i just thought that was a great quote

anonymous asked:

Did David already say something about 13 actually?

Yeah he’s made a few comments about the casting at sdcc:

“I’m very excited! I’ve known Jodie for a long time, and I got an inkling that this might be the way it was going. I spoke to her and she’s just so excited and so up for it. She’s a great choice, it’s gonna be magnificent. I got a phone call from her just before it became public, and I thought, why are you calling me, is this what I think it might be…? So yeah, it was exciting.”

“Well, I know Jodie very well, I’ve known her for years, and I can’t think of a finer choice, I’m very excited. Because she is a great actress, and that’s what that part needs; the better the actor, the better the show. And Jodie is one of the best actors working in Britain right now, so I think the show has lucked out.”

“…Doctor Who, another show with a strong female lead…” * 

* according to Radio Times, he said this last one during the Call of Duty: WWII panel at sdcc, but I just watched it and didn’t hear it. Not sure if I missed it or if there’s a different panel RT was referring to.

I’m one of those people that can’t let go. If I’ve had fun with you once, I will text you on your birthday for at least the next five years. If we were friends in elementary school and haven’t talked since, I guarantee I still know your mom’s name and your favorite food. My crushes never go away, they just fade. I still tell stories about great times with people I haven’t seen in years. If you turn down my offer to get drinks and catch up ten times, I promise I will still ask an 11th time. If we fight and you block me, I will find a way to check in on you anyway to make sure you’re okay. So if I give up on you, just know that you damn well deserved it.

—  ma.c.a // I want you, more than anyone else
She was something else, she always had been. She was the kind of star that you couldn’t see with the naked eye in the night sky. She was bold and quiet at the same time, she was unique and she was destined for greatness.
Nothing we did was common. She liked theatre, wine and finer things in life and I was a pleb who liked video games, computers and cheap beer.
I always knew that she would go on to be more than what this town could offer, but what I didn’t anticipate was just how quick and deep I would fall for her.
And god I knew. I always knew she was not the type to choose love. She aspired for great things and love just never was a priority, neither was I. She aimed for the stars and goddamnit I knew, I knew all about her ambitions.
I don’t resent her, not anymore anyway. She had her priorities and I had mine. She chose fame; while I was the type to choose love.

Here, this is my heart. I’ve spent quite a lot of time putting it back together. I’m sorry about the cracks. Some people weren’t that gentle with it. Sometimes I wasn’t gentle either, but I’m getting better at it every day. I don’t really like having these protective walls up, but my past wasn’t great. I’ve knocked them down just to build them back up stronger than before every time. That’s become exhausting, but you’ll be different from the rest, won’t you? You won’t take this love for granted, you’ll cherish it, right? Right?

“I love you,” I whispered softly.

“Then stay,” he whispered back.

“You aren’t my future,” I told him, my voice suddenly loud in the quiet room.

“I was, though, at one point before all of the heartbreak and lies, I was your future,” he reminded me.

“No,” I corrected him, “I fantasized and dreamed that you were my future. Even when you lied and hurt me I love you so much that I imagined this is what the future would hold. We would have great love and greater heartbreak, but that’s all it was, fantasies and dreams. You were never committed enough to be my future. It was just another thing you lied about and I believed.”

so i saw this quote in some angsty gif set earlier

“this is great

 just the three of us. 

You, me… 

and this brick wall that you built between us.”

and when i read it i thought that was the deepest shit ever. i related to this quote so much. how many times did i feel like this when a relationship ended? how many times have i seen a wall built between two people who were once close? experienced the wrenching pain of separation after times of being so close? I was completely moved by it. it was something straight out of charles dickens. i’m completely floored. then i realized. its spongebob. its from a fucking spongebob episode. when he ate the pie bomb and was supposed to explode at sunset.and squidward built an actual fucking brick wall to protect himself from the explosion. i hate this website. i am. deleting. we all deserve to. burn

  • <p> <b>Dick:</b> *compares skin tone to Jason's* You're pretty pale, Jay.<p/><b>Damian:</b> *also compares* You really are.<p/><b>Jason:</b> Yeah well it's kinda hard to tan when you're dead.<p/><b>Dick:</b> ...<p/><b>Damian:</b> Huh. I would have thought the hell fire would've given you some color.<p/><b>Jason:</b> *throws Damian across the room*<p/></p>

I thought that it might be helpful to share my annotation key! I use this system all the time for my college reading, and I find it super handy in that it’s simple, uncluttered and easy to use ✨ This is especially great if you don’t like copious amounts of highlighting or you’re using a library book that you want to make as few marks as possible on. I just put small brackets (in pencil!) around the section or quote I want to highlight, and pop the corresponding icon in the margin beside it. This makes it so quick and easy to find what I’m looking for when I go back and review. 📚

Of course, this system isn’t gonna work for everyone (if you’re annotating a biology textbook, I’m not sure that agree/disagree are terribly useful - ‘I wholly disagree that the mitochondrion is the powerhouse of the cell!’) but it’s easily adjustable! The icon at the bottom is my lil versatile one that changes depending on what I’m reading, cause every book if different ❤️ In one book it might denote a definition, in another it might mark important dates etc.

Perhaps someone will find this useful! How do you guys annotate your books? ☺️

seventeen ✗ the office quotes

✎ so i just randomly thought of this and bc it’s my favourite show i though eh why not.


seungcheol: “i feel like all my kids grew up, and then they married each other. it’s every parents dream.”

jeonghan: “occasionally i’ll hit somebody with my car. so sue me.”

joshua: “i signed up for second life [ a computer game ] about a year ago. back then my life was so great that i literally wanted a second one. absolutely everything was the same… except i could fly.”

jun: “wikipedia is the best thing ever. anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject. so you know you are getting the best information possible.”

hoshi: “sometimes i start a sentence and i don’t even know where it’s going. i just hope i find it along the way.”

wonwoo: “i love catching people in the act. that’s why i always whip open doors.”

woozi: “i don’t hate it. i just don’t like it at all, and it’s terrible.”

seokmin: “would i rather be feared or loved? easy. both. i want people to be afraid of how much they love me.”

mingyu: “when i discovered youtube, i didn’t work for five days.”

minghao: “people say, oh it’s dangerous to keep weapons in the home, or the work place. well i say, it’s better to be hurt by someone you know, accidentally, than by a stranger on purpose.”

vernon: “society teaches us that having feelings and crying is bad and wrong. well, that’s baloney, there’s such a thing as good grief. just ask charlie brown.”

seungkwan:  “it’s a real shame because studies have shown more information gets passed through water cooler gossip than through official memos. which puts me at a disadvantage because i bring my own bottle to work.”

chan: “nothing stresses me out. except having to seek the approval of my inferiors.”


I learned many lessons from you treating me the way you did. But I just wish that for a moment I could go back to when I was naive and things were great and I could feel you love me and I could love you without fear and just pure pleasure. Because those days were some of the best days of my life and I miss you. I hope you’re doing better now and everything you have now was worth everything that we had. But what we had will always be valuable to me even if it’s not to you.
—  I miss you
Give me your love by making me coffee when I’m tired, by painting my room’s walls in my favorite colours, by driving me to lonely spots and asking me about the stars. Give me your love by bringing in tissues when I cry, by making food for me at night, by doing my laundry when my head hurts, by writing poetry for me. Give me your love in small doses and give me your love in an honest fashion. I don’t want you to bring me a fancy car, I don’t want you to buy me a huge house. I just want your love in a subtle, fulfilling manner.
Top 9.5 Ways to Beat Writer’s Block

Hello my dears,

Hope you’re having a productive weekend (and are prioritising any upcoming exams over blogging… *nervous sweat bead*). And if you’re not being so productive, fear not! I know writer’s block is a pain - wait… I’ve got a better idea - fun anecdote time!

I once went to an author event, and heard Patrick Ness (author of More Than This, A Monster Calls, etc) say something along the lines of “I wish I earned enough to afford so-called ‘writer’s block’”. If I can find the exact quote, I’ll give it to you. I thought it was a great point at the time. It motivated me for a while, the knowledge that if a writer doesn’t write, a writer doesn’t eat. It worked great… until a few weeks later when I next found my head on my desk as all creativity abandoned me. But writer’s block doesn’t have to stop you in your tracks. Tackle it right, and all will be well, oh fellow author. Here’s my recommendations for how to beat a creativity crash (just thought of that phrase, I’ll admit I’m pretty proud). Anyway!

1. Change your surroundings.
Perhaps the obvious one, but there’s a reason for that! It works! How long have you been staring at that monochrome greyish wall behind your laptop? Is that sofa even slightly comfy? Or likewise, are you too comfy? Do you need a more productive workspace?

2. Take care of yourself.
Again, maybe obvious, but of course you can’t write if you’re dehydrated, or bursting for a pee (you’ve been holding it in for ages as you try to force out another sentence, haven’t you). Eat something, change your clothes, take your meds, get fresh air, have a shower, have a nap! Replenish yourself, you deserve it. This also pairs with the last one, and gives you time away from your writing project. It’s one of those 'it’ll come to you when you’re not thinking about it’ scenarios.

3. Talk about your writing project.
Find a friend, relative, significant other, goldfish, stranger etc. Tell them what’s been going on in your fictitious world. Pitch your book to them. Yes, I know you’re most likely an introvert and hate the thought of this, but your book needs you. And you’ll be amazed how interested people are by the concept of an author. People generally really love to hear this stuff.

4. Read some fiction.
Immerse yourself in somebody else’s world, get to know their characters and writing style, if not for analysis of their techniques then for a bit of fun and escapism.

5. Read some non-fiction.
Specifically on writing techniques. If you know exactly what you’re stuck on, get online, there are hundreds of free eBooks to be downloaded to help you to improve. I hear if you’re stuck on say, prologues, or tense scenes, there’s some great bloggers out there with a wealth of information… ;)

6. Do some marketing.
The other big side of being a modern-day author, especially if you’re self-publishing. You’re never finished. Go and do some networking, design a new advert or look up writing events you might attend. Revise your pre-existing blurb, get the word out about your project. This gives you some reflection time and helps you think about what really matters in your book, and means you’re staying productive.

7. Get the tunes on.
I talked about this in my last post, but it’s still relevant. Play some music, to accompany your writing or simply to listen and absorb some creative vibes.

8. Write something else.
This one’s a bit of a gamble, as it might end up becoming the centre of your attention. Don’t let that happen. Try some flash fiction, or poetry. Write a 2,000 word spin-off scene focusing on one of your side characters, or if story prompts are your thing, go on Tumblr or Pinterest, where there’s a plethora of blogs posting nothing but prompt after prompt. Find one that appeals to you and do what you will with it to get those writing juices flowing (that’s an awful phrase, I’m never using it again).

9. Refer to your outline.
You spent a long time planning this project, detailing plot points from start to finish. Have a read over it and see where you are and where the next big moment is, and assess how you can get there. Or, if your outline is only very basic, or even non-existent -

9.5 Backtrack and make an outline.
Go back a few scenes and bullet point (or making a timeline works for me) all that’s happened recently. All the movements and interactions. Then, skip ahead a little way and write the little things you’re planning for the next bit. Like a fill-in-the-blanks activity. And seriously consider an outline for the rest of your story.

How do you personally beat writer’s block? Any ancient wisdom you could impart? Or has this post helped you reach a solution? Let me know down in the comments!

Take care of yourself,

Hazel. :)
