Greetings internet, my name is Carla Solorzano and I am the Fall 2017 social media intern.
I recently graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a degree in English (and a minor in history, which I always forget about). No, I do not intend on becoming a teacher but if I do, please tell Past Carla she was a liar.
I hate when people ask what my hobbies are because I feel obligated to say something interesting like gardening or reading, when in reality I’m happiest when watching Cutthroat Kitchen and DMing memes with my friends.
Other things I enjoy include enthusiastically enjoying coffee, regressing into terrifying baby talk when seeing a chihuahua and consuming pop culture news like it’s junk food for my brain.
I hope this was a sufficient introduction and I (mostly) promise not to be as weird when I post here for NPR in the coming months. See you around!
Summary: ( College au) Your best friend invites you to a party, unfortunately, you can find her anywhere. Luckily you find a pretty cute guy to spend the night with. Words: 2010 Pairing: Peter Parker x Reader Warnings: A drunk asshole, people drinking and doing drugs. This is my entry to @wanderlustingandwandering writing challenge where my prompt was “Do you want me to leave?“
You look around the party cursing yourself, you feel so out of place right now. A few days ago your best friend invited you to a party in one of her friend’s house, you said yes in heartbeat, you felt like you need it to explore more of the college life and there is any better way to do this with a party full of strangers, right?
You don’t have anything against parties, actually, you love them. The loud music, people dancing like the world was going to end and the idea that anything could happen. You could wake up in a stranger’s bed or in someone bathtub.
But in this party, you feel like a fish out of water. The only person that you knew it is your friend and she is nowhere to be found. You grab a bottle of beer out of the fridge, feeling that people are watching you “Hello there, princess.”
I love raz already, do you have some trivia about him ?
Oh!!! Raz is a peculiar OC of mine! He’s… very curious about everything! He really enjoys reading books, surfing the web, travelling, learning the latest pop culture, and loves junk food. He’s pretty to himself and very blunt, sometimes coming off as intimidating, but he’s also very open-minded since he loves to learn. Sometimes he’ll answer things directly, other times he dodges the question. He has a hard time grasping the concept of emotions and memes. If you show him a meme, he won’t understand at all.
Imogen Heap | Have You Got It In You? | Speak for Yourself
Been looking through older bands I used to listen to in the past. Ended up finding this song, one I never listened to from this singer. I think it’s a new fav, to be honest.
Listening to this and reading the lyrics though… Something about this song gives me a Craig feeling. Let me see if I can explain it.
Craig is a character that may be easy to see as being flat. He’s built up to be the stereotypical jock-type character in Dream Daddy; he focuses on staying fit and healthy, and most of his dates revolve around this fact in some way or another.
However, you break down his character more, and you see a guy that may seem to be a pinnacle of health, but in actuality seems to be facing a very real chance of having a stroke from the sheer amount of stress he’s constantly in. He focuses so much of his time to be fit, while also being a very active part of his children’s lives, all while balancing his business involving Sports Gear.
From the way his character is shown, it seems like it’s been a very long time since Craig actually had a chance to relax. Perhaps even the last time being before Ashley was pregnant with their twins, as Craig mentions his change in lifestyle choices came about with their birth.
It’s admirable that Craig went from being a guy that seemed incapable of taking care of even himself back in the day, as MC puts it, to a guy that seems more than ready to take on any responsibility that comes his way. But even with his change of lifestyle, he’s still neglecting himself something awful; to the point it seems like a miracle he hasn’t run into any major health issues with how much he has on his plate.
It’s funny; if you experience the gym scene with Craig, just before your first meeting with Hugo, Craig even tells you not to push yourself too much after you end up flying off the treadmill. That it’s not healthy to try and keep up with other’s speed if you aren’t ready to match it.
And yet, he’s doing just that. He’s pushing himself beyond his limit. And if the MC never came back into his life like he did, there’s the very real chance he would’ve learned this far too late.
Because it’s with the MC’s help that he’s able to see that, while he looks to be the picture of health now, his new habits were just as destructive to his well-being like the old ones were in the past.
So, what does this character analysis have to do with how I think the song connects to Craig? Well, it’s all up to interpretation and connections.
It takes a lot, after all. But safety first, don’t push.
I’ll let you guys read the lyrics here below the cut to see if you can come with your own conclusions, or even see anything that I may have missed. If not, well, hope you like this song and character analysis coupled with it. Maybe the song helps build up some ambiance for this, at least, haha!
