Anonymous asked: do you have a "why you love zayn" post? curious to know why it is that you love him
i don’t, actually! writeivywrite has a great one that i pretty much entirely agree with, but i think for me, coming down to loving zayn is really just about how much i’ve been able to identify with his personality once i really started getting into the fandom. i think on a surface level it’s easy to love zayn because he might actually have the most perfect set of genetics of all time, and people seem to very often get caught up in his looks and talent and end up being more attracted to his potential rather than what and who he is right now (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, i think it can be quite nice that people are so passionate about the longevity of his career, i just wish they were more passionate about the longevity of his happiness but that’s a different story). but what it really boils down to for me is how human and relatable he is despite the media, and even some of his stans, trying to make him out into something completely different.
he’s sweet, kind, and charitable, but so quiet and reserved that to the untrained eye his sentimental feelings for others can be easy to miss if you already have the preconceived notion that he hates the boys and thinks he’s too good for them. he’s smart, even though people will hold it against him for switching schools a few times, and is so earnest about going back to college to finish his education for no other reason than that he wants to do it for himself. he’s so thoughtful and attentive, even when it comes down to dumb shit like another one of harry’s whack ass stories or listening to the rules for a game challenge on jimmy kimmel, he takes his time and acts only when he’s ready to. he’s a loser who stans for the power rangers and reads comics and owns a mystery machine because those are the iconic figures that he can identify with best. he loves his family and is quick to spend as much time and money on them as he can now that he has the resources to do so. he has a fiancee who he loves and seems so happy to be with, and even though i’m generally ambivalent to the idea of anyone getting married so young, seeing how they are together makes me want to know what that feels like and hope that it works out for the best for them. he has to deal with racists who shame him for being muslim, and muslims who shame him for not being pious enough, and assholes on both sides who try to dictate his identity for him, and the way he’s been able to shrug off that kind of dictatorship over his life and still have so much love and appreciation for his fans and what they’ve done for him is really important to me.
he calls his mom a gangster because the organizational skills represented in her spice rack are second to no other.
he’s got the word ‘chillin’ tatted on his arm
he has a lizard named arnie??????????????
i love zayn because he’s so unrepentantly himself (smart, funny, kind, thoughtful) in a world where everyone around him is trying to shame him for not being who they think he is, and i just find that really inspiring man. all of the limitations and self-confidence issues he had in himself, that i can easily see in myself too, he was able to overcome. the shy little brown boy from bradford who never had a passport and never saw himself going anywhere, and now he’s smashing it, WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE
i just really want zayn and harry to make out with tongue (i need to see a tongue) in front of a camera idc the reason behind it or who had to challenge them to do so or how creepy the video looks i need it before i die i won’t rest until they do
wow wake up america
Why is he dressed like harry in all of his pics
I GOT A SELFIE WITH HER AND MET BASICALLY THE WHOLE BAND this is the best day of my life
My Awesome, Saggy Breasts
My breasts sag. It’s a fact I’m slowly starting to come to terms with, but sometimes it’s still a hard thing to admit. A while ago I mentioned accidentally losing some weight and my breasts have definitely begun to show the results of that weight loss. What remains are two saggy little lumps on my chest with stretch marks all around them. But this has happened before, and I’m sure it will happen again.
My body changes all the time and when my weight fluctuates, it changes my shape and drastically affects my breasts. I used to obsess over the way my breasts sagged and the stretch marks on them and I even bought a special cream that was supposed to be, “breast firming and stretch mark healing.” Yeah right. When I gain weight, they puff up and change shape and when I lose weight, they shrink down and hang there inside of skin that’s now too big for them. The challenge I face is to not view this as “bad,” but simply as “what my body does,” and a natural part of my life.
Sometimes I get stuck in the mentality of comparing them to all of the other breasts of women my age and shape and I let discontent and unhappiness creep in. I start thinking they’re not normal, they’re too saggy, other women don’t have to deal with this, and so on. There’s actually an awesome Tumblr blog I found that is all user submissions of breasts and sometimes viewing the diversity on there is a much needed wake up call for me. - http://ourbreasts.tumblr.com/
So what if my breasts sag, or if they’ve got stretch marks? They’re mine and they’re part of who I am and I need to love them and be happy with them in whatever shape they take on. Saggy breasts, perky breasts or no breasts, I’m still me and I can’t let their shape and size get in the way of how I feel about myself. My body is awesome and dynamic. It’s a living, breathing organism that changes and shows signs of wear and evolves and grows and shrinks. It’s fucking cool. And watching my breasts change shouldn’t be a bad thing, but rather just a thing that happens that’s part of who I am. Today my breasts are smaller and saggier than they were 6 months ago, but that does not for one second mean that they are any less awesome.
ZAYN JUST CHILLIN WHILE LIAM SITS ON HIM
H E DOESNT EVEN FUCKING CARE
IT’S NOTHING NEW
WELL BYE (x)
Very protective of her. But, this year there have been times when I have wanted to hug her and there have been also been times when I have wanted to smack her bum and give her a time out because she pushes her luck this year, on more than one occasion! I remember someone said to me in an interview, ‘is it important to you that everyone likes Rae all the time’, and I thought, nah, not at all. Because if everybody liked her all the time then I’ve failed at my job. My job is to make it real, and I hope this year that people will see that because it took me some courage to go with it.
