and i was so close too

Hey guys! With this time-travel event coming to a close, I’ve spent a bit of time cataloging this blog. A lot of you have been asking me to organise events by tag – so for your ease and mine, here they are!

I wonder if it would be wrong of me to try and finance enough money to be able to go back to college. See heres the thing, I originally had a full ride to University of Oregon right, I didn’t have to pay a dime, all I had to do was keep my grades up and attend classes and I’d get to attend any class I wanted to at their expense. 

But here’s the thing, I started to get really sick, both physically and mentally, and there were several really close deaths in my family at the same time, so I just couldn’t attend class because I was too sick, I was too psychotic [literally, I’m schizophrenic they didn’t know at the time so I wasn’t getting treatment], and was grieving the loss of some close family members, so I couldn’t make the attendance record, so my scholarship was taken away, but that isn’t the problem.

The problem is I owe University of Oregon itself $12,891.65 for not showing up to classes.

And the problem with this is, until I pay this off I can never go back to any college ever again, because FAFSA will not give you a loan unless you send all of your transcripts to the university you want to attend, and University of Oregon has frozen my transcripts.

I attempted to apply to a nearby university here, they accepted me, but said they couldn’t register me for classes or get me funding via federal aid until I sent my University of Oregon transcripts, they said this was the case with any university I would ever attempt to apply to. 

I worked so hard to be so near graduation, and all those courses that had already been paid for are frozen because of one term where I got too sick to function. 

It’s my dream to study physics and mathematics at school, I’m really interested in these fields, and I’m devastated that I’ll never be able to go to university ever again, because of this. I just wanted to go to school and learn about things I’m interested in, and now I never can again.

… would it be appropriate to try and raise money over the course of years via this blog to try and go back to university one day in the future, or is that selfish of me? I honestly don’t know, there’s just so many other people who need money to survive, and I just want money to go back to school, so I don’t know.

Like I don’t care how long it takes to raise it … I just ….. want to go back to school eventually, and every month they add 87 dollars to the total.

I’m disabled and on SSI so I can’t ever pay this back by myself, it is literally impossible. Is it selfish of me to make a youcaring for this and advertise it on this blog? Again I don’t care how long it takes I just want to go back to school sometime in my life?

Hi so you've seen in person what Sam and Cait have together, so in your opinion it's very real? Not a PR stunt? See this is what is mind boggling, how they can have other people in their lives romantically. But over this last year I've had a hard time with Tony popping up everywhere. But there is so much that doesn't add up in my opinion. I hope you have a good time at the Con and share lots of info and pictures!

it’s VERY real. I’ve always believed it was real bc their level of comfort and closeness, even in videos, seemed too genuine to be faked but seeing it in person just cemented that belief. I know I’m confused and incredibly frustrated/annoyed by all the bullshit surrounding them but I still stand pretty firm in my belief that I don’t think there ever was, is, or will be someone else for either of them.

Could you draw your favorite character From fnaf sl?

((wELL,, i guess its p obvious that funfoxy is my fav, but theres so much of her on this blog i thought i should draw my second fave who is vERY close to tying with her omg. i love enny so much u dont understand))

I’ve been trying to attract the neighborhood crows, firstly because I think they’re awesome, and secondly because we’ve had a problem with hawks, and hawks don’t like crows.

I tried setting out peanuts last year, but the squirrels got to them immediately, so this time, I made a bird-feeding tray thing, and attached it outside my window, hopefully in a place that squirrels can’t get to it.

It’s been there for a couple of weeks now, and I haven’t had any bird visitors - I was worried that the crows didn’t see it, or maybe were afraid to go too close to the house?

But today, soon after I woke up, a crow swooped past my window, cawing alertly, and then sat in one of the nearby trees, observing.

They know that the peanuts are there! Now, to wait and hope they’re smart and brave enough to come investigate closer…


Fun fact: Sims can die from laughing to death if they get too playful, and im pretty sure Emma got close. We cant have one of our brides keeling over dead, so I locked her in her room to blow off some energy


Two things I’m happy about this morning!  New workout shirt (I really think this would help, by the way, and one of my work programs focuses on teaching empathy through reading) and my breakfast!  The breakfast is always prettier before I mix it, but man, yogurt with berries and granola is the best!  So delicious!

Tomorrow, tickets for Dave Chappelle at the ACL Live theater go on sale, and I’m really hoping I can grab two to surprise the husband!  The actual show is close to our wedding anniversary date, too, so they’d be the perfect gift!  He has been so damn sweet to me lately even though I’ve been feeling a bit icky, so I want to do this for him.  We enjoy comedy shows but haven’t been to one in a while.  Jim Gaffigan also has a show coming up there in April–that will be my back up plan (or additional plan) if I can’t get the Chappelle tickets.

I have lunch with a fabulous friend to look forward to this afternoon.  I honestly cannot believe she has time as she was just this week promoted to vice president of her international company. I honestly cannot even imagine.  Our lives are nothing alike, but that doesn’t matter because she’s an amazing person and so kind and thoughtful and warm!  Whenever we see each other, we’re able to immediately get down to important things! :)  Looking forward to it!  Now, back to work! ;)

Underground street racing

do you even KNOW ME.  do you know how much i have to wildly repress every urge in my sick, weary bones to write a fast and the furious AU???  let’s talk about VICTOR NIKIFOROV and his SEM’YA (”i hate it when you call us that,” yurio complains), a group of elite street racers in st. petersburg.  word on the street is that they (”they’re bravda,” agent nishigori corrects later, after yuuri’s gotten too close, “not sem’ya”) have been hijacking entire military convoys and stealing government weapons to deal on the black market.  previous attempts to infiltrate the group have been futile, and when pressured, the GRU contracts M16 agent and former japanese drift king yuuri katsuki to go undercover.

it would have everything i love forever, like SECRET IDENTITIES and MISUNDERSTANDINGS and yuuri and victor fucking in and on a ton of hot cars.  it turns out that the nikiforov family is being blackmailed by the russian government, because there are no bad guys in YOI, but russia has vladmir putin??? so anyway, victor finds out yuuri is a secret agent when he saves them from a set up, and they get into a fight and yuuri says, “let’s end this,” and they Sad Fuck in a car before taking down the entire russian government withs cars, and then yuuri offers victor a ten second car to help him escape and start a new life.  “that’s what you wanted after you beat me in that first first race, right?” yuuri asks, and victor takes him buy the hand.

“yuuri,” he says, “all i ever really wanted was you.”

anyway, they run away together and have more sex in cars and it’s SUPER. 

Not Enough Time - Poe Dameron X Solo!Reader

Could I request one-shot that Poe Dameron and Solo!Reader (You’re younger than Kylo four years) have secret relationship. You’re alike you father,Han Solo and one day your parents found their daughter and Poe kissing.

Originally posted by not-so-graceful-grace

I’m sorry it’s so short. I tried to make it funny though!

You let out a giggle as Poe pulled you close to his chest. Despite the literal, and figurative, darkness surrounding you, you were actually happy at the moment. “I missed you,” he murmured, kissing your cheek. Poe had been on a week long mission, so when he returned, he found you quickly before your mother could hand him another mission. “I missed you too,” and you felt him smile against your lips as he kissed them.

It wasn’t the most romantic thing, making out in a closet, but it’s what you had to do. You were not only General Organa and Han Solo’s daughter, but you were also the only hope some had to defeating The First Order; defeating your brother. The mood died down a little bit as you thought of your family, torn apart by the Dark Side’s claws once more. Poe noticed and stopped in his actions. “Thinking about him again,” he asked quietly, brushing hair out of your face. “Yeah, sorry,” you murmured, but you felt him place a reassuring kiss to your forehead. “It’s alright, it’s stressful,” he said, “but I know you can handle it. You’re amazing Y/N. So powerful and talented.” You let out a giggle, “I get that from my mother.” He chuckled, “the rest is all feisty smuggler,” you added. “Damn right,” he said, “that’s the best mix.”

You leaned in a pressed you lips back to his, savoring the feeling. There just was not enough time to spend saving the galaxy and hiding a secret relationship. Having to sneak around you parents was the worse, but you didn’t want them to worry about you when they also had to think about an entire galaxy. Your thoughts were broken by the feeling of Poe’s hands on your waist. You moved one of your hands to cup the back of his head, pulling him impossible close. Right before the kiss could get even more steamy, the closet door flew open.

“Dameron, Leia needs you and Y/N in the meeting room now,” You almost screamed when you heard your father’s voice. “Dad!” Han just rolled his eyes and laughed. “I already knew about this, your mother told me she saw you two disappear into your room one night and, while I may be old, I can put two and two together.” You just buried your face in your hands while Poe tried to speak, but all that came out was stutters. “I’ll see you both in the meeting hall,” Han said, walking down the hall, laughing loudly. You and Poe rushed out of the closet, pretending that everything was fine. “At least we don’t have to hide anymore,” you pointed out, but Poe still looked terrified. The meeting hall was practically empty, minus a few workers and the normal droids.

You saw your mother leaning a screen, scanning the article for any information on First Order plans. “G-general Organa,” Poe stated, bringing your mother’s attention to the both of you. “Ah yes, Poe this intel you gathered has been very helpful. We can now alert smaller systems to when the First Order will strike them.” He dipped his head at Leia’s praise. “Mom, what am I doing here?” You asked shyly, and your mother just smiled at you sweetly. “I just wanted to give the two of you my blessing, I figured it was about time.”  You glanced over at Poe who, despite his confidence and charm, was beet red. “Thank you,” you said, and Poe stepped forward. He opened his mouth to speak but your mother silenced him. “I already know that you’ll protect my daughter, all I ask is that if she gets to be too much too handle come to me.” Poe let out a nervous laugh. “Hey!” You shouted, but your mother only laughed. “You’re so much like you’re father, Y/N, and you know how he can be.” You nodded at her words, “it could be worse.” You almost wanted to slap yourself for referencing Ben, Kylo. Your mother’s face fell briefly, but looked back at you with a soft smile. “I know it can be, so I hope that you and Poe make things better.”

You glanced at Poe who gave you a smile, “we’ll try.” Your mother nodded and watched as you and Poe joined hands. “Dismissed,” she said and the two of you walked out. When you were out of earshot, Han laughed from his hidden spot. “They remind you of anything,” he asked, nudging Leia softly. She laughed, joy reaching her eyes, “yes, but our daughter has much better taste!”

We were friends for about 2 months. I met him through my older sister when he started talking to her, but he was younger and closer in age to me. We talked every day and I would wait for messages from him. He lived about 45 minutes from me, in the west of the city and he would always want me to go meet with him but I was too scared, as going on public transit alone scares me. He understood, but didn’t like it. We never dated, but we were close. I remember he would say: ‘whenever we meet up, there’s something I have to tell you.’ And he said that he wouldn’t tell me over text because he was scared of rejection. I would always try to get him to spill, but he never did.
There was a carnival coming to the city and I told him I was going. So he said he would meet me there. He never did.
The breaker was when there was a convention in the city and I told him I was going. After a lot of convincing, he said he would go. I met up with him and hung out with him for about 20 minutes. He had a pass to buy so he said he needed to go to the ATM to get some money for it. So he went down the campus to find one. I texted him if he had found it and he said that it was ‘too hot and expensive’ so he just. Left. After that, I would message him and he wouldn’t reply. A couple days later he blocked me on Facebook, where we mainly talked. I was heartbroken. I liked him and he liked me, at least he did through text. When I would hang out with friends they would take my phone and text him, but it never did much. Eventually, I plucked up the courage to text him. He said someone else was in his life. We weren’t dating, so why would it have mattered? Plus, what was the likeliness of 'someone coming into his life’ right after I met up with him? I didn’t reply, and I wish I hadn’t told him I would stop texting. I wish I could have dug deeper into his shitty explanation.

My mom just made me feel bad about being gay .. and i immediately came here, your little stories help me so much and they make me so happy i don't even know you but ily. I hope you are having a great day ♥️✨

I’m really sorry to hear that, dear. :( It’s terrible when anyone makes you feel bad about who you are, but even more so when it’s close family or friends. 

Just remember that you /are/ perfect the way you are, you’re amazing, and beautiful and ily too! May the rest of your week get better, and I’m glad my blog could help a little! x 

anonymous asked:

Ok so I think Danai is a goddess. If you could send her any of your fanfics to read, which one would you send her? Also, after all of this Richonne goodness, I'm in need of a smutty one-shot where Michonne calls Rick Papi. These two characters are just too hot together and I will be useless after 7.12. The Richonne fandom is so much fun because we understand this couple and why they work.

Oh god, none of them! Maybe, with a gun to my head, she could read “Close To You.” It’s short, sweet, and there’s no sex anywhere involved, haha. Maybe certain chapters of “Her,” but definitely not the whole thing. I’d be mortified. 😄

But yes, she is a goddess, and she (and Andy) make this whole thing go. I absolutely cannot wait until our lives are ruined by 7x12. To experience this ship and this fandom for the past few years has been incredible, and I think it’s quite lovely that we’re all gonna die together. 🤗

“Because I love you god damn it!”

Request: Number 37 with Finn when he’s being overprotective

Prompt: #37 “Because I love you god damn it!”

Ch: Finn Shelby

Finn’s eyes darted at Tommy, slight anger behind his baby features. Tommy was chatting you up, making you smile and laugh as he was foresaken to drink alone. Finn was wonderstruck about what could be so funny. You knew the Shelbys for what was 18 years, your whole life. Finn was who you were most close too, the other boys looked over you as if you were a lost sister of some kind.

“Aye Finn, what’s with the silk?” John laughs, mentioning him over, Finn just shakes his head. taking another sip of his beer. “Finn.” You smile, spinning to face him. “Why aren’t you joining us?”

“Don’t feel like dealing with my brothers.” Simple answer that was flatly given to you. You frown, hand pressing to his cheek. “You’re angry.”

Finn shakes his head, face softening due to the touch, the touch he longs for only many lonely lights. “I’m fine love.” His voice is soft, his hand covering yours on his cheek. “Just don’t think you should be involved with all this stuff.”

You smile, knowing he’s worried about you. “Finn I will be fine.” He grumbles, turning back to face the bar. You let a giggle fall, taking his hand, tugging him to the floor. “Dance with me.” 

Finn smirked, intertwining your hands together. “I couldn’t have a better dance partner.” Truth is he hated dancing, but loved seeing that smile on your face. Loved his arms being wrapped around you.

“Absolute fucking not.” Finn crushed the cigarette on the wooden table. You rolled your eyes. “Good think it’s not your choice.”

In a fit of rage, he slammed the chair in, his fist hitting the brick wall, blood splattered against the wall, and his knuckles, blood dripping as he stormed out of the house.

“Finn!” You cry, trying to catch up to him, but he was just to fast. “Finn please, I can’t breath!” Finn stopped right in his tracks, fist clenched, scarlet blood dipping.

“Finn why do you care so much?” You mumble,stepping closer to him, but stop about five feet away from him.

“Because I love you god damn it!” Finn’s hands reached your cheek, pulling you close. His lips met passionately with yours, the kiss heated, his tongue softly caressing yours. Blood now covered your cheeks, Finn pulled back, sighing, he takes his sleeve wiping, and chuckling to himself. 

You press your lips against his, Finn letting out a small celebration moan. “I love you Finn, always have.”

Happy Birthday, evolution-of-magic!

February 22 - “No, I don’t know how I got a boner, it just kind of happened! It’s because of how you were eating that ice cream, I bet!” Victor/Darcy, You Came Back ‘verse, secondhand embarrassment because Logan hears, for @evolution-of-magic

Darcy woke up being carried up a flight of apparently endless stairs by Logan. “Oh,” she said vaguely, “it’s you. Good. Is Victor here?” She could feel him, vaguely, through the soulmate bond, but she felt too unwell to focus on it.

“He’s angry and taking it out on those bastards who had you,” Logan said shortly. “He knows I have you safe. He’ll be along shortly.”

Victor also didn’t like for Darcy to see him covered in blood, she knew, so she let her eyes drift closed and relaxed in Logan’s hold. He didn’t feel or smell quite the same as Victor, but it was close enough to be comforting, and comforting was good after the last few days.

Alright, kids. It’s kinda late but my days are usually pretty busy lately. So you’re gonna have to deal with the late night intro. I’m Charlie and you can call me whatever you like. I’ll learn to answer to it eventually. Or I won’t. I’m getting old and I’m not good at learning new tricks. I’m currently running press tours for a couple films coming out early this year, which means I’m gonna be all over the world for a little while. Try not to look too closely at the hair, you might find some grey ones.

You can find me on aim at cyanidesweettooth if you ever wanna chat.
