for once in your life be cool

Apple Cider Love Bringing Spell

A very easy potion for welcoming love into your life. This love can be self love, family love, romantic, etc. 

You Will Need:

  • Apples or Apple Cores (fresh)
  • Water (Moon Water is recommended; I used half tap half moon)
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Large pot with lid
  • Strainer of some kind
  • Jar with a lid

Steps:

  1. Take your apples and peel off the skin or if you are using cores left over from apples you used for something else just make sure they are fresh. If you are using full apples cut them in half or fourths.
  2. Place apples/cores into your pot of water. Turn your stove to medium-low and cover pot. Let it simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Lift lid carefully to avoid being burned by steam and add your sugar and cinnamon. Depending on the amount you are making the amounts will vary but I made about 2 jars full myself and added 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 of cinnamon.
  4. Cover again and leave to boil.
  5. Occasionally check on your brew and stir it clockwise. If you are comfortable you may speak to it each time you stir of what sort of love you wish it to bring into your home. After stirring always recover.
  6. Once apples and cores are soft turn off burner and leave it to sit for 10 minutes to cool a bit.
  7. Carefully, using your strainer, pour it into the containers you wish to store it in. If you are not going to drink it all at once be sure to store it in the fridge. you may add sugar or honey to taste if you wish it to be sweeter.
  8. Sit and enjoy your cup of hot cider and focus on how it warms your core and like a light attracting a moth, it will begin to attract love into your life.
Ashley's Alphabetical Prompts

“At least you weren’t stabbed, because hello, I am bleeding.”

“Before you say that, let me pretend to be listening to music.”

“Can I make you stay?”

“Don’t touch that! You never listen!”

“Even I can see that, and I’m blind.”

“For once in your life, can you just not mess this up?”

“Great, fantastic, I’m so amazingly happy.”

“How about we scratch your plan and do this instead?”

“Imagine this, a world where fries fell from the sky. Cool, right?”

“Just kidding, I really don’t care.”

“Kill me, go ahead, don’t be upset if some very bitter people come after you, though.”

“Like, what if I did love you?”

“Man, I’m getting tired of this saving the world bullshit.”

“Nope. That’s a nope from me, goodbye.”

“Oh well, don’t mind me, I’m just enjoying the show.”

“Zebras are such a cool animal, am I right? The stripes are on point.”

Some things they don't tell you about transitioning

• you’ll probably have bad acne. And also get facial hair. these two things together hurt like hell. Shaving is a bitch.
• the farther along you are in your transition, the less safe women will feel around you. Don’t be offended by this. If you’re walking at night, give women that you run across plenty of space. I’m sure you’ve walked by a man at night and clutched your keys a little tighter. Don’t give her a reason to feel scared.
• Carry extra deodorant in your bag. You’ll feel smelly all the time, and even if others don’t notice the smell, it’ll make you feel less anxious knowing you can put some on whenever.
• Your crotch will get more hairy. Like, a lot. If you shave, you’ll have a hard time getting it all. Don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of it.
• Your pee and your crotch in general may change smell and become a lot more pungent. As weird as it is, it’s normal. If it’s painful, see a doctor.
• Your face shape will change. At first, you may feel really ugly. It’s just because you aren’t used to how you look. As it becomes more familiar, you’ll see just how handsome you really are :)
• Some symptoms of T are also symptoms of pregnancy. Use protection during sex and buy a pregnancy test if you’re worried. T isn’t a foolproof pregnancy prevention.
• Some days, shots are harder to do than others. It’s okay. Take your time, and take deep breaths.
• Get used to voice cracks! They’ll happen often, and may be embarrassing, but eventually you won’t even remember that stage of your life. Singing is impossible during the voice crack stage.
• If you haven’t changed your name legally, picking up your prescription may be hard for you. Just imagine you’re picking up someone else’s order. Hundreds of people pick up medication there daily- they won’t remember your name.
• A time will come when strangers begin referring to you as he. It may throw you off. Try to play it cool, and celebrate once they leave
• There will be days where you feel like shit. Try to take a picture of yourself or record your voice pre-T. Seeing how far you’ve come can be a nice pick me up on those rough days.

It’s going to be tough, but you’ve made it this far. I’m so proud of you and what you’ll achieve. You’ve got this :)

ELEMENTAL HOUSE CLEANSE
  • Fire - sit down and relax. Let pure universal energy enter through the top of your head and let it connect with your own life force. Once it’s connected and working together imagine a small flame spreading from the inside of you. It can start anywhere you’d like, the center of your stomach, your head, your palms, your legs, anywhere that feels comfortable. This is not a fire that destroys and burns, this is a pleasant fire that makes you feel loved and warm. Once you’ve set yourself on fire, once you’ve felt the flame all around and inside your body, slowly let it spread on the inside of your house. This can be done with a slow small flame, or a violent huge one. Just let everything burn, imagine the fires cleansing properties burning away all the nastiness inside your house. Imagine ashes flying everywhere, and all the negativity burning away into nothingness once it’s been touched by the flames.
  • Water - sit down and relax. Let pure universal energy enter through the top of your head and let it connect with your own life force. Once it’s connected and working together imagine yourself as a fluid body. See and feel the cool refreshing touch of water on your body. Feel the fluidity inside yourself. Then imagine huge water, huge waves, flooding your house, pushing everything it comes in contact with. Let it mess up your house. See this water, running from one door to another, flooding everything, and destroying everything just like a tsunami would. Imagine this pure, clean and clear water gathering all the negativity in itself, taking it away with her. When you’re done, imagine one window or more, or a door open in your house and let the water go away.
  • Earth -  sit down and relax. Let pure universal energy enter through the top of your head and let it connect with your own life force. Once it’s connected and working together imagine huge roots bursting through your floor, intertwining all around your body. Once they’ve intertwined imagine them giving birth to flowers while all around you. Imagine these intertwined roots going all around the walls, the windows, your mirrors, your table, your bed. Imagine beautiful moist soil pouring out of the holes left by the roots. Imagine this soil filling up your house, gathering in itself all that is no longer needed and negative. Imagine transforming that negativity into something beautiful. Imagine the poisonous bad energies transforming into love and light inside the earth. Once they’ve transformed imagine this earth giving birth to more beautiful light green roots, leaves, and the most beautiful flowers you’ve ever seen. Let your whole house fill up with these beautiful flowers and roots, replenishing everything in your house. Feel the flowery scent all around you. When you’re done imagine all these roots and earth slowly going back into the whole where they came from, leaving everything intact but cleansed and fresh.
  • Air -  sit down and relax. Let pure universal energy enter through the top of your head and let it connect with your own life force. Once it’s connected and working together imagine violent winds forcing their way in your house through the window. Imagine these winds entering and bursting through like a hurricane through your house. Even though they are violent, they are here to help and leave everything in a better place.They’re coming straight for you. They start whirling around you, you can feel it’s pleasant coolness on your skin. You can hear the sounds of the wind. They are so strong, yet so caring and pleasant. As they whirl harder and stronger around you, they lift you up in the air, whirling even harder than before. Now, imagine them turning to the rest of your house. Imagine them leaving a mess wherever they touch. All of your notebooks are in the air, your tarot cards are flying everywhere, your clothes go all around the place, your crystals fly from one wall to another. Let these fresh and cool winds clean your place. Once you’re done, imagine these winds leaving through the window they came from.
Melody.

The silence only lasts for a moment. It’s brief, and it’s fleeting, just like your love seems to be.

Jinyoung’s looking at you, you can tell; you don’t need to look at him to know it, since you can feel his heavy gaze resting just between your shoulders, under your neck. The air is cold, just like your heart, and when you finally turn around, to meet his eyes, the gale stops too, as though it knows. Your head is empty, no soft music murmuring into it, and when you look at him, you can tell from the hollowness of his eyes that his is too.

“I guess…” You speak first, softly, fists clenching, “I guess this is where it ends?”

“It doesn’t have to.” He answers, just as quiet, though his stance speaks volumes, “We can still try.”

“It doesn’t work that way.” You cross your arms, head still ringing from the silence, and it’s tough trying to stop your eyes from stinging, “You…You know that as well as I do.”

“Soulmates aren’t everything, Y/N.” Jinyoung asserts, looking at you with his eyes crinkled, not in joy, but in solemnity, “Just because you don’t hear anything doesn’t mean you can’t feel it.”

“You found your soulmate though,” Your words are flat, dead, “I have no place in your life anymore Jinyoung, and I think…I think we both need to accept this.”

You hold up your wrist, showing him the faded mark.

“My soulmate’s dead. There’s no way to turn that around, and I’m okay. But you’re not,” You gesture helplessly at his wrist, where an intricate pattern of flowers blooms beautifully, rich with its pink hues, “You still have someone out there waiting for you, crossing their fingers to find their soulmate, so you can’t leave them all by themselves.”

The tears finally spill out as you take his hands—his warm hands—in yours, smiling up at him through blurry vision.

“Y/N—” He breathes out, his own eyes glistening, and you shush him, reaching up to card a hand through his hair.

“Always remember,” You say gently, voice shaking, before you lean up to press your trembling lips against his, letting the tears slip freely, “That I love you.”

He looks at you once, before his arms come to wrap around you, and you let him.

This is a goodbye, after all.

Advice For The Signs

@ TheSignsAs || IG

Aries - Admitting that you care about someone isn’t weakness.
Taurus - Everybody is not your friend.
Gemini - It’s cool to ignore social norms, but don’t make fun of people who DO abide by these social norms.
Cancer - Remember the things that you’re good at, even when it seems like your life is falling apart.
Leo - A few close friends are better than a huge group that doesn’t care about you.
Virgo - It’s okay to take a study break every once in a while.
Libra - Appreciate the people that have helped you in the past.
Scorpio - Stop leading people on and making them feel special when you’re just gonna leave them.
Sagittarius - You need to know when to tone down the sarcasm, sometimes it’s inappropriate and hurts people’s feelings.
Capricorn - You won’t ever be happy if you continue to compare yourself to others.
Aquarius - Don’t change yourself for your crush.
Pisces - You’re special whether the people around you recognize it or not.

Yeah, having a boyfriend is cool but so is singing to your favourite song in the shower and licking cake batter off of spoons and feeling the warm sand between your toes at the beach and buying your friends flowers on their birthdays.

Yeah, having a girlfriend is cool but so is acing that one test you studied so hard for and smiling at strangers and giving money to the homeless girl you see on your way to work every day and falling asleep to the sound of rain.

Yeah, being popular is cool but so is laughing with your brother until your stomach hurts and seeing your sister smile after you tell her she looks beautiful and hugging your parents once they get home at the end of the day.

Yeah, aiming to be loved by people is cool but don’t let it get in the way of life. Don’t forget to live.

The Art of Remembering // Spencer Reid x Reader

Prompt: Reader is left without her memories after surviving a car accident involving an unsub.

Spencer could hear himself scream your name as he watched the scene unfold.

It was difficult to see. He watched the unsub’s car, the one with you inside of it- tied up with rope that dug into your skin and tape across your mouth that muffled your screams. He saw it hit the wall. He wasn’t sure if the unsub had lost control or whether he had done it on purpose, choosing to end his life instead of facing the consequences that came with being caught. All he knew was that his heart stopped beating the moment the car crashed into the building and sent you flying through the broken windows and onto the hard pavement.

He was sure you were dead. Your body laid limp amongst the shattered glass on the floor. Blood was seeping from the back of your head and he could feel his heart being torn as he ran towards you, his eyesight blurred at the tears that instantly filled his eyes.

It was all a blur. He remembered bits and pieces. The harsh flashing lights of the ambulance. The blinding white walls of the hospital. The hard seats of the waiting room. The feeling that overwhelmed him when the doctor came in to announce what had been your fate. He remembered the sense of relief when he said you had made it.

His heart didn’t truly shatter until he was allowed to see you. You were finally awake and he was ecstatic as he rushed in to wrap his arms around you. What he didn’t expect was the way your body froze in a mixture of alarm and confusion. He pulled away and he immediately saw it in your eyes. You didn’t remember him.

The cool summer nights were one of your favorite things about life at the moment. You made it a habit to come to this park and sit on the swing, sketching a picture out in the dim lighting of the moon. 

It calmed you, being able to watch people as dusk fell over the park and they began packing their things to go home. Soon enough, you were alone in the park and added shading to a drawing of the worn down park bench across from you that you had started a couple days ago. 

The chains that held the swing up creaked while your legs pushed your body back and forth, swaying softly with the wind. 

You heard rushed footsteps, causing you to slam your sketchbook closed and turn your attention to the sidewalk in front of you. 

Your heart was in your throat, suddenly aware of the creepy situation ahead of you. 

The footsteps walked in front of you, tripping over the raised concrete on the sidewalk. You held back a giggle, immediately stepping off the swing set and rushing to the person. 

“Are you okay?” You said, putting your hand on the stranger’s arm while they groaned in pain.

Sweetest Thing

Pairing: Finn Balor (Fergal Devitt) x Reader 

A/N; If Finn Balor told me he wanted to punch me in the face, I would ask if he wanted to hit my left cheek or right

Summary: Finn Balor thinks you are just the sweetest thing. So much so that all he wants to do is drag you through a crowded room with his arm around your waist and a shit eating grin that tells everyone that you are only his to stare at. 

***********************************************************

“Ouch! Seriously Y/N, I’m not a damn voodoo doll”. 

“Piss off Lexi, you wiggle too much. Not my fault”, you grumble out with a mouth full of pins and a roll of your eyes. 

Alexa lowers her eyes and frowns as she watches you kneel in front of her, trying your best to hem the shit out of the gown that was obviously too long for her tiny stature. Between the two of you, it was no secret that Alexa Bliss was the hardest to dress for formal WWE events, but at the end of the day, as the stylist to the superstars, you had always found a way to make her shine. With that in mind, she should have been more appreciative about your grueling attempt to make the gown for this particular charity event fit. 

Everyone was going to be there tonight. It was a gala for one of the many charities the WWE sponsored which meant the most notable stars from both NXT and WWE needed to make an appearance. Now, as the head of the clothing and costume department, that meant that you and your team were in charge of making everyone dress like royalty. Particularly for you, that meant fitting and styling the best of the best.

BTS Reaction #1- Ideal Types/What type of Couple You’ll Be

Note- Just a quick description in what I think the members would like and dislike in a partner and what kind of relationship I see them being in.


NAMJOON- Our leader is very smart and open minded.  We already know that he scored very well at tests during school, so I think he would need someone who is equally intelligent (not to say that he would ever talk down on someone for lacking the same smarts) and someone who is very passionate about social and political issues.  Namjoon has been outspoken enough to state his beliefs and I honestly think he would have a very hard time being in a romantic relationship with a conservative.  He agrees that everyone has the right to their own view points however he would need a partner who supports his views and in a way advocates the ideas along with him.  Namjoon is a virgo which means he can be a little bit of a perfectionist in every aspect of his life.  I think he will have high standards for the person he will want to settle down with.  Not superficial standards, but rather standards about intelligence and his partner’s sense of character.  This means you will have to stand up for what you believe in and be able to hold your own when it comes to a battle of wits in order to capture his attention. 

  Namjoon and his partner would be the couple that always has a project they’re working on.  I can see them always travelling to their next big adventure, however Namjoon and you would participate in things like charities or protests in an effort to make your guys’ mark in the world.  Indeed, you guys are a revolutionary couple.

JIN-  Jin is very sweet and I expect nothing less from his partner.  More kind-hearted than most, Jin would not be able to put up with someone who speaks rudely and shows little respect to others around them.  Being like a caregiver of sorts to his members, their opinion on his lover would matter a lot to him.  Also, Jin has talked about his ideal type and it seems like he knows what he wants.  Unlike Namjoon or Yoongi, I think he will end up with a traditional Korean girl.  Not to say that he doesn’t like foreigners, but I just think a person who has more background in his culture would be very important to him.  I see his partner being very pretty (I think looks matter to him.) and a very domestic, stay at home, ‘wifey’ type.  As a foodie, he would enjoy it very much if you were a good cook.  It would be nice for him to take a break from cooking for others and let you treat him for once.  As the role of a hyung who is always looking after others, Jin would look forward coming home to you to be taken care of.  Confiding in his partner about his stress would be your guy’s biggest bonding moments, as he spends so much time worrying about others, it’s easy to overlook his own needs and concerns.

  You guys are the classic ‘mom and dad’ couple.  You’ve been together since the beginning of time and whenever anyone in your group of friends has love trouble, they reach out to you two, since you guys never fight and are so patient with each other.  You two tend to stay home rather than go out, since the silence is something you two have learned to enjoy in the absence of the six rowdy members.  Inside jokes, bets about your friends, binge watching tv shows, cooking meals together and going to bed early to have brunch tomorrow, you guys are basically like Lilly and Marshall from how I met your mother.

YOONGI-  Yoongi expressed before that he doesn’t judge people by the way they look and the love of his life will be no different.  This means your personality matters most in the relationship.  Yoongi is passionate and hardworking about his music.  Even though he gets a reputation for sleeping all the time, the truth is that no one puts as much thought into BTS’s music more than Yoongi.  Due to this, I think it will be hard for him to fall for someone who isn’t passionate about some type of art.  Whether it be music, writing, theatre or drawing.  Creative minds stick together.  Quiet by nature, I think he would be grateful if you were also soft-spoken.  Someone who is low-maintenance would be required, as Yoongi would be more interested in staying home and spending quality with you than actually going out.  You guys would have very deep talks about yourselves and reach a level of comfortability and trust among you two that most couples don’t even have.  Once you actually get to know him, you’ll realize that he is an actual teddy bear and cuddling would ensue.  Yes, you heard me.  Yoongi is a cuddler.  I think Yoongi likes foreigners very much, I’m sure he is attracted to exotic girls.  Image doesn’t matter, but a cool foreigner wouldn’t discourage him at all. Yoongi would need someone who is as creative as him and loyal.  Someone loud and boring would turn him off completely.  

  You two are the couple that are completely unconcerned with anyone but each other.  Aiding each other in your guys’ creative process has become a daily life for both of you.  You two have a small circle, and most the time you just stay home to continue wrapping yourselves up in one another.  Outsiders don’t get how two young people can be so anti-social and kept in their house for so long. but you two don’t care because you created a safe haven of sorts in your home where your love and minds blossomed.

Hi Cassie! There's something that's always bothered me about Jace. In COB after Jace brought Clary to the institute and she was unconscious for 3 days he didn't visit her once and yet in COG he said that after he saw her he couldn't stop thinking about her and how he forced Hodge to be the one who brought her to the institute. So my question is: if he wanted to be around her so much than why hadnt he come to visit? Thank you for answering and for your books. They've changed my life. :)

That’s precisely why he didn’t visit her. He had feelings about her already and it threw him. He didn’t like feeling vulnerable. Jace staying cool, calm and collected, always a little amused and distant, is part of his survival strategy. Like Alec (they’re not always so different) he’s intensely private, not prone to histrionics, and doesn’t always show what he feels most strongly. The last thing he wants is to deal with unexpected vulnerability about a complete stranger. Staying away actually shows how strongly he felt a lot more than hovering around curiously would have. 

You’re beautiful

Request: Can i request a sis fic? Maybe something that the Reader is really insecure about her body and has a really tough time.(She’s 14/15)and her brothers do anything to help her? Idk.Its a hard idea.If it’s okay to do it it would be amazing.Ly Kay❤       

A/N: 5 months later I write it….thanks for your patience! I kinda made it so that the reader wasn’t too happy with her body & was having some mental insecurities as well, hope you don’t mind, it just sorta happened. The reader can be really age cause we all have body insecurities no matter what age we are, even though we’re all perfection, we all need a reminder sometimes.

A/N Part Two: This fic was hard to write, mainly because my brain didn’t wanna function while writing it. In the end it felt like pulling teeth but I wanted to finish it because I’ve been taking wayyyyy too long on requests.

A/N Part Three: I lied, I actually kinda love it now that I edited it.

You were playfully singing along with the song as you finished drying off, however when a certain verse started to play you couldn’t help the sadness that overtook you.

Standing at the sink not looking in the mirror,

Don’t know where I am or how I got here.

You zoned out after that part, because you realized it was true.

Lately you could never look at yourself in the mirror.

You hated what was looking back at you.

Okay

I hate seeing those “if you can be transgender, why can’t you be transracial” so here are my thoughts on that in case your really looking for an answer and not just being a huge dick.

Anyway, onto it.

Race is not fluid- it is not changeable.  

Being a member certain race means that from the moment you are born you are put in either a position of social privilege or disadvantage.  Those born into disadvantage have developed their own means of survival, their own ways to keep pushing through a world that hates them, and though it may manifest in different ways, our shared history of oppression makes many of our characteristics similar and easy to (mistakenly)stereotype. Not the same by any stretch of the imagination, mind you, but it allows us to understand each other on a more personal level, even from a far.

You don’t ‘transition races’ because you are truly of that race- you ‘become’ black because you see the amazing community that has been created by those in a position of near powerlessness.  You have seen the incredible things that black people can do, that have produced- you see the creativity that they are endowed with, and you say, ‘I want that’.

You want the privileges of being black, without ever fighting for them- you want to reap something you never sowed.

Moreover, you base your idea of race on a horrifically static group of stereotypes and try to imitate them, not realizing that these things that have been deemed the norm for the black community come from years of living a certain way, and, even so, is not shared by the entire race.  For instance, you decide to speak using AAVE because it’s cool- not because it is your language.  You try to mimic our anger- when you have never understood the pain it is borne of.  You enter our spaces because you like the way they look from the outside- not because you have nowhere else to go.  

You want to be us, without ever being able to understand why we are us.

In other words, you are no better than a living, breathing, racist caricature that doesn’t respect the black community enough to realize you are not a part of it. 

Do I even need to mention that white people would never allow black people to be considered white because their rampant anti-blackness barely allows them to accept a black person in their spaces, let alone ‘be’ them, or can we move on?  

Great.  Moving the fuck on then.

Gender, on the other hand is incredibly fluid and personal.

You do not decide to ‘be’ transgender because you want to wear a dress, or pants(because, heads up, clothes are not explicitly gendered).  You don’t ‘become’ transgender because you desperately want to be a full time parent or an engineer, because once again, for those in the cheap seats, that shit has nothing to do with gender.  

You have, at some point in your life, realized that you are not defined by your genitals/chromosomes/secondary sex characteristics, and despite all odds, you are not as you have previously been defined.   It is not because of the traits you find cool and interesting in the other gender, it is because you have found the traits within yourself that make you a woman or man(or non- binary). You are willing to endure hell on earth to become who you truly are, and accept the social stigma and consequences that comes with that. You are not an outsider looking in and jealously admiring what others have worked so hard to have, you are an insider who has been wrongly labeled.

It is not about changing your image, it is about you becoming your image.

You are not trying to ‘invade’ brother or sisterhood, you just want to be who you are, and you deserve the support of every person alive in that endeavor.  

So before you decide to open your fucking mouth and say some dumb shit, including but not limited to ‘being transgender and transracial are the same’ remember to not ever belittle the need to be by comparing it to the desire to take.

BTS reactions to their gf being a gym rat/fitness junkie

Requested by anon 

A/N: I’m writing these more like short scenarios but idk it’s fun. -amelia

Seokjin:

Your gym fever, loves it. Goes with you. Gym dates. Spots you. Is the funniest person to work out with. Makes faces at you from across the room. Everyone at the gym ships you. Is a little disappointed that you don’t do more mundane things with him but you teach him some healthy recipes and he’s just having a blast.

Goes with you when he’s got the time. Likes seeing you in your element. Purposely warms up with squats so everyone can see the bootae. 99% of the time he’s just 👀 @ you. Thinks your super cool for doing what your doing. He doesn’t have the strength to go everyday, with practice also tiring him out.

Jungkook:

Brags about you to everyone he knows… even people who go to the same gym as you… One ups you at everything and feels so good. Helps you out a lot and does some pretty romantic things. Likes how you smell after you shower. Tried to get you to go out after your workout.

Warnings: Grinding (dancing), spanking, penetrative sex, orgasm denial. Yup.
Author’s Note: I’m sorry for being so MIA lately. School is killing me. BUT, here’s angry Bucky smut for your Friday night ;)

When it comes to Bucky, you’ve never met anyone who can crawl under your skin like an annoying insect, while at the same time, makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. Bucky makes you feel like you’re only thing that matters. The thing is, though, it’s not like you’re dating. The both of you just spend so much time together that it ends up being more beneficial than not. The second your skin collides with his, fireworks go off in every direction and the two of you go at it for hours.

the romantic’s guide to earth.

A playlist for young people coming of age, bewildered time travelers, benevolent aliens*, and other new arrivals to human civilization.

1. “Gosh,” by Jamie xx — The calm before the storm. The 2016 edition of human civilization is awe-inspiring in all the right and wrong ways.

2. “B.O.B.” by OutKast — *Here’s* the storm. The things that make the world beautiful and interesting are usually the same things that make it chaotic and terrifying. If you learn how to ride the lightning, though, even the apocalypse can be an excuse to party.

3. “Cold War,” by Janelle Monáe — The world is 95% horrible and does not have your best interests at heart. Be one of the good guys. Try to make it better.

4. “Common People,” by Pulp — To reiterate: there are people out there who aren’t exactly like you, and they deserve your respect. Don’t be an asshole.

5. “Temptation,” by New Order — Once you’ve got your feet back under you, you get another opportunity to marvel at just how intoxicating the world (and everything in it) really is.

6. “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” by Whitney Houston — Now that you’re excited about everything, you want so badly to share it with somebody. Whitney Houston gets you.

7. “I Feel Love,” by Donna Summer — Hey! You get to dance with somebody!!!

8. “When Doves Cry,” by Prince — It turns out relationships can be complicated!!!! )-:

9. “Running Up That Hill,” by Kate Bush — You’re starting to learn that there are a lot of flipsides in life. For one, the infinite variety that makes people fascinating also makes it so that you’ll never totally understand anyone else, even someone you love. *Especially* someone you love. And no matter how much you want them to feel the way you do, no amount of hoping can guarantee that they will.

10. “Bad Religion,” by Frank Ocean — Aw, bud.

11. “Sloop John B,” by the Beach Boys — Sometimes you just want to go home. This is especially true after the world’s ripped your heart out and hired Michael Flatley, Lord of the Dance, to riverdance on it.

12. “Everybody Plays the Fool,” by the Main Ingredient — You don’t completely understand other people, and they don’t completely understand you, but one thing everyone knows is how it feels to get your heart broken. Understanding that other people survived is your first step to getting up and over it.

13. “Untitled,” by R.E.M. — The next step? Looking out your window and realizing that the (beautiful, horrible) world didn’t end. And that maybe, just maybe, there are people out there who’ll love you and care about you no matter what.

14. “All My Friends,” by LCD Soundsystem — One of the things you’ll learn from your hard times is that you don’t have to go through them alone and never did. Good friends will save your life.

15. “Born to Run,” by Bruce Springsteen — Thanks to people who care about you, you’ll know by now that it’s risky to hope and riskier not to.

16. “Sally MacLennane,” by the Pogues — Being part of the world means you’re gonna lose a lot of people and things who are important to you along the way. Learn how to say goodbye.

17. “Favorite Thing,” by The Replacements — In a cruel world, love is an act of rebellion. Caring is cool. Being in love is cool.

18. “OK Pal,” by M83 — Being in love is really cool.

19. “You Send Me,” by Sam Cooke — It turns out relationships don’t have to be complicated!!!!

20. “Waterloo Sunset,” by the Kinks — Maybe for the first time, your sense of wonder extends to your everyday life. You’ll learn how to be kinder to other people, to appreciate the parts of them that are arbitrary and essential, and to be grateful for them.

21. “Once in a Lifetime,” by Talking Heads — The most important thing to remember is to stay awake. It could all end at any moment, and you don’t get any do-overs. Savor all of it. [Time travelers can disregard.]

22. “The Obvious Child,” by Paul Simon — You’ll grow up risking everything just by taking part in the world. You’ll win and you’ll lose, and as hard as growing older is, it’ll also give you the perspective you need to sift through the bullshit and the joy you need to heal. The world won’t be the same as it was when you first got here. It’ll be richer for everything you and your memories have added to it.
