“The Korean word that I loved the most since I started learning Korean after coming to South Korea in 2009 was ‘Woori’ (meaning 'We’). But I wonder if 'woori’ applies to someone like me of color. When I tell people that I’m from Africa, I get a lot of startling questions like, 'Do you grow a lion at your house?’ I get it so often that now I just respond by saying that my father has two lions. That’s how much Koreans are unknowledgeable about Black people and Africa. I tried to sit in an empty seat and an ahjumma (middle-aged woman) took the seat, outrightly discriminating against me by saying, 'What is a black thing doing here in Korea? Go back to your country’. What hurt more was that the other Korean people just sat there and watched. It made me wonder if Koreans just watch foreigners without helping them in difficult situations. Often, people in Korea call me 'Black Hyung’. I want people to call me Okyere hyung comfortably, or Okyere dongsaeng, or just Okyere without referring to my skin color.” - Sam Okyere

You counted your steps as the heels of your sneakers hit the ground. For reasons unknown, you woke up in the most bubbly mood. You didn’t allow yourself to question it too much, though. Having a happy day was rare, and you were going to soak it in while it lasted.
“One, two, three, four,” you mumbled, clicking your right heel against your left toes. “Tell me that you love me more.” You smiled as you remembered the song you used to sing before everything changed. You busted out in a fit of giggles. “I can’t remember the words.”
Carl smiled at you with his eyebrows raised. “What’s up with you?”
You shrugged your shoulders, pouting your lips at him. “I don’t know. Woke up in a good mood.”
Carl chuckled and shook his head, grabbing your hand in his. “Good. You deserve a nice day.”
“Carl and (Y/N)! We need ya up here,” Rick shouted. Carl kept his hand holding yours as you two sped up your pace to meet the rest of the group. You had reached a large white building which you had been able to see from a distance. Windows decorated all six floors, if you had counted correctly.
Groans sounded from inside the building, and it was clear to you that the building had not been cleared. Or maybe it had, and they weren’t able to defend themselves. Two barn-style doors with cardboard covering the shattered glass rectangles stood rockily a few yards ahead of you.
“Daryl, get that crowbar and get that door open. (Y/N) and Carl, get on each side and open the doors. Let them out three or four at a time, and we’ll take them out in waves. Let us know if you get tired out and we can rotate,” Rick ordered. You all assumed your positions and successfully cleared out the walkers nearest to the doors.
“Stay together, and be careful,” Daryl warned. You followed Carl in one direction while Daryl and Rick went another. The halls were dark, so you held a flashlight in one hand with a knife in another.
“I think this hall is clear,” Carl said. You nodded in agreement, for you hadn’t seen any walkers or people at all since you cleared out the entrance. You giggled again, finding the hair that stuck to the front of his hat hilarious in your loopy state.
“What is it now?” Carl asked with a joyous sigh.
“Your hair looks so cute like that,” you told him. He blushed a little, but shook his head and took his hat off, shaking his hair out before placing the hat back on. “Now why’d ya do that?” you asked, stealing his hat and placing it on your own head.
“Because I wouldn’t want to distract you,” he wittily replied. “I know you can’t keep your eyes off of me.” He kissed you quickly, only to take his hat back. He turned away from you and continued walking down the hall.
“You have a nice but,” you said blankly. Carl turned to you with his eyebrow quirked.
“Alright, (Y/N), what the hell are you on?” he asked, laughing at your state of carelessness. “I think we could all use some of whatever the hell it is.”
(this got so out of hand, but) OMG liv ( @hoteldumorts ) and i were actually talking about it like consider:
- aline coming to the institute and the first thing she does is give alec a big hug and tell him that everybody’s heard of what he did and she’s so proud of him for coming out
- aline telling alec about helen and how much she likes her and how she’s so nervous to tell her or ask her out or do anything. alec actually giving her really good advice and her feeling much better after talking to him
- and now i have to quote liv on this bc it was hilarious: “I’M LAUGHING BECAUSE ALL I CAN SEE IS ALEC AND ISABELLE LIKE WATCHING ALINE FROM AFAR APPROACH HELEN LIKE THIS IS IT AND ALINE GOES HI AND HELEN TURNS AROUND AND ALINE JUST BLURTS OUT YOU COME HERE OFTEN AND ALEC IS LIKE SHE’S KILLING IT AND ISABELLE IS LIKE NO. BUT HELEN LAUGHS AND THINKS ALINE IS ADORABLE AND THEY TALK FOR A BIT AND SCHEDULE A DATE"
- alec told magnus all about aline and when they first meet he feels like he already knows her and he helps her get ready for her date with helen and they hit it off pretty quickly
- which results in magnus suggesting they go on a double date
- so they go bowling and aline teams up with magnus and helen with alec so they can get to know the other’s s.o. better
- and at the end of the night both aline and alec are like ‘they are amazing i love them you did great!! *gay high five*’
- them being present and the other’s wedding 😩 yet another quote by liv to make you emo: ’ALEC BEING THE FIRST PERSON ALINE TELLS WHEN SHE AND HELEN GET ENGAGED AND ALEC JUST HUGS HER AND LIFTS HER OFF OF HER FEET AND TWIRLS HER AROUND’
- ‘ALINE ASKING ALEC TO BE BEST MAN AT HELINE’S WEDDING’ rip
- obviously alec and magnus each giving speeches and everybody crying in the club including myself (magnus doesn’t mention the fact that alec also cried like three times before they even got there)
- alec being so happy for aline (and also tipsy) that he doesn’t leave the dancefloor almost all night and twirls magnus around until they both need a break
- also, while we’re on the subject, alec going up to the two brides and asking aline ‘may i steal your wife for a dance?’ and aline losing her chill internally bc ‘OMG HE’S RIGHT SHE’S MY WIFE’, but answering with a very collected 'then i shall go steal your husband’ and so they switch
- alec telling helen while they’re dancing that he’s so glad they found each other and that he knows she makes aline the happiest he’s ever seen her and helen is like 'well you have to take some of the credit bc it’s your advice that pushed her to ask me out in the first place’ and he starts laughing when he remembers
- also aline giving pretty much the same speech to magnus on the other end of the dancefloor and magnus telling aline how proud he is of her for coming out and putting her own happiness first and how it’s so heart warming to see how it all paid off
- and everyone lives happily ever after while i cry in a corner goodbye
As you know I've been a fan of your work a little while now. Just wanted to let you know I still enjoy all your gifs, photo's and quotes everyday! Have a great week!
Awww… thank you so much. I appreciate it a lot. I thought nobody was going to continue reading my blog 😂 because I no longer talk about Cait or Sam private life… that’s why messages like yours give me so much happiness. Thanks, hon. I hope you continue reading my sillyness 😘❤
Oh my god. Your accent challenge. So great. The way you say piper like pipe-ah is so cute. And that thing about grover's quotes is so true. Also, "I'm a daughter of Athena. Well, *hand quotes*" WHAT ARE YOU NOT TELLING US??!? Thank you so much, your laugh is the cutest thing I've heard and your face and smile are so beautiful. Just thank you I enjoyed it so much!!!

And when you see those good things–and I promise you, there are so many good things–they’re going to be so much brighter for you than they are for other people, just like the abyss always seems deeper and bigger when you stare at it. If you stick it out, it’s all going to feel worth it in the end. Every moment you live, every darkness you face, they’ll all feel worth it when you’re staring light in the face.

This was the kiss he’d been waiting for. It was a gunshot. It was a prairie fire. It was the spin of Makker’s Wheel. Jesper felt the pounding of his heart–or was it Wylan’s?–like a stampede in his chest, and the only thought in his head was a happy, startled, Oh.
