life has ups and downs

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

i mentioned the recent confusion about my intimidating guns and the clever solution that i solved it with to steve, and he helpfully illustrated my success.

here comes M-O

save him. 

I just have to say this. I know that Taylor thinks Red didn’t win album of the year because it wasn’t sonically cohesive, but I honestly think that’s what made it so beautiful. It’s all over the place, emotionally. Life is not sonically cohesive either. You’re not always happy. You can go from being happier than you’ve ever been and partying at 22 but then you’ll eventually have those Sad Beautful Tragic moments in life. Life has its ups and downs, and I think Red expresses those emotions in the most magical way possible, which is why it will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. That’s all I have to say.

sherbertime  asked:

Lately I’ve been loosing hope. Is there anything you do or any advice I could get ?

Things can and will get better. Life always has its ups and downs and as much as it may suck at the time, you have to fight through them with the knowledge that it WILL get better. You’ve got people here rooting you on :) you are not alone

زني را مي شناسم من
که شعرش بوي غم دارد
ولي مي خندد و گويد
که دنيا پيچ و خم دارد
I know a woman
whose poems smell of sorrow 
Yet she smiles and says: 
Life has its ups and downs…

How They’d  Cuddle You

Request: Can you do a marauder’s preference about how they cuddle you? Your blog is freaking awesome by the way.

A/N: Ask and you shall receive! I’m so sorry for how late this is, life has been catching up on me. I was recently down in Kansas for a couple days, visiting my older brother, and earlier today I had my wisdom teeth removed, so…yay.

Just want to let those who have requested things that I have NOT skipped you or blown you off in any way. My motivation to write has been pretty low because of everything that’s going on, so I decided to do this request because it didn’t require a ton of writing.

Once again, I just want to apologize for being gone, I will start writing again shortly!

Anyway, the request is just for the Marauders, let me know if you want one for the Golden Trio and I’ll definitely get around to doing it. As always, I do not own any of le gifs.

Enjoy! ♥


James Potter

Originally posted by kissing-pleasure

James is someone who feels the need to constantly move, he can’t keep still. Every time you two would decide to lay down in an attempt to relax, he’d insist on touching you, whether that’s tickling you, or other…activities. He sees cuddling as a waste of time when he knows you and him could be doing so much more.

That being said, he’s not opposed to cuddling in certain circumstances, especially when you’re first laying down to sleep. 

He’s particularly fond of spooning, generally when he’s the big spoon. (He’d like to try being the little spoon, but he’ll never admit it.) He loves the feeling of how perfect your body fits with his, and the way you press your back into him when he tightens his arms around your waist. 

Just a small ‘extra’ thing to add, he loves the way you smell. Your scent to him smells of home, and he often buries his face into your neck when you’re in his arms to remind him you’re still there and safe. 

(I got a little carried away with his…)


Sirius Black

Originally posted by pleasingpics

Sirius is the cuddler of all cuddlers. Literally, any time of day, if you wanted to cuddle, he’d be 100% down. 

Being that Sirius literally is a dog, his body temperature, naturally, would be higher than most. He’s warm and comforting, as a dog would be. Sirius is touchy, but not nearly to the extent that James is, his arms are generally wrapped around your shoulders, keeping you on him. Your head is always against his chest so he’s able to see you. Being reluctant to let go, you’d almost always end up falling asleep in his arms.

Quite honestly, Sirius would cuddle you for the rest of your life, not joke, he’d hold onto you forever. I can’t really explain this too great, just, he’s a great cuddler, 10/10 would recommend.

(I’m really bad at writing for Sirius, I need to practice.)


Remus Lupin

Remus is sort of thrown in between Sirius and James when it comes to cuddling. He doesn’t like it nor dislike it, mainly because he doesn’t want to impose himself upon you.

That said, if there was a situation where he knew you needed him, he’d be there in a heartbeat. He’d instantly pull into his arms, and lie down on the nearest couch or bed, bringing you with him. He rest you  on top of him and wrap his arms around your upper back. Remus’ first priority is keeping you safe and he always wants you to know that you’ll always be safe in his arms. 

Remus has a small habit of kissing you on the top of your head to sort of ‘seal’ your safety, and you best believe you’ll receive plenty of them. It’s one of his many ways of telling you he loves you.

When my college career ended, I told everyone “never again” I was also told “you can never run like you use to after a year like yours”.

Well guess what:

I’ve now been running consistently 6 days a week. I haven’t done that since I was a sophomore in college.

There’s just something that after the high demands and standards, after that all leaves you’re left with what you fell in love with in the first place…

The run.

There’s no more boundaries
Pace or mileage requirements

It’s just what you do that day

Whether it’s 1 mile or 13

You best bet you enjoyed your run

I can’t promise every run will be good
Or every run will be horrible

That’s life, it all has its ups or downs

Just love the run.

Nothing gets me worse then “wow your dog is so smart! Mine’s just dumb”

Like dude, my bro

There’s this thing called effort

And like…actually working with the dog…
