So, you know how everyone thinks that the Top is his totem, but in the beginning he mentions that it’s actually Mal’s? Well, you see, if it’s not his totem, then it’s not going to properly work for him. Cobb’s totem is his WEDDING RING. Whenever he’s dreaming, he has a wedding ring on because, as he says, in his dreams, they’re still together. In reality, he’s not wearing a ring. During the last scene of the movie? He’s not wearing a ring. BAM, REALITY.
i know all brothers have a history of physically hurting their younger sisters, but now that i think about it, my case is a bit more unique. to reword that, my brother’s methods of torture were a bit more bizarre than those of other 7 year-old boys’.
first, there was that knitted blanket he used to carry around. he would tie it into a sword and whip me in the face with it.
and then there was that inflatable hammer i bought him at the elementary school fair. apparently, i was a human-shaped nail. -___-
but i think the most creative thing he ever did was make a freaking crossbow out of k’nex. no, there was no set manual or instructions for making weapons out of the same material i used to make lawnmowers and electric fans. a freaking 8 year-old figured it out on his own (i should notify the company about that later). it was really complex-looking and you could load the (k’nex) arrows into it, which would then be assisted by a rubber band.
the whole time he had it, he wouldn’t stop shooting me in the face with it. =/
but as time progressed and our toys were given away, the ‘attacks’ were reduced to mutual wrestling and horseplay.
but then there was that one instance a little over a year ago. i was kneeling on a swivel chair when he grabbed both my arms and started dragging me all over the room while repeatedly hitting me on the head with the nerf sword that (oh, suprise!) i helped buy for him.
that said, i don’t really regret most of the childish abuse. most of the time, we were both laughing our heads off anyways. well, except for the crossbow. and the blanket sword. those really freaking hurt.
like, he and aria made out in an empty room in the first ep, so he’s the only one who could know about them. and then there’s that one ep where A sends a typewritten message at the end and the whole ep he’s on his typewriter. then there’s the surprise factor: he’s the least suspected one. noel, caleb, jenna, toby, mona, jason, lucas, and ian have already been suspected (then there’s that possibility it’s one of the girls.. but i highly doubt it.)
and i realized the scariest movies i ever watched were dead silence and feng shui (paranormal activity was kinda.. eh. the grudge and drag me to hell made me laugh a lot).
we decided to watch dead silence and i did not scream.. at all. and i’m not even too scared to roam the house in the dark anymore. something’s wrong with me. I DID NOT JUST MAN UP. i’m going to watch insidious and feng shui tomorrow. and then i’m going to avoid mirrors and wake up my sister so i can go pee pee at night.
You will fail.. if you set yourself up for failure.
Only God knows what the future holds, so how can you tell yourself you’re going to suck?
I’m not writing this because I pity all who don’t have confidence, but because so much talent is going to waste.
When you deny yourself your talent, you’re cheating three people: You, God, and your future fans.
Great talent does not always equal natural talent. People aren’t just born to do great things. Some people work hard and persevere until they get what they want.
It’s a sin to waste talent, because talent is a precious gift given to you by God. Even if you weren’t born with it, that does not mean God didn’t give you that talent. Maybe he’s waiting for the day you work hard to unlock it.
And what do I mean by cheating future fans? If you ask, a lot of dancers will say their greatest inspiration is Michael Jackson. What do you think would’ve happened if Michael Jackson gave up on dancing before he got good? BOOM, a whole lot of dancers today would.. not be dancers. And nobody would be inspired by them. Sharing your talent with other people is a gift in itself, too.
Even if no one believes in you, remember that God has always believed in you, and that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything.
"It’s better to dance badly than to not dance at all."
It’s better to accomplish badly than to regret not doing it at all.
This isn't really a secret cuz I'd tell anyone who asks, so I'm not gonna put it as anonymous. But yea, I'm really in love with this girl right now. I have been for six years now. She's one of my best friends, one of my first real friends, and all the time I think about how much I wanna just be around her. And I hate it. I hate being in love, cuz its almost always one sided for me. I wish I could just stop thinking about her when I wake up and before I go to sleep. I really hate such mushy stuff sometimes. But its been six years, so I don't think these feelings are going away anytime soon ._.
AWWWW! i thinking being able to love someone is already a great thing in itself, even if it’s unrequited.
i just had one where i was trying to be tumblr famous, i was taking pictures trying to be all cute and posted them. then i forgot i wasn’t wearing a shirt in one of the pictures and hella people reblogged before i could delete them.
