i never have to do science again

socktrollqueen  asked:

Today is a not a good day for me mentally. My hubbs keeps calling me from work to check up on me. I'm just in one of those moods where I want to vanish for a bit, but responsibilities demand my attention. So, I am having a cry before my child gets home from school. I have started therapy and we are discussing medications and I know that is a good step. But I'm terrified all the same.

It’s going to be okay.

YOU are going to be okay. This is a temporary thing with your brain being a dick, and you will get through this.

I’m so proud of you for starting therapy, and looking into meds to help your brain get the help it needs to stop being a dick to you.

If I may suggest something: I practice a version of cognitive behavioral therapy. The short and overly simplified version is: when I feel my brain throwing a sad or depressive or negative thought at me, I stop what I’m doing, and I make the effort to consciously remember something awesome that happened that made me happy. It doesn’t matter what it is, just as long as it’s a good memory. It doesn’t even have to be a big, complicated memory. It can be like that time I ran my first 5K, or the time I switched on my emulator and it worked! It can be a quiet walk I took with Anne (I have a lot of those to choose from) and specifically how nice it felt to hold her hand. 

We have tons of good memories, and sometimes we have to make the effort and work hard to find them, especially when it’s easier to feel bad about something.

Also, it’s OKAY to recognize that a thing made you sad, and then sort of visualize putting it on a shelf or in a bag or just kicking it out of your way for a moment while you pay attention to that good memory.

There’s science which tells us that the experience of recalling something happy produces the same neurochemicals as actually having that experience, so even though this can feel like woo woo mystical bullshit, it’s a real thing.

So your homework is to think of an awesome thing that happened, just a moment when you were really happy, and recall something specific from that moment. Your brain may try to be a dick and do this thing where it goes, “and that’ll never happen again.” or “and I didn’t deserve it.” When your brain does that, it can be a challenge to stay focused on the good memory, but you can do it!

You’re gonna get through today, I promise. Send me a note tomorrow and let me know how you’re feeling, okay?

how do you flirt with an INTJ asking for a friend

Alrighty so here’s the lowdown

Flirting with an INTJ

By an ENTP

Warning, probably pretty ENTP-centered (the randomness of the flirting is off the charts) so interpret and use it as you will.

But this has worked for me TWICE so I’m not bad at this. I scored one of the INTJs I flirted with (we’ve been dating for months now) and managed to convince another to go on two dates with me before ditching him because he’s a bitch so I know this guys. I have spent years (you think I’m kidding? sadly im not) researching this and not even shitting you, this is how you do it:

  • Number one you gotta just introduce yourself and make sure you know the person knows your name if you’re starting from square one. Like “oh hey I’ve seen you around and you seem really smart. But I don’t know your name” if they stare at you blankly or ignore you, tell them “alright am i gonna have to do this the hard way? you seem pretty interesting so I was hoping to chat or something”
    • At this point they’ll answer with like “what” and maybe a laugh if they’re kinda nice so you gotta keep the conversation going
    • They’re gonna ask why so many times you’ll want to scream but you won’t, right?
    • So just be prepared to answer with why you thought they seemed interesting, what compelled you to approach them, etc
    • Ask them at some point about what their favorite things to study are. Listen in fascination or terror, depending on their preferred topics. Seem excited, thrilled, on the edge of your seat. Ask thoughtful questions about the real life applications. Leave them alone for a few days to recuperate. Repeat. Until you’re friends.
  • Get their number. It’s as easy terrifying as chasing them out after class or work and being all “wAIT ok so I really enjoy our conversations so I’m going to have to ask for your number”
    • If they ask “why” again, punch them in the fucking face
      • Jk jk don’t they all know martial arts
    • For real just repeat the line “well I think you’re pretty smart and interesting and I’d like to get to know you more” and if you have to be entirely honest then just say you like them, watch them shit their pants, and yet still give you their number anyway
  • Some super hot lines to turn them on: “whaaat, dang, I never thought of it that way before. Your way of thinking is really cool.” “Have you ever wondered what the real life implications of that would be?” “What would your ideal society look like?” “What do you think of what’s going on in the news?” “Hah random question: what would you change about the human race if it was all up to you?” “Have you ever researched (insert some sophisticated science field you know some things about)? I think you’d be interested in that”
    • If they ask why again, take a deep breath and try not to set them on fire but just, again, tell them you’re interested in how they think and that you’re into psychology and they’re especially fascinating to you if you’re reading this advice, that is true for you so that is not a lie
    • I got super lucky with my current INTJ partner because he asked me to go out with him the day after I pulled out all those questions ^ but 99% of INTJs will be slower than snails
      • Literally spent 2 years of my life trying to goad the other INTJ I had a “thing” with to go out with me, worked but never went anywhere relationship-wise (sometimes they’re just in love with an ISFP and you can’t change it)
  • Put in time, effort, and understanding into the relationship and build trust slowly. They’re not going to open up to you completely within a week of meeting you–it’ll take a LONG time before they’ll probably even discuss their religious views/families/personal lives with you. 
  • Give them SPACE and TIME. They’re busy bees and need lots of space to figure out how they feel about things, so if they’re beginning to like you, be prepared to face a lot of “chilliness” from them until they figure it out
  • Also when they’ve decided they like you, they’re gonna ask you a ton of questions about your personal life and will want you to open up for them (but do NOT push it the other way unless they’re fine with it)
  • They’re probably going to ask you out if they’ve decided they like  you unless their social anxiety is pretty bad. Once Ni-Fi is set on something….it’s set. As in they’re considering a long term, serious relationship with you
  • Love them with all you got but don’t smother them with affection and expect it to be returned with the same enthusiasm. Again, they need space and time to figure everything out, so things may move slowly. 

anonymous asked:

How should someone respectfully salute a woman they met for the first time?

Thank you for coming to me with this question.

The first thing you absolutely must do is accept the fact that a woman met for the first time will take it as a grave insult if you have no visible muffin on your person. Understandably one can’t be expected to carry around a muffin at all times, so if you come upon a woman whom you haven’t met before and you are, at the time, unmuffined, you should immediately cover both of your eyes with you left hand, and place yourself flat on the ground, face down, as quickly as you can (use your right hand for support). Then you must emit a sharp whistle, followed by a long voiceless alveolar trill, transcribed thus: [r̥ːːː]. This will indicate to the unmet woman that you mean no disrespect, and were simply caught off-guard by her sudden appearance. At this point, the unmet woman should continue on her way. Be aware that it is within her rights to step not just over, but on your body as she continues on her way (for more on this, see Corbitt v. Russell). If you believe that the unmet woman has moved out of your line of sight, you should ask as loudly as you can, “Are the frocks still on the bannister, or hasn’t Uncle Harry explained?” If you receive no response, you are safe to get up off the ground and continue your day. If the unmet woman is still within earshot, though, she will began to shake and hiss violently. If you hear this, it’s advisable to remain on the ground and to keep still and quiet. Don’t try asking again until a full hour has passed.

Now, assuming you do have your muffin with you, should you come across an unmet woman, you need not be alarmed. Whether or not the unmet woman has caught sight of you, you must immediately say, “Hop! Hop!” Say it quite loudly, but no need to shout. If the unmet woman is unaware of your presence, this will draw her attention. If she is already aware of your presence, though, she will take it as a sign of respect that you still went to the trouble of saying, “Hop! Hop!” With that done, place your muffin in your left hand, and then with your right hand, tear off a small piece. Having done so, raise your right knee quite high in the air (as high as you can), and then step down nice and forcefully, while at the same time executing a clockwise quarter turn. Facing this direction, toss away the bit of muffin in your right hand proclaiming, “To the sun!” Execute the same series of steps, and then, when facing away from the unmet woman, proclaim, “To the moon!”, and toss your second bit of muffin away. Repeating the same steps and facing a new direction, you will toss your third bit of muffin away, proclaiming, “To the moon!”* Finally one executes the last quarter turn and, rather than tossing, eats the last bit of muffin, offering, after the bit has been swallowed, “To a divine morning of auspicious portent.” At this point one executes a half turn, facing completely away from the unmet woman, and sits down, cross-legged. The muffin is then placed upside-down atop one’s head. If the muffin stays, the woman is considered respectably met. If the muffin falls forwards, towards the greeter, the meeting has gone awry, and the entire affair is considered a failure. If the muffin falls towards the unmet woman, she may replace it on the greeter’s head and give it another try, or she may toss the muffin in the street, continuing on her way. If the muffin falls in any other direction, this is considered a draw, and both parties continue on their way, officially having never met.

Regarding the type of muffin, there are at least nine different major opinions on the matter. Naturally, attitudes have changed through time, but most commenters agree that a non-apple cinnamon muffin is the safest bet. It’s prudent to avoid fruit flavored muffins of any kind before Labor Day. After Labor Day, it really depends on whom you ask. Most agree that apple is always in season, but Collins (1913) disagrees sharply. According to Collins, the only suitable fruit flavored muffin after Labor Day is lemon, but both Chesterfield (1869) and modern commenters Selwig (1994) and Mayors (2002) suggest lemon muffins are suitable only in the spring. As noted in Malcolm, Rodriguez, & Morgan (2016), modern women are far less traditional than in decades past, so it’s best to adhere to recent surveys of woman meeting practices, like Dante (2004), Huang (2007), and the seminal 2011 study “Muffins in the New Millennium: How modern women are redefining the commoditization of space in nouveaux interpersonal interactions” by Mansfield, et al.

The important thing is to not think too much about it. It always seems like a big to do on paper, but the truth of the matter is we meet many woman every single year, and with Amazon’s Prime Now, purchasing fresh, interesting muffins has never been simpler—or cheaper. So relax! When a new woman comes along, so long as you’ve got a muffin with you, you’ll know what to do.

(Oh, but of course, NO BANANA NUT MUFFINS. lol Sometimes it’s so obvious you feel like you don’t even need to say it, but in the interests of being thorough, there you go. And again, I really am just being thorough; please don’t take it amiss that I’m stating something so obvious! After all, we all have to learn some time, and this post may be someone’s first exposure to the art and science of respectfully saluting women.)

*For those wondering why one says “To the moon!” twice in a row, it’s actually a bit of a historical accident. Originally, one said, “To the mode!” This persisted until the 19th century, when some confusion was introduced into the system. In territories west of the Mississippi, it was common to say, “To the main!” on the third toss [for obvious reasons, given the region], and this custom was passed on in various forms further west and to the south. These individuals misinterpreted the word, though, and simply substituted a second “moon” in its place. This is the wording that came into vogue in California, when the short silent film A Dame for to Court was shot. The film was a hit, and played in theaters all the way from Avalon to Albany. Younger folk especially began to replace the original “mode” with “moon” as a direct result of the film’s influence. This at the time was known as “Doing the Dame”—a phrase which was grossly misinterpreted in later years. Its origin aside, though, the practice persists to this day.

Ok so I was going to reblog this and add on, but I want to deviate a little from the original post, and specifically address a comment made in response to it. But the original post is here (x).

Alright so this is the comment from @mrsgilbertholtzmann I want to touch on just a little bit:

Now I’m going to start off with yes, there is absolutely truth to this comment in the sense that with it being one singular movie, where there are four main characters, this means there is limited screen time to truly flesh out individual characters and give them back stories - because plot, and action etc. This can be wonderful for fandom, look characters for us to really delve into and play with, create head cannons on their history, how they would act in certain situations etc. So no we cannot truly say what the creators of the movie TRULY intended. BUT we can work with what we are given. This is what the original post is actually about.


1. Holtzmann is not fantastic with feelings. Her speech at the end of the movie makes this one pretty obvious straight off. It’s very rehearsed and stilted. She does not speak with easy nor comfort. 

Physics is the study of movement of bodies and space and it can unlock the mysteries of the universe but it cannot answer the essential question of what is our purpose here and to me the purpose of life is to love and to love is what you have shown me. I didn’t think that I would ever really have a friend until I met Abby and then I feel like I have a family of my own and I love you, thank you.

Two other aspects of this scene often ignored, firstly Abby’s face during the whole speech for starters, but this face right here, this is the exact moment where Holtzmann says she didn’t think she would every really have a friend until she met Abby. 

This is completely new information to Abby. They’ve been friends for potentially years depending on your views of canon timeline. But Holtzmann has clearly never spoken about her past in great depth, not enough to reveal she’d never had friends or even a good family environment.

Secondly the sound Holtzmann makes once she’s done and sits down, and the fact she won’t even make eye contact with any of the others as they acknowledge what she has said.

This is someone really uncomfortable with sharing her feelings and any potential response she receives. 

2. The majority of the movie Holtzmann only engages in conversation when it is about the science, either loosely or directly. Beyond that it’s jokes (primarily at Erin’s expense) or comments made to another character/s. Now this one is probably a little vague. But hear me out, I’m going to define conversation as being an exchange of ideas, thought, or feelings between two or more people. I’m also going to add on to that, being involved in a discussion means contributing more than a line here or there.

Now not every interaction Holtzmann has would be classed as a discussion. So just a couple of examples.

The speech we just looked at, not a discussion, she said what she wanted to say, then closed down, there was no exchange of thoughts and feelings, it was one sided.

Her first scene, where she introduces herself to Erin, other than really the opening statement, and the occasional remark to Abby. Most of this scene is Abby doing the talking.

The ghost in the subway, Holtzmann actually engages here a little more than she has thus far, but it’s about the science, the equipment she’s created and what needs to happen.

The same can be said for when they’re trying out her new toys in the alley (both times)

Holtzmann has the least amount of lines in the movie that the other three ladies. Most of her lines are short and amusing. But note when I say amusing here I mean it is amusing to us as an audience (which is a whole other thing).

3. Science is her safe place. This one is fairly obvious, its clearly somewhere she often retreats to. The movie takes place over a very short timeline yet Holtzmann has created all these wonderful toys to play with within that time. Now don’t get me wrong she’s very good at what she does, but that’s a lot of time she’s spending on this stuff. Science is also where she feels most comfortable to engage with new people. It’s where she’s happy to be open and talk more (as I just covered off.

Things Holtzmann is not:

1. A sex god - this is not canon, this is not implied at all. Feelings and sex for some are absolutely two different things. So saying Holtzmann is bad with feelings does not automatically mean she cannot also be a sex god. BUT the fact that Holtzmann is bad with feelings, and does not easily engage in conversation with new people other than science based conversations indicates that meeting and having sex with random strangers is probably not something she is doing on the regular.

2. Always knows what to say and it’s hilarious - consider what you actually find “hilarious” about Holtzmann. Think about the moments in the movie really hard. Now ask yourself this question, would you find that line, that action just as funny if you were in the scene, if it was real life. You’ll probably find if you really give it some thought, that answer is probably no. That’s because what’s funny about Holtzmann is humorous to us as an audience ONLY.

3. Makes you gay - now talk about a problematic statement right there. Now where to actually start here. So sure it’s all fun and games to say I was straight until I saw this person and now I’m gay. It’s humorous, everyone has a good laugh, and it’s overused something shocking. What you are implying is being gay is a choice, it is something that can be changed about a person. I’m going to assume that the majority of the people who will read this post would define their sexuality as something different from strictly heterosexual. Now consider how you feel about been told that your sexuality which might have taken you years of heartache, anguish, and struggle to come to terms with, is really only just a choice. It’s laughable even. Ignoring all of that though, again you’re projecting a lot of your outside opinions onto a character. If you met this awkward, admittedly attractive, science geek, in horribly mismatched clothing and coloured glasses, are you going to automatically think “well shit I never realised this but I’m totally gay!” Probably not, let’s be real.

In summary YES we can all have different head cannons of Holtzmann, or any of the other ladies, they don’t all have to be the same. We all do see different things in the movie. BUT there are some clearly defined aspects of Holtzmann’s character from the movie being actively ignored or twisted.

Why do communists hate anarchists

By this I assume you mean “why do Marxist-Leninists hate anarchists”? Definitely not all MLs will brush aside anarchists, but those who do typically view anarchists as idealists who will never transform society beyond capitalism – smashing the state outright, so the ML argument goes, will merely leave the new society susceptible to imperialist domination from outside and will allow capital to gain a foothold again. I have actually talked with MLs who consider anarchists liberals, so there’s that. I think it’s a case of the hyper orthodox MLs designating all who deviate from the Immortal Science of Dialectical Materialism™ as bourgeois enablers. As I’ve said before, I’m fine with organizing with most of them and such; I just want to see less vanguard party proselytizing and silly-ass comments about anarchists being liberals.

jeonghan/reader + 16. french kiss

word count: 565

“Are french fries actually from France or do they just call them that?”

“Where the hell did that come from?” you asked, staring at your boyfriend who was currently studying a fry like it was a science project. Jeonghan shrugged. “Things from France tend to be nice, no?”

“I’m never buying you fries again,” you muttered, rolling your eyes. He scoffed. “Come on, I’m being serious. Maybe we should go to France sometime.” You snorted. “Maybe, when you get a solid passport and not just a work visa.”

“When Seventeen have a European tour, I’m sending you every and any picture I take in France.”

“This coming from the person who can’t even pronounce ‘Eiffel’ correctly,” you retorted.

“I’m Korean!” Jeonghan replied, struggling to defend himself.

Oddly enough, Jeonghan seemed to continue with his French obsession, wearing berets with striped shirts and imitating a bad accent (”Do I look French enough?” “Add any more white makeup and you’ll look like a fucking mime.”).

Slowly, the obsession died down, and you relented enough to let him take you to a French restaurant downtown in Seoul, and on the way home, you giggled at the memory of his reactions towards the food.

“I didn’t know they actually ate snails!”

“Escargots, my dear.”

He rolled his eyes as he parked the car. 

Inside, you continued laughing at his reactions towards the snails, while he continued attempting to defend his actions. “Even so, thank you for that, Hannie. It was nice. The restaurant, I mean, not the snails.”

Jeonghan smiled, shutting the door behind you. “Of course. You know, there’s one other thing the French seem to have invented that I’ve wanted to try.”

“Oh? What might that be? It doesn’t actually include going to France, does it?”

Jeonghan chuckled, shaking his head and taking your hand. “Nope, come with me.”

Inside your shared bedroom, Jeonghan had truly gone all out, as the room was decorated with rose petals and had candles lit in most places, the room glowing brightly.

“Yoon Jeonghan! Why–what’s all this?!” You exclaimed in surprise, stepping carefully inside the room.

He grinned, leaning against the doorway. “Surprise,” he replied, removing his coat and setting it down on one of the chairs. “I had the guys set this up for us while we were gone, so don’t worry—those candles haven’t been burning for too long.”

You turned. “This is French? I mean, it’s certainly romantic, but damn, I thought it was just romantic in general.”

He laughed. “That’s what I was getting to. You see, I did a bit of research, and to be honest, I’d like you to have the taste of my tongue on the back of your throat for like, the next two days or so.”

You raised in an eyebrow in confusion and slight disgust at his wording, and then made a small ‘ohh’ sound. Pulling him by the shirt collar, you snickered. “If you wanted to French kiss, ya could have just said so.” “Nah. Too awkward for that.” “But not awkward enough to ask for the taste of your tongue on my throat?” “Shut up and let me kiss you.”

In a heap of limbs, you fell into an embrace with him, lips melding to one until you felt his tongue ask for entrance into your mouth.

Needless to say, French kisses seemed to be your favorite thing from France.

Never Been Kissed

This is a drabble for Maplevogel because she likes to pull me into new fandoms and I haven’t written in awhile.  It’s not much.

Never Been Kissed

He should not have said that.

Oh, quiznak, he should not have said that.  

Lance slumped forward and wrapped his arms around his head in embarrassment.

He would never have even said it if he was not sure Voltron was going to explode into a hundred, thousand, million pieces of shrapnel.  He would have kept it to himself.  

He should have kept his freaking mouth shut!  

“At least then I could'a died with some dignity,” he mumbled into the sleeves of his sweater.  “I can’t believe I said that…”

“You know, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about.”

Lance glanced up to see Shiro leaning against the doorframe with an awkward smile on his lips.  He was flexing his cybernetic hand like he was in pain, open and closed, but his eyes were on Lance.


“That you’ve never been kissed,” Shiro clarified.  “It’s okay.  You have lots of time to figure it out.”

Lance groaned.

“But what if I die tomorrow?  Or the next day?  Or on a Tuesday? It’s not like I have a lot of options out in the middle of space. And, I mean, Voltron is really, really cool but defending the galaxy is a little, uhm, dangerous.  Or a lot.  Maybe a lot.”  

Shiro chuckled and stepped through the threshold.  

“You’ll figure it out,” he repeated, smoothing his hair back and kissing Lance on the forehead.  It was almost paternal.  Gentle.  “Sooner than you think.”

For my fellow Muslims who suffer from mental illness, I’d like to share a tip I learned from my wonderful counselor (who I miss so much now that I live out in the boonies and have no access to therapy services anymore).

She was non-Muslim, but upon learning that I was Muslim and learning a little about Islam and what I do during the day as a Muslim, ie praying five times a day, wudu, etc, she taught me to incorporate grounding techniques into my prayers as a way to keep consistent not only spirituality but also in my treatment of my OCD.

I tend to start missing prayer when I have an OCD related anxiety attack. So, she taught me to start using prayer when I’m having good days to teach myself to associate prayer with grounding techniques for when those bad days come. So, for example, every time you pray, either at the beginning, or the end, or both, do 10 deep breaths. Do some grounding techniques. The one she taught me was where you identify five things you can hear, five things you can feel, five things you can see and five things you can smell (if you can). And then, you go around again, this time finding four things of each, three things of each, two, one, etc. So, you do this during prayer (I usually do it afterwards when I do it) and you start implementing it before you have an anxiety attack. 

There is also another technique where you picture your problems written on the side of a train. In your mind, you see the train coming with your problems written on the side of it. You mentally watch the train go by, and then acknowledge the problem exists, but that you are not going to obsess over it, and then mentally watch the train go by, taking your obsessions over the problems with it. I tend to do that technique after making dua and talking to Allah about my problems, because then that helps me not to dwell after taking my worries to Allah and relieves my anxiety a bit.

I found this really helpful to help me not abandon prayer when I have a bad OCD day, or just a bad day in general, because I’ve associated my grounding techniques with prayer or dua, so now prayer is a calming experience for me, not just spiritually, but for treatment, as well. I’m not saying this is a perfect science or that you’ll never miss prayer again because of this, because I know those of us struggling with varying degrees of severity with mental illness will have some dark days. I’m just saying that this can helpful if prayer is something you would like to focus on while also coping with a mental illness. I hope it’s beneficial to someone out there.

Believe It or Not. Part 3.

Summary: Y/n is starting to catch on to the fact that Scott hasn’t been acting like himself lately and neither has Stiles. She decides she should just ask, when that falls through and she gets angry she storms out of class. Only to get an unexpected visitor.

Content: no warnings, more time with y/n & Stiles alone but no fluff, sorry guys I know it’s moving slow but I want to build them up strong(:

(Based off 1x03 “Pack Mentality”)

I was sleeping soundly, I didn’t even hear Scott come home. But I heard his screams. And once I did I ran straight into his room and on his bed, lightly trying to wake him.

“Scott! Scott please wake up!”

He was tossing and turning wildly, but after a few more times of me saying his name he shot up searching for his breath.

“Hey shh, you’re okay.” I tried to comfort him as I hugged him into my chest.

“What were you dreaming about?” I asked hesitantly.

“I-I don’t want to talk about it.” He managed to squeeze in the words between tight breaths.

“You don’t have to.” I whispered in his ear, I held him until he fell back to sleep.
- - -
All that morning Scott seemed really freaked out, he barely said a word to me and I wish I knew how to help. I wish he would talk to me.

I was walking through the halls when both Scott and Stiles ran up to me panicked,

“Have you seen Allison?” Scott asked quickly searching my eyes for an answer.

“No Scotty I haven’t, sorr-”

And again, they just kind of ran away from me. You know im getting really sick of the two people I care about most acting like im not here. I never go a day without talking to them, and now I’ve gone two.
- - -
Im sitting in science class next to Stiles, we’re working on an experiment at the moment but I’m doing most the work.

“Stiles, can you hand me the instructions please.” Nothing, he just kept chewing at his pen.

“Stiles!” I tried again. And this time he heard me.

“Jesus y/n, what?” He snapped at me, rather rudely. I think he realized after it happened that his tone wasn’t necessary because we just stared at each other, that is until Scott turned around and whispered something to Stiles. Stiles leaned closer and so did I, I wanted to know what they were trying to keep so secret.

Maybe I should just ask?
I leaned around Stiles to look at Scott who saw me and looked at me.

“What are you guys talking about” I asked him.

Stiles looked back at me too and then they both looked back at each other, and then again back to me.

“What?” I repeated. “Don’t think that I don’t notice how weird you both have been acting. What’s so bad that you can’t even tell me?” I whisper yelled at both of them. And they looked shocked.

“Y/n-” Scott started, the he just faded off and looked at Stiles for help.
Stiles turned and looked at me, “We can’t tell you, okay? Please stop asking.”

“Fine. No problem, I’ll just stop worrying about my brother and my best friend, no problem.” I was almost crying. Im seriously just worried about Scott, he seems so scared. I can feel how scared he is. Maybe it’s twin telepathy but I want to help.

I got up from my seat and just left class, Mr.Harris tried to stop me but honestly I just wanted to go home I was so frustrated with them.
- - -
I decided I would just go to my room and get some homework done while I had the time. I grabbed a bowl of popcorn and made my way up stairs. When I got there I check the screen of my phone and had 4 missed calls from Scott, and 6 from Stiles. Maybe im overreacting? I don’t know, of course they’re allowed to keep secrets from me, but I don’t think this is about a girl. I think it’s about a lot more. I should probably calm down a little bit though, im still mad about them blowing me off.

It’s literally 7 and Scott hadn’t come home yet, I mean unless he’s all the sudden one of the most popular guys at the school, he’s always home.

I pick up my phone to call him, and then decide other wise. I just really miss him if im being honest. I miss both of them.

Another hour passed and he still hadn’t come home, but I heard a knock on my door. I went downstairs to answer it only to open the door and find Stiles standing there.

“Hi.” I said.

“Can I come in please?” I stepped aside so he could walk in.

“Where’s Scott?”

“Out on his date with Allison,” he sighed, “and Lydia and Jackson.”
I laughed slightly.

“Oh my god no! Poor Scott!” I laughed even more now picturing him getting himself stuck in the situation.

“I know Jackson can be a real dick.” Stiles added, whilst laughing with me now. We were now both sitting on the couch in the front room.

“Jackson?” I said, “What about his spoiled girlfriend?”

Stiles stopped laughing and I realized why.

“Shit Stiles sorry.”

He look at me and placed his hand on my lower thigh. I looked at his hand, and it’s like his touch set that part of my skin on fire and it was spreading through the rest of my body.

“Don’t apologize, that’s what I’m here to do.” He looked at me and I swear I could forgive him just getting lost in his Beautiful golden eyes.

“Im really sorry about Scott and I. There is something else going on, and you have to know we both trust you it’s just- he’s not ready to tell anyone else yet.” He removed his hand from my leg, I wish he hadn’t. We never broke eye contact though.

“I just want to help him.” I whispered.

“In know, ” he said. “And you are, by being the one person in his life right now that has remained normal.”

I engulfed Stiles in a hug right there on the couch. He didn’t return it right away because he was a little shocked. But then he did and he just held me there for few seconds.

“Believe it or not, I’ve actually gotta go meet Scott somewhere soon.” He added while pulling away from me. I moved a piece of hair behind my ear.

I watched him walk out the door, but not before he turned around to give me one quick smile before shutting it.
- - -
I was already in bed when I heard mom come through the front door. She opened my door slightly letting the dim light in.

“Sweetie, you awake?” She asked quietly.

“Mhmm, good night momma.” I whispered back drowsily. And she shut my door. I heard walk down the hallway towards Scott before I heard here scream.

I jumped out of bed and ran to his room only to see Stiles in Scott’s bed and not Scott.

“Seriously Stiles what the hell are you doing here?” My mom yelled while holding a baseball bat.

“What am I doing? Do either of you even play baseball?” He shouted back and then Scott walked through his bedroom

“Can you please tell your friend to use the front door?” She said as she turned to Face Scott.

“But we lock the front door,” he replied, “he wouldn’t be able to get in.”

“Exactly!” My mom and said in unison.

“Well have fun with this mom, im going back to bed.”
Scott’ll be lucky if he’s not in deep shit right now.

Good Enough

Effective Animal Behavior Research

“Educate yourself!” A phrase we eagerly throw around when someone we deem ignorant is saying something we disagree with. And it’s true, some people really need to educate themselves, in particular people who have taken it upon themselves to educate others. 

But how do you educate yourself? I’ve seen the self-education a lot of people come up with… and it’s not pretty. I don’t think anything infuriates an educator more than writing something informative based on science and facts, only to have someone contradict them with isolated-incident anecdotal “evidence”, as if that means all their research and science is wrong on that basis. It’s a bit like saying, “well I’m still alive, so clearly death is a myth.” 

That is not someone who has educated themselves, but rather someone who has never evaluated anything critically, from all possible angles, before coming to an informed conclusion. 

So, again… how do you educate yourself? 

Read. But don’t read indiscriminately. Use discernment. Be critical. Don’t just look at the best seller list, or Oprah’s Book of the Month. Take a look at 1) what topic the book is discussing and 2) who is writing about it. 

Before you even start reading the book, ask yourself: 

  1. Who is the author? 
  2. What are their qualifications to write on this subject? 
  3. Is this an anecdotal book or a scientific book? 
  4. How old is this book? 
  5. What do the author’s peers have to say about this book? 

For example, I picked up the book “Animal Cognition: The Mental Lives of Animals” by Clive D.L. Wynne. I then turned to the back to read the summary. 

“Can ravens count? How do pigeons find their way home? Can chimpanzees use language in a human-like fashion? These are the kinds of questions that occupy scientists interested in understanding animal minds. […] presents a fascinating account of animal intelligence and abilities, covering a wide range of key topics from language and communication to sensation and problem-solving. […] Clive Wynne reviews research on species ranging from fire ants to dolphins […] complex reasoning (do cats understand that objects hidden from view still continue to exist?), balanced by a critical stance towards some of the wilder claims found in the popular media.” 

Now, what does it say about the author? 

“Clive D.L. Wynne is an Associate Professor in Psychology, University of Florida, and studies cognition in species from pigeons to marsupials. He worked previously at universities in Australia, the USA and in Germany, and was educated at University College London and the University of Edinburgh. He is the author of numerous scholarly papers on animal learning and cognition, and is the editor of a book on models of animal behavior, Models of Action: Mechanisms for Adaptive Behavior.” 

So, the author is a professor of psychology who has made numerous contributions to the scholarly world, and the book is handling a topic he is familiar with and has professional experience with. That’s already a good start. The publishing date is 2001, which is somewhat older, so the reader should be critical of the studies being referred to and make sure they are still considered valid. 

The book contains several reviews from his peers—other professors and researchers from various universities—who agree that this book is an excellent source of information, which further indicates the author has a lot to offer on this subject. 

With this information in mind, you can start reading, and as you read, continue to ask yourself the following questions: 

  1. How old is the study they are referring to? Is it still considered a valid source? 
  2. Are they even referring to any valid studies?  
  3. Are they using science and logic to make their argument, or relying on emotional manipulation? 

Use critical thinking while reading. Don’t look for reasons to disagree or agree with the author, but simply pause and ask yourself, “is this a logical conclusion? Does this make sense?” To the best of your ability, try to put aside personal feelings on the subject, whether it’s about the author or about the subject matter. 

When reading a book like this, I take notes. I make note of undeniable truths as they come, and I make note of the author’s personal musings and hypotheses. I also make note of my own personal musings based solely on the information provided. 

Toward the end of the book, I look to see if I reached the same conclusion the author did, and if not, I ask myself why that is the case, and, if necessary, go back and re-read certain aspects that may have confused me, or that I simply may have misunderstood within the context of the book. 

So, now I’ve read an educational book on a subject. I’ve worked through it, and fully understand the logic and science behind it. Am I done now? No. Now it’s time to move on to the next book, the next study, the next journal, and then another, and then another. 

Also, I can’t just read books on animal cognition and call it a day. There are other book focuses that are closely affiliated that have to be studied as well: physiological behavior, ethics, animal science, and animal communication. 

A book on “The Biology of Animal Stress” may have a stronger focus on overall animal welfare, and a book on “Animal Play” or “Principles of Animal Communication” may focus on overall body language and inter-species norms, but they all come together to create one big picture.

Educating yourself is a never-ending process. There will always be a new study to read, and a new theory to work through, and they may end up disproving something we previously regarded as fact. 

Anatomy and physiology changes as animals evolve, and animal behavioral norms change as they adapt to an ever-changing domesticated life. We must always be willing to put aside what we once embraced, and acknowledge the truth. 

 That, is how you educate yourself, and it’s how you educate others.

What you shouldn't do as a teacher

So, I accidentally left my flash drive at school over spring break. I keep my fan fictions on there (because i never know when inspiration is going to hit me and writing it on paper guarantees I’m not going to look at that idea ever again) as well as school projects and stuff.

On my flash drive I have 3 main folders: Assignments, Fan Fiction, and Other. Each folder goes into other mini folders that hold documents for a specific category (ie: Assignments: english, Fanfiction: Youtubers: PewDieCry).

Well, my Computer Science Principles teacher decides to go through my flash drive, go into my Fan Fiction folder, go into my Gravity Falls section, and then goes to BillDip, and print out a chapter of a fic that I wanted to start (all without me knowing).

Out of nowhere, he yells out that I write fan fiction and starts reading off what I have. No one really heard it, but he threw me into a state of panic and had me screaming to give me my flash drive back and to stop. My other friend was trying to yell over him to try and make sure none of my writing reached the further rows.

I finally got my flash drive back, but he didn’t throw away the papers. I had to still myself, and one of the students had the audacity to say “Is she crying?” It shouldn’t matter to you if im crying or not because it’s none of your business what I get emotional about.

Anyways, at the end of class my teacher tried to come up to me and compliment my writing, but I didn’t want to hear it. I dont know if I should report him or what but im unbelievably pissed.

What in the world is wrong with the world?
My parents were children at the end of WW2. Their lives were shaped by the horrors their parents experienced. I grew up learning not to waste, to be tough because life was harsh, to work hard and not complain.
If you’ve seen my photos you know how much I cherish every part of this wonderful planet that we live on. I marvel at the perfection found in each petal of a flower, feel my heart roar watching crows battle atop stormy winds outside my bedroom window and stand outside until my fingers and toes are numb to take pictures of fast-freezing ice bubbles because their beauty leaves me breathless.
You’ll notice that I don’t take pictures of people…
Nature was my first childhood friend. It nurtured and taught me in a non-judgemental, never-ending classroom without walls. It gave me everything and asked for nothing in return.
As our planet does for everyone on it.
It’s humans who created a price. As if they owned the earth. They have taken, hoarded, killed for, locked up, stolen, depleted, poisoned, destroyed and consumed anything and everything.
And here we go again.
I’m trying to be optimistic about the future but history is not a good liar when it comes to believing in positive, long-term change in human behaviour. How many times do we have to say “never again?”
That said, the current groundswell movement, by the people, for the protection of the people and the planet gives me hope.
I leave you with this ice bubble picture, so symbolic for our planet; its beauty, fragility, complexity, part science/part miracle, floating through space in all its wonder.
If you, too, are feeling crushed by the state of the world, go to my Tumblr feed and find the Ice Bubble video I posted a while ago and read the comments. People have commented, in all different languages from all over the world, how happy this mini-iceage-planet makes them. To date, 79,952 have clicked the heart icon.
They give me hope.

May fic rec and OTP soundtrack

Hi everyone!

So, this month is nearly over. With it came good things (like CACW) but also very, very bad things (fuck you Marvel for this Hydra!Cap…).
In a month, I watched the entire 5 seasons of Teen Wolf and discovered myself a new OTP (and a very big one ^^): Sterek.
Needless to say that this month rec is mostly going to be about it so sorry (not really ;) ).
I’ll also have one or two Stucky fic, and of course, my OTP soundtrack (songs I listened to while reading,songs that I think correspond to the OTP because of the lyrics or music or because of a little something I can’t describe).

If I post a fic rec, it’s because I liked it :) 

Don’t hesitate to recommend music or fit :)

You can find all my bookmarks on AO3 here.

All my thanks to @theofficialstereklibrary you guys are amazing and your blog is my number 1 reference.

Thank you to all the authors. I don’t know what I would do without your work.

- This is Where it All Begins…  by Hannahlenore  It truly is where it all begins cause it was the first Sterek I read (and it got me into the Soulmate marks).

“The pack is living in an alternate universe where all supernatural creatures are born with (or appeared when bitten) a “soul mark,” that matches the one of their soul mate. It can be a star, a lightning bolt or just as simple as a red triangle. But, when Stiles gets his, tying him to a supernatural creature, they are all shell-shocked when it comes as a triskele.Is his life over?

Will he ever gain the strength to tell Derek?
Will him and Derek ever get together?
Also… What is wrong with him?This is where it all begins…”

Too Familiar by Rehfan  

“Derek’s family has had it. He’s too grumpy. They want him to get a boyfriend.
Enter: Deaton as matchmaker.
The only problem is: the match he has in mind for Derek isn’t looking for a boyfriend - he’s looking for a familiar.”

- Cornerstone by Vendelin (Tumblr: @ljummen )

One of my absolute favorite <3

“Suffering from PTSD, ex-Marine Derek Hale moves back to Beacon Hills to open a bookshop and find a calmer life. That’s where he meets Stiles, completely by accident. Stiles is talkative, charming and curious. Somehow, despite the fact that he’s blind, he’s able to read Derek like no one else.”

- Ring of truth by exclamation

“When John Stilinski got a call about someone acting suspiciously in a jewellery store, he didn’t expect to find Derek Hale looking at engagement rings. Despite all the dangers Derek has faced, somehow buying a ring is his most challenging battle.”

- Kaleidoscope by Vendelin (Tumblr: @ljummen )

My other favorite!

Stiles spends a year before college working at the all-night coffee shop in town. It’s nice and quiet, until one dark and brooding Derek starts coming in every morning, ordering coffee so strong that it should not be fit for human consumption. Ever. Stiles tries not to be affected by the mystery guy, but it’s not like anything else happens around here, so really, what did you expect? And when he’s already in too deep, he realises he might even be in way over his head…”

- Riding the Lightning by Vendelin

Stiles finds himself on the doorstep to his home in Beacon Hills, not remembering how he got here or why he’s barefoot. As it turns out, he was abducted a couple of weeks earlier from a college party and bears the same marks on his body as victims of a serial killer his dad just can’t seem to get a hold of. So there he is, with no memories of what happened, the last couple of weeks like a blank line in his mind and knowing all too well that he’s the best shot they have at catching this guy. As a key witness and in acute, assumed danger, he finds himself under surveillance 24/7 and more often than not, his dad’s best Deputy: Derek Hale, is sitting at his kitchen table.”

- The View From My Window by primroseshows

Derek is a glassblower on the hunt for new ideas. His assistant Scott has some artist friend named Stiles.”

- Diamond by ericaismeg

“Allison and Lydia own an wedding planning company called, Allydia Diamond Events. Stiles has been working for them for four years as their caterer. Their latest client? Erica Reyes from high school. She brings in Derek Hale with her.Derek used to hate Stiles in high school, and he clearly still does. That doesn’t stop Stiles from crushing on his client - knowing he’s getting married doesn’t stop him.Only Derek’s not getting married to Erica. He’s just lost his ability to speak around Stiles. Again.”

- When They Bloomed series by Lion_ness (Tumblr: @lion–ness )

Another absolute gem

“Derek is the alpha of a pack of young wolves who are busy finding babysitters, planning holidays, holding jobs and clinging to normalcy. When Peter pitches the idea to plant flowers on the Hale property, Derek doesn’t quite take him seriously. That is until he walks into the little floral shop off 1st and Oakheart and meets the strange young man from out of town, Stiles Stilinski.”

- the Rory to my Amy series by linksofmemories

A really really great one. I’m more than impressed by all this work.

“Derek is Scott’s older brother. Stiles is Scott’s best friend. Derek is falling in love with Stiles. This is a bit of a problem.”

- Pictures Of You by charlesdk (Tumblr: @hoechlbutt )

Prompt: “how about photographer!derek and model!stiles with derek taking sneaky pictures of stiles on set laughing/eating and sitting around reading in his glasses every time they shoot together? (maybe laura steals the pictures and publishes them -maybe with quotes derek said about stiles when he thought no one was listening- and that’s how stiles finds out about derek’s crush on him?)"”

- between the click of the light and the start of the dream by thepsychicclam (Tumblr: @thepsychicclam )

I’m in love with this one. Really.

“A twig snaps, and then Stiles hears breathing and the rustle of leaves. He strains to get a better glimpse into the darkness, but it’s pointless. There’s nothing but a black void.

It’s Stiles’ senior year, and he’s trying to concentrate on normal things - like the lacrosse championship, spring break, prom, graduation (and definitely not Derek) - when he starts having nightmares and waking up in the middle of nowhere. Oh yeah, and he’s being haunted by a hag. Great.”

- Snow Flirting by thepsychicclam

“As Beacon Hills get pounded with foot after foot of snow, single dad Stiles can’t quite keep up with his four year old, his job, and shoveling his driveway. Derek makes his teenage son shovel Stiles’ walk, and that just leads to Derek helping Stiles out with a whole bunch of other tasks. That’s okay with Derek, though, cause any chance to be with Stiles is okay with him.”

- sometimes fate is like a small snowstorm by thepsychicclam

“In a coffee shop two days before Christmas, Derek meets Stiles. Despite neither of them being interested in relationships, they spend an unforgettable evening together, but then part ways. During the following years, Stiles competes in the Olympics, Derek tours the world - and neither of them forget. Then twelve years later, two days before Christmas, Derek finds Stiles in that same coffee shop.aka a kinda sorta serendipity au”

- Didn’t imagine this happening by Shippings_galore

Derek surprises Stiles at school by coming back. And Theo doesn’t like it. A week later, there are hunters and Stiles is in danger. Well who’s fault is that?”

- The Curly Fries Show with Stiles Stilinski by howl-to-the-wind (green leaf)

Amazing! I sometimes laughed way too hard. I highly recommend it.

“ “Curly fries are only for the brave, so is love.”

Five times Stiles interviewed celebrities for his popular YouTube show, ‘The Curly Fries Show with Stiles Stilinski’, and one time he was the one interviewed.


Five times Stiles hung out with his attractive, adorable, bashful, architect building-mate Derek Hale and one time he hung out with his attractive, adorable, bashful, architect building-mate, boyfriend Derek Hale.”

- Murder, He wrote by mklutz

And that was how Stiles accidentally became a New York Times bestselling author.”

- He blinded me with library science by klutz

Stiles blinks. “Right, the reading room. Do you have your, uh …library card?” he asks. He’s never been able to make that sound normal and not vaguely dirty when he actually means wand.”

The title. And I’m not gonna lie I love this track

- By Imagine Dragons:

Battle Cry  

“Stars are only visible in darkness / Fear is ever-changing and evolving / And I have been poisoned inside / But I, I feel so alive”


“I’m only a man with a candle to guide me / I’m taking a stand to escape what’s inside me / A monster, a monster / I’ve turned into a monster /A monster, a monster / And it keeps getting stronger.”

I see it as Stiles speaking during 3B. 

Deathbeds by Bring Me The Horizon

a sad, sad song but fucking beautiful

That little kiss you stole / It held my heart and soul / And like a ghost in the silence I disappear / Don’t try to fight the storm / You’ll tumble overboard / Tides will bring me back to you”

Just need your love by Hyphen Hyphen

So, about this one. I just pictured it as a song playing in one of this party Teen Wolf has the secret. And I really could see Derek and Stiles dancing ^^ (and the lyrics, it’s like they’re talking to each other, especially this part)

“You’re always so near we’re always so far / We come from the dust where we hopelessly rise / You’re running the fever desire’s so fine / You come from the fire you’re always mine “

It’s one of my favorite song ever. Everything is perfect. And to me, it applies well to Sterek. In every way.

“And I’ve moved further than I thought I could / But I missed you more than I thought I would 

And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be / Right in front of me / Talk some sense to me”

- By Our Last Night

The heart wants what it wants (cover)

I can see Derek fighting over this, and Stiles saying:

“The bed’s getting cold and you’re not here / The future that we hold is so unclear / But I’m not alive until you call / And I’ll bet the odds against it all / Save your advice ‘cause I won’t hear / you might be right but I don’t care / There’s a million reasons why I should give you up / But the heart wants what it wants / The heart wants what it wants”

Maps (cover) 

I hear your voice in my sleep at night / Hard to resist temptation / 'Cause something strange has come over me / And now I can’t get over you / No, I just can’t get over you”

Same Old War (acoustic version)

Derek begins to loose faith in everything but Stiles, and Stiles is here for him

“Stay strong, keep moving, can’t let the darkness blind us / Carry on, we’ll be the ones that pull the stars down to us / Stay strong, keep moving, can’t let the darkness blind us / Carry on, we’ll be the ones that pull the stars down to us”

It’s a series of letter by my dear James Buchanan Barnes and they are simply amazing!!!!!!!!

Go read them here!

To finish with this post, I just wanted to say that I’m more than pissed of with Marvel. They fucked everything up. I seriously hope that this Hydra!Cap is just a big joke and even if it is (which I highly doubt), Marvel and Nick Spencer, you have no right to do that.

That was one of the first things the junta did. Like, what they’re doing is so blatant and it parallels 64 so eerily.
