I feel like talking about why I, an ace, have sex.
I’m hypersexual. This is a description of my sex drive, not my attraction. Hence why I’m still ace. I legitimately need sex to maintain my mental health. I have sex because it’s important for my mental health.
I also form intense emotional bonds and sex is an amazing way to strengthen them and express my love. I have sex because it strengthens my emotional bonds with my partners.
I want my partners to be happy. I love seeing them happy and satisfied and sex is something I can give to help them feel good. I have sex because my partners enjoy it.
I am autistic. I stim. I love the sensations of sex, of touching. It’s a stim. I have sex because it is a stim that helps me regulate.
Here’s to all the aces who have sex for reasons other than attraction. Here’s to all the hypersexual aces, the aces who have sex to satisfy their partners’ desires, who have sex because it’s a stim, who have sex for the emotional connection.
You’re real, you’re valid, and you’re not the only one.
I can’t wait to travel again. Travel with friends. Travel with my mother. Travel with my love. I can’t wait to experience the world with my favourite people, whilst gathering as many memories as possible and embracing the wonders that this world has to offer.
Something changes you when you return from traveling. Your perspective.. it’s positively tampered with …and now it’ll will never restore.
You start allowing more space in your mind to explore and embrace the things that you never bothered to acknowledge beforehand. You start to compare the normalities of your traditional living standards and overall culture to the lifestyle and environment you just left behind. The people that you never thought of interacting with are now potential friends that you can exchange stories with. That short amount of time you spent in their country allows you to become slightly more knowledgeable of their culture and it also allows you to be more understanding to our differences and how we as people carry out our days.
Travelling encourages growth and growth strengthens love.

There’s this quote from an unknown author which really hit me, it said “I gave you all the love I could have used to love myself.” It strengthened my feelings as regards loving one’s self first before really loving anyone else. To understand love, one should know what it is and what it isn’t. To understand love is to know how it should make you feel: secure, content and happy – and what you shouldn’t feel: jealous, paranoid and scared. To love another is to know that to love another is to love yourself because you’d want to be able to love him the way you love yourself; captivating and liberating.
It’s been almost 3 weeks since I officially became a fan of Tom. Throughout that time, I’ve tried to figure out what he’s like. Just today I took a few minutes to think about why I love him so much. Here are my reasons:
What I love about Tom is how down to earth and grounded he is. He hasn’t changed even with the fame, he still is himself. He’s very kind, polite and respectful to everyone he meets. He cares and loves his fans so much. He tries his best to meet them but when he’s unable to, he gets bummed out. The connection he has with them is very different, light hearted and fun (the roasts and the quackson joke). He has made children’s days by visiting them in hospitals. He brought smiles and joy to them and he loved being able to do that which shows how big his heart is and how sweet he is. He loves and cares about his family, friends and dog a lot and brings them along with him when he can. He’s very talented and works hard at what he does. The fact that he can do more than just act is impressive. He has accomplished quite a lot at the age of 21. He’s so energetic, lively and funny. He can light up a room with his presence, smile or laugh. He’s truly captivating. He’s definitely not afraid to be himself which shows just how comfortable and confident he is in his own skin. He takes absolutely nothing for granted & appreciates and is grateful for everything. He has acknowledged and shown appreciation for the people and experiences that have helped him thrive in his career. I love how he lives life by not taking everything too seriously and by living life to the fullest. He’s very admirable and inspiring. He has shown that if you work hard, stay focused and determined, you can do anything and even live out your dream.
@bellarketm: Babes can you believe that we’ve officially been friends for more than 2 years already? It’s weird to think that it’s only been that short of a time. It literately feels like I’ve known you my entire life. You’re in high school now so you aren’t on here as much but you’re still my little sister and I love you dearly
@blyedeeks sometimes you meet someone and they fill a missing piece in your life, Cams, for me that is you! You are by far the most positive kindest person on here and I can’t believe that I only met you almost exactly a year ago.

I literally feel like something is wrong if I don’t talk to you once a day.

@rosymamacita you’re kinda like my tumblr mom Rosy. I feel like I can go to you for anything and you’d be there to help me and calm me down. I love how smart you are how you don’t take anyone’s bullshit and most of all you have such a giant heart.
@everybodyknows-everybodydies my soulmate, god I’m so jealous you get to go back to the place where we began but I’m so utterly proud of the person I’ve seen you becoming over the past year. You are so talented, so talented and you are so tiny and cute that sometimes I can’t believe how much passion you have in your body. I love you so so much

Honestly, as a HideKane supporter, chapter 124 & 125 only strengthened my love for the ship. 124 because Hide was actually brought up and just the way Kaneki talked about him briefly was beautiful. 125 because despite what’s going on, you can’t deny that Hide and Kaneki will always have the best companionship throughout the whole series and an entire chapter dedicated to sexual intercourse isn’t gonna obscure this view. Don’t let this bring you down HideKane supporters. In the end, ship whoever you want but be mindful and don’t attack anyone.

I love you all so so much
With fans still recovering from “Part One”, Chase Atlantic fueled their ongoing fire with the release of “Part Two”, the second EP of what I’m assuming to be their take on anelectrifying musical saga.
The EP was released on March 31st, 2017, and I was very eager to hear it. Although I myself am a relatively new fan of Chase Atlantic’s music, “Part One” completely blew me out of the water: compared to their older stuff, it was a major step forward in terms of their lyrics, musical production, and style. My only hope for “Part Two” was that it would be similar to its counterpart, if not better.
After finally sitting down and listening to the new EP, I had some mixed feelings about it. Although I was pleased regardless, because I like this band a lot, I’m not quite certain whether this one shook me as hard as “Part One” did.
My very first impression of this song was a quick snort through the nose. Not going to lie, the title made me chuckle. I wasn’t sure if the band was genuinely pissed off about something, or they were just making fun of Twitter users’ lingo. Either way, I was interested to see where this opening track would lead to.
Personally, I’m a sucker for dramatic album introductions. And this song had just the right amount of mystery, lust, and grunge to immediately draw me in.
The song started out with a relatively chill introduction, but the first 10 seconds definitely built up. It was quiet at first, but as soon as I heard the car revving its engine in the background, I knew I was in for a bumpy ride.
Immediately after the car sounds, I was hit with lead singer Mitchel Cave’sdistinctive voice and a brand new beat.
If I was to describe this song in one word, I would use the term badass (or is that two words?). There was something about the heavy bass, deep rhythm, and the slickness in Cave’s voice that immediately painted a dauntless picture in my mind. I imagined myself thrown into the middle of a high-speed police chase after my hot boyfriend and I just robbed a convenience store. He would be driving a black SUV with tinted windows, I would be perched up in the passenger seat, and Triggered would be our get away song.
Although the chorus could’ve been fuller in my opinion, the verses and the bridge of this song were what really brought it to life for me. Lyrics like “driving ‘till we killing love” and the repetitive use of the phrase “won’t slow down” strengthened my inner feelings of love and rebellion as I bopped my head to this song’s steady beat.
The lyrics and overall theme of the song helped me realize that perhaps the meaning of “triggered” was not a reference to overused internet slang, but maybe it was referring to the shotgun my hot boyfriend was firing as we swerved on the 405, desperately trying to get away from the cops. Once again, the visuals that this song brought to life were killer (haha - see what I did there?).
In conclusion, the more I’ve listened to this song, the more I’ve come to really like it. From the lyrics, to the melodies, and to the delinquent realm it creates, Triggered is definitely my favorite tune on this EP.
This song, unfortunately, did not woo me as much as its preceding track.
First off, what I appreciated about the song was how unique it was. In my opinion, this song was the complete opposite of Triggered, and very different from what I’ve been associating with Chase Atlantic’s more recent music. Coming right out of the sinister world of Triggered, Cassie was like a breath of fresh air and a field of blooming sunflowers right in front of me.
The general vibe of this song was very easy to pick up on within the first lines of the first verse. The light and airy beat that continued throughout the entire song reminded me of a symphony imitating the gentle ticks of a clocktower. It made my heart, still calming down from Triggered, feel all warm and fuzzy again.
Another thing I appreciated about this song was how the lyrics and the music contradicted one another. A bubbly melody is a rarity among Chase Atlantic’s newer releases, but somehow they managed to pair the uplifting beat with lyrics about drugged up veins and an impatient girl named Cassie in a way that actually worked quite well.
However, the unique airiness of this song just didn’t seem to completely win me over, though I did appreciate it. The main reason why this song did not particularly knock my socks off is because throughout the whole first listen, I kept feeling as if something was missing. Especially in the chorus, I felt like there could’ve been something else - a tempo change, another instrumental element, faster lyrics - to make it more exciting. Although the song was cute and a little brighter than the other two tracks, it was kind of forgettable.
This track has become known to me as the cool-down song, because I found it to be very chill and relaxed, but nonetheless a very interesting listen.
The introduction features a few intriguing elements that quickly brought me to the edge of my seat: more undistinguishable sound effects (were they popping pills?), the lazy strum of an electric guitar, and Cave’s muffled voice singing a few catchy lines, as if he was teasing me of what’s to come later on in this song.
The introduction slowly built up, but then quickly flushed me into the first verse. The band was back at it again with the alternative hip-hop beats, this time singing (rapping?) about self-hatred and a desperate search for Mitchel’s cell phone.
The transition into the chorus was rather quick, but nonetheless it still worked pretty well. By now I was able to conclude that this song would be slower than the other two, but I wasn’t complaining about it.
The lyrics of this song once again displayed a level of contradiction to the other elements of the tune. Lines like “Life in the fast lane. You live then you die, babe … so why stop now?” were somewhat depressing lyrics, yes, but the way Cave’s gentle and soothing tone of voice meshed together with them was quite menacing, sending shivers up my spine. If I’m thinking out loud here, he has a very sexy singing voice. Don’t @ me.
In some ways this song almost felt half-assed, but thats what I kind of like about it. Although it is slower than the other 2 tracks, Why Stop Now has this kind of vibe to it that fuels my inner desires to just “not care”, which I assume is a common mood fellow Chase Atlantic fans feel while listening to their music. And that’s not a bad thing. Being a moody 18-year-old whose just trying to figure her shit out, I need music like this to listen to from time to time. Sometimes we all just need to “not care” and chill TF out.
The reason why I still wasn’t completely blown away by this song either was the same reason as Cassie. I felt like there was something missing from this track as well, though I still can’t put my finger on it. Either way, it’s still a good jam, and I can see this one becoming a lot of fans’ favorite.
Overall rating: 7/10
Overall, the “Part Two” EP did not meet the high expectations “Part One” set for me, but that is quite all right. Triggered is a major gem of a song and I’m still going to be blasting this EP in my car for the next few weeks. Perhaps there will be a “Part Three” and maybe even a “Part Four” to help us further envision where Chase Atlantic are headed next. These EPs are obviously just a mere taste of what they’ve got in store; I feel a debut album coming soon, and I cannot wait to devour it.
AN: This is the first music review I’ve literally ever done, so please go easy on me! Hopefully you enjoyed it - I tried to keep it as honest as possible, so I apologize if any of my opinions offend/upset you, but they are just my opinions. If you liked this, let me know! I’d love to do more reviews in the future.
So, as a BTVS fan who has watched the show and read the comics, it always bums me out that a lot of others haven’t. Don’t get me wrong, some people just can’t get into comics. Some people don’t even know they exist. And then there are those who just can’t get into the Buffy comics at all, it just isn’t their cup of tea. That’s totally cool and there is no judgement.
But, as a BTVS fan who has watched the show and read the comics, I feel like I got to see so much more character development with EVERY character and it’s just beautiful. The Scoobies have grown so much since we left them in Season 7. They have learned so much more since fans who have seen the show left them, and it honestly makes me so sad that not all of us know that they get better, that things get better. You get so much closure and at the same time see these amazing new beginnings.
The comics have changed my opinion of so many characters. Giles,dealing with the years he spent watching over not only Buffy, but everyone. Dawn, growing up and getting more and more mature, dealing with her problems and really opening up to everyone. XANDER. I HATED him so much, and now after reading the comics he’s one of my favorite characters. He’s not so scared all the time, he’s so much more confident.
I just really encourage you to check out the comics if you haven’t. They strengthened my love for Buffy and the Scoobies a thousand times over, and helped me get over so much that happened in the show. They are worth it!!
<b></b> I think that people should seriously chill, they are acting as if he murdered someone, going into his feeds, harassing him, insulting him and threatening him...
