The signs as WTNV proverbs

Aries: “There’s a difference between your, you’re, and yarn. Yarn isn’t even pronounced the same way. It’s a completely different word.”

Taurus: “Knock, knock. Who’s there? Orange. Orange who? Orange you glad I didn’t say your mother’s in the hospital? I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Is there anything I can do? Listen, I’ll drive you over there. We’ll leave right now. Grab a coat, it’s a little cold out. I’m so sorry.”

Cancer: “You won’t sleep when you’re dead, either.”

Leo: “At your smallest components, you are indistinguishable from a forest fire.”

Virgo: “You can’t get blood from a turnip. Listen you need some blood? I can totally get you some blood. Set that turnip down and follow me to the blood. There’s a lot of blood.”

Sagittarius: “Ignore all the haters telling you that everything isn’t a sandwich. Everything is a sandwich.”

Aquarius: “Feeling lost? Like you have no goal in life? Like you’re covered in dirt and wet leaves? Like you’re an earthworm? Are you an earthworm? Kinda sounds like you’re an earthworm, actually.“

Capricorn: “Soccer is also commonly known as football, Canadian baseball, American football, violent jogging, and World War II.”

Gemini: “Everything that happens, happens for a reason. Except ostriches. What the hell, man?

Libra:  “Please keep all arms and legs inside the car at all times. Also, you are under arrest. Why is your car full of limbs? Whose are these?”

Pisces:  “Listen, I’m not a hero. The real heroes are the people that point out to us when protesters have smart phones, thus invalidating all concerns.”

Scorpio: “Thank you for your interest in a life free of pain. We are not accepting applications at this time. Please try again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again…”

Neutron Stars Are Weird!

There, we came right out and said it. They can’t help it; it’s just what happens when you have a star that’s heavier than our sun but as small as a city. Neutron stars give us access to crazy conditions that we can’t study directly on Earth.

Here are five facts about neutron stars that show sometimes they are stranger than science fiction!

1. Neutron stars start their lives with a bang

When a star bigger and more massive than our sun runs out of fuel at the end of its life, its core collapses while the outer layers are blown off in a supernova explosion. What is left behind depends on the mass of the original star. If it’s roughly 7 to 19 times the mass of our sun, we are left with a neutron star. If it started with more than 20 times the mass of our sun, it becomes a black hole.

2. Neutron stars contain the densest material that we can directly observe

While neutron stars’ dark cousins, black holes, might get all the attention, neutron stars are actually the densest material that we can directly observe. Black holes are hidden by their event horizon, so we can’t see what’s going on inside. However, neutron stars don’t have such shielding. To get an idea of how dense they are, one sugar cube of neutron star material would weigh about 1 trillion kilograms (or 1 billion tons) on Earth—about as much as a mountain. That is what happens when you cram a star with up to twice the mass of our sun into a sphere the diameter of a city.

3. Neutron stars can spin as fast as blender blades

Some neutron stars, called pulsars, emit streams of light that we see as flashes because the beams of light sweep in and out of our vision as the star rotates. The fastest known pulsar, named PSR J1748-2446ad, spins 43,000 times every minute. That’s twice as fast as the typical household blender! Over weeks, months or longer, pulsars pulse with more accuracy than an atomic clock, which excites astronomers about the possible applications of measuring the timing of these pulses.

4. Neutron stars are the strongest known magnets

Like many objects in space, including Earth, neutron stars have a magnetic field. While all known neutron stars have magnetic fields billions and trillions of times stronger than Earth’s, a type of neutron star known as a magnetar can have a magnetic field another thousand times stronger. These intense magnetic forces can cause starquakes on the surface of a magnetar, rupturing the star’s crust and producing brilliant flashes of gamma rays so powerful that they have been known to travel thousands of light-years across our Milky Way galaxy, causing measurable changes to Earth’s upper atmosphere.

5. Neutron stars’ pulses were originally thought to be possible alien signals

Beep. Beep. Beep. The discovery of pulsars began with a mystery in 1967 when astronomers picked up very regular radio flashes but couldn’t figure out what was causing them. The early researchers toyed briefly with the idea that it could be a signal from an alien civilization, an explanation that was discarded but lingered in their nickname for the original object—LGM-1, a nod to the “little green men” (it was later renamed PSR B1919+21). Of course, now scientists understand that pulsars are spinning neutron stars sending out light across a broad range of wavelengths that we detect as very regular pulses – but the first detections threw observers for a loop.

The Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) payload that is soon heading to the International Space Station will give astronomers more insight into neutron stars—helping us determine what is under the surface. Also, onboard NICER, the Station Explorer for X-ray Timing and Navigation Technology (SEXTANT) experiment will test the use of pulsars as navigation beacons in space.

Different ways to study

A few of you have been asking about ways to revise (that’s not just making notes). Here’s a list of some different techniques you can use to revise/study:

  • Notes - making notes is the ‘standard’ way of studying - summarising information from textbooks/revision guides into your own words
  • Mind-maps - making these is a great way to organise ideas and link different ideas
  • Posters - big and colourful posters are a great way to summarise info as well as a more fun way of working
  • Teaching - teaching others (anyone who will listen to you will do) is a great way, as it will really show whether you really know the info by how well you can explain it to someone who knows nothing about it
  • Videos - watching videos can be a nice and easy way to revise, and are useful for visual and/or auditory learners
  • Podcasts - you can download and listen to podcasts when you are walking to school etc. which is a great way to get extra revision in, and they’re great for auditory learners
  • Flashcards - these can be useful for making really concise notes, as well as making Q&A or key word and definition cards - they are also really compact so you can take them with you
  • Group study - working with friends can help bounce ideas off each other, bringing up things you might not have thought about alone - you will all have different strengths that will help each other out
  • Past questions - doing past papers and looking at mark schemes will help your timings and application of knowledge/exam technique
  • Write (don’t type) - making notes on tablets/laptops is fine, but when it comes to writing practise essays always write because that’s what you will be doing in the exam (unless you use a laptop for some reason) so it’s best to practise for timings etc.
  • Further reading - reading articles and books around the subject areas will give you a broader idea of the concepts and a better overall understanding
  • Accents/voices - some people find using different accents or characters of voices helps them remember things (in the exam you can recall info because you remember you said it in an Australian accent for example)
  • Key word lists - making lists of words and definitions can be useful, as using key words in context in essays/questions is what gets you the higher marks
  • Post-it notes - writing key ideas on post-it notes and sticking them in places you go commonly (on the fridge, by the light switch, in your bedroom, on the TV etc) 
  • Apps - there are loads of great apps that you can download to make notes and flashcards etc. as well as apps for generally increasing your productivity - see my studying apps post here
  • Songs/mnemonics - making funny little songs to remember processes can be really useful, as they really stick in your head
  • Charts/timelines - depending on the subject, making timelines and charts can be really useful as a different visual representation

hey guys! my last semester of high school starts tomorrow and i thought i could make a quick lil masterpost on how to take on your next semester head-on and how to start off strong.

1. start off organized (whatever organized means to you)

  • one thing i tried this year was keeping a folder for all of my school papers and it helped me a lot instead of just putting my papers in one designated spot like previous years. keeping one folder (or one folder per subject) can help you keep track of all of your papers. 
  • if you need tips on how to stay organized, check out my masterpost here :)

2. try to have a positive mindset

  • although i’m kind of loathing going back to school, you have to try and find the positives in going back! and it doesn’t have to be academic, my positive thought about school is that i’ll get to see my friends and read more cool books for Literature class. if you go into it with a negative mindset, school will be a drag and you won’t do your best.

3. make small progress on any long term assignments at the beginning

  • following this step should help relieve any stress about a long term project, especially one that you know is coming (ex. me with my quarter assignments for literature). making progress can range from starting to read the book early to just writing a sentence a day or somethin’. but you don’t want to get too caught up in this step that you forget about the work that is due the next day, or something of the sort. 

4. *mainly for seniors* if you have anything application related, do it asap.

  • i know that i have my CSF application due some time throughout the second semester and a couple scholarship items to complete, so i’m going to do them either during the break before the next semester or as early as possible in the next semester. doing this is very helpful and will help relieve any anticipation or stress. 

5. detox the weekend before you go back to school

  • personally, i try to refrain from doing anything school-related the weekend before school because you should just relax and prepare by being relaxed. take a bubble bath, watch a movie, hang with some friends, sleep, anything that makes you happy and relaxed. dunno what to do? i have some cute things here in my self care tag.

6. Have fun.

  • have a great time, don’t let school run your whole life.

i know this isn’t much but these are just my own little tips that i thought might help someone else. it sounds a lot like my Staying Organized masterpost, but most of that does overlap here. any masterpost recommendations? let me know and I will definitely take it into consideration.

The area manager

Shane looked at his diary, trying to get an idea of the day he had ahead of him. Sighing, he remembered that he had interviews to conduct for the junior management role in one the patisseries he ran as the area manager. Shane loved his job, but this week had been a nightmare with endless deadlines and meetings. He enjoyed the challenge, but hated when his work schedule interfered with his personal life; especially when his work over spilled into his gym evenings where Shane kept up his powerlifting to maintain his perfectly muscular physique. He had seen many times over what could happen if you didn’t keep up an active exercise regime in this job.

Bon Bon patisserie was a rapidly expanding chain selling sweet and savoury pastries and desserts; specialising in the most delicious and calorific treats on the market. Working for the company was a sweet number as well; excellent pay, great benefits. Shane was always flooded with applications every time a position came up. Unlike most jobs in catering, a position at Bon Bons was fast becoming a job for life for its employees, who all knew they were on to a good thing. Shane felt guilty, remembering that he had just pulled out applications at random this time, he just hadn’t had the time to read them all. The company demanded that he interviewed at least three people, so that was all he had chosen; the three lucky candidates, lining up for their interview as he arrived at the store a couple of hours later.

All three candidates were in their early 20s, attractive and well groomed. However, only two of them were dressed appropriately for the interview. Rachael and Jasmine wore smart clothes and stood up politely to greet and shake Shane’s hand as he introduced himself. The third candidate, Jack, was less prepared. Dressed in low-cut jeans and a t-shirt, Jack was attractive and athletic, getting glances from customers in the store lining up for their pastries. He had a handsome face, short, dark rugged hair and a perfectly toned body under his snug-fitting t shirt. He was clearly a guy who never really struggled for things in life. Jack reminded Shane of himself when he was about 8 years younger, before he took up body building in a big way.

Jack wore a smug look on his face and slouched back in his chair, waving at Shane lazily whilst the two girls stood up to shake his hand professionally. Shane also caught him taking the opportunity to check out the girls’ from behind as they stood up; clearly much more interested in that than the interview he was about to have.

‘Thanks for coming everyone. The interview will only be short as I’m very busy this week. That’s why I’ve asked you all to come at the same time. There are only the three of you being interviewed and I’ll let you choose between you who wants to go first.’

The candidates looked at each other. Jack looked like he could hardly be bothered and so the girls decided between them who would go first, smiling nervously to each other. Shane then led Rachael away to the office at the back of the store for a very brief interview, followed by Jasmine. Finally, in strode Jack, rolling in to the interview chair and spreading his legs out wide like he owned the place.

Shane found the guy’s arrogance somewhat unbelievable. He barely had a noteworthy thing to say throughout the entire interview, looking like he was merely sitting there to pass the time.

‘And finally’ asked Shane, preparing to round off the interview, ‘what positive things did you notice from our staff in the store today that you would be looking to copy were you given this position?’

‘Um…nothing really,’ sighed Jack. ‘The big, fat ass guy on the counter was more interested in the cakes than his customers’ he laughed harshly.

Shane inhaled, trying not to say what he really thought. ‘That big, fat ass guy, as you call him, would be your boss. You’d need to learn a little more respect, you realise?’

‘Sure man, sure’ nodded Jack lethargically.

‘Well, thanks for coming Jack. I’ll let you go back to your coffee and I’ll call you later on to let you know if you’ve been successful.’ Shane shook his hand and watched as Jack left at his own slow pace. It had to have been the worst interview he had ever conducted for the company. He could barely believe it. Rachael and Jasmine on the other hand, were perfect candidates and ticked every box; choosing between them was going to be hard. However, Shane noted with a pang of guilt, whoever he chose was destined to gain a lot of weight working at a patisserie like this. It happened over and over again. Take, Frank, the ‘fat ass’ guy working in this store as manager; he had gained what looked like 50lbs since he started working here three years ago. Get a job at Bon Bon’s and the tasty treats are going to get you eventually. Did those girls really deserve that?

Suddenly, Shane had an idea. Why not give the job to Jack? He was hardly likely to last more than a few months and maybe it would teach him a little bit of humility, gaining a few lbs on what was probably a perfect six pack underneath that t shirt. It would teach the arrogant jerk a lesson to grow a little fatter. Just a few tweaks to the notes Shane had taken during his interview and Shane could easily justify his hiring. He chuckled to himself as he made the arrangements and drove off to his next meeting.

‘How’s the newbie getting on?’ asked Shane a month later to Alec, the store’s manager. ‘He seemed very keen in his interview’ smiled Shane, chuckling to himself.

‘Not great’ huffed Alec. ‘He’s been here three weeks and still needs showing what to do each day. He just can’t be bothered to learn. He also keeps on giving away free food to the hot girls or gay guys that come in here. I’ve had to speak to him more than once.’

Employees at Bon Bon’s were allowed three free pastries per day, which was partly why their weight always sky rocketed when they started working there. A month in and Jack looked no different. No wonder if he was giving them all away. Shane would have to talk to him. Jack was only here to fatten up a bit to teach him a lesson; but it seemed like he couldn’t even do that right.

‘Listen Jack. I’ve heard that you keep giving free food to the attractive customers. I’m afraid the company just doesn’t find that behaviour acceptable or professional. I’ve told Alec that if he catches you doing it again it will have be an instant dismissal. Do I make myself clear?’ said Shane seriously. ‘You can eat here or take your daily allowance home to family, but you must not give it away to customers again’.

‘Fine’, huffed Jack, surrendering to the harsh line. ‘But you should know, Alec eats way more than his daily allowance; I’ve seen him taking a box full of stuff home after a shift.’

‘Well, thanks for telling me Jack. Officially that’s against the rules, you’re right. We’re supposed to dispose of the food that isn’t sold. But, as a company we tend to turn a blind eye to it because we don’t like waste. It saves us money having to dispose of it anyway. Feel free to take a box yourself. I’ll let Alec know I’ve okayed it.’

Jack seemed to perk up at the idea, nodding his head at the thought of free stuff.

‘Have you even tried the food here since you started?’ asked Shane.

‘Nah, I don’t really have a sweet tooth’ admitted Jack.

‘What about the savoury range?’ asked Shane. Jack shook his head. ‘Well, well, we need to change that’ smiled Shane, waving his hand to Alec and ordering one of the tastiest and most calorific cream pastries on their menu. ‘Try that’ he said with a grin. ‘You won’t be disappointed!’

Jack cautiously took a small spoonful and tasted it like it was potentially poisonous. Then suddenly his face relaxed and he smiled, helping himself to a much larger spoonful, nodding keenly.

‘So, no more giving food away?’ asked Shane one last time, watching the fit guy tuck into his fattening feast.

‘No way man’ said Jack in between mouthfuls.

Shane smiled to himself as he saw the beginning of his plan take effect. He could practically hear the buttons bursting off the arrogant jock’s shirt in no time.

‘How’s Jack getting on?’ asked Shane a month later as he popped in to the store.

‘Better’ said Alec. ‘He seems to know what he’s doing now and he’s a bit more enthusiastic about the products when customers ask.’

‘I seem to remember there was an issue with him giving away food to customers?’ enquired Shane, pretending to barely recollect their last conversation.

‘Yeah, that’s stopped now. He has his free portions himself during breaks and helps himself at the end of a shift for the stuff he wants to share with family’

‘Good. I’m pleased to hear that has stopped. It wasn’t a good image for the company, staff giving away free food’ reasoned Shane, whilst scanning the store for a glimpse of Shane to see whether the cocky stud had started to gain at all yet. Sure enough, a few seconds later, out he popped from the back, wiping his mouth on a store napkin. There wasn’t much noticeable change yet, thought Shane with disappointment. But, Jack didn’t sound like he was going to be fired imminently, so maybe there was still time to put a few lbs on him before he moved on. Jack watched him as he wandered about the few tables in the café area, noting with a grin that his ass had a new fullness to it. If anything, it made him look more buff and rugged, but the first few lbs always did that, smirked Shane. No, grinned Shane; ‘wave bye bye to that six pack!’ he thought. It wouldn’t be long now until this arrogant idiot started to fatten up just like every other employee who had been in his overfed shoes. Shane couldn’t wait.

Things had been so busy for Shane over the next four months he rarely had the opportunity to pop in to the store, and when he did, he always seemed to land on the days Jack wasn’t working. Today however, Shane was coming to do a six month review with Jack. Shane could hardly believe that Jack had lasted this long. The shock was almost as great as the first glimpse he got of Jack as he wandered in to the store that day. Jack was standing in front of the counter, his face fuller and plumper and two bulging nipples pressing against his work shirt. Below that was the outline of a round little pot belly that was pushing against the buttons and looming over the guy’s belt. As Jack turned to make coffee, Shane could see that his ass had bloated significantly in the last four months as well, with two large spheres threatening to burst out of his tight work pants. Shane almost felt sorry for him, getting this fat so fast. He estimated that Jack had gained at least 40lbs. Then he brushed it aside and allowed the wave of accomplishment wash over him. Maybe this fatter Jack had learned a lesson by now.

‘Hi, can I just get a coffee please’ he asked Jack after his short wait in the queue.

Jack looked at him and gave him what looked like a flirtatious smile. ‘I can get you anything you want’ smiled Jack, raising an eyebrow as he moved away to make his coffee, exposing his fat chubby ass to Shane once more. ‘Here you go’ he smiled, ‘and if you need anything else, you let me know. My name is Jack.’

Shane couldn’t believe that Jack was flirting with him so obviously. For starters, the arrogant guy had already forgotten Shane, who had interviewed him only six months ago and secondly, he clearly didn’t realise that with a fat little gut like that on him, Shane was way out of his league now. ‘Um, I know who you are Jack. I’m your regional manager, Shane, here for your six month review.’

‘Oh, yes. Sorry!’ blushed Jack. ‘Just ignore me,’ he stuttered, almost embarrassed.

‘So, how do like working here?’ asked Shane simply as he sat Jack down twenty minutes later.

‘I like it’ nodded Jack. ‘It’s a pretty great deal. Free food and good pay. Just a shame that I have to put up with that fat ass over there’ said Jack, nodding towards Alec.

Shane sighed, barely believing that Jack had hardly changed at all in the last six months; despite the good 40lbs of lardy fat that was starting to bloat up his own body. ‘You’re still having problems with Alec?’ he asked.

‘Yeah, he’s always moaning at me for one thing or another. He hates sharing the leftovers at the end of the day. Always yells at me for taking too much home.’

‘These sound fairly trivial matters’ reasoned Shane. If there really were arguments about who got to take the leftovers home, he guessed that Jack was winning, hands down. This greedy porker hadn’t exactly been starving himself.

‘He’s always eating them’ carried on Jack. ‘Look at the lard ass on him!’ he spat, contemptuous towards Alec.

‘Alright, I’ll have a word with him’ consoled Shane, wanting to move onto more important matters.

A few questions later and Shane was wrapping things up. ‘And lastly, I need to ask you how you’re managing your work/life balance. Are you still having time for the things you want to do or are you finding work gets in the way?’

‘Yeah, it’s fine’ said Jack. ‘I’ve started playing soccer Tuesday and Thursday nights at the local club to keep the weight off so I have plenty of time for that.’

‘Good, I’m glad to hear it’ said Shane cheerfully, sending Jack back to his shift, replacing him with Alec, the store manager a few moments later. ‘Still having problems with Jack I hear?’ he asked.

‘Yeah, he’s just not very respectful of me as a manager. He constantly moans when he’s not allowed to take all the left over stock at the end of the day. ‘

‘Yeah, about that…’ started Shane, looking at Jack’s starter belly as he flirted with an attractive girl at the counter. ‘New guidance from head office; they don’t want the managers taking leftover stock home any more. They think it looks bad to staff working below them.’

Alec breathed a disappointed sigh. ‘What about junior managers?’ he asked hopefully, looking across at Jack.

‘They’re still ok’ said Shane, surprised at his easy lie.

‘That’ll make him happy’, spat Alec, still looking across at Jack. ‘Chubby little bastard always wants the lot at the end of the day’.

‘Sorry, I know it sucks. It doesn’t really seem fair does it?’ he smiled, consolingly at Alec. ‘Anyway, back to Jack, I want to shift the rota around so that he is working during our quieter shifts as well. I want him here every Tuesday and Thursday evening so he gets to experience the different pace.’

‘He won’t be happy about that. He’s just started at a soccer club that play on those nights’.

‘Too bad. If he doesn’t like it, he knows where the door is’ announced Shane, making Alec smile believing that Shane was on his side in his petty arguments against Jack.

‘Oh and, before I go. Make sure Jack gets a new uniform. That fat ass of his is going to put the customers off their food before long’.

Shane was sure to make time to check in at least once a month from then on. He delighted as he watched Jack’s small gut bloom into something a lot more noticeable. His belly rounded out beautifully into a soft roll that encased his middle. His ass started to widen and Shane noticed that Jack’s thighs were filling up fast as well. But above all, Shane was most pleased to see Jack’s pretty boy face developing the cutest double chin and chubby cheeks. There was no denying it any more. Jack was very close to being a fat boy; his newly expanded gut, pressing against the large shirt Alec had ordered for him. Jack had been working for the company for almost a year and had easily gained 80lbs by now; much more than regular employees gained in that time. All of it soft looking, blubbery fat that was easily attributable to a high fat and sugar diet, combined with a lack of exercise, thanks to Shane’s interference.

Shane was there that day to introduce the staff to the new coffee machines they were ordering in. The store closed early on Monday evenings so it made it the perfect time for things like this. Alec had left earlier in the day, unwell; Jack had been left to manage the store himself for the last two hours. The boy was certainly learning.

Shane was showing him how to use the machine and now handed it over to Jack to have a go himself, standing back to admire Jack’s broad, overfed ass from behind. Brilliant! He thought to himself, noting its roundness and seemingly perfect softness. For the first time, he felt himself getting hard over Jack, imagining plunging his dick into Jack’s chubby ass and making the fat porker squeal like the overfed pig that he was. The feeling was confusing. He had never been attracted to one of his employees before, certainly not the ones as fat as this. But, Shane realised, feeling hornier and hornier, that were it not for him, Jack would still have the fit, athletic body he had always had. Shane was so consumed by the idea that he didn’t even notice Jack pressing the wrong button on the machine, causing hot coffee to splash all over the pair of them.

The pair yelled and immediately patted down their shirts to avoid the hot coffee burning them, before bursting into laughter at the stupid mistake.

‘Never mind Jack. I have new uniforms in the back of my car we can put on. We can’t go home looking like this.’

Shane removed his shirt and used it to clean up the mess of coffee that had covered the counter. Jack stood there open mouthed at the hot, fit, muscular body that was in front of him. ‘Well, come on Jack, get that shirt off. You can have a fresh one now.’

Jack removed his shirt, not bothering to undo all the buttons, but pulling the whole thing over his head. Shane watched as the first fleshy glimpse of soft belly was revealed, before Shane stood there shirtless, his fat, chubby belly rolling over on to his belt and even bulging around his love handles. His previously toned chest had morphed into a soft pair of full moobs, which were beginning to sag downwards onto his gut, which now protruded beyond his rib cage. Shane’s boner was harder than ever.

Jack surveyed Shane with awe. ‘How come you get to look like that and I just turn into a fat bastard working for this company’ he complained, grabbing a roll of his lard and jiggling it.

‘You want to look like me?’ asked Shane, in the same cocky manner he imagined Jack would have used a year or so ago. He flexed his six pack for emphasis. ‘But then you wouldn’t be able to eat these’ teased Shane, wafting a leftover pastry under Jack’s nose, giggling to himself as he saw Jack swallow the saliva he was building up just smelling the sweet pastry.

‘They’re the reason I’m in this shape’ said Jack, looking down at himself before turning away to clean the coffee machine.

Shane admired the way his thick love handles merged into his wide hips and ass. Before he knew it, he was reaching out, patting Jack on his bulbous ass cheek and teasing ‘It’s not just the pastries’ fault…’ before he swaggered outside to get new shirts from his trunk. ‘You’re an XXL right?’ he asked, throwing a shirt at Jack as he walked back in.

‘No, I wear a large’ said Jack, looking down at his new shirt.

‘No you’re not Jack. Trust me man, you’re an XXL.’

The two men continued the training and cleaned up the mess that had been made. It turned out that Jack really did have some good ideas for the store and for the first time, Shane was genuinely impressed by him. Jack also had a pretty decent sense of humour as well, when you got to know him.

Not long after that, Alec requested a transfer to a new store in the next state. He had met a girl online and was moving away to be with her. Shane was too busy to advertise and fill the vacancy and so Jack naturally stepped up to take the helm temporarily, whilst a part time worker in another store picked up more hours there to cover the shortfall. Shane made sure to keep a keen eye on how Jack was getting on being full time manager, popping in at least once a week to check on him.

‘It’s hard work being the manager’ grumbled Jack, sitting down with Shane after-hours one Monday evening, tucking in to a couple of left over pastries. ‘I appreciate how much Alec used to do now. I actually really miss him.’

‘You’re running this place really well though Jack. You seem like you were born to do it. The company is very impressed with the way you have just stepped in like this. They want to offer you the position permanently.’ Shane was expecting Jack to be delighted but instead he looked disappointed.

‘Well, I guess it makes sense’ he huffed.

‘What’s the matter? I thought you’d be pleased?’

‘I am. It’s just, the managers don’t get to take the leftovers home do they? Alec used to complain about that loads.’

Shane smiled broadly, trying not to laugh. Man, how he loved the fact that this fat boy thought about his stomach before anything else. ‘Oh that!’ he chuckled. ‘No, I made that up when you and Alec kept on arguing about who would take home the leftover stock. You’re fine, you can keep taking it.’

Jack’s face lit up. ‘Phew! That’s a relief!’ he cheered. Then he paused and thought for a moment. ‘I can’t believe you did that for me though, helping me out when I was arguing with Alec over the leftovers.’

Shane tried not to laugh. Poor Jack thought he helped him get the leftovers out of kindness? No, the only reason he had done it was to help grow the fat belly that now sat beautifully in Jack’s lap. ‘Don’t worry about it man. I always help out my favourite employees…’ he smiled with a flirtatious wink at the fat glutton.

A month later it was the Bon Bon’s Christmas function. Staff from all over the area’s franchises got together for one huge night of festivities. The company put on a lavish party and paid for half of the cost of bedrooms in the hotel if staff really wanted to let their hair down and have a good time. Shane had been working and arrived a couple of hours late. He looked around at the large room of overweight staff, dotted occasionally by the odd thin, newly employed members of staff. Jack was sat in the corner, a beer in hand, his legs spread out wide, allowing his fat gut to take centre stage whilst watching the girls dancing on the dance floor. He smiled and waved Shane over when he saw him.

‘About time you got here man’ said Jack, clearly a little tipsy. ‘All these fat girls aren’t really doing it for me.’

Shane laughed. Maybe Jack would never change. ‘I seem to remember you going home a couple of hours early last year with Kelly from the other store,’ smiled Shane.

‘Oh, you noticed huh?’ grinned Jack. ‘Nah, look at her this year. She’s put on a ton of weight. Look at her! She’s got so damn fat!’ he pointed, not realising how obvious he was.

‘Not so fast fat boy!’ teased Shane, patting Jack’s overfed belly. ‘ You must have been at least 90lbs lighter yourself this time last year.’

‘Ha, yeah, you’re right actually. I never weigh myself. I have put on a lot of weight.’

‘Don’t worry about it man,’ consoled Shane. ‘It happens to everyone who works for Bon Bon’s. I give them their job, next thing I know, they’re packing on the weight.’

Jack was looking at Shane in a slightly drunken, horny gaze. Surrounded by a room of fatties, Jack only seemed to have eyes for Shane and his bulging biceps.

‘So did you know that this would happen to me when you gave me the job?’ He grabbed a roll of his fat belly. ‘Did you know I’d get fat like this?’ he grinned, hoping to turn Shane on.

‘Of course I did’ stated Shane, not elaborating.

‘So this is what you do huh? You hire these attractive young people and watch them eat and get fatter. Then you travel around visiting them all, showing off your killer body and turning them on.’ Jack was clearly so horny he was ready to pounce on Shane at any moment. Shane decided to go with it.

‘Pretty much’ he smirked, allowing Jack to see him glancing down at his round belly. ‘See that guy over there’ he pointed suddenly. ‘That’s Gary, a manager from one of our stores.’ Jack looked at the overweight man Shane was pointing to. He was young, perhaps 30, but clearly a very overfed guy, with a huge round belly and wide hips. He probably had another 60lbs on Jack.

‘Yeah, I see him’ said Jack, enjoying the fact that Shane had to move closer to him to be heard above the music.

‘That’s what I’m going to make you look like soon. Probably by this time next year, that’ll be your fat ass waddling about on the dance floor.’

‘You’d like that wouldn’t you?’ smiled Jack, seeing that Shane was getting horny talking about it.

‘Oh yes’ smiled Shane, placing his large hand on Jack’s wide, soft thighs. ‘I can’t wait to see you get like that.’

Without a word, the two boys stood up and made their way to the elevator. They were heading to Shane’s room. Shane opened the door and slapped Jack’s fat ass. ‘Go get yourself ready in there fat boy. I’ll be back in a second.’

By the time Shane got back, Jack was lying naked on his bed, his cock rock hard. His belly was even larger than last time Shane had seen it. His moobs were properly developed now and his gut rolled over on to the bed sheets when he lay on his side. Then Jack rolled over submissively on to his font, revealing his wide, tubby ass for Shane to inspect. ‘You like that?’ he asked, his voice dripping with lust.

Shane removed his clothes immediately and then grabbed a large flat box he had brought up with him from downstairs. He lay himself flat on the bed next to Jack and then, in one fast motion, threw a large cream pastry down on to his cock. ‘Eat it, fatty’ he ordered.

Jack smiled, pulled himself onto all fours and then leaned over Shane, nibbling and licking away at the calorific treat. Shane was in heaven, feeling the greedy fatty sucking and licking away over his cock, whilst he peered down the bed at Jack’s fat gut hanging down and jiggling slightly as he stayed there on all fours. He patted his belly and grabbed a roll of the lard whilst he shouted at Jack ‘Come on! Get it down. Eat it faster fatty!’ Amazingly it seemed to be working as well, as Jack ate and ate furiously. Each time he finished, Shane would throw the next down on to his cock, slap Jack on his fat ass and demand that he get back to it.

Jack finished his fifth cake and Shane could sense that he was starting to slow down. He bounced up off the bed with a speediness that Jack was no longer capable of and moved around to where Jack’s ass still stood, on all fours. Lubricated by the cream, he thrust his cock deeply into Jack’s ass, making him squeal. Then he chuckled to himself as he saw the fat ripple through Jack’s body with each powerful thrust he made, getting closer and closer to coming as he thought to himself of the athletic, toned jerk he had hired and looked down at the greedy pig he was currently fucking. The release was unreal. Shane had never had sex like it.

As he rolled Shane over, he saw that he had come as well whilst he was getting fucked.

‘That was fantastic!’ said Shane. But as he looked down at Jack’s flabby body underneath him he felt his cock already starting to resurrect itself. He reached into the box of pastries once again. ‘Now it’s time for pudding…’

Summary: Tutoring middle schoolers for extra credit, dropping off Will Byers at his house, and helping Jonathan with his car leads to a sweet ending.

Pairing: Jonathan Byers x Reader

Warnings: Fluff!

Word Count: 1447

Senior year was kicking your ass so far; between finals, constant homework, and college applications you barely had time to breathe. As of lately you’ve been slacking in your english class, your grade falling below a C-, something that colleges would not want to see. When you had approached your teacher about extra credit you thought she would toss another book report or packet of grammar lessons at you but to your surprise she gave you a green flyer advertising the need for after school tutoring for Hawkins Middle school. While spending your time after school with middle schoolers wasn’t exactly your deepest desire, it was extra credit and that’s what you needed most. Your first day on the job wasn’t so bad, you had lucked out and got paired up with the young Will Byers. Ever since his incident last year the kid was a little behind on school work, and while the teachers seemed to be a bit more lenient on the boy considering what had happened to him, he still had to stay up to date with the other students. Will was rather quiet much like his older brother Jonathan, someone you had known for as long as you can remember. You didn’t know much about the older boy other than the general things: same grade, same age, kept to himself most of the time, but you never heard anything bad about him.

“Okay, read the full sentence out loud now.” You prompted Will, the two of you seated at a table in the library, textbooks beside you and a worksheet in front of Will to practice on sentence structure. “Doug and Dave washed the car.” He read aloud slowly, his eyes looking up at you. “So what’s the subject of this sentence?” You asked with a raised eyebrow, waiting for him to respond. “Dave and Doug?” He sounded unsure but the reassuring smile on your face made him sound more confident when he repeated his answer. “And the predicate? Remember the predicate is like a verb, it’s an action or state of being.” You remind him, watching him looked back down at the sentence, reading it once more before answering you correctly again, finishing up the rest of the labeling. Once Will’s page was finished you offered him a big grin, your hand reaching out to ruffle his hair proudly. “See? You’re a sentence structuring wiz!” You half shouted, earning a scold from the librarian sorting books near by. Looking over at the clock that hung on the wall it was 4:45pm, normally Joyce was here by 4:30pm on the dot, never late to pick him up. “Maybe she’s running late? Will adds, shrugging his shoulders while he packed up his backpack. “Why don’t you go call someone and see what’s going on okay bud?” You suggest, the young boy nodding his head before walking off to ask the librarian if he could use the phone real quick. You stood at the table, packing up your things as well, racking your brain through all the work you had to get started on when you got home, already dreading it. Will came back over to you, a neutral expression on his face making it hard for you to read the situation. “My mom got stuck at work until closing and Jonathan’s car isn’t starting, would you mind giving me a ride home?” He asked politely just as his mom had instructed him to do. You gave him a nod and motioned for him to follow you out to your car, making sure the young boy had his seat belt on before you threw your car into drive and drove off towards Will’s house.

The Byers’ didn’t live too far from you so you really didn’t mind driving Will home, and if you were being honest Will was a pretty cool kid for being in that annoying young tween age. Your windows were down in your car, the cool fall breeze flowed through the cab of your truck your hair blown back and a soft chill running up your spine but you didn’t mind. You tapped your fingers along the steering wheel to the beat of The Clash’s ever popular Should I Stay Or Should I Go, softly humming along while you continued on your drive, nearly at your destination. “My brother loves this song.” Will told you, his eyes staring out at the passing by trees. “Sounds like your brother has good taste in music.” You laughed, pulling up to Will’s house, spotting the tall Jonathan Byers under the hood of his car. You put your car in park, shutting off the engine before hopping out, Will following suit. “Having some trouble there, grease-monkey?” You grinned, walking towards Jonathan, your arms folded over your chest, Will bolting into his house muttering something about calling Mike. The shaggy haired boy lifted his head from under the hood, managing to bumped it on the way up, making you giggle slightly. Jonathan and you were never really close, always friendly to each other in passing but never prolonged conversations between the two of you, especially outside of school. Jonathan always had a small interest in you, though he would never willingly admit it to himself, how could he be so interested in someone so beautiful who probably wouldn’t even give a outsider like him the time of day. Jonathan rubbed the spot where he had knock his head, rubbing the grease off of his hands with a rag. “Y-yeah, I couldn’t get it to start earlier, which is why I couldn’t pick up Will, and also why you’re here, because you drove him home…But you already knew that, obviously.” The timid boy rambled at you, a soft blush creeping up on his cheeks.

Leaning against the side of the car you gazed back at him, your grin never leaving your face. “Mind if I take a look?” You asked, peering under the hood. “S-sure! I looked around but couldn’t seem to spot something wrong…” He spoke, stepping aside to let you take a look. Your dad has worked down at Hawkins automotive for 15+ years now, so you knew a thing or two about cars thanks to your knowledgeable father. Your eyes roam over the equipment, your body leaning in further to take a closer look at certain areas. Jonathan watched as your trained eyes skimmed over everything, he couldn’t help but take in how lovely you looked; dressed in your dark denim jeans and rust colored flannel, your hair tucked back behind your ears, he was full on ogling at you. Reaching out, your hand fiddled with a wire that was connected to the car’s battery. “There’s your problem, loose wire.” You said with a slight grunt as you leaned in further to tighten it back to the battery. “Easy fix! Keys?” The spectating boy quickly fumbled around in his pockets for his keys before handing them over to you. Opening the driver side door, you bent down to turn the key in the ignition, the car roaring to life successfully. With a beaming smile on your face you stood there looking back at the amazed boy before you. As if Jonathan didn’t already think you were incredible, this was just icing on the cake for him. “W-wow, thank you Y/N…You probably saved me a trip to the shop…Not that that’s a bad thing! Since I know your dad works there and all, but really thank you and thank you for bringing Will home for us, I’m sure my mom will bring over cookies or dinner as a thank you sometime soon.” He chuckled nervously, closing the hood to his car before smoothly leaning against it.

“How about you show me some of your music sometime instead?” You offered up boldly, staring back at the cute boy with pink cheeks. “Will had mentioned that you listen to The Clash, so you must have a half decent taste in music.” A laugh slipping from your smiling lips, Jonathan’s eyes widening in surprise. “Yes! I mean, yeah.” He paused, clearing his throat, trying not to sound too enthusiastic, “That would be great, does tomorrow after school work for you?” He asked, shyly looking away from you, stuffing his hands in his pockets. The smile on your face only became wider, nodding your head in agreement. “Awesome! It’s a date! I mean it’s not a date, just some music and stuff.” He started to ramble again, nerves evident in his voice, making you shake your head and step closer to him. 

“It’s a date.” You cooed, pressing a soft kiss to Jonathan’s red cheek.

Author’s Note: I know this one is a little shorter but I think it turned out nice! Should I do a part 2 where the reader and Jonathan have their date?? Let me know what you guys think and send me some requests if you have any! xx Lexie

Yoongi Scenario: Cold Water.

Request: Hi, so i hope you can do this story for me, i want a yoongi scenario with him being my boyfriend and he helps through depression, like he helps when i have a panic attack or when i feel i can’t breathe.. it’s really angst but i really want this scenario with him. She doesn’t want to burden him but also wants his help and he is very supportive boyfriend. Thank you girls

Genre: Angst / Fluff.


You closed your eyes tightly as another thought came to your mind, like by closing your eyes to the world you could do the same with what happened with the images your brain formed, only that you had to try twice, thrice as hard.

They were like arrows, penetrating your mind with a sharp edge of venom,  they also tended to come without warning, even when you were doing the simplest things such as cooking a meal, while at work or when watching tv with your boyfriend, it didn’t matter where you were or what you were doing, the thoughts came to you making your stomach shrink and suddenly whatever you were doing faded away as you tried to fight back and calm down. 

If you thought that your life didn’t have an accurate course and you were going to end up homeless, then you tried to think that you were doing everything in your power to not end up like that, you worked hard and were cautious, it shouldn’t be like that, even if right now you weren’t doing what you studied for, you told yourself that you would see the end through this and your dreams would be fulfilled. But it wasn’t that easy. 

Because technically your life could go down to shit at any moment.

You closed them tight again and felt a hand intertwine with your fingers to then give it a squeeze. Yoongi slid closer until his nose was brushing your ear, silently he held your hand, letting you feel his body closer. His soft breathing tickled your ear but you didn’t mind, if anything it was relieving, you were there with him, your life wasn’t what your fears pictures it to be.

-Hey- he whispered after some minutes. -Don’t let it get to you- he said before he kissed your cheek, so tenderly like you could disappear if was too rough, Yoongi was so loving it made you want to cry.

You didn’t deserve him, he didn’t deserve this.

Again you closed your eyes and you felt that squeeze in your hand. -You want to share?- he said after another couple of minutes.

-No, I’m ok- you whispered turning to him, giving him a kiss to then accommodated your face at the crook of his neck. 

He just held you close, not insisting or pressing you to talk, Yoongi was gentle like that, your silence wasn’t pregnant with unsaid things, it was if anything reassuring that you could talk whenever you were ready, and that he was going to be there to listen, holding your hand and keeping you close.

-It’s ok if you have some other thing to do Yoongi, I’m fine- it was a bit of a lie but also felt it was unfair to him to be here, even if you wanted him to stay.

You felt him kiss the top of your head. -Nah, I’m free today, let’s take a nap-
That made you smile, the king of napping you’d call him since he’d take a nap literally anywhere, so you snuggled more to him, his presence easing you to sleep.

College WordBank!

There are a lot of words that may seem new and weird throughout college applications, so here is a list of words that I defined in order to help you glide through the application process!

The Basics: Treat Yo Self! (and know the facts!)


1. Undergraduate: An undergraduate student is someone who is obtaining an undergraduate education or degree, such as a Bachelor’s degree.

2. Private University: A Private University is a college that is privately funded. They tend to be smaller than public universities as well.

3. Public University: A Public University is a college that is publicly funded, specifically through the national government. They tend to be larger than private universities.

4. Safety School: When applying to colleges, a safety school is a college where the stats of a typical student admitted is lower than your stats, which indicates that it may be easier for you to get in (since you have higher stats than the average).

5. Target School: A target school is a college where the stats of a typical student admitted is similar to your stats, which indicates that you are the same level as other applicants.

6. Reach School: A reach school is a college where the stats of a typical student admitted is higher than your stats, indicating that it is a more competitive college.

7. College Confidential: A website full of threads and information about college admissions. Although some of the pages found on College Confidential are helpful, there are some things found on this site that may discourage you for no apparent reason, such as “Chance Me” threads. Therefore, I advise you to steer clear of College Confidential and, by all means, do not let it get to your head!

8. “Chance Me’s”: “Chance Me” are threads found online where people write their stats and ask for others to see if they can get accepted to a specific college. I advise you NOT to trust these things, as people online do not know your chances of getting into a specific school.

9. Common App: Also known as the Common Application, the Common App is an application used for undergraduate admissions to a multitude of colleges. A majority of colleges accept the Common App, but I suggest looking in on the ones you want to apply to in order to know for sure.

10. Universal College Application: Similar to the Common App, the Universal College Application is also a site used by many people to send their college applications.

11. SAT II’s: Also known as SAT Subject Tests, the SAT II’s are exams that are taken in specific subject areas, such as Biology, Math I/II, and US History. Many colleges do not require SAT Subject Tests. However, it is important to check and see if some colleges require you to take an SAT Subject Test, or if it is optional. Although it may be optional for the college, it is still your decision if you would like to take this exam or not for admission purposes.

12. Transcript: A report of all the grades you have received in each class that you have taken during high school. Colleges require an official transcript to be sent to the admissions office.

13. Recommendation Letter: A letter that details why you are an excellent fit in said college. These letters usually come from teachers, faculty, coaches, mentors, etc. Recommendation letters should NOT be written by a family member.

14. Personal Statement: A Personal Statement is basically a college essay. Many colleges require you to write at least one, while others require more than one essay.

15. Need Blind Admissions: Need-Blind Admissions is when colleges will decide on your admissions decision without looking at your financial information. To clarify, this means that the college will decide on your admissions decision solely on your application and not on your financial information.

16. Waitlisted: Waitlisted is sort of the middle ground for colleges. When you are waitlisted, it does not mean that you are accepted or rejected. Instead, it means that you are put on a “waiting list” and, if the colleges enrollment numbers from their accepted students are lower than expected, they will accept more people from the waitlist.  

17. Deferred: Deferred is when a college pushes your application to the next filing period. This means that you have not been accepted or rejected yet. Instead, the college has pushed your application in order to review it again and make a final decision. A deferral only happens if you have applied Early Action or Early Decision.

18. Legacy (Applicant): A legacy applicant is someone who is applying to a college that a family member has went to, usually their parents.


Types of Applications (it’s “ED” as one, two, three! Get it!?)


1. ED/Early Decision: A type of application filing period where you are able to apply early, but it is binding. This means that if you are accepted to said college under Early Decision, you are required to go there upon acceptance. Usually, the application deadline is in November and admission decisions are in Mid-December. Something to note about this is that you can apply to only one school with an “Early Decision” (since it is binding), but you can apply to other schools with a different filing period, such as Early Action and Regular Decision.

2. EA/Early Action: A type of application filing period where you are able to apply early, but it is not binding. This means that you are applying earlier than the normal application period and you will NOT be required to go to said college upon acceptance. Similar to ED, Early Action’s deadline is around November, but the admissions decision’s date varies. Unlike the Early Decision, you can apply to as many Early Action’s as you want (unless Single Choice Early Action, more on that below)

3. Single Choice/Restrictive Early Action: This is a type of application filing period where you are only allowed to apply to one Early Action school. However, this means that Single Choice/Restrictive Early Action is still non-binding (not required to go upon acceptance), but you can only apply to one school under Early Action. Similar to ED, you are able to apply to colleges under other types of filing periods, such as Regular Decision.

4. RD/Regular Decision: This is the normal time when applications are due. Regular Decision is the time when most people apply to colleges. The applications are usually due in January and results typically come out in March (although, it may vary depending on the college). Regular Decisions are non-binding and you can apply to as many as you want.

5. Rolling Admissions: This is a type of application filing period when you apply to a college and the college admissions office reviews them as they receive the applications. Unlike ED/EA/RD, Rolling Admissions does not have a set date where you can go and look for your college admissions decision. Typically, the college will give you a time frame in which they will give you your admission decision, which is possibly around 2-8 weeks depending on the college. Something to note is that a lot of colleges with Rolling Admissions may not have a distinct deadline for the application, but they will have a “priority deadline” where, if you submit your application before that date, then they will get back to you sooner. Overall, the earlier you submit your application for Rolling Admissions, the quicker you will know your decision.

6. Open Admission: This is a type of application filing where colleges accept all students, as long as they have completed high school or have a GED.


Financial Aid: Dolla Dolla Bills Y'All!


1. Grant: A grant is money that you receive in your financial aid packet that you will NOT have to pay back.

2. Loan: A loan is money that you receive in your financial aid packet and, if you accept, will have to pay back.

3. Scholarships: A scholarship is money earned due to certain achievements, such as academic, athletic, etc. Similar to a grant, it is money given to you that you do not need to pay back. However, for a scholarship, it may be awarded by the college or awarded separately by applying for one.

4. FAFSA: Also known as the “Free Application for Federal Student Aid”, the FAFSA is a website that most colleges will advise you to use in order to receive financial aid from colleges. The FAFSA application will ask for information on your household’s tax forms in order to determine how much grant and loan money you may receive. The FAFSA application opens on January 1st of every year, but deadlines for completing the application varies for every college. Something to note is that you will need to apply for Financial Aid every year in order to receive aid while you are in college.

5. CSS Profile: Also known as the “College Scholarship Service Profile”, the CSS Profile is found on the College Board website where you apply in order to receive more financial aid. Many colleges require the CSS Profile (and sometimes early on), so I advise you to see if it is required.

6. Expected Family Contribution (EFC): This is a number found on your FAFSA that provides an estimate of the amount of money your family will be expected to pay for your education. To note, this estimate is the amount of money you will be expected to pay after financial aid is accounted for.

7. Institutional Grant: An institutional grant is money given by the college that you do not have to pay back. This is different compared to the federal grant, since the federal grant is provided by the government instead of the college itself.

8. Merit-Based Grants: These are grants that are made due to academic achievement.

9. Need-Based Grants: These grants are given to students due to their level of income.

10. Federal Pell Grant: This grant is money that the federal government gives you that you will NOT pay back.

11. Institutional Loans: An institutional loan is money given by the college that you have to pay back. This is different than the federal loans, since the federal loans are provided by the government instead of the college itself.

12. Direct Subsidized Loan: A loan is money that you receive in your financial aid packet and, if you accept, will have to pay back to the college. The Direct Subsidized Loan is a federal loan that pays the loan’s interest while you are in college. However, once your undergraduate education is completed, you will be required to start paying the Direct Subsidized Loan (Note: this loan allows a six month grace period before you starting paying).

13. Direct Unsubsidized Loan: A loan is money that you receive in your financial aid packet and, if you accept, will have to pay back to the college. The Direct Unsubsidized Loan is a federal loan that does not pay the loan’s interest while you are in college. This means that, as you continue through college, you are responsible for paying the loan’s interest. However, if you decide you don’t want to pay the loan’s interest while in college, then the interest will be added to the principal (or the original loan’s amount).

14. Perkins Loan: The Perkins Loan is given to students depending on their school, as some schools do not participate in the Perkins Loan. Similar to all loans, it is money borrowed now that must be paid back later. However, unlike the other loans stated here, this loan is a college issued loan instead of a federal loan, meaning that the money is paid back to the college not the government.

15. (Parent) PLUS Loan: A PLUS Loan is a loan taken out on the parents name for an undergraduate student. This means that parents with undergraduate students may use this money for college expenses. PLUS Loans are to be paid back to the federal government.

16. Work Study Program: The Work Study Program is one in which a student may hold a job on campus while earning their degree/education. You can apply for the Work Study Program through the FAFSA application. The money you earn from this job can be used on anything, from tuition to food, etc.


You’re In College! Now what… (Everything you need to know while in college)


1. Major: A specific area that an undergraduate student focuses on during college. The student must follow and complete the courses stated in their specified major in order to receive their degree.  

2. Minor: Although it is not required, some undergraduate students choose a minor in order to have a secondary focus. If you choose to minor, you do not receive another degree. Instead, minoring in something during college is solely for your own personal interest and to expand your knowledge.

3. Double Major: When you double major in something it means that you are following two specified areas. Double Majors receive two degrees for the areas in which they studied.

4. Undeclared: To be undeclared in college is to not choose a major/degree. Many people go into college undeclared, while some are even undeclared up until their second year of college. However, depending on your college, there may be a specific time or deadline to declare a major, since you will eventually be required to have one in order to obtain a degree.

5. Placement Test: A placement test is a preliminary test in order to see what level you are in specific subjects. These are normally taken when you have selected a college to attend (as an entering college freshman) and must register for classes. Also, something to note, all colleges do not have placement tests.

6. Bursar Office: The Bursar Office is the branch of the college that takes care of payments and billing statements for the student.

7. Financial Aid Office: The Financial Aid Office is the branch of the college that takes care of the financial aid aspect for the student, such as determining grant money.

8. Registrar: The Registrar Office is where they handle student records and scheduling for the college.

9. Commuting/Commuter: A commuter is a student who travels to college from where they reside. This is a longer distance than the typical five minutes off campus.

10. Transfer Student: A transfer student is someone who is changing from one college to another. Most people who change colleges decide once they know that their credits will transfer to the next college.

👻🔮Spirit Adoption: What to do and what not to do 🔮👻

As we all know I’m an intern at Etheric Connections Spirit Adoption shop here on tumblr. I’ve literally been here for not even a week and I’ve seen so many things of what not to do and I feel I should address if here on my main blog.

DONTS:

Don’t Believe that all spirits will be just like you and have your same beliefs.

Don’t Press for an answer to a question when the admin/mod tell you that it’s personal to the spirit and should only be shared with their future companion. It’s disrespectful to the spirit and rude to the shop.

Don’t ask if the minimum age be changed just because in a few months you’ll be the age required. If we let you slide then we have to let others slide too. It’s for the safety of not only the spirit but of the companion too. It may also have to do with a spirits background. Again this is rude to be doing to any shop.

Don’t leave questions on your application blank. Also don’t leave your answers one sentence long. If there is a requirement for how you fill out the adoption form then please follow it.

Don’t submit an application form on anon, even if you give contact information. Many mods are not comfortable emailing, texting or calling a person who was not willing to give up their blog name. Some shops may just delete the form all together and some spirits may just ignore it.

Don’t trust a shop selling spirit children under the age of 16. If they are doing that please question about the child’s family and where they are. Especially when there is no age range on who can adopt them.

Don’t get upset because a spirit did not chose you as it’s companion.

Don’t ask when the spirit will chose their companion. It stresses out the spirit and its pretty rude to be rushing a process that should take five days at least.

Don’t ask a spirit if you have a shot at being their companion. Again this stresses them out.

Don’t apply for a spirit if you don’t feel called or “feel like the two of you would get along”. That’s not a valid answer to a calling and we’d need more detail to it.

Don’t trust a shop “adopting” out spirits for a price. That’s not Adoption that’s purchasing. The process may be the same but it’s not.

Don’t: go to a shop that gives you bad vibes, 9/10 you’ll see some really sketchy stuff when they answer questions or put of applications.

Don’t adopt spirits from Mods who give you a bad vibe. Again this is the same as the one above.

This is all the DONTS I can think of. If you have any more please add them.

DOS
Do be kind to the Mods and spirits up. Even if you don’t feel a calling to them.

Do reblog a spirits bio so others can get word that it’s up. Even if you don’t feel called. A signal boost for that spirit will help.

Do read the blogs description, FQA, about me page, etc before asking a question about the shop.

Do send asks to Spirits and Mods. We enjoy them if they’re not mean or hateful.

Do join the spirit adoption shops discord server or chatroom to learn more about them.

Do take the time to learn as much about the spirit you applied for before they get to chose their companion. The more you talk with them the closer you get to them.

Do add detail to your form when you fill it out. The more detail the better the spirit gets to know you as a person and will make choosing a companion easier for them.

Do include your age and name in your application form, this helps the mod and spirit understand who the spirit will be going to.

Do try to fill out one application at a time. If you feel called please apply but if you apply for too many spirits you may get chosen by all of them and that alone can be stressful on you and the spirits.

Do have a plan on how big you want your spirit family to be.

Do take into account some spirits don’t like certain living animals or moving around. Those are some very important questions to ask.

Do love your companions with all your heart and care for them,

STUDY TIPS

1)  Memorise all the information.

2) Write out equations/reactions to memorise on post-it notes and stick it in the wall of your study desk. This way, whenever you need it and have yet to memorise it, you can refer to it easily and try refreshing your memory by memorising it as and when.  (Laziness to take your books out won’t be an excuse anymore.)

3) Memorise your solubility tables by writing them out and regurgitating. There’s no running away from this. The solubility tables are needed everywhere.

CATEGORISING CHAPTERS IN EXAM PAPERS

(big chapters for more marks )

  • Electrolysis (pretty easy once you practice a few times, application heavy)
  • Organic Chemistry (lots of practice, application heavy) 
  • Metals

(pure memory chapters, like study and vomit entirely (almost))

  • Air and Atmosphere
  • Haber Process
  • Metals
  • Chemical Bonding

ANSWERING TIPS

1) Questions largely answered with keywords only

Do practice questions. When you mark them and do corrections, just underline/highlight the keywords. Take note of the order of the keywords and the type of keywords used for each type of question & topic.

(These type of questions are standard, so grab those marks first. Use pure memory and a little understanding to answer the questions using keywords.)

Chapters with these kind of questions:

  • chemical bonding (super easy chapter to score in)
  • organic chemistry (memorising all chemical equations and conditions, reagents, etc.)
  • air and atmosphere (free marks!)
  • metals (all reactions, reactivity series, blast furnace)
  • electrolysis (standard way of answering, use practice questions as notes for learning how to answer them)
  • mole concept 
  • QA (memorise it!)
  • Speed of Reaction 

2) MCQ (how to break them down):

  • write the chemical formula and state for all substances (for the states, you have to use your solubility table)
  • write out ALL chemical equations where there are reactions. ALWAYS.
  • draw out all diagrams when they talk about atoms & molecules involved (SUPER IMPT!!)

Note: MCQ tips can be applied to Paper 2 questions.

3) Topics to link together for MCQs in general:

  • solubility
  • every single type of reaction
  • mole concept
  • chemical bonding*
  • density and Mr*
  • organic chemistry*
  • electrolysis*


*common topics that are kinda heavily tested

SOURCES TO EXPLOIT

1) The textbook! You need to do a lot of memory work for chapters like metals, by the way. (When you study metals, just memorise nearly everything from the textbook and you’ll ace the chapter!)2) Other school’s exam papers + TYS (duh)

FIN    

(If you have any questions, you can drop me an ask :) I hope this helped!)
