trying out posting them to tumblr

Important information for Content Creators on Tumblr

okay i know ive posted alot about this just now, but now that ive got it more or less figured out I’m gonna make a better post here and include the tags relevent to my interactions in it to ensure no one else in my fandoms/communities are blindsided like i was. 

I encourage you to make your own, or to just recopy this, tagging the fandoms and communities important to you!

CONTENT CREATORS: TUMBLR IS HIDING YOUR POSTS!

If you make a post with external links, your post will be hidden from searches. If you make a post and link to your redbubble, no one can search for your post. If you make art and link it to your deviantart or artstation, no one can search for you post. If you make any post and just throw on a “hey here is where you find me!” no one can search that post. If you want to recommend a fic or a youtube video, no one can search your post, if you… hell you get the idea. Tumblr has completely shut down content creators on this hellsite and its fucking infuriating.

I have just confirmed that the post type “Link” also does not show up in the tags. Thats right, there is an ENTIRE TYPE OF TUMBLR POST that cannot be searched. G-FUCKING-G TUMBLR.

EDIT: Okay! I have done more testing (and a video to go along with it) and at this point i can say that this is still very real, but that it only affects links to specific websites, presumably ones that tumblr doesn’t have added to some sort of “internal whitelist” of safe sites. 
I would suggest if you intend to continue tagging, to maintain a very very unique tag and use it to keep tabs on your work to ensure they are continuing to show up.
In the meantime, I will do my best to keep a list here of links verified to work, and ones verified to not work. Please feel free to comment on the post or reblog if you have your own experiences!

Also there has been confirmation that this change affects posts regardless of posting date. So it’ll hide posts made before the update went into affect; expected but good to confirm!

WHAT TO DO?

It shuts down posts with external links, so at first i assumed internal links would be fine. and they are. if you make a page on your tumblr blog called like /links or something you can certainly link to that. But in that way you run into an issue, tumblr mobile is a piece of shit and cant load tumblr pages, and itll just take you back to the mainblog any time you try.

The best solution ive found so far is put all your relevent links in your blog description like so:

and then in every content post, call tumblr out for being a piece of shit and direct them to the links in your blog description.

Edit: In the top right hand side of photo posts you can click on it and include a single link as “source” that should work if you have one link neccessary. though if you need more you are still SOL. Find it like so:

It will appear in dash format at the bottom left of the post:

in desktop them view where it can be found, or if it can be found, varies by theme.

CONTENT CREATOR SUPPORTERS

It is important now more than ever on this hellsite that you try to support your artist and content creators, reblog as much as possible, look to find them on websites off this piece of shit, and generally do your best to spread the word and support them, since tumblr itself is trying to silence them! 

I HAVE AN ACCOMPANYING POST HERE WITH A VIDEO UPDATE AND INFORMATION PLEASE CHECK IT OUT.

person of color: hey wouldn’t it be cool if angels were represented as brown or black more often–

edgy whites who went to a week of bible study 15 yrs ago and regurgitate all their Superior Knowledge from textually inaccurate all-caps tumblr posts written by supernatural fans: um…… ACTUALLY :) angels don’t look like HUMANS they look like ELDRITCH NIGHTMARES™ that MELT YOUR BRAIN OUT so stop giving them skin colors :) try a few animal heads instead :) don’t forget the eyeballs :)

Small tips that make a (healthier) difference

Hey you! I dare you to try your best to follow this checklist tomorrow! But hey! Not so fast. Why not try it again the next day (and every day after that)? Sometimes it’s the smaller changes that can in fact help improve our health and wellbeing, especially when we think we’re short of time. School stressing you out? Everything is going to be ok. Try a few little things here. Tick everything off that you completed! Tell me how it goes for you!

This was a spontaneous post and I’ve found that I’ve been making errors in my posts recently! Plz correct me bc I am an egg. Hope u like it anyway.


Morning:

  • Wake up as soon as you do naturally or when your alarm goes off. Make your bed! Open the blinds!
  • Get out of bed and s t r e t c h – all the way from the very tips of your fingers to the tips of your toes. (Trust me, this feels good)
  • Set your intention for the day. This might be weird for some, but try it. Example: Today I will be productive. I will be focused on my tasks and I will take the time to relax when needed. It doesn’t have to be as complicated – Example 2: I can do this. Remind yourself again.
  • Eat breakfast. A MUST. Try my favourite: eggs (poached, scrambled or fried) on toast with avocado or baked beans. Yes. We are on a roll today.
  • Drink one full glass of water within the hour of waking (don’t down it all in one go though!).
    • Add 1/8 of a lemon to this. Lemon is great to alkalise the body and getting that digestive system of yours goin! This will flush out toxins in the body and support your immune system too!
      • Side note: Wait half an hour before brushing your teeth after this (or maybe do it before) because lemons are acidic after all and can probably do some damage to your shiny whites.
  • Try having a water bottle by your bedside and beside you throughout the day as a constant reminder to drink water as you see it. Trust me, this has helped improve my water intake a lot.
  • Organise your day. What are your plans? What are of priority and what are not? Try brain dumping this, and then organising each task/item into a list, categorised in importance. This will help decrease stress throughout the day and easy referral back to this list.
  • Dress in some lovely clothes! Your fave sweater and some cool black tights? 100%!! What about that pretty skirt you like with a nice top? HECK YEAH!!!

Midday:

  • Lunchtime! Eat again. Wholesome foods are an absolute must whenever you can.
  • Aim for 3-4 cups of water by lunchtime (inclusive of the glass of lemon water you had this morning).
  • Remember that intention you set this morning? Say it again.
  • Throw a compliment at someone. Be genuine. This will have a butterfly effect. If someone throws one at you to – don’t disagree! Say thank you. You rock, don’t doubt that.
  • Are there any ticks beside those tasks on your checklist from this morning? I hope so!
  • Throw in a random burst of exercise! In public too – who cares! Pick one of these: 50 starjumps! 3 sets of 10 squats! A quick walk around outdoors!

Arvo (/Afternoon… Straya):

  • Hit that 3pm slump? Same. Here are a few ideas to get you going, especially coming home from a long day:
    • NAP! 15-20 mins. No longer. No less. Be strict here or your sleep pattern might go funny and we don’t want that. (And groggy headaches are gross)
    • Exercise! This is so fundamental to our health and wellbeing. Try out short pilates videos (no equipment) here (that as living proof, work) or some really cool yoga videos here, here, and here. Yoga is great. Try this daily. Or take a brisk walk for 30 minutes  = wake up your brain, pick up your mood AND burn some fat. C’mon, go get your shoes!
    • Have a healthy snack, such as those listed in this great post by @tbhstudying. Get your brain and bod going, my friends!
  • Write down your to do list for any work, study or event related things that you need to complete this afternoon. Set out all your equipment, sort out your papers from the day and get organised!
  • Clear your (bedroom/bed/desk/floor/work/closet) space for 5 minutes every day. I’m guessing that you’ve started to pile a few things here like I do. This will save you time and help maintain cleanliness, staving away from the complicated stress that comes from having to reorganise just about everything which we all know to hate when we’re busy with other things.
  • Have you had your 5th and 6th cups of water of the day yet? Get to it!
  • Sit up straighter and you’ll look more confident and feel more confident. Your back will also be very grateful for this.

Night:

  • Continue all your extra to-dos. Get this done. You can do it!
  • Make sure to put something in your body guys. I’m talking food here by the way… don’t let that sentence mislead you! This is especially important for those of you probably thinking “I’ll just eat later” or “I’m not hungry”.  Eat. EAT NOW. PleASE.
  • Spend some quality time with your family. How’s their day been? Tell them about yours too.
  • Glasses of water No. 7, 8 and beyond should be here.
  • Prep your meals, lists, notes, outfits, etc. for the next day. Getting these things sorted now will help you get it out of the way and save you time!
  • Settle down a little. It’s time to wiiiind doooooooownnn. Read a book. Scroll through Tumblr (aaayeee!) – but not too deep into the pits okay guys. Watch a little TV.
  • I know a lot of posts say to switch off 1-2 hours before bed. If you’re literally glued to your electronics, try switching off 5 minutes earlier every day and replace that with something else. What about doing your prep items for the next day (listed two points back!!)? Or, do get those pesky chores out the way.
    • Side note: Cleaning your room often will help freshen it, get rid of itchy dust and decrease the chances of bugs and other smol random things to crawl around your room. (If that’s not a little motivation then I’m not sure what is…). It’ll also keep your space maintained so you don’t have to do it all at once. *Shudders* Plus the likelihood of those gross germs from the world hanging around and building up in there is a no-no.
  • Sleep! 7-8 hours. Your body will thank you for it. CRUCIAL for healthy brain and body function. Plus your mood and skin will improve (i.e. gOODBYE EYEBAGS and hELLO GLOWING SKIN).
    • Side note: I see you reading this at 12am when you should be sleeping. I see you.

I hope this has helped you guys a little or at least inspired you to make a small change to your daily routine! Try doing a few items here (e.g. glass of lemon water, sitting up straighter, 8+ cups of water) and record this on a habit tracker! The smallest changes often have the greatest effects!

Don’t forget to let me know how you go.

anonymous asked:

When downloading books illegally is the only way you can get them  ¯\_(ツ)_/ ¯

Hey Nonnie,

I get that. I’ve been in that position, I’ve downloaded books illegally, because I didn’t see any other option and I didn’t realise how much this hurt the authors. However, in the years on Tumblr and getting more involved in the writing/reading/publishing world, I found out how wrong I was in what I was doing. Writing is not a high paying job as it is, and by pirating books, we’re doing so, so much damage. 

I’m leaving some links here for places where you can get books online legally (I don’t know how many of them actually still work, because the posts I got them from are pretty old, but it’s worth a try):

link 1  link 2  link 3  link 4

Also, most cities have a public library - use it! Libraries are a godsend and more people should be making use of them. Borrow from friends/relatives. Save up for book sales. There are always options if you’re willing to commit to it. 

But please, please do not pirate books. 

Have a lovely day! <3

discourse gothic
  • you’ve seen this url before. have you seen this url before? you need to take a nap. all the chevrons are blurring together. 
  • in your dreams, you are awakened repeatedly by several people with purple hair. “op is an aphobe,” they say. “yikes :/" 
  • your last five reblogs are just homophobic posts followed by a chain of keysmashes. you think the discourse may have once involved discussion, but you’re not sure. 
  • someone reblogs your post and attaches a gif of a white boy rolling his eyes. you do not try to respond. you have tried that too many times. you are always blocked. 
  • your friend calls. it is her birthday. she offers you a slice of cake. you scream and curl up in a ball. 
  • you have blacklisted "queer.” you try to hateread an inclusionist’s blog, but tumblr savior has hidden every single post. that can’t be right. you frown and hit “show anyway.” you regret it. 
  • your mother wants to show you a funny comic from the sunday paper. you shudder and excuse yourself. comics as a medium have been ruined for you. 
  • you spend 30 seconds making a text post about something that vaguely irritates you. at least three different people respond telling you to stop vagueing them. you write out long, apologetic explanations but then discover you cannot send them. you have been blocked. you eat a whole sleeve of crackers instead.
  • an irl friend says “lgbtqia.” you get blackout drunk. 
  • you no longer attach any particular meaning to the words “assimilationist,” “radical,” or “reactionary.” you think maybe they should be banned. you try to make a text post about this but fall asleep on your keyboard halfway though. you are tired… so tired.

I am very pro Ladies loving Ladies as a lady lover my self, but something I don’t get is when you see these super aesthetic ‘natural’ romantic pictures of girls cuddling in bed or like maybe they are making out and it gets a bit saucy, who the hell is actually taking the pictures?!? Like is there just someone in their room who is hired to take these pics to post them to tumblr, do they solicit the help of a friend? It just seems like it would be a little awkward??? I guess is what I am try to say is, where the hell do I sign up for this to be my job?

Here's to Nonbinary Kids

Here’s to nonbinary kids who don’t feel comfortable coming out because they “aren’t trans/cis enough”

Here’s to nonbinary kids whose parents and friends tell them they’re just doing this for attention.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who soldier through constant misgendering and dysphoria.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who don’t take shit from anyone and call people out when they misgender them.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who are too polite to correct people and are very timid about their own gender.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who are completely comfortable with themselves.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who are still trying to figure it all out.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who flinch inwardly every time they get called “miss/mister” “young man/lady” or any other gendered terms in public but don’t say anything so as to not cause a scene.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who don’t reblog certain posts on tumblr because they’re strictly gendered and they don’t feel like they can relate anymore.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who don’t know they’re nonbinary yet.

Here’s to nonbinary kids who do.

Here’s to nonbinary kids. You’re amazing and wonderful and don’t ever let anyone tell you differently.

Shawn Jackson and Hasse Bernfield, better known as Whit and Slug.  These two are Nana’s adopted grandsons, and certified little shits– ESPECIALLY Whit.  Both of them have spent most of their lives on the planet too.

Whit came to the planet with their (rich) family to live in one of the colony.  They got their nickname because of the old Whitworth rifle they carried around: it’s a family heirloom and they would always brag that they would inherit it and use it one day.  They’re kind of annoying, 110% sass, and a joker.  It was them who told Nana all that dumb shit that she totally believes.

Slug’s parents died in a mining accident and he became a bit of an outcast in the community.  He wouldn’t let anyone near him and ended up bullying kids out of food and money.  When he tried to steal from Whit, an outcast in their own right, they became fast friends.  He got his name from his weapon of choice: the shotgun.

Also Whit is totally pining for Slug.

Emergency Post: Help Needed

Hey tumblr family, is anyone or does anyone know someone looking for a roommate in the Brooklyn NYC area?

I’ve got a friend in dire need of getting out of an abusive situation (mental and physical abuse) and we’re trying to find a way to get them out asap. She’s handy around the house, good at cooking and loves animals and has their own car (old but works well enough) and is just in general a lovely wonderful person who really needs help getting out of an awful situation.

If you can PM me or send me an IM, I’d really appreciate the help in getting my friend to a place of safety. Thank you.

( @vaspider and @deadcatwithaflamethrower can I possibly get a boost for this? Thank you <3)

#YoiPositivityMovement

I know I didn’t say much when answering all of your asks (if i said anything at all), but I want to sincerely thank all of you for all of the support and love you’ve shown me recently.

Please give love to the other blogs experiencing hate right now, I’m not the only one. 

I also want to mention that this hate won’t change the way I run dandybek. This will still be a roleplay blog. 

I’m having a hard time addressing this. 

Scrolling through my dash and seeing your support has really helped me. I can’t thank all of you enough for the kind messages, asks, and posts. 

It still feels very strange to me. I have had very severe problems with anxiety and self harm in the past, and I’m not the only one. Sending people hate, people with thoughts, people with feelings, is monstrous. It makes you hate yourself, even though you did nothing wrong. 

For those who have sent me hate, I want you to know exactly how much you hurt me. I can’t look at the word ‘deserved’ anymore without panicking and thinking about your awful words. I was too scared to even open my ask box. I was scared to check my messages. I was scared to be on tumblr, which is a read shame considering that this is a ‘safe’ place for many. I couldn’t sleep last night. I keep thinking about what someone might have done to you (them) that would trigger you (them) to lash out at me. 

What can you do to help? 

I want to use this as an opportunity to spread some positivity in the fandom. 

If you’re reading this, go send 5 different blogs some love in their inbox. (Not me.) It can be anon or not, but try your best to make someone’s day. 

Make a post telling a blog how much you appreciate their work. Gift someone writing, or artwork. Make someone feel special. 

Tag everything as #YoiPositivityMovement , especially in the asks. I want to see how much love we can spread. 

Example: anonymous asked: you’re gr8 #yoipositivitymovement

Reblog this. Spread the word. Spread positivity. 

xoxo, dandybek

Dear New Simblrs....

The simblr community can be a scary place and with a lot drama and negativity. I have seen people post about not feeling included and having difficulty fitting in and it upsets me as there is a large part of this community that are awesome. But joining here is like switching highschool halfway through the semester. You are the obvious newbie and that’s super difficult. So here are some tips:

What To Do

  1. Start building up your simblr! We want to know who you are, what your style is! Post pictures of your sims :)
  2. Start commenting! Liking posts is cool, but comments are what makes people notice you. Just say something nice, make other simmers recognize your name as someone who leaves sweet messages.
  3. Find simblrs you like and follow them! I find it better to follow less people but give those more attention. Trying to be everyone’s best friend is difficult.
  4. Send those simblrs a message! Most people have open IMs and just saying “hey I love your sims!” is a great way to start a conversation
  5. Be personal! It means a lot more if you tell people you love a certain sim by name, or mention something about them you saw in a post. It shows others you actually really look at their stuff ;)
  6. Join in! There are so many RP groups out there, groupme chats you can join in to meet new people.
  7. Pixel Buddies! This page will find you another simblr who will look after you and pull you into the community!
  8. Collab! People often love to collab. Just ask someone in IM but try to be humble about it and maybe get to know them a bit more before you ask.
  9. Use the search tool! add “/search/*” at the end of any tumblr to search for stuff. Maybe search “collab” if you want to know who they collab with. Or just read their answered asks to find out what that simmer is like.
  10. Don’t be afraid! We actually don’t bite ;) We love meeting new people! And asking for help is always okay!

What NOT To Do

  1. Endlessly reblog other people’s posts. This takes away from your own simblr and makes you look more like you are trying to get friends.
  2. Count your followers. Sure it is awesome to have a lot of them, but they come naturally while you develop your page. Really important are those people you become friends with.
  3. Sit in the corner and do nothing. If we don’t know you are have never heard of your simblr, it’s going to be hard for us to integrate you. So just keep posting and commenting so we know who you are!
  4. Complain publically ;) We might have a lot of drama here, but most of us don’t like it. Posts bringing up issues, saying the community isn’t nice etc makes people back away.
  5. Want. Getting asks like “can I have your sim” etc is a bit too forward when you don’ know someone. Just talk to someone first or maybe start your ask off telling them how much you like their simblr and that you have seen they share sims and you were wondering if maybe they might share with you. How you say it is everything!
  6. Get caught up in Drama. First impressions do count. So try to keep a profile as someone who just sims and is friendly.
  7. Do take simblr too seriously. There is no prize to be won and in the end, real-life is still more important!

It really is like highschool a bit here, so keep that in mind. I started out here with very little friends but just by IMing people, leaving nice comments and helping where I can I have met so many awesome new people. The first instinct is either to hide in the corner and hope someone will find you, are to try and suck up to simblrs you think are well-known. Neither really work. Some things take time and require some effort. This advice is my personal advice, that I have taken from my own experiences and those from newer simblrs I have seen thrive over the last months. I hope this can help some!

I know fandoms are tough, especially the Outlander one. I don’t pretend to know everything, but I try to be as accurate as possible in my posts, no matter what the subject is. 

My history posts are what I would call my bread and butter and are what I enjoy the most. I am approaching my 6th year here on Tumblr and have seen a lot of Tumblrs come and go.  Even when I post about Scottish Independence I have managed to avoid the haters, I think it is because I respect peoples opinions and don’t go out of my way to argue with people. Thank you for all the comments and support this evening, I very much appreciate them all.

Puzzleshipping Fanfic Masterlist

of favourite/fun fanfictions read by yours truly

Last updated: Mar 20th, 2017

Please note: this is not my entire collection! That would be far too many for me to review (but it’s an awful lot of them).  Also the reason why I haven’t included small summaries for the fanfictions in this list - sorry! These are fanfictions that I really enjoyed/reccommend: if you want my entire collections, please check out my AO3 and FF.net collections, respectively. Thank you!

I also humbly suggest my own writing, all posted to my AO3.

Most of the links are either from A03 or FF.net, they’re mixed up within. A few are tumblr links now too, fyi!

I will try to remember to update this list when I can. Please enjoy!

H.M.S KAISOO > Iceberg ahead!

Attention all Kaisoo shippers and quite frankly, all other sensible, moral and kind humans out there. I have sat by and not said anything for a while now but I can’t bite my tongue any longer. It seems Inarichi is being bullied by a bunch of people on here and I can’t stand bullying! She is a beloved writer of our fandom and yet some of you are turning your back on her because she posted something positive – I really can’t even begin to describe how hurt this makes me feel. Now, I know she might be just brushing off these horrible bullies and not letting them get to her (because she is a close friend of mine and she has thick skin for people of such meagre calibre) but I assure you that regardless of how it is affecting her, I WILL NOT and NEVER WILL stand for bullying towards anyone for any reason, ever! I don’t care if you think somebody is the worst person to ever walk this earth, bullying doesn’t solve anything and quite frankly it just makes YOU stoop down to their level. Whether or not you are joining in on this bullying or not (yes, there are like 200+ people in on this, a fair fight? I think not) if you are witnessing it and not standing up to them, then you might as well be complicit to their actions because to be a bystander doesn’t solve anything and it can leave the victim feeling even more alone and isolated in many cases.

Now, to clear up the definition of bullying/cyberbullying, let me recite to you what I teach the kids at school on a yearly basis.

Bullying is the repeated action of deliberately making someone hurt either physically or emotionally.

Repeated is the key word there. If you say something and offend or hurt someone just once, then you’re probably just human; we have all done that by accident in the past. But to SEEK her out on MULTIPLE social media platforms and REPEATEDLY leave hurtful comments. Well, I think it’s pretty clear that you are nothing but a bully.

Now, bullies will often seek out some kind of moral/righteous excuse for their actions and no matter how founded in truth or delusion these excuses are – it doesn’t EVER make their actions acceptable. Once you actively seek out someone and intentionally hurt them repeatedly, that makes you a bully and nothing will ever change that.

So I am writing this because I know these bullies can’t be reasoned with, but I also believe in standing up for those who need it and for those you care about. Now these people might choose to flood my account with hurtful and childish comments. That’s fine but please know that if you do, you will only be making yourself look stupid in the end. I’ve been tracking and reading all your blogs and comments for a while now and it baffles me how hypocritical some of you can be in the space of just two or three posts. Anyway, let’s not even go into that for fear that this post will be longer than my dissertation but I urge people who are reading this and who ARE decent people to re-blog/like and show all the victims of bullying out there that they are NOT alone and there ARE still nice and good people in this world who are mature regardless of their age, who don’t have to make themselves feel better by trying to knock others down. No, we don’t need to do that because we have self-worth, we have confidence in the fact that we are nice and decent people.

Captain L, signing out! *salute*

THE POST THAT STARTED ALL THE HATE:

INARI’S REPLY TO THE HATE COMMENTS

JUST A FEW FOLLOWING HARASSMENTS (Just a sample of the amount of hate she recieved since she blocked a lot of them after she replied to these… these are about 10% of the hate she got on tumblr. Not including twitter and other SNS)

I mean, take a look at these people’s blogs if you want to see the extent to which they have taken this bullying. I will leave you with this info and let yourself decide.

Thanks,

anonymous asked:

yes everyone on Tumblr is figuring out Weavemama is just a bully on the Internet. Yup.

I’m assuming that you’re the same anon, or that abbytran, who sent that ask saying that weavemama contradicts on her post. 

Okay, so, you’re claiming that she “bullies” other people, like making tantrums, spreading rumors or belittling people instead of shutting down ignorant, racist/transphobic people by bringing up actual sources on important topics or just dragging them with witty comments or gifs. I’m not sure why the fuck you decided to send me this rumor, other than trying to have me turn on weavemama, but what you’re doing is idiotic and downright childish.

anonymous asked:

i'm so happy with the inclusionists that we have and all the a-spec allies but i hardly ever see any inclusionists that are minors and i wish there were more. it seems there are a lot of exclusionist minors and it makes me fear for the future of the community sometimes. the kids will grow up with these sort of views and... it'll ruin the lgbt+ community in a way...

I also think it’s a disturbing trend that most exclusionists are younger than inclusionists. That kind of shows you that exclusionism of aspecs is a relatively new thing, and that the older generations of LGBT+ people recognize what exclusionism really is.

You’ll have a 26 year old bi inclusionist saying “I don’t support aspec exclusionism because it’s far too much like bi exclusionism, which I experienced when I was first coming out. Our community wasn’t built on shared experiences dealing with homophobia and transphobia–even lesbians, bisexuals, and trans people have all had their struggles with trying to be included and get a letter in the acronym. Aspecs are no different.”

And then you’ll have a 15 year old exclusionist tell them that they’re wrong because of a post they read on tumblr.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m 16. I’m by no means an LGBT+ veteran. But that’s a trend I’ve noticed, and one of the reasons I feel so strongly about allying myself with the inclusionist side. Like… I obviously don’t know everything about queer history. I want to learn from those who do, from those who have experienced it. I feel like it’s important.

I just really hope my fellow LGBT+ minors on the exclusionist side can realize this soon, too. For the sake of our future, like you said.
