Summary: After being told about his crush on you by James, you go on a drive in the country with Thomas for a date and he behaves like a Southern gentleman. (PS, Alexander is your brother, so yeah. But there’s no sibling squabble over you and T-Jeffs though, it’s just briefly mentioned that Alexander wouldn’t like it.)

A/N: For all you Trekkies out there, I hope you caught what I did. You’re welcome. *wink wink* Plus, a teensy bit of a Heathers reference that you may find… And also, James and Aaron are together & Thomas lives by himself.

apps i couldn't live without

i recently got a new phone with way more storage space, which led to me actually getting more than the bare necessities as far as apps go. now that i have em, i can’t live without em.

1. reminders
this one comes automatic on iphones, but what i do now is i typed a different motivational quote in for each day to alert me at the same time every day. a little dose of easy inspiration at 6:20am :)

2. google drive
i do a lot of group projects and this is essential to share work if i need it right then. it’s also great if you’re running out of storage space on your phone. the app doesn’t take up more storage on your device no matter how much you put into it, so if you have pictures you don’t want to delete but don’t look at very often, you can sync them to your drive then delete them off your phone.

3. sworkit
i haven’t played with this one too much yet, but it’s an exercise app with difficulty ranges from beginner to advanced, and with different types of exercise (including yoga and stretches.) it’s super easy to use and to understand, and perfect for wake-me-up breaks at your desk.

4. youtube
john green crash courses. nuff said.

5. quizlet
just use it. oh, just go use it.

6. google translate
yeah, there’s an app for that. can’t tell you how many times i’ve been in a pinch just before spanish class and needing to do my translation work. problem solved right here.

7. duolingo
on the same note, this app. it can get a little annoying if you keep your notifications on, but it’s fun and easy, and has a variety of languages. i use it not only to brush up on spanish skills for school, but also because i’m going to italy, france, and poland this summer and i speak none of those languages. yet.

8. cnn
automatic notifications on breaking news, and very useful if you, say, forgot you have to give a speech analyzing the results the iowa caucus has on the gop next period, or a timed write on how the fbi ran a child porn site to catch criminals in an hour. (both of which have happened to me.)

9. powerschool
if your school uses it, you can check your grades and attendance records in real time!

10. dictionary.com
super helpful when you come across a word in your readings you don’t know, or need to double-check a word’s connotation before you use it in an essay. it doubles as a thesaurus, if you need that, too. (also, THE GAME)

I love you
If you think about it, those are the first words you hear out of your parents mouth right after you’re born
With the exception of your name
I love you
With a tired fatigued breath your mother still has enough strength to push out one more powerful word
I love you
Throughout your life you end phone calls with three words, you recite it to the fortunate person who has your heart
I love you
But sometimes I love you isn’t all sunshine and rainbows sometimes it’s a double connotation
I’m high, but I still love you
I didn’t mean to hit you, I promise I’ll change, I love you
I can’t live unless I have you, please don’t leave I love you
I’m sorry I cheated I still love you
How can something so beautiful have such a double meaning
And then I realized not everyone’s definition of love is the same
And I think that’s what hurts about love the most

7 Tips for Interview Success

1. Work on your nonverbal communication skills. Those are as important as the actual words you speak. Aim to come across as being warm, friendly, approachable, relaxed and self-confident.

2. Dress in accordance with the Company’s norms. If employees dress in a formal way, wear plain, business type clothing. If their style is more casual and relaxed, dress in more casual clothing, too. However, you should always look clean, tidy and smell fresh!

3. Listen carefully to what the interviewer says. Give them your full and undivided attention. Be attentive to their nonverbal cues, and communicate that you’ve heard what they have said.

4. Answer their questions as fully as you can – but don’t come across as being loud or talkative. Keep to the point, don’t ramble, and don’t say more than you need to say. However, include examples of your skills and experience to back up what you’re saying.

5. Remember that this is a professional setting. You need to keep a respectful distance. Be alert to appearing too forward and familiar. Let the interviewer take the initiative when it comes to asking questions and making conversation.

6. Only use appropriate language. Don’t swear, use slang, or any words that have double meanings or sexual connotations.

7. Have some knowledge of the Company and the position. Also, prepare a few brief questions to ask at the end so it looks as if you’re truly interested in the job (but don’t come across as being desperate to be hired.)
