or wordy

Someone else on tumblr pointed out that PASSENGERS might have been a more meaningful movie if it was about just THE ONE person dealing with being alone on the ship for the rest of their life.  And if, to cope, they go through and make it a point to learn everything they can about all of the other people on the ship.

And I just keep thinking about this idea.

“So when dawn breaks, you’ll know?”

Know that this time, I won’t be coming back

Know that you won’t have to deal with me sleeping in ever again

Know that you don’t have worry about cleaning up after me anymore

Know that you’ll never find the perfect recipe for that Tenebrae dessert

Know that we won’t ever again share the joy of reeling in a big one

Know that you don’t have to find ways to hide veggies in my food anymore

Know that Gladio will need a new sparring partner

Know that Prompto will need a new purpose to live for

Know that you’ll never get to hear my voice again

Know that there will never be another photo with the both of us in it

Know that when dawn breaks, I won’t be coming back


“I should.”

Good God the part of this SU episode that hit me the most was how they used Garnet as a visual aid for the kids’ trauma.

Sapphire and Ruby didn’t get specific fears or thoughts, even if that would’ve been very easy to include. Instead, they got imagery that very clearly focused on their reactions and the consequences of flawed coping mechanisms. Ruby is prone to self-destructive hyperfocus on one thought, completely incapable of moving past it. Sapphire is “calm and collected” because she lets thoughts pile up until she completely overloads and shuts down.

With the mechanics of each coping flaw well-established, Ruby settles next to Connie, passing that imagery on to her. Connie was obsessing over the fact that she went into automatic panic mode and attacked that kid (understandably so). She’s scared of herself, and Ruby was there to show how heavily a single worry can weigh on someone so one-track-minded–to the point of both being blind to their partner’s distress.

Sapphire settles next to Steven. The one who’s always okay and always ready to go until he can’t push it aside any longer and completely shuts down. He didn’t even react to their falling to the presumed death. We saw Sapphire’s breakdown with the visual metaphor of that maelstrom of thoughts spiraling in on her like vultures. Now we have a sense of magnitude for what’s weighing on Steven, and how many things he’s been holding back because he doesn’t want to confront them.

Connie’s ready to tear herself apart over one butterfly. Steven didn’t acknowledge the butterflies as they showed up because if he faced one he’d have to face them all, which is far too much.

Garnet was and always is great every time I see her, but wow what a brilliant and gut-wrenching way to show how much these kids need help.

an anon requested a pastel Ross aesthetic, and what better way to represent pastel Ross than to show how soft and sassy he is =D

Candy Hearts || Bucky x Reader

Summary → A year of silently pinning over your best friend and neighbor Bucky Barnes ends happier than expected when you spend Valentine’s Day together.

Word Count → 2.9K (I’m a wordy bitch, okay?)

Warnings → Cursing, oral sex (female receiving), unprotected sex (don’t be silly, wrap your willy!). Fluff? Definitely fluff.

A/N → Happy #FreakyFriday y’all! I apologize for the delay, but I had an unplanned twelve hour work shift today. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought I’d try my hand at fluffy smut (it’s a first for me - so go easy on this fic). Other than that, enjoy!

A nervous giggle flew from your lips as you twirled on your toes to face the full-length mirror hung over the back of your bedroom door. Your usual untamed knot of hair had been brushed and curled into effortless beach waves that cascaded down your shoulders and back. You wore nothing but Bucky’s trademark, burgundy Henley, which you’d confiscated the last time you’d done laundry together. It hung loosely over your frame, hitting mid-thigh and creating an innocently sexy, ‘girl next door’ type of vibe. You undid the first few buttons of the V-neck, to show off just the right amount of cleavage. You opted for some mascara and pink chapstick, making your lips appear fuller. Thoroughly satisfied with your appearance, you exited your room and tiptoed excitedly down the hall.

Over the past eighteen months, as your friendship with Bucky had grown closer, the both of you had developed several traditions. Every Sunday you’d get together for pasta, you’d lift weights with each other three times a week, and Tuesday nights were spent on Bucky’s couch with abundant amounts of junk food while binge watching television shows. Unless there was a particularly lengthy mission for the team or some other out of the ordinary incident, neither of you ever bailed on your plans. And tonight, Valentine’s Day, was not about to be any different. You had been secretly ecstatic when Bucky double-checked you’d still be getting together for takeout and Netflix, despite the holiday.

Sky’s Anti-Negativity Shower Spell

Alright, y’all, I keep seeing all these bath spells floating around, and they’re fabulous- unless you’re in a hurry, or don’t have a full bathtub. So I wanted to share a simple spell I like to use in the shower to shed negativity and draw positivity and good energy. 

What you need:

  • Your favourite scent of Shampoo and/or bodywash, or both
  • Your favourite scent of Lotion

If you don’t have your favourite onhand, a smell you still like or really like will do in a pinch. It doesn’t matter what the smell is as long as you like it! I have found that bar soap doesn’t work quite as well as shower gel, since it’s a little harder to get a good lather with.

Run your water at a comfortable temperature(I like mine quite hot so it’s like burning the bad energy away, but always make sure it is still comfortable for you!) and let yourself take a minute to think about the negative things that are bothering you- process them, and why they’re bothering you. Imagine those negative things as dirt clinging to your skin.

Now grab your washcloth(or loofa or whatever you use) and start lathering it. Think about all the positive things in your life, and all the things that make you happy, and put all that positivity towards your soap(sometimes using a little more than the recommended amount helps, I find.).

Lather up, and imagine you’re scrubbing all your negativity away, picture all the negativity-dirt running off your skin.

(Optional): Sing or think this chant as you rinse off:

Away, away
Slide off my back and down the drain,
Never to be seen again!

Once you’re out, gently dry yourself off, and continue thinking about things you like- focus that good energy into your lotion of choice, and apply it to your skin- picture it sliding on like armour, and fortifying your skin to protect it and prevent the the negativity from sticking as the day goes on.

Try to rip people off with shady flipped houses? Watch me flip your bank account.

So I don’t think this is entirely pro, but this just happened and I’m quite pleased with myself. Sorry for how long it is, I’m a wordy person.

Background: my girlfriend and I have been trying to buy a house for a month or two. Housing market where we live is tough, we don’t have a huge income, most houses sell within 24 hours, etc so it’s been a struggle. About a month and a half ago we found a house that was PERFECT. In the neighborhood we wanted, 2 bed 2 bath, at the very top of our price range but still doable, etc etc. Best part is that it’s beautifully renovated, new roof, everything is new and gorgeous! We put in an offer, but get outbid by someone else (which is crushing, if you have yet to experience that).

We mourn and then continue searching for other houses….until we get a call from our agent saying that the other buyers backed out and the seller is offering it to us first before putting it back on the market.

A quick important note here: the seller is the owner, but is also acting as his own real estate agent, and he runs his own business buying foreclosures and flipping them. This is important later.

I’ve been thinking lately about recovery from my eating disorder. For months on end, I was sure that I would relapse. It wasn’t that I wanted to or even felt that strong of urges, but more that it seemed to be a thing people did, and I was stressed and depressed, and had the opportunity to, so why wouldn’t I?

For whatever reason, though, I didn’t. I kept eating normally and all that jazz. I’m almost two years into recovery. I honestly take my functioning for granted; I’ve been learning math and classical Indian dance and languages. I have showed up on exchange as much as I could, and really implemented healthy coping skills.

I was just musing about the possibility of things going downhill this summer, and then my host mom knocked on my door to give me some ice cream. I was like, oh, ice cream, great! And then I ate it, end of story. Something my old dietitian said to me once was that I was afraid of both being okay and not okay, which is probably really apt. Relapse is always a possibility, and at least for me, right now, it would be a conscious choice. To quote @velvettruce, “I am afraid that I will fail at greater things than this.” The thing is, the stakes of my life are higher now.

The focus is not on my using behaviors, but how I can (potentially) use a postposition in Hindi. Expectations are higher, and I think that’s a good thing. The idea of maintaining recovery indefinitely is overwhelming, and yet, I might as well. Relapse would give me a break; it would be safe and familiar and what-have-you, but I want better for myself. I have proven, time and time again, that I’m willing to do what it takes in order to ensure that I have a future.

anonymous asked:

Do you think Malec's relationship is healthy? Like didn't Alec yell at and blame Magnus for his coming out in 2x01? And make him feel like he owed him? And there is a power imbalance with Magnus having more power and experience and being able to play Alec.

Yes, Anon, I do believe Malec’s relationship is indeed very healthy from the beginning. I mean they aren’t technically “together” yet but they care so much for each other? They have these honest conversations like adults? They actually act like adults? If this is not a huge difference from the stuff you normally watch on tv, I don’t know what is. Besides, we may have all waited for a whole year for this date to happen, but it also shows how much care the writers took of their relationship. They didn’t rush it one bit. Another sign that this relationship is good and healthy and will last.

I think you have to understand that Alec was in a very difficult position when he yelled at Magnus. And threw those accusations (f.e. “After everything I’ve done for you.) at him in 2x01. Jace was missing, his parabatai, his soul. He felt helpless. And Magnus, who only wanted to help, was the one person Alec blamed because he was just there in that moment. But, and here we are back at it again with Malec having such a healthy relationship: Alec understood that he was wrong. That his behavior towards Magnus was unacceptable. Which he actually noticed the moment all these hurtful words left his mouth. His face was full of regret. That’s why he came to apologize to Magnus. Where he also admitted towards Magnus that he was right, that Alec came out for himself at his wedding, and not for Magnus. He did kiss Magnus. It was his decision. Not Magnus’. Which makes the whole balcony scene so so great. A beautiful reconciliation scene. <3

Also, I don’t think there is some kind of “power imbalance”, Anon. I mean, sure, Magnus is this super powerful warlock, true. But the way he sometimes looks at Alec? So soft and gentle and caring. And then there is Alec, a true soldier at heart, a shadowhunter. Who repressed his feelings all his life. But suddenly there is somebody who shows an interest in him? And Alec Lightwood smiles and blushes so hard because of that? Can this be any more adorable? I think that’s why we all love Malec so much. Yes, they are both badass “warriors” but they can also be these soft men who literally melt around each other. And this has nothing to do with one maybe having more “power” or experience than the other might have. At the end of the day they are two people who care for each other and love each other so deeply. One is a warlock. One a shadowhunter. But that’s not important. Their love for each other is. And nothing else. What a power couple!

I am officially 1% fluent in French: time to update my resume 😂
I decided to start w/ duolingo and see how that goes. I think I’ll use a moleskine cahier for this. Hopefully in my upcoming college years I’ll be able to take real classes.
We began Logic in math class and I was so confused at first because there’s no numbers! But my professor is so good and helpful, I feel very confident now. It’s just what it sounds like, logic. I took
in-class notes and have to rewrite them into my notebook w/ examples, which I’ll do tomorrow in my 3 hour break between classes. I’m just finishing up my CRW project because yesterday what I did was open up the word document and go to sleep lol.

let’s ignore my non-existent banner skills ok? anyways, after seeing secret santas floating around and y’all seemed to want one for the harry potter fandom so here i am!! *finger guns*

amorverus  asked:

the imagery from your tags about alec pushing someone down the stairs is amazing and now i need to see their difference in fighting styles immediately (but also all the ways they're similar too). i would kill so many people to have them fight shoulder to shoulder to analyze to pieces.

maia i know i would absolutely kill for that as well

i don’t know that i’ve actually talked about this before but i think watching alec fight physically is really interesting, we haven’t seen it a lot but when we do there definitely is this inelegance about it. don’t get me wrong i don’t think he’s a bad fighter, in fact i think he’s a very physically capable fighter but i think his fighting style when not using a bow is a lot more rough and ready because HE is a lot more rough and ready and i love this concept. he’s all about these pointed rough punches, getting his target on the ground and there’s definitely a skill to it but it’s much different to magnus’s style. he goes for punching people in the face, he grapples them, he overwhelms with force and speed

whereas with magnus there’s this pointed elegance to how he acts in battle, which i think is partly because we’ve mostly seen him fighting with magic but it’s also just part of who he is and i think if we see him fighting physically it’ll be the same. the way he moves in and out of battle has this fluidity and as you know as i’ve said before this composure. he shows people what he wants them to see which is calculated down to the smallest details. of course it comes unhinged in battle i’m sure, but because he’s so calculated (viewing the world as a chess board) and also because he’s so fucking attuned to things, i feel like even with knives or hand to hand combat or anything other than magic, he’s going to have this incredible elegance to his movements that just speak of so much control and preempting other people’s moves. not to mention he’s had so much time to learn and experience so many different kinds of fighting, i think he probably has taken the best parts of all of them and trained himself to this point of just being something else

their similarities though… damn
