Anonymous:
why should i carry on living?

writingsforwinter:

Birthdays. Setting fires. Holding hands. Making stew on cold nights. Mountain climbing. Sleep. First dates. Vacation. Spending the day in bed. Buying wedding rings. Exploring a forest. Playing peekaboo with a baby. Watching someone smile genuinely. Camping. Stargazing. Counting rings on a tree. Realizing that someone loves you. Returning that love. Getting drunk for the first time. Smell of old books. Looking through black & white photos. Learning your ancestors’ names. Laughter. Hot chocolate. The feeling of getting back up after falling down. First day of college. Last day of college. Acing a job interview. Screwing one up and realizing it’s not the end of the world. Collecting shells. Sunbathing. Listening to someone’s heartbeat. Sound of waves crashing against shore. Rain hitting a tin roof. Heartbreak that turns into heart-healing. Your own house. Decorating that house. Coming home to someone you love. Hearing the sound of their footsteps on the stairs. Honesty of fall leaves. Their colors. Fresh snowfall. Singing favorite songs off-key. Seeing love come into someone’s eyes. Watching your parents look at each other like the very first time. Sunrise. Sunset. The way fire burns into ash. Smell of a campire. Waking up with light spilling over the sheets. Breakfast in bed. Living long enough to watch wounds heal over. Change. Wilderness. Forgiveness. Change some more. More change. Spring. Flowers blooming, opening up like you can. Good memories. Learning how to forget bad ones. Warm feet in a cold bed. Sleeping with the only person you care about. Waking up to their mouth and arms. Smiles that reach all the way to the eyes. Letting go of balloons like dead weight. Floating in water on your back. Skydiving. Risk. Adventure. First C on a test. First A. Favorite teacher. First poem. Last poem. Holidays with family. Roadtrips. Changing the sheets. Your father’s gnarled hands when he grows old. Grandchildren. Children of your own. Their first day of college. Their graduation. Their wedding. Anniversaries. Making daisy chains. Smell of freshly-cut grass. Pride. Feeling good about yourself. Loving what’s in the mirror. Not being afraid anymore. No more heaviness. No more grief. Survival. Picking berries til your fingers are stained dark. Frost on windows. Holding someone without sex. Sex with love. The joy of swearing. Counting the years you’ve lived. Another candle on the birthday cake. Another mark of victory. That bellyache laugh that hurts all over. But hurts so good. Breath freezing in winter. Feeling that breath on your skin. Someone’s eyelashes blinking into your palm. Accomplishment. Self-worth. Love. Triumph. Sitting under willow trees without weeping. Apologies that get accepted. Understanding that comes from forgiveness. First fight. First makeup afterward. Less hurt. More good.

Everything.

So I’ve finished Jane by Design this morning and was so disappointed that it only has 1 season. It was sort of Carrie Diaries/The Devil Wears Prada. My otp also didn’t happen. I don’t know but I really like the friendship of Jane and Billy and how I wish I could have something like that. Billy were always there for Jane even if it was running errands, supporting her through this fashion internship, calms her nerves whenever she gets frustrated, telling him her problems and what makes her happy, sad. He knows her maybe more than her own mother. I love how he do things for her even if it complicates some things in his life. I want a season 2 of this. I don’t want Billy to be just the “complicated bestfriend”, I know that he’s more than that and Jane just tried to hide it. And so was Billy, but then he’s with Zoe. Ughhh. Why do I even watch tv shows?

"Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place."
Unknown (via psych-facts)
My favorite Mabastian/Mash scenes from Reign and the many reasons why I shipped them so hard:
Bash challenges Mary in crucial but in a good way. He makes her stronger in every problem that she has.
They save each other. They won’t allow anyone to hurt them.
They care for the people around them. I think they could be also a good parents like in the scene where Mary wants to take out Bash and Francis’ younger siblings.
They risk their lives by being there for each other.
He saved her dog, Sterling.
He respects her. ‘nuff said.
Whenever he holds her, he is very firm but there’s this gentleness in his hold. It just shows that he loves her dearly.
They are so honest with each other even if they know that their statements could hurt. They build their relationship through trust.
Whenever he/she kisses each other, there’s this passion and at the same time, happiness that they feel. I also see that in their eyes. 
The way that Bash proposed to Mary is one of the sweetest scene in Reign.
The way Bash called Mary as his “wife.” Sweetness level: 100%
Bash was the person that Mary runs to whenever she needs an ally.
I also like the way they get jealous. They may tried to hide it but their words and facial expression shows.
But seriously Mary, what happened to the “I open my heart thingy”? And your proposal to Bash? Then you just leave him for Francis? WTH MARY?!
I just want them to be an end game even if there will be a lot of Frary/Benna scenes and even if it will broke my heart again and again.
I also wish that the ending will be different because Mary’s end in real life was not good.

I don’t know but today was one of the hardest day for me. My dog died earlier this morning and I cried so hard even if I knew that I couldn’t have him back. Everything that have happened in the past few years came back into my mind. I don’t know how I can move on. He is very special to me. Both of them, my 2 dogs. I don’t know how will I be able to go home without hearing him bark and asking for my attention. I don’t know how I could forget him licking my feet whenever he goes to our bedroom. I know I still have Max but it will never be the same without him. My eyes are still red from crying but I just couldn’t stop because everything that he do in our house reminds me so much of him. I will miss him everyday. I know moving on is hard but I still want to do it. I hope this broken heart of mine will heal soon. Alei will always be a part of me.

Reign Rant

So I’ve been “addicted” with this series entitled “Reign”, it was recommended to me by my friend who also loves to watch Game of Thrones. I like Mary for being a young woman who stands for herself even if she feels afraid. She’s intelligent, beautiful and caring queen. It just saddens me that she chose Francis instead of Bash (whom I really like btw). I like Bash because he doesn’t take advantage of Mary’s feelings. He was always careful with her and you could see the sincerity in his eyes and in his face whenever he talks to her. He’s been with her through everything even if she always pushes him away. Unlike of Francis who just feels he loves Mary whenever he loses her to Bash. I don’t know why but Mary and Bash is like those of Arya and Gendry feels. Especially of those line like “be my family”. I like Francis but sometimes he irritates me. I also don’t like Catherine, Henry and Mary’s mother. I just feel from the start that I don’t like their characters. But what is a story without these antagonists? Though Mary and Bash are not together since I think the writers sticks with the real story, (Mary married Francis in real life) I still hope that they will be together in season 2 or so on. I also like the costumes in this series. Especially those of Mary’s and Kenna’s. I’m in love with Mary’s wedding gown which is a Monique Lhuillier design. I also fell in love with their soundtrack that I’ve downloaded some of them in my phone. Episode 16 was a cliffhanger and I really hope I could watch Episode 17 already.
