(and stick them on things)

Tagged by the lovely @hacash - sorry this is late!

Five things you’ll find in my bag:

  • my wallet
  • a book which i keep telling myself i’ll read during transit, except i usually spend that time catching up on fanfic/fandom stuff. right now it’s the reluctant fundamentalist.
  • tiny packets of kunkumam and turmeric. i usually get these while leaving a relative’s house, stuff it in my bag and then completely forget about them
  • a kajal stick
  • emergency contact lenses

Five things you’ll find in my bedroom:

  • shelves full of (mostly xeroxed) psychiatry/psychology textbooks that i’ve barely cracked
  • an almost-always overflowing laundry basket (and yet i insist on doing the washing only on sundays… what the hell, self)
  • little stashes of ‘study snacks’
  • a radio
  • a truly impressive collection of handbags, accumulated over the last several years

Five things I want to do with my life:

  • work abroad 
  • publish something - both in the academic sphere and out of it
  • travel everywhere and eat all the food
  • bring up children and vainly hope they don’t resent me
  • become at least halfway proficient at applying makeup

Five things I’m into right now:

  • rizwan ahmed (i see no end to this rabbit hole in the near future)
  • roguejedi
  • bipolar disorders in general
  • watching beautifully crafted videos on filmmaking and cinematography
  • hindi/english pop mashups on youtube

Five things on my to-do list:

  • DATA-COLLECTION FOR MY THESIS
  • prepare for my MRCPsych exams
  • get a decent haircut
  • WRITE, GODDAMMIT
  • get to reading extra-curricular stuff once again

Five things people may not know about me:

  • for a long while back in med school i wanted to become an oncologist (yes, it was the emperor of all maladies’ fault)
  • i haven’t seen snow in over seven years
  • although i like reading romance, i’m not a terribly romantic person; romantic gestures make me nervous. my husband, as it turns out, is a huge romantic.
  • i’ve lost most of my interest in cricket. :( can’t remember the last time i saw a full match. (i could once recite entire scorecards from memory)
  • i’m 6 weeks pregnant

not tagging anyone in particular :) if you want to do this, consider yourself tagged.

It’s always kind of funny when the Powerpuff Girls, in fanart, are drawn with fingers and noses and toes and stuff and it’s like…they legit don’t have those in canon. It’s not just a style choice, they actually don’t have fingers and noses.

I mean, apparently Buttercup just sticks her hand to things to pick them up (S03E29 Criss Cross Crisis)

And in Oops, I Did it Again (s06E04B) the girls, when made without Chemical X, come out “normal” and do have fingers, feet, noses, and normal faces.

So like…when everyone in the show calls them “bug-eyed freaks,” “pumpkin heads,” etc, they legit mean the girls have big round heads, giant eyeballs, and stump limbs.

I think it’s safe to say that the Powerpuff Girls are objectively horrifying. I want to see fanart of that.

@myself why are you so weak when it comes to stickers?they’re pieces of paper that stick to things? you do not need them? stop this

Me: (talking to a friend who had just started DMing for the first time) When there’s a chaotic character in play, you need to plan for everything. Including the kitchen sink.

Friend: What would they even do with a kitchen sink though?

Me: I mean they could try to fuck it

Friend: what

Me: I mean they could take off the drain cover and stick their thing in….

Friend: …

Me: ….Anyway just plan for them trying to lick everything and you’ll be fine.

College Headcanons

-Dorms being separated by dynamic. Alphas are always roomed with a Beta whereas an Omega could be roomed with a Beta or another Omega

-Unlike in high school, Alphas and Omegas are allowed to take whatever classes they want and make plans to pursue whatever career they want without anybody correcting them and trying to convince them to stick to things more suited to their dynamic

-A lot of Omegas are greatly criticized for attending college instead of finding an Alpha and starting a family

-If an Alpha is unmated and in college they are highly sought after, an unmated Beta in college is also pretty common, but if you are an unmated Omega in college people will wonder what is wrong with you to where no Alpha has wanted to claim you yet

-Family housing for mated couples or single parents. An unmated Alpha trying to get through college with a kid is seen as the Alpha being a responsible and hardworking parent, whereas being an unmated Omega trying to get through college with a kid is seen as the Omega being selfish and a bad mother

-College is generally when people start feeling more free to get into same dynamic relationships or relationships with more than two people. Its not uncommon to see two Omegas making out or an Omega walking around holding the hands of two Alphas instead of one

-Omegas very dedicated to their education tend to over use heat suppressants to avoid missing classes and tests or losing time that could be spent studying

-An Alpha/Omega couple that have been together since high school and the Alpha relentlessly trying to convince the Omega that they should finally spend a heat together and officially become mates and eventually the Omega is just, “Okay fine, but if you get me pregnant before I graduate I swear to god I will spend the first three months vomiting on everything you love”

-An Alpha and Omega attending colleges really far away from each other so they send little gifts and long letters to each other. Before the Omega’s heats if they are unable to be together, the Alpha will thoroughly scent a couple blankets and send them to the Omega for their nest. The Omega keeping the Alpha on the phone or on a video call so the Alpha can help them through their heats despite not being there. When the Alpha is in class or otherwise unavailable, the Omega will spend their time sending naughty pictures and videos in an attempt to lure their mate back faster, and the Alpha doesn’t mind at all…until they accidentally open a video in middle of class at full volume…

-An Alpha and Omega reminiscing on how they first met in college and the Alpha being all, “I remember seeing you for the first time and being completely blown away by your beauty.” and the Omega is just, “I was wearing coffee stained pokemon pajamas, going on three days of no sleep, screaming at a wall in the library at 4 AM because I accidentally deleted the paper I was working on and I ran out of gummi bears.” and the Alpha just grins, “Yes, simply breath taking…”

Underrated Voltron Dynamics: Pidge and Keith
  • The fite team, living proof that shorter people are closer to hell.
  • Team up to get things off of high shelves.
  • Would probably kill you for Takashi Shirogane. Would probably kill lots of people for Takashi Shirogane.
  • Keith is interested in tech, if not naturally talented with it. He sits next to Pidge and watches the work, and helps a little bit. Handing wrenches and that sort of thing.
  • Twin obsessive personalities. Keith finds a wall and makes a big galactic map that they put sticky notes on. Pins tied together with string. Military strategy interpreted old school cop style.
  • Helps Pidge with the search for the Holt family in the same way. There are file folders. Allura despairs of why Keith is constantly printing things out to stick them to walls. Pidge has no idea why he insists on doing things this way, but appreciates the help.
  • They judge Lance together.
  • Keith teaches Pidge more about really close quarters combat.
  • Pidge is a a bit of a picky eater and Keith is too by nature, even if he’s learned to be flexible. They trade foods at the dinner table if one person likes something and the other person doesn’t.
Focus on yourself. Please. Don’t let your world revolve around someone else, because people are temporary. Do your own things; have your own likes. Don’t do things for them. Do things for you. Don’t stick around waiting for them, don’t give up your all for them because I guarantee you they will leave. Please. Live for yourself.

so when I was in middle school, I started watching Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and I got really obsessed with it and bought all these t-shirts and junk, and I would wear them to school and talk about the show with my friends, but since middle schoolers are dicks sometimes, I got made fun of for liking it, like they would comment on my shirts in super condescending ways, so I stopped wearing all my Foster’s stuff all together and that’s how I learned to be ashamed of what I like and it took me ‘til I was 21 to get over that insecurity

the moral is don’t be a dick and make fun of someone for a harmless thing they like, especially when they have a learning disability and a mental illness that causes them to hyperfixate on things, because that shit will stick with them like fucken crazy glue

Silverflint Domestic AU: Inspired by @mrbarrow‘s awesome Domestic AU gifset. Silver and Flint go back to Miranda’s house and make a peaceful life there with good books, plenty of food, and a comfortable bed. They go fishing, tell each other stories, and tend Miranda’s vegetable garden. It should be too quiet, too sedate, but they’re both so tired of fighting and pretending that it’s only a relief. They’re safe and comfortable and happy together, and finally James can return Flint to the sea and become himself again. 

(Oh, and of course Silver comes home one day with a parrot and Flint is far less than impressed, but his irritation only makes Silver more pleased with his impulse purchase.)


i’m always so thankful that i started to have doubts about my faith when i did. i remember bawling my eyes out over my sins, over and over again. i’m still afraid of god and things like the afterlife, but it no longer holds power over me.

true story - i have been sorted in every house but ravenclaw
