Since I’ve experienced so much attitude in my time at Mode, I’d like to posit an observation: One thing that is often lost in the changing of an attitude is the cause for that change. This is best understood when you consider attitudes on a personal level. I ask you, dear reader, to think back to a time when you experienced a major shift in your life. Was it an external change, something that happened outside of you, and forced a change of attitude to help you adapt to the future? Perhaps you saw a friend demonstrate a prowess that cast her in a new light. Heck, maybe it was as simple as your friend getting a makeover. Or perhaps that friend was undergoing her own life change, one in which she would no longer be present in your life, compelling you to make your own change to keep her in it, even if it were in a new context.
Just as important: Maybe the change was an internal one. Maybe you realized you were no longer interested in maintaining your status quo. Perhaps you wanted to try new challenges not only in your professional life, but also in your personal one. Or maybe one day something just changed inside you in the way you saw that good friend, causing you to want her to be more than, well, just a friend.

→ DAY FIVE: FAVORITE PROTECTING/SAVING-EACH-OTHER-MOMENT
You saved me. Yeah, well, you came to this crazy land to save me, so it’s only fair, right? You… remember? Yeah. I remember. When you couldn’t hurt Henry, he was about to actually kill and become everything I never wanted him to be. That’s when I knew. Are they…? Oh, they’re not real. I didn’t actually kill anyone. Yeah, I know. You just needed to wake me. Thank you.
I have come to realize that in every fandom whatever pairing you ship, there will always be those assholes who can’t leave you alone to ship in peace. Whether it’s canon or not. 😂😂😂 Why must there be conflict? Can’t we all just ship in peace. I don’t require anyone else to validate my otp. I don’t need to convince you of how your ship should or will never happen. Ship wars are annoying af. Ship whatever you want, you don’t need to get up in anyone else’s business just because they disagree with you. Why can’t we all just stay in our own lanes? You do whatever tf you want, just don’t pester anyone else for having different preferences. Love only or at the very least empathy for other shippers.
I was in third grade and my friend asked if I wanted to play Buffy in gym class. I didn’t know who Buffy was but it sounded like fun. I agreed to be Willow and we ran around the jungle gym with sticks catching vampires.
Little did I know, Buffy would change and shape my life for the next two decades.
In middle school, when kids were having sleepovers and discovering parties and boys, I would wrap myself in a blanket in my room and rewatch the episodes of Buffy I had painstaking taped week after week.
My first crush was Angel, my heart breaking when Buffy had to sacrifice him to save the world.
Willow was my best friend, my heart racing when she finally found love with Oz, my heart soaring when she met the one with Tara.
Xander taught me that sometimes people will judge you but that doesn’t mean they don’t love you. Accept people’s flaws because they can learn and grow if you help them.
Despite all odds, I fell in love again when we re-met Spike in season 4, discovering my first “OTP” and never looking back.
Buffy herself was the hero I needed. She was strong but she was flawed. She could save the world in one moment and give in to her selfish desires the next. We don’t need role models who paint a picture of perfection. We need role models who show us that the path isn’t always clear or easy to follow. You will make mistakes and you will fall. Keep fighting. No matter what happens. Never let anyone underestimate you.
Buffy went off the air when I was in the 8th grade. It was heartbreaking to say goodbye to 7 years of my favorite show, and daunting to enter high school without the safety of the Scooby Gang to welcome me home every Tuesday night at 8.
Buffy taught me to be strong and to embrace who I am.
seriously in love. [ listen ] // are you never going to let anyone in again because you might get hurt? trust me, you don’t want that. it’s really lonely. because people need people. i love you, and you love me. we need to be together. say we need to be together.
you got a home for now and forever: a caminah masterpost
because this is long overdue and they’re literally the most important thing to ever happen and they’re the best friends in the history of best friends and I need somewhere to vent let’s get started shall we

But the mountains will shake, I need to know I can still make, Explosions… on the day you wake up needing somebody, And you’ve learned, it’s okay to be afraid, but it will never be the same, it will never be the same.
Gmw is like pll leaving us with all these unanswered questions:
-why does Lucas let Maya make fun of him
-why did Lucas get kicked out of school
-what did they put as their lives impossible things
-where the heck is josh and how come Maya forgot about him
-how come Maya never actually told Riley what happened in Texas
-why did Cory say “I didn’t think you liked anyone” when clearly he knew she liked josh
-why were farkle and zay forgetting the fact that Maya stepped back for her friend too (for almost 2 years may I add)
AND A TON OF OTHER SHIT OKAY IM DONE BC THIS SHOW STRESSES ME OUT TOO MUCH
Okay so let’s get everything straight before I’m too tired to write (or too drunk but that I already am) :
I’m really really excited about Elsa in OUAT because I LOVE Frozen BUT, I’m pretty sure they’ll screw this up by making her Evil (but look at Peter Pan tho) and won’t respect her story and character as much as we want. But this won’t stop me to be fucking happy about that crossover.
I also know they are doing this only for more audience. I’m not stupid, I KNOW.
I’m as pissed and sad as all of you about Swan Queen and Regina, but I’ll NEVER stop shipping them. No matter what happens on the show. They are my One True Pairing and nothing will ever change that.
Yes I will probably have a lot of fun with Ice Queen because I had this headcanon the instant I saw the movie ; but I’m not the kind to ship something without seeing a little about it on screen first. Again this does not mean I’m jumping ship, I’ll just enjoy this possibility. Swan Queen will always remains my OTP.
I so hope the Frozen fandom won’t take this new thing too seriously because I don’t want Frozen to be ruined for anyone.
I need to stop blogging while drunk because damn I’ll be ashamed of myself tomorrow.
I love you all so dearly, I would never write this while drunk if I didn’t. SWEN and my followers are my second family, and nothing will change that, nor my love for the glorious Swan Queen ship.
