wow-so-clever

I keep thinking how knowing Even had a crush on Isak the first day he saw him changes the whole dynamic of the story, or at least it does to me.

The first times we see Isak and Even sharing glances (first in the cafeteria, then outside, then at the kosegruppa meeting) I thought Even was this type of guy who looks at you in the coolest way ever just because he feels he is able to get your attention.

When they met in the bathroom and Even did the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen anyone do when they are flirting with someone, I thought he was just being a pain in the ass since he noticed Isak always looking at him and he wanted the attention I guessed he thought he deserved.

And then in the bench… Well, that scene kind of threw my theory out of the window, because Even totally lost his coolness: he was almost shy and nervous. But I guess I was too caught up by his looks and appearance I didn’t really pay attention.

But Even confessing Isak he saw him the very first day at school and that he went to the kosegruppa meeting just to meet Isak made me realize all those times weren’t about Even being cool, they were about Even trying to look cool. It was always about a boy doing embarrassing and not-so-slick things to get the other boy’s attention. When I thought Isak was getting caught by Even staring at him, it was actually Even trying to act laid back when he realized his crush was looking at him. When Even approached Isak on the hallway to ask him if he was going to the Halloween party, it wasn’t him being casual, it was him being hopeful. When Even suggested Isak going to the pool, it wasn’t him recreating his favorite movie scene just to be the coolest guy, it was him planning the whole thing to finally act on his feelings for his crush.

And you know why just a simple scene was able to threw away what I thought was real? Because Skam just doesn’t make seasons from one character’s perspective in order for us to get to really know them, Skam does it to show that not everything is what we think it is: we don’t see life at it is, we see it in our own way. And that’s as beautiful as it is scary, isn’t it?

J: If we don’t think of a plan redhead will be expelled
Z: Actually it’s very simple only need to prove on that day he wasn’t at school.

Jian yi leaps on zhan and ruffles his hair. ‘Wow you are so clever~ I’m going to prove that.  Zhan replied ‘What you say is not persuasive! we need a witness!’

Xiao Hui shows up and says nervously ‘I-I have proof that should be helpful..’

They drag her to the office and Jian yi barges in and starts yellin ‘Teacher mo guan shan is innocent what’s on the bulletin board is what you made up!  Actually he wasn’t near the school, Luckily someone took a photo, the photo clearly shows the place and time.’

‘yes we perhaps we have mistaken him for someone else..’ Jian yi barks out ‘You think it’s okay to mistake him someone else?? apologise publicly n 2000 words! the school will continue to look!’

‘Heard from Jian Yi your side is settled. I have also fixed my side.’

‘She li won’t make trouble for you anymore.’ He raises a bloodied hand. ‘ Come here to help~’ 

‘Why didn’t you go to the doctor!’ Redhead says, taking off his shirt. ‘ I came to ask you to pay the medical fees.’ He Tian replies.

‘idiot…’ Redhead mumbles quietly, using the shirt to clean up his bloodied hand.

redhead clenches his teeth as if pained by he tian getting injured, and laces their fingers together. 

TØP Christmas Album

With great hits such as:

- santa clause wasn’t real and now I have trust issues

- all I want for Christmas is josh to dye his hair back brown

- grandma got run over by my giant tricycle sorry g-ma but I’m trying to sing about my problems here

And last but not least:

- josh baby…wait no I mean santa baby ft. Halsey

In a lot of shots I felt like Mary didn’t even look like Mary. I know that’s stupid because she changes her look all the time but the fact her characterisation was so off even from her s3 ‘fun jokey’ character struck me right away? Her voice was even all over the place it was so weird

since the creators for the ons secret santa has been revealed, here’s mine!! it’s a  secret santa within a secret santa! wow i feel so clever AFTER the shipwreck that was the finale im just gonna pretend guren is safe, shinya is found, and everyone is together foreverrrrrrr

RWBY Volume 4 Chapter 8 Recap, I have no idea if there even IS a winter finale anymore(spoilers)

Qrow explains the whole deal with the maidens, and Jaune is as logically pissed as you would expect him to be.

“He used you as bait”.

GREAT-now I feel weird about Qrow now, THANKS A LOT LOGICALLY SKEPTICAL JAUNE!

Qrow than explains, that creationism is real, and that his group needs to collect the four Cyber Planet keys before Megatron does, or he’ll combine them and gain control of the anti-life equation…basically.

Gotta say though, sure does make sense that humans were made by light AND dark forces, unlike a religion that tries to make you believe that something of pure good would allow 2016 to happen(oh wow, a 2016 joke, so clever)-SHUT UP INNER THOUGHTS!

We then cut to-KALI BELLADONA-the only mom in this show to both be alive AND not horrible. Usually its one or the other.

HA-what an adorably awkward slightly body-shaming father/daughter conversation, there’s no WAY it could turn into a massive feel-fest so quickly.

*One exact thing I just said later.*

…*SNIFF*-WHAT?! I’m not crying YOU’RE CRYING! Oh dear lord we need some Joss Whedon style comic relief to cut this tension.

*CRASH* “This isn’t the bathroom!”

There it is.

Ghira: I really don’t like you.

Someone needs to put this on a t-shirt like  YESTERDAY!

Eh, withholding the info about world controlling relics to stop panic is a LOT better than withholding the info about making freaking first contact in Men in Black. 

Oh man…QROW IS GOING TO EXPLAIN HIS BIRD POWE-

Qrow: I bring misfortune to those around me, that’s my semblance.

…COME ON! There better be a mysterious crow in the next scene, where after someone asks “Is that everything?” and he’ll be all “Not…everything.”

*Exact thing I said happens*

OKEY DOODLES!

BLAKE USED DOUBLE-SLAP, its…not that effective. This is Sun after all!

Sun: The bad guys who exploded your school and want to kill us are here!

Blake: Bitch I don’t care, I’m on vacation! Now watch as I throw your scroll at absolutely nothing!

Zipper Ninja: OW!

Blake:…not one word.

Kali: What’s happening?

Sun: The White Fang are evil, I totally called it, and I’m going to get your daughter back!

Blake: Bitch what did I just say?!

Seriously though that line from Sun was GOLD!

We then cut to a nice sunny morning with team RNJR and-HOLY SHIT QROW IS BLEEDING PURPLE! WHERE’S THE WHITE MAGE?!

Well ladies and gentlemen, as far as 20 minute plot dump episodes go, this was a DAMN good one, especially with Blake and her dad.

Oh, god. I’m rewatching TSoT and I have to stop every two seconds to contain myself

anonymous asked:

Hi, there! I was reading your webcomic, and wow, Persephone is so witty, clever, strong-minded, independent anddddddd I absolutely loved how she replied wittily to Hades' remarks!! I loved their interactions. I would really like your webcomic to be known by more people. Have you thought about publishing it in webtoons(.)com too? You could publish it in www(.)webtoons(.)com/en/challenge , and even earn money from it. I really want people to know this witty, playful and unique Persephone! :)

Wow! I’m so happy you feel this way about my comic! ❤️ I haven’t looked into that yet, thank you for the suggestion! I’ll go ahead and take a look at it now :) If I do decide to go that route I might touch up some previous chapters so the layout is more consistent haha

queenofattolia replied to your post “I’m curious, does the third book stand on its own, or do you need to…”

The Thief is a book that’s much better in retrospect/on reread than it is the first time you read it. I remember being unimpressed at the time, and now I’m like, “WOW SO CLEVER WOW.”

What she said! I remember first reading The Thief and not understanding the appeal that much, but once I finished it I was SOLD on the whole series. It’s the kind of book that’s actually super excellent but you’ve got to read the whole thing to understand why!!

okay but like in Alexander Hamilton Mulligan/Madison & Lafayette/Jefferson both sing “we fought with him” bc Mulligan and Lafayette fought by his side and Madison and Jefferson argued with him in the cabinet battles
and when Anthony sings “me? I died for him” both Laurens and Phillip did like Phillip literally died defending his dad
and then when all three Schuyler sisters sing “me? I loved him” Peggy/Maria says it because Peggy confided in Hamilton and Maria had an affair with him and wow Hamilton is so clever I can’t

Here are the most important things I’ve learned about dealing with children:

- It’s generally better to tell them what to do, instead of what not to do, when possible. Instead of “Stop yelling”, “Use a soft voice.” Instead of “Don’t run”, “Walk, please!”

- It’s generally better to praise effort than innate traits. “You’re working hard!” vs “You’re so smart”, “I can see you put a lot of effort into this”  vs “You’re so talented!”, “Wow, you really put thought into this!” vs “Wow, you’re so clever!” - We were raised to see “most improved” as the bad award, but when you treat that kind of praise as the best, kids learn not to give up or throw a fit when they’re not immediately good at something. 

- BE CONSISTENT. If you’re going to make a change to a rule or punishment, tell them before you do it. Discuss it with them. This is The Most Important Thing. It’s terrifying having something be Okay one day and Punishable the next, or a Small Offense one day and The End Of The World another. If the dishes have been piling up for a week, you need to have a calm discussion about it, because if you go off the handle it will seem random. Even if it isn’t to you, it will seem so to your child. The dishes were there yesterday, what changed today? Rules and requirements and consequences need to be consistent and predictable, so your child can develop faith in the future and belief that promises will be fulfilled.

- LISTEN. Never ever punish your child for confiding in you. Even if what they confide is upsetting. If your kid wants to talk to you, do your best to find time to listen to them.

- REMEMBER YOUR CHILD’S PERSPECTIVE. Remember when your kid calls a day the “worst day ever” because they dropped candy or lost a video game that they are four. In the grand scheme of their life there’s actually a chance that this really is the most sad they have ever felt. In the perspective of tragedies you have faced, dropping a candy might seem small, because you’ve been through some shit. But your kid is four, they have not, and dropping a candy actually is comparatively awful in the scheme of their experiences. Also when your kid does something “bad”, try to look at what they were trying to do. If you just run yelling because they’ve been coloring on the wall, you might miss that they wrote “I luv u mommy” on the wall and might have been trying to please you, in which case your angry response is going to be jarring to them. Be gentle!

Obviously you can’t stay calm all the time and everyone makes mistakes and I’ve never had kids of my own so I’m one to talk. I’m not sure I’d be a great parent. It takes a huge amount of energy and patience. So here’s the biggest one.

FORGIVE YOURSELF. You’re gonna mess up. When I meet a perfect parent, I will tell you, but it has not happened yet. If you love your kid and tried then you’ve done a good job on the biggest things already. Be kind to yourself.
