1 minute into the making and this

anonymous asked:

My manager just told today me that I go the bathroom too much. The bathroom. Because I have someone cover the fitting room for me 3 times in an 8 hour shift for just a few minutes. WTF? All I wanna do is pee in peace. 1) I'm trying to stay hydrated 2) I'm on meds that make me have to go to the bathroom more often anyway. So i guess having bodily functions is no longer allowed for retail workers.

4: “Children can’t be that hard”


“Hobinnie buddy I know” he cooed as the 1 year old wailed “you’re going to make yourself sick” he continued as he rock his son lightly. “Mama” Hobin sobbed out “she went to get the mail from the lobby” Jaebum promised. “She didn’t leave you forever just 10 minutes max” he cooed. “Daddy is as good as mommy” he says as Hobin looked at his father for a moment as the tears stopped briefly. Hobin’s bottom lip twitched as Jaebum sighed bringing the boy close to him. He heard light whining from Hobin.

Hobin managed to cry himself to the point he wanted to sleep before the front door opened. He instantly bursted into tears for you “mama” he cried as you put the mail down and instantly took your boy from his father. “You’re such an actor” Jaebum claims as his son laid in your arms peacefully. “He was calm for like 3 minutes before you came in” he explained as Hobin let out a sigh. “He’s happy with mommy right?” you asked Hobin who nods “mama’s boy” Jaebum mumbles as he watches you head into the living room “Jackson’s daughter loves me but not my son” he continues grabbing the mail.

You heard something muffled. It sounded more familiar as it got closer and clearer. It got loud enough to shoot you right off your bed.

“Oh my god!” You yelled as you shut off your alarm and checked the time. You had 15 minutes to get ready, run to the kindergarten, pick up the kids, and take the bus to the park for the field trip.

You thanked god for making you take a shower the night before and quickly pulled out anything that smelled clean. You wore a blue and white striped shirt with a white skirt. You quickly applied some light make up before slipping on a pair of white sandals. You ran down the street to catch a taxi. One of them finally stopped for you and you got in. You gave him the address and he drove you to the kindergarten you worked in.

He stopped at the main entrance as you quickly paid and left. You jogged to your class and the kids were scattered all around the classroom. You tried not to panic and called them one by one and had them line up so you can take them to the bus station.

You finally walked out of the kindergarten followed by six kids lined up one after the other. The bus stop was empty which meant one thing: you missed the bus. And you also missed the trip. And you will lose money for simply being late. You looked down at the kids who sat next you, excitedly waiting for the bus that will take them to the park. You felt bad for them more than yourself.

“Um…kids, look, we were suppo-” a loud honk cut you off. You jumped a little as it was so loud and sudden. You turned around and saw a black jeep car parked in front of the bus stop.

You stared at it in confusion trying to figure out if it was meant for you. You looked around, but there wasn’t anyone except you and the kids. You looked back at the car and the driver’s door opened.

You stepped back, standing in front of the kids, trying to protect them in case this guy was planning to harm you or them in some way.

He stepped out of the car and you relaxed. He was tall and was wearing a suit. The first thing you thought of was: why isn’t he on the runway?

He casually walked around the car to your side and opened the passenger door, gesturing you to get in.

“Excuse me?” You told him, furrowing your eyebrows.

“Get in. I’ll take you there” he said casually. Your mouth opened slightly in disbelief.

“Excuse me? You think I’ll just get in? And leave these kids here?! I’m responsible for them!” Your voice rose as you got madder.

“Then I’ll just take that money off your month’s salary” he told you, giving you his back to walk to his side of the car.

“Wait what? Who are you to say that?!” You yelled at him. How dare he come ask you to get in his car while you have kids with you. And now he interferes with your salary and that pushed you to the edge.

“Oh you might as well hand me my kids” he told you from then driver’s seat, through the the passenger’s window.

“Your kids! Sorry, I’m a responsible teacher. I know every parent of every child with me right now. Go fool someone else” you huffed and crossed your arms over your chest.

You glanced at him and saw him laughing to himself. You frowned in confusion at his weird reaction. What’s so funny?

“I’m so glad I hired you, y/n” he smiled at you cheekily.

It took you a good minute to get what he said. It hit you right in the face and you automatically bowed and apologized.

You felt a finger push your shoulder back up. You looked up at him and he smiled down at you.

“I’m sorry Mr. Chae. I never knew how you looked like” you told him as embarrassment dropped your gaze to the ground.

“Get in the car. This is your last chance” he said and opened the back door.

You quickly got the kids in and squeezed yourself in. The door barely closed and you looked at Mr. Chae whom was looking at you, frowning.

“Is there a problem?” You asked him, trying to sound as polite as possible.

“You’re not riding gunshot?”

“And leave the kids alone in the back? That’s dangerous. Especially now that we’re having some over capacity” you smiled.

“Ah,” he raised his index finger, “right right.”

He finally drove away from the bus station and to the park. You stayed quiet along with Mr. Chae as the kids filled the silence with happy screams and noise.

“We’re here!” Mr. Chae announced, parking his car in front of the park and the kids cheered.

“Kids! One by one!” You instructed as you opened up the door and the kids jumped out of the car excitedly.

You shook your head and smiled. As you were getting out of the car, your foot slipped. You screamed and just when you were about to fall on the pavement, his arms held you tightly.

You froze and quickly stabled yourself, bowing to Mr. Chae. He chuckled and you fixed your dress then ran after the kids.

You told the kids to play around one area so they won’t get scattered around the park then sat on a bench and watched them. You smiled at them since they were radiating nothing but happiness and innocence.

“It’s nice to watch, isn’t it?” You heard Mr. Chae. You were about to stand up, but he pushed you down gently before sitting down next to you.

“Yes, sir” you told him.

“Drop the formality” he told you and you looked at him in confusion.

As you two were watching the kids play around, the ball they were playing with flew and landed right on Mr. Chae’s lap.

“Oh” he laughed and stood up.

You watched him walk to the kids and kick the ball softly. Soon enough they were all laughing together as they played. You smiled at Mr. Chae, not aware that he had already caught you staring but he just pretended he didn’t.

“How was that?!” He asked you as he walked back to the bench. You laughed and clapped.

“Y/n” he suddenly sounded serious. And he also came a bit closer and his arm was stretched on the bench’s back behind you.

“Yes?” Your heart raced as he got closer and closer. His face was so close to you and you hoped the kids won’t see it. You felt a bit weird as to why he’s suddenly doing this.

“Would you like some dinner later tonight?” He asked quietly. His voices sent chills down your spine. He sounded so flirty and you were taken back by his sudden offer.

“Sure” you smiled nervously, moving back slightly.

“Actually,” he started, sitting back and crossing his arms.

“I’ve been watching you for a while” he said and your heart jumped. Your cheeks heated and you avoided his gaze.

“I..I mean, you’re my type and the way you treat the kids and your responsibility..I really like that” he smiled and you looked at him again. You smiled at him.

“I hope it’s clear to you” he sounded nervous this time. He cleared his throat and you giggled.

“So, still in for tonight?” He asked and you nodded, smiling at him.

“Ooo” you heard the kids coo. You two quickly sat back, keeping some distance.

You glanced at him and he was already smiling at you.

That smile was the beginning to a very new and happy chapter of not only your life. But his life too.

Steak, Potato and Radish Salad

Ingredients:

  • 300g potatoes
  • 2 x 2cm thick rib eye steak
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 200g radish
  • 1 romaine lettuce
  • 50g rocket

for the dressing:

  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1,5tbsp dijon mustard

Directions:

Peel and cut the potatoes into chunky pieces. Place in a pan of water and bring to the boil. When boiling, simmer for 5-6 minutes, then drain well. Spill into a roasting tin, drizzle with 2 tbsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30-35 minutes until the potatoes are golden and crispy.

Make sure the steaks have come to room temperature prior cooking. Rub the meat with 1 tbsp oil, then season well with salt and pepper. Sear the steaks in a very hot frying pan for about 2 minutes on each side (this will leave them rare, so if you prefer medium-rare, make it 3 minutes each side). Rest the steaks once they are cooked for at least 5 minutes.

For the dressing, mix all the ingredients together, then season with salt to you liking.

Slice the peppers, onions, radish and romaine lettuce thinly. Slice the steak as thinly as you can, then add to a plate with all vegetables and rocket and top with dressing.

Bon Appétit!

I was tagged by @books-and-barns and @phdpaws to tell 5 things I like about myself. I’ll tag @megafaunaadventures @loki-lo @ollietherottweiler @ashtay-keywork 

1. I am adaptable. It may take me a minute if something is really new or changes my way of thinking but I always come around if evidence is sufficient enough. That makes me able to grow and learn. 

2. I’m good with kids. My job centers around kids and it always makes me smile when we split the kids up into groups and the kids get excited when they’re with me. 

3. I’ve grown with my “laid-back-ness” with my dogs. I used to be so stressed out when Dusty would vacuum other people’s floors because he would get sick so easily. I wouldn’t be able to let the dogs run around unless they were right next me the entire time. Now that I’ve calmed down a metric-fuckton, I’m much more happy, the dogs are much more happy, and I don’t mind people coming over or Dusty going over to people’s houses. Dusty actually gets sick a lot less now that I let him scavenge. Obviously I don’t let him scavenge if it’s dangerous but letting him do a little bit of vacuuming and bottom-feeding has really helped everyone. 

4. I know a lot of useless trivia. Especially in regards to animals. I could make a “Cranium” board game based off my animal trivia alone. I’m fun at parties ;p 

5. I have nice hats. 

I wish we didnt live in such an age of definite knowledge. I wish i could make a game and put a 1 in a millionth chance of meeting a wendigo in that damn game so only a few chosen people in the world would be like “guys i totally saw a wendigo in that game the other day” because nowadays youll just get 5 people on 4chan decrypting all the files of your game within 20 minutes to find the damn wendigo sprites

hey,,, tumblr,, i got some constructive criticism on ur “safe mode” policy.

1. let users chose what to see and not see. you say that we have more control over what we see, we dont we have the same control because youre controlling it for us

2. specify why the post is being filtered

3. make it have a “show this post anyway” button on blocked posts

4. just refine it so it doesnt block posts seemingly at random. In the span of about five minutes I have found blocked posts including

  • a post about sonic the hedgehog
  • a post about the heatwave in europe
  • a post about skyrim
  • a video of birds dancing
  • multiple posts about being gay

things it did not filter out: porn, both real, and drawn/written

k thx bye

Never underestimate the creativity (or perversion) of your players

DM gave my character a ring that allowed me to change a letter or drop a letter of a spell I could cast. The spell will reflect its new name. So a spell like Fireball would become Firball (sharp pine needles explode in a radius), Blur became Slur (if cast on a magic user, they can’t use spells with verbal components), Slow becomes Plow (till a field in a minute), etc.

I’m looking down my list of spells after I get the ring to see what mayhem I can cause & I don’t make it past the cantrips before I start laughing so hard I start to cry. I look up at the DM with a huge grin on my face.

“From now on I will only be casting Vicious Cockery at my enemies. It still does 1d4 psychic damage, but instead of insulting them, a disembodied dick smacks them in the face.”

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Jupiter, we’ve got quite the photoshoot planned for you. Today, our Juno spacecraft is flying directly over the Great Red Spot, kicking off the first-ever close-up study of this iconic storm and passing by at an altitude of only 5,600 miles (9,000 kilometers). In honor of this historic event, below are 10 things to know about the planet’s most famous feature.

1. A Storm That Puts Others to Shame

The Great Red Spot is a gigantic, high-pressure, ancient storm at Jupiter’s southern hemisphere that’s one of the longest lasting in the solar system. It’s so large, about 1.3 Earths could fit inside of it. And you can bet you’ll get swept away—the storm’s tumultuous winds peak at about 400 mph.

2. How Old Is It? 

The Great Red Spot has been swirling wildly over Jupiter’s skies for the past 150 years—maybe even much longer. While people saw a big spot on Jupiter when they started stargazing through telescopes in the 1600s, it’s still unclear whether they were looking at a different storm. Today, scientists know the Great Red Spot has been there for a while, but they still struggle to learn what causes its swirl of reddish hues.

3. Time for That Close-Up 

Juno will fly over the Great Red Spot about 12 minutes after the spacecraft makes the closest approach to Jupiter of its current orbit at 6:55 p.m. on July 10, PDT (9:55 p.m. on July 10, EDT; 1:55 a.m. on July 11, Universal Time). Juno entered orbit around Jupiter on July 4, 2016.

4. Oh, So Mysterious 

Understanding the Great Red Spot is not easy, and it’s mostly Jupiter’s fault. The planet a thousand times as big as Earth and consists mostly of gas. A liquid ocean of hydrogen surrounds its core, and the atmosphere consists mostly of hydrogen and helium. That translates into no solid ground (like we have on Earth) to weaken storms. Also, Jupiter’s clouds make it hard to gather clear observations of its lower atmosphere.

5. Help From Hawaii 

To assist Juno’s investigation of the giant planet’s atmosphere, Earth-based telescopes lent their helpful eyes. On May 18, 2017, the Gemini North telescope and the Subaru Telescope—both located on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea peak—simultaneously examined Jupiter in very high resolutions at different wavelengths. These latest observations helped provide information about the Great Red Spot’s atmospheric dynamics at different depths and at other regions of Jupiter.

6. Curious Observations 

Observations from Subaru showed the Great Red Spot “had a cold and cloudy interior increasing toward its center, with a periphery that was warmer and clearer,” said Juno science team member Glenn Orton of our Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. “A region to its northwest was unusually turbulent and chaotic, with bands that were cold and cloudy, alternating with bands that were warm and clear.”

7. Hot in Here 

Scientists were stumped by a particular question: Why were the temperatures in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere comparable to those found at Earth, even though Jupiter is more than five times the distance from the sun? If the sun isn’t the heat source, then what is? Turns out, the storm in the Great Red Spot produces two kinds of turbulent energy waves that collide and heat the upper atmosphere. Gravity waves are much like how a guitar string moves when plucked, while acoustic waves are compressions of the air (sound waves). Heating in the upper atmosphere 500 miles (800 kilometers) above the Great Red Spot is thought to be caused by a combination of these two wave types “crashing,” like ocean waves on a beach.

8. Color Theory 

Scientists don’t know exactly how the Great Red Spot’s rich colors formed. Studies predict Jupiter’s upper atmosphere has clouds consisting of ammonia, ammonium hydrosulfide, and water, but it’s still unclear how or even whether these chemicals react. “We’re talking about something that only makes up a really tiny portion of the atmosphere,” said Amy Simon, an expert in planetary atmospheres at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “That’s what makes it so hard to figure out exactly what makes the colors that we see.” Over at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, researchers concluded that the ruddy color is likely a product of simple chemicals being broken apart by sunlight in the planet’s upper atmosphere. “Our models suggest most of the Great Red Spot is actually pretty bland in color, beneath the upper cloud layer of reddish material,” said Kevin Baines, a Cassini scientist at JPL.

9. Been There, Haven’t Seen That 

In January and February 1979, NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft zoomed toward Jupiter, capturing images of the Great Red Spot during its approach. Still, we’ve never been as close as we’re about to get during Juno’s flyover on July 10.

10. Simply Beautiful 

This image of a crescent Jupiter and the iconic Great Red Spot was created by a citizen scientist, Roman Tkachenko, using data from Juno’s JunoCam instrument. JunoCam’s raw images are available here for the public to peruse and enhance.Want to learn more? Read our full list of the 10 things to know this week about the solar system HERE.

[TianShan Week]

Day 1: Pursuit

…an effort to secure your very own Guan Shan!

Oh man, why do I keep making mini-comic when I don’t have much time~ XD

Pretends I’m not living in UK time… *whistles*

This summer if you have the time off maybe try picking up a completely new language! The challenge lasts for however long your summer break lasts and you;

1) pick a completely new language you’ve never studied before

2) make a realistic goal for what you want to achieve out of this time (e.g. reading a beginning book in your target language, maybe having a short conversation with a native/advanced speaker, finishing a Duolingo tree etc)

3) commit to practicing it for a allotted time everyday (it could be 20 minutes to 2hrs everyday what matters is that you stick w/ it!)

4) immerse yourself in that language; listen to music and podcasts, watch movies and tv in your target language, change your tech to the target language-really surround yourself w/ the language

If you decide to take on this challenge make an intro post describing;

  •  who you are
  •  your target language
  • why you are choosing that language
  • what your goal is
  • how long you have for break/summer
  • tag it with #summer language challenge

Then every week

  • post abt something related to your target language (e.g. good movie you watched, cool words, accomplishments you made, vocab you learned etc)
  • post something in your target language (it can be anything)
  • progress on your goal(s)
  • tag it with #summer language challenge

At the end of your break make a post abt how you did. Hopefully you’ll have exceeded your expectations and gotten a solid foundation in your target language while having a series of posts that document your journey!

BON VOYAGE S2. EP2 HIGHLIGHTS:
  • Based on what each person ate from the snacks given to them, the team were decided: Namjin, Sope and maknae line were matches decided by heaven
  • Taekook fighting because V kept making jokes but at the end, they did what Tae proposed: saying Bon Voyage one by one without breaking the chain
  • Bts playing hid and seek to decide each team pocket money: They caught Namjoon only after 10 min and Taehyung kept finding Jimin instead of the opponent team … it was a mess.
  • Jin and Rapmon get handed 100$ (1st place), The holy trinity won 70$ (2nd place) and Jhope and Suga 50$ (3rd place)

The members are asked to not spend their personal money and only what they were given to buy both food and souvenirs. However, before that they all went swimming: 

  • They get in a boat and for 1 minute they all screamed “WOAH” and “WOW” every time a fish jumped from the sea
  • Jin English time while blowing kisses to the captain
  • Jimin dropping his towel in the water and Jungkook proposing to go in but a swimmer go in first (Jungkook also screamed “JIMIN SHIII” when he heard he dropped his belonging in water)
  • The members decide to dive in, Jimin go in first followed by Jin,  rapmon, Jungkook, Suga, Taehyung and Jhope who was super scared (duh) goes in last in the cutest way possible while holding his nose
  • The members are given a shell and only Jimin is able to make the sound come out 
  • BTS go snorkeling next: it was just so beautiful: They were like mermen in water. They even posed under the sea. Jhope was the only one who had some difficulties to dive, but he quickly figured it out

It is time to divide into teams: 

  • Everyone kept saying Aloha to a anyone and everyone
  • Maknae line visited souvenir stores, played games, and made bets all the time. They went to the beach (JK got hit by a wave and ended up drenched knowing that he was standing next to Vmin). They ended up buying pens because all three of them will use them for either writing or drawing. 
  • Namjin had more deep conversations and they were basically like some elderly couple that lived a happy marriage or some very close friends that were together since childhood, their synergy is no joke: The cutest was when Jin was helping Namjoon to blend the sunscreen on his face. While on the beach they made stacked stones (7 of them each) and prayed for the well-being of BTS. They ate dinner and when it was time for desert they watched the sunset and made poems. Jin also spoke about how he changed after the Fire era and that making people happy makes him happy too
  • Sope have different personalities and that’s why they complimented each other so well: They had matching Henna tattoos: they got turtles with a peace sign even if Suga wanted them to get hearts? Jhope spoke about his worries concerning his mixtape and wished for it to do well. 
  • The members gathered at the end of the day, sang together while having a drink and showed what each team bought. 
  • Tony: So I can either bake these cookies at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or 4,000 degrees for 1 minute.
  • Steve: Tony, no that's NOT how to bake cookies.
  • Tony: fLOOR IT??
  • Steve: STARK, N O-
  • Tony: hOW ABOUT 4,000,000 DEGREES IN 1 SECOND???
  • Bucky: tONY, YOU'RE GONNA BURN THE TOWER DOWN--
  • Tony: I'M GOING TO HARNESS THE FUCKING SUN TO MAKE COOKIES!
  • Steve/Bucky: tONY, PLEASE-
  • Taehyung: So, I can either bake these cookies at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, or 4,000 degrees for 1 minute.
  • Jimin: Taehyung no THAT'S NOT HOW YOU BAKE COOKIES
  • Taehyung: FLOOR IT
  • Jungkook: TAEHYUNG NO
  • Taehyung: HOW ABOUT 4,000,000 DEGREES FOR 1 SECOND
  • Yoongi: TAEHYUNG YOU'RE GOING TO BURN THE HOUSE DOWN
  • Taehyung: I'M GOING TO HARNESS THE FUCKING SUN TO MAKE COOKIES
  • Everyone: TAEHYUNG P L E A S E
5 Biggest Myths About Planned Parenthood: DEBUNKED

There is a lot of misinformation out there about Planned Parenthood — much of which has been pushed forward by anti-women’s health politicians and groups focused on blocking patients from turning to Planned Parenthood health centers for reproductive health care.

They’re trying to block people with Medicaid coverage from accessing preventive care at Planned Parenthood health centers — including birth control, cancer screenings, and STD/STI testing and treatment.


Myth #1: Other providers can absorb Planned Parenthood’s patient base

As experts have demonstrated over and over again, community health centers don’t have the capacity to absorb the 2.4 million Planned Parenthood patients.

Repeating the same lie over and over again doesn’t make it true. So when House Speaker Paul Ryan and other anti-abortion politicians in Washington say that the country’s overburdened, publicly funded community health centers (CHCs) will take up the slack in the event these politicians “defund” Planned Parenthood, don’t believe them for a minute. Better yet, call your U.S. senators to let them know the facts.

Defunding,” by the way, doesn’t stop federal taxpayer money from paying for abortions – because federal law already prohibits federal dollars from going to abortion, except in dire circumstances. Instead, “defunding” simply blocks patients who rely on public health care funds from getting care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

Read More: No, Community Health Centers Cannot Absorb Planned Parenthood Patients


Myth #2: Planned Parenthood is unpopular and should be defunded

20 separate nationwide polls and an additional 12 polls in key states show strong favorability for Planned Parenthood and strong opposition to efforts in Congress to block patients from accessing high-quality, lifesaving care at Planned Parenthood.

These poll results stem from the deep and longstanding relationship that many Americans have with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading provider of reproductive health care and sex education. For a century, people have relied on Planned Parenthood for care and information, and each year Planned Parenthood health centers serve millions of patients essential services, such as birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, safe and legal abortion, and other high-quality health care.

An estimated one in five American women has relied on Planned Parenthood for care in her lifetime.

Myth #3: Planned Parenthood uses federal tax dollars for abortions

Does the Government Fund Planned Parenthood?

With all the talk in Washington about “defunding Planned Parenthood,” you might think there’s a specific, Planned Parenthood line item in the federal budget that Congress and the president can just zero out. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Most federal funds come through Medicaid, the government-funded health insurance plan for people with low incomes. Just like other kinds of insurance, Medicaid reimburses Planned Parenthood’s doctors and nurses for the preventive medical services they provide, including lifesaving cancer screenings, HIV tests, and birth control.

Read More: How Federal Funding Works at Planned Parenthood


Myth #4: Planned Parenthood has its own line item in the federal budget

Fact: There is no line item in the federal budget that goes to Planned Parenthood.

The phrase “defunding” Planned Parenthood is a misnomer.

Planned Parenthood does not receive a blank check from the federal government.

Just like hospitals, Planned Parenthood health centers get Medicaid reimbursements for critical services provided to low-income patients — services like birth control, cancer screenings, and STD testing and treatment.

And per the Hyde Amendment (which has been the law for more than 40 years) — federal Medicaid funds do not go toward abortion (with limited exceptions outlined under Hyde).

More than 50% of Planned Parenthood’s patients rely on Medicaid to access preventive care. The Senate’s “Trumpcare” bill would block many Americans from getting the affordable health care they rely on.


Myth #5: “Defunding” Planned Parenthood will save the country money

No, “defunding” Planned Parenthood will not save the country money.

Efforts to shut down Planned Parenthood threaten to harm women’s health and their economic security. And these efforts don’t make fiscal sense for the country — every public dollar spent on family planning services is estimated to save the government $7.09 in state and federal dollars.
