everything is so full of life

we live in a permissive universe, you should strive for pleasures and happiness— but, in order to have a life full of happiness and pleasures, you should avoid dangerous excesses, so everything is prohibited if it is not deprived of its substance

Dear Jack,
Hi I’m kind of crying right now because I’ve realized that you’re the only other person I feel like on this earth who is just like me.

I feel like sometimes I’m the only one whose full of energy at 1am and laughs loudly at everything and shouts and jumps around and is excited endlessly and endlessly and I’ve spent so much time in my life being told to “be quiet” “calm down” and “chill” and I’ve never really fit in because to me that just doesn’t make sense!

Then I started watching your videos. You’re energy full and loud and passionate for the things you love and all of the things I am and people LOVE you for it when I’ve always been hated and made fun of and told off and I swear it’s so amazing. I had been starting to mute that part of myself and I was so depressed, feeling so out of place and rejected just for being myself.

You gave me the strength to be who I am again and be proud of it. I have people who tell me now that my energy brings their energy up and that I give them hope and energy and happiness and that’s what YOU give me.

So thank you. I really hope you get to see this because for me you’re the person who let me now it was okay to be different and okay to be who I am.

I'm bored

Nothing new. Bored at work. Bored of work. Not just cause its work. Cause its a boring fucking job. I literally stand in one place and fold towels and elderly peoples underwear for 8 hours a day.

I don’t hate my job. Its not the worst. And i’m lucky to have it because I know that there are people that wish they did or that really need it. I really need my job. And I keep it because it’s full time and pays my bills and has insurance benefits. But that doesn’t stop me from being bored.

Its a dead end job with no room for growth. This job will not take me anywhere in life. It doesn’t challenge me, intellectually, creatively, there is no passion in what I do.

So what’s keeping me from just dropping everything and leaving and traveling and having fun? Other people do it? Other people are able to just go and drive and travel and see things. And I don’t understand how they manage it. Please someone tell me.


Sorry….needed to get that out of my head

Someone else on tumblr pointed out that PASSENGERS might have been a more meaningful movie if it was about just THE ONE person dealing with being alone on the ship for the rest of their life.  And if, to cope, they go through and make it a point to learn everything they can about all of the other people on the ship.

And I just keep thinking about this idea.

I know I’ve talked about this before, but I’m really sick of seeing writers who should know better say things like, “Tragedy is more compelling than stories where characters have a nice day and nothing bad happens!” without understanding why.

Tragedy is an effective story element when it’s a deviation from the norm. A character’s peaceful existence is disrupted by a catastrophic event that throws everything into chaos. The character now has to either develop so they can cope with the new status quo, or find a way to put things back the way they were. There’s a good story in that.

But when a character’s life is an unrelenting cavalcade of misery, another heaping dose of shit isn’t all that interesting. At that point, a compelling deviation from the norm would be said character having a nice day where nothing bad happens. And modern fiction is chock-full of misery porn, so by this logic, it’s no wonder the coffee shop AU is such a popular fanfiction trope.

Derek Hale getting a dog and putting his life back together is way more interesting than Derek Hale’s life getting worse for the 26th consecutive episode. Creators like to hold up “everything is fine and nobody dies” as a sign that fanfic is bland and badly written, but if anything, it’s an indicator that mainstream fiction is bland and badly written.

the fact that Rory Gilmore is not a journalist kills me

the fact that she ended up the same way like her mother kills me

the fact that she’s pregnant without a job kills me

the fact that she has given up her dreams kills me

the fact that she’s not working with Logan like a Power Couple kills me

that fact that Rory Gilmore might end up living in Stars Hollow without telling Logan about their baby kills me

the fact that this whole revival implies that a 30 year old Logan would do the same choices as a 16 year old Christopher kills me

the fact that in life everything comes full circle, so Like Mother Like Daughter is the most terrible bullshit i’ve ever heard.

Rory Gilmore was destined to do a lot more.

Shout out to baby witches!

baby witches get a lot of shit for not knowing what more experienced witches know and asking “too many” questions, but real talk: whenever I start to feel like my passion for witchcraft is draining I go on a following spree of baby witches. Y’know why? Cuz y’all are so damn full of LIFE. Your passion for magic is almost palpable, you’re desperate to absorb everything you can get yours hands on about the craft. You’re excited and curious and ready to throw yourselves in head first with a shit-eating grin.

I NEED that. I think all of us experienced witches really need to get in touch with that, to remind ourselves how it feels when we first touched witchcraft and felt it touch our souls back. So thanks for being so unapologetic about your newfound love for magic. 

Greek words for love

aka different types of love as presented in Yuri on Ice.


Agape, it is the God-like, self-sacrificing, unconditional love

Agape means to put someone’s happiness before yours.

Agape, it’s Yuuri asking Victor to just stay who he is.

Agape, it’s Victor wishing Yuuri to never retire.

Agape feels like making for someone katsudon pirozhki and like giving your own pirozhki to the person who needs them more at the moment.

When Isabella cheers on JJ after his GPF short program this is what agape is. 


Eros, it is the romantic, sensual, passionate love. 

Eros means to be so full of life and love in someone’s presence.

Eros, it’s Victor asking Yuuri to seduce him with everything he has.

Eros, it’s Yuuri dancing and stealing Victor’s breath away.

Eros feels like always surprising each other and like kissing that one beautiful human being here and now.

When they pair-skating with the person they want to stay close to this is what eros is. 


Philio, it is the love shared between friends and tender affection.

Philio means to enjoy just having tea with someone.

Philio, it’s Yuuri wanting Yuuko to watch the program he prepared.

Philio, it’s Victor and Chris messing around at a pool (in December).

Philio feels like shouting davai! and like showing thumbs up for each other.

When Phichit comes into the room this is what philio is.


Storge, it is the love of belonging, shared among family members.

Storge means to know the home is when this person is.

Storge, it’s Victor hugging specific people when he needs help.

Storge, it’s Yuuri’s family always waiting there for him.

Storge feels like coming home after five years abroad and like eating your favourite homemade dish.

When Yurio clings to his grandfather the moment he sees him this is what storge is.


Inspired by #yoiweek2017 prompt:

January 10 || Day 4: The Inferno

Option C: Anything focusing on emotions.

And I know there is much more examples, just you know, aesthetic. This show is basically called love on ice so… Yeah, there’s much more than this.


Bonus: philautia, it is the narcissistic love, the self-love.

It’s just Chris coming on ice, king JJ theme playing in the background, basically, this is what philautia is, please don’t.

you will have rough days full of sadness… BUT you are so strong and will be able to push through whatever you are going through :))

The TVD finale was perfect, especially the last scene.

When Nina left the show, or even sooner, the story was no longer about a love triangle, it was about these two brothers, Damon and Stefan. They did awful things to each other, and hated each other for years too, but at the end they found peace together. The last scene of TVD could have been Elena and Damon living happily ever after, but we got something better, we got to see the reunion of the two Salvatore brothers in the after life. Damon’s final words to Stefan were his first ones too, so in that moment everything came full circle. At the end of the day it was not about Delena, Stelena or any other romantic ship, it was Defan, and I loved it.

Did you know? When octopuses are caught in the act of moving rocks and destroying the hard work of their aquarists, they drop everything and slowly back away like nothing happened.

Libra Love Matches

Aries: There is disharmony here. Aries shoot from the hip and Libra looks at all sides. There is a need to recognize each other’s gifts. Taurus: Life is to be nurtured, and no one knows this better than these two Venus ruled signs. After all, life is about harmony and balance. They get it! Gemini: There is good understanding between these two air signs. With lots of charm, they work hard to keep the union harmonious. Cancer: These two can either boost or squash each other. They both have a love for culture and beauty and when their worlds align, it can work. Leo: This dynamic duo shine together, particularly on the social scene. They look after each other and can go the full distance with a love forever. Virgo: This union can look good together, but in real life, Virgo’s quest to make Libra a better person can wear thin on Libra’s sensitivity. Virgo needs to understand Libra more, and Libra not to take everything so personally. Libra: A match made in heaven! These two air signs sit on cloud nine. They fall in love with love, and in love with each other. There is no need for anything or anyone else. It’s bliss! Scorpio: There certainly is a curiosity here, but getting them to gel is another thing. Unless they can see their differences as complementary, they make better friends than lovers. Sagittarius: There is a definite attraction with these two signs. But Sagittarius is far more independent in a relationship than Libra would ever hope to be. They do, however, communicate well. Capricorn: When goals are aligned and both working for the same things, this union comes together. Can work with give and take. Aquarius: These two air signs speak the same language. They are natural lovers and team-mates. Pisces: Good friends,these two can fall in love with love. Arm in arm they share life, love and living.

“I’ve had so many lovely messages wishing me a merry Christmas. Thank you! I’ve also heard from people who are going through very tough times. These always seem worse at Christmas. At this time of year, we’re bombarded with images of perfect lives, which bear as little relation to reality as tinsel does to gold. If you’re lucky enough to be with the people you love, warm and safe, with enough to eat, I’m sure you feel as blessed as I do. But if your life is currently full of difficulties; if you aren’t where you want to be, either literally or figuratively, remember that extraordinary transformations are possible. Everything changes. Nothing is forever. Thinking back to my worst Christmas, I found it hard to believe that my unhappiness would pass. I was truly afraid of the future. You never know what the future holds. Astonishing reversals of fortune happen every minute. So if you’re sad, or lonely, or bereaved, or ill, separated from your loved ones or in any other way suffering this Christmas, I send you love and wish you luck and better times. Millions of us have been where you are now. Remember, Christmas Day is, in the end, just a day. It isn’t a test or a scorecard of you or your life, so be kind to yourself. Merry Christmas!” ~JK Rowling’s Christmas message posted on Twitter, December 25th, 2016

honestly if you look at most happy people, you will notice something. they’re not always financially stable. they’re not always fully healthy. they’re not even always “together” or “with it”. but they are full of gratitude. they find joy in life not because of the things they do not or cannot have, but because of the things they do. it’s easy to look at a sliver of someone’s life and say “oh well they’re happy because they’re pretty” or “they’re happy because they don’t have other problems going on” or “they’re definitely happy because they’re rich”. there is a difference between actually recognizing other peoples’ privilege and making assumptions about other people’s lives. 

Nothing is ever going to compare to the feeling opiates give you. Trust me. I’ve tried everything. Uppers, downers, alcohol, so much fucking alcohol. But to not feel anything, mentally or physically, and I mean to be completely numb, that’s something you’re only ever going to get from opiates. And to be honest, I miss being a full blown junkie. I loved it. Almost more than life, maybe that’s why it took over so much. But fuck I miss it. I never felt a god damn thing. And you just can’t compete with that.
We’re Good

Request: You and Shawn are dating, but you don’t like Camila and you get jealous so you’re very lovey dovey whenever Camila is around––happy ending / “How long have you been standing there?”

a/n: thank you all for being so patient with these updates!! I’m really trying my best to crank them out and balance my school life + social life!! You all rock I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!

Your name: submit What is this?

Going to the studio and just sitting in on one of Shawn’s sessions was always one of your favorite things.  You didn’t want to have a career in the entertainment industry, but seeing the process of everything behind making an album captivated you since the first time you saw Shawn recording.

           You sat on the outside of the booth with a table full of snacks that Shawn requested.  Playing on your phone, or scrolling through social media, was what you did while you listened to him.  He was in the middle of recording some vocals for a piano ballad he wrote.  His voice was your favorite thing to listen to and it soothed every part of you.  You couldn’t hear the music he was singing along to, but from hearing the verse he was singing, you knew that this would be your favorite song off his next album.

This changes everything...

Okay so all this time I’ve been…. i adore Victor. I adore how we’ve seen more and more of the real him and how his relationship with Yuuri has grown and how he has found life and joy and love. But the way he was all ‘I am here naked TELLING not asking that I will be your coach’ and full on flirting even in the face of ‘wtf do I do and how do I react aahhhhh!’ from early Yuuri was always a bit odd. And I figured just his persona on overload right? We saw less of that as the series went on and they got to actually know each after all.

BUT, BUT BUT BUTBUTBUT…..

Victor didn’t know that Yuuri didn’t remember that night.

So far as Victor knew, Yuuri had done all those things, been that openly sexual and humped his leg whilst asking Victor to marry him be his coach. So Victor was responding in kind. It isn’t just that Victor had a crush (and it was a crush, not love, they didn’t really know each other yet) as others are saying. It’s that Victor didn’t know Yuuri didn’t remember all those things and so was acting in keeping with them.

Also, this possibly explains why he was so amused by the ‘I find Eros in food because I am incapable of understanding it in any other way’ thing at the start.

  • Me: I hate everything. My life is meaningless and full of sorrow. Our suffering will never end.
  • OTP: "becomes canon"
  • Me: I've seen the light. Everything in my existence makes sense now. Life is full of happiness and wonders. God is real.
