a good attitude

this is actually a good attitude to be approaching this interview tbh. namely “well i already have a job, if they turn me down i won’t be unemployed, i can kinda just go in and have fun and relax”

When someone finds out you love one direction then asks how you’re dealing with “the break up” and you know they aren’t worth the whole tortured explanation and your belief system re: The Hiatus™ but you can’t figure out what to say other than “fuck off, becky”:

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
—  Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Put your happiness and wellness first. Make yourself a priority and leave those that bring you down. It’s okay.

Today may be a bad day, but better ones than you could ever imagine are on the horizon :))


Prompt: “I have stabbed people with these heels before and I’m not afraid to do it again, so I would suggest not pissing me off.” (X)
Fandom: Shadowhunters
Pairing: Reader x Raphael Santiago
Word Count: 624

“Why the hell did you drag me along? I told you before Clary, I hate vampires. Especially the ones that are named Raphael Santiago.” You mumbled as you walked behind her and Simon, annoyed because you had to go to the vampires lair with her and her vampire best friend. Out of all the things you had encountered, vampires were the ones you hated the most. Their fast speed made them unpredictable, even for a skilled Shadowhunter like yourself. But besides that, vampires were always snarky and annoying, something you hated about them the most.

Out of the vampires you had encountered, Raphael Santiago was the worst. Sure, for a dead guy he was extremely good-looking. Unfortunately, his attitude wasn’t. He was always dripping with sarcasm which annoyed you the most, especially since you lived with a bunch of Shadowhunters who were sarcastic as hell.

“He isn’t that bad.” Simon answered as you rolled your eyes. Of course Simon would protect him. The two vampires had a sibling bond which you found quite odd. How could someone have that kind of a bond with Raphael Santiago out of all people? Or in this case, out of all vampires.

“Have you met this guy?” You asked as the three of you walked over to the front door of the hotel they were residing in. Clary and Simon stopped, debating over whether they should knock or just walk in. Rolling your eyes you began to kick down the door when it flew open, making you almost fall into the arms of the one vampire you hated: Raphael Santiago. Luckily, you managed to gain your balance as you stood extremely close to him before clearing your throat and taking a step back.

“Were you just planning on kicking down my front door?”

“Why exactly would I want to work together with a bunch of werewolves and Shadowhunters? Especially with the ones who wanted to kick down my front door.” He said, looking straight at you with a smirk on his face. You rolled your eyes as you turned to him, crossing your arms.

“Are we still talking about this? We said we’re sorry.” You mumbled before Simon raised his finger, pointing at himself.

“Actually, I said it. You just nodded.” He added as you let out a sigh.

“Which means that I agreed. Can we move past this now, please?” You remarked as you glanced at Clary who was beginning to grow impatient.

“Look, we’re here for the same reason: we all want the cup. I mean, we are all pretty screwed if Valentine finds it first.” She said as you nodded, looking over to Raphael as you waited for his answer.

“No.” He stated confidently. You raised your eyebrow as you glanced at Clary and Simon, seeing them just as confused as you were.

“What do you mean ‘no’?” You asked. He simply sighed as he stood up from the couch he was sitting on.

“I mean no. If you want someone to help you, ask the dogs or the fairies.” He simply said as he passed the three of you, wanting to leave the room.

You moved in front of him, blocking his way out of the room. He stopped, looking at you with an annoyed expression.

“Move.” Raphael simply said as you let out of a chuckle, taking a step closer to him as you stared deeply into his eyes.

“Listen closely, bloodsucker. I have stabbed people with these heels before and I’m not afraid to do it again, so I would suggest not pissing me off.” For a moment Raphael seemed stunned before letting out a chuckle and turning himself towards Clary and Simon.

“Did she just really threaten me with her heels?”

I mean I don’t hate my art. I’m proud of where I’ve gotten with it!

I just look at it and I’m like… I could be doing better than this. I need to do more with backgrounds. I need to change up the poses and get more expressive. I need to have more control over my drawing process. I need to do color and value studies. I need to actually think about what I’m trying to make.

A few years ago I was really pushing myself to learn digital painting, trying new techniques, checking for consistency, drawing more landscapes and settings… I guess I quit doing that because I have less time to draw now. Now I play it safe with routine doodles that I know will come out okay in an hour or so.

I just look at the kinds of things my idols do, and what’s most frustrating is knowing that if I worked harder I could be doing those things too.

We don't have a "queen" in figure skating right now

Some people really have the nerve to call Evgenia Medvedeva  a “queen”. It’s inappropriate and a sign that people don’t take figure skating seriously anymore.

Who is the “queen” of sport: Someone who has a long, successful career- means many years of competing and winning medals and especially gold medals. Someone with good attitude, someone who is gracious, who acknowledge his rivals strengths, who understand his sport, who admits his own flaws, who is helping to make the sport better, someone who is humble.

But let us talk about Medvedeva. Last year was her first senior year and the ladies field in general was pretty weak, that’s why the russian federation had to push her- they needed a new “star”. Tuktamysheva, Sotnikova, Lipnitskaya, they are not in form, Pogorilaya was still the “queen of falls”, Radionova is inconsistent and sloppy (the judges are pretty clear about it since her first senior appearance), everyone else was still a junior. But Russia just got a new senior girl, the new junior champion (let’s be real, Wakaba Higuchi was robbed) the 16 years old Evgenia Medvedeva.

And figure skating suddenly changed.

Do you remember the times, when ladies figure skating was still ladies figure skating? Strong, elegant ladies with beautiful spins, strong jumps, choreography, emotions? That’s all gone now.

Podium European championships 2008:

Podium European championships 2011:

Podium World championships 2013:

What we have  now are underweight, sloppy, cheating russian children, yes, children, and inflated scores. Medvedeva is one of them. She is not a woman yet, she still has the body of a child, which helps her to jump, jump, jump, but that’s it. There are no emotions,  they told her where in the program she should open her mouth or make a grimace, she don’t understand the music she is skating to, there is no elegance. The same music every season, same movements, ridiculous pantomime, "tano jumps" all over the place. 

She is a robot.

Something changed: podium European championships 2014

Podium GPF 2015:

European championships 2016:

Medvedeva's  “world records” are meaningless, the scoring rules change every few years and the judges do whatever they want.

Let us talk about her attitude. Her 3-3-3 attempt (was under rotated anyway) at nationals and her “intentional zayaking"  at European championships 2017 are a sign of arrogance. Her message is ”look what i can,  i’m better than you“.

Her reaction after National championships and her 3-3-3 attempt:

The success has gone to her head. Her reaction in the k&c at Trophee de France 2016, when she saw her scores and it wasn’t a new world record, not even a SB or PB, speaks for itself. We saw her attitude at Rostelecom cup 2016, where she was in the audience and laughed at Radionova’s SP performance.

Trophee de France 2016:

Some people claim she has "nerves of steel” and is a “good competitor”. Well, she knows the judges will give her the scores she needs to win, no matter how her performance is going to be, that’s why she is not worried. She is too arrogant to worry.

And you say she is a “queen”? A queen of what?

But you know what they say: Who flies high, falls low

If she is still  on the podium in the next 10 years and is not skating like a junior, then we can call her a “queen”.

  • Okay but let’s be honest, dating Kim Taehyung is going to be the most amazing thing in the world. This man, along with his good looks and sexy attitude, is also a gentleman, and a complete sweetheart when it comes to the ones that he loves. 
  • When you met him for the first time, he was put in a state of paralysis, he couldn’t comprehend the words to describe how beautiful you were. 
  • Finally, when he gets the courage to ask you out, he feels like the luckiest man in the world, because really, how did he score with someone as amazing as you are?
  • Dating him is going to be pretty much perfect
  • He’s always going to be there for you, and will always support you with whatever you’re going through
  • Being an idol, he knows what it’s like to be put under immense stress, so he makes sure you’re never feeling like that. 
  • He loves taking photos with you
  • Especially cute pictures in booths on the street where he can add visual effects and make you both look adorable
  • He uses them as his lock screen
  • Especially when he’s away on tour, because he likes to be reassured by your face even when you can’t be there in person. 
  • He’s going to love spontaneous dates
  • He’s not really the kind of guy that likes big, fancy restaurants and dressing up all the time, he prefers smaller dates, like picnic in the park, or a trip to the beach. 
  • But above all, he just loves having fun with you.
  • He would be all about having couple things - jewelry, clothes…
  • “Are you serious, you want me to go to the party as the Harley Quinn to your Joker?”
  • “Yes {y/n}, I do. Because you’d look damn cute. Whaddya say puddin’?”
  • Even though he gets a lot more romantic attention than you from fans, he’s always possessive of you. 
  • Not too possessive, like, he’s not clingy or jealous
  • But he doesn’t appreciate people flirting with you, or even cat calling in the street.
  • Of course, ans an idol, he has a reputation to uphold, and he is forbidden to fight or cause any negative attention, so when he does get pissed off, he’ll just give them that look that says ‘back off’
  • He’s also quite the touchy feely type
  • He’s constantly holding your hand, got your hand on your leg, or wrapping his arm over you shoulders 
  • And it’s not always as innocent as it appears to be

  • Okay so usually he’s very careful in public when it comes to his sexual life. He doesn’t like risking doing anything where anyone could face a camera, but in the security of your own home…
  • God help your soon not to be innocent soul
  • Usually, he’s going to be slow and passionate, taking in every single sound, and playing out ever move with pleasure for the both of you during sex
  • But just wait for when he’s all fired up
  • Don’t expect to be able to walk properly for at least three days
  • Small shots of pleasure 
  • Like gunshots
  • But after all, he is mainly all about the love and passion
  • Though he isn’t going to deny if you ask him to dominate you
  • But when he’s not being a nasty little bias wrecker that’s sexy af
  • He’s going to be sweet af
  • Cuddling with you under the covers and snuggling up especially on those cold nights when he doesn’t want you to be cold.
  • Holding you close
  • Pressing kisses to your forehead and telling you he loves you before you finally fall asleep in his arms.
