i encourage you please

To all my writers out there, particularly fanfic writers because I am one and I’m feelin this hardcore

  • It’s okay that you haven’t written for a while, you can take breaks.
  • You can start writing again whenever you want, you don’t need an excuse.
  • If you would still like an excuse, here it is: I want you to start again, you should totally do it.
  • It’s ok if you’re out of practice, you’ll pick up traction again.
  • We’re all learners and its good to have role models, but try to be better than the writer were before, and try less to be ‘as good as’ someone else.
  • It’s alright to abandon a piece if you have no enthusiasm or passion left for it.
  • It’s okay to be needlessly dramatic.
  • It’s okay to be needlessly ridiculous.
  • Write the crackfic, write the rarepair, or write the popular pair. Write what you want to write.
  • Yes someone has probably written this scene before.
  • Write it anyway if you want to write it.
  • Yeah that trope has probably been done a million times.
  • Use it anyway if you want to use it.
  • Probably there are people who are tired of reading about that AU.
  • Write it anyway, they don’t have to read it.
  • Respect your audience, but don’t let other people dictate what you create.
  • Reblog your own work. Be proud of it. You deserve to pat yourself on the back.
  • I’m proud of you, you’re doing great.
  • Keep writing, keep making stuff. People will care. 
  • Future you will especially care.

There is a lot of fear and uncertainty in the world tonight. When I feel scared, I try to take a step back, close my eyes, and feel my place in the universe instead.

The problems and challenges we face are indeed intimidating and significant, especially when some people fear for their very lives. But there is a future worth heading toward. The universe is so immensely vast. It will endure. And so will we.

“I believe in humanity.”

Another note to my followers

Please, if you’re from America and need someone to talk to, please, PLEASE, don’t hesitate to message me, or talk to someone else. PLEASE TALK TO SOMEONE, strength in numbers! You might not know how to recover on your own, but together with others you can stand back up, with others you can live on purely out of spite. Show Trump and his followers that you aren’t so easily pushed around, keep moving forward, this is just a bump in the road, and once we emerge out the other side, we’ll be even stronger >:)

Please if you’re not American, reach out to the ones that are.  They are going through a rough time right now, and could get all the help they could get. You never know what a small message could do to encourage others. Actually strike that, it honestly doesn’t matter who the hell you are, if you need someone to talk to, PLEASE REACH OUT TO SOMEONE.

This is the time where we need to come together more than ever. Please help each other out, and eventually we’ll make it through!

This is important!

As a studyblr I think we can all agree that education is extremely important. So much so that it is a basic human right. But all too often girls are denied the access to education based on their gender. This is not only a gross violation of the right to education but also to equality and dignity.

We can’t all solve the worlds problems on our own though - I know this all too well. But we can try make a difference when we get the opportunity to.

Mossery is running a give back campaign on Instagram where if you repost the above image they will give the Malala Fund $1 per post/per person. Include the hashtags #MosseryGivesBack and #YesAllGirls.

Its so so simple to do and I encourage you all to just quickly go do it!

Please share this post to get the word out there!

You weren’t a princess. You were far, far from it. Your sister was. Everybody with two functional eyes saw that: while you were always in the shadows, she shone like a star, she looked like a swan. Once she entered a room, she filled it with her charm. You loved her, really. She was your sister, after all. But sometimes… sometimes you felt a poisonous seed growing in your tummy, feeding a beast that wanted to kill the source of light from your sister’s, that wanted to rob it and made it yours. You were okay with always being in the shadows, with being everybody’s second choice… but sometimes, you couldn’t help yourself from wishing you were not.

Especially when it came to Harry.

>>Group chats<<

Since I’ve been away - the group chats were not in my control but since so many of you are still interested, here is the information regarding the group chats! More slots have opened up! Grab them while you can! :3 

**for those of you that have sent me a message already - please resend a request because my inbox has deleted a few**

Bitesizers Group Chat!

Chats listed below are for KakaoTalk. 

Important:

  • All chats are specifically for Korean related topics  

This includes study advice, questions, grammar, discussions regarding culture, and the language. For any general chats, I encourage you to create your own groups, so please refrain from unrelated discussions as much as possible - this is to avoid spam for other participants.

However, if you want to practice talking in Korean, then any general discussions are considered relevant. Thank you for understanding.

  • Be kind to one and another

Anyone being disrespectful will be removed immediately.

  • Be encouraging and offer support

That’s the whole point of these group chats, so if you have concerns about how unproductive you feel, mention it in chat and hopefully, others can help get you back on track!

  • No swearing  

This isn’t the place for that…

  • Make sure the chat stays focused, clean and polite!

These chat rooms are study groups, so be kind, considerate, and work hard!

  • DO NOT SEND the links to others

It is vital for the security and safety of these chats that you do not publically share the links to the chat groups. You must either receive the links from myself or an admin. If you wish to have others join, refer them to our Tumblr ask box to receive the necessary links! Anyone that is caught sharing the links without permission will be removed from the chat group. Please understand that this is very important and for your own safety!

Admins:

Admins are there to monitor the group chats. Their job includes:

  • Making sure that no one spams the chat with unrelated topics.
  • Keeping an eye out for anyone being disrespectful.
  • Keeping the chat alive with a positive attitude.
  • Being supportive.
  • Available for daily monitoring; to make sure the chat stays focused and clean.
  • Personally staying in contact with me about anything important in chat or concerns they might have.

Admins have kindly volunteered for this job and use their free time to make sure that everyone else is having fun. So for this reason, if any Admin raises concerns in chat about inappropriate behaviour, please show them respect and abide by the in-chat rules. If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact the admins - they are there to make sure the chat group is a fun environment and to make sure you feel comfortable!

Groups:

There are 4 chat rooms; capacity of 200, each for a different level. If additional space is required, new chat groups will be opened accordingly. You can join more than one, you can advance as your level increases and you can leave at any time - no strings attached!

  • Bitesizers: ALL

A group for all levels to interact and chat! General enquiries and encouragement! Study tips and advice. Everyone is encouraged to join this chat for non-Korean related chit chat so that other chat rooms avoid spam! 

  • Bitesizers: BEGINNER

A group for complete beginners to help encourage one and another. This is the chat room for those that want to only converse with others of the same level. Best suited for individuals who are still grasping the basics and want to practice simple grammar or phrases.

  • Bitesizers: BGN/INT

This is a mixed group for beginner and intermediate. Best suited for those with a good foundation of Korean but who don’t quite feel like intermediate. This is the perfect group if you want to be exposed to more complex grammar. Useful for encouragement, practice and interaction with intermediate learners! Intermediate individuals can also discuss things amongst themselves while guiding those at a lower level when possible.

  • Bitesizers: INT/ADV

A group for intermediate and advanced learners for those that want to practice more complex grammar! Advanced individuals are encouraged to help guide those at a lower level when possible.

Join Now!

To join, simply pick your preferred level(s), send me a message NOT on Anon (via Tumblr ask box), and I’ll personally give you the links required to join (I will link to any of the groups). This is just to make sure the chat is more secure! In the event that requests are extremely high, I ask that you please wait until I can hand out further links.

Thank you! Happy chatting! 

Dear No-Mercy Run Players:

Your actions are not comparable to that of real-life serial murderers.

Putting the blame on Chara is not on-par with real-life child abuse.

You are not a bad person for wanting to avoid guilt over playing a video game.

You are not a bad person for playing a video game.

You are safe here.

I do not need to know you personally. We may, and probably do, have vital differences in thought processing, and opinions, but this does not mean you deserve to be tarred, feathered, and put on display,

You are safe here.

This is a peaceful space on its own. When people enter this domain, I can only hope they are here with good intentions, seeking enlightenment or knowledge, references or answers. I cannot deny someone the right to feel as they will, and experience as they have.

You are safe here.

All are invited. All are welcomed with open arms as Human Beings. And when you breach my trust in you, to be a civilized Human, capable of accepting differences in thought and opinion as easily as the color of one’s hair and skin, this place is no longer safe for me.

You are safe here.

I allow you to feel safe, and encourage it even! But please allow me to feel safe as well. This is a place for knowledge, and learning. This is a place of new experiences, intended for good. This is a place for people to seek inspiration.

And you are safe here.

No, you are not a mistake. Do not believe the whispers that occupy your mind at night as your lay your head down and tears stain your cheeks. Can’t you see? You bear the very image of God. It’s His breath in your lungs. You think little of yourself, yet He thought enough of you to leave Heaven and lay His life down. So, please, don’t give up. You are not a burden. You are not a mistake. You do have a purpose. Your life has meaning. It’s all found in Him.
