But the silent serenity you were experiencing was suddenly disrupted by the feeling of someone else shifting beside you, and a familiar yet unexpected grunt was heard shortly afterwards. Hurriedly, your eyes flew open and your hand had to clasp over your mouth to prevent yourself from screaming.

           There, in front of you, was none other than a shirtless Kim Namjoon.

           Your eyes widened, trying to make sure you were in fact, wide awake. And then, as you tried to piece together the current situation, vague fragments of last night began flitting into your consciousness. Slowly, trying not to make a noise or stir Namjoon awake, you grabbed your phone from the bedside table. Your hands sped across your keyboard angrily.

           Y/N: “WHY AM I IN BED WITH NAMJOON??!”

Tips for Saving Money on Required Books

One of the most financially difficult parts about education (other than tuition!) are purchasing all of the required books. So I’ve decided to put together a list of some of the strategies I use to save money.

1) Look at your syllabi early! Syllabi usually list the required books for the entire course. When you have access to that list early, you’ll have more buying options because you won’t be forced to purchase whatever version of the book (usually new & overpriced) that comes with quick shipping. 

If you’re in a situation where you only receive the syllabus on the 1st day of class, consider emailing the professor and explaining that you’d like to make an early start on getting the required texts. They’ll appreciate your diligence! 

2) Consider buying older editions. Seriously, sometimes the only differences between a new edition and an older one are a few sentences, a new cover, and a new preface that your professor won’t even ask you to read. It’s worth it to find out if the older one is pretty much the same as the new because you’ll usually save quite a bit of money. 

3) Don’t depend on your university bookstore. I’m not going to say avoid it entirely because believe it or not sometimes they might be the cheapest option for certain rare books when you factor in no shipping costs. But it is safe to generalize that university bookstores are really overpriced when compared to online sellers. Which brings me to my next point…

4) Price check! Never buy a book because it “feels” like a good price. Check at least 3 or 4 different websites or bookstores and factors in shipping and see for sure where is cheapest. 

5) EBooks!!! You can save so much money when you own a Kindle or another eReader device. EBooks are usually cheaper than print books. But also, sometimes you can find eBooks for free! Or you can find PDF’s for free and read them on your eReader. 

6) Avoid purchasing all together by visiting a library. As a PhD student, I have to read a lot of books but I only value owning the ones that I will probably end up using for my comprehensive exams and/or my dissertation. So borrowing books is a good option for somebody like me. 

If you’re the type who needs to write notes in a book, consider making a copy of the book or the portions of the book that you need to take notes on. It costs money to print but it’ll always be significantly cheaper than purchasing the book. 

7) Contact people who took the course previously and see if they want to sell their books. This is a good way to get a book cheaper since even if you pay them half the original price you’re still giving them more money than they’d make by turning it into a university bookstore or trying to re-sell it online. 

Do you have any other good tips? Feel free to add them! 

The Legend of Korra: Asami Sato [INFJ]

OFFICIAL TYPING by mysterylover123

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Asami is quick to sum up other people, to gauge a great deal about them, and to act on her conclusions. In her first introduction, within a few minutes of meeting Mako she’s already planned how to apologize for him for running him over, where to go, and how to accommodate him there. She’s pretty single-minded of purpose and quick to make up her mind. She has set goals (save Future Industries, stop the villains, help Korra) and spends much of her time taking whatever steps are necessary to attain those goals. She doesn’t usually follow the rules or work within the standards of society; she’ll pretty much work with anyone to attain her goals, whether that be working with criminals (Season 2), alongside people who’ve betrayed her in the past like Varrick or her father (Season 4) or going against authority figures like the Earth Queen (Season 3). Her company’s name, Future Industries, is pretty fitting, because that’s usually where Asami’s mind is. 

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Asami is good at sensing what other people like, at grasping their feelings and putting them at ease. She’s great at comforting others and supporting them in their endeavors, particularly Korra during the second half of the series; she spends a lot of time at Korra’s side offering her words of encouragement and taking care of her in her times of need, even offering to leave behind Future Industries to keep an eye on her after the Zaheer incident. She’s open and honest with her feelings and rarely filters her emotions, talking about them clearly and openly with other people.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): She’s a skilled inventor, and easily sees how things work. She pieces together a feasible sand boat out of the ruins of an airship in the desert; she’s good at putting things together or taking them apart. She’s quick to correct people if she sees a logical inconsistency in their statements. She acts as the brains of the new team Avatar, along with Mako; both of them use their Ti-style logic to solve problems. She’s pretty good at asking questions and balancing grounded reason with emotional motivation (Fe/Ti).

Extroverted Sensing (Se): Asami’s Se is pretty well-developed; she’s very adroit with her environment, loves action and excitement, and utilizes her surroundings frequently to her advantage. She’s observant and quick to take action. She doesn’t particularly wish to work within the system, frequently refusing to play by the rules; she barely hesitates to fight against her own father when he’s revealed as an equalist. She isn’t very impulsive though, and usually thinks ahead rather than reacting in the moment, which contrasts her with Se-dom Korra.

Note: This is a re-type. I will note that Asami is really hard to type; she’s clearly Fe-aux, Ti-dom, but I’ve never been sure if she was ISFJ or INFJ. She was typed before as ISFJ, but on rewatching the series she struck me as Ni-dominant. She just doesn’t use Si; she doesn’t refer to things as they were in the past, she’s not very specific with details, she’s got her mind on the future too much to be Ne-inferior. Hopefully this will settle it, with me and with you, but who knows.

I really love your art and the way you color so I'd just like to ask if you are still using the fire alpaca program like you before? i'm still quite new to it and I just wanted some advice on alternative art programs besides the usual sai/ps. Like how do you get the painterly type of feel ( I'm sorry for bombarding you with all these questions! ) that is in your art or how do u add patterns and textures (again if you don't feel comfortable answering these it's fine as well ) ! Thank you :D

Hi! No, not anymore; I switched over to MediBang Paint (cloudalpaca) a while ago, but they’re very similar since they’re made by the same people.

The main difference is the materials panel which is what lets me add patterns/textures/screentones and stuff like that:

the tiles are repeating, while the tones are single “sheets”. the program comes with a bunch of them (you get a lot more by making an account (free) which also has some other features) and you can upload your own into the program. transparent textures is a site I know has a lot of patterns and textures.

to add textures you just have to drag it onto the canvas, then you can move it around, rotate, zoom using the options it gives you, then push OK. if you only want to cover a certain area, just select w either the magic wand / lasso / select pen / etc, and drag inside there:

in terms of painterly feel.. um… i tend to merge things into single layers as I go along and work on top of those over and over so I dont have any past stuff I can use as examples but in terms of colouring, I dont generally do line art and use my sketches instead, and usually put more attention in the hair, then keep everything else kinda simple? (it’s a style derived from laziness…. ha… ;;;)

I like this sketch of minato’s head from earlier, so I’ll colour it as example:

sometimes they’re clean, sometimes they’re super messy, but in the end it doesnt make a huge difference (I consider this very clean)

i use square bitmap brushes to sketch/colour:

sometimes I might use the mapping pen to sketch on smaller canvases or for really exact details

(I use a lot of quick strokes, and for blending stuff like blushes a lot of quick tapping) (there are other types of brushes like watercolour though if that’s more your thing)

next, I colour in the base colours on a layer underneath. I try to keep inside the sketch, but i dont care if it’s messy inside nor is it a big deal if it bleeds the sketch. Some quick, blocky shading on the skin/clothes. if there are a lot of colours or I want to even it out a bit, I might add an overlay/screen/etc layer on top now, or wait until later to do so. 

after that, I make a new layer over the sketch and colour in the hair w the shade colour entirely, then I shade that with a darker colour. on a new layer, I colour with the base colour. then I merge these, the sketch, and the base and fix some of the shading and lines. I pick colours that show up when I added the base as lighter shading. Sometimes I add highlights, sometimes I dont. then I add some quick blocks of the base to hide the shading and make it, I guess, less shiny?

it looks like a lot of steps, but this is usually done pretty sketchily, with some attention really only being given in 4/5, maybe 6

everything else is just blending the shading with quick strokes, overlapping the base and shade, and cleaning up the sketch. usually done on one layer.

the sketchy/blocky -ness is probably what gives it a “painterly” feel? idk

I hope these answer your questions! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

30 Best Mellow Frames (Part 3)

30-21

20-11

Sorry for the delay, here are the top ten Mellow Frames: 

10. Steven Universe Characters React to Edgy Theories 3:

Remember the Steven Universe Edgy Theory Generator? It was an online generator that came up with absurd theories for Steven Universe. It was popular with the fandom awhile ago. I made three comics that were about if these theories were true. These comics were fun to make because I didn’t have to waste time on set up or anything like that, I could get to the jokes quicker. The most popular seems to be the third one. The joke at end seems to be the popular favorite, which surprised me because I was very unsure about making the joke. However people did find it funny so I guess it did work. Raven Molisee, a writer and story boarder for Steven Universe, liked this post so I guess this is Crewniverse approved. Neat.

9. Just a Few Questions:

This is easily my most popular Mellow Frames as well as the most controversial. I do admit that I do have a few questions that could’ve been reworded ( “Where are my Limb Enhancers” should be “ Am I ever going to get my limb enhancers back”, “ Did Rose have any humans before Greg” should be “ Who were the humans that Rose had before Greg and what happened to them”) Also there were some questions I should have asked like “ Will Greg ever move on”, “ what did Peridot ‘mean by Harvest me’”, “Who owns the Big Donut”, and “ where are the cops in Beach City?”. 

With that said I do think some of the complaints are funny. I literally said it was a metaphor, but so many people took it literally. I’ve seen a few post complaining about this comic specifically saying this is how ridiculous SU Crits are. That makes me a little proud. Many believe that this comic is anti filler, but really my intention was to point out that there is a lot of possibilities for interesting stories, but season 4 wasn’t taking advantage of that. Though not all the questions were like that.

Honestly most of the people did like this comic and I’m proud of it. It’s just not higher because I prefer the ones where I am telling more of a story.

8. Fuse, Marry, Kill:

Here’s an oldie, but a goodie. It’s just about the gems playing fuse, marry, kill (though in hindsight it should have been fuse, marry, shatter or fuse, marry, bubble), but Pearl is giving eyebrow raising answers. This is pretty much the birth of the character we call Problematic Pearl. Problematic Pearl is pretty much Pearl, but is blatantly unapologetic and her flaws have been ramped up. This comic did become a slight meme as I’ve seen people on Tumblr and Reddit reference it. I believe this one is all right.

7. Problematic Pearl: Pokémon Go:

For those who don’t know, I have a secondary account called Ask Problematic Pearl. It’s an account where I have people ask questions towards Problematic Pearl, which is the Mellow Frames version of Pearl. This is easily my most popular post on that account and I understand why.  I feel like this one isn’t cheating to put on here since it’s done in a Mellow Frames sort of format. The ask I got for this came months before I answered. I waited so long to finally make this comic because I wanted to play the game for awhile so I can get the references right. I feel like it paid off. Also this is the only Pokémon Go meme I found that isn’t either condescending to players or about team stereotypes.

6. Are You the People I’m Suppose to Kidnap:

I’m a little surprised that this one is as popular as it is, I guess people like Garnet drawing boobs. In hindsight it is pretty funny and the boobs did look better than I expected (I can’t draw, but I know how to use Illustrator). Here’s a fun fact about what seems to be everyone favorite line “I hope not”, It was originally going to be said by Lars. I was thinking about doing a Mellow Frames on the Good Lars, where Sadie and Steven decide to get baked instead of helping Lars bake. While they’re high in the basement, Aquamarine and Topaz come in and kidnap Lars. Aquamarine asked Lars “ Are you my dad?” to which Lars replied with “ I hope not.” I ended up scrapping the idea because of time restraint ( and it not being that funny) so I gave the line to Connie. In hindsight, having Connie say it is a lot funnier.

5. The Lust Boat:

Well this one certainly has an erotic title, though it still accurately describes this comic. Not only is Jasper thirsty, but we have an added subplot about Pearl sailing out to hit on Jasper. I had quite a few people tell me that they hated this episode, but this comic made them feel a lot better. That makes feel a lot better.

4. Aether Foundation is Suspicious as Fuck:

I can’t believe how right this comic was. Not only was I right, the game didn’t even hide it. For a while this was actually the Mellow Frames with the most views, which is surprising because usually only the SU stuff gets notes (aside: I really need to start making Pokémon comics again since Ultra Sun/Moon are coming out). There was even a well-made dub of this comic made by Ravens Dub. They did a pretty good job on it.

3. Miss Problematic Pearl:

Mr. Greg was for me the episode that saved Pearl’s character, however that’s not very funny. What is funny is to put Problematic Pearl in the episode. So this comic is pretty much the episode except with Problematic Pearl and no musical numbers. This is probably one of the few Mellow Frames where I was laughing while making it.

2. Do You Mind, I’m Full of Education:

My best comics happen to be the ones on the episodes I like (people would think it would be the other way around). Mindful Education is one of my favorite episodes so Do You Mind I’m Full of Education is one of my favorite Mellow Frames. Despite the episode being so good, I still have a lot material especially with bitter misused Garnet. It seems people’s favorite part is when Garnet asked Stevonnie the uncomfortable question. I was very worried about that moment since Garnet used an arguably offensive (some people told me the word wasn’t as much offensive as it was archaic. With that said, I never use the word unless in relation to a famous trope), but nobody got offended. Fun fact: that scene has also inspired an original film that I’m currently writing. This one is just one I love reading and I hope you do too.

1.     Peridot’s Hidden Escape Pods:

And here’s #1, it was #1 the last list and it’s #1 her too. This one asks an important question, what if Peridot planted escape pods throughout the ship. It really doesn’t work out. People love seeing villains fail, and it’s usually funny to see it done by their own volition. What makes this comic the best one is that it works even if you haven’t seen what it’s parodying. I showed this comic to my little sister who hasn’t even seen Steven Universe, and she laughed hard. I also liked the interactions between Japer and Peridot, which wasn’t really that different from the show. Until “Aether Foundation is Suspicious as Fuck” and “Just a Few Questions” this was the Mellow Frames with the most notes, and it really deserves it. Like the Aether Foundation comic this too has a dub that you should check out (I’m linking to my reblog because the dubber deactivated their account). Honestly this one is still the funniest in my opinion.


And that was my top 30 Mellow Frames. I would like to thank you all for following my Mellow Frames and supporting them too. Making these have been a lot of fun despite the lack of financial returns. Now I’m going to tell you all a little secret. So many people have asked me to do an abridged series of these frames, and I’ve usually said no. Now I’m going to tell you that I actually really want to, and I probably will eventually. Right now I’m trying to get financially independent, but after I accomplish that I’m thinking about making the SU comics into videos. I just need to learn how to edit an abridge series (though it’s not exactly an abridge series) and get voice actors since I can’t voice act (though I know a few people would be perfect voices). So it probably won’t happen this year, but eventually I would like these Mellow Frames to not just be comics anymore.

day seven

You wake up to the smell of bacon and eggs frying in the pan, a small smile playing on your lips as you saunter out of bed, attempting to rearrange your bedhead. The sound of plates clinking together can be heard as you draw closer to the kitchen, leaning against the doorframe while watching Yoongi casually splitting your breakfast on two plates. He glances up and gives you a little nod before turning away.

“Just so you know, these two plates are for me,” he tells you, pouring tea into two mugs. “So are these two cups of tea. If you want breakfast, you’re gonna make it yourself.”

You laugh, settling yourself down at the table, placing your chin on your hands as you watch him set the plates down. Yoongi sits opposite you, passing you a set of cutlery before digging in. You take a sip of tea, sighing as the warm liquid slips down your throat.

“I’m so glad you’re my roommate.”

“I can’t wait to move out.”

“Yoongi!”

Got any tips for an oily broke bitch such as myself? (I'm not that last anon but I too am broke and in need of tips 😂)

ya!! idk if ur lookin for makeup or skincare but….. im gonna assume skincare

  • if u have oily skin, the trick is to get rid of excess oil without completely drying out the skin. finding products that dont trigger oil production is a must
  • always look for a cleanser that is free of sodium laurel sulfate, which is a detergent that can strip skin of natural oils and will make ur skin produce more
  • some rly good products are the Aveeno Clear Complexion Cleansing Bar which is less than $3 at most drugstores, or the Avalon Organics CoQ 10 Facial Milk, which costs about $10 & cleanses while leaving your skin feeling super hydrated. if ur lookin for wipes the Simple Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes sell for less than $5 and get rid of dirt, oil, and makeup 
  • oily skin does need moisture in order to restore balance in your skin but heavy moisturizers might break u out so
  • always choose an oil-free moisturizer to hydrate your skin. the Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer is oil-free and contains a small amount of salicylic acid (0.5%) to help battle acne, and it’s usually available for less than $5
  • for sunscreen the Equate Oil-Free Sunscreen Stick is pretty good and is less than $3; my personal favorite is the Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid-Lotion Sunblock which is about $10
  • oils are another option but good oils can be pretty expensive
  • for acne treatment i’ve seen a recipe for a homemade spray that includes ½ cup raw apple cider vinegar (unfiltered works best, and is easy to find at the grocery store for approximately $3); 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil (a small bottle costs approximately $6); ½ cup warm water (ESSENTIAL!!! THE AFOREMENTIONED PRODUCTS ON YOUR FACE UNDILTUTED ARE BAD) in a small spray bottle and shaken, applied with a cotton ball
  • the Neutrogena On The Spot Acne Treatment is a rly good spot treatment that i use myself and it sells for around $7
  • there are a few good budget toners depending on what you need, including the Simple Soothing Facial Toner ($7), Burt’s Bees Rosewater Toner ($11), and the Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel (my fav, about $11 on amazon)

Ennotana

Thank you anon!! <3

  • who hogs the duvet
    Ennoshita~ Tanaka moves a lot in his sleep and winds up kicking it off anyways, so Ennoshita bundles himself in it so he won’t get cold in the middle of the night 
  • who texts/rings to check how their day is going
    Tanaka! And then he gets a “stop texting in class” reply, spams Ennoshita with “ :( “ in return, they both end up getting their phones confiscated, and Tanaka attempts to comfort an exasperated (but slightly amused) Ennoshita
  • who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts
    Tanaka, he has pretty wild tastes about what makes a great gift (like one time Ennoshita off-handedly mentions he has a hard time keeping track of his change, and the next thing he knows Tanaka has presented him with a unique monkey piggy bank that keeps track of how much money you put in and screeches every time you do so; Tanaka justifies it with “well money is just monkey without the k”) 
  • who gets up first in the morning
    Tanakaa, Ennoshita isn’t much of a morning person, and it takes a lot of gentle pushing and smooching to finally get him movin~ once he takes a shower though he’s good to go!
  • who suggests new things in bed
    I don’t really think of them as a sexually active couple but uhh…..Tanaka because he just already has a lot of knowledge about different techniques prior to the relationship 
  • who cries at movies
    Tanaka, Ennoshita’s too busy critiquing the screenplay (since he’s a movie director too, after all ;D) 
  • who gives unprompted massages
    Ennoshita! He knows Tanaka’s muscles can get a bit sore after an intense match or practice, so he usually helps Tanaka wind down with a nice back massage~
  • who fusses over the other when they’re sick
    Tanaka verbally fusses more, but Ennoshita worries internally just as much! They both do what the other one asks for to maximize their comfort and recovery speed~ 
  • who gets jealous easiest
    Ennoshita a little, because he knows how girl-obsessed Tanaka was before their relationship, and can be a little wary when he sees Tanaka having a prolonged, positive interaction with a female classmate (but Tanaka reassures him that he’s not the type of guy to change his mind so easily) 
  • who has the most embarrassing taste in music
    Tanaka maybe? I feel like Ennoshita listens to pop punk, indie rock, and electro swing
  • who collects something unusual
    It’s not super unusual, but Tanaka collects hats! Especially beanies, since they help keep his head warm and go with a lot of different outfits
  • who takes the longest to get ready
    Both of them are pretty fast at getting ready, although occasionally Ennoshita will have a moment of doubt about how flattering his outfit looks, but Tanaka always reassures him he looks great
  • who is the most tidy and organised
    Tanaka, not that Ennoshita is super messy, but sometimes he’ll leave a couple things lying around and say he’ll put them in their proper places later
  • who gets most excited about the holidays
    They both get pretty excited! Tanaka always looks forward to doing all sorts of fun activities with Ennoshita like ice skating, visiting hot springs, mini golf, and Ennoshita looks forward to all the delicious food they’ll discover and being able to relax with Tanaka 
  • who is the big spoon/little spoon
    Tanaka is the big spoon, Ennoshita is the little spoon
  • who gets most competitive when playing games and/or sports
    Tanakaa, he gets fired up easy!! But, Ennoshita won’t let himself get walked all over, and can put up a fair fight~ 
  • who starts the most arguments
    Ennoshita, but it’s more like small complaints that are also a form of teasing Tanaka, and Tanaka usually fake-pouts, tackles Ennoshita with kisses, and/or teases Ennoshita in response 
  • who suggests that they buy a pet
    Ennoshita! But he wants a small animal so that it’s easier to take care of and carry around, so they end up getting a pomeranian (which ends up having its own little seat next to Ennoshita’s director chair) 
  • what couple traditions they have
    Video-taping each other’s reactions when opening gifts; going to the cherry blossom viewing during the spring; buying each other’s favorite pastries for Valentine’s day; going to every premiere of Ennoshita’s films; treating themselves to a buffet after winning a match; building a sculpture of their pomeranian when it snows (it usually ends up looking like a mutant blob but..they try…) 
  • what tv shows they watch together
    MythBusters, How It’s Made, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad
  • what other couple they hang out with
    AsaNoya, DaiSuga, Narita/Kinoshita, KiyoYachi 
  • how they spend time together as a couple
    Making home videos; eating a huge bowl of popcorn while watching TV; cooking meals for each other; spending an entire night video gaming and sleeping until 2 p.m. the next day; walking the dog together; coming up with “a million dollars but…” scenarios; brainstorming possible movie plots; sitting in cafes with their legs casually interlaced under the table
  • who made the first move
    Tanaka~ it got to a point where he felt like he would burst if he had to keep holding in his feelings, so one day after school Tanaka had Ennoshita meet him alone behind the school and confessed in a rush 
  • who brings flowers home
    Tanaka brings Ennoshita pudding cups, and Ennoshita brings Tanaka melonpan 
  • who is the best cook
    They’re both pretty good cooks so they usually take shifts making food~ 

Send me a ship!

A Lot Closer - Jack Maynard

Request: Can you write an imagine with jack and y/n having a mutual friend who always told jack to stay away from y/n because hes a player and she’s not like that. Then it intrigues them and they get together one night ??

Jack’s POV

“I’m telling you, mate.” Caspar said to me as we sat in the restaurant for dinner.

The boys and I had organized a night to celebrate me hitting one million subscribers on Youtube. It had been super hard to get everyone together but we finally managed to do so.

“Look Casp, I’m not gonna do anything, alright?” I said, reassuring him.

Caspar’s friend, (y/n) was visiting from home and I’m not gonna lie, she was pretty hot. She was definitely someone I usually go for but from the minute she arrived, Caspar had been telling all of us to stay away from her.

“I’m just saying. She’s a good girl and she doesn’t need someone like you messing her up.” 

I looked at him shocked, not really knowing what to say back. I mean, I understand why he’s warning me. 1) she’s my type. 2) she’s way to hot to not try anything. And 3) I’m probably not the best person to go for. Sure, I have feelings but I prefer not to get caught up in them and just have a little fun instead. (y/n) was definitely someone I wanted to have fun with.

“She’s meeting us later tonight; she just wanted to explore London in the evening.”

The night went on as amazing as I hoped it would and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to celebrate with. Later on, we decided to head to the club where (y/n) was already waiting for us at the booth. Her black skin tight skirt went just passed her perfectly round butt and her shirt was so low cut that it went just to the middle of her perfectly flat stomach. I subconsciously bit my lip as the group and I walked over to her.

“You better watch that.” Conor said to me, pointing to my lip before grabbing himself a drink.

“So, I just wanna say,” I said, holding my drink in the air. “thank you to everyone for coming out tonight and supporting me throughout my journey. You lot are the best friends I could ask for. Let’s make this night forgettable and have a good time.” I knew we were going to drink way to much to be able to remember the night so I decided we shouldn’t lie to ourselves. I looked towards (y/n), smiled at her before we all smacked the shots against each other and taking them. 

“The man of the night.” (y/n) said, taking a seat next to me. 

Her leg rested against mine and just the touch of her skin against me made me want to push her up against a wall and make her scream my name. I looked over at Caspar and watched as he made a fool of himself on the dance-floor so I took this as my opportunity.

“You know, we’re going to get in trouble if Caspar sees us sitting this close.” I whispered in her ear.

“I’ll let you in on a little secret.” She brought her lips to my ear and just the feeling of her breath on my neck sent me into overdrive. “I do what I want.”

I watched her pull back to take a sip of her drink and I couldn’t help but have the most ridiculous smile on my face. If there was ever a sign that she was into it, this was it. Before I could do anything else, (y/n) walked towards the dance-floor and joined the others. My eyes followed her hips as she danced to the music and everything in me was telling me to just go for it. Caspar would get over it. So I walked over to her and placed my hands on her waist. By this point, Caspar was so drunk I wasn’t even sure he’d remember this in the morning. (y/n) placed her arms around my neck and pulled my face closer to hers.

“What do you want?” I asked, continuing our conversation from before.

Her lips curled into a cheeky smile before she brought them closer to mine. “Take a wild guess.”

I let out a laugh before closing the gap between our lips. Our mouths moved in-sync and I couldn’t help but want more. Her lips tasted like a mix between alcohol and vanilla from her lipstick. I tightened my grip on her waist as I tried to bring her closer to me but because we were already chest to chest in the middle of a dance-floor, there was only so close that I could bring her.

“Wanna get out of here?” She whispered in my ear as if she was reading my mind. I took her hand in mine before heading out of the club, taking her back to mine and getting a hell of a lot closer.

A/N: I hope you liked it! Requests are open!

I love your art of robert in the bathtub, and also that you added the caption of mistakes happen, I thankfully haven't made one of said mistakes in three weeks, which is surprisingly good

Keep it up! :D

That’s kinda why I do it to characters, myself. Drawing out what I want to do, especially being invested in a drawing, helps me not do it. I get so invested into that the urges usually pass pretty quickly. Just finding a healthy way to get past those feelings and expressing yourself in better ways yknow

I wish the best for you, and thank you for the nice words lol <3

Kid Sleep Update

So, a week into the room sharing thing and it seems like both kids are adjusting really well. Squishy had one night of bad sleep, but otherwise has been sleeping more(?!) than usual. Naptimes for him have also been going pretty well. Maybe he’s just finally landed on a routine that’s working. Minky has been coming into our room pretty frequently this week because of “scary dreams” - usually around 3-4am, so we need to work on that, but otherwise we’re all getting pretty good sleep. Feels really good not to have to tiptoe into my own room when I head up to bed at night.

anonymous asked:

what are some things you eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner ? i've been eating the same things and its getting kind of hard for me >.<! thanks ! <3 :))

normally for breakfast I have a homemade smoothie (ice, frozen fruit, a bit of almond milk, liquid collagen and banana) , but sometimes I’ll have porridge or yogurt ~
for lunch, today I had prawn, crab & salad ! normally though, I have rice cakes with honey or whole earth peanut butter 🍯 bread is pretty unhealthy so I avoid it! sometimes I have soup (usually miso or pumpkin, they’re my favourite but vegetable is good too) or i have a small bowl of brown rice with veggies & kimchi, or salmon/tuna ~ if I am feeling not so lazy I’ll make onigiri or sushi!
yesterday for lunch i made kimchijeon, it’s not as healthy really but treating yourself is good sometimes ~
for tea I often make thai curry, it’s sooo good and I can’t eat quite as much since it’s spicy! Spicy food is good if you’re on a diet apparently!
I also like to have a brown rice bowl with beans & lots of veggies and tofu , it’s healthy! Other things I love are ramen (NEVER instant !! ever!) , ssäm (but i don’t eat meat so..with fish lol)…i love japanese food too and there are so many healthy options so I make Japanese food often!

I feel like that was really long yet really unhelpful sorry lol…
Ingredient-wise, these are the main ingredients I eat , which is hopefully helpful to mix & match:
- vegetables, also bamboo
- seeds, especially sesame
- fruit, mainly berries & banana & apples
- kimchi
- salmon, tuna, squid, crab, shrimps, octopus (i don’t eat meat, but if you do, chicken is healthy and other meats are less healthy)
- rice (usually brown)
- noodles, usually soba or rice noodles, but sweet potato noodles are amaaazing (I should buy them more often but they’re harder to find in England ㅠㅠ)
- egg
- tofu
- peanut butter & honey
- porridge

Hey! fellow INFP here, and I was wondering what you think the difference between INFP and ISFP is, bc i have gotten ISFP a couple of times, and I can relate to both sometimes. Love your acc! Have a lovely day! :)

Hello Fellow INFP

Thank you so much! I am so glad you like it :)

Fortunately I am lucky enough to have an ISFP blogger as a friend and our own ISFP Admin on our Introvert Chill blog to help me know the difference so we can get it from both side of the coin. 

Big shout out to @unlimited-goldfish for helping me out on this one and teaching me about the ISFP type. I definitely learned  :) Thanks Love <3
Be sure to check out her ISFP Blog, it is awesome!


So,
From an ISFP perspective:

“ I often think of IxFP as sister types in a way because they’re so similar I think one of the main differences would be that ISFP is more prone to be realistic as opposed to idealistic. Daydream as we might, we tend to come back to and stay relatively grounded in the world around us. For example, where an INFP might prefer a fantasy novel, I might go for a realistic fiction instead. Or I might prefer photography to abstract art. We’re also more likely to be physically engaged with our environment, in order to activate our aux Se. Finally, ISFPs are more likely to be more direct, literal, and factual in the way they speak, being very attuned to small details.”

From an INFP perspective: 

I would have to agree with what my ISFP friend said. She is right, we INFPs do use out intuitive nature which makes us able to look at the big picture and kinda “color outside the lines” if that makes sense. I look at the what ifs and live in the future A LOT and as an INFP I do use a lot of abstract thinking. 25 different directions. BUT with that kinda comes distractions too and procrastination lol We speak in more metaphors as well. It is that view that also gives INFPs the ability to break a person down pretty quick by the way they talk and their actions and even the way their body language is, as we see patterns of behavior and we get a pretty good sense of when a person is good or ‘shady’. We trust our gut and that is what we usually stick with.  We also feel very, very deeply for other especially those that we let in a love.

I hope that helps Anon! You can always message me if you feel!

Hi ! I really need some help . I'm 16 , 5'7 . Last time i checked i had 129 lbs and that was about 2 weeks ago . I really need to lose weight before school begins. I usually starve and eat as little as i can but my mother knows and it's pretty hard. I have a problem with binge eating . I did it twice in the past week and i feel like i can't lose weight no matter how hard i try. I want to reach my goal 120 lbs before school starts. Do you think it's possible ? What can i do?

Some quick binge eating prevention tips and inspration for your problem, also sorry for some typos. LY <3


1) Another diet is NOT the answer
There’s a good chance that a diet is what spiraled you into binge eating in the first place. I know that was the case for me. In the past I have experimented with several diets: low fat, low carb, and numerous others. And I kept looking for the diet that would end all of the confusion and allow me to escape the binge eating behaviors I had developed.
But thankfully I finally realized that another diet is not the answer.
In my experience, strict diets, especially those that revolve around limiting or completely eliminating foods, food groups, or macronutrients only add fuel to the binge eating fire.
The solution is not found in a diet, so don’t search for one.

2) Think ADDITION instead of RESTRICTION
This tip comes from David Dellanave and he posted it to his Twitter account a while back, and I think it’s so intelligently simple.
“In general I tell people to add instead of remove. When you add something, something else naturally has to fall away. Plus you’re focusing on an action you CAN do versus trying NOT to do something you’re already in a strong habit of doing.”
Don’t think about foods you should limit. For example, I love ice cream and I know it’s not something I should eat every day. But, instead of thinking, “Oh, I better not eat ice cream every day” I instead choose to focus on the foods I get to eat every day, and I make an effort to include a wide variety of foods into my eating regimen.
Restriction –> Binge Eating –> Guilt –> Restriction –> Binge Eating –> Guilt
As you can, a focus on restriction just leads to a vicious cycle of binge eating and guilt. Don’t think about restriction because it only makes things worse.
So ask yourself, what are you some foods you can ADD to your meals? You can even make an effort to choose a food from multiple food groups such as veggies, fruits, meats, dairy, nuts, etc.
Make sure you choose foods you like or new foods you want to try.

3) Stop trying to be perfect
I was once told that people who are self-proclaimed perfectionists are more likely to develop disordered eating behaviors, and I think they were right.
I’ve been a perfectionist most of my life. I even managed to get straight A’s in college, and I refused to settle for anything less. As a result I applied this same attitude towards my nutrition, which I believe also led me to develop disordered eating habits.
Before I became a compulsive binge eater, I demanded perfection and only ate “the best” foods. My diet was “squeaky clean”, whatever that means.
If I messed up, I gave myself hell and demanded better. All this ended up doing was making me miserable. I didn’t allow myself to enjoy meals, my favorite foods, or even family get-togethers filled with my favorite homemade meals because they weren’t “clean” enough for me.
After a while, all of this got to me. That’s when I really started binge eating.
I couldn’t take it anymore. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t be perfect all the time. So I started to say, “Screw it!” and cut loose. That’s when I’d binge eat anything in site.
I still remember the first time I lost control and experienced my first binge. It was scary. Little did I know it was the first of many.
“Perfect is the enemy of good” is a quote by Voltaire that basically claims that striving for perfection often results in no progress at all.
I also believe that to be true.
Once I finally stopped trying to be “perfect” I was able to relax.
Don’t look at things as if they’re black or white. You don’t have to be “perfectly on plan” or “completely off”.
There can be a balance. Learn to find, and live in, that balance.
Ditch the thought of perfection. You’ll be happier and much less stressed.

4) Stay off the scale
Many people who battle binge eating also weigh themselves frequently.
Get off the scale.
That number does NOT indicate your self-worth. That number does not tell you what’s really going on with your body. It does not indicate your success because that number does not define you.

5) Ditch cheat days
Some people claim a cheat day is the answer to their binge eating problem.
They’re “good” during the week and then one day, usually on the weekend, they go crazy and eat any and everything they want for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. I think this only contributes to the binge eating cycle. Because you’re only allowed to enjoy “forbidden” foods for that single day, you’re more likely to over eat AND eat foods you don’t even care for because of the fact they’re “off limits” every other day of the week.
Many people I’ve spoken to who have done the whole “cheat day” thing say they usually feel horrible that day, and after, from eating so much food. In my opinion, cheat days can also promote binge eating because you’re left thinking, “This is the only chance for a whole week I’ll have to eat these ‘forbidden’ foods.” As a result, people gorge themselves.
They end up eating foods they don’t even like and cramming as much food in their bellies as they can manage.
In my opinion, stay away from cheat days.

6) Celebrate ALL victories and don’t dwell over minor set-backs
My binge eating habits were so bad I would binge every single day. I think I went a month straight where I would binge at least once a day.
But when I finally committed to being kind to myself and taking things slowly, I remember the first day I went without binge eating in over a month.
And I celebrated this victory.
Sure, I ended up binge eating the next day, but I still celebrated that victory. Eventually I made it two days without binge eating. Then three. Then I’d slip, binge, and start back from zero.
But the point is that I celebrated every victory. Whether it was going a day without binge eating, being kind to myself, or engaging in positive self-talk I would meditated on the good things and not dwell on the negative.
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Celebrate whenever possible, even if it’s something very small.
And when you do slip up, don’t dwell on it.
I know it’s easier said than done, but when you do binge, don’t dwell on it for hours or even days afterward.
Just move on.
Focus on something POSITIVE instead.

7) Ditch the rigid rules
Ditch rules about what foods to eat, what not to eat, when to eat, and any other rigid rules.
Instead, learn to listen to your body.
You don’t need a book to tell you what foods to eat or even when to eat.
I encourage you instead to eat real, whole, natural foods most of the time. Eat when you’re physically hungry and learn to do something other than turn to food when you’re gripped by emotion and want to eat. It may take some time, but relearn your natural innate cues of physical hunger.
If you’re not hungry but want to turn to food, make an effort to do something else. An idle mind is often hard to combat, so try doing something physically active, get out of the house, go for a hike, or have a good conversation with a friend.
We’ll talk more about listening to your body in a moment …

8) Food may be fuel, but it should also be enjoyed
“Food is just fuel for the body,” some people exclaim. As a result, some people don’t care how their food tastes because they’re eating exclusively for the fuel aspect.
I’m not one of those people. I love food.
And I tried the whole “food is just fuel” approach in the past, and as a result I ate “healthy” foods I strongly disliked. I forced myself to eat them because they were good for me.
Likewise, many of my binge episodes consisted of foods I didn’t particularly like.
I’d eat any junk food that was around because I thought it was “forbidden” or “unclean”, and so I’d binge on it. I ate so many cookies, cakes, candy bars, and other processed foods I didn’t even think tasted good.
So the solution is simple — only eat foods you enjoy, whether it’s real, whole foods or some of your favorite not-so-healthy-but-delicious foods.
Food should be enjoyed.
No matter what you’re eating, make sure it’s something you like.

9) Put the focus on what your body can DO
In the midst of my binge eating habits, working out was a chore. It was something I did to punish myself for eating so many calories.
And I began to dread every single workout.
But, when I was applying some of the tips on this list to my eating habits, I decided to overhaul my approach to strength training.
I put the focus on what my body could DO, and nothing else.
My sole purpose and focus at the gym was getting stronger and becoming more awesome. Adding more weight to the bar. Performing more challenging bodyweight exercises. And this was a tremendous help to me. It allowed me to be proud of my physical abilities. To be proud of what my body could accomplish instead of obsessing over how it looked.
I appreciated my body for what it could do and what it was capable of.I now focus on, and am proud of, what my body can do.

10) Have positive support
For the longest time I didn’t tell anyone about my binge eating habit.
But I knew I needed help, and so I confided in someone close to me. Someone I thought would help me and be understanding.
Boy, was I wrong.
I was basically presented with a, “That’s not a big deal. Why don’t you just stop binge eating and get over it?” sort of response.
Oh, wow! There’s an idea! Why don’t I just stop?
Don’t make the same mistake I did. Tell someone you know you can trust and who will support you. Don’t surround yourself with jerks who basically make fun of you and claim you’re blowing things out of proportion.
Years later as my binge eating got worse, I took the plunge and confided in someone else. This time, it went incredibly well. This person didn’t judge me and was understanding and supportive, and this made a HUGE impact on me.
It was nice having someone to talk to who would listen without being condescending. Find someone you can trust, and talk to them. You can always begin with a counselor or someone who is qualified to help with disordered eating habits.

11) Focus on ACTIONS, not outcomes
Proclaiming, “I want to stop binge eating” isn’t enough.
You’re far better off focusing on ACTIONS you can take, consistently, that will lead you in that direction. Come up with some actions you can perform on a weekly basis.
Here are some examples:
Stock your house with real, whole foods you enjoy
Perform 3 strength training workouts per week and focus solely on what you can DO
Engage in a fun activity 1-3 times per week
Focus on eating your meals slowly
Say one positive thing to yourself every morning and evening
Eat slowly and savor your food
Write down these action goals and any others you can think of and strive to complete them each week.

12) How to handle binge foods?
Different things work for various people, but what worked for me was keeping the foods I’d most likely binge on out of the house.
Now these foods were not “off limits” by any means. I learned to listen to my body and if I truly wanted a common binge food, such as ice cream, then I’d go out and buy a pint, bring it home, and enjoy it guilt free. This is important — learn to eat your favorite foods with zero guilt.
So my solution was to keep common binge foods out of the house, but go and get them when I truly craved them.
If you live with someone who likes having a ton of snacks or other foods that tempt you around the house, then try talking to them. Hopefully they’ll understand and jump on board with you. This tip was very helpful for me, and over time, I was able to have previous binge foods in the house at all times without being tempted.

13) Stay away from “rapid fat loss” approaches
As a result of my binge eating problems I gained quite a bit of extra fat. And it devastated me. On several occasions I turned to “quick fix” approaches because I was freaking out and wanted to lose the excess weight immediately. All this did was make things significantly worse.
You must lose the “quick fix” mindset and avoid these methods at all costs. It sounds pathetically cliche, but you must take this journey one day at a time.
Remember to focus on daily ACTIONS you can control such as engaging in positive self talk, cooking homemade meals with new foods, focusing on your performance with your workouts, confiding in a friend, and other actions.
This is not about a quick solution. It’s about taking the time to heal and adopting a sustainable lifestyle approach that’s enhances your life and doesn’t dominate it.
You want to slowly develop eating habits you can sustain long-term.

14) Be patient
This isn’t a fun tip, but it’s important.
Throughout this process you must be patient. Don’t expect overnight results, and don’t give up either. It’s going to take some time to break the binge cycle in addition to other bad habits such as negative self-talk.
But learn to be patient. That brings us to the next important point…

15) Be kind to yourself
You’re going to slip up.
And when you do, you must be kind to yourself. Berating yourself when you binge or slip up only makes things worse.
Instead of calling yourself a “failure” or something similar, be kind to yourself. Realize it’s just a tiny mistake. Give yourself a break because you are trying your very best.
You are absolutely wonderful, and you need to know that.
You’re awesome and strong. Be kind to yourself.

Furthermore, this was mentioned in the positive social support tip, but make sure you’re surrounded by people who are kind to you, and people who know you are an amazing person.
Here’s a great quote:Being around people who are negative or put you can can only make things worse for you. Make sure you surround yourself with positive, uplifting people. If you’re not, then it’s time to make a change.

16) Know that you’re amazing as you are, at this very moment
My friend, you are not flawed. You don’t need to be “repaired” in any way.
Know that you are amazing as you are this very moment.
You don’t have to completely break free from the binge eating cycle before you can be amazing, because you already are.
Know that. Embrace it.

17) Learn to listen to your body
We touched on this already, but it’s something that really helped me.
Learn to listen to your body. Relearn how to identify physical hunger.
In the midst of my disordered eating habits, I couldn’t identify physical hunger. I lost that ability for well over a year, even when I started to recover from binge eating.
But I was patient and became more in-tune to my body’s signals.
Learn to identify physical hunger. And when you eat, eat slowly and savor your food. Listen to your body’s signals and identify when you’re satisfied. Make an effort to stop eating when you’re satisfied, but not overly stuffed.
Know that you don’t have to binge because you can eat again when you’re physically hungry. Again, this probably will take some time, but be patient and consistent.
Likewise, don’t look to diet books to tell you what foods to eat and what to avoid — listen to your body.
Eat the foods that make you feel best and cut back on those that don’t. You don’t need anyone to tell you what to eat.
Your body is smart, so learn to listen to it.

18) Stop focusing on fat loss
Chances are one of your primary goals is to lose fat. And if that’s the case, I’m willing to bet the way you eat and work out revolves around thoughts of losing body fat.
Well, it’s time to stop thinking about fat loss and adopt a more positive mindset and focus.
This was another important tip that helped me break out of the binge eating cycle, and I highly suggest you give it a shot. Click here for more information on this topic (but please finish the rest of this article as well).

19) Engage in positive self-talk
We commonly, and unfortunately, use words like “hate” and “don’t like” when referring to our bodies.
It’s time to change that.
Erase those words from your vocabulary and adopt positive, motivating, uplifting words instead.
Learn to compliment your physical abilities, personality, and even things you love about your physique. Focus on these things. You may have to apply the fake it ’til you make it approach, but it’s an important step nonetheless.
First thing in the morning say, and mean, something positive to yourself. It can be about a body part you like, a physical ability, or anything else. Just say something uplifting.

20) Be confident
I know how discouraging it can feel when you’re battling disordered eating habits. I asked myself more times than I can count, “Will this ever get better? Will I ever be able to go a day without obsessing over food and binge eating?”
Admittedly, there were times I thought I’d never break free, but then I changed my perspective.
I knew I could defeat this. I knew some day I could use that horrible experience for something positive.
And that’s why I’m writing this article.
It’s my sincerest hope this helps at least one person. If it does, then I’m grateful for the battle I fought, and won.
And I know that you can win, too.
Be confident. It will get better.

  • he had taken the day off to visit one of the company’s cat cafes (a project he had suggested), and maybe go for a nice dinner later, but he refuses to let MC out like that
  • “Jumin, hadn’t the cafe opened just last week? You can go, I’ll just… Rest here for the meanwhile.”
  • it’s not worth it without MC
  • he and MC still have an awesome dinner because Jumin’s chef had thankfully not left on a Christmas break

707

  • MC: asleep
  • 707: on the bathroom
  • Throwing: up
  • MC IS FORCIBLY WOKEN UP BY LOUD RETCHING COMING FROM THE BATHROOM
  • no literally, MC wakes up and Seven isn’t next to them
  • he’s throwing up in the toilet
  • turns out he accidentally ate very stale chips and downed them with an expired can of Dr. Pepper
  • look at what that did
  • “Seven?! Are you alright?!”
  • “Yeah don’t mind me just -blegh- puking my guts out”
  • no good
  • MC pats his back until he’s done then helps him back to bed
  • they get a big pail and put it next to the bed so Seven can not puke on the duvet
  • “Sorry Seven, but we can’t go to the petting zoo with you like this.”
  • noooo
  • he wanted to go so bad… they had even dressed up some animals in santa outfits…
  • “We can go next Christmas if you really want to see the goats dressed as Santa, ok?”
  • he’s still super upset he got sick
  • complains when he has to take medicine because it tastes worse than the expired Dr. Pepper did

V

  • he wakes up to the sound of someone rummaging through the bathroom
  • he walks there carefully- is it a thief? where is MC? are they safe?
  • he opens the door and is met with a familiar voice
  • “V WHERE DO YOU KEEP THE ALLERGY MEDS IN THIS HOUSE?!”
  • MC is itching, sniffling and coughing while they rummage around
  • it seems that one of his colognes gave them an alergic reaction
  • “I- I think they’re in the second drawer under the sink”
  • MC finally finds them, but the allergy isn’t dying down fast
  • “Sorry, MC… I’ll throw away that cologne right now, ok?”
  • he knows very well that he won’t be able to go out and eat dinner with MC and then take photos of them on the snow but that’s ok
  • it’s his fault anyways
  • “V, I’m sorry-”
  • “No, I’m sorry-”
  • Both V and MC are apologising like crazy calm down you two nobody caused this willingly

Saeran

  • he’s always gotten sick easily
  • low inmune system 
  • so when the coldness of the winter comes by it’s a guaranteed cold no matter what
  • still, MC hadn’t expected him to be so sick
  • he’s dizzy, sneezing a lot, has a runny nose, tired…
  • “Saeran, sorry, we can’t go on a picnic anymore. I can’t let myself ignore how sick you are!”
  • he… wanted to look at the sky as it snowed…
  • he and MC had picked a little park with a pagoda…
  • “It doesn’t matter, let’s go.”
  • MC shakes their head and sighs
  • “I’d feel terrible if you got more sick. …Please? I promise we’ll go out when you’re better.”
  • hearing MC’s voice like that, he grunts and goes back to bed
  • MC brings him medicine and reads him some stories to pass the time, since he can’t use his phone- looking at the screen hurts
  • he feels like a dead weight holding MC back, but when MC is smiling while talking to him, he realizes that maybe, just maybe, he’s not being annoying to MC, even if he ruined everything with his damn cold
