some advice, from me to you

- DATE. YOUR. WORK. I can’t stress enough how much this can really help. If you date all the worksheets and handouts that you’re given, it’ll make it so much easier to keep everything in order so you can find it when exam time comes around. 

- I like to have just the essentials when I go to classes. So for me, that’s a notebook (two for maths subjects- a summary book and a workbook), a clear plastic pocket, my pencil case, my laptop, my planner, a water bottle and, if I can’t keep a PDF of it on my laptop, my textbook. I use the plastic pocket to store all the loose handouts I receive, and I find it much easier than using a binder or something big and heavy. Once it gets filled up, I just get another one and use double-sided tape to stick the two together. 

- Adding on to the last point- if you can, keep all your textbooks digital and leave the hard copies at home. Your arms and back will thank you, and sometimes online copies have additional study material which can be a bonus. 

- It’s not a source of embarrassment to study. If you want to study, go to the library and study. Find a spare table in the cafeteria and study. Pull out your phone and read through your notes on there. Enhancing yourself is not something to be ashamed of.

- However, ensure that you are spending enough time relaxing and having fun with your friends. Downtime is important. It keeps you focused and happy, and gives you a break from all the stress.

- UTILISE YOUR TEACHERS. They are the ones who know the course inside-out. Most times, speaking to them can really help you.

- Prioritise. I know this seems obvious, but it can be something that’s really hard to do. Remember- you are your biggest priority. 

- Find out what works for you. You don’t have to fit into any category. Study however you want- if that’s in Starbucks, so be it. If that’s in a huge quiet library, so be it. If that’s in your favourite Indian restaurant, so be it. I have a friend whose sister used to sneak into the detention room during lunchtimes just so she could do her work in peace. Whatever works for you. 

- Try to look over your notes at least once every night. It really does help.

- Don’t waste your holidays.

- Don’t waste your nights, either. When you have no homework, CATCH UP. We’re all behind on something. I know. 

- Find a study buddy. Having someone else there to motivate you can be extremely beneficial. 

- I don’t listen to music with lyrics while I study, because the words distract me from my work and disrupt my thought processes. It sounds cliché, but classical music can really calm you down when you feel the rising panic of an overdue assignment. One of my favourite songs to listen to is “Salut d’amour, Op. 12″ by Edward Elgar. 

- TO-DO LISTS REALLY HELP ME. They motivate me and push me to finish them, because ticking off boxes is just so satisfying. 

- Keep a spare pencil case with pens, pencils, an eraser, and a ruler in your locker. 

- Always bring a drink bottle to school, and aim to finish it. It does wonders for your skin and helps with headaches.

- Set goals. It’s so much easier to reach big goals when you set a series of realistic, small ones that lead up towards your ultimate dream. 

That’s all I can think of right now! Please let me know if you enjoyed this post or if it helped you in any way, or if you have any other questions you want to ask (ask box and messages are always open, though I am by no means an expert) (I’ll try my best though). Thanks for reading!!

Ten things that happen when you clap your hands

1. A fairy gets its wings.

2. A request is put out to the suppliers of the wing factory to produce an additional unit of wing materials to help replenish stock levels.

3. Entirely incidentally, a passing bee misinterprets the clapping noise as the sound of a wasp farting. It sniggers. Have you ever heard a bee snigger? Clap and listen carefully. This is all the more remarkable because bees normally have a very mature sense of humour.

4. The gnomish feather shop sends the hob-and-lanthorn out on the moors again to pluck feathers from unsuspecting seabirds. They bill the wing factory for the cost of five hob-hours and a large plucker.

5. An advert is put out for a tendon-stringer second class to act as maternity cover for the wing assembly line, which has become rather stretched with this latest request.

6. You are invoiced for the cost of the wings via the unseelie post. You do not read your unseelie post. The bill goes unpaid.

7. A minor administrator at the wing factory is tasked with investigating the unpaid bill. The administrator realises that two quotes have become stuck together with syrup in the order queue, causing an error. The first quote is about clapping your hands to show that you believe in fairies. The second quote is about angels getting their wings whenever a bell rings. As a result, a number of spurious deliveries have been made to fairies, and a number of bell-related requests have gone unanswered.

8. There is a queue of angry angels at the factory door. They do not have wings. They do have burning swords. Now would be a good time to make a shedload more wings. However, the factory is having major cashflow problems because nobody has been paying their bills.

9. The fairy has buggered off with the original wings and is nowhere to be found.

10. Basically what I am saying is never clap. You may end up being the cause of a major supernatural incident. Just show your appreciation by grinning or something.

What’s this one? This is the third film. Is this the third film?

No, it’s the second film. I honestly don’t even know. Is it?

Don’t even know what film we’re doing. We’re definitely doing one of the Hobbits.

I know this isn’t Sherlock, because it’s a whole different fucking costume.

anonymous asked:

So i'm curious, is there like some unspoken rule for super villains that if one is dating a superhero that no other super villain can fight them? (unassumingly the hero and super villain types have been around for generations now)

Not really but all the other Villains are so scared of Villain Lady and her absurdly dangerous inventions that they haven’t been fighting Heroine pretty much from the moment of their first battle.

Mostly because Heroine didn’t immediately die from VL’s inventions, which is what normally happens to heroes who aren’t effectively immortal so they were like “ohhhh she’s got a crush, ok let’s avoid that one”

Some of the villains were super supportive though.

Gormunauestrixx Devourer Of Minds and Mistress Armageddapocolypse both send VL congratulations cards after she changed her status on SuperBook to “dating Heroine” (The Devourer definitely made the card out of human skin and penned it in blood that moves on its own on the card but VL still happily displays it on the mantle)

And Dr. Abomination gave them a toaster that burns hearts into toast as a gift (it also constantly screams song lyrics to 80s punk music but VL finds it adorable and Heroine just wears earplugs a lot in the kitchen)

Disclaimer: I have never taken a non-science college class. Meaning, I have no idea how to take notes for humanities or social sciences. Not saying this method won’t work for that, just that I can’t guarantee it will. Also, this method is not about achieving pretty notes, only structured practical notes.

What you’ll need:

  • Notebook. I use a notebook. Most people I know use a notebook. Why should YOU use a notebook?
    • You won’t get as many handouts (if any) as in highschool.
    • Professors won’t ask to see hw in your notebook. For all they care, your notes could be a comic about the class. As long as you pass, you do you.
    • You don’t have as many classes in a day so even if you carry around notebooks, your bag won’t be all that heavy.
    • You can divide it into three sections: class notes, seminar notes/work and lab work. All in one for your studying comfort.
    • Professors WILL reference that formula from 3 classes ago and when you have no idea wtf they’re talking about, you can just flip a few pages.
    • Seriously, no one in your class wants to hear you snap loose leaf paper out of your ring binder.
    • And let’s be honest, your notes are going to get jumbled up any other way.
    • If you’re taking a continuation class and you’ll need to revise from these notes, it’s much easier to pull out a notebook than to look through the thousands of notes from all your classes and try to figure out which are the ones you need and what is the correct order.
  • Two pens, three tops. Blue for general notes, black for sections and the other color for subsections or underlining. Go for black for general note taking if you want to (I do it too sometimes) but blue strains your eyes less.

In class:

  • Structuring notes: not every structure works for every subject and professor so you should figure out a method for each one. That said, I usually start out with a basic structure and then tweak it along the way to better suit my needs:
    1. The name of the unit should be your ‘big title’. ‘ORGANELLES’
    2. Every ‘big topic’ (very easy to identify – usually the professor will make it really clear that you’re moving on to a different topic or it’ll be on the slides) inside the unit is assigned a number. ‘3. Mitochondria’
    3. Every ’big aspect’ of that topic is a subtopic. ‘3.4. Structure’.
    4. If there are even more sub subtopics, continue with the numeration system. Otherwise proceed to use bullet points for any enumerations. If there are enumerations inside these enumerations (wow enumerception), change your symbol for each level. Instead of bullet points you can use dashes, squares, spirals, Xs…
    5. The exception for this is when the enumeration corresponds to steps in a process. In that case, I number each step and circle the number.
    6. For each level you descend, indent your text. It’ll be easier to not get lost. Skip this if you’re working with a small notebook and you’re afraid of running out of pages.
    7. Sticky notes are your best friend. Does some random piece of info the professor just decided was important enough to be mentioned not fit into your very methodic structure? No problem, add a sticky note. Cute + calls attention to it, so you won’t forget.

The Making of the Shoebox House, Part 1

I would like to give a quick overview on how I built the Shoebox House for September and Saturday.


First, I gathered the necessary materials. In addition to the shoebox itself, I mostly used cardboard and paper prints to construct and decorate the house, and I used both liquid glue and a glue stick to glue everything into place. To cut the cardboard and paper, I used both scissors and a blade cutter with a ruler to help make the lines straight. With the pencil, I marked where to cut and glue.


First, I measured a piece of cardboard to fit inside the shoebox and glued the wooden floor print to it. Then I added glue to the sides and the back and glued it inside the shoebox. I laid down the shoebox sideways and added a weight on top to keep the floor in place and make sure it stuck properly.


Next, I cut the wallpaper to fit inside the rooms.


The wallpaper was then glued into place.


I cut out several thin, white strips of paper…


…and added those just above the floor as skirting.

With that, the basis of the house was finished. Next I worked on the furniture and the decorations.


For the beds, I took the sponges and cut out pieces of white fabric to wrap around them. I sewed those into place, but left a slit at the bottom so the covering can be changed. I used liquid glue on the edges to keep them from fraying.


The socks that were initially covering the sponges were cut to look more like blankets.


Next, I started cutting out the paper decorations. I didn’t end up using all of them.


The pictures and calendar pieces were cut with a small frame around them. For the bunting, I cut out rhombus shapes from the blue, white and red prints and folded them to get triangles.


Then, I glued the triangles to a piece of string.


The first and last triangles were covered in glue…


…so I could glue them onto the wall above the pictures.


I added the beds, side table and table decorations to see what the room would look like, but I still felt it was too empty at this point.

To be continued.

EduExo: The First Robotic Exoskeleton Kit for STEM Education
A 3D-printable, Arduino-powered kit for students, hobbyists and educators that teaches how to build and program robotic exoskeletons.

About this project

The EduExo

The EduExo is a robotic exoskeleton kit that you assemble and program yourself. It contains the hardware that you need to build an elbow exoskeleton. An accompanying handbook contains a tutorial that will guide you through the different assembly steps. In addition, the handbook provides background information on exoskeleton history, functionality and technology. In the end, you will have a good understanding about exoskeleton technology and its application, together with hands-on experience building and programming your own robotic exoskeleton.

Quick Facts:

What it is:

  • It is an educational robotics kit that will help you to learn about exoskeleton technology.
  • It is a do-it-yourself kit that requires your active participation and willingness to learn and try new things.

For whom it is:

  • For high school and college students who want to learn about robotic exoskeleton technology to prepare themselves for a career in exoskeletons and wearable robotics.
  • For makers and hobbyists who are looking for an interesting and entertaining project in a fascinating field.
  • For teachers and professors who want to set up exoskeleton courses or labs. The EduExo provides additional teaching material and can save a lot of time and money.

Project Background

When thinking of robotic exoskeletons, movies such as Iron Man, Aliens or Elysium may come to your mind. But already today there are many real world exoskeletons that support rehabilitation of stroke patients, enable people with paraplegia to walk again or support workers lifting heavy objects and protecting their backs.

And todays systems are just the beginning of a very promising and quickly growing field that is in need of many skilled talents within the next years.

Due to the novelty of the field, getting involved and learning about robotic exoskeletons is difficult as learning material or even exoskeleton course or classes are not widely available yet. This is made even more difficult as learning about exoskeletons is not possible by theory alone, but also requires practical hands on experience (you have to see and feel it to understand it). Unfortunately, the necessary exoskeleton hardware is expensive and there are no dedicated and affordable learning devices available. This is what we intend to change with the EduExo.

The EduExo recently won the Wearable Robotics Association Innovation Competition in April 2017. This prize was awarded to us by a jury of CEOs and CTOs of leading exoskeleton companies, highlighting their demand for exoskeleton talents. Click on the banner below to learn more.

Skirt 08
  • skirt from the collection of Kira Plastinina,
  • 1 color,
  • mine mesh (only Lod0 and Lod1),
  • HQ texture,
  • custom thumbnail.

The skirt goes not with all tops. With most of the top to the bottom, it will not go, because the texture line to the sea in a place where usually is the bottom or other elements associated with the mesh. I hope you will forgive me for it, because it is my only mesh of such a plan. This is the second skirt, made on the basis of the mesh.

If there are problems with this material, please write to me. I hope you will enjoy. 

Thank you for using!

New Release Review: Score: A Film Music Documentary

Jaws. Star Wars. Rocky. Indiana Jones. Psycho. James Bond. Batman. The Omen. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It’s impossible to discuss these landmarks of cinema - among countless others - without mentioning their scores, which continue to resonate to this day. The soundtrack can be seen as the heart of a film, as it possesses the ability to subconsciously elevate or manipulate viewers’ emotions. Score: A Film Music Documentary examines the power that music has in movies.

Virtually every modern name in film scoring provides insight into their process, including: Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight), Danny Elfman (Batman), Trent Reznor (The Social Network), Junkie XL (Mad Max: Fury Road), Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings), Steve Jablonsky (Transformers), Henry Jackman (Captain America: Civil War), Marco Beltrami (Scream), Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead), and Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy), to name a few. Various experts - from filmmaker James Cameron to historians to studio musicians - are also interviewed.

any comic artists out there?

I’ve just learned the process to get a comic series pitch accepted to Image or Darkhorse includes having an art team already on board. They also require five pages of art and the cover in addition to the written materials I’d have to provide. I’m down for the front-end development work if you are! I’m in a pretty good position to pitch because I write for Marvel now, and I’m published. Do any of my artist followers (or followers of followers) have an interest in collaborating with me on an original comic series for Image or Darkhorse? if yes, hmu babes
