The Six Steps to Making a Phone Call

1. Realize you have to make phone call (immediate stomach dropping dread)

2. Procrastinate for at least an hour (ignoring the growing nausea)

3. Finally force yourself to hit the call button (enjoy the crescendo of panic as the phone rings and you desperately hope it goes to voicemail)

4. Suddenly another human is speaking to you with a slightly distorted mechanical voice (and suddenly you answer with a voice that doesn’t feel like your own)

5. Slight panic as the real you feels trapped in your own head and clearly someone else is speaking with your mouth because the person speaking is nice and polite and seems totally friendly and calm. (also start to panic as the mechanical one gives you any important details because Friendly-Not-You is saying stuff like “Right- totally got it” when Real-You most certainly DOES NOT GOT IT)

6. The phone call ends and you are full of slight skin prickling euphoria. You did- it’s over. (you also realize you have no memory of the past ten minuets you were one the phone. The small fragments you do recall are playing on repeate. You look down at the notes you tried to take- all that is written if today’s date and and series of lines that look like Chinese characters. You don’t know Chinese)

Libra moon: “There’s no hot people at this party, what’s the point?”

Scorpio moon: “Crime shows bore me, I always know who did it within like 5 minutes.”

Sagittarius moon: “I dropped 2 tabs of acid yesterday and became the best artist of all time.”

Capricorn moon: “Fuck you, I could beat Gordon Ramsay in a cook-off any day.”

Aquarius moon: “The state of our country right now…no actually, the state of our WORLD right now terrifies me.”

Pisces moon: “I don’t care that it’s just a game, you can’t leave those dogs in such small cages like that!”

Steam Cleansing ♨

Since incense makes me sneeze, I’ve been resorting to a different method of cleansing lately - steam cleansing! It’s exactly what it sounds like, using steam to cleanse your space. 


  • A pot, to be used for boiling water
  • Essential oils of your choice (about 50 drops total)
  • Water


  1. Add about 2 cups of water to your pot depending upon how large it is
    1. Otherwise, just fill the pot about halfway with water
  2. Add 50 drops of whichever essential oils you choose 
  3. Turn on your stove, and let the water boil 
  4. You should start to smell the essential oils throughout your house in very little time
  5. When the water has almost completely evaporated, turn your stove off
  6. Let the pot cool down and proceed to wash it as you would usually do with your dishes
  7. The scent tends to linger all day, if not longer
  8. Repeat as necessary :)

Essential oils for cleansing:

  • Anise
  • Camphor
  • Cedarwood
  • Citrus oils (bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, lime, orange, tangerine)
  • Dragon’s Blood
  • Hyssop
  • Lavender
  • Oregano
  • Peppermint
  • Pine
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Sandalwood
  • Spearmint
  • Thyme

Some essential oils may cause respiratory irritation in both humans and animals, and many essential oils should not be used if pregnant or if you have other various medical problems. Please consult your physician if you have any questions about the use of essential oils.

Aromatherapy, Memory, & Magick

170223 BTS M Countdown Pre-recording - Fanaccount Compilation

1. Jungkook was super hyper today. When the staff said “We’ll recording now~”, he said “Imme-recording?” (immediately recording / 바녹 (바로 녹화)) and another time when the staff said that, he went “Drop the beat~”.

2. Jungkook sang “Maybe you have~ Eaten lamb skewers~” (양꼬치~ 먹나봐요~) in the same tone as the line “Maybe cherry blossoms have bloomed~” in ‘Spring Day’.

3. Seokjin asked the fans “Did you eat?” right after he went in and they replied “No~”, so he went “I ate sweet and sour chicken~”.

4. For the third recording of ‘Spring Day’, there was a part where the cherry blossom petals cascade poured down. After that part ended, Taehyung & Jungkook gathered the paper petals together, then sang “Shalala~” and danced. (T/N: from 'Fading Starlight’ by Bye Bye Sea, the “Shalala” part is what BTS sang shortly in 'Run BTS!’ episode 11 after changing into uniforms)

5. Jungkook kept following the vacuum cleaner that was used to clean the paper petals around and even imitated its noise.

6. Fans only got to see the pre-recording of 'Spring Day’’s latter part but BTS performed the whole song for the fans after the recording.

7. Jimin and Jungkook’s abs got exposed in 'Not Today’.

8. After seeing the fans entering Taehyung said “It’s gonna be fun now~” (he used the word 맛 / flavor). So Seokjin asked “What flavor is that?” and Namjoon saw that and said “Is there even a flavor that hyung doesn’t know?”

iconic moments in the get down part 2:

  • shao drop kicking some rich white boy who used the phrase ‘nigga coke’
  • rara trying to ask a girl out
  • dizzee realizing and admitting to himself that he’s in love with thor
  • shao’s real name is curtis!!!!!
  • rara using star wars metaphors to bring the dj kingdoms together
  • Shaolin Fantastic: Adventures in White Boy Land
  • the iconic scene with all the crews and kingdoms coming together to defend the get down

another thing that I think about a lot is how absolutely terrible han solo is at calculating when he’s going to make planetfall

which is not to say han solo is bad with numbers, han solo is one of those self-taught savants, who can do complicated interest calculations in his head; what han solo cannot do is the finicky interstellar calculus that tells you if you start out at 1800 hours local time, on a planet with a 90 hour sidereal day, and travel at 9 parsecs per hour, skipping between the Terrabe Bypass and the Alui Corridor, you’ll make planetfall on Tatooine around 0700 local time, just when everybody’s headed out to the noonday meal.

that’s the kind of shit he hates.

it also results in an unending string of hilarious misadventures wherein han solo arrives at precisely the wrong time anywhere he goes and ends up 1) preventing the kidnapping of a young duke’s son because everyone else was asleep, 2) dropping through atmo at the exact right moment to stop an Imperial rollout of monitoring droids, because he throught the no fly order wasn’t in effect until the next day, 3) hanging around at high noon, waiting for jabba to come back from his daily nap, only to be waylaid by a man claiming to be a jedi and his wide-eyed kid, 4) amusing leia to no end as he sits at one of the mess hall tables, biting his thumb and trying to work out four-dimensional calculus with a flimsi napkin and an old-fashioned stylus, 5) annoying his son to no end as he was late for everything, yes, dad, everything—uncle luke said you arrived four days after I was born.

better late than never, han says with a grin, every time. and anyway, your mom was on a planet with a very short solar cycle, messed up everything.

for his 40th birthday, leia buys him a top of the line galactic calculator, which only needs the local time, and then galactic coordinates of origin and destination to estimate the local time of arrival.

she finds han at the kitchen table three days later, biting his thumb and working out the time to the outer rim with a flimsi napkin, and a stylus.

Post-Depressive-Episode Bath Spell

A cleansing, purifying, and uplifting spell for the turning point after a depressive episode or I suppose any difficult period of time, when you want to distance yourself from past suffering and invite joy back in. **

you will need:
~ 6-8 handfuls of salt
~ 3-8 drops of eucalyptis oil
~ 8-12 drops of tea tree oil
~ 20-25 drops of sweet orange oil
~ 2-3 drops from a peaceful body of water like a lake, lagoon, or bay (optional)

~ pour salt onto the bottom of the tub in the shape of this bindrune (a combination of Dagaz/Daybreak and Wunjo/Joy):

You can also draw this bindrune on your wrist for some extra oomph if you like.

~ drop the essential oil into the salt: eucalyptus in the center, tea tree on the outmost corners, and sweet orange along the lines of the middle X, then put the drops of lagoon water in your right palm and sprinkle it over the bindrune

~ run the bathwater nice and hot but not scalding - now is the time to light candles or incense if you like, or any other beginning-of-spell rituals you may have.  maybe put on your favorite music, tv show, or audio book, whatever will make you happy and relaxed during the soaking-in portion of the spell

~ once the salt bindrune is submerged and the tub is about halfway full, stir the salt into the waters with your right hand while focusing on joy and relief and fresh beginnings

~ climb on in and soak for 20-40min.  let go, relax, let yourself really feel happy again after all those days in darkness

It’s always better in my experience to do bath spells right before bed or when you have a chance to nap afterward bc hot salt water can really take it out of ya.  sleep is restorative, too, so embrace it as the after-effects of the spell

Also, you can sub in any citrus-y oil or even zest or juice for the sweet orange oil if you don’t have it; I just happened to have a bottle from my sister, but the idea is to get the citrus element in there

I took the time to do this for myself yesterday afternoon and it was exactly what I needed!!  

**disclaimer: I know you can’t magick yourself out of a depressive episode, this is for when you already feel yourself coming out of it for whatever reason, to sort of help you along with that process


Sea Magick Charging and Diffusion Box

1) Get a clear box. A pretty one from an antique store or second hand store is best
2) Collect items associated with your intent such as: seashells, shark teeth, sea glass, coral, crystals, dried herbs or flowers, driftwood, or lava rock
3) Fill the bottom of the box with sand or sea salt and place your collected items inside
4) Find a shell which has a hole that can be filled and essential oils of your choice. I chose jasmine, rosemary, and eucalyptus for awareness and truth in a relationship
5) You can use a piece of tissue rolled up, fabric scraps, or cotton balls as your diffuser. Drop your essential oil combination (you only need 1 drop per oil, or 2 for a lighter scent) onto your diffuser padding. Then stuff this inside the shell. Be careful not you get the oils on your hands because it could cause an allergic reaction. You could use a stick or pencil to push it inside. Don’t push the padding too far into the shell or you wont be able to remove it.

Leave the lid to your diffuser box open to scent your space or keep it closed to charge the items inside. You can place a stone, charm, sigil, or other object you wish to charge with you intent inside the box.

An alternative is to use sage essential oil and use sea salt instead of sand. The items inside the box will be cleansed



I finally came up with my own recipe for black salt! I’ve been wanting to make my own for ages now and this is what I came up with. I love that everybody has their own take on it and I like looking at the inventive ways people have come up with so I thought I’d share my own.

It contains:

-Pink Himalayan Salt (for protection from evil, especially in and around the home. Attracts abundance, prosperity and good health). 

-Ground Chia Seeds (for protection, particularly useful to counteract back-biting, gossip and ill-wishing)

-1 to 2 drops of Bergamot Essential Oil (to dispel unwanted thoughts and emotions and negative energies. Lends protection and relief from grief, rage , poor self-confidence and melancholy) 

-Ashes of a protective sigil

-Incense ashes  

Then all I did was burn up the sigil paper and grind it together with everything. I put some in a bottle for my apothecary and put the excess in a bag for future use. 

the end of this month marks 2 years since exo dropped exodus. it’s been 2 years since they came back after Hell Era™ n delivered unto us what is arguably the greatest album of all time. it’s been 2 years since exo reinvented the music industry yet again n the decided to continuously one-up themselves with every single release after that. honestly. the iconography

excuses ive heard from people who did not want to watch the get down
  • idk, the plot looks boring –> it’s about ambitious young people who try to find a place in the society they were thrown into and i think anyone can relate to it
  • i watch too many shows! –> bruh, the first part of the season is only 6 episodes. i’m sure you can plan it in you schedule
  • i don’t know about hip hop or disco! –> me neither and it did not stop me from understanding the plot!
  • i don’t like musicals! –> it’s not Les Misérables, there is only like 4 major scenes where the characters sing/rap and it’s not corny in any way - it makes sense and the songs are hella catchy and amazing

so time to wake up y’all! part 2 is dropping on April 7th! just give it a try, i swear you’re gonna love it 

humans are weird

what about games, then? we have a HUUUUUUUGE ass variety of games, to be played alone, in groups, in competition or in collaboration: chance games (dices, roulette, certain card games, rock paper scissor), board games (from chess to monopoly to Colt Express and the Legends of Andor and Raise your Goblets and Patchwork and Snakes and Ladders), to videogames, to team games (soccer, rugby, basketball), to kids’ games (tag, the witch of colours ecc.), to roleplaying games, and many, many more. 

Like, imagine aliens stumbling upon humans who’re into a very hard game of rock paper scissor: they’re waving their fists madly, making signs with the fingers and yelling to and at each other, and they declare a winner every three finger gestures. They are told “we’re playing, don’t you worry, we’re not going to kill each other”. 

then they stumble upon a group having an extremely heated match of Uno, cursing each other as they drop +4 and +2 and dammit I just had declared Uno!!! again, they’re told “we’re playing, don’t you worry, we’re not going to kill each other”. 

then they see chess, where there are only two people playing mainly in silence, their brows furrowed in concentration. 

aliens are utterly confused. these two do not look like they are going to kill each other, what the hell??

 pairing: jungkook // you

 word count: 6k

 warnings: none

Description: Your grades are slipping too low for your liking, you’re reprimanded by the student council president, Jeon Jungkook has got you feeling some type of way, and additionally, you agree to go to his basketball game. What could go wrong?

A/N: the first fic oops i don’t really know if this blog will go in the fic direction, i’ll see how it goes. feedback is appreciated!!

You slam your locker door shut after you throw in your gym clothes, breathing out of your nose as slowly as you can as you lean against the locker, hands clenched so tightly the veins were visible.

“Woah, what’s up with you today, Y/N?” Tzuyu, Jackson, and Yerim,  three of your closest friends, gather around you. All three of them have concerned looks on their faces.

“That little…” you mutter angrily, looking up. Tzuyu’s eyebrows rise at your frustrated look.

“Hey, I asked you, are you okay?” She pokes your shoulder. You wordlessly yank out a rumpled piece of paper out of one of the many folders in your arms and flap it in front of her face.

“Just look at this,” you seeth, eyes smoldering. “My average for physics dropped. All because I wasted my time to help Golden Boy study. How am I supposed to be valedictorian now?”

At that, Yerim rolls her eyes as Tzuyu scans the paper. “Are you serious? You’re upset about, like a 2% drop? I have a 87 for your information.” Jackson just snorts.

“You should know how Y/N gets about her grades, Yerim. She’s ranked one, so obviously she has to keep her grades up if she wants to keep her ranking.”

“Well,” Tzuyu says breezily as she hands the piece of paper back to you, “I don’t get what you have against Jeon Jungkook. I mean, he’s actually really nice, smart, and good looking. Oh, and athletic since he’s also the basketball team captain now that Yoongi is injured.”

“He asked you nicely if you could help him too,” Yerim adds. “Always a first.”

“You don’t get it,” you grit out, brushing the hair falling over your eyes out of your face. The four of you begin to make your way back to your homeroom classrooms, with Jackson bidding a farewell as he is a year older.

“One, he’s not attractive Tzuyu-” you begin, disgusted (you’re lying to yourself but no way were you admitting that), “and two, I helped him for two hours studying for that huge test, and while I only got a 94, he got a perfect. His grades are better than mine at this rate. It’s not fair.”
