charity events

It’s probably because I just did some translation of Yuzuru’s interview back in 2014 today, but for some reason, I was weirdly very touched to know the reason why he chose Kanagawa rink for his skating class and performed ‘Hana ni Nare’ there.

We all know that Yuzuru has a good heart, but I’m still glad to see that since 2014, every year he spends some of his precious time before the season starts to come back to Japan and do charity events to help those affected by disasters and show his gratitude to those supported him. You can watch/read about his activities every year here: 2014 - 2015 - 2016 - 2017

His actions touched my heart in a very personal way as someone who was very concerned about the 2011 Earthquake disaster, and it warms my heart to know that he’s still constantly thinking about those who helped him and those who are still in pain because of those hardships, that his mind hasn’t changed at all since the day he won the Gold medal:

“…During the time I lost my home rink, I could skate thanks to being asked to do ice shows for a few months. At that time,  Arakawa Shizuka, Daisuke Takahashi, Kozuka Takahito, Asada Mao, and many other skaters planned charity events for us, and thanks to that I was able to come back and skate.

I am not a pro, so I think I cannot do much now, but in the future I want to do charity events to thank and show my gratitude in some way, to not only skaters, but also to people who were affected and suffered from the earthquake disaster.

I’m here by myself right here right now.  Though the gold medalist is only one men skater from Japan, but when I got onto the podium, I’m truly happy that I could perform carrying on my back the wishes of Japanese people and those who supports me from around the world. I wonder if I was able to return the favour to them.”

(excerpt from Aoi Hono II)

Au where Jack didn’t go to Samwell and after a few years and a cup with the Falconers he gets traded to a team in Canada, so now he lives around 2-3 hours from his parents.

Meanwhile Bitty graduates and is hired by Alicia Zimmermann to be her assistant, partly because he was a Samwell alumni but also because he was super sweet and brought a pie to the interview.

Bob tried to poach him within a week, but Bitty thought he was only joking. So did a lot of the retired hockey players once they tasted the pies including Mario. Alicia doesn’t allow Bitty alone with Bob or his friends anymore.

Which is why she made Jack promise to stick to him like glue during a charity event she won’t be able to attend, but that Bitty will be at.

“Jack, Eric is the most efficient and pleasant assistant I’ve ever had. He’s also charming, hard working and discreet, and when I had the flu last month he made me go home to rest and brought me chicken soup on his day off. If your dad or his friends try to take him from me again, I can’t be responsibly for my actions.“

This is how Jack somehow ends up playing interference and trying to distract Bitty from talking to anybody at the charity event.

And wow ok this isn’t exactly unpleasant and Bitty is gorgeous and funny, and played hockey.

Bitty is in the middle of trying to explain how increasing his social media would be beneficial, and how he could use his platform for good when Jack sort of blurts out.

"Do you wanna get coffee?”

And Bitty paused, looks at him and smiles, “sure! I’d be happy to go over everything with you again over coffee.”

Jack is too flustered to explain that was a very lame attempt to ask him out, so he goes along with the work orientated coffee situation with the intention of maybe asking him properly afterwards.

Of course, then shenanigans occur where Alicia thinks Jack is now trying to steal Bitty to be his assistant and casually invites herself over for the coffee, so obvs Jack doesn’t ask Bitty then.

“I trusted you,” she says very dramatically when he comes over for dinner that week. “How could you be trying to take my assistant?”

“I am not trying to offer him a job,” Jack groans dramatically, “I’m trying to ask him out!”

Alicia paused, considers this and does a complete 180.

“Jack! This is an amazing idea! I fully support this, oh I can’t believe I crashed your date.”

“It wasn’t a date,” mumbles Jack.

“Ok, we need a plan. You need to woo Eric, he’d be such a wonderful son in law.”

“Maman!”

Meanwhile Bob is quietly watching this whole exchange and making his own plan. He absolutely supports Jack’s interest in Bitty, and Alicia is right he’d be a wonderful son in law.

But also Bob does need an assistant since he can’t seem to keep one for more than 2 months at a time, so he’s now planning to steal Bitty while his wife is distracted playing matchmaker.

Bitty had no idea what’s going on, he just wants to continue working for Alicia since she’s so nice and amazing, save enough money to open his own bakery and try not to let in on the fact he has a massive crush on Jack.

I mean, how unprofessional would dating the boss son would look!?

No, he’s going to keep things strictly professional because that’s who he is, a professional who totally doesn’t have the hots for the son of Alicia Zimmermann.

Jimin - Juno in the 6th house

  • the 6th house is known for ruling work but it also rules our daily routine, habits, and health
  • his future marriage will be with someone he can work well with. not only in a career sense, but also in daily activities and emotionally
  • tending to small things around the house like chores and things that are usually seen as nuisances will strengthen the relationship
  • him and his partner will find joy in washing dishes together, doing laundry, things like that
  • co-operation is essential in the relationship. so is autonomy and freedom
  • work could keep them apart for long periods of time so trust is also key
  • he needs someone he can rely on and who can also rely on him
  • he could be quite literally married to his work, or find love at his workplace 
  • partner will have virgo traits: an intellect, someone who pays attention to detail, someone organized and trustworthy
  • his partner will very likely look after his health a lot
  • exercise or sport may be activities they enjoy together
  • he may want a partner who serves him, someone more submissive
  • or vice versa, his partner may try to make him their servant
  • balance and fairness needs to be kept or else things could go south 
  • where he’ll meet his soulmate: at work, a co-worker or colleague, or at the gym or spa

Taehyung - Juno in the 2nd house

  • the 2nd house rules the income, money, possessions, and also our self-esteem 
  • his marriage will likely increase his sense of self-worth and confidence
  • his partner will be someone who boosts his ego and makes him feel like he could take over the world
  • this could manifest negatively where he marries someone in hopes to increase his self-worth or secure financial security. a common example is marrying into a rich family just for money. this usually doesn’t end well
  • possessiveness could be an issue. seeing his partner as something he “owns”
  • he could avoid divorce/leaving a bad relationship due to fear of losing money 
  • on a more positive note: marriage will most likely be a blessing financially either way. he will amass great wealth with his partner 
  • the relationship will be steady, committed, and solid. almost nothing can sway the strong foundation he will build with his s/o
  • a marriage characterized by luxury: a grande wedding, million dollar home, etc. 
  • showing love through tangible things will be common. this could be gift giving or lots of physical touch
  • partner will have taurus traits: loyal, down to earth, and very sensual 
  • overall i think this is an excellent placement of juno in his capricorn dominant chart
  • where he’ll meet his soulmate: his hometown, an event for the wealthy, the bank

Tater: Don’t bothering me with stupid details, Marty. Have hockey to think about.)

If it weren’t for Louis we’d have gotten three shitty albums of crap pop and then One Direction would have completely burnt out and split up with no chance of getting back together and the world would be like “…. finally.” And then maybe one would have put out a mediocrely received album, and the other three would be guest stars on random game shows and charity events.
That’s what happens to boybands that don’t have a Louis Tomlinson.
