When I was in high school, I did some volunteering with the preschool program that was located inside the high school. Sometimes I think about the time when there was the tiniest little girl, who was told to sit somewhere alone because of emotional overload. I knew I wasn’t really supposed to, but I gently approached her and asked if she was sad and wanted a hug. She reached her arms toward me and I gave her a brief hug, patted her on the back a little, and then left. The teacher called my name then, but she didn’t say anything about it. I like to think she secretly approved.
When I was in high school, I was often told to sit alone in a back room because of emotional overload. While it did help, it helped very slowly. The one and only time someone came in (it was a brand-new teacher, who must not have known she was “supposed” to treat us like badly-behaved children) and showed a little bit of sympathy, it went a long, long way.
The kid didn’t deserve a real time-out. She wasn’t throwing a tantrum. She was just crying. The teacher wasn’t that harsh with her, in fact she was a very warm person and I loved her, but I had to give her that hug. I had to. Sometimes I just remember that happened, and I can’t stop thinking about how I had to.

“Can you imagine being a funky chimera principal of one of the most national and prestigous levels and u get a class that just happens to be maxium level disaster and you drinking tea sessions get stopped because ur students cant help themselves in just yeeting themselves into heavily dangerous situations because their chaos children.”
“That would be wack.”
Everybody has their first time loving someone but using that beginning, that first time as an excuse to step away from the responsibility and vulnerability that comes with love, is total bullshit and hella scary.
I was not yours to
You had no right to control me like that
I will not take your abuse anymore
the ‘goro-futaba’ sibling theory is one of the best and worst theory to exist for p5.
best theory because it explains questions why shido is very obsess with wakaba…’s work, and why shido ruin futaba’s life to the extremes because shido did it already with his son when he was in the womb go two-for-two.
worst theory because that means shido and wakaba were while not a thing, given their jobs it was more serious than shido and ms. akechi and he still went ‘f*ck this i’m out’ sir how are you getting ladies to begin with?
i joined khan academy today bc i just can’t not study and it would be a loooong time before i go back to college and finish my degree anyways
“What if we had a day where everyone was Flanders?”
“Everytime i need dabi hes never around and when i dont need him hes always around what the fuck is this black magic.”
She writes two copies of this missive to a dear, dear friend, penned in their common language. It would be easy to blink and miss the difference between them – just a single crossed out sentence, after all. It seems to risky, still, so with a flick she puts a strike through. And the rest of it? Well, you be the judge. Read on and decide what this note might tell us about the pearl of Russia.
I have to say, I like the AC 36 intro/outro music, it’s engaging and captures the tension of the races, especially with the ticking sound, and the Ominous Maori Chanting is a great local touch, but it’s not quite as high-energy as some of the music from the Oracle broadcasts last time.
Especially in the outros when it’s playing over the AC-75s being towed back, the helicopter shots of Auckland, and the spectator fleet heading home, it seems appropriately mellow and subdued, like “We’re worn out after all of that intense racing, let’s head home and rest”.
And I think having that sort of subdued, moody touch to the opening and closing music is very fitting just for the whole experience of sitting down to watch online in lockdown with all sorts of other chaos going on in the world. It’s super great and exciting to watch the America’s Cup and we are all happy and psyched, but with everything else hanging over our heads… we might not readily feel just quite as joyous and carefree in the whole experience as we did watching the camera sweep over the Great Sound three and a half years ago.
I think I needed to learn that maybe love without constant pain and misery is a possibility for me to realize that what we had was far from love.
Dominate is a verb, not a noun.

“Must I remind others that my title is Master Yi. Think of it as my true name, if you must. I do not lightly tolerate being called just… Yi.”
Even saying it himself made him feel a little strange.
