“The nicest memory I have of him is when we went down to his family’s property in Costa Rica, and we’d eat these mangoes for breakfast. River had them dripping all over him. When he ate, he ate with his hands. For me, he’ll always be that beautiful, drippy mess.”
im starting uni soon too (Ｔ▽Ｔ) im really bad at interacting and getting to know people in general so at my orientation camp i didnt talk to anyone and was by myself the whole time ally do you have any tips for approaching people easily
hmmm….i’m quite a sociable/noisy person irl but i used to be really introverted and awkward too, and what really helped me break out of it was just, the simple belief that everyone is just like me? everyone at orientation camp is confused, new, probably scared and excited! everyone appreciates a new, friendly face, confessing that they’re just as confused and tired as i am! (i practically made friends with everyone in my group over mutual complaining lmfao)
another thinking that helped is repeatedly telling yourself that you’re not someone in the spotlight. you’re just a new random person in someone else’s eyes and have the power to shape a brand new image of yourself right then and there. and how would you like a new friend to approach you? using a very casual approach worked all the time for me at camp!
seeing everyone as potential future friends and thinking up of simple questions like “hey, yknow what the facilitator is saying? didn’t catch it..” (even if you DID hear it) could be the very first step towards making new wonderful ties!
28-30/100 days of productivity
Last three days revolved basically around me writing my essay and sleeping. Also I started annotating my history books so it would be easier for me to write my essay. And honestly I kind of love it and I feel good about the colour coding, but as a book lover at first I felt like I was just destroy it. Anyway, word limit on my essay is killing me and I have no idea how I’m going to fit everything in! Also I’m kind of obsessed with dried mango and that’s all I want to eat right now.
Jungkook is an expert at crashing Jin’s vlives. The moment it started I was like “Jungkook’s gonna show up” and there he was barely saying two words and eating every single thing on the table and all the mangoes
Brandish: I mean… if you gotta. Why do you want to fight her? All she does is eat mangoes. If at all possible, set up a time beforehand and give the address of the nearest florist.
Invel: buddy I know you have a grudge after that Gruvia death match. plus he weighs 120 pounds soaking wet. noodle arms. destroy him.
DiMaria: you’re gonna die because there’s no way in hell DiMaria Chronos Yesta fights fair but if you’re masochistic enough go for it I guess.
Ajeel: dude Ajeel’s only 5′2″, tops, but rage gets hyper-concentrated in the tiny bodies of the vertically challenged. plus he could lift Erza Scarlet, in armor, off the ground, with one fully extended arm. you will lose.
August: why. why would want to beat up Resident Grandpa. why.
Serena: do it for the entertainment value alone. do it. God Bye-Bye to you, but it’ll have been worth it.
Wahl: how far do you think you’re going to get punching a robot? think about it for a second. consider: broken fingers.
Bradman: he’s… intangible? made up of tiny particles that kill you? gajevy is like… in the bottom half of the big 4 anyway. it’s not worth it.
Jacob: he’s a martial arts expert. you’re going to get your ass whipped, but I understand if you need to fight for Lucy’s honor that badly. a worthy cause indeed.
Neinhart: this one is tough just because we haven’t seen enough of him? he’s a smug bastard, so fight him, but know that it could swing either way. from first glance, he doesn’t look like that much of a threat, but he actually has pretty broad shoulders and we have no idea what those weapons on his ship were.
Irene: you’re either gonna be fist fighting a woman with claws for fists or a fucking dragon. there’s no way you can win this. fight her anyway.
Larcade: punch him once for every person that he sexually assaulted in the orgasm chapter (plus an additional five times for Yukino), then find Zeref and punch him twice as many times. find Larcade again. apologize for his shit parent. educate him on sexual harassment because Zeref sure as hell never gave him The Talk. pat him on the head. your work here is done.
I love humid summers and monsoon rains, spending all day in the garden reading poetry and eating mangoes. this summer I want to wear bougainvillea and jasmines in my hair - I want to eat fried plantain, cooked jackfruit. I'm thinking again of wearing my grandmother's silver anklets. at night: singing old songs with my family, dancing alone in my room, reading ondaatje outside. have a lovely summer, Annie <3
Mom got us new horse cubes (they’re cheaper than tort pellets) and these cubes are a different mix. The last cubes were half Timothy hay and half alfalfa. We weren’t big on them, expecially Mango but it was better than nothing. The new cubes are all Timothy and taste way better. We eat all of it every day. Even Mango! So what we’ve learned is that alfalfa is gross. Not celery gross but still gross.
This summer is about……
Kissing and holding hands,
And new lovers
And love beaming from within
And not waiting
And not withholding.
And allowing myself to dream and live in that dream.
This summer is about trying new foods,
And traveling on foot and in cars and in groups.
This summer is about playing like kids.
This summer is about eating icecream and waffle cones and dancing and singing songs really loudly.
And new and old friendships.
This summer is about dream girls.
This summer is about dancing from that healed place.
This summer is about abundance and enjoyment.
And allowing losses to be lost.
Allowing in more sunlight.
Going to places where I can see the stars.
This summer is about frozen fruit and water and kissing at sunrise.
Going on dates.
Eating kiwi and melons and mangos and being all chocolaty and perfect.
This summer is about Goddesses.
Goddesses finding other Goddesses.
It’s about hair being down and out and wild.
Saying Yes to fun and love and adventure.
This summer is about being pretty and feeling Free.
And so it is
Here’s to Summer 2015
We are working backward from the end of The Legend of Korra, pretending we don’t know anything more about
Katara than that she is a waterbender and a member of Team Avatar. At this
point, however, we’ve accompanied Katara through four books of LOK, four comics
series, and two seasons of A:TLA. The progression, or rather, regression, of her
character, is all too clear. We’ve seen Katara’s biggest triumphs and most
cutting remarks; what more could the initial season of A:TLA have to offer?
Hey buddy chum pal amigo you okay I know you'll probably reply with some sort of depressed and overly sarcastic text, but I want you to know that there are some things in this world that are worth living for! :DD Look at the nice, (polluted) air outside! Ain't it all lovely? Ah, another politician being corrupt! Just another normal day!! So let's both be happy in the most wonderful country of all and eat mangoes for the rest of our lives, yeah? P.s I chugged a bottle of mango extract once
