You were walking down the city streets, everything in your life seemed to be going so perfect for you at the moment. You had gotten the opportunity to work as a photographer in the most famous photography studio, which happened to be your dream job. Photography was always something you were extremely passionate about since you were little. At the toy stores you’d always reach for the fake plastic cameras and pretend to take pictures of everything. Your parents knew how passionate you were about photography but didn’t really think that was the kind of job they wanted their child to have. It took some time for them to warm up to the idea however you were grateful for them to have finally accepted what you wanted to do.

You were single, yes, but that didn’t mean you weren’t going on a few dates here and there but you were also happy with not being in a relationship because that meant you had more time to focus on yourself and your job.

Your last relationship was going so well. Better than what you had expected in the first place. That was until you noticed your boyfriend change. His attitude, the way he dressed, even the way he parted his hair. There was only one thing you had thought it could be, and that is he was cheating on you. He never got intimate with you anymore nor was he affectionate. He was the type to always want to cuddle or even stay up all night rambling about who loves who more but all of a sudden, he stopped. Cold and distant was what he became towards you.

You’d always push him to tell you what was going on with him but he would always call you ‘clingy’ and ‘nosey’.


*FLASHBACK*


“Please just tell me what’s going on with you! You’ve been acting so different lately, everything about you has changed. You’re not the same.”

Tears were starting to form and as much as you tried to stop them from falling, you couldn’t.

“For fucks sake Y/N I tell you the same damn thing every time we have this discussion! There’s nothing wrong with me! Stop being a clingy bitch and drop it.”

And with that, he stormed out of the apartment you both shared. Not once did he ever apologize, only acted as if nothing ever happened that night. Deciding to leave him was one of the hardest decisions you ever had to make. You loved him, with all your heart but you simply couldn’t stick around anymore.

As you were walking you felt something change. Was it the atmosphere? Or was it just the traffic lights turning from red to green to yellow? It wasn’t that late at night but it was a weekday so the streets weren’t busy due to the fact that people were trying to get home as soon as possible to get some rest for their next day. You looked back and saw a man walking close but not too close behind you but you didn’t think anything of it. You couldn’t see his face because it was covered with a mask. Walking home wasn’t anything new to you. You lived just 10 minutes walking distance from the studio to your apartment you felt there was no need to waste gas. However something about tonight felt different. Extremely different.

“Crap please don’t be cracked”,
you said as your phone slipped from your hands and onto the hard concrete beneath you.

As you reached down to grab your phone you saw the same man, stopping as soon as you stopped walking.

Hm maybe he’s just walking the same way as me, don’t overthink it Y/N. You had always seen people to only have good intentions, never bad. That was your mistake. When you arrived to your apartment and reached for your keys, you checked your mailbox hoping your new lenses arrived. (They were replacements for the lenses your ex had broken during a fight you two had when you told him you wanted to leave him). Just as you were about to unlock your mailbox you suddenly jolted backwards as someone’s hand violently covered your mouth.

“If you scream or resist I won’t like that shit one bit babygirl and you really don’t want to get on my bad side.”

He gave a slight chuckle after, sending chills down your spine, if his voice had already hadn’t. He then spoke but not to you. He sounded to be speaking into a walkie talkie because you heard the beep noise after he had pressed the button.

“Alright guys I got her now hurry up and send two people so they can help me. I’ll send my location.” You were scared, no you were terrified. All of these thoughts were coming into your head
Am I going to live?
Are these people going to sell me and ship me to God knows where?
Something inside you made you speak up. You didn’t want to because you were afraid but something made the words come out.

“Who are you and what do you want from me?”
He ignored your questions so you then asked him again. And again. And again. At this point you were getting frustrated and angry, no longer feeling that nervousness in your stomach or the fear. Suddenly you heard a car pull up which definitely needed some new breaks. The car doors opened and you heard many footsteps approaching.

“All of you came? Are you fucking serious? I said only 2 people.” The annoyance he had in his voice made you giggle softly.

“Hey hey no need to get your panties in a twist JB, we just wanted to see the pretty lady Jinyoung wanted us to capture for him.” Who the hell was Jinyoung and why did he want you? You didn’t know anyone by the name of Jinyoung. And that guys name that was holding you was JB? The only JB you know is Justin Bieber and it sure as hell wasn’t him who was kidnapping you.

“Whatever just help me blindfold her and tie her up to get her in the van.”

“Oh no” you thought to yourself.
They’re actually taking me.
The reality and the terrified feeling kicked in and you bit his hand, making him hiss in pain and take it off of your mouth. The opportunity for you to scream and kick came, in hopes of being able to release yourself from JB’s grip.


“She’s a little feisty one”, said one of the other ones. JB had turned, taking your body along with his and you were facing them. You counted them and in total there were 7 boys. To be honest you had expected them to be ugly, you were so wrong because they weren’t. They were the complete opposite. Beautiful. Beautiful is the word you chose to describe them.


Wait Y/N you’re not supposed to be thinking that. These men are trying to kidnap you. All of a sudden you felt a cloth go over your nose. The strong scent filling your nostrils. Your head started to spin, making you feel dizzy and ready to pass out but before going into a full deep sleep you heard JB whisper in your ear,


“I told you not to scream or resist babygirl.”

Beginner Workout Tips

I know a lot of guys wanna improve their strength, and summer is definitely a good time for that. Many of us have more free time now that it’s summer. Perfect time to try out the gym. If you’re thinking of working on getting go the gym more this summer, I have a few tips that could really help:

Starting off is tough. Get through 2 weeks, though, and you’ll probably be able to make going to the gym a consistent habit! The first week is definitely the hardest. If you can, find a friend to work out with. Put the offer out there, and you’d be surprised who might say yes. It’s definitely more motivating to go when you have a friend going with you. It’ll keep you both accountable, on track, and motivated. Trust me, it worked for me back when I first decided to get serious about exercising.

Start taking a multi-vitamin. Sure, you should be able to get enough nutrition from food alone, but some diets have holes in them and multi-vitamins can fill those in. If you don’t have proper nutrition, you won’t see results, and you might actually strain your body. I know not all of us make the best food decisions every day. This will help your body stay on track.

Increase your protein intake on days you work out. When you lift weights, this is especially important. Meats are all high in protein. Try and make choices that tend to be lower in fats. Eggs are your best friends! Fish is great, and omega oils are Good for you, yo. Beans, peanut butter, nuts, milk, and yogurt all have protein, too (and the dairy items have calcium! an extra plus!), so don’t stress if you can’t have meat! And while we’re on the subject of protein, this is extremely important to point out: Protein shakes are NEVER a meal-replacement. Skipping meals or eating less than 2000 calories (if you’re counting) will hurt you. Seriously. Don’t do that. Protein shakes are meant to be consumed after workouts, unless they are specifically pre-workout shakes. Whey protein will be tough on those of you who are lactose-intolerant, because it’s made from milk, so even though it’s typically cheaper than other plant-based protein powders, the extra money will help you not feel terrible. The easiest on the stomach, I have found, are rice-based protein powders. If the store has little individual packets, buy different flavors and different ones to see which one(s) you like best. I personally am partial to the generic CVS chocolate flavored whey powder.

If you are just starting out on lifting, do NOT go heavy. Your muscles will build p strength faster than your tendons, so you could hurt yourself if you try to go too heavy too fast. If something hurts, do NOT do the exercise. Know your limits, and never push yourself to a crazy degree. I know you wanna impress your friends you’re at the gym with, or even the cute person you’ve been eyeing across the gym, but if you hurt yourself, you will look like a huge fool. It will ruin you. Don’t. Instead, do lighter weights with higher reps. I usually go for 3 sets of 10 reps, but you can go for anywhere from 8-12 reps. Only after you have built up a certain degree of strength would I even attempt to go heavier and even target certain body parts and muscle groups more intensely than others.

Have at least 2 rest days! Rest days are important. Your body needs to recover, or else it will never grow. You’ll also just exhaust yourself, and that’s not good. Use your rest days to just chill out. Stay hydrated and stretch so the soreness from your gym days won’t make you stiff and will dissipate faster!

Split your lift days by muscle-groups. This will keep your workouts structured and keep your body’s development proportional. I divide my days up like this: pull day (biceps and back), push day (triceps and chest with some shoulders), leg day (and yeah, don’t skip it), and shoulder day (since I just really want mine to develop well lol). I do abs every time, after I lift, but you can also do them before. Don’t skimp out with abs. Sure, it hurts, but the results are great. Core strength will really help with overall strength! I do at least 5 weight-lifting exercises for each designated day. Stretch before, and then get going! If you are unsure about your form for an exercise, most gyms have personal trainers who are willing to help you. Don’t be afraid to ask them a question! Youtube is also a great resource for videos on form. I like AthleanX’s videos, as well as Gabriel Sey’s, and Buff Dudes. Proper form is extremely important, otherwise you could strain your body or even seriously injure yourself. It’s especially important for heavier exercises.

Cardio days are good for you! Have at least 1 cardio day in your week! Walking, biking, jogging, dancing, and the elliptical are great for cardio. Swimming is also good cardio, but as a poor swimmer myself, I don’t really get much of a workout from it. If you have friends who like to play sports, soccer, basketball, etc are great for getting in some cardio and also making it fun (because jogging is honestly boring unless you jog outside or have a killer playlist). Speaking of jogging, I know this may sound silly to some of you, but try not to jog at night, especially if you’re a younger guy. Safety is important, and believe it or not, younger men in their 20s are the most common victims of violent crime. Know where you are, jog with a friend or two, be aware of your surroundings (if your music is so loud you can’t hear the cars passing by, turn it down a notch), and have your phone available in case you need to make a call. If things look iffy, call it a night and go home. If you’re in a hospital (or freaking dead), you won’t be working out much anymore.

This may sound silly, but celebrate your results! Get excited over your gains. Take selfies, flex in the mirror, admire those veins that pop that weren’t there before. Also, little tip: the secret to getting arms that look bigger is working your triceps. They’re more of your arms than your biceps, so even though nice biceps look hot, good triceps will make you look stronger. It’ll make you look impressive! And being excited about your results from all your hard work will help keep you motivated!

Those are a lot of tips, so that’s enough for now. If you have questions that are more specific, my ask box is open and you can even message me if you’d prefer. Don’t be afraid if you don’t know anything about working out – that was once me, too. I ain’t gonna judge you, yo. Like I said, I don’t have any professional knowledge, but I figured some of what I know may be helpful. I won’t be able to answer every question you send my way, but if I can find a video or article that can, I will definitely send that your way instead. Have fun, and try and stay motivated! Best of luck on them gains, yo.

I am really really emotionally fragile about the idea of Harry just perusing the aisles at his local grocery store, little basket in hand, gently picking up a carton of organic farm fresh eggs… reaching for some milk and checking the expiration date…. standing in front of an assortment of green vegetables deciding whether he wants kale or brussel sprouts for dinner….. it’s beautifully mundane but I bet he looks like an angel doing it and I’m in pain

Ok, my mum bought these pretty towels for my new bathroom..

..the first thing that came to my mind when I saw them?

Totally this! :)

Youngjae:

Finally you had time to buy a new dress! Youngjae and you were planning a big party with his gang and since you wanted to didn’t seem to find a nice dress in your closet, you were now at the shopping mall. It didn’t take long and you found a beautiful, dark blue dress that was exactly your taste. You smiled and walked to the changing room, satisfied that you found something so fast. You tried it on and looked at yourself in the mirror. It didn’t look to bad, hopefully Youngjae would like it too.

You decided to take a picture of the dress and send it to him, so you searched for your phone and unlocked it. But instead of opening the camera you noticed that you had about 5 missed calls. All of them from your boyfriend Youngjae. Suddenly you sighed: You had forgotten to tell him that you were going out. You quickly called him back and he picked up quite fast.

„(Y/N), where the hell are you? Is everything ok? Did someone kidnap you?“

You told him that you were only going shopping and everything was fine. At first you heard nothing, then he talked to someone on the other side of the line.

„Jackson, put that machine gun away. They said the truth, they really didn’t kidnap her. Yugyeom, why are you even fighting with my bread knifes?!!“

You heard disappointed mumbling and you just had to laugh. These boys…

Bam Bam:

Bam Bam and you had planned a trip to he beach for ages, especially since he bought a mansion with a private beach last month so that you guys wouldn’t be bothered by his enemies. You were looking forward to it, not just because you liked the ocean but also because you were finally going to spend lots of time with your boyfriend. Ever since he was a part of the mafia, time for each other wasn’t something you had often.

It was two days before the trip when suddenly you facepalmed yourself out of the blue. You had planned this whole trip and considered every little detail, yet you had forgotten to buy yourself a bikini or swimsuit. Nice. Good job, (Y/N), you thought to yourself. But in the end all you could do was go and buy yourself some swimwear. The shopping mall was closing in 2 hours and tomorrow was sunday, so you had to hurry.

There were still lots of people at the mall when you arrived, and you went to your favorite store, not really hurrying anymore. At least you wouldn’t be the only costumer, that was always awkward so you avoided it. You entered the little, cute store and walked to the swimwear section.

4 stores later you finally left the shop with a bag. That hadn’t been as easy as planned, but at least you’d found a nice bikini! You made your way to the exit when suddenly, you felt arms wrapping around your waist. You jumped and tried to punch the stranger, suddenly panicking. You hadn’t even considered the fact that somebody might try to abduct or even kill you. Which wasn’t even offbeat ever since your relationship with Bam Bam went viral.

„Eum, excuse me? I searched the whole city for you, I thought you were dead, finally I found you and know your trying to punch me?“

You sighed in relief when you heard Bam Bams sulky but also amused voice. You wanted to defend yourself, but he interrupted you.

„It’s ok, don’t even bother, jagi. You’ll make it up to me anyways.“

You could basically hear the wink he gave you.

 Yugyeom:

Today you got up quite early in the morning, so Yugyeom was still asleep. You smiled at his sleeping form. He seemed so inncocent, even cute. But you knew better, neither was he innocent nor was it cute when he was killing his enemies without any effort. But that was the life he chose and you respected that decision. You walked into the kitchen to prepare some breakfast, but when you opened the fridge, you frowned. Why was it so… empty? You rolled your eyes. Probably Jin again. That hacker was eating like a beast. Since you didn’t want to wake up Yugyeom, you decided to go to the grocery store. It would only take 10 minutes, no need to leave a message for your boyfriend who was still sleeping like a stone.

You ended up leaving the store about 40 minutes later, since you’d met an old high school friend of yours and wanted to catch up with her a little bit. The two of you had exchanged phone numbers and now you where walking home in quite a good mood.

When you opened the door and went to the kitchen, an unusual scene appeared in front of you. Yugyeom and about 5 of his closest friends where sitting around the kitchen table. Their leather jackets didn’t really seem to fit the colourful flower print on the table cloth. When they saw you, they got silent. Some were watching you with amusement, some seemed to be confused. Yugyeom sighed and closed his eyes.

„There you are. Guys, just leave now. Wait. Jin, put the apple back.“

After all of them left, you sat next to Yugyeom and looked at him with a confused look.

„(Y/N). Please don’t tell me you where just grocery shopping. I think that was the first time I was actually scared.“

He pulled you onto his lap and hugged you. He really must’ve been scared for you, considering the fact that he wasn’t even mad.

„You know, I’m quite hungry now tho. And the plan me and the guys just made was extremely good, so maybe I’ll just blow up the other gang anyways.“

Favorite Writing Things: Seven Year Pens

From time to time I wanted to share a few of my favorite writing-related products.  The top item on my list is, without a doubt, the Seven Year Pen from Seltzer Goods. 

I bought my first Seven Year Pen from a book store a little over three years ago with the promise that this pen is supposed to have 7 years worth of ink. I was skeptical. As someone who writes in a notebook every single day, I go through a lot of pens. I have seen favorite pens run dry more times than I can count. I’ve tried refilling some, but more often than not, it isn’t worth the effort. So buying this pen, I figured if it even lasts a year, it’s worth it. (Now, keep in mind, I was coming off a gel pen kick where I was going through a new pen every 3 days to a week. I’ve switched to ballpoint pens just because they last longer.)

Three years later, it’s my favorite pen and even more, it’s lasted three years. Over the past few years, I’ve collected more than a few of these pens, in part because I liked the first one so much and I’m in the habit of misplacing things regularly, but I can say, it’s lasted longer than any pen I’ve ever used and it writes so well. It’s durable, cute, and comfortable to grip. As far as writing with it, it works just about as nicely as any regular pen does. It just works for significantly longer, which is really fantastic. 

To date, I haven’t replaced the ink in the pen I bought three years ago. It’s the one pen I use most, and while it doesn’t look quite as bright and shiny as the day I bought it, it’s traveled with me across the country, out of the country, gotten thrown in purses, suitcases, backpacks. The design on it is a little faded, but it works like new and that’s all that’s mattered to me.

Now more often, I buy these pens as gifts (or really, something to throw on top of a gift or go with a nice journal). They’re cute, durable, and they last. No joke, this is my top recommendation for any writer.
