"…spending almost everyday with each other. We went mad in the end. You saw us. We were just insane. We developed a whole language, a whole world.” - Matt Smith


Tennis Icon Li Na Officially Announces Retirement

Excerpt from her official Facebook letter (read the full letter) :

My dear friends,

For close to fifteen years, we’ve been a part of each other’s lives. As a tennis player representing China on the global stage, I’ve trekked around the world playing hundreds of matches on the WTA tour, for China’s Fed Cup team, at the National Games and at several Olympic Games. You’ve always been there for me, supporting me, cheering me on, and encouraging me to reach my potential.

Representing China on the tennis court was an extraordinary privilege and a true honor. Having the unique opportunity to effectively bring more attention to the sport of tennis in China and all over Asia is something I will cherish forever. But in sport, just like in life, all great things must come to an end.

2014 has become one of the most significant years in my career and my life. This year was full of amazing highlights, which included winning my second Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open and sharing the extraordinary experience with my country, my team, my husband and my fans. It was also a year filled with difficult moments, such as having to deal with the inevitable - making the decision to end my professional tennis career.

The amazing moment in Australia was filled with joy, happiness and extraordinary sense of accomplishment. The task of finally making a decision to hang up my racquet felt a lot more difficult than winning seven matches in a row in the Australian heat. It took me several agonizing months to finally come to the decision that my chronic injuries will never again let me be the tennis player that I can be. Walking away from the sport, effective immediately, is the right decision for me and my family.

When your debate crush gives a speech
I should be replacing the sleep in my eyes with the sight of you.

1 a.m. thoughts turn
to your 1 a.m. city
where I should now be.

After all this time

It still kinda breaks my heart. It still kinda hurts. It’s still kinda there.


It’s the greatest feeling. It’s like picking at a scab and making it bleed but then covering it with a cute band-aid.

anonymous asked:

Please. tell me how that article you translated is going to make me fucking like that group.

Uh, hello. I’m fine thank you. Well…

  1. I, uh, never translated this to bribe you into becoming a fan or what not. 
  2. I translated this because I felt like it was interesting for the fandom to read. 
  3. I don’t force people to like a group. I mean why should I? 
  4. “that group” oh no no no. I-N-F-I-N-I-T-E :)
  5. I spent my whole 2 hours on this article, jeez, give me some credit and at least fake that you were aight with it. okay? okay. thx. 
  6. Good night, and don’t ever feel like you’re pressured into something. That’s bad! 

idk man i just… honestly what i miss most about school is just drinking on the weekends with my friends and just hanging out and not even giving a shit that we were up until 2 am. i really miss the friends i made in college. i could be 100% real with them and like… it was fine. i didnt have to worry about expressing my “feminist” opinions about shit because they had the same trains of thought. i didnt have to worry about remaining in the “closet” because they knew me and there was zero judgment in our group. and i could even talk about my paganism around them like. we had no secrets. everything was out there and they were amazing and i just. miss them. i miss that.


Okay so now that I’m pretty much back and I have break next week, I’m seriously tempted to just drop all of my drafts and start over

My Grace muse has returned, just not for those threads
