anybody else feel like an absurd amount of foreboding for 2018 like 2016 sucked my soul out 2017 put my corpse into a really fast car i couldn’t control and i feel like 2018 is The Arrival At The Gates Of Satan
Okay but the way she is interacting with Max Martin and Shellback is EVERYTHING. She isn’t sitting there letting them build a song around her. She has the ideas, she has the bridges and the hooks. She stands there like a boss and takes control. Like, she is fully radiating confidence and poise and self-assurety. They work together, they respect her, and it’s truly collaborative. But what’s more, it’s clearly her song, her voice, her ideas.
So if ONE MORE PERSON comes at me saying she’s just a cog in their pop machine I swear to god I will throw my computer at them with just this “making of” on repeat so they can learn through osmosis.
yo I feel like including loki in thor: ragnarok as neither a hero nor a villain was marvel’s way of saying “we know you still love this psycho after all that he’s done, so let’s ease your conscience a bit with this movie” and I really appreciated that
hey i just wanted to say that if you’re already scraping by to make ends meet, the holidays are really hard. and that puts pressure on you and on your whole family. and if there’s one thing i hope you know it’s that you don’t need to prove you love someone by buying them something. i know we all want to get the people we care about really fancy things. but i’m okay if you get me like a smooth rock you found by the ocean. i know it’s true of other people, too. i’d rather you hand me a diy picture frame from popsicle sticks than something you had to go into debt to buy, and i think any person who’s worth their socks will tell you the same thing. and on that note? everybody loves socks, and they’re pretty cheap. yes, it’d be great if you and i stumbled on enough money to actually afford things. but love, i’ve learned, isn’t about the buying.
and on that note? for those of you out there who find the holidays a particularly dark time… i hope you know there will always be someone willing to open the door for you. even when it feels like there’s no one. even if that door is a window you have to crawl through.
and for those of us who have more than we need, i hope we open those doors. if you notice someone who is going to be alone during the holidays, or who is usually depressed but for no apparent reason seems markedly happy and is giving away their things, please invite them over. hang out with them, no matter how awkward it is. sudden cleaning and long notes about how much they love you are also signs of suicide. with recent changes in insurance, it’s increasingly harder to find mental health care, so help a friend out (and maybe even yourself!) by figuring out who still takes the insurance offered so we can all give ourselves the gift of coping mechanisms, the gift that keeps on giving.
@imaginashon has the habit of making amazing Hogwarts Au’s and I’m no stranger to drawing fanart for it because I NEED IT IN MY LIFE LIKE AIR I’M A SUCKER FOR HER AU’S ASHLEY THIS IS WHAT YOU DO TO ME I LOVE IT SO MUCH YOU HAVENT EVEN RELEASED ANYTHING MAJOR ABOUT IT AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
