they better have something good planned

Good morning everybody ♡

The last couple of days were pretty exhausting for me, jobwise. Even more so yesterday I was looking forward to train. Compared to other training sessions it was kind of frustrating though. I was not able to lift as much as the last time and I just could not get the pump. After doing what I had to do, that is getting a sufficient stimulus for muscle growth, I stopped - reluctantly.

See, sometimes things don’t work out the way we planned. Be that as it may. Accept it and move on. I could have pushed through yesterday but that would have led to even more fatigue. It would have been a chore and I don’t want that to happen. Training to me is something epic, something that makes me very happy. If, for some reason, it does not satisfy me, I try again. Knowing that the next level is out there waiting for me.

I ate well and had a good night sleep and I woke up this morning feeling a lot better. Heading to the gym for arms day, I expect nothing less from my arms than to explode!

Have a great day!

I basically cried a lot because of the fact that this bitch ass old motherfucker became president. I cannot think of any reason this might be good for anyone though I’ve seen many turkish politicians claiming him to be the better president than clinton when it comes to the turkish population. My future and dreams have probably been completely shuttered by something this stupid. I will still try my best and never chill on the fact that this orange faced bitch can change my plans and destroy whatever I wanted to create myself in my future. One good thing about this situation is that I was never more thankful to have so many great people around me whose existence in my life are of great importance and significance that I would rather spend my time with them than being in other places on my own. At this point, and this sounds a bit like a speech after you win an award, but it is almost the same thing as he is the best award I’ve ever had metaphorically without doing anything to deserve this or never going to be able to deserve someone as perfect as him, I want to thank my boyfriend, the person who has been teaching me so much in the last months. The person, who has been showing me what unconditional love means, what it means to really have someone by your side who protects you, who every single day and minute gives you the feeling of being wanted and loved and desired. He has been showing me how beautiful life can be and I am so grateful to have someone like him. I have never been so grateful in my life at all. I don’t want to talk so much about him because he is only mine and I’m always afraid of someone trying to get what is mine because of jealousy and I wouldn’t even be mad at the fact that someone would want to have him after I talk about him, I would even understand if someone falls in love with him just by me telling you about him cause there is no way not to fall in love with him. He is simply perfect without even trying. He always has the perfect words to make my heart melt, to make me feel happy. I am not an easy person and how he handles me and how much love he gifts me is unbelievable. I am so thankful for everything he has ever done for me and I cannot thank him enough for his patience. He has the biggest heart out of everyone I’ve ever met and I can’t believe how lucky I am to have this man in my life let alone to be able to marry this man one day.
If you read this, I promise I will always stay by your side as long as you love me I will make things work and try my best to meet your love and effort.
I love you, so unconditionally

I am pushing myself every day, to be a better person, to learn, to be someone worth something some day. Trying to do it all, but the truth is, it doesn’t matter. None of it does. Nothing I do ever will, it never has. At the end of the day, I’m just a small girl with dreams that are way out of her league - stuck between living in the moment and planning the next 10 years of my life, between being okay with not having life figured out and crying myself to sleep because i have no idea what to do. Trying so hard and still not being good enough, having people who expect great things but tell me I’m worth nothing.

On good days, I’m okay with everything I’ve achieved. I’m okay with who I am and who I have become. I’m okay with not having my life figured out at 19. There’s gotta be more to life than being right and making sound decisions, there’s gotta be more than just following a plan.

But on the bad, all i can think about is turning 20 in two short days, and being nowhere close to achieving what I’ve always wanted. Nowhere close to being someone who’s on a path to greatness, no one who deserves a damn thing in the world. On the bad nights, I can’t figure out if my existence has even a tiny bit of importance. So what if i do my hardest every day? The bad days make me question everything I do, have ever done. Make me question every decision I’ve made, I keep thinking that if I just vanished, nothing would change. On the bad days, every mistake, every little error is a demon of its own, telling me I won’t ever be enough. And with each bad day, a good one seems to get further and further away.

I’m stuck and i don’t quite know how to rescue myself.
No one can say things worse than what I tell myself every second of the day.
So what do you do, when you are your own nightmare come to life?

—  And to think I couldn’t wait to grow up

Good to know my fix-it would be an actual award-winning show.  Like, it’s such a good idea, better than any they’ve had, so I want them to be doing this? I want them to succeed with this idea? Because it is so good. And because I want attention to be taken away from the Inauguration. This would be groundbreaking and I want them to do it. If they don’t have something close to this planned, that is 100% their fault for letting such an opportunity slip through their fingers and 0% any of our faults for trying to see how clever this show could be.

The Most Valuable Things Everyone Should Know by Professor Jordan B Peterson
  1. Tell the truth.  
  2. Do not do things that you hate. 
  3. Act so that you can tell the truth about how you act. 
  4. Pursue what is meaningful, not what is expedient.
  5. If you have to choose, be the one who does things, instead of the one who is seen to do things.
  6. Pay attention.
  7. Assume that the person you are listening to might know something you need to know. Listen to them hard enough so that they will share it with you.
  8. Plan and work diligently to maintain the romance in your relationships.  
  9. Be careful who you share good news with.
  10. Be careful who you share bad news with.

  12. Imagine who you could be, and then aim single-mindedly at that. 
  13. Do not allow yourself to become arrogant or resentful. 
  14. Try to make one room in your house as beautiful as possible.
  15. Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today.
  16. Work as hard as you possibly can on at least one thing and see what happens.
  17. If old memories still make you cry, write them down carefully and completely.
  18. Maintain your connections with people. 
  19. Do not carelessly denigrate social institutions or artistic achievement. 
  20. Treat yourself as if you were someone that you are responsible for helping.
  21. Ask someone to do you a small favour, so that he or she can ask you to do one in the future.
  22. Make friends with people who want the best for you.

  25. Set your house in perfect order before you criticize the world.
  26. Dress like the person you want to be.

  34. Read something written by someone great.
  35. Pet a cat when you encounter one on the street.
  36. Do not bother children when they are skateboarding. 
  37. Don’t let bullies get away with it.
  38. Write a letter to the government if you see something that needs fixing – and propose a solution.
  39. Remember that what you do not yet know is more important than what you already know.
  40. Be grateful in spite of your suffering.

God knows best. He knows what you need. Sometimes, I’ve prayed so hard for something and felt utterly dejected when I didn’t get what I wanted. But months or years later I see that if I had got the thing I wanted, I would have lost out on something even bigger and better, something I didn’t even know I needed. God’s plan for your life is good. He loves you too much to let you settle for the second best.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Despite what I’ve posted about Civil War, I don’t think it should be critiqued harshly for being made as a response to BvS as I don’t see it as being very far removed from the people who complain about WB only making DC films ‘’for the money’’. Just because it was a reactionary move doesn’t mean They didn’t make something pretty good out of it and the fact that BvS challenged Them to make it is a good sign as it means that the two companies are challenging each other to do better which is exactly how rivalries should work.

All it means is that people would have to stop flogging this ‘’Marvel have absolutely fucking EVERYTHING planned out’’ narrative that we know hasn’t been fucking true since 2015 or so.

anonymous asked:

Hi 😊 Sorry about your terrible day, I hope you feel better ❤ I'm new to ask, I never really asked anyone anything so forgive me. But can I have some Valentines Day Headcanons with Prompto and Noctis? Like what do they do for their s/o on valentines day. Do they plan special dates or give gifts? I love love letters 😄❤ I hope that makes sense. Thanks 😊 I love your blog btw, I started following it a few days ago and its good 😊😊❤

I’m gonna have to get to the rest of the Valentine’s Day requests tomorrow, unfortunately. I wanted to get something out for each of the bros, so this is the last thing and then I’m heading to bed. This makes me realize I didn’t get an individual Noctis ask, either. hm. I’ll have to write something for him tomorrow.

Also, edit, to actually reply to the ask: Thank you. I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog. <3 I hope this was satisfactory.


So, Prompto is gonna do as much as he can on his limited budget. The boy doesn’t have that much money, but he still wants Valentine’s to be special for his s/o. He buys his s/o an almost too-large box of their favorite candy and one of those giant teddy bears. It’s almost as big as he is, and he wants his s/o to have it. “To snuggle if I can’t be there,” he says, except his s/o knows it was actually because the bear is so large. Who passes up that kinda chance? From there Prompto will serenade his s/o in songs and take plenty of pictures of them, of them and the bear, and of the two of them together. In the evening, there’s lots of kissing and cuddles.

Noctis will spoil his s/o on Valentine’s Day. He’s a prince, he has all kinds of money, and he wants to spend it on his s/o. So they go out shopping, and Noct buys them anything that they like. Except they end up not wanting very much, so Noct just ends up buying a few pairs of jeans, candy, and a much smaller teddy bear than Prompto would have bought. They go out for milkshakes, too, and they do that thing where they have two straws and one milkshake. After milkshakes, they spend the rest of the day just kinda strolling around town and not doing anything in particular. They come across some street bands and listen to them and they dance together, then give the musicians one hell of a tip before going on their way. Noctis would convince his s/o to let him take them to a fancy restaurant, and they end up feeding their foods to each other. There’s lots of giggling when Noct turns his head at the wrong time and gets a cheek full of salmon. When they get home, Noctis wraps the two of them up into a huge blanket burrito and they settle on the couch to watch movies, snuggle, and eskimo kiss until they fall asleep.

I really enjoy reading DW fics revolving around telepathy, and when they fall in love and explore a telepathic connection. Are there any fics you know of that illustrate that romantic connection really well? I love how close they become because of it

Sorry for how long this has taken! I always end up overthinking when it comes to finding recs. There are SO MANY good fics involving telepathy, and if I do too many, Tumblr will break the links, so I’ll try to rein it in!

See also: @thedalektables Telepathy Rec List, Bonding Rec List,  and telepathy tag,  the telepathy tag on @tardisbibliothek, and telepathic bond on @readingroomrose (I’ll try not to duplicate too much but we’ll see :P.)

It’s a LIE that …

1. Being tough on yourself will lead to success. Constantly criticising every move you make will slowly wear you down and undermine your will to try.

2. Self-compassion is a form of selfishness. In fact, people who are willing to give themselves a break are much more likely to be kind to other people, too.

3. Security is something that’s achievable. The world is a changing and uncertain place. There’s little in this life that ever stays the same. It is better to aspire to be adaptable, and to learn to embrace the reality of change.

4. You should always be working to achieve some goal. Although it’s good to have a plan and direction in your life, we also need to be willing to alter our course if we learn that something different would be much better for us.

5. Other people are all normal – but there’s something wrong with you. We’re all a bit weird, and have idiosyncrasies. It’s just that you’re aware of your own quirks and flaws.

6. Acquiring some new stuff or achieving that great goal will make you happy, or will turn your life around. But the truth is that happiness is always transitory. As soon as you have grasped it – it seems to get away. (Note: According to research into positive psychology, 10% of our happiness is the result of what is happening in the environment; 50% is dictated by genes; and 40% is determined by our attitude.)

7. You need to have all the answers to live a happy life. Life is about growth and self-development … And none of us is perfect – we all make some mistakes.

Peter got me a Puppy (Peter Parker x Reader)

AN: Happy holidays everyone :) 

You tapped your nails against the bench top, waiting anxiously for your boyfriend to walk through the front door. Peter and you had been planning this Christmas dinner for weeks and he’s an hour late? Something didn’t feel right. You knew he was Spider-man, that his job often meant that he would have to cancel plans with the people he cared about to protect the lives of others, and you had so much respect for him for what he does everyday. You’d been dating Peter for two years now and you were best friends before, you knew him better than anyone. So you knew that he wouldn’t be late to this dinner unless he had a good reason and you were worried it was a reason to do with Spider-man. 

You couldn’t stop yourself from pacing around the kitchen, both Ned and May trying to reassure you that Peter was going to be here soon and that everything was fine. You were worried sick about him, you always did every time he disappeared or you heard news about Spider-man saving the city from some bad guys. But you couldn’t help but worry about Peter, you loved him so much. You didn’t only think of him as your boyfriend and best friend, but you believed he was your soulmate and knew that if anything happened to Peter it would kill you too. 

Your pacing came to a halt as you faintly heard movement coming from his bedroom. You practically sprinted to his room, hoping it was Peter. You rush in to see Peter taking off his suit, you sigh in relief and quickly engulf him in a hug, your chin resting on his shoulder. Peter pulled apart from your embrace and rested his hands on your shoulders, sending you an adorable smile. His cheeks and nose were a rosy red colour from the cold outside. 

“I was so worried Peter! I thought you got hurt fighting one of those evil guys that you’re always chasing after. Ned and May thought I was crazy for worrying so much, but if only they knew what you did in your spare time. Well, I mean Ned knows but it’s Ned he’ll always laugh at my overreactions.”

He chuckled at your ramblings and placed a light kiss on your forehead. “Babe, I’m fine, see.”, he gestures towards himself. “You shouldn’t worry so much, I was just picking up a gift for someone. I was on my way home when I saw someone being mugged so I helped them out, that’s why i’m in my suit. I’m Sorry for being late.”

You leaned into him, playing with his curly hair. “Don’t apologize Pete, you did the right thing, I just can’t help but worry about you. I love you.” Peter still blushes every time you tell him. “So whose present did you pick up?” You leaned behind him curiously to see where he put the present. Your jaw dropped and your eyes widened at the sight of the small and fluffy puppy curled up on the carpet. 

“Merry Christmas Y/N.”

You jumped up and down like a child getting a present on Christmas morning and squealed in excitement. You rushed over to the puppy and scooped it up into your arms, cradling it like a baby. You placed little kisses all over it’s face and patted it’s soft fur. You put it down on the ground for a minute whilst you ran over to your boyfriend, attacking him into a huge hug, almost knocking him over in the process. “Thank you! thank you! thank you!”. You wrap your arms around his neck, wasting no time in leaning in, your lips attaching to his.

You both pulled away, panting out of breath. “Oh you’re so getting properly thanked for this later tonight.”, you playfully said sending him a wink, leaving Peter with bright red cheeks. You giggled at his reaction and pecked his cheek again before picking up your puppy and rushing out the door in excitement shouting “May! Ned! Peter got me a puppy!”

telekinetic-pony asked:

Alright, so I’m having trouble on starting out my story because I don’t know what to start it with. I was planning on a flashback that is a nightmare for the character and they wake up from it a few seconds after. I feel like a flashback starting the story off is too common though? So should I do something else, or maybe tone the flashback down to something more like a few snippets of a memory?


Starting with a flashback isn’t a good idea if you can avoid it. It’s better to start a character off while something interesting is happening. It doesn’t have to be something directly related to the story, and it doesn’t have to be anything major, just something. They could be moving to a new town, running late to meet a friend for lunch, waiting for a tow truck at the side of the road–anything. Just imagine your character in their daily life. Then, choose something that is happening to them on an average day, and go with it. This is a great way to not only introduce your character, but also to show the reader what your character’s life is like before the inciting incident occurs. And, you can start to build in a little back story, too. Memories are a great way to do this, as is dialogue–like when they tell another character something about their past. 

You can read through the posts under “beginning a story” in my post master list if you need more help. :)

Mccree trying his best to do a southern comfort food style v day dinner?

this kind of connects with the last ask i did with mccree x’D i may just delve deeper into that.. also apologies if the food isn’t correct, it came up with these when i googled it X’D

  • The cowboy knows that you were pretty busy for this day, so he decided to make some relaxing food for you. Instead of something all fancy and stuff. It would be nice, but he knew you better.

  • With what he had got at the store, he was going to prepare some good food for you. What he’s got on the list is some peppered beef soup, macaroni and cheese with ham, (or without if you don’t eat meat,) and lots of other things that he’s planned. Although he couldn’t make them all tonight, maybe another time.

  • As he’s cooking, he’ll mess up sometimes because.. Well, he could have grabbed something wrong. Jesse then tries his best to fix the meal before it becomes ruined.

  • Once you come home, he’s almost finished with the soup. “You hungry?” He asked with a small chuckle. He was sure that you were.

  • As you both settle down next to each other to eat, he was glad that you were liking the food and winding down from your day out.

  • The gunslinger also got you roses, a stuffed bear, and chocolates~ Because you deserve it all, plus his love for you~

  • After you both finish eating, and Jesse finish washing the dishes, it’s off to the couch to snuggle and relax~

*** If you’re ever having a bad day, just google pictures of baby animals. I promise, you’ll feel better. ***


“Hey babygirl, you don’t have any plans for tonight right?” “Not that I know of. Why?” “I’m gonna bring someone home with me. Want you to meet him.” “What’s his name?” “Whiskey.” “I wonder how he got that name.” Both of you laughed. There was never a definite way that Sons got their nicknames. Could be how they looked, could be how they acted, could be something that they liked, could have been picked off the top of someone’s head, you never know but you think you had a pretty good idea with this one.

“What does he like to eat, I’ll make dinner.” “Just stick to whatever you were planning. He won’t be eating with us.” “Oh. Ok. When will you guys get here?” “About an hour or two. Try to pick up a little around the house, it’s probably not smart to keep shit on the floor around him.” You heard a laugh on the phone that sounded like Jax, Happy laughing lightly along with him. “What, is he blind?” “No. Just clean up alright.” “Well what should I wear?” “Doesn’t matter. You could just be naked, really.”

Jax’s hysterical laughter sounded over the line and you widened your eyes before you narrowed them. If you had ever even mentioned something like that, Hap would’ve flown off the handle and made it known that the only man to see you naked would be him. This didn’t make sense. “What the hell is going on?” “Nothing. Love you, bye.” and the line went dead. You pulled the phone away from your ear and starred at it. You knew you weren’t in danger, Happy would never bring someone to the house that he didn’t trust, but you couldn’t help but to feel anxious.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You were stirring the beans when you heard a knock at the door. You were immediately alert, not having heard a single bike. You had the thought that maybe the friend wasn’t a Son and had driven over in a car but you knew Hap wouldn’t send the guy over to the house by himself. You reached over into your purse and pulled out your glock, keeping it by your side as you looked through the peephole. Happy stood there but you didn’t see anyone else behind him. You opened the door and looked at him wearily.

“What are you up-” You were cut off as something slammed into your legs, almost knocking you down. You looked down scared but saw the cutest baby pitbull, panting and whining as he jumped on your legs, wanting you to pick him up. You dropped to your knees immediately and put the puppy in your arms, holding the warm bundle to your chest and looking up to Happy with the wide eyes of a child. “Where did he come from?” “Found him at a dog fighting ring today with the guys. Jax called the local vet to see what they could do but I snatched this one up for you before they got there. He was the only baby. He’s not injured or anything but he could use the love, he was shaking like a leaf for hours.” Your heart broke and you looked back down at the puppy, his eyes closed as he cuddled into you and you scratched his head. “He got a name?” “Whiskey.“

You slowly looked up at Hap, not amused in the slightest. “This is Whiskey?” “Well yeah. You didn’t really think I’d let you get naked for another man did you?” “After this stunt, I’m not even getting naked for you.” You sat up and stood, bringing Whiskey with you. “What about food for him? A bed?” “Let’s go now. I knew you’d want to be there.” You smiled and brought Whiskey with you to the bedroom, setting him on the bed as you began to get dressed. Just as you finished, Happy came into the room, playing with him for a minute before turning to you. “Ready?” “Yep.” You walked back over to the bed and picked him up, holding him to your shoulder and grabbing your purse. “Let’s go shopping, baby boy. Momma’s gonna spoil you.”

We’d like to let you guys know that we’re done with our trial-error!! At first, we had no intention on publishing this because we just wanted to test the GUI, BG, BGM, sprites and everything. Since we’re so excited, we think that it might be a good idea to share this with you guys!

This is not a demo, there’s only one story here, and not related to the story from the actual game. Of course we know that we’re still lacking many things and we’re planning to improve it and make it better. 

Guys, we so worked hard on this, we’re happy that we’re actually making something. This is not the end, and we still have a long way to go. We hope that you guys are still going to support us :)

He was surely but slowly chipping away at the King’s credibility. There was now talk in Hell that Crowley was weak and unfit to rule. You savored every moment of his humiliation. Every time he and Dean crossed paths you made sure to be there just to have the satisfaction of watching him flounder. You knew Crowley was angry and would be planning some sort of revenge. What he did do was the last thing you had expected.

Hello, it's me again. I would like to ask what kind of car insurance would you recommend for someone who's purchasing it for the first time, along with a car, and doesn't know all too much about cars, beyond the basics that is. And my parents never, or at least haven't since I was born, owned car insurance, so I couldn't give you a good answer. Sorry about that. Thank you again for taking the time into answering my asks.

Gotcha!

1. Expensive premiums. Insurance premiums for young adults (particularly young male drivers) are really high. This is because we’re considered immature and reckless drivers. I’ve poked around, and it looks like better premiums aren’t offered until a driver turns 25. I guess at that point we’ve grown up enough? This is something you’re going to have to deal with as a young driver.

2. Parent’s insurance. The easiest option is to get on an insurance plan with an “Adult”, typically this would mean a parent or guardian. Some companies will only allow you to do this if you live with your parents, but don’t consider this a deal-breaker. From what I’ve seen, this just means that your insurance card needs to have their home address on it instead of your’s. 

3. Driver’s Education Courses. Another thing I would highly recommend doing is taking some Driver’s Ed courses through your local DMV. Insurance companies will take a significant amount off your monthly premium if you agree to take (for example) defensive driving classes. This isn’t just for you- this applies for any driver with insurance. Some insurance companies offer their own programs. State Farm has a program called “Steer Clear” which saves you 15% on your monthly rate.

4. Different Plans. Every company has different rates and plans. Generally paying more money per month means a smaller deductible (amount paid of out pocket) in the event of an accident. For example, leasing a car requires a higher tier of car insurance than just owning a car outright. Because you’re young and don’t have lots of money, my advice would be to go for the lowest possible monthly premium. I know it sounds risky, but many, many people opt for this option. Lots of “Adults” do this, including my parents.

5. College. If you are a college student, you may be eligible for additional discounts! State Farm, for example, offers 25% off monthly premiums for students who achieve good grades. 

6. Cars. It’s impossible to predict or really even ballpark what your insurance rate might be. Your age, driving record, and car will play all factor in to how much you pay per month. Obviously, those with speeding tickets or DUIs will pay a lot more than those with clean records. Insurance companies will also often charge more money for older cars, which is weird. I had a 2002 Subaru Forester that crapped out on me, and I got a 2005 Subaru Forester to replace it, and my insurance premium magically was $20 less each month. Same insurance plan, same provider- a newer car made it less expensive. Unfortunately you’re not going to have an answer until you actually give a company your details.

7. Do your research. Choose a couple companies that you like and either go online or call a representative to ask about their discounts and rates. Tell them you’re just “conducting initial research” so that they don’t pressure you into signing a contract. Make sure to have your driver’s license ready when you call, that way they can run numbers for you and give you an exact dollar amount of what you would pay per month on their plan.

Good luck!
