i have about 5 drafts left

andthisiswhereifind  asked:

I need your help. This weekend I've dealt with terrible allergies, stress from school, and shitty people at work. And out of all of that, the stress of the New Jersey Devils picking Nolan Patrick or Nico Hischier with their 1st overall pick surpasses all of them. Help. What do I do?

HELLO, FRIEND. I, a human disaster of epic proportions, am not remotely equipped to deal with stress. HOWEVER, I am here for you in your time of need!

TOP FIVE THINGS TO DO WHILE STRESSING ABOUT THE DRAFT
aka
ENNA’S GUIDE ON HOW TO PICK YOUR FAVORITE OUT OF THE TWO TOP PROSPECTS:

1) All About The Jersey is the SB Nation blog of the New Jersey Devils, where you can find people who are Similarly Stressed. Also, intuitive debates about who is better.

Well.

Sometimes.

2) Here are some highlight packages for Nolan:

(also sometimes featuring John Quenneville, current Devils forward! He and Nolan played on a line together in 2015-16.)

Here are some highlight packages for Nico:

I apologize in advance for the shitty music choices.

3) You don’t HAVE to be stressed out about Nico and Nolan! Why not stress about other Devils things, like the multitude of Kovalchuk rumors, or even Shattenkirk rumors, or just this photo of Patrik Elias, which I have been crying over for like eighty years.

Scoot on, Patty. Scoot on.

4) Remember that ZACH PARISE DIED FOR THIS*. ZACH PARISE DIED AND LEFT THE DEVILS SO NOLAN OR NICO COULD LIVE AS A DEVIL. Thank you for leaving, Zach. I forgive you. 

*Zach Parise is not actually dead**.

**as far as I know. I’m pretty sure he might be dead inside, though.

5) Here are some ~~fun links about them and the draft!

A general draft preview. Bob Mckenzie’s pre-season draft rankings (slightly out of date). An article about how much John Quenneville loves Nolan Patrick

And, lastly: these gifs, and a few facts that I will leave you with!

Nolan Patrick doesn’t like pizza, has at least 1 tattoo, once went to a One Direction concert with Wheat Kings teammate Kale Clague, and claims to have the best hair in the WHL, even though his friend Tanner Kaspick cuts it in his basement.

Nico Hischier comes from a soccer family, is going to be the highest-drafted Swiss player EVER, is a big fan of Nintendo games (which he got?? for free??), and once did this interview, where he was asked “how he would stop himself” if he… played against himself? I will let you experience it on your own!! (x)

Good luck!!! Remember, the draft is June 23-24, with the combine coming up soon! <3

Feferi Peixes Skirt Tutorial

A simple skirt tutorial, step by step in extremely full detail with drawn out pictures (because i forgot to take pictures during the process groaaan) under the cut! Used inches/yards as measurement. All under $20 and can be done in one night. I suggest reading everything first, then trying it out, step by step, in case of error. I tried this without a pattern the night before I was supposed to give this skirt to a friend because I got the materials it that night hhh

LEVEL: Medium, need to know knowledge of sewing, pinning, and hemming

You were not made to be lonely.
.
This is not your design,
to cut your skin on the
teeth of other people’s words;
there is a universe on
your tongue.
.
I know that you have burnt yourself up
on the altars of those you
believed in 
and if you could pray yourself away
you would,
.
because loneliness is a half life
.
but you are already whole.
You have never been a fragment
in someone else’s soul
.
and if you exist at all 
outside the periphery of yourself
then it is in those you love;
.
you are not those who have left you,
but those who have stayed
and you are still here,
not prayed away or fleeting
and this is living.

Half Life - AH (this is a first draft and it took 5 minutes, and Tumblr is being a cock about the formatting, but I have seen sad posts on my dash about people feeling lonely in the run-up to Christmas, and that won’t do. This isn’t forever. To reuse the tags I wrote earlier which inspired this:

#there have been so many posts on my dash today #that have made me sad to see #and i guess what i mean #is that no-one deserves loneliness #don’t ever think that you do #and don’t ever think that it’s going to be forever #because it won’t be #people will ebb and flow #and you won’t know the same people in 3 years #but that’s good #and that’s fine #and you’ll know different people #some better and some worse #and that’s just how it is

I’m feeling a little down on myself re: holiday weight gain (only about 5 pounds WHO CARES, right?? that’s not bad) but I’m still just feeling really frustrated and discouraged and doomed to be overweight no matter what I do and hungry all the time and my shin hurts to the touch so I’m having to take a 30-day running hiatus and then I found this picture saved in my drafts and I’m trying to be more positive about my current situation. wow run on sentence. 

Picture on the right is September 2011. (Didn’t start losing weight until 2013)

Picture on the left is September or October 2014. 

That’s the same shirt.
