great way to start off my morning

Early Mornings: Isaac Lahey

Note: an Isaac part to this series was requested so here it is :)


The only reason I woke up at five thirty on the floor was because there was no Great Wall of Isaac to keep me from rolling right off the bed like there usually was. Groaning, I pushed myself up and rested my forehead against the side of the mattress. What a way to start the day, huh?

           “Um, babe?” My head jerked up. The bathroom door was open; light was pouring into our dark bedroom with such intensity that I had to squint to see. “What are you doing down there?”

           “Is this another short joke or are you actually wondering why I’m on the floor?” I grumbled. Laughing softly, Isaac turned off the light and padded over to me, bending at the knees to scoop me up like a rag doll.

           “I’m actually concerned. Did you fall?” He set me down gently before sliding under the covers himself. I instantly snuggled into him, nuzzling his bare chest with my nose as I murmured, “Yes.”

           He laughed again. I sent him a glare. “Sorry, sorry. You’re just too cute. But you are okay, aren’t you?”

           “I’m fine.” I yawned. “I’m just cold. Cuddle me, damn it.” This sent him into another fit of laughter as he complied, wrapping me in his arms.

My Favorite Games of 2016, Pt. 1

Two a day, let’s go.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Let’s start off the list with something that makes everyone roll their eyes and immediately tune out everything I say for being a disgusting weeaboo.

Digimon Cyber Sleuth is a great game. It’s yet another series that, much like Yokai Watch and others, looked at the gameplay style Pokemon pioneered and then actually evolved in ways Nintendo adamantly refuses to do, resulting in something sort of like a hybrid between Pokemon and SMT. While it’s impossible for me to deny that nostalgia for saturday mornings of my childhood where I watched Digimon had some impact on how much I liked this game, it’s still a good game with good mechanics, a great sound track, and memorable and likable characters. While the narrative was standard anime affair, it had some hype moments that I’m probably not gonna forget any time soon.

All these things combined made for a great lengthy classic JRPG experience that I wholly enjoyed in every way.

OneShot

For the second year running I have a topdown rpg-style game with furry bait and that does weird meta shit on the list so this is another reason you can just ignore everything I say from this point going forward.

OneShot was not a game I was expecting to love as much as I did. Hell, I wasn’t even sure about buying it, initially. But a few people whose opinions I trust were losing their shit over this game, enough that I decided ‘well okay let’s buy this’ and I tried to remain as blind as possible, and it was worth it. OneShot is a great game with charming graphics, some intriguing mysteries, and some really cool bits that I hesitate to spoil so much that I can’t even really explain what makes the game so brilliant; it’s one of those things where telling you kind of ruins it.

But One Shot is a great game. It’s about 2 hours ong, it’s currently around 9 dollars on Steam, it’s never, ever fucking coming to consoles, so just pick it up and try it, okay? Trust me.

never-ending camp playlist: Good Morning!

It’s wake up time!

83/365 Saturday March 25, 2017

Today was the best. Started off a little rough, I tried to go to a massage (my first EVER) that I scheduled a month ago but my masseuse got pulled over on the way to work… but they offered me a free massage for next weekend! So instead I went on an early morning hike in the early spring air :) My absolute favorite time of the year. Then brunch with Sea & Robyn and great discourse. Then got a haircut & got ready for my sister to do a lover’s photoshoot of Robyn & I. The weather was AMAZING and the cherry trees are full bloom so I’m soooo excited to see how they turn out. I wish every day could be this way.

Hushabye Mountain (Josh Dun)

Pairing: Josh Dun x Reader

“Josh, I’m sorry but is it okay with you that Cassie is with us today? My sis dropped her off at my place this morning because she had a meeting out of town,” Y/N spoke over the phone.

Josh agreed to have Y/N’s niece Cassie with them today, as he is comfortable around kids. Y/N has been Josh’s girlfriend for a few years now and it’s been great for Josh. She’s been the light of his life since they started dating. How cliche it must have been for the both of them to fall in love with their best friend.

Josh made his way to Y/N’s house for a movie night with her niece. He rang the doorbell when he got there. Y/N opened the door, holding three year old Cassie in her arms. She looked gorgeous, even though she wore the most comfortable clothes a person would wear in their home.

“Jishwa!” cheered Cassie, extending her arms to Josh.

Josh scooped his girlfriend’s niece onto his arms. “Hey, kiddo!”

“Hey there, gorgeous,” he greeted Y/N.

Y/N slightly flushed and tiptoed to peck his lips. They re-entered the warm home of Y/N, heading straight to the living room. Blankets were sprawled everywhere, along with pillows. An array of dvds were scattered on the floor while Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was on tv.

“We decided to have a Disney marathon today. Didn’t we, Cas?” asked Y/N.

“Yup, yup, yup! Aunt Y/N and I watched the Little Mermaid a while ago, and I sang with Ariel!” she  smiled.

Josh grinned and sat on the floor, grabbing a blanket to make himself comfortable. “Really, kiddo? No doubt that you’re better in singing than your Aunt here.”

Cassie giggled and nodded. “No, no! Aunt Y/N will always be the best!”

Y/N sat beside Josh and leaned onto him. “Better warn Tyler that I’m the best around here, Jish!”

“Yep! You are the best. And better tell Tyler that later,” Josh kissed Y/N softly.

For the entire afternoon, and after dinner, they continued to watch Disney movies. When Cassie fell asleep, Josh and Y/N brought her up to a guest room. Josh and Y/N continued to watch Disney movies until they heard crying from the guest room.

“I’ll handle it. Just a nightmare,” Y/N got up and went to comfort the little one.

Josh waited for Y/N to return when he heard a soft melody flow through his ears. He decided to follow the sound. He stopped when a dim light from the guest room lit the dark hallway. The door of the guest room was open, and that’s where he heard the soft singing.

“..sail faraway from lullabye bay~" 

Standing by the doorframe, Josh watched Y/N soothe Cassie from a nightmare. He fell in love with the melodic voice that calmed the child down. He loved Y/N from the very beginning, and he’ll love her through his life, and this is where he decided it. He dreamed that it was she who sung their future children to sleep. The love and care in her voice kept him clouded in a thought.

When Y/N noticed Josh by the door, she noticed the soft look he gave her. She stood and took him from his thoughts.

"Do you wonder how it’ll be like when we have our own kids, Y/N?” whispered Josh.

“Sometimes..” she trailed off.

“Y/N, I know this is a bit unexpected, but will you marry me? The way you sang Cassie to sleep made me fall in love with you all over again, and I don’t want to lose the woman who truly cares for everyone she loves. I wanna see your beautiful face every morning till we grow old, and hear your beautiful voice calm our children to sleep. So will you?”

Y/N placed her lips upon his, whispering a yes after pulling apart. Josh took her into another kiss, this time more passionate than the last. They cherished the moment while it lasted. 

A young voice startled the couple. “Uncle Jishwa and Aunt Y/N will be married now. Yay!”

They both smiled at the little girl.

“Shouldn’t you be asleep?” teased Y/N.

“Woops! Sorry!”

Berry Boost Smoothie

I live off of morning smoothies, I find that although you lose some nutrients in the process, they remain for me the most efficient way to throw a bunch of vitamins and minerals into a blender and start my day off on the right step. Feeling energized and fresh. I use all organic products and local whenever I can. 

Here is a smoothie I threw together this morning. The image itself fresh out of the blender was great (However to be fair as the time goes on because of the spinach it does turn more green…)

Ingredients 

(This yields two larger mason jar services)

  • 1 medium sized banana
  • 2 c. baby spinach
  • ½ c. cucumber
  • ½ c. fresh strawberries
  • ½ c. frozen mixed berry blend (dark sweet cherry, blackberry, blueberry)
  • 2 tbsp. dried goji berry 
  • 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp. milled flax seed
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp. hemp seed oil
  • 2 ½ c. coconut almond fresh (can be substituted for water)

Directions

  1. Put that all in a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute.  


Bon Appetit!

I’ve misplaced my coin purse, it seems. 

If that’s not a great way to start off your morning, I’m afraid that I’m in for a rude awakening. 

Needless to say, if anyone has seen a coin purse adorned with little golden stars, please tell me.

Well there we go! I’ve written out the ‘coming out’ text to my mum so I’ll be ready to just send it in the morning! Woooh this is going to be very weird but I’m glad I can step fully out the closet after years and years. 

It’ll be a really nice way to start my 21st, even if it doesn’t go as planned (which I’m sure it will! My parents are great people) it’ll still be a refreshing thing to do!

All I have to do now is sleep and wake up and try to keep my mind off it all day, as my mum will probably have her phone off until afternoon!

7:02 am

I have a Chem final in an hour and my best friend and I are HONESTLY panicking. on the bright side, I get to go over to brees house afterward. I’m trying to tell myself that this test doesn’t define me and that a year from now this grade will not matter in the slightest bit. but my anxiety keeps popping his little head in and is whispering sh*t like “honey you’re wrong this percentage will make or break you” and I Just want to cry. also, I made the strongest cup of coffee this morning and I can’t see straight and I’m shaking. what a great way to start off the morning. I’m a mess, sorry if you read this.
