Don’t ever forget how hard you’ve worked to get to the point you’re at right now. All of those moments you chose to take the hard path over the easy path; it will all pay off. It truly will. Just be patient.
Don’t ever put limitations on yourself. Most often times, this results in a settlement for less than we are actually capable of achieving. Allow yourself to put in your very best effort, and be proud of where ever you end up. Don’t be scared. Don’t set limits. Just go, and give it your all.
who’d call out your name the same way jaehyun calls out “jeffrey!”
who’d take care of you the same way taeyong takes care of the other members
who’d cheer you up and make you feel ten times better the same way haechan tries his best lighten up the mood in every scenario
who’d make you feel love and appreciated with their sweet words, the same way Johnny encourages the other members as much as he can
who’d hug and cling onto you like a leech for no reason, the same way Yuta hugs WinWin
who’d make your days brighter and much positive with just their smile just like Jaemin’s
who’d put in their every effort and time into the relationship and for you, just like how Mark is hardworking in everything he does
who’s willing to scream and go crazy with you even at their lowest, the same way Chenle always does with his dolphin laughter
who’s not afraid to give you honest opinions and advice, so as to help you improve and do better, just like Doyoung and his straightforwardness
who puts their love for you as their priority, and is not willing to show it off, just like how Kun sets nct as his phone’s lockscreen
who smiles at every word you say or action you do, making you feel confident about yourself, the same way Jeno always does when he watches the other members
who’d be down to do anything with or for you, no matter what you ask, like how Taeil always listens to what the younger members ask him to, and does it without hesitation
who is willing to let go of their dreams or sacrificing for the better or your sake, the same way winwin gave up his dream in China to being an idol in Korea
who dedicates all their time spending quality time with you, and enjoying every single second of it, the same way ten practises hard on dancing every single day because it’s his passion
who supports you and knows every of your likes and dislikes, inside and out, the same way jisung are the bestest of friends with chenle
who won’t ever give up hope on you or the relationship, and continues working hard to achieve your/their goals, the same way hansol doesn’t give up being a trainee and works had every day, knowing that we’re all waiting for him
lastly, find someone who loves you as much as renjun loves moomin
I think maybe they just don’t have the equipment to care. Seems like when they try, it just… breaks them apart.
- Dean 7x21.
This, in the same episode as:
This is to me when Dean hypothetically gives up on whatever he had thought were his feelings towards Cas.
He believes these kind of feelings if they were ever potentially reciprocated would break Cas and not only does he have his own baggage but this is not what he wants for Cas.
This is where he starts really repressing it, while at the same time coming to really truly LOVE him over time rather than the initial overwhelming crush and intense, unwanted feelings.
It’s amazing to watch him simultaneously repress and develop this feelings over the years, we see less physical indications of attraction and throwaway flirty comments but heaps more emotional indications of love and affection.
All leading up to this moment in 12x12 where he sees how far Cas has fallen, how much he is broken and, tellingly, Cas tells Dean it is his doing.
Of course Dean is upset and angry. He’s upset and angry with himself.
Now he needs to accept not only Cas’s own decisions and desires but to accept that he himself is worthy of those decisions and desires that apply to him it in order to reciprocate.
And of course there’s a lot more stuff that is already being addressed as everyone has been meta-ing about like mad since, well, a long time, but this has all become hugely more textual and more resolved this season especially.
Now there isn’t much left in the way apart from Dean’s own emotional baggage, which is also being addressed this season in a BIG way.
I'm going to do this bad evil thing and threaten the Avatar despite it not working out for anyone in the history of ever
(Walks up to him and slaps him hard in the face) Shut up, no one cares about you. The people want to see me making out with my girlfriend Asami who is the most beautiful woman in the world. We just started a relationship and I don't need any new stress
No serious sit down and shut up. I'm going to make out with my girlfriend for three books and then I'm going to beat you, your only purpose is to give this comic book a vague reason that isn't just me and my girlfriend falling in love!
Sometimes it takes more than one try of something in order to get passed it. And what must we do if this happens? We must keep on trying until we succeed. If you didn’t pass the first time, and even if you don’t pass the second time, you must not ever give up hope, for all challenges are able to be overcome, but some of them just take more time.
After a day or two of not sleeping, vomiting, and crying, I have come to a conclusion. I will no longer shed another tear over this. I am holding my head high. A fire has been lit in me. I woke up and drew this morning. This was the outcome. So:
For anyone who as ever doubted me, for anyone who has tried to discredit me, to anyone that has ever been bullied online, to any artist that as been mistreated or slandered, to everyone on Tumblr. Let it be known that I AM an artist. That I DO NOT trace artwork done by others. I have used poses from other work before and for that I am sorry. Going forward I will no longer do that, however I have NEVER stolen anything from anyone. I have never cheated anyone. I am a human being. I am not perfect. No one is. No one is so perfect that they can cast judgment on another human being that THEY DON’T know. Here is a step by step process of a piece that I was inspired to do from the recent events that have transpired here. This will be my final post on this site, but it will NOT be my final artwork.
That being said, here is what I do:
I have an app called magic poser that allows you to pose 3D models just as you would a wooden art doll. I have 2 drawing apps that I use. Procreate is what I normally use to sketch out drawings in pencil and Adobe Draw is the app I’ve used recently to ink my drawings and color them. So in some form, yes I trace, but it’s my own work. Every artist big and small, digital or classic pencil and paper does this. It’s no secret. I use adobe draw because I love the bright colors it provides me and the lines are crisper.
Above you see this process.
This is a stand against individuals that want to stop artists from sharing their work with the world. This is stand against cyber bullying, this is a stand against slander and lies. This is for any aspiring artist out there that is being told they aren’t good enough or that they aren’t truly drawing “100%” their work. When you draw fan art of a character from an anime or video game etc, are you a thief because you’re drawing a character that doesn’t belong to you? I mean where do we draw the line? Would that make everyone an “art thief”?
No. It doesn’t. If someone used a pose from something I did, as long as it was a different character and it was done in their style, I would feel honored that I inspired someone. I know I don’t speak for everyone. Going forward, I will not do this anymore. Just to stop any confusion or situations like this ever happening again. And finally… to the fake @prompto-loco page:
If this does not convince you then I’m sorry. I am wasting no more energy on you or that page. It has proved nothing. Will prove nothing. The only thing you accomplished was opening my eyes to so many people that support me that I didn’t even know. I gained followers, patrons, and have had an outpouring of love and support that I could have never imagined. So I thank you, from the bottom of my heart for doing this for me. You inspired me and lit a fire in me that I haven’t felt in a while. I’m about to do some amazing things. Please enjoy the URL. I hope it makes you feel some since of accomplishment. I’m sorry that you wasted so much time and energy trying to hurt me, but it did the opposite. I won’t stop drawing, and I will continue to push forward. Just a warning, you violated the terms of Tumblr. You took drawings that I did and vandalized them while trying to prove your point. They have been notified and are in the process of handling you. If they don’t, that’s fine. Keep the page. It’s no skin off my nose.
This is my final post on tumblr. I love you all and I thank you so much for your support. If you enjoy my art, I am on other social media platforms. You can find me there. You are going to see some truly amazing things from me. Just you wait! Much love to all of you. Remember, use your energy for good. Use your time for positivity and lifting others. Not trying to tear them down. There’s enough bad in the world. Be good.
And to my Artists out there, don’t ever let anyone try to rain on your parade.
Why not?! Why won't you guys stand up to Heather with me?
Mmmmmmmmmmm cuz we don't give a shit?
About the earth?!
Please, if you really cared you'd resign, but there's no way you ever will because you're just counting the days until, her face bloated and yellow from liver failure, she calls you to her deathbed and, in a croaky whisper, explains that Heather McNamara is totally incompetent and that you, the long-suffering Heather Duke, are the only one qualified to run Westerberg, and you weep shameful tears, because you know this terrible place is the only true love you will EVER. KNOW.
One post I saw mentioned that Jack was about to hit Les at some point, but I don't recall that happening. Could you explain?
I can, indeed! (Sorry if I over-explain this, by the way, I just really love talking about Newsies)
I don’t believe it happens in the 1992 movie, but boy does it ever happen during the stage show.
At the rally, right after Jack urges everyone to vote no and give up on the strike, Spot pushes Jack and he ends up shoved to the side, where one of Pulitzer’s guys gives him a stack of money in front of everyone.
As everyone else starts to get more angry, Les runs up to tap Jack on the arm to get him to turn around.
Jack, highly emotional and upset at this point, acts on reflex and spins around and raises his arm to hit whoever is behind him.
He stops the second he realizes who it is (which, it wasn’t until I went to get these screenshots that I realized that Les and Jack actually make eye contact here, and that’s when Jack starts to look sad, so now I have that to think about…),
but the damage is already done. Les runs away and everyone scatters.
I have been an AROHA since November 30, 2015, long before we had a name or more than, like, 30 blogs on tumblr. I’ve made a ton of wonderful friends through our mutual love for ASTRO, and I’ve had chances to experience things that I might not have experienced otherwise. Here are some things that I’ve realized since being an AROHA, or things I already knew that have just been cemented in me even more.
1. Always, always be kind.
AROHA means ‘love’ in Maori. If we don’t show that love to other people, then who would we be as a fandom? There are people behind every blog, and a different side to idols that we never see. We don’t know what goes on in every person’s life. We don’t know what their past holds, so be kind to everybody that you meet. Kindness is often met with kindness.
2. Believe in yourself.
If you believe in yourself, you can do anything. This comes directly from my experience in running @astrofantastic since I first learned about ASTRO. The blog started off small, and I just kept thinking, if it’s even for one person, I can do it. The blog has grown to much more than I would have ever expected. The members of ASTRO believed that they would continue on and debut, and they did. They believe in themselves, and we believe in them, and so we should believe in ourselves, too.
3. Be proud.
Most people sell themselves short. They don’t think that what they do is good enough, but it is. We need to be proud of what we have accomplished, as little or as big as that accomplishment is. There is never a time when you shouldn’t be proud of what you have done and who you are.
4. Someone is always going to listen to you.
AROHA are such an open community that there will always be someone willing to talk to you. It might not seem like it, and you might be intimidated, but you shouldn’t be! I can name 10 people off the top of my head who would willingly strike up a conversation with a random AROHA.
5. Keep going.
Don’t ever give up. Even when your goal seems ridiculous, keep going. You will get there. Set your mind to something and you will be able to accomplish it if you are proud of what you have done, and if you believe in yourself. Keep going with a heart full of love and find people to share your passions with. Nothing, nothing is holding you back. You can do anything.
Will there be more of today's post??!!!?? Who is she pregnant with? Who does Jamie work for? Was Frank ever involved?! COME ON DON'T LEAVE A GIRL HANGING! PLEASEEEEEEE Pregnant Claire and Professor Jamie just gives me all these happy feels and that's what I needed so much! I would love to see more stories like this <3
“Shit, shit shit!” I muttered as the lukewarm coffee from both mine and Geillie’s cups spilled down my front
“Sorry Ma’am, but the cups spilled. My uniform–”
“Clean it up and change. You can’t sit in a puddle of coffee. Shoo!”
“Thankyou Mistress Callaghan,” I said convincingly sweet.
I made a dash for my storage trunk and pulled my comfortable clothes from the bottom of my bag. I hadn’t exactly intended on pulling this stunt today but wanted to be prepared for the proper moment. The standard yellow dress, now a putrid brown, clung to my legs as I made my way down to the lavatory. I took my time rinsing the dress out, washing the coffee from my body and simply enjoying the brief moments out of the scrutiny and boredom of the bookkeeping class.
“Just a few more weeks, Beauchamp. You can make it that long.” I said to my reflection.
With a deep breath, I left the bubble of comfort I had created.
The lift’s small lobby was blissfully quiet. I reached to push the up button, but it was already lit. I stared in confusion at the little red bar. A deep clearing of someone’s throat sounded from behind me causing me to jump. I turned and saw the most beautiful man, and he smiled with a nod of his head.
“Good-day,” I murmured. His smiled widened.
“It is a good day.” He was fidgeting from side to side, his fingers tapping his thigh in a rhythmic cadence.
The freight lift dinged at the same time the standard lift opened its doors with a bell and rush of people.
“I’ll just follow ye. Ye seem to ken where it is yer going in this place.”
I smiled at him and nodded, requesting the second floor to the operator, while my redheaded companion requested the tenth.
“They both go to the same place,” I said quickly.
“I’d hope so.” He smirked.
“The other just has an extra stop to the basement and underground storage unit.”
“Ah weel, good thing I followed you! I didna fancy getting mugged or murdered today.” He joked with a roguish wink. I laughed nervously, concentrating on not spewing words thoughtless back to this man.
“Second floor, madam.” The elderly attendant said as he opened the double gated doors.
“Thank-you Jacob.” I turned back to the beautiful man, committing his face to memory.
“Have a good day!” He said, holding out a hand. I couldn’t speak and blushed rushing for the door to the women’s hall, blushing the entire time.
“Hmm?” I jolted, turning my head to see concerned blue eyes of my husband searching my own.
“Where did ye go? I thought for a moment ye had fallen asleep but yer eyes were open and ye were twirling a lock of yer hair.”
“Do you remember the day we met?” I whispered ignoring his question, as he lazily drew circles on my protruding stomach. I felt rather than heard his laugh.
“Aye. Ye were so flustered and adorable. I nearly followed you to wherever ye were headed that day. I’m even surprised I have a job after the daze ye left me in.”
It was my turn to laugh. “Surely I didn’t cause that much of an upheaval?”
“Och! But ye did Sassenach. Ye did.” He paused, fingers stilling over my belly button, then quickly pulled me tighter against his chest. “Ye were the most beautiful thing I had ever laid my eyes on. Your hair wild and loose, and yer outfit, Christ! Ye were so brazen in yer pants and sleeveless top, I thought I’d walked into another world.”
“If you knew why I looked that way…” I trailed off shaking my head. “I was in the restroom just before meeting you in the lobby. Coffee had just spilled down my respectable clothes and I had to change into something more comfortable that was in my bag.”
“Ye wee fiend! Ye spilled yer coffee on purpose to change!” His fingers grazed the sensitive side of my ribs and I squealed and tried to wiggle out of his grasp.
“Yes!” I heaved between laughs, my lungs burning and tears streaming down my face. “Alright, is that what you wanted to hear? I couldn’t stand the pale yellow dress that was required and when Geillie stood up at our desk I hit the desk with my knee causing hers, and my drinks to spill down the front of my dress.”
I could feel Jamie’s smile against my neck as he smothered his laughter in my skin.
“I knew I married a canny one.” His laughs turned into sighs as he nuzzled deeper into my skin. “I canna say that I’m sorry ye tend to break the rules, Sorcha.”
“Oh, why’s that?” I asked, turning my head to try and see him, but getting a face full of unruly, short red curls.
“If ye hadna broken the rules and gone to the lavatory to change, I never would have met ye in that elevator. And I would ne’er change the events of that day.”
I smiled, brought his knuckles to my lips and kissed them. “Nor would I. How did you find me, we never exchanged names, or even said more than a few–embarrassing, on my part– words?”
Jamie shifted so that I was laying on my back and he was propped up on an elbow, looking down at me.
“During my interview with the Latin department, I inquired what was on the second floor of the building.” He leaned down and kissed my temple. “And when they said the women’s institution hall I knew I had to try and find ye again.”
“It didn’t take you long. What? All of three days went by before you were standing outside the lifts with a solitary yellow tulip.”
“Aye, that’s when I finally had the balls to stand there and wait hoping ye’d show yerself.”
I reached up and stroked his cheek and the day’s old stubble that resided there. “I do love you, and can’t tell you how happy I am that you did come to find me that day.”
“I couldna see my life without you. That day ye were babbling and mumbling to me in that lift, I knew ye were it for me.”
“My babbling endeared you. Oh my how I have the greatest ability!” I exaggerated sarcastically laughing as he began tickling my sides.
We twined our bodies together heaving from the laughter. A quick beat of little feet startled us both.
“Seems like he likes his parents happy,” Jamie whispered, as he leaned in for a kiss.
“Mmm, she wants us to settle down. It is her nap time after all.”
Jamie bent down, caressing my now exposed stomach. “Shh wee one. We’ll calm down now. Go sleep and become strong so that ye can join us in the world verra soon. Tha gaol agam ort, mo chridhe.” He finished this with a kiss to my stomach, followed by a kiss on my lips.
“I never thought I’d say I can thank my happiness to spilled coffee and a lift, but I’m glad that I can.”
you know what? i am so proud of jimin. we all know that he’s been having insecurities and worries, always blaming himself, saying it’s his fault, saying he’s not good enough and stuffs like that. i am so proud of jimin because tonight, even though it’s still a small step, he’s little by little overcoming one of his biggest insecurities. he’s finally doing a cover. i know how hard it is and how it takes a lot of confidence and bravery to finally upload the cover. all this time we keep talking about when will he feels good enough to upload a song cover and tonight he did it. and i hope tonight would be the night when jimin would slowly overcome all his insecurities and feel enough with himself, i hope he appreciates himself more, give credit to himself more, love himself more than ever. i hope he now will finally realize he is not only enough, but he is MORE than enough. i hope he will begin to look at himself just the way we look at him; a hardworking, talented human being. he doesn’t have to try so hard to prove that out we already know that. to sum it up, im so proud of park jimin.

I can confirm that you can In fact be a lesbian and a good Christian. Being Christian just means you believe in Christ I believe that the best advice I can give to other Christian members of the LGBTQ+ community is "God loves all his children he created me to be me and I like girls he made me the way I am and I don't think he made me just to hate me" don't ever let anyone tell you god hates gays cause God loves all his children ( that probably don't make any sense sorry just woke up)
do you ever cry because haley james scott got a tattoo of nathan’s jersey number at the tender age of 16 because she loved him so much? she went and got a freaking tattoo!!! tutor girl got a tattoo for a boy she was just dating at the time, even before they exchanged ‘I love you’s’. at 16 she was so in love she didn’t even care if they weren’t going to last, she just wanted to remember forever of how she was feeling, of how much she loved that person in such little time, even if they weren’t meant to be. haley james scott has been in love with nathan scott since she was 16 and i think that’s beautiful.
