do not have breakfast

anonymous asked:

This is sort of random but today's my birthday and I'm sort of down. Do you have any spell to lighten my mood or make me feel better? xxx

omg I am SURE this is late, I am so sorry!! I have a whole list of happy spells here but just treat yourself! take care of yourself and do things you love, blast your favorite music, have ice cream for breakfast! anything that makes you happy can be magical!

Your website says you love tea. What's your favorite kind and how do you take it? (asking the super important questions here...)


I like all kinds of tea, though I do have a few favorite go-to’s. For breakfast I like to have the strongest black tea I can lay my hands on, usually “Irish Breakfast” with a little milk and sugar. This is usually the only time I use milk in tea.

Later in the day I tend to go for oolong or green tea. I have a sweet tooth so sugar is usually involved, but I try not to go overboard and kill the flavor of the tea.

I’ve been introducing Tonio to teas and he’s been developing a taste for them too. He seems to prefer anything with a very strong flavor. We both like masala chai, and it’s always interesting to see the way that different places mix it.

Because people like to claim that people who like tea hate coffee, I actually also love coffee but it sets off nasty acid reflux for me. The wrong cup of coffee can make me lose sleep for a week, and the chest pain is terrible. Espresso doesn’t hurt me like that. Something about the very dark roast of the beans seems to take the stuff my stomach doesn’t like out. I still only have espresso drinks as a treat though!

how to start your day out right
  • get up early. yes, it’s super hard. yes, it’s painful. but it will help you start your day with enough time to have breakfast and do your morning routine without being rushed.
  • eat breakfast!!! many experts agree that this is the most important meal of the day. it tells your body that it’s time to get up and start going. if you’re trying to lose weight, don’t skip breakfast. it’s actually beneficial to eat breakfast because your metabolism will be get going and be faster for the rest of the day! eat a healthy breakfast, though– you want to give your body good fuel. you wouldn’t try to make your car run on water or something, and the same principle applies to your body. try to eat some fruits or vegetables with your breakfast!
  • HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE!!! I get that you might feel nauseous in the morning, but force yourself to drink a glass of water. headache? drink a glass of water and wait half an hour before you take an ibuprofen. a lot of the time, you’re actually just a little dehydrated. if you can’t eat and are going somewhere later, grab an apple or banana and put it in your bag for later. while you’re at it, fill up a refillable water bottle and put it in there, too. try to drink throughout the day!
  • look at your face in the mirror. is it greasy? does it have dried things around your eyes? does your skin feel gross? did you forget to take off your makeup last night? wash your face! even if none of the above are true! the water will wake you up and it will help clear your pores from all the stuff that built up overnight.
  • now look at your hair. greasy? clumping together? when was the last time you showered or took a bath? unless you showered last night, get in there and clean yourself off. work that shampoo into your hair, making sure the parts near your head get all soaped up, too. maybe even wash your hair twice, if you feel like it. (I like how it starts to make squeaky clean sounds after two washes!) when you’re done, get out of the shower, blow dry your hair, apply lotion to anywhere that needs it, put on some makeup/chapstick/etc, and feel ready to face the day!
  • well, sort of. time to get dressed, right? check the weather on your phone. what’s the highest temperature for the day? choose your clothing length accordingly. look at your calendar and check what you’re doing for the day to decide whether you want to dress formally or not. personally, I check the weather and calendar and set out clothes the night before so that I don’t have to do as much in the morning.
  • check what you have in your bullet journal or planner so far and make a mental plan for your priorities. (you can write it down if you’d like!) make sure you have an idea of how you’re going to manage your time.
  • go outside if you can! getting outside light in the morning helps reset your body’s clock and get you back on track for going to bed at night. also, vitamin D is really important! doctors recommend that we humans get at LEAST ten minutes of sunlight per day, at least where I live! check the stats for your local area and try to meet that goal every day. if you can’t, ask your doctor if you should take a vitamin D pill every morning.
  • take your meds! if you’re on a cumulative medication, such as antidepressants, it’s extremely important to try to take them at a similar time every day so that the levels in your body can stay regulated so that they can do their best to help you. if you haven’t, take a minute to look at your med’s requirements so that you know how you should take it. some say that you should take it with food, and others say to make sure you drink a full glass of water when you take it so that it can dissolve properly. whatever the requirements, try your best to meet them so that the meds can best help you!!!
  • another thing that can help you wake up is a little bit of exercise. you don’t have to run a marathon every morning– you can even just do a few simple stretches or yoga poses every morning. anything will help!

good luck!

the calendar // panic! at the disco

common day sentence starters.

What time is it? Do you know? ”  

Pardon me, did you drop this?

Could’ve been a beautiful day. Now the rain has ruined everything.

What are the chances, huh? What are the chances.

How are you doing today?

Did you need a ride?

Let’s go get a bite to eat. Come on, my treat.

Why the hell is it so damn hot outside?

Hello? Can you hear me?

Hey, miss/mister, do you possibly have directions to the nearest gas station?

Breakfast is and will always be the best part of every morning.

Last night was wild, wasn’t it?

Is there a problem?

No, I don’t wanna move. Too tired. Go without me.

I want to go to the beach. What do ya’ say?

DID YOU SERIOUSLY EAT ALL OF THE CHIPS?

If this traffic doesn’t clear up in the next ten seconds, I will literally scream out this window.

Headcanon that now that Jack and Bitty are out to their friends, they Skype while doing day-to-day stuff. Just because they can, and because it makes them feel closer to each other somehow.

Some days, Bitty sets his laptop on the kitchen table, or maybe on the countertop, and they talk while he is baking a couple of pies for the boys. Sometimes Bitty has his back to the camera, but Jack does not mind at all – watching Bitty move around that familiar kitchen as he tells Jack about something that happened to him in the morning is nice; he looks so at ease, and it makes Jack happy.

On the weekend, if Jack cannot drive to Samwell because he has things to do with the Falconers, they often have breakfast “together”. Jack goes for a run, sends Bitty a good morning text once he is back at his apartment and waits for him to wake up. And as soon as Bitty texts him back, they both grab their laptop, make their way to the kitchen and open Skype. They are not always alone, every now and then some members of the team will join them. But Bitty and Jack love those mornings, too; they are really fun even though they get chirped constantly because Bitty keeps forgetting about the bylaws and uses all kinds of pet names and Jack’s face lights up every single time that happens.

And you can bet they Skype during movie nights if Jack is free, or even when Bitty is simply hanging out with Lardo in her room.

They can do all that now, and it feels so good.

Waking up the Dragon

Mommy: *goes into dragon’s room and kisses their cheek* Dragon it’s time to wake up.
Dragon: *opens one eye, rolls over and groans*
Mommy: Dragon you have to get up.
Dragon: Nu uh.
Mommy: Yes you do.
Dragon: Nu uh.
Mommy: I guess mommy will have to make breakfast by herself and eat it by herself. *slowly walks out of dragon’s room*
Dragon: *jumps up and runs past mommy downstairs* Waaaaaaaffffflllllleeees!!
Mommy: I guess we’re having waffles for breakfast.


I couldn’t think of a gender neutral royal title that I liked. So I thought dragons go with princes and princesses so why not. Now a dragon pet might be way out there but who cares. I honestly tried.

anime fanfiction protip: people don’t really eat cereal in Japan. Just ain’t a thing they really do, you won’t find much of it there in general.

what they DO have a lot of for breakfast however is rice. At every meal more or less really. Lots of eggs, too, and sometimes even sausage or bacon or toast. No cereal tho

Waking up Princess

Mommy: *goes into princess’s room and kisses her cheek* Princess it’s time to wake up.

Princess: Nu uh.
