My therapist asked me to create something “motivating” so I made these.
I really love these, and I reblog them every single time. Some of you don’t realize how easy it’s to forget to do some of those stuff or how hard they can be some days.
now i feel like ive actually accomplished something today thank u ily
I have these saved on my phone

My roommate and I are really sick and we look like shit, but we were hungry so we ordered pizza.
But we didn’t want anyone to see us, so we asked them over the phone if we can leave the money on the door and they can just drop off the pizza.
The guy said sure.
So we decided to leave a nice little note
and we hung it above the door bell. I hope they like it!
pizza spelt its own name wrong

OH MY GOD O H MY GOD OG MY GDO DFNMDS SSOSDFGMFDG MNYTIO
THIS IS THE CUTEST THING
remember when Doctor Who was really fun and you didn’t feel like ripping out your insides every episode
ALWAYS REBLOG NINE’S FAMILY
I want Jack Harkness on the show again ASAP BBC
Located in deep in the Guilin mountains, shrouded in mist and frequented by dragons that live in the multitude of winding rivers, the students of the Chinese Institute of Magic don their colourful wizarding garbs every September 1st for their return to school whereupon they are treated to spectacular opening festivities involving, but not limited to: choreographed martial arts performances from their combat professors, an assortment of acrobatic wonders, and “Mystery Mooncakes” specially made for the mid-autumn festival.
#my favourite thing is how those of us who have grow up with harry potter are now saying “no that’s not enough” and are expanding the universe #like we’re all critically looking at the books and realizing everything that’s wrong with them and fixing it ourselves #and idk i think that’s amazing
So why is one considered ‘inappropriate’ and the other accepted? Stop sexualising my body.
I wonder this too. Why is it a man’s breast and nipple are okay to show but a woman’s breast and nipple isn’t.
best thing to reblog yet
it’s funny because every time I reblog this I lose at least one follower who seems offended by a nipple
"This isn’t all about just one man killed in one town. It’s about how people of color, no matter their socio-economic standing face obstacles in this country with surprising grace. Imagine that on a pretty consistent basis you can’t get a fucking cab, even though you’re a neurosurgeon, because you’re black.
Race is there and it is a constant. You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it.”
Have I said how much I love John Stewart?
Thank you, John Stewart. Again.
This stunning installation of 888,246 red ceramic poppies was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper in commemoration of the centennial of Britain’s involvement in World War I. Entitled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, each flower represents a British or Colonial military fatality.
This staggering installation is a work in progress, with the ceramic pippies being planted by volunteers in the dry moat that surrounds the Tower of London. The planting process began a few weeks ago and will continue throughout the summer until a final flower is symbolically planted on November 11, 2014.
World War One began one hundred years ago this year.
The world was never the same.
The poppy represents the fallen soldier in general and the soldiers of WWI in particular, after the poem, “In Flanders Fields.”
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row
That mark our dead while in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amidst the guns below
If you don’t want this beautiful picture of Steve Irwin holding a baby platypus on your blog then I’m sorry but I don’t know what you’re doing with your life.
My heart cries.
Omg he was my childhood.
He is THE reason I was a kid grabbing venomous snakes and scorpions in the middle of the Arizona deserts. And now, I can grab any snake, keep it calm, and get it to a safe place. This man made me realize how amazing the outside world is.
So someone I know does woodwork in his spare time… and he showed me this yesterday:
It’s a map of Middle Earth. That he carved onto a table. Himself. In 60-ish hours (or, as he initially put it, “3 Harry Potter audiobooks”)
Just look at the detail…
And the effort that went into this.
Nerd level: Master and Commander.
“There were some fans - Some Internet stuff was saying that they felt that Scott should have killed Deucalion at the end of season 3. And we were like, well they beat the crap out of him he was like on the ground, you literally wanted Scott, a teenage boy to execute this man? And after we knew his backstory and everything - It all just sort of felt like - Like Scott’s not a killer. And to us that’s sort of a tent of the show. Basically every bad thing that’s happened in Beacon Hills has been a result of, you know the Argents killing the Hales. The Hales killing the Argents. The alpha pack killing… And it solves nothing. And basically all Scott and his friends have been doing has been cleaning up the mess of people who have have made these horrible decisions in the past. And what’s so special about Scott McCall, which is what Kate asked him, is that Scott doesn’t kill. Scott’s going to find another way.”
Writer Ian Stokes discussing Scott’s character and his arc on Afterbuzz (x)
It solves nothing because you keep reviving the stupid ass villains that were killed, only to write then back into the storyline for no fucking reason.
This is also why Scott is so fucking boring. You always know that he’s going to succeed. You always know that he’s not going to kill. He never faces any sort of hardship or challenge because he wins. He always wins. That is why Scott is one of the most boring characters on the show.
Thank god fanfictions either write Scott as a stronger, more interesting character. Or they just barely write him at all.
Are all the writers on this show stupid? I think yes.
Also, that’s just dumb.
I, for one, would love to know what this mythical ‘other way’ is. You know, other than letting them go and be someone else’s problem.
Yes, the Argents killing the Hales had horrific consequences that are still being felt and dealt with to this day. But that’s because the Argents (the bad guys) killed a family of good guys (let’s leave Peter out of this equation of the time being).
There was nothing good in the deaths of the Hales. No justification. No motivation other than hate and fear. So, yes, something that is done for evil reasons has terrible consequences.
But that’s not the same as if Scott killed Deucalion, Gerard or any of the other villains. Those deaths would be justified (and I mean justified in a narrative point of view, before anyone accuses me of advocating killing people) because of all the evil things those people have done, all the deaths they have caused, both by their own hand and indirectly. They cause pain and suffering in those who don’t deserve it.
Kate murdered good people because of prejudice and hate. Scott would have been killing people to protect people. To stop bad people doing bad things to good people.
That a writer thinks that the two things are even remotely similar is ever so slightly worrying.
It also makes me think that they don’t quite get what a hero is or what they do.
Because sometimes killing is the only way to protect a) those you love b) the nameless but innocent population
And a hero? A hero does that.
Look at Buffy. She killed bad guys. She was 15 when she became the slayer and she killed SO MANY bad guys because they were a danger. It took its toll on her. But she did it because the hero takes things on their shoulders that other people can’t carry. Again and again and again she made the difficult choice because she was the one who could make that choice, regardless of what it did to her. She put the needs of others above her own.
The only time she really hesitated was with Ben. Because what happened to him wasn’t his fault. And while, yes, there was a psychotic god living in his body, Buffy couldn’t punish him for something that wasn’t his fault and that he didn’t ask for. And then Giles finished him off because while he recognised why Buffy couldn’t do it, but also that Ben and Glory were a clear and present danger and if Ben lived, so did Glory.
All Scott hesitating to kill truly evil bad guys tells us is that he won’t do that to himself. That he puts his piece of mind, his desire not to kill people and ‘sully’ himself, above the safety of everyone else. Because having those people still kicking about puts everyone at risk and Scott seems to be okay with that as long as he doesn’t have to make a decision or get his hands dirty.
Also, is that what Scott’s going to do every time? Give a big bad a slap on the wrist, tell them they were very naughty and then must never do that again or Scott will make them stand in the naughty corner?
It declaws him. He’s not scary. Plus, as viewers, we know the outcome of very fight he’s in.
It’s not like there seems to be a viable alternative option. He just lets them go. That’s not finding another way, no matter what the writers say. That’s merely an absence of a decision, passing the buck and leaving it for others to solve.
Heroes don’t do that. They make decisions, do the difficult thing so others don’t have to.
Hell, if I was a bad guy, I’d go and do what I liked in Beacon Hills because I would know that the self-appointed protector of Beacon Hills would never actually do anything permanent to stop me.
The Buffy comparison is very valid (and not just because Teen Wolf wants to be Buffy v2 so badly) because one of the things that made Buffy interesting and believable as a hero was that she had to make hard choices; she had to do the things that other people wouldn’t do and she faced real consequences for her decisions.
The writing of Scott as Werewolf Jesus is terrible because he faces no consequences for his actions (or lack of action). Other people make those horrible decisions so he can saunter away with his conscience intact. Ironically, S2/3A Derek - who we’re repeatedly told is a bad Alpha - is a far better example of a hero who is prepared to do things that are morally conflicted, and carry a real personal cost, for the greater good.
Perfection is not interesting. A hero needs conflict, they need struggle, we - as viewers - need to feel that things are really on the line for the hero. And that’s just not there with Scott
Yes to all of this.
But god, perfection is boring.
May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.
I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes.
i can’t believe it’s 2014 and there’s still no gay romantic comedy about vin diesel and dwayne johnson falling in love
They raise a gaggle of kids undercover working for a gov’t agency together
i would pay multiple dollars to see vin diesel and dwayne johnson portray a cute affectionate couple
