best monday of my life

does-it-make-me-bad  asked:

The most punk thing that ever happened to me was when stay up 44 hours straight 'cause I went (on the Saturday) to a graffiti job and from there to a party (where, I have to mention, the cops showed up 🤷🏽) and from the party back to the job (where I got lost in the way and had a major sunburn) and went home past midnight (Sunday to Monday - my birthday btw). It was the best weekend of my life tbh.

bruh that sounds GLORIOUS i’m so glad you had fun!

「…幼稚園のときに『セーラームーン』っていうアニメがありました。園庭でよくそのごっこをしてたんですけど、みんなはだいたいセーラームーンとか、セーラーマーキュリーを選んで、私はいつも最後まで残ったセーラージュピターです。セーラージュピターのイメージは緑でした。

色には順番があったんです。女の子が赤とかピンクとか色分けされたものを分けるとき、私が緑を選ぶ係でした。選ぶって言うか…選んだ振りで緑を取るんです。素直に赤とかピンクを選べる人が不思議でした。「あなた、人生、何回目?」って思いました。私がまだ一回目だからまだ赤が欲しいって言えない。

アニメの『セーラームーン』が敵と戦ってたけど、女の子たちのごっこの『セーラームーン』はセーラームーン同士で戦うんです。大人になってそれを別の言葉で知りました。「女の敵は女だよ」って。

私は初めからそこで負けていたから、他の子がファッションとか恋とか選ぶとき、私は勉強を選びました。好きじゃなかったけど、残ってから勉強を選びました。大学に受かって、友達とか家族とかみんな褒めてくれました。だけどそこにはいつも女の子なのに、変わってるよねっていうニュアンスが付け加えられました。

会社に入ってやりたいことを頑張ろうと思ってたら、テプラの研修があって。どうしてか女子だけがテプラの研修があったんですけど。同期の子が言いました。男が勝てば女に愛されるけど女は勝ったら男に愛されなくなる。女は勝ち負けとか放棄して、男に選ばれて初めて勝利するんだ。

あれ?じゃあ私一生勝てないじゃんって思いました。だって緑だもん、私、って思いました。赤もピンクも緑も全部黒ければいいのに。黒いセーラームーンがいたらよかったのにって。」

Focus on what you can control. What can you change, and what’s out of reach? Work to manage your responsibilities but don’t obsess over them. Do your best and then let it go. If things don’t work out, that’s okay. Think about how you’ll act differently next time and know you did your best.

I am excited.
I’m excited because I leave on Monday for the best vacation of my life. After slaving away at my two jobs this summer, I get to embark on a journey with the greatest group of friends I’ve ever had: the Toronto squad.
We’re road tripping to Ottawa to see the 1989 tour. Then, we leave the next day to see the tour in Montreal. The last time I was in Montreal was for the speak now tour and I am so excited to be back. The next day, we make the long drive to New York. On Wednesday and Thursday, the squad is going to explore New York and I’m so excited for that because we’re going to frolic and take selfies and laugh and eat ice cream. And then on Friday, we end the big week with going to the 1989 tour at MetLife in New Jersey. Half of us have b stage pit and I’m currently squealing that I get to be that close to Taylor this tour.
For every night, we’ve made costumes that took months to plan and make and I’m so proud of them. I’m so excited to walk into each venue with a huge smile on my face and a bad ass outfit on my body. During those shows I can’t wait to dance so hard and sing out of tune. I’ve been looking forward to this all year. The best part is I’m experiencing it with my best friends.
While I want to meet Taylor more than absolutely anything, I won’t be sad at the end of this week if I don’t. Because I know I would’ve had the most fun of the entire summer and spent it with the people I love. I’ll meet her one day.
I am excited.

You have to hope that [good things] happen to you… That’s the only thing we really, surely have, is hope. You hope that you can be alive, that things will happen to you that you’ll actually witness, that you’ll participate in, rather than life just rolling over you, and you wake up and it’s Thursday, and what happened to Monday? Whatever the best part of my life has been, has been as a result of that remembering.
