i might want to get this calendar then

Day of Atonement

With only few days left till 2x16, I decided to write this post. As you might know, some users are planning to boycott this episode. This episode’s plot is happening during Day of Atonement, a very important day for Jewish people. Actually- the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. I want you to understand the significant of this episode for Jewish people, who get to see their traditions represented on T.V. More than that- we get to see our holiest day represented on T.V, and personally I’ve never seen that happened before. Judaism is often badly portrayed in media, so when we get a Jewish character doing the day’s traditions with his Jewish family- you can’t boycott that. Other than that- the episode was written by a Jewish man, so it is representation off-screen as well. Because most of the non-Jewish users here don’t know about the day and its traditions, and often say wrong stuff in connection with it, I’ve decided to write a short explanation about Day of Atonement, so you’ll understand more about the day and won’t boycott the episode.

Day of Atonement (or Yom Kippur), is the holiest day of the year for Jewish people. On that day, Jews do self-criticism and ask for atonement and forgiveness from God on their sins. It is believed that on that day the fate of the Jewish people and the entire world for the next year is being decided. There are traditions and prohibitions for Jewish people on Yom Kippur. For 25 hours it’s forbidden to eat and drink, to drive, to work, to use water, to use electricity and electronic devices, to wear leather shoes, to use lotions and perfumes and to have sexual relations. The goals of the fasting is not to punish the Jewish people- but to free us from the materiality and try to make humans more like angels without physical needs, so they can focus on the spirituality of the day. Jewish people wear white on Kippur, for purity. The majority of the day Jews are spending together in the synagogues, praying for God. The last meal before the fasting is called “Seuda Mafseket”. That is probably the meal Simon and Maia are attending.

I hope you understand a bit about this day, and why it’s so important for all of us. So I ask you, please, don’t boycott the episode. The importance is tremendous and I don’t want the writers to lower the amount of representation we get. Watch for us- Jewish fans.

Some fun stuff with obstetrics.

Okay so I crunched some numbers re: that panel with Touka’s due date and Yoriko’s notice, and here’s some fun stuff I figured out:

(Credits to @juuuzo and their post for the pic above and for illuminating some things for me!)

x Firstly, I don’t think it takes a genius to glean from this panel that the Touken baby is due 12/28 (which apparently is Ishida’s birthday… making the Ishida the One Eyed Prince?? dundundunnnnn)

x For the Obstetrics nerds: It’s hard to see based on just this panel if Touka really did use Naegele’s rule to figure it out, but if the due date really is 12/28, a couple of the numbers highlighted above (and a few that I squinted at) correspond to the formula. But it’s really hard to tell because Touka’s writing is shit lmao.

x But using some reverse engineering (not really, I just like that term; I used the Qx calculate app), if the due date is 12/28, Touka’s last menstrual period was 3/23.

x This is Yoriko’s execution notice:

x The penalty was placed 4/15, and Kaneki received the notice approximately 4/17, which would be the current date of the story right now. (How did I figure that out? See this post.)

x By simple math, we can estimate Kaneki Jr’s current gestational age as 3 weeks and 4 days. Taking things further, the end of the first trimester will be on 6/15.

x I have the urge to discuss the stage of embryonic development Kaneki Jr is currently in, but 1) ghoul biology might be different, and 2) really? do we really want to get into that? lmao.

x Interestingly, I looked back in the calendars, and comparing Touka’s calendar, the story seems to be taking place in 2016.

Bullet Journaling for School

Hey there, journalers! 

I have been getting a lot of asks about school pages, and I’m ready to share with you the best ways to use your journals for keeping up with your work, tests, and deadlines. Just in time for the school season too! 

1. Get the Right Supplies

Invest in a good journal that works for you. Make sure you get the one that is the right size to carry around from class to class. You don’t want to get one that is too small for fun spreads or too large to fit comfortably in your bag or arms. 

Pens, highlighters, post-its, tabs, tapes. All things you could use for your journal, but again, make sure they are right for you. Depending upon your journal you might not even want highlighters or pens. Colored pencils work just as aesthetically. 

2. Future Log

Creating a future log for your school journal is a must! This will help you with getting ready and plan for exams, essays, important days, homework, and for sports. There are a variety of layouts for this page, but here is my last one.

3. Monthly Spread

Okay, so I’m not currently home where I can show you this in an actual journal. Sorry that it’s on copy paper! But anyhow, you get the idea. A simple calendar spread with icons, monthly goals, and notes for the month. In the icons, I added deadlines, important days, tests/quizzes, essays, practice/game, club, and work. (None of the events I wrote on here are real, this was just an idea to show you how to use it for a school journal.)

4. Weekly Spread

I put seven boxes for each day and added both a notes section and a water intake tracker. It’s super important to stay hydrated! Keep those pretty little brains sparkly. 

5. Daily

I don’t have a picture for this, but I know many people enjoy adding pages for each day. Especially for those in college or away at boarding schools because the workload is just a bit more. You can add daily habit trackers, daily tasks, and notes for each day. 

6. Class Notes

So, don’t laugh, but I made up a notes page to give you an idea of how you could do notes in a bullet journal. Yes, many more google searches could give you a million better looking notes in bullet journals. Also, you can add tabs to your journals for different classes so your notes don’t get mixed up. 

7. Class Schedule

This is actually a little bit like how I had my college schedule set up. Although, I used an app that is no longer on the app store to keep track of my classes. This is kind of how the app was set up. Remember to put the rooms of your classes! So important if you want to not make a fool of yourself by walking into the wrong class. 

8. School Map

If you’re new to the school or university, keeping a map of your school in your journal is very handy. Most schools have their maps available online or in the main office. If they are online, you have a better chance of scaling it down and printing it the right size for your journal pages. 

9. Contact Info

This one I’m kind of on the fence about. Yes, it’s good to have your phone number, email, and name in the journal, but I wouldn’t put anything more than that. No addresses. There are some crazy people out there. This is only for in the case you leave it someplace and have lost it. 

HOLY CRAP GUYS! IT’S A 3000 FOLLOWERS GIVE AWAY!

So as a huge thank you to you guys (i never thought this would happen) I am doing a give away!… kinda? haha.

Basically! If you like/reblog this post you’ll be in the running to request some art from me! I’ll pick two people at random by next week and you can get some art! Drawn by me! Whatever you want! (within reason). Ayyyyyy. (you have to follow me though. It’s a follower give away. That’s how this works).

BUT IF YOU DON’T GET CHOSEN IT’S OK!

Mark your calendars because on the 7th of May at 9:00 am Brisbane, Australia time I’ll be hosting a livestream and Q and A!

So I’ll be working on some bending moments panels and answering any questions you guys might have. These could be comic questions, or we can just shit talk Voltron haha. Whatever you guys want. 

I actually was gonna do it tomorrow, but then I remembered it was my birthday so I was like “mmmmmmm nah I think my present to myself will be sleeping” haha. 

HOPE TO SEE YOU GUYS THERE! I’LL POST A LINK ON MY BLOG ON THE MORNING OF THE STREAM!

I'm so excited about the calendar video!!! :D You think it will be good??

yessssss god i really hope phil was happy with all the footage and it turns into something. i feel like him teasing it means that it’s likely it will turn into something, bc phil is definitely not someone to even halfway announce or discuss an idea if he’s not mostly sure that it’s going to happen. but im thinking it’ll be a while before we get it? i imagine they might want to use it to help promo the calendar itself, and if theyre in particular outfits/makeup or whatever, then they def would have to wait till they launch it or at least announce the theme so that they don’t spoil anything. and since phil said that putting the actual calendar together could take quite a while, im not holding my breath for that footage any time in the coming weeks (it’ll probs be mid to late november i think, bc they do obvi need to get it out before the holiday season comes around since thats when everyone likes to gift calendars and such.) 

but yes i do think that if and when we get it, it will be pretty amazing. i mean phil seemed so genuinely enthusiastic and happy with the process of shooting it and with the theme, and im sure that energy would translate to whatever on-set moments he decided to film. i am so here for them just goofing around and being excited in the setting of a more professional endeavor (i imagine it will feel something like the making of tabinof vlog actually, esp those parts when theyre on set for the release trailer or on set for the photoshoot and playing w like curling irons and making fun of each other getting their makeup done and stuff ahhaha) 

Imagine having a baby with Sonny Carisi

(A/N: Sorry for the long wait, I re-worte this whole thing to make it ten times better and consequently much longer. I don’t know why but I’m currently obsessed with babies. That’s a lie. I do know why, my cousin is pregnant and I’m super excited. I’m definitly going to make continuations with this little family I’ve created. I love it so much. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It;s just so cute and fluffy. Ahh.)

Imagine having a baby with Sonny Carisi

“No.” you stated, shaking your head.

“What?” Sonny asked his voice a mixture of confusion and shock.

“I said no.” you repeated.

“What do you mean?” he questioned.

“I mean what I said, no. I won’t do it.” you states once again before turning away from him.

“Why not?” he asked, getting up and spinning you back round to face him.

“Because you’re only asking because I’m pregnant.” you informed.

“That’s not true.” he tried to reassure.

“Yes it is.” you argued, “Why are you asking now today then? What’s so special about today?”

He didn’t have an answer for you. He face screwed up trying to come up with a believable answer that would satisfy you. You decided to put him out of his misery.

“Exactly, you’re only asking because we found out we’re having a baby.” you confirmed.

“Y/N, I’m asking because I love you and want to spend the rest of my life with you.” he tried to reason, grabbing hold of your hands.

“Sonny, it’s not that I don’t want to marry you. Of course I do. I love you more than I love myself. Which you know is an extremely hard thing to do with a narcissist like me.” you joked trying to be serious for comedic effect, “But I didn’t want you to ask like this. Like you’re obliged too.”

“I don’t feel that way…” he began.

“I know you don’t but that’s what everyone going to think.” you reminded.

“Since when do you care?” he questioned skeptical.

“I don’t care what they think. I care about how I feel. I don’t want to get married now especially after finding out we’re having a baby. It’s too much effort.” you sighed, nursing your temple as the mere thought of it was giving you a migraine.

“Alright,” he agreed reluctantly, “When do you want me to ask?”

“A year.” you stated.

“A year?” he questioned.

“One year.” you repeated for reassurance.

“And you’ll actually say yes in one years time?” he asked jokingly.

“Depends on how cute this kid is.” you winked.

A smile broke out on his face, chuckling he grabbed hold of you and pull you close. Putting his arms around your waist. Instinctively, you put yours around his neck.

“If they look anything like you. It’s practically grantee.” he whispered into your ear. leaning down.

“And if they look anything like you. God save their soul.” you teased, shaking your head playfully and giving him a wink.

A flash of annoyance flashed across Sonny’s face as you broke into laughter. After trying to be miffed he eventually gave in. Leaning down and placing a kiss on your chuckling lips.

You had been in a relationship with Sonny for four years and been partners at SVU for four and a half at that point. You had just celebrated your forth anniversary of dating with a low-key dinner at your shared apartment that you two had bought two years pervious, a few weeks ago. Up until yesterday you thought that was going to be the latest milestone for a while. That was until yesterday.

You had found out you were expecting a baby. You’d found out together. You’d been throwing up non-stop all night the day before yesterday. In fact you had to take the day off as you hadn’t gotten any sleep. Sonny had gone to work and you were at home trying to rest and get better. It wasn’t until you looked at the calendar on the fridge. That the you considered the thought that it might have not been that two day old chicken and mayonnaise sandwich you’d stolen off Finn that was making you sick.

Sonny called you about midday to see how you were doing and to see if you needed anything.

“Is there anything else you want?” he asked after you told him that you’d run out of bread and you wanted him to bring home chicken soup for dinner.

“I don’t want you to get your hopes up but I think I might be pregnant.” you practically whispered down the line.

Hi everyone! I’ve recently been really inspired by a number of studyblrs I follow, so I decided to make one myself. Before I post any spreads, I figured a great way to get started might be to introduce myself a bit and give a shoutout to the blogs that have inspired me to start this. 

My name is Ellie, and I am a 21 year old college student majoring in English Language & Literature, focusing mostly on creative writing. Not only do I want to use this blog as a catalogue of some of my favorite spreads I’ve seen online, but I want to start some of my own. This blog will include the following:

  • Weekly calendars to keep myself organized
  • Character/setting inspiration pages for the book I am writing
  • Recipes for cheap college meals my girlfriend and I make together
  • Lecture and discussion notes for my fall semester courses
  • Themed spreads by request from followers

As I am new to bullet journaling, I am not sure yet how many spreads I will contribute to this blog each week, but here’s to hoping I keep the content coming! 

A special shoutout to the following blogs for helping me along the way, whether you knew it or not…

jeonghan + flowers

Stepping out of the flower shop, Jeonghan looked contently at the bouquet in his hand. It consisted of three of your favorite flowers, a few of each, as well as some added green leaves and baby’s breaths.

He was giddy for the whole trip home, and even when he opened the door to your shared apartment and saw you sitting on the couch, he was unable to wipe the happy grin off his face. “I’m home.”

“Welcome back,” you said cheerfully and got up from the couch to go to the door to greet Jeonghan. Once you saw the bouquet of flowers in his right hand, however, you slowed your steps.

“These are for you,” Jeonghan stated the obvious and handed the flowers to you, his features graced by his smile, and you nodded slowly.

“What are you making up for this time?” you asked with a playful smile and squinted eyes, to which Jeonghan replied with a laugh and gave you a soft kiss with his right hand on your lower back.

“Nothing, I promise. I just passed by a flower shop on my way home and thought I might as well buy some for the most beautiful flower in the world,” he said, purposefully cheesily, and grinned against your lips. You giggled and patted his chest, giving him another soft, loving kiss before leaving to get a vase for the flowers.

He looked at you with a warm smile on his lips, as unwilling as ever to tell you that on his calendar, there was a red heart on that day, carefully drawn by him.

Two years prior, you had told him you loved him for the very first time, and while Jeonghan didn’t want to particularly show just how big of a deal that had been and still was to him, he found the day special enough for at least a pretty bouquet of flowers.

After all, that day had been one of the most important ones in his whole life.

Dinoween, Dinovember, & Dino Winter Holidays 2017
Prompt Sign-Up!

As requested, here’s the prompt sign up sheet! Also, I’ve changed my icon for the festive time of year

I decided to do all the late-month art prompts in one sheet (so Dinoween, Dinovember, & Dino Winter Holidays) for ease of use. Also, because Dinovember often gets the shaft, and I feel reminding people of its existence would be helpful. 

Anyone can edit and add their name, but I have the original calendar to myself, so any changes to the prompts will be changed back. 

You can sign up to draw, write, make up poetry, songs, write informative things, whatever you want!!!! Just do something creative!!! And you can sign up for the other months too, just know that it won’t be a while until then! 

I have 10 sign up slots because if we get past that point for any one prompt, at that point you might as well just do what you want 

November, you’ll note, has three special holidays and mostly is “dinosaurs frolicking in the autumn.” If you have ideas for cultural-specific holidays (or any sort of November holiday) for the month, send them my way via an ask or fanmail or whatever!!! I’ll be sure to add them. 

[Note: I will not be running Dinomas this year for personal reasons. My partner, @plokool, will be doing so through A-Dinosaur-A-Day (so it’ll still be on this blog), but I will not be running it directly. I will be running Dinokkah and the Palaeoblr Secret Santa (which I might rename. Secret Sinosauropteryx? Stay tuned). Thanks!]  

What, another book review already?  Yes, because there were actually two new Yuri!!! on Ice books that came out this week!  This time, I’m reviewing Yuri!!! on ICE Koushiki Guidebook Yuri!!! on Life (Yuri!!! on ICE Official Guidebook Yuri!!! on Life), published by Fusosha.  This book focuses on the figure skating aspect of the show, and there’s some stuff about real skaters as well.  So if you’re a fan of the anime and also a skating enthusiast, this one’s for you! (If you’re looking for the other book instead, you can read my review of Yuri!!! on ICE Official Fanbook GO YURI GO!!! in my previous post.)

This book is not available in English or French, but there are plenty of pictures (mostly full color, and there are a few black-and-white sketches as well).  The dust jacket is also removable, and the alternate cover art hidden underneath is similar to the image on the jacket, except it’s zoomed out and the three characters are spaced a bit farther apart so you can see their individual poses better.  As for skaters other than the three main characters, don’t worry, they’re in this book as well, so you can enjoy their style… JJ Style!  And Emil style, and Michele style, and so on:


Keep reading for the rest of the book review, plus a few more pictures!

hi nbv! my boyfriend is in law schoo full-timel, and i'm the one with the less-taxing job and lifestyle for now. obviously, each person's wants and needs are different, but do you have any tips for The Care And Keeping Of Your Law Student? What do you wish someone would do for you? Thank you!

I don’t know if you’re living together or not, but honestly the things that come to mind immediately are domestic—I would love someone to cook for me and do my laundry. Both are so necessary to daily life, but they take so much time. Rather than use up my energy, I end up putting laundry off for weeks and eat terrible food. I just don’t have time or the brainspace to spare unless it’s an emergency.

If you’re not living together or aren’t at that point of your relationship, then I think the biggest thing would be—work with your Law Student’s schedule and give them as much advance notice as possible. For me, between school, work, journals, etc. my free time is limited, and I generally fill what time I do have with homework/studying. 

So when a friend texts me randomly on a Thursday night to ask if I want to go out, my first reaction is no, I have work I have to get done. Whereas a friend (who knows me very well) texted me weeks ago and said she was going to be in town, did I want to go to dinner Sunday night? To which I happily replied, yes, of course, put it on my calendar, and planned my whole weekend around seeing her. 

You can’t plan everything in life, but understanding that your Law Student has a lot on their plate and might not be able to drop everything for just anything is key.

Also, though I hope this bit of advice isn’t necessary, please also make sure that your needs are taken care of, and that your Law Student is not taking advantage of your understanding and generosity. It is perfectly okay to tell your Law Student, “I’m happy to do your laundry, but you need to be responsible for cleaning the bathroom and vacuuming the carpet,” OR “this event is really important to me, I am telling you with plenty of advance notice so you can make time for it,” OR “you can pick the night but it’s non-negotiable that we do something together once a week, even if it’s just a netflix night.”

I definitely have been known to use “oh man, I have so much work” as an excuse to turn down social invitations or skip events I didn’t want to attend. The truth is that they simply weren’t priorities for me.

Law school is a priority, of course, but so are you and your relationship. Don’t let one distract entirely from the other.

“We just realized that we have you doing two classes at once, so we’ll have someone else do the planner class while you do the party since we don’t want you getting overwhelmed. I’m sorry, we’re doing that a lot lately.”

Okay, A-

The planner class has ONE person signed up for it and she may not even show. The party has at least ten kids, all of which are definitely showing. But sure. Giving me the one that’s definitely going to have more people is apparently the less overwhelming option.

And B-

For you to notice that maybe I might be a little overwhelmed, it took the realization that you had me covering shifts for three different people, forgetting that we had an event that’s been on the calendar for three months, four reschedulings, and a rant. 

Just because I am capable of handling this kind of workload doesn’t mean you should be scheduling me back to back 8.5 hour shifts of it.

The Next Chapter

Part Three in the “Monsters” Universe, requested by numerous people. <3

I’d been feeling bad for nearly three weeks now; nausea would come and go, but the busy schedule that came with my life had gotten in the way, and I didn’t really think about it too much. I was exhausted, too, but with a four year old, and a…Spencer, that wasn’t anything new. Of course I was tired.

Spencer had been living with Aidan and I since before he got shot, but now that we were officially engaged, we both felt that it was time to get a house that was ours. Something that we could spend our lives in, to raise Aidan and maybe even a couple of other little ones at some point.

The house we’d chosen was relatively new, two stories, with a sweeping staircase, four bedrooms, and lots of windows. We both loved it, and Aidan seemed to as well.

But now, Spencer was home from his latest trip, and we’d finished moving into the house we’d just bought together. The downside of my schedule settling down a bit was that Spencer suddenly had much more opportunity to notice that I was sick.

I tried to be discreet, but when you live with a profiler, that’s not really an option. I looked up from where I was kneeling in front of the toilet to find Spencer watching me, looking concerned.

“Are you okay?” he asked. I nodded and stood up. He moved aside so that I could lean over the sink to wash out my mouth.

“(Y/N),” he said, stopping me from leaving the bathroom. I could tell by his tone of voice that I was not going anywhere without some answers.

“Have you gotten sick before now?” he asked.

“Of course I have, Spencer,” I said. “Everyone gets sick.”

I could tell by the look on his face that I wasn’t about to get by with that.

“Okay,” I relented. “Yes, I’ve been nauseous off and on for about three weeks,” I told him.

“Have you been tired?” he asked.

“I run around after a four-year-old every day,” I said. “Yeah, I’ve been tired.”

“I mean, more than usual,” he clarified.

“Yeah, I have,” I admitted.

I saw his eyes flicker toward the small calendar that I keep on the back of the bathroom door.

“I know it’s been hectic lately,” he began, “but when’s the last time you had your period?”

I froze.

It hadn’t occurred to me, not even once, but now that Spencer pointed it out to me, it seemed like such an obvious answer.

“I-it’s been almost two months,” I answered. “I didn’t even notice.”

“I thought that might be the case,” he said. “Do you think you could be?”

“Well, it’s definitely a possibility,” I replied.

“Do you want me to go and get a test?” he asked, and I found myself nodding my head. He left, and returned from the store a few minutes later, armed with various kinds of at-home pregnancy tests.

“I only really needed one, Spence,” I said.

“I know, but I didn’t know which one to get,” he replied. “Besides, statistically, the more tests you take, the better chance you have of getting an accurate result.” I smiled slightly.

“Alright,” I agreed. “I’m going to go take some of these, and then we’ll look at the results together.”

When I emerged from the bathroom, I found him pacing the kitchen floor. He looked up at me, his eyes wild.

“(Y/N), what if you are pregnant?” he asked. “What if you are, and we’re having a baby? I mean, I know we already have Aidan, but I wasn’t his dad when he was a baby. I do have two godsons, but that’s different because they’re JJ’s kids. I don’t take care of them everyday. It’s not my job to raise them to be good and kind, and the earliest stages of life have proven to have a profound impact on a person’s life, so I don’t want to mess that up. I mean, what if our baby grows up to be a serial killer? Or schizophrenic?” It appeared that the thought had just occurred to him, because I watched what little color he had left drain from his face.

“Oh, god, (Y/N), I could’ve passed on a genetic predisposition that causes our baby to be schizophrenic! I don’t want that for our child, that disease is unbelievably difficult to live with. Not to mention the countless other genetic predispositions either one of us could pass on without knowing it. What if-”

I held up my hands, finally unable to handle it any longer. I moved toward him.

“Spencer, Spencer, honey, stop,” I said, reaching out to pull him into a hug. I held him there for a few seconds until he fell silent and I felt him relax against me.

“Spence,” I began, “we don’t even know whether or not I’m pregnant yet,” I reminded him. “Let’s hold off on the freaking out, okay?” I pulled back and offered him a small smile, reaching up to gently card my fingers through his hair.

“Besides,” I continued, “you are going to be an amazing father. You already are,” I said. “Aidan loves you, and some days, I don’t know how I ever did it without you. And I know that having a baby is different, but I am one hundred percent certain that you will be absolutely incredible with our baby. So just calm down, alright?”

Spencer took a deep breath and I smiled slightly at him.

“You okay?” I asked, and he nodded.

“Yeah. Sorry.”

“Let’s go see those tests, then,” I said. He held my hand tightly as we headed for the bathroom. My heart was hammering inside my chest.

The question Spencer posed held real significance. Even though I had calmed him down, it was on my mind.

What if I was pregnant?

I wanted to have a baby with Spencer, that much I knew. And really, when I thought about it, now was actually not a bad time to do it. We’d just moved to a home with plenty of space, after all. As we prepared to find out if we were going to have a baby, I suddenly realized that I was hoping for a positive.

“Ready?” Spencer asked. I nodded, and he opened the door. We moved to stand together, facing the vanity, where the four tests I’d taken were laying out, waiting. We both seemed to hold our breath as we looked down at them.

Positive, positive, positive, and positive.

All four tests unanimously displayed our fate.

“They’re positive,” Spencer breathed. I looked up at him.

“We’re having a baby,” I said. He didn’t react for a few seconds, but then I watched a smile split his face as he reached for me, pulling me close into him.

“We’re having a baby,” he repeated.

“Spence?” I asked, pulling back slightly. “Are you good? You’re okay with this?”

“I’m better than okay with it,” he replied. “I’m ecstatic, (Y/N). I love you so much.”

“I love you too, Spence,” I laughed as he tugged me back to his chest.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to drop in and hope you’re all having a great pride month. If you haven’t already, you should check out the calendar and make sure to celebrate your respective pride day(s)!

Also wanted to apologize for not being around much lately, but I’ve been incredibly busy lately. I haven’t really had time to manage the blog. I might be able to get some non-request related asks, but at this time I still don’t think I’ll be able to fill out any more requests. They’re still in my inbox though, don’t worry. :) 

Marinette and The Adrien Schedule

I just had a brainwave.

Most Miraculers know of Marinette’s ‘Adrien Schedule’ and, like many people, I found that little fact pretty creepy. I get that Marinette is supposed to be crushing so hard and tends to go a little overboard but I’ve never met anyone who has their crushes schedule, celebrity or otherwise. Even Alya is a bit disturbed by this. It also seems completely at odds with the idea that Marinette likes Adrien for Adrien, not The Adrien Agreste™ (as we see in ‘Origins’). It seems more like something a (very very rabid) fangirl would do.

Then as I was reading this post, @thewalkingweapon pointed something interesting out when dating ‘Chronogirl’. It’s on the schedule.

Why would Marinette include that on her ‘Adrien Schedule’? I mean, sure he was there but the main event was Alix and Kim’s bet. 

So lightbulb moment.

What if it’s not ‘Adrien’s Schedule’?

What if it’s Marinette’s Calendar with Adrien’s Schedule on it? (Which frankly makes a lot more sense and is a lot less creepy.) (And yes, there is a difference.)

Adrien is a busy kid. Modelling, fencing, Chinese, basketball and other events. Poor cat son barely has time to breathe, let alone go to say; A class bet.

What if Marinette got a hold of Adrien’s Schedule (maybe from him or Nino) so she could organise some things around his schedule

A few other things like the ‘Dinner with Thomas’, ‘Dinner with Young Sun’ and ‘volunteering at the abandoned kitten centre’ could actually be Marinette’s schedule. 

On March 16, there’s a line that translates to ‘Out with Friends’. 

On April 13, a line translates to ‘Appointment with his Father’ (while not entirely out of the realm of possibilities for Adrien to have appointments with dear ol’ Gabriel [which frankly is just plain sad] it seems more likely that it’s Marinette who has the appointment since ‘Mr Pigeon’ happens on May 18. So it might be a combination of wishful thinking and an animation error). 

May 23, ‘Dinner with Adrien’. Which happens after ‘Mr Pigeon’ and most likely, after the photo shoot.

(I sat and watched the scene when the schedule first appears. You can’t really get a clear view of what was written on that schedule.)

Marinette can be forgetful (ie, forgetting to sign Adrien’s present) so having a pull-down calendar isn’t that much of stretch. I know that I tend to put things I wouldn’t think about often (like birthdays and going out) on my calendar rather than things I would think about like due dates for assignments. Marinette might have Adrien’s schedule so that when she finally stops stuttering around him, she already know when he might be available (like when she wants to ask him to the movies which is how we found out about it in the first place!). When taking that into account, the whole schedule thing doesn’t seem so creepy. 

If one of my friends had that kind of packed schedule, I’d ask for it so I’d know when they could be free.

I don’t think the pull-down Schedule is totally because of Marinette’s crazy crush. Part of it might just be her being a good friend and planning in advance when Adrien might be free to hang out. Like he said in ‘Origins’, “I’ve never been to school before. I’ve never had friends. It’s all sort of new to me.” Wouldn’t any good friend try to work around his busy schedule?

i really want to start bullet journaling but i have no idea how to get started, do you have any tips for beginners? thx so much :)

hello! my bullet journal is kind of trash and i’m still experimenting with an entry style that i like, but here goes:

1. start whenever you want. a lot of people think they have to start at the beginning of the school year or the calendar year. that’s not true! it might be a bit easier to start at the beginning of a month tho, bc then you can start with a monthly setup.

2. use whatever notebook you want. you really don’t need a “brand name” notebook (like a moleskine or leuchtturm)!! personally, I use the essentials A5 grid notebook, which is rlly great. 

3. if you’re unsure, go with dot grid or grid. i have a grid notebook, which is super helpful for drawing lines and centering layouts. dot grid notebooks are also pretty popular because the dots are less obtrusive than lines and you can do detailed art and calligraphy and stuff without worrying about grid lines. personally, that doesn’t bother me at all tho. lined and blank notebooks can also work, but it takes more effort to center things and i’m lazy lol.

4. don’t stress about it! there are a ton of bullet journals that are super artsy online and tbh when I first looked at them after starting my bullet journal I felt really bad bc I can’t do that kind of handwriting or calligraphy or art. don’t fall into that trap. your bullet journal is an extension of YOUR style, not that account on tumblr or instagram. it’s okay if your calligraphy is less than perfect when you’re first starting out, or if your handwriting is a mess, or if your art isn’t polished and perfect. just stick with it, and you’ll eventually develop a style that you like!

5. it’s okay to copy layouts. honestly when I first started out, I had no idea what kind of layouts would work for me. I couldn’t come up with one I liked myself, so I tried using the layouts that worked for other people. at first I felt super guilty and bad about being so uncreative. don’t think that! you’ll have no idea what works for you if you don’t try out different layouts. and using ones that work for other people is a good way to do that!

6. don’t feel pressured to doodle or make it perfect. your bullet journal is supposed to help you be more productive. if a simple one works best for you, then do that. personally, I’m more productive when I don’t decorate, but doing calligraphy is really fun for me, so during my breaks I like to letter in my journal.

that’s about all i’ve got! if you want some high quality advice, check out @studyign‘s youtube channel; she has a lot of bujo videos on there which were super helpful for me!
