     “We went to many, many, many doctors. They all said, ‘You will never have children.’ So I prayed to the Blessed Mother and promised to say a Rosary a day—ten days later, I was pregnant. Then I had another child, and then my husband left me. I didn’t have anybody to help me, but I’m blessed with a lot of faith—had I been married, I probably wouldn’t have as much faith as I do now.”

Day 3: Favourite Quotes

LET ME TELL YOU WHY THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT, UNDERRATED DISNEY FILMS OF ALL TIME OKAY:

1. It teaches kids that we should never judge others by their appearance or what we’ve seen on the surface.

2. It teaches kids that despite if we’ve been taught to be afraid of or hate something or someone that looks/acts differently than us, we should learn and try to understand them before we judge them.

3. It teaches that two sides that may hate each other don’t always have to stay that way - they can learn and grown from each other’s mistakes.

4. It teaches that hatred is not always the answer; to listen, to step back, and see through someone else’s eyes. It teaches patience, understanding, and wisdom.

5. IT TEACHES CHILDREN THAT PEOPLE CAN BE FORGIVEN AND DO BETTER.

6. It teaches children that even if you make a mistake, you can learn and grow from it like Kenai.

Seriously I just love this movie to pieces it is so important to me and I wish more people knew/watched it because wtf it’s AMAZING.

NOT TO MENTION THE ENTIRE CAST IS POC AND CULTURE WISE IT IS RESPECTFUL AND IT IS JUST A GREAT MOVIE OKAY

thecaviot asked:

Thank you!! c: Honestly I can see the skepticism on people's faces when I tell them I'm a theatre education major, but I really don't care because this truly is my passion and I'd love to teach theatre every single day. c:

Ordinary Answer:

I have friends who gave up their dream just because of that reason. It shouldn’t matter what others think, it should be what you want to do with your life, its your decision, not theirs. One of my favorite teachers in highschool taught theater for my senior year. We didn’t do much because he was new at theater (originally an English teacher) but i still very much enjoyed the class.  Good luck in following your dream :)

No one will ever understand how much I love You’re Not Good Enough by Blood Orange. so. friggin. good.

thecaviot asked:

Wow that all sounds so amazing! I know exactly what you mean about growing your own food and eating it, it really does taste so wonderful c: & I've done theatre ever since I was little, I've always loved it! It's been a huge passion of mine that kept me out of trouble c: agriculture sounds amazing then, you'll have to tell me how it goes if you take it!

Ordinary Answer:

That sounds wonderful! I’m glad you are going after your dream, many people just settle for whatever they can get and don’t really pursue their passions. You seem like you belong in theater :) you have that feel. I was going to guess that you were in some sort of creative study.

thecaviot asked:

That sounds beautiful! I planted a lot of herbs when I was at home c: I plan on continuing that practice! I'm studying theatre education. Art sounds like it would be a wonderful study. I can't imagine what agriculture classes would be like, would you go out and work with plants? I would love that.

Ordinary Answer:

I actually lived in California my whole life until just recently. Last year I planted a very successful garden, my favorite was the cherry tomatoes, they were so amazing and full of flavor! I just love organic food, it tastes so right especially if Ive grown it myself. What inspired you to take theater? Art would be something i would love to take but the profit is very little compared to agriculture, plus Im pretty good at self teaching so that would most likely be something ill do on the side of agricultural studies. I would work with plants, soil, even animals. With this I could be useful to those needing food, which there will always be a need for food.

Here are some wonderful facts about Sea World’s orcas!
The average lifespan of wild orcas ranges from 30-50 years, although some females can easily make it past 80 (a wild orca named J2 or ‘Granny’ is 103 this year!). The lifespan of a Sea World orca is around 25 years, the median age being 9. But at least they put on a good show!
Don’t worry, collapsed dorsal fins are a common condition, although in the wild only sick or injured orcas have collapsed dorsal fins. All of Sea World’s males and some females have it, it makes them look unique! 
The size of Sea World’s tanks compared to an orca is about the same as a human to a bathtub. Lot’s of room to stretch and move!
Wild orcas swim 100+ miles a day, they would have to swim around their tank 1,400+ times a day to achieve that. But that seems like a lot of work, and you may see the animals hanging out near the surface of the water or on the bottoms of their tanks for hours. That’s a lot more relaxing than swimming all those miles!
Sea World gives their orcas a Valium-like drug to stop the whales from acting aggressively towards each other and to numb their minds from their vastly uninteresting concrete tanks. Buying a ticket to Sea World is an excellent way to help them pay for these drugs that they pump their animals full with!
Many captive orcas show abnormal behaviors like head bobbing, chewing on concrete, and self mutilation by banging their heads into the side of the tank. Obviously just temper-tantrums! Silly things.
In the wild, there has been only one orca attack. Bad orca! While in captivity, there have been over 100 attacks and 4 deaths. These animals just need more training, it couldn’t possibly be related to their confinement! 
Food is used as reinforcement for tricks. Do a trick, get your dinner. Don’t want to do a trick? I guess you don’t eat tonight you stubborn thing! 
See? Sea World isn’t as bad as people make it out to be! Oh, one more fact: for every $1,000,000 Sea World makes, about $600 goes into conservation efforts (about $0.5 a ticket). I’m so glad they care about conservation of the ocean! Amazing work!
