Dear tampon and pad companies:
Please make your items quieter to open.
The whole restaurant/household/bathroom now knows I am on my period, thank you.
I just thought my flat-mates were eating crisps in the loo.
that is the single most british sentence i have ever read
What might we deduce about his heart?
Your birthday has finally come.
I’ve been wondering for a very long time about what I could do for you and honestly I’m still not sure whether this is okay or not.
I’m not used to writing letters below my edits, I don’t really like to share my thoughts and feelings about you publicly.
But I thought it might be fine just for this once. I’ll try to be brief.
When I first saw you, I was kind of going through a rough patch.
I’ve always faced my problems without giving up, I’ve always tried to be happy with what I had even when going through the worst stages of my illness.
But it wasn’t until last year that I could find something to cheer me up, not even my dear friends and my precious Arashi were up to the task. Back then I was in Japan and I was very sad because I was missing someone who had been really important in my life and since he’s been gone I’ve always felt a bit empty.
And then you happened, just like an angel, truly a miracle, and I found myself able to laugh again, to enjoy my life at its fullest, to fall in love. I’m not saying I’m in love with you, I don’t have the arrogance to say I know you that well, but I’m not sure how to call this feeling either and I feel it’s better not to label it because I’m sure there are no words to explain my attachment to you yet. It’s not love indeed, but for me you’re much more than just an idol (and I’m sure I’m not alone in this). You’re not only an attractive guy with some talents who has to spend his life making his fans happy. Idols are commonly seen like people living for their fans, but I don’t want you to live for me or the other fans. I want you to live a life full of good things that you can enjoy to the fullest, because I care about you that much. Also, your happiness is mine and your smiles are way enough to fill the void in my heart when it feels blue and lonely.
The sadness I was feeling last year came back this year around my birthday and lasted for weeks, until I stopped pushing you away and accepted my feelings for you once again. I don’t even know why I started doing it, but when I got sad (about something not involving you), something inside me told me I had to stop adoring you so much, because it was insane and I needed to start growing up. But that thought was meaningless and stupid. It’s not like I’m childish or immature for adoring you, not at all. Instead I grew up a lot since you came into my life, because it seems you’re the only one who can still make me experience feelings I thought I couldn’t feel anymore. That’s why I can tell with utmost certainty that you’re very important to me and that’s also why I want to thank you. I’m so grateful for having “met” you, it wouldn’t be the same if you weren’t here and I can’t even imagine a life without you anymore, because you’re the one who makes me feel better, the one who makes me a better person. A person who looks up to you and hopes that someday will come a chance to tell you these things to thank you, shake your hand and wish you the best you can get from this life.
Please keep being the wonderful person you are, let us watch over you while you grow up into the awesome man you were always destined to be. And remember that no matter what happens, there will always be someone cheering for you and supporting you.
My dearest, I wish you a life full of success. May this day, and many more to come, be full of happiness and joyful things.
Happy Birthday Morimoto Shintaro.
Dear Shintaro, Thank you for being the star of my life. You’re 16 now and have a lot ahead of you. Don’t lose your smile baby.
Ever since you took away my love for Yamada back then in 2008; You didn’t even let him have a chance to feel my love :)) You reeled me in with that bratty attitude towards Nakayama.
My love for you is beyond the physical aspect. Your talent— your charm— your passion. Your attitude towards work and how carefree you look during your performances. I admire that. And I hope that the others will love you as well for that reason and not because you made puberty your bitch and grew so much.
Mm. I’m sorry for not making anything for you this year (Laura made the gif for me bec I didn’t have time to make an edit)
But, nevertheless, Edits don’t measure your love for the person. And I love you, Very much.
Keep smiling, and I wish you the best.
It breaks my heart not being able to make something special for Shintaro on his birthday.
July 15th ♥ 森本慎太郎 (Morimoto Shintaro)Happy 16th Birthday! お誕生日おめでとう！〜
