Tohoku Kids and Adults enjoy their dream ride on Pokemon Train.
As Tohoku was devastatingly affected by a 2011 tsunami, this train offers people who are still dealing with the aftermath an escape from their troubles, even if it’s just for awhile. The locomotive is called the ‘Pokemon with YOU train’ and travels between Narutō and Chōshi.

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.
Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.
Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.
But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.
And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.
We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.
We never know when the bus is coming.-Rachel C. Lewis, Tell The People You Love That You Love Them (via missallyq)
"I wish I’d partied a little less. People always say ‘be true to yourself.’ But that’s misleading, because there are two selves. There’s your short term self, and there’s your long term self. And if you’re only true to your short term self, your long term self slowly decays."
I wish I could be more. -Six Word Story (via creatingaquietmind)

I was just reading this article that came up on my LinkedIn feed that was called “How to Answer Stupid Job Interview Questions” and one of the questions that they point out is “What’s your greatest weakness?” and their suggested method of answering is:
Great question! I used to obsess about my weaknesses when I was younger. I took classes and read books like you wouldn’t believe, and then over time it occurred to me that I should be focusing on the things I do well, like designing financial reports. Other things — graphic design, for instance - aren’t for me, so I steer myself toward the work that jazzes me and where I can make the biggest impact.
I’m going to be completely honest. I LIKE it when people can honestly answer this question about what they aren’t good at. The reason being is…we all know that every person on this planet could use some improvement in some ways, but the only way to improve is to be introspective and cognizant of those areas of weakness. When a candidate can actually say “My weakness is not wanting to make waves” or “I have a hard time seeing the big picture” or whatever it may be, it shows that they have self-awareness and, given this, are probably going to be more open to being coached out of these things in the long run.
We already know what you’re good at - that’s probably what you’ve been trying to sell us on all interview. But when you can be a bit more honest with us and yourself, that gives us a window into whether you can assess yourself critically and, if you are hired, it also gives the hiring manager ideas on what to work on with you for your professional development. You can definitely turn your answer into, “My weakness is this and here is how I’ve been working on it,” which is even better. But saying things like, “Well, I’m not good at graphic design so I do something else” is just in poor taste. I think one of the most annoying weaknesses people can tell me is “I wasn’t at my last job long enough to learn about ____, so I wasn’t that good at doing it.” That has nothing to do with you as a person. That just implies that, given enough time and training, you would have been fine. It’s not an inherent weakness.
But that’s just my opinion.
