every single detail

✨ SWV IN DALLAS FANACCOUNT ✨

Before I go into detail with my experience at shinee world v I wish to say that I had the privilege of being present at a once in a lifetime event.

An account as such should not only be worthy of being reflected upon within the upcoming years, but indeed deserves to be shared and explained in a form of words. So, that the memory of what occurred is survived through documentation not only for my own self, those who attended, but most importantly for the individuals who were not fortunate enough to attend. The main motive for me wanting to provide every single detail even down to the most minor event is for fellow shawols who were not able to go, and for those who may never get the opportunity to see shinee overall.

This is for you, and I hope that I can be as thorough with explaining my experience to the best of my ability, so that as you read through this you to feel as if you were present.

yknow you can draw trans people who look like human beings right??

like you know that we’re people, not just wild exaggerations of individual physical qualities that are known to cause the most dysphoria???

like, for example, you can draw a trans guy without warping the parameters of physical possibility to make him the most hyper feminine person ever even though you never focus on breast and hip size even close to that much when you draw women????

and you can draw a trans girl without making extra special care to add in every single little detail of her not passing even though you have never in your art career drawn a guy with a beard or broad shoulders or a noticeable bulge or whatever?????

like we’re just humans…… we look like other humans….. like you can just draw a human… why are you making things that look like you modded oblivion too much just because the word trans is involved

Very late, but I wanted to get this dang thing finally over and done with ;A; For Day 4 of Voltron Week: Day Off/Vacation. The Paladins have some time off so Allura starts teaching them one of her favorite Altean pastimes: dancing! 

Meanwhile Coran… the little princess he took care of is not so little any more, and all these Altean dances bring back memories and it really hits them both that they are the last to pass on their traditions to others…sorry my thoughts got a bit heavy– also! First time drawing Coran!!

Pieces of Kubo’s recent and thought-provoking interview

as originally transcribed and posted by jaqi (@gays_on_ice on twitter)  - a million thanks for sharing these: 

We already know how much attention is paid to every single detail of every single episode, and Kubo’s responses perfectly highlight that. She introduced Otabek near the end of the season to keep us stimulated and thirsty for more. The producers/writers also placed hints and messages throughout the play that constantly challenge what we accept as fact. For example, all this time we assumed Viktor was Yurio’s idol and inspiration, but Kubo’s words make us wonder about that statement. What if Yuuri Katsuki is someone that Yurio looks up to or cherishes deeply? What if Viktor isn’t?  … The list goes of what ifs goes on

 One of the first things I learned in my freshman year is the absolute need to study every single day. Even if there is no big test or assignment around the corner, reviewing your classes daily is the only way to make sure you are strengthening your knowledge on whatever you are learning, as well as filling in any gaps on unknown material that was lectured before. For weeks (and months) I was certain that people who told me I needed to study every day were just very unorganized people or were frightening me on purpose. However, if you are taking a course heavy in information like Law, you will quickly understand that it will be very difficult to remember every single detail that was lectured in multiple subjects, on the long run – and, in the end, you are also tested on the small details and not only on the big overall scheme of each class. If I could go back to my first semester, I would really push myself harder and organize my days to be able to review my previous classes.

2.

Being a coffee hater throughout high school, I was always sure that I would never like the taste of it in my life. However, as soon as I got into my second year of college, I found out that the only way to survive a few of my classes was to drink an expresso beforehand. My addiction to coffee began as a need to survive. Now that I look back, my first year in college probably would have turned out better if I had more energy in class and while doing my assignments. However, I still try my hardest to never drink more than one cup a day – that really keeps my energy levels up, without creating addiction.

3.

One of the things no one told me before going to Law School was the ridiculous amount of money I would spend on textbooks every single semester. Each one of my classes requires one or two mandatory textbooks, plus statute law and a bunch of optional readings that most of the time you end up buying because they are nowhere to be found in the library. Also, since Law is constantly being developed and changed, buying second hand books is not the best idea - most of the legal references in those books are probably outdated.
I remember that in my first year of Law School I refused to buy most of the textbooks the professors required me to, and I tried my hardest to study only with my class notes. Well, guess what? That ended up, as expected, in poor grades. The problem with Law is that 50% of our grade is the result of how hard we work at home. In class the professor doesn’t lecture ALL of the material we need to learn; they just summarize it as best as they can and highlight a few important things that they find relevant. However, in the final exam, all those details and footnotes in the textbooks will prove really useful to solve the cases and if you didn’t invest in your textbooks in the beginning of your term, you will not be able to use that information in your answers, which really harms your grade.

4.

That takes me to the next point. For me, the best learning method is preparing all classes beforehand, be it lectures or discussion based classes. I only realized this in the end of my second year in college - and I think it makes a huge difference in your overall performance in class; if your professor uses the Socratic method to teach, preparing your classes thoroughly beforehand is absolutely essential! 

Basically, if you anticipate most of what is going to be taught in your class, you will have most of the work done for that specific group of topics or information. By taking your own notes to class and completing them with what the information that the professor adds during the lecture, you will be able to reinforce your knowledge on the subject, finishing any incomplete arguments that you have written down and also letting you participate in class, asking questions on the thematic you’ve studied and discussing it with your professor and classmates. Also, preparing classes beforehand will let you organize your time better, scheduling a certain time to prepare a certain topic and/or chapter.

5.

Unfortunately, I found it almost impossible to prepare classes and do all of this homework while I was handwriting my notes. If I could turn back in time and change something during my time in college, I would certainly stop spending so much time making everything pretty and would start typing it all. I am a big fan of handwriting notes - I love pens, stationery and also the handwriting part in itself. However, when I started getting an excessive workload, insisting on handwriting all of my preparatory notes, completing them in class and also solve and summarize case law by hand was hurting my grades, my social life and my stress levels (and my hand, lol). I then had to make the hard decision to give up on all of my pretty stationery and start bringing my laptop to class.

I still handwrite a few notes, especially when I use the column method (which you can find more about here), but I am actually happy now that I have made the change – I can be much more productive and organized while saving a huge amount of time for all the other things I enjoy doing.

6.

Finally, and I think this is the most important piece of advice I can give you: some people enter college with a very specific mind-set on what they want to do with their lives. While you are reading this, there is a huge possibility that you have already thought about a certain career; maybe you are picking only the classes that you think will help down that career path, as well.

However, never ignore all the other options that will be laid out for you. I can personally speak about my own experience: when I entered Law School back when I was 18 (I am now 21), I had a very specific idea of what I wanted to accomplish after I graduated - I was sure I wanted to be a judge. As soon as I got into my second year and started studying the most basic principles of contract law, I was 100% sure that I had actually changed my mind, and that it was imperative to purse contract law. Then, in my 5th semester, I started studying Tax Law - I still remember thinking that Tax Law was it and I was then decided to pursue it for my master’s degree; but then, I was able to get an internship in a law firm, in the Intellectual Property Law department; and you know what? I changed my mind again

So it’s perfectly normal to change your mind along the way; you are not less worthy of college just because you are still not sure of what you want to do career wise. Also, changing majors is fine - it’s just a sign that you are progressing as a human being and as a student, that you were willing to embrace new opportunities and give up on something that would not make you happy. Just make sure that you do your research beforehand on different career paths and use all the opportunities that college gives you in order to learn new things and meet new people. Internships, and other short-termed opportunities like job-shadowing programs are great ways to understand if you fit in the specific area you are thinking of pursuing or if, in real life, it has nothing to do with you.

Lots of luck!

Fantasy Au Headcanon:

Where Oikawa is a control freak that wants the protagonist gang to follow every single detail of his evil plan (but they don’t obviously) and ends up being whiney about it the whole time. Kuroo, ever the best ally one could have, pokes fun at him as a sign of affection before telling him the faults in his plan.

“Why aren’t they turning right?” Oikawa complains like a man-child, frustrated over the imperfection of his plan.

“Isn’t it because you gave them the choice to turn left?” Kuroo blinks lazily into the crystal ball where Kenma and his group of friends are at a crossroad.

City Lights (1931) is widely considered Charlie Chaplin’s greatest movie. It’s the story of a tramp who falls in love with a blind girl, played by Virginia Cherrill; a pretty simple plot by today’s standards, but due to technical limitations at the time, it took Chaplin more than two years to shoot. Then again, it might have been completed sooner, if Chaplin wasn’t basically the proto-Kubrick: an uncompromising perfectionist who wanted to control every single detail of his films. For example: One scene in which Cherrill asks his character “Flower, sir?” had to be repeated more than 300 bloody times.

Yes, we should point out that it was a silent film.
