best time of my life so far

tbh this year so far has been WILD cause things are SO DIFFERENT than they were last year and I am legitmately happy with where I am in my life and fucking content as shit and my mental health has been better or simply chemical (feeling sad but being like ‘idk why Im pretty happy with how shit is’) and like

its about fucking time

I love you,” Ty said, the quiet words devoid of any self-consciousness or his usual bravado. “And I’ve never been able to say that before with such conviction. I can’t remember a time that you weren’t the first thing I thought of, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I don’t care what stands in our way.

I Think We Made a Big Mistake

Lemme just start off by saying 2010 was a great year in animated shows. Unreal great. Like, seriously.








To put this in perspective, about 2007-2009 wasn’t a stellar time for animated shows. The best one by far was Phineas and Ferb, and maybe … El Tigre (which had so much personality and life, but I haven’t seen since it aired so I can’t tell you how it holds up), but there wasn’t a lot of new stuff that lived up to the top contender.

Also important to remember is that in 2009, Cartoon Network briefly went insane and wanted to transition to more live-action shows or live-action/animation mixed like Out of Jimmy’s Head. None of these really held my attention, and it took airtime from the cartoons that could’ve come out.

We also could point out that Nickolodeon was well on its way to airing basically only Spongebob and Fairly Odd Parents forever amen (as much as I love those shows).

Disney Channel hosted P&F, but other than that, pickings were getting slim.

So, realizing that, you’ve gotta understand how remarkable it is that we were getting so many good shows all at once again! It was unreal!

But it didn’t stop there, not even for a year.

2011 gave us families.

2012 gave us blends of story and comedy.

2013 gave us stellar characters in interstellar adventures (also the Mickey Mouse shorts, but that might not count).

2014 gave us surprises.

2015 gave us heart.

And this year? A return to form. What with the Loud House finally breaking Nickelodeon’s streak of poor nicktoons, Voltron keeping the action cartoon alive from the Avatar team we love, and the upcoming Milo Murphy’s Law from the creators of Phineas and Ferb.

There’s also shows like Mighty Magiswords and Long Live the Royals on the way that could just as easily make this list.

So the question remains. What the hell happened in 2010?

Well, I don’t know what caused all this, but I’ll tell you what happened.

Sym-Bionic Titan happened on Cartoon Network’s Toonami. And nobody told me.

When I stumbled on it way after the fact, I thought I remembered seeing something like that advertised when I was a kid. You know, early 2000s action show. I figured it got lost in the Beyblades, Ben 10s, and Yu-gi-Oh ripoffs, and I could at least make peace with that.

But then I find out this aired just a few years ago and I’m shit-pissed. aND MY OWN BEST FRIEND APPARENTLY WATCHED IT AND NEVER?? TOLD?? ME??

how dare you I instantly forgive you.

What I’m getting at is this is a high quality show. Really high quality.

The basic premise is summed up best here:

The three main characters include Ilana, princess of the royal family; Lance, a rebellious but capable soldier; and Octus, a bio-cybernetic robot, all of whom must now blend into everyday life in Sherman, Illinois. Posing as high school students, Lance and Octus work to conceal Princess Ilana from General Modula and his hideous space mutants sent to kill the sole heir of Galaluna.

When called into battle, the Galalunans are outfitted with individual armor that provides more than ample protection. It is when the gravest of danger appears that Octus activates the sym-bionic defense program and he, Ilana, and Lance unite “Heart, Body and Mind” and come together to form the spectacular cyber-giant Sym-Bionic Titan.

If that sounds great, it absolutely is. The characters are well-devloped, the story is front and center, there’s continuity between episodes– everything we’ve come to love in some of our modern favourites. So, my point is … why the hell was this left out of the cartoon revolution?

Well … honestly, I can’t figure it out. Advertising? Not enough cross-promotion in the daytime? Weak word of mouth? It’s certainly nothing the show did wrong.

Why Watch It?


I’m not gonna spoil much more than the summary, but despite the fact that it takes place on Earth for the most part and focuses on week to week stories, the overall story is very much in the forefront at all times– and you know how rare that is even for shows that do story well.


I’ll let you discover them for yourself, it’s too much of a treat, but I’ll just say, you might fall in love. Again.

Oh, and Voltron fans?

We found their son.

Reason 3: This Guy

So, even if you’re too young for some of these, you might’ve heard something called Samuri Jack is getting a fifth season after 10 years … and it’s going to be on Adult Swim.

Yeah, it’s gonna be badass.

The important part to all this is that this dude does awesome design, awesome shows, and if you have respect for any of these properties, you know you’re in for a good time.

Which leads me to

Reason 4: The Animationjfsfksnfksafafsj

Between the lighting and the angular designs, I just don’t know what to do with myself. Is bootiful.

Watch the first few minutes there. You see what I mean, right?

Reason 5: It Deserved Better

We’ve championed so many great shows in the past few years, but for whatever reason, we missed one. A great one at that. If you have any love for the shows I listed, I highly recommend you give it a chance. Who knows? You might just find another favourite.


too young - sabrina carpenter

I’m probably too old to be writing about this song, given that people I know my age are getting married on purpose, but if I think back far enough I can remember what it was like to be young and sure I was in love, so let’s go back in time for a bit.

When I was 13, 14, 15, I had a best friend. I quite genuinely thought she would be my best friend for the rest of my life, despite our long distance friendship. I also definitely thought I was in love with her, which was a lot of awakenings at the time but definitely not the point. The point is that I was 15 and in love, and defiant that I wasn’t too young for that.

If I’m too young / to fall in love / why do you keep running through my brain?

Sabrina sings the beginning of this song from an outsider’s perspective, things people have said to her. Everyone tells me I gotta go slow / and it’s gonna hurt sometimes / no matter what you do. When you’re young, everyone sets you up for heartbreak. Whatever it is, if you’re young, it won’t last. It can’t last. It’s not real.

I don’t want to say that’s true but it kind of is. I haven’t spoken to my old best friend since I was 18 and she up and decided we weren’t friends anymore. That isn’t fair to her, but this isn’t her platform, it’s mine, so for the sake of the narrative I wasn’t too young to know I was in love with her and she up and left.

So it’s gonna hurt sometimes.

I know better now than I did when I was a teenager, but I was in love then inasmuch as I knew how to be. It was real. If I’m too young / to know anything / why do I know that I’m just not the same? That’s real, inasmuch as anything can be real when you’re 15. I’ve got to fall to fly.

Sabrina’s not misguided or young, but what she’s experiencing is a specific kind of real that’s only real for a short period of time. It’s only real when you’re young, in those liminal teenage years where everything is too real and you feel it all more than anyone else.

2016 has been an amazing, amazing year for me. I loved this year so much. It was like all the amazing blessings that I got in Fifth Harmony and also in other solo projects that I did. I mean it was just a really, really great year for just like internal growth for me, I feel like I found a lot about myself and just really discovered happiness. It was a really, really amazing year for me, which is great because I feel like the year before that, I was going through a hard time and this year was probably the best year of my life thus far, so I’m really, really… really, really thankful.

lord I don’t even know where to begin but honestly this was the best day of my life by far. I never knew if I would ever have the chance to meet hope solo but I am beyond grateful to have had this opportunity. she is without a doubt the kindest, most genuine person I have ever met in my entire life. she really takes so much time with her fans and cares so much about what everyone has to say and listens to intently it’s so sweet I love her so much. when I first got there I met up with @in-solo-we-trust and we were waiting for @nardleylloyd to meet up with us and honestly I’m surprised the 3 of us held it together. after being able to jump ahead in line the day started moving by faster and eventually the people working in the store were asking us all to stand back and kind of form a line because she was going to be walking out soon and honestly when she did I thought I was gonna drop dead because she looked so good and it was so cute because she was giving everyone high fives and kneeled down to interact with the little kids next to us and she said she missed her fans which made me want to cry honestly. and then she held my hand for a moment and i nearly died on the spot like she really came for my whole life before I even met her. the entire time I’m waiting to meet her im just shaking and I’m so anxious because what do you even say to the person who has had the biggest influence on your life and who you look up to and admire more than anyone? I’m just trying not to cry and die the entire time but eventually when it was my turn to meet her I accidentally blurted out “oh god” and I’m 99% sure she heard but I don’t even care ahsjajdkaks. I literally had no idea what to say at first so I just thanked her for tweeting me on Halloween and she laughed and said “you’re the lucky one!” and I rambled on for a bit then I told her I got her a gift and she was like “aw its a late Christmas gift!” I said she didn’t have to open it right then if she didn’t have time but I at least wanted to explain to her why I got her what I did. (since hope has always talked about how it was her number one goal and biggest dream to win the World Cup and that she spent her whole life chasing a World Cup, and hoped that one day when she retires she will have become a World Cup champion, I got her a wanderer bracelet with the coordinates of where she won the World Cup and became a World Cup champion because those bracelets are to symbolize a place that is more important to you than anywhere else in the world and since her biggest dream came true, I thought it was fitting.) anyways she asked “do you want me to open it now?” and I said “if you have time!” and she said “CAN I open it?” and it was so cute because it’s literally a gift for her and she’s asking if she can open it lmao. so I wrote a note that said “because you said it was always your biggest dream to win the World Cup…” and then I explained to her why I got her that and she was like “awww!” and was so excited she was asking about it more and was like “so these are the coordinates in Vancouver of the stadium?” and I said yes and she like dipped down and turn to me with a big smile and said “no way! that’s so cool and so thoughtful. That is really sweet I really appreciate that!” and thanked me for the gift and was so sweet the entire time. I handed her the letter I wrote her after that and she was like “is this gonna make me cry? as long as it doesn’t make me cry!” and I told her that I cried while writing it so that speaks for itself and we both laughed about it. then after that she gave me a hug and I thought I was gonna die she gives good hugs but honestly I held her hand and hugged her in the same day and managed to survive? i truly cannot believe. but then she asked if she could sign my book so I handed her her book and she asked if she should sign the cover and I said that was fine and she was smiling so big when she handed it back and I told her thank you and she said it again and then i asked to take a photo with her but I’m so much shorter than she is and I told her I was so short and she laughed and grabbed my arm and moved it around like a selfie stick until we were both in the frame and I could take the picture and she held it the whole time. afterwards I thanked her again and told her to have a nice day and ahhhhh! I truly don’t know how I made it through this day but it was the best day of my life and I’m never going to get over this I literally love her more than life itself she is so genuine and sweet and I’m so thankful I was able to meet her because I literally have never wanted anything more in my entire life she means the world to me and being able to give her my letter telling her everything that I’ve ever wanted to say to her and personally thanking her is incredibly important to me. she really is the greatest person and she deserves the whole entire world and it was so nice to see her so happy and see so many people come out to see her and support her and you could really tell how much she appreciated everyone I LOVE HER SO MUCH


during still breathing billie joe leaned out so far to the audience and i managed to get these beautiful pictures (please credit if you use them)!! there is no zoom just me stretching my arms out as far as I physically could!! honestly the best night of my life, didn’t think they could get any better than the two times i’ve seen them before but of course they did! absolutely love this band and will die a hardcore green day fan ❤️

It would be hard for me to say that this has not been the best year of my life so far.

i meant to post this in time for new year’s and never got around to it but whatever it’s still relevant 

On Saturday I decided to start working out again. And, though it seems a bit crazy, I specifically decided I would work out every day (the reason being, I think habits are easier to break if they’re not every day). The caveat to that is, however, that I am not worrying about doing anything specific. Meeting some specific fitness goal. Just that I will exercise every day. And so far, I think that’s helped me get through it.

Yesterday I ran for 15 minutes straight. After not running for awhile and struggling a little through my 30-minute hilly run I did the other day (where I walked some of it), it felt amazing. I definitely slowed my pace down as time went on, but not terribly significantly. I was not actually keeping track, though, and I think that’s the best part.

I’m not forcing myself to meet some specific goal. I push myself hard in a lot of places in my life, so at some point, there’s an exhaustion associated with that. A sense of torture, even. What would happen if I vowed to run three days a week and didn’t feel like it one day? Most likely I would stop for a few days (or for weeks, possibly). So the fact that all I’m requiring myself to do is get out there is very relieving. And it’s made exercising feel better in a way that I think will allow me to keep the habit. I am facilitating myself to be active, and how active I am on any particular day depends on how I’m feeling. And I’m liking it.

Granted, I’m only on day 5. But there’s enough reason for me to think this will work great for me. After all, at my most fit, I worked out 6 days a week. At the least, I know I’m capable of that much.

This morning I was feeling a little sore, so I decided to just do a 4-minute POP Pilates challenge. It was super easy so I felt like I could do more, and decided to do a 10-minute POP Pilates butt workout. Even that one seemed easy, tbh! (Maybe it’s just a good day, who knows.) But the point is, I put in the time for the day, so I’m satisfied enough.

If you’re struggling trying to make a habit, perhaps consider this idea for yourself.

It’s Not About the Rings Ladies!

A young woman’s post has gone viral. Apparently, a saleswoman at the Pandora shop insulted her and her soon to be husband for their choice of wedding rings.

Honestly, I think the rings are lovely, and it’s the sentiment behind the pieces that matter.  This young couple didn’t have much, so rather than go into debt-they were smart. They choose something beautiful, that they could afford as a symbol of their love.  What’s more beautiful than that?

Apparently to many it’s a large rock.

At the end of this month, Roy and I will celebrate 17 years of marriage.  17 of the best and happiest years of my life.  I’ve raised five children with Roy, we’ve fought and made up more times than I can count. We’ve laughed and kissed more than that. We’ve been to far off places and walked around Orlando in the sweltering heat of August. He works his butt off so that we can give our children the life we want to give them-opportunities, the chance to travel, and the ability for me to stay home to be there for them.

When we seriously started talking about marriage-we’d been together for only about six months. Truth be told-I knew on our third date I was falling for him, and by our fifth I knew he was the one for me. Roy likes to say he felt the same. 

It was May of 1999. Roy took Addi and I to the mall.  Addi was fussy-as he often was-and Roy carried him, cradled in his arms as I pushed the stroller.  We went into a jewelry store, and started looking around.  I had my eye on the engagement rings, but I let Roy take the lead.

And then I saw it-a BEAUTIFUL solitaire. Just a little over half a carat, in a raised platinum setting.  It was simple, and to me stunning. The diamond was excellent quality-but it was exactly what I wanted. Simple, elegant and classic.

Roy picked out rings with larger stones, and I tried them on, but each time I returned to my original choice.

“Are you sure you don’t like this one?” Roy asked me.

It was a traditional round cut, set in a simple gold band-a little over a carat, and it was pretty, but it wasn’t me.

“I like this one.” I told him, once again returning to my original choice.

“First time the LADY’s ever picked the smaller diamond.” The saleswoman smiled at us.

And that night, Roy proposed-with the ring I had chosen. It’s a beautiful ring-and almost 18 years later, I still love it.  It’s still me.

I remember one day about 8 years ago, Roy and I walked into a jewelry store.  High end, everything under lock and key-security guards at both doors.  They were having a loose stone sale-and a young man put together a ring.

And it was gorgeous-one large diamond and one diamond about the size of my current ring-the idea was they would use the stone from my ring for the other size.  It was a vintage setting-three stones and it was pricey.

“It looks beautiful on you.” My husband told me, and he took out his wallet, prepared to buy me, what I’m sure he thought my dream ring was.

See, our lives had changed. Roy had worked his butt off and advanced in his career. As we could afford it, we’d upgraded things in our lives-as we could afford it and as we needed it. A bigger home for our expanding family. A larger car so the boys and I were comfortable.

And then he said, IF I wanted a new ring, something to replace what I had-he would get it for me.

Because that’s who he is-he wants me to be happy. 

And there I stood in that store, Roy looking at me, the salesman waiting expectantly. And I looked at that price tag-I thought about the things we could buy with that money, the vacations we could take-the things we could get and do for the boys. And I took Roy’s arm and told the salesman we needed to think about it some more.

Roy looked confused and asked what was wrong as we walked out, and I just looked at my wedding rings.

Those rings were chosen by US. When we made the decision to start our lives together, to solidify our union-we chose the rings I had on my hand. it’s not just the size of the rock, it’s the memories-the sentiment behind the ring. That new ring, while stunning, wouldn’t be MY ring.

“THIS is my ring.” I told my husband, “This is the ring I want.”

And we left.

And now, I look at my ring and I still love it. I haven’t looked at a replacement since that day about 8 years ago, and I don’t regret my decision to walk away from that vintage setting.  

And it isn’t just that I’d rather have other things-I’ve never been a jewelry gal. Roy has bought me some nice pieces over the years, but I prefer fun, fashion jewelry.  No, it’s more than that. The rings I wear proudly on my hand-represent a time and place for me. We were young, idealistic and so very much in love. THOSE are the rings we chose to represent that-and they are still the rings I wear proudly.

An engagement ring shouldn’t be about status, it shouldn’t say to the world, “HA! Look what I can afford.”

It should say, this is the person I choose to spend my life with-and you can’t put a price tag on that.


So, here goes….

I’m leaving New York.

After a little over four years loving and living in Brooklyn, I’m headed to the Pacific Northwest.

Sometime next month, Lauren and I are packing up our place in Williamsburg and heading off for our next adventure. In Seattle.

It’s nerve-wracking, to be sure. We’re moving away from my in-laws (whom we adore) and a lot of our friends. I’m leaving behind Etsy, the wonderful team I helped build there, and the best career I’ve had so far in my life.

But it’s time. Time to find a place we can really settle down and have the space we want. Time to live somewhere we can really get out there and enjoy nature. Time to have any commute at all that isn’t the motherfucking L train at rush hour (which, for the L, is almost always).

I’m taking on a role at Hulu in their office in Downtown Seattle starting mid-March and I couldn’t be more excited.

Or, I’d imagine I could be if I wasn’t tearing up at every landmark or brunch spot or (dear god, what am I thinking) bagel place.

Summary: Be careful for what you wish for, because you may never know how to deal with them once it comes true. What would you do when your wish for a second chance actually came true? But was it really a fulfilled wish? Too many questions lie when it actually happened. Were they real memories? Or perhaps a part of a past life? Was it only a dream all along? Will everything be different this time?

1. Feelings of severe despondency and dejection. “Self-doubt creeps in and that swiftly turns to depression.”
This is life ! A lot can happen in a matter of seconds, minutes, hours and a day! I’ve been here many times ! And I must say I have learned a lot & have came a long way . The best part is I know that God is with me always because I haven’t given up even when I was so close to. I ended up learning how to deal with depression from being at my lowest so far in my life .

I don’t normally share my personal life / stories with the world … But just maybe it will help someone out there and if I can do just that, then to me that’s such a blessing .

Social networks & in reality sometimes can paint a picture that makes this pretty girl look like she’s the most perfect woman in the world, living the most amazing life … But deep down inside she has none of the things you could imagine. She’s probably hurt, broken, feels ugly, doesn’t feel loved, lost, confused, no hope, no faith, no direction, no help, stressed, depressed, mad, angry & ready to give up because life is too much.

That was me from the age of 8 all the way to 19 years old … From 21 all the way to 22 years old (Won’t go into detail) .
Truth be told depression comes and goes and you don’t know how bad it’s going to hit you until it hits you .
You would see me there physically but I was never there mentally (on the same page with others) … I would try to do everything in my power to pick myself back up but I truly believe the when the Devil sees you at your weakest he will put his foot on your back and make it even harder for you to get back up. I tried, I really did . It got to the point where I had to keep quiet and literally listen to God and take baby steps every day all day. I was literally learning how to deal with the different stages of depression.
I know a lot of you call on God and it’s like you’re getting nothing but if you just breathe, call on God and stand still, God will direct you . Sometimes it’s God testing your faith in him.

Trying to figure out this thing called life isn’t easy but I believe in everyone .

“Never underestimate a girl’s love for her favorite band. Never think even for a minute, that she won’t defend them to her death. Because it’s not just the music that makes that band her favorite. It’s the guys, the gals. It’s the fans. People whom of which she has interacted with thanks to the band. That band might of saved her life, or just made her smile everyday. That band has never broke her heart and has yet to leave her. No wonder she finds such joy in her music.”
Now that I’ve had time to compose myself, I just wanna say thanks to everyone who made the past 5 days the best experience of my life so far. The band, the fans and the shows in general could not have been more wonderful. The lack of sleep, the travelling and the sitting outside in the cold for hours were ultimately worth it to see my favourite band at all 3 of their UK shows, 3 ½ years since they were last over here, and I can’t wait for it to continue in July!

Nice to meet you. Taken. (2)

Hector Bellerin Imagine: Part 1

As weeks passed me and Sav’s friends came closer. Especially with Alex. That guy is so funny and he doesn’t even try. Of course he is always bullying me just like Sav does and maybe worse but it’s not like I don’t bully him either. What I like the most is that he is being so over protective around me because he claims that even if I turned 18, I’m still underage and not an adult. As for talking about me turning 18. My birthday has been the best and the worse day of my life at the same time.

I wasn’t planning to do anything special other than going out to a club or something but Alex insisted that we had to have dinner first all together so we decided I would cook for them but as my place is far from London, we would do it at Alex’s place. No need to mention the fights me and Alex had while cooking.

As I barely had any close friends in England, other than the boys and a few girls from university, Alex had the incredible idea to ask the non-single boys to bring their girlfriends too so we wouldn’t be just four girls with that many guys at the club. And you know what that means. Hector had to invite his girlfriend Berta or whatever her name she said it was the other day when hector and her picked me up from the train station to drive me to alex’s place. That was one of the worst car-rides I’ve ever had. Hector being all flirty with her and me sitting at the back of the car still trying to figure out what “I would be stupid if I kissed you right now but I would also be stupid if I don’t” meant when he said it two days ago. Or maybe what he meant with all those ‘text me when you are safe and home’, ‘don’t drink too much tonight’, ‘don’t be too late back home’ texts he would constantly sent throughout the previous weeks. Or maybe when he drove all the way from London to my place just to spend the evening with me without even giving me a warning.

  • Writing to you is my way of chasing you. It’s an addiction, and it needs to stop.
  • I’ve decided I’m gonna let you drift away, knowing that who’s not meant for me, no matter how many letters I write or wishes I make, never will be.
  • And in case the Universe decides you do belong in my life, I know you’ll eventually find your way back, no matter how far you stray.
  • So this is goodbye. And this time I'll do my very best not to look back.
Happy belated new year and thank you for 14k followers!

I intended on making this post on new years day but as you all know, I hit a major rough spot in my life that put me out of action for a few days.

But first of all, happy new year to all of you guys, I sincerely hope you make the best out of 2017 and I hope it treats you well in return!

Secondly, I hit 14,000 followers on new years eve, a mere few hours before the year ended and it became so real for me. I only started posting on this blog in January 2016 and to see how far this blog has come in a short space of time is just mind blowing to me. Despite being there for every milestone, it just keeps boggling my mind each and every time.

So here’s to all of you. Thank you all for welcoming me at the beginning of 2016. I’ve been in many communities in my time on the internet, but none of them have ever had the spark that this one does. I’ve been in communities in the past where I’ve had to fake my personality to fit in, I’ve been in communities where in order to feel accepted, I must dull myself down and hold myself back, thus making my time there very miserable and somewhat scripted.

But this is the first community i’ve been in where, even without knowing me, you guys welcomed me with open arms and pushed me to let my personality shine, and this is where it’s gotten me a year later. 14,000 of you now listening to the shit I say and the advice I preach, the content I create and the constant reblog of dogs lmao.

So sincerely, from the bottom of my cold ass heart, thank you so much for making this community a wonderful place to be, and thank you to Mark and Jack for making this happen. I must always thank those dudes in these things too, because I’ve met so many personalities and friends within this small corner of the internet that wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for them.

So, in short: Thank you, you’re all great, love y’all, have a great 2017, dogs still exist, let’s make this year a good’un

@coltonlhaynes: Tonight the 100th episode of #Arrow airs…I am so thankful to have been a part of this show for 54 episodes & counting. I had no idea I was going to be in the DC world until the incredible @gberlanti called and asked if I’d come on for 3 episodes which then turned into multiple seasons of pure joy & more laughs than I can explain. I owe u the world Greg! This cast has seen me through my best & darkest times and I love them more than I can explain. I owe so much to the producers/network/cast/writers & crew for letting me be in this family but most importantly…we have the best fans in the world. The reason this show got this far is because of y'all & I’m sending so much love to every single one of you for changing my life. ❤️❤️❤️
