Question Meme~~ 

I was tagged by future-subjunctive!

Rule #1, always post the rules.
 Rule #2, answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, then write 11 new ones. Rule #3, tag 11 people then link them in the post. Rule #4, tell them you tagged them. Rule #5, tell the person that tagged you when you’ve answered the questions.

  1. Do you have a favourite item that you often use or that you keep on your person which is quirky in some way? If so, can you describe/post a picture?
    Man I’m wracking my brain but I really can’t think of anything! Super boring answer.


  2. Are there any fictional characters you are frightened of/have been frightened of in the past?
    Whenever I would watch Beauty and the Beast when I was little, I always had to go hide when the Beast first appeared because he scared me so much. I could come back when he started talking to Belle and stuff, but I hid while he yelled because he scared me. I was very scared of loud noises and monsters as a kid.


  3. Share a youtube video that always cheers you up or makes you laugh
    I don’t really have one go-to video, I just like looking at videos of adorable animals. But I will say this one never fails to make me laugh. (NSFW language)


  4. Favourite colour to wear?
    Shades of wine red.


  5. Do you prefer to walk fast or slowly?
    Slowly. I have runner’s knee and so my legs are almost constantly aching or easily made sore. 


  6. Anything you can’t go a day without doing?
    Umm… thinking about Dragon Age? lol I am such a loser.


  7. Are you a town mouse or a country mouse? :P
    I suppose I’m more of a country mouse, unless there’s something in between. I literally grew up in the woods, and the nearest town (honestly it was more of a village, it had two streets) looked pretty similar to the old west towns you see in movies, extremely tiny and built in 1818 with most of the original storefronts in tact. But I still like being near a town and getting some of that feel. I just don’t want to be in the middle of it all the time.


  8. Is there any music, or tv show, or movie which makes you feel particularly nostalgic?
    Oh man, how much time do you have? Watching Sailor Moon or Gundam Wing makes me instantly nostalgic. Listening to The Beatles always brings back memories, my dad practically never played anything else. Watching the old Watership Down animated movie always makes me feel strangely nostalgic as well. Despite it really not being a movie for very young children, I had it and watched it nearly as far back as I can remember. I don’t think I really understood it until very much later. As a kid I used to watch a lot of movies I didn’t understand and just make up my own stories from the images I did understand. I did the same with pictures in books before and even after I could read. I had this painfully boring old biographical movie about Chopin I used to watch constantly starting around 3 or 4 years old (God only knows where it came from, certainly not my parents), and I had no idea what the actual movie was about because I spent the whole time I watched it making up a story based on people’s actions and expressions and things I understood here and there. I tried to watch it again when I was a teenager and I fell asleep in the first five minutes. I was a strange kid lol.


  9. Is there a song that you’ve been listening to more often than usual recently? Does it reflect a particular feeling you have right now?
    Hmm… recently I’ve just been listening to a lot of pump up songs or songs with good beats, because I put them on at work on days when I’m in the back and I need to move fast. I haven’t gone seeking out good music in a couple of months, I should do that.


  10. Do you prefer the light or the dark?
    The dark. I’ll go out of my way not to turn on lights unless I absolutely have to sometimes.


  11. What’s one nice thing that happened to you today, even if it’s a very small thing?
    I got some really nice compliments from my coworkers today on how hard I’ve been working this week. 

I know I’m breaking rules but my brain is too fried to come up with questions or tags tonight, I’m sorry. Thanks for including me though!

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half. 

There are a lot of diseases that don’t get the support they need because there aren’t a huge number of people who experience them, so it’s difficult to raise awareness, difficult to find investors, basically people don’t have the emotional connection they do with something that a huge number of people deal with and the pharmaceuticals to treat them aren’t as profitable. Like, a friend of mine was at an MS fundraiser and the grim joke used to try to lighten people’s spirits for feeling like they weren’t raising as much money as they wanted was “Let’s face it guys, we aren’t cancer”

The ice bucket challenge has made people donate something like ten times as much to ALS this year than previous years. I know people are concerned about wasting water, but you’ll do a lot more good on that front if you take a stand against bottled water and soft drinks, particularly from companies like Nestle, than getting mad at people trying to raise awareness for an illness that let’s be honest not a lot of people were very familiar with before this. Just be responsible, be aware, and try not to take your frustration out on the wrong people.

I know I already posted about this several times, but I think it’s worth mentioning again because this is so true. Most people had never heard of ALS before this challenge. And if you’re irritated that it’s so prevalent now or that there are so many videos clogging up your feed, is it really that difficult to just keep scrolling? Do you really have to be annoyed about something that’s making an astronomical difference where there was barely even any recognition before?

My siblings watched their dad fight this disease for years. They watched him slowly deteriorate little by little, going from an incredibly independent, strong, and hard-working man, to someone who could barely lift his head, barely move his eyes. They watched as his body rejected even a feeding tube, watched as he needed to be surrounded by machines just to breathe. But in all of that, his mind was 100% in tact and the same as it ever was. Can you imagine how terrifying that must be? I can’t begin to wrap my mind around it. He died just a couple of days before Christmas two years ago. Raising this kind of money, doing this kind of awareness campaign, it’s making a difference in lives like that. It’s taking huge steps toward making sure another family, another person, never has to go through that. 

So if you find this irritating, I think you really need to look at your priorities. This isn’t the stupid “post the color of your bra to raise breast cancer awareness but don’t actually donate or do anything useful” thing, it’s making an actual difference in actual people’s lives. And it’s so desperately needed. 

And one final note: that post going around about “wouldn’t it be funny if pouring a bucket of water over your head caused ALS”? No. It would not be fucking funny. Try laughing about it while you watch your family member with their incredibly sharp mind trapped in a body that is literally shutting down with them trapped inside. Jesus Christ, have some fucking tact.
