had too much free time today

2

just had my first frappuccino after my fever last weekend!!! 

story time: today is my dad’s birthday and he has a free beverage reward that expires today but he isn’t around to claim it and he isn’t much of a starbucks enthusiast, so i decided to get it! i used the mobile app for the first time today and there were so many options!! i played it safe and didn’t do too much because some might be coffee shots, but i don’t know lol. so i just went for what i had above thinking i’d be set. when my drink arrived, i took a couple sips and it tasted like coffee? i went up to the barista and asked her, “um, why does my drink taste like coffee?” and she showed my order back to me and showed me the “6 shots and 2 affogatto style shots” which turned out to be espresso shots and i don’t even like coffee!!!! so i accidentally got 8 shots of espresso! 💀😂  i thought that they were pumps of chocolate since that’s what i usually like. so she had to make my drink again, but thankfully, she didn’t mind doing it over even though it was completely my bad. and then i’m going to cheesecake factory with the fam tonight!! great day so far 😀

I had SO MUCH FUN writing this. I may or may not have done the work I was supposed to do today but I regret nothing. Sorry if it sucks. Thank you to the Anon who requested, and feel free to shoot me some requests! Hope you like it!


I love my best friend, I really do, but I am feeling increasingly less affectionate towards him as today progresses. I get that he’s Luke Hemmings, ooh aah, but I don’t think requesting one day of his time is too much. We were supposed to meet up at 11, and its currently 2 pm and there’s no sign of Luke. Now I’m little mad, because I remember him mentioning that we were supposed to head to the venue around 3, which means he has officially blown off our entire day together. I grab a cab and head for the venue, because I’ll honestly take whatever time I can get with him. I walk up to the ticket counter and flash my backstage pass. I make my way to the backstage and pull on the handle…but its locked? I try it again, but to no avail. I’m officially mad. First he blows me off, and then he clearly forgets to tell the guards that I’m coming. Great. I sit on the edge of the sidewalk outside the door, even though its cold, wet, and windy as hell. I’m so angry that my entire face is hot. After an hour of freezing my ass off outside, I’m about to leave, but I hear a familiar voice call my name. “Y/N? Y/N is that you?” I look up to see Luke and Calum walking towards me, and I feel my anger build all over again. Luke goes in for a hug but I duck under his outstretched arm and go for Calum instead. I hug Calum tightly, burying my face into his chest and squeezing my eyes shut. I feel him hug me back after a second, and his body vibrates with an awkward chuckle. “Uh, okay. Hey there Y/N.” He says. “Hi Calum,” I reply softly, my voice muffled by his jacket. I stand like that for way too long, and I don’t bother to move until I hear Luke clear his throat loudly. “When you’re done smothering Calum, we can go in.” I raise my head and give Luke a dirty look before turning back to Calum. “Yeah, it’s cold. Let’s go.” I grab Calum’s hand and pull him towards the door, snatching the keys from Luke on my way. “Oh. Oh okay.” Calum says softly, allowing me to pull him along. I grip Calum tightly as we walk down the long hallway, asking him questions to keep him talking and keep Luke quiet. I glance back, and Luke looks angrier than I’ve ever seen him before. I hear Michael and Ashton’s voices coming from an open door, but I feel a hand grab me before I can follow Calum into the room. I turn and face Luke, and his blue eyes are full of fire. “What the fuck was that?” Luke growls. “Since when are you so excited to see Calum?” I glare at him, not saying a word. “Really? Not going to say anything, huh?” he prompts, but I still stay quiet. Luke scoffs and paces back and forth, running his hand through his hair. “You know what? I’m kind of offended, Y/N. I haven’t seen you in months and your way of greeting me was clinging to my best mate like a magnet. It was like I didn’t even exist. I had no idea that you liked Calum that much. Honestly I thought you’d be a little bit excited to see me.” He says angrily. My nostrils flare and I feel my ears heat up from my built-up anger. “You’re mad? Seriously? We were supposed to meet up today at fucking 11 am and you forgot!” I yell back. “Not only did you forget, but you didn’t bother to text me back or return my calls! What, is it so hard to send a fucking text message Luke? Really??” I’m so angry that my hands are shaking. “And to top it all off, I had sit outside freezing my ass off because you forgot to tell the guards I was coming! So please tell me again how angry you are that I was more excited to see Calum than I was to see you.” Luke’s eyes are wide now, and I’m guessing he only just realized that we had made plans. “Yeah, yup. We had plans buddy!” I scoff and laugh humorlessly. I wait for him to say something, but he’s silent, simply staring at his feet. “Do you like him?” he asks softly. I think I must’ve misheard him. “What?” I ask. “Do you like Calum?” he asks again. “Oh my god Luke! This isn’t even about Calum! This is about you and your obvious lack of consideration! Did it even occur to you as to why I’m so mad about this? I don’t remember making plans to spend my day with Calum today, I made the plans with you goddammit! I c-“ Luke grabs my face and smashes his lips onto mine, shutting me up. “I’m sorry.” He whispers. I swallow hard and take a deep breath. He surprised me, and I wasn’t sure how to react. “I’ll make it up to you, I promise.” He says, kissing my cheek and grinning widely. I grin back, and suddenly realize how beautiful his smile is. "Yeah? Well you’ve got a lot of making up to do, Hemmings.”

This week has been another busy week, most of my free time was filled with auditions or practice ISAs. I’ve had so much homework too, 10 lengthy pieces in total! Today I need to complete my maths, English, French and music theory homework. Then I need to do some grade 5 music theory revision, I didn’t have time this week to do any.. Hopefully I’ll have time to go out for a run later because I’m missing out on my running. The drink featuring in this photo is something I’m obsessed with atm, cranberry juice and lemonade, there hasn’t been lemonade in the house for soooooo long! What’s your favourite homework/revision drink?x

Arab slave trade (Zanzibar slave trade) and Congo-Arab war

[This post will be brief and written in a way that is accessible to all. Also, non-Congolese people keep your opinions to yourself, don’t make blank statements and dont no share your thoughts on this post, I don’t care for them. If you comment you will be blocked] This post will not go into too much detail, I won’t talk about specific ethnic groups or places in Eastern Congo (that will be done on separate posts)

The Arabs and Waswahili (Swahili people; who are also referred to as Baswahili in D.R. Congo today) of Zanzibar and other Swahili City States had been trading with states/kingdoms like the Luba kingdom of the Congo region  before the arrival of the Belgians. During the time of the Congo Free State, whilst the Belgians controlled most of the Congo the Arabs and Waswahili of Zanzibar had Eastern Congo. Tippu Tip whose real name was Hamed ben Mohammed al-Murjebi, was one of the most notorious, famous and powerful slavers in Eastern Congo. Reybrouck writes “At first he had acquired his luxury good, slaves and ivory in a friendly fashion. Yet, from 1870 on, all that changed. As more and more tons of ivory began flowing eastward, traders like Tippu Tip grew in power and wealth. In the final account, the sacking and pillaging of entire villages proved more cost effective than battering for a few tusks and adolescents. Why spend days chattering with local village chieftain, refusing lukewarm palm wine when your religion forbade you drinking anyway, when you could just as easily torch his village. The name Tippu Tip sent shivers down the spines of those inhabiting an area half the size of Europe.” And Zanzibari control of Eastern Congo continued until their relationship with the Belgians turned sour which then turned into a war (proxy war). 

[An account of the slave trade:

We pass a woman tied by the neck to a tree and dead, the people of the country explained that she has been unable to keep up with the other slaves in the gang, and her master had determined that she should not become the property of anyone else if she recovered after resting for a time. I may mention here that we saw others tied up in a similar manner, and one lying in the path shot or stabbed, she was in a pool of blood. The explanation we got invariably was that the Arab who owned these victims was enraged at losing his money by the slaves becoming unable to walk, and vented his anger by murdering them]

The outbreak of the war was blamed on the Arabs and Waswahili. The Zanzibaris had signed a treaty on February 1887 promising to end the slave trade in Eastern Congo but failed to do so, then the Belgians implemented plans to stop them. This was not done because they cared about the Congolese people, it was done because the slave trade and Zanzibar undermined the Belgians authority. It was the fight for economic and political power in the Congo which the Belgians presented as a Christian anti-slavery crusade. The war broke out it 1892 and ended in 1894 and tens of thousands people died. It was a proxy war because most of the fighting was  done by Congolese people, who aligned themselves with either side.



Baswahili/Swahili identity in D.R. Congo 

After the war had ended, the majority of the Arabs and Waswahili returned back to Zanzibar a lot of them remained and lived in in Eastern Congo. Swahili-Arab culture has had major cultural influences on Eastern Congo, along with the Waswahili descendants of the Free State living in Congo, mainly Congolese people in Eastern/Central Congo identify as Swahili/Baswahili and they are different from ethnic Swahili people living in the country. Ethnic groups such as Lega, Lokele, Baluba (mostly of Katanga but also some from Kasai), Bembe, Kusu etc etc have all been influenced by Arab-Swahili culture. Especially ethnic groups from the Maniema province and other Arabised areas. 

It should also be noted that the majority of the enslaved Eastern Congolese who were sold at the Zanzibar slave markets were taken to Egypt, Persia, India, Pakistan and Arab nations

For makeup class we had to make a picture morgue and they were due today but I missed my last class so I didn’t know so I got stuck doing mine as late night homework. 

Halfway through (when I was almost dead of boredom) I decided to have a little fun with mine. 

What started off as subtly slipping in Gavin here and there…

…slowly got less subtle and was more than just Gavin…

…which turned into blatantly including Roosterteeth and various other YouTubers.

And eventually I ended up with four slides having only them. 

Maybe my professor won’t notice. 

anonymous asked:

//Usually I just kind of lurk around but I don't think Jon's getting any asks :)// Hey Jon! What do you do in your free time?

Jon: Me? Well, hold on…

Jon: I draw sometimes! Pretty good, huh?
Jon: I take commissions, too, by the way.

Jon: Oh! And I play a lot of video games!

Jon: Here are some of my shelves… I have more!


Jon: But, well, other than that and visiting the pet shop and flower shop sometimes? I don’t really do much of anything else..

“Maybe if I get a free drink I can consider talking to you.” [ im cryin,,,the only time lukas would speak to another person tbh ]

Really? Twice now people had demanded free drinks just so he could have a conversation. What was with the youth of today?

Roderich quickly shook that much too old thought from his head and sighed. “I suppose I can get you a drink, if that is what you wish.” Oh well. It wasn’t like he didn’t have money to spare.

We did not spend much time looking for music today, Nagisa was too interested in making me try on different glasses (the image shown above was his favourite pair other than my usual ones). The day was not bad though, not at all! I enjoyed myself and was glad to spend more time with him outside of our apartment. We had dinner in the city too, which I paid for since I did invite him out, and spent an hour afterwards walking along the riverside together.

On the train back, he slept against me and used my cardigan as a blanket. I assumed it must be all those late nights catching up on him so I did not try to wake him up.

It is a shame I did not get to ask him today, but I did not want to spoil our outing with petty and intrusive questions. Perhaps tomorrow I shall try again.

THE AMERICAN SCHOOL SYSTEM IS
H O R R I B L E
I AM IN EIGHTH GRADE, NOT EVEN IN HIGH SCHOOL YET AND I JUST SPENT ALL WEEKEND DOING HOMEWORK. DO THE SCHOOLS REALIZE HOW MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY UNHEALTHY THIS IS FOR PEOPLE? I FORGOT TO EAT UNTIL SIX PM YESTERDAY BECAUSE I WAS TO FOCUSED ON WANTING TO FINISH MY HOMEWORK BEFORE TODAY BECAUSE TODAY WAS MY ELEVEN YEAR OLD SISTER’S BIRTHDAY PARTY AND I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO GO. BUT GUESS WHAT? EVEN THOUGH I SPENT ALL OF MY TIME (just a couple breaks here and there) SINCE I GOT HOME FROM SCHOOL ON FRIDAY DOING HOMEWORK, I WAS NOT ABLE TO GO TO MY LITTLE SISTER’S PARTY EARLIER TODAY AS I HAD TOO MUCH HOMEWORK. AND THIS ISN’T ONLY ME, I BET SCHOOL RUINS MILLIONS OF OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES TOO. WHO EVEN INVENTED THE CONCEPT OF HOMEWORK?? WE ALREADY HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL FOR THE MAJORITY OF OUR DAY SO THESE IDIOTS DECIDE TO SUCK UP EVEN MORE OF OUR FREE TIME BY PILING UP HOURS MORE OF WORK ONTO US. I FEEL LIKE THERE NEEDS TO BE A LAW THAT MAKES GIVING STUDENTS OVER A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF HOMEWORK AT ONCE ILLEGAL. THAT’S ALL I’M GOING TO SAY FOR NOW AS I WANT TO GO DO SOMETHING ELSE WITH MY FIVE HOURS OF FREEDOM BEFORE I HAVE TO GO BACK TO EVERYONE’S FAVORITE HELL HOLE TOMORROW SEE YALL LATER.

A small vacation for two

It had been a few days since an accident had occurred at the lab. Both Jack and Frank had a lot of trouble getting over it and it had been decided that they would go somewhere where they could get proper help in order to get over what had happened. Benjamin missed the two of them, after all now he was all alone. Today he had decided that, since he had money and way too much free time on his hands, he would ask Silphey if she wanted to come with him and go on a small vacation together. He rang her doorbell and waited nervously, he was holding a small bouquet of roses, a little gift in order to be polite.
