Break: A sequel to Surprise

author’s note: this is the sequel to surprise by @torontogawd what we started and as we saw so many notes of saying you want another part, i was willing to write the second part, hope you like it. also this is very unedited so pardon me x also this took me literally idk how many months i’m so sorry

“Girls, girls, take it little easier and more quiet! You’re waking daddy up,” they both seemed to be restless and very into making some pancakes before Shawn is waking up. The break had started two days ago and it had been really tiring all way back home to Toronto with your loving husband and with two twins. Ava was like little Duracell rabbit, she couldn’t even stay stable for one second but that’s where Shawn’s wife, Y/N, had to find something that both of them had fun to do and make.

“Mommy, Victoria isn’t helping me,” Ava’s whiny voice tinged in Y/N’s head, reminding that she isn’t okay with something. Victoria was tasting the liquid or tough of a pancake and peeked from her eyecorner that nobody can catch her.

I was wondering if there's a witchy version of 'crossing yourself' like Christians do? I think it's a powerful concept and I would love to have something similar that isn't associated with Christianity.

i dont think there is but i saw a cool art gif of someone who animated a witch drawing a pentacle with two hands that might work the same

(For the life of me though i cannot find it to show you ;A; )

How it started though was both hands at the “Top” of the star. Bring them both down and away (like forming a capitol A) take both hands and cross in front of your body (forming an X with your arms) uncross your arms forming the final middle line through the star~

If someone knows what gif thing im talking about and can link it in the comments will have my eternal thanks.

dearest sweet honey love, how do I hope and wish on love in my life? I want to be in love, i want to deeply be in love. how do I keep faith? how do I chime more love into my life? 💐🌸🌹🌹

angel darling! lately, when i find myself lusting for change and pining for something grand to enter my life, i find that allowing myself to be “hyped up” does such wonders. if i find myself slipping into unsureness or pessimism, i let the little light that rests deep within my heart to switch into its “on” position. it is the one that says, “you will achieve this! it will happen! keep believing!” for as silly as that may sound, maintaining such a positive level of dreamy optimism is what keeps me from becoming hopeless… it is what keeps my light from going out. ❤️ put love into this world. put love into yourself. exude brightness through smiling more, offering compliments to others, skipping every now and then. feel the bounce in your step. notice the little things. through putting such love into this world, it should be near impossible for you to not receive it back. 😌🕊

Wanna know why I love my mom? I’ll tell you why

Yesterday at dinner I said I might come over today for lunch since I don’t have anything to eat here so she said okay just let me know. So today she calls and asks if I want some left over taco meat and I was like ehhh no I’ll try to find something here. So I ask her a question about a soup we made last week and she’s like do you want me to bring you over something to eat? So she’s literally going through the house asking if I want all this different stuff and she’s finally like how about tomato soup? I was like HELL YEAH I can have grilled cheese with it. So she’s like do you have bread? Cheese? Butter? So my mom is literally driving over on her day off from work with soup, some cheese, a few pads of butter and two slices of bread for me because I have the best mom ever

I luv u Mama

Feel Good Friday

Anonymous’s Submission:

it’s awesome having a hyperfixion that you can have and it feels amazing to have them around!!

ifshehadwings’s Submission:

I think life would be really boring without hyperfixations. Like, it can be … inconvenient when it feels literally painful to try to think about anything else, but I really do love the intensity of that feeling when something is new and shiny and all consuming.

We’ll do it again next Friday. Please feel free to reblog and discuss how you experience the things people are talking about in this post. Do you also find them helpful or at least “not horrible”? If you think of something between now and Friday, please send it in and mark it for FGF!

Hello! Okay this is for the Yandere Match up! I have black hair with somewhat black eyes. I am incredibly small like 5'0 or 4'9! I love to write, whether it'll be poems, stories and more! I also love to sing, any genre, really, I tend to change my taste once in a while. Not only I love to write, I also love to read especially Fantasy and Romance! I am a very quiet person, likes the indoors! But I am of a ambivert that a introvert. I am very loyal, and I am like to respect other's opinions! :3

I’ll give you a yandere match up for the sake of the month♡

Your love is yandere Swapfell Papyrus(Slim).  

How creative you are. Slim finds the way you express yourself through art, such as writing, is very fascinating. Reading your stories is something Slim thoroughly enjoys doing. Slim may not look it, but he does love to read. He’ll sometimes even help you tweak your writing a bit. Since you’re also a lover of books, Slims buys you books quite often. If you’ve been especially good he’ll even let you choose which book you want.

You’re Slim’s easiest target honestly. Because of you’re quiet and loyal nature, Slim is never worried about you running away, or doing things that would cause him to have to punish you. He does not take pleasure in punishing you but will do so if he feels that you are slipping.

Slim trusts you an awful lot, so he doesn’t mind taking you out on dates and such when you’re in the mood. Slim does, however, use the height difference between you two to his advantage. When he’s angry, which doesn’t  happen often, he uses his height as an intimidation factor. Slim never uses his magic to pick you up. because of your height, he is always able to grab you himself.

Slim is a very calm yandere I would say, but he is quite possessive still. The good thing is, you don’t quite have to be on your toes around him, the downside would be that Slim is waiting for you to slip up. He does trust you, but in the back of his mind, Slim is paranoid that you’ll leave him. And he can’t let that happen

Interested in you…..Yandere Underswap Papyrus(Stretch)

Yeah…you’re in trouble if this guy falls in love with you. Stretch is quite scary at times. Unlike Slim, Stretch isn’t so, lenient. He wasn’t afraid to tell you of his feelings for you. Of course, you had to deny his feelings because you are already in a relationship. Stretch didn’t take that very well, and both him and Slim have gotten into a physical fight before. Since then you have kept your distance, Stretch is your friend, but you’re loyal to your relationship with Slim. Slim has been on edge ever since, and Stretch hasn’t given up. I wouldn’t suggest walking home alone. Not that Slim would ever let that happen.

I’m super excited for Thor Ragnarok and I know I’m gonna love it, but I can’t help but to be a little worried about the movie critics, I feel like they are going to hate on the movie so bad.

eh, whatever. 

it’s entirely possible! critics do not tend to love superhero movies in general, and that’s just kind of a truth. but if you enjoy the thing…

maybe I’m just used to the things I like not being critically popular, but I think it’s more important to me that I find something enjoyable. (what’s really hard is when the fandom doesn’t like the thing. I don’t give a fuck if the New York Times doesn’t, but it is challenging when other people in my community don’t.)

but based on what I’m hearing in early reactions, it seems like response is largely positive, actually.

anonymous asked:

(Not a confession) Can you sumbit confessions if they involve other shows/movies?

I’m gonna be honest: it depends if the mods get the reference. I don’t like making edits for something that I do not get at all, I feel like it’s missing something or I’m not doing it justice. Sometimes we can Google around and find what it’s referring to and piece something together, sometimes it’s not that easy or still doesn’t come across right, if that makes any sense.
If you’re going to send a confession about something that you’re not sure if we’d get, you can always make the edit yourself (be sure to follow our guidelines! under “Can I make a picture confession on my own and send it?”).

Vader’s devotion to the Force in a society where many people no longer believe in it, partly because of something he did, is interesting when you realize that the Force is the only connection to his past.

Vader, with the help of Palpatine learned to hate the jedi and everything they stood for but he is loud about his belief in the Force (“I find your lack of faith disturbing”), because subconsciously the Force has a lot to do with his past and his loved ones. And even though they are gone, his belief in the Force and willingness to hold on to it connects him to them. It offers him just a sliver of peace in his current state of pain (both physically and mentally). So like, I love Vader’s devotion to the Force. It is ironic considering that he took part in the jedi purge but it is the one link to his past that isn’t a living being.

Um hi? I really love this blog and I just wanted to ask something ;v;. So basically I identify as agender right now but I'm starting to think I might be FtM?? I'm not always dysphoric when presenting myself in feminine ways but get really uncomfortable when not binding. Is there anything I can do to help me find whats right? I've never really experimented much and am not sure of what to do//

Yes! Try on pronouns and, if you’re able to, different clothes. Experimentation is one of the healthiest things in the world. Take time and figure yourself out, it’s not a competition or a race.

The first time we met he kept going on about how soft my lips were so i said “yea i use this thing, maybe you’ve heard of it…its called lip balm” and then he went out and actually bought some for himself, he also bought some of the mate drink i like (its hard to find some fizzy one here like club mate) and yesterday he was like “i want to do something romantic like order food for us” but i had just ate my miserable pizza alone so we didnt but yea i’m like head over heals for this random boy who does basic things but what can i say, i love love

Falling in love is no simple task.

Sure, there are many beautiful women out there that catch your eye.

But what makes love so special is that it’s about a connection. It’s more than skin deep. 

Love is about being vulnerable.

Love is about finding your best friend.

That’s why you have to create opportunities to fall in love.

Find activities to do together. Of course you should go on dates and do things that are your common interests…

…but going beyond your comfort zone and doing something new is an excellent way to grow as a couple.

Look for exciting activities that you can both share, like going on a roller coaster or watching a scary movie. 

These intense experiences create a bond. 

Plus, when she’s scared she might just snuggle closer to you!

Ask each other questions. Find out where she’d like to be in ten years. 

Ask her about her life and talk about art together.

See how you both interpret things.

Remember, it’s not about having the same opinions but rather learning to see the world anew through someone else’s eyes.

WKM - What happened?

I’m going to cover all of this mess in this post. It’s just what I think could be the truly amazing story behind this amazing video series. 

There are LOTS of questions in my own head and I’m gonna try answering (hopefully) most of them! Here we go!


The biggest question raised is, obviously, who killed Markiplier? From what we could gather throughout the series, demons are likely to exist in this scenario.

Even the newspaper gives a hint that the mayor might have been a “demon in disguise”. So there are spiritual, supernatural things happening here. I, for one, can not answer the biggest question out of all, how he died and who he was killed by. I can only make one assumption; here’s my theory.

We know that Mark’s body went missing at some point. Where exactly is never shown or hinted at, but I have a likely theory that Mark himself was the one to hide his own body in form of his spirit. Or just, behind all that was happening in general. However, what we do know is that Mark, I quote (Damien): “(He) trapped us here in this broken shell and we had no way out.” 

It seems established that, during the time we were outside to talk to the gardener, Damien and Celine tried to reach out to Mark(’s ghost), hence she wanted to “talk to the dead”. During that time, Mark took the chance to inhabit Damien’s body and trap him inside his own, dead shell that could not be used anymore. Whilst doing so he either accidentally killed Celine by possessing her first, her not being able to hold the soul inside her body, OR Celine did not die and let Damien inside her body to save him from being thrown into the corpse, which would explain why she was red and blue in the end sequence of Chapter 3. She also appears to be having two pairs of eyes above her head at one point. Possibly a hint that she’s two in one at that point?

Either way, we know that Damien represents BLUE and Celine represents RED thanks to the ending of Chapter 4:

Which is why it could very well be that She kept Damien’s soul inside her body for a short while to save his life. And of course Damien was PISSED after that, betrayed by whom he cared for, who he fought Will for and whom he thought was a good, a childhood friend he could trust. That’s for the angry step towards us, the angry stare. He looks at us, knowingly. He chooses his victim that very moment.

We are told to run. The door closes and Celine does not come out. Her shell possibly broke and both souls were set free without a shell, or she kept it up and waited for the right moment to talk to us. 

The right moment being the time Will shot us.

And here is the thing; We did NOT die. If you listen closely, you can hear a faint heartbeat in the background during this very scene. They both tell you to believe them, tell you stories to make you feel sorry for them. Which, of course, you do. Damien seems pissed and loses his temper once more, like he did with the Colonel before, and shouts angrily that Mark walks around in his body. Which is why I think that part is true. He couldn’t take his anger in. He can’t, he has a low temper, that’s just it.

But Celine reminds him that he “can’t do this right now”. Reminds us to believe them. What you’re told is that Mark trapped both of them inside his old, dead body and that they brought you there so you have a chance to survive. Damien tells you that you can’t survive on your own and Celine says she can bring you back the same way she brought you there. But what Damien says afterwards is the most important clue.

He says: “But you can’t survive on your own. You’re .. dead, after all. (…) I know this all sounds crazy. Honestly, I don’t know what the fuck is going on. But I know that I trust Celine. And if you trust us … let me in. We can fix this.”

Gathered: Damien lies to you after all this time of actually being genuine. He was betrayed by Mark, knows that you trust him, wants revenge and is angry. He lures you into a false sense of security, tells you you can fix this together. He makes you feel like a friend by telling you that he feels the same way about all of this. And then, he mentions that oh so beloved trust of his. That one thing he completely lost thanks to Mark. 

Also important to note; It is ONLY DAMIEN that inhabits your body after all of this. Why is that?
Celine states that she can send “you” back, not “us”. She says “you” have a choice. And Damien ends his sentence with “let me in.” Not let us in.

You trust Damien and he tells you that it will work, he promises.

And it does work! You wake up in your own body, get up, meet the Colonel who is completely out of it by now.

He does not recognize us as a “Dark” or “Damien” because we don’t look like Damien yet and Dark doesn’t exist yet either. Damien, at this point, is inside our body and trying to take over. 

We listen to what Will says and see him, in desperation and utter confusion, try to find his dear friends he lost.

Once he’s away, only THEN do we walk over to the mirror. And here is where it gets interesting.

We take Damien’s cane: Take a look at the hands.

A thin, female and young looking hand (possibly Amy wee i love her), but then something happens.

The hand changes, transforms into a different one. Into a hand similar to Damien’s. Because Damien is inhabiting your body by himself. Celine is likely still in Mark’s body or, as I mentioned earlier, never died to begin with. It’s Damien who was so fed up, he had to use you to get what he wants. And he gets it alright:

A body. A shell to use as a puppet. He transformed your body into a copy of his own. Mark likely still uses actual Damien’s body, but Damien had to make you look like him to finish this with you. 

Then this happens.

And sad music plays in the background all throughout this scene and it broke my heart - but why did it break my heart? Because that right there is a representation of broken trust, my friends. Damien threw us out of the body he stole from us and trapped us either behind our screens or in that mirror (hence the weird noise light inside the crack). He used us. He manipulated us. We were his first victim.

And he feels bad about it at first. Note how Dark’s look changes after he throws us out? Because now we can see what he truly is; a broken man. He had so much trust in Mark, in us. He was a genuine, good and kind hearted man. He neglected his other friends for Mark only to then find himself betrayed by Mark or whatever he had unleashed that day. He is troubled, his emotions are a whirlwind and all the while he has to keep his anger inside. After all, Damien has a short and low temper. Guilty about what happened, he looks up at you.

Reminds himself that he has a goal now; take revenge. Looks at you now with almost disgust to make you feel even worse. This is a reflection of his own emotions that very moment. We are supposed to feel exactly what Damien felt. Betrayal, fear, loneliness. An end. The mirror itself is a genius metaphor for this.

He then leaves us. Clearly guided by rage and hatred and you can FEEL that, I get goosebumps just thinking about this. (@markiplier frickin amazing acting, dude!) Anyway, here he makes up his mind to take back control over what is rightfully his. Mark; his own body.

We are then left in darkness, questioning and clueless, sad and quite literally broken. 

Dark’s origin, ladies and gentlemen.

(just my take on this. It’s probably, like, super wrong lmao also sorry for the long post ilyall)


Aries; please don’t think that you’re not wanted, or loved. People need you, we need your fire and ambition; you light up the room and make everyone forget their worries.

Taurus; you will find someone to love as much as you love them, do not fret over romance. It will come to you in good time, you are like mother nature itself; beautiful but dangerous.

Gemini; do not regret the things you could have or have done, live for the present. You are a fresh breeze of renewal, just because you messed up in the past does not mean you can’t change the future. All will be forgotten and forgiven soon.

Cancer; don’t sit back and let things happen, you were born a revolutionary; a true leader! People respect you, you see something you hate - do something about it. Everyone will follow, don’t doubt your abilities.

Leo; you don’t always need to be a leader, it’s fine to be an introvert! You don’t always need to be the “popular one”, if you don’t feel like going out, then don’t. Do not feel pressured by expectations, everyone loves you.

Virgo; stop worrying! Everything doesn’t need to make sense or be immaculate, things will fall into place because everything happens for a reason. You’re great with everyone, you don’t need to be perfect.

Libra; it is natural to be insecure, do not hide it! you are beautiful when you share your insecurities, no one will judge you. It’s hard to put a happy face all the time, just be you.

Scorpio; DO NOT THINK YOURE NOT GOOD ENOUGH! You are perfect, and need to come to terms with yourself. You cannot love someone else before you love yourself. You are beautiful.

Sagittarius; you are not alone! It’s okay to be scared of loneliness, being alone can help sometimes but you have people who adore you and will help you get through anything! Just open up a little.

Capricorn; material things can’t give you pure happiness, you don’t need loads of friends to be happy. Love the precious gifts that are free, you give people a sense of comfort. Live for that.

Aquarius; you do not need to be flawless! Everyone has negative traits, and that’s normal. You don’t have to be the perfect son/daughter it’s fine to let loose and be something else. You can do whatever you want.

Pisces; do not be scared of what you say! you tread so carefully around the way you act, worrying that you might do/say something wrong. Be loud or obnoxious or even harsh, do not fret over what people think of you. Your pure innocence over laps any negative traits you own.

please love yourself, you are not worthless in any way. I hope you enjoyed this post❤️

The Astral Body

Disclaimer: Everyone’s astral experiences are different. While the astralling community may agree for the most part on the following things, you may still experience and believe different things. And that’s okay! ;D *musical flourish*

Originally posted by dimensao7

Your astral body can be wildly different from your physical body:

  • Sexual and romantic tastes can differ between astral and physical.
  • Gender and sex can differ between astral and physical.
  • Shapeshifting is possible with the astral body.
  • Even throughout different lives and forms, your being has a core that remains unchanged. This could be known as a “soul”.

There are different kinds of astral bodies/astral experiences:

  • Some astralling is not permanent; you make a body to astral temporarily and it vanishes/dissolves when you’re done.
  • Some astralling is semi-permanent; you have an astral self that’s “stored” in your physical body.
  • Then there’s physical semi-permanent where, on physical realms, you form a physical body but it’s only active when you use it.
  • Then there’s permanent-permanent when you’re “tuning into” another body/consciousness with its own life that does its own thing even when not in use.

Your astral body and physical body can influence each other:

  • Injury/sickness in astral can affect physical. For example, many people who have been in astral fights wake up the next morning with pains where they were hurt in battle.
  • Injury/sickness in the physical can affect the astral, but not as much as the reverse (as limbs can be regrown, the body is very “fluid”, etc.). For example, if you are sick in the physical, parasites may show up in your astral body, it may be harder for you to connect to your astral body, your astral vision may become blurry, etc.
  • You can get used to being one way in astral and then feel “off” when returning to the physical. You can have wings in the astral and then feel like you’re missing something when you return to your physical body.
  • If the astral body is killed or destroyed, it can regenerate using the physical body’s energy.

Your astral body can change depending on where you are:

  • You can remember some things better in the astral (past lives, astral experiences) than in the physical. They may be weakened, lost, or harder to recall when returning to the physical.
  • This is applicable to specific realms as well. If you have a fae-touched soul, for example, you may recall past lives while travelling to fae realms.
  • You may also experience shifts in your astral form depending on location. Some fae-touched people’s forms change when they are in their fae homeworlds.
  • Different astral realms differ in their effects on one’s astral body. Some things may be possible in one realm but not another. This can also be tied to one’s energetic makeup. For example, someone with angelic energies might have a hard time shapeshifting when in Hell.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the information!~











As soon as I finished [We Need to Talk About Kevin], I immediately had to call my mother and I needed to spend some time in the woods. I needed to play some music. I had to do some of the activities that best return a person to their most primal, natural state. That’s what I find after delving really deeply into a role is it’s best to just do something that levels you out, takes you back to a level basic playing field of human existence. Doing things like playing music, something that’s so natural and basic to human function, running around in nature, eating delicious food. These things are intrinsic in basic, primordial to human beings, so that’s sort of a way to return to a blank canvas, allowing my true personality to return.

We're Already Married

So, I am supposed to be working on a chapter of a story and an angsty oneshot. But this fluffy drabble had to be written. It just had to.

               “Draco, we need to talk.” Lucius told his son firmly as he and Narcissa walked into the room.

                “Mhm. Go ahead.” Came the little three-year-old’s distracted voice.

                Lucius rolled his eyes before stepping behind his son and peering down. “What in heaven’s name is that?”

                That had Narcissa circling the table and looking at her son’s face. His tongue was peeking out of his lips, eyes were narrowed in concentration while brows were furrowed and he seemed to be drawing something on a spare piece of parchment. She blinked uncertainly at the pure disaster of scribbles that were everywhere. If it wasn’t supposed to be a ball of rubbish, she honestly had no idea what her son was attempting to draw.

                “It’s Dobby. Can’t you tell?” Draco looked up with a wobbly lip and sad eyes as he pointed across the room to the house elf. As if the thought of it not looking like Dobby was a disaster.

                Lucius looked over for the first time and noted that the elf was in an odd pose with an apple balancing on his forehead.

                At his arched brows, Dobby hurried to explain. “Master Draco asked Dobby to be his muse.”

                “Is that so?” Lucius drawled with a heavy sigh. “Draco, you can’t order Dobby to play with you.”

                “Why not?”  

                Patience was not Lucius’ strong suit. He looked to the ceiling briefly before shaking his head. “We will have this conversation at a later date. There are more important things to discuss.”

                Draco hummed a little before looking up with wide eyes. “Am I in twouble? If so, Dobby did it.”

                A soft surprised noise emitted from the elf and Narcissa couldn’t help but laugh lightly. “No, you aren’t in trouble and don’t blame Dobby for things he didn’t do.”

                “Sowwy.” Draco apologized as he looked down at his hands.

                “Sorry.” Lucius corrected. For some reason, pronouncing R’s were hard for his son.

                Draco’s brows were pinched in confusion. “That’s what I said.”

                “No, you said—” Lucius paused as he decided to let it go. “Nevermind. What I have been trying to tell you is that we have come to discuss a pureblood tradition with you.”

                That had Draco’s expression souring. “No thanks.”

                Narcissa covered her mouth as she tried muffling her laughter. Salazar, she loved her son.

                “Draco.” The hard tone of his voice had his son straightening up and giving him a serious look. Finally.

                “When you come of age, you will be drawn into a marriage contract. This is something that most purebloods do and it is a standing tradition of the Malfoy family.” Lucius shot is wife a look when she crossed her arms. He knew that she didn’t agree and wanted Draco to find his own spouse but that wasn’t the plan.

                “I’m alweady mawried.” Draco interrupted excitedly!

                Lucius blinked rapidly. “You want to run that by me again?”

                “Hawwy asked me to mawwy him today! I said I would if he let me have his pudding. He did!”

                “And who pray tell is Hawwy?” Lucius shuddered at the pronunciation.

                “Hawwy is my best fwriend. He has pwetty eyes and he said I do too! We are mawried.”

                Narcissa smirked at her husband. “You hear that? He’s already married. Looks like that marriage contract is moot.”

                “Narcissa, you can’t possibly—”

                She stood up rapidly, holding out her hand for her son to take. “I can and I will. You want to explain to your son why he can’t marry his best friend? Because if so, you can deal with the aftermath.”

                Draco looked between them rapidly. “But…” His eyes filled with tears. “We alweady mawried.” The sniffle he released had Lucius closing his eyes. “Tomorrow’s the anni- anniver-” He scrunched up his nose as he looked to Narcissa for help.

                “Anniversary?” She offered picking him up and holding him close.

                Draco nodded rapidly as he wiped his eyes. “Yes. I want to give him a gift.”

                Narcissa smiled softly. “How about we go see if we can have one of the house elves cook him something. What kind of desserts does he like?”

                “Tweacle tawrt.”

                Lucius watched his wife and son walk out of the room with a shake of his head. He looked over and noticed that Dobby was still in the same awful pose. “Cease that at once.”

                When the elf let out a noise of relief, Lucius rolled his eyes. “What are the chances that I’ll get my way in the end?”

                He knew that Dobby couldn’t lie to him, so he was interested in hearing the response.

                The *pop* of the elf’s departure was heard and it had Lucius putting his face in his hands. “That’s what I was afraid of.”

it’s important to take care of your studies, but you need to take care of yourself! focus on little every day things that will keep you happy and relaxed! 

1. drink water. hydration will keep you healthy, alive, and functioning to your best ability! in between studying, make sure to continuously drink water. this will make sure your brain is active. if ever you feel really dull, wash your face and chug a glass. you’ll feel rejuvenated immediately.  (but do not drink too much water or you’ll deplete yourself of important body resources.)

2. eat fruits. even a simple banana or apple will do the trick. rather than drinking the sugary juices you can buy in stores, cut up a fruit and eat it while you do something. this will not only prevent you from munching on unhealthy snacks, but your skin will become fresh! don’t overeat the snacks that are full of calories. studying requires being pretty much physically inactive while our brain does all of the work. eat fruits, get your vitamins and important nutrients, stay healthy, and keep your skin glowing!

3. keep moisturized. drinking water will do half the trick, but make sure to apply some form of moisturizer. some acne breakouts are due to allergy, but most of them are due to dry skin. dry skin will force the face to make more oil which will clog the pores and cause a breakout. however, if you are already moisturized, your face will not produce extra oils. Make sure to wash your face at least three times (moderate based on skin type) a day aside from your shower to keep any grime from sticking to your lotion/cream. coconut oil is an amazing alternative that will keep your skin glowing, eyebrows healthy, and eyelashes long. (not for everyone)

4. smile. smiling will relax your facial muscles and make you feel (somewhat) better. you’ll feel positive and others will feel nice by looking at you too! radiating a smile from inside will project a good feeling outside, keeping you motivated at all times. try to be positive! 

5. keep organized. organization will make you feel less cluttered and stressed both outside and inside. you will get the feeling that you have your life under your hands and be able to find everything-do everything-you want. organization will create great habits for your future, too. try to follow a certain aesthetic (colour, furniture, etc.) that you love and this will guide you to a more organized, beautiful, and neat environment.

6. do things that make you happy. studying all the time will only get you good grades, which does bring some level of happiness. but pursuing a hobby will make you feel a lot better as well. take care of your plants, knit a sweater, go jogging. be active outside of studying, especially while doing something you love. meet someone nice, call a friend, hang with family. or just chill by yourself! all of this will cumulate into a healthy lifestyle.

7. think about you! think about your past, present, and future. worry about the things you haven’t done and comfort yourself with a plan to fix the problems. think about your goals and try to set them in place. plan and focus. remember all the great things that have happened and continue down the road of goodness. this, no doubt, will keep you always happy! and remember, do not stress. just breathe and think things through.
