and i just spelled recommended wrong

My opinion of popular Korean language learning resources and some tips

Talk to me in Korean: Some of their grammar explanations are very helpful, as well as their Iyagi series. I’d really recommend them for learning elementary~intermediate grammar. However, they use a lot of English and their content often isn’t serious enough (stock full of jokes that are not necessarily related to Korean at all, the hosts constantly teasing each other) and it can be cringe worthy and annoying. Would recommend but not as a prime resource. 

Koreanclass101: They have a lot of interesting features where you can actually track your lessons, record your pronunciation, use specific vocab lists for each lesson etc. But again, most of their lessons are filled with idle talking in English and come off as a bit cheesy. 

Livemocha: Livemocha is like a free version of Rosetta Stone with more community interaction. After each lesson, you must write from a prompt and record a paragraph which is given to you. It’s really cool that native speakers listen to and judge your pronunciation and correct your entries for free. However, the content is rather limited and doesn’t go to an advanced level (nor is it very practical content). Still, it tracks your progress and covers all aspects (listening-writing-reading-speaking) in every lesson. I’d still recommend if not just to get your pronunciation corrected personally.

Rosetta Stone: I’m not a believer in their products. Not for serious learners who want to reach a high level. No explanations for anything. Assumes adults learn like babies, which they don’t.

Quizlet: This is a website only for vocabulary, but I highly recommend it because you actually have to be able to recall the vocab instead of simply looking at it. Especially like the ‘learn’ tool. It may be a bit tedious to constantly input new terms and doesn’t necessarily help in long-term memory if you don’t put the vocab to use in another way. If anything, it will be tremendous help in practicing Korean typing.

Memrise: This is like Quizlet but with a more ‘scientific’ approach to help with long-term memory of vocabulary words. It keeps track of which words you need to review so you’re not forced to also shift through the words you already know. Their process can be a bit long and tedious for some people though. If you’re impatient, quizlet might be better. But as a whole it is a more structured way to learn vocab and I’d recommend it.

Lang-8: This is one of my favorites because it’s pretty unknown to the western world despite how useful it is. It’s not really a learning website; just a tool where you can write anything in your target languages and native speakers will correct it for you for free. I’ve even had people correct parts of my school assignments on this website. The community there is nice and helpful and there are lots of Koreans willing to correct your entries quickly. Recommended for people who are self-motivated in writing entries. Not particularly helpful for low-level learners. ALSO a lot of native learners writing english posts include the Koreans translation so you can study off of that.

TIPS:

1. There is no reason you should pay to learn Korean on the internet. If millions of free resources are not enough motivation for you and you’re too lazy to study without strict online lessons telling you how to do everything, you might not be motivated enough to learn a language. 

2. NEVER use google translate. Naver english dictionary is the best, closely followed by daum. 

3. If your motivation for learning Korean is to understand TV shows or music without subtitles, you’re probably underestimating how difficult it is to learn a foreign language. Waiting a week for some subtitles to come out on your favorite drama is exponentially easier than dedicating thousands of tedious hours to your life to learning a language. Language learning should not be fun and it should not be easy. But there’s nothing wrong with having a hobby and exercising your brain. 

4. Do not blindly trust Korean language learning tumblr blogs. Especially the ones with very light content that use lots of pretty graphics and have hardly any non-reblogged content. I have seen SO MANY spelling errors, incorrect vocabulary, and tons of other things that are just straight-up wrong and made by people who don’t know what they’re doing. 

5. Nothing will stick if you don’t make an effort to use it yourself.

6. Use penpal sites to interact with Koreans in Korea. Chat with people on kakao talk. A lot of nice people will help you learn.

7. Whenever you watch anything with subtitles, take notes on how things were translated. I would recommend you look for Korean subs every time you want to watch a movie in your native language. Also, most TED talks have Korean subs!! Watch some!!

8. There are apps you can download that stream Korean radio. Turn them on while you’re doing something else or when you go to sleep at night. Even if you’re a beginner and can’t understand what is being said, it helps to acclimate yourself to the flow and pronunciation of the language. 

cosmic witchcraft 101: candles and constellations

When I’m doing cosmic spellwork, I like to try and reflect the energy of the constellations I’m working with by arranging my candles into their shapes. This can definitely work with any candles you have on hand, but I love to match the color of the candle to the color of each specific star in the constellation!

I’ve done a few spells with Orion, so I’ll use it for an example. I chose to work with the brightest seven stars in the constellation. You can just look at the sky or pictures to figure out what colors you’ll need, but I like to match what I see with each star’s individual stellar classification.

The Harvard spectral classification system divides stars into seven groups using single letters of the alphabet based on their spectral characteristics. If you want to learn more about spectral classification, you can read more here on Wikipedia, but all you really need to know is the star’s letter and that letter’s corresponding color.

  • O (blue)
  • B (blue-white*)
  • A (white)
  • F (yellow-white*)
  • G (yellow)
  • K (orange)
  • M (red)

*For the blue-white/yellow-white stars, I usually just pick the color that looks closest to what I see in the sky.

Since most constellations have lots of stars, it’s really easy to spend an egregious amount of money on traditional candles. A more affordable option is birthday candles! I got almost 50 for less than $10. I was able to find purple ones, so I added a candle for the Orion nebula here.

You’ll need something to stand them up in; I used salt (which I would not recommend - it took a ton of salt and a long time for me to actually get them to stand them up) but something like sand or soil would probably work. Or you could just bake a magickal cake to go along with your spell!

If you have enough candles on hand, you can represent bigger and brighter stars with bigger candles. Here I used two large taper candles to represent Betelgeuse and Rigel.

Most importantly, remember there’s never a wrong way to connect with your stellar objects of choice. If the stars you want to work with are yellow but blue corresponds with your intent, choose whichever color suits your fancy! Maybe represent each star in the constellation with different colors to match your different intents. Ultimately, this is about your connection with the cosmos  ✨☄

i once again find myself looking for witchcraft blogs to follow, especially those who post their own spells, recipes, whatever. i understand that some people’s witch blogs are also their personal blogs, much like mine, and that’s perfectly fine! don’t get me wrong. but tumblr is my safe space to get away from political and social drama - once again, i’m not saying these things aren’t important, but i would really like to find some blogs that strictly post witchcraft and magickal things, even if it is just aesthetics or you’re a brand new witch just starting out. any recommendations? :)

Tips for In Class Essays

Sorry for the long hiatus in useful posts, but I’ve finally come up with something! As with most of my posts, this is more targeted at high school students, so it might lack information that older students need. 

Planning Ahead

  • Find out the question. Obviously, if you can find out the question from your teacher directly, that’s massively helpful. Unfortunately this doesn’t actually happen that often. Try to figure out the question based on themes that you’ve covered in the class. If there is one major theme or idea that is present in a majority of the lessons you’ve done, it’s pretty likely that will be an essay question. 
  • Decide which viewpoint you will argue. It’s smart to plan this out ahead of time because you don’t want to be struggling with an internal debate when you’re actually writing a test. You have to have enough evidence to support your thesis, so make sure you choose the viewpoint that has enough support in your notes, not the one that you personally agree with. 
  • Write an outline. This is pretty self explanatory. Write out a thesis and plan out what evidence from your notes that you can use. 
  • Use versatile points. Even if you make an educated guess, you might not be 100% right on what the topic of the essay will be. Try to use evidence that can be used for more than one topic, instead of things that are super specific to one topic. 
  • If you’re not sure which side is better, outline them both. Sometimes there is lots of evidence in your notes to argue both sides, at least at first glance. Make a t-chart or other organizer to weigh the evidence on both sides, or outline them both. As you try to outline one of them, you will be which one has stronger evidence to use. 
  • Remember the evidence! Don’t choose super specific details from your notes if you aren’t going to be able to remember it when the essay is actually happening. If you do have a really good piece of evidence that is highly specific, make sure you can remember the details. Don’t try to remember quotations unless it is specifically asked of you. 
  • If you are allowed a quote sheet or outline, do it!!! There is no excuse to pass up a rare opportunity like that. Do it! 

Writing the Essay 

  • Start with a super quick outline. Jotting down the points that you planned is a great idea just to start the essay. Using 5 minutes or less to do this will help you stay on track and remember your evidence without wasting time. 
  • Do a basic introduction. Don’t waste your time making an elaborate introduction. Start with a few general statements about the topic, outline what your arguments are, state your thesis, and move on. An introduction is rarely a make or break factor in the quality of your essay in this type of situation. 
  • Use tons of details and evidence. An in class essay is usually focused on how much of the things from the notes you can actually apply. Be very detailed and talk about specific events, not just general ideas. (This is why planning ahead is helpful – you can plan which details you want to use!) 
  • Don’t get too caught up in spelling and grammar. A majority of the time, in class essays are more focused on organization, ideas, and your ability to explain yourself, not whether or not you can spell. Unless your teacher says otherwise, don’t get stressed over a word spelled wrong. 
  • Try to write legibly. You don’t want to lose marks on your essay because it was hard to read and the teacher didn’t understand your points. I recommend using a ballpoint pen because gel pens and pencil can smudge. Fine liners often make it hard to write quickly, so I don’t love those either. 
  • Focus on the time. Know how much time you have and pay attention to it throughout the test. Don’t get caught up in one body paragraph and use 90% of your time on that. Figure out how much time you have for each part and stick to it. If you fall behind, wrap up quickly and move on. 
  • If you have to leave anything off, leave off the conclusion. If you are running out of time, ignore the conclusion. It’s the least important part of the essay in this situation and its not worth skipping evidence in a body paragraph to get it done. 

Let me know if you have anything else to add or if you want me to write about anything else!

Compilation: BLEACH Fic Recs!

((Ichigo/Rukia, Byakuya/Hisana, Toshiro/Karin))

Note #1: A lot of these might be in-progress or abandoned altogether, so read at your own risk!

Note #2: I tend to like Bleach AU fics where none of the characters are shinigami. This is the case for for both the IchiRuki and HitsuKarin pairings, but not the ByaHisa pairing.

Note #3: Contains summaries for easier selection. Also, the ones marked with (❀❀❀) are a little “more” recommended no matter the completion status.

***P.S. If you like a story, check out the author. A lot of these authors have written other good Bleach fics that aren’t this list too! Also, my go-to author for HItsuKarin fics is Adobo-chan ( i-am-adobo-chan on tumblr) and for ByaHisa fics, it is Crimson-Bttrfly. Other people seem to really like tosca1390’s IchiRuki fics.

ETA: I just noticed I spelled “recommendations” wrong on the banner. Whoops!

WITCHY FAQ

* Firstly I would just like to say that you should do your OWN research before coming to social networking sites to ask about the basics of Witchcraft.  I am happy to answer questions, but do get a little sick of answer basic questions when there is a whole Internet out there. There are so many websites and BOOKS on the subject, and they aren’t very hard to get a hold of! Here’s a post I made about my favourite books; http://the-aries-witch.tumblr.com/post/137661341214/the-aries-witch-a-list-of-my-favourite-witchy 

Anwyays, here we go; A list of questions i frequently get

Q - Can anyone be a Witch?

A - Yes! Regardless of Religion, skin colour, identity, blood line, etc. Magick is inside us all, you can chose to work with it if you wish! All it takes is a little practise.

Q - When can I start calling myself a witch?

A - There isn’t a specific time frame, but I’m not going to pretend that it doesn’t annoy me when a person goes and buys a crystal or something with a pentacle on it and then proclaims themselves a witch. Personally, i think you will know when you are a witch, you will feel your magick awaken and you will know. Owning tools, crystals, books, whatever, doesn’t make you a witch. The feeling inside is what makes you a  witch, you will know it when you feel it.

Q - What advice do you have for a beginner witch or someone new to the craft?

A - Don’t be afraid to try things out! Don’t worry about doing things ‘by the book’ or ‘perfectly’ there is no such thing as doing a spell right or wrong. Do it how you feel you should

Q - How do I get a familiar?

A- You don’t just acquire a familiar.  Your familiar will come when the time is right, and the same as you cannot go pick up any animal (your pet or other) and claim it as your familiar, you cannot force you familiar to appear. Deep meditation and visualisation are some ways you can try to find your familiar, but often, trying too hard will only fail. Just wait and see what happens!

Q - What items would you recommend for basic witchcraft?

A - Although you don’t NEED these items, they’re a great way to start. I would recommend you start with an Athame, Wand, Pentacle, Chalice, A heat proof bowl, Candles, Basic multi-use herbs like lavender, sage, Frankincense and sandalwood, and also clear quartz and amethyst. 

Q - Does your astrological sign have any connection with your magick?

A - If you believe it does, or if you want to incorporate your sign into your magick - Yes

Q- Why do my spells not work sometimes?

A - Spells don’t always work because sometimes they don’t need too! The universe knows what you need and sometime it isn’t what you ask for. 

Q - Which deity should I worship?

A - You do not need to worship one specific deity, But doing research is a great way to find a deity you feel drawn to or most connected with.

Q - What is this circle you speak of and how do I cast one?

A - The sacred circle is a space for you to perform your magick in! I won’t go into the lengthy details on casting it, but basically you envision a bright white sphere of protective energy around yourself and this is the time in which you call in the 4 quarters, the god and goddess and other deities to aid you in your work. ( see my post on a full circle casting ritual here > http://the-aries-witch.tumblr.com/post/137616797936/the-aries-witch-the-aries-witch-a-simple

Q - Should I be in a Coven or a solitary witch

A - Whatever you feel most comfortable doing! You do not have to be in a coven to be a witch, and you do not have to be completely solitary either - you can always invite a witchy friend over and do little rituals and spells together!

Q - Do I need to charge crystals? How can i do so?

A - You can charge crystals by burying them in salt or clean earth or by immersing them in fresh water from a lake or the ocean. The easiest and most common method is leaving them out in the moonlight to absorb the energies, same can be done with the sunlight but as harsh sunlight will fade a lot of crystals, the early morning rays are best

Q - Which crystals/herb/incense should I get for ____

A - this answer would be much better answered if you did your own research so that you could find a whole list of herbs and their attributes and work out what will work best for you.



* I will probably add more to this over time.

Grounding

Grounding is something that is harder to explain than being simply a metaphysical need to tether one’s mind and/or soul to their physical plane of existence. That is one of two components to what this essential function actually is. The two components of grounding are Spiritual/Mental and Physical. Grounding itself is basically aligning oneself with the energetic core of the terrestrial planet we live on. It brings your body’s physical energy and by default your Essence or Spirit Energy into harmony with the planet’s physical energy and allows you to resonate together and create an equilibrium.

Your Spirit, Essence, or Soul energy is the same energy that runs the electrical pulses within your body, so when you need to balance your physical body, you are also balancing your Soul’s energy as well. That does not tie your Soul’s energy exclusively to your body’s physical stamina or energy, as they can be mutually exclusive. Remember, the Soul is much, much larger than the physical body we are here with. Your body could not withstand all of the energy one Soul contains at any one time naturally. If your body is run down or has trouble, your Soul’s energy is not to blame. Your Soul is not smaller or weaker than another’s, nor do you have less access to it. The two are mutually exclusive. You can ground them together or separately, and you can use different methods for them. Physically grounding the body has to be done with skin contact to the Earth’s surface or a conductive surface that resonates on the same energetic wavelength as Earth’s surface. The Soul/Mind can be grounded anywhere using a variety of methods or using the Earth’s surface as well. The two types of grounding are discussed a bit more below:

The first component I want to discuss is the Physical necessity of grounding, because this is a basic need that all who dwell upon this planet have in common. Plants, animals, and humans all share the need to ground, and this is something that has no root in metaphysics or magic, this is purely biological. No imagery techniques are needed for this, all that is required is skin to ground contact with the Earth. Plants and animals all naturally partake of this gift our Planet offers up to us freely.

The body naturally runs on a series of electrical pulses, and these pulses power every function and organ in our bodies. This is true for all organisms, so in essence, this is literally the spark of life. We are charged beings that run on electricity, not unlike the objects we use in our day to day lives. Think about this - in the wild rarely is it heard of that our fellow creatures fall victim to the same rash of ills that we do. How often do we switch on our programs and hear of clans of animals bogged down in rashes of chronic pains and disease? Of heart attacks and joint inflammation or arthritis? Quite simply, they are generally healthy! Their bodies are in better balance, and they are more resilient to the ailments that run rampant in our population.

The same is true in groups that spend more of their time barefoot, or sleep on the ground more. People that spend more time out with skin to Earth contact in more quantity have less inclination to chronic pain and generally better physical functionality. This is because of the electrical current that runs naturally on the Earth’s surface. It grounds the body’s charges and restores balance in the body physically. Our modern advancements such as shoes and false floors, and insulated living have created a massive disconnect that have allowed us to fall out of balance. This can lead to these inflammatory conditions, and you do not have to take my word for this alone. The research has begun already, and there is a book that covers physical grounding more in depth. It is called Earthing by Clinton Ober, Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D. and Martin Zucker. It is very worth it, and I highly recommend it.

As to the Spiritual/Mental properties of grounding, this is where the visualization can be more of an optional thing, and where methods can get more varied. There is no doubt that this is a necessary and very useful tool for anyone, regardless of if you are casting spells, communing with the Spirits, walking between worlds, or just someone who has trouble keeping your head in this space of reality, but there is some variance on exactly when and how this is to be done. There is no right or wrong method when it comes to grounding, there is just what feels right, when feels right, and what works for you as an individual.

The idea behind grounding for mental reasons is to help maintain balance between your life here and your life in another headspace. Your reasons for being in another headspace are not what is important. It can be for stress relief, for spiritual workings, for fun, but what matters is how you get back, and how you make it safe. Sometimes when we have an ability to do such a thing, we don’t necessarily always have the degree of control over it we would like. Sometimes we float off at inconvenient times, or have trouble getting back even when it was intentional, and grounding helps to control or alleviate that.

Method is not important, as I stated before, so do not get so caught up in if you are doing this right or wrong. All that matters is that it works and it makes you feel comfortable and back in your body and back on solid ground - this planet’s solid ground, to be precise. Some people use rooting techniques from various parts of their bodies, rooting deep into the Earth to reconnect. Some people simply breathe into their space, and weigh themselves back down, firmly planting back until they feel themselves ‘fill’ back in completely. Some people use an object, and press or rub it, using the physical stimulation to bring themselves back. Some will use a combination of methods, and may even use vocal toning and some physical rotations to bring themselves back as well. The method is not what really matters, so long as it works.

Please note that nothing here is intended to treat, cure, or replace any conventional treatments or preventative measures for any conditions, be it physical or mental. The methods given are always best advised to be used in conjunction with modern medicine and/or psychology where applicable, never in place of or against it. There is no shame in getting help where it is needed.

anonymous asked:

Hey! I'm an atheist. I practiced witchcraft for about a year before dropping the craft; I realize now that I mostly practiced it as an ex-Christian because I craved spirituality. However, I still feel drawn to it, but no longer really believe in the effects as witchcraft does not employ the scientific method. Is there any way I can reconcile the two sides in my mind without sacrificing logic? (I'm not trying to "convert" you or challenge your beliefs, I'm just asking for myself)

Hey yes, so I can completely see how you view witchcraft as defying science or the scientific method, but I would recommend trying a spell two.

I know that some other witches are also against blindly believing in magic & do what they do not because they think or hope it’ll work but because it does.

I would say find spells that actually work, even write your own spell.

Hell even treat it like an experiment. Record everything you do & anything that goes wrong. Try it once or twice.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I want to be serious with writing and maybe publish a book in the next 4 years. However, I don’t have a lot of money therefore I don’t think I can afford an editor. Do you think it’s necessary to get one?

If you publish professionally, I imagine you’ll be provided with an editor anyhow (although I may be wrong). I would honestly recommend, unless you or a close, generous friend is very knowledgeable about grammar and willing to comb through your entire work, you likely want to hire an editor. One of the biggest turn-offs to me is a grammatical, spelling, or punctuation error in a book. It’ll likely reflect fairly poorly on you if there’s a handful of errors, especially if you’re self-publishing. People may write you off as someone whose work isn’t of very high quality over something simple like that.

But, of course, that’s just my opinion on the matter!

My Advice To New Witches
  1. Never let anyone tell you what’s right or wrong about magic. Do your thing. If it feels right, it probably is right for you. With the singular exception that you should always pay attention to safety features.
  2. Gonna need an exotic ingredient for that spell? You really don’t. True, some herbs/materials are really awesome, but there are substitutes. I recommend researching them near the beginning of your journey.
  3. Give it time. You aren’t going to be able to see spirits after a day of practicing. Don’t feel stressed if something doesn’t come easy for you. Just keep going.
  4. You will find out that you are excellent at some aspects of magic, and terrible at others. This is normal; it does not make you less of a witch to be bad at protection spells but great at curses.
  5. Up at the top of everyone’s motives for being a witch are three things usually: power, love, success. My advice on these things is don’t strive to heavily towards power because it comes easier if you don’t force it. Don’t try to magic up love because it’s tricky and kinda creepy at times and you’ll end up wishing you hadn’t one way or another 90% of the time. Success can’t be rushed; instead of trying a big money spell or something, try for smaller successes that pave the way to larger victories. A good foundation is crucial.
  6. Never let yourself fall into the trap of trusting everything a mentor says. There are good teachers and bad teachers, but even the best can be wrong. Trust, but verify. That’s the key to good learning.
  7. Gonna talk to the spirits? Have an offering on hand, but keep a “sword” or banishing talisman near it just in case. Hey, it might be paranoid, but a little prevention is better than scrambling for a cure later.
  8. Let yourself relax. Magic is funny; the more you try to force it, the more it forces you. Just concentrate on your goal, focus on how you want it, perform your spell, and know it will work. The more calm and collected you are (unless you’re drawing on emotions for power), the better.
  9. You will most likely change your mind. Many times. The paradigm you start with may not be the one you finish with, and that’s okay. Again, what feels right is what’s right for you.
  10. Down here on earth, nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes, including witches. So you started with Silver Ravenwolf? So what? What’s important is that you keep learning. If you’re moving forward, you shouldn’t be ashamed of your past.

How to Interact with Actors/Idols Appropriately on Social Media

Fellow 2.5D fans.  You may have seen this post floating around, about foreign fans replying to actors on social media in inappropriate ways.  I agree with pretty much everything that post has to say, but I’m not here to reiterate what’s been said before.

As inappropriate as they are, those tweets are sent by fans, right?  Fans who like the actors and want to support them, right?  That’s fine!  It’s okay to respond to them on Twitter!  But there are certain boundaries you don’t want to step over or you (or worse, foreign fans as a whole) will be seen in a negative light, canceling out the support you’re trying to send.

So today let’s talk about reply etiquette.

Okay. So I’ve been seeing some people who’ve read Killing Stalking and have been responding with “I wish I was Yoonbum” or “I want Sangwoo to be my boyfriend”. And you people fucking disgust me.
This shit is not beautiful. Stop romanticizing this shit. I appreciate this comic for existing, it opens eyes to a lot of people, including me, but some people are so blinded by the obsessive love that you don’t see how disgusting it is. Both Yoonbum and Sangwoo are two fucked up characters now using each other to balance off their wrong tendencies. Now, in this situation, I would understand these two because I think this comic is aiming towards how two screwed up people could work together, but the habits that this pair is still wrong nonetheless! You people are just as sightless as Bum is for thinking like that (*cough* Stockholm syndrome). KS is a really cool story, and shows us the emotions of what these two wrong people could have whem mingled together, but you DO NOT want to be like these people. I doubt you people reading KS are much like this, and if put in the situation, this would be very emotionally scarring. I recommend everyone read it, but read it openly. You all are under the Stockholm syndrome spell, and that, my friends, is nothing beautiful.
