despite all my best attempts to get back on studyblr, it’s been a rather epic fail so far ㅠㅠ I’ve gotten more productive and have more time to sleep and relax, so i really hope I get consistent with posting again!! currently studying for an ap chem test this friday - lots on my plate this month but hopefully I’ll be productive and responsible! ☆

this week’s theme (based on my agenda hehe): being proactive // quote: dig the well before you are thirsty –chinese proverb.

“The flower that blooms in adversity, is the most rare and beautiful of all.” - Ancient Chinese proverb from 1998.

Made in appreciation of @nicolaswildes fantastic AU. I do hope that Nick and Judy will find their happiness in that dystopic world of theirs. The city might make it taboo, but when they’re together, the world around them might just feel a little less grey.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
—  Chinese proverb

不见不散 (bú jiàn bú sàn) - Be there or be square!
不 (bù) - not
见 (jiàn) - to see/meet
不 (bù) - not
散 (sàn) - scatter

This 4-character Chinese idiom, or 成语 (chéng yǔ), is used exactly the same way in both Chinese and English!
So use it when making plans with a Chinese friend to meet at a specific time and location!

A:我们早上9点在健身房见!(wǒ men zǎo shàng jiǔ diǎn zài jiàn shēn fáng jiàn) - Let’s meet at the gym at 9:00am!
B:好的,不见不散! (hǎo de, bú jiàn bú sàn) - OK, be there or be square!

***Remember, whenever 不 (bù) is followed by another fourth tone word, it becomes a second tone (bú)!***

Te Rog pt.IV

Name: Te Rog pt.IV* Finale.

Author: Aya-Fay

Fandom: Fantastic Beasts and where to find them

Pairing: Percival Graves x Reader; Newt Scamander x reader

Theme: Soulmate AU. An old Chinese proverb says that an invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break. ANGST.

*Te rog from romanian means “Please”

There are two parts already up: Te Rog and Te rog pt.II and Te Rog pt.III
