i finally don't have to go to school every single day

Some Kpop groups in a nutshell
  • <p> <b>Super Junior:</b> old school legends, no one can compare. Loyal af fans, still stan them after Hyukjae's bad eyebrow era and all the scandals. Kings of hosting shows. Literally it's just Heechul holding down the fort and exposing everyone he can while everybody else gets their military service done. #justiceforSungmin #makeSiwonCEOofSM<p/><b>Big Bang:</b> kpop kings, basically carved the way for third generations. Were hella problematic sometimes but tbh who hasn't. G-Dragon could literally sing about crayons and make a music video with TOP while they pee on each other and still top the charts....oh wait, he did. Daesung out here setting the beauty standards for everyone in s. Korea. #getTaeyangashirt #makeSeungriCEOofYG<p/><b>SHINee:</b> kpop princes, but everyone and their mom knows they're kings. It's just 4 proud moms taking care of their sonshine, Lee Taemin. They don't attend variety shows, variety shows attend them. Out here roasting everybody including themselves, and every producer is scared to have them guest tbh. Vocals out of this world, get ready to be blessed. #shineeorpinee #whereisJonghyun'skazoo<p/><b>Infinite:</b> invented synchronized choreography. Hella supportive of each other and will probably jump off a cliff if Woohyun suggested it. Tbh no one knows what's going on in Dongwoo's head, but it's all good bc he's the resident happy virus. Only the members are allowed to pick on their leader, they'll bite your head off if you do. Still one of the most underrated groups, it's insane. #redchilipepperpaste #kingsofsychronization<p/><b>EXO:</b> just a single mom raising her 8 kids after a tragic breakup. There are two types of fans: ot12 China line forever & everyone is gay for each other. Still waiting on Baekhyun to adopt us all. Everyone suffers when EXO isn't promoting. Always fighting something/are angsty in their MV's ??? #lipstickchateau #yixingcomehome<p/><b>BTOB:</b> legit the most extra group ever. Besties with Vixx, Ilhoon was probably a love child between Minhyuk and Hakyeon. A member can fit his whole fist in his mouth, and the other can break a whole watermelon with his head...don't test them. Have the most amazing ballad songs but are always underrated. #Peniel'swalltwerk #stopChangsub<p/><b>VIXX:</b> concept kings, there isn't a single thing they couldn't pull off. We were all baptized by Hakyeon's dancing. Have the best relationship with their fans, even wrote a song about Starlights. Call Ravi if you wanna make a cute diss track about your enemy. Possibly might be the apitome of contradiction, you're gonna have whiplash after every comeback. #whereisLeo'ssolo #KenVi4life<p/><b>BTS:</b> actually are hella cool once you get past the problematic fans. Massive headaches are all you're gonna experience after trying to figure out the meaning of a music video. Buddies who watch porn together, stay together. They go so hard on their choreography ?? Shook. The true definition of "started from the bottom now we're here" #gucciislove #gucciislife<p/><b>Topp Dogg:</b> could probably rule the third generation of kpop if they weren't so underrated. They have nothing to do but go around and kiss men's lips all day. Peppero embasadors. Titty Boyz. Fans are loyal af, and probably have one of the cutest fan names ever. They're each others biggest shippers, probably. #hanjooruinedme #WOW<p/><b>Got7:</b> if you thought btob was bad, you're gonna have a stroke. Dab7. Diversity at its finest. Always needing to be in trend and act hip, just don't let Bambam near the aux cord. Besties with probably every group out there. Stop taking off your shirt literally no one cares ???? No cucumbers. #EEEEEAAAAZZY. #welcometoYoungjae'sclass<p/><b>Monsta X:</b> were so awkward around each other during No.Mercy but are now the best of besties. Everyone wants to know what Changkyun is thinking. Shownu, please drop that screamo album. Someone is always screaming at some point and no one knows why. Hyungwon is on his way to becoming an international meme/runway model. #pepewho? #bringwonhosomenoodles<p/><b>Day6:</b> not the Fandom name we wanted, but it's the one we deserve. It's just jae trying to westernize his 4 meme kids, while also attempting to teach them the meaning of life: Bob. Everyone is shook now that JYP finally knows what to do with them. Tough love with father jae, but he totally doesn't hate the second maknae. #lobsterforjae #wonpildumbasalways<p/><b></b> lmao don't be offended by any of this bc I literally have no life so u have nothing to be offended about<p/></p>
Hogwarts Headcannons
  • Give me Dean, muggleborn that he is, imitating Steve Irwin in Care of Magical Creatures class, much to everyone's confusion except for Harry and Hermione who are. On the ground. Unable to breathe. And refusing to explain why.
  • Give me Harry, demisexual that he is, realizing that the reason he can't stop obsessing over Draco is because Draco is the one who saw - and subsequently disliked - 'Harry', and not The Boy Who Lived. Realizing that Draco was the only one to first talk to him for HIM, in that robe shop, and not his parents or fame (because even Ron and Hermione did that at first). And thus, leading to him randomly starting crying in the middle of lunch and claiming he's doomed, much to everyone's fear.
  • Give me Seamus, pyro that he is, super happy one Christmas when Hermione buys him a book on fire caution, flammable materials, and elements such as magnesium. Thus afterward, the mysterious fires that have always happened are far more safe and controlled.
  • Give me Luna, wonderful airhead that she is, being stared at as, calm as anything, she waltzes right into the Slytherin common room and starts talking to the mermaids like its absolutely normal. A first year drops a book he's staring so hard, because HOW DID SHE KNOW THE PASSWORD. Draco just sighs, gets up, goes over to her, and offers her tea.
  • Give me Draco. Who looks on as Neville offers Harry rhubarb pie that he made himself, as Harry stares forlornly at his Treacle Tart, and makes and annoyed sound. "Dammit Longbottom he hates bittersweets." The Slytherins stare and Pansy just mutters "How do you even know these things. Merlin, help him realize."
  • Give me Parvati, who is being constantly mistaken for her sister by Ron, who panics and screams "IM A LESBIAN" when it gets to be too much.
  • Give me Ron, who stares wide-eyes from a distance whenever he sees Padma from that moment on for a full week, until Padma flips out too and hexes him. Parvati awkwardly wonders why Ron starts getting scared whenever she tries to approach from then on, since she knows Ron doesn't have problems due to that sort of thing from how he handles Harry.
  • Give me the thirty or so of the school's Muggle-raised, who made the mistake of showing their folks howlers, and react accordingly whenever one of the families sends one that is just a recording of Rick Astley, or High School Musical, or spoilers for Doctor Who. And the Wizard-raised just... staring... in fear... watching their savior and multiple other students as they run around screaming and crying in an absolute panic for some reason even though it was a different student that got the weird howler.
  • Give me Harry, whose hair surprises people by being dark red like his mother's when in direct sunlight. And usually at the Weasley den they're inside, but one day Harry joins them outside for a picnic, and Molly is so confused about where Harry went to then has do do a mental tally of her children.
  • Give me George, who in the midst of the final battle, hit Lucius with an Anaticula curse, so that every spell he tries makes a duck instead. And the Death Eaters are just so confused. "Lucius... is that a duck?"
  • Give me the Gryffindor common room. The new first years suggest Monopoly for game night. The entire room goes dead silent. One first year tries to ask what they did wrong. "Never mention that game again," is the only response they get. "But why-" "NEVER TALK ABOUT SIXTH YEAR. WE NEVER TALK ABOUT SIXTH YEAR." Their brave upperclassman Neville yells, trembling. Hermione starts crying. Harry goes into a panic attack. Ron whispers, "There are many reasons we don't talk about sixth year. If The Incident had been the only thing that happened, we would only not talk about The Incident. Many things happened that year. Thus, we do not speak of that year, or of that game."
  • Give me McGonagall, who struggles to control the cat population, because while students are told to have their cats fixed you know not all 100 students that brought cats did so. Her curling up around a litter that lost their mother to illness. Training them to stalk the corridors. Albus had his ways of getting information, and hers is the spy network of cats.
  • Give me muggleborns singing everything from Phantom of the Opera to Katy Perry in the corridors. Singing We Will Rock You to a pureblood who disses them for it. The purebloods thinking the weird songs and their tunes are some kind of Rite of Passage and fleeing whenever a muggleborn student starts singing. Altering song lyrics. "I throw my ferret in the air some-times, singin EEEEEEEYO, this is DRAAAAAACO!"
  • Give me muggleborns that are really confused about the whole quill instead of pens things, throwing transfigured pokeballs in Care of Magical Creatures, the band students bringing kazoos and harmonicas and the wizrd-raised students that are just so confused as to how those things even work, because it must be some sort of air magic, right??
  • Give me muggleborns making entire conversations out of pop culture references specifically to confuse some Slytherin who just called one girl a Mudblood. "These are not the droids you were looking for." "I'm right on top of that now Rose, I promise." -jazz hands-
  • Give me muggleborns with Patronus that are things like Pikachu, velociraptors, the quiet Canadian transfer student with a moose patronus the size of a SMALL HOUSE, the one whose is a angeled-out Castiel, the one whose patronus is the democrat donkey and another the republican elephant and the two, previously best friends, become mortal enemies rivaling the fame of Harry and Draco.
  • Give me muggleborns hugging each other before break, promising to 'call' each other, trading weird codes, how they can't wait to go for 'sushi' or planning that trip together to 'disneyland' where they can go flying?? But no one's allowed magic?? Or flying?? And the wizard-raised think that somehow, shockingly,<i> these children totally new to our world have developed a way to cheat the system?? Muggleborns are badasses!!</i>
  • Give me muggleborns who are fully aware that the anti-tech wards were made when, like, radios barely even existed, much less cellphone towers and microprocessors, so while they can't turn them on inside the stone school walls there's this group that Harry joins constantly that just sit there in silence staring at these tiny things and sometimes randomly laughing hysterically, and every now and then standing and just running all the way across to the other side of the lake all at the same time with no signal whatsoever. The purebloods are <i>terrified</i> of this frequent happening.
  • Give me Harry, Hermione, Dean, and Justin from the D.A, muggleborns they are, doing a movie night every week to help the D.A. relax and bond. They re-start this after the battles, during eighth year, with several other people such as the returned Slytherins joining in. The entire year they play things like Tangled, The Breakfast Club, Brave, Lion King. But then the last four weeks, they announce they don't want to mislead everyone that everything is all fun and rainbows. The last four movies are My Sister's Keeper, The Shining, Marley and Me, and for the last week, a marathon of the entire Jurassic Park series.
  • Give me Hufflepuffs, who secretly are very relieved to be the 'normal' House. Jocks over there, know-it-alls over there, goth wannabees over there, now lets go camp out by the kitchens we're gonna need it to survive the next seven years like this.
  • Give me Ravenclaws who are so done with the riddles when they stumble back at midnight after having fallen asleep in the Library. "What's the truth?" "THE TRUTH IS THAT I WILL SET YOU ON FIRE IF YOU DON'T LET ME IN."
  • Give me the Trio, who use the Marauder's Map to find the most absolutely ridiculous routes to class, knowing every single one of the shortcuts. It's not odd for them to simply appear out of the ceiling. One day the new first years try to follow them, to learn the school better, but it doesn't go so well because then they try to go through a disappearing wall the Trio just did they instead run headfirst into it, and the next time they do behind a tapestry, down a waterside, around some sort of tower, causally past an entire doorless room full of bats, and somehow come out on the complete other side of the castle.
  • Give me Draco whose just completely had it with Harry's staring and confronts him, like they always do, and Harry just blurts out that he likes Draco's new haircut and can he touch his hair, and Draco so shocked he lets him. "Potter stop treating me like a cat I'm evil remember? Bloody hell have you gone daft?!" "But... it's soft..." "I hate you." But he just can't find any anger over this, so there's like no venom whatsoever in it and Harry can't stop giggling.
  • Give me Ginny, who can't stop giggling as Luna confuses the fuck out of an entire crowd with her way of speaking, and who during seventh year could 100% get away with insulting the Death Eaters because of the way she said things. Who after Luna used said tactic to get her out of a Crucio punishment just clung to Luna, shaking, and realizing that she loves Luna so much for this very reason. That there will never be another person like Luna in her life, ever.
  • Give me Harry, who was not really well educated while living at the Dursleys, who couldn't read very well but was wonderful at sneaking around, little tricks like hiding things, and loved music. He taught himself magic tricks, and MERLIN ALMIGHTY THIS 11 YEAR OLD KID HAS MASTERED VANISHING SPELLS, WHAT, HOW, and Percy, uptight prefect he is, just looses it.
  • Give me Ron walking in on Harry talking to some random snake in their dorm room, laughing like the snake said a particularly good joke, tipping his head and smiling as he responds, the python slowly curling up his arm to rest over his shoulder. Ron freezes, stares, and then slowly backs away, closes the door and stands there staring at it for a full half hour in absolute horror.
  • Give me the rest of the D.A. walking into the Room of Requirement and hearing screaming, Dean shrieking that he's going to murder someone, Hermione crying, Justin cursing like a sailor yelling for everyone to stop, and the rest panic and run around the corner and there the four Muggle-raised students are. With some sort of odd device in their hands. Playing Mario Kart.
Loads of people has got exams at the moment. Sorry about that. I hope it’s not too stressful. I would say just try not to think about it as one huge overwhelming thing, where everyone’s looking at you and the time is ticking down and break it down to what you actually got to do, which is answer a few questions. And if you’re prepared and relaxed and you’ve looked at the syllabus and the notes of what might appear - it’s always worth asking a teacher what might be on the exam because they know or they’re going to have an idea. So if you ask that and have a look at what the exam board has said “hey, this might be on the exam”, go for it. But I know how stressful it was. I had a horrible time in exams. I did GCSE graphics and in the mock I got an A Star, which is like the best mark and it’s amazing but then I got really stressed in the main exam and I did a lot worse. I think I got a D or an E, something was bad, something was wrong with it. Anyway, I got to do it again and I got a better mark. But still don’t stress out about it. I don’t know why I just told a story of an exam going bad. I don’t know. Sometimes, I would have looked at what was available on the mark scheme and I’d asked the teacher what is this exam going to be and they’d give you like vague points and more often than not they were on there. But I saw a lot of people tweeting about exams and saying like “what was going on the with CDs?” and stuff like that. Especially in maths exams you’d revise loads of stuff and none of it would be on the paper. Mine was just full of triangles, my GCSE maths was. Every single question was a giant triangle. Anyway, I hope that helped slightly. “What GCSEs did you do?” I did graphics, I did German, I did geography… religious education. We had to do religious education actually. That was one that they forced upon us but I was quite good at that. I was good at the ones, which involved essays and writing and I could just be a bit like “here’s a point, and here’s somebody else’s point.” I was a bit worse at maths. Maths was the hardest one. “I’m already out of school” … Congratulations, I love that feeling when you just finished and did the final day. Our last week was always just watching The Simpsons. I don't know like what educational value The Simpsons had but it was just a week watching Simpsons and then school would be over.

Quotes from Phil (2/?)

While so many of us are dealing with exams, have some advice from Phil and be inspired by his academic achievements. 

anonymous asked:

I'm going to go to high school next year and I don't want to end up like 7th and 8th grade year right now. And I mean by being extremely last minute and messy. Do you have any tips for High School? Thanks :)

Hi! Well it sounds like you have the perfect premises - a fresh start with new teachers (probably?) and it seems like you’re willing to change something! I’ll try my best to give you some quality advice, but if anyone has tips they want to add, please feel free to do so!

1. Not Being Last-Minute

In other words, beating procrastination. I’m not really the best to ask since I don’t usually procrastinate, but here are some great masterposts on the subject: 

Generally, my number one tip would be to just start. Even if it’s five minutes – at least you did something! And five minutes easily turn into 40 because once you’ve started, things get easier as the task isn’t some huge abstract and intimidating concept, but just one page of words in your textbook. 

If by “last minute” you mean “late to class”: Set your alarm earlier and try to stick to that routine every day. Make sure you have enough time in the mornings for breakfast, getting dressed, and everything you need to do without being in a rush. If possible, take an earlier bus/train or leave ten minutes earlier if you walk. Pretend your lesson doesn’t start at eight (or whenever it does), but a quarter of an hour earlier. If you’re ten minutes late then, you’ll still be five minutes early.  

2. Stop Being Messy

  1. Organisation: 
    1. get a good calendar and bring yourself to actually use it!! Write down assignments, deadlines, to-do’s and everything you need. Bullet-journals are also an option, but they usually cost more time and can lure you into procrastination very easily. Find out what works best for you! 
    2. Get folders/binders for every class, if you want to in different colours, in which you put every single worksheet. Every. Single. One. If you frequently find yourself saying “this worksheet isn’t hole-punched so I can’t put it in my folder, I’ll do it when I get home” (but you never actually do it and it ends up crumpled up somewhere), you might want to look into portable hole punches. 
    3. Pack your bag the night before with all textbooks and folders you need the next day. Always bring pens/pencils, water, and notebooks/paper for notes. Also keep in mind you may need special equipment for P.E., arts, and maths. 
    4. Always do your homework. 
  2. Notes: 
    1. Your notes don’t have to be super Aesthetic™, but they should meet two criteria: One, they should exist, and two, they should be legible so you can actually study with them. 
    2. To make them exist, always have paper and a pen in front of you in class. Don’t listen to the voice in your head telling you “You don’t need to write that down, you’ll remember it!”. Chances are, when you’re in exam stress, you won’t remember it. 
    3. Write down whatever your teacher writes on the blackboard, and always correct mistakes you made in your homework (don’t erase the mistake, just write the correct solution in the margins so you’ll remember where exactly you went wrong). 
    4. Ask. Questions. Studying with two pages full of notes about a topic you don’t understand isn’t easy. 
    5. To make them legible, you should use a good pen that doesn’t smudge or hurt your hand after five minutes. You don’t have to rewrite your notes unless you feel like it helps you with your studying. 
    6. You can do basic colour-coding without rewriting your notes by using highlighters or fineliners to underline keywords in class. 
    7. Put the date on your notes. Having things in chronological order in your folder makes revision easier, usually. 

By the way: I know from personal experience that being a good student in grades 7 to 10 is often looked down upon by classmates who think that being lazy is cool, for some reason. If that’s the case at your school, don’t listen to them. You’ll be the one with amazing grades and a good education in the end! 

I hope this helped! Have a nice Monday, and good luck in high school! :)

After Kai whisks Riley away from Lucas and Maya, he leads her out to the courtyard where they first met that morning. The boy sits himself on an empty table top and rests his feet on the bench seat attached. Riley quietly sits herself adjacent to him at the end of the seat. 

“Back to the scene of the crime..” Riley lets out a nervous giggle. 

“Again I stress, that was not me.” Kai crinkles his nose in disgust at himself. 

“And bursting through doors crying like a weirdo isn’t me either.” Riley tries to make light of it even though she was actually embarrassed. “May I ask why you were out here?” 

“Well considering I already know why you were upset I suppose it’s only fair I share my truth.” Kai sighs.

anonymous asked:

I don't know if anyone has asked this yet, but how would the members of the RFA [+ V and Saeran?] react to the male!MC trying to off himself or, at the very least, purposely inflicting pain on himself? Apologizes if this is way too sensitive to be talked about on here; I've just been daydreaming a bit and was curious about how you'd interpret their reactions.

Hey anon! By “off himself” I’m assuming you mean suicide? This is, of course, a very sensitive topic. I have an urge to make it though, I have a feeling it will be comforting to a lot of people since it shows how much the RFA cares about you (the MC!). I hope you enjoy. This will include suicide themes. Please refrain from reading if it is uncomfortable for you. If you or someone else needs help, please call this number:  1-800-273-8255 . Thank you!


Yoosung:
♥ He would be coming home one day from school, ready for your happy greeting and your cuddles, but he comes home to something different.
♥ When you’re not there at the door to kiss him hello, he gets concerned, but he knows you must be here. Maybe it’s a game of hide and seek? He smiles and starts to look for you.
♥ “Honey? Where are you? I’ll be sure to find you!”
♥ When he hears your muffled sobs as he approaches the closed bathroom door, his heart drops. He tries to open the door but to no avail, it’s locked. He starts to cry and smash on the door. He’s screaming at you to open the door.
♥ “Open the door, my love! What’s wrong?!”
♥ When you finally unlock the door, Yoosung bursts in. He nearly vomits when he sees a half empty bottle of pills in your hand. He is sobbing and runs to grab you. He looks in your eyes to see that they’re still vibrant and clear. You’re still here.
♥ He holds you and tells you he loves you, that you’re his blessing, and that you’re the reason why he strives to get through college. He can’t breathe when he calls the hospital. His throat is burning from all the screaming.
♥ During your recovery in the hospital, Yoosung visits every single day and brings you a teddy bear and flower. He’s constantly expressing his appreciation for you from now on. He cannot lose you.

Zen:
♦ Zen would get home from practice earlier than usual one day and he’s so excited about it! He gets to gain your affection and compliments one hour earlier than usual!!
♦ He runs indoors and calls for you in a sing-song voice. He looks around for you and when he can’t find you anywhere, he gets a little spooked. Where are you?
♦ “Chagiyaaaa~ Where are you?”
♦ Then, he finally hears some sound to indicate that you’re here. The bath water is running. Why are you taking a bath this early in the day? Maybe you want him to join you? ;)
♦ He opens the bathroom door which is unlocked to his surprise. His cheeky smile soon turns to a face of sheer terror as he sees the bathwater run red.
“Zen?! You’re here much earlier than I thought you’d be, what are you doing here?!”
  “I came home early. What are you doing to yourself?”

♦ Small incisions are spread across your arms that are oozing red fluid. Zen grabs your arms and washes the blood off. He grabs the razor in your hand and flushes it down the toilet. He doesn’t care how much you’re screaming for him to not discard the razor, he does it anyway cause he cares for you that much.
♦ After he bandages your wounds, he calls for a therapist/doctor to help you furthermore. During your recovery, Zen kisses each and every scar on your body. He loves you so much and he tells you that every single day.

Alright, so, if you’ve ever wondered what happens after you send your resume off to a potential employer, here’s what I can tell you. But keep in mind, this is just based on my own experiences. Other people probably do things differently.

Here’s the basics. Whatever job you’re applying for, you should know you’re not the only person applying. Probably a lot of people are. That means two things: 1. They’re probably skimming. 2. You have no idea what might make you stand out.

Every time I’ve ever helped hire for a job, there were loads of qualified applicants. Which means the first thing you do is try to find your no’s, the people you can weed out. For me, I ask, do I want to interview this person. The answer choices are yes, no, and maybe. 

On that note, make sure you always, always follow the instructions on the job posting. If you don’t, there’s a decent chance you’ll get tossed in a no pile. If they ask for a resume and a cover letter, send both. If they ask for salary requirements, send them. Don’t give them a reason to rule you out right off the bat. 

Similarly, proofread. If they’re skimming, and one of the three things they notice is a mistake, that doesn’t bode well for you. At an absolute minimum, make sure you haven’t done something particularly silly, like send them a letter with the wrong company name in the title, or the wrong job referenced, or notes to yourself about things you still need to add. You’d be surprised how often this happens.

When it comes to resumes, formatting matters. But not like you think. Don’t get bogged down on how pretty the style is. They aren’t going to. But they’ll probably notice if your columns are all janky. Basically, don’t send them something that looks half-assed, because no one wants a half-assed employee. But beyond that, don’t kill yourself over the style. I’ve seen a lot of resumes. I’ve never seen two that looked the same. There’s no magical right way to do it. And it’s the content that matters the most.

So, content. I think everyone looks at this stuff differently. I’ve worked at places that used rubrics, to try to guide people, and get everyone on the same page. I’ve had bosses who go straight to the work history. If they don’t like what they see, they’re not going to bother with any of the rest of it. Personally, I skim the cover letter first, and then look at the work history, to see how it connects. That’s often an issue. If you talk about something in your cover letter, I should be able to find that experience on your resume. If your cover letter mentions that you have a long history working with kids, but your resume doesn’t include a single thing related to working with kids, I’m going to assume “long history working with kids” = “has a sibling” and move on. 

The best resume I saw (in my opinion) had skills and qualifications up top, and used it well. If you’re going to do that, make sure (again, imo) there’s a straight line connecting it to your job history and your cover letter. If you’re going to list “self-motivated” as an attribute, make sure that’s demonstrated in you work history. Talk about how you, as a freelance artist, have to seek out those commissions, set your own hours, and meet those deadlines, and you’re the only person holding yourself accountable. If you’re going to list “team-player” as a qualification, talk about being on the volleyball team, and recognizing that you succeed and fail as a unit, that the team is bigger than any individual player (I don’t know that it’s the norm to list sports on a resume, but certainly if you don’t have any work history, or it’s pretty slim, you should have at it. I had a boss who loved hiring team-sport athletes, specifically because he thought they understood the value of teamwork.).Highlights in the resume, depth in the cover letter. That’s what I liked, anyway. Also, if there’s no depth, it just sounds like buzzword bingo. It’s good to have initiative, to be a hardworker, and to be a team player. But no one is going to believe you unless you can actually demonstrate it. 

Which reminds me, take some time to think about the things you’ve done in your life that have actually changed you, given you skills, made you a better, or more productive, or more capable person. One of the most formative experiences in my life was an epic failure, but I learned how to handle stress, how to prioritize an eight hour day with twelve hours of work in it. I can apply that to any situation. So whatever it is that has made you you, don’t be afraid to use that. You have no idea what is going to stand out to a potential employer. You may think there’s nothing much to talk about when it comes to being a freelance artist, or volleyball player, or whatever, but I see a wealth of positive attributes. 

But beyond that, knowing the job I was hiring for, I would have been all over a freelance artist, or someone who was a writer, because it doesn’t pay a ton, but there’s a lot of down time. So, someone super qualified with lots of experience would probably leave fairly quickly in search of higher pay, but someone who’d really benefit from getting paid to sit at a desk and answer a phone every half hour or so with nothing else do, someone who’d love to fill all that down time with their own projects, now they might stay a long time. That might be a great symbiotic relationship. A guaranteed salary and a chance to work on commissions  or a novel, or whatever while at work is a great deal, for the right person.  

My point is, don’t count yourself out before you’ve even tried, I once got a job because one of the schools listed on my resume was in Ireland, and the person I handed it to thought that was cool. I walked in off the street, handed them my resume, chatted for ten minutes, had an interview the next week, and a job the day after. 

Which leads me to my last piece of advice. When you’re applying for jobs, think shotgun, not sniper rifle. Apply to so many things you don’t even have the option to take it personally if you don’t get called back, because you don’t even remember you applied there. Applying for one job can talk a long time. But every one after that is a steal. Spend some time writing a good resume and a good cover letter that could be tailored just slightly to apply to most jobs. Proofread, read them aloud you yourself, have people you trust read them. Save them. Then, for every job posting you see, save as CoverLetter2017.01.17 (or whatever system you want to use). Tailor the job title, etc. If there are particular professions you want to work in, create specific cover letters and resumes (i.e. if you want to work at a preschool, have one that highlights your experience working at the YMCA, but if you want to work at a dental clinic, have one that highlights office experience; if you’re applying in multiple fields, have multiple tailored resumes.).

I’ve mostly worked general sorts of jobs, that most people can probably do. I suspect if you’re chemical engineer, it’s probably a very different deal. But if you’re just like, damn I really need a job so I can pay my rent, all of that word vomit up there is the best I can offer you by way of advice. 

Oh, and also, get an e-mail address that looks professional. john.smith@gmail.com and mrwizard227@gmail.com create two very different impressions. (Note: I made those up. Apologies to anyone who happens to have those e-mail address. No offense was intended.)

If anyone has any questions, feel free to shoot them over. I can’t promise I’ll have a good answer, but I promise to try. 

*Isaac Lahey* Power Of Mates

Isaac Lahey X Girl

Request: Challenge

Plot: Mates bring out the softer and more vulnerable side or each other. That’s was main character does to the murderous alpha Isaac.

Word Count: 2,039

A/N: This imagine, or what ever it is. I’m still knew to writing and Tumblr. Is for the What If writing challenge made by @sdavid09. My prompt is What if Isaac was the leader of his own pack? God bless her soul because she had to do a little research for me.



Siting comfortably on my home’s couch.  Silence wrapped around the room like a blanket in the McCall house hold. The pack meeting in slow process, but still continuing.

Glancing at Scott’s feet as he paced through the living room impatiently. Chewing lightly on his finger nails eagerly, you could almost see the concentrated thoughts write over his head in big bold letters. He’ s buried deep inside his chaotic mind.

Lydia and Stiles sitting side by side leaning into each other closely. Whispering their thoughts away together, I secretly smiled to myself. seeing in their eyes they adored one another. Shipping them in the dark was no shame. Liam sat on the couch across from me, fiddle with his thumbs violently. orbs wide as he bit his lip, rapidly thinking. Tapping his foot loudly on the floor sounding like a harsh slap.Everyone else engaged into something, blocking an ounce of the sound out. Malia was placed beside the pack’s pup, playing a game with a determined facial expression. The light sounds of swish, wee, and woo told me she was compelled by the angry birds game.

The fast movement of Liam interrupted my calmed down mind. Jumping up from the love seat, his fiddling was no longer keeping him chained down. “ I can’t wait anymore, you called a pack meeting. What’s going on?” He rambled out like it’ s been caged down for as long as he remembered. He breathed out and relaxed before taking a seat back down.

Scott stopped in his tracks, Lydia and Stiles stopped the flow of their words, Malia letting her phone drop into her lap. Most of the attention growing on the obnoxious puppy, Mine stayed on the alpha. Watching his every move, his eyes carefully becoming red and slowly turning back to a soft brown.  

You’re right,” Scott Started, running his hand from the base of his neck then through his hair. “There is another pack in town.” He stated gently , letting us take in the new information we’ve been waiting for.

My heart skipped a single beat, making me think of my original pack. The one I left, the one that used to torture and brutally abuse humans. Just for the joy of watching them suffer. I couldn’t stand there and hear human’s desperate cries for help. it wasn’t who I was or ever will be, I ran from my brother, my alpha, and my pack.

Scott has said this a million times before, but my mind still thought it was them. If it was them, would they be back for me? That was a stupid question because deep down I new he would be here for me. It scared my heart till the last minute I knew for sure it wasn’t his pack.

Never looking back was the best choice I’ve made. Scott and Stiles found me and hesitantly took me in under their wings. It’s wasn’t long before Melissa started to take care of me like her own. I will forever be grateful for her pure heart.

“I would of called you guys in sooner, but I don’t know what they’re here for. I wanted to know before I told you anything. Their scents are closer towards the preserve, they’re slowly spreading towards the city. “  Scott informed us,

“Why don’t we go see if they’re a threat at least.’ Malia said shrugging.

“I don’t know how many there are.”

My heart clenched harder, my old pack had at least thirty  members. He wouldn’t risk having every single strong werewolf member out there. Giving a chance  for the weaker ones to get attacked . I couldn’t help,  but be sure it was them.

“There shouldn’t be anymore than ten.” I spoke up getting everyone’s attention. Scott’s eyebrows furrowed slightly at me.

“How would you know? You didn’t know this pack exist until three minutes ago.” Stiles spat out at me sending me a harsh glare. In the past month he’s been giving me the darker side of him. I couldn’t figure the real reason why, it was almost like a press of a button.

“I have a feel this is Isaac’s pack.” I stated confidently as a rush of cold washed over my body.

“who is Isaac?” Lydia asked with curiosity colored in her eyes.

“My previous Alpha.”


Tight clothing making me feel more comfortable than I should be in them. Light jeans reaching under my belly button, accompanied by a blue floral shirt. The pair making my body curve a little more than it usual is.

I picked at my nails letting them talk with a small click. What if Isaac is here for me? Wanting for me to be the alpha female by his side, I only got the title and not the power that was suppose to come along with it. I was terrified of him, that being the reason I ran and hide for as long as I can.

“Stop it before you explode for paranoia.”  Lydia spoke over her car radio, she pulled the stirring wheel to the left as she turned into the school parking lot. My hands dropped to my lap forcing a real smile to my lips. “You’re right Lyds, I need to breath a little and stop thinking about him.” My tone more light and fluffy as we got out of her blue Toyota.

Trying to convince myself I was over thinking this I walked with Lydia towards the school with small conversation. The tiny tingle at the deep bottom of my heart told me otherwise.


More than half way through the day, the worried thoughts of Isaac drifted away into a rocky shore. Now my mind was focused on the small urge to pee. Not wanting to interrupt the whole class I started tapping my foot repeatedly on the floor quietly.

I’ve done that for awhile before Stiles who was sitting beside me on the left, nudged me harshly in the rib. Causing me to yelp out in pain, Everyone in the class turned their head towards me. The teacher lifting his eyebrows at me, I gulped preparing myself to talk.

“May I be excused?” I squeaked out feeling the sting in my ribs spread, Stiles is human, but Jesus can he jab hard. Mr. Allister nodded his head stiffly before continuing his lesson. I turned my head at Stiles shooting him a death glare, “Watch it Stilinski.” I growled out, he shrugged “Sorry omega, didn’t realize you were that weak.” His tone dark and husky.

‘What did I ever do to you?” asked sounding disparate and breathless.  

“Not notice me.” He said gently  right before turning his head back to the lesson, Not giving me a chance to reply to him. I furrowed my eyebrows as I finally made it out of the class room. What did he even mean by that?

Was Stiles secretly interested in me and I didn’t happen to see it? Don't get me wrong he’s cute and dorky, but He’s always been pining for Lydia, my now best friend. He’ s in a relationship with her, why would he hold a grudge?

The hallways filled with painful silence, a light ringing in my ears making me turn my head. Looking for the sound then realize that the sound was in my head.  my footsteps and the vague murmurs from the closed classroom doors was the only sound heard.

Now spotting the light pink sign with the person on the front wearing a dress, girls reading underneath her. I hurried my pace feeling the urge to pee build like a sand castle, fast and unpleasant. stretching out towards the metal handle and almost feeling the coldness, but not quite there before my body was whisked fast.

my heart racing with speed virtually missing several beats. My back slamming into the hallway wall forced by another being, my eyes locking in dark blue eyes. No matter how long I haven’t seen those eyes, I will never forget who they belonged to..

My murderous mate.

I whimpered under his body, shocked that I didn’t catch his intoxicating scent and still couldn’t. His touch burning my skin forcing sparks to erupt through out my whole body.  his right hand capturing both my hands as the other one rested on the wall, trapping me either way.

A playful smirk appeared on his face feeling me struggle under his grip, but falling badly. “Try as you will, but I’m never letting you leave again.” His husky and thick tone sent scared tingles to my spine.

“You have no control over me.” I spat harshly at him, hiding the terrified feeling settling in my stomach. Feeling the power beginning to run natural in my veins from the presence of him. Our bond connecting easily, souls happier together after being away from one another for a long amount of time. No longer feeling terrified of him as I flicked my claws and ripped my wrists from his hands.

He backed away a little with wide eyes slightly surprised by my action. In the presence of your mate you got more stronger, more powerful. The pair becoming more dangerous than another pack. Alpha soul mates being unstoppable, and it’ s a huge risk to the human kind.

“I finally found you, my Luna, Don’t think for a minute I’d let you go.” He spoke letting me step away from him, stunned he didn’t force me back into the wall again. Understanding my power was equal with his for the first time.

“Why would I come back to your pack? Watch humans get harmed and killed when you could be saving their lives.”

“If you said anything about it I’d stop, for you.” he spoke trying to reach for me.

“I did do that, you slashed my cheek and told me never to do it again. You were the one in control and you didn’t let me forget it.” I chocked out feeling my throat tighten.

“I loved you, love you. I didn’t everything for you.” it physically hurt to heard him say that, he was too blind.

“No! Isaac you were too blinded by your blood thirst for power you didn’t realize you were hurting me. That’s the reason I left.” I spoke harshly amazed no one came into the hall to see what was going on. I turned and stormed down the hall, hearing him following me.

“I love you!” he hollered.

I immediately stopped in my tracks, closing my eyes and sighing. Those were the words I was scared he’d say, It made them more believable that he sounded desperate for me to stay. his words were true and I hated it.

“I looked for you the whole time you were gone, Without you I felt my soul grow weak and I became feared by the pack.” 

“That’s who you are.” My breath hitched as I spoke.

“It hurts even more when you say it.” He mumbled, but to me it was clear as if he whispered in my ear.

“But I can’t help that my heart longs for you.” I said turning back around facing him. his dark shade of blue eyes transforming into a lighter shade. he’s powerful. I just couldn’t ignore his vulnerable side. It was long before a smirked plastered on his lips.

“That’ my Luna.” He power walked towards me, grabbing behind my neck pulled me towards his lips, like mine were the last drop of water. Our lips moving Harshly in sync, my hands slowly traveling up his arms as his moved down to my hips. Giving them a quick squeeze before pulling me closer practically pulling us to one.

The ringing of the bell was the open gate, letting students flood through the halls. We pulled away from each other letting air back into our lungs. “From this moment on everything is about to change.” Isaac spoke, I smiled. “Good.” feeling happy, a feeling I’ve never real felt till now.

At the last second my eyes landed on Stiles, Leaning against a few lockers. His body tense as his face held disappointment and right now I could care less. I have my mate and I couldn’t think of anything better.

Think Outside the Lovesquare Day 4: Friendly Rivalry

Neither of them could remember exactly what Kim said. In fact, by this point, it didn’t really matter. He’d issued a challenge, and normally Chloe couldn’t possibly care less about Kim and his stupid dares, but this time, Alix had informed Chloe, with the most smug grin on her face, that this contest wasn’t for Chloe.

As if Chloe couldn’t do it.

As if Chloe couldn’t do anything she set her mind to.

Chloe remembered filing her nails and commenting, “If you can do it, I’m sure I could do it better.”

“That’s big talk.” Alix stepped closer, hands on her hips as she stared Chloe down. “I bet you’ll quit in a day.”

Chloe set the file down and glared up at her. “I bet I’ll be better than you in two weeks.”

“Fine. If you lose, you have to let Alya pick your outfits for a week.”

A flash of anger lit in her eyes, and Chloe sat up straighter. “And if you lose, you have to write a speech about how great I am for the whole class.”

“Fine.” Alix slammed her hands down on Chloe’s desk, but Chloe didn’t even flinch. “Daddy’s money can’t buy you talent, you know.”

Hi! Your writing is, as usual, absolutely amazing and you post so much and you're absolutely amazing for it! If it's not too much to ask, could you do something where Bokuto, Nishinoya, Kenma and Tendou are reassuring their s/o who is very self conscious about their own appearance and have little confidence? It can be headcanons or scenarios I don't mind, whichever you prefer, dear~ thanks a bunch!!

I’ve come to discover through these that headcanons are, like, the best thing to do ever. Lol, but this was cute, Anon!

Hope you enjoy!

P.s. I just freaking figured out that other people add their own tags when they reblog my stuff and I literally spent about an hour and a half going through my notifications to see what those tags were. I love them. And I don’t know whether to be embarrassed by how much time I spent on it considering I have so many finals to work on! LOL.


Bokuto Koutarou

  • While this boy explodes with confidence, he does know what it’s like to fall into pits of insecurity, so he’d very much make sure to approach the situation very carefully.
  • He’d tell them the way they were feeling was valid - in the sense that society puts these insecurities on everyone - but that they should know that they’re better than anything society can produce.
    • And he’d be sure to tell them everything he loves that society perhaps wouldn’t - the birthmark on their cheek, their head to toe freckles, the beautiful dark kinks in their hair, their curvy figure that he looooves cuddling. And boy won’t stop until he names everything he loves: EVERYTHING.
  • They’ll probably laugh, tell him that they get it and that he has to say that because he’s dating them. Oh no, mistake.
  • It goes from 0 to 100 real fast, because he’s not finished.
    • Their laugh - like, the one where there is no control, where they’re crying and possibly snorting - is his favorite sound, their ability to take on the world so bravely, the way they love so fully, not holding anything back. There is so much about them that is so unique and grand and it kills him that they would even consider he didn’t mean every single word of it.
  • Cuddles, snuggles, and delicate kisses are to be expected afterward. And you better believe he’s spend HOURS just admiring every single part of their body - he’ll kiss every freckle, even the ones you didn’t know you had! - before he takes his time making love to the soul he cherishes to dearly.

Nishinoya Yuu

  • I actually think insecurity is something that might be a little hard for Noya to grasp right away. This kid has almost never been self-conscious about anything, it’s a very foreign concept to him, so catching on to the fact that something is wrong might take some time.
  • And he probably wouldn’t realize how much he’s not helping the situation when they come to him with these insecurities and he brushes them off initially with a, “you shouldn’t feel that way.”
  • That would start the trend of them just keeping things to themselves, because if he’s just gonna blow it off then what’s the point in telling him?
    • I can see it getting kinda bad. They’re fighting for no reason now and they finally snap one day saying how he can just go date someone who’s perfect then.
    • Oh. That’s when it hits him square across the face. And boy, does he feel like the worst boyfriend in the world.
  • From that moment on, this precious bean would try his best to understand what they were going through and be more aware of what they need from him when those moments come on. And he’s a quick learner, taking initiative in snuggle time and providing them with whatever will make them feel loved and wanted - words, physical contact, acts of service - they name it and he’ll do it because he never wants them for feel that way ever again.

Kozume Kenma

  • Really, just really, this kid would know that they’re insecure before they can even figure it out themselves. He had spent so much of his life trying to hide from the insecurities he faced while in middle school, there’s just no way that he wouldn’t see it as clear as day within his significant other.
  • But he wouldn’t bring it up directly, he’d wait for them to come to him when they really needed him. He’d watch them closely though, the last thing he’d want is for them to get too far deep into their own negative thoughts.
    • He’d probably be so wrapped up with making sure they were okay that he would just leave his PSP at home. Everyone is concerned for Kenma’s health - even them - but there are more important things to worry about.
  • Despite his subtle efforts to keep them from falling back into their insecurities, it’s bound to happen - sometimes you just in those moods, ya know? - and they’re breaking down in the middle of their dinner or homework or something just as random.
    • The first time in happened, Kenma panicked. He didn’t know how to handle such an outburst of intense emotion, but he figured it out slowly - and with a LITTLE help from Kuroo?
  • Now it’s just second nature, this boy will let it happen - because you can’t stop the inevitable - and gather up as many blankets he can find to wrap around the both of them where they’re stay burrowed for the rest of the night with Kenma whispered small reassurances and reasons why he loves them that are only heard by them and their surrounding covers.

Tendou Satori

  • I think that with Tendou he might actually be a little oblivious. The kids called ‘Guess Monster’, there are some things that he’s aware of and some that he misses and I feel like this is one of them.
    • Maybe it has something to do with his own past? Like, he knows what it’s like to be self-conscious about who he is and that he holds his significant other up so high that they could never feel that way because they’re amazing, there’s no one out there like them.
  • So when it does end up coming up that their self-conscious of their appearance he is totally floored. Because how can they say that? Don’t they know and see how pretty, no beautiful, no GORGEOUS they are?
  • For a couple days he’s not exactly sure what to do. He knew suggesting besting their enemies as he did when he was younger is not the way to go when the enemy is your own brain, right? But despite not knowing exactly what to do, he never left their side, choosing to console them with his presence at the very least.
    • Tons of forehead kisses and verbalization of his love is how they spend that time. He may not know exactly how to help them gain confidence in themselves, but he can give them all his love - which ends up being one of the main contributing factors to their attitude towards themselves becoming better.
  • Omg, I can just see this tol bean spending a morning in bed with his significant other just covering their face with kisses, smile wide, and every time they try to protest against something he says he just lays another kiss on their lips. Sweet thing will stop them with all his love from thinking less of themselves!

namjin headcanon for secret sat: consider seokjin feeling down one day bc school is hard and weird and he's a freshman in high school but already he's being told to just focus on grades and nothing else and when he's walking home he passes by this park and suddenly hears a whole bunch of rapping dissing the school system and he looks to see what's going on and there's Namjoon, still in middle school but with a crazy mohawk and hands in the air as he verbally rips apart an imaginary person (1)

and seokjin is just awed while he watches this kid go in an empty park. before he knows it he’s right behind him and when namjoon stops he automatically starts clapping, half scaring the poor guy to death, who never had any idea anyone could hear him at all. and then jin is all up in his face, eyes sparkling, telling namjoon how he’s awesome and that was such a cool rap and how he totally relates to it and namjoon is s o talented to be able to do that and poor namjoon just turns bright red (2)

bc he’s never rapped in front of anyone before or shown them the stuff he’s done but here’s a really cute guy talking about namjoon like he’s actually something special bc of his raps and even saying he LOVED it and namjoon is just really?? flustered?? and afterwards they sit at the park together ralking and joonie talks about his rapping and why he does it and his love for music and jin just soaks it all up and talks about his own tastes in music amd they talk so long it becomes hella dark (3)

so jin is like omg!! you’re still a kid!!! so he sends him home after exchanging contacts and then when jin gets home and hits the bed he gets a text from joon like “got home safely, what about hyung?” and he grins and starts texting back and then they ended up falling asleep messaging each other bc this is basically their first real friendship and over the years jin is namjoon’s #1 fan and supporter even when ppl tell him he should stop rapping and just focus on his grades instead (4)

jin is just always there telling him he can do it and jin believes in him and somewhere along the line joonie falls for this kind and dorky and energetic hyung of his who’s never once given up on namjoon even though he’s obsessed with rap/music or thought namjoon should change in any way and so when jin struggles in school joonie learns the subjects he struggles in to be able to help him and constantly praises seokjin when he can so he knows he’s really absolutely amazing no matter what (5)

and namjoon always buys jin’s fav snacks or new ones he wanted to try out whenever he feels down and goes to the same highschool as him as a surprise, shocking jin even more when he skips another grade to be in the same class as jin after jin tells him he wishes he never had to go to school bc its horrible and they’re just always together, always seokjin and namjoon and nothing else to everybody who knows about them. namjoon makes a cd and sends it to companies to see if anyone will take him (6)

and jin is telling him “they will, they will” but namjoon doesm’t believe him and they’re in their last year of highschool when namjoon hears back from someone and gets a record deal and finally, finally makes his dream come true and becomes a rapper like he’s always wanted to be. the first song he raps is that one from all those years ago in that park, edited and tweaked just a little bit, and he dedicates it to jin. he saves up the money, goes to the first flower he sees and buys a HUGE (7)

bouquet of flowers and heads straight to seokjin’s dorm that he just moved into all alone since namjoon isn’t going to college, drops to his knees right there and tells seokjin he doesn’t have the money or stability or even worth to propose to him right now and ask him to marry him, screw the law, but he will one day and right now he just wants to know if jin will give him the chance to be his boyfriend and jin just laughs and kisses him right there in the dorm hallway with everybody there (8??)

and namjoon becomes famous and makes money and gets them an apartment and jin finishes college and they don’t have legal papers saying they’re married but they’ve got rings and the memories and love to say it for them and that’s all they need. joon dedicates every album to jin and jin is his number one fan always, to the point where not a single one of namjoon’s fans doesn’t know who jin is. (sorry i took so long iT GOT AWAY FROM ME AKSKFK) but like. consider. (9??? who knows anymore sjdkg)

/weeps in the corner/ you.. basically….. wrote a short namjin fic….. /nasty sobbing/

FOR REAL DUDE I’M SO HAPPY THIS GO AWAY FROM YOU?? i love it so much it’s just??? WOW thank you

never gonna be over it…….. i wanna read a full fic

it’s a sleepover

need to rant plz don't mind me I'm not looking for discussion just ranting

I swear this series will never stop haunting and destroying me….

So the last mother fucking episode of Na***o (I censor it for my own sake) is Hin**a’s wedding…again…why..did she not get an entire MOVIE for her and her selfish love??? Now the last episode is dedicated to her god for saken wedding…
That’s not even the worst part… I did this mistake of scrolling the tag and immediately starting crying

Sakura.. the fictional character who got me through some of my hardest school days. She inspired me so much and it kills me to this day seeing what’s become of her and this series I once loved.

Every single time I think she can’t be hurt anymore, that there’s nothing more they can do to destroy her..
I’m proven wrong every time! They show her watching all the happy couples while she is completely alone…& the only “comfort” she gets is a letter from Sasuke with the word congratulations on it..meant for N & H….. that’s what she blushes and smiles at…that’s the final scene she receives in this series.
How can anyone human being who watched/read this series from the beginning be truly ok with this scene and just overall ending… it’s pure evil and beyond cruel… Sakura the main heroine in the series, who has overcome so much and basically been sad since the beginning…she didn’t get to have a happy ending (call it what u will guys that’s no happy ending and that’s coming from someone who loved Sasuskau at a time) it’s miserable and it hurts me.

To think Hin**a the side character who really never had much to offer to the series besides holding an immense love/obsession for Nar**o got an amazingly happy ending meanwhile Sakura the actual heroine whose character actually impacted the series in many fucking ways is left with the worst ending I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t wish this ending on any character.
and we all know it doesn’t get better because she then has a child and is left to raise it alone while everyone else is a couple raising there children..it’s just like the creators truly despise Sakura and want to make her suffer in any way possible..& I know it’s just goddamn fiction and I’m insane for caring so much but it really does hurt me deeply. I loved this character so much she really was and sadly still is important to me so whenever I see how miserably she is treated and continues to be..it just hurts…

it hurts a lot and I wish I can wake up one day and not give a fuck…

okay end of rant..

  • Kuroko: I'm up for that.
  • Furihata: Sei-kun wouldn't be happy about that.
  • Himuro: Why is that?
  • Furihata: He doesn't want to lessen our time together, though.
  • Himuro: You are far too spoiled. Atsushi would surely like this idea, anyway.
  • Everyone: Same goes to you, though.

((this post could go on forever, but here’s some of he best ones 😌 hope you have a better day, my dear! 💕))

Don't do unauthorized surgeries on your patients and don't treat your employees like sh*t - it will cost you.

My mom has been a nurse for almost a decade now. 8 of those years she worked at the same hospital on one of the most busy floors to work on until she finally had enough of the piss-poor management. Before she left, though, she exacted an amazing feat of revenge that got the hospital into a LOT of trouble.

As I said, Mom worked on what was probably the busiest floor in the whole hospital. This particular floor is severely understaffed and many times there were only three or four nurses working, each one having to care for 10 or 11 patients each (sometimes even more). Lots of times it would be pretty much impossible to get everything done in a 12-hour shift when you have to pass meds, tend to, and chart for that many patients.

My mom is a GREAT nurse. She is extremely smart, a hard worker, and she really does love her job. Usually she would be the first nurse to get done with all of her work and then help other nurses with their workload so everyone could leave on time. Her co-workers there loved her like no one’s business. This kind of work ethic landed her a position as a charge nurse.

As a charge nurse, it was her job to see to it that all (or most) of the paperwork is done properly and faxed, that nurses were getting their charts in on time and passing meds when need be. It was her job to interact with the doctors and fill orders and direct in case of an emergency. Now, at this particular hospital there are a lot of Residents who are fresh from med-school and have very little experience in a real hospital setting. Sometimes they would give orders that were unnecessary or not the best solution for the health of a patient.

Mom - being so respected - would often times coax the doctors into changing their orders to something more suitable as she has a lot of real work-experience. But then, some doctors would disagree and tell the nurses to go on ahead with his instruction. Then, when something goes wrong the blame would go on Mom and there was really nothing she could do about it.

She finally had enough when a doctor ordered a heart catheter on a patient who was extremely drunk and in no state of mind to make decisions for himself. My mom tried everything to get the doctor to not go through with it because the man really didn’t need to have a heart catheter at all!

This doctor was all the time ordering ridiculous treatments for patients because that is how he makes his money. He convinces this drunk man to sign the surgery papers and sends him to OR where he was basically receiving an unauthorized surgery seeing as his decision making was impaired.

After that, my mom decided to start applying for jobs at other hospitals because she couldn’t stand to see any more patients being abused and mistreated by the place that is supposed to have their health in best interest.

When she finally landed another RN position, she gave her notice and worked to the end of her term. After she recieved her last check they tried to tell her she was overpaid and she would have to pay back some of the money. Obviously she didn’t, and was appalled at the way they were treating her after 8+ years of loyalty to this hospital.

So, she started plotting her revenge. Before quitting, she contacted JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) and told them about the unauthorized surgery. This is a big no-no. It is something that can make a hospital lose their accreditation and be closed down permanently.

She gave them the name of the patient, the file number, the case number, the name of the doctor and the name of all other parties involved in the surgery. She was very thorough. The day after she quit, a close friend of hers that worked the same floor said that a JCAHO rep came and did some investigating almost entirely unannounced (they do warn the hospital before they come, but never give them enough of a notice to change anything beforehand).

About a week after their initial investigation (one or two people had gone and interviewed staff and look at medical records), they came back again. This time they came with A LOT of people. They pulled EVERY SINGLE FILE to review and see if any other sketchy practices had been preformed under the radar.

For every breach of HIPAA and OSHA protocol, they were fined THOUSANDS of dollars. The doctor and all staff involved in the cardiac catheter incident were fired, and the doctor lost his license and can never get it back. They threatened to close the hospital if the fines weren’t paid, which added up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Of course the family of the man found out about the surgery and sued the hospital (spoiler: he won) and had to pay him off, too.

To this day JCAHO visits the hospital frequently to make sure no more unethical practices happen again.

Don’t treat your nurses like sh*t, and don’t treat your patients like sh*t or it will come back and bite you in the ass.

Hello! thanks for creating this blog <3 I really love both games~ I wanted to read the rules but the link doesn't work so feel free to don't do it if it goes against them. We know that Nameless mc's friends are girls so can I request a scenario where they are boys and are really close with her and how would Lance and Yeonho react or feel?(maybe in the time when they were developing feelings for her) If you want you can do it with Yuri, Red and Tei. Thank you~

Shoot I thought I had the links already set up, sorry about that! But they’re already fixed, thanks for letting me know. It doesn’t go against the rules anyway so here’s your request, love! I decided to do it with all my precious nuggets~

Lance

  • In his eyes, your friends are idiots.
  • Idiotic little pricks whose voices he cannot stand, especially that one annoying blond who dozes off during student government meetings.
  • And every single time you invite him to one of your study group sessions, he can’t help but sigh and give you the cold shoulder.
  • It is absolutely appalling that you’d think he of all people would agree to it. Doesn’t he deal with enough at home and school? 
  • Only for you to expect him to join you and your friends, and have him be the teacher and cringe and sigh in frustration the whole time?
  • It irks him. He feels actual physical pain, his heads throbs.
  • Why can’t you just…? U g h
  • He’s happy to oblige when you ask for his help, and actually, he’d rather spend time with you and you only.
  • And yes, alright, perhaps he feels insecure and a little jealous.
  • Perhaps he can’t help himself and glances at you and your friends from the back of the classroom, wishing he was in their place.
  • It takes ridiculous amounts of reassurance to ease his jealousy, and some time to get him used to your friends.
  • Maybe a little peck here and there.
  • There’s a chance he’ll even let you tease him but only with a price.
  • wink wonk.
  • His rosy cheeks when you get him flustered are the cutest thing.

Yeonho

  • He doesn’t think much of it at first, but as you grow closer, his insecurities start creeping in only to resurface in the worst of ways.
  • And then a sudden realization hits him hard in the face.
  • It happens the day he has cleaning duties and stays at school while you go to Banjul to study with your friends.
  • You have all these people who could easily push him to the back until you lose sight of him, people that don’t have to try twice as hard to earn your love and affection. 
  • Besides, he’s realized he wants something more from you.
  • That thing that comes naturally when you’re with Soi and Shinbi.
  • Trust, closeness, support, he wants all of that.
  • By the time he’s done with his duties, he bursts into tears while he waits and waits for you to come get him, his thoughts getting the best of him.
  • When you finally arrive, he throws himself into your arms and holds onto your sweater like his life depends on it, squeezing and twisting the fabric while sobbing uncontrollably.
  • The only possible solutions for this mess are 1) to talk it out until your throats are sore and 2) carefully insert him into the group.
  • It’s not an easy task, it takes A LOT of time and effort, but once he gets to know the boys and befriends them, you pretty much lose them all.
  • Wait no that’s not right.
  • Um what the heck Yeonho you traitor.

Yuri

  • Out of all the dolls, he’s the least concerned one.
  • Those petty boys don’t stand a chance against him, come on.
  • Besides, there’s no way in hell his honey has such horrible taste in men.
  • Does he get jealous, though? As in real, ugly and unbearable jealousy?
  • I doubt you could tell.
  • He may not even recognize that emotion in particular considering he has a hard time figuring his feelings for you already.
  • Admittedly, they are good boys that care deeply about you, but he’s not gonna tell you that.
  • And as long as they’re not Tei, it’ll be okay, you’ll be okay.
  • If he notices there’s something else going on between you and one of your friends, he’ll take step back.
  • He’s not gonna throw a fit, he won’t shove his jealousy on your face, he’ll just distance himself and let you be happy.
  • The only responses you’re gonna get are, if you’re lucky enough, some half-assed snarky comments and a sad, somber smile. 
  • Unless, of course, you come clean about your feelings.
  • You have to pretty much let him know in the most obvious ways that it’s him who you want, not your friends.
  • Only then, after witnessing and experiencing something sincere, will he realize it’s nothing like he thought it was.
  • And he’ll feel oddly relieved.

Tei

  • Oh boy.
  • Stoic, wise and always kind and overattentive, Prince Sunshine doesn’t seem to have a problem with it.
  • Since you’re, well, surrounded by boys 24/7, this is relatively okay or so he appears to believe.
  • Yet the moment you decide to lay your eyes on him and feed this obsessive feeling he holds for you, things get unsteady.
  • He drops hints and asks vague questions about your connection with these classmates of yours.
  • He keeps an eye on the three of you whenever you pay him a visit at Banjul and keeps his cool effortlessly.
  • You poor thing have no idea what’s going inside his head.
  • He’s barely holding on to his remaining sanity and fears what he’s capable of doing to you.
  • And he figures it’s best for both parties to distance himself from you.
  • Because he wants to interfere so badly he’s digging his nails into his palms to stop himself from committing a crime.
  • Even if you manage to fix this mess, he’ll still feel wary towards them.
  • You have to show him how much he means to you and have him understand that Soi and Shinbi are just your friends.
  • But you have to be careful not to accept his unhealthy ways because that would turn into a whole ‘nother mess.

Red

  • It’s not a big deal, right?
  • Yeah, you do seem to share quite an intimate relationship with your friends, but that seems to be it? Nothing else?
  • If anything, he tends to talk to them due to his friendly nature and they get along pretty well.
  • That boy Shinbi makes him laugh in the weirdest ways, and Soi is… Soi, but he can tell how much they care for you.
  • Overall he’s cool with it until that one time when they manage to rescue you from a dangerous situation instead of him.
  • His heart isn’t just broken, it’s burnt into ashes.
  • And he starts wondering if you’re interested in them in a different sense.
  • After all, they are your heroes while he’s failed to save you.
  • Regardless of his sadness and jealousy, he goes all the way to let you know he fully supports your decision yet simultaneously distances himself from you.
  • Never keeping his eyes off of you, of course, he’ll always be there to protect you. 
  • This leads to a few misunderstandings and you’re forced to spell it out for him because baby boy is so oblivious.
  • I mean he’s smart and perceptive enough to pick up certain things, but like, the wrong ones.
  • After that, he laughs it off like it’s nothing.
  • Poor thing is so embarrassed.

So. I don't know if I'm doing this right but could you write a Drabble about aomine X reader? Something along the lines of the reader comforts aomine when he starts to show his very rare soft and vulnerable side? Maybe he's insecure about something, take it where you want. I love this blog with my whole being and I love u and thank you. Seriously. I thank you from the deepest reaches of my soul.

Second and last Anniversary gift today!

You could easily describe Aomine with only four simple words - not good with emotions. His first important priority except you and basketball, was to be seen as someone strong and tough, who will never break - no matter how hard you try to destroy him. But you knew better.

Surprisingly, he was able to hide his other side for very long, even from you. Of course, you blamed yourself for not noticing sooner, but it wasn’t really your fault.

However, the day when you finally saw him completely different will never disappear from your mind. It was the middle of November, rough and freezing wind was hitting your face harshly on the way to your boyfriend’s house. His absence in school was unexpected and being a good girlfriend you were, you decided to come by and give him notes and homework.  

 With spare keys his parents gave you, you opened the door and slowly made yourself at home. The aura was weird, which was not a good sight. Hot air carried heavy atmosphere, which didn’t help you relax at all. Your footsteps were the only heard sound as you made your way to Daiki’s room.

Without knocking, you basically barged there, humming some catchy melody.

‘Hey Daiki!’ You greeted him happily, but the only thing you saw was his back. After a second or so, you noticed that his hands and basically his whole body was shaking slightly!

‘You okay? You don’t look…good.’ Slowly overcoming distance between the two of you, you sat next to him with worried expression.

His eyes caught yours and you gulped. Sadness in them was overwhelming you and you just couldn’t stop your hand from gently slipping into his one.  

'Please, don’t just look at me. Talk to me.’ You were seriously shocked, this situation was almost the same, but this time Aomine was the one who needed help.

You waited patiently for him to answer, but he only moved his head towards window. Signing, he squeezed your hand.

'Do you..remember my neighbor? The old one? He died last night.’ His voice was low, smooth and held so many secrets.

You didn’t say anything, waiting for continuation.  

'He was a good person. Always lonely, but so fucking good. His grand kids didn’t even visit him, but I did. Every Friday. Sometimes we did not even talk, just sit and watch matches.’ He swallowed loudly, like he just tried to stop himself from crying. 'Do you know that he once came to watch me play? He said he was proud of me. Then we cooked dinner together and watched a movie. I didn’t like it, but he was as excited as a child so I pretended to have fun.’ Tears finally fall on his cold cheeks. 'Fuck, I already miss him.’ Single tears became a waterfall and then Daiki was a sobbing mess, clutching to your smaller frame like puppy.

And you? You stayed collected and strong, petting his head and listening to every sound he made.  

 'I-I am s-sorry for t-this.’ You heard him mutter.

'Don’t be, it is human. You are human.’

'Do you want to…watch this movie with me?’ He asked after cleaning his face. You gave him a small smile, wiping the last tear from his cheek.

'Yes, let’s go.’

Aomine cried again that night, and you stayed. Because that’s what we do for our loved ones, we are not ashamed of crying in front of them and not scared of their tears.  

obianidala au where they’re all teachers at the same high school and eventually it becomes a well-known fact among all the students (and the rest of the faculty) that there is Something Going On between mr skywalker, ms amidala, and mr kenobi

at first everyone thinks that it’s anakin vs obi wan competing for padme’s affections because heteronormativity but then one day a hapless student accidentally stumbles upon anakin and obi wan making out in an empty classroom. the picture, which is captioned FUCKING PLOT TWIST, gets retweeted by practically every single person in the school.

after that it is an all-out shipping war. everyone’s placing bets on who they think will end up together. anakin bets on obidala and padme on obikin just to fuck with everyone (obi wan watches disapprovingly from the sidelines…but he may or may not have slipped a couple dollars in for anidala). the anidala, obikin, and obidala factions are all pretty evenly sized, but there is one tiny obianidala subgroup who no one else takes seriously. to everyone’s astonishment, obi wan’s the one who finally cracks. in class one day a student makes a sly remark that obi wan has heard one too many times, and he just yells WE’RE ALL DATING OKAY WILL EVERYONE PLEASE SHUT UP ABOUT IT

needless to say, this announcement is the talk of the school for weeks, if not months afterwards. the tiny obianidala subgroup gets very, very rich. it is not a coincidence that principal yoda suddenly decides he can afford to comfortably retire at the end of the school year.

I'm kinda interested in what you think , newt would be like under the influence of alcohol. Like I don't see him being a person to really drink but just IF he would get drunk? Would you consider writing about that?

I do consider! And you know what, I did!
And I LOVE IT

Newt was never much of the partying type. In all honesty, he was a bit intimidated by the ones who were. At Hogwarts, the other wizards went to the Yule ball or went on expeditions to Hogsmeade, while he would stay behind and spend time with his creatures.
He didn’t mind, of course. He always found himself more at home with creatures than humans, so a Friday night at home with Pickett was better than any night out at a pub.
But he knew he couldn’t stay that way forever, and he realized he had to step out of his comfort zone when you asked him to your favorite muggle pub in the city.
He had fancied you ever since your first day at the ministry, and he admired everything about you. He admired how gentle you were with his creatures and how naturally they seemed to act around you as well. He admired how you would actively speak out for the rights of magical beasts, and although they often went unheard to the public, he took every single speech of yours to heart.
But you never seemed to notice how hopelessly in love with you he was, and it broke him a little more every day.

That was until last night, when you finally asked him out, and Newt, being the hopeful little fellow he is, was sure this would be the night when everything took off between you two. Your first date.

Just…why did it have to be around alcohol?
He was never a fan of drinking, honestly, he never really saw the appeal.
However, he didn’t want to come off as a prude on your first date, so he thought, why not? It’s only one night.
He suddenly found himself at the steps of the “Mayflower”, a few minutes tardy thanks to the raging snowstorm. He knew you would be on the other side of that door, probably dressed so beautifully it would make him weak in the knees. He prepared himself and took a deep breath.
He then pushed open the wooden doors, and immediately found you at the bar, laughing and talking to another man. What little confidence he had left him as he realized, this was, in fact, not a date.
His heart sank a little bit, but he approached you anyway.
“(Y/N)” he tried to pull your attention from Nick, waving a little bit, and collecting his hands in his lap.
Your eyes flickered over to him, and they immediately lit up.
“Newt! Hey, you made it!” The enthusiasm in your voice made his heart skip a beat.
“O-of course I did” he chuckled. “I’m sorry, who is this?”

Your attention flashed back to the man you were talking to, then smiled.
“Oh, this is Nick! We use to go to school together. We were all in the same year at Hogwarts, yet never knew each other. Isn’t that fascinating?” she pointed to the frighteningly muscular man, who in Newt’s opinion, had a rather silly haircut and poor taste in fashion.
“Yes that’s very fascinating” he muttered, then took a seat next you, opposite of ‘Nick.’
“Oh, we already ordered,” He stated, and Newt breathed a sigh of relief.
“Oh, that’s very ok, I-”
“It’s alright, I’ll wave him back over here!”

“…don’t like to drink” Newt finished, so quietly no one could hear him.
He shifted in his seat uncomfortably, not even knowing how to order at a pub.

Maybe he should just go home, he thought, he needed to check on the Occamies.

He shoved a hand into his pocket, and was about to stand from his seat when he met your eyes, and suddenly, he forgot why he ever wanted to leave in the first place.
“Sounds great”
•••
Four shots of some strange brown liquor later, Newt wasn’t feeling so good. The waiter kept bringing them out, and he kept drinking purely out of peer pressure. He didn’t feel anything at first, which is why he agreed to so many.
You and this ‘Nick’ guy were reminiscing over your past Gryffindor days, exchanging ‘hilarious’ stories about your classes and adventures, ones that he obviously couldn’t empathize with.
So he took two more shots.
Now he was starting to feel dizzy, and with that, rather not himself. Any anxiety or crippling fear of rejection he previously held onto suddenly vanished into thin air.

It felt good, he thought.
“And with that, I’ve got to run.” Nick said, glancing at the wall clock behind the bar. Newt felt himself looking up at the man, a smile creeping onto his lips.

“Yes, yes very nice of you to join us! I very much look forward to our next excursion together, just you, me, and the lovely (Y/N). Godspeed my good man!” Newt shoved his empty shot glass from his hand, and shook Nick’s rather roughly.
“Oh…alright” Nick was giving him a very peculiar expression, but turned his attention to you instead. Newt felt a pang in his chest, and his face twisted into a scowl.

“I truly look forward to seeing you again” he leaned down to kiss your hand, and lingered a bit too long for Newt’s liking.

Who is this woman, the Queen? Move along!

“Newt…good seeing you” he made sure to keep his distance from the drunken Brit, then exited the pub in a haste, leaving you and Newt alone at the bar.

Once Nick was out the doors, your expression hardened, and you looked at Newt in concern.

“Newt, how much did you drink?” your voice was low.

“I’m not so pip-poppity sure…but there was this-” he paused for a hiccup.

“Pardon me! Anywho, there were these tiny glasses with this strong, brown liquid in them! Did you know these small glasses could hold so much pleasantry?”

“Alright that’s enough of an answer for me. I’m bringing you home.” You take a couple bills from your wallet and place it on the counter under your coaster.

Newt, sensing the change in atmosphere, frowned deeply and pouted.

“B-but I don’t want to leave! We’ve been having such a lovely evening, I would hhhhate for it to come to an end over something so s-s-silly.” you laugh as Newt slurred out a string of wordy dialogue.

“Our night isn’t ending, we’re just taking it to the next location! I know that you’ll find your flat far more enjoyable than this sweaty little pub.” You smile as you place a hand on his shoulder. Newt was staring back at you, then pressed his cheek against your hand, nuzzling into it like a cat.

“Y-yes…I do like that idea”

You helped him out of his chair and stagger through the doors, into the freezing London night.

“Is there anyone around?” you ask pointlessly to the wasted man beside you.

You take out your wand, and apparate the two of you to his flat.

“Here we are” you breathe, and you remove your arm from under Newt’s shoulder.

Newt, suddenly feeling the lack of your presence, slumped on the couch and lied down.

“Will you stay with me?” he asked, voice full in sensitivity.

You looked back at him, surprised from the sudden call of affection.

“Pardon?”

“Will you stay here tonight? I’ll even make us some tea, we’ll have a lovely evening!” he began to stand, but immediately crashed back down onto the sofa.

“A-actually, can you make it? I’ll assist you by sending good thoughts and positive anecdotes!”

You chuckle at the wizard, practically blacked out on his sofa and spitting nonsense.

“Of course I’ll stay here. Wouldn’t want you getting into any trouble, would we?” you turn your back to him to inspect the cupboard, finding more exotic herbs rather than food for humans.

“You know, a wise man by the name of Gandhi once said-” you cut him off with your own question.

“That’s great Newt, but do you mind telling me why there’s more creature than human food in your cupboard?”

He lifted his head slightly, but plopped it right back down again, gazing at the ceiling.

“I don’t have many guests around, my creatures are the most important things to me…well besides you of course.” you freeze, completely forgetting about your search for the tea bags. You turn, a confused look on you face.

“You think I’m important to you?” Newt giggled in response, as if it was the silliest question he’d ever heard. He then sat up, and hugged a cushion under his chin.

“Of course you are. You are the prettiest, smartest, kindest, and prettiest girl I’ve ever known.” you felt your face flush a deep shade of red.

“You already said pretty”

“That’s because it’s extra true”

“You need to go to bed Newt” you press, closing the cupboards and going to help him again, but he put his arm out, refusing.

“Don’t deny it! You’re one of the brightest, and most talented witches anyone’s ever known, and anyone who has the fortune to work with you knows it. Especially me” you listened to him ramble on and on, obviously not recognizing the severity of his veracity.

“I really do” then he yawned, and turned his head away from the harsh ceiling light.

He almost immediately fell into slumber, and you watched him happily as his chest rose and fell with every breath.

You weren’t sure if he was speaking the truth, or if it was the alcohol, but you did know one thing.

Newt was going to have one hell of a hangover tomorrow.
