marriage seems so risky like what if you get married & you’re in the car afterwards heading to your honeymoon & you go to put on some music for the background & the person you just swore to spend the rest of your life with comes out with, ‘oh, I don’t really care for the Prince of Egypt soundtrack, can you play something else?’ how do you live with that
It’s okay to walk away.
You’re allowed to leave this place. You’re allowed to leave toxic people. You’re allowed to say no without explaining why. You’re allowed to quit something that you don’t really love.
You can move freely.
You’re allowed to start over with something else.
You’re allowed to fail and try and try again.
Hello! My name is Helen! I’m a single mom of 3, I have the most talented kids in the world. Clr (pronounced Claire but I took out the vowels because I’m spunky! ) is a cheerleader, Heather is my little pageant queen! John isn’t even born but he’s going to be a soccer star, I just know it. Besides my kids being big stars, I’m looking for something else really big if you know what I mean ;) I’m looking forward to that big…glass of wine LOL! I’m obviously a cool mom so you should come talk to me! :) (P.S. Sharon is a bitch!)
It was unfair that people could pretend to be one thing when they were really something else. That they would get you on their side and then do nothing but fail, and fail, and fail again. People should come with warnings, like cigarette packs: involvement would kill you over time.

❛ not all spells are bad, you must stray away from the bad magic. ❜ ❛ there’s nothing wrong with a bit of magic, as long as it’s for the good. ❜ ❛ you’re like a vase and the magic is the water. ❜ ❛ i don’t need magic to see that. ❜ ❛ not every spell is considered to be bad. ❜ ❛ this spell book here contains no such bad magic nor will it ever. ❜ ❛ i’m working up a new potion. it’s for the greater good, of course. ❜ ❛ i’ve never used my powers/magic for anything but good things. ❜ ❛ there is no competition with magic, you either possess, or you don’t. ❜ ❛ no one power/magic is better nor greater than the other. ❜ ❛ remember, everything you learn is to be used for good. ❜ ❛ you think every witch/sorcerer is bad? do i look evil to you? ❜ ❛ i’ve only ever used my magic/powers for good. ❜ ❛ it’s not the magic/powers that are bad, it’s the person who possesses it. ❜ ❛ there is good and bad in everything, you must always chose to be good. ❜ ❛ my powers/magic are not a weapon! i will not be treated as such! ❜ ❛ i cannot help you with your wishes, it’s far too evil. ❜ ❛ magic is a delicate thing and i treat it as such. ❜ ❛ i don’t always use magic/my powers, i don’t always need to. ❜ ❛ it is a blessing not a curse, it’s only a curse if you wish to do evil. ❜ ❛ i did come here to show off my powers/magic, what do you take me for? ❜ ❛
i’m not a witch! i’m a person possessing magic. big difference.
❜ ❛ these are healing potions, they will heal just about any form of life. ❜ ❛ the good always outweighs the bad, just remember that. ❜ ❛ it’s best to use magic/powers when you understand them. ❜
❛ i’ve never used magic for anything other than evil. ❜ ❛ i will be the greatest and the most powerful, mark my words. ❜ ❛ i’ve hexed so many people, i’ve lost count. ❜ ❛ a curse is never easy to lift, hence the sole purpose of it. ❜ ❛ what’s the point in having powers/magic, if you don’t take advantage? ❜ ❛ you have always abused your magical privileges. ❜ ❛ i wouldn’t use my powers/magic for the good if it was life and death. ❜ ❛ you really only know how to cast curses/hexes? ❜ ❛ i specialize in curses and hexes only, anything else is just noise. ❜ ❛ shhh, you shouldn’t even speak of such dark magic. ❜ ❛ this book is full of the darkest magic you’ll ever read. ❜ ❛ what is the difference between voodoo and dark magic? ❜ ❛ dark magic is wonderful, you learn the most from it. ❜ ❛ there are so many hexes/curses to cast, i never know which one to pick. ❜ ❛ have you ever had a curse/hex casted upon you? ❜ ❛ there is no such thing as good magic. ❜ ❛ why are you so wicked with such a beautiful gift? ❜ ❛ you do not deserve to possess magic/powers. ❜ ❛ i’ve got a wicked idea in mind, want to hear? it involves magic. ❜ ❛ the best magic of all, of course, is dark magic. ❜ ❛ have you ever wanted to step into voodoo? ❜ ❛ this a book of dark magic/voodoo, but it is not easy to open. ❜ ❛ you have to do a sacrifice to get this dark magic/voodoo book open. ❜ ❛ have you ever participated in voodoo ritual? it’s very liberating. ❜ ❛ all of these spells contain blood and sacrifice… ❜
what witch/sorcerer doesn’t own a spell book?
❜ ❛ for future reference, never interrupt my ritual again. ❜ ❛ gemstones are great collectibles for healing. ❜ ❛ every movie about witchcraft is kind of off point, i feel. ❜ ❛ i’m unable to use magic/my powers until i’m older. ❜ ❛ do you fly on broom stick and all that? ❜ ❛ it’s actually rather hard to stir up a potion. ❜ ❛ i don’t own a wand nor a broom stick, but i will drop a house on you. ❜ ❛ spell books are often hard to find. ❜ ❛ i could close my eyes, pretend to concentrate and you would be scared. ❜ ❛ you know they used to hang witches back in the olden days. ❜ ❛ this isn’t a spell, this is common sense. ❜ ❛ this isn’t magic, it’s just glitter. ❜ ❛ i’ve always wanted to live in a cabin in the woods though. ❜ ❛ the best time to do a ritual is of an evening. ❜ ❛ would like to do a healing ritual with me? it’s harmless. ❜ ❛ let’s go candle shopping, come on! i love candles! ❜ ❛ i’m still human, you know, with feelings! ❜ ❛ you know, there is something else i possess; feelings! ❜ ❛ look, it’s really not like any of that. ❜ ❛ what’s so special about it? nothing, of course. it’s not special. ❜ ❛ i don’t feel any greater or better because of it. ❜ ❛ there are spells/potions that can be used for both, good and evil. ❜ ❛ i would rather not use magic/my powers, i’d rather pretend i don’t have any. ❜ ❛ i would never flaunt it as if it’s something so great to have! ❜
So many boys and young men who are
physically and sexually abused never come forward about it due to the
stigma. Child abuse awareness month was in April, but this is
something we should always be vigilant about.
- I know you think emotions cloud judgment […] but all of that contradicts the first rule of being mundane. - What’s the first rule of being mundane? - It’s that love makes you stronger […] It’s love that makes you fight harder for what you want.
The culture of college education in this country is so frustrating to me, because it ends up feeling like life and death when it really really shouldn’t. Failing an exam or dropping a class or taking more than four years or even dropping out of school shouldn’t feel like the end of the world, and we all know this, rationally, at yet they do.
(And people who went to college when you could basically always get into your first choice school and pay for the entire year with your summer job busing tables, perpetuate this by making everything about arbitrary metrics of ~success~ rather than happiness/general life satisfaction).
And yeah, there are a lot of cultural and societal factors at play, not least of which is the way that our education system treats college like the goal, something that must be harnessed to guarantee the highest possible earning potential, a necessity for future success and happiness.
But expecting to know what you want to do for the rest of your life when you’re what? 17/18/19? is ridiculous. Hell, I’m in my twenties and in grad school and I still don’t know what I want to do with my life most days. Basically no one I graduated from college with is doing what they ultimately want to do (if they even know what they want to do).
Idk idk. Life isn’t linear and it’s a lot longer than it seems when you’re 19 (which I realize is rich coming from me, the 23 year old), and they way we treat college is kind of (very) fucked up.
Summary: After a patient urgently pleads you to go and help a friend of his, you naively agree to it. Little did you know, that you would get more than what you agreed to, when he leads you to a brothel, to help a dangerous prostitute named Jeon Jungkook.
Pairing: Jungkook x Reader (ft. Jin, but not romantically)
Genre: Smut (M), angst, mafia!au, prostitution!au
A/N:This is a dark and filthy story! Graphic descriptions of sex (masturbating, etc), heavy dom/sub undertones, drug use, vulgar language use……(alot of smut comes in later) This is a mature read! You have been warned!
The air conditioning caused the dimly lit room to be
abnormally cold, as Jin slightly shivered. He was sitting with his hands
forming fists, while his father gave him a stern look.
He didn’t want to be here, that was for sure. He knew his
father must have started to become suspicious of him, since it was taking an
unusually long time for him to locate Jungkook and you. So when he got another
message that his father wanted to see him – he couldn’t stop shaking.
What was he supposed to say? He couldn’t keep lying and give
his father the same answer of ‘they are close.’ No, that definitely wouldn’t
work this time, as he could tell with the look his father currently gave him.
“Son,” his father spoke with a grim voice. “How stupid do
you think I am?”
Even though Jin was nervous, he managed to pull off his
infamous poker face as he replied, “What ever do you mean?”
“Save your lies for someone else Jin,” the greying man
mocked. “You may be able to fool others, but certainly not me. Now tell me
where they are. Now.”
