'ambitious driven'

I think my love is too intense.. I require raw passion and basically your soul tbh. I expect honestly and loyalty as a default. I’m highly ambitious and I’m driven by grinding and building so we can achieve a financially free future together. I love growing with someone, helping each other become better people. I live for spontaneous shit, goofy jokes and over the top romance. I just wanna build an empire with someone whilst being in the most sincerest deepest form of love and devotion.
For some, going to work and coming home - curling up in front of the TV is enough. For me that’s great, but I still prefer the unconventional life - where we might not see each other every day because we are building but when we do, we create life long memories and just embrace. I know it seems like a lot to ask but it isn’t impossible.

Ok, so here are my thoughts:

Yuuri: Hufflepuff. He’s definitely hard working. Yuko says that he would practice any chance he got growing up. He’s a very caring person- urging Victor to go be with his dog when he was ill, even at the risk of his own performance. Also he is adorable. 

Victor: Ravenclaw. He’d dedicated, specifically, to his art, to the point where he says he has neglected life and love for 20 years. To say that he obsesses over his specialization is an understatement, but like any good Ravenclaw, he’s intensely creative and can think outside the box about whatever he’s put his mind to. 

Yurio: Slytherin. Easily the most obvious here. Yurio is very driven and ambitious, to the point of being rather unkind and abrasive to others at times. He is dedicated to gaining prestige, even if he has to “Sell his soul” to get it.

Scorpio Decans

~ Scorpio Decan 1 (October 23rd - November 2nd) 

I am ruled by the planet Pluto. My personality is characterised by outer coolness, inner passion and ambition. I am driven and ambitious and love the idea of competition and challenge. I work tirelessly to fulfil my ambitions and I am driven by the thought of success - both emotional and financial. I need to feel completely satisfied in all aspects of my life and will not accept second place. I appear to others as cool, collected and at times calculating. I have the ability to manipulate situations and people to my own advantage in an apparently rational and cool headed way. However, under my cool exterior there is fire and passion underneath and this is my powerful driving force to get what I really want from life. As with all Scorpios sex and sensuality are very important to me and I seek high levels of satisfaction when it comes to sex.

~ Scorpio Decan 2 (November 3rd - November 12th)

I am ruled by the planet Neptune. My personality is characterised by seductiveness, shyness and artistic talents. I can be quite shy and don’t like expose too much of myself even to close friends and family. I prefer to work quietly in the background and shy away from the limelight. I also don’t mind being alone and pretty much enjoy my own company where I can fantasize and dream my imaginative dreams. I am a generous and attentive lover and use my powers of seduction to get what I want. I am very intriguing, mysterious and seductive to others. People can easily become beguiled by me. I have a great deal of artistic talent and can become a successful artist, writer, or musician. However, my shyness might hold me back in seeking celebrity fame and fortune. I can experience great highs and lows and will be adversely affected by mood swings. the mood swings can be very intense and often frightening to those around me - they think they have figured me out but are shocked or surprised by another side of me that they don’t know.

~ Scorpio Decan 3 (November 13th - November 22nd)

I am ruled by the Moon. My personality is characterised by great will power, a caring nature and sensitivity. I have tremendous will power and will resist temptations that can lead me astray. Once I have decided on a cause or project I will be driven to do my utmost to make it successful. this includes relationships where I will relentlessly pursue happiness even if it means self sacrifice. I love to nurture those close to me and even if I am not a parent, I will act as one. I care deeply for those I love and derive great pleasure and satisfaction from looking after their interests. In turn, I need to be nurtured, but will seldom allow anyone to do this for me. As a Scorpio from the element of Water, I feel things very deeply. I am more sensitive and mysterious than I would like to admit and can hurt very easily. Unkind words or thoughtless actions trouble me deeply and wound my soul. I will never show how hurt I feel and prefer to hide my feelings away privately.

“I refuse to buy into these comparisons, because you don’t see it happening to men. All you seem to see is “Which New Mother Is Sexier?” “Who’s the Hotter Mama?” “Who’s Got The Better Booty?” If we continue to show young girls that they are being compared to other girls, we’re doing ourselves a huge disservice as a society. I surround myself with smart, beautiful, passionate, driven, ambitious women. Other women who are killing it should motivate you, thrill you, challenge you and inspire you rather than threaten you and make you feel like you’re immediately being compared to them. You just try to lead by example, and you hope, someday, that if we talk about feminism enough, maybe we’ll start to actually see it make a difference in the way young girls perceive themselves and each other.”

Making The Grade

NEW MINI-FIC COMING - DECEMBER/JANUARY!  


Poppy Miller is ambitious, smart, and driven.  She’s the youngest editor in the history of her university’s newspaper, and has made the dean’s list every single semester.  Niall Horan is a brilliant graduate student, who’s always let academics come before his romantic life.  He currently holds the record for most classes taken in a semester (6), and the record for least amount of dates in the entire Ph.D. program (-1, it’s a long story).  The only thing standing in the way of Poppy’s early graduation is passing Niall’s Political Theory class.  Easier said than done…

A uni AU about misunderstandings, awkward first impressions, and deciding what matters most in life.

I talked a little bit about this over on my twitter but I want to talk more about Jean Jacques Leroy, or JJ from Yuri on Ice!!!

He’s a fantastic athlete, driven and ambitious, but egotistical to the point of fragility. JJ is an asshole, yes, but I also feel like he’s putting on a show at all times. 

Look at how quickly the YOI meta machine found out and disseminated the information about how gay skaters are actually treated (versus those who are not out, it’s widely available, google it I’m sleepy). Given what we know about how gay skaters irl have to be Very Careful not to be openly gay in public, and how obviously critical the show has been of opposite-sex relationships (Georgi and Michele both have really… warped views of relationships and reality), JJ is likely no different and his relationship with his girlfriend will also end. So…

…is it possible that JJ is a sleeper for real skaters? That he is performing heteronormativity the same way that he performs on the ice, and does so in order to avoid criticism of his flamboyant nature from a very conservative skating community? 

If so, the way he judges and treats women like objects isn’t misogyny alone, it’s the use of women as shields from judgment. “Look at me, I’m getting married too” isn’t a grab for attention from the gays and their marriage. It’s a bid for the heterosexual charade he’s poured himself into, the parts of himself he has ignored or outright denied to make his position at the top of the podium unassailable.

aries; the will-o’-wisp // 21 mar - 19 apr

“Will-o’-the-wisps are lambent flames seen flickering over marshes and fens. These mysterious lights are said to lead travellers astray. They have a mischievous and sometimes malevolent nature, luring unwary travellers into dangerous situations. “

“Aries are strong-willed and spontaneous, encouraging others to step out of their comfort zone. They are driven and ambitious, often making them over-achievers in anything they set their mind to tackle. Aries are fire signs, and so too is their warm and passionate personality.“

a quick note on selecting a major

i answered an ask about this earlier and i wanted to briefly remind everybody of a few things, especially as hs seniors have to contemplate their majors, and students in general think about their future careers:

  • you do not need to know what you want to do with your life. especially when you’re 18.
  • you are not eternally bound to whatever career path/major you choose. interests change; this is okay. many people switch majors and have several different jobs throughout their lives. 
  • to go in as an undecided major makes total sense. do not feel bad, lesser, or stressed if you don’t feel strongly one way or the other.
  • when thinking about your major, the subject does not have to be the class you got the best grade in. it should be a class and topic that actually interests and engages you.
  • not feeling 10000% committed doesn’t make you less ambitious, or driven, or smarter, than people who do.
  • EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY
  • THE SUN IS SHINING
  • THE STUDYBLR COMMUNITY HAS UR BACK
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE LOVE U
  • NOTHING IS FOREVER UNLESS YOU CONSTANTLY CONVINCE YOURSELF THAT IT IS
  • JUST BE YOURSELF !!!
Taurus State Of Mind

For a Taurus, things are very black and white – grey areas make them uncomfortable. The simple life is okay with them, everyday doesn’t have to be an extravaganza. They just want to have peace of mind. Naturally driven and ambitious, they don’t mind doing the work. Even on their “lazy” days, their mind is going a mile a minute figuring out what to do next. Love for them is all or nothing. Half ass commitments get you all the way gone. Their anger is not because they’re harsh, it’s because they’ve been bottling it up way too long.

Slytherin / Scorpio / Horned Serpent

Requested by the lovely @lyra-timelord

 This combination is purely water elements, these guys are natural geniuses at potions. And for those that enjoy it, they become prodigies.

These are the traits and head-canons I have for the Slytherin, Scorpio, Horned Serpent combination:

  • Order, categories, rules,
  • Cunning, ambitious and driven
  • Curious and intuitive,
  • Subtle and secretive, can be utterly ruthless and vindictive
  • Tend to either embody the best or the worst in the Slytherin traits, their only middle ground is when they are bored intellectually,
  • Their Slytherin ambition and Scorpio drive pushes them to achieve their goals and their Horned Serpent intellect studies and searches for the most efficient way to achieve said goals,
  • Very passionate about their beliefs, values, projects and goals,
  • Big and deep thinkers, spend a lot of time considering the pros and cons of an action,
  • Loyal and trustworthy, their friends know that they can tell them anything and they’ll keep it a secret and have your back,
  • Obsessive about their goals and interests,
  • Can be very mysterious, because its fun to be mysterious,
  • They are attracted to the dark, twisted, and forbidden mysteries of the world from the day they are born, only they can determine whether they will study the dark arts in order to oppose them, or to embrace them.
  • Scorpio Slytherins have uncanny wisdom, insight into human psychology, and high “emotional IQ’s”, pair this with their Horned Serpent intellect and tendency to be ruthless and underhanded with their tactics and you have a very dangerous player in the court,
  • often exist in a state of total ego, and if misused or hurt, can nurse the wound and seethe for decades. 

“It’s not dark magic. Magic isn’t dark or light, it’s how it’s used. You could use Rictusempra to the extent the other person can’t breathe, and their body convulses so much with no air going to their and they die.” - They start out making a statement and then go off on a tangent which generally is scary af, and they don’t intend it to be.

Scorpio Slytherins are definitely someone you want on your side. They make fabulous friends, and terrifying enemies.

Katara’s No Trophy Wife, But She Got Treated Like One

“Trophy wife is an informal term for a wife, usually young and attractive, who is regarded as a status symbol for the husband…” -Wikipedia page for Trophy Wife

Other than all the regards to being older, this is what K@taang became. It shouldn’t and didn’t have to be this way, but the narrative wrote it out this way in the end. She became a quiet housewife, and that’s not a negative thing, but it’s not Katara. That wasn’t her characterization. Katara was a vocal, opinionated, impassioned, ambitious, career and family driven woman. In this day and age, there is no reason under the sun she couldn’t have been depicted at achieving both– or at least attempting to.

What is your Personality?

1. Sanguine: The person with this type of personality is impulsive, pleasure-seeking, outgoing, warm, friendly, sociable and charismatic. They tend to enjoy social events, meeting new people and making new friends. They are often lively, energetic and enthusiastic. They are also creative and imaginative. However, sanguine individuals are also sensitive, empathic and compassionate. On the downside, they may struggle with following tasks through to completion, good time keeping, being organised and remembering things.

2. Choleric: The person with this type of personality is ambitious, driven and likes to take control. They are often marked by energy, passion, determination, a clear focus and firm commitment to goals. They tend to dominate others and like to have their own way. On the downside, they may be impatient, intolerant of those who do things differently, and may be subject to mood swings.

3. Melancholic: The person with this type of personality is a deep thinker, who takes life seriously, and feels deeply about the things that matter to them. They are usually introverted, and very private, people. On the downside, they have a tendency to over-think problems, or to worry excessively about fairly minor things. They are usually independent, self-reliant, have strong principles and tend to be a bit of a perfectionist.

4. Phlegmatic: The person with this type of personality is laid back, relaxed, kind, contented and happy to go with the flow. They are non-judgmental, accepting, peace loving and flexible. On the downside, they may be viewed as lazy and lacking in passion, direction and energy. The phlegmatic person makes a wonderful friend!

@erubadhriell tagged me to do this! Thank you! I’ll tag: @ferociousqueak, @bloomingcnidarians, @arteriusbrothers, @mordinette@mistsonfire, @ionswitch, and anyone else who has OCs that they want to talk about!

Which of your OCs is:

  • Older? Hannah Shepard, who is in her late 50s/early 60s during the trilogy (and is a few months older than her husband Jonathan, I think).
  • Taller?  Jerusha (Jedi Exile). Not sure what her exact height is, but she’s the only one of my OCs who strikes me as being particularly tall.
  • Richer? Probably Hannah, due to her being quite driven and ambitious, and having had a long career. She wasn’t going after money, but it was a nice bonus to her success.
  • Neater? Hypatia Surana. She’s very fastidious!
  • Nicer? Revan. Although, it’s not always a sincere niceness.
  • Smarter? I dunno, they’ve all got a different kind of intelligence. Hypatia Surana is the most book-smart, Layla Shepard is the most quick-thinking and analytical, and Revan is probably the most socially intelligent.
  • Funnier? Jonathan Shepard.
  • Better friend? Either Layla Shepard or Hypatia Surana. It takes a while for Layla to allow people to become her friend, but once it happens, she takes her responsibility to them very seriously. Hypatia, on the other hand, is very eager to become close to people because she felt isolated for a lot of her life. The downside is that she sometimes overcommits herself to people. 
  • Swears more? Probably Jerusha. She’s my most quick-tempered OC.
  • Reads more? Hypatia Surana. Being a good student was always her highest priority, and she still studies whenever she gets the chance.
  • Most creative? Jonathan Shepard. He’s an author (and possibly also an illustrator) of children’s books.
  • Troubled? Layla Shepard I suppose. It’s hard to go through what she went through and not be troubled, which is part of why she basically disappears from the public eye after the war.
  • Morals? Hmm, probably Jonathan. He can’t compromise his moral compass, even though it’s not exactly aligned with everyone else’s.
