i'm just going to go make some tea

  • hi, it’s me, back at it again w/ the (mostly) non-sexual intimacy
  • I would very much like to discuss soft baths and andreil today bc i had a fucking fantastic bubble bath and i think everyone should have more of them so buckle up my dudes
  • (also we’re operating in a little au in which college dorms have baths bc i do what the fuck i want) 
  • it starts mostly just bc andrew likes to have baths, he likes to sit there for ages in the soapy water and let it relax his muscles after tough training for stupid sports and adds hot water when it gets cold and he is short enough that his whole body can be under water (lucky bastard) 
    • he likes to hold his breath under water and enjoy how everything feels muffled and distant and separate and like nothing else matters for a minute so he usually has baths when he’s having a bad day, with a locked door and soft pyjamas and hot chocolate waiting for when he comes out
  • it also happens in part bc Allison likes two things a lot 
    • 1 - buying things for her friends
    • 2 - lush bath bombs 
  • so she combines this and decides that neil Needs some bath bombs bc we all know this boy is shit at self-care so allison is trying to get him to take actual care of himself bc she is an Excellent friend 
  • one day she comes to visit armed with a bag of lovely smelling stuff, shoves it at neil and tells him to take a fucking bath 
  • neil is sorta stunned (poor boy still isn’t great at accepting gifts but between andrew’s eden’s outfits and allison’s enthusiasm for gift-giving he’s been getting better) and he just sort of mumbles out a thank you and allison gives his cheek a soft pat
  • neil takes them all back to his dorm and lays them all out and smells them all and some are too strong but most of them are so nice and he actually likes the idea of them a lot and makes plans to take an actual bath this weekend for the first time in years

seth meyers appreciation post

not 2 stir up trouble but seth meyers is so underrated & deserves more recognition? like some late night hosts are complacent as hell & walk on eggshells to avoid any potential conflict but seth is just going for it?? he’s spilling that important ass tea and making me proud every god damn day :’))
but wait there’s MoRE!! he’s funny as hell, he gives his amazing writing staff the recognition they deserve (uh, jokes seth can’t tell?!) & he’s all around just super fucking intelligent.
i applaud seth meyers for going where certain other hosts won’t go, and i just rly love him a lot.

anonymous asked:

can we have some Petra/Levi headcanons? I'm. I have a mighty need.

*cracks knuckles*
*whimpers from the pain that follows*

  • Petra makes the best tea. And she gives the best advice and best hugs. When Levi is up doing paperwork, she’d skip going back to sleep and join him ( and since he came from the underground, he’s a slower reader and there are some terms that just make him want to throw the table across the room ). And then of course he’s gonna tell her to go back to bed and snap at her for disobeying him, but instead of being hurt by what he says - because she knows he doesn’t mean it - she’ll breathe, “C’mere. You need a hug.” And before Levi could finish, “I don’t need –” her arms are around him and she’s soft and warm, and Levi just – relaxes. Lets his eyes drift closed, leans back into her, groans lightly when her hands knead his shoulders gently, and he doesn’t see the little smile that blossoms across her face.
  • She brings him breakfast every morning that he’s not in his bedroom, which is quite often since the man practically runs on three hours of sleep and snoozes where he crashes. One day she finds him disheveled, hair a mess, bags under his eyes, shirt halfway buttoned, and she tells him in a tone that rivals his own, “You look like shit”, and he actually chuckles.
  • Levi can rant to her for hours and she’ll give in her piece and make sure to touch upon every topic he talked about.
  • Petra initiates physical affection more often than Levi does, but every now and then he’ll wrap his fingers around hers or pull her close and kiss her because he needs her.

I’m soooo tightly wound right now and I knoooow it’s because I’ve been sitting in my house just thinking and thinking, but I’m too ill to go for a run and I don’t really have time to go anywhere before work. but OKAY I can get through this feeling and here is what I’ll do: right now I’m going to make some tea, and then in 15-20 min I’ll get up and take Pip for a walk in the neighborhood, then I’ll go into work early so I can get some dissertation writing done outside of my house. then I’ll stay at work for a while after and do some fun writing/plot outlining for a little while, and then I’ll come home and take Pip for a longer walk unless I’m feeling like I’m on death’s doorstop.

I keep foam stickers in my backpack to give to people who I think need or deserve one and they’re very colorful and I have an assortment of not only aliens but also dinosaurs and like as silly as it sounds I genuinely want to mail one of those stickers to Dan like I dunno if it would help but he could have a little purple dinosaur or a little green alien to stick on his fridge or whatever and I think that’s always a nice thing

Dan if you’re reading this go buy some foam dinosaur/alien stickers and put them on ur fridge like it’s definitely not gonna solve any of your problems but it’ll look super silly and you’ll feel like a seven year old and it’ll be great I promise trust me on this one I’m a scientist

68, 76 💕

68. can you draw?

this is where you get to watch me flail about trying to actually say something nice about myself, but, yes I can. it’s another one of the things that school made me eventually stop enjoying as much and so I don’t do it all that much anymore which, again, makes me very sad but here’s a picture of a bunny I drew about 2 years ago, I think? and if you go to the my work tag on my main blog there’s a few more of my drawings there too, but they’re all pretty old.

but yeah, I have actually been meaning to do some bap fanart for weeks now and I did start one? but then of course I threw it away 🙈 which is a pretty accurate summary of the relationship I have with drawing/making art in general tbh *sighs*

76. what color looks best on you? 

haha well considering my wardrobe is almost entirely made up of black clothes, I’m gonna say black? I used to wear more colour when I cared more about trends and stuff but now I’ve just fully embraced my inner goth and it’s great. but if I ever have to wear colour I am told I suit red and purple though?

thank youuu for the q’s! ❤️️

Okay, now that I’m thinking… I must be the shame/dishonor of the EXILE fandom… You wanna know why? Well, I keep saving weird pictures just to laugh at them later like…

And notice that most of them are related to Kenchi

PS: Sorry for making this post so long, I’ll just sleep now… Maybe drinking too much energetic drinks and ice tea is making my brain go much more crazy than usual… And I feel like I’m going to lose a lot of followers because of this post…

I heard you give good advice, and I really need it. Long story short, I met this boy. But this boy is clueless and struggles to put in the effort in our "relationship." He drives me insane, but I really like him. And I'm not one to believe in "love at first sight or marriage or anything about love honestly, but when I'm with him I get this feeling that this is the person I'm going to spend the rest of my life with but we fight and I'm just afraid & I don't know if I should stay or just walk away

(( I heard you give good advice; that makes me sound like the village BABA (granny) who gives out advice to the youngsters of today (*゚▽゚)ノ. 

Very well, sit down my child have some tea, grab a piece of cake and let us talk.( ˘ ³˘)♥ Ok~ firstly I have to tell you this - only you two know what exactly is going on, only you two know the details, the emotions, the good and the bad. I can only give you a small advice, but my words and words from any other other person should not lead you to your decision - that is something you have to do on your own, by yourself and then you have to be responsible for that. Ok?(๑•́ ₃ •̀๑) 

 So..my first question would be - have you talked and I mean TALKED not complained, not yelled, not just run by…but really talked about the problems, about what bothers you, about your worries and such? You know most of the time people don’t even know that something is wrong if someone doesn’t tell them, he can’t read your mind and you can’t read his. 

Conversation - is the foundation of any solid and good relationship. Then are your fights small quarrels or big fights, are you both able to apologize and forgive? You see, if you spoke to him, truly spoke to him and tried so many times…and he still doesn’t understand… Well it lies in you. Can you accept him that way? Because people change on their own accord it is not your duty to change them. And forcing someone to change is an absolute no-no! But talking about problems and your wishes and desires is something entirely else. But 

the main question you have to ask yourself; am I happy? Is he happy? Are WE happy? Hope this helped you a little bit. If you both love each other and are happy + can have a good conversation - there should be no problems. But it is in your (his and your) handsฅ(♡ơ ₃ơ)ฅ ))

Alright so since you're basically The Tea God, I was wondering... are sweeteners worse than sugar when it comes to putting it in tea? I have a hard time drinking unsweetened tea, but if putting in sweeteners or sugars harms the effects of weight loss, I'm willing to go ~all natural~. I've seen conflicting articles, so I wanted to ask you! I hope that's okay! Much love. <3

First off, the fact that you referred to me as The Tea God makes me inexorable happy, haha!  <3 

I’m not sure I have the most thorough advice when it comes to sweeteners, since I usually have my tea without (or just go for the honey or brown sugar if I do want a sweetener).  It’s my understanding that there are some sweeteners with lower glycemic indexes than white sugar, the primary one often used in tea I think is stevia.  I personally like the flavor of stevia leaf as is (used to eat them when I worked at a tree farm/plant nursery), but it also comes in a granulated form I think!  I’d personally be sure to check the ingredient list on those and make sure it doesn’t have anything that won’t sit well with you.

If anyone reading this has more experience or better advice, please reblog and add your thoughts!

I've just considered taking my life. I was just in my bathroom holding a good handful of pills. I don't know what stopped me but I'm scared

Go downstairs, make yourself some tea, put on gossip girl or something of the sort until you feel sleepy and then go to sleep. The pain you feel today will be the strength you have tomorrow.

  • you're sick, and he's home with you.
  • (i'm going to do this one a little bit different, more of a description than dialogue- let me know what you think!)
  • Luke: He comes home after a long day of practice, and see's you cuddled on the couch. Both empty tissue boxes and cough drop containers litter the floor. He had been texting you all day asking if you needed him home earlier, but after many refusals he thought you were on the mend. He rushes over and begins to question you. "Y/N if I had known you were this sick I would have come home ages ago, why didn't you tell me?!" You weakly shrug your shoulders as he picks you up and brings you into the bedroom, you protest stating you don't want to get him sick. "Y/N would you just stop it already, get comfortable." He orders you as he kicks his shoes off. "I'm going to make some tea, and then I'm getting into bed. I don't want to hear anything about it."
  • Calum: "What time is it?" Calum rolls over in bed and sees the clock reads 2:04. "Babe you sound awful, please let me take you to the doctor." In between coughs you receptively say no- he knows you despise going to the Doctor's office. "Okay well you just wait here." He hops out of bed and hurries into the bathroom, bringing out a small container you have never seen before. "I have more vitamins, and cough syrups in here than you can imagine." He smiles as he starts to describe how each one works. "Okay babe, so you need to tell me what's bothering you, and we can figure out the best thing for you to take. But I'm warning you, if you aren't better by tomorrow night you're seeing a Doctor. End of discussion."
  • Ashton: "Love! Where are you? Hello!?" Ashton yells as he slams the door to your flat. "Jessica called and said you left the restaurant because you weren't feeling well, what happened?" You begin to explain that it is nothing, just a simple bug and you'll be fine. "You didn't want to worry me? She said you were so pale she tried to call an ambulance for you! How could you not call me?" You apologize but state how you know him and and the lads are working on their next album and tonight was a huge night for recording. "No, Y/N I want to be clear about something. Nothing, and I repeat nothing comes above you. Especially your health. I don't care where I am I will fly home that minuet. Please never feel as though you're bothering me. You're my world."
  • Michael: "Bloody, what is going on Y/N?" Michael yells as he gets out of bed, the sky was still dark as you laid on the bathroom floor. He asks what happened and you said you weren't feeling well, and coughing a lot- that you didn't want to disturb him so you laid down in there. "Well this is freaking ridiculous, I'm not going to have to lay on the bathroom floor because you want me to get a few more hours of sleep. I don't care whether or not I have an early TV show gig tomorrow." He then proceeds to pick you up off of the floor and carry you back to bed. "Now just lay here for me okay? I'm going out to get you something for that cough okay?" You protest greatly as it's close to three in the morning, and ask where he's even headed. "There's a 24 hour pharmacy just three blocks from here. Just lay there for me, will you?"
