HOW TO TEACH YOURSELF LANGUAGES SUPER EFFICIENTLY

I write this bcz I’m a huge language enthusiast and I’m frustrated about the way most methods and language classes/courses approach the process of learning. I’m not a professional but I have a lot of experience in studying foreign languages: I have taught myself Lithuanian and reached the upper intermediate level (B2) in 4-5 years without much help from others, and in Spanish reaching the same level took me only 2 years bcz I simultaneously studied it at school and already knowing French helped me a little. I want to help everyone who wants to start a new language, does not have the possibility to join a language course or just feels frustrated of the stagnation they might experience in the early phase of learning a foreign language.

So, if you want to learn a new language, I suggest following tips:

• Immerse yourself from the beginning! This is really important so that you can get yourself familiar with the intonation and pronunciation of the language. Listen to radio or tv and try to read whatever you can (ingredient lists from the food packages, newspaper articles, whatever!) it doesn’t matter if you can’t understand much yet, it will come! If you start a language with a new alphabet learn the alphabet really well first thing.

• Get an overview of the grammatical structure of the language! This is often not properly done in language courses where you learn some vocabulary and greetings but after 60 pages of the textbook you still have no idea how many verb tenses or noun cases the language has. Take a look even at the “hardest” topics, bcz they might not be that hard after all. (for example the Spanish equivalent of past perfect is much easier than the present tense) 

 • With that being said, learn to recognise past tenses even when you are still learning the present tense! I find it absurd that most courses expect you to master present tense _perfectly_ before even taking a look at other tenses. Most of the time, in everyday communication, past tenses are used more frequently than the present tense + in some languages mastering the past tense can also help you to form the conditional. So, learn the past tense earlier than most ppl would recommend!

 • In general, study the easiest things first! If you find something particularly difficult you gain more confidence and knowledge if you first focus on what you find more interesting (however, you can’t postpone studying boring topics eternally, especially if you are preparing or hoping to prepare for an exam at some point) In Lithuanian, I taught myself a lot of grammar before learning how to tell the time… and it was ok.

• For material: usually the country’s universities have a reading list on their website which proposes what books one could use to study the language. These are often preferable to handbooks aimed for tourists and some language methods for beginners because those mostly focus on useless vocabulary you might only need when you rent a car or book a room in a hotel. The grammar is often also relatively poorly explained in those “tourist language books”, whereas books that are aimed at immigrants or university students usually focus more on the efficient language acquisition and are written by professors and specialists. If you are persistent enough and google all possible search words in both English and the target language,  you can probably find whole textbooks in PDF format, which you can then save on your laptop.

• Don’t get stuck on vocabulary! Remember that grammar is the skeleton of the language and that vocabulary is the muscles hair and eventually the clothes you use to dress up and embellish your apperance. Vocabulary is useful once you know how to use it. For me, learning vocab is the hardest part of a new language, especially bcz I like starting languages that are not really similar to any other languages I know (consider Lithuanian and Greek when I previously knew Finnish, English, French and Spanish) ofc you need to learn some of it to be able to form sentences but most traditional methods focus on that too much. My suggestion is to read a lot: start by children’s books and comics and gradually get more advanced material. When you read them, make notes!! Look up the words you don’t know and don’t be afraid of using unconventional, seemingly challenging ways to learn, such as buying a bilingual poetry collection and trying to decipher what the original poem says and compare it to the translation. 100% recommend, even for the beginner level + it’s a nice way to connect to the culture but still focus on the language itself, not on the way ppl make breakfast in that country. (That’s something that irritates me a lot in most Youtube’s language videos where ppl are just discussing the traditions of the country in English when you had come there to look for the explanation of grammatical structures or just to hear the language being spoken. smh.)

• A really important thing about vocabulary is to learn all the abstract words, such as conjunctions, really soon! For example, if you find yourself in a situation where you have to use the words therefore and otherwise,  it is almost impossible to try to explain those words without first translating them to another language. 

• Make vocabulary learning more interesting and deep by learning about the etymology of the words you learn. It can be mind-blowing and it helps you to remember the words better.

That’s it!

I hope these tips inspire you in pursuing your interest in foreign languages and facilitate your learning process. I might add more to this if I remember I have forgotten something of great importance. 

Traffic lights are killing kink fic

Dramatic title, but this rant has been building for some time and I need to get it off my chest. Friends, fellows, lovely fic writers: kink fic in fandom lately sounds like someone is reciting a How To BDSM 101 manual and it’s really starting to grind my gears.

It seems lately that, more often than not, any fic I open with even the teeniest bit of kink spends about half the fic being excruciatingly boring and samey about making sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to consent and who is spanking who in bed. As an Actual Real Live Kinky Person, let me tell you about some things that are seriously pissing me off.

Keep reading

i try to stay positive through whatever. i try to live up to people’s standards whenever i can. i smile whenever it’s appropriate too, even though i’m only pretending to. i always try to do the “right” thing.. even though many times it really felt like the wrong thing. i try to show up for people. i attempt to show up, and look good, for the person people believe me to be. this person who, i believe, is sacred and supreme. god, isn’t she celestial? isn’t she lovely? i believe they think i’m someone who they wanna be a little something alike. and i think to myself.. “they don’t want this fight.” this mind game. this psyche. looking at shit different these days, like— i might be paying karma it’s last dues.. but i feel like i got too much more to do. i can hear death singing her song in my ear, and boy do her blues sound pretty. like— she really put the time in. she really got me feeling some kind of way. like— could somewhere else be a better place? i get bored too often here. i wanna jump off from here. wanna feel the breeze and see the beauty as i’m falling. then i wanna panic until the parachute rises to catch me. i wanna trust for once. wouldn’t that be the right thing to do? to have faith in something even if there is no landing safely? can’t say i truly even care if i’ll land safely. more concerned if i’ll land alone. see, that’s my issue. needing to be in control. needing to narrate a love story because i was taught that’s all that will ever matter. love. even when, throughout my life, i can’t say that’s what mattered most.

  • sharing food is what 99% of your relationship consists of
  • prefers chill, nights in. with LOTS of food and good movies. or sometimes you just talk, with music playing in the background
  • gets so embarrassed if you play his songs
  • “jagi,,, this is awkward, can we listen to something else?”
  • “you said put something good on and nothing’s better than your voice”
  • in the beginning, he acted like an angel
  • (which he is)
  • but I mean … an innocent angel
  • but there is nothing innocent about Jung Jaehyun
  • he let you borrow his laptop when yours broke one week and by Sunday, you had discovered that Jaehyun was far from the saint he portrayed himself to be
  • when you told him, it took 3 whole hours before he could stop blushing
  • but now that you’re more comfortable with each others, he’s okay with telling you about his pervy thoughts or initiating risky skinship
  • by risky I mean you sitting on his lap or kissing your neck around the boys (the older ones,,, he’s still trying to convince the younger ones of his innocence)
  • the boys groan and gag at all your kisses
  • but secretly love seeing their friend happy
  • WHAT THEY DON’T NEED TO SEE IS TONGUE ACTION SO CAN YOU PLS SAVE IT FOR THE BEDROOM
  • Jaehyun is so unashamed of his love for you
  • he’s affectionate 24/7, which is why he can’t keep his hands to himself, not even in public or around his friends
  • despite this comfortable attitude to skinship, he was a bit hesitant about sharing a bed with you the first time
  • even though you did nothing but cuddle, even that made him anxious
  • although he loved the skinship did YOU?? that thought plagues him often. he’s afraid of suffocating you or overwhelming you. but he can’t hold back. he has so much love that he can’t contain
  • although most nights spent together are innocent, there are times when you try … you know, doing more than just cuddling
  • but those are ALWAYS the nights that one of the kids comes in to annoy you
  • like Jeno will barge in to show off his new car drawing or Jaemin invites you to an Iron Man marathon. then there’s Donghyuck who just wants to annoy you lol
  • he loves kissing your nose tho
  • and if you kiss his dimples, he turns into a pile of mushy goo
  • the others can find him annoying sometimes, since he talks about you a lot
  • he’ll tell them all about your dates, about how cutely you held his hand, or about … some less cute activity
  • and it’s great that their friend found love BUT CAN YOU NOT TALK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE?!?!
  • his life revolves around you, but not in an obsessive way
  • he still hangs out with the guys or with his family when he can
  • and he takes time to be alone too
  • but he’s always thinking of you
  • he’ll take you home any extra food (not his, you bet your ass he ate everything) from lunch with the guys
  • and saves a cupcake his gran baked to give to you
  • he thinks bouquets are too cringey but if he sees a pretty flower, he’ll definitely pick it for you
  • you mean so much to him
  • and he’s afraid that when his schedule is packed, and he can’t see you often, that you might doubt that fact
  • or forget about him
  • (not that you’ll cheat, that doesn’t cross his mind, he trusts you too much)
  • (but what if you forget about him?? if you get bored of waiting??)
  • so this relationship needs to be 50/50
  • you can’t just expect him to give his all
  • make sure you show your love too
  • cook or order food for him as often as you can
  • ask how he slept
  • remind him to take his vitamins
  • there’s more ways to show love that with words, and those are the ways that are most romantic imo
  • anyone could say “I love you” but waiting up until 4 am with cold pizza for him is more loving than words could ever be
  • making him watch 22 Jump Street and he starts saying “my name is Jeff” at least 5 times a day
  • works even harder to improve his English, feeling embarrassed if he pronounces something wrong … esp around your family
  • he just wants to impress them,, so messing up in any way makes him feel so bad,,
  • Jaehyun is just the perfect guy, tbh. He was probably a prince in a former life. He puts you first, always, and never has a bad thing to say. He’s a happy, positive person so this impacts the relationship greatly. There’s mostly smooth sailing and any arguments are rare and sorted maturely. At the end of the day, all he wants is your happiness. And Jung Jaehyun tries his hardest to ensure you’re happy
Night Routine

My night routine was always more extensive then Harry’s ever was or will ever be. I can’t even count the times Harry has complained over the years about me taking to long to get into bed.

“Come on babe, wearing your makeup to bed once wont kill you!” Or

“Petal come cuddle I’m going to die of loneliness!”

Did this ever make me go any faster? No, but it did make me smile and my heart swell just a little bit.

A little bit ago we got home from Interviews. Interview days were good and bad. Good because they weren’t too hectic and I got to be with Harry. The bad part was I was with Harry but couldn’t talk to him.

After getting done with some work of my own around 10:30 P.M I decided the start getting ready for bed. Swiftly I shut my laptop and sat it down on the couch beside me. Harry was sitting on the other couch across from me writing on several different pieces of papers. Not sure what they were, music I assume.

I stand up, stretch my arms up above my head, and letting out a little yawn.

“Where ya goin’ bug?” Harry asked briefly looking up from the papers in his hands.

“I finished my work so I’m gonna get ready for bed.” I say going over and kissing him on the forehead.

“Okay, I’ll be up in a minute, I’m almost done.” Harry says softly before turning right back to the papers.

I lightly pout. When I don’t walk away Harry looks up at me.

“Somethin’ else?” He asks then looks back at the papers.

I get right in front of him, take the papers out of his hands, and set them beside him on the couch.

Immediately Harry snaps his head up. He’s about to say something but I cut him off.

I bring my hand down to the collar of his shirt and lightly tug.

Harry’s face breaks into a dimpled smile.

“I jus bout forgot din I?” He ask with a smirk tugging at his lips.

Quickly Harry pulled the shirt over his head and handed it to me.

I tilted his chin up towards me and kissed his lips.

“Thank you babe.” I say then head to our bedrooms bathroom.

Ever since we started dating I always loved to wear Harry’s clothes but especially after he wore them. If he ever wore a casual t shirt all day, then that night I’d want to wear it because it smelt like him.

Once I got into the bathroom I changed into his shirt and clean underwear. Throwing my hair into a bun I quickly wash my face and brush my teeth. I don’t think I take too long getting ready for bed, Harry just always washes his face and brushes his teeth right after dinner. Also he is a very impatient booger.

In the middle of brushing my teeth I look in the mirror and can see Harry lying on the bed more thank likely just in boxers, under the blanket. His left hand is behind his head while is right props his phone up on his chest scrolling through who knows what. Probably Instagram even though the boy never uses it.

When I get done I turn the bathroom light and head towards the bed.

Harry sees the light go off out of the corner of his eye and locks his phone setting it on his bedside table. Then he looks up at me and out stretches his arms.

“Come ere’ bugs, I’ve missed you.”

I giggle but do as he says, laying my head on his chest and his right arm wraps around me and lightly kisses me on top of my head.

“Harry we’ve spent the whole day together.” I say smiling and lightly kissing his chest.

Instantly his fingers start running through my hair.

“Yeah but I’ve been doing stuff all day and besides we haven’t really been alone.”  He says still playing with my hair.

I take a deep breath in, just inhaling his wonderful scent. I know this sounds super creepy but I’ve never smelt a more wonderful smelling person in my life.

My right hand slowly traces random shapes on his bare chest. And for a while that’s all we do. No talking, just enjoying each others presence.

After a little while of doing this though I get a little bored. I needed more contact, if even possible.

I scoot up higher to where my head is now resting right by his neck. I turn my lips to wear I can kiss him. And that’s just what I do.

Anywhere my lips can reach I kiss. Lightly sucking every so often, especially behind his ear where he’s most sensitive.

I swing me leg over his body to where I’m straddling him and get to work on his other side.

Harry’s hand slide under my shirt and grab onto my hips.

“I thought we were supposed to try to go to sleep?” He asks lightly chuckling.

“Sleeps boring, I’d rather do this.” I mumble kiss up his jaw.

Suddenly I’m flipped over and Harry’s on top of me.

“Oh you don’t know what you just started.” Harry says with a smirk and wild eyes.

Lets just say we did a lot of stuff other than sleeping.

————————————-

Sorry I haven’t written in forever!! I’ve sadly had no motivation but I’m back!! Hope you liked!

I tried not to make this smutty but if y’all would like a part 2 smutty version let me know!!

“Don’t you see that’s exactly what you’re doing?”

“Well what am I supposed to do when you turned everyone against me?” He yelled.

Although I’m a BTS fan I feel like BTS title tracks are steadily declining in quality. Spring Day was boring and I personally didn’t like it AT ALL. I haven’t really loved a title track from them since I Need U. I wish they’d let songs like Dope, Fire, Not Today etc. be their main songs more often because it’s all becoming boring and redundant.

GOT7: Being unable to make you reach orgasm (M)

Lyly’s note: Here comes (STFU, I’m puntastic 😈) a great request. This is so important I hope I did it justice, a lot of couples struggle with this issue. I sincerely wish you all the chance to experience orgasms & to find a partner with whom you are comfortable enough to communicate well. #ThatJustGotReal. Don’t hesitate to write if you have questions or need someone. #ImChill #BeenThere.

JB

At first, Jaebum didn’t think too much of it, he knew it could be stress or nervousness. But after a while, it starts to drain him and he thinks about it very often. Is he doing something wrong? Should he be doing something more? He doesn’t want to make you uncomfortable, so he tries to spice things up in the bedroom instead. His attempts come off slightly awkward and when you end up asking him if he finds you boring in bed, he finally tells you about his worries. Things get easier after Jaebum’s initial confession, you both talk about your secret fantasies and end up a lot closer.

Jinyoung

He was very open with you from the start, he asked about your preferences and told you his. After a few weeks of intimacy, he wonders again what he can do to help you get off. Jinyoung is a giver and he wants to feel that you’re as relaxed and pleased by this relationship as he is. He’s very rational about the “issue”, he even reads about the subject to find out great tips. One night, he asks if you ever climaxed before and if you’d be comfortable enough to show him how you do it and help you both.

Youngjae

Poor man. You’re not even thinking or minding it this early in your relationship, but he’s already obsessing. You can sense something is off since Youngjae seems to avoid intimacy with you and don’t understand why. His attitude makes you feel very self-conscious too… When you decide to tell him about your insecurities, Youngjae lets out a sigh of relief and ends up talking about his too. You both reassure each other and promise to get out of this deadlock together. He’s secretly really glad he didn’t have to ask Jinyoung for advice, he was afraid he’d be teased about this for years.

He’s the type that worries too much and ends up with Sexual Performance Anxiety. Protect this sunshine at all costs.

Jackson

Jackson secretly tortures himself about not being able to make you cum. He wants to so bad and he really tries his best. He makes sure you know how much he loves you, that you’re comfortable enough, that sex is more than enjoyable You often tell him that you’re perfectly pleased with your intimate life, so he feels like asking about it directly could burden you. Putting you on the spot is the last thing that he wants to do, but one day he gets tipsy and spits it out. You’re so surprised to find out he was worrying all this time that you can’t help but laugh. You two end up spending an amazing erotic night, laughing and talking about all your fantasies & preferences.

Bambam

He always acts so confident about his skills in bed, that you don’t understand why he suddenly begins to change his style. Bambam is actually so worried by the fact that he can’t make you cum, that he’s seriously contemplating asking one of his hyungs for advice, but he doesn’t. Instead, he tries to spice things up. Don’t get me wrong, you love wild Bambam, but you also enjoy the occasional more normal round. Like, you know, an actual bed for example. One day, you can’t deal with his weird antics anymore and after a looooong discussion, you end up guessing why he’s been acting so weird. You wish he talked to you directly, but hey… At least you two can work something out with the gadgets he just bought…

Mark

It doesn’t really affect his confidence, but after a while Mark wants to make sure this relationship fulfills you. He wants to be able to have the same effect on you as you have on him, so he searches for information on Google. What he reads clearly doesn’t reassure him and he realizes he has to be straightforward with you. He says he’s thankful to have a girlfriend who doesn’t feel pressured into faking pleasure for his sake. You reassure him by saying that although you haven’t orgasm yet, all your time together was more than amazing. The next time you have sex, you make sure you’re vocal about what gets you off and you both enjoy yourselves even more.

Yugyeom

Whenever he’s caught in the moment, having sex with you, Yugyeom never doubts that you’re enjoying yourself. After all, your chemistry is undeniable, but somehow the thought of you being unsatisfied always comes creeping when he’s away. He’s a bit too shy to ask straightforwardly how to make you cum, so instead he turns the conversation he dreads into a playful phone call. One day late, after a concert, he calls from an hotel room and tells you how much he’d want you right now. He starts by telling how bad he needs you and then he asks how you’d want him to touch you right now, in details. He makes sure to listen to everything you say because he wants to use it all when you both reunite.

Elder or Younger Moons

Which zodiac sign is the oldest and which is the youngest?

Despite what people would think, in astrology, the oldest zodiac sign is Pisces for being the 12th and last sign in the circle with the youngest being Aries, the first sign. Basically, a younger sign is one that is closer to Aries in distance on the zodiac wheel and an older is closer to Pisces.

The “age” difference between our Sun signs and Moon signs can actually be very insightful of the relationship between our ego and our subconscious. Let’s take a look:

Your Moon sign is younger than your Sun sign:

Example: Virgo Sun with Cancer Moon 

You may desire to be a mature person, but at heart you are a child. You want to be happy, but your older ego may tell you to stop and get your work done. It can be difficult to live with young and powerful emotions if you do not accept them and nurture them. People with this combination of Sun and Moon signs may be more prone to sudden emotional outbursts when they don’t want it or hiding their emotions away for the longest time as they build up unhealthily. However, once you fully accept your emotions and take care of them, it will be much easier to balance your more responsible and adult side with your childish and fun-loving side.

Your Moon sign is older than your Sun sign:

Example: Scorpio Sun with Sagittarius Moon

Your emotions may be wise, but your ego won’t always listen to them. You will want to play- for a while. Then, the game is no longer fun and you get bored. It is likely that you take more risks because your emotions tell you it’s not a good idea, but your ego wants you to do it out of spite and to impress. As someone with this placement, I find that it is like having your own emotions mother you. When harmonious, there are beautiful things about elder emotions once you accept the signs and warnings they give you. Your subconscious knows what you really need in life and following them is following your heart. They are often very careful with your conscious, which makes emotional outbursts less common. Your emotional self wants nothing from you but to learn, grow, and find yourself in this crazy heck of a reality.

Your Moon sign is the same age as your Sun sign:

Example: Aquarius Sun with Aquarius Moon

Your ego and emotions may have the easiest time working together. They may be best friends with each other since they are so similar. The only downside to this combination is that they may not learn so much from each other and one may be very dependent on the other. But in a world of infinite knowledge, if the two have to learn and grow together then that is what they do.

anonymous asked:

i have to say i'm scared. i know it's not truly our fault for talking about stuff that they put out that interests us, but i can't help feeling really guilty like we've broken something, ruined their increasing openness. what if we never get another gaming vid like crash bandicoot. what if they do dream daddy but they don't sit near each other and it's awkward. we can't apologize as a fandom, we can't fix whatever we did. i did nothing to participate in the conversation and i'm still so scared

while i understand that your response is an emotional one i do think these types of fears are completely unfounded. it’s the product of being trapped in all of the back and forth on sites like this one, where you kind of just lose sight of the larger perspective and only hear the loud voices of fans who are often posting about things when they’re at the height of their own emotional responses. listen, if there wasn’t that sketchy dan ls last week this would’ve been just another phil video. a bit more boring than his usual, perhaps staged bc he needed some quick content, but nothing concerning, nothing to be fearful about. nothing at all significant about his using the only room in which he’s shot main channel videos to shoot another, standard main channel video. the idea that he is angry is purely speculative. there’s a difference between phil making a video somewhat aimed at preserving the image they’ve always maintained and phil being upset/angry/hurt/offended and wanting to lash out. i think, if anything, if this video really had a single thing to do with us and our theories, then it falls under that first category and not the second. 

the notion that ppl talking about bedrooms is going to forever change the trajectory of dnp’s relationship with the audience or with each other is actually absurd. it erases eight years of their history being the subject of conversations just like this (if not convos that were wayyy worse) and it honestly kind of reduces their own individual autonomy. their relationship with each other is not built around us, it’s not so weak that it will just disintegrate bc of one week of speculation about their rooms. that’s a complete overemphasis of the power we have and an underestimation of dnp themselves and what they mean to each other. idk man, i’m honestly shocked at how hysterically people are reacting to all of this. as i said in yesterday’s post, the video felt like phil wanting things to remain a certain way, to continue to be perceived a certain way, because people picked up on things that dan himself showed us. there’s nothing we need to apologize for in that. it’s okay to feel bad that the video didn’t necessarily go over the way phil wanted, it’s okay to feel bad that maybe things went in a direction they were unprepared for and they’ve had to scramble to fix it, it’s okay to feel bad for them, but that’s different than feeling guilty or penitent or apologetic like any of this is your fault. just like, abandon the notion that dnp need this level of protection from us because they don’t. they’ve got it handled, they’re in control, it’s all good. just breathe and watch something else or get off tumblr for a while if you really feel so afraid, because i guarantee these fears are the product of reading other people’s thoughts and not from watching phil’s video itself! don’t let people on here make you feel guilty just for watching some youtube videos lmao. life is short, it’s not a big deal i promiseeee. i’m wishing you the best and hope you feel better soon <3 

Need your loving (Tom Holland x Reader)

Request: So this isn’t a request but I was listening to ‘Sugar’ by Maroon 5 in the car this morning and I couldn’t help but think about lip syncing that to Tom in front of the whole cast of Civil War just to embarrass him c: So cute when he blushes xx / Anytime! But also my mind took I turn when the lines “Yeah I want that red velvetI want that sugar sweet Don’t let nobody touch itUnless that somebody’s me I gotta be your manThere ain’t no other way'Cause girl you’re hotter than a southern California day” LIKE IMAGINE KNEE SLIDING ROCK N ROLL STYLE IN BETWEEN HIS THIGHS LIKE HE"D BE SO FLUSTERED AND JUST AWWW / Okay so remember awhile back when I sent an ask about singing Maroon 5’s Sugar to Tom and him being all flustered and knee sliding to him and aw… Could you pretty please do an imagine on that? THANKS LOVEYOUUU by @cassatron-castiel (it doesn’t let me tag???)

A/N: I had so much fun writing this and it only took me 15 minutes! I hope you like this! :) x 


You lied on Tom’s bed, reading a book as he studied his script. Music was playing on the background, a Spotify playlist on shuffle.
You closed the book, which you had read multiple times, and stared at the ceiling.
‘’I’m bored’’ you told Tom, looking at him.
He looked back at you and laughed softly before returning his attention to the stack of paper in his hands. You rolled your eyes and hummed softly to the music, getting up to turn the volume up and change the song. Sugar by Maroon 5 started to play, making you jump out of excitement. You whispered the first verses, walking to the bed, an idea forming in your mind.
‘’Cause I really don’t care where you are,’’ you started, making Tom look at you, a frown on his forehead, ‘’I just wanna be there where you are and I gotta get one little taste’’ you sang with a sensual tone in your voice.
He blushed as you got onto bed on your knees, softly sliding onto him. He put the papers aside as your legs got between his, his hands moving to your waist, softly shaking, indicating you he was nervous and feeling shy about the situation.
‘’Your sugar, yes please’’ you whispered. ‘’Won’t you come and put it down on me?’’
He run his hands up your body, soft gasps escaping his mouth as you kissed down his neck. You removed his t-shirt, leaving a small hickie on his chest.
‘’Don’t let nobody touch it,’’ you whispered into his lips, ‘’unless that somebody’s me.’’
You kissed him softly, the kiss turning heated as it went on. He removed your t-shirt, only breaking the kiss to get it off your head.
‘’Yeah, you show me good loving, make it alright’’ you continued. ‘’Need a little sweetness in my life’’ you finally said, his lips attacking the soft spot on your neck.
He looked at you, his hair messy and his eyes full of lust, although an adoring and funny look on them.
‘’I guess I’ll have to make you bored more often’’ he whispered, making you laugh before kissing him again.

rulerofthefandomkingdom  asked:

So, two years back I began writing a book. I got 11 chapters in and suddenly, I just lost all interest. I have people asking for updates on it, but I just don't feel it. I love the idea for the story, but I just cant seem to get motivated. Any tips?

First off, congrats for actually getting to a chapter 11! That’s a significant accomplishment, and if people are asking for more, then you’ve got a good start.

It’s always rough when motivation runs out and I’m sad to hear that even the inquiry of others isn’t enough to get you back on track. I usually recommend outside interest as a good way to get motivation, but perhaps in your case it may not be personal enough? It’s a little easier to let down a stranger than a close friend, but I won’t mention that any further since you’ve said it’s not working. Here are some other things you could try in your particular situation:

1. Don’t let insecurities smother your desire to write. The only way to really get better is to practice, and even if what you’re writing isn’t “good”, it’s still worth your time to practice. Since you made it through 11 chapters, this may not be an issue, but insecurity can sneak up at inopportune time and sometimes hide within other issues so I’d be mindful of it.

2. Look into what motivated you before? Your past is proof that you CAN get things done, but why isn’t it working anymore? By getting to those details, you can often pinpoint the source of the issue and fix it.

3. Summarize your idea. Plan it out. Sometimes motivation is lost even if you have a cool idea because you have no clue how to put it together and continue past a certain point. Planning can help mitigate that block.

4. Write a future scene that you actually want to write and use it as a goal to reach. This ‘stepladder’ approach is often good for keeping writer interest, but watch the reasons why you don’t want to write other scenes to make sure they aren’t just boring. A boring scene to write can be a boring scene to read, so note the difference between “I don’t want to write this at all” vs “I want to write that other scene more”.

5. What could logically happen next in your story? What’s the cause-effect relationship of your events? Look into the details of the story and see where they need to go.

6. Create something else from your story, like a drawing, movie poster, anything related. Use it as proof that you’re still working on the project.

7. Start talking to people about it. This is a little more beyond having fans, but rather having a person that you can brainstorm with. Sure, a lot of the ideas you come up with may be useless, but if often helps to just get things flowing.

I hope at least one of those methods helps a bit. Good luck getting back to work with your project!

  • Shion : No.
  • Nezumi: Are we there yet?
  • Shion : Nezumi, find something else to do… Maybe read some book…
  • Nezumi: I already read them dozen times and don’t say that my glorious body against your back is something that bothers you.
  • Shion: Your body is appreciated, but this childish question not much…
  • Nezumi. I see. So, Your Majesty, are we there yet?
  • Shion : Nezumi….

Next picture for NO.6 Pirate AU. I wanted to color it, but I have other pictures from this au that I wish more to color or at least edit it on computer from sketch to something more… beside I need to do something that I didn’t have in plans once I started to draw for this AU. Not mention that next chapter of Not Perfect isn’t working with me. I can’t get it to state when I could like it… so for this picture, let’s leave it as sketch, alright XD?   

PS. Inukshi, Safu and Rikiga mostly kills time by playing in cards. Nezumi got bored with that too. Shion need to find some treasure soon and buy for his boyfriend more books… Putting Nezumi in charge isn’t an option too. He often almost crashes ship once he get hands on ship wheel.

5 Signs Your Third Eye Is Opening

 Many of you on the path of spiritual awakening are experiencing a lot of changes. The following signs could explain some of what you’ve been going through and shed some light on why you’ve been feeling different lately. 

1. Headaches. Your headaches or migraines have been getting worse and feel like an unseen entity is trying to prize open your skull and scoop out the gooey contents inside. Relax - this is a common symptom - get plenty of fresh air, drink a lot of water (2 litres a day) and eat more greens to oxygenate your body.

2. Sight. The third eye has also been called the mind’s eye, when it begins to open your mental vision becomes much clearer. Dreams become more vivid and intensely visual, your imagination seems more “real” than ever and you’re feeling more creative than usual. Use this energy to create more.

3. Questions. When your third eye is opening you will find yourself questioning everything - why do we have to go to school? What’s in this water I’m drinking? Why am I alive? These questions can be answered by going on the journey within - spend time in nature and listen to your self-talk to find answers.

4. Diet. Your usual diet is less interesting - you may find yourself wanting to eat fresh fruits and vegetables more often. This is because your vibration is raising along with the opening of the third eye and you are seeking higher vibrational fuel for your body. Listen to what your body needs and nourish yourself accordingly.

5. People. Those you once resonated with now seem boring to you - you are going through changes and will find it harder to be around them. Acknowledge that we are all on our own journeys and everyone wakes up in their own time. You don’t have to be alone - find people you resonate with by being true to yourself, don’t be afraid to distance yourself from others.

This is a time of great change - remember puberty? Well, this is similar - except with a lot less hair…unless you decided to grow yours (like I did). You’re not going crazy and you’re not dying - your consciousness is expanding and it will take time to adjust. 

You have 3 eyes - 2 to look and 1 to see.

Peace & positive vibes.

If I could be anywhere else in the world right now, I would. I hated being at the club. Full of nothing but rich grumpy old men walking around drinking their scotches and smoking their cigars and occasionally partaking in, what is possibly, the most boring sport in the entire world. Golf. It seemed to have become more of a social club at this point for the older members, with the younger, newer members filling out the greens and the putting lanes.

So, yes, I hated it. The only time I remotely even pretended to tolerate it, was when it was absolutely, crucially necessary. Basically only showing up to look pretty and stick on a smile for whatever family photo-op my Dad needed for the club’s yearly annual or if we were referenced in the city’s paper and on the news, which was often the case. We were a highly influential family, rich in money and our many charities.

See, my father owned the most prestigious and exclusive members only golf club in the state. Has since before I was born. A southern country club girl born and raised, I don’t really know much of anything else besides attending the best private schools and how to successfully run a golf club. I’m an only child, and a bit of a Daddy’s girl, and proud of it.

But none of that meant that I enjoyed lagging around after my father as he got ready to play his morning round before the club opened on this particular day.
