sharing hopes and dreams

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible.

There lived four wizards of renown, whose name are still well-known: Bold Gryffindor from wild moor, Fair Ravenclaw from glen, Sweet Hufflepuff from valley broad, Shrewd Slytherin from fen. They share a wish, a hope, a dream, they hatched a daring plan, to educate young sorcerers, thus Hogwarts school began.

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.

Tumblr is, you’ve probably noticed, the dwelling place of so many beautiful souls: Broken ones, discouraged ones, beaten ones, fighting ones,  dreaming ones, hoping ones, sharing and caring ones, sweet ones. If you’re reading this, you’re probably one of them.
—  Sereno Sky, author of the hippie novel “Lonely Traveller”

“Eliminate the concept of division by class, skills, race, income, and nationality. We are all equals with a common pulse to survive. Every human requires food and water. Every human has a dream and desire to be happy. Every human responds to love, suffering and pain. Every human bleeds the same color and occupies the same world. Let us recognize that we are all part of each other. We are all human. We are all one.”

Life Update

Well, hi everyone! 

I don’t know, I just browse through Tumblr thinking if I should come back to this beautiful blog right now or later on. I finally decided to kind of make everyone aware that I’m still here. Why did i disappear all of a sudden? Good question. My parents found out I was gay, they called me to discuss everything and it didn’t went particularly okay. I was crying, anxiety cursing through my body, I was scared, because I didn’t expect any of it. They really shook me with doubt and fear. So I thought: I LOVE sharing pictures and content throughout this blog but I really need to focus on my personal life. So I didn’t want to commit to something I wasn’t feeling so cheered up about doing. I went through a lot of doubt. I questioned myself daily, every time I got a new challenge in my head and it became a burden. When I thought I had everything figured out my mom or dad gave me another lecture/talk about my sexual orientation. I went backwards AGAIN. Questions I asked myself daily were: Who am I really? God do you really feel this way towards me? Am I ever going to be happy with myself? Am I doing something wrong? And so much further questioning. I think giving myself this space and time helped me figure out more things about myself and what I want and wish. I love who I love not for some kind of rebel attitude. I DON’T love who I love because I want to be “cool” or follow a “trend”.  I am not confused nor mistaken. I love who I love because I follow my dear heart. Because I feel free when I do. I feel like painting the world in a multicolour beat. I feel like dancing through the stars. I love who I love because I fell in love with a boy with a heart of gold and a soul of warmth and dreams. I want to stand tall. To embrace who I am in this world so full of hatred and unfairness. But I know we can make a better world. Where our ideals can fit beautifully with respect and LOVE. Where we can live in harmony. I believe in you. I care about you. I love you. I don’t know the path God will take me. I just know he loves and cares about me, you, US. That he has a huge loving plan were we can all be included. Greetings, it feels good to write to you guys. To express. Maybe nobody cares. Or maybe no one will read this far. But I hope I can bring brightness and hope to the dark and cold corners. That we can all work together and spread LOVE. LOVE IS LOVE. LOVE WINS. ALWAYS.

  • Riley and Lucas usually fall asleep talking on the phone. They have the silliest conversations and the most deepest conversations. They usually range from talking about aliens with bunny ears to sharing their hopes and dreams.
  • Lucas gave Riley the whole DVD season collection of Red Planet Diaries as soon as it came out. They watch an episode or two every Friday, usually with Maya and Josh.
  • Riley has a huge obsession with a new show and she ships two of the characters hardcore. Lucas is always reminded of how those characters are very much like them and he is secretly rooting for them together just as much as Riley is.
  • Lucas finds out Riley loves daisies which remind him of her since symbolize innocence purity. One day with Maya’s help, he fills her locker with daisies and she squeals with delight. 
  • Riley and Lucas love to watch basketball together. Both get very intense about it, more so Riley but Lucas finds it adorable. It’s especially very interesting when the Knicks are playing against the Spurs, which are Lucas’ favorite team.
  • For her 17th birthday, Lucas got Riley a promise ring. Riley cried happily while Cory pretended to faint in the background. Maya had given Lucas a speech about how Lucas will one day be Riley’s best friend. 
  • Every time they ride the subway together, they always sit towards the back. They’re always remembered about how they first met and how lucky they were to meet each other. Neither knowing they’ll have met their soulmate on that fateful morning before middle school, the day they met changed everything.
  • Riley loves to fall asleep to the sound of Lucas’ heartbeat as she lays on his chest. Every time she snuggles onto his chest, his heart picks up and all she can smell is his woodsy scent. 
  • The first day of school in NY, Lucas came home with a smile on his face. As he helped his mom cook dinner he told her about the girl he met on the subway. Every time he spoke about Riley he always had a twinkle in his eyes and a big smile. Lucas would be too busy rambling about Riley and mess up whatever he was helping his mother cook. One day his mother teasingly told him that he wouldn’t be able to cook the Grandma Friar’s rhubarb pie for his future wife Riley, because he was always too busy talking about her to ever pay attention to the recipe whenever they baked it. Lucas had turned beet red and steadily wrote the recipe down and made sure to ramble less and help his momma more.
  • Lucas baked Grandma Friar’s rhubarb pie the first time Riley invited Lucas over for Thanksgiving in Philly. It was a big hit with the Matthews (even Cory reluctantly agreed it was delicious). All Lucas could think as he ate the pie with one hand and held Riley’s hand under the table with the other, was the comment his mother made him a long time ago. He liked the idea of calling Riley the future Mrs. Friar a lot. So years later he made it a reality.

since day one, he and I have been sharing everything together.
our cries, our fears, our hopes, our dreams, our happiness and our sadness.
he knows it, he knows it when I’m not okay, and when I am.
and I think, that’s what love is, when you love someone so deeply that your hearts will melt together and you will become a part of their own.

Watermelon Bubblegum and a Hint of Mint (Trolls Fanfic)

I finally finished! Did somebody say ANOTHER KISS? Did somebody say an actual kiss, perhaps even make out? Well, I surely hope so because that’s what you’re getting. And I confess that because of that I had trouble rating this lol, I ended up leaving it as “all audiences” but if you think I should level it up to “Teens” let me know lol

So, anyway. Here we go. 

AO3

Summary: Poppy and Branch are getting used to having talks under the moonlight in the highest spot of the Toll Tree before bed. They share secrets, fears, hopes, dreams, and perhaps, even a heartfelt, most needed kiss.


The best thing about living in the Troll Tree was the height. It was really tall. Poppy had also picked the highest pod to live, so she could watch over every single one of her friends, her people. As a bonus, she got to sneak out to one of the most elevated branches of the tree almost every night after a long day of singing, dancing, and new treaties of friendship with the Bergens with her… er, roommate.

After discovering there were too many Trolls for the current number of available pods on the Tree, they came to the conclusion they would have to share until they could grow as many pods as necessary. As Bergen Town also changed and was now a very colorful, environment-friendly city, King Gristle had told her, she only had to say the word and the Trolls could start to grow pods on every tree they wanted.

Poppy had thanked him, but decided that it would be better to keep the Trolls in one place where she could easily watch over them at first, at least until they acclimated to the city. The good thing was that the Troll Tree had enough room to grow enough pods, but it would take time. It would also be quicker to grow them all in one place too.

So, until all the pods were ready, some Trolls would have to share. They didn’t mind that much, but Poppy insisted that everyone got their own pod first before her, because what kind of ruler would she be if she was selfish? It definitely didn’t have anything to do with the fact that she was having the time of her life sharing a home with Branch.

…Here’s the thing: I was fine on my own, and so are you. But it can be hard when you feel ready for Happy Couplehood and you seem to have missed the train. As my friend Oliver Platt used to say to me about hopes and dreams I’d share with him: ‘It’s coming, just not on your time frame.’ I find this a helpful reminder in any number of ways: not only when you’re hoping to meet someone, but also when you’re waiting for a better job or for some relief during a bleak time. When Peter and I held hands that night all those years ago, I had no idea we’d end up shopping at REI together one day. It might have been nice if he could have turned to me and said: 'Look, tonight isn’t the time, but we’re going to leave here and learn a bunch of things that are going to make this work approximately five years from now - see you then!’ But life doesn’t often spell things out for you or give you what you want exactly when you want it; otherwise it wouldn’t be called life, it would be called a vending machine.

It’s hard to say exactly when it will happen, and it’s true that whatever you’re after may not drop down the moment you spend all your quarters. But someday soon a train is coming. In fact, it may already be on the way. You just don’t know it yet.

I NEED ARO ACE APLATONIC NEWT SCAMANDER AND I NEED IT NOW

Newt writes a lot of letters.

Newt’s mother worried about his lack of friends at school and at his Ministry job and now these solitary years wandering the earth in search of magical creatures. Newt writes her regularly, constantly reassuring her that he’s fine. (And he’s not alone. He has a suitcase full of company.)

Newt’s brother always wants to know about his latest accomplishments and if he’s found a partner yet. “You meet so many people in your travels, little brother. Surely one of them meets your exacting standards.” Newt always ignores these parts of the letters and replies with snippets of his newest discoveries and sketches of his beasts.

Albus Dumbledore receives letters from Newt again after the events in New York with Grindelwald, Credence Barebone, and the obscurus. Dumbledore doesn’t say much in return, just expresses his sincere thanks for sharing this information and his hope that Newt is living his dream.

Queenie Goldstein writes Newt pages and pages, keeping him up-to-date with everything that’s happened since he left New York and asking him a thousand questions in turn. Newt comes out as aroace and talks about being aplatonic in one of his letters back. He is surprised to find he is somewhat anxious about what the Goldstein sisters’ responses will be.

Jacob Kowalski is the addressee of many unsent letters from Newt. 

Tina Goldstein and Newt exchange letters occasionally. They have a hard time figuring out what to say after talking about the recent creatures Newt has studied and Tina’s new job. But, they always smile when another letter arrives, (especially Tina since Newt’s letters seem to arrive from every kind of bird in the world except for owls).

More often than not, apl aroace Newt’s correspondence with the people he meets on his travels becomes less frequent and eventually stops. It doesn’t bother him though. They usually end wishing each other well, and there are always new people to write to. However, Newt thinks he’ll make a special effort to keep writing to the Goldstein sisters.

May You Always
by Catherine Pulsifer

Faith, hope and charity
May we always have these
Not just at Christmas time
But all the year throughout.

We tend to have more faith
More hope and charity
During the season
But can we keep it always

May you always have
Something to hope for
Faith in something bigger than you
And, dreams that come true.

And may you always
Share with others
Your blessings as a result
Of your hopes, faith, and dreams. 

Because they see themselves as entitled. They are special because they decided to run for political office. They consider themselves the elite. The poor and middle-class continue to vote for these jackals in the hope that they also will share in the American Dream. It’s a dream and that’s all there is. When people finally awaken from this myth perpetrated by the rich, then maybe one day we will have a more equitable and just society with a high standard of living and not a banana republic, a society that Republicans and the Koch brothers consider ideal, a scheme generated to further enrich themselves. Pathological Greed and Narcissism, a mental illness. It’s the myth of the “American Dream” and the Puritan Work Ethic that causes people to vote against their economic interests. People think that if they work hard and play by the “rules”(rules the wealthy have made) they will be as wealthy as the wealthy “inheritors” and the lucky.
