Rest in Peace, Francis Lapointe (aka Frank Wolf) who committed suicide on Nov. 25th 2013. He was an exquisite model, loved to cosplay and was bullied for cross dressing and simply being who he was and doing what he loved to do. I wish he could’ve listened to every single person who admired him and loved him. Let this influence you to love yourself for who you are, not what society thinks or what others think. Influence others that they are beautiful inside and out and that suicide is NEVER the answer.
We lost a beautiful person along with Paul Walker this month. Best wishes to his family, friends, and his fans.
RIP Frank Wolf <3
i just realised why i’ve been feeling so empty and sad in finland
it’s because i don’t have the ability to make anymore
at home if i felt bored or really at any time i could just go and do something
like i could sew or work with wonderflex or do stuff with clay and i felt like i was being useful and productive
here i can’t do that, i don’t have an ability to make anything, really
my hands and my mind are getting bored, i guess that’s why i’m so tired and unmotivated all the time
and now i really itch to just sew something cool or something i just want to do something and i know i can’t and it just really bothers me, i’ve been making constantly as long as i can remember, and now for the first year in my life i can’t make anything and it’s really strange…
they said that you find your true passions on exchange but so far it’s just taken them away from me…i mean, i wouldn’t give up this year for anything but i’m just afraid i’ll go insane
I will always reblog this. It’s fascinating and terrifying at the same time.
holy fucking shit
I am now officially terrified of snakes.
ok i really have no idea why this post has like 600.000 notes but let me say something
there are several kinds of snakes and several kinds of snake venoms. not all snakes are venomous. the two major kinds of venoms are: hemotoxins and neurotoxins. hemotoxins are what you see above and they usually do something to the blood (like clotting as you see above), hence the hemo. neurotoxins do stuff to the nervous system (usually something similar to paralysis). and again, not all snakes are venomous. if you live in the united states, probably the most common snakes you’ll see are just constrictors, and unless you live way down south (aka tropical places, like florida) you won’t see constrictors that are too life threatening and even in florida the life threatening ones are something like “invasive species” or pets that they release into the wild (which are invasive species). most likely if you live in a not-so-hot and marshy/tropical climate you’ll see a lot of garter snakes/corn snakes/relatives of them and these are snakes that are often kept as pets because they are not too dangerous!!! trust me, i have them!!! the most venomous snakes you’ll probably encounter in the continental us in fact are basically: rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, coral snakes, sidewinders, massasauga, and copperheads! and if you think about it, that’s only about 6 snakes (there are various types of each but pretty spread out and they’re repeated in several states and easy to spot…)
in other parts of the world where snakes are more common and dangerous (southeast asia for example) then it’s okay to be more scared… but i have a feeling if you’ve grown up there you’ve been trained not to touch or trained to recognize them)… and if you’re on vacation, it’s likely to tourist spots where there are probably security measures and precautions taken so that tourists don’t die.
please don’t be scared of snakes. most of them will not bite you unless you provoke them or are stupid. most snakes you will encounter in your lifetime will probably be domestic pet snakes and those are normally no problem. i’d hate for snakes to get a bad rap because of a dumb tumblr post
(That’s our president right there, pic hinted to me by reproduced-reality)
I’m not sure how other countries celebrate independence days but in Finland you wont see anyone on the streets celebrating loudly (Unless you go to the cemeteries where some people might take a walk and lay candles to the graves). Finns respect holiday this important by silence and peace. It would be rude to carouse on the streets.
Traditionally people mostly spend Independence Day at home with family. They eat something, probably sauteed reindeer with mashed potatoes or Karelian stew. Then, of course, there’s blue and white coloured candles lighten up in front of the windows.
In my childhood there was absolutely nothing interesting from TV, only war documentaries and “The Unknown Soldier” movie coming in the afternoon. Today there’s plenty of cartoons and “The Unknown Soldier” is shown later in the evening (and you can decide whether you’ll watch the movie, Lordi’s winning at Eurovision Song Contest or Finland-Sweden 2011 Ice Hockey World Championship Finals).
But to the Main Event: The broadcasted President’s party from TV, the “Castle’s Party!” This year it’s different because the “castle” is under renovation but I guess the main idea stays the same: We watch TV for three hours and watch as famous people and people on high position shake hands with the President Sauli Niinistö and his wife. And of course you judge all female dresses and condemn etiquette blunders. There’s a concert afterwards but I guess that’s the part of the party we wont get to see.
For Kyra :) Sorry it took so long. (Onnea!)
Headcanon: Ludwig and Kiku get coffee and Ludwig oh-so-subtly tries to hold his hand but keeps freaking out too much to actually do it until Kiku gets the cue but he’s too shy to hold hands too so he leans on him instead.
SCREAMS IT’S SO CUTE THANK YOU KAI <3 <3 <3 <3
AhhhHHHHhhHHHhhhhhh it’s adorable ::)))))
it’s my birthday tomorrow!!! i’m really excited, it’s going to be the first time i ever have my birthday on a school day :D
also i had my birthday party last night and it was really fun :D we made s’mores and banana boats and i’m really glad people liked them!!!!!
also sorry for not posting much i’ve been really busy with everything :((
the real questions we should be asking are
does america put ketchup on his hotdogs
what does he call those sweet carbonated drinks
honestly the thisisnotkorea/thisisnotchina/thisisnotjapan blogs make me ashamed to be lumped into the same group of people as the admins
the point is not to isolate east asian cultures even more, it’s to help educate people about them so they become better informed and less racist/fetishizing (aka ignorant) about things they don’t know anything about
yelling at people for not knowing things about cultures very different from each other and even the rest of the world will not solve the problems asian-anyones face across the world
education, enlightenment, and sharing will, and people need to realise that
