You got into a small argument with Jin about what to have for dinner that escalated into a full blown fight which caused you to switch to your native language. He was having none of it. “Yahh stop! I don’t know what you’re saying!”

Yoongi came in to your bedroom to ask how your studying was going. You began to yell in your first language about how you were tired and annoyed and just wanted to eat already. Yoongi just shrugged. “Well. Proud of you I guess.”

As you decided to do your make up for today, Hoseok was watching TV beside you. You kept messing up on your eye liner and having to restart. You cursed in your native tongue which caused Hoseok to sit up and look at you. “Who are you yelling at?”

Being the genius Namjoon is and being together for as long as you two have been, he started to pick up on some of the words and phrases of the language of your home. You were cooking dinner one night and threw in too much salt on accident. “It’s all ruined now!” You shouted in your native language. “Well that’s okay, we can always order out.” He responded with a smile. You laughed a little and shook your head. “Well how am I supposed to talk shit about you now?”

Jimin loved it when you got upset and yelled in your mother tongue. He thought it was so attractive. “Babe I lost your wallet again, sorry.” “Jimin how?! This is the fifth time!” “I love you too, baby!”

You dropped your new, favorite glasses on the floor. Causing the lenses to come out and break. You screamed out and cursed in your first language. Taehyung looked at you curiously. “Teach me what you just said, that sounded cool!”

As you tried to get comfortable in bed but just couldn’t, you sighed loudly and huffed before swearing in your first language and hitting your pillow with anger. Jungkook moved closer to you to tease. “Hey…you’re mad right?”

Listen I know we all love bilingual Lance and boy oh boy guess who’s here with some bilingual headcanons!!

•Lance used to speak fluent spanish as a child, but when he started going to public school, he just … Lost that ability.
•Lance can understand some words and phrases in spanish but doesn’t really know how to form sentences. (he knows all the cursewords and tries to use them as much as he can bc that’s Cool™)
•He can understand enough words to get the gist of what people are saying.
•Lance started to feel kind of detatched from his family since he couldn’t speak spanish and basically everyone else (save for the younger kids) could.
•His family doesn’t put any effort into teaching him spanish bc they want him to be more American than Hispanic (a sad truth that I unfortunately experienced)
•Lance starts to take spanish classes seriously when he gets to high school. He slowly learns how to form proper sentences, and he’s at the top of his class bc he wants to connect with his family language-wise. He tries hard, and grasps the language without any help from his fluent-spanish-speaking parents.
•One time, he had to do a project in spanish class, but he didn’t know how to form the sentence he wanted. So, he goes to his parents for help.
•Big mistake.
•His parents are from different regions of south america, so they speak different forms of spanish. Whatever he’s learning at school is. Not. The same.
•He had to go back and forth from his dad to his mom for one goddamn question like holy crow.
•"No, no! Your father is wrong! I speak PROPER spanish!“
-That was an actual quote from my mother it’s legit.
•His father ends up being right. At least in terms of School Spanish.
•Lance’s teacher ended up taking points away anyway bc she knew he wasn’t capable of speaking in such eloquent, complex spanish.
•He once went over his vocab list with his fam since he forgot his spanish dictionary at school. Another mistake. Don’t ask your different-spanish-speaking parents for translations when they’re in the same room.
•They spent more time arguing about the translation than actually translating.
•Mom: “Aficion? I’ve never heard that word in my life! It doesn’t exist!”
•"It means ceiling fan, mom.“
•M: “Oh! Then you mean ‘hincha’!”
•Dad: “Hincha?! Are you trying to teach our son slang?!”
•"Wait, that’s slang?!“
•"Well, ya-”
•D: “Aficion es the tiki tiki.”
•M: “No. El tiki tiki es la hincha!”
•They slowly seep into full spanish and Lance is watching on in amusement.
•He ends up texting his aunt about the right answer, and she tells him that it’s aficion.
•Mom loses the argument.
•He has a presentation in class for an oral test. He knows he has a great accent and great understanding of spanish, but when he goes up to speak, he can’t say anything.
•Everything comes out slow and stuttered, but he still gets an A+ bc his pronunciation is on point.
•There’s a non-hispanic/latinx kid in his class. They get straight A’s and speak faster than Lance. Lance is jealous of them. It’s not fair that a person who isn’t surrounded by latin culture can speak it so well, while he can’t.
•They’re the top 2 in the class, but Lance is always second. He’s always second in everything.
•Eventually, Lance learns enough Spanish to understand full sentences. He gets a giddiness in his chest when he can understand EXACTLY what is being said in spanish. He loves it.
•Even when his parents are scolding him in spanish, he tries his best not to smile bc he UNDERSTANDS!! •He tries to get his parents/family to communicate with him in Spanish more bc he’s so proud that he can FINALLY understand them. He feels connected to them again, and loves the feeling of embracing his heritage at last.
•Then … His family asks hin why he never talks back in spanish.
•Lance is still shy and insecure about his spanish, bc sometimes he makes mistakes. And sometimes, fluent speakers are not the nicest when it comes to that. He’s afraid they’ll make fun of him bc he’s still learning.
•He goes to a restaurant that has people who only speak spanish in it. He then has to order from the menu.
•He asks for a soda. When the waitress leaves, his entire family is beaming at him. He asks why.
•They gush about his perfect pronunciation and format. They’re proud of him. They had no idea he knew it so well.
•Lance is almost brought to tears bc his family is just as proud of him as he is - especially on something so important to him.
•He talks and laughs with his family at dinner again after that.
•When he gets in space, he tries to keep himself knowledgeable in spanish. He doesn’t want to forget again.
•He listens to old spanish radio shows and songs all of the time. He listens to sports, no matter which kind, in spanish.
•He tries to teach the other paladins Spanish. He grins when they start cussing under their breath in spanish. Sometimes, the paladins will just slip into it and they’ll forget that they’re speaking another language bc it’s so second-nature to them.
•But Lance notices, and it feels a little more like home.

Te amo .....I love you

Te amo
Sin limites,sin condiciones,ni porques
Solo se que te amo
En silencio y a gritos
Con todas las fuerzas de mi alma
Con cada pensamiento de mi mente
Con todas las pasiones de mi corazón
Con todos los besos de mis labios
Con todos los versos de mi pluma
Ya no es el sol que me illumina, sino las estrellas en tus ojos
Ya no es aire que respiro, sino cada suspiro de tus labios
Y lo unico que me alimenta es la verdad que se refugia en tu piel
Asi te amo, todos los dias
Y tu….
Sin saber que eres mio sin serlo.


I love you
Without limits, without conditions, or whys
I just know I love you
Silently and outloud
With all the strength of my soul
With every thought of my mind
With all the passions of my heart
With all the kisses of my lips
With all the verses of my pen
It is no longer the sun that illuminates me, but the stars in your eyes
It is no longer air I breathe, but every sigh from your lips
And the only thing that feeds me is the truth that takes refuge in your skin
That’s how I love you everyday
And you….
Not knowing that you are mine without being so


I really enjoy reading books where part of the dialogue and even some of the internal monologue are in a different language. I love seeing people switch between different languages, it’s so natural for some people, and it’s cool to get see how a bilingual person thinks and speaks, as someone who is monolingual. And it’s also super educational as well. The other day, I read the first few paragraphs of an article in Spanish and I understood it without having to translate it, and I don’t know Spanish, like at all. It was crazy and super cool and I just really love bilingual books. This is basically me just saying I love bilingual books and they are super cool. 

Je t'aime. Aujourd'hui. Ce  soir. Demain. Pour toujours. Si je vivais mille ans, je t'appartiendrais pour tous. Si je vivais mille vies, je te ferais mienne dans chacune d'elles.

I love you. Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever. If I were to live a thousand years, I would belong to you for all of them. If I were to live a thousand lives, I would want to make you mine in each one. 

from The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Tu eres la esperanza de mis ojos profundos y sagrados

 La ambrosia que escurre de mis labios

 Las Valquirias cantaran la gloria de tu nombre

 aquí en mi corazón 

Y en el laberinto de tu cuerpo 

se perderá la soledad de mi destino 


You are the hope of my deep and sacred eyes

The ambrosia that trickles from my lips

The Valkyries will sing the glory of your name

here in my heart

And in the labyrinth of your body

the loneliness of my destiny will get lost 


“No tengo celos de las personas que alguna vez hallas amado pues cada historia de amor es diferente pues es una conjunción de espacio y realidades, de tiempo y sentimientos. Tu eres mio ahora, en este tiempo y espacio,justo así como piensas y sientes en este instante en que me amaste y este instante me basta para vivir una eternidad contigo.”


“I am not jealous of all the people you have ever loved since each love story is different because it is a conjunction of space and realities, of time and feelings. You are mine now, in this time and space, just as you think and feel in this instant that you loved me and this moment is enough to live an eternity with you.”


The Ultimate Wingman by Luna_Vulpes/ @paperrabbit13 (25/25 | 133,128 | Teen and Up)

Lance and Hunk have moved in to the new student apartments at Garrison University called The V at Garrison.

Living on their floor, they meet and befriend their neighbors: Pidge, a child prodigy in robotics. Matt, Allura, and Shiro, life time friends with the boys watching over their siblings. And Keith, the anti-social boy who hates change.

As time progresses, they all become friends and Lance finally finds someone to help him explore his bisexuality - his gay neighbor Keith.

They strike a deal = Lance helps Keith find a social life while Keith becomes Lance’s wingman, but what happens when both men realize that their deal has become more complicated than they expected.

- Vallie

When the windows like the jackal’s eye and desire pierce the dawn, silken windlasses lift me up to suburban footbridges. I summon a girl who is dreaming in the little gilded house; she meets me on the piles of black moss and offers me her lips which are stones in the rapid river depths. Veiled forebodings descend the buildings’ steps. The best thing is to flee from the great feather cylinders when the hunters limp into the sodden lands. If you take a bath in the watery patterns of the streets, childhood returns to the country like a greyhound. Man seeks his prey in the breezes and the fruits are drying on the screens of pink paper, in the shadow of the names overgrown by forgetfulness. Joys and sorrows spread in the town. Gold and eucalyptus, similarly scented, attack dreams. Among the bridles and the dark edelweiss subterranean forms are resting like perfumers’ corks.

College tips:

With school starting soon, here are some tips!

  • Don’t sleep on your school library! I’ve saved so much money borrowing books that I needed for class instead of buying them from the bookstore or Amazon. I literally spent less than $100 on books for both semesters because I borrowed from my library. Also, check to see if your library has an inter-library loan program so that even if your library doesn’t have a book, they can get one for you from another library!
  • Take a language! Doesn’t matter if it’s not one of your major/minor requirements. Jobs and internships LOVE having bilingual/multilingual people working for them. And it’s always a plus to be able to engage with other people who speak the language. It opens so many doors for you.
  • Always, always, always be in contact with your professors. Make sure they know your name and your face because that will come in handy. If you need help with choosing essay topics, talk to them! If you have a question about an assignment, ask them! It might be intimidating at first but you don’t want to get to finals week asking for extra credit and they don’t even know who you are, especially if you’re in a large class.
  • If you’re a senior like me, do not wait until the spring to make sure you’ve taken/are registered for all of the required classes you need to graduate. For everyone else, it’s better to start that process your junior year. The last thing you want is to have your advisor run an audit in the spring and tell you that you’re 2 credits short of graduating and then you have to stay another semester. 
  • If you’re feeling burnt out and just need a mental health day, take it. Sleep in if you have to. Go home early if you have to. College is mentally draining but you don’t want that to affect your grades, your social life, or your overall happiness. If you need a day to recuperate, email your professor and take the day off. But don’t make it a habit. If you’re always feeling mentally drained, talk to counselors on campus. 
  • Don’t feel like you need to sign up for every club or go to every event. It will stress you out. Find at least 2 or 3 clubs that spark your interest and stick with them. It’s very common that you’ll sign up for like 10 orgs but only stick to 2 by your senior year. 
  • Make friends in your class because they will save your ass if you miss class. Those are the friends that will send you notes in case you’re out sick, taking a mental health day, celebrating a holiday, etc. Sometimes there are days where you won’t miss much but you want friends who will help you out for the important days. Also, it’s just nice having friends in general.
  • When it comes to making your schedule, give yourself lunch breaks, unless you just have morning classes. Do not schedule classes for that time. You gotta eat.
  • Also with scheduling, try and make it so that you have Friday’s off. In my 4 years, I’ve only had class on a Friday once and it was in the morning. As stressful as college is, give yourself a 3 day weekend to rest, hang out, or review class materials. It’s not necessarily a big deal but it is something to look forward to.

I feel like there’s more but if you have any, reblog!
