what was i doing at 23

anonymous asked:

I know this is kind of a silly question since there's no true way of knowing (and it'll be revealed next month anyway), but how do you think the first few episodes of the anime will be split from the chapters what events could fit into say.. the first 5 episodes? Do you think it could go up to Ymir's revelation or all the way up to the reveal of Bertholdt and Reiner? Idkw but this has just been bothering me all week and I can't seem to get it out of my head. What are your thoughts/predictions?

Ah, I have no idea, but awhile back someone made a careful list of how season one of the anime covered the manga (link).

Season one covered 33 manga chapters. Season two will like cover 36 or 37 chapters. (I think it will go through chapter 71). So roughly 1.5 chapters per episode plus extra content. 

Announcement time!

Honestly a lot of you are just gonna be like “k whatever”

Some people may unfollow me?

I hope though, that at least some of you are gonna be excited with me!

So I said this same thing when I started my blog, but then it just didn’t happen at all.

As of today, March 23,2017… I am officially vegan again!!! I’ve had a bumpy ride with being vegan and vegetarian but I’ve decided that it’s something I definitely need in my life again.  

I’m just in the mindset lately where like I’ve been thinking “why the hell am I eating this, I don’t need to be eating this meat” or “they literally make chocolate non dairy milks what am i doing?” 

Yep so that’s pretty much it, if anyone ever wants to talk or ask questions about veganism honestly please message me because talking about it just gets me so pumped up!

Last month, I sent a handful of letters to various hospitals and police departments in the area and elsewhere about their accommodations. Out of around 13 or so letters total, I’ve only received one reply from a police department.

I’m posting this so I can show what people have to say and to keep track of who cares enough to let us know how things operate. I’m aware that establishments can say things and not really follow through, so make of that what you will, but I still wanted to post this anyway.

The letter reads (and I’m using this as an image description for blind viewers as well):

Dear Miss Poynter:

Thank you for your letter and concern. In my 23 year career I have dealt with numerous individuals that have special medical needs, to include deaf people. I do try to understand and can empathize.

In response to your comment of individuals being beaten and tased by officers that knew they were deaf, I would find this difficult to comprehend. Lack of communication is another roadblock in our job, but it does not give an officer the ability or right to use unnecessary force. I can’t respond to individual situations without knowing the reference. I know that officers, being human, are capable of making mistakes and should constantly strive to improve our understanding and capabilities. The vast majority of the roughly three-quarters of a million law enforcement officers in this nation consistently do the right thing, always.

Officers do receive training in dealing with special needs individuals. This will occur in basic law enforcement training and may occur also in regular in-service training classes within an agency. The Statement Department of Health and Human Services has provided picture booklets for officers specifically for dealing with deaf people. I can speak for this department and say that physical force is not used for lack of compliance due to communication problems. Force is used to counter a physical threat. This department does utilize written rights forms. We further do use interpreters if a deaf person is arrested. This department tries to meet community needs in unique ways, and we have created a special needs registry. This is done to aid officers in immediate identification of locations, vehicles, or persons that have some physical or mental impairment.

This department, just like the profession, strives to improve relationships with everyone in the community. A hearing impairment only means that a common ground must be found between the police and the community. Your letter is appreciated.

Sincerely;

Lt. S.D. HIldebrand

20, Arkhe scientists to Bach

things you said that i wasn’t meant to hear // things said

he was made to be their perfect instrument, he knew that well. was it not their goal that he made his? he had fallen asleep, it seemed, the music fading in his head, darkness replacing gilded light. he’d known the price that he’d pay for his ideals, but he’d not expected this. it had been quite some time since he’d felt like this ( fully aware, but he couldn’t show it ), was this not what he’d felt like while they did their horrid tests? 

what’s its condition? a voice cut through the silence ( that of an older male ), senses flaring but still, he felt disconnected.  the arkheloid has a steady pulse, all central nervous systems seem to be active.  another voice, younger ( likely, a youth just hired )  stop — i’m not your instrument, i’m alive, i’m alive —  what about its peripheral system? why won’t it move? shock it again, professor otowa said that it has a body that functions just as any other naturally born human being. shock it again, raise the goddamn voltage if you have to. the familiar sound of that device sent his mind into what could only be seen as anxiety, the following jolt felt like agony.  anything?  stop — it hurts — i’m not your instrument —  it feels the shock, but shows no ability to move otherwise. something’s wrong with its motor neurons. wait —  

he heard commotion, faint murmurs, they were preparing for another test —  wait, stop!! look at these scans, the arkheloid is displaying conscious brain activity. this time, it was the voice of a young woman —  mitsuru, that’s irrelevant, mitsuru… did she want them to stop hurting him? her comment seemed to cause more irritability in the other scientists than do any good —  it’s a goddamn machine, mitsuru, you even helped design it. it can’t possibly be conscious, & even if it is, it’s a machine & all machines can be reset. mitsuru… she designed me… am i not human? i’m not a machine, i can feel — i’m here, i’m here — stop!!  you can’t reprogram anything that’s broken, we’re already behind schedule, right? we have to try something else before we’re back at square one!! mitsuru… are you trying to protect me?  god dammit, if there’s no response with this sort of testing, try something else!! clearly, the alkheloid must be able to hear us, that’s the only way that these charts would look like this — why don’t we try something like music?  they played him music, his music & the golden light broke through the darkness — 

he’d caught a glimpse of freedom, only to find himself shackled again, familiar sound flooding his senses ( this was not how his world was supposed to end, this was not the prelude that he’d yearned for ) —  this is my music…  

mitsuru — she looked at him with a terrible & twisted love in her eyes  you said my name — you said my name for the first time — !!  

my name is mitsuru, i’m going to give you music; they’re not going to do those tests anymore, they won’t hurt you anymore. i wonder… when you wake up, will you remember my name? i hope you do. i think i’d like it if you said my name, even if it’s only once.

3.23.2017 KILLED legs today with another half mile warm up, Whitney Simmons leg workout, and I was planning on running more than a mile today but my legs were so give out I only made one lap, HA. Really digging Whitney’s workouts on YouTube and I’d totally recommend them if you’re new to working out or if you’ve been working out a long time. Picked up some supplements today as well so I’m excited to see what they can do for my body.

I was tagged by @cyrilconnelly(Thank you lovely!)

Rules: tag 9 people you want to know better

How old are you?

23

What are you talented at?

I’m good at procrastinating.

What’s a big goal you’re working towards (or have already achieved)?

I’m working toward a more stable job, and hopefully eventually writing my own book!

What’s your aesthetic?

Red leather jacket, dark blue jeans, a plaid shirt with an army green tank underneath, worn brown boots, whiskey, a tube of matte red lipstick, chipped nail polish, and windswept hair.

Do you collect anything?

I used to collect bouncy balls and rocks, but now my collections are limited to makeup and keychains.

What’s a topic you always talk about?

Supernatural. It truly has taken over my life- but you can always talk Marvel with me and I’m down with that too.

What’s a pet peeve of yours?

I hate when people touch my stuff. If it ain’t yours, don’t touch it!

Good advice to give?

Let go of the anger- it’s not helping you. Anger clouds your judgement, and it’s only a temporary feeling. Decisions you make when angry though, are often times permanent. Let it go, Elsa.

What are three songs you’d recommend?

  1. Of Monsters And Men - Wolves Without Teeth
  2. Poison - Nothin’ But A Good Time
  3. Ricky Martin - La Mordidita

Me, With Anime

*during episode 1* 

I wonder what this is about? Am I even going to like it?

*during episode 4, leaning forward to the screen*

Wow, this is really good. I didn’t know I’d like it this much!

*during episode 8, clutching a pillow and staring wide eyed at the screen*

Oh my god, oh my god, I can’t believe that happened! And I’m getting close to the end! No, there has to be more episodes, I just haven’t found them all!

*during episode 12-13, using pillow to wipe tears away*

No, no, it can’t be over! In 23 minutes it’s going to be over! And then what do I do! I can’t live without this anime! I can’t function, I can’t do anything! I know! I’ll rewatch it! Yes! The minute this episode ends, I’ll go back to episode 1 and start it all over.

*a few days later, pillow is finally dry from all the tears*

Huh, look at that anime. I wonder what it’s about? Nothing can replace or beat the one I just rewatched. Nothing could ever fill the hole it’s left in my heart from no more new episodes.

Rinse and repeat for all time.

Did you fill the streets with protest when Democracy was stolen?
What did you *do* once you knew?”

Exploring Ethiopia with Photographer Eyerusalem Jiregna

This post is in celebration of Women’s History Month. Throughout March, we’ll be highlighting the stories of women doing extraordinary things around the world.

Born and raised in Ethiopia’s capital city, Addis Ababa, 23-year-old Eyerusalem Jiregna (@eyerusalem_a_jiregna) knows a thing or two about fast-paced environments. But she also hopes that her photographs might inspire people to pause and look — really look — at the visual wonders that could be waiting around any corner. “I know that people have busy lives,” Eyerusalem says, “but when we’re rushing everywhere, we’re not seeing what’s around us. I want people to appreciate what’s in front of them, and I hope that my pictures can help make that happen.”

While she finds photographing people rewarding, Eyerusalem does find herself photographing women and girls more often than men. “Motherhood in Ethiopia is so significant, and the women here work so hard,” she says. “I want to try to share their stories through my photographs.”

Do you know that feeling where you just wanted to say “I don’t know what to do” over and over again? Because you literally don’t have an idea what to do anymore and you feel like you’re trapped in this black black void of mess you can’t seem to get out of no matter how fast you tried to run?

I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do anymore. And you know what, if you’re ever feeling this, you’re not alone. I’m so deep and stuck in this moment too. I don’t know what to do.

Connie Maheswaran in every episode | Season 2, Episode 23, Steven’s Birthday

↳  “Yeah, I just want to be there for Steven. Don’t worry Steven, it doesn’t matter to me what age it seems like you are, I wanna hang out with you no matter what. Your dad still has his carwash and the gems have to do gem stuff so I’ll watch you when they’re not around. I can come see you after I’m done training with Pearl too. Doesn’t that sound fun?”
