- “P.S. I never got to tell you that I wasn’t rejecting you. I was going to say yes. :) …. I just don’t know Korean.”
It may have been unspoken, but everyone at Seoul High School knew that Jungkook was not a blunt boy. Despite his charming good looks and his undeniable physical abilities, the boy was the epitome of diffidence. His voice was soft, like that of a blanket for a small child and his bunny-toothed smile was welcoming in a sense that made him have viridity that every boy who attended lacked. The scar on his cheek was endearing and the beauty mark on his lip was breathtaking. It was an awful shame, all the girls who tripped over him to get his attention when all his attention was on you.
He cursed himself to hell for all the times he had been caught foolishly staring at you – there had been biology in fifth period, Geometry in freshman year, AP English literature in junior year — and all those times were merely in class. As school progressed, he tried to grow bolder with you, he’d purposely leave his sweatshirt as his lunch table that was across from yours or in P.E. in which he purposely got himself out just so that he could next to you. Once, he even managed to convince of the elder jocks to switch partners with you just so that he could see your smile in a radius that was less than four meters… but despite all of that, you never noticed.
There had not been other boys, because how could there be when there was Jeon Jungkook? There was no boy as adorable, funny, cheeky, sweet, and all other positive adjectives, as Jeon Jungkook. Jungkook, himself, with his bashfulness, he never knew that your lack of attention wasn’t because of his shyness – but rather because you knew that you had to indulge yourself in studies and not of the opposite sex. After all, the age-old icebreaker ‘where do you see yourself in ten years?’ did not forecast a Jeon Jungkook in your future.
So with this in mind, you were surprised to find Jeon Jungkook standing beside your locker at the end of the day. His head hung low and you could see the tremble of his hands. A small, folded post-it note was in his hands and you noticed that he had folded it far too many times out of nervousness. You watched him from around the corner for a second, confused as to why he had been standing there. Did you forgot to return him a pencil?
His name sounds foreign on your lips, but Jungkook likes the childlike symphony you carry when you say it. He doesn’t say anything at the call of his name. He only stands there quietly, a blush painted on his cheeks form being so close to you. Were you always this pretty? His heart flutters at the very sight of your gray oversized hoodie that you always wore when you felt casual (which was practically every day). He always felt like you were the prettiest when you weren’t over-embellishing yourself.
“Jungkook…? Are you there?” Jungkook’s thoughts of you come to a halt once he hears your voice again. His cheeks redden and he nearly tears the post-it note in two from clenching it so hard.
“I-I wanted to give you this.” His voice is barely audible as he averts his gaze to the ground. He could never let himself meet your eyes – especially not when you were an angel. He’s thankful that he listened to his older friend, Park Jimin, for advising him not to cut his fringe, because he would die if you could them.
You watch the boy in front of you, brows knitting at his actions. You heard of how shy he could be, but the thought never crossed that the reason could have been you. After all, you were just Y/N. “Jungkook? You haven’t given it to me.”
“O-oh,” He blushes softly. “Right.” He holds the small red post-it note in front of him, as though it is his first born son that he does not want to give up.
You take in his nervous gestures: how he nervously chews on his bottom lip with his adorable bunny teeth, the way that he averts his eyes from yours every time you turn your gaze on him.
Deciding not to torment the boy any further by waiting, you unfold the note. You blink for a second as you stare down at the note in front of you.
Jungkook cannot help but feel anxious as he waits for your reaction. Were you about to turn him down? Were you going to laugh at him for thinking he could ever ask you out?
Jungkook begins to speak before you can.
“I-I’m sorry,” Jungkook stammers as he stuffs his hands deeper into his green and black varsity jacket. It is hard to ignore the flush of his cheeks when it contrasts so deeply with the usual sun-kissed tan of his cheek. “I-I’ll just go.” His voice is shaky and he feels lightheaded. He knew he shouldn’t have made a move.
“Jungkook,” your voice shakes a little as it begins to piece together. His nervous actions, him always staring at you, his flushed cheeks… did Jeon Jungkook like you? “Wait,” You call out to him. But before you can stop Jungkook, he is gone. What burdens you the most is that you do not get to tell him that you didn’t reject him, but that you could not read Korean.
The next day, Jungkook is flustered as he sits at his biology table. His leg jerks with nerves as he dreads you coming to sit beside him. After yesterday, the last thing he wanted to do was see the girl who rejected him. Would you laugh at him when you saw him? Would you tell everyone about his fumble?
Jungkook’s thoughts are interjected when you slide in your assigned seat beside him. His cheeks are redder than ever and he nervously - purposely but he doesn’t want you to know that – drops his pencil to avoid seeing your beautiful face. He swears to himself that you’re much too pretty to be walking around Seoul High School. You deserved to be in an art museum in his opinion.
Jungkook puts his mechanical number two pencil on the black table in front of him and his brows knit together as he stares down at a red post-it note. He gulps, immediately eyeing you as though this was a cruel act by the fates on him. Your eyes are too fixated on your biology teacher’s PowerPoint (at least that is what you want him to think) to notice him looking at you.
His hands shake ever so slightly and he nearly rips the post-it note, much like he had before, once he opens it. His entire heart flutters when he reads the response.
(P.S. I never got to tell you that I wasn’t rejecting you… I was going to say yes :) …. I just don’t know Korean.)
Jungkook’s finds himself giggling ever so slightly at the note. You smile at the melodious keys that erupt from him as he giggles. Jungkook is too excited to take notes for the rest of biology and for the rest of class, he spends his time trying to hide the blush on his cheeks.
His fUcking cocky smirk when you look at him across the room or hall.
His friends knock shoulders with him and laugh as he just stares and grins at you.
“Fuck you guys.” He laughs before jogging over to you.
You both support each other soso much. You go to every game of his and he attends everything and anything that you do too.
“Dude, why weren’t you at the party on Saturday?” “I was with Y/N. And she’s better than any party with you knobheads.”
He watches anyone who approaches you, just in case they get too close.
He understands you can handle yourself, but still likes to be overly protective.
Clingy af when he wants to be.
“Justin, what are you doing?” “I’m hugging you.” “Yeah, and you’ve been doing it for ten minutes. We need to get to class.” “I don’t wanna.” “We need to.” He’d sigh, pull back, and grab your hand in his before walking you to class, pouting the entire way.
Growls and deep moans.
Waiting until you’re ready - for anything and everything.
“Love ya, shithead.”
*you stick your middle finger up at him in return*
LOUD, BOISTEROUS LAUGHTER.
Resting his head in your lap or on your stomach.
Soft moans when your play with his hair or give him back massages because he just gets so sleepy and relaxed. You just crack up laughing and he bLusHes!!
“Shut up.” He’d mumble in return.
You’re friends with Clay and so Justin tries to not be a cockhead to him.
He succeeds… most of the time.
He slings his arms over your stomach as you lay in bed, much to your dismay as his arm is heavy. But he’s tired and his hair’s fluffy and he’s just toO cUte!! so it’s okay as soon as you look down at his peaceful face!!
You’re there to reassure him about his home life, and let him vent about it all. He never tells you, but he honestly really appreciates it and he gets so warm and fuzzy inside because of you. He thinks you’re the most amazing thing to grace this earth - and you are.
He keeps you away from Bryce and Marcus as much as he can.
He cries about Hannah. He truly feels horrible for what has happened and what he did.
He loves you - wholeheartedly and unconditionally - and tells you every day.
I don’t know your heart I don’t know where to begin But I can feel you erasing The rivers I’d drawn in The more I stood still The faster you were running You don’t know how it feels Crawling under your skin
So far, so far away Don’t you know we could be
High or Low, you never fell beneath me And I gave up on you, but I never forgot you
I can’t be your friend Hold your hand while you bleed There’s nothing left to give you Nothing more I need Time to let it sleep Oh, the damage was real But nothing cut me so deep I could not heal
Don’t you know we could be High or Low, you never fell beneath me And I gave up on you, but I never forgot you
High or Low You never fell beneath me And I gave up on you But I never forgot
can you post the list of the songs bts have made playlist on Spotify ?(because i can't access spotify from where i live...)
Okay, I just typed them all out! I’ll try to remember to update this when Tae and Jimin’s playlists come out. If I forget, send in another ask and I’ll type those up too! I know how hard it is to not be able to access certain things because you’re in a different country. So please enjoy~ - Kristi P.S. I typed it the way Spotify shows it, so it’s Title - Artist - Album
High school is a frustrating time for everyone. In the end what most students have to say with our experience is a big ol’ “F You!” Here are some tips that we have compiled based on what we wish were told our freshman year to help all the students transitioning to high school.
Report cards: Your SEMESTER GRADE is what ultimately matters. Your quarter grade will not be seen by colleges, but it still counts toward your GPA. So don’t freak out if you get a B or even a C for one quarter, if you work really hard the rest of the year you can still have an A as your final grade in the class. Thus if you get a C one quarter work your ass off the next quarter to get an A, that would average out into a B (depending on how high the A and how low the C was before) . Or if you get an 89 one quarter work for an 92 the next. Midterms are taken into account when calculating the first semester grade and final exams are taken into account when calculating the second semester grade. *When applying for college, they will only see your first semester grade. However it’s still important to keep up the grades because colleges ask for a final transcripts where they only see your second semester grades (which is your final grade overall) and if you’re performance has decrease, they are allowed to withdraw your acceptance.
What is a quarter?: In our school system, a quarter lasted 9 weeks. Thus when we received our first report card, it indicated that the first quarter was over. The next report card indicates the second quarter, the average of the first and second quarter grade make up the first semester grade. Since there is 2 semesters, in total there was 4 school quarters.
What is a semester?: The average of two quarter grades makes a semester. There are two semester grades in a year. The grade you get each semester is what will show up on your transcript.
2. Go to tutoring. If you don’t understanding something, staying quiet will seriously cause more harm than good. Being afraid of looking stupid is no reason to fail your class (it’s more likely that the other students in your class don’t understand what’s going on either and are just waiting for that one brave soul to ask a question-be that brave soul). Go get the help you need. Don’t just go once, go until you actually understand the material. Be active in class-always ask questions and answer the questions teachers ask. It’s important to also practice the material on your own to really test your understanding.
3. Make friends with your teachers. Seriously. They are the one grading your work in the end and often, college and scholarship applications require recommendation letters from an instructor. Even some prestigious school clubs that will look good on college applications require you to have a teacher recommendation. Thus, don’t be afraid to be that kid that sucked up to the the teacher or was the “teacher’s pet”. Being friends with your teacher will not only be beneficial for your grade or college future, but it also creates this incentive to do really well in the class.
4. Take AP classes (or anything type of accelerated programs like IB, magnet program, etc.) . Even if you’re not an excellent student take AP classes. Why? Okay for me personally (M) AP classes helped raise my GPA dramatically. An A is a super A, equipped with a little cape and everything. An B is an A. An C is a B, etc. You may not pass the exams, but that shouldn’t slow you down. It helps keep your GPA high and helps you develop study skills that will help you tremendously in college. So take as many classes as you can! Take some your first year, you can handle it. It is doable. Many people will make you feel as if you can’t do it. Keep a positive mind frame and study, study, study! AP will help you although it will break you, it will always be worth it in the end.
5. DON’T BET AGAINST YOURSELF! Never think that you can’t do something. Or you’re not good enough, or your dream is impossible for you. Why are you betting against yourself? You are truly all you have, you’re the only one to live your dream, so be amazing. Count on yourself! NEVER bet against yourself.
6. You honestly don’t need a massive backpack. You don’t. You’re only going to use so much in a day. You’re going to need separate folders for your classes. A pack of paper and notebooks. You can either get separate notebooks for each class or get a big notebook where you can keep multiple subjects in there at once. For me (K), it was extremely useful to have separate notebooks for my math and science classes as there was a lot of notes to be taken, and before an exam, it acted as a great source for review. Keep a small binder handy for your paper or any miscellaneous files. Have a pencil pouch equipped with pens, pencils, an eraser, and a highlighter. If you really want to be fancy, you can also carry a mini stapler.
7. Bring your own snacks. You will get hungry all the time. Also carry around a water battle to keep yourself hydrated. Those long walks from class to class will take a toll on you.
8. Freshman year is IMPORTANT! A lot of people will tell you it is easy and it doesn’t matter. But it does! Freshman year is you’re base if your base year looks bad then you will suffer all the rest of your high school career trying to bring up your GPA. Freshman year is your starter GPA, make it easy for yourself and pay attention to those easy classes. You’ll have a good base and later, say you get a B during your junior year, it won’t have as much as an affect compared to if you totally screwed up your freshman year. The better your do your freshman year, the more you’ll succeed throughout high school because you’re already in the habit of working hard and achieving goals you’ve set for yourself!

me from going with you.

-Did you actually just blue shell me on our date, you fucker?
-Um, hi. Are you the one using my Wi-Fi?
-I know you hate cats, but you’re personality literally speaks cat, so I got
you one. No you’re not gonna give it back to me.
-I have a confession to make, I keep coming back to this diner every Wednesday
night -no, not for the dinner special. But because I’ve been having problems
and the sound of your singing literally touches my soul.
I’m sorry that you want to put a poster for your band up right there, but I

1) Grades matter, but they aren’t everything Things happen and we don’t always get the grades we want. We brush it off with “grades don’t matter” or “I can make it up with stellar extracurriculars” but the consequences of taking grades lightly add up and separate you from the top tier of students colleges are looking for. Truth be told, when you’re trying to get into a top university, grades matter. A lot. But also know having the best grades isn’t everything either. There’s a lot more to it. But the first cut— grades.
2) Try to pass as many AP’s as you can AP material is hard, yes. But getting a passing grade on the tests will save you an even harder time taking the class in college, not to mention a lot of time and money. Think about it: do you want to take AP Biology while you’re in high school and have more time, or sit through Biology 101 in college when you can be taking an elective you’re actually interested in or good at while having a hundred other things going on? (Sorry bio kids, just an example)
3) Be present in the classroom Take school seriously! Don’t wait until you have to pay for your education to get things together like most of us do. Give yourself a head start! It can only help you sooner or later. That drama you’re worrying about? Not gonna matter in a few years. What you learn in high school? It’s setting you up for the future you want.
4) Visit college campuses You think you’d be able to know a place just by researching online or talking to friends, but you can’t really know until you actually visit yourself. Help yourself get a feel for what you want and need from a college before senior year to be able to pinpoint exactly that on your application, to know what you have to do in order to get there, and to make a good decision for an important part of your life.
5) Don’t let small things distract you from the future you want High school is just a small portion of your life. The drama will fade. There are times you will think the world is ending or that you just can’t pull through, but you’d be surprised to know how much you can take. Try to focus on what matters. We promise you’ll make it through this. Make sure it’s worth it.
7) But also, don’t take things too seriously Things not going as planned? Putting in your all but not getting the results you want? Shake it off and keep going. Don’t be too hard on yourself! You’re a kid! You’re human! It’s okay, and whether you believe it or not, things will work out.
8) Explore, and don’t feel like you have to stick with each thing Try out for a school activity. Not feeling it? Just stop right there, no problem—move on to something new. Keep trying, keep feeling, keep learning about what you enjoy and truly care about! Genuine interest is what you’re searching for. If there’s anything wrong in the process, it’s doing something half-hearted. Don’t do it because it looks good on college apps (because admissions will sniff you out) or because it’s cool (it’s not). Do it for you!
9) Stop comparing Comparison robs you of you, your life, your journey and accomplishments. Someone else’s life, someone else’s interests, social media, or formula for success is exactly that —theirs. It’s not necessarily going to work for you and wishing it would is a waste of time. Why would you want that anyway? As Dr. Seuss says, “you’re youer than you” and you have your own special qualities to celebrate. Focus on those and let the worries of others fade away.
10) Embrace YOU High school can be hard. To be honest, hardly anyone ever looks back at high school and wants to revisit it. It’s a time when we feel a little lost in the crowd and feel some pressures of having to fit into certain expectations and standards. But it can be easier for you. Love yourself fully—your being, your interests, your style, your personality—and own it. Easier said than done right, but it’s possible! You just have to want it for yourself. You deserve this time in your life. It’s about learning. It’s about being who you want to be. It’s about you.
