Out-on-a-Limb

The Joji fandom is so weird cuz we want him to blossom and do loads of shit and give us all the content he has to offer but we wouldn’t be able to handle that cuz as soon as he likes a random pic on Instagram people start freaking out and eating their own limbs

Get this: On the last train back to Glasgow on Thursday night whilst standing in the queue for the loo, I made drunk smalltalk with a man who was standing in the queue with me. Our conversation lasted all of two minutes then I went back to my seat two carriages away at my seat with three middle-aged ladies who had been through seeing shows as well. I have my headphones in for about 15 minutes and notice out of the corner of my eye that the guy has appeared and is talking to the ladies. I look up and he starts speaking to me saying he’s going to go out on a limb and tell me that I’m “very attractive” and all the ladies go “awwwww” and I want to die because all this attention is being drawn to me and I don’t want it to be. I reply that I know where this is going and thank you I’m flattered but I’m seeing somebody. Dude does not go away however and the ladies think he’s charming and keep giving him chocolate. He’s at the table opposite for the whole of the journey and misses his stop (or rather because the last train supposedly doesn’t stop at Falkirk idk) asking me and all the ladies all sorts of questions (including saying that me and my ‘other half’ should come and visit Crieff where he lives some day??!!) and talking and talking and by the time we get to glasgow the people (a guy and a girl) behind me whisper to me that I can walk with them so the guy doesn’t follow me or whatnot. They were lovely and I even got a taxi with them back to the East End. They heard the whole thing and said they were cringing so much the whole way for me. I didn’t find him threatening but it would have been nice if he went away after a while.
Guess what! The train guy has FOUND me on facebook even though I don’t remember giving him my last name and has sent me a 300 word message and I’m going to post the whole thing later on and I cannot. I cannot believe this guy. Where do they come from and why do they always find me jfc.

A very muscly dude came through my line with a basket full of glitter. He has them arranged in chromatic order- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet.

I go out on a limb.

“Pride?”

“Hell yeah. I’m gonna Mod Podge the fuck out of my old converse.” Then. “Shit, did I say fuck?” Pause. “Fuck- I said shit.”

I am containing my laughter. 

“Just so you know, the mod podge you have isn’t waterproof- so if they get wet the glitter will probably come off.” 

Wide-eyed pause.

“I’m hoping it rains so I leave a trail of rainbow glitter wherever I go.”

College Packing Do’s and Don’ts

I am currently working on an exhaustive college packing list printable, which will hopefully go out next week. But today, I thought I would do a teaser post including some items that you absolutely should or should not bring to your dorm! 

General Advice

Look at what is going to be in your room first, and don’t start buying until then. For example, if your room has a trashcan, you don’t need to bring an additional trash can.  

Do’s

  • Organizers for around your room. Go to the dollar store and pick out lots of plastic organizers, bins, and baskets for around your room. The key to keeping such a small space like a dorm room clean is making sure everything has a place. Things like school supplies, makeup, keys, random samples, etc. all need a place to live or else your room will get chaotic.
  • Bath robe and shower shoes. I know, saying you need shower shoes is kind of beaten to death at this point. But seriously, don’t even go into the bathroom without flip flops on. And a bath robe is just nice, so that you don’t have to walk around in a towel.
  • Kettle and mini fridge. Save a ton of money by making your own instant coffee or tea in the morning. And having a mini fridge is a necessity for water, snacks, and alcohol. I recommend getting one with a freezer!
  • Fan. This depends on how old your school is, but many res buildings don’t have air conditioning.
  • Cleaning supplies. You’ll want a few supplies on hand to keep your room clean, namely a duster, Windex, and Lysol wipes. However, that is basically all you will need. You don’t need to bring your own broom and vacuum.
  • Batteries, extension cords, and surge protectors. Until you get to the room, you won’t know how your outlets are set up, so extension cords might be a necessity. Batteries and surge protectors are just necessities.
  • Documents, like health and insurance information, your SIN number, and copies of your res agreement. If you need to pick up a prescription or apply for a job, you will need these important documents!
  • First aid kit. Get a pencil case or makeup bag and fill it with the first aid essentials. Pain killers, Polysporin, Band-Aids, Midol, an Ace bandage, etc. But just like with cleaning supplies, don’t go to crazy with things you won’t actually use.

Don’ts

  • Extra furniture and storage, at least until you have done a room tour. I always see packing lists saying to bring an ottoman or a beanbag chair. I disagree. Your room will probably already be cramped, and you will end up sitting on your bed all the time anyways. When it comes to storage, most dorm rooms actually have quite a bit. Having giant Rubbermaid bins and rolling storage carts might just be a waste of space. 
  • Microwave or hot plate. There will likely be a microwave and even a stove on your floor. A microwave takes too much space, and a hot plate is a fire hazard in a small room. You won’t be using them that much anyways.
  • Area rug, curtains, and other large decorations. Definitely bring some photos and small decorative items, but bringing large things like this is a waste of space in the car, as well as money.
  • Iron. Some lists also recommend you bring an iron, but unless you are devoting hours a week to laundry, you’re never going to use it. Most college students don’t even separate whites and colours, let alone iron.
  • Printer. Unless for some reason you are going to be printing hundreds of pages a week, this is not needed. You will probably end up doing readings online and a lot of work is submitted online as well. You can get pages printed for 5 cents, and even when you total the number of pages printed, it will probably be a lot less than buying a printer and paying for ink refills throughout the year.

In case you guys can’t read my handwriting :

“These are photos of my father in my mother’s possessions.”

“Say… Giorno?”

“Hm?”

“Just who is your dad. What’s with these poses?

“I…I don’t know either. What do you guys think?”

“I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he’s an actor.”

“Nah, I think he’s a fashion model.”

“Stripper.”

anonymous asked:

i had to ask someone but do you think there'll be a day where shiro becomes the black lions paladin and keith the red lions paladin again? i really miss those times :/ i want shiro to still be a paladin somehow...

BIG MOOD.

i think there are two possible scenarios here: either real shiro comes back and keith and he share the black lion (or he steps aside for keith) OR, and this is pretty out there, there might be a sixth lion.

this is a wall carving we see in season 3. at first i thought the lion off to the side was a random detail, but a lot of people noticed it. it looks like it might be an entirely separate lion. it’s probably, definitely not that deep, but…

this is the white lion, from the voltron comic. it shows up hidden on arus after the other lions fall into an alternate dimension (cough). i’m really going out on a limb here, but i really like this idea. shiro’s always been set apart from the other paladins in personality and story in some cool ways, and of course = white. maybe that’s where black sent him? maybe he’ll show up on a white horse in a white lion and sweep keith off his feet save voltron.

unfortunately, i think the aesthetic match of everyone having the correct color scheme for their respective lion is gone for good. i’m really hoping the lion swap was a kind of bait and switch, but it doesn’t seem to be going that way. at least black and red go together nicely.

Can you imagine being the, I’m going to go out on a limb and say grad student, who had to dress up like a car seat and drive a car around pretending to be a self-driving car? 

Like, I can imagine someone deciding to just do this for a lark, but this guy was doing it for science.

Surprisingly, it was easy for you to lie yourself and to everyone around you. Flashing a smile anytime someone around you asked you how you were doing. The layers of concealer under your eyelids hiding more than the lack of sleep. You tried to keep yourself busying, burying yourself under piles of books and notes to occupy your mind with anything but Jungkook and how he wrinkled his nose when he smiled.

 In a very strange way you found solace in the amount of schoolwork that was piling up in the pages of your planner. Exams, research papers, and presentations were keeping you out of the house and inside the walls of the library. You were regretting your schedule for this semester, but with the MCAT looming you couldn’t afford to take any risks. Medical school was the light at the end of the tunnel, and not even a bunny toothed boy was enough to keep you distracted.

 Hoseok however, had a problem with the fact that you should probably start paying rent to the librarian. He missed you, constantly sending you reminders to eat and drink water during the hours you were studying. You had regretted the night you told him that you hadn’t eaten since 7 in the morning and 45 minutes later a freckled teenager came into the library with the largest bag of Chinese takeout you had ever seen. And your name was scribbled on the front.

Y/N 9:35 PM: Hobi, I appreciate the thought but can you please stop sending me food while I am in the library.

Hoseok 9: 47 PM: I’ll stop sending you food when you actually sleep in your bed, for once

Sighing, you throw your phone back down on the table. He had a point. You hadn’t slept underneath sheets in weeks. By the time you got home from school you were too tired to make it your bedroom. Every morning waking up regretting the fact that you had decided to buy the lumpiest couch known to man. You knew that this wouldn’t last. That eventually you wouldn’t be able to hide behind the excuses of academics to avoid having a life. You were going to burn out.

But two days later you found yourself in the same position.

Theory time.........

There was something about this whole narrative, that wasn’t adding up for me. I was having a hard time putting my finger on it, then Camila released that description about her album, and it started making more sense.

They want us to believe, this whole narrative took place in 2016, but when you remember back and realize, the 2016 narrative was just a revamped version of the 2015 narrative, it all begins to fall into place.

Everyone latched on to that July 4 2016 Brazil snap, of her alone, writing in a hotel bathroom, while the girls were out celebrating together, as the time she began writing “I have questions”. That’s exactly what Management hoped you’d do. If one paid attention though, you would see that the more important snap happened back in October 2016. She snapped a photo of her writing in a bathroom, with the caption ”destroyed”. First, July - October does not equal 6 months, no matter how crappy your math is. Second, the 7/27 tour was coming to an end, and with that caption, I actually think, that is when she finished writing “I have questions”.

The only tour date they had in early 2016, was Dubai. So, unless she started writing it in a Dubai potty, the rest of early 2016 was spent promoting WFH. She stated she started writing that song, “a little over a year ago” while on tour. I think her “a little over a year ago” means the last few months of 2015, September-November. That she eventually had to face her problems, and she finally went back to the lyrics she started from the year before, and finished the song, then wrote a sad song every day until she got sick of writing sad shit. That song seems to be a catalyst for her, and I’m thinking it probably  “destroyed” her to finally finish it.

Camila was asked recently, in an interview, when her anxiety showed itself and started becoming a real problem for her. Her answer was, 2015. Everything started in 2015. Her anxiety, the fucking narrative, the division, EVERYTHING!!
