live this life to the fullest

“We all die.”

Levi looked up from the book in his hands.

“You just realized?” he asked, raising an eyebrow at Eren who had draped himself dramatically over the couch.

“We all die,” Eren repeated. “Life is so short. It should be enjoyed. Life…should be lived.”

Levi rolled his eyes. He knew what this was about, but he wasn’t about to let Eren get to him. He returned his attention to his book, flipped the page, and continued reading.

“They say time is an illusion. That our perception of time is limited to a singular experience in the confines of one lifetime. But…if I could transcend time would I be able to see myself in a world where I was able to take advantage of my short existence to the fullest, in a world where I did, in fact, live life?  Or am I stuck in an infinite loop of time where meaning and purpose of life are lost to the inevitable decay of minutes, days, years?”

He sighed loudly and Levi snapped his book closed.

That was enough of this philosophical bullshit. He got up from his chair and stomped over to the couch.

“Fine,” Levi said, glaring down at Eren.

“You mean it?”

“Yes. We can go to the Festival of Color this year.”

“Aaand?”

“And I will participate,” Levi said grudgingly.

Eren squealed and pulled Levi down for a kiss. It was messy and enthusiastic, much like this festival was bound to be, much like Eren. When Levi thought about it that way it didn’t seem so bad. Levi pressed into the kiss and climbed onto the couch so he was straddling Eren’s hips.

“That was easier than I thought it’d be,” Eren said once they broke apart, hands running up and down Levi’s sides. “So…about the Polar Plunge in a few weeks…”

“Don’t push your luck.”

Eren sighed. “We all die.

Cheeky shit. Levi leaned down to quiet him with another kiss.

“Now is the time for you to take the center stage. The whole world is waiting for you. Don’t forget what it is you want. Now is the time to take off. Fulfill your dream. Only you can make it a reality. Live your life. Dance your dream. Sing, sing… Sing your own song. Do the fullest, play to the fullest, and discover. Find your path, and go above and beyond it! Now is your beginning. Live your own life. Now is the time to start. This is your time.” Otabek Altin

thinking about all the good carrie left behind. her wonderful daughter, all the girls and women who were and are inspired by her strength, all her books and gift with words, her unmatched self-awareness and humor, facing mental illness and addiction and dedicating her life to helping others recover. she lived the fullest life in her short time with us and was truly one of brightest lights in our galaxy. rest in peace, carrie, knowing your legacy will live on.

Attack on Titan is and always has been imperialist propaganda written by a Nazi supporter. The idea of the walls and their fragility is meant to criticize Japan’s antiwar policy, and the Titans coming back after 100 years is meant to imply that if Japan doesn’t start having wars and breaking down their “walls” and conquering the East again, other countries will come to terrorize the region. What bothers me most having watched the first season of it is the line about “Living like livestock”. It asserts the notion that to live without imperialism is a form of complacency, like somehow the country isn’t living life to its fullest if it isn’t out pillaging and raping the peoples of Korea, Manchuria, Indonesia, the Pacific Islands, etc. I will say that it’s actually really poorly written, so the ideas the writer has don’t come across super strongly, but it’s still seriously dangerous stuff.

Add to that the fact that so many characters have German names and that the setting seems to have a lot of european and specifically German vegetation and architecture becomes obvious that the writer wants viewers to feel nostalgic for the Axis Powers. It’s really infuriating to me as a Jewish person because it’s supporting a political climate under which the genocide of my people could resume even when we just now have the same Jewish population worldwide as we did pre-Holocaust. It’s fucked up and now that people are talking about it coming back for a second season after so long I want to urge you all to please boycott it.

Maybe you just have to live for the small things, like being called pretty or someone picking up the pen you dropped or laughing so hard that your stomach hurts. Maybe that’s all that really matters at the end of the day.

If you really want to live your life to the fullest and realize your greatest potential, you must be willing to run the risk of making some people mad. People may not like what you do, people may not like how you do it, but these people are not living your life. You are.

Someone once told me to always live for the little things in life. Live for 5am sunrises and 5pm sunsets where you’ll see colours in the sky that don’t usually belong. Live for road trips and bike rides with music in your ears and the wind in your hair.

Live for days when you’re surrounded by your favourite people who make you realise that the world is not a cold, harsh place. Live for the little things because they will make you realise that this is what life is about, this is what it means to be alive.

I think one of my favorite feelings is laughing with someone and realizing halfway through how much you enjoy them and their existence in your life
