the outsiders characters staring in ‘Weird Shit my Older Siblings Did’

Ponyboy: Disappearing for about 2 hours at the age of 3, and when being asked where they went, responded with “I was following the faeries”

Soda: Caught by my mom sitting in the car blasting ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ with his friends

Darry: literally became a roofer??? ((lmaooo))

Two-bit: set off firecrackers in the house while babysitting my younger brother and I- nearly KILLING everyone 

Steve: bought an old van and installed racecar driver seats in it so they could roll the van down hills while they were in it and supposedly be safer??

Johnny: made friends with someone simply bc that person had a pet duck

I have been asked many a time by people I know in real life and on here if I am serious when I say baseball bats are my weapon of choice.
Fuck yes they are. I would, in full confidence bring a baseball bat to a gun fight. Moving targets are hard to hit, I was a sprinter in high school, and moving targets that are bashing your skull in are even harder to hit. Sure I have stellar aim with a gun, but I fully support gun control laws, and many of them would not let a bipolar, anxious, panic-prone individual like me own a gun. But a baseball bat? No fucking problem.
Hell, you can pick up a metal one that makes a nice ping when you smack it. You can buy those wooden ones too and jack them up. Go to town on it with a box cutter so the mother fucker you’re whacking walks away with huge ass sprinters. Drive nails through that thing for special occasions. Wrap that fucker in barbed wire. Heck, I’ve had a buddy sand his down and soak it in gasoline for a week and then go into a fight and light it on fire. Risky to you, yes, but damn near guaranteed to get anyone threatening you running? FUCK yes.
I will never understand why society abandoned clubs as a weapon for hand to hand combat. You can run me through with a sword and sure, I’ll probably die eventually. But a baseball bat, something infinitely cheaper, can be deadly with a single blow.
Now I’m not encouraging violence by any means. But, I will say this. Don’t punch a nazi. Don’t punch a pedophile. Don’t punch a rapist. Take a pimped up baseball bat straight to their cranium.

How to Write Children

The other day I started writing something I’ve been thinking about for a long time.  The first chapter starts with the characters at age 7 and, for the sake of accuracy, I pulled out my notebook from the Child Development course I took over the summer.  I know that not everyone has access to a course like that or even notes from one, so I thought I could share some tips I picked up on writing children.

Age: Infancy (birth to ~2)

Infants don’t really do much besides eat and sleep.  The only way they know how to communicate is through crying; however, they do start making noises that sound like talking as they get older, which can be noted as cooing or babbling.  First words are usually short, brief words that are nouns or actions.  Language develops quickly at 50 words by 8-18 months, and 300 by 18-22 months.

Fresh babies can only see about 7-9 inches away from their face and without much peripheral vision.  Basically, things need to be right in front of them.  Infants respond to sound much easier, though, responding more to the mother’s voice, and sounds and rhythms of speech rather than nonsensical noises.  Babies are sensitive to smell, taste, and pain, being able to determine good and pleasant from the bad.

They spend about 2/3 of their time sleeping (16 hours a day).

Around 2-3 months, the infant starts being able to hold up their head, and around 3-4 months they can start grabbing things voluntarily.  

Age: Early Childhood (2-6)

At this stage, children are developing their gross motor skills, which is the large muscles.  They are learning to balance, throw, catch, push, pull, etc.  At this point, males and females are generally equal in terms of development and abilities.  Children can begin to develop fine motor skills at this stage, but not unless they have mastered gross motor skills.

Children at this stage usually develop patterns of erratic and unpredictable eating habits.  They can develop strong or strange preferences, and often are influenced by parental food preferences.

These ages need about 10-11 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period which is usually accomplished with 9-10 hours at night and a 1-2 hour nap during the day.

Children at this stage begin “symbolic” or pretend play.  They have one-dimensional thinking, and see themselves as the center of all situations, and this is completely normal development.  These children do not understand the laws of causality.  An example of this is that highways make cars go fast, or when I wake up the sun comes out (rather than people make highways fast or the sun will always come out whether you wake up or not).

Preschoolers learn an average of 9 words per day.  They also apply the concept of overregulation, which is applying grammar to words that are an exception to the rule (a child learn that you put -s on plurals and makes the word “mouses”).

Preschoolers start to identify and respond differently to their friends than other children.  They identify friends not by qualities, but rather the toys and activities they share.

Age: Middle Childhood (7-12)

This is the stage when children usually begin losing teeth.  They start going in for regular vision, hearing, and dental checks.  This is also the stage when hormonal differences begin to occur, not until puberty however.  Children begin to develop “executive functions” of thinking, such as goal setting, information processing, and self-regulation.

During middle childhood, children are increasing their speed, strength, agility, and balance.  They are developing hand-eye coordination, faster reaction time, and flexibility.  Their fine motor skills have increased to tie shoes, fasten buttons, zip zippers, etc.

Children at this stage begin to understand the law of conservation, which is the idea that properties of an object remain the same when superficial characteristics are rearranged or changed.  They can also begin to uses class inclusion, or understand that one category or class can include subcategories (**Note: This is Piaget’s theory and has since been proven that the development in this paragraph happens earlier than he accounted).

Children begin to develop a moral conscious that is usually dependent on the world around them.  Basically, children learn that they must conform to an authority or set of rules, and misbehavior results in automatic retribution.  Children at this age may also begin to lie as a way out of retribution, but do not fully grasp the concept of deception (develops around 9-10), so lies will be short, one-word answers rather than elaborate tales.

By age 6, children will have learned 7000-13000 words.  By ages 7-9, they will understand that words have different meanings and enjoy jokes.  

Children will start to develop self esteem around this age, and is usually higher in children with close relationships with their parents, and social acceptance by their peers.  Peers become powerful during middle childhood, and there becomes a lot of pressure to conform due to acceptance or rejection.

Age: Adolescence (13-17)

Puberty may have already happened before this age, but it usually marks the beginning of adolescence.  In males, early maturation is not usually seen any one way or another; however, late maturation in males can make them feel dominated an insecure.  This is reversed in females.  Early maturation can make them feel awkward and conspicuous.

Teenagers are at the peak of physical health, strength, and mental capacity (in general terms), yet this is a very hazardous age.  Rates of death by injury between ages 15-19 are about 6 times greater than the rate between ages 10-14 because of an egocentric feeling of invincibility.

Teenagers bodies have sexually matured, but they have limited executive functions and tend to be impulsive.  They may end up reacting to peer pressure.  Sexually-active adolescents have a higher risk for Sexually Transmitted Infections (estimated 2.5 million teenagers).

Many teenagers experience sleep deprivation (<6 hours), which can lead to poor performance.  Adolescents experience what is called phase delay.  This concept is the teenagers body shifting its sleeping schedule, making them fall asleep later and waking up later.  It is natural for teenagers to have difficulty falling asleep before 11pm.

At this stage, teenagers have a great capacity for abstract thinking and use of symbols.  They are categorized by hypothetical thinking (what might be rather than what is), Utopian thinking (the future’s possibilities), and symbolic thinking (how a symbol can represent something greater).

Teenagers still experience a sense of egocentrism.  Adolescents are overly concerned about what others think of them, and feel under scrutiny or on stage (”imaginary audience”).  They also believe that their own thoughts and beliefs are special and unique, which can lead to them feeling alone and isolated.

The differences between genders (I’m sorry I don’t have any notes on trans youth we didn’t cover that) is now much more obvious due to cultural experiences.  Girls tend to be better in verbal skills such as reading, and expressive language, whereas boys tend to be better at visual-spatial abilities because of sports.  In a study of 7 million teenagers, they found no difference between boys and girls in mathematics.

*** Please note that this is a very simplified and edited version of my notes.  There are entire sections of the science behind development, and also disorders and diseases.  If you want a deeper explanation on anything, or posts about the two subjects I skipped over, please feel free to ask! ***

anonymous asked:

Hi! Would you consider writing a Mileven fic/headcanon but out of Lucas' or Will's or any other outsider's pov? I love those and i haven't seen any of them, or if you know any link me to them? Thank you anyway i love your writing x :)

Thanks, anon! I’m not sure if this really works for what you had in mind, but I hope you’ll enjoy! I’ll likely expand to include one for each Dustin, Will, and Max in the coming days so keep your eyes peeled (if you feel so inclined!) 💜

Lucas and Mike had gotten together every Saturday morning, barring illness or family vacation, since kindergarten. They’d sprawl out in the Sinclair living room with a shared plate of pancakes (the only time Lucas was allowed to eat in the living room) and watch hours of cartoons before riding their bikes (in the summer) or going sledding (in the winter).

So, when Mike called him Friday night and said he wouldn’t be coming over the next morning, Lucas asked why.

“It’s El,” Mike replied, “I invited her to come watch cartoons with us but she’s too nervous to meet your parents so we’re gonna watch them here.”

“Oh, okay,” Lucas said. He understood that meeting a friend’s parents for the first time was scary and El hadn’t met many nice adults in her life. And he understood that Mike really liked El, in a way that was more than stupid and mushy. He really cared about her and so did Lucas. He could survive one Saturday without Mike if it meant giving El a shot at a childhood activity she never got to experience; one that he himself loved dearly. “Have fun,” Lucas continued. He heard Mike make an exasperated noise on the other side of the phone.

“We means you too,” Mike said firmly, and Lucas could practically hear his friend’s eyes rolling.

“Only if you promise not to be making goo-goo eyes at El the whole time,” Lucas teased.

“I don’t do that!” Mike defended himself and it was Lucas’s turn to make an exasperated noise. A beat of silence followed and then Mike asked, “So you’re coming right? Cause El wants you to be there. And so do I.”

“Yeah,” Lucas smiled, “I’ll bring over some candy too. El’s favourites.”

Someone please please give me a number and I’ll answer these. You can send me more than one!:)

GF Halloween Headcanons

-Instead of carving jack o’ lanterns, Dipper and Mabel put jack o’ melons on their porch, much to their parents’ confusion. It becomes a tradition for the two for every Halloween, and they set four watermelons on their porch, one for Ford, Stan, Wendy and Soos

-Knowing how much effort Stan always put into Summerween and Halloween, Soos goes all out when he creates the Haunted Shack in the gift shop. He uses the copies of the journals Stan left behind for inspiration. There’s always at least six kids who run out screaming in terror, but Stan’s record is twelve and Soos is determined to break it

-Stan and Ford make it to Transylvania one Halloween and Ford is not surprised when they encounter a tribe of vampires. He is also not surprised when he discovers Stan forgot to bring the garlic

(“WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU FORGOT THE GARLIC?”

“I thought you were kidding!”)

-Candy and Grenda manage to drag Pacifica out for trick-or-treating, which her parents considered a commoner’s tradition and Northwests did not beg for anything, much less candy. The blonde (dressed unsurprisingly as a princess) is stiff and self-conscious at the beginning of the night but by the end she’s hyped on sugar and wondering what other simple childhood activities her parents have forced her to miss out on

-Gideon decides to spend his first Halloween as a reformed person staying at home and handing out candy. He goes all out, with full-size chocolate bars, cans of soda and several snack-sized treats. The looks of pure joy he gets when the trick-or-treaters see how much candy they get slowly eases his guilt for once causing those expressions to be filled with terror

-Now that the magical creatures of Gravity Falls are exposed to the populace, they join in the Halloween festivities and at midnight there’s a giant bash held at the Mystery Shack where everyone attends. There’s a massive mess to clean up after but Soos doesn’t mind because it’s always an awesome time

-Dipper and Mabel dress up as the Multibear for one Halloween. It’s a joint costume and it’s complicated and they can hardly see out of it but they win the school's costume contest by a landslide and rake in all the candy (their parents have no idea where they come up with this stuff and Multibear is very honoured when they hear of it)

-Ford loves Halloween just as much as Stan, as it was their favourite holiday as kids. He also loves to scare people as much as Stan, and it becomes a slight problem when it’s just the two of them on a boat. Someone inevitably is startled enough by a fright to accidentally fall overboard

-Dipper and Mabel eat every piece of loser candy, just to be safe

-Wendy dresses up as Dipper and Dipper dresses up as a lumberjack in honour of Wendy. It happens on the same Halloween without them consulting each other, and both are surprised and amused by this coincidence after they exchange pictures (Dipper may or may not have been beet red for a good hour)

-On Devil’s Night the high school is coated with toilet paper and silly string. Blubs and Durland have a good idea of who is responsible, but don’t bother reporting their suspicions. They go to Wendy’s house where her friends are gathered and are busted since Robbie forgot to take a few silly string cans out of his pocket. The two cops order them to clean up their mess and they have zero choice since Wendy’s father is there. They grumble and complain but obey because if they don’t they’ll miss out on Halloween and no one wants that so they’re out until five in the morning. Robbie doesn’t live his mistake down for a long time

-Dipper, Mabel, Stan and Ford have melon-carving contests through video chat and Mabel is the undefeated champion

-Stan and Ford will send the twins boxes of foreign candy from whatever country they happen to be in near Halloween

-Mabel has a scrapbook dedicated entirely to Summerween/Halloween, where she includes pictures Wendy, Soos, Stan, Ford and other Gravity Falls residents send her of their costumes

-Fiddleford transforms his mansion into a haunted house, but he does it the week before Halloween so he doesn’t take any business or thunder away from the Haunted Shack. Pacifica goes every year to assist, since she knows the layout of the mansion better than anyone (and Fiddleford listens patiently to her laments of what he’s doing to her former home)

-Despite the impressiveness of Fiddleford’s haunted mansion, the Mystery Shack can’t be beat, and is the place to be on Halloween. Soos did not spend all that time around Stan without learning a thing or two about scaring people, and Melody is pretty handy and crafty. Soos’ favourite is when she rigged a mannequin to ooze blood and guts

-Dipper and Mabel get into candy-collecting contests with Candy, Grenda and Pacifica. The three girls are continuously baffled as to how the twins always managed to beat them by a significant amount despite being one man short, and Pacifica eventually concedes that yes, Dipper and Mabel are the Kings of Halloween

The Spiritual Growth of Children Chapter 3 - Part 1 Beginning with Nothing..

Jim thought he was a great spiritual leader. He took his kids to Sunday school every week and planned to send them to a Christian school when he could afford it. But then one Sunday as he was getting ready to go to church, he found three of his young children at the bottom of the stairs, crying.

“What’s wrong?” he asked them.

“We don’t want to go to church, Daddy,” his daughter, Janae, said.

“It’s boring,” Jake said, wiping his tears with a fist.

“We’ve heard the Noah story so many times we don’t want to go anymore,” the eldest, Josh, added.

Jim looked at his children and realized he had no idea what they were being taught in church. He had no idea how the Bible was being presented.

“Not that I knew so much,” Jim says. “I was raised in a church where I was told that I couldn’t understand calculus without algebra, and therefore I could not understand scripture without years of theological training. I was told to leave the Bible reading and interpretation to those with training. But as I looked at my kids that day, I realized that I needed to assume the responsibility of teaching them biblical truth.”

He didn’t know where to begin. He didn’t know what to do. At first he thought he should know everything about God and scripture before he began. But he quickly knew that wouldn’t happen.

“So I just dived right in. Whatever I learned, that’s what I taught the kids. I’d start with a problem or what I learned in Bible study and pass that concept on to them. For understanding the scriptures, I found resources to help me like the Life Application Bible. When I wanted to dig deeper, I bought a Nave’s Topical Bible and Strong’s Concordance.”

Jim also knew the typical reading from a family devotional wouldn’t inspire him or the kids. “I wanted it to be fun,” Jim said. “So I thought of having Family Nights.” These would be times of fun for the family with a spiritual message blended in with the fun. “I could define a biblical principle and impress it upon my children as Deuteronomy says.” He quickly discovered that Family Nights, although formal, set up the informal.

So whether the family is huddling in the bug-infested crawl space to discuss persecution, the children are climbing on Dad’s back to experience how we cannot get to God without Him coming to help us, or they’re using a dummy electrical situation to evoke worry, the family is having a great time while lessons are being taught.

For many, like Jim, the notion of becoming intentional about spiritual training at home creates a knot of tension in the stomach due to past failure or intimidation. Let’s start with a clean sheet of paper. Erase all your preconceived notions about training your children in the Christian faith. For a moment forget all the guilt-driven, unpleasant attempts you’ve made in the past or any ideas you may have about this being boring and ineffective.

There are a few principles that comprise the core of our “Spiritual Training 101″ course. Remembering four simple phrases, you can keep the process simple and your priorities clear: Relationship is your priority. The Bible is your handbook. Life is your classroom. Your methods should target your child.

Obesity is not a feminist issue because the problem with obesity isn’t that ‘men don’t want to fuck you if you’re fat’ the problem is that people are dying from health issues caused by obesity. Men, women, and children are having increased health risks because of this but all you’re worried about is how society should change their views on your appearance and your sex appeal. PEOPLE ARE DYING. THIS IS NOT ABOUT MEN OR VISUAL APPEAL. THIS IS ABOUT YOUR HEALTH. GET HEALTHY.
