hard makes it great

The Full Potential Challenge

Ever wonder what your life would be like if you lived up to your full potential? Would your body be healthier? Your skin clearer? Bank account bigger? I think about these things all the time, and, judging by a previous post, you guys do too. Let’s try it out! Obviously we aren’t going to come close to perfect with this – we’re all humans with good days and bad days and in-between days. But let’s try together to see what would happen if we pushed ourselves. I don’t ever want anyone to feel pressured to stick to this every day (I sure as hell won’t), but it’s worth a shot, right? Let’s get to it!

EVERY MORNING

  • Stretch. First thing. Really give your body enough time to wake up. Touch your toes. Roll out your shoulders. Do not hit snooze!
  • Do your full skincare routine. I have mine detailed here, but do whatever works for you and your complexion. Be gentle and consistent. 
  • Brush your teeth and floss. I used to be a big floss-skipper too, but you’d be amazed at how dig of a difference it makes. Rinse with a whitening mouthwash. I use one by Crest, and I notice a major difference in my teeth’s overall whiteness in just a few days.
  • Give yourself enough time to get ready. Whether you’re a wash-and-go kind of girl, or someone who spends an hour doing a full contouring routine before class (and either one is fine!), make sure you aren’t rushing. If you need to wake up a few minutes earlier than normal, so be it. Rushing sets an awful, stressed-out tone for the rest of the day. Allow yourself to be relaxed before taking on the day.
  • Eat something. I’m not going to say eat a big breakfast, because some people (myself included) just can’t eat in the morning. But you should eat, or at least bring a little something with you to work or school. If you can’t eat a full breakfast, grab a fruit! You won’t be as hungry come lunch time, making you less likely to gorge yourself.
  • Shower. You can do this at night, in the morning, whatever. Again, this is something you should allow some time for. I don’t wash my hair every day, but I do condition it every day (from the ears down). Scrub yourself with a delicious-smelling body wash. If you shave, make yourself as smooth as a dolphin, dude. If you don’t, then don’t and don’t ever ever ever let anyone make you feel bad or weird about it. When you get out of the shower, wrap yourself in a fluffy towel and totally slather your sexy self with lotion. Top to bottom. Do it as soon as you can post-shower so it can really sink in. 
  • Put leave-in condition throughout your damp hair and comb it through.
  • Put on an outfit that makes you feel good! So important!
  • Drink water. Drink water. Drink water. Drink water!!!!!
  • Take a look at your daily to-do list. Knock out the most pressing stuff first. Take pride when you cross things off your list.
  • Make your bed! Oh my god, make your bed. Do it. Do it. Do it. 

EVERY AFTERNOON 

  • Follow the “touch it once” approach. This is a truly life-changing thing. When a task is in front of you, no matter how big or small, just do it right then and there. How many times have you gotten a work email or homework assignment and thought, “Eh, I’ll do it later”? And then later never comes? Once something pops up, do it once. Squash it and be done. Cross things off your list and feel like a badass.
  • Try to go for a walk at lunch. Even one little lap around the block or campus will reenergize you like nobody’s business. 
  • Drink water. Drink water. Drink water. Drink water!!!!!
  • Be present. This is so hard for me too, but you have to make a major effort to be present in whatever you’re doing. Be engaged and plugged-in and just exist in the moment. Give 100 percent.
  • Be friendly to friends and strangers. A smile goes a long way.
  • Eat something. Eat what you packed for lunch (see below) and take a break from working while you do it. You need “you time”!

EVERY EVENING

  • Take your makeup off as soon as you’re in for the night. Wash your face with your full routine and let your skin have a break. 
  • Workout. You can also do this in the morning. Whatever works for you. Make a great playlist and go hard af. Get your cardio in. Get your strength training in. Earn every freaking sweat bead forming on your forehead. Earn your shower!
  • Knock out your homework. Life is infinitely better you don’t have anything hanging over your head. Half the time, the energy and emotion you spent dreading/putting off your work is ten times worse than the work itself.
  • Make a list of what needs to be done tomorrow. It’ll set you up for success the next day, and you won’t forget anything!
  • Drink water. Drink water. Drink water. Drink water!!!!!
  • Lay out your clothes for tomorrow. This will save you SO MUCH TIME in the morning omg I can’t even tell you how important this is.
  • Eat something great. And once you’ve decided to be done eating for the night, be done. Brush your teeth so you can’t eat again.
  • After brushing, do a whitening treatment. Whether it’s classic baking soda, a Crest white strip, or a laser. Do something. And floss! Retainers in too, ladies 0:)
  • Relax! Take a few hours to do what YOU want to do. Scroll through Tumblr, binge on some Netflix, FaceTime gossip with your friends, anything. Do whatever makes you happiest. 
  • Shut the electronics off an hour before you want to go to bed. Put your phone on sleep mode. If you stare at the screen, it will keep you awake and alert and you won’t be able to fall asleep. A good night’s sleep is crucial for weightless and general happiness lol
  • Do a quick sweep of your room and see if there’s anything you can put away real quick. A clean space is a happy space.
  • Crawl into your bed (aren’t you happy you took the time to make it?!) and read a book by lamplight for a while. When you start to feel sleepy, go to sleep. Don’t push it. You kicked ass today and you deserve rest. 

EVERY WEEKEND

  • Do something with your friends. It just has to be one thing. Even if you’re just hanging out at the coffee shop, spending time with your squad will make you a better, happier person.
  • Drink water. Drink water. Drink water. Drink water!!!!!
  • Do something just for you. Set your laptop up in the bathroom and watch a Netflix marathon while you take a bubble bath. Buy an old school bottle of Mr. Bubbles ($3 at Target!) and really just soak. Relax. Light a candle.
  • Do something creative. You can read a book, write, blog, draw, code, anything. It just has to be something that speaks to your passion.
  • Track your progress. Just do this once a week so it doesn’t become all-consuming. And remember that non-scale victories are just as important as shedding pounds.
  • Take the time to be grateful. Tell your friend how much you admire her taste in music. Mention to your mom how much you love her cooking and how happy you are that she takes care of you. Thank your teacher after an especially interesting lecture. When you do something awesome, take a moment to admire YOURSELF. Be grateful for even the little things.

Anything I missed? Reblog + add yours! Don’t forget to tag your progress!

friendly reminder that Ladybug loves Chat a lot and that they are best friends and while she does try to keep things between them more or less professional, she in no way does anything ever on purpose to harm or put Chat down

The Baudelaire’s refusal to be grateful for their unfortunate events seemed like such a good message for kids - so I made a thing.

the puppy bowl is the greatest invention of the 21st century. hair dryers included.
why you should [risk] seeing ‘it:’
  • a bunch of little kids cussing each other out!!!
  • some truly classic one-liners, t r u l y,
  • doesn’t shy away from stephen king’s brutal subject matter for a second
  • pennywise is so well-acted and so are all the kiddos
  • really great score
  • it’s hard to make seven main child actors all feel important and relevant, and they pulled it off
  • main characters include: a kid with a realistic stutter, a kid with anxiety, a young girl standing up to sexualization (and abuse), an overweight kid with a heart of gold, etc.
  • nice sprinkling of awwww moments
  • a bunch of children throwing rocks at each other to rock music
  • some very very clever framing that makes me want to go back and study the film closer
  • the spooks are wise
  • it made me yell
  • good balance of cgi and physical effects—especially in terms of vfx make-up
  • it portrays child abuse on the same level as the rest of their fears and that is important
  • they don’t try to water down anything “because they’re kids,” if that makes sense; but mature themes are handled very well
  • lovely coming-of-age vibes amidst the shapeshifting clown monster
  • they really pulled out all the spooks with this one folks
  • look getting the bejesus scared out of yourself with a full audience is a great experience, this one has a decent plot and top-tier spooks, you should really give it a chance

Shoutout to fic readers who patiently wait six months or more for a new chapter, and then when the author nervously updates, worried that no one will care after so long, leave the sweetest comments to let the author know how happy they are to get the new chapter…. no matter how long it took. 

Your patience and positive feedback are greatly appreciated, more than you’ll ever know.

Whatever you do don't imagine KO with a tummy ache and BB lying next to him and talking to KO's tum, jokingly saying that the scraplets that snuck in there better leave and stop pestering his boyfriend, KO playfully waps him on the shoulder and tells him to stop since it hurts to laugh

The Signs As Stereotypical Students

Aries: The Jock. The captain of the (insert sport) team, a bit hot-headed at times, but looked up to by many.

Taurus: The Chill One. Is acquaintances with basically the whole school, but has a small but close group of friends. Easy to approach and even easier to hang out with. Truly the middle ground between popular and unpopular.

Gemini: The Jokester. Mostly loved by all, those who don’t love them are party-poopers. Has the world’s best sense of humour.

Cancer: The Sensitive One. Was probably the crybaby on the playground. Now they have grown up to be stronger—at least on the outside. Loves to help people and has a soft heart. Also, they’re probably prettier than you.

Leo: The President. Somehow manages to hold positions of power in every club in the school. A role model to everyone striving to get somewhere.

Virgo: The Nerd. Always quiet in class, listening intently. Is most definitely smarter than you, and probably holds a deep, dark secret.

Libra: The Popular. Loved by all, those who don’t love them envy them. Their perfectly balanced lives and natural charm draw people in. 

Scorpio: The Bad Boy. Incredibly attractive, and can get any partner they want by just smiling in their direction. It’s hard to truly get to know them

Sagittarius: The Mysterious One. Always up to something, barely ever shows up to class. Instead, they go and have their own adventures outside the confines of school.

Capricorn: The Successor. Their whole life is set up for success. Probably has already the inherited a ton of money from their rich parents. Envied by almost all.

Aquarius: The Party Animal. Is always up to a good party. Always has something new to do. Makes a great friend, but a bit hard to control at times.

Pisces: The Artist. Always has their head in the clouds during class. Expresses everything through music or art, or anything but words. Always has good priorities.

Well, here we are again folks. Time for me to once again talk about the people I love to no end. I hope you’re ready, because this is a long one. Also, yes, I’m using the same graphic as last time. Leave me alone.

All I have to say to all you lovely people this time around is that I love you all very much and am very appreciative of this community existing, because I’ve made some very amazing friends here and increased my love of hockey infinitely because of you wonderful people. I feel like I’ve grown and changed a lot in my own personal life due to being on hockey tumblr and the people that I’ve met here and interacted with, and it’s only been positive growth and change. I think that people talk a lot of shit about internet communities and how toxic they can be, and while sometimes that may be true, you folks always shock and surprise me with how wonderful, lovely and supportive you can all be. I appreciate it endlessly, and I hope it never changes. So thanks for 1,000 followers (that’s insane) and let’s get started!
