and tell me to do some of my school work


So, I started it.

The Lotr AU some of you saw lately is becoming…a comic.

Since my lack of skills with writing (and my empty wallet that prevents me from hiring a ghost writer) I choose to tell this story with the only thing I am confident I can do; drawings!

I will be sincere, I have no idea how constant updates will be, I hope at least once a week (and it would be amazing if I can manage to), but life goes on in the real world and probably school and work will get in the way A LOT.

Anyway, the first three pages of Tiënya are here. I’ll give my eternal gratitude to anyone who would like to share and comment it. Let me know what do you think till now (even if nothing really happens), I’d love to hear opinion and hypothesis about what’s next.

Thank you again for supporting and always following me.

Tarot Readings

Hey Guys. So I’m currently going through some financial issues, and as a result I’m going to start giving 3 card tarot readings for $5 to help get me through some bills and help build up my savings a bit. I’ll be doing 10 at a time, though if I do get that many it will take up to 7 days due to my work and school schedule. The readings will be done in write up form, through email or private message via tumblr, and payment through my account, which I will put the link to in my bio at the top of my blog.  

If you’re interested in getting a reading, please private message me so we can discuss, I’m open to reading for specific questions or just general readings as well, and of course if theres something in the reading that I don’t explain or that you don’t fully understand I will try to go more in depth. Please note that these are a lot more personal and specific than my free one card draws, so any request sent through anon will be ignored.  

Donations and tips would also be greatly appreciated. Please PLEASE help me out and spread the word by reblogged this post, tagging it would be even better  

Thank you all So much!!

Hey to all those people telling people “ it’s not so bad, just power through the cramps” when they're on their period because it’s not an excuse to miss school/work etc.!

I had bad cramps today, but I tried to “power through it” and went to class anyways, even though my grandmother had to drive me because I couldn’t walk to the bus.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to feel like I was going to throw up in the middle of my lecture, leaving to take a walk outside in the cold to try and clear my head, even though walking made my right side feel as though it was being ripped in two.

I tried to “power through it” when I started getting cold sweat all over my body, taking off my sweater and then putting it back on two seconds later because my body couldn’t decide if it was hot or cold.

 I tried to “power through it” when spots started to appear in my vision, and just kept walking towards the exit.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to dry heave, and started walking faster.

I tried to “power through it” when my ears started ringing and the spots took over my vision and I was so so hot but shivering and my side felt on fire and twisted into knots and stabbed all at once.

I tried to power through it to the point where I collapsed in the middle of my college hallway. A stranger brought me to Outreach Services, where I lay on the floor, vomiting, for an hour until somebody could pick me up and take me home.

The school paramedics told me that I had passed out because I put too much stress on my already taxed body. My body was taxed because of hormonal fluctuations and blood loss aka my period.

Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. In the past when I’ve had cramps like this, I’ve stayed in bed and eaten strawberries and watched MASH all day.

So don’t you DARE tell me that you should “power through the cramps and do it anyways”. Powering through made me pass out. Powering through made me have to be wheeled out of the school in a wheelchair because I couldn’t keep my balance to walk. Powering through made my grandmother with osteoporosis and a tendency to panic have to come pick me up from school and help me up the stairs and almost break her hip when I started to collapse backwards on the front steps. Powering through made my 13 year old brother have to supervise me while I took a bath because I was afraid I would pass out and drown (he was super sweet about it actually; we closed the curtain and he read me Voyage of the Dawn Treader). Powering through made my mother who works to support our family pretty much on her own have to take time off work to come home and make sure I was okay.

In conclusion; If someone feels crappy because of their period cramps, leave them alone. Don’t make them do things anyways, because you might make it worse. And definitely don’t make them feel bad for not wanting to do things because of cramps; that’s the reason I even got out of bed this morning. Be nice to people on their period. Possibly buy them chocolate or painkillers. Nut don’t make them do things when they have cramps, and definitely don’t tell them “it’s nothing, power through” because cramps? Cramps can be one of the worst things you could possibly imagine.

Seriously. Fuck you all.

anonymous asked:

Why can't you accept the fact that Lucaya is dead? In Ski Lodge they agreed to be just friends and Lucas showed that he liked Riley more. If Lucaya were to happen now it'd look messy and out of nowhere. Do you expect Maya to suddenly stop liking Josh and then go back to liking L-oh wait, she never liked him. She was having an identity crisis.

Dear Nonny,

Thank you so much for blessing my inbox with your question. I’m not being facetious, I genuinely mean it, I’m always up for discussing my GMW thoughts and feelings, so thanks for giving me an excuse to! All my friends get way more anons than I do and let me tell you, I am starved for some attention (don’t give me too much though, guys, I technically need to be working on grad school stuff right now)

Anyway, nonny, if I’m being honest, my desire for Lucaya definitely fizzled after Lucas chose Riley. I don’t think Lucas and Riley are long term end game, but he made that choice based on his feelings and confusion and whatever else, and it made me a little tired of it all, and of him, and honestly lose a little respect for him, because I think from pre-Ski Lodge episodes there is some clear evidence that he has strong feelings for Maya.

I think it’s incredibly unfair to say that Lucas and Maya never had feelings for one another- if they didn’t, the triangle would have never happened, there never would have been a need for either to step back, or a choice for Lucas to make. The entire point was that, yes, they all had and have complicated emotions towards each other. 

Part of learning about life and love is exploring what exactly each of those emotions means… you know you feel differently for different people but you may not quite be sure the significance of it. Or you may know you feel very affectionate towards someone and want to love them, but you aren’t sure if you can or will. And you can’t figure out the answer to that unless you try. Unless you engage and commit to growing closer and being more vulnerable with each other, or exploring how the feelings change or deepen as you press into them. 

Lucas and Riley, and Lucas and Maya both had emotions between them that could be explored if they chose to. Ultimately Lucas chose to explore those feelings more with Riley and chose to stop exploring those feelings with Maya. As we can see in Girl Meets Goodbye, Riley and Lucas after exploring things together feel very amicably towards each other, and very content and thankful that they can count the other as a very important first milestone in their lives, and hopeful that no matter where life takes each, the other will be happy… but they seem to know that the road for them isn’t going deeper than this, at least romantically. They were each other’s first step into the pool of romantic love, and it was a lovely wade and left them with happy feelings and left them feeling more confident to move on to deeper waters with someone else later. And that’s beautiful and lovely and I love them for what they are.

Lucas and Maya… are certainly in an awkward position where they never finished exploring their emotions towards the other, but cut them off and walked away. And they may stay like that. And I certainly wouldn’t expect either to be rushing into wanting to explore something right after a break up with a mutual best friend… but I do think that if at some point the timing was right and they still had those underlying emotions, they could go back and explore them. Maybe they would lead to nothing, maybe they would lead to something. It’s actually quite similar to the “long game” idea Maya has with Josh of that… you’re out there, and maybe one day the timing will be right. Maybe it won’t be or maybe by the time it would be, the emotions will be gone, the connection or the moment lost, and it won’t be something either will want to explore. But it’s simply not factual to claim that they never had any moments that could have been explore if they chose to. Yes, Maya accepted the narrative that it was an identity crisis, but their moments that gave me reason to feel they had more to explore happened much sooner than any identity crisis Maya may have started. But yes, part of life is figuring out who you are and what you want, and that process is never really fully done, and is certainly not at a place of decent centered contentment until your mid to late 20s at the earliest IMO. And guess what… you are allowed to change your mind, more than once even, as you try to figure life out. There aren’t actually any rules you have to go by here…. you’re allowed to date your best friend’s ex, you’re allowed to marry your best friend’s crush, you’re allowed to marry your best friend’s widowerer even (thanks great-grandma Ione for giving me that family story). Life ebbs and flows and circumstances change and we’re all just figuring it out as we go along.

I’m not holding my breath for it to happen the same way I am for Riley and Farkle to finally explore their feelings. Like Riley and Farkle, I think Lucas and Maya would need time and some distance from current events to get there. And I think there is potential, but potential is not a guarantee of success, or a guarantee that both parties will want to or be able to try. 

please be safe, y’all. if you have to call out of school/work, do it, but please try at least get some fresh air, eat, sleep if you can, read/watch something cool. talk to the people you care about. 

the post about my dad’s phone call went viral last night and i’ve seen such an outpouring of support and hope, and i’m so grateful to everyone who commented to tell me and everyone else that we’re not alone. i’m also so happy that my dad could brighten anyone’s mood, even just for a second. 

and then there’s the people who have responded to say that’s great for me, but their family all voted for trump. from the bottom of my heart–you are not alone. even if it feels that way right now, even if you’re trapped. YOU’RE NOT ALONE. i’m 27. i know it’s very easy for me to say this. i can pack my shit up and leave if need be. but to all my teen and college followers: hold on. you can get through this. there are people on your side. me, my dad, roughly 50% of americans. the rest of the world. 

it’s okay to feel despair right now. but we’re more than a fucking match for this. 

things that i’ve witnessed/heard/been a part of in (mostly) my junior year of high school
  • the room is dead silent as we’re working in an NAHS meeting and some girl is like “wait,,,, you saw my anal beads?” 
  •  a convo i heard: “man, I’d love to see nirvana live!!!” “oh my god same!” 
  • had a teacher tell me the definition of a rainbow party (feel free to research)  
  • convo between a math teacher and a boy in my class: “does anyone have any questions for me?” “yes actually: if i want to become a mortician, do i need to go to an actual college or like a trade school or something?" 
  • heard my principal say “oh wow, the vagina!”
  • had that same principal help me on my homework
  • a boy leaked some sort of very-dark-brownish fluid out of his backpack and claimed he “didn’t know” what it was
  • a dude asked his girlfriend to prom by bringing a fucking donkey to school and asking “can i take dat ass to prom?”
  • heard a group of girls talking about their skirt lengths, and i overheard one of them say “The almond people don’t like when your skirts are above your ankles”
  • was forced to listen to a teacher complain to my class about how much she hates Ohio for a half hour
  • had THAT SAME PRINCIPAL sit down and show me a video of his dog Freddie for 10 minutes, with commentary
  • “drive your tractor to school day”
  • one of our senior pranks was throwing eggs off a balcony
  • learned that my 10th grade english teacher wrote smut and was in a punk band in the 80s
  • that same 10th grade english teacher was also a model in a picture book without a shirt on
  • HAD THAT SAME DAMN PRINCIPAL propose that next year we close the school off from allowing incoming freshmen in and just get a Dunkin Donuts delivery service instead
  • ordered pizza one day for a little party and the person who delivered it was my cousin

i will add on as my next/last school year comes to an end

Jeon Jungkook. His name used to spark something inside of me, he used to be the light of my life, the highlight of my week, he was the Earth to my moon. Was he the Romeo to my Juliet though? I wouldn’t say so. We were more like Bonnie and Clyde just without the romance and deaths, he used to be my ride or die.

Deep down, I wanted us to be like Romeo and Juliet, loving each other and doing anything to make the other happy. Deep down, I loved him. He was the Jane Eyre to my Edward Rochester, a complex relationship that somehow worked out. Nope. He just turned out to be a complete asshat in the end.

Hi! I am a Junior. I am taking Physics and I am absolutely terrible in Math. I currently have a D+. I am trying, but my teacher gives multiple assignments and expects us to get them done by the next day. He doesn't even give us a lesson, just reading from the chapter, and if he does give us a lesson, it is very brief and doesn't explain much. It is really hard for me to try to catch up when I have 5 other classes. My parents do not think I am trying and I have no way to prove I am. What do I do?

Keep trying your best.  Privately and politely tell your teacher your concerns and ask for some extra help.  If this doesn’t work, talk to another adult in the building you trust and see what other supports are available for you in the school.  Good luck.

anonymous asked:

You seem to be busy! What are up to right now? Freelance work?

*sobs* Aww you are sweet, anon–thanks for asking. Nothing too glamorous here, I assure you. 

I do have two Big freelance projects going on right now (and at least one of which is due in February…R.I.P. me). School just started, commissions, usual Fantomestein up-keep, etsy work, and to top it all off, I’ve been working through some personal health issues over the past few months years. I’ve had to travel in and out of town every other week for medical stuff and juggling that and school and work…10/10 do not recommend! To clarify, I highly recommend you seek help for health concerns–just maybe don’t over-commit yourself like I do/did…ha. Also I was quite sick for most of the holidays and I found out that my insurance had dropped me without telling me and I had to sort that out and there were bills and prescriptions and akjdhfskf, thank goodness for my angel mommy, that’s all I gotta say. 

Long story short, this is all why I had to take an unexpected hiatus with Fantomestein (and general art updates). I appreciate everyone’s patience with me and my mysterious absences. I opted to be more private about a lot of this–partly not to burden you all, and partly because I haven’t decided how much I want to share for professional/mental reasons. 

In any event, I love you all–your kind words, sweet messages, fanart, adorable head canons, and what-have-yous have meant more than I can adequately express over the past year. <3 

EXO Reaction when their girlfriend is angry because of the hickeys

XO,Admin A~

/I don’t own any of the gifs used, unless stated otherwise/


*Intimidating Chan* “Are you sure you don’t like them, because last night it didn’t seem that way….”


“If they tell you something at school, send them to me. I’ll take care of it” *Badass Kris*


*Pouts* “But jaaaagi.. what’s make out without hickeys? The work doesn’t feel complete!” *Naughty*


*Dramatic* “I think I’m a bad kisser guys… she was angry this morning… what do I do? I need some lessons”


*Teasing* “Don’t be like that babe… the other day my whole neck was covered in hickeys and I had a photo shoot… next time I’ll be careful okay?”


*Teases you the whole week just to provoke you* “Sorry jagi… you said no more kisses on the neck”


*Depressed* “Just when I had learned to make them… she says no. What do I do with my life now?”


“It’s okay babe… I know you don’t want them to know what we do. Now, come here. I want to give you a sweet kiss”


“You are so adorable when you are angry! Fine fine no more hickeys, now let me squeeze you”


*Feels bad* “I’m sorry jagi… I didn’t mean to make you angry…. I’ll control myself”


*Does something cute so you forgive him* “Bunny asks for forgiveness, I’m sorry sweetie carrot!”


*Daddy mode* “You don’t question daddy, little girl… You know you like it!” *You know he is joking and won’t do it again*

[Masterlist] [Guideline]

I feel incredibly lucky to be able to communicate and interact with a lot of you, even if it’s infrequent and (VERY) casually because I have this powerful hunch that you’ll go on to be the best at what you do. The fruits of some of your hard work + skill starting to sprout and I wonder if you can see it too? Your greatness budding into mastery. It’s truly stimulating & inspiring, getting to be a witness to that. Hunch might not have been the right word, it feels more like an objective truth.
I remember my 5th grade art teacher telling me that when he was a young man he was friends with Jacob Lawrence, or my mother telling me about her friends from high school who used to be cool with Run-DMC. Humanizing people who sometimes feel like something else, tying them to the same world I live in.
I know one day my withered/cyborg body will be happy to nostalgically tell a young hologram: oh, _____? We were mutuals once.

interview tips!!!

so today we had a career guidance class thing and my teacher shared some really good tips so i thought i would share them. 

before the interview:

  • arm yourself with information.
    • read up on the organisation/job/school beforehand.
    • if you know who your interviewer is going to be, google their name. it might come in handy.
  • prep yourself.
    • know why you want it. why do you need to get the job/get into the school?
    • prepare answers to standard questions, like ‘tell me more about yourself’ and ‘what are your strengths and weaknesses’.
  • make sure you have all the details about the interview.
    • confirm, double confirm and triple confirm the location. look it up on google maps and check street view. you don’t want to get lost and show up late.
    • know what documents you have to bring and put them into a nice file.

just before the interview:

  • take out all body piercings.
  • avoid eating spicy food, anything with garlic and onion in them, and basically anything that will either make your breath smell or stick to your teeth.
  • brush your teeth if possible.
  • if you sweat easily, don’t wear shirts where sweat stains are easily seen, like grey.
  • try and arrive at least 10 minutes before the interview

during the interview:

  • knock on the door if it is closed. be polite.
  • always offer the interviewer a firm handshake and always always greet them.
  • wait for the interviewer to gesture before taking a seat.
  • keep your hands on your lap. this will help to prevent you from crossing your arms or fidgeting.
  • speak in the same volume as the interviewer.
  • look straight, not up or down.
  • be energetic and don’t be monotonous!
  • at the end, ALWAYS thank the interviewer for their time. 

after the interview:

  • if you are applying for an internship or attachment with a organisation, always follow up with a thank you note.
    • in the note, say thank you (obviously), then state what you benefitted from the interview. compliment the organisation and then declare your interest again.

i hope this helps you in your future interviews! good luck! :-)

rules: tag 9 people you want to get to know better

I was tagged by @soggywarmpockets <3

how old are you? 22
what’s your current job? I do some here or there stuff to earn little bit of cash. Mostly art commissions. I’m also looking into making a comic and maybe a Patreon. :U
what are you talented at? Drawing (though there are 15 year olds better than me *cries*, some people tell me I have a nice singing voice?, uhhh being empathetic? Making internet friends who are thousands of miles too far to visit *cries more*
what is a big goal you are working toward (or have already achieved)? Gaining weight like I was suppose to last year (the stress of the last 5 months basically fucked my progress over), getting better at my art, going back to school and getting a general art degree, figuring out what I wanna do with my life and whether I want to storyboard or character design, …learn to drive and get over my road anxiety, go to therapy for my anger/depression/anxiety/etc.
what’s your aesthetic? check out my blog as well as the tag #momo aesthetic. I tend to love gothic, morbid, lolita, pastel, flowery, 80′s anime style, expressive art, photography, ballet, Black positivity aesthetic photos or art, old school cartoon styles, girls in tuxes and vests, guys in dresses or skirts (especially ladybeard), agender fashion stuff, I like a lot of things   
do you collect anything? I have a lot of toys I got from McDonalds as a kid but generally I collect DBZ figures, anime figures (when I can afford to), Hello Kitty stuff, stuff from Japan people give me, *cough* Naruto stuff *cough*, pretty things like rocks or marbles, art books/supplies, etc. 
what’s a topic you always talk about? Anime, DC stuff, Music, Cats, Cartoons, Web Comics, Art, Animation, LBGT/Black Community/Social issues, STEVEN UNIVERSE
what’s a pet peeve of yours? Lately it’s the strange switch people have began to do between the words Loose and Lose. THEY ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE. FUCKING READ OVER YOUR WORK. 
good advice to give? Learn to have some damn empathy this year. Think about other people than yourself, be intersectional in your fight for basic human rights (including: mentally ill/disabled/physical and mentally abused/POC or all of these combined). Take care of your mind and body this year. Be kind but also don’t let people take advantage of you. You are a strong force to be reckoned with and you have the power to change the way things are even if it’s something as small as not letting a person be harassed on a train or some shit like handing a homeless person on the street $5. Your job isn’t to make everyone around you comfortable but it’s understandable if you’re in a situation that dictates that you must and have no other choice but to do just that. Live your life. LIVE IT. Get help, don’t be afraid or too proud to ask for it. Breathe my friend. Be sure to drink plenty of water and at the very least eat some ramen or chicken noodle soup, also take a warm shower, you’ll feel better.

I took M to school, did our usual ritual of “a standing up hug, count to a hundred, then throw kisses from the door,” then called 3 prisons trying to figure out where her dad is. He’s out of the solitary spot and in a reception spot, like the Ellis Island of the DOC, on draft to move somewhere else today, but they can’t tell me where until tonight. I’m bringing cupcakes to M’s class this afternoon– she wants rainbow mini Melissa’s (not near my house or her school)– and NEED to do some writing work this morning but I’m having trouble focusing. I’m reading prison message boards, trying to guess where he could go, reading up on the various places, trying to find positives: “oh, this one has a metal shop, he’d love that! That one has good vending machines in the visiting room, M could get ice cream!”

His parents didn’t say thank you, and his mom didn’t even respond, but his dad did agree to send the lawyer a fruit basket.

The Studyblr Aesthetic, and Why It’s Unnecessary

So you want to be a studyblr? You want to post your pretty notes and your perfect MacBook beside your snazzy planner? But, problem is, you don’t have any of the above. Too bad for you, you can’t be a studyblr! Bye! WRONG.

While I do happen to have the above, I’m here to let you in on some secrets on how to be a successful studyblr and student. Keep reading!

  1. You don’t need a MacBook to learn/study/do whatever. Any computer works. Heck, you don’t even need a computer. If a tablet is more in your price range, buy a tablet. They do most of the same jobs and can be a fraction of the price. Plus no studyblr is going to tell you how annoying it is to shove a 13-15″ Mac into your backpack and lug it around all day. My back kills me by the end of an 8 hour school day. Not cute. Not necessary. 
  2. You don’t need fancy pens. Sure ordering some fancy pens from halfway across the world is fun and exciting and they’re almost always amazing quality (Hello, I love my JetStreams and my MildLiners), pens from office stores like Staples work just fine. You don’t need to break your budget on fancy pens. To this day, I still love those cheap 2$ for 20 pen PaperMates. 
  3. Bullet Journals are overrated. This one is more of an opinion thing. You don’t need to bullet journal your entire day to ensure that you get stuff done. Simply using sticky notes and a sheet of paper to write a simple to do list works just as well. To be honest, I still don’t know how to use a chronodex. 
  4. A planner is nice, but doesn’t have to cost a fortune. I’m in love with my Kikki K. It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me in terms of organization. However, if you can’t afford something as expensive as a leather bound planner or an Erin Condren, it’s OK! Hit up your local paper place and look for a simple 10$ planner. They’re out there. 
  5. That Google Extension, Momentum, is useless. I don’t even have any other words for this one. It literally is a pretty picture on a screen. I don’t know how that motivates you. To each their own. 
  6. Rewriting your notes can be beneficial, but spending 3hrs on one note, is not. If you can’t read your in class writing, rewrite it. If you’re rewriting your notes so they look nice for your Tumblr photos, waste of time. The important part here is that you’re learning from your notes. 
  7. Lined paper and cheap notebooks work just as nice as Moleskines. Plus they’re a fraction of the price. I love a spiral spine and Moleskines just don’t work. 
  8. Your handwriting doesn’t need to be neat. I get so many questions asking me how to change handwriting or how to make writing look like mine. Embrace it. Have you ever seen a doctors script? Can you read it? Didn’t think so. 
  9. The photos I take of my study space, don’t actually resemble my study space. Half the time I’m sprawled out on my couch with paper everywhere. When you see a study photo on my blog (like the one above), I’ve organized it to look that way. 

At the end of it all, the main thing is that you are actually learning. If having all the above makes you learn better or somehow retain more information, then keep doing you! This post is just here to let everyone know that if you want to fall into a ‘studyblr’ category, you don’t need to break the bank and spend a fortune on all those things. Your tuition probably already costs enough …

jilliankayleigh  asked:

I am having struggle with focussing on school, due to having ADHD and I don't know how to keep my focus on school anymore :(

I’m so sorry hun :( I don’t suffer with ADHD, but I know what it’s like to struggle with concentration. I’ll try my best to suggest things that could help, some of them work for me so might help you?

First of all, are your school aware of your diagnosis? My situation isn’t exactly the same, but the student support at my school is very helpful in providing support to help me manage. They might be able to offer you some extra. There are plenty of things you can do yourself, but I think letting them know would benefit you a lot.

They might also be able to tell your teachers so they can adapt things for you a little but or give you extra time to help you manage the issues you have with concentrating. In the past, my teachers have given me extra sessions so I can catch up on lessons I missed or lessons I struggled with. Your teachers might also be able to do this for you.

I would recommend keeping a planner for school so you can write everything down and make it easier to visualise in terms of what you have to do. I find this helps me make sure I do the work at home if I don’t manage to do it in school and also helps me to make tasks more manageable by seeing them written down rather than trying to store them all in my head. 

Another thing I would say is to break things down. It’s very easy to look at things too broadly and get overwhelmed by the number of things you have to do or the amount of time you have to spend on it. Taking a big task and turning it in to several smaller tasks is honestly the only way I get things done, I find it extremely difficult to sit down for long periods of time and do school work so instead I do little chunks. This helps me to feel achievement about the little things and put things into perspective a little bit. I sort of get into this mode where I am able to say ‘yeah, I didn’t do everything I needed to, but I did SOMETHING - and that’s great’.

It’s okay to go at your own pace. A slow pace is better than no pace at all. You will get there, it might just take a bit longer and a bit more work. It’s ok to take breaks and it’s ok to ask for help.

I think that’s the most important thing.

You don’t have to struggle on your own. There are people and things that are designed to help. Asking for help is really really scary, but you quickly find that asking for help is much less scary than the alternative. It is much less scary than trying to manage things in your own.

I really hope this helped a little but, and I’m so so sorry if it didn’t. I’m not really the most equipped person to help with any kind of concentration problems but I really wish you the best and hope things get better for you in the future <3

Back for a min, family is eating dinner, figured I’d explain my absence. School starts on Monday for me, and I have one day and a few hours to make so entire portfolio about myself while trying to tell my parents that I’m having mental problems and can’t figure out how to do it, I have to write an entire song for my music class, I have to practice on my guitar again, I have some Science and Family Studies work to do, I think, and I’ve been stressing and crying all day. I’m really sorry for my absence, I’m just really busy right now because I was too depressed all break to do anything…Wish me luck, you guys!!!!

1: “@” people you want to be friends with

5: i think u were supposed to tell me what you’re daring me to do in this one

6: screenshot the first page of your search history

im on mobile but i went to chrome and i couldn’t find my search history.. it’d probably mostly be makeup, school, and skam stuff

10: if you draw or write, show some of your really old work

i don’t do either of these but i probably did a little of both in middle school but i don’t have any of it

anonymous asked:

Lena? Did you get a lot of crap as a woman in STEM? I'm the only girl in my school's engineering track and I have to work two if not three times as hard as the boys do to get the same treatment and opportunities

“I did,” Lena nodded, suddenly feeling a burning passion inside her. “All I can say is: don’t give up. Work as hard as you have to, make those boys weep with how smart and talented you are! And don’t be discouraged when some pasty boy is praised over you, because between you and me-” Lena leaned forward as if she was going to tell the person a secret, “Masculinity is so fragile that most men feel the need to tear us down to make them feel good about themselves; if they try to drag you down, put a smile on your face and shine! Shine so bright they won’t be able to ignore you! Because their whining and criticism of you, it’s not a reflection of your worth, but a reflection of how tiny they are.”

“Keep studying, keep shining, and who knows?” Lena grinned at the girl, “Maybe one day you’ll be working with me.”

When people try to advise me on nutrition I’m like… no offense,but I did not spend all of high school literally starving myself and puking up everything I ate, & then work years to restore a still very shaky and complex relationship with food, only to have some asshole tell me what is and isn’t healthy. I don’t give a FUCK if I’m healthy now, I’m just glad I’m eating, and literally all I’m trying to do is survive day to day however I can. I’m not trying to be healthy, I’m not trying to save the earth, I’m not thinking about my body, I am LITERALLY eating food to survive and trying to think about it as little as possible. I’m not gonna read an ingredient list located conveniently by the calorie and sugar and fat information, I’m not even going to give 1 single glance to that panel. I don’t want to know what’s going into my body, I just want to know that I am consuming literally anything & therefore I’m doing great and I’m proud of myself.
