okay i dont know if this makes sense but could you rec some fics where derek is crazy about Stiles? Possessive or protective or just really really in love? Preferably not long ones (this is from the girl that, again, didnt sleep because this is pretty much the best sterek blog i've seen. seriously, you're awesome)
Hi again :)
Well I tried but I think this ended up just being a masterpost for pining!derek ;) So don’t forget to sleep!
Derek has spent his summer vacation crushing on the Sheriff’s son Stiles Stilinski, mostly from afar, but then when school starts suddenly Stiles is sitting next to him in Chemistry and inviting him around to his place after school.
Derek’s not sure what gives but he’s certain that Laura’s behind it.
Derek and Stiles never had sex outside of their respective Heats. After all, it wasn’t like they were actually together; Stiles just hated the way the Omega suppressants made him feel, and so Derek was helping him out. That was all it was.
Even if it wasn’t close to all that Derek really wanted, that’s what it was.
His name was Stiles Stilinski. He was older than 21, but younger than 25. His dad was the sheriff and he was a student at Beacon Hills Community College. He came into the shop every couple days; always after three, but never past five. He always said hello to Laura, always bought one bouquet, and always spent five minutes trying to make Derek smile with as many puns as he could come up with by the time Derek handed him his receipt.
Stiles would rather be at home playing X-Box than attending the ceremony inaugurating the Wolf nation’s sovereignty over the Argent kingdom, but he’s the Sheriff’s son so those are the breaks. What he doesn’t expect is the feral werewolf Prince Derek AKA The Beast to take an interest in him.
It’s only been eight months since he started having the dreams, but he’s already cracking. He’s heard of people living thirty, forty years with them, unable to find the one, complete the bond…. He doesn’t know if he could do it. The euphoric, in-love feeling that used to carry into his day now hurts. It feels like someone’s ripping it out of his chest every morning and he’s bleeding, all day, until he’s asleep again and he is there.
Momma do you know if scholarships not for tuition exist? My dad makes too much money for me to get anything on the fafsa (even though a lot goes to trips for medical reasons because all us kids have disabilities and my mom has to go to her cancer checkups) I found a program that pays for my community college and books and I'm living with my parents except I have to drive 90 miles each way twice a week to go to class and I'm gonna have to cut down my hours at work to go to class
There are general scholarships ‘for school’. Which is, for books, supplies, room and board, and transportation to class. As long as you can link it to school purposes it’s fine. Just dig as much as you can and see what you find.
The anon that said they told their psychiatrist about them being trans reminded me of something. I just graduated community college, and the whole time I attended I was having regular meetings with one of the career counselors. Towards the end of my last semester, I told her I was trans. I was nervous at first because she sort of just sat there in silence for a minute but then just suddenly yelled "THAT EXPLAINS F--ING SO MUCH!" It made me really happy and I laughed, so I needed to share.
Dad, Im upset. My biological father doesn't want to help me pay for college and my mom is too poor and he's trying to kick me off his healthcare too. I'm just really upset he doesn't care. and a few weeks ago it was my birthday and he said nothing to me. :(
I am so, so sorry to hear that your bio father is being so inconsiderate and mean right now. That is not fair to you at all.
There are many alternative routes for college. I would try to apply to all the scholarships you can, so you can help yourself get there. If a 4-year university is too much money and stress, there is nothing wrong with going to a community college or getting a degree online.
I am sorry that your dad is acting the way he is right now. I admire you for your bravery in reaching out to me and your persistence in life.
I apologize for being a few weeks too late, but happy birthday, kiddo. I hope your birthday was wonderful.
Breathe. If you are starting to feel flustered, stressed, frustrated, take a break. The more angsty you feel, the less likely you’ll be able to focus on the actual concept. Take a break, study something else, but make sure when you’re trying to tackle a difficult concept, you are calm, cool, and collected.
Re-read your notes. This one is obvious but ask yourself if you’re actually re-reading your notes or if you’re just glancing over the page. Sometimes it helps to rewrite your notes in a different way.
Read someone’s else’s notes. Sometimes reading something in a different way can help you understand a concept you are struggling with.
Ask someone but make sure whoever you’re asking won’t confuse you further. To be safe, ask a TA, your professor, or an experienced tutor. I cannot count how many times I’ve casually asked someone to explain a concept and I end up leaving 10x more confused. Make sure you’re asking the right people.
Google it. Seriously. There are many amazing resources out there that may be as close as the click of a button.
Re-watch a lecture, if possible. Some professors webcast their lectures and going over your notes while listening to them is really helpful when you can’t quite grasp a concept.
Be patient. Sometimes, you’ll need to work at a concept over a number of days and that’s perfectly okay. The most important part is that you try your best to understand and that you realize everyone learns at different paces.
Do NOT wait until the last minute to tackle a difficult concept. Procrastinating on this kind of stuff right up before an exam can increase your anxiety and deplete your self-confidence. Make sure you tackle these difficult concepts as soon as you encounter them so you can take your time to understand everything.
1. Be bold. For example, don’t be afraid to tell someone what you like about their work, or to comment on something they do well. We usually like people who pay us compliments!
2. Remember that we always have something in common –even if it is just the weather, or a class we are taking. It is better to say something than nothing at all. Hopefully, the other person will respond to your lead.
3. Ask people about their interests or hobbies … and when they respond ask some open questions to keep the conversation going.
4. If you are introverted and find talking to others very difficult, try and prepare a bit in advance. For example, think of some things that might interest others (popular movies, groups or singers, the latest games etc.) Think about how you could use these in a conversation with someone you don’t know.
5. Do your best to act relaxed (even if you feel uncomfortable inside.)
6. Try to sound confident when you talk to other people. For example, don’t mumble, maintain steady but comfortable eye contact, and smile a lot.
7. Make a mental note of some amusing things that you saw or heard. For example, something funny someone said, a fun activity you did with your friends … or anything you think might be of interest to that person.
8. Watch other people who are confident and seem to find chatting with others very easy. Notice what they do – and then learn from them.
Don’t be afraid to make up your own spells. Don’t worry if it doesn’t SOUND like a spell. Don’t feel like you have to sound like Shakespeare for a spell to work. Don’t feel like you even have to say it out loud. If it feels right go for it.
