Happy National Good Neighbor Day!

Milwaukee’s many neighborhoods are an essential element of the city’s formation, its citizens’ identities, and its future. Even on the darkest day, there are great neighbors in every area of this city. I’m happy to call Milwaukee home! 


Here is just a sample of some fine Milwaukee neighborhoods: 

Eastside-Brady Street, looking east from Franklin Place
Near North side-Commerce Street, looking eas
Downtown- Milwaukee River, River Houses Condominiums
Near South side- West Mitchell Street from 11th Street looking west
Bay View- Aerial view of the South Side and Lake Michigan
West Side- Wisconsin Avenue, looking west from 16th Street

A solemn, wistful point towards the sky for Mr. Fred Rogers on what would have been his 86th birthday.

March 20th is officially Good Neighbor Day, so get out there, rock a cardigan and be excellent to each other.

He would have wanted it that way.


“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has–or ever will have–something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.”

- Fred Rogers

anonymous asked:

any cute and innocent jeongguk with a cold/reserved tae? Or basically any fic where kookie is more open and aware about his feelings than tae?

this is pretty hard to come by but I hope we’ve found some that you like!

what do you fight for? by flywithtaetae - Taehyung has only ever known to keep his guard up. But that was before he knew Jungkook.

(guk isn’t exactly innocent in this, but tae is most definitely cold and reserved)

Kill Me (But Don’t Let Me Die) by DreamsOfAnotherReality - Taehyung is a hired killer and Jungkook works at a bakery. 

(admin guk says jungkook is sort of closed off in this but very innocent, but not in a cutesy way, and tae is very closed off in terms of his life and he’s just very secretive)

Like A Good Neighbor by AwkwardBeansidhe - Some days, it just hit him a little harder. He missed home. He missed his mom and his room and his dog. Which was how Jeongguk wound up on his upstairs neighbor’s doorstep, with a six pack and a box of dog treats. He tried to take it all in. A fluffy white ball of fur, barking adorably. Bare feet, jeans showing plenty of wear and tear, bright blue t shirt, soft brown tousled hair, and a face that made all his carefully planned introductions fly right out of his brain. “Seoltang, hush. Let me find out who it is.” He looked at Jeongguk expectantly, petting Seoltang calmly. The dog settled into his master’s touch and joined him in staring at Jeongguk. “Uh…” A really smooth introduction. “Hi. I live in 1240, right below you? I’m your neighbor. I heard you have a dog, and I like dogs, so I came to say hello.” Jeongguk held out the dog treats and beer, hoping that would cover any remaining awkwardness.

(tae isn’t cold in this, but he is the one with major commitment issues, instead of jungkook, for once haha)

Let Us by mindheist - A relationship is a two-way street.

(again, tae isn’t reserved or cold in this, but he seems to be more lost with his feelings than jungkook)

Our Red Scarf by MirreRover - Jeongguk is trouble. Taehyung likes trouble a bit more than he probably should. Just don’t tell Jimin about it.

(okay the thing I love about this fic is how complex the characters are. tae can’t get his shit together and he hurts both guk and jimin because of his mistakes. jungkook seems like the more cold and distant one on the surface but you eventually find out that he’s really just a vulnerable, hurt kid)

Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast by Kavbj - Taehyung has magic in his veins and Jungkook’s determined not to let it kill him.

(this might not be exactly what you’re looking for, but you might like it! tae is pretty mysterious through most of it, and while guk confronts a lot of issues head on and tries to get tae to open his eyes to them, tae is in denial and tries to avoid talking about the serious things that happen in this)

Good Neighbor Day
  • Person A and Person B are homebodies of their neighborhood. So when the neighborhood feast comes around (organized by Person C), they are persuaded to go. There they meet, being the only two newcomers to the neighborhood and hit it off.
    Person D and Person E are both single and Person F is the neighborhood matchmaker who likes to use the large get-togethers as an excuse to introduce people to one another. 
  • Person A is a firm believer in neighbor etiquette, and insists on bringing their child and going to meet their new neighbor, Person B, who is also a single parent. Person A is trying to instill in their child good neighbor etiquette. Person B doesn’t really like having people over, but Person A is insistent and compromises that they don’t have to come in, Person B and their child can come over for dinner at Person A’s home. (Bonus: Person B’s child is very outgoing, while Person A’s child is very withdrawn. Person B’s child takes an interest in their neighbor and the two parents end up becoming closer through the awkward interactions between each other and their children.)
