OKAY BUT YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND I DID MY JUNIOR RESEARCH PAPER ON FREAKING MARTIN LUTHER AND THE 95 THESES SO THE FACT THAT SAM CHOSE THAT EXACT SUBJECT TO THROW DEAN OFF IS JUST FREAKING AWESOME TO ME.
im doing volunteer work this weekend for my old dance academy. everyone there knows me, even people that i don’t know. they all know who i am because i used to be one of the most advanced dancers in the whole school
and today a grandmother of a little girl who i think is cool tbh came up to me and asked me if i missed dancing and when i said yes she said “good. you were really really good. you danced so beautifully” and then before i walked away she told me that i was such a good role model. she emphasized this. she told me her granddaughter looked up to me so much
i didn’t even know this woman, you know??
i almost started crying it was the best feeling in the world. it makes me feel good about myself.
i am dirt poor and i struggle with my weight and my confidence but i am a role model and i think if i never accomplish anything else in life, its worth it to know that people i don’t even know think so highly of me. that i’ve made that sort of impact on someone. im so blessed.
i. i will burn your kingdom down if you try to conquer
me and mine ii. when all we knew wasn’t stolen, there was nothing
real to lose iii. we drowned in words when we needed a hand iv. every lesson we learned took so long, but it made us
strong v. what can we say now? our mouths only lying vi. a million lies that now define us all together vii. keeping the thought in our minds, one day life will be kind viii. i was born in a thunderstorm, i grew up overnight ix. somewhere weakness is our strength, and i’ll die searching for it x. we waged a war with hell, and look, we still survive xi. they’ll name a city after us, then later say it’s all
our fault xii. how can we have so far to go? / / / listen
This is a study in the power of the gaze. Who is really observing whom? Is it creepy Santa spying on a little girl? Is it the girl with her materialistic lust in her eyes? Or is the doll the true observer, shaming the others by her awareness that they can each only find fulfillment in the control and possession of others’ emotions?
i call you to tell you that i never loved you more than when i was on the brink of leaving. your love reached down into the dark and plucked me out, set me on a road to healing but just because i owe you my life
does not mean you are entitled to the rest of it.
breathe in deep. i am not the stone you took me to be, i am not the strong waterfall you always saw, i am only a broken little girl who wanted to hide from the dark in your arms for a time, and that time has passed.
i wanted to thank you for giving me everything but all that spilled out were apologies. i’m sorry. you should have loved someone better.
They made a movie version of that scary short “lights out” but they tried to explain with logic and medicine how the creature exists and it just makes the whole thing silly.
I’m totally ok with a supernatural entity haunting someone, bc supernatural beings don’t follow the same rules as the rest of the natural world, but I’m not ok with a little girl who was allergic to light? receiving an experimental treatment at a psych facility and now she is somehow a supernatural being living in the shadows and killing people.
oh boy! Yall really want a rant from me tonight don’t yall?
*rubs hands together*
The animation wasn’t as great as everyone claims it to be. It was better than season 1&2 but it still need more improvement because it felt like they did enough just to get by. In all honestly I caught more mistakes with season 3 than season 1&2. The character designs was cute at it’s best because honestly they looked skinnier around the waist than they did in season 1&2. I guess having a line for a nose and mouth is more applling than defined lips with age appropriate gloss on them. The whole “ but they look like they are 14 now” excuse is a copout for the simple fact that in no version of SM they ever look like they was 14.Even in the live action adaptions every actress who has played Usagi and the girls was a little bit older than 14.( 17 years old at best becasue of labor laws) In all honestly they really don’t look like 14 but 12 years old in some shots.Also this is anime where a character never looks like the age they really supposed to be. That excuse has ran it’s damn course. The attacks look like copying and paste from the 90’s anime instead having a new spin to them while only paying homage was unnecessary. The new 2d transformations were nice ( altho they sort of look like the other ones a little) but they feel very distant. I don’t feel like I’m in the plane with them but in the nose bleed seats that couldn’t t see shit. It didn’t feel close and personal anymore to me. Also they were faster than the 3d ones which show case each girl off. Over all it was good but not as great everyone makes it out to be. Toei did enough just for people to get off their backs but it still bit them in the ass since the BD sales tanked.
I recommend Igraine the Brave by Cornelia Funke to the moon and back!!! It's a sweet little children's book about a girl who is more interested in adventure than she is in magic and she goes on a quest to change her parents back into humans after a magical mishap.
