i have told the truth

REAL TALK

Do not judge that which you don’t understand. I have received some negative criticism over some of my posts. We are all unique and our taste will not always match someone else’s. This is My journey NOT anyone elses, and it is about exploring my desires and thoughts. Truth be told I have spent time getting to know some people and I’d be lying if I said I loved everything they post. Actually quite the opposite. But guess what? I find the people to be charming and wonderful. I would never dream of telling them anything hurtful about their likes. Perhaps that’s just me. I’m still new and learning how things work around here. One lesson I have had to learn real quick is you have to have thick skin. I’m am not perfect and I am going to make mistakes, more often than not. So for those who follow me because they like what I post please forgive me for any posts that have offended you. For those who simply don’t like my posts at all, please move along somewhere else. I’m not interested in drama or negativity and your comments are very hurtful. I have learned that some people can never be happy in life because they are not happy with themselves. I did some soul searching yesterday and made a decision. I will be true to myself from here on out. If I step on your toes then so be it. I am looking to meet new people who are loyal and won’t judge me or condemn me. To the few people I have already formed a close bond with thank you from the bottom of my heart! You have accepted ME for who I am flaws and all, and although some of you have not always liked what I post you still continue to encourage and support me. You offer your guidance and your opinion in a very respectful manner. I appreciate that and take all of it into consideration. Please let’s all take a moment to pause today and reflect on how we treat other people. The bottom line is that the majority of us are all here for the same reason; to explore our sexuallity and our dreams and desires. I challenge you today to reach out to someone else and show them some love. One kind word can actually make someone’s entire day. I speak from personal experience. For now I will simply be me. Thanks again to my peeps who are always in my corner!! I got your back always!!!! Peace!! Xoxo

I always lied to you and asked you to forgive me. Deliberately keeping you at a distance by my own hand. All because I didn’t want you to get caught up in any of this. But now, I believe… that perhaps you could have changed Father, Mother, and the rest of the Uchiha. If I had been open with you from the start… and looked you straight in the eyes and told you the truth, then I wouldn’t have had to stand before you, from above, as a failure, telling you all of this. So this time, I want to impart this truth to you… You don’t ever have to forgive me. And no matter what you do from here on out, know this… I will love you always.

*curtsies* you seem like a 'take no shit' person so I beg you, how do I stop being so sensitive? Today my Drs secretary kept laughing at me and made me feel stupid/crazy and I cried for 30 minutes curled up in a ball. The smallest thing sets me off.

*Curtsies* So, this is something I actually really struggle with in other people. My mother and one of my close friends from college are both extremely sensitive. I’m really not; I tend to bounce back quickly from fights and slights and get on with the day, and I don’t know why that’s easier for me to do than it is for someone else. (Probably because I’m selfish and I don’t like being mad about anything for any longer than I have to, truth told.) But the biggest things I struggle with in communicating with super-sensitive people are that (1) they take everything personally and (2) they can’t let anything go. Some of the things people have taken personal offense to absolutely astound me, like mentioning to my mom that I had a really horribly long wait at the doctor’s office (which she perceived as somehow aimed at her because she had recommended the place). Another friend once burst into tears, walked out of a restaurant where all our friends were hanging out because I wanted to know what to do with a bunch of stuff she’d left at my house (which she perceived as being a criticism that she hadn’t cleaned up after herself; it wasn’t, I just genuinely wanted to know what to do with her stuff). 

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m emotionally obtuse and could have said something in a hurtful way without meaning to, but I also think it’s a bit dangerous to always assume that what another person does is done deliberately to hurt you. Because what I’ve found in these kind of situations is that nine times out of ten it’s actually just a misunderstanding, where intent and impact don’t align. So. Maybe it would be good to step back and try to ask yourself whether the secretary is actually laughing at you, or if maybe there was just something funny about the situation, or if maybe she was just trying to be friendly, or if maybe she was nervous and that was why she laughed. Human behavior happens for a lot of different reasons and assuming that it’s always meant to do you some kind of harm is a hard way to live. The best take-no-shit advice I can offer here (because that is what you asked for) is that next time something like this happens, stop and ask these questions before you get upset: 

  1. Is this really about me or am I making it about me?
  2. Am I possibly overreacting?
  3. Is there a way to clarify the situation?

That last one is really key. I can’t tell you how many fights could be avoided if people just stopped and said, “Wait, what did you mean by that?” But here’s the other key component: If the other person says, “Oh no, I wasn’t laughing at you at all,” you have to actually take them at their word. Give them the benefit of the doubt, because if you don’t you’re going to spend a lot of time weeping about insults that never actually happened, and they will have no idea what they’ve done wrong (and will feel terrible without knowing why). Communication is key. 

Hope this helps.

Champagne Raspberry Kit Kats

Truth be told, I have not been digging most of the fancy flavors the Kit Kat Chocolatories in Japan have been releasing recently. However, this month’s new Connoisseur concept, Champagne Raspberry, is a winner!

I love the clean, simply illustrated package design!

For this boozy berry flavor, Yasumasa Takagi, the patissier who creates these special Kit Kats for Nestle Japan, took his inspiration from Epernay, France, the capital of Champagne production…

Like other berry flavored Kit Kats of the past, I expected the actual candy bars to be pink…

Only I opened the package to discover they were made of dark chocolate…

Quite a surprise…

However, when you broke one open, the “raspberriness” was evident inside…

While I usually avoid dark chocolate at all costs, using it here was indeed the right decision, as its bitterness plays perfectly against the sweetness of the raspberry and champagne. It’s one of the most beautifully balanced Kit Kats I can recall eating in a long time.

Champagne Raspberry Kit Kats are currently available at all Kit Kat Chocolatory locations across Japan, but I’m afraid I can’t tell you for how long.

when we met, i told you
i would be better.
the best you ever had.

but there are days when I am too tired
to be anything but small under the pillows.
there are so many days when the sun is out
but my bones feel like rain.

when we met,
i should have told you the truth.

that my back hurts
under a lifetime of questions
and i often say leave
when i mean please don’t go home yet.
i should have told you about
how i’m friends with my depression
and i am not sure i want her to go away.

i should have told you the truth.
how i’m not sure i can always be the person you met
and i keep getting lost on the way to better,
but maybe you’ll say it’s okay.
maybe you’d like to stay anyway.

Imagine 

You nearly growled at your husband as you sat just to the side of him. His hand had already crumpled the parchment though he had barely looked at it and you were want to rip it out and force him to read it closer. Instead you bit your tongue and listened as his deep voice carried through the air, though it did nothing to calm your ire.

“It is completely out of question,” He dropped the paper and swept the air with his fingers, “Let’s not waste valuable council time on–”

1) @muhensai : Thank you so so much for your kind words <3! We’re super happy to hear that, it’s always so flattering to know we can inspire others! It’s not spam-ish at all, thank you again : )

2) Anon: Omg thank you!!! We’re always super happy to hear people notice these things ;; Thank you for reading it! 
As for the studies: I’m REALLY honored you’d want to do studies off my art. Truth be told, I still have no idea what I’m doing 80% of the time and I know i have a lot to learn. I wouldn’t want you to accidentally pick up my mistakes in the long run. I’m not stopping you, but maybe it’s better to study some master painters I look up to? 
Here’s a list of some inspirations:
Alfred Joseph Casson, Stepan Kolesnikov, Frank BrangwynDean Cornwell, Heinrich Lefler, Mikhail Nesterov, Viktor Vasnetsov, Ilya Repin

Sunday Reading

Today has been a good day filled with reading, cups of Japanese green tea, and snacking on roasted seasoned seaweed.

I finished the book, A Man Called Ove, which I highly recommend if you’re in the mood for a touching story that will make you laugh and cry. The next book I’m about to crack open is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Truth be told I’m beside myself having read a book! It’s been ages.

What I hear in this CS Dramaz:
  • Emma: What-What are you doing?!
  • Hook: I can explain! I'm ashamed of myself for not telling you the truth. Y'know, because you put me in such a tight spot by finding the ring-
  • Emma: You could still have told the truth!
  • Hook: But I've already lost my family once! It isn't fair! How could I sit across from your parents-
  • Emma: HAVE YOU MET MY PARENTS? THEY FORGAVE YOU FOR MARKING THEM FOR DEATH LAST MONTH!
  • Hook: But...but what about you-
  • Emma: SAME AS THEM!
  • Hook: But-
  • Emma: WE HAVE TO STOP LYING TO EACH OTHER!
  • Me: Oh my god she SAID IT.

anonymous asked:

I have kind of an odd question about the Snk universe. Do they have showers and toilets that flush?? Or do they shit in like buckets and bathe in... honestly I cant even imagine how they'd bathe without running water in that castle HQ haha. enlighten me pls

You’re asking the real questions, anon. 

DISCLAIMER: This is my personal opinion. In no way am I stating what I say here is entirely canon or completely accurate. if you disagree with my opinion, that’s perfectly fine! Everyone has a different point of view, but if you are going to send me messages trying to argue point of views with me, tell me I’m wrong, or send me hate messages; do us both a favor and please just don’t even bother.

Truth be told, I have no idea, but if I’ll try to make some decent hypothesis’. 

I do not believe they have running water because in a lot of background scenery, you see they use in home wells. Not faucets. As far as toilets, I imagine they either use outhouses or chamber pots. Outhouses seem like the more likely option considering there would be FAR less smell and cleanup. As far as showers, I’d say they either stand under water filled bags that drain slowly (people still do this off the grid in a few areas of the world), or take baths in prefilled metal tubs ( this would be the more likely option ).

I’ll try to do more research on this subject and write a meta about it. I’m actually quite curious about this subject as well.

Earlier, in the morning, your manager said that it’s been a while that they’ve known about us cohabiting. It must have been hard to hide it. You should have told me the truth. Then I would have… Then I could truthfully do something good. Ending it like this is okay too. All those times, it must have been hard on you because of me. I thought that we could just live together like this forever. But I was mistaken. It wasn’t possible.

anonymous asked:

I'm so happy SOMEONE is just as upset as I am about this proposal. I'm always an optimistic person but this was such bs. Killian should have told her the truth. I would have rather the proposal be put on hold than have that. They did all of this for the sake of shock value. Emma didn't have to find the ring. He could have come home, come clean, and they'd get through it because she knows he's changed. Idk. I feel so robbed. This was THEIR moment and the writers fucked it up.

I feel robbed too. I wanted to be excited about it, I really did. But last ep and this one…it’s all manufactured angst. The man fucking DIED. She went to the fucking Underworld to rescue him. He came back from the DEAD. The time for this kind of manufactured angst should be past. This was the time to really dig into who Emma and Killian are, what they want for their future. Not rehash the past, the same old character beats.

Eddy literally said they only find Killian interesting when he’s angsting about some past terrible thing. I think that’s a gross injustice to his character.

So apparently I am damaged goods

Yes, that is what I’ve been called.

I am a single mother to two children (age 7 & 8) both with the diagnosis autism and ADHD, I don’t have a social life since I work and care for my children 24/7 more or less.

I hardly have time for myself since my children are my top priority, and then my job comes after that. I rarely have anyone to babysit because truth be told, no one wants to babysit my kids because of their diagnosis and they have period of times where they are uncontrollable because of their anxiety tantrums and whatnot.

I don’t have time to go out and spend the day at a café and gossip about god knows what, I don’t have time to go out for a drink on Friday nights, I can’t take the kids into town because I don’t own a car and I have to go on public transportation with them and both of them gets either winded up or anxious when there’s a lot of people around. On more than a dozen occasions I have had to get off the tram because my son flipped out and threw a huge tantrum because someone was either too close to him or sat in a seat he wanted to sit on.

I am very limited in my life and when I try to explain that I can’t do certain things because I have to care for my kids, I get the look. The look that says “why do I even bother with you?”

It had resulted in being excluded in a lot of things. And the latest thing now was that I wanted to at least try dating because maybe, just maybe I could meet someone that might be patient and understanding.

Yeah I was majorly wrong.

Conclusion of it all, I am damaged goods (I was called this) because no sane and normal person wants to wait around or take a chance with a single mother of two kids with diagnosis when she doesn’t even have time for herself. People don’t want people like me that comes with baggage.

I’m not gonna wallow in this and I don’t need pity or anything. I just wanted to vent and say this.

Yes I am a mother but I am not damaged goods. I work my ass off to keep my little family together and make sure my children have what they need, I work hard to keep them happy and able to function in this harsh and cold world. I am sacrificing a shit ton because I am a mother, because that’s what a mother does. We put our life second ALL. THE. TIME. Because it means we put our children’s needs first.

Don’t call me damaged goods because I’m damn stronger than you think.
