moments-of-joy

six random facts about me

I was tagged by @zaftigwriter. She was in town for a couple days working/visiting and she’s on a plane back east at the moment.

1. I am having a root canal tomorrow. The folklore I hear is that they’re quite painful, but it doesn’t involve sedation or pain meds, so I hope the anecdotal reports are exaggerated.

2. I wear a big vintage (late 1970s/early 1980s) Rolex watch. It’s a dive watch and it was my dad’s. My brother and I used to love to see the glow-in-the-dark number dots and hands in the dark at bedtime.

3. I had a super SUPER fun time having dinner with @zaftigwriter and our friend Julie last night. We were laughing loudly and wildly. I felt moments of pure joy with my dearest friends.

4. I’ve realized in the past year and a half that I have always kept men at arm’s length in relationships. I’ve not been emotionally intimate in the context of a romantic partnership.

5. I am wearing the same clothes I put on Tuesday. They weren’t gross or stinky, so why not get the most out of an outfit and decrease my laundry needs? But day three is my limit, they will join the dirty clothes tonight.

6. I’m not pleased with the facts I selected for this post. I want to start over with cooler facts about me. I have a deep seated fear of not being cool. These days I’m old enough not to act on this fear, and I strive for authenticity rather than coolness. In pursuit of said authenticity, I won’t revise my six facts because duh.

Now I don’t know who to tag to do the six facts about him/herself! Heather already tagged a bunch of folks I know, and I’m just recently back to tumblr. I’ll try. @bekaboo @beegoould @hthrloo @ryanjjohn @eternaltoska @cherokeepurple @casaofjules2 @bestillmybeefyheart @sugarforsalt

january 1, 2017 | new year’s resolutions 

1. Be happy. Fill out the 52 Lists for Happiness every week. Revel in the small moments that give you joy. Pull friends closer and cut out negativity. Meditate.

2. Love yourself. Become the person you would fall in love with. Eat healthy, exercise, sleep and prioritize yourself. Learn to accept mistakes and failure. 

3. Read for pleasure. Schedule time for it. Reading is one of the great joys of life. It’s about time you rediscover it. 

4. Make good art. Carry your sketchbook everywhere. “Do not try to paint the grandiose thing. Paint the commonplace so that it will be distinguished.”

5. Journal. Make time for it, because it is so worth it. You will learn new things, make sense of yourself, and decompress. Later, it will be so so important. 

6. Learn new things. Do it out of your own self-interest. Be open-minded, and remember that lessons can come from anyone, anywhere. 

7. Seize opportunities. Stretch your comfort zone. Do not be afraid to believe. You will not regret the things you did, only the things you didn’t do. 

You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.
—  Anthony Robbins

A little late… Black Jack’s cast wishes you MERRY CHRISTMAS!

© to @rem289 who wanted me to post this sketch because the idea behind it was mine, but she’s the only one who was able to capture this beautiful moment of joy~ THEY’RE ALL SO CUTE I DON’T EVEN–

(and stay tuned, tonight I’ll publish some Black Jack extra content on AO3!)

Giggly, exhausted Hyogi

I don’t know about you, but I love seeing Louis like in this last interview. There were so many moments of joy and laughter. He’s constantly joking, he’s not holding back. Flamboyant and giggly and swearing and beautiful. I love that he can be that way around Steve, I love Steve for making him feel this level of comfortable. It’s so great to see Louis being LOUIS in these moments. I missed him.

We all know that just after the death star was blown to stardust across the sky luke got very very drunk, balanced on R2 and careened through the Rebel base, whooping with joy. R2 screamed “FUCK YEAH WE WONNN” and Leia joined in, chasing after them, trying to wrangle luke off the droid, her hair coming loose and a smile bright as the galaxy on her face, and the twins laughed and laughed, and han swigged from a hipflask, sighed and said something along the lines of “well if you can’t beat them” and jumped into the fray, scooping both luke and leia into his arms, depositing them on the floor and mounting R2 with great ceremony. “onwards!” and off R2 surges, smuggler on board and two exuberant nineteen year olds chasing him. There’s joy. Celebration. And, in the morning, a collective hangover so potent that had the Empire attacked then and there they would have obliterated the Rebellion entirely

THINGS TO DO TODAY
  1.  Wake up
  2.  Cry about Mark Pellegrino coming back to SPN
  3.  Re-watch 12x12 ending scene
  4.  Call everyone I know and tell them that the true Lucifer has returned.
  5.  Repeat steps 2 and 3 until I pass out clutching my laptop or a priest is called to intervene. 😈
