try something new with savings

concept : I am laying on the ground and my hair is intertwined with the grass. the dirt is the dirt but it is so much more than just dirt. the sunshine is pouring it’s love onto my face and my body is warm. I am here and I am alive and the world is turning. there are good days and there are bad days but today I chose to remember the good ones. there is love in my heart and for once that’s enough to sustain me for a while. there is sunshine and happy days ahead.

okay first things first: i love and support everyone equally in bts but i feel i need to get this off my chest. can we just appreciate Kim Namjoon?
can we appreciate how much he’s done not only for bts, for the boys, for bighit, for kpop, for his family but for his korean and international fans as well?

like without him bangtan wouldn’t exist. well maybe it would but not in this kind of form. and let’s be honest; this bangtan is the best bangtan.

he’s such an amazing leader too. he’s always there for the other members whenever they’re sad, exhausted, in need of positivity, feel like giving up… they always have a shoulder they can lean on and it’s Namjoon’s. he always makes sure that everyone is okay, everyone is happy and everyone does their best and works hard. he’s the one who always wants the boys to be a part of english conversations to so he helps them with their english whenever he can. he translates english stuff to korean so the boys won’t feel like they’re left out of something. he protects his bandmates at all cost but he also scolds them if they’ve done something wrong (lol papa Joon has no chill)

he proved that just because you’re coming from a small company, you can still make a name for yourself in the music industry. after all: not the company but your work will affect people.

because of Namjoon bts didn’t stop until they became the first kpop group to win an award, break a voting record with 300 million (!!!) votes but still staying the same humble guys they really are. they proved that a simple group that has an amazing leader at front is capable to do anything. buf ofc all 7 of the boys needed to be a part of this to make it work. y'know TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK❤️

can we also appreciate that RapMon proved his family that they made the right choice that day when they allowed him to be a musician instead of making sure he cares about university and stuff. he proved that his family made the right choice because now everyone knows who bts are and with this he shut every hater’s mouth.

and now comes the most important thing: THANK YOU NAMJOON. Thank you for always talking to us i-fans in english, for teaching the boys english, for translating english speeches to korean so your k-fans can understand you as well and basically for inspiring us. For never giving up on us. For always being there with us. For saving our lives. For taking care of us. For talking to us through your lyrics. For never taking a step back whenever you experience hate, a bad scandal or something tough. Thank you for supporting us, loving us, for empowering us to be stronger, to be more confident. Thank you for telling us not to give up on our dreams, never be affraid to try out something new.

Thank you so much for everything, Kim Namjoon. You saved our lives and you changed our lives. Thank you for being the best leader and taking care of our boys. ARMY LOVES YOU RAP MONSTER❤️

No, La La Land was not racist.

No, it was not about a white man trying to save jazz.

No, John Legend is not a hack. He is not out to ruin jazz. He’s actually trying something new which could be working.

La La Land is not about jazz or saving jazz it is about these two people trying to obtain their dreams and the relationship they form. Ryan Gosling’s dream is to share what he considers classic jazz with the people he can. That is not saving jazz. That is not in contrast with John Legend’s desire to make jazz popular again. John Legend is not the bad guy. He’s not a sell out. He’s not a hack. He’s just got different goals than Ryan Gosling.

Just because you don’t understand something don’t bullshit that you do.

PS: I probably wouldn’t care as much about this but it’s just been a long day.

“I have to stop him. I’m sorry. Goodbye.”

have a little doodle of young Melarue in the Four Horsemom’s AU aka the au where Melarue is a baby and is raised by Maibrit, Lela, Kel, and Olwyn. Pffft Mel, you think somehow you’re going to sneak out to go and fight the Dread Wolf without one of your mom’s noticing? Not in a million years. 

anonymous asked:

I want to go vegan, do you have any starter tips for me?

  • Educate yourself. This is going to make everything so much easier. I always recommend watching Forks Over Knives (talk about the health side of things), Cowspiracy (environmental) and Earthlings (animal rights)
  • Get excited, this is something that is awesome!!!
  • Start saving and trying out new recipes!
  • Figure out your favorite foods/what you eat a lot of and see if you can make them vegan look for replacements or see if there are ingredients you don’t need!
  • If you are a big meat eater try fake meats (i like gardein brand) or veggie burgers are always yummy too!
  • I use earth balance butter, it taste the same as the butter you are used to
  • Try multiple non dairy milks, there are so many to choose from so make sure you find your favorite!
  • Good breakfast ideas: toast with nut butter, oatmeal, smoothies, tofu scramble, waffles (most gluten free frozen waffles are also vegan)
  • Make sure to keep some vegan snacks and desserts around, so if you get a craving you won’t grab something non vegan! Most chips are vegan and so are oreos!
  • If you are eating out, try looking at the menu before hand. Also if you can’t seem to find anything on the menu look at the sides, normally you can build your own meal! 
  • I always keep nuts or bars in my purse and car in case i can’t find anything to eat!
  • Ben and jerry’s almond milk Cookies and Peanut butter icecream
  • Focus on the basic things that are cheap and build meals from them! Thing like beans, rice, potatoes, pasta, bread etc etc these things will be filling!
  • vegan foods tend to be lower in calories, so you will most likely need to be eating more food to get the calories you need and to feel full! This is totally normal!
  • Don’t be alarmed, most things in stores labled as vegan will be quite pricey but get used to checking lables, you’ll be surprised at how many things are accidentally vegan!
  • If you eat at fast food a lot google what things you can get there that are vegan, there are more options than you think!
  • If you mess up that is okay!!!! Going vegan is about doing your best and doing what you can, we all have days that are hard or that we mess up, no point getting down about it!
Lyrics (1/?):"Coming Home" by Diddy-Dirty Money ft. Skylar Grey

↳ “I’m back where I belong, yeah, I never felt so strong. I’m feeling like there’s nothing that I can’t try and if you’re with me, put your hands up high. If you ever lost a light before, this one’s for you. And you, the dreams are for you.”

“"It’s a good thing one of us has some sense.”

1. Strive for your best in all you do. Whether it be your studies, fitness & health goals, building relationships, saving money or trying something new. Half assed efforts never got you far and you’ll feel much better about yourself if you know you put your whole heart into it.

2. Set a person goal (of any sort) and for once in your life actually commit to it! This could include writing in a journal daily, being able to run for more than 5 minutes or even making an effort to get in contact with old friends. Commit to the goal for one month and all the other months in the year will follow as habit.

3. Travel. Or make plans to! It will broaden your horizons of knowledge, generate a different perspective for culture and make you appreciate your home more.

4. Make a conscious effort to save money. Stop living off each pay check. At each pay set amount to save and the rest is yours to spend how you desire, even if that amount is only $10 (it will build up over time and you will be grateful to yourself)!

5. Learn to love yourself! I cannot emphasise this one enough! I understand every person is different so it is up to you find what works best for you, but find something to do which slowly makes you fall in love with yourself. This may involve looking in the mirror and saying one thing you like about yourself that day, or posting affirmations all over your bedroom walls, or even wearing your favourite lipstick every time you go out. Whatever works do it! Learn to create self love rather than relying on the words of others to build you up because they can just as easily tear you down!

6. Be more open to new experiences. Ditch the fear of the unknown and live! Form new relationships, start a new hobby, go somewhere you’ve never been or maybe do something you’ve always wanted to but never been bold enough to try!

7. Cross something off your bucket list (or make a bucket list first haha)! Go sky diving, jump in a shark cage, climb a mountain, visit a magical place, or learn a new language. Skies the limit!

8. Reject all negativity. Whether it involves yourself, or others around you. You don’t need that extra baggage in your life. Catch yourself saying/thinking something negative towards an aspect in your life? Make an effort the flip it into a positive! Stop yourself in your tracks, regather yourself and say something positive instead. People will want to be around you so much more just to be apart of all your positive vibes!

The signs when bored

Aries: Often gets bored when they have to concentrate for long periods of time. Aries don’t do a lot to cure their boredom, except complain to others about it.

Taurus: These people treasure the quiet moments in life, as they don’t come often enough. If a Taurus does become bored however, they may pick up a quiet and calming hobby, such as scrapbooking, or playing an instrument.

Gemini: Even though Gemini’s become bored easily, they are always on the go and rarely stop moving long enough to become bored. However, when they do, they’ll either talk to friends or become lost in their thoughts.

Cancer: Cancer’s have a habit of spending a lot of time alone, especially when bored, and for them, this may bring on feelings of sadness and loneliness. Many Cancer’s channel their creative side when bored, and do activities such as baking, or even scouring the internet/creating their own memes.

Leo: Leo’s often try to start a conversation with someone when they are bored, and if they aren’t receiving to right sort of responses, they may try to annoy the other person. They need someone to cure their boredom and it has to be right away.

Sagittarius: Most likely playing some form of video game, whether multiplayer and online, or by themselves in a dark room.

Capricorn: Internal debate whether to start the thing that needs to be done, or to continue procrastinating. Often exercise, watch T.V. or even stare into space.

Aquarius: Either trying to talk to/annoy someone or sleeping. Aquarius’s may also try to learn something new when they are bored. Anything to save them from the torture that is boredom.

Announcing RVB Ladies' Night!

So, hey, remember rvb happy hour?

In keeping with the theme of an rvb fandom bar, a new event’s starting up as of right now, called rvb ladies night! This is a fanworks fest to celebrate the female characters on the show. Fanart, fanfic, fanvids–everything is welcome!

As a side note, I’m obvs not gonna sit here defining what is and isn’t a female-character-centric fanwork. Use your own judgment. But if you’re writing fic about a female character pining away for a dude or drawing fanart about a female character getting beat up to advance a dude’s character development… you may be doing it wrong.

Consider femslash. Consider female friendships. Consider AU fics in which your favourite female characters survive and make it through unscathed. Consider ridiculously convoluted situations in which South, Jensen, and Sister somehow team up to save the universe. Try something new.

Put your fanworks in the tag rvb ladies night so they can be easily found. We’ll run this officially through September 30th to give folks plenty of time to contribute, and there’ll be updates and mini-events throughout.

Have fun!

Every once in a while I remember that the Katrina storyline is over forever in Sleepy Hollow and I just get this massive smile on my face because we’re free.
