitalized. He’s fighting for our sake; his body may be failing him but he’s never lost his edge, and demanded that grilled cheese he’s proudly holding in the second image to replace the egg salad the hospital gave him as part of the strict diet they have him on. He also checked himself out of this rehab center yesterday morning although he can barely walk, let alone drive, because he was sick of not being home with his family. Every time I see him he holds my hand and looks me in the eye and tells me to remember my worth and to never settle. It’s an honor to be his granddaughter.

One of my favorite things about RE7 was how 100% Done Ethan became after a while.

He went from pure terror at his situation to just getting annoyed by the Bakers and monsters, no matter how fucked up, disgusting, or disturbing things around him got.

It basically went like -

*Confronting a gigantic, mutated, multi-eyed abomination dead set on killing him brutally*


so lemme get this straight

you’ve got grown-ass men drawing loli porn and hypersexualizing young female characters (maybe not in this particular fandom, but my point still stands), and yet the people you choose to shit on are the (mostly) younger girls who enjoy a cute shark guy?? bc its ‘cringey’ or whatever the fuck???

miss me w/ that garbage lmao

on that note, instead of complaining that there’s more pics of sidon than female characters (which is a little sad but a lot of people mostly like drawing characters they personally find attractive), why not:

1). draw it yourself or

2). commission one of your favorite artists to do it

because both of those options are much better and more productive than pretending you have some sort of superiority over other people just because you don’t like a character

  • Arabs on Tumblr: I'm a feminist! I advocate for the LGBT community! I support Black Lives Matter! I stand up against xenophobia and islamaphobia!
  • Arabs on Tumblr: *refuse to acknowledge the Armenian/Assyrian genocide* *ignore religious and ethnic minorities in the MENA* *insist that it's ok call people "kuffar"* *ignore the plight of South Asian laborers in the Khaleej* *ignore the sexism and anti-blackness in their own communities because it's easier to blame white people for everything*

it’s pretty fucking misogynistic to call a woman ruined or weak because she let the love of a man into her life, as if she had no say in the matter and women are only strong when they’re hard and closed off and physically strong I’m just saying !!

How to take care of ur voice by ellie (I'm trying my best)

•LEMON, GINGER, AND HONEY are the most popular and for a reason! Definitely get those in your system. I suggest in tea.
•ZINC LOSENGES! Don’t get ones with Glucose. (Ie. Halls) They’ll only make your vocal folds sticky.
•HOT LIQUIDS!! Like tea and hot water!
•STEAM! Make a pot of boiling water, pour it in a bowl and then cover your head with a towel and breathe it in! The heat and moisture is a saviour.
•STAY HYDRATED! I can’t stress this enough. You have to keep your throat moist. It’s essential for getting better.
•NO CAFFEINE. Caffeine dries out your vocal folds and can cause more damage!
•AVOID DAIRY even when not sick before shows! It coats your throat and causes phlegm!
Tip to get rid of phlegm before a show!!!
Lemon juice in water clears that up nicely. I drank it religiously last summer.
•VAPOUR RUB starting behind the ear and down the jawline!
•VOCAL REST. Keep talking to a very minimum. Rest is essential to your vocal health and healing. Try to talk in your “head voice”, if possible, puts less strain on your vocal folds!
•GARGLE with these things!!
~Salt Water!
~Vinegar and water!
~Apple cider vinegar and cayenne powder!
•GARLIC! Chewing on a piece helps apparently! Haven’t tried this one yet but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
•AVOID COUGHING if you can. It causes the vocal folds to bang together harshly and could enflame them more.
•I know it made be hard, but try to AVOID CRYING. It dries out your vocal folds worse than anything else.


People need to stop calling Himchan fat. People need to stop saying that Himchan needs to lose weight. People need to stop saying that Himchan needs diet. People need to understand that this makes Himchan sick.

Himchan is a singer, his weight is not important to me or to you. Stop making him feel bad, stop belittling him.

Himchan is a great artist in every way, but people are closing their eyes to him, almost all comments on his instagram is about weight and diet (even the comments with good intentions), and never about how amazing and special he is.

Can you think for a minute?

His weight is none of our business. What he eats is none of our business.

Jokes about weight are not funny. These jokes made Himchan have excessive weight loss and go to the hospital. Have people forgotten that?

Let’s be realistic and don’t fantasize or romanticize any situation here. People will continue doing this with Himchan until his situation is irreversible? Until he gets very sick?

This is a great psychological preassure. And psychological pressure is aggression, violence.

For God’s sake, leave Himchan alone. He is a adult man who takes care of his own life.

And please stop defending and supporting “jokes” about Himchan’s weight (even if the one who made the “joke” was a friend of his, or even a BAP member).
