love means having to say you're sorry

anonymous asked:

This is probably gonna be a quite rude sounding question, but how do you not get bored of doing the "same job" every day? (I swear this isn't meant to be as mean as it sounds!!) I'm 18 and going to Uni soon, but the prospect of doing the same sort of thing every day for a long time sounds horrible to me. I know you love your job and you're incredible at it, but do you ever get bored of it, and how do you combat that?

Well.. I’m sorry to say, but that’s pretty much what a job is, welcome to being an adult, we do the same thing every day and have very little free time :P

But that’s also why it’s really important to actually like and enjoy doing what you choose to do. Not everyone will have that opportunity, especially not straight out of school. Sooner or later you have to do things you don’t want to do, that’s life. I’ve had several jobs I didn’t want or like, in fact most of my jobs I didn’t want or like. But you have to pay the bills somehow. By then it becomes a trade-off of “what can I put up with while I wait for the weekend to start”. Which is basically how I lived my life up until I started working with Jack last year.

It sounds cynical and depressing, but I’m not gonna sugar-coat it. You’ll have to find ways of making it work, music, making friends at the workplace, maybe working part time at different places for variety etc. If you DO have something you want to do, keep doing that in your spare time. If you’re lucky, you’ll end up making a job of it. Not every day is going to be fun, regardless of what you do, sometimes you just have off-days. Which is where pride is a good thing. I always want to take pride in what I do, even when I did work I didn’t like I still made sure to do a good job because I never wanted someone to point to me and say I didn’t care.

So basically, primary goal, find something you can put up with, to support yourself. Secondary goal, do the thing you actually want to do in your spare time. Don’t count on it to work. If it does, great, if it doesn’t, well as long as you can pay the bills you’ll get to keep doing it in your spare time. Compromise. And never spend all the money you make. Always, always, save. You will need it, at some point.

Say, if Hunk and Pidge had godly parents, as in, pjo style, who would they be? Sorry for my bad English btw. (You're super cool too C: )

Hunk is definitely a Hephaestus kid! Hunkules just got a way with all his tinkering! And being able to produce fire with his hands like Leo—HELL YES. Also I want him in Steampunk clothes because I have a mighty need for that. He frequents Cabin 4 because Demeter kids love him, I mean, who doesn’t love Hunk tbh? He gets free access to the cabin’s amazing cooking tools. Being a Hephaestus kid can be tiring, so he goes there to bake and cook food and shares it with everyone. He built his own dragon at the age of seven—a fire breathing mechanical dragon because no one wanted to play with him. He loves giving smiles to anyone he meets and it usually lifts their spirits. He’s the best boy, no competition.

Pidge is an Athena kid for obvious reasons: she’s a prodigy. Don’t have godly powers like the rest? Well, she’s definitely the smartest and techie of them all. Everyone respects her and looks up to her (just don’t tell her she’s small because she will smite you). The whole gang protects her but Shiro or Keith teaches her some moves whenever she’s free. Hunk and her get to bond a lot because YOU JUST GET ME, HUNK. Shiro and her spend time together discussing battle strategies and Shiro really appreciates her input. She’s the very first one to actually talk to Keith and she knew from then on that she will like this guy. They’re the conspiracy theorists, I JUST KNOW ALIENS ARE REAL, KEITH. I MEAN, WE’RE DEMIGODS WHO SAYS THEY AREN’T?

I know you’re not asking for the rest but I’m doing it anyway.

Lance is a Poseidon kid. Yes, he’s one of The Big Three and he brags about it. “Whacha say to my big three face?” Then he threatens them with his powers, but he’s mostly joking around about it. He’s very well liked. He thinks he’s special, he was after all, the first big three kid to arrive until he wasn’t. He loves water and just loves swimming the whole day but he loves hanging out with Hunk and Pidge the most. He dubbed them as “Tres Diablos” and Hunk is scandalized! All three of them like to prank people around. He loooves randomly breaking out into a song because he’s got such a wonderful voice and he gets all flattered when girls compliment him for it. There’s a rumour going around that people usually think he’s a child of Aphrodite at first, Hunk and Pidge knows it was Lance himself who spread it. lmao

Shiro is definitely a child of The Big Three. He’s the son of Zeus, and boy is Zeus proud of him. He arrives together with Keith because best friends stick together. He’s the tallest and everyone was just at awe knowing A CHILD OF ZEUS WAS IN THEIR PRESENCE HOLY SHIT. He looks so regal too which didn’t help a lot. He has a growing fanclub and they like to tease him about it. Definitely the leader of the gang. Being a child of the god of the gods, he feels all the pressure to be Mr. Perfect but at the end of the day he just likes to spend time with Keith and watch movies while eating left over pizza. The theme song of his life is “I’m Just A Kid” by Simple Plan, the rest find it hilarious while Keith is the only one who tears up about it because he knows. Also Shiro can fly and sometimes when he’s staring off into space, he’s not aware he’s floating until Keith taps him “You’re doing it again.”

Keith is a child of Hades. Yes, I freakin went there. He’s closed off and likes to stick around Shiro all the time. He’s quiet but he’s very observant which is why you don’t want to piss him off because you’d want him to be in your team when it comes to battles. He’s the most skilled when it comes to wielding a sword. He lived by himself until Shiro found him so he knows self defense the most. Most people don’t want to approach him because DAMMIT KEITH THE FLOWERS ARE WILTING WHEREVER YOU WALK. But it’s not his fault. Hades kids are just like that. He can summon the dead and he spars with dead warriors which was how Shiro found him and was impressed. With the ability to shadow travel, he sneaks around at night to Cabin 1 because Cabin 13 just feels so cold and he got used to a certain someone’s warmth. He’s actually the most powerful demigod but he doesn’t want people to know. He is Hades’ favourite so he gets to “unlock” the most powers.

Hades visits Keith at camp and everyone is surprised

  • Client: Wow, guess Trooper isn't gay!
  • Me: I'm sorry?
  • Client: He is really fighting that thermometer! We always joke that he's gay but guess not.
  • Me: I don't understand.
  • Client: You know...
  • Me: I'm afraid I don't. Please explain to me.
  • Client: I mean... like... you know. Gay guys like things in their butts.
  • Me: Ooh ok. So all gay guys like anal penetration. That's what you're saying?
  • Client: Yeah. They love getting things up there.
  • Me: I'll have to tell that to my boyfriend.

Hiya! Hope you're having a good day ^.^. I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on how you texture your art on digital? I mean if you don't want to that's fine just ignore this ask. Just want to say I love your art as well and it's inspired me to start my own art blog :)

Sorry for my super late reply (this sat in my inbox for quite a while orz) but as I finally have a workflow I’m kind of comfortable in I’m very much willing to share it and try to explain some stuff ♡ I’m not sure what you mean by texturing my art, I guess I just paint? :’D So I’ll just explain how I build my image!

I work in Photoshop CC!

I always start out with a super rough sketch to get the idea down (this normally takes only some minutes): 

More steps under the cut!

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry”

When George first screamed at his beloved wife Denise until he was red in the face, he never apologized. Eventually Denise learned to scream back.

When Denise’s palm left a plum coloured mark on her darling son Billy’s face, she never apologized. She handed him a bag of frozen peas and told him to tell his teacher he got hurt at baseball.

When Billy’s best girl got smart with him, he left a series of dark fingerprints on her left arm. They never talked about it ever again and they got married after high school.

Years after Billy’s beautiful little girl Sarah went to the hospital with a broken wrist from a bike accident that never really happened, she sat in a therapist’s office and unconsciously ran her fingers over the long-healed break.

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry”, she hollowly recited, and the therapist listened.

When Sarah went home to her son Jack and snapped at him when he asked for chicken nuggets too many times, she apologized and sat him down. Sarah told him about George and Denise and Billy and his best girl and all about what love is really about.

She told him that real love means saying thank you and I’m sorry. She told him about being vulnerable and honest and kind and gentle, and then they toasted the future with a bowl of chicken nuggets.

anonymous asked:

i'm having so much trouble concentrating on my paper it's like i know i have to do it but i just cant get myself to actually DO IT i dont know what's wrong with me, not even studyblr is keeping me motivated anymore look i know im probably just wasting your time by sending you this message but i dont know who else to talk to and you're my favorite studyblr so yeah i'm sorry i just dont know what to do im so stressed out i want to have a decent output but im so afraid i'll fail :(

Hellooo my love! First of all, thank you so much! That means a lot :-) I’ll start with some words of encouragement and say you can absolutely do it, even if it is smaller pieces. I’ll list a few things that help me concentrate, yet get motivated:

  • draft it - I have started drafting every essay/assessment/task I do because it helps sooo much. It gives me an idea what they markers are looking for, what I should and want to include. I’m able to roughly plan out the structure and what needs to be added or researched. It also means I can come back it again and again for reference. I always feel having a draft makes the process less daunting since I’ve already got an idea - I’m not starting from scratch.
  • break it down (dance wise, obviously) - once you’ve got that plan, you can mark out the key areas you need to do. For example, an introduction! When I’m typing up an assessment, I tend to write out the key headers so I have an easy to work with the list. If I add mini bullet point ideas from my draft, that usually helps with the cohesion of the work.
  • do small sections - recently I’ve been using my pomodoro session tracker printable in conjunction with my Forest app. It has been so good for keeping me on track and recording my progress. Even though I take breaks (both long and short), it keeps me coming back which is the key thing. I try to work in 20-30 minute sessions. Usually, I can hold my attention for that time then I do something else for a couple of minutes.
  • skip bits - sometimes you’ll be working strongly and then hit a wall. You go blank and have no idea what to write next or just blatantly don’t want too. In these instances, just move on. Write in a reminder such as [come back to this: remember to mention Jones (2012) theory on … and compare to Smith (2004)]. This way you can keep going and don’t have to interrupt your flow. Definitely a good way to not let the time pressure yet stress stop you from working.
  • listen to music - generally I’d recommend soft music without lyrics but honestly listening to my regular playlist is so motivating for me. I’ll sometimes have a good jam for a few minutes or just have it in the background. I’ve managed to learn how to be able to focus well whilst listening to it so it actually helps me. Especially with essay writing - I type to the music so I think and type faster hah!
  • think about getting it done - the sooner you’re done, the more time you have to edit. One of the worst things is completing a task, reading it over and thinking “man, this is shit” but not having time to go back and edit. The earlier you finish, the earlier you can go in and make those changes to ensure it really is good work! I will always use grammarly.com to check things over but sometimes will send it to a friend. In a group chat I have with a couple of friends, we usually proofread each others stuff even though I’m doing communications, another is doing business and another is doing psychology! 

I hope this helps! Best of luck with everything xx

No, criticism of Emma Swan that talks about her becoming a Stepford wife is not the same as saying a strong female character can’t fall in love, get, married, and have kids. That is not what the criticism is about.

What it is about is that ONE THING becoming her defining characteristic.

I’m sorry, but if you think her growing up and learning to love means that she has to accept every shitty thing her boyfriend does without more than a “that was kinda bad, lol”, if you think that means that Emma’s happy ending isn’t getting to fight for her son and his happy ending… Then I don’t fucking understand your definition of “strong female character.”

"what else am I supposed to think???" - first of all, let me send some hugs your way, dear Jess 😘😘 I know you're hurting and I'm sorry. Second of all, let me give you an advice on what to think: Caitriona and Sam are a couple and have been for years. It doesn't mean they can't have friendships outside of that. Sam went to the wedding as a friend to Mackenzie and her brother, Caitriona stayed in L.A. for business reasons. All is well in their world. It should be in yours, too. Much love x

Okay whatever you say Sam

I will not draw dnp as much as I used to tho and I will only post phanart on Tumblr (here lol)

Thank you everyone for all the nice comments sorry for being a mess and made you guys worry ily all so much and thank you for the support ! ♥︎

dear 2am reader
with a half-written suicide note
signed by dreams of permanent escape, 
i’ve been where you are.
which is not to say i understand.
which is not to say—i’m sorry.
so maybe a sunrise wouldn’t be enough to save you;
i think it wouldn’t be enough for me either.
the last time you felt joy is remembered, barely
what with earthquakes cracking around your ears
and you half-deaf to disaster. but i want to tell you this:
don’t break the promises you made to your best friend
when you said you’d be there for them forever.
one of these days, wrest an apology from your parents
for the shit they’ve put you through; you deserve it.
make sure your younger siblings get a chance to be
all that you never were. try not to leave anyone behind.
you won’t run out of words; you’ll only run out of time,
so use what you have while you can. i’m sorry—
which is to say, you have a lot left to live for.
i hope you do. i hope you do. i hope you do.

Hi, I'm Layla! My best friend and his boyfriend died at Pulse last year, and I knew some of the others who got shot as well. What happened that night changed my life, and it's been really tough for my whole community. I'm honestly dreading tomorrow. I just wanted to let you know that what you're doing means the world to me. Love always wins, and you're spreading quite a bit of it. I really hope you can still manage to have a fantastic birthday, much love ❤️💛💚💙💜

Layla, I am so incredibly sorry about the loss of your friends. In Judaism, when we lose loved ones, it’s customary to say “May their memory be a blessing,” and regardless of religion or creed, I truly hope the memories you have of your best friend and his boyfriend from before the tragedy can be a source of light for you that enables a part of them to live on with you always. 

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes. Please know that I will be thinking of you and your friends all day tomorrow, and that I will never let this tragedy be forgotten.
