complicate yourself

If you’re polyamorous, you should get a flu shot.

Influenza isn’t an STI, but it can be spread through close personal contact, including sex, cuddling, hugging, kissing and holding hands, all of which put you either in contact with bodily fluids or in your partners’ “spray zone” from coughs/sneezes/etc. And if you have three partners, and each of them have 2-5 partners, and so on, one infection can turn into an epidemic.

Some people are unable to take a flu shot, or are particularly susceptible to flu infections/complications. Protect yourself. Protect your partners. Protect their partners.


So studying anatomy is nothing like any other topic, especially when you study it at uni level, where they expect you to know every single small component of the body! So this guide is going to be concerning the musculoskeletal system and the nerves (PNS) and arteries in the body. 

I have mentioned some of these tips before but I will put them in here aswell and so this can work as sort of masterpost. This is like a more “overall” type of masterpost. So if you want to have topic specific posts for example for nerves and arteries then let me know. 

1. Find a study partner. First and foremost anatomy is so much easier when you are two dealing with it. Me and my study partner used to do anatomy spots together and by doing it two people together you can discuss what it could possibly be. You get to hear their train of thoughts which sometimes can be better than yours. Also you will have someone to quiz you and correct you when you say something wrong. 

2. Accept that it takes time. First step to learning anatomy is dedicating a lot of time. It is not easy, you are cramming so much information into your mind and for it to stay there you will have to go over the same topic again and again and again. And I know it is really frustrating and you are going to spent maybe 10 hours trying to figure out the muscles of the leg and then next week when you review it again it will feel like a whole new topic, but this is all a part of the proces, just keep revising again and again and again. 

3. The Atlas is your best friend. Invest in a good atlas, they are a little expensive but they work wonders because first of all they give you an image of what you study. And usually the text book images are not enough. In an atlas you will have “isolated” images but you will also have images where relations are shown. HOWEVER if you dont want to buy an actual atlas then maybe buy Complete anatomy which is a computer program that I also reffered to in my “5 sites every med student should know about” post. Here you can play around with the structures, view it from different angles and add on to it with other nearby structures or remove structures. 

4. Say it out loud. Pretty self explanatory. 

5. Create an overview. Rather than focusing on the details try to focus on creating an overview. Anatomy is already so difficult so dont complicate things for yourself. And if you know the basics then learning the details will be so much easier. 

6. Use a whiteboard. Speaking of creating an overview, try using a white board for this. It is such a good way for creating an overview. I think because deleting and writing is so easy it kinda makes it less stressful than writing in a note book where ofcourse you worry about the aesthetic. Also try to do this with your study partner. You can plan on studying a topic together so lets say for example the muscles of the leg, you both at home study it, try to memorize it, look at it in an atlas and then you two meet. Now when you meet you get infront of a white board and start talking and writing about what you guys think is important and when you guys cant go any further then grab your notes and then add more on to the board. 

7. MAKE IT VISUAL!. This is the most important step! Use bones, pay attention in your dissection classes, if you have the upportunity to touch, feel and look at structures then DO IT! This is the best way to learn. Spot as often as you can.

8. Make up rules. you can find a lot of them online, or just make some up yourself, me and my study partner did, for example the muscles  M. erector spinae: I (m. iliocostalis) Like (m. longissimus) Standing (m. spinalis). If you turn it into a “game” then remembering it will be much easier.

And most importantly dont stress your mind that much. Allow yourself to take breaks, because over feeding your mind with knowledge in a short period of time can also be very damaging since you will waste time and not remember most of what you studied.  

Good luck, stay motivated and stay dedicated



If a man doesn’t call you, it’s because he doesn’t want to call you. If he doesn’t invite you to go out, it’s because he doesn’t want to see you. If he treats you like shit, it’s because he doesn’t care. If he lets you go, it’s because he doesn’t want to be with you. When a man says “I’m not ready, but you are the love of my life and the only one I want, but now is not the right time.”, it’s simply because he doesn’t want you. Don’t keep playing his confusing games. Don’t justify him. When a man wants to be with a woman, he stays with her without lies, excuses and complications. Stop being genuine and naive, and stop justifying his every excuse and complication and put yourself FIRST. You DO NOT need someone that doesn’t know what they want, you do not need someone that doesn’t see your worth. You deserve a man that knows your worth and fights for you everyday. Stop breaking your own heart for someone who probably won’t even be as good as you expect and give yourself an opportunity to be happy and be with someone who actually deserves you.

The Heart - Roman Godfrey

(Nerd!Reader X Roman Godfrey)

You tutor Roman Godfrey in Anatomy, the Cardiovascular System to be exact.

A/N : This is one of my first tries when writing for Roman so I’m going to say sorry in advance! Give me some time to master writing for him! Enjoy!

Originally posted by iamfire355

Hemlock Grove High School was unwelcoming to say the least. Despite having lived in the sleepy town for all of your life, you couldn’t help but feel apart from your peers. While they gossiped, you were studying. While they went out with their friends, you were home alone. One thing that came from this was your good grades. You were soon recommended to be a tutor.

Hardly anyone ever came up to the Peer Tutoring lab. If they did, they would seek help from someone more affable, approachable instead of yourself. It didn’t matter how smart you were, your personality off put so many people, they refused to get the help they truly needed. Part of you liked it that way; you had grown used to the cold shoulders after a few years. However, deep down, it hurt you.

It hurt that no one wanted to talk to you, ask you a question about the Algebra homework or number forty-five on that History assignment. It hurt that, while you sat alone at a table, all the other tutors were explaining to their friends what the difference between a covalent and an ionic bond were. So, instead of thinking about how much it hurt, you busied yourself with a book.

You were already in deep within the pages when the rapping of knuckles against the table frightened you. You looked up and your eyes locked with none other than Roman Godfrey. You had known him since grade school, liked him since grade six. So of course it was him that came up to you. The boy offered you a soft smile, as if in apology; but Roman never apologizes.

“I need help with something,” he said coldly, “you’re a tutor right?” You nodded, peering at him as you closed your book.

“You care about your grades?” You countered, without missing a beat. Roman actually smiled, taking the seat next to you at your empty table.

“I need to pass,” he said, “my mom’s been riding my ass all week about it.” He reached down into his bag, pulling out a binder. His lips were pursed as he moved, his jaw tight with agitation. He flopped the binder on the table with a smacking sound that drew the attention of people in the room.

“Anatomy,” you said, opening the binder. “You’re covering the body systems…” Roman only nodded, watching you as you looked over his notes. You suppressed a smile as your eyes skimmed over his handwriting. It was fanciful, not the childish font most males scribbled in. Little sketches also caught your attention. A wolf’s face and a few snakes littered the margins on his notebook.

“We have a test soon,” Roman said, bringing your eyes to meet his own. “On the Cardiovascular system, I think. I’m not good with-”

“The heart? Does blood make you queasy?” You asked, leaning over the binder. Roman scoffed at your words, rolling his eyes. You noticed the quirking of his lips a little, making your heart flutter. He looked good when he smiled.

“You ask a lot of questions,” he said blatantly. While his original annoyance lingered in his expression, mischief glimmered in his eyes too.  

“I don’t see many people asking me for help,” you explained.

“Maybe ‘cause you ask so many questions,” Roman said, the hints of a grin forming on his lips. You had heard about those lips. Girls of Hemlock High raved about the magic Roman Godfrey could work. You yourself had wondered, but never dared to entertain the thoughts of him any further. If you did, you wouldn’t be able to focus.

“I can help you,” you said, flipping through his notebook to find the notes on the heart. When you found the pages, you looked back up at Roman whose gaze was glued on you. You swallowed hard under his gaze, shifting in your seat. It wasn’t just his lips, it was his eyes. You felt your heartbeat start to quicken as you mentally cursed yourself.  

“So-uh, where should we begin? The circulatory system?” You asked, clearing your throat. When Roman didn’t respond, you looked up at him.

“I was thinking, maybe the inner workings of the heart.” You nearly melted at the tone of his voice. The heart, of course. His green eyes were bright, a full grin on his face now. He knew exactly what he was doing. You felt a red-hot blush creep onto your features and you knew it would be a long study session.

Wealth’s Downfall: The First Session (Bill Skarsgård)

Chapter 1

Based Upon: You’re married to much a older man, who you’re parents chose so they could expand their business, and are struggling to cope with the hardships you’re going through. You decide that seeing a therapist could be helpful, so you book an appointment with a man named Bill Skarsgård. You’re sessions take place in his apartment and you only go when your husband is away on business trips. You’re hesitant to share your personal affairs, thinking that it would be impossible for him to understand, but slowly, you open up more and more to Bill. Yet, things turn more complicated when you find yourself becoming attracted to Bill, as he offers the kindness and care your husband does not. 

I try think of what brought me here today - what made me make that single phone call. Yet the more I think, the more answers I can come up with, and it’s now that I realize: it was countless events that lead me to this elevator tonight.

I was young and foolish, I know that first and foremost. That foolishness made me naive and oh, was I ever ignorant. I did what I did to please my parents, wanting them to be proud of me, but I see now that I should have looked out for myself, as they only cared for themselves. I was simply a business deal.

I was very young when I married Jeffrey. We were total opposites, I was still budding and youthful while he was hardened and intensely mature. But that was to be expected of course, as he was much much older than I was.

it’s ok to start identifying as asexual later in life! it’s okay to stop identifying as asexual! it’s okay to be unsure of where you fall on the ace spectrum! sexuality can be complicated, be comfortable with yourself! ✨

our gender identities do not exist on a binary and neither do our personalities. it’s okay if your personality, interests, and presentation don’t seem to 100% ‘go together’. people are complicated, we’re allowed to like and be many things. you don’t have to sacrifice or deny one aspect of yourself because it seems to be the opposite of another. let yourself be complicated and accept your own individuality. even though some parts of you may not seem to fit with others, they still manage to form something amazing–you.

ꜱᴜᴍᴍᴀʀʏ: I don’t want to spoil it lol

part one  part two

“A tall non-fat latte with caramel drizzle and a triple, venti, soy, no foam latte.” You repeat the complicated order to yourself as you walk into the busy coffee shop. How were you supposed to order all that in Korean? It was your first day at your new job location and you were trying to survive. Your crowded thoughts were distracting you from the biter cold weather.

Somehow, a part of you thought this job would be more enjoyable than you had imagined. Why did you have to run coffee errands if it had nothing to do with your field of work?

“Get those drinks here before the meeting in 10 minutes.”

Your supervisor’s voice rang through your head. You whined as you looked at the really long line ahead of you. You couldn’t exactly tell them to move or hurry up since your Korean was still floppy. You didn’t even know how you were going to order. 

In what felt like hours, you made it to the front of the line. The barista was young and smiled widely, waiting for your order. You repeated the order one last time to yourself before opening your mouth to speak. 

“Do you speak english by any chance?” You crossed your fingers hoping she would. 

“N-not r-realy.” She stuttered shyly and you cried on the inside. You were already late and you couldn’t waste anymore time. But you had to at least try to see if she could understand.

“Um -”

“Do you need help translating?” A tall, pale, blonde male came up next to you. His eyes sparkled and his lips were the prettiest tint of red. You had to snap yourself out of your mezmeration. 

“Do you mind helping me?” 

“Of course, what’s the order?” You explained the complicated order and he just laughs and nods. “That’s a mouthful.”

He repeats the order to the barista in Korean and pulls out his wallet. “Woah, what are you doing?” 

“I added my order in, might as well pay it all together.” He shrugs and gives his card to the woman. “You didn’t have to.” You felt bad for being late and now you have to repay this man you just met. 

After your new friend gets his receipt, you both move over to the side to wait for the drinks. 

“You really didn’t have to pay for the drinks.” You look up at him and again he shakes his head. “Don’t worry about it. It was easier since the people behind us were getting impatient.” He put his wallet back into his pocket.

“I’m Vernon by the way.” He reaches his hand out and you take it. “Y/N.”

“What is a foreigner like you doing in Seoul?” He laughed and you wanted to run in embarrassment. 

“Well, I’m really good at my job, so they recommended me to a company here, and I transferred! ” You hope your explanation would satisfy his curiosity. 

“Wow that’s cool, what do you do?” 

Before you could answer Vernon, you both were called for your drinks. You take the two drinks for your supervisors and Vernon takes two full drink carriers filled with coffee cups. 

“Wow, that’s a lot of drinks.” He scoffs, “Yep, my friends are too lazy to come down here themselves.”

“Anyways, thank you again. I wish I can repay you sooner but I really have to go, I’m really late!” You wave him goodbye as you rush out of the coffee shop.

You zoom through the company’s building, trying not to knock the drinks or yourself down. As soon as you reach your supervisor’s office, you take a breath and fix your hair before entering. 

“You’re late, but you’re lucky the meeting is postponed for a couple of minutes due to one of them being late.” She takes the drinks and you let out the breath you didn’t know you were holding. 

“I’m sorry Cindee, I really tried to be as quick as possible.” She nods at your explanation and you take a seat in her office. 

“They’re ready!” Vivi barges in. Vivi was your new co-worker and mentor. She was full of life and so sweet. 

Cindee and you jolt up from your seats and follow Vivi down the hallways. You were more than nervous to meet the new people you’d be working for. It was your first day and you were already late, so you had to make up for the bad first impression. 

CIndee stops at a door, you couldn’t really tell what the room behind it was since the label was in hangul. “Do not make eye contact unless they are speaking to or of you. And try not to talk since you’re not fluent yet.” CIndee whispers to you and you nod. 

She slowly opens the door and your heels echo in the room as you walk in behind them. You glance up to see a line of boys but immediately look down, avoiding eye contact. 

Cindee greets them and they exchange bows. “This is Y/N, she’s a new stylist on our team, just so you all wouldn’t be uncomfortable having a new staff around.” She explains and they all look at you.

You were guessing this was the moment you were able to look at them. You look down the line of boys, until one catches your eyes. 

It was him.


Your eyes widen slightly and your mind racing, remembering the previous interaction you had with him. Vernon just smirks and looks away. 

“Now, we can go over the new concepts we had in mind for the next comeback…” Cindee’s voice becomes inaudible as you continue to make sense of this all.

Vernon is the idol you’re working for now? He’s in the group you’ve been assigned? 

Small world, huh?

Bucky Barnes x reader AU (short series)

Notes: swearing, flirting, smut, fluff, Bucky is a hopeless romantic.

A/N: this is the end guys! Hope you enjoyed it! :) xxxx

“Clint, you better be nice” you check your make-up in the mirror one last time before straightening imaginary wrinkles in your dress.

You’re not dressed overly chic, it’s a casual night after all. Just dinner at your place, something you cooked up yourself. Nothing complicated, honestly. Something that can’t really go wrong.

Still, you’re nervous. Clint has been clear about how he feels about the entire situation; he doesn’t trust Bucky.

cobain-kurt  asked:

Hey! I've been studying a lot of Forensic Science on my own before I head into Uni, and I'm looking specifically at DNA, any advice or useful videos on DNA? If not it's g, not many people pursue a career so specific 😂

Hey @ cobain-kurt we will do our best here, but here are some resources I have used before for DNA.

Some advice: Become familiar with the MEGA 7 software as soon as possible, as it is free and lets you manipulate nucleotide sequences and can be handy in designing primers. Also BLAST will be your best friend in Uni, if your courses have been anything like ours.

My last piece of advice is to keep an open mind about DNA- it isn’t only in humans and there are numerous ways to collect, extract, examine and quantify DNA. Stick with it, DNA gets very complicated very quickly once you leave high school.

Useful Resources:

  • Crash Course Biology: Great for learning the basics, the DNA ones start at about 10 and will be useful for anyone pursuing DNA until 20 or so. Actually, just youtube DNA + educational and look at the vids that pop up.
  • ThermoFisher Youtube: Man the guy they got to talk you through the DNA specific products thermofisher has is great. We had to watch the “Taq Man” in class. Also, this is just a great youtube channel for any science undergrad student that has trouble understanding how automated machines work and why.
  • Primer Dimer Checker: Has literally saved me on assignments. Primer Dimerization is bad, but can be hard to spot yourself if you have no idea what you are doing (AKA me, the first time I was asked to come up with a primer. And the second time…. Also the third).
  • Fundamentals of Forensic DNA Typing - by John M. Butler, this is one of our 3rd year textbook, a bit dense, but covers the basics of DNA and genetics, how DNA is collected/stored, extracted, sequenced, profiled, troubleshooting, statistics, all the fun stuff. This is a more application approach to DNA. Surprisingly this was a textbook that was actually used in class too.
  • Molecular Biology of the Cell - by Bruce Alberts, this is another of our third year textbook for Molecular Biology (the one where the prof was a dick). To be honest we didn’t really use this textbook at all. It covers the intricacies of the makeup of DNA and that is not our interest. But useful if you want to see how DNA work as a molecule.
  • Wikipedia - surprisingly. Never to be used as a source, but it is a wonderful place as a starting point to figure out everything that is encompassed in a single topic. Downside is that it can get very technical with scary words if you’re not used to the vocabulary yet, and it can lead you down a rabbit whole really easily. A good place to see what you know/don’t know.
  • Too bad Watson can’t remember/don’t have the BioChem textbook. It goes into the chemistry of DNA/proteins/amino acids.

Hope this helps as you continue learning about DNA!

Can’t wait to hear what you guys think. Like and Reblog for me! If we break 200 likes/ reblogs before dinner (its 8 am my time) Ill post chapter five too!


Enjoy :)

“Wade.” Peter looked up when the familiar red and black suit clambered up over the edge of the roof and plopped down next to him. “How’s it going?” He took a deep breath, Wade’s heavy scent of electric and wild making him smile.

“Oh you know.” Wade rolled his shoulders. “Amazing. Just off being fabulous. And sexy. All that. You know how we do, Spidey.”

“Sure.” Peter laughed and handed him a sandwich. “What was I thinking, asking about that?”

Just like he did every day, Wade took the food and turned away from Peter to eat. And just like Peter had done every day in the few weeks since his heat, he grabbed Wade’s wrist and tugged him back around so they were sitting right next to each other while they ate.

“I don’t know why you keep doing that.” He grumbled and the Alpha snorted.

“I don’t why you keep doing that. Nothing under this mask that you need to see Spidey-babe. My skin isn’t near as clear and perfect and puberty free as yours.”

“We’ve been over this. I’m definitely twenty-two. Already went through puberty.”  

“Whatever you say. You got freckles don’t you?” Wade accused. “Damn kid.”

“You want to find out?” Peter challenged, only half teasing, “Wanna see if I got freckles, Wade?”

“Yeah right.” Wade laughed a little. “Better keep your mask on Spidey, I’m sure your beauty would blind me.”

“Yeah?” Peter’s voice softened. “And what about yours?”

SELFISH (Part 3.5) - Stiles Stilinski smut

Summary: With your business trip finally upon you, you drag a reluctant Liam to the Bahamas. Five days with your largest business rivals, cheating ex-boyfriend and Stiles - what could possibly go wrong? (Probably a lot of things).

Word count: Amazingly, 7.6k. Blame the smut. Always blame the smut.

Warnings: we’re getting kinky. This chapter deals with elements of BDSM including *unravels scroll* daddy kink, bondage, blindfold, orgasm denial. Also Theo dancing. 

A/N: I know some people aren’t a fan of daddy kink, so pls delight in the fact that you can skip over it! It holds little relevance to the plot other than emphasising their relationship and providing y’all w some filth. It’s very obvious where the smut begins.

However, if you do, MAKE SURE YOU READ THE END OF THIS PART! The last section of this chapter is absolutely crucial for the rest of the fic.

Starting tips for baby strippers

1. Always scope the club out before your first shift - do so in day light. Look at the parking lot and exits, look at what stores/businesses/bars are near and open how late. Always be aware of your surroundings.

2. Bring something you can use to safeguard your possessions/money (lockbox might work but locker combos tend to be popular).

3. Don’t put lotion on the day/before you work. Assume you’ll have to do pole work, or only will you complicate things for yourself, you’ll piss off whichever unsuspecting coworkers who falls on her ass.

4. Visit the club as a guest/customer before applying/auditioning. Depending on your comfort level, you can sit at the rail, bar or table. I’d recommend buying a dance, but at the very least find a girl who looks nice and explain you’re interested in stripping, and see if you can ask questions. The majority of girls (in my experience) are thrilled to do so - BE SURE TO TIP THEM! Experienced strippers can scan a room and tell and 2 mins which clients will want a dance, how many they’ll want, and in what order. They also know who’ll just bullshit all night - good friends to have.

5. Don’t bring your wallet into the club with you. Leave it locked in your car if you can. If you can avoid driving and carrying a drivers license entirely, even better.

6. If it has any loose glitter on it, you shouldn’t wear it. Same goes for heavy/feminine scents and perfumes.

(For example, I wear men’s deodorant when I work: gets the job done without making me smell like I just rolled in a cloud of lilacs.
