time for a ~change in pace~

2

                                there’s only one thing we all know for certain and that is …

"But getting an abortion is selfish"

Sure. And?
If there is ever a time to be selfish, the time when your entire future hangs in the balance is it. If you are ever allowed to think of yourself above others, when you are facing thousands and thousands of dollars of medical bills and a fundamental change in your entire life is the time. The whole pace and tempo if your life amd goals and dreams being up for grabs means you are allowed to be selfish.

Luke is either gonna be Jokester Yoda Master or Salty Sad Ben Master in Episode 8. There is no in-between.

Although I personally would love it if he developed an Obi-Wan level of depressing sass.

“Back in my day, our Death Stars only destroyed one planet at time. This is just ridiculous.”

“Are we sure Han died? There may have been a vat of Carbonite down there. Someone go visit Jabba’s son, just to be sure.”

“Why did I choose Ahch-To? Well, I’ve been on planets of all sand, cloud, and ice, and I hated all of them. I thought maybe all water would be a good change of pace. It’s not. Get me the fuck out of here, my ship malfunctioned years ago and everyone thought I was being edgy when really I was just stranded.”

“Oh great, another helmeted murderer I’m related to.”

“Rey, pray to the Force that you’re not actually part of this family. Nobody wants to be part of this family.”

“If Yoda could do it at 900, I can do it at 60.” *promptly dies out of spite*

“Your friend is a stormtrooper, huh? You know, I was a stormtrooper once. Yeah. Yeah, I was great. Tallest one there.”

“There is no luck, only the Force… and the Force likes to be very unlucky around me.”

“Uh, thanks for bringing the lightsaber that holds only memories of pain for me, but I have my own. In green. With a custom handle. You can keep that one.”

“Just kidding, watch me duel-wield.”

How did I lose the weight?

I really hate to be redundant, because I’m sure you’ve been told this plenty of times already, (and so have I), but it is the actual answer: eat healthier foods and smaller portions, and exercise HARD at least 3-4 times a week. 

I think it is especially important to add heavy lifting training into your fitness regime because it will shape your body better than an all cardio schedule. Also, muscle burns more calories even while resting so the more muscle you have, the faster you will see change! I heavy lift at least 3 times a week now, and that jump started my weight loss. Cardio is still done, but I do less endurance cardio (just running for a long time at a normal pace), and more high intensity cardio. For example, I will do short sprints at my fastest pace for 1/8 of a mile, then walk the rest of the lap. Then I will repeat this until I’ve finished one mile, usually. It is healthier for your heart to learn how to beat faster and then cool down faster, too. This will actually reduce your resting BPM, which is very healthy for your heart! 

I also take pro-biotics daily now, and it has helped my stomach immensely and therefore helped my metabolism. That coupled with a daily multi-vitamin and LOTS of water has helped my body and mind feel better in general. I drink a lot of coffee, too, so I have to remember to drink DOUBLE the water for each coffee. So many bathroom breaks. So worth it. 

I started using the app/website MyFitnessPal to track my intake and my output! I have a 67 day streak going on right now for logging my meals and my exercise. I find that app extremely helpful because it is encouraging and it tells you if you are eating enough/too little, not just if you are eating too much. It really is a good app for your health, and I think it has a good social community too that keeps me motivated! Before using MFP, I never thought too much about what I was putting into my body and my workouts were not as regimented. This made it harder for me to lose weight in a pleasing pattern. Now the scale goes down about 1 pound each week. That is a super healthy pattern of weight loss because it is not too fast. 

However, I do not want to just lose weight! When I reach my desired weight, a healthy BMI, I wish to gain a little back in muscle. More muscle = MORE FOOD. And I sure do love food. 

I hope this helps! Any other questions more specifically aimed at my diet and exercise, please feel free to ask me!

  • comics are expensive
  • even if comics weren’t expensive you owe it to no one to keep up with every title published. not finding everything interesting doesn’t make you a bad fan, it makes you enjoy comics and not do this out of necessity. it’s not your job, you’re not getting paid for it. may as well do only the things that make you have fun
  • i go through periods of time where i don’t touch comics for months and then come back to find approximately two things and a half changed because the pacing is slower than a turtle being gently patted down. people died? nice, they’ll be back in two weeks
  • if it takes longer, they never physically died
  • it’s a rule
  • i don’t know who agreed to this but it’s a rule just take it
  • if you have this insecurity because of someone “calling you out” on this send me their address so i can eat them

anonymous asked:

How many children do you think they would adopt?

Victor was most likely an only child and is probably starving for a big family, so when he decides to bring it up to Yuuri he spends an afternoon practicing what he’s going to say. He wears a track into the floor from pacing the living room, Makkachin half-watching from where she’s curled up on the couch, and he never manages to say what he wants to say. It changes with each practice, which means he fumbles every single time, and every iteration is worse than the last. Finally, he plants his feet down so hard that he might actually grow roots, throws his shoulders back, and shouts, “YUURI KATSUKI I LOVE YOU AND I WANT TO BUY A BIG HOUSE AND HAVE 900 BABIES WITH YOU.”

And Yuuri, who–unbeknownst to Victor–has been home this entire time, pokes his head out of the study and, mouth twisted in amusement, says, “Want to be a little more realistic?”

After a long, thoughtful pause, Victor tries, “60 babies.”

“Two,” Yuuri says, flatter than the soda that Victor left open on the kitchen counter a week ago. The soda that Yuuri hasn’t touched to prove a point. A point that’s obviously been missed. “We can have two.”

Because Yuuri’s seen what three children can do, and neither of them have Takeshi’s patience or Yuuko’s apparent death wish. 

Miraculous Acts of Kindness

With everything going on lately, and with the fandom feeling the effects of negativity throughout, I’ve decided it’s time for a change of pace.

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.” or some variation thereof.

Well, I’m challenging the fandom to do just that.. let’s practice some Miraculous Acts of Kindness. And the great thing is, this is not limited or exclusive to content-creators, like artists and writers– THIS IS FOR EVERYONE!

There is no limit to how you can participate~

~ You can pick ONE PERSON and send them positive affirmations and compliments in their ask box randomly throughout the day.

~You can spend 30 minutes leaving comments on as many fics as you can!

~You can post a shoutout to some of your favorite people in the fandom, promoting them for others to follow!

~You can tag people in positive posts that will make them smile or brighten their day!

~You can pick MULTIPLE PEOPLE and send each of them one kind message to remind them that they are loved and are brilliant human beings!

Everyone keeps talking about wanting appreciation, to be seen and heard and loved… So instead of talking about it, let’s TAKE ACTION. Let’s start being appreciative and kind and welcoming and MIRACULOUS towards each other!

Become someone’s lucky charm, become someone’s miracle, and let’s make every day miraculous!!!

Imagine:

When Steve overhears you telling Natasha that you don’t want to get married, he starts interrogating you wanting to know why, and somehow, he tries to change your mind because he’s imagined you as his wife a thousand times even though he hasn’t asked you on a proper date yet.

10 Rookie K-Pop Groups To Look Out For In 2017

This year has brought us an incredible amount of new music, new groups, and all around incredible talent. But with the new year right around the corner, it’s time to get ready to usher in even more. Here are ten rookie groups — including the ones who will soon be making their official debut — you can expect to see a lot more of in 2017.

1. K.A.R.D
Making the most unexpected debut of the year, DSP Media’s new group K.A.R.D is a co-ed one already turning a lot of heads with their extremely catchy debut, “Oh NaNa.” The group, consisting of both male and female members, is a venture not often seen in K-pop. And the change of pace is not just refreshing. It’s impressive. In less than three weeks since their debut, K.A.R.D has already garnered three million views (and counting) for their first single. We can’t wait to see what other milestones they’ll reach in 2017.

2. Pledis Girlz
The first girl group from Pledis Entertainment in four years, Pledis Girlz is set to make their official debut in 2017. But the girl group hasn’t been sitting around idly until then. Members Lim Nayoung and Zhou Jieqiong have spent the year promoting as members of project group I.O.I., while the remaining members have dropped countless practice videos showcasing their vocal and dance talents.

In addition to this, the group also released the pre-debut track “We” written and composed by the members. Pledis Girlz is overflowing with talent, and their official debut will definitely be one to keep on your radar.

3. Varsity
Varsity is a 12-member boy group set to debut within the first week of the new year. The group has seven Korean members and five Chinese members, and is aiming for a debut exploding with charisma and power. Coined as a “global idol group,” Varsity also boasts multilingual members such as Seungbo — who will be able to communicate with fans in Arabic, English, Korean, and French. With qualities like that, we can’t wait to ring in the new year with their official debut.

4. Bolbbalgan4
Two years after competing on “Superstar K4,” female duo Bolbbalgan4 made their official debut earlier this year. The duo is already making waves with their single “Galaxy,” which showcases their unique indie style. In addition to the lead single and mini album “Red Ickle,” Bolbbalgan4 has also released a full album titled “Red Planet.”

5. Pentagon
Having dropped two EPs already since their October debut, rookie boy group Pentagon is on no track to slow down. The group is the latest addition to Cube Entertainment’s artist roster, and have already shown their dedication and talent through their survival program “Pentagon Maker.” Through songs like “Gorilla,” “You Are,” and “Can You Feel It,” Pentagon is proving that they can tackle any genre and make a name for themselves in the new year.

6. VICTON
Having debuted only a month ago, VICTON is already separating themselves from the pack with their addictive title track “I’m Fine.” The song feels fresh, yet affectionately familiar with its throwback vibes; it’s also a firm indication of what the group can bring to the K-pop scene in the future. Their first EP “Voice to New World” houses their introduction track “What Time Is It Now,” which makes you anticipate their future concepts and comebacks for the new year even more.

7. Bonus Baby
Definitely one of the more younger groups in K-pop, girl group Bonus Baby will showcase their cheerful image with their debut in the new year. Artists such as NC.A, GP Basic, and NCT Dream have proven that a young age is no reason to overlook true talent, and we can’t wait to see what Bonus Baby will have to offer with their official debut soon.

8. MYTEEN
Seven-member boy group MYTEEN hails from the label Music Works, which notably features Minzy and Baek Ji Young. Former “Superstar K6” contestant and soloist Song Yu Vin is also a member of the rookie group. Although MYTEEN hasn’t made their official debut yet, the group regularly meets fans through “MYTEEN Show” from their official YouTube page and performs in various cities in Korea. 2017 will definitely be the year they make their mark.

9. BULLDOK
Bypassing the usual cute and innocent girl group concept, quintet Bulldok burst onto the scene with a fierce image and an even bolder debut with their single, ” Why Not.” The ladies are ready to claim their spot in the ever-competitive music scene, and with a sound like this, they’re sure to find their true breakout in 2017.

10. VROMANCE
Debuting earlier this year with the funky single “She,” MAMAMOO’s brother group VROMANCE is a fresh vocal quartet worth keeping an eye on. The group features four members with incredible vocals, charisma, and style. In the new year, VROMANCE is set to showcase a different, softer facet of their talent with their upcoming comeback. And if it’s anything like their debut, it’s sure to be breathtaking.

I know you’re in pain. It hurts in ways you can’t even begin to describe and even if you could, no one seems to want to listen.
Sure, people care and try to help… for a time… but when you don’t seem to be getting any better, after a while, they get tired of listening… Eventually it becomes easier to keep it all inside.
I know you feel like it will never get better and you’ll never be okay again. It’s been like this for so long now that you think if things were ever going to change they would have by now so this is how it’s always going to be… but it’s not. I promise it’s not.
You learn cope, it just takes time and I know it feels like you’ve given it enough time already but not everyone heals at the same pace.
Tell yourself it’s okay to feel the way that you do.
Nobody else on this earth has lived through your life to be in any kind of position to understand your battles. Nobody else but you has walked in your shoes to be any kind of comparison on how you should be feeling right now or whether or not you should be ‘better’.
I won’t lie to you – what you’re going through will always leave its mark upon you as any trauma does – and that’s normal too. Nobody looks back on a traumatic life experience and giggles about it… But it’s this all-consuming depressive state… these overwhelming feelings you can’t control… the way those feelings isolate you and make you feel vulnerable and alone – THAT is what won’t last forever.
It DOES get better… you DO find acceptance. Not all at once – its gradual… like a stormy day or a long dark night… you don’t just blink and suddenly it’s a blue sky. Storm clouds part slowly, allowing brief flashes of sunlight at first… then eventually disappear… Dark nights end slowly as a new day begins to dawn…
Acceptance is the same… and I know you have the courage to wait for it…

milky way, part two.

we came
from the same
chain reaction

i swear i could feel you
an eternity ago

a long time before
the lapse in gravity
that led to such a
celestial seperation
ending our celebration

you may not remember
but once upon a time
before time ever existed
we were two parts, whole
and everything was holy

we were once a love
unlike any other

you may not remember
the birth of the universe
or how, on the very first day
something changed, you felt
like you just needed space

i remember
watching you
move further away

i felt your heart race
into unknown distance
and i just couldn’t wait
to start my endless chase
through the macrocosm
but i just couldn’t keep up
with your pace

we were once a love
unlike any other

i swear i could feel you
long before that day

and i’ll never rest
until you let me
prove my case

we are evidence
of quantum
entanglement

we are two hearts
both the same
no matter how far
apart we are

i swear i still feel you
every single day

I needed a change of pace from OC October, and to take a breather in general… So here’s a little bit of fanart for SugarScript’s game, Cute Demon Crashers.

It’s a visual novel about a succubus and a few incubi who crash your house (hence the title) and stay for a few days. You can choose to have fun with any of them, none of them or all of them. Whatever you choose, the interactions are always positive. You can even opt out at almost any point of your intimate times if you’re uncomfortable. The whole point of the game is to promote safety, honesty, consent and comfort between partners. They also challenge stereotypes that people might have about certain aspects of sex.

The characters are all sweet and well thought out, on top of various other aspects of the game. The art is nice, the voices are excellent and they even included a dyslexic font.

If you have the time I’d definitely recommend giving it a play. Even if you’re not into porn games, it’s still fun and sweet and I’d totally recommend it. They took something that could have turned into just another fetish fuel game and turned it into a gem.

hey so i’m way too lazy to make a separate twitter for spoilers so i’m dumping my kh 0.2 liveblog here, under a cut! it is RIFE with SPOILERS so this is your fair warning about that. also, since cuts don’t work on mobile, PLEASE SCROLL LIKE THE WIND if you are on your phone and averse to these things

Happy Birthday to the fictional love of my life, Nico di Angelo. Thank you for giving me a relate-able character at an early age and bringing A1 representation to a children’s book that is popular world wide. 


Nico sighed tiredly, his phone shoved into his back pocket as he fumbled with the keys of the apartment and tried not to squish the flowers that were tucked under his arm. It was too late for his brain to function properly, though it was only just past ten, and he was really looking forward to crawling into bed with Will, since he hadn’t seen him all day.

Nico really hated closing the flower shop. He usually worked earlier shifts, (despite his aversion to mornings) so that he could get home about the time Will did. Will rose with the sun and worked as the head of cardiology at a nearby hospital from eight to five, a nice change of pace from the old crazy hours that he had as an ER doctor. Still, Nico hadn’t gone to work until 2, before Will had returned home, and given that Will routinely got up around 5, he was usually asleep by the time the flower shop closed.

It was only a little disappointing today, because it happened to be Nico’s birthday. What kind of adult forgets their own birthday?

Nico hadn’t even realized until one of the managers wished him a happy birthday, and he glanced at the calendar with a vacant expression. Will likely hadn’t remembered either—If he had, he would have left Nico a note or something. It wasn’t as if Nico could expect it when he’d forgotten himself, but it still bummed him out a little to know they wouldn’t be able to celebrate. He was turning 25, after all.

Finally, he’d managed to get the key into the lock, pushing the door open and dropping his bag haphazardly to the floor. He needed to put the flowers in water, (Will loved the things, and Nico could never stop himself from bringing them home,) grab something to eat, and go get in bed. He was opening the next morning, set to bring ‘get well soon’ deliveries to Will’s hospital, so he’d shower in the morning before work.

Holding onto the hope that Will had cooked and left the leftovers in the fridge for Nico, he kicked off his shoes and sighed with relief. Dragging his phone out of his pocket, he dropped the keys on the counter, unlocking the device as he shuffled toward the kitchen, scrolling through notifications before setting an alarm for the next morning.

He hadn’t even realized the dim light coming from the kitchen table when he walked in, gently setting the flowers on the counter before bending over to grab a vase, pausing when he hear a quiet chuckle from across the room. Slowly, he turned his head, shocked to find Will, leaning against the table, clad in pajama pants and slippers. The table was donned with a vase full of roses, a couple of wine glasses, and a bowl of something still steaming.

Taken aback, Nico cleared his throat. “Um… Hey.”

Will rolled his eyes. “Hey. How was work?” He asked, stepping over and getting the vase for him, filling it part ways with water and carefully arranging the flowers inside.

“It was fine.” Nico said, glancing from Will back to the table. “Will, you didn’t—“

Will pressed a finger to his lips. “Don’t. I didn’t have to, I wanted to.” He said, smiling warmly. Taking Nico’s shoulders, he walked him toward the table, pulling the chair out and pushing it in once Nico sat. “Happy birthday,” He hummed, kissing his cheek before moving to take a seat on the other side.

Nico swallowed past the lump in his throat. “I didn’t even remember.” He said, eyes following Will as his fiancé dished out a serving of some sort of pasta dish for him. “Why did you—“

“It’s your birthday.” Will laughed, handing Nico a bowl. “Of course I remembered. It’s my job to remember that stuff. I have a gift, too, but I know you’re tired, so I figured we could open it at dinner this weekend. Hazel is coming in.”

“Seriously?” Nico asked incredulously, picking up his fork. “How did you manage that?”

“Lots of secret planning and airline struggles,” Will chuckled, taking a bite of his pasta, and nudging Nico with his foot. “Come on, babe, I know you’re hungry.”

“I’m starving.” Nico admitted, spearing a bite with his fork before chewing slowly. “It’s really good. I can’t believe you did all of this for me.”

“Of course I did, Nico. I love you. As if I’d let you spend your birthday alone.” He said, taking his hand from across the table and squeezing. “I have wine, too, but since we both have work in the morning, I figured maybe apple juice instead.” He said, brandishing the bottle with a flourish. Nico giggled around a bite of pasta.

“Anyways, you deserve this treatment all the time. What kind of fiancé would I be if I just left you hanging?” Will joked, pouring the juice into wine glasses before setting it aside.

They chatted idly while they ate, Nico chastising Will for waiting so long for dinner and for skipping out on valuable sleep just to surprise him. Still, the sentiment warmed his heart, maybe made him a little misty eyed, and reminded him exactly why this was the man that he wanted to marry.

Tag teaming the dishes, Will pressed sleepy kisses all over Nico’s head as they made their way to the bedroom, pulling back the covers and curling up right next to him. “I love you.” Will said, smiling.

Nico hummed. “I love you too. Thank you, Will.”

Television off, Nico was able to doze off in a comfortable silence, Will’s steady heartbeat and the assurance that meeting him was the best decision of his life, lulling him to sleep.
