but i'm in the learning process

Hey to all those people telling people “ it’s not so bad, just power through the cramps” when they're on their period because it’s not an excuse to miss school/work etc.!

I had bad cramps today, but I tried to “power through it” and went to class anyways, even though my grandmother had to drive me because I couldn’t walk to the bus.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to feel like I was going to throw up in the middle of my lecture, leaving to take a walk outside in the cold to try and clear my head, even though walking made my right side feel as though it was being ripped in two.

I tried to “power through it” when I started getting cold sweat all over my body, taking off my sweater and then putting it back on two seconds later because my body couldn’t decide if it was hot or cold.

 I tried to “power through it” when spots started to appear in my vision, and just kept walking towards the exit.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to dry heave, and started walking faster.

I tried to “power through it” when my ears started ringing and the spots took over my vision and I was so so hot but shivering and my side felt on fire and twisted into knots and stabbed all at once.

I tried to power through it to the point where I collapsed in the middle of my college hallway. A stranger brought me to Outreach Services, where I lay on the floor, vomiting, for an hour until somebody could pick me up and take me home.

The school paramedics told me that I had passed out because I put too much stress on my already taxed body. My body was taxed because of hormonal fluctuations and blood loss aka my period.

Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. In the past when I’ve had cramps like this, I’ve stayed in bed and eaten strawberries and watched MASH all day.

So don’t you DARE tell me that you should “power through the cramps and do it anyways”. Powering through made me pass out. Powering through made me have to be wheeled out of the school in a wheelchair because I couldn’t keep my balance to walk. Powering through made my grandmother with osteoporosis and a tendency to panic have to come pick me up from school and help me up the stairs and almost break her hip when I started to collapse backwards on the front steps. Powering through made my 13 year old brother have to supervise me while I took a bath because I was afraid I would pass out and drown (he was super sweet about it actually; we closed the curtain and he read me Voyage of the Dawn Treader). Powering through made my mother who works to support our family pretty much on her own have to take time off work to come home and make sure I was okay.

In conclusion; If someone feels crappy because of their period cramps, leave them alone. Don’t make them do things anyways, because you might make it worse. And definitely don’t make them feel bad for not wanting to do things because of cramps; that’s the reason I even got out of bed this morning. Be nice to people on their period. Possibly buy them chocolate or painkillers. Nut don’t make them do things when they have cramps, and definitely don’t tell them “it’s nothing, power through” because cramps? Cramps can be one of the worst things you could possibly imagine.

Seriously. Fuck you all.

Since it's on it's way: imagine having to explain April Fool's Day and/or the concept of pranking one's friends for the sake of amusement. Like, maybe the aliens understand setting something up in regards to honing reflexes or something, but things like whoopee cushions and complex Rube Goldberg machines to fling shaving cream at someone just baffle them. Also the concept of a prank war in space is just amusing.

Thrnawxh watched in confusion as Human Frankie attached some sort of transparent film to the entryway, snickering to themself and occasionally looking over their shoulder as if fearing they were being watched. It put Thrnawxh ‘on edge’ as the humans would say.

In xir experience, if a human was worried, anyone else ought to be terrified.

Eventually, xir worry won out, causing xem to ask what Human Frankie was doing.

“It’s the first day of April.” Human Frankie said, baring their teeth in a show of either aggression, or bizarrely enough pleasure. Usually Thrnawxh would be able to guess which one it was based on a human’s statement, but this one made no sense.

“Also known as April Fool’s day, and oh boy does Sara got something coming for her.” Frankie continued, apparently having no idea that xe didn’t understand their explanation. What’s worse was that Human Sara apparently had something hunting them.

“And this device will stop Human Sara’s would-be attackers?” Xe asked, not sure how that would work, but xe had seen humans accomplish much more demanding things with seemingly worse odds.

“No, no what I meant is that Sara doesn’t-” they began before pausing, seemingly to reconsider whatever they were going to say. “You remember when I explained human humour to you, right?”

“Yes, when I believed you were ill because of your stomach contracting while you looked at an oddly shaped root vegetable.”  Thrnawxh confirmed, not seeing the relevance.

“Great. So this is a joke. I’m going to play a prank on Sara, because it’s April’s Fool’s day.” They said, though some of the words didn’t seem to translate well or at all to xir native language.

“I do not understand,” xe said, looking up at them in a way xe hoped Human Frankie would realise was questioning. Xir hopes were however not high.

“Shit, right okay. Erm. So a prank is a trick - you know what a trick is, right? Good. It’s a trick that you pull on someone because it’s funny, or like today, because it’s tradition. Sometimes they’re mean, but unless you’re a dickhead, they’re just funny. Like… shoving a pie in someone’s face, or pulling cellophane across the doorway and having them walk into it. Just, harmless fun, you know? And April Fool’s day is the first day of April - that’s one of our months; one of the sub-parts we divide the time it takes for our home planet to orbit the sun into. So it’s the first day of that sub-part, and it’s tradition to prank people.” Human Frankie explained, giving a small nod when they were done as if confirming what they’d just said.

“Why?” Xe asked, getting only a shrug in return - a signal of uncertainty or non-commitment. “What purpose does it serve?”

“Oh, no no purpose. I mean, maybe it did at one time? Superstition or what ever, but it’s just fun.” Human Frankie said before delving into a story of a prank they and a friend did on an authoritarian learning monitor when they were younger.

The story itself was interesting, though Thrnawxh was hardly able to focus when xe had so much new information to process about human behaviour.

Xe certainly had a lot left to learn.


Wait a second.

Tonpa has been taking the hunter exam for 36 years.
And Ging is 34(or so says HxH wikia which I trust to be informed) and took the hunter exam at about 12.
WHICH MEANS. Tonpa knows Ging! He met father and son!!

I mean damn Gon should have just gone to Tonpa to know more about his father: I bet in the process of trying to crush newcomers the man learn a lot about them.

And not only Ging!
Thinking about it, Tonpa knows 35 freaking generations of Hunters! He’s like, a walking bag of infos!

Kite, Shalnark, and probably many of the people who even examined him later on! He took the exams along with them!

Can you imagine Tonpa trying to have Ging or Menchi or Shalnark dropping out of the exam?
Can you imagine him actually succeeding with people like Menchi, who’s freaking impulsive and was probably very bratty when she started as well, so much that she could fall for idiotic traps just because she understimated his plotting skills?
And then having those same people examining him but, like, now they are stronger and look freaking dangerous and he better get away from those kitchen knives of hers because she still holds a grudge for being tricked.
Bet she fell for something like the drugged can. She was too eager of tasting something new.

Idk guys this is just too funny.

on the highest key sometimes i wish i could forget everything i know about BTS and go through the whole process of learning about them and fallin in love with them all over again … what a pure time i love my boys i’m so proud of them


❣️Because of the thorns
A beautiful rose 🌹 can bloom
Dark red flowers 🌺 it means I love you
Even if I bleed everywhere I wanna know you
Cause I think about you err-day
I’m already addicted to you❣️🎵🎵🎶

tiny detail that i love: while emma is trying to defend herself after her “jeg elsker homser! de er søte” nonsense the camera/isak is not focusing on her at all. isak is focusing on even because that’s who he is listening to and the lesson he’s starting to learn.

of course even is simply shutting emma down and we can take their conversation at face value, but the specific camera focus emphasizes that isak is valuing even’s point over emma’s. sometimes we see that isak has learned something based on his reaction or comments after the fact, but here we are watching the process and learning along with isak via the subtle camera direction. so good.

I'm a college student writing a short story for potential publication in a journal, magazine, etc. While I've written many plays, I feel a bit nervous about this one. Are is there any advice you'd give to me, or anyone trying to write a short story and/or get published?

Enjoy yourself. Enjoy the process. Learn from it. Write a story you enjoy, as a writer and a reader. If it doesn’t get published this time it may be published in the future. or you may learn enough from its failure to write something one day that will break hearts and win awards. Either way, enjoy it.

anonymous asked:

Hi! So I was wondering. How to say if someone is an INTJ. I mean, I know all the basics and stereotypes, but what in the reality? Is there possibility to recognize them at spot? I'm an ENTP and I truly dream of some nice, typical INTJ to waltz into my life ;;

I am struggling with this myself. But, you know, the process I’ve learned is like this:

Typing Your Average INTJ

  • The person under question of being an INTJ is often quiet in most conversations, but very confident and oftentimes sarcastically/sardonically funny when they do pipe up
  • You often have no doubt that they’re an NT type…they’re pretty intellectual and will make sure you know that they are 
  • Often not dressed according to any sort of trend. They usually dress for comfort or display some sort of interest of theirs
    • My INTJ boyfriend is really into Star Wars and America in general and always wears shirts with death stars and Darth Vader and American flags on them
    • Another INTJ I know never dresses in anything but a sweatshirt and jeans, just depends on their will to express themselves (though in the middle of summer this INTJ will wear Rush t-shirts quite often to display his love of the band)
  • Hair is usually standard or unkempt. This type is not one to want to maintain and style their hair a certain way every day–that’s out of the question
  • Often have some sort of “autistic touch” behavior as my ENTP friend says–will have weird “ticks” like scrunching their eyebrows a lot or picking at the soles of their shoes (even on dates/formal meetings/AKA no social awareness) 
  • They’ll be aware of their little ticks and such but are 9 times out of 10 absolutely fine with it. I dunno, as an Fe user that would drive me insane, but to INTJs it’s just being themselves and they’re A-ok with that. This is one thing I particularly really love about INTJs for whatever reason
  • They have a death glare. They don’t know that they do it, but they stare at random people while in deep thought and really scare certain people because they think the INTJ is glaring at them, but in reality they’re just thinking about what it’d be like if British imperialism was revived, only this time in space
  • Alright, stereotype time, they’re usually pretty arrogant or boastful about their intellect and will make you feel like you’re an ant compared to their giant mental prowess
  • They will tell you you’re dumb if they think you’re dumb. Brutally honest folks here, y’all
  • That being said, if they’re super healthy INTJs, they may be nicer and less “mean” with their words and be careful with word choices, but the gist is the same 

Flatline: Type-III

The medic-themed TF Zine submission by @dailydurian and I! Writing and colors by me (except the theme song… Albie did that lol), drawn and lettered by Albie! Starring Flatline, Omega Spreem, and Quickmix. We’re very excited to share it with you! We learned a lot during the creative process. Thank you very much for having us in the zine! Hope you all enjoy \^_^/

For those of you who are still questioning, still figuring out what gender label best describes you, for those of you that *want* a label but are still searching… it’s okay. You’ll figure it out. You don’t have to know right away.

I’ve been broadly identifying as nonbinary for over a year now, and I’ve been comfortable doing so. In the process of surrounding myself and spreading positivity, I’ve learned more about myself, and over the past few months I’ve managed to find a label that I’m comfortable with.

Don’t fret. It’s okay. You don’t have to have all the answers right now. You still have time!

some angsty pupcake modern au headcanons bc me and @sapphicdelias enjoy making each other cry late at night, apparently 

 - protective patsy. all the protective patsy. someone so much as looks at delia or their kid wrong? she’s ready to smack a bitch 

 - patsy being almost ridiculously affectionate with their kid because she knows what it’s like to grow up without that 

 - their child is injured and needs hospital treatment and patsy just stares at the wall blankly in fear, delia sits quietly next to her until they’re given the all clear and finally patsy can breathe again 

 - teenage pupcake child asking why she cares so much about being so involved and patsy cracks and tells them everything. delia spends the majority of that night comforting her 

 - they spend full hours with pregnant delia lying on the couch with patsy tucked behind her, mainly because patsy has her arms around her stomach whenever and wherever possible 

 - patsy insists on foot rubs and back massages whenever delia shows even the slightest twinge of discomfort 

 - pregnant delia complaining about how she feels ugly/overweight, leading to patsy dedicating time every day to painting her toenails or her or braiding her hair, anything she can do that delia is just too tired for 

 - delia getting annoyed at patsy sometimes but lets her continue as she knows where the protectiveness stems from and knows that it’s all coming from a place of love and a desire to help 

 - patsy being initially terrified of parenthood (”i’m not exactly an emotional person, delia. what if that’s too closed off and i can’t access it enough to be a good mother?”) and delia just holding her and listing hundreds upon hundreds of reasons and examples of why patsy has nothing to worry about 

 - phyllis delivers the baby. don’t even try us on this one 

 - delia first telling patsy she successfully conceived and patsy just hugging her and crying because she can’t remotely find the words to express how happy she is 

 - patsy just sitting there in shock when she first hears her baby because, finally, she has everything she’s ever dreamed of and things feel like they’re all going to be okay 

 - patsy seeing the ultrasound and feeling so emotionally exhilarated that she spends the rest of the scan on the bed with delia 

 - patsy wanting to tell her family how happy she is but knowing she can’t - delia often waking up in the middle of the night to find patsy not in bed, going downstairs, and finding her curled up on the couch with a picture of her and her family from when she was younger 

 - on these occasions delia just silently sits/lies next to her until she can coax her back to bed 

 - delia convincing patsy to consider therapy for her ptsd and supporting her throughout the entire process, thankful that she’s beginning to learn how to deal with her emotions in a healthy way 

 - one day their kid offhandedly mentions that they can’t imagine life without their parents and patsy initially responding with her usual smile but later delia spends the whole night holding her while she cries, though whether out of sadness for herself or relief that their child has both of them, she isn’t quite sure

I’ve been binging “Bill Nye Saves the World” on Netflix

He does an entire episode on Video Games that, as a designer, made me feel really good about myself actually. He also does an entire episode on Sex/Gender/Sexuality/Gender Expression that nearly made me cry.

He spends time talking about how Science is a process and how learning new information and discovering things that we didn’t think existed (or simply didn’t have words for) is all part of that process.

He describes these complex things (sex/gender/sexuality/expression) as something we “once thought of as a binary” as “more of a kaleidoscope”

Acknowledgment that we can shift and change and that each view is unique and beautiful in its own right.

Feels good.

vorebj0rn  asked:

How did you learn so much about all of this stuff? Did you research things yourself or take a class or something? I ask because I'm a baby comrade and would like to learn more about the intricacies of communism in case my capitalist friends try to debate me

It was a process of exploring the topics online and in books, alongside having long conversations with Leftist Daily Reminder’s other admin, Greg. I know there’s still much for me to learn, so even though I appreciate all the asks like this, I feel a bit under-prepared to tackle all the questions people have. Debating capitalism-apologists is tough because they have the status quo on their side, a huge ideological apparatus that constantly feeds us misinformation in the service of the powerful. I made a post a little while back about the main topics that leftists ought to know about when they debate capitalism-apologists, as a good way to counter all the claims they have about capitalism being “natural” and “just voluntary exchange” and whatever else.

This was the graphic for it.

I highly recommend looking into those topics. The ask tag is full of talking points you can use. 

Any further questions, feel free to ask!

Keep reading

Honestly, love, I know you might not accept it - in a “it’s okay, you don’t need to apologize!” way - but I am terribly sorry for giving this ask to the other. Had I actually done “research” on them I’d never given them this and the other asks. It’s too late now to take them back but I’m glad that you’re still okay with me doing this. Again, I apologize greatly! Love you!


※ Now, the cowboy knows how it is to be possessive of somethin’ you love but this…might be a little too far for him. The arguments you two end up having when he confronts you about it is so heartbreaking to him. He wants you to understand that he loves you and that he’s never had anyone else on his mind.

※ He’ll try to approach the situation more lightly- treading carefully. He doesn’t want to upset you but he knows that this is something that needs to be discussed.

※ He’ll have the talk when you’re both calm, collected, and prepared. He won’t rush into it like he’s done all the other times. He’ll make sure you feel safe and comfortable.

※ If it ends well then he’s content. He’s glad that you finally understand his point of view and understand how much he cherishes you. He’ll be more outgoing around everyone again without the fear of hurting you in the back of his mind. Sadly, though, he’ll still feel a bit bad when he thinks about how you might’ve just told him you’re okay to make him feel better.

※ If it doesn’t end well then he’s devisated. He wants this to work out, he truely does, and he wants to have a life with you but this- this jealousy is getting in the way. He’d react poorly, which in return makes you react the same. An argument would ensue. Even after you’ve both went to your separate rooms he’d still cling to the small part of him that wants to grow old with you.


※ Hanzo knows a good thing or two about jealousy and possessiveness. He gets like that when people seem to be giving you passing looks. He doesn’t like it one bit.

※ The fact that you both can be a bit hetic at times doesn’t help the situation at all. If he sees you with a friend he doesn’t commonly know then you better expect for him to usher up an escuse and take you away with him.

※ This upsets you. The person is just a friend! They’re nothing more than a platonic companion. Even if you try to tell him this he’ll still be doubtful, sometimes mumbling things under his breath. You can hear his words perfectly fine and, with that, a heated argument happens.

※ The argument could last a few minutes but the aftermath could last up to days. Neither of you want to say that you’re wrong and that doesn’t help. It would take quite a while, and a lot of coaxing from his brother, until he apologizes. Unless it’s you apologizing, then it’d be your friends coaxing you.

※ If you pull him away while he was doing something just because you didn’t like the people he was around he’d call you childish. Do you really need his attention 24/7?

※ You’d get irked at this and call him out for his similar behavior, to which he denies greatly. “I’m a man of honor.” He’d say, “A man that works alone.” Ha! You’d laugh as you’d feel your chest tighten. Fine, if he wants to work alone then he can!

※ The aftermath…well, lets just say it isn’t pretty. You’re both a mess, too stubborn to let your pride go, and you’re not speaking to each other. Neither of you want to end the relationship, god no, you love each other too much for that, but this has been really damaging. Every argument, every fight, every harsh word, it’s all too much.

※ Perhaps two possessively stubborn people just aren’t meant to be.


※ At first he thought nothing of it- assuming you just needed affection more than others did. It wasn’t long until it started getting out of hand.

※ The first argument you both had didn’t end all that bad. Genji, being the peaceful man he was, listened to your words until you calmed down from your high just long enough for him to be the first to apologize. To say that you might’ve cried would be an understatement. You were in such an array of emotions that crying seemed the best option when his soft voice told you he was sorry.

※ He tried to live with your neediness, he really did, but when it got to the point where he couldn’t do certain things unless you were there was when he realized that maybe this situation was more extravagant than what he thought.

※ Genji would try and talk to you. He’s heard your side and he was hoping that you’d be able to hear his too. He wants you to know that he loves you with all his heart and that he’d never give you up for anything. You’re too precious to him for that. You made him feel whole.

※ When you sat down and listened to what he had to say he could feel a ray of hope shine through him. You apologized to him as well, even though yours was late overdue, and he accepted it straight away. He knew you both could work this out.

※ He was patient with you. He knew that this would be a slow process and was willing to wait until the end of time for you. With every jealous look you’d give to others he’d give you a light scolding followed by a light peck. He wants you to learn that he’s not going anywhere and that you don’t have to be so possessive over him.

※ He’s not going anywhere and has all the time in the world for you. He knows you’ll get through this and, maybe, then you’ll both be the happy couple you two dreamed of.

Hey archy! I'm going to start studying architecture this fall so I'm practicing now as much as I can and I have noticed I'm struggling the most when it comes to designing homes for others. I mostly end up making decisions based on what I would like my own home and what my own needs would be instead of thinking about what anyone else would like. Can you give me any advice that may help?

Don’t concern yourself about this yet. That is why you are going to school! Part of the design process is learning how to work with a client, how to listen to what they say and create from it. Part of the process will always be how your design sensibilities affect the design but as you grow as a designer you will expand the horizons of what you like and what you are willing to try.
