  • Released his debut self-titled album, which was well received by critics and was #1 in 87 counties. It is the highest first week sales for a British male’s debut album since 1991 and has been certified gold in six countries.
  • Did a week-long stint on ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden,’ where he participated in Carpool Karaoke and other skits, delivered one of the opening monologues, and performed a different song every night 
  • Covered The Sunday Times Magazine, where he personally reached out to the writer to arrange the interview
  • Announced a second tour in stadium venues for 2018

  • Performed in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge during its 50th anniversary special, where he covered ‘The Chain’ by Fleetwood Mac and ‘Wild Thoughts’ by Rihanna, DJ Khaled, and Bryson Tiller
  • Performed at the Grammy Museum, where he was also interviewed on his songwriting process
  • Began his debut tour in September in front of a sold-out San Francisco crowd

  • Is in conversation for multiple Grammy Awards (among other music awards), while Dunkirk is in contention for Best Picture at the Oscars and other film awards

Most importantly, he achieved all of this while promoting kindness (and being kind himself), embracing love in all forms, encouraging originality, being authentic and unapologetic with his music and stage presence, pushing the boundaries of pop music, never ceasing to show love to his fans, working extremely hard and making no excuses, and having a bit of fun. 

You’ve got a bright future ahead, kid, and I can’t wait to see what you accomplish next

An illustration of what’s wrong with capitalism in America:

Worrying yourself to shreds over whether you’ll be able to pay the rent because you’ve been sick for three days and only have enough PTO to cover one of them (and no I couldn’t go to the doctor because I have no health insurance and no savings).

Plus having to commute an hour-plus to work on Black Friday (on major highways no less) when you probably won’t be feeling much better but can’t afford to miss more time, because a miscommunication in upper management means that working from home that day isn’t on the table.

Plus looking at all of this from a birds-eye view and realizing that you will not be able to afford holiday gifts for anyone this year, and the possibility of taking time off to visit family before the new year is pretty much nil.

And to put all this into perspective:

My job is fulltime, pays less than $12.00 an hour, and requires upwards of two hours of commuting per work day because there was nothing any closer than that which paid above minimum wage and would hire me, either because my previous work experience made me “overqualified,” or because for some silly reason it required a 2-year degree to answer phones.

Expectation:

Reality:

((OOC: I just did a Merope Gaunt makeup test. I hate it. Assume you’ll never see her again.))

Everyone else started to fight to keep their doubts quiet, until Saeyoung let out a loud gasp- all eyes turned to the planchette slightly moving on the board. “We have made contact! Oh great spirit, what is your name?” Everyone watched with baited breath as the wooden marker started at the ’S’, moving to the ‘E’, then to the 'N’, ’D’, 'N’, 'U’, ’D’, 'E’, and ’S’ respectively. Throwing his hands up, Zen pushed himself away from the table.

“SAEYOUNG YOU ASS, YOU CAN’T PRETEND TO BE A GHOST AND JUST SPELL OUT 'SEND NUDES’. This is ridiculous!” he grabbed Saeyoung by the front of the shirt, pulling him close, his eyes boring into the younger mans. “If you’re going to keep messing with us, we’re just going to leave.”

“Does that mean you won’t send the ghost nudes?” Saeyoung muttered under his breath, suddenly waving his hands when everyone started to get up, “Okay okay okay!! I was kidding! Please sit back down, let’s actually try now!”

Hi! 💕 I was tagged by @milky-waee to do the “8 selfies of 2017″, and by @sunshiningdae, @suchently, @savemeilikeexo, @junmie@achenlove and @theloveinkimkai to do the bias selfie tag (whoa that’s a lot of people, sorry it took such a long time to do this!!) so I decided to mix them! 💕 A big thank you to @achenlove who let me use her phone and helped me figure everything out! 😆💗

I almost never take selfies so I don’t really have any saved… but I decided to take them all today (cue a lot of changing clothes and getting soaked outside 😅) but I had fun and actually don’t hate the outcome~ Also I tried to add stuff into them but discovered I needed both my hands to take the pictures (I’m so bad at this!) so I only kept the scenarios I had in mind - all under the cut, since they are too long! (/▽\*)。o○♡

Oh, and everyone I’ve mentioned can consider themselves tagged if they want to, and also @suhosbulge, @loey-chenosaurs, @cant-spell-slay-without-lay and everyone who wants to do it~ (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡
