This Questionnaire From Serial Killer Richard Ramirez Is Very Disturbing

From 1985 until his death in 2013, serial killer Richard Ramirez (aka The Night Stalker), was in prison. During this time, Ramirez managed to earn himself quite the devoted fan club. Behind bars, he was never short on letters to read and respond back to. At one point, someone sent Ramirez a friendship questionnaire, not unlike something you would send to a new pen pal.

Between April 1984 and August 1985, Ramirez killed 13 people in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas.

The serial killer was known for his savage violence after breaking into people’s homes in the dead of night. Often, his targets were chosen completely at random.

Because he had so much time on his hands in prison, when he received the friend questionnaire, Ramirez actually took the time to fill it out and mail it back. To say some of his answers are a little politically incorrect would be an understatement.

BTS: House of Cards (Pt.2 Gang AU)

Character profile

Prologue
“House of Cards”

Let me ask you a question.

On the scale of 1 to 10.

 How unfortunate can you be?

The crime life wasn’t made for me.

  You had nothing since you were born. Heck. You don’t even know who your parents was. You were barely able to walk when you were sold off. All you knew was the fear, the humiliation of being at the beck and call of your so called masters. If you were disobedient, you are in for it. Your childhood in BIGHIT was nothing but a nightmare. Safe for the fact that you knew Jimin in the toughest of times which you were glad for. But then all good moments must come to an end.

  Now that you have finally fought your way up the food chain. You are never going let what you have earned go down to the drain. Not in this life time.
You have someone to protect. That’s final.
A promise is a promise.

  “We are going to get out of this alive. Together.”

  “No matter how long it takes.”

  “Stay strong for me.”

-

  BTS was one of the strongest crime syndicate in Seoul. With Namjoon as the current head, and the deadly 7 they aim to be the strongest, with a goal in mind to take down their number one rival, BIGHIT. Which was ironically Jimin’s personal goal too.


  Not that BTS was starting trouble. But BIGHIT had been climbing all over their heads since two weeks ago. To make matters worst, Namjoon’s little brother was captured just two hours ago. This was the last straw for Namjoon and BTS. You can mess with Namjoon but definitely not the people he care about.

  BTS Mansion

  “Any news?” Suga asked Namjoon who was pacing with a phone in his hand.

  “No. All they left was his anklet in a box with a ransom letter.” Namjoon replied, frustrated.

  “Definitely them then i guess?” Jin guessed.

  “Seems like what those rats always do.” J-hope chimed in.

  “But we don’t have evidence and according to the underground law, we cannot do anything.” Jimin answered.

  “I don’t think at this time Namjoon cares about that.” Taehyung added.

  “How are we going to deal with this?” Jungkook questioned.

  “I am sure they aren’t going to kill him quite yet until they get what they want. We shall deal with this in a civilized manner until my brother is save and they would have wish they hadn’t done so.”

Foolishly.

We are all trying to protect someone.

Protecting our House of Cards.


A/n: Hey hmm, i don’t know what i should call you guys so readers? This is a short prologue/preview for my new Gang au or pt.2 of my gang au trilogy. Hope you guys would like and support it!

& To clarify: This is a new gang/mafia au story and has no link to pt.1 of my gang/mafia au trilogy, save me.

43 Motivational Quotes to Inspire you During those Difficult and Challenging Times Confronted in your Job Search


Searching for a new job is an exhilarating, exciting, challenging, frustrating, maddening and heart breaking experience all at once.

Interviewing, constantly tweaking the resume, social media and real-life networking, creating catchy cover letters, running out to interviews, getting rejected, not hearing back from the company after you thought you did amazingly well, and a myriad of other ups and downs could be very discouraging and disheartening.

It is a time like this that you could really use a pick-me-up.  A stirring speech from a coach, life-changing statement from a favorite teacher, or words of wisdom and encouragement from a parent.

Also, we could seek out the advice of successful people who have been through their own challenging times.

Here are 43  quotes to motivate you and get you through the difficult periods of the job search.



1.      “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” - Thomas A. Edison

4.      "Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.“ –John Wooden


5.      "If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary.” –Jim Rohn


6.      "Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them.“ –Anonymous


7.      "If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got.” –Anonymous


8.      "Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.“ –Winston Churchill


9.      “If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.” - Dhirubhai Ambani


10.     “The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.” - Mark Caine

15.     “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”  -  Steve Jobs


16.     “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”  - Eleanor Roosevelt


17.     “Really it comes down to your philosophy. Do you want to play it safe and be good or do you want to take a chance and be great?” - Jimmy J

21.     “The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” - Bruce Lee


22.     “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” - Swami Vivekananda


23.     “Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.” - Dale Carnegie


24.     “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” - Jim Rohn

29.     “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

Zodiac Love Songs!

Love, especially the romantic kind, is the most wonderful and exciting part of being human — as well as the most difficult. It certainly does “take two” — the trick is to get and keep those two on the same page. That’s why so many different types of love songs have been written, about everything from new love to forever love to unrequited love. The list is as endless as the feelings love inspires. Here’s a peek at what each sign likes to hear, no matter what they’re feeling.

Aries
This fiery sign doesn’t go for your basic Air Supply type stuff — and don’t ever, ever play Barry for them (Manilow, that is … Barry White will do fine, especially with champagne and chocolates). In particular, they’ll like love songs that have a rock and roll beat to them. Something that reflects their Fire element — like “Fire” by the Pointer Sisters, a classic that will rev them up in all the right departments, or “Fire on High” by ELO. Oh, and if they’re angry? Expect to hear “Love Stinks” (J Geils Band) or “I Will Survive” (Gloria Gaynor).

Taurus
Taurus natives play for keeps in all departments, and when it comes to romantic love, the person you love belongs to you (in your mind, at least!). You, Taurus, are the personal property of Venus,

Love Songs of the Zodiac Signs!

Love, especially the romantic kind, is the most wonderful and exciting part of being human — as well as the most difficult. It certainly does “take two” — the trick is to get and keep those two on the same page. That’s why so many different types of love songs have been written, about everything from new love to forever love to unrequited love. The list is as endless as the feelings love inspires. Here’s a peek at what each sign likes to hear, no matter what they’re feeling.

Aries 
This fiery sign doesn’t go for your basic Air Supply type stuff — and don’t ever, ever play Barry for them (Manilow, that is … Barry White will do fine, especially with champagne and chocolates). In particular, they’ll like love songs that have a rock and roll beat to them. Something that reflects their Fire element — like “Fire” by the Pointer Sisters, a classic that will rev them up in all the right departments, or “Fire on High” by ELO. Oh, and if they’re angry? Expect to hear “Love Stinks” (J Geils Band) or “I Will Survive” (Gloria Gaynor).

Taurus 
Taurus natives play for keeps in all departments, and when it comes to romantic love, the person you love belongs to you (in your mind, at least!). You, Taurus, are the personal property of Venus, the Goddess of Love, so the perks of being your companion are excellent. Still, there are two romantic songs that immediately spring to mind when it comes to the type of love Taurus feels: “Always and Forever” (Luther Vandross) and “Let’s Stay Together” (Al Green).

Gemini 
Okay, so everything you’ve ever read about your sign says that you’re fickle. Well, that’s not exactly true. You can be as faithful and reliable as a Taurus, provided you’re amused. That’s not as tough as it sounds. You’re tough, but you’re easy, too, as long as you have a mental equal who understands your need to banter and play. So let’s start with “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” (Animals) for obvious reasons, and to dispel all those rumors about that fickleness, how about “Unforgettable” (Nat King Cole), a tribute to the one ultra-special person they truly must be to have landed you!

Cancer 
Your sign is famous for many things, but what all your traits have in common is an incomparable talent for expressing love and affection. Even romantically, you do it through nurturing, protecting and letting the lucky object of your attention know, in many ways, that you cherish them more than anyone or anything else on the planet. There are two songs that really work for you: “Love Me Tender” by none other than Elvis “The King” Presley, and “Lady,” the ultimate tribute to a loved one, by Lionel Ritchie.

Leo 
Every sign has its own way of loving, and their own way of treating their loved one. Leo, however, thinks of love the same way this regal, royal sign thinks of everything else: as a magnificent, noble, elegant gift — the best and truest thing any two people can exchange. For that reason, there are two songs that suit your particular style of loving just perfectly: “The Glory of Love” by Bette Midler, and “Shining Star” by Earth, Wind and Fire, which describes their beloved as the Sun, the center of life itself — and Astrology’s very own “shining star.”

Virgo
You approach love the same way you approach everything else, Virgo, and it’s all reflected beautifully by “What’s Simple is True” (Jewel). In many ways, it’s an ode to the way you live your life: by the basics. You work very hard to keep your life drama-free. No scenes, no crises and as few arguments as possible. You’re also famous for being quite picky, and in the department of romance, that’s something other people really should learn. Once you do find your soul mate, there’s only one song you’d dedicate to them: “Waiting for a Girl [or Guy] Like You” by Foreigner.

Libra 
In all things romantic, your objective — and your M.O. — remains the same, Libra: to find the right person, entice them to get to know you better and then, if and when things work out, to romance them better than anyone else. The end goal is to find and keep your soul mate. The songs that come to mind for you are “Your Song” by Elton John, and “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton (and many others), a classic that’s inspired more than one proposal.

Scorpio
Say the word “sexy” to any group of astrologers, and their immediate, unanimous response will be “Scorpio.” Obviously, any love song you identify with absolutely must have sexy words and a sexy beat. No sweet stuff here — just a potent, throbbing message, and lyrics that don’t play games. In that department, there are two songs that immediately come to mind: “Private Dancer” by Tina Turner, and “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye. Play those for a new flame. If they appreciate the message, great. If they play them for you first, pick up your jaw discreetly and start thinking about two-bedroom apartments.

Sagittarius 
You’re a free-wheeling kind of soul, Sagittarius. You always have been and you always will be. For that reason, there are very few love songs that appeal to you. They’ve got to be the kind that reflect: (1) your love of freedom and (2) your secret wish to have the absolutely perfect travel partner on your arm as you patrol the planet looking for the next adventure. So, “Cowboy, Take Me Away” by The Dixie Chicks, regardless of your sweetie’s gender, is perfect for category 1, and “Almost Paradise” (by several artists) is tailor-made for number two.

Capricorn 
Your sign’s symbol has always been the Mountain Goat, who easily navigates even the most perilous ridge, showing its penchant for living life on the edge — but safely. So while you take your chances, especially with romance, they’re planned and deliberate. You wait until it’s safe, then go all out to scale that mountain. For all those reasons, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terell is a classic that suits you … your inner desires and your ambition to succeed once you’ve set any goal. Now, there’s one way for you to present yourself, and one thing you ask, hence song number two: “Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel.

Aquarius 
“I’m Real,” by Jennifer Lopez. To be honest, it’s the best song ever written about your sign, and you should hand-deliver it to anyone you’re initially drawn to. The main reason is one line: “What you get is what you see.” You, Aquarius, are the most open, honest and genuine sign out there. Song number two, “The Closer I Get to You” by Luther Vandross, should also be hand-delivered, but not until you’re sure that he or she is the real deal. You know how you get with the independence thing, so until you are sure your love will be returned and your love of freedom will be respected, song number two will have to wait.

Pisces 
The three Water signs are the most sympathetic, understanding and warm-hearted of the twelve signs, and you’re the eldest of the bunch — so if anyone knows how to express love (sometimes to a fault) it’s definitely you, Pisces. That makes choosing love songs a tough job — mostly because no matter what feeling the song describes, you’ve been there. Dozens appeal to your tender hearts, especially when you’re madly, passionately in love, and absolutely spellbound by your beloved. Take, for example, “The Wonder of Love” by Elvis. “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright reflects your spiritual side and your love of all things magical.

Hi nommi~~ Im turning 20 this week and i dont know how to feel!! Definitely excited to see what the year has in store for me, but I cant help but feel old now that im at the big 20!!! Life is moving way to fast for me right now!! Ahhh

HELLO!! Omg I know right?? I’m also turning 20 this year and it seems so surreal. It looks like such a big jump!

I know age is just a number, so we shouldn’t think too much of it, but you know what? You can also see this as a new beginning of your life. As we get older, we get more responsibilities, but also get more independent and free to purchase our goals. So try to focus on what makes you happy and try to accomplish the goals you have, because this is your life and you’re the only one able to make yourself feel happy! 

Make this new year of your life full of new experiences and fulfillment, because you’re capable of great things, now more than ever! 

Also, I know this might be too early, but happy birthday! ♥

“Best Days” : (Pokeshipping; one-shot; for HollyLu)

Heya, everyone, here’s the next one-shot/drabble/request thingy that I’m posting, and this time it’s for the famous hollylu-pokeship-art​! She wanted me to write something including the following quote: “I saw that. You just checked me out.” She also requested that Misty be the one to say it so as to include more insight into Ash’s attraction to her.

So anyway, here we are, sorry it took so long, and I’m even more sorry for how it ends. Truth be told, I was totally vibing on continuing this but… ah… it was definitely heading in a… strong nsfw direction if I kept writing the way I was writing and I’m not comfortable posting my original works like that on my blog. I’m just not that good.

However, maybe, at some point, I’ll write what I wanted to for my own personal benefit…

OoOoO

Title - “Best Days”

Summary -  Jeezus, why does Misty have to be so annoying anyway? What did you ever do to her? Why can’t she just go back to being that scrawny, loud, aggressive water-type trainer you remember from when you both were kids?

OoOoO

You know, it’s been months since you last saw her in person for any extended amount of time so you were originally really looking forward to this.

A week-long vacation with some of your best and oldest friends, including Brock, Tracey, and Misty.

Yep, her. It’s, in fact, that particular her that is making you feel really frustrated right about now as you and your three friends pass the beach ball to one another in the water, currently enjoying a day at the beach in Cerulean City.

And you can’t quite put your finger on what it is about her that’s annoying you. Sure, it could be the way she practically mocks you by referring to you by her classic nickname, Mr. Pokemon Master, though the joke is technically on her at this point since you’ve finally accomplished your childhood goal and are now a minimum of one year into your first term as Kanto’s highest-acclaimed trainer.

It could also be any one of the number of short jokes she’s handed you on a silver platter because, hey, you’re nineteen years old and you’re still an inch shorter than her after all of these years (which is a bigger disappointment than basically anything you’ve ever known in your entire life because you’re quite sure that she’ll never let you live it down). Or maybe it’s about her practically threatening you with the idea of how stupid it is to wear your official Pokemon League cap in the water because all it would take is one well-placed wave or breeze for it to blow right off, and who knows how far it would be carried, and you’d never be able to catch it what with you being stuck wading through the sea.

But oddly enough none of these things seem to upset you in the moment when she says them hoping - forgive the pun - to make a splash and upset the balance between you.
