i spent time on this because of reasons

Stop wasting your time with individuals who aren’t really all about you. Stop trying to force connections that aren’t all there, or telling yourself that maybe the reason love isn’t happening for you is because your expectations are too high. It’s not unrealistic to desire a partner that is attentive to your needs and wants, and who puts in the effort to not only get to know you, but keep you happy and feeling secure. Don’t compromise the things you value in a relationship for people who keep missing the mark. Your time could be much better spent. Some day someone is going to walk into your life and make you realize just why you should never settle, and they will be so bold and clear with their love that you’ll never have to think twice.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: Kageyama Tobio is still haunted by his experiences at Kitagawa Daiichi, even after all this time. It's only recently been made clear just how terrified and traumatized the ordeal left him, and apparently we still haven't seen Kageyama at his strongest because it is very much implied that he has spent this whole year holding himself back from communicating freely with his teammates at Karasuno for fear that they’d abandon him for reasons he didn’t understand
He asked me if I’d go back if I could, if I’d do it all again, with his forehead pressed to mine, with his tears sliding down my cheeks. “Yes,” I said and his body shook with every unsteady rise and fall of his chest. Sympathy and pity alike tore at my heart. He still saw the good in me. He always would, no matter how many times my words hit him like a punch to the jaw, like a knife to the throat. No matter how many times I’d change my mind. He’d never understood that I didn’t want to stay. That I wasn’t one to stay.
“The only reason why I’d do it again is because it made me who I am today. The nights I spent lying awake, tossing and turning. The times I debated whether or not to call you. That hollow feeling in my chest when it was over all of a sudden. Leaving you on your doorstep with tears in your eyes hurt me as much as it hurt you.” But I don’t know how to be different, I added in my head, I don’t know how to stop running. I took a step away from him and wiped his tears from my cheeks. Then I did what I did best. I ran.

God I’ve spent enough time on this now. Painting is one of those things where I never feel like I actually finish it… like you could go on forever refining things and adding details. Anyway, this is like semi visually metaphorical and semi literal.

So I’ve kind of talked about this before with this one but I really like the idea that Mob grows into being a leader, not intentionally and not without a great deal of awkwardness, but because he does the right thing for the right reasons regardless of what everyone else is doing. So quite by accident, much in the same way he accidentally became a shadow leader, he finds himself becoming a central figure in keeping the order, a balance point for all the people that try to do wrong. And I love the idea of the other three, all of which are much more naturally inclined to be leaders, deferring to Mob and happily being a part of his inner circle (even Ritsu, he’s smiling on the the inside). Though Mob insists there isn’t an inner circle because there isn’t… whatever this is.

Ahhhhh, i would love to talk more about them like this, but I won’t do it in this post.

So, today was a snow day and I was able to work on Fragile Design, including ironing out some tricky plot points (thanks to @optomisticgirl for her wonderful thoughts and encouragement).  Now, I’m sitting here and thinking as my husband makes dinner (yes, I’m a lucky girl) and I need to write something short and sweet and involving no major plot other than references to potential impending storylines to come.

(also I’ve spent the past week re-immersing myself in @msgenevieve447‘s writing and loving every minute of it…this is an ode to her as well because she’s one of the people in this fandom than inspired me to write and I owe her much for that)

This little drabble is based on one of my all time favorite Captain Swan conversations, a piece of which is below:

PokéSpe Week Day 3: Arc

Ruby and Sapphire Arc

This Arc is fantastic.

It features two of the best Pokédex holders:

Ruby

Sapphire

The story revolves around a bet that Sapphire had with Ruby.

Sapphire has to collect all 8 Hoenn Gym Badges in 80 days, while Ruby has to collect all 20 Contest Ribbons in 80 days.

Part of the reason I liked this Arc so much was because of the relationship between the different characters.

Ruby and Sapphire started out as rivals, but when they spent time with each other at Mirage Island, they began to get closer and developed crushes on each other.

Ruby had a very complex relationship with his father. He ran away from home because he and his father had radically different opinions on Pokémon Contests and Battling, but after they fought at the Weather Institute, Norman finally (sort of) accepted his son’s different opinions.

Overall, I think this Arc is probably the most interesting Arc in the series.

like he performed yesterday and it was a very good performance but somehow they couldn’t just talk about it and how he felt and what he thought or what they’re doing professionally like any other artist interviewed in radio, no sir!  the first question they just HAD to ask was how the birthday was, as if 1. someone cared outside the fandom 2. someone wanted to know outside the fandom 3. the thing was relevant to the reason why he’s guest on a radio with steve, the interview lasted 6 minutes and they spent like what? 3 talking about his son??? wow!!!! from someone who asked privacy and keeps saying his time with his son is low-key and precious and ‘paps just see us cause they come with my job’, I would expect to blacklist the topic or for the hosts not to ask anything (because i doubt any radio host is actually interested in louis tomlinson’s baby birthday unless they are told to ask) and YET this baby has been the most important and main topic of every single interview since promo day 1, the one that is always always guaranteed and the one that every publication writes about and then mentions in just one line that louis also has a song called just hold like FIY, not that this important, you know? and some people think it’s all normal and never ask themselves why this is happening.

03.18.17 // update

as some of you might have noticed, i haven’t been very diligent with the march study challenge. i’ve been overwhelmed by schoolwork as well as complications in my personal life, and i just haven’t had the time to post very much original content (a lot of it was old photos oops). i’m probably not going to be completing the challenge unfortunately because of the aforementioned reasons. thank you to everyone who has supported me w/my high school acceptance/rejection deal and everyone who participated in my blogrates (it was a lot of fun!!), and just all you lovely people in general :3

on brighter note, i’m currently on a four day weekend (though most of it will be spent at competitions and tournaments) so i have a bit more time to work on my notes. i actually really like how this post turned out; when it was just the two pics on my phone not together, it was pretty boring but they go really well together.

i know i’m kinda far away from 1k right now, but i was just wondering, would you guys be interested in me revealing my face, sort of as a thank you for your support? tell me what you think!!

i spent most of my time at work today arguing with my coworkers that bigfoot is a woman and their only reasoning against it was because she’s large and hairy ummmm bitch me too ? And ???

The reason why I love Jacob so much is because for me he represents us. He didn’t know about magic before he stumbled into this world by accident and shortly after he spent some time in it he is captivated by the people and the wonders in it.
I feel like he was a gift to us from JK Rowling because we all grew up with the Harry Potter universe and spent quite some time in it but after the last books have been published and the last movies were filmed we forgot about it bit by bit. Of course we still had it in the back of our mind, like Jacob has his ideas for the bakery but not until Queenie walks in again and takes him back into her world, we finally return with them.
So this might sound ridiculous but for me Jacob’s and Queenie’s relationship and romance resembles our love story with the Harry Potter universe and us muggles who are allowed to return once again with JK Rowlings permission.

He leaned against my car with a lit cigarette in his mouth and I hated people who smoked, but for some reason with him it didn’t matter how much second-hand smoke I breathed in as long as I got to spend time with him. 

I spent time with him at work, outside of work when we went to dinner and hung out with our friends. I cherished every moment we spent together because I didn’t know how long it was going to be before my mom said I couldn’t see him anymore.


But here’s the thing about this boy, he was a total badass with deep brown eyes that overcame me and made me want to be with him.


I was the cigarette and he was the lighter we fit together perfectly, but had the power to kill. I didn’t kill though. He attempted to burn me down to nothing, but a cigarette butt.

—  excerpts from a story i’ll never write #14 

It is precisely 1:52pm, and James Potter has switched his desk fan on.
Lily Evans resents this for a number of reasons, the first of which being that she’s always cold in the office. Always. She still insists on wearing tiny little business dresses every day, because she and Mary spent far too much time (and money) excitedly picking them out when she got this job, but that takes nothing away from the fact that she gets cold. He knows she gets cold. And does he care? No.
At the very bottom of the list of reasons why Lily Evans resents James’ desk fan (and really, it’s insignificant compared to her deep freeze), is that every time it blows her way, she gets two nostrils full of aftershave, and she doesn’t like that at all.
“Oi, Evans,” he says, as if on cue.
She closes her eyes, still facing her monitor, breathes in strength and patience and fucking aftershave.
When she looks around, he’s grinning his lazy grin at her, leaning haphazardly against the back of his office chair, gangly limbs everywhere. “Did you want to borrow my jacket?”

MAYBE THE REASON TRUMP SUPPORTERS DON’T LIKE PROTESTS IS BECAUSE THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW TO PROTEST.

a new trending tag #BoycottHamilton from conservatives after the cast of Hamilton gave a message to Pence after he attended a show. 

Like conservatives were gonna go see that show anyway?!?!?!

also… #TrumpCup

Trump supporters get their Starbucks drinks under the name Trump as a f*ck you to the coffee giant. But Starbucks is still getting their $5-10 per cup anyway?!?!?

I think you guys spent too much time learning the second amendment to know how the first one works.

no offense but unless the show says otherwise, the only reason i could see why we spent so much time on BD grieving and YD comforting her was because it was also supposed to be added to a list of bad things Rose has done.

except its not bad. she did the right thing. the gems even said so.

so why did we spend so much time on this lmao we learned n  o t h in g

every person that says bunnies are ~boring animals~ and just “sit there” are people i get annoyed with and 99% of that because it is people that have put bunnies in a tiny cage and never spent time with them or let them act natural and judge them based on that… A bored neglected animal… Like the amount of people that also come and describe their rabbits like “He is more like a dog than a rabbit, he follows me around and sit in my knee and lies down next to me!” is so common, like, no. That’s rabbit behavior. The reason you think otherwise is because so many people take terrible care of their small animals that they are completely misrepresented.

like this is more or less true with all tiny animals I just see it more with bunnies

I DON’T hate Robert Sugden

I just can’t! I’m not happy with what happened on Thursday, I don’t think anyone is, but here’s the thing. For me, I just think the writer clearly isn’t great at writing for Robert. I personally feel like the actions were out of character for who Robert is now. However, I also feel like, they must have done this for a reason. Preferably that reason won’ be to have a stupid pregnancy storyline.

I was struck by what Chas said to Robert in last night’s episode. It was basically bringing back all of the things that Robert fundamentally believes about himself. I’m hoping that this is happening because they plan to address the issues Robert has, because he DOES have issues that he needs to deal with.

Robert changed for Aaron, and I love that he wanted to do that. But when I think about it, Robert has spent all this time helping Aaron through his stuff, that he hasn’t actually dealt with his own. I think it’s important that he does. 

There was wrong on both sides on Thursday night, they were both hurting. I think we need to remember that Robert has been trying to do everything by himself. It annoyed me that Chas went from telling Robert how hard he’s had it, how he’d taken on so much, to saying he was never good enough etc. Because that’s exactly what Robert was thinking himself. He felt like he wasn’t enough to keep Aaron going in jail.

I won’t excuse what Robert did, I would never try. BUT, I love his character, and I love Robron, I can’t give up on them. I don’t know how they’re going to fix this, but I have to believe they will somehow.


Also if you badmouth Ryan Hawley I will end you. Just saying.
