up at 8 in the morning

Good Morning! If I’m not up by 8:30 am, Tiger growls at my door and I let him in and he sleeps on my bed with me until I get up. But I think he only sleeps with me because he knows there’s a chance I’ll open my door to the balcony for him because he LOVES the balcony.

Lol glamours can work wonders when you’re depressed. I’ve been doing glamour magic through oils and like I’ve been going through a depressive slump for the past couple of days and my friend invited me out so I can feel better but my hair looks busted and my scalp is kind of sweaty and I feel gross but I put this early spring bloom oil in my scalp underarms and thighs and like I got compliments from her and other people that I look great which was hilarious cause I’m a slob who hadn’t left my bed until 11AM this morning though I woke up at 8 and my hair is a mess but at least it’s cool to know that magic was working to make me appear good and approachable cause I’m like dying inside and a mess rn.

eriksartworld  asked:

I don't know why I thought this was funny, but I just imagined like Mark's closet being separated by things he'd wear, wilford would wear, and Dark would wear. *lays head down* Its like 8 in the morn forgive me for thinking this was funny ; o;

Now all I can imagine what if Mark got them mixed up and just becomes all three

Brunch (Jumin x MC)

Mafia!AU: You join Jumin for brunch with his father.

Word Count: 1800

I haven’t got much to say other than I hope you enjoy and have a delightful day!

This is a branching storyline and I highly recommend you read previous prompts in order to understand:

———————————————————————————————————-

The morning had gone by in seconds practically, Jumin’s voice having been the thing to wake you up.

“Come on, Driver Kim called to say they’re on their way to take us to my father. I’d hate to keep him waiting.”

The day sank into your head once again as your eyes fluttered open, a sudden scramble as you rushed to dress nicely.

You nearly tripped on your way towards the bathroom, thankfully being caught by Jumin before you crashed to the floor.

“Steady love, he just called. You have time.” He chuckled, helping you to your feet.

“How long do you think it’ll be until he’s here?” You asked, ruffling his hair playfully as you calmed.

“I’d say a half hour or less. You look fine as you are, though so it shouldn’t be much trouble.”

You began to brush through your tangled curling waves of hair, nearly snorting at his remark.

“I look fine?”

“Of course.” He replied. “I think you look lovely no matter what after all.”

Pink began to dust your cheeks as you got ready, finding that the day began much softer than those before.

It was odd seeing how it could so easily turn so sour.

Would it?

You decided not to continue with those thoughts, finding a sort of sinking feeling beginning to churn in your stomach.

“Do you think I look suitable?” He asked. “My father is very sensitive to these sort of things when it comes to my attire.”

He was wearing a simple polyester suit with a few messy strands of hair wandering about his face.

You pulled them behind his ears, nodding as you pressed a small kiss to his nose.

“You look like you could be on the red carpet.”

He grinned softly, dipping his head lightly.

“Thank you, darling, as do you.”

It hadn’t been long afterward that a small knocking began to bang against the hollow front door.

“That must be Driver Kim,” Jumin took your hand, running a gentle hand over your knuckles. “are you ready?”

You nodded, nearly forgetting in the peaceful moments why you were leaving. 

Brunch.

With Mr. Han.

You hung at the staircase as you both began to make your way to the front door. 

Everything could fall apart in moments.

It had seemed impossible just a few days ago.

But now it was as though you were about to step upon a razor-thin tightrope.

Jumin tipped his head curiously as the edge of your feet hovered over the first stairstep.

“Darling…?” 

“What if…what if it all goes wrong?” You asked, your body feeling colder than ice.

He faltered, folding his lips. 

“There’s no reason for that to be happening. Everything has gone smoothly as of now. Even if something goes wrong, we’ll be able to get back on track. I can assure you.” 

“I-I’m sorry.” You laughed timidly, stepping out a foot as you walked down.

And you peered up, finding him still gently grinning as he lead you down.

And walking that tightrope didn’t seem quite so terrifying anymore.

Driver Kim waited patiently outside, giving a small wave as he brought you to the vehicle. 

“Good morning you two!” He greeted, beaming. “Mr. Han is very excited to see you! I hear you two have been quite the business pair?” 

You noticed the hint of bother that rustled in his gaze as he glanced in your direction.

Why?

“Oh yes, MC is already having a rather large influence. If they keep up the pace my father may make them the heir instead.” He chuckled, leaning back into the seat. 

“Well you are a journalist aren’t you?” Kim asked, the car sputtering to live as it rounded about to the street. 

“Yes, I am.” 

“Those tend to be a very clever bunch in my opinion. Kind of makes sense doesn’t it?” 

“I suppose…” 

Silence. 

It began to plague you all, a peculiar tension entangling you, as the only sound being that of the running engine.

You usually liked silence.

But not now.

The ride felt endless.

Occasionally Jumin would attempt to point out small things here and there in an attempt to offer some content.

“You know there’s a beautiful set of meadows out here, I’ll have to show you sometime.”

“You know Luciel used to always say this was a nice area for camping. I wouldn’t know, though. I’ve never been camping actually.” 

There’d usually be a small response, but as if someone clamped your mouths shut forcefully, there wasn’t much.

It had felt like hours until the ride ended, the pleasant, quiet home Jumin had on the edge of town, now replaced by a bustling lively city.

Where towering even above that, was Mr. Han’s building. 

You both stepped out, Jumin giving a tip of his hat as Driver Kim said goodbye. 

“Have a good morning, both of you. And, stay safe.” 

His words had trailed sadly. 

You couldn’t even respond, your brow furrowing as he became hidden amongst the countless others. 

“Do you think he knows…?” 

“Probably not. But he is always weary when it comes to private meetings like these. He tries to be a fatherly figure of sorts considering the one I have may not be the best.” 

“That’s nice of him…” 

Jumin nodded promptly, showing you to the elevators.

People were about every corner just about.

So nothing would happen.

Or, nothing should happen.

“My father is on the top floor. Like many, he enjoys the view.” 

He held you close as people poured in, the majority of them eventually slipping out as the elevator climbed higher and higher. 

Until it was just the two of you, staring towards the hall leading to Mr. Han.

The secretary gave a bright smile, waving to your fiance.

“Hello, Jumin! Your father is waiting for you right in his office. There’s coffee and tea in there too. He wanted to see what the newest member of the family would want before getting food.”

“Thank you.” 

Mr. Han’s officer was enormous, decorations lining the walls and opulent furniture accompanying the floor.

Opposite of you, where Mr. Han’s desk lay was a window, the sun shining so brightly it reached you.

Just barely. 

Jumin’s father stared out beyond the glass, a long wistful sigh escaping him before he noticed you both.

“Jumin! MC!” 

He beamed from ear to ear, rushing to you, gripping you both in a tight, tender hug.

“Come, sit sit!” 

He gestured to the ornate seats just before his desk, steaming cups of tea and coffee sitting in front of it.

“I’ve been very excited to hear of all the plans you’ve been thinking of MC. I was afraid you’d be reluctant to the family, or even disdainful!” He narrowed his eyes.

 “That would’ve been a shame.” 

A chill ran down your spine.

“But you seem to be fitting in wonderfully! A prodigy even if I say so!” 

“O-Oh thank you…” You said, taking the coffee in your hands and raising it to take a small sip.

“So what were these plans exactly? I’d like to hear it from the designer themselves.”

Your heart stopped, unable to meet his stare as you sputtered up bits and pieces of what you remembered. 

“W-Well I just thought, t-that since you were worried about lowering prices that you could many multiple places to get it. I-It could be organized by roles beneath you and they could arrange more, so that if law enforcement found them the source wouldn’t lead t-to you. T-That way the prices c-could be lowered without much worry.” 

You shifted back, tapping your feet awkwardly against the wooden floor as no one spoke.

Why was it so quiet?

As much as you wanted to know, you didn’t dare look up.

“Genius!” Mr. Han cheered, a small applause from him following. “Jumin I think we just about found the perfect match for you!” 

“I would say so as well.” 

And even with Jumin’s tense demeanor, you noticed the adoration laced with his words.

“T-Thank you.” 

“I’ll begin the plans immediately, this will be just swell!” He let out a small gasp. “You know what I should also star planning? To bring in brunch!” 

“T-That’s fine really-” 

“Nonsense, this a celebration.” 

His tone darkened as it ended, becoming more of a command than an offer. 

“Now what sort of food do you like dear?” 


The food had been marvelous as always, the coffee as well leaving a warmth trickling down your throat. 

Peculiar small talk had taken place throughout, as if one was waiting for the other to make a move.

To play their card. 

Yet you still kept your sight glued to the ground, or aimlessly about the room.

Something inside of you just told you not to.

“Now, that was good wasn’t it? I’m sure you don’t regret eating now right?”

“It was very nice, thank you.” 

“Anything for our newest genius.”,

“Yes, well we best be on our way father. I have to inform the others of our most recent situation.” 

Yoosung.

Mr. Han thought he was dead.

Didn’t he?

You shot up, taking the arm Jumin outstretched towards you invitingly. 

You both practically rushed to the door, an odd desperation like there was a bomb ticking between the very walls. 

A low grunt emanated from Mr. Han as he stood from his seat.

“Yes, speaking of the current situation, you did handle it didn’t you?” 

His voice reminded you of venom, daggers of his gaze piercing you.

You had to look up now.

First, you looked to Jumin, the slightest hint of hesitance dashing his expression before he glanced to you, and softened. 

“Yes, I’ve handled it.” 

Then you finally met Mr. Han’s face.

And you were horrified at what you found.

It had contorted to a steely glower, a doubtful brow raising as he nodded.

“Well, I’m glad to hear that.”

And in that moment, Mr. Han dealt his card.

“After all, we wouldn’t want any ‘incidents’ like this occurring now would we?”

And Jumin dealt his, holding onto you as though the rest of the world fought to drag you away.

“No, we wouldn’t.” 

Workout Log 2-23-17

So, neither by boyfriend nor I set an alarm clock this morning. LOL. Good thing I’m incapable of sleeping the second light touches my face, so the sun got me up only half an hour late. I guess the good news is I slept through most of the night? I was up for about an hour around 3AM, but hey as long as I end with 8 hours, right?

I don’t have any clever segues into my favorite playlist songs for my workout, so bam. Nine Inch Nail’s “Ruiner.”

Today was an upper body day since it kept getting put off. The reason I do so many upper body workouts is because my legs seem to be naturally gifted and my arms have the most skin issues. Don’t worry, though! My little leg day challenge is going to be tomorrow and I’m planning (hoping) to do another video post for it.

Exercises today were: With dumbbells (10-15 lbs depending on the difficulty for me); bicep curls, hammer curls, overhead triceps extension, seated overhead press, front raises, side raises. As I’ve mentioned, I go light on the dumbbells because I’m still trying to perfect form. Machines (30-50 lbs depending on the difficulty for me); chest press, overhead press, fly/rear delt, lat pulldown, low row, tricep press. Also, can’t forget to mention a good 20 minutes on the treadmill to keep that blood flowing!

Week two of Zoloft!

Last night I finally got a full nights sleep, for the first time since, geez, even before the Zoloft I think?

Woke up edgy and buzzed up again, and generally I’m still pretty shaky and anxious, but the panic has settled right down which is so good.

Also my chest pains have been minimal since starting the meds.

Generally, I feel like my symptoms are finally starting to settle a bit? I don’t want to jinx myself, and it really depends on the day and how I’m feeling.

Mornings tend to be best, by about 4pm I’m starting to get anxious and tired at work but I can push through it.

This is good, not best or even stable yet but an improvement!

Ok but I’ve been binge watching the Narnia movies again, after not having seen them for a long ass time, and now, being a little older and (hopefully) a little more mature than I was when I first saw them, I always feel physically sick when I see the Pevensies being children after The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe because they just aren’t anymore and I can’t even begin to imagine what it must be like, to grow up as kings and queens, respected and important, and full of duty, only to go back to being 8 years old (in Lucy’s case).

They didn’t remember England, or the wardrobe, or their old lives, they were Narnians and they were pushed back, not only into a world that was bound to make them miserable, but also into bodies that couldn’t reflect what they’d been through.

Just imagine Peter, waking up in the morning, not remembering that he isn’t the Magnificent anymore, imagine him subconsciously reaching for something to trim his beard, only to remember that it isn’t there anymore, to expect old battle wounds to hurt until he realises that they can’t because he doesn’t have them.

Or Edmund, who left England a stubborn selfish little boy who only wanted his mummy back, and came back the Just, the redeemed traitor, the diplomat, the man, having to resort to being ten years old and probably not even allowed to peek at a newspaper because he’s just a child after all. He plays chess, incredibly well, he doesn’t mock his siblings anymore and all the friends he knew when he was still a boy are either irritated at his behaviour or too childish, too selfish for somebody who knows very well just what selfishness can do, who has a part of the White Witch in him, always.

Susan forgets, we all know that. She must’ve lain awake at night, remembering just what it felt like to cover pain and viciousness and gore with a smile and a blush, remembering being the Gentle, but never in war. She must’ve cried for all the lost years, for all that she learnt and that she can never forget, for all that she has accomplished, that will bring her nothing in this world that doesn’t feel like hers. So she sits down in front of a mirror, talks herself out of believing, telling herself that it wasn’t real, that it was just a dream, that this Narnia her siblings talk about is nothing but a game.
The truth is too terrifying, to devastating to face.

Lucy, little Lucy, who grew up under Mr Tumnus’ smiles and Aslan’s approving gaze, who was loved by all, who did learn how to rule, how to negotiate but who never forgot just what it means to be a queen of Narnia, this girl who matured into a woman, who had a woman’s mind and body and a queen’s grace, she who they called the Valiant, the lion’s daughter, she shrank into herself, into a child, younger than even her siblings. She remembers, clearest of them all, she is the only one who still knows Mr Tumnus’ face, still knows Aslan, but she is just a girl, a pretty little thing who will never be the queen she was, who will never be the woman she was because queenship forms a person in ways no schools can.

They must’ve been devastated when they tumbled to the floor, short and small, and there’s a war they have no control over and Lucy is small, Edmund is skinny, so skinny and Peter and Susan have lost their glow and they’ve changed, they’ve changed so much. (The first time, somebody calls them by just their names, they feel invalidated and small. And offended. They’re kings and queens, they’ve earned their titles and now they have to sit in a dim room filled with children and listen to teachers, have to allow themselves to be insignificant and nothing more than what they were when Lucy first stepped into Narnia - frightened children in the middle of a war they wish was never there in the first place)

Day Fifty-Eight

-I asked a woman how she was doing. “They call this the world’s best kitty litter,” she replied, “And it is.” She then followed up with a sales pitch, trying to convince me to buy it next time I was in the market, despite her seemingly not having any connections to the company and me not owning a cat.

-A woman came through my lane, acting strange and wearing sunglasses at 8:15 on a very overcast morning, making me certain that she made an extra stop after dropping her kids off at school.

-I was shouted at for saying two words to a woman. All that I had managed to get out was “how are”, but she was far too efficient a businesswoman to bother with such trivial things as small talk or manners. 

-I handed an elderly man his receipt, only to find that this man’s hands painted a mystifying landscape. The deep wrinkles running along his arm, deep valleys and rolling hills. The unnaturally abundant and long white hairs, snow-dusted trees blowing in a light breeze. The unidentifiable greenish blotch, the toxic dumping zone of the bayside nuclear research laboratory.

-Subtitled kung fu movies have been playing quietly in the corner of the break room for days, despite a lack of any interested audience to be found at any point. It is fascinating to find the diverse interests the store’s poltergeist seems to hold.

-An unwrapped Hershey’s kiss was left on a table, carefully placed behind a dog decoration. This creativity is frankly inspiring and I would like to shake the hand of the comedic genius who did this.

-I rang up the man who denied me a job at Best Buy a month before I was employed here. Looking at how we have both turned out since then, I am grateful things played out as they did. I now have at least six people who read stories from my days at work. His beard has somehow become more creepy than it had been during my interview. I can safely say that I have come out the winner here.

-As a young girl was pushed around the girls section by her mother, she pointed to each item, asking if it was boys or not. This continued for an entire circuit of the section until the mother, seemingly having taken the hint, pushed her towards the boys clothes, much to her delight. It brightened my day to see the mother handle this with such grace and I hope the girl finds the clothes she was looking for.

i know that waking up in the morning can be such a chore ;; it’s always so tempting to sleep til noon and constantly press “snooze.” however, mornings are a nice and quiet bit of the day to enjoy!! here are a few tips to maximize your mornings.

benefits:

  • there’s so much more time to be productive
  • if you finish up your work in the morning, you can relax in the evening
  • early mornings are really peaceful and calm
  • you can catch a glimpse of the sunrise
  • you feel happier and healthier

go to sleep earlier

getting adequate sleep will help you wake up early for the next day! i know, it seems like a better idea to stay up really late to finish that one last assignment. but!! i’d recommend that you sleep earlier and wake up earlier to finish it in the morning. you’ll feel less tired and stressed!

wake up earlier than you normally do

idk about you, but if i wake up after 8 or 9 am, i just feel so so sluggish and feel like i lost some precious hours of the morning. i personally like waking up around 6 to 6:30, but other people like waking up around 7.

open up your blinds / curtains

let all the natural light fill your room!! it makes your room brighter and i swear, almost everything looks prettier with natural light. also, natural light is fantastic for taking those studyspo pictures :-))))

drink a glass of water

your body hasn’t had any water for the past 8 or so hours that you’ve been asleep!! drinking a large glass of water after you wake up will fire up your metabolism, rehydrate your brain, help your body flush out toxins, and help you feel refreshed as well.

wash your face with cold water

idk about you but i literally feel half-asleep on my feet when i wake up and i just want to crawl back into my bed and never see the morning light again. washing my face with cold water really wakes me up and makes me feel super refreshed and ready to tackle the day! i also like to brush my teeth too bc morning breath is gross ;;

eat breakfast

eating a healthy breakfast gives you energy to use for the day, improves your memory and mood, improves concentration and productivity, and is good for your overall health bc it reduces risk of type 2 diabetes + obesity (reduces chances of excessive, unhealthy snacking).

lately, i’ve been eating a small bowl of oatmeal with honey, peanut butter, and a little bit of fruit on the side. it’s so so good omg :’) i also make myself a cup of tea to give me a little “kick” in the morning.

turn on some music

idk why but turning on some nice music in the morning instantly sets a nice sort of atmosphere? i like playing studio ghibli music bc it’s calming and happy!

plan out your day

figure out what you’re going to do with all of the time that you have now! i like jotting down my tasks in my bullet journal, but you can just write up a to-do list, use an app, a planner, or your own bullet journal.

get to work!

take advantage of the time you have now to get started on your assignments + projects + studying!

you can also check out my morning routine video to see how i usually spend my mornings!

hope this helped and good luck! if you’d like to request a post, go here and if you’d like to see more helpful posts, go here!! thanks :)

We’ve already deduced the location and the time of this: BBC building, at around 8:35 in the morning.

But where does this put us timeline wise?

Well, according to the Regents Street Twitter, those flags are not there any more. This was taken on the 19th of Feb:

So now we have evidence that not only are these original images, but they’re not current, which points towards what I originally thought - setlock took these photos in advance. The Union flags were up in June or July during 2016 to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. 

Since it’s kind of hard to see, here’s another shot taken from the Regents street twitter on the 29th of January (lol):

The flags aren’t there. I don’t know how anyone can possibly believe that these Twitters aren’t legit, because this points to meticulous planning at least one year in advance

So, where else do we see those flags? Quite notably during TLD:

We’ve had Jim reference T6T:

Followed by this, no less:

Y’know, hinting that T6T is a lie- and then we have Sherlock referencing the union flags possibly hinting towards towards TLD but I suspect it’s hinting towards the beginning of ‘s4′ content for the Twitters. Which means we’re getting somewhere. Which means there’s a story, here.

It’s not a trick, it’s a plan.
