Just do it.

Don’t ever talk to me about musicals ever because my responses go from “Meh” all the way up to “I CAN AND WILL SINGLE-HANDEDLY PERFORM THE ENTIRE THING START-TO-FINISH RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET DO NOT DOUBT ME I’LL DO IT”
So one time me and theflanneldude were walking through downtown Seattle and a conversation turned into both of us singing “One Day More” as the most trainwreck duet ever, but on the choral parts we were in PERFECT HARMONY, except that harmony was baritone and first soprano. When we hit the last note, the group of people walking behind us on the street applauded.
runawayjohanna replied to your post:Guys… Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred is the serious…
I couldn’t take her seriously. She wanted too much. Lol.
Dude, the last workout series I did was Tracy Anderson (Gwyneth Paltrow’s trainer), and she was more demanding and less supportive. Also that workout was like, an hour long and ain’t nobody got time for that. Jillian asks a lot, but it’s only 20 minutes. I can put up with anything for 20 minutes.
Guys… Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred is the serious business. That shit is for real.
This is by far the stupidest thing I have ever made.
Bus seats in Finland - for the unsocial people, like me.
Rule number one in Finnish public transport culture: Don’t sit next to anyone. Unless the seats are like this.
In every other cases fill the spots from window seats. Then standing up seats. If the bus gets crowded sit next to someone but sit as far as possible from the other person and turn your head to look to the completely different direction. Don’t say a word.
And if you’re the one sitting next to window pray all the gods that the other person leaves before you, because otherwise you’d have to speak to him/her. Usually it’s something like “Umm..ileavenow”. Remember, no sorries or smiles. Just say it as low and fast as possible without making any eye contact.
legit advise for people visiting finland. that “ileavenow” is “mä jään täs” in finnish. it’s okay if you don’t pronounce it perfectly right because the only reason someone would talk to strangers in public transport is to ask them to move, so they will get the hint.
BUT! usually just things like putting your phone away and rustling your bag and looking like you are about to leave will do the trick. no need for words.
….and this is how you wait for a bus in finland:
Reblogging because of that picture. So true. And familiar.
This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen…what the actual fuck. It almost seems like a joke but I feel like it’s actually serious????
Finland sounds like heaven.
These are some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. It helps that Delling is gorgeous and adorable, but we also had a beautiful sky and a setting sun to mix with my studio lights.
It was a difficult shoot. It was very hot and sticky out. After Delling did their hair & makeup and zipped into their dress—I announced that we had to fill two bags with 40 pounds of sand. These were necessary to weigh down the light stand.
We got all sweaty from lugging around the sand and when we poured it into the bags, it coated us in a lovely layer of dust. After giving me a few grimacing looks, Delling went back inside to fix their makeup and de-sandify themselves.
Armed with two flashes, two battery packs, a light stand, a softbox, two lenses, a camera, a reflector, the evil sandbags of doom, and various flowers—we trekked to my neighbors yard where they have some interesting unkempt stone landscaping.
As I began to shoot, my inexperience directing people started to show.
Delling was like, “Okay, what do I do?”
And I was like, “Make poses and stuff.”
It turns out they required a bit more specificity.
"Do something with your face area."
After another scowl in my direction, Delling started to recall expressions and poses they remembered from magazines.
That actually worked rather well and gave me more confidence to make better suggestions. They probably don’t realize I was using cleverly disguised Zoolander references.
*cough* “Blue steel!”
"Just look like something really sad happened to your left."
In the middle of our shoot, some of the neighborhood kids passed by. One jokingly said, “Hey, can I be in the picture?”
He was a fellow Hazelwood East Spartan so I couldn’t resist getting a shot. Plus he and Delling had bright matching smiles.
In the end, I just had Delling be cute. Not much direction was needed to accomplish that. We got some beautiful pictures and all was good.

I have a total crush on Delling now. Their hair is so cute! Also, BEST SMILE!
