Can’t go to Interactive Introverts because your parents said no/will say no? This is for you!
Hello everyone, my name is Paige, and I am really freaking good at convincing parents of things. I grew up with two very strict and overprotective (though loving and awesome) parents, and so I’ve had the perfect life experience to give you this advice. Buckle up.
Are you a fan of Dan and Phil, who is super excited about their oncoming tour, Interactive Introverts, but your parents won’t let you go? Here is how to convincethem you should. (Most of these also work for other special trips, such as going to a concert.)
Please reblog this so it can reach all the people who need it :D
1. First, and most important, see yourself as a valuable, likeable and worthwhile person – someone who is worth knowing and loving. If you find that hard, then you are likely believing lies about yourself. (And that may be something you want to explore, and work through with, a counsellor.)
2. Recognise that your thoughts, ideas, views and beliefs are as important as anybody else’s. You are your own person. You are not just a clone of somebody else. What you think is worth hearing – and you don’t have to apologise or change your views in order to please, or be acceptable to, others.
3. Stay away from people who are trying to change you, or who want you to think and act as they do. Don’t allow yourself and your personality to be swamped or dominated by others.
4. Surround with people who encourage you to be yourself, accept you as you are, and bring out the best in you.
5. Resist the urge to emulate or copy people you admire. At the end of the day “they are them and you are you”. That’s the way it should be. Each of us is unique. The world is a richer place by you expressing who you are in your own way.
6. Don’t compare yourself with others. We each have different experiences, and are evolving in our own way, at our own pace. There’s no one formula or recipe for becoming or being. Trust your intuition, and follow your own path.
Hello everyone! As promised, I am here with a new 30-day challenge. It’s focused on introspection and geared towards self-exploration. But wait, there’s more! It’s designed for witches who are just starting out in their exploration of witchcraft.
You can do this challenge regardless of your length of time practicing, but it’s likely to be most useful for people who still feel that they’re just getting started. I wanted to create this so that witches could answer it as they begin their Craft, then (hopefully) look back on it later and see how (and if) things have changed because of their magical work!
it would be really great if those of you doing this would tag the posts with #rootsofcraft so I and other witches can read the responses easily, compare, and learn more about how diverse our community can be. As noted, I designed this to be highly introspective, and I do hope the questions inspire a lot of thought!
In a few days, once I’ve typed it up, I’ll be posting a second challenge, called Fruits of Your Craft, designed for those who consider themselves more experienced witches.
Neither of these are really confined to any skill level or number of years/months spent practicing; it’s just a matter of how you, personally, feel about yourself. Do you feel that you’re beginning, or more experienced? So, feel free to do this, or the next one, based on that rather than the amount of time spent.
Enjoy, and I look forward to reading responses to the questions!

Request: idk if this is astrology related, but can you tell how they’d react when you ask to call them daddy? thank you!
This is totally astrology related! I based this on their sun, mars, lilith/eros and other various aspects. Hope you enjoy~ (Mature content ahead)
Your confession was the turning point for him. Before, he tried so hard be a gentleman and control himself, to not give into your irresistible aura. Now, he could finally unleash the beast he had been caging for far too long.
“Fuck, I thought you’d never ask. Come here princess, Daddy’s gonna make you feel so good.”
Previously, he was surprisingly soft and gentle in bed. He never tried to bring in something new or push you to your limits: as long as you were happy, he was happy. Until now. His wicked side is out to play.
“Daddy? [he chuckles darkly, the dark tone sending chills down your spine] How unoriginal of you. It’s sir to you darling. On your knees. Now.”
This had been on his “to do” list for a long time, so he’s ecstatic when you bring it up first. He can’t agree so easily, though, there has to be some teasing. He wants you to work for it.
“Daddy huh? Wahhh, my baby girl is so much naughtier than I thought. I ought to punish you for hiding this so long. Bend over my lap, sweetheart.”
*already unbuckling his belt*
He hid his kinky side at the beginning of the relationship, fearing it would change your view on the innocent boy he appears to be. When u tell him of your desires, he’s flustered, but so so eager.
“Mmm really princess? When do you want to try it out? Tomorrow? Tonight? Right now? Daddy is always ready for you.”
He doesn’t quite understand at first; thinks the nickname is a bit silly. He’s always willing to please and compromise, but he’s also hooked on the way “Tae!” tumbles out of your mouth in broken whimpers during passionate moments.
“Why though? I think you sound so much prettier moaning out my name, kitten.”
He’s young, inexperienced, and gets a kick from being submissive. Due to that, he’s never really seen himself in the role you want him to play. But like everything he’s faced with, he takes it as a challenge; something new for him to perfect. And trust me, he will.
“Do you know what you’re getting yourself into, baby girl?”
Plot:Maybe asking your Korean teacher for help wasn’t such a bad idea. Good grades weren’t the only thing you were going to achieve from that.
Pairing: Teacher! Jung Hoseok x Student! reader
Warnings:Oral (receiving), Moaning denial, just full-on hardcore Jung Hoseok the sexy beast
Note: This is probably the first time I’m actually posting smut. It took me quite a while to write, considering it was very long, and I need to be in a certain mood for it. Thank you to my friend for giving me this idea. Please forgive me if there are any errors, english isn’t my first language. 3657 Words
P.S.You are 19 in this, and Hoseok is 25. I do not support all that underage sex stuff. Everything here is legal (wrong – please don’t fuck your teacher no matter how hot he is – but legal).
Korean Literature was probably your least favorite subject. You hated just everything about it – well – excluding the teacher. He always greeted you with a smile, asked you if you wanted help. You were the only foreigner in the class, after all. He gave you so much special attention, and you wouldn’t mind it at all. Unfortunately, that didn’t change your view on the subject. No matter how hard you tried, you always got a low grade.
“Okay students, remember we have a test on the new poem this Friday,” His voice echoed through your ears, breaking you out of your trance.
There was a solemn look on your face, while you stared out the window. Your eyes stayed on the uniformed kids flooding out of the school gates, while your nail dug under the staple holding your latest spelling test together.
5 out of 10. It was better than the last one.
No matter how bad it got, you always had this urge to try. You always wanted to keep studying for a higher score, but you just never seemed to understand everything that was thrown at you. It was like everything registered into your brain, but it never stayed – it disappeared, unlike your determination to do well.
As your eyes flickered over to the teacher, a nervous feeling settled in your chest. You now stayed after school for that exact reason. A few days ago, Hoseok had offered to help tutor you for an hour everyday until the test. It had been at least a week since he started, and you could safely say that you were getting better.
Did this movie (Okja) change your point of view about animals?
I found myself so deeply moved watching the final version of the film because of how beautifully director Bong has combined reality and metaphor. It makes me look at every adult differently, makes me look at every child in the journey to adulthood differently and it also makes me look at what we’re doing to animals and to the environment differently. And I think that a movie that can encomps all those things and can change your point of view in that way is truly a successful creative adventure.
Leaving behind the person you love the most was like ripping your heart out of your chest bare handed. When you boarded the plane that took you miles away from Baekhyun’s sleeping figure, you left your heart there beside him, broken and tattered. It was up to him whether he would try to reassemble the pieces, and up to you whether you would want it back. You had both made so many mistakes and waited so long that you were in the worst situation imaginable, and really, you weren’t sure it was possible to pull back from that. You needed to understand yourself again. You needed to choose what you wanted, and so did he.
You would be lying if you said you hadn’t been petrified to find out his answer.
endless list of favourite people ♡ chris evans “I don’t know any form of art or entertainment that can affect people the way movies can. I know it sounds ridiculous, but they can change your world. They can change your views.”
Ending my little hiatus with a wholesome, totally abstract description of each of the types :^)
ENTP: They’re like the breeze of the autumn seasons – always moving along, never hesitating to take anyone willing with them. Those who fail to keep up, fail to understand, they’re all left behind for the autumn breeze has no tolerance for the weak minded.
ENTJ: They are the active volcanoes that we deeply fear. Their sparks, creativity, and glow draws people toward them. At a distance, watching them at their peak is nothing but amazing. However, if you get too close, you might get burnt by their heated passion.
ENFP: They’re like the sunlight in the winter. You seek the warmth of the rays in the freezing temperatures and it feels like you’ve finally felt at peace again when you’re in the sunlight at just the right spot. The world is cold, my friends. Keep an ENFP with you.
ENFJ: Confident that their time will never end sooner than old age, their motivation and energy is like a rushing river. Roaring in the distance, they are irresistible. Whispering after a hard day’s of work, they are calming. However, if stopped, it’s truly a disaster.
ESTP: They’d be the forever travelling clouds, all spread out across the sky. When in doubt, look at the clouds for a hint, a signal. Because no matter when and where, the clouds will always be ahead of you.
ESTJ: They are the old evergreen trees, dedicated to keeping their colour all their life. No matter what time of year it is, the seasons will always see the standing. You can always rely on them to remain graceful.
ESFP: They’d be the fields of wild flowers, filling the horizons with red, blue, and gold. With the winds, they dance endlessly, mesmerising whoever happened to be there. They are variety – always with something beautiful to show.
ESFJ: The seasons treat the leaves harshly, with heavy downpours and burning rays. No matter what, as long as it’s their time, they will always be there to provide shade and shelter. An ESFJ will always be there to save you, even in the most subtle ways.
INTP: They’re like the clear, midnight sky: reserved, tempting, and untouchable. If each star could represent each question and wonder, each planet would represent an answer. The cycle is simply that, and you’ll die waiting for the end.
INFP: They are the seaside at sunset, the moment everyone stays for. They are sweetness, romance, calmness, but also the balance between day and night. They are the ones whose each word is like harmony, bonding people together with beauty.
INTJ: They’d be the glaciers across the seas and arctic. At first cold and aloof, but once you change your view, they create such wonderful scenes. When they find their purpose, they’ll put their entire being into it, even if it pains them in the process.
INFJ: Springtime showers. Their mind will never stop growing, but in the most wondrous way. Gazing into the field of flowers ready to bloom gives off a feeling of delight, however, ‘you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain’.
ISTP: They’re like the natural fires caused by lightning. Independent and slow to surprise, yet once they’ve got something, they’ll make sure everyone’s aware because not even they know exactly what they can do.
ISFP: They are the auroras, waves of indefinite colours soaring throughout the sky. Not everyone has the chance to see their potential, but they will not disappoint. Life’s not complete until you’ve witnessed their unbounded imagination.
ISTJ: They’d be the hollow caves that are full of mystery and thrill. They remain independent, but provide for those brave enough to ask and reward with treasures hidden within them. They’ve endured years of the world – and they will live more.
ISFJ: They’re like the clear springs you’d find out in the middle of nowhere where you’d least expect it. They are the comforter, the provider, and the mother. Without the springs, there’d be chaos in a world meant for order.
You can always continue growing, educating yourself, changing your point of view, being more informed and compassionate on something. If you have a new perspective and you change your mind on something you believed in it’s not a flaw in character but an asset in personal growth.
Honestly if you think shipping sns is a “sin” or that you ship it ONLY for the “hot yaoiz”, you can unfollow me right tf now cause I ain’t for tht narusasu vs sasunaru shit. I’m for tht “my boys are well, happy, healthy and gay”. Their chemistry together is just beautiful and if ur the kind of person just to overlook that and only see the “ooooh the yaoi is so hot!!! I’m going to hell for shipping this sin” then keep tf away from me. Don’t y'all dare fetish gay couples in my hood

When temporary people come into your life allow them to leave as often as they come in. Don’t struggle with making them stay, don’t change yourself, rearrange your views or differ your perspective to make them feel warm. You are not designed for them. People come and go all the time, you cannot fight to keep everyone happy.
