and i think that's the most beautiful thing

why do people say ‘welcome to the real world’, or ‘this is real life’. like when you are finishing school when ur 18 the rhetoric is now its over, the real life is beginning”
but then its 30s and ur expected to settle down and live a ‘real life’ because in your 20′s supposedly you were not in a real world 
then in ur  40s something different is expected of you and thats when people usually say ‘well this is life’, like it didnt exist before, like we dont think life actually exists til we have certain things or know certain things. but i am wondering this cause im watching my daughter live life, in an enchanting and inspiring way, exploring and laughing and playing with everything and eating everything, that is pure life… that is the experience of life in its most pure and beautiful, actual form, why would anybody want to lose that magic touch, but apparently this isnt a real world, none of its real until you have this mundane job and a semblance of a relationship and you pay taxes, thats the real life,  so it will have to be disciplined out of her so they say, so she won’t believe delirious things like the world is magical or that people are good, the real world is scary and everybody is against you, i dont think that is real life, those are motions without spirit, in all your living you forget to live

#DearMe,

it’s ok to give yourself a break when you feel like a failure and not be so hard on yourself for everything you think you should be but aren’t.

Perfection doesn’t exist. You do.

And you are amazing.

Okay so i’m assuming Adam probably lives at the Barns or stays there a lot during the time between the last chapter and the epilogue, so now i just can’t stop thinking about him there with Ronan and Opal, discovering wonderful things about the place and finding new reasons to call it home: 

  • Adam waking up to warm sun on his skin, soft sheets tangled up in his legs, Ronan’s warm body pressed against his own, feeling still and calm and so happy
  • Adam waking up on early mornings on weekends where he doesn’t have to work until the afternoon, and walking through the fields as the sun rises, Opal silently skipping after him, occasionally handing him pretty rocks or stones she finds buried under the earth
  • Adam and Opal going back to the house. Him hosing down her muddy hooves before both of them make their way into the kitchen where Ronan is making breakfast
  • Adam in old soft home knitted jumpers and plaid pyjama pants wrapped up in blankets, and Ronan, in front of the fire place, while Opal lies on her stomach besides them, making faces at Chainsaw 
  • All three of them star gazing on warm nights in secluded clearings Ronan used to play in when he was a kid
  • Adam converting one of the old barns into a garage and fixing up old cars while Opal watches over his shoulder and gnaws on old car parts Adam doesn’t need 
  • (Ronan being totally cliche and bringing him lemonade and watching his ass while he works under the hood of old cars)
  • Ronan having a stern lecture with Opal after that one time she chewed up Adam’s textbook and he had to dream him a new one, while Adam laughs in the background because Ronan almost sounds like Gansey and Adam can’t take responsible dad!Ronan seriously 
  • Adam becoming familiar and friendly with all of Ronan’s dream animals on the farm and Ronan can’t help but smile every time he see’s Adam cautiously petting or feeding them
  • Ronan, Adam and Opal watching old movies on rainy nights and all falling asleep on the sofa
  • Ronan finding his old stuffed animals and Adam suggesting they give them to Opal. She becomes attached to this ratty old teddy Ronan carried everywhere when he was 5 and she chews off the ear like 10 seconds after they hand it to her
  • Adam and Opal discovering a tiny pond with fish that sing quiet melodies when the sun shines on them and it becoming a regular spot for them to sit while Adam teaches her to read and write
  • Adam and Ronan climbing up the trees that surround the fields and watching the sun set from them
  • Adam teaching Opal about art and he and Ronan taking her on walks through the forest that used to be Cabeswater so she can collect leaves to make collages. Ronan tells both of them loudly how shitty they are but Adam catches him displaying them on the fridge a few hours later
  • Adam giving Opal his old watch again before he leaves for college and telling her to take care of it, and Ronan, for him till he comes back

anonymous asked:

I agree with u. Its not fair to assume that the people practicing magic do not know or care about where it came from. Most witches i know do extensive research, including myself. I am white, and i practice some norse and celtic magic i also use the italian tarot. I am only celtic, but i still respect and love the other practices and traditions. Thats why we all love witchcraft. Its not a one lane road but a club for everyone who loves magical, fantastical things. All of it is beautiful and loved

For the most part I think anything done from a place of respect and honesty is okay. There are exceptions of course, like closed traditions or the cultures of POC. These aren’t open to outsiders no matter how much that outsider might respect or be interested in it.
I don’t want anyone to think I’m supporting stealing from other cultures or that I think it’s okay, I absolutely don’t. I’ve spoken out on it many times. It’s something I used to do mysf and once learning it was wrong have taken strides to correct it and help educate others. It is NOT okay.

Also the types of villains I most enjoy are why I get so very angry when people are like “you just don’t like X villain because you’re a boring person who thinks people should only like good characters!”

like no, bitch, I just have standards for my evil

I need to start properly coloring my stuff again

Anyway, some kind of meeting-while-waiting-for-the-train AU? Something on the lines of “I don’t know what just happened but this man’s laugh is the most beautiful thing on earth, I don’t think my heart is beating anymore and fuck his train just arrived he’s getting up I still haven’t asked for his name fuck fuck fuck”

I like to think Kagami can’t find his voice in time before Aomine’s train goes away, and he spends two kind of miserable weeks after this because he may have as well just fucked up his once in a lifetime chance of meeting his perfect someone gfdi but then two weeks later he’s grocery shopping and there Aomine is, just two meters away from him, and Kagami doesn’t even think before launching himself forward, grabbing the other by one sleeve and asking for his name his number and maybe a date (Aomine accepts to give them all)

It takes Kagami around half an hour of actully staying with Daiki to realize that he’s an asshole and also incredibly irritating ugh 

(that doesn’t make him any less perfect tho, not that Taiga will admit it any time soon)

Everything about you is art
Your movements are brush strokes
Painting with the watercolour that drips from your fingers
Your voice a quill dipped in the richest ink
Writing poetry in thin air
Your mind alive with vivid ideas
Your heart radiating with kindness
Your soul overflowing with the deepest wisdom
You are more than just art
You are a masterpiece

you know what i love? Calum passion for music. like its just so obvious how much he loves music i mean his face lights up anytime anyone asks him about music, his spotify playlists are just filled with so many different types of music and that amazes me. the playlist that he made for us is almost 8 hours long, and i really think he’s the kinda guy that if he liked you he would just send you song after song for you to listen to and i think thats the most beautiful thing in the world.

Can any of you artistic people on Tumblr PLEASE draw the Doraelin scene from the end of Queen Of Shadows? You know the one I’m talking about, when they hold hands, merge their magic, become infinite and it’s basically the most beautiful thing you’ve ever read. I truly NEED this in my life!
And like if you do draw this scene, I will love you forever (and that’s a hell of a lot of love)

“until you start seeing a therapist and get the help you need, i think we should take a break”

‘well, t—–, we might as well call it off now because im not going to’

i dont know how long wed been dating; close to a year, i think. she was the first person id ever honestly loved. first serious relationship after a slew of awkward ones. she was kind and caring beyond reason and she loved me of all people. which was the most baffling thing about our entire relationship.

picture a disney princess; that was her. beautiful, kind, energetic, crazy ambition. really creative. wonderful writer.

then picture a really destructive sid vicious kind of guy.; thats the type of person i was when i was dating her

underage, i was drinking and doing drugs and she didnt like that, but didn’t stop me. shed just say be careful. one night we’re up late just talking and she asks me to tell her about my life and stuff. she wanted to know everything about me. i made the mistake of telling her.

she looked at me different after that. started connecting my drug use and alcoholism to things my dad had done to me as a kid but i kept telling her over and over i was over all that shit. i guess i kinda lost myself towards the end of it. i was angry a lot because all she’d talk about afterwards was how she thought i could use a therapist. all she wanted to do was help.

she was like the warm yellow light that poured over everything she loved, and i was the grey ice water trying to drown her.

id like to say that it was for the greater good. she wasnt right with me, i wasnt good for her. she was perfect. i was a punk. i realized that. i want to say that i let her go because i knew shed be better off, but the truth is, i just dont like being told what to do; especially when people use themselves like that.

that was the last message we sent each other. a few weeks later we kind of awkwardly met again and talked and by that point we were already strangers, even when she started to cry and say she wished we could get back together. i said i wished we could too but i knew that the same things that had made me begin to resent her would make me angry with her again since i was so against her aid.

that was roughly 7 years ago. i still think about her from time to time, even though im in a really good relationship right now. id just like to know how shes doing and hope shes okay and where she wants to be in life. she deserves that much, i think.

Fangirl Challenge: 8/16 Female Characters - Dorothy Catalonia, Gundam Wing

“… I’m not interested in results. You can leave things alone and still get results. Beauty lies in taking action. The action of fighting is the most fascinating human aspect. Throughout history people have fought over and over again. As if battles are the purpose of human existence. That’s why I started thinking this. It’s not that we shouldn’t fight. We must fight. That’s what it means to be human.”

Its taken me a few days and a few listens for me to even process it.. but me and my sounds immortalized on kendrick’s album..feels so beautiful. 

I cant stop listening. its crazy.. I think To Pimp A Butterfly is one of the best albums iv ever heard..(but im probably biased) It just embodies so much of what i love about music ..and musically sounds like its influenced by all of the things im influenced by so it makes perfect sense to me.

I just feel really blessed and proud to have my name on something I believe in and something that spreads love spreads change. Thats always been my goal with music and thats where most of my energy is put out. Thank you to all of u that have been sending me love and nice words i appreciate it. peace
