You know what we’re gonna do? Surrender. I know how hard that is for you because of how hard you hold on to stuff. But we’re just gonna, we’re gonna sit here and we’re just gonna let go. Okay, and let the universe do its thing. And if we’re meant to be together, then we’re gonna be together.

Ways to Cheer Yourself Up (When wanting to be alone) - 50 top things to do
  • 1. Go ON Tumblr, believe it or not, we don't care where you're from, what you do, how you're being you, as long as you are being you, you're pretty much welcomed on here. That's why i love it. Unless of course you are homophobic or judgemental or ignorant - then the people will speak for themselves, we look out for each other here.
  • 2. Read Books; escapism is a wonderful thing
  • 3. Listen to music; and no - not the sad, 'ALL BY MYSELF' type music, but the kickass songs like 'I will Survive' or 'Loser Like Me' just celebrate yourself for being awesome, because we know you are; even if others don't; especially then actually.
  • 4. Become your own superhero. Every single one of you have a talent or a dream. Follow up on that talent/dream. YOU ARE WORTH IT, and you can be whoever you want to be.
  • 5. DISNEY MOVIES. Unless you absolutely hate bursting out into song - better cut of highschool musical and glee while were at this, then Disney is the best pick me up ever.
  • 6. Watch your favourite TV shows. Remind yourself why life can be awesome. Watching your fav characters usually means you can relate to them.
  • 7. Go on walks - it's very pretty outside, and sometimes our heads can be overloaded with information or stress, I advise calming music and a nice walk outside in comfortable clothes.
  • 8. Have a diary. A friend of mine recently bought me one, and it's a godsend because all the anger, or emotions I feel, I try to put in the diary rather than putting it out on others. It also calms you down. I feel better when I write.
  • 9. Speaking of writing...if you enjoy it- WRITE. Writing is a wonderful way to escape. You can put all your emotions into your characters and they just come to life. I tend to do that when I'm stressed.
  • 10. If writing is not your thing then bake. I've actually ironically read in a fan fiction where a character would bake when stressed and try out new recipes, this character tried making butterbeer; maybe be adventurous; have a food blog or something to keep you occupied.
  • 11. Be With Your Pets - Pets are loyal creatures, and they love you, even when you're being a pain in the ass, and I hear they're very good listeners.
  • 12. Now I don't know about you, but I LOVE Musicals. If you are a musical fanatic like me and you're feeling a little down, my dears; listen to those awesome voices, because sometimes we just - need - a break (Also, if you haven't watched RENT, watch it - NODAYBUT TODAY...or Starkid...Starkid make the most funniest musical parodies, even if you don't like musicals I suggest it, and if you're not enjoying their YouTube Channel, then I'll eat my own hat).
  • 13. ASK ME ANYTHING. If you really want to talk to somebody but you don't want to talk to people you know and you just want to get things out, my ASK box is always open.
  • 14. Find a hobby. If you don't really want to talk to anybody, that's okay, sometimes we need to just have some 'me time'. In my me times, I usually deactivate from Facebook, and just focus on things that make me happy. Like; Puzzles, Sudoku, Games, writing, cooking, singing, whatever it is...travelling even. Enjoy yourself.
  • 15. Travel. Maybe being stuck in the same place is the problem, maybe you're head wants to be in a place where it can ACTUALLY THINK.
  • 16. Go Hiking. I suppose Hiking is similar to walking but if you're an outdoor person, this is a great way to clear your head and to feel fresh.
  • 17. Hit The Gym. Or even do your own exercises. I like to walk - do crunches, and I love Zumba. I love dancing. If you love being active, this is also another way to clear your mind from negative things.
  • 18. GO SEE A MOVIE!!! When was the last time you had fun? Even if it's just by yourself. You're allowed to treat yourself. Go, enjoy, be surrounded by people, even if they're strangers.
  • 19. If you like coffee, treat yourself for one at a local cafe. Who knows, you might meet your coffee soulmate in a cafe one day.
  • 20. STOP thinking Negative. Have a Pros/Cons List. Try not to outweight the Pros list with the Cons. Please?
  • You are good enough.
  • 21. Write down a bucket List, and start ticking them off. Having goals and dreams is healthy. If you have dreams, then you have a direction of where you're going.
  • 22. Get help. It's okay, if you're head is in a really bad place to reach out to people. It really is okay.
  • 23. Help others. If you're not sure what to do with yourself at all, be useful to other people less fortunate than you. Volunteer! Work with Charity, Feed the homeless, help the guide dogs association.
  • 24. Smile more. It looks good on you, believe me. Spend time with your guilty pleasures, my guilty pleasure is binge watching glee
  • 25. Please DO NOT go to a pub to drink to ease your mind, if you are going to do that, do it with a friend, or somebody close.
  • 26. Eat Chocolate. Okay yes while society says NO DON'T EAT THE FATTY FOOD. Hey; screw them. If you feel better eating a bit of junk go for it. There's nothing wrong with eating a whole pizza or tub of ben and jerry ice cream when feeling upset - just try not to make TOO much of a habit : p
  • 27. REBLOG YOUR FOLLOWERS POSTS, you might be surprised that you aren't the only one feeling the way you're feeling, you might be surprised by how much you're forgetting that hey - it's gonna be alright.
  • 28. Do something nice for your neighbour. Ah who knows, have you ever actually talked to them? Maybe they might be lonely too.
  • 29. Have a GAMES Night. A very good friend of mine loves Games. If You LOVE Games, then hell have a marathon of them. Play the sims, be in control.
  • 30. Speaking of marathons...dun dun dun - MOVIE MARATHON, I Don't Know About You Guys, But Having A Harry Potter Movie Marathon always cheers me Up. WITH FOOD Of course, and good company, but this is about cheering yourself up, so if you don't want company, that's okay.
  • 31. Draw. I love drawing too. I suppose I'm more of the creative person. There are a lot of different types of people out there, maybe you like solving things - do those fancy cube things Idk what they're called. If you are like my brother and you love Maths, then maybe you can tutor someone. On one hand you're helping someone, and doing something you like doing, just like I'm drawing because I like drawing.
  • 32.Be with kids. believe it or not, kids are the most innocent little munchkins, and they honestly don't care what you look like, if you play hide and seek with them they'll be thrilled, so long as you're nice to them, they're generally nice to you... but be warned, they tell it how it is too. I talk a bit different. The most popular thing they've said to me was "Is that why you talk funny, because of the things in your teeth?" (They've also never really seen braces before) I even had one kid determined to get me to sing 'Everything is awesome' I'll never forget that because this kid clearly didn't care how I sounded, and just wanted me to sing with her. I felt great.
  • 33. If you're into Fairy Tales, Please Please Read Chris Colfer's The Land Of Stories series 1-4. It's an amazing series, and you almost forget what world you're in once you start reading. Plus, there's more coming (I'm a little excited)
  • 34. Watch Pixar Movies. You can't go wrong.
  • 35. GO TO HOGWARTS. Harry Potter Fan? Visit - Platform 9 3/4s in London, or go to the Harry Potter World, or if you can't actually visit these sites, go on Pottermore.
  • 36. Read Fan Fiction, you might not be a harry potter fan, but whatever fandom you are in, believe me sometimes Fan Fictfion Cheer me up. I adore Glee *Don't Judge Me* and Dalton is the best thing ever. Or Little Numbers...or Both. They cheer me up big time.
  • 37. Role play. If you like superheroes or characters, go be with the crowd. I believe they have events like Comic Con, and on Facebook they even have Events for such things, go be with strangers! So long as it's safe of course.
  • 38. Write a letter to the person who inspires you most and send it. You might be surprised by an answer.
  • 39. Pick up your instrument. Don't ignore your musical talent if you do have a musical talent. Remember, you're worth it. I don't care what you've done. Pick, It Up.
  • 40. Maybe go visit your family? I know this is about 'quality me time' but if you haven't seen your family in such a long time or are at a distance. Maybe being surrounded by something familiar is what you need.
  • 41. Change Careers. If you're not enjoying what you're doing or studying, change it. I remember in highschool a teacher said you might change your job 10 - 12 times before getting it right. It'okay, you just haven't found where you're meant to be yet.
  • 42. Enter a competition - Who knows what will come from it, take risks.
  • 43. If you're a risk-taker, challenge yourself. IDK how you're going to do that, but google has some pretty good answers. Even ask your tumblr followers, they follow you for a reason after all.
  • 44. Go on a boat. Go Fishing! I don't know, it's not my thing, but if you like fishing, then hell - go out there and fish.
  • 45. Find time for yourself, are you working too much? Maybe you are working too much. You know life doesn't stop for nobody, and if you keep pushing yourself so hard, time will go so fast and you won't realise how much of that time you could have spent on your own self.
  • The world is not going to end if you treat yourself.
  • 46. You ARE Good Enough. Listen to my words. Sometimes encouragement is all we need, when people feel hopeless, or like everything's gone wrong. It's gonna be okay. I promise, just hang in there.
  • 47. Write Down Quotes that Inspire You. I have a wall of these, and of people that inspire me too, and it reminds me of the good things in life when I'm in a crappy mood.
  • 48. Find something to do. If you're not doing anything, go take up a course, research things that interest you, you might be surprised by what comes from it. Join a community that enjoys doing things you do.
  • 49. Go To The Beach - If you live in Australia like me, visiting the beach is actually really calming and me and my best friend always would go on a random drive, and drive up to a beach or a look out, and it was always calming. Enchanting too sometimes. Maybe we forget about the place we live in, and what's exciting about the place. If you're in New York, visit Broadway or The Statue Of Liberty, or if you're in London, go to the London Bridge, or the Eye, visit the Eiffel Tower if you're in Paris...just go Anywhere.
  • 50. Take a random journey. Go on a train to somewhere new, go on a road trip. You never know what's around the corner.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I just wanted to say thank you for beautiful story about chris and darren as always. I've been around since glee season 3 and never stopped believing in them, but sometimes I do get tired and impatient because seriously, it's been ages. When I was reading this story, it was aching and so heartbreaking because I haven't really thought about what they are going through. When you are in love, all you want to do is being with that person all the time. They are so in love, yet they can't do 1/2

2/2 that simple thing. It’s been years they have had to do this thing. It just hit me so hard while reading your story, loneliness, emptiness, because of fucked up situations. It’s crazy and I shouldn’t say anything because they are going through so much. It makes me so sad and sorry for them. Even at this very moment, they are dealing with all of that. But in the end, they have each other and this time will make them stronger in many ways. Thank you, that’s what I really wanted to say :)

***

Aww dude, thank you.

I know everyone has their own opinions, and this little fandom ebbs and flows over the years, and it seems to be climbing up the tension scale.  But I find that it’s just healthier for me to focus on this side of things. Write my little stories, throw them to the wind, and hope they still make a few people happy.

So thank you for still reading them.

5 years ago today Klaine decided to sing a duet together at Regionals, and it was Candles, by Hey Monday. They practiced, a lot.

“When I look back on Glee in 20 years, it will be the best time of my life for sure. The hardest— the first and second seasons were some of the hardest years of my entire life. And, I’m gonna look back on it with such reverence. I mean, such a… it’s the most marked thing about my life now. To the entire world, it’s what people know me as. It’s kind of like ‘To a dusty shelf, we aspire’, y’know? And this is a pretty cool way to be remembered.”

Rest in Peace Cory Allan Michael Monteith (May 11, 1982 – July 13, 2013)

everything he is

Blaine is depressed.

He said, specifically, that he was depressed; he said it while he’s seeing a therapist, for reasons including loss of interest, motivation, and joy in everything that usually brings him happiness.  It could be more explicit, sure, but I don’t see it as up for debate.

And I know I’ve reblogged several posts about it, but I wanted to make one of my own, and not just rambling in tags.  Because it means so much to me.  Because.

I’ve been saying that I see this in him since the middle/late part of s3.  That’s years, now.  I go to reblog e.g. sp0iler-related fics that I wrote before the season premiere, or I look at my old fic list in general, and I see, over and over again, a line to the effect of ‘warning for depiction of unnamed depression.’  I’ve thought it was there forever, I’ve been writing about and trying to deal with it forever, and yep, it’s real.  So there is a bit of triumph there, ngl, and also a lot of renewed faith in Glee’s willingness to 'go there,’ and just… a lot of feelings.

And because - Blaine’s one of the leads of Glee.  (Arguably the lead for the last two seasons, even, but we don’t need to go there.)  But there’s no way in which he’s not one of the few main characters… and he’s not only a gay hapa boy, but he’s mentally ill too.  That’s important.

And, really, most of all, because.  Because they did this story so well.  Because I was afraid that if Glee ever did really go there, it’d be a one-episode PSA type plot, at least something that’s easy to write off as one, something you’d have to do the mental work (that I always do here anyway in fandom, but that’s another story) not to.  But they didn’t, they never said, they did the absolute opposite of implying, oh, he has depression now, but he never did before.  What they showed is that he does now, and he has the name and is in treatment for it now… and it’s something that very much looks like an extension of previous times on the show when I (and many many other fans) have thought and said he was depressed.

What they did, is as much as they could do without being absolutely explicit about it, (and it probably wouldn’t fit particularly well with the story if they were), is to show, yep.  This is part of his life - a pretty significant part of his life - and it has been for years, for a whole long time that we’ve known him and haven’t known that it’s actually true about him, and possibly for even longer than that still.  It affects his trajectory in the school and work world, his relationships with friends and probably family and romantic partners, it affects how he sees himself and how he learns to deal with things.

And there is also, still, so so much more to him than that.  All of these things are true about him; they’ve all always been true.  And yet, of course, he’s still the boy who loves so amazingly with his whole heart, his partner and his friends and really almost everyone in the world.  He’s still the boy who’s so talented and charming and perfect-seeming until you notice or until he lets you get close enough to see the sometimes cracks in the facade.  He’s still someone with kind of a white knight complex, who tries to be Prince Charming on purpose and oh so frequently succeeds, who it’s so incredibly easy to love back.  He’s still so talented, he loves to touch and be touched, he’s kind of a diva and very definitely a dork.  He can be all of these things, and struggle with depression too, and none of them negate each other at all.

And by making it part of, and integrated into his story like this, Glee shows us that.  Not just with our heads but with our hearts.  And oh I love it so much.
