checking notes

I’ve been crying at my desk at work off and on all morning. 

First, a dear friend and colleague came in who is always so easy to talk to and such a good listener, and she loved James a lot too and told me she still cries every time she pulls the prayer card with his picture out of her purse.

Then, I received a big envelope from our business office with a summary sheet and scans of all the notes and checks that came in for James’ memorial scholarship. People gave almost $4,000 to his scholarship – including $1,000 from our agency. I’m so overwhelmed and grateful to all the people who contributed and will start writing thank-you notes this week.

I’m thrilled with how healthy the scholarship is. I’ve said from the beginning that I want it to last at least through the year that James would have graduated – 2032 – and even if no other money goes into the account, we will be able to give about $200 per year to graduating seniors all the way through 2032. That’s just amazing.

Some handwritten chemistry notes i did yesterday!!

sorry for the inactivity lately, I’ve been crazy busy with school & probably won’t be actively updating until my IB exams are over!! 

On another note, just checked my inbox and its absolutely flooded with asks about how i write my notes. Thank you all so much for the questions but for the sake of my sanity i’ll summarise how i write my notes here so I won’t need to answer the same old questions 100 times hahahha

1. The app i use is called GoodNotes. Unfortunately it is only compatible (if you are using the apple pencil) with the iPad Pro

2. My stylus is an apple pencil (also only compatible with the iPad Pro)

3. The way the apple pen works is just like a regular pencil, and the palm rejection offered by the iPad pro makes writing on the ipad very similar to writing on paper

4. After writing my notes, i print them out ( the paper template i use is gridded, so it may look like graph paper to some people <– for those who ask me where i buy my grid paper)

5. Once my notes are printed, i file them in slide binders (or at least that’s what i call them hahahah)

For burning questions, feel free to direct message (chat?) with me!!

Star and Marco’s Book Translated

So Disney released a picture of a page in the upcoming Star vs the Forces of Evil book. It’s mega hard to read so I’ve been trying to translate it. I’ll update more if I can decode any other words. (Note check the original post for updates because of tumblrs weird reblog system.) If anyone has a guess on any of the unknown words feel free to comment. The [] is my guess on what the word says.

For reference, Star is speaking on the left with Marco and Pony Head having one line near the bottom. The top of the right page is Marco speaking and the bottom of the right page is probably Pony Head speaking.

Left Side:

Hi! I’m Star Butterfly, Princess of Mewni! Today I’m bored and I can’t solve it, so me and my best friend Marco are gonna create a secret guide to everything you need to know about everything important to the multiverse etc. but shhhhh… don’t tell my parents

Wait… why am I being included?

Marco, you’ll get your chance in a sec. And who knows, maybe our guide book will end up on display in the Mewniseum! Anyway, when I write it looks like this.

when Marco writes it looks like this.


Left Side in the blue: 

Bfly, that does NOT look like you

Right Side:

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Star by Marco Diaz

1. She likes to walk on Bubble Wrap *Pop*

2. Her favorite Earth food is honeydew boba tea *Pop*

3. She’s scared of the Easter bunny. Wouldn’t YOU be?

4. She’s a great whistler

5. She forgets the Pythagorean Theorem but remembers your birthday.


Five Things Marco [R20?] Annoying About. (Like he knows everything ohmygoodness)

1. Okay, first of all like, you don’t know everything.

2. About Star because, you’re second bestie

3. And second of all, first besties know way more than second besties.

        This isn’t a list.

4. Stop making fun of other people from other galaxies [something] okay and [that?] is how we make a [life?] in my [culture?]

5. Star, you’re my bestie, girl! - Awwwwwww!

24 July - Got back from France a few days ago. Next stop: Canada! I’ll be staying in Montreal for about 6 weeks while working at a daycare :) I love children, but I’ve never really babysitted or had a little sibling or anything so my view might change.. Also, my journal is almost full, so I bought a new (handmade) one in Paris to use in Canada and bought new sticky notes with checked pages.

Is it a copout of sorts to say I can’t find words yet to describe my reactions & feelings to Benedict’s Richard III?   I’m ususally so eager to share my thoughts & opinions, but I’m unable to express myself properly.  His performance was masterful, his Richard tottering (to me, it seems) on the edge of madness with every breath he took on his ascent to the throne; then even more so, and tinged with palpable paranoia on his descent. literally, into the mud.

I have been alternately confused & amazed, dazzled & left aching inside–for a villain who embraced his villainy because he felt he had no other course, because the world refused to ever embrace him

yo consider this a relationship call??? or those pre-established ones, idk what u call them lmao.

Heart of Ice, Chapters 1-4 of 24

Zimbits AU after Year 3, Comic 6; A03

Summary:  Bitty and Jack have been dating happily since Jack’s graduation. When Jack mysteriously disappears, right after winter break during Bitty’s senior year, Bitty is devastated.   The media assumes he had another overdose, but Bitty doesn’t believe it.   A few hints emerge, but no real answers.  Bitty struggles to stay hopeful.  When Jack finally resurfaces… he’s changed.

Tags/TW:  AU; canon-divergent AU, grief, loneliness, anxiety,  hurt/comfort, threatened violence, off-screen violence, paranormal, science fiction, vampires, vampire sex

Note 1:  While this fic starts off very sad, with Bitty completely in the dark, my readers know that my favorite type of stories to write are ones where the main characters face a challenge together, and get through it based on the strength of their love. If anyone has any concerns about this fic, please feel free to contact me.  

Note 2:  The first chapters are short, and will be posted in groups (1-4 are posted today) Later chapters are longer.  This fic is 100% written and will post 2-3x a week.

 Note 3:  Huge thanks to my beta and great friend, @perryavenue for all of her assistance and support.  This process would not be nearly as much fun without her!

Chapter 1

 4 Days Since He’s Seen Jack
January, 2017

It’s a bitterly cold January day, and Bitty is still shivering as he settles himself cross-legged on his bed, laptop propped in front of him.  The heat in the Haus hasn’t been working very well since they all returned from winter break, and he makes a note to ask Dex to take a look at it tomorrow.  Bitty really should be doing his history reading – he signed up for this class based on Jack’s recommendation, even though it seems a little too cerebral for a second semester senior – but he can’t make his brain focus on it.  

He misses Jack, but at the moment it is perfectly manageable.  They spent almost a week together during winter break, before Bitty had to return to Samwell to get ready for second semester.  As captain of the team Bitty wanted to make sure he was there when the guys started to trickle in, with pies at the ready.  The Haus doesn’t smell as bad as it used to, but baked goods improve every situation.  Besides, Bitty knows that one of the freshmen still gets homesick, and he wants to make sure he does whatever he can to help him feel welcome.

It’s been only four days since he’s seen Jack, which made it easier to miss being at Jack’s home game tonight.   He’ll watch the game on television with the rest of the team.  He knows Jack will call him when he gets home, or at least text him, even if it’s late.  They’ve made this long distance thing work for over a year and a half, and although it’s never easy, it’s always worth it.

Soon Bitty gives up on his reading and goes downstairs.  Chowder and Nursey are in the living room with the freshmen, explaining something that Bitty ignores in favor of heading into the kitchen.  He gets a few trays of cookies in the oven, and checks his phone for the time.  The game is due to start in less than an hour.

The cookies are done and Bitty is just taking a bite of one – cranberry chocolate chip – when Chowder sticks his head into the room.

“Bitty?  Um, can you come here?”

Bitty follows Chowder into the living room, where most of the team has now gathered.  “What’s going on, y’all?”

“Have you talked to Jack lately?”

Bitty frowns.  “Not since lunchtime.  We texted about that grilled chicken recipe I sent him.  He thinks it needs more lemon juice…  Why?”

The television turns from a commercial back to coverage of the upcoming game, and an announcer looks out at the camera.  “All we’ve heard is that Zimmermann won’t be playing tonight.  We’ll have more on that later, but it’s not good news for the Falconers.”

“Why isn’t he playing, Bittle?”  Nursey asks.

“Is he sick?”  Dex wonders.  “It’s that time of year, everybody’s sick.”  The two freshman sitting on the floor nod in agreement.

It would have to be the return of the bubonic plague to keep Jack off the ice, Bitty thinks, his stomach clenching.  Whatever it was, it must have hit him hard.  He quickly pulls out his phone and presses Jack’s number.  It goes directly to voice mail.  There are no texts or calls from Jack, not since their recipe conversation seven hours ago.  It’s not like Jack to leave him in the dark.  Bitty suddenly feels faint.
