i just needed a break from school

college advice from someone who’s been on both sides of it

So I’m finishing up my Ph.D. and preparing to depart for the real world (no, just kidding, I’m going to be in school forever, only in a different capacity) and I thought I’d put together a list of some college tips to share with you all. I graduated with my B.A. in 2012, magna cum laude, with 2 majors, 1 honours thesis, 2 on-campus jobs, and 3 music things. Since then, I’ve gone to grad school and also taught six semesters of first-year seminars. Now I’m going on the job market for teaching positions. All of this means that I’ve seen both sides of the college experience, as a student and as an instructor. There are a lot of great & useful college advice posts going around studyblr this time of here, and I wanted to add my own. I hope it’s useful. So here we go, with a “read more” because it’s long (sorry if you’re on mobile):

academics

  • find your classrooms ahead of time (profs’ offices too)
  • figure out how long it will take you to walk between places
  • figure out where your best seat will be & claim it
  • say hi to the people next to you, learn their names
  • take notes in class
  • take advantage of extra credit
  • try your best not to fall asleep in class (and if you do fall asleep, apologise to the prof afterwards)
  • bring your glasses if you need them, don’t be stubborn about it
  • check out the library, wander in the stacks, talk to the librarians
  • figure out how & where to print
  • buy used books/textbooks, or rent them, but be careful with ebooks (some profs don’t allow them)
  • plan breaks into your class schedule, or block everything together, whichever works best for you
  • work out the pros & cons of 8am classes and/or night classes
  • plan ahead – have a planner, put things in it, do them
    • fake deadlines are a thing (write down earlier deadlines, trick yourself into meeting them, bask in satisfaction)
  • grades won’t be what they were in high school
    • keep in mind GPA values: a 3.5 will see you graduating with honours
  • be nice to the departmental administrative staff, thank them for helping you (even with small things)
  • office hours versus emailing profs: both will get your questions answered (probably) but if you can go and talk in person, do it
  • profs & TAs are people too, they have lives, they have bad days
  • if something comes up, talk to your prof, be honest but don’t overshare, just show them you’re trying
  • on that note, try

Back To School Tips Master Post!

I had a few people asking me to do a back to school tips/ how to do well in school post so here it is. I’m a sophomore in college and an honors student so I plan on sharing the things that have helped me succeed. Even though these tips are things I use now in college, most of them I also used in high school so it can be applied there as well. 

Organization                                                                                                           The most beneficial thing you can do is stay organized.

  1. Get a planner.- I bought mine this year at Walgreens for around $7 but it has a plastic cover so all paper ones are even cheaper. A planner is good for keeping track of when everything is due. When I get my syllabi for my classes I go through them and write down the due dates of homework, essays, tests, etc, on the day they are due. You can color code your classes or just write the class next to the assignment. This way you can look at a whole week and see everything you have due for all of your classes in one place. It’s also easier to add in things or make changes if your professor decides to due so.
  2. Use a white board- I know white boards can be expensive, so if you can’t afford one, expo markers will write on laminated paper which you can get for around $4 on Amazon. I use this to keep on my wall and write the next really important date for each class. So I have all my classes listed on the board and let’s say my next big date in Psych is a test. I’d write that date on the board, then after the test, I’d erase it and write the next important date. These dates should be in your planner as well but it’s nice to have them right in front of you at all times so you don’t turn to the next week in your planner and realize you have a test on Monday. 
  3. Buy durable folders- If you’re going to be using your folders all year make sure they’ll last all year. You want to lose any of your assignments. I get plastic folders at Office Depot for $0.39 a piece. I chose a color for each class and write the class at the top in sharpie and I’m good to go!
  4. Notebooks too!- You’re going to be taking a lot of notes so make sure to keep a notebook for each class as well. Mine were $3 each at Office Depot but they have a plastic cover so if you need to save some money get the paper covers because you most likely wont reuse a notebook.
  5. Get a pack of loose leaf paper- Sometimes you have to turn things in and if you’re like me then you hate tearing it out of your notebook. But if you don’t have a problem with that then don’t worry about it!
  6. Use some sort of bag/backpack- This will help you not lose anything plus you can put water, snacks, etc in it as well!

Study Tips                                                                                                               Tests are often the biggest portion of your grade so knowing the best ways to study will help you out the most. 

  1. Figure out what type of learner you are- This can greatly improve your study skills. There are visual learners; these people learn best with charts, graphs, and anything that show a visual relationship between information. So if you’re this type of person, to help study you could make charts, graphs, tables, draws arrows between points of information, or watch videos. Anything to help you see it. There are also auditory learners; these people learn best when hearing the information. So the best way for these people to study is to recite information out loud, or if your course has an audio book to listen to it. You could also have a friend read information to you and you say it as well. Some people are reading/writing learners; they do best when reading the text and writing down important points/taking notes. This is the type of learner I am so to help me study, I write out my own flashcards, I copy power points into my notes, and as I read my chapters I write the important information.  Something else that is good for these kind of learners is to make little quizzes for yourself. There are also kinesthetic learners; they learn best with more hands on activities. This can be hard to do especially with some subjects. If you can physically do what you’re studying then do it. If not, make a game out of it. For example, ask yourself questions and if you get it right take a shot at a basketball hoop or a soccer goal (if you don’t have these things use a paper ball and your trashcan or anything you can substitute. Figuring out which learner you are will greatly improve how you study.
  2. Don’t wait until right before a test- Cramming your brain with all the information a few days before a test will not help you remember and only stress you out. This is called Massed Practice and is proven to be a waste of time and information is not retained well. Study a little everyday or every other day. This is called the Spacing Effect and is proven to improve retention and recall of information. So it is best to do short sessions of study over a long period of time rather than a long session all at once.
  3. Find a good place to study- If you like quiet places and your house/dorm is too loud go to a library or outside if it’ s a nice day.  If you like a lot of background noise play some music or go to a coffee shop.

Overall Tips                                                                                                            These tips are still really important but I don’t have enough that fit together to make another header.

  1. Work on what’s due first- Some people think it’s always best to work on the important things first but that’s not always the case. If your essay is due in two weeks and you have an assignment due in a few days then finish the assignment first. You’ll still have plenty of time for your essay. I suggest doing all your work but if something happens to where you just can’t then yes do the more important thing because it’ll be a bigger part of your grade.
  2. Writing Centers- A lot of colleges/universities have writing centers.  If you’re not the best at writing or just need some help you can make an appointment at the writing center where someone highly qualified in writing will read your paper/essay and help you with grammar, punctuation, idea flow, overall organization etc. I highly suggest checking to see if your school has one of these.
  3. Check your email/Blackboard/whatever your professor uses- This is where they may add extra assignments/ cancel class and not mention it in class. It’s always important to check.
  4. Try to relax- I know it can be hard, especially for students with depression, anxiety, and other mental/physical illnesses but it’s important to always take a moment and calm down. Take breaks from your work and do something you enjoy for at least a few minutes everyday. If you need a nap, take a nap. just set an alarm to pick back up on your work later.
  5. Don’t worry about being perfect- This is still something I’m working on myself but getting better at. Last semester I got a B for the first time since my sophomore year of high school and it bothered me to no end. But, I told myself I did my best, and as a person with bad social anxiety I’m okay with my B in public speaking. So for anyone else who feels like they have to keep their 4.0 all 4 years, don’ t panic if you don’t. There’s nothing wrong with not being perfect, almost no one graduates college with a 4.0. Always do your best, but don’t put too much pressure on yourself. I cannot stress this enough.
  6. Take classes you enjoy- Hopefully you’re in a major that you enjoy so you wont hate your classes too much but it’s still important to try to take a fun class every once in awhile. If you like art, take an art class. Then, you’re still doing work but also doing something you like.
  7. Get a tutor- If you’re not doing as well in a class as you would like, don’t be afraid to get a tutor. Most universities offer tutors who are students that would love to help you and wont be judgmental at all. There’s nothing wrong with getting a little extra help and tutors are often people who have already passed the class with an A so they’ll be very good resources.
  8. Take care of yourself- Overall, make sure you’re eating well and drinking water throughout the day. Sometimes it’s impossible, but try to get enough sleep. If you go out to party watch out for yourself and others. Practice self care and if things get too stressful and you need help don’t be afraid to ask.

I know this post is very long, but I wanted to share everything I could for anyone who wanted help. If I think of anything else I’ll definitely add it later. I hope everyone has a great semester and school year! Good luck to everyone!

When you’re taking a break from school and work, what’s your favourite way to unwind? Escape rooms, game nights, or a simple night in cooking with friends and family. Just a simple night of fun and laughter is always just what I need. I also love to travel. Seeing the world and being a little wanderlust is always amazing.

Summary: You needed a study break, and let’s just say things got touchy.

Characters: Tom Holland x Reader

Warnings: smut, cursing, d*ddy kink

Word Count: 989

A/N: 18+ only please!! Since y’all were being nasty the other day, here’s a quick one that y’all inspired me to write.

“Babe,” Tom had said, but you didn’t hear him, “(Y/N)!” he screamed making you jolt away from your school work.

“Sorry. I was blasting the music. What is it, Tom?” you said.

“Come lay down for a while. You’ve been studying all day. You need to relax.”

You thought about it and didn’t fight against it. You took the ear buds out and placed everything on the desk, and crawled into bed with Tom.

“You seem tense, love. Take your shirt off and lay on your stomach. I bet you have knots from that horrid desk chair,” he said, kissing your head.

Because I needed a break from commissions and these shows are practically my life right now. xD

THE DEETS:

Keith (AKA ‘Red’ because he’s just that original) possesses the enhancement quirk 'instinct’, which essentially gives him the speed, strength, senses and reflexes of an animal - a lion, to be specific. Team that with a lifetime of combat experience courtesy of a shitty neighbourhood and an inability to think before he acts, getting into U.A. was a breeze - during his time there he was the best in his class.

Lance (AKA 'Sharpshooter’ because 'Cool Ninja Sharpshooter’ was apparently too long and too stupid) possesses the quirk 'Bullet Fingers’ and it’s pretty much what it says on the tin - the boy can shoot bullets from the tips of his fingers. The density of the bullets all depend on how much iron he’s consumed, so he’s got to eat a lot of red meat to keep his bullets effective. He was originally a student in the General course before wowing the teachers at the sports festival enough to get him transferred into heroics.

Friendly reminder that Koogi was still in school when she started Killing Stalking and graduated before season one ended.

That means she had to balance studying, and taking exams with producing a full colored beautifully drawn, multipanelled webcomic.

She only just graduated, she hasn’t had a proper vacation yet. And although I’m still upset over the hiatus, I understand that she needs this break before she burns out. She NEEDS this break. She isn’t a machine.

Don’t be an ass to Koogi. She works so hard only to be bashed by people who blames her for needing a break from work.

winggaurdiumleviosa  asked:

you're posts make me super happy and they're so lovely !! i was wondering if u had any advice for someone struggling to stay motivated to do school work and stop procrastinating? thank u in advance !! 💕💕

Sure thing! I’m a junior in college and I’m pretty intense about my school work, so I can tell you what I do to stay on top of things (I almost never procrastinate and actually get things done early a lot).  

1. Use a planner. Use. A. Planner. Or a calendar, or a notebook, or some system where you physically write down all of your month’s due dates. Then make a daily to-do list where you basically break up the assignments into how much you want/need to get done for that day. So I used a weekly planner and in the monthly part I write all the due dates and things, and then in the weekly part, I use each day to write what I wanna do. So say I have 80 pages of reading due in two days on Wednesday. On Monday I write “read 40 pages” and on Tuesday I write “read 40 pages.” This leads to my next tip. 

2. Break things up. This will help you stop procrastinating by making the work into small more reasonable chunks. So instead of dreading writing a 10-page paper, you just need to outline it one day. So use the planning from the step above to break it into really really small steps that you will do every day. Taking things step by step makes it so much easier, and you can just chip away at it. 

3. Take care of yourself. So as important as this stuff is, your health comes first. This means, getting enough sleep, water, food, and exercise (if exercise is something you can do/makes you feel good). You won’t be able to focus on anything if you don’t have your fundamental health needs met. So even though it seems like you don’t have enough time for lunch or sleeping, just take a break and make time. Health is not only more important than school but being in good health means you will be more focused and do better in school. 

5. You don’t need to do everything (in college at least). So I came from a super intense and high achieving high school that conditioned me to do everything and be a perfectionist. So freshman year of college I literally did all of the reading and all of the assignments. I would be doing homework dusk till dawn just because of all that reading. However, the next year, when my work load went up, I realized that there literally was no time to do all of the reading. So basically I learned to skim and/or use spark notes for some reading assignments that just weren’t realistic or even that relevant. I’m not saying don’t read. Reading actually helps you get good grades. But you don’t need to read every second of every page because there literally isn’t enough time in the day for that. 

4. Stay positive. I’m a pessimist and I have anxiety, so it’s a constant struggle to keep my mental health in check during school. I try to think positive and give myself lots of love for what I’m accomplishing. This means not being too hard on myself, and give yourself love in ways that you like. Live for yourself and in a way that makes you happy. 

Hope this helps! Good luck!  

PS check out my studyblr @warmstudiess! I’m gonna be talking about this stuff and posting pics of my college life in less than a few weeks!

unforth-ninawaters  asked:

Dean/Cas, high school AU, rivals to friends/lovers? (And it's nice to see you back, I like your writing a lot, I hope things are okay for you!)

Dean wasn’t exactly a bad student but he’d never been particularly great at anything. Math was his best subject and most of the time he got A’s or B’s in that but he wasn’t like some super genius. That would be Sam.

When he started wrestling, he thought he’d finally found something he was great at. Coach Blevins was impressed with him and since Benny Lafitte was graduating in a year, there didn’t seem to be anything holding Dean back from becoming the next team captain.

Until Castiel freaking Novak showed up.

Castiel transferred early in the year, easily making the team. Then, just before the start of the season in November, he managed to squeeze up into Dean’s weight class.

During their first match at practice, Castiel had Dean pinned in ten seconds flat.

Very Weird Prompts

“I came home to find you sitting on the floor with a pizza and whispering to it ‘om nom nom nom deeeelicious’ like the bag from Dora the Explorer, what the fuck, are you okay?”

“You’re my new cellmate and you just offered to help me break out but only if I’ll sing ‘Breaking Free’ from High School Musical with you.”

“I know I just broke into your apartment in the middle of the night but there are some bad people after my special power over alternate universes and I’ve decided to put all my faith on you to save everything.”

“Your grandmother was the best in her field and you’re the only one she ever taught listen I know you don’t want this but we need someone to take the job as soon as possible and you’re our best choice.”

“People faint when my emotions run high I hate this power do you know how many times I’ve tried to explain this.”

“See this dog? Take it, he’s gonna be important.”

“I know you’re royalty, but there are greater things at stake, so put on the freaking gillysuit and follow me.”

“I know what this looks like and I honestly have no explanation as to why this kind gentleman got himself killed by my toe.”

“I need a hairdryer, a fork and a little bit of glue.”

“Ah yes, the endless abyss. The unforgiving darkness in which I will be alone in foreve- Wait who the hell are you?!”

“Alright, so let me get this straight; You’ve been locked down here for what? ….Two weeks?! And you never bothered to yell for help? Not even once?!”

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking. Well…not really, your Captain’s dead, but I can fly a plane! …I think… anyways, please put on your seatbelt, the Bermuda Triangle does NOT kid around haha”

getting out of an abusive household - a household where you don’t feel safe - is difficult as all hell. you can’t do it at once, can’t pack a day’s bag in half an hour and leave. trust me, i’ve tried, you gotta plan in little steps

  • break belongings down into chunks. clothes, toiletries, valuables, essentials, others. whatever you absolutely need. figure out how to pack a bag to take
  • you need housing or other shelter. organise with friends and safe family, look up safe shelters, youth groups etc. too
  • look up transport fares. can you catch the bus? can you afford a travel card? if you’re like me and you have a school opal/other card (free travel on mondays to fridays), it’s your greatest asset. even $10 on an adult card gets you a ride or two somewhere
  • make a plan. accrue evidence, bide your time, whatever. keeping your head down is the best way to go about it; you want to be stealthy. be patient. hold onto your determination
  • have multiple options up your sleeve. if you only have one plan that hinges on a specific set of circumstances, you’re fucked. if something falls through, don’t get hung up on it. as long as there’s a sliver of hope, there’s a way. find another way. if there’s only one option, study it as much as possible, run it through your mind; if you can practice it, practice it (but remember to be stealthy). you want the final result to be as smooth as possible
  • in everything: organisation is key. make checklists. wherever you need to, break it into little chunks. smaller chunks are easier to run through your mind and link together later. that’s a tip from your friendly autistic pal
  • what kind of bag do you have? I’ve got the luxury of a once-used 70L hiking pack so I can pack heaps of stuff, but get the best bag you have. someone close to me has just a school backpack, and they can fit two changes of clothes and a few other necessities. I’d imagine it’s more likely you’ll have a backpack, so learn how to pack your bag best
  • income is super important; can you apply for welfare? are you on welfare? can you keep up a job, or get money from somewhere else?

hrgjgh I’m out of spoons, I can’t think of anything else. the main point I”m trying to get across is that time is most important; practice practice practice, get used to minor independence things, contact as many people as you trust to help, and keep your head down, and bide your time. you want to leave as smoothly as possible. don’t have a half-plan that hinges on maybes - of course sometimes it can’t be helped but as much as you can make sure you have a solid plan of action with safety nets

does anyone want to add anything???

|Late Night Conversations| R.MANTLE /PART ONE\

It was hard day for me. My arm is bandaged, it hurt like shit but I have this thing for you and I hope you’ll like it. 

Funny story: I came up with this idea when my doctor pulled the glass out of my skin. I’m good fam. I’m a survivor ;)) 

IMAGINE ABOUT: Reggie and reader kinda had ‘a thing’ with eachother but when Jason Blossom death comes out. Reggie immediately leaves the city leaving her with nothing but her feelings. 


I’m not supposed to be like this. 

I’m not supposed to be the sad girl who doesn’t know where the hell she’s going and what the fuck she’s doing. I’m not supposed to care too much about what anyone thinks and I’m not supposed to let words affect my choices. 

I’m supposed to be that bitchy, funny maybe a little nice girl that hungs out with her friends on weekends and goes to an average school to pursue average career. 

So far. I’ve menaged to let one person change up my life like a span of a few months. What’s killing me? I think some part of me thinks I’m supposed to be the girl who cares too much for her own good. 

My parents don’t understand me. I don’t blame them. I fucking love my parents but sometimes, I just need a break. I need a break from a lot of people and I need a break to recycle my old self to keep anyone from getting in and ripping my heart to shreds. 

Sort of like how I’m feeling right now. 

There’s no way to better describe this feelng other than the fact that I’ve tried to drown my feelings multiple times, only to find out those fuckers can swim and do  water tricks as well. 

Exams have been like hell, although I did imagine this week to consist of Reggie kissing up my neck as I study. I shouldn’t even be thinking about this, he’s gone, whatever, he didn’t choose me so fuck him right?

It’s been a few days since Reggie left, and a few days since Archie and I last spoke . Archie and I have been making eye contact at most, and I can tell by the look in his eyes that he has so much to say but can’t. 
I’ve ignored his glances and ignored his silent plea’s to confess to him my true feelings and opinion, so far it’s been good. 

In other news speaking, Reggie’s been leaving me numerous messages, in all shapes and sizes, and every single on of them made my feeling stronger than a rock.

I sat there re-reading every message he sent, analyzing over the words and thinking about what he meand by all of them. This alien feeling in my stomach makes my eyes water whenever and my lips quiver as I read. I don’t know this feeling, and I don’t like this. Reggie’s that kind of persons, he’s the kind I think I’d never be fully mad at. 

I lay in my bed in the late at night. Thinking of nothing but Reggie’s body an my last fucking exam tommorow morning. I like this quietness, althought it would be better with Reggie. Fuck. I should stop thinking like that. I like the moonlight at this time and I like the feeling on my skin against the bed. I like it, all that it is

Just as I was about to exit my messages app, it scrolls back down to Reggie’s chat, notifying me of a new message. 

iMessage from Reggie

i wanna go home 

you read that in 2 second, u were waiting for me? please tell me u were waiting for me 

i miss your lips 

so damn much i could almost taste them 


(read: 3:27am) 


I feel so tempted to reply back. To tell him that thoughs of him have taken over my brain and I can’t help but feel like shit although he’s the one doing all the demage. He’s the one who walked out when I asked him to come clean with me, and he’s the one running away now for a reason he won’t bother telling me. 

I need to stop reminding myself that we’re not together. He can do whatever the hell he wants and i have nothing to say in it whatsoever. I can’t even allow myself to be mad at him. 

I debate in my head wheter I sould reply to ease this misery, knowing he’d been messaging me desperately for the past few days. I miss him like hell. If this is what it felt like not having his arms curled up around my body and his hair tickling my neck. I can only imagine what it would feel like withouth him at all. I decide to message him, a reply something he said says ago. My fingers type the words, staring at them for a few seconds before I press send. 

iMessage to: Reggie

iMessage from: Reggie

_______

“That’s it, Y/N! Just lean into the curve a bit more.” George coaxes from the field. You were at Quidditch practice, though you’d stayed a bit later with George, as you were having trouble keeping your balance on your broom recently. You’d just started playing again after you’d been out with a broken leg, so it wasn’t uncommon to have struggles with balance. “Oh- nonono.” he quickly raises on his broom a bit to stop you from toppling down. “Let’s stop for today, yeah? You’ve made heaps of progress, wouldn’t want to push it.” he looks mildly out of breath from the effort of flying up so quickly. 

You nod, lowering to the ground. “Alright, cool. I need to find Fred, speaking of which. Do you know why he wasn’t at practice.”

George has a somewhat knowing smirk on his face. “I think I might have an idea.”

“Really? Is he ill? Is he okay?” 

George laughs. “He’s fine- you two just have some talking to do, I reckon.”

“Why thanks, George, I’m glad to know that I can always count on you for direct answers.” 

He laughs again, shoving you teasingly. “Go talk to dear Freddie.” he says, his voice suddenly mimicking Professor Trelawney’s. “All the answers shall be written there.”

You roll your eyes, muttering a “shove off, George” before going to find Fred. You push open the door to the common room, smiling when you see him standing by fire. “Hey, Freddie there you are!” you walk over to him. “Practice was awesome today, you should’ve seen it-”

“I’m sure it was.” he snorts. 

“Missed you, though.” you ignore his jab. “Are you sick or-”

“You didn’t seem to- in fact you looked quite content with George, actually.” you feel your eyebrows shoot up. 

“Fred, what’s wrong with you?” you huff in annoyance, pulling his hand back before he can storm off with his sudden moodiness. 

“I dunno, Y/N, why don’t you go ask George?” you roll yours eyes, pushing him over, which would’ve worked a lot better if you hadn’t fallen with him. You land on top of him and feel yourself flush at your sudden proximity. To be fair, you don’t often push people over when you get annoyed, but you were pretty sure whatever mood Fred was in was contaminating you- clearly he was just asking to be pushed over. 

“What’s your problem?” you can’t help but smile down at the flustered redhead underneath of you.

He doesn’t respond, pushing himself up on his elbows so that he can reach your lips, one of his hands coming up to rest in your hair. His lips are gentle against yours, and you freeze in surprise. He pulls away almost just as quickly, his eyes as wide as yours, seeming to be just as surprised by his sudden actions as you. “I’m-”

You weren’t quite sure what he was, because you cut him off then, your lips silencing his as you return his kiss. He doesn’t seem to have the same problem as you, and kisses back instantly, the hand in your hair pulling you closer to him. Your hands come up to rest on his cheeks, and he leans into them. You can feel his heartbeat there, and it carries the same quick beat as yours. 

When he pulls away, you grin at him. “Fred Weasley, if I didn’t know any better I’d say you were jealous.”

He gives you an indignant look.“Absolutely not.”

“Really?” you challenge.

“Of course. I mean, that’d just be… silly.” you giggle at his expression. 

“So you wouldn’t mind if I took George up on those private practices he was talking about?”

He pales. “I wouldn’t go that far.” he clears his throat, shifting slightly. “I mean, I’ve heard better things about his twin’s private lessons, so I’m sure I could put in a good word for you.”

“That’s very generous of you Fred.”

“Only the best for you, love.” he winks. “Now, can we talk about how you just tackled me? Because if you’d show that kind of dedication on the field-”

“Shut up.”

Teen Dad | Teen Dad Two


Peter ran back home, breathing heavily.

It was around midnight, Aunt May should be asleep.

Peter unlocked the door, opening it carefully, and shutting it quietly behind his back.

Walking back to his room, he was startled when Aunt May was watching him from the hallway.

“May. Wh– what are you doing up this late?”

“I should be asking you the same thing, Peter.”

“I– I was just going out for a walk. That’s all.”

“And why are you going out this late at night?”

“I– I couldn’t sleep, but I’m tired now, I’ll see you in the morning.”

And with that, Peter walked past Aunt May, walking straight to his room.


Getting up later than usual, since it is winter break after all, Peter slept till 9am, usually he wakes up at 6:30 for school.

He got up and walked to the kitchen to get breakfast.

“Mornin’ May.”

“Good morning, look, I need to get some stuff from the store, I’ll be back in an hour or two.”

She said, she grabbed her keys, walking towards the door.

“It’s going to take you one to two hours to get ‘some’ stuff?”

She scoffed, hand on the door knob, “you know how I am.” She laughs, making Peter laugh as well, knowing how she gets distracted and ends up buying everything but what she needed.

She gave Peter a soft smile, “I miss seeing that smile of yours sweetie.” Peter looked down, nodding.

“I do too.”


“Do you think you’ll be okay being by yourself for a couple of days?”

Your mom yelled over the loud sound of her hair dryer.

“Yeah, I’ll be fine.”

“Call May if anything happens, I talked to her the other day.”

“Okay, I will.”

She put the dryer down and turned around, looking at you sitting quietly on the foot of her bed.

“Sweetie,” she said, holding my chin up.

“Still haven’t talked to Peter huh?”

You shook your head no. She sighed, caressing your cheek.

“Don’t look so down baby girl, something will turn up, okay?”

You nodded.


Peter laid on his bed, staring at his phone.

He’s been thinking of when he should call (Y/n). He doesn’t know what’s going on with her anymore. Is she okay? Is she happy? Sad? Still mad at him? Will she ever forgive him? Is she feeling sick at all? His finger hovered over her name. One little tap and he would be calling you.

He let out a sigh, jumping and dropping his phone on his face when it started ringing.

Tony Stark.

He let it go to voicemail. He didn’t want to talk to anyone but (Y/n) right now and he doesn’t know if he can even do that.

Tony Stark Misscall (1)

Tony Stark Voice Mail (1)

He clicked on the voicemail, Tony never calls and it left him curious.

“Hey, Spidey. What happened last night? Did you tell her? I really hope you do make the right decision. Think hard about what’s more important, and make the right decision all right?”

Peter thought hard about it alright.

He still wasn’t ready to be a father, but he still loves (Y/n). He still doesn’t know what to do but all he knows is that he loves you.


An hour or two after your mom left, you felt a little dizzy.

Holding your head, you closed your eyes before passing out on the couch.


Aunt May came home, Peter was passed out on the couch.

“Peter,” she cooed, “wake up honey.”

Peter opens his eyes slowly and props himself up onto his elbows.

“What– what time is it?”

“It’s time for you to wake up. Stop sleeping so much, you didn’t use to be so sleepy all the time.”

“I just haven’t been getting any sleep lately.”

She sat down next to him, he scrunching his legs up to his chest, putting his head on his knees.

“Talk to her.”

“How!”

“Call her, visit her, talk to her when you see her!”

“I– I just can’t May. It’s not as easy as you think.”

“It is as easy as I think Peter. You both are so depressed about being apart. You know how to make that depression go away? BE TOGETHER.”

“But the baby! That’s the only thing I’m afraid of May. I don’t know how to be a father. I’m still a kid.”

She sighs, fully turning to him this time.

“Pete, do you think I was ready to take care of you when your parents passed away?”

She looked straight into his teary brown eyes.

“I was as terrified as you were. But you were my responsibility. You and (Y/n) did what you did and you have to deal with the consequences. I didn’t raise you to be irresponsible.”

Peter had tears streaming down his face, he was silent. May wiped the tears away from his cheeks, and kissed his salty cheeks.

“You’ll be fine Pete, trust me on this. Okay?” Peter nodded.

“Good. I have to go leave again, I have a dinner to go to with some friends. Be good, okay? I brought home some take out if you’re hungry.”

He nodded, still quiet.

She kissed his forehead, “love you.”

“Love you too.”


You woke up a couple hours later, rubbing your head. What happened? You wondered. All you can remember is your mom kissing you goodbye and binge watching Pretty Little Liars afterwards. When you looked down, your eyes open quickly.

You saw some blood, knowing what that meant, you called Aunt May right away.


Peter turns around as he heard a phone ringing. It wasn’t his usual ring tone, so he looked behind him with a confused look. Seeing May’s phone on the table, he sighs.

She left her phone again.

Grabbing the phone, he checked who was calling. Seeing your name popped up on the screen, his eyes goes wide, but he decides to answer anyways. This was his chance to make things right with you again.

“He–”

“Aunt May!” He heard, her voice was shaky and cracking. You can hear her sobbing, panick was also heard in her voice.

“(Y/n–”

“I need to go to the hospital. My– my mom is out right now and– and no one can go with me so if you can– can you meet me there? I– I’m so scared. I’ll text you the address. I wish Peter was here.” You whispered the last part to yourself before you ended the call, but Peter still heard. Guilt formed around his heart. He couldn’t stand hearing you so hurt. He doesn’t know what’s going on but he snapped out of his thoughts once he heard a ding. Looking back at the phone, seeing that you sent the address to the hospital you’re going to, Peter ran out the door in a heartbeat.


You sat in a hospital bed.

Heart pounding in your chest.

Constantly rubbing your hands together.

Your whole body was trembling.

Thoughts running through your mind.

Constantly looking at the door.

Waiting for Aunt May to walk in.

Waiting for the doctor to tell you what you needed to hear.

The longer you wait, the more you tried to convinced yourself that whatever happened, whatever was happening.

Happened for a reason.

Maybe losing the baby, maybe it’s suppose to happen. Maybe it wasn’t a good thing. Maybe it was a reality check. Maybe the baby showed you something you didn’t notice in the relationship you had with Peter. That he didn’t love you as much as you thought. Because, without the baby happening, you wouldn’t realize that him being Spider-Man was more important than him being yours.

11.9.2017// Guys I am in my 4th semester in med school, isnt it wild? Like I remember getting in and writing it on my tumblr and how sweet and supportive all of you were, and now I am almost done with my second year in med school and let me tell you this has been such a crazy experience, like I love it, but it was not what I expected, ofcourse I would change it for nothing in this world, I got my bestfriends here, I think that I “found myself” even though that sounds so cheesy, but university really is something else… 

I am going through my dailies page which you can find on my site, and I am getting a little emotional actually, looking back at the person I was back then and how much I have grown is so weird. I did take a break from tumblr because I did fail exams and it was very difficult to get into that “study mindset” because this is so different than high school and studying is so different aswell so I set a lot of time aside to try to “learn how to study” all over again, because the methods I used in high school which got me A’s does not work here. 

But!! I am back and I just need tumblr, it is my therapy, it is my source of motivation and I just love it, so this time im gonna be on here for real, and not leave, I promise. Hey maybe I can set up a give away soon? What do you guys want me to give away? Stationary or journals? I have done a couple of journals but we are reaching almost the 100K so maybe the give away should be a little more this time? 

Do you guys follow my studygram? @studyspiration (https://www.instagram.com/studyspiration/). 

We Are Young: Deleted Chapter

Throne of Glass High School AU

Note: Here it is, the deleted chapter. This got cut from the actual story because it just didn’t fit with the flow, but I still wanted to share it with you guys. Technically, this chapter would have been chapter 12 - not the Rowaelin date chapter. So all this takes place between chapter 11 and chapter 12. Also, big shout out to @miladyaelin for giving this a quick edit for me! There will most likely still be some mistakes, as this didn’t go through the editing process these chapters normally go though. And some stuff may be repeated as I did add it to the main story, this is a different way. But I still hope you enjoy!

Main Chapter

——————–

Elide was happy to say she’d been feeling a bit better in the past few weeks.

Not 100% better, but better nevertheless.

She still held so many questions. She still went to bed feeling lost and went through her day feeling confused. But her talk with Aedion a few weeks ago really did help. And the couple of talks they’ve had since then weren’t that bad either.

She realized that sexuality isn’t something easy. It’s complex. There were so many things she didn’t know and had to continue to learn. But she was slowly starting to figure out who she was. She was starting to come to her own. Yes, there was still a long road ahead of her, things she still had to open herself up to, but she’d get there in time.

“I feel like I need to be wearing my skates,” Aelin said, gripping the railing as they walked up the front steps of the school. “There’s so much ice I’m scared I may actually fall and break my leg.”

“I’m sure your Uncles would love that,” Elide couldn’t help but laugh, especially as Aelin huffed, a cloud of cold air floating from her nose.

“Katniss, take over for me, this customer is being a pain and is taking forever.”

She grumbles and spins around in her chair, taking a long sip of her soda. “Thom, I’m on my lunch break.”

“Yeah, well, I was supposed to clock out ten minutes ago, but this guy can’t decide on a pair of sneakers. He has about twelve pairs out there,” Thom says, shaking his head. “I’m already late, so please, go out there and help him.”

“Fine,” she sighs, taking one last sip of her drink before standing up. “Which one is he?”

“Didn’t you hear me?” Thom chuckles. “Twelve pairs of shoes. You can’t miss him.”

hi guys, i’m so sorry i haven’t been doing all the drabbles you guys have sent me, i’ve been having a hard time at home theyre still open btw guys love u x

Originally posted by pr0paganda

(For this Charles isn’t in his wheelchair)

No.” Charles voice was firm, startling you. “You’re staying here, Y/N.”

“But-But-But.” You wanted to join the x men on a mission, one that was dangerous. Plus you believed your mutation could help them out tons. “Charles do I need to remind you that I can see and walk through objects, and control things with my mind? You guys need me on this mission!” You yelled angrily.

“My god. Y/N just drop it, you’re not going. And that’s final.” Charles said, turning to leave the room.

You growled, done being treated like a child. You focused your eyes on the rug your boyfriend was walking on, pulling it from under him. Charles fell with a humph.

“Y/N! What the hell was that for?” He growled, standing up and walking towards you.

“I’m not a child, I’m going with you Charles. And you can’t stop me.”

“I’m not gonna let you get yourself killed!” He screamed, his breath hitting your flushed cheeks.

“I’m strong enough to fight!”

Charles laughed bitterly. “No you’re not. You can barely control your mutation. In fact if anything you let your emotions control your mutation. Do I need to remind you why the hell you came to this school in the first place? You set your parents’ house on fire!”

“Technically it wasn’t on fire.” You shot back.

“Of course it wasn’t on fire! You completely blew it up!” Charles threw his hands in the air, voice raw from arguing for so long.

“I’ve come a hell of a way since then, I deserve a chance. I deserve to help.” You didn’t back down, not breaking your intense gaze.

His eyes softened and he looked at you sadly. “My love… just.. please stay.” His voice was no higher than a whisper.

“Why won’t you let me go? Why won’t you give me a chance.”

“Because I’m scared. I’m scared ill lose you. And you’re all I have, all I want and I can’t lose you.”
