year 2012 is the best

2

I have been attending SDCC since 2012 and this year was probably one of the best experiences of my life. It was fun, stress-free, and unexpectedly emotional. I just felt so… whole.

First, let’s talk about the fun. I don’t normally party, but when I do it’s with fellow nerds. I’ve attended a few fan parties and industry parties over the years, but this year’s Wynonna Earp party was freaking great. I met Emily Andras and Tim Rozon. Tamara Duarte photobombed one of our group photos. I saw Melanie Scorfano for a split second. I met up with cool people I haven’t seen in a while. Most importantly – I danced. I danced a lot. (P.S. @isjustprogress is the best dance partner I could ever ask for. I could dance and drink with this girl forever.)

Oh! By the way… this year is also the second time that I just casually crossed paths with Tyler Posey. Last year, it was at a restaurant. This year, it was at Ben & Jerry’s. No pic because of the awkwardness. But I swear… that dude.

Also, HOLY SHIT… you just don’t realize how stress-free SDCC could be until you say “fuck, I’m just gonna wing it.” In previous years I actually put together an itinerary of what I need to do, which events I need to attend, and when I actually need to eat. It was the most frustrating part of the con. This year I decided to keep it simple. My first day in San Diego was spent having drinks, talks, and leisurely walks with my friend Sarah. It’s gotta be the most relaxing day of my life. It really set the tone for the rest of my time there.

Anyway, let’s talk about how freaking emotional this whole con was. Besides parting with my friends yesterday and feeling like I lost a limb, both the Teen Wolf and Wynonna Earp panels brought out so many tears from my eyes that I was left thinking, WTF this was supposed to be fun!!! What can I say, seeing Tyler Posey and Melanie Scorfano cry just broke me. On a personal note, while I was at the Wynonna Earp panel I also found out that my grandmother passed away. It was expected, but it still hurts. I’m just glad I didn’t have to go through it by myself because my hotel roomies Morgan, Andrea, and Sarah are the best.

I’ve been rooming with the same people for a few years now and I couldn’t be more fortunate to be in the presence of such an amazing group of women. It doesn’t matter which hotel we end up at – I know that I’m going to a) Laugh a lot, b) Have deep conversations, and c) Spend several days with people who genuinely thinks I’m cool and seriously wants me around. To be honest, I’m still getting used to letter C. Every time I get a call or text saying “Come hang with us,” I still get teary-eyed. I spend most of the time by myself, you see. SDCC is one time out of the year where I know that I’d get all of the affection and physical contact that I don’t normally get in my day-to-day. And maybe it’s because we’ve spent enough days in a hotel together over the years… but this year, I felt especially loved. And that’s a big deal to me.

Thierry Henry, Forward, Henry has received many plaudits and awards in his football career. He was runner-up for the 2003 and 2004 FIFA World Player of the Year awards; in those two seasons, he also won back-to-back PFA Players’ Player of the Year titles. Henry is the only player ever to have won the FWA Footballer of the Year three times (2003, 2004, 2006), and the French Player of the Year on a record four occasions. Henry was voted into the Premier League Overseas Team of the Decade in the 10 Seasons Awards poll in 2003, and in 2004 he was named by football legend Pelé on the FIFA 100 list of the world’s greatest living players. 

In terms of goal-scoring awards, Henry was the European Golden Boot winner in 2004 and 2005 (sharing it with Villarreal’s Diego Forlán in 2005). Henry was also the top goalscorer in the Premier League for a record four seasons (2002, 2004, 2005, 2006). In 2006, he became the first player to score more than 20 goals in the league for five consecutive seasons (2002 to 2006). With 175, Henry is currently fifth in the list of all-time Premier League goalscorers, behind Alan Shearer, Andy Cole, Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard. All of his Premier League goals were for Arsenal, giving him the record for most goals in the competition for one club, until it was broken by Rooney in 2016. France’s all-time record goalscorer was, in his prime in the mid 2000s, regarded by many coaches, footballers and journalists as one of the best players in the world. In November 2007, he was ranked 33rd on the Association of Football Statisticians’ compendium for “Greatest Ever Footballers." 

Arsenal fans honoured their former player in 2008, declaring Henry the greatest Arsenal player. In two other 2008 surveys, Henry emerged as the favourite Premier League player of all time among 32,000 people surveyed in the Barclays 2008 Global Fan Report. In 2009, Henry was voted the best Premier League player of the 2000s. Arsenal fan and The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey mentions Henry in the tribute song "Highbury Highs”, which he performed at Arsenal’s last ever game at Highbury on 7 May 2006. On 10 December 2011, Arsenal unveiled a bronze statue of Henry at the Emirates Stadium as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.

anonymous asked:

Ok I am sorry but 2017 Gryles > 2012 Gryles. I am ready to defend my case

Let me give you a helping hand, my friend.
Reasons why gryles 2017 > gryles 2012:

1. In 2017, Harry was on Nick’s show 2x, we have the 3rd on the way, and it’s only half of the year (in 2012 - two proper visits like this)

2. They have been best friends for 6 years now (2012 - only 1 year)

3. Nick flew to NY to see Harry’s first solo performance (in 2012, Nick did not fly to NY for Harry)

4. They went to their friends’ wedding and vacation together, gave us a drunk photo!!!!! and let’s be real, probably got married there (there was no vacationing together in 2012)

5. They have been through so much together, they’ve changed a lot, but the only thing that hasn’t changed it’s their love for each other, or actually it has changed - it’s much stronger now, also with how they do not give a single fuck how their relationship is perceived publicly, they’ve seen it all and now they know nothing can break them (I am definitely not crying while writing this…)

Case closed.

Christopher Plummer, at 82 years and 75 days, won Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars 2012 for his role in Beginners and became oldest ever Oscar winner.

In his acceptance speech, Plummer joked about his age. Looking at his Oscar statuette, he said: “You’re only two years older than me darling, where have you been all of my life?”

okay. please read this.

there is a viral post going around of a tweet. the tweet says something along the lines of, “I look African American in my display picture. I’m white I swear” and then a picture of a girl.

please do not share that photo. please do not make fun of that girl and her appearance.

that tweet was posted in 2012 by my best friend. 5 years ago, she wasn’t as educated. she didn’t know what was or was not okay to say.

someone dug up that tweet to use it against her, and it’s spread everywhere. it’s all over twitter, instagram, facebook, and probably even tumblr.

the person who posted it has cropped out the date so you think it’s recent. it’s not. it’s 5 years old, when she was younger and dumb.

please, please do not share that post. and please do not attack her for her looks.

"I miss you so much! I promise I'll see you during the break, and it'll be like old times. I love you, stay safe!"

This wasn’t a text message or an email, but it was the last thing my best friend said to me when we were 15 years old in December of 2011, the day before Christmas break. We had grown apart a bit because she had different friends than I did. She had given me a huge hug and a kiss on the cheek and lips as she said this before she went skipping off to her last class. She seemed so happy. She wound up jumping in front of a bus and in a suicide attempt. She was in a coma before they pulled the plug on her on January 2nd of 2012. I’m 20 years old now and she was my best friend since we were 3 years old. We were inseparable and I truly thought she was my soul mate. I loved no one more than I loved her, and still no one compares. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t think of her. I never did get a chance to see her before she died, and if I had known that moment was the last time I’d ever see her alive, I would have hugged her a little tighter and a little longer or maybe I would have searched a little harder for her. She was found only a block away from her house.

Seeing some Discourse™ on my dash about the small text / small small text / small icons trends; and me, being me, has to add a few words. Firstly, I am in the middle. I don’t really like full size text, I think it’s a bit bulky. But I also hate smallsmall or supsup, whatever people do. Using it for one or two words, for effect, fine !!! but the entirety I simply cannot read. I am old and my glasses are not good enough for that. BUT that doesn’t mean people who genuinely enjoy the look of it are bad or wrong or should stop; it just means unless the reply is TO me 100% guarantee I won’t even try to read your post. If it’s headcanon, meta, psa, rp – I just am not gonna strain myself that way. If the reply is to me I will zoom in x200 and read and enjoy your work. Asking your partner to maybe not do double small when replying to you is always an idea, if it bothers you so much, but let’s not SHAME people either way??? I rp with ppl who use full size and small small. I have my preferences but don’t try and force urs onto others ok ?????????? It isn’t that hard.

Never Forget ( Gréta Salóme & Jónsi - Iceland 2012)

Years have passed, since she heard from him. They used to be best friends, even more than that in secret. He told her the things that troubled him the most, including his identity, and she helped him keep his faith in a better future. One day they had to say goodbye. He moved away, far, far away, leaving her without any contact. 

She wrote letters to him, which she kept in a box under her bed, without envelopes or stamps, or an address to send them to. And she waited, she waited and hoped to see him again.

After years, he transitioned, fully embraced his identity as a trans man, no, a man and, aching for something long-forgotten, he set on his way back to his hometown. On the way, he remembered her and the long nights they spent together.

Dawn will break, and he’ll be standing on her doorstep once again.
