had such an amazing time with these people

anonymous asked:

aren't you upset that aussies got invited to LA SS, but not you?

No anon. I’m so happy for them. They are some of my favourite people and it’s amazing that Taylor would do this for them. I’ve been trying to meet Taylor for a long, long time and it has never happened, the odds of it happening I think are small. I’m not someone who really stands out to ever be picked for loft or something like that so I’ve never thought that Taylor would have noticed me/my blog specifically. I’m just going to sit here and enjoy the stories and photos of everyone who have had this amazing experience and be filled with love for Taylor for caring so much to do any of this.

I would die to get invited to a secret session but I’m honestly scared that if I did and people found out the hate would be ridiculous since I already met Taylor.

But here’s the thing people need to understand for those who have gotten to meet her more than once, it’s an amazing opportunity and if it’s offered they’re going to take it, even if they have met her before. And if you were given all those some opportunities I know you would all take them too. Even if you had met her 5 times.

I hosted my first Shabbat dinner and all I have to say is WOW.

I’m not naive I knew a lot of work and money went into hosting but sheesh my wallet is empty.

So I planned this dinner about 3 weeks ago. But I didn’t really focus on it until last week with the holidays and everything else going on. I decided to use OneTable (if you don’t know about it, go to the website. It’s AMAZING) I invited all my birthright friends and asked my roommates to invite their friends as well. I was nervous because no one had rsvp’d and I wasn’t getting much feedback from anyone. But slowly but surely people started responding. I had 15 guest total, I was shocked! Turns out only ONE birthright friend showed. But it was totally fine. I did host approved and met two new people.

It was my first time cooking for a large group. I was nervous af. I was in charge of making the bigger dishes so I did a Rosemary Chicken and Brisket in wine sauce. I’m gonna toot my own horn a bit… the brisket was amazing and I was hounded for the recipe. I was feeling amazing. Anyways my roommates made the veggie dishes so I had help. I had a fully stocked bar and my guest brought me tons of wine.

I set dinner for 7:30 pm and for the most part people showed up on time. It was truly amazing. I was nervous about having so many people but it was fine. 3 tables and 15 chairs! I only knew one person besides my roommates and it was really awesome. I would definitely do it again.

But i was HELLA tired Saturday. I woke up or barely woke up I should say and I intended to go to shul but I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I was suppose to go to lunch at Leah’s but I couldn’t get out of my bed. So I basically crashed alll day.


I can’t wait to host again.

ahhh to be completely honest with you, I haven’t read a ton of Dae fanfic. Not that I don’t want to it’s just I haven’t had the time!!!

Guardian and Ascension by Shan are amazing. As is the rest of her master list. Check her out if you haven’t already at @kpopfanfictrash 

I’ll give you a list of some of my favorite EXO writers though!!! Hopefully you can find what you’re looking for on one of these pages!

Sorry if I forgot anyone 🖤 

And old prompt from @cipher-agent with Doc & Vii


31. In awe, the first time you realised it


Doc had been stuck on Balmorra for who knows how long. He felt like he’d been here decades but it was just the lack of sleep talking.

A Jedi knight had come to his rescue. She was short, young. He hoped he wasn’t one of those junior Jedi. And he was wrong

He was so happy to be wrong.

She had rescued him, his patients and saved the god damn day. As first impressions went she did an amazing job. It took a lot to impress Ol’ Doc. But apparently, even if she was a Jedi, she did a better job then most people. She even gave him a way off the planet.

“Wow.” He muttered, “what a time to be alive”

elliotaldersonns replied to your post “the main event was wild and fun and tlc was all-around pretty good,…”

Exactly. I kept seeing so many negative comments. I was just having fun with the whole thing. It wasn’t going to be the serious, technical TLC match it would’ve been if Roman had been there. No one should’ve expected that.

i mean, tlc matches were basically designed to be spot-fests. and dean and seth were amazing throughout the whole thing; they basically carried the match and took the brunt of the punishment. and kurt’s role in the match and the story they told with him was great imo. of course they wouldn’t want him out there for 40 minutes of mayhem. and yeah, obviously not everything was perfect, because they only had a really short amount of time to prepare for the match. so all things considered, i think they did a really good job with it.

and if people want a technical masterpiece, did they miss the stellar wrestling match between two former bullet club leaders that happened just before this or what?

First: I was lowkey ‘scared’ to talk to you cos it looked like you had a lot of followers and you didn’t need to be talking to someone who only had 50-100 followers at the time, also had no idea what you’d think as I liked jack aswell, thought you’d “bite me head off” Now: talking to you was one of the best things, I quickly realised how amazing the people of this fandom are cos you can actually like the same as one another, we get on so well and I’m so thankful for you and our friendship +

I KNOW WHO THIS IS AND I ADORE YOU SO MUCH!!!!! i’m 99% sure you were the first friend i made in this fandom and i’m so thankful for u you don’t even knowwwww 💜

!!!

i just reached the 200 follower mark this morning & and i wanted to thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for making this possible!! 100 was a big deal to me, but 200 is an even bigger deal for me, since i had once believed that i would always be alone & isolated on the internet without anyone to talk to out of anxiety or shyness. like i said in my previous follower milestone posts, i’ve had blogs in the past that i ran for long periods of time, & during those times i had never felt more alone. the fact that there are 200 people who actually care is amazing. 

you guys have truly made me the happiest girl in the world right now. thank you so, so much. <3 

Why You Will Never Forget The Signs:

(And why you shouldn’t).


Aries: With them everything was easy. They had a strong, impulsive personality; one that made them look as someone who wasn’t afraid of anyone nor anything. They were honest and caring, and above all, they were always by your side no matter what. It’s normal to never forget an Aries… they were too special.

Taurus: They were too attentive. They didn’t give you everything at every hour, but when you least expected they appeared with that thing you were waiting for during weeks. Even when they were sad, they made you smile. And yes, you miss them.

Gemini: Every time you took a look on Gemini, you had one thing clear: they were one of the most expressive people you knew. They texted you just to know if you were doing ok, if you had arrived your home safe and to tell you that they missed you. They seemed to know exactly how you felt. They cared too much about you, and they weren’t even afraid to show it. You should call them.

Cancer: They were kind of complicated, especially with those mood swings… But when you discovered that they just needed love, you realized how amazing they were. They were the one who waited for you in the night, the one who texted you a million times just to tell you they were thinking about you, the one who looked for you everywhere because they wanted a hug. Maybe you don’t remember exactly when they left, but you do remember all the times they made you feel complete.

Leo: They’re just too hard to forget. Leo spent time with you, Leo made you feel soft, warm, loved. Leo was magic. Leo was the Sun, because when they left, it suddenly felt cold and dark. Everything changed. You told yourself you’re doing okay, but it’s not true. You can’t forget them because your life it’s not the same without them.

Virgo: You tried to find somebody like them, but you didn’t success. Virgo could listen to you talking about the same topic for hours and hours, and they wouldn’t complain. They didn’t tell you ‘i love you’, but they made you feel loved. Virgo was different, and, at the same time, Virgo was just like you.

Libra: They weren’t afraid to tell you how they felt and that they’d missed you, even when it wasn’t convenient for them. Libra believed in love, friendship, and everything pure in this world. And you admired them for that. It’s okay if you can’t forget them; nobody could.

Scorpio: They gave everything for you. They were there for you when nobody else was, they held you when you were falling apart, they told you not what you wanted to hear – but the truth, and now you realize that that’s what you really needed back then. They supported you, and now that they’re gone you feel as if they had left a hole in you. Well, … maybe you should speak to them again.

Sagittarius: You will never forget the excitement you felt when talking to them on the phone in the late, late night. Their laugh, their jokes, their stories. You will never forget them because they made you feel. You miss their energy and how they smiled when they spoke.

Capricorn: They had strength, they had bravery, they had character. Beside them, you learnt how to be mature, how to be a better person; to understand life. Perhaps it’s true that you didn’t miss them at first, but now they’re the only thing you can think about. Stop waiting for a sign. Call them.

Aquarius: It is quite complicated to forget someone who always tries to make everyone happy, someone who made you feel free and gave you all their love and trust, and that, my friend, is your case. You felt safe and sound next to them, and you learnt how to enjoy the littlest things in life.

Pisces: You will remember their generosity, their kindness, their patience towards others. Pisces was too special for you, because you always had that strange feeling of freshness with them. Probably they were your favorite person in the world. Maybe you won’t forget them in the near future, and maybe you shouldn’t try to.

The whole “Lucius was abusive with Draco” thing has always been so funny to me. Really, I don’t get how people are able to believe something so silly. 

Seriously, guys, wake the fuck up, if Lucius had been abusive with his son, he wouldn’t have been a part of the series. You know why? Because Narcissa “If you attack my son again I shall ensure that is the last thing you ever do” Malfoy would have killed him ten times in a row. 

Mass hug for those who didn’t spoil the show for everyone else.

I’m so jealous that you got to go to the VERY first show.  You’re the only people who can say they had NO idea what to expect.  But the level of respect I’ve seen so far on tumblr has been amazing.  (I’m avoiding Instagram tags)

There have been no real spoilers, no real videos - I know he asked, but not everyone respects that.  YOU guys respected that, and the surprise hasn’t been ruined for anyone going in future.  You have no idea how grateful I am. I was really worried that by the time I get to go in Europe, the entire show would already be online in various clips and streams.

But if everyone is as respectful as you guys then we have little to worry about.

Thank you SO much for not spoiling the experience for the thousands who are awaiting their turn.  I can only hope those attending the next 2 shows are as amazing as you guys.

some of my favourite shots from player 3

it was such a good show! i had an amazing time and it was so surreal getting to see the people i look up to. didn’t get a vip or a chance to ask a question or anything but i still loved it

we were told just not to post videos i think but just in case these are the only photos from rp3 i’m gonna post

I was SO impressed because, no shade to other people in the industry, but there are a lot of people who try to dance but with her, it seems very natural. We’ve had a lot of experience, Taylor and I, dancing at the club so I KNEW that she had what it took but sometimes it’s difficult to translate your club dancing to your on camera dancing and I thought she did such an amazing job at it, she was like…so kick ass. We didn’t film it that many times, she just killed it every single performance. [It was] not a lot [of takes] we obviously did a lot of camera moves, but she nailed it every time. We didn’t have to go back because she was messing up choreography. It was just, I mean I’ve worked with Beyonce and I’ve gotten to work with Taylor and it’s a very similar thing. She’s a perfectionist, she was never going to go out on camera and not show herself in the best light, and I thought she was amazing for her first time ever dancing, that looks like she’s been dancing her entire life.
—  Todrick Hall talking about Taylor’s dancing.

This thing is finally done. I never got around to finish it. (Not good with art.)
Hope you all like this crossover. I had a hard time deciding between white haired Lance, and brunette. So white-haired with his original jacket.


Thank you, @pepplemint - Keith looks so amazing. It hurts my heart. I just wrote your name down there so people will know you did him. Tell me if you wanna add your own signature.

Reminder that tumblr is not ‘anti recovery’ so much as full of really fucking bitter nd people for whom recovery has been either extremely difficult or flat out impossible.

The whole ‘suffered for a few years, gained access to therapy and meds, and then got better within months’ recovery story is not everyone’s story. It’s great, and I’m sure we’re all happy for the people whose recovery was that straightforward, but it’s not everyone’s story.

Some of us have fought tooth and nail pretty much our entire lives.

Some of us have had access to therapy and meds since pretty much the beginning, it just didn’t help.

Some of us have lived a life full of brief semi-recoveries followed by hard relapses.

Some of us have tried all of these recovery ideas multiple times and failed to improve (because surprise, they don’t work for everyone!).

Some of us have had to listen to the ‘eat a better diet’ ‘fix your sleep schedule’ and ‘exercise/do yoga’ shit from condescending nts (including therapists) who just can’t understand why their amazing advice isn’t working for us over and over and over again for years on end.

Because it works for most people? Why isn’t it working for you? You must not be trying hard enough… You just have to push yourself more! Do you even want to get better?

Instagram Is A Tiny Speck In The Ginormous Oil Painting of Life

One topic I think about obsessively: Instagram. More specifically, the psychological effect it has on me.

A while ago I posted a tweet saying I felt conflicted about social media, and the responses I got were surprising. People said that Facebook gave them anxiety, only going on certain sites when their mood was stable, whilst others deleted and re-activated their accounts regularly.

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with these platforms but they have so many pros that it makes them hard to quit. They connect me to like-minded people, are informative, make me laugh and give me an instant connection to my fanbase. It’s amazing to feel a level of relation in real time. However, in the last year I’ve noticed that every time I go on Instagram I feel kind of flat + zapped afterwards, like somebody has literally sat on my brain for 5 minutes. It’s oddly deflating.

Social media apps are designed to make us addicted to them. Human behaviour is reward based and each time we get a “like” or a message, our brains release a hit of dopamine, which makes us feel rrrreeeeal good (until the dopamine level drops and we feel real bad). Instagram is basically digital meth. So, for the past year I’ve been deleting the app off my phone for large periods of time, then re-downloading it if I want to post something. Interestingly, the feeling I get upon returning is always the same: I’ve missed nothing!

I understand social media’s appeal most when in relation to constructing a fantasy world. I’ve used it as a creative tool on every album I’ve made. Tumblr was key to “Electra Heart” and Twitter was key to “FROOT”. But what at first seemed like an opportunity to communicate our thoughts in an uncensored way has become a vehicle for us to present ourselves in the way that we would like to be seen by others. And this is what makes me feel weird about posting sometimes. A review I read of the film ’Ingrid Goes West’ nailed this feeling: “We use these platforms to lie and intentionally curate our lives”. The curating part hits a chord with me. It makes me feel icky, because I’ve surely, if subconsciously, done this - the majority of us have if we’re using the platform. How do I get around that and use it in a healthier way? Do I just delete the whole thing or do I need to be aware of the reason I want to post something? i.e. Is it to share an image I love, or is to make people think of me in a certain way? The latter creeps me out. It scares me.

Recently, a friend said he had been going through a difficult period, so he hadn’t gone on Instagram for about a month. “Why would I? Everyone is having such a great time”. Ohhh, the digital illusion of happiness. OK, some people are genuinely having a great time, and they want to share that great time with you, but they’re not having a good time all the time. And that’s the key to remember when we’re embarking on a scrolling spree into the darkest depths of existential hell at 2am. Social media is a tiny speck in the ginormous oil painting of human life. We all have problems. We present the good parts of ourselves because it’s anathema to document the true nature of our lives, which inevitably consist of moments of disappointment, loneliness and embarrassment. None of these things look pretty or cool (no, not EVEN if you put the Mayfair filter on top of them), and I can totally see how it all started out innocently. We all love sharing special moments, but because these moments hold social currency online, we’re now doing only that. It’s easy to see how people can feel disappointed when their own lives don’t measure up in a similar way.

Illustration by Lan Truong

We’re still in the infancy of the internet, trying to navigate technology in a way that is beneficial to our lives, but I sense a shift towards a desire to portray our lives more realistically. I notice more people sharing an experience or story in the caption of a selfie/ photograph that provides more of a picture of their life than the actual photo ever could. But I still wonder how we can evolve online culture into a space that is less image-focused/ self-driven, because I worry about the psychological effects that an image-focused culture might have on a young person’s self-esteem. 20 years ago, posting a stream of pictures of only my face would have been considered borderline narcissistic, but now it’s normal. And I’m not judging this - I’m talking from the perspective of someone who has done this a’plenty and who has been a part of that culture, particularly at the height of an album campaign. Maybe all Instagram has done is magnify what seems to have always been true, that humans value beauty to excess.

Ok, I’ll end this post by saying this: If I never go on Instagram again, my life won’t lack anything because of it. Assuming I use it 20 minutes a day, I’ll get back 122 hours a year - for free! The reality is, I’ll probably continue to use it, but it’s important to me to see these platform for what they are, not what they appear to be. They’re addictive, comparative, take my time and give little back in return.

I’ll leave you with my fave comment which came from @FKASimon.

Quite, Simon, Quite.

Love, Marina

Ask a question or a share a thought here!

First of all, we get to go to Edom. […] There is someone named Asmodeus, you might be familiar with him, and we get to kind of slightly peel back the onion of that, which is super interesting. I wish Harry was here too, because he’s crushing it this year. He has also this new set, this apothecary. And he really had to deal with the ramifications of Season 2B of siding with the Seelie Queen and with all the warlocks behind him, this is the right thing to do. Magnus, that wasn’t the right thing to do. You messed up. […] We really deal with the reality of ramifications and bad decisions. You know, people on TV, they do it all the time and it’s like, ‘Oh, everything’s fine now.’ Life’s not like that, you know, and these characters, especially him, he has to really go through a whole metamorphoses in Season 3. It will rock your world. It’s amazing; it’s so good.

Well, here we are again folks. Time for me to once again talk about the people I love to no end. I hope you’re ready, because this is a long one. Also, yes, I’m using the same graphic as last time. Leave me alone.

All I have to say to all you lovely people this time around is that I love you all very much and am very appreciative of this community existing, because I’ve made some very amazing friends here and increased my love of hockey infinitely because of you wonderful people. I feel like I’ve grown and changed a lot in my own personal life due to being on hockey tumblr and the people that I’ve met here and interacted with, and it’s only been positive growth and change. I think that people talk a lot of shit about internet communities and how toxic they can be, and while sometimes that may be true, you folks always shock and surprise me with how wonderful, lovely and supportive you can all be. I appreciate it endlessly, and I hope it never changes. So thanks for 1,000 followers (that’s insane) and let’s get started!
