something that never changed

If you’d like to donate to me that’s totally cool, I always appreciate it, but if you’re only considering it please don’t message me saying that you’re going to do it for sure because then I spend the next few days sad that it doesn’t happen. Not to sound ungrateful or anything, it just makes me wonder if I’ve done something to make you change your mind. You are NEVER obligated to donate to me to be my fan or follower! I’m just happy to have y'all around!

The culture of college education in this country is so frustrating to me, because it ends up feeling like life and death when it really really shouldn’t. Failing an exam or dropping a class or taking more than four years or even dropping out of school shouldn’t feel like the end of the world, and we all know this, rationally, at yet they do. 

(And people who went to college when you could basically always get into your first choice school and pay for the entire year with your summer job busing tables, perpetuate this by making everything about arbitrary metrics of ~success~ rather than happiness/general life satisfaction).

And yeah, there are a lot of cultural and societal factors at play, not least of which is the way that our education system treats college like the goal, something that must be harnessed to guarantee the highest possible earning potential, a necessity for future success and happiness. 

But expecting to know what you want to do for the rest of your life when you’re what? 17/18/19? is ridiculous. Hell, I’m in my twenties and in grad school and I still don’t know what I want to do with my life most days. Basically no one I graduated from college with is doing what they ultimately want to do (if they even know what they want to do). 

Idk idk. Life isn’t linear and it’s a lot longer than it seems when you’re 19 (which I realize is rich coming from me, the 23 year old), and they way we treat college is kind of (very) fucked up. 

Annoying things about the types
  • INTJ: they will say "I thought so" every time u reveal something they didn't know to them
  • INFJ: will never truly change their ideas about something, doesn't matter how much effort u put in convincing them
  • ENTP: they literally never shut up
  • ESTP: never stop competing in everything with everyone
  • ISTP: the most pessimistic people ever
  • ISFJ: makes u feel bad for not being altruistic and patient like them
  • ENFJ: capable of hugging and stabbing you at the same time
  • ESFJ: act like they understand what you're talking about before actually thinking about it
  • ENFP: always in need of a cause to live for, never shut up about it
  • ESFP: nothing. ESFPs are perfect beings, 10/10
  • ISTJ: never tells you what they think
  • ESTJ: will repeat the same joke 60 times in a row
  • ISFP: drama queens
  • INTP: honestly, they are weird af
  • ENTJ: will come sharp dressed at a pajama party
  • INFP: can have 3 opinions that contradict each other

No matter how bad things may seem at any point in your life, there’s going to be at least one positive thing. Even if it’s something small, focus on that one positive thing. It’ll help you get through anything. You can create positivity in your life and even if it doesn’t seem like much, that positivity can grow into something that will change your life. Never give up and always find that one positive thing. ❤

(1/5) Recap of Vhope during 2016: On stage

Taehyung (to Hoseok): “I’m glad you’re by my side”

I bet Kai in the first stages of his crush on Cinder wrote “Linh Kaito” in some important paper bc he kept daydreaming about the cute mechanic who was totally wifey material

Flowershop AU

part one. this was never meant to be more than two parts, but i merged a helnik au into and now we’re here….

For Inej working at the flower shop was a rest stop on the road to something much more important. She wasn’t sure where she was headed, but the desire to do something more—be more—compelled her. 

She had an innate ambition to travel, wandering as hereditary in her family as her brown eyes. The big city lights of Ketterdam lured her from her small town—much like her coworker, Jesper. They both migrated to the city for college, each taking on jobs that consumed their leisure time to make ends meet, ending up in the same overlooked shop. They were two young adults whose friendship flourished, not because of the routine of seeing each other, but due to the fact they both felt like tiny fish in a vast, dark ocean they never belonged in. Though unlike him, she had plans to get out of the complicated net Ketterdam ended up to be. She witnessed first hand how the city sucked people in and trap them; she couldn’t allow herself to be one of them. 

She didn’t feel rooted here. Or anywhere for that matter. She would wade through Ketterdam with the same vigor she used in her other travels. Some feared getting lost, but Inej enjoyed the mystery of it, the thrill of what parts of herself she could discover each time she traveled some place new.
