Como seres humanos tenemos la costumbre de cometer errores, como el de culpar al amor cuando no funciona alguna relación amorosa..
“El amor no existe” dicen muchos después de terminar con alguien, El amor SI existe, lo viviste y sentiste junto a esa persona.
“El amor duele” claro que duele, si las cosas no dolieran todo sería fácil, no habría porque luchar, porque arriesgarse
“El amor hace daño” El amor no hace daño, el daño lo hace la persona, no trates de culpar al amor por lo que te hizo esa persona, cúlpala a ella, cúlpala a ella por haberte destrozado tanto el corazón, por haberte hecho llorar todas las noches, cúlpala a ella por todo el daño que te provoco, el miedo que te dejo al no volver a confiar en otra persona, cúlpala a ella por no poder enamorarte de alguien más, pero como somos seres humanos, torpes y ciegos preferimos culpar al amor que a esa persona, pues no queremos darnos cuenta que esa persona ya no nos quiere y decimos que el amor no va con nosotros, que no servimos para eso, que mejor solos, pero eso es seguir en el mismo error. El amor existe y cuando aprendas a darte cuenta que fue esa persona y no el amor, lo entenderás.

El primer amor no es la primera persona que te gustó, sino por la que hiciste cosas que nunca imaginaste y nunca olvidarás.

Cariño sé que no siempre tendremos días rosas
sé que a veces pelearemos y alguno de los dos terminara llorando
Estoy consiente de que habrán días malos
Pero cariño prometamos que aún cuando la tormenta este cerca no soltaras mi mano, no dejarás que esos problemas derriben todo lo que ya hemos construido juntos.
Cariño promete que aún cuando estemos al borde de la deriva siempre habrá una solución hacia cualquier situación.

Promete que aún cuando tengamos miedo nos tendremos el uno al otro.
Prometamos una vida juntos cariño.

this. is. wifflekeg.

ok so it’s getting nice out again in middle-america, which means that it’s wifflekeg season again.

what is wifflekeg, you ask?

  • wifflekeg is a game that combines the two best things america has to offer: baseball and beer.

how is wifflekeg played?

  • wifflekeg is played just like any game of wiffleball, with one extra addition - a keg on second base.
  • there are no gloves, and instead each player has one (1) red solo cup. every player must be in possession of their cup at all times, and when in the field, your cup must never be empty. when a player steps up to bat, they must still have their cup on them (some shove the cup in their pocket, personally i hold the cup with my teeth).
  • if the batter pops the ball up and a fielder catches it in their cup, the batter is out and they must finish the fielder’s cup. (if the fielder catches the ball with their hand and not their cup, the batter is still safe. we also play pegs and pitcher’s hand.)
  • once the runner gets to second base, they have to fill up their cup at the keg before advancing. the runner then must finish that cup before they get to home plate, or else the run will not count.

other random rules we had to add:

  • the Brandon rule: if you throw the bat, you have to do a kegstand
  • the Marissa rule (wassup) : if you foul off more than 4 pitches in any at-bat, you have to finish the pitcher’s cup

so basically it’s a bunch of people getting drunk and pretending to play baseball and I DARE YOU TO TELL ME THAT SMH DOES NOT DO THIS WHEN IT GETS NICE OUT.

We’ve been threatening to do this for a while, but the tumblr BU crew (@hakunimaatta, @heyfabbro, @oetterbox, and myself) finally put our heads together and made a BU hockey primer so that y’all can learn to love these losers as much as we do. 

Because there are four of us and we’re intense, we couldn’t fit the whole thing into 10 slides for tumblr, so there’s more below. Enjoy!

Pisoteado, adolorido, cansado, decepcionado, enojado mi triste corazón.

Me reprime por las noches que lo deje descansar, que ya no me ilusione tanto y que deje de confiar.
Que está cansado de sentirse tan bipolar, que no quiere más inestabilidad.
Que lo encierre con candado y que no lo deje escapar.
Que lo mate de un disparo mejor si me vuelvo a enamorar.

Mi corazón teme a que regreses de nuevo, tu monstruo sin sentimientos y me destruyas aún más.
Mi corazón tanto como yo tiene miedo de escucharte decir “te amo” una vez más.

20 de enero. Año 2

Hace dos años me rompí el corazón porque la vida es rara y a todos nos pasa que se nos juntan y juntan cosas como en una maleta hasta que no caben más. Y salen a presión.
Me rompí el corazón por alguien y por tanto. Me rompí porque la vida estaba un poco rota. Pero no destrozada del todo.
“Creo que mi soledad debería tener alas…” igual que Pizarnik, estaba dañada y ella fue mi primer post.
Hoy después de dos años sigo feliz. Han pasado cosas tristes pero muchas bellas. Escribo mucho, mucho y vivo despacio y respiro constante. Conocí al Señor de las hojas y supe que la poesía no debería tener nombre, con el sentimiento basta.
La poesía salva de tantas formas y a mí me ayudó y lo sigue haciendo… Tumblr es bonito pese a mucho…
Gracias a los que leen mis cursilerías desde hace dos años y a los que empezaron hace dos días, dos horas o dos minutos…
Uno debe restaurarse, “con humildad y silencio ”
Y este es mi lugar de restauración… A veces…

I’ve been seeing this stuff all over the damn place lately and was 100% skeptical about using it as a primer. But earlier this week I was in the men’s shaving aisle at Target, waiting for Devin to pick out razors and this stuff caught my eye. And so for $5.54 I figured, what have I got to lose?

I’ve been wearing it under my foundation for the past three days and oh. my. gosh. The hype is so real! I usually have a problem with my foundation looking really cakey in between my eyebrows, around my nose, and on my top lip and it usually wears off on the tip of my nose after a few hours. But when I use this, not only does it make my foundation lay better and look super smooth on the skin, even in my problem areas, but it keeps it on all. day. long. It smells a little manly at first but otherwise, 10/10 do recommend, pick this stuff up next time you see it!

A primer on the romance genre

Many of the people who post on romance novels on Tumblr are well-versed in common aspects of the community. But some are not. Here’s a rundown of common references. (Not alphabetical, grouped arbitrarily as I saw fit.)

Romance novel: A story that centers on a love story and culminates with an emotionally satisfying ending.

HEA: Happy ever after. The traditional ending for romance novels. Often means the characters are married or seriously committed by the end of the story.

HFN: Happy for now. An alternative version of the happy ending that has become more common in the modern genre. In this type of ending, the characters are shown to be happy and committed, but no promises are made about their future status.

Black moment: The point in the story when it appears that the problems between the characters cannot be overcome. The darkest and most hopeless point of their journey.

Modern genre: Current and recently published romance novels with modern themes and sensibilities. Commonly understood to be post-2000.

Old school: Can technically be understood to mean romances published before 2000, but more accurately means a romance novel that followed conventions commonly used prior to the modern genre. These are romance’s “problematic” books with alpha heroes, sexually naive heroines, scenes of dubious consent, sexual assault or rape, and an almost total lack of characters of color, except for often-stereotypical depictions of Native American heroes and sheikh heroes. Known for world-ranging adventures, feisty heroines, larger age differences, and Fabio. Often the starter books for many a romance reader and contains numerous classics of the genre.

Bodice ripper: A term that is either a pejorative for the genre or reclaimed by the romance community, depending on who you speak to. Often used by outsiders to describe all romance novels. Stems from scenes in old school romances where the hero would tear the clothing of the heroine. Generally understood in the community to refer to old school romance published in the ‘70s.

Fabio: Full name Fabio Lanzoni. A romance novel cover model who became popular in the 80s and 90s. He was on many covers and was known for his flowing blond hair. Went on to minor celebrity status. “Wrote” some of his own romance novels. Is still used as representative of the genre despite not being on a cover in decades. Once got hit in the face by a bird while on a roller coaster. The bird died. Reportedly a very nice person.

Alpha: Heroes with domineering qualities. These heroes are protective of the heroine and they may be possessive or jealous. The hero’s ways are redeemed, changed, or softened by the ending.

Alpha-hole: Alpha heroes who are not redeemed, or alpha heroes whose behavior is too over-the-top for the individual reader. Sometimes alphas are always alpha-holes for an individual reader.

Beta hero: A hero with a calm demeanor, respectful ways, or less status than an alpha. A big umbrella that basically encompasses any hero who is kind or has less status or is a social outcast in some manner. These heroes’ journeys are more often lateral in nature (he started out kind and compassionate and he remained kind and compassionate) or upward in nature (he was poor at the beginning but gained status by the end).

Theta hero: A lesser-known categorization for a subset of betas who have even less status or social standing. For example: a bumbling nerd who, at the beginning of his journey, cannot speak in front of the heroine.

Heroine: In stories with a heroine, she acts as the emotional center of the story. Many readers expect to identify with the heroine. Her journey is the reader’s journey.

H/H: Hero and heroine. Sometimes written as H/h. Can also mean hero/hero or heroine/heroine. Alternative option is MCs for main characters.

BDSM: Stands for bondage, discipline, submission/sadomasochism or variants. A common theme in erotic romance. Increased in visibility since the popularity of Fifty Shades of Gray.

Erotic romance: Romance novels with an abundance of explicit sex.

Romance: Most romances fall here. Will usually have a handful of explicit sex scenes. Contain less sex than erotic romance and the sex often begins later in the story than in erotic romance.

Clean romance: Romances were no sex or no explicit sex occurs.

Closed-door/open-door: A story with explicit sex is an open-door romance. A story were the sex occurs but is not described is a closed-door romance.

Inspirational romance: Romances where both characters are explicitly Christian or are converted to Christianity by the end of the book. AKA inspy or inspies. Generally clean romances. 

Amish romance: Romances where one or more characters are Amish. Can be historical, but usually contemporary. Usually also inspirationals and clean. AKA bonnet rippers, which may or may not be a pejorative depending on who you ask.

Muslim romance: Romances where one or more characters are Muslim. Significantly rarer than Christian romances, to the point of near-nonexistence outside digital or self pub.

Jewish romance: Romances where one or more characters are Jewish. Significantly rarer than Christian romances, to the point of near-nonexistence outside digital or self pub.

Mainstream romance: Romances published by traditional publishers or romances that dominate in terms of availability. Traditionally contains stories focused on one female character and one male character, both of whom are usually white. 

Traditionally published: AKA trad pub. Books published in print + ebook by legacy publishers, often based in New York. Considered the stodgiest and slowest publication option but also the most prestigious. Historically hostile to non-heterosexual and non-white stories.

Harlequin: The most well-known publisher of romance novels. Publisher of category romances, romance, and women’s fiction under a variety of imprints. Based in Canada, recently purchased by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, and a division of HarperCollins. “Harlequin” often used as a shorthand for romance novels by outsiders.

Mills & Boon: Another historically famous publisher of romance novels. Based in England. Owned by Harlequin. Where Americans would use Harlequin as a shorthand for romance, Europeans would say Mills & Boon.

Avon: A publisher of romance novels, also owned by HarperCollins. Many of the most popular romance novelists publish with Avon and many romance classics, including The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss and Sweet Savage Love by Rosemary Rogers, were published by Avon.

Self published: AKA self pub. Books published usually in digital form by authors without the support of a traditional publisher. Authors may also have their books printed. Known for low prices and prolific titles. Previously demeaned as “vanity publishing,” has gained in status in recent years. Less restrictive than traditional publication, which means authors of color, characters of color, and more types and styles of stories can find an eager audience.

Romance novelist: An author who focuses exclusively or almost exclusively on the romance genre.

Nora Roberts: The most famous romance novelist. Has written 200+ books. Also writes under the pseudonym J.D. Robb. 

Beverly Jenkins: A famous romance novelist who writes historical romances featuring black characters and characters of color. Known for deep research and longevity of success.

Danielle Steel: A famous and successful novelist often considered to be a romance novelist but most of her books cannot be categorized as romance novels as they do not focus on a love story or have happy endings.

Nicholas Sparks: A famous and successful novelist often considered to be a romance novelist but most of his books cannot be categorized as romance novels as they do not have happy endings. Largely hated by romance novelists and romance readers for multiple comments that are derogatory about the genre.

John Green: A famous and successful YA novelist often considered to be a romance novelist but most of his books cannot be categorized as romance novels as they do not have happy endings.

Category romance: Popularized by Harlequin and Mills & Boon, romances of usually less than 250 pages published under a category wherein each story fits certain guidelines or follows a general theme. Also called series romance.

Single-title: Industry term for a romance that is not published under a category imprint. Longer than category romance, usually 350-400 pages.

Series: A romance series takes place in a common world and follows a common theme. It is rare for a romance series to need to be read in chronological order, outside of paranormals. Often includes connecting characters that readers enjoy revisiting. 

Standalone: A romance that is not part of a series. Romance novelists and publishers will often tell readers that a book that is part of a series “can be read as a standalone.”

Serial romance: A single romance told in multiple books. More common in self pub than trad pub. See cliffhanger below.

Cliffhanger: A romance novel traditionally ends with an emotionally satisfying ending. Abrupt endings in romances that require the reader to read another book to reach the happy ending often earn blowback for novelists from readers. Because of this, authors will generally warn readers if the book contains a cliffhanger. More common in self pub than trad pub.

Romantic suspense: Subgenre of romance where the romance is surrounded by a suspenseful plot that heightens danger to the characters or establishes a mystery that must be solved by them.

Historical romance: Subgenre of romance set in the past. Often shortened to historicals.

Regency romance: Popular subset of historical romance set in the Regency era of England. Often set in London or the great houses of England. A commonly understood world usually correlated to a love of the works of Jane Austen. Often shortened to regencies.

Western romance: Subgenre of historical romance usually set in the American West, generally following the American Civil War. Can also be contemporary.

Contemporary romance: Romances set in contemporary times with modern themes. Often shortened to contemporaries.

Paranormal: Subgenre involving mythical or supernatural characters or human/part-human characters in a mythical or supernatural world. The romance genre’s version of fantasy. Sometimes shortened to PRN.

Science-fiction romance: Subgenre with love stories surrounded by science fiction.

M/m romance: Romance with male-identifying main characters. Incredibly popular subgenre. A m/m romance can exist in any subgenre.

F/f romance: Romance with female-identifying main characters. Much rarer than m/m romance. A f/f romance can exist in any subgenre.

Menage or poly romance: Romance with more than two characters. A poly romance can exist in any subgenre.

Tropes: Common themes or elements in romance novels. Romance readers often prefer certain tropes to others or will seek out stories with their preferred tropes. Some of the more popular or currently popular tropes:

  • Brother’s friend: The hero is the best friend of the heroine’s brother. Elements of “forbidden” love drive this trope.
  • Stepsiblings: A currently popular trend where the H/H are stepsiblings. Elements of “forbidden” love drive this trope.

Romancelandia: The romance community. An all-encompassing term for writers, editors, readers, and fans of the genre. 

$1 billion: Commonly cited size of annual romance sales, which is large enough to support and subsidize the rest of the publishing industry. Since this number does not account for much outside of mainstream romance, the amount is likely far higher.

Protegerte, protegernos
Las dos cosas son lo mismo, las dos suenan hermoso, sin embargo solo en una los dos están entregados completamente uno con el otro y en la otra solo una persona lo está.

#Despedida

Hace alrededor de unos 5 o 6 meses que entré al blog e hice una presentación; hoy que me voy del blog haré una despedida.
Espero que no se arme un drama… me iré del blog :)
No quiero que me extrañen y dudo que lo hagan.
Mi estadía aquí fue maravillosa :,) simplemente hermoso; recuerdo mi primer post… estaba tan nerviosa, pero luego ví sus corazoncitos y sus comentarios, entonces me sentí feliz, pues, nuestro contenido es para ustedes (,:
Sé que dije que subiría dibujos, explicaciones y más memes, así que perdónenme por ésas promesas vacías.
Antes de irme:

Weirdie se ira de tumblr(de éste blog y del personal); si hay alguien publicando cosas bajo el nickname de “Weirdie” no seré yo(ni nadie autorizado).

Los amo con mi corazón, pequeñas constelaciones.
Éste es mi último post. Quiero que sepan que me iré por voluntad y por deseo propio. Gracias a todos los usuarios que siempre le dieron reblog y corazoncito a nuestras publicaciones, los amo tanto… siempre que revisaba las notas sonreía al ver sus nombres allí :,)
La verdad… no quiero darles explicaciones de mi partida… simplemente me iré, éste es un adiós; no quería ser grosera e irme nada más. Y como ya dije: me iré porque así lo quiero.
Les digo que dejaré mis tumblrs, mi facebook y hasta quizá mi wattpad(ya no escribiré la novela).
Hay tantas cosas que quisiera decir, tantas personas que quisiera ayudar, tantos post que quiero hacer… pero si me quedara a hacerlos: jamás me iría; y éso no es una opción porque quiero irme y desaparecer.
Debo aclarar que ésto no es un “Hasta Luego”; es un “Hasta Nunca”.
Para los que siempre se preguntaron:
1. No me llamo «Weirdie».
2. Weirdie significa «chica rara» o «bicho raro» en aleman.
3. Se pronuncia “Wierdaih’” o “werdaih” simplemente.
Y listo, ya reescribí la Biblia en ésta publicación xd
Mis mejores deseos para ustedes. Que tengan una de las mejores navidades y feliz año nuevo.
Los amo y los amaré siempre.
Recuerden: “No busques la felicidad en el mismo lugar donde la perdiste”.
Ciao, pequeñas constelaciones
P.D: demonios >:( extrañaré llamarlos así
P.D2: vean siempre el lado positivo: ya no habrá post estúpidos :,)
P.D3: adiós, la papa pendeja se despide.
P.D4: Jefa o cualquier admi que lea ésto: MIRA LOS BORRADORES.
-Weirdie.
