wishing you all a wonderful 2014

Dear Journal,

Today we had dinner with the Potter’s to celebrate Teddy’s birthday. Is actual birthday was tommorow but we decided to celebrate it with friends and family the day before. We had decorated the room and prepared a lime cheesecake. Teddy’s favorite. Sirius decided that he was going to follow a muggle receipe to make dinner and he looked a bit confused doing so. As Regulus and I were decorating the room, Teddy walked in with two shirts in his hands.

“Should I wear the white one or the pale blue one?” He asked.

“Wear the one that makes you feel good!” I said, not really helping.

“Okay well… James Sirius like the blue one so I’ll pick this one.” He said, smiling to himself.

He helped us set the table and the doorbell rang. James had his arm around Lily, Harry was holding a wrapped box and James Sirius was shyly standing with his hands in his pockets.

“Well come in everyone! You all look wonderful!” Sirius said, making his handshake with James and kissing Lily’s cheek.

I looked over my shoulder and saw Teddy and James Sirius.

“Hey very old boyfriend!” James Sirius laughed.

“Hey very young boyfriend!” Teddy added.

“You look very handsome. I love this shirt on you.” James smiled, kissing Teddy’s lips tenderly.

“I wore it just for you!” Teddy winked.

“Dinner time!!” Sirius yelled from the kitchen.

“It looks delicious Sirius!” Harry said, sitting next to his mother.

“I had to watch this weird muggle video to get the receipe it was soooo confusing!” Sirius laughed, serving everyone.

“Let’s make a toast! For Teddy’s birthday!” Lily said, raising her wine glass in the air.

We ate Sirius’ delicious meal and talked about our summer plans. When everyone was done, i silently walked to the kitchen and dimmed the light, making the canddles on the cake glow. Everyone started singing happy birthday to Teddy. He blushed and the tip of his hair turned pink. I wish I knew what he wished for but he said it was a secret. We all ate the delicious cake and Teddy got his presents.

Lily, James and Harry gave him this mini record player with small discs of his favorite bands. The sound coming from this was perfect! Regulus gave him a book and a bucket list if all the places he wanted to visit with him.

“Can I give you my gift tommorow night? It involves the stars and it has to be on your very birthday for it to work.” James Sirius said, sitting on Teddy’s lap.

“I can’t wait.” Teddy said, kissing his cheek, making the boy blush.

“We’ll give you your gift tommorow too.” I said, my arms around Sirius.

“Okay.. Thank you everyone for all your love and support. I couldn’t have wished for a better family.” Teddy smiled, giving a hug to everyone.

“Oh Ted? Guess what?” James said, his arm ln his wife’s shoulder.

“Are you going to make a joke about me being 17 Prongs?” Teddy laughed.


“Oh my Lord Prongs you really waited for that one!” Sirius laughed.

We had such a wonderful night with everyone.

Julia’s talent is undeniable and the impression she made on people around the world is surefire. So many little girls were hooked on skating and started asking parents to take them to skating rinks after watching her Sochi performance. That performance and that Olympic magical moment she created nobody will take away from her or from us viewers. It’s extremely sad she has to end her career like that and has to go through all the difficulties happening to her now. I wish her to bounce back, be healthy again and live a happy, fulfiled life off the ice.

My phone just died and so I had to dig out my old iPhone 5. Found this pic on it from that time in 2014 when I got to hold a bottle of 1998 Romanee-Conti for a few seconds - wish I could have tasted it as well 😍🍷

Taylor Swift and Lorde

Lorde was never too far from Swift in Instagram photos from the 1989 hitmaker’s 24th birthday celebration in December 2013. “My 24th birthday was a Melbourne garden party,” Swift wrote in the caption. “Thank you for all the birthday wishes!!”

On a picture-perfect day in Malibu, California, the friends hit the beach in similar ensembles in February 2014. “Bare feet in the sand on a Saturday,” wrote Swift of the Instagram-worthy moment.

The duo put their culinary skills to the test in August 2014. Lorde wrote on Instagram, “took a wonderful cooking class in rhode island alongside the already-super-good-cook, ms. @taylorswift.”

Lorde was really channeling her inner ‘80s goddess in October 2014. She posted this photo, saying, “an awesome guy took this tonight after the show. feeling very 1989! @taylorswift”

Always one to celebrate, Swiftposted this snap in honor of the New Zealander’s 18th birthday in November 2014. “It’s Ella’s 18th birthday technically but we all know she’s really 300 and knows all the secrets of the universe. #ELLAflickerbeat,” she wrote.

It was all about that California sun in January 2015. “Wandering around Catalina with my favorite people to wander around with,” wrote Swift, who was joined by Lorde, Gracie Gold, the HAIM sisters, and Jaime King.

I. Love. You. So. Much. Ella. @Lordemusic.”

Man....you'll never get me to believe that the guy who was like "No to the hell no no" over an Elounor engagement is suddenly just oh so eager to prove to people how wonderful his relationship is. It's legitimately crazy to watch if you were here in 2014 and witnessed that period go down. Idk why this overcompensation is happening with Elounor 2.0 but it's quite uncomfortable to watch. I wish she could do us a favor and pull the plug herself to save them both more embarrassment.

they’re always adding that extra little unnecessary tidbit that makes it all the more obvious what they’re trying to do

anonymous asked:

I want to go back in time and discover BTS when they debuted lol. I became a Kpop fan last year but for the past few days I've been watching BTS mvs and listening to songs from years ago and I feel like I missed out on a lot. They've really come a long way. I wonder where BTS would be if they didn't do The Most Beautiful Moment series. I read that they almost disbanded but I'm glad they continued.

you became a fan last year and only started to listen to their old songs now?? or did u just start getting into bts? bc i know i first became a fan just bc of the music, i started my blog like a few months after i downloaded their songs. 

honestly i wish sometimes i wouldve been a fan earlier too, bts came to berlin in 2014 and i missed all that :/ 

i think bts wouldve always made hyyh bc thats where their sound evolved to naturally. and the hyyh trilogy is one of the best musical work theyve done imo. and im glad thats what got them even bigger. but they were never gonna disband. i think you must be mixing that up with exid. that was a girlgroup that made a comeback with ‘up & down’ and if that wouldnt have been successful they wouldve had to disband. but then this fancam went viral and the song was a hit. bts’ disbandment was never on the table.


The Open Road; of going places.

Still believing in film…


I must admit that 2013 was a year of few pictures for me. I definitely did not hit the “shutter-fired” quota an avid film shooter should have. I would like to blame work for my lack of photo-capturing, but the truth is I did not push myself hard enough. So really, I am the one at fault. But fret not, 2014 is here and the RESET button has been hit! Camera is loaded and my finger is shutter ready. I will be globe trotting once again this year, visiting many new places I have never been to before, and this time, I will be sure to look through my lens!!

On Tumblr news, we will start to make use of the caption option on Tumblr to tag our photos so all you need to do to find out what film and camera was used to capture the images we feature is to scroll over the image or click to enlarge. The aim we have here at CGSF has been from the very start to share with our readers what to expect when dealing with certain types of films and cameras. Although the film catalogue is getting smaller by the day, we sometimes stumble upon old expired film or happen upon vintage cameras at your local flea market, so hopefully our site is able to aid as a source of answers to your questions.

2014 is still very new and there are many days to come with many opportunities and possibilities just waiting to be plucked. I wish you all the best and may this year be a year full of wonderful and enlightening things to come. 


anonymous asked:

hello! sorry to bother, but i was wondering if you have any app recs for iphone and mac? i'm not looking for something specific, just some apps you really like in general. i really love your recs, and i hope i'm not bothering you with this!

wow, this is certainly unexpected! I have a list already which I made for my friend when she got her new phone, and these are all for iPhone/Mac, but may very well be available in other stores:

Kalau ada satu lagu yang paling tepat merangkum tahun 2014 buatku, mungkin lagu itu adalah lagu ini:

Not Your Year by The Weepies

Scattered shadows on a wall, you watch the long light fall 
Some impressions stay and some will fade
Tattered shoes outside your door, clothes all on the floor
Your life feels like the morning after all year long. 

Every day it starts again
You cannot say if you’re happy
You keep trying to be
Try harder, maybe this is not your year.

Movies, TV screens reflect just what you expected
There’s a world of shiny people somewhere else
Out there following their bliss
living easy, getting kissed
while you wonder what else you’re doing wrong

Breathe through it, write a list of desires
Make a toast, make a wish, slash some tires
Paint a heart repeating, beating “don’t give up, don’t give up, don’t give up.”

Tak jarang selama 2014 dengan penuh rasa bingung dan sedih aku mengadu pada diri sendiri, bertanya kenapa hidup itu begitu susah? Tak jarang aku rasanya ingin menghilang cukup lama dan ga harus ambil keputusan-keputusan besar itu. Tak jarang juga, Ben yang terpaksa menjadi saksinya.

Terlepas dari foto-foto instagram yang ceria, 2014 sungguh adalah tahun yang berat, penuh kerja keras buatku untuk menghadapi bahkan melawan diriku sendiri. Tahun di mana keinginanku untuk belajar melepaskan akhirnya menjadi kenyataan. Tahun di mana aku menjadi hal-hal yang bukan-aku, semata-mata untuk menemukan aku. 

Tapi, aku ga bisa bilang bahwa aku ga bahagia. Justru di tahun 2014 aku akhirnya bisa merangkul kegagalan, kesedihan dan kehilangan dan menerimanya sebagai bagian dari memahami kebahagiaan itu sendiri. Inikah yang mereka sebut-sebut sebagai kedewasaan? Kebijaksanaan? Entahlah, apapun itu, aku sebenernya ga mikirin sih labelnya karena dengan sebuah label proses ini terkesan menjadi sebuah akhir, sebuah pencapaian. Sedangkan, apakah betul semua dalam hidup ini harus berakhir pada sebuah pencapaian?

Di malam terakhir tahun 2014 ini, aku merasa… tenang. Meski sekali dua kali emosi-emosi eksesif masih mengalir melalui nadi dan membuncah di jantung, aku… merasa aku. Dan aku bahagia sekali, pada akhirnya aku bisa menjalani hari demi hari tanpa penyesalan sedikitpun. 

Begitu banyak rencana yang sedang aku persiapkan untuk 2015. Membuat rencana itu menyenangkan sekali ya. Bermimpi memupuk harapan-harapan lama. Seperti bunga-bunga. Semoga mereka semua bisa bersemi tahun depan, meski aku paham, harus ada yang mati di antaranya.

Selamat menyambut tahun baru 2015 ya, teman-teman. Semoga kita bisa menjadi manusia yang benar-benar bahagia.

I was inspired by Blue to do a similar favorite/best posts of 2014 since the generator spit out mostly favorite cc posts and downloads, all of which were from my ts3 game.  My simblr is a mix of ts2 and ts3 and I wanted my best of…post to represent that.  So thank you Blue for the wonderful idea  (you have so many).  These photos are in no particular order, they are simply my favorite.

This simblr has been active for one year and in that time I’ve met so many wonderful and inspirational people.  I love all my followers and I wish each and every one of you a happy holiday season.  I will see you all in 2015!!!!

four times dan and phil discussed about dogs and having children + the one time they didn’t

genre: fluff

warnings: none

words: 2k

summary: Dan and Phil have this weird obsession with adopting pixelated children and adding the surname “Howlter,”, there are four times where they talked about this and the one time they didn’t have to anymore.

a/n: long ass title. What is this, a Panic! at the disco song?

Wishing you an Happy 33rd Birthday, my beloved snowflake.


Happy Holidays, tumblr! 

I’d like to wish you all a wonderful time during this holiday season, no matter what you celebrate (or not); and also a fantastic 2014.

I’d also like to thank you all; during 2013 I talked to and met amazing people here. You guys have no idea just how important you all are; I’m really grateful for the love and support I get from you. You’re all beautiful, wonderful people and I wish you guys all the love and happiness you can get - and then some.

December 7, 2014 - Happy 20th Birthday Yuzu! 

Dear Ice Prince, 

Thank God I saw you on tv (that was during the Sochi Olympics). Yuzuru caught my attention the moment he stepped on the ice. The way he skated is really something different. Its beautiful and breathtaking. Plus you gotta see that wonderful smile and that face that says I’m here to be remembered. Been following him since the Olympics up till the Cup of China accident. I just wish you all the best Yuzu. Keep fighting like you’ve always did. Don’t ever lose that smile and determination. Remember we, your fans are always here as well as Pooh (you still have tons of Pooh to receive so never give-up). Goodluck on the upcoming GPF Barcelona (^o^)/

Love you!

I went to Nagano to stay with my family in this winter vacation. My puffer Peko-chan was left in charge of the house during that. Generally fish don’t need everyday-feeding, it is not a problem to left them hungry for a week, but Peko-chan is harapeko (very very hungry) puffer so she rushed to beg for food when I returned. She got fed up and started to dance happily.

I am going to continue posting cute pictures of puffer in this year, too. Your comments and messages always encourage me. I wish 2014 will be a wonderful year for you and me and all the puffers. 

Welcome to:


What NaruSaku 2014 is? Simply put we, the crazy and lovely NaruSaku Fandom, decided to celebrate for the course of an entire year, our most loved pairing in the Narutoverse! And not only that! We are also planning on celebrating Naruto manga itself!

How all this madness started? From noiznation’s #narusaku 2014’s trend, to sparda3g’s post where he shared his belief that this will be NaruSaku’s year, to chatte-georgiana who caused an uproar, to muku-ge, our lovely Japanese friend who offered her help with her insight of the Japanese culture itself, to freakysandra1995’s involvement, to derangeddoctor’s help with our blog, to uzuharu’s wish to have Kurama involved, to hani-boo’s little gift for the event as you can see in the picture, everyone, absolutely everyone in our lovely tag agreed with this event so we decided to make it real!

Therefore, here we are! Presenting to you the NaruSaku 2014 event!

How are we going to be able to keep this the entire year? Simple! We, the fandom, as supportive as we are to each-other, put our brains together and came-up with ideas, themes, concepts on how to RUN THE WORLD!… Actually, no, just this event! [But NaruSaku will soon RUN THE WORLD! Just you wait! :P].

Over the course of the entire year we, based on themes we already have established, will celebrate our lovely pairing!

To make it more simple for everyone to understand, let us explain.

An year has 12 months. We have divided those 12 months on 4 seasons

  • NaruSaku 2014: Winter
  • NaruSaku 2014: Spring
  • NaruSaku 2014: Summer
  • NaruSaku 2014: Fall

Now, as we all know, each season has 3 months. Those 3 months will belong, of course, to the season in cause.

On the course of each month belonging to the season, we will have established already 3 themes/month. According to those 3 themes, you and everyone else, can do whatever you want: write an analysis, do an edit, write a fanfiction, draw a piece of fanart, do an AMV, anything!

You are not bound by any means to do only an AMV because it’s the AMV’s day and you don’t know how to do it. No! You will have total freedom and flexibility to chose whatever you want to do according to the theme we have set for that month.

You are afraid we don’t have a theme set and you have an idea for an edit/fanfic/fanart based on a theme/subject you’ve thought about? Don’t worry! You can always submit anything to us here! You can even confess! On the page you’ll see that besides the usual options, we have already introduced the *select month* option so you can select on which month you want your submission to appear! Not to mention it will be easy for everyone to keep track on anything submitted based on the month you chose.

We want to encourage your guys imagination so even if you thought about a theme that’s not present in our already-established themes and you would’ve liked to do a fanart/fanfic/graphic/anything based on that, you can still do it! You can contribute with anything you wish to, even outside the already-established themes!

We already thought about that too! We’ll call it NaruSaku 2014: Extras. Just in case we miss something you guys saw! So don’t be discouraged, come and join the fun with us!

So yes, people, this is NaruSaku 2014! An event where everyone else comes and has fun around together, in the NaruSaku family.

Wondering what theme is set for a particular month? Don’t forget to go to the Seasons tab and check for yourself! We have laid down there all the seasons with their corresponding months, that way, if we’re for example in the fall, in October, you can check what we did in the summer, in July [I know what you did last summer!style *wink wink*].

So what you’re waiting for?! Come and join the fun! NaruSaku is waiting to make your 2014 a rocking year!

* Hugs to you all, The NaruSaku 2014 team.
