Why I Love Black People, Reason #8,372.

So last night, some poor intern at Yahoo probably lost their job with this tweet.

Learn to proofread, Beth!  Anyway, Black Twitter was not bout to just let that slide and the GOLD going down in the #NiggerNavy hashtag has me crying.  Now, I know some of my white friends/readers are slightly uncomfortable reading that hashtag, and that just means you were raised right.  But Black America has enacted a brief – very brief – reprieve where you can read and even chuckle about the n-word without collapsing into a puddle of guilt.  Note, this reprieve is not extended to speaking or typing, so I bet not see none of y’all’s handles on Twitter trynna participate.  I already know Buzzfeed is probably finding one of their many Black folks to compile a list and blur out the i-g-g in each tweet so they can post it and catch those clicks real quick.

And tell your Trumpublican cousins to stay out of our hashtag with their whining about how racist it is that we can say it and they can’t.

Edit:  I don’t check for Buzzfeed so I was wrong.  I mean, yes, they already made a post, but they didn’t blur anything.

GRRM questions/answers

Today I met GRRM and he held a 2-hour long session of question-answers. We were asked to write our questions on a piece of paper that were put in a box, and GRRM and his translators randomly chose them. There were silly questions and questions that he was asked many times before, but some were good questions and I took note of everything interesting he said.

- He was asked about the influence of American history on ASOIAF and GRRM said there was none. He was influenced by European medieval history, notably the Scottish history which was very violent, and not the American one.

- My question about Daenerys was chosen as the third question (I was lucky!) but he refused to answer it lol … I asked “How old was Daenerys when she left the house with the red door, and was it located close to the palace of the Sealord of Braavos?” (thanks Butterfly for suggesting it to me) I don’t know why he refused to answer about her age, but about the house with the red door he said there will be more revelations about it in future books.

- He was asked about his future projects (after ASOIAF) twice, and said that he concentrates on ASOIAF for now, and that after the main novels he has from 6 to 8 Dunk and Egg stories to write.

- He was asked where is Rickon and what will happen to him (a reader who forgot a part of ADWD it seems). GRRM said Rickon will appear in TWOW (why he answered this question but not the one about Daenerys’ age eludes me).

- There was a good question about the genders of dragons, but the whole audience laughed (“How to tell a male dragon from a female dragon?” I guess the one who asked this was more of a reader and the rest of the audience were more casual about their ASOIAF knowledge) so the question was a bit dismissed by GRRM as a joke. He said that it is not easy to understand the sex of dragons, sometimes even the dragons don’t understand it, and that if it lays eggs, the dragon is assumed female.

- GRRM said that he will not be reading any new chapter from TWOW. He has read enough of them already, and that if he keeps doing it, half of his book will be read before it is published. So I guess we won’t have new material from TWOW until it is released.

- What inspired him to create Ramsay Snow? GRRM said, and I quote, that he needed something “to bite Theon in the ass”. Ramsay was created for Theon’s storyline, and he is first presented as a prisoner and a servant and then rises to a high position while Theon becomes his prisoner and servant. Then there was a question about House Bolton in general (that they are a very interesting and mysterious House), and whether we will know more about their history. GRRM answered that he does not plan to write a book about them but probably in Fire And Blood there will be something.

- “It is rumored that there are 4 descendants of Dunk in ASOIAF. Can you say something about it?” George: “Possible, possible”.

- An interesting question was “Why are there so many sons who are unloved by their fathers, like Sam, Jon, Tyrion and Theon?” I watched George’s reaction carefully (I was sitting close to him) and he did not take issue with the assumption that Jon Snow is part of the “unloved sons” (obviously the dynamic talked about is Jon/Eddard, not Rhaegar). He nodded at the question and said that he does not have the full quote with him, but the great Russian writer Tolstoy once said that happy families are boring  - this was followed by a big round of applause cause every Russian knows this quote very well (the quote by Tolstoy is: All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.)

- He was asked about the real world equivalent of the Others, and he answered that the closest to it would be climate change. He talked quite a bit about it and said humanity needs to unite to face this threat and that it is urgent.

- “Will we know more about the origins of the Others?” Yes.

- “Are there industries in ASOIAF?” No.

- A good one was about Sansa - if she had told the truth at Darry, would Lady be still alive? GRRM said it is possible - Robert was not a thinker but an impetuous man, ruled by his emotions, so it could be that he would have directed his anger towards Joffrey instead of the direwolves. But it is not certain, because Robert wanted to keep peace in his marriage and might have decided to make Cersei happy on the matter of the direwolves anyway.

- “Does GRRM believe in absolute evil?” No, there is no absolute evil. Even the worst people in history had good qualities that unfortunately they did not use often, and there is “always possibility for redemption”.

- The person who wrote this question shouted “What about absolute evil as a concept, like death and oblivion?” which was a bit philosophical and GRRM talked about religions for a while, saying that they all promise eternal life but only after death. He then again stated that he does not believe in absolute evil, and said he explores the notion of “death is relief” with Arya’s storyline among the Faceless Men in Braavos.

- He always writes the book from the point of view of his characters, he becomes that character and sees things around him as the character would.

- He was asked to comment about the differences between the book and show characters, particularly Daenerys. GRRM ignored all the other characters and talked only about Daenerys - he said that the show one is older because there are laws in USA that prevent minors from having sex scenes so the decision was made to age Daenerys. Otherwise, book Daenerys and show Daenerys “are very similar” and “Emilia Clarke did a fantastic job”. (I guess he can’t really say negative things about the show, can he?)

- “Will Jorah ever get out of the friendzone?” (side-eyeing the person who asked this). GRRM: “I would not bet on it.”

- So here I will need your help to find out who GRRM was talking about - he was asked why did he kill Ned Stark, and he said that he already answered many times why he often kills off his main characters. Then he quoted an author named “Faulkner” (I do not know him, so I googled and found this name, but it could be “Folkner” or any similar spelling) who once said that “to be a hero sometimes you need to die.” Hmmmm

- He was asked about Hodor/Hold the door and if this was planned from the very beginning, and GRRM said indeed, he is great at planing and foreshadowing stuff, and that the mystery of Hodor’ name was with him since book 1. Unfortunately the show got ahead of him and reached this plot before he could, but he hopes he will get to it soon.

That’s pretty much it for the ASOIAF stuff. Some nice things not related to ASOIAF that he said:

- He loves cats (big round of applause).

- He respects integrity, honesty and being true to their principles the most in people.

- He was asked about time-travel and said it was fascinating - he talked for a while about the butterfly effect and of the novel A Sound of Thunder, and how stepping on a butterfly in the past resulted in dramatic changes in the present of the main protagonist, who returns and sees crazy far-right extremists in his country. He then threw shade at Trump and said “someone must have stepped on a butterfly” (round of applause) (GRRM posted about this on his FB just now).

- He loves caviar and “Saint-Petersburg is an amazing city”, he wishes he could see more of it.

- What would be an ideal crew to Mars? Another shade at Trump I guess, cause GRRM answered “it depends on whether the crew plans to come back”. lol (big round of applause).

- Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny is one of his favorite books.

Ok so that’s pretty much it :)

Seth Rollins Sex Headcannons

I love Seth so much… What are the odds that I’m in my Seth Rollins tshirt too! It’s fate guys. Good God look at that gif. UGH HE DOES THINGS TO ME!!!

@ii-love-roman-reigns and @wweimaginesandoneshots

- This guy has stamina. Like he is the myth who can have like 3+ orgasms one after another. So you’re in for a very long sex session.

- He will actually fuck you anywhere though. He’s up for anywhere at anytime. You name it and he has you with your pants down and near orgasm in like 3.2 seconds. 

- He can tell that you love his beard, like you don’t even have to tell him. He just knows when he moves and you shiver while biting your lip. From then on, he makes a mental note to always brush his beard across your thighs. 

- Is very rough but he can be gentle too. Say the words and he will have you on your back as he kisses every part of your body and treats you like a queen. Or he will have you against a wall with you on your knees. 

- If you look up the dictionary definition of tease, it says ‘Seth Rollins’ because he is the ultimate tease. I can bet that he will probably have you begging, even if you’re like me and you don’t beg for anyone. He. Will. Find. A. Way.

- There will be many occasions where you wake up with his head in between your thighs. 

- The guy probably has rope, handcuffs, vibrators… A fuckton of stuff to make it better for you. 

- He’s had a lot of one night stands, so I think his brain will tell him out of instinct to not leave any lovebites. But he will love it when you scratch his back, or his arms. 

- I think he’d have a kitten kink. But not that much of a daddy kink tbh.

Hello! In my art I find myself stuck with continuously positioning the head in a 3/4s turn and I have so many problems keeping the face symmetrical when I do a front view. Any tips?

Your best bet when it comes to drawing a front view is to map out the position of the features of the face. I use just a horizontal and vertical line but you can use more to get really precise with it.

And don’t get too crazy about everything being perfectly symmetrical. No one’s face is that perfect. If it bothers you then you can either use tracing paper or if digital, duplicate and flip the eye or whatever is giving you trouble. There is nothing wrong with that and it’s not “cheating”

Lena Luthor x reader (Worked it out, and figured you out)

Request: I love your writing! Can you do one with Lena x fem!reader? It’s Lena’s first time in the DEO and sees reader training and gets hit with gay panic. Then both flirting over being complete science nerds. Thanks!!     

a/n: YOU BET I CAN. And also… thank YOU! All the prompts you folks send me is what keeps this blog going! I’m getting at it at a relatively steady pace I think, sometimes it’s a little bit difficult than other days to find inspiration, but somehow you all manage to surprise me and remind me of how wonderful this fandom is, and then it makes me want to work even harder and contribute what I can to it! So thank y’all so much!!

Fun little sidenote, it’s actually my birthday today! :D I have too many cute fic ideas swimming around in my head (which is a little bit of a rarity these days) and I’m not even sure when I’m going to get to write for them if I’m going to be off being a loud, delinquent dumbass all weekend. But, yeah! I’m feeling extra inspirational and thankful today… maybe that might even translate into some fics that nobody asked for LOL.

Have fun with this fic though y’all! I was in the mood to write something cracky with J’onn in it and I have not a clue as to why… You’re also a little bit of an ass in this one too but it’s totally fine, it’s part of your charm obviously

- - - - -

For as long as you can remember, you have always been a force of nature. You knew how to work hard and you knew just how hard to push yourself to make the reward that much sweeter.

Simply put, you had fun living life, and despite the handful of troubling setbacks and the unavoidable years-long turmoil that is the discomfort of adolescence, you still looked at the world like it was your playground.

As rambunctious and tenacious as you were, you had just as much discipline, and it paid off deliciously in a plethora of ways.

You would say the human body is a blessed vessel; the tone and curves of some, the muscle and elegance of others, the ability to persevere and flourish, to deconstruct and to rebuild, it amazed you all the same.

What amazed you particularly (and was frequently the subject of ire around all your friends) is how you could eat like absolute shit and still maintain the form that you do.

As it was, you found yourself at the DEO working off last night’s conquest of an army’s weight of cheesy garlic bread and a late night call with Domino’s.

Same Dark Places

There was this song that I heard today called Same Dark Places by JR JR that sounded like it could be a Bughead song to me and I just had to write a fic about it. Here are a few of the lyrics. Enjoy! 

(Apparently this song was on 13 Reasons Why and I didn’t realize it until after I wrote this so that’s cool!) 

I know everybody goes to the same dark places

Sometimes in the dead of night when you think that you can’t make it

You might find I left a light beside the bed for you

Cause I’ve been there too

“Bets?” 

Jughead crawled through Betty’s window, sliding onto the cushioned bench below the windowsill and stepping into the pitch-black bedroom.

“What’s going on? I just got your text,” Jughead whispered, taking a step closer to her bed to find Betty curled up in a ball, wrapped in a blanket with her blonde hair brushed off to the side of her pillow.

“I can’t sleep,” she muttered into her pillow, her voice slightly muffled from the fabric. 

“I can see that,” Jughead pointed out, taking a seat at the edge of her bed and resting a hand on her hip. “Something on your mind?” 

“It’s just - everything,” Betty sighed, unable to say anything more. She had so many thoughts rolling around her mind that she didn’t know how to sort through them to find one coherent enough for anyone to comprehend. 

“Come on, Bets, you can talk to me,” Jughead prompted, his hand sliding up her arm to smooth down the hair sprawled across the pillow. 

Betty rolled onto her back, glancing up at the ceiling to focus on the dark shadows spread along the white surface. 

“Sometimes I lay awake at night and I can’t stop thinking about all that’s happened with Jason and Polly and my parents and Chuck and it gets to the point where I get so angry that I can’t breathe anymore. It’s like there’s this black shroud covering every part of me that’s so suffocating that I can’t - I can’t-”

Betty’s hands moved up to cover her face as the tears began to form in her eyes, leaving her unable to finish her sentence. 

“Hey, shhhh,” Jughead soothed, pulling her hands away from her face and tilting her chin towards him so that she would meet his gaze. “That dark place you’re talking about? You’re looking at a frequent flyer. In fact, I’m probably a VIP at this point. I’ve been there too many times to count.”

“How do you save yourself from drowning in it?” Betty asked in a small voice. “I search and I search for any sign of light but I can’t tell which way is up sometimes.” 

“You think about the parts of yourself and your life that give you any shred of joy or hope and you imagine those parts bursting with color and sunbeams and you keep thinking about it until the shroud lifts, even if it’s just a little,” Jughead told her. “At least that’s what I used to do when I was little. Now it’s a little different.” 

“What do you do now?” Betty wanted to know, her expression softening as she let herself find comfort in Jughead’s words. 

“I think about the girl with golden hair and a beautiful smile who lives next door to my best friend,” Jughead admitted, leaning forward to brush his fingers lightly across her cheek. “She tends to light up my whole world even on the darkest days.” 

“Jughead Jones, I’ve never heard you say anything so cliche in my entire life,” Betty teased, her lips curling into a slight smile as she let herself feel at ease for the first time in what felt like days. 

“This girl’s worth it,” Jughead told her, returning her smile with a mischievous one of his own. “Don’t tell anyone though. I have a reputation to uphold.”

“Secret’s safe with me,” Betty assured him, her smile beginning to fade as the darkness started to settle around her again. 

“And if none of those things work, there’s always this,” Jughead pulled out a round touch-light from his back pocket, holding it out for Betty to take as she sat up against the pillows on her bed. “I got this for you a few weeks ago when you first told me you were having trouble sleeping.”

“A night light?”

“I remembered the story you told me about the one your sister gave you when you were kids and how devastated you were when you lost it,” Jughead began, adjusting his position on the bed so that he was facing the wall above the nightstand. 

“Whenever you feel yourself drifting into your dark place, and you can’t find anything or anyone to pull you into the light I want you to hit the button beside your bed so that you know that you’re more than just the darkness you feel,” Jughead told her, removing the film from the back of the light and sticking it to the wall next to her bed. “You’re illuminated with so much love and life and beauty. And I want you to see that every time you turn on this light.” 

With one push of its round center, Jughead let the darkness be taken over by the light that he had given her with a soft, dim glow that completely changed the atmosphere of her room. 

“Juggie,” Betty breathed, smiling up at him as she took in the newly-illuminated version of her room that made her feel safe and happy for the first time in a long time. 

“Promise you’ll use it?” Jughead asked, taking her hand in his and raising a curious eyebrow in her direction. 

“I promise,” Betty assured him. “Thank you.” 

“That’s what I’m here for, Bets,” Jughead reminded her, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear and leaning back to meet her eyes. 

“But whenever I do turn it on, I won’t be thinking of me,” Betty admitted, reaching up to place a hand on the smooth skin of his cheek. “I’ll be thinking of the boy who cared enough to give this to me. He’s the one who brought the light into my life.” 

Betty scooted forward on the bed to lean in so close that her nose grazed gently against his. 

“I’ll never forget that.” 

With that, Betty met his lips with a soft kiss, letting her heart and mind and soul be filled with the light that Jughead had given her just by being there. Even if the darkness wouldn’t be gone completely, she knew that every time she turned on that light, she wouldn’t be alone.

Prologue


”Don’t be silly,” another non-grateful glance from my mother was sent straight to my face, ”you can be eighteen but it doesn’t mean you can go outside by yourself to meet your loving boyfriend.”

”And he is still not allowed to come to the palace, how equal is that?” Madness took over me again, trying to explain the Queen herself that I deserve some normal lad’s rights too. ”People don’t know that we are a thing, isn’t that already enough to go incognito and be myself who I am already?” I sighed.

”You’re a Princess, my darling. We do have to be careful what we are doing and saying, not just loose in and go with the flow,” her sigh was louder and more angrier than before. ”Also, in my opinion, but I don’t know  your father’s, you should break up with him - it’s not going to work out like that way. Come on, look at your nephew Harold, what happened with him and this girl Hannah - kinda hurtful, wasn’t it?”

So i was in math and since i couldnt finish a stupid exercise i made paper planes with them (i use like a “draft” where i try many ways to find a solution and then copy it clean) The teacher was gone for a minute and left the door open. So i took my chance. I said to my friend - I bet u a sandwich that it can fly across the classroom and through the door
The doors are like 13 feet tall so i throw the plane really high. Luckily i did this. Because the second it was over the door, the teacher appeared and she didnt even see it. She just return to her desk and answer everyones question.

anonymous asked:

Do you happen to have a link to the redesign? I cant, for the life of me, seem to find any pictures! I want to feel like I know what're talking about lol XD

Oh well here’s the whole promo pic 

it was actually sent to me so i don’t really know where it came from but i bet you can find it on TF wiki or even Twitter 

Probably my favorite trope in film/TV is when unfittingly happy music is played over really fucked up scenes

I feel like a lot of people don’t understand Sakura’s character at all. I feel like a lot of people don’t get the message Kishimoto is trying to send to his readers about Sakura’s character. Along with Rock Lee, Haruno Sakura is one of the most realistic characters in the entire manga. I have seen & heard so many people call her ugly, useless, bitch, flat, boring, worst female in Naruto etc. It just makes me want to facepalm myself, because yes, Sakura is imperfect, she has flaws and she has made many mistakes. She isn’t the curviest girl and she doesn’t have the biggest boobs out of the girls, nor does she have any special powers in her bloodline, no byakugan, no sharingan – nothing. Yet she’s still the heroine of this manga ( which some people find to be a mistake of kishimoto )

Sakura represents girls in the real world – unlike other characters like Naruto himself she makes a lot of mistakes. She was annoying as a kid, she was really like any immature little 14 year old you can find in real life. She cared about looks, boys and popularity. Yet, because this is a manga, and she is a main character people expect her to be perfect from the very start ( and i’m not only talking about fighting and strength ) Development is more than just physical power – i’m talking about the character’s attitude and how much they mature. I think it’s really beautiful that Kishimoto made a heroine so realistic – so simple yet complicated. He has created a girl many girls can find themselves in – in good and bad ways. Personally, i have a temper just like Sakura. I get annoyed easily – but i bet that i also used to be an annoying little kid some years back. Looking at Sakura – i see a girl who has matured so much and turned into this young, beautiful and powerful lady who would literally do anything for the people dear to her. I see an underdog, fighting and training so hard to become someone incredibly important and useful.

Now imagine a little girl, 14 years old, reading this manga and finding herself in Haruno Sakura – and see her turn into this strong beautiful girl. A girl who’s still beautiful with the imperfections people find in her – like her forehead, flat chest, bad start. Just imagine how much it would inspire a little girl to see a girl like herself turn into a badass little heroine.

People need to understand, that all the bad things they find in Sakura is what makes her so inspiring; she’s a perfect example of that people mature, change and that anyone can become anything.

theeirini  asked:

Hello Eli! I am a queer trans dyke and I'm a big fan of yours. I'd like to ask for some tips regarding the way you dress. I have to be at a wedding somewhat soon and I was thinking of dressing in a suit. I'm tall but have a slim build. How do I pick pants, what sort of jacket? And what do I look for in shoes? Any tips you can give are very much appreciated!

Hey! I get this question a lot. Finding suits that fit and don’t cause dysphoria can be difficult! Here’s my short guide for dressing dapper

H&M, Express, and Nordstrom (Rack) all often have good women’s suits that aren’t ridiculously expensive. Usually you should get a matching blazer and slacks then pick a shirt that compliments it (generally I wear men’s XS or boy’s M shirts from Topman, Guess, or H&M). For a more formal aesthetic, go with black or navy. I’m a big fan of gray and maroon too. As for shoes - oxfords or brogues are typically your best bet. My best shoes are leather men’s brogues from Nordstrom Rack (shoes designed for cis men and women are generally the same so I don’t worry about it too much - except the quality on men’s is better). If you want a less expensive option, many H&Ms have good shoes too. The ties I get either as gifts or online. Just make sure they’re cotton or wool, skinny, and not shiny. You can get good skinny ties for about $10-$15 on various websites. You can also find surprisingly great steel/silver skinny tie bars off eBay for like $2.50 too (just remember to wear them between your third and fourth button). Finally - be sure to match the color of the leather between your belt, shoes, and bag to tie it together (usually this should be black or brown). And that’s how you suit up! 

I am so sorry this took so long! I went ahead and did both shopping and getting lost reactions, since there weren’t many characters that you requested.

GIF Request: Shopping and Getting Lost - Hellsing

Alucard

He’s really confused by the high prices, wondering why the hell anyone would pay thirty dollars for a shirt.

If lost, shenanigans would ensue. He would play around while not being under the thumb of Sir Integra.

Integra

She more or less hates shopping, finding it quite obnoxious and will rather send others.

If Integra Hellsing goes missing from the group, you can bet your ass that chaos will ensue. Without the boss around, people would go rather nuts (see the above for Alucard as an example)

Seras

Seras is probably the only one that actually LIKES to shop and does it often when she can.

If separated in a big place, she would panic, trying to retrace her steps in order to find everyone, while trying to contain her panic.

Pip

He would go shopping for serious stuff and then return with stuff he didn’t need (ie alcohol)

Shenanigans again, especially if he were able to hang out with Alucard.

Walter

Walter goes along with it, but soon becomes tired of it, having to be dragged along (most likely Seras)

He would seem calm on the outside, but would secretly be freaking out. He was now stuck in a mall by himself - hell no.

one time I was in Chile and I was trying to purchase a power converter because all my electronics are american

so I went to this shady electronics shop on a corner and it appeared to be managed and organized entirely by an 11-year-old girl with bows in her hair. I asked about adapters, figuring she’d get her dad or boss to help, but no, she dove right in and started asking me about the voltage I needed and a heckton of other specs I didn’t even know existed until finally she nodded sagely, climbed up a stepstool to reach a mid-height shelf, and gently placed a dusty box on the counter in front of me. “it’s a little old,” she said, “but I think you’ll find this to be your best bet.”

i was kind of amazed at this precocious kid and asked what her name was.

“Isabella,” she replied, with a smug smile, “but most people call me Genius.”

i almost dropped the converter as i stumbled out of the store because never in my life have i wanted more to adopt a child

Okay yeah, I see a lot of different versions of Jack finding out Reaper is Gabe. But why haven’t I seen him become vengeful?

No, not at Gabe. At Talon. It was talon that really did this, at least that’s what many sources lead us to think. It was talon and talon’s corruption in overwatch.

Gabe was so important to him– Jack doesn’t want to be a hero anymore but you can bet your ass when he finds out what talon did he’ll be on the front lines wiping them out. He’ll be done with small gangs–

That would be talons real mistake. Keeping the reaper as an asset. Because THAT will be the deciding factor that turns the sights of someone who easily one of the most dangerous men in the world right on them.

He’d be vengeful. And he’d make sure to get his dues. He’d take talon out for that alone.

anonymous asked:

Hey! I am not that good at maths! Can you give me some advice/tips? That would help a lot. P.S. Your blog is amazing!

Hello!  ✨ Thank you very much! I’ll try to come up with some tips, but they might be lame haha I’ve always liked math so I kinda took it for granted all the time.

📐  DON’T NEGLECT ANY TOPIC - in math 99% of the stuff you’re going to learn is connected to each other. You can’t do the next thing if you don’t have the other one. So honestly, make sure you understand everything before moving on to the next topic.

📐  if you can’t understand something GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN - I think the difficulties in math might be because you’ve probably ignored one topic somewhere along the way. So I suggest going back, like grabbing your elementary math textbook, going through it and if you can’t remember something, open it up and do it again.

📐  PRACTICE&DISCIPLINE YOURSELF - discipline and making studying math a daily habit is crucial here tbh. You have to practice every day, especially if it doesn’t come naturally to you because some people have that. Practice even the most trivial things. Do 100 examples of the same kind, which in your mind REALLY is the same thing. It’ll help you memorize it and you know, muscle memory. 

📐  LISTEN TO YOUR TUTOR/TEACHER & ASK QUESTIONS - they really do have the knowledge. I believe some teachers just don’t know how to get through to students even though they have the knowledge. So if in your mind, your math teacher sucks, go on and ask them anything that you found difficult. It can be after classes if you’re shy! I bet they’ll help :) 

📐 FIND ONE TOPIC YOU’RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT - math is used to do so many useful things! Go through your textbook and find that one topic that will make you go like “that’s so awesome”! It can be geometrics (if you like drawing), probability (if you’re into gambling or lotto) or percents (if you’d just really like to know how much spirit is in your fav wine). Get excited about it! I’ll help you get through the more boring stuff and will act like a “prize”. 

📐  WATCH YOUTUBE TUTORIALS - they really are useful and cover a wide range of topics. Plus you can pause or go back anytime you want to so you can have your own pace. 

📐  ASK A CLASSMATE FOR HELP - there is probably at least one person in your class that gets math and always has, they probably have it naturally. Don’t hesitate to ask them for help with understanding a certain topic. Have them explain on an example or a task from your textbook. 

📐  TEST YOURSELF - if your teacher doesn’t do pop quizzes every class, then pretend they do. Finish your homework for the day, go eat something, relax, then come back after a few hours and try doing some tasks with your textbooks&notebooks closed. Maybe even have someone read you the task so you don’t even physically have the textbook. It really DOES help you consolidate your formulas and everything you’ve learned that day. 

That’s all I have! DON’T GIVE UP. Math certainly is a difficult subject and I get it, you can’t really learn it by reading, you’ll have to do some thinking too, probably a lot of it. But I guarantee, as soon as you begin to understand it, it never goes away, everything that you’ll learn in the future will be MUCH easier now that you know the basics and as soon as you’ll get your first good grade (and in math everything that gives you a pass is a good grade) you might even like it!   ✨

Good luck, hope this helped x

Any mcr history new fans should know? I've been a fan for just over two years now and still have no idea who Bert McCracken was or what he did, so I feel like I should know about him and more about the band haha

Oh, geez. A history of MCR for the new fan…I wouldn’t know where to start (or stop) without running the risk of boring everyone following! Your best bet is to read articles (I try to scan as many as I can), and invest in an old/used book about the band. I personally like this one and eventually I’ll get around to scanning the photographs in it.

As for Bert, you can find some more info here. The thing to remember is that the entire band was abusing alcohol and drugs (prescription and otherwise) partly as a way to deal with their own anxiety and depression issues. As someone with depression and panic disorder myself since I was 14 (started presenting as young as five), and a brother that was addicted to intravenous heroin, I relate to both the band’s mental health issues AND I dislike those that try to keep people struggling with substance abuse stuck in the cycle.

Good luck!
