you have done a good thing for my entire life

“Your first husband—Frank was his name?—he, too, I think, must be commended to God as one of the regrettable things that you can do nothing about.”

“But I could have done something,” I argued. “I could have gone back—perhaps.”

He opened one eye and regarded me skeptically.

“Yes, ‘perhaps,’ ” he agreed. “And perhaps not. You need not reproach yourself for hesitating to risk your life.”

“It wasn’t the risk,” I said, flicking my toes at a big black-and-white splotched carp. “Or not entirely. It was—well, it was partly fear, but mostly it was that I—I couldn’t leave Jamie.” I shrugged helplessly. “I—simply couldn’t.

Anselm smiled, opening both eyes.

“A good marriage is one of the most precious gifts from God,” he observed. “If you had the good sense to recognize and accept the gift, it is no reproach to you.”

inlovewith2dcharacters  asked:

Hi! I'm your fan! Your headcanons&scenarios are so interisting! I really love it! So,i told my self to be brave&send a request to you. After i read your scenario about daddy!dazai,i'm search about the kids that you mentioned in the scenario&found out that one of that kids is actually was born in this month(Haruko),so if it's ok with you,can i request a headcanon about how will Dazai celebrate his daughter birthday? If you can,i'll be waiting patiently for my request,thank you&good luck! :)

Ahhhh I know I missed her birthday month but let’s just pretend shhhh

• Would be the most detailed plan thing Dazai has ever done in his life. This shit is prepared like mission impossible do or die type of thing and has seven hundred parts to it. He wants his little girl to have the best birthday ever.

• He’d take into consideration her favorite thing that current year and center the entire theme on it. There’d be balloons, two different cakes that were three tiers high, a balloon animal artists, a character artist, face painting, three giant bouncy houses, but you have to fight him on getting sky writing like there’s not enough room for that.

• Rents out the entire park and plans it a surprise party so he personally contacts all the kids that are invited and tells them not to say anything like you have to supervise so he doesn’t mafia style threaten them.

• Buys her presents based on her age then multiples it by ten like he rented a storage unit for this party.

• You have to convince him to hire photographers because as much as Dazai likes taking his own pictures you want him to enjoy the party he worked so hard on.

• Everyone in the ADA is invited of course, but they have to get their face painted or they can’t have any food.

• The morning of her birthday Dazai would wake her up with her favorite breakfast and a new stuffed animal—her favorite current animal of course—then act like the rest of the day was completely normal. He’d say that just because it’s her birthday it doesn’t mean she’s going to get out of her chores or going to her after school tutoring session; he’d make it seem like the morning was the only celebration she’s getting.

• Dies internally when he sees she’s upset but he knows she’s stubborn like him and will act like nothing is wrong the whole day.

• Would offer to pick her up after school and say since tutoring got cancelled he has to take her to his office for a bit and she can study with Ranpo.

• He ends up giving her a piggy back ride and saying he has to make a detour for a case and that she should keep her eyes closed so she doesn’t get scared because they’re going into ‘dangerous territory’ or something to make her groan and hide her face in his neck.

• Tosses her onto a giant trampoline while everyone yells surprise so she’s mid bounce and has no idea what the hell is going on but oh my god she’s so happy and she begs Dazai to jump with her so she can tackle him.

• Made her a special princess crown that she wears the entire party.

• Gets his face painted to match hers.

• Makes a dramatic but heartfelt speech about her growing up before the cake is cut and how much he loves her.

TITLE: I Do

CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: One Shot

AUTHOR: Thenewmrsweasley

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine Loki confessing his feelings for you, to you, on the eve of your wedding to another man.

RATING: SFW/G

NOTES/WARNINGS: Little bit of fluff



A girl grows up thinking about her wedding day. About the courtship, the engagement, the parties, and most importantly walking down the aisle to her one true love who promises to have and to hold until death do you part.

But what happens if the man meeting you at the end of the aisle was a consolation prize? What if the man before him was such a fantastical romance that nothing else in the world could ever have compared and as such you find yourself bored? What if the man meeting you in front of your friends and family was a wonderful person and loved you very much, but just wasn’t what you wanted?

I asked for some time to prepare claiming I needed beauty rest my bridesmaids all scattered doing everything they could to please the bride the night before her wedding. But in truth I couldn’t stop thinking, even when the door to my room opened I could get him off my mind…

…Loki.

Summer Goals

I hope you all did well on finals and are now relaxing for the summer. If not, good luck with those finals and don’t stress too much. 

I decided to make a Summer Goals page to keep myself on track. I tend to slack off in the summer, and this summer is probably the most important of my entire life. By August, I will have a teaching job if I can get through all the things I need to get done! At the same time, I need to relax and squeeze some fun in because I know that I will burn out if I don’t take a breather. 

I separated my summer goals by categories: Personal, Spiritual, Fun, and Career. Of course, you will personalize your pages. 

I also am in the process of making a “Meditation Plan,” so keep checking back here to find it! It’s going to be all kinds of pretty. 

@zaynmalik Bye my world,my entire fucking world,i accept your decission,but I’m not agree with it,but if it makes you more happy than now just do it,do the best for you because if you are happy i’m happy.But you have to know one thing,THANKS,thanks for all that you’ve done for me,for us,for the whole fandom,thanks for save me,for teach me many lessons in my life,for help me in my worst moments for be here,with me.Thanks again for all and have a good life,we are always here for you,I hope someday you come back to the band and be together again,but now because I love you,I let you go…

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm going back to university next week, and I have been having a real hard time with schedualing things and studying all of the things i have To study. So I was wondering if you have any tips for This kind of situation. Thanks! 😊

Okay, so the rough part of this is that it will probably never be easy to do these things. The good thing is that skills you learn now for managing your time and getting stuff done are skills that will help you in future jobs and life in general. So here are my steps for managing your schoolwork and your life.

Get a planner. It doesn’t matter what kind of planner you use, the important thing is that you check it multiple times a day. This thing is going to hold your entire life in it. You can use Google Calendar, a different calendar app on your phone, or some kind of paper planner. But you need a planner.

Make up a basic weekly schedule. You can print one off here for free. Don’t worry about what dates it shows, this is just your basic schedule. Write in when your classes are and when other regular things are (e.g., if you have a steady work shift, if you go to church, if you always have Sunday dinner with your grandma). These are non-negotiable time blocks.

Once you have everything written in, see where you can drop study/homework time each day and pencil that in. You probably need at least two hours a day for this (more is better). If you work and your shifts change from day to day, block out lots of time for studying/homework and just take note that it will be less time on days you have to work. This is a worksheet you can use to figure out how much time you need to spend on each class every week. Note that this is just a starting point and you may need more or fewer hours depending on how you study and how you’re doing in the class.

When you get your course outline:

  • Note in your planner which chapters of the textbook will be covered in each class. Then you can figure out how many pages you need to read for the class and divide that between the number of days you have from one class to the next. Make sure you put that on a study to-do list: “Read pages 100-106 of Biology textbook” is a good way to phrase it.

  • Note in your planner when assignments are due. Then break down the assignments into parts and give yourself mini-deadlines to get things done on time. For example, if you have a paper due on November 10, you will need to choose a topic, do your research, and then write the paper. So you will need to give yourself a due date for picking your topic, one for getting all your research done, and one for when you’ll have the paper written by (try to make this a few days before the paper is due so that you have some time to read it over and make sure you didn’t forget something important). Make sure you put these mini-deadlines in your planner, and put the activities on your to-do lists (e.g., “Research for psych paper” might be an item for two weeks).

Make sure you sit down to study and do homework every day during the time you’ve blocked out for that purpose. You might find that the timer method is a good way to do this. If timing how long you sit at your desk is counter-productive (some people find that it increases their anxiety and they can’t get their work done), you can instead:

  • work until you are having a lot of trouble focusing; or

  • set a mini-goal for each sitting (e.g., write your name on the page, read two paragraphs, answer three questions).

You should still use the timer for your breaks, and make sure you are taking active breaks, not sitting and reading a novel or something. The idea is to get your brain involved in doing something totally different for a few minutes, to recharge it so you can focus a bit better.

That is my advice. Good luck!

Caryl Appreciation Week Day 2: Favourite Conversations

(I’ll only do 3 or this will a mile long lol) 

Every bit as good as them..” Season 2 “Chupacabra” 

Carol “I Want you to know you did more for my little girl today than her daddy did in his entire life..” 

Daryl “I didn’t do anything Rick or Shane wouldn’t have done..” 

“Every bit..” 

I love this conversation because it was a huge thing for Daryl to hear at that moment. Probably the first time someone said something like that to him. To here the word good applied to him when all his life he’s been told he’s shit had to been a revelation to for someone like him. And it made such a profound difference in his life and ideas about himself at that moment. 

The welcome back  Season 3“Ain’t A Judas” 

She comes in and approaches him in such a non-confrontational way, when it seems like everyone else is judging him or angry at him for bringing Merle along.And  by getting his guard down with her quiet way of talking to him gets down to the nitty giritty.  

“He’s your brother.. but he’s not good for you.. don’t let him drag you  down..”    

Carol is probably the only one who could tell him this without getting an angry response because it’s clear to him that she’s not being judgemental, she’s doing it out of concern for him and his  emotional well-being. 

“After all look how far you’ve come..” 

 “We ain’t ashes..” Season 5 “Consumed” 

(most of the conversations in this episode but espesically this one) 

One of my favorite conversations because Daryl’s proves himself to be a great listener once again and simply lets Carol talk, while occasionally throwing in a question of a look..

Such as..

“you say I ain’t like I was..how was I?” 

“It was like you were a kid and now your a man..” 

Which was very big for Daryl to hear at that moment. Her telling him he’s grown up as much as he has. And he asks her about herself and Carol tells him  about the shelter, about how she changed and evolved. And how her old self was burned away. She talks for a awhile, and Daryl just listens to, takes it in. Learns. Understand her motivations, her reasons in way others can’t. 

Carol “Everything in the life just consumes you..” 

“Hey.. we ain’t ashes..” 

Read: We are still here.. we’re still trying..

It seems to me that while they don’t talk a lot, when they have a conversation it’s never wasted.. ever.. period.. which is why I could’ve picked every single one they’ve had but these are 3 of my favs :)
