your music keeps me going each day

What song would you use to describe each Katie character and which one would you use to describe them all? - (anon)

This turned out to be a bit more difficult than I anticipated. I’m so picky when it comes to music and I wanted to consider legitimate reasons as to why these songs remind me of each character. For those interested, I did create a playlist on Spotify. You know your girl is extra af so it was necessary. Here we go!

Lena Luthor: Rise by Katy Perry

Originally posted by luthorial

I won’t just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can’t write my story
I’m beyond the archetype

I’m sorry but if those four sentences don’t describe Lena, tell me what does! Lena has survived so much and she keeps fighting every day. She knows that even though she is a Luthor by blood, she can rise beyond the dark reputation that comes with the name. There are people out there that doubt her because of her last name and there are others that seek to make her fail but she refuses to give them that satisfaction. It works!

Gloria Miller: Beast by Nico Vega

Stand tall for the people of America.
Stand tall for the man next door.
We are free in the land of America.
We ain’t goin’ down like this!
Come on now!

Sharing time: This is one of my favorite songs. Okay, I mostly just imagine a montage of Gloria kicking serious ass while this song plays (Someone wanna make that?). It’s loud and full of action and a bit of anger but mostly it just sends a message to stand up and fight for your country and for those that can’t fight for themselves. Be a hero. Be a Gloria!

anonymous asked:

Hi! Can I have a scenario of chan? When his s/o got a serious fight with him and he didn't know that his s/o have a heart disease. Make it fluff in the end. Tysm 😘

- you have a heart condition
- it’s nothing too serious, but it does keep you from doing certain activities and you do have to monitor your heart every now and then
- you’ve kept this a secret ever since you were young in fear of worrying others
- you just hate the thought of everyone treating you differently
- but the person you’re trying to hide it from the most is your boyfriend lee chan
- you’re afraid of his reaction and the last thing you want is for him to treat you like a baby because of it
- you know you shouldn’t assume things but just the tiny possibility of that keeps you from telling him all about your condition
- you managed to keep it a secret up until now, but it gets harder and harder to hide it now that you both moved in together and now that you require more follow-up appointments
- you really do believe chan has no clue about it
- but he’s a lot more observant than you think
- too observant to the point that he starts getting really suspicious…..
- you’re monitoring your heart rate as usual and only seconds after you’re done, you hear the door to your apartment suddenly open
- your panic rises as you hear your boyfriend’s footsteps getting louder, and his voice increasing in volume as he calls your name
- you quickly throw the monitor back into your bag and kick it under the bed right before the door swings open
- he asks “oh there you are!! didn’t you hear me calling you??”
- you quickly think of an excuse and say “o-oh! no i didn’t because….. i was listening to music!! this new group i’ve been following for a while now just debuted”
- chan asks “which group?” and you start sweating and go like “….you wouldn’t know, don’t worry about it”
- he doesn’t push it but his suspicion definitely increased….
- each day, you almost get caught monitoring your heart rate and it starts to stress you out
- you’re thinking of just telling him but your sad thoughts just keep holding you back
- sometimes you have to go see the doctor and when chan asks you where you’re going, you always make up some last minute excuse that keeps him wondering where you’re going
- sometimes you get phone calls from the doctor and you always tell him it’s your parents asking you if you’re all right
- he’s clearly never convinced by your excuses but chan chooses to ignore it because he trusts you
- but one day you realize you accidentally scheduled an appointment on the same day you were supposed to go out with your boyfriend
- when chan goes home, he’s super happy and excited for your date and you’re really nervous to tell him you have to cancel
- but you can’t miss this appointment….. it’s just a follow-up of your condition and all but it’s still really important for your health
- chan runs up to you and exclaims “(name)!! are you ready to go?”
- you look up at him and frown, and his smile fades in an instant and he asks “….what’s wrong?”
- you tell him “i….. can’t go out tonight….. i have someplace to be”
- chan asks “where?” and you say “uhhh this old friend of mine is in town and i have to go see them”
- he says “oh really? can i come along, i’d actually like to meet them” and you scream “NO” half a second after he told you
- you nervously laugh and say “my friend has slight social phobia…. they’re not really comfortable around new people”
- chan just nods his head and looks down, and your stomach drops when you see the sadness in his eyes
- you say “i’m sorry chan…. i promise i’ll make this up to you”
- when you walk past him, he asks “are you cheating on me?”
- your eyes widen at the question
- you turn to him and ask “what?”
- with his back still facing you, he repeats “are you cheating on me?”
- you say “chan, i’d never cheat on you—” and he turns around with the saddest expression you’ve ever seen him make
- he says “i never wanted to think this but these past few days, you’ve been so secretive i don’t know what else to think. am i a bad boyfriend? am i…… not good enough?”
- you run up to him and say “i’m not cheating on you, chan—it’s just—i can’t tell you”
- he asks “why not? how bad is this secret for you to keep it from me?”
- your phone suddenly starts ringing, and chan eyes your phone when you take it out of your bag
- and then he does something regretful
- he snatches the phone out of your hand
- you scream “CHAN GIVE THAT BACK TO ME” and he says “NO WAY I’M TALKING TO THIS GUY AND GIVING HIM A PIECE OF MY MIND—” but he looks at the caller id on your phone
- “hospital…?”
- you grab the phone out of his hand and answer it, confirming that yes, you’ll be there for your appointment
- when you hang up, you look at chan whose eyes are wide in shock
- he asks “why did the hospital call?” and you look down and sigh because this is it you’re finally going to tell him
- you say “chan, i have a heart disease”
- it’s quiet until he asks “why didn’t you tell me?”
- and you tell him everything; that you were afraid that he’d treat you differently, that he’d think of you differently because your heart is so “fragile”
- when you’re done explaining everything, you don’t even realize that tears formed in your eyes and you hastily wipe them away
- while you’re doing so, chan pulls you in for a hug
- he tells you “i’m sorry for doubting you” and you just smile as you hug him back and say “i’m sorry i didn’t tell you sooner”
- after making up, chan offers to walk you to the hospital and you accept
- when you both get there, chan is asked to wait outside the room for you
- he politely tells them he understands and tells you he’ll be sitting on the bench right outside the room
- when the nurse closes the door, she tells you “you’re lucky to have such a caring boyfriend”
- you smile and say “yeah… i am.”

thank you for your request!! ^^

How To Be a Heartbreaker- Jeffmads- Chapter One-

James stood up from the table, walking by Thomas and his friends, or at least attempted to. “Hey, baby boy, won’t you look my way?” Thomas called, laughing softly. James fought to keep the disgust and anger down as he turned to Thomas, forcing a bashful blush on his cheeks and a shy smile on his lips. “H-hi.” He stammered out, holding back his anger when he saw the classic arrogant smirk light up Thomas’ face. “Hmm, you’re a cute one, aren’t cha, Pretty Boy?” James actually blushed at the nickname, not used to compliments or terms of affection. Then he reminded himself who he was talking to, and why he was talking to him instead of pouring the contents of the tray over Thomas’ head. He took a deep breath and looked up at Thomas through his eyelashes, tilting his head. “T-thank you. I didn’t catch your name.” Thomas grinned, leaning back. “That’s cause I didn’t throw it. But I’m sure you’ve heard of me.”

“Thomas Jefferson, right?” James asked in a soft voice and Thomas nodded, grinning at him. “What’s your name, dollface?”  James was so close to saying ‘memefucker’ but instead just smiled and whispered. “J-james. James Madison?” He phrased it like a question and Thomas chuckled, walking forward and placing his fingers under his chin, staring down into his eyes. James jerked back, stumbling backwards and almost falling. A look of confusion arose on Thomas’ face as James quickly walked back to his table. “It was nice to meet you, Tommy.”  He called over his shoulder, running back to his table. Alex, who was still on John’s fucking lap, oh my god, PDA, was grinning at him, John chuckling. “That was …”

“Disgusting? Enraging? Homicidal thoughts bringing?” James managed to get out through gritted teeth, making Alex and John laugh. “You know the only time I’ve ever seen you this passionate is when you’re writing. Thomas is like writing to you.” John commented and James sent him a death glare. “I’m going to the library.” He decided, getting up, after he had finished his lunch of course, and heading to the library, scanning through book from book, just trying to distract himself from the racing thoughts that were dancing around in his head.  He frantically began to write in his journal, just wanting to get the thoughts down on paper, some sign that he wasn’t going crazy. He sighed, fidgeting in his seat as he stared at the writing on the page. It wasn’t good enough. He made a move to tear it out when a hand caught his wrist. “Everything is going to be important someday. You learn from your mistakes, don’t throw them away. Watch yourself improve.” The sound of the voice made James want to cringe but he was disgusted with himself when he found it comforting. It was Thomas. James looked up with a shy smile, running his fingers through his neat hair. “Hey.” He greeted and Thomas grinned, releasing his wrist and sitting next to him. “Hey.” Thomas repeated back, making James grin. “You skipped English but we got partnered up on an assignment, so here.” He handed James a slip of paper with his phone number written on it, a little heart next to it.  James chuckled, looking down at the slip of paper as he put it in his pocket. This was going to be so easy.  

“Hey, want to grab a slushie with me?” Thomas questioned with an almost nervous smile. But James knew that Thomas was never nervous, so he told himself it was a trick of the light. James nodded. “Sadly I chose to take the bus today, so can you drive me, Tommy?” Thomas beamed at the nickname and nodded. “We’ll just skip the rest of the day.” James’ eyes widened. Yeah he skipped one class like every month at most but to skip a whole day? Thomas chuckled, seeing how nervous James was and smiling.

“You’re so cute.” He cooed, ruffling his hair playfully and a genuine laugh slipped out of James’ lips before he could stop it. It’s been awhile since he laughed like that. It felt nice. Thomas slipped his hand into James and without thinking James pulled his hand away, laughing nervously. “Sorry. I’m not used to people flirting with me.”

Thomas chuckled. “That wasn’t me flirting. I’ll show you what actual flirting is later, sweetheart.” He said with a wink, linking their arms together and leading him outside to his car. James silently got into the passenger seat, smiling faintly at Thomas before looking out the window to admire the scenery going by.  After ten minutes Thomas pulled into 7/11 parking lot, pulling into a parking space and parking. He got out of the car, waiting for James before heading inside it with him. “Cherry or coke slushie?” He asked and James chuckled. “Cherry, duh.” James responded, making Thomas grin back. “My kind of man.” He replied, filling two medium slushies up with cherry flavor. He walked back to the cashier and paid for them both before James could even argue. Thomas lead him back to the car, hopping on the hood of the car and motioning for James to do the same. For a moment there was silence- Other than the occasional slurping noise and Thomas smiled at the peace. Then he decided to break it.  “So you’re on the debate team with me, right? You’re actually really good, even if you are a tad bit shy, it all seems to disappear when you’re debating.” Thomas commented offhandedly and James couldn’t stop himself from smiling. “Yeah, well, debating is a way I lose myself. Become someone else. A stronger me. Same thing with writing.” James admitted and Thomas nodded. “But what are you escaping?” Thomas challenged and James chuckled. “That’s for me to know. “

“And me to find out.” Thomas countered, making James smile and laugh. “Keep telling yourself that.” They spent hours talking, going back in to buy more slushies and candy, then showing each other their favorite music, books, complaining about teachers. When the school day would’ve been over they were still talking, stopping when James checked the time. “I should be heading home.” James said softly and Thomas nodded. “I’ll drive you back, what’s your address?”  James gave it to him and Thomas typed it into his phone, before they both climbed into the car, Thomas starting to drive again. When he reached his home, Thomas hesitated. “Text me so we can talk about the project. Also, there’s a party at my house tomorrow. I want you to come.” Thomas said, frowning when James opened his mouth to protest. “You don’t have a say in the matter. I’ll text you the info later.” He drove off and James sighed, walking back into his house and throwing his book bag onto the ground. As usual both his parents were busy working. He took the slip of paper out of his bag and added Thomas to his contacts, sending a simple text.

‘Hi.’

Thomas responded quickly, telling him what the project was, pretty much they just had to write a love story together, and then sending him information about the party. James walked up the stairs, dragging his feet behind him as he texted back and forth with Thomas, starting to regret agreeing to do this. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to hurt Thomas anymore. Oh no, he still wanted to see Thomas crash and burn. But he wasn’t sure who was gonna slip up first. Thomas or him.

💘 💘 JAMES PAUL MCCARTNEY 💘 💘

♊️ June 18, 1942 ♊️  

75 years ago on this very day, one of the four mysterious Liverpool legends was born. A lad called by his middle name, not his first to avoid family confusion, a quirk that showed everyone from the beginning that he was to be no ordinary boy. A love of music sparked his heart from early on, a passion that would forever change not only his life, but the life of his future bandmates and the world as we know it. One summer afternoon in 1957, he met his best friend, his partner in crime, another teenage Liverpool hooligan named John Lennon, and together, the two of them would write songs that would cement them in history as the best songwriters who ever lived. This boy and his band would go on to rock the world a million times over and will never cease to steal the hearts of his fans everywhere. He is everything the perfect man is to be: handsome, charming, intelligent, caring, sweet, and incredibly loving among many of his other admirable qualities. He is an amazing husband and father, and the coolest grandfather ever to live! Animal rights activist, nature activist, charitable humanist, beliefs that make him an inspiration to us to make our earth a better place. His music picks us up, strengthens us, and gives us will to live when we come upon our hardest times. He is loved by so very many of us and he continues to make my every day happy and whole. Who is this very man we speak of? It is none other than the one, the only, the fabulous PAUL McCARTNEY!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL!!! On your birthday last year, I wished that I would get tickets to your one and only show in Ontario and literally 2 days later, my wish came true! One of my only dreams in life was to see you in concert at least once and my dream came true last July 21st. You’ll never know how much it made my soul fly to see you on that stage. You make me so happy to be alive and breathing on this earth just for the sake of knowing that you’re on it too! Your music inspires me each and everyday to keep practicing my skills because maybe one day, I can change the lives of others with my music just as you did to me. As my wish came true last year, I’ll make another one for old time’s sake: this year, I’m going to wish that you come back to Canada again so I can see you once more! Happs my man, I hope your birthday is the best yet with many more to come. xxx 💗 💖 💘 💗 💖 💘 💗 💖 💘   

Dear Freddie,


On this day, you were born. This day is important to me for just that reason. Your music has changed my life. Your songs inspire me every time I listen to them. The lyrics you write mean so much to me and help me make it through each long day. When nobody is there for me, I always have your music. Your songs are there to cheer me up or to tell me I need to believe in myself and keep going. I can always count on your brilliance to make my day better. With just one note, I can be moved to tears by your voice. The lyrics to your songs mean more because of your amazing voice. But it’s not only your music that has helped me. You’re personality has taught me a lot. You’ve showed me to live my life however I want and to have that “I don’t give a fuck” attitude. You kept on doing what you wanted even when the media tried to tear you down. I realized that I can’t let others tell me how to live my life. I’ve learned from you that I need to just do what I love no matter what others say. Thank you, Freddie, for giving this world music that can change a person’s life. Thank you for letting us know that we should never let anyone change us. And thank you for just doing what you love because you have had such a large impact on many people’s lives including my own. I love you, my dear Freddie. Happy birthday!

WHY YOU SHOULD GO TO ROME WITH ME

PORQUÉ DEBERÍAS IR A ROMA CONMIGO:

Imaginate esto: las dos es una ciudad hermosa, cada día conociendo algo diferente con gente nueva de todo el mundo. Cada día viviendo experiencias nuevas. Teniéndote a mi lado siempre. CENAS ES ROMA. Literalmente no creo que pueda explicar con palabras lo hermoso que sería cenar en Roma contigo y después caminar por la ciudad a media noche, encontrándonos de todo. A parejas enamoradas, a personas tocando música a la luz de la luna, a personas divirtiéndose como nunca. Cada día comer en un lugar diferente, probar de tus labios el café por la mañana y después en la noche el vino para así iniciarla. Los fines de semana viajes a ciudades nuevas contigo de compañía, tenerte más de 10 días en donde podría besar tus labios cada vez que quisiera. Ir a Florencia. Que me cuentes todo, y yo contarte todo hasta hartarnos de las dos. Llevarte a galerías, hacerte serenatas italianas. Puedo seguir escribiendo pero nunca terminaría.


WHY YOU SHOULD GO TO ROME WITH ME:

Imagine this: the two of us in a beautiful city, everyday discovering new things with new people from all around the world. Everyday living new experiences. Always having you by my side. DINNERS IN ROME. I literally can’t explain with words how beautiful it would be to have dinner with you in Rome and then have a midnight walk around the city, seeing everything. Couples in love, people playing music by the moon light, people having fun like never before. Each day, eat in a different place, in the morning taste the coffee from your lips and then tasting the wine to start the night. travel on the weekends with you as my company, having you more than 10 days where I could kiss your lips every time I would want to. Go to Florence.You telling me everything while I tell you everything till we get bored of each other. Take you out to galleries, give you italian serenades. I could keep writing but I’ll never end

31 things I learned in the first 31 days of 2016

1. Home is not a place, but the people you surround yourself with. 
Having spent the first seconds of 2016 in New York with my best friend and her family, the year started out great. I wasn’t physically at home, yet I had never felt so at home in my life. When the ball dropped and everyone’s glasses clinked together in celebration, I found myself delighted to be a part of not one, but two families. I was home.

2. Facetiming your dog really does brighten your day.

3. There’s something about road tripping with your best friend with music blaring as loud as it goes, that makes you forget everything you’ve ever worried about. 
These are the times you’ll remember. You and your bff. Sitting in the backseat of the car, singing Jonas Brothers 2007 top hits at the top of your lungs. These are the moments. You won’t remember tripping on that ice patch in front of a group of teenagers walking back from class. You won’t remember how you were forced to sit alone at lunch one day and spent the entirety of it feeling your face burn hotter than the sun. You wont remember any of it, so stop worrying, and start living.

4. Three isn’t a crowd when you surround yourself with the right people.

5. Feel everything. There’s a difference between living and existing. 
Feel hurt. Feel ache. Feel butterflies in your stomach before entering the busy cafeteria because your anxiety doesn’t ever leave you alone. Feel your skin burning when you look like crap in public and a group of good looking people stare you down. Feel brand new again when you go outside and the sun kisses your cheeks for the first time in days. Feel everything- good or bad. It’s the only way you’ll exist in this world. (And hey, if you’re like me, you’ll get some great writing out of it too).

6. You’ll experience serendipitous encounters of joy when you stop searching for them.

7. Pain is good for you.
If we didn’t experience hurt, we wouldn’t know the capacity of our strength. You live and you learn and you grow, and only through pain do you build yourself up enough to see what you’re really capable of handling. Everybody in the world is a little bit broken, one way or another- it’s how the light gets in.

8. Just because you’d take a bullet for someone, doesn’t mean they’d do the same for you.

9. You’ll find little parts of your family in everywhere you go and everything you do.
When you’re walking through Kroger and you’re in a hurry and you can’t find the olives for the life of you, there’s no doubt you’ll think of your mom. You’ll feel frustrated and nostalgic all at once because you know if she was here she’d laugh and whisper “isle three” and your search would be over. When I’m walking through the mall, minding my own business, and develop a headache because two siblings won’t stop screaming at each other, I’ll think of my siblings, and I’ll probably smile.

10. It’s more than okay to be yourself; you don’t owe anybody an explanation for who you are.

11. You have to stop making excuses for people that continue to hurt you.
Love will make you do crazy things. Your heart will spend every day fighting your head, and it’ll leave you in shambles with nothing but confusion. When the person you love puts you on a shelf for weeks or even months and only talks to you when they decide it’s convenient for them, you HAVE to walk away. You’re afraid because this feeling is so real and so raw and you’re terrified that you’ll never feel it again but you WILL. It’ll be the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do in your life and it’ll hurt like hell but toxic relationships are a drug and you deserve better than to be hooked on someone who hurts you 90% of the time; don’t hang on for that last 10%, you deserve more. Walk away, your heart will break but it’ll heal; it always heals.

12. Sometimes the best cure to a bad day is a good cry.

13. You’ll get closer to your little sister, the further away you are from her.
Since the day I moved into college I’ve missed my little sister, but not the way I do now. When the new year rolled around and it was time for me to move back into school, I think it hit me that I’ve only really spent maybe 10 days out of the last five months with her. January has brought me a lot of loneliness and heartache, and I miss her curative laugh. Even though she’s a whole six years younger than me, she teaches me things about myself that I never knew I needed. In the time we spend apart, I feel closer to her than I ever have before.

14. Catching up with friends you haven’t talked to in forever is good for the soul.

15. Sometimes being selfish is the best thing for you. 
The most important thing I’ve learned is that there’s a difference between being selfish because you don’t care about anyone but yourself, and being selfish because you need to love yourself for a change, too. While you’re so busy making sure everybody else is alright, you just might be crumbling. Cancel your plans with your friends for a day if you have to. Lie in your bed all day eating chocolate and reading a book; you don’t always have to go out and please somebody; let yourself come first.

16. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t have an occasional breakdown. There’s no shame in crying in public.

17. Saying goodbye to someone you care about never gets easier, no matter how many times you do it, and that’s perfectly okay. 
As I boarded my flight back home after spending a week with my best friend, my heart was heavier than it had been in months. You’d think I’d be a pro at saying goodbye to her by now, as it’s something I’ve done a number of times before. Yet, I still felt broken. I was 32,000 feet up in the air and only 32 seconds away from tears streaming down my face when I realized that it was okay to feel like this. Of course it’s going to hurt if it means something to you. And she does; she means the world to me.

18. Don’t let the opinions and judgements of others lead you astray from who you are.

19. Occasional “treat yourself” days are a must. 
I’m a broke college student, so naturally I’m as cheap as they come; I typically won’t spend more than $10 on an article of clothing, and even that is a stretch for me. Thrift stores are my best friend. Sometimes though, shopping is therapeutic. Spend a little extra money on yourself; get your nails done, buy yourself a large milkshake instead of a small. Spend $30 once a while to go see your favorite band play, they’ll mend every scar on your heart and leave you smiling for days. It’s the little things in your everyday life that make all the difference in the world. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but it can buy memories, and those are one in the same if you ask me.

20. Saying “Hi” when you pass the people who have hurt you makes you feel powerful and at peace.

21. Take pictures of EVERYTHING. Memories are the most important thing you’ll ever have and are the only thing you’re guaranteed to never lose. 
I used to get self conscious when pursing my love of photography in public. People would stare at me like I was crazy for taking a picture of my brand new fancy shoes. Try not to care what the people in the booth across from you think if you take a selfie with your sister at dinner, do it if it makes you happy; freeze the moment in time so you can remember it for the rest of your life. Document everything. I never want to forget these moments, even if they’re something as small at walking to the park with my dog. Life is short; each and every day is all at once, a mixture of beauty, cruelty, and pleasure, and pictures are proof that you survived each and every one of them.

22. Don’t let the possibility of failure keep you from having a blast.

23. Music has a way of unclogging your thought clouded head. 
Having yet another rough day, my friends and I decided, spontaneously, to go to a free concert held on campus. I didn’t know a single word to a single song but there was something about the sweaty bass and the lead singer’s beach blonde perfect hair that made me feel alive in my own skin for the first time in forever. Music has a way of making you feel infinite during the times when you need it the most.

24. Distraction is the best medicine for heartbreak. Go out and explore the world and you’re guaranteed to fall in love all over again.

25. Talking to your mom really does make everything better for the time being. 
I was sitting in my dorm after having a rather shitty day, and decided to call my mom, just to catch up. As soon as she picked up and I heard the excitement in her voice from hearing mine, I started bawling. There was zero control over my tears as they forced their way down my cheeks. I told my mom everything, and even though we’re miles apart, I felt as if we were together, and somehow, she had made everything more than okay again. You never outgrow your mom.

26. As annoying as little siblings are, they’re a blessing.

27. Writing is one of the most therapeutic things you can do.
As a writing major, I’ve known forever that writing can be remedial. This year, my new year’s resolution was to write a journal entry at least once a day. I’ve made it a habit of mine to make sure I never leave my dorm without my journal, since I never know when a moment of inspiration might strike. As I’ve made it very clear throughout this post, this month was not an easy one for me. It really is amazing how much better I feel after jotting down every emotion I feel, down to the very core of my mind. When you’re not having a good day, pouring yourself into your writing and being as raw as you possibly can, drains all of the pain. All of the hurt that you have bottled up, is now out in the open, plastered to a page instead of etched on your heart, and trust me, it’s one of the most refreshing things you’ll ever feel.

28. There’s something about walking to class in the pouring rain with your headphones blaring the words you’re too afraid to say aloud, that makes you feel alive.

29. In time your heart will begin to conform to its new reality. 
This may sound cliché but it’s something I’ve experienced recently. One week your heart is completely shattered and the next week you can feel it becoming whole again. Humans are meant to feel everything, good or bad, and after feeling comes accepting your fate. It’s been about three weeks since an important part of my world came crashing down and after surrounding myself with loving friends and family, the cliché has been proven; I can feel the broken pieces inside of me starting to stick together again.

30. Discovering new music never gets less exciting.

31. The January Blues most definitely exist. 
Maybe it’s walking to class everyday in freezing cold temperatures when I’d rather be sleeping. Maybe it’s because I stay up until 2am studying biology terms and will probably still end up failing the test because I’m exhausted. Or maybe it’s because I’m missing my mom’s home cooked meals when I’m tired of eating cafeteria slop for the millionth day in a row. I don’t know what it is, but I’m feeling depressed. The sun has only really been out 12 days out of the 31 and I don’t think I can take another day of seeing nothing but grey and white outside my window. It’s nothing serious, January sucks the life out of everyone.

Heart Skipped A Beat (Part 2) - Fanfic

Hey guys, I just wanted to thank you for all the compliments that the first part received, that just make me feel so happy. Also put a lot of responsibility on me to write chapter two, so I’m sorry if I let you down, i’m just beginning and I will get better on it. Have a nice time reading the fic ;)

CHAPTER 2

RAE’S POV

DEAR DIARY

Things with Liam haven’t been the same since that day on the pub. Now he just ignores me. Every time I see him in group therapy or on the street he just wave at me. No conversations. No hugs. No nothing. I really hate this! But, on the other hand, things with Finn are great. He is a really nice friend! We talk about our romantic problems almost every day, and I always find out something new about him. He is a really nice guy and he is helping me a lot. We’re there for each other, that it’s what I most love about our new recent friendship.

He suggested that we unite to make jealous on Liam, but I don’t know. Isn't that too much cliché? I really don’t know what to think and I just can’t talk about this with Kester, because he’s gonna star to make all those questions that I would never have a straight answer for.

Life is difficult Diary, but let’s be honest, if everything supposed to be easy, we would be so bored so easily.

***

Sometimes I like to come to the park alone and just look to the wind moving the trees and hear the birds singing, it’s so calm, so quite! When I’m here I’m able of organizing my thoughts and my feelings and make some decisions. They aren't all good though, just like when I decided that I was an embarrassment to my mum and friends, that my death wouldn't make a difference in anyone’s lives. Of course I was wrong, but that is the thing about feelings, sometimes they are not right or good.

-Hey, Rae Rae!

FUCKING JESUS, IT’S LIAM!

-Hello, stranger!

Cold and quick, good one Rae!

-Come on, don’t do this! I miss our time together, but every time that I see you, you are with that guy from the pub.

Is he jealous?

-Who? Finn?

-Yeah, if that is his name!

- Don’t be a dick Liam, Finn and I are just friends.

- Really?

- Yes!

- Well, good to know!

Good to know? Do you think you are my FUCKING OWNER?

-But I was thinking, he is really cute right? Maybe I could just try something with him…

Okay, so I think that I’ve just accepted Finn’s offer of making Liam jealous! This will be so fun!

-What? So you like this guy?

-Why do you care Liam? As my friend you should just support me!

-You know what? You’re right! Go ahead and be with this guy, but just don’t come cry on my shoulders when he dump you for some ordinary blond dumb girl!

And then he just left! He was so pissed! He was jealous! Finn’s plane was working before it even begin. I need to go home and call him to tell the news!

***

- Hey, girl! How are you?

- Hi, Finnley! I’m fine and you? I have big news!

- I’m fine too! What’s the news?

- I decided to accept your offer of making jealous on Liam! And I already started, and he is pissed! Thank you so much, this was such a great idea!

- Oh… That is great Rae! Can’t wait to help you! So, what you think about me and you meeting in the pub tomorrow for a bear and talk?

- That sounds fantastic! It’s a date! I mean, a fake one!

- Yeah, it’s a date!

***

I don’t know why, but I was nervous waiting for Finn at the pub. Like I was anxious or something, I don’t know… This is so weird, because he is just a mate, nothing more, right? Right! Don’t even start with this Rae, you need to focus on Liam!

I was so distract that I got scared when I heard someone talking near my ear.

-I heard that here in this pub they play the best songs. Is that true girl?

God! It was Finn! He was so handsome with that leather jacket. I could just kiss him right here and now! NO RAE! FOCUS ON LIAM!

- God Finn! What a fright!

- Sorry, I was just trying to mess with you, I just didn’t know I would succeed so much!

- You little piece of shit!

- Hey why do you like to swear at me so much? You are starting to hurt my feelings Miss Earl!

- Seriously? I’m so sorry Mister Nelson!

- I will forgive you just this time, don’t expect so much generosity of the next time.

- Oh yeah? Really? What will you do on the next time?

- Wait and see Rae, just wait and see.

- I count with that Finn!

And then this really sex and romantic mood hang in the air and we just couldn't stop staring at each other. God, what was I doing? I don’t love Finn, I love Liam. That’s why I’m here for God’s sake! I’m crazy! That’s the only explanation! I need to break the mood. I need to say something really stupid and funny.

-So, have you heard the new Babylon Zoo song? It’s amazing!

-Really? Do you like Babylon Zoo?

-Of course! My dream is come to a concert of them and just hug and kiss the singer and cry during the song. That is how much I’m a fan of them.

- Oh God, I actually had believed in you.

- Really? And I thought that you knew me well, Nelson kid!

- Nelson kid? A new nickname now?

- You know, just when you say a stupid thing!

- Stupid thing? Let’s make a deal, you come tomorrow to my house and listen to the new Babylon Zoo song and tell me if that is a crappy thing, if you don’t like of it I will buy to you the new Weezer album, but if you just admit that the song is good, you will by me one.

- Okay, it’s a deal! But it can’t be tomorrow, I already combined to go out with Chloe!

- No problems, we rescheduled to another day! But we will make this and I will show to you that I have a better knowledge about music.

- In your dreams Finnley… In your dreams!

We keep teasing each other and talking for hours. It was such a funny night. Finn and I were really close and those awkward moments keep happening during that time, but he or me always changed the subject. It was easier when the gang arrived, that way we weren't able of concentrate all the attention on each other.

When I got home my mum told me that Liam have called. So my plan was working pretty well, but the question is: Do I still want this? Run after a guy that didn't appreciate me of the first time and played with my feelings during months? A guy who had changed so much that I barely recognized? God my feelings are a mess. It’s like I never was able of seem all of  the shitty things that Liam had already made for me, and now, everything it’s appearing in my mind like a movie. I need to think straight! I need Kester and his complicated questions.

Taylor,

Growing up in this day and age is truly a battle. People are cruel and mean and take all of their frustrations out on others. Hatred and insecurity cloud people’s minds and sometimes even their hearts and make people like me’s lives difficult and sad. I feel like I’m fighting a never-ending war. A continuous cycle of getting through each and every terrible day. Only a little bit further. Keep going. One day these troubles will feel like nothing. But I’ve been feeling like this for so long and I just want the happiness to come. I feel so lost and hopeless. The only light I’ve been able to find is in you. In your music. In your kindness and passion and caring ways. Please never change. You make me feel like I have someone to turn to, to rely on, even if you don’t even know it. I will never be able to put into words how thankful I am for that. I will never stop supporting you, and I will always have your back. I hope your life is filled with sunshine and love and huge hugs. Wish I could give you one.

Love you forever,
Meghan
