this always calms me down

Morgan: There you are, I was looking everywhere for you! Do you mind if I join you?

August: Go ahead.

Morgan: I don’t know why I didn’t think to check the beach first, whenever I’m upset the beach always calms me down. I figured that would be the same for you too.

August: I just had to clear my mind…

Morgan: So did Kian say anything to you?

August: He said a lot of things to me. Why do you think I’m down here? If I had stayed in that situation I would’ve beaten his face in.

Morgan: Yeah…Kian is like that to literally everybody, such an asshole.

August: If he’s such a jerk then why do you hang out with him? Why are you two even friends?

Morgan: Well it’s kind of a long story but Kian’s life is basically shit. It has been hard since he was little, his mom’s a pothead and his dad is in prison so he doesn’t really have a family..so as dumb as it may sound we’re kinda like a family to him, ya know? Like the family he never had..and yeah he treats people like shit and makes them feel bad but I’m guessing because he was treated like that too that’s his only way of dealing with his pain…

August: …..

Morgan: I still wish he wasn’t a dick about it though.

August: Yeah…

Morgan: You okay loner boy?

August: Kinda, I guess…can I uh..can I ask you something?

Morgan: Of course. :)

August: Are you…dating him?

Morgan: Who Kian? Fuck no! I’d rather drink bleach! Why? Did he say we were dating?

August: Yeah…

Morgan: [laughs] That’s a joke!

August: And another thing…

Morgan: Uh-huh?

August: Do you think I’m clingy?

Morgan: What? No! I told you don’t believe the things Kian says.

August: I know, but when you have someone in your ear telling you all these things it’s kinda hard.

Morgan: Well no, I don’t think you’re clingy, okay? [smiles]

August: Okay. [smiles] Hey, what happened to your shirt?

Morgan: Oh! I was running around this place looking for you I got hot. [laughs] So what do you say? Wanna head back to the party?

August: Not really, it’s too loud and there are too many people…

Morgan: Well yeah it’s a party after all and half the school is here.

August: I like it down here by the water…with you. [blushes]

Morgan: Okay, I guess we can sit here for 10 more minutes. :)

anonymous asked:

How long have you been drawing?

Well, this may sound cliche, but literally as soon as I could hold a pencil I was drawing every day! It’s always been instinctual for me, helps me calm down, helps me focus, and helps me understand how I’m feeling. My uncle got me into painting when I was about four or five, and ever since elementary I have been obsessed with comics and cartoons. It’s just always been a part of me.

anonymous asked:

Okay - here's a pre-S7 question to help things along. You know the red carpet interview clip where Adam and Blake are asked if it true that Gwen is going to be a judge and Blake is SO extra that Adam has to tell him to calm down because he's sweating already? That always confuses me because he often admits he wasn't all that familiar with her music. Do you think that all of that extraness was caused by an earlier judges meeting? Love at first sight maybe? I wouldn't doubt it...

Ummmm I’m obsessed with this idea. And I am going to believe it’s true. (I actually do think this is in part true, but I never thought that he could’ve already met her 👀).

However I also think most people in the US especially know who Gwen is & what she looks like, what she’s done on a basic level– no doubt, solo w/ hollaback girl, maybe they know she is known for her fashion (especially in 2014). So even if he didn’t know a ton of her music he probably still at least knew she was like the ultimate cool chick/an a-lister. So Blake was probably just like the people you see in social media comments when a random person meets her at their local Mexican restaurant. Their friends want to know omg was she nice? As pretty in person? Like that.

This is sort of a tangent but I’ve always thought it was interesting how the way she presents herself and her actual personality are so different. Like the woman smizing in fashion magazines seems so far removed from the dumbass talking to backyard free range chickens or using baby talk on her food. And that was especially true in early 2014 when she was just in the dawn of her new life of seeing in color.

What The Signs Mean to Me

Aries: My very first best friend. I love how you never let anything hold you down. You’re brave, artistic and a bit immature, but that gives you that child like flair. I hope you’re happy wherever you are, and I’m sorry things had to end the way they did. 


Taurus: Everything comes back to you. The rock solid foundation of my life. A beautiful chaos, art in every sense of the word. I love how you love, and I’m sorry for your pain. No one can find your light for you, but when you do you illuminate the lives of everyone around you. 


Gemini: You little rascal, mischief unmanaged. You don’t always have a plan, but at least you have a pla-. The way you navigate the world with your emotional intuition makes me want to be more like you, always true to yourself no matter what. Learn to forgive and let go, your life will be so much easier. 


Cancer: You always do what you need, and what you need is not always legal. You always showed me kindness, and calmed me when I was restless. Your love was brotherly, and I hope the fog lifts over your life soon. Something tells me it already has. 


Leo: I hate that I love you. I hate how powerless I am around you, how all logic goes out the window and I’m standing in front of you, naked, with nothing to offer you but my heart. But here’s the thing, everybody loves you. And the way you look at me tells me you’ll wait for me, but I’m terrified that you’ll leave me behind. You deserve all the happiness in the world. Please don’t lose sight of who you are. 


Virgo: You amaze me. How you handle everything so effortlessly, surrounded by your adoring friends. Sometimes I can’t believe we’re related. You will always be better than me. But in those moments when you don’t feel perfect, please know that you’re never alone, and that we will always be here for you. I swear you’re not human, you are an angel on earth who’s just visiting.


Libra: You are the coolest, most chill fucking person. I’m so grateful for everything you’ve done for me, you are one of those rare people who are truly selfless. Your humour is everything, and how you always seem so at ease calms me down on the most stressful days. You love the world and it loves you right back. 


Scorpio: You know me better than I know myself. Your soul will be forever wrapped around mine, co-existing. You taught me what it means to be a friend and what it means to be the enemy. I hope you realize what your power is some day, because your wrath is beyond unparalleled. 


Sagittarius: If I would die tomorrow I would be content, knowing that I truly experienced what it means to share a bond with another human being. Why the universe decided to have us cross paths I will never know, but one thing I know for sure is that I would not be me without you. You are a nomad, child of the world. You searched it and found home. But it wasn’t easy, and it took time and a lot of pain but it was all worth it. You give me hope. That no matter how far down I fall, something beautiful will rise from the ruins. You just have to believe. 


Capricorn: With you I can just be myself. You never judge me, you see me when I don’t see myself. When we’re together hours pass by in comfortable silence. Or, they used to. You never say much, but when you do it’s always pure genius. I wish you would be kinder to yourself. I know I’m responsible for your broken heart but you never made the burden mine. I will always respect you. I just hope you’ll someday let someone thaw your frozen heart and let yourself be happy. 


Aquarius: You are everything I want to be. You are absolutely hypnotizing. I never know if you’re flirting with me or just being friendly. An ice queen, everyone always envies the one that has your love, even if it’s just for a night. Eloquence and elegance, and so much passion. It is scary how well you do what you do, and how your body moves with such grace. Everybody is intimidated by you, and yet you treat everyone as an equal. Your insecurities are crazy to me, if I were you I definitely wouldn’t be this humble. 


Pisces: You’re two faced and completely insane, but you’re such a bad bitch wearing either mask that I can’t help but worship you. Your voice could stop wars, and you can make the most absurd things sound completely reasonable. I wish you wouldn’t take everything so personally, sometimes it gets tiring to walk on eggshells around you. Empathy is a virtue worth cultivating. Make sure your integrity and morals are well placed, because if they are nobody can stop you. Not even if they wanted to. 


This was originally a post by @kanyenoodles, and I really wanted to make my own version of what the signs mean to me.

How focusing (aka. not multi-tasking) changed my study life

I had heard it occasionally - that multi-tasking was actually not good for the quality of whatever task I was doing. It made sense, but I loved mult-tasking so much. It gave me the illusion of productivity

Until I actually tried focusing for a while, did I realise how much I was actually losing by multi-tasking -  educationally and emotionally. Scrolling through tumblr during boring parts of a lecture seemed fine, since there were notes and it probably wouldn’t be tested in such depth anyway. Eating, while scrolling through social media, while watching a tv show, while messaging someone on facebook seemed ‘productive’. 

It turns out it was the opposite. It may seem fine, and at times it may actually be okay, but what matters is the principle. Dedicating your whole being to one task, focusing on it, produces much better results. It’s a quality over quantity thing. It also helped to calm me down emotionally - I used to always feel rushed, like there was so many things to do but not enough time to do them. Focusing on one task at a time - though it was hard at first - helped slow me down because I did everything properly, and didn’t have the feeling like I needed to go back and do things over again. 

Focusing on one thing wholly is also a form of practising mindfulness. Mindfulness ‘meditation’ isn’t something that requires you to sit down and meditate - it can be applied to our daily life. 

Since I started practising this mindful skill of focus, I’ve become much calmer, it’s been so much easier to stay on top of my work load and meet deadlines, I don’t feel rushed, I don’t feel unprepared or unorganised, and I do more quality work than when I used to multi-task.

There are times for multi-tasking and times for focus. Find the right balance and enjoy the task in front of you.

Headcanon

I headcanon that Sasuke might be somewhat of a jumpy person, in his later pre-teen to teen years. Jumpiness and hypervigilance are both common effects of PTSD, so is anxiety, so I can imagine Sasuke getting a little jumpier after the massacre and the more things progress. He flinches when someone moves too fast near him, he starts at the sound of thunder, he jumps whenever a crash or other loud sound resounds near him. It’s an integrated part of his personality that he doesn’t notice since it’s been that way as long as he can remember. He only notices when people point it out in such a mocking manner. Statements such as “Haha, what’s the matter, you scared?” or “Would you fuckin’ relax, I’m not even doing anything!” are among some of the things Sasuke’s heard. 

When he’s at home, after several years without any place to call home, Sasuke thinks the habit might be gone. He has no reason to jump, to feel nervous. He’s now an adult (if eighteen is an adult, he doesn’t feel any different from being seventeen) and out of the clutches of his childhood. He’s past it. It isn’t until Naruto happens to slam a cabinet door a little too loud that the old habit rears its ugly head, and Sasuke jumps as the sound jars through him. His eyes close and he prepares for the biting, albeit harmless comment he’s sure Naruto has brimming at his lips. But instead, Sasuke feels a gentle hand resting reassuringly on his shoulder.

“Hey, it’s okay. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to startle you.”

Fighting Panic

Requested: I was wondering if I could request a caring Shawn one where maybe you two get into a fight and you leave and then you have a panic attack or something and you call him and even though you two were fighting he still comes over and cares for you? Sorry if that didn’t make sense lol

Masterlist

Your name: submit What is this?

~~~

“Stop, y/n.” Shawn says, his voice full of anger. “You can’t keep holding it against me. It’s my career, my job, don’t you understand?”

You swallow hard, trying to keep your emotions in check. “I’m not holding it against you, Shawn. I just need to know you’re not forgetting about me!”

“I’m not, I don’t know why you would say that!” He says, his voice just as loud and terrifying as it was a minute ago. You can’t match his tone. You don’t know how to scream back at him, and you don’t want to.

“You’re always busy, and even when you’re not, you’re thinking about all the things you need to get done, which I get, but I feel like you don’t even remember that I’m here, that I’m your girlfriend.” You reply, honestly.

“How could I forget, y/n? I can’t forget, and I don’t.” He spits back.

You only wait a beat before replying, still trying to absorb his last words, “Do you want to?” You ask, your voice full of fear and sadness.

having to apologize for or ask if you’re being too much is the 10th layer of hell tbh

Mulder: It’s not worth it, Scully.
Scully: What?
Mulder: I want you to go home.
Scully: Oh, Mulder, I’m going to be fine.
Mulder: No, I’ve been thinking about it. Looking at you tonight, holding that baby … knowing everything that’s been taken away from you. A chance for motherhood and your health and that baby. I think that … I don’t know, maybe they’re right.
Scully: Who’s right?
Mulder: The FBI. Maybe what they say is true, though for all the wrong reasons. It’s the personal costs that are too high. There so much more you need to do with your life. There’s so much more than this. There has to be an end, Scully.
