some tips from your local depressed college student
cheap paper towels + hydrogen peroxide = acne treatment (just be careful not to bleach your eyebrows unless you’re into that idk)
use the acne face soap on your chest, upper back, and shoulders instead, since it doesn’t do shit for your face (or at least not mine)
no one is stopping you from bushing your teeth in the shower except yourself (just eliminating that extra step of going to the sink makes it so much easier for me)
did you know you’re actually supposed to put on stick deodorant at night??? It has time to absorb while u sleep or stare at the ceiling in dispair whichever works best for u
carrots and/or apples dipped in peanut butter = dinner (or just plain peanut butter but it helps to get a lil something extra if you can manage it)
if you give yourself an allowance of skip days (i’m talking like 3 or 4 max) then it can be easier to go to class if you remind yourself “i only have 2 skip days left, I’m gonna save them until I REALLY need them” (think of skip days like non-essential items in a video game - you could use them now, but what if you really need them during the final boss battle later on??)
the velveeta microwave dinners aren’t great but they’re cheap and better than some other options out there. the mac n cheese w/ meat ones can smell a bit like dog food but they still taste pretty good
if you like peppermint hot chocolate - save the after dinner mints you get at places like Chik Fil A and italian restaurants and such and then drop a couple in your mug before you put it in the microwave. boom.
if you’ve got a sore throat, just take a spoonful of honey (or squirt it directly from the bottle to your mouth if you’re a heathen like me) and go find a hot drink
for essays - highlight/number/circle/whatever you want to do to make ‘em stand out the quotes you want to use in your paper, then go take a shower or get something to eat or just watch like a 15-20 minute video on YouTube and then come back to your paper, pop those fuckin’ quotes in the right order, and write in the smart bullshit around them
okay actually the one thing that I will spend a little extra money on is cough drops bc i get a sore throat all the damn time and the only kind i will buy anymore is Halls Breezers they taste like candy instead of koala shit my personal favorite is cool berry but the orange creme ones are good too honestly these cough drops have saved my life at least six times now
coffee is gr9 but don’t forget to have some water every day too dehydration is NOT FUN (speaking from very painful personal experience)
My (very random) headcanons for TMNT2012 (made up by me or taken from other versions/fans):
The brothers all have Facebook accounts, have like 5 friends and constantly post inside jokes that April and Casey don’t understand half the time.
Raph is really good at math but it’s never addressed because he’s still way behind Donnie.
Leo is Mr. Perfect at everything except he can’t cook, sing or whistle if it meant saving his life.
April thought them all to drive (Leo was the worst student to work with).
After about a year Chompy grows into the size of a St. Bernard in a span af a few months then stops growing again for a while. Raph still insists he fits on his shoulder.
Leo has accounts on multiple Space Heroes fansites and writes fanfiction - the bad kind, with a lot of cheesy oneliners.
Donnie and Raph are both really good at drawing while the other two aren’t at all despite Mikey liking to draw.
When they were little Mikey and Raph would fight over the night light because Mikey didn’t like the dark but Raph hated the light because it attracted insects.
Leo’s partly at fault for Raph’s bugphobia.
Splinter didn’t think the turt babies were very intelligent until the first one of them spoke.
Raph was the shortest for a really long time.
Casey’s parents are both alive although divorced. He often visits his mom outside the city that’s why he’s not in every disaster episode.
Mikey has a secret notebook for his pranks where he has all of his brothers’ likes, fears and weaknesses documented and it quite freaky how thoroughly analized inside-out he has all of them.
Splinter was depressed at the time of his mutation (the mutation making it only worse) and the baby turts dependence on him was the only thing keeping him from commiting suicide in the first couple years. :(
Donnie was the first one of them who got dead drunk.
Karai (without wanting to) still considers the Shredder as her father more than Splinter.
Mikey doesn’t have to do daily chores around the lair because he’s the family cook.
Donnie hacks into satellites for fun.
Leo took the “pinkies out” to heart and never holds cups differently.
Splinter has been doing the “healing hands” for years on that poor tree to keep it alive with so little sunlight.
Casey has a grandma from former Yugoslavia and he got that čefur[gopnik] in his blood.
Splinter loves Spanish soap operas and with whoop ass if the boys don’t get off the TV when they’re on.
Donnie sometimes runs on coffee alone for days.
Raph has a secret DeviantArt account (and I support him).
The boys decided (with a bit arguing) who’s the youngest to oldest when they were little.
Mikey has ADHD Donnie said so.
Angel makes subtle Shrek puns/jokes around the turtles, mostly Raph.
If there’s no training Leo sleeps until noon.
Splinter didn’t have the white fur from the beggining. It came with years of stress caused by 4 hyperactive boys.
Renet likes to pop up unannouced just so she can eat real 21st century food and not future artificial muck.
Raph has seen himself in eyeliner thanks to April and “spin the bottle.”
Mikey has a layer of soil under his bed from decayed food.
Donnie’s part of a LARPing group at some random kid’s basement.
Raph once had a realization nightmare that Slash might remember everything pre-mutation, and dearly hopes he has no memory of all of his “alone times” in his room.
Karai will one day walk into the lair with bleached eyebrows and no explanation.
We never realized it but Casey’s tooth gap expanded for one more tooth thanks to Raphael.
Shredder loves his dog Hachiko.
April encourages Casey to cheat on exams because he’s a lost cause.
Donnie owns stock and runs a business from his home computer and buys all the food for the family.
Casey is like a dog after taking a bath: fricking terrified until he dives into the nearest (manure) dumpster and gets that familiar smell back.
The boys all have low self asteem due to them being outcasts.
Raph is a whisperer for all animals smaller than him (the horse is proof).
Mikey will eventually rescue another cat and name her Klunk.
When they arrived at the farmhouse for the first time Raph refused to go into the forest/meadow for 3 days because he saw a grasshopper(!!!) in the grass by the porch.
Mikey was super excited about owning chickens and loves petting them.
Leo still gets days when his healed knee hurts too much to support his full weight.
When April grows up she becomes a detective.
Casey’s a garbage collector and still busting heads.
When Raph was 13 he wanted to go to Hot Topic (I’m pretty sure he still does. -The fishnets gave him away.).
In the future the turts all have their own weird bunches of human friends that they hang with sometimes.
I’ll end it here before this gets out of hand! I excluded headcanons about ships, crushes, sexual orientations, etc. to avoid pointless discourse and hate. Don’t mind adding your own headcanons to this post. :)
I not a huge Katy Perry fan but I see that a lot of people have been saying that Katy Perry is racist can you explain why
I sure can
All right here we go, Katy Perry is an appropriative insensitive asshole. She appropriates other cultures in many of her performances and uses Women of Color as props while she does so. It’s super fucked up. Let’s go on a visual tour.
1) Japanese/East Asian appropriation. At the AMAs, Katy Perry performed in this “sexy Geisha” get-up, which is a hyper-sexualized really inaccurate kimono-type… thing… with leg slits and pieces that actually look more Chinese than Japanese. Not that it matter because, like, aren’t they like basically the same thing lol? No. And of course all her backup dancers are dainty East Asian girls in inaccurate makeup, as flowers fall onto their bamboo parasols.
2) Black/African-American appropriation. A live performance where her outfit, inspired by Egyptian symbolism, is not even a problem compared to the horrifying mummy dancers chilling around her. This what what she’s reduced black women’s bodies to. Big asses and huge tits and large mouths and nothing else. Worst of all, those costumes could be worn by anyone. You can’t even see who her dancers are. So there’s probably a bunch of white people in at least some of those costumes. Not that it makes it much worse. Look at this shit.
3) Black/Egyptian appropriation. ANCIENT EGYPTIANS WERE BLACK. Or at the very least, they were pretty dark brown. They weren’t white, at any rate, not that any white historian will readily admit it. It’s gross and racist for white people to dress up like ~Ancient Egyptians~ when most of history has done all it can to erase the fact that ancient Egyptians were black. That’s why all their noses are smashed on the statues we have now. You think it’s because of poor workmanship? It’s not. The workmanship was superb; these statues were meant to last through the afterlife, you know? White archaeologists have destroyed the faces of ridiculously old statues to erase positive blackness from history. It’s fucking racist as shit for her to dress up this way. But wait, look at the second picture. A diamond-studded “grill”. Even better.
4) Black/African American appropriation again. Appropriating Black hairstyles is fucking racist as shit. I’m not explaining why. You should know why. I’ll be very disappointed if someone asks me why. Also, this isn’t racist, but those bleached/shaved/whatever eyebrows? It looks hideous and I’m pretty sure it’s popular because of Iggy Azalea, who is another disgusting racist.
His body emanates its own unique text, regardless of what is said, and it is enough to make one intimidated by the 50-year old Till Lindemann, who gives the impression of having a very strong, powerfully large appearance. He looks like a rock star capable of throwing boulders. Bleached-blond hair, eyebrow piercings. But at second glance, you notice that his body radiates a confident, Baloo-the-Bear-kind of friendliness. And now for the shock of his voice: he does not speak in the somber, forced tone the fans know from stage, but with an unusually gentle, open voice. The most evil voice in rock’n roll could just as easily narrate radio plays for children. Is it clear to him, that he has two, such entirely different, voices? The tolerant interviewee Till Lindemann: “There’s the professional bass. And this is my normal, everyday baritone.”
I just love this description of Tilll especially the Baloo part. He definitely reminds me of a bear but I can’t quite imagine him singing The Bear Necessities.
