when she was 11

guys, chill. when yuuri says he wants to “end this” he uses 終わる (owaru) which just means “to end” and is not something usually said when breaking up with someone (that would be 別れる wakareru). yuuri isn’t breaking up with victor, the language is purposefully ambiguous like that to fuck with people.

he’s probably talking about not wanting to do competitions any longer (did you see how exhausted he was????)

What if the name Jacquelyn is just an alias? And she really is Kit Snicket? All this time I haven’t really considered the popular fan theories, because I thought she was simply just a new character, but the more I think about it… why would her role be so secretive if she was just a new addition? And the name Jacquelyn is so similar to Jacques… what if that’s how Kit came up with the alias? And plus it’s another J.S. name (see: Zombies in the Snow poster), which only adds more to its meaning. And it seems like Jacquelyn’s role is very similar to Kit’s - follow the Baudelaire’s, guide them, send them on missions. I don’t know - I really want her to be Kit now.

so lately I’ve been reading a lot about Joyce Carol Vincent, a British woman who died alone in her flat age 38 in 2003 and her body wasn’t found for 3 years. this poor woman died completely alone no one was there for her and stupidly enough the first thing I thought when I saw photos of her is wow she’s too beautiful to die alone she doesn’t look like loner material. it was my shallow instinctual reaction. but reading more about her I realized what a truly isolated person she was her beauty couldn’t shield her from pain and suffering. 

she was born to an Indian mother and West Indian father. her parents were from Grenada her mom died when she was 11 and her dad was neglectful and possibly even abusive so her 4 sisters had to raise her, but when Joyce was 16 she left home and went to work as a secretary at big name law firms. she was beautiful smart funny cool stylish popular, this is the testimony of ppl who knew her. but inside there was always some sadness she never really got close to anyone and always lost touch with friends and drifted out of ppl’s lives after awhile.

men were always after her and followed her around and she dated a music producer who took her to dinner with Stevie Wonder she talked to Isaac Hayes on the phone was friends with Betty Wright and even shook Nelson Mandela’s hand at a concert. she was a high flyer and upwardly mobile at one point but there were certain things like possible past abuse traumatizing her she could never keep a job or stay put. one of her white bfs wouldn’t marry her bc he was scared of his racist white dad and of the stigma of having biracial kids and men used to grope her at work, and she would just quit the job and not show up the next day. Joyce was eventually beaten by a Polish boyfriend who would lock her in his apartment and she had to move into a domestic abuse shelter to escape him and after that she totally cut off contact with all friends and family. 

she moved into a subsidized flat funded by an organization for battered women and the year before she died she was hospitalized for a peptic ulcer and was suffering from asthma issues. the last time one of Joyce’s closest friends had seen her was when she was crashing on his sofa and living there. she pretended to go to work at a law office everyday but he found out she was actually a cleaning lady at a cheap motel so she became embarrassed at him finding out and left his home. she died sometime in late 2003 in her flat most likely from ulcer complications and sunk down onto the rug while wrapping Christmas presents, which she was probably going to give to her old friends who she might’ve been wanting to reconnect with. her family tried to hire a private detective to find her and he found her address, which they mailed, but of course the letters were  just piled up inside her house and she was already dead. the TV set was turned onto BBC1 and the window was slightly open and since the flat was subsidized the TV set and electricity ran for 3 years no one broke in and no one smelled her body decaying since her flat was near a dumpster and it already smelled anyways. it was only when the automatic payments from Joyce’s savings fund ran out and she owed thousands of dollars the authorities broke in and found her skeletonized body in front of the still running TV set. it’s such a tragic story and I really love Joyce as a person and wish she had a better life no one deserves to be forgotten like that

Since there’s some negativity lately, I felt the need to make a list of all the moments that JD and Veronica were truly sweet and pure, to show that most of their relationship before everything went to hell was actually really good.
1. When Veronica was all dreamy-eyed and giddy watching him during fight for me
2. When they were flirting and he opened up to her in the 7/11
3. When she tell him she knows he’s not numb inside like he thinks he is, and that he’s beautiful.
4. When they kiss in Heather’s kitchen
5. When JD tries to get Veronica away from his dad because he’s being creepy
6. When JD holds Veronica close while all the students are making fun of her
7. When Veronica gets so concerned for him after he gets into the second fight with the jocks and she helps him up and asks him if he’s okay, and then instead of answering he just takes her hand and says, “Are you?”
8. When Veronica holds JD and says “You’re not alone”
9. When she holds her hand out to him in Seventeen and says “Don’t stop looking in my eyes”.
10. When Veronica quietly tells JD to stop talking over her and he shuts up immediately and apologizes, and she kisses him.

They had some damn good times, guys.

Hey Wil, about that gifset about the oil absorbing sponge. I think it be nice to mention that GIRL that came up with it. Her name is Raíssa Müller, she's from the south of Brasil (Rio Grande do Sul) and was 11 years old when she decided to start developing a concept. She enrolled in a tec chemestry class and came up with the sponge. Since then, she won multiple awards for her project (including one from Harvard).

WOAH.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Week

I encourage you to learn a little about Childhood Cancer. It is the main cause of death by disease among children past infancy. Roughly 16,000 children a year are diagnosed, and roughly 2,000 of them die.

So many families are affected by this a year. If you can do anything to help any of these children or families- I encourage you to help, even if it’s simply hanging out with someone who’s family is going through this.

Please don’t ignore gold. 🎗

Let's be real about the most peaceful religion ever.

Muhammad had 11 wives, married Aisha when she was 6yo and raped her when she was 9yo. (Al-Bukhari)

The Quran is sexist (2.228), says that women are intellectually deficient and allow men to beat their wives (4.34)
Women are impure when they have their periods (2.222) and allows rape (2.223).
It allows slavery and sexual slaves (4.24, 33.50).

Men are worth two women and get twice what a woman get for inheritance (2.282, 4.11).
For testimony, a man equal two women.

For example, when someone is raped, you need to have four witnesses to testimony against the raper. But since women are worth half the testimony of a man, you need eight women to confirm the rape.

Homosexuality is one of the worst sins and homosexuals, according to the Qu'ran and the hadiths, have to be killed. (25.165, 24.54). It is actually compared with zoophilia.

With love, an ex-Muslim (according to the Quran, I need to die because apostasy is the WORST sin. Yes, apostasy, not rape or assassination. Allah is a kid.)

Girls From Low-Income Backgrounds Are Truanting Because They Can't Afford Sanitary Products
Sophie, a 16-year-old pupil in a central Leeds school, told BuzzFeed News she'd missed "weeks" of school because she hadn't been able to afford sanitary products. H/T Metro.
By Rose Troup Buchanan

“You don’t want to be a burden on your parents and say, ‘Hey Mum, can you buy some pads,’ because you feel like she has other priorities so it’s not really something you want to go talk about.”

The teen, who started her period when she was 11, also said she had no idea what was happening at the time because she hadn’t had any sex education. “I literally had nobody. I didn’t feel like I could trust anybody, not even my own mother –because I didn’t have that kind of relationship with her.”

She added: “It feels really uncomfortable physically and then emotionally it became really difficult because those kinds of things put a strain on you because you don’t know what to say.”

Leslie, 52, said: “It might be an absolutely huge problem that no one has actually thought about, because it’s still such a taboo subject that it’s not talked about.”

“It’s a policy problem: We can give out free condoms to boys, but we can’t give out free tampons to girls. What’s that all about?”

“It is extremely worrying to find that some young women cannot attend school for lack of sanitary products. The basics that women and girls need are simply not there.”

This is what the stigma and lack of education surrounding menstruation does to girls. Education is having to be sacrificed because girls can’t access sanitary products, in England, in 2017.

1. Don’t let her go to sleep without hearing your voice.
2. Flowers are never a bad idea, even when you don’t have a reason for giving them
3. Reassure her you love her. She’ll always worry about you leaving, you’ll learn why.
4. She’ll talk about her past when she’s ready, don’t push it.
5. Telling her she’s beautiful never hurts.
6. Give in sometimes even when you shouldn’t. She’s fought her whole life it’s the last thing she wants to do.
7. She likes when you rub her back, but don’t touch her feet
8. When she shaves her legs insist on feeling them.
9. She hates to repeat herself, so listen closely.
10. Tell her stories about when you first fell for her, she loves to hear them
11. Let her know when your having a bad day, not only will she appreciate the warning, she’ll do all she can to make it better.
12. When you count your blessings, count her twice. You are so lucky to have her in your life.
—  How to keep her

Jack Zimmermann thought he learned everything about leading a team through his time in the Q. However, he realized he was very wrong when he first met a rag tag group of kids who were eager to call him Coach Z.

He never had to learn to be patient around players of his own age. If they were being a shitty player, he could just call them out on it. This was not the case with his team. Most of the kids were 10 or 11 years old. Half of them had never played before. Some hadn’t even been on ice before he started coaching. It was hard for him to be stern, yet gentle with them at the beginning. Eventually, he’d found a good balance. Those who he saw half-assing on the ice, regardless of whatever skill, were scolded. But those who were giving it the Coach Z 110%, were always praised. There may or may not have been candy for good playing. 

Jack had never felt prouder when he taught Hoots, an 11 year old, how to skate backwards. The way his face lit up when he said “I’m doing it!” is still one of Jack’s favorite memories. The next practice, Hoots had sprinted over to Jack and said that he had been practicing his backward skating all weekend. 

Jack’s hockey heart grew three sizes that day. 

Working with team inspired Jack to be better. If these kids were working hard, why couldn’t he? There were many times when Jack would be practicing before the kids showed up, only to not keep track of the time. There were lots of wolf whistles and cheers when he forgot to keep track of the time. 


When he decided to go to Samwell, he had been with his team for 2 years. He’d seen a lot of them change a lot on and off the ice. He promised he would keep in touch, but it was pretty infrequent. He heard from Lotter, an aggressive 9 year old, the most. In middle school, her shinnies had turned into something of an unofficial fight club. Zoomer stopped hockey in high school to join theatre, apparently he’s quite the good actor. He made sure to go to one of his musicals when he was on spring break. He got letters from at least half of the kids at least once or twice a year. Some of them were facebook friends. But again, it’s hard to keep in touch with 20 tweens. 

That didn’t stop them from all showing up in Falconers gear the first time he played in Montreal. Jack swore they cheered the loudest out of anyone in the arena. He couldn’t stop thinking about how they’d all grown so much. Most of them were in high school right now. Some were even in university. It was crazy. Once the game ended, he met with all of them. Of COURSE it ended in a big ass dog pile. 


After that, he didn’t expect to really interact with them ever again. That is, until Eric Bittle’s senior year. He is giving his official Welcome Tour of the Haus when one of the Frogs (or…as Bitty calls them, eggs. Seriously, Bitty.) asks if Jack Zimmermann really lived here. 

“Of course he did! He lived right across the hall from me”

“Cool!” the frog starts “I really hope I get to meet him again”

“Again?”

“Yeah. He coached my team in Montreal when I was 11. He taught me how to skate and everything!”

Bitty’s whole expression changed. “You wouldn’t happen to be called Hoots, would you?”

The frog nodded “Yeah! My name is Hoots!”

This is KitKat, our lovely rescued old lady. We adopted her when she was 11, and she has loved us for it ever since. She loves us by sitting on us in precarious places at the worst time. She always looks grumpy in photos, but don’t let that fool you. She’s probably purring loudly in all of them.

I love how ronaldo is expecting a baby by an 'unknown American' .. like that literally describes briana yet we knew she was pregnant when she was 9-11 weeks, not even when you'd be telling family and friends, ronaldo's surrogate is 'heavily pregnant' and due to give birth 'very soon', like this just shows how easy it is to hide a pregnancy especially with some unknown person being the one pregnant, yet people think the babygate situation is normal and not a publicity stunt???

people have been speculating for months and months that cricky were going to go the surrogate route again and have another kid soon i’m just like :’)

(and yeah talk about drastically different circumstances)

Image description: a picture of Disney’s version of Pocahontas with the following words:
“Pocahontas was a nickname (meaning The Naughty One). Her real name was Matoaka. If we believe John Smith’s account of events, she would have been 10 or 11 when she met him. That’s hardly a romantic scenario, unless you’re a pedophile.

Pocahontas was kidnapped by the English. She was imprisoned at the Jamestown colony for over a year, where she was assaulted. While still a teenager, our young heroine married John Rolfe. Marrying the Englishman was a condition of her release.

Pocahontas was then taken to England, as a sort of living specimen and advertisement for colonization. She died at the tender age of 21, unaware that the English would create the Pocahontas Myth; one where she was the good Indian who rescued the whiteman from her brutish, savage Tribesmen.

This myth birthed many colonial stereotypes of Native people and was used as justification to make war against us.”
