  • michael crying because he cant afford 2 dye his hair every two months
  • luke eating pot noodles for like three months in a row
  • yall not meeting in a cute coffe because they r super overpriced
  • ashton probably not not being an art major bc he looks like someone who wants money
  • calum asking for tit pics from every girl in his classes
  • everyone stressed out a lot
  • everyone wrapping dishes in pvc film so they dont have 2 wash them
  • luke buying 24 rolls of toilet paper bc they were on sale
  • calum using axe

1. Delete his number. You know who I’m talking about.

2. Don’t spend your days thinking about someone who doesn’t even spend a second of their days thinking about you.

3. Buy more underwear. There will be weeks in which you won’t bother to wash your clothes and you’ll re-wear them all, but you’ll never have to re-wear your underwear.

4. Except for bras. Don’t buy bras for that reason. Buy cute bras because they make you feel and look sexy as hell and wear them as many days in a row as you want.

5. Honesty is always, always, the best policy.

6. Whenever you go shopping, keep in mind that your clothing size does not define you. Buy what fits you, regardless of the size. You will always look better.

7. Never go to sleep angry. Even if you get into a huge fight with your mother, your father, your siblings or your best friend, always tell them that you love them before you go to sleep.

8. Don’t feel guilty about any of your pleasures.

9. It’s fine to be a sexual person. But don’t ever, ever, do things that make you uncomfortable just to appease a guy. If he makes you feel bad for not sending him that picture, or for not doing something, he’s not worth it.

10. Speaking of pictures, be careful with them. If you can’t resist sending a nude picture, at least keep your face private. Even if it’s someone you trust, you don’t know what might happen in the future.

11. Figure out what makes you happy. If you have no idea, try everything and anything. Even if you know what makes you happy, try everything and anything anyways. You won’t be sorry.

12. If you’re feeling depressed or anxious, don’t feel uncomfortable talking to someone about it, whether it be a family member, a friend, a doctor, or a therapist. What you’re experiencing is real, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, you deserve to feel better.

13. Be kind to yourself. You spend 24 hours, 7 days a week with yourself, and enjoying your own company will make all the difference.

Review of OTRA Singapore

So, while this was my first OTRA show, I was fortunate enough to go to 7 WWA shows. And since they are so similar I feel okay with comparing them.

(I was also first row so I saw tons of interactions)


1. Louis & Liam joked around the ENTIRE time
2. Louis seemed a lot more just confident
3. Everyone was dancing and smiling whenever I looked over at them
4. Same typical speeches but that’s okay
5. You could feel the energy of them loving what they do

In the past I only felt the energy from Harry and Liam, and sometimes Niall. But I still felt like they were just doing their job, a job they didn’t love & wishing they were else where. But tonight they really proved how much they love their job.

I don’t know if it’s the longer breaks, the “breakup rumors”, the warm weather or what. But I hope they continue to be this happy and carefree.

I’ve participated in (and won) NaNo the past two years in a row. Now just days away from my third attempt, I’ve been reflecting on the lessons I learned in 2012 and 2013. Some of these are serious, others not so much, but I hope you guys will find them as helpful as I have.

10 Things I’ve Learned from NaNoWriMo:

1. There’s a fine line between determination and masochism. If this is your first time doing NaNo, you’re about to learn that lesson the hard way. ;)

2. Tell anyone and everyone that you’ll be participating. Not just for practical reasons (like not wanting to worry them when you drop off the face of the earth), but to keep yourself accountable as well.

3. Contractions are evil. Not that I’m suggesting anyone pad their word count, but the occasional “you are” instead of “you’re” never hurt anyone, did it? Besides, you’ll fix all that in edits anyway.

4. No matter how much you try to explain what you’re doing or why it’s important to you, there are certain people who just won’t get it. They will try to distract you, take it personally when you don’t have time for them, even act out in dramatic ways to get your attention. Ignore them. This is your time.

5. Take care of yourself. NaNoWriMo might make your free time nonexistent, but trust me – you’ll get a lot more writing done if you eat regularly and get plenty of sleep. If you have to sacrifice anything, let it be the nonessentials. Stuff your queue and take a break from Tumblr. Postpone watching your favorite shows if you must. But please make your physical well-being a priority.

6. Writer’s block is probably going to happen. If it does, don’t panic. The worst thing you can do is put even more pressure on yourself. Ignore encroaching deadlines and step away for a few minutes. Get yourself a snack, take a short walk, have a nap if exhaustion is weighing you down. If you still feel stuck, make a playlist of songs you strongly associate with your story. Relax, close your eyes, and focus on the music while thinking about what’s really important. Not word counts or deadlines, but what this story means to you and why you wanted to write it in the first place.

Of course you want to win NaNo. We all do. But what matters most is the story you have to tell. Don’t lose sight of that in a mad race to the finish line.

7. Don’t sabotage yourself with negative thoughts. Feel like everything you’re writing is crap? Well, maybe it is, but you know what? It doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you finish it. Everything else can be fixed in edits and rewrites, which you’ll be able to do at your leisure when November is over.

8. Have a support system. Find at least one friend or family member who gets what this NaNoWriMo thing is all about, and don’t be afraid to reach out to them when you need it. Writing might be a solitary activity, but few of us can stick with it without a little help.

If you don’t have anyone you can talk to (or just need extra support), please feel free to send me an ask. You’re also welcome to add me on Twitter or if you like.

9. In the end, there’s no secret formula, no shortcuts, no easy way to meet your goal. The only trick is to keep writing.

10. No matter what, the time you spend on NaNoWriMo is worthwhile. As much as I hope you win, hope you’ll experience the exhilaration and sense of accomplishment that comes along with that, the fact remains that all writing endeavors are trial and error. The key to success isn’t getting it right the first time, the second, or even the tenth. What makes you successful is refusing to give up.

If you don’t reach your goal, try to figure out why it didn’t work this time. Wrong story? Too many distractions? Lack of confidence? Whatever the reason, try not to see it as a failure. Use it to gain a better understanding of what you need to work on so you can give it another go next year.

I’ll tell you now though: all of you are already winners in my eyes. It takes a lot of guts to tackle such a huge challenge – that alone sets you apart from countless people who talk about wanting to write and never actually do so.

Give yourselves credit for that, because you are amazing.

The thing that helps with my fanbase is that I was a fan; like I would wait at gigs at 2 o clock in the afternoon, 7 hours before the doors would open just so I could get front row… like, I was a proper fan and I know as a fan what I would’ve wanted. It takes 10 minutes of my time to make their day. Most of these fans will only ever meet me once and if i’m a prick to them, for the rest of their lives they’re gonna be like ‘oh yeah, I met ed sheeran, he was a prick.’ If you’re having a bad day and you wanna complain and you wanna scream at people and you wanna smash things up, do it in the car or do it when the doors close… but as soon as you step out in front of a fanbase, just be nice. It takes no time to be nice; it takes more effort to be a prick.
—  Ed Sheeran on meeting his fans

Person B has to go on a trip somewhere & asks their good friend Person A to watch their house. So Person A ends up house sitting for person B, but A forgot their clothes so they spend the whole time wearing B’s. B comes home early & sees A in their clothes and think it’s the cutest thing ever. Bonus: person A is smaller than B. Bonus 2: they end up dating after that.

1. Use a planner

Make lists of what needs to be done each day and plan out what you’re doing. This gives you greater control over your assignments and prevents that frantic scrambling around the night before something is due. This also means you’ll make less of a mess when looking for the things you need, because you have time to put them back in their place.

2. Find a note taking system and stick with it

If you type your notes, pick one word template and stick to it. If you want, you could change it up for each subject, but I prefer to keep all my notes the same. This also makes it more pleasing to study several different notes in a row, because I feel like it goes together.

If you hand write your notes, figure out how you want to make titles, subtitles, indents, highlights etc and stick with it. Your notes will look more uniform and more organised. 

3. Filing papers

Especially if you are taking longer courses, this is super important. You want to be able to reference the material that your teacher gives you. The way I prefer to deal with printed material is putting it in binders. They allow efficient storage, and you can easily pull one out and flick through the pages in it.

I recommend using dividers to separate the documents in the binders, but it’s up to you wether you want to sort them by chapters or by types of documents (’notes’, ‘assignments’, ‘tests’ etc) or in some other way entirely. 

4. Filing files

Now a days a lot of information is simply stored on our computers and never even printed. Why should your computer be any less organised than your binders? It shouldn’t. By creating a separate ‘school’ folder on your computer and organising that like you would printed information in binders, you can make it much more efficient when you need to access that information. 

We all tend to slack on this aspect, but doing a cleanup every few months (your downloads folder gets messy especially fast) is a good way to get everything organised and also free up space on your computer. 

5. Keep up, but adapt

At the beginning of the school year we all promised that THIS YEAR we’ll put up with those systems we’ve made for ourselves. Most of us never do it. Getting into a habit of cleaning out your download folder every now and then, or your backpack, filing things in their proper places and all, can really help maximise your efficiency. Just write a little note to yourself to remind you and maybe give yourself a treat for it. 

However, while it’s important to work to keep up with your system, the system should be helping you, not draining you. If something isn’t working, change it. A lot of time time we draw inspiration from the internet and what we see others do, but that doesn’t always work for us. Organisation is a personal thing, and we all need to work to find a system that suits just us. 

hey yo woah !! here are some more kaya scodelario rp icons bc she’s an absolute beauty !! i take no credit for the images, as i’ve only re-sized & added a psd/border to them !! btw these are generally from kaya’s personal photos, candids, & movie/tv roles !! a like or reblog would be appreciated beebs !!

Through the Window (Part 2)

TTW Masterlist for all other parts

(Seeing as I said Tuesday and Friday, you can have another part today, as it is Friday. Two in a row, how excited! After this the proper schedule will start)

“Well you better get your act together. If you fuck up our lit presentation later I am going to remove your kidneys and sell them on the black market.” Bucky shoots at you, one eyebrow raised. When you don’t respond he nudges you with his arm. “Seriously what’s up? Are you thinking about him again?”

“I’m fine, I won’t fuck up our presentation don’t worry.” You insist, forcing a smile on your face. “Hurry up or we’ll be late.”

The pair of you make small talk, you trying to pretend that you’re fine, Bucky realising and pretending everything is normal. Bucky was good with talking but he was also good with silence. He knew when not to push things and when to force you to vocalise your feelings. No matter what was upsetting you, he always had a way of making you feel better.

You make it through first and second period with minimal effort, walking to meet Bucky by your locker during your break before third period in which you were doing your presentation. He is already waiting, leaning back against the lockers, one leg bent with his foot pushed up against the lockers behind him. His arms are crossed and there is a dark brooding look on his face which you know isn’t anything deeper than a way to prevent people attempting to make meaningless conversation with him. This point proven when as soon as his eyes meet yours his face lights up, a grin spreading from ear to ear.

“Nat asked me out again today.” Bucky says when you make your way to him.

“Again? Man how many times is that now?” You reply, gently nudging him aside with your hip so you can get to your locker.

“I make it about seven. Obviously she just can’t resist me and my devilishly handsome good looks.”

The Maine is FINALLY nominated for 2 AP Awards.

It takes literally 2 seconds to vote for these awards so I’m sending out a call out to every single person who thinks the boys deserve the recognition they deserve. 

Not to mention one of the awards is for most dedicated fans, AND I’m pretty sure the 8123 fam’s got it in them to take that one home with ease. After all, we did get them to have the number one album 13 months in a row.


The Maine is nominated for Most Dedicated Fanbase and Album Of The Year for American Candy.

GO VOTE. And reblog once you do.

Have you worked at a corner store? I do.

Allow me to bless you with some examples of how beautiful and kind these customers can be!

One morning when I was counting the smokes, one of our regulars came in for his usual grab. Now, this guy is a massive flirt and isn’t afraid to bring up his latest cancer treatment to guilt the staff into not ratting out his inappropriate comments. But on this fateful morning some months ago, he crossed the line.

I was counting the rows on the lowest shelf and as a result had to kneel to see them, and this guy comes in, is the only one in the store, and shouts at me: “You don’t need to get on your knees for me, darling, I like your tits more.” So without even getting up or turning to look at him, I replied: “The security cameras record audio as well, sir.” He doesn’t come in much anymore.

We have pre-made candy bags for $2, $3, $4, and $5- it’s candy inside a sandwich bag inside a brown paper bag. The point of these is to make it easy for someone to pay the desired amount, get variety, and all without any effort at all. Except this one dude. He likes to stand outside our store and sell dope to people. Because of this, he feels entitled to the store and has even claimed he’s the sole reason for many of our customers.

So Captain Cannabis likes the $5 grab bags, except he doesn’t like sour candy. He knows full well all the grab bags have sour candy. SO HE RIPS EACH AND EVERY ONE OPEN AND DIGS THROUGH TO MAKE SURE HE GETS THE ONE WITH THE LEAST SOUR CANDY. Us staff and our boss have all explained to him exactly why he can’t do this and why he’s supposed to pay for the 6-18 candy bags he’s ruined that we now need to throw out. This makes him mad. This makes him hold up the line so he can tell us why he’s so important and why we need to make candy bags that he likes.

This happens several times a week. Clearly he isn’t smoking enough joints.

We have an, uh, interesting family who lives near the store. They’re interesting because they don’t believe in bathing.

No seriously, they think washing your hair and body and brushing your teeth is bad for you. This wouldn’t bother us and the customers so much if they didn’t smell so bad. Now, I’m not one to criticize people based on looks, but when your hair is so greasy it can’t even knot and you smell like dead salmon after the spawning run, you need to shower. When your 10 year old has false teeth because they never brushed them, YOU NEED TO BRUSH YOUR TEETH.

They’re actually really lovely people, but I’ve had to mop up vomit because the stench made someone sick once.

This lady came in once and wanted to buy 10 cherry Popsicles, which came to be around 13 dollars as they were a bit over $1 each. She was horrified and very, very angered by this, and demanded that I change the price, to which I had to explain that I don’t have the ability to change prices of items. “I bought these for THIRTY CENTS EACH just last night,” she said. “I’ve worked here for a year and they’ve always been the same price,” I said. “You’re just trying to rob me!” she said, so I showed her my monitor as proof that I wasn’t lying. She then threw them on the counter and stormed out, leaving me to handle the five other customers who were waiting. ANd her 10 melting popsicles.

And hose are just a few of the ones I can think of off the top of my head. If you’re sitting there shaking your head thinking that I’m lying my ass off, I have something very urgent to tell you: you are almost definitely exactly like one of these people.
