This should be on every billboard across the world until people truly understand it’s meaning and everyone accepts everyone else as equals
This is perfect wow
I hope I’m not counting my chicks before they hatch, but as long as I get a 64% on my final, I pass English and get to graduate!!
Today was the physics field trip to Six Flags and it was fun :)
I stuck around for the senior awards night even though I didn’t expect anything and they gave me my ‘state scholars’ certificate thing. I was kind of grateful I got something rather than nothing cx
Dude, I felt uber proud of my best friend, the valedictorian <333 she was awarded several things as well as a couple of scholarships I think and she definitely more than earned them. She’s pretty amazing guys C:
her mom also gave me a ride so that was kind of awesome because otherwise I don’t know how I would have gotten home…
Tomorrow then is the practice/rehearsal for graduation and afterwards I GET TO HANG OUT WITH MY BEST FRIENDS. You don’t know how happy I am about this, it hasn’t happened since prom and even then, there were also theater friends of friends that are nice, but not my closest friends in the whole world…
I would just like to point out that the beginning and end of Spirited Away creep me out in the most delicious way possible. I’ve always been a fan of fairy tales, and not just the Grimm and Anderson stuff, almost all my life. Like the honestly faerie court stories.
Themes you see in those reflect strongly in this movie, and comparing them side by side just makes it that much more stark.
Often times you hear that if you get sucked into the fairy realm, you shouldn’t eat their food. It gives them power over you. More often than not, heroes finally escape the fairy realm after what they perceive to be a very short time (a night or a week)…
…only to find that seasons or years have passed.
‘Hey, it’s all dusty in here. Is this someone’s idea of a joke?’
CRAPPING SHIT I WHY HAVE I NEVER NOTICED THIS
This always freaked me out a little as a kid. Like the OP, I couldn’t help but wonder how long REALLY passed. I always pretended it was something like a week but… Judging by that moss, I can’t say for sure.
A week? Try much MUCH /MUCH/ longer. The plants are a good indicator but a better one is the statue. We’re seeing it from the same angle in each shot. Look in the first one before she enters, it’s not NEW but you can tell what it is.
Now look at the second frame. It’s so eroded it’s just a dull, flat stone.
That thing is solid stone, that must have taken up to, if not more than, a DECADE to wear down that much.
Not to mention that there are new trees next to the car. Just remember how long it actually takes for trees to grow real quick.
Evidence is suggesting they were in there for maybe around 20-30 years.

Females: I want equal rights.
Females: You can’t hit me I’m a female.
Females: I want equal rights and i don’t want you to hit me because I am a human being and I don’t like being hit
Even if they throw the first punch?
how about no one hits anyone because hitting people is wrong
Japan > Everywhere else
This is Japan in a nutshell. Forget all the crazy stuff with the weird tv programs and the cosplaying—that’s just the outer shell that gets attention because it’s unusual. This, this is the beauty of the country. I’ve had little grandmothers chase me down because I dropped my shinkansen tickets. In amusement parks, the attendants do their upmost to get lost items (usually cardigans or kids’ shoes) back to the owners—before the owners even realize they’d lost said item(s). I’ve had complete strangers not only give my thorough directions but have offered to drive me to the place I needed to go.
It is so, so, so hard to go back to the States after you get the J-treatment. I mean, Japan has its downside (“What is this madness you call pizza???”), but the general attitudes of everyone—even the so-called hardcore yankees (two of whom who, on a blazing summer day, helped me find one of my schools when I was heinously lost in the labyrinth that is the neighborhood in which said school is located)—is the epitome of the mindset that I wish everyone would adopt. Because yelling at people gets you nowhere. And being able to empathize with people kinda helps make this country a really nice place to live in.
