@incorrectrotbtdquotes​ has a lot of brilliant quotes, but some of them are short, so they are the reason for this small so-to-be-called Collection of one-short (hehe ‘one-shot’, get it?) quotes.

They are a nice way to draw something quickly when I have time, or when I have an artist block. xD

It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one

WALANI LOVES THE ANIMALS AND JUST WANTS TO CHILL OUT CUDDLING ANIMALS ALL THE TIME COMPILATION

Even when a creature is her enemy, her animal loving heart cannot help but be endeared.

Other notable Walani things:

  • She asks the bunny men if they give good hugs.
  • When she sees a mosling, she says “Don’t you just want to pick it up and squeeze it?" 
  • No animosity for the gobbler. “He’s a doofy little guy.”
  • She calls koalefants “big guy” and encourages them to hang ten.
  • Her catcoon quote is the GREATEST. “It’s very independent and loves garbage. Me too!”
  • She loves all the birds in the reign of giants world, unlike SOME so called bird lovers who reject the crows for being too creepy. *coughs at Wilson*
  • When she’s looking at the cactus armor, she says “How can I hug trees wearing this?”
  • Cat Cap: “I can feel the spirits of catcoons that made it.”
  • I could go on and on forever. She has a LOT of cute quotes about the animals and lot of hippy-like quotes. Walani is the number one animal lover. Let her chill out and snuggle her animal friends.
  • Lotte: Nightfall has lots of memorable quotes! "Life is like a box of chocolates, you'll never know what you're gonna get," "We'll always have Paris," and "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."
  • Sucy: The author took those from Forest Gump, Casablanca, and Apocalypse Now.
  • Lotte: .....
  • Akko: Lotte, we'll take you to the movies this weekend.

Speaking of MEA Appreciation Week…

I loved ALL loyalty missions:
-Cora:
First of all, Vederia is such a nice character? And we get some much needed character development for Cora, highlightening her issue with mentors. She comes out of it stronger, much more self-assured and on her way to become a mentor herself (more about Cora here).
-Vetra:
Sister of the Galaxy Award goes to… Sid and Vetra? Both are good.
I genuinely enjoyed how Sid showed Vetra it was important for her to become a “sister” again and let go of her role as parent (more about their dynamic
here).
The loyalty mission also introduces one of the coolest locations in the game. We all had fun with the Nomad, right???
-Drack:
Vorn is a cutie and his relationship with Drack is surprisingly really sweet? I also liked bonding with Drack and getting to know him better. It’s clear he’s afraid of being irrelevant and too old to matter, and you’re basically telling him that no, he’s important. He’s REALLY important. And Vorn is nodding vigorously every time, which made me happy.
Drack also has a lot of kickass quotes. Favorite is: “There’s only one thing getting destroyed here today. And that’s you. And this place. And also your boss. And probably your entire crew. So a lot of things are getting destroyed here, actually - and all of them are yours!”
-Liam:
Let’s face it, this is one of the funniest missions in the game. It also gives a calmer Liam afterwards, who in the end just wants people to be happy? And you’re like… “Liam, I get it. You want peace and love, you’re a good guy. It’s okay. How about we just don’t rush into things????”
And he learns from that.
-Peebee:
The beginning of her loyalty mission made me laugh so hard. This is also the mission that made me see just how amazing Peebee is, how deeply she feels, and how all along she’s just been trying not to get hurt. At the end of the mission, she’s ready to commit and accepts that love might come with pain too. It made me really proud of her. 
-Jaal:
This one is simply gorgeous. It’s probably one of the most interesting and nuanced missions in the game, offering very different point of views.
I personally think Akksul is really complex and his relationship with Jaal quite intense. So we learned a lot. We also saw Jaal being really protective of his siblings and his people. I like that we see the fighter and the marshmallow at the same time :)

The signs as cliché characters in a movie.
  • Aries : the badass character who constantly kicks ass and fights people but is a good person deep down.
  • Taurus : the funny parent that always bakes stuff and offers a hot chocolate to everyone who feels sad.
  • Gemini : the ultimate handsome villain who builds and army to destroy the world but gets killed off by the hero in the end.
  • Cancer : the super shy character who is really sarcastic and into books but ends up falling for the popular boy/girl.
  • Leo : the popular character who is secretely a huge nerd and ends up realizing "being popular" isn't everything.
  • Virgo : the nerd character who's basically a genius and constantly saves everyone's ass.
  • Libra : the great character who has a lot of potential and remarkable quotes but doesn't get much screentime.
  • Scorpio : the typical bad boy/girl, super badass but ends up revealing their "tragic backstory" to the love interest.
  • Sagittarius : the hippie parent who's constantly high and talks about yoga and animals and drugs all the time.
  • Capricorn : the evil teacher who is revealed as the ultimate crazy villain at the end.
  • Aquarius : the best friend who is super sarcastic and funny 100% of the time and always makes a fool out of themselves.
  • Pisces : the tragic "evil" character that was treated badly in their childhood, but becomes good toward the end.

Getting over fears is not as scary as you think! :-)

Importance of getting over fears - Being able to conquer your fears gives you a sense of confidence, motivation, productivity, satisfaction, pride, and it empowers you to do bigger things. You grow with each fear you conquer and you realize you have a lot of potential in you that you never knew you had. You may even procrastinate less because you get over the dread and fear of big projects and studying. And it’s not the end result that makes you proud, it’s all about the effort and mental strength you put in along the way that’s rewarding.  

1 | Realize how much power you’ve given to your fear - The first step is to realize you actually want to conquer them instead of allowing them to set limits on how you live. Fear is disabling, but it doesn’t have to be. Think about how your fears prevent you from doing something you actually want to do. For example, I used to be afraid of turning on gas stoves and I couldn’t cook meals as conveniently in college like everyone else because of it. I hated it, accepted it, and thought there was just no way around that fear. However, I realized that you have to learn to control the fear instead of letting it control you. Set each fear you want to get over as a goal to accomplish. Make a list and make the effort to cross them off.  But how do you gain the courage to “just do it”? (tip: saying “YOLO” actually does help a little, or things like “TODAY’S THE DAY, FOLKS” when you feel like making it happen.)

2 | Change the way you think about the fear – Fear is all in your mindset. In my psych classes, I learned about cognitive therapy and how it aims to change distorted thinking and alter behavior. I connected that type of therapy to how we think about fears and how it negatively affects our behaviors. Phobias are irrational so it helps to change that thinking into something more rational by reminding yourself of more realistic thoughts. For my gas stove fear, I repeatedly told myself that I’ve seen my housemates turn it on a hundred times and nothing ever goes wrong when they do it. When I feared dogs, I repeatedly reminded myself that they won’t hurt me because the dogs seemed fine around other people. And if your own words don’t help you, I have found quotes (mostly on tumblr) to be extremely helpful tips/advice/wisdom in making me change my point of view on fear. Write them down, put them on your wall, have a collection of them on your blog, or just keep them in mind.  

Here are my top favorites that I found most helpful.

“If you can’t beat fear, then just do it scared.” – Glennon D. Melton

“So please ask yourself: What would I do if I weren’t afraid? And then go do it.” – Sheryl Sandberg

“I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.” – Kristin Armstrong

3 | Baby steps - Face fears gradually and in small doses. A helpful phrase I learned in my psychology classes is “systematic desensitization,” which is basically a way of progressively exposing yourself to what you’re scared of and learning to relax and get used to your phobia. Here’s how it helped me personally. My fear of dogs has kept me out of my friends’ houses for a very long time and one day I decided to just step in. Of course, that involved a lot of anxiety. Usually, if I got anxious, I would just leave within the first 5 minutes. However, for once, I let myself stay there until I got calm, which took about 15 minutes before I was able to be okay in the same room as the dog. I saw that the dog was no threat to my personal safety, but I still was scared to touch it. My friend helped me hold onto the dog so it wouldn’t make sudden movements and told me to just touch it with one finger, and I did. A few minutes later, I was able to use my entire hand to pet the dog, and then within an hour, I grew to really like this specific dog. One year later, I’m extremely fond of big, fluffy dogs, but mostly because I was so proud of myself for facing that fear. I’m still working on getting comfortable with smaller dogs and other animals, but I’ve come a long way! Anxiety is no joke, I get it, and it’s tougher for some than others, so only push yourself a little bit at a time & at a pace you’re comfortable with There are days where you’re simply not ready to take on a fear, and that’s okay! It’s always okay to take it slow!

4 | Keep track of your progress, failures, and successes - Writing down your fears as goals, identifying why you’re scared, and developing a plan to work on that fear helps improve the chances of you actually completing them and trust me, it’s gratifying to reflect on how far you’ve come and how much you’ve changed. It’s all up to you on whether you want to record your progress in a bullet journal, a diary, a blog, or just a sticky note, but having it down somewhere is key!  I received a copy of Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You by Robie Rogge as a gift this year. It’s a cute little journal that has a lot of helpful quotes and room on each page to write down the date you did something scary and what scary thing you did. It’s definitely worth checking out! I don’t write in it every day, but I do write in it every time I conquered a fear, whether big or small, and I love looking back at how many pages I’ve filled out and how I can’t wait to add more milestones to my journal.

5 | The biggest fear to work on is the fear of getting over fears -  Once you’re not scared to conquer fears, then you’ve become truly fearless in any challenge. And to do so, you just have to do it. Each fear you get over accumulates in developing stronger, more open, and confident mindset and positively redefines who you are! You are capable and you have the potential!  

“Try a thing you haven’t done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third time to figure out whether you like it or not.” - Virgil Thomson  

Disclaimer: These tips might not be for everyone, but they worked for me, so I hope it helps others grow too! :-)  I understand that working on things that give you anxiety is not easy, so this post is not to say you can brush fears off like it’s a piece of cake because it’s really not that simple, or else I wouldn’t have spent 20 years of my life being afraid of twenty gazillion things. People are works in progress and hopefully this post motivates you to make some progress, even if it’s just a little!

Mayor John Hancock appreciation post! Seriously, he is so sweet and loving. He has a lot of great quotes, but here are a few romantic ones.

First panel quote: “Nothing to lose but each other.”

Second panel quote: “Well, look at you. I must still be dreamin’…” (the Lover’s Embrace perk is great, by the way)

Third panel quote: “Words don’t begin to do it justice. You, you’re the best thing I got.”

Fourth panel quote: “Ain’t been an easy road, but it was worth it to get to you.”

I don’t know if this is the type of thing to do on tumblr but fuck it. As I’ve been posting to this blog I have started to think about something: branching out. So starting this Monday at 12 a.m. GMT, this blog will no longer be Fight Club dedicated. I will still be posting quotes to this blog, but they will be quotes from movies in general and not just one like I’ve been doing. Probably because I’ve realised that I will eventually run out of Fight Club quotes 😂😂 and the movie world in general obviously has a lot more opportunities for posting quotes. You never know, Fight Club might still pop up somewhere. I am incredibly thankful for the following I have gained throughout my time posting on this blog and I hope you will stick around for the future. Above I have compiled a selection of my best posts on this blog! Please continue to support this blog as it is something that I really enjoy doing. Its a platform unlike any other. Again thank you for all the support and I hope you will stick around! (please tell me if this was super cringey or you’re not meant to do this, so I can avoid embarrassing myself again 😂)

books i read in 2016: the night circus by erin morgenstern

“people see what they wish to see. and in most cases, what they are told that they see.”

ftleo  asked:

Tumblr types por hoshido?

  • Ryoma - Sushi and anime blog. He’s Japan’s version of a weeaboo. 
  • Hinoka - Fitblr. She’s got vegan recipes and pictures of people at the gym and different workouts outlined, with the occasional bird post. 
  • Takumi - One of those edgy emo kid blogs with sad quotes. Brood brood brood. 
  • Sakura - Medblr probably. She’d likely become a doctor and just put pictures of cadavers like, Normal day at school! 
  • Saizo - Just a bunch of edgy should-be-on-a-Hot-Topic-shirt quotes and pictures. 
  • Kagero - Art blog. A lot of it is eccentric and no one really understands her art tastes, but she’s in love with her blog and you can’t bring yourself to criticize her taste. 
  • Azama - Music and lifestyle blog. He’s got a clean, neat aesthetic that he’s very proud of, and will blacklist as many things as he needs to in order to keep his dash neat as well. 
  • Setsuna - Reblogs of really dreamy and whimsical images of things like water waves or outer space. Just anything that makes you feel warm or lost in thought. 
  • Hinata - Fandom blog for Fairy Tail, probably. Or John Cena, whatever. 
  • Oboro - Fashion blog. Primarily she deals with Asian fashion, whether it be Indian lenghas or Japanese yukatas, she’s got it all in her collection. 
  • Hana - Nature blog. She loves nature and photography, so her tumblr is a potpourri of her own and other’s photographs of plants, animals, landscapes, skies, you name it. 
  • Subaki - Just filled with selfies of himself. He has a touch-up app that he uses to make sure any breakouts are concealed and that the perfect amount of light reflects from his eyes. If there is less than 100 notes after 4 hours of posting a picture, he will take it down, for it was less than perfect. 
  • Hayato - Food porn blog. Oh his love of sweets may be something he hides, but he indulges when he’s on tumblr, just frothing at the mouth as he scrolls through pictures of perfectly sculpted cupcakes and smooth, rich brownies. 
  • Kaden - Zootopia fandom blog. 
  • Orochi - Medieval aesthetic blog. She loves the older times of Europe and Feudal Japan, obsessed with the cultural aspects and any images and quotes associated with that pop up on her blog. 
  • Rinkah - Fitblr. She’s the inspiration of so many other girls and always reads the nice messages she gets, feeling warmed by the love she’s showered with and adores seeing her own followers improve their physical shape upon seeing her. 
  • Reina - She probably uses tumblr as Pinterest, she just goes full mom-mode and loves to collect ideas on various projects, but fails at pulling through with any of them. 
  • Yukimura - Book porn. Like images of libraries and old books, writing, all of that he loves. 
  • Scarlet - Social justice blog. She is a very active feminist and eagerly participates in engaging conversations about issues with her country. She does get a hot head a times, but she is so good about apologizing and admitting to her mistakes. 
  • Shiro - Sports blog. He actively posts analysis on recent matches and games for the sports he follows. His favorite sports are Sumo and Cricket. 
  • Kiragi - Archery blog. He’ll create his own niche for it, he’s obsessed with the sport and loves to blog about it, even though his posts get anywhere between 0 and 2 notes. 
  • Asugi - See Hayato. 
  • Selkie - Crafting blog. She loves to make stuff, sewing, knitting, crocheting, sculpting, carving, painting, jewelry making, she loves all of it and has too many projects reblogged for her to ever catch up with. 
  • Hisame - Pickle blog. Very cucumber. 
  • Mitama - Poetry blog. She writes a ton of poems and has a huge following, and often promotes other poets on tumblr, which has earned her a lot of respect and love from all communities of tumblr. 
  • Caeldori - Her blog mainly focuses on falling in and out of love as she progresses through her love life. She has lots of sad and happy quotes and going on her blog means you’re going to want to confess to someone after you’re done scrolling. 
  • Rhajat - South Asian aesthetic blog. She loves the rich culture of South Asia and the Middle East, and her outfits are inspired by much of that traditional apparel. She is educated in the cultural aspects and is very cautious about appropriation. Of course, the occasional hex is mixed in with her posts… shhhh…

Fallout Week Day One - Favorite Quote

Player: Why are you always working on such weird ideas?

Moira: Well, look around at the world we live in. It may be okay to you, but I’ve read about what it used to be like, and this wasn’t it. So we all need something that keeps us going, despite all the terrible things around us. For me, it’s things like this book. 

I generally focus more on NV than FO3, it’s simply my favorite game out of really all games in history. But this is definitely my favorite quote.

Fallout in general has a lot of really poignant topics & quotes to match, but none really hit me like this one. I know it’s long, but it’s just really personal and sweet and after getting to know Moira and putting up with her and doing things for her… Her depth kinda sneaks up on you, and it’s pretty great. I really think this piece of dialogue is beautiful.
