“Good mor— damn, girl! Did you work on your presentation all night?!”

You shook your head as you chuckled at Sherry’s comment when you settled down in your cubicle beside hers. She stared you down with a look of worry and you simply couldn’t blame her for reacting that way. The dark circles under your eyes were well, darker than usual— you did look like you haven’t slept in days. Your hair was still slightly damp and was unruly since your alarm failed to wake you up and cut your preparation time about twenty minutes short.

“You could say that.” You told her with a shrug, taking out your laptop and switching it on.

Sherry let out a sigh, “Such an overachiever. Well, I think you should prepare before the big boss arrives. You’ve got…” she trailed, looking at her watch to check the time. “Exactly fifteen minutes to fix yourself.”

You silently cursed and hurriedly brought out your mirror and make-up bag. Your big pitch was today and you didn’t want to show up in the conference room looking like complete shit. Plus, showing up unprepared would only cause you a lot of negative feedback from your boss, Negan. And being the good employee that you were, that was the last thing you wanted to happen.

My tips for workout motivation!

So, you want to work out. But, oh no! You’re feeling a little unmotivated? You don’t know where to start? It isn’t always helpful to hear “just do it,” even if it’s a little bit true. There are times where we all feel unmotivated and that’s why we need to be dedicated, let out a deep sigh, and just do it.

It’s more mental than physical. Now, I know what you’re thinking. I know exactly what you’re thinking.


How do we become dedicated? It can take weeks to months for a habit to solidify so how do we break down a few of these mental barriers to even get there in the first place?

You don’t need a gym: A lot of people get stuck on “where” before “how” and there are a number of reasons why a gym membership is actually an inconvenience or out of budget for many individuals. There are also people who find the gym absolutely boring. That’s fine! Our bodies already come equipped with cardiovascular machinery and can be used as a resistance tool. Our own homes, parks, and backyards are perfect places to workout and with the addition of a few small, affordable tools you can even up to ante without ever setting foot inside a gym.

Small steps before big leaps: If you’ve never worked out before or simply need to get more active in general; then don’t worry too much with whipping your ass into a protoplasmic pile of goo quite yet. We’re all beginners at some point in time, and you need to let yourself be a beginner. The risk of injury is high for a beginner and that’s the biggest mood killer of them all. Don’t pop in a “Maximum Hardcore Power Shred 9000X²” DVD and expect to come out of that experience with a positive outlook on the days and weeks to come. You probably have some idea of where your fitness level is at, so be generous and be forgiving. For some people, fitness starts simply at taking more stairs and walking longer distances around town and that’s absolutely great.

Write out a plan for the day: At night, I often write in my phone’s little “sticky note” application what I want to do at the gym tomorrow morning and what weight, sets, and reps I may want to attempt them at. Not only will it help you zone in and focus on the task, but you’ll be thinking about your workout in advance as well. Having a plan will reduce the number of “unknown variables” so you can just get started and stop second guessing yourself, a life-saver for the anxious. 

Set out your workout clothes and supplies the night before: No matter when you’re planning to workout, just be ready well in advance. Don’t get stuck in a situation where you’re frantically trying to slap things together, getting stressed out, and only to discover your shorts are dirty and your water bottle has mysteriously been stolen by gremlins.

Try a different time of day if you’re stumbling with your current one: This one is dependant a lot on personality and the mercy of your schedule and home life. Understandably, some people have less flexibility so it’s not always possible to switch time slots around. This was personally my biggest game changer, though. I used to workout in the evening but by the end of a day my “introvert battery” was clocked and more times than not I said, “it’s blanket time.” Morning is my favorite time of day and I’m fresh when I wake up, so I started going in the morning. It sounds obvious but it honestly was the best thing I ever did.

Find an exercise that genuinely excites you: The best workout is one that is fun for you to do, not the one that burns the most calories. Don’t waste too much time on running if you’d rather have your toenails ripped out with a pair of rusty pliers. There are a million ways to get a workout, so shop around!

Switch it up and be open to trying something new: Having a game plan in place certainly is a pillar of success, but a good dose of spontaneity can give you that twinge of excitement you’re looking for and even introduce you to new workouts you never guessed you’d like. Personally, I’d love to try a Zumba class sometime!

Try a podcast or audiobook instead of music: Only continue your playthrough a little before a workout, while working out, and a little after a workout. If you’re getting somewhere juicy, guess what? Gotta workout.

Do something if you’re not up for everything: Making a good habit and becoming dedicated isn’t about having all cylinders firing at max 24/7. That is the key difference between motivation and dedication. If you don’t feel like challenging your personal records today, that’s fine. Pick a comfortable intensity, pick a nice small chunk of time. Also, going for a walk is an absolutely marvelous workout. It counts. It all counts.  Feeling like a shut in today? Keep a jump rope and a yoga mat around. Build a list of Youtube videos you could do on that rainy day. Get some bodyweight routines in or jog in place a little. If you’re sore, just stretch. Doing a little bit of anything will uphold your habit and your dedication. Some days we achieve, other days we survive. 

Sometimes rest days are announced, not planned: If you’ve been getting into the swing of things but wake up feeling sick, exhausted, or have unexplained pain take the rest if you really think you need it. You’re not “skipping the gym,” if you seriously need the rest. Try as we might to have a super tight plan, sometimes we have unexpected issues. Rest is also necessary.

@unfcking Ask and you shall receive! I hope you find something helpful here.

Hey! I'm so in love with your Tyler HCs. You're doing great! Could you do one about Tyler comforting you after a recent break up with a pretty crappy GF/BF that you dated to get your mind off of him?? Sorry if this doesn't make sense, if so, just ignore it! ☺️

I think I get what you mean but I’m sorry if I’m getting it wrong (also thanks, I’m glad you enjoy my hcs!)

- You didn’t even know why you were crying so much about this
- Your s/o wasn’t exactly very good to you
- They were so manipulative, most of the time you didn’t even know if they really loved you or not
- You only started dating them because you wanted to get over your crush on Tyler
- Because you knew it wasn’t meant to be a reality between you and him
- You were scared of messing up your friendship, scared of losing him
- But now you were crying because your s/o had left you for someone they were seeing on the side
- You felt stupid and unworthy and alone
- You heard a knock at the door and thought maybe it was your s/o to take you back.
- You wiped your tears before opening the door to see Tyler with a teddybear and your favorite candy. “Amy told me what happened.”
- You just started crying even more and let Tyler guide you to the couch. You curl up with the teddybear and Tyler sits next to you
- “You deserve better than them. Someone who cheats on you and then leaves you isn’t worth a single tear from you.” He soothes you, wiping away tears
- He spends the rest of the day holding you while you cry and trying to make you laugh and smile
- You worry that you’re bugging him with all your crying but he reminds you that he wouldn’t be there unless he wanted to be
- He tells you that you’re wonderful and deserve someone who will treat you like royalty
- Also some thinly veiled threats towards your ex s/o
- He helps you delete their number and block them on social media

- A few weeks later when you’ve had time to move on from your ex you confess to Tyler you only dated them to get over your crush on Tyler
- He kisses you and tells you that there’s no need to get over him if you just dated him to begin with

I think my role is to shut up and listen. A lot of white people should shut up and listen. They really don’t know what the African-American experience truly is. When you have people getting shot in their cars for no reason and being put in fucking jail cells and it’s for profit, we have a serious problem, and the first thing you need to do is get educated. Don’t try to do this, like, ‘Blue lives matter.’ Don’t try to do the 'All lives matter.’ Just shut up and listen to the experience. And then move forward after that.

i wonder about garnet’s occasional “harsh truths” + steven challenging those assumptions. her statements don’t feel like lies, or deliberately trying to shut steven down, so much as hew own acceptance that “this is how i think it is”. the show’s really more about the gems learning from each other than steven learning from his guardians, or slowly becoming like… well, anyone, even if he understands why people are the way they are.

steven’s usually more focused on helping than challenging. his response to garnet’s pessimistic statements usually follow the overall trend of *gem assumes negative thing* *steven goes “ok but… we could try?”* *gem doesn’t really think it’ll work out* *things (partially) work out, even if they couldn’t accomplish exactly what they wanted right away*.

he’s a bit harsher when the gems legitimately are hiding things: you have that “blow-up” in steven’s dream, fittingly between him and garnet, as steven really has every reason to believe that he can go outside the crystal gems’ wishes, and that it’s sometimes even necessary to find out the truth.  

i thought that might happen someday - steven stands up to garnet - and really the crystal gems’ authority in his life - and *directly* says no, i’m not gonna give up on this, stop trying to hide things, instead of going behind their backs or temporarily accepting what little they do say. he’s done: he’s looking for answers insistently, regardless of how far he has to go.

ideally, this would prompt them *actually* start sharing, and do so without reservations, like steven wants… but they still seem scared. and even if they do share, the question then becomes whether steven will accept what they pre-approve as “facts steven can handle” as the end of it, guess we’re done here, let’s accept the status quo… or keep searching for other perspectives.

(except that’s not really a major question, becauuuse)

i mean. it's steven. knowing steven, of course it’s the latter. he knows the crystal gems are well-intentioned, especially when it comes to him - they’re often right that there's some danger involved in revealing everything, but… steven accepts that. so it really turns into a question of whether the crystal gems can accept that he will continue to try to change things, help “enemies”, and risk a lot, regardless of how they feel.

Excellent words from Felix, as usual! And, yeah, it is very interesting that even with the idea of the Gems trying to be more open with Steven, I think they’re partially very scared of potentially losing him. His esteem and happiness has come to mean a lot to them, and there’s things like Pink Diamond where I think that gets in the way of being honest and informative.

If Pink wasn’t a tyrant that couldn’t be negotiated with- if Rose was not 100% justified in taking her out- even as it is, this is the root of a massive interpersonal conflict between Steven and Rose, and with Garnet and Pearl in particular, they hinge so much of what they do on reverence of Rose. But Steven, being who he is, and Rose being who she is- it’s not even a matter that Steven isn’t like Rose and isn’t going to become Rose Quartz 2.0 at this point, it’s a matter of, Rose’s actions during the war are fundamentally irreconcilable with Steven’s worldview and values. If everyone’s important, how can you accept killing someone? That stands whether or not we take Rose Diamond theory- the Crystal Gems did not get through the war without enemy casualties. It was a war. That’s not how they work.

And Rose Diamond, arguably, paints it in an even harsher light- Rose abandoned a bunch of people, leaving them to mourn her for thousands of years, letting them think she was their perfect devoted leader to the end even when she turned on them. For people like Jasper, Rose didn’t even afford Jasper the dignity of letting her be a broken pedestal.

So there’s an increasing shakeup in the Crystal Gems because I think Garnet, Rose, and Pearl all kind of had similar biases and fit together on that. They all have felt pretty vindicated in their approach to Homeworld, and trying to maintain that solidarity, when they had personal doubts, they buried them. Pearl in Space Race aggressively tries to downplay how much she misses space, and Homeworld, even when, as we see in that episode, it’s an incredible driving force for her. Rose cheerfully presented herself as untroubled, while quietly, privately telling people that she’s an awful person and they really shouldn’t get to know her. And it seems entirely possible there’s a lack of communication between Ruby and Sapphire on Blue Diamond and how to feel about her- because they’ve just been able to leave that in a box under the floorboards, because it isn’t like Blue Diamond is going to show up again- only now she has, and, that’s a problem.

But Steven’s not letting that lie, and I think it comes back to the theme of cathartic release. Because on both sides of the divide, feelings have been allowed to stagnate rather than being processed, and Steven, in his need to know, in his unwillingness to just say “okay!” when told “don’t go there, don’t try to find out more about Pink Diamond”- he’s dragging those skeletons out of the closet. And, really, people will be happier, ultimately, if they do process those issues- even though it takes a period of actually letting yourself feel bad.

anonymous asked:

Something that is honestly kind of disturbing me a bit is the people who say that Colleen deserves someone better than Danny. Like... what? Danny treats Colleen with respect, tells her how amazing she, asks for her consent when he is having his first time, doesn't want her in danger but is not too overprotective, and validates her feelings of betrayal about the Hand. People can ship who they want to ship but I am confused with what they want.

(you’re probably getting a longer response than you wanted, but here you go)

I’ve seen people saying that he didn’t respect her or was condescending towards her, and when people say that I’m pretty sure we weren’t watching the same show, but. There’s like, one moment I can think of - the scene in the dojo when Danny is with her students and hits one of them, which i think might be what people are referencing?? What they seem to be ignoring, however, is that Colleen had exactly none of that crap and Danny did apologize, and he left without an argument when she told him to. He respected her there, respected her through the whole thing. 

I think the other one I’ve seen talked about was their sparring scene (bless this scene honestly) and said it was “condescending” like uhm no??? It was fun and interesting to see because they have different styles, it’s completely reasonable for Danny to have wanted to teach her stuff because he’s really enthusiastic about it and it wasn’t intended in a “condescending” way. And she enjoyed it, so. 

He’s protective of her, sure, but he doesn’t try and stop her from fighting. He recognizes that she is an amazing fighter. 

Honestly I’m not sure what people think that they want. I think the whole “she deserves someone better than danny” is mostly coming from the fact that apparently people don’t want the asian female lead to be in a relationship with the white male lead. I’ve seen that argument so many times around here, and it’s a crap argument like. 

ignore race for a minute. ignore skin color. maybe, just maybe, you could look at the fact that they’re good for each other. look at the positives of their relationship (and there’s a lot of positives) and just see how they are with each other. like i said, pretty sure these people weren’t watching the same show. by all means, people, ship what you want but i’m confused by this “she deserves someone better than him” stuff 

Leonard pulled a sheet off something vaguely rectangular. It seemed to Vetinari to be all wooden wheels and long thin spars which, he saw when he moved closer, were inscribed thickly with letters and numbers. A number of the wheels were not round but oval or heart shaped or some other curious curve. When Leonard turned a handle, the whole thing moved with a complex oiliness quite disquieting in something merely mechanical.

“No, impossible” 

“Hello boys. Did you miss me?”

“How are you here? You died.”

“Oh John, being dead is so boring. Cute kid by the way. Looks exactly like you.”

“If you’ve hurt her I will-”

I love love love that in all your works Lucien calls Elain 'dove' and 'love' and 'pet' - but was curious as to whether you had any ideas on what Elain would call him? Either in the bedroom (😉) or just as a cute lil pet name! Tysm

I think Elain is a fan of “dear/dearest” as terms of affection (She’s always completely sincere about it, unlike some of the other couples; Nesta called Cassian “dearest” exactly one time and it was so pointedly sarcastic he feared for his life.) But as far as pet names…. hmmm. I really like the idea of her having a cutesy little nickname for him but I’m not thinking of anything?? if anyone has suggestions hit me.

(In the bedroom, though, she spends a lot of time calling him “my lord” ;))))) )

"i think a lot of you guys forget the 'person' part". Really sums up my feelings. Even when she yelled at Weiss about Sun before they met, she said "he's a person". See a lot of things where people seem to forget that Blake is a person and not a cat. a joke here or there can be funny, but its kind of upsetting that one of the seemingly most common things is to reduce her to a cat, like a pet, when that seems to be EXACTLY what she's fighting against in the show.

I like to think that she shares some traits with cats, personally? Like perhaps she flinches when spooked or she does enjoy being in the presence of others without telling them; but they’re easily traits that people just have. Focusing on just the cat part while fun, can be a little tiresome after a while.

Okay raise your hand if thought this video was going to be about pixlpit just because of the title of this video? ROBINCEPTION! xD 

In all seriousness though I like when Seán plays games like this that talk about disorders and mental illnesses because it opens up interesting discussions and thoughts from him. I love that he opens up these kind of discussions and that he’s more open minded about these things and is interested into being to listening and learning about what people go through when they have certain kind of disorders and mental illnesses. It’s nice because there’s so many people who act like mental illness doesn’t exist or that people just use them as excuses to be lazy but for most people that’s not the case at all far from it and when people try to talk to those people they won’t listen because they think they know exactly what you’re going through and they really don’t and it’s extremely frustrating to talk about how you’re feeling when people think it’s not real. 
A lot of the people I’m around on daily basis have disorders and mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, OCD and many many more. Let’s just say that I’m lucky that the only things that I have are Asperger’s Syndrome and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. But this game reminded me of my Mom. Not that she has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome specifically but she does have a Chronic Illness that’s extremely painful to go through and because it’s a newer illness recently founded and that’s hard to get diagnosed with and get evidence for not that many people take her seriously with it and think that it’s all in her head. She has fibromyalgia, I see how much pain she’s in on a daily basis and I’d never wish anyone to go through that while also dealing with the frustration of proving you actually have it too. Sometimes I extremely admire my Mom for doing as much as she can’t despite having it, she can be a very strong woman. :) 

I don’t have Chronic Fatigue Sydrome either but I can understand the feeling of being tried super easily and not being able to get that many things because you just don’t have the energy. I’m around a lot of pessimistic people and that can be extremely draining for me to be around because for some reason I take in how people around me feel and sometimes I’ll feel stressed or upset for literally no reason at all. Plus I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and when you get extremely stressed out and anxious over something you are just exhausted afterwards. I’m anxious very often so it’s hard for me to get things done for myself because I can get overwhelmed with something super easily and also because I have Asperger’s Syndrome too I’ll hyper focus and obsess on something and only think about that. So I have a hard time getting the urge to take care of myself sometimes and that can REALLY suck. The combination of both these things is what keeps me from moving forward with my life and even just getting the little things done for myself too on a very bad day with my Anxiety. Whenever I try to think of what I want to do in the future my brain just freezes and I just shut down and avoid it and freak myself because I’m so afraid of never being happy with my life. It’s a viscous cycle that I’ve been going through these last couple of years and it can be extremely hard to explain to people about that because they think I’m just being lazy and mooching off my parents when that’s not true at all. If I felt like I could go out and get a job I would have one by now! But my anxiety is so bad that it gets in the way of that and I find something wrong with every job I come across. 
I’ve gotten better with my anxiety in recent years but I still have a long way to go but I have a lot of faith in myself that I’ll get to where I want to go and be eventually it’s just going to be harder for me then it is for most people my age. I know that one day I’ll be living the happy life that I want for myself. :)

I hate the way my body looks but i cant stop fucking eating. I get stressed over gaining weight so i eat more. I hate myself so much for this.

Instead of associating food with gaining weight, try thinking of it as just fueling yourself. When you eat, tell yourself that all youre doing is giving yourself energy because that is technically what youre doing. repeat it in your head if you have to. It is totally okay to eat, just make sure that youre eating enough and not too much for your body.
Try to learn to love yourself even if your body may not be exactly how you want it to be. Regardless of how it looks, it is still a part of you and you are beautiful no matter what x

"I didn’t know the meaning of the world until I found you." + tomarry?

“I didn’t know the meaning of the world until I found you.”

Harry looked up from the pile of papers he had to go through only to see Tom gazing at him from across the room, something oddly warm about his eyes making Harry wonder what exactly was going on.

“Are you sick?” He asked suspiciously, waving his wand to cast a quick warming spell on the room. Spring was unexpectedly chilly this year and Ron’s kids caught a cold last week. Harry was more than reluctant to deal with Tom getting dragon pox or some other nasty disease.

“Do I have to be sick to be nice to you?” The way Tom asked the question, leaning dramatically on the couch, made Harry smirk and he couldn’t help teasing:

“Well… Maybe?”

Probably thinking it was way beneath him to answer such a claim, Tom returned to his book - something titled Immortal and tired: 10 easy steps to kill eternal boredom - once again drowning in lectureHe couldn’t see Harry’s smile softening as the Auror got up from his desk and walked towards the couch, placing a gentle kiss on his dark locks.

“Me too, Tom.” Harry found his place right beside him, the old book forgotten somewhere on the floor. “The meaning of the world, I didn’t know it too.”
