4. I kind of have an unhealthy obsession with watching react videos

5. I have a major major MAJOR fear of spiders, and when I’m talking major, it’s really bad, I get nightmares about them pretty much every night and will cry if I see one or even a picture

She loves to tell jokes that she could only understand. She likes to wear a dress and sway around in her heels. Unfortunately, she can’t dance at all, but she’s trying her best to learn. She loves to observe people whenever she’s traveling and make funny stories out of them. It’s her favorite past time so don’t be shocked when she silently giggle out of nowhere.
She loves to cook, but most of the time, it tastes bad. Compliment it through eating them with her. She loves to sing while washing the dishes. Enjoy the moment because you will see her in her most real form.
She loves to listen to stories, stare and smile without any reasons. She loves to play her curly hair and when she randomly push you, don’t get mad at her because she wants to get your attention. Sometimes, she becomes crazy when she saw someone staring at you. She will hold you closer and make them feel you are hers. That’s how she is, accept her.
She loves to wiggle her feet at the bed and tell stories that she experienced throughout her life until she gets tired. She loves to trace spine and put someone’s arms around her because it gives her solace. Your arms will become her home; she will fall in love with the idea of sleep inside of them. Let her. And wait, she snores, and I could tell you, it’s cute.
She has flaws, but it differentiates her from the crowd. It makes her complete. You may not understand her every time but try your best to because she needs you. She’s maybe crazy and weird, but she’s secretly hoping to end up with you.
She’s a unique kind of star, and you could never find someone like her in this world or in another. She may not be perfect, but she’s perfectly fit for you.
She chose you over anyone else.
Love her, be grateful.

some seamless tinyDragon patterns for your seamless tinyDragoon patterning needs 

please note that the dragons on the last one are transparent

AND ANOTHER THING….at a certain point, seeing a Woman of Color and being like “I want her to punch me in the mouth and push me off a cliff” kind of ‘compliments’ on her appearance gets SUPER CREEPY and PERFORMATIVE. Speaking specifically about Black Women (because *I am one) it lets me know that you project a certain kind of aggression into us and want to make it clear that you’re not like ~other people~ who find us unattractive and unworthy, you’re one of the ~good people~ who just neeeeed to make it abundantly clear that you’re just SO IN AWE AND ATTRACTED TO US that you say really weird violent things.

And I’m not talking about you saying it once or twice or the exaggerated humor we’ve developed as a consequence of being here on Tumblr. If you look at a WoC and CONSTANTLY have stuff like that to say….you’re a creep.

*gender presentation wise not gender identity

blindiemac  asked:

So I've been thinking about the retirement au a lot today (work has been slow...) and I was thinking. Yuuri strikes me as the kind of man not to talk about his accomplishments, but he will gush about his friends. Like, "My friend Phichit just won Gold at the Four Continents!" "Chris was so good at the European Championships!" "My unofficial son Yurio just won at Worlds!" things like that. I imagine him talking about these things, but like his friends don't know he really knows these (cont.)

(Cont.) people. Like they think the beautiful, untouchable, hot Yuri Katsuki-Nikiforov is just like a massive fanboy for figure skating (which, true he is, but he’s also been known as Japan’s Ace so…) and think it is just a cute little character quirk that makes him even more adorable. After all, his friends are not into skating so they have no idea who these people are. They do however know Yuuri is gay (or at least bi) because he regularly refers to this guy Viktor as his husband (apparently he’s some big shot figure skater that Yuuri has the cutest little (massive) crush on, can you even believe how cute this guy is?). But Yuuri isn’t really married because he would wear a ring on his left finger if he was, like come on. It all comes to a head like it does in your retirement au by Yuuri being recognized by fans, with some added hilarity of “I talk about my figure skating friends all the time?" 

"We thought you were just a really big fan!" 

"I talk about my husband all the time?" 

"Yeah and Jenny talks about her rock star "wife” all the time too!“ 

"wait, you’re not really married?" 

Bc of course Yuuri would not find it weird to be married to a rock star. He married Viktor Nikiforov after all. (fin.) 

*Dead*

HOLY SHIT THIS IS BEAUTIFUL????

And completely and utterly plausible omg. Because that is literally exactly the kind of language we use here on tumblr XDD Even I call my favs as my sons or daughters, or how I call JJ as the king of my heart.

Wowow, okay, so the only plot hole in this au has been filled, we finally have a good explanation for why Yuuri’s friends don’t know he’s married!!! This is totally canon…in my headcanon XD

But then also can you imagine when his friends do finally find out that the person Yuuri has been calling his husband all this time is actually his husband, they insist on getting to meet him.

Except maybe that week Skate America is going on or whatever.

So all these famous skaters are in the US, and Otabek’s competing too. And Yura wants to spend some time with the bff, so Yuuri and Viktor decide to have a house party after the competition is over.

And Yuuri’s college friends are invited over.

And they get there, and they just kinda stare around at everyone like OAO

Because they’re all lowkey terrified and highkey intimidated because???? This party is basically a who’s who of the figure skating world??? Their little Yuuri knows and is comfortable with so many celebrities? Their little Yuuri IS a celebrity!!!!! This is more famous people than they’d ever thought they’d meet in one place!!!

But before the night is over, they’ve loosened up and gotten to know the skaters. Chris is probably missing his pants. Yuuri has a bottle or two of champagne in him (nevermind the fact that those two bottles probably cost more than any of his friends make in a month). And you know Phichit has told a very attentive crowd the full story of how Viktor and Yuuri met, in detail. Never mind the fact that Phichit wasn’t even at that banquet in the first place, and he himself had gotten the story, heavily embellished, from Chris.

ADHD & "out of sight, out of mind" relationships

Is it weird that it’s hard for me to maintain personal relationships if I don’t physically see them all the time? Like I love my parents and my sister, but I never really *miss* them. I only get homesick when I’m about to leave, but once I’ve adjusted to being at school I’m totally fine. I can go months w/o contacting HS friends and weeks w/o seeing my college friends or even my bf during the semester. I rarely if ever get the urge to reach out. I just don’t think about them, which sounds super callous, but I definitely do care? But it’ll be like 2 weeks since I’ve seen someone who lives a building away or a month since I’ve called my mom and they’ll text me like ‘I miss you!’ and I…don’t? I don’t feel compelled to seek out their company and sometimes I don’t even reply to messages because I don’t have the mental energy to hold an interaction with them. It’s like I pause all my friendships to come back to later, except real life isn’t Netflix and people won’t hold your place if you don’t actually put in the work. I can feel my high school friends drifting apart but I still don’t feel interested in their lives away until we’re back together in person and it feels just the same as always. I don’t realize it’s weird how little I talk to my parents  (who I love very, very much and have a great relationship w) until someone’s like “lol my mom calls at least every other day” and I realize that my mom’s expectations from me are “maybe a few emojis every month”. My boyfriend sometimes complains that he’s never been the one in the relationship to be nagging for a text back. If I’m at college, I don’t miss home, and if I’m at home, I don’t miss my friends from college. 

Is this an ADHD thing? I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I hate that I feel this way. I feel so shallow and self-centered because I struggle to maintain attachments whenever there’s physical distance. I saw this one random blogger make a personal post about this same exact thing, wondering if it was a facet of her ADHD, and now I’m wondering if it’s a facet of mine, too. It’s like I lack “emotional object permanence”, like if I can’t see the relationship it’s not right in front of me. I’ve only just been noticing this because I’m in college, but back in high school I rarely hung out with my friends outside of school and only sporadically had contact over breaks. I didn’t think that was weird but now I’m thinking it kind of is.

(I have Inattentive Type ADHD w/ impulsive tendencies)


Ugh, this posted instead of going to drafts. Tumblr, WTF?!?

Anyway, I was going to look up attachment styles for you because it sounds like you have both the typical ADHD out of sight out of mind thing like you say, but also it sounds like your attachment style is a bit out of whack. You can read up on it via the link from this post. There are ways to mitigate some of the challenges associated with an off-kilter attachment style, and counselling is a good way to work through that process.

I didn’t realize how misinformed I was about skincare until I started practicing a little witchcraft. I thought that apricot scrubs were good, oil was bad, and that cystic acne couldn’t be treated topically. Oh, was I wrong. About a year ago, I befriended a 30 year practicing witch who had about 14 years cosmetology experience at the time. Having just discovered Paganism myself, I constantly bugged her about both subjects. She taught me some basics and I’ve been using them ever since. They really work. And it’s a nice and easy introduction to spells if you’re looking to get into somethin’ spooky. 

First things first: Apricot scrubs are TERRIBLE. Any facial scrub that has granules you can see is going to put tiny cuts in your already irritated face and make your acne more susceptible to infection/irritation. She recommended using a mixture of coconut oil and baking soda to make a paste that will very very gently remove dead skin without causing redness. People with rosacea should avoid using any type of scrub, even though this one is very mild. Never exfoliate more than 2-3 times a week, and never ever do it two days in a row. When you’re done, make sure you put as much oil as you can in the trash can- rinsing it off in the sink will clog the drain over time. And remember- the thicker the paste, the more coarse the scrub will be. Scrub using gentle yet wide circular motions, timing yourself at about 60 seconds. 

Oil is not bad for your skin! Coconut oil has tiny molecules unlike other oils, so it can penetrate hair and skin better than other oils. Coconut oil is excellent at pulling your natural facial oils out of your pores without stripping moisture. After you use the scrub, use a warm, damp wash cloth to gently wipe away the oil and baking soda. You should always moisturize immediately after cleansing, but I’ve noticed that after using this cleanser my skin doesn’t ususally need it. Besides coconut oil, lavender oil, grapeseed oil, and sweet almond oil are also very good for acne prone skin. Tea tree oil can be diluted heavily and applied to spot treat, but do not use more than once a week in small quantities or it will make your skin itchy and red. Always always always moisturize before putting on makeup by the way!

As for the face masks! I have a face mask recipe that will reduce my pore size by like 80-90%. Seriously. If I used it once a week I’d have perfect skin, but I don’t, so even when my skin is at its worst, this mask still kicks ass. I don’t have exact measurements for everything (or anything really) so please be patient with yourself when making them. But that’s the beauty of this recipe- you can change it to fit your skin problems with a little research and a trip to the health food store. Side note: Do the mask right after you use the scrub. Otherwise it won’t work as well.

The base of the mask is this magical powder called kaolin clay. I buy it in bulk at the health food store and it’s cheap as hell. It’s just a mild clay that turns to putty then hardens in ten minutes. I probably use ¾ cup, maybe even a full cup for a mask. Just depends on how many liquids you want to include. Star out small and add as you go.

After putting a starter amount of clay into a small bowl, I set that aside and start on the liquids. I like to use tea instead of water. I make a teensy amount of hot water then pour it over green tea, rose petals, and calendula petals. Green tea is anti-inflammatory, rose balances pH, and calendula is great for skin. Try to buy organic so you’re not dousing yourself in pesticides. I set these aside to brew. The less water you use, the stronger the tincture, and the less time you need to wait. 

I only have a few essential oils, but if you do a little research, it is super easy to pick out some that are good for skin and are non-comodegenetic (won’t clog pores). I take my little bowl of clay and start adding a few drops of lavender oil, a few drops of grapeseed oil, a squirt of sweet almond, and two tiny drops of tea tree. Other options are ylang ylang (good for oily skin), chamomile (very soothing), and clary sage (for reverse aging and puffiness). I would say maybe 5 oils would be a good maximum, just because you need room for the tea. 

Add the tea by holding the flowers back with a spoon and pouring tiny little amounts into the clay and oil mixture, stirring frequently so that you don’t get it too thin. You want it the texture of Elmer’s glue. If a few petals get into the mask, that’s fine. Some people add loose green tea leaves to their masks straight up, so whatever’s clever. Then just smear the mask on, avoiding the eye area if you used tea tree oil, and leave it on for about 10 minutes. It will harden so if you want to drink anything you should use a straw, and the mask will flake a bit towards the end, so be aware of that. Once the ten minutes is up, just splash wet water on your face to turn it back to glue texture, then wash off with warm water. This may take a while. Then after you dry your face with a clean towel, check out your pores in the mirror! This is my favorite part because there are patches of my skin when I don’t have visible pores at all, and where I do, they are so much lighter and smaller. The essential oils must penetrate the blackheads or something, I have no idea, but it does what no Biore strips or Clean and Clear scrub have ever done before. 

Make sure you moisturize after ! I have really bad acne so I follow up with benzoyl peroxide (doctor’s orders) and a light drugstore moisturizer to keep my pores looking like this as long as possible. I recommend doing this mask once a week at least, but definitely no more that once every three days. And don’t pop pimples! Give these remedies some time and you will see a huge difference. 

One more thing: Rose water. I make my own, but it can be bought at $30 a bottle at Sephora. However, I don’t use mine that often because it’s non-organic, so unless you have the hookup on organic roses, you might want to steer clear. Basically all it is is rose tea. I get roses from my boyfriend frequently, so I hang them up to dry thoroughly and then collect the petals in a burlap bag. Once I have a grocery bag’s worth, I toss them in a pot to boil. There are lots of ways to do this online, but mine is very simple. Just bring petals to a soft boil, steep until it’s dark red, then let cool. I store mine in a massive mason jar in the refrigerator. I leave some petals in there to make it stronger, but you can strain them immediately if you like. Definitely strain them before using the water to make you life a little easier.

I use rose water as a toner between cleansing and moisturizing. It’s cool from refrigeration, which calms any puffiness, and it apparently balances pH. Another cool thing about it is it moistens your face right before you moisturize. Lotion doesn’t always add moisture to your skin, it often just retains what moisture you have. So if you moisturize damp skin, you’ll retain more moisture. Seems weird but it works.

The witchcraft comes in where you want it to. I like to put intention in the stirring; meaning I stir right if I want to embrace good vibes and positive outcomes, stir left if I have something negative on my mind that I want to banish. I think there is magic in the herbs and oils themselves so I don’t get too fancy or chant, but it is totally a thing for people to chant while making these kinds of elixirs. Tumblr is full of awesome little rituals! I just tend to keep it simple. 

So anyways this is basically everything I know about skincare, and it was all taught to me by a woman in her late thirties that looks like she’s 24. Kudos if you read this entire thing! Seacrest out.

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

This letter is for all of you who stim. 

You’re not “crazy” or “weird”. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you. 

Stimming is completely natural and normal - not only the kinds of stimming other people may consider aesthetic, such as glitter slime or paint mixing, but also hand-flapping, pacing, rocking, chewing etc. 

You’re lgbt+, on the autism spectrum and stim? You’re lovely. 

You’re lgbt+, have sensory processing disorder and stim? You’re lovely. 

You’re lgbt+, have anxiety and stim? You’re lovely. 

You’re lgbt+ and stim? You’re lovely! 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

PS: “Wait, what is stimming?” Stimming is self-stimulatory behavior -  repetitive behaviors with which people stimulate and calm themselves. By repeating one stimuli, they block out other stimuli and avoid over-stimulation. It’s most prevalent in people with the above mentioned conditions. 

BTS as things my friends have said

Namjoon: “Nothing happened. You didn’t see anything. I didn’t just drop my drink, and the lamp is not broken. Stop looking at me.”

Jungkook: “You should come to the gym with me some time! I go at 8 every morning… Why are you looking at me like that? What? Don’t most people?!”

Seokjin: “I’m making dinner, and no, I don’t need your help. Last time was a bit… Tell you what. How about you sit waaay over there and grate the cheese.”

Hoseok: “Those people just gave us a weird look but like?? What’s weird about skipping through six flags? The real question is why aren’t they skipping too?”

Taehyung: “You guys all know that I’m secretly a furry, right?”

Yoongi: “How about everyone else goes for a walk and leaves me alone to sleep on the couch.” *Is asleep in 0.2 seconds*

Jimin: “I’m not cute!! I’m SCARY! Fear me! … Can I have a cookie please?”


A/N Obviously this is just for fun. I’ve seen some of these floating around tumblr and I thought “my friends say all kinds of weird things” and decided to do one of my own (it took like 2 minutes but it was fun). <3

Okay so I normally wouldn't take to social media about this but I need help...

This really isn’t a joke. You guys might have noticed that I haven’t been doing requests much lately or barely even at all. But this is really an issue for me. I feel like I am going insane or something. I know that I am not actually going insane but there are so many things wrong with me and I have a full anxiety attack when I see a bug. I mean… I am not stable. I can’t sleep no matter how hard I try. Exams are on at my school right now. School in general is giving me so much work to do. I’m never hungry but like I never eat. I over work myself too much. I have to do things a certain way like OCD. I see things moving in the corner of my eye and it is just a shoe or something. I am so paranoid about bugs anywhere. I scratch my arms but sometimes I wake up with marks starting to scab on my legs. I get depressed easily and to be honest I have been thinking about suicide a lot. I know that not many of you guys are going to pay attention to me. My name is Lizzie and I am scared. I am worried that someone is judging me if there is something weird by the way I walk. I can’t act like I normally can anymore. I am not super close with my family and I would prefer to not talk about this kind of stuff to them because they would only just take away the things that make me happy. Just to say this I have ADHD. I need help. Please. I have never done this in my two years on tumblr. I need people to talk to. I should go to bed soon it is 11:11 pm. I have to wake up at 5 am to get ready for school. Honestly anyone please message me. Anon messages or real messages. Just please distract me. I am so paranoid. Keep an eye on me and check in and see how I am doing. That’s all I need is someone to do that. I’m scared. If you read this then thank you. I know many of you won’t message me but I need it. I am only tagging this post with the tags that I know will get seen for someone to help.

Plague of Wilsons

they showed up and all started agreeing with each other

they all went into a science frenzy

they all started killing chess

they all started dissing spiders

they all started praising each other’s stupid ideas

i was honestly expecting the wilsons to fall apart and start harassing each other and dying but they pulled together and made a pretty developed base by day 9 with no one dead and lots of love and support and acceptance floating around (IT WAS KIND OF WEIRD)

with @flowerchildgamer, @conquerwithmind, @tantum-tenebris, @ecruteakghostmother, someone whose tumblr i really should know but dont off the top of my head pls let me know what to tag you as it was @askanisystem

and @pchillgal hosting! :)

You know that thing going around tumblr where humans are the weird ones in all of space and maybe aliens would think we were resilient and incredible or adorable on days when I have nothing to be proud of I like to read those posts and stories and pretend that in the vast cosmos amidst untold wonders humanity is admired for being creative and kind and resilient and good and it makes me feel good about being human like it’s okay if I didn’t do that good today because I’m still human and so I’m inherently amazing idk it makes me really happy

anonymous asked:

The best thing about Elsewhere U is that there is definitely a significant portion of the university that is completely ignorant to everything that's going on and chalk it up to a massive coincidence. They follow all the advice and what not but they think that it's just some strange school traditions...

Yeah there’s at least a third of the population that does everything by the rules bc it’s just kinda What You Do, isn’t it neat to have school traditions. And they study a major that by chance doesn’t attract too much attention, like maybe PoliSci, which has no real relevance to the Gentry one way or another. They know finals week people can get kind of weird, but hey there’s always jokes about that on Tumblr, this is what they expected. And their experience is totally, entirely mundane - the graduate 100% untouched by anything paranormal, with a good degree from a prestigious university, and don’t really understand any of the quiet talk at the class reunions.

incandescent-creativity  asked:

So I have a novel that I've polished quite a bit, and it's been seen by an author couple who really know what they're doing, and they said to make my dialogue unique to each character. This book does have quite a few main characters in it, so I'm struggling to come up with ways to jazz up their dialogue while keeping it unique to the characters. Any advice?

Hi! I’d be happy to help.

Firstly, let your characters’ dialogue reflect their personalities. If one character is very cynical and another is optimistic 24/7, they’re not going to speak the same way or refer to things the same way; if one character graduated from college cum laude and another barely made it through the tenth grade, they won’t necessarily use the same words, or the same grammatical structure in their sentences. If your character teaches English, they’ll probably be accurate in use of verb tenses and negative agreement (either-or, neither-nor, “no one did anything” as opposed to “no one did nothing”). Let your characters’ worldviews and characteristics shine through in their speech.

I’ll try to list a couple of ideas for you:
- maybe one character cusses more than others
- maybe one character has a tendency to repeat himself
- maybe one character constantly jokes around
- maybe one character speaks very properly
- maybe one character loses their g’s at the end of -ing words (e.g. “fuckin” instead of “fucking”, “workin” instead of “working”)
- maybe one character is awkward when speaking and finds it difficult to phrase things correctly, so their speech often doesn’t make sense
- maybe your character repeats a certain phrase

(Don’t use any of the above just to give your characters some differences in dialogue – if you feel one or more fits your character, then by all means use it, but don’t put them in just to add pizzazz. That won’t help.)

Mainly what I have to recommend is listening to people talk – not on TV or on the radio, but in real life. Sit in the park or the airport and just wait for people conversing to walk/stand/sit within earshot. You’ll notice that some people repeat certain phrases as an affirmative (I, for example, say “yuh” at least five times a minute and I kind of hate myself for it), some drop their g’s (“that girl’s frickin weird”), some speak properly/politely by nature. Listening is really the only way to improve your dialogue, just like reading/writing is the only way to develop your style. Writing is a game of observation and practice.

I hope this helps! If you need anything else, please feel free to ask! - @authors-haven

For my non-BJD pals who may be confused, try to imagine the persecution complex and weird moral superiority delusion of the tumblr shoplifters community blended with the artist-scorning entitled indignation of the people who get really angry about artists charging money for commissions, and that pretty much sums up the ‘pro-recast’ people. You know, if you want some kind of idea what kinda people they are.
