Are you looking forward to entering Heaven? :')

Can I be honest? I’m not looking forward to it nearly so much as I wish I were looking forward to it. Not yet.

I read this quote that convicted me asking if we as Christians are really waiting to be reunited with Jesus in heaven to be with Him, or if we just want to go there when our love affair with this world has ended. That really struck me because it’s true, at least for me. 

How easy is it to hold onto this idea of securing our spot in heaven so that after we’ve lived a long and full life here, maybe 80 years give or take a decade, we’ll just go chill with Jesus? 

That’s not right, though. That’s not what the Christian faith is all about. It’s not “losing your life so that you may gain it” (Matt. 10:39).

So, I want God to change my heart in this way, too. I desire to be the kind of man who longs for Jesus and heaven whenever that may be and through whatever circumstances that may occur. Maybe it won’t be in 60 years after a long and happy marriage while sitting on my favorite mountaintop to soak in the vista one last time before dying peacefully in my sleep, but I want to be eagerly working for and anticipating my reunion with Jesus no matter what.

Live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenager years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go out for breakfast. As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. But as an eighty year old looking back you have that breakfast with your dad. It’s just little things like that, that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making choices you won’t regret.

I Love That Kimber/Stormer Is Canon! But Did You Have To Erase The Bisexuals Again?

Kimber had many boyfriends before she hooked up with Stormer, it’s a fact.

"Here’s a not so secret fact about me: I am, and have always been, a huge Jem and the Holograms fan. I was just the right age in the 80s when the show premiered, I was already big into Barbie, and I loved to sing. So a show about rad singing ladies with a talking computer who went on adventures that I could play out on my living room floor whenever I wanted to was pretty much guaranteed to be my favorite.

When the first set of DVDs came out [….] watching them with fresh eyes brought up a lot of questions I hadn’t asked when I was a kid. Questions like:

How did the creators get away with writing a whole episode about a romantic relationship between two women?

Yes, I’m taking about The Bands Break Up where both Kimber and Stormer feel so unappreciated by their respective bands that they flounce, end up in the same bar, discover that they make a good musical team, get involved in some scheme involving Eric Raymond, and end up falling in love.

As a kid I don’t think I picked up on that last bit. But it’s really obvious to me now.

I mean, that moment after the Holograms and Misfits come to confront them and Stormer says “The Misfits just want to exploit me. At least your group cares about you…” and the way Kimber says to her “I… care about you, Stormer.” I MEAN MY GOD.

Plus, there’s that whole thing where Stormer has a picture of Kimber by her bedside.

When I first had this idea I posted on my Jem fan mailing list (hush) asking if I was the only one who noticed this. Oh, Internet, I was so naïve then. Because of course everyone had noticed this — Kimber and Stormer were one of the most popular femslash pairings in the fandom.

This is likely why Jem comic writer Kelly Thompson was very excited to confirm that “Kimber and Stormer are gay” and that they will get a romantic relationship. Yes! And they won’t be the only LGBTA+ characters in the world.

I’m all for this. I just see one little problem here: Kimber is not gay.

And no I don’t mean The Term Is Lesbian because we know what she meant. I mean that if we accept that Kimber/Stormer is canon then that means Kimber is bisexual.”

90% of the time i feel like an 80 year old woman who’s lived a lot of life stuck in a 21 year olds body, and all of the kiddos out there are my grandchildren and i just want the best for all of them

I’m not remotely saying that there aren’t times when we move away from friends, get busy, become interested in other things, or whatever. But I feel like a lot of the posts that go around talking about “shout out to that person you love but you haven’t talked to them in 3 years but when you do it’s like you never stopped, I love that person! uwu!!!!!” are really just about making people feel better about not taking the time to communicate with those they claim are important in their lives. We get, what? 70 or 80 years? If you aren’t making time to talk to the people you love, then what the hell ARE you doing? Move on if you want, but why try to romanticize the fact that you don’t prioritize your loved ones?

Question for Mun: My area is having its first anime festival this year and I really, really want to cosplay Grell (just for an excuse to make the chainsaw! lol). Anyway, the problem is, I live in Louisiana. And the festival is in July. I can easily expect triple digit temperatures and humidity in the 80-100% range. Do you have any advice for a Louisiana summer friendly costume variation?

(( I wish you luck! *chuckles*  Any of Grell’s outfits are going to be death in the summer, just because that wig is a beast.  It is so hot, and so heavy x_x

Last summer I walked in a parade dressed as ‘Classic Grell’. We had to stand around on the hot asphalt for about two hours before walking the parade rout, which took an hour it self. Dear gods.. I thought I was going to die x_x  With no one to reap me but myself… lol.

So, I definitely feel your pain!

All I can really recommend is that you remain inside as much as possible, with AC. Drink a lot of water to stay hydrated, and maybe take off the red coat from time to time if you start feeling overheated.   You can also, if you wish, put together your own take on a ‘casual Grell’ cosplay, that might be a little more summer friendly :)  ))

Y do u think we as humans try so hard in life when we r just gona die in the end and all of it went for nothing?

Because we are too obsessed with power and success and very much afraid of failure.
It’s a bit sad and it always gets to me; just disappearing all of a sudden.
I will tell you a story about my great grandmother: she had four kids that she raised on her own in a time where things weren’t completely amazing in Iran. She had so much power, respect, and so many people relied on her. But her kids grew up and moved out and started their own lives (the usual). She got Alzheimer when was 80 and her kids had to take turns to take care of her but none of them truly wanted to do it except for my grandmother. None of her other kids wanted to make time to take care of their mother who spent so much of her life time on them. I remember her telling me how she wanted to travel the world but she never did. She spent her life taking care of the people she cared for most but at the end most of them didn’t want to make a little bit of time to take care of her. She eventually passed away and it’s been almost 10 years since then and she is slowly disappearing completely. Everything she worked for, everything amazing she ever did in her life time, all the impacts she made on people’s lives; all of it is just being forgotten and disappearing slowly.
And I find that quite sad but it’s life and that’s how it works.

But do we truly do all of this for nothing? What would you do if you weren’t actually trying in life? Nothing. That’s quite boring and you would became very depressed if you lived that way. No one can live that way.

Hey dude! Just wanted to say i absolutely adore your blog. Thanks for the nostalgia of my early childhood years!

Thanks and you’re welcome. Long live 80s cartoons

You know I really adore these 80’s movie posters (like the Drew Struzan, Bob Peak ones). I wanted to do some fake posters for PotO and maybe some other favorite musicals or movies of mine. But right now especially Phantom! I made the first concept sketches over a year ago. And I just started a PotO poster.

Tbh this post probably makes this sound bigger than it is because it’s just me fanarting in my free time and hoping to learn some nice stuff about composition and color scheme while doing so. (Also for some reason I really want cool posters for ALW PotO) Well, I’m just happy that I finally managed to start that, no matter If I do more than one or two of these.

I'm freaking out! I had to get surgery today and they weighed me before(with my clothes on and shoes and coat)and I was 180 when I got down to 169 6months or so ago when I could exercise and stuff i still been eating healthy I'm just not as active since I've had health issues and I've gained so much I'm so depressed and feel so gross but I'm still eating healthy j just need to workout again but I wont be able to for ahwile I'm just so scared I'll gain all my weight back I already feel so gross

my dear health and recovery is top priority! it doesnt help wanting to exercise when you shouldnt be bec if you do you’ll cause so much damage! just know that once youve healed up all nicely you can so easily get back into the swing of things with regards to exercising. besides, you eat healthy which is 80% of living a healthy life style so dont stress. for now give yourself some lovin and be grateful that you’re alive and well and breathing. 


I wish we could live life like an 80’s movie,
A life where it’s just us against the whole world,
One day you’ll wake up to me holding a boombox,
Outside your window just like John Cusack.

I want to be your Judd Nelson,
Meeting on one of our stolen Saturdays,
Where we get to know each other for the first time,
So I could fall in love with you all over again.

I’d skip my day of class just to pick you up from school,
To take you out on my day off just like Matthew Broderick,
Singing on a float and eating at a posh restaurant,
We can have fun all day and just forget the world.

We could be like McFly and Parker,
Passing through time in my DeLorean,
So we could go back and experience everything again,
Only to be cautious not to ruin both of our futures.

But you and I, we’re already living our own John Hughes movie,
Kissing you in the car underneath all the stars,
Observing the neon city and its petty people,
With Def Leppard’s Hysteria playing through the stereo.

bloodstone, diamond, emerald, peridot, ruby, and turquoise ♥

bloodstone and emerald are already answered ♥

diamond: how important is money to you?

Like, for myself, it’d be super important. One of my goals is to have enough money one day to be able to go on vacation once a year ;A; 

But I don’t really look for money when I meet people. I don’t care tbh.

peridot: how old do you want to live to?

As long as I am healthy and independent I guess? I’d love to be as healthy as my grandma at 80. Yeah 80 sounds nice.

ruby: what kind of love do you value the most?

Hmm I don’t really get 100% how this question is meant but I value platonic love a lot. Like really deep platonic love and if I feel that for somebody and have the impression that they like me aswell I just can’t lie to them anymore. Which means I get sad more easily but yeah. I value people that are honest to me and show that they appreciate me I hope that answered the question.

turquoise: how often do you lie?

Ah not that often anymore. I don’t even make up stories anymore when I forgot homework or anything. Maybe when I break something at home and know my mom would be furious. Those little lies.

You have this big struggle with money and your "wedding" but you bought a new DS and a Surface?

Brandon bought a new ds and I got his old one.
We decided together that financing a surface would be beneficial to me with me feeling so cramped at my desk and so unhappy at my job/needing to work on my portfolio. We can afford the price of one over a year.
The thing about our wedding or literally any wedding is that you need to pay for like 80% of the costs with cash. You can’t charge catering or venues. Having that kind of money up front is hard.

We NEED a car, I need a way to make a living without being miserable. We don’t need a wedding. We want a wedding. But we have other priorities. That doesn’t mean we aren’t bummed about it. Just because I’m no longer scraping together pennies for rent doesn’t mean that something as expensive as a car or a wedding is easy. But a couple hundred dollars is easier and not so scary.

Also why is my wedding in quotations? I literally posted pictures of my engagement. It’s a thing.
