help someone be happy

Not to get super emotional, but I’m on this hiring committee at work. Meaning I get to help hire someone. The candidate asked me today if I was happy here. I got to look at her and honestly say that I get to wake up every morning and go to work with my best friends and my family of choice. 

Then it were as if someone started chopping onions in the room. 

Idk I went to Houston thinking the temp gig as gonna re-fire my passion and I’d love academic medicine. Well, turns out academic medicine is awful & what I’m doing already is pretty great. REALLY ACTUALLY GREAT.

Grif is struggling but so is Locus.

Just help him out, dude.

@telekinetic-pony had this wonderful idea and I couldn’t help but to draw it.

Happy simming for Autism Acceptance Month <3 

I think baby boomers’ tendency to get very mad at slow service goes hand in hand with their dislike of smart phones. Every situation I’ve been in where service is slow? I just whip out my phone and browse apps for the extra 30 seconds. It’s not a big deal. Meanwhile Landline Howard behind me in line who’s never held a smartphone in his life is bored with nothing to occupy his time so he yells at minimum wage workers instead.

Got into Overwatch. Fell in love with a pairing. Wanted to defend the problematic assassin. Opted to let the cowboy defend him for me. Ninja brother is just being supportive. 

I’m about to give you some advice that I don’t usually follow myself, but that I know works.

Confused? Yeah, me too.

Motivation is often a story killer. You’re tired from a long day at school or work or looking after kids. The last thing you want to do is glue your face to a computer screen and do even more work, right? That scene you were thinking about all day can wait, you’ll get to it another time when you’re rested and bothered.

But you (I,) shouldn’t think like that. This is what I tend to do If I want to write but aren’t bothered to.

Open your word document, and just read the last few sentences you wrote to get your story fresh in your mind.

Then do something else. Make some food, do some cleaning. Something mindless, that doesn’t require a lot of attention. Something to move yourself away from the screen- and no, social media doesn’t count. You don’t want to get sucked in.

(I find that I’ll be thinking about my story as I do these tasks, which makes my motivation slowly return.)

After a while, go back to your document and write a few lines. I usually end up writing a hundred words or so, which isn’t great but still progress.

Of course this might not work for everyone- there are people out there who write regardless of motivation or inspiration and I hope to get to that level some day.

But for now, I hope this can help someone with motivation , even if it’s just for a moment.


Happy writing.

Here’s something I’ve been working on to put all of my studying ideas in one place. These are probably going to be better for the sciences because those are the subjects I study, but you can apply them to anything really. At first I was going to make a bujo page out of it, but I thought it might help someone else as well. Happy studying! 

(the backstory to this is that I was really confused over the Easter holidays because I didn’t know how to revise bio and chem after doing my notes agessss ago, so this is what I came up with) 

also s/o to powerpoint for being the only software I can use

Guys, I don’t know why, but I had the sudden image of the pack dancing to Girls Just Want To Have Fun in my head and I am grinning ear to ear. 

Erica and Stiles probably sharing an empty bottle as a microphone and being Super Extra about it, dancing on a table and doing everything they can to embarrass Boyd and Derek, who are trying not to laugh - like good boyfriends - from their place on the sofa. (Of course, they don’t get to keep out of the on-goings for long; Boyd is too smitten to refuse Erica when she gives him that come hither look, and Derek has no choice when Stiles wraps his arms around him and pulls him in, grinning happily.) 

Scott, Allison and Isaac jumping around in their little, love struck trio, belting their hearts out. Allison waving an arrow around which has been dipped in neon paint, her arms around both her boys, singing wildly off key. Scott and Isaac don’t look any less in awe of her than if she was Cyndi Lauper herself.   

Kira, Malia and Liam dancing awkwardly in the middle of the room, loving life, party steamers in their hair, trying to start a conga line and failing miserably. Kira tripping several times and Malia looking on, hopelessly endeared. Dancing with Kira is her favourite. 

Lydia as honorary Cyndi Lauper, wearing the brightest lipstick, Jackson and Danny right by her side; all three of them are the only ones who can carry a tune and Jackson being smug as fuck about it. Lydia sharing a look with Allison from across the room and tossing her hair dramatically, making Allison laugh; they sing the chorus loudly at each other. 

The Sheriff and Melissa dancing in the kitchen, sharing new and exciting looks. John giving her a flower and both of them looking at their sons, shaking their heads and smiling.

Everyone is happy. There is nothing bad around the corner. And they all live happily ever after in a bubble of 80s pop.
