Chakras

Here are some *lengthy* notes from my Grimoire, or Book of Shadows:

Chakras are believed to be the seven main energy points in your body that represent an aspect of your life. When these Chakras are balanced you will feel a sense of happiness, that you are awakened and intuned with things around you, or maybe you will just feel light, like a feather. When left unbalanced, you may feel depressed or burdened. Keeping your Chakras balanced also allows you to have more energy and to enjoy life better.

This Chakra is used for grounding, and represents safety, strength, and your physical need.

The aforementioned companion piece to this little thing. Finally prompted to get off my duff and finish it because of raposaselada’s challenge, though this doesn’t really fit the confines of it. Still, kinda the same vibe, and it sorta matched the other, so I figured I may as well get it done. Hope ya’ll enjoy.

Kakashi wasn’t as furtive as people actually gave him credit for, he just knew when to keep his mouth shut. Likewise, he knew when to pick his battles. Both had proved invaluable navigating his relationship with the pink-haired spitfire currently in the bathroom.

He’d come home from his mission, exhausted and filthy, and wanted nothing more than to just drop into bed. He knew that if he did, however, there would be hell to pay later. Sakura absolutely hated it when he dirtied the sheets like that.

I Am Going To Recap “Bachelor In Paradise” Because I Hate Myself & Romance Is A Lie: The Lineup

I am an intelligent, independent, mostly level-headed feminist woman; therefore I am tempted* to feel deep shame at the fact that the three things that somehow make me crave a relationship most are a. late ‘90s-early ‘00s romantic comedies (usually starring Kate Hudson and/or Freddie Prinze Jr.) b. male-sung country songs about women (tender; non-misogynistic) and c. The Bachelor.

*tempted, but don’t because shame is LAME. Own your Freddie-Prinze-Jr-truth.

For those who haven’t figured it out yet, The Bachelor is COMPLETELY fake. There are numerous articles on the internet from former contestants, producers, and even, now, a scripted sitcom detailing the manipulation that goes into making a dating show - lock a bunch of attractive, unstable people in a house together, deprive them of media, sleep, and human contact, feed them a bunch of alcohol, throw them in a hot tub. For SURE the recipe for finding a soulmate in six weeks (HAS ANYONE EVER FOUND A SOUL MATE IN SIX WEEKS?!) But I am so obsessed. I can’t look away. They’re all so pretty and dumb. And around the fifth cheesy first kiss at sunset at a surprise private concert of an F-list, ABC-affiliated recording artist I start thinking that maybe searching for real love is overrated. Can I really know my soulmate without Hootie & The Blowfish magically appearing at the end of a pier to serenade me? I THINK NOT.

Thankfully, it would seem the trainwreck they call “Bachelor in Paradise” is about to strip any of the remaining veneer off that soulmate facade, and I for one am thrilled. As I understand it, “Bachelor in Paradise” takes all the former F-list rejects of the E-list garbage people previously named Bachelor/ette and throws them on an island to fuck away their sadness. I can’t imagine they are even pretending there is romance involved, nor do I think they could when I am assuming half of the “dates” involve twelve people making out in one for sure STD-infested jacuzzi, but I am POSITIVE at least 3 women will still say they are “honestly here to find their soulmate”. I just feel like a nineteen year old Floridian sorority girl has a better chance at locking down husband material on a Carnival Cruise than a bunch of 24 year old dance instructors do on a TV show.

Needless to say, I can’t wait to dive in. Disclaimer: I have zero idea how “Bachelor in Paradise” works in practice; I also know next to nothing about any of the “contestants”. I looked up their pictures & ages and I saw maybe 5 total minutes of 3 people in the Bachelor/ette episodes I tried to tell myself I was hate-watching multiple seasons ago, but if they weren’t even memorable enough to date the loser who had to know them in person, I certainly don’t remember a thing pink-wine-drunk on my couch. Therefore, the upcoming bios are 100% made up, and still an estimated 84% completely fucking accurate.
