Gikoko's BLOG!

It’s nice that I was looking through the words to the Ode to Joy from Beethoven’s 9th (though of course I know Friedrich Schiller wrote the poem, An die Freude), and came across some good words on living positively.

'Gladly, just as His suns hurtle

through the glorious universe,

So you, brothers, should run your course,

joyfully, like a conquering hero.’

Seriously though, if you don’t think asexual representation is important, you need to get educated, because it is really hard to live in a sex-centric culture and not be interested in sex. 

I have seen so many posts about finding out about asexuality after joining tumblr and you know what word almost all over them have in common? Broken. 

And that’s fucked up.

Petition: Hong Kong Government: Legislate a ban on the sale and possession of shark fin in Hong Kong.

From Honduras to New Caledonia, from the Bahamas to the Maldives, the people have spoken. And governments have listened. Now is the time for Hong Kong to wake up! The public is ready. The business sector is behind us. Now is the time for a total sale and possession ban on shark fin in Hong Kong. By doing so, Hong Kong will take a giant step to join the conservation efforts of numerous countries around the world who have enacted shark protection legislation. In Latin America it will join Honduras. In the United States it will join California, New York, Hawaii, Washington, Maryland, Delaware and Oregon. In the Pacific region it will join Palau, Tokelau, Marshall Islands, French Polynesia, Cook Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and New Caledonia. Even China has agreed to stop serving shark fin soup at official banquets, to take effect in the next year or two.

Banning shark fin from the streets of Hong Kong will be the single most important marine conservation achievement of the year. It will be an important step towards protecting the health of our oceans. It will also remove the stain on Hong Kong’s reputation as a world-class tourism hub.

This petition is endorsed by: Shark Rescue

BALLSIEST. PETITION. EVER.

IF THERE WAS EVER A HEAD TO THIS DRAGON - THERE IT IS.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE THIS WOULD MAKE??? WITHOUT THE ISSUE OF SHARK FIN SOUP WE COULD CONCENTRATE ON THE ISSUE OF BYCATCH AND SOLVE THIS ISSUE PERMANENTLY.

THIS IS IMPORTANT PLEASE SIGN IT

Yet again, more notes than signatures. Actually sign these things, people. Ugh.

This is far too upsetting.

Hey there! I recall you once said that Moominmamma is your favorite character in the Moomin series, and I'm wondering if you can elaborate on that. Are there specific reasons as to why she's your favorite? And what do you like about her? I'm genuinely curious here.

Hey~ (wow, when did you send this, I was in Scotland for a week, there)

Well, that’s a good question. Basically, I think Moominmamma is the pinnacle of loveliness. Super kind, sweet, calm and collected even in a crisis. She’s immensely warm and caring, and also has a lot of wisdom in her, like with her potions and the like, and she can also tussle if it’s needed, like that time when she jump-tackled that fish Moomin was struggling with. There’s no problem Moominmamma can’t fix. She’s the best.

Just

Look

At

Her

(Also she’s a terrible liar, and that’s really funny)

Something I realised, after having to help many international tourists count out their change, is that American coins don’t actually have the number value on them??? Like no wonder all these poor tourists are so confused
