Hey again (same person from before heh) your explanation was way longer and in such greater detail than I expected, and I deeply thank you for that! Now I am a true believer of JasPearl-also whenever I type JasPearl it autocorrects it to JASPEARL but I've never typed JasPearl in all caps and ye end of story

aaaahh gosh of course!!! sdfkljdslf im really happy you (and others too!) appreciate it ;;; i have a million other little theories too but it was so long already i had to cut it somewhere LOL

also totally the reason your phone is using caps is because JASPEARL NEEDS TO BE LOUD!!! BC JASPER IS ALWAYS LOUD WHEN ITS ABOUT PEARL!

If you're looking for prompts, might I suggest a pic of Peridot comforting a slightly stressed out Lapis? Something that shows how much Peri tries to help with her fellow gem work through the tough times?

if you get lost you can always be found

THE QURAN TEACHES US TO BE OPTIMISTIC

I always find myself questioning the things I do, even if I was the one who opted to do it from the beginning. I frequently ask myself whether I’m doing the right thing. Whether there’s any good in the things I choose to put myself in. The school I go to, the activities I join, the events I attend, the friends I choose to keep. Are my decisions going to benefit my future or are they just a waste of time? I wonder if I’m really doing anything right these days. You see, I have always had this fear in me. This fear I can’t specifically explain. I often am afraid if I make the wrong choices, especially when I have to make big important life decisions. What if my plans don’t work out? Who will I be in 10 years? Will I ever really figure it out?

I hate self-doubt. You know when they say we are our own biggest critics, they’re hella right.

Sometimes, the plans that I have for myself, are not exactly the plans that Allah has for me. I get myself in a relationship, and it ends tragically. I take up a course I thought I’m good at, and later fail miserably. I apply for a scholarship, but then find out I was rejected. I plan to graduate on time, but got sick and am told to defer my studies. All these circumstances, it all leads to self-doubt. Will I ever be good enough for anything?

A few days ago, I was reading Surah Al-Kahf and stumbled upon a verse that struck a chord with me. It was so beautiful I made it my phone’s wallpaper lol. The verse goes:

إِلَّا أَن يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَاذْكُر رَّبَّكَ إِذَا نَسِيتَ وَقُلْ عَسَىٰ أَن يَهْدِيَنِ رَبِّي لِأَقْرَبَ مِنْ هَٰذَا رَشَدًا 

“Except “if Allah wills.” And remember your Lord when you forget & say “May my Lord guide me to what is right” (18:24)

Perfect timing. This verse isn’t only a do’a but also a statement of optimism. “Asa” according to the arabic language is a verb used to express hope. Subhanallah, Allah is teaching us that the most fundmental thing we need is His guidance. He is teaching us that in the end, He knows best what is good for us and all we have to do is give our best in the things we do. The rest is Allah’s job. I learnt that if we do what is good, our effort will never go to waste, even if things don’t turn out the way we want it. Our compensation is with Allah. 

The verse screams optimism. It says “when you forget” because whenever something bad/failure befalls us, we tend to lose hope. We are bound to feel lost & confused. Been there a lot of time. So this powerful verse is telling us ‘no, don’t give up, hang in there and ask Allah to guide you’. He created us, He created the stars and the universe, so He definitely knows what is best for us. Whatever happens yesterday, stays there. If we have failed in the past, that failure should not dictate our future. 

“Amazing is the affair of the believer, verily all of his affair is good and this is not for no one except the believer. If something of good/happiness befalls him he is grateful and that is good for him. If something of harm befalls him he is patient and that is good for him” (Saheeh Muslim #2999)

So I guess we will never really have all the answers, but it’s perfectly okay, What we do know is that we can always ask Allah to guide us to what’s the best for us.

As long has we put our trust in him, we are in good hands.

SSU Student Union (ft. Melanie and Graham in the distance)

when you and someone else find it so hard to synchronize, talk at the right time, see each other,, that’s happening for a reason. the Universe creates blocks and it creates it for a reason. I have learnt that when it feels so hard to work with someone and it doesn’t flow, let it go. You or the other person is either not ready, its not the right time, there’s more to learn ect. Trust the universe knows best and knows what is best for you.

bloodybakura  asked:

Let's say Lapid and Atumu /can/ fuse. What kind of dance would they do to do it? Also, if they could, do you think they would be a safe/stable fusion?

Realistically, they’d waltz - I imagine that would be their first accidental fusion (if they could fuse). 

But honestly I’d give my left kidney to have Lapis dancing Baladi for Atumu.

You were practically jumping up and down in the elevator because of how excited you were as the doors slid open. It’d been almost 6 months since you’d last seen Tony which was without a doubt the longest period of time you’d gone without seeing him in your life. Things had become chaotic in your life and his but the two of you still talked on a regular basis. You were his one sense of stability at this point in his life and he had proven time and time again that he would do anything to keep you safe.

Red String Of Fate

The one where Jimin and Jungkook were best friends until a confession turns everything upside down. They meet again two years later but things have changed… Or have they?

or

“I can’t believe it took Jungkook having his ass handed to him on a golden platter for them to sort this shit out.”

Jikook // 17K // warning: violence (ao3)

It was weird seeing someone who had once meant so much to you walk by without even a glance. Scratch that, there was a glance… There was a moment of recognition and then there was an intentional act of looking away and not bothering to look back while Jungkook stood there fighting to get his breath back.

He knew Jimin had moved out of Busan to study in the same university he was currently enrolled in but never in a thousand lifetimes had Jungkook expected to run into him now – when his first semester there ended with no sign of Jimin, he ruled that out as something that just wasn’t going to happen. Imagine his surprise when, walking to his next class, he heard the laugh he held so close to his heart, one he missed more than pretty much anything, one he would recognize anywhere.

Of course Jungkook knew it was his fault that they stopped talking, he had been the one to screw up and push Jimin away simply because he didn’t know how to handle the situation they were put in. Still, when Jimin looked his way, part of him hoped he would at least acknowledge him there and maybe give him another chance to undo the damages of the past.

But Jimin hadn’t even spared him a second glance and it hit Jungkook like a thousand bricks that he had been too naïve to believe things would change in the blink of an eye.

So Jungkook pulled his backpack further up on his shoulder and went in the opposite direction, Jimin’s you’ll always be my best friend echoing inside his brain.
