a-week-and-a-day-old-now

I know that I usually have a giveaway on Thursday, but I can’t do that today. I don’t typically like bringing up personal matters here on this blog, so this is hopefully the one exception I will make. My grandpa has been in the hospital for a little over a week now and I’d like to go visit him today. He’s alright now, he’s stable. He just had a heart episode, but was back to acting like his old goofy self once they helped give him some medication. They had to perform a heart catheterization two days ago, now they’re waiting for a bit to release him (I think). I wasn’t able to go visit him before because college got in the way, but my schedule is free enough today for me to go.

Thank you for understanding.

Text from dad:
Isak! That’s enough! Ive been trying to reach you for days. I know that you’re mad at me, and you probably think I’m a coward for leaving mom, but I couldn’t help her. One day I hope you can understand that. I’m trying the best I can.

*Isak swipe through old texts, his dad is trying to get Isak over for dinner several times over the past weeks*

Text from Isak: fine. I’ll come to the Christmas concert. I’m bringing my new boyfriend. His name is Even. That’s a boy name.
Text from Dad: I don’t understand if you’re kidding now?
If you have a boyfriend that’s very nice Isak, I’d love to meet him, but you know how mom is, she gets stressed out easily.

Sana: halla
Isak: halla
S: forgot to do the assignment?
I: yeah
S: did you see that link I sent you?
I: no, what was that?
S: it was just a link to an article
I: okay, what was it about?
S: just some science research that’s been done on the evolution and homosexuality. I was just thinking about the discussion we had a while ago. And it’s not often I’m wrong, but it turns out I was wrong in that discussion. Because homosexuality has played a… have had a natural function in the evolution and they have a lot of new and interesting research on it so… I was wrong

I: what about Islam? Anything new and interesting from there or is it the same old?
S: Islam says the same as always. That all humans in this world is equally worth and that no humans is going to be talked about behind their backs, violated, judged or ridiculed. So if you hear anyone use religion to argument for their hate, don’t listen to them. Because hate does’t come from religion, it comes from fear.

Teacher: we can start the lesson by turning in the tasks….

Rework of my Tianshan Day 4 Comic [Part 1]

This has been sitting in my drafts for a good few weeks now… ^^; I’m still not satisfied with how the next panel looks like– So instead of trying to fix it up like a normal person, I’ve been working on other stuff~ *whistles*

I have completed some of the other panels, but the story can’t continue until the 4th panel is done~ Hey, I just work in mysterious ways! 😂

Ah, I’m just gonna post it as it is now, and I’ll upload the rest at a later date! ;)

Bullet Journal Quotes

Since my planner starts July 2016 and ends July 2017 I’ve been using it as a bullet journal for the summer until I start school again next week. I’ve been writing quotes, tips and odd bits of information in the space for each day instead of homework. Now it’s the end of summer I have collected a lot of quotes that I hope you guys might like. They may seem random but they do correspond with what i did or was feeling on the day.

anonymous asked:

What would you recommend getting done in the first week of school (and the week before school starts sicee those days teachers don't really tell you what will be done and everything is just slack?

The preparation part was my favourite during my school years so here we go 

The Week Before School Starts

  1. wash your backpack if possible (don’t tumble dry!) 
  2. you can also wash your pencil case if needed
  3. if you haven’t bought your supplies yet, now’s the time!
  4. also try out your pens and pencils to see if they still work (if not, replace them if needed)
  5. sharpen your pencils
  6. clean your desk
  7. put all your old worksheets and things from last year into files 
  8. label your folders (your name, class name, year) and textbooks, calculator and everything that might get switched up in class 
  9. if you’ve messed up your sleeping schedule, use the last week to try and fix it so you don’t have to run on four hours of sleep on the first day of school
  10. have a look at the curriculum so you know what’s coming up in each subject
  11. if you’re going full-on hermione, have a sneaky look at the first chapter of your textbooks or revise briefly what you did before the holidays

The First Week of School 

  1. make copies of your schedule (one for the fridge, one for your desk, one for your bullet journal/calendar or for wherever you might need one) and memorise it, especially the rooms and break times
  2. if your school has one, get access to the online learning management system if you haven’t already
  3. get your books from the school library if you don’t need to buy them
  4. if you’re at a new school, learn where the rooms are as quickly as possible, especially the bathrooms, the gym, the cafeteria and the principal’s office (and your classrooms of course) – if you don’t know your way around, ask someone to show you everything!
  5. if you get homework, do it right away. don’t let procrastination sneak up on you in your first week already
  6. if you need special supplies for some classes and your teacher told you to buy them, buy them now (especially books because shipping may take a while)
  7. copy important dates into your calendar/bullet journal (deadlines, exams, holidays, school events, trips etc)
  8. if you’re in a new school/class, try to learn the names of your classmates (maybe not all of them, but your immediate neighbours and possible group work partners) or maybe even exchange numbers/open a group chat (might come in handy if one of you is absent or needs help with homework)
  9. if you’re returning to your old school and class, arrange to meet with your friends to catch up if you haven’t seen them during the holidays! it’s usually easier during the first two weeks because you won’t have as much homework
  10. you’ll likely be introduced to new topics in different subjects - pay attention!! those basics are really important and the next weeks’ worth of content will be based on them, and it’ll make things easier for you when you learn more advanced stuff later or when you study for exams. 

You don’t have to do all of that, those are just a few suggestions based on personal experience! I hope you’ll have a great start in school :) 

Dirty Admissions

Summary: You use a jealous Pietro’s ignorance to your own advantage to get him to admit your relationship
Warnings: swearing, almost smut
A/N: I was reading through old requests at 1:00 because I couldn’t sleep and this happened #sorrynotsorry

“You’ve been fucking each other for how long now?”

“Four months, three weeks, and five days,” you answered Natasha’s question, taking another sip of your drink and running your hand across your face in an attempt to conceal your embarrassment.

“And neither of you are fucking anyone else?”

“No,” you said, pressing your lips together and regretting your existence. Natasha had caught you sneaking from his room early Thursday morning, your hair a mess and your shorts in your hand. “Neither I nor Piet are fucking anyone else, Nattie.”

“Yet no one knows and neither of you will admit you’re together?”

You told me you loved me, and that I was yours to hold. Everyday with you was a whirlwind. You let me tell you my secrets and see the darkest parts of me. Every second with you was a whirlwind. You filled my self destructive brain with flowers and even made sure to water them when they started to wilt. My stomach turned to a whirlwind of more than just butterflies at the sound of your name. You consumed my darks thoughts and turned them into glimmering new ones, for that I’ll always be great full. But one day I didn’t see your wonder filled puppy dog eyes anymore, but rather my fathers ice cold blue ones, you yelled and glared. You scared me into a whirlwind of my old dark mindset, the one I referred to as home. I thought I deserved better now because you were starting to be like him, but these last few weeks have been a whirlwind with out you and I’m just like I’m anyways so I guess you are still what i need. I’ll just live through a whirlwind of pain while waiting for the happy version of you to reappear, don’t worry, I’ve been doing this my whole life. Let me know when I’m allowed to be happy again.

Patater Week - Day 1

Feb. 6- Get Together – (Coraline-inspired AU, magical realism, 6.4K)
Soundtrack: [Exploration] + [Dreaming]

There’s a low, paint-chipped door in the corner of Alexei Mashkov’s living room in Providence.

His agent tells him that the door used to connect to the apartment next to his, a long time ago, when the structure had been one. The door leads to nowhere now, only a wall of bricks. Alexei has even seen the wall of bricks in person, when he requested the landlord open the door for fun. He’s always been curious, after all, and the old, rusted key that the agent picks out from the cabinets only added to that curiosity.

“You’ll get yourself into trouble one day, Lyosha,” his grandmother used to tell him. Alexei had been young, perhaps seven or eight, when she warned him. “Don’t ask so many questions, and try to be happy, or the spirits will see, and take you.” She had said, “Don’t go through strange doors, and don’t follow voices, especially if they sing to you.”

“What’s so bad about singing?” Alexei had demanded, in a petulant way only a seven-year-old can manage. “I sing.”

“Yes, love, but they sing to confuse you,” his grandmother had responded. “They sing of a life better than the one you have, so you want to come to them. You see? They want to trick you and steal you away.”

Of course, Alexei had thought her warning had been metaphorical, if not slightly cryptic. She’d been old then, and easily confused. If you take out the spirits part, the rest sound more or less logical. He figured that she doesn’t want him talking to strangers and end up kidnapped, so Alexei had merely nodded and promised her. No going in strange doors, no following the singing voice, not that there’d been any in his life. Until now.

The bricks are nothing special: the seams filled with cement, the corners dusty with cobwebs. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, but there’s a draft that only Alexei can feel because when he mentions it to the agent, she only blinks in confusion.

“Why not lock it?” Alexei asks, when the agent pockets the old key and closes the old, wooden door.

“Why should I?” the agent says, smiling. “The wall is bricked up. Not like there’s anything that can come out. Now, let’s go to the kitchen. The structure itself is a little old, almost 150 years, but it’s been recently remodeled. It’s got a beautiful granite counter top—”

Alexei loves the house. But doesn’t know why he feels uneasy about the door. When he gets the keys to the house, he finds the rusted key again and locks the door.

[TianShan Week]

Day 3: Hunger

…a need for dumplings noodles!

Wow, look at all that dialogues– It’s scattered everywhere lol ^_^; I didn’t have time to draw so many panels so I hope it’s isn’t too confusing to read!

I wasn’t supposed to spend so much time on this but I really wanted to do a good job at it– ”Look ma, cleaner lineart!” XP I have added two extra panels. I was going to skip the “dumplings” part but I thought it was pretty funny so it had to be in there! :P

I haven’t really started Day 4 at all, I’ve only just finished this now! X_x Oh man, I don’t think I can keep up at all lol– I’m feeling very tired, staying up doing these so I’m considering skipping some~ There’s not enough hours in a day… TT_TT

Cecilos Week, Day 2: Future/Past

i have a lot of feelings about the concept of cecil and carlos getting through all of night vale’s weirdness and constant threats despite all the odds, and becoming an old married couple together. carlos spending his time still tinkering away with sciencey gadgets but with more naps inbetween, and cecil maybe getting a lil grumpier and sends in opinionated e-mails to the radio station about how things were done Back In His Day, but overall still has a lot of fondness for the town; most of his focus is now on his creative hobbies, namely his watercolours and writing slash fic, so not much has changed!

the two of them still like to hang out at the bowling alley at the weekends, even if they’re not all that good at playing anymore, and they are still found regularly holding hands and flirting with each other like two awkward teenagers on a first date after all these years together ❤︎

i ran out of time/energy and couldnt colour this, but i promise that is NOT an average coloured polo shirt cecil is wearing ;D he still has his Trademark Fashion no matter how old he gets. as a wee bonus:
