I have actively been trying to eat differently and move more to lose weight for the better part of the last five years.

And yet SUDDENLY now that I am getting married in eight months, any time I happen to decline a pastry or eat a lunch consisting of chicken, broccoli and rice (which I really enjoy, by the way) people feel the need to say something about how I must be “sweating for that wedding!” or “trying to fit into that dress!” Or, even worse, when I have a piece of chocolate in my hand, “Careful, you need to fit into your dress!”

NEWSFLASH: I am purposefully NOT associating my health and fitness goals with my upcoming wedding.

NEWSFLASH: My dress looks fucking amazing on me at the size I am now. That’s why I bought it??!

NEWSFLASH: I can imagine nothing worse than extreme dieting in the months leading up to what is supposed to be one of the happiest days of my life. ALSO, the last thing I want is to look one way in my wedding photos, gain a bunch of weight because that weight wasn’t lost in a sustainable way in the first place, and then hardly recognize myself later on when I look back at those photos.

The pressure that is automatically put on people who have upcoming weddings is ridiculous - diet culture at its worse. Other people probably feel differently about this and that’s fine. If you want to use your wedding as motivation, cool. But we shouldn’t assume that people are trying to lose weight for a wedding unless they talk about it first.

I’m not losing weight for my wedding, I’m losing weight for the rest of my life.

The fact that Mino and Seungyoon were directly involded in composing and writing ‘’Really Really’ amazes me. It’s a great song and it has such a unique and beautiful sound. Winner totally deserves every single stream and download they have gotten this year, which is a great accomplishment for a boy group. I don’t care about what award shows say, Really Really is THE song of the year. YG artists are indeed mindblowing.

1290. we were talking about food to bring for a holiday party in my class and i said i’d bring these natural juice sodas that had less calories than normal soda and everybody just said, “oh well calories don’t matter” and “i don’t care?? it’s just soda” like it wasn’t a big deal. i know i bother people with all my talk about calories but it amazes me still that so many look past that??? i don’t understand.

Nothing can really encompass you. You are an ethereal, otherworldly being, all of your artwork and creations a smattering of stars on a black backdrop, each shining brighter than the last. You yourself are full of universes, full of galaxies, so full of potential, and everything about you never ceases fo amaze me. I look up at the night sky, and I gaze in reverence at the twinkling lights, something only Bhagavan, Allah, God could have dreamt. I look up and I see you.

THIS LEGIT MADE ME CRY HHHHHJJDJG ,, I have no word s AaaaAA aaaaa a oh gosh I feel so weak ;;;;/////;;;; !! Thank u so much anon ,, whheezes grossly

Homework analysis :P

First, I’m quite simply blown away. His talent for writing songs consistently amazes me. His voice is probably the best I’ve ever heard it and it soothes my soul in a way few artists manage to do.

Foolish Thing gives me some pause, as on the surface, it appears to be about the situation he found himself in when he started on Glee. And, it may very well be, but I could also see this being before Glee. I’m choosing to explore the easier explanation and it’s about just falling hard almost immediately for someone and other people telling them it was a stupid idea and would never last, but they couldn’t stay away from one another.

IDAD well…yes, we all know it is his mom’s favorite song, but I think the consensus is that it’s about his current situation and how people are trying to hold him down and steal his dreams.

Going Nowhere - I know this is the one many are struggling with, and my take is a little different on this one. I feel like he is saying the relationship everyone thinks he is in is going nowhere and the pronoun change is deliberate but it means that he, Darren, is saying it’s over (meaning, of course, the PR relationship.)

I Don’t Mind  and The Day the Dance is Over - these are his love songs to C, and I don’t really have to say anything other than read the lyrics. This is a man that is committed to this crazy, improbable, all consuming love that he stumbled into and he’s not going to ever let anything get in the way of the most precious thing in his life. It’s the kind of love that doesn’t come along often and if you’re lucky enough to find it, you grab on and don’t let go, no matter who or what tries to tell you it’s wrong or you’re too young, or any of that other nonsense to try and discredit your relationship.


We did a little photo shoot on my birthday last week and I can’t stop looking at these pictures. This black love is too real sometimes and he amazes me. I’ve never considered myself to be highly religious but I have no doubt in my mind that God took his time and created this man specifically for me and no one else. It sounds extreme but if the rest of my life isn’t with him, then I don’t want it. I just to share these cuz we look damn good lmao

I’m not the one who’s so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I wanna be here again
And I don’t remember why I came

Thanks to the help of @discipleofhethiss and @warriorwaheda Xen’aji is in the process of becoming a follower of Hethiss himself! A venomblade dedicated to his loa. He’s changed so much from his original concept, when I think about it, it simply amazes me how much a character can develop through roleplay even if it’s few and far between. To everyone that I’ve had the pleasure to roleplay with as Xen as my muse, I thank you. <3 

Falsettos is such a beautiful musical and I love it so much.

I honestly love this musical with all my heart. It’s crazy to think about it. How stumbling upon it changed my life.

And I mean that. It has brought me so much joy, has helped me push past some of my darkest times. It’s upstanding message of love is beyond words to me at this point. The lyrics now woven into my heart will always stay with me and teach me lessons throughout my life.

There are very few things that have been able to have this affect. Yes, there are musical I love and enjoy, but none that I cherish and love as much as I do Falsettos.

Not to mention, it has brought me many friends too. The community of Falsettos fans are such amazing, talent and kind people. United through how much we all love this musical.

The point I’m trying to make here is that I really love Falsettos.

That is all.

Polycistic ovary syndrome update

So as it turns out, I am insulin resistant. Carbs and sugar do not react in my body like they should. Insulin is basically running rampant in my body, which has no idea what to do with it.

It is why weight has been a struggle for me my whole life, and now hopefully things can only go up (or down if you’re counting the scale. Lol) from here.

I am now on a cocktail of vitamins/supplements and herbs, I have been doing a ton of research, as well as working with my doctor who has also prescribed me with Metformin, which is supposed to help regulate insulin, and in turn, my hormones.

I still haven’t gotten a period this month, but I had one last month, which is god damn near a miracle for me.

So far by doing this, I have lost 7 pounds in about a month. This is pretty amazing to me, as I haven’t had to do too much, other than taking these supplements that are supposed to help with directing the insulin and sugar and carbs in my body to where they need to go. PCOS is a bitch.

I am now currently trying to change my diet, and I don’t think that it’s going so well. I’m still learning so I will get there, but for now, I am relying heavily on bean soup. LOL. I’m really bad at binge eating, and the foods that I binge eat, are usually foods that send me into a bloat induced rage.

Try going somewhere and asking for a low carb, gluten-free, vegan dish, and tell me how it goes. That is what I’ve been dealing with. 🙄🤷🏽‍♀️😭

There is currently no cure for PCOS, but with proper diet, exercise, and supplementation… I should be able to keep it at bay. Lord have mercy.


After Sage got the address for us, it was only a matter of us figuring out when we could get out to Caramel Creek. I was along for the ride, no matter how much that terrified me. Glimmer was amazing at calming me down, of course, but it was still scary to say the least. With all the excitement on her part, the subject of the kiss never came up, which was simultaneously a relief and stressful. Gosh, I confused even myself.

True and pure friendship blossoms in the most unlikely of friends

Two hearts sweet and innocently bared, most people will never understand

Amazing and unexpected for me as it is for you.

Our instant connection so strong

You fill me with light and hope and oh so much joy.

We laugh and we learn from each other

Share our hopes and dreams and our nightmares and pains

Our music and our love of words

So our friendship blossoms more every day as does our hope for each other’s happiness.


For my dear friend @lebinem-seeker

Lost and Found Masterlist

Six Months Later…

Dean rounded the corner into the kitchen only to find Sam sitting in the same spot he was in last night when he went to bed. His head was down on the table, his tablet held loosely in one hand with his phone in the other, and he was out cold. Dean rolled his eyes and strolled over to the coffee pot, making sure to be as loud as possible when he began making his coffee.

The second Dean grabbed a coffee cup and not-so-gently placed it onto the table next to his brother, Sam jolted awake and quickly wiped the saliva from the corner of his mouth.

“Morning, sunshine,” Dean grinned, pouring coffee into his cup before he sat down. “Have you moved since last night?”

“No,” Sam grumbled, rubbing the sleep from his eyes. “I have to stay awake so if she calls, I’ll be there. I just need some coffee.” Sam got up and reached for the coffee pot but he nearly fell over at the exertion.

Dean sighed and shook his head, helping his brother sit back down in his seat. “Sammy, it’s been six months. She’s-”

“Enough, Dean. I don’t need the lecture,” Sam interrupted.

The Reylo fam is so supportive and sweet, you guys make me happy. Thanks for making me feel welcome. :’)

I’ve been around for a while as a silent spectator, so I’ve never engaged with other Reylos or posted my own work. But it amazes me how constant and steadfast and creative this fandom is, and how crazy brilliant and talented many of us are.

For all the crap that gets thrown our way, the writers and artists among us continue to come up with some of the best works of fiction and art I’ve had the privilege to read and see. It’s comforting, really, that our patience is finally paying off.

Backyard Foraging Finds Recap

It never ceases to amaze me just how many varieties of edible and or practical “weeds” spring up in our small backyard year after year. For this reason, we rarely mow our lawn in a single year. The wild plants offers our chickens tasty treats and the pollinators a reliable source of sugar. We eat some of the greens as salad and even dry and storage others for later usage. Here’s my running list of the edible and practical weeds that I have “identified” from the zone 7a yard…so far, because I know there are so many more I’ve missed. What’s in your yard? 

  1. Dead Nettles
  2. Chickweed
  3. Dandelion
  4. Lambsquarter
  5. Purslane
  6. Dayflower
  7. Poor Man’s Pepper
  8. Plaintain
  9. Wood Sorrel
  10. Clover
  11. Field Garlic

Please note, I am NOT a foraging or botanical expert, so do not relay on my information for identification or health benefits. I take personal responsibility when foraging. Always be sure about what you are touching and putting into your mouth as many plants are toxic. Don’t touch or consume anything in the wild if you are uncertain of its identification. I forage comfortably from my own yard because I know what went into my garden.
