He cleans up after himself. He cleans up the planet. He is a role model for young men. He is rigorously honest and fiercely optimistic.

He holds himself accountable. He knows what he feels. He knows how to cry and he lets it go. He knows how to rage without hurting others. He knows how to fear and how to keep moving. He seeks self-mastery.

He has let go of childish shame. He feels guilty when he's done something wrong. He is kind to men, kind to women, kind to children. He teaches others how to be kind. He says he's sorry.

He stopped blaming women or his parents or men for his pain years ago. He stopped letting his defenses ruin his relationships. He stopped letting his penis run his life. He has enough self-respect to tell the truth. He creates intimacy and trust with his actions. He has men that he trusts and that he turns to for support. He knows how to roll with it. He knows how to make it happen. He is disciplined when he needs to be. He is flexible when he needs to be. He knows how to listen from the core of his being.

He's not afraid to get dirty. He's ready to confront his own limitations. He has high expectations for himself and for those he connects with. He looks for ways to serve others. He knows he is an individual. He knows that we are all one. He knows he is an animal and a part of nature. He knows his spirit and his connection to something greater.

He knows that the future generations are watching his actions. He builds communities where people are respected and valued. He takes responsibility for himself and is also willing to be his brother's keeper.

He knows his higher purpose. He loves with fierceness. He laughs with abandon, because he gets the joke.

This is the Mature Masculine - the New Warrior - a re-definition of masculinity for the 21st century. By no means is this list complete. You are welcome to come and add your gifts to this community.

Source: vk/lastromanovs. Nicholas called himself a simple, common man who felt unable to fulfill the responsibility being given to him at the young age of 26. “The daily work of a monarch he found intolerably boring. He could not stand listening long or seriously to ministers’ reports, or reading them.” Written by Kerensky, the leader of the government which took over from the Tsar in 1917, in his memoirs in 1934. — “His ancestors did not pass on to him one quality which would have made him capable of governing an empire.” Written by Trotsky, one of the leaders of the revolutionaries who opposed the Tsar, in 1932. — “Nicholas II was not fit to run a village post office.” Said by an unknown cabinet minister. — “He never had an opinion of his own … always agreeing with the judgement of the last person he spoke to.” By Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich.
Nicholas was “kind to those around him and deeply religious. … He believed wholeheartedly in autocracy. … He genuinely wanted to bring happiness and prosperity to his people.” — “He has a quick mind and learns easily. In this respect he is far superior to his father.” Sergei Witte, chief minister under Nicholas, in his memoirs. Even though he disliked the Tsar, he said this of Nicholas. — “He kept saying … that he was wholly unfit to reign … And yet Nicky’s unfitness was by no means his fault. He had intelligence, he had faith and courage and he was wholly ignorant about governmental matters. Nicky had been trained as a soldier. He should have been taught statesmanship, and he was not.” From the diary of the Tsar’s sister, the Grand Duchess Olga. — “Nicholas was not a stupid man … The problems Russia faced were very great … Nicholas II loved his country and served it loyally and to the best of his ability. He had not sought power … He was very kind, sensitive, generous. … [The situation] would probably have destroyed any man who sat on the throne.” — Dominic Lieven, 1994.

So we are together going to 2019, when we started our journey we never thought, I mean I never thought I will come this far with this guys 🤪
.
.
To be true initially I was just playing around, was never focused to have a life long relationship. I don’t know why my it was young stud me 🤣
.
.
I never told him this before, I am sure once he will read this. He will probably kill me. But to be true I always heard about guys being “never in serious in relationship”.
.
And I had same expectations from him as well, and also the way his character was there in college was too attractive like I always appreciated the way he never used to run behind girls ! Hard to find such guys who are in their own swag. And he was the one with his swag. To be true he thought that I never knew that he was falling for me 🤣 but “jaal to mene bichaya tha” 🤪
.
.
Obviously he was good at athletics, guitar v baja leta tha, andho me kana raja wali body (because he had abs) n attitude tha. .
.
And this attracted me to him 😀 made him to run behind me. Also he was bad at studies which he improved after getting into relationships because may be “I was strict than his parents about his marks 🤣” .
.
Ultimate dhamki used to be “agar gande marks aye to I will leave you “ n he worked hard offcourse cheated hard as well 🤣 .
.
Even after all this I wasn’t sure if this relationship was going to exist after college, and surprisingly this guy wasn’t like other guys, he was literally everywhere with me. He was serious about relationship from day 1. This surprises me always, because it’s hard to find such guys ! And this made me to settle down with him. My mom never liked any guy but surprisingly she never said anything about this guy. 😁 .
.
Life is good when you have right partner, No No it doesn’t mean we don’t fight. We surely do, but this guy is still so attractive to me or may be I can say more attractive to me than ever before. Love doesn’t decrease with time it actually increases 💝 And now he cares more n more about it, I can talk about him forever( may be today we are going to have fight🤪) but .
.
Ladies and gentlemen, “A good relationship will always help you to grow”

He has been having hearing issues for the past 9 years. He was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma for his right ear. This is when a benign tumor develops on the auditory/vestibular cochlear nerve and the pressure it causes on the nerve can result in hearing loss. Since than he has seen 4 ENT specialists and they all said nothing can be done. 5 years later he wanted to see how technology has changed and if there was something that can help him. When I first seen him, he told me all he wanted was to hear his wife again. I let him try on some of the latest technology out there and he was blown away by how much better he was able to hear. Not only that, he can hear his wife again which is all that mattered to him. A happy wife really is a happy life! This is him and I having lunch at one of the Chinese restaurants he's been telling me to try. Might I add, after I gave him the best deal out there. He told me his wife won the lottery getting 5 / 6 numbers from lotto 647 and they are taking home 90k in cash lol! Yet he was still asking me for a better deal! Haha! I guess that's why rich people stay rich! They know how to keep their $$. It's the holidays! It's a time for giving anyways! But he did however end up paying for my meal. Haha 😂 oh and that Chinese food was so good!! Ming's Chinese!! ftw #awesomeclients #successstory #happywifehappylife #changinglives #myjob #happyholidays 👂👍

Smiling at people for no reason. Waving at strangers, on the sidewalk and while passing them on the road. Smiling and laughing at, well, nothing at all really. All of the behaviors that will get you more free dessert from charmed waitresses at local diners than you would believe.

That was my grandpa, W.T. aka "Dub". He was a good man, friendly and sweet to everyone he encountered, and never needed a reason to be that way.

He left us late Sunday night, after a long battle with a cruel disease, one that robs people of their memory, their mobility, and eventually their life. But thankfully for us, he never seemed to forget who we are and what we mean to him.

Before he passed, on Thanksgiving, he came to one last time with a burst of energy, right before I had to leave my grandparents house, confident I may never see him wake again. He smiled and laughed as his family surrounded him (including my uncle's Shelty that gave him a solid lick to the face, bringing more laughs.) He gestured wildly toward the ceiling and the window, using his limited speech excitedly, as if to tell us about a wild journey he had gone on while sleeping.

I played a song from George Jones called "White Lightning". He was one of his favorite artists - we listened to him on one of a cassette he had in the red truck he dropped me off and picked me up in from school every day until I could drive. I patted his arm and sang along like a fool, less interested in looking cool than activating him and making him smile and laugh, the way he always did for me. Toward the end of the song, though he was difficult to understand, I saw his legs kicking and heard him mumble along a bit to the chorus, matching the refrain one good time "shheewwww... White lightning!" It would be the last courtesy from a relentlessly courteous man - to give his grandson one last memory of him that will always make me smile through the tears.

My heart is broken to lose him, but swelling with pride for the man I knew him to be.

Grandpa, I love you - and though you were never a big drinker, I hope you're enjoying some White Lightning in the sky with your brothers about now.

Since RJ started school I was really scared that he would be behind because he didn't go to a traditional preschool, he kept saying how school is boring and he didn't want to go. Well over the last month we have a turn in his attitude towards school. He wants to go, its not boring anymore and I can see him advancing and quickly. Today I got his progress report and he has definitely improved and is well on his way. He got 5 out of 5 on his site words for the week and he is Star of the Week when they go back to school. Most will say this is all normal but for my son it wasn't but he is showing that he can do all things. I'm so proud and excited for my son and the growth he is showing daily. P.s. he said he was rich in his outfit today and he needs more. #thehyltons #randociouslife #motherandson #myheartbeat #loveofmylife #adidas

1. Mang Kodo
Looks like a weak old man, quiet and weird but hey! He's a great chef, dude. Enak tenan masakannya euy + he's so talk-active. Gaul euy dia. It's really fun to have a chit chat with him and guess what? He has been invited a couple times to Trisakti University and he told us that he walked from Baduy to Trisakti. How long it takes? 2-3 days. Wow! Udah tau kota, udah punya Hp doi. He asked my number and taraaa doi WhatsApp gue ngucapin "Selamat Pagi" dan abis itu gue bales gak deliv wkwk cause I know, doi harus menempuh 2 jam untuk dapet sinyal. Kalo gue disana, gue harus menempuh 6 jam dulu buat dapet sinyal. (kaki kita beda 😭)
.
2. Nadi
My favorite handsome boy. His eyes full of hope and faith. He's smart, cute & malu gemesin gitu. Bilangnya umurnya 10 tahun padahal udah 14 tahun, kurang ajar. Manis sih, jadi gue gabisa marah wkwk. He's so easy-going and friendly.
.
3. Mang Yadi
He's soooo quiet and prude. But I can see he's so kind and generous. Kena doi kita suruh foto gokil wkwk he keeps his pure smile. His eyes show his kindness.

4. Kalcim
A 10 years old boy. He's so fast and so strong. My superhero boy! Udah punya pacar doi woooy. Diajak ngobrol sama cewek gamau, kayaknya sih mau jaga perasaan pacarnya = setia. Ntap. He's such a hard-worker boy. I know he will become one of the greatest person in the future. I am really proud of him.
.
So, don't be scared of them.
It's been such a big pleasure to spend a whole day with them.

After ignoring Ryan the whole day yesterday I decided to do the same today.
I was standing by my locker taking out my books as he came towards me. "Hey babe." He smiled and tried to kiss my cheek but I turned away. "Again? Really?" He asked. I didn't say a word. "Y/n what's wrong? Why you not talking to me, I mean I haven't seen you the whole summer and now you came back, I wanna be with you and you just push me off..." He said. "Yup." I said. "Did something happen? Or did someone hurt you? If it's so tell me I'll beat his ass!" He added. Is he serious? Did he just really asked that? Alright I'm done. "You serious? You just asked me if someone hurt me?? Hah...why don't you ask yourself?" I told him and he finally got it. "Y/n...you still mad at me for this one stupid mistake?" He asked. "I already told you that I regret it and I apologized to you. I'm trying to be a good boyfriend. But you won't let me be." He added. Alright enough. I slammed the door of my locker so loud everyone in the hallway turned to us. "A good boyfriend you say? You trying to be a good boyfriend? Would a good boyfriend ignore his girl? Would a good boyfriend cheat on his girl twice? Would a good boyfriend get so drunk that he starts to push his girl against the wall so hard that she would bleed on the head? No he wouldn't!! If you'd be a good boyfriend you'd never think of things like that!!" I shouted. "Y/n calm down everyone's looking..." He whispered. "No I'll not calm the fuck down! I'm done with all that I already told you! I can't take this shit anymore!!" I told him. Everyone in the hallway was standing there watching us and listening to what I said, some of them were shocked but at this moment I didn't care. "Ryan I wanna break up..." I breathed out and everyone gasped. His eyes widen. "What?" He gasped. "Yes...I don't wanna be your girl anymore. I'm done with you and all your shit, with your lies, your games just everything! I don't wanna do this anymore, I'm done got it?!" I shouted. (More in the comments)

The Mad Hatter stood up and ran and grab two fruits. "What are those?" I asked. "I'm afraid I have no idea." He answered. He got up on to the table. "Hey! We weren't done having our tea!" He bend down and tapped me on the nose. "Watch and learn child. Watch and learn. I slumped on my tuft of air, and watched him play his nonsense games. He tried balancing the two fruits on top of each other, but failed. "Just one second..." He muttered. He was dry close until one of them toppled over and landed in my lap. "Oh my, don't touch." He quickly grabbed out of my hand. He continued trying to balance them, but just couldn't. "Could you please stop? You're not going to get them to balance, and I would like to enjoy my tea and cookies without staring at someone's foot." He leaned down showing me the fruit he balanced. "What was that, my dear?" He smiled. "Oh nothing." I crossed my arms. The hare and mouse clapped, while he got off the table and bow. "What a wonderful trick." The hare said. "Made me less sleepy," the mouse yawned. "Thank you, thank you." I looked at him surprised. "Have I gone mad?" He turned around and looked at me. Bending down on one knee, he looked up at me and said, "Yes, but let me tell you something; The best people usually are." Hope you guys enjoyed 💋

Birth date : nineteen years BG
Age : nineteen
Location : Northern Air Temple (monastery)
Particularities : hides his big ears with his messy brown hair, and is known to be the funniest trouble maker ever known. But his goofiness will cause his ignorance, which is why he still isn’t tattooed at the age of nineteen.
⠀⠀
The average young benders are tattooed at fifteen or sixteen, after acquiring all thirty six techniques of air bending.
Aang the trouble maker, on the top of his nineteenth year has only reached the seventeenth one, which is considered a shame for his Elders.
They have struggled to make him learn, with any way ! He has changed masters multiple times but was judged too lazy and empty headed, monks despise him with a very funny and paternal way.
They all know very well his marauds and pranks, and cannot help but laughing at them. He is encouraged in his tricks by all his dear friends that surround him, including his long time best friend Hesuko.
⠀⠀
Although he is judged poorly skilled in the practice of air bending, he has an amazing gift when it comes to Spiritual Meditation.
He has amazed all of his mentors when he entered the Spirit World at the young age of eleven.
This remarquable skill will be the reason why all the Old Monks will persevere in teaching the young boy and NEVER underestimate his abilities.
At his eighteen’s autumn, he is excited when he hears that he and all his friends will spend a year in the Eastern Air Temple to improve their skills and befriend with their fellow young nuns.
⠀⠀
When he arrives, he will attract the eye of the bright Ganai, concerned by the fact that he is the only one that hasn’t got tattoos.
Sister Lio will put her in charge of teaching the prankster to improve his skills and make him a Master airbender asap.
Reluctantly, Ganai accepts, even though she is repelled by the ignorance of the young boy who cannot stop teasing her, but at the same time is intrigued by the sensation his presence engenders within herself…
Somehow, Aang also feels something unexplainable whenever he is next to the brilliant nun …

There once was a tiny brown sparrow, who was very tired of flying south every winter, just so he could fly all the way back to where he flew from. So one year, he decided to stay, and spend the winter in his tree.
The snow hit the ground, and sure enough he watched the other birds fly off while he sat in his tree. Pretty soon it got really cold, and he decided he didn't want to stick around, so off he flew. By then it was getting pretty damn cold, so before he got very far, his wings froze. He dropped from the sky and landed on the roof of an old barn, and fell right through onto the dirt floor. As if that wasn't bad enough, a cow walked over a shit right on him. The sparrow was so sad, he knew the end was near. Then he realized that the shit was warming him up, and his wings were defrosting! He was so happy he began to sing, a cat heard him, dug him out, and ate him.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY---
1. Someone who shits on you is not necessarily your enemy.
2. Someone who digs you out of the shit is not necessarily your friend.
3. If your warm and happy in a pile of shit, keep your damn mouth shut! #sparrow #bird

The first time Ivy say the dynamic duo together, Ivy thought Batman had snapped. He had finally gone insane. Despite her corrupt, black heart, she couldn’t understand how he could justify bringing a child into the War between good and evil. She underestimated the Batman, and his new sidekick; Robin.

At first he was just a nuisance. He was agile, and incredibly acrobatic. She despised how he could easily outmaneuver her vines just by gracefully flipping around. And he would crack jokes in the middle of combat, which surprised her given that the Batman would never dare do such a thing. This made her question how the two could be related, as they were so different from each other. There was a light inside of Robin that Batman didn’t have; a goodness within him. She could see it in the way he smiled. Sometimes it looked like he was even having fun while fighting crime.

As he grew from boy to man, his body became toned, and his jawline sharpened, with wild black hair, and a smile just a little bit wider. He was faster and stronger than his predecessor. But with his growth, he also became increasingly prey to her seductive methods. Ivy would often purposefully separate him from Batman. Cornering the Boy Wonder in her jungle, she forced him to lust for her, even though she knew he didn’t want her. It was like a predator playing with its prey before finishing it off. The hunt was all too amusing for her.

There were several times when Batman caught her taking advantage of Robin when she had him under her influence. This enraged the vigilante, and probably scarred the apprentice, but she didn’t care. That was the ultimate evil in Ivy’s dark heart. She had barely a drop of mercy within her.

Eventually Robin no longer showed up along side Batman do fight Ivy. She occasionally made fun of the vigilante for being on his own again, and the villainess knew that there were two explanations for his disappearance; he had either left Batman or he had been killed.

Ivy secretly hoped that he was still alive though. She hated to lose her playthings, especially when they were so ruggedly handsome and fun to hold onto.

I ordered an Uber and then after 20 minutes the guy finally arrived at the pick up point after going in circles a few times. Only he kept driving even though he saw me. I walked to the car as he pulled into a parking lot. He drove off as soon as I turned the corner. I called him multiple times and realized my Uber app said I was in the car even though I wasn’t. He was driving to my destination without me, but making a very long stop on a random street along the way. After he finally answered and I explained , he said he’d cancel the ride, he didn’t. Then, my next uber driver picked me up, only I mistakenly put the wrong address. He dropped me off at the address only we couldn’t find the house. After about 5 min he told me there was nothing more he can do. At that point my phone died and I was still looking for the house, not knowing I was at the wrong address and my Uber driver was gone. I heard people so I knocked on their door. At this point it’s 2am. A girl comes out and I explain what happened and asked where that address was. She said she was in the middle of a date and her “man” would be upset about this. I asked to borrow a charger and she told me to wait outside. In the meantime go ask her neighbor where it was. I go to the neighbors house knock on the door, there was a party going on but nobody answered. I hear them talk about me but not open the door. So I give up and as I’m on the verge of tears my phone turns on. I immediately call someone from the party to pick me up. My phone dies again. So I stand on the corner of the block for a while and nothing. A car pulls up behind me and I walk to the car, I knock on their window and they barely open it. I ask to borrow their charger and explain what happened. He said he doesn’t have a charger even though his phone is charging on the dash. He takes off and then my friend finally pulls up. Not only was last night an adventure but a lesson that not everyone will be there for you when you need them. The point of this picture is to show someone who has always been there . In conclusion, new year, same us.

Invitation to a Beheading by Vladimir Nabokov is a dream-like masterpiece which is somehow mostly
unknown and unread, probably due to being in Lolita’s shadow.
Warning: spoilers.
.
The majority of this novel takes place in Cincinnatis C’s jail cell,
he is the sole prisoner in a prison that is referred to as a 'fortress'.
In one instance his jailers are referred to as ‘everyone’. The
fortress forces him to see the world through a very limited
perspective. He feels trapped and is very uneasy that no one will
tell him when he is scheduled to be executed.
.
He had been sentenced to be executed for a made up crime - 'gnostical
turpitude', which could mean something like 'the possession of a
depraved worldview'. We get a few flashbacks from
C.C.’s childhood where he recollects that he saw the world differently
that others as far back as he can remember. His mother who he never
met comes to visit him and told him that his father also was inflicted
with the same way of thinking. This seems to be why he is in prison.
His mother tells him a story of one of her childhood toys which were
unrecognizable objects that they called ‘nonnons’, these objects were
distorted beyond comprehension, it wasn’t until a special warped mirror was
used to view the objects in that restored them to their shape, and you
could then see what the objects were meant to be. I believe his mother was
telling C.C. that he could see a different reality through his own
mirror.
.
During the countdown to his beheading C.C. stands up and walks away to the cries
of “you can’t, you can’t” He realizes he can walk away from this.
He finally uses his mirror to see that this reality is only
an allusion, that he doesn’t need to conform to the views of the majority. As he is walking away from the execution site, the last
sentence reads “Cincinnatis made his way in that direction where, to
judge by the voices, stood beings akin to him."
.
This was a pleasure to read, it was deep but also absurdly humorous at times. An all around amazing novel and my favorite of 2018.

Pernahkah kamu berpikir siapa yang paling kesepian di luar angkasa sana? siapa yang paling kesepian di dasar laut sana? Di suatu saat ketika dipertemukan. Bagaimana jadinya?

Have you read a poem about The Astronauts's whale? It's them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When the snow falls, it looks like falling stars. They're both very sparkling.
Vincent actually lived under the sea. But he wants sun. He loves galaxy, stars, planet, and all kind of it. Then he swim to go there,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, he got everything he wants. Waded through the galaxy, alone. do you realize how lonely there is?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Until one day a creature who he’d never seen. Got caught in his mouth, in the strings of baleen. The creature it seemed was a man in a suit
With fluffy white pants, a glass helmet, and boots
The man, through the glass, said, “Help me I’m caught!
I’m not your fish food; I’m a lost astronaut!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So Vincent replied, “Oh, I couldn’t harm a fly!"
"I’m augie as gentle as June, I’m as peaceful as pie”
But the astronaut, in fear, turned and wiggled and tossed
He was floss for a whale and so terribly lost
But just then, out of the blue, floated a piece of driftwood
And the man in the suit did what any man would
He pulled and he screamed to escape from the mouth. Then he made him out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Short story, they made friend then they surfing the stars in the sky. Until one day, vincent was homesick. Vincent soon realized something he needed to do. He had to return to his life under the sea.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cause life out in space wasn’t made for a whale.
He was built for the sea with his fins, spout, and tail. He came back to sea.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This happened to augie too. He was thinking about his beautiful wife. Then vincent also helped augie.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It won’t be long till we both meet again. For this new friendship of ours is far from its end. And now that we know where we each belong. We'll visit, share and sing faraway songs
And remember our times exploring deep outer space.
And know that home is the most wonderful place
Where love never wanders or suddenly strays. Forever it’s with you, it won’t go away.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Home is where the people you love are and where the people who love you are.

paid his debts for him, bore his sins, carried his transgressions,
rose again for him, and
appears in Heaven for him as his Advocate at the right hand of God. 💛
He sees Jesus — and clings to Him. Seeing this Savior and trusting in Him — he feels peace and hope and willingly does battle against the foes of his soul.
💛
He sees his own many sins, his own weak heart, a tempting world,
a busy devil —
and if he looked only at them, he might well despair. 💛
BUT he sees also a mighty Savior, an interceding Savior, a sympathizing Savior — His blood, His righteousness, His everlasting priesthood — and he believes that all this is his own. He sees Jesus — and casts his whole weight on Him. Seeing Him, he cheerfully fights on, with a full confidence that he will prove more than conqueror through Him that loved him.
💛
Let there be no mistake in your mind as to the special character of the man who has come to Christ, and is a true Christian. He is not an angel, he is not a half-angelic being, in whom is no weakness, or blemish, or infirmity - he is nothing of the kind. He is nothing more than a sinner who has found out his sinfulness, and has learned the blessed secret of living by faith in Christ. 💛
What was the glorious company of the apostles and prophets? What was the noble army of martyrs? What were Isaiah, Daniel, Peter, Paul, Polycarp, Augustine, Luther, Bunyan...? What were they all, but sinners who knew and felt their sins, and trusted only in Christ? What were they, but men who accepted the invitation I bring you this day, and came to Christ by faith? By this faith they lived; in this faith they died. In themselves and their doings they saw nothing worth mentioning; but in Christ they saw all that their souls required. 💛
The invitation of Christ is now before you. If you never listened to it before, listen to it today. Broad, full, free, wide, simple, tender, kind, that invitation will leave you without excuse if you refuse to accept it. There is one invitation ought always to be accepted: the one before you today. Jesus Christ is saying, “Come unto Me"-JCRyle #theologythursdays📖

I grew up surrounded by animals and no doubt I've loved each of them but if I'm being honest Sumo is the One for me. I love my other two dogs as much as I love Sumo but I can't help but feel Sumo is a very special little fellow for me. It's almost as if he could read my mind because he instinctively knows what I want him to do or where and how I want him to be so I rarely give him commands. In fact, I'm not even sure if he knows any regular dog commands other than numerous party tricks (like 'pirouette' which makes him stand on his hindlegs and ever so elegantly twirl a pirouette or after hearing "bang" he dies theatrically and when asking "who wants a treat" he'll sit and raise his front paw like a first-grader in a class room etc.). People often tell me that he'd be a human if he could talk and that pretty much sums it. I talk to him like he was a fellow human and he understands and replies such a way that I know my message/question was clear to him. Simple example of this is when we are on a walk and I talk to him with long sentences in which I might ask him if he's ok or if he feels tired (he has a bad back these days). As a reply he'll position himself next to me so that I can easily pick him up to my arms if he's tired and if not he'll look at me and take a few running steps to signal that he still feels like walking. I've been asked why I ended up taking three different breeds eventhough Sumo is perfect and the reason is that I want all of my dogs and their characters to be clear in my memories when it's time to say goodbyes. #girlsbestfriend #bolognesedog #lovemydog #puppylove #smalldogs #whitedogs #seniordog #dogsofig

(Well, a few days ago, #secondchildprobs) He’s a chunky boy. At his recent check up he was 20lbs 5oz! 😂 We just make huge babies around here. We’ve been sleep training the last week & Liam has started sleeping through the night. 🙌🏼 woo! He’s also been sleeping in his crib. He’s still just a super happy baby. He talks all the time, smiles, is super ticklish, & it’s really easy to get him to laugh. But, once he’s hungry or tired he goes from happiness to full blown tears in seconds. There’s no leading up to it. He doesn’t have great patience haha! He still has dark hair, bright crystal blue eyes, we love his big chunky cheeks, & especially his rolls all over! He can hold his head up strong now, does great with tummy time, & can roll onto his back if he’s put down on his tummy, & onto his side if he’s put down on his back. We tested out the baby jumper last week & his first time he just cried. He does fine in it now, but hasn’t figured out how to jump yet.
We love this boy & I just can’t believe how quickly he is growing up. It sounds cliche but it’s the honest truth, it feels like we just had him yesterday! ❤️

When I look at this face I can’t imagine NOT finding him in that cold iron and concrete shelter. We never knew how he ended up there, but I am glad that he did. Because of idiots throwing him away like yesterday’s trash, we were able to adopt him and love him like he deserves!! The minute I saw his face on the shelter website I knew he would be ours if I could get there fast enough. I cried all the way there and even when we got to the shelter I couldn’t quit bawling. They laughed at me and said they never saw someone cry ADOPTING an animal. I think I was so overcome with emotion because I wanted him so much. And really had we not drove straight there after I showed my husband his picture on the website he probably would not be ours, because as my husband and I carried him out, another family was on their way in to see him. Literally we passed a woman who said “Oh no that was the dog we came here to see!” All during the paperwork that day I kept asking the worker who was helping us “Are you sure that no one will give him to someone else?!” No we won’t he’s yours she kept assuring me the whole time. He’s had 5 knee surgeries and was still his sweet self throughout it all. He has the sweetest way of greeting you when you come home ( after the crazy barking subsides ) by wagging his tail and entire fat body with his bone in his mouth and moving his head up and down. He was 32 lbs at 12 weeks (my husband thought that was a typo) “There is no way that dog weighs 32 lbs at 12 weeks!” he said to me. Well he did. The Vet confirmed it. The Vet said he’s going to be huge and he is. He’s 102 lbs now and gets tons of exercise. He does everything but talk and has a hilarious way of getting what he wants across to you. Our lives are better because WHOEVER YOU ARE, you didn’t want him. Well we always will so I guess we should THANK YOU for being an IDIOT. Please adopt. Don’t buy a dog. You may be missing the time of your life!!

I wouldn't experience it if it was not because of people who constantly support and help me; family, friends, and people I never meet before. Not to forget, a very kind person who has invested in me through fundraising I conducted on June 2018
========================
I am a domestic violence survivor. I am a 23 years old man and that memory is still vivid, but I guess I am privileged enough because it has transformed me to the person who I am today. Younger me would think that I must have been damned for being in such environment, no one asked for it nor to be born in that situation. That flamboyant boy was too shy and too afraid to talk about what happened and what he saw daily during those years, hence he kept it for himself.

Some of us might have something dark that haunts us for too long. Too long until we no longer can identify whether that is right or wrong. Too long until we feel we are entitled to agony and only agony.

That little boy only dreamed to create the world he wanted to see in the future. He was very ambitious, indeed. We must agree that's the nature of children. Few years later, he got himself into a system he thinks could change things he has been dreaming to change. Apparently, he's still very ambitious. I'm not sure he's an adult since he still carries that nature of children.

As the time goes by, some told him to choose more promising way because life does not always revolve around idealism because sometimes it has anxiety underneath. But I'm not sure he listens to them as he still speaks words of fire, is driven by anger upon things he can do nothing about, and practices what younger version of him thought would change something in the future. That man is a kid inside.

There's always a room for improvement. That little boy would've thought (if he sees this right now) that this grown-up man is still as dull as he was, but once again: there's always a room for improvement. To invest in oneself isn't easy, but the perks of it is we have the opportunity to see how much they grow. That grown-up man happens to be me, and I have been entertained by seeing how funny I grow until this very moment.

That was the first stamp on his passport.

Happy Holidays // Be Proud • Be Loud • Be Merry
This is a picture of Carl Betts opening Christmas presents at his mother's house in the early 1950's. Carl had been in the Navy, had gotten drunk, and had been caught with another sailor aboard ship. The naked men were tossed in the brig and eventually out of the Navy. A few days before Christmas, Carl went home alone to his mother's house in Pasadena, California. He couldn't tell her that he had been dishonorably discharged so he said he had been given extra time off for the holidays. This is the last photo ever taken of Carl. His mother snapped the picture as Carl sat quietly opening a few gifts on Christmas morning. Carl started drinking and in a few hours called one of his friends and said he needed talk to him. Carl had told his friend some years before that he was gay but that he didn’t want to be like that. He wanted to marry, have kids and be straight like everyone else. Carl had a series of girlfriends but not a lasting relationship with any of them. He drank too much and when he did, he always wound up in a public restroom or an alley way, or even in a parked car with men like himself; drunk, naked and satisfying a lust he couldn’t control. Carl never made it to his friends house that night. His body was found below the Colorado
Street Bridge, his car engine still running on the bridge above. It wasn’t known if he jumped or if he got out of the car and, in his drunken stupor, fell over the edge. His friend always thought he had committed suicide over not being able to face his gay nature. Carl’s mother believed her son just lost his balance and toppled over the railing. She never knew her son was gay.

I was in a bank, eating my strawberries( I LOVE STRAWBERRIES!!!) and waiting for Josh. I look at my phone, no signals of him...will he let me stood up here? As I finished my thoughts I see Josh, he comes in my way. As he arrived, he gestured to sit in the bank, My heart was beating, I really wanted us to be together, I wanted to be wrapped around his warm arms, but I was still mad at him! " Chloe I'm really sorry, I really didn't mean that" he starts " I don't need any other girl if I have you " he continues starting to tear up, " You're the only one I want, and the only one I've ever really loved" my heart stopped when I heard it...did he say he loves me?! " Did Josh Hyland confessed his love for me? " I tease him, he laughts and I join him, he looks at me, " what?" I ask, Before I could do anything his lips were pressing mines, it was good, no better than good, it was perfect, it was like heaven on earth, I put my arms around his neck, he pulls me closer to him, there was no space between us and I didn't want it to be. He splits us up and says " I love you Chloe Lukasiak" I smile " I might like you a little bit" he stares at me , waiting for me to confess to him, it won't be that easy Josh, I hug him and say " I like you" then we make our way to sports, the only class we have together today. Josh You were my first And second kiss...better not mess it up👌

First and foremost all praise and glory to God! Last Sunday at our homeless Outreach we ran into this man and his name is Everett. I believe he was a male prostitute that was homeless. My brother in Christ Jorge was talking with him and taking down his prayer request when I overheard him say he wanted to be set free. I then told him today can be that day. As we sat down and began to talk he humbled himself and started to share his past. I share my testimony with him as well and told Everett how Jesus changed my life. My brother Jorge and I then asked him if he wanted prayer and he said yes. So i told him I would start off and for him to say what's on his heart and just humble himself before the Lord. I DID NOT have him say a "sinner's prayer" because I believe they make TOO MANY false converts and plus it's not even in the bible. Anyhow as we began to pray over him for repentance, healing, deliverance, obedience, understanding and many other things, Everett then started to cry out to God with a humble heart. He was asking the Lord to change his ways and heal his past. He said he was sick of living the way he was living and he knew what he was doing was wrong. He asked the Lord to heal him, show how things through His Word, give him and understanding of how to pray and also to change his ways because he was tired of living the life he was living. After we were done praying Jorge left to minister to someone else and i was able to just sit down and talk with him for a good 20-30 mins. It was a humbling experience and we were both in tears. I thanked the Lord for allowing me to see a grown man mourn over his sin of homosexuality. I also thanked Everett for being bold enough to share his past and not feel ashamed. I told him that people like him are the reason why we go out and do our homeless outreaches. We were able to give him a bible and I gave him my number and told him to contact me if he ever needed anything. I believe this man really came to God with godly sorrow. Most homosexuals I see or know see NOTHING wrong with their sin in fact they take pleasure in it...

After Y/n and I hung up Andy came into my room. "Was it her?" He asked and I nodded. "You guys talked more than 5 hours ! Hahaha." He laughed. "I know right...it's amazing talking to her and guess what she told me..." I said. "What?" He asked. "She broke up with her boyfriend." I smirked. "No way! Dude that's awesome! Now it's your chance to get her." He smiled. "I don't know man.." I shrugged. "What do you mean you don't know? Isn't she the right one?" He asked. "I don't know...maybe she is but I have to find it out. I still don't really know her and she me, so I have to get to know her. What if she isn't the right one? I have to find out...but I don't know how." I told him. "Go and visit her." He said I looked at him a bit confused. "I mean you now have some time before magcon starts again, so why don't you go and visit her? But don't tell her, make it a surprise! She'll love it." He smiled. "You sure?" I asked. "All I know about girls is that they love being surprised, no matter what it is. As long as it's a bit romantic or as long as they see that you care about them, they'll be happy." He told me and I nodded. "Thanks man." I said and he smiled.
Maybe he was right, I should go and visit her. Magcon starts in two months so I have enough time to go and see her. "Where do you said she lives?" Andy asked. "Seattle." I answered. "Perfect!! My parents got me a house there, I can give you the key for it so you don't have to pay for a hotel. And you can stay there as long as you want." He told me. "Why do you have a house in Seattle?" I asked. "I wanted to move there some day when I finish school but it never came to it so I just have it there." He laughed. "Alright...and you sure I can stay there?" I wanted to know. "Of course. It's a pretty big house so there's enough space, you also can invite her there to be all alone with her ya know." He smirked. "Shut up Andy!" I laughed. (More in the comments)

Just wanted to brag about how amazing Tom is. The past few months have been really stressful and emotional for me for various reasons. Instead of running away at the site of my tears and chaos he drew closer. Tom is the best listener I’ve ever met and so compassionate. He has even helped me with basic things when life seems like it’s too much to handle; he goes grocery shopping with me, brings me food when I’m too exhausted to cook, and even cleans my apartment. I can’t even count the number of times he’s not only helped me do the dishes but has done all of them himself after he worked a full week. He has helped me with hanging up clothes in my closet and has made my bed more times than I have! He has stepped up to the plate of being a bearded dragon dad and feeds Freddie whenever he comes over. He does all this for me when he has his own apartment and work to handle. But what’s even more amazing is that he points me to Jesus. Tom sends me bible verses and pictures of devotionals that he thinks would help. He calls me to pray with me over the phone every night. I just can’t believe how lucky I am to be with such an incredibly selfless man of God. And I get to marry this guy in 29 weeks. I can’t even express how thankful I am for Tom. ❤️

I am always hesitant to post things that are truly personal on social media. I'm a somewhat private person and am generally uncomfortable with sharing my emotions. That being said, my father's death is something I feel compelled to post about. He was special. He gave me everything I have and made me everything I am as an artist and a person.
I recently posted the following on his website davidbutterfield.com

David Butterfield died on November 18, 2018. He was an artist. A painter, musician, writer, photographer. He was an autodidact and a polymath. An extraordinary talent. He was hilarious and brilliant and kind. He was a truly good person. He was my dad. He just turned 70 and there were so many things he still wanted to do. Death comes for us all, but it came for him too soon and we were not ready to lose him. I don’t really know what else to say about it. Our family is devastated. I am devastated. The world was a better place with him in it and now he’s gone. I want to write a million words about what a unique and beautiful person he was, but nothing I write will ever adequately describe him -his life, his accomplishments, his spirit- or convey how profoundly sorry I am that he is no longer here. Anyone who knew him during his time on earth should consider themselves fortunate and nobody is more fortunate than me in this respect. He was the most wonderful father and I am forever grateful to have had him in my life.

Cry out to the Lord. He hears your voice. He understands you. He knows you. He wants you, all of you. He feels your pain. He is gracious. He is righteous. He is patient. He is a God of compassion & peace. Lean on Him. Rest in His presence. What a blessing it is to be able to call upon the One who has authority above all things. The One who has already won the battle. Any trial we face can ultimately bring glory to Him. He can bring good out of any bad situation. Look at your problems as opportunities to honor Him. Trust in the name of Jesus and watch all of your worries tremble.

20 truths God has taught me in 20 years: 1. He saves by grace and there’s nothing we could ever do to earn or lose that grace. (Ephesians 2:8) 2.

1. He saves by grace and there’s nothing we could ever do to earn or lose that grace. (Ephesians 2:8)
2. He smiles when He looks at you, and He is proud of you.
3. He has specifically intertwined the very passions, quirks, gifts, and goals that you have into your heart. Do not lose that heart. Use that heart.
4. In an ever changing world, He is never changing.
5. Jesus is joy. Real joy.
6. If he tells you something, cling to it... because no word from God will ever fail. (Luke 1:37 NIV)
7. When you pray to grow, He will take you through times of rain.
8. No season lasts for ever... no matter how good or bad it may be. It is temporary like all things in this world.
9. You must first be filled in order to pour out to others.
10. No sin done against you is more important than someone’s relationship with Christ. Don’t let their sin towards you keep you from praying for them.
11. You can maintain a busy life without having a busy heart... but only with Jesus.
12. My soul needs nothing more than it needs time with the Father.
13. Through prayer, He does not change His will to fit our hearts’ desires, but changes our hearts’ desires to fit His will.
14. Being in relationship with Him is so much more than the stereotypical do’s and don’t’s of Christianity and rules of religion... He simply wants us to enjoy this life and enjoy our relationship with Him.
15. He is faithful to His people, no matter what.
16. If there’s spiritual warfare we don’t always see, that means there’s spiritual victories we don’t always see. He is always working and always winning.
17. Having a relationship with Christ is the best decision you will ever make. Truly pursuing that relationship with Him is the second best.
18. Godly community is a necessity, but living in a holy bubble is not. Love all, pray for all, reach out to all, and bless all... regardless.
19. Prayer is not something we have to do, but something we GET to do.
20. He is never mad at you, but is madly in love with you.. for ever.
20 years filled with the sweetest blessings. THANK y’all. Thanks, Jesus 💛 #4dayslate hehe

I'm gonna be honest with you.
Mike Shinoda's concert destroyed me. Devastated me. It opened up the wounds. Just like when you cut your hand and after a few day you unexpectedly hit it, it starts bleeding and pulsing again. It reminds what happened to you. You gotta run to cover it even though you know the scar will remain. Even a worst one.
Seeing Mike last week in Milan was like hitting the wound. I lost it since the first song (as you can tell by my voice in the Roads Untraveled video). I collapsed. It felt like hitting a wall while running at high speed. There was a voice screaming "It'll never be the same anymore! He's gone. For real, he's no longer here! Look at Mike, he's alone up there on that stage!". It was a cathartic experience I'll always be thankful for having had the opportunity to live it!
I really love Mike Shinoda. I really really do! I was SO happy to see him! He had an incredible courage and strength to start again. To do what he has done. He needed it. He needed to go back with his people, touching our hands, hearing our voices, seeing our tears. He always knew he was never alone through all of this. We could guess it by his smile, by his costantly wet eyes. I needed it too, I needed to feel him close, to tell him "Hey Mike, I am here. I'll always be here for you".
It was painful, but you know what? We made him proud. Chester was laughing and singing with us, because that's what he'd have done if he was on that stage. He'd have stretched his hands towards us saying italian fans are the best crowd in the world and that we've been so "fucking amazing" since always.
Chester taught us a lot about life, about the strength to start again and to go on despite everything. And he keeps doing it.
I owe you everything, Mike and Chester. The person I am today wouldn't exist.
Thank you! ❤ @m_shinoda @linkinpark @chesterbe •

Grandpa is still his hero; he’s beyond obsessed with “woowoos” “shotguns” and he relates all of that to Grandpa (given the only gift he wanted from mama was this specific police car) and I can’t forget to mention Grandma, he loves her to pieces! Uncle Brandyn is his best friend, and he adores his auntie!! (Dont worry everyone else great grandmas/uncles/aunts, cousins he loves you too!) I love all your random hugs + kisses, all your cuddles and when you need to hold my hand just because. I love when you do something good or bad and you look to me to see my reaction, I love watching you play and use your imagination, I love when you make yourself laugh; I love you more and more every single day my handsome man, I’m beyond proud of you and absolutely adore watching you grow and learn new things.. here is to being two, Let the adventures continue! 💙

On Sarmad Faqeer. Extract Arundhati Roy’s ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ (N.B. Mahakavi Santokh Singh dedicated three sub-chapters of his great Sri Gurpartap Sooraj Granth to the life and martyrdom of Sarmad): “Not all the visitors to Hazrat Sarmad Shaheed’s dargah knew his story. Some knew parts of it, some knew none of it and some made up their own versions. Most knew he was a Jewish Armenian merchant who had travelled to Delhi from Persia in pursuit of the love of his life. Few knew the love of his life was Abhay Chand a young Hindu boy he had met in Sindh. Most knew he had renounced Judaism and embraced Islam. Few knew his spiritual search eventually led him to renounce orthodox Islam too. Most knew he had lived on the streets of Shahjahanabad as a naked fakir before being publicly executed. Few knew the reason for his execution was not the offence caused by his public nakedness but the offence caused by his apostasy. Aurangzeb, emperor at the time, summoned Sarmad to his court and asked him to prove he was a true Muslim by reciting the kalima: la ilaha illallah, Mohammed-ur rasul Allah - There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is His Messenger. Sarmad stood naked in the royal court in the Red Fort before a jury of Qazis and Maulanas. Clouds stopped drifting in the sky, birds froze in mid-flight and the air in the fort grew thick and impenetrable as he began to recite the Kalima. But no sooner had he started than he stopped. All he said was the first phrase: ‘la ilaha’ There is no God. He could not go any further, he insisted, until he had completed his spiritual search and could embrace Allah with all his heart. Until then, he said, reciting Kalima would only be a mockery of prayer. Aurangzeb, backed by his Qazis, ordered Sarmad’s execution”

On this day 24 years ago, a being was born who
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Had all the world to look forward to
Destined himself to be great
Went on an adventure of self discovery through every emotion in the book
Chose to continue along when he almost ended it all
Reached a point where he found his peace
Found his certainty in an unknown universe &
Placed himself where he wants to be—exactly where he is right now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What a wonder that he found that who he wanted to be was always right in front of him, now breathing as he continues to evoke this person for the world to see. What a journey it's been for him. And I'm glad he's made it this far, and never gave up who he was along the way—even if he had to hide a bit. He's smart, talented, & a world class individual that I wouldn't be here without. I'm eternally grateful for this person, for he became who he wanted, & I get to live it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Grateful to be here today as I am always 🙏🏾

He volado hasta México, y he sentido amor en Guadalajara gratitud en Monterrey y ganas de no morir nunca en Ciudad de México. Aprendí humildad en San Luis, respeto en Xalapa, valor en Toluca, pasión en Querétaro y amistad en Puebla. He bañado mi piel en la sal del mar pacífico en Perú y me he sentido en casa justo antes de que me acogieran como a un hijo en Rosario y como un hermano en Buenos Aires. He dejado el alma en un escenario en Montevideo mientras el río de la plata me miraba a dos calles. Por si no me he presentado, soy Ambkor, aunque prefiero que me llamen Óscar y desde un escritorio soñé que pasaría todo lo que acabo de escribir.

I decided to go to the one place in Gotham that you could hear the word on the street anytime of the day. It may reek of fish, but it's the only place..." Quite easily, the ritziest place in Gotham City. Built by Oswald Cobblepot, also known as The Penguin, the place has an eccentric arctic theme, with numerous ice sculptures and aquariums lining the walls. In the center of the building is a large habitat for leopard seals, who may or may not have an acquired taste for human flesh. As I came across the top of the building with my casual clothes, I decided to get a closer look towards the action. Tim pulled out small suction cup knives and made a huge circle that he could fit through. He placed the glass on the ground outside, as he set up a cable to bring him down and up in case of emergency. As he slowly came down into the lounge, he scanned the area where Cobblepot was. Frankly, that was in the center of the place and heavily guarded by about twenty heavy armed men. His feet touched the ground and he immediately went straight to the walkway to Cobblepot. Tim started to walk and thought to himself. "I've brought my normal clothes, so that was one up for me." As he approached Cobblepot he came up with an elaborate plan. The Penguin, aka Oswald Cobblepot was chopping down on his huge plate of fish and Tim had stopped in front of his desk with more than fifty eyes watch him to make sure he didn't make any moves. "Ahem! Mr. Cobblepot? A moment of your time?" Tim said as he looked around the big pile of fish. "What...." He groaned as he threw the rest of the fish on the ground. "I was wondering.. I'm looking for my client.. She calls herself the new Joker around Gotham?" Oswalds eye brows both go up and he smirked. "Ah, you mean the real Jokers girl... Ever since Bats finished the job with Joker, she's been seeking out revenge."

Part 19: *your POV* <<three days later>> I was sitting in the sofa in the living room listening to Music on my laptop. I scrolled through Instagram as I suddenly got a call in skype, it was H/n. I stopped the Music and answered the call. "HEEEELLLLOOOOOO" he shouted and I started smiling when I saw his face. "Heeeeey." I said. "Happy to see you." I added. "Same! Feels like I haven't seen you for ages but it was only a week. Hahaha." We both were laughing. "So how are you?" He asked. "Um...well i broke up with my boyfriend just a few days ago..." I started. "Oh I'm sorry for you. Is everything alright?" He said. "Yeah, I'm totally fine! I was really happy about that." I giggled. "Really? Tell me what happened." He said and I told him what happened a couple days ago. "Wow girl! Slay!" He was fascinated. "Yeah I was really proud of myself haha. And he didn't say a word, everyone was starring at us but I didn't care. It felt so good you have no idea!" I smiled. "See, I told you you don't need him to be happy." He said and I nodded.
After a couple hours we both said goodbye and hung up. I love talking to him, it's so much fun and he is so sweet! Ryan still thinks that I broke up because of H/n but that's not true...alright maybe a bit, H/n is cute and all that he cares a lot about me and my feelings. In the past six weeks we spent together I got to know him so well and since that I couldn't stop thinking about him. Ryan doesn't like that at all, he gets jealous. Of course I didn't tell him that I'm think about H/n that whole time but he got really pissed because of that pic and that he texts me. But I don't care, I mean he's not my boyfriend anymore.
I came up with a little idea, I grabbed my phone and logged into Instagram. I searched for the picture of me and H/n where we did the piggy back ride. When I found it I posted it with the caption "missing this cute idiot 😜😘" and tagged him in the picture. When it posted I already got some likes and a comment which says "Miss ya more u little freak 😂😘" it was from H/n. I knew that this gonna make Ryan really pissed, but who cares?! I don't need him anymore, I'm happy how it is now. (More in the comments)

TO BE DESTROYED 05/29/15
#BOBMARLEY – #A1037091
MALE, GRAY / WHITE, AMERICAN #STAFFORDSHIRE MIX, 1 yr, 6 mos 64lbs.

A volunteer writes: Bob waited so patiently in his kennel to go out as I took the barking dogs first, and he was just so quiet. When he stood up and followed me with his eyes I knew he needed to go out. Showing off his probable housetraining skills he took advantage of being outside immediately and then off to the park we go. Bob pulls hard on the leash and will benefit from a harness and/or some leash training to make it more enjoyable for both ends of the leash. He’s a magnificent looking boy in a slate gray coat, his weight perfect for his size and his coat clean and groomed. In the backyard Bob finds a tennis ball immediately and his tail wags, his eyes sparkle and he’s a happy boy giving chase and settling down for a good old fashioned tennis ball chomp. He lays down froggy style which I love, his tail wagging, and when I offer him a treat he’s conflicted – treat, ball, treat, ball and eventually of course has both. He comes when I call him, leaning in for petting, enjoying another treat which he takes gently from my fingers. He’s friendly and easy going, and even staff told me how much they liked him for his quiet and well behaved demeanor. When our time together was over he hopped back into his kennel without issue. As of this writing I suspect that our Bob Marley won’t be singing any reggae as he strikes me as more of a ballad kind of a guy. Ask to meet him today!

He even walked me down the aisle when he was told he had 3 months to live. 😢 I grew up & married into money/materialism but he showed me how to have steak, crab legs, & oodles & noodles at the same time... he showed me perception is what YOU make it.. I wish he was still alive to see that even though that marriage didn’t work out, I met someone with a heart just like his this time that will give his all even if it isn’t materialistic. He even loves football & beer just like my stepfather. I wish he was here to see I finally took his advice & gave my biological dad a chance. I wish he was here to use all the redskin tickets I have access to & joke about my cowboys ! But I know that when he was holding my hand taking his last breath, he was transferring his strength to me, to carry on. You taught me peace & calmness. You taught me that no man is perfect but a good man is one who heals you just as much as you heal him. I hope you’re smiling down as I process real love, growth & healing with all the men in my life ! Thank you for helping my mom heal & showing me love is patient, Love is kind, Love is calm.

A woman said, “In 1947 I was thirty-eight years old and I had been suffering cancer of the intestine. The cancer was found by x-ray, and it was decided to operate. Before going to the hospital I wanted to visit San Giovanni Rotondo to meet Padre Pio. My husband, my daughter and one of her friends, took me to him. I desired to confess my sins to Padre Pio and to speak with him concerning my disease, but it was not possible to meet him. My husband told my problem to one of the friars. That friar was moved and he promised to report all to Padre Pio. In a short time, I was asked to go into the corridor of the convent where Padre Pio would pass. Padre Pio walked through the crowd, but he was interested only in me. He asked me the reason for which I was so distraught and told me I was correct about the surgeon. After that, he encouraged me and he said he’d pray to God for me. I was amazed. In fact, he did not know the surgeon who was going to perform the operation, and nobody told him that I was the right person to speak to in the crowd. Yet, he appeared to know both the surgeon and me. I faced my operation with hope and with peace. The surgeon was the first one who spoke of a miracle. He performed an appendectomy despite previous x-rays that showed cancer. The surgeon did not believe in God, but since then he has put a crucifix in each room of the hospital. There was no evidence of cancer anymore. After this miracle and a short time of rest I returned to San Giovanni Rotondo in order to meet with Padre Pio. The saintly friar was going to the sacristy when he suddenly stopped and smiled at me - he said: 'What do you know? You have come back here!'...and he gave me his hand to kiss, which I affectionately held in my hands.”

But after some reflection this week and feeling a bit homesick for the first time since arriving here, I thought I would post about the greatest gift of my life.
Thinking back to when I met @gogogastro I remember liking him immediately but never considered anything romantic with him because of my lack of self love, feeling that I was far too big for a guy like him. (Which I now know is stupid and I hope no one else ever feels like that.) I’ve been thinking a lot about the beginning of our relationship. We met working in a restaurant while I went to hair school. I thought he was cute and funny and smart. I love an accent, although East Coast isn’t the one I ever thought I would go for ;) He was Francophone which impressed me, crazy meticulous in the kitchen, super thoughtful and when he talked to me, made me feel like the only person in the room. He always reminded me to ‘take it easy’, which he still does to this day and as much as it makes me crazy, he’s usually right. It wasn’t until I came home from a vacation that it hit me when we ran into each other in the staircase at work. I had missed him. And he obviously missed me too because he asked me on a date that day. (Which ended up being him skateboarding over with a 6 pack of Pilsner and sleeping over that night.) Because that is the kind of girl I am. Sorry Mom and Dad! (Hahaha, the kind of girl I was.😉) When I think back to our early days, Nick respected me from the very beginning. He wanted to get to know me, go on morning coffee dates, talk about music, make me food, introduce me to his friends and use to push me home on his longboard so I didn’t have to walk. He was always game to stop for a stroll through a garden so I could rattle off scientific plant names to show off. He always says that he knew he would marry me from the first time he saw me and I never believed him. But I do now. Nick, I love you so much. I love how you let me be me, you trust me, believe in us and would do anything for our little family. Merry Christmas to me, you are the best gift in the whole wide world. xo

I imagine him running around, screaming loud and nagging.. I wish I can hold him again even if for a minute..and I would really be happy if I can at least see his beautiful face in my dreams.. I miss him not only because he is a piece of my heart but he is truly a special person who was loved by everyone he met .. his charming social nature.. his warm smile that will touch your heart as soon as you see it.. we were blessed to love him, take care of him and learn from him along his short journey in life.. it is amazing how such a tiny human can greatly impact our lives with all the love and strength he gave to us as gift.. after he left , I kept writing letters to him to tell him how big is the hole he has left after him.. I was battling to go back to life without his physical presence ... but now I believe that he lives and will always live in my heart ❣ I am extremely grateful for everything.. even for his pass away .. because I know that he will no longer suffer on this earth and he is now in a better place .. our love will grow forever and our hearts are knotted till we meet again.. I love you baby Jad and I send you kisses till the day we’ll be united again ❤️

He is such a fighter and always pushing forward to be better. He still has minor struggles that he faces but overall he's healed so gracefully and we thank God so much for his healing.
He works out 5 days a week, building his strength and mobility. He's in the process of doing vocational rehab so he can start going back to work. He cooks for the family sometimes, he makes the best egg sandwich! He's always looking after his little brothers and making sure they're doing what they're supposed to so they wont get in trouble. When I tell you he's awesome, I MEAN HE IS AWESOME!
It's mind blowing on how the brain works after a major brain injury. Ali is not the same Ali before his accident. His close friends and family can DEFINITELY see the difference. Even though at times I look back at life and with tears in my eyes I say miss the "Old Ali" but I know that God makes no mistakes. I'm embracing my new and restored Ali. Everyday day I see something heartwarming in him that I never seen before and that's when I realize that his accident was a mystery blessing.
On Oct 7, 2016 (2 years ago) when we were told that my Ali was "not" going to be able to do anything anymore, my heart just shattered into pieces. Every night and day I prayed over his body. Family, friends and strangers prayed for my Ace. God heard our prayers and we turned this tragic accident into a blessing. This young man is doing all that that the doctors said he wouldn't be able to do again.
God sends us through things in life to test our faith and to make us stronger. As hard as it may seem at the moment we just have to remember "God Makes No Mistakes" and "He won't give us anymore than what we can handle ". ♠️❤❤♠️❤❤♠️ Thanks again for everyone's prayers!

Serge Battour is absolutely THE original best boy, and I'm disappointed the KazeKi fandom is smaller than a grain of rice because that means people will never get to appreciate him the way those in the fandom do. He could've chosen to become bitter and hate the world for the way he was brought up, facing all sorts of abuse especially because of his skin color and later on for his sexuality, but NO. Instead, he turns the other cheek and chooses to even help the people who've opposed him (within reason). He has the gentlest heart of gold but also a fiery passion for the things and the people he loves, he's capable of looking past others' flaws and tries to see the best in anyone. He even, if need be, tries to be the guiding light in the darkness. When he believes in something, it's hard to shake him, and it's always for what he believes is right - a true Gryffindor. The manga focuses on all of that, on how he manages to remain such a good person regardless of what he's put through.
We need more people in this world like Serge. I realized that a long time ago, which is how I came to love and admire him so much as a character. I still believe to this day that he's exactly the type of person I want and need to be.
Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

After nearly 5 months of battling liver disease, we made the difficult decision to have him put to sleep at home. Patrick had gone into end-stage liver failure and just wasn't his happy, active self anymore-- a buildup of ammonia his liver was no longer able to process was making him unable to stop pacing or to rest, and we knew he wasn't going to get better. On his last day with us, we took him to his favorite place, Prospect Park, and he was surrounded by love when he went. This photo is of him asleep just before he crossed over.
He was ready to finally sleep, he even climbed up into the bed with all of us there and lay down, closing his eyes for the first time in almost two days. After the doctor gave him a sedative, he even snored for a minute or two (which is how we always know he's really, really tired and needs a rest). I held him in my arms and scratched his ears and squeezed his neck folds and told him what a good boy he was until he was gone (and then for a while after he was gone, too). We miss him so, so much and it feels impossible to move to DC today and start a new job tomorrow without him, but I am going to try. Thank you @badassbrooklyn for bringing him into our lives for 5 sweet, short years. Patrick was the happiest, weirdest, most wonderful dog in the entire world. He loved to jump up on strangers to say hi, wagged his tail nearly constantly, and never met a pizza crust or a street treat he didn't like. We are going to do our best to remember him that way and we hope everyone who knows him does too. He was the best thing to ever happen to me. Every morning I woke up happy to see him, and every time I came home I looked forward to hearing him run to the door and opening it to his smiling face and wagging tail. I am never, ever going to forget him or to stop missing him.

Have you ever paused to dwell on this fact, you are not merely a singular human being amongst billions of others, but Jesus himself thought of you.

Yes, He stopped to imagine you, He dreamed of your appearance, personality, frame & form.
He envisaged the very intricacies of who you are, and it delighted Him with so much pleasure to think of you that He allowed the dream to conceive into a fully formed & created being.
He allowed His dream of you to become a reality that is you.
He formed & fashioned every single cell to be so uniquely the you He imagined and He took such care crafting your face & your heart.
He then sat & smiled as He thought of all the wonderful things He would have you to do for Him and He began the plans in preparation for you to one day in the future have the opportunity to choose to accomplish them.
Then He went and placed a longing to be face-to-face with Him deep in your soul & placed the desires to be used by Him into your bones.
He saw you and said “you child are good.” Your creator desires to not just know you but come and make you His permanent address & put His splendour on display through the echo of His love in your life.

i had so much hope till the last second that he would never leave so much faith in him all to be left utterly disappointed heartbroken and hurt. i don't understand how a person whom i don't know personally could hurt me by his actions so much.
honestly i would have been okay if he had just told us that he was leaving and said his goodbyes and thank you's and gave the fans what they deserve but the way he is leaving barca is what hurts the most he let his fans suffer for weeks and weeks didn't confirm anything stayed silent while we were dying he didn't care at all about us and that's what hurts the most. thanks to him leaving i will never be able to accomplish my dream of going to barcelona to see a barca game live and watching the amazing bond of msn. it fucking sucks for everything to just come crashing down all of a sudden i don't even know what to say im so hurt by his actions and he has lost a little bit of my respect now. its annoying because i can't hate him i love him so much that i can't just forget everything i just have to deal with the fact that the person whom i love so much gave me so much pain.
i remember when i heard the the rumours about him leaving i just laughed and brushed it off thinking he would never leave barca lmao how fucking naive.
all i can hope now is that he apologizes to the fans for all the shit he put us through.
i wish him good luck in his future i don't think i'll ever stop supporting him but that doesn't mean that im okay with all the shit he put me through.
I'll always support barca they are the best in the world and i owe it to neymar for making me fall in love with barca if he didn't come to barca i probably wouldn't have been a culé but thanks to him i am and im always going to be a culé. thank you for all the memories thank you for everything that you have done for barca.
i just want you to remember that you won't find anything as great as barca @neymarjr

{T}he gargantuan meat cleaver dawned by the Orange Youth stricken the chain links with substantial force. The links splintered and crumbled under the might of the colossal edged weapon. Spawn’s suit screeched in pain and the retracted back to the safety of the symbiotic host body. Losing themselves in the cherry fibers attatched to his shoulder girdle. “That’s not my call, kid. Frosberg’s suicide was his choice and his alone. He was and still is my commanding officer. I don’t judge his decisions.” {U}sing the military as a scapegoat was Al’s soul trying to save itself from the horror of reality. The youth was right. That one girl’s life should have meant more to Simmons that the lost soul of his former commander. But sympathy was not something Malebolgia gave back. Only his killer instinct and drive to protect and slaughter. Thatwas why he interfered. {I}f Spawn was human, he would have had remorse. But Hell engulfed his black heart and he became a shadow of his former self. No honor left in this Solider. Just pain and the intent to destroy. Everything. -

{P}ain from having one of Leetha’s irons felt to the Hell’s Spawn like losing a arm. Though his solem features did not display it, he was in pain. From what he could not understand. Only weapons of Heaven held any strength against creatures of his breed. Was this boy one of God’s messengers? An Angel? Spawn bore a icy stare into the swordsman’s eyes. Maybe his soul would give him a more logical answer.Something stared back. {S}pawn saw that black and gold eyes of another. Then, the two horned blasphemer. The sight of the being inside of his head drove the Anti Hero over the deep end. He could not mistake those horns. No wonder he tried to slay Frosberg and his chains broken. There must have been some kind of Devil inside of him. He raised both his hands to his sides and eclipsed them in Hell Fire. He brought both hands together, flames smashing together like colliding star

Que soy intensa no es nuevo, y que me gusta despedir los años haciendo revisión y recuento, ya tampoco lo es.
Este año he leído 27 libros, sigo a medias con 3 y he abandonado 1. Y diréis "menuda filóloga, cada año son menos", pero son libros más profundos y más trabajados, así que no me siento mal (del todo).
He empezado un diario.
He seguido el trabajo del año pasado: he logrado quererme y cambiar los sujetadores gordos de relleno por unos de encajes preciosos.
Fui a una exposición con Isa que todavía recuerdo como si fuera ayer.
He afianzado amistades que me llenan muchísimo (y si, eso va por vosotros, filólogos).
Me he sacado el C1 de inglés, y aunque sonará prepotente, es algo importante.
Descubrí Caótica gracias a mi María Limón (que no se llama limón, pero da igual porque es poeta y se le permite).
He ido de manifestación (dos veces en el mismo día) y he gritado por las que ya no tienen voz. Si nosotras paramos, se para el mundo. Alcalá feminista es ahora una realidad
He ido a una boda y a unas bodas de oro.
Me he tatuado los libros y el griego, ¿qué más puedo pedir?
He recorrido Granada y sus callejas; he subido a la Alhambra y he respirado todos sus siglos de historia.
Al final sí que cambie mi cuarto.
He visto Eurovisión en la mejor compañía posible.
He ido mucho al teatro y he visto un musical.
He vuelto a comprobar que lo paso fatal en las entregas de premios y los actos del estilo (aunque la compañía de Fernan lo hace todo menos malo).
He sacado matrículas y le he cogido coraje a un profesor.
He ido a la sierra, he ido a la playa (y he bailado allí bailes del maldito fornite).
He ido de vacaciones solos Santy y yo.
He ido en avión yo sola y no me he muerto de miedo (solo un poquito).
He vuelto a Barcelona y he vivido su noche y sus fiestas (el catalán me enamora una y otra vez); he vuelto a Madrid y me he traído mil postales de sus museos.
He visto en persona el cuadro que Valeriano le hizo a Gustavo Adolfo.
He visto feliz a Santy por comerse una tarta de croquetas.
He aprendido a no tener que ir siempre siempre siempre con mechones de pelo en la cara.
Me he apuntado a boxeo y me encanta.

--
Zack quickly raced toward the dining car, hands still bound in front of him. Throwing a quick glance behind him to make sure there was no one following, he slammed open the door and charged in. Attempting to help hinder pursuers, he reached over to grab a near by stool to block the door but to no avail.
"Dammit!" He muttered, realising they were all nailed to the floor to prevent sliding while the train moved. Weighing his options, he swiftly decided to grab the materia and find a place to hide.
Finding the shelf he hid it behind, he snagged it but as he turned to leave, he noticed a small foot poking out from underneath one of the dining booths.
Grabbing a nearby rolling pin, he slowly moved toward the table. Sliding up against the side out of sight, he crouched down and peaked into the low hiding place only to find a small boy no more than seven years old huddled there, head between his arms and shoulders shaking from the sighlent cries he held in.
Placing down his make-shift weapon, the teen softly gave a gentle "hey..." Startled, the younger let out a high-pitched yelp and dug himself further into his corner.
"It's okay!" Zack quickly told him as he slid up next to him and placed a comforting hand on his shoulder. He opened his mouth to offer words of comfort just as he heard the sound of the car door opening.
"Come out little boy," called out the new guest in the room. He couldn't be sure, however Zack was fairly certain he recognised the voice as that of the intriders' leader and panick quickly swelled within him.
'how did he get past Angeal?!' he questioned as he felt himself begin to tremble with fear. Attempting to think quickly, he shoved the canister that held the materia into the tiny hands of the child that sat in front of him and hurriedly gave him hushed instructions.
"Find a SOLDIER named Angeal. Give this to him. I'll make an opening for you to get out of here-!"
Just as he was finishing his sentence, Zack felt a firm tug at the back of his shirt as he was violently thrown backwards and into kitchen's counter.

Man and what an 18 Months it has been. These little humans do change your life incredibly. How can I describe Jesse?? Well he is a mummies boy, no doubt!! But when he sees daddy, I am sure forgotten. I Love how he runs to me and gives me the most sweetest and warmest cuddles and how he looks up to his daddy with such love and admiration. He is kind and sensible, Yet, at the same time very cheeky. A child who is curious and wants to explores everything. He loves playing with other children. He is very loving. He is not egoistic nor selfish, he will share his toys with you. He loves his food just like his mama. Does a little dance and all just like his mama😅 He doesn't give mummy and daddy any headache. He isn't the sort to cry for no reason or scream around the place and truth be told his never done such (Amen to that👏🏼). He is such a little soldier that even when he ain't feeling well, it won't stop him from giving you the most beautiful sweetest dimple smile. He will carry on with his day like nothing. He is just the sweetest. God truly blessed me with him. I don't know what I've done to deserve such a sweet and kind child. When I fell pregnant I used to pray to Yahweh and ask Him not to send me no screaming and rude baby. So far so good lol. He is very loving and I thank Him for him. I am so honored to be his mama, he truly is the LOVE of My Life❤. The one who is giving me the will to live. I adore him. If God never existed, Jesse would of been my number 1 but he will have to settle with being my number 2. Still a good place to be at😊. I will do anything for him and I promise to make him proud of me the same way I am of him already.
Lord, forgive me in advance for whatever I do to protect my boy. Jesse, son.. You're my most favourite of all time in the history of ever.......... ❤ In God I trust and in Him I leave my boy❤

I looked up and saw H/n walking towards me with two cups in his hands. "Oh you're already awake. That good. Here, for you." He said. "What's that?" I asked. "Camomile tea. For your headache." He said. "How do you know I have headache?" I wanted to know. "Just do." He smiled. I asked him why he was there and he told me what I did yesterday. "Oh god...how embarrassing!" I said. "I'm so stupid! God H/n I'm so sorry I didn't mean to..." He cute me off. "I know, don't worry." He said while drinking his tea. "Did you spend the night here?" I asked and he nodded. "You wanted me to. I was about to leave but you said I should stay." He told me. I can't remember anything! I was so drunk that I don't know what I did. Girl you're so stupid!! "But what I want to know is why?" He asked. "Why what?", "why did you got so drunk? I thought you're not that type of girl." , "I wanted...ugh...never mind." I breathed out. "No tell me. I can see that something's bothering you." He looked at me, so I nodded, took a deep breath and told him everything that happened yesterday. "I just wanted him to feel like I felt you know..." I explained. "Oh..I'm really sorry for that." He looked at me. "No...it's okay I guess..." I looked at the ground and got tears in my eyes which I wiped away. "Come here." He took me in his arms and held me for almost ten minutes. "This is not fair. You don't deserve to be treated like that! No one deserves it. I understand that you wanted to hurt him too but I can tell you that's not the right way to do." He explained. "What should I do then?" I asked. "Nothing! Just be yourself and be happy. Show him that you can live without him and that you're better without him! That will hurt him even more than when you cheat on him." He told me. "You really think?" I asked again. "Yes! Trust me, he'll regret what he's done and that he lost someone so special like you!" He smiled. (More in the comments)

Had to share this beautiful poem my sister in law @georgiana.anstruther_sculpt wrote about my dad @richardbranson to inspire her daughters to never give up on their dreams and to not listen to those who say they aren’t possible. Well done Giana, just beautiful! 🙌🏼 Once there was a little boy.....
He owned a little rocket toy.
He dreamt and dreamt that one day he
would go to space to see what he could see.
He would build a supersonic jet
and go as far as he could get.
His other friends thought this was cool,
Until aged 16 and they left school
And gave up on their childhood games,
Deciding they had other aims.
But for the boy he held his dream.
Deciding he would need a team,
Worked night and day to find a way
No matter what they had to say.
He built some businesses doing this and that.
And saved some money under a hat.
And when the hat was nearly full
He decided to tell them all.
How they laughed, how they mocked
But he was not afraid or even shocked.
He gathered together the perfect team
To help him realise his dream.
Scientists from round the world,
Special metals to withstand the cold,
Computers and other such things.
Soon his heart began to sing.
He had begun to build his rocket
No matter if they tried to knock it.
He knew that he would one day be
Soaring in the galaxy !
He work on this through many years.
Blood and sweat and many tears,
Never did he give up once.
And after months and months and months,
And years and years,
highs and low and some more tears
He ignored them when they told him ‘no “
“Why not give something else a go...
This game is for a little boy!”
......He would not let them steal his joy.
And then one day in mid December
A day they will all remember.
The crowds they gathered in the Mojave
They could only imagine the sight they would see.
With tears and sand in his eyes
The boy looked up unsurprised
Because you see he always knew
That his dream would come true.
And Up it went .....his galactic craft!
This time no one laughed
Just joy and love on every face.
As the boy’s rocket went to space 🚀🌟

Soy feliz porqué tengo muchas cosas buenas aunque pocas veces las vea
A pesar de crecer sin el apoyo de un padre,
Tengo una madre que ha llenado doblemente ese vacío.
He vivido mi vida
A mi manera.
Soy feliz porqué tengo lo más importante a mi madre, mi familia y salud
He vivido mi vida a mi manera.
Sin importarme las críticas, las caídas y derrotas
Me he levantado mil veces y soy feliz.
Me han juzgado y criticado
Me han odiado y he odiado
Pero he vivido mi vida
A mi manera.
He ganado y he perdido
He sufrido y he soñado
He caído y me he levantado.
Pero a mí manera he logrado
Cumplir mis metas a pesar de los obstáculos, lágrimas me han costado
He viajado y he soñado
He amado y he sido engañada
A mí manera.
Perdí a muchos seres queridos en el camino de la vida
Pero he seguido adelante y ellos conmigo han estado
Como ángeles que me cuidan y protegen
A su manera y a la mía.
El final puede que este cerca y soy feliz
Porqué he vivido mi vida.

Well, allow me to explain. (Y/c) works as the professor of a rather large highschool. Deep into a crush on the social worker, (y/c) somehow was talked into getting a roommate. How the hell?! Honestly that's a good question at this point. So (you) prepared for the arrival of Yukii. Naturally you assumed by the name that the 17 year old going to live with you was going to be a female. Maybe she would be cute right?
No
As Yukii sat in the back of the black vehicle he ate a candy, something the dirty blonde enjoyed a lot. His beautiful grey eyes glancing around. This was exciting for him. He had been living in a boys home since he was 11, and hearing that he had a stable home was almost music to his ears. Shy at greetings, he was nervous for his arrival. He stood at about 5'4 maybe 5'5 when he was wearing his shoes. He glanced at the worker and then grabbed his bag, along with his safety stuffed animal that a foster parent had given him when he was about 5 or 6. As (y/c) watched the vehicle pull in. The worker got our first and then Yukii followed. He was silent behind the taller lady, his grey eyes only glancing up to meet (yours) then he put on a small smile. "Hello, I'm Yukii I'm sure we will get along great together" he said holding his hand out for a shake. His pretty grey eyes noticing how shocked (y/c) looked. "C-can I see my room please? I would like to put my bag down " he said gently as he stepped inside. (Y/c) couldn't wrap his head around it, finally saying "I thought you were going to be a girl" and Yukii just looked away. His voice was smooth, but not quite as deep as he wanted, like (y/c)'s voice. "Everyone always does" he said as he looked at (y/c) sliding his shoes off politely. That's when (y/c)

So I really want to tell you guys what it was like meeting this wonderful man.

As soon as the line started moving, I peaked around the curtain to get a glimpse of him. I immediately grinned like an idiot when I saw him there taking pictures, and when he glanced up, he noticed me. We made eye contact (first time). I kept staring, but he had to look away to shake hands with new people and take a picture, but as soon as he was done he looked back over at me (second time). This kept happening, and I shit you not, he looked up at me whenever he got the chance and we locked eyes maybe 5 or 6 times until it was my turn.
So, I walked up to him and said, "Hi, Jon!" when I noticed he had his hand up like he wanted a high five. I lifted my hand and when they met he sort of held it for a second, like some half-high five-half hand hold and then it was all static in my brain from there. I think he had said hi back but I can honestly not remember. I was lost in his eyes like some love struck idiot but he wasn't looking there, his eyes were pointed lower and I think he may have been checking me out? (which I am 100000% okay with, I tried to look really hot for him) That's when I blurted out "I love you!" and he goes "I love you back." So I just grabbed him around the waist and hugged him for our picture.
Right there in the picture, I was lost in this weird ecstasy and was contemplating his hand on my lower hip there and how his body felt under my hands. (I know I'm weird!!! But you only get a few seconds with them and I was trying to soak that experience UP!!) If anyone wants to know how Jon feels, he's very thin and soft if you squeeze (which I was) but I could feel he had very defined muscle. His grip (on my hip) was gentle but firm at the same time, like he was being soft but could do a whole lot of Punishing. Perhaps that would explain my face.
So after the picture, we looked at each other and he said "Thank you, sweetheart," in the most gorgeous voice ever and he looked away from my face again (checking me out again, I hoped), and that's when I turned to leave. I made it a good few feet away before the squealing and screaming like a fan girl started.

Dark Pit after awhile decided he would go look for Ventus seeing as a lot of people had been asking what happened to him and at this point even he was curious. No one had seen the guy in 11 weeks so of course that would get people to worry. As he flew around the place he last saw Ven he landed on one of the mountains near the area and looked around. After awhile when he didn't see anything he was about to leave when he saw something moving from the corner of his eye that caught his attention. When he looked he saw it was those weird unversed creatures that Ven normally fought. He decided to follow them and see where they were going. He continued to follow intill he saw them heading to a larger crowd of unversed and at the center of them all was Ventus. He saw them starting to pile up and trap him so he jumped in to help shooting arrows at the ones holding him down. Once Ven was freed he flew down and grabbed him before anymore could pin him down.
Once they were far enough away he placed the keyblader down on the ground before landing himself "Thanks for the save" Ven said to Dark smiling at him "What were you even doing out here to get cornered like that? Everyone's been hounding me about where you've been." He said back annoyed "Sorry I'll explain later. But for now can we just go back to skyworld maybe? They won't come for me up there" He asked while Dark just rolled his eyes and sighed a bit "Fine but once were there you telling me what happened" he said before grabbing Ven again and having Viridi take them back to skyworld -

So um I met my favorite band last night (besides MIW obviously duh). I met Ghost Town and those nerds are such sweethearts oml. I drew my own girl for them and I was at the barricade at the left corner of the stage so like yeah i was touching the stage, and i shone my phone on my drawing and Kevin saw from all the way on the kther side of the stage, smiled so big, RAN to me, pushed all the other girls hands and arms away to get to me, and he pat my head while smiling and singing to me, and then he ran back to the middle of the stage but while looking back at me and STILL smiling at me. And I was the only one on the whole side who actually likes GT and was singing my heart out and jumping, and Kevin kept coming over constantly and crouching in front of me singing to me and he wouldnt break eye contact no matter what and he would always try to grab my hand to sing to me but this bitch kept shoving my arm down and would death grip his hand and he kept fighting to get his hand back but she wouldn't let go (that bitch doesn't even like them wtf) but while that happened he still NEVER broke eye contact with me. And Evan was right there infront of me the whole time, and the WHOLE FREAKING CONCERT he kept deadass staring at me. Like i would see him out of the corner of my eye and then i would go to look at him and then he would turn his head sk freaking fast and he was being awkward and then as soon as i turned my head back he stared at me again. He was so distracted that Kevin had to constantly come over to him to get him back into the music. Then after their set they all got off stage except Evan and he was packing up his dj equipment and i yelled "Evan!" And he looked and yelled "yeah?" And i yelled "you guys were awesome!" And he smiled and gave me a thumbs up and went back to packing up, but that smile never left his face. Then like 10 minutes after he was still on stage and just finished packing up he randomly came up to me out of nowhere and started talking to me. Then he said "you know we're gonna be at the merch counter right?" And i said "really?" And he said "yeah. Go meet me up there" and he smiled and i smiled back and said ok. (To be continued...)

James Donovan was at the local Diner he used to work at growing up. He knew the owners of the little place in the city, some of the people he worked with were still there waiting tables and cooking. This place was almost like his family. James came here for breakfast whenever he possibly cloud. It was his way of supporting the place he loved to be growing up. James often thought about cases he was working when he ate. That was basically all James thought about. He thought about how he could help people and stop people that needed to be stopped. James did not care how he stopped the criminals in his city. He has done things that detectives and police officers would get canned for. He's not afraid to get his hands dirty with the blood of men. As James sat at his usual booth and ate the Donovan Special he looked up and saw an absolutely beautiful young woman eyeing him. She sat on a bar stool at the counter, she put her finger to her mouth and bit down on her nail while eyeing James. He had a mouth full off food and looked at her with a blank expression then made a funny face at her. || The gif face lol || She looked at him with somewhat of a confused face. There was a laugh in the background, it was Christian the owner. James was often flirted with but he would blow them off right then and there. He was not really for some easy bitch trying to get into his pants. Although if he is up for it he may go ahead and play along. James as only been in one real relationship it was with a woman named Aurora Riley. He loved her more then anything but he became obsessed with his work and things did not work out for the two. He dose miss her sometimes but he's almost to frightened to go back. As James thought and continued to eat his food a man with a hoodie walked into the diner. The man had his right hand in his pocket and was looking at the floor to avoid the cameras line of sight. James knew this guy was about to try and rob the place so he stood up and took another quick bite of his food.

Looking down, he knew;
The assumption is that no one but he can use the staff. He watched as a blue light wove throughout the grain of the wood, a weak dim light not as strong as it had formerly been. She had tried to use it--another whistler of the wind. And it had tried to obey. It didn't work--or at least, not this time.
He felt his staff was still warm in the places her hands had been. The longer he held it, the more he felt the cold returning.
This other windcaller--who was she? He'd never seen her before, but in the past his intuition told him someone was near. He'd always assumed it was the Mother herself, but she is not her.
How was she almost successful in using the staff? Where did she come from?

How is she eerily similar to him?
The key difference that separated them was the one thing that made them alike. Except, she was peculiar. She could do all the things he can but use nothing to do them. He was painfully aware that his staff was his lifeblood, and Pitch figured that out too.
Fortunately, the blue magic became stronger as he held it; his power was coming back.
Whoever she was, whatever she is--she is not with him or anyone he knew. Sandy had suffered an attack lately, the battlefield covered in bits and chunks glass, his left arm almost solidified in glass. He now knew who did it.
He knew that she wouldn't give up this easily; she'll be back. But between frost and flame only one will come out on top.
With his ever-radiating confidence he repaired his staff and headed for the sky, determined he will succeed. But, something in his mind sung a different tune. Deep down he knew that she knows his weaknesses. But like everything else, he believed will come out on top. He always has.
Yet this song whispered, and it said it will not be him.

On my way to the airport this morning I met Richard Chow, a cabbie who lives on Staten Island. When I first sat down he asked, "Where are you flying to? You go vacation?" I mentioned I was flying to Louisiana for a wedding, and he replied, "Ah, so humid there. I have a daughter going to Florida State. So humid in the south." I replied, "Yes, and I'm not looking forward to the humidity." After the initial conversation I figured I'd ride the rest of the way in silence, but Richard said, "It been a long time since I been on vacation. Seven years!" He was born in China but was raised in Burma (now Myanmar). His family left Myanmar in 1987 because of the militaristic government. He came to NYC and became a diamond setter. Just walked into a shop in NYC and they trained him on the job. He worked as a diamond setter for almost 20 years, and topped out at $30/hour. Unfortunately, the company he worked for laid him off in 2005 and outsourced their work to India where they paid their workers $2/hour. He said that he panicked and didn't know what to do. He had a young son who was 4 years old and a daughter in middle school. He said he was always a people person so he thought he would try driving a taxi. After the first two days he wanted to quit, and it's easy to understand why. He had to wake up 3:30am so he could drive to the taxi depot to pick up his taxi to start at 5am. His shift was done at 5pm so he had little time to see his kids. He said his wife gave him a "stern talking to" and said that he couldn't quit. He just hated the hours but wanted to do what was best for his kids so stuck with it. Since that first day Richard has moved up in the taxi world. He now owns his own car and has to pay a licensing fee every week. He still has to work seven days a week, to make ends meet, and pay for his daughter's schooling and save for his son's college fund, thus the reason for him not taking a vacation in seven years.

This really struck a chord with me and how much I take for granted. I admire Richard for being able to get away from Myanmar and find great job in this country. I also admire his tenacity to keep doing what it takes to support his family. Thank you Richard

Este año he aprendido tantas cosas que aún me sorprende que todo haya sucedido en 365 días... 🔙📆 Medio año en Inglaterra 🇨🇰 y medio año en España ha dado para mucho.🇪🇸
He aprendido que es posible querer a gente en menos de un mes 💕 y con ello el valor de la amistad buena, la amistad agradecida y la amistad a pesar de la distancia. 👯‍♂️👯‍♂️
He aprendido a ser libre y a quererme, a valorarme y a ser yo, 💁🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️cosa que no ha sido fácil ni rápida. A darme cuenta de lo verdaderamente importante y a quitarle peso a lo que no merece importancia.
No ha sido un año fácil, quien me conoce y ha estado cerca de mi lo sabe bien.
He aprendido como todo se puede tambalear de un día para otro y, por desgracia, también he aprendido por primera vez lo que es perder a alguien querido.💔
Pero también he tachado cosas de la lista de mi vida. He vivido en el extranjero, he roto barreras con el inglés, he comenzado a estudiar lo que me gusta de verdad👠👗👜, he buceado, he bailado 💃🏻(aunque esto no es nuevo), he viajado🌍, he conocido a gente maravillosa que sé que seguirá estando ahí por mucho tiempo, he comenzado y terminado nuevos trabajos y con ello he aprendido a contar mucho dinero como cajera y también a preparar unos cafés maravillosos como barista.☕️🍵
He sumado cientos de kilómetros con una bicicleta de segunda mano 🚴🏻‍♂️y he aguantado muchos días de nubes, viento y frío. ☁️💨🌨 (el famoso weather inglés)
He comido pizzas y bebido cervezas en un parque enorme. 🍺🍕Y también chupitos de jagger boom en la spanish córner del regal. 🤢
He limpiado mucho con cepillo que no me llegaba ni a la rodilla y con el que mi espalda sufría mucho.
He echado de menos y llorado. Pero también he reído y abrazado.🥰 Ha sido un año de bienvenidas y de despedidas. Pero sin duda, este año he aprendido muchas más cosas que todas esas y, por eso, ha sido un gran año. Con todo lo que eso implica.

G R A C I A S a todos aquellos que lo han hecho posible. 👯‍♂️💃🏻👌🏻🎉🎊🤩 ¿Que me traerá el 2019? 🙄❤️

Day 5. SaPa – Ha Giang

Meet the man Sa, one of many inspiring person I met thru out this trip, this guy has the biggest heart, not only he taught himself how to build this entire house himself, he also help other built theirs. -
He told me there were times a big typhoon/storm/flood hit their villages, every other houses were destroyed except his, his family live here for generations, many others left to bigger town and find work there but he insists to stay, to help strengthen the communities he lives in. He said he once saw some foreigners came here to help build houses, help the children and he said to himself he can’t just sit back and do nothing but ask others to help his own people, he should also contribute he is part of this community after all. And so he open his arms and offer his help and services for anything. Others see him do quite well with the guesthouse setup, he offered his advice and even help to build them for free. Many people think he is crazy, helping others to setup business and create competition but he doesn’t care, he said he doesn’t see it that way, he only do what he think he is right, and off he goes and do it. He said if he can help the communities do well, everybody can have a better life. He is just doing his part and he want to show his kids his way of doing things, things not taught at school, things like how to make a living or how to treat others.
-
By then my eyes were all watery, and couldn’t help to drink some “happy water” and cheers for life!
Amazing person you are Sa! If only we have more people like you Sa, think bigger than us, cares for others, focus on improvement not to drill on the mistake the misfortune, blame this or that. Set a goal and do whatever it takes.
Oh... almost forgot one of the best meal I had, Sa knew I don’t eat meat, specially prepared the most delicious dishes for me!
-
We passed by so many villages and these kids were chasing us with the biggest smiles on their face, so we stopped to say hello. At first they were very skeptical about us, won’t blame them, we all dress like from Mars! they loosen a little bit when I offered some vegan lollies from @green_common, and the picture says the rest.

FOLLOWS: "Release" @mr.aidenmathis || Part 1/3: (Daniel is yanked from the vehicle and dumped. He hears the car racing away and quickly fumbles off his hood. He feels as if he needs to get his bearings immediately, AND recall as much as he can about the drive here. He's actually not surprised to find himself fairly close to Grayson Manor -- but this will never do! He rises and starts to run directly away from the manse with as much awkward speed as he can manage. He reminds himself he is currently nearly unrecognizable, which is a great relief. His mind is surprisingly cool and collected as he heads down the road, leaving the house far behind him. There is no reason he can think of for him to go to the manor. He knows for certain he hasn't even been missed, a fact he's been aware of during his entire incarceration. Thinking, Daniel decides to seek a place where he can try to phone Amanda Clarke Porter, Jack's wife. He wants to tell her everything he knows, and ask for her help in rescuing Jack. If he can't reach Amanda, he'll immediately try Nolan Ross. Then he suddenly realizes he's wearing a backpack over his hoodie! He steps aside in an area hidden from the road, and wiggles it off. Inside is an unopened bottle of water, his wallet (!), his cell phone -- which is only barely charged -- an unexpected photo of him sitting on the floor with Jack cradled in his lap, and his iPad -- also close to dead. Several twenties have been shoved inside the wallet, but there's no sign of a charger. He's thirsty, and gulps water. He wonders if he has enough power to phone Amanda and decides to try. He calls several times, but there is no answer. Then he rings Nolan with the same response.) To Be Continued 1/3

I really don't know where to start since I know I could legitimately write 10 pages about this man and how much he means to me. in this picture he was probably 19 or 20 (in response to the X on his hand). now, he's 28 years old. he's lived on this hectic and confusing earth for 28 years. if you really listen to their music (no phun to blurry), you know that this boy has gone through so so so much in his life. he's battled so many demons on his own, then met his best friend and battled them with him, and has been helping thousands of others battle their own on the way. one of those thousands happens to be me. honestly, I seriously do not know where I would be without tyler joseph and the music he has created. his music helped me through one of the darkest, hardest times of my life that I would most likely still be stuck in if it wasn't for him (and josh). anyways though, Tyler. he is such an inspiring, amazing, selfless, creative man among so many other things. every single thing he does, he puts his entire heart into it. when he performs, he makes every single crowd member feel at home and understood. he supports the clique members every second he can, always recognizing us and thanking us. he knows he wouldn't be where he is without us, but I really really hope he knows half of us wouldn't be where we are without him. he gives us hope, passion, inspiration, happiness, motivation, and so many other things. I never thought anyone else could be feeling what I feel, but when I listen to tyler's words I know he knows exactly what I've been through. he makes me feel like I'm not alone. he gives me hope that I can make it through the darkness and take control of it. I could never ever thank him enough for everything he has done for me in these last two years. I'm so glad I am able to call myself a fan of his and his music. I'm proud to be part of the clique. I'm so proud of everything tyler joseph has become. he's a truly spectacular person. we've made it this far, kid. happy birthday. |-/

After a long class period, Diego and Fran walked out of class together. All Fran could think about was what Diego had said to her. It was time for lunch and everyone was at their own table. Everyone except for Diego. He was the new kid in town. No one knew him or his past which was something that he wanted to hide especially when it came to finding out more about him. Fran was looking at him from afar. She knew his secret since he told her and only her. He gave her a little hint about his past really. He didn't want anyone especially her knowing what he was like before he came there. Sat down at the table that he found Leon sitting at. He didn't say anything to him and he wasn't planning on doing so. He just wanted to know more about Fran while on the other side of the room, Fran wanted to know more him. Ever since he told her something in her ear that's all she wants to know since she really finds him interesting now. Diego has changed since he moved here. He was forced to. He still had that side of him that got him kicked out of his old school inside of him and he wasn't planning on bringing it back to light. He liked Fran very much and he knew that but he wasn't going to act on those feelings. Or so he hopes that he won't. “So how was class with Fran?” Leon asks him. Everyone knew that Diego was sitting next to Fran in class even kids who weren't even in their class like Leon. “It went great.” Diego tells him. “Fran is a mystery.” Leon says. “No one knows anything about her.” Diego looked back to Fran intrigued by her now. No one knew anything about either one of them. He wanted to act up on that and find out more about Fran. Especially since he noticed that she was looking at him too. ~ Sorry for not posting on this account I was just taking a break from writing. Anyways this chapter isn't really good and I want to make the book shorter so it has 7 more chapters to go.

─────────────────── → A young blonde man was walking among the town's crowd, making his way to the store. After another hard day of work he made the resolution of finally taking all the money he saved up for his great adventure, and spent it on the surveys he needed before leaving. After some walk around the around the market and some negotiations with the merchants he got all the things he needed. Before any chance of regret could appear he ran towards the dungeon.
The boy known as Alibaba reached the huge and magnificent building. He went all the way upstairs skipping steps, until he finally was at the top, in front of a marvelous gate, the door to the inside of the Dungeon. The door that would open path to his adventure. "Just a small touch..." That's all he needed. The smallest contact with the door would throw him inside the Dungeon, and once inside, there wouldn't be a chance to come back. He extended his hand towards the door, but just before he could go inside all his doubts came back. Would he/really/be able to do it? Could he really defeat all that kind of creatures that he read in Sinbad's adventure? What if he died? No, he definitely couldn't die yet!
His hand trembled. Maybe he could take more time... Keep preparing himself... Before he could acknowledge it, Alibaba was walking down stairs, going back to his temporal home. He sighed looking down. " I'm such a coward..." He muttered to himself, as he kept walking in the dark night.
Maybe someday, he'll finally have the courage to go Dungeon diving, and make his dream come true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I heard their voices faintly behind me on the train, explaining to him he had to get off because he didn't have a ticket. With polite urgency he asked if he could stay on, he didn't have money and just wanted to get out of the flash flood downpour and back to Dallas. I turned around. Our gazes met. He was young. Sadness filled his eyes. My heart instantly heavy for him. I listened to the police for a minute more, explaining how he had to get off at the next stop. I had an extra commuter ticket, why not? I asked if I activated it on my app if he could remain on until his destination. They said yes. We met eyes again and he smiled with relief and a timid thank you escaped his mouth. Shortly after he came to sit on the bench ahead of me. We talked. He was a sweet soul. I asked questions. He gave answers that broke my heart. He was 18. My brothers age. The streets are his home, between Fort Worth and Dallas. Aged out of the foster care system. He hoped to make it back to California one day where he was born. Maybe find his family. My gut churning . He had an electric smile. We laughed. Talked out the Cowboys. He's a fan now since he's been in Dallas. I asked if he ever played football. He said he didn't. He moved homes too much to play. His eyes showed disappointment as he looked at me and said "I bet I would have been good. I'm really fast ma'am." Holding back back tears I saw him as a small boy, just wanting to play. I could feel that spirit in him. The little boy whose childhood was stolen. What I would give to have given him a home. To show him he is worthy of love and belonging. All I could give him were the few dollars I had before I walked off the train to my babies at work. It killed me inside. I cry for him as I write this. Not for any praise, but to ask. What are we doing friends? There are far too many T's in this world. We are so caught up in the cultural trap we miss them. I was bummed I forgot my headphones on the train so I could listen to a book or watch videos. But if I'd had them I would've checked out and missed T. Don't miss a chance to love on T...

Where Kitty has to search for writing prompts because she's bored and has no creativity atm.

Prompt: “You are a kid's imaginary friend. He's growing up. You're fading away."

⠀⠀I've stayed by the boy's side for as long as I can remember. He was an unsettled child since the moment he could think and process, creating an imaginary entity to ease his distress. He made me. He shaped me into the form of a superhero, a hero who could help only him through his troubled times.

⠀⠀The boy seldom smiled, but when he did, it was when he would see me wherever he went, whether appearing beside his empty desk at school or holding his hand during his therapy session. Often, it led to dramatic accusations of his fellow peers that he was insane. He wasn't, but there definitely was something different about him that caused the boy to remain alone on the sidelines while the others played and ignored his presence. He continued to wet the bed even if I slept beside him, he kept his toys and crossword puzzles that eased his anxiety, and he spoke to me on a daily basis in spite of the people who watched him. It wasn't until he began to periodically meet up with a psychiatrist, is when he began to improve.

⠀⠀Three times a week is when I'd sit beside the boy when he was frightened or shy. I want to say he was progressing... and he was performing better academically, learned to properly read and form daily habits, but... he's maturing, and so is his mentality. It isn't like I don't want his social life to improve. I want the best for him. That's what superheroes do. I helped him throughout the toughest moments of his life, helped him gain the courage he needed to wake up in the morning and cheer him on when he did his classwork.

⠀⠀Every month the boy began to change for the better and I'm so damn proud of him. He didn't scream or throw fits when he couldn't do something. He learned to memorise and solve more puzzles. He found out who to talk to and how to converse. Soon, with each visit he did better and better. And each day he thanked me for it until I didn't have to save him anymore. His stuffed animals had been forgotten. His fits were long-gone. [C]

He viajado mucho a ciudades que me han gustado mucho. Lo he pasado fatal y genial, incluso a veces al mismo tiempo. He estado con los de siempre, he conocido a gente que ojalá todos pudieseis conocer, y a otra a la que más me hubiera valido no acercarme. Me han querido mucho y muy bien; he querido mucho y muy bien. Me han aportado cosas buenas y malas, y de todas he aprendido. Me he sorprendido de mí misma y de lo fuerte que puedo llegar a ser, incluso cuando creo que no puedo más. He probado cosas nuevas. Me he propuesto metas que poco a poco he ido cumpliendo. Me he frustrado más veces de las que he acertado, pero jamás me he rendido. He cambiado las cosas que creía que tenía que cambiar. He pedido perdón cuando me he equivocado y he sabido aceptar una crítica constructiva. También he perdonado cuando las disculpas eran de corazón. He visto mil películas y series. He visto lo que es una relación de verdad, y tristemente, también lo que no lo es. He comprendido que no puedo hacer nada en cuanto a cosas que escapan de mi control y por lo tanto me he liberado de muchas cargas que tenía. He compartido mi tiempo con quien yo he querido y he aprendido a decir que no y a priorizar en mí. He descubierto música nueva. Me he sacado un máster y he empezado a trabajar. He ayudado a quien he podido, incluso a quien no se lo ha merecido, pero me quedo con la satisfacción de no dejar de hacerlo y ser fiel a mí misma.
No sé. 2018 me ha hecho crecer muchísimo en todos los sentidos. 2019 ya solo puede ir pa mejor.

Gracias a todos los que estáis y se nota ♥️

Honesty is a gift these days, if you receive it, be thankful because it comes hard. Anyway, I digress. Back to the point of this post. My hubby @addaiteam is the “photographer” of the family in that he loves to capture moments. I am the one who will likely forget when we are out and about to capture moments and I’m soooo thankful for him! There are memories he’s captured of our kids that have brought me to tears years later, because I would have all but forgotten if not for him. Anyway, I have learned to let go of the idea that he will make sure the pic is perfect, especially with me included. Some women may think, “My hubby knows better not to post a blah blah blah of me.” Fill in the blah blahs with what you want.
But you know what I’ve leaned? Love is super blind! He thinks I’m beautiful. When my hair is not done, I ain’t got no make up on, he says I’m beautiful! Stole the lines from @tamarbraxton 😍. He doesn’t see me through my insecurities with the changes in my body(work in progress after 40, for me at least). He doesn’t see my awkward smile🤣. He doesn’t see any of the other “perceived” imperfections, I, or others may see for that matter. He sees me. He sees the person he married. He sees the person he loves the hell out of. And I’m thankful because that’s his honesty shining through. I more than feel his love for me because he demonstrates it in many ways beyond the pixels. But he really does make me feel like I’m the prettiest girl in the world @tamarbraxton. So the next time your hubby puts you out there “looking cray” just know he doesn’t want anyone else looking at you!😂 Kidding! I’m #comptonsfinest to @addaiream. He knows my love language is words of affirmations, so he’s used this hashtag to describe me in a nutshell. Good job babe😍😘. Happy Sunday guys! And ❌❌❌❌❌ WHO CAN RELATE?! . .

He makes it seem like it’s always your fault in the relationship.
He always tries to pin the blame on you. He makes it seem like everything in the relationship is your fault so that you will be guilted into trying to fix all of the problems that you’re facing.
He makes it seem like you’re being crazy with your accusations.
Whenever you try to blame him for something that is worth calling out in your relationship, he’s going to act as if you’re just being crazy. He will try to convince you that you’re only imagining things and that all the problems in your relationship only exist in your head.
He will want to make it seem like every bad thing that he does in the relationship isn’t his fault. He’s going to want to play the victim so that you take pity on him and so you won’t be placing any kind of blame or guilt on him.
He really makes you feel guilty whenever you screw up or commit a mistake. And he doesn’t let go of any of it. He really holds these grudges to make sure that you always stay guilty.
He will always make it seem like you’re not doing enough in the relationship. He’s going to make you feel like you aren’t good enough to be with him. And he does this to guilt you into doing more and being more in the relationship.
He doesn’t really give you any sense of security in the relationship. He really doesn’t make you feel safe about being with him. He doesn’t stay consistent enough to make you feel like he’s going to be someone you can always rely on. He doesn’t give you any sense of dependability.

Bless the Lord, my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, my soul, and forget not all that he has done for you. He forgives all your iniquities. He heals all your infirmities. He redeems your life from corruption. He crowns you with mercy and compassion. He satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. The Lord performs deeds of mercy, and justice for all who are wronged. He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the children of Israel. The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, nor will he keep his anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our iniquities, nor has he rewarded us according to our sins. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward those who fear him; As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our iniquities from us. As a father has compassion upon his son, so has the Lord compassion upon those who fear him. For he knows what we are made of, he remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so shall he blossom. For the wind passes over it, then it shall be gone. And its place remembers it no more. But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity to eternity upon those who fear him, and his righteousness is upon sons of sons, upon those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments. The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all. Bless the Lord, all of his angels, who excel in strength, who do his word, heeding the voice of his word. Bless the Lord, all you his hosts, you ministers of his, who do his pleasure. Bless the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the Lord, my soul.

Juliet still couldn't believe it. The tears started to roll down her cheeks.
Shawn wanted to comfort her, but he couldn't. He didn't know what to say. I mean, what could possible make this situation seem any better? Their little girl was gone, and who knew who took her. The room was silent.
As Juliet cried, Shawn pulled her closer, hugged her, and rubbed her back.
He wasn't crying, but he certainly felt empty inside and just as horrible as Juliet did.
"It's my fault. Oh my gosh, it's my fault." Juliet sobbed suddenly. Shawn shook his head.
"No, it's not. Don't think like that. There was nothing you could've done." But deep down, Shawn couldn't help thinking of things that might've changed the scenario. If only he would've checked on her earlier. If only he would've heard someone enter their house and take her. If only....but that didn't change anything.
"Juliet, we are not at fault here. However, I will not stop searching until we find her. I will stop at nothing to get our little Cassie back."
"I know," Juliet said quietly, "and I will do the same. But we have no idea who took her. Or where he could possibly be. All we know is a name. A stupid name!" Juliet couldn't help herself, she was full-out sobbing.
"Hey, hey, it's okay. Stay strong. I promise you this will all be okay." Shawn tried his best to make her feel better, but if he couldn't even make himself feel better, how could he make her feel better?
At that moment, they heard the doorbell ring.
"I got it," Shawn said quietly, though he certainly did not feel like talking to anyone.
He went downstairs and opened the front door.
"A delivery to Mr. and Mrs. Spencer," said the delivery man, holding a package. He handed the small, lightweight package to Shawn, who was quite confused.
"Thanks," Shawn called as the man left. He stared at the package. He hadn't ordered anything lately. Perhaps Juliet had.
"Jules," he called, surprised to see her already walking down the stairs. "Did you order anything?" He asked her. She shook her head.
"Then who is this from?" Shawn said, holding up the package, but again, Juliet shook her head. He shrugged. {more in comments}

Anonymous: Bank. Can you please tell us about BamBam? I want to know how he act/think when fans' not around, because I just don't feel that I can trust him. It seems like he have two personality, But I'd want to trust him more. Therefore what should I do?

Bank: Seriously, Bhuwakul family never FAKE. Bambam maybe behave different from others but it is because he used to be Rain's fans before he became famous (actually Bhuwakul family likes K-POP) and Bambam understand fans' feeling whose always support but very difficult to get into somewhere near and talk with their favorite idols.

Even now Bambam is well-known, but he never forget those feelings. Do you know Bambam always check IG and Twitter? Why? Because he want to know about Thailand's trends. 'What Thai people likes or what in trend words, and even what should GOT7 do to catch fans attention. Are there any problem or any quarrel' He always asked me through LINE. Even the Thai song dance performance at Fans Party, I could tell you that he worked all by himself without JYP's order and teach the members how to dance by himself. BamBam worked hard because he knew that fans liked it, even it make himself don't have any time to sleep (Thanks to Jackson that always help my bro.) Afterward, Bambam never feel that he's noble or celebrity, include our family. We just do the same way as before walking in the shopping malls, eating food at roadside restaurant, go to play games at game center, but for BamBam it's hard chance to do that. When he get back to Thailand he just want to do his best and never show off.
Bambam maybe behave differently, but he always try to reduce the blank space between fans and get closer to them. I can confirm you guys that my brother never lies and pretend, he's honest.

So... If you really want to know Bambam, look at him. What he showed to fans are real. Bambam is BamBam.

Ps. Sorry for some grammars :/ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ แบมแบมยังไงก็คือแบมแบม รักแบมนะ <3

xWe had an amazing encounter today! We were just outside of Astorga about 5 kms away. When a little old man was standing on the side of the trail with a shovel. He asked us where we were from and then he asked for help. He said, “he likes to walk but needs places to sit”. He then asked us to help move a big rock so it would make a seat. He was so full of joy and love and I knew something was special! After we helped him, he started talking to us and sharing secrets of life. He wanted to know our names and he spoke to each one of us in a special way. I felt called to give him a photo of Our Blessed Mother which I have been carrying along my Camino and sharing with other pilgrims and people! He knew immediately who it was and thanked me. He then asked if I was a believer and I said, “yes!” He asked “what faith?”and when I told him Catholic, he said, “I am a Catholic priest!” I asked him for a blessing, he grabbed all our hands and we stood in a circle with Our Lady’s photo right on top of all our hands, it was beautiful. He gave us the most beautiful blessing, we prayed the Our Father together and again he gave us beautiful words of wisdom! A true encounter with God! It was beautiful! Thank you Jesus!! 📌 Sometimes you found him when you are less expecting. Agree?

Cornwall, Ontario, 1950’s


This month, I lost my beloved grandfather. Saying goodbye to him was one of the most heartbreaking things I’ve ever had to do. He was the heart of the family. The pillar. He was humble. He was kind. He was wise.

This photo was taken shortly before he moved to Toronto. He dreamed of owning businesses and establishing a life for himself. His father wished him good luck, and told him he’d never make anything of himself because Toronto would never be the city that Cornwall had become. In a brief period of time, my grandfather helped established and build Toronto’s very own Chinatown (Dundas and Elizabeth). He brought together a community and generously assisted and supported new immigrants and business owners. He was a mentor. He was a teacher. He was the core.

One of my earliest memories of him was watching him shave. Delighted, I’d sit on the bathroom counter beside him while he sang Chinese opera pausing periodically to take a drag of his cigarette. It was our ritual everyday before he went to work. I loved it.

George Ing was a businessman, restauranteur, and President of the Chinese Freemasons of Toronto. He was the consummate Chinese Canadian, who had a passion for basketball (especially the Bulls), Chinese opera, dim sum, grilled cheese and Big Macs. We shared laughs, western sandwiches, even the same birthday. He was my father figure and the only grandfather I ever knew. He was my everything.

Xenon336 just returned from the latest mission to Mars.

He stood behind a podium, ready to deliver a speech to the school auditorium.

The room leaned forward with the electric attention of kids wanting to grow up faster.

“On Mars there are purple skies and vermillion cliffs that span continents. There is an adventure there that never ends. A whole new world to discover and play on. A whole new adventure for humanity. For you. If you’re willing to do what it takes. To give up play. Give up music. Give up stories. Give up silly things and get serious about life.”

Xenon336 continued talking, a bright, shining alloyed thing and his mechanical mouth slid open and shut. Open and shut. Not in time with the words. They hadn’t replicated that trick of flesh, yet.

Robert was in the 3rd row.

He was 9 years old and he finally knew what he wanted to be.

A robot, like Xenon336.

If he worked hard enough, paid enough money, and checked all the right boxes, he could convert into one.

He could have his humanity replaced piece by piece until he was a clicking, clacking, shiny machine.

Robert would be smarter, stronger, and more resilient than any human could ever be.

He would live for 500 years—practically forever.

The next morning, he checked off the box for “robot” on his application for 5th grade.

It would guarantee he got accepted.

Now he just had to sit still, get all the answers right, and get rid of his body.

Every year from here forward he’d get closer and closer to being a robot.

Pieces of him would be replaced by metal until the only organic parts of him left were his brain, converted to a cold-state quantum computer, and his heart, still the best tool to pump fluids through his body.

Sinews and other matter deemed useful by the cyborg committee would be left to do things he didn’t know about and didn’t care about. Like they did already.

By the time he was 18, he would be a robot.

He’d have his whole life ahead of him.

This little guy has transformed my life with his powerful, fiery but gentle spirit. Poppy is an incredible bun and I'm lucky to be his human mama. He's so gentle and loving, so curious and brave, so fiesty and rebellious. He'll climb and jump from anything with his super hops, he'll try to eat whatever he gets his adorable strong teeth on and he'll go out of his way to find the boobie juice Phoenix spits up on the floor. Even if it's dried on the playmat, he'll dig it off! He's so inquisitive and has bonded with cats, dogs and many humans. He's been my bunny alarm clock between 4am and 6am for 4 years, I'm sure he was prepping his little brother to be a human alarm clock. He's the sweetest cuddliest little bun, loves to groom us and although I desperately miss the morning kisses on my head and him flopping beside me in bed chattering his teeth as I massaged his cheeks, he has a massive room for his bunstruction activities now. This little guy has so much soul, he's the reason I decided to be vegan because I couldn't face using products tested on wonderful bunnies like him. He's shown me how rabbits just like us need love, affection, playtime, interaction, a healthy lifestyle - he feels pain and sadness, he gets angry and scared. Rabbits aren't for sticking in a hut outside and checking on once a day, they are for loving. They need more than most understand but give back ten fold with their amazing personalities. I love this little bunny, he makes a huge difference to my little world and I hope his fluffy face, luscious whiskers, bunny mouf and self service nom videos make your day a little brighter too ❤️

Me on father’s day: “Hey JT when you met me did you think, I was a daddy’s girl”?
JT’s answered after laughing: «Definitively»
Well I am definitively a daddy’s girl, we always had a very close relationship I admire who he is, and the way he hold himself accountable, his charisma his elegance his dedication to what he believes is right and his perseverance in everything he started as well as his level of excellence.
Since young I was always at his arm, never embarrass of him far from it I was proud.
He traveled across France & Europe for work and every time I got a chance to sneak out of school I will go with him, we will drive for hours, discuss, laugh, discover, I was his co pilote. Since young if I needed him he was there. He Spent 6 hours with me in this Italien boutique, giving me his advises the day I picked my wedding dress and “what a dress”. What a man!
So one day when I told him that I did not think I would get married because I rather stay alone that be in a mediocre relationship, he secretly intensified his prayers regarding this matter.
This picture for me say it all, the day of my wedding like always he was there to allow me to stand tall and shine brighter, doing his very best (and because he is amazing his best is always excellent)
That day not once I had a heart bite jump, people were surprised at how relaxed I was. I organized a 3 days wedding and I did not have a wedding planner but I had my dad, he took care of everything, with love and « firmness ». In this picture we can see him by my side, taking care of me, passing the hair pin to my hair dresser. And when I asked him ( being already 45 min late for the ceremony) what time is it daddy he answered with a smile: « oh princess it’s just time for you to go get married ».
When I first moved to the US I cried a few times at night because I missed him but God is faithful he made a way.
Happy father day all year mon Papou d’amour. He is the reason why I have been bless with the amazing husband I have today his faithfulness to the lord his prayers for his daughters.
Funny anecdote he never used to give a second look to any other man who turned around me, but for JT he knew.

I love a man who tickles me awake with reality, and kisses me goodnight with fiction
Braids my hair with simplicity to compliment my contradiction
And calms the waging wars inside with a simple boyish look
For he is as much a mystery as he is an open book
When I am at my worst, I am beautiful by his side
He draws me in yet keeps me free, the moon to my tide
He relishes my quirks and antics just as much I love to keep him frantic
And if I ever fall, he doesn’t catch me right away
Because he knows I’ll glide
And even more so, knows how much I enjoy the ride…
With the strength I lack, he holds my insecurity safe in-between his fingers
And if there is ever a doubt while I am out running about
His steady grip lingers
He drives me crazy just as much as he keeps me sane
And has the wisdom to keep me wild knowing I’ll die if ever tame
So when I am far, he frets not, because he knows he’s my favorite destination
If ever I am down, he joins me on the ground and points out my favorite constellations

He catches my sighs and lackluster replies
With ageless humor and tenacity
I draw blanks at his capacity
And challenge his audacity
But
He wins because despite my stubbornness he is persistent
Yet forever fails because he belongs to nonexistent #reallove #complisity #him #lost

"Ayye bro, good to see you." My best friend Andy said. We both live together in a big house in L.A. "Good to see you to mate." I smiled. "So, tell me how was it?" He wanted to know. "One sec, I'll just put my stuff in my room, after that I'm gonna tell you. I have a lot to tell." I said and he nodded. I walked upstairs to my room, opened the door and threw my bags in it. Then I lied down on my bed for a minute and went back downstairs to Andy, who was sitting in the living room watching TV. I sat next to him. "So, how was it?" He asked turning off the TV. "It was fantastic! The beach, weather, food, people just everything! Was great, I really needed the time to relax. And I met a really nice girl there." I told him. "A girl? Alright...keep speaking!" He smirked. "Her name is Y/n and I met her at the beach. She was really nice and cool...." I told him everything about her and the time we spent, that she likes to play soccer and basketball and also what happened at the club. "Damn dude..that's nice!" He said and I nodded. "And you know what's the best thing about her?" I said and he shook his head. "She likes me for who I am, for the real me. Not for the one everyone knows. Everyone knows me because of Magcon. I'm always the guy from Magcon. But she...she doesn't even know that I'm H/n from Magcon." I told him. He looked fascinated. "That's good man, I mean from that what you just told me...she seems like the perfect girl. Maybe she is the one you're searching for so long?!" He told me. "Maybe, but there's one problem..." I pause. "What?" He asked. "She has a boyfriend...and the thing is, he's not even good for her. He only hurts her. In the morning after the club she told me what he did and man I got so angry about that, cause she was crying and it kinda upset me to see her crying even tho I didn't know her at all." I explained. He listened to what I said. "You have to show her that you're the right one! Better than her boyfriend now." He told me. "And how?" I asked. "Just keep being yourself. That's what girls like the most." He said. I nodded. "Thanks man, you're awesome." I said. "I know." He smirked.

Here I am with Scott in Costa Rica, Aug2016, six days into his sobriety. I 100% went into this trip expecting party Scott, as he was going through a rough patch. Me being me, I reached out to help, as we had been friends for years. I saw (still do see) a lot of pre-sober Krissy in him. We spent that week talking about mental illness & addiction as we explored.

He didn’t drink once. He left Costa Rica 10 days sober, something he had never been before. I expected he’d drink soon. But he didn’t. In fact, he stayed sober for well over a year & helped a lot of other people in their sobriety. I don’t know when he relapsed, bc he hid it from me. I feel like I failed him somehow.

Scott killed a 24yo named Jakob driving drunk in Sep, a few days after my wedding that he attended. I found out on my honeymoon. It absolutely fucking crushed me.

I went down to visit him over the weekend. He’s going through A LOT right now. We think that it will further aid in his recovery/rehabilitation to receive mail: GOOD AND BAD. He wants (I think he NEEDS) all your thoughts right now, whether they are supportive ones or you have nothing nice to say.

I’ll leave you with this...
I encourage you to be harsh with him if you want, but it has to come from a place of love.
It can’t come from a place of hate.
I don’t think I have to explain that.
He FUCKED up.
I’m so disappointed.
Sad for his family.
Especially heartbroken for the lost life & those suffering as a result.
But.
This tragedy can still have one positive outcome: a second chance for Scott, an addict/alcoholic, at life.
I can assure you that he didn’t want to live prior to this happening.
But he’s waking up thankful for a recovered life, ready to serve out his deserved punishment.

I have been convicted of 3 DUIs & have injured friends driving drunk. I was given the chance to turn it around.

Happy to answer questio

He can eat more spaghetti bolognaise than anyone I've ever seen.

Once when we were little, he professed that he was so tired he was going to fall asleep in his soup (which he didn't want to finish). I leant over and helped him out, pushing his face down. He was very angry but it's hard to take someone seriously when their face is covered with tomato soup.
🍃
When I told him that I'm gay, he didn't hesitate before saying, "I didn't know. It doesn't change anything." He was also the first person to make a joke about it. It took him all of three minutes.
🍂
From the shore, he has watched me struggle in a surf-ski to clear Camps Bay's freezing waves and fight the one-sided pull of a jammed rudder in Plett and whenever his friends suggested they help me, he stopped them, "She must learn."
🌱
Two years ago, we had an argument about free range eggs and I started crying - not a gentle-tear-rolling-down-my-cheek cry, a gasping-for-air weep. He hugged me and said, very kindly, he didn't think I was crying over eggs. Between sharp inhales, and scrambled eggs, I eventually gathered myself enough to explain that I was scared. Scared of putting myself out there to meet other gay women, scared of being rejected, scared of being so different … He sat with me and we came up with a plan.
🌿
He makes me laugh – I'm talking you-better-not-have-tea-in-your-mouth laughing – whenever I see him.
🍁
In Japan, I commandeered (scrumped) a boat at one of Mount Fuji's lakes. Paddling backwards with a camera and two heavy paddles proved challenging for me. My brother issued instructions from the shore: "Paddling into the light!" "You're going skew!" "Come back, we have to catch the bus." Eventually, I shouted back, "Fuck off!" When I finally made it back to land, I apologised for swearing at him, three times. He forgave me quickly. I know because on the long cycle home, racing to catch our bus, he put his hand on my back, pushing me up the hills.
🌱
He is my first friend. 🍁
He helps me help myself.

It’s so crazy to imagine he’s one year away from being a teenager. In my mind he’s still four or maybe five, but definitely not older than that. •
He’s owned my heart since the day he was born. I don’t know how to explain what happened to me the first time I saw him, but I can only assume that it’s a fraction of what people talk about whenever they have their own child. He’s my nephew, but he’s so much more than that. •
He was probably our family’s most difficult baby. He would go 23 to 25 hours with no sleep, sleep for an hour and then wake back up and go full steam for another 20+ hours. I remember he would run from one room to another over and over and then, without warning, he would literally fall on the floor and be asleep. I don’t actually remember him sleeping more than an hour at a time for probably the first five years. Surely he did, but I don’t remember it happening. •
The kid had the cops called on him more times in the first seven years of his life than I have in the almost 32 years that I’ve been alive. It’s almost laughable now looking back at all that we went through with him. •
I remember one time specifically that he stayed with me when he was three years old and within six hours had broken four picture frames, one of my kitchen chairs and the window in my bedroom all without trying. It was like bad luck followed this kid around. It was so wild all of the things that would happen in a room just from him being there.

But, even with all of that, he was still one of the sweetest kids I’d ever encountered. His heart is so kind, his love so pure, his joy so radiant. •
I’m so blessed and so honored to be his uncle and I’m so thankful that God gave him to us and that God let us keep him. •
There were a lot of times we were unsure what the future would look like, but God has been faithful and he’s still ours. Forever and always. •
Last night, I got a text from him with photos and videos of him playing in the band at school and I cried watching them all. This morning, I found out that he had Crystal send them to me from his phone because he wanted me to have them but he didn’t want to do it himself.

Shot taken by me 👆🏼 Here’s a lill story about my parrot which was a gift from my late father in his final days at the hospital. My parrot has been with me for 9 years exactly the number of years my father has been gone. One does not simply understands how much this parrot means to me. My parrot was never friendly with anyone except for me. Therefore, he received much hate from my family and everyone he tried to bite or did bite. But here is where I almost lost a piece of me...when one day I was walking with him on my shoulders, where we were in an open area in front of the sea and he was completely free to fly away but he didn’t! So I sat with him for awhile until I heard all the other birds flying above us as if they’re calling him to join them. I swear I felt that he was about to jump right in the air to fly with them. So I got worried and as soon as I tried to go back inside one of my biggest fears happened...he flew away. He went straight to the sea as if he didn’t know where to fly to. He wasn’t even used to flying for such far distances. He can only fly for a short amount of time inside my house and then he gets tired (Yes I don’t trim his wings). As I was seeing him flying towards the sea far away in the sky, my legs were shaking and I was shocked couldn’t believe my eyes. I froze in my place starring at him up in the sky as he’s flying even further. All I had in my mind was hoping that he doesn’t get tired mid air and falls in the sea. I also thought about how we didn’t even get to say goodbye and how I wanted him to live happily and freely but I couldn’t do that so he took the chance himself. I was standing there with tears in my eyes and waving my hands hoping that he’d see me and comeback to me, but he stopped mid air with his wings open right on top of the sea, then the winds made him fly back to the ground and away from the sea but not towards me, eventually I went running after the place he landed on and I found him captured by somebody scared like a little baby. I hugged him in my arms and went back inside, but to this day sometimes I wonder was it the winds? Or was it him? I’m thinking it’s the wind. What do you think? 😅

He’s 5!!!! I’m a mom of a five year old this morning and it’s bittersweet. I have tears in my eyes as I write this. There are happy tears because I look at my little boy and how much he has accomplished over his short life. He has worked harder than most children to learn to do things that come so easily. Eating has been his biggest struggle and he has now been eating orally for 6 months on his own without the use of his feeding tube. He also struggled to walk, taking his first steps around 2.5 years and still now requiring braces to help support him but he’s Mobile. But I also have some sad tears because looking back at some of these first year’s pictures, I’m reminded of everything he has endured. All of the times he was poked, was taken from us and went through the swinging doors of the surgery room, all of the time he has spent in the car traveling to/from doctors appointments and therapies often is forgotten. Back then he was weak and fragile, needing so much intervention and support from medical devices. And now he is a thriving little boy. Like any other five year old he is obsessed with cars, trains, watching football with his dad, and playing baseball. He is 5. He is brave, he is smart, he is strong! And he’s all mine... for now ;) #22q #birthdayboy #fiveyearsold @ryangarcia13

This is the original concept artwork for my new series, which I first sketched in Paris♥️🥀 It’s taken me 2 years to perfect this idea. I wanted to do something about love letters + addiction, as I had a pen pal of sorts for a long time I was mad about. He was also a writer.
If you took everything we ever wrote to each other + laid it out on a football field, you’d fill the field. But we had an intimacy online that we couldn’t reconcile in real life.
Most people look at me like I’m a bit brilliant or a bit ridiculous. He looked at me like I was both, happening at once. He put up with none of my shit. Which I also loved. And he understood me. Whenever I was with him, I felt how I felt by the sea, simultaneously small + infinite. Like the world was big and overwhelming, but that it was okay. It was never not gonna be okay.
And I liked that I could send him some drunken existential poetry in a Coolangatta bathroom at 2am, and he would get it on the other side of the globe + make me feel better (with equal parts wit + warmth) and despite him not being there, I would feel less alone.
He was a bullshit artist with a great smirk + a wicked sense of humour. And also a musician + a surfer + a lad + an intellectual. He could have been 5 different dudes. And I think he was torn between what kind of dude he wanted to be. So he opted out of everyone’s expectations + ran away🍃
I think there’s a look a man gives you when he wants you- like he’s thought about you naked + knows exactly what he’d like to do about it. My lovely friend never looked at me like that (bless). For close to a decade, I watched him go from high school sweetheart, to girlfriend, to one lover after another (and multiple in between). Sometimes he looked at me and there’d be a hint of sex + it’d hit me like a tiny electric shock and I’d want him immediately, but mostly he looked at me like he looked at life; he wasn’t sure.
So our love story was one that never started. It exists online somewhere, in between code + keys. But it never became real. So I thought blooming cigarette boxes- an older kind of love letter- would be a bittersweet way of paying homage to a this particular paper romance x

The guy told me he was a really good artist (stating he draws portraits) and he was wondering if we were hiring. I told him we're always looking for new artist. Then I ask if he'd ever drawn caricatures before. He said no... "PORTRAITS, but I could do this pretty easily." Oh Ok ... After he told me he didn't have any pictures of his work on his phone or online I ask if he wanted one. He and his girlfriend said yes. I told him because he was so awesome, he had two choices. Plain or extreme. I could see he didn't want me to draw him funny and didn't want to say that. He said it was up to his girlfriend, because she's paying for it. But she said "Extreme!" really fast. He was like "What?! Really?!" I laughed and got started. When I showed them the drawing she laughed really hard!!! He just looked at it, touching his face.... It was awesome! I'm 90% sure he didn't like it. Plus it didn't help she kept saying "It looks like you." 😂 I wish I could've gotten a picture of him smiling. He had these big buck teeth and defined canines that were awesome!!!! Anyway, I hope you like the drawing #caricature #markerdrawing #themepark #universalstudios #sketched #exaggerated #livedrawing #hikellyimissyou #damiondunn

We found out on Saturday morning that he was sick, and that it was very likely malignant. It hadn't sunk in yet. I'm not able to wrap my mind around him not being. There will be at least 3012 things that I will miss. So far....he didn't sound all tough when I came through the gate. It didn't matter if I hid from him so that I could pop out and see his perplexed face unfurl with relief and happiness that it was me. He didn't make his silly groans and wag his tail in a circle. He didn't bite my forearm gently because he didn't know how else to show his elation and that he actually missed me. We didn't run around for a few minutes until he mellowed out and snuggled with me (one of our faces on the other's chest.) He wasn't ready to do one of his many smart tricks for a treat that always made me so proud (BANG!) He didn't hassle me for a ride or a walk or get into a frenzy when I looked at his leash (even though he wouldn't ever get too far away from my side and the leash was symbolic) He didn't herd me along the trail, always right behind me, even if he was forced to jog. He didn't care if picked up his destroyed indestructa-bone, gently taking it from my hand and harrumphing with a look onto his bed. Didn't lie on his back with holding his toy above his face as if praising it. When asked " who's there?" he didn't go straight into guard dog mode. No wailings at 6 pm for food. He didn't lie in any of his vantage spots where he could watch and make sure all of his people were okay (preferably in one room with one entrance/exit.) He didn't turn all freaky at the appearance of a damp towel or wet hair, no nose-dive into a shoe. I couldn't sneak him a chip and hear him snap it up mid air. He didn't stay close, clicking behind me. Didn't prod me with his nose if he wanted his head or perfect perfect soft pointy ears rubbed. He didn't try to hold hands but slip and still refuse to put his paw down. He didn't get moody tonight. He didn't hold still when I buried my face in his neck gave him kisses and told him he was the best boy, so smart, so handsome, ridiculous, that he was my boo, and that I love him so so much.

Special thanks to @glitch_shine for helping out!
Dave stood shakily, his injured legs not used to supporting the heavy weight of the boy's body. Groaning in initial pain, he stumbled slightly. Hearing a crack from under his numb feet, Dave lifted his foot and looked down, cursing at the sight of his crushed sunglasses on a strange floor. "Guess that was one strife too many..." He muttered, his voice tense and clearly showing his pain. His eyes shifted around to his surroundings. "Where am I?" he thought. "This isn't a hospital." Wandering seemed like the best option, so he took to the empty halls. Strange noises filled his head, some even screaming. Cringing, fear rose in the back of his throat. "Lost, are we, Dave?" an unfamiliar voice rang out. Turning, he found nobody. It was only at this point Dave realized he was no longer hurting; his injuries were already healed. "What the fuck?" He questioned. "There's no way that can happen unless I'm... godammit." He facepalmed. "God did damn it, if that's what you mean." The unfamiliar voice again said, "Welcome to hell, Strider." This time, Dave found a nightmarish version of his Bro looking at him. He wished he could be home. He wished he could be safe. He wished... He wished he could let the real Bro know exactly what he had done... And he got his wish. "Welcome to hell, Bro."

And he saw it was me out of the corner of his eye and turned around and he smile SO FUCKING BRIGHT and said "heyy!" And he went to walk to me but then Manny turned him around and pushed him to the counter. Then when i met Kevin we had a really nice long conversation. He was REALLY interested in me and talking to me and he wouldn't stop smiling the whole time and he DID NOT break eye contact once. He would look straight into my eyes the whole time, even if i looked away or down and he made me blush hella when he did that. And he was so busy and into talking to me that he held up the line for like 5 minutes😂 So i said bye and hugged him and moved over to Manny, and Kevin was smiling and just watched me go over and didnt snap out of it until the next fan said his name for the 3rd time. So then i got to say hi and talk to Manny and Alix for a minute and hugged them and then finally moved on to Evan. He was watching and waiting for me to get to him from the front of the line while i was talking to the rest of the guys. So i complemented him again and he kept blushing while talking ro me and looking away and smiling and then he hugged me over the counter and i laughed and said "that was an awkward ass hug" and he laughed and gestured to the counter with both arms and said "its not me its the counter!🙌" and i laughed and he was trying to still talk to me while i left and it was so cute and his face after he hugged me and i left omfg ill post it. He thought i didn't see his face but momma snuck a pic😏 haha well yeah I met my nerds finally😊

It was a little over a year ago Kevin Robinson left us. I’ve been thinking about how confused and impressed I was when I first met him.
I was freshly called up to do Sprocket Jockey shows for Mat Hoffman. Kevin was an established vert rider and he was generous with teaching me his skills. We traveled around doing shows at fairs for a summer, setting up the ramp and trying to keep our distance from the weird excon-carnies. Being single-mindedly obsessed with BMX and I was completely bewildered by Kevin because he was into so many other things. He told me that at home he worked with his brother as a car upholster. He had the expert sewing skills you needed to sew together new leather seats for cars. After a day of riding shows he would go “out”. He admitted to me that he combed the local papers of whatever town we were in to find the karaoke contests. Even though he had a New England accent he was an accomplished country singer with a convincing southern drawl who padded his meager BMX show income by winning singing contests wherever we went. I was even more in awe of how much I did not understand this guy. One time in a show he did a “front flip flyout” and missed the deck of the ramp. You basically rode up a vert ramp, ditched your bike, did a front flip and landed on your feet like a gymnast to impress the crowd. This showmanship also baffled me completely. But, he missed the deck! Fell 18 feet to the ground and as my heart dropped thinking he was dead he ran around from behind the ramp somehow completely unscathed. He also was a state champion karate fighter. He knocked out a guy in a match (setting a record) in a few seconds with a spinning back hit. He actually tried (hopelessly) to teach me that. I think he also had some weird shoe sponsor… Reebok or Nautica or something [update: it was Britainia]… another thing that was so un-BMX  I just couldn’t wrap my head around it. I spent years trying to rationalize that dude and how different he was from me, yet how we both liked riding bikes (and both ended up on the Hoffman Bikes team).

I say these words over and over again to my kids. (Or some variation of them.) Today at dinner alone...I said it 6 times - yup I counted.
-
Why do I say this to my kids? To remove any pressure for them to try foods they don’t feel comfortable with.
-
For example...my oldest son does not like sauce of any kind but he is learning to eat it. Tonight we had spaghetti. I served the noodles and sauce separately. He told me several times that he does not like tomato sauce. My response? “You don’t have to eat it.” He then asked for a separate bowl and put a bit of pasta and a bit of sauce in it and mixed it together. He then told me, “I don’t think I will like this.” My response? “You don’t have to eat it.” He then took a bite and said, “Yup, I don’t like this.” My response? “You don’t have to eat it.” He then took a second and third bite and after each bite he said “Nope, I don’t like this!” Keeping as serious of a face as possible, I again said, “You don’t have to eat it.” After 3 bites he went on to having just pasta with olive oil drizzled on top.
-
If I had told him he has to try some sauce or he has to eat 3 bites...dinner would have spiralled into a battle of wills. By allowing him to explore a food he doesn’t particularly enjoy on his own, I let him have control over the sauce and he felt safe to experiment with it.
-
Learning to like foods is definitely a process. I always aim to provide a balanced meal that includes at least one food that I know each of my kids will enjoy. Then I sit back and eat my own dinner and let them pick what they want from the food offered with as little commentary about food as possible.
