when i saw 'we' i mean

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm super happy I found this blog. I've been teaching myself the Korean writing system, and I've gotten pretty good at reading, but sometimes when I write I have trouble deciding where to separate the syllables. For ex. I saw the name "Hyuna" written as 현아 instead of something like 혀나 . Idk if this question even makes sense but is there a pattern or rule for determining where syllables start/end? Does it determine the meaning of a word?

Hello^^ 

It’s wonderful that you are learning Korean so well!!

We’re talking about something called “받침” which is the final consonant of a syllable block. It’s always on the bottom centre of the syllable block. 

• Basically, when spoken, you can tell that the pronunciation sounds more like “hyo” and then “nah” (혀나) than it does “hyun” and then “ah” (현아).

It’s the same with:

• 먹어 = “mo” and then “go” (closer to 머거). 

This is because whenever a consonant in the final position is followed by a vowel, the consonant sound moves over to the syllable with the vowel, thus giving you something that sounds like “혀나” and “머거”.

• 먹다 = “mok” and then “da”. Two consonants = no moving of the sound.


Here are some handy links to some websites and articles that might help:

This link will take you to a page with clickable Korean consonants. Clicking on each one will take you so a screen with examples of words and their pronunciation [which will be inside these brackets]. You can also access similar information to do with vowels etc in the top right corner. 


As you can see in this image, the order of pronunciation is labelled clearly. You just need to remember the rules mentioned above and in the resources we’ve linked for you :-)  


We hoped our explanation helped, and that the resources come in handy. Good luck!!

I'm not trying to be rude when I say this. I saw your ask abt how that person wanted seasons or pets but the sims team did say that they were going in the different direction in ts4. Idk I just think people need to remember that??? It would make a lot of people less angry about not getting what they wanted (not saying that person was angry just some people are) idk I had to rant sorry if this came off rude!!! I didn't mean it that way at all!!

Hello!

You’re right but when i saw that Bowling Night was the new stuff pack i was a little dissapointed because i think seasons are important, it’s not about different directions, i mean seasons are the best way to make this game realistic and alive.

I know that the team said it but it would be so nice to have them because i feel (it’s just my personal opinion) that we need them in some way.

Do we really need bowling, i mean, it’ll make our game 100% incredibly better? i don’t think so, even if there are some interesting decor items.

I feel like i need something that makes my jaw drop lol

You’re not rude at all, i appreciated your opinion because we can’t have all the same opinions. Have a beautiful day!

I hate it when americans or anyone else non german uses german without looking up how or the meaning of the words.

I’ll punch you if you use “ach” like the canadian “eh” its not even the same

YURIO - YURI ON ICE META - Yuri Plisetsky and His Crush on the Other Yuri?

Recently, I saw an interview from Kubo-sensei which suggests Yurio might have a crush on Yuri. I had been thinking the same thing for a while, but it wasn’t until I saw this and yuuriyurio-plisetsky’s meta that I decided to get these thoughts out on paper. So here is my contribution to the Yuri Plisetsky meta!

I’m going to dare to say that Yurio noticed Yuuri before Viktor did.

We’re taking this from the top. Back into history when Yurio was a wee lad. Now, Yuuri is 8 years older than Yurio, so that means he’s probably been in the senior division of competitive skating for most of Yurio’s skating career. I believe that Yurio has admired Yuuri for a long time, the same way Yuuri admired Viktor when he was young.

Why would little Russian Yurio even notice a Japanese figure skater, who didn’t even make GPF until 23? Well, because they have the same name. That alone would have drawn Yurio’s attention. He even makes a point to emphasize that when they first meet and to make sure Yuuri knows who he is.

Maybe its like you said before, all of us being cracked open. Like each of us starts out as a watertight vessel. And then things happen - these people leave us, or don’t love us, or don’t get us, or we don’t get them, and we lose and fail and hurt one another. And the vessel starts to crack in places. And I mean, yeah once the vessel cracks open, the end becomes inevitable. Once it starts to rain inside the Osprey, it will never be remodeled. But there is all this time between when the cracks start to open up and when we finally fall apart. And its only that time that we see one another, because we see out of ourselves through our cracks and into others through theirs. When did we see each other face to face? Not until you saw into my cracks and I saw into yours. Before that we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade, but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.

I’m just trying to recall the last time we actually saw Dean do anything sexual with anyone. Because in 12.11, we know he had the hots for Larry, and after going for his ride he “blew off steam” with the waitress. But what does that mean? And the fact that he was supposed to meet her after her shift but never showed… for what? Round two? To finish what they started? It is a mystery. I mean, she didn’t seem all that invested, just pissed that he blew her off when she finally did see him again.

And ALL of that technically happened BEFORE HE WAS HEXED!

So, sound mind, consenting adults, and all that. And when she realized that he couldn’t remember because he’d been “roofied,” she was immediately concerned that she may have taken advantage of him and apologized.

I mean, that’s fantastic.

When the heck has Dean ever gotten an apology like that?

This is pretty far removed from “mistakes were made.”

Before this, he had some sort of success in 11.13 before then striking out later in the episode.

And before that was 11.04, where those mistakes were made, whatever that means.

But even with his memories removed and therefore no burden of guilt, we didn’t actually see him hit on anyone the entire episode. He was polite and smiley with people, complimenting Rowena’s hair for being “bouncy” oh my god. Being friendly with the waitress, even smiling at Sam when he had no freaking clue who HE was, let alone who Sam was. Dean’s default without his memories seems to be cheerfully pleasant with a zest for life (and waffles) (and Larry).

So, not a womanizing jerk dudebro.

He thought his own damn life hunting monsters with their angel best friend sounded awesome. He noticed people, but he didn’t have that performing persona. And he unashamedly admitted to loving A DISNEY CARTOON FISH. I mean… 

This was all just so refreshing in a really twisted and terrifying sort of way…

So... I have a crested gecko now, I guess!

I went to Tinley with the intent of picking up a nice birthday snake, if I saw one I really liked. I got Bram, my Malagasy hognose, on Saturday.

But then on Sunday, I walked out of the show with a crested gecko. I didn’t mean to- we were leaving the show and heading back to the train station when I picked him up. There was this lady in the bathroom with a crestie in a kritter keeper and I said how cute he was- and she said she was trying to get rid of him. He was a geck she’d bought her son back in October and she wanted to sell him (which isn’t allowed, non-vendors are not allowed to sell animals at the show) because her son had gotten bored of him. She then was telling me about how her son “loved” his crested geckos- he had five of them he kept together, but then one of them died, and he was afraid to take this one out and hold him because he was the one that harassed the others, being the biggest male in the tank- and yes, there were multiple males being kept together. She then mentions- and it’s after 4, the show’s technically over- that if she can’t find a buyer, she was just going to let him go in the parking lot and tell her son she found him a new home. I offered to take him off her hands, but she wasn’t going to let him go to to a new home without some money.

At that point, I seriously debated just grabbing the kritter keeper and sprinting out of there. But instead I offered her a handful of cash, which she made a big deal about taking- like I should be thanking her for how little I was getting him for- but at that point, I didn’t care, I just wanted to get him away from her. I feel kinda bad because I always tell people not to get impulse pets, but at the same time I don’t feel bad because she was going to let him go in the parking lot. I know I gave her money, but I’m more inclined to see this as a rescue situation than a purchase.

So yeah. This is him!

I have no idea how old he is, who produced him, or anything like that. All I know is that he’s fairly friendly- the lady said that her son was afraid to get him out because he was bitey, but he walked all over my hand and accepted water and gecko diet without any fuss when I took him out to weigh him- he still has his tail, and his calcium sacs are basically depleted. I know that males are typically going to have smaller calcium reserves, but I did want to check because I’ve got no history about what he’s been eating. Apparently he’s “picky” and won’t eat anything but watermelon Pangea, but he’s already had some Pangea+bugs with me, so I think it’s got more to do with the stress of cohabitation than anything else. He seems to be in decent health- other than low calcium and a bit of what appears to be nose rub, he seems fine! He weighs 48 grams and doesn’t seem to want to murder me, despite being told that he was “bitey” and “a psycho.” He’s got a vet appointment on Wednesday- I’m getting a full blood panel and an x-ray because I’m worried about MBD. If he poops before then, I’ll get him a fecal, but if he doesn’t, I’ll just get one when I can. 

This is the cage I set up for him today. It needs more work- definitely more perches, and I might swap out the moss for something solid- but he’s being QTd in the closet right now, so I’ve got some time to pick up some more things! Definitely more horizontal perches and places to hide- maybe more leaves and foliage, too!

I still haven’t named him, though.

Let’s take a time to talk about this part of the movie?

First of all, let’s appreciate how they laugh together. Adorable.

Let’s remember, Gaston was going through a bad time after being rejected by Belle. He was frustrated, and his (stupid) huge self esteem was shaken.
But then comes Lefou and cheers him up until he’s laughing again. We can see how Lefou affects Gaston’s mood (later, on the nose-booping scene, he even tranquilizes Gaston for a moment - which doesn’t last,but still).

What I mean is: no one has THIS power over Gaston. 
Gaston even says “You’re the best” to him (can we even imagine Gaston saying that to anything besides a mirror?).
And I don’t think this was a “you kiss my ass, so I like you” compliment. I mean, Gaston even asked how Lefou wasn’t dating any girl, so I understand he really saw the boy as a good company even when he was not singing about how great Gaston is.

Then I’m here to say
No one makes Gaston love a person (other than himself) like Lefou.

Aww, Halloween has come to Denmark too, but with little Danish twists of course.

Here the kids say “Slik eller ballade” which means “Candy or trouble”

Also, we have a few American and British families in this area and their kids rarely wear costumes but seem to be the most excited. I assume they didn’t know we celebrate it here too, so when they saw kids trick n’ treating they were like “Oh shit! I gotta go NOW!”

Edit: Haha, a little girl just said “Candy or death!” with the biggest smile.
  • what she says: I'm Fine
  • what she means: Will Dan Howell ever wear his pokemon trainer outfit? it's been over 5 months since he's had the complete look™ but he still hasn't worn it. does he wear his trainer outfit when he's playing pokemon by himself or with phil? does phil get to see Dan's pokemon outfit-

I remember when YOI was still airing and as we got further and further into the series and victuuri was getting more flirty and touchy, there was a joke going around about how the show seemed to top itself in terms of gay each episode. So after the kiss, we were all pumped to see where episode 8 would go, and just how far and where they would take it onscreen. And then the episode actually aired and…it disappointed people?

I mean, the episode was narrated by Yuri and we mostly saw victuuri from an outside perspective. There wasn’t a lot of touching, there wasn’t a kiss, and no onscreen cuddling like we got used to seeing. I saw that just after the episode came out, people were a little sullen that the series didn’t “top” itself again. I didn’t really comment at the time because I couldn’t find the vocabulary to adequately explain why I loved so many moments in the episode, but I think I’ve found it.

I love episode 8 because it was intimate. I’m talking about Victor and Yuuri specifically here, of course. There was a tangible emotional shift. They were more in sync than ever before:

Yuuri was more openly expressive:

And Yuuri’s eros was the best it’s ever been!

Also, we got some little moments that I couldn’t help but enjoy, some that were a bit, well, provocative:

But also a fantastic moment of emotional development on both sides:

Victor and Yuuri allow themselves to separate! It’s so important in their relationship that they stay individuals; their success can’t become dependent on the other. (insert blatant mirrors that are mickey and sara here)

The episode felt different, Victor and Yuuri’s relationship felt more comfortable, and I found it so satisfying to see them that way after all they had gone through to get there.

(also, i loved the look into yuri’s life. that boy’s motivations, especially at the time, could be confusing)

There’s so much dissonance around the boys. They’re portrayed as dicks in the press but everybody who’s met them sing praises and speak well of them. We have the fans that believe everything about them, but somehow don’t believe they’re dicks. We have the fans that question things based in years of bullshit, but are vilified for picking up what the boys put down themselves…

Can we ever get some consistency here? Can that be a thing one day? in less than 20 years preferably?

Aaargh, what does this even mean? This girl texted me earlier to ask how I’m doing, so I told her I just saw Moonlight and have been pretty drained from 12 hour workdays and little privacy. Her only response was to say, “Ship, I would like to hear from you when possible.”

I’m trying to stay friendly with her without inviting too much emotional intimacy. I’ve known her since October and she’s been using me like a sort of unpaid therapist, without hearing my own thoughts in return. She thinks we’re close friends ‘cause she’s told me every emotion she’s ever had, but she knows almost nothing about me.

TVLINE: Assuming Wes is dead, his story is one of such tragedy: He was conceived when his mother was raped by her employer. He watched his mother die after she slit her own throat. He saw his biological father take a bullet to the head just as they were meeting for the first time. His girlfriend was murdered. He murdered Sam. And now he dies before he even graduates law school. As an actor, what’s your feeling seeing Wes get murdered without every really finding happiness?

Alfred: Yeah. I mean, he never caught a break, did he? I think he did find happiness in a way, but that’s reality, you’re never really out of the woods, are you? In life, and certainly not on this show. He’d put himself on track a bit this season. He was with Laurel, and that was so good for him. He was edging closer to that happy ending he was chasing. But he just gets brought down by something from his past — it’s very bleak that it ends that way. [Laughs]

At first, my reaction was that I was bummed for myself. But the more I thought about it, I was like, “Wes! F—-n’ Wes, man! The poor guy! This is too much!” That’s what started to get me down. Tragedy upon tragedy. When you list it all like you just did, it’s like, “What the hell? Come on!”

For @bear105…reader is a genius as requested. Enjoy!

“So,” Y/N drawled as they twirled in her chair, facing Tony, “when you say cooked, you mean…?”
“Fried,” Tony replied, looking disgusted, “Shriveled. Barely recognizable.”

Y/N cringed as Ziva quirked a brow. Tim looked down. He glanced around at his coworkers.

“I can’t imagine how that felt,” Tim commented.
“Not pleasant,” Y/N commented, “I mean, an oven is bad enough, but a flamethrower?”
“I was twelve,” Tony rebutted, “and it was an accident.”
Ziva chuckled. “Tell that to the bird.”

Right so I know Collateral Beauty got really bad reviews, but I saw it today. The trailer intrigued me and a friend wanted someone to see it with her.

I don’t understand why it got bad reviews.

I mean, sure, I understand that a lot of those negative reviews were “the plot is stupid” or “the trailer was misleading,” but I honestly feel like people are missing the point. I feel like our society is so much like WHEN IS SOMETHING GOING TO BLOW UP THOUGH? Can’t we be patient with a film that is relying on dialogue rather than special effects?

Or maybe it’s because people don’t want to face harsh realities of life. Maybe we would just rather watch something entertaining and not think about the hard stuff and that’s why there’s poor reviews.

I felt the pain of the characters here. I understood we were dealing with abstractions. There were moments when what was said felt so honest and so real that it cut like a knife. “Yes, I was there in her laugh, but I’m also here in your pain.” “You don’t get to choose who you love.” Which brings me to the point of…

Collateral Beauty. What the heck is that term supposed to mean? People were saying wow, what a dumb phrase that means nothing. I’m not 100% sure what it means but it did get me a bit teary eyed (though I didn’t actually cry because I never cry at movies). I think it means that in every loss is beauty. In every blessing there is a curse. In every curse, there’s a hidden blessing. Yes, you lost someone you loved. But how wonderful, how beautiful is it, that she was there? That she existed? That you loved her and she you? It’s bittersweet. It’s loss that defines some thing’s value. Loss… value. The shadow proves the sunshine. Our lives are so fragile and people die every day, yet that fact that we are so fragile and our time so limited gives us a sense of beauty in life and loss and death.

So that’s what I think it’s about. Pain is the proof of beauty and love.

Or maybe the movie really did suck. But I thought it was wonderful.
