Bucky Barnes fluff fic preview

A/n it’s going to be up in a couple of hours

Bucky desperately wanted to leave and was about to ask Steve if he could go back up to his room until he noticed you in the crowd. You were circulating the party with the pastries you baked and you offered them with a genuine smile on you face.

He was so taken aback by your beauty that he didn’t realize Steve was calling his name until he felt a tap on his shoulder “What?” Bucky looked over at Steve and Sam and noticed a smile on their face.

“Why don’t you go up and talk to her? I know she’s working but she’s allowed to talk to people” Steve asked before he took a sip of his drink.

Steve knew about Bucky’s crush on you and encouraged his best friend to pursue you. He knew you were a sweetheart and you would make Bucky happy but Bucky refused to take his advice and kept his distance from you. “I can’t. I’ve only spoken three words to her since I joined you guys and I don’t want to make a fool of myself.” Bucky chugged his drink before he went to the bar and stayed their for the remainder of the party.

Hi! I just wanted to say thank you for posting the convention spending tracker, I'll be tabling in a con for the first time so I think it will be very useful for me. Also I was wondering if you have any tips for me since it's the first time I'm doing something like this and honestly I'm very nervous, thank you and love your work by the way!

Hey! I’m glad you like the spending tracker, but check out the new link I just posted - someone took it and made it into a tracker that automatically calculates itself and I’m so happy! It’s way more useful and accurate now. 

Congrats on getting your first artist alley table! I remember how nervous I was at my first convention. Honestly, it was a horrible experience. I was 18 and had several people walk up to me, say my art was ugly, sheepishly apologize, and leave. I made way too many prints and sold less than 10 of them over 3 days. It was so awful I honestly don’t know why I even signed up for another table.

I don’t mean to make you more nervous, my point is just this - don’t let your first experience define what every convention will be like for you. Each convention is unique even from year to year. There’s a lot of varying factors that go into what makes a tabling experience good, and sometimes they can be out of your control. Each time will be wildly different from the last, and you will see improvement in all areas the more you table. Here’s a few more general tips:

  • Don’t take any negative things people say about you or your art to heart. Most convention attendees are really nice and there to have a good time, but you will meet some rude dudes, especially if you start tabling often. 
  • If someone is standing in front of your table, talking at you, hogging your attention away from customers and is clearly not there to buy anything, the fastest way to get rid of them is to ignore them. This person wants to talk because they’re alone and you can’t leave your spot. I know this sounds super rude, but this has happened to me and every artist I’ve met a dozen times, and I no longer have the patience to sit and entertain this person indefinitely.
  • Take breaks! Go buy some food, get some water, go to the bathroom! It helps to bring a cloth to cover the top of your table with, so you’re not worrying about things going missing while you’re up.
  • Don’t wait until the last minute to order your prints… but if you do, most hotels will allow packages shipped to them. Just call in advance to make sure, and keep in mind some of them charge a holding fee of about $20.

Wow this got longer than I intended. Good luck at your convention, and don’t worry too much! There’s tons of artist alley resources out there now, like @howtobeaconartist and animecons.org. Take a breather, do your prep in advance, and you’ll do great!

“Now is the time for you to take the center stage. The whole world is waiting for you. Don’t forget what it is you want. Now is the time to take off. Fulfill your dream. Only you can make it a reality. Live your life. Dance your dream. Sing, sing… Sing your own song. Do the fullest, play to the fullest, and discover. Find your path, and go above and beyond it! Now is your beginning. Live your own life. Now is the time to start. This is your time.” Otabek Altin

Saw a dad giving his daughter advice to go to a women’s college so she’d become a “proper feminine young lady” and the flashbacks I had made me cackle so hard I thought I broke a rib

as someone who went to women’s college for a bit, women’s college is where you go to became a radical feminist fighter who will literally never put up with patriarchal bullshit ✌️

Why men think women in mass will organize to just hold on to antiquated feminine standards mostly perpetuated by men will never cease to anger me. Hell, even organizations run by nuns have been cited as hotbeds of lesbian relationships and intense feminist thoughts

ORGANIZED WOMEN DO NOT GET TOGETHER TO TALK ABOUT WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF MEN. THEY ORGANIZE TOGETHER TO TALK ABOUT WAYS TO FIGHT THE PATRIARCHY

so please go my sisters, go to women’s college, learn how to destroy all men in your life with a better education than they could ever dream of

tips all students need

1. learning is better than knowing. you don’t need to be a genius to do well in school, only dedicated enough to actively pursue your education. 

2. straight A’s =/= intelligence. don’t let your grades define you; test grades can’t capture the passion in your eyes and the resilience in your bones.

3.  friendships change, but sometimes that's a good thing. some relationships are bested by time, and people grow apart. in the absence of others, you may find that you’ve been missing out on what’s been right in front of you the entire time. 

4. rest is important. your health is always more important than school. while stress is inevitable, never be afraid to take a day off, or talk to a trusted adult. Mental health is just as valid as physical health.

5. your life is just beginning. i know that failing test grade or the fact that your crush rejected you seems like the end of the world, but i promise you that it’s not the end. life is literally the longest thing any of us will experience, so fall in love with living. think of every opportunity as just another beginning.

joshua birthday countdown: d-1

joshua’s lines through the eras [ cr 1. 2. 3. ]

hey friends!! a lot of you ask me for tips on things all the time + this is just some really good advice i’ve learnt throughout my years of being a student shared with you:

revision

  • study frequently so when exams/tests come by you only need to revise your shorter notes [you will thank yourself later]
  • i know it’s tedious but try to always do your homework [it’ll help you in the long run]
  • do your readings before class, this will help you understand better!!
  • use time wisely, for example study on the bus on the way to school [i really like doing this]
  • teach yourself material by giving lessons to soft toys or maybe using actual tools found in your household [i like using this method particularly for biology especially with water]
  • if you have to read to revise, read aloud
  • record yourself to be able to listen later when on the bus or something [i like doing this with poetry]
  • make sure to always get enough sleep, it’s not worth it losing sleep over studying! [also i find it better to wake up a little early to revise than sleep late]
  • incense works wonders if you’re trying to calm yourself down whilst studying
  • keep a hot beverage around when you’re studying + reward yourself by drinking a little bit of it when you want to
  • get rid of distractions while you’re studying, put your phone on flight mode or leave it to charge somewhere
  • if music doesn’t hinder your attention span, then listen to it whilst studying/doing homework [i suggest classical music/coffee shop noises/rain sounds] ~ [my spotify playlist // classical favourites // get ur studying on // flourishment]
  • watch videos on a particular topic before you cover it in class
  • if your syllabuses are available online, download them + print them out
  • have an organised desk, it helps you feel less stressed
  • use the pomodoro technique to study
  • make sure you have good lighting
  • work out past exam papers if they’re available to you, these are really good practice for your exam!
  • talk to your teachers during their office hours if you need to, that’s what they’re there for
  • if you’re too afraid to do the latter, send them an email when you need them!
  • have different files for every subject to keep you organised
  • don’t neglect any subject- just give them the time they need + prioritise
  • use a planner/bullet journal to help you plan your week

school stuff

  • smile at people, you have no idea how much it could brighten their day [plus your smile is great!!!]
  • always keep a water bottle handy
  • make your school lunch in the evening so you can sleep a bit more in the morning + not spend your money on school lunches
  • always take your headphones + charger to school [if they’re allowed]
  • keep some emergency money or something in your pencil case, you never know when you might need them!
  • if you menstruate make sure to keep a bag with stuff for when you’re menstruating [if not for you, maybe your friends may need something too]
  • take naps on the bus if the journey is long [make sure you don’t sleep + end up on the other side of the city/country]
  • if you have free lessons, utilise them! do your work at school if it can be done there so you are able to study/relax at home!
  • always take a book with you to school just in case you ever get bored
  • go to a guidance counselour if you need one [they can help with practically anything you may need!] 
  • go to private tutoring lessons if you need them/can afford them

personal life

  • take pictures, lots of them!!! not just for instagram or something, they’re actually a really great memory
  • don’t forget to visit your relatives every now and then
  • watch the news/read articles to help you stay in touch with the real world
  • don’t worry so much about social media honestly from experience, it’s trivial anyway. indulge yourself in the real world + spend time with family and friends!!
  • don’t compare yourself to others, you’re not them + they are not you!
  • try to get some exercise done, even if it’s just using the stairs instead of a lift or dancing around in your room
  • always keep yourself hydrated
  • remember to take a day off once a week, it’ll help you avoid burnout
  • eat fruits/nuts as a snack!! 

+ my masterposts

these are all practically all the tips i can remember!! i hope they help a lot of you out <3 good luck with school
