who else has these!

Some Questions to Ask When Things Go Wrong

1. Is this something I should take seriously and try to put right; is it something that is worth working on, and investing more energy on?

2. How much is my fault? Is it something I can change further down the road?

3. How much is outside my control; will anything I do really alter the situation or make a lasting difference?

5. Have I done everything I possibly can? Have I tried and exhausted all possible options?

6. Is it something I should put behind me, and decide to walk away from?

7. Who else has gone through a similar experience, or had this happen to them? Who can I talk to who will understand, and give me valuable help and advice?

8. What can I learn from this experience?

9. How can I build myself up again, so I have the needed strength to go forward in my life?

10. What small steps can I take to enhance my self-esteem?

Kim and Jimmy’s scene at the end of the ep made me melt along with everyone else. She’s the only person who has ever stood by him when things got hard. No one has ever loved him this way. He can barely understand it. 

But at the same time… when he asks her why she chooses “this guy”… she says to consider it a sunk cost. She says it playfully, but really… it tells us several things. She’s aware of his flaws. She doesn’t deny them. She doesn’t say he’s a great guy with no faults. She doesn’t lie to him. 

But… to be told someone stands by you because they’ve invested too much to back out… that’s not really the best thing. I know she’s trying to make light and I am not criticizing her… but it tinges this moment with a subtle discomfort.  There’s a reason the sunk cost fallacy is… a fallacy. The show always gives us this unsettled feeling, with these two. The beauty of this moment is tinged with sadness, because we can see the fault lines that’ll eventually crack and shatter.

Also Fereldan refugee

Here’s the way I see it, it’s modern era or semi-modern and a Blight breaks out of Ferelden. Hawke and Co. and everyone else flees to Kirkwall as per usual right, and because Leandra already has citizenship in Kirkwall, her children, by extension also has citizenship there. Aveline is accepted by a working visa on the acocunt of her being invicible and the Guard really want her working for them.

And just as they are about to pass through the er, immigration gate, there is a commotion because Kirkwall (and its Knight Commander) is very adamant of not letting a mage through the gates. Anders, who had come to Kirkwall to seek refugee like everyone else, is bein denied entrance. And Hawke, who has a heart of gold goes over and lies to the immigration officers that oh, there must’ve been a mistake, they’ve just been newly wedded, you see, the captain of the ship they came on married them, (it’s true! Isabela says somewhere from the back) oh how silly of me to forget that, isn’t that right, honey?

And while they won’t grant refugee status to mages, they can’t exactly stop Anders from getting his papers from his legal spouse.

and that’s how Hawke and Anders ends up falling into a fake marriage scheme for papers.

Cameron Crowe is a legend and I was already totally blown away by the fact that he was the one to interview harry but to hear him talk about it is absolutely incredible. We had no clear idea what he was specifically doing for months on end but I anticipated something really special coming from him and he's really delivering on all counts. The way Cameron talks about how attuned harry is and goes on about his tells you so much about the kind of impression he makes. He's going to be such a star

i was so overwhelmed by the pictures at first that i didn’t even realize cameron crowe had interviewed him and then my brain broke for about five seconds before i was like, “well who else?” (rip rob sheffield your time will come again). it has to be so amazing for him to not only be in this place where he can make the music he wants to make and be taken seriously, but to start off his career with with a rolling stone cover and a write up by cameron crowe. like harry’s probably watched almost famous (and say anything lol) a thousand times and internalized some of it, thinking about the life of a musician and how does and does not want to be seen.

i’m so pleased that cameron crowe seems to have liked him so much and be so impressed with his energy and respectfulness and his love of music because like… that dude has seen some shit. he could’ve dragged harry or mocked him or not taken him seriously–not that i think that would’ve happened to HARRY, but it’s happened to other artists in rolling stone and ruined them–but he didn’t. @hazzwatch pointed out that in ask that the article didn’t tell us much we as fans didn’t already know about harry but that there were still some amazing glimpses into how harry thinks and who he is, and i very much agree. it was more like cameron crowe telling this story about harry styles, highlighting what people generally know about him and mentioning things that might surprise or interest people who don’t know much about him and weaving all of that together with his music and what inspires him and where he is as an artist, as someone who is a young celebrity but wants to grow more as a musician because he loves it and is so excited to do it and just?? it was really beautiful to me. i hope getting to talk to cameron crowe and read what he wrote about him was a special as harry as it was for us. i think harry might have made a fan for life out of him and that’s kind of like… really, really cool.

Dear *anyone*

Dear anyone,

You are amazing. Yes, you reading this. I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t think it was true. And you have the ability to do many great things, no matter your past or upbringing or anything.

You are strong. You are brave. You are smart. You are a fantastic person who has traits that no one else has. You are attractive in your own way.

And you…you are you. And that is good.

I hope you remember that.




Daisy Johnson in Agents of SHIELD: ‘What If…’

call it poetry –

the 150 patchwork characters above your instagram photos and below your profile picture; the 650 words you bled into your common app essay, baptized by midnight tears and shaky fingers on backlit keyboards; the 2 am text you sent your friend when she was sad, which read more like a love song than any top 50 hit; the scribbled words you placed among doodles and integrals on the back of your math test, the ones you almost hesitated to erase before you turned it in. 

call it art –  

that photo of your best friend laughing, even though it’s blurry and his left hand is out of frame; those pancakes, the ones the man at the other booth smirked at you for admiring before eating, laughing harshly before returning to his bitter coffee and significantly underappreciated waffles; the sunsets and sunrises that fill your photo stream, reminders that yesterday was beautiful and tomorrow might be too; the photo of yourself that you can’t decide if you quite like, but can’t delete either, your finger nervously hovering above it. post it. 

call it music –

the laughter of your friends from the other room that makes you smile, even though you missed the joke; the sound of your turn signal clicking, melting into the patter of raindrops on the windshield’s glass; the whistle of the summer wind outside of your old bedroom, the one that promised fairytales and twisters in sleepless childhood nights; the rhythm of your shoes in the empty hallway, reverberating with the sound of your arrival.

it is poetry.

it is art.

it is music. 

it is you.
