free of worries

Don’t worry. Not ever. Why? Because it never solves anything. It does not change the outcome of what is going to happen, nor does it affect what has already occurred. It only puts more stress on your mind.

Things Overheard in Dorms
  • “That’s the fourth time this week you’ve brought up cannibalizing me. Should I be worried?”
  • “So needless to say, she peed on me.”
  • “Wow, this Heineken has such a smooth finish!”
  • “Do you think I can fit an entire orange in my mouth?”
  • “If I hear someone sing Hamilton in the shower again I’m joining them in their shower so I can drown them.”
  • “Someone just gave me a free cake. Should I be worried?”
  • “How did they manage to get that in BOTH shower stalls!?”
  • “How much caffeine is poisonous? Asking for myself, I’m actually worried.”
  • faintly, as though yelled from in a room down the hall “Can you come hand me my Swiss rolls? My head spins if I sit up.”
  • “Well you see, Marxism is actually” *anguished yelling from multiple people*
  • “Why is Ross sitting in a box in the hallway with a sweatervest draped over his head?” “Stress.”
  • “What’s the difference between an undergraduate research assistant and a random nosy 19 year old? Less than you’d think!”
  • “Let Bob Ross caress your happy little struggles away.”
  • “He talks like he thinks the world is waiting with bated breath to hear what he thinks about Fight Club.”
  • *screaming in harmony with a vacuum*
You’re not going to die. Here’s the white-hot truth: if you go bankrupt, you’ll still be okay. If you lose the gig, the lover, the house, you’ll still be okay. If you sing off-key, get beat by the competition, have your heart shattered, get fired…it’s not going to kill you. Ask anyone who’s been through it.

You don’t have to earn the right to live.

You don’t have to be productive to deserve happiness.

You don’t have to justify the space you take up in the world, the food you eat, the things you need physically or emotionally to keep moving forward another day. You deserve these things just because you are a living, breathing human being.

You don’t have to earn the right to live.

I WAS NEVER A CHILD I WAS NEVER A CHILD I WAS NEVER A CHILD

WHO AM I WHO AM I WHO AM I WHO AM I WHO AM I WHO AM I

I cured myself of shyness when it finally occurred to me that people didn’t think about me half as much as I gave them credit for. The truth was, nobody gave a damn…When I stopped being a prisoner to what I worried was others’ opinions of me, I became more confident and free.

Question

@why-animals-do-the-thing Maybe you’ll have an answer for me . So recently in my town there’s been a lot of worries about coyotes . We’ve always had them it’s a small woodsy town with plenty of prey. If location helps it’s in New England . Recently a new owner took over a farm and started clearing land for more pasture , causing coyotes to relocate closer to neighborhoods . Other than snatching up outdoor cats they really aren’t causing trouble .

A few weeks ago a coyote grabbed someone’s shih tzu in a heavily wooded area . The woman screamed coyote released the dog and ran off . The dog sustained minor injuries but is fine. This has my town and surrounding towns in a panic. There are claims that coyotes will jump 8 foot fences and attack large German shepherds. That no dog is safe offleash in a fenced yard , that they aren’t scared of dogs . That because they will grab a baby cow they aren’t afraid to take on large prey. Yet things like yelling , an air horn, or banging pits together scares them off).

In my experience the coyotes are very opportunistic , and don’t want to put up a big fight to get food. I hear them howling at night and I still put my dogs out (in a fenced in yard , I watch them potty they come back in). Sure if they can they’ll grab a defenseless baby cow but that’s a big difference from jumping into someones yard and trying to fight a large dog to the death. My old dog has run the fence line and sent coyotes running . I know the Aussies will bark if something gets close . Is there really any reason to panic over coyotes ? Do they really want to charge into neighborhoods and take on large dogs ?

[jikook au pt.1] boy meets angel.

[pt.2] - [pt.3]

Park Jimin used to love his job. He loved his job until the day Boss told him that he would have to find another one, ‘cause Jeon Jungkook -  or his job, was destined to die in an accident, and as a guardian angel there was nothing he could do. Guardians couldn’t interfere in the final day, it was destiny, these were the rules.

The thing is, Park Jimin really loves his job. 

Now, he has to deal with the concequences of his actions by living on the ground without his wings. Jungkook was alive, and Jimin paid the price living as a human, ignoring the real words that described him, fallen angel.

-

Jeon Jungkook was a troublemaker. He followed his reckless spirit until the day he suffered an accident and had miraculously survived. Then, in his first year of college his life changed. He had new friends, plus the good and old Taehyung, who followed him like a best friend would. He had new plans. He had settled down. And he had met Park Jimin. 

Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here.
