thought this was precious

hipsterzombiesquad  asked:

I got horned nerite snails from petsmart and I'm partially ashamed for getting animals from them and partially ecstatic that they actually had them. They're precious! I thought you'd like to know lol

@hipsterzombiesquad thank you for letting me know :’3 I’m so excited for you! :D lemme know how they settle in :DD

also, I feel conflicted about buying animals from them, and I’d rather support local pet stores but I know that sometimes big box stores are more economical and are the only places that have certain animals available, so I won’t ever judge anyone for buying from a chain pet store <3

This is a video I keep in my phone and listen to it once in a while when I’m down. 

It’s one hell of a gifset, but I just don’t want to cut anything he said because every word shows his precious growing mindset. Everyone has weakness and difficult times, but it is so important that one can be critical of oneself even if others are lenient, be conscious of their ability and goal, be realistic but also optimistic about the future, and have a fire to keep going despite hardship. Each of those characteristics is good enough, but it’s such an amazing thing to find this all in one person, and condensed in just a few sentences in this interview.

Beside his lovely performances, this is the reason why I admire this person so much. And because life is so hard for me recently, let me just translate this and gain some strength from it now then.

When you see a hot girl for the first time and realise that you might not be as heterosexual as you first thought.

Yuuri’s list of songs for his Free Skate

I’m not sure if this has been done before, but in case it hasn’t, I just thought it was too precious not to share it!!

In episode 4 of Yuri on Ice, where Yuuri is trying to choose a song for his Free Skate, there’s a fleeting moment when you can actually see his entire list of rejected songs (right before he gives up and rings Phichit).

SO. A few months ago, after the nth time of re-watching YOI (where n was not yet an embarrassingly large number), I copied down the list and tried to work out what it said. 

Turns out, it’s not only a list of songs but also a few comments he had for each song!!

Here’s the original Japanese from the scene and a rough translation.
(Pardon my very basic Japanese. PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you spot errors and I will correct them!)

ENJOY :D

「生の舞踏」

明るすぎる。イメージに合わない。

夜0時に骸骨が踊り出しそうにない。

“Danse Macabre”

Too bright/cheerful. The image does not fit.

Does not seem likely for skeletons to come out dancing at midnight.

Notes: The song title actually says the “dance of life” but considering the dancing skeletons and the bright image, I think he’s referring to Danse Macabre.

「魔導士の弟子」

落ちつきがない。テンポが激しすぎる。

水汲みの魔法がうまく使えそう...

“Sorcerer’s Apprentice”

Not calm. Tempo too intense.

Water-drawing spell seems to be used well…

「黒鳥の湖」

恐すぎる。もっとカ強くいきたい。

白鳥が出なさそう...

“The Black Swan”

Too scary. Want it to be stronger.

The white swan does not seem to appear.

瓦割り人形 「ピ·ポ·ポ

切なすぎる。情熱的に行きたい!

(ク)リスマスにこんな夢を見たくない。

The Nutcracker “Pas de Deux”

Too sad. Want it to be more passionate!

I do not want to see such a dream at Christmas.

Notes: This title played merry hell with me. It says “Tile?Ceramic? splitting doll. Pi-po-pu” Ended up searching Japanese sites for possible interpretations and the most likely one seems to be the Nutcracker Pas De Deux, especially since he mentions Christmas…


「皆寝るんじゃない」

(ロマ)ンチックさが足らない。

(王)子の名前を解き明かせなさそう。

 “Nessun Dorma” (English: None Shall Sleep)

Not sufficiently romantic.

It seems the name of the prince cannot be guessed.

Notes: Another title that was quite difficult to guess, because it’s not the official Japanese name of Nessun Dorma and literally says “Everyone shall not sleep”. But since he mentions guessing the name of the prince, I think Nessun Dorma is correct.

Thank goodness he rejected all of the above, because his final FS was much better <3 <3 <3

excuse me while I d i e ❤❤❤

(lil bb davo taking even his imaginary hockey games so seriously why does this not surprise me)

Before I met you, I wanted to be dead all the time. I still do, because of the - you know- mental illness, but now that you’re here, I don’t want to, want to die anymore
