•Obviosly Zack, Billy, and Trini think Jason and Kimberly are going to get together 

      -One time Zack mentions it to Trini and her face drops and he knows. He just knows. So she resigns and tells him about her feelings for Kimberly

      -He becomes like their number 1 shipper cause “how cute would crazy girl and Kimmy be?!” 

•Kimberly and Jason hang out a lot though, they are great friends. He’s the first person she told about sending the picture and everything, and he’s the first person she goes to tell she thinks that she might like Trini

      -And Jason being Jason is like wtf? Of course you like her! We’re a team- let’s hope you like her. And she just stares at him until he finally gets it and he just grins, jumping in the air and exclaiming "I KNEW IT”

•When they finally get together, the girls can’t stop smiling because they know this is right, and it’s meant to be

•At first there wasn’t a whole lot of pda, just discreet handholding and secret kisses. But one time Zack was teasing Kimberly and she had this amazing comeback and Trini crossed the room and just smashed her lips to hers

     -the guys are just so happy because they love their girls and are glad that they are happy 

•When they walk through school holding hands, Kimberly’s old friends tease them a lot 

       -This makes Trini so mad, she knows about Kimberly sending the photos and how bad she feels about it, she doesn’t need more things on her plate 

      -So one time, Kimberly is walking through the halls and she sees her ex-friends standing in her way and she stops, because oh no, what are they gonna do now? But then they slowly back away 

      -Kimberly is confused, until she looks behind her and just sees Trini: arms crossed and her eyes practically on fire as she glared at the girls 

•Kimberly always has Trini’s back when they are in their zorbs, she always keeps yellow in her sight 

     -On the ground they are practically unstoppable. They practice together so much they have planned moves and strategies that rely on complete trust of one another. Their enemies are stunned by how seamlessly they work together

•Kimberly takes Trini to the lake near the coal mines, where she first talked to Jason

      -they spend nearly all their time there in the summer

•Whenever one of them asks the other for water, they just grin and smile at eachother. Remembering when Kimberly just freaking threw Them off a cliff

•They both are always wearing something with the others color on it, whether it’s a necklace, or socks they always have pink and yellow

•They plan these sarcastic responses using the both of them that just make the guys crazy

         -“That’s totally cheating, you guys practice that!”

•Just loving and supporting eachother 100% because they know they are perfect for eachother

New Zealand North Island

Back in September I travelled to New Zealand. I have been slack and have only just finished editing together this little video from my time there. If you have a spare 3 minutes check it out and I’d love to know what you think

:)

Firebird: armor my ass.

The truth is that I hated last episode’s flashbacks. I hated that Emma still looked somewhat lifeless. It made me wonder if maybe Emma looking and acting like this really isn’t on purpose after all. Maybe JMo’s just phoning it in at this point (god knows I would after what they pulled with the Dark Swan arc).

Most of all, I hated, hated, hated that they made the red jacket her “armor”. For me, that jacket symbolizes Emma Swan more than anything else, including the bug. It symbolizes our Emma, the one I fell in love with in Season 1 and related to on a very personal, painful level. The one we watched slowly let down her walls through four seasons of character development (some better than others, but still Emma). The one that found the family she’d looked for her whole life and learned to love and be loved; decided to stay and accepted that they wouldn’t leave. That Emma wears the red jacket, and she is strong and she is vulnerable because she knows her family is worth risking some pain.

This is not that Emma. And they aren’t satisfied simply taking her away from us and replacing her with this shell of a person, this sad, lifeless, frail woman who speaks in monotone from the safety of her boyfriend’s arms. No, that’s not enough. They want to tell us that our Emma never even existed. She was a mask, an armor, a defense mechanism that the “real” Emma was using because she was “afraid to love”. They want to tell us that although Emma spent her entire life looking for family, finding them didn’t really break any walls down. Loving her parents, her son, her friends, none of that made her vulnerable. Only Hook was important enough for her to do that, and now she can finally be herself. She can put the armor down. She can get rid of the red jacket.

The red jacket symbolizes Emma Swan. They want to say that the jacket was “armor”. That it was “walls”. They want to say one of my favorite characters never existed.

There is no Emma Swan, only Zorb.

Hello^^ Thanks for the last reaction, the Zorbing thing with Dongwoo made me laugh so hard xD It looks really fun, kinda want to try that too^^ Well, I want to try all of those sports, they all look so cool and exciting. But I guess I would piss myself doing half of those activities... >.< Infinite gif reaction: Their hoobae always calls them sunbae-nim, but Infinite wants their hoobae to call them (Infinite) oppa, because they (Infinite) is romantically interested in their hoobae... Please?^^

Hi there dear ~ it was no problem I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’d love to try all of them too and really hope to do those things some day haha. Anyway I hope you like how this reaction turns out!

\*unicorn*/



SUNGGYU:

“Oh hey Y/N you did really great today!” “Thank you sunbae-nim!” He’ll sigh a little and put his hands on his hips “We talked about this, it’s oppa we’re close right?” “Are you sure it’s really okay?” “Of course!” you shyly look down before smiling up at him “Thank you…oppa.” He’ll smile brighter than the sun and won’t lose his smile for the whole week.

DONGWOO:

He’ll be really upfront about wanting you to call him that “If you’re not here to tell me I’m a good oppa then I don’t think we can talk anymore~” He’ll tease and you’ll blush “Of course you’re a good oppa.” you say softly and he couldn’t be happier.

WOOHYUN:

Has wanted you to call him oppa from day one and won’t stop until he hears it from your pretty lips “C’mon no more sunbae-nim this sunbae-nim that, just call me oppa!” “But-” “Nuh uh not listening~” you’ll roll your eyes at his childishness but play along “Oppa, do you really like it that much?” “Even more than you can imagine.”

I don’t feel like he’d be one to push it too much but will drop hints here and there Oppa is happy to see you doing so well.” “Do you want oppa to buy you this?” He’s probably going to use the word more than you are trying to coax/trick you into saying it.


SUNGYEOL:

“I WON’T STOP SINGING AND YELLING UNTIL YOU CALL ME OPPA PROPERLY YOUNG LADY!!” resorts to playful threats and teasing until you break “Oppa I really wish you would stop trying to break my eardrums.” “That’s my girl!”

Another that won’t try to force you into calling him oppa but will rather it come out naturally “Are you feeling better today?” you smile and nod “Thank you for the medicines oppa- OH s-sorry sunbae-nim!” he’ll pat your head “I like oppa better.”


SUNGJONG:

Will probably whine and complain like you aren’t there to hear him “Why won’t Y/N just call me oppa already?” “Is there something wrong with me?” “Am I not oppa material?” “Are we not close?” “Is it me? IS IT ME?” “Oppa, you okay over there?” Smiles “See I knew it wasn’t me that was the problem!”

PJ Liguori is one of those people that are nearly impossible to comprehend. Ninety-nine percent of the time his mind is in another dimension, off somewhere volcano zorbing or star hopping or dreaming up other amazingly bizarre thinks. The most incredible thing about him is that he’s able to put all of his ridiculous thinks into physical form, making videos like “Colour Bandits” and “Galaxy Hand” and “The Forever Train.” Sometimes his thinks come so far that they’re nominated for Emmys, and even then he can find wiggle room to improve and create. To summarize: PJ Liguori is a gift to humankind, and his imagination is a galactic force to be reckoned with.

Best study abroad country for each mbti type? Please and thanks!

Hey, so I’m from the US so I’m going to do this post from that perspective.  If anyone is looking to study in the US and is curious about different cities, I did a post on that a little while ago.  


Also, I’ve visited the countries I picked for the ISTJ, ISFJ, INFP, and ENFP, so if you have any questions about those I might be able to give some advice!

ISTJ- Denmark

Top city: Copenhagen

Denmark is a remarkably well-running and progressive country, suiting the ISTJ’s refined yet organized nature (auxiliary Te).  The country also has an intriguing history involving Vikings and royals and is the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which should also be appealing to the type (dominant Si).

ISFJ- Poland

Top cities: Warsaw, Kraków, Gdańsk

Poland has an extraordinarily strong sense of cultural, religious, and familial identity which the ISFJ will surely respect due to their own personal, treasured traditions (dominant Si).  Polish people are also exceptionally friendly and welcoming to visitors, again a mark of the kindred relationship between the ISFJ and Poland (auxiliary Fe).

INFJ- Chile

Top cities: Santiago, Valparaíso

Colorful, warm, and off the beaten path, the INFJ will feel right at home in a place like Chile.  Chilean people are known as tender and helpful (auxiliary Fe), but also have a creative tilt that suits the INFJ’s more individualistic and unique spirit (dominant Ni).  

INTJ- Germany

Top cities: Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt

Germany is on the cutting edge of technological, social, and cultural trends, a trait that the INTJ will surely find agreeable (dominant Ni).  Germans are known for being well organized and efficient people who also hold strongly to their personal values, which is true of INTJs as well (auxiliary Te and tertiary Fi).

ISTP- New Zealand

Top cities: Auckland, Christchurch 

The ISTP is full of adventure; New Zealand, too, is full of adventure (auxiliary Se).  When not kayaking through a river or skydiving above the islands or zorbing down a mountain, the ISTP could enjoy exercising their mind in one of New Zealand’s excellent universities, like the University of Auckland (dominant Ti).

ISFP- Ghana

Top city: Accra

Full of life, culture, and beauty, Ghana will suit the ISFP’s vibrant and good-natured personality (dominant Fi).  The ISFP would also feel alive amongst the music and dance that Ghana is famous for, and would enjoy the colorful prints and fabrics characteristic of the country’s clothing (auxiliary Se).

INFP- Czech Republic

Top city: Prague

Though small, the Czech Republic is a cultural powerhouse in the heart of Europe.  The country has produced numerous artists, musicians, and writers, notably Franz Kafka, whose expressive and creative skills would be akin to those of the INFP (dominant Fi and auxiliary Ne).

INTP- Japan

Top cities: Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Fukuoka

Just like the INTP, Japan is creative, innovative, and always seems to be several steps ahead of the the pack (dominant Ti and auxiliary Ne).  Japanese people are incredibly polite and gracious (inferior Fe), and hold their country’s traditions and their elders in great esteem (tertiary Si).

ESTP- Thailand

Top city: Bangkok

Thailand offers everything that the ESTP might look for in their study abroad experience: rich culture, stunning vistas, outstanding food, and ample opportunities to enjoy partying (dominant Se).  When getting down to work, however, the highly intelligent but oft underestimated ESTP would appreciate the country’s innovation and place as an emerging world power (auxiliary Ti).

ESFP- Brazil

Top cities: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo

Brazil is a nation bursting with culture and festivity, much like the ESFP (dominant Se).  The country also has a strong set of morals defined by its Catholic heritage, and an ESFP, regardless of their religious beliefs, would enjoy learning about and discussing those personal values with their Brazilian friends (auxiliary Fi).   

ENFP- Hungary

Top city: Budapest

Another country that strays from the norm, Hungary has a history characterized by eclectic events, misconceptions (there’s an odd story for the way the country got its name), and complex foreign relations (dominant Ne and inferior Si).  Additionally, Hungary is known for its distinct culture and food, which might appeal to the novel nature of the ENFP (auxiliary Fi).

ENTP- Turkey

Top city: Istanbul

One of the coolest things about Turkey is its dual identity as both part of Asia and part of Europe- something that the ENTP would find interesting to ponder and observe (dominant Ne and auxiliary Ti).  The country also has a rich history that has, by virtue of its position on the Mediterranean, played host to epic power struggles and overthrows amongst some of history’s most prominent civilizations, which the ENTP would enjoy studying (inferior Si).

ESTJ- China

Top cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Kunming

China is characterized by its status as the emerging power in the world and by its value of its illustrious past- two things that the ESTJ would find greatly appealing (dominant Te and auxiliary Si).  China is a great location for any person interested in business, technology, or other industries and would be a fascinating place to live abroad.

ESFJ- Italy

Top cities: Rome, Florence, Venice

Italy is a country defined by its rich history and its emphasis on high culture, whether in art, food, or music- two things that the ESFJ will appreciate greatly (auxiliary Si).  Family and friends, two things that are very important to ESFJs, are highly valued in Italian culture, another plus for the type (dominant Fe).  

ENFJ- France

Top cities: Paris, Grenoble, Bordeaux

France is often considered, perhaps rightly so, as the most refined country on earth.  The ENFJ would find this appealing, as they probably have a vision of their own idealized society (auxiliary Ni) in which romance and passion are regular features (dominant Fe).  Lastly, the country’s rich food and drink would suit the ENFJ’s high tastes (tertiary Se).

ENTJ- Singapore

Top city: Singapore (duh)

Singapore is another one of those countries that seems to be on the forefront of every field imaginable.  Like the ENTJ, the country prioritizes efficiency and would be a great place to learn how to effectively organize and administer in pursuit of an ultimate goal (dominant Te and auxiliary Ni).

2014 is almost over so here’s a list of the songs I listened the most this year, in no particular order. Hope you enjoy it !

Don’t Read If You’re Pro-Season Five Emma Swan

God I miss Emma Swan.

You know, the Emma Swan that I actually admired, who was a strong character determined to fight for the things that mattered to her, the one who stood up for what she believed in and encouraged others to fight back and be who they wanted to be rather than what everyone else told them to be.

I miss the Emma Swan who wanted Henry, who fought to become his mother and wanted to protect him at all costs, who would stand up against anything be it monsters, Peter Pan, Zelena etc to help save her child. I miss the Emma Swan who shared True Love’s Kiss with Henry and knew she could be a mother.

I miss the Emma Swan who wanted to find a home and a family even though she had no idea how to be part of one, who tried so hard to be a daughter and find her place to belong. She struggled and it wasn’t easy but she still carried on and tried to stop a pattern of running away through fear. That Emma Swan, had walls but she still conveyed her struggles and fights and emotions in a way that resonated with me.

The Emma Swan that I loved to watch on screen was the one who found herself and decided who she wanted to be and who has been slowly overcoming new obstacles and revelations, who has loved, lost and struggled to figure out where she fits in Storybrooke, the one who’s journey to find her home was one I was invested in. She was a character who I rooted for, who I wanted to find happiness.

Then Captain Swan happened.

I had high hopes for Hook’s character. I had higher ones for Emma’s and all of those hopes fell to dust.

Emma became someone who it has now become a struggle to watch and want her to succeed. She’s become someone who has slowly been losing whatever faith and confidence she had in herself to become a shell of the character I knew. With Hook, she isn’t being built up and supported but dragged down. She became someone who put her boyfriend ahead of her son and family, who blindly forgave Hook for everything even if it put her family in danger, who went on a foolish errand to the Underworld even when he advised her to let go, letting her family endanger themselves because they would do anything to support her.

Now would she do the same for them? In tonight’s episode when they wanted her help she would only actually do so when it became about helping Hook, who went in blindly and rashly because all she could think of was her own guilt and regret. She did exactly what she did as the Dark One, retreating from her family and went in out of control which wasn’t going to help anyone.

It’s what annoyed me so much when Hook got props for helping kill Hades because he didn’t. Zelena killed Hades, she chose her family over him because she knew he was only going to cause the people she loved harm. Zelena was the hero of this story not Hook.

As for the actions at the end of the episode I felt they were beyond callous. When Neal died, the entire family were behind Emma trying to support her including Regina. When Hook died, Regina followed Emma to the underworld to help even though it meant putting herself at risk because that’s what people who have each other’s back do. When Robin died, I don’t think Emma even looked at Regina once, considering this is someone who Emma felt a connection to because they were both “unique” and understoof each other, I expected a hell of a lot more compassion. To then make out over Robin’s very fresh grave felt…well it felt more than a bit disrespectful.

I don’t know if it’s Adam and Eddy’s intention to turn their main character into such an unlikable one or not but it’s certainly what they’re achieving.

As an SQ shipper I find it very hard to watch because this Emma isn’t one I want to ship anyone with. Seasons One-Four Emma, yes because she undeniably had Regina’s back and fought for her and Henry whenever she could. The Swan-Mills Family was a beautiful core of the show with the three of them figuring out how to be a family unit and for Regina and Emma to build a relationship. That’s the SQ I want to remember. That’s the SQ that Swen fell in love with and wanted to see become something.

It’s the Emma Swan I wish we had, the one who was there for her family no matter what, who for all of her hang-ups and fears was still a confident, strong character but also had incredibly vulnerable moments wherein she let her family be there for her. That’s the Emma Swan I want back.

Hopefully one day soon, she’ll reappear.
