DO YOU THINK THERE ARE BETTER THINGS IN LIFE

konojosuke  asked:

does ford like rick? does dipper like morty? does summer hate mabel or love her? HOW WOULD THEY REACT TO INK OMG EACH OTHER. THAT SOUNDS SO AWESOME CAN I GET YOUR OPINION

okay well i feel like ford and rick would have this kind of rivalry, like i think they would try to invent to coolest things to try to prove that ones better than the other. “how great of a scientist are you? y-y-you get stuck in an alternate dimension and it takes you w-what?? like 30 years to come back? amateur..” i feel like they would do nothing but bicker and try to get stan to choose sides (which he cant bc he loves both of them stanchez amiright its a beautiful thing). i also feel like rick has threatened fords life a few times tbh.

okay dipper and morty? i think they would be buds i think they would just go on and on about the weird freaky shit theyve seen (not in a one up kind of way just friendly shit). “look at this journal! grunkle ford wrote it and its full of weird creatures who live in gravity falls!!!! this triangle named bill tried to destroy everything!!!!” “o-oh geez! t-thats crazy! one time me and grandpa went inside his car battery where he put this little universe and in that tiny universe there was another tiny universe and then there was ANOTHER tiny universe!!! its-its- i mean its pretty wild!!!”

i feel like mabel would want to hear all about how badass summer is, all the times she saved rick and mortys asses. i think summer would braid all of mabels long thick hair, maybe teach her some makeup skills, maybe tell her to not get to caught up in boy nonsense bc like 97% of them arent worth your time maybe?? i feel like summer would be the girly big sister wendy isnt and mabel LOVES it. (buuuuut thats just me thinking positively, if summer is like me when i was 17, she might not love the idea of being around a 13 year old :/)

and you didnt ask about this, but rick and stan are in love and are basically an old married couple who bond over making counterfeit money :)))

"You'll leave no change behind" that's bullshit. When I first came to this site, when I first followed you, I was very homophobic, I might've been a little racist without realizing it, it's how I was raised to think and overcoming that was one of the hardest things I've ever done because I've lived this life of oblivious privilege by being straight and white. I saw the things you posted, and realized how insane those things that I believed were, and made an effort to be better because I saw (1/2

(2/2) that there was another option, to choose to be caring and unbiased, accepting, and loving. Because of you I saw how unloving I had been, and I made the effort to do better. You changed me, so there’s no way you’d leave no change behind. And you better not slit your throat or anything like that because it’d be a real bummer and I’d be pretty sad about it. You changed my life and deserve to live yours to the fullest.

i’m ??? actually gonna cry ??? this is the sweetest message i have ever gotten. i’m so proud of you, anon, for taking the steps to grow and to learn and to be better, and i am so glad i could be there to lend you a hand. we all internalize bad things. realizing that is the first step, and i’m so so so happy that you took it. i hope you continue to learn, like we all have to, and i hope i can help. and don’t worry—i have no plans to give a pathetic anon the satisfaction.

Do you think The Thrawn Trilogy would have been better as the Sequel Trilogy (or TFA) we have now especially considering Leia? In TTT, Leia is one of the leaders of the New Republic, frees the Noghri from slavery, has a loving family with Han, their children, Luke, Winter and Chewie, fights against Thrawn and does many other great things. Not like in TFA, where she is degraded and has a horrible life. In the end of TTT, she has a happy life and doesn't experience some pseudo-feminist shit.

HI Anon,

It’s been ages since I read the Thrawn Trilogy, although I do remember that everyone comes off well in it and it’s well loved in the EU fandom.

I think the problem is the ages of Mark, Carrie and Harrison at the tme of TFA. If they’d gone with the ST back before the PT, it might have worked but as of TFA, they were too old for the Thrawn Trilogy, so there would have to have been a recast. I’m not sure what the backlash would have been with that - but maybe there wouldn’t have been one. Because the characters would have been honored in a way they aren’t in TFA…

BUT, they could have picked up after Crucible, which is the last book in the “Legends” series with Luke, Han and Leia. They all pretty much retire at the end of the book - Han is in his 70s, Luke and Leia, their 60s, closer to Ford, Hamill and Fisher’s ages at the time of TFA. There’s two children of a good age in it - Jaina Solo and Ben Skywalker - and contrary to the belief of LFL, you didn’t have to know the entire back story of everything and people could have skipped the books…

Because now, what do they make you do? Read the entire back story in books!

I don’t know, Anon, but I’m for anything that gave the OT3 a better ending than they got/are getting!

Thanks!

LEO: You really don’t want to admit it, because it’s a pretty ridiculous thought, but you’re scared of what being fully healed from the heartaches you’ve experienced entails. Because you aren’t sure of who you are when you aren’t hurting and you don’t know how to observe the world with unclouded eyes. It’s okay to be apprehensive of the sides of yourself that you haven’t had many opportunities to become acquainted with. While you may know yourself better than anybody else, that doesn’t mean that you need to be an expert on all things you. It’s okay to still be in the process of meeting yourself and figuring out who you are. You aren’t racing the clock.

VIRGO: You’re finally embracing the things you’ve been talking about doing for so long, but something feels off about it and you don’t know why. Because isn’t this the thing you’ve been working towards? Isn’t this the life you pictured yourself living after pulling yourself out of the gutter and onto the grass? I don’t think it’s right to assume that you’ve made the wrong decision here, but it’s important to remember that not everything you wrap your arms around is going to feel soft and easy to swallow. Sometimes the right decision has to hurt in order for it to be the right decision. Soon you’ll know if there’s anything that needs changing.

LIBRA: I know that trusting your instincts after being led astray so many times is a difficult thing for you to wrap your head around. You’re not the type to forget about the poor decisions you’ve made, or the mistakes you’ve given life to. However, road bumps and wrong turns aside, you are still a person worth listening to. It may seem as though everybody else has a map showing them the route to success and that yours was lost in the mail, but I’m going to let you in on a secret: nobody has a clue, a lot of us are just really good at acting as if we are. You haven’t fallen behind, you’re running with the wolves.

SCORPIO: Everyone assumes that you have a lot of love in your life but, while it’s easy to pinpoint a handful of people that have handled your heart with the utmost care, it’s easier to identify those that haven’t. At the end of the night the latter is what plagues your thoughts and wrings the tears out of your eyes, and admitting to that seems like a sign of weakness. But I want you to know that you aren’t obligated to live up to the expectations that the world holds for you. You’re allowed to make your own goals and visit your own places of interest. And the people that can’t love you for that aren’t people that you need surrounding you, anyways.

SAGITTARIUS: You have a tendency to look for yourself in everybody you meet, stacking your personality traits up like chips in a poker game that you’re destined to lose. The problem here is that in order to do this it involves reducing yourself to the most basic of traits and that isn’t what you are. Just because you can rattle off a list of acquaintances that use humor to detract from a situation in the same way that you do, doesn’t mean that you’re a carbon copy conglomerate of the souls you’ve met and interacted with. You’re unique, and you’re a lot more than simply a list of shared qualities. There are parts of you that cannot be put into words.

CAPRICORN: Has anybody told you lately that they’re proud of you? I know that things have been piling onto your windowsill and that you haven’t had the energy to clean it off yet but you’re still standing tall and you’re still here and that’s something to be happy about. Celebrating the small victories isn’t something that you’re used to doing, but it’s time that you start; it’s time that you open your eyes to all of the things that you do on a daily basis that warrant praise and positive attention. An action doesn’t have to be monumental in order to be important. You do wonderful things each and every day.

AQUARIUS: It’s been difficult to get back into the depths of your passion because there’s a really loud voice in your head saying that it isn’t worth it. A feeling of insecurity welling up in your throat and spilling out of your mouth whenever you open it to speak. Sure, your dream is big. Cynics may have told you that it isn’t worth pursuing. But there’s a reason that you’re chasing what you are, right? It’s because it makes you happy, and it makes you feel whole. And I know that it can be incredibly discouraging to stumble over things you care about, but you just have to keep walking despite all of that. Your goals are worth it.

PISCES: Lately you’ve been haunted by the memories of people that only came into your life to take. The nightmares have become an almost regular guest in your bed, taking the sheets and kicking your shins every night like clockwork. I want you to know that what you need to do in order to gain closure over the unkind past seems terrifying because it is. I also want you to know that you deserve to move on from those that have harmed your growth in the past. It may seem impossible to reach a place of contentment with the situation you’re picturing as you read this, but you’re more than capable of surviving what’s follow you. Allow yourself to thrive.

ARIES: Taking care of yourself still feels foreign, sometimes. Acting adult-like is an oversized jacket that you’re familiar with shrugging off and leaving at home despite the weather that requires its presence. There’s too much societal and social pressure to be fully grown all of the time, in my opinion. Not to say that you shouldn’t be responsible, or that you don’t already take care of the things that you need to, but you’re able to reevaluate what it means to be a successful human being. You aren’t chained to standards or rules or cookie-cutter definitions of “being a grown-up.” Don’t lose touch with the roots that mean so much to you.

TAURUS: Another ending, another heartbreak, another name written through the steam on your shower wall. It isn’t fair that you give so much and still only get apple cores and empty promises handed back to you. I know you’re starting to wonder if it really is a “you-thing,” if the absences you’ve needed to learn to exist around were created by your own hands in ignorance. While most failed connections falter on both sides of a line, that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to be mean to yourself for things that aren’t exclusively your fault. Being kind to yourself is a practice that will benefit you more than you know. It’s okay to give yourself a break.

GEMINI: Happiness is a lover that always sends you postcards but never tells you when they’re coming home. You’ve grown so accustomed to their quick scrawl reading “wish you were here” that you can almost predict each cards’ arrival after every new bout of sadness. It feels like your emotions enjoy mocking you a lot of the time, making you cry over your latest heartache while reminding you of the moments in which you felt nothing but pure and unfiltered joy. I can’t guarantee the continuous presence of bliss in your life, but I will say in confidence that it’ll always come back to you. Even when you think it won’t. Especially then.

CANCER: It’s a lot easier to let the dying embers of a fire fade into darkness than it is to stoke them back to life. I know that you’re tired of crouching next to weak flames, watching them flicker and refuse to glow despite your best efforts, and for good reason. Everybody knows that you deserve better from the world, that isn’t a question. How could you, the big-hearted lover of love, be destined for something as ugly as this? The answer is that you aren’t. Large, beautiful, fulfilling things are on their way, slowly but surely. Don’t forget that it won’t always feel like this. You won’t always view happy moments as a quick reprieve from the norm. Promise.

1. Have a Positive Mental Attitude- Prime yourself at being always comfortable and confident that u can do a lot better at studying. Remember that you are studying things that will prove to be valuable in real life. 

2. Prepare your Work Space- Look for a place in your home or bedroom where u think u can study and maintain concentration in your work. Have materials stocked up and in place before your study. This way, u can finish your work without any interruptions. 

3. Avoid Cramming- study an hour a day even when there’s no homework. Scan your notebooks and do a little advanced reading of your textbooks. You can also research through the internet to learn more about the topics u are covering in school.  I suggest google scholar, it’s like google but for students, it has the citations, and filters results so that only helpful outcomes appear.

4. Do projects with more enthusiasm and creativity- Don’t be afraid to think of new ideas or ways to present your homework or projects. Teachers always give additional points to students who show great effort in their works. SO, don’t be afraid to do something original, do something that hasn’t been done before.

5. Raise Your Hand- Be active and establish a friendly attitude towards your teachers. Offer to help them out in checking some work, filing papers or just carrying their things. Little good things add up in the end for that extra effort grade, and they’ll always remember you as a very helpful student. 

6. Enjoy Reading the Latest News- Find connections or associations with your life as a student, as a child, as a friend, or as a citizen. Certain reports would always ask for u to react so better be ahead with current events which you may be affected with. 

7. Listen to Your Teacher, take a few notes- In my experience, the more i copy and take down notes, the more i get lost in the lecture. It is best to listen first and understand before u jot down any important keywords. Yes, use keywords, simple doodles and arrows to make associations. These will help u remember all concepts mentally. 

8. Keep Notes on Index Cards- I use personally use the smaller oxford ones, they are more portable honestly pretty aesthetic..  

9. Watch TV Wisely- Yep you heard it, TV, when watching TV I sometimes pick up points which may seem relevant in my life. They sometimes even have something to do with what’s happening in class at the moment so, always initiate conversation about the latest shows and issues you have watched. Don’t be afraid to argue and defend your opinions. 

anonymous asked:

What's your take on the world ending for the Greek Gods? Or when they cease to be relevant to mankind, and what happens to them? Would Athena, Aphrodite and Artemis take the streets and march for Pride? Would Demeter be the manager at a zoo?

Time passes. The world changes. Temples fall. People now speak their names as if they are fairytales.

The gods are dead.

Apollo’s chariot lies broken and forgotten in the ruins of a city no one knows the name of anymore. He watches the sun crawl across the sky of its own volition, without him to push it forward.

“Do you miss it?” Artemis asks him, appearing by his side.  They stand at the top of a sparkling glass building, almost the same as ever. She walks among the mortals more than he does, she always has, and She’s dressed like one of them. Tight clothes and half her head shaved, sparkling gems curling up the delicate shell of her ear. She looks like one of the teenagers that fill his concert stadiums.

He thinks of the way his chariot threatened to escape his grasp every morning, the oppressive heat of the sun beating down on him, the burns and the undercurrent of fear that one day he would lose his grip on the reins and plunge the world into darkness.

Apollo leans his head on his sister’s shoulder. The sun rises slower without him, but it rises just the same. “No. Not really.”

~

Hephaestus’s workshop has evolved with the times – from a volcano base to a modern lab, but always a workshop bursting with creation. The cyclopes are still his best assistants.

Aphrodite steps over discarded parts and expertly walks around frantic cyclopes carrying bubbling concoctions. Her dark hair is swept up in a bun and she wears chunky glasses and a blood red pantsuit that almost hides the fact she’s the most beautiful woman to walk the earth. “I have a client, try not to blow up the house. Again.”

“Yes dear,” he says, but doesn’t looks away from his soldering. She hadn’t expected him too. His prosthetics are off and on the floor besides him, and he’s seated on a too-tall chair to compensate for the loss of height.

She reaches out and carefully touches the corner of his eye. Crow’s feet have started to work their way onto his face. They’re getting old. “It’s the couple that’s fighting because he wants kids and she doesn’t want to carry any kids but doesn’t want to say that. It would probably be easier if I just told them to adopt and threw them out the window.”

“Yes dear,” he repeats, sparks flying. A few land on her, but she doesn’t burn. Of course.

She moves her hand up and pushes it through his hair and resists the urge to pull him from his work and abandon her own so they can make out on his worktable. “I love you.”

Aphrodite turns to leave, but Hephaestus grabs her wrist and pulls her back. He holds up a single copper lily, the edges of the petals still glowing with heat it had taken to shape them. He carefully slides the stem into her hair so it sits at the base of her bun. He grazes her bottom lip with his thumb as he pulls his hand back to his side. “Yes dear.”

~

Demeter rages.

She makes imprudent deals to control an earth that no longer falls under her domain, and she enacts her revenge against the mortals in whatever way she can. They have forgotten her, forgotten the earth, and in their ignorance they seek to destroy it.

She shakes the bedrock and splits it open, but still they do not learn, and as the temperature of the earth rises so does her temper.

The sea is not hers to command, her power is of earth and of earth alone, and even now she gave more than could afford to lose to keep her grasp on it. But these mortals do not learn.

Demeter goes to the sea and makes an inadvisable bargain. She goes to the crumbling remains of Olympus and makes an even worse one.

Typhoons and hurricanes whip across the land. If they seek to destroy her, she will simply destroy them first.

~

Hera sits on a pure white couch in an elegant mansion, smiling for the journalist seated across from her.

“What do you think is the most influential decision you ever made?” he asks, “If you could pinpoint the success of your business to one moment, what would it be?”

She tilts her head as the light of the camera flashes. “Why, divorcing my husband, of course.”

“Would that be your advice to young women hoping to be as successful as you?” he asks, “To not get married?”

Hera thinks of thousands of years by Zeus’s side, and how little it got her. She thinks of Hestia’s men, and Artemis’s women, of Hephaestus’s love for Aphrodite, of the way Hades softened the sharpest of Persephone’s edges.

She says, “Do not get married to someone who makes you less than you are. If you are not a better person for being together than apart, then do not be together. It’s as simple as that.”

Simple, but not easy.

Leaving Zeus was the hardest thing she’s ever done.

~

Persephone isn’t forced to spend half the year on the mortal earth anymore. She goes when she pleases, which isn’t often.

Sometimes she’ll sit by Artemis’s side while she brings a new life into the world and holds the warm, wriggly child first. She visits hospitals and makes the flowers bloom out of season, and spends long hours sitting under the sun and feeling it’s warmth touch her face.

Hades left his realm rarely before, and even more rarely now. More people are being born than ever, meaning more people are dying than ever. Their realm is massive, comprising of all the dead of several millennia. Hades and Hecate spend their days as always – desperately trying to expand the realm so that they don’t all have to live on top of each other.

“Have you heard?” she asks one day, seated on his desk and leaning across it so he can’t work on the latest draft for another level of their realm. “The gods are dead.”

He gives up on attempting to tug it out from underneath her. “Are they? That’s odd, none of them are here.”

Persephone doesn’t bother to hide her smile. They haven’t figured it out yet. Maybe they never will. But when death comes for them, as death does for all, it will be to Hades and Persephone’s door they are brought. Hades himself will usher Gaia and Amphitrite into the underworld, when the time comes.

That time is not today.

“Darling, I really do need to work on this,” he ineffectually tugs on the map again.

She pushes him back into the chair, climbing on top of him and pressing their foreheads together. “No, you don’t.”

“No, I don’t,” he agrees, and obligingly moves his head so Persephone can nibble at his neck. He manages a whole thirty seconds before going, “I mean, I really do, Hecate said if I didn’t have a plan by the time she leaves for the mortal realm tomorrow, I’ll either have to wait until she gets back or do it by myself, and I’d really prefer to do neither–”

Persephone kisses him to shut him up, twisting and pushing them through the realm so they land on their bed. “I’ll help you finish it later. Focus on me now.”

Hades doesn’t answer, but he does flip them so he’s above her and reaches below her skirt, so she’ll take that as agreement.

~

Hestia sits around a bonfire, watching a group of teenagers get drunk and dance around the flames. They’ll never be younger than right now, never feel as much love for each other as they do right now.

She is besides an old man who warms his hands from the fire coming from an abandoned trash can.

She lies on a bed as a girl lights two dozen candles around it as a surprise for when her lover gets home.

She watches a young man make dinner for his boyfriend for the first time and burn the chicken on both sides. They eat it together anyway.

She sits on the kitchen counter when a sister takes out a pie from the oven, made special for her little brother’s birthday.

She is there when a father ticks the thermostat up high in freezing dawn of morning so it will be warm by the time his wife and children awaken.

Most people don’t have hearths anymore. But there is warmth, and love, and for Hestia that is enough.

~

As their names fade from existence, as his name is called less and less on the battlefields of mortal men, the more Ares sleeps.

He falls asleep in too tall trees and on park benches. He sleeps in seedy motel rooms and naps in every one of Athena’s libraries. He sleeps curled up on a chair in Aphrodite’s office, and on the floors of a lot of veteran resource centers. As fast as he can tell, that’s the most they help any veteran.

Still, his favorite place to sleep is the underworld.

He goes knocking on Orpheus’s door, who is always willing to play for him. “Hades is here,” Eurydice says, “Would you like to me to go get him?”

He shakes his head, “Persephone is home. I wouldn’t want to intrude.”

Eurydice and Orpheus share the same look of faint disapproval, but neither of the say anything, for which he is grateful.

He lies in the soft grass of the garden Persephone made, and lets Orpheus’s playing lull him to sleep.

Later, he’s woken by strong arms picking him up and holding him against a familiar chest. He doesn’t even have to open his eyes to know who’s holding him. “I can go,” he yawns, his actions at odds with his words as he pulls himself even closer the warmth coming off the king of the underworld.

“No,” Hades says. “Stay.”

Ares lets out a content sigh as Hades presses his lips to his forehead, and he’s not great about touch, about people laying their hands on him and getting in his space. But Hades has always felt safe, felt like home.

He stays.

I screwed up my first year of high school. To some people, it doesn’t look like it. But with a combination of mental illness, not amazing friends and a lack of discipline, I’m glad I barely remember that. But that screw up of a year taught me more than any high school teacher could. Now let me share these things with you. Just a warning, this will most likely be a chaotic rambling of everything in my head.

Mental illness is a legitimate thing do not accuse someone of lying about their mental illness. Don’t do it. You can blame a lot of things on how you were young and stupid, but the question is, are you still being what you call ‘young and stupid’? Now is that a good thing or a bad thing? Learn to laugh at yourself. You do that by putting yourself in weird situations. Walking around the city in a onesie and bright pink vans was a great time. It made me more comfortable in my skin. Own yourself. Simplicity is beautiful. Trust me. You don’t need to get smashed at a party when you’re underage to have fun, trust me on this, I’ve seen way too many incredible people screw up such a great part of their lives by getting smashed at parties and doing drugs when they’re barely 13. Don’t. Beauty isn’t everything, you’ve got a brain. Use it. Such a unique mind shouldn’t go to waste due to societal expectations. You’ve got a heart that’ll melt even the coldest of minds. Find your escape. Books, music, painting, whatever. The world can be overbearing, don’t let it get to you.

Put your all into everything. Don’t half arse anything. If you think you’ve done enough, do it three more times. Check out three more websites. Go through your flashcards three more times. Three is a magical number. What do you enjoy? Okay good, do it often. Who cares if you can’t exactly put it on your resume. Sexuality is a thing, respect other people’s and don’t be ashamed of yours. Do things, but for the right reason. Don’t do a certain co curricular only because it’ll look good on your resume, do it because you enjoy it. Don’t stop doing something because you think other people are better than you. Maybe they are, but that doesn’t mean you can’t improve.

You’re going to change. You’ll never be the same person again. And that’s not a bad thing. But always remember, your mind is a compass pointing you to your final destination. And your final destination is the place where you draw your final breath. And you can ignore it all you want, but you’re going to die at some point. So stop wasting today being someone who you don’t want to be or not growing into the person you want to be, because life is dynamic. To the point where it will end but we have no idea when.

Talking to the Moon: How to Get Somebody to Change Their Mind

We’ve all got one in our lives: that person we love dearly but for some reason, they just don’t seem to hear us when we talk. If you follow astrology, you probably know that Mercury is the planet of communication, but even more so than that it shows how we process information and how our thought process works. Now, perhaps you and the person that comes to mind have compatible Mercury signs, perhaps you do not, or maybe you don’t even know what the person’s Mercury sign is. The point is that when you want to get a message across to somebody, particularly one of an emotional nature i.e. “this really hurts me when you do that”, “I need this to feel happy”, “you’re not hearing my perspective”, or anything similar to those statements you don’t want to talk to the person’s Mercury.

Mercury is our analytical brain and even when it is in a water sign where it tends to be more emotional, it still is an objective, logical process. If you REALLY want to get a message across to somebody when they just don’t seem to “get it”, you talk to their MOON. Now, I typically don’t advise using astrology (or any other metaphysical practice, for that matter) to pretend to be something we’re not, but in cases of communication, sometimes we absolutely MUST get a message across to somebody and the ONLY way to do that is to phrase it in a way that they can understand. Here is a guide on communication styles that are compatible with each Moon sign. I recommend trying more than one, as other factors in the chart, such as aspects to the Moon, can change the results of using each style.

Fire Moons: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Now, I don’t want the fire Moon people out there feeling like I’m bashing them, because we need fire Moons to inspire us and provide us with a sense of directions. It is imperative, however, that when you want a fire Moon to understand something, you have to make it about them. The fire element responds really well to arguments and ideas formatted in a way that it reminds them of how they do something, how they feel, or how they are affected. They tend to be able to empathize best if you can give them a scenario in which they would feel the same way. Using a fire-based way of talking generally requires a bit of rallying where you present your argument in a way that gives them something to do.

Specifically for:

Aries: Give them an action correlated with your argument. If you want them to do something, tell them EXACTLY what it is you want them to do and why they should do it. Don’t expect them to know any of it, lay it out for them. They instinctively crave direction and do well with open doors. Aries Moons are notoriously hard to get to change directions once they’ve picked something and patience can go a long way since they tend to change paths from time to time. Often times, they’ll spontaneously start following your idea as if was theirs if you give them enough time.

Leo: Appeal to their sense of dignity. Leo wants to feel special, and if you explain how seeing the way you do or acting the way you want them to makes them more magnanimous, they will likely oblige you. They instinctively do not want to be like everyone else or average. Challenging a Leo Moon by saying you know better is the biggest mistake you can make, so if you can lead them to making the decision themselves you’ll save yourself a lot of trouble.

Sagittarius: Ask them why they think things should be done a certain way and challenge them to expand their horizons. Sagittarius moons are likely to feel like they’ve figured life out, but they’re always intrigued by the possibility that they haven’t and if you offer them an expanded view they will likely hear you out. You cannot, however, treat this expansion like it your doing. Sagittarius Moon must connect the dots for itself to feel like it can truly follow the path you’ve presented. Using an analogy so they can make the jump themselves is often very helpful.

Earth Moons: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Now, I don’t want the earth Moon people out there feeling like I’m bashing them, because we need earth Moons to ground us and keep the world running. It is imperative, however, that when you want an earth Moon to understand something, you have to make it about what’s best. The earth element responds really well to arguments and ideas formatted in a way shows them, in practical terms, how something is more reasonable or realistic. They tend to be able to empathize best if you can tell them why, with real-world examples and a plan, why your idea is worth hearing. Using an earth-based way of talking generally requires a bit planning and thinking through the steps of what you’re suggesting so that the earth Moon can take you seriously.

Specifically for:

Taurus: appeal to their sense of materialism and be consistently patient. Taurus Moons are notoriously stubborn when they find something that works for them, and getting them to change their mind is not an easy task. Taurus moons, when they care about you or anything else, want you or it to feel valued and if you explain to them that doing what they’re doing will yield no harvest, they will slowly but surely change. The harvest does not have to be literal food, but if you explain to them that they won’t fill up your “love tank” or get what it is they want by staying stubborn they are capable of immense change.

Virgo: appeal to their sense of order. Virgo Moons like things to be neat and tidy so they may instinctively reject information that has to do with anything other than worldly affairs. If you want a Virgo moon to change its mind, be prepared to give them a list, in order, of your arguments. They respond well to formatted, organized arguments (even about things like emotions and zest for life) so providing them with cause and effect arguments works well.

Capricorn: appeal to their sense of discipline. Capricorn moons are often the tough-love type and are naturally ambitious. Getting these ambition-focused people to hear your point often requires that you explain the benefit of what you’re proposing to the overall bottom line. While not all Capricorn Moons go into business, they often act as if they had, so if you haven’t thought ahead about the consequences of what you’re proposing they don’t want to hear it.

Air Moons: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Now, I don’t want the earth Moon people out there feeling like I’m bashing them, because we need air Moons to keep ideas in circulation. It is imperative, however, that when you want an air Moon to understand something, you have to be very careful how you phrase it. The air element, since it tends to understand emotions by observing them rather than feeling them, responds really well to arguments and ideas formatted in a way shows them what something looks like and why it looks that way. They tend to be able to empathize best if you can tell very concisely and using step-by-step logical descriptions of how an idea takes place. Using an air-based way of talking generally requires a lot of clarifying, so if you want to get your point across to an air Moon, be prepared to make your point multiple times in multiple ways until they can understand it on an intellectual level.

Particularly for:

Gemini: appeal to their sense of curiosity. Gemini Moons are constantly updating their vocabulary, so don’t assume that just because you know what you meant that they do. They need you do not only tell them, using words, how you feel but they also require that you use comparisons. Gemini thrives on information, and while they’re likely to point out differences in any analogy that you use, with enough of them they will likely isolate what it is you are trying to get across to them. Be patient, as Gemini Moons can be infuriatingly full of questions, but it’s just because they want to really truly hear exactly what it is you mean.

Libra: appeal to their sense of balance. Now, of course, many people think that Libra is an empathetic sign, and while it is incredible at observing and figuring out how to blend in, its understanding of other people is still air-based rather than water based. Libra is incredibly sweet and of all the Moon placements is the most likely to want to hear you out if you tell them that they’re not hearing what you’re saying, but they may feign understanding to avoid conflict. To avoid this defense mechanism, ask them how they feel about something and to explain it and they’ll return the favor by listening to you.

Aquarius: appeal to their sense of humanity. Aquarius Moons are objective, but they’re objective in the sense that they think everybody should be included, so they don’t want you to feel left out. If your argument explains what you need to feel included or that your argument has a place in the grand scheme of things, Aquarius Moon is much more likely to hear you out. They may not implement your idea in exactly the way you want them to because of this placement’s natural inventiveness, so you may have to give them a few tries to get it right through trial and error. But, make no mistake, they will continue working until you or your idea has a place.

Water Moons: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Now, I don’t want the water Moon people out there feeling like I’m bashing them, because we need earth Moons give our lives meaning and feeling. It is imperative, however, that when you want a water Moon to understand something, you have to make it about how something feels. The water element responds really well to arguments and ideas formatted in a way shows them why something affects somebody on an emotional level. They tend to be able to empathize best if you can tell why something means as much to you as it does. Using a water-based way of talking generally requires a bit of acting and showing some emotion about a topic so they know you’re serious about what you’re saying.

Particularly for:

Cancer: appeal to their sense of nurturing. Cancer moons are natural mommy-types and want to take care of how you feel. They’re generally care less about what you’re saying but more how you’re saying it. Showing tears of frustration will almost inevitably get Cancer Moon people to at least slow down enough to hear you out and they’ll want to do what they can to help you feel better. They may not be able to understand super logical arguments, but if you can express to them importance they can understand that.

Scorpio: appeal to their sense of healing. Scorpio Moons get a reputation for breaking people down, but their intent isn’t to obliterate somebody; it’s to give them space to rebuild. Because of this, Scorpio Moons may test ideas that come their way in ways meant to elicit a frustrated response from the messenger. Changing the mind of a Scorpio Moon is a long-term goal, as if requires that you show endurance and belief in what you propose to them. Once they see that you’re committed and there is nothing left to break down they can change their mind.

Pisces: appeal to their sense of empathy. Pisces Moons can be frustratingly difficult to get an opinion out of, but as a result their also very non-combative. Pisces Moon will generally give in simply by you asking. The trick is you have to consistently remind them because other people can change their minds too. Pisces Moons really don’t want to upset anyone, so showing them that them not changing their mind or behavior is upsetting to you will almost always elicit a response.

Things I want to say to each of the signs

Aries: you’re a much better friend than you let yourself think.

Taurus: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. I want to be you but I also just love that I get to be your friend.

Gemini: I don’t even know what you’re doing with your life.

Cancer: I miss you so much!! You’re awesome. I hope you know that.

Leo: You’re cool but also kind of annoying. I love you anyway though :)

Virgo: you’re too good for this world. How do you not see your potential?

Libra: you have to forgive yourself. Besides, I love you and that’s all that matters.

Scorpio: let go. Whatever it is, take a breath, and get rid of whatever is holding you back.

Sagittarius: get over yourself. Not everything is about you, even if it feels like it is.

Capricorn: be careful of what you say. It sticks with people, so make sure it’s something nice.

Aquarius: you have to figure yourself out before roping anyone else in to your fantasy world.

Pisces: What happened to the person I use to know? People change… but not this much.

21 things I've learned as a 21-year-old

1. Anyone can do literally anything, if only there is passion.

2. Smiling at a stranger, as you pass them by, can truly brighten their day. I should start doing it again. I don’t know why I stopped…

3. It’s okay if it takes you longer than others to realise your dreams, as long as you don’t give up. 

4. Society has decreed you’re a failure without a degree. I call bullshit (see point 1 & 3)

5. Comparing yourself to others will kill your creativity. 

6.No pain lasts forever. Even though it feels like it will.

7. If you’re a kind person, you’re already much better at this thing called ‘life’ than you might think you are. 

8. I’d rather be perceived as clingy or desperate for sending one damn text, than unknowingly have anybody feel as lonely as I have felt. 

9. When you feel like there’s no place for you, you can squeeze through and create your own little, cozy space with all the things that make you happy. It’s not selfish. 

10. Colouring books for adults are great! Who knew colouring in flowers and cute little kittens could be so therapeutic? (I could do without the finger cramps though)

11. The first three months of my gap year have taught me more knowledge, about myself and what I want out of my life, than 15 years of school and college ever have. How sad is that…

12. To be free, is to take risks. 

13. The grass always seems greener on the other side, but it’s not. Trust me, other people are most likely struggling just as hard, just in other areas of their life. 

14. Escaping for a little while every day, in a book, a song, working out, taking a walk, in order not to lose your sanity, is nothing to feel guilty about and it’s not a waste of time. 

15. Don’t tell people about the dreams your chasing, unless you know they’ll be excited for you and encourage you. Most people won’t give a shit or will try to dampen your spirit. 

16. Coffee… actually tastes good. I thought it would never happen, but here I am, right at this moment, sipping a mug of black coffee, enjoying the heck out of it. What is life!

17. Taking life a lot less seriously makes living a lot more pleasurable. 

18. My perfectionist streak causes me to get stuck often. I started to learn to love imperfection. And ever since, all my creative projects have been flourishing.

19. People who walk barefoot…I love you and I wish I had the guts to do the same.

20. I go outside every day. Even when there is no reason to. I just don’t want to miss out on anymore miracles.

21. Some people are negative just for the sake of it. Annoying them with positivity is a form of great entertainment.

Tips on life in general:

If you’re wanting to binge - 

  • Go for a long walk. Reflect on yourself, remind yourself why you started your recovery journey. You want a better life for yourself, right? Aggressive goals require aggressive work ethic.
  • Drink tons of water. Add lemon and a pinch of salt. 
  • Meal prep for the week. This way, you already have bowled up portions of what you want to eat throughout the week. This includes snacks.

If you’re struggling with motivation, inspiration, stress and worries - 

  • Pray to whatever God/Gods you believe in - if you do. Ask for guidance, that you’re guided to a better, stronger path.
  • Write things down. Start with your goals. Then break them down step by step on how and when to achieve them.
  • Invest in a planner. This will bring a sense of productivity in your life and help you keep things in perspective.

And last but not least - 

Remember that when you’re reaching the next level in life, you’re gonna be stressed. You’re gonna be uncomfortable, and you’re gonna worry. You think caterpillars are comfortable in the cocoon of theirs before they become a butterfly? No. They’re stuck in a tight, tiny bubble, but it is only temporary. Remember - this feeling is only temporary. Soon, you will evolve. Like the caterpillar, you will become the most beautiful butterfly there is, and you will spread your wings and fucking fly.

Cute Coupley Things with Peter Parker

Everything about being with him would make you smile. Since you’ve officially gotten together, you haven’t stopped smiling. Neither has he.

  • He gives you that 100 mile stare, where he’s looking at you, but past you at the same time, as if with his eyes he’s saying she’s the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen, and she’s mine.

  • At first you’re both really shy.

  • Like it’s all soft touches, hand brushing and sitting really close to each other. 
cUTEEEEE

  • Than it slowly escalates.

  • The first time you hold hands was at school, in the hallway, Flash picks on him but says something to you. :’Look, Penis Parker has a girlfriend! Bet she’s being paid.” And Peter is about to beat this little shit into the ground, but you lace your fingers through his and he looks at you for a moment before pulling you away.

  • He’d always wait for you at your locker. Or if you made it first he’d slip his arms around your waist and snuggle into your shoulder.

  • Your first date is at the Thai Place. And he internally tells you that he larbs you.

  • You’re constantly playing footsie under the table

  • You’re goal in life is to make him blush, because it’s the most adorable thing on the planet.

  • Anything.

  • You’ll discreetly smack his ass in public.

  •  Kiss him senseless at school.

  • Slip your hand in the back pocket of his jeans

  • “(y/n)! We’re at school!!”

  • “But you like it”

  • “Ya I do.”

  • Slipping your hand under his shirt and running your hands over his abs.
Because Peter might look all cuddly, but he is one fit sonofabitch. 

  • Running your hands through his hair

  • You stealing his shirts and sweaters

  • Him not saying anything because he thinks you look better in his clothes than he does himself. 

  • So, he deliberately gives you his hoodies.

  • “Are you cold? Here take this.
tbh what i actually want in an s/o

  • Going around town to find cute coffee shops as dates

  • “LOOK (Y/n)! ThiS oNE hAS caTs”

  • Whenever he has to keep it PG at school or with Aunt May, he either always has a hand on the small of your back or he grabs one of your hands and kisses your knuckles.

  • Ned and MJ rolling their eyes at your PDA, but honestly happy for you guys, because Peter seems so much happier.


  • Peter being insecure, wondering if he deserved you, because he’s always so busy being SpiderMan even if he tried making time for you.


  • “Because… Because, you could have someone else. Someone who won’t just up and leave, someone who isn’t such a burden, who doesn’t come back bloody and bruised. You don’t—”
  • “Peter, shut up. You’re all I need. You’re perfect and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love you.”


Gross sobbing on my part tbh


  • ALSO that’s the first time you say I love you.
  • Him responding with :” God, I love you so much, (y/n), you have no idea.”
  • “I think I do”
  • Staying at his place after a study night and having a lazy morning. (Aunt May had to work really early *wink* *wink*)
  • Him waking up first and making you breakfast.
  • Pancakes with smiley faces because that’s how Aunt May made them for Peter.


  • Cuddling
  • So much cuddling
  • Sometimes you’re the little spoon
  • Sometimes you’re the big spoon
  • There were days where you’d lay on top of him, your arms around his neck and his arms around your waist


  • Movie nights always ended up with you falling asleep straddling him with you holding him tightly against your body
  • He’d carry you to bed easily.


  • “GODDAMIT PETER PUT A SHIRT ON I CAN”T CONCENTRATE “


  • And so the war begins. Trying to make one another as flustered as possible.

Which ends up with him popping a boner more than once cuz Peter is still a smol bb

  • Peter slipping a hand on your inner thigh.
  • Etc. Etc. Etc.
  • Neck kisses

  • One day you’ll be at one of Liz’s parties and Peter would leave you alone to get some drinks.
  • Some asshole tries to hit on you, but you deflect his bullshit. At some point he still doesn’t give up and starts touching your arms and trying to lay his grotesque hands on your body
  • As you push him back, Peter comes barrelling in. 
  • “WHAT GIVES YOU THE FUCKING RIGHT TO TOUCH MY GIRL LIKE THAT? HUH?”

Types of Personal Spirit Guides

The 3 Main Types of Personal Spirit Guides:

These are the four main types of personal spirit guides which split spirit guides up into 3 categories based on the relationship of when, and how you came in contact with them.

Soul Guide:

A soul guide is a guide that has been your guide in another or multiple incarnations. They probably met up with you in a different life, or in between lives, and are now a more constant part of your soul group, spirit council, or spirit family. These entities are usually very connected to you, because of the past that you share, even if you do not remember it. Soul guides are also a lot more connected to your higher self.

Lifetime Guides:

Lifetime guides are guides that are going to be an entity that sticks with you throughout your entire life. These guides are assigned at birth, and will connect with you during this lifetime. They may choose to leave once the life is done, or may continue on with you depending upon many different factors.

Short-term Guides, and Temporary Guides:

Short-term guides also sometimes referred to as temporary guides are guides that will show up from time to time in your life. These guides usually come into your life in order to teach you a lesson and then will leave once the lesson is learned. They will usually come in the form of animals, or mythical creatures, so that you can receive your message from whatever form they take. They will come to you in times of great need, dire situations, or when you must learn a life lesson, and will last with you and tell that time is complete.

The roles of the guides:

These are the main roles that guides usually fit into. A guide can take up one of these roles, or they can take up multiple of them, or multiple guides can take up the same roles.

Main Spirit Guide, and Primary Spirit Guide:

The main spirit guide also sometimes referred to as the primary spirit guide is the entity that watches over the rest of your soul group, spirit council, or spirit family, and will make sure that they are doing what they are supposed to. these guides will communicate and even manage, or coordinate the rest of your soul group, spirit council, or spirit family in order to keep everything going smoothly, and in line with your higher self’s plan. Main Spirit guides are usually going to be lifetime guides, or soul guides.

Teacher Guides, and Philosopher Guides:

Teacher guides also sometimes referred to as philosopher guides is a guy that teaches you lessons that you need to learn, and will help you figure out things in your personal life. They will try to teach you everything they think you need to know, and will try to do it in the best manner for you, and when you are ready to learn it. These types of guides are very intuitive, intelligent, reasonable, wise, and logical. They will usually focus on specific teachings that they are assigned to teach you by your higher self. These guides will help you problem solve and help you work through certain situations in order to better yourself. Teacher guides can be short-term guides, lifetime guides, or even soul guides.

Helper Guides:

Helper guides are guides that will try to help you with anything that you need to accomplish. They are a lot like good friends that you can always count on for assistance, and will help you achieve a certain desire, or outcome. These guides will usually be called on by the practitioner in order to ask for their help in certain situations, but the guide can always help without being asked. Helper guides can be short-term guides, lifetime guides, or even soul guides.

Healing Guides, and Doctor Guides:

Healing guides sometimes referred to as doctor guides our guides that are skilled in the act of healing. These guides are usually called upon when you need healing, or will help you heal when you are injured. These guides may even be short-term guides that pop in just to heal you when you are injured. A lot of the time these guides also take the form of animals in order to heal you using the energy of that animal. These guides may also help you in healing others, if you ask them to and can be powerful allies of channeling healing energies. Healing guides can be short-term guides, lifetime guides, or even soul guides.

Joy guides, and Child Guides:

Joy guides sometimes referred to as child guides (not to be confused with guides that take the form of children) are guides that try to make you happy when you are feeling down, or need a pick-me-up. They usually will have a great childlike wonder which is why they are referred to sometimes as child guides. A lot of the time these guides are also very energetic, and optimistic allowing them always to make you feel good even in the darkest of times. Joy Guides can be short-term guides, lifetime guides, or even soul guides.

Spirit Guardian, Protector Guides, Gatekeeper Guides, or Guardian Angel:

Spirit guardian also referred to as protector guides, gatekeeper guides, or guardian angel are guides that will watch out for your well-being. These guides will usually defend you from threats, and keep you out of harm’s way. This entity will also protect you when you open yourself up energetically, and will also keep away other entities that you do not want to interact with. They will also protect the connection of entities that you’re communicating with during spiritual communication. These guides may also tell you how to defend yourself, and will keep watch over you. Spirit guardians are usually going to be soul guides, or long-term guides, but can still sometimes be short-term guides in certain situations.

Journey Guide, and Message Bearer Guides:
