Hello! Winter has finally arrived, and I need help to know what to eat (or not) in order to keep an healthy diet since we eat more in this time of year, and sometimes more caloric foods Thanks😀

Hey anon, 

the key is to find the right balance based on your goals and your body type.

Here’s a grocery list that will help you buy healthy foods:

  • Aaron: Never thought I'd hear you give out parenting advice.
  • Robert: Yeah, well, it's a learning curve. Seb's not really any bother, it's the other brat that's the problem.
  • Aaron: Lachlan? I've heard he's gone to live with our Belle.
  • Robert: Yeah. If he's got any sense he'll get out of the village all together, cos if he comes near me or Seb again...
  • Aaron: Why? What's happened?
  • Robert: He lost it. Threw the remote at Seb. Could have killed him. He's out of control.
  • Aaron: You sure it wasn't an accident?
  • Robert: Well, no, but I've seen what he's capable of.
  • Aaron: What does that mean? Robert. He's with our Belle. If he has lost it, I need to know.
  • Robert: A while ago, Lawrence was asleep on the couch and er... he was ranting over him, wishing he was dead. Yeah. So I confronted him about it and the next day...
  • Aaron: Well, go on.
  • Robert: He threatened me. He got me in the car, he nearly crashed it just to freak me out. And it worked, cos I thought it was game over, Aaron.
  • Aaron: He wouldn't hurt Belle, would he?
  • Robert: He already has. She just doesn't know about it. I found out that he'd hired a prostitute when he'd only just got together with her. Who knows what else he's done behind her back. He's gonna break her heart, Aaron. Or worse, he's gonna - Aaron, where are you going?
  • Aaron: Where do you think? To warn her off him.

maruboi  asked:

So on Laurent is an actor on Damen’s set and they have to move locations up a hill. Laurent looks around and just sees everyone doing heavy lifting, so he decides to help out. Damen takes everything. Boy is offended like “excuse you I️ can do things how fucking date you” and Damen’s like “you know what bitchy okay here” and that’s the story of how Laurent pulled all his muscles carrying 3 sandbags and a light.

Omg tell me more. Laurent and Damen bicker back and forth during the entire shoot. It gets painted in Hollywood Media as a on set feud but like anyone close to them (Damen’s co director Nikandros for example) knows that they really just need to bang and gdi stop flirting we are trying to shoot

anonymous asked:

Do you think based on the last promo that Varian will try to "play nice" to Rapunzel to get her in his power and then be like "look what you've done"?

I don’t know. I’d like to think that’s part of the fourth episode, and that he’s kind of worked through some of it by now. But I suspect that Varian isn’t going to be particularly chipper for a long time, even if he’s getting along with Rapunzel and Co (we need a group name for them. “Team Awesome” was Varian and Eugene (or Flynn, as he insisted upon), but we need something more all-encompassing, that includes Lance and Pascal and Maximus as part of the team). He’s just been forced into sullen (at the lightest) teen mode.

so yeah my plan to get this mostly drawn out for the 10th anniversary kinda fell through

mostly cos i figured i should finish playing andromeda so i know of any extra characters to put in; as i’m filling everyone in i’m finding i need to move some around to fill in unexpected space

on that subject, who would you guys think should be here that isn’t? i’ve put my list i’m working off below the cut, so throw me some more minor characters who you think should be on it 

for ones i’m considering adding i have khalisah al-jilani, akksul, morda (being a krogan might be hard to fit her in though), raeka, a space cow… there are options :)

chiron, the wounded healer

Originally posted by musichasalwayssavedme

The Chiron in Aries wound relates to your identity. Feeling like you are not worthy, that your qualities are not acknowledged and a fear that you have no value at all- all of these are indicators of an Aries Chiron. This is your silent wound: feeling unworthy and self-neglect, impotence of the self. This results in hypersensitivity to criticism, offended dignity and difficulty in asserting yourself. It also suggests physical abuse, wound, deformity and other issues.

The Chiron in Taurus wound relates to neglect. Feeling like you didn’t get enough of something (emotional, physical, material, mental, spiritual, etc), also expecting to receive more attention than you did, feeling unfulfilled and undernourished in some way- all of these are indicators of a Taurus Chiron. It all comes down to your sense of worth; a kind of void that won’t go away, and even if you try to fill it, you can’t as it seems like a dark hole. This is your silent wound: feeling neglected, in some way or another. Either because people don’t value you as much as you deserve to be; or because you’re expecting too much from them.

The Chiron in Gemini wound relates to a pain of doubting yourself, your ability to communicate clearly and feeling misunderstood. Feeling like you are not capable of speaking effectively, or that no one will listen to you or believe what you have to say- all of these are indicators of a Gemini Chiron. This is your silent wound. Even if you try to cover it up by emphasizing your mental capacities, you are very sensitive (psychologically) to what other people say.

The Chiron in Cancer wound relates to lack of nurture/ love. Feeling like you’ve been abandoned, or like you can’t form strong ties, personal protection and belonging issues, fearing challenges and seeking safety above all- these are indicators of a Cancer Chiron. It’s also very common for people with this placement to feel unworthy of love to some extent, and thus, always give more than what they get.

The Chiron in Leo wound relates to not being able to fully express the things that are within you. Feeling like people don’t give you the chance to shine, having a life that doesn’t stimulate your essence, not being able to feel joy at its fullest, not believing in your abilities, and not being recognized for your gifts and talents - all of these are indicators of a Leo Chiron. It all comes down to your self-expression; and this is your silent wound: lack of self-expression and hurting ego, in some way or another. Either because people don’t let you be yourself; they overlook your talents; or because you for some reason feel like you shouldn’t express yourself.

The Chiron in Virgo wound relates to compulsive behaviors fueled by perfectionism. Feeling like you can never do something perfectly, or that you are not good enough are indicators of this placement. It suggests anxiety, pressure and stress issues, uncontrollable urge to control everything around you/yourself as much as possible. Self-doubt is very common- you’re too critical at times. Your silent wound is the need to fix in order to make thing perfect.

The Chiron in Libra wound relates to hurtful relationships. Feeling like you trust the wrong people, getting hurt over and over, getting caught in a co-dependent relationship, unrequited love- all of these are indicators of a Libra Chiron. You may feel like people in general keep disappointing you, or maybe you feel like it’s you who are disappointing them. This is your silent wound: hurt when it comes to relationships. Either because they’re abusive or play with your feelings, or because they’ve made you cold and you don’t know how to trust anymore.

The Chiron in Scorpio wound relates to fear. It can have many manifestations, depending on which house it is placed: fear of loss, of the unknown, of persecution, confrontation, death or ever change. As Scorpio is also the sign of ‘power’, this position brings about many power issues, such as you being drawn to dangerous situations to feel empowered, or constant feeling like you’re out of control.

The Chiron in Sagittarius wound relates to feeling confined in a mundane existence. Wanting to break traditions or spiritual teachings, feeling like they have no deep wisdom, feeling like they can’t achieve glory, searching for the truth desperately - all of these are indicators of a Sagittarius Chiron. This is your silent wound:  a desperate need to find meaning, in some way or another. It’s common for people with Chiron in Sagittarius to feel like they are an eagle inside, but are tied and cannot fly. There’s a lingering fear that you can never be glorious or live life like an adventure.

The Chiron in Capricorn wound relates to not being recognized. Feeling like you are not heard, that your efforts are not acknowledged and a fear that no one will listen to you and recognize your value- all of these are indicators of a Capricorn Chiron. It all comes down to how you’re seen regarding your potential. This is your silent wound: feeling underappreciated, in some way or another. Even if people recognize what you have to offer, in your own mind there’s always a deep-rooted fear of failing people, not doing your best at something or not succeeding, which would imply an identity crisis.

The Chiron in Aquarius wound relates to feeling different. Social rejection, fear of large groups of people, a need to withdraw from the public- all of these are indicators of an Aquarius Chiron. You may feel like you don’t belong, or you don’t share the same interests with the people around you, so you feel alone, isolated. This is your silent wound: not fitting in, somehow. Either because you’re disconnected from the world, or because you feel like the world disappoints you.

The Chiron in Pisces wound relates to the pain of disconnection. Feeling like you’re not “whole”, you’re not who you’re supposed to be, or that you can’t come to terms with higher forces or even with humanity in general- all of these are indicators of a Pisces Chiron. You can lack faith in yourself, in others and in the universe. You may feel like you can’t quite understand how the world works, like you know God works in mysterious ways but you can’t fully accept this. You don’t trust your ability to survive.

Memories

Pairing: Y/N and Harry

Word Count: 6k

Prompt:

He lays there, blanket pulled to his torso, eyes shut, he looks like the rest of them, and she feels her heart ache. She can’t help but notice how young he is, he can’t be any older than twenty-six, and here he lays with no one around him.

“Hi there,” Y/N whispers, bending down to height of his ear, “I’m your nurse Y/N. Y/N Y/L/N, and I’m here to take care of you. Make sure you stay healthy for when you wake up, make sure you don’t get any bed sores yeah? I’ll keep you company, keep you updated on what’s happening in the world, tell you some funny jokes, I’ll even let you in on the latest company gossip, but you gotta do me a favor,” she whispers, placing her hand on top of his. It’s a cold hand, rough, and she knows it’s supposed to feel that way, but it maker her heart ache even more. Y/N closes her eyes, taking in a shaky breath, “you have to pull through this and live, yeah? Because when you wake up, it’s going to be your turn to tell me all about yourself, yeah?”

She opens her eyes and sighs.“It’s late now, one a.m., but I’ll be back later to check in on you,” she gently brushes the hair out of his face and stands, “we’ve got a deal. You can’t fail me.”

or 

Y/N is Harry’s beautiful nurse who he can’t stop thinking about, to the point that he’s willing to give up his old memories and life to make a new one with her.


“Good morning!” Y/N sings.

Alfred: Mr. Potter, we missed you at dinner last night!
Harry: Yeah, well. Sorry about that. My wife had an important match. It lasted 7 hours so I didn’t have time to attend the dinner.
Alfred: WHAT. How come? I never miss a Holyhead Harpies game! I didn’t know they played last night!
Harry: It was… er… a private match. Only a few people watched it.
Alfred: Oh… well… Anyway, Cameron is going to make another dinner next week…

Ginny: You know we’ll have to go to one of your co-workers’ dinners at some point of your career, right?
Harry: What if I tell them you are pregnant and needs to rest? I have never used this excuse before.
Ginny: Yes, you have. But I was actually pregnant.
Harry: Damn it.


[instagram @potterbyblvnk] 

see, like, missy has been a very touchy character in this regen?

she snogs the doctor, and constantly rests her arm around him/on his shoulder (outside st paul’s, and once she’s free on the plane, to name a few times), and just holding on to him for dear life when he kisses her in the graveyard. she wraps her arm around osgood. in s9, she reaches into clara’s personal space to make her have the vortex manipulator, and she sits very closely to the doctor in the ship.

getting into people’s personal spaces is a very quick and effective way to make them very uncomfortable, and she uses this to her advantage to scare osgood, and her just being nearby people makes them nervous.

the scene in which she reaches for the doctor (and to me she looks like she’s reaching to fix his coat, like in s8 with the unit/cybermen in the square scene),  he steps back, and it shows she wants to be near him and touch him for her own comfort, not to make him uncomfortable. she instantly stops, and freezes and looks down and laces her fingers together, kinda shakily. she doesn’t continue her attempt, which is something the old her might have done - stepping forward and not allowing a rejection in the first place.

12 recognizes, however, how much she needs that contact, but isn’t ready to give it. he’s not much of a hugging person, but he understands that she needs that from him, so he does what he can. her reaction to this, like she’s taking a breath, about to speak, is so fundamental. she knows he’s trying to help her too, but doesn’t know how to convey how much she needs it without embarrassing herself/acting ooc.

i feel that missy really needs that hug. she really, really needs it. even just from bill. she hasn’t really had physical contact with anyone in years, presumably, and that does things to a person whose character revolves a lot around it. she’s restraining herself so much.

In a Facebook Live video on Monday, Amell said, “I have no interest in speaking about an ongoing investigation — but if you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m sure that you can figure it out — other than to say WB is conducting an investigation into what is being alleged against one of the producers on our show, and if they need my help in any way, shape or form, they will get it.”


“I thought it was appropriate before I spoke to you, or before I spoke publicly, to speak with our cast and our crew, which I got the chance to do this morning,” Amell continued before referring to the statements of his Arrow-verse co-stars. “I certainly can’t pontificate in an eloquent or such a succinct manner like [Arrow‘s] Emily [Bett Rickards] did, like [Supergirl‘s] Melissa [Benoist] did, like [Legends of Tomorrow‘s] Caity Lotz did. I stand behind and fully support everything that they said.”


Amell went on to show his support for the show’s crew, whom he called “our biggest asset.” “Their biggest strength and our biggest strength is working on it as a team,” he added. “I think we can do this because we promote and champion a safe and progressive work environment. I told them this morning, and I tell you now — and I meant it — that if anyone ever feels anything less than 100 percent safe, or anyone feels as though they aren’t allowed to express themselves and be the person that they are, that they should come to whomever they’re supposed to go to, and I’ll stand right beside them, right behind them. I’ll speak on their behalf, if need be.”


Amell concluded his video by declaring that “in situations like this, if you’re not active part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem. Period. That’s it. We do our best to have the best possible work environment. We will continue to do so. Again, I echo the statements made by my friend and coworker Emily Bett Rickards, Caity Lotz, Melissa Benoist and the chorus of others that have come forward and called for a safe, progressive, equal working environment.”

I'm just doing what you said boss!

First time poster; be gentle. P.s. this is going to be pretty long. Tl:Dr at the bottom.

Set up; I work at a big box retail store. Like the biggest. You know the one. And I’m a customer service manager. My job has a lot of responsibilities, and as the closer I have an extra one. My shifts are 2-11, with an hour lunch at 6 (usually 730).

As the closer, it’s my responsibility to pull all but a couple register tills in the store every night by 9pm (I would have to start at 8 for this) and by 10 I needed to have a certain set of registers set up for 3rd shift, because at midnight it’s a new day and this is how they keep track of sales.

Seems simple enough, right?

Now, keep in mind, after 9pm, the mid shift csm leaves. So it’s just me until 10 when 3rd shift comes in.

Well, when we pull the tills, we bring them into our Cash Office (CO) and then we put them into this monstrous machine. This isn’t usually a problem as there is generally two of us until 9pm.

That is where the issue lies. Starting at 9, we have an hour to set up 16 register tills. Half of which are the 8 self check outs we have at our store. Each non self-check till take a about 3 minutes each, so around a half an hour. The self check outs take about 4 minutes each, about another half hour. So you would usually get done right before 10. Now, this is assuming you are completely uninterrupted and can progress non-stop.

Except anyone with retail management experience knows that that’s not how it works. Most days, I could get the 8 non-self checks done in between. That wasn’t good enough though. I needed to do them all, and if I didnt, it would be a write up every time until I was doing it right.

But it didn’t stop there. Our asset protection(AP) team realized we had to leave the new tills sitting on a shelf in the CO to go help customers and cashiers. This was unacceptable. So we were told that we could no longer leave the CO if there were tills out.

Sure. So, the next night, 9pm rolls around and I start making tills. About 5 minutes in, my little palm pilot goes off, telling me someone needs help. So I radio management and have the following conversation;

“Hey, CSM Clockworktank here, would someone be able to come up and grab the training question on register x?”

The Assistant Manager (ASM) for the night; “why can’t you get it?”

“I have tills out in the CO, I can’t leave them in here”.

“Oh. Okay we’ll I guess I’ll be right up”

I thank them and continue my business, and again another person needs help so I call again. This goes on for the entire hour, about every 5 minutes. At one point i call to have someone send one of my cashiers to their break, as I’m still in the CO.

10 comes around, I finish up, 3rd shift comes in and I spend my next hour sitting in the CO because I can’t leave the room.

Shift ends, I come back the next day to an email;

“When setting up tills, instead of calling for management to come up and answer questions, put all the tills in "big blue”(A wagon type thing that’s meant to hold the tills. It used to lock, but someone broke it) and management can put it into accounting for you until you need it again.“

Sure. No problem.

So, as usual, a few minutes after I start setting up, the palm pilot goes off. I call thr ASM and they come put it into the accounting office for me. I help that person, come back to the CO, set up another couple of tills before the palm pilot goes off again, so I call management up again so I can put these tills in the accounting office too.

While up there with me, the ASM says "This is ridiculous, how am I suppose to get anything done if I have to constantly come up here?”

To which I respond “talk to AP, they made this rule.”

I came back the next day and MY manager pulls me into the office and starts asking me why the other managers are frustrated and saying that I can’t run the front end and that it shouldn’t be this bard for me to manage things on my own.

I tell her that I’m by myself at night, and that I can’t leave the CO with tills out, by hers and AP’s orders, so I have to call management because for an hour I’m constantly making new tills.

I’m just doing what you told me to do boss.

Before I left for that day, I checked my email again.

“We’ll be scheduling two closers starting next week.”

TL:DR - I’m a front end manager at a big box store. When I make the new registers at night, it takes about an hour and I can’t leave the office so they tell me to call management when someone on the front end needs help. The closing management can’t get anything done for an hour so they complain to my manager. I tell her I’m just doing what she told me to do. They hire another front end manager to work nights with me so management doesn’t have to come up.

Sorry if this is terrible or isn’t really malicious compliance. Also I feel like I rambled on.

Sorry.

About grocery stores opening on Sundays/Christmas Eve

So, for the past couple of weeks people in Germany have been discussing shop opening hours on Sundays and especially this year on Christmas Eve (which happens to be a Sunday).

Situation in Germany is the following: Grocery stores and retail in general are closed on Sundays. There are exceptions but that’s the rule. Also, for Germans (idk if all of them but a lot of them) Christmas Eve is important. That’s when people celebrate with their families. (25th and 26th as well but the main thing for us at least, happens on the 24th).

Now, legally, shops as in grocery stores are allowed to open on Christmas Eve when it’s on a Sunday. A lot of shop owners and grocery chains have decided NOT to open on Christmas Eve and let their employees have a day off instead. And here come the people who complain about that. And let me tell you, I hate those people. With a burning passion. Let me explain why grocery stores opening on a Sunday is shit in general and Chrismas Eve in particular.

So here are some of the arguments those people come up with:

1) “People in hospitals, retirement homes and restaurants also have to work on Sundays! What’s the problem?”

Okay, listen up. For some professions it’s impossible not to work on Sunday. You can’t just leave sick people or the elderly alone for a day. You can’t even compare the two! For fuck’s sake you can buy groceries on Saturday, grandma who’s suffering from dementia can’t just be left alone on Sundays.

Now, it’s true that in restaurants, cinemas and service stations people work on Sundays, too. And yes, that’s debatable. Why do some people have to work to entertain others on their day off? Some industries rely on people to have free time to survive. Cinemas surely can’t be open weekdays from 9-5. Who goes to see a movie during those hours?

But for one thing, a lot (!) of restaurants are closed around Christmas. For another… enough people have to work on weekends and times that aren’t beneficial to their personal lives. Do we have to make it worse? And what even is this? “There are people working on Sundays, more people should work on Sundays because I want to go shopping on Sundays, too!” Well, go fuck yourself, entitled dickhead. Fuck other people’s lives because you can’t be arsed to do your shopping during the 6 days a week and 12 hours a shop is open.

2) “Some people want to work on Sundays (because they’re not religious or whatever)!

Great, good for you. Let me explain you a thing. What having to work irregular shifts or working on 7 days a week does to people. The weekend or Sundays in particular have been and still are (for the most part) an institution trade unions have fought for. The majority of people still work traditional working hours. Imagine a family. Imagine them with irregular working hours. Dad’s day off is Wednesday, Mom’s day off is Sunday. It doesn’t matter if your day off is a Sunday or Wednesday, right? Now, problem is: When exactly are they supposed to spend time together when everyone’s got their day off on a different day? Working on Sundays isn’t a problem because you’ve got another day off instead, right? No. That’s not how it works. Free time isn’t free time. Some "free time” is worth more.

Another scenario. Most people working in retail and grocery stores are women. Dramatically underpaid, working hours already irregular enough. Now add Sundays, so some entitled assholes can go shopping. An example. What are single mothers supposed to do now? How many kindergartens open on Sundays again? Hey! We could change their hours, too! So kindergarten teachers can work on Sundays as well! That’s gonna solve the problem, right? Fuck off.

And if you really want to work on Sundays… there are enough industries working on Sundays. Maybe go find a job there then.

3) Grocery stores in other countries open on Sundays what are you whining about?

Trade unions are strong in Germany. Worker’s rights are a thing in Germany. And that’s done a whole lot of good for us. I know for some people it doesn’t feel like it. But please compare our situation with countries with less powerful trade unions and then we can talk.

4) “Shop owners should be allowed to decide for themselves when to open their shop.”

Ah yes, neo-liberalism. Let people with power decide over the lives of underpaid workers without any limits. Yes, that’s good. Other countries do that, let’s do that to Germany, too. It’s not shit enough here already. Workers rights, who needs that?

5) “What if i forgot to buy something and need to go buy it but it’s Sunday?”

Oh noes, how will you survive? Sundays happen every week. Christmas Eve is on the same fucking day every year. Retail workers are not responsible for your shitty planning abilities.

6) “You gotta keep up with times, shops have to compete with online shops so they have to open on Sundays!”

Good luck trying to buy something from amazon on a Sunday and having it delivered on… you know. Sunday. Not even people at amazon work on Sundays. No one delivers on Sundays. What are you even talking about? Also, whose fault is it retail is forced to compete with amazon & co? Oh right! Customers! If customers weren’t such egoistical douchebags who think everything and everyone has to cater to their needs people in retail could work much more humane hours. But you know…

7) “Shops have to open on Sundays so people who work long hours can do their shopping!”

Grocery stores are open for at least 12hours a day. You wanna tell me you work 12hours a day / 6 days a week? Really? You really want to tell me you couldn’t do the shopping then? What the fuck is wrong with you?  

And now it’s not just Sunday it’s Christmas Eve. Can’t you just let people have one fucking Christmas Eve without having to work? I hate you, entitled little shits.

Hey everyone, I want to talk about something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.

As members of the online writing community, we’re surrounded daily and constantly by the accomplishments of other writers. This is for the most part fantastic. We get to support each other, and I love seeing that a writer I follow has finished their book, published a story, that their funny writing meme is going viral, or even small things like that they wrote a chapter, or paragraph, or even sentence they love. I love seeing the fanart, the words of support, the friendships, the memes. Oh, the memes. I really do love this community and all it has done and has the possibility to do for aspiring writers.

However, when you’re in a community, there’s an inherent pressure that comes along with that, and that is the pressure to be productive. I feel this is especially strong in the writing community because so much of what we talk about is productivity. How to improve it, the importance of it, the importance of self-discipline, and ambition, and pushing yourself to reach your goals. 

It’s lovely to see your friends and people you follow having success, but it also plants that worry in your mind: Am I dropping the ball? Am I not working hard enough? Am I a total fraud and failure because I binged a show on netflix instead of writing for the past week? Do I ever deserve success?

In this community, we talk about productivity a lot. We talk about how you should push yourself through a bout of writers block rather than letting it hold you back, how you shouldn’t let self doubt grab hold of your ankle and keep you from stepping towards your goals, how with a well planned outline and set of goals you can power through that draft in no time. 

And that’s great. I love being productive. I love helping other people be productive. I love it that we’re a community of people who loves to create, and it makes me feel great to be creating.

However, I want to introduce a new mantra to this community, one that I feel needs to co-exist with all the mantras about productivity, and that is be kind to yourself.

So yes, you’re not feeling too motivated right now and you didn’t write for a week. It’s okay. 

So yes, you’re experiencing writers block, and no, you didn’t make an outline, but that’s okay. That’s just your process. It’s okay to work how you like to work even if most writers say it’s a bad idea.

So yes, you don’t like what you wrote, and even though you know you can fix it while you’re editing, it’s okay to feel discouraged right now. Allow yourself to have emotional reactions to your work. 

So yes, you fell behind on your goals, didn’t finish that book, fell out of love with the idea and abandoned it, didn’t win NaNoWriMo, and haven’t written in two weeks. It’s okay. You’re not a machine. 

So yes, you’re discouraged. That’s normal. You’re not a failure because you can’t meet the standard of productivity we’ve created in this community because here’s the thing, few can. I can’t consistently or for long periods of time, I burn out. That’s normal.

This whole productivity-obsessed, if-you’re-not-pushing-yourself-to-reach-your-goals-in-every-way-possible-you’re-not-doing-your-dreams-justice, step-up-your-game mindset is not healthy for a lot of people. 

The standard this community is setting is ridiculously high for most people within it to reach–many of who are young, new writers, just trying to explore the craft and learn, and yet are being met with this immense pressure in order to be taken seriously, and many of who are students, have jobs, have other reasons why they can’t be writing machines, or are simply new writers who aren’t ready to produce at that output yet. We shouldn’t be creating this communal pressure to create create create or you’re not good enough. 

Allow yourself to take breaks.

Allow yourself to pants a project if you want.

Allow yourself to have emotional ups and downs in relation to your art because that is normal.

Be kind to yourself. You’re not a failure.

Hey what part of co are you from I just moved to western slope area, my roommate says it's bear and cougar country so I'm a bit nervous about nighttime lol

I’m living in Durango right now!  And yes, you are in bear/cougar country. So this essay’s going to sound real scary but consider: I’ve lived in CO for… 13 years now, and have seen exactly One(1) bear and evidence of a Cougar Once.  I’ve also never been attacked or even severely harassed by an animal, so this is mostly In Case of Emergency Advice.

THE  MOST IMPORTANT THINGS:

1. ALWAYS BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS.  Really, traffic is going to be more dangerous, but being as aware as possible will help you more than anything else.  You know that thing you’re supposed to do when driving where you check all your mirrors every so often?  Do that while walking. Look up, to either side, down and behind you every so often.  Keep your ears open and if you think you hear something, stop and listen for a bit.  Take some deep breaths, and smell the air around you.

This is good for both your safety AND for enjoying the lovely country we have out here.  Once you get used to looking around, its really nice all the cool things you can discover!

2. DON’T PANIC.  Douglas Addams was spot-on with is advice.  if you do encounter something Dangerous, remain calm.  Odds are that if you hold still and just watch, it’ll keep going about its business and leave you alone. 

***
OK, now for bears and cougars:

1.  Cougars are really shy and almost never confront humans (the last fatal cougar attack was in 1997, so literally 20 years ago), but if you’re hiking in the back country and suddenly smell cat pee, TURN RIGHT THE FUCK AROUND and walk back the way you came.  Fresh piss means it’s in the area, and running makes you look like food.

2.  Bears also, tend to stay away from people, EXCEPT:  in March and September-October, bears get stupid hungry and go looking for food in all kinds of places.  Never leave pet food outside, and if you compost, stop during those months.  The bear that broke into my house did so under extenuating circumstances- there had just been a large wildfire that summer so he got pushed out of his usual foraging area.

3.  In general, you’re MOST likely to encounter bear and cougar in the far back country.  If you plan on doing back country hiking, wear LOTS of bug spray and bear-bells.  as long as you stink and make noise, they’ll sense you coming and leave you alone.  You can also sing!

4. if you DO encounter one either 1. Go back inside and call the Department of Wildlife, or if you’re not near a building, 2. Scream, make yourself look as big as possible and throw rocks or sticks at it.  99.99% of the time, that will scare it shitless and it will run off.

***

OK, now for the animals you ACTUALLY are likely to encounter:

COYOTES: Urbanized, come out at night and from January-late March, they’re all hyped up on sex hormones and can get super-aggressive, triple especially if you have a dog with you.  Carry mace, and if you see them, follow the Screaming-Shit-Throwing Maniac Model stated above.

TICKS:  we have brown dog ticks here that carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and Deer ticks that carry Lyme disease.  if you’re in urban/suburban areas, they’re less of an issue, but if you go into the back country, do not skimp on the DEET (follow instructions carefully tho!) , tuck your pants into your socks and have a friend check you when you get home.  if you find one, make sure you remove the whole thing, keep the body sealed in some tape and get tested ASAP.

MOOSE, ELK AND DEER:  I’m not sure how far north you are, but the most dangerous wild animal in CO is Moose.  Really. Stay on designated trails and out of the back country from October-November to avoid rut, and exercise caution in spring when calving happens.  Do not approach, and if they put their heads down while Facing you, they are going to charge your best bet is to book it sideways and climb up a rock or large tree.

Deer and Elk tend to be less moody, but are still unpredictable, especially if they’ve become acclimated to humans, and during rut October-November.  Keep your distance, and if they’re on the move, give them the right-of-way. DO NOT attempt to feed or pet.

RATTLESNAKES: Mostly an issue in the southern half of the state.  They mostly want to be left alone and come with their own alarm system!  Though they sound less like maraccas and more like a vibrator set on high.  Stay ON the trail and OUT of tall grass from March-October, and you will very probably never see one.  If you DO see one, wait for it to leave or walk a good six feet around it.  they can only strike in a distance of 3-4 feet, so stay away and you’ll be fine!

If you do get bit, stay calm, sit down, call 911 and take off any rings, jewelry etc. that may get stuck if your extremities start to swell.  Let the wound bleed freely for a minute before cleaning.  About 8000 people get bit every year in the US, but only 8 die of it, mostly from not calling for help. 

LIGHTNING: not an animal, but the Most Dangerous Thing in CO after humans and cars.  If you can hear thunder, you are within striking distance and need to take cover.  Get inside a building or car if you can. If you can’t, squat down to keep your head low, and touch the ground as little as possible, and wait for it to pass.  DO NOT try to hide under trees, which tend to explode when struck.

***
So that probably sounded awful, but I promise that your chances of actually getting in a dangerous situation are very low as long as you stay alert and calm.

Happy hiking!

Things Andrew Minyard likes about Neil Josten that he would literally die before admitting:

  • His hands. Andrew would never ever not in a billion fucking years say he likes Neil’s long fingers which look like they are made for playing the piano. Would never tell anyone how unafraid he is of those hands coming close to him because he knows to his very core Neil would never do anything Andrew didn’t want him to do.
  • Neil’s scars. Not in a gross way. They just remind him that Neil has gone through so much, has survived so much and is still a constant annoyance in Andrew’s life. He’s not going anywhere, and as much as Andrew hates that, how can he really hate that?
  • The time when Neil refused to go for Exy practice on Andrew’s birthday, even after Kevin almost killed him.
  • Neil’s hair. How wavy they are. How they are an anchor when Andrew feels like he’s about to drown and never resurface.
  • Their back and forth bickering. It’s another stupid, pointless reason to wake up in the morning.
  • The way Neil always closes his eyes before kissing Andrew, as if he’s living a dream.
  • The way Neil looks while sleeping. Thinking of nothing, his blue irises visible even when his eyes are shut.
  • Neck kisses.
  • The way he can tell Neil anything and Neil would accept it. Like fuck, he could probably tell Neil “I killed someone cos they cut in front of me in the ice cream line.” And he knows Neil would answer, “I hope you hid the body well.”
  • The shared cigarettes. Andrew would never be with someone who detested the smell of smoke.
  • Neil’s biceps and calf muscles. Need I say more?
  • He could listen to Neil talk all day. Andrew suspects it’s why he hasn’t buried a knife in Neil’s gut yet, just cos he likes listening to Neil.
  • As much as he liked the secrets game, he enjoys everything being said even more. Neil knows almost every inch of Andrew’s life, but he didn’t flinch. Didn’t run away from the “monster” Andrew thinks he is.
  • Neil’s mouth. Not that way psshtt who am I kidding totally that way The mouth which has gotten him in trouble more times than he can count. The mouth which can strip you off everything with just a word.
  • “Kevin and I talk about your intricate and endless daddy issues all the time.”. Trust me no one enjoyed that more than Andrew.
  • “It’s always yes with you.”

((Neil’s version))

Katsuki and Best Friend Coach Victor Nikiforov to remain Coach and Student as Nikiforov Returns to Skating

Nikiforov shocked the skating world when he abruptly retired earlier this year and moved to Japan to coach Katsuki Yuuri. Their hug at the Cup of China made waves in the skating community—showcasing a deep affection between two friends. Two very good friends. Definitely just friends. No one is quite as skeptical of Nikiforov’s decision now that Katsuki’s broken his coach’s record and taken home silver.

At the press conference after the medal ceremony, Nikiforov expressed his desire to return to the ice while remaining Katsuki’s coach…
