and keep it simple

So there is a pie baking contest at school tomorrow. Of course, I entered like the crazy person I am. 

I am making my pumpkin pie recipe (which is already killer), and then going to notch it up a level by adding some spiced, baked walnuts on top and some crust decorations. The walnuts are coated in ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon before baking, and then I’m gonna brush some maple syrup on for sweetness and to make it stick to the top. 

This is kind of an experiment, so I hope it turns out well!….Also, I would like to win….


Do you guys remember me telling you about the Dress fic?  Well you can thank @cannon-fannon @shesamarshmallow @dabvers for encouraging this nonsense.

It wasn’t supposed to be this hard.  There were rules in place, guidelines that she and Kara had hashed out over two bottles of wine (alien, for Kara) allowing them to keep this casual, simple, secret.  It was easy at the start, fuelled by alcohol and lust, taking over their intimate moments before the sun rose and settled them back into their platonic roles.  Months of late nights and sneaking home.

I usually agree with you on everything, but I'm very tilted on how everyone on Tumblr is portraying BTS as not wanting English music when RM himself said they'll make English music. I don't like how everyone saying the interviewers and fans are bad for "demanding" English songs when they just wanna know. Many people wanna know. Nobody is forcing them to make English songs. And I don't think it's right to say that male fan wasn't a real fan for asking a simple question innocently.

it’s not innocent to keep telling someone that it’s not good enough unless it’s in english when it’s all they’ve been asked. and there’s a reason why namjoon was saying “thanks for the advice..” and “that’s the question?” and “it’s not a priority” and trying to explain that music transcends language and it doesn’t matter that it is in korea and how their fanbase removes the language barrier by making everything accessible to everyone. no one is bothering to listen to him or what he says and it literally is being forced upon them

it is not innocent.

(1/3) sam holland didn't know that he was in love with you until you walked through the door to his home with a broad smile and some records. he watched you through bleary eyes as you set them up to play, wordless as you worked with eyes focused on something that he couldn't quite determine. he had texted you to tell you that he missed harry--he and his twin had always been the closest in the family--and that he was feeling alone. he was only ever vulnerable with you, and that should have been

(2/3) the first sign. he watches as you set up the record player and play an old billy joel album, a melody to a song that he has memorized flitting through the room as you walk over to him and sit on the couch next to him. you wrap your arms around him and pull him against your chest, hold him tight as though you can keep the negativity at bay with just a simple touch. and it’s then that sam realizes that you can. with you, he feels as though anything is possible. and it’s in this moment of (3/3) silence, this moment of rest, that sam holland realizes that he loves you more than a best friend should.

wow um 911 i’d like to report my own death

“ We are young, but we have heart. Born in this world as it all falls apart. “

The rules are simple: 

1. Keep to your turf to avoid beef with neighboring gangs 

2. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer 

3. Always keep your eyes open.

For years, each group has worked to gain control over their respective neighborhoods while developing alliances and rivalries along the way. Today, each gang has agreed to set their differences aside for a greater cause. Yakuza activity and corruption is on the rise, threatening everything the young delinquents have fought to gain. 

Bearing the scars of their past and waving the flag of their cause, the army of misfits ban together to take back what’s rightfully theirs.

Keep It Simple

by His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje

Once you have committed to a particular path, I suggest that you look for the simplest way forward. You should make things accessible and approachable in your religious community and in your personal practice, rather than more complicated.

Keep it simple. The life of the spirit is actually very basic and easy. We often don’t appreciate that. In the beginning, our spiritual path may strike us as very simple and perfectly clear. But then, after we have been practicing it for a few years, we sometimes find ourselves going backward, and moving away from that initial simplicity. The spiritual breakthrough we experience may simply consist in rediscovering what we had seen in the beginning.

Spiritual discovery is not a matter of finding wisdom out there somewhere. It is a matter of discovering what already exists within us. Like cleaning the surface of a stone inscription, the more you clean it, the more the original carving becomes apparent. We are like that stone. With spiritual practice, instead of gaining something we did not have before, we gradually make ourselves clearer to ourselves.

Always be committed to developing your mind. Learn something new every single day. Read things that no one else is reading. Never stop learning new knowledge, for we were given this amazing ability for a reason.

Here, have a thing

Hoo boy… I feel like I could right (edit: not fixing that lol) a book on how much this outpouring of love means to me but I think I’ll keep it brief with something simple.

I can never repay you for what you’ve given me but that doesn’t mean I won’t stop trying. I’ll be reading your messages all day because your openness and support blows me away every single time.

You all have so much love to give, it hurts.

Thank you

Shipping Nico with girls is homophobic. There’s nothing more to it. It’s homophobic. The end.
