Self Care

It’s Mental Health Month. May 1st. The beginning of it. I just want to post some tips on what I find useful when I feel anxious, depressed or lonely. Some tips on how to care for yourself mixed in here too. I know what it’s like to feel like nothing is going to work out and you feel like there is no point anymore. I still get sad from time to time but here is what I try to do to lower those horrible feelings. 


  1. Music 
    When I feel down I put on my chill playlist and listen to the songs. Not just recognize that the song is playing. I listen to every word, every beat, every instrument that makes a sound. I listen so hard that I forget everything else around me and forget everything that is going on in my head for a while. This actually really helps and especially if it’s a slow song, something that matches my mood. 
  2. Reading 
    Reading is one of my favourite things to do. I’m in love with words. And getting deep into one of my favourite books helps me forget for a while. Grab something to drink and maybe a snack, find a quiet and comfy place to relax and let yourself fall into a book. 
  3. Eat 
    When I feel depressed my appetite can go away pretty quickly. But if you don’t eat, you’ll feel even more tired and low. And that’s not good. So eat. Not junk food. Maybe a treat every now and again but make sure to eat healthy too. Fruit or vegetables. Maybe make some type of sandwhich or maybe eat a bowl of porridge. Whatever you want to make. But remember, not always junk food. And drink lot’s and lot’s of water. 
  4. Shower or bath 
    If you feel all ugh, and ew take a long warm shower or a bath full of bubbles. Taking a shower or bath might help you feel more relaxed and feel more taken care of. And keeping yourself fresh and clean will help help boost your system. 
  5. Fresh air 
    When I’m down, I get lazy. So the whole ‘take a long walk’ thing doesn’t go with me. What I like to do instead is open a window and stand there or take a chair and sit near there. I’m getting fresh air into my lungs which is good and I don’t need to get up and go outside to do it. Now getting exercise is a good thing to do too because it’ll boost your system also. But when you really can’t get up and walk far, just go to a window and read or listen to music.
  6. Cry 
    Yes crying is on this list. When you really need to let those tears out, just do it. If you’re in a place you feel comfortable enough to do it. Let it all out, for however long you need to. Crying doesn’t make you weak or a loser or whatever you think it makes you. It helps you. Instead of holding all those feelings in, you can let them out by crying. So just do it because a cry every now and again, will make you feel a little better. Hopefully. 
  7. Decorate and change it up
    This may be an odd one but it helps me. When I’m sad I’ll look up some quotes that I really like, write them on some paper and decorate the paper and stick it on my wall. Or sometimes I sift things around. If I think something in my room would look better in a different position then I’ll move it. I’ll maybe take some things down and hang something new up instead. Tidy my room too if it needs it. This helps because I’m focusing on other things. Where will this go? Does this look good on this wall? Things like that. Try it and see. 
  8.  Breathe 
    When I feel like I can’t breathe, I remember that I just need to take a minute. Look at my surroundings. What’s the colour of the walls? Breathe. What’s in the room? Breathe. What’s the weather like outside? Breathe. What’s my favourite food? Breathe. Do I have any plans this week? Breathe. Ask yourself some questions. Answer them and breathe. Breathe, breathe and breathe. Don’t let you make yourself small. Think bigger than what that stupid annoying voice in your head is telling you. Breathe. Because you’re worth it.

I hope these tips helped. I really do. And please, please REMEMBER… you are beautiful. You are so amazing and this world needs you in it. Maybe you feel like no one cares. But I guarantee you there is somebody out there who thinks the world of you. You are somebody’s moon. You’re that person who lights up the darkness for them. Don’t let your light go out. Stay strong and remember to love yourself and take care of yourself. You guys are more than welcome to ask me something if you need any advice or have any questions. The door is open and you are welcome.

*YOOSUNG:

               -He’s always making you food and snacks in cute little shapes (especially hearts)

               -When the two of you play LOLOL he’s always giving you the best loot and diving in front of your character to make sure you don’t die

               -Always joining new clubs that either you’re in, or they cover a topic you’re interested in

               -That way, he can spend more time with you and enjoy some of the same things!

               -Not to mention it he actually really enjoys it all and learns something new about you every time

               -He’s even managed to hug you close for long periods of time without turning red or stuttering!

               -But you still! Don’t! See it!

               -You always think he’s just being really nice and a great friend! Sure you secretly like him but you don’t want to ruin the friendship if he doesn’t like you back!

               -Saeyoung’s made it his personal mission to get the two of you together because Yoosung just won’t take initiative and you’re just oblivious as hell

*ZEN:

               -He’s always hanging off of you, how are you not even suspicious?

               -Always has an arm around you, hand on your shoulder, even on your knee when the two of you are sitting

               -For fucks sake MC, he kisses your cheek and holds your hand when the two of you walk anywhere are you DENSE??

               -Always bringing you flowers, chocolates, you name it

               -HE EVEN MAKES UP SONGS TO SING TO YOU

               -He’s so dramatic about everything. Every time you don’t react to his romantic gesture, he’s practically throwing himself to the floor in a sobbing fit

               -He’s even held you by the shoulders, looked you in the eyes, and told you how much he really likes you

               -You just responded with a tilt of your head, innocently asking, “Like…. you like-like me?”

               - hoW HAVE YOU NOT NOTICED BY NOW?????

               -EVEN AFTER THAT, YOU’RE STILL OBLIVIOUS. MC, why. Just, why. He loves you but wOW

*JAEHEE:

               -She’s not exactly surprised that you don’t realize her feelings

               -More subtle with her emotions than the rest of them

               - even jumin is more open about his feelings for you, who would have guessed

               -She’s always inviting you to attend new cafes, or to show you her favourite ones!

               -Also makes you a lot of coffee/tea and cakes!

               -The two of you spend a lot of time discussing books the two of you have read, and theorize about those that abruptly ended

               -Always looking you straight in the eyes, smiling, and will constantly turn a light shade of red

               -But you don’t get it?? Is she getting a fever? Is it even hot enough in here to make her red like that? Is she alright?

               -You’re always putting your hands on her cheeks, trying to see if she’s ill and it just makes her blush 10x more

               -Dammit MC she’s gonna pass out at this rate, get your hands off of her, just notice that she likes you so the two of you can cuddle and she can get over turning as red as she does!

*JUMIN:

               -You’d think it’d be really obvious

               -I mean the man has next to no emotions but when you come around he’s practically a puddle on the floor- how in the world don’t you notice?

               -Always making sure you’re comfortable with anything the two of you do

               -If he invites you to lunch and you don’t like the restaurant, he’ll cancel his reservations and find a new place immediately

               -AND HE DOES EVERYTHING HIMSELF. Not once does he ask Jaehee or another employee of his to set up plans or grab something for you

               -Listens to your opinion more than anyone else’s. He’ll take it to heart and do whatever you suggested (that is if it isn’t drastic)

               -HE LETS YOU PICK UP ELIZABETH? CUDDLE WITH HER? GIVE HER KISSES? DOESN’T THAT TELL YOU HOW HE FEELS ABOUT YOU??

               -The dude tried to move you into his house almost immediately, seriously MC how can you not tell

               -Completely showers you in gifts all the time. If you aren’t there to physically receive them, he’s telling you what he got you and sends you pictures

               -He thinks it’s absolutely adorable that you have no idea, but at the same time it lowkey drives him crazy because he juST WANTS TO KISS YOU, MC. PLEASE. JUST, P L E A S E

 

*SAEYOUNG:

               -This lil brat tries to hide that he’s completely in love with you until he just can’t take it anymore

               -Come on he’s built you Robo-cat, gone over personally to protect you, and a lot more, what do you waNT FROM HIM

               -Sends you memes in the middle of the night because he thinks you’ll find them funny

               -Calls you at night just to talk until he can hear you fall asleep on the other end of the phone

               -He’s also buying you a lot of little things because he thought of you when he saw it, and couldn’t bring himself to just leave it

               -You’re the only one he’ll let drive his babies. HIS. BABIES. MC, COME ON

               -Always looking at you like a love-sick puppy. Whenever you do something completely adorable he gets as red as his hair

               -He’ll lightly brush his hand against yours when the two of you are walking close together, and watch to see if he can actually grab your hand

               -Gives you the Flynn Rider smoulder more times than you can count but all you do is giggle because it’s your favourite movie. Your giggle is like heaven but MC whY CAN’T YOU SEE HE LIKES YOU

               -HE EVEN SINGS THE LITTLE MERMAID SONG “KISS THE GIRL”(or he changes the lyrics to boy, depending) TO GET THE POINT ACROSS BUT ALL YOU DO IS JUMP IN ON HIS MUSICAL NUMBER. One day MC, one day.

*V:

               -He’s gentle with everyone, but you??

               -Well, he’s gentle but he plays around a LOT more

               -Playfully pushes you, pinches your cheeks, he even does gross shit like lick your cheek okay but i do the same

               -Leans close to you all the time. When the two of you talk, he’s leaning into you, staring into your eyes

               -Y'all even spend the night at each other’s houses watching movies or just talking about life

               -How the hell can you not tell that this giraffe loves you??

               -Always taking beautiful photos of you! Well…almost always

               -He’s always holding your hand because he doesn’t want to lose you in a crowd. Or that’s what you think. In reality he just wants to hold your hand; MC please he’s so cute just kiss him already

*SAERAN:

               -He just plain sucks at sharing emotions

               -But he thought he was pretty obvious?

               -Like there are times that you’re the only one he’ll even acknowledge? That’s pretty self-explanatory there MC

               -He takes you out for ice cream all the time, walks around town, whatever you want. He hates people, he doesn’t willingly go out for that. Unless you want to

               -Always invites you over to just hang out and play some games, watch some movies, or sometimes just to nap

               -Even asks you to teach him how to cook/bake, so he can spend a lot more time with you!

               -Sometimes you give him this dazzling smile that just makes his heart flutter and he can’t even look at you

               -You also like to hug him and he practically passes out every time. It scares you a little bit because you can’t figure out why?? Is he okay??? Are you dead??

               -But he steps out of his comfort zone and hugs you back?? You’re so happy and you absolutely love it! You think that maybe he’s finally becoming more social! You have no idea that he only hugs you because??? It’s you

               -Please just admit you like this man so he can get comfortable MC, he’s too awkward to ask you out himself

Skittles and Soulmates (Reddie)

I got a request on my other blog that was supposed to go here, but I accidently posted a Reddie request advertisement on there yesterday, Whoops. Anyway, here’s the oneshot.

Request: Hi! I was wondering if you could do a Reddie soulmate AU! One where you are unable to lie to your soulmate, but that doesn’t start until you know who your soulmate is. So like maybe they also get matching tattoos that don’t appear until the two soulmates share a significant experience (like facing pennywise). Then when the tattoos appear that is when they are unable to lie to each other? Idk if that males since and you can tweak it if you need to. Thank you!!

Pairing: Reddie

Warnings: Swearing

  • Sherlock & Molly | Losing    youtube link (to like and/or comment and/or add to playlists)

dedicated to @miabicicletta & @nyah86. I admire you both so very much. This is my way of thanking you for the Sherlolly delights you always provide us with :D

Please, if you like it, take the time to like and/or comment on the Youtube Page of the video. You would make my day. This is what my little editor’s heart feeds on. Give it love. It gives love back :D 

But back to the matter at hand.

I’m a wreck. TFP killed me with feels. I AM NOW DEADED.

The video is simplistic. This is THE SCENE (subtly shortened) and interspersed with significant moments to explain how it would always come to this. I am not very clear, am I? Ugh. This is why I edit. It’s easier than writing.

Basically, I tried to illustrate that, yes, obviously, Molly always has been the outrageously overlooked pressure point that would ultimately turn Sherlock into an agonising mess. I kind of knew there would be something of that nature coming our way but, DAMN. I didn’t think the writers would be so in sync with my thoughts on the matter. Why am I even surprised? They wrote the whole thing after all. Come on, Mathilde.

The sound is decent but I would advise headphones and HD to maximise the experience. I hope you will enjoy it. 

Took me ages to finish it, but actually didn’t take any time at all. I knew where I wanted to go but Premiere turned out to be EXTREMELY uncooperative. Every time I would add something on the timeline or make a change, it would take one or two minutes to load so I could have a look. ===> #nightmare. This is the last time I’m using 1080p files. Good quality, yes. But GOD at what cost. If anyone has any advice on the matter, please, feel free to get in touch. I’m presumably not doing it right :D

-

UPDATE: Thanks to @theleftpill, the problem is officially resolved. Thank you so very very much. You saved my sanity.

Hurray for Craig Armstrong. One of my favourite film score composers. I’ve used two of his creations. One from Moulin Rouge! and the other from The Great Gatsby. Both beautiful. Moulin Rouge! is my favourite film, as a matter of fact. An actual slap in the face when I was twelve. And I cry at the end. Every time. Not kidding.

Music:

Death Scene - Moulin Rouge!
Gatsby’s Death and Portico - The Great Gatsby

Oh, dear. The music from the two death scenes of each movie. I am a cheerful person aren’t I?

Disclaimers: I don’t own the songs or the clips used in this video. This is purely a work of fiction, no profit gained.

frog-dood-les  asked:

I saw your picture with Anthony Rosenthal and my heart soared asdfgh !!! I'm guessing you're a fan of falsettos !! What's your favourite song/scene/character?

I actually…. that’s one I don’t know much about lol. I just know that it’s a three-part musical, and it’s nice and gay lol

My Favourite
  • Me: *listens to tøp* this band is great. All their songs have a different sound to them. Every one of them is great. This is my favourite band.
  • Me: *listens to fob* nononono THIS right here is my favourite band. This is the first band I ever really got into and is my favourite and I love it. All their songs are awesome. My favourite.
  • Me: *listens to panic!* Uhh actually I think I prefer this. Beebo has the best voice literally the BEST voice he is the best person ever I love him this is my favourite.
  • Me: *listens to MCR* okay I know they're technically dead but they'll never be dead to me. They make me cry but I love them. They just make me so happy they're definitely my favourite.
  • Me: I give up
Some Of My Favourite Things About The Nu-Who Era

• The Companions- particularly Donna, Martha, Rory and Bill

• River Song. Just, River Song.

• Captain Jack Harkness. I may not talk about him much, but he’s awesome.

• The epic adventure music we had in Matt Smith’s era. That was my jam back in the day.

• The casual LGBT representation. It’s been there since series one, but it’s never been a big deal.

• The Drunk Giraffe.

• There was actually an episode that used as many oo sounds as possible (Judoon platoon upon the Moon!) just to mess with David Tennant, because it was hard for him to maintain his English accent and say those words.

• I love the Master and Missy in equal amounts, because they are evil because they can be, and still act like the Doctor’s their best friend, especially Missy.

• Honestly, I’ll be sad to see Missy go- she’s basically a big ball of Glaswegian craziness, and she’s brilliant as a villain.

• The Paternoster Gang, because only on Doctor Who would you have a team comprised of a pair of interspecies crime solving lesbians and their pet potato.

• Nardole, mother hen extraordinaire.

• Amy and Rory’s relationship.

• “It’s smaller on the outside!”

• “Allons-y, Allonso!”

• “Bow ties/ Fezzes/ Stetsons are cool.”

• The Doctor’s entire message in Blink.

• All the nods to the Doctor’s past- Sarah Jane, UNIT, the Master, all the old monsters, even things like Twelve offering someone a jelly baby and the return to Coal Hill School.

• Many other things, but I can’t think of them just now.

While it is amazing that there are so many of our favourite idols who also write and produce music, I feel like there are some of you out there that forget that song writing and music producing is AN ACTUAL CAREER. There are people that don’t aspire to be performers themselves, but more to be the people behind the scenes. Whatever their reason - they could be tone deaf, suffer stage fright, or simply just want to work behind the scenes - this is their bread and butter. This is how they make money and support themselves. Please remember this in the back of your head whenever you go to diss a girl group or boy group that are mostly known for buying music, rather than writing music. Because at the end of the day, they too are helping someone fulfil their dream, and or helping someone with their career. Have a little more respect for that.

steve harrington x reader • at last

Summary: Your plans for New Years Eve involved cheesy TV and junk food, but you had forgotten to consider the Steve Harrington Factor.

Word Count: 1500+

Warnings: so much fluff.

Notes: This got longer than I wanted but still not too long I don’t think?? Let me know what you guys thought!! And feel free to send in requests if you wanna!! Also, I love one (1) man and that man is Steve Harrington. 

The song mentioned is At Last by Etta James which is also the source of the title.

The weeks following the closure of the gate were hectic. With Nancy and Jonathon semi-spilling the beans about Hawkins Lab, the kids trying to sneak to the cabin to hang out with El, and the mayhem of Christmas you felt like you barely had a moment to breathe. It was good, in a way, because it kept you distracted from the mess that your love life was rapidly turning in to.

You had known Steve Harrington since you were in kindergarten. You had had a crush on him since eighth grade, but you hadn’t actually become friends with him until you had got tangled in the mess of the Upside Down. You were never meant to become a part of all that business, but when you’d stumbled upon Jonathon, Nancy and Steve trying to kill the demagorgon while returning a book the Byers teen had loaned you, you didn’t have much of a choice.

You had hoped that your silly crush on Steve would ease as you got to know him better during the quiet year in between, but it had just gotten worse as you saw the genuinely good person behind his previous bravado and your friendship blossomed. Still, you had kept quiet; he was with Nancy and you weren’t about to be that girl who tried to get with someone else’s boyfriend.

They had only broken up officially a few weeks ago, and for all that Nancy had moved on it was obvious to you that Steve had not. So, for all that it made your heart ache, you still kept your rapidly deepening feelings to yourself. Losing Steve’s friendship wasn’t worth confessing your feelings when he was no where near ready to leave his own feelings for Nancy behind. You instead remained a steadfast friend and confined your pining to the privacy of your house.

Spending New Years Eve longing after your best friend just seemed a little too sad, though, and with your parents out of town for a romantic getaway you settled for dumb TV and a crap load of junk food. The TV was easy to immerse yourself in and was handy for keeping your mind off other things, which is why you were so surprised when somebody was knocking at your door.

You furrowed your brow as you clambered to your feet. You were sure it wasn’t any of the kids; Hopper had relented to the combined begging of six teens and was hosting a sleepover at the cabin. Besides that, it was almost 11pm which narrowed down the possible visitors even further. A sneaking suspicion whispered at the back of your mind, only to be confirmed when you opened the door to find Steve leaning casually against the frame.

“Hey, Y/N,” he greeted with a smile. “Can I come in?”

You blinked back at him before stepping aside, doing your best to ignore the brush of his arm against yours as he walked in. “What are you doing here?” you asked as you shut the door behind him.

“Can’t a guy drop in unexpectedly to visit his favourite girl?” Steve teased with a charming grin. 

You viciously smothered the blush threatening to colour your cheeks, knowing he was only joking around, and instead crossed your arms over your chest and arched an eyebrow expectantly. “Cut the bullshit, Steve. Weren’t you supposed to be at Tina’s party?” He had only nagged you about going for a week, but you had stood firm on your plans of doing absolutely nothing.

His cheeks pinked as you he looked down at his feet, shuffling in place. “You weren’t there. Wasn’t as fun as it could have been.”

You sighed as your posture softened, guessing that Nancy and Jonathan had been there to make Steve want to leave despite him trying to play it off, and gestured for him to follow you into the lounge. “C’mon. We’re watching soap operas.”

His answering smile was almost blinding as he trailed after you, looking around the lounge curiously. “You know, I don’t think I’ve ever been in your house,” he commented, making a beeline for the records on the shelf as you settled on the sofa. 

“My dad gets weird about boys being around,” you explained absently as you flicked through the channels to find something new to watch that Steve could enjoy, too.

The brunette hummed, perusing the shelves, and cracking jokes or making appreciative noises about some of the records that were out. As you so often did when you were alone with Steve, you felt yourself forgetting about everything outside of the bubble of the two of you as you bantered. As midnight slowly approached, Steve quieted as his fingers brushed over a dusty record you had never actually heard your parents play.

“This is one of my grandmother’s favourite songs,” he said, pulling it out of the sleeve and moving to the record player. “Do you mind if I…?”

You shrugged and switched the TV off. “Go ahead.”

He flashed you a quick half smile as he set it up, his shoulders relaxing as the soft music filled the room. He made his way over to you, bowing dramatically and offering you his hand with a teasing grin. You laughed, shaking your head with fond exasperation even as you placed your hand in his. He tugged you to your feet, his free hand curling around your waist as you hesitantly rested yours on his shoulder. His smile softened into something sweeter as he started leading you in a gentle sway.

“Who sings this?” you murmured as the soulful voice joined the music.

“Etta James,” he told you, fingers flexing against your side as he tugged you in a little closer.  

You could feel yourself blushing at the expression on his face as he looked into your eyes, so you dropped your gaze to your feet. “She’s, uh, she’s good,” you said after swallowing nervously.

Steve hummed in agreement, eyes trailing over your face as if searching for something. Your mouth felt inexplicably dry as he pulled you even closer, your chests pressed together as you moved slowly to the music. You could feel the words you had been swallowing back for weeks - months - years - on the tip of your tongue and in panic you searched for something to try and break the intensity of the moment.

“So, Nancy was at the party, huh?” you blurted, wincing almost immediately at the insensitivity of the question.

Steve blinked rapdily at you, head tilting to the side. “No, I think she and Jonathon were hanging out at his house, why?”

“Oh, I, um,” you stuttered, cheeks bright red. “I just thought… well, you know, you said the party wasn’t great and, um, you looked sorta uncomfortable. So I. Just assumed they were there and that was why you had left.”

He looked at you for a long moment before chuckling incredulously. “No, Y/N, that’s not why I left.” He hesitated, looking a little sheepish. “I was missing you, I guess.”

“Oh,” you replied quietly. “Okay, then.”

“And, I mean, aren’t you supposed to spend New Years Eve with the person you want to end the next year with, anyway?” Steve asked, voice nervous as he raced on before you could even answer him. “And that’s you for me, y’know? You’re my person - shit, I’m not saying this right.” He huffed out a frustrated breath as he brought your dancing to a halt. He looked you dead in the eye, squeezing your hand. “I know I’ve been kind of hung up on everything with Nancy lately but, well, Dustin pointed something out to me when I took him to the Snow Ball and it’s been bugging me since then. And I figured it out, and kind of panicked about it, but. Well. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I really like you, Y/N. And, um, you were the only person I really want to spend tonight with.”

You stared up at him, mind racing as you tried to process what he was saying. His expression started to drop and you scrambled to find something to say, to get out all the thoughts that were clamouring in you head, but you couldn’t find the words. You panicked when you felt his grip on you starting to loosen, his face regretful, and so you did the only thing you could think of; you leaned in and pressed your lips against his.

The kiss was soft and sweet, Steve responding almost immediately as both your arms curled around his neck, his hand settling on your hips and pulling you in. You sighed against his mouth, your entire body relaxing into the kiss. When you pulled apart for breath there was a silly smile on his face that you couldn’t help but return.

“Happy New Year, Steve,” you murmured as the clock chimed to indicate midnight.

“Yeah,” he returned. “Happy New Year, Y/N.”

The two of you started swaying slowly again as Etta James’s final notes drifted away in the background.

A glimpse of French music

A bunch of people asked me what french music I listen to and if I could introduce them to french music, i’m sorry if i took so long but I wasn’t sure what should I say, but I think i’ll just introduce you to my favourite french artists

The first one is actually from belgium but he’s quite popular in France, and I love his music and this artist so much, his name is Stromae

Quand c’est  (link) a beautiful song about cancer and its victims, very sad but very poetic

Tous les mêmes (link) In this song he breaks and fights against gender roles and clichés

The second one is a french rap band, with the two artists Orelsan and Gringe, what I love about this band is that their texts are not like so many french rappers’ texts, about drugs and sex and violence, but about real life matters and problems, and their texts are also very poetic. The band name is Casseurs Flowteurs 

Inachevés (link) is about their need of doing great things but feeling demotivated and ending up doing nothing, but finally realizing how they must achieve things by finishing their song

06h16-Des histoires à raconter (link) is about insomnia, the lack of self-confidence and regrets (and the music video is soooo beautiful)

Funfact: Orelsan is a huge anime fan and was chosen to dub Saitama from One Punch Man in the french version (an extract from the dubbing session)

I hope this will be useful and interesting for some of you!

Masterlist

A/N: Okay, so you guys really liked part 1, so here’s part 2! I also made a tag list! I really hope I remembered everyone! If not, just send me a message, and I’ll add you (or just comment, or send it to my inbox). I really like hearing what you guys think, and if you guys have any ideas for what could happen, please let me know! Hope you enjoy! (Oh!, and there’s a song mentioned! I feel like it kinda sets the mood, if you want to listen to it!)

When you walked out of your bedroom the next morning, you found Tom sitting on the couch. He was watching some random celebrity news channel, and when you looked at the screen they were showing several pictures of you and him together, mostly from last night.

“I would’ve left, but there’s a ton of paparazzies outside. Apparently, we are the new hot couple” He said, with raised eyebrows. “We are even trending on Twitter and Tumblr”

“So, I guess I have to spend the day with you. Just perfect” You mumbled to yourself, but he heard you. Or at least his eyeroll indicated that he did. “Maybe the whole moving in together, might not be such a bad idea? We are going to be stuck together for a while. Might as well have to bedrooms, so we don’t have to breathe the same air all of the time” You sat down on the other side of the couch, while looking at him.

“My apartment already have two large bedrooms, so why don’t we just move there? Then we won’t have to actually look at new apartments” He put his feet in your lap, and you instantly pushed them back down.

“Well that was easy. Where is this apartment of yours? We could just move today? That would definitely give them something to talk about” You pulled your legs up under you, and smiled kindly to him. Maybe, just maybe, you could actually become friends. If you were going to spend that much time together, maybe it could actually be enjoyable.

“Well, it might take a little time to move. I live in London. As in England. But yeah, it would definitely be something for them to talk about” He returned your smile, but yours quickly dropped. Was he joking? London?!

“Excuse me, what? You didn’t think to mention that? That your apartment is on another continent?” Did he seriously expect you to move to England? Just like that? How on earth could that be a good idea, even in his head?
