psa for the yoi fandom: russian names & how to use them

Russian guides: masterpost | patronyms | terms of affection | answered asks

I’m going to start by swearing this isn’t me just complaining but a general resource for the Yuri on Ice fandom because I’ve noticed some mistakes in the naming conventions used among the fandom and want to help correct them. Especially in how the fandom treats diminutives. I absolutely love seeing the huge amount of interest in Russian diminutives, etc. in fanart and fics and hopefully this breakdown will help continue that trend and interest and even spur some more ideas in fandom content.

So let’s go through some important details below the cut!

Tips for Seniors/Juniors in High School (Plan on Going to College) College Admissions Advice #1

So when I was a Junior/Senior i remember freaking out about what college I wanted to go to and what I wanted to be and whatever

NOW I know I want to be an educator and help teens through this time because I remember how stressful this process was.

So here’s a 10 Tip thread I made for Jr/Seniors in HS who plan on applying to college

Look first of all, let me just say a disclaimer: I am not a college admissions person, this was just my experience with the California’s college application system.

So in my experience: I had the luxury of applying to 10 colleges (8 pub, 2 Priv) all in California #blessfeewaivers

The schools I applied to all ranged from prestigious to average but most of them happened to be my safety schools.

I wanted to point this out bc that was one of the things you SHOULDN’T DO when applying to college.

  1. Don’t doubt yourself

When applying to college, many people get too caught up on rankings and whether they can get in the college or not.

And I was the same way. I even made a list

<

p>When I was applying to college the main factors I looked for in a school were:

  1. Prestige
  2. Size of school
  3. Weather
  4. WOKE OR NOT
  5. Difficulty to get in
  6. How far was it from home
  7. Etc

So make a list of what you want in a college. Especially if you want to dorm. You know what you want whether it be a school by the beach, or a school in a large city etc

Colleges won’t fit everything on your list, but if they do, congratulations you have found your dream school.

  1. Apply to dream schools even if your dream school is insane to get into or it’s far away or whatever, apply to it!!

DREAM SCHOOLS DO NOT HAVE TO BE THE BEST SCHOOLS, THEY ARE NOT SYNONYMOUS ALTHOUGH THEY SOMETIMES CAN BE

Your dream school is the place you feel like you’d flourish AND fits the criteria you have set for yourself

Nobody should ever make you feel ashamed of your dream school because in the end if you get in you’ll be happy

Also, apply to places even if you doubt you’ll get in. They may not be your dream school but they might turn out to be.

You’ll have a better chance of getting in if you apply compared to the literal 0 chance you’ll have if you don’t apply.

Just have the guts to apply to your “dream school” or a school you really like aight.

But also realize that if you’re applying to less that 5 schools, then maybe you should consider some safety schools.

  1. Apply to safety schools but not too many like me :)))))

These schools are not even schools that are low in “ranking” They are just schools you wouldn’t mind going to but the point is you’ll def get in.

  1. Apply to schools you feel are what you want without focusing on your major too much

Be aware that yes your major might “matter” but apply to places that interest you as a whole. Your major might change. Your school, probably not.

And know what your comfortable with. Personally, I wanted to go to a school close enough to come home on then weekends but still be able to dorm.

  1. Apply to private schools if you fit any of these 1. You got a dank scholarship 2. You’re not planning on dorming 3. Dream school 4. You’re rich 5. You got a fee waiver and why not

Private schools can be fucking expensive. They are smaller and have a “better quality education” but know that price is the main factor.

Many private schools in Cali offer really good education such as Stanford and USC

But unless they offer you a private school education at a public school price they can put you into some serious debt

Many of them also offer very little financial aid but do give out substantial scholarships. I was offered a $26,000 scholarship to a $65,000 school ???

So unless you have a fee waiver, applying to one of those schools and doing the work for it may not be all it’s cracked up to be in the end.

  1. Work on your personal statement EARLY ASF

THE BIGGEST THING WHEN APPLYING TO COLLEGE IS THE PERSONAL STATEMENT SO IF YOU STRESS OUT ABOUT ANYTHING IT SHOULD BE THIS

Your personal statement is the only place in your college application that you can bluntly state: “IVE STRUGGLED IN LIFE PLEASE ACCEPT ME”

Depending on your past you either dread writing about you or you have nothing to write about.

But seriously start early. And if you don’t know where to start, just free write.

I had a dream and the following day I wrote about that shit and I actually used it in my essay. (As a metaphor)

  1. Apply to Financial Aid and Look & apply for scholarships!

My decision on the school I finally chose had SOO much to do with financial aid.

Some schools sometimes will offer you little to no financial aid and if your a broke bitch like me you’re counting on that financial aid

If paying for college is a factor in your decision plan ahead, like start now.

Career Centers are your holy grail when talking about financial aid and colleges in general.

Look for scholarships to apply to ahead of time and get all the shit you need in order for you to submit them. (Letters of Recs)

Speaking of Letters of Rec, if you are planning on applying to a private school, most likely they will ask you for 2 or more letters of rec

So… 8. Make a Bragging Sheet

A bragging sheet is like a resume but for high school. Make a google doc and put down EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE IN HS OR ANYTHING THAT IS WORTHY OF MENTIONING

For example - Associative Student Body 2020-2024 - (Leadership Role: if any) [And then put a brief description of what y'all do but in a profesional manner]

My teacher made me do this after I asked him to write me a letter of rec and it helped me sooo much bc

  1. This helps bc it will give your teachers (those who will write your letter or rec) something to say about you in their letter.

And make sure to give it to every teacher/ counselor that way they know exactly what they should put in your LetOfRec

  1. If you’re a person who has done a lot of activities in HS, this will help bc most applications will ask you what you’ve done

  2. Scholarships ask you what activities you’ve done in HS and you’ll have them all written down on this doc and all you have to do is copy it

It honestly comes in handy guys and it’s really easy to make. Google Bragging Sheet/Letter for more info about how to set it up

  1. Do test scores matter when applying to college? ACT? SAT? AP? Answer: Yes and No

AP scores only matter if the schools you’re applying to actually give you credit for the test you’ve passed

However, if you are planning to go to a UC, AP English Scores are SUPER IMPORTANT so pass them at least with a 3. Or retake them if you can.

AP scores are also important depending on your major. If you are heading towards a STEM major they can help you gain credit in that area.

As for SAT and ACT scores, they matter depending on the school you’re applying to.

Applying to a more prestigious school, and having a better test score puts you at a greater advantage

But there are many cases where people get accepted to their dream school having really good curricular activities and average test scores

  1. Don’t stess too much

The actual college application is fairly easy to navigate. Especially the UC app. But do not wait until the last day!!!

For a couple of years now the website to submit your application will crash the day the app is due so try to finish it at least two days before

But if you do your bragging sheet, those applications will be so easy bc all you have to do is copy and paste what you already have.

Colleges want to see that you saw high school as a 3 sided Pie Chart filling in Academics, Sports, and Extracurriculars

They want to see that even if you didn’t play sports, you excelled in academics or vice versa.

  1. In the end, any school is going to help you get to where you want to go as long as you also put in the effort to make your dreams happen.

Maybe some schools will get you there faster but how would I know, I’m barely starting that path myself lol

Edit: I’m so happy you all have found this post enlightening!! It makes me really happy to have passed on some of my wisdom. Go check out the rest of my posts if you want more detailed info and if you have any questions feel free to ask!!!

You ever sit and think how weird it is that Ace is the mature one. I know what you’re think. What? Nicole shut the fuck up about One Piece for once. Sorry???? I just thought about this the other day and couldn’t stop thinking about it since.

No but listen. None of these boys really got to stay children. Ace, Sabo and Luffy lived in hard environments where they had to grow up and take care of themselves and each other. That doesn’t mean they do not let themselves be childish, Luffy especially. But do you ever think how much Sabo is like Luffy but Ace doesn’t act much like his brothers. At least not as much as Sabo and Luffy act like one another. 

I think it all has to do with Sabo’s “death”. In the long run not much changed for Luffy. He learned the hard lesson of losing someone he held very dear but he was able to move on. That’s just how Luffy is, he doesn’t hold on to things and lets them fester.

Luffy and Sabo had people looking out for them in a way Ace didn’t have, not really. Dadan cared about her boys but she didn’t exactly do her best. She did what she needed to in order to keep her boys alive and left the rest up to them. Garp was never around and when he was he did nothing but pummel the kids, calling it “training”. Makino taught Ace but she lived, what we assume to be, hours away and her visits were a rare treat. 

Sabo had a lot more then both Luffy and Ace. His life was in no way made easier, growing up to be a trained soldier of the Revolutionaries but he had a lot of help. He had a proper roof over his head, was being fed, there were other kids to interact with. People were not only teaching him to fight but giving him educational lessons as well. 

Luffy had to be a little more self reliant because all he really had was Ace. Like I said Dadan did the bare minimum, Garp was too absent and Makino couldn’t be there for him like she was when he lived in Foosha. What he did have was an older brother for forced himself to “grow up”.

Ace lost the first person he had ever had such a close relationship with. And shortly after he had almost lost Luffy due to a careless action he made. So I think that really gave Ace clarity and a drive. I totally believe he grew up trying to be the brother Ace thought Sabo was in their group. Sabo was in no way “better” then Ace. He was reckless, rude, crude and has as much of a knack for trouble as Ace did. But he though through things more.

Sabo had more of a “proper” education leading up to the point he ran away so as a result he knew more things about the world outside their forest than Ace did. That made him the “smart” one. He has a slightly less volatile temper then Ace when made him seem more level headed and kinder. So I believe Ace used his idea of Sabo as his model growing up. It’s not really unusual to idealize someone after they’ve died after all. 

So Ace grew into an adult he thought he should be. He learned manners and learned to keep a better lid on his temperament. He grew to value the lives of the people around him and grew protective because in a moment they could be whisked away. 

All three of these boys are GIANT dorks, there are no two ways about it. It’s just one of them appears to have matured more then the others. In a matter of opinion of course. I just see all these fanfictions where Sabo is the mature responsible one and Ace has more of his characteristics he did as a child. And I can’t help but feel it’s a little unfair to Ace who grew a whole hell of a lot.

hmm, headcanon that Donut was the first person that Church came out as Bi to at blood gulch and for a while Donut was the only person who knew and understood. Hence one of the reasons why Church liked Donut so much and their friendship was surprisingly really nice tm

I have seen a lot of funny “draw your squad/OTPs/OCs” so I decided to contribute to it! Also, I’m kind of upset that there isn’t enough of silly demon/human in the “draw your/the _______” community. Or maybe there is and I haven’t look hard enough for them lol.

Anyway, feel free to use/refrence it! Just credit me when you post it on Tumblr! If you’re posting it on DeviantArt, mention @JankedArtist so I can see it on DA too!
