this going to be a fun 15 months

art tips post

for all the artists following me

  • draw fast. it’ll look messy for a long time but you’ll improve faster than if you spend 4 hours on every drawing
  • if you draw in pencil and have a habit of erasing all of your mistakes, try drawing in pen or marker. i know it’s scary but it’ll help in the long run (i’m speaking from experience)
  • try different methods and mediums but don’t worry about mastering any of them, just have fun
  • if you’re not rich, buy art supplies from the dollar store, not the art store (seriously. i go through a sketchbook about once a month and i’d rather spend $4 on one than $15)
  • there’s no wrong way to learn. you can copy other people’s art if you want to, just don’t post it
  • DO NOT worry about having a consistent style. do not. just draw however you want
  • if you want to make original characters then do it. don’t worry about if they’re original, or a good design, or if they have an accompanying story. make sonic ocs. do it. it’s fun and it’s not hurting anyone
  • try not to kill your back. stand up and stretch once in a while
  • make a folder and save all of your favorite arts for inspiration 
  • draw from life. draw your dog. draw your teachers. draw your desk. draw your own hands (seriously that’s the best way to get better at drawing hands)
  • in general, drawing from life or a photo is better than drawing from a diagram
  • draw whatever you want. draw youtubers if you like youtubers. draw undertale if you like undertale. when i was a kid i drew nothing but shadow the hedgehog and horses. everyone deserves to draw what they want without being mocked, and if people start making fun of you, block them and keep drawing
  • don’t expect to get any notes at first. don’t let it discourage you. if you want validation go show your art to your mom or your friends or your teacher or your grandma
  • take breaks, but don’t give up.

BPD Awareness Month

After a month of ramen noodle memes, it’s finally May…which is also BPD awareness month! And I’m here as your local diagnosed Borderline to break some of the stigma associated with this personality disorder, offering up 15 fun facts, stigma myths, and helping you better understand any Borderlines in your life ☺

1. BPD most commonly develops from severe trauma and is often a product of other diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, and bipolar disorder. So there is a lot of stuff going on in our heads, all of the time.

2. BPD and Bipolar disorder are NOT the same thing. Bipolar is characterized by extreme highs and lows that last for a few days or more, sometimes without a discernable trigger. BPD mood swings occur much more rapidly, are more noticeably triggered, and typically only last between a few minutes and a few hours.

3. Borderlines all experience their symptoms in different ways, and not all Borderlines experience the same symptoms. A common misconception is that all Borderlines are manipulative- this is false. Manipulation is a symptom of BPD, but not of all Borderlines.

4. Borderlines experience emotions at TEN TIMES the intensity that normal people do. So if it seems like we’re overreacting or are falling too fast…believe me, we know, but we can’t help it. Please be patient with us and communicate in a straight forward manner. We wish we knew how to turn it off, because it actually becomes physically painful.

5. Because we experience emotions at such a high intensity, Borderlines are some of the most caring, loyal, and generous friends/partners. You will never feel unloved if you are close to a Borderline.

6. Also, we cry a lot. Like…a LOT. We cry over everything whether we’re happy or sad or scared or excited. We cry a lot. There’s nothing you can do. Just let it happen.

7. Borderlines often close themselves off about things that are bothering them, and don’t ask for the things they need because they don’t want to be a burden. If you notice a Borderline bottling up, it’s important to assure them that you are there, without pushing them. Extra affection never hurts either (we love affection).

8. If a Borderline Splits*** on you, it is important to express how their words and actions made you feel, but also important to word it in a constructive way rather than aggressive (see: item #6). Most Borderlines are extremely self-aware and will get over whatever made them Split quickly and realize what they’ve done and apologize. In most cases, this isn’t an act of manipulation, but a frantic effort to make up for an episode they couldn’t control. Again, we require a lot of patience. Know that we are trying.

9. Borderlines dissociate frequently. In most cases we appreciate a lot of attention and affection when that happens to bring us back down to earth.

11. Borderlines love attention in general but are too anxious to ask for it. Attention is to Borderlines as the sun is to sunflowers. We perk right up and turn into happy beans. WE WANT IT ALL.

12. If a Borderline asks for space, give us space. But be reassuring that you’re not going to leave.

13. Borderlines are terrified of abandonment, and will often leave before they can get left. If they use the phrase “it’s not you, it’s me.” I promise you, it is not you. It is them. We’re waiting to find the right person who doesn’t let us self-sabotage everything. But we also hate feeling trapped so honestly idfk, good luck trying to figure out where your Borderline is at.

14. PATIENCE. PATIENCE IS KEY. But also, you can’t be nice all the time. Borderlines like to pick fights, and sometimes we need you to fight us over stupid little stuff. I guarantee you we’ll get over it within 10 minutes, but sometimes you just have to let us get the fighting mood out of our system since we’re actually wimpy crybabies who couldn’t hurt a fly.

15. If we’re talking about things that are going on in our head, we don’t always need a response or want words of encouragement or need you to try to fix everything. Chances are we are already working it out in our heads, and we just need you to listen so it’s not just rumbling around up there. Validation is appreciated. However, just saying “your feelings are valid” can be taken more as insensitive than reassuring if not followed up with an interpretation of your understanding.

I hope these were informative and/or helpful to those who took the time to read through entirely; just by reading you’re helping to #endthestigma

***Splitting: a term in the BPD community to reference the black-and-white thinking used as a defense mechanism with Borderlines. Usually referencing the flip from the idealization of an FP** to devaluation.

**FP: “Favorite Person”, term used to reference the person a Borderline seeks the most attention and validation from.

How long has Bum been Sangwoo's prisoner?

  So I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I’ve seen a couple people make estimates of anywhere from around a month to 5 months. As of chapter 17, I put my estimate around 9-15 weeks judging by the healing of Bum’s legs.

  Just a warning, this is going to be a long post, and kinda technical (sorry). I’m referencing “Forensic Anthropology, Current Methods and Practice 2014″. All images are taken from Lezhin and are property of Koogi.

 I had a lot of fun writing this, but it is more of a thought experiment than anything. I don’t know how much thought Koogi put into Bum’s healing time and this comic is a work of fiction. Still, if you want my thoughts continue reading :>

 This is ended up being hella long so I’ll put it under the cut. Here are my thoughts:

anonymous asked:

Any convention headcanons for the bros? Who'd be cosplaying, in the artist alley, attending panels, how'd they deal with LineCons for everything, etc? Lol. Thank you!

Fun fact, I’m going to my first con at the end of this month. I still gotta buy tickets I keep forgetting to oh crap. 

Noctis will be cosplaying in the strangest of costumes. *stares at his festival attire does this boy know style at all? He’s self conscious about cosplaying thinking people will think he’s a dork… but he does it anyway. He definitely does matching themed cosplays with Prompto. For example, if Prompto is Superman you can bet Noctis will be Batman. Noctis is definitely most interested in the artists that come to the conventions. He spends his money on exclusive art work and comic books.

Prompto would be doing it all. I’m pretty sure he has purchased a full access pass. You can bet he will be at the convention each and every day it’s in town from open to close. He will definitely dress up as a different character each and everyday. Regardless of Gender. Low key imagining him cosplaying as Snow White right now what is happening. He will spend all of his money. There will not be a single cent left when he returns home. Long story short, the Regalia is filled to the brim just from merchandise Prompto has purchased.

Gladiolus will definitely cosplay. He only has one costume though. Never bothers to make or purchase a new one. No matter how many times he goes back to convention over the years. Gladio won’t spend his hard earned cash on anything but food, but he enjoys browsing merchandise. 

Ignis is the mom that holds everything for everyone. He’s the one that must set a designated place and time for everyone to meet back up at. He does not cosplay and he really doesn’t spend his money, but he really enjoys going to panels. He likes listening to people talk about what they do, especially when they are passionate.

Oh, and tags! @ruth-hamilton-delrio @hopeandlovelastlonger @yayhamletnonstop I think you all have at some poiont told me that you wanted to be tagged in my stuff. So here goes. Just tell me if you want me to stop. Peace, love you! <3


You knew it the moment you woke up. The feeling of a sore throat and a nose filled with snot had knocked you back into the bed before, but not like this. This was accompanied by a fever, and the fact that it felt like someone had kicked you in the face while you were asleep. To put it on paper, the february cold that had plagued the workplace for weeks had finally caught up with you too.

Since two months ago, you had been working as an assistant to the head of the costume department at the Richard Rogers theatre, the home to the (according to you) best musical of the decade, Hamilton.

“Jenny, it’s ok. The professor said he’d drop the lowest grade.” You took the seat next to her and consoled your friend. “To be honest, I think everyone did terrible on this assignment.” The deep masculine voice caught your attention. Looking up from your seat, your eyes met the tall, broad man. Pushing up his glasses, as his face still held no expression as he continued, “Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.”. You had never really cared for him, he was one of the smartest people in your class and made sure everybody knew it. Especially you. Furrowing your brows, you tilted your head as if you were trying to figure something out. Never had he ever attempted in any type of sympathetic actions. “Really?” Jenny sniffled. “Yeah, this is the only time I would say this but listen to Matt.” you chimed in, earning a laugh from Jenny. If you weren’t giving Jenny your undivided attention, you might’ve seen the small smirk that ghosted on Matt’s lips.

February progress report

Actual progress woohoo!!!

My job has been so crazy lately that I’ve had to fight hard for every minute of writing time, but I did pretty well, all things considered. I’m also feeling tons better, health-wise.

Probably the best news is that I finished the first of the three consequences/denouement scenes, and started the second one. Merlin has returned to Camelot. I think I’ll keep going with this second denouement scene for now, and finish the Michaelsmount branch later.

I’ve updated the word count page. I wrote about 9000 words in February (which is seriously a victory considering I’ve been putting in an extra 12-15 hours a week at my job). I added a little bit to the Morgana and Lancelot prequels, which was fun. The prequels are inching along very slowly, but I always enjoy coming back to them when I’m too brain-dead to code. I’ll probably try to finish them once I’ve finished Book II.

So it was a reasonably good month… here’s hoping for another one!

Yesterday at Star Wars Celebration they showed the premiere of Star Wars Rebels season 4 (”Heroes of Mandalore”) and there’s a episode summary here. There’s a tiny, very insignificant detail regarding Hera/ Kanan (that I won’t consider a spoiler) mentioned, and I quote:

Hera was more concerned than usual and Kanan openly wondered if there was something more to her concerns, while acknowledging that theit relationship isn’t solely platonic.

Ok, so Hera was more concerned than usual. This combined with her monologue at the beginning of the trailer makes me feel that the Hera/ Kanan baby theory more convincing. 

Maybe Hera was very early in her pregnancy in the season premiere (like she just found out), prompting her to be more worried/ concerned for her child’s father than usual. And in the 2-part series finale, the episode will begin with Hera’s monologue, then the final battle will be shown, we will see Kanan die (or at least Hera and Kanan seeing each other for the last time), then at the end of the episode (also the end of the series) it turned out that Hera was telling the tales of her fight against the Empire to her child (we know from Forces of Destiny that Hera survived till Battle of Endor, making her supposed child ¾ years old around Endor), so it’s totally understandable if she told her child this story (the story about how her group of rebels ends) before Endor.

Are there any issues that make this theory unlikely? Sure there are:

1. Hera was very adamant in A New Dawn that she wanted to focus on the fight against the Empire that she didn’t have time for romance (very much like the “No attachment” code of the Jedi). She might develop a romantic relationship with Kanan around Rebels, but accept to give birth to a child in the middle of a Galatic Civil War is just too much.

BUT Shara Bey was also a pilot in the Rebellion and she still gave birth to Poe Dameron right before Battle of Hoth. Obviously Shara might not have Hera’s determination but it doesn’t mean that female pilots never carried children during the War whatsoever.

2. Let’s face it, this is an animated shows on Disney XD (which is even more kid-friendly that TCW on Cartoon Network), I’m not sure they’re willing to show children born out of wedlock (imagine the complaining letters/ emails/ phone calls from religious groups).

I also thought about boys (and men) going “Ew pregnant woman” which makes Disney unwilling to show a pregnant Hera, but since Season 4 only has 15 episodes (with the first 2 and last 2 episodes likely shown as 2-parters), which means it will air for 3 months and can totally cover 3 months in-universe, Hera doesn’t need to be visibly pregnant in the finale.

I know the theory is quite unlikely, but it’s fun to speculate anyway (imagine a Force-sensitive human/ Twi’lek hybrid taught by Master Luke Skywalker only to be killed years later by his/ her fellow Padawan Ben Solo, or maybe he/ she along with Ben killed other Padawans to join the Knight of Wren which was founded by Ezra Bridger played by Benicio del Toro)

The tragic backstory: 

 My dad is getting married in May. I have to drive through three states to get to the wedding. Thursday night (4/27) the plumbing in my house decided to call it quits. A blockage in the main drain pipe (FUN!). Today we learned that said pipe was replaced with the Cheapest Materials In Existence at some point, and it’s cracked and could collapse any time in the next six months (DOUBLE FUN!). 

 So this is the standard artist’s cry for help. Hire me to draw for you so I can go to my dad’s wedding AND have functional plumbing! You get art. Everyone wins.

Let's talk BUDGETING

Ah yes, the least glamorous part of being a sugar baby, the fiscal responsibility. When many of us get into this lifestyle, we picture living fancy, spending without a care, and getting everything we want. Well, welcome to the real world. My allowance is $5000 a month, and if I bought all of the shoes and bags and clothes my heart desired, I could spend all that money easily. But that would be silly, because as nice as shoes and bags and clothes are, they aren’t the main reason I got into this lifestyle and they certainly won’t pay the bills if I ever get desperate.

The thing is, I suck at budgeting and spending money. I tend to use it up to quickly and then I’m desperate for money around the end of the month. But a SD can drop you on a dime, so this is obviously not ideal. So I’m implementing a strict budget for myself for the year and here’s what I’m doing so you can too.

  1. Set aside half of your allowances- I know, not fun at all. But it’s important to try to save at least half of your allowances. Buy a safe and stash half in there every month. For me, this is my “travel-car-life after college-rainy day” fund. I’m saving towards specific goals, but I also know that money is there should I ever need it.
  2. Give yourself a “weekly allowance”- Take your monthly allowance and break it up into weekly increments, but not just for the month. Try to break it up into 4 months worth of weeks. For example, when I get my $5000, $3000 will go into savings. Then, I’m breaking up the money into 13 envelopes with $125 dollars in each of them, which will last me from now until May. This is my money I can use for groceries, booze, going out with friends, basically anything I need for the week. Is $125 a week glamorous? Not really, but I can comfortably live on it and it gives me 13 weeks to find a new SD if my currant one decides to dump me for whatever reason. I will then add to each weekly folder. So next month, I’ll put another $125 in each of the remaining envelopes, and I’ll have $250 to spend every week. My weekly “goal” is $300, so the month after that I’ll add another $50 to each remaining envelope, then I’ll put $100 in 15 new envelopes to save for summer and repeat.
  3. Budget for Shopping and Big Purchases- If you were paying attention above, you may have realized that 3000+(13x125)=4625, not $5000. That’s because I budgeted $375 to go shopping for the month. Look, shopping is obviously super fun, but walking into a store with your full allowance in hand is just stupid and irresponsible. Bring the amount you budgeted with you and stick to it. Shopping is way more fun when you don’t have “oh no, I shouldn’t have bought all this stuff I wasted so much money” regret. I think ahead to any big purchases I need to make and plan for them. For example, I know I want to get my hair done in March, which is going to be expensive. So I budgeted extra money into March’s “spending” category for that expense.
  4. Roll Your Weekly Money Over- So odds are I won’t be spending my entire weekly budget every single week. What shall one do with this left over money? I’m putting into my “roll-over” envelope, which I will let accumulate. I can do whatever I want with this money. I can add it to the shopping budget for the month, use it to save up for a big purchase, or draw from it (not my savings) if I need a little extra one week.
  5. Get a “bonus” Sugar Daddy for Big Things- Well, technically I already have one, so this is more of a suggestion. To me, a bonus SD is a SD who you see very infrequently, generally due to travel or work. Mine gives me $1500 every time we see each other, which is rare, due to his travel for work, about every 2 months. I view this as “bonus money” and I would use it on a single, large purchase that my monthly budget doesn’t account for, such as a new laptop, phone, expensive bag, etc.
  6. Get you SD to Pay for as Much as Possible- Fucking duh.

Here’s a lineless, grown up APH Liechtenstein with a M-16 rifle,,

Fun fact about me- I held the M16 rifle a few months ago and i think I’m going to learn how to shoot guns the next two years
And I’m not 15 yet this is so cool

Edit: Guns are illegal to carry around in my country but for me its something like a course (?) and the rifle issue is because i was in a uniformed parade, (?) I hope i said it correctly
Still not yet.

So first. Sorry for being gone. My uncut hubby found out about my circ Tumblr and got mad a jealous. I will be on infrequently now to give you all updates on how my adventures in being a circ mom are going ;).

Sooo. After some months of unpeeling my younger sons dick (he’s 15 now) and basically doing foreskin restoration (to his shrunken foreskin) I’ve managed to give him a disgusting dick.
It has some skin overhang and I’ve told him never to retract it even though he wishes he was cut like his older brother (16 now and cut huhh and tight).
The youngest ones sister and brother help me make fun of his now pathetic dick (he likes it don’t worry) and we all complain to his father that it’s not healthy.
He can’t pee properly anymore and the skin is getting tighter each week.
I hope his father will give in soon and let him get circumcised ultra tight and let me turn his pathetic dick into a mans cock!!

PS. Some rules: I never share pictures of me or my family members. So please don’t ask :)

I placed my surfboard in the sand and looked at the sea, todays been the longest day and its only really just begun, I had to work the late shift at work again last night and my boss is a pain in the ass, always wanting something from me, do this, do that. Like what do I look like a piece of shit you can walk on? No, at least I have the weekends off, which gives me two day to relax and enjoy the view of the sea and of course, go for a surf. I’ve been surfing since I can remember my dad used to take me out every Saturday morning, since his death I’ve still gone although his replacement is a pain in my ass i still love her for coming out with me, id rather be with Y/F/N then be alone. 

“What did you want? I have a ham sandwich or cheese before we hit the waves”
I looked over Y/F/N as she leant over the picnic basket, Y/F/N was tall, blonde and blue eyes, you would of thought she actually knew how to surf but she doesn’t, but she’s getting better every time I take her out. She got out the sandwiches and looked up at me.

“Y/N" 

"Mm cheese please”

“Are you sure?”

“You want the cheese don’t you?” I giggled, she tossed me the ham sandwich and sat on the tartan picnic blanket.

“Do you ever get tiered of surfing?” she asked

“How do you get tiered of something you love?”

“Didn’t Derrick get tiered of you?”

I took a bite out of my sandwich at the name of my Ex of nearly 6 months, We’d been together 2 years It was puppy love we’d met in high school he was the new beautiful American boy in a foreign land and he was the classic popular boy with all the girls swooning at him, after about 3 months he asked me out and me being shocked as why he asked me I said yes, turns out that the relationship was a bet which earned him $20 and that for 5 months he’d been cheating on me with his soon to be step-sister, which is disgusting 1. because you don’t cheat on somebody and 2. its practically insets. But after people found out his mum never did marry that guy and he moved far away from here.

“He didn’t really love me though”

“He was a asshole and a pig and he didn’t deserve someone like you sorry for bringing it up”

“Thanks" 

"Hurry up and eat the rest of that and we can go surfing" 

I ate the last piece of my sandwich and stood up wiping off the sand that had already managed to get on my ass. As I looked over the beach it was quite empty apart from a tanned boy reading a book and a elderly couple sitting on deckchairs. As I looked more at the tanned boy the more I recognise him, I’m not sure where from though.

"Y/N c'mon”

I grabbed my surfboard and followed Y/F/N down to the sea


I shook off the water from my hair and undid my wetsuit revealing my blue poka-dot bikini. Nothing attractive really it just something comfortable, and something that if I take of my wetsuit I won’t be stripping down to my birthday suit. I folded my towel around my wetsuit so my bag won’t get soaked and put it in my bag whilst getting out my shorts and t-shirt and putting them over my bikini. Y/F/N was also doing the same. 

“Are you entering the surf competition this year?” She asked

“No I don’t think I should”

“And why not?”

“Because of last year” Last year, the year was awful it was the year i fell off the surfboard and whacked my face against the board whilst doing a trick, after the competition I came 4th and had to get stitches in my nose. 

“But that won’t happen again, history doesn’t repeat itself”

“I’ll think about it”

“Ok well I’m going to go to Dans and I’ll see you tonight at the camp fire”

“Do I have to go” I wined

“Yes and if not I’m going to drag you by your hair”

“How about no”

“Bye Y/N” she giggled

I waved goodbye to Y/F/N as she walked across the road to her boyfriend Dans house, he’s really nice and takes care of Y/F/N, he’s holding the campfire party tonight as he practically lives on the beach, which I wish I could do, unfortunately I live 10 minutes away from the beach and have a small flat in the middle of town, which is the busiest part of any place. 

I grasped hold of my bag and surfboard and walked over to my car. A shitty blue box basically, but thats all I can afford, due to the fact that all I do is surf and theres not really a degree in that. I opened the passenger door to put my bag in but the wind made it slam against the car next to it.

Shit” I said whilst dropping my surfboard and bag to the ground.

I pulled my door away from the other car, hoping that no one had saw as there was a little bit of my blue paint on there red car, I licked my thumb and rubbed it against the blue paint but it seemed to make it worse and it smudged a little and revealed a silver scratch down it. I looked back up and saw no one, I shouldn’t leave it but theres nothing I can do, I turned around going to pick up my bag but I fell into someone’s arms.

“Oh my god I’m so sorry”

“No worries” the man said, I stood back up on my own two feet and looked up at the man, although, these eyes I recognised all too well, the tanned boy on the beach was in fact the boy who went to my high school and was one of my good friends until I started dating Derrick, His name was Calum and boy did puberty hit him hard.

“Calum?”

“Hey Y/N”

“H-How are you, its been so long?”

“Good, apart from I now have a blue scratch on my car”

“This is your car? I’m so so so sorry” I said turning around and closing my car door and leaning against it with my head in my hands.

“I really didn’t mean too it was the wind but I was just putting my bag in the-”

“Y/N! it’s ok I’m getting a new car next week and this is going to the scrap”

“Oh well thats a relief” I sighed

I stood there looking at him, he’s changed a lot since the last time I saw him. His full fringe now turned into the semi quiff. His muscles now defined and tattoos over his arm and chest, which is practically screaming at me as he’s not wearing a shirt.  His brown eyes still warm, a beautiful dark brown colour and more noticeable now he’s not wearing his geeky glasses. He’s also such a beautiful colour and has beautiful golden skin. In a way I missed him and when he used to come round and tutor me, well when I say tutor me I mean we used to make pillow forts even know though we were 15 and supposed to be learning Shakespeare. But it all went, the fun, the laughs and the happiness when Derrick asked me out and Cal used to ignore me, he never wanted to hang out. I tried for months every time i asked him to go somewhere he’d shove it to the side, in the end Derrick told me to stop trying with someone who didn’t care for me anymore.

“Do you need help with your surfboard?" 

"Oh no I’m ok really”

"Ok well I’m going to go, it was nice seeing you”

“C-cal”

“Yeah”

“What are you doing tonight?”

“Nothing, why?”

“Did you want to come to the camp fire party? It on this beach at 7?”

“You want me to come?”

“More than anything" 

"Ok”

I grabbed my surfboard and went round to the back of my car whilst Calum pulled out his car, all i heard was the remains of All time low Backseat serenade as he drove off.

I put my surfboard in the boot and my bag in there too. I got in my car, the green air freshener Y/F/N made me buy after I had eaten a McDonalds filled my nose with a mint flavour, one of them smells that you can actually taste, I’ve been meaning to get read of it but its in the shape of a surfboard and looks pretty cool. I turned the radio on and drove home.


“So that’s why we broke up” I finished explain mine and Derricks break up to Calum

“Well if you’re asking me he’s a dick for doing that to you”

“Yeah”

I looked around the beach and everyone was in there pacts and chatting away, Y/F/N was practically eating her boyfriends face off.  There was a group of girls on the beach dancing to the overly played pop music. However I was sat toasting marshmallows with Calum who arrived in a black button up shirt and black jeans which made him look more attractive then ever, it was hard to take my eyes off him.

”What happened to us?”

“He told me to stay away from you”

“What really?!” I gasped and turned toward Calum. 

“Yeah, after you got together he told me to stay away, so I did”

“Why did you listen to that ass?" 

"Because..h-he told me he’d hurt you if I didn’t, not as in violence but he’d tell you things, that wouldn’t be true not ever, but you seemed so happy with him”

"You shouldn’t have listened”

“I know.. But I was young and stupid”

I looked at the fire in front of us and back at Calum

“Wanna go to my house and build a pillow fort?” Calum laughed and grabbed the packet of marshmallows we were eating

“Let’s go”

The whole journey to my flat I couldn’t keep my eyes of Calum and his jawline mostly, man that could cut a bitch. 

We got to the door and I unlocked it, I went straight to my room and got all the duvets and pillow and ran back into the living room

“I went through you cupboards and found chocolate, cola and ice cream, along with the marshmallows we stole" 

"Great here we go”

We spent a hour building the fort, trying to keep pillows on top of other pillows but failed most of the time so our fort is a few pillows on the floor with the duvet lying across two sofas above us. We managed to eat the rest of the marshmallows and the ice cream had melted by the time we got to it, after the cokes I went and got something a bit stronger.

“I can’t believe I haven’t seen you in three years” I said whilst opening the bottle of beer and passing it to Calum

“I missed you”

”Ive missed you too” I whispered, looking down at the beer

“How’s you love life, anyway? I told you about Derrick what about you?”

“I’m not with anyone”

“Really a guy like you?” I said whilst Calum sat up on his elbow looking over me

“Yeah a guy like me, there’s only one girl that I can’t live without”

“Really who?”

“Selena Gomez” I laughed at him and I smacked his shoulder

“No but really, ever since day one it’s always been her”

“Ever since she went on Disney channel?”

“No I’m not talking about Selena I’m talking about you”

“Me?”

“Yeah you” he mumbled 

I looked up at him and his eyes seem to look genuine, I never thought that he would like me, I didn’t even know I could like him. But the feeling in my stomach tells me otherwise. He lent down and gave me a Eskimo kiss which made me laugh and as did he.

“God you’re a idiot”

I rolled on top of him and leant down 

"I know Cal, I know” I pressed my lips to his, I’ve never felt fireworks, never ever but if this is what fireworks feel like I want more, I swiped my tongue over his lips and he taste like minty-cola. I stopped kissing him and tugged on his bottom lip, smirking at him which made him moan and made me laugh. I moved to his neck, he smelled delicious and I sucked a hickey. His hand grabbed hold of my waist as he tried to grind up into me, which made me moan into his neck.

“Y/N-N please”

“What do you want?" 

“You” I sit up straight and rest my hands on his chest slowly scratching down as I grind on him. 

“As much as I love this” He gets hold of my shirt and pulls it over me and flips us over. 

”I’m Incharge, you don’t know how long I’ve wanted this”

I grabbed hold of erection and slowly palmed him

“I think I have a rough idea”

He leant down and kissed me again as I leant up and unclipped my bra. He started to kiss down my neck sucking hickeys as he went, he got down to my boobs and sucked onto my left nipple whilst his hand massaged my left. 

“F-fuck Calum” I whined 

He moaned which vibrated around my nipple, he took the other nipple into his mouth I was in pure bliss, my hand went into Calums hair and the other too Calums button on his jeans he sat up and took off his jeans and then undid mine. 

“I’ve been waiting for this so long I don’t think I’ll last…”

“It okay I just need you and only you”

He took of my panties and his boxers and reached over to his jeans as he was doing that I leant forward and kitten licked his dick

“Y/N Jesus” I looked up at him and he had his head tilted back and his hand moved into my hair 

“Y/N” he whined as I took him into my mouth, he let out a few curse words before tugging me off him

“I-I w-wanna fuck you”

I leant back “then do it” I giggled whilst rolling onto all fours and wiggling my ass in the air. I heard a small ‘fuck’, after he rolled on the condom his hand came down and slapped my ass. Which I was not expecting to feel so good, so I wiggled my ass again and he laughed whilst palming my ass and spanking it again. I felt his tip at my entrance and he stayed there circling it around my entrance. “Calum” I whined, “What?” he smirked, I pushed myself backwards onto him. We moaned in unison as he pounded into me, he kept smacking my ass and I could feel him hitting my g-spot which made me muffle my face in the pillow below as I clutched the sheets.

“Nu-uh pretty girl” Calum moaned and grabbed my hair and pulled me into his chest hitting me at a better angle. I reached around and grabbed hold of his ass and leant my head on his shoulder. He sucked on my neck licking over the hickeys he previously made. Which made me whimper over and over again. 

“I’m going to cum pretty girl”

“S-same”

“Cum then beautiful” he whispered in my ear, which sent me over the edge as I fell onto the pillows, I series of swears and relating Calums name came out my mouth as I saw stars. I got up just to turn my head around and watch Calum cum in me.

I rolled over and he collapsed on top of me so his head was resting on my chest. 

“You know I wasn’t joking, I’ve like you for a really long time when you went with Derrick I was so upset and I didn’t want to hurt you so I let you to be with someone you loved”

“I never really loved him, I always thought of you, ya know, I thought of you more than him, you were always on my mind”

He raised his head and kissed me 

“Be mine?”



6 weeks later it was the surf competition and I had made it into the final, there were me and two others Australia’s sweetheart and a girl who is a bitch so I’m not associating with her, it was the last race and we had to perform at least 5 tricks I was nervous as fuck. So far I haven’t smashed my face on any surfboards and I’m a lot more experienced this year and i’ve got an amazing boyfriend who’s been supporting me through this competition along with Y/F/N and Dan.

“You’re going to do great baby” Calum says whilst kissing my forehead

“Thank you”

“Yeah!! you’re gonna splash them outta the water” Y/F/N said excitedly whilst jumping up and down into Dan’s arms

“I love you” Calum whispered in my ear my breath hitched and I turned around to face him 

“You mean it?”

“I wouldn’t have said it if I didn’t” he blushed

I grabbed hold of his face and kissed him “I love you too” I mumbled against his lips

We smiled into the kiss and let go by the sound of the speaker calling me over

“If you win I’ll give you the champion a small present” he spoke whilst winking

“Pretty sure it’s not small Cal” I shouted as I ran to the start line.

anonymous asked:

As someone in the creative field, do you have any tips on how to save up money?

I do! 

So, as you probably know saving money as an artist can be difficult. Definitely everything on this list I’ve compiled about how to save money requires effort and attention, no one saves money by ignoring their spendings. Depending on your life, abilities, and circumstances this list may not be helpful, however this is what I’ve done to build a decent savings. I have put my top 9 tips under the “Keep Reading”…

25 Things I Learned by 25

1. Ask yourself, “Do I like this person for who they are, or do I like the attention they give me?” There is a difference. Learn it. 

2. Getting over true heart break is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do, but you will do it. Take all the time you need no matter what anyone else says, because you’re the one living it for a love only you experienced. Cry. Be angry. Scream. Write it out. Put everything in a box. Spend a week in your PJ’s binge watching Netflix. Do whatever you need to do. And realize there is a difference between being over someone and letting go of someone and what you had with them. Not only do you have to be over wanting them back, you then have to reach a point where you realize you have to tell yourself to let them and what you had together go, and to open yourself back up to being vulnerable. This is the hardest part. The moment of realization will hit you like a freight train, but once it does, you’ll feel more alive and free than you’ve ever felt. I promise.

3. Fairy tales are not instructions on how to live our life. Your hair will not always be perfect, especially while swimming or in the wind. Ariel and Pocahontas lied. No man is the end all be all, and you don’t always live happily ever after with Prince Charming. Fairy tales are just that…fairy tales. They end when they do for a reason. Sometimes, the greatest love stories and purest loves end. The truth is some of the deepest and most rare loves, even though extraordinary, don’t have a happily ever after ending. Those loves do exist, trust me they do. The “once in a lifetime” loves that most people only experience through books or movies. If you’re lucky enough to have a love like that, even if it’s not the person you spend forever with, cherish it. Also, woodland creatures won’t do your chores. You can’t have a pet tiger, and poisoning people via fruit is highly frowned upon.  

4. Music fixes everything. I’ll say it again for the people in the back. Music. Fixes. Everything. No matter what is wrong, there’s a band, an album, or just a song that completely describes what you’re going through. Music is constant. It never changes while the rest of the world does. The lyrics will always be the same, the beat will always be the same, and the escape from reality will always be the same. I have music playing any time I possibly can. As long as you have music, you’re never alone. Let music save you when nothing else can. 

5. Travel. As far and as often as you can. See the world you were blessed to be born into. If we weren’t meant to travel, everyone and everything would look the same. Immerse yourself into the cultures of the places you visit. Speak to locals. Eat their food. Be respectful of their customs. You’ll learn far more about the world by seeing it than you will by reading a text book. 

6. It’s okay to be selfish, and you should be. Maybe not all the time, but it is important. You cannot live to please everyone in the world. If you do that, you’re wasting away the precious life that you’ve been given. It’s okay to put yourself first, because at the end of your life when you’re taking your last breaths, you’re the one who has to be able to look back and say you lived with no regrets. 

7. Learn to love the little things and appreciate details. Not everything has to be a grand, over the top, extravagant event or scenario. Notice when people remember the small things. Thank people for their small acts of kindness and compliments. Appreciate how much work and effort goes into the day to day things we take for granted. Don’t rush through life so much that you miss the small parts that make up the whole. 

8. Sometimes you just have to cut negative people out of your life. You can’t fix those who don’t want to be fixed and you can’t help those who don’t want to be helped. Breaking yourself trying to fix others is no way to live. Negative energy doesn’t do you any good whatsoever. If someone isn’t bettering you and your life as a whole, you need to leave them behind. 

9. There are going to be some very dark days, but there will also be some inexplicably beautiful days that will stick with you forever. Cherish those good days. Live for those days. And know that when times are darkest, it will and does always get better. 

10. Nothing and no one in life are permanent, but tattoos are. Think them through. Spell check them. Then spell check them ten more times. Make sure they mean something to you now and that they will forever. 

11. Your mom is right. Just trust me, she’s right. 


12. You are not obligated to forgive people. You do not have to tell them that what they did to hurt you was okay just because they said they were sorry. There is a difference between accepting an apology and moving past an issue, and forgiving what someone did. You can accept their apology, but you do not have to forgive or forget what they did to hurt you. 

13. Experiences > Material Things. Every single time. When you die, it’s the memories you’ll take with you and the experiences that’ll flash before your eyes. Having the latest and greatest is fun until something else comes out and sucks your money or it breaks. That designer bag that will be out of style in six months could pay for a plane ticket to some place you’ve never been before. Prioritize. 

14. You’re going to change your mind. Your interests will change. Make sure that they’re changing for you and not to please someone else. 

15. Stop spending your money on fast food. If you have food at home, eat it. Those couple bucks here and there add up. If you get the urge to eat out when you know you shouldn’t, put those couple bucks in a jar instead to save up for a trip or a concert. 

16. You’re going to royally fuck up at some point in life. You’re going to say the wrong thing or do the wrong thing. You may even hurt some people or lose some friends in the process. That’s called being human. Own up to your mistakes. Do your best to make them right. Learn from them. Better yourself because of them. 

17. Focus on the good. Spending all of your time focusing on the negative aspects in life and being angry is a miserable way to live. 

18. You do not know anyone’s story. Even your closest friends and relatives have their demons that no one but them knows about, just like you have your hidden demons. You see the version of people that they want you to see. Do not judge anyone. Do not belittle people. Be kind always. 

19. Take as many photographs as you possibly can. Even when the people and places change, the photographs and the memories won’t. Looking back on memories made will never get old. Someday, when you’re old and gray, you may not be able to recollect things as well. Pictures will not only help you remember your life, but they will create stories for your children and their children. 

20. Take your makeup off before bed. Always. Even when it’s two a.m. and you just got in from that wild college party and you are completely exhausted. Get up and take off your makeup. You’ll thank yourself in the morning. 

21. Scholarships are your friends, apply for them all. Student loans don’t pay themselves back and they suck! That being said, do not break yourself over your grades and over school. Your mental health is far more important than your grades. 

22. Quality > Quantity. Whether it is food, clothes, or friends. This applies to everything in life except for money. 

23. Stop caring so much about what other people will think. If you like the dress, wear it. If you want to wear bright blue lipstick, do it. If you want to post ten Instagram pictures in a row on the same day, post them. Over thinking will kill you slowly but surely. Quit thinking about how many licks it takes to get to the center of a lollipop and just eat the damn lollipop!

24. Being happy is a choice. Choose it whenever possible. 

25. Know your worth. Never let anyone tell you that you don’t deserve the absolute best. Never settle for anything in life. You set the bar.
