JUSTIN TAYLOR APPRECIATION WEEK (from October 12 to October 18) "And that’s when it happened. When he came along.” Because we all need a little more Sunshine in our lives lately, and I think that makes this the perfect time to celebrate this amazing, brave, strong, loving character! So for the week of October 12 through October 18, every day will be dedicated to Justin Taylor. Each day of the week will have a theme, and you can make edits, gifsets, and fanmixes, or you can write some fanfiction or meta for those themes. For example, if you don’t make gifs or edits, you can write some meta about Justin’s character development through your favorite season (day 1) or some scene analysis about your favorite scene (day 2). Anyone can participate, and if you do, be sure to use the official tag so that we can all see the way you’ve chosen to show your love for Justin Taylor. The official tag is: jtweek2014
  • Day 1 (October 12): favorite season
  • Day 2 (October 13): favorite scene/moment

have fun everyone!

no but you don’t understand how badly i need sam to grab dean’s shoulders and shake him and ask why in god’s name he’d think that he deserves the mark of cain and deserves hell and deserves all of the bad stuff that’ll come with it because dean might make hard choices and might make mistakes but everyone makes mistakes but the difference between dean and most is that dean does things out of love and loyalty and a fierce protectiveness that few can match. and that the last place dean deserves to be is hell and the last thing he deserves to be tied to is something so dark because dean is good and he’s nothing like the demons and the monsters the evil people that deserve hell and there are just things in this world that are needs not wants okay? 

My name is Raquel Quiroga, I’m 21 years old, I’m from Spain and I’m studying a degree in Communication Studies. Since i was small I loved the world of photography. Creating my world through images is what I find amazing. The truth is, I do not know how to describe myself, I just know that life is there to take advantage of and do things that you really like, which I try to do. I do have plenty of time left and I hope that my experience in life will help me improve in the world of Photography.

So… I just started cooking three days ago. I don’t know what inspired me to, but I just kept looking up recipes for really easy dishes and I kept cooking every single one of my meals for 3 days straight. It’s giving a really weird high… Today I learned that cooking is one of life’s greatest joy… Sometimes it can even bring me more happiness than eating. It’s strange. It’s like cooking is science, art, math, a hobby, a life essential, a way to express love, and a journey to help you find yourself all in one moment. I’m going crazy. Life has so many lessons and joy hidden in the most precious places! In this moment, I just found in between the diced potatoes and carrots that are simmering in curry. I’m so happy right now! I don’t know if it’s the spice or what but I’m tearing up all by myself in my kitchen. Cooking is like making magic…

It won’t let me respond to this privately. booo. But if it helps, it was also a deeply sarcastic answer. I realize tone doesn’t translate well through text, but I promise you you’ll be hard-pressed to find very many people who love Jo as much as I do. She is someone who’s mattered a whole lot to me and my life for 14+ years and the person I am today is because of her AND her work. I don’t have it in me to utter a single negative word about JK Rowling, she is my ultimate hero/everything to me.


My heart is breaking. Ever since I was little (10,11 years old) I was bullied in school, to the point when I really wanted to end my life, but then I stumbled across Berryz Koubou, and they are what kept me going through all those hard years in my life. I know it sounds odd, but it’s true. Berryz was the only thing I could find comfort and happiness in, when I studied abroad in Japan during high school I was able to go to a concert and meet them afterwards. It was one of the happiest moments of my life.
I never thought I would see the day that they would disband. We all knew it though, right? Had to happen eventually. I wish with all my heart that one day, they will be able to know how much they have changed my life. How much they have done to help me go on, and how much I love them with all my heart. I wish them so much happiness.
Thank you Berryz. I cannot repay you.



Why I Don’t Date

lately more of my friends have started asking why I don’t go on a date just for fun.
Most of my long term friends get it, but if anyone has known me less than a couple years they just think I’m terrified of dating.
And I suppose I am scared-not of dating itself, but of dating the wrong type of person and getting caught up in BS that will distract me from what really matters in my life.

So I am creating a list for myself as a reminder that its perfectly fine that I don’t want to date.

  • I am more worried about money than finding love. Money to pay off school, rent, bills, help family. Money is what I need to get where I want to go. When I have feelings for someone I become very monogamous even though it isn’t asked of me and I am definitely not interested in that right now unless I happen to find the perfect rich bf. As much as I’m a hopeless romantic love wont get me a Phd or pay medical bills.
  • I am obsessed with getting in better shape for myself and improving my dance abilities and I know thats going to end up taking up more and more of my time as I advance more.
  • I don’t enjoy casual dating or casual sex, when I date I am looking for someone I have spark with mentally and physically. A person who will support me who I can support as we improve one another’s lives without controlling or changing one another. I am looking for something very real.
  • I’m not even remotely interested in men my age. The men I am attracted to are established and older. Meaning they are usually looking for something more serious or something completely shallow. I want something in between.(this is part of the reason I relished in being an SB “mistress” when I had it. I could adore the person without thinking it’d go anywhere past the boundaries we had) 
  • I usually don’t handle heartbreak well-now it seems I’ve learned to manage it better, but I also haven’t been in a serious relationship in years. I can’t risk falling off the map for a couple weeks right now.

All that aside-yes, if I found the right person they wouldn’t be a distraction or hold me back from my dreams, they’d love me and accept me as I am, hell they might even pay for my tuition. But I am much more realistic than that-I’d rather build my own dreams. I tried dating last year and it was hard I hurt people-people hurt me and it just showed me its not what I want or where I am in life.

Its not that I’m not open to someone special coming along, but they would have to be VERY right for where I am in life right now.
When something is meant to happen it will. 

I’m 100% working on me, loving me, building my dreams and I’m so sick of explaining that to people around me. I just want to blurt out “Trust me I know what I’m worth and how much love I can give to someone romantically. I’m beautiful, intelligent, open minded, honest, opinionated, caring, and goal oriented. AND IM ONLY GETTING BETTER PEOPLE.”

I’m fucking selfish and I’m loving it.

Fuck Yeah! BioShock: Infinite just passed 15,000 followers. It amazes me that this blog would gain so much attention by my fellow Bioshock and BioShock: Infinite fans. I was just happy when once upon a time we were at less than one hundred and that anyone was interested at all.

Each of you has helped Geeke and I to achieve something great and we’ve all come together to appreciate a wonderful game. I can’t thank each and every one of you enough for being apart of this experience. You’ve helped me to find something I love doing, something that I’m passionate about. It’s amazing how running a blog can really change my life.

To the new followers, we give a huge thank you and a warm welcome, but to the old we have to give an even larger thank you. Some of you were here at the beginning, when I opened this blog on February 16 of 2013, and others joined as the days went on.

You are all what makes running this blog worth it. You make me enjoy every minute and I love talking with you, answering your questions, listening to your theories, posting ours, and just posting in general.

So, again, we say thank you for everything.

Here’s to many more days!

- Cirque

I’m a freelance writer and zine-maker (as well as a musician and songwriter). I have so many stories to tell - both stories from my own life, and more fictional tales. Stories about nostalgia, love, desire & freedom & danger, home and place, the rust belt/midwest, wanderlust, music, punk, identity, wild girls, magic, and finding beauty in the grimy places. Stories made of bone & ink & dirty love. Stories that are written and printed in books or zines, stories that are sung and spoken. Your patronage will help me care for myself and my family while I get my stories out into the world. It will also help enable me to have adventures, to find more stories to tell. I need to tell these stories, and I think you just might need to hear them.

I have a Patreon now! On my profile, you can see a short video I made and read more about the goals I am working toward, as well as finding out about the stuff I’ll send you if you choose to be my patron. I know we’re all broke, but if you have a little money to spare, consider supporting a zine-making storyteller. And whether you can help me out monetarily or not, please consider sharing this post or the link to my profile so that other people can find out about what I do. Thanks, so much.

Lady A has been replaced (for those I missed earlier)

Im sure Im missing some people I want to include in this message. I have changed my name from Lady Artemis of the wolves. I just needed to escape from some people. Im sure it wont take them long to find me as they have several of the same friends I do but hopefully this will give me some time to just chill. Im notorious for just making changes without letting those that matter know and it was pointed out to me by someone most important hotteaandoranges… Love ya sweets! So consider this my letting yall know. God help me, give me strength, this will be my very last change for awhile. The drama bus stops HERE!!!!!!!

laurenlifts asked:

I have really long lashes and I cannot for the life of me find a mascara that doesn't smudge under my eyes when I put it on my bottom lashes. Help me please lol

Hello :)

For the bottom lashes I love using waterproof mascara because waterproof mascara doesn’t smudge or smear it just stays put. I actually use two different mascaras one for my top lashes (non waterproof) and one for my lower lashes (waterproof), usually a separating mascara so my bottom lashes don’t clump up!

You could even try waterproof top coat mascaras to apply on your bottom lashes. I sometimes prefer this because building up waterproof mascara is a pain to take off! You can even use it as a waterproof brow gel!

Try some waterproof top coats like

  • Bare Minerals Lock & Loaded Waterproof Top Coat $12
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Top Coat $21

Lastly, don’t forget to set your concealer with powder or translucent powder. If you under eye concealer is still wet and tacky your mascara will be a lot more prone to smudging and smearing. Make sure you set the under eye area and keep it matte!

It is so incredibly rewarding when this little orange icon pops up. For me it is validation that this is my purpose, that my calling truly is to inspire people and help others find more happiness in their lives.

This project has been a work in progress for years, but with some clarity this year… it is turning into something very real. I am grateful and blessed. Thank you to all of my followers for spreading the love!

Personally I believe Chloe’s step-dork (or step-dad) has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD) and he has a hard time separating memory from reality or current time. I have a cousin that lives with PTSD and while he has greatly overcome it (I’m so proud of him) the disorder will never truly leave him. 

People with PTSD usually have to find a way to control and rule over their disorder. Take my cousin for example, he got his from the War years back, at first it was terrible PTSD had ruined his life. Now he’s leashed PTSD and refused to let it take over his life, while I’m sure he still has flashbacks, it’s just not as severe as it used to be. He goes to a riding program with horses, which helps him alot. and he loves to brag to me about it (I’m a horsewoman and I used to work at the place where the program is so I know the horses). He works out a lot and is beefy, sorry ladies he’s taken. Which is my next point, he’s gotten so much better he now has a girlfriend. 

Chloe’s step-dork I think hasn’t really found a way to control his PTSD. Or maybe his military programming just goes off around her because she represents chaos to him. Either way I think his PTSD is currently mostly in control of his life. We’ll see in later chapters if he manages to get it under control or not. 

anonymous asked:

hi, i was wondering if you or your followers have any naruto recs where sasuke is the protagonist?

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of Sasuke so I don’t read many Sasuke-centrics. That being said, here’s a few I could rec:

Family Ties – black.k.kat

Itachi and Madara massacre the clan, but they miss one member. Obito, loyal Konoha ANBU and disowned Uchiha, suddenly finds himself out of the organization that’s been his life for eight years and raising a traumatized, orphaned child. Kakashi helps.

Or watches and plays the smartass, it’s a bit of a tossup.

Echoes – Rebirth of the Phoenix

"Find me a girl who doesn’t like me for my looks and then we’ll talk." Sasuke Uchiha is about to realise that love waits for no man, and that it can, quite literally, bump into you when you least expect it. Sasusaku AU

What if you don't want to stay? I don't want to. I feel like the only reason that I'm still here is to please other people. If those people weren't here I would have been gone a long time ago. I don't want want to be here. I don't want to stay. I don't want help and I don't want to fake being something I'm not. I hate everything about me and my life and I'm so far down that I know that I'll never be able to get out again.

You can change that. You can stop living for other people. You can love for yourself. Because it sounds like you’ve spent your life caring only for others, which is noble. But in the process, you’ve lost yourself. You can find yourself. You can establish your identity. And you can do it for you.

He cares.

And he’s saved my life, more than once. I thank him for that. Thank you Mark. The playthrough of ‘The Static Speaks My Name’ spoke to me… It reminded me of the darkest times in my life, but Mark, ‘a guy talking to camera, half a world away’, helped. He took the pain away. To any of my followers, please know, that I care. I love you. You matter. I hope, if it isn’t Mark, that you find that person, or that object, hobby or whatever, that’ll change your life for the better. I am here for you. No matter who you are, where you come from, what your personality is like, if you need someone, please know my ask box is open. 

Thank you Mark for saving mine, as well as so many others’ lives. You are our hero, as we were yours.
