Any advice for teenagers just becoming adults?

Hm.  Let me think…

1. Learn to cook.  Basic stuff. You don’t need to get too fancy with it - learn to make rice, noodles, things that are easily prepped.  Don’t neglect or feel ashamed about your microwave.  That thing is a time saver and does a damned good job making your life easier.

2. Keep a budget.  Learn how much goes in and how much comes out.  Map out what bills you have and how much money you got coming in.  Prioritize your financies. Make a line item in your budget for “me money” if you can. This is your blow money.  Use it wisely and for those times when shit seems bad and you really just need to go see a movie with a friend or buy the thing.  Keep cash on hand too.  Plastic is great and all but not every situation allows it to be used.

3. Self care is important.  Don’t neglect you.  Whatever that involves, take care of yourself.

4. Remember that libraries exist.  Free wifi, books, programming and many other amenities we all take for granted and forget about.  Most libraries now embrace online digital services too like hoopla.

5. Read.  Watch movies.  Listen to music.  Enrich your mind and learn things, either for substance or pleasure.  Never pass up a learning experience or a chance to experience something new.  

6. Make connections, social or otherwise.  Knowing the right person or resource can make a world of difference. 

7. Set boundaries.  This bit is important - high school is over with and you are an adult and entering into a society that has a shit ton of expectations for you. Setting your boundaries for yourself and those in your world can save you a lot of energy, time and effort - never let anyone violate them and if they do, let them go.  It’s easy to say, I know, and in practice it can be hard but trust me, it is very important to keep true to yourself and your boundaries.

8.  If you go out to a restaurant or a bar, tip your server. Be good to service people and retail workers.  

9. Trust your gut.  Instinct is something we often neglect.  Don’t.

10. If you live with your folks and continue to do so after graduation or becoming an adult, there is no shame in staying on until you are financially able and ready to go into the world.  Of course, everyone’s situation is different and circumstances can prevent this but I feel like so many people are still having the whole “you turn 18, you get out of your parent’s home” mentality driven their way.  There is no shame in living at home.  

11. If you live in a decent sized town or city, learn what you have for public transporation.  It’s a wonderful resource if you have it.

12. Find a “safe space”.  What do I mean by this?  Well, find a place (your home, the local library, a friend’s house, a park - something easily accessible to you and safe) that you can go and just be you.  A place to clear your head and focus.  Somewhere you don’t have to worry.  Everyone needs a sanctuary.

13. Carry a knife and/or multitool on you.  No, I’m serious.  This piece of advice has saved my ass more times than I can count.  And while I’m thinking of it, carry these things too: a list of any medications and medical conditions you have, emergency contact info, a bit of cash, identification.  

14. Make friends.  Keep those friends from your childhood if you can but only if they are decent adult friends too.  Friends make all the difference in the world.

And finally…

15. Pay it forward.  If good comes your way, do good in return.  Just… don’t be a dick.  I can’t stress this enough.  People may be shitty and the world may seem dark but cast your own little light into it and life will be that much more rewarding. 

I really hope all that makes sense.  

anonymous asked:

hey I'm a chick and I really wanna skate but I'm scared people will say shit that I'm not good blah blah, since I assume you are great at skateboarding any tips please?

Everyone isn’t good at first! The fact of the matter is that you want to skate and that is all that matters! Don’t listen to anyone that talks shit on you. Everyone has to start somewhere, that’s how life is. As a man, I am sorry that skateboarding is a male dominated culture and industry that is often disrespectful to women, even those that share the same interest as these guys. However, that is exactly why if you want to skate, then you must. You have the opportunity to show others that skateboarding is not just for men, and you have the opportunity to enrich your body and mind with a very fun and rewarding (in my opinion the most fun and rewarding) thing on the planet. There are lots of amazing female pros, and there are lots of awesome women on here running great skate blogs! In the words of the great band Propagandhi: “don’t let the fuckers drag you down.”

My tips? Skate with friends who you are comfortable with and trust at first so you don’t feel like you have to prove anything to anyone or like you are being judged. Skate all the time, as often as you can! Don’t underestimate how great for you skating flat ground is, it helps you get your tricks on lock. Be brave; sometimes it’s scary but it’s always worth it- it’s just part of the game. And finally, just have fun. If you’re enjoying yourself, who cares what some asshole at the skate park says. As long as you learn park etiquette and aren’t in people’s way don’t worry about what anyone says. Lance Mountain said “Skateboarding doesn’t make you a skateboarder: not being able to stop skateboarding makes you a skateboarder.” I can’t really think of a better way to put it.

I hope that helps! Keep me updated. I’ll gladly offer any other advice if you need it. Happy shredding.   

tinaseh  asked:

Okay so for like 10 months now I've been trying to learn hiragana and nothing seems to be working because somehow, because I can only write out the first column, and the k column, but if a see a chart for the basic set of hiragana I can pronounce, and recognize pretty well, but I can't seem to get past the basic set, I can barely remember vocabulary, I can't remember stroke order, I can't remember any katakana and kanji, I can't even start a conversation let alone a sentence. (Continued).

Cont. I know have terrible memory, & that learning a new language probably wasn’t a good idea. But nothing seems to work, and I’m thinking of giving up, because I met people like kimonotime on tumblr, who can read, write, and can have conversations with people and it only took her a year. While I can’t even get the basic set of hiragana down in 10 months. I new it was going to be hard, but now it seems like I have to add learning a new language to the list of things I can’t do. Do you have tips?

This is such a common worry for many learners of a language, I find. “I don’t know enough despite spending [X amount of time] learning [this language]”. And that’s regardless of what level they are at…

As such, I’ve kind of covered this a few times (so please read!!):

So now I’m going respond to this in a more personal way than I perhaps previously have…

(I can already tell this is going to be a very long response, sorry!).

I actually have a few friends who I cannot believe have such bad memories (without having conditions that affect the memory), yet are learning Japanese and have steadily picked it up at their various paces, who now can have conversations when forced into those situations - when they would have originally said they could not do so.

So bad memory or not, you can still do it. Don’t add it to that Can’t Do list!! I’ve been learning for six years, and the correct spelling for many kanji and even how to write kana at times can still leave my head fairly regularly.

You say you’ve been learning for 10 months, but that doesn’t tell me anything. What is important is, what have you been doing during those ten months?

Are you… trying to read some things in Japanese everyday? Speaking to friends and/or penpals in Japanese (in person/on Skype/etc) every week? Keeping a blog/diary in Japanese everyday/each week? Trying to speak Japanese when alone? Singing Japanese songs (even kid’s songs)? Playing games on your phone/a Nintendo DS to help with your writing everyday?

Because it’s all about repetition and practice. The more you repeat, the more it’ll stick. When you’re first starting out in particular, I think drilling information like that is so important. Also try to read out loud as much as you can when you encounter any Japanese. E.g., ドーナツが好きです。 (“Doonatsu ga -ki desu”). Even if you don’t understand it, keep that practice up. Then, if you’re online, get Rikai-kun or some other browser hover dictionary so that you can hover over words like “好き” and read the hiragana of it there(= すき = suki).

You can be learning for ten years, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to know an extremely high, academic level of the language. It can be hard to juggle other responsibilities with learning another language.

I’ve been learning for six years, but - during that time, I’ve been studying various other subjects, and also worked and regularly looked after a baby [my brother] for over a year, as well as made time for socialising. So it feels silly to say I’ve been learning for that amount of time because - overall - the amount of time I put towards it just wasn’t enough to really get too far. Not for me at least. Language doesn’t sit in my brain as easily as learning some other things does, but I know this and so six years with life in-between is just not enough.

But, unlike some, I don’t really think that’s something that should deter us, I think it’s something that we should take into consideration before we start beating ourselves up over our abilities. Give yourself a break, people!!

Learning should be an amazing thing, and it should be fun. Little by little, slowly or not, you are enriching your mind. If something is killing your fun, simply shake it off. =)

Although, believe me, I am impatient when it comes to wanting to become good at something. So I understand that it’s hard to accept, and think the beginning of learning something is the worst part. I hate it. =P

I’d also like to add, unlike most people I see on the Internet who study Japanese, I am a mess. Ha ha! Whilst they seem to give the impression that they have very efficient ways of studying, and are highly motivated and happy overall… that is not me. Some see my blog and think otherwise, but I always try to stress the truth of the matter. I would say I often hit points of despair where the only way is up. Ha ha!

I’m currently close to finishing a year-long study abroad in Japan, and can safely say that my confidence has gradually been decreasing during this time.

It made me question whether I wanted to continue as well, and I did have a moment where I thought, “No. I’m tired of feeling bad at something. It’s too draining”. However, it was only really because I was looking at it in terms of my university (take note: I am not doing well academically at all! Always on the edge of failure, or actually failing).

So I decided to continue, whether my language abilities are ever ‘enough’, a poor level or not… I’m not gonna waste energy getting down about it anymore, because I’m still happy learning it and I know I’ll never stop anyways. So I’m going to continue doing my best, and just try to enjoy myself regardless of any academic struggles.

I don’t think it will ever feel like I know enough, but I feel lacking in even my native language, so I’m not too bothered as I can still communicate more than effectively in it, so who cares that I can’t use a few fancy words. I think it’ll be the same for me with Japanese too.

But I once read that confidence is a by-product of success, and I believe this is so true. However, what happens when you do not view yourself as ever being successful? Because people are not always able to see their triumphs, as they don’t necessarily view it in a personal way.

Same goes for so many things.

E.g., for many people, brushing their teeth is a very simple task. However, for others - despite their physical capabilities, it can be a real challenge. So if they do it and feel a sense of achievement from it, and even have a little celebration over it, good for them!

I don’t think anyone should put another down over things that don’t come as ‘naturally’ for them as it may do for others. We all have our struggles, to varying degrees over all sorts of things. We cannot always comprehend each other’s struggles, but we have to at least try and respect them because they are as real as our own.

It’s all relative. Picking on someone or even yourself for not being able to do something someone else can do is not helpful, and it’s often just mean. You should never make others feel less than you for not reaching your irrelevant expectations. Similarly, it can be problematic for you to adopt their incompatible expectations.

Not saying I don’t believe in aiming high. I just believe that you should become aware of when you’re aiming too high for yourself and feel absolutely no shame for lowering the bar in a way that’s suited to you, regardless of how it is in relation to others.

So you might need an extra 10 months to get somewhere someone else could get in 2, but so what? Ease the pressure, as I presume you’re not on a strict time limit anyways. Remember that you are not alone in it either, many are in the same position.

I’m sure there are some people who would say Give up, and will disagree with what I’m saying. But I don’t know of any reason to stop if you’re still interested in it? It might get frustrating sometimes, especially because the more you know, the more you will realise you don’t know. However, with more and more practice, you will be highly likely to keep improving regardless of whether you notice that or not.

And there will be highs as well as lows!

Sorry to both focus on the lows and talk about myself so much, and I hope this is not too depressing or irrelevant to your situation. But I wanted to talk about myself as someone who has not achieved quickly or as well as some others within the time frame that I have been learning. You just gotta keep going, and remember to enjoy it.

My science tutor once told me, “Never let how bad you think you are at something stop you from pursuing your interests. There is nothing wrong with keeping it up in your spare time at the very least”.

It has stuck with me for ages. I dropped so many aspirations, so many interests, etc, just because I thought I could never be good or successful in them and/or because I sucked at them in school (French, the only language I learnt in school, was my worst subject! x).

Slowly but surely, I’m following what my tutor told me, and started to embrace things that I always wanted to pursue yet never felt good enough for. I apply this way of thinking to many things in my life now. And I can get nervous, scared, embarrassed and feel like I’ve made a few mistakes along the way… but ultimately, I think I’m becoming more at peace and thus happier with myself as a result. So my advice is to just keep going, and it’ll eventually work out.

But the more frustrated you become about it, the harder it will become (at least, in my experience). So breathe! And, to be honest, if you’re in that mindset, you could become a genius in the language and probably still never appreciate yourself for it because someone will always be ‘better’ than you. So leave the negativity at the door, x.

Hope that made sense, and hope that helped if you were able to struggle through this essay of a reply! xx.


This is kind of a crude example, but it cheered me up when I was struggling with being slow period of Japanese learning. “Language is Peeing”.


Totally agree with this, I’ve been ‘learning’ for 10yrs, but if you add the approximate study hrs, it’s about 500, 350 hrs of which were in the last year, so I was realllly lazy for 9 years! Try Memrise.com and scritter app for drilling hiragana!

Pieces of Advice.

Just be honest to yourself. Being alone smoking some blunts and listening to fuckin good music or reading the shit out of your fav book is so much better than staying with people you do not really like at all having to talk bout shit isn’t worth to waste even one fucking thought on, just cause you’re afraid to miss sth. You should not be afraid of being alone, you should enjoy it as much as you can. You’re free to potter at things enriching your mind. That’s the best thing you can do.

Sleepover friday! Do you have any tips for someone who will be at home almost all summer? To beat boredom :)


  • Explore your hometown and its surroundings. Honestly, one thing I always regret doing is never taking the time to explore more and find cool spots to hang out. You’re probably gonna have loads of free time, so grab a backpack, put on some sneakers, and go wonder around!
  • Try and find some local museums. Spend your lazy summer afternoons in art galleries and science exhibits. Enrich your mind, learn new things, find a new artist! It’s always really fun to do! 
  • Grab your camera and go around taking little snaps of everything that you find worthy! Photography is such a fun hobby, and it’s always really nice to walk around taking pictures, especially late in the afternoon, at twilight, sunsets, and sunrises!
  • Pick up a new hobby. Maybe buy some old guitar and teach yourself how to play! Take up watercolors, learn how to journal! Be creative, you’ll have the time to!
  • If you write, work on that. Make some coffee, sit outside, and write. A book, a poem, a short story, a song, whatever makes you happy! Writing is an incredible way to pass time. 
  • Exercise! Go for jogs to new places, have long swims, give your body the exercise it needs and might not get during the school year. It’ll sound horrible at first, but once you get into the habit of jogging, it’s hard to stop! It puts you in such a great state of mind, peaceful, alert, alive. Make the most of it! 
  • Meet new people. Summer’s an amazing way to meet new people! Say hi  to that cute person at the bookstore, strike up conversation with strangers, meet new humans and learn their stories. 
  • Find new music, go to small gigs, make the most out of bands! Go on youtube, listen to something new. Try and see which festivals or bands are happening near you, and make the most of that! Concerts are so fun, and many small bands have cheap gigs that are the most fun you’ll ever have. Take advantage of that!

Blackbeard had held her for so long he almost feared he’d never sleep to her gentle creaking again.
But Killian stood now proudly at the bow, staring down the length of her, good hand pressed to the warm wood and a smile etched upon his face. Smee was by his side, as usual, his red hat a flair of colour in the dark night.
“Sir, are we to sail?” he asked expectantly.
Killian nodded. “In time, Smee. First I have some business to attend to in port.”
Smee, probably assuming some manner of debauchery, left with a “yes, sir”.

|A great idea! A change of space can often help enrich and boost your mind.

No power over others;
All you get is truth
And the freedom from the false.

I know it's hard to generalize a whole group, but if you had to pick one class that Ravenclaws prefer above all others, what would it be?

hmm that’s tricky! Like you say it depends a lot on the individuals but I feel like maybe potions is a good shout? I think ravenclaws would find it very satisfying to invest time into something and actually produce a physical object at the end of it. But then on the other hand I think a lot of people would love history of magic because that’s just learning for learning’s sake, there’s no real practical value to it but it’s just about enriching your mind and your way of thinking. I also think arithmancy might be a popular favourite 

idk it’s difficult to say especially since people’s favourite subjects are so often heavily influenced by their teachers, and binns and snape are amongst the worst teachers at hogwarts haha
