- Studying together, the two of you always study on Wednesday nights usually at your house since your parents work late and always leave you dinner money so Jeff comes over and you study together and order pizza for dinner 

- Going for late night drives, Jeff loves driving especially at night so on warm summer nights he picks you up and he drives around with the windows down and the music turned up loud

- Dates to the cinema, your favourite place to go on dates is to the cinema to see whatever movie is on it was were you and Jeff had your first date and now you go there every year on your anniversary

Hello! I’m new to Studyblr so I thought I’d take my first post as an opportunity to introduce myself.

  • I’m Joel and I come from the UK!
  • I’m 17 years old and I was born on the 11th February.
  • I’m a first year A-Level Student studying English Literature, History & Mathematics.
  • I’m an INFJ and a Ravenclaw.
  • I hope to study English at a University, it’s one of my greatest passions.
  • I own a bullet journal and often tend to forget to keep updating it. But, I’m trying to make Sundays my spread drawing days.
  • I’m left handed, the only one in my family!
  • I love to read, some of my favourite authors include Sarah J. Maas, Susan Dennard, Rainbow Rowell, J.K Rowling, Marie Lu & Leigh Bardugo.
  • I confess not to having read many classic novels, but I’m trying to change that this year by reading at least 15 classics.
  • I want to become an author or someone who works within the publishing world.
  • Procrastination is my worst enemy, and I suffer from it a lot! :(
  • I watch tv, play video games, listen to music or read books in my spare time. Asian dramas are the best tv, hands down.

All of these studyblrs are amazing so I highly recommend checking them out (Although you might already have them in your followers list!)

Currently, I use a Muji 0.5mm Ballpoint Pen to write class notes with and I do my titles with a Faber Castell PITT Artist Pen. For added colour, I have the other colours in the Muji 0.5mm set but also a set of 50 Crayola Supertip Pens which are kind of like Mildliners. For Bullet Journaling, I like to use a Leuchtturm1917 notebook, I love the feel of the notebooks. 

I’m so excited to meet you all! Reblog this post if you’re a Studyblr too so I can follow you :D

“It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.”

Hi, everyone! If you’re like me and you love a good game soundtrack or a great playlist of all sorts of game music, this is the masterpost for you. I’m one of those people who studies better with some music in the background, and what better way of making a study session more enjoyable than by listening to the soundtrack of your favourite game?

Why listen to music while you study?

Multiple studies have proven that certain students who listen to music while they study perform better academically. Unfortunately, it’s not for everyone, so you should really figure out if this is the right method for you before commiting yourself to it! The main arguement for studying with music is that research has proved that listening to classical music in particular helps the brain absorb more information and also helps stimulate one’s thinking! 

On the other hand, some people tend to lose all concentration when there’s any music or noise in the background, which leads to procrastination and lower productivity. In short, if you can’t concentrate on the task at hand and get distracted easily, this isn’t the best method for you! 

Playlists

I started actively looking for playlists with game music about two years ago and instantly fell in love. There are so many good playlists of various lengths and genres that are accessable on platforms like spotify, 8tracks, youtube, etc. All of the playlists include the tracklist in the description below them! 

Note: I won’t be adding any playlists from 8tracks because they only work in the US and Canada. 

i. General

Game music for studying: Some of you might have already heard of these videos before. They’re roughly an hour and a half long and include some of the more calming tracks from a lot of different games. All the names of the tracks are listed in the description below, which is super handy if you want to find out which game it’s from! I thought I’d put in the playlist of all of them so you can just press play and enjoy!

Video game music! 2.0: Probably the longest playlist you’ll find anywhere. a n y w h e r e. 223 hours of amazingness that you’ll never regret! 

ii. Calming/ relaxing

5 hours of atmospheric game music: This is one of my personal favourites. It’s very long so you don’t have to worry about looking for another playlist when this one finishes. 

Relaxing video game music: Another gem! Once again with all the tracks in the description. This one’s great for shorter study sessions since it’s only and hour long.

More relaxing  video game music: If the previous playlist was too short for you, check out this 3 hour one! I used this one a lot last year! 

Calming Nintendo music: A super great playlist for all you Nintendo fans! It includes some really nice tracks from the Legend of Zelda series, if you’re into those soundtracks!

Jesper Kyd playlist: Ever since I first played Assassin’s Creed 2, I’ve loved Jesper Kyd’s work. This is quite a long playlist including some of his best tracks from various games. My favourites are towards the end!

Relaxing Legend of Zelda music: You had to see this one coming. The LoZ series has some of the best soundtracks to study to (, in my opinion,) and some of the prettiest and most calming tracks. I highly recommend this 42 minute playlist for those times when you just don’t feel like working.

2 hours of sleepy video game music: This is also a little series of playlists. There are 4 of these videos in total, which adds up to 8 hours of sweet, sweet music. 

iii. Epic/ badass

Epic video game music: For all of you who need a little badass music in the background! 2.5 hours of epic and awe inspiring music to really get some work done! 

Focus - video game music: Spotify has some really great playlists, so I thought I’d include a few! This playlist is a little more epic and loud, but if that’s the mindset you really need to push through, this would be great for you. It’s an amazing 11 hours long so you’ll never run out.

Orchestral video game music: Another epic playlist, including the occasional lullaby. This is a 7 hour long playlist, so a little shorter than the previous one, but by no means less epic and badass!

Soundtracks

Compared to the playlists, soundtracks tend to be a mix of epic and calming music. Most games have their perilous moments and their I’m-so-relieved-I-managed-to-beat-that-boss-with-only-one-heart-left moments. The world of video games is vast, so I’ve selected a few of my favourite soundtracks to share with you instead of listing all of the ones I can find.

Legend of Zelda - Skyward Sword: One of my favourite all time games! The soundtrack is long too, so you don’t have to worry about looking for a new one afterwards. 

Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time: This game is widely believed to have the best soundtrack in video game history. All I can say is so sit down, gather your work and to just enjoy.

Final Fantasy VI: This 1994 gem has an avarage playtime of 65-70 hours. The game has such a good storyline and the soundtrack is a little old school with a lot of non-orchestral tracks. I’d still recommend this to everyone who likes an older style of video game.

Suikoden Tierkreis: I have memories of me just going to the overworld map so I could listen to the music. It’s that good. 

Bioshock Infinite: I’ve only ever played the first in the series, but I watched a walkthrough of this particular game and I loved it so much! The music is slightly creepy and loud sometimes but it’s a really great soundtrack overall.

The Last of Us: Another game I’ve never actually played, but the walkthrough was amazing. The soundtrack is very atmospheric and doesn’t have a lot of loud parts, so it’s generally calm. 

Assassin’s creed 2: My all-time favourite game ever. As you know from before, I think Jesper Kyd is amazing, so putting these two elements together makes a truly great game. The soundtrack is actually quite well known because a few of it’s most popular tracks are featured a lot in other playlists. E.g. Dreams in Venice and The Madam

The Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim: I’ve listened to this one a few times and I think it’s really good! It starts off quite strong but it has a lot of calmer songs too.

Fable 2: The Fable series is well-known for being short, so the soundtrack is also on the shorter side. I know the dialogue in the game almost by heart and I can guarantee you that there’s a lot of atmospheric music in this soundtrack. 

Fragile: This one was recommended to me by a friend on tumblr years ago. It has really sweet songs and has a lot of piano centered tracks. 

Now get to work!

I hope I’ve helped you find the perfect game music to accompany you while you study! If you have any recommendations, feel free to send me a message! I’m always up to discovering new playlists/ soundtracks.

fan wars are ridiculous

First of all, what the actual hell? Hacking a website? Setting up viruses to hack into someones IP? Bashing another person for liking a different group? What the hell? This isn’t even a matter of “Oh, you’re just being sensitive because you stan them. This is just a joke.” NO. This is NOT a joke anymore. Fanwars are not only ruining the image of a group, but also ruining places on social media that are suppose to be safe environments! 

I’m not going to lie. Breaking records and seeing your favourite group succeed is a good feeling, but can’t we just agree that all groups are successful regardless of the number? Like shit. They’ve trained for more years than I’ve been in high school! They’re out there making more money, doing things with their lives while you’re sitting behind a computer screen bashing another group because they managed to get more views. Congratulations, but I don’t think you’re on the winning end of the bargain. 

I’m not telling you to like all the groups in the industry. I’m not telling you to stop loving your group. I don’t care what you do in your fanbase, but don’t ruin the experience for others. Have you ever thought that maybe your favourite group doesn’t actually care about the numbers on the YouTube counter? I can bet you that they make music, beautiful music videos, and spend their time just so you, the fans can enjoy it. The views are just a little something extra for the hard work that the group puts in. 

I sure as hell am not telling you to stop supporting your group, but do it in a way where it makes the experience fair and fun for every one. When we got into kpop years ago, we weren’t signing up for 10 paragraph long arguments about which group is better. We go into it because the song was catchy or there was something appealing about the MV. Never did it ever start with “oh this has so many views, I’m going to stan them now.” Never. Let’s rewind a little and just enjoy everything that there is. 

Fan wars, hate comments, no one deserves any of this. Idols work hard enough, don’t ruin that for them. 

Hey Swen:

Calm down. Relax with the rumors. We’ll know the fate of the show when they make it official. As for Swan Queen? Don’t forget that it belongs to us. Swan Queen is ours and no one can take it away from us. We’ll still be here no matter how or when the show ends. We’ll still be here no matter how much they butcher our favourite characters. We’ll still be here fifty years from now because our fandom is full of wonderful, creative, loyal people who will never let Swan Queen die because of what it means to us, because it will continue to live on in art, fanfiction, videos, music, and so much more. I love SWEN and I have no doubt that we’ll still be one of the biggest and most wonderful fandom families for many decades to come, so don’t let them get you down. We don’t need their canon ridiculousness to give our girls their happy ending. Emma and Regina already have a million happily-ever-afters because of fanon.

Never forget: Swan Queen belongs to us. ♥ 

And I am so proud to call you all my friends and family. :)

~Chris Wood Appreciation Week~
day 2: favourite funny/cute moments 

I’ve realized today, after spending almost an hour trying to decide, that I am absolutely incapable of choosing only ONE funny or cute moment of Chris. It’s just impossible. But, I apparently have to choose something (curse you for making me choose) so I’m going for this one: Chris singing in musicals in his university years. 

I remember the first time I saw one of the videos, a couple of months after I’ve became his fan. I was having a Chris Wood video spree on YouTube, and came upon him singing “Where is the Life that Late I Led?”, and I was like “Oh, let me see what this is.” And I was absolutely floored. I remember staring at the screen with my mouth open at how…how amazing this man was, how good his voice and acting was, and how he was embracing his role, no matter how ridiculous it looked. 

And then of course I went and found all the videos I could find of him from the musicals, and oh my God, I did not know what I was missing. I remember laughing so hard at them, but also being so amazed at this man and how good he was at his job. It made me feel really sad that I might not get to watch him in stage in a musical, because he was that good. I remember rewatching the videos whenever I felt down, or I felt like it, and I do not regret it. I don’t remember anyone else has made me laugh so much and smile so hard at something. And it made me realize just how much I loved this man. 

And something else about this, for someone who was absolutely terrified of playing in musicals (not that I don’t like them, I’m just never that confident about my voice) Chris’s musical videos motivated me to try out for the musical that our school is making next year, and guess what, I got a part in it! It’s a small part, but it’s better than nothing, and I just wanna thank Chris for that because without those videos I would’ve never had that courage. 

So, now that Yuuri and Victor are about to travel to my home country - Spain - to compete in the Grand Prix Final, I think it’s time that I talk to you guys about one of the most interesting skaters this show has led me to discover (as recommended to me by the wonderful @danuuss​): Spanish skater Javier Fernández.

Honestly, I don’t know how I haven’t seen a single post about him yet. He’s the current male ice skating world champion, won silver at the last Grand Prix Final, and has placed first at both the Rostelecom Cup and the Trophée de France this year, barely three weeks ago. Plus, he trained alongside Yuzuru Hanyu in Toronto and they are very close friends. Case and point:

(Don’t misinterpret this though, Javier’s in a relationship with skater Miki Ando :P)

But enough about Yuzuru, I’ll just let Javier speak for himself. The following is his free program from last year’s World Championship (which he won). Out of all the videos in this post, I think this one is honestly my favourite - I could watch it forever, the music is fantastic and his performance is near perfect.

Okay, so you watch this and you think “Pretty suave”, right? Well, here’s the thing: Javier Fernandez is literally the most Spanish athlete I have ever seen. And by that I mean that he always finds the time to make a joke. Without further ado, his performance for the 2014 Sochi Olympics Closing Ceremony.

Literally the most Spanish thing ever s2g. 

For those you who are interested, I’ll also include his programs from this year. I like his free program best to be honest, but the way he gets super into his short program is just amazing to watch.

Short program (I really like the commentary in this one):

Free program:

I’ll leave it there because I really don’t want this to turn into a super long post, but I hope you enjoyed getting to know one of the top skaters in the world! I get the feeling that in this fandom we tend to be really focused on just a handful of skaters, and I think we should definitely broaden our horizons a little more and get to know other skaters as well, especially those from our own countries!

I’m looking for a penpal as a new way to get to know people. I haven’t had a penpal for years.
I really love music, rock and metal (pop punk, metalcore and all other genres). I love reading and I really love video games. I love RPGs and all fantasy games (The Elder Scrolls are definitely my favourite series). I’m starting Uni next year (Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery) so it’d be cool to talk to someone about uni and biology. I’ve lived in New Zealand my entire life and only speak English.

bastilledan: We first came to Lithuania a few years ago to shoot the “Things We Lost In The Fire” video with @naoraloni. It is one of my favourites that we’ve made. We had a slightly mad 24 hours shooting it in between gigs and festivals and it was loads of fun. It’s good to be back here playing a show tonight 🇱🇹

🇪🇪 Estonia
Karl-Erik Taukar - Seitse Pühapäeva
Release date: June 2017

Only in Estonia you can feature their Eurovision representatives from 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 (plus Switzerland 2005 because they sent an Estonian girl band that year) and numerous Eesti Laul contestants in the same music video.

I mean, look at them, they are all taking a road trip. They look like they have so much fun making this MV. Oh, did I mention Karl-Erik Taukar is my favourite Estonian singer?

Name: Angel
Age: 20
Country:  Ireland

Hello reader, I’m Angel and I was born in the Philippines, but I grew up in Ireland for the most part. I can speak Tagalog and English, some Spanish and Irish-though don’t expect to have a full on conversation in those languages lol. I’m currently studying nursing and I will be entering my second year in this course around August.

I love music and it’s something that I cannot live/function without! My favourite types of music are indie, acoustics, pop, synth pop, alternative, r&b and the occasional ballad (karaoke is life). My favourite band is Tegan and Sara, I also love listening to Frank Ocean, The Weeknd and others. I play the guitar and ukulele, but not as much as I used to. Video games, reading (fanfics mostly..) and movies are some of my other interests. I mostly play PS4 and sometimes PC. Horror movies are one of my favourite movie genres.

I’ve had a pen pal before through email. I occasionally send cards, postcards and small presents to some friends and acquaintances all over the world. I enjoy receiving post through snail mail because I have such a fascination for it.

Looking for someone open-minded, doesn’t mind bad puns and memes, with similar interests/opposite interests that would like to get in touch either through messages, emails, snail mail or all of the above:)

Alexy Headcanons

1. What they smell like:
Honestly he smells so good. He always smells like his rosemary shampoo and one of the three colognes he owns. They all have sweet-like smell; he likes to smell like cookies fresh out of the oven.

2. How they sleep (sleeping position, schedule, etc):
Tries the best he can to keep his schedule. Usually goes to sleep between 10:30-11:00pm. He is a light sleeper, so he usually sleeps with his headphones on, to muffle the sound of the video games his brother might be playing next room.

3. What music they enjoy:
He is pretty eclectic and likes to listen to subgenres of pop, dance, electronic and house. He’s particularly fond of dance-pop and eletrohouse. He also enjoys listening to J/k-pop occasionally.

4. How much time they spend getting ready every morning:
Between 10-20 minutes, depends on whether he is taking a shower or not.

5. Their favourite thing to collect:
He has a small collection of cute stationary he has collected for about 2 years now, he likes to keep everything tidy and neat.

6. Left or right-handed:
Right-handed.

7. Religion (if any): 
Just like Armin, he grew up in a catholic family and they’re all pretty chill.

8. Favourite sport:
He is not a fan of playing sports and doesn’t bother watching them. However he likes to dance, and kinda counts that as a physical activity.

9. Favourite touristy thing to do when travelling:
He’ll visit local thrift shops and the mall in general to search for colorful and pretty bargains. He likes the idea of having a wardrobe formed by pieces of clothing from all places he traveled.

10. Favorite kind of weather:
Sunny. He thinks the sunny weather brings out the best in people in general, and that everyone should feel like a sunshine. His favorite season is spring; he thinks the flowers make everything so much prettier.

11. A weird/obscure fear they have:
He’s afraid of not being accepted. Despite being pretty open about who he is and that his family and friends accept him, he’s afraid of not being able to be himself, since not everyone is nice…

12. The carnival/arcade game they always win without fail:
Any game that is about dancing.

we all know how bad isak is at maneuvering the internet™ so what if even helps isak get to know the gay side of the interwebs (beside the gay test of couse)

even introducing isak to gay youtube like:

  • “you never watched a coming out story???” and then proceeding to show him the ones that helped him come to terms with himself
  • showing him cute couples that vlog (and picking up their catch phrases)
  • “actually there are also gay people on youtube whose videos don’t revolve around being gay. like there is this science channel that even i like to watch and they are a gay couple” and isak is really surprised that they exist

even going “isak you know you don’t HAVE to buy every film you want to watch, right?”

  • and then showing him his favourite gay lovestories including, but not limited to, “The Way He Looks” and “Jongens”

slowly easing isak into pop music again by playing him his favourite songs byy out and proud gay artists

  • think about them listening to years & years while cuddling in bed
  • isak quietly singing along to Troye Sivan 
  • even convincing isak to listen to Pentatonix and then spending an evening marvelling at their talent. he even gets isak to admit that Scott kinda rally is his type. 
  • Frank Ocean
  • feel free to add to this list

Grand Theft Auto: Save OpenIV
For 10 years now the Grand Theft Auto series has been edited and modded by people to make the game more enjoyable. Hundreds if not thousands of people have bought one or all of Grand Theft Auto: SA, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Grand Theft Auto V just to mod it. The modding of these games have been done.....

GTA Fans,

Please can you all take a few moments to sign and share this petition to keep game mods alive.

Without mods and no guarantee of story DLC, you will never see another funny GTA video or new/cool screenshots/music videos etc of your favourite character or ship. Like the ones you’ve seen from @nelly0215 @abstractmode and @anime-boom-v over the years.

TakeTwo/Rockstar claim they are attempting to stamp out cheaters/hackers by taking down mods but content creators have been caught in the crossfire and so many innocent people are having their hard work ruined by this ban which is impacting on single player/offline mods.

The petition is looking to raise at least 50,000 signatures to make Take Two take notice, and take back their recent actions in order to help the creative modding community continue on.

It really does take less than a couple of minutes to sign and it could help keep the fandom alive.

Thanks all!
