what i saw and how i lied

anonymous asked:

I think kekashi is one of the worst teachers.he favored sasuke because they were 'alike' and then when he was gone he went on to naruto.And sakura got completely ignored,kekashi never taught her a jutsu.And don't say she already had tsunade,cus naruto had the pervert teacher and Sasuke had orochimoru.Yet he helped both of them.Plus he coddled her by telling her lies about how sasuke was fine when he knew Damn well something was up.He saw her as a baby to be coddled and protected,what faith.

*Sigh*, not this again…

Yes, he trained Sasuke because they were alike, but remember that Sasuke was still part of the Chuunin exams, he was training him for his upcoming battle against Gaara. Sakura was no longer part of the exams by that point.

I also really don’t get why this is so unforgivable. Gai almost exclusively trains Lee for that very same reason; because they’re alike. Yet I don’t hear anybody hating on Gai, saying how he ignored Neji and Tenten. Neji often trained with Hinata and Hiashi because they were alike; they were family, they knew their fighting style, and so would yield better results.

Now, because of Sasuke’s circumstances regarding his growing darkness towards the end of Part 1, Kakashi was always gonna give him a little more attention during that time period, in order to try and deter him away from that path. However, as they were similar, it makes sense that he’d opt to train Sasuke in particular, because he felt as though that would yield the best results, because they’d be able to focus on Sasuke’s particular talents.

It’s not the job of a Sensei to be constantly training their students and teaching them new techniques. Their role is to guide their students along the path of being a shinobi, by teaching them what’s truly important, teaching them the proper codes of conduct, and the moral philosophies, and Kakashi always did that. He did it as early as the Bell Test:

Also Kakashi always monitored Sakura’s growth and potential, which is also what a Sensei is supposed to do. While observing Sakura’s fight with Ino, Kakashi acknowledged her skills and complimented her abilities, as he very bluntly said that her chakra control skills surpassed that of Naruto:

And he even says that she’s above his ”favourite”, Sasuke in that regard:

He therefore obviously always had faith in her abilities. This was again proven at the beginning of Part 2 where he predicted that she’d eventually surpass Tsunade, which she did. So yeah, I think to say that he ignored her isn’t giving Kakashi enough credit. Kakashi was closely monitoring her development, as he did for each member of his team. He may not have actively trained all of them, but the attention was there.

Furthermore, Kakashi only trained Naruto because the latter was trying to infuse the Rasengan with his wind nature. It was specialised training that only Naruto could do due to the fact that he already knew that Rasengan, and he had the chakra reserves necessary to go through with the training. Not only that, but it was also fitting for Kakashi to have aided in the training since he also knew how to do the Rasengan. It’s not like Kakashi just ignored her or deemed her unworthy of training or something. It was specialised training:

This is just you being overly defensive of Sakura, because Kakashi has literally done nothing wrong to her. And as for your comment about how Kakashi apparently saw her as “a baby to be coddled and protected”, that’s just completely false. He was trying to remain positive about the situation, just like Naruto was, because they didn’t know the true extent of Sasuke’s darkness, so they truly believed that it would work out eventually. What he said to her wasn’t a lie if that’s what he believed was actually going to happen.

I’ve seen people angry that cas couldn’t handle the vampire case alone, but for me, it made sense from what I understand of Cas’ character up to this point. This isn’t the usual dumbing down of Cas for no good reason that people are making it out to be. I saw it as an acknowledgement of Cas’ depression. We’ve clearly seen how Cas was already suffering from feelings of worthlessness, so losing Sam and Dean and being unable to find them was his breaking point. Couple his depression with millennia of angelic hard-wiring to always have a mission, and his current mission being keeping Sam and Dean safe, the feeling that he had failed at what he believes his purpose is, where he believes his value lies was too much. I get upset when the writers make Cas out to be stupid, but this was one episode where I felt that Cas’ actions/motivations/emotions made sense.

The books I got from Half Price Books a couple of weeks ago. I believe ¾ if not 4/4 are middle grade books. I never really read middle grade, or gave it the time of day, until this assignment in one of my classes. I deeply regret looking over this wonderful genre. I didn’t realize middle grade tackled such hard topics.

What I Saw and How I Lied Review

What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell was not a let down, that I can say for 100% certainty. I found this book while I was browsing around at my local library, looking for something to read. I had given up hope about finding a truly good book, as I have encountered a multitude of duds. This book has given me hope again. I’d say this definitely deserves a four out of give stars.  Evelyn, her mother, and step-father, decide on a last minute decision to leave their home (well, the step-father’s mother’s home) and to go on a vacation at the very end of summer to Florida. Upon arrival, they discover that the town is practically deserted. However, they become friendly with some of the few people there. Among them includes Peter, a twenty-three-year-old ex-GI who happens to be visiting for business.  The expectations that came along with the National Book Award sticker on the book did not wither while reading this book. In fact, it kept me so sucked in, I read it in less than twenty-four hours. Throughout the book, it maintained about the same level of interest, creating a sort of dreamy atmosphere around it.  The book is filled with mystery in it, as there are events that happen that just don’t seem right, even if Evelyn herself fails to recognize it or pushes it away. After several suspicious events, I began trying to piece the story together to find the truth to no avail. It wasn’t until the last few chapters that most of the truth was revealed. And it all made complete sense! Some suspicious were confirmed while other precious were proved to be misconceptions. That’s what made this book utterly fantastic!  Evelyn starts out as a insecure young 15-year-old who is dependent on her best friend. She’s envious of the other girls and her mother who seem to have all that she doesn’t. Through her experiences in Florida and the danger shoved in her face she develops as a strong character. However, it’s not all black and white, but overflowing with gray. It’s a tale of self-discovery, lessons learned, character growth.  The romance in this book is twisted over backwards with a hint of suspicious. For instance, Peter is twenty-three and Evelyn is 15, something must be wrong for a man in his twenties to want to be with a mere teenager, right? But, does love know no bounds? And what’s with Peter being already acquainted with Eve’s step-father and his poorly hidden contempt towards him? Don’t even get me started with the mom… This is a perfect read for this time of the year: summer! Oh, and one last thing: while reading this book, the song Florida Kilos by Lana Del Rey popped into my head. I don’t think there is a more perfect song to fit this book. Hear for yourself: Florida Kilos. Anyway, this is a good young adult read. Similar books are: The Bone Season and Stolen.

                                  Latoya Found Out Everything

Everything was fine at first. I never thought she would find out like this! We went from watching scary movies to her going through my phone and seeing everything regarding my arrangement with Ahmed. I mean….everything. If only I didn’t pass out during the movie she still wouldn’t know anything.

She woke me up crying. Yelling at me as if I used up all of her up her Mac Highlighter lol. I was startled and really couldn’t comprehend her anger until I saw her holding my phone. She just kept hollering that she couldn’t believe I lied to her and kept things from her. She was very distraught and on the arge of crying. She was shouting how I didn’t know what I was getting into, and that I didn’t know this man and how taking money from him is soliciting myself.

I wanted to explain to her that it wasn’t like that. How being in an arrangement with Ahmed wasn’t about just “sex”, but I already knew she wasn’t trying to hear it. She just stormed off. This is why I can’t talk to her. Latoya has always acted like a mother more than a sister to me. As if I can’t take care of myself and make my own decisions. Her actions and tears go deeper then surface level. Anyone that isn’t us she has an issue with. I’ve never had tons of female friends or even been in a relationship more then a year because of Latoya. I honestly think, theres some underline jealousy she has of being afraid of losing me to anyone else. Therefore, anyone that comes into my life she has ill feelings about them.

I love my twin, but she needs to just chill the fuck out. I’m honestly relieved she found out, even if I didn’t have a chance to tell her myself. I think I’m going to take Ahmed on his offer and see him for the 3days he requested of me. Latoya and I need the space anyway and I’m not about to let her I ruin this for me.

First off, I'm a larrie. But I saw your post about Blue and the Kardashian pap pictures and it really confused me, because I'd never seen any of those. So I sent Blue an ask about it, asking if that meant that there were a lot of celebrities calling paps on their kids and exploiting them for fame and how it made me think. Instead of responding, she posted a bunch of other anons agreeing with her and I'm pretty sure she blocked me. :| Now I'm questioning all of what they post.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but you’re straight up being lied to by almost every larrie blog with enough followers to get anons. They know they’re lying and they hate being called out on it. It’s why harassing Briana, Louis, and their families is okay in their eyes because they’re just “posting on a blog” but the minute an anti points out that they are spreading blatant lies they freak out, refuse to discuss it, claim they’re being harassed, and block anyone who questions them, even the ones on their side. 

Almost every major larrie argument has been debunked by antis. Almost everything they post as “lol why won’t antis explain THIS then?” has BEEN explained but they refuse to acknowledge it because they know they’re wrong. Every time they say “lol antis are so pressed by this new Freddie picture!” they’re lying to cover up the fact that they’re upset and know that if they post about any doubt, they’ll get attacked by other big larries and ruin the illusion for the small larries. 

The reason you don’t see the Kardashian pap pictures and it seems like the One Direction boys are the only ones papped in the world is because you are in the fandom. So when paps are taken of the boys, they’re spread through Tumblr and end up on your dash. When paps are taken of other celebrities, unless you are in their fandom, they just go on gossip sites or google and unless it pops into your head to google their name you won’t see them.

That’s how the One Direction boys are for the GP. They are not papped way more than other celebrities. Louis is not the only celebrity who has paps follow his family to take pictures of his child. He’s also not the only celebrity who the paps do not blur his child’s face in pap photos. Google almost any celebrity baby you can think of and I can guarantee you there are pap pics. Here’s a few that I could think of: pete wentz and his sons, jessica biel & justin timberlake’s son, blue ivy, etc. 

Brooooo I’ve been into the book of life for a while now, my shading/coloring skills are shit it’s actually motivated me to do some DIGITAL drawings. I’m not enough of an online artist to make this common knowledge but this is highly rare for me to actually use my tablet. Hopefully I’ll fix that.

Anyway, I saw this one asian video (no idea what it’s called) about a little girl and her dad. The little girl is showing her dad her class essay about him, and the dad is smiling when he reads how his daughter wrote how smart, cool, funny, clever and awesome he is and some shit like that. But then the dad gets to the next part, and the girl wrote that despite all those great things…

he lies

He lies how they have money, how he has an actual job, how he is not tired, how he is not hungry. The little girl in all says in her essay that she knows the struggle her daddy is goin through and says she just wants him to live happily and the video ends in hugs and heartfelt tears.

What’s that gotta do with this pic? Well I came up with this little idea in my mind where Manolo is the tired old dad, and because I’m a sucker for little kids, I turned Maria and Joaquin into the cute little tykes. Manolo works many odd jobs for his adopted kids that were orphaned a year or two ago or something, Joaquin’s dad killed by a terrorist and Maria’s dad done in while doing his duty at the military, and both their mothers are nowhere to be found. Either they’re dead, or missing (still trying to figure that part out). Manolo is poor as fuck and uses all his savings for his two precious babies and hides the fact that he’s ready to keel over from fatigue. He most likely doesn’t hide it well enough with those bags under his eyes. Maria and Joaquin are pretty fuckin smart.

I think imma call this Papanolo AU. I got more sketches planned.

I literally can’t even go near the comments on any starbucks facebook page without getting pissed off at all the idiots that comment shit like “the employees at my starbucks told me they don’t make the oreo frappuccino!” or “i went to starbucks and they lied to me and told me they didn’t know how to make a captain crunch frappuccino i am so mad!!” or “I SAW A PICTURE ONLINE OF A HARRY POTTER BUTTERBEER FRAPPUCCINO WHY DID YOUR INCOMPETENT BARISTAS REFUSE TO MAKE IT FOR ME”

Then when they finally do find out that the secret menu is bullshit and has nothing to actually do with starbucks and learn how to order the drinks and what syrups and toppings to ask for, they sit there with looks of horror on their faces and get all bitchy as the price goes up like they thought they were going to get an ungodly amount of extra fat and sugar free of charge

I fucking hate people and their stupidity especially the ones who look at me like I’m stupid when I say I don’t know how to make a triple chocolate cheesecake frappuccino

Also why the fuck do people randomly ask for pumpkin or peppermint flavoured drinks in the middle of the summer like go fuck yourselves

"Hilary is a rape apologist" is one of those conservative lies that they just keep trying to hammer in over and over. And what's the "male gaze" issue?

Yeah since I just saw the debunking a while ago for the Hilary thing I will make a note for that. and I’ll also adjust it for the male gaze thing and say how she’s a white feminist for believing feminism needs to make space for men.

“This is wrong. You sniveling in the dirt, begging for scraps. But don’t worry- I’ll put you out of your misery.”

I saw some posts about how all the other DA:I romances except Solavellan can be comforted by their LI about their arm post-Trespasser, but what if… Solas comforts Lavellan about her arm too?

Like every night she has nightmares about the pain, about losing it, about it falling away from her body like dust, so he changes her dreams. He alters the Fade so she dreams of happier times, things that make her feel warm and loved or moments that make her laugh.

And after a while she catches on to what he’s doing, and asks if he would just stay to listen to her instead.

So he does. He listens every night to her talk about her loss, the difficulty she’s having adjusting to her new disability. He listens to her cry and mourn, but always remains silent and at a distance. And he may not answer her, he may not hold her, but he always listens. And he will listen for as long as she wishes him to hear, for as long as she needs him to.

Imagine Brock marrying you as a cover but he begins to fall for you just when you discover that he’s HYDRA – for Anonymous

“(Y/N), let me explain,” Brock began.

“Explain what?” You shouted, glaring up at your husband. “That you’re a Nazi?”

“It’s not as simple as that,” he countered. “Please.” He took a step towards you to which you backed up.

“Don’t come near me,” you snapped. You put your hands out defensively.

“I’m not going to hurt you.” You could’ve sworn you saw hurt flash behind his eyes.

Rage turned your face hot. “How can I trust—?”

“I know I’ve lied to you for a long time,” he interrupted, taking another step towards you. This time you didn’t back away. “But I’m telling you the truth. I won’t hurt you.”

For some reason, despite all the logic against it, you believed him. But that didn’t change the fact that he had secretly been apart of an underground Nazi organization for who knows how long. You had trusted him, told him all your secrets, gave him all of you. You thought he gave you same thing… But how much of it had been real?
You pushed passed him towards the door. “Goodbye, Brock.” Blinking back tears, you left your home and the love of your life, behind.

Savitars mind fucks caused Wally to go mad. Yep. And why? Because the stone. Savitar was able to mess with wally once he was fast enough because someone kept the stone. We're not saying Caitlin should be hated. We're saying things should be fair. Wally got yelled at and kicked off the team for not telling them he saw savitar. But Caitlin does the same thing (lies) and all is forgiven. Okay Wally was tortured for a week by Sav. He deserved some sympathy

I’m not saying I don’t have sympathy for Wally, of course I do, but what I’m saying is that everyone is attacking Caitlin for it when I don’t see how it’s all on her. Okay, yes, she shouldn’t have kept it a secret that she stole a piece of the stone, but by doing that she more or less kept Savitar in the Speed Force. I understand that also meant that Savitar was able to play with Wally’s mind, but really, Caitlin did everyone a favour.

If the full stone had been thrown into the Speed Force, Savitar would have been freed then and there. By keeping piece of the stone Caitlin bought them time. Savitar himself says that Wally’s youth and ego are what caused him to be weak enough for Savitar to mess with him, so Wally is just as at fault as Caitlin is.

I’m not hating on anyone, I love both character so damn much (hell, I’m a Kid Flash cosplayer), but I just really don’t like that if I go on The Flash tags all I see is complete hate and bitchiness for Caitlin.

Did you hear about mulan? It's being called not a musical and a girly martial arts movie w/o Li Shang...what is that?

I saw that offensive mess. I can’t help but think the plan will change, especially after all this backlash it’s getting. And seeing how well Beauty and the Beast did as a musical that follows the original pretty closely, I can’t imagine they wouldn’t follow the same blueprint for other remakes?? Like, don’t fix what isn’t broken. Idiots.
