Birthday, Children, and Crying: multismusa-deactivated20170218 What she says: I'm fine What she means: I understand the Chronicles of Narnia was at its heart a fairytale with theological analogies for children. But why did Lewis never address how they had to adapted to life on Earth again. Why does no one talk about how the Pevensies had to grow up with a kingdom of responsibilities on their shoul- ders, only to return to Earth and be children Take Lucy, she was youngest and perhaps she adapted more quickly-but she had the memories and mind of a grown woman in an adolescent body. Edmund literally found himself in Narnia, he went from a selfish boy to mature and experienced man. He found a purpose and identity through his experiences to come back as just Edmund, Peter's younger brother. Did people wonder why the sullen, sour boy came back, carrying himself like a wisened king? Did his mother wonder why he and Peter suddenly got along so well, why they spent so much time together now? And Susan, the girl of logistics and reason came back with a difference in her. She learned how to be a diplomat and ambassador, Susan the Gentle had to live to endure not-so-gentle circumstances. She had the respect she wanted, only to be just another teen girl. And Peter, he entered the manhood and maturity he so wanted. He earned the responsibility and stripes he yearned for. He learned to command armies and conduct the menial tasks demanded of a king to rule a nation But he came back, appearing to be just anther glory-hungry boy. Not to mention the PTSD they must have struggled with. Especially Ed mund. How often did he wake up in a sweat, screaming a sibling or comrades name? His parents believe it's the war, but it's an entirely different one he has nightmares about. How often did he have trouble with flashbacks and mood swings? And how many times did he and Peter sit over a newspaper or near the radio listening to reports on the troops. How often did they pour over lost battles and de- bate better strategies. Did their parents ever wonder why they seemed to understand flight war so well? How long was it before they stopped discussing these things in front of people? Why does no one talk about this??? cocoartistwrites Why am i fucking crying limblogs Why does no one talk about how the Pevensies had to grow up with a kingdom of responsibilities on their shoulders, only to return to Earth and be children It's not addressed because it's understood. It was the shared experience of the generation You are describing coming home from World War One, battle wearied and aged beyond belief, but walking around in the body of a youth. C S Lewis went to the front line of the Somme on his nineteenth birthday and went back to complete uni in 1918 after demob saxifraga-x-urbium Not seen it with this very very pertinent addition before 119,012 notes Remember, Listening to Her Is Important

Google, Memes, and Struggle: Google Gives $1 Million Grant to Non- Profit That Helps Black Boys Get Into Tech Industry @balleralert TEMe Google Google Google IORS WARRIORS le RGoogle Google DERS WARRIORS asgle Google Gives $1 Million Grant to Non-Profit That Helps Black Boys Get Into Tech Industry - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Oct. 27, Google announced they will be giving a $1 million grant to TheHiddenGeniusProject, an organization that pushes for the representation of young black males in the tech industry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Oakland-based company provides mentorship for black boys and supplies them with the knowledge and experience to change the way society sees scientists. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The tech giant's donation will aid The Hidden Genius Project with expanding to outside cities, training staff members and motivating more youth to take on jobs in technology-based fields. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ San Francisco Google.org principal, Justin Steele, became intrigued by the non-profit when they competed in the 2015 Google Impact Challenge, in which they were finalists. The organization won $500,000 from the challenge and has since gained more than 1,700 new Bay Area students through their mentorship, boot camp program and workshops. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This work builds on over $35 million in Google.org grants focused on providing opportunities for underrepresented students to become pioneers of technology, and we’re excited to see how The Hidden Genius Project uses this new grant,” Steele wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Google is one of the several tech companies that struggle with diversity amongst their employees. Its last diversity report from June showed that there is only 1 percent of black tech workers with the company, and only 2 percent overall in the U.S. workforce.

Confidence, Confused, and Crush: how to know you are a norse mythology geek upon seeing THIS in the thor: ragnarok trailer you scream, "FENRIR! HI PUPPER!!! auntieval ME, WHEN THEGREAT WOLF FENRIR BREAKS FREE OF HIS CHAINS AND RACES OFF TO CONSUME ODIN, SIGNALING THE BEGINNING OF RAGNAROK AND THE DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD ohmy gosh puppy! come here pap!l oh, you are SUCH a good bon! let me pet your tummy. IT GOT BETTER OMFG IM CRYING Yeah.. me too. I wanna pat the very big pupper poztatt And this is how The End is stopped. Not by the gods or goddesses, the other races than man, no. It is Tumblr. As a mass running after a now confused and tail tucking Fenrir whining softly as the crowd chants "PUPPER! PUPPER! PUPPER! kyraneko Better yet: Fenrir escapes his chains and lopes forward to destroy the earth, and is met by a crowd of people. An army, Fenrir thinks, and bares his teeth in a ferocious snarl and charges toward them They cheer Wait. cheer? Fenrir slows, confused. He smells no fear senses no rage. This is a very strange army. The first hand-weaponless!-reaches for himc he tenses, ready to tear the offending limb to shreds, and lets out a high little yippy whine when it pats him about the ears Immediately the noise is reproduced by some four or five of the nearest humans, he smells excitement; more hands are patting him It's nice The humans crowd around him, patting him and scritching him and shuffling around to give others a chance. Voices coo, and make puppy noises, and someone catches just the right spot and he cocks his leg and scratches himself, drawing a multitude of oohs and ahhs and cheers and squees At some point, his hunger awakens at the scent of burnt fleshç a human has brought him what he later learns is a hot dog: he swallows it in one bite, to more cheering, and looks around hopefully for more It is not long before more is bought: steaks and Big Macs and bacon; it seems like much of the group has brought him a snack of some kind and was hoping for a chance to give it to him. The End of the World is supposed to be at hand, but Fenrir does not care. His hunger sated, his battle-lust swept away by a tide of gently petting hands, he rolls over, careful not to crush his many companions, and takes a nap. Who's a good boy?" they ask him, over and over s this some psychological warfare, he won ders, designed to undermine his confidence and remind him that he is nothing more than a monster who needs to be chained? Who's a good boy, huh, huh? "Who's my good boy? And then one of them answers the question for him. You are Me? he thinks. But if there was any doubt, she confirms it You are, yes you are Fenrirs tongue hangs out of his mouth as he grins. 'm a good boy! @lectorel Good post FENRIR IS PUPPER Odin will be the first to tell you, FENRIR IS A VERY GOOD BOY LARGE PUP MUST PET how to know you are a norse mythology geek upon seeing: "Odin il be the first to tell you, FENRIR IS A VERY GOOD BOY you say: the fuck he won't Source: sweetdreamr 40,277 notes If this isnt the final act Ill be mad
