life has ups and downs

Hey you, yeah you
I love you and you can totally keep going
Life has ups and downs, sometimes more downs than anything else, but i assure you it’ll get better, just try a little harder, just a little bit, you’ll get through whatever you are going through
There’s always someone who cares about you


save him. 

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness


a series of unlikely crossovers


Summary: Ryan sweeps into Gavin the Third’s life, turns his world upside down, and then has to pick up the pieces.

(Eleven Little Roosters fic)

a/n: Silly thing I wrote to practice their characterisations, but I’ll post it as my gift to all of you freewood people waiting for them to interact in the show LOL

c/w: brief mentions of suicide, nothing actually happens


Ryan met with Gavin the Third in a small but painfully expensive restaurant overlooking the Thames. The agent was already there when he arrived, sitting by the window with a glass of red wine in hand and three plates of tiny appetisers in front of him that Ryan was quite sure had already amounted to several hundred pounds despite seeming to barely contain more than a mouthful of actual food.

“Gavin,” he said as he approached, and the other man’s eyes flicked up to him.

It still gave Ryan a jolt, how fucking identical he looked to Ryan’s old coworker. But not just to the two Gavins who he’d met back at Rooster Teeth. To the student he’d met while investigating the wormhole that’d opened in some university science lab. To the Golden Boy who worked with gangs over in Los Santos. To that idiot running around with a Union Jack on his chest claiming to be a superhero who’d been in all the papers lately.

They were all over the fucking place, and maybe Ryan should’ve been used to that same giant nose popping up everywhere, but somehow - every time - it still made him feel an odd guilt. A flash back to his life before all this.

I created this spread during one of my many three in the morning depression events that leave me feeling like a failure. The intention of this spread is to make me feel better and remind me that “I’m Not Worthless." 

Position One: My Strength. This position reminds me that through all that I’ve been through, all the ups, downs, crazy left turns that life has thrown my way I am still here. This position puts my strength and self-worth front and center while reminding me of the badass that I am.

Position Two: Acknowledgment. This position brings the feelings of worthlessness to the forefront. I make sure to look at this card, allow myself to feel my pain, my sadness and then give myself the permission to process it and then let it go. I think acknowledging my feelings is important rather than masking them or covering them up with something else. This position allows me to do that.

Position Three: Self Care. This position is the suggested advice and first step for my self-care and healing. With this position, I become accountable for my thoughts and healing process until I can obtain external resources if needed to better myself and the situation.

Whoniverse: Class - 9/? Miss Quill and Charlie moments (1x03) 

5′8″ –  February 2015 (187lbs) → October 2016 (155lbs)

Transformation Tuesday Wednesday? Is that how this works? My weight has been up and down for my entire adult life. It’s been close to a year now that I’ve stayed under 170lbs, and I’m beyond thrilled to be “maintaining” right about 155. Most of the change seem above my was my diet. Don’t get me wrong, it helps I’ve been running 30-50 miles a week for the last 4 months, but by far the most noticeable change was my diet. Less processed food, less snacking. 

At this point, I’m not actively trying to lose more weight (not like I’m trying to put it on either though). If I can keep running and add strength training into my regular routine, I’d be one very happy camper (fitter person!)

I just got home from my last night of classes

Why you should write in Helga G. Pataki for President 2016.

This is Helga G. Pataki.

(Don’t ask what the ‘G’ stands for - it’s none of your beeswax!)

And this is why she should be our president:

There's nothing that's brought me more happiness than YouTube.

Life has its ups and downs.
And the downs can hit hard.
But no matter what shit I’ve gone through, and trust me there’s been a lot, there’s only ever been one place I could turn to that truly made me feel better.
And that’s YouTube.

Whether it was Markiplier telling me to keep my head up and to believe in myself, Cry playing video games and catching me off guard with his contagious laughter, or Max, Ian, and George just being idiots, I’ve never felt more solace than I do here.
Where these goofs on the internet that I’ve never met can make me smile more than actual people in my life.

And for this I am thankful.

Motivation can be a bitch.

Life has up’s and downs. Your motivation will do the same.
When you lose motivation sometimes you just gotta get real with yourself and accept the facts. You need to get determined instead, you need to be ready to grind it out even on those lazy days.
When your motivation returns in a couple weeks you’ll be happy you stuck it out because you maintained momentum and your progress is what will continue to motivate you to keep pushing. I call it the “reaping the benefits phase”, it varies for everyone but it can mean you got your “newbie gains” or dropped a pant size, maybe you hit a PR or finally feel properly nourished and it’s all making your whole day better.
Motivation comes and goes but you can make it through. The more you progress the more you’ll realize that your not reaching for a goal anymore but relaxing into a whole new lifestyle. One that you’ve created for your self, your true self. Self love, fitness, health. All that is benefiting you body, mind and soul.
Maybe that’s cliché but I feel more in touch with the self now that I’m taking control of my lifestyle. This process has been long but it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made. That alone keeps me motivated. I’m better now. I’m stronger now.

And I will become my best.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and get to spend time with those you love!  We all have so much to be thankful for.  Even though life has it’s ups and downs, we are all here, right? That’s pretty cool.  We all came together to read this.  So whatever you do today, I hope it is special, and I truly wish you the best!  What are you all thankful for? Happy Thanksgiving!  

A Call to Action!

Okay, guys. I normally don’t like to put myself on the spot like this, but this time, I feel I don’t have a choice…

See, I’ve been talking with Ms. @azufrost for a good while now, and have been doing my best to help her through the crap she deals with in her life on a daily basis - working at least two awful jobs that I know of, dealing with an ever-increasing rent in a sub-par apartment with pain-in-the-ass landlords, and having a good number of people do everything from verbally abuse to straight-up abandon her. Life has continued to beat her down non-stop for the past 5 months or so that I’ve known her, and now its finally reached a breaking point. She honestly can’t handle it anymore, is on the verge of losing her home with nowhere and no one to turn to, and I want to do everything in my power to help her however I can. To be frank, I can’t stand the idea of someone fighting as hard as she has and having nothing to show for it.

Therefore, I have decided to do my best to raise awareness on her behalf, and to hopefully encourage those willing to lend her a hand. I’m even prepared to take commissions on her behalf, if need be. (prices can be discussed on an individual basis.)

I know this is a long-shot, but it’s all I can think to do.
For further details, please contact Frost herself.

Cheers, and thank you for reading.

Two whole years. When I first made this blog, I never expected that I would get more than a handful of followers, let alone the 1.4k+ wonderful followers that I have now. I remember stressing out about whether or not anyone would even want to write with me. Two years later and I’m still completely flabbergasted to find that people enjoy my writing and my characterization, but it honestly means so much to me. This blog has seen me through some major ups and downs in my life, and while there has been some rocky water, I’m eternally grateful for everything that I’ve experienced here, for the people I’ve met, and the amazing friendships that I’ve created. I’m sorry I’m not doing anything cool like a giveaway or anything, but I did at least want to give shoutouts to some of my favorite blogs, the people I admire, and the people I’ve been so lucky to call my friends. Thank you all for an amazing two years, and here’s hoping 2017 is good to all of us! You all mean the world to me. <333
