god i need to start working

Alright guys.. I need help with runes! I have a beautiful carved amethyst set that’s just been sitting in my drawer for a year, untouched. I don’t even know where to start.. Can someone shove resources my way? Also, while I’m (sort of) on the subject, any info about Norse deities and how to start working with them, how to introduce myself, and Norse mythology would also be super appreciated!

So I have a fantasy society with very roughly 1830s technology. I'm fine with that, and I know how their medicine works. The thing is they're in contact with a much more modern society that's convinced them to start trials runs of aseptic technique and anesthesia instead of relying on the will of the gods to keep surgery patients alive. I need to know what can be done without an electrical grid, and what equipment can and can't fit through a five foot diameter magical portal.

This is VERY cool. I like this ask. You get a star.

So there are a few ways you could run some anesthesia between worlds.

Things that require no power, ever, except possibly to make:

  • Disposable materials including scalpels
  • Antiseptics
  • Drapes
  • Actual literal doctors to do the training
  • Concepts like germ theory, surgical time-outs, etc.
  • Diagrams, textbooks, charts, journals, data
  • Airway equipment (laryngoscopes, ET tubes, etc.)
  • IV supplies
  • Medications (not those that need refrigerated though)
  • Non-powered beds for positioning

Things that require power but can be run on batteries:

  • Cardiac monitors / defibrillators
  • Ventilators
  • IV Pumps

Things that can power things that require power but can be run on batteries:

  • Batteries

Things that would be nice but require power:

  • Anesthesia machine
  • Powered beds

They’ll want to do surgery in a room with a high window that faces the sun (light is a Big Deal™ during surgery). They’ll also want that room to be clean (and easy-TO-clean), equipment for washing hands, and more.

Also remember that it’s not just tools and technology that your advanced society brings with them. Surgical techniques have improved A LOT. They’ll have a great deal to teach.

Just don’t forget that this kind of thing can breed some significant arrogance in the more modern side, too, and not everyone is willing to meet people where they are. I can see a HUGE fight going on over something as simple as handwashing.

Best of luck withy our story!!

I swear to god, this will sound super fake and everyone will doubt that this happened but it absolutely did and I’m still not over it.

When I was first starting out at my work, there was a regional issue with fraudulent checks. So I had this huge drunk guy write a check for about $80 and try to walk away with the bags before I even touched the check, never mind that I needed his ID too. So that’s blatantly theft, and little 18 year old me spoke up and told him that he couldn’t take the bag yet.

He started screaming at me and just freaking out (looking back I realize he was probably also drugged) so my manager had to run up front and try to handle the situation. This asshole swung the bag, hitting another customer, and my manager called the cops right there.

So my poor manager (6'5, full grown man) was blocking Raging Asshole from getting behind the counter and attacking the other cashiers, while being on the phone with the cops, and described the Asshole as “about five foot ten, flag tattoo on his shoulder, reeks of whiskey, and weighs around 300lbs-” and the dude cut him off, screaming “ALRIGHT JACKASS IM SIX FOOT AND I ONLY WEIGH 270 IM NOT SOME FUCKIN PIG ALRIGHT” and we were just like… ok? So my manager holds up the phone and asks if he’d like to give his name too. To which Raging Asshole yells “YEAH ITS (real name) BETTER MAKE FUCKING SURE THEY GET THAT RIGHT TOO.” and after a bit more screaming, he stormed out of the building with the bag in hand. The sheriff came back to us later that night to collect the security tapes and said that it was the easiest arrest he’d had to make in a long time, seeing as the dude was sleeping at his house when they got there to arrest him.

Tl;dr: dude robbed a store while drunk (and high?), raged, got offended because we didn’t think he was six foot, told the police his real name, went back to his actual place of residence after robbing a store.

Oh Captain! // Steve Rogers x Reader (P1)

Pairing: Steve Rogers x POC Reader, Nat x Bucky (WinterWidow)
Word Count: 2k+
Warning: Language, Fluff, Smut, ‘Captain’ kink. This is a bit of a slow burn. I’m not sorry. 

Summary: How is Steve supposed to resist you when you call him Captain like that? How is anyone supposed to resist those god-forsakenly beautiful thighs? Naturally you both have to fuck it out; your only choice really. WinterWidow makes a brief appearance. Bonus: Tony Stark’s seal of approval.

A/N: Idk why my fics keep starting in the gym, maybe it’s a sneaky way of telling myself I need to work out more. Lmao, ignore me. I’m so sorry. This was supposed to me a short 500 or so word one shot but I’m a goddamn wordy ass ho with no self-control and a shitty understanding of the word ‘short’. Happy New Year everyone

yuri!!! on ice has peaked a lot of interest in skating,

so i thought i would give some advice to beginners, from someone who’s been skating for 11 years.

(disclaimer: i have literally never ever worn hockey skates so some of this might only apply to figure skates)

  • if you’re buying your own skates, get them sharpened. they can usually do this at the store.
  • make sure your skates are tied tight!!! loose skates = broken/sprained ankles
  • ice rinks are indeed cold. you will need a jacket (until you start to work up a sweat)
  • wear a helmet when you go on the ice until you get the hang of it. please for the love of god i don’t care how uncool you think it is protect your head the ice is unforgiving.
  • you won’t be good at it right away! be patient with yourself. try to skate at least once a week if you’re actually intent on learning.
  • skates do not feel like regular shoes, they will sometimes hurt and give you blisters, especially if you haven’t broken them in yet. (but you know what they say, no pain no gain.)
  • get back up if you fall down. literally and metaphorically.
  • when you’re done wipe down the blades of your skates with a towel so they don’t rust.
  • make sure you have skate guards, most floors (besides the rubber they have at ice rinks) will ruin your blades.

if anyone else has any advice for beginners feel free to add! skating is really fun and i’m glad more people are taking an interest in it!

Loving Boyfriend

request: Hey hon i would like to request something if you’ve got the time cuz i rlly love your writing Like when u get off work and you’re like really tired and he picks you up form work and takes care of you and he is like being really sweet


You yawned for the tenth time in three minutes, and glanced at your phone for the time. It was nearing eleven at night, and you groaned and leaned back in your chair. “God, it’s so late!” You grumbled. 

“Yeah, tell me about it.” You friend and coworker, Leslie, agreed. You two were stuck ao work, as you two needed to finish an article and segment for the news tomorrow. “How early did you get here?”

“Eight-thirty.” You mumbled, laying your head on your desk. You texted Shawn, asking if he was still awake.

“Jesus! Go home, I can finish this.” Leslie’s eyes widened, she didn’t start till noon.

You yawned again, and nodded. “Thanks, Les.” You grabbed your keys and turned off your computer. 

“Wait,” Leslie looked at you. “Make Shawn pick you up. I don’t want my friend to drive while she’s this tired.” She looked at you, and you sat on the floor, nodding. 

“Ok.” You dialed Shawn’s number, deciding to call him instead. “Hi, babe. Could you possibly pick me up from work?” 

Yeah, give me like ten minutes.” You thanked Shawn and hung up, and moved so you were laying on the floor. 

Ten minutes later, Shawn texted you that he was there, and you said goodbye to Leslie and met him in the lobby. “Thanks for picking me up.” You kissed your boyfriend and walked out to the car together. You figured you’d have Shawn drop you off tomorrow so you could drive your car home. 

“No problem, babe.” He pulled out onto the road and looked at you for a moment. “I’m glad you called, I don’t want you to drive if you were this tired.” 

You smiled, half asleep. “That’s what Leslie said.” You figured you fell alseep for the rest of the short ride, because next thing you knew, Shawn was waking you up at home. “I’m so tired.” You whispered. 

“Just an elevator ride and the walk to the bedroom and you can sleep.”

You smiled, walking into the apartment complex lobby. 


Opening the door to your apartment, you tossed your keys into the bowl next to the door and toed off your shoes. You bypassed the kitchen and walked right into the bedroom, and Shawn followed. You changed out of your work clothes and into a sports bra and cropped leggings, and Shawn took off his shirt. He had on basketball shorts already, so he just hopped into bed. You crawled in after him, and curled up against him. “Mm, love you Shawn.” 

“I love you too, baby.” Shawn whispered. “Go to sleep, you deserve it.” He kissed your forehead and you smiled, falling right to sleep.

On Her Period Sentence Starters

“You know, if I was pregnant, this wouldn’t be a problem.”
“Am I dying? I feel like I’m dying.”
“At least I know I’m not pregnant…”
“I don’t even want kids! This is stupid.”
“I can eat whatever I want. I deserve it.”
“How have I not passed out from bloodloss? Seriously.”
“I hate everyone. And everything.”
“Why does God hate women?!”
“The government needs to start paying for tampons.”
“I just want to curl up in a ball and die.”
“I don’t want to go to work. Why do I have to go to work?’
"I’m just sick and tired and bloated and gross.”
“I’m so hungry.”
“I hate my life.”
“Where is my heating pad?!”
“People should just stay clear of me during this time in my life.”
“I’m too sensitive. And angry.”
“I’m so horny but I’m so gross.”
“I thought it was only meant to last like 5 days. What is this?”
“ I’m seriously going to kill someone.”
“Oh my god oh my god oh my god I think I’m leaking.”
“Fuck. I just sneezed. Oh, that did NOT feel good.”
“I think it’s creeping up my back, END ME.”
“LEAVE ME ALONE TO DIE.”
“There is nothing ‘vagical’ about this!”
“I’m on my period. According to society, I’m allowed to be a bitch.”

2016 lessons

1) The importance of the Sabbath. I always thought that since Jesus came to fulfill the Law it meant I didn’t have to follow this rule anymore. Even though it isn’t required of us, I wholeheartedly believe it is vital for our lives. As Jesus said in Mark 2:27, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” God created this day of rest for our souls to rejuvenate and prepare for the next week! This means not working but instead taking time to rest, read His Word, spend time with your loved ones, reflect on the week, and plan goals for the next week. For me, I started to turn off my device(s) every Sunday. I needed a break from social media and all the noise. I would take things slow and reflect on my thoughts and my feelings. This has been the biggest and best decision I made this year.

2) Take things slow. We live in a culture that is so focused on rushing and deadlines. Let’s set ourselves apart by slowing down and taking time to reflect on ourselves and our lives. Jesus took His time healing and talking to others. We should follow the example He set for us. 

3) Life with Jesus is beautiful but it isn’t easy. There will be periods of time where we won’t hear Him at all and where we will feel like He isn’t there at all. Stay steadfast, spend time in the Word, and keep on pursuing Him.

4) Take care of your body. We are each given a body on this earth and it’s our responsibility to take care of it well. I do this in the form of nourishing my body through lots of healthy food and water. I also work out as much as I can and sleep at least 9 hours a day.

5) Be alone. Fall in love with your own solitude. Don’t rely on others to fill in the empty spaces in your heart. They’re going to disappoint you. Take time to know yourself better. When you do this, you’ll start to love yourself more. Eat alone. Drive alone. Do things by yourself.

6) Create! Take photos, write down your thoughts, keep on creating things. 

7) Keep a journal and write in it daily. I love my journal. It’s weird the first few days but it starts to become second-nature to write down your thoughts. It’s really therapeutic and relaxing for me. Write down what God is doing in your life. Then when hard days come and you don’t feel Him there, read through those past entries and remind yourself of His goodness.

8) Devotion. Take time to read His word alone daily. Find a secluded space where you can go everyday and spend time savoring His presence and His Word. 

9) Make your first thoughts about Him. When you wake up in the morning, say a silent prayer before you go about your day. Ask the Holy Spirit to move and work through you. Try to read His Word before you turn on your phone. This has helped me tremendously because I feel more centered and filled with the Holy Spirit before countless distractions start to bombard me like texts and emails.

OH MY GOD ok so dearsheroozle was sick and requested a Sweaty Engineering!Asami and Flustered!Korra drawing and I as usual made this way harder and more complicated than it needed to be and didn’t plan it out very well at all and had to just sort of make it work and anyway here it is 

SHEREE I HOPE YOU LIKE IT BYE

like,,,ive been in emergency situations before (obviously not as dramatic as jack’s) but when it happened i didn’t freak out and go “OH MY GOD WE NEED TO CALL THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW” i did what i needed to and was really calm the entire time. i didn’t  have time to panic or even think about what was happening. 

about an hour after i suddenly realized what happened and started shaking/crying/panicking/whatever.

BASICALLY what i’m getting at is that jack’s probably going to have a moment of “oh my god i killed someone after he’s out of danger, bc that’s how the mind works so you don’t just shut down in emergencies.

so i decided a couple of weeks ago that i want to be a high school health teacher and really push comprehensive sex education even though high schoolers are the worst but god knows this fucking country needs it and eventually i want to start an outreach organization and go speak at schools n stuff bc this shit is so important !!

First progress picture! Let’s consider this my “before” photo. 
It’s not before starting working out, god I wish I had one of those :< but this is my starting point as of starting this blog soooo let’s call this the “before blog”. 

I’m really trying to get control of my eating habits. I love food. Iat  love it so much. I love carbs more than life itself so it’s been kind of tough learning the discipline I need to make good choices. I’ve recently switched over to 80% pescatarian diet sans eggs and lactose. The other 20% of the time I will eat meat and cheeses because they’re honest to god my favorite and I believe that moderation is key to sustaining these kinds of changes. 


Goals

I’m in no way overweight or unhealthy, I’ve always been a pretty active person but my health has been neglected often. I used to have an amazing metabolism and it helps that I’m quiet long in terms of fat distribution. My fat grows in my thighs, butt and belly (literally none going to my chest :’( ), in other words I’m bottom heavy but I also concentrate a lot of my lifting on my legs and glutes. 

Where I’d like to see some improvement is in my waist and muscle definition. I’m trying to work up to visible abs and reducing fat in my core while also decreasing fat in my hips. Also build definition in my legs, butt and arms. 

I think I’m at a good place already but there’s definitely room for improvement!

Almost 90 days

I’ll hit 90 days clean again this coming Friday and oh my god I can’t believe it. I might actually break my record (94 days) and things are coming together for me. I’m out of work but I started working out and looking for a job and I’m feeling pretty good right now.

It’s possible y'all. I believe in you and if you ever need help I’m here for you.

Stay safe everyone.

I work at a fast food joint and my usual pattern is to take two or three orders and then get them ready. Today the second order I took was quite a large one whereas the one before was pretty small. So I quickly do the first one so I can concentrate on just the large one. I give out the first order and as I look down at my till to see what I need first a customer comes up and immediately starts their order. It really annoys me when customers do that. God damn wait for a server to call for the next customer, we have other orders!!!
