leaving-your-mark-on-the-world

I have received various messages from people who actually tried some of these games and got back horrifying, emotionally and physically scarring results. 

Play at your own risk.

1. Write his name on a piece of lined paper over and over again. When it stops looking like poetry to you, light a match and watch the flames devour the page. Breathe in the smoke and smell the chemicals until you feel sick then cough, cough him out of your lungs. It’s the only way to let him out without leaving a mark.
2. Go outside and go for a walk. Don’t bring your coat. Let the cold air cling to your skin and cover you in goose bumps. Don’t bring your iPod either. Listen to the sound of the world spinning, changing and moving. Feel alive without him .
3. Sit on the floor of your shower and let the steaming water fall down on you like rain. Think about how seconds ago the very water that was touching your skin is now circling the drain. Remember that everything is temporary.
4. Stop sleeping with his worn out T-shirt. It doesn’t even smell like him anymore and as each day passes you feel more pathetic falling asleep with it wrapped around you hoping to wake up beside more than just a reminder that he’s fucking gone.
5. Sing the song that reminds you of him. When you get to the chorus scream each lyric as loud as your shaky hesitant voice will let you. Reclaim it as your own and stop letting him have the biggest parts of you.
6. Sleep in until 2 in the afternoon, then go to the diner he took you to on your first date and have breakfast by yourself. When you stop shaking, drink your coffee slowly and write a poem in your journal that isn’t about him. Eat the shitty eggs they bring you and leave a big tip. When you’re leaving smile at the waiter who has been making eyes at you the whole time you were there. Not to flirt, but to show him and even to show yourself that in time, you’re slowly getting better.

Magnetic Hill is a very special tourist attraction located near Leh in Ladakh, India. When you reach the hill, follow the directions on the yellow sign telling you to park your vehicle in the white box marked with white paint on the road. 

When you switch the vehicle off and leave it in neutral, the car seemingly moves downhill. No big deal but then, after being prompted to turn your car in the opposite direction, the car seemingly moves uphill!

Rumor has it the area has extreme magnetic properties, strong enough to pull cars uphill. In reality, the shape of the surrounding landscape and mountainous horizon obscures the observer’s usual reference points and creates the illusion. (Source)

Two Days In Yosemite

I awoke in the pre-dawn hours discombobulated and delirious to a very distinctive gargle and flap of the wings. As I pried my lids open I found myself in a world where the air was so crisp you could see your own breath and so still you could hear the leaves falling to the ground, all covered with a thin blanket of campfire smoke serenity. I love fall in the Valley.

I vowed to stop writing about you but it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped thinking about you. You still fill every space in my brain and the brightness of your smile still lights up the world around me. It’s like your existence refuses to leave me entirely; you’ve already marked me like a tattoo and I can’t remove you. I dont think I’ll ever fall out of love with you. I guess what I feel for you is a book that will never end.
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life - and travel - leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks - on your body or on your heart - are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.
—  Anthony Bourdain

“I’d like to leave some sort of mark in my field.”
“What’s your field?”
“I’m the data manager in the museum bird department. I started in the fish department, then moved to reptiles and amphibians, then just sort of fell into birds.”
“What sort of mark do you hope to leave in the bird data world?”
“Well, in a perfect world, we’d conserve all the lands that needed to be conserved. But as things are, you have to be able to make a really strong argument about what areas are crucial to certain species. I can help the people making those arguments by organizing bird data from the museum’s collection and making it easily accessible to researchers.”

The Signs as “The Room” Quotes

Aries: I did not hit her, it’s not true! It’s bullshit! I did not hit her! I did *not*. Oh hi, Mark.

Taurus: Haw haw haw. What a story, Mark.

Gemini: How can they say this about me? I don’t believe it. I show them. I will record everything. 

Cancer: You are tearing me apart, Lisa!

Leo: You don’t understand anything, man. Leave your *stupid* comments in your pocket!

Virgo: What do you want from me, huh? HUH?

Libra: Everybody betrayed me! I’m fed up with this world!

Scorpio: Anyway, how is your sex life?  

Sagittarius: You betrayed me! You’re not good. You, you’re just a chicken. Chip-chip-chip-chip-cheep-cheep.

Capricorn: Of course, what do ya think? They already put my ideas into practice. The bank saves money, and they are using me, and I am the fool.

Aquarius: Don’t touch me, motherfucker.

Pisces: Hi, doggy.

Bangtan 1 Year Anniversary Project
Hello A.R.M.Ys! So as we all know, Bangtan’s 1st year since debut is coming up on June 12th and we wanted to do something special for it. There is a website named ZeeMaps where you can create your own map and leave markers to identify where you live/leave a message about yourself and we thought it’d be a great idea to show Bangtan just how many fans they have all around the world! We wanted to start this as early as we could so that way we can get as many A.R.M.Y’s names marked on this map as possible. We also might have another project coming up if Bangtan visits the U.S. (since that’s where both admins live) so stay tuned for that! Here is a link to the map!

Rules: 

Here are a basic list of Dos and Don’ts:

Don’ts:

  • Don’t post your address, phone number, etc. This is for your protection since the map is public.
  • Don’t post any vulgar, uncomfortable, offensive, or sexual messages or media. Also try to steer clear of mentioning OTPS, fanfics, or anything of that sort. Kinda self explanatory. 

All violations will either be removed or edited. 

Dos:

  • Do write as much as you want! Don’t be afraid to write too much. There is no limit to explaining your feels.
  • Do upload supportive media! (Examples of acceptable media: fanart, fanvideos, dance covers, song covers, mv reactions, fan signs, etc.) If you have any questions about what is or isn’t acceptable media please feel free to message us.
  • Do add some of your culture to your post. I think it would be really interesting to write a bit in your native tongue, show that your country supports Bangtan, even throw in your flag! How popular is Bangtan in your country? I’m sure the boys would like to know! There is no rules against the language you write in (as long as the things you’re saying aren’t offensive).
  • Do share stories with them about how you discovered them, and what they have done to impact your life. This project is all about showing them that their fans appreciate and value them. Make your messages as cheesy as you want!

Tutorial on how to add a marker: 

Select “Add Marker - Simple” not the detailed option. The detailed version will ask you to add your address. DO NOT PUT YOUR ADDRESS! If you add your address your marker will be deleted! 

For location you can either write down your town or if you aren’t comfortable giving away your exact city you can choose to click a location on the map and place your marker in a nearby city or other area in your state/country (try to refrain from putting your marker outside of your country). See the rules for more information about what you can and can’t add to your marker! 

When you click on that something will pop up with three tabs: “Location, Details, and Media”. Under location: Don’t put your address!!!!! Under Details:Do not put your phone number!!!! See step below for details on media. 

The rules for what media you can and can not add are listed above in rules. All violations will be removed. 

How else you can help:

Please spread this around on any social networking site and reblog it so we can get as many A.R.M.Ys to mark themselves on the map! Also feel free to translate it into your language so people from all over the world can join!

Please direct all questions to either this tumblr or our twitter!!

As it turns out, humanity and technology have been on the same wavelength for centuries when it comes to life. One of their many accomplishments is successfully using nanobots that within a two hour period of it floating in human blood, creates a special coding and leaves a tattoo mark on your skin. You don’t have it. It doesn’t work on you, and you’re basically a lab rat for scientists all over the world. Elaborate.

“Listen to me. I am leaving, but I am living. I will not be gone from you entirely, Will. When you fight now, I will be still by you. When you walk in the world, I will be the light at your side, the ground steady under your feet, the force that drives the sword in your hand. We are bound, beyond the oath. The Marks did not change that. The oath did not change that. It merely gave words to something that existed already.”
