If you’ve followed me for a while you might have seen my post a few weeks ago about improving your handwriting. In that post I explained that tracing a printed page with a mixture of words is fantastic for adapting your writing. I have managed to upload them to Google Drive for you to download.
As a disclaimer, I do not own either of the fonts I have used and am not distributing the fonts - but merely a PDF using them. You are unable to edit or download the font from that document but can download them via dafont.com. I hope they’re useful!
I’ve been really inspired by some of the studyblrs with amazing handwriting, and @emmastudies did a great post a while back about how to change your handwriting within just a few days. I went ahead and made two practice sheets for myself that I wanted to share with you guys, one in cursive and one in print. The cursive one is actually gray type when you print it so you can see your pen marks more easily over where they’re supposed to be to compare! Let me know if these are helpful to you!
The College Republicans at Central Michigan released a statement on the group’s Facebook page Wednesday, saying the valentine was created at a meeting and given away without the organization’s knowledge.
According to campus newspaper Central Michigan Life, “Mackenzie Flynn, president of CMU’s College Republicans, said the bags were meant for members only. One member allegedly printed a page of Valentine’s Day memes to cut out and place inside each bag. One meme contained the Holocaust pun.” Read more (2/9/17 9:14 PM)
-Wake him up for school/work/breakfast (Waking up to Mommy kisses is better than waking up to a noisy jump out of your skin alarm clock).
-Make him breakfast.
-Know his health problems, issues and allergies.
-Make sure he takes his medicine.
-Draw him a bubble bath, lots of bubbles. LOTS of bubbles.
-Help him with any studying or classwork he may have. Midterms and finals suck.
-Set up a rewards system with stickers or fake money to “cash in” for special things or an outing.
-Know his favorite characters and cartoons. (This includes Pokemon!)
-Watch said favorite cartoons with him.
-Let him crawl in your lap and snuggle.
-Snuggle him any and everywhere you can.
-Build a blanket fort with him.
-Color with him
-Print out coloring pages/ buy coloring books for him (Littles need variety!)
-Talk to him. Ask him about his feelings, his day, all that.
-Lay out his clothes for him.
-Set up a bedtime that you BOTH can adhere to, no little should be going to bed alone if it’s preventable.
-Let him know that he can wake you up anytime during the night whether he can’t sleep, has a nightmare or just wakes up earlier than you.
-Let him cry. It doesn’t matter if you don’t always understand his feelings and emotions, it matters that you be there for him when he needs it.
-Spray his pillow with your perfume while you’re gone for the day.
-Make/pack his lunch how he likes it so he eats well when you’re working/adulting.
-Pick him up. Littles love rides!
- Know his stuffies, his blankies and his binkies.
-Keep his sippies clean and full.
-Make him a physical little space where he can burrow up in when he’s in his mental little space. (under the table with pillows and stuffies, in the corner or a whole bedroom decorated in things he likes)
-Keep him company when he’s sick. Watch his favorite movie with him and make him soup with fun shapes.
-Let them be little! The world is hard on everyone. He comes to you for refuge. Remind him why he picked you to be her Mommy out of all the other Mommies in the world.
-Love him. Whether he is whiny, bratty, or downright all out bitchy. Love him. He loves you when you’re the same way. Yes, Mommies can be bitches.
As you can see, there are plenty of things to do with your little boy that doesn’t require sex. Being intimate with your little is important, but sex isn’t the only intimacy out there.
Rebecca Bunch vs. Internalized Misogyny, Heteronormativity, and Fear of Rejection: An Essay by Someone in Way Too Deep
“I can’t find anybody to love me. Like, real love. Like, boy-girl love. I mean, that’s okay, that’s gender-normative. But you get what I’m saying, right?” Rebecca laments to her dream-ghost in “Josh has No Idea Where I Am!”. Rebecca understands heteronormativity in theory but she can’t apply it to her own life. She views “boy-girl love” and romantic love as one-in-the-same because she’s been taught that heterosexual love is the holy grail of fulfillment. Pre-series her relationships with women were always defined by competition and anxiety and so, Rebecca sticks to the heterosexual mold, unable to understand her latent attraction to women.
therealsjmaas: Finished drafting Catwoman late last night (yay!!!), so now it’s time to fuel up on caffeine and dive into my ACOWAR copyedits! 🎉☕️📖🖊💕 Current length: 693 pages…or 193k words–aka literally the same length as EOS (though the official page count will be different when it gets formatted from a manuscript into the fancy/finished/printed pages). Can’t wait to dive back into this world!! 😄💖💖
The past 12 months were accursed, and they were
acclaimed. They were at times sad and joyful and, without a
doubt, "yuge.“ They provided moments of profound joy and robbed
us of living legends. Stars were born, and others approached rock bottom;
curses died, and miracles came to life. A few names stood at the
center of it all.
These are not all stars, nor saints. They are not
necessarily the best athletes, nor even the most decorated. Instead they
are those that most captivated the sports world, the figures from whom we could
not look away – even if we tried – and whose stories defined the year. For better
or worse, these were the faces that filled our printed pages, TV
screens and social streams. And for reasons both sad and celebratory, they will
always be worth remembering.
