getting some shit done

What I’m most excited about for GOT season 8

Alright, as excited as I am for Gendrya reunion, Jonerys castlesex, Jon/Arya reunion, Jonerys baby, Cersei final takedown, etc., you know what I’m most excited about?

I’m most excited about Jonerys finally being ‘proven’ endgame so J0nsa/antis can finally STFU. As much blocking as I do when I see anti stuff come on my dash (trust me the list is fucking long) - and yes, usually I just block instead of engage with this idiotic people because he, I like taking the high road most of the time - this evening I STILL got some stupid J0nsa meta about how Jon came up with the idea to ‘play’ Daenerys and go undercover. And it wasn’t short. If it were a word doc, it probably would have gone on for several pages. And I’m so bloody sick of it.

Like seriously people, you hate Daenerys so much, stop fucking watching! She’s not entitled. She’s not a villain. She’s not mad. She’s not a white savior figure. She has not had everything handed to her. She has suffered tragic losses and her life has been hard as fuck. Yes she’s got dragons but even they have caused her pain and suffering - when Drogon killed that little girl, having to lock them up in the pyramid in Meereen, losing Vision, etc. - as much as she loves them.

And Jon, I can’t even with this undercover bullshit. They all use the Ygritte thing as an example that Jon is playing Dany but seem to forget or leave out one key detail…JON FELL IN LOVE WITH YGRITTE ANYWAY. He was infiltrating the free folk and yet, Ygritte was his first love. So that argument is completely bogus. So if Jon is playing Dany, why does he bend the knee after she agrees to help him?? Hmm? Makes no sense. Alright, okay…Let’s say he’s still playing her because he doesn’t believe she’ll follow through. Then why does he declare for her in front of Cersei in the Dragonpit meeting, totally screwing them over, infuriating Cersei, and alerting her to their alliance? Okay, okay, say he’s still playing her. J0nsa evidence of this is when, in their private dragon pit convo, Dany says “I can’t forget what I saw North of The Wall, and I can’t pretend Cersei won’t take back half the country the moment I march North.” So apparently this leads Jon to think she might still bail. But, Cersei comes back and agrees to help. They’ve won! Team Dany heads back to Dragonstone to plan their trip North to fight the army of the dead. Yay! Jon got what he wanted. They are literally on the fucking boat north. He knows Dany isn’t bailing. She’s on her way to help him. So why…WHY then does he seek her out and have sex with her, if he’s soooooo in love with his sister???  Because he’s somehow omniscient and knows Cersei will betray them?? Uhhh if he’s so fucking omniscient, why the hell did he even go on the wight hunt in the first place and then call Dany for help when he realized the mission was going to fail, risking her life and her dragon’s lives when they are the only things that can help him? If Dany had died saving him up there, he wouldn’t have access to her armies or her dragons. They wouldn’t follow him. So obviously, he can’t think that far ahead. Jon is an in-the-moment kinda guy. And even if he somehow was thinking Cersei might betray them and sleeps with Dany to get her to want to stay and fight with him (uh, even this logic is not sound), he’s already seen Dany is willing to put things on hold for him and risk her life to fight to save him - wight hunt disaster as example. So when they find out Cersei is betraying them, he already knows Dany isn’t the type to turn her dragons and armies back around and leave him stranded, especially if she’s in love with him…which apparently he’s using to his advantage, right? 

Fucking stupid. 

Sorry, rant over. This just gets me so mad! J0nsa’s make no sense. And I CAN’T WAIT of them to be proven wrong when season 8 comes around. It will be such sweet victory. 

But then again, you know, when Jon and Dany are happy with their three kiddos in the five years later scenes, J0nsa’s will probably be like…well, he still loves S@nsa but he got Dorito knocked up so he wouldn’t just abandon her because he’s a nice guy…but he still loves S@nsa. SMH. Ugh.  

i’ve been wanting to do FE x animal crossing for years and it has happened at last dkjfldf

also have some variants!

#BendyHTtakeover Recap

((so I’m gonna compile all the Good Shit from the #BendyHTtakeover event into one post okay here we goooo))

  • Sammy has been writing music for most of his life, “from a young age […] tunes would pop into my head, [writing music] was the only logical step. ;)”
  • Willow Weep For Me” is Sammy’s favorite song, he apparently considers it modern. what time period does this game take place in jfc
  • Sammy made a handful of puns during the event. Puns are great.
  • Apparently he liked Bacon Soup at one time, but “it kind of lost its luster after a bit.. But you’d have to be crazy to not love chocolate cake!”
  • Putting on pants is apparently a struggle for him.
  • Someone asked if Norman was behind the organ from chapter 2. He responded with “The organ… I don’t know what you mean. Although Norman, our projectionist, he was always very bright..” which might be a hint to something, a compliment, or another pun - who knows.
  • An ad for a Little Mermaid bedspread got posted in the middle of the event, probably on accident. Someone joked “Sammy’s favorite Disney Princess is Ariel, confirmed.” All he had to say was something was amiss with the post, and the bed looked comfortable.
  • Sammy still writes and sings music when he’s not praising Bendy, and has written “so many dozens of songs! So many! When you’ve been in this business as long as I have… you’re quite busy.” He also said “Perhaps you shall hear them someday.” pls
  • His clearest memory of the studio besides the ink pump is “a whistling sound, a vague melody.. with a sinister purpose.”
  • When asked for advice on composing music, he responded “Music is all about layers. Rich and lush. Practice, my friend. That’s what it’s all about!”
  • Wally’s catchphrase is apparently contagious. Someone asked “Sammy, what would happen if Wally lost his keys again?” To which he responded, “That Wally! That man can’t ever keep his things in order! If I didn’t know better I’d say his mind was wayyyyy out of here!”
  • Headcanon confirmed, “Sheep Songs” is Sammy’s favorite song he wrote for the Bendy cartoons.
  • He wears the mask to “resemble the most perfect form I know!”.
  • He might not be able to see without the mask as well, someone later asked “how do you see with that mask?” and he replied “how do you see without yours?”. Might have just been a joke, or confirming the “ink monsters can see through Bendy’s eyes in cutouts and posters” theory.
  • Sammy thinks Susie is “A charming woman.. quite… charming.. I recall only her face… that.. smile.”
  • He took some selfies for us.
  • Someone asked how he felt after what happened to him at the end of chapter 2. “I can’t recall any injustice on the part of the Ink Demon. He is.. most fair.” Apparently he’s fine with being pancake’d.
  • “Who’s better? Bendy, Alice, or Boris?” “There is only our lord Bendy.”
  • What makes Bendy so worshipable is that “[He] knows all and sees all. He is the hope we’ve been waiting for!”
  • “The last I can recall… I had a flowing cascade of brown hair.. I miss it so… or was it blonde? No matter.. it was splendid.”
  • He regrets never going to Coney Island.
  • Someone asked what he thinks of Alice “Ohhh such a voice! So.. heavenly! So beautiful!” Tied with his earlier comment about Susie, this makes Samsie shippers such as myself rejoice.
  • He is honored that people write songs about him, and Bendy.
  • He doesn’t only make puns, he memes. According to him, “if you have the proper training, mayonnaise IS an instrument.”
  • His favorite instrument is the banjo, he was always fond of it and it “plucks the right chord with me”
  • He thinks bacon soup can be good, “it’s best when aged for a while I hear.”
  • He’s happy Joey let him name the song “Sammy Jam” after himself.
  • Someone asked if he had a special someone before becoming an ink monster. His answer was a flustered “Someone.. special? … I.. well.. there was.. this one. I almost remember.”
  • He doesn’t quite know where Joey is, but he thinks he’s off raising his salary somewhere.
  • He doodles Bendy sometimes.

i’ve been really productive the past few months, which is actually quite rare for me bc i’m a slave to procrastination i get burnt out v easily. this time was a little different, i managed to keep my productivity levels really high for a whole 2 months all the way until exams ended, studying every single day without fail, around 10 hours a day, when i used to only do an average of 3 or 4. so here’s what worked for me and what didn’t!

what works: schedule your day

what happens when ur a virgo studyblr? u plan. i would write out everything i needed to accomplish for the day, the night before, and be really specific about it. i would then plug in the timings, this works for me, but u can choose to put the time in first and plan what u want to do around the time. 

a structured time plan pressures me and i end up getting everything done, especially when i set an alarm on my phone for all the timings!

what does not: cramming a lot of hours into a day

12+ hour work days are ideal, especially when u watch all the ‘study with me: 14 hour work day!’ youtube videos, but they are just tedious and unreasonable. 

let’s face it, even if u do complete one or two long study days, ur just gonna get bored and tired and have no mood to continuing this for a week or more. slow and steady wins the race!

what works: tweaking the pomodoro technique

i hate the pomodoro method. at the 25 minute mark, i’m normally on a roll and super focused on the task; and the 5 minute breaks were too short for me to actually take a break. 

that’s why i tweaked it to 45-minute study sessions with 10-minute breaks, and after 3 study sessions, a 30-minute break. longer study sessions meant i get a break when i really start to get restless, and longer breaks gave me more time to recharge. i suggest tweaking this to match what works for you.

what does not work; doing too many / too little subjects a day

1. u don’t want to cram all the same topics and subjects into one day. ultimately, it’s a choice of spending 8 hours solely on a subject / topic and not touching it for the next few days / weeks, OR doing just 2 or 3 hours of one subject / topic each day over a few days / week

2. just thinking about doing only one subject for a whole day already tires me out. i have tried it, but normally i get so sick and tired of it that after a few hours, i can’t bring myself to focus on it any longer. on the contrary, if i keep switching between subjects, i get super confused because i have to remember too much of very different info. 

what works: leaving the last portion of your day ambiguous 

i like to start and end my days early. but in the process, i found a benefit of ending them early: i end up w a chunk of time at the end where there are two scenarios:

  1. i’m super motivated and want to continue studying
  2. i’m rly tired and cannot bring myself to continue bc i need a break !1!!

surprisingly, option 1 does happen a lot. and i think this is a rly good work-life balance. u don’t get burnt out easily, but from time to time, u get a bonus extra few hours of work done! 

what does not work: forgoing sleep

sleep is so important omg. 3 hours of studying while sleepy = 1 hour of studying when ur refreshed and ur brain’s working. a tired mind is a slow mind, and an awake mind is a fast mind!

do not worry about that rly hard chapter that u must understand and complete! ur mind continue to works even when ur sleeping, i assume bc it’s rewiring and sorting through new information. after waking up, i find myself being able to better remember and understand information that i struggled on the night before!

what works: finding out ur energy levels and use it to ur advantage

some people work best at 6am and can’t focus after 9pm, some people can’t focus before 11am and work best at midnight. take note of and chart ur energy levels throughout the day for about a week or so, are u particularly refreshed in the morning? do u feel urself always dozing off at 4? are u the most productive at night? 

work ur body clock out and work around it! every body functions differently! like in the last point, 3 hours of studying at ur worst energy levels = 1 hour of studying at ur peak energy level! forcing urself to work when ur body refuses to do so will only lead to procrastination. 

i sincerely hope these few tips can help u out w being productive! what are some of the things u do to get shit done? 

Hey, you

If you want a shot at getting a crappy spn doodle from yours truly in your inbox reblog this post ;0

For @hitamory’s fic, Pulling The Wires

ANGST ANGST ANGST
WHEN DO THEY KISS KISS FALL IN LOVE

i hate that being awake during the day is “normal” and staying up all night/sleeping late in the day is “shameful” for so many reasons. first of all, fuck societal norms. i don’t care when the sun is up and people shouldn’t have to feel useless because they’re not up at the ass crack dawn to plow their fields. second of all, a huge chunk of people with sleep schedules like that are naturally nocturnal and being awake at night is just more comfortable, it makes more sense to their internal clock. third of all, another huge chunk of people with schedules like that were forced into them by graveyard shifts and when they’re done working they deserve to get to go home and sleep through the day without feeling like shit for it. i get that daylight is the best time to get some shit done but i hate that sleeping at “inappropriate” times is considered gross and detestful. let people sleep when they want without judgement.

Has anyone else considered how incredibly hilarious it is that, in the first episode of Rebels, they establish the Empire as villains by having two Imperial officers harass a man for selling food without a licence?

Like, yes, by all means, Aresko and Grint were being total dickheads and could have handled the situation way better. It was an obvious display of gross corruption and power playing over a farmer who’s just trying to make a living, but the main focus was on the fact that he needed a licence in order to trade things. It was showing that the Empire was trying to enforce control over everyone - even by forcing farmers to get a licence to sell their crops!! How evil and monstrous!!

……..Except literally every first world country requires that you have a license to set up a stall/shop and sell things? Especially with food? Like, of course you need a license to sell food. Food need to be regulated to make sure it won’t, y’know, kill anyone? And it also needs regulations to make sure it isn’t getting sold at ludicrous prices? Price gauging - it’s a thing, and I have no doubts there were some pretty awful examples of it during, for example, the Clone Wars, where on Lothal there was a drought and a plague that was destroying all of its crops and killing all the wildlife and it’s heavily implied that a lot of people died during this time due to starvation.

Like maybe if they established that it was really expensive to get a license or something I would have understood, but they don’t? So all I can assume is that you just gotta go to an Imperial office and purchase a simple piece of paper? And, in that day and age, on a planet with such a small population, with droids that can run multiple calculations per minute, I find it very hard to believe that he’d have to spend multiple hours acquiring such a license? Like??

But nnnooo, regulating trade you guys,, it’s just,, pure evil,, wow,, I cannot believe the Empire for such a terrible thing,, gosh

hands up if you agree that being in a rut is the worst feeling ever. it just sucks to be in a rut, wanting to do things but just cannot get yourself to do them. but don’t you worry friend; I got you.

step one : acceptance

first thing you got to do is accept that you’re in rut. you’re in a rut but you want to change that, right? let’s begin!

step two : figure out why you are in that rut

here are some general reasons and solutions for you being in a rut :

1/ you have had a couple of rough days because of some issues say relationship and family issues -
solution : call up on a close friend and take a day off with him/her. you might also want to talk it out with that person because talking helps; i promise.

2/ you are stressed about upcoming deadlines be it exams or assignments -
solution : study for the exam or work on that assignment now, yes now. after you’re done, take a day off to do your favorite thing, whether it is shopping, or going out with friends, do it; you deserve it so much.

3/ you’re burned out, stressed and/or tired -
solution : take few days off. you won’t be able to focus at all, and taking rest will do wonders. you might also want to de-stress (by yours truly) and do some self care (by @stuydies)

4/ you are dreading a event in the near future -
solution : yo fam, stop worrying now. you have no control on that event whatsoever and it won’t help stressing about it. what will come, will come and when it comes all i want you to do is embrace it.

step three : getting back to reality

now that you’re done resting, its time to get back in track with your work and something you want to do when you’re in a rut is to go baby steps.

here’s some things you can do to get into that ‘get-shit-done’’ mood -

  • ‌clean your room; vacuum it, dust those curtains and fluff up those pillows.
  • ‌go for a long walk or a run to get your blood pumping
  • ‌dance to some music with fast beats
  • ‌write down the things you got to do
  • ‌break all those above tasks into really really tiny tasks (say, a - write down the topic, b - find the first point to write about and so on)
  • ‌then just say “she believed she could and so she did” and just dive right in, you got this!

step four : those laid back days

these are so essential, I swear. this is especially important when its just been days with you getting out of a rut.

you can, for example, work for one day and you take the next day off. after a few days of this, you can change it a bit say, you work for two days then take the third day off and so on. most importantly, don’t hurry yourself. go slow and be patient, you’re going to do great things lovely.


and that’s it, it’s a wrap! if you’re in a rut - trust me, you’ll get out of it soon enough. I hope this helped you in some way, remember to stay wonderful love! :’) x

if you have any questions regarding anything I said up there, feel free to send in a message!

go check out my other masterposts here and you can always send in a request for a masterpost as my ask box is always open!!

much love, Taylor  (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡

So, I hadn’t really intended to address the matter but I’m receiving a lot of asks and pm’s about it + it’s in the press here so i might as well just get it out of the way real quickly. 
Two metastases (new tumors created by the main one) have been found in my dad’s liver and it’s shitty but that’s just the way it is. I’d rather not discuss it and while i really am super appreciative of all your support and kindness I would rather not receive asks or stuff about it. I’m finishing up final exams and shit and i just need to focus on the things that i actually have control over (like my grades). 
so thank you all and i hope this answered your questions. 

And this week’s most ridiculous complaint about reverse goes to:

“there is far tooooooo many mistakes either grammar or spelling or typing. Also there is very few phisical description of the caracters as they come into the story. Not a story that can read apart from fandom”

*bangs head on table*

Yep. Yes. Totally. Because the goal of fanfiction is not to be a part of fandom, and repeated physical description of the characters always improves a story without fail.

I used to wonder why people referred to ffnet as the Pit of Voles. Would you look at that, now I don’t.
