Hey y’all! Recently, during some of our discord adventures, we found out about custom emojis! Our server can have up to 50 at a time, so now I ask you :
What images would you like to have as your emojis? Do you have serious, wacky, or dramatic ideas in mind? Please comment with any potential ones you would like, or PM them to me on discord, and I shall assemble them into a folder and make them as soon as I can.
Sending the call out to all the discord people, and anyone else who may have a particularly fun face to add~~

It’s probably obvious who I want as an emoji. Hahahaha.
The problem now is…which picture to choose 😆
Hehehe, I figured! Let me know! (Feel free to choose multiple, I figure since it’ll be a folder, we can rotate emojis, so we aren’t limited by number.)
Thanks for tagging! I’ll come back to this 😬
Look here, I’m not going to lie OR be old person shamed for my lack of tech savvy. I feel like I know what an emoji is (I mean, obviously) but…Im going to request fingerhearts. And Im not sure if that counts. But its out there. I WANT ME SOME FINGERHEARTS. I havent the foggiest if that can be an emoji. And now I feel like Ive been yelling and babbling for an extremely long time. Get off my lawn. Im going to binge Stranger Things 2 and make more library programs.
Oh! I was watching something today, either My Husband Doesnt Fit! Or, Stranger Things Season 1 as those are the only things I watched and one of them said, “Bams is awesome!” And I was like, I should screen shot and post it on db and tag our own Bams. But I didnt. But it exists.
It what! No way! 😂 That’s so cool, I feel famous!
(Also, how are you enjoying Stranger Things?)
Also, YES TO FINGER HEARTS. What a great idea! Would you like a particular person to be doing the finger heart, or just have the hand exist?
I mean…Jackson Wang doing fingerhearts. but, general fingerhearts are probably for the best.
And Im properly obsessed with Stranger Things. I watched Season 3 with my nieces and nephew and started season 1 about 9 hours ago. I havent just been sitting on my tuckus watching ST for the last 9 hours…..
Comment was deleted
Here’s some Jackson finger hearts to choose from
And some more
Technically not finger hearts but I love it anyways 😄
And I couldn’t resist including these too 💚
All the hearts 💕💕💕
Are there any where he’s also simultaneously holding a “Get off my lawn” sign?
@ndlessjoie I’ll keep looking for that 😄
I’ve been using discord as a chat app and I am mostly lurking so I don’t really know how the emoji system there works HAHA
Do we only get to choose the preexisting ones or do we have a choice to make our own from images?
Good question! We can make our own from images! 😁 (I just learned this yesterday, hahahaha!)
I nominate Song Ji-won, Veronica Park, Shin Sung-rok, and Lee Jae-wook as emojis if it is alright. I’m be willing to find the images.
“I’m be willing” ohmygod my gammar sucks
*grammar* I hate myself
Sigh. It keeps saying I’m posting an inappropriate word.
Those don’t just sound alright, they sound awesome!
(And I didn’t even notice the typo at first, haha!)
I hear your awesome as aweeesome HAHA
I don’t even know what the inappropriate words in DB are. I can’t post a long comment one time but I don’t remember what word in my comment is the inappropriate one HAHA
Shin sung rok from all his dramas can be meme-ed. Ahahaa
He is a 100% living meme. No one can convince me otherwise.
Finger hearts but isa has already mentioned.
Finger heart guns. Is that possible?
That heart that k-celebs do with their palms, & full body ones.
Also, an extra: can we have a double hand wave that our handsome hamster does so often? 😉
And a very cute swag cat, something like pusheen?
Orenji. And your sparkly bots & roombas.
Obviously the pineapple with sunglasses.
But also Magic Horse.
But probably just the pineapple with sunglass since I don’t have time to make anything else.
I also won’t be able to give you the file till Saturday at the earliest. . .
i read this lmk as like the human lmk this is mindys power
LS fully knew what she was doing when she said it
But this gif attacked me.
It was designed to, yes.
I think ill stick to good old hammers. Or my gumball face (profile picture). Or 4th rower. Yes.
I can help you with that if you like😁😁,I have so many pictures for so different k-people ♥️♥️
These are my emojis and would love to use them on rotational basis ^_^
I really like these fb stickies
and of course if we’re talking about finger hearts, we cannot not have Min Hyuk’s finger hears with love.
What’s the deadline?? I won’t be able to look into this till the weekend.
Never! Just send when you can! 😁
how about the seaweed slap from the drama within drama from www? (instead of the kimchi slap) xD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZIP0F4Yw-s
Lol loved it!!! Must have emoji too!!
There is a dramabeans discord chat?!? Can I join? 😀
Absolutely! Let me get you the link!
(And long time, no see Luz! Hope you’re doing well!)
I am great! How about you?
Yeah, life got a bit crazy so I lurked but I haven’t been very consistent.
I really really love this. That is all.
One of their better songs lyrically.
Sooo…I only just realized that the pieces they’re holding form the heptagon that is their logo. 😂🙃
Hahahahaha, hyung! Better late than never.
And yess, I quite like the lyrics.
I love You Are so much! It’s the first title track that JB wrote and he did such a good job 💚 The song, lyrics, and MV are so beautiful.
Awwww, really? That’s so cool! He did do an awesome job, indeed! I’m enjoying the atmosphere and mood the song brings – and it’s so good on all those different levels.
And I forgot to say the choreography is beautiful too! I love the part where they look up at the sky and spin around. That’s exactly what I feel like doing on beautiful days 💚
Also, have you heard Page?? I’m recommending it to everyone right now because I love it so much. It’s another song written by JB and it’s book themed 💕💕💕
(Turn your volume up because the louder it is the better 💚)
Yesss to the choreo! It reminds me a bit of Maria. I confess to running to the hills – or really any clearing, and spinning around, face to the heavens. It makes me feel so free. <3
I haven't heard Page yet! I'm doing a music room right now, but I promise I'll listen and get back to you! I just want to make sure I have time and attention enough to give it the proper treatment.
Or you could share it with everyone in the music room for me 😉 I promise it’s good 💚
Ooh hahaha, I should’ve!
I have added the choreo to the list of ones I really want to learn! I’m claiming practice time in the fall to dance, so I hope I’ll be able to figure it out. <3
And I really like Page! The lyrics are so sweet, and remind me of the letters I send to my friends….
(I'm SO sorry for the late reply! I listened a bit ago but thought I had replied when I hadn't..)
That’s awesome that you’re going to try to learn the choreo! Good luck!
I’m glad you enjoyed Page 💚
*grabs you some custom-made, sturdy trekking shoes, slippers, and Wonder Woman socks*
‘Cause the journey is long and you’ve gotta keep trudging on, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be made a little bit more comfortable and a little less of a struggle.
Your posts are always so inspiring 💕💕💕 And the pictures are beautiful too 💚
Awww, I feel like a broken record saying this, but I really am so glad to hear it. 💖 and thank you!
I look forward to this every week. Thank you Bams.
Mugyuljoie, my heart completely warmed to hear this. It is my pleasure!
(Also, I’ve just realized that you have never been given a nickname. Do you have one? Would you like one?)
(Not because I don’t like your name, it just feels like a rite of passage to have 9 different names, like we’re in a Russian novel..)
(Rambling, I am. 😂)
So far people tend to pick part of my name and use it. I’d be happy to answer to any nickname you bestow.
Oooh, okay. I’m not very good at making nicknames, but maybe Joie? It makes me think of joy.
Love the flower pictures! And your kind messages are always a treat to read.
”Even if I’m bad at it, I like the word beginning”
As the perfectionist I am, I often don’t want to start something that I think I won’t pick up quickly, and struggle with continuing if I have already started.
But there’s a difference between being horrible at something, and lacking the skills because you haven’t had time to settle in. So if you want to learn or try the new thing, please do. And I hope you can do all of the things you wish to, and enjoy them, no matter what objective skill you end up gaining from them.
*shoves other people’s thoughts and judgments to the side*
If you need the encouragement to start… *holds out my hands for you to step up on*
If you have started.. Thank you for your hard work in carrying on even when it’s frustrating. It is appreciated, and you are doing well.
*whispers* You can fly!
Have a good week, errybody~
Thanks for listening to my musings..
Thank you bammie!! A much needed post this morning , I hope you have a wonderful day 😊
Oooh yay! *squeezes in a hug* Hope yours was/is going well, as well!
Your posts always makes my week feel better 😊 have a great week ahead, Bams!
I’m beginning to sound like Pollyanna with the amount of times I say “glad”, but I can’t find a more appropriate word, because gosh darn it, I am glad to hear it! 💖 Have the most splendid of weeks, Bears!
To be honest, I didn’t even notice how many times you used the word “glad” haha!
Hahaha, that’s good! I feel less conscious using it now.. XD
Thanks for the encouragement you give us every week, Bams! I hope that you also remember these things!! Have a great week😀
Huuuugs, Jelly! Thank you for the encouragement back! Looking for the good throughout my week to share keeps me accountable, and makes me better able to see and find sweet things. And then comments like these inspire me further. It’s the best kind of cycle! I try to keep these messages in my heart.. a lot of the time, they’re little things I’m learning in my life, and I share just in case anybody else might need to hear it, too.
Happy Tuesday Bammsie 💕 Thanks for your encouraging posts. I hope you have a great week. That picture is beautiful!
Thank you, Ra On Ah! Hope you had a beautiful Tuesday!
I was in the car for that picture – saw the birds flying overhead and felt like I just needed to capture the moment!
Holy mother of megazon.
I’ll just be over here…
screaming and swooning…
until the movie comes out.
I am so flipping excited. What the actual heck.
She is perfectly cast! Perfect!
P e r f e c t.
The fact that she doesn’t speak perfect English makes me want to cry with joy.
I have a girl crush on her already for so many reasons.
I’m with you… So excited for this!!!
*does a little Mushu jig*
If they chose to forgo the musical route–a la the 1998 Disney animated film– then they better dang make it historically correct (even if Mulan wasn’t an actual historical character, but the story of Hua Mulan was actually a ballad, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hua_Mulan), and they better make it dang epic
I am here for this! I haven’t watched a Disney movie in ages but I’ll be checking this one out for sure.
I’m not getting over this any time soon. I’ve been knocked over by a trailer barely over a minute long – who knows how I’ll be able to take a whole movie?
Can’t wait to discuss when it does come out!!
ITS A GREAT TIME TO BE ALIVE
ISN’T IT JUST

Some News And A Farewell
Hello, dear Beanfriends.
As many of us are aware of at this point, our wonderfully terrible group-watching site/app Rabbit is shutting down. (If you’d like to know a little bit about the situation : https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/hitting-wall-amanda-richardson)
We aren’t sure as to when it will cease to exist, but we have a couple of backup plans forming. Several of us have been looking into alternative sites and apps, although it’s rare for them to have both in one.
For now, we have a main chat on Discord, which seems to be the best option, with a chatting function outside of watches (which helps with coordinating times and plans) along with a screen-sharing function.
The link for that chat is here : https://discord.gg/GSYTwYe
As frustrating and buggy as Rabbit could be, I am so grateful for the opportunities it gave us all to chat in real-time while watching/listening to things we love (or hate).
The initial idea was borne out of feverish desperation, a need heightened by 2AM excitement to share music with some Beans who didn’t have yet streaming access.
After the success of that first room, we thought to spread the news in the case that anyone else might be interested in the little site.
It’s been a over a year now since then, and in that time, around a hundred Beans have been brought to the dark side.
We’ve had hours-long music rooms, absolutely amazing live-translation watches (@kimbapnoona and @jenmole, have I mentioned that I love you recently?), crack watches,”I’m in this for the robot” watches, hate watches, accidentally traumatic watches, “put this dumb episode on 2x speed so we can get it over with” watches, “we’re replaying this five-second clip of Mr. Thornton for scientific research” watches…
And best of all, we’ve had a space to connect, to bond together through expertly-written keyboard-smashes and stimulating, intelligent discussions.
I want better words to describe my feelings for all that Rabbit has facilitated for us, but I’m afraid they are beyond my possession right now.
The experiences we’ve had over the past year are irreplaceable. Thank you all for sharing them with me and making them so very amazing. I’ve loved getting to know you all a little more through Rabbit.
P.S. I believe @babybeast among others are organizing farewell watches in the bunny’s honor, so please do join us, if you wish.
P.P.S. Lee Min Ki would look good in a mohawk. That is all.
P.P.P.S. If anyone has any questions regarding the changes, or has any insights into steps moving forward, please let me know! Thank you so much!
@greenfields, @fatcat007, @neener, @waadmay, @mindy, @estee, @hotcocoagirl, @kimbapnoona, @outofthisworld, @natzillagorilla, @giegie0384, @cloggie, @hades, @tspmasala, @isthatacorner, @rukia, @suriyana-shah, @sweetiepie54, @pbnjelly513, @jenmole, @lcaro13, @seashell, @samantha1, @parkchuna, @fencejumper, @delphy010, @paperclip, @minnetter, @shindy, @ally-le, @khalessymd, @manohira, @moomoomoondog, @ultramafic, @justme, @earthna, @baieda, @stpauligurl, @tsutsuloo, @kdramaswimmer, @giocare, @obsessedmuch, @vivanesca, @leetennant, @chingu, @sicarius, @coffeprince4eva, @miraalmano, @marybee, @jaelegant, @charlieblue17, @frabbycrabsis, @luzitania, @jaelegant, @crysta, @mollyp, @whoopeeyoo, @babybeast, @silvermists, @esther95, @beesgiggle, @zetteceniza, @dokutokunaneko, @feenah9895, @egads, @noobita, @samurai, @adieunoire, @christina41218, @saya, @festerfaster, @ravennightstar, @adieunoire, @blissfulennaira, @1tea1, @bebeswtz, @saturtledaisy, @snarkyjellyfish, @lordcobol, @llljr, @amilia, @katakwasabi, @infinitize, @superwhopotterlock, @minminfan
and alllll of the other Beans who have fallen into the bunny crock. (So so sorry if I missed you, this list hasn’t been updated 😭)
Bams, you are a bright and shining light even amongst all the lovely glistening Beans. Why?
1. This message is lovely and informative.
2. Lee Min Ki would most definitely look superb in a mohawk
But I do feel that you missed one of the best things to come out of our time on rabbit.
Way to keep us hanging…
Well, I posted the gif, but then it was huge and scary, and a bit weird after Bams’ lovely post. Watching Million on rabbit taught us many things about Australian geography but most LMK’s willingness to share his life saving sweat.
Ahhh, you mean
I will truly treasure that masterpiece of a film and the time we spent on rabbit. I learned so much about my own country I didn’t know.
LOL!!! It took me a minute to recognize this famous and well deserved, um, forgetful scene. But it was so much fun watching with everyone…..
now i’m giggling….
I CAN’T BELIEVE BAMS BETRAYED ME LIKE THIS
NO ONE LOOKS GOOD IN A MOHAWK
Even LMK can’t save the most tragic of haircuts look at his Shoot Me in the Heart hair
But can’t you imagine a world where LMK proves that one person CAN look good in a mohawk?
I truly appreciate that you all recognize LMK’s beauty and generally insane attractiveness as a human being but… no.
Mohawk, eyeliner, and a leather jacket. Yep, he’d look very very nice.
I am completely supportive of the eyeliner and the leather jacket
I think the mohawk should be green and blue
i have a screenshot of coco talking about mindy x minki with matching mohawks and it is a brillant screenshot. i love it!
BB really is a nice kid. 🙂
I have no idea how to add images in comments without uploading it to an external website but Ive sent it in the discord chat! (I can send it to you also!)
😂 I cannot express how disappointed I am that I wasn’t there for the iconic sweat day.
To think that I was spending my time walking around at a festival after nearly cutting my finger off.
I mean, there is clearly a winning choice here.
You also weren’t there for Tsunami Oppa, were you? Sad.
This talk got me thinking. Right after Min-ki saves the girl who becomes his stalker from drowning, she grabs him and kisses him and then bites his lip. And then does it again later. Maybe she saw that movie and thought his blood would be life-saving, too.
Thank you, Bams. It’s the end of the Bunny age, but we Beanies are resilient, a new age awaits!
Yes! Onward we go!
bams always has the best words.
*sends onslaught of fingerhearts*
*pew pew right back*
Thx for all the good Rabbit memories guys.
Oh dear, just read the wiki
We seem to be hanging out with the alt-right and revenge-porners 🙁
But I love the group name “Carrots for the Beans”. Perfect for Rabbit-deprived Beanies.
😂 Uuhm, well that’s just lovely.
Beanies always make things better wherever they go, though, right? They make DB the wonderful place it is, they made Rabbit fun throughout all of its’ glitchy days… The same will have to go for discord. Everything/everyone else may wreak havoc, but Beanies will remain chaotically wonderful.
bams– i have rabbit but ive never actually used it…always thought i’d make it to “the next one.” sigh. gather ye rosebuds 🙁 but anyway i was thinking if its not too late, i might try to pop into any last/farewell sessions if i can…but how would i do that? how do i find you all?
Oh, absolutely DO come, Nicole! We’d just love to have you. Let me get you the link to the main chat, okay?
If you enter this, you should be able to get into the chat, and from there, we can tell you about watches!
My best memories of 2018 was brought by Rabbit.
Awww, Mano! I’m glad that it was there for you.
End of an era
Indeed, my savage and stoic unnie. 😂
Were you some kind of leader in your past life bammy? 😁 Cuz you’re so good at this.
Thanks for the new gathering place link, I’ll check it out soon.
And 🐰 shall be missed. Rip.
… maybe Bams is the true High Priestess of DB… *prepares her a set of ceremonial robes* *obviously in light blue and purple, a touch of green*
….my message to Kitty aside, I would not turn down this role if you wished to bestow it on me. Especially with those robes in mind!
Hehe, I am simply a delegator and bringer of news, and find the others who know how to organize and work out the technical kinks. Beanies have some awesome initiatives.
I am so sad!!! :((((
😔 Me tooo! I thought bunny would live forever, in all of its’ glitchy ways.
I’ve been MIA for a bit, but I saw that Rabbit was shutting down and I immediately thought of Beanies. The Last Empress watch was so fun and a highlight of my year. I keep hearing about Discord so I may join you guys there.
Shek! Missed you, and hope you are doing well! We’ll be eagerly hoping for your arrival, should you come!
I hope in the following week, you have all of these in some measure :
– the courage to step out of your comfort zone, should you need to
– laughter, even in the harder moments
– remembrance of the fact that your mistakes aren’t what define you
– and that you are allowed to mistakes, because I’m 99% sure that you’re human
– hugs, good news, and more laughter
the funnies and the softies
Do you also follow the weird–but cute– alien comics, too?????
Strange Planet? Yes, indeed! One of my favorites. 💖
MIne, too ~!!! I love the explicitly dry humor hahaha
Hahaha yes! Makes me laugh every time!
Happy Tuesday bams 💕
Happy Wednesday, Ra On Ah! ☺️
Thanks. Best Wednesday Ever. GOT7 was on the Today Show and will be on the Build Series later today 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚
Oh, yayy!!!! That’s so awesome to hear!
Sending virtual hugs to you Bams! Have a wonderful week ahead! ^^
Huuugs right back! You too, best of Bears!
“Maybe it hurts more because I thought it’d be easy.” 💔💛
GOD BAMS WHY ARE YOU AWAKE
Same thing I’m wondering! Did you stay up just for this?
I didn’t stay up!
Don’t believe her.
That I woke up for it.
I didn’t stay up.
Hahaha! I believe you Bams. Were you able to go back to sleep sometime after or at least napped during the day?
@hades I went to sleep at four my time! So.. 6 1/2 hours of sleep! Not bad at all.
Interesting. When you put up a song, I know I should at least check it out. 🙂
Stray Kids are always worth checking out G.
Lol. Yeah I’d have checked out later today anyway. 😁
Do I exist on a different planet or hasn’t G already semi checked them out
I’m think, maybe? I’ma bad friend. I can’t remember.
Haha yup. I actually really like Stray Kids. the only reason I hadn’t heard this when I commented on Bams’ post is because I was in class.
I really like it, it’s so different! The sort of chaos and changes in sound throughout the song help to emphasize the confusion portrayed in the lyrics, I think.
I tentatively like it too hahaha and yes what you say, very appropriate.
Take what you need today.
A hug, a resting place, some reassurance, someone to shout or cry or laugh with or, or cheer you on… (Maybe you need a poke in the side? Who knows?)
It’s your Room of Requirement. Do what you will, but make it yours. It’ll be beautiful.
Decorating ideas for the room
Your Tuesday posts always brighten my week bammsie. I hope your week is going well 💚💕💚💕💚
Awww, I’m terribly glad to hear that. Have a good week too, Ra On Ah!
We have jasmine in the place we recently moved to, and it smells so delicious! I could just sit and breathe it in all day.
Isn’t it the best scent? It’s so sweet and amazing! I love that you use the word “delicious” to describe it, too, it’s perfect.
This makes me want to run out and plant some heliotrope. I love the scent.
*whispers* Do it!
I read poke as in tuna poke. Yes, I’m hungry and I should be sleeping.
Maybe you need tuna poke. I certainly do.
May your week be filled with flowers! 🌹🌺🌻🌼🌷🌸💐 Have a lovely week ahead Bams!
Thank you, Bears! To you, too! ☺️💕
Have a great week! 🙂
A very very happy anniversary to the fellows who have inspired me, lifted me up on hard days, and facilitated the start of some absolutely beautiful friendships.
Thank you for your time, your artistry, your philosophy, your vulnerability and honesty, your heart. It is a precious gift.
Love them so much! <3
Love you so much 😘
Love you so much too 😆😘
”If you fall back a little, just rest
You’re doing fine, when things are hard
I’ll run with you, don’t worry
Get up and roll up your sleeves, don’t give up
Feels like you’re running without knowing where the end is
It’s a cycle of having a tired body and tired heart
You’re about to give up
But you’re the one who decides the end
What’s your decision?
Just the fact that you’re running toward the end
You’re doing enough
You’re doing just fine
I know you and you’re trying your best right now
That’s all you need
Just keep your pace
Don’t be nervous, trust yourself
You’re doing fine
Have strength, just endure a little more
I’ll be next to you
You gotta take your time, you can do it
You can do just fine”
Thank you for all you do – the service you give to others with your presence. Hope you’re giving the same service to yourself.
The warm things of the week (that aren’t my sweaty forehead that disagrees with the heat)
Lovely poem! And is that camp fire toasted marshmallow?
I also see bread – that’s a very interesting way of scoring!
Thank my newfound loves in music for the poem. 🙂 I really appreciate their encouraging lyrics and felt like they could express my feelings today better than I could.
It is indeed a campfire-toasted marshmallow! I wanted to keep going and going, trying to attain the perfect golden color, but I didn’t have enough people to eat the marshmallows once I was done. 😂
It wasn’t my intention to score the bread that way, actually, hahaha! Nor was it my intention to make 6 loaves of sourdough… but, you know. Things happen.
There’s a reason why poetry and music exist.
No one to help you eat marshmallow. If only I can teleport myself.
6 loaves of sourdough!!! I am new to sourdough, still trying to get that seemingly unattainable crumb. I am in two sourdough facebook groups. I don’t post but just ogle at the pictures and turn green with envy.
After the initial two, the little kids were done. 😂 I wish you could teleport yourself over, too!
6 loaves. This is what happens when I’m about to discard half of my starter during the usual feeding, feel bad about discarding so much, activate the discard, and try to use ALL of it up.
😂 You’re giving me inspiration; I should do the same. I’m in Facebook groups for Instant Pots and Avengers and I can tell you that I have the same reaction to both of them. 😂
Hahaha…it’s strange but true. I feel bad about discarding discards!
Instant Pots and Avengers? Not a marvel film?
Thank you Bams. 💕🌻
💐💖 Any time.
Is that a self composed poem? ^^
No, no! Although I’d love to take credit for it – 😑 I forgot to write in the credit on there, didn’t I. Dang it.
It’s from the song Grow Up, by Stray Kids. Han wrote it. <3 It gives me Good Day/Otsukare/You Never Walk Alone-type feelings.
I always look forward to your weekly posts ^^ Have a blessed week ahead!
Oh, I’m glad! And you too, Bears! 💖
Have a good week bammsie 💕💕
Thank you, Ra On Ah! 😘 You too!
Thank you for your heart, Jin. Just… thank you.
Easily among the best things I’ve heard in my life. 😊 And I’m not even exaggerating.
With our seven, there is no need to. <3
Okay, okay, okay!!!! I admit it, I love you dearly!
They really are some kind of wonderful. Those precious lyrics! Beautiful vocals! Killer raps! Self-producing! Crackheads!
(On another note, why can all of my groups be described like this…? And they all have the three-letter thing going on, too…)
They’re pretty great. I’m always surprised when I hear a song and I’m like, that’s interesting, and almost always, it’s them showing up unannounced on my Spotify list.
Hee! After I got into them I realized that they’d already slipped into my playlist from months before…
I can’t help it, Stray Kids just crack me up. I don’t even like kpop but for some reason I feel maternal about the poor little Antipodeans. It’s weird.
Hehehehe. They’re just such utter dumblings, you can’t help but feel affection.
*this is a big mood* *even if I do listen to kpop* *this I just get this so much* *protect the Antipodeans!!*
Fighting, Bams! <3 ^^
And to you too, Bears! 💖
I’ve been finding more and more that oftentimes, I have an issue with perspective.
Not just when I’m trying to draw that pesky leg of that cat, and it ends up pointing in the opposite direction that t was supposed to..
But with what I think is important, what I prioritize. I freak out about exams and the exact phrasing of the words that come out of my mouth, because of course the world will end tomorrow if I say that thing wrong or get (heaven forbid) lower than a 95 on an assignment. My worth is tied directly to these things, right? (The seasons are changing; who will stay when the wind strips away these things that are obviously the pieces that define me?)
And on the other side of it, I give no consequence to the things that maybe, are where my eyes should be focused. The waking, the breathing, the determination to start again each day. The being myself, without (much) quavering or hesitance. The ‘acknowledging what I’ve done well’ thing.
(Since when did school, jobs, responsibilities take precedence over good mental health?)
I know I need new glasses. I’m working on it.
Today, I had the best kind of affirmation.
‘Speak yourself’ is a phrase I’ve held close to me for a little while, a reminder to myself that I can be kind while standing firm in expressing my views, and boldly asking for what I need and want.
(Today, I got a great big hug from the professor who intimidated me.)
(Today, I got a demand to keep in contact from a gal who I thought was too cool to associate with the likes of me outside of class.)
(Today, I wasn’t fully prepared for an exam, and I probably didn’t do as well as I could. And that’s okay.)
(Today, I was able to affirm to myself that my worth isn’t found extrinsically.)
(Today, I found that loosening my grip on the reins and removing my hands from where they were covering my eyes allowed me to see the people who stayed. And not only that, but that the people who stayed stayed for me.)
Don’t let anybody (and not you, especially) stop you from pursuing what you love, from pursuing a state of peace, of contentment with yourself.
(Did any of this make sense? I don’t know, I’m very sleepy.)
Little things that take up a big space in my heart
Have a good week, you opalescent tree sharks.
Happy Tuesday Bammsie 💕 You are doing great 👍
Right back atcha, dearest Ra On Ah!
A nice reminder 🙂 Have a great week Bams!
You too, Bears! 💕
I love Meet The Robinsons.
That and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs are my go to comfort cartoons.
Yessssss! (Good taste! 😉) Someone brought to my attention the glaring gaps in logic in both of those movies.
Do I care?
Heck no. They’re packed full of heart and sincerity and it’s beautiful.
You do got this 😊
Just because it cracks me up everytime
I swear imbedding images are the bane of my existence. https://giphy.com/gifs/dinosaur-t-rex-meet-the-robinsons-hiTq9LaR9QKRy
😂 I’ve never discovered how to embed giphy gifs properly.
Also, saved! Never fails to make me smile!
(And thank you!)
Fighting <3 <3 <3
*tackles you with a thank you hug*
“A-yo, when it’s tough
Doong tah dak, lean on the rhythm, oh
With our song for you
Everyone a-yo, everyone a-yo
Even if it seems there’s no end
To the sleepless night,
Never give up
Your way, your way”
I love songs like this – the ones that let you let go for a little while, letting you forget everything as you sway and clap to the rhythm. Thank you, SHINee, and a very happy anniversary to 5 incredible artists. ♡
That was beautiful 💙 Minho waving at all the fans is so cute 💕💕💕
*whisper* You got this.
What is “this”?
But *gives you a little boost*
Be it getting through the day, a certain task…
You got it. (*hands you a blanket, a fan, tea, cookies, a listening ear, water, a green tree, and a reminder that it’s okay to let yourself rest or lean on a friend*)
Special thanks to @mindy for the flower photos of the week~
You got this!!
Ohh~ What is that cake? It looks delicious!
I was wondering that too! Whatever it is, I want some!
It’s an almond cake! The ingredients are so simple, it’s almond flour, lemon zest, eggs, and sliced almonds. I added some almond and vanilla extract for fun too, but they’re not strictly necessary!
That sounds amazing!
I thought it was pizza 🍕. 😂
I mean, sure? 😂 I’ve seen pizzas with stranger ingredients than this.
I should I try this out one day!
Oh, it’s so yum! And a perfect cake for tea or coffee time!
Happy Tuesday Bams! 💕
Happy Tuesday, Ra On Ah! 💕
lovely and uplifting as always! thank you bam <3 <3 <3
My pleasure, Nicole! Hope you’re doing well, dear!
To face-splitting smiles and the things that bring you joy, encouragement, and comfort. May you all have them in plenty.
The smells that would waft from my amortentia, and have caused the widest grins I’ve had this past week
P.S. Thank you all for alll of the sweet, beautiful birthday wishes. They made me cry with gratefulness.
Happy Birthday! (or Happy Belated Birthday!)
Thank you, Caro!! 💖
Happy Tuesday Bammsie! That drawing is so cute!
Thank you! I do love my dragons. Happy Tuesday to you too, Ra On Ah! 😁
Happy Birthday! and also side note: that log about Aquaman made me question things…
Awww, thank ya! (Do you have a nickname?)
Hahaha, same! The Martian raises many existential questions.
You can call me Bears c:
Sounds good, Bears!
P.S. I simply adore your profile pic.
Happy Belated Birthday, Bams! 🌷
Maraming salamat, Giegie!
I didn’t get a chance to take too many new photos this week, so I’ll instead tell you five beautiful things from the week :
~ Waking up to the sound of lightly pattering rain
~ The feeling of being enraptured by a novel
~ A full, full, full hug from a friend
~ A finally-organized shelf of books
~ Warm tea seeping through my bones
*tries to share the warmth (or some coolness, if you’re too hot to handle) with y’all*
Have a rad week full of the best of the little things.
An organized shelf of books is the best. Have a beautiful week Bammsie 💕
It really is!! I finally cleared one out so that I could put all of my scattered books on it, and it was such a satisfying feeling.
@bammsie I love these too! Little things can bring much joy.
I’ve always like the sound of rain, watching the rain drops on the window pane. The weather here is hot throughout the year so we only have rain to bring respite from the heat. One of my favorite things is to lie in bed, with a good book and listening to the pattering rain.
Is it your birthday today? Wishing you a blessed birthday full of joy and happiness!
Yesss, that is an absolutely delicious feeling. We’ve been getting more rain here this year, and I almost don’t know what to do with it, I’m so used to the drought. It is a total blessing whenever it comes around.
And yes, it is! Thank you so much! 🤗 Have a wonderful day, too!
Happy Birthday Bams!!!🎂🎉🎊 I hope you have an awesome and amazing day! You are such a sweet person and I am very thankful to you for being one of the first Beanies to get me out of my shell and talking to me on DB:) May God bless you so very much😀
P.s. I really love your Tuesday posts! They remind me to look at the beautiful things around me when life gets hard, so thank you for that!!
Jelly!! How I’ve missed you, it’s so good to hear from you. Thank you for the lovely wishes and words, I’m so warm. I smile whenever I see you posting, your reviews or little comments are such fun to read.
Hope you’re doing well, and God bless you, too!
I sound like Pollyanna at this point, so let me lean into it completely to say I’m so glad, glad, glad that they serve as a gentle reminder and not a completely silly, preachy thingamajig.
I’ve missed you too Bams! I’ve been doing good, just busy, busy. Then rabb.it wouldn’t work on my phone and my bro has my laptop so i haven’t had the time to catch up with you all, not that my fam would let me since they are soooo needy, lol. Hopefully I get to chat more with you soon!
Here’s hoping! Rabbit has never been a friend to friendliness, I’m afraid. I’m glad there’s good with the busy!
The year was 1988, a time when it was chilly, but our hearts were fiery, a time when we didn’t have much but people’s hearts were warm.
It is not 1988, but nevertheless, this quote resonated with me deeply this week.
Taking a mo’ away from the busyness and the chaos to rest, and to say that I’m glad y’all are around. 🙂 Take a little rest with me, if you haven’t stopped for a bit. Or if you need a some motivation to keep at something you need to, then have a little “Hwaiting!” from me.
I have baguettes and hugs full of affection for any dumbling who wants any.
Have a wonderful week,
From some things that I hold dear
Awww…bams, I like this. I’ve been so busy, I need a rest – time for reflection or just to smell the flowers and doodle!
btw, where are your baguettes? and who is this moustache chap with a balloon?
I’m glad! *pats a cushion next to me* Come rest for as long as you need.
My baguettes are in my mouth. 😂
Somehow, they’ve become a blanket term for a bunch of different things.. I’ve used them as weaponry, ways to show fondness/dominance. (I may have some pics popping up again soon, I promised a class that I’d bring some in..)
The mustache dude lives in my physics notebook. I found that I like reading my notes better when they’re broken up into sections rather than huge blocks of text, so I’ve taken to pre-drawing little weirdos in. That one started off as a fruit and ended up being a mustachioed balloon man. Any name suggestions for him?
Your class is so lucky! Some breads are totally weapon material like the buns they serve. Can I ask you a question – do you use a couche to proof your baguette. I’ve been using a big tea towel but they still stick. Then I saw someone use baking paper in a youtube video – HUGE mistake. My dough stuck to it like crazy and when I finally peeled them off, they were all deflated.
I figure it’s a way to repay them for dealing with me being a total spaz all the time. 😂
I was just gifted one, but I haven’t tried that, no! I’ve been wanting to test it out, but right now, I’m still going with lightly floured parchment paper. I have it pinched into little mountains in between each baguette to keep them from sticking to each other, and then I pull the mountains out before baking.
I love you and am in awe of your brilliance. Storing that away in my little grey cells.
Just creeping in to say…
HELIUM POIROT IS SUCH A PERFECT NAME YOURE A GENIUS
ahem… *slinks away^
ISN’T SHE JUST??
Your classmates must love you for bringing in food 😋
Until I start hitting them with it. 😉
Oh wait, that only happened with one person.
And he still talks to me.
I’ll take a baguette and a hug! Have a great week Bammsie 🙂
*brings them both over in a great big squish*
You too, Ra On Ah! (I don’t know if you know this, but you’re my accountability gal! Sometimes I forget about my Tuesday posts or even that I’m trying to look for beautiful things, but then I recall your comments, so thank you!)
Aww. That’s so nice to hear. I always look forward to your Tuesday posts. Keep looking for the beautiful things in life 💕
I shall! 💖
Hwaiting back at you!
Why, thank you! 😊
thanks Bam,you just gave my midweek crash and burn at work,the needed pick me up.
Have a great week!
I’m glad to hear that it helped, Mary! Crash and burns are no fun, I hope there won’t be a reoccurrence next week, and that instead, it’ll be filled with many little things that make it bright. Hwaiting and thank you!
P.S. Your profile pic of Leeki is absolutely adorable. How is his smile so wonderful? 💖
Thanks for the well wishes..and I also don’t know,until now,why Leeki’s smile is like that. I just find myself smiling, too,when I see his smiley faces 😁
I’m glad that he brings you joy!
I chuckled at your mustache man doodle! With a helium balloon in hand, what could he be worrying about?
Hehe, too true! There are just some things in life that can’t help but lift you up. I count balloons, bubbles, and really good umbrellas in that category.
One of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes.
And coincidentally I was just listening to book 1 over the weekend. Which also reminds me, I need to finish the rest of the audio book.
Have a great rest of your week Bams!
P. S. Hello weird mustache man. For some reason I want to color the balloon red. 🎈
Jennnn! 😁 Hope you’re doing well!
It’s the best, and made me realize that I want to make a compilation of my favorite quotes from books I like..
Oo, nice! Where do you listen to the audiobook? Is the reader good?
(He says hello back, and I’ve grabbed my colored pencils.)
I listen to it on Audible and the author is Jim Dale. I’ve listened to the audio books at least twice so I’m used to his voice already. When I heard his voice on Pushing Daisies, I immediately knew it was him. OK, maybe I listened to HP books more than twice to recognize his voice. 😂
Ahhh, thanks! I’ve been doing more audiobooks on my walks, so definitely adding those on my list.
HP never gets old! And I can usually recognize that a voice is familiar without being able to place it for a while..
*pulls a baguette from Bams’ yoga bag.
Thanks. You’re the best! baking dumbling of all.
😂 Glad I could be of service.
I LOVE YOU BAMS!!!!
I LOVE YOU TOO, BB
