I’m taking time away to dream, I’m taking time out to clean up my room, and when I clean up, my room will gleam, because dreams aren’t as unreal as they seem.

I’m taking time away to dream, I’m taking time out.

Put my records in their covers and then I’ll put the albums back into their place, and I’ll sweep up this morning and when I look at the clock, I see it says ten.

I’m taking time away to dream, I’m taking time out.

Well I just can’t be sure any more, I just can’t be sure. No, I just can’t be sure any more, I just can’t be sure.

I’ll pick up my pants even though I might wear them, wear them today; smooth out my covers on my bed so, after I wash them I’ve got some place to go.

I’m taking time away to dream, I’m taking time out.

Well I just can’t be sure any more, I just can’t be sure. No, I just can’t be sure any more, I just can’t be sure.

I’m taking time away to dream, I’m taking time out to clean up my room, and when I clean up, my room will gleam, because dreams aren’t as unreal as they sweem.

I’m taking time away to dream, I’m taking time out.

Time Away - PJ & Gallagher

He was on a vacation with his girlfriend. Wow, that was quite the unfamiliar sentence. Gallagher and PJ had packed up their bags, hopped on (her friend’s private jet) plane, and were now in sunny and beautiful Miami. They were staying at her friend’s lovely house, which he admittedly felt a little weird about because he was used to paying to stay somewhere on vacation. Nonetheless, it was fun. They’d gone to the beach on their first day, and now that they were on their first night, they were both a little tired but pretty happy. 

After eating dinner, Gallagher suggested a walk. The sun had gone down, but the moon was full enough that the beach was very visible. Plus, walking along the shore at night was actually very nice. The tide washed up over their feet, the night not completely quiet but not quite as loud as it had been during the day. “Ouch” Gallagher spoke as he stepped on a shell. Leaning down to pick it up, he was surprised to see little legs poke out. Out of surprise, he tossed it into the water, not expecting the movement. 

There’s an element of rushing into the house even though it’s still pretty late. Later than he’d originally planned on being home. He’d tried to get off earlier, he’d worked plenty of late nights and would work plenty more to make up for it. But based on the day Stiles was having, he wanted to be home a little sooner. But then a crisis happened and someone got sick and here he was.

He sets his stuff down before jogging to poke his head in on Jack, who was sound asleep. Before going to find Stiles, finding them in their bedroom. “Hey.” he said with the tone of ‘i’m sorry i’m late’ ‘i’m sorry about your day’ wrapped into it.  He moves to sit next to him frowning. “I am so sorry Stiles. Are you okay? Is your laptop okay? His brows are furrowed and he’s reaching a hand out to rub at the human’s shoulder.

Summary:

“Zayn, this is an incredible thing the guys are offering to us. We…we haven’t had a night off or time to ourselves or even a date since Bell was born. This could be good for us.” Liam squeezes back and looks warmly into Zayn’s eyes. He knows he is the only one who can slowly chip away at Zayn’s resistance and he knows that they really do need this, a break, at least for one night

Or….Louis, Harry, and Niall offer to babysit Zayn and Liam’s daughter for the weekend

So I came home yesterday from a great time at camping, sure my patience was tested spending three days without any filters with my youngest sister and dad.But all was well, we went on trails, spent loads of time at the beach, we played, we had a bonfire. we roasted marshmallows, we sat around, we stargazed~ Which was probably one of the highlights of the whole time~ I caught up on my reading, and I sketched a cute little chipmunk and named him peanut :3 Now I can’t wait to go to Montreal with my best fran, and see what shenanigans we get up to!

It's slowly creeping up on me...

The excitement of spending Christmas in NYC with my family! A few weeks ago I wasn’t looking up to it entirely, there were certain “things” that were keeping from being excited about this. 2 weeks from now, at this very time, I’ll be cruising down New York City, cruising down Times Square enjoying the sites, people and sounds of that great city. 

It’ll be a break from my reality; a break from my routine. A break from people I don’t want to see or hear from (sorry, didn’t want to sound mean) for the time being. A break away from MY life. I’ll be taking a break from church for 2 weeks, putting my duties aside and letting someone else step in for that time. 2 weeks away from school and work, 2 weeks away from all my worries(hopefully).

NYC, I’ll be seeing you in 2 weeks time! Please be nice to us… haha

Sometimes you have to take some time away from everybody and everything, and just find yourself. Find who you truly are. What your purpose is. What you are destined for. And sometimes you can only achieve this by taking a step back from everything and taking a good look at what part you play in this world.

165/367: Denali - Time Away

—-

Fucking cunt.

It probably says something bad about me that I want to stab myself in the heart because my computer’s been running slow.  What weird inwardly directed anger.  

Also I had a dream where a giant snake was trapped in my house & I think she was trying to seduce me.  Or kill me.  Not sure which.  I was trying to find a sedative & syringe (both of which, apparently, i was sure of having somewhere in the house) so I could put her to sleep & into a cage.  Never thought of crushing her skull.

Fuck my dreams.  They’re all dumb cocksuckers.

He sends us illness so we can better take care of ourselves.

^^^THIS^^^

I sadly have not been taking care of my body like I should have been and it’s showing. For months I’ve just been so exhausted and tired. Just burnt out. Earlier this week, God showed me why He is making me go through this waiting season: so that I can get some much needed rest.

God really does care so much about us. He is so kind.

I was dying to go off to grad school, but He knew that physically I could not handle it. I’m glad He didn’t let me do it because who knows what could’ve happened. I could’ve gotten really sick and needed to be hospitalized or something. I’ve been so worn out from pulling all-nighters one after another for months for that fashion show back in April and never really recovered.

So now I’m taking time to recover for however long I need to. Catching up on sleep and getting in shape. It’s a whole new lifestyle change that is much needed and I will definitely need to perfect if I am going to be successful in the ever-busy industry of fashion. Fashion will still be there. I know He won’t let me give up on the dream.

God truly knows what’s best.

And I am so thankful to Him for not giving me what I wanted at the time, but giving me what I needed.

He’s a great Father. <3

Time Away || Luhan-Social

The off day. The fated day on the weekend when he didn’t have to go to work… was actually so terribly dull. The Cottage was closed for painting again and that left the hybrid with nothing to do. He whined as he walked out the back door and down the stairs from the upper level of the same building in which he worked, hands shoved into his pockets. 

Stepping foot of the metal stairs, something made him freeze.. There were never usually people in this alley-way. Ever. 

“Well look who it is. One little freak without his fancy clothes..~” One menacing voice called from behind, causing his ears to press down under his beanie. Ignore him. Walk on, where somebody could see him. It was all good in thought, but not in practice. Baekhyun paled as a second man stepped in front of him, not wasting a second to grab his throat with bruising force.

Eyes grew to near dinner plate size as he gasped for air, whimpering as he was thrown against the cold brick walls. His face contorted at the pain, holding his shoulder as he fell to the floor, coughing, gasping for air. Any reprieve he could have hoped for was brief, as a foot surged into his stomach and fists into his face. The abuse continued, invisible to the rest of the world.

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
