rich is one of those guys that’s just really touchy like he has grabby hands and now that his squip is gone he’s got this nervousness that sits under the surface and makes him super fidgety and always bouncing his leg or cracking his knuckles and touching people just makes him feel better like if he’s sitting next to jake at lunch he’ll pick up his hand and play with his fingers and if jake’s lying with his head in rich’s lap he’ll like stroke his hair and twirl it around his fingers and sometimes he doesn’t even notice he’s been like tracing little circles on jake’s leg or something for like ten minutes but jake’s super into it because he’s alone so much that he’s hardly ever in physical contact with people and it’s just so nice to hang out with rich for hours after school and just do nothing because even if they’re just watching tv or something where they’re not talking he’s never able to forget rich is with him because he’s always being touched in some way.
iiaat to touch objects to get a better understanding of them? like i'll see a necklace, but i have to touch it's chain and the beads/stones/etc. on it so i can get just that much better of an understanding of the object
I think this is more just a people thing, and possibly a learning style thing. People tend to understand things better when they can hold them in their hands.
Feel better man. I get the trust issues thing. I don't even know why. Maybe because of school, who knows. In any case, I want you to know it's gonna be okay, and you aren't alone. Sending virtual hugs/back pats/sympathy.
thank you.. I’m just a very lonely broken person and people scare me a lot.. I wish there was a way I could find other lonely broken people and we could make a lonely broken people club and talk about cartoons.
“ To Jinjinjara/Seok-jin!! It’s your eternal roommate, Suga. I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since we’ve known each other. Remember when I first met you? You seemed so well-behaved and kind and you seem so bright and cheerful these days, which amazes me. I believe that being together with us has brought about that change? It seems like yesterday when you were concerned and not confident on stage but when I see you on stage these days, I realize how well you sing. It’s the result of your hard effort for a long period of time. I’ve watched you for a long time. It was touching to see you try to do better at something that you weren’t good at. I felt that I had a lot to learn from you. Let’s be together for a long time. P.S: But I wish you’d act your age”.
Jin to Jungkook:
“ To Jk, Hi, JK. It’s me. I’m always appreciative of what you do. Thank you for having the same mental age as I do, when I am 26 years old. While traveling with you, I was reminded once again of how strong your punches are. I’ll do better, so please don’t hit me. I think your face got a lot darker during this trip. As the older guy, I’ll give you a facial mask when we go back to Korea. Soothe your skin with it, and also soothe yourself and stop lying on my bed. You keep lying on my bed and taking selfies. You may have gotten a tan in Hawaii, but I will throw you into a fire pit in Korea. Of course, that fire pit is my heart. Come and be embraced in my big heart. Thank you for being the teacher and the energy of the team. Jungkook, you are nice, good looking, strong, have a good body, have big eyes, sings and dances well. I love you”.
Jungkook to Rap Monster:
“To Namjoon, Hey. This is the youngest of the team, Jungkook. I’m not good at writing letters so I don’t know where to start, but here I go. This is something that I always think about. I often get inspired, by the team. Although I’m inspired by all the members, I’m especially inspired by you. I have a lot of things that I wanna do but I never seem to stick to them for long. You guys always joke about that. But when that pattern was repeated, I felt that I have really become that kind of person. Whenever I see you working, talking about or working on music or speaking English, I develop this sense of confidence and passion. I know that things may be tough for you too, but please continue showing those things for me. I’ll keep following you from behind. You’re really an amazing person”.
Taehyung to Jimin:
“To Jimin. Jimin, hi. Writing you this sincere letter is making me cringe, but I’m trying to go on. Please understand. Since our trainee days, we came to Seoul without a clue. We woke up, put on uniforms and attended the same school. We ate together, went to practice together, went to practice and got back to the dorm. Then we’d talk all night. After such 6 years, you’re now my dearest friend. Before our debut, you once got anxious about it. At that time, I had a company meeting. they asked me what I’d think if Jimin is on the team. I thought it over and said that you’re there when I’m up or down, the only one who laughed and cried with me. I said that I’d like such a good friend to debut with me as a team. It felt good to say that. And I’m glad that I was able to debut with you. All our good memories made me happy. And I’m sorry since I’m always on the receiving end. When I’m in the bathroom to cry, you still cry with me. And you come see me at dawn to laugh alongside me. You care about me and have me in your thoughts. You work hard for me and understand. You listen to my concerns and like me though I’m lacking. Let’s walk a road of happiness. Love you, buddy.
Rap Monster to Tae-Hyung:
“Taehyung, my first letter goes to you. That gives me a mix of feelings. Like the peddles we’ve seen to our heart’s content in Hawaii, it’s hard to pick out what I want to say to you. like the open sea we’ve enjoyed, it may be because we go far back with many memories we share. I remember when I first met you. When you came with your father to our dorm with big eyes, busy legs, and your puckered lips, I knew at once.That you'be a rascal. I also remember how you were anxious before our debut. Your unique character and strangeness got me puzzled at times. so I wondered what aspect of yours helped you to bear everything at times. But as time went by and my hair started to grow out, I realized that even me, who I thought was the norm, is also a strange puzzling guy. And I was drawn by your uniqueness. And I was envious at times because you easily befriend people and everyone likes you. You have shown everyone that your strangeness is actually your unique charm. You might say this makes you cringe, but since you started out as a trainee, I want to say I’m grateful to you as a friend and older member. Thanks for not being a farmer or playing the saxophone and coming to us to complete BTS. Let’s keep up the good work. Hand in there!”.
Jhope to Suga:
“To my bro Suga from Jhope, Hey. It’s Hoseok. We’ve been together for 7 years, including our trainee days. When I was first at the dorm, I felt so awkward and shy. So I remained in the living room. Then you came over to talk and made me relax. I still can’t forget that moment. Coming from Gwangju, you were like my savior. When I was sick or sad, you were always there for me. When I was tired and had it hard; you were there to give me strength. When I got seasick on Bon Voyage 2 and opened my eyes from sleep, the first person I saw was you. Though Jimin was also there. I didn’t say it then, but I really appreciate your help. As much as we’ve spent time together, I’m that much grateful to you. I’d like to say that with this letter at this time. Thanks for becoming a member of BTS. And thanks for being my big brother. I hope you’re always by my side. I love my bro!“.
Jimin to Jhope:
“To Hoseok. I thought it would be easy because it’s not the first letter to you. But it’s not. I am nervous. Because we talk together a lot and I talk about my feelings to you, I guess you know well what I think or what I want to say. When I look at you, I have this thought: ‘He is really honest and faithful. He is a good and nice one”. I thought like this: “A person can be cool because he is honest and faithful”. I realized it thanks to you. As a younger brother and a member of the same team, I learn a lot from you. You always take good care of us. you pay attention to us and work hard. I know. I want to say thank you, with all my heart. Thank you, brother! I hope you take care of yourself and stop worrying about us. My dear brother, whom I always am thankful, love you.“
So if you have to give us like a personality trait of yours or like a quirky thing that you do - what don’t people know about you specifically — I have a real fear of anyone or anything touching my belly button … don’t try and do it if you meet me please because it freaks me out…
If a mother told a story about her daughter being touched without consent, you “feminist” would sympathize. If that mother went on to say that her abuser is punishing her for telling someone about what he did and was doing so by SUING her, you would sympathize and possibly become enraged. Her mother would go on to say she doesn’t want this to blow up and was okay with the man getting fired since it happened in the work place. However since he’s now suing her she only has two options,
1) To pay her abuser for assaulting her or
2) To counter sue.
You’d say she should counter sue.
If you then heard the woman was in fact counter suing and only for $1 because she didn’t want the money but wanted to prove to women you can stand up to your abuser, you’d call her a role model and maybe even a hero. You’d say that’s what feminism is about.
So why when I tell you that woman is Taylor Swift you “feminist” suddenly say “she deserved it” , “She has a flat ass. There was nothing to grab”, “She’s doing this for attention / money” ? Why do you turn as ugly as the abuser himself? You are no better than the man that touched a woman without consent.
1. Read. Even
things outside of you preferred genre. The best books I’ve ever read go beyond
the structure of the genre and touch well on things that are usually better
handled in other types of writing. Reading also shows you more examples of
characterization, scene structure, etc., and don’t be afraid to critique the
book as you work through it.
2. Critique. Being
helpfully critical of other writing is sometimes easier than working with your
own, because you only have to work with what’s in front of you (like a reader
of your story would). This can help you better prioritize what needs to be
fixed first to last, plus you can get better at picking out problems and
figuring out how to fix them.
3. Observe. In
public, and maybe sometimes private, take some time to notice your surroundings
and how people go about their lives. This can help with creating better
description and a more natural setting/flow to scenes.
4. Talk. This is
more useful for ideas, but find someone to bounce things off of. It doesn’t
have to be anything big and they don’t need to know the whole story, just take
one question like “How would you react if you suspected your friend was
kidnapped?” and listen to what they say. The answer may not work in your
story, but it can give you a new perspective that writers always need.
5. Take a break.
And do some of the things above. When you return to your work, you may notice a
difference in writing skill, even if it’s only on a tiny part of the piece.
Breaks allow your brain to synthesize what you learn and let you recharge your
energy, usually resulting in more confidence if handled correctly.
Good luck with your work and if there are any questions,
drop them in my ask box and I’d be happy to answer.
