I don’t know if anyone has posted this already, but I just read this and really wanted to share.
Hanyu Yuzuru was practicing on the skating rink near his home when the major earthquake hit in Japan on March 11th.
"I was on ice and I could barely stand. I escaped as the earthquake slowly calmed down, still in my skate shoes. I forgot to put the covers on the blades."
His skating shoes were messed up. The skating rink was no longer usable. His house was also damaged. He spent four days in a shelter with his family. There was a time when he wondered if he should continue to skate - but in the end, he realized that skating is something he can do for others. After this, he went all over Japan to practice skating.
"I am hoping that I will be able to make people from Sendai (his home town) happy with my skating." Yuzuru says.
This is only a rough and quick translation of two articles combined - but I really felt like this is one of the many things that makes him so lovable.
I do not own anything besides the translation
Princess Bubblegum’s handwriting is so nice
And then there’s Finn who can’t spell his name.
What Finn drew is a famous piece of WWII graffiti “Kilroy was here”. What does it say about Finn and his literacy that his signature is something that he likely saw on a piece of wall or machinery that survived The Mushroom War?
