Hey guys! It’s finals season, so I thought I’d share some ASMR videos that help me study!

To start, you might be asking yourself “What the heck is ASMR?” According to Google, “Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine.” This video and this video do a pretty good job of describing it. 

While ASMR is commonly used to relax/fall asleep (I use it for this too!), I find it to be very effective for concentrating as well. Personally, studying in a quiet space can be uncomfortable, but I don’t like listening to music because it can be distracting. ASMR videos are like background noise, and that’s why I like them for studying! 

For me, the best videos for studying don’t include talking (I find it distracting), I prefer light scratching/tapping sounds, but everyone is different! Here are a few of the videos I listen to while studying/working: (make sure you wear headphones/earbuds, it sounds much better!!)

I love that idea and I want to hop on but I can't choose what kind of patches should I get?

(Anon is referring to this post, for followers who may have missed it.)

It really depends on what kind of correspondences you want, but I’ll make a little list of the ones I can think up. I can’t find all my exact ones but they’re more or less the same as ones I use.

  • You could sew a lightning bolt patch onto your raincoat or your power outfit for extra confidence when you’re wearing them. There’s also things like suns, clouds, rainbows, whatever for weather magic.

  • You could sew a rose patch or a heart patch onto your date outfit or an outfit when you’re trying to attract somebody. It’s trendy to have these things on your jeans right now, so if you’re like me and have that one pair of booty jeans.. Perfect.

  • Animals of all kinds. Goldfish, to signify wealth and you could put that on your wallet. Tigers for power, if you wanted to put it on the inside of a nice suit or something similar. If you have a familiar, there’s probably a patch of it. There’s also a billion different types of birds.

  • There’s lots of food patches for kitchen witches. These types would look nice on aprons or chef uniforms I think. I know a lot of people might like these lemon patches to signify renewal, or wine patches for communion/sharing. Any kind of correspondence with food works really.
    • (For example, I shared a loaded philly cheesesteak on my first date and now it’s a really romantic food in my eyes, so if there were a cheesesteak patch i might put it on the inside of my purse I wear on dates.)

  • Green witches and divinators might like some dandelion patches. Green witches may also like some other plant patches such as this one, this one, these, or any of the other millions available right now.

  • Space witches might appreciate that there are planet patches. I linked to the set I’m buying once I have a little more money.

  • Pop culture witches might want to buy their favourite characters as deities or energies to keep around. There’s a bunch of hello kitty, miss piggy, betty boop, and all kinds of them.

  • Both tech and pop witches might also like emoji patches

My arm is falling asleep and I’m a little bored of making this list, but if anyone has ideas to add then please do!

Be careful — hackers are hiding viruses in online movie subtitles

  • Security research firm Check Point revealed a new exploit on Tuesday that affects several media players.
  • The vulnerability allows a hacker to infect your device and gain full control through through subtitles.
  • The exploit, which puts 200 million users at risk, impacts video players and streamers like Popcorn Time, Kodi, Stremio and VLC.
  • Here’s how it works: malformed subtitle files allow hackers to embed code into the subtitle files in popular pirated movies and TV shows.
  • Subtitles are a non-suspecting source for hacks. When a user utilizes them, the malware is dumped on their desktop and the attacker is notified.
  • Once they have control over a device — PC, smart TV or smartphone — the hacker can do whatever they want, from stealing information to installing ransomware. Read more (5/25/17)

YES YES YES! Here are my main squeezes: 

@college-help-and-hacks: One of the first blogs I followed when I started my own blog.

Sally Yates is a Patriot

I have a series of medical tests late this afternoon, so I won’t have a chance to post a recap of Sally Yates’ testimony. Her hearing is about to start now.

Three things:

1) NBC News broke the news this morning that three Obama officials have confirmed that, shortly after the election, President Obama warned Trump not to hire General Flynn, whom he had fired in 2014. And, of course, Trump had to fire Flynn three weeks after he hired him to be National Security Adviser because Flynn colluded with Russia–and Turkey–and lied to VP Pence about it.

2) Strongly urge you to read up on Sally Yates’ career if you haven’t already. She has a long, distinguished legal career prosecuting members of both parties. She’s highly esteemed by peers of all stripes. And Trump fired her in January from her job as Acting U.S. Attorney General because she refused to enforce his first travel ban Executive Order. Let’s note the 3rd Circuit separately ruled that Yates’ legal assessment was the correct one.

3) Yates is about to testify under oath now. In a stupid and venal attempt to deflect attention, this morning on Twitter, Trump both attacked Yates AND falsely blamed President Obama for hiring Flynn.

Let’s pay close attention. Yates has tremendous integrity and pertinent information. Today we learn what Yates knew about Flynn and Russia, what she relayed to Trump, and why she opted to get fired rather than enforce a travel ban she knew to be Unconstitutional.

Sally Yates is a patriot.
