Swan:  your shift ends at 6, right?

Jones:  aye, will you be home when I get there?

Swan:  yep, case closed. Planning on ordering pizza.

Swan:  nope, but it’s always good to hear

Swan:  love you, too

Jones:  ;) break’s over, gotta run. see you tonight

Realizing she’s smiling like an idiot at her phone, Emma pushes off the couch and stretches her legs, her muscles still a bit sore from working too long with Belle hunched over their laptops. Killian had already left for work by the time she had made it home, leaving her with just his side of the bed and the faint hint of his spicy aftershave on his pillow as comfort as she slipped into a deep slumber.

Since rousing just after 2pm, she’s downed almost an entire pot of coffee and has been practicing the conversation she knows she needs to have with him tonight now that she’s finally clear on what she wants.  It’s not fear of him not agreeing with her, but more, that he will agree outright without really thinking it through. His tendency to put her happiness before his, while sweet, isn’t how they should decide on this. They need to do it together, weigh the pros and cons and talk through the realities of what it will mean for both of them. Not that she’s looking to move forward yet. They’ve only been living together for 7 months, 2 weeks and 3 days (not that she’s counting) and she’s nowhere near ready, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t talk about how they envision their future, together.

Monthly Mileage for July 2015: 123.90
  • 7.40 hiking
  • 104.00 running
  • 12.50 walking

That was only 2 hiking trips. There just wasn’t enough hiking this year. Too much bad weather, too many other plans, and too much work. Ah well. We will make up for it in the spring.

As for the running, I was sure I would have 115 to end the month, but I took off both yesterday AND today. I am exhausted and I really needed the rest and extra sleep (got in all my strength training, though!).

Tomorrow is a woods work day and that will make three non-running days in a row - a good reset for my energy levels (not to mention, um, my left knee, left hamstring, lower back and right foot… *cough*… taking care of everything best I can, I promise!).

But, 104 miles is awesome and July was definitely what I hoped it would be in terms of mental attitude (STILL loving the challenge of summer running!) and physical strength-building. In fact, my paces on my moderate and hard runs have been far faster this month than I even expected. Hoping to see more of that in August, as it will translate into some awesome speeds when the weather starts to cool. I’m excited to see what happens.


So I was having a conversation with one of Port City Underground’s favorite and most loyal customers the other day about our new beer list. I am quite proud of the new beer selection and have a hard time not bragging about it. I happened to also mention that I would love to find a kegerator for Port City so that we could have at least 1 beer on tap.

Today he dropped this adorable kegerator off.

I am still waiting for an official answer to whether or not it will actually be able to stay… But Lacey didn’t say no.

So as it stands, we have a 50/50 chance of being able to sell draught beer at Port City in the near future.

Keep your fingers crossed for me my followers . Having at least 1 beer on tap would be a dream come true.


Swan Queen Week | Day 06: Act(s) of True Love
   ⤷ Road Trip to Henry: (06/07)

“Who actually listens to Phil Collins, anyway?”

“I thought you were letting this go.”

“I said I wouldn’t turn it off. Mocking your questionable music taste, on the other hand, is fair game. In fact, as newly appointed girlfriend, I think it should be one of my official duties.”

“You’re right. I could always change it to the station on that billboard we just passed. I believe its slogan was, ‘Today’s Best Country Music, Darn Tootin’.'”

“Have I ever mentioned how much I love the movie Tarzan? The soundtrack is awesome.”

Two stories from the only two nonfandom people that I have talked to about this fiasco:
1. My second mom. She is in her early 60’s, and the night that the story broke I was going over to her house ironically so we could watch the One Direction movie. I had taken her and my sister to the concert in San Diego and she was now a fan, despite not knowing much about the fandom and continuing to mix up Niall and Liam. While we are going to get pizza before starting the movie I vaguely mentioned that today had been a weird day for One Direction. When she asked why, I told her that people magazine had ran a story that Louis got some girl pregnant. Without any prompting she said “look, I subscribe to People and I love it but they run shit all the time and you have to take it with a grain of salt. They are wrong all the time. This story seems ridiculous” despite being a fan of people magazine, she definitely didn’t buy it.
2. I was at happy hour today with my best friend who is also 25 like me and is a pharmacist. She is not a 1d fan but she obviously knows I am. She told me “oh so I heard Harry got his friend pregnant, how is that going??” She legit thought it was Harry because his name had been brought up so many times in the article.

The reason I am sharing these stories is because I want this fandom to be able to have some degree of perspective. We are too close, too emotionally involved and know too much. Other people do not and either don’t believe this or don’t have their facts straight or just don’t care. So moral of the story is that this is definitely something the band can come back from. Don’t think that things are set in stone yet; they are not at all.

Coincidences? I think not...

Ever since I woke up about two weeks ago and decided to make some major changes moving forward in my life, this is the best I’ve felt in months, spiritually, physically, emotionally…not to mention, the beautiful, kind, and warming things strangers and friends alike have been doing for me.

You can refer to my latest YouTube video more about these “changes” I’m talking about, but I thought I’d share some of these lovely gestures…

1) Yesterday, my usual gym closed early, so I went to another one, explaining that I’ll pay for the guest pass. The man at the front desk smiled, waved me in, and said it’s on him.

2) Today, I got a smoothie from a lovely store in my town. When I got to my car, IT FELL and spilled everywhere. I went back in, ordered a new one, and when I got to the cashier, he recognized me, asked what happened, and said, “Don’t worry about paying again, go enjoy.”

3) I was in line just now getting the Coconut Bliss ice cream, and the express line was very long. There was a beautiful couple in front of me with a baby who only had 3-4 things, but they insisted I check out before them. I kept thanking them, I turned back and smiled before leaving and thanked them again, and they both proceeded to say, “God bless! Have a great day!”

I’m just in awe. When you give out love and kindness, you’d be so surprised what you get back.

Hi Jet!

I just want to show you this because my gf got me this and it is just FANTASTIC. I actually have the whole set of them. I do quite enjoy having Mako and Rei looking after the well being of my feet.






Hi everyone, today I felt like building another tiny house, as I have mentioned before I love tiny houses because they are easy and quick to build, but, just because they are tiny it doesn’t mean they lack style and personality. This tiny house is only the shell, it has been landscaped and decorated mostly with game content and very little cc as I like making it easy for everyone to be able to download my lots without the hassle of having to download a tonne of cc. As the title suggest, this tiny house was named garden essence because I wanted to put a bit more focus on the garden part of this lot, including little plants in strategic spots without making it a complete jungle, just enough to give it a touch of “country”, colour and happiness :)

I hope you all like and enjoy!

Dear Lovelies! Many of you have already been made aware of these types of messages, but I will reiterate because I received this in my inbox today:

1. Any account that you do not know who sends you/ talks about a link, especially with the mention of beta testing a video game, is FAKE. These links are loaded with lots of bad stuff, so DO NOT CLICK.

2. These roboblogs tend to follow you first. They have very obscure names, so if you suspect something, check out their blog (the blog itself does not carry harmful bugs).

3. Their icons are completely random, photostock-esque pictures with some random phrase below. They do not allow any sort of messaging directly, but they can message you. They also tend to reblog generic pictures and usually don’t reblog actual tumblr user posts, but that can vary.

I was troubled to see these going around again because there are people that haven’t yet heard about this scam who mean well and want to support someone’s independent ‘game’ to help them out. So yeah, everyone stay safe and continue to have a great summer! ~

Are you tired of pictures of my work desk/makeup station yet? No? Good, because I literally have nothing interesting to show you today - a selfie is out because my face is still trying to decide whether we’re going through puberty again or if we’re finally ready to exhibit this fabled “pregnancy glow” I’ve heard mentioned.

Phil and I went to see Southpaw this weekend. I loved it. It’s one of those movies I find myself still thinking about even days later. I love a great comeback story that involves several, sweaty, athletic montages - especially one involving boxing. The movie had me Googling boxing classes until I realized it’s probably not an approved prenatal exercise. So I settled for downloading the soundtrack and walking in the rain while recalling a sweatier, more active time in my life. Clearly, those two things are practically identical. 

With the return of regular exercise and REAL food, I’m starting to feel good again. Like, circa summer 2013 good. And I say “real food” because I really can tell a difference between when I eat processed versus not-so-processed. The latter is also the determination in whether or not I lose weight (or maintain in this case.) For me, I can count calories or WW points all day long, but won’t really feel or see a difference unless I change the quality of my food. I know that’s not the case for everyone, but it works for me.

I suppose I should actually get back to work instead of procrastiblogging. It’s either that or nap, and sadly, only one of those pays the bills. (Side note: how awesome would I be at professional napping?)

It’s incredible the ups and downs you can go through… look, in the end we have a common passion, something we love, something… we are very different people, different guys, but we share a great passion and that is what drives us. I think the love for racing is bigger than anything else. It was a tough start, a tough week, obviously with Tuesday, and then to think about Jules again on the grid - certainly very emotional and difficult to get back in the rhythm. But then you find yourself back in the car, visor down and there are so many things you have to think about there’s not really much space for other things. I guess we do what we love to do, what we have to do. Equally mentioning Senna’s record is something incredible. I don’t know how to put this in words. I think nevertheless today is for Jules and his family. I think that’s bigger than everything else.

Top 9 Influential Books!

Anon asked me if there is a book that has influenced my view of life, or that’s had a huge impact in my life. There are so many books that I could mention, but I’ll try and keep it short.

All the books above have had a lasting effect on me. I think I read them all at a very important time, and they have definately shaped me into the person I am today. I won’t go into the specifics today about how they influenced me, but they are all amazing, and I would recommend every single one of them!

//Love from L

You bash the Koran but the Bible has equally misogynistic things in it too. 1 Timothy 2:11-15 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 Titus 2:3-5 Ephesians 5:22-33 1 Peter 3:1-22 And you don't say anything about that!

You should check some historical context on those. I will give you some credit for only referencing new testament verses, most go for old testament laws. However I think looking at some explanations (and context of surrounding verses) might help clear some of those up for you. 

But firstly, it never mentions beating your wife (in fact it says to love your wife as you love yourself and respect her). It also doesn’t devalue women in public life, only saying that they shouldn’t speak in church. Now I don’t agree with that in today’s world at all, but…

here’s the thing, you know why I don’t say anything about this? Because I have yet to see a country where it is legal to prevent women from gaining an education because of something written in a 2000 year old Bible verse. I don’t see there being a rash of abuse, child marriages, honor killings, or women being punished for being raped as a result of Biblical teachings. 

I do however see that as a result of Islam.

I rode my new bike today and it was awesome! I am digging this bike station in downtown Tigard, what an adorable town. This morning I met with a couple of people from Tigard’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and was given a tour of the existing trails and discussed additional off road cycling opportunities. Stay tuned, there is some exciting stuff happening in Tigard. Have I mentioned how much I love my job? #bikeadvocacy #westernbikeworks #tigard #mtb #cannondale #giro #sombrio #girlriders #ridesdg #rideoregon #rockshox http://ift.tt/1MPmUB0

We had our one-on-one meetings with the workshop mentor today and mine was maybe the most encouraging conversation I have ever had with another human being

He identified everything I try to do well in my work as my strong points without my having to mention anything, and said he thought I’m on the right track with developing my artistic voice and gave me some recommended reading to continue in that direction

I ranted about my love for Gerard Manley Hopkins and he told me that if I stay on my current track he could legitimately see me writing like that by the end of my career, and I almost cried right then and there

I KEEP FORGETTING TO MENTION THIS but 2 of my campers this session are named Melanie and Nora. Melanie is a sweety sweetheart, the exact opposite of the RWBY Melanie (though we also have a set of twins, but Melanie is not one of them).

But we were making s’mores today and Nora is just like “Can I have more chocolate? Oh! How about marshmallows? Are there extras? I’d love one. I need more chocolate.”

She’s literally Nora and it’s great.

[ I really love my outfit today tbh.

Anw I have so many likes, these don’t even begin to cover it, like Kingdom Hearts and Gayle Forman Novels, Cherry Cola and waking up early and my friends and family (but those go without saying so didn’t mention that) and certain music like Rock or Taylor Swift and etc.

I couldn’t think of many dislikes because most things I don’t dislike enough to mention and others require long rants of explanation but these will do for now, also black licorice candy and broccoli, I really don’t like those ugh. ]
