so we're stuck with this for now

advice for the signs
  • aries: you're full of ideas and they're always amazing! you are so much smarter than you give yourself credit for, even though you try to appear like you're a bit of a daredevil, you don't always like to come too far out of your cozy little comfort zone. but I promise, if you come out a bit more you can experience so many exciting things, and your abilities will make you shine like a star in the night sky.
  • taurus: not only are you are a badass, you're also super cool. if there are any haters its only because they want to be like you - really though. you just have an aura about you that pulls people in and once they get to know you, they don't ever want to get away. people want to overindulge in you, and if that wears you out then take a break and don't feel bad about it, your friends know you'll come back at the end of the day.
  • gemini: you're not a two-faced backstabbing bitch, you are a beautiful person who struggles with having to listen to an angel and a devil on your shoulders all day, which I can only imagine is super tough but you've done an incredible job to even come all this way and you should be so proud of yourself, I know I am. and lets take a moment to appreciate how you can walk into a room and suddenly be everyone's best friend with your natural charm and easy-going nature. you could take a bullet in the chest and your smile won't even falter. you're so determined to get what you want and you're so passionate and just everything you do is admirable. keep going, you rock this world.
  • cancer: if we're being real here, you don't actually cry *that* much. this is what it is - you have so many emotions swirling inside of you and they are like a beautiful storm of bright lights. and you should continue to let that out and share that beauty with everyone! but even with all that, you can be pretty hardcore and you are so strong, inside that whirlpool is a fire than burns bright, you should show people your intense passions as well as your caring side.
  • leo: you are amazing, and everyone around you knows it. if you're being too hard on yourself, lighten up a little because so far you've done everything right. everything happens for a reason, and if you feel guilty or sad about something just remember that your experiences have shaped who you are today - a beautiful, wonderful, magical creature with sparkling eyes, a loving soul and fabulous hair.
  • virgo: you work so hard to be on top of the game and I know how stressful that can be, but trust me when I'm saying that if you're doing the best you can, please don't push yourself any further. I'm sure you know what it feels like to get 3 hours sleep only to just scrape everything in on time, but you're doing just fine and please remember to reach out to your friends and loved ones and talk about how youre feeling. honestly, letting out any negativity makes you feel so, so much better, and you deserve the best.
  • libra: it's not that you're indecisive, you just like to weigh out all the pros and cons of a situation before you go into something - which is such a good idea, and I admire you for that. I bet you wish you had a crystal ball and could see the future to know how your decisions will turn out, huh? but the reality is that you should stop worrying about about the future and live in the moment. if you're not focusing on the present, you won't get to where you want to be in the future, and we definitely don't want to see you somewhere where your talents aren't being showcased.
  • scorpio: your personality is just so magnetic and you're so hypnotic, so many people absolutely adore you and would do anything for you - but sometimes they might not be 100% certain that the feelings are mutual. now, I know you love your friends and family so, so much with a fiercely strong love, but would it kill you to tell people that you love them and how you're feeling sometimes? everyone is here to help you and guide you on your journey to reaching the stars, but you can't build your rocket ship without the help of others.
  • sagittarius: you are incredible and so smart, it actually makes people stop in their tracks when you open your mouth and spout some beautiful, philosophical words of wisdom. or even just opening your mouth to say anything. everything about you is great but I'm not sure you appreciate yourself as much as you should. all the friends you have who love you should be an indication of how great you are. if you don't learn to love yourself, you might not be able to see through and out of your own little bubble and actually notice how much people care about you. because they care so, so much. don't you ever doubt that.
  • capricorn: your motto is work hard and don't take shortcuts, which is amazing and everyone admires you for that. it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be you, and even if nobody mentions it, everyone is impressed. you're gonna go far, kid. but know that even if you're stuck in a rut right now you just need to jump a little higher and climb out. if you're stressed, talk to someone you trust and just open up and tell them what youre feeling. help them help you, and everything will be okay.
  • aquarius: we're not emotionless, we have a lot of feelings and we just choose not to express them because we're scared of people being overwhelmed by us, and we like to trust someone 100% before we open up. and there is nothing wrong with that. you're so good at listening to people's problems/how they feel and your advice is 10/10, but if you don't take time to talk to people about how you're feeling, you bottle everything up and one day it'll get so full that the lid will burst - and I know you're afraid of letting out all your feelings in one go, I definitely am. the only way around that is to let it out, bit by bit, slowly and over the years, to maintain your composure and sanity. and nobody will see you any different or judge you if you open up to them.
  • pisces: you're passionate, your creativity is out of this world, you're so good at helping people and you don't have a selfish bone in your body. you're always so up for helping people, and that is amazing! you're compassionate like no other, and your ideas are off-the-charts crazy cool. and you're not weak! you are perfectly capable of putting up your barriers, you just like to trust people enough to keep them down a lot of the time. and you're definitely not weak either, you've probably lived through some heartbreaking experiences, and you're still able to walk around with your head up and your heart open. now thats real strength.

anonymous asked:

Remember back when this blog was mostly just us giving the egos gifts and you saying their reactions, with a few little stories thrown in here and there? Maybe a few questions asked now and then? It's amazing for me at least to see all of these characters so fleshed out and well rounded, and now we're kind of working together to build these stories off of each other and keep it all in one single storyline, so to speak. Just, this blog is amazing :)

I’m really happy with how the blog has changed over time. I feel so much more confident in my interpretations of the characters, and I’m a lot more confident in what I post now. But I also really appreciate all of my cutie pies who have been here since the beginning and who have stuck around even when the blog has changed so much.

You guys are the best!

K but consider this: Link and Zelda being neighbors in an apartment

and I was trying to decide whether next-door neighboors or floor-above neighbors would be funnier but I figured that out quick

  • So Link lives in apartment 426 and Zelda moves into 326. She and Malon are so jazzed because it’s their first place ever, they’re both fresh out of college, and they have good entry level jobs
  • now i understand that that right there is an unrealistic fantasy but BEAR WITH ME
  • anyhow Zelda is so excited to start at work and she’s lying in her room trying to go to sleep and all she hears is BANGING on her ceiling
  • it’s 12:30 on a Tuesday night. what the fuck are those people doing??
  • but she is a civil person who is not grumpy AT ALL and just puts headphones in and goes to sleep
  • But as it turns out, this happens EVERY NIGHT
  • A couple days later she is getting her mail and notices a guy with a great butt like hot damn unlocking the 426 box so she says hi, gets his name, and as passive aggressively as possible tells him to keep it the fuck down
  • anyways that night as she’s going to bed she goes to pull her curtain closed and there, dangling by a string in front of her window, is a note that says “Sorry Princess ;)” 
  • And she doesn’t even have time to consider what he’s sorry for before she hears the music start to BLARE. 
  • So basically Zelda takes this as a declaration of war and begins plotting how she, too, can make his life miserable. Like a civil person who is not grumpy at all.
  • He has it easier because all he has to do is jump up and down but she is much more creative
  • Next time he wakes her up with the thumping she starts vacuuming her ceiling at 2 in the morning
  • Realizing what she’s doing, he gets competitive and the next night, he invites all of his friends out onto his balcony one night for drunk karaoke
  • she attaches a little speaker to his cat’s collar that’s connected to her phone and once he gets inside she blares never gonna give you up
  • He buys two retro DDR mats and him and Sheik start playing every night before bed
  • She climbs up onto the fire escape to open his window (idiot leaves it unlocked) and attaches a blowhorn to the outside so when he closes it he nearly goes flying 
  • Both of them are exhausted 100% of the time but spite and competitiveness keep them going.
  • One day Zelda catches Link trying to get her back and she nearly pushes him off the fire escape
  • They’re hopelessly attracted to each other tbh but they have literally NO contact besides these back and forth pranks so none of them give it up
  • Malon and Sheik don’t really know what’s going on but it starts keeping THEM awake and they get together and start figuring out how to broker peace
  • Malon drags Zelda to their apartment for dinner one night and while Zelda and Link start bickering at the table Sheik and Malon slip out 
  • Zelda doesn’t even notice that they’re gone and tries to storm back up to the room but Link’s front door won’t budge
  • (Sheik and Malon have barricaded the door from the outside with the help of one meddling front attendant) 
  • THEY’RE STUCK IN THE APARTMENT TOGETHER LMAO
  • They try the fire escape but Malon is smarter than that and has that locked too
  • Anyway now Link and Zelda are forced to spend the night together 
  • And now they have all this free time because they don’t have to waste time pranking each other
  • And Link is like….”So……do you wanna play ddr?”

Even if he’s the one that started it, from now on he’s banning the very mention of anything space-related around the kid but you know everyone’s gonna do it and then run off just to mess with him.

You’re in for it now Wheats.

this one’s for you @mango-sass

(This is likely to get me into even more trouble, but whatever - the new Buckleming episode airs this week, so I’m guessing we’ll have worse problems by Friday.) 

So, my dash seems to be split between pro-Mary and anti-Mary people, and the debate is getting pretty intense and occasionally awful. And I just wanted to say that yes, it’s probably true we hold women (and especially mothers) to different standards of behaviour, and I’m sure there are some overt or subconscious sexist components in our dislike, or even outrage, in some cases, of her actions this past week, but also - to me, the problem is that Mary started out in a good place and is now going downwards, if that makes sense. Like, Crowley - Crowley is fascinating in and of himself, but one big reason I feel so sympathetic towards him right now is because he started out as a selfish, even cruel villain and he’s experiencing an upward arc towards understanding and helping other people. And this is a popular trope and all, but it’s popular for a reason: because it gives us a sense of satisfaction to see someone become a better person.

(Also because two thirds of Western culture are basically Christianity, which is the poster boy of the Redemption Arc, so we’re probably pre-programmed to like this from birth, but whatever. It still makes for a good story)

Now, Mary - Mary started in the best possible place, that of the Innocent Murder Victim who, on top of everything else, was a Mother and Beautiful and Trying to Save Her Baby Boy - Jesus, there’s not much that will give you more points than all that. So it’s not surprising, really, that her arc must be downward, because how the hell would have she been able to go higher that actual martyrdom? So her having trouble connecting with her kids, her being secretive and skulking about and making deals with unsavoury characters - of course it’s nothing different or worse from what every single person on Supernatural has done for the past twelve seasons - the problem is not in the actions themselves, but in where they are in her character’s arc. That’s why, I think, we perceive her behaviour as less forgivable - not (only) sexism.

As pretty much everyone knows by now, there’s a beast of a hurricane bearing down on Florida. I’ve lived here for most of my 41 years, been through more hurricanes than I’ve ever cared to, but this one scares me.

For anyone who’s stuck here in Florida like we are, hurry up and finish your emergency preparations if you haven’t already. There is no place in Florida that this thing isn’t going to touch and it’s going to be bad. There’s just no way around it. Do what you have to in order to keep yourself, your family, and your animals safe. Once the storm is over, check in as soon as you possibly can, although there may be a bit of a wait for that. Unfortunately there’s no way of knowing how long we’re all going to be without power.

Stay safe, everyone. Our thoughts are with you.

Hamilton Characters as High School Musical Lyrics
  • Lin-Manuel writing Hamilton, probably: The "nerd" table in "Stick to the Status Quo" where they're all reading American History textbooks and Martha announces that "hip hop is my passion".
  • Hamilton: "Do the bop bop bop to the top don't ever stop."
  • Burr: "NO! NO! NO! NO! Stick to the status quo! If you wanna be cool follow one simple rule don't mess with the quo no no- stick to the status quo."
  • Laurens: *looking at Hamilton* "He makes this feel so right- should I go for it? Better shake this. Yikes."
  • Lafayette: "Crème brûlée!"
  • Hercules Mulligan: "Gotta grab it and go."
  • Washington: "Together, together, c'mon let's do this right. We're all here and speaking out in ONE. VOICE. We're gonna rock the house (and the Senate). The parties are on, now everybody make some noise come on let's scream and shout. We've arrived because we've stuck TOGETHER."
  • Eliza Act One: "And now looking in your eyes I feel in my heart, oh, the start of something new."
  • Angelica: "It's funny when you find yourself looking from the outside. I'm standing here but all I want is to be over there. [...] Cause now I have to pretend that I don't really care."
  • And Peggy: "Is that even legal?"
  • America to King George: "Rising till it lifts us up so everyone can see- we're breaking free!"
  • King George to America: "No, no, no, no! Stick to the stuff you know! It is better by far to leave things as they are don't mess with the flow no no- stick to the status quo."
  • Jefferson: "This is not what I want. This is not what I planned. And I just gotta say I do not understand. Something is really-" *shoves mic in Madison's face*
  • Madison: Something's not right?
  • Jefferson: REALLY wrong- and we've gotta get things back where they belong. We can do it!"
  • Maria: "Not a want, but a need."
  • Eliza Act Two: "I swore I knew the melody that I heard you singing. And when you smiled it made me feel like I could sing along. But then you went and changed the words, now my heart is empty. I'm only left with used-to-be's, and once upon a song."
  • Phillip: "Gotta bump the competition, blow them all away"

anonymous asked:

Hey, I heard about the horrible hurricane stuff going on - we don't really have them where I'm from so it sounds scary as heck. ;-; Are you holding up okay?

Yeah! as of now my lights are still on and the internet’s still running, but downstairs it was flooded a ton last night

This is how it looked about 5 hours ago. It was pretty bad for everyone who lived downstairs, and alot of them had to evacuate to higher ground due to there being like a few feet of water in each apartment. It seemed pretty scary, too. Only plus side was that the wind was calm haha

To the Future Berklee Kids:
  • CONGRATULATIONS to all the new kids that just got accepted into Berklee!
  • You're in for a roller-coaster ride, let me tell you. Trust me when I say that you're going to have an amazing time here and you'll learn a hell of a lot from everyone around you, just as long as you're willing to.
  • What you get from being at Berklee is exactly what you're willing to take from this place. Take advantage of all the resources, because there's a lot more to this school than meets the eye! Talk to your teachers and get to know them; most of them have done incredible things in the music industry that you wouldn't even know about unless you asked.
  • At Berklee we're surrounded by great musicians that are constantly improving, so you can easily to get discouraged just by simply passing by the practice rooms. But let that INSPIRE you instead of discourage you. Never get stuck into the rut of thinking,"Oh god, some people that go here are so bad, how did they even get in?" Just focus on yourself and how you can improve your own musicianship when you're here. As a freshman, I met quite a few people that seemed like they were decent musicians. Now almost three years later, all of us are almost unrecognizable; if you're willing to put in the work and effort, you'll improve so much while you're here.
  • But most of all, don't ever forget your musical roots. Yes, Berklee is a jazz based school. And being a pop/r&b/soul musician myself, it was very difficult for me to wrap my head around the whole "jazz" thing. But now, I just let it improve my skills. The more you know about music, just means that you have a bigger pot to draw from when you're writing your own stuff : ) (I just tend to add some jazz chords here and there to make things sound a little more interesting every once in a while. :P)
  • So... meet some of your future best friends, collaborate with some brilliant musicians, learn from your mistakes, laugh a lot, and throughout all of it, always keep an open mind : ) You never know what can happen!
  • We're so proud of all of you for taking this step to come to Berklee...
  • WELCOME TO THE BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC FAMILY. <3
  • p.s. If you have any questions, feel free to ask anytime!
