Dear future daughter,


I wanted to write this as a sort of time capsule, so that you would know how your mother was at sixteen and what I expect of you as my daughter.

I love music and singing, and I expect I’ll put you for music classes early on, unless you don’t like singing and composing which is completely okay.
You can quit and join karate or anything you want.
I won’t force you, instead I’ll let you find your own path in life, like my mom let me.

You wanna ride horses? Cool. I liked that too.
You wanna go for kickboxing and learn how to defend yourself? Cool.
You wanna do ballet and enthrall the audience with your magnificent coordination? Amazing.

Anything you want to do babe, I am hundred percent right behind you.

I am big on reading as well, and this may sound odd, but unlike dancing or singing, I would very much adore it if you loved reading as much as me.
I will introduce it gently of course, by telling you adventure stories I wrote for you, about bears and fairies, and any thing you like.
Then I would introduce all sorts of new books, the same ones my mom introduced to me,Malory Towers, St. Claires, Tin-Tin’s, Secret Seven and so on.
If you don’t like reading, I understand.
I hope you do, though.

I am really sorry but you may or may not have my acne.
I am so sorry, I know how much you suffer trying to talk to that cute boy who’s the next Zac Efron, or how hard you try to cover it up.
Or how much you cry over something that someone said about your skin.
I wish I could change things in that department but I can’t. You have combination skin just like me, and it only gets better everyday, and soon enough a beautiful sense of maturity and compassion will bloom, like those Violets you adore.

You might deal with a lot of appearance issues, and trust me, even all the way back in 2017, we still have them.
Let me tell you this, your weight is just the relationship you have with gravity.
It doesn’t define your intellect, beauty, the amount of love you can give to the universe around you.
W=m x g
That’s all weight is.
So eat that pizza, gobble that pancake and never starve yourself.
I am not saying don’t be healthy and exercise, oh no, but its okay to be kind to yourself once in a while.

Career.
Tricky.
I am not going to say I am not going to behind your grades, or behind you to keep them up, but I will give you a chance to improve if you mess up, which you will and thats okay.
That’s life.
To me, do what you love.
Do something that keeps you happy, something that keeps you interested.
Do something that makes you excited to walk into work.
I hope I am doing the same honestly.
To me, education is not just about books and grades, and the colleges you get into.
I’ve probably taken you to so many places in the world, and all that you’ve learned, all the food you’ve eaten, all the cultures you’ve experienced, that is what you have truly experienced. Of course, it won’t pay your bills and it sure as hell won’t help you get to college, but it will make you better citizens of this earth, better human beings, more accepting, less judgmental.

Love.
Oh my, honey, you are going to fall so hard.
For a broken boy with broken promises.
With the talented singer.
With the most popular boy in school.
With someone half way across the world.

In the end, after everyone, you will realize you don’t need to settle for someone who makes you feel terrible about yourself, you just need someone who treats you like the princess you are.
Trust me, its not the prettiest or the most popular that gets to be the keeper of your precious heart.

Of course, if you decide you don’t want to be in a relationship, that’s great.
You’re a strong independent woman who doesn’t need anyone to tell her how downright amazing she is.
(feminist alert! haha)

Trust me.
They are going to break you, shatter you, make you feel like you can never love again.
You will love again though.
Again and again.

(You can change the genders above to suit you)
I expect by the time you are old enough to realize who you love, who you’re attracted to, it won’t matter.
I hope for Goodness sakes, we live in progressive times.
If we don’t, I will love you no matter what, if you’re bi, demi, gender fluid or anyone.
I will love you the same.
Coming out will be the easiest thing you will ever have to do, I promise.

Religion
Well, I am an agnostic, but if you decide that you want to follow a religion I will allow it.
Preferably Hinduism because that would make my mom and dad, (your grandma and grandpa happy) but if its Buddhism, Christianity or any religion, be my guest.
Explore, decide and tell me.
I will respect you if you decide to believe in a higher power, because I think that takes a certain amount of strength.

I might get mad at you, scream, cry and you have to realize I am not perfect.
Far from it.
I just want you to be a nice, respectful and loving human being.
Your grades and talents are secondary to me.
Sure I might not buy everything you want me to, but I promise I will provide you with everything you need.

I need to leave now, but it’s been great getting to know you,
this is sixteen year old me signing out.

Lance,,,being insecure,,,,and the team helping,,,in subtle ways,,,in my,,,aesthetic,,,

anon,,,you get me,,,,

  • lance has no confidence in himself, thats a fact
  • but he hides it pretty well, all the jokes and bravado keep people off his tail
  • and the trick behind all that is that lance is observant.
    • like scarily so
  • so imagine when missions start to go wrong and lance does something behind everyones back that gets them back on track
  • or when they’re having team meetings, he wil mention something thats really off hand that no one really thinks about till later because omg it makes so much sense. and im talking wayyy later, to the point wehre its not relevant anymore
  • but its doesnt stop there
  • sometimes pidge will be sleeping in an odd place and lance will bring her a blanket so she doesnt get cold
    • he also saves the stuff on her laptop and turns it off or idles it for later
  • hunk will misplace something in the kitchen and lance sometimes walks in and ‘magically’ finds it for him
    • lance just knows where everything is
  • when coran is doing maintenance on the castle, lance likes to appear and give him a helping hand
  • shiro has a hard time sleeping and lance found a soothing body wash for shiro specifically that helps him calm down some, enough to sleep more than he does
    • (you cant tell me that lance doesnt know where all the cosmetic stuff is in the castle, the boy has a nose for it i swear)
  • keith is the training room gremlin and when kes been at it too much, lance will come in and basically screw up keiths groove enough to get him out of there
    • usually takes 3 or 4 challenges before keith has had enough and storms out
    • lance’s feelings arent hurt by it, he just wants keith to take care of himself ok?
  • allura can work herself to the bone too so when shes in the control room, lance likes to come by and start talking about earth
    • the similarities draw allura out of her head and start to open up to lance about altea
    • and by the end of the convo, allura is yawning and lance tells her to go to bed. works like a charm
  • and i like to think it takes a really long time for anyone to realize that lance has been keeping them together this whole time
  • like when conversations get to heated, he will make a joke at his expense and it diffuses the situation
  • or he will say just the right thing to kickstart a really great plan
    • all the while not taking any credit for it
  • like my dudes, lance cares so fucking much and no one notices, but hes completely okay with it since the team is all together and he can see his own family in them
  • he doesnt want to lose that
  • so he sticks to being the Middle Child™ and accepts being looked over as long as team voltron is together
okay cool new rule

if you randomly send me a gratuitous dick pic, or you follow me and thats your profile picture, or you follow me and thats all that comes up on the preview of your page, or you somehow expose me to your rotten little trouser snake in any form without asking - I’m going to DOX you. And I’m going to send each of those pictures to your sister, and your mother, and your grandmother, and your boss, and her boss, and her boss and I’ll keep going until every single person in your life knows youre a sex pest with a tiny dick and zero social skills. Deal?

Me, Doing College Theatre: “Why do we keep doing all these Weird as Shit™ shows? Wouldn’t we get more butts in seats if we did musicals?”

prompt: 80- “you are so tiny compared to me”

it was another long boring cheer practice and the squad had been kicked out of our gym and thrown out onto the football field to train with the football team.

it was one of the hottest days of the year and you had to spend the past hour dodging footballs and doing a bunch of different flips and learning cheryls impossible choreography.

you feel breathless doubling over trying to suck in a breathe feeling all types of heat stroke. you bring your head up waving down your red headed captain

“can we like take a break for 5 minutes?” you huff shielding your eyes from the sun.

she glances around at her team half the girls were already sitting on the ground trying to shield themselves from the scorching hot sun

“5 minutes and thats it” she yells out to the whole squad before walking all the way over to me extending a bottle to me “thanks red” i mumble taking a long swig

the siren rings loud indicating an end of a period and cheryl huffs sighing “lets go ladies practice is over” she yells turning and scowling at me

“oh c'mon your not mad at me right?” i ask jogging behind my best friend as she struts off the field whistling from the hormonal teenage boys behind us filling the field

“im not” she replies keeps her focus in front of her “cheryl?” i question stopping in my place only for her to walk off without me.

i groan rolling my eyes taking another long sip out of the icy water bottle when i feel a strong pair of arms wrap around my waist pulling me up

I squeal as the water squirts out of the bottle my feet leaving the grass. i trash around in the strangers arms until im put down familiar giggles filling the air

“reggie you jerk you made me wet” i complain trying to wipe of the water that had spilt on my uniform as i walk next to my boyfriend

archie and chuck snicker a smile growing on my raven haired boyfriends face “baby girl i know i do, maybe you should really be telling everyone” he teases

i roll my eyes pushing his chest “your such a child” i laugh glancing at the three boys sticking my tongue out and spraying them with my water bottle

they yell covering their faces chasing me across he field, i squeal running as fast as my feet carry me until I’m lifted up into the air more and more water pouring on top of me

“STOP!” i yell after they put me down i rush to reggie bury myself into his chest trying to protect myself reggie getting soaked in the process

“ANDREWS! CLAYTON!” i hear coach clayton yell gainging the attention of the three jocks

they drop their bottles looking up at the older man “yes coach?” archie calls back guilt on his face

“maybe we should leave miss (y/l/n) alone so she can get to class, we’ll need her on the field cheering and not in detention”

i find myself giggling pushing my wet hair off my face “lets go” i laugh linking my hands with revives and pulling him toward the locker rooms

i remove my ponytail and let me hair run down my back before facing reggie as he strips off his uniform and changed back into regular clothes

“this was all i had to wear today” i sulk

he turns to me licking his lips as he stares at me “remind me to wet you wore when your in your uniform?” he chuckles

furrowing my brows i look down to se what you can clearly see my black lace bra now that’s the white cotton was drenched.

i playfully smack my boyfriends chest “can you give me something to wear?” i beg pouting, slipping on a pair of denim shorts and removing my white shirt

his eyes dart around the room pulling me into him by my waist “god (y/n) you can’t just strip off what is someone came in” he glances around the room eyes wide panic on his expression

i laugh standing up on my tippy toes and pulling reggie down to connect our lips “you worry too much mantle” he kisses back slipping his hands under my thighs to lift me up on his waist

we continue to kiss gradually getting heated until the should of a locker shutting brings us back to reality

reggie almost drops me still managing to keep my chest out of sight

“wow- andrews what are you doing in here” reggie starts pulling me behind him pulling a shirt over his head

“it’s the locker room reg- im just grabbing my stuff” he chuckles grabbing a fresh shirt before walking away for us laughing at the encounter

reggie turns around digging through his locker, you giggle your hands sliding up his chest “here” he mumbles handing me one of his shirts before dipping down and joining our lips

“reggie this is massive on me” i sulk letting the white t hang just above my knees, he turns and giggles at the sight of me.

i pout crossing my arms in front of my chest “regggg” i sulk dropping my bottom lip.

“im sorry baby girl” he pauses trying to hold back laughter “you are just so tiny compared to me”

he walks back over to you kissing the top of your head “maybe see if the girls have something for you? or you could tie it?” he wraps his arms around your shoulders.

“okay bfg” you poke fun tucking the shirt into your high waisted shorts the raven haired boy puzzled at your statement.

“im a what now?” “a big friendly giant” he narrows his eyes before punching lifting me up into the air swinging me around

“thats it you asked for it”

and after what seemed like the longest tickle fight of your life you both emerge from the locker room hand in hand smiles evident on your faces as you look up to your boyfriend pulling his jacket closer around me body

you were reggies girl

TAG LIST✨👱🏻‍♀️: @hauntedcherryblossombanana-blog @sadbreakfastclb @jugandbettsdetectiveagency @kindfloweroflove

Honestly why do people not talk about Sense8 more??? It tackles so many many problems while being the most badass, most beautifully shot and edited tv show i have ever seen.

4 main characters that are POCs, a trans character played BY a trans character, a gay man who doesn’t have a tragic ending, the most badass Korean woman who is a) not a nerdy side character and b) can take down men twice her size, an african man who is not a side character, 2 gay relationship, an interracial relationship, and thats just about the main 8. Don’t even get me started on their individual stories and the side characters.

And all of this with the most interesting plot thats not just about some love triangle or some nonsense action scenes (i mean there are fight scenes that are the BOMB but they happen for a reason)

Its so amazing @netflix keep going with this show its so goddamn good 🙌🏼

she’s more

(also on ao3)

When Winn tells her that there’s something wrong with Kara, Alex rushes to the medic bay before he can finish, expecting her sister to be broken and mangled.

Only, she’s not there. The building is empty, all personnel deployed to protect the city from Daxamites. And honestly, Alex isn’t sure why she’s not out there either, why Kara is holed up somewhere in the DEO rather than out on the streets, fighting to get her best friend and her boyfriend back.

Alex finds Kara in a meeting room, pacing the length of the table faster than Alex can see.

“Kara, Kara,” Alex says, hoping that her sister will slow to a stop. “What’s going on? Winn said something’s wrong.”

Kara stops directly in front of Alex, her eyes shining with unshed tears, fear etched into her features.

“Everything’s wrong, Alex!”

Alex is taken aback for a moment. She can’t remember the last time Kara lost control during an emergency. And she’s never seen her lose control like this.

This isn’t anger, pent up and exploding. This is fear, plain and simple. Fear coursing through Kara, fear deep in her soul.

Alex is taken aback for a moment. And then she springs into sister mode.

She pulls Kara into a hug, and Kara falls into her embrace, her tears finally falling. A sob escapes her, and Alex runs a calming hand up and down her back.

“It’s okay, you’re okay,” Alex murmurs soothingly. It may not be the best time for Kara to have an emotional breakdown, but that doesn’t matter.

“I failed,” she cries into Alex’s shoulder.

“The battle’s still going,” Alex tells her, “we haven’t lost yet.”

“Does it even matter?? I let Rhea win! She took—” Kara storms away from Alex. She picks up a chair and launches it across the room with a grunt of frustration. Alex watches her sister with a furrowed brow, watches as Kara runs a hand through her hair, as she begins pacing again.

And then realisation washes over her: Kara’s upset that Mon El went with his mother.

“We’ll work it out, Kara. You can’t lose hope.”

“What’s the point of these powers if I can’t protect the people that matter? If I can’t–”

“Mon El knows what he’s doing,” Alex reasons, “he’s a big boy.”

“Who cares about Mon El?” Kara screams. Her hands ball in fists by her side, and she has a wild look in her eye, one that Alex has never seen before.

“Then who?” she asks, confused.

“Lena!” Kara cries, her voice raw. “She took Lena and I couldn’t protect her! She needed me, she needed me and I wasn’t there, Alex!”

And suddenly everything falls into place. Every lunch date, every late night call. The way Kara smiled every time she spoke about Lena.

“Oh my god,” Alex says softly, “you love her, don’t you?”

Kara’s bottom lip quivers, and fresh tears fall. She looks at Alex like she wants to tell her everything, about why she’s this upset. But Alex knows she won’t be able to.

“She’s my best friend,” Kara whispers, more unconvincing than she’s ever been.

“It’s okay if she’s more,” Alex tells her. “It’s more than okay. It’s amazing and beautiful and so totally incredibly okay.”

“But I lost her,” she says so softly Alex can barely hear.

“Then we’ll go together, and we’ll get her back,” Alex promises. She walks further into the room, putting her hands on Kara’s shoulder, and she makes sure Kara looks into her eyes before she keeps talking. “I won’t let you lose her, Kara.”

Kara takes a shaky breath, and nods imperceptibly.

“You’ll stay with me?” she asks, and Alex is reminded all at once of the little girl dropped on her front doorstep all those years ago, the little girl she’d still do absolutely anything for.

“Forever,” Alex promises, and then she smiles, wiping a tear from her sister’s cheek. “Now let’s go get your girl.”

Got yelled at for transgender bathrooms because you know how customers are

So I work at the store that isn’t Walmart and is red instead of blue, pretty obvious right I’m a cashier so pretty much useless when it comes to the brand of my store and today a man and his wife and kids came thru my line as normal and we’re pretty polite not awful and then as they’re walking away no one was in line behind them so the man goes “so is it true about the bathrooms? What’s going on with the bathrooms?” And I am in work mode at the time and I’m SO confused so I go “nothing’s wrong with our bathrooms in fact I was just in there everything’s fine what’s the problem?” And he goes “no target said they’re gonna have a bathroom for those transgender people” and I go “excuse me?” And he goes “it’s all over the news the bathroom at target for the fucking *******(used the word that rhymes w/ granny’s)” and I go “I’m sorry I don’t keep up with target news I’m just a cashier I don’t make decisions about things like that” and he is yelling st me now going “THATS FUCKING DISGUSTING I WONT COME BACK HERE” and at this point I am PISSSED mostly because I don’t give a fuck where someone wants to pee and I don’t think anyone else should either and the fact this mans yelling at me for it is crazy and I just go in a nice calm tone “I think where people want to use the restroom is their own decision you clearly have a different opinion let’s leave the conversation at that alright, I am a cashier not the owner of the store, telling me this is not helping your opinion in any way, & honestly if you’re that concerned I wouldn’t want you shopping in my store anyways and I’m sure if we are getting bathrooms like you say then the people I work with wouldn’t either” and at that point he looked at me dumbfounded bc he thought screaming at a little girl was ok and that id just hide in my corner and back down and luckily his wife literally PULLED him away at that point going “just stop it just stop you read fake Facebook articles I don’t even think it was real” which was the icing on the cake for me lmao but I never play customer is always right game when it comes to old people spouting their hateful opinions at me fuck that

2

but?? keith?? never?? brought?? his?? belongings??
so that makes me wonder if every planet they go to they keep something from the planet in memory of it as they continue their journey
IF SO, THATS HELLA CUTE LIKE JUST IMAGINE ALL THE PALADINS FINDING UNIQUE THINGS FROM DIFFERENT PLANETS

I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.

With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.

They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.

So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.

They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?

I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

As a childcare provider, parents who let their children run their lives and treat their emotions like gospel take like 5 years off my life.

My biggest complaint is that people need to teach their children to let shit go. This is seriously such an important skill. They need to be taught that not every single feeling they ever have is the most important thing on planet earth that gets them anything they want.

Let me explain…..

If you get mad and storm off over sometimes totally not important, I’m going to tell you to let it go and that isnt not a big deal. Because it isnt. If you want to keep freaking out about it, thats on you.

If you whine and tantrum over me not giving you immediate attention, I’m not going to stop doing what I’m doing. I’ll explain that you need to wait and you can wait.

If you start throwing a tantrum, you can go somewhere else and do it. Come back when you’re ready to stop because you’re not getting what you want.

All this factors into that I’ve legit had kids tell me “well I’m having a bad day” or “well I’m mad today/at -insert someone or something-” as an excuse for treating the other kids and staff like absolutely shit so they wont get in trouble. Yeah no, you’re still in trouble. That’s not an excuse to treat people poorly/act like a brat. Oh man, do they have a full on meltdown when they find out how they feel isn’t the most important thing in the universe and, regardless how they “feel”, there are still consequences for their actions.

They are legit some of the hardest children to deal with. I understand that you value how your child feels, and thats seriously great, but please for the love of god, stop letting your children use their “feelings” as a scapegoat for shit behavior and that sometimes you just have to deal with not getting what you want…. Thank you.

(To clarify:

There is a difference between caring about a child’s feelings and letting them use their feelings as a be all end all.

I sit children down all the time and ask them to tell me what’s wrong. I’ve had long discussions with children about their feelings. The amount of times I’ve said “Hey, you dont usually act this way. Are you having a bad day? Did something happen?” or “You seem upset today. What’s wrong?” is uncountable.

There is difference between discussing something with a bothered child vs an overcoddled child who thinks that their feelings trump others. As a childcare worker, you can tell the difference.)

“Except when it’s no,” Andrew said.

Neil put a plastic-wrapped finger to Andrew’s chin, guiding his head up for another kiss. “If you have to keep asking because–I’ll answer it as many times as you ask. But this is always going to be yes.”

“Don’t ‘always’ me.”

“Don’t ask for the truth if you’re just going to dilute it.”

  • Taehyung: that's your opinion.
  • Jungkook: that's a fact. You're all droopy and you keep yawning and you do this thing where you seem to lose your bearing for a second. You know, like you would if you weren't feeling well.
  • Taehyung: I'm lost in thought
  • Jungkook: you look like you're sleepwalking with a cold.
  • Taehyung: appearances can be deceiving, Jungkook.
  • Jungkook:
  • Taehyung: except not in this case. I do feel like I'm sleepwalking with a cold. Can I go to bed?
  • Jungkook: yeah, you do. And go, I don't like when you look like you're about to fall over.
  • Taehyung: if I did fall over, you'd catch me, right?
  • Jungkook: I'd try.
  • Taehyung: you're strong enough.
  • Jungkook: you're just trying to get me to carry you to bed, aren't you?
  • Taehyung: I'd jump on your back but I'm too tired.
  • Jungkook: fine. Hop on.
  • Taehyung: thanks, Kookie, you're the best.
  • Jungkook: I know.
  • Taehyung: and you I love you?
  • Jungkook: I know.
