go test yourself

I'M LIKE HALF ASLEEP SO HERE IS SOME GOOD OL' DOT GIVES ADVICE

I never post, nor does anyone care to look at my post, so might as well amirite? This is probably going to turn into a vent at some point.

OKAY FIRST THING FIRST. YOU ARE A VALID HUMAN BEING. YES, YOU. THE ONE READING. YOU ARE AMAZING AND KEEP DOING WHAT YOU’RE DOING SO SOMEONE CAN GIVE YOU 1000000 SMOOCHES. IF YOU DON’T THINK YOU’RE GOOD ENOUGH TO DO THAT THING, WELL YOU NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU TRY.

Alright, second thing. Don’t let others define who you are as a person. Easier said then done, I know, but its a work in progress. If you can’t get those negative comments out of your head, embrace them in a postive way. So for example, lets say someone calls you ugly. WELL GODDAMMN, YOU ARE SO UGLY THAT ITS STUNNING. See? Putting things in a more positive/fun light makes the world seem a lot warmer. Fat? Nah, I’m preggers, and the dad is Markiplier. Weird? Well, at least I’m more intresting to talk to then you are. Selfish? I mean, gotta think about yourself first. Go die in a ditch? Ooo, you could turn that into a song. Like a shitty, emo song and you could make a lot of moola. I think you get the point

Third, don’t change yourself for people. If you wanna change, it should be because you want to. Unless you physically or mentally hurt someone on purpose, you shouldn’t have to change. You, my friend who is reading, are a lovely person who needs love and hugs. COME TALK TO ME I’M LONELY LIKE 25/32.

Fourth, and foremost, teach yourself how to love yourself. Now, that’s a hard thing to do, I understand. I still can barely love myself, but I don’t hate myself anymore. It’s a step in the right direction. But, you have to remember that with bad things, there are good things too. You may have flaws, but you’re still a good person at heart. You don’t have to force yourself to love yourself, but you can learn to hate yourself less. Imagine talking to someone you love and they hated themselves. What would you tell them? If you love them, what gives you a reason to hate yourself? Of course, everyone’s problems are diffrent and I will never know everyone’s story, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try. You’ll never know what you can find on the other side. Sometimes bad, sometimes good.
But that’s what makes life worth living right? With everything bad, there’s something good and something worth living for. Life is a fun ride, you shouldn’t get off it yet.
Unless you threw up on someone on the way, then start running before they catch ya. People are spooky when thrown up on.

So that’s some advice I could offer. Yes, they are very cliche, but you’d be surpised on how many people still don’t listen to them. Perhaps it’s because they are so oversaid, that maybe people are sick of it. Not to sure.

I do hope whoever took the time to read this, will take what I said into consideration. I also hope you learn that I become x10 wiser when I’m so tired I could be convinced as drunk. It’s like 6pm.

Robin’s Nest: Part 1

Summary: The Robins as Bruce and Batmom’s biological kids.

Words: 1252

AN: Thank you to my wonderful new team of Beta’s who edited this and are working diligently on everything else.



Despite getting married at a very young age, you never had a deep desire for a big family. In fact, you’re not even sure you want children. You’re fairly certain that parenting books caution against raising children in a home where crime fighting is more of the family business than running Wayne Enterprises. You spend a lot of late nights monitoring the computer in the Batcave while Bruce fights crime.

When you’re not fighting crime you and Bruce tend to either be working or at some sort of function. You know Bruce wants a child someday, but for the moment you’re both content with your lives. In fact, the only one who isn’t is Alfred. He’s worse than the press when it comes to babies.

He hints about them all the time, usually when he has you alone in the Batcave. On the flip side, he tends to corner Bruce in his office.

You’ve been married three years when Bruce comes home early from a business trip. You haven’t taken your birth control in a while, and both you and Bruce are feeling a bit forgetful when you fall into bed that night. You honestly don’t think of it again, until Mother Nature skips you two months in a row.

You’ve always been regular, so you have a pretty good feeling as to what is going on, but you want to make sure. You know it’ll be nearly impossible to go buy the pregnancy test yourself without being noticed, so you’re forced to ask Alfred to pick one up when he goes to the store that day.

He agrees, with this huge smile on his face, and you’re almost certain that he actually skips to the car. When Bruce asks you what’s going on, you tell him. Plus, you figure it’s not a particularly good idea to keep a possible father out of the loop.

“Remember that night, two months ago, when you came home early from that trip?” You ask.

“Yes.”

“We didn’t use any protection.”

“You’re …”

“Possibly. Alfred is picking up a test at the store.”

Bruce just nods, “That explains the skipping.”

          You just nod. You wait together in the den, in complete silence. The humming is the first thing that alerts you to Alfred’s return. You go to meet him together. He has three different bags, all filled with pregnancy tests. You ask about groceries, and he simply tells you that he’ll go back out for those later. When you question him about the twenty different pregnancy tests, he says he wants to make absolutely sure.

          You’re suddenly really glad that you drank all that water today, and that it’s Saturday. You go through all twenty tests, and the three of you all wait together. When the timer goes off, it’s Bruce who goes into check the tests. He’s already memorized all the different symbols for positive and negative.

He comes out five minutes later looking a bit pale. “Positive, all twenty are positive.”

          Your stomach heaves at the weight of that statement as Alfred cheers. Both you and Bruce are scared out of your minds over the next several weeks. You both devour pregnancy books in anticipation of your first prenatal appointment.

          You’re still worried out of your mind at the idea of being responsible for another life, but then you hear the heartbeat and every worry you have melts away. One look at Bruce tells you that he’s feeling the exact same amazement as you are.

          You have to deal with morning sickness for several months, and you’re oh-so-grateful when it finally goes away. Of course, cravings set in the next day, and Bruce seems to kind of regret living so far from town when he’s forced to go constantly into town for your latest cravings.

          Bruce is all about baby-proofing, but he doesn’t hire a company to do it—he does it himself. There’s covers on all the outlets, locks on cabinets, and soft things on the corners of all the antique coffee tables. You think it’s very sweet.

          You go into labor at work, in the middle of a board meeting. Your water breaks while you’re giving your presentation. Bruce is at your side in thirty seconds flat, and then you’re surrounded by men, being ushered towards a company car. You’re rushed to the hospital where Gotham PD is attempting to keep photographers back. You’re whisked into a plush, private room. Fifteen hours later, you give birth to a little boy. He favors Bruce, but at the same time he’s his own person. Although he does have your eyes.

          Running a finger down the side of his cheek, you marvel at the softness of his skin, and the way his mouth opens and closes. You hand him over to Bruce, who holds him with a little bit of hesitancy, but he’s supporting the head and doing everything lamaze classes taught him. As the baby falls asleep in his arms he looks at you with all of this love, wonder and amazement and says, “Thank you for making me a daddy.”

          You just smile and say, “Thank you for making me a mommy.”

          You’re kept in the hospital for three days. They want to make sure the new prince of Gotham and his mother are one hundred percent okay before they let you go home. Bruce sleeps in one of those uncomfortable hospital chair, refusing to leave your side. It takes you and Bruce about a day to decide on a name. Finally, you decided on Richard Thomas Wayne, after Bruce’s grandfather and father. “Dick” for short.

          The day you take Dick home, Bruce is the one to carry him. He’s locked safely in his carry car seat, and you make sure a blanket is fully covering him, protecting your baby from the vultures outside.

           You’re ready to hiss when you find out that a full police squad is already out there attempting to keep the photographers back and that you actually have to wait for more men before going out.

          You keep your back straight as Commissioner Gordon personally escorts you to the car. You get in first, accepting the carrier from Bruce and locking it into place, before Bruce gets in. The next several nights are rather busy. Bruce has to go out as Batman to keep people from speculating. He typically waits until Dick is asleep before going and is usually back as you’re finishing his feeding.

          The next several months are filled with sleepless nights and spit-up. When Richard is four months old, you set up a bassinet in the Batcave so that you can go back to monitoring the computer. Bruce slowly gets back into the groove of batman but is typically home a lot earlier than before. At six months, Richard is sleeping through the night without any problems, but you and Bruce still like watching him sleep for a bit before going to bed yourselves.

          One night as you’re watching him sleep, with Bruce’s arms wrapped around you, you admit it, “I love being a mom.”

          Bruce just smiles and kisses you before saying, “I love being a dad.” Together, you both smile and go back to watching your son sleep.

Summary:

Clarke hasn’t gotten to talk to Bellamy at all. She left science island to go to Polis, but the meeting started before she could see him. When he joins the gathering, he won’t meet her eyes, she knows something is wrong.
When it’s over, he grabs her wrist and pulls her into a closet, where they talk, finally, and he isn’t happy with what she’s done. But it’s time to get it all out.

Notes:

this sucker did not want to let me end it and now i’m mad at it. sorry for the awkward summary. here. take it. you deal with it now.

Clarke made it to the conclave before Bellamy did. She was looking for him in the crowd when she got there, but he didn’t show up until after the meeting had already begun. She couldn’t go over to talk to him like she wanted. She saw him, filtering in with Harper and Octavia and Monty. She wondered if Kane had had them on an errand, but there was no chance to ask Kane, standing next to her, before he was already speaking for Skaikru.

Clarke joined in when it was demanded, but for the most part, they only needed her for her presence. The great Wanheda, there to represent the power of Skaikru, dressed in that heavy old coat and her shitkicker boots. But not really doing much at all. Clarke had even managed to add in some semblance of the hairdressing crown they’d always had her wear as Wanheda in Polis. She’d started strong with a french braid at the top of her head, but kind of lost speed with a few more little additions and just tied it off behind her head. She couldn’t be bothered. She still wasn’t sure why she had to go for fancy hair anyway.

Clarke tried to catch Bellamy’s eyes across the hall, but he stood with his feet braced and his arms crossed over his chest, scowling. She thought she would catch his eye a couple of times, but each time she looked over, he was looking away. The muscle leaping in his jaw.

A pit opened in her stomach. Something was wrong. And for the rest of the meeting, she couldn’t get him to meet her eyes at all.

When the meeting finally broke up, and the ambassadors and coalition leaders were milling about, Kane and her mom having serious discussions about things that were just housekeeping and not anything she needed to worry about, a hand wrapped around her wrist and pulled her through the crowd.

“Bellamy!”

He didn’t respond, just lead her through the crowd and into the hall and down it into a small room with only a high open window, up near the ceiling, letting in light. The door closed behind them, although she could still see light through the cracks, and hear people passing in the hall.

“What did you do?” He asked, his voice gravelly and dark.

“What?” she shook her head confused.

He raised her arm and pulled her sleeve back up to her elbow, exposing the small bandage still wrapping the puncture mark, and the black veins running from beneath it.

just a friendly reminder to those getting their SAT scores back today:

  • it is NOT a measure of your intelligence 
  • some people test better than others naturally 
  • its a piece of garbage with no value
  • you will have a future even if you bomb it
  • you don’t have to go to college to have a life 
  • these things might be thrown out in the near future anyway
  • even the SAT people know the test is complete BS
  • me, a humble shitpost farmer who joined the fandom for memes, looking out over the dark horizon: Johnny, bring in the fic concepts and get Dot to help you cover the headcanons. It's about to get stormy in the discourse tags.
  • Johnny: Why, ma?
  • me: An update's coming. I sense... Kent.

–Continue testing–

I posted this ages ago after @alluringhemlock asked for advice on studying biology and now it is back with a snazzy new header! So here’s what I came up with. I’m going to give some things which work well for me and some general tips that apply to everyone!

  • Be constantly testing yourself.

When you’re reading a textbook or going over your notes, test yourself. When you reach an important bit of terminology, test yourself to make sure you know what it means. If a process is referenced but not explained, see if you can go over it in your head without looking it up. Anything, you don’t understand either look up straight away or make a note to revise it later.

  • See what you already know

This is a little like the previous method but instead of testing yourself as you go along, do it before you revise. Choose a topic you’re going to go over and just see how much you can do before you look over it. This can be really helpful for prioritising sections of your work and can boost your confidence before you start revising! Just be careful that you don’t neglect certain areas because you knew it fairly well before - there is always room for improvement.

  • Snowball method

Start simple and build your way up. For example, when revising kidneys I might first learn to label a diagram of the nephron. Next, I learn the functions of each different part. After that, learn how each different part works to carry out these functions. I find this method really useful for when I feel like there is far too much for me to learn. Start out with the basics and move up in manageable steps. You’ll get there.

  • Go back over your notes

This is better explained here but basically; go over your notes. I like to go over my notes in the evening on the day of the lessons and then again at the end of the week. It doesn’t have to take that much time but it will really help your retention.

  • Learn the terminology

The mark schemes for exam papers, at least in the UK, are specific. If you don’t use the right words, you won’t get the marks. So learn them. Make flashcards, write out long lists, use them wherever you can just make sure you know them!

  • Past papers

Past papers, past papers, past papers. I find that one of the ways I learn best is from making mistakes. So do those papers, make those mistakes and learn from them. Past papers are also really useful for figuring out the way you should be writing, how much you should be writing, and the types of words you should be using.

  • Be in all the lessons!

I can’t stress how important this one is! For me personally I find that if I missed a history lesson for whatever reason, it wouldn’t be too difficult to catch up. This is because, at my level of study, history is mostly just learning facts. Biology, and other sciences, require a full understanding of the subject. If you don’t have that, you won’t do as well, and it’s so much harder to get a good understanding when you’re copying someone’s notes rather than listening to the teacher explain it.

It is so easy to lose yourself in this world. The amount of money you have, the grade you got on that test, the way that person treated you.. all the struggles that you have right now are just temporary. If you’re having a rough day… Keep going! You are worth so much more than any of that. You matter and you are worthy. Don’t let anything in this life get you down. You have the power to see the world in a beautiful way. Do it for you. It will be okay.

BITCH ASS MOTHERFUCKER I WILL FUCKING SLAY YOU DONT FORGET THAT YOU FUCKING SON OF A FUCK FUCK YOU AND YOUR FUCKING MIND I WILL END YOUR LIFE KILL YOURSELF YOU FUCKING JACKASS FUCK OFF AND GO FUCK YOURSELF!

(Part Two) Where the truth is that he only stays with is girlfriend because without her he'd be homeless. So girls, if you have been with him, go get yourself tested ASAP. And if your thinking about going with this dirt bag just know it will only be sex and he will play with you to get you in bed and promise you the world to leave you feeling used! So just stay clear!

Okay, thanks anon! (:

Studying biology!

A couple of weeks ago @alluringhemlock asked for advice on studying biology so here’s what I came up with! I’m going to give some things which work well for me and some general tips that apply to everyone! 

  •  Be constantly testing yourself.

| 19.03.16 | Hello! Here’s a tiny brain dump for my language learning tips to cheer up your Saturday. 

1.  Focus on getting that accent right. You can be the best at using the subjunctive mood in your class and know over 1000 words for snow, but if your accent sucks, it’ll be very hard for native speakers to understand you immediately. Also getting that accent down at the beginning will stop you from forming bad habits that might be tricky to get out of further down the line. 

2.  Shadowing is one of the best things you can do for speaking practice. It feels silly, but shadowing (talking alongside an audio file/native speaker, saying the exact same thing - not repeating after them) is great for practicing your accent and intonation and getting your mouth and tongue used to the speed of natural conversation. This is the book I use for Japanese.

3.  When you remember something, you’re actually remembering the last time you remembered it, rather than the first time you learnt or experienced it. (Does that make sense?)  This is why cramming does not work, but spaced repetition does. In Gabriel Wyner’s book, Fluent Forever, they suggest to learn a concept only enough until you’re able to reproduce it once without looking. Then afterwards, test yourself (recall, not review) multiple times. The longer you can go without testing yourself and still recall the information, the stronger those memories become.

And that’s it for now! Please feel free to share your own tips. :) ~ Pippa 

i could....

tell you… but do you really wanna know?? or matter of fact… would you really believe me?? or better yet… would you even care?? no no no… how bout would you be able to let go of the past for .25 seconds and try to even contemplate a future with me??? 

you know what… i know what im doing. and i know where im going. and im getting there. with or without you.

the wiki is wrong. again.

(undertale spoilers)

this dialogue occurs on the ninth “talk” in a pacifist-neutral route. to test this, mod ellipsis did the fight over and over. each time, “talk” was used 30+ times. each time, “all you can do is FIGHT” ONLY occurred on “talk” #9. just now, mod comicomi did it three times. each time, on the ninth “talk”, the dialogue occurred. one of these days, i’ll stream it to erase all doubt. in the meantime, feel free to try it for yourself!

according to the wiki, it occurs randomly after the fourth “talk”:

but somehow, i don’t think it’s possible to be lucky enough to get it on the ninth try every single time. but this wouldn’t be the first time the wiki has gotten something horribly wrong.

hilariously, the wiki claims that the “no one will ever love them” dialogue only occurs on the fourth “heckle” ACT. i’ve gotten this after one “heckle”. i’ve gotten this after eight. i’ve proved this in streams over and over. this particular event is one of the rare instances of rng in battle in undertale. 

don’t trust the wiki. test things yourself.

madisonland-deactivated20161117  asked:

Hi!! I have a BIG history test coming up on the history of Africa and I was wondering if you could give me some study tips. I'm a visual learner if that helps!

Y E S OF COURSE I HAVE SOME STUDY TIPS FOR YOU

First off, let’s start with some links!

You said you were a visual learner. Well, all I could think of that I’ve learned in my time as a studyblr is that visual learners love to have all their information splayed out in front of them in organized fashions.

Here are some mindmaps!

1) This one you have to download but it looks really easy to use and has a lot of color and design options!

2) This one looks really simple and clean!

3) This is for if you’re on an iPad or prefer to work on an iPad.

4) This is really organized-looking and seems to allow you to integrate and import images and files and other things from Google Drive and lots of other programs!

How to make a mindmap:

  • Skim the chapters you were assigned in the textbook to read, and read the introduction and closing paragraphs, section guides/goals, headings, and words, and write down important-looking dates and terms, and also the captions under graphs or pictures
  • Type the main point of the chapter’s title and add questions (5 W’s if you can’t think of any)
  • Read the chapters again, and diagram the subject headings and add key points as sub-points to the map
  • Make sure to add vocabulary and key terms and dates

And since you’re working on history, here are some timeline softwares in case you’re like me and are totally helpless in history unless you understand exactly the order in which events occur.

1) This can let you use a whole ton of different symbols and create a legend and add your own pictures and stuff!

2) Here is another clean and neat program for you if that’s what you’re into.

3) This is just a different layout but looks pretty simple and easy.

4) This one looks like you can jam a lot of information into it!

And now for the tips!

  • Make sure whatever notes you take are in chronological order
  • Establish a connection between the facts (the mind maps and timelines should help)
  • Flashcards are always great for cramming because you’re (hopefully) writing down all the information you need to know and reading over it to force your brain to recall the information: here is my guide on history flashcards
  • John Green’s Crash Course videos are always great for last-minute studying!
  • Look up multiple choice exams online to test yourself
  • Go into your notes and highlight your terms
  • Try that thing out where you present the information like you’re teaching someone the things you’re studying
  • Make sure to create strong pictures in your mind while you read 
  • Copy down diagrams
  • Replace words with symbols or initials, it can speed up the process of study notes and helps visual learners to associate symbols with concepts rather than words
  • IF IT’S AN AP

What happened? did someone infect you? You only get an HIV test if you think you have exposed yourself to risk – for example, if you have had sex without a condom with someone whose HIV status you do not know, or if you have shared injecting needles or drug equipment If you are a sexually active gay or bisexual man, is recommended to have an HIV test at least once a year or more regularly if you have unprotected anal sex with new or casual partners. You should tell Daminous and he'll killem all

Ok, sit down and calm yourself for a just a second.

First of all, it’s HIV test week, many HIV charities and NHS organisations are working really hard to promote testing. This is very important - not just among the gay community - because it normalizes getting tested, helps you know what to expect and gives you the assurance that you are clean.

Everyone in my youth group got tested - half of them aren’t even sexually active! It was a way to show them how easy it is to test for HIV. You don’t only test for HIV if you think you’re at risk. I have never had ‘risky’ sex, yet I have been tested a few times because it’s important to me to be sure I’m clean. Therefor I can always be sure when I say 'I don’t have anything’.

I hoped that the tweet I posted would encourage other people to get tested, and make it a regular part of their lives. You can never just assume you’re clean because you’ve been safe.

Go get tested, give yourself some peace of mind, and don’t take it all so seriously - I’m not getting tested because I think I have it. Even if I was, isn’t that the responsible thing to do?

((actually I have Denmark! I colored him in a little for you. I remember taking the SAT *hated the practice, but I didn’t have choice either* some of those tests can be pretty important and it actually helps a little to take a practice first. though I was more concerned about the ACT because colleges really look at that. good luck on your test  and go make yourself some tea or hot coco , that always makes me feel better :)   ))
