i need more time to learn

Since I am not happy with the twins’ arc (forgotten in my opinion for Kentin’s one), I needed to come back to them a little more. So, here is a quick moodboard based on the episode 36 of MCL, which was though so promising about Armin’s personality and his complexity.

I wish we could have one more episode focused on them and their relation with Evan, before including of Kentin. We should have the time to learn more about Evan, their parents, the feelings of the twins about the whole story, not only about the bad influence their big brother has on Kentin (it’s a family business, why do you have to be embedded now, wait your turn). For me, they didn’t receive a proper end to their story, and I hope it will be finally done in the episode 38. 

What’s your opinion ?

anonymous asked:

What if you messed things up with "the one"? Do people have more than one "the one"?

Oh most definitely. I cant tell you how many times I looked at my former partners and thought “This is gonna be the one I marry. This is everything I need. This is it,” and then it just wasn’t. I was crushed but I learned so much and that’s what you have to do. That’s why it happens. You fall in love with “the one” to learn why they aren’t really “the one” and then move on to better yourself and prepare for when you truly do find whatever you’re looking for. Its just so important that you let it happen naturally instead of trying to force something, and don’t go into anything with ill-spirits. Go in with the knowledge you have equipped yourself with but use it as necessary. Don’t blame the new person for the past mistakes. Don’t hold them to that.

Things I Wish I Knew Early On

I’m entering my junior year of college and have been creating a list of things I wish I knew earlier than now, like back in middle school or high school. Learn from me with these things, and feel free to add-on whatever you think fits!

  1. Buy Victoria’s Secret underwear and bras. The quality is way better than anything else and definitely worth the money.
  2. Go to the movies by yourself. It may seem weird at first but it really isn’t. Plus you don’t talk anyway. Treat yo self.
  3. Begin saving money early on. Save it all up. Travel with the savings.
  4. Don’t waste all your money on cheap clothes. Don’t solely shop at stores like H&M and Forever 21. Get the latest trends from there and that’s it.
  5. Spend more money for higher quality clothes. Especially for jeans. But don’t buy $200 jeans. $50-$100 is plenty.
  6. Work hard. Get a job. Even if it’s crappy. The experience (and money) is important.
  7. Study hard. Even if it sucks. I regret not trying harder in high school and am pushing myself more now in college (thus this studyblr). Learn all the things.
  8. Simple basic items for clothes look cleaner and are easier. Don’t wear tons of patterns.
  9. Buy yourself a flannel. A good, soft one too. Flannels are amazing.
  10. If someone doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, don’t spend time with them. It’s not worth it.
  11. Don’t keep tons of knick knacks. You don’t need them.
  12. Keep a decorative box and put small memories in them each time you do things. Ticket stubs, wrist bands, fliers. Then when it’s full, go through it and enjoy all the memories. Then, throw them out after and start over.
  13. You don’t owe anyone anything. No explanations. No apologies. (Except maybe your family). When you choose to give them those things, it will mean more because you will actually mean it and want to mend your relationship.
  14. Watch the sunset. It’s fucking beautiful.
  15. If you are not comfortable, don’t do it. Leave the situation.
  16. Learn the balance between school, work, social, and personal lives. Put equal time into all four. Even your personal life.
  17. You are your own best friend and will have your own back, so spend time with yourself. Treat yourself (but not too often) and enjoy your own company.
  18. Talk to yourself. It is good to be able to have a conversation with yourself and think things through fully.
  19. Sometimes you have to be impulsive. It takes just three seconds of spontaneity to get yourself out of your comfort zone. Sometimes this means making new friends or overcoming a fear.
  20. Life will tear you down sometimes. It is okay to cry. But just remember, when you hit rock-bottom, there’s only up from there.

Aries: Youve made it so far. You can see the scars you’re overcoming. Ive never been more proud.take time and celebrate. You earned it.

Taurus: Recconect. Get back in touch with your roots so you know where to go when things really start to change. When the wind really comes howling in.

Gemini: Take a breath. Someone needing some space doesnt mean they hate you. Sometimes people just need time. Give them that. I promise their worth it in the end.

Cancer: dont be afraid to step up. To take control of a situation.I know youre scared. I am too. But you wont know wjat youre really capable of if you never try it. Youre destined for greatness, my dear.

Leo: Where is your voice? Your strong opinion? Did they flee you now? You cant just be loud when it is convient. You need to speak up for what you believe in. Even when it means making sacrifices.

Virgo: dont be scared. Youve been through so much. The time for fear has passed.theres no more monsters to fear. Youve finally found where you fit right in. Enjoy it.

Libra: Stop expecting doom. Learn to live in the moment. Dont worry about how the futures gonna play out. Just accept that this moment is the best one youve got and cherish.

Scorpio: trust in your people. Youve made good allies. Made good friends. Fall back and trust that no matter what they will be thwre to help you pick up all the pieces. Whatever may come.

Sagittarius: You don’t need to shine brighter then the sun all the time. Its okay to be sad.  Its okay to let the optimism go and take in reality. As brutal and painful as it is.

Capricorn: build walls. Protect yourself. You want to fix everyone and that is so sweet. But you cant keep sacraficing yourself to do it. Grab a sword and fight. Please. I cant lose you too.

Aquarius:  Whatever happens is what is meant to happen. It may not be your plan, but have faith in the universe. Its guiding you to exactly where you need to be. Its all gonna pay off in the end.

Pisces: Stop jumping all over the place. Find a goal and stick to it. You want something with all your heart, only problem is its something new every week. If you could maintain you could accomplish the world. You have it in you. I know you do.

—  This weeks horoscope

I’m no expert—I’m hearing and my understanding of American Sign Language is extremely limited—so please feel free to correct/add on to this! But I was just really struck by (and loved!) Elisa’s “F U” to Strickland in the above scene, which was featured at the end of the newly-released Red Band trailer for The Shape of Water.

Here, Elisa is literally signing “F” and “U” from the ASL alphabet, but what makes this so striking is that, by doing so, she’s not exactly speaking ASL—she’s fingerspelling English. 

ASL is a completely separate language from spoken/written English, and fingerspelling is pretty much only used if there are no ASL equivalents for what needs to be conveyed, such as in the case of names. (In fact, when I was learning ASL, my teacher waited a while before teaching us the alphabet because she didn’t want us fingerspelling English instead of actually trying to sign!)

So the fact that Elisa uses fingerspelling here, when there are other ways in ASL to convey the idea of “fuck you,” says a lot. It says even more when you consider how she’s fingerspelling, since her fingerspelling here is not how a deaf person/someone who speaks ASL would typically fingerspell. 

‘Cause fingerspelling? It’s fast. Extremely fast. Each letter flows smoothly into the next. When you fingerspell, it should be an incredibly fluid motion.

But here? That’s 110% not the case. Elisa is slow and measured. She holds out each letter nice and long. It’s the kinda way you’d fingerspell to someone learning ASL—and actually, my teacher would say to not even do that. If you slow down so much for them all the time, they’ll never be able to keep up with real ASL!

So, this scene? This scene with Elisa fingerspelling something that doesn’t need to be fingerspelled, in an incredible, deliberate, slower-than-college-WiFi pace? Well, Elisa is doing more than just dissing Strickland—she’s absolutely taunting him. She’s saying, “I’m speaking your language. I dare you to understand me.”

And she knows that he won’t. She’s speaking crystal clearly, no stuttering, no hesitance, no nothing, and Strickland can’t even be damned to attempt the basic ASL alphabet because he would never, ever try to understand anything different from him.

And Elisa knows this and completely, totally rubs it in his bigoted face.

I had someone ask me via message on where to start in regards to adopting an “unadoptable” dog, and we had a rather pleasant conversation, but I feel like something needs to be said in public on this blog due to my history of having owned such a creature.

Ethical shelters and rescues do not label dogs unadoptable for no reason, in nearly all cases. There is something about the dog that will determine it being an extremely poor fit for 99% of homes that would be interested, and typically that 1% would need to make tremendous amounts of sacrifice in order to successfully own them. As nice as it sounds- wanting to give a dog everyone else has given up on a home- ethical rescues and shelters have a responsibility to take care of ALL of the dogs in their care and to not endanger those they adopt to or the general public with their adoptions. Taking in unadoptable dogs and keeping them until that 1% person shows up takes vast amounts of money away from perfectly adoptable dogs and ends up killing the friendly, healthy, young dogs that are deemed “more likely to be adopted”. Don’t believe me?

Someone I know from dobermantalk stopped fostering for her rescue when they took in 2 heartworm positive senior beagles to foster from a high kill shelter and left the young healthy beagle that had been surrendered with the older pair. The “adoptable” dog never got a foster. He also never got adopted. When his time was up, he was euthanized. The older pair did not survive their heartworm treatment. Three dogs died because of a focus on unadoptable dogs. Who does that help?

About five years ago, a woman took in two seriously dog aggressive presa canarios to foster. What was left of her body was found several days after the fact- she had been torn to pieces. It was hard for the authorities to determine if the presas had done the deed or if her personal dogs, one “pit bull” bbm and one frenchie, had contributed, but they guessed that the presas, two intact males known for engaging in serious fights with other dogs, had begun to fight and redirected on her when she tried to break them up. Due to their size, they would have overwhelmed her quickly, especially if the other two dogs joined in the frenzy. From there it’s hard to tell what bites were inflicted post-mortum, when the dogs ran out of food and turned to the only available source of meat, and what bites caused her death. Reports from those who found her described the scene as a bloodbath. All four dogs were euthanized. Who does that help?

A small breed puppy mill rescue dog I personally knew, deemed unadoptable for her extreme fear issues, was taken in by a well meaning family member. In a very short amount of time, this family member had been bitten multiple times for offenses as minor as walking by the dog while she was sleeping. Eventually, the dog slipped her harness after spooking due to a loud noise, ran into the road, and was killed instantly by a car. Obliterated. In front of her owner. Who does that help?

Skoll was a dog that had been failed by everyone in his short life. He’d come from known abuse and had clear abandonment issues. He had terrible health and his fear of people and his learned behavior of biting to make the scary things go away were ingrained into him long before he came to me. I gave him a chance anyway, I couldn’t sit by and watch a young dog be killed for something that wasn’t his fault. He mauled me without provocation and I euthanized him two months into our time together. He should have been euthanized on take in- he had a long, long list of documented bites well before he ever came to me, though I didn’t know it at the time. Who does that help?

Instead of focusing on these unadoptable dogs, there is a better solution. If you want to feel like you’re making a difference, find an ethical rescue or shelter and foster! Transport! Volunteer your photography skills! Learn their temperament and health testing process and volunteer there too! Make goods to sell at fundraisers and auctions! Organize a community donation pool! There are so many things you can do for dogs in need that aren’t things that, more often than not, end up with the dog dying anyway. But wanting to adopt a dog labeled, for good reason, unadoptable? Especially if you are not experienced in intense or extreme issues, temperament or health wise, in dogs? You are asking for a lot of heartbreak.

Adopt the adoptable dogs. Accept that we cannot save every unwanted dog. Accept that not every unwanted dog SHOULD be saved. It’s not the dogs’ faults, but neither is it the public’s for not being able to deal with these sorts of issues.

For SNS summer week: post 699 canon divergence

I don’t know, I just really like the idea of the boys in the anbu (under the hokage). So before Sasuke feels comfortable back in Konoha, whenever he finds himself alone and cornered, Naruto always swoops in! (He just knows, man, he just knows!) And every time, Sasuke berates him for it (as does Tsunade, hehe).

Then I like to imagine Sasuke misses Naruto too much and takes long visits in Konoha (after Naruto reforms it a bit). He usually doesn’t wear the anbu garb but he will sometimes. Basically, Sasuke is the Hokage’s main security like when they go to Kage gatherings and every Kage has two body guards, but Naruto only needs one (Sasuke wouldn’t trust a second anyways :P). And he likes to act super possessive of Naruto *u*.

Naruto: Erm… why is everyone being so awkward…?

Sasuke: …

Naruto: Sasuke… have you been scaring our allies? And our potential friends?!

Sasuke: What?… I’m not doing anything.

It makes me sad, that people don’t see the difference between someone who is multilingual because of their background and someone who spent years and years of working hard to learn foreign languages. 

As someone who can communicate in four languages without actually having to try hard and could become fluent in them by just spending some time studying…I could never EVER tell a monolingual person who tries to learn one/a couple more languages that they “are not that special lol ” or that they “are already late and shouldn’t even bother”, or that they “should get over themselves, speaking/learning a foreign language is not that hard”, or anything else that might discourage them or make it seem like what they are doing is not the coolest thing ever. Learning languages when you are older and need to put in conscious effort is hard and sometimes tedious (especially when you only spoke one language your whole life).

So if you are someone who grew up in a place where most people speak one, maybe two languages, please don’t let people from multilingual countries get you down and make you feel stupid because you are only working on your second language. Or because you are a teenager/grown up and  “can only count to four in Spanish”. Or because “a lot of countries are multilingual anyway so all you effort doesn’t mean anything” etc. Work at your own pace, that’s good enough. 

What you are doing is very very cool.

A Killer First Chapter

Anonymous asked:

Do you have any advise on how to open a story? I have all my characters and my plot and my conflict and everything but I don’t know how to start. How to keep a reader hooked and interested enough to keep going.

This is a little ironic, because I’m about to rewrite my opening three chapters for The Warlord’s Contact from scratch for about the tenth time. But practice does make perfect, and boy have I learned a lot through this process.

Sometimes you look at a story and you just know how it needs to open. It’s the most obvious choice in the world, and it’s clear why no other option would work.

Unfortunately, that’s not often the case. Usually, the beginning to your book will take preplanning and rewriting and replanning and bit more rewriting, and all the while you’ll never quite be sure you chose the best spot to open to, or the right characters to introduce, or the proper setting. 

Here are a few specific methods of thought for tackling your first chapter…

college advice part 1/7 : what to do when you need to miss class

 header inspired by @thestudypeach | i’ve gotten quite a few asks + messages about this, so i thought i’d make a short masterpost over how to handle this!

these are just tips from what i’ve learned from my time at uni!!

  • this is college, not high school. you have to take responsibility. the professors won’t be on your ass to get stuff done. you need to know what you’re missing. they won’t care what you miss or what excuse you have. they’ll still expect you to know it, and they should. this is college.
  • check the attendance policy for EACH class, and each component if it has labs or recitations also. you need to know how many classes you can miss without being penalized. for example, my chemistry class never took attendance, but they provided notes + extra credit if you showed up. my bio class didn’t care + they put their lectures online my physics class allowed only 3 absences, as attendance was taken every lecture. LABS however, do not usually allow absences. my chem lab allowed 1 absence, my bio lab didn’t allow any at all. you need to figure out the attendance policy!! these are in place in case you are sick, need to miss class for a wedding, are on a school trip, etc. further excused absences are usually given for extended hospital stays, grievance, etc. with paperwork (NOTE: this is for my university only, but i assume it’s relatively the same at other large public universities across the US??)!
  • make at least two friends in each class you have. other people might say to make one friend, but the reason i say two is because that one person isn’t always going to be in class either. the more people who have your back when it comes to filling you in, the better.
  • go over the lecture material + do it thoroughly!! if you miss material, go over it!!! go over it three times! do what you need to do to understand it. write notes, read the book, look at the lecture notes if you have them from a friend. listen to the lecture if that’s an option. but learning the material as thoroughly as you can will help you to be better prepared for the next class and seeing your professor for help if you need to do so! just because you can’t make it to lecture doesn’t mean that you can’t learn to material!
  • go to office hours and go over the material you missed with the professor. but make sure you already know the material. if you already know the material briefly, you can ask more specific questions about what you don’t understand. professors are there to help, and to be honest, i’ve noticed that they love to see students and answer questions!

hope this helps! as always, my ask box is open 24/7 :)

WHY I HATE THE SIGNS

If youre salty I’m sorry


Aries♈: you jump to conclusions. You think for others and tell them how they feel. You never give them the chance to tell there side of the story. You throw around labels thinking your judgment is absolute. Get off the soapbox at look at yourself for once.


TAURUS♉: youre more possesive than you think. Youre loving but consuming. Your fear of being alone makes you controlling. Love isn’t possession.


Cancer♋: don’t be such a coward. Youre so brave… until you have to talk about your feelings. Youre terrible at confrontation and it keeps you from saying what needs to be said and defending against injust actions from peers. People can’t read minds, if they are upsetting you, you need to tell them don’t wait until they’ve done it 20 times and then blow up at them. Also stop avoiding your needs, you are not a sponge for the world’s pain so please please stop rejecting help and healing.


Gemini♊: stabilize yourself. Youre emotional and impulsive at your worst. Satiate your need for order in other things not in people, they are not yours to compartmentalize. Your spy tactics and lies are obvious


Leo: you are not born king. You can be stopped. Just because you exist doesn’t mean everyone has to yield to you. A good leader leads while helping to lift the box, a bad leader yells at others to pick it up while standing on the box


Virgo♍: you are not a saint or faultless mother. You judge very easily and are bothered by minor things. You don’t have to fix everyone and everything. You need a tougher skin. Youre so busy fixing everyone else that you are left in shambles. If you are dating an “I can fix him/her/them” really ask yourself if you love them or the idea of fixing them.


Libra♎: form an opinion. Don’t roll over when people belittle you. Defend yourself. Get mad be angry be fierce. You are so eager to please it annoys everyone. Stop stealing from others personality to fit in. Find your own identity and never change it for others. Also have some integrity and dignity to admit mistakes instead of flirting your way out of blame then maybe People might respect you more.


Scorpio♏: you have vanity issues. You can be very selfish and vain yet at the same time you harbor a toxic sense of insecurity. Learn to be humble and charitable and maybe you will start to see your true self more than the makeup you use to mask the incomplete self you hate.


Sagittarius♐: you need to relax. Holy hell you need to relax. And by relax I mean the “I’m comfortable in my own skin” relaxed. Your so concerned with feeling embarrassed and what others think of you that you never get to be you. Go nuts dude


Capricorn♑: hey buddy can you stop playing cop please. Everyone does things for a reason. Your intuition isn’t always right. Wait before you call someone stupid and your behind the back snarky judging is kinda ruthless, try being at least a little empathetic.


Aquarius♒: you don’t have to impress everyone. You don’t have to be the best at everything all the time. You just need to learn to be. Every now and then just find a spot devoid of people and just sit. Think about life, not what to do with it, just life. Take in the real world, not the one you make in your head.


Pieces♓: you aren’t innocent. You have the capacity to break. Either break into sad pieces or break into wrath. Pay attention to what’s going on. You get distracted easily and sometimes lash out and hurt people because of it. Work on your focus.


I know we always focus on all the good things about signs but we gotta look at our faults too.

being a woman + young + having a degree = any time a conservative disagrees with you, you’re going to get some variation on “you need to realize you can’t learn everything from books!”

like, ok grandma, you’re not entirely wrong, but i can probably learn more from books than you can learn from fox news

Summary: Peter Parker goes on a mission to bring back the Winter Solider, but ends up getting beat up really badly. As he’s passing out he calls out for his girlfriend, asking Steve to call her. Everyone is surprised since they had no idea Peter was dating anyone. Fluff, teasing and a little revenge ensues :)
Not really a request…I found this post and was just so inspired!
Warnings: violence, mention of blood, swearing…and a little long. Sorry not sorry lol

It all started with that damn red notebook. 

“We should’ve destroyed it.” Steve said, barely able to look up from the table top.  
“You should’ve kept Bucky asleep in Wakanda.” Tony said roughly, spitting out Bucky’s name. He may have forgiven Steve for their fight during the Accords, but he was far from forgiving Bucky for killing his parents.
“We should’ve known it wouldn’t be safe with SHIELD. Those guys are always having their headquarters either broken into or blown up.” Sam shot back, trying to keep the peace but catering to everyone’s shared distaste for the spy organization.
