  11. Tarot: A New Handbook for the Apprentice, Classic Ed (Connolly Tarot) by Eileen Connolly – this is the first tarot book I ever got my hands on.  It’s still a treasured favorite.  Some might be put off by her Christian undertones but I find the interpretations to be pure gold.  I love all of her works.
  12. SuperTarot: New Techniques for Improving Your Tarot Reading by Sasha Fenton – although this is out of print, it is worth searching for a copy. The techniques contained within will help you expand your tarot skills.

  21. Tarot Decoded: Understanding and Using Dignities and Correspondences by Elizabeth Hazel – every single dignity and correspondence you can imagine is featured here.
  22. Who Are You in the Tarot?: Discover Your Birth and Year Cards and Uncover Your Destiny by Mary Greer – this is a fantastic book that gives deep insights on your personality, life and journey based on your “birth card”.
  23. Tarot for Beginners: A Practical Guide to Reading the Cards by Barbara Moore – the easiest beginner book out there, this one will appeal to absolute newbies and those who are really sure they can’t “get it”.  Moore shows you that you CAN.
  24. Tarot 101: Mastering the Art of Reading the Cards by Kim Huggens – excellent exercises, good reading list suggestions and a unique format make this book one you cannot miss.  Good for all levels.

Things to Consider When Worldbuilding

Also known as ‘Things to Consider in General with Slugterra’; while they hit with some points, they fail to note other crucial things.
A LOOOOOOT of crucial things.

While this is not the most complete list in the world and it’s kind of dumbed down in terminologies for the sake of folk of all ages being able to understand it, it’s still something to get you started! 

Consider it a writing tool in general, if you like, and don’t be afraid to add to it! The more, the merrier!

Song: Supermassive Black Hole by Muse

Paring: Sam x Reader

Word Count: 1,000-ish

Warning: Sammy smut

A/N: This is for @mysteriouslyme81’s Supernatural Music 201617 Challenge. Don’t ask how this song inspired all of this but it’s literally the first thing that came to mind when I heard the first like 30 seconds of the song. Enjoy what my dirty mind came up with!

Sam’s heavy breathing caught your attention as you passed the garage. Taking a few steps back you peaked your head through the door. Biting your lip, you let out a soft moan at the sight in front of you.

Black Hole by Muse blaring, shirtless, and dripping with seat, Sam ran suicides across the garage. His muscles flexing, his chest heaving. Your heart was racing just watching. He was fast, graceful yet powerful, and sexy as all fuck.  

Splashing some water in his face he grabbed the jump rope. God his calves were amazing; and that hair moving as he jumped, fuck me. Back muscles flexing as he huffed you carefully slid through the door, getting a better view.

Slowly walking towards him you watched as he dropped to the floor and start doing crunches. His sweat making his skin glisten as he worked. Your brain turning to nothing but white fuzz as you watched his abs contract with each movement. Getting towards the end of his set he let out a loud grunt that made you whimper a little.

Friday, June 17th, 2016. Hello, community! How’s everyone doing? I missed you. I’m freaking out over college, but I’m fine, I think. 

I’m currently preparing myself for a test that I’ll do in a week. To ensure that I am well prepared, I borrowed a book in college library, gathered all my notes and I have a list of exercises to solve later. I really hope to do well in this test, because I don’t think the previous one went very good. Today I stayed home all day and did nothing yay! (nervous laugher). Well… I’ll try to make up for it I promise.

[Image description: A chart labeled ‘Bodyweight Exercises by Neila Rey (neilarey.com)’. Underneath are small pictures of a variety of exercises such as sit-ups, lunges, and squats.]

For our low-income spoonie friends who are working on fitness but can’t buy a gym membership or the equipment needed! These may not all be within your range of motion, but it’s worth taking a look!

anonymous asked:

Hello, Laura! I'm currently in the process of learning Japanese (well, more like prepping to learn haha, I'm still memorising Hiragana and Katakana at the moment) and I was wondering where should I even begin with Kanji? It's feels a like I'm in over my head so I was wondering if you had any tips on where to start, or is this just something you dive head-first into (Yikes!)..?


You tackle kanji in the order of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test levels. It’s like learning the alphabet - you don’t start with Z, you start by learning A and move downwards. Likewise, in Japanese there’s an order to learning kanji, where you start with the basic kanjis and then move on to the more advanced ones.

I recommend using the Basic Kanji book series:

You can easily find the PDFs online. They not only explain how kanjis work (how you read them, etc), but also include vocabulary lists and exercises to test your knowledge after every lesson.

I don’t like the more advanced books in this series because they get unnecessarily complicated, but the basic ones are just as good as any other kanji learning book.

Good luck tackling kanji, anon!! Don’t stress out - remember to take it easy. It might feel a bit overwhelming at first, but you’ll slowly get used to the idea of kanji.

               - ̗̀  Preparing a Schedule before Exams ̖́-

1. Draw up a study timetable and block in all activities, work, lectures, and any household or other responsibilities you may have. Include meal times and travel time. Be realistic. This should be an actual timetable, which is possible, not some ideal that can never be achieved. Make enough copies to cover all the weeks leading up to exams or assessment.

2. Work out your most effective study times. When do you study best? Morning, afternoon or evening? Personally, I study best in the evenings and at night so I try to finish all my chores and homework before the night kicks in so that I can study in the night without worries.

3. Consider: Which subjects need the most study and revision? Estimate how many hours you think you need for each subject and try to match this with the hours available in your weekly planner.

4. Block in some study times, preferably 2-4 hours at a time, with 5-10 minutes’ break every 40-50 minutes.

5. Start at exam periods or due dates for assignments and work backwards, blocking in more study time in the relevant subject closer to the exam/due date. Make sure that you prepare for each exam over several days and don’t fill up the last few days too heavily. Also put in any events which may affect your study times, such as birthdays, social events and work functions.

6. You may want to plan in detail for each study session. Write down which lecture/topic/text you will be researching/ reviewing. This way, you can ensure that you will cover all the required information in the times you have allocated. Consider: What do I want to achieve in this session? (Example: summary/ notes / list of definitions/ language exercise/ essay plan/ list of resources/ timeline). Where will I need to study? Do I need access to a computer/ the internet/ the library?

7. If you have some smaller amounts of time available for study, consider how they could be used: skim reading an article, proofing a draft, sorting a bibliography, organizing reference cards, etc. Travel time on public transport can also be used for reading.

What after that? Start using your study timetable! See how well it works. What did you leave out? It can be changed as you go, but do this consciously: look at what is not working, which areas you need more time in and change the timetable. This is much better than just throwing the timetable away. Then you can be sure that you will still cover all the material you need to. I know you’ll rock those exams!

Hope this helped you out. You can always send me requests for masterposts since my ask box is always open! :’)
