overall it's been a good day

If you haven’t listened to the entire “Wild World” album by Bastille then you are missing out on some good introspective music time.

Sugar

Please tell me this is as cute as I intend it to be. Ahhh, unrequested stuff


Dick’s jaw dropped the very moment the elevator’s doors opened and you stepped in.


“Oh hey there!” You greeted Jason who was standing beside him, with a few grocery bags in his hands. Dick hid his face behind his bags and mouthed a “she’s cute” to Jason before the taller male got the chance to greet you back.


“Hi (y/n).” finally said Jason as the doors closed. “How have you been?”


“Oh you know, good, overall I guess” you said nervously, avoiding to meet his gaze. You weren’t sure whether you had blushed or not but for your own dignity’s sake you didnt want to embarrass yourself by looking in his eyes.


Okay but who could blame you for crushing on the hottest person ever, who happened to live right across the hall.


The small talk in which Jason introduced you to his brother died right after the elevator stopped at its destination. Yours and Jason’s floor. You had to admit it was pretty quiet for this time of day, or so you thought as you walked right in front of Jason and Dick to unlock your apartment door.

“Wait you live right across from him?” Dick exhaled, practically jumping off his place, the groceries threatening to fall from his hands.  


“Yes you dick now leave her alone” Jason managed to speak before you and brush the smile off your face that had formed in your attempt to answer. Dick shot you an apologetic stare before going into Jason’s apartment.


With a sigh you entered your apartment too and set the keys on the counter top. Another sigh came out of you before you decided that it was time for you to hop in the shower.


______

“If you don’t hit on her, I will.” Dick spoke, utterly angry at his brother’s behavior.


“What the fuck Dick?” Jason shot immediately back.


“Oh as if you didn’t see the way she acted around you. You’ve probably made her think you wouldn’t lay eyes on her. But maybe you’re acting like that because you like her too” Dick smirked at the thought, mostly because he knew it was the truth. Jason stood there, dumbfounded as he tried to get the groceries into the drawers and fridge.


“I don’t even know if she is in a relationship” Jason said, not meeting Dick’s eyes. A look of disappointment was covering his face.


“ well has anyone ever come here? She lives right across you”


“Well, no one has. But how do I know she’s not meeting anyone?”


“I’ll slap you” Dick threatened “stop being stupid”


“If you slap me I’ll shoot you”


Dick smirked once again as a mischievous plan came to his mind. He was convinced it’s work. It was brilliant.


“Whatever, I’ll make some cereal”


Not even give minutes had passed that Jason had sat on his couch, that he heard the sound of glass shattering.


“Oh fuck Jay.”

“What did you do?” Jason growled and got up, only to be met with the broken glass sugar jar and all it’s contents on the floor.


“I’ll clean it up, I swear. Can you just go get me some sugar?” Dick spoke, trying his best to cover the small laugh in his throat.

“I’ll kill you” Jason yelled as he stormed off the door. Oh he knew the exact reason why Dick had done it, and he wasn’t coming at your door. Oh no, he wasn’t. He’d probably go to the elder lady in the end of the hall.


But then again, this was such a good excuse to see you.


Without seconds thoughts he knocked on your door. Seing there was no response, he started ringing the bell.


“One moment, please” was the only thing he heard and he sat silent, awaiting for you to open the door.

“Hello.” You finally said as you opened the door, clenching a towel on your body.


“Fuck I’m sorry, I didn’t know you were showering. I’ll just-”


“No. Come in” you said with a nervous smile “how could you know I was showering?”


“Yeah.. I just, want some sugar, because Dick had an accident and he needs it for his cereal and I’m bubbling aren’t I?”


If Jason could he’d also his head at the moment. He was never so nervous around women, whether they were naked or not, or half naked, and what the actual fuck was wrong with him? Was he blushing?


“Well it’s in the left drawer. Take as much as you want” you laughed nervously and this time he noticed. He was as much nervous.


The following conversation was a mixture between intense stares, awkward laughs and yeahs. And some more apologies by Jason.


“You should totally crush in my apartment after Dick leaves.” Jason said as he exited the door and knocked on his own, waiting for Dick to open.


“Oh hey again (y/n)!” You laughed as Dick’s expression changed when he saw your towel.


“Hey, Dick. And I’ll be glad to come Jason.”

look. if destiel doesn’t become canon. that’s fine. you know? that’s cool. i mean, just because they both could potentially be happy together, like, romantically and all, that’s fine. i don’t need that. it’s cool. as long as they remain best(est) of friends till the end of their days then that’s fine with me. i just want them to be happy, overall, and if that’s platonic then it’s cool with me. they don’t need to find a different kind of happiness within each other that they both have been pining for, a kind of love that will support and cherish them forever. i mean, it’s really ok. i’m fine. really. 

dean and cas don’t ever have to fall in love.

and i’m okay with that.

Holy Smokes.

So I haven’t blogged on here about my fitness journey since Feburary : BUT…….. I have actually kept up with working out consistently! 

I have found support from lots of people that I follow on Instagram - there I have been able to find awesome workout ideas, learn about supplements, learn different gym routines, as well as have the chance to give and receive kinds words from people who are working toward the same goal that I am: OVERALL HEALTH 

Currently I weigh about 187 on a good day , BUT I have gained so much freaking muscle mass its crazy. I am able to lift things I’ve never been able to life before and lifting weights has done WONDERS for my figure. I will post lots of progress pictures and workout pictures since I have been MIA for such a long time! 

I will also make a blog post of my workout routine and what I have been doing if that is something that people are interested in? If anyone besides my mother is reading this in the first place! 

1. if you turn the volume all the way up, and listen to your favorite song with your eyes closed, you will feel less alone.


2. when you fall in love with being alone you will learn a lot about who you are; then, when you are surrounded by people, you won’t feel so afraid, you won’t feel so out of place. because when you are sure of yourself you don’t feel so obliged to fit, in some place.


3. you will meet people who have never heard your favorite song. and you may not fully understand, but somehow you will trust them with enough of your heart to recommend it to them. those who matter will listen. and they will surprise you.


4. in all your years on this earth, you have learned more than you think. you are more capable than you realize.


5. you don’t know everything. you are not the best, at anything, and you are never the only one. you are not the only one looking for a place to exist honestly - you are not the only one willing to create a place, to exist honestly. people will surprise you.


6. people love you - people will love you. even when you don’t want them to. even when you are ready to give up, even when you are at your lowest point and everyone you love doesn’t have the words you need to hear - they still love you. they will always love you, in whatever way they know how. and it will be enough.


7. God exists. there are shadows you will try to hide behind, and excuses you will try to build - but God exists in the realest way imaginable.


8. these things, this growing, takes time. do not rush it. do not expect to be something, or someone, you’re not - just because someone says you should be. take time to breathe. don’t worry so much about who you’re becoming, rather, focus on what you’re doing. make art. love others. write poems about your love for the moon; learn to love the sun. don’t cling so tightly to the identity that has been handed to you. don’t be so afraid to do what the ache in your chest is telling you to do; do not be so afraid to reach for something, to act on something, bigger than yourself. and you will find, with time, that you’ve become exactly who you need to be.


9. eventually everything will fall into place. it is hard to believe now, that this heartbreak is preparing you for love. it is difficult to grasp, that this displacement - being thrown into such harsh uncertainty - will light your path home. but, listen: you are not a mistake. you are not an accident. you are living, with purpose, and everything surrounding you - every person connected to you, every moment that touches you - is going to make sense one day. i promise, it will all make sense one day. just wait.

Dear Me, (things i learned in 2016) / misplacedpens

things i learned in 2015
things i learned in 2014

So I been playing the Witcher 3 here and there the past few days and sharing it with one of my best friends who also loves the series so much through Share Play and it’s so much fun actually having someone around telling me I’m good at the game and encourages my excitement instead of talking down on me, acting like I’m too dumb to understand most of the things going on etc. Its overall just so lovely having someone who celebrates me for who I am, and loves how stupidly over excited I get.

HoodWinked - Pt. 1

Calum Hood was a rich man. He was the CEO of a major makeup brand, he started with his sister who was now managing her own business. His name was printed everywhere, in newspapers, magazines, and every social media outlet that had anything to do with makeup. HoodWinked was up there with Too Faced and Urban Decay, with its cruelty free guarantee and overall good quality makeup. You could get a bottle of foundation for $32.99 on the beautifully put together website. Appearance was something dear to him.

Calum Hood had earned his position, and a reputation to keep up. He was serious, never fully relaxed unless he was at home. He was careful to never muddy his name. He hadn’t been in the news for anything scandalous and he intended to keep it that way.

Days were busy at the office, something he’d grown to love. He didn’t mind meetings anymore because he cared so deeply for his business. He used to say nothing came between him and the work, until he met you. You were a designer who was helping plan a new look for the website. He found your work online, found it to be quite elegant and just what he wanted. He hired you the next day and it’d been a hectic two weeks in his building. You liked the meetings, too, they were where things came together and they were calmer than the other office life.

“Okay, Ms. Y/L/N, we’ve reviewed your sketches and online ideas for the new website layout.” The lady who started the meetings was older, with brown hair and crow’s feet from years of squinting at her computer screen. She needed glasses but refused to get them. You’d picked that up in the two weeks you’d been here. “Everything meets our standards. We like the colors. We like the phrases you use. We like the theme. But the work isn’t nearly finished. We need to know when you will be done.” She said, looking up from her notes finally and into your eyes.

“Well, I didn’t want to finish something that you didn’t like. I’ve been holding off on the finishing touches. Now that you’ve given me the okay, I will continue with my work as soon as possible.” You spoke from your chair across the table from her. She nodded, opening her mouth to speak but was cut off by no other than Mr. Hood himself.

“That’s Excellent, Ms. Y/L/N. But we need to know a date.” His hands sat on the table before him, fingers intertwined as he patiently waited for an answer. His suit was grey, with a black skinny tie and a light pink dress shirt underneath. His hair was slightly curly, slightly messy and pushed out of his eyes for once. He looked good, no doubt, but he was your boss.

“I suppose if I begin finishing it today,” You paused, looking out the window in thought. “There is still much to be done. I think I need a week, probably at the most a month and the least a week and a half.” You said, eyes going back to his. He nodded.

“Would you please make a list of what has to be done, and get it to me. Then you can begin working on it.” You nodded this time.

“Yes, sir.” You agreed to what he asked. He turned his attention to another person, the meeting went on this way for thirty minutes. People were asked where they were in their work and when they’d be done. They answered. He moved on with the lady whose name you couldn’t remember.

When the meeting ended, you were the last to exit. You kindly held the door for others to leave, and Calum was the last in the room. He came towards you with a soft smile, pushing his hand out to the door and holding. “I got it, thank you.” You let go of the door, watching the weight fall onto his arm and seeing his biceps flex through the suit material. You looked away, walking past him and giving him a thanks before returning to your office to get the list done.

You had your own office. The appearance of the website was high up in importance to Calum. He treated you well. You had a window view of the city, a spacious desk and a comfy seat. Your monitors, two of them, were big so you could get more work done on them. And the pay wasn’t bad either.

You had your music playing through your bluetooth speaker you brought with you, a Twenty One Pilots song on. You were scribbling things you needed to do on a piece of paper as your rough draft, before you typed it up. The list just kept growing as the seconds ticked by. Soon, there was a knock on your door. You didn’t look up from your work when you said, “Come in.”

The door opened, and softly closed. You finally turned around, facing the person. “Oh, hello, sir.” You greeted with a kind smile. He leaned against the second desk in your office.

“Hello, Y/N.” Out of meetings, Calum preferred to call you by your first name. “I just came by to check on your list.” You grab the piece of paper of what seemed like endless words on it.

“Everytime I think I’m done, I realize another thing needs to be done.” You say, laughing a little bit. He nods.

“I understand.” Of course he does. He’s the CEO of a major company.

“I bet you have some stories.” You said, looking out the window at the city again. A comfortable silence fell over the room and you were glad he was sitting there for some reason.

“It’s a beautiful city, isn’t it?” He asked. You nodded in response. “I chose to set up site here because of the views. I’ve always loved San Antonio. Have you been to the Riverwalk by chance?” He asked.

You met his eyes to say, “Not since I visited as a teenager. I’d like to go, to see what’s changed.”

“Maybe you and I could go together. I haven’t been in a few weeks, I’m starting to miss the sound of all the people and the smell in the air of all the restaurants.” You didn’t know why, but your heart sped up at the proposal. You did know why, but that doesn’t mean you wanted to accept it.

“Yes, I’d love to. But how would my boss feel if he was letting me out to a night of fun when I have to finish his website?” You teased. He stood up, breathing in and taking a step towards you.

Leaning down, he whispered in your ear, “Marvelous.” Then he kissed your cheek and slipped out the door in seconds. You were left with the warm feeling of his lips staining your skin for an hour afterwards. You finished your list, typed it up, and sent it his way, finally getting back to working on the website.

“Marvelous.” You said in a very bad Australian accent. “Marvelous.” You pronounced it differently this time. “He said, “Marvelous.”” You said.

“He sounds like he came from 19th century Britain.” Your friend said laughing. You two were having dinner at a restaurant close to your apartment. “Marvelous.” She mocked, holding up her wine glass. You clinked yours to hers and said the word yourself. Laughing, you two took sips from your glasses.

“I can’t believe you two have been badly flirting for almost three weeks now. More so, no one’s caught on.” 

“Have you seen him, though? He’s a looker for sure!” You said, picking up your fork and twirling it in your pasta.

“I know!” She said, a grin on her face. “Do you think he has some friends for me?” You laughed.

“I’ll ask when I see him next.” You joked. She laughed, continuing to eat her pasta. “So how’s your job going? You have the CEO falling for you, too?” You asked. She rolled her eyes.

“Oh no! She’s horrible! She’s so mean! She probably steals candy from babies. But who knows, maybe I’ll have her saying, “Marvelous!” too.” With that you two broke out into laughter again.

“Good morning, Y/n.”

“Good morning, Brian.” A friend you’d made early on was getting coffee in the kitchen the same time you were. He looked tired and upset, but nothing coffee wouldn’t fix. “Something wrong?” You asked, finding a cup for your drink.

“I just didn’t sleep well last night. I didn’t want to come in today, but you know, work must be done.” You nodded, filling your cup with coffee next to him.

“Believe me, I understand.” He chuckled, leaning against the cabinet.

“How’s the website coming along?”

“Very well, thank you for asking. How’s accounting going?”

“It’s crazy. He makes so much money.” He said, sipping from his cup. “And then he donates it and uses it for good and puts it right back into the company and into the employee’s.” He said, looking at the other wall. You stood next to him with your steaming cup of coffee. “He’s a good person, but maybe that will change as he keeps his position.” You nodded. Calum was a good person. And that only made him more likeable. 

“Hey, Y/n.” Calum said, turning around in his chair to face you. “You can close the door if you want.” You nodded, and shut it behind you. Meeting him in his office was becoming more and more common as the days went on. “What’s up?” He asked.

“I just wanted to see you.” You said, sitting on his desk next to him. He looked up at you, smiling slightly.

“That’s good because I’ve been thinking about you all morning.” You smiled down at him. He reached out and set his hand on your thigh. You were wearing a grey skirt with a white blouse tucked into it. Your breath caught in your throat. “I’ve been thinking about this all morning.” He said, standing up and pushing your legs open. He stood in between them and gently cupped your cheeks with his rough hands.

He inched closer and closer, slowly, and slower. He stopped all of a sudden, thumb brushing over your cheek smoothly. “But I’ve been imagining it elsewhere.” He said, pulling back and sitting in his seat again.

You were amazed at what just happened. He smirked up at you as he saw you were missing his closeness when a small pout spread on your lips. “This is a great view, princess.” He said, motioning towards your open legs with his eyes. You quickly pulled them together and he was the one to pout this time.

“I’ll give you an even better view later tonight, if you want.” You said, standing and leaning towards him. You pecked his forehead. “I’ll see you later, sweetheart.”

Opening the door he said, “Please come back soon, darling.” How did you two manage to go from hot and heavy to sweet and light in three seconds? You didn’t know but you liked it. A lot.

Today, I fucked up by costing my company just under 3.5 million.

So, this actually happened today!

I work at a winery owned by a fairly large player in the game. To give some back story, we are employed as “vintage casuals” for about 4 months of the year, to help out with the busiest part of their season. Its good money (I take about $1800 aud clear a week for a 72 hour week) but overall, its pretty mundane work. The permanent staff call us “insurance policies” - basically making sure the wine doesn’t go off, heat up to much, and add bits and pieces to stop it from doing the afore mentioned.

At one point in the wine making process, the grapes that have been sitting in their tanks for days are pumped to a machine that gets rid of all the skins and seeds and crap (a press), leaving only the juice. The juice is then reverted back into its original tank like a massive super soaker to push the seeds and skins to the first machine until its only just the juice going around and around. To start this process off, a little bit of finished wine is used for the super soaker, but this also means that the crappy grapes and stuff is connected to the finished wine’s tank.

Onto the fuck up - so one of the permanents had just started this whole process, using the finished wine to begin. He then called me on the radio to shut of the valve to the finished wine and “swing it” so that just the juice from the unfinished wine is being used.

Now I’ve done this a hundred times, but as I walked up to the tank, I only saw one tank tap and thinking “that’s odd”, I turned the tap on, and as always, just walked away to continue my other jobs.

A couple of hours later, my supervisor calls me into his office and asked:
Supervisor: Did you swing the tap on tank 934?
Me: Yeah?
Supervisor: Did you close the finished wines tank?

It was then to my horror that I realised what I had done… At the end of the day, I pushed through 20,000L of unfinished wine that was eventually destined to be about $5 a bottle (cost), making that a $140,000 loss… Bad… but in the big scheme of things… not the worse. However, I pumped that 20,000L of unfinished cheap crappy wine… into 150,000L of $15 (cost) a bottle wine… making a total loss of $3,350,000.

I find out if I keep my job tomorrow night… my only saving grace all depends on if I’ve totally ruined the wine or if it can be re sold as some thing cheaper…

TIFU: Internet`s best fucked up stories are here.

Dandelions

I love dandelions - they do amazing things. Dandelion tea, dandelion salve, coffee from the ground roots……endless uses. Dandelions support overall health by gently working to improve the functioning of the liver, gallbladder, and urinary and digestive systems. Today’s concoction is infused dandelion oil, which has been sun-infusing on the window sill for a month now. The oil is great as a massage oil for sore, achy muscles, and today I strained it, added a few drops of peppermint and lime, and its now ready for hubster’s tired, aching muscles when he comes home from a day of plastering and bike-fixing. 

Next, I’ll be using some of the oil to make a salve, good for rough, chapped skin, ideal during these gardening months.

Hey Ty! So uh,, I'm a senior in high school and all I've really been able to focus on is getting into an art college. It's been my overall goal for a good while now and I'm really really nervous about my portfolio not being good enough, or being turned down.. Do you have an idea of what a typical portfolio that get's accepted looks like? What kind of standards are art colleges looking for in a portfolio? Anyways, you've been a huge inspiration to me and I hope you have a great day!

Hey!! First off good luck on your college search!

My advice for portfolios is as follows:

  • Include around 8-12 pages
  • Start with 2-3 of your strongest pieces
    (you want to grab their attention!)
  • Fill the middle with sketch pages
    (show them how you think, show off your process)
  • End with a strong piece for the last page
    (remind them of your strengths!)

Your portfolio should look something like this in the end:

This applies to both colleges and future jobs, and again, good luck!

Ransom and Holster are totally the kind of trolls who would buy a fake engagement ring and then fake propose at really fancy restaurants to get free meals.

But they don’t go for the happy ending proposal con, instead:

They get all the way to dessert and then one proposes and the other ones says no, and breaks up with them crying and runs out, all very dramatically of course, and the restaurant pays for their meal because omg poor dude just got crushed in front of everybody!

And then one day, on one of Holster’s turn to propose, Ransom is kind of frozen staring at him, noticing the way his eyes are sparkling with mischief cause they are sharing a secret and a joke and God that man has been his best friend and his rock for so long…

And he’s realising he doesn’t want to say no, so he says yes, and then they are both frozen cause what do they do now?

“KISS YOU IDIOTS!” somebody shouts and they do, and it’s their first kiss but also its like they’ve been doing it all their lives…

People clap and they are still a bit shocked, but happy and giddy, and they’ll date properly first and one day they’ll do the whole proposal thing for real, in private and with a real ring, but for now this is turning into a pretty great getting together story.

Also they get their meal for free so overall this day is turning out pretty good for them…

today i slept in, cut my hair, drove to my usual coffee shop and sat in an unusual booth (for me anyways!), jumped in rain puddles, drank multiple cups of coffee, and got hit on by a group of girls who thought i was a boy. overall, its been a good day.

I’ve always wanted to make a video like this and now I finally have. This took me a couple of weeks to make because I’ve been really busy. It’s my first video and I kinda like it. I hope you all enjoy it. If you can, please give me feedback because I want to make more of these with different people and just overall improve the video content. Thanks. Hope you have a good day.

I’m sure this has to have been done before but eh. I’ve wanted to do this crossover for a long time now, and Halloween gives me an excuse.

Things that I didn’t have time to scribble out but are still very important. Please consider:

  • Carlos getting his brand new heart, and becoming instantly concerned when he realizes how erratic and out-of-time its beating is.
  • Cecil proudly showing off his new degree, declaring him ‘A Real People Person’, to anyone who will look.
  • Dana with super cute ruby slippers, and just being an overall super perfect Dorothy.

My Draw Richonne every day for a year challenge!

Day 24! (3-26-16)

Drawn with pencil, colored with colored pencils.

I saw this adorable picture of the actors for the Grimes fam (-1), and I couldn’t help but redraw it as the characters they play. And of course I added Judith, because I need to make the family complete.

I feel really good about this one. I keep bringing up the fact that I was super insecure about my art recently, because its true. I hated everything i drew and at times I felt like quitting this challenge. But recently I’ve been feeling so much better about what i’ve been doing, and I feel like I’m kinda on a roll. Im gonna stay with paper for a while, because its what I’m comfortable with. I’ll still push myself with digital now and then, but for now I feel I need to take a break from that for the most part.

Had a long, rough, but overall good day, and I’m ending it on a great note, i think. Loving everyone’s positivity. As usual, any ideas, requests, suggestions, or just comments are welcome, as long as they are presented politely/kindly!

Trudeau is doing well so far, what with the Cabinet and the long form census, etc, but I keep feeling like this is too good to be true! It freaks me out! I want all of these good things, but I'm so bitter because of Harper

I’m still skeptical, but that’s a good position to have. Nobody should have your undying support and trust; that needs to be earned.

I will praise Trudeau when he does things well, but I’m also going to be very critical when things don’t go well.

But I am feeling cautiously optimistic overall. Its been a good few days for Canada. :)
