visions of my future

Okay I have this huge vision for my future in which I’m successful in my business and I have my masters in ECE and I build my own nature preschool with an open log cabin here on the west coast and I work with all of these incredible children and I’m so excited!!!! I’m struggling so hard and working so hard right now but I know that I’ll get there and I can hardly wait!!

I always have visions of my future husband slowly walking around our living room cradling our child, while listening to some reggae or soul and I’m peacefully going back to sleep, feeling vulnerable but reassured that I’m safe, because we’re a team and I know he’s got us.

dear america,

i’ve been sitting on my couch all day, wrapped up in a blanket, eating chips ahoy and retweeting every upsetting tweet on my timeline, in the worst funk i’ve ever felt. just shock. disappointment. doubt. my anxiety, my depression-everything in my mind spiraling and bringing every bad vision of the future to the front of my mind, but then i realized something- this is what he wants. this is exactly what donald j fucking trump wants.
he wants us like this. he wants the LGBTQ+ community to lose hope and dull their colors. he wants women to stop speaking out and believe that nothing will ever change for us. he wants every person of color to feel anxious and scared. he wants us to believe that we’re done. he wants us to believe that this is it. he wants us to believe that all this progress over the years was for nothing.
and if you give up, that means he wins.
have hope. have fire. if you can’t find a reason, have the revolution running inside your veins out of spite. if you continue to be loud and proud about who you are, weather it be as a woman, as a person of color, as someone who is disabled, as someone a part of the LGBTQ+ community, that means his mission has failed. he wants us to feel so small that we want to hide underground, but fuck no, we’re going to rise right out of this.
if there’s anything i’ve learned about my peers as a teenager in america, whether i like them or not, is that the modern youth of this country right now are phoenixes. rising out of the ash of the country we were born in, glowing with new ideas and morality. what’s one more flame to set and crumble for us to come out of the other side, a powerful new being?
if you think of this as anything, take it as motivation. motivation to do everything he’s against. have a voice. fight for your rights, and other people’s rights, take none of his shit. be there for your friends who are worried. we stand for love and equality for all, and there will never be anything more powerful than that. so love one another. celebrate your differences. have each other’s backs. never lose the lightning in your mind and thunder in your words.
because there is nothing more inspiring and beautiful than living in a country with a leader who wants to tear you down, as you keep growing and rising above with your fist high and a fucking smile on your face.
the future belongs to us. we may hit a few hurdles along the way, just like now- but we. will. win.
he doesn’t get the last word. we do.
with love,

A beautiful Western-style Ignoct by the very talented @he1chousart. She is the first artist I’ve ever commissioned and I am SO SO happy with this piece! ❤️ (she’ll be doing a sexy Ardyn for me in the near future, so stay tuned 😏). She brought my vision for this to life! Look at Ignis in his vests 😆 (I’m a sucker for well dressed men).

I was watching Future Vision to help make my point and there’s so many good scenes but I love that scene at the beginning where Garnet protects Steven from a coffee spill and it’s like

Lars: are you okay that coffee was really hot?

Garnet: I drink coffee for breakfast! *flexes to dry herself off*

It was so funny and cute and I miss this garnet

there’s still time....

Sapphire: “my future vision foresaw you desiring more humans for the zoo…” 

Blue Diamond: “its true, the window of preserving Earth’s specimens is closing..” 

Yellow Diamond: “is that what you want? Sapphire, has the cluster emerged yet?” 

Sapphire: “no it has not.” 

Yellow Diamond:“then there’s still time.” 


I have this fear, a fear of the unknown, a fear that my plans for tomorrow will all be for nothing, a fear that the cloud that hovers over my head so weightlessly, will one day fall and consume me. A fear that it will blur my future, my vision, my passion towards life and turn into this weightless monster. A monster that frightens others, but weeps inside. A monster that is covered by a shell of broken opportunities and endless insecurities. I fear I will be trapped in this cocoon and I will never flourish. I fear that I will wither into the abyss and all I will be remembered as is a monster that never grew out of her shell, a monster that carried darkness in her eyes, a coward monster that never let her fears go.

Would Konoha be of any interest without Sasuke (and Itachi) living there?~

(@eeliiii I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me on this haha)

a vision for my future: me, lin-manuel miranda and trevor noah seated beside a fireplace, drinking hot cider and wearing footie pajamas. i have no stress and no worries. there is snow outside and i have fully processed my traumas and the grief that goes along with them. me, lin-manuel and trevor play super smash bros melee and fall asleep by 11 pm

I woke up feeling kind of depressed so I took a bath and got stoned and had stunning visions of my future. I called myself back into the present moment and realized that this melancholy winter and these emotions I am feeling are leading me to some pretty amazing and humbling realizations about myself, my future, and the world. I’m proud to be witnessing my own spiritual growth.

He was pleasantly burning hot to the touch as his arms wrapped around me. His lips lingering against my forehead as my eyes closed in happiness. His voice was something out of movie screens but rolled like shifting boulders. Visions of a million futures swam through my mind as he spoke a good morning message. A smile pulling at the edges of my lips, where had he been my whole life?
