One thing about chronic illnesses that people really don’t seem to understand is that rest doesn’t make it better, at best it can slow down how bad you feel at that time or help it feel a bit more bearable but it’ll get worse if it wants to whether you’re resting or not
Sometimes you’ll be forced to rest because you can’t do anything else, but that doesn’t mean resting makes it better. When you’re chronically ill, you don’t get better, and rest definitely doesn’t leave you feeling refreshed and full of energy
If your whole body hurts and it’s painful to move then you have to rest but it’s horrible doing that the whole time, I know you’re supposed to rest when you’re sick but actually a lot of spoonies I’ve talked to hate it and would love to be able to be more active but we can’t - the last thing we want to do is spend more time at home in bed on our own
Resting doesn’t make anything better for me, it just helps to stop it being worse - everything can still hurt if I don’t do anything and I’d be happier if I could go out, even if that would hurt much more
Honestly that pause before Emori told Murphy the truth and how deliberately she chose to do so and look ice-cold in his eyes and make zero apologies for it. Like. I’m not here for “even Murphy can’t trust her”, y’all, he’s the one person she DIDN’T lie to. She took the chance he’d look at her differently if she was as balls-out ruthless as humanly possible and he just respected and loved her extra.
God, this episode stressed me out because I saw the twist coming the whole time (pats self on back) and I knew it would make a lot of the audience turn on them and Emori especially, and I already kinda hated it for that. But just so you know where I stand – John Murphy doesn’t want, nor does he deserve, a love interest who is a cinnamon roll and makes him a Better Person with her goodness and light. I think there is something *so much more interesting* about the fact that Memori bring out something sweet and real and caring in each other, while also being pretty terrible people who would manipulate and throw people under the bus to save themselves and each other. Murphy is a more sincere, gentler person because of Emori and still they SQUASHED THAT LOVE = REDEMPTION ARC like a bug and I’m into it.
Fiction needs conflict; we’ve been really overdue for a reminder that both Murphy and Emori are Chaotic Neutrals at best, and the fact it came in the same episode as Murphy dancing around adorably and Emori raving about his cooking skills is a bonus as far as I’m concerned.
The brazilian armys, on this last two concerts of The Wings Tour, have been doing a lot of cool projects to make the boys happy. One of them, my favorite one, was when Namjoon was singing Reflection, his solo track. The armys shouted “We love you!” every time after he sang his “I wish I could love myself” part. What happened on today’s concert, on Monday, is that he sang “I guess I do love myself”, instead of the actual lyrics. This made my day and whole year better. Thank you Brazil. Namjoon, we love you

Interviewer: “Does that sum up Nirvana’s whole philosophy about the band - don’t think about it, just do it?”
Krist Novoselic: “I’ve always really liked music, ever since I was a kid. I was really in love with certain bands and they were like my bands. It was probably an identity thing too for me, so I’m really glad that I’m doing something that I totally want to. It means a lot to me, it’s not just some kind of fashion thing.”
Kurt Cobain: “You better watch yourself Krist, you’re getting a bit too serious. You’re gonna get fired, man.”
Okay but backstrom and oshie killed me last night cause backstrom could have easily went for the empty netter and got more points cause he's on fire rn and he gave it to oshie to let him get that hat trick and i know a lot of guys on the caps are so selfless they do that stuff but like it's still so sweet to me that he did that.(:
I KNOW, THOUGH, RIGHT??
Oh look puck possession and an empty net, let me just pass to Oshbabe, surely he has a better chance at it, he’s like two whole inches closer!Maybe his Bäckström instincts just kicked in
Like you said, Caps are just a fantastic team together and a lot of the guys are so selfless. And Nicky has a history of doing stuff like this:
Also, TJ and Nicky were just Up to No Good that night.
“Being a teenager was like a storm because we didn’t have any answers. We didn’t know what we really wanted, who really loved us…who we really loved. We struggled with the answers. And by the time we’d miraculously figured it out, we had already become adults and experienced changes both big and small. That winter, the world was full of separations and goodbyes.”
A child of Busan, the slower, gentler life in the provinces is all Shi Won had known. With grades as low as hers, without an aptitude for the traditional kind of academics, no one expected her to leave. By a turn of events, she ends up turning her boyband fic writing hobby into a creative writing scholarship to a university in Seoul. It’s her dream come true. And for her parents, who’d long since given up hope of sending their daughter to university in Seoul, it’s both a blessing and a curse. When graduation rolls around, they must say their goodbyes as Shi Won heads off to the big city to find a life for herself.
It is in Seoul that she becomes an adult; she lives without the care of her parents, she studies. She graduates university and eventually goes to work in broadcasting. Though she clings to her roots as a Busan girl, refusing to adopt the Seoul dialect, she does not return to her hometown. Years down the road, she stays in Seoul even when her husband gets transferred to Daegu for work. They have children, they’ve built a life in Seoul. The city has become her home, and though she’ll never forget her origins, the separation of that winter had changed things irrevocably. It’s a byproduct of adulthood; homes become hometowns, parents become people you visit on holidays, though you love them all the same.

I'm currently dealing with a lot of stuff and nearly lost two of the people i loved most my whole life all last night and i was extremely stressed out/drained,, but that audio made me extremely happy and better about the situation and calmed me, so seriously thank you so much for making that, it honestly means a lot

Request 1// Could you do a series where Derek and the reader date in high school and are in love, but the reader has to move away with her pack. Then they meet again when they’re older and are still in love? Keep Writing!💖
Request 2// For Derek fluff could you do one where you dated in high school but you moved away and you came back and y'all still love each other? Sorry it’s long…
Being a werewolf was difficult at the beginning. I had no family,as my Alpha killed them, I barely even had a pack. I had an Alpha that was it. But starting Beacon Hills High School and becoming head cheerleader was the best thing ever. I met the love of my life. The best basketball player ever Derek Hale. He made everything a whole lot better. I finally had someone to talk to, someone to go to if I need someone. His family helped me gain control of my shift. My Alpha was useless, the only thing he wanted was to gain more power and make their pack bigger and stronger. They never cared about anyone. They cared about power and that was it. If you didn’t do he said. You were dead. That’s all that has to be said about him. I just wanted to be a normal teenage.
That’s when where Derek comes into my life. He made me forget about the supernatural, he made me feel normal. We were two teenagers in love, and that’s all that mattered to me. We would do everything together.
Tonight Derek had one of the most important basketball games ever, and I was going to be there to cheer him on. I came out of the girls changing rooms and headed straight to the boys, I could hear Derek laughing and joking and his laugh was like music to my ears. When he came out he grabbed me and pulled me close and his lips crashed onto mine.
“You…Look…Beautiful” He told me between kisses. He hugged me tighter.
“Go and get um babe, ” I told him. I tease a kiss but I pulled away.
“What was that?” He laughed.
“Go and Shoot some hoops then maybe you can get another one” I laughed going back to my cheer team. I turned around and blew him a kiss.
The cheer team and I all got down to the gym just in time as the other basketball team arrived. Derek had his game face on and he took one last glance over at me, so I shot him over a wink. He just looked down shaking his head. Then the game started.
It was half time and Beacon Hills were winning. Derek scored every shot. He ran over to you and crashed his Lips onto mine.
“I think you owe me that.” He told me, pulling me closer to him.
“Wel, you showed me what you could do. Now it’s time for me to show you what I got” I told him letting go of him and stepping back.
“Come on girls!” I shouted. We cheered the best we could. Derek’s smile grew wider and wider. When we finished the whistle was blown to signal that the second half was about to begin.
Ended as Beacon Hills winning and Derek Scoring the winning shot. But some idiot had to change the mood. Derek didn’t have full control of his shift yet and this didn’t make it any better.
“You look great, I think you should come back to my place” I just gave him a blank look. I looked over at Derek. I could sense anger, his fists were clenched. But he stormed off before he could see what else could happen. This guy leaned into kiss me. I pushed him making him stumble back falling to the floor.
“Haha, you do make me laugh. I think you should try finding someone else, I am going to find my boyfriend. The winner” I said laughing and walking off knowing how Derek would be.
I sped out of the gym and to the boys changing rooms. I walked in and one of the mirrors was smashed with blood trickling down in. Derek was mad.
“Derek?” I whispered slowly turning the corner. He was sat in the corner of the room with his head in his hands. He looked up at me with bright blue eyes, claws protruding from his fingers. I ran straight over to him and pulled him into my embrace. His breathing began to get heavier.
“Baby listen to me, listen to my voice, everything is okay, just calm down,” I told him never letting him go. I knew he found it hard to find control over his shift. But I was there for him.
“Derek your the only one I will ever love and that will never ever change, that idiot out the is now on the floor” Derek’s blue eyes fade back to normal, his breathing was back. Derek was back.
“Why don’t we get out of here?” I told him dragging him up to his feet and taking him out of the school.
“Movie night at yours?” I asked
“Great Idea” He told me
“I just have to go and see my Alpha but you get all the snacks and movies ready and I will meet you there okay” Derek nodded and gave me a quick kiss before he headed off home.
I practically ran to see my Alpha. I didn’t want to see him but I didn’t want to be killed. I got to the run down old building were we lived. But something was different. There wasn’t just 1 heart beat. There were 5. I crept in and someone attacked me. But I was stronger. I shifted I through this person to the over side of the wall like he was nothing. That’s when I heard clapping.
“Well done Y/N, very proud,” My Alpha said.
“Who are these?” I said through gritted teeth as he was trying to test me.
“My betas,” He said simply
“You made me come all this way to tell me that you added to the pack. Again. What within 2 days are you going to kill them?” I snapped.
“NO! I told you to come her because we are leaving in 7 days so you better tell your lover boy you are leaving” My heart broke into a million pieces. This couldn’t be happening. I couldn’t leave Derek.
“No, I’m not leaving,” I said knowing I had no say in what we were going to do.
“No? NO! Yes, you are or you will end up like my other betas. Dead!” I could feel the tears forming in my eyes. I couldn’t stay there. I ran. I ran straight to Derek’s.
I knocked on the door, holding back the tears. How could this be happening? Talia opened the door.
“Hiya Y/N, Are you okay?” She asked
“Yeah I’m fine is Derek here, he said he would be?” I said and she obviously knew I was lying, even I could fool myself.
“Yeah go straight up,straight,” She told me, and that’s what I did. I walked up the stairs and straight into his room.
“Finally! You ready for Mov…” That’s when he turned around.
“Baby what’s up?” He asked pulling my arm to bring me into his embrace.
Today someone I care about saw my self harm marks and I had to lie about what it was and I feel so awful and it just makes me want to do it even more. Today was gross and I feel gross and I hope your day was a lot better than mine. I hope that you smiled a whole lot <3 don't forget to smile, ok?
Your scars aren’t gross, scars show the trials we’ve been through. They show what molded you into who you are today, they’re a story you shouldn’t be ashamed of regardless of if it’s a sad one. Grow with your scars, learn from them, and love them and yourself.
Can I just say thanks for introducing me to the world of whump? I didn't even know it was a thing until I came to your page and you made me love it so much. I myself get sick a lot and finding whump really made me feel better about myself like hey at least I'm not Dash who's probably incubating 3-5 ostrich egg sized eggs and is feeling full and like shit yet still decided to eat 2 whole pizzas and has some kind of virus and he's just all-round dying, although that doesn't sound too bad...
Aw hey sorry you get sick a lot, but thanks for the awesome feedback I’m so pumped to hear that!! It’s also super interesting to hear different reasons people get into whump.
Lol, let us all be grateful we are not Dash (although I could handle having his salary for sure).
I was walking to class pretty quickly for a test was freaking out over cause I didn't think I was prepared enough. Then I semi-heard my name behind me and my friend ran up next to me. It just made me feel a whole lot better and put me in a good mood :)
Friends are the best! :D I hope your test went well! <33333
Tell me about something nice/awesome/lovely/unexpected that happened to you and that made you smile and/or brightened your day :) Let’s spread some positivity :)
