a kind word everyday

What is Japanese Onomatopoeia ?

Despite the hard to spell word, it’s a term for a type of a very simple word category everyone knew since we were little.

Onomatopoeia is also called sound symbolism. Remember when you’re little and learning words such as meow~, moo~ or woof! ? Or when you see “Pow!” or “Gulp gulp~” in comic books? Yep, that’s it~ It is a term for words that imitate sounds.

In English, these kinds of words have a very childish property and it’s very rare for adults to use them in everyday language. But in Japanese, these kinds of words are integrated with their everyday language. That is why you need to learn more about it if you haven’t. In case you haven’t noticed, you will find a lot of these sound effects too in manga (Japanese comic).

Image 1: ヒリヒリ (throb throb)
Image 2: ドドドド (ratatatataa!! *sound of machine gun* in this case is the rumbling sound of the very fast step.

But more than just sound effects, Japanese people really incorporate these words in everyday sentence. They tend to describe something with sounds. The rolling stones, (literally) it’s goro goro. That sparkly diamond? It looks kira kira. Cutting a thick log with saw? It sounds like zaku zaku. Someone suddenly died in a snap? It’s pokkuri!

Sound symbolism is one of the most important part of Japanese language. A lot of book including the JLPT material doesn’t cover descriptions and usage of onomatopeia. But you will find a lot of them in real world. Yes, A LOT!

Therefore you will need another reference to help you with this material. One recommended book is the Onomato Pera Pera . It’s a book that cover a lot of different type of onomatopoeia and the most interesting part is that we could see the word in action on a comic strip! Definitely good to understand the context of each words!

Happy learning! 。゚✶ฺ.ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ.✶゚ฺ。

Cn & lb's weapons have Internet access & untraceable IPs so when they're bored on patrol they livesteam & do random shit on youtube & bc of that everyone sees them as people not just heroes & sometimes alya gets in on it & they stream to the ladyblog

have you guys ever seen that shipping video that thomas sanders and jon cozart did? this is p much based off that xD

Link to Archive of Our Own: [AO3]

Summary: “We’ve noticed something interesting going on. An alarming number of people seem to ship Ladybug and I.”“

Yeah, it’s tricky stuff shipping real life people. People expect us to be romantically compatible. But are we?”

An exclusive Ladyblog Livestream Event with Ladybug and Chat Noir where they decide once and for all whether Ladynoir is a compatible (and acceptable) ship. Remember to like comment and subscribe!

“Okay, guys. Act natural, and remember this is just for fun. You guys cool with doing your own intro and everything?”

Ladybug scoffed. “Are you kidding? You’re giving him control of an entire video, he’s totally fine.”

“You can literally make fun of me until the end of time, I don’t care. Do you know how much I’ve fantasized about doing a YouTube tag?” Chat Noir bounced in his seat a little bit and cracked his knuckles. “I am beyond ready.”

Ladybug jutted a thumb at him and smirked at Alya. “See? I think we’ll be good.”

Alya snorted and finished setting up her phone on the little tripod mount she bought specifically for the occasion. Her hands were shaking a little bit because she was still finding it hard to believe that Ladybug and Chat Noir were actually sitting in her living room, not even a few feet away from her. 

It had always been her dream to do a Livestream to the Ladyblog that wasn’t just focusing on the superheroics. Yes it was always exciting to get details on fights, on their powers, on what goes through their heads in the middle of battles, but at the end of the day they were still the same age as Alya. She wanted to have the chance to just do something silly with them. News reporters very rarely treated them like the teenagers they were, and Alya was sure that her followers would get a kick out of them doing something humorous on camera. She’d made a whole blog post about it one night when she was sleep deprived and not thinking before she typed. 

But two days later, when she caught them right after another akuma fight, Ladybug pointed her out of the crowd and mentioned that they both saw the post she’d made. “Feel free to ring us up when you have an idea for a video,” she grinned.

It was almost too good to be true, but Alya wasn’t going to let go of an opportunity like this. The amount of views and followers she’d get after this would be astronomical. She was practically vibrating. “Alright, you crazy kids, I’m gonna read off the questions for you once you start. Whenever you’re ready.”

it’s like he’s your best friend.
you miss him when he’s gone,
but when he’s there,
the rain stops;
he turns thunder into rainbows.

it hits you when you don’t expect.
driving in the car,
listening about his day,
hearing his breathing as he falls asleep.
you fall more in love with him everyday,
through kind words and bear hugs.
and suddenly,
nothing else seems to matter.
—  j.e.b. ((somehow he is everything.))

I’m so thankful to have found Mark. He’s truly amazing. I watch his videos everyday. Truly inspirational. His kinds words. He’s too kind and generous. He’s so caring. He truly loves us. We truly love him. We’ll never stop loving you @markiplier
You’re the reason we’re happy. You’re the reason for our smiles

Sara was a good girl- you know the kind. Calls her parents everyday, never an unkind word. She was smart, and pretty too which is why you’re shocked when she tells you she hasn’t been on a single date. It isn’t that she rejected them all either, nobody had ever asked. One day, you find out why.

What does love mean

Just a start to a poem I started writing tonight about love, the queen of all poetry topics.

What does “love” mean?
Of course, it’s an action word
An everyday kind of verb
It’s a feeling, sometimes fleeting
It grows and it matures.

But what does it mean?
To hold and to touch?
To listen, or talk too much?
Does it feel the same to you as it does to me?

I don’t know.

But I believe this is what love really means:
Love is to cherish.
Love is to protect.
We cherish what we know.
We protect what we have pride in.
We cherish all that’s precious.

Don't hate yourself, love yourself & love your life, no one deserve so be down

thank you for this! not sure when you sent this or what post you are referring to, but still, I thank you for your kind words. I’m beginning to love myself and my life more everyday. I’m slowly crawling out of this dark place and couldn’t be more proud of myself.

Headcanon for the characters working at retail.

1. Max:

We all know how expensive higher education is in USA. So, it’s likely that Max would be neck deep in student debt, and Max being Max wouldn’t want to take money from his mom to fund his education. Max would be the kind of guy who’d be super accommodating to his customers - the one who’d drop a kind word to every customer and his employers and colleagues everyday, because that’s just who he is. He loves showing the products off. He’s the patient kind, but is likely to swoop in to rescue any of his colleagues if they’re getting bullied by a particularly obnoxious customer. He wouldn’t be rude to them at all, but he’d definitely have his colleague’s back.

2. Hiromi

I can see her working in retail for some time to fund her education. However, unlike Max, I think she can be slightly passive aggressive if her customers start to pile their bullshit on her. Hiromi, however, is very thorough with whatever she does. She’s a perfectionist and is strictly devoted to working without complaints during work hours. And she is super punctual.

3. Raul and Julia

These two have grown up around circus troupes, but sometimes both of them work in retail for the extra money. They work in retail the way they function in normal life. Raul is the guy who enthusiastically promotes stuff before new customers, but is likely to quietly take crap from his customers. Julia, however, actually gives her customers a piece of her mind. It’s got her into trouble a few times and Raul has often had to step in, but Julia has zero tolerance for crap.

4. Rei

He’d be sweet to new customers but for him mostly it’s a little mechanical. He does his work diligently but a little unenthusiastically  because he’d probably be working in retail temporarily while waiting for an opening at a restaurant, maybe? Rei would totally want to be a chef.

That’s all for now xD Thanks ^^

Sakamaki: one and only. Requested by Anon.

The was the day they were before you on one knee the small box held out in front of them. Their words still lingering in the air.
You could barely believe what you heard of say, but the moment was here, a moment you never though would come to pass.
He was asking for your hand in marriage.

“Can you be my light forever more? I always want you by my side. As my queen.” Shuu looked you in the eyes. And you realized all of this was strange from the beginning.
The fact that he made dinner, he cleared his brothers out of the house and set up the table himself. It was all leading up to this and tears started to form in your eyes.
“Say yes and spend the rest of forever with me because there isn’t someone else I rather be with in this whole world. I need you.”

He had taken you away to Paris, and gotten a huge and overly lush apartment for you. He bought a place just for you. He let you pick it out and everything.
Everyday you have been showered with gifts and kind words as Reiji himself waited on you. While by night you were bathed in soft kisses.
“Love, I never though I would love someone. I never though someone could meet my level of perfection. But you have gone beyond it. Your are more than I could have every hope and dreamed. There should be more I could be able to say but no words can do justice to how I feel for you. Only my actions.”
With that Reiji sunk down into one knee and pulled out a ring.
“Marry me?”

How was he supposed to do this, he was passing back and forth. He needed to get something ready for you. It needed to be big and beautiful to really sweep you off your feet but he couldn’t think of anything and was scared to screw it up.
“Ayato what’s wrong?” You asked concerned and he let it slip.
“I was wanting you to marry me but I don’t knew how to ask?” He froze as soon as he spoke and cursed.
“Heh, you ask your cute dorky way.” You chuckled and blushed as your heart hammered, “I’m already yours.”

“When’s The Wedding?”

Hey guys! I know it’s been so long since I’ve posted an imagine and I’m so incredibly sorry! I’ve been on like a 3 month hiatus and I’m terribly sorry. I’ve been so overwhelmed with school and extracurricular activities that I haven’t gotten the time to just sit down and type. I assure you I am back and will never leave this blog. I love it way too much to abandon it.

Also, we have reached 1,000 followers! I can not thank you all enough for reblogging my posts and liking my writing. This is absolutely insane! I can not believe that we have come this far being that I only started this blog in June and now we here are at 1,000. You guys have no idea how much this means to me and thank you for all of your support and your kind words. I get messages from you guys everyday saying how much you like my work and it really helps me as a writer and as a person and I would like to thank each and every one of you because without you I would not be where I am right now. I love all of you and you guys are my friends and don’t worry, SourStilinski is here to stay.

In celebration of hitting 1,000 followers, I have decided to write and post a new imagine every day for the entire month of January to celebrate the new year so that means 30 NEW IMAGINES. So please send in your requests so I have new material to work with. Thanks again for all of your love and support. I could not have made it this far without you. 

You’re not exactly sure how it all happened. You had met Brett at a lacrosse game and punched him in the face for harassing your best friend, Liam. But then you felt bad about it and helped him fix it up and since then you two had become inseparable. You did everything together: you went to the movies, you studied together, had sleepovers and were always together. Of course, you didn’t see Brett as anything other than your best friend but the pack thought differently. They were always teasing the two of you, asking when you were going to finally seal the deal and get together. Sure, you loved Brett but not in that way. More like a best friend or brother/sister relationship and that’s all he saw you as or so you thought. Lately the pack was beginning to tell you how blind you were as to how Brett was so in love with you. But now, listening to them, you were beginning to see it.
