sarcastic pictures

Post hike, Truffle likes to lie down while drinking.

Snake avoidance training is… Going.  Traditionally, it’s done with shock or vibrational collars and a dog is given a shock/vibration every time they attempt to approach a snake.  Since I don’t have experience in aversive techniques, I didn’t feel comfortable doing this.

instead, keeping in line with Truffle’s hopeful future as a service dog, I’ve been teaching him to ALERT me every time he thinks there’s a snake around.  This achieves two goals: it encourages him to move away from the snake AND let’s me know there’s one around.

Today he walked right by a young gopher snake without noticing it despite the noodle doing  a very spirited and noisy rattler impression.

good job, puppy.

summary; after you leave your friends at an amusement park due to your fear of heights, you end up meeting a stranger who takes your mind off your fears.

( brief mention of a panic attack due to fear of heights )


After a stressful week of college full with exams, studying, lectures and long nights with lots of caffeine, you and your friends decide that you guys deserved a break.

Deciding that you needed to escape the hardships of being young adults your best friend Jae planned a day at the amusement park. Your group of friends jumped at the opportunity to be kids again but you on the other hand weren’t so excited. You had a fear of heights and you knew that the high roller coasters were not going to end in much fun.

It was a hot summers day so you wore a simple pair of denim shorts and a tank top. You completed your outfit with a pair of worn down white converse. You were huge into photography so your camera was hung around your neck. The only thing you were looking forward to today was the amazing shots you would get at the amusement park as it was located on a pier.

The car journey to the amusement park was filled with music and laughter. Once you arrived and saw how high up the rides were, your palms began to sweat. Jae knew about your fear of heights but Jae has always been one to live in the moment and his excitement made him forget about your fear. You felt all alone going into the park even though you were surrounded by your best friends.

You guys walked around looking for the perfect first ride. While you looked around you tried to find a ride you could go on without having a panic attack. So far all you saw was the tea cups and if you suggested them your friends would only think you were joking when you really weren’t. Although, you took a note that the Ferris wheel didn’t seem to be as high up as other rides.

“Hey guys! Let’s go on this one,” Youngk (a close friend of yours since you met at one of Jae’s infamous parties) exclaimed. You looked up and saw that he was pointing at what looked like a ride in the clouds. You felt faint even looking at it. The rest of the group jumped with glee and shared excited words as they made their way to the queue. You looked down at your camera and an idea popped up.

“Hey guys, if you don’t mind I’m going to go on the Ferris wheel to take some shots,” you announced holding up your camera. You loved photography but you believed that you could take just as good shots on the ground then up high so in reality you were just going to sit on a bench somewhere and take photos.

“Do you want me to go with you?” Jae reluctantly asked. You knew by his face that he didn’t want to go on the boring Ferris wheel with you.

“No it’s fine. I’ll be more focused without you and it will result in better photos,” you reassured him.

“Okay, but I want to see the pictures after. I’m sure the view of the ocean is beautiful from the Ferris wheel.” No. No. No. Now you felt like you had to go up to take pictures. You sarcastically thanked Jae for being interested in photography for the first time in your head as you walked towards the line for the Ferris wheel.

As you waited in line you tried to settle your nerves. How were you supposed to take photos with a shaky hand. You entered the carriage alone and sat down in the middle tying to avoid looking out the windows. You thought you would be alone but an awkward looking boy entered the carriage.

“Sorry all the others were full,” he said as he entered. Your nerves had caused your mouth to go dry so you didn’t trust your voice to work. You nodded and offered a friendly smile in his direction.

The ride up was silent. You were actually enjoying the views and got some good photos despite your shaky hands. What you were unaware of was that the boy sitting across from you was not admiring the ocean like you were. He was admiring the beautiful girl in front of him. He couldn’t help put notice that you seemed a bit unsettled. Being shy he was good at observing people and came to the conclusion that the girl had a fear of heights.

You were busy taking photos when you suddenly felt the carriage jolt and come to a sudden halt. You looked around and noticed that the tide had stopped moving and due to your unfortunate luck you were stuck at the very top of the Ferris wheel.

Your breath became shaky and you found it hard to breath. You didn’t want to scare the stranger so you tried to calm your breathing but it didn’t help. You felt trapped and being up really high was not helping. You shakily slid of your seat and sat on the floor as it was that tiny bit closer to the ground. You learnt from your mother who was a nurse that it helped calm your breathing if you placed your head between your knees. You breathed in and out repeatedly but it didn’t help which made you panic even more.

“Hey…em… it’s going to be okay we’ll be out in no time,” the stranger spoke with a deep voice that was almost soothing. You felt movement and then a body was sat down next to you. “ I’m Dowoon by the way.”

“I'm…Y/N,” you croaked out in a whisper.

“Hi Y/N. I know this might seem a bit forward, believe me I’m shy and I wouldn’t normally do this but if you hold my hand it might help,” Dowoon offered. You lifted your head up and made eye contact with the boy next to you. You lost your breath not because of the heights but because of how handsome the boy in front of you was. Your gaze drifted down to his hand that was being offered to you. You took his hand and held on tightly to it. The warmth from his hand made your stomach flutter.

“So… what are you doing up here alone,” Dowoon asked looking down at you. You knew he was only trying to distract you and you couldn’t help but smile because it was working.
“Well it’s a long story,” you replied.
“We’ve got time.”

-

You learnt a lot about Dowoon and he learnt a lot about you. He was easy to talk to and you felt as if you knew him for years. By the time the Ferris wheel began to work again, you were no longer just holding his hand. Your hands were still connected but your back was now pressed against his chest and your head was on his shoulder. You looked up at him and he gazed down at you.

You both finally got off the Ferris wheel with your fingers still linked together. You could feel the tension building since you both were reluctant to say goodbye. You were still a bit shook up and didn’t want to return to your friends or leave his presence.

“Em… do you want to go check out the stalls for any good games with me?” Dowoon asked nervously. Your heart skipped a beat at his offer.

“Yes I’d love to! My friends didn’t want to spend their time at the stalls and just wanted to go on the rides… with heights,” you admitted.

“I just want you to feel safe,” Dowoon said smiling down at you. “Also I can show off my amazing ring throwing skills.”

-

Your night was filled with lots of fun and you even forgot that you came with friends until Jae came frantically running towards you saying you had to leave and something about sassing a member of staff from the amusement park. You got Dowoon’s number and continued to meet with him every week. You’ve never been happier than in the moments you shared with Dowoon.

Kind of wishing she had gone the opposite route with this album- instead of a spiteful "good job, you killed part of me" persona, I think it would have been a cooler/ healthier message for her to come back with a vibe like the world's harshness can't take her humanity and softness and vulnerability. I can understand why from a marketing perspective she wouldn't do that, but I hope this is more persona than genuine emotional state. Letting someone take/"kill" part of your identity isn't healthy

I very much get this perspective and I’m sure in light of Kesha’s “Praying” going that route would have been amazing to hear from Taylor. 

I think much like with “Blank Space” though, you need to have a sense of humour to know that there’s a healthy dose of tongue in cheek sarcasm going on here. Listen to her voice when she says that line. “Oh? She’s dead.” Like picture the sarcastic eyeroll she’s probably got going on as she says that. It’s a clear reference to the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty tag. 

Like: “Oh. You’re trying to talk to me now after all this time? When it’s convenient for you to drop my name? Hm. That’s … Funny. Well. I’m actually dead, so … Talk to you never. Cool? Cool.” 

Kaisoo Analysis | Kaisoo Origins

I was inspired to do this post after I researched for something online. I was honestly curious about how people started shipping Kaisoo, since I never saw a specific moment that made people ship them together. Because, everything has a start, right? So, giving this thought a shot, I started to research…

And I found this on fykaisoo (apparently, someone had the same doubt as me!):

I put the link of the answer above, but if you’re lazy to click at it or you don’t know what predebut they talked about, I’ll put them here because I’m a masochist and I love Kaisoo too much to let it go.  

I really don’t know why people started shipping Kaisoo romantically after these pictures came out… sarcastic laugh

This picture only confirms what Jongin said on EXO Second Box DVD about him and Kyungsoo going to take a coffee and hang out together.

Full gifset here.

The iconic Kaisoo pose again (Kyungsoo with his cheek close to Jongin’s). 

 No comment needed on this one, honestly.

Fykaisoo’s post has another pictures/gifs that show some moments of them in MAMA Era.

Some moments of Kaisoo being clingy with each other. Not only Jongin being clingy with Kyungsoo, but the other way around, as well. What is super important, if you consider Kyungsoo’s personality as someone who doesn’t like people touching him.

This moment is very important to me because it was after Jongin suffered an injury. You can see Kyungsoo carrying him and his face looks so determined… I don’t know how to explain this, I just think that’s very deep.

This is another moment I appreciate tenderly. Some members of EXO-K are talking to the camera, but Jongin and Kyungsoo are missing. It’s almost imperceptible, but, if you look closely, you can see Kyungsoo having his throat massaged by Jongin. When Kyungsoo spots the camera, he reacts with surprise and tries to hide. Not very successful, I would say.

Everything I just saw made me take some conclusions that I wanted to share here that maybe will sound obvious for a lot of people:

  1. Kaisoo was always reaaaaally close, since predebut days no shit, Sherlock;
  2. They didn’t have a start point, like one moment in front of the cameras, in a showcase or concert. They just had this awesome relationship since the beginning and, when people realised this, some of them started to ship them together;
  3. Right after their debut, Kyungsoo and Jongin still touched each other a lot in public places, but not because they were forced to (I think). For me, it was a habit, that they kept doing it lightly for a time;
  4. They were always there with each other, taking care of each other and making sure that the other was alright. I put some other moments I found online to illustrate this:

Kyungsoo opening the water bottle and giving it to Jongin instead of drinking it first. 

I didn’t find the video of this moment, but it’s basically Jongin with a hot pack on his hand. Sehun wanted it because it was pretty cold. Jongin wanted to share his hot pack with Kyungsoo instead, but he refused. He was feeling cold as well, but he preferred to see Jongin with the hot pack instead of taking it from him! 

I just stay mad when some people say that Kaisoo is planned by SM or they fake their friendship or whatever. I mean, those people don’t know them at all! I know and agree that some fans exaggerate a lot about some of their moments, but it’s a normal thing to do. A lot of shippers of other couples do the same thing and, believe me, it’s normal. But say that everything Kaisoo does is fake? 

Their interactions changed a lot through the years, it’s a fact. But that’s why Do Kyungsoo and Kim Jongin matured as human beings and they’re a lot busier than they used to be. It doesn’t mean that they don’t like each other anymore or that they’re not together anymore (as friends, or lovers, whatever you decide to call them).

I swear that I tried to imagine just for fun they going to take a coffee and take selcas there because SM obliged them to and this idea is one of the most ridiculous things I ever thought in my life.

Kaisoo has this huge quantity of shippers because the sincere way they build their relationship every day, with every interaction. Shipping them as brothers, best friends or even lovers don’t change the fact that they really appreciate each other’s company and are really fond of each other.

And honestly, knowing this in my heart, even if they don’t date, makes me really proud to be a Kaisoo shipper.

BONUS FACT:

Credits here. If even a Baekhyun’s friend admitted that Jongin and Kyungsoo were close, who am I to say otherwise, right? Or maybe he was paid for SM to say that, because Kaisoo makes part of “SM’s fake couples”! That’s something we’ll never know.
