and dreaming of a better day

I hope that some day, you find an amazing girl. The kind of girl who means everything to you and makes you want to spend every moment of your time with her. The kind of girl who keeps you up at night, just thinking about her beautiful smile, and when you finally fall asleep, she’s all you dream about. I hope she’s the first thing to cross your mind when you wake up in the morning. I hope she changes you in a way you could never understand, yet you know it`s for the better. I hope she’s the kind of girl you would die for. The kind of girl who could make you cry, even though you’d never admit it. The kind of girl who makes you want to go out and do something special, something that means everything to the both of you. The kind of girl you can have silly fights with, then kiss and make up and hold her in your arms like you`re falling in love all over again. I hope you make memories with her you never forget. I hope she’s your world, and what you have with her is nothing less than perfection. And I hope that one day, you lose her. I hope you mess up and as hard as you try to keep her there with you, she slips through the cracks of your broken heart. I hope it destroys you, because you realize you’ve lost the person you once called your everything. I hope you see every moment you spent together spin away down the drain like it was waiting to happen. I hope you stay up at night because she’s on your mind and when you fall asleep, she haunts your dreams. I hope her beautiful smile stays pressed in your mind like a scar that won’t fade away. I hope you realize that you’re a new person because of her, I hope your new self feels incomplete without her and you miss the old you. The one that was okay with being alone, because you’d rather be the heartbreaker than the heartbroken.

Today is the day. If you asked me a year ago where I thought I would be today, I would have never guessed this in a hundred years. If you told me that I was running my first Big East championship as a freshman running for Villanova, I would have laughed in your face. But dreams do come true, and I could not have asked for better friends and teammates to have by my side. There is no other school I would rather be running for. So time to go out and show off our wildcat pride💙🐾💙

I have a dream

I have a dream of a store where customers aren’t babysat by the company they shop at.

I have a dream where customers and higher ups don’t get to treat employees like shit just because they think they’re better than them when actually they’d be lost without them.

I have a dream of opening a store where prices are fair because we don’t take returns on shit we clearly shouldn’t.

I have a dream where people who want to follow the basic niceities can just have a smooth transaction and go on with the rest of their day instead of being badgered with bullshit questions that they don’t want to hear and the employees don’t want to ask.

I have a dream where retail employees can actually have set hours week to week instead of varying bullshit where they have to request a day off to make any fucking plans.

I dream of a better retail.

An explanation of my absence…

…if you care. If not, scroll past!

I’ve become overwhelmed with my final semester of my Master’s program. Tumblr takes up a lot of my time because I feel so inclined to catch up with all of you when I log on. If I miss even one day, I feel like it’s impossible to keep up. I still love you all, don’t worry.

I don’t know if it’s going to get better, worse, or stay the same in the time to come. For the next couple of months I’ll be pouring a lot of time and energy into finishing my Master’s project so I can graduate, plus looking for summer employment.

The good news is, I’ve been accepted to a PhD program for the fall. So my dream is coming true - in a few years I’ll be Dr. wishiwasmorticia!

All I know is I’m tired and I’ve been working hard.

At any rate, I’m going to try to not stay away so long from now on.

Setup Saturday / 9 Anthesterión 2.698

Welcome, Devotees!

Take a good look at your Home Shrine.  Is it everything you want it to be?  If not, try one of the following:

  • Remove an object that you think no longer belongs on your Home Shrine.  Is it still important to you, or have your Gods/Spirits/Thoughtforms/Entities asked you to keep it?  Put it somewhere else in your living space—so long as it feels like it belongs there!
  • Have something you’ve been meaning to cleanse/purify and add to your altar space?  Today’s the day!
  • Dreaming of the perfect altar?  Put together a Home Shrine Wishlist.  You don’t need to go out and buy everything—but it’s helpful to get an idea of what you want on your altar eventually!
  • Got your Wishlist put together?  Got money?  Go get one of the items on your Wishlist!
  • Something about your Home Shrine setup bugging you, but you can’t put your finger on it?  Try rearranging things and see if you like it better.  (You can always go change it back!)

Today in the Hellenic Calendar:

  • According to the Attic calendar, it’s the 9th of the month of Anthesterión.
  • The Hellenic Calendar is made up of four-year cycles based on when the Olympics were held in ancient Olympia.  We are in the second year of the 698th Olympiad.
  • The 9th of the lunar month is sacred to the Mousai (Muses), Rhea the Mother of the Theoi, and Helios the Sun.  Drew Campbell seems not to recognize this, suggesting instead that Dionysos and  His family should receive reverence today.
  • Drew Campbell’s list of daily devotions suggests reading Orphic Hymns 29 to Dionysos, 41 to Misa, and 43 to Semele.  Semele is, of course, the mother of Dionysos, and Misa is either another name for Rhea/Kybele or a female/androgynous form of Iakkhos, one of the Daimones associated with the Eleusinian and Dionysian Mysteries.
  • NOTE: Regarding the Orphic Hymns, the public-domain Thomas Taylor translation combines the first two prayers (#0, “To Musaeus,” and #1, “To Hecate”) into one ginormous prayer.  The Apostolos Athanassakis translation keeps the two separate. uses Taylor’s Translation (again, because it’s public domain), but Drew Campbell drew from Athanassakis.  So if, say, Campbell suggests using Hymn 34 (“To Apollo”), Your Mod will follow Taylor’s numbering system and link to Hymn 33 on  The more you know~
  • For those of you who would like to learn ancient Greek, this day of the month is called the enáte histaménou (roughly pronounced “enn-AH-tay hee-stah-MEH-noo”), meaning “the ninth of the beginning [of the month].”
  • The ancient Hellens divided their lunar month into three sets of 10 days (or two of 10 and one of 9), called “decades,” rather than a number of 7-day weeks.  This first decade is a good time to start new projects!
  • Know any good shrines?  Have suggestions or corrections?  Send us an ask or fan-mail!

all i think about, dream about and basically want to do all day, every day for the rest of my life is re-live hanging out and eating sandwiches at 2 am with this majestic being. <3 (HERES THE STORY for you curious souls :] )


"She is so beautiful."

Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking and loving and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the day takes on a new and deeper meaning.

So my latest daydream - partly musing on Hannah’s return, partly musing on ways to push deancas subtext closer to text, mostly just me dreaming my dreams…

Cas’ grace problem has reared its head again - this could be via a variety of ways, but my favourite is with Cas collapsing while out with the boys and having to be taken/carried back to the bunker (perhaps put in Dean’s bed, idk… ;p)

Dean and Sam spend some time researching in the Men of Letters’ library for a solution to Cas’ problem, to no avail, and so that night during a quiet moment to himself Dean PRAYS, desperately, for help.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Taylor. I’m a junior in college studying Graphic Design from Washington State. Volunteering is something that I really love to spend time doing. It brings me a lot of joy to see the happiness in other people if I can do just one small act to make their day or their week better. In 2012, I went on a humanitarian trip to Jamaica and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. We helped to build a fellowship hall for the local church there and led a camp for the kids. My favorite part about humanitarian trips is getting to meet the wonderful children in the area who never fail to teach me that I don’t know true happiness until they show it to me. I am headed to Nicaragua in November with Random Acts to build a high school for the kids of San Juan del Sur. It will give them a chance at secondary education and a better life. 

Please consider donating to my crowdrise here to help fund the building of a school for these kids. 100% of the proceeds will be going towards Nicaragua. 

The minimum donation on crowdrise is 10$. If you would like to donate and can’t afford to give that much, send me an ask to let me know and I will supply the rest. I have 32k amazing followers. If even just 500 of you were willing to donate 10$, we’d be at our goal!

Anybody who donates will get a promo from me and my undying love and my firstborn child. I am a graphic design major and would be more than happy to design anything for anyone who donates. Also cliffnotesofanerdand freetobeyouandmichi-me have volunteered to write ficlets for any donors, and sharctopus has offered to draw art! If you cannot afford to donate but would like to contribute by offering fics or artworks for donors, please let me know. I am eternally grateful to these ladies for helping out.

Anybody who signal boosts this post or any of my previous posts about Nicaragua will be included in a group promo that I will post every friday from now until fundraising closes in July. So many wonderful people have reblogged this now  that it actually crashed Word and even my computer when I tried multiple times to import the list of rebloggers. So, I will work on developing another way to thank all of you wonderful signal boosters, just give me a few days, but please still consider signal boosting!!

Please let me know if you have any questions!
