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.

THIS IS THE MOST ACCURATE POST I’VE SEEN ON TUMBLR
Hello! I am Bean 16 and I reside in America. This is a multi-fandom and personal blog.
I have another blog for just Darren Criss and Glee related things Here: darrenlovesdikrats.tumblr.com
WAIT HOLD THE FUCK UP
IS ‘MRS’ JUST MR’S
LIKE BELONGING TO MR
Mr comes from the French monsieur, which I think literally translates as ‘my lord’ and basically just means master, and Mrs comes from maistre which is the feminine form of master, so actually—for once—no.
This was an extremely relevant comment and I thank you for educating me
When your child is trying to talk to you about something, listen first, then say what you need to.
Nothing pisses a child off more when their parents try to demean them by screaming over what they have to say.
GUYS GUYS GUYS
i was at the bus stop with my sister the other day and for no apparent reason, she says: ‘dude, there are more dead people in the world than living people’ and the woman standing beside me whispered ‘holy shit’ and i fucking lost it
Hey, those chains look exactly like the ones in our dungeon.
Anyone who thinks Shakespeare is boring apparently missed the greatest stage direction ever written:
I want that to be the final line of my biography.

#I was just casually looking at this gifset #wondering what it was from #and then it just hit me #like a car crash #sorry #bad joke #It’s Dean’s goodbye to Lisa and Ben #Can we just talk about how amazing the #supernatural writers are #because the wording in this scene #is so brilliantly constructed #and of course #Jensen you pull it off just as grandly #So here is a kid and his mom #in a hospital #where they believe they had just been in a car accident #so Dean goes in #a total stranger to them #right there, that says it all #Dean owes them #Dean cannot just walk out of their life #without apologizing #but firstly he says #”I just, uh, I lost control for a minute” #he’s not talking about a car people! #he lost control of himself #he lost control of how a hunter’s life #and a normal person’s life #do not mix #he lost control of his protection over them #something he had sworn he would do #he lost control because he felt so deeply for Lisa and Ben #that he was willing to put them in danger #just so he could be in association with them #It’s selfish to think of it #and Dean did do everything he could to prevent it #but that’s the sad truth #It was selfish #so in the fourth gif #he says he’s glad that their life “can get back to normal now” #because with Dean #their lives were anything but normal #it’s all so heartbreaking #because Dean brought it upon himself #and now Dean has to live without them #because he couldn’t stay away in the first place #I mean, the phrase #Is it better to have lost and loved, than to have never loved at all #because right now #Dean has most certainly loved and lost #and he chose to loose it #Dean brought upon their injuries #so he’s guilty #he also brought upon their loss of memory #so now he’s just alone #with his memories of two people he loved #I mean he loved Ben like a son #like Sam #and he stayed with Lisa #I mean that right there says something different #than all of his past relationships #where they weren’t even relationships #they were just drunken one night stands #except for Anna x Dean #Lisa was his ONLY relationship #however unstable #Lisa and Ben knew about his life #and still took him in #which is why Dean justified his actions about staying #I can’t even compute logical thoughts anymore #I don’t even ship Lisa x Dean that hard #this scene #just gets me
so in class today, someone insulted Jennifer Lawrence by calling her a butterface, and i just stood up and yelled “NO ONE INSULTS THE PRINCESS OF TUMBLR”, but then someone else yelled out “EVERYONE KNOWS THE PRINCESS OF TUMBLR IS DEAN WINCHESTER”
this post gave me major second hand embarrassment
