You ever have that person that’s decided they like you for some reason, that you kind of wish didn’t want to be your friend because they really annoy the crap out of you, but they’re also there for you all the time, when all of your cooler friends have decided they need to be elsewhere, and so you’d kind of be a dick for not returning the affection as much as you can, but they still annoy the ever-loving crap out of you? That’s your Glen friend.
“Chanwoo will take a picture if the members are drowning. Actually, we went to the sea to swim before and I fell into a deep part and was struggling. At that time when Chanwoo saw me, he started taking pictures.” - Junhoe
Do you ever just think about what a massive impact you’ve had on the world? Think of everything that wouldn’t be in the world if it weren’t for you. Your childhood drawings that are still probably still kept hidden in your parents bedside drawer, the beaded bracelets you used to make at Brownies, the countless Christmas decorations and crafts you used to make in school. Think of all the words you’ve put down; the hundreds of thousands of words you’ve spilled your imagination out in, all the school essays and revision notes and lists. All the notes you’ve scribbled to your friends in class, every thank you letter and birthday card you’ve ever written, signed with your very own unique signature. Think of all the hundreds of thousands smiles and laughs you’ve produced in your life. If it hadn’t been for you, the world would be down at least one thousand smiles. All the doodles that have found their way into the recycling bin, all the post-it notes with scribbled messages to your loved ones, all the chalk drawings on the garden path you drew as a child. The meals you’ve cooked, the recipes you just made up as you went along, the cupcakes you baked for all the bake sales. So the next time you feel insignificant, think of it like this- you’ve filled up the world with traces and pieces of yourself hidden in every corner. How can you be insignificant when so much is here just because of you?
yura gets some stretch marks after hitting a growth spurt, he grumbles about it to beka because its just another sign that his body is changing which will fuck up my balance and i wont be as flexible this is awful and other angst and general teenage grumpiness blah blah ,,,
trying to think of ways to make him feel better, beka says, “well aren’t you happy the outside matches the inside now?” yura just gives him a blank look through his computer screen. “you call yourself the ice tiger of russia right? looks like you’ve finally got your stripes”
yura screeches and throws his pillow at the screen but he has to admit that thinking of the new scars as tiger stripes makes him feel like 20.4% more badass than before
