and im starting a new thing

anonymous asked:

how do you cope with moving to student housing and going back to uni from summer and changes in schedule like that???

im not sure honestly. my home life (at my mums) isnt the best and so usually im desperate to return to uni to get away from home. i live alone during the academic year which definitely makes it easier if not preferable. i bring a lot of my routine staples with me, e.g. my special towels, my special cup, special bowl etc (but obv u bring all ur fave/needed belongings because youre moving so, bit redundant)

i make new routine cards (see example here, link) as soon as i can + print them out and stick them up around my home to make things a little easier + run a little smoother. 

but other than that im honestly not sure. its always really really hard and i dont really cope with anything in my life well and ive been burnt out since starting uni + havent recovered fully since (probably wont until after i graduate) so

good luck though, i hope things work out well for you

if anyone else has any advice then please feel free to share

some pictures of the new Redgrove!

im having a lot of fun with hacking, and i only really started to landscape today so its nowhere near finished, weeps

all ive wanted to do for a couple days now is hide away from life, so i feel like thats probably why it turned out to have such narrow paths and secret hiding spots. im hoping this town will give me a place to hide away instead of being a reminder of the things that have happened in the last couple of days.

AAaaaaaAAAAAA MONEY SHOT IS SO GOOD!!!! I just want them to Go on a DATE and KISS and BE HAPPY!!!!! ok so Im kind of new to this fic (only the last two updates) and (NOT TO SOUND PUSHY BC FIC WRITING IS HARD) but is there any kind of schedule for updates? Like update every friday, etc? Keep up the good work!!!!!! <3

Thank 😭🙏🏼 I also went them to kiss and go on a date and be happy 😂 they both deserve it. I’m really enjoying writing their back and forth so far. And I don’t really have an update schedule, I have a few things I want to get written before I start working on the new chapter, but I’ll always post updates and let everyone know when I have a rough idea🤓

new genre concept: soft apocalypse

the world as we know it has ended and mother nature starts taking back what’s hers. there are no zombies or cannibals or murderous bandits. the most valued members of the community are those who know how to garden and farm, sew and weave, treat wounds, work wood or build with bricks, cook from scratch. 

people bond together to begin rebuilding instead of killing each other. everyone teaches each other whatever they do know and works together to figure out the stuff none of them know. books become incredibly valued resources because they’re often the only way to learn critical information. if someone is elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to work at the same level as most of the community, they’re taken care of by the others, not told any sort of “survival of the fittest” bs.

as the generations ware on, communities begin expanding into small cities. some of the settlements even find ways to repurpose solar or wind power on a small scale and have electricity in some of their buildings. storytellers wander the countryside telling tales of the old world in return for some hot stew or a place to rest for the night, and the mythos of the new world start to incorporate elements of the past. the only thing that remains constant is that humans survive, and they do it by working together.

humans more like ew-mans am i right

instead of wheel of the year im using wheel of witchblr discourse that makes the rounds every few months to tell time and figure out when to plant and harvest my crops.

my new sabbat list includes:

  • someone doesnt understand the 3fold law is only a wiccan thing and starts curse-shaming non-wiccans for cursing
  • the “blessed be” debacle happens again, creepy invasiveness be damned
  • people conflating wicca with witchcraft / gatekeeping other people’s crafts
  • cultural appropriation in droves so we have to bring out the afterschool special ^tm posts (special addition, appropriating person says “i was that race, but like,,in a past life”)
  • someone wants to shame people who like aesthetics, calls them “fluffy bunnies”
  • TEH BURNING TYMES WERE REAL AYE TELL YEA AND I SAW GOODY PROCTOR WITH TEH DEVIL
  • “witchcraft is only for cis womyn uwu✿ ” bullshit, sometimes even brought back by terfs that dont even practice witchcraft ??¿?
  • someone has a problem with other people using emoji spells, despite no one forcing this rando to use emoji spells. 
  • “love spells are basically rape” discourse happens about the same as a blue moon

this shit happens like clockwork man im telling ya

Harry’s Journal

April 28

Took this picture of Draco the other morning. His bedhead is somehow both absolutely adorable and incredibly sexy, so how could I resist? Clearly he wasn’t too happy with me for taking it, but I made it up to him with kisses and a big breakfast with all his favorites. Let’s just hope he doesn’t find this journal, I don’t think he would be too happy about that.

if you’re an adult on tumblr it’s so important for you to use common sense when it comes to interacting with kids. don’t follow kids if they’re uncomfortable with it. you are now schrödinger’s predator. that’s a hard thing to realize especially if you’re new to adulthood.

im not saying you should never speak to a child ever, because that’s… ridiculous. but you’re an adult now and you need to keep that in mind. when you’re speaking to a child, you are speaking to a child. if a kid starts a conversation with you, it’s ok to be friendly and talk to them, but keep it appropriate.

you MUST model appropriate behavior so that kids can spot INappropriate behavior easily and keep themselves safe.

justinmeldaljohnsen: A nice pic of these two folks that I’m glad to have gone through some great journeys with. A few words about Taylor, while I’m here: He’s one of the most naturally gifted musicians and producers I’ve ever encountered. His vision for this new @paramore album was clear, from start to finish. His skill, knowledge, and taste led the way. Working by his side, and seeing all these attributes grow and flourish, was very inspiring for me. Expect many more great things from him in the future! Thanks for reading, sorry for the glut of pics, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic.

the best part about andrew and neil’s first kiss isn’t even the kiss itself but what happens before. like neil having that scary conversation w/ wymack about becoming vice captain and he feels so scared and lost because he Wasn’t Supposed To Be This and the first thing he does is call andrew. he seeks comfort and assurance in andrew without even realizing it. then afterwards them buying the new car and andrew giving neil the key and just those moments where neil is starting to clue in that andrew means more to him than just an anchor keep him grounded. he realizes andrew means something very real to him which is a big reason why when the kiss happens, neil isn’t that shocked by it. even if he didnt realize it, thats what he felt was Really Right. im a mess.

working on aqua’s look when he still lived on and served homeworld and his backstory a lil. (EDIT: i added one w no color correction so u get a better idea of his past palette)

summary: a less valued cousin to other beryl gems like emerald and bixbite, aquamarine is still a very sturdy and appealing stone making them just bordering upper middle class. most aquamarine’s are used in navigation and anthropology/biology, specifically exploration of other galaxies and solar systems and are tasked with studying the culture and appeal of other species. a natural dauntless aura, strong intuition, and the curiosity of a child make these gems resilient and the perfect specimen for astronomical exploration and cultural anthropology and an innate leader.

specifics: when aquamarine lived on homeworld he was more reserved and refined, but only somewhat. a captain of a ship and leader of one of blue diamond’s exploration teams, aqua was like an informant to blue diamond’s court on possibly habitable planets and the behaviorism and societal tendencies of any intelligent species he and his team came across. but when sent to earth to take a few organic samples and do a routine “check up” on the evolutionary progress of humans, he fell in love with everything he saw. he had only ever heard of earth before and what he witnessed humans create with their own minds and two bare hands had him completely baffled. homeworld was centuries, posssibly even millennia ahead technology wise but homeworld’s sole purpose was to conquer and grow like a hive. he fell in love with how humans went from relying on what they created to keep them alive and knowing only practicality to inventing and building just for shits and giggles. having a strong curiosity for all things new and unique aqua felt right at home. he kept his distance at first but over time adapted to what he saw and started to take on more “human” mannerisms, explaining the sarcasm and horrible fashion taste of current aqua.
