“We criticize dictators for quelling dissent and silencing protestors with tactics like curfews, we’ll certainly speak out when it’s happening in our own backyard," he said. "The people of Ferguson have the right to protest peacefully the lack of accountability for Michael Brown’s shooting.”—Amnesty International sending team to Ferguson.

My sleeping brain likes to give me these evolving, pick your own ending type dreams. There’s a Doctor Who themed one I really like, where the Doctor is explaining why the baddies are being bad when they mistake him and Rose for a couple and try to take them both.
He stops mid-explanation, gets all choked up, and goes, “Oh, you think we’re…?” And if Rose wasn’t, you know, unconscious, she’d roll her eyes and say now’s not the time.
ONCE YOU GET THIS YOU HAVE TO SAY 5 NICE THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF PUBLICLY AND THEN SEND IT TO 10 OF YOUR FAVORITE FOLLOWERS (NOT BACK TO ME, I ALREADY DID IT) THINKING GOOD THOUGHTS ABOUT YOURSELF IS HARD BUT IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER SO GIVE IT A GO, FOR THE SAKE OF SPREADING POSITIVITY :)
I sent these out (anon because I’m shy SHUT UP) but forgot it was still in my inbox, silly me! So here we are:
I never sit still for long. Unless I am actively vegging out, I like to be doing something. There’s even a map on my wall that I put up to look at when I’m zoning out to Tchaikovsky and so on.
I’m always making things. Can’t speak for the results, but my room’s covered in stuff that I’ve drawn, painted, folded, etc. Livens things up and makes it feel like home.
I love to clean. I’ll even whistle while I do it. Sometimes I’ll hum or sing old show tunes. I don’t mind if things are messy, but it always feels a little nicer when things are clean, right?
I’m usually pretty cheerful. Even when it’s 8 am and I’ve had no sleep, I’ll still take the time to say hello and ask how someone’s doing. I just don’t like to stay in a funk for long if I can help it.
I have lots of ideas. All the time. About everything. Sometimes it’s a problem, but more often it’s just fun. It makes prompting fellow fic-writers pretty entertaining.
I want a superhero who is just the Saver of Kittens or something. Capable of transcending time and space to help cats big and small from ignoble fates like falling into the sink or closing doors on themselves. A true hero.
