try-to-make-things-work

Stop wasting your time with individuals who aren’t really all about you. Stop trying to force connections that aren’t all there, or telling yourself that maybe the reason love isn’t happening for you is because your expectations are too high. It’s not unrealistic to desire a partner that is attentive to your needs and wants, and who puts in the effort to not only get to know you, but keep you happy and feeling secure. Don’t compromise the things you value in a relationship for people who keep missing the mark. Your time could be much better spent. Some day someone is going to walk into your life and make you realize just why you should never settle, and they will be so bold and clear with their love that you’ll never have to think twice.

and so the saga of these a+ drawings continues

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

Pines Height Chart Ft. Teen Mystery Twins :D

Going by the headcanon that both Dipper and Mabel get taller than Stan (and therefore Ford too) I decided to draw a really dumb height chart! Stan is clearly not happy about being the shortest haha (tho he’s secretly proud of his nibblings for getting so tall and strong) 

Mabel’s still the Alpha Twin, of course :D

  • Everyone: Tony, this is all your fault!
  • Tony: I actually don't understand what you all want from me. I'm trying my best and hardest to make things work and the world a better place but y'all are too busy criticizing my past self and all my past mistakes and thinking that I'm still that past self who hasn't changed one bit. So until you learn how to stop blaming me for things that I haven't done and don't do, I'll be taking a small vacation with Rhodey in Bahamas, okay bye.

even is honestly the most selfless person 

we already knew he had been selfless this whole time, slowly sacrificing his own well-being just to try to make things work and just to try to protect isak

and once again this morning, he tried to make a sacrifice. he wanted to end things because he thought he was making isak sad. he thought he was going to hurt him. deep down, even wanted isak to stay by his side, but he still tried to push him away because he thought that was what was best for isak. not for him, but for isak

i hope even learns that he doesn’t have to give all the time, i hope even learns to receive. i hope isak finds the right way to make him understand that his own happiness and well-being do matter, to him and to isak, that they’re not something he should sacrifice, they’re not something isak wants him to sacrifice. not ever again 

Shawn Jackson and Hasse Bernfield, better known as Whit and Slug.  These two are Nana’s adopted grandsons, and certified little shits– ESPECIALLY Whit.  Both of them have spent most of their lives on the planet too.

Whit came to the planet with their (rich) family to live in one of the colony.  They got their nickname because of the old Whitworth rifle they carried around: it’s a family heirloom and they would always brag that they would inherit it and use it one day.  They’re kind of annoying, 110% sass, and a joker.  It was them who told Nana all that dumb shit that she totally believes.

Slug’s parents died in a mining accident and he became a bit of an outcast in the community.  He wouldn’t let anyone near him and ended up bullying kids out of food and money.  When he tried to steal from Whit, an outcast in their own right, they became fast friends.  He got his name from his weapon of choice: the shotgun.

Also Whit is totally pining for Slug.

I don’t think that it’s all that surprising or unrealistic that Cas returned to heaven with Kelvin; people forget that Cas’ time on earth is literally a blip in his long existence. His connection to heaven isn’t so easily severed despite how the angels have treated him, and despite what Cas said in 12.12. Cas missing his old home and family, and his willingness to try and make things work with them does not negate how he feels about the Winchesters.

Also, I don’t think it’s a bad thing that Cas returned to heaven because there’s a lot of lingering unresolved issues Cas has on that front. Think about it, the only way Cas could ever truly move on and finally be at peace with staying on Earth with the Winchesters permanently would be to return to heaven and settle things there once and for all.

Dabb said that this season was about looking for a place to belong so hopefully Cas returning to heaven is just another step in the process of him really realizing that his place is on Earth with Sam and Dean.

Sometimes i wonder if shitty customers even stop to think that if they acted nice, I (and most retail employees i know) will try their hardest to make things work for the customer. But guess what? When you're a dick, I'm not gonna mark that item down for you (or whatever they wanted), even though I can. You do NOT get a reward for being an asshole.

I am made from the saddest kind of poetry, the words flowing through my veins are more bridges we should burn because a love like this shouldn’t exist inside of my souls that still long when I no longer remember what it is exactly that I wish for– maybe it’s the best friend feeling, the I can share anything with you feeling, the I could tell you that you’re my heart without fear of rejection, the I’ll kiss you goodnight but these tears need to happen less often, the we’ll argue but in the end, I’ll always try to make things work, the I’m sorry after telling you that I’d leave because I’m a shitty lover, the I’m not perfect but you’re not either, we can be imperfect together, the I’m not the one for you right now type of guy, the last words you said inked into my mind, the I need to get over this really quickly or I’ll be going insane feeling, the stress that blows over as smoke, you’re in my lungs and I’m still suffering– I don’t remember much, hell, I don’t feel much, shit, I don’t know much. Writing is an outlet that I no longer understand. It’s just more words trying to pull meaning from pointless things. Poetry is honest, so I’ll be honest. I don’t know what love feels like anymore. Not family love. We’re not talking about that. Not tough love, we’ve got enough scars. I’m not even sure if it’s even romantic love anymore, you’re a movie waiting to end and I’m just the credits that’ll never roll over and play dead. I am made from the saddest kind of words– I can only be heard at 4 am and if you’re really listening, I’m just talking about the bad things after the good. I don’t write about the good anymore, damn, I don’t think I’ve ever tried. Would you like a small detail to it? You’d like that wouldn’t you? Darling, you’re not getting anything from me. Those memories belong to our past– it’s just one big loop. I’ve been jumping and it’s never back into your arms, it’s just who you used to be. Some nights, I dream about who I used to be. You know something? I really did love us at one point, but now? I just write about feelings that’ll make sense one day. A confusion without the question. An answer that’s not scared of the truth. The lie that’s beautiful, inside and out. The words… the poetry… I’m just another heart waiting to bleed. More words designed to make people feel. The writer’s curse. A heart bursting into stomach butterflies that has waited a thousand years to escape. A painting waiting to be a masterpiece. A prick from thorns waiting for the rose to die. A star still explaining itself to veins that bleeds gold. A poet without feelings, darling, I still feel everything and I hate it.

“It’s like the harder I try, the more I fail.”

You know what hurts?

Alot of people threw so much shade and bashed CL for not having her album done. They strongly voiced how she was ruining 2NE1 because of her need to go solo. People said Minzy left because of her too….When in reality CL gave up her solo promotions for the same group you all claimed she destroyed. At the end of the day CL always puts 2NE1 first no matter what and has always cared for the members. Not just because she was their leader, but they were her family for way more than 7 years. 

I think it bugs me more than it should because I’ve seen the bashing all year long come to find out CL has done nothing but try to make 2NE1 work? This is the most frustrating thing I have ever witness.

I will miss these girls and I will continue to support them individually. I just wish they got a proper send off.

it’s just so important how you can see that maggie gave in this kiss everything she wanted to give in their first kiss but without guilt, without any other thoughts, just kissing the girl she wants to kiss as if the world was literally about to end because yeah maybe the world is about to end or maybe one of them will die the next day who knows? what she knows though is that she cant live with herself if she doesnt try the best she can to make things work with alex because she owes it to her and to herself as well so screw everyone, screw “lets be friends”, screw taking it slow because life is indeed too short specially in their world so yeah sure, it might not work but hell, it might also be the most wonderful story of her life and with the woman she loves so i guess, as cat grant would say, maggie just dived.
