How to turn your boring money gift into something special x 💸

Needed:

- Dollar bill

- Creative hands

Instructions

Step 1. Crease the bill horizontally down the middle and fold both the top and bottom sides inward

Step 2. Take the upper side and fold a little piece behind

Step 3. Fold the two corners over, just like the picture is showing. Later, these corners are used to keep the shirt in place

Step 4. Take the opposite side of where we were working on earlier and bring it over

Step 5. Flip again and make sure it goes underneath the collar, this must be the case otherwise you can’t complete the shirt

Step 6. Unfold the last 2 steps

Step 7. Here’s where it gets a little trickier. Pay close attention. You are now back to the long section, use the first fold line to fold the sleeves. Fold out and crease back so that it winds up looking like you popped a sleeve out of the side

Step 8. Now fold back up like you did in step 4 and 5

Step 9. Put the shirt underneath the collar

There you have it, the ultimate lazy gift!

I’m very lazy to do good pics. Alas.

Chapter 10. Lina.
Three months later.


To live with Denis was not as I imagined. He worked all the time, lecturing in the morning, and the rest of the time he was lost in the workshop. He slept for three or four hours a day, and sometimes he could paint for two days in a row. And nothing in it showed fatigue, only his eyes became quite yellow and evil.
To me, his attitude changed - he behaved like an older brother, could pat me on the head, but nothing more that could give at least some of his feelings for me. And I did not understand why. I turned seventeen and deep down I hoped … For what? The fact that he will kiss me at least on my birthday?
What happened to him? Why did he treat me like that after that evening? I could not understand.


The man was sleeping on the couch in the living room, and I often noticed how he rubbed his lower back in the morning and felt remorse because his back hurts because of me.


Once I could not stand it and at night I came to him. Lied next to Denis, put her hands on his chest, feeling how measured his heart beats. He embraced me in a dream, his lips pressed against mine, unconsciously kissing me. The man’s hands slid under my T-shirt, squeezing my chest and I took a deep breath. Apparently, this is what awakened him. He opened his eyes sharply and stared at me in bewilderment.
- Lina? - he asked hoarsely. - What are you doing, damn you?
He jumped up from the couch and stared at me angrily.
- Shall I lock the door? Am I entitled sometimes to sleep? Angelina, can you hear me? I do not need a mistress, understand this!
I bit my lip and rushed to the door. Oh, what an idiot he is! Anya was absolutely right when she told me not to mess with him! And why do not I ever listen to adults?
- Wait, Lina… -  he caught up with me and took me by the hand. - Forgive me. I did not mean that. I really do not need now … such a relationship.
- That is, when you kissed me, it was all … just like that?
- I clarified, trying not to let my voice shake.
- No, - he shook his shaggy head. - Lina, I can not explain to you now … I … No, it’s impossible.
The man kissed my fingers and asked:
- Go to sleep, Lina. Just remember - I did everything quite seriously.
He pushed me to the door and, I had no choice but to go to the bedroom in deep perplexity. What does this man hide?

**
Denis.
I leaned back on the couch and laughed hysterically.
- She came to me - I told the darkness in the corner.  - Oh, my God, she came to me. And I did not do anything! Terrific!
She excites me. Every movement of Lina echoed in me, and I realized that even an easy kiss can result in sex, whether the girl wants it or not.
The fact that she eventually began to live with me was wrong. With every minute I wanted it all the stronger. I downloaded myself in full; tried not to touch her and generally see less of the girl, but it did not help much.
In almost seventeen years we had sex with Anya for the first time, so I had no doubt that Lina could also mature for this. But it meant that after the first night the girl would most likely leave me, and I was not ready for such a turn of events.
I lay down on my stomach and pressed my hot cheek to the upholstery of the sofa. The darkness in the corner became thicker, blotted into a tight lump and took on the outlines of his father.
“As always, worthless and miserable” - he sounded soundlessly, his lips curling contemptuously. I remembered this grin for the rest of my life. What a pity that when my father was alive, I could not do anything to erase it from his face. How I wanted to smash his lips in the blood, feel the salty taste in the tongue, hear the crunching of breaking teeth and understand that here it is - freedom! My father died much earlier, before I had time to grow a little and fulfill this dream. However, I still gained freedom.
I’ve grown up a long time, but my father’s visions do not leave me. Am I free?
And does Lina need a half-crazy man?
Blood ran from the nose. I closed my eyes, trying not to pay attention to my father’s mutter. Probably, I still went crazy. A little more, Denis, stay a little longer on this side.
Deep breath. I opened my eyes. My father disappeared, which means that you can live on. I can handle.

Attention littles/subs

I know our caregivers/doms are supposed to take care of us but who takes care of them? This is a list of things you can do to help take care of your dom/caregiver.


1. Ask them how their day was. It will mean a lot to them that you care about their every day life.

2. Thank them when they take care of you. As little’s we often forget to do this

3. Remind them how much you love them. Because it’s easy to forget especially if you have poor mental health and also it’s just nice to be reminded

4. Remind them it’s okay to use the safe word if they need too. Because sometimes they just need a break from sexy time or being a dom/caregiver.

5. Offer them a massage after a hard/long day at school/work. Lotion or essential oils are a nice touch

6. Pay close attention when they are telling you about their day. It will feel good if they know you’re actually interested in what happened.

7. If their upset sit down with your favorite stuffie and offer to listen to why they’re upset.

8. Make them their favorite meal if you’re feeling big enough or order food from their favorite take out place.

9. Draw them a picture to show how much you appreciate them. Bonus points if you make it fun in their wallet/bag so they can look at it when ever they’re feeling down.

10. Offer them one of your stuffies if they’re feeling down. It might make them smile and cheer them up a bit.

11. Tell them what you need. They don’t know instinctively all the time and it just makes their job as your dom/caregiver so much easier.

12. Do things around the house you wouldn’t normally do and they usually do. Ex: laundry, dishes, clean, and so on.

13. I know it’s hard but sometimes our doms/caregivers need a little space to just take a breather. And if that’s the case, leave them with your stuffies for however long they need and let them clear their head.

14. If you can tell they’ve had a bad day, don’t pressure them into sexy time or play time. Just like we need breaks doms and caregivers do too.

15. After care is essential for doms and caregivers just as much as it is for subs. It isn’t talked about enough but doms/caregivers need aftercare too. They get a lot of the same feelings as us subs just in slightly different ways. Instead of them just taking care of you take care of each other together. Curl up under a blanket together, take a shower together, have a hot/cold beverage together, give each other body rubs. It will probably bring you both closer together.

That’s all I could think of for now. Feel free to add any you can think of and I’ll add more as I think of them.

“Why are numbers beautiful?  
It’s like asking why is Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony beautiful. I know numbers are beautiful. If they  
aren’t beautiful, nothing is.”
-Paul Erdos, Hungarian mathematician


–INTRO-
 

“1×8+1=9, isn’t it?”
Yes, it is. Continue.
“12×8+2=98, isn’t it?”
Yes.
Then, “123×8+3=987”
Wait.
Where is your calculator?
Yes, it’s correct.
“1234×8+4=9876”
Lots of numbers start forming a line.
“12345×8+5=98765”
“123456×8+6=987654”
“1234567×8+7=9876543”
Wondering what these numbers are?
Then I’ll disclose the secret of the trick.

-SUMMERY- 

I’m going to show you other pyramids.
Are you ready for your calculator?
One is this.

And one more.

111,111,111*111,111,111=12345678987654321, which is a basic counting series, read from either end.


-MAIN DISCUSSION-

Every number no matter how large that is equally divided by 9, will equal 9, if you add all the numbers it is made from until there is 1 digit.
A quick example of what I mean:
9∗99=891

8+9+1=18

1+8=9

-

Natures secret about 3,6, and 9…?

“We have to cast out all 9’s.”

What does that mean?
It means that any number that is above the value 9 or one place value is going to be added together to get a single digit.
So this means if we have a number 26, we add 2+6 to get 8, which is its “archetype”.
If we do this for all numbers while doubling and halving, we get a pattern.
This. The secret to the Universe is DOUBLING and HALVING.
3 and 6’s are constantly oscillating back and forth between each other in the doubling and halving scheme.

The number 9 is the unchanging, unwavering number that never really loses its true identity, even though it is undergoing a constant state changing. (pay close attention)

9 X 1 = 09
9 X 2 = 18
9 X 3 = 27
9 X 4 = 36
9 X 5 = 45
9 X 6 = 54
9 X 7 = 63
9 X 8 = 72
9 X 9 = 81
9 X  10 = 90

If you didn’t realize it yet, the secret to the above multiplication of 9’s, is hidden in this…

0
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10

Now besides the right side of the numbers, reverse the order of numbers to be going (counting) backwards…

0 9
1 8
2 7
3 6
4 5
5 4
6 3
7 2
8 1
9 0

Put them together…

09
18
27
36
45
54
63
72
81
90

You just created the answers to the 1-10 multiplication of 9…

9 X 1 = 09
9 X 2 = 18
9 X 3 = 27
9 X 4 = 36
9 X 5 = 45
9 X 6 = 54
9 X 7 = 63
9 X 8 = 72
9 X 9 = 81
9 X  10 = 90

Now once again, see how the answers we just did, end up actually returning back into the number 9…
Now watch… as you are about to see just how powerful #9 really is..

(Answers)
09
18
27
36
45
54
63
72
81
90

Now… add them together…
lets do the first three together…
0+9= 9
1+8= 9
2+7= 9
Have you caught on yet?
Lets see all of them now..

0+9= 9
1+8= 9
2+7= 9
3+6= 9
4+5= 9
5+4= 9
6+3= 9
7+2= 9
8+1= 9
9+0= 9

So all the multiplications of 9, end up returning back to 9.
even large numbers…

Take any number like, 143.. now times it by 9..
you’ll get 1287
So
143 X 9 = 1287
Now add the digits together, not counting above 10 (after 9 start over at 1)
1287
Add the 1+2+8 first, which will get you 2, then add 2 with the remaining digit, 7, giving you… #9.

Try some numbers yourself.

Then there is the addition with #9…
In this method, adding 9 to any number will have an answer that equals the amount of the original number added to 9.
Lets start,
Add any number to 9.
Lets do 13 since its a double digit.
9+13= 22
But first since this is a double digit we used to add to number 9, lets now get the value of its digits together.
13
1+3= 4
So going back, we just got 4 from the 1+3, which came from the value of the two digits of the number 13, which we are adding with 9.
Continuing..
So back to 9+13 = 22
The 22 we got, if added together gives us, 4… the same number we got from the value of 13 (1+3), which we just added to 9.

Now lets do this with a single digit…
Lets do 7
9+7 = 16
16(or 1+6) = 7

Another one..
9+4=13
13=4

9+5=14
14=5

9+8=17
17=8

9+9=18
18=9

So on and so forth….

Genre: Angsty smut

Pairing: Reader x Park Chanyeol / Oh Sehun.

Word Count: 1,072 words

Summary: When Chanyeol’s old friend comes back from studying abroad, you find yourself seeing him less and less. Your boyfriend hasn’t been paying attention to you, so Sehun steps in to comfort you instead.

Y/N

Sehun proposed to you. You’d been so happy you cried. He took you to the Han River and proposed to you there. He told you to close your eyes and, when you opened them, he was on his knees with the most beautiful ring you’d ever laid your eyes on. That was when you started bawling like an idiot. Sehun thought it was cute and started laughing, while on his knee. In retaliation, you wiped your tears and put the ring on yourself.

He’d said, “I thought I was the one proposing…”

And you’d said, “Just kiss me.” And he did. He kissed you in the same place that he asked you to be his girlfriend.

1. Listen to old songs, they’ll give you so many different feels. Sing to them. Aloud.

2. Go out on a cafe and spoil yourself. Buy ice cream or eat a whole cake.

3. Walk around and see the world revolve on its own. Pay attention to
the little details like the people that hustle around.

4. Give money to beggars in the streets.

5. Dance under the rain. And do it like no one’s looking.

6. Listen to diverse music. Don’t stick to one favorite artist this time. Put your playlist on shuffle. Try a different genre. Put it on speakers. And then close your eyes. Listen to the lyrics. Bang your head, tap your feet. Feel the music engulf you.

7. Read an exciting book.

8. Randomly text your parents that you love them.

9. Go to church.

10. Take random pictures. Of people, of things. Even shitty ones. Just take them.

11. Catch up with an old friend.

12. Learn something new. Like a new language. Or for an easier alternative, another alphabet.

13. Talk to strangers, especially the older ones. It may not even be face-to-face. Leave notes everywhere. Tell people they look lovely. Make someone else’s day.

14. Go to a playground. Even an old pathetic one. Bask in the patheticness of it.

15. Pat children’s heads.

16. Rip posters off their posts. Just once. Or maybe twice. Thrice. Be a rebel for a tad second.

a/n: I might actually continue this idea at some point because it was pretty fun to write, loved this idea!

Honestly, you felt like you’d be happier if you never set eyes on Dean Winchester again.

You’d been in town a few weeks, working for Mary Winchester at her diner when she’d suggested setting you up on a blind date. It had been a fair amount of time since you’d had any kind of romance in your life, and you were new in town, so meeting new people wouldn’t hurt, right?

Making Shoyu-Tamago (Ramen Eggs)

I’ll be honest with you. 

When I first wrote this post I had a questionably beautiful paragraph of melancholia about this thing and that, about life et cetera. Fast forward 2 hours later and all those have been removed and I am now here to bitch and moan about eggs.

Eggs are so deceptive, you see. Seemingly unassuming, but they can be a little bugger to cook and peel. Where I live eggs only come in one size. There are no larges, mediums or smalls so the rule of thumb “6 minutes for a large egg = soft yolk” doesn’t really apply. For these I guess-timated that for medium sized eggs at room temperature I would need to boil them for roughly 5 minutes to achieve firm whites and runny yolk. 

To help shell them, there is this neat little trick floating about on the internet where you combine ice cold water with some malt vinegar, for the eggs to be put into to chill after they’re boiled. There is only one catch - you have to let the eggs chill for 3-4 hours.

Good lord. You could lay your own egg by the time you wait for these to chill the ever loving fudge out. You could knit a sweater by the time you wait for these to chill the ever loving fudge out. You could…

You get the point.

So I decided to try another trick, which is to use a push pin to make a little hole at the bottom of each eggs, which worked wonderfully! 

All in all these were a modest success. If you scroll further down you can see that the results range from “OOoh pretty egg!” to “Holy shit what is that shriveled thing?”. The important thing though, is that they all taste the same. And that taste is pretty good. The salty-sweet soy sauce brine really brings out the richness of the yolk, so do give it a go to add to your ramen bowl or soups.

SHOYU-TAMAGO:

[ 6 eggs + 1 cup water + 1 cup soy sauce + 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed + 2 scallions or green onion, sliced + 1 ounce ginger, crushed + ½ cup brown sugar ]

The majority of recipes I’ve read for these eggs require you to have the eggs cold or refrigerated, and although that may be the norm for most people, in our house eggs never stay around long enough to even make it to the fridge. So, room temperature eggs completely a-okay.

Put all the ingredients except the eggs in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiled, turn off the heat and set aside to let it cool down to room temperature.

Fill another pan with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower to medium-high once the water boils. 

Use a push-pin to gently poke a small hole at the bottom of each egg. This will help loosen the eggshells when you peel them.

Gently lower the eggs into the pan of boiling water. Gently being the key word. Set your timer to 6 minutes and pay close attention to it.

From 0 to 2 minutes, grab a chopstick or a spoon and start swirling the water to spin the eggs. You’re going to do this for the entirety of two minutes. The reason for this is the centrifugal force of the spinning water will make the middle the yolk set and harden, while the outer yolk will stay runny - making it the prettiest pretty egg yolk in all the world.

Once you’ve reached 6 minutes, pour out the hot water and run the eggs with cold water until cooled completely. Alternatively, you could submerge the eggs in ice water. Carefully peel the eggs.

Pour the marinating liquid into a ziploc bag or a bowl and submerge the eggs. If you’re using bowl, then put two layers of paper towels on top of the eggs an gently push until submerged completely. 

Leave to marinate in the fridge for 12 hours. This will keep for a week in the refrigerator. Bring back to room temperature before serving.

Enjoy!

I started getting on Tumblr last year to find other women who are TTC. I’ve been trying actively for 2.5 years, not doing anything to prevent pregnancy for nearly 7.

I’ve found myself looking for opportunities to take a baby from Walmart when their parents aren’t paying attention. Then I’d get out of town, lay low for a year or two, and get away with it. Let me tell you how crazy I feel when I look at parents of a newborn and think “I could outrun them.”

Right now, after a very close call with cervical cancer, my doctor told me that he wants me to hold off on getting pregnant for 6 months— until October. I was like nah, bro. I’m not going back to condoms for 6 months “just in case.” But, my next step is Clomid, and he won’t start me on it until I get the all clear.

I’m 32, I’ll be 33 in October. I want to have 3 babies, so it’s not like I have endless amounts of time to “wait and see.” I’m tired of feeling so crazy all the time, and so intensely heartbroken every month when, once again, I haven’t conceived. Why is pregnancy so easy for so many people, but not for me? So few people understand what it’s like to fail at the most basic part of being a woman. Their platitudes and encouragements make me want to punch them. So far, there is nothing that should be making conception impossible for me. Harder, yes, but not impossible.

So now, I wait. And wait. Somehow, I still hope, too. I want my own baby so much.

Yoongi’s Point of View

Just as I was lost in my sleep I began to feel my phone vibrate making me wake up. Ugh..

I sat up still having my eyes closed and pulled out my phone from pocket and answered without even paying attention who was calling me.

“Hello?”

“Yoongi where did put jacket?” I hear Jin complain about it on the other side of the phone.

“Yah you call me about a dumb jacket,”

“Yoongi I need it.”

“Check the closet,”

The phone went quiet and I continued to have my eyes close.

“Found it…”

I rolled my eyes and hanged up. I got woken up for no reason. I eventually opened my eyes and I looked around and I looked to my left and found Y/N laying down on the couch sound asleep.

Was the movie that bad that it made her fall asleep?

I got up and walked over to the tv to turn it off. I then looked at Y/N and couldn’t help but to smile.

She looked peaceful and adorable curled up in a ball sound a sleep.

I slowly approached her on the couch and got down on my knees and looked her.

My heart began to race and I slowly rubbed my hand gently on her cheek. I looked down at her lips and felt a temptation to kiss her….

Should I do it?

~

I continued to stare at her and just as I was going to take a risk and I slowly began to lean in but I stopped myself and continued to stare at her again.

What am I doing?

Was kissing her when she’s a sleep even worth it?

Just as I was about to try again I begin to hear keys jingle near the door and I quickly got up looked the at the door knowing it was Y/N uncle. 

“I’m home,” I heard singing coming from the front door. 

I walked over to the door and looked at Y/N uncle standing right there smiling. 

“Hello sir,”

“Where’s Y/N?” he asks as he takes off his shoes and replaces it with slippers.

“She’s actually napping..”

“Hm took all her energy away. Good to hear, your free to go,” he says as he nods his head and I bowed down to him and left out the door. 

~

Your Point of View 

“What are you doing…” you asked slowly backing up and you were now against the wall as Yoongi was standing right in front of you.

“What does it look like i’m doing?” Yoongi smirks as he pins his hand above your head and was now inches away.

“Invading my personal space, that’s for sure.”

“Don’t act like you don’t like it,” he smirks and your eyes widen. 

Where was this side coming from? 

“Yoongi…”

“What do you want me to do?” he asks lifting up your chin with his finger and you two were now staring at each other in the eyes 

“Yoongi please…” you choked out.

You don’t know if you were begging him to let you go or to kiss you.. You were so caught up in the moment you were honestly confused.

He begins to lean in making your heart beat out of your chest. Just as you lips were inches apart..

“Y/N,” You began to feel someone tap your shoulder making you open your eyes slowly. 

It was all a dream… Why were you dreaming about Yoongi? 

You slowly sat up and see you uncle standing in front of with a tray of food.

“Sorry for waking you up, but I thought maybe you were probably hungry by now.” he smiles as he gently places the tray on your lap and you smiled.

“Thanks..”

You looked down at the food and it looked delicious but you began to look around and didn’t find Yoongi anywhere in sight.

“Um.. Where is Yoongi?” you asked slowly making sure he didn’t get the wrong idea.

“Since i came early, i let him off the hook.”

“Oh..”

You grabbed the spoon and gently got a hold of the soup your uncle made and brought it close to your lips and blew the hotness away. And slowly took your first bite.

“Why, do you like him? 

As soon as you heard those words escape your uncle’s mouth your eyes widen and you began to cough choking on the soup you just put in your mouth.

“Y/N!” You uncle says running over to you and gently tapping you in the back.

Eventually you finished coughing and you looked at your uncle.

“What do you mean do I like him?

You uncle begins to laugh and sit down next to you.

“I mean do you like his company?”

“Oh…. right..” you said awkwardly looking down at the soup and your uncle just continued to shake his head and chuckle. 

Why do you feel so guilty having a small crush on Yoongi?

~

“Thank you for dinner,” you shouted as you approached your bedroom door and stepped in closing the door behind you. 

You walked over to your bed and sat down. You would be lying if you were to say you didn’t have a bad first day here at Seoul but now it wasn’t so bad.. 

You looked over to your purse that was laying on your bed and slowly approached it. You pulled out the picture strip you took with Yoongi and sat back down on your bed and just stared at the picture..

Who knew you would develop some type of feeling for Yoongi…

You couldn’t do anything about it though.. 

You sighed and got up from your bed. You walked over to your unpacked suitcase and pulled out random tape. 

As you had the tape in your hand, you walked over to the wall and grabbed a small piece of tape and placed the picture of you and Yoongi on the wall. 

You smiled looking at the picture right in front of you and couldn’t help but to stare at the last picture… The picture where you two really stare at each other.. Where you took a really good look at him..

~

“What?” You asked confused and your uncle smiles.

“Well Yoongi told me earlier about his trip to camp with his roommates and I decided it would be great if you were go with him and get to see the beautiful woods of Seoul.”

“Wow..” you smiled and your uncle now looked at you confused.

“What?”

“You're trusting me alone with boys in the woods?” You crossed your arms and your uncle began to chuckle.

“I know Yoongi, and he has good intentions… I wouldn’t let you go if I knew he wanted to do something bad to you.”

You sighed and shrugged.

“So when’s the trip?”

“Today. I’m telling you now of course to get packed up.”

“Does Yoongi know I’m going?” You asked surprised.

“Yeah, I paid him even more to invite you.”

You gave your uncle a glare and he smiles and walks off leaving in you room alone.. Wow… a camping trip with yoongi?

Wait… did your uncle just mention that his roommates were joining too?

What? 

~

“What time is Y-” before you could finish your question you hear the doorbell ring making you jump up in surprise.

“Yoongi’s here!”

You got up from the couch chair and walked over to the front door slowly. You took a deep breath before opening the door and you found Yoongi standing right then and there with his hands in his pockets.

You started to hear laughter and you slowly push over to the left and saw 6 guys near a van laughing and fooling around.

You were going to be with 7 GUYS!

“Ready for the camping trip?” Yoongi asks smiling.

“I have a question for you,” you crossed your arms before you could do anything else.

“Oh no… not the questions again..”

“Shut up, anyways why didn’t you mention the camping trip to me yesterday?”

“I forgot?” he says in question form and you rolled your eyes. 

“Well thanks for letting me know ahead of time to be prepared.” you mumbled as you grabbed your duffle bag and you could hear Yoongi chuckle.

~

“Boys, I would like you to meet… a friend.” he says and you looked at him totally surprised. Did he just call you a friend? Are you hearing correctly?

“You must be Y/N! Yoongi has t-” before one of them could finish their sentence you see them lower their head and look down. 

You glanced at Yoongi the poor boy giving him a death glare for speaking.

“Yoongi has what?”

“Not important,” Yoongi says putting his arm around your shoulder and you pushed his arm away.

“I’m Taehyung by the way,” he says reaching over for you hand and you both gave each other a proper handshake and exchanged smiles.

One by one the boys all began to introduce themselves. They were all super nice so far just meeting them. Why was Yoongi so… what’s the word? Why was he such an ass when you first met him?

“Yoongi, you should learn from these boys. They have manners when they first meet someone,” you smiled petting his head and he gave you a disbelief glare. 

“Why do you say that?” Jin asks you and you smiled at him.

“He didn’t seem to speak to me when we first met till eventually I made him.”

“Yoongi is not a people person..” Hoseok says and I nodded.

“I can tell..”

~

You all got into the the van making Yoongi the driver and responsible for the rest of you all. You were sitting between Jimin and Hoseok. 

“Have you ever been camping?” Jimin asks looking at you and you looked up at him.

“No… this will actually be my first time.” you smiled.

“Well, if it makes you feel better. I’ll be here to protect you from whatever,” Jimin says causing your cheeks to turn a bright shade of pink and you began to hear laughter from the boys.

“Yah! You just met the poor girl and already trying to hit on her,” Namjoon says and Jimin begins to blush along with you.

“It’s okay tho,” you said reaching over for Jimin hand and you began to hear hollering behind you. 

“So childish,” yoongi hisses in annoyance and you rolled your eyes.

“Is he always this cranky?” you whisper to Hoseok and he just nods his head immediately.

“Figures..”

“You know Yoongi described you as annoying and irritating but you’re nothing like that at all..” Taehyung says and for some reason when you heard those words… you kind of felt upset..

He thinks your annoying?

“Tae,” you hear Yoongi hiss and you just looked down and then looked up smiling pretending you didn’t care.

“Good to know,” you giggled.

You were expecting Yoongi to maybe change his mind after spending some time with you… But you were wrong..

This camping trip with going to be a long trip…

Penny

Missing two weeks of school had been very, very stupid, Penny thought to herself. Although she had been excused for her absences and turned everything in on time, she felt out of the loop, a feeling she despised. Baz had been eyeing her warily during all their classes, something that struck her as odd. Baz didn’t really pay attention to anybody. Unless it was Simon of course.
Simon had been quiet most of the day, and she figured out why during lunch. She heard Simon’s carefree laughter come from behind her, which seemed odd considering Agatha was already sitting at their table. Simon didn’t really hang out with anybody besides the two of them.
Agatha, who had been panicking about lighting for the school fashion show, seemed to come back into focus for a second.
“Oh! Penny I forgot to fill you in.”
Penny cocked her head. “On what?”
At that moment Simon and Baz sat down at their lunch table, cracking up and hitting each other’s chests excitedly. Penny wondered for a moment whether it was possible that she had entered an alternative universe.
Penny knew her face must have looked shocked, but she made no move to control her expression. She wasn’t the kind of person to hide her emotions, not unless it was going to help someone she loved.
Baz eyed her warily. “Bunce.”
“Pitch. Might I ask why you’re here?”
Simon cleared his throat. “Were friends now.”
Penny raised her eyebrow. “Oh?”
Simon half smiled. “Yea, isn’t it great?”
Penny nodded slowly, her mind working a mile a minute.
“Hm. Was I gone for more than two weeks? Because I can’t imagine a reality in which you two could become best buds in that short a time.”
Agatha wrung her hands nervously.
“Hey, um Penny, are you mad?”
That confused her. “Huh? No not really. A little annoyed that nobody thought to text me about it.”
Everyone laughed at that, even a nervous looking Baz. Penny let the rest of them take control of the conversation while she watched them interact. At first Penny was sure that Baz would be flirting with Agatha, but that never really happened. It was clear that he had affection for her, but of the brotherly sort. If he was flirting with anyone though, it seemed like he was flirting with Simon. Penny was a smart girl, and knew it was stupid to discount the possibility. Baz liking guys? Just as likely as him liking Agatha. But Baz liking Simon? That baffled her.
It wasn’t as if Simon was a bad person, or an unattractive person. It was that Simon had been Baz’s target for bullying for years. Of course, Simon was almost as bad towards Baz if Penny were to be fair. Regardless there were so many reasons for Baz to hate Simon, what with his father defending Nicodemus Petty in court, Natasha Pitch’s killer.
As she thought that, Simon leaned into Baz, an innocent touch of the shoulders and Penny watched Baz…light up. It was like Baz had been plugged into an outlet, a Simon outlet. Then she knew. There was no way to explain the way Baz looked other than the obvious. He’s in love with Simon Penny thought but is Simon in love with him?
It was as if Baz had read her mind. In that instant his head snapped in her direction. She saw him reading her in the same way she had been reading him all lunch. He’s so much like me she thought in surprise. His cool grey eyes were cutting, acknowledging her realization.
“Penny we should get to class.”
Simon stood, all smiles, but she could read the tension underneath. Simon had noticed Baz and Penny’s silent conversation.
“Sure.” She chirped.
She half-expected Baz to come with them, that’s what she would of done. But he didn’t. Instead he offered to walk Agatha to class. Penny watched him, feeling both sympathy for him and protectiveness for Simon. She could read the desperation in Baz and she wanted to help him. But Simon was fragile in so many ways and Baz had the looks of a heart breaker.

Simon

“Simon, seriously, I thought you hated each other.”
Simon shrugged. “We sit next to each other in English. We started to talk. Turns out when we aren’t trying to beat the shit out of each other we get along pretty well.”
Penny shook her head in disbelief. “I just don’t see how it’s that simple. You were convinced he was the king of all assholes.”
Simon felt a surge of protectiveness.
“I was wrong okay?”
Penny stared at him. “So he’s not a sarcastic son of a bitch?”
Simon chuckled unwillingly. “Well yeah, I guess he is.”
“I just…don’t understand. And you know how hard that is for me to say.”
Simon sighed, trying to find a way to explain.
“It just felt…right. Like maybe all the anger and frustration was because we were fighting something inevitable. We just flow, there’s no effort or struggle. I don’t mean that it’s easy being his friend; it constantly feels like I say the wrong things or painful things. But I mean that it’s natural, like I can be myself and not be worried about it for once.”
Penny looked…amazed. Simon watched several emotions flitter across her face, finally settling on affection. She shook her head. Penny seemed to be weighing her words.
“That’s definitely…not hating him.”
Simon nodded. “I’m glad he’s my friend. I’ve never thought I could have more than one best friend.”
Penny harrumphed.
“You’ll always be the best friend.”
Penny studied him.
“True, but Simon…”
Simon watched her expectantly, knowing she was about to deliver some intricate epiphany. But something caught her attention behind him. Simon turned and saw Baz staring at them, hands rigid by his side. Simon turned back to look at Penny, whose brow was furrowed in an almost pained expression.
“Well. I’m glad the two of you are friends. You’re good for each other.”
Simon smiled and walked into the classroom. He hadn’t noticed how Penny paused at the doorway. How she stared back at Baz, trying to silently communicate her feelings. He hadn’t heard her soft words.
“So good for each other.”

Hey! I really genuinely love your art, very Disneyesque and aesthetically pleasing on the eye! I have a tumblr artblog too, rosebloom-arts, and I would really appreciate some advice on how to improve :) really nice to meet you! :D

Thank you very much! 

I would say one way to improve is to pay close attention to proportions :)

For example, an ideal proportion for a realistic human is about 8 heads high (imagine stacking the heads one on top of the other, upright). Cartoon and manga is different, since they exaggerate and simplify. usually they do 6-7 heads, which make them look like they have huge heads if you compare them to real human beings. But as long as the proportions are right, they look balanced.

This is kind of an old sketch I did, where I showed how I proportion my characters. I usually make them 5 ½ heads tall (1 head is indicated by the arrows). The second would measure to the elbows, the third to the crotch, the fourth to the top of the knees, fifth from the bottom of the knees to the ankles. The feet and knees combined would make about half a head.

The face have proportions too, but I’ll upload the sketch later… I’ll combine sketches of how I proportion bodies and faces so it’s easier to understand than just words!

My new year's resolutions would be to:

1. not give a fuck about anyone who doesn’t give a fuck about me
2. try to love myself more
3. focus more on studies
4. focus less on grades
5. pay more attention to my mental wellbeing
6. avoid anyone who makes me feel bad about myself
7. laugh more often
8. give my close friends and family top priority
9. not care about what people who don’t me think about me
10. appreciate life’s gifts more fully
11. spend more time with nature
12. pet dogs
13. drink more coffee

anonymous asked:

My store closes at 6 on Saturday and I close alone. More often than not I still have people in the store at 6 because no one pays attention to the hours. This week a man came in at 5:55 and actually said to me "I know you're about to close, I promise I'll be quick!" which was nice. Then a couple minutes later a mom with her two kids opened the door and then stopped and said "I just saw you close at 6, what time is it now?" (1/2)

(2/2) I said it was 5:57 but if they needed to grab something quick that was fine, and she said “Oh no, we just wanted to look around, we can come back another time.” and left. Then the customer who had come in before was done and out of the store at 5:59. I never see customers paying attention to the hours and then I get two in a row that do? I felt like I was living in some kind of alternate universe. It’s too bad that customers being so considerate is rare enough to be noteworthy

Brown Butter Pumpkin Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting

Yield: 15 cupcakes

The best pumpkin cupcakes you will ever eat!

ingredients:

For the Brown Butter Pumpkin Cupcakes:

¾ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 2/3 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)

1 cup packed light brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

For the Salted Caramel Frosting:

Salted Caramel Sauce:

2 cups granulated sugar

12 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into pieces

1 cup heavy cream, at room temperature

1 tablespoon fleur de sel or Maldon sea salt flakes

Frosting:

¾ cup butter, at room temperature

2 cups powdered sugar

½ cup salted caramel sauce

directions:

1. To make the brown butter pumpkin cupcakes: preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line muffin cups with paper liners and set aside.

2. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat and continue to cook, swirling occasionally, until butter turns golden brown, Skim foam from top, and remove from heat. Pour into a bowl to stop the cooking, leaving any burned sediment behind; let cool.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. In another bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, sugars, eggs, vanilla extract, and brown butter. Add the flour mixture, and whisk until just combined.

4. Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each three-quarters full. Bake, rotating tins halfway through, until a cake tester inserted in centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer pans to a wire cooling rack and cool completely before removing cupcakes.

5. While the cupcakes are cooling, make the salted caramel frosting. First, make the salted caramel sauce. Make sure you have all of the ingredients ready. Once you start the caramel sauce you have to pay close attention so you don’t burn it. To begin, heat the sugar over medium high-heat in the bottom of a heavy 2-3 quart saucepan. When the sugar starts to melt, start whisking the sugar. The sugar will clump up, but keep whisking. It will continue to melt. When the sugar is melted, stop whisking. You can swirl the pan to move the sugar around.

6. Continue cooking the sugar until it reaches a deep amber color. Make sure you watch the pan very closely. This is where it is easy to burn the caramel. You want the caramel to reach 350 degrees F. If you are new to making caramel, I suggest using a thermometer.

7. As soon as the sugar reaches the dark amber color, carefully add the butter. Whisk until butter is melted.

8. Remove the pan from the heat and carefully pour in the heavy cream. Whisk until cream is incorporated and caramel is smooth. Whisk in the fleur de sel or Maldon sea salt flakes.

9. Let the caramel sauce cool for about 10 minutes in the pan. Pour the caramel into a large mason jar and cool to room temperature.

10. To make the frosting: beat the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium-high speed until light in color and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low, add powdered sugar, and mix until completely incorporated. Turn off the mixer, and then add the salted caramel sauce. Beat frosting on low to combine, and then increase to medium-high and beat until airy and thoroughly mixed, about 2 minutes.

11. Frost the cooled pumpkin cupcakes with the salted caramel frosting and and drizzle cupcakes with extra salted caramel sauce, if desired.

Note-you can use store bought salted caramel sauce, but I highly recommend homemade salted caramel sauce. It is the best. The salted caramel recipe will make about 2 cups so you will have extra. Store the cupcakes in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
