I feel like Grunt would always stop by Shepard’s cabin just to look at the fish.
“I came to the United States when I was 13 years old. For a long time, I didn’t have my immigration papers as they were being processed from 1995 until 2005. Many times, I walked down this street completely despondent and wondering what would become of me and what would happen. I walked around not feeling any connection because most people don’t get it—they don’t understand how hard it is.
I finally got my papers and graduated from this university behind me. Now I work as a software engineer. And I’m feeling a real sense of pride. I am here. I made it despite all the struggles. I guess that’s my story: I made it.”
I wonder how many stranger’s stories we make it into? You know, maybe someone saw you in passing and told their friends about how pretty the girl in the lavender sweater was. Or maybe they overheard you say a joke and repeated it to their friend, confessing that they heard it from some guy at the store.

Without a doubt Grimoire has been hugely influential not only in terms of developing dolly-kei style, but also vintage boutiques in Japan. You only have to be in there for the breifest amount of time to get caught up in this wonderful world full of strange delights and charming clothing.

Five thousand credits says it was Wrex as a joke.
There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
Man, I should really sleep but I’m like wide awake rn. Maybe I’ll do something I haven’t done in ages and read, since I got The Hour Game for Easter…
Tomorrow I reeeeally need to get my hair fixed because I hate it, and I hope that getting it cut again won’t make me hate it even more because ugh I’m so sick of being unhappy with the way I look.
Also I need to fill out my registration for classes and get that out in the mail.
ALSO I really need to write.
