for everything

Other artists: “I have so many brushes in Photoshop! I use this one for clouds, I’ve got this one that does really nice leaves and I have a different one for grass too. This one has just the right texture for doing skin, this one is good for hair, and this one is really good for short fur like on a dog or something. I’ve also seen a really nice brush pack that I am looking forward to trying tonight!”

Me:

Please let’s not remember him for how he died, but for how he lived. Let’s remember him for how he made us laugh with his constant energy and sense of humour. Let’s remember how he gave us so much life with his energy, both one stage and off. Let’s remember him for the comfort in his music, knowing there was someone out there who understood what we were feeling. Let’s remember him for the motivation he gave us in his lyrics to go on, to keep on living. Please let’s remember him for the wonderful person that he was.

RIP Chester Charles Bennington, 1976-2017

There is an ayah in the Qur'an where Allah promises us that if we thank Him then He will surely grant us more. And subhanallah, it’s not just to do with wealth. It’s to do with everything. If Allah has guided you, thank Him. He will keep you steadfast. If He teaches you something new regarding the deen, thank Him and He will increase you in knowledge. If happiness surrounds you, then thank Him. He will give you even more things to be happy about. Just a few moments of pondering over the bounties of Allah can increase our Imaan.

Congratulations to Jacksepticeye

I just wanna a say CONGRATULATIONS to the #1 YouTuber; @therealjacksepticeye!! Seriously though, it’s amazing how far he’s come I such a short period of time. I can’t thank you enough for all the joy that you’ve brought to me personally as well as to the world and the Jacksepticeye community. I can’t express how much of a positive impact you made on my life. You’ve inspired me, made me smile and made me just plain happy every day. My day is spent with a timer that automatically activates every morning that counts down until 5:00 p.m. And 8 p.m. Every day! To be honest, I don’t know what my life would be like without watching your videos everyday. I can’t actually picture it. You’ve made such an impact! Thank you so much for not only making my life better - but for making the world a happier and better place! You deserve every thank you @therealjacksepticeye (1 last time - thank you) :D - Sean Nagle :)

Today in History: June 1st 1926 | Norma Jeane was born.

91 years ago today we gained a flower. And that flower bloomed. It got so big and beautiful; that even when it died. No one forgot it.

❝Always be yourself. Retain individuality; listen to the truest part of yourself. Study if you can. Get a good teacher. Believe in yourself. Have confidence too.❞ ~ To George Barris, 1962.

❝I believe that you shouldn’t do anything in life until you’re ready. Half of life’s heartaches come from decisions that were made in a hurry.❞ ~To Gadsden Times, 1960.

❝I could never pretend something I didn’t feel. I could never make love if I didn’t love. And if I loved, I could no more hide that than the color of my eyes.❞ ~My Story

❝I’m trying to find myself as a person. Sometimes that’s not easy to do. Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselves. But it is something I must do.❞ ~To Allen Levy, Redbook, 1962.

❝Fame will go by, and so long, I’ve had you fame. If it goes by I’ve always known it was a fickle. So at least it’s something I experience. But it’s not where I live.❞ ~To Meryman, 1962.

❝After all, if I can’t be myself, then who can I be I would like to know?❞ ~To Pete Martin, 1956.

❝Starting tomorrow I will take care of myself for that’s all I really have and as I see it now, have ever had.❞ ~Handwritten note

❝I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it.❞ ~My Story

❝Those who know me better, know better.❞ ~To STAG, August 1953.

❝I don’t want to be just a woman alone. I want to belong.❞ ~To PARADE, 1952.

We’ll forever be holding a good thought for you Marilyn. ♡ 

If I could, I would write him a letter. I’d write to him something that would let me tell him how sorry I am for what I did to him, but mostly for what I did to us. I’d tell him that there was never a moment when he wasn’t enough for me, and that he shouldn’t ever let himself think so. I’d tell him that he never failed me, and that instead I failed him. Over and over again. I’d tell him that he shouldn’t have been charged with the weight of two people when he was already so much in one person, and that I truly wouldn’t mind if there were times when he just genuinely hated me. I’d have hated me too. As a matter fact, I really do hate the person I was. I hate how little control I had over myself. I hate how little control I have over myself, right now in this moment and at this time. I hate that I lost him, and I’d tell him that I’ve hated every single day since the moment when I realized that he and I would never be the same ever again. Because I lost something that meant more to me than I’ve been aware of. And even though we can sit beside each other without being as awkward as we used to be, I miss knowing the things that went on in his head. I miss knowing him. But maybe I needed this, you know? Maybe I needed to face all of this so that I could come out a new person. Maybe there will come a day in the future when I can be the person that he makes me want to be. And maybe that’ll be with him. But still…maybe not.

I think you’ve reminded me of who I’m supposed to be. You’ve become the role model I never realized I wanted. Because us girls? We have to work a little harder. And you’ve made it clear that I was born to be someone who can stand on my two feet. You’ve shown me that I don’t need boyish praise or showers of affection to know my worth. And I don’t want it. This is the point in our lives where we work on ourselves. And you and me? We are going to be so beautifully fantastic.
—  @itsfangirlalex; Because we’re amazing.
Thank You

This is probably my sixth or seventh attempt at this, and I’m struggling to find the right words to weave this tapestry of deep gratitude. My first attempt was very emotional and maudlin; the second was too short; third attempt came across as indulgently self-important; the fourth draft made me seem like a total wanker; and the fifth iteration I quit half way through, because (if you can forgive me this moment) it still scares me to come online after everything.
