“You’re a monster.”

Took forever to answer and think about. Hope it is okay. I live for iwtb era angst. Tagging @today-in-fic .

I did not remember when it happened. It had been so long. I thought we were getting better. I honestly allowed myself to believe that. We were better. After our trip to St. Martin, there was a little light come back into our lives.

I told him I was going to be late from the hospital that night. I left him a voicemail. I texted him twice, even though I knew he doesn’t use his phone like that. I debated emailing him as well, just to cover my basis, short using carrier pigeons or a messenger. Who am I kidding? He would probably shoot the messenger on sight in lieu of the old age adage of “Trust no one.”

Shit. I barely wondered if he trusted me anymore.

I’ve been down this road before. You remember me telling you about Diana Fowley?

I know it’s been years ago but the hurt is still there. I never want to feel like that again. It was beginning to feel like that again before the FBI came knocking on our door, asking for his help in exchange for his freedom.

His freedom.

It’s been a month and what has that gotten me? Nothing. I feel like he keeps himself locked back up in that corner office even more now. Hell, the beard is coming back. I’m sick of the fucking beard.

I thought things would be different. We could build an actual life together. Both of our names on the house and on the car. I know I haven’t talked about marriage, but maybe he would ask the question again and I would say yes. I will say yes. I’m tired of being life partners. I want to get married. File a joint tax return. Get a golden lab and he can build that white picket fence. Actually being normal and happy.

But no. I haven’t felt this alone in a long time.

6 things i stopped buying: minimalism journey (+ reduce waste)

1. Makeup Remover Wipes: instead, use a washcloth (preferably black) and apply coconut oil or almond oil to the cloth (or face), then use the cloth to wipe your entire makeup off until satisfied. *(continue with face wash routine or face mask)

2. Plastic Toothbrushes:  instead, buy a pack of bamboo toothbrushes on amazon or a general store. use these brushes as you would any other brush and thoroughly brush to improve oral health.

benefits: organic // reusable // decomposable // cleanses teeth effectively // eco-friendly // BPA free bristles

3. Multi-Step Facial Cleansers & Name Brand Body Washes: instead, use African Black soap for both your body and face with your preferred method of washing (electronic brush, hands, or wash cloth). for more simple face washes, consider using vegan and/or organic facial washes that work for your skin type.

Reasons why shoes are important to city witches

- you cant really be barefoot in a city
- shoes connect us to roads and the earth
- roads/sidewalks are super important to cities
- fashion is very magical in cities

Shoe Blessing Spell (best done when shoes are new)
- Find a protective oil you like (I used 3 drops clove oil in one tablespoon carrier oil.)
- Use a qtip to apply the oil in the shape of a protective symbol to the heel or sole of your shoe. (I used a pentagram.)
- If you are able to dance, go dancing in your shoes!
- If you are not able to dance, go to a celebration of your choice. Brag about your shoes.

@staff here’s an idea for your next update. Remove the inbox entirely. When we want to send a message to someone we email you a request and you send us a carrier pigeon. We attach our message to the pigeon and it flies back to you. You type our message out and email it to its recipient. Only to their junk email, never the primary email. When they want to reply they request a pigeon and the process is repeated. This seems like the next logical step in your update schedule.

Simple Protection Oil

This is just the recipe I used and created for my protection oil that has proved to be very effective

1. Cinnamon sticks

2. Bay Leaves

3. Basil

4. Black Pepper

5. Coconut Oil

6. Clove essential oil or whole cloves

I use Coconut oil as a carrier oil for this recipe because of the hard shell of a coconut and to me that conveys protection but you can use any carrier oil you like. Usually, I use grape seed for many of my other recipes. 

A Spell for Fitness Motivation

If you’re like me, you start working out and after a month – or when you go on vacation, or get super busy – you lose your motivation. You stop working out. And then, in about three to four months, you start the cycle all over and it’s like you’ve never worked out a day in your life. Frustrating, right?

Well, luckily, if you’re still like me, you do ~witchy things~, there are some things you can do to help keep that motivation going. Oh yeah, magic is awesome. Now that I’ve said that, let me clarify: this spell isn’t going to “work like magic”. You’re not suddenly going to become a super fit gym and/or yoga rat. You’ll still have to work for it. But, with this spell, your desire to quit will be replaced with invigoration! 

(There’s also the added bonus of this being a very practical fitness mat cleaner… two birds, one stone.)

You’ll Need:

  • Rain water
  • Sandalwood Essential Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Spray bottle

Begin with rain water. Ensure that is filtered. It doesn’t need to be drinking quality, but as this is a cleaner, it certainly shouldn’t be dirty either. Add one to two small spoonfuls of coconut oil. Pop in the microwave for 30 seconds, stirring halfway through. Then add 0.5mL (about 12 drops) of sandalwood essential oil. Stir clockwise. As always, remind yourself of your intent. Performing this spell post-workout would be great since you’ll be in the workout mindset already. 

Once complete, pour mixture into a spray bottle.

^ That’s mine. I would actually recommend a glass spray bottle, but plastic works too! Glass will just help it stay fresh longer (and its better for the environment). 

Then, spray the shit out of your fitness mat. And by that, I mean give it a few generous little squirts. Then, take a damp towel and lightly scrub your mat. Let it dry (and this is important because coconut oil is slippery, so if you don’t get some of it rubbed in with the cloth, you could hurt yourself by slipping). 

While it’s drying, you might choose to take a seated meditation pose on the mat. Or, if you’re in a rush, no worries. Just continue on with your day and come to your mat tomorrow! The important thing is to return to the mat, even for a couple of minutes, within the next 12 to 24 hours from its cleaning. This will solidify the spell. 

Once the spell is complete, relax. Enjoy!

Associates, Substitutions, and Tips: here, rain water is used as the primary carrier for the ingredients. It’s not doing a lot of magic on its own but plays a supporting role for the other ingredients. As such, it can be subbed for any other sort of water. The coconut oil serves as an antibacterial to clean the mat and has the associations of strength or willpower. You can sub this for another nut oil (such as sunflower or grapeseed) or for witch hazel oil. I would not recommend using olive, vegetable, or canola oil. Sandalwood is an invigorating and protective oil, but it can be substituted with any essential oil that makes you feel strong and motivated. Only use this spell when your mat is in need of cleaning.

When you have no cell service (multiple bars of service but nothing works) at a crowded event, turn off LTE in cellular settings. Phone will revert to a slower, but less crowded, 3G signal.

Carriers use multiple completely different frequencies for different generations of cellular technology. Since the vast majority of people have phones that support LTE (the fastest available now) this network will get clogged first, but the legacy network on different spectrum is indifferent to congestion on the LTE network.

“Before creation itself, there were six singularities. Then the universe exploded into existence, and the remnants of these systems were forged into concentrated ingots. Infinity Stones.

These stones, it seems, can only be brandished by beings of extraordinary strength. These carriers can use the stone to mow down entire civilizations like wheat in a field. Once, for a moment, a group was able to share the energy amongst themselves, but even they were quickly destroyed by it.”
