So, this may sound kinda dumb, but I live in America and don't really keep up with whats going on in the world cos it gives me headaches, but what's happening over in Scotland?
samandriel replied:

Okay I’ll make it as short and sweet as I possibly can since I know that the American media doesn’t really report on it much

  • Tomorrow, 4.3 million Scottish citizens will vote on the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?”
  • If the yes vote wins, Scotland will gain independence from the United Kingdom and split with England, Wales & Northern Ireland. 
  • If the no vote wins then they stay in the union, but in a desperate attempt to keep Scotland, the British government has promised them more autonomy if they stay. 
  • The Scottish National Party (SNP) has been pushing for independence for years, the Prime Minister sorta just decided to let Scots vote on it, and now he is reeeealllly regretting that. 

Why people want independence:

  • The Scottish parliament has very little power and what power they do have can be devolved. This means they can be changed or taken away by the UK parliament. Scary.
  • Nuclear weapons are being stored in Scotland. Understandably, they want the nuclear weapons the hell away from them.
  • Scotland and England have really different political views. 
  • The UK keeps voting in conservative parliaments and overall Scotland is not conservative so it really sucks for them because they are not fairly represented 
  • They don’t want the National Health Service privatized
  • Scotland literally struck oil so they got that going for them

Why people don’t want independence:

  • England is making a lot of threats right now like “you will not be allowed to use the pound as your currency” “we will pull out all our big companies from your country” 
  • Independence would probably be very hard economically speaking, there is no guarantee that their financial situation will get better
  • Something about being better together 
  • The UK is a pretty huuuuge VIP when we’re talking about world powers so people don’t wanna leave that
  • It’s not certain that the European union will support an independent Scotland
  • Some people actually like Westminster

The vote is neck and neck right now so there is absolutely no telling what the outcome will be. 

It’s exciting and terrifying.

Hi Lisa! Two weird questions you are very much welcome to answer privately or not answer at all if you wish: 1) What makes you get up every morning, for example, achievements or goals, or the yearning of new experiences, etc.? 2) Will humanity win or lose by trying to achieve happiness to only themselves? Or is worth it that some sacrifice themselves for something they believe is bigger than them? Is there somewhere in between that?

oh gosh, those are some complex questions! my answers definitely won’t be sufficient hahaha

1) I guess what gets me up every morning (i’m gonna answer this as if i don’t stay up til 5 am then sleep in til like 1pm half of the week hahaha) is my loved ones (my sister, my mum, my friends, grandparents, my cats hehehe, all of you wonderful people on here!)

and also, just general curiosity and hope. despite everything that has happened i choose to believe that whatever tough/low moments you might be going through right now, those are temporary, nothing lasts forever and you will have the wonderful moments again at some point, and of course you’ll have more low moments, but then you’ll have happy moments again,

and i guess i’m just curious to find out what those moments are going to be!

2) this is the harder question to answer! do you mean themselves as in each individual person for themselves, or do you mean humans for humans and destroying their planet etc? I don’t really think the answer is a simple binary one way or the other, i think that we can only do our best and live for the people and things that we truly believe in whilst trying to leave the biggest positive impact and minimizing the negative impact. As just one tiny person on this huge planet, if we are able to truly change something or someone for the better then that’s a win in my book.

When you watched buffy the first time around, what was your reaction to Buffy's death? Anya's death? Spikes (sort of) death? Tara's death? Sorry for all the deaths, just curious to know how your reactions for each! LOVE THE BLOG XX

hey :)

funny story actually! i can’t remember the first time i watched the episodes! i was only like 7ish maybe at the time and my memory is comparable to dory from finding nemo hahaha

I’m pretty sure i wasn’t happy about any of them though!, that seems like what i would think! buffy’s death (i’m referring to the second time specifically) was one of the most powerful moments in the show and buffy is incredible in that episode. Buffy has a terrible time in s6 and it’s painful to watch but i am glad that the show didnt end with the gift because I really loved the message of it’s real finale and that summed up the show perfectly (sorry this isnt talking about the deaths but i’ll mention it anyway! well i suppose it links in bc i’m glad she came back!)

anya’s death is terrible because it was so quick and it’s one of those ones that if things had gone slightly differently, might have been avoided but it works in the finale bc it is what it is. it’s a casualty of war, not all the good guys make it out alive unfortunately, but i love love love anya and i do wish she was still alive

spike’s (sort of) death i actually really liked (not in a bad way hold on i’ll explain) - it made the finale devastating and dramatic (things that i love in a show hahaha) and buffy and spike’s hands going up in flames is one of my favourite shots of the series and links back perfectly to buffy’s “i want the fire back” line in once more with feeling. and if spike hadn’t used the amulet he wouldnt have had the moment where he really feels his soul - i think that is such an important moment - and i loved that he was back for angel s5 because the spike/angel dynamic was fantastic 

 tara’s death is, to this day, one of the most awful, truly devastating things that happened in the show. tara was (IS) wonderful and anyone who has been following me for more than 5 minutes knows that i’m never going to be over it! Come join me in denialtown :)

(also thank you! :) <3)


I love when people randomly follow me because I assume they’ve just seen something I said and went “ah yes. This nerd seems particularly strange. Let’s see what else it does”
