tips for college I wish I already knew before starting, since I see most of my followers are young and still about to enroll in

  • if you want to die and can’t enjoy a single class after 6 months in, you are probably on the wrong major. Consider changing
  • professors aren’t blessed beings full of endless knowledge and actually get a lot of shit wrong sometimes. Do not try to argue it will only make them hold a grudge, just stay true to what you know is right (given you have sources and proof that what you know is indeed right)
  • college parties usually suck. You can go to them if you’d like but if you are not into parties don’t even bother. And no you are not a freak for not going to parties. Most of the people there do hate parties too but just feel obliged to go by a made up rule that makes no sense. 
  • If you think people in high school are bad oh boy you can’t wait to see what college is like. They have this holier than thou attitude because they think the world is obliged to tend to them since they are now ADULTS ™ with HIGHER DEGREES ™. Just ignore them
  • don’t take shit from anyone. And I mean it. No one can talk shit to you. Don’t just accept defeat
  • Actually plan out your assignments and do them on a good pace a little bit each day. Leaving things for the last minute will make you want to hang yourself
  • Don’t do a major because your parents want you to. You’ll be frustrated for the rest of your life. If they can’t respect your decisions, you don’t need them. Get a job, get your shit together. It’s not as hard as it seems but still better than setting yourself for failure
  • If you kinda like your classes but don’t feel that sparkle of light every single day, don’t worry. It’s just the routine catching up and you end up getting numb to it. But once you get to practice what you were there for you’ll see it’s all worth it and all that tingly feelings will come back. If in doubt that it is right, talk to someone about your favourite class subject. You’ll probably feel that light if you are doing the right thing
  • School isn’t more important than your own sanity. If you are getting sick from college, seek help. Have a day off
  • You don’t need a perfect 10/10 score to get a good job. Most people I know that have really great jobs nowdays had just enough grade to not fail. Do your best, if in struggle try to get at least enough to pass, but don’t worry yourself too much over getting perfect straight As
  • Take every opportunity you get to work or additional courses and lectures in your area once offered. It not only builds up resume but allows you to know which area you like best
  • In college no one cares. If the second you sit down you feel like “nope this is a mistake” just walk back home. No one will question anything you can just walk out of the door
  • Find out how many days you can skip class for each subject. Make a list of it. Use and plan out those days for when you feel bad or have other things to attend to. Keeping track of it is the most effective way to not fail due to absence

Prompt : "this isn't for me"!

“This isn’t for me!”

(Dad!Cullen floof AHOY)



His cubs had been up to something all morning, and Cullen was starting to get very suspicious.

From the moment they had awoken, the twins could be heard scuttling through the house, muttering incomprehensible phrases to one another. Every time Cullen attempted to see what they were up to, his children would gasp and hide their hands - like they were keeping something from him.

“What are you two hiding?” he asked them, raising a brow.

For a moment, they were silent, before his daughter Celeste replied, “Nothing!”

“Nothing?” Cullen repeated, crossing his arms. “Nothing wouldn’t happen to be another toad you found in the garden, right?” He recalled the way their mother had reacted when she had discovered the muddy little creature lounging on the twins’ bed one afternoon.

“No,” his son Adam assured him. “No toads. But you can’t see yet, Daddy. So go.” he uttered with a well-meaning “shoo” motion.

Again Cullen’s brow rose in suspicion, but he decided to leave well enough alone. He just hoped that whatever they were doing didn’t result in a spare animal being brought into the house.

A while later, Cullen was lounging on the sofa in the main room, reading silently with the family’s mabari snoring at his feet. He nearly shot up in alarm when a pair of little hands covered his eyes from behind - ensuring he couldn’t see anything.

“Daddy, come with us!” he heard Adam say. And he smiled to himself.

“Why are you covering my eyes?” he asked, and he could make out Celeste attempting to stifle a giggle.

“It’s a surprise, Daddy!” she answered. “I’m gonna move my hands but you gotta keep your eyes closed, okay?”

Agreeing to his children’s terms, Cullen closed his eyes and stood from the sofa, and a moment later he felt one of the twins’ hands tugging on his own, enticing him to follow. With a chuckle, he allowed them to lead him somewhere within the house.

They stopped abruptly, and Celeste excitedly permitted him to look, saying, “Okay, open your eyes!”

Cullen did so, and at first was confused to see nothing in front of him. Upon glancing down, he noticed Adam standing in front of him, holding a makeshift something in his palms.

“Oh, is that your new weapon of choice, Adam?” he asked, and Adam just laughed as he shook his head - golden curls bouncing wildly.

“No, Daddy! This isn’t for me! It’s for you!” he told him, the brightest smile on his face. “We made you a sword!”

“Happy birthday, Daddy!” Celeste then shouted, attacking her father’s leg with a great big hug. 

Cullen could feel his heart swelling in his chest, looking down at the little concoction his children managed to create. With a laugh, he knelt down, gathering them both in his arms and pressing kisses to their heads.

“What an amazing gift,” he told them both, smiling at them with everything he possessed. “But, children, it isn’t my birthday. In fact, it’s not my birthday for another few months.”

“Oh.” both of the twins muttered simultaneously, sending a look to one another. “Well, then it’s a not-birthday sword!” Celeste piped up, her grin nearly splitting her cheeks.

Cullen laughed in agreement, then reached forward to take the “sword” from his son. “Finely crafted in every sense of the word.” he said as he examined it, and the proud looks his children gave him in reply he knew for certain he’d remember for the rest of his life.

If I had a booth at an anime convention, what would you buy?

So I’m getting a booth at Anime Central 2017 (I am confirmed to be there!) and I want to not only be always available for people to meet and hang out with, but I also want to be able sell merchandise from Seduce Me and my other games!

That being said: What kind of stuff would people love to see?

Things I’ve come up with:

  • Acrylic Charms
  • Shirts
  • Posters
  • Buttons
  • Game Codes
  • SM Soundtrack (Physical CD)
  • My Otome CDs (Physical CD)

However, am I missing anything? What would you get from my booth?

Most people who have thought that it would be a good idea to use coercive eugenics for a thing did not actually accomplish their goals, and did manage to do a lot of harm in the process.

Therefore, if you think it would be a good idea to use coercive eugenics for things, I would like to see some evidence that you really thought about it and considered the likely results and not just the results you’d somehow get if everything magically goes according to plan and also nobody figures out what you’re doing. “Nobody figures out what’s going on” is really not an option if you post about it on the internet.

I would really prefer not to have to tell the anti-transhumanism people that they’re right about everything.

Hi guys, so a while ago I made this post about some lifestyle tips that I learned during my first year of uni and since I am 4 days away from starting my second year I thought I might as well share with you the second part of my post.

So let’s get to it…

  1. Organization systems. Having one saved my life during my first year. Being able to see deadlines and to-do’s made it easier to stop procrastinating and actually focus on my classes. There are so many organization systems out there honestly. What has worked best for me is the bullet journal but you can find what suits you best. 
  2. When to skip class and when not to. Let’s be honest, there are classes that you should never never skip but there are also classes that won’t be such a problem if you skip them once or twice. Just notice that every teacher works differently and there will be classes that are not as important. If you do skip a class make sure you use your time in something important like studying or relaxing, also don’t make it a frequent thing because then you will be in trouble. 
  3. Participating in class saves lives. Pretty much self explanatory tip. I am super shy and I never participated in class back in high school but I actually started doing it at uni because it is so helpful. First of all, teachers will actually remember and notice you in their classes, you get to make a good impression because, even if your participation is not as smart, they will appreciate the effort. Second of all, it could help you learn actually! Some people, like me, tend to remember things when they say them out loud and talk about it. 
  4. Taking notes. Similar to the organization systems thing. There is a million ways to take notes but once you find the one that suits you best it is an amazing tool to learn. 
  5. Teachers are friends (not food). I remember being SO SCARED of my teachers during my first weeks of uni but I quickly noticed that they are actually great people and, if you leave a good impression, they are more than willing to help you whenever you need it. Mail them if you need extra help and I am pretty sure most of them will be up fot ir and will value your interest on their class.
  6. Grades can be unfair (and therefore questioned). Like I said, teachers are people and people can make mistakes. Just because they are uni-level teachers doesn’t mean they are always right. If you feel like you put on a lot of effort on an essay/homework/project and you were graded uunfairly then don’t fear talking to your teachers and asking the reasons for your grade. They might reconsider your grade or at least they will give you a guide so you can do better on future works. Even if your grade is not changed your teachers will remember what you did and have it as a future reference and, once again, interest is SO VALUED by uni teachers. Doing this actually helped me move from a 10/15 to a solid 15/15 during my second semester…turns out my teacher just wanted me to write longer essays lol. 
  7. Everyone learns differently. I have seen a lot of posts saying how study groups are the best way to learn but it is not that way for me, I just can’t stand studying in group and I am pretty sure I am not the only one who feels this way. Don’t be scared if you feel like you are learning enough with a method, just go search for new methods that suit you!
  8. Planning is amazing. I don’t mean only like having an organization system, I mean planning everything. It is what has worked for me, before I do any project, essay or just any homework I HAVE to plan and structure everything I am going to write. Also, I have to plan personal deadlines for long term projects so I don’t procrastine and actually get things done.
  9. Also post its are great. If you are all about writing down everything you have to do and then forget looking at your planner: post its are here to save you. Whenever I am extremely busy I write my to-do’s on a post it and put it on a place I KNOW I will see, like the back of my phone. It never fails. 
  10. Have fun learnign! Ok yes, studying is your responsibility and you probably have to grades to keep up but you should be happy while doing so! Sign into classes you know you will enjoy and, if you have bad luck and end up hating the class/teacher, don’t worry, prove that you can be excellent at it and be happy

You guys have got to stop, you are making veganism look terrible. If you won't do it for yourself do it for the animals. Put them ahead of your ego.

I was just talking with FL on snap then. She has ZERO interest in stopping this war. She just keeps spreading lies so I have to keep defending myself.

She comes on tumblr just to slander me. 

I come here to help.

Look how many posts Ive done in the last year compared to FL.

FL is here to look good. Not really to do good.

Her banner is posing for a selfie in a bikini in her bedroom infront of the mirror.

Mine is giving rambutans to kids in a Cambodian orphanage.

I think the average person can see what a fake person FL really has become.

But then again you squeeze an orange and you don’t get apple juice…

Some say money and fame change people for the worst.

Some say money and fame just brings out what was already there to begin with.

(1/2)this is random but like your admiration for Gerard makes me feel less bad for my admiration for him because everyone I know has either moved on from openly fangirling and/or like him least out of the whole band and like he's so damn pretty and has been through so much shit and is genuinely kind and artistic not to mention I Fucking Relate to some of his struggles and I'm always appreciatively shit posting and it annoys everyone so yeah anyway seeing you, someone in tumblr bandom who every

(2/2) one knows and who isn’t a 14 yr old emo, openly shouting into the tumblr void about your appreciation for Gerard makes me feel less bad so yeah idk I just wanted to tell you that

okay first of all how can anyone like him least thats just beyond me, what is wrong with these people???? lmao 

anyway thanks for saying that and im glad that i make you feel better honestly, everyone i follow shouts about their appreciation for Gerard so i get what you’re saying, i love that too. maybe you SHOULD annoy everyone bc i mean, if they dont like it they can just fuck off and then the people who appreciate it will find you instead and appreciate you for it. lol but yeah it took certain events in my fandom life to figure out who to stay away from and who appreciates Gerard the way i do without getting all up in his personal business and talking over him all the time bc that annoys me just as much as people talking shit about him. so anyway welcome to the Gerard appreciation club :)))) haha

Help Me Decide What to Get Signed

I’ve been debating what to get signed at Torcon. I really want to get everyone to sign the same item and now I’ve decided that I have two options.

I realize this post may be boring for a lot of you but if you’re interested and/or you have experience at SPN cons (especially with autos), I would definitely appreciate your feedback.

See below the break for the two options…

why do you guys look so old? no hate just wondering . love your vids btw

We look like 36 year olds because guess what? We’re 36 year olds! And if you think we look older than 36, consider that we’re leaner than 99% of 36 year olds and the leaner you get the less fat and fluid there is pushing out your skin to disguise wrinkles and make your skin look fuller. We also don’t use products or surgery to alter our appearance either which many people do. Social media is extremely ageist… we also once looked like the bouncy 20 year olds you’re used to seeing but guess what? everyone ages eventually!

QUIZ RESULTS: Dark Olive Green #556B2F

Your dominant hues are green and yellow. There’s no doubt about the fact that you think with your head, but you don’t want to be seen as boring and want people to know about your adventurous streak now and again.

Your saturation level is medium - You’re not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it’s required of you. You probably don’t think the world can change for you and don’t want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is slightly darker than most people’s. You try to see things for what they are and face situations honestly. You’d rather get to the point than look for what’s good.
