I made my own bnha OC – So sorry he kinda lame, ahh…he cuts his own hair and does a bad job at it.
I didn’t want to come up with a quirk on my own, so I did a superpower generator and got wind and I’m like. OKAY I can work with that, and then I was like “he gonna huff and puff and blow you away” so I gave him a lil piggy on his helmet for his hero suit ; ^ ;
He’s actually really nice when he gets to know people he’s just a little timid is all!
How to adult on a budget for the lazy and new adulting people (by a not-so-adulty-adult)
learn how to cut your own hair. If it’s something easy like an undercut or just trimming your ends every month, you’ll look clean and put together without shelling out $20 every month. (my hair cutting stuff cost like $20 total)
if you have to go to a laundromat, make your own detergent. Or just in general. It’s about $15 for everything you’ll need and it’ll make you a solid 6-10 batches depending on how many soap bars you get. 1 bar ivory soap or fels-naptha (ivory works just fine tbh. Cheaper and easier to find) Grate that shit. 1 cup borax and 1 cup washing powder. Mix that shit. 1 tablespoon in the wash. Boom. Add essential oils if you so choose.
On the topic of laundry, throw all your clothes in the same load. Use the cold-cold setting and you can put those red shirts in with your whites with no bleeding whatsoever. (read those tags tho. unless it needs special care, most shirts/pants/socks/underwear can all be thrown together)
When money is tight for food, rice, 2 pounds of chicken, some kind of stock or bouillon cubes, and frozen veggies make about 2-3 different meals.
Keep a few bouillon cubes handy tbh. Cook rice in it. Make soup. They’re so much cheaper than stock itself.
Coconut oil for everything from actual oil to chapstick to cracked skin.
Baby powder makes a fairly good dry shampoo. Put it on your roots, scrub around, brush out. Boom.
Make scripts for all phone calls you ever have to make to make them go smoother. (bills, doctors, work, etc)
Fill 1 side of the sink with water to do your dishes and then rinse with the smallest amount of water possible so you dont end up using a lot of water.
Gasbuddy.com helps you find the cheapest gas near you!
Aldi has great cheap groceries
If you live alone or with 1 roommate, you don’t really need more than 12 megabyte internet speed. By yourself? Don’t get more than 6 tbh. You won’t need it.
Freeze all meats and veggies! Let’s be honest. You wont be eating carrots every day or that ground beef often enough for it to not go bad, Throw it in the freezer.
Dollar store cleaning supplies save the world. Everything there besides liquid soap is basically just as good. (glass cleaner, bleach, magic erasers, so on and so forth)
Dollar stores in general. Most things there will do in a pinch. (earbuds and most electronic/battery powered things are a no-no however)
Nail polish remover gets hair dye stains. Hydrogen peroxide gets up blood. Milk for ink. Chalk for oil.
Once you finish using a pot or pan, put hot water in it until you’re ready to clean it. Stuff will just wipe off.

Imagine Amren... babysitting the rest of the Inner Circle's children
Rhys: Jeremy, who told you it was okay to cut your own hair?
Jeremy: (shrugs) Aunty Amren said we should learn to do things for ourselves.
Cassian: Laila, do you know where daddy’s siphons went?
Laila: I hid them under my pillow.
Cassian: And why would you hide daddy’s siphons under your pillow?
Laila: That’s where Aunty Amren hides all her sparkly things.
Mor: NOAH. LIVING ROOM. NOW.
Noah: (trudges down the stairs) Yes, mother dearest?
Mor: Why are all the vases filled with goats blood?
Noah: Ms. Amren gave me $50 bucks to do it.
Azriel: Rose, where it your brother?
Rose: Last I saw him, he was sitting in the middle of the stairs to the House of Wind.
Azriel: And why would you leave Oliver there when you know he doesn’t have wings?
Rose: Aunty Amren said we teach people how to treat us. Oliver sent his shadows after me, so I made sure he’d never do it again.
Feyre: Rhys, why does it look like you cut your own hair?
Rhys: Because I did.
Feyre: Why exactly?
Rhys: Because Amren told Jeremy that he should learn to do things for himself so he cut his own hair and i was going to scold him but then i realized that I’d never cut my own hair so it wouldn’t be fair to get mad at him for something I’d never tried so I tried and well….
Feyre: (pinches the bridge of her nose)
Nesta: Laila, why did you paint flowers all over the bathroom mirror?
Laila: Because Aunty Amren said daddy is always ogling his muscles in it because he wants to impress mommy, and I thought they would make him feel pretty.
Noah: Mother’s tits!
Mor: NOAH! LANGUAGE.
Mor: Did Amren teach you that?
Noah: No. Uncle Cassian says it when Laila and Aunt Nesta aren’t around.
blue is totally the type of person who cuts her own hair in front of her bathroom mirror and realizes immediately after she finishes that she’s cut it completely messily and uneven but doesn’t fix it bc aesthetic

Last year we saw a massive influx of celebrities and bloggers all making the decision to take off a few inches of hair. Emma Watson and Taylor Swift had been one of the first celebs to start the trend before it was taken on by many other girls, including YouTuber Zoella. All have taken on the new hairstyle known as the ‘long bob’, but why has this style been so loved?
Girls are grit and determination, are books and horses and chemistry sets as much as they are dreams and strategies and fears. Girls climb mountains. Girls lead medieval armies for God. Girls write daydreams in their diaries and letters to their governments. Girls cut their own hair. Girls campaign for human rights, for their future and all the futures that will come after. Girls love, and love, and love – each other, and themselves, and oh so many things that are sneered at for being the objects of that love.
