I know everyone just wants to relax during the summer, but you shouldn’t just let those 3-4 months waste away! Stay productive and you will thank yourself in the fall. Here are some ways to stay productive and continue challenging yourself in the summer!
Practice a foreign language - If you’re already studying a foreign language, use this time to practice! It takes a lot of effort to learn a language, and you can’t slack off in the summer.
Do a reading challenge - This summer I’m going to be doing a small chunk of the Gilmore Girls reading challenge. Summer is a great time to read some great books and help yourself become a well-read person.
Preview your fall classes - Get ahead! If you know what textbooks you’re using in the fall, start reading them! Read up about your classes online and get ahead so that you can put yourself in the best position possible for the fall.
Apply for scholarships - College isn’t cheap! Now that you have some free time to write some scholarship essays, try to get yourself some money!
Crashcourse (features literature, history, chemistry, and a ton more!)
Start a bullet journal - Bullet journals are the best way to get organized in my opinion, and once you start, it becomes a part of your life. If you start journaling now, you’ll be incredibly prepared for the next semester!
Episode/Chapter: That Butler, Competitive [Ep. 15, Chp. 21]
Yield: 12 curry buns
There are multiple kuro entries for each recipe in the anime/manga. Check out my ‘kuroshitsuji cookbook’ tag for more.
Image and recipe source are not the same.
1 cup flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tbs. oil
½ cup warm water
Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Add oil and enough of the water to make dough. You may not use all the water. Knead the dough and let it sit for 15 minutes. Divide the dough into 12 balls and roll each ball into a circle on a floured surface.
For Chicken Curry:
1 lb. chicken breasts cut into small chunks
1 tsp. minced garlic
¼ cup oil
¼ cup curry powder
½ tsp. red pepper flakes
Mix the oil, garlic, curry powder and red pepper flakes in a non-stick pan. This creates a paste. Add the chicken and coat it with the paste. Cook on medium heat until the chicken is fully cooked.
1 egg, beaten
Place a small spoonful of chicken into the middle of one dough circle. Fold the top of the dough down over the chicken and then the bottom up. Fold the left side over and then the right. This makes a packet of curry.
Dip the packet in the egg and then roll it in the panko until completely covered. Repeat with the other circles.
Fill the bottom of a non-stick pan with oil and let it heat over medium heat. Once hot, place a few of the curry buns in the pan. Let them cook for a couple minutes until brown and then turn over. Once both sides are brown, remove from the pan and let cool on paper towel. Repeat with the rest of the buns.
Use more of less curry to taste. If you use more or less, change the amount of oil, as well. The measurements need to be the same to make a paste. This recipe does not make a “sauce.” The chicken is coated in the curry to make wrapping it easier and to get full flavor. Otherwise, the sauce runs out or becomes left behind in the pan.
This game is for Adults and is 18+ and goes on for about 15 minutes with 3 different choices - 43 different images are contained within, total. (You can fast forward to the choice after you’ve done the beginning once.)
I’ve gone ahead and uploaded edited versions of the songs to the Flora Bandcamp, in an exercise of learning a little about mastering. (I hate doing it.)
If it doesn’t run properly, I think running in administrator mode can help? I’m not too experienced with Ren'Py problems. A thank you to Marl for putting this all in Ren'Py for me! (It should run on Windows, Mac, and Linux)
I posted my progress to my Patreon as I got small chunks done, so if you’re interested in adult art and also keeping up on this stuff before it’s posted to Tumblr, please consider checking it out! I don’t know when I’ll get around to Part 2 since I have other ideas I want to work on, too, but if enough people like this, I might bump it forward.

When I was in 5th grade, I was in this school with a huge school yard. All the elementary and junior high kids would play in there. It was in the winter and it snowed like crazy the previous night so my friends and I were having a snowball fight. These kids from the 7th grade come out and ask to join us. Of course, we didn’t know they weren’t just wanting to play and let them join. We were throwing small snowballs when those kids take out chunks of ice and start throwing them. One hits my friend in the nose and he starts bleeding. They fake-apologize and drop the ice.
Then later, when we were having a building competition, they picked the chunks back up again. We knew they were going to continue throwing until someone gets seriously injured so we snuck into their backpacks took out some folders & textbooks and buried them in the snow. Then the kids’ mom came and right when they got in the car, we threw one huge snowball in right before they shut the door. Have fun tomorrow in school you jerks.

Feast your eyes on the prettiest cake in the world! This Rawesome Vegan Life’s “Raw Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting” is this week’s ridiculously attractive Sanctuary Sweets dessert—
Cashew Frosting 2 cups cashews, preferably soaked for a couple hours 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil 1/3 cup maple syrup Water, as needed
Cake 2 large carrots, peeled 1 ½ cups oat flour or buckwheat flour 1 cup dates 1 cup dried pineapple (or more dates) ½ cup dried coconut ½ teaspoons cinnamon
To make the frosting: blend all ingredients in your high speed blender until smooth, adding as little water as possible. Taste it - mmm. Put in a bowl and set aside. To make the cake: cut the carrots into small chunks. Then throw all the ingredients (including the carrots) in your food processor and pulse until it’s all in really small pieces and sticks together. Assembly: Press half the cake mix into the bottom of an adjustable spring-form pan, mine was about 6 inches. Then spread on about 1/3 of the frosting. Put it in the freezer until the layer of frosting is hard. Then press on the rest of the cake mix. I let it set in the fridge overnight, then frosted the whole thing, but you can do it right away if you want. Take it out of the pan and use the remaining frosting, cover with whatever garnishes you like. Enjoy!
Just a small chunk of my huge family (bby me off on the right side with the blue). We had just finished preparing and seasoning the food and packing snacks right before heading off to spend the day at the river in the mountain areas of La Vega. I love how this picture shows how varied in our beautiful hues of brown my family is :)My most treasured memories will always be how together and happy our family was during those times when we’d take trips to the rivers and beaches and stay the day. - Circa ~1995 - Dominican Rep.
