trophy life

This is a video I keep in my phone and listen to it once in a while when I’m down. 

It’s one hell of a gifset, but I just don’t want to cut anything he said because every word shows his precious growing mindset. Everyone has weakness and difficult times, but it is so important that one can be critical of oneself even if others are lenient, be conscious of their ability and goal, be realistic but also optimistic about the future, and have a fire to keep going despite hardship. Each of those characteristics is good enough, but it’s such an amazing thing to find this all in one person, and condensed in just a few sentences in this interview.

Beside his lovely performances, this is the reason why I admire this person so much. And because life is so hard for me recently, let me just translate this and gain some strength from it now then.

“it’s not a big deal,” yuuri says.
“uhh, no, it is,” victor says. “this is disgusting and intolerable. you are not my best friend. i am not your coach.”

“but you are both those things,” yuuri says, and victor shakes his head.

“you’re so much more,” victor says. “my fiancé . my love. they simplify us and remove our identity by calling me just your coach. i may be your coach in the ice skating world, but i am also your fiancé. i will always be your fiancé first.”

“okay,” yuuri says. “if it’s that important to you.”

“it is,” victor insists.

victor blasts the editor of the magazine on twitter and practically starts an internet riot. yuuri pretends not to see the pleased expression on victor’s face the next morning when the article’s headline changes from “celebrity sighting: katsuki yuuri, and coach/choreographer, victor nikiforov, spotted in paris” to “celebrity sighting: katsuki yuuri and fiancé victor nikiforov spotted in paris.”

It’s been so long since I got on Tumblr during a Chelsea game I forgot how Chelsea fans cling to their one ucl trophy for dear life and use it as their argument for literally everything

Happy 30th Birthday, Gerard Piqué Bernabéu! | 02.02.1987.
Feliz Cumpleaños, Gerard Piqué Bernabéu!

I’m very happy, as I was when I wasn’t winning trophies. Football gives you life, or at least a sense of life. You can be depressed but when you enter onto a field and see the ball, you forget everything else.
