this is how she watches me when i take selfies

I hate it when people say technology is taking away kids’ childhoods
If anything, it’s actually giving kids more of an opportunity to let their imagination out

A lot of times when I let kids play on my phone, they go for the drawing app.
I watched a girl on the bus write a silly poem about her friends and then laugh as she made Siri read it
I hear children say to their friends “hey, FaceTime me later” because they still want to talk face to face even when they’re far away.
I see kids sitting, who would feel lonely and ignored if it weren’t for the fact that they’re texting their friends who are far away.
Children still climb trees. They might just take a selfie from the top to show off how high they’ve gotten.
They can immediately read the next book of their favorite series on their Kindles.
Most kids would still be up for a game of cops and robbers. Or maybe they’d google rules to another game they haven’t played yet.
When children wonder why the sky is blue, they don’t get an exasperated “I don’t know” from tired adults. They can go on Wikipedia and read about light waves and our atmosphere.
They show off the elaborate buildings they created on Minecraft.

Technology isn’t ruining childhoods, it’s enhancing them.

Oh my god how did you get to take those selfies? 😱

Okay so my best friend’s dad is the director for the today show(which i didnt even know about until last week) but anyway a few days ago she asked me if i wanted to go see FOB bc they were performing. So we woke up at 4:30 today drove to nyc and got to go all through NBC studios. We got to watch rehearsal side stage which was amazing and then when they actually performed they had like a 30 minute break between Thnks fr the memories and the next two songs. So during that break they were kinda goofing around on stage and we were under Joe’s mic and they were all waving at us and being really cute but had ear pieces in so couldnt understand what we were saying. I really wanted a picture so after a little bit i made a little sign that said ‘Selfie?’ On it. I held it up and PETE WENTZ MADE FULL ON EYE CONTACT  and i shrugged and kinda beckoned him over HE LEGITIMATELY SKIPPED OVER TO US AND STARTED TAKING SELFIES. Even after we were done with pics he kinda just sat there high fiving us and took out his ear piece for a little to talk(THAT BOY IS A WORK OF ART) And then patrick ran over too and we took selfies but i messed up my first one and i was like ‘nooo i look so bad’ AND IN THE MIDDLE OF TAKING A PICTURE WITH MY FRIEND HE GRABS MY SHOULDER AND SAID “YOU LOOKED CUTE BUT WE CAN RETAKE IT” AND I AM STILL CRYING BECAUSE OF THAT BUT YES THEY GAVE US PICKS AND THEN HAD TO PREFORM BUT BASICALLY I HAD THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE EVER BECAUSE OF THIS SIGN:

the new girl part 2 [michael]

summary: You just arrived in Australia for your dad’s job, after spending three years in Africa. New school, new lifestyle, new deceptions.  you can find part one here and part three here part four is here

This day, you walked home alone. Your right hand hurted you a lot because let’s say it, you slapped him really hard. You tried to avoid your sister when you got home, and went directly upstairs where you cried even more. What Michael said about you made you forgot about your best friends who’s coming in a few hours.

“Y/N, hurry up ! We’re gonna be late at the airport” Yeah, that’s right, the best friend. You quickly wiped the tears, put a little bit of make up and you joined your sister downstairs. “It’s okay, I’m here” you groaned. “You don’t seem happy to see Y/BF/N” she asked, worried. “What ? No ! I’m really excited, I’m just tired of school” She took your hands and led you to your car “It’ll be fine, I know you, once Y/BF/N will be here, you’ll be happy. It’s kind of sad that you’ll be at school all the week.” True, it was holidays in Africa, but not here. Your best friend had to stay at home, but she promised she’ll pick you up at school every day.

You were waiting for her at the airport, she texted you saying that she’ll be here in 5 minutes. You had others messages too, all from Michael.

michael: Y/N let me explain

michael: Please tell me you’ll be at school tomorrow for the game, I need to talk to you

michael: Don’t ignore me

michael: Why were you at my house ?

You were going to answer when you heard someone screaming “Y/N ! How the fuck you’re so tall !” Of course it was Y/BF/N, you ran toward her while putting your phone in your pocket. She literally jumped in your arms. You hugged her like you never did “I missed you” 

__

You spend the night talking, watching movies, eating and taking a lot of stupid selfies. It was good to finally have a real friend with you, a friend who won’t stab you in your back. And having her with you made you forget a little about Michael, but you knew you’ll have to face him soon.

It was Saturday, the day of the game Michael was talking about. You didn’t told your best friend about the story with Michael, you didn’t want to cry even more. But you finally decided to bring her at the game, so she could meet a few people.

She told you about what happened in Africa, she also told you that she’ll be back in Germany in one year because her mom needed to go back home. Today was a football game, Michael wasn’t in the team but everyone knew he’s at all the game to flirt with the girls on the other team. You tried to hide from him, you didn’t want to talk to this asshole. He lied to you, he made fun of you and you hated him.

“Y/N, why are you stressed ?” she sat next to you in the gradin. “I’m not, why are you saying that ?” you said while bitting your nails. “Maybe because I know you, and that you’re stressed.” she gently hit you in the arm. “It’s nothing Y/BF/N. Don’t worry” you said while smiling at her. The game wasn’t going to start for 15 minutes, so you decided to point people to tell Y/BF/N things about them. 

But you saw him, his black hair, piercing, leather jacket and his smirk. Michael Clifford was here. He was with his friends, the same friends he was with when you heard him talk about you. They were probably flirting with girls. You muttered a small “dick” when his face turned to find your face in the crowd. You hide your face in your hands, not really ready to face him. “Oh Y/N, there’s a hottie walking towards us. Do you know him ? He has dark hair and he’s right there” she said while taking your hands off you face to point Michael, who were now a few seats away from you.

“Y/N, can I talk to you please” you recognised his voice, he sounded shy. “Oh my god, Y/N, you know him and you didn’t even told me ?” Y/BF/N asked you, playing the hurt girl. “He’s no one Y/BF/N, I don’t know him” after that, you took your bag and left. You turned around a last time, to see Y/BF/N running after you and Michael, was a horrible sad look on his face.

Please tell us the story about your first kiss.

It was during our prom on my junior year while he was a senior.

I remember sitting at the corner while I watch my friends jam with the tune of Dirty Bit by Blackeyed Peas. My heels are killing me and the curls in my hair are driving me insane. A part of me wished I only stayed home while reading a good book or listening to my rock playlist. I dreaded that moment and I can not seem to have fun. He went to where I was and he smiled at me, his sweet sweet smile. He asked me why I was sitting when everyone’s having fun. I told him it is not my kind of fun.

Then as if in cue a love song played driving the party people away. The couples started to form a sea of sweetness on the dance floor. He asked me if I wanted to dance and I told him, sure. He led me to the dance floor and we swayed with the rhythm of the music playing. After how many minutes that seems like infinite, a party music played again sending everyone to dance like crazy again. He asked me if I wanted to get out of there and I nodded like a seven-year old girl who was asked if she wanted to go to Disneyland.

He led me out of the dance floor, away from everyone who are taking selfies and group pictures of how good they look on that night. I removed my high heels from my feet as we climbed upstairs. We were laughing the entire time. We were chasing the moon light. Then when we reached the roof top, we were catching our breath with exhilaration. 

He asked me to watch the stars and so I looked at all the diamonds that decorated the dark sky above and then I looked at his face, his innocent face that is coated with amazement. His eyes shone brighter than the stars. He was smiling the entire time. Then he looked at me and I swear in that moment he took my breath away. Not wanting to keep the awkwardness, I told him, “The stars look so beautiful tonight.” “But not as beautiful as you.” he whispered. 

This time I held his gaze and suddenly, I could feel him close the gap between our faces. Then gently, his lips brushed against mine, shutting down all the logic in my mind, filling me up with too much desire for him. It only lasted for how many seconds but it felt like eternity. After that, he looked at me again with a smile on his face.

And then I woke up. Lol. I have never been kissed. I’ve been saving it for someone I really love the most. Hahaha!

Look at these bunch of dorks I got to meet! In all honesty I met them quite a few times this weekend. I just couldn’t stay away lol. That was my 4th selfie with Dan over the past few days. They kept turning out so blurry but I finally got a good one. Like Dan I just really appreciate everything you do and how you are just such a great person! You’ve dealt with so me so much lol but you always greeted me with a smile even if it was your 5th time to see me that day. I really wasn’t trying to be creepy or stalk you. I’m just such a big fan of yours I just wanted to talk to you as much as I could. I’m so glad you liked Miss Piggy and that you are officially my best friend! Also I still can’t believe y'all remember my surgical Carl pics and still talk about them lol. It does make me happy though. In glad y'all enjoyed them. Kootra is just so darn silly it’s great. He took a pic with a sign for Mich and I was just so happy he did. We talked about mead for awhile and how he is wanting to start selling it (which of course I will buy). And geez is he tall?! Next we have Joe…like look at him. He is just so adorable! I was tempted to ask if I could touch his beard but decided that was too weird. He was very elusive for me. Every time I walked up to the booth him and Stefani left! I was able to finally get both of them. It was so amazing to actually watch him paint. He has so much talent and passion I could watch him paint for hours. Now to Stefani…just wow o wow is she gorgeous or what?! She is probably one of the sweetest ones. We talked for a little bit and I almost didn’t want to take a selfie with her because of how pretty she is. She makes me look bad lol. Spencer..Spencer Spencer Spencer. He is just awesome! He gives off this vibe that’s hard to explain but it just made me happy and energetic. When I told him I didn’t get to meet him at my last RTX he was like “well hi I’m Spencer” and shook my hand. He even noticed when I changed my nose ring lol. And last (but not least) Alex. I probably talked to him the most honestly. He is really awesome. I enjoyed our talks. I think this fandom needs to get more onboard the Alex train lol. He brings a lot to this group of misfits and deserves the recognition. All in all I’ve enjoyed my time at RTX and wouldn’t trade one moment of it. I’ve made new friends, saw old ones, but most importantly supported my Creatures. As long as they keep coming so will I. Until next year…

All Images are from Google or Richard’s twitter, I’m too lazy and so not emotionally prepared to wave through all his tag finding the movable version for any of this, I’d probably have a heart attack before I manage to finish this post.

I PROFOUNDLY APOLOGISED! That this post is ridiculously long and full with tons of images…

Day 7: A Favourite Personal Look

Seriously, how can anyone answer this question? I sure can’t. I mean, I basically don’t give that much attention to his looks, he’s an actor; he has to change his appearance all the time to keep things look realistic. Besides, I’m no Fashionista myself, when someone asks me about his/her style, I usually response that he/she looks fine the way she/he is! It isn’t a lie, my head really is working like that.

And oh my, Richard does look absolutely gorgeous in every style he’s managed to be. Well, I have to say maybe not his ‘90′s Backstreet Boys’ one in Between the sheets.

Yeah…probably not this one…

But apart from that, Totally fine, damn.

I’m usually all for man in suits, you know, all nicely dressed and gentlemanly but Richard with cardigan and waistcoat really does make my heart leap. It makes him look approachable and kinda of, I don’t know, warm somehow.

Suits? Oh yes, Definitely yes. though for me, I love him more in black; black has always been my favourite colour, I don’t know it has certain quality like bringing out a sort of mystery and sophisticated, enticing atmosphere some how.

But of course, His casual looks is not bad at all. I kinyda like this side of him actually; I remember reading an interview way back like in 2008 or something where he gave an interview in causal clothes, and then went to change for the photo, lol. The man has almost absolute no-sense about dressing himself; I think perhaps he’s just too lazy and doesn’t like to be bothered with it. When shooting Spooks, he talked about how he would hit the gym after shooting, went home and crashed on the bed, waking up in the morning, putting on the clothes that he had just picked up from the floor because he didn’t have the time to send it for cleaning before going out for the shoot of that day. Yeah, totally hopeless.

Dark and dirty, clad in leather?

Need you ask?

As for his facial hair… I don’t know but clean-shaven Richard always gives the sense of incredibly young and it looks so oddly unfamiliar, so for me I don’t particular in favour of it though I wouldn’t object. (My friend said that Richard looks old and odd-looking but when she saw his picture as Lee in Cold Feet, she literally pointed out at the screen; shouting out right that he’s handsome.)

I think we could agree that Richard with a little bit of stubble, like with those 5 o’clock shadow is the most frequent looks we’ve seen him it. And it works fantastically. I think there even a research saying that women are more likely to attract to a slightly-beard man rather than  a clean-shaven or full-beard one. But for Richard, it sure add up more to his charm; giving the vibe of someone who is a bit sinister; like bad-boy attractive especially when he dyed his hair black…

The beard? 

Oh, no doubt. I think the man likes his beard. In one interview he expressed concern at first about having a beard while doing a Photo-shoot but much to his surprise, it turned up to look good. (His exact word would be okay but I think we can push it to good, no?) For me, he looks a bit more mature and, I don’t know intimidating? because only when he got a full beard on had I realised that he is indeed a big man and my, watching the Crucible really gives me a glimpse of how he would be when he’s angry.

You know someone once made a point that Richard’s selfies on Twitter look like a compilation of Hot Dad taking selfies, my friend said that she had agreed with that (I would never ever call Richard “Daddy” but oh well…) I don’t know, I love that looks as well. I mean, how can you not?

Hair colour? I would say Black does indeed compliment his eyes making them much more prominent and boy, what a nice pair of eyes…

But when his real colour is showing, it looks kinda nice too.


Or like this…

Hell, I should probably stop now…Okay, I’m gonna stop now…
