glass-half-full

There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty.
The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What’s up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don’t think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass! Who’s been pinching my beer?
—  Terry Pratchett - The Truth
Victor sees the glass as half full, I see it as half empty; that’s why we make a good team. Mila, on the other hand, just drinks right out of the bottle. Georgi wonders why it has to be glass and Yurio usually breaks the glass by putting his feet up on the table.

Staying alive

Ok. I don’t know what to say, I guess I feel conflicted. Cheated. Wronged.
I get it, sometimes when I rush myself into writing a chapter for a fan fiction it turns out to be shit, but this time they didn’t ‘Rush’ themselves. They had 3 fucking years. WE gave them 3 fucking years.
I watched this at night and went to bed feeling sick, disappointed and in a way, heartbroken. I mean I have invested so much time of my life on this show…

But I couldn’t just start hating it, not after 7 years of adoring it…. It doesn’t work like that.

Okay so they made a mistake. Everybody makes mistakes. There are some boring criminal minds episodes, there are some lame NCIS episodes, every single show, ever, has some lame/bad/ shitty episodes. And I get it, Sherlock wasn’t suppose to be one of those shows, but they’re human. It’s like John said in the previous episode “No One Is Untouchable”

For 7 years we have been praising Sherlock as this glorious show, so it’s understandable to be so disappointed, but I don’t think one bad episode is the reason to delete your blog.

Guys this show has brought out so much good in us, because of this show we became
Dreamers, bloggers, artist, writers, readers, song writers, conspirators, we learned how to read between the lines, we learned character development, the importance of friendship, what the fuck “skinny love” is, but most importantly we became a community. It has been a pleasure and honor becoming a soul sister with all of you, Sherlock has brought us together and let me tell you this, Sherlock cannot break us apart. You are the best and the wisest people that I have ever known and no one can convince us that they told us the truth. We all know that’s not how it ended “I know what you can become” Mary knows, WE know. We’ll never see it on screen but GUYS be proud, our fan fictions were right. I mean who here read or wrote a fan fiction about Mary dying and John moving back into Baker Street to raise the baby with Sherlock? I know I did.

Anyway I hope you, my soul sisters, see the point I’m trying to make.
One bad episode doesn’t mean it’s the end.
At least I like to think that way, after all I’m a glass half full type of person.

For me John and Sherlock have always been my inspiration, my muse, my determination. And like they do to one another, I love them. I love you guys too.

We’ve always been Great Sherlock fans, but now we get to be good ones, and understand their mistake. (I know that sounds hard, but it was the only way I could bring myself to peace)

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

Remember to put the glass down.

All Things Considered (a supercat story)

Summary: Having an article she’d written be ripped apart, innocent citizens getting injured during her fight with an attacking alien, and being single on top of that didn’t seem to Kara like it would add up to a successful Valentine’s Day.

Then again, she wound up on a balcony with Cat Grant in Paris, so… all things considered, it seemed like the good might outweigh the bad on this particular holiday.
