did i do good for once in life


You guys have not seen/heard much from me the past few days. 

I was up late working on Sunday and did not get to swim practice yesterday morning as I was just too tired after only a few hours of sleep.  I planned to swim in the afternoon.  I was up against some tight project deadlines and then life through its (should be expected at this point) curve-balls once again.

My Dad was doing really good and then he woke up yesterday kind of off so my Mom got him into his Dr.  In the process of getting to the Dr’s office in the building he got weak, light headed, starting losing sight.  They checked his blood pressure and it was incredibly low and they thought he may also be dehydrated again.  So they called an ambulance from the Dr’s office and he was taken to yet another hospital (as they go to the one closest to where you are at).  Once there they got him on an IV fluid and within 15-20 mins he perked right back up.  So they admitted him and no;w are working on evaluating his blood pressure meds and a few other things as they think they may now be too a high a dose for him given everything else he has recently gone through.

Since none of this was “planned” I had to head out and watch my sisters kids as she had to work and my Mom was still at the hospital dealing with all of this.  Meanwhile I was still facing a midnight deadline to submit some projects.  So once he was in a room and all set she came home to relieve me but needed me to run my Dad up some supplies (his glasses, contact stuff, phone charger) they normally would have brought with had they known he was going into the hospital.  This hospital is actually on the way to my house (the others are not close to me at all) so that made it an easy stop on my way home.

I spent a few minutes up there - and was happy to see him eating and in good spirits.  And then I headed home.  Finished up my work in the nick of time.  Got in bed and for some reason at about 4am Annie woke me (very unusual) panting to go out.  And from there I had the hardest time falling back asleep.  So I have been dragging today and once again a swim was just not happening.

There is a lot of pink (meaning I did not complete the planned workout/swim - on my tracking schedule in the past few weeks.  I would usually beat myself up about that but with everything going on, something has had to give a little and those early mornings were it.  So I will give myself a bit of grace and know in the big scheme of things it will all level out.  And I am still on plan for where my yards need to be to hit my goal for the year so I am not falling behind there or anything.  My goal for weigh loss - yeah that is a bit of a disaster as I pretty much predicted because I have such a hard time with that.  But I will figure it out.

(Also I was tagged sometime yesterday by the man on a mission @fitness-my-way to stop drop and selfie - so here I am finally getting a chance to relax and catch up on my dash before I crash early tonight, so I can make swim practice in the morning happen)

this is a callout post for beyoncé

how come you recorded the song superpower ft. frank ocean if you hate it so much and you never wanna perform it live? why was it the only song left out of the self-titled album medley at the vmas? how did you even find frank ocean to record it when you did? also how come you pay schoolin life dust? why don’t you appreciate your own art? in addition, is there a reason why you hate i was here? you performed it like once and idg why bc it’s so good? how do you expect to leave your footprints on the sands of time if you never let anyone hear you sing that damn song more than once? and since we’re on the topic of sand, have you heard the song sandcastles? it’s great. you know what you make it better? if you sang it live and i dont wanna offend anyone or anything but resentment/sandcastles mashup should have been on the setlist for fwt and speaking of fwt how come you only performed 7/11 on tour once but you kept on that damn red and white linoleum tile looking ass gucci outfit for half of the american leg of the tour?

INFJs when they are sick

Ni: well….can’t say I didn’t see this one coming…what now?

Fe: complain about being sick!

Ti: how childish


Fe: well that was rude

Ti: Did I ever tell you how much I hate Fe? Can you be rational for once in your life

Ni: let’s focus on getting better and fight about it later…

Ti: sounds good

Fe: ughhhh but I wanna complainnnn

Se: S-H-U-T U-P!

Ni: Fe, make yourself useful and instead of complaining be happy and give the illusion that we feel good. K? Ti, keep Fe in check and make sure she is doing what they are told. Se…just stop talking and go sit in a corner or something…

Most of the amis don’t really know that much about Jehan. At first they figured that it was because he was relatively shy and quiet, eventually he’d open up and they’d learn more about his life as their friendship grew closer.

that’s not quite how it happened.

as time when on, he did get less shy and more talkative. He’s talked about his interests and his causes and what matters to him, of course.

but his responses to questions about his personal life have just gotten more and more bizzare and vague.

My mother is the sea and my father is the sky. They have treated me well: they are very good parents and I love them.

What do I take classes on? Life and love and beauty, of course.

I fell ill as a child once. I believe a vampire must have visited me in my sleep. But I am better now, thank you.

Oh, don’t worry, my leg is fine. My foot caught on a tangible feeling of sadness and despair in the street yesterday and I fell to my knees, but my body is strong and my soul heals fast.

also i started a new song i know for sure i’ll finish 

when i’m supposed to be getting c2p2 and the multi-artist pv done aaaAAAAAAAAA 

sudden inspiration hit tho and i had to Make It Happen before i lost it and it did  happen i got lucky for fucking once in my life!!!!!! like lately the songwriting process has been “write 10 half-finished intros to songs, scrap them all, sit around for a month doing nothing, then finally get something good started” and wow look at me making text posts instead of answering asks okokokokokokok

#20 Blind Date for the prompt :) <3

“Laurel…. I don’t know about this,” she sighed heavily.

“It’s going to be fine, Felicity.”

“I doubt it. I don’t do blind dates. I don’t know this person.”

“He’s Tommy’s friend. I told you that.”

“Oh god, is he just like him?”

“You like Tommy.”

“Okay, but not enough to date him.”

Laurel scoffed.

At this point she felt like Laurel was dragging her towards this blind date. She really didn’t think this was a good idea anymore. Did she ever? Blind dates seemed so…. cliche? She fully expected to see this person once and that was it. Real life wasn’t like the movies. She didn’t think she was going to meet the perfect man and find her happily ever after tonight. No, that was just silly.

“I’ll pick you up and carry you if I have to,” Laurel said, giving a rough tug on her arm.

“Don’t you dare,” she knew full well that Laurel could in fact throw her over her shoulder and carry her, but that was more than just a little embarrassing.

“Just breathe,” she squeezed Felicity’s hand gently this time.

She sucked in a deep breath and let it out slowly.

“You’re going to like him.”

Rolling her eyes, she shook her head, but decided not to complain again. They got closer to the restaurant and noticed Tommy outside. He was talking to a very tall someone. Tall and broad shouldered. Good lord this man was a tree.

“Felicity this is Oliver,” Laurel said when they got closer.

Oliver held his hand out to her.

Her mouth was hanging open slightly and she knew it, but she couldn’t stop herself. Oliver was gorgeous. Stunning blue eyes that reminded her of the ocean, a sharp jawline covered in the perfect amount of scruff, and those lips.

“Gorgeous,” she whispered as she took his hand.

“What?” he blinked a couple times at her.

“What?” she repeated, “I meant you’re gorgeous…. But I didn’t mean to actually say that out loud. Oh my god,” she pulled her hand back and smacked it against her forehead.

Oliver chuckled. “Well, I hope I’m not being too forward by saying you are stunning.”

If Felicity’s cheeks hadn’t already been pink they were now. She giggled nervously, “Thank you.”

He lead her to the table and pulled out the chair for her. They both sat down, not even realizing that their friends had already left. Neither of them would have cared anyway.

I am over you. Or at least I’m trying to convince myself that I am. It’s possible that I still think about you once in a while and wonder why we didn’t work. What did I do wrong? Why can’t you look at me when we’re in the same room? I thought we were becoming good friends. Good friends don’t treat each other like that.

This world is cruel, but his world was worse.

His name was covered in blood and death, cruelties which had sneaked into the minds of people. They were scared of him, feared for their lives whenever he was around.

So he left.

anonymous asked:

Have you noticed Avatar looks much like a young version of Bryke and that is why I believe you wrote The Avatar the way he did I believe it's based on the personal experience he went to when he was in junior high it's just a theory why do you think you make so much fun of Zuko Katara because there was once a good a Katara in his life who chose the date and marry will life type of Zuko character and that is why he makes fun of it because it hurts when he's a mind of his own failures and relations

Yes, I have always had that suspicion. The way the romance was written in Book 3 and the romance in TLOK definitely gave me the impression that they have some unresolved issues with dating, LOL. The way they distorted Aang and Zuko into being the stereotypical “nice guy” and “bad boy” was awful. It is insulting to both Aang and Zuko to distort them into that. Aang comes across as creepy and entitled and Zuko comes across as the insensitive jerk. Katara is reduced to the trophy girl.

Zuko and Katara might have shared some sparks, but sometimes there are people along your “journey of love” who are there to teach you about yourself and what you really need, but don’t necessarily end up being your partner. Come on, kids! “Zutara” never would have lasted! It was just dark and intriguing.

Zuko’s role in Katara’s life was to teach her what she really needed on her journey of love, which was a nice guy like Aang. Very condescending. Just like how Aang’s role in Katara’s life was to be the “guardian angel” to keep her from giving going astray and taking revenge against Yon Rha. Yuck.

Lance Headcanons

Most of these have probably already been stated somewhere, but I thought I’d compile some of my own along with my personal favorites.

  • He can dance. I know this is a fairly common thing and I’m so glad it is but he can dance. And he will try any kind of dance at least once. Ballroom, hip hop, break dancing, ballet- you name it, he’s tried it. And he’s very good at it. (Did you see his hips moving when he did the voltron cheer? The boy can dance)
  • Before joining the Garrison he life-guarded at his local pool. He also volunteered to do it at camps and special community events and he even helped with swim lessons for the local kids every summer. 
  • Has read all of My Immortal. Multiple times. He tried to make Hunk read it but he always got out of it somehow until one night when Hunk was messing with some engineering work when Lance just started reading it out loud. 
  • Which leads into the fact that Lance is fantastic at reading out loud. He gets into it- gives every character their own voice and does motions and everything. He developed this skill because he reads to his younger siblings and cousins and nieces and nephews when he’s at home and it’s a large part of why Hunk didn’t just put in headphones when he realized what Lance was reading to him.
  • The two of them from that day on will randomly quote it when they see fit. “So what did you do then?” “We started Frenching passively.” and “Why did you do such a thing, you mediocre dunces?”
  • Lance keeps his music meticulously organized. His CD’s are alphabetized in their own genre categories and every song on his ipod has the title of the song, band name, and what album it’s from. He has carefully thought out playlists for every occasion he can think of and after joining Voltron when something happens that he has the perfect playlist for but his ipod’s back on Earth he gets seemingly inexplicably frustrated for a few moments before bursting out in a purposely horrid rendition of one of the songs.
  • He would be a really good figure skater what with his fabulous dancing skills if only he could figure out how to balance first. As it is he can’t skate without holding onto the edge or someone else and even then he still falls multiple times.
  • He also knows every lyric to the High School Musical songs. Just the first one and like two songs from the second one because the second movie’s plot made him mad so he didn’t bother with anything outside of “What time is it?” and “I don’t dance” because hey they’re catchy.
  • Keith one day during training for forming mental links makes a comment along the lines of “Lance why do you feel so… wrong?” Hunk groans and it’s the only warning any of them get before Lance yells enthusiastically ”My head’s in the game but my heart’s in the song!!!!”

Um… that’s it for now. I probably have more but this got super song sorry

Raphael deserves more than an apology 2k16,

Raphael Santiago was never in a position where he absolutely had to help the shadowhunters. I want everyone to understand, that there was actually never a point in time, where his helping them was because he was forced or he had no other choice. Raphael never needed to let Simon go. He never needed to save his life thereafter. You could argue he did it to stay on the Nephilim’s good side, because he is smart. But, he had proof that it had been Camille alone who broke the accords repeatedly. He did not necessarily need to do what he did to defend the vampires if he had proof against her, and he certainly was never required to take Simon into his home and teach him how to handle what he’s become.

Once, someone asked me why I love Sam Winchester, why did I consider him my favorite TV character of all time, so I replied with “Because he is so good, right down to his core. Because he is constantly selfless. Because even after the life he’s had and all of the horrible things that have happened to him, he still has the ability to have faith in others. And that ability also shows how strong he is. I love him because he believes it’s not what you are born with but what you do that makes you who you are. You can choose to be better than your situations and experiences (and Sam has steadfastly done this).”

That last bit is especially something that has resonated with me. We all struggle with situations out of our control. Sam reminds me that even when I feel things are out of control, I can still control how I choose to deal with them. You can choose to be better than what you’re handed, and this way of thinking has gotten me through so much. 

This is the power a character like Sam Winchester has, to influence and encourage those who love him. It isn’t just that he’s a compelling and interesting character, but he teaches and sets a standard that inspires. He’s beautiful in every way. We’re so lucky to have him!
