hopefully i can stick this one out

Self Care

It’s Mental Health Month. May 1st. The beginning of it. I just want to post some tips on what I find useful when I feel anxious, depressed or lonely. Some tips on how to care for yourself mixed in here too. I know what it’s like to feel like nothing is going to work out and you feel like there is no point anymore. I still get sad from time to time but here is what I try to do to lower those horrible feelings. 

  1. Music 
    When I feel down I put on my chill playlist and listen to the songs. Not just recognize that the song is playing. I listen to every word, every beat, every instrument that makes a sound. I listen so hard that I forget everything else around me and forget everything that is going on in my head for a while. This actually really helps and especially if it’s a slow song, something that matches my mood. 
  2. Reading 
    Reading is one of my favourite things to do. I’m in love with words. And getting deep into one of my favourite books helps me forget for a while. Grab something to drink and maybe a snack, find a quiet and comfy place to relax and let yourself fall into a book. 
  3. Eat 
    When I feel depressed my appetite can go away pretty quickly. But if you don’t eat, you’ll feel even more tired and low. And that’s not good. So eat. Not junk food. Maybe a treat every now and again but make sure to eat healthy too. Fruit or vegetables. Maybe make some type of sandwhich or maybe eat a bowl of porridge. Whatever you want to make. But remember, not always junk food. And drink lot’s and lot’s of water. 
  4. Shower or bath 
    If you feel all ugh, and ew take a long warm shower or a bath full of bubbles. Taking a shower or bath might help you feel more relaxed and feel more taken care of. And keeping yourself fresh and clean will help help boost your system. 
  5. Fresh air 
    When I’m down, I get lazy. So the whole ‘take a long walk’ thing doesn’t go with me. What I like to do instead is open a window and stand there or take a chair and sit near there. I’m getting fresh air into my lungs which is good and I don’t need to get up and go outside to do it. Now getting exercise is a good thing to do too because it’ll boost your system also. But when you really can’t get up and walk far, just go to a window and read or listen to music.
  6. Cry 
    Yes crying is on this list. When you really need to let those tears out, just do it. If you’re in a place you feel comfortable enough to do it. Let it all out, for however long you need to. Crying doesn’t make you weak or a loser or whatever you think it makes you. It helps you. Instead of holding all those feelings in, you can let them out by crying. So just do it because a cry every now and again, will make you feel a little better. Hopefully. 
  7. Decorate and change it up
    This may be an odd one but it helps me. When I’m sad I’ll look up some quotes that I really like, write them on some paper and decorate the paper and stick it on my wall. Or sometimes I sift things around. If I think something in my room would look better in a different position then I’ll move it. I’ll maybe take some things down and hang something new up instead. Tidy my room too if it needs it. This helps because I’m focusing on other things. Where will this go? Does this look good on this wall? Things like that. Try it and see. 
  8.  Breathe 
    When I feel like I can’t breathe, I remember that I just need to take a minute. Look at my surroundings. What’s the colour of the walls? Breathe. What’s in the room? Breathe. What’s the weather like outside? Breathe. What’s my favourite food? Breathe. Do I have any plans this week? Breathe. Ask yourself some questions. Answer them and breathe. Breathe, breathe and breathe. Don’t let you make yourself small. Think bigger than what that stupid annoying voice in your head is telling you. Breathe. Because you’re worth it.

I hope these tips helped. I really do. And please, please REMEMBER… you are beautiful. You are so amazing and this world needs you in it. Maybe you feel like no one cares. But I guarantee you there is somebody out there who thinks the world of you. You are somebody’s moon. You’re that person who lights up the darkness for them. Don’t let your light go out. Stay strong and remember to love yourself and take care of yourself. You guys are more than welcome to ask me something if you need any advice or have any questions. The door is open and you are welcome. 

Post-Kerberos! Matt HC

★ When the rebellion group helped him escape, he just ended up sticking with them and eventually became one of the best fighters there???

★ He doesn’t have any idea where his dad is, but scavenges through old Galran tech to hopefully find out.

★ The group is pretty much amazed by humans and low-key terrified of them bc of Matt 

★ He dislocated his shoulder once and the group was like, “it’s horrible to see another one go,,,,” and Matt was just like “???? i can put it back in place????” 

  • Matt: Guys,,,,stop crying,,,,this can be fixed,,,,,
  • Rebellion leader: i saw a dear friend die bc of that, there is no survival
  • Matt: *silently puts in back in place*

★ He has a scar over his right eye bc of the Galra

★ The Galra also found out he needed glasses and basically went, “well we can’t have The Champions friend like this!” and injected some weird shit into his eyes. Matt no longer needs glasses, but his eyes change colors depending on his mood and who he’s talking too

★ Matt, talking to keith as his eyes turn red: And so– why the fuck are you pulling out your sword?

Keith, seeing Matt’s eyes turning yellow as he talks to Hunk: “Uhm guys? Are we sure that Matt isn’t Galra?”

  • “I am right here”

★ When he first heard of Voltron his main thought was, “Well that sounds lit” but when he hears that ‘The Champion’ aka Shiro is their leader, he immediately turns into that Mr.Krabs meme

★ Somehow some people find a picture of the paladins and everybody is just “???? the tiny one resembles matt”

★ Matt automatically realizes it’s Katie and that the red paladin is Keith and just,,,screams for roughly 5 hrs

★ Why is everyone he knows up in space? He has no fucking clue but w/e

★ Makes it a personal mission to track down Voltron for himself and the rebellion

★ They end up showing up eventually to make allies

★ The Paladins talk to some civilians first, so Allura and Coran meet up with the Rebellion leader

  • “Number 5?! How’d you get here so quickly??” “Funny story actually,,,”
  • The real Pidge shows up like 0.5 seconds later
  • Pidge//Katie, tearfully: “MATT”
  • Matt, nearly sobbing: Oh shit waddup

★ Keith screams at him for a solid 10 minutes before tearing up

  • “It’s okay. I know you’re gay and texan already, Keith”
  • “I fucking hate you”

★ There’s a tie between whether Pidge or Shiro cried more

★ Allura: I’m princess Allura and you are?
single and willing–i meAN MATT

 ★ **Takes in Katie’s appearance** “Well, one of us is going to have to change”

★ **Inspecting Shiro’s arm** “Yo, your weapon is just a bitch slap”

★ “,,,,,you guys do realize Allura just picked your lions off of your clothes right???” “No she–holy shit”


  • He essentially spends his time pointing out problems with basically everything tbh

★ “Why does Voltron represent the olympic rings??”

★ He realizes Keith has a crush on Lance in like a couple of days

  • “Listen here, you piece of shit”

★ Slowly comes to the realization that he likes both Shiro and Allura

  • “Coran have you ever heard of a pickle?”

★ He helps Coran around the castle and stuff

  • “And this is the Teludav” “Y’all have fucking teletubbies here?”

★ Him and Hunk team up to annoy Shiro and Lance with puns

  • “I’m just over the moon with excitement”
  • “Aren’t you glad i’m not lion in the cold depths of space??”

★ Him and Slav get along pretty well

  • Shiro hates it

★ “In this timeline, there is a 42% chance of you getting together with the two of them.” “Thanks buddy”

★ “Why did you choose five kids to defend the universe there’s so many ways this could go wrong”

★ Him and Hunk set up the lions to play “What’s new pussycat?” 7 times with one “It’s not unusual” before resuming ‘What’s new pussycat?’

  • “For years, scientist have wondered if you can make 3 teens, 1 adult, and 3 aliens weep tears of joy by playing Tom Jones’ “It’s not unusual”.”

★ Lance is amazed by how smooth his skin is

  • Like, you’ve been in space for 2 years???? And majority of that was with the Galra??? Tell me your secret

★ Everyone figures out Matt’s crush on both Allura and Shiro and try to get them together

  • One plan consisted of a rock, 15 cups of nunvil, and a very upset bounty group.

★ Matt actually likes nunvil

★ The Lions all take a liking to him and everyone would be salty, but he looks adorable when he talks to them so they deal with it

★ Pidge voice: I’ve banned Hunk because he kept messing with my shit but now—

★ He appreciates the fact that Hunk points out all the weird shit that’s going on while everyone else just accepts it

★ “Do you think i could install the internet to my mind?”
★ **sees all the upgrades Pidge added to Green** “yO—YO!”

★ Anytime Shiro or Allura do anything remotely romantic to him, ‘What the heck i gotta do’ starts blasting from the Green Lion

★  Allura called his ears cute once, and nobody saw him for 6 hrs until Lance found him frantically grabbing Altean romance novels while whispering, “what does it mean?!”

★ They go to a planet where it’s considered normal to have more than one partner

  • Coran convinces the newly dubbed “Poly triangle” to pretend they’re actually dating for reasons unknown
  • They pull it off so well that the Aliens eventually ask when they’re gonna get married
  • Everyone had vastly different reactions

★ “You guys are fighting Zarkon right? Why don’t you just turn him Zarkoff?”

★ Hunk voice: Um, guys, what are those things?
    Obviously annoyed Matt voice: Aliens. 
    Different ranges of offended Allura, Coran and Keith voices: Excuse me?

★ “I’m fucking tired. beam me up, Scotty”

★ Keith, kneeling down on one knee: “Matt, Allura, will you do me the honor of marrying my stupid brother?”

★ “Voltron? More like Dabtron.”

  • “How do I return a brother?”


★ Tried to convince Shiro to let him Pidge and Hunk install a laser gun sound effect or the lightsaber noise to his arm

★ Once, he finally found the courage to tell Shiro and Allura that he liked them but they mistook it as him saying he enjoyed their company or smth along those lines

  • He tried to throw himself out the airlock afterwards

★ Lotor eventually shows up and everyone is tense bc he’s shown interest in the Blue Lion

★ Lotor sees Matt, and just pushes Lance out of the way: Hello there ;)

  • Everyone pretends not to notice Shiro’s eye twitch and Allura breaking the weapon she was holding
  • Lance was offended at first but seeing their reactions made it worth it

★ Matt is oblvious to Lotor’s attempts though

  • Everytime he gets close, Matt just assumes it’s some weird galra thing

★ “Raindrops on roses, Allura’s white hair, Shiro’s back muscles and Allura’s eyes. These two could probably kick his ass and they’re a few of Matt’s favorite things”

★ Obviously exasperated Pidge voice: You guys just need to bone
    Stern Matt voice: What did you say?
    Pleading Hunk voice: Please don’t say it again
    Not Caring Pidge voice: I said you guys need to bone
    Shocked, Furious Matt voice: B O N E!?

★ They visit a planet with very tall aliens and of course shenanigans ensure

★ Keith voice: Y’know Allura, Shiro, you should probably hold Matt’s hand, so he can’t get lost everyone around here is pretty tall

  • **Disappointed, obviously knows what you’re doing Shiro Glare**
  • Completely oblivious, already grabbing Matt’s hand Allura voice: Of course! We wouldn’t want that!”
  • **Undignified, silent squeal from Matt**

★ Hunk voice: The stars sure are beautiful tonight
    Lance voice: Y’know what else is beautiful?
    Pidge and Keith voices: A loving relationship between Matt, Shiro and Allura

★ Eventually, the time comes where there’s a serious fight that both Shiro and Allura have to go through alone, and Matt freaks tf out and terribly confesses to the both of them:

  • “Okay, listen tf up. I can’t do that dramatic thing where I pull you down and kiss you and say, ‘Come back to me’ since there’s two of you. But I will say that I love you both, and if you dont come back i’m taking out the entire Galran Empire myself”

★ Allura and Shiro are both shocked but Matt is already fast walking away so they can’t say anything

  • They come back and make a beeline for him
  • Allura makes it to him first

★ Keith cries, Pidge and Hunk pull out a confetti cannon they made for this occasion, Lance falls to his knees in victory, Coran pulls out a cake. Everything is good in the Universe.

Um. I started a new AU. I couldn’t concentrate on any other project until I got this one out. >.>;;;;; So uh yeah this was this entire week. It’s a pretty darn big post. This AU will hopefully contain itself to the one post maybe one more

Going up tomorrow night! As usual, I’ll try to get it up 8PM EST. Lemme try to stick to my own self-imposed deadline and not be 3 hours late this time! ;A;

(Genuinely curious to see if anyone can guess an AU and/or crossover of what since I’ve cropped + censored out all costume details…I’m pretty sure I haven’t let anything slip publicly…? reply to this post to let me know what you think ;D)

ISTJ Fictional Tropes

Like anything in fiction there are always tropes. This include characters based on their MBTI. Now not all characters that are ISTJ fit into these exact tropes and many fit into multiple as you will note in the examples. The following are major tropes these ISTJ characters have a pattern of falling into and I think they help define their type as a whole in the big picture. Hopefully, this can be almost a quick cheat sheet at times when typing characters. 

Traditional Leader

These characters are what we think of as your typical leader. They are the ones you trust because they stick to their center, what they feel is right. They’re usually fiercely loyal. These leaders are service oriented. They don’t see themselves as in control, but as serving a role, one that would exist without them. One they choose out of some sense of responsibility or duty to uphold. 

Examples: Commander Lexa (The 100), Captain Ray Holt (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Queen Elizabeth II (The Crown), Lord Eddard Stark (Game of Thrones), Stannis Baratheon (Game of Thrones), George Washington (Hamilton: An American Musical), Thorin (The Hobbit), Fergus (Pixar’s Brave), Theodon (The Lord of the Rings), Powhatan (Disney’s Pocahontas), Queen Catherine of Aragon (The Tudors), Kercheck (Disney’s Tarzan), King George (Once Upon a Time), Elsa (Disney’s Frozen and Once Upon a Time), and Rick Grimes (The Walking Dead).


Most of these character actually are cops, detectives, inspectors, but that is not exactly what this means. This trope for the ISTJ involves them being excited by their inferior Ne. They love to solve things methodically with Si-Te, but get excited by solving puzzles and investigating using their Ne. These types are interested in the truth and their duty to reveal the truth. They will often be willing to break the law/rules in order to uncover the truth. Their loyalty is to what their role upholds, not to people please. The ISTJ is self sacrificing and is okay being painted negatively if the result leads to the truth and justice. 

Examples: Quentin Lance (Arrow), Mako (Avatar: Legend of Korra), Captain Ray Hold (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle (DC Comics), Joe Swanson (Family Guy), Tina Goldstein (Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them), Chloe Decker (Lucifer), Inspector Chester Campbell (Peaky Blinders), James Gordon (Gotham and DC Comics), Bonnie Winterbottom (How To Get Away With Murder), Sara Lance (Arrow and Legend of Tomorrow), Javert (Les Miserables), Shikamaru Naru (Naruto Shippuden), Bartholomew Rusk (Penny Dreadful), Anderson (BBC’s Sherlock), Jim Hopper (Stranger Things), Sam Winchester (Supernatural), Sheriff Stalinski (Teen Wolf), Nobuchika Ginoza (Psycho-Pass), and Rick Grimes (The Walking Dead).

Dutiful Soldier

ISTJ characters that fit this trope are often soldiers, however, it isn’t a requirement to be part of this trope. These ISTJs are dedicated to a cause and remain personally connected and loyal to it. They are highly dependable in performing their duty, whatever that role may be. Their tertiary Fi, often influences them morally to be connected to a cause. They work hard and always follow through on a task. This isn’t about following rules created by a system blindly. These character follow a code and if that means breaking the rules to uphold a personal code, they will do it. 

Examples: Allison Argent (Teen Wolf), Takashi Morinozuka (Ouran High School Host Club), Mulan (Once Upon a Time), Norrington (Pirates of the Caribbean), Fujitora (One Piece), Bartholomew Rusk (Penny Dreadful), Yamato (Naruto Shippuden), Mako Mori (Pacific Rim), Athos (BBC’s The Musketeers), Ardeth Bay (The Mummy Film Series), Li Shang (Disney’s Mulan), Mike Wazowski (Monsters, Inc.), Mameha (Memoirs of a Geisha), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Marvel Cinematic Universe), Claire Temple (Netflix’s The Defenders Universe), Sebastian (Disney’s The Little Mermaid), Zazu (Disney’s The Lion King), Cogsworth (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast), Harry/Galahad (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Astrid (How To Train Your Dragon), Dr. Eric Foreman (House, MD), Legolas (The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings), Maximus (Gladiator), Brienne of Tarth (Game of Thrones), Riza Hawkeye (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood), Zoe Washburne (Firefly), Danny Pink (Doctor Who), Katana/Tatsu Toro (DC Comics), Starfire (DC Comics), Melinda May (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Jack Thompson (Agent Carter), Indra (The 100), Maggie Greene (The Walking Dead), and Alex Danvers (Supergirl).

The Specialist

This ISTJ is a master of something. They are so focused and will know every fact about their specialization. Whatever they love is part of their identity, it is what defines them and the use of concrete sensing facts is what helps them relate to their interest. When an ISTJ character is dedicated to a passion, no one knows as much as they do about it. 

Examples: Hope Van Dyne (Ant-Man), Gray Fullbuster (Fairytail), Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory), Dr. Caitlin Snow (The Flash), Bob Belcher (Bob’s Burgers), Ross Gellar (Friends), Tatsu Toro/Katana (DC Comics), Riza Hawkeye (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood), The Swede (Hell on Wheels), Bill Weasley (Harry Potter Series), Doug Guggenheim (House of Lies), Hailey (Mozart in the Jungle), Ben Wyatt (Parks & Recreation), Homura Akemi (Madoka Magica), Uhura (Star Trek Film Series), Lt. Commander Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Edward Cullen (Twilight Saga), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), and Unalaq (Avatar: Legend of Korra).

Family-Oriented Center

These characters deeply care for their family (not necessarily genetic) and are often found as the grounding center. They may not seem caring like their ISFJ counterparts, but these ISTJ characters are harsh defenders of their families and are often the character others rely on as a steady constant in their lives. When this steady constant falls, many times the family does as well. They are the foundation of their family unit.

Examples: Alexei Alexandrovich Karenin (Anna Karenina), Quentin Lance (Arrow), Ross Geller (Friends), Bob Belcher (Bob’s Burgers), Ned Stark (Game of Thrones), Fergus (Pixar’s Brave), Dean Forester (Gilmore Girls), Mallory Hanson (Grace and Frankie), Maximus (Gladiator), Sophie (Howl’s Moving Castle), Bagheera (Disney’s The Jungle Book), Theodon (The Lord of the Rings), Chloe Decker (Lucifer), Powhatan (Disney’s Pocahontas), Sun Bak (Sense8), Elinor Dashwood (Sense and Sensibility), Fiona Gallagher (Shameless), Red Forman (The ‘70s Show), Edward Cullen (Twilight Saga), Elena Gilbert (The Vampire Diaries), and Maggie Greene (The Walking Dead).


The Zealot ISTJ character is often being unwillingly controlled by their inferior Ne. They find the outer world with it’s constant change in meaning separate from their own deep, personal inner meaning is in conflict. They fear change and try to fight it with everything they have. If they admit that the world has this changing meaning outside of themselves they feel everything they believe in is threatened and are unable to cope with such conflict. They refer to their tertiary Fi for comfort and try to morally back their subjective perspective up with subjective judgement. Thereby fueling their own opinion and clinging to their personal identity, unchanging. Many ISTJ villains fall into this trope, but not all are villains. That is important to keep in mind.

Examples: Grinch (Ron Howard’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas), Alexei Alexandrovich Karenin (Anna Karenina), Claude Frollo (Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame), Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory), Javert (Les Miserables), Ross Geller (Friends), Sam Healy (Orange is the New Black), Angela Martin (The Office), Elsa (Disney’s Frozen), P.L. Travers (Saving Mr. Banks), Dean Forester (Gilmore Girls), Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle (Harry Potter Series), The Swede (Hell on Wheels), Nessarose (Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West Novel), Theo Galavan (Gotham), and Unalaq (Avatar: Legend of Korra).

The Cynic

The ISTJ cynics are often mistyped because they don’t really believe in anything. They are often misread as ISTP to be honest. But the Cynic ISTJ is indeed, very ISTJ. They are some of the most ultimate realists, not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. They usually have life experiences of pain that has formed their perception of reality. Their dominant Si seeing the facts, not fanciful ideals. Their tertiary Fi not seeing or growing up with that feeling that they or anyone else is a special snowflake. They often are lost, without a cause, not trusting those with big ideals. They see things as they are and nothing more. They are the bluntest ISTJ filled with some of the most ironic humor. They are usually disappointed with their lot in life.

Examples: John Murphy (The 100), Mai (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Chas Chandler (Constantine), Helga Katrina Sinclair (Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire), Phantom Stranger (DC Comics), Gwynne (Galavant), Mad-Eye Moody (Harry Potter Series), Suzana Ayuwaza (Maid-Sama), Shikamaru Naru (Naruto Shippuden), Dinesh (Silicon Valley), and Princess Kwenthrith (Vikings).

Love Triumphs Part 13: Friday Morning

Jared Padalecki x Reader

1250 Words

Story Summary:  AU (I love Gen, and love her with Jared.) Jared and Gen have split up, but are still friendly. You, the Reader have recently started acting on Supernatural, and have fallen in love with Jared. Both of you get hate due to the fact that you are much younger than he is.

Catch Up Here: Masterpost

“But we don’t want to leave Y/N.” Tom pouted as Gen stood in the hallway. “She was super nice. She played with us, we watched a movie, and Dad even ordered pizza. Can’t we stay one more day?” He begged.

Glancing at Gen, you waited to see how she would take it. They were her boys, her blood, and you were only the new girlfriend. “Well, maybe we could stay a little bit longer. That is, if Y/N doesn’t mind?” She asked, looking at you.

Even though you still had to pack for the convention you were leaving for tonight, you couldn’t say no to her. How would that look? Refusing to spend time with his ex and children. “Sure. I was just going to make myself some tea, would you like some?”

Woohoo, finished up the long fingerless gloves today, ends woven in and had a bath.

The first picture is before the bath, hopefully you can see the yarn plumped up a bit and got a slight halo, which I wasn’t expecting, but I really like! They are currently drying.

My friend has first port of call on these, since she has worn all her cashmere ones out, these might make a nice stop gap. If they are not her style then I’ll stick them in the gift box! All in all I’m very happy with them!

You can find my notes on my Ravelry project page.

“And then the bitch has the audacity to say that I’m the one who messed it up. When she’s the one who was basically propositioning the happily married client!”

Cas chuckled, taking another drag from his blunt as you both stood on the balcony, staring out into the city.

“Did she get fired?”

You shook your head, taking the beer from his hand and sipping at it.

“She’s lucky the boss is desperate for her. I swear, that Lisa girl is useless. She stoops to the lowest of lows. I don’t know how that bitch hasn’t been thrown in prison. She’s fucking gross”.

Shunk! Stuck in an elevator :D

( ̄▽ ̄) anon after my own heart

Today was not Hunk’s day.

First, his alarm didn’t go off and he ended up missing his usual train and having to wait for the next one. Then, some businessman spilled his coffee on Hunk’s shirt. And when he finally got to work, his boss yelled at him for being late and then yelled some more over a project that wasn’t even his. (It was Carl’s, whose desk was next to Hunk’s, but who looked nothing like Hunk, so Hunk wasn’t really sure why their boss always got them confused.)

Suffice to say, today wasn’t one of Hunk’s best days. However, there was one thing that Hunk clung to like a lifeline that made the otherwise shitty day take on a hopeful tint.

Hurt myself trying to transfer a resident to a wheelchair last night. I got fed up and texted my boss that I hurt myself and was just going to have to wait for the next shift to come in at 11 pm to help me. She ended up coming in and putting him to bed for me. I couldn’t even finish bed checks. It’s a good thing I have today off because my entire shoulder, even under my armpit, my right side, and my lower back are KILLING ME. This resident is much too heavy to just lift but no one ever puts the sling* under him when they sit him down or put him in bed because SOMETIMES he’ll stand and scoot over to the chair or bed. You can’t just attempt to put the sling under him once he’s sitting or lying down by yourself because, again, he’s too heavy. Everyone has a hell of a time just trying to change him and get him into the center of his bed. My boss didn’t acknowledge that I’d be back at that house tomorrow with this muscle soreness so I’m probably going to end up having to go back and aggravate it. It amazes me some of my coworkers consider that house to be their favorite. It’s back breaking.  I want my favorite house back but I’m hardly ever scheduled there anymore. I want to quit but it’s guaranteed hours, I need the money, and if I stick it out long enough to get CNA certified/experience I can apply somewhere with higher pay that hopefully doesn’t schedule me by myself. They wonder why they keep losing employees and can’t get any new ones. -Abby

* The sling is something used to lift the resident using a machine. -Abby

here’s my experience at EVERY DAY6 concert in JULY (warning: long and all over the place

i got there around 20 minutes after lining up started so didn’t have to die in the heat for a long time 

(wanted to steal this after the show)

& when we finally entered the venue, i was stupid and chose the wrong spot (i was greedy and chose section A to get an earlier admission number -_-) because there wasn’t only one tall person in front of me but another tall person in front of me AND the girl next to me kept pushing so i had to pretty much tip toe throughout the entire concert to see brian  (so i couldn’t really see his hands fml) & wonpil.. but i was in the 4TH (?) row. and about 15 minutes before the show, a girl in section B fainted so if any of you are planning to go to a show in the future, please 챙겨 your 건강. 

the show started off with some space ship-like thing and they were all standing in the middle AND THEIR FACIAL FEATURES.. I WAS OF COURSE AMAZED BY BRIAN’S NOSE AND CHEEKBONES!!! and then they started off with colors like WHAT THE WHO EXPECTED THEM TO START THE CONCERT OFF WITH COLORS ??

let’s start off with jae. jae looks the same on screen and in person. i was actually surprised when he passed by cause i expected him to be extremely tall but he wasn’t that much of a giant i expected him to be. here’s jae & his arms: 

sungjin looked the same as well. his eyes are really big, and his double eyelids are so thick and prominent. 
dowoon also looked just like how i expected him to look ; same on screen and in person. he’s so cute i wanted to cry (i didn’t cry throughout the concert tho wow thanks for ya’ll prayers. i was sane) when he was talking with wonpil on stage. 

i was actually really surprised by wonpil. he’s 100000000X more handsome in real life and HIS HAIR WAS UP TODAY. like… he looked like a foreigner.. HE DOES NOT LOOK KOREAN IN REAL LIFE. I WAS ACTUALLY MESMERIZED BY HIS BEAUTIFUL FACE. 


I SAW HIM IN A WHITE SHORT SLEEVE WITH MY OWN TWO EYES AND NOT THROUGH A SCREEN. tbh i kept looking at his arms once they changed. 

and this is him getting choked up (really wanted him to just let it out). he said throughout the concert he got choked up so many times and almost lost it when we sang Hi Hello while waiting for them to come back out for the encore because the mics were probably still on & he heard us singing through his in-ear. 

of course there are no words to describe how amazing their vocals are. EVERY SINGLE MEMBER,  i repeat EVERY MEMBER has such distinct voices and are all great live including bb dowoon!!! he sang so much today & it’s pretty crazy how much he improved over such a short period of time and how well he sang during his 널 생각해 duet with wonpil. and i’ve said this the last time i saw them at kcon but wonpil’s voice is so strong and powerful. 
jae’s voice of course is so soft AND BRIAN KANG YOUNGHYUN .. i saw him nose scrunch .. NOSE SCRUNCH !!! (these pictures make it look far but i saw their expressions SO clearly) AND LITERALLY MELTED AND LOST IT RIGHT THERE WHEN HE SANG “MOVIE~” RIGHT BEFORE THE SECOND VERSE. BOY KNOWS THAT THAT LINE KILLS EVERYBODY (i think) BECAUSE HE SMIRKED AND HIM TUCKING ON HIS COLLAR AND TEASING WHEN WONPIL SAID IT WAS HOT SO THEY SHOULD TAKE SOME STUFF OFF but brian said he didn’t have anything underneath AND DURING HIS HUNT RAP AND if i remember clearly, HE GRABBED A FISTFUL OF HIS HAIR WHEN HE SAID “DISHEVELED HAIR” ……………… thinking about it again , i cry. 

i was second away from the fence so i got to see brian REAL CLOSE AND JAE AND WONPIL AND DOWOON and i touched wonpil’s hand AND I GOT TO WITNESS THIS SMILE RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES (not my photo) 

HE WAS SO ADORABLE. he saw all the fans had their hands sticking out so he walked back and put the mic under his arm and ran between the fences.
and yes , i touched brian’s arm or shoulder in his WHITE SHORT SLEEVE !! 

they did so many short versions of their old songs but i think it’s been a while since they sang 이상하게 계속이래 which was a nice throwback & their unreleased song BUENO (which wonpil said was french …. lol) WAS SO GOOD and i recorded it cause i’m not sure when we’ll ever hear it again. BUENO was inspired by despacito lol. BUT RAPPER JAEHYUNGPARKIAN sjflksj both of them are so good but brian’s flow yo. 


THEIR NEW SONGS ARE BOTH UPBEAT but their side track ‘놀래!’ is more upbeat and LOT OF FALSETTOS TO LOOK FORWARD TO. brian’s bass riff in the beginning of the title track gives the song kind of a funky vibe. overall liked both songs (as always) but couldn’t really pay attention to the lyrics. 

also, nichkhun, shinee’s key, and actress nam jihyun came today. ALL OF THEIR FACES ARE SO SMALL (especially key) and apparently park jaejung, dowoon’s only celebrity friend, as he claims, came & when he introduced him, he wasn’t there so dowoon was all … slfjlksj my bb is adorbs. 

the fanchats, which i never practiced or looked at, just came out of my mouth naturally lol. the singing was pretty crazy as well and i was finally able to be a part of a ‘congratulations’ 떼창 and sing jae’s part for him.

i’m sure everybody has these moments at concerts where you think the singer looked at you but there was one time i waved to brian and he smiled THE FREAKING SMILE THAT I ALWAYS SAYS MAKES MY HEART FLUTTER FJSKLJ OK I’M CONVINCED THAT HE’S SEEN MY TUMBLR LOL JK BUT IMAGINE? THAT MEANS GOODBYE @YOUNGK. but there were many moments i felt like sungjin was actually looking at me and i got so fkjsd so looked away a couple of times … O K! shut up liz time to sleep 

oh and i waited with a few other people to see them leave but they left without rolling down the window but one member has his hand sticking out of the car and they just left like that so never figured out who that was lol but all i did was wave back.

there’s so much more that i want to say but there’s so much that went on that i don’t even remember and i’m so sore but STILL HAD A GREAT TIME,, thanks to the people who asked. 
i’ll be uploading a few videos & if you read all this, wow ily thanks.

Hello, overwatch-x-reader here! Lovely to see a new imagines blog, I wish you luck with it going into the future! A little request to hopefully get you started, how about some protective Hanzo? Headcanons or a mini fic, whichever you'd like :)

I decided to do some HC’s! Hope you enjoy!

~Mod Fennec

Protective Hanzo Headcanons
* Hanzo seems like a pretty chill guy
* He really isn’t though
* Especially when it comes to his loved ones
* He can get rather protective of them
* Always by their side whether in battle or just hanging out
* If he saw someone trying to make a move on them he’d just suggestively rest his hand on any nearby weapon
* Even if it’s a stick
* I mean honestly, someone tell him to calm down before he tries to beat someone to death with a twig
* Although he knows he can be a little overprotective he tries not to be possessive
* But he can act a bit like a body guard at sometimes
* Usually, he won’t be protective unless something triggers it
* He’ll just be passively in the same room but if he senses something he is instantly by your side
* Although Hanzo isn’t the most affectionate, especially not in public, he will put and arm around you if he needs to make a point
* He can also be immature when it comes to someone he loves
* He might wrap his arm around your shoulders if he sees someone trying to make a move on you and while walking away he’ll turn his head to look at them while he walk past and just mouths something along the lines of ‘suck it’
* Of course he’ll deny it if confronted about it
* Although he probably didn’t say exactly that
* But definitely something similar
* Overall, he can be a little immature and overprotective but he has good intentions

I’m so sorry this took me so long!! I don’t know why but I just had so my trouble with answering this one but I hope it’s okay and I hope you enjoyed!

Dreamy Eyes - Supernatural

Sam x Reader
Word count: 1387
Hope you enjoy!

Having a father who is a hunter of the supernatural is hard enough with the constant worry of if he’ll ever come home, but with the continual moving around and the endless first days of school, things were getting a bit too tough to handle.

But, your father had finally decided to settle for a while. You both had moved into a nice little town and you were about to begin your first day of school.

As it turns out, your first day wasn’t a good one. You were set up with a buddy – a prissy preppy girl – but, it got you nowhere. When your answer to, “do you like parties?” was “not really,” you were abandoned. You followed one girl from you class around for most of the day while receiving strange looks but until she went into math instead of history, you were again abandoned.

Your last class of the day was English which you managed to find with ease after you got a lady from the office to show you. You were late nonetheless and received annoyed glances from the rest of the class. The teacher, however, was pleased to see you and introduced you.

   “This is Y/N Y/L/N. You may have seen her around already but I personally love the introduction. Y/N, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?”

Sam Winchester, the recently new boy sitting in the back, lifted his head and looked to the girl at the front of the class.

   “Well, if you don’t already know, I don’t like parties so you can save your breath,” you said, glancing at the prissy preppy girl at the front. The girl scoffed and crossed her legs. You smiled and looked back up at your teacher. Sam smirked and watched as you were shown your seat.

HMMM I WONDER WHO SENT ME THIS (it’s @dontcareajot, thank you love) 

Dan’s just sitting on the beach, minding his own sweet business, reading some trashy magazines Dana brought and ignoring the huge ocean full of scary big sharks and octopi and shit, when a shadow drifts over him. He looks up from an article detailing the pros and cons of waxing your legs—apparently it’s damaging to your skin—to see a guy with great arms and a sheepish look on his face. Dan forces himself to look the guy in the face and not just stare at his arms or any other part of his anatomy—look, it’s not his fault if the guy’s swim suit is a little tight, okay?

“Hey, uh, can I ask you kind of a weird favor?” Cute Guy says.

Jared Kleinman x Reader (Drabble) Tampons

Word Count: 597-ish

Description: Y/N makes Jared buy her lady supplies lol

Warnings: Female Reader?, innuendo, Reader teases Kleinman but I swear it’s meant to be sweet.

Notes: Yet another one of these but I’m trying to get in at least one a day so I can stick to my schedule and hopefully get better. Jared also seems kinda out of character in this but I hope it’s bearable lol.

Guide: Y/N = Your Name

“Tampons? You want me to buy tampons?”

You huffed in annoyance as your boyfriend complained on the other end of your phone call. “Yes, unless you want me to bleed out, Kleinman. I would really appreciate it babe.” You pleaded.

“Fine, but you owe me one.” He sighed and hung up the phone. “Well I didn’t need the salt.” You mumbled at his abrupt end to the call. You groaned at the painful cramps in your abdomen and prayed that this period would be a quick one.

You had your senior prom in a few days and did not want to be dealing with this. A few minutes passed by and you got a call from Jared. Pressing ‘Answer’ you held the device to your ear. “Yep?” “Uh, what kind do you want?” He asked quietly.

“Huh? Babe you have to speak louder, I can’t hear you.” You spoke attempting to hide your amusement towards the situation. “What kind do you get?” Jared said loud enough for probably God to hear. “Tampax I guess? Thank you.” You giggled at his frustration.

“I’ll be there in five.” Jared murmured and hung up again. You smiled at your boyfriend’s embarrassment and got up to make popcorn.

Tonight was the annual date night, and the movie chosen by Jared of course, was Star-Trek. You personally were a Star Wars fan yourself but didn’t complain. After the popcorn was done, you piled up pillows and blankets on the couch and waited for your lovely servant to show up. About two minutes later, a knock sounded at your door and you yelled,
“It’s open!” loudly.

Someone’s hands covered your eyes and whispered in your ear, “Guess who?” “Connor Murphy? Ooh I love me some stoner bad boy.” You said with a fake lustful accent. Jared scoffed and began to tickle your sides mercilessly.

You yelped in a snorting laughter as he jumped over the couch in order to get a better angle for his attack. “Ja…Jared, stop I’m gonna pee!” You hollered hitting his arms with you fists in attempt to get him off of you.

“Should’ve seen the cashier’s face when I was buying those stupid things, Y/N!” He countered with an amused smirk. Eventually, he stopped his attack and left you heaving and red in the face as a box of tampons was tossed lightly on your stomach.

“Thank you baby.” You smiled kissing him on the cheek, going the bathroom. After you came back, Jared was already settled on the couch and had the movie playing.

You had changed into pajamas, which consisted of both Jared’s favorite sweatshirt and pair of sweatpants. “Hey, those are mine!” He spoke seeing your familiar get up. “It’s cozy, you shouldn’t have left them here!” You said smirking with a fake lustful accent.

His ears turned a dark red as he adjusted his glasses. He opened up his arm for you to lie down on his chest. The two of you shared a large bowl of popcorn as the movie went on. At one point, you were just looking intently at Jared’s expressions as he watched.

The way his lips would move as the actors’ did to their lines and how excited his eyes were. While he was distracted, you snatched his glasses and placed them on your own face. “What do you think? Am I a nerd now?” You smirked posing in the eyewear.

Jared leaned forward and placed his lips on yours in a passionate manner. He stayed like that for a while and then pulled back with his own smirk. “Nope, sexy as hell though.”

{how I got a 5.0 this semester}

Hi everyone! Yes, I haven’t written a post in  f o r e v e r, but I figure now is a good time to update y’all on what’s going on in my life.

Last semester (aka Fall 2016), I took 6.034 Artificial Intelligence, 6.046 Design and Analysis of Algorithms, 21G.901 Korean I, and Conversations You Can’t Have on Campus (a seminar style class). I ended up getting 100% in 6.034 and scraped by with an A- in 6.046, so overall I am pretty satisfied with my grades :)

I want to use this post to reflect on what I did last semester to do well in my classes, and hopefully give you a few tips on how to get the most out of your classes as well!

The theme in all these tips is simple: don’t just study harder, study smarter.

  1. Make a schedule and stick to it. I use the Calendar app on my Macbook to schedule in all my classes, office hours, study time, and even breaks. I use different colors to denote different classes, and I use one color for scheduling break time. That way, I can hold myself accountable for using all the time I scheduled to study for an exam and also motivate myself until the next break. It’s also easier to change around my schedule, and I never forget events.
  2. Know the syllabus. If homework is only worth 5% of your grade in Class 1 and it’s worth 40% in Class B, but you only have time/energy to complete one of the assignments, then it’s a no brainer which one you should do.
  3. Know the teacher. After the first quiz or exam, you should learn how the teacher writes exams. Then, for the next quiz, you can try to predict what kind of questions will be on it and study for that material. This is especially useful for multiple choice questions.
  4. Know yourself. If your first exam grade is lower than what you want, don’t just study for longer – learn from your mistakes. Why weren’t you able to come up with the right answer? What was your thought process and how did it differ from the answer key? If you ran out of time, what did you spend your time on during the exam and how can you cut down on it? On the flip side, if you are satisfied with your grade, learn from your success. How did you study for this exam and what helped the most? What was your thought process during the exam and how can you replicate it for the next one?
  5. Go to office hours!!! I’m pretty sure teachers are required to make themselves available to answer students’ questions outside of class. If you can’t go to the teacher’s office hours, then ask if you can come in during lunch or before or after school. If that doesn’t work, write them emails with questions that you have. Teachers love to see that you’re putting in effort to do well in their class, and going to office hours is the best way to show it.
  6. Ask questions. If you don’t completely understand a concept, the first thing to do is try to find an answer for yourself. The second step is to ask your teacher if your understanding is correct. The algorithms class I took is notoriously difficult, and one thing that really helped me was asking questions and then trying to put the explanation in my own words. That helped me get a better understanding of the answer and if I didn’t quite get it right, the teacher can explain further.
  7. Find your motivation. Try to motivate yourself beyond just “I want a perfect GPA.” For me, I wanted to a TA or grader next semester, and I knew that I needed to get A’s to qualify, so I used that to motivate me to learn the material to the best of my ability. For quizzes or exams, I would treat myself to a nice meal, a gadget I want, or half a day of shopping when I get a good result. Positive reinforcement works!
  8. Study and do homework independently. I know a lot of people will encourage you to form study groups, but all the exams are completed on your own. When you do homework in a group, if someone else figures out the solution, you can convince yourself that you would also have gotten it on your own, which isn’t always the case. What I found most helpful was attempting all the problems on my own, writing down questions I have, go to office hours and work on it with a TA, and then confirm my solutions with my friends.
  9. Get 7+ hours of sleep. This is actually probably the most important point. On average last semester I would say I got around 7 hours of sleep every single night. When you sleep, your brain solidifies everything you learned that day. For classes that require memorization, read through your notes before you go to bed, and flip through them again in the morning. But if you’re only getting 4-5 hours per night, your performance goes down drastically.
  10. Go on studyblr. Honestly the studyblr community on tumblr is so pure and filled with people who love to study and do well. Surround yourself with this positivity. When you’re around people who love learning and doing their best, it pushes you to do the same.

So yeah that’s it! I hope these tips help you this next semester as school starts up again. As always, if you have questions or just want to talk, please send me an ask or a message!!


Alpha Shield Pack x Reader

“Ok we need to all be on point this year, it’s getting to December and (Y/N)’s still not gone Christmas shopping which means…” Scott trailed off and Stiles sucked in a breath through his teeth.

“Means what, she can’t be that bad I mean she’s a small Scott what could she possibly do?” Liam asked and Lydia glared at him.

“As a gift, she cooked everyone Christmas dinner last year.” She muttered bitterly and Stiles had to hide a snicker. “She blew up the kitchen, without any magical werewolf powers.”

“Wait really?” Liam asked and Scott nodded.

“We were lucky it wasn’t as bad as the year before.” He admitted begrudgingly.

Colton Parayko #1 - Intimidation

I am also super into baseball and since some of my family lives out in St. Louis why not combine the two sports? 

As a PR representative for the St. Louis Cardinals your life was both a blessing and a curse. You were living the dream and reminded yourself every morning that you could’ve been placed with a much worse group of guys. The “kids” as you so fondly referred to them despite the large majority being older than you, treated you with the utmost respect and easily listened to your directions. As a large promotional campaign and to draw attention to the professional sports of your city you managed to work out a meet and greet of sorts with the Blues. With a bit of luck and a lot of determination, the Blues managed to make it through to the next round of the NHL Playoffs. The majority of the statistics analysts had the odds stacked against the Blues so if their predictions were correct it was best to get the photo op out of the way sooner rather than later.

You had spent the last hour finishing up pairing your players with the ones on the Blues to do a signed jersey exchange. A few of your boys had made specific requests on which player they wanted to be matched with. You assured them you’d take their thoughts into consideration but made no promises.  The bus to take the team was leaving in half an hour and you still had one more jersey to get signed and paired. With a quick bit of shuffling, everything was put into place and you were finally allowed to breathe in what felt like weeks.

There was a light knocking at the door and a sheepish Dexter Fowler walked in. You rolled your eyes and pointed to the neatly folded pile of jerseys, “find yours in there but Fowler so help me if you mess up the order I will make sure you sit out for the entire Cubs series.”

He held his hands up in surrender and found his quickly, signed it with a flourish and hightailed it out of the room before you could yell at him again.

You placed the jerseys into the large cardboard box and tucked your clipboard underneath your arm before kicking your office door shut behind you. The last of the stragglers ran to the bus as they saw you approaching and you smiled to yourself. It was nice to be feared.

Unfinished Vignette

He gripped a beer in his left hand and half a burning cigarette in the other as he leaned out on the paint-chipped balcony. The faint sounds of drunken cheering and muffled music streamed from behind him. Evan didn’t care too much for parties, but Tyler and Mini had dragged him out of their apartment, claiming ‘he needed air and fun’.

Well here he was, taking in a gentle sea breeze with a Marlboro and a cold one after the couple abandoned him to his own devices upon arrival. The stars sparkled in the clear night sky. He was enjoying himself, he would admit. It was nice smoking for the first time in weeks.

Maybe the two lovebirds were right, he mused as he took another drag. After his ‘amicable’ split with Brock he had holed up in his room playing video games and doing not much else for the last few weeks.  

He wasn’t going to lie; Brock breaking things off with him because of his new job sucked. He knew in his mind that it wasn’t going to be feasible maintaining their mostly-physical relationship that would deteriorate into sporadic meetings dependent on whenever he was back in town. But it didn’t stop the hurt in his heart – they had had a good thing going on and it was shit that it had to end.

He took another absentminded hit of his cancer stick and nearly choked upon exhalation when a voice cut through his thoughts.

“Can I bum a smoke?” The disembodied voice sheepishly asked. “My friend stole mine.”

“Depends.” Evan turned, setting his eyes on the stranger that invaded his quiet. He could barely make out the slight figure that stood next to him.

“I’d kill you for one but hopefully we won’t have to come to that.” He chuckled lowly, sending a strange thrill down the Asian’s spine.  “How about I give you a quarter instead?”

“No need to twist my arm. I’m in a sharing mood.” He blindly offered his pack and lighter in the darkness, and he felt warm fingers shakily pluck the items from his hand.

“Thanks man.” There were ripples of relief woven through his tone. “Marcel is such a little bitch, god damn…”

He expertly flicked open the worn Zippo lighter, and a honeyed glow illuminated the stranger’s face.

His hair was buzzed short. Dark brown, if his eyebrows were anything to go by. Defined cheekbones protruded as he pursed his thin lips, holding the cigarette in place. A pair of darkened blue eyes focused solely on waving the flame in front of the Marlboro with a childlike intensity.

With a quick snap, the fire vanished, shrouding his stranger’s face back into the dark, with only the bright orange tip as a source of light.

Evan listened as the sweetly sharp suck of the man’s first puff, a flicker of almost guilty attraction flaring up in his stomach.

He had to remind himself he was a free man now.

“I’m Jonathan, by the way.” He breathed out happily, the smoke spilling from his invisible mouth. “And you are?”

“EVAN! WHERE ARE YOU, ASSHOLE!” A third voice called out. “ARE YOU OUTSIDE?”

Hey there. I have a question. What are best and easy ways to cleanse a room/house? I feel energies around me especially at night and get a bit scared. Anything I should put/do to better the energy? Thanks :-)

I’m so sorry this is extremely late, but hopefully still relevant. I’m working on clearing out my inbox >.>

Personally I think some of the best and easiest ways to cleanse space are:

  • Literally cleaning. Wash your sheets, pick up your messes, organize your shelves, etc. Your bed and pillows tend to hold on to a lot of muddled energy basically just because that’s your restart place. You leave your yesterdays there and keep sleeping on them! I know it sounds weird, but other than literal dirt, if you believe that energy sticks around, clean your sheets.
  • Open a window or crack one if you can. A constant flow of fresh air is great for keeping energies clear.
  • I love using pillow or room sprays. Usually you can find pre-made ones pretty cheap at discount stores like TJ Maxx or Marshalls. They are usually water-based with essential oils like Lavender, Rose & Orange Peel, and generally already have cleansing or calming properties. They’re like little bursts of happiness! You can also opt to make your own with moon water (or regular filtered) and your choice of essential oils.
  • Stock up on selenite? It’s a self-cleansing crystal and is great for clearing spaces as well. You can often find these in smoke cleansing bundles because of this property. They’re relatively cheap and you might be able to get a good-sized one at a fair price.
  • Himalayan Salt lamps or pieces also are self-cleansing. They are supposed to work on clearing the air in your home and neutralize contaminants, so it will work the same way for your energetic space. They do, in my experience, degrade over time, but will last a long time. If you get one I recommend putting a cloth under it. Mine has always shed pieces over time and the salt can embed itself into wood or other porous materials and eat away at them.

I hope this is helpful to you!
