watching the first episode of season 2 of roommate and i’m already a bit mad? they should really back off with the fat jokes especially seho because he ain’t no supermodel either. He should know how it feels like to be made fun because of your weight, I know that so I hate when people do that. Just like in running man where they call no sa yeon tuna noona, i find it highly disrespectful. Especially because she’s older than them, idk why people find it funny making jokes of people because of their appearances. They may laugh and go along with it but that’s because it’s better than to let them see how it affects your self esteem and cry. Some of us don’t have such a high self esteem and for someone to make jokes of our weight is not gonna help. Maybe she’s comfortable with her weight but after some time those “jokes” do take a toll on someone. I really hope they back off on it cause i’m starting to like them but if it continues i may drop this show…again.
“If a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate, would you want to know?”
lol yes, so then i can shave.
One minute, 37 seconds.
My legs are shaking. Holy cow, there is no way I can do this. None.
One minute, 29 secods.
I glance around at the faces surrounding the room. Of course my Meeting would take place in the gross, overcrowded cafeteria.
One minute, six seconds.
Somewhere within these four walls, someone has the exact same countdown on their wrist. They’re going through the exact same pressure as me.
Mom said I should be excited, not nervous. Yet I still find myself wiping my sweaty palms on my dress. I can’t believe she talked me into wearing a dress. I mean, shouldn’t my Soul Mate meet me as I normally am? All plain jeans, blah shirts, and wild brown curls?
Something deep within me tells me to stand up. I do, drawing the attention of my tablemates. They all know too. They smile encouragingly up at me. I chew my lip nervously.
That same feeling pulls me towards the center of the room. My stomach drops away from me as I take a step in that direction.
I continue in that direction. With each step the tempo of my heart picks up.
17. More rapid.
16. It’s racing.
Oh my god this is it. The moment my life changes forever.
My eyes search frantically around the cafeteria, searching for someone who looks as nervous as me. For someone who’s heading towards their future with no sense of direction like me.
The feeling directs me slightly to the left. I turn to accomodate.
5. My heart has given up entirely.
4. I stop walking.
3. Just waiting left.
2. Everything is about to change.
1. Deep breath.
0000 d 00 h 00 m 00 s
Someone bumps my shoulder. I twirl around and my gray eyes meet blue, blue ones.
“Hello there, love. It appears as though we’re Soul Mates then, eh?”
As my words fail me, the only thing I can think is “I’m so glad I shaved this morning.”
“Thats weird…” I checked my wrist, the clock had just hit the 30 second mark but I looked around and there was no one there. I was a worrisome guy overall but I felt justified, I mean today was the day I was meeting my soul mate. Not that I expected my dream girl to be in the storage closet at work but still I was nervous.
Walking out with a box the boss had requested I walked back to my cash register setting it on the shelf. My wrist hit the 20 second mark
Where was she? I could not help but get worried that an error would pop up or that she was gone and my timer would run out with no response. I panicked, I’d change my own fate if I had to. Running out of time I hurried through the back door. There was a park outside and maybe I was supposed to be there to find my soul mate.
A faint ding of the doorbell hit my ear. Wait was that it?? She was here! I turned around running back to the counter. “Don’t worry I’m just in the back!”
I ran out looking at my wrist as it hit zero. Out of breath “Hi I’m Matt!” Sticking out my hand for a handshake it was met by a firm hand. Meeting my soulmate’s eyes for the first time they spoke.
“I’m Steven.” The man gave a smile “It’s nice to meet you.”
I watch my friend carefully. Her excitement is glowing all over her pretty face. Exactly 2 minutes left, she tells me. We’re waiting at the bus stop and the bus is coming in two minutes. I think she hoped she’d meet them on a beach at sunset or something.
”I mean that’s ok - these things can’t always be romantic I mean my mum met dad when he was working at the book store and it’s not like you can plan it to be romantic I just hoped, I mean everyone hopes don’t they-” she breaks off, looking at me awkwardly. “Sorry. It’s just a big day for me you know.” Yes I do know. You’ve been going on about it for the past year. I smile at her.
”Don’t worry. You nervous? You’ll be ok, you always are,” I grin, determined not to ruin this for her. It’s selfish of me to be moody. This is her future being determined. Right here. In now, precisely 1 minute 30 seconds.
She smiles at me, but it isn’t quite reaching her eyes. She’s restless and keeps tapping her foot. Her eyes are wide with.. fear? Excitement? Nerves? Probably all of them and a thousand more things I can’t imagine. She keeps checking her wrist. So do I. The bus comes around the corner. 1 minute 10 seconds.
”Hey. I’ll leave you alone now ok? The bus is here. I’ll sit a couple of seats away, and be there if you need me,” I say, squeezing her arm reassuringly. “Good luck.” I hope it sounded sincere.
The bus pulls up and I climb on first, taking a quick glance at her while I give the driver my ticket. She’s shaking and looks a little green. I want to give her a hug but know I shouldn’t interrupt now. I look at the passengers and it’s full of pensioners. My heart starts beating frantically. What? I can’t see anyone else at the bus stop. But she’s only 18, she can’t end up with a 80 year old.
I turn around and look at her - she’s breathing hard. The bus driver asks if she’s ok but she ignores him. Her eyebrows are creased and her face is flushed. Oh. Oh no. Stay calm. Someone is probably late. I give her a thumbs up and try to smile reassuringly. I think it’s more of a grimace.
I take a seat near the back. Look at my watch. 25 seconds. She sits down a few seats away.
Suddenly a dark shape runs past my window and a boy jumps on the bus. He has that same frantic look in his eyes. I breathe out with relief.
”Yeah get on, we’re running late,” the driver says, taking his ticket. The boy looks around, carefully stepping towards the seats. He’s tall and handsome, holding a sketchbook. I smile slightly; my friend hates art.
He spots her.
His eyes widen as he walks closer, as if being pulled by an invisible rope.
My friend stands up too, that same rope tying her to him.
1 second -
”I was worried the bus would leave. No way could I miss meeting my soul mate!” he jokes, though he looks just as nervous as she. They smile at each other as they both sit down together. I can’t hear what they’re talking about.
I take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Suddenly I’m crying. Hot tears dropping down my cheeks.
I look at my wrist, scratching at it. Trying to get rid of it.
The numbers have never changed.
They’ve always been at 0.Oh my god that last one…. My heart… The feels….
AGH ALL OF YOU WRITE A BOOK THIS VERY INSTANT. PLEASE.
this is beautiful and everyone needs to read it
i hate you tumblr, fucking breaking my goddamn heart
Then, one day, you’re having dinner with a friend you’ve known for as long as you can remember (or perhaps a friend of the family), and you finally talk to them about your counter. You’re crying, explaining that it’s always been at 0, and so you must not have a soul-mate.
Their eyes widen. Tears begin to form, and they throw their arms around you.
"Mine has always been at 0 too."
And that’s when you know…
10 seconds: the doorbell rings, i get out of my chair
5 seconds: i give the man my money
0 seconds: i open the box. it is the most glorious pizza i have ever seen in my life.
Just imagine that when you’re just starting kindergarten and they teach you about the time on your wrist, and you raise your hand in confusion and say “Mine isn’t working.” and one other kid says “Mine too.” And it’s the first kid you met on the first day of school. And your teacher just smiles at you two and you just sit there, young and confused until it sinks in a bit later.
This is my all time favourite post ever
omgs it’s like they don’t know how to read! i even put a sign where you have to put the cash in and they still don’t get it. They ring everything up and then get upset because they’re gonna pay in cash and can’t do it there.
So my grandma watches asian dramas in her country(guatemala) and knows i watch so she was asking me about them. And i would put it with subtitles in spanish and I don’t mind but she doesn’t know how to read. So I was wondering where could I find spanish dubbed kdramas. So far i know she has scene stairway to heave, Boys over Flowers and was currently watching Princess Hours(Goong) but is not gonna be able to finish it. I tried looking but can only find subbed so is there anyone that knows where I can watch them? Thanks
Mi abuela esta de visita aquie en los estados unidos y le gusta ver dramas asiáticos en su país (Guatemala) y sabe que yo miro, y me estaba preguntando por ellos. Y yo le pondría con subtítulos en español y no me importaria verlos asi, pero ella no sabe leer. Así que me preguntaba dónde podría encontrar doramas coranas dobladas en español. Hasta ahora yo sé que ella ha visto escalera al cielo, Boys Over Flowers y actualmente estaba viendo horas de princesa (Goong) pero no va poder terminarlo. Traté de buscarlos, pero sólo se pude encontrar subtitulado así ¿hay alguien que sabe donde puedo verlos?
Watching Season 3 of OUAT and damn so many possible ships,lol
#2 regina/robin hood
and maybe a bit of
because who doesn’t love a good bromance,lol
I am looking through some bra racks and a woman has been glancing over at me every so often before coming over to me.
Customer: *says something I dont hear*
Me: I’m sorry, what did you say?
Customer: Do. You. Work. Here? *gestures to the garments she is holding*
Me: Oh. No I don’t.
Customer: *suddenly upset* Well you should! *walks away*
This happened to me at jcpenney once except i got the death glare and she walked away,lol
to anyone who messages me:
this is easily the most accurate post i have ever seen
THE COLOR LOOKS SO RIGHT
It makes me feel really special when someone messages me.
Today a guy( co worker) told me I looked pretty and that now that he thought about it that maybe he should tell me more often. My first reaction was to feel surprised n happy. But now I feel sad… Because I realized its the first time a guy called me pretty. Maybe he was just being nice but that has been my highest and lowest point of my day.
Watching episode 12(well skimming,lol) i’m not sure how to feel about it. First the male lead is a high school student, underage and not legal(is it repetitive?,lol). Second she’s 10 yrs older, legal and a working woman. Legally this is not right, morally,imo, not good either. He’s too young, too immature and doesn’t realize or stop and think of the consequences of what he’s doing. He didn’t really stop and think how this would affect her, in fact he refuse to acknowledge that she would ever find out. What? he thought she would stay? cause isn’t it also illegal to date an underage kid in korea? She could go to jail or something. He only thought what he wanted and not once did he stop and think how she would end up when she knew she truth, which once again goes back to the point that he’s too young and immature. And then there’s the vampire director guy…i feel sorry for him at times but then he’s a real butthole and i wanna kick his butt,lol He’s like those kids that when they like a girl they pull their ponytails, trips them or calls them names or something. Except this guy is more mean about it, he plays with her feelings for his own gain, forces a kiss on her and then when she seems happy with someone else he decides he likes her. I’m not sure yet if he really does like her or not, cause sometimes I feel that maybe he just feels attracted to her(in a non romantic way) because she offers true feeling of love and friendship. It seems he gets no love from either his parents, with his dad who doesn’t appreciate it(and maybe not his real dad) and his mom is slightly(or maybe not) crazy. The dude get no parental love and the only warmth and care he’s received so far has come from her. So maybe that’s why he feels like attracted to her. Because she offers(or offered) what his parents can’t give him. He doesn’t even have friends either so he lives a sad and lonely life and she’s been the only one to show interest. That’s why he wasn’t able to throw away the bday cake. Because i bet it’s been like forever since someone remember and she did. So at the moment i’m not really cheering for any of the male leads, I find Seo In Guk adorable though but I don’t want for him to end up with the female lead. I want her to end up alone or maybe find a third guy and be happy with him. Both the male leads at this moment are thinking more about themselves,imo, than about her feelings. So like the spanish saying goes,translated of course,lol, “It’s better off alone than in bad company”. I hope this drama doesn’t end with them finally getting together officially after he comes back from the army or something cause then it’s just gonna be as disappointing at FBRS where I still think the female lead should have end up with the pillar,lol*but hey they ended up dating in real life,actually i think they still are dating,lol*
sorry for the long rant,lol
I’ve watched this drama about 5 times(lol) and this scene gets me every single time. I cry my freaking heart out and yet I keep on watching it,lol
if you’ve ever legitimately cried like a fucking baby over a character clap your hands
I need really need to start watching my dramas again, I need my happy place or else these customers are gonna kill me with their stupidness and rudeness.
