When I say “please don’t take a picture of me” it’s not because I’m being bitchy and stubborn, it’s because if I see that picture I will seriously feel so bad about myself and think I am the ugliest thing on earth and sink a little deeper into self consciousness and hatred.
and before anyone says anything about selfies- those are controlled photos.
Okay, but can we talk about the way Michael kisses Lindsay?
How he grabs both sides of her face and there’s always that little gap between his fingers?
That little gap. You see that? Yeah.
But also how he’ll kiss her twice. Once on the lips and then again on her right cheek.
Seriously, you guys…

One thing I really love about Rin and his Australian parents is how they give Haruka his space before dinner. They don’t sit him down and drill him with questions (Lori and Russell probably understand his personality from all the things Rin told them over the years) but instead let him de-stress by getting to know Winnie the dog first. Rin is probably inside catching up with his Australian parents, but they seemed to let Haruka alone to get used to the surroundings first.
Haruka was clearly (and understandably) very nervous about visiting with people that spoke English (since English is his worst subject) but when they all sit down to dinner together, Lori and Russell were so gentle when speaking to Haruka, even re-phrasing questions so that Haruka would understand better on his own.
And Lori used some Japanese (and mackerel) to make Haruka feel more comfortable at the table. Even though it was one Japanese word, I think the familiarity of “saba” was enough for him to feel a little more part of the conversation.
They never rushed him to understand what they were saying, or made any comments on his accent or the amount of Japanese he knew, instead they just patiently communicated with him, and I think that probably helped make him feel more at ease, and possibly in a small way helped raise his self-esteem later on in the episode.
I’m also really glad that Rin didn’t enable Haruka by translating everything, but trusted his Australian parents to communicate in a way Haruka could understand.
Though there were also times they allowed Rin to translate to let Rin filter how much of his crush for Haruka would show.
This homestay part was really important to me because I’ve been to quite a few homestay dinners over the years (both in Japanese and Spanish) and I’ve encountered many different types of hosts and the ones I’ve always felt more comfortable with and learned the most from are the ones that acted exactly the way Lori and Russell did. Bless Rin and his Australian parents.

❝ And I know now that I need to mend my mistake, and mend our bond. ❞
I think Brave is so under-estimated. Here is a strong female protagonist, who undergoes a trial which changes her for good. She goes from selfish, immature and rash, wanting to do things her own way, regardless of consequences, to accepting to change, and selfless and understanding. It’s done so well, in my opinion. People assume that the title Brave, just means that she was brave, and courageous. But no, she was brave enough to accept change, her own change and see the errors of her ways.
Many times, when characters change, whether it be mindset or personality, they don’t exactly reflect back at their negative behaviors. Merida does that. She looks back at her character from the beginning of the movie and she realizes her flaws. God, Merida is one of the most beautiful characters ever.
Admitting you are wrong and trying to fix it is one of the bravest things you can do.
