wanna-jean

okay but imagine all the amis carrying around little packs of gold star stickers to give to people when they make an accomplishment! not the big accomplishments.the little everyday ones that should be celebrated.   

Cosette and Jehan probably started it all but it slowly spread to everyone until it became amis tradition

Bossuet went a day without injury? Gold star! Ferre learned a new thing about moths or stars? gold star! Bahorel didn’t pick a figh all week? gold star! Grantaire got out of bed today? gold star!

then when they’re having bad days they can just look at all those stickers and remember they may not always be the best versions of themselves but “hey i got a gold star. i did something good today.”

also grantaire being bombarded by a determined enjolras with stickers on his bad days like “was a great boyfriend today” “didn’t forget my morning kiss” “knows how to make the coffee i like” “makes great art” and basically any reason he can think of

I'm Not Traditionally Beautiful

                    


I'm not traditionally beautiful and I have accepted that 
Once I began to tear down the walls of societies definition of
beauty 
I built my own
In turn my flaws transformed into strengths 
I surrounded myself with self love 
Instead of self hate
You pick at yourself for not having what they posses 
But who's they? 
Who are you fighting to look like? 
To emulate?
I'm not traditionally beautiful 
And I have accepted that

When I was a kid, I always wanted to be darker, still do. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized how uncomfortable others were with being of a darker hue, especially around summer time. Lessons of self love, taught at an early age have always stuck with me, while others were taught to mark themselves with hate and angst because of the colour of their skin. Lets see how far that’ll take you.
