it's so beautiful in real life


“Saroo’s character is incredibly torn, because he’s got this wonderfully loving family in Australia that he is completely thankful for and is at home with. But he’s also riddled with guilt that he’s living this privileged life when his family in India could be out there on a truck still searching for him. At its core, it’s a story about the love between a mother and son, and how that can transcend continents. I’m a real mommy’s boy, so I wanted to make it not only for myself, but for my mom. And I think it’s rare to find a film that will bring a lot of joy to the world, like this one will. The script was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read.” 

genietothemax  asked:

how did you and toby meet? alternativly, how did you and Hussie meet?

toby and i met on the mspa forums but we met IRL for the first time uhhhhhhhhhhhh i guess he was staying at my house while he was visiting the west coast?

during that same trip i met andrew who just happened to be in town. it was kind of a whirlwind of a weekend.

toby, our friend, and i were headed to AX since a lot of our friends were in town for that and i live a train ride away down in long beach. this is before undertale so nobody cared about toby (at least not in the way they do now) so we were trying to cross the street to the convention center and our friend turns around and says ‘wheres toby’ and like… in the middle of the street surrounded by literally thousands of anime teens we’d lost him. 

after looking around, using our natural height advantage (i’m 6′3″) over the cosplaying children we spotted him back on the corner talking to a mysterious shadowy figure. We go back and were like what gives toby you scared us but he’s like oh, yeah he just _________ (FACTCHECK EDIT: andrew says he “grazed his arm with his claw”) 

I look, trying to see beyond the suspicious hoodie and sunglasses and its none other than andrew. this was my first time meeting him. apparently he just HAPPENED to be there at that exact moment and he just HAPPENED to see us and instead of drawing attention to himself (homestuck was still going on at the time) he just reached out and grabbed toby.

anyway we hung out a bit and he had somewhere to be but in the evening he texts us and asks if we wanna grab drinks after he finishes up with a meeting he’s havin at this place. We agree and underestimate how far it is and how hot it is outside at dusk in LA and we walk to the place. its about a mile and a half uphill and we’ve been at a convention in 95 degree weather all day and we arrive just like… moist, you know?

the place is………… extremely upscale. I realize I’m wearing shorts and a fucking homestuck hoodie, toby is wearing a misprinted sbahj shirt and his now iconic bright red pants and our friend is dressed in like.. a track suit. We show up and obviously are getting some looks but andrew flags us down and says he’s almost done so just to hang out at the bar and then we’ll all grab a table.

We go to the bar and to the left of us, i wish i was kidding, was a beautiful woman in what i’d describe as an evening gown talking to a guy dressed like a fucking boat captain. I thought they might be cosplayers but no they were literally just real life rich people. I turn to our right and i close my eyes thinking “please be some anime teens or something” no luck idiot its like some impeccably dressed business men. I realize how out of our element we are and i think oh god we are in some bougie LA bar for fucking boat captains and im wearing a sweaty hero of space hoodie we need to order a drink before we get kicked out.

I’m no stranger to bars so i order my usual “liquid confidence” (shelf bourbon, double, neat) and they card me. I’m like… in my 30s so this is new and i realize they probably got a bunch of anime dweebs in here this weekend and its like oh ok w/e n..o…..………………………………………… and i realize i’ve left my ID at home. I desperately change my order to a diet coke and nervously laugh and look at our friend and mouth “OR-DER SOME-THING” and she says to the bartender and “I’ll have a water.”

my attention shifts to toby. I look at him pleadingly, my mind racing. please order something toby. we were foolish to think we could mingle with the upper class, but please, i beg of you and i’ll never forget him saying “mmmmmmmm I’ll have an appletini” the bartender looks at us like with just… the utmost disgust. The bartender literally put my receipt IMMEDIATELY into my cup. not next to it, not underneath it. literally IN my fucking cup of ice and gives me a can of fucking diet coke.

anyway about five minutes later andrew was like hey ok got that table and i couldnt be more relieved. wow this turned out to be really long.

some pisces can be really fretful and on a sort of panic brink. they can become nervous, jittery, reactive, and unsettled. and they can become overwrought by issues beyond their control, like warnings they overhear on the news. socially, they are very much go with the flow. they are flexible enough to fit in just about anywhere. it’s almost like they have been there and done it before. they are pisces, so they probably have before. venus exalts in pisces so friends are beneficial influences and socialisation can be very inspiring. the chameleon can also be an escape passage. they can be a different person. but it doesn’t take long for the alarmist to reappear. pisces can be so easily provoked by their immediate environment that it makes them jump at shadows. it can generate constant, underlying apprehension that causes them to instantly scan their environment for threat or peril. there can be many players that hand this card to pisces. neptune and jupiter co-rule pisces. neptune soaks dream through everyday life, conducting fantasy, glamour, and illusion. jupiter blows the giant balloon of disproportion. so this captivating neptunian imagination can be fooled by its own hand and fantasise catastrophe instead of beauty. it creates worry rather than peace. it can be difficult to dissociate reality from unreality with neptune. jupiter further embellishes and reinforces these worries, expanding and expanding until these seem very real and possible. it’s kind of in the way that pisces can make you concerned with things you hadn’t thought about before. it’s like a pisces trying to be grounded but losing it completely in the process. it’s essential that one fish never swims too far from the other, and they don’t separate these parts of themselves. when they conduct the instruments of their two world’s together it’s purely heavenly

You weren’t exactly sure how you managed to find yourself in this predicament, hands held at the small of your back, wrists overlapping each other as a much stronger hold pinned you in place.

You grumbled all the way to the art gallery, adamant in your opposition to being dragged there by your roommate.

“Shut up, we’re already here. Are you going to brood the whole time?” Liz glared at you before pushing the glass doors open.

You’d pouted, clearly having lost the battle a long time ago. You settled on folding your arms defensively and letting out one last exasperated sigh. “Fine, but I still don’t know why you brought me here to begin with.”

Liz’s eyebrows shot up at the absurdity of the question, “You haven’t left the house for anything besides work and the occasional run. You’re starting to get boring, where’s fun Y/N?”

Her words only made you pout further because she was completely right-like most of the time despite your inability to admit it to her.

Saroo’s character is incredibly torn, because he’s got this wonderfully loving family in Australia that he is completely thankful for and is at home with. But he’s also riddled with guilt that he’s living this privileged life when his family in India could be out there on a truck still searching for him. At its core, it’s a story about the love between a mother and son, and how that can transcend continents. I’m a real mommy’s boy, so I wanted to make it not only for myself, but for my mom. And I think it’s rare to find a film that will bring a lot of joy to the world, like this one will. The script was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read.

I don’t want to be swept off my feet. My god, I want someone to collide with me. I want to be knocked off my feet, to be under their weight and be engulfed by everything they are. I want to be look up into their eyes that make the sky its greatest enemy, rivalling its beauty. I want the breath to leave my lungs in the most suffocating way and when I breathe it back in my skin burns and flowers are sprouting in my collarbones with life that’s never been there. I want to be held so tightly that I can no longer tell where they start and I begin. I want lips to wonder over my neck with no real purpose. I want laughter to be the loudest echo ever heard, I want it to reach the rays of the sun and fill a warmth in my heart I didn’t know existed. I want hands to draw patterns into my skin with an ink only I can see. Let the world watch on as I become a poet with no purpose and 1001 feelings.

MONSTA X Beautiful in Chicago Summary

Hey you guys! It’s around 1 A.M and I’ve just gotten home from the concert and let me tell you- it was honestly one of the best nights of my life.

SHOWNU: He’s such a big papa bear , you all don’t even know. He was so sweet and respectful to the audience when speaking with us. He was the sweetest smile it makes your heart want to flutter just seeing him. He covered Hyungwon’s lines with perfection and I couldn’t be more satisfied- he did an amazing job at that , I was so proud of him. OH AND HES A DANCE MACHINE OML HE CAN GET DOWN.

WONHO: I DONT KNOW HOW ANY OF US SURVIVED “FROM ZERO” BUT WE DID. WONHO DID AN AMAZING JOB WITH THAT SONG I NEED AN ITUNES VERSION PLEASE. During the end of “Shine Forever” he fell backwards while doing one of the dance moves but it was so precious , no one really cared. His voice is more powerful than I thought and it really took me by surprise. He had adlibs here and there and they were wonderful. He’s also the king of fanservice, he be grabbin’ people’s phones and kissing their cameras. Dang do that with me too.

MINHYUK: Soft bunny. Cute bunny. Fluffy bunny… until he starts dancing. His hips sure don’t lie , damn son. His energy always sent good vibes through the crowd , he was always getting everyone pumped and making us laugh . About half way through the show he joked around and said that the song they were going to sing was the last one , which flipped everyone out . He quickly apologized and said “IM SORRY. IM STUPID IM STUPID” IT WAS SO ADORABLE , HE SPEAKS ENGLISH QUITE WELL, THEY ALL DO . He’s a ray of sunshine that radiates positivity and rainbows. He has a gorgeous smile, it’s so contagious.

KIHYUN: When Kihyun first opened his mouth, his voice sent chills down my spine, it was insane. You guys HAVE to hear his voice in real life , it is truly something else. He , in my opinion , is one of the best vocalists in K-POP (please don’t kill me). I could listen to him sing all day, it wouldn’t bother me . Like I said with Minhyuk, Kihyun’s English is really good as well. “WHEN I SAY ‘Ki’ YOU SAY ‘Hyun’”

JOOHEON:He is truly one of my favorite rapper’s in the K-POP scene. The tone quality of his voice is really nice and the timber is as well, it’s different from any other rapper out in the industry. When I first saw Jooheon up on stage , the first thing I said to myself was “Wow, he is just so charismatic ” and you guys, HE IS. He has that fire in his eyes that will lure you right in. He’s such a cutie in real life. One moment he’s showing his dimples and passing out chocolate but the next he’s hip thrusting you into next week. Like I said before, his English is superb. “Chicago is best”

CHANGKYUN: can we all just take a second to appreciate how beautiful this man is in real life. All the MX boys are beautiful but I always had a special place in my heart for Changkyun but when I saw him tonight he actually took my breath away for a while. Wow. This man is real. Just like Jooheon , the tone of his voice while rapping is so addictive and different from any other rapper which is what separates him from the rest . He was the one I kept my eyes on during the concert. “We went to the River walk in down town its was so beautiful but… I lost my wallet ” MY BABY CHANGKYUNNIE AGHHH


I’m so lucky and fortunate that I got to see my boys live, they’re all so beautiful and each one of them deserves the world.
P.s- I got a monsta X official light stick today . Said again, one of the best nights ever

4.5/5 Stars.

I’m in awe of Roxane Gay. If this collection had gone on forever I would never grow tired of it. It contains the depths of the human condition in all its darkness, loneliness, quirkiness and indecency.

These are stories about people (mostly women) seeking to fill their hollow spaces however they can. They’re gritty and direct and real and utterly devoid of sentimentality. Gay’s characters accept life for what it is—all its ugliness, all its complexity—and there’s something strangely refreshing and comforting about that.

The subject matter is demanding and unrelenting; this is not a happy collection, though it’s by no means maudlin. Being human isn’t pretty, but there’s beauty in that. If that statement resonates with you, so too will these fierce, gutting stories.

“Ugh, isn’t she just dangerously hot?“

Lifting your head up from your book, you looked at the boy sitting in front of you and rolled your eyes when you saw the expression on his face. In front of you was sitting none other than the Jeon Jungkook, most popular boy of your school, every girls dream boyfriend, the buddy most guys want and lastly; your best friend.

Following his eyes, you turned your head to your right, realizing that he was gawking on the popular transfer student called Sana. Turning your head back to your best friend, you slightly leaned over the table and placed your hand under his chin, closing his mouth with a disgusted face. “I can almost see your lungs, Jungkook.“

Snapping out of his trace, he turned his head to you and slapped your hand away. “I’ve never seen someone so beautiful and hot looking ever in my life, Y/N.“

Rolling your eyes again, you took a deep breath and focused back on your book. “You sure? Because I can bet on my car that I’ve heard those same exact words coming out of your mouth only a few days ago. What was the girls name again? Hana? No, wait. Hani?“

“Yah!“ Jungkook slightly shouted as he shoved your head with his forefinger.

Shrugging once, you snickered under your breath and started taking notes for your shared project.

“Y/N, I think this time its real..“

The moment you heard those words, your whole body froze, your knuckles turning white as you gripped the pen forcefully. Looking up with widely opened eyes, you connected your eyes with his, the shy smile on his face and his shiny eyes being the reason why you couldn’t breath properly. “W-What do you mean?“

Averting his eyes shyly, he chuckle left his mouth. “I think I like her.“

Bang! A shot right into your heart!

You could literally feel how your heart broke into pieces, the pen falling out of your grip and meeting with the floor in seconds.

I think I like her.

Only when you felt Jungkook’s warm hands on your cheeks and saw his with concern filled eyes, did you realize that you were actually crying. “Y/N, hey, what’s wrong?!“

Closing your eyes, you took a deep breath. 

Not now, Y/N.. Not in front of him..

Forcing a wide smile, you opened your eyes again, grabbing his hands and squeezing them. “Finally, Jungkook! Do you know how happy I am right know! These are happy tears, you dumbhead!“

The concerned expression on your best friend’s face vanished immediately. Furrowing his eyebrows, he yanked his hands away from your hold and hissed. “Yah! You scared me! I thought you were crying because I said that I like Sana! For a second I thought you had feelings for me!“

And another shot!

“Pfft! Me and having feelings for you?! I would rather die, you idiot!“ You said as you tried to control your voice from shaking.

“I know right! I can’t even think about the possibility of us being in a relationship. We would kill each other!“ Jungkook said with a laugh.

Averting your eyes down to your lap, you loosened your hands when you saw the crescent shaped red marks in your palms, the forced smile vanishing immediately.

“You’re right.. We should never have feelings for each other.“

Reaching out for your book, you closed it and tucked it into your bag as you tried to hide your hands from your best friend. Suddenly, you felt Jungkook’s hand wrapped around your wrist. “Where are you going?“

Pulling your hand out of his grip, you stood up. “My class is going to start in a few minutes. See you later.“

Just as you were walking past him and towards the door, you felt two arms being wrapped around your body, making you freeze on the spot. “Yah! How can you leave like that? Where is my kiss, hm?“

Shutting your eyes tightly, you tried to stop your tears from forming in your eyes. Turning around slowly, you looked at his pouting face and leaned forward, placing a little kiss on his cheek.

“Can I go now or-“

Just before you could end your sentence, he leaned forward and nuzzled his head in the crook of your neck, placing a soft kiss on your exposed skin. “I’m so glad that you’re my best friend, Y/N-ah.. I never want to lose this friendship!“

“Me too..“

“Lets make a promise!“


“Lets never fall in love with each other, okay? I don’t want to lose you. Promise, Y/N?“



I’m sorry, Jungkook. It’s too late.. I already broke the promise..

A glimpse of French music

A bunch of people asked me what french music I listen to and if I could introduce them to french music, i’m sorry if i took so long but I wasn’t sure what should I say, but I think i’ll just introduce you to my favourite french artists

The first one is actually from belgium but he’s quite popular in France, and I love his music and this artist so much, his name is Stromae

Quand c’est  (link) a beautiful song about cancer and its victims, very sad but very poetic

Tous les mêmes (link) In this song he breaks and fights against gender roles and clichés

The second one is a french rap band, with the two artists Orelsan and Gringe, what I love about this band is that their texts are not like so many french rappers’ texts, about drugs and sex and violence, but about real life matters and problems, and their texts are also very poetic. The band name is Casseurs Flowteurs 

Inachevés (link) is about their need of doing great things but feeling demotivated and ending up doing nothing, but finally realizing how they must achieve things by finishing their song

06h16-Des histoires à raconter (link) is about insomnia, the lack of self-confidence and regrets (and the music video is soooo beautiful)

Funfact: Orelsan is a huge anime fan and was chosen to dub Saitama from One Punch Man in the french version (an extract from the dubbing session)

I hope this will be useful and interesting for some of you!

If you’ve never hung out with me outside a big group and you want to be friends with me, I probably don’t trust you. Hahaha. This has happened to me several times recently where people are freaking me out with how interested they are in getting to know me when we legit have never hung out, some of them I don’t even remember meeting??? Does anyone relate to this? Idk I’m also just realizing how skeptical of a person I am and it’s served me really well in making friends, it’s my natural tendency and it’s part of my personality and it really helps me weed out who I can and can’t trust. My friendships are rock solid and last a lifetime ‘cause once I’m dead sure about someone, I’ve already taken the time to for realz get to know them and I know their heart and I KNOW I like them. Not everyone operates this way and you shouldn’t do it if it doesn’t serve you but it definitely works for me.

That’s another thing, I’ve realize I’ve had such a hard time in dating and I just put it together that I’ve just ditched my skeptical nature entirely and I keep jumping in way too fast, letting myself fall for people I know hardly anything about. What the frick!! That is so not me. So now I’m trying to be less trusting to improve my love life HAHA. Seems very counterintuitive but for me its the right thing to do.

Anyway I’m just realizing this about myself and wanted to share. I really feel like I’m growing up and shaping my priorities and I finally not only WANT a good relationship but actually believe I can have it. It felt so impossible before I didn’t even wanna try but things have really been changing for me and all these good influences and examples are coming into my life and giving me real hope. And the more I get that hope the more I wanna share it with the world because it is so beautiful and life changing and seemed completely impossible before I encountered it. I wanna take you guys on this journey with me and I hope it helps others the way it’s helping me ❤️

To you, Yondu was a force of nature, untamed and impossible to shake off of the solid foundation he always walked upon. And yet, here you stood next to Kraglin, watching through the ship’s window how Yondu saved Peter and let himself suffocate in the vacuum of space.
