i’ve been seriously being more productive in cafes because i always get distracted from schoolwork whenever i’m at home. i don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing because i’ve been spending a lot of money for coffee. nonetheless i always meet new people and everybody’s so sweet (especially the guards and baristas–they’re full of smiles and sunshine), but most importantly i get a lot of things done. 🌸
also: handwriting’s a mess because i just feel guilty that i’ve been wasting time rewriting stuff just to understand the topic and to make things look aesthetically pleasing that i forget the real purpose of note-taking 🤦🏼
It’s definitely going to suck at first, but you will accidentally have fun, I promise. Okay folks, this whole sedentary lifestyle thing isn’t working anymore.
It’s definitely going to suck at first, but you will accidentally have fun, I promise.
Exercise is anything that elevates your heart rate or takes your body outside of its normal comfort zone- you don’t have to go to a gym to do either one
Don’t use exercise as an excuse to eat junk! Bad food decisions don’t cancel out.
Yoga/stretching is the easiest way to get your blood flowing with minimal effort
Running or biking is a close second
Consistency is way more important than cramming in 3 miles in one day
if you’re doing cardio, follow up with a cool down stretch or light jog. Take care of yourself!!
Exercise after your school/workday is over (instead of taking a nap). You’ll have more energy to tackle homework, and you’ll get a better night’s sleep.
Make a playlist filled with super bright and obnoxious songs. Works every time.
If you use the Pomodoro method to study, try to fit yoga/stretching into the breaks.
If “regular” exersize isn’t your thing:
Take 5-10 minutes to dance enthusiastically in your room, that’s so much better than nothing.
Get creative with your friends. Instead of meeting for coffee, go on a hike, frisbee in the park, etc.
Small things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator do add up.
If you drive, park a little farther away.
Keep track of your steps. My phone’s health app has a pedometer but they’re really cheap on amazon- please don’t splurge on a Fitbit.
Not including the info on their little introduction posts. Stuff I got from tweets and the live stream. Craig Cahn: He was your roommate in college He has 3 kids. 2 older twins (Briar and Hazel) and the baby (River) He has an ex-wife named Ashley who he has joint custody of the kids with. They got divorced last year. He drinks marinara sauce like it’s a smoothie? He’s a total fucking bro. He and your dadsona used to go on Bro Brunch. He jogs daily and is strong enough that he can jog while holding River on his chest without hurting her. Mat Sella: He owns the local coffee shop, the Coffee Spoon. The name comes from a poem and even Mat admits that it’s kind of stupid.
The names of all the things on the menu in the shop are puns. Mat’s name is a Front Bottoms reference (Their guitarist’s name is Brian Sella and their drummer’s name is Mathew Uychich) Mat has one daughter He’s kind of awkward and really sweet. Puns! So many band and coffee puns! Hugo Vega: Hugo’s son’s name is Ernest Hugo has a Netflix account but he can never remember his login details He also has an old excel spreadsheet that he made years ago of wine and cheese pairings that he will deny exists but updates regularly He thinks his son only vapes to annoy him. He admits vaping is healthier than other forms of smoking but thinks smoking a pipe is more dignified. Joseph Christiansen: Joseph has tattoos that he covers He also owns a fidget spinner He has 4 kids. One of them is a daughter named Christie. He’s the first dad you meet in the game! He brings cookies he baked to your house Brian Harding: He has one daughter, named Daisy. She’s 10 He also has a corgi named Maxwell. Depending on what you choose he’s either the second or third dad you meet in the game. You! The player’s dadsona: You have one daughter named Amanda and she’s a senior in high school. She’s a photographer. Doesn’t Like authority. Kind of reckless. All around adorable. You had a wife but she passed away. Her name started with a C. You were in a Ska band called the Skauminist Manifesto You can choose whether Amanda was adopted or whether your late wife gave birth to her You and Amanda are new in town (Maple Bay). The game starts with you packing and moving. Amanda is pretty much aware that your into guys and is low key your wing man. General Game stuff: After you meet Joseph you have a choice to either go to the coffee shop and meet Mat or go to the park and meet Brian and his daughter Daisy and then meet Craig and one of his daughters, River. You meet Robert Small fifth at a sports bar called Jim and Kim’s (though owned by a guy named Neil) after a mom named Mary tries to hit in you You get the option to bang him almost immediately You actually see him before hand in the coffee shop but don’t talk to him until the bar. Damien Bloodmarch is most likely a vampire from the Victorian Era There are 13 children in total (including the player’s daughter Amanda) and 3 dogs (at least one of which belongs to Brian) That leaves Damien and Robert having one child each. There’s a cameo from the band Pup. Most of the dialogue in the game is grunting (provided by the Game Grumps and Friends!) The game will cost $14.99 when it’s released on July 13th at 10 AM Pacific The acronym for the game Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is DDADDS and that was intentional The creators worked on this game for over a year and a half and really care about and it comes from a heartfelt place I’m pretty sure they’re already planning a sequel There will be DLC. Possibly more dads. The creators kind of hinted that they might make a mom dating game?
If you really wanted your Overwatch fanfiction to be true to the source material, you’d use a random number generator to determine which hero to insert into each role, then work backwards to devise any required narrative justifications.

“My name,” the kid tells Derek, sounding amused. “It’s Stiles. I figure if I’m going to wrestle a complete stranger for a pumpkin the least I can do is offer my name afterwards.”
“Stiles,” Derek tries, testing the way the name sits on his tongue. “I’m Derek.”
“Derek,” Stiles breathes, like he’s testing the weight of the name too. He grins, bright and blinding, which Derek guesses means that he likes the sound of it. “I’d offer to shake your hand, but since we almost got to second base a minute ago, I’d say we’re past that point.”
