summary: park jimin is a rich kid.

{rich kid au}

pairing: jimin x reader
word count: 5k
genre: fluff
a/n: this was supposed to be a warm up!! i don’t know what happened!!

You’d be a goddamn liar if you said you didn’t know Park Jimin. Everybody knows Park Jimin, and if they don’t, everybody knows of Park Jimin.

Park Jimin walks around campus like he owns the entire university, hands casually thrown into the pockets of his expensive black pants, sunglasses balancing on top of his intentionally disheveled black hair, silver earrings and studs and rods decorating his earlobes, leather jacket not worn, but strewn over his shoulders, complementing that delicate silver chain around his neck perfectly. Or perhaps, he isn’t wearing a fully black ensemble that likely costs more than your tuition. Maybe he’s a bit more laid back, with an outrageously vibrant sweater, the Gucci logo stamped all over it, blue jeans, ripped at the knee like he had worn right through them. He’s got circular frames surrounding his eyes even though he doesn’t need glasses, a beanie or beret sitting happily on his head if he didn’t have time to put his usual amount of product in his hair, Rolex watch peeking out from the oversized sleeves of his sweater. Park Jimin knows how to wear everything and anything with confidence, flair, so he is hardly difficult to miss.

Haikyuu Hogwarts AU

Here are a bunch of headcannon. Wrote last night for this AU.

- pureblood Gryffindor Bokuto being a part of a mostly Ravenclaw family, who doesn’t understand what why he ended up being so different from them.

- Muggleborn Akaashi who is surprised when this really attractive pureblood starts following him around.

- Slytherin Kenma who is sometimes treated badly by purebloods because he’s halfblooded, yet constantly being stood up for by his childhood friend Kuroo, who is pureblood and is very against the mistreatment of minorities in the magic community.

- half-blood Yamaguchi who was thought to be a Squib in his early childhood, and was often made fun of. It turned out it was just a late bloomer; one day, when he was ten, he sneezed and random objects around him exploded.

- Slytherin pureblood Oikawa, who’s best class is astrology. He likes to sneak up to the astrology tower at night, where he often runs into a certain half-blood with freckles.

- Pureblood Slytherin Kuroo, who is seen as this big scary guy. But really, he’s a sweetheart. If anybody is having trouble with social issues, or is having issues in a class and doesn’t have the confidence to ask a teacher (there are some pretty intimidating Hogwarts teachers) than you can go to him, and he’ll be perfectly happy to help or give advise.

- Gryffindor head boy Daichi, who is very protective of everybody in his house. Do not mess with them or risk being hexed.

- Hufflepuff half blood Suga, who was surprised to become headboy. But he embraces it, and does his best to take care of house.

- Gryffindor Ushijima, who is a formidable beater on the Gryffindor quidditch team.

- Slytherin pureblood Tendou, who’s best class is defense against the dark arts. He intends to one day become an auror.

- Gryffindor Hinata who is loved by everybody in his house due to his innocence and endearing personality, though people from other houses don’t like him.

- muggleborn Kageyama, who knew nothing about Hogwarts before he arrived, but expected to be put in Slytherin. He was shocked when he became a Gryffindor, but ended up getting along with everybody after the initial introductions.

- Hufflepuff Lev who looks up to Slytherin Kuroo and Ravenclaw Yaku, because of their skill on the quidditch pitch.

- Hinata who’s best class is charms. He’s not very good at his other classes, but somehow he manages to get near top marks every year.

- Asahi, the anxious muggleborn Hufflepuff, who is constantly worried that people don’t like him. He’s often followed around by a halfblood Gryffindor Noya, who insists that his vast knowledge of herbology is Amazing.

- Asahi eventually becoming confident in himself as a Wizard, and working towards a job in magical medicine, since he knows that there are many plants that can be used for medicinal purposes, and more hat haven’t been discovered.

- Nishinoya who is Gryffindors seeker, who’s “rolling thunder” move is loved by everybody in the house.

- Ennoshita being Gryffindors quidditch captain. He plays keeper, and is loved by his team.

Class - The Rebirth Of The Cool

What does having class even mean?
Seems like people think it’s about your education, zip code, job title or make/model of their car. I see people that try to come off as having class but will not even acknowledge the janitor that comes into their offices to empty the trash can. That’s snobbery not class. Class is easy to recognize but much harder to define. Similarly, the absence of class is easy to detect.

Definition of classy
a :  elegant, stylish a classy clientele a classy hotel
b :  having or reflecting high standards of personal behavior a classy guy a classy gesture
c :  admirably skillful and graceful 

Class is much more than being born with money or having the money to buy the most expensive clothes. Class and elegance is truly something that comes from within. Something that is priceless. You know when you are in the presence of a “great lady or sophisticated gentleman.” Class in my mind means having a certain knowledge of social grace and proper behavior. A lot of people today don’t follow those kind of old fashioned social norms anymore, and I think that’s why people with class and elegance truly stand out, because they are a bit old-fashioned/ retro.

The epitome of class

Cary Grant

I associate class and elegance to someone who is poised, well mannered/polite and well dressed (not necessarily expensive). Such person usually carries himself or herself with dignity, and their presence is never flashy or over bearing. It’s a kind of inner beauty that transcends social and economic standing. For example, I know plenty of people with no money that possess such qualities and vise versa. I’m more than convinced it’s in the way you were raised and the standards you have set for yourself. It’s a kind savoir-faire, and it’s always evident when such person interacts with others.
The question at the end of the day is, can you be a gentleman without possessing class, or can you have class without being a gentleman? The answer to that question is that you cannot be a gentleman without possessing class. It’s an essential trait which every gentleman has. The term having class is the equivalent to being a gentleman or a lady.

Idris Elba

People with class are…
- … always appropriately dressed for the occasion, it never looks like they tried too hard, and they add to the sense of context of any occasion, almost making any occasion into a festive event, whether going to the open market carrying the proper accessories, going to lunch on the town with friends, teaching in the classroom, or whatever.
- They know how to age gracefully without resorting to drastic measures to change their appearance to appear younger. They just move along naturally with their age and with the times, with the right hairdo, etc. Naturally that means a lot of maintenance, in terms of exercise and diet, but they think they’re worth it, their spouses, friends, colleagues etc are worth it, and that’s their essential mindset.
- They make you glad to be alive and grateful that they add such an aesthetic sense to your daily perceptions, like passing a tree in bloom or sitting in a garden, depending on whether you stand next to them waiting to cross the street or spend an afternoon with them. They just spark a happy feeling in you for just being next to them and inspire you to work on a little self-improvement on your part so you can contribute to others’ pleasure in the same way.

Valentino Garavani & Giancarlo Giammetti

Valentino says, “The importance of fashion is to make one dream a little, to soften one’s imperfections”. I totally agree with that, and a person with elegance and class, I’m truly convinced, is a person who makes you “dream a little”. In the same vein, an elegant person is a graceful person to be around, one who somehow makes your day a happy day after you have left this person. Maya Angelou once said - “People will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Finally, a person with class is one who isn’t scattered, he is focused in a zen kind of way in what is happening now, with you, who does one thing at a time and stays focused. It goes along with the idea of self-discipline and “a mindset” to always be at one’s best, to develop and improve spiritually.
“ My definition of ‘class; is that it is synonymous with 'quality’. It does not mean wealth, birth or position. It does mean that innate sensitivity to other people, that appreciation of the good, the decent and the fair, and that hunger for the beautiful and the appropriate that distinguishes an individual as a person one can be rewarded to know.”

Arrive as a King, leave as a Legend, but be remembered as Gentleman.

Being a CLASS ACT.
C is for calm, courteous and in control
People who have class carry themselves in a certain way. They stay calm under pressure and don’t lose their temper. They are respectful and use good manners. They don’t use crude language or criticise or complain in public. They don’t interrupt others.
L is for living by high standards
Class acts set goals in both their career and personal life. They are not afraid to step out of their comfort zone and push themselves beyond their limits to see how successful they can become.
A is for above it all
Class acts take the high road and refuse to stoop to the level of their adversaries. They don’t have to apologize for their unfortunate words because they know better than to give in to the heat of the moment.
S is for self-respect, and respect for others as well
They don’t gossip or say mean and petty things about others. They take every opportunity to make others feel good about themselves and appreciated.
S is for self-confidence without being arrogant
Class acts understand their abilities and are not afraid to use them. You can develop confidence, just like any muscle or character trait, if you are willing to work hard. Class acts also increase the confidence of others.

Sean Connery

A is for accountability
Class acts take responsibility for their actions and results, whether it’s a success or failure.
C is for compassion
Classy people understand that helping someone up will never pull you down. Compassion is a vital part of class acts. Compassion feels and whispers, "I’ll help.” Class acts really care.
T is for trust
Truthfulness and integrity are the basis for trust. Classy people are trustworthy and understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality. To me the most important five-letter word in business is T-R-U-S-T.

“People want to do business with you or become involved in your sphere of influence. They perceive you as successful and someone who can expand their possibilities. They trust you to act with responsibility, integrity and aplomb. Class acts tend to attract people who are at the top of their game.” That’s true in the game of life or sports. Class athletes have an edge over their opponents. Why? Their poise allows them to concentrate better. They exhibit better confidence to play to their potential. An added plus: Classy athletes usually have the crowd behind them.
So take a close look at your network of friends, co-workers, customers and so on. Are they class acts? Whether you realize it or not, they are a reflection of you. The good news is that you can change.

Make a decision to recreate yourself as a class act and see what kind of people you start attracting. Do fewer things, but do them better. Change your behavior for the better. Raise the quality of your attitude. When you have a higher level of personal standards, you get better treatment from everyone around you. 


How to Boost Self-Confidence

@proanotherworkgress asked: How do you work on having more self-confidence in yourself as a musician and in your work? Basically how do you prevent yourself from selling yourself short?

Confidence is such a huge and delicate part of being a good musician. Without it, plenty of talented individuals with great potential end up dropping their musical dreams, convinced they’re awful. With too much, other musicians sometimes burn bridges or blow auditions because they don’t prepare as they should or act cocky. The trick is to find the balancing point between selling yourself short and pissing off fellow musicians. With that in mind, here are four tips to help boost your own self-confidence!

Write a list of accomplishments. Literally sit down with a piece of paper and a pen, or potentially your computer laptop and a word doc, and write down every single thing you’re proud of doing ever. This can be just musical achievements, or beyond that, depending on where your self-confidence needs work. If you have trouble thinking of things you’re proud of, just start listing concerts you’ve performed. Include Choir concerts, Ensemble concerts, recitals, and anything else that you can think of. Usually, the listel turn out to be much longer than you anticipated. And if you think of anything that you left off, add it to the list later. Whenever you have a day where you just can’t feel good about your abilities, go back and look at this list. You’ve already done a ton of stuff. You have no reason to feel bad about your abilities!

Practice positive self-talk. Sometimes, we are the biggest enemy of our own self-confidence. We can watch someone else perform, and instead of admiring their abilities, we bash ourselves for not being that good. Whenever you notice yourself starting to talk poorly about yourself in your own head, or even out loud, stop. Take a moment and think about whether you would say that about your best friend. If not, stop saying it! You are your own best friend. Compliment yourself when you do something well, and don’t let that mean voice in the back of your head get away with insulting your real best friend - you.

Set goals and work to achieve them. One of the best self confidence boost is reaching a goal you have set for yourself. If you need help deciding what goal to set, compare the list of achievements you just wrote with those of someone in the position you want to reach. Then set out to achieve those things yourself! You can start small, like improving your scales by 10 bpm. Once you’ve achieved that, I promise you that slightly larger goals will seem easier to reach. This snowballs in the more complex your goals and achievements get!

Ask a trusted mentor for an opinion of your skills. Finally, if nothing else above has helped you out, ask your teacher or another trusted mentor to give you an objective view of your skills. Now, you might argue that your teacher or someone you trust old want to hurt your feelings, which is true. However, they will want what is best for your future more than anything. If they don’t think you’re cut out for your goals, they will tell you. Otherwise, they’ll just tell you what you need to do to improve to reach your dreams. Usually, their opinion of your skills is much higher than your own. (I once had a master class that killed my confidence. Smashed it to pieces. Then immediately afterwards, my advisor walks up to me and starts roundly complimenting me on how well I did and how amazing my aria was. Definitely made me feel better.)

Self-confidence is a tricky beast. The best way to get a self confidence boost is to try to be objective about your skills. If, objectively, they aren’t that great, then you can work to improve! It’s really this improvement that is the creator of self-confidence. You’ve got this!

Imagine calling Woozi (and the rest of Seventeen) whenever you start getting nervous because you know their voices and sweet words can help you calm down.

Y/N felt as if someone suctioned the blood from her body with a vaccum. A couple of days before, the teacher had announced they’d be doing an experiment project report working in pairs that was worth 20% of their grade. A couple of minutes before, she announced she would be picking the partners herself. Just a moment before, Y/N’s only friend had been picked as someone else’s partner. F/N looked at her half terrorized, half apologetic, as Y/N breathed heavily expecting the worst… Being one of the smartest students wasn’t easy at all, she spent 90% of her time studying and working, the other 10% divided equally between chores and spending time with her only friend, F/N. Ergo, she didn’t have any time to socialize, and because of that she was nervous right now. Plus, she was somewhat anxious. Finally her name was called.

Even though she was rumored to be evil, she was pretty cool and helped me out with my homework, cracked jokes with me during class and helped me pass the exams. One day the teacher suddenly went on leave and a substitute teacher came in. He was a brilliant chemist, but he began to fail her. After a while of teaching he announced that the old professor has retired and that he’s going to permanently replace him. She was furious. Before the final exam after the last class when everyone else had left, I overheard her arguing with the substitute. He said that he’s had the old professor arrested for fraud. She says flat out that she’s going to poison him with a deadly aluminum compound if he fails her. Not if I can poison you first, he replied with a smirk. They both leave class confident in themselves. I follow the professor and catch him on his walk back home. I warn him that he shouldn’t underestimate her, she’s smarter than he knows. He tells me not to worry since he’s been a teacher for 30 years, that he’s seen everything and he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve. He tells me that he’s been hired by a secret organization to stop her from graduating because she’s apparently so evil. He’s had to deal with evil genius students before as it is his specialty and he’s going to report her tomorrow for a death threat so she faces expulsion. As we get to his porch, I ask him why exactly she is considered evil. He begins to sweat profusely and sits down on the steps. I notice that a black and blue blotch had developed on a swollen part of his neck. She’s already got to me, he says, but tells me that it’s alright because he’s anticipated this and that the potassium in bananas will neutralize the poison. He takes a banana from a tree by the porch and begins eating it. The blotch immediately increases in size and he croaks NO… IT’S AN ISOMER before falling over dead, his face turning black and shriveled, frozen in a horrified expression. I look to the bananas, and upon close inspection they all had small black and blue blotches on them too. A parked car abruptly drove off nearby screeching down the road and I ran home. I could only think of one thing before I woke, who was truly evil here?

It is exam day and my psychology teacher walks in with our tests.

Teacher: Alright class. I’m confident you’ll do well. Just a word of warning… this is a PSYCHOLOGY test.

I had no idea what she was talking about, but I figured I’d find out once the test started.

First couple questions were easy. Then, I started to notice a pattern… they were all the answer “e.” I began to think, “Wait I minute, I must have made a mistake, they can’t ALL be ’e,’ can they?”

I looked up at the teacher. She has a s**t-eating grin on her face.


couldn’t sleep, so i doodled in bed instead. this one came out okay.

today in career prep & presentation (a class required for graduation) we each told the class about one thing no one knew about us. the performance was filmed, critted live, and then critted a second time after watching the recording as a class. even though it’s always really embarrassing to watch footage of your own damn self, i survived, and i’m proud to report that i got a great crit and the class labelled me a confident speaker. i don’t really struggle with stage fright like a lot of other students do, so i like to take advantage of that when i can, and its nice to be praised for it as a skill lmao

anyway, according to the video, my outfit today was bomb dot com and i wanted to brag about it
