Took a little break on these because classes have been busy. Going to try and work through them all though. Prompt post is here.
“The skirt is supposed to be this short.”
Jason looked at where Dick was bent over, adjusting something with his shoes. It was kind of hard to focus on what he was actually doing when Dick’s ass was staring him in the face, barely covered by the royal blue material he was wearing. If Jason looked carefully he could see the shadow of the black briefs Dick was wearing, and really, it was too much.
“Jason,” Dick said as he straightened and sent a glare his way. “Can you stop staring?”
“I’m sorry,” Jason said as he turned away. “I just don’t see why Tim couldn’t do this or something. He’s a little smaller and not that I’m saying that the outfit doesn’t look good on you, it’s just-”
“The skirt is supposed to be this short,” Dick said as he tossed his hair over his shoulder.
The case they were working on required that one of them dressed up. Tim had been chosen first, but then he’d been called away on Titan’s business that Jason was pretty sure didn’t exist. Jason and Bruce were too broad, Damian vehemently refused to dress up like a woman, even when Dick asked him nicely. That left Dick, who had also been working the case and couldn’t say no if this meant a big breakthrough.
Jason had been called in as his date because he’d been out of the spotlight since his death. Hopefully this event wouldn’t put him back under the attention of Gotham’s elite.
It had taken some time on figuring out how to make Dick look like a woman, and in the end Zatanna had done them a favor and if Jason had an issue keeping his eyes off Dick before, it was even harder now. Dick had breasts for christ’s sake, and Jason could have sworn Zatanna made them big to personally spite him.
“Jason,” Dick said again.
“Sorry.” Jason ducked his head and Dick came over. His low neckline was right there and Jason moved his eyes upwards.
“You know,” Dick said as he started tying Jason’s bowtie. “We do have a hotel room, you and I could pop up there if the event gets boring.” He tugged on Jason’s chin until Jason was looking into his heavily made up eyes. “How does that sound?”
Jason grumbled out something about how “that sounds nice or whatever” and Dick released him.
As Dick sauntered away Jason realized Dick was flirting with him. Either that or he was playing a sick prank on Jason. It was hard to tell.
As he straightened his tie and grabbed the car keys, linking arms with Dick, he figured that there would only be one way to find out,
College can be a lot sometimes. Over the past two years I’ve learned some helpful little tricks that help to keep me sane and on top of things, and it’s time I passed them on to all of you! Ahead in part one: scheduling classes, going to them, and homework. Be on the lookout for part two soon!
i. scheduling classes
Take a full load, but keep it balanced.
Don’t schedule all of the tough classes for one semester.
Also try to schedule it so that you will have a variety of homework (ie a mix of writing, tests, and worksheet focused classes)
Always speak to your advisor before scheduling classes.
Keep in mind that you will need time for homework and online classes when making your schedule.
Whether it means choosing not to have classes on certain days, putting a two hour break in between classes, or having all your classes in the afternoon so you can study in the mornings.
Keep in mind your personality when picking times.
8AMs are rough. Unless you are the world’s biggest morning person, avoid them if you can.
Be sure to have a plan for eating meals!
Some schools will let you bring your lunch into class, but I prefer to have a break during lunch so I can relax while I eat.
Look at a map of campus when scheduling and try to schedule classes in the same building back-to-back, or at least near each other.
Never go to class without a bottle of water and a pen.
If it’s a workday and you’re given the option to leave class and work elsewhere, actually use that time to work.
Sit wherever you’re comfortable. A lot of posts say to sit up front, but I personally prefer to sit further back so that I can fidget without worrying about distracting others. Figure out what works for you.
After about the third class, seats might as well be assigned. Don’t move and throw everyone else off unless you really have to.
Always be respectful and kind to your teachers and classmates.
Make at least one friend in every class. You don’t have to be bffs, but chat with the person you sit beside before every class so that you have someone to study or share notes with if you need to.
If you need to fidget to pay attention, consider bringing a small container of Play-Doh with you to lectures (you may want to let your teacher know what’s up, they’ll almost definitly be cool with it).
Unlike high school, you really can’t skip homework. Instead of getting lots of small worksheets, your grade will be decided by a few bigger projects or papers. Try to stay on top of things!
Break larger projects up into smaller deadlines.
If a class has a lot of worksheets as homework, start a study group so that you can all work on them together.
Try to start homework as soon as you get it.
Don’t be afraid to ask from help from teachers, tutors, or classmates.
As soon as you get a syllabus, enter all of the due dates into your planner. If you wanna go the extra mile (hint: you do), go ahead and add in dates to start working on projects, too.
Work ahead so that you have the flexibility to hang out with your friends at the last minute, instead of being stuck in the library working on a project that’s due first thing in the morning.
Never plagiarize. It’s the fastest way to get kicked out of a class, or even a whole program. If you’re not sure if it needs a citation, it needs a citation.
The number one rule is simple: do all your work, and do it the best you can. As long as you follow that, you’ll be golden.
Happy studying, and be on the lookout for part two coming soon!
college advice from someone who’s been on both sides of it
So I’m finishing up my Ph.D. and
preparing to depart for the real world (no, just kidding, I’m going
to be in school forever, only in a different capacity) and I thought I’d
put together a list of some college tips to share with you all. I graduated with
my B.A. in 2012, magna cum laude,
with 2 majors, 1 honours thesis, 2 on-campus jobs, and 3 music things. Since then, I’ve gone to grad school and also
taught six semesters of first-year seminars. Now I’m going on the job
market for teaching positions. All of this means that I’ve seen both
sides of the college experience, as a student and as an instructor. There are a lot of great & useful college advice posts going around studyblr this time of here, and I wanted to add my own. I hope it’s useful. So
here we go, with a “read more” because it’s long (sorry if you’re on mobile):
your classrooms ahead of time (profs’ offices too)
out how long it will take you to walk between places
out where your best seat will be & claim it
to the people next to you, learn their names
notes in class
advantage of extra credit
your best not to fall asleep in class (and if you do fall asleep, apologise to the
your glasses if you need them, don’t be stubborn about it
out the library, wander in the stacks, talk to the librarians
out how & where to print
used books/textbooks, or rent them, but be careful with ebooks (some
profs don’t allow them)
breaks into your class schedule, or block everything together, whichever works best for you
work out the pros &
cons of 8am classes and/or night classes
ahead – have a planner, put things in it, do them
deadlines are a thing (write down earlier deadlines, trick yourself into meeting them, bask in satisfaction)
grades won’t be what they were in high school
keep in mind GPA values: a 3.5 will see you graduating with honours
nice to the departmental administrative staff, thank them for helping
you (even with small things)
hours versus emailing profs: both will get your questions answered (probably) but if you can go and talk in person, do it
& TAs are people too, they have lives, they have bad days
something comes up, talk to your prof, be honest but don’t overshare, just show them you’re trying
Every gay/bi female character on Degrassi has had a bad experience with a guy before dating girls. I’m really hoping that the writers make Rasha a character who hasn’t, because it’s important to break the false stereotypes that women only like women because they’ve been hurt by a man.
