Women deserve to be comfortable in public. We deserve to wear loose clothes, we deserve to sit however we please and we deserve to leave the house without preparing ourselves for the outside world first. Why do I need to have at-home-outfits and outside-outfits? Why do I feel like I have to get in tight, uncomfortable pants just to go grocery shopping? If men deserve to be comfortable outside and still be respected, then so do we.
Life would be so much more fun if I were pretty. I would actually enjoy getting dressed up, putting on makeup, and going out. I could focus on so many other things instead of fixating on being ugly. Imagine the friends I’d have! Imagine what its like to be pretty and do your makeup!! Imagine taking selfies with your friends!! Posting selfies on instagram and getting comments from your friends building you up and telling you how gorgeous you are! Imagine going on dates! Imagine getting free drinks and stuff from men!Imagine what shopping and trying on clothes is like being pretty! The simple, seemingly basic things that I dont get to enjoy sound so amazing. And pretty women take it all for granted.
anyways i hope rhodey and tony grow up to be old together as cranky and silly men who go shopping together at like second hand stores and always get into little fights about the things they are purchasing because we don’t need another shower seat tony idc if it has a massage setting and i dunno they just sit out on the porch of their cute little yellow painted bungalow and still argue if iron man or war machine is cooler
this friendly Nova guy here? That’s Rhomann Dey, the one guy who arrested Peter
multiple times in the past, was fully aware of Peter’s upbringing as a Ravager
and his life as an Outlaw, but still laughed at Peter’s cheeky attitude,
conversed rather friendly with him and believed him when Peter wanted to help
actually headcanon that Dey was one of the very first officer to ever arrest
Peter – back when Peter was still a child – and he just developed a soft spot
for the cheeky, rude child.
This is not the piece written with @mollyraesly–that one is still being worked on and we’re excited to share it with you all soon! This was written for February @jilychallenge with given prompt: you’re a pirate pillaging my village and instead of stealing an item you steal me WTF AU (Rated: M)
first thing Lily noticed while hiding behind the barrel of apples was the way
his messy black hair stuck out of his red bandana in every which way. The
second thing she noticed were his eyes because they fluttered right over to her
hiding spot, sparking indignantly. He entered the tiny produce shop with his eyes
lit up with the thrill of the chase, or plunder, or whatever it was that
was Lily’s second raid without her father. Lily had managed to convince his
father that raids happened once in a blue moon that she could handle herself
alone for the few months he went back to England to marry her sister off. The
produce store they sold goods from wasn’t a high target for pirates, since they
mostly sold fruit that would spoil during long sea trips. That didn’t stop the
pirates from exploring as much as they could.
last raid Lily had been more prepared and she hid in the loft above her head.
The loft had pull away steps for safety. Currently stuck behind barrels of apples,
Lily was an easy grab. She struggled to make herself smaller, wishing
desperately she had grabbed the fire stick for protection that sat useless away
from her by the crackling stove.
pirate didn’t seem like the last crew that had burned a neighbor’s house. He
seemed young and curious. She watched as best she could as he let his fingers
slip over the countertops, pocketing various things as he went. Lily didn’t
care about anything he grabbed off the prep table as long as he left the shop.
the shop she could hear the shouts of her fellow townsfolk. They were a small
English trading post off the coast of the main island and had little in the way
of protection from pirates. Lily’s own father was one of the fifty or so men
sworn to protect the island from pirates. Normally pirates left the small
trading post but sometimes the unprotected town was too much for pirates to
the last raid the pirates didn’t come into the shop so Lily’s curiosity got the
best of her as he made his way over to one of the barrels and plucked an apple
from it. He had to be around her age, no older than nineteen. There was still a
boyish charm to his features that intrigued Lily. As he took a bite of the
apple she leaned too far forwards and fell to the ground.
pirate dropped the apple, grabbed her by the arm and yanked her to a standing
position all in one swift swoop. Before she could shout for help he held a
sharp silver blade to her neck.

Going Shopping: Stress Relief or Necessary Burden?
It is almost a rule nowadays to associate smiling happy women and
frowning men while going shopping and buying clothes. The reverse might
be true when we talk about buying computers or different technical
equipment. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but,
generally, we tend to associate more women spending too much time on
choosing and buying things like nice clothes, accessories or jewelry,
whereas men tend to do more substantial and planned purchases. But why
do we, in general, spend so much time on shopping? Why do some people
even become addicted to shopping?
We are living in a high-speed society, which puts a lot of pressure
on us demanding to be good at different things: to have a nice job, to
be a good parent, to have a lot of interests and hobbies, to speak
several foreign languages, etc. As we fail something or cannot do
everything at once, we might often feel stressed. This stress has to be
relieved somehow or, otherwise, the tension will grow to the extent that
we might even get sick. Retail therapy can be one of many ways to elevate the mood and get rid of stress.
I have tried retail therapy personally and I can say that it does
work. Buying a silk scarf or silver earrings after a hard working week
does make you feel much better. It is a kind of reward you give to
yourself as if saying: “You did a good job. You deserve to have this
silk scarf”. And it is not even the thing itself that brings so much
joy, but rather the process of going shopping, choosing one scarf among
many others, trying them all on. It really can take you more than two
hours to buy some small and, usually, irrelevant thing. It can be
compared to going to a café and drinking coffee with your friends for
more than an hour. You can have the same coffee at home, but it’s not
really the coffee that matters, but the atmosphere in the café, nice
background music, talking to your friends. For the majority of men (with
the exceptions, of course) it might be difficult to understand how one
can spend hours buying a scarf. Maybe, that’s because men tend to be
more practical, maybe because they are more interested in other things
than buying clothes. Furthermore, I noticed that men often get irritated
when they have to spend too much time shopping, and it might even be
‘dangerous’ to ask your boyfriend to go shopping with you and spend
hours there. Asking myself why it is so, I suddenly came to realize that
shopping can be both very entertaining and frustrating depending on
your mood, interests and whether you buy things that you like or things
that you really have to buy. Somehow, when you absolutely have to buy
something, especially quickly, the fun of going shopping disappears and
shopping turns into a kind of burden.
I remember spending several days looking for beige shoes that would
go with the dress I was supposed to wear as a bridesmaid at my friend’s
wedding party. I was short of time and all the shoes I found were either
way too expensive or uncomfortable or not my size. It wasn’t fun at
all. The same situation happens when I have to buy some practical things
I need for my house. Being not technically proficient, I also find it
difficult to make a right choice. In such a case, retail therapy turns
into a retail nightmare. To eliminate this kind of stress from my life, I
found online shopping particularly useful, especially when I have to
buy some home appliances
as I can choose myself when to look at the goods, to read reviews, to
contact customer support with additional questions. I still prefer
buying clothes in shops, trying things on, touching the material, but I
can eliminate some stress by doing online shopping when it comes to
buying some other necessary things.
As in every situation, there are two sides of one coin, and since
everybody’s experience is unique, it is important to choose for oneself
how much time to spend on shopping, how and where to buy things. Going
shopping does relieve stress, but only when you do it the way that is
most suitable for you.
Summary: How Steve Rogers meets his soulmate, you. Set to To Whom It May Concern by The Civil Wars
Author’s Note: I decided to join the Songfic Challlenge that @caplanbuckybarnes set up, and I had fun doing so! I love this song and I already had the idea for it, so I thought I would use it. I’m not sure how good it is, but I hope you like it! Sorry for any spelling or grammatical errors. Also, sorry it’s so short.

Your whole life, you’ve been told about soulmates. Why they exist, how they’re meant for each other, and even stories of how they meet each other. One thing you were never told, though, is who yours is. The only information you have about your soulmate is when you’ll meet them. For every day since you turned eighteen, your thoughts turned to your soulmate, and you imagined what your life would be like with them.
For Steve though, he was disheartened the day he came of age. According to the date on his wrist, he wouldn’t meet his soulmate until he was nearly a hundred years old. Would he even be alive then? Still, Steve remained hopeful.
I missed you but I haven’t met you Oh but I want to How I do
You didn’t know what to say when your foster mother told you that Henry had left to live with his birth mother. He’d mentioned the man that’d come to the house. The way he was dressed and the car he’d arrived in. You could see him ticking things over every night after. You and him had been like two peas in a pod ever since he arrived at the foster home. You were either the best of friends or at each other’s throats. You told each other everything. That’s why it’d hurt so much when Henry didn’t even tell you himself that he wasn’t coming back.
You stewed on it for months. Eventually you realised you were so angry because he’d meant more to you then just being a friend. You felt like he’d broken your heart.
It was on your eighteenth birthday that you went a little nuts by the villages standards at least. Henry had always talked about it to you and every time you went passed that little wishing well it reminded you of him. You didn’t use dynamite like he’d always planned. You took the sledgehammer from your foster father’s kit and dragged it down to the village green.
Request: Their first fight (like the real one where they see they have strong personalities but with a happy ending just because - like Tommy crawling into bed late at night cause he can’t sleep away)
Draft Cards - Tommy Shelby | part of the Able series
You found Tommy’s draft card on the nightstand by his bed when you stayed over that weekend. He had gone down to the betting shop to work and, as you were getting dressed, you noticed the card sticking out from underneath a book. You knew that snooping in his room was bad but you were curious when you saw his signature on the part of the card that was sticking out. You pulled the card out and read over it.
I’ve read lots of “How To” job post on how to meet wealthy men. But a lot of them are paraprofessional jobs (i.e. air hostess, car dealership, etc) that require a lot of time, training, and unavailable commitment. But, if you’re in school and or just in between SDs and need to make ends meet. Here are some decent, everyday, and easy part time jobs that also keep your eyes on the prize.
1. 💊 Cashier at a Pharmacy: in wealthy subdivisions ONLY. Hardly anyone is exempt from needing an Rx here or there. Esp. old, high net worth, highly stressed men. lol
2. 🕋 Front Desk at A Hotel: For obvious reasons. This is a job that I heavily considered BUT, be careful. Most hotel chains have a strict “No Fraternizing with Guest” policy, even off premises! This can apply to casino workers also. This can be kind of counterproductive, which is why I chose not to pursue. But hey, maybe you can!
3. 🥃Bartender: at High End restaurants ONLY. Bar tending can be kind of stressful, UNLESS, you’re meeting rich men every night. So, def aim for the high end bars.
❗️But not serving.
I served for years. But found, that no matter how many wealthy men were attracted to me. They simply WERE NOT going to risk the indiscretion to exchange contact with “the help” over a table full of business pals & colleagues who, ALSO know they’re married. Bars attract solo patrons and tend to be more discreet.
4. 🍺 Concession Stands: at professional/college sports stadiums and arenas. Get those beer mugs ready! lol.
5. 👔 Luxury MEN retailers: any Men’s Warehouse, Polo, Hugo, etc in the mall. Mmmm 😋
6. 🍷Quality Steak, Specialty Foods, & Wine Shops: Most men who are wealthy tire/bore of the fancy restaurants and business-over-dinner meals. So they end up grilling, cooking, and drinking at home alone. Yet they still want and seek quality in their food.
7. ✈️ Retailers, Restaurants, Vendors IN an airport:
I remember being lost at the Raleigh-Durham Int Airport trying to find my terminal. And every now and then I would walk past a watch shop or restaurant/grill only to see some succulently wealthy looking man by himself or sitting at the bar. If only I knew then what I know now, lol.
8. 🏌Country Club: bartender or golf services.
9. 💻 Cashier/Specialist: at technology retailers or any place that sells high end gadgets.
