completing-the-square

Be like a circle; you have no end. You are eternal. You are limitless. You are complete.

But, also be a square; you are stable. You are powerful. You are unshakable to all challenges in which you face.

BUILD CHEATS I USE 

  1. bb.moveobjects: Enables you to place items off the grid. I use this along with the ‘ALT’ key when placing objects
  2. bb.showhiddenobjects: Shows debug items 
  3. bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement: Unlocks career items
  4. ‘Shift + ]’ and ‘Shift + [’: Increase and decrease object sizes (I rarely use this cheat)

ROOM SHAPE:

  • I started off with a 4x4 room square room. Rooms look much nicer when they aren’t a complete square. To get rid of the square shape, I added the wardrobe from Get Together. 

BLANK WALLS  

  • I dislike having blank walls so I made sure to cover most of it with paintings and wall decor. I also like to ‘layer’ my wall decor by putting paintings and wall hangings on top of each other. At the end of the bed I added some plants to take up the remaining space. 

WALLS WITH WINDOWS 

  • I sometimes add wall decor to windows as well. I added post cards and a sign to the window to add decor to an area that would be blank. I don’t use curtains in most of my builds since I like the natural light that comes in. 
  • The wall to the left of the desk has a corkboard with post cards, a protest sign and a calendar I added. This helps the room feel more lived in. Behind the corkboard I added a poster which brings in color to that corner of the room. 
  • Although paint cans don’t belong in a bedroom, adding additional decor gives you more items to play with to make each room unique
  • Don’t be afraid to use the same items more than once. If you feel it’s too repetitive, use a different swatch.

FLOORS

  • You can choose to use a carpet but I decided to use the ‘messy’ clutter that came with the Parenthood GP. Next to the mirror I added some clutter to fill up the space. 
  • I don’t mind if certain items (like the mirror) aren’t functional because it’s likely another room will contain the same item that is functional. 

Decorating this took me around 10 minutes and my tips can be applied to larger rooms! Bedrooms don’t need to include typical bedroom items so play around with items you’ve never used before.

      So today, my Adfly account got deleted. Someone reported it, that someone was @fortheloveofsims4 / @xajxosimsaddicted / @justanothersimplayer or whatever this girl wants to call herself. 

     She’s against adfly, like I’ve never seen before, she’s been commenting on many creators posts that use adfly, trying to create drama. She’s a pathological liar and very stubborn. She commented on my post telling me to stop posting adfly links because they are bad, or she would “make me do it”. So I sent her a very kind and peaceful message, asking her to stop commenting on my posts and trying to create drama. Her response was not so kind, she insulted me in many ways, simply because I use adfly… She said that she would expose me to her “thousands” of youtube subscribers. I tried to explain to her why I use adfly and I told her that if she doesn’t like my content, to simply just not download it! She still didn’t understand and kept insulting me, so I blocked her.
     A few minutes passed and I received a message from other account, her “friend” saying that I made the biggest mistake of my life, because she has 1.8 MILLION YOUTUBE SUBSCRIBERS and she would expose me! (LOL) I answered telling her to leave me alone and that having 1.8 million subs was impossible, and blocked her again. So she sends me an image from ANOTHER account, with “proof” of the subs:

As you can see, she sent me a very bad Photoshopped pic, she put her name (not even with the youtube font) and her icon (completely out of the square limits the youtube icon has lololol), and it seems her 1.8 million went down to 500k…. but anyways. I replied saying that the pic was photoshopped from aviatorgamez, and this was her reply:

Of course my first thought was, “this girl is crazy!” and thought she wouldn’t actually do anything. But it seems she did. And it seems she’s the one behind all the reports on tumblr lately, every blog that got reported was probably because of her. I’m giving her the attention she wants, which I shouldn’t, but I just wanted to warn you about this person.

TL;DR

     My adfly got suspended because this girl reported it. I’ve lost all my earnings and all my links, I’m working at the moment in replacing them. I can’t wrap my head on how someone can do this to someone. I’ve done nothing wrong to anyone. I simply share content. I know it’s not the best way, but it’s the only way I can share it. Yes, I used 2 adfly links, which is very annoying, I understand. But earnings on adfly aren’t much, this way was a way of making a more significant amount. I am a student at University by day, I have a part time job by night, and on my free time I make cc for you, for FREE. I live alone, I need to pay rent, food, tuition, everything. The Sims and adfly have literally saved my life at times, because it was a little extra money, that helped me a lot.
     I’m not saying this for anyone to be sorry for me, I hate that, because I’m not the only one and there’s people with much less than me. I just can’t understand how someone is capable of just ruining someones work, just like that. Why can’t they just ignore and leave people alone doing their own things? If you don’t like something from a creator don’t download it. Why go to extreme measures and report them? Literally ruining a life of someone just for the sake of it. I truly don’t understand and I’m very very hurt. I’m sorry for the long text, I just hope some of you read it and understand my point of view. I’m sorry. 

Okay the tour Laurens completes the square of ways to pronounce that one line in My Shot

OBC Laurens pronounces it “Shout it to the roofTOPS, said to the roofTOPS”

Chicago Laurens pronounces it “Shout it to the ROOFtops, said to the ROOFtops”

first Broadway replacement pronounced it “Shout it to the ROOFtops, said to the roofTOPS”

now Tour Laurens pronounces it “Shout it to the roofTOPS, said to the ROOFtops”

We’ve explored all options, congrats dudes

Something I love about 19th century German anarchist papers is how much space they give to just directly addressing the ruling class, with the sole purpose of inciting fear and panic in them - basically ‘we’re going to kill all of you one by one and there’s fuck all you can do about it’, and it worked too, all the evidence shows that they were absolutely shitting themselves. They would drag anarchists into court and the defendant would use his whole time to tell the judge that he’d shortly be getting murdered. Like:

Rumpf was a chief of police, stabbed to death in front of his own house by an anarchist (not even this one, Lieske was completely innocent but thought he’d square go the world at his trial anyway)

hi! can you write a non magic au with drarry in like highschool where harry is popular and draco is more of an outsider and they like get stuck together in detention or something?

here you go! a note before the story. If you send me a prompt I might take a while to respond bc I write them as they inspire me so that I can write the best possible story for y’all. That’s it. Enjoy!


It was Friday night at Hogwarts High School and the football team was playing yet another game. Draco Malfoy was sitting in the stands, as per usual. He never really got into sports, however he was very into the left midfielder, Harry Potter. Though Harry would never actually like Draco back, he still liked watching him play.

Draco never actually talked to the bloke, you see, he wasn’t very popular in school. He sat alone at the library during lunch, always worked alone on projects if given the choice, and made sure to avoid any type of social interaction.

Harry, on the other hand, was the opposite. Everyone just seemed to love him. Girls would swarm around him (though he’s never had a girlfriend as far as Draco knew) and he always seemed to be surrounded by friends.

anonymous asked:

Can I ask you for a fic where Bedelia becomes alarmed as fuck at how fast and hard Hannibal is falling for Will in early season 1? Bedelia must have seen Hannibal as this totally aloof man for several years. Imagine her surprise at how fast Hannibal was losing his chill without even realizing that he was.

As a child, Bedelia had found and read Felix Salten’s Bambi. She no longer remembered how or why she’d read it; she’d scorned the Disney film as “cutesy” and “for babies.” But she’d taken pleasure in the book, which she’d thought was rather more grownup. For one thing, a lot more of the characters died.

Years later, it came up in conversation somehow, and she was startled to find that her new colleague Dr. Hannibal Lecter had also read the book.

“I remember it well,” he said. “In the end, Bambi learns that perfect freedom is found in solitude.”

“Yes,” said Bedelia. “Bambi has learned that connections make him vulnerable.”

“Do connections make you vulnerable?” Hannibal asked.

“Connections are what make us human,” Bedelia replied.

They were at a conference, so they could not extend the conversation. But Bedelia remembered it, and she was not surprised when Hannibal called to ask for an appointment. The next week, he was in her office, seated in the chair across from her. He wore a suit even now, complete with pocket square.

“What would you like to talk about?” she asked.

Hannibal seemed to contemplate this, but Bedelia was not fooled. Rarely did one come to a therapist appointment without an idea of what they wanted to talk about; and Hannibal Lecter certainly wouldn’t. “Last time we met, we talked about Bambi.”

“Yes,” said Bedelia. “I was surprised to meet someone else who’d read the book. Few have, it seems.”

“We have a lot in common,” said Hannibal. “Psychiatrists. Reading material. Solitude.” He nodded at Bedelia’s hands, which were ringless. Bedelia inclined her head in acknowledgment. “It’s rare for people our age to be alone.”

“Does it bother you?” Bedelia asked.

This time Hannibal did appear to actually think about her question. “No,” he said. “I enjoy my freedom. But I wonder if someday I will find something–or someone–preferable to freedom, and what that will be like.”

Bedelia would remember this conversation years later–when she no longer had an office, when she had only one patient, who would come to sessions in her home–when Hannibal sat down across from her and said, “I think I’ve met a friend.”

Relationship with Draco.

big spoon/little spoon: Don’t you dare tell anyone but Draco loves being the little spoon. When you wrap your arms around his waist he plays with your fingers.

favourite non-sexual activity: Walking with you. He loves to walk around the castle. Muggle London is one of his favourites. But next to walking around he loves to lay in bed with you. You could both lay in silence and never feel awkward.

who uses all the hot water: Draco but that’s because he does his best thinking in the shower. He kinda goes to his own world in there.

the most trivial thing they fight over: Draco has a little problem with attention. He would much rather you spend your time with him than other friends. You tried to tell him it’s because of his mother giving him all of the attention in the world.

who does most of the cleaning: You do. You have been teaching him how to clean. It’s not really his fault. When you have someone do it all for you everyday its hard to get into the habit.

what has a season pass on their DVR/who controls the Netflix queue: Well, of course, it’s your Netflix. He freaking loves it. his favourite is turning it on right before bed to mindlessly watch something as he falls asleep.

 who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working: You. He has absolutely no idea on what to do when something in the flat goes wrong. He is a little butt hurt over that fact that you have more “manly experiences” in life.

who steals the blankets: You do. He has absolutely threatened that he will banish you from his bed if you keep doing it. Not that he would really banish you because he would miss your body next to him.

who leaves their stuff around: Draco. “Were you reading this book?” “No, I was using it as a holder for your phone.” “Why?” “It’s hard to watch a video when its flat on the floor Y/N.”

who remembers to buy the milk: You. He forgets things aren’t done for him always. It can be hard living with someone who never had to worry about those kinds of things. Plus when you live at Hogwarts you really don’t have to worry about that.

who remembers anniversaries: Draco. He would never forget. If it’s the day of your first date or the day you get engaged he would never forget the day you came into his life.

Who cooks normally?You. Draco does love to help in the kitchen. By help I mean he tests everything to make sure it’s good.

How often do they fight?: Often. They never last long or are about anything specific. He has a temper that can sometimes only be fixed by a quick yell.

What do they do when they’re away from each other?: Draco is with his parent’s. He doesn't exactly know how to deal with the whole parents thing. You are probably with the girls.

Nicknames for each other?: Draco has always called you pet. Even before the two of you started dating. He also pulls out love here and there. You call him hun or love depending on his mood.

Who is more likely to pay for dinner?: Draco. You have tried very hard to convince him it was your turn. He never listens to you.

What would they get each other for gifts?: You went crazy on his eighteenth birthday and got him an iPad. Complete with his own little square profile on your Netflix so he could stop messing up your account. Draco tries to outdo himself every year. All of his gifts are very personal however so it makes you cry like a big baby.

Who kissed who first?: Draco kissed you first. The two of you were walking around the school right before curfew and the both of you were trying to drag out the walk as long as possible. He accidentally slammed you into the wall a little hard but he begged for forgiveness into the kiss. 

Who made the first move?: Draco did. It was after a quidditch game that he lost. You were laying in bed with him petting his head when one thing leads to another. He needed the comfort.

Who remembers things?: You do. He makes fun of Neville for being forgetful but he has lost his books more than he would like to admit. 

Who started the relationship?: He did. He even asked you with flowers.

Who cusses more?: Draco. He loves swears. Unfortunately for you, he has picked up on some of the more common muggles ones. “Muggles sure know how to swear.”

What would they do if the other was hurt?: Try and find the thing or person who hurt you.

anonymous asked:

is sam's jacket the same one from season 6? like at the beginning when dean is staying with lisa?

Close, but no. Same basic style, but one makes Dean look completely square in the best possible way, and the other accentuates Sam being the tallest tall to ever tall.

I think Dean’s one has about a foot of padding underneath

most of it is ON Dean

She was so good for him. 

Season 13 wishlist: Dean eats 3 full meals a day and gets regular sleep.

Say it with me kids: Alice in Wonderland has no references to drugs. It was written by a man who was by all accounts a complete and utter square, not to mention it was written for like, an eight year old, so please shut up about the drug thing, it’s not true. It’s just a boring way to look at things, people can be creative without the effects of drugs. I’m so sick of hearing about this all the time.
