man prays

“I’m just ‘out here’ man; running, praying, lifting, eating. REACHING.” • You see the thing is, I never let myself get comfortable. After I graduated from college, I told Teach For America I was good on the job (after having deferred the original offer, I guess I probably knew then). Then there was that phone interview with Barclays that I BOMBED. In all fairness the interviewer was an asshole, but he gave me the best advice: he said, in his assholeyish tone “choose a job where you like to dress the part.” That’s when I realized, figuring out what I wanted to do really wasn’t rocket science: I did the whole interview in a sports bra and running tights sitting on a stability ball. 🛎Dingdingding! . And even though the filters of Instagram make it look glamorous, it’s far— farrrrrrrrr from that. It’s a gritty and honestly embarrassing grind when you decide to make seemingly crazy and impractical decisions, based off of the thin air of belief in self and faith. And as strong a force as faith can be, it doesn’t afford you a 401k or trips to foreign countries so you can REALLY stunt on the ‘gram— at least not how I’ve gone about life and the pursuit of my dreams. So most days, I wake up like “yo idk what THE FCK I’m doing”. But for all of the struggle, there’s always some form of sweetness around the corner to keep me going. . My parents say that at 7 months I got up one day and just started walking; I presume that even at that time, I knew I was born for this very peculiar grind and decided to take a head start. I’m 28 now so most of the time I run and sprint, out of breath maybe and sometimes slower than I’d like, but regardless, my legs? still moving, b. • Basically, I’ve thrown all of my chips in on ME. And essentially: I’m just  OUT HERE.  Running,  praying, lifting,  eating,  and hopefully reaching whomever I was meant to reach.  Sit tight cuz I’m on my way, baby. ⚡️ _ 🎥:@robertscuz | @alephmedianetwork 


anonymous asked:

what other songs are on your obsessed playlist, if you don't mind me asking.

sure. i change this around a fair bit with a few staples that always stay there but here is what is in there right now. its like my current favorites from my main playlist of songs that i put in my itunes which is my big one that i will put on shuffle. 

rfi, what about us, body like a back road, better man (Lbt version), praying,11 blocks (wrabel), send my love, million reasons, dont take the money, run away with me, lets get married, better, pink skies (those two are bc of taylors pl), black, gorgeous, just breathe (pearl jam), hell no (ingrid), fuckin perfect, slow hands


Please accept my fast, even though I’ve behaved badly. Please watch over Eva and Vilde and Noora, and Chris. Please watch over Isak and Even and Elias and Yousef.

Why is no one talking about Lin Manuel Miranda’s new song “Almost like Praying”

1) it’s helping to raise awareness for Puerto Rico right now

2) It says all the 78 pueblos in Puerto Rico

3) it’s such a good song, like actually it is fucking FIRE 🔥🔥🔥

4) Puerto Rico needs all the support and help they can get right now, Hurricane Maria has literally destroyed the island.

5) All the money that is earned goes to Puerto Rico!

In all, this is an amazing song. A song for my beautiful island. Thank you Lin!

If you want to listen to it: it’s literally anywhere you can get music from.

My friend learned the hard way to not answer the door to late night trick-or-treaters

by reddit user manen_lyset

We all have that one friend who’s not into the holidays. You know the one: won’t decorate, won’t dress up, won’t wish you a happy -whatever day it is-, and, though he’ll reluctantly agree to come to your themed party, he’ll stay in the back and scowl the whole time. In most cases, the hate is directed at just one holiday, whether it be Valentines, Christmas, Easter, or, hell, even arbor day. My friend Patrick? He hated Halloween with every fiber of his being.

(Day 2: Reminiscent/New Life / Day 3: Wings / Day 4: Dejection / Day 5: Health)

no but honestly

american gods is doing what no other show has done

in the extent of what’s doing, i mean

a graphic sex scene where a woman swallows up a man through her vagina? check

a graphic sex scene between two men of color that is hot and poetic at the same time? check

a mexican jesus who gets shot by american guns while he’s saving a mexican family cross the border? check

a muslim man praying where the other two white characters stay quiet, respecting his faith despite not believing in it? check

and it’s not just for the shock of it

i fucking love this show
