i do picture and a quote posts

i dont think you really get them anymore but i especially hate any “"funny”“ 2012-esque Tumblr post which is like here’s 20 goofy pictures of my incredibly punchable face reacting to something that isn’t actually that exciting because im incapable of expressing emotion through words like if yr that self-obsessed get a yt account and start vlogging we don’t do that shit here

I absolutely emailed Melissa’s publicity team, her agents, and her managers, buuuuut someone is in fact on vacation so at least one is out of the office until the 25th. 

Even so, I sent it to a handful of others and I’m posting it because I want to do right by all of you. I attached some screenshots of quotes that I had permission to use that aren’t pictured here, and the email addresses of Melissa’s representatives were attained professionally. I hope this message is well-received because I think that as a community wlw deserve a lot better than what our Supergirl showed us today. ♡

The Time Capsule Challenge

I want to start a new tradition/challenge with “Animal Crossing: New Leaf”: a time capsule challenge. 

Mitzi asked me to go find her time capsule last night, and it occurred to me that I have been missing some great time capsule opportunities for myself. 

That’s what I encourage you all to do now, too! 

The rules are easy to follow, and you can do this however you’d like. There’s more than one way to recreate the memories. 

  1. Find an item that brings back memories or that you cherish a lot. 
  2. Wrap the gift in wrapping paper. 
  3. Go to a remote place in town - that also won’t be disrupted by possible villagers moving in (like the beach), or maybe even the island instead - and bury the wrapped gift. 
  4. Write your future self a letter with either a kind message, an inspirational quote, or really whatever you’d like. 
  5. Ask Pelly or Phyllis to set it for a specific date in the future. 
  6. Add that date to your calendar app, daily planner or wherever you keep your future events visible. 
  7. When it’s time to find your capsule and open your letter, post pictures about it! (I feel like using the tag “ac time capsule challenge” in your post would be awesome.)

There isn’t a “right” or “wrong” to the amount of time you give for a capsule, same as there isn’t a right or wrong way to even do this. I set mine for 2 months for this first time capsule. Perhaps you’d rather wait a year? It’s up to you! 

I hope you’ll join this challenge. It could be really fun.


With the reappearance of an old, best friend to my town, it’s brought back a lot of memories. So I’ve written myself a special message, with words of encouragement, and wrapped and buried an item that reminds me of the old days. 

~ I can’t wait to see it again in May. ~

Heyo~ This is my spread from two weeks ago. Finally coordinating my colors .-. But I had a lot of empty space after writing my to-do lists and such, so I decorated it a lot, using washi tape and post-it notes and quotes written in mildliners :)

I actually recorded myself doing this spread (and another one that I haven’t taken pictures of yet). If I uploaded it to Youtube, would you guys be interested?

“You sound like my nephew, always thinking you need to do things on your own, without anyone’s support. There is nothing wrong with letting the people who love you help you.”

• I also want to point out that this artwork is not mine. This post has gotten really popular and I wanted to put this out there that I did not draw this or any of the other posts on my blog. All I do is put quotes under the pictures. I have kept the watermark so people can see the original artist and I have added the source. Again I want to mention: This artwork is not mine. If any artwork on my blog is mine, I will most likely say explicitly, otherwise if it’s not, the source will be included.

  • constantly posting pictures of the sky as if he’s never seen it before
  • always adds a cheesy inspirational quote 

Lay:

  • god he’s so cute on snapchat i cANT
  • always putting emoji stickers everywhere
  • loves putting the filters on members and videoing them (baekhyun and him frequently do it together)
  • his story is just of the members doing things like eating n stuff but to Lay thats some seriously interesting stuff
  • which it is, lets be honest

D.O:

  • literally never posts a selfie and when he does its those shitty mirror selfies
  • only gives u like 3 seconds to look at each snap
  • always pictures of trees or a flower or a random park bench
  • no filters ever
  • has no idea what a snap story is and refuses to explore it any further

Suho:

  • never alone in his selfies
  • always has another member or friend or bird or literally anything
  • thinks all of the filters are hilarious and spends way too long playing with them
  • the bunny filter is of course his specialty 
  • his snap story is pictures of different restaurants he goes to and the food he gets at them

Kai:

  • literally thinks putting filters on pictures of people is SO FUNNY AND ORIGINAL
  • his snap story is just pics of models with the dog filter 
  • or it’s videos of actual dogs
  • accompanied with him giggling in the background
  • the only time he takes a selfie is when there is a dog involved

Sehun:

  • this bitch
  • he’s the type to post pictures of himself with the MOST flattering filter
  • especially the flower crown ones those are his main thing
  • either that or pictures of his outfit in a store mirror
  • literally never puts captions on anything

don’t get me wrong, i love seeing those court of dreams + instagram edits, they’re GORGEOUS and often really clever, but like, i want to draw attention to the fact that there is 0 percent chance, realistically, that each and every one of them would have a perfectly balanced Aesthetic grid going on

The Court of Dreams + Instagram, For Realsies:

Rhys: assorted things he finds pretty (tending towards the abstract; probably thinks he’s A Photographer but isn’t) with needlessly overdramatic, sweeping, vague statements about feelings or love or life’s journey attached to each one. lots of pictures of Feyre with GUSHING PARAGRAPHS about how much he adores her.

Az: his profile just says “mor made me do this.” has posted exactly one picture and it’s of a cool cloud or something.

Cassian: WORKOUT SELFIES. hashtags about illyrianLYFE and The Grind. candids of Nesta looking annoyed captioned with 80 thirsty emojis. occasional low-tier memes well past their expiration date poached from some third-hand site like ifunny. comments on everything everyone else posts.

Mor: actually pretty aesthetic. posts The Most out of everyone. the OOTD, ~brunch and mimosas with the girls!~, killer selfies, Sephora Shopping Haul, etc kind of trendy poster. Also in this AU she has a cat and posts a shitton of pictures of the cat, and also Azriel with the cat.

Elain: Lots of flowers, some selfies, mushy quotes about positivity and friendship, but also that friend who cannot shut the fuck up about her relationship. “Nesta, I have to unfollow Elain,” Cassian says blearily over breakfast while scrolling through his phone. “My entire feed right now is pictures of her and Lucien kissing. She’s got song quotes under each one. I can’t do this.”

Lucien: Doesn’t have instagram, but spends all his time getting into fights about politics and his opinions about movies on twitter.

Nesta: Infrequent poster. mostly pics of places she travels to. takes some selfies of dramatic makeup looks she’s trying, and never smiles in any of them. there are occasional videos of Cassian being goofy, though, and MAYBE that’s her giggling in the background but she’d deny it.

Feyre: Actually a normal internet human. Posts her art, ~aesthetic~ photos of her studio, occasional pictures of her out with friends. There is the rare cute picture of rhys, captioned with something like “i guess I love this idiot” in hilarious contrast to his ramblings about her. (There are no selfies. Feyre’s not good at selfies. Mor has tried to teach her how to Work The Angles but Feyre feels too weird taking pictures of herself.)

Amren: I can’t believe people think Amren would have any social media at all. She’s like a combination of Rosa from B99 and Ron Swanson: “You people already know too much about me.”

So I’ve been making some printables, cause I was hella bored. If you like them, please let me know. (Please keep in mind that I just started making these, so I probably suck super hard - but do let me know some tips and tricks.)

REVISION 

I have been meaning to do this post for an awfully long time, and have had numerous messages asking me about how I revise, so it is about time I got down to it. I think the main reason why I haven’t done this post until now is because I myself have actually also been figuring out exactly how to revise. Last year, I feel that I didn’t really nail a set revision technique, and although I did fine with my prelims, I didn’t feel like I was prepared at all, and vowed to find a revision technique to make me feel satisfied this year.

I’ve found that using different methods for different papers is currently working for me, so I will try to give you an overview of what I am currently doing. I’m not saying that these methods are going to be 100% successful for myself or for anyone else, but if you are interested in what I am doing right now, then read on. 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I’m currently splitting 3 of my 4 papers into a revision technique with 3 stages: 
STAGE 1: collating quotes on post-it notes, collating notes from previous lectures, essays and supervisions; defining topics or ‘themes’ to gather them into. 
STAGE 2: creating a series of colourful mind-maps on these topics, using my quotes on post-it notes to stick on the paper in relevant places/move about the page. On the paper, I will arrange my notes and thoughts into logical trains of thought which flow into a mini ‘argument’ that includes these quotes. I will then do the same kind of mindmaps on past paper questions, creating mini essay plans that include my portable quotes.
STAGE 3: PAST PAPER TIMED ESSAYS. There’s no real explanation needed here, only that I will probably first allow myself to look at my texts/notes during a timed essay, before then removing them from my sight/grasp at the final hurdle.   
I hope these stages make sense to people, and I will try to post pictures on here as I go. As you can see from the top image, I am currently only at Stage 1, but I will move to Stage 2 next week. 

In my Medieval Paper, we have to complete translations, so, additional to the above method, I have written out the passages we need to work on for translation (see the image with my two copies of ‘Sir Gawain’). Here, I have found that translating gradually with the help of both the Middle English version & the translated version has helped. I haven’t looked at the translated version yet, and have instead written out the Middle English in black pen, before going over the text, referring to the Middle English glossary, picking out any words I found difficult individually before writing them in light green alongside the Middle English. I will next go over the translated version I own, and come to a conclusive translation in dark green at the bottom of each page. 

For my fourth and final paper, Practical Criticism, I have found that the use of flashcards is probably the most helpful for all the critical terms that we need to know (see third image). After creating a set of flashcards and learning the terms, I will go through my past notes on different critical/theoretical schools of thought, creating more colourful mindmaps on each set topic. And then again, its PAST PAPER time.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

That’s it! I hope it makes sense. I am awful at knowing how to revise, possibly the worst person to ask if I’m honest, as nobody really tells you how to revise at university, which can mean that you waste time flailing around (that’s what I did last year). So now, I’ve just thought of various ways to change-up my revision technique and make it really dynamic. We’ll see if it works in the long-run, but it is working at the minute!  

This term, there are also revision lectures, classes and supervisions on in the English department; I have attended these so far, and I have felt that they have  really helped me to identify what I need to get done in my own revision time, so I will definitely carry on attending. Ultimately, so far this term, I have been keeping myself busy with revision, and I am really starting to feel like I am making progress. I’m actually quite enjoying it, so hopefully this feeling will last.

A week of Irwin: Day 5 - Quotes

Ashton’s quotes are the most beautiful and helpful things to me. Starting from August of 2016 till June of 2017 I was struggling, I felt sad, almost every day I would have a breakdown and would cry. One out of a few other things that would cheer me up would be 5sos, and it could be from a picture or to a video. There was a short period of time where Ashton was texting some late night tweets and it would be really meaningful and sweet. He would also occasionally post stories on instagram or snapchat saying loving things or him just being a goof which would cheer me up. His late night tweets meant a lot to me and I would always go back and read them when I felt down and felt like I can’t do whatever I was trying to accomplish. Here are some of his many beautiful quotes that he made. Sorry for the blurry pics. My 2 favourites are “If things are going bad and life is tough, hang in there, ride it out, come out on top <3″ and “You gotta breathe, well be okay. Cry cause I'm here to wipe your tears.”. These quotes stuck with me for those 10 months and helped me through a lot.
