and i'm too tired to get up

The Isabelle story line is so gross. Racist as hell, to begin with. Isabelle is too smart to ever get involved in this to start with, it doesn’t even make any sense. It’s dragging Raphael down, causing him to face his past and his previous addiction. He deserves better. And now Magnus and Alec’s relationship is suffering because of it too? End it. End it now.

“Good! You’re finally here.”

Got too many Dad-headcanons and not enough Mom-ones so I’m gonna blatantly make some stuff up about random background characters (that could get proven wrong soon in the new movie :’3)

I could use some Help with NAMES tho, names tend to be a big creative block for me idk why

Young Mom Club of Pallet - aka Delia has friends and a social life that isn’t just turning down unwanted suitors lol

Nice Hair Orange Dress:

  • a couple years younger than Delia
  • she and Delia are Good Buds that help each other with their small businesses - -Delia doesn’t run a whole sit down restaurant establishment like in the novels but her cooking is good enough she has pretty good thing selling bento-boxes outta her home and occasionally doing some catering around town. OrngeDress helps out as another pair of hands in the kitchen when Delia needs it (usually for when she’s cooking for events) -OrngeDress owns and runs a textile shop/small-town-boutique/tailoring service, We know Delia makes Ash’s (and her own?) clothes and this is where she gets the fabric, and they swap pattern ideas sometimes, and Delia can sew well enough to help out whenever OrngeDress is the one that’s swamped with orders
  • Mom to lil pigtail-flowershirt-tambourine girl! -OS!Ash can have trouble getting along w/ kids his own age and also be kinda mean to girls, but he also tries to be a bit nicer/patient w/ kids that are younger than him. He also kinda lives for attention and lil kids are easy to impress, so while growing up I can see him getting a kick outta telling her somewhat …embellished stories of stuff he’s done recently and she actually buys it and thinks he’s just the coolest person ever, instead of calling BS like most everyone else around him would whenever he starts talking big, so of course he keeps doing that whenever he’s supposed to be ‘in charge’ whenever their mom’s are busy w/ something together, so he probably doesn’t realize the extent but by the time he’s leaving town she’s like his OG FAN and probably still gets unreasonably excited whenever he happens to get himself on tv

Brown Hair Purple V-Neck:

  • Older than Delia by a handful of years (6?) but still fun enough to be friends w/ Delia and OrngeDress
  • Mom to: Gary! (check that front fringe her hair has?) and mysterious-masked-man from this other HC post
  • Mysterious Masked Man (and Gary’s older sister? maybe she exists in this universe but) is from a previous marriage and also are old enough to not be home much. -This also means that technically the older sibs are not Oaks, and despite being the youngest of his siblings Gary is still the First-Born-son/heir of that line and all the pressures that come w/ that
  • Really helped Delia w/ new-mom-things since she also had a kid very close in age but also the experience w/ doing this stuff before
  • Shorter than Delia even in heels - cementing my HC that as adults Gary ends up shorter than Ash hahaha
  • slight hippie new-agey vibes tbh
  • going w/ her family history of psychics, she makes a lil extra income telling fortunes and selling home-made jewelry that supposedly doubles as various sort of charms (Gary doesn’t believe they do anything At All, but he’s almost always wearing a pendant hmmmm) her “business” is pretty low-key word of mouth sort of thing she just has a rep in town as the person to go to for advice on things, or talk about recent dreams/nightmares they had or w/e, some people treat her almost like a life coach?
  • She wasn’t seen prominently in the crowd giving Gary his send off, because before the day he made it known that he’s an ~adult~ now and didn’t want mom hugs in front of the whole town - she ended up giving him a hard time about that, teasing him a bit by fussing making sure his send off from the house itself was ~regal~ enough for him then, …and that’s why he ended up being the second-to-last person to actually get out to the lab to pick a starter :’3
  • While Gary had a short phase of being a bit of a snot, his relationship w/ his mom really isn’t bad. She’s pretty chill and understands his hang-ups and reasons for wanting to distance himself a bit from her side of the family (at least publicly) and he still cares for her and tries to visit home when he can, it’s alright

My dad wants to know why I won’t tell him about the math I do anymore and really it’s because last time he asked and I explained to him the backbones of an epsilon delta proof and he spent ten minutes telling me how that wasn’t a proof and kept trying to come up with counterexamples and getting offended when I would tell him that no, that works for some delta and some epsilon and I am sick of having to personally argue with him because his engineering self can’t accept that pure, non-applied math also exists.

My Bullet Journal Set Up

So some of you have asked me about my bullet journal (I’m looking at you, @munirastudies (and some anons - hi anons!)). Here it is: my set-up!

I previously did a post on my bullet journal at the very beginning of this studyblr, which can be found here. It’s just changed so much since then that I decided I’d post a new one!

- 1 - I’ve got a dotted Leuchtturm1917 A5 notebook in a really dark blue - which fits because I’m Ravenclaw. I was actually planning on painting the house crest on the front cover, but I never got to do it… but I think I’ll do it soon haha.

- 2 - When you look at my bullet journal you’ll see that I have some bright tags there. They really help me find stuff quicker (but they aren’t sticky enough so they often get loose.. I should change that). You can see my tag list in picture

- 3 - and it’s at the very end of the notebook. For those of you who don’t know this system yet, it’s really simple! You just decide how you want to tag that page, for example “books” as I did in mine, and go to the back of your notebook to write it down there. Then you choose a colour and put a strip of washi tape (or I use post it flags) on that page in the back and also on the page you want to tag so that the colours are in one line and you can see them from the outside (god I’m bad at explaining this but I can’t find the page that explained it to me, sorry!).

- 4 - On the first three pages there’s an index, and I use the first page for years and months, then the second page (which you can see in the picture) I use for anything else.

- 5 - Then there’s my key. I have a colour coding system, but I use some colours twice (which is really bad, I know) because there just weren’t enough colours! I have one colour for each subject, then also for other parts of my life like work, family and friends, uni in general and health (which is anything really: when I eat, doctor’s appointments, when I clean my flat etc). There’s also a key for my expenses which I rarely use anymore, and one for how long it took me to do a task which I also don’t use anymore.

- 6 - In this picture, and also the one before, you can see my yearly overview (which I am still so proud of because I thinks it’s really pretty). I only write down really important stuff in there, and things I’m looking forward to.

- 7 - Now we come to the more important stuff in my bullet journal. In this picture you can see my monthly overview. Here I write down everything that happens that particular month, like when I have to work, exams, family and friends stuff, and birthdays etc. I also have space for goals that I want to achieve that month, and an expenses table. This really helps me because often times I would just go shopping for books and stuff and spend so much money (which you can see hasn’t really improved much {{I spent 70€ on books last month?!}}). Now I can see how much I spend and what I should do better next month (like, I should definitely buy less books {{I actually spent more money on books this month and it’s not even halfway through but shush}}). On the next page there’s an example of a weekly overview. This one looks pretty much the same every week (at least the layout). Here are some more examples:

There’s always space for my weekly goals, then a food table where I write down everything I eat (which should make me more aware of what I eat and change my habits of eating - but it kind of doesn’t), underneath that there’s my habit tracker (and you can see I’m not very good at that either), and then there’s some kind of time tracker…? I don’t know what it’s called, I just thought I needed to know how I spend my time each day, like if there’s a lot of pink I’ve been doing a lot for myself (reading, watching movies, listening to music), if there’s lots of yellow I did a lot with friends and family, then there’s days where I was very creative and a lot of the time is purple - or if there’s lots of green (history) and red (English) I did a lot for uni. I really like this one (and I think I came up with it myself, but if someone has already claimed credit I give it all to you haha).

- 8 - Let’s just ignore the fact that this was one of my most unproductive weeks of all time (like, do you see how often I migrated tasks here?!). Just like my weekly overviews, my daily overviews look pretty much the same every week - at least the basic layout. I get bored of a certain layout about halfway through the week, so I try to come up with a new one every week. See how I got an arrow based layout in the orange overview, and kind of tree/nature based in the green one? What I always include is how much water I drink. I try to drink 12 glasses of water, which in my case is about 2,5 litres. Then there’s the basic to do list thing that bullet journals have. I include my colour code here as well, it just makes it easier for me to see what kind of things I have to do each day. Some more examples:

- 9 - I also have pages in my bullet journal that I use for lists, uni stuff, recs, organisation and personal stuff. In this picture you can see my “books to read” list. On the first example picture of the daily pages you can also see my wish list (which only has “money” on it - figures) and a pro/contra list about the two options I have for my stay abroad. Here are some more examples:

My saving goals page (which isn’t really done yet) and my schedule for this semester(which doesn’t have the hours on it):

and a “movies to watch” list (some spelling mistakes included):

- 10 - This last picture is my current spread. I saw this on tumblr and wanted to try it, but my colour code kind of destroys it. Maybe I’ll try it again some time without my colour code… Here’s another picture of the weekly overview:

Wow. This got a little out of hand! I hope you enjoy this :)

for weeks, genji puts up with watching mccree trying and failing to flirt with hanzo. partially because it’s entertaining, partially because he’s too lazy to help. but then he gets tired of it and pulls mccree aside to talk to him

genji: if you want to charm my brother you have to appeal to his interests

mccree: like what

genji: ok for starters he’s a huge furry

mccree: he’s… he’s a what now

genji: nevermind what a furry is

genji: here come into my room

genji: ok take this set of ears and tail

mccree: pardner -

genji: now put them on

mccree: genji -

genji: then when you see him

genji: do this with your hands like a cat and say ‘nya’

mccree: why… do you own these

genji: hey stay in your fucking lane i’m trying to help you here

mccree:

genji: well what the fuck are you waiting for snap snap brotherfucker get fucking going

i’m so tired of saying I want more of God and being angry i can’t find Him when the truth is I haven’t even been seeking Him.

just gonna be honest with you guys for a bit & i hope that’s okay bc i truly don’t have any Christian friends to talk to about it.

for the past few months i haven’t been going to church. i have every intention to but then i wake up on a sunday morning and decide to just not go. i can’t bring myself to go. and honestly i just don’t want to.

i haven’t wanted God in so long but i WANT to want Him. i want my soul to crave Him more than the air that i breathe. but i just don’t.

i haven’t prayed. i haven’t opened my Bible. i skip every single worship song i come across. i feel stuck and empty and i worry so much it makes me sick.

i know the answer. i do. i know He is the answer. i know He’s there. but i just can’t seek Him. i can’t even find the words to talk to Him.

i’m just so exhausted.
please pray that i would find the will to seek Him. and to keep seeking Him. please pray that i would want to know Him more. please pray that i would learn to trust Him and to let Him in.

please pray that i don’t give up on Him.

I put in some quick color but I actually really enjoyed the sketch of this! Cute besties are the best! Their names are Clover and Poppy (Pop for short). 

Edit: I’m just looking at this again and the sketch really makes me happy?? The characters are kind of off model and certain things are a bit wonky but ahhh…still..not bad

across the fucking board, the majority of white people of all ages voted for trump! so it is really not women of color who need to get up and do this work to change this nation – it is white people! and not just white men! white women too! i see you becky! 53% of white women voted for trump! white allies, go talk to your sisters and your aunts and your mothers! stop expecting women of color (especially black women! bcus 94% of black women voted clinton!!) to get up and fight rn! we fought! it is absolutely your fucking turn.

But why. Why is life so unfair. Why do I have to be the one crying late at night? Why do I always get used? Is it because I am too kind? Or is it because I’m simply just stupid?

Imagine John and Sherlock at a crime scene, and it’s late. 

They’ve been here for quite some time, and John is tired. In fact, everyone is. Even Sherlock, who would like to pretend otherwise. 

And then, three times in a row, Sally Donovan interrupts what Sherlock is saying – and each time, John is getting more and more annoyed.

On the fourth time, John stands upright from where he was leaning and he points his finger at her. “If you call him a freak one more bloody time, we will leave.” He glares at her, then at Anderson and everyone else who is looking. 

“John-” Sherlock starts, but John’s gaze falls on him next and it quiets him up.

“Honestly,” John continues, his eyes still on Sherlock. “He comes here because he enjoys this. Sherlock will never admit it, but he actually likes to help people. Not just the victims in these crimes, but he likes helping you lot as well. He doesn’t have to be here.” He pauses. “You’re not even paying him.”

Sally opens her mouth to say something, but no words come out. 

“If you all cannot let this man work and show him some respect…we will leave.” John repeats. “Sherlock Holmes does not deserve ill treatment. And, I won’t allow it any further.” He nods in conclusion at Sherlock, prompting him to begin speaking again, this time, without interruption. 

Sherlock just looks awestruck for a few silent moments, eyelashes fluttering with his quick blinks. Then, he starts to speak.

Though Sherlock is talking to the NSY team again, he keeps his eyes on John. And, when it’s finally time to go home, they walk together shrouded in the barely risen sunlight. 

John clears his throat. “I’m sorry…about earlier.” He says. “I know Sally is probably going to continue calling you a freak – and Anderson is going to continue to be an awful mess but-”

“What would I do without you, John?” Is all Sherlock says, but it seems more like he’s just saying it to himself and not to John at all.

John doesn’t know what to say back, because he doesn’t know what he’d do without Sherlock either. And, he doesn’t want to ever find out.

i feel like…. tumblr always assumes that minorities can do no wrong……. like……… just because ur a minority doesn’t mean you’re perfect and untouchable and the greatest person to ever live……… like we fuck up and we’re mean and we’re discriminatory and we’re tired and we’re just doing our best too……………. like idk yall gotta recognize that advocating for minorities means recognizing that we’re HUMAN……. not gods…….. idk……

i need to know
that you still
love me quietly
that you still smile
at the sound
of my name
that you whisper
your passion for me
when no one
is there to hear it
  
i need to know
that you don’t just say
i love you too
but that there is
a moment of silence
after you hang up
where you wish
you had told me
one more time
just how much i mean
to you
—  please do not get tired of me
