money is the real meaning of riches

Real talk

Does Lin-Manuel Miranda know how much hope he has given so many people with Hamilton? I mean, I can’t speak for anyone else, but my family isn’t very well off. I never thought I would go anywhere, despite my good grades or passion or detemination, I knew that my parents just did not have enough money to send me to my college of choice.
Then Hamilton came along.
Hamilton, as you all know, is the story of founding father Alexander Hamilton. Our buddy Hamilton was also hella not rich, just like me!!! But he was so persistent and he was so eloquent and he achieved so much even if he didn’t have the money to do so!!! Like!!! Buddy!!! I can also do that!!! I can make a difference!!! I can go to whatever the fuck college I want to!!! Thank you, Mr. Miranda, for writing something that gave this determined cinnamon roll hope!!!

I'd love to see some modern wesper headcanons 😉

oh my god Y E S

- jesper loves making playlists for wylan even though their taste in music is very different (wylan is more into instrumentals and jesper likes catchy, upbeat pop songs that may or may not have some hidden innuendo)
- he also gives them cute titles like “you better work wy!!” which is a car playlist to get wylan going in the morning or “let’s get it wy-on” which ofc is a sexy playlist and wylan gets extremely flustered everytime he sees it (either in one of his work folders or his ipod)
- while we’re on that topic, jesper LOVES to push wylan’s buttons and see him get 150% shades of bright pink
- wylan may be hella rich and everything but i’m ready to bet anything they still live in a small cozy flat and order takeout and drink root beer and cheap wine bc they know the true meaning of money and wy would NEVER let it go to his head like that
- jesper has THE BEST fashion sense… i’m talking reece king realness
- wylan takes after his adoptive father, kaz brekker, and runs his biological trashbag of a father’s, jojo van evil, business like a mothereffin BOSS (which he is but i mean like a pro)
- i have this very vivid image of them playing games on jesper’s playstation
- wylan’s a sore loser and jesper adores his pout more than anything in the entire world bc it makes him look so young and sweet and delicious and he loves to plant kisses on every pissed off wrinkle so in a nutshell wylan may not have won the game but his consolation prize is considerable and paid in full
- wylan used to be shy but now he struts in nothing but jesper’s baggy tshirts and smirks when he sees that flush creep up his gorgeous bf’s neck
- sometimes, when jesper’s gambling addiction gets really bad, wylan takes out a deck of cards his mother painted for him a few years ago - a different crow on the back of each card - and they play until sunrise while jesper’s playlists blast on volume in the background
- jesper orders a dozen of those corny couple tshirts and it starts off as an inside joke between them but people at wylan’s company swear they’ve seen him come to work in a tshirt that says JESPER FAHEY IS MY BOYFRIEND at least twice
- wylan may not be able to read but he LOVES to learn and explore new worlds so audible is the #1 app on his phone
- he listens to books EVERYWHERE  - on the train, in his car, while he makes his coffee in the morning
- sometimes, if the book is really really good and catches jesper’s fancy, he would either record himself reading it and upload the mp3 to wylan’s phone or just read it to him live which is even more fun bc he gets to hear wylan gasp and laugh at certain scenes
- and it makes his heart melt and wylan reddens again when he sees how jesper’s eyes shine for him but it’s okay bc they’re both secretly mushy and /not secretly/ super mega hella in love with each other
- wylan sings to jesper when he’s sick (or loads his favourite movies into one massive netflix playlist so he can entertain himself while he’s at work)
- they probably (definitely) get a dog. or two. or a dozen. wylan’s wary of cats bc some of them are a bit too independent and distant but then he finds a stray cat and immediately takes it in
- like he doesn’t even think about it, he just scoops up the poor rascal and takes it home for a bath and a nice meal… and next thing you know, wylan’s filling out pet passports and health cards
- jesper sends flowers to wylan’s mother every week in case her son is too busy and pays her visits (even on his own) every friday
- he reads her the same stories he reads to wylan at home so sometimes he comes back smiling and says to wylan “your mom recommends it too”
- for all of jesper’s endless, tireless flirting, they really like to just cuddle and lie pressed against each other for HOURS
- every once in a while wylan would unbutton his business shirtTM if it gets too hot in the office and there’d be a constellation of hickeys

Sugar bowl highlights

-dear ladies, this is not a hobby. It is a 24/7 job, worse than one one Wall Street.

-sugar bowl can’t be just your hobby if you are interested in finding a legit SD

-your poker face should be always on, meaning n you need to be polite, kind and respectful no matter how much you don’t like that man, he is paying so show at least respect to that money.

In the end, it was your choice spending time with that particular man.

-if you are traveling to meet him, always have a back up plan(guy, acquaintances, friends) in that city, to whom you can reach out easily and have your exit clear of things go south

-preform a background check! VITAL. Ideally you will have a police guy do it for you 🤗😈
If not, then Google is your best friend.

-practice your INTUITION! It must be level 900 in this line of work. If your gut is telling you something is off, TRUST that feeling

-don’t let a bad experience set you back, look at it as a valuable lesson for future, but don’t make the same mistake twice, then it doesn’t count.

-CASH is king my ladies. Of course if you are seeing the person too long and you have something stable then a bank transfer is ok. However this doesn’t apply to newbies.

-never accept anything before money is in your hands, or gifts (if so agreed), BEFORE this it’s just words in the air! Respect yourself. No desperation- they can sense it.

-again Repeating: always use protection, there are no exceptions. Why do you think he insisting to go BB for a good reason? NO. So avoid doctors and pussy checks (unnecessary ones) and use a CONDOM

-pay attention to DETAILS. Real, rich, successful man have certain behaviors: hands properly manicured, ironed clothes all the times, subtly expensive watch, manner at the table (knows how to use more than one set of fork/knife), understands the meaning of 7 course dinner… etc

-have a hoe friend you can check in with, anyone to know where you actually are is a big bonus.

-pay attention to details while with him: does he tip the staff? Yes? Then its a big plus. No? He is probably stingy in the best case.

-once a wise man told me: “If you want successful business, be close to the source of the money ”
Meaning, target rich cities, countries, base your primary search on those areas. Sure, keep your attention to your locals ones or nearby ones, but with a limit.

-may your psychology matter be your best friend when evaluating men. Take some courses, read some books on that topic, especially behavioral part.

_change your location on SA and other profiles as soon as you land there. You will get bonus offers and boost views. :)

Happy sugaring!

Studying is hard.

My mom was very involved in my studies. She was a highschool drop out due to her family financial issues but she made the best of it. She did have a lot of dreams to do something and be rich.
She always wanted me to be the best at studies.I was a bright student. Definitely above average. I wasn’t allowed to go out to play or waste time on any extra curricular activities. Studies was everything.
As I got older, my mother couldn’t keep up with my studies and hence, couldn’t monitor me. So, she resorted to nagging. I was a teenager and studies bored me beyond a limit. Which is normal as I had to study all the time. When her nagging didn’t help, she started with the emotional blackmail. You see my dad had left my mom when I was a year old. So, she, kinda, blamed me for it.
And she never let me forget. She used to say, “If you weren’t in my life, I would go to work and make lots of money and live a lavish life. So I want you to study and do something great and be rich so we can enjoy later.”
It did hurt. I was only 13 or 14 when I real used the true meaning of her words. But I had been hearing this all my life. It didn’t really affect me the begining. Or so I thought.
But I loved my mother. A lot. She was the only person I had after all. I used to tell her I loved her. Hugged her. But I never got that love back. She never said it back. As i grew older I started understanding it. She didn’t love me at all. I was a project. I was a chance for her to do something in her life. I was to be her achievement. It wasn’t my success but, hers.
My mother discouraged me from any sort of social life. “Friends are only for a few days but studies will give you a successful career forever. Also, none of them want to be your friends they are here to only create obstacles in your life. Then they will climb over you and you will be here only. A failure.”
I had only friends who were in my class and the only time i interacted with them was at school. Till today i haven’t invited a single friend home nor have i gone for a sleepover or party or picnic in my life with them. I grew to distrust people. And be suspicious of those who were nice to me for no reason. I still am.
I took up Chartered Accountancy as I was good with numbers and money.
Chartered Accountancy was fun. It let me work as an intern for 3 years. And its still going on. It has 3 exams. One entrance exam. Then a year later a main exam. And then 3 years later the final exam.
My mother got cancer.
And she passed away in 2013.
I didn’t care.
I was so numb and without feeling. She didn’t love me. I knew that. She knew that. She just wanted me to succeed so that she could prove to herself that she at least got something right. And now she was dead before anything was achieved.
And, I was left. Alone.
No friends. No feelings. Who do I talk to?
All my life I was taught not to trust anyone. All my life I was taught not to make friends. And now I don’t know how.
As my mother was gone, I had no motivation to study. I was living her dream so long that I had no dreams of my own. So I continued… I still had my final exam to go. Chartered Accountancy final exams are held twice a year.
That’s when the procrastination set in.
You see its difficult to study when there is no one to nag me or emotionally blackmail me or manipulate me to study.
My mind and soul is willing but I cannot bring myself to study. This went on for 3 years. Almost 6 failures.
It’s now 2017.
I have finally decided to make it my dream and bring it to reality.
I will do it.
I will study and make it happen.
One exam.
8 subjects.
Why not?
I just don’t want to end up like my mother.

I'm a fan of biggerpockets too but i don't understand why an investor would give out so much free information? I wonder what the catch is

This question made me laugh, because I have a lady friend who works in finance & she has a book on investing & it only contains like five sentences lol. It’s true, many successful people love to hoard information or simply cannot explain it simply enough.

Biggerpockets is not entirely free? TBH most people probably don’t read it anyway.  I believe he uses the site to finance his real estate deals, so the site is his primary business whilst he reinvests his money in his complexes. He also focuses on the residential passive income investment side of things rather than becoming a billionaire. You will be amazed at how many people get stuck on the basics.

Many rich people give free advice but I see what you mean. It’s hard to “teach” someone how to build and develop whole buildings like Gill Dezer or mansions like a developer

God how the actual fuck did I get into THE nicest dorm on campus?

Like I had a *p good* priority number, and my friend was like “maybe if we’re super lucky, we’re on the borderline of getting into oakland (the second nicest dorm on campus) 

I had friends with better numbers get worse dorms so I was like I don’t even wanna look at my assignment

but my friend texted me like HOW THE FUCK DID WE GET PRICE FREDRICK

I mean they downplay the fuck out of it too 

I watched a video tour and I feel like my name should be chad and my rich dad’s money is the only reason I got in 

it’s like living in a real nice hotel. Like srsly the lobby looks like a hotel lobby, the everything looks like a hotel everything, except the rooms, which just look like real nice dorm rooms

carpeted halls, tile room floors, FANCY bathrooms, Gender Neutral bathrooms on every floor, laundry rooms on every floor (as opposed to walking to a whole other god damn building like the plebs) 2 lounges on every floor, separate study and social (for reference, my dorm has 1 lounge for the whole building and it’s smaller than a single prince fredrick lounge), they look like god damn cafés w their armchairs and barstools and walls of full windows like there’s so much natural light you can’t possibly not be sad in a room like that. Not to mention the fuckin view 

anyway ima go take my meds now sorry for the rant

Gone characters sad futures if the Fayz had never happened
  • Sam: Gone on surfing, but never pursued it as a career. Never plucked up the courage to speak to Astrid and he didn't really date much in high school. He stayed in Perdido Beach just to stick with his mom but he didn't really like it, and she grew to annoy him. He was lonely, especially since Quinn moved away. People kind of forgot about the whole 'school bus' thing and he was just another nobody, but he lacked desire to leave his mom and he could never really afford to venture out.
  • Astrid: Aced school without giving a second glance to Sam. She got into Harvard and moved away. She felt bad for leaving Little Pete, and often went back to visit Perdido Beach. She decided to go into science and focused entirely on her career plans, never really stopping to find love. She became rich from all her work and research, she even wrote a book, but she never managed to find someone to share all of that with and felt very lonely. Although she loved her job, she lacked social life and fun. Her life didn't seem it, but it was very boring.
  • Caine: He dragged through school pining after Diana, who never did give him a second look unless it was to tease him or lead him on. After being rejected by his adoptive family, he set out to find his real mom, who slammed the door in his face when he showed up. He moved away from Perdido Beach and moved away, where he met a girl and settled for her, she reminded him of Diana, but she could never be the same.
  • Diana: Worked hard at school, but kept up the bitch facade. She lead Caine on until it became boring, then once she left school she couldn't go back to her family. She went to college, but couldn't afford it and turned to other means of getting money (escorting etc). She flunked and moved to a big city where she settled for the first rich boy that gave her attention. She began to model, but her life wasn't all that glamorous and she became even more bitter and unhappy until eventually she just took some money and ran away, lusting for some real adventure.

The Most Intoxicating Thing Here

An AU where Rapunzel was never kidnapped and Flynn crashed a masquerade ball at the palace to get his fill of the riches that nobility wear to these things.

     “Who are you?” he asked as he spun her around on the dance floor. Flynn had never known nobility to be so… real. Especially not the young ladies, who, in his experience resembled ducks. One thing the average person didn’t know about ducks was that they mated with a male who built their nest on the best real estate, but then couple with males with better genes: marry for money, but find a handsome fellow to father her children. Noble girls kept their eye on the money but their lust on whatever roguish fellow crept into their room at night to steal their valuables.

     Rapunzel laughed brightly, enjoying the dance immensely. “You’ve already made it quite clear that you know who I am. And I’m pretty sure the hair gives it away, anyway.”

     “No, I mean, who are you, Princess Rapunzel? What makes you so… warm and real and bright?” Because she shone. It wasn’t the lighting or the rich fabrics that hugged her torso and flared around her legs at every spin, or the pearls that adorned her mask and hair and clothes. It was her. She was intoxicating.

     “The real question, sir, is who are you?” she pressed. “I don’t even have a name to remember you by.”

     “Eugene Fitzherbert,” he said at once. “Earl of Erroia.” Well, it was half true. A quarter true. Perhaps if the Duchess of Errioa had been his mother, instead of a hapless servant maid who was promptly let go upon discovery of her pregnancy, he would be Earl right about now.

     “Eugene,” she repeated. “Well, Eugene, it’s been a pleasure.”

Vermouth and Jodie, my theory

I’m going to write here all my headcanon/theory of the reasons why I think Vermouth is Jodie Starling’s real mother. This is just my theory, no confirmation or spoilers from the latest chapters. I’m sorry because I think this is going to be a really really long post.

My Start to Sugaring

Before I start, I wanted to throw out a gentle reminder that what has worked for me, may not work for EVERYONE. We are all different, with different personalities, and live in different areas. Somethings that work for me may not work for NYC Babies or small town babies. I’m just going with what feels right to me :)

I’m not going to write out why I began sugaring but it’s not for Louboutins, unfortunately. I’m in my twenties, in a little debt and need to pay it off so I can stop stretching every dollar I have until the next paycheck. My starting budget was pretty much $0. I know I have a lot of personality to charm but is charm enough when dealing with wealthy men? To me, it felt like a no. So here’s how I started sugaring without breaking my bank (and setting off signals to my significant other that I was up to no good)….

Go Casual-

I live in an affluent area. Sixteen year olds get Mercedes for their birthdays and professional athletes are in front of you in line at Costco, buying Oreos. However, when arranging my first meet with a POT, I go casual and play the casual card. Partially because I don’t have super nice clothes nor have the money to invest in any yet, and partially because my personality allows me to be casual without being a slob. I suggested we meet at a Starbucks and he was happy to oblige. He showed up in a button down shirt, jeans and Cole Haan driving shoes. I wore ballet flats, tight skinny jeans, a tank, and a cardigan. He immediately complimented me on my cute outfit and how relaxed I was. Little did he know I was a WRECK. I didn’t have to buy anything fancy to fake it for a super fancy first meet, I was just myself but made sure to be polished and not sloppy. No flip flops, no messy hair, no sweats, no big ass name brands or words on my butt or shirt. Cute casual worked for me and I didn’t spend a dime.

Fake Things-

Just because I live in a rich area doesn’t mean I have a ton of money to burn. Debt. So much debt. Regardless, after a successful first meet, he gave me a small cash gift of $100. Know what I did with it? I bought a pair of CZ studs in a tasteful size. Not too small to look like I bought diamonds that were practically specs of dust, but not so big they looked fake. I had a pair of real ones that one recently went missing. I also nabbed a new basic black purse with no print, no big emblem, nothing that screams “CHEAP TARGET PURSE”, and a pair of basic, black, leather flats with a pointed toe. No, these three items won’t make you look like a beauty queen, but they definitely polished up my ‘everyday’ look for the next time we met. Again, I didn’t have the funds to invest in fancy new clothes, so I pulled another pretty casual outfit out of my closet, threw on my new shoes and earrings and purse and met him at his house to hang out. I intentionally text him to say I’d be 5 minutes late because of traffic (lie) and when I got there exactly 5 minutes late, I explained I was out running errands that day and came straight from XYZ. This excused the casual appearance again, without looking sloppy. He complimented my shoes and said I always look so cute. Thanks babe, Target. He gave me a few hundred dollars that day for drinking a glass of wine in his amazing house and watching Dr. Phil. We agreed to see each other regularly. I used $100 of that gift to buy a nice pair of pants, two nice blouses, and something sexy in case we progress to that point sooner rather than later.

Pay Attention-

Want to know what’s more valuable than looking the part? ACTING the part. If you don’t feel comfortable with someone in a higher tax bracket, there are so many links for help here on Tumblr. I spent our time together listening to him, seeing what topics made his eyes light up, what made him smile, and what subjects he ended quickly. A lot of blogs will TELL you how to act but I disagree completely. Feel him out. I read on one post to be appreciative, not AMAZED. Guess what, my SD loves to see me amazed. We were in his guest house and I complimented how beautiful the backyard and view were. He came and stood next to me and as he looked out over his estate, he had the proudest look on his face. BINGO. SD worked hard for his shit and is damn proud of it. When I show my amazement at his wealth, hobbies, and lifestyle, I see that same proud face. 

Show Your Appreciation- 

Do not get so flustered that you forget to thank him for the coffee, the meal, the drive to your car, the allowance, the gift…I repeat, DO. NOT. FORGET. TO. THANK. HIM. I was so flustered when I was leaving SD’s house and he slipped the 100’s in my purse, that when I left and was reflecting, I could not say with confidence that I thanked him. UGH. Thankfully, he text me immediately and said he had a great time with me, giving me the chance to thank him in case I didn’t before. In person is far better, but I took what I could. Two days later, I showed my appreciation again. I wrote, “Thank you again! You are so sweet! I went and got my nails done yesterday for the first time in forever and I feel like a new girl ;)” He was so happy to be thanked again and asked to see them, then said how cute they were. Again, maybe not every SD likes this, but to know his money is being spent on things that make me smile and feel good, makes him feel good.

NO Shortcuts-

You are a beautiful, intelligent, young, prize of a woman. He’s lucky to have you in his life. So please don’t act like you’re not worthy of him and his time. Are you 18? Who cares, act like you’re 28. From what POTs and SD have told me, flaunting your youth is a NO NO. Don’t use shortcut text. Type out 'you’, not 'u’. Ask what he’s doing today, not 'wyd’. Guess what, my SD is worth millions of dollars, owns a private plane, knows more celebrities than I care to think about, and is an authority figure in our town. He uses shorthand text like 'u’ and 'k’ and as much as it makes me cringe, I will never bend. I will always type full words out. I’m not the millionaire here, he is. If he wants to type like a 13 year old, fine. But I’m not going to and risk the possibility of him feeling like I’m a child, not the rocking awesome woman that I am. I’m young, I know it. I’m less experienced and I don’t run with his crowd quite yet, there’s no need to reinforce that fact so blatantly in his face. Also, break the habit of saying “Um” in between words. A thoughtful pause is great, 'um’ is not.

I know I hate super long Tumblr posts so I’m sorry you either had to read this whole thing or scroll past it. If you read it, thanks for giving it a chance. I’m horrible at blogging and writing but this has been on my mind and finally someone asked me, so I thought I’d share with all.

Best of luck to you awesome babies!

you know what's always frustrated me about the whole concept of Mr Freeze? It'd be so easy to rehabilitate him. Literally all he cares about is curing his wife. Just set him up developing tech for the government as "community service" or something. As long as he has the funds and time to research a cure for Nora he'll be happy as a clam, and all the incidental super-science he produces along the way can be patented by the government or whatever. There's no reason for his continued villain status

MAN i could and probably have written the equivalent of an essay on the problem with sympathetic villains and what happens when EVERY villain has to be SUPER SAD and what that does to a narrative that depends on someone making repeated appearances as an antagonist.

uh but to summarize while i FUCKING LOVE the unbelievable tragedy of Mr. Freeze there are a lot of narrative problems with the way it gets done, because, yeah, just give the guy some fucking money to save his fucking wife, jesus

so here are some things

  • Mr Freeze falls into this weird Doctor Science category in comics where everyone is every kind of scientist and that’s a problem. Like, he’s trying to find a cure for his wife’s Mysterious Illness, but also he was able to build and maintain a cryonic freezing chamber in order to later resurrect her? is he a cryonics guy or is he a disease guy or is he an engineer, what’s going on here, c’mon.
  • SOLUTION: he is a cryonics guy. cryonics is his whole fucking deal. his whole job is figuring out how to freeze people so they can be brought back. BUT HERE’S THE THING: CRYONICS IS SHADY AS FUCK. almost every reputable scientist agrees that the people who have been cryonically frozen are just dead. they’re straight up dead. even cryonics people admit that there’s no known way of thawing them that wouldn’t kill them even if they WERE alive.
  • when you hear about cryonics just imagine Miracle Max saying MOSTLY DEAD, MOSTLY
  • maybe before Shit Gets Real victor works for a shady cryonics company that takes money from the rich while knowing that they will probably never be able to thaw these people
  • WHICH IS NOT TO SAY THAT FREEZE DOESN’T BELIEVE IN HIS WORK he probably does, he probably considers this a means to an end, a way of getting funding for The Real Shit. because in his mind these rich death-fearing assholes don’t deserve to be brought back anyway. whatever. he wants preserve bodies until humanity has conquered death, it’s his mission, it’s his really questionable life’s work.
  • THEN NORA GETS SICK but his process isn’t perfect yet, holy shit, he’s gotta hustle so he can freeze his wife in order to be future saved
  • Plot Twist: nora would kind of rather just die with dignity? being frozen and then brought back in the future sounds horrifying to her. she is a lovely and loving woman with a lot of family and friends and she loves them all and while she’s not happy about dying she’s not any happier about waking up in the year 3000 and everyone has robot bodies. she does not get what the best-case-scenario is supposed to be here.
  • victor continues to hustle and does not respect his wife’s wishes and when she dies - because she dies, because she is fucking dead - he can’t handle it and he freezes her even though he knows the technology is imperfect. he will do anything to get her back and he will never accept that she is gone.
  • people who work in cryonics are also pretty obsessed with the idea of conquering death, generally, so let’s assume the research lab he’s with does All Of That Weird Shit. you know what canonically has the ability to conquer death in the DCU? the lazarus pit! you know who would totally give power beyond their ken to a research lab just to see if they could make something useful out of it, without caring about the other consequences? r’as al ghul! HOW CONVENIENT.
  • anyway with that in mind let’s assume the r&d department of this company dedicated to disrupting the death industry or whatever the fuck does a lot of freezing people, and also a lot of selling people weird vitamin injections, and also a lot of behind-the-scenes experimentation with stanky pit water
  • the origins of Chemical X (or whatever they call it) are murky and shrouded in mystery and so most people in the lab are probably totally unaware of all the things it is capable of doing. they think it is some kind of fountain of youth thing, none of these people are scientists in fields that would make the greater ramifications more obvious to them, they signed a million NDAs and barely anyone from different departments talks to each other, the left hand has no idea what the right hand is doing
  • when he found out about it this would probably look a lot like the weird solution to victor’s weirder thawing-people-out problem, and so he would probably try to create some kind of chemical serum based on the waters of the lazarus pit in order to test the efficacy
  • since he ends up a supervillain he probably experiments first on frozen old rich people because he wants to be absolutely sure that it will work by the time nora needs it
  • he is SO FIRED holy shit
  • as an act of desperation he experiments on himself
  • he weaponizes some stolen cryonics, BOOM, it’s mr freeze.

now you have an origin story for mr freeze that is still REALLY FUCKING SAD but his rehabilitation depends on batman convincing him that he needs to learn how to deal with death in a healthy way so MR FREEZE IS FUCKED

Do you think you could do some prompts about kids with money quickly realizing that they have nothing? That they feel nothing? I've been meaning to write a short story and I feel like all the pieces are there but there's still one missing and it's easiest to write to your prompts.

first: “super rich kids” by frank ocean. fast cars flecked with blood. girls who know you won’t be prosecuted if you’re young and rich and pretty enough. snapchat of a boy with red eyes and a glass of dom perignon with the text IS MY LIFE FUCKING REAL. snapchat of a girl’s dad’s black amex with the words MONEY CAN’T BUY HAPPINESS BUT IT GETS CLOSE. taking your middle-class friends out to nice restaurants but knowing they’re with you mainly for the money. “dude i know you’re only a year older than me but sometimes i think of you as my sugar daddy.” traveling to punta del este to find yourself but losing yourself instead. identifying heavily with the versace logo. an imperial bedroom and all one feels is the weight of all that empty space. “even my funeral has to be luxurious.”

Gradence AU

🔝Credence is a rich boy, who doesn’t give а shit about anything. He’s a talented person, but he’s burying his talents under money and sins. It may seem, that Credence is selfish and rude, but it’s not really him.🔝

💰Percival Graves is a successful businessman who noticed that rebellious boy while giving a lecture in MSU. He’s interested in Credence and he wants to see his real face under these masks. 💰

Meaning of the words is “I’m golden”

If heronstairs shared a house/apartment, what do you think it would be like?

I’ll reblog my “super domestic headcanons” in a minute brcause it kind of goes with this but I’m going to take this question to mean the actual space:

It’s the wrong size. Either far too large or far too small for two people. That’s the kind of detail they’d mess up when they were choosing a place. Probably too big, especially if they had a generous budget.

They’re probably bad with money. They’re rich young men with expensive hobbies. They’d learn but there would be a few months where grocery money would go to a new set of throwing knives or a box set of some series of books or a new bow for Jem’s violin.

The apartment is eclectic with no real decorating scheme but not undecorated. They have art on the walls and curtains and cushions and things like that but there’s no decorating scheme.

Jem picked the curtains on a whim because he liked the pattern. Will picked up a pair of paintings he saw in a shop. Someone gave them a bright red chair as a gift and it doesn’t suit the space but they keep it. No coordination but the entire thing sort of works anyways.

There are bookshelves on more walls than you’d see outside outside of a library. There is no system to them but Will can find whatever he’s looking for at a moment’s notice.

Jem has either a small room or a corner for his music and it is meticulously organized.

Will leaves laundry and his things around. He’s one of those “But it’s organized chaos! I know where everything is!” people.

Jem prefers order and logic and when he makes a mess, it’s a mess. Some things he prefers neat (clothing, his sheet music) but things like toiletries are always a disaster. He loses his hairbrush 3 times a week. That sort of thing. It’s one extreme or the other.

They are all up in each others business. Someone calls: “Where’s my-” and the answer “Dining room table” comes before they’ve finished the sentence. And they know each other’s schedule.

“Lex Luthor”

While I was eating, someone called Donald Trump “Lex Luthor”. I”m like “his name is Donald Trump, don’t you dare call him Lex!” 

They like “But he’s rich and this is of comical at best!”

I said, “Yeah, but Lex isn’t the type of person who would be changing his mind on public television. Lex is actually a level 12 intellect, which means that he knows what the public would want to hear and reach all possible demographics. He wouldn’t conquer up fears like a weakling. Also, Lex Luthor owns real estate, technology companies, and he actually built a city with his own money in the DC Animated Universe. He is so rich, he can afford to lose money and doesn’t go bankrupt. Donald Trump filed for bankruptcy several times and knows how to manipulate the laws in his favor, but Lex Luthor would never attack an opponent about missing emails. He would have actually found the emails, leaked them, and smash his opponent in the middle of this convention!”

And then I realized how much of a geek I am.

I just turned around, shut up and finished my meal while they looked confused and then said “maybe we should just call him cheeto and be done with it.”

Tips for Baby Pagans: Use your resources!!

Paganism and witchcraft can get expensive.

Like, really expensive.

Which makes learning the craft a bit… . difficult sometimes. Especially to those whom feel you must have certain materials to succeed.

First off, I wanna tell you that mentality is wrong and will drain your wallet of your real-life money! It makes paganism and witchcraft out to be an elitist religion only the rich at play can indulge in. It’s never been about that life, I can assure you.

Secondly, it alienates anyone who doesn’t act a certain way. I’ve talked about incorporating your own style into your path before. Take this into consideration, please!!! Don’t think you suddenly have to give up using your computer, or walk everywhere, or learn how to tell leaves apart from one another if you’re a true-blue-city-slicker.

I mean, if you do these things and it works for you, that’s AWESOME!! :DD

But nobody deserves to feel like crap for not doing this stuff.

Which is why I’d like to offer alternatives to people in financial or living situations where traditional tools aren’t available to you.

I have this theory that Maya gets so starstruck by the Minkus’ fancy and wealthy lifestyle that she starts acting differently (another version of the Cheese Soufflé accent, maybe?), and farkle has to remind her that just bc his family is rich doesn’t mean they don’t have problems.

Maybe his parents have trouble being REAL and genuine with people bc of their lifestyle. Maya and her mom don’t have that problem bc every single penny her mom makes she has to WORK really really hard for. Farkle’s dad is a hard worker, yes, but in a different way. He already has money and now he’s just working for more – more helicopters, more clothes, more fancy gadgets.

Hopefully Farkle is starting to understand that fancy/wealthy doesn’t necessarily mean happiness, and I hope he can help Maya realize that.

And more about Maya’s broken home: families that struggle immensely, and prevail through together, are sometimes the strongest. They learn the value of supporting each other through thick and thin, and they learn the true meaning of “unconditional love”
