and the help of a website

  • Enjolras, pulling Grantaire into his lap: This is a move against The Man. Queer couples aren't able to express PDA without fear of retaliation. This isn't because I want to cuddle with Grantaire, this is a move to further The Cause. The fact that Grantaire is wearing my favorite sweater has nothing to do with this. We need to constantly fight our internalized instinct to hide our relationships, and me holding Grantaire in public stems entirely from a desire help normalize queer PDA. Jehan, those photos better be for out website! Why is everyone looking at me like that?

I will delete this later. Consider this a rant (or a cry for help).

I’d like to share with my fellow friends of the environment an issue that is very close to my heart. It has to do with the sea, but this time whales are not involved. This issue is the devastating effect cruise ships have on the city of Venice, Italy. I care deeply about this city and while I see many pictures of it on this website, no one ever talks about the dangers it’s facing. If you are planning on visiting it, or if you are simply interested in getting to know something more about environmental problems in other areas of the world, please take a look at the post I just wrote on this topic.


Thank you

Hi everyone!

I was looking for some simple help for my MaDD research paper for school.

I need a scholarly source, preferably online, about how MaDD physically affects the body. (Pain in legs, dehydration, hunger, hurt ankles, hurt feet, etc.) I was only able to find one article about disturbing the sleep cycle.

A scholarly source is something written by a professional, doctor, professor/teacher or likewise, just not some random person writing on a blog. Usually the websites are .org, .gov, or .edu.

Please message me or comment the link! Thank you in advance to everyone that helps! 💙

People, I’m crying it’s all so beautiful. If any of you are able to visit Rosedale Center in Minnesota please please please go take a look ❤️ This is the kind of things we create at my work place~
These are all projects I worked on either as a graphic artist or welder (or both for the castle!) and I’m proud beyond words of what we managed to do!

As a graphic artist I worked on the castle’s design as well as the ice for the giant card.

As a welder I made the light up ball’s frame, the chandeliers above the castle and helped with the castle tower + arches c:

(Btw all of the photos are from Rosedale Center’s official twitter and website)

i LOVE ur new theme its so rad !!! where do u get ur ideas for the colors u use for ur themes ? i can never find color combinations that look right ):

hey here and here are neat little guides by my friend on how to decorate a theme ! it’s all the little details that go into it that make the overall picture look great. usually i get inspiration from the background/graphics that i use, and i base my palette off that. it’s also helpful to study color theory and the color wheel to see which colors blend well together or which complement each other or which accentuate certain combos or which make the other stand out. it’s worth looking into especially if you’re getting into design. a protip from me is to look at palettes whether on adobe’s website or pinterest or the palette tag on tumblr for some inspiration. hope this was helpful !

anonymous asked:

I remember a while back you had a few posts about applying for the f31. Do you have any tips or resources that helped you out? I couldn’t find any tags on your blog about grants. Thanks so much!!


so after perusing through my swamp-of-a-blog i couldn’t find any posts i had made that specifically talked about the F31 (other than me complaining about it). Or maybe I did on certain aspects but not the whole thing… anyway! so i’m going to make one! just for you anon <3

Here’s the website for NIH’s Application Guide, which includes rules on formatting, how to submit, etc. 

If you scroll down to the orange “F” for “Fellowship Instructions”, there are two PDF instruction manuals based on your planned date of submission (either before Jan 24, 2018 or after Jan 25, 2018, bc they updated a few things). 

Here’s the PDF instruction manual for after Jan 25. Read through everything. I highly recommend making a summary table that lists all the documents you’ll need to write, a short description of what it is, the page limit, who writes it (you, you & PI, PI, co-sponsor, etc), and what page in the instruction manual you can go to for more info. 

Make sure to work closely with your PI, your co-sponsor, and your university grants office. Please note that you do not submit the grant; your university grants office submits it on your behalf. Also in my case, they created the budget sheet. I recommend getting in touch with a rep from the grants office asap, because the internal due date is earlier than the NIH due date (bc the office needs to put everything together, etc). For example, my F31 submission date to my grants office was Dec 4, for the NIH due date of Dec 8. 

Your PI will also need to work on some aspects of the grant with you (such as the Training Plan). Be sure to figure out a battle plan with draft deadlines with them. Same thing with your co-sponsor (if you have one, and it is highly recommended). 

Letters of rec are also required, so be sure to give your writers at least a month to work on these. You may need to provide an outline of what you’d like them to focus on. 

Many aspects of the F31 can come from “boilerplates” forms. These are generic things from your lab that can just be copy&pasted from previous applications, such as descriptions of Equipment, Institutional Environment & Commitment to Training, etc, though I recommend updating and customizing them as you see fit. Check with your PI or program coordinator to see if these are available. 

I recommend finding an example of a funded F31 from a previous lab or program member, and noting the strengths in their application. Keep in mind format and content may have been updated for the current instructions, but some things are still the same. Also it always helps to see what other people have done when tackling something new. 

The entirety of a good F31 will take a few months to write, edit, and finalize (assuming you’ve already done all your culling of scientific info, either experimentally or through literature searches). A semester to one year is what I’ve seen people spend on them. So start early! I recommend setting mini deadlines for yourself, and also scheduling at least an hour or two one day a week just to write/edit, and treat it like a class. Don’t trust yourself to “find the motivation”; discipline is what counts here. 

What makes a good F31

  • Scientifically sound and doable research project. Scientifically sound is self-explanatory (like having all the appropriate controls, etc), but also make sure your project is doable for a PhD student. “Boil the ocean” projects are never funded. 
  • A well-rounded and productive support system. For example, your training goals and your PI’s training plan match, your PI and co-sponsor(s) have productive publication and grant records, your institutions has the necessary facilities and training programs for you to carry out your research and training plan, etc. Be sure to also think about things like career development, grant and manuscript writing workshops, etc. 
  • No contradictions. Meaning you actually worked with your PI and co-sponsor on the grant, because if your PI’s training plan says you’ll be done in 4 years, but your training goal says 5, then that’ll raise eyebrows and indicate a lack of involvement or communication between you and your support system. 
  • Clear, easy to understand writing. Edit edit edit edit edit! Good writing goes a long way. The easier you make the lives of your reviewers, the happier they’ll be, and the happier they are, the more generous their scores. Also don’t make your figure legends/text too small. Keep in mind that a lot of these grant reviewers are older, so anything smaller than 8-pt font may be too hard to read. 
  • A little something extra. F31 reviewers want to see that should you be funded, you’ll get to do something above and beyond what your current stipend allows you to do. For example, visit and train with a collaborator in another part of the country. 

Keep in mind that your F31 proposed project does not necessary have to be your dissertation project to the dot. The scientific community understands that research trajectories change, and no one’s going to check when you graduate if your specific aims are still the same. A previous PhD student in my lab proposed to study ginger in her F31 (which got funded), but her dissertation project had nothing to do with ginger (she switched focus to turmeric). 

Also, don’t do this alone. Your PI and co-sponsor(s) should help you, and so should your program. See what resources they may have first before tackling this project. I also recommend taking a grant writing course (if possible) before doing this, as there are a lot of nitty gritty details that go specifically into grant writing. 

And lastly, a word from someone who’s gone through the process: It’s gonna suck. There will be a point where you’ll get so sick of editing the same paragraph over and over, and every fiber of your being is going to scream for this to be over. But keep at it. Just do one word at a time, one sentence at a time. And sooner or later you will finish, and gain these lovely experience points and feel good about accomplishing such a huge challenge! 

Best of luck! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to come talk to me. Even if it’s to vent (which I’ve done many-a times during this hellish process haha)!

dedeotaku  asked:

the thing is i know some other group who also keep facing the same problem ,it really sucks that people can't just simply follow the rules and they keep wanting to ruin everything for all of us and i seriously don't get what they will gain .hope this private website thing will help with this problem .

i hope so too. finger crossed. sometimes people can’t just listen to others’ request.

anonymous asked:

i hope this doesn’t sound stupid, but how do you deal with the stress in the fandom? i really love exo and especially pcy but all of the arguments between fans is giving me anxiety. i used to enjoy the groups because it helped me escape from my everyday life. there is so much negativity now and i just want people to have fun. :(

oh love I just don’t deal with it at all I don’t really care about fanwars and rumors I try to ignore them all and just enjoy the music and if I get something directed at me trying to start drama I just joke about it bc people really take things overboard and super personally and forget that this is just a website and getting angry at each other will not change a thing in real life so why not just enjoy the groups that we want and live peacefully

dear person reading this:

  • your crooked teeth make your lovely smile extremely cute and endearing  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
  • your splotches of freckles? yeah, those are places where the galaxies whirling inside of you leaked out to radiance their brilliancy into the world
  • your thighs touch? that’s a GOOD thing. you’re getting proper nutrition! you have muscles! d o  n o t  b e  a s h a m e d!!!! also, thigh gaps are awesome too! anything related to thighs is awesome! all thighs are different because every person is different, and honestly, why does it matter what your thighs look like?? people who are bothered by thighs are weak tbh
  • “bingo arms”???? listen up: you only have bingo arms when you’re WINNING. otherwise why would you be yelling “bingo”?? thought so. you’re a winner – you can do anything you set your incredible mind to!
  • your hair is so unbelievably gorgeous and don’t you deny it. don’t forget to style it, dye it, try new shampoos with it, as long as you want to! your hair is your own, whether it be frizzled or dry or thick or thin – be proud of that, and remember that you can always change it up!
  • your eyes are not too small, or too big, or too wide apart, or too ugly. your eyes are your own mortal doorway into your soul, expressing your thoughts and emotions in dazzling swirls and hues for others to decipher. don’t be afraid to cry, don’t be disgusted by the crinkles at the corners when you smile, don’t hate on the small, microscopic blood vessels running through them. don’t lock your door out of needless shame!
  • scars!!! scars are so cool! they’re visual results from a chapter that makes up the story of your life! no matter where scars are, don’t be conscious of concealing them! ppl loVE scars! even the tiny lil ones! anyone who has a scar is automatically known as an ultimate badass sorry that’s the rule
  • same goes for stretch marks! those little ripples on your thighs, your hips, your waist, your belly? those mean that you’ve GROWN. your body has adapted frequently throughout your life, and leaves those little ripples as little hints of your amazing journey from babyhood to adulthood! (or maybe you’re just a mystical ocean god/goddess and those waves are symbols of your enormous power, onlookers should be on the lookout)
  • sorry, did you say you had a pig nose? do you even kNOW how cute piggies are you should be PROUD of your nose cAUSE U CUTE
  • long, thin nose? p l s. that just means you’re king/queen of everything. don’t deny it. you know how powerful you truly are
  • tummy rolls? everyone has them. seriously, no matter how thin a person may seem, tummy rolls are inevitable. you are not alone! tummy rolls rock! ROCK THOSE TUMMY ROLLS!
  • trust me, barely anyone see your feet anyways. besides, feet aren’t that bad – how do you think your hands would look if they walked everywhere over the earth’s rough terrain? feet are hella 
  • ears are so cool omg they’re like fingerprints, unique to you and you only! plus you can pierce them! repeatedly! how cool is that? ears are best
  • do nOT be anxious about flaunting your legs! wear that short skirt! wear those shorts! own that bikini! your legs are marvelous! ppl would kill for a pair of dandy lookin legs like yours! pale or tan, legs are glorious! L E G S
  • lips. lips. do you know how many magic tricks your lips are able to perform? the formation of words, the ability to smile or frown, the ability to express, to kiss, to wear makeup; lips are ethereal and exquisite in all forms!
  • #1 tip: your eyebrows are always on fleek  (▰˘◡˘▰)
  • and lastly: you are not dumb. you are not worthless. you are not a waste of space, an empty void, a meaningless shell. you are loved. you are worth everything. you are so incredibly intelligent, you are utterly unforgettable, and you are breathtaking in every single way.
  • next time you look in a mirror, blow yourself a kiss and don’t worry – you’ll kill it out there today. ♥

you can’t cure mental illness but you CAN treat it, please don’t get caught in the trap of “i’m just this way, i’m a piece of shit, i won’t get better.” positive self talk can help you, even if you don’t believe a word you’re saying at first.

we need to accept and understand mental illness but that doesn’t mean we let it destroy us. please, try to learn positive coping mechanisms. don’t let fear of treatment stop you from getting it entirely.

you deserve happiness and you deserve to be able to live your life.

Yo guys. November’s here and I’m really close to starting up this comic thing. At the moment a friend is helping me  by setting up a proper website for it. So that would be a couple more days. But hey, soon! 

Have a cover in the mean time.

Help out a beautiful artist! (Not me, don’t panic)

Now, I’m not one to promote, and there are other worthy causes, but trust me when I say @modmad deserves it.

If y'all didn’t know, she writes this sweet comic called The Property Of Hate, as seen above. Feel free to google it, there’s even a whole website for it!

Point being, she’s having a kickstarter (here: to print this comic, which would not only be a great thing for us folks who read TPOH, but also a new source of income for @modmad.

Still not convinced? That’s okay, but please reblog so other people can see this. The kickstarter ends on November 8th!

This is no joke everyone…
This is Dolly, a class friend I had only chatted a little in my driving class. She was in class just yesterday on 11/17/2017 at 1:20 pm and left class at 2:30 pm.
Somehow she did not came in class today and this was posted in the school’s website. The office even reported us through the microphone.
I do not care if you don’t live in IL or even in the US, but please share and help us find her. I may barely know anything about her, but I REALLY care about people who I started getting along with.
Please please please. Help me.
