OKAY SO THE GIVER IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK AND I LOVE IT AS MUCH AS ANYONE COULD POSSIBLY LOVE A BOOK.
I HAD BEEN WAITING SO LONG FOR A MOVIE ADAPTATION. MORE THAN A YEAR AGO I READ THE WIKIPEDIA SUMMARY OF THE FILM AND I BEGAN TO HATE EVERYONE INVOLVED.
I DREADED THE DAY THE MOVIE CAME OUT AND WAS SO AFRAID OF BEING DISAPPOINTED.
TO ANYONE WHO HASNT SEEN IT AND IS STILL HATING IT BECAUSE OF THE TRAILER OR WHATEVER, PLEASE PLEASE GO SEE IT.
THE CHANGES THEY MADE THAT YOU THINK ARE IMPORTANT ARENT BECAUSE IT STAYS AS TRUE TO THE BOOK AS I COULD HAVE WISHED FOR.
IF YOU ARE MORE CONCERNED WITH THE MINOR CHANGES, YOU WILL SERIOUSLY BE MISSING OUT ON THE BEAUTY OF THE MOVIE.
I am so sick to death of eating being a requirement. Someone just give me a pill already that will give me the exact caloric intake I need to get by.

People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
I don’t get this anyway, puppies might be cute, but holy shit the training. Like…adopting that one-two year old adult dog is AWESOME. They can come pre-trained. That beats cute any day.
Yeah. That is a problem that I have heard about. The overcrowding issue. No health care system is perfect, everything has it’s flaws. My grandmother was injured or sick over in England once and she didn’t have to pay a hospital fee. I still would personally take overcrowding over not being able to get health care at all due to costs. They ignored me at the hospital a week back when I was really sick because I have no insurance at the moment. But I hear ya, my friend from Canada says it can take a long time to get in to doctors as well. Thank you for your input anon!
