Imagine Loki coming in on you listening to one of the podcasts you’ve been catching up on or binging on. You explain it was a find after you’d finished listening to another podcast from PocastOne, you wanted to see what else they had there and the screaming child on their icon got you in. You listened to a couple of shows of For Crying Out Loud and you were hooked on it too. You give Loki access to the ones you have, and a week later you find him telling you about shows you hadn’t heard. Turns out he became a premium member of PodcastOne, so that he could get access to their older shows because he was completely hooked; thanks to you. He can stop smiling as he tells you that now he has found a show that clicked with him. It’s then you notice behind him on his coffee table is the book “Sippy Cups are Not For Chardonnay” which you’ve been wanting to read for a while, only for Loki to give it to you as a thank you for getting him hooked on Stephanie and Lynette.

However, Chloe has proved time and time again that she doesn’t deserve any chances at all.

How to survive IB exams

I am currently in preparation for my final exams so I thought I would make a list of do’s and Don'ts that are getting me through my studying

• First find a place you can work!
I never focus at home so I drive to a little cafe down the road for maybe 2-4 hours a day. If you can work at home awesome but not somewhere you are to comfortable.

• Know the syllabus!
By understanding what the course required from you, you can make a linear check list of what you know and what to revise. Knowing the syllabus can also help you avoid studying excess info that may or may not be beneficial on the exam.

• Ask your teachers for extra sources!
they probably know where to find a bunch of valuable info. Background reading is good in moderation.
• Highlight specific dates/words/characteristics/systems/etc…! Do not high light whole paragraphs of info instead pick out key words that you think will be beneficial for the exam and would like to remember.

• Coffee/energy drinks are business partners not your friends!
If you are in the IB diploma program you probably binge on coffee or red bull every now and again to work through the late nights but don’t become dependent. Especially during the exams you need a clear and rested mind to focus. I recommend drinking tea to help put you in a calm mind set while studying so you are used to the material while relaxed. This is mostly about creating routine to help performance during the exam and to avoid crashing.

• Make a revision time table!
if you like order this is something you might do but pretty much what this is is a spreadsheet with maybe 1 hour slots that you fill up for a full day with what you want to do like at 10:00 study differentiation and at 11:00 maybe you switch to poetry, then 12:00 you take a break for lunch and so on. This can be really beneficial to also make sure you revise everything you need to before exams.

• Take breaks!
Your brain can only take so much. After about 45 minutes of focusing we retain info less efficiently so between subjects or topics take a quick 10-15 minute break like get another cup of water or take a short walk. Avoid using your phone because you may get distracted and waste valuable study time like you are probably doing now.

• Practice relaxation techniques!
breathing exercises, visualization that kind of thing so in case mid-exam panic-ing you can quickly collect yourself and keep working.

• Try your hardest!
No one can blame you for failing if you truly put in the man/woman hours to get the job done. Odd are if you work at 100% you will be okay in the end.

• Yes exams are important but they don’t define you!

• You are an amazing person no matter your score on a standardize test says

Flooring

A/N: for @ohemgeeitscoley for successfully adulting today, I told her I would write 100 words for every page she did. Instead I wrote double that. So enjoy unbetaed, Flommy AU post season 1 where Tommy never died because….because.

~~~~~~~

With the city rebuilding after the machinations of Malcolm Merlyn had come to pass, Felicity found herself with time to spare. It was a strange feeling, one that she didn’t think she had felt since before she had joined Oliver and John on the team. QC was closed for the next two weeks to ‘give families time together’ so she didn’t have to go to work either.


The giving families time to be together was likely a bullshit excuse to take any heat or notice off of them since Mrs. Queen had admitted to helping Merlyn in the Undertaking, but she was being paid for the two weeks. It wasn’t her place to question two weeks of doing nothing and getting paid for it.


The first few days were easy. She slept in late. Leisurely drank her coffee, binged a few shows, caught up on the books she had read only halfway through before life got difficult. The day that she checked her account balance online and found a few extra zeros where there hadn’t been any before? The day when Oliver left her and John with no word? That was when things started getting difficult.


If Felicity hadn’t been against taking Oliver’s money on principle, she certainly wasn’t going to take any of it as the sort of bribe he was making it out to be. Hush money to keep his secret. Did he really not trust them that much?


So with a hearty middle finger raised to the Oliver, wherever he might be, Felicity started ordering replacement gear for the lair. Tables. Actual computers that she could do things with. Medical supplies, a new bow. All with his money.


There might have been a pair of prada shoes in there too, but that was between her and her credit card statement.


All the supplies were being delivered to Verdant, but staggered in within the rest of the deliveries that Tommy had happening . The goal was that he wouldn’t notice an extra box here or there, which boom, instant plausible deniability!


That hope was shot the night that Tommy intercepted as Felicity tried to use the back alley into Verdant to avoid anyone seeing her.


“Hey, wifi girl,” he called by way of greeting.


“Wifi Girl?”


He shoved his hands into his jean pockets and gave an easy going shrug. “That was why you were here last time, wasn’t it? To help us set up our wifi for the club?”


Had that been the excuse Oliver had given? “Ummm… yes. At least, I’m pretty sure that was why I was here when you saw me last?” Felicity gave a mental cringe. Like she could be any more obvious about her helping Oliver run his two-man fight against crime from the basement.


This was why she had been trying to sneak in from the back!


“A-huh,” Tommy said dryly. “Sure, Wifi Girl.”


“I have a name, you know,” she snapped.


“As do I, yet technically we’ve never actually been introduced. Even after you started helping Ollie with nighttime activities.” He held out a hand toward her, and instantly the playboy persona was replaced with the shrewd businessman who ran Verdant. “Thomas Merlyn. Though I suspect I’ll want to revert back to a last name with less connotations of evil soon.”


Felicity shifted her purse further up her shoulder and gripped Tommy’s hand. “Felicity Smoak. But I think you knew that.”


WIth a nod, he stepped back and pushed the door into Verdant open. “So, tell me, Felicity. In addition to IT work, do you do flooring?”


“Flooring?”


He waited for her to go inside before he followed her. “Flooring,” he confirmed. “I have a lot of work to get done before this place can reopen, and given that my business partner is missing, I could use a hand.” Tommy walked to the center the nightclub and gave a grand sort of gesture. “This is currently the only thing in my name though, so I’m afraid I can’t pay you for any of your work. But since you seem to be here on a nightly basis anyway…”


He trailed off, and Felicity appreciated the attempt he made to let her not talk about what she was doing in the basement. She set her purse down on one of the few still standing tables and rubbed her hands together. “I have good news for you then, Tommy. I happen to work at the very affordable price of a bottle of good red.”


“And sold to the pretty woman in the skinny jeans,” he said. “Grab a crowbar and we can get to work!”

♡ The guy won’t leave MC alone??
♡ Time to use FORCE
♡ Aka asking Seven to help him out, whom gladly obliges
♡ Yoosung watches from afar as Seven pranks him time and time again
♡ And Yoosung gets to keep MC safe <3

Zen

♡ ??????WHO THE FUCK IS THIS GUY
♡ He freaks out. He can’t handle this
♡ “This guy? You dated him??????”
♡ Ashamed nod from MC
♡ Zen has a plan, though
♡ He has an interview set; a live interview.
♡ And so he decides to take MC along and introduce her to the press as his girlfriend
♡ He’s able to pull a few strings and….
♡ Oops :) They’re on the front of the next weekly people’s magazine
♡ That’ll keep the guy off of his precious babe!!!
♡ They spend the rest of the week getting swamped with paparazzi
♡ But it’s worth it to keep his babe safe

Jumin

♡ Cue low guttural growls
♡ An overprotective Jumin means a lot of things:
♡ A lot of kisses
♡ A lot of suspicious glances at people in public
♡ A lot of marks on MC’s throat
♡ And let’s not forget: talking about how much he loves his wife

♡ MC is grinning in the photo, and Jumin looks awfully coy with his lips against her throat

Jaehee


♡ She’s not really bold,,,
♡ But she is clearly uncomfortable with it
♡ It’s scorchingly obvious, actually
♡ To a point where she looks physically pained whenever he shows up
♡ She’d just shyly lace her fingers with MC’s and press a small kiss to her cheek
♡ Before introducing herself as MC’s girlfriend and sheepishly smiling
♡ MC is so proud of Jaehee!!!!
♡ They go home later and cuddle on the couch with coffee and binge watch movies together
♡ So everything is alright.

707

♡ Um??
♡ He’s absolutely not okay with this guy. In fact,
♡ He hacks into the guy’s phone and erases MC’s contact off of it
♡ And then he proceeds to delete all of the guy’s social media accounts….
♡ And sends out rancid texts to his friends and family members…..
♡ And eventually sends him a text with a fake number that tells him to watch the fuck out
♡ MC isn’t aware of any of this
♡ But she is still relieved when mysteriously, this guy stops contacting her
♡ With Saeyoung grinning wildly when he observes the chaos go down from the other guy’s phone
♡ “>:3c”

My BF, the tea thief.

So first off, my bf doesnt know how to drink tea because he takes sugar. So eff him right away.

Alright, so for some reason, it’s difficult as frig in my city to find Twinings Irish Breakfast Tea on it’s own and not in a value pack of six other blends. Well, I did and I paid the price for it; a whole twenty pack which I purchased last week.

A few days after, my BF is like that new tea is really good and I’m like yeah, it’s my favourite. I check and he’s used maybe two bags. That’s fine. But I go out and find a good deal on his favourite; Earl Grey, this one also happens to be Twinings. He’s happy and I’m like alright, I’ll ration my Irish Breakfast.

So today, after days of binging on coffee instead of tea, a week since I bought my Irish Breakfast, I go to check and…

Two bags left! That son of a bitch hasn’t even touched his Earl Grey.

Now I’m not mad, I’m just not impressed. And needless to say, the tea war begins.
