but i need to make money first

If you can.

Hey all, this is going to be the last time (hopefully ever) I need to make this plea. I have gained good employment, unfortunately my first check doesn’t come in this week until two days after my rent is due and I’m just barely short.

I’ve got some awesome things up in the shop right now and would love for you to give a look! There is jewelry and art perfect as gifts for yourself or others and if you order something I will load up your package with lots of goodies!

Anything helps, especially boosts! So please feel free to spread this around. I greatly appreciate it.

hey……hey comcast and all yall running this shitty net neutrality thing….

Now, I know it’s hard, to stop being shitty for at least 1 minute, but hear me out

Did you KNOW? Some people, and this is gonna blow your mind, some people CAN’T LEAVE THEIR HOMES???

It could be for physical or mental reasons, it may not even be that at all

But here’s a list of things you will be taking away from people because you need more cash:

Online Schooling (This includes the kids you claim to be so worried about)

Online Work (This isn’t just for you artists doing commissions out there, there are many types of work you can do online.)

Applying for Applications online (which, if you DO get to go out, you know everyone will tell you to just apply online

Grocery Shopping (Yes! People use online services to go grocery shopping sometimes, sometimes they have to shop like that ALL THE TIME)

Contacting Loved Ones (1.Some of us out here have to make a choice on whether we get internet or phone, if you were home schooled like I was and poor, internet comes first over phone. So…yknow…internet would be a means of contacting loved ones without a phone. 2. Did you know if you do not have time on your phone, but you have wifi, you can contact your families still depending on the phone? If you have access to things like facebook, email, or some sort of social media on your phone, and wifi, you will be able to use those things depending on the phone.) 

Like, I’m not sure if you believe threatening people who really need access to the internet is going to make them pay more? But let me be the first to tell you, fear isnt going to change the amount of money in our pockets. If it did, I’d be rich. 

Buy Fenty Beauty.

Three things I absolutely do not give a fuck about:

1) Rihanna
2) Makeup
3) Rihanna again

But like, I wanna go buy some of her foundation just so she can make more money than Kylie Jenner. Clearly, this is the celebrity beauty brand that needs to be marching toward $1 billion in sales, not another 98% plastic, Black dick-snatching, appropriating-ass Jendashian making bags of money based on name recognition and selfie-lighting.

Rihanna worked on this line for two whole years and came out with 40 shades of foundation on her first try y'all. As one of the white girls in one beauty video said: What were the other makeup brands doing for all this time?

Oh, I know. Ignoring the dark-skinned girls. Putting out 2 shades to go from cinnamon to ebony but 10 shades to go from alabaster to ecru. That’s what they were doing, and now everybody from Loreal to Marc Jacobs to Kylie herself is on Instagram this week pimping out brown skin pretending to care about women darker than a paper bag because Rihanna came in and captured the eye of a market share that is woefully under-served.

Major win for Rihanna. I ain’t gon’ say nothing bad about her dancing or her voice til at least Thanksgiving. She’s earned a reprieve.

hey guys! as you know, my country (Mexico) is going through a really hard time and help is being needed more and more, it’s getting worse

I feel so frustrated because I can’t help as much as I want, all I can do is share information but I feel like it’s not enough. I can’t go to help because I have been feeling sick lately and far from helping is hinder everyone’s work, my family doesn’t have enough money and resources to donate so I’m asking for your help today

I have been researching all morning and this is what I’m going to do:

Please donate anything you can to my paypal, with the money I can gather I will buy medicine, medical stuff (it’s really needed right now) and food, I’ll send it to a reliable place with people I fully trust from my old high school. I don’t know if you’ve heard or seen but our own shitty government is stealing the donatives to redistribute them for political campaigns so we can’t even trust them.

I will take photo proof of everything, the purchases so you can see the money is fully destined to it; if you’ve been following me for awhile you know I wouldn’t lie about this or make a fraud, it’s the first time ever I ask for your help and I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t so necessary

this is my paypal: allthxtmattersx@hotmail.com or paypal.me/tahyungs

please don’t ignore this, even if you can’t help please reblog this, that helps me a lot 💖

guys if you donate just 1 or 2 dollars that’d be amazing, I promise you it will make a difference. 1 dollar is around 20 pesos, if I can collect 100 or 200 we will save so many lives

hi your andriel 'I hate Neil Josten and his pretty face' headcanon is beautiful and pure and wholesome and has healed my soul and i was hoping you'd be open to expanding on Neil's 'revenge' calling out Andrew and being dorky in the process?

Hi! Sorry for the late reply! Thank you so much and, sure, here you go!

  • Andrew is waiting for it
  • he knows Josten’s too much of an actual child to let go of the video
    • no matter that he solved the coming-out problem

MAKE UP TIPS 💋

Hi y'all, so I’ve been doing make up for years for proms and weddings and engagement photos and such and thought I would offer some tips because I love make up and maybe not everyone knows these! Obvi keep in mind everyone is different and these may not work for you…

- Try Nivea’s Sensitive Post Shave Balm for Men as a primer. A little goes a long way and rub it in until it gets tacky

- There is literally no reason to buy mascara from high end brands and I’m a high end whore. My favorite is the Clump Crusher water resistant

- If you can’t decide between two foundation colors, choose the one that’s lighter. Bronzer can fix that shit quick

- The “buy concealer that is 56 shades too light” trend needs to die. One or two shades is plentyyyyy you don’t wanna look like a reverse raccoon and flash photography only makes it worse

- BAKE your under eyes and if you’re hoeing tbh bake your entire face. Message me if you don’t know what baking is

- Two best foundations I’ve ever used are the Too Faced Born This Way and Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24hr

- Stop applying your make up with your hands ladies pls buy a beauty blender and get it damp

- Take the foundation off your lips once you’ve set it bc if you just put lip product over it it’ll bunch up in the corners of your mouth

- Sigma has great brushes and shed less than any of my high end brushes. I’d definitely recommend splurging and getting a full set of them

- Do not base your purchases off of sellout YouTubers that are getting paid to say everything they’re saying

- Buy a setting spray and spray your eyeshadow brush w it before applying shimmery eye shadows and spray your whole face with it when you’re done

- I see girls on here all the time saying not to wear falsies which I think is absolutely insane but my falsies advice is start with individuals and work up to strips. That’s what I did

- Exfoliate your face and use the Biore black head strips on your nose for smoother make up application

- Don’t leave your lower lash line bare. I see this so much and it’s super weird looking. Do a little eyeshadow and mascara at the least to complete the whole look

- Avoid matte lipstick/liquid lips unless you’re sure your lips are smooth hydrated and snatched otherwise they will look like a butthole in 15 minutes

- W/ eyebrows and make up: less is more girl. ESPECIALLY from a man’s perspective

- If you’re going to put a base shadow down before doing your eyeshadow look (which I’d recommend), avoid putting it anywhere you’ll put shimmer and instead fill that space with a cream eyeshadow or more primer to make that shimmer popppp
- Wash your beauty blender every time you use it or it will grow mold I promise

- Buxom’s lip glosses are the absolute best. They are so high quality, smell good, last FOREVER, and tingle on your lips like mint

- Clean your make up brushes as often as you can (I wish I did more than I do) not only because it’s hygienic but because they will apply SO MUCH BETTER

- If your eyebrows are always rubbing off, invest in a waterproofing liquid to put over them. NYX has a cheap one that really works

- Make sure to go over the line of your falsies with black eyeliner to hide the glue. I don’t care if the glue is “clear” or “black” it’s visible

- If you can’t find a contour color that’s cool toned enough try an eyeshadow!

- Put tons of highlight on your cupid’s bow it’s so cute in my opinion and always gets lots of compliments

- TAKE YOUR MAKE UP OFF EVERY NIGHT. DO NOT SAVE YOUR MAKE UP FOR THE NEXT DAY. Some girls will fight me on this but imo no make up is cuter than gross make up and it’s so bad for your skin

- If your eyes are always watering your shit off get some anti-allergy or anti-dryness (whichever you think you have) eye drops

- You can exfoliate your lips before lipstick application easily with honey and sugar. Do this before putting on foundation and such. If you’re a bougie bitch you can buy scrubs from places like Lush

- I’m convinced that Burts Bees is the only chapstick I’ve ever used that didn’t make me end up needing chapstick more than I did in the first place

- If you don’t have time to wash off your make up then just use a make up wipe! The Kirkland brand ones are my all time faves because they don’t sting my eyes or leave a residue on my face

- Stop over washing your face. It makes it produce more oil to compensate and it could be why you have acne

- You don’t need to pay to get your brows waxed/threaded if you just pluck the spare 2 or 3 brows that grow out of place each day. You’ll keep your shape, save money, and your brows will always look good

- If you don’t use eyeshadow primer please buy some and watch your entire eyeshadow collection transform. If you can’t afford it but have concealer that’s second best and still works well

I could go on forever and might make a part two but I’m tired now. Probably going to make a make up favorites list by product category soon!

Message me with any make up questions ever because I love blabbing about it! Spread the luv and happy face beating!! 💄

What You Couldn’t, Shouldn’t, and Don’t Need to Know Before Becoming a Sugar Baby...(and What You Do Need to Know!)

Girl. Let me just tell you I might don’t make it with this post (and if “I might don’t make it” isn’t a phrase you use in everyday conversation no matter your mood I encourage you to try it. It is the kind of phrase you don’t need to understand-but I know your beautiful black ass does- and that immediately makes you laugh). I’ve been working like crazy on The New Money Girls. Can you believe it’s going to out in the world in a little over two weeks? I’m planning on having a Beyonce and white wine spritzer party again on release day. Yes, if you were wondering, I will spam @lustington and @brownstatuesquesugarbaby with video again. 

This week, I want to talk to my sisters and best friends entering the bowl for the first time or after a hiatus. I remember the first (and second) time I entered the bowl. I remember the uncertainty. Hell, I remember the first time I went freestyling. I wasn’t new to sugaring but I was still almost paralyzed with fear. I would like to say to you all of the things someone would have said to me because I love you and if I can ease your mind even a fraction then everything I’ve revealed about my journey is worth it.

What You Couldn’t Know

You can’t know the future. I know that, intellectually, you are aware of this. But it’s a problem, isn’t it? Not knowing whether we are going to be successful in a new endeavor is an excellent way to keep us from doing new things. It is the impetus we need to find a different way, a safer way to try and meet our goals. While I want you to protect yourself and be concerned with your safety, in fact, I want it to be your number one priority, I don’t want you to play it safe because safe often equates to lazy and afraid. What am I really trying to say? Best friend, the thing that I’m always trying to say. GET OFF SUGAR BABY SITES. Would life be easier if you could just have a straightforward conversation with a POT about allowances and how much he’s willing to give you? Yes. It would. But you’re capping your potential.

Think about it. You are limiting yourself to men who have a) heard of sugar baby websites, b) are comfortable admitting they are sugar daddies, c) can weed through all of the messages they receive each day (we outnumber them I think 6 to 1 on the sites) and compete with women who are probably accepting less than you. You are also opening yourself up to the frustrating process of weeding through men who just don’t want you because of the color of your skin. 

My best experiences in this bowl have been with men that would argue you to death about why they are not sugar daddies. They are just men taking care of the woman they are interested in. And you know what? That’s just fine because, to be honest, sis, you aren’t looking for a sugar daddy. You are looking for a man with money who is willing to help you accomplish your goals. Let me say that again because I really want you to get it. You are NOT looking for a sugar daddy. You are looking for a man with money who is willing to help you accomplish your goals. 

Take a deep breath of relief because you already know men. You have already interacted with them. You have already dated, fucked and sucked men (or maybe you haven’t. Maybe I’m the only wild girl out here). You are not changing what you do. You are changing who you do it for. I’m going to repeat that again too. You are not changing what you do (dating). You are changing who you do it for (no more broke boys). That’s all sugaring is: deciding that your time is too valuable to give to men who can’t compensate you for your effort financially.

Does that mean you need to have an allowance? No. I’ve watched my sugar sisters finesse men out of hundreds of dollars, thousands actually, not because they have an allowance but because they have a connection and when you have a connection a man has a reason to take care of you. 

What You Shouldn’t Know

What other girls think of you, whether they approve. Are you being safe? Are you comfortable with your decisions, what you’re offering, and what you’re receiving? Good. That’s all that matters. Sugaring is about stepping stones. You will probably not land a whale on your first go round. That’s okay. You probably don’t want to because you’re going to do what I did and fuck this sugaring thing up six different ways from Sunday. Do you want to do that with a man that makes more money than your mind can even conceive of? The answer is no, in case you’re wondering. 

You’ll look back on your sugar journey and realize that you have incrementally improved the caliber of men that you are with. You will find that the more comfortable with who you are as a sex worker the more you get. You will notice that you still make mistakes but it’s easier to recover or let that man walk out of your life. You will also realize that it’s more important to meet your goals than it is to get the approval of internet strangers. If you have questions and after doing the extensive research you still don’t have an answer, it is perfectly okay to message a sugar sister and ask for help. But do you need them to approve a man, an allowance, an arrangement? No. And if it doesn’t feel good to you, if you’re in doubt, don’t bother messaging someone. Get out. You don’t have to do anything that makes you uncomfortable. Ever. Sugar on your terms or don’t do it at all.

What You Don’t Need to Know

What you’re going to say or do in every possible scenario when you go freestyling (because dammit best friend you’re going to get out and freestyle even if I have to talk about it until I’m blue in the face). Do you know what having pre-prepared responses is? Scriptwriting. Do you know what the problem with having a script is? They only work if the other person knows their lines. When you enter this here sugar bowl, I want you to be yourself. I know everyone talks about having a sugar persona, hell, I even allude to the idea of having one, but what I really want is you to decide who your most confident, natural self is and to be that woman because again you’re not changing what you do. You’re just changing who you do it for. 

What Do You Need to Know

This is easy and important: you need to know who you are and where your boundaries lie. If you don’t know, please, believe me, the sugaring world will teach you quickly, aggressively, and painfully. If you aren’t sure who you are let me get you started because I know. We are best friends after all.

  1. You are not desperate for money. I don’t care if you’re down to your last $100 and rent is due (I’ve been there) you aren’t desperate for a man or money. You attract good fortune and opportunities no matter where you are or what you do because you’re a hard working bitch that doesn’t take no for an answer and refuses to be satisfied with anything but the life she wants.
  2. You are a woman with goals. Even if that goal is just to get a new pair of shoes, you have a goal
  3. You are a woman that is unafraid to open her mouth and ask for what she wants. 
  4. You are a woman that gets what she wants because she works hard for it.
  5. You are a woman that works hard.
  6. You are a woman that can say no and watch a man walk out of your life because you know another is coming. 

Your boundaries do not have to make sense to anyone but you. Only want to see a man on Mondays because every other day is unlucky? I ain’t judging. Get those Monday dates and that Monday money. The point is to feel safe and comfortable with who you are and how you’re moving in these sugar streets. Fuck what anyone else thinks.

We’re here again, sis. This is the time when you tell me whether you agree, I forgot to add something to the list, or you think you might don’t make it because this whole post was ridiculous and wrong. Let’s chat in the comments, boo. And a big thank you to everyone that has commented or messaged me this week. I loved reading every single thing you sent me and I love you. Every black ass thing about you.

I don’t understaaand ya’ll

 There is a very very very easy way to avoid getting scammed by these salty guys.

 Get. The. Fucking. Money. First.

 You want to make sure he’s serious?

 Get the money first.

 You want to be sure you’re time is being spent meaningfully? 

 Get the money first.

 You want to scare off these salts who see ‘girls asking questions’ as a red flag?

 Get the money first.

  The scammers even say it themselves ‘don’t fuck with pros’, ‘don’t fuck with girls who ask for an initial gift, you won’t get anything for free from them’.

 It is KNOWN.

  And then, once you have got this in your head, you can’t just say YO WHERES THE CASH in your first message this isn’t Sims, this is a game of chess- who’s the best bullshitter? It needs to be you.

 You have to FINESSE the money outta them.

 ‘Hey, I want you to know I expect a gift from you on our first date so I know you’re serious’.

 Yeah. You’re not getting nothing with that bee sting of a message, you sound like his wife. ‘I expect’, ‘I want’, ‘serious’. All these words are very scary to these fragile little babies and it’ll scare the digits right out of your hands.

 ‘So baby, guess who’s feeling lucky right about now? What’s on the menu for tonight? I’m feeling steak for some reason. Goodbye diet! Hope I still look sexy for you ;) I’m so ready to be pampered tonight, maybe you could bring a little something for me to make me smile? Just bring what you think I’m worth- but don’t be cheeky! :p Should I send you a picture of the heels I’m wearing? Hope you like xxx’

  Paraphrase it, create your own details, whatever it doesn’t matter, but this is the formula.

 It is dead easy to separate the wheat from the chaff and there will be a lot of fucking chaff.

 Oh by the way, I feel like this is important to mention:

 Get the money first.

Amazon is a fucking liar, and you have half a mind to sue them for putting wrong information on their website. What they listed as ‘discreet packaging’ ended up being a clear, see-through bag with no sort of protective wrapping at all, and you’re fuming.

anonymous asked:

So could you do the rest of the phanthom thieves reacting to their S/O getting sent to the hospital? i really liked your yusuke one so i wanted to see the others too. Thanks i luv your blog ^_^

I’m glad you love my blog and the Yusuke prompt! The post they’re referencing is here, for anyone interested. Thank you so much! Enjoy!

Note: I might consider making a sequel to Akira’s… just because.

WARNING: mention of death and injuries ahead. Please read at your own discretion.



Akira:

  • As soon as the news of S/O being hospitalized reaches his ears, Akira practically sprints to the location.
  • On the outside he appears calm, but his mind is reeling with thoughts of S/O.
  • He doesn’t want to jump to conclusions, but the worst possible outcome nags his mind nevertheless.
  • It wasn’t anything bad… right?
  • Akira finally arrived at the hospital, breaking out into a cold sweat as he approached the receptionist.
  • Panic secured every last nerve of his shaking body, but he kept his voice steady as he spoke.
  • “I’m here to see S/O,” he stated firmly, wasting no time on formalities.
  • “And you are?”
  • “Their fiance, Akira Kurusu.”
  • “Oh. Hm, let’s see, looks like they’re stationed right down the hall, but you should know that-”
  • Akira didn’t stick around to hear the final part of the receptionist’s sentence as he dashed toward the designated room, which he only knew because he saw it on the receptionist’s clipboard.
  • He reached the room and quietly entered, not wanting to startle S/O; they must already be frazzled enough.
  • Fortunately, they were awake in their bed, and they were eyeing him rather curiously as he rushed to grab their hand.
  • “S/O! Are you OK?”
  • Akira noticed an odd gleam in their eyes as they scrutinized him, and a sudden thought came into his head, causing his heart to sink in grief.
  • No…
  • They opened their mouth to speak.
  • “I’m fine, but…“
  • No… please don’t say it…
  • “Who are you?”


Ryuji:

  • “What?! You serious?!”
  • Once Ryuji reconfirmed the news with the receptionist via phone, he immediately hung up, dropped what he was doing, and darted to the hospital with a determined scowl on his face.
  • “S/O… you better wait for me, dammit!”
  • The hospital was near his location, but he still managed to arrive there far more quickly than any method of transportation.
  • His long legs seemed to move on their own as he concentrated all of his energy into his speed, his mind blank except for one thought: S/O.
  • Please… please be safe.
  • The blonde barged into the vicinity and frantically glanced around until he spotted the receptionist.
  • “Hey, I’m here to see S/O!” he gasped, heavily leaning on the counter.
  • “U-um, could you please-”
  • “JiJi?” Ryuji instantly recognized his embarrassing nickname and the voice that spoke it. 
  • He whirled around with a concerned expression plastered on his face. “S/O…!”
  • Crutches were under each of their arms accompanied by a cast around one of their ankles, and they appeared quite content despite being injured.
  • “Shit, are you OK?!” Ryuji exclaimed as he rushed in front of them, resting his palm on one of their cheeks.
  • “I’m fine, I just got a minor injury while I… went for a jog.”
  • Ryuji’s eyes widened. “For real?! You did?!”
  • S/O narrowed their eyes with a pink blush on their cheeks. “You don’t have to act that surprised.”
  • “N-nah, I didn’t mean it that way…! Anyways, I’m just glad you’re all right. Ya had me really freaked out.”
  • “Sorry to worry you…”
  • He placed a tender kiss on their forehead. “Don’t worry about me, worry about gettin’ better.” He scratched the back of his sunny head before continuing, “By the way, why’d ya get into joggin’ all of a sudden?”
  • S/O averted their gaze, their former rosy flush now turning scarlet. “I… wanted to train so I could keep up with you when you go for jogs.”
  • Ryuji accompanied S/O with their blushing, swearing that he could feel an arrow pierce through his heart at that moment. “D-dork… I would’ve gone slow for you if ya just asked.” He sighed in exasperation. “Welp, looks like I gotta carry ya home now.”
  • “Th-that… would make me feel a little better.”
  • Ryuji’s lips curved into a toothy grin. “Haha, I’ll carry ya all around the apartment later. Promise.”

Ann:

  • “No… S/O!”
  • When Ann received the phone call from the hospital, she rushed over there immediately.
  • She didn’t have the luxury of time to wait for a bus, so she traveled by foot, worry etched onto her porcelain face.
  • I have to believe that they’re okay. So please… hang in there, S/O.
  • Although she focused on thinking positively, her mind continued to spawn negative outcomes.
  • Arriving at the hospital made her more uneasy, and she took a deep, shaky breath prior to entering the facility.
  • Ann disliked hospitals because they dredged up bad memories; however, S/O needed her right now, so she couldn’t afford to hesitate.
  • She hastily approached the receptionist to state her business, and she was sent to the waiting room shortly after that.
  • While she waited, she anxiously twirled her hair around her finger, desperately hoping that S/O will be all right. 
  • She was just about to flip through magazines to distract herself when a doctor strolled up to her and instructed her to follow them.
  • Ann shot up out of her seat and hurriedly followed them, asking, “Is S/O… okay?”
  • “They suffered a broken rib, a few fractures, and some scrapes and bruises, but they’re safe. We’ve provided them with painkillers and medication, so they should be discharged soon.”
  • “A broken rib?! What happened…?”
  • The doctor shook their head. “The gist of it is that a bicyclist crashed into them. You’ll have to ask S/O for the details.”
  • “Thank you for taking care of them.”
  • “Don’t mention it, it’s my job. Anyway, they’re in here. A nurse will see you and them out shortly. Well then, good bye.”
  • With a parting wave, the doctor left, and Ann steadily opened the door to their room. S/O was simply sitting there, bruises and scrapes peppered on their arms.
  • “S/O…!” Ann was about to embrace them until she remembered their broken rib, so she opted for a kiss on their forehead. “Are you feeling better? I was really worried…”
  • They smiled at her. “I’m sorry for making you worry, but I’m better now that you’re here.”
  • Ann chuckled softly. “Well, it’s good that you’re feeling better. But when we get home, you’re gonna rest.”
  • S/O circled their arms around her waist, and their voice was playful as they said, “Only if you rest with me.”
  • Ann blushed from the sudden display of affection. “J-jeez… are you really injured?”


Makoto:

  • The last thing Makoto expected to hear on police duty was that a mugging took place in broad daylight.
  • Crimes like that typically occurred at night, so she was already on edge from this unusual circumstance.
  • She was relieved when the person behind the assault had been caught.
  • But when she discovered that S/O was the victim and had been sent to the hospital, her heart felt like it had stopped functioning.
  • Now wasn’t the time to freeze up, so she climbed aboard her motorbike and sped toward the hospital, her anger causing her to go a few digits above the speed limit.
  • I’m going to make sure that damn mugger is behind bars after this…! Hang in there, S/O… please.
  • Makoto attempted to muster a composed expression, but it was much more difficult once she entered the hospital and approached the receptionist.
  • “I-I’m here for S/O. Can you please tell me where they are?”
  • The receptionist peeked at their clipboard. “”S/O… oh, they just arrived, but it looks like they were… rushed to the ER room.”
  • Makoto felt her heart stop once more. “N-no… why?”
  • “Are you here for S/O?” a doctor suddenly asked, and Makoto nodded in response. “I’m sorry, but we cannot accept visitors for them right now. They’re in the middle of an operation right now… a surgery, to be more precise.”
  • Makoto’s world crashed around her with an intensity like violent waves colliding with a cliff-side. Did this happen because of her…? It wasn’t her patrol, but the slot was open. 
  • If she would have accepted it, maybe S/O…
  • “Miss, are you all right?”
  • “Of course not…!” Makoto snapped, then she immediately winced at how harsh her voice sounded. “I-I’m sorry.”
  • “It’s all right, I understand.”
  • “Will S/O… make it?”
  • The doctor averted their gaze. “It… depends. The knife that the mugger used was embedded deep into their stomach, so we had to initiate this surgery as quickly as possible. I promise you, we will do our best, but the surgery will take a while. We’ll call you when the situation changes, all right?”
  • “B-but…” Makoto felt her eyes water and her throat sting. She knew that what she said was no use, and S/O needed this surgery to live.
  • The situation still had her shaken, and her voice quivered as she said, “I… understand. Please take care of them. Please…”
  • A couple days later, Makoto received a phone call from the hospital while she was cleaning the house.
  • “Are they okay?!” she implored, forgoing all formalities. Her heart was racing while she waited for a response.
  • “I’m sorry, Miss Niijima, but… S/O didn’t make-”
  • She hung up; she didn’t need to hear the rest.


Futaba:

  • Futaba happened to be in the area, and she received a call from the hospital right as her meeting with a board of researchers had concluded.
  • “Hello…?”
  • “Are you Sakura?”
  • “Yep, what’s up?” she asked calmly. Her social anxiety hadn’t completely diminished over the years, but she was able to casually talk to others now, even over the phone.
  • Although, she still preferred chatting via text…
  • “It’s about S/O-”
  • “S/O?!” Futaba nearly dropped the phone from how startled she was. “I’ll be right there!”
  • Her stamina hadn’t improved much, but she still jogged to the hospital, her worry supplying her with the energy to do so.
  • Terrible scenarios played out in her mind like a film, almost against her will. 
  • Futaba wanted S/O to be safe more than anything, but who wouldn’t assume the worst when someone they love has been sent to the hospital.
  • She opened the hospitals doors, and her chest heaved with heavy breaths.
  • Guess I overdid it… but I need to see them for myself!
  • As though on cue, S/O appeared behind the corner of a hallway wall.
  • “Futaba!”
  • “S/O…!” The redhead threw herself at them, her arms clutching their waist as she continued, “Are you okay?!”
  • They grunted from the impact, then they patted the crown of her head. “Y-yeah, I guess I just suddenly passed out on my way to work, but I’m fine now.”
  • Futaba retracted, her eyes widening. “You fainted?!”
  • “Yeah, I’ve had to work a few overnight shifts. I’m sorry for causing a fuss…”
  • The redhead sighed. “At least you’re okay. I’m sorry for not realizing you were overworking yourself.”
  • “It’s all right, Futaba. The manager told me I had the rest of the day off, though.”
  • “They better give you a day off. Anyway, you must be exhausted. Let’s go home, I’ll make some curry for you.”
  • S/O’s eyes sparkled. “Is it gonna be the spicy kind?!”
  • Futaba winked as she proclaimed, “You betcha!”


Haru:

  • Haru was in her company car when her phone buzzed.
  • She answered the phone call, expecting a business inquiry or something along those lines.
  • Instead, it was the hospital informing her that S/O had been sent there after an accident.
  • Naturally, Haru ordered her driver to turn the car around immediately.
  • Her brows furrowed as she twiddled her thumbs, her nerves practically sizzling with anxiety.
  • She didn’t care who or how much she had to pay to keep S/O safe, but she was sincerely hoping it wouldn’t come to that, because that would imply that they were in critical condition.
  • If it came down to the worst, she was unsure if she could bear it.
  • Haru jumped out of the car as it was rolling to a stop.
  • She knew she was being impulsive, but she only cared about S/O at the moment.
  • “Excuse me, I’m here to see S/O,” she said as she approached the receptionist’s desk.
  • “S/O…” they said as they inspected their paper. “Yes. The doctor will be with you shortly.”
  • “Thank you.” 
  • Haru didn’t even make it to a chair when the doctor called for her.
  • “How are they?” she asked as she rushed toward the doctor.
  • “They sustained a stable patellar fracture from a bad fall in addition to overexertion, but they’ll be good as new within a few weeks. Right this way, please.”
  • The doctor led her to a nearby room and opened the door for her. “I will see you out in a few minutes. Sorry for the short amount of time, but they need rest.”
  • Haru nodded. “I understand. Thank you.”
  • The door shut behind her and she darted toward S/O, who was laying spread-eagle on the bed.
  • However, when they noticed Haru, they shot straight up and smiled. “Haru!”
  • She returned their grin as she embraced them. “S/O! Thank goodness, you seem to be well.”
  • “I’m a lot better now. It was so boring until you showed up.”
  • Haru retracted and smiled apologetically. “I’m glad, but I can only be here for a little while.”
  • S/O kissed her cheek and snuggled her once more. “You can’t leave if I don’t let go.”
  • “Hehe, are you holding me prisoner now?”
  • “Do you mind?”
  • Haru gently kissed their shoulder. “Not at all.” She paused for a moment. “I’m… really happy that you’re okay. I was so scared that the worst would happen.”
  • S/O gently caressed her back as they said, “Haru… there’s no way I’d let that happen. I’ve got a whole lifetime to stay by your side and watch you do great things… I wouldn’t miss that for anything.”
  • “…I’ll see if I can arrange something with my private doctor so you can stay home with me.”
  • “Haru… I love you.”
  • Haru giggled. “I love you, too. Thank you… for staying with me.”

I was DMing the first session of my campaign, which begins with our party of four Drow refugees trying to make enough money to leave the city they were evacuated to. They have decided to head out into the plains surrounding the city to try and sell whatever they can hunt, so I make them roll for perception.

Druid and Magus got low scores, but the fighter scored high enough.

DM: Okay (fighter), I need you to roll an intelligence check.
Fighter: Um…Okay. 19.
DM: Right, you notice that there aren’t any fences around, which-
Entire party: *interrupt me by laughing*
Fighter, desperately: I CANT SEE FENCES!
DM: *sighs*

I later went on to clarify that they were intelligent enough to realise that the herd they spotted moments after were definitely wild and not owned by any local farmers, but it has now become a running joke that our fighter cannot see fences and gets upset by them.

Why are my players like this.

WISHES FOR SEASON 3 OF STRANGER THINGS

New Witch FAQ

Hello Lovelies, 💜

We’ve been getting questions from some people who are interested in Witchcraft. So, here are our answers! 

                       ⭐  Hope this helps you in your journey! ⭐

Please don’t feel embarrassed because, honestly, we are all learning.


◻️ Am I doing this (Witchcraft) right ? 

Yes, yes, and yes. To be completely honest, sometimes I’m unsure if I’m doing things right too. I’m not sure if I invoked the right kind of attention, or reaction, but I trust that my intentions were seen for what they were. Then you carry on from there.

 The whole point of witchcraft, is to learn from experience and from your research and study. There is no one, definite way to do anything. It is entirely your choice. Literally everything from how to cast a circle, to deciding when you’re ready to make spells; It’s all you. 


◼️ What should I study first ?

What interests you? Make up? Fragrances? Food? DIY? Stars? Plants? The Ocean? Sweetheart, the world is yours to research. If you’re interested in anything, study it to the point you basically earned your doctorates in that subject. 

And, Yes, it’s alright to study something then ditch it to study something else, you are never required to finish any one study before continuing on to another. 


◻️ Do I have to have a Book of Shadows/ Grimoire ?

No, You don’t have to have a book at all.

You can literally have dozens of random pages stuffed in a binder, or hundreds of sticky notes on your old Cat in the hat book from your childhood. 

 Although many people do have one to keep track of their knowledge, if you feel better just keeping your information in a small notebook, along with your to-do list. It’s perfectly fine. 


◼️ I want to start a Book of Shadows/ Grimoire but I don’t wanna mess up, what should i do ?

S W E E T H E A R T, You are preaching to the choir here

We totally understand that feeling, and you’re not alone. Kinara literally kept restarting her book for a week, because of how badly simple mistakes bothered her. 

Honestly,  just combat this by not getting an expensive book in the first place. Try using a sketch book, imagine that as your draft book of shadows until you get comfortable/ confident enough to start writing in your actual book. 

You can totally still buy that expensive dream-book of yours, just remember that your book is meant to symbolize your growth, confidence in your craft, and journey through this whole process.

Also, ALWAYS, write in pencil first  before inking anything, and if you happen to be a perfectionist; get a ruler. ( Trust me, it makes things way easier )

◻️ Do I need to have a dazzling altar ?

Honey, as much as you see these beautiful altars on tumblr/instagram…the reality is that most of us are broke. ( and some have extra cash to burn)

We’ve had times where we’d had to decide whether to buy food that day or fork up the money to be responsible adults.(Growing up was a trap, Peter Pan was right)

Kinara’s altar literally consists of a diffuser, and two opalite heart stones that she got on a vacation 2 years ago. You can honestly even debate on whether that counts or not, but that’s the gospel truth, babes.

◼️ What kind of witch am I?

Anything you want. Honestly you can be literally any kind of witch you please, because it’s so diverse that you can either find a clique that interests you OR just go with your own flow and call it a day. 

Kinara: I love the ocean, I was born on an island and grew up adoring the forest. So i feel that in my heart, I was born a Sea witch who fell in love with the forest. I still am unsure how to classify myself other than Eclectic. ( which basically means diverse )

◻️ Do I have to worship/ work with a God / Goddess? 

Nope! You choose your path, and you go with what makes you comfortable. 

Kinara: I personally don’t work with any gods/goddesses. Only because I feel that these Gods/Goddesses came to be, because people wanted a shorter way to encourage/invoke specific traits that these gods/goddesses represent. 

Of course, I don’t mean to lessen their worth or value, I just feel that what they represent is something I feel more comfortable following. 

◼️ Can I have an Altar if I don’t worship/ work with Gods/Goddesses?

Yes! You can use your altar to honor the Sabbaths. Or if you want a sacred space to practice your craft, it’s perfect for that also. 

Witchcraft is very easy going, very ‘go-with-the-flow’ and super forgiving since we’re constantly learning what it means to us as individuals.

 As a whole, we can agree that it’s a great way of life, and a way to really get your mind going. Everything is connected, and we are just a part of this giant design with marvelous purpose!


💥 Well those are the main ones, Please feel free to message us with any questions! 💥

Sugaring Rules to Live By

Okay ladies, Sugaring is an amazing thing to be involved in but I’d say there is a right and wrong way to do it. Right way is knowing you’re in control and being the person taking advantage instead of the person being taken advantage of.

I’ve compiled a list of 12 of the most important pointers I can give to anybody who’s in the bowl but hasn’t been as successful as they would like to be.

1. Never Meet at a POT’s House

Number one rule for a reason! Never meet a potential daddy at their house this is a no because your safety is of upmost importance and it should never be compromised. I wouldn’t meet a POT in a hotel room first either, always meet in a public place. If the POT gives you bad vibes while you’re in a public place you have no obligation to see them ever again.

2. Never Accept Checks for Payment

This rule is a big one as well. I’ve seen sugar baby horror stories about how a sugar daddy sent a fraudulent check to an SB and then dips and they never see the daddy again. Don’t be the naive SB and accept a check. There are many other quicker ways to receive payment, I personally use PayPal and cash. If an SD insists on paying with this outdated and untrustworthy form DROP HIM, you’re doing yourself a favor and avoiding salt.

3. Never Trust a POT

When I say never trust a POT I mean never trust a potential daddy who you’re still in early stages of an arrangement with. Obviously once you are officially sugar dating then both of you need to trust each other but when you’re prospecting and meeting the first few times assume he is untrustworthy. You need to always look out for yourself! The worst he can lose is some money that he will make more of, the worst that can happen to you is much worse- death, rape, assault. Act like these men are strangers that your mom told you to avoid until he’s proven he’s genuine. If you look at men this way you’ll always protect yourself.

4. Never Lower your Standards Because You Need Money

I’ve been in a situation where I’ve accepted lower offers or things Im usually not comfortable with and I’ve regretted it. Know the per meet or allowance amount you want and only budge the set amount you’ve set in your mind if he’s offering more, but never less. If you set and keep a standard you will make your searching process easier and help yourself avoid salt. You will eventually find the daddy that fits your needs and lifestyle if you stick to this.

5. Never be Afraid to Ask For What You Want

Don’t be afraid to ask for him to buy you shoes you want or to pay for a yoga class you want to try or for extra cash, the worst you can get from a man from asking is a no. This is also a good test to see if they’re salt! If you ask your daddy for $100 for example outside of the allowance amount for a new dress and he takes it out from the allowance amount instead of sending extra he is salt!!!! A real sugar daddy will not count pennies. A real sugar daddy will do what he says he will do in your life and that is help you financially!

6. Never Agree to Getting Your Money Later

By this I mean never agree to an “I’ll give you money next time” or “I’ll send you extra next week”. By saying yes to this you are putting the control in the POTs hands and this is not a good idea unless you want to be constantly scammed. Stay in control and get your money that same day!

7. Always Learn and Grow from Past Mistakes

Getting into the bowl can seem scary because it’s the kind of thing that the most you can do to prepare yourself for it is research. You will make mistakes starting out and you might leave a situation saying I didn’t like how that went. This is normal and will happen, but you have to make sure that situation you didn’t like doesn’t repeat itself. Grow for the mistakes you make, keep your standards, and don’t repeat behavior that didn’t work for you in the past.

8. Always Let a Friend Know When You’re On a Date

Another point about safety because meeting up with random people from an app can be dangerous. Always tell someone where you are when you’re on a date with a random to make sure someone has your back if your date gets uncomfortable or sour. And make sure to let them know to check on you in a few hours or text them letting them know you got home safe.

9. Always Ask a POT How Much Allowance He’s Comfortable with First

So this rule can be applied to when you’re interacting with POT’s on whatever app you use. Always ask them first what allowance amount they are comfortable with when discussing allowance, because if they have for example $800 per meet In mind and you say $400, you just shot yourself in the foot and missed your opportunity to make more!

10. Always Make an SD Pay for Transportation

Asking for uber money or transportation money to cover gas is so important. If you pay for your own uber and the date didn’t go as planned and you don’t continue seeing the POT, you just lost money traveling to them. If the date doesn’t go as planned and you had uber covered at least you’re at the same place you were before the date. This is also another way I weed out salt. If a man doesn’t cover my uber I automatically cancel the date and discountinue interacting with this person. Real daddies have no issue covering this cost.

11. Always Trust Your Gut

If you ever have a bad feeling about a POT or about a date or anything about meeting up with someone don’t go! You feel that way for a reason and if you continue to not trust yourself and your instincts you will end up in more situations you’re uncomfortable with and more situations that waste your time and leave you vulnerable.

12. Always Know You’re the One in Control

You have the pussy! You have what he wants! You have the charisma and charm! It is all in your hands what happens! Don’t ever let a POT make you feel otherwise. You dictate every interaction and any income you make by your choices. Keep in control and you will have more successes sugaring.

Biggest payday of my life for 2 minutes of work.

Another tech story: I’m a contractor at a big bank in New York City. No benefits but I’m paid by the hour. I like the people I work for and while I realize I get paid well, I try to make sure they get their money’s worth.

On the Friday before last (start to the three-day weekend), I was told by one of the managers (mine is out on vacation) that one of “my”applications was malfunctioning in production and that it absolutely needed to be fixed pronto. This application was tested to a crazy degree, so the first thing I did was call up the server admin and ask what was different between our test and production systems. After some prodding, I figure out that the production system consists of two clustered servers whereas the test server is all on its own. On the theory that the data isn’t transferring between the paired servers fast enough for the next web page to be rendered (it’s a survey application where the answer to one question determines the next question to be asked), I suggest checking the “sticky bit” (which would ensure that when a person uses the application, they will “stick” to one server, to eliminate the data transfer problem.)

The admin (who’s a friend of mine) tells me she can’t make that change without her department’s manager’s approval, a kind of know-it-all guy.

Fine. I tell my substitute manager what I think the problem is (thinking he’ll go to bat for me) and instead, he tells me to “stay as long as it takes, including giving up my weekend to ensure it’s working” and he tells me I’ll have to work it out with the department manager for the server group.

Long story only slightly shorter, that guy proceeds to make my and his two employees’ lives miserable all weekend. I keep suggesting the sticky bit, he keeps telling me “there’s no way that’s it” and suggests dumb strategy after dumb strategy. I keep telling my substitute manager what’s happening, he keeps telling me to work it out…and stay as long as I need to.

Finally, late on Columbus Day, my admin friend says “I’m just going to try your idea without telling him.”

Fixes the problem…less than two minutes effort.

When my manager got back from vacation last week, he called me over to his desk. He had just gotten the bill from the contracting firm. He seemed pissed. I had billed for three extra 8 hour days.

Him: “I just have one question: where did you sleep?”

“On the couch in the waiting room.”

Him: “OK. Thanks.”

Earlier today, my manager came over with an envelope and when he handed it to me he said “I’d tell you to thank [substitute manager] and [server group manager] for this but since it came out of their budgets, maybe best not to. Don’t spend it all in one place.”

Check was for my regular pay plus, um, almost $18,000. My manager socked their budgets for time and a half from the end of business of Friday to open of business on Tuesday.

When I told him later that I felt bad, he said: “You shouldn’t, you taught them a very valuable lesson in server technology and business management that they obviously missed.”

Did I mention my boss used to be a programmer himself?

[MINI-MASTERLIST]


We said we were going to have rice❞ you widened your eyes stopping the shopping cart and looking down at Taeoh that was sitting in it, playing with a stuffed animal that he picked up from the kindergarten. The baby looked up at you and shook his head.

Beef❞ he said again, continuing to play with his toy. You sighed heavily, rolling your eyes to the sky.

Okay, hear me out, little thing❞ you called him poking a little on his cheek and starting to move the cart again, your eyes searching for the things you needed to cook the bibimbap.

Peter Capaldi emailed. He was mostly happy (that’s Glasgow for ecstatic) but had a couple of thoughts. I read the email on my phone, held discreetly under a restaurant table as I was out for dinner with friends - they’d never have suspected a thing if I hadn’t shouted, ‘I’ve got an email from Doctor Who!!’

I agreed with the first of his points immediately, but wasn’t sure about the second. Peter is always clever, though, so I promised to give it a go. 

The next day I say down to my third draft. And I mean third draft. Because you can’t just fiddle about with a couple of scenes, you have to start from the beginning again. You need to know the new stuff fits. So you start at the foot and of the mountain and climb it all over again, making sure that all the hand-holds still work. Everything must still link together, the new stuff must look like it was always there - like it’s necessary. And you know what? Peter’s first point worked perfectly well, but his second- a subtle realignment of the Doctor’s attitude in the final scenes - was bang on the money. The ending was suddenly so much better. Doctor Who is always right.
