I am so over people thinking that Leis look like this:
A lei takes hard time and vigorous work. We (Hawaiians) wake up at the crack of dawn to gather whats needed to make the lei that we want. It can take hours or days to make the leis and Hawaiian’s make leis with only good intentions and love because they believe that if you make a lei with malicious intent it will come out into the lei. There is many different ways to make leis and we also make leis from shells and feathers. It isn’t only Hawai’i that makes leis but throughout Polynesia fellow Polynesians make leis in their own style.
To call the above image a lei is disrespectful to my culture and I want that shit to stop. That isn’t a lei, the images in the photoset are leis.
uh Hi everyone!! i know this is kind of out of no where but this is my good friend Ashley. I love her so much and she’s such a fun,loving person, and she needs help. She’s been fighting aplastic anemia for over 2 years and she recently lost her hair due to chemotherapy, and she’s only 15. For those of you who don’t know, aplastic anemia is a condition in the bone marrow where its unable to make enough white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Its very similar to leukemia. It has caused her to miss a numerous amount of school, and she has had to undergo many surgeries and doctors appointments. In fact, she is unable to return to school for the rest of the year. she’s been gone since December.
Because of her condition, she can’t be out in the sun, take the stairs, and she gets very nauseous easily. If she has to be outside for a long time, she needs a wheelchair. At school I had to ride the elevator with her and make sure she was okay every so often.
Unfortunately, her family is unable to pay for the treatment she desperately needs. I don’t know if this will work, but I was hoping that if i posted this, some people on tumblr would help donate. The money would go towards a bone marrow transplant. It costs $10,000 and so far they have only made about $1,300.
Please im asking this as her friend and someone who cares about her. If you could just signal boost this or even donate a dollar it would mean so much to me and her family as well.
Donation for Transplant
There’s only about a month left until this campaign closes so please help.
Thank you so much.
REBLOG THIS ! You can save Ashley’s life… I know we can do it ! It’s only $10,000… It’s nothing for tumblr ! WHERE ARE THE NOTES!
I dunno… sometimes i think i spend too much time on art for niuniente’s AU.
These two stars always brighten up my day!

[04.11] Happy Birthday, Otoya!
I LOVE HOW DMMD GIVES YOU OPTIONS!
"Do you want an emotionally stunted boy who had a terrible past and needs your help to grow emotionally and understand that the world isn’t as bad as he thinks it is and that love is really a wonderful thing and not everyone is out to use him? HERE YOU GO!"
"Are you into becoming intimate with the one that has been with you as long as possible and has protected you as much as he could and tried his best to keep you from breaking down and sees you as the most important person? Coming right up!"
"Robots that were originally made to be horrible and malicious but ended up being discarded due to being seen as an error and were then raised by an old man to be as compassionate and as selfless as possible and loves you wholly, even to your end? Heyooo~!!"
"Think it’s attractive to try to enjoy a heavily morally ambiguous character and a character that was not made to be completely aesthetically attractive and was not meant to be glorified or romanticised and has a lot of intricacies underneath his façade of monstrosity? We got that too!"
"Are you into emotionally depraved and sociopathic monsters that are deeply rooted in the plot and explain a lot of the background information of the game and are horrible, horrible people and yet you acknowledge that and want to explore the extents of their sociopathy? Hell, why not!"
"Are you that cutie who loves their childhood friend and wants to be even closer to them and wants to love them and help them grow and developed romantic feelings for them and wants to help them help slowly get over their past and their emotional distress? Here, I guess."
Do you want a person who is your friend, just your friend, and wants to acknowledge you as his family and kind of treats you as the brother you never had? Yeah, have this guy.
