I just bought a new journal to begin journaling, but I don’t know how I’ll be able to keep up with it. Any ideas? Your blog is always a refresher for me to just think, even without writing it down and I love it.
Thank you! I really appreciate the compliment and I’m glad this blog has helped you every now and then. To be honest, it keeps me accountable for my own writing, too! :D
The best way I find to keep up with a journal is to just take it everywhere with you. I mean EVERYWHERE. You never know when a cool thought or question will pop into your head and you’ll want to remember it for later.
You don’t have to write long 3 to 5 page entries every single day. You could just write one sentence and it would be good enough. You set the limit of writing you’re comfortable with and quit writing whenever you want to, stop when you feel satisfied you’ve written all you’ve needed to write. That way you don’t get burnt out too quickly.
Hi I was just wondering if you've any tips on writing long essays during an exam? I have my history winter exam next week and it'll be 2 essays both 4 to 5 pages long and halfway through the first my hand writing goes from all neat and legible to did a penguin write this
Dude honestly, I have been going through my old exams and you should see mine. I would say it also looks like a penguin did it! I don’t think there really is a way to stop it from happening besides practising your handwriting and making sure your time management is good enough so you don’t have to rush. When I see people with super neat writing in exams, I do question how they do it :’-) I know you definitely shouldn’t do the “put weight on your pen for studying then take it off before the exam” technique because that could be really bad for your hand muscles! I’d just make sure your pen has a comfortable grip and that you stretch your hands at regular intervals! xx
House of Leaves is odd (even frustrating, at times). But the story is compelling and pulls you in. Unreliable narrator, humour at unexpected places, mystery, loose ends, with just the right amount of spooky.. It’s an autumn read through and through.
In that interview where they say that lance will hit on anything that moves they never specify that he only flirts with girls??? Like, they talk about him flirting more as they meet new aliens and races but they don't limit it to girls [eyes emoji]
done by Lauren Montgomery who’s the co-show runner of VLD, could possibly be a clue for Lance being LGBT. Keith’s holding the “race” sign, Hunk has a hand on Keith’s shoulder and is helping hold the sign with his other hand (Keith learned that he’s part of the Galra race and Hunk was the first person we see on screen talking to Keith about it and like, being supportive of him), there’s Pidge and Allura holding the “gender” sign, Allura has her arms around Pidge and is leaning into her almost as if she’s hugging her (Pidge hid her actual gender identity so she could sneak into the Garrison, Allura later was the first to try and interact with Pidge on the topic when she learned Pidge was a girl because they have something in common as they are both ladies), so it could be possible that since Lance is holding the LGBT sign with both hands and Shiro has a hand on his shoulder and is helping hold the sign, maybe Lance is gonna come to terms with him being bisexual/pansexual/etc and Shiro might be the one he interacts with first on the subject and will be the one supporting him about it first?
or it could be just an equality positivity drawing with no deeper meaning about the characters’ story arcs in the show that Lauren did during the election, which is totally fine! i just find it interesting she had Keith holding the race sign, and Pidge holding the gender sign and those signs coincidentally having a relation to their character arcs while having Lance hold the LGBT sign… 👀
there is also the fact that there was an entire episode where the team was on a planet that’s color scheme was all bisexual flag pride colors and rainbows
(coincidentally the episode where 1. Pidge comes out as a girl to the team (a clear metaphor for being trans which doesn’t actually have anything to do with bisexuality however it’s part of the LGBT community), 2. Keith is shown to be visibly and audibly impatient to get Lance out of the healing pod, 3. him being upset by Lance not remembering the Bonding Moment™ (”we had a bonding moment! i cradled you in my arms!”), 4. Keith appearing to be salty upon seeing Lance flirt with Allura and Nyma), and 5. Keith rescuing Lance’s lion, playfully flirting with teasing him at the end of the episode and flying off to go unchain Lance
So i mean, i’m not saying it wwwwiiiiiiilllllllll turn out to be true, but i honestly would not be surprised if Lance had an arc where he discovers himself/comes to terms with being bi.
i mean, i would be surprised (’cause sadly we can’t know for sure if this’ll happen), but like, i’d be able to say that i totally saw it coming.
