6 Things People Don't Always Tell You About Studying

1. you ace tests by overlearning. you should know your notes/flashcards/definitions basically by heart. if someone asks you about a topic when you’re away from class or your notes and you can answer them in a thorough and and accurate answer, then you’re good, you know the material. 

2. if you don’t understand something, it will end up on the test. so just don’t disregard and hope that this specific topic won’t be on the test. give it more attention, help, and practice. find a packet of problems on that one concept and don’t stop until you finish it and know it the best. 

3. sometimes you just need that Parental Push. you know in elementary school, they would tell you “ok now it’s time for you to do your homework! you have a project coming up, start looking for a topic now!” ONE of your teachers might be like this. be thankful for it and follow their advice! these teachers are the best at always keeping you on track with their calendar. if not a teacher, then have one of your friends be that person that can keep you accountable for the things you promised you would do. 

4. you just need to kick your own ass. seriously. i know it sucks and its hard to study for two things at once. BUT. I DONT CARE IF IT’S HARD. you need to do it and at least do it to get it over with because you can’t keep putting things off. If you do, you will eventually run out of time and you will hate yourself. force yourself to do it. i made myself sign up for june ACT even though there’s finals because if i didn’t, i probably never would. like do i think i’m gonna be ready in one month? probably not, SO I BETTER GET ON IT AND START STUDYING! 

5. do homework even if it doesn’t count. if you actually try on it, then you will actually do so much better on the tests, it’s like magic. 

6. literally just get so angry about procrastinating that you make yourself start that assignment. I know how hard it is to kick the procrastination habit. I have to procrastinate. So I make myself start by thinking about my deadlines way early. I think, “oh i have a presentation in three weeks (but it really takes 2 weeks to do), i’ll be good and start today.” when that doesn’t happen, you say you’ll do it tomorrow, and this happens for like the next four days. I get so mad at myself for not starting when i am given a new chance to do so with every passing day. By that time, you actually have exactly how much time you need for it AND you were able to procrastinate the same way you usually do ;)

I came across this short documentary in an ice show and through this, we can see how much the disaster affected Yuzu (this cut is from yusu01207′s video, thank you so much for uploading it)

Earlier part for context:

He went to Ishinomaki, Miyagi (an area that was hit really hard in 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami) in June 2014 to thank the junior high schoolers there for their support for him during Sochi.

Narr: He decided to go there after much hesitation

Y: I was wondering if I should go. I’ve been thinking a lot whether anything would change if I go. It feels like (going) would be trampling all over people’s feelings.

Narr: His sensitive heart continues to shake/waver

[He went to a hill where you can see how the disaster destroyed a very big area where there used to be many houses and people.]

Y: I wonder if they made it up this far (to the hill to escape)…

Rough translation of this cut:

[talking with local people who recognized him]

Woman: You look great now that I see in person, your face is so small, and you look really smart….

Man: So you get recognized everywhere you go?

Yuzu: Just recently….*laughs*

Man: Everything, from my wife, my house, my dog, to my cabin, prefab,… everything and everyone were washed away, there was nothing left.

Woman: Even his wife were washed away…

Narr: the harsh reality of Ishinomaki, the harsh reality of the earthquake disaster

Woman: Thank you very much!

Man: Please keep doing your best! I will be watching you from TV.

Yuzu: Thank you very much! (after parting with them) It’s heart-breaking, so painful! Though I’m happy that (my performances) pleased them, afterall, it’s hard/painful! Though they are smiling right now, to come this far, how much troubles they had to suffer through,… when I think about it, I feel so guilty *laughs* This is hard, so painful, it’s so painful I tell you *laughing while holding his chest and wiping his nose*

[when he walked down the path where many houses were washed away; it is reported that 3529 people died and 436 are still missing]

Yuzu: When I think that there used be real houses here, at night everyone slept here, the weight of those numbers is just… (too much)

Personally this is just so heartbreaking for me. Also, you can see how hard it is for Yuzuru, his body language clearly showed he was suffering: he keeps blinking, wiping his nose, and tried to laugh it off while holding his chest.

Still, the latter part of the video is actually much more positive so if please watch more of it in the link guys!

[edit] I made some correction in the translation. Thank you so much to @tadakixd for pointing out my mistakes. Please message me if you guys see any mistake in this as well, mistakes are a part of learning afterall :D

KCON 2017 LINE UP

OK so after freaked out a lot I just couldn’t believe something like this. The line up is really perfect and incredible, but to beautiful to be true. I just got so excited when I saw this that I wanted to share it without check it first.

First of all I think is fake, and I am so sorry for sharing something like this. This are the reasons why I think is fake:

First of all the Dates: for the LA concert says June 29 (this could be just a mistake and on wikipedia is changed but is really weird) This are my original images that my friend sent me

And this are screenshots from my computer with the dates changed.

Also I doubt Monsta X, BTS, Astro, NCT 127, Red Velvet and EXO. Why? because all those groups except EXO are going to attend to KCON Mexico and I don’t think they can attend to all the America Kcons, also BTS is having their tour so they are going to have their schedules really tight. And EXO doesn’t do KCONs since the first KCON.

Also the official page hasn’t announced anything about the KCON USA attendees

Also I don’t think is possible to put EXO and BTS on the same day, because of the fans problems and also because they are both strong groups, also The number of attendees is something really weird, On new York are 9 attendees and on LA 13.

Last year they announced some attendees for both Kcons in February/March, but not all were confirmed until June.

I am not sure howsoever if this is made up, or filtered information but at least I’m sure that this is not the official line up yet. (I wish it tho because I love a lot of those groups)

Again sorry for posted this without the proper research, and for spreading unofficial information, I just was very excited like everyone (Please help me to reblog this, because a lot of people thinks this is actually true)

Again, I think is not true, I want it to be true and I hope this to be true but I don’t really think so.

Ruki quit smoking, now he vapes (Radio Jack June 23)

Kai (reading mail): “Recently, I’ve been thinking about quitting smoking. I know I should, but it’s pretty hard. What would the members think if their girlfriend smoked?” –oh, not a girlfriend, but she asked what we think when we see a woman smoking.

Ruki: Oh, this is hard…

Kai: Smoking eh – but, you don’t really smoke recently, do you?

Ruki: Yeah, I use iqos now

Kai: You switched to iqos

(*it’s an electronic cigarette)

Kai: So, how is it?

Ruki: Since smoking iqos I’m like, I’m never gonna smoke cigarettes again

(Kai laughs)

Ruki: What really made me like, damn, was that I realized how annoying smokers are.

Kai: (laughs) Ah, like, from the point of view of a smoker…

Ruki: I like, didn’t realize how bad it smelled…

Kai: Yeah, when you get home you can really smell it.

Ruki: Yeah, you can tell.

Kai: Hmm, so what about women smoking…?

Ruki: Women smoking…well, I’m sorry this is gonna sound sexist lol but…it doesn’t look good

Kai: (laughing) Yeah, it doesn’t look good!

Ruki: It doesn’t matter how classy you are while smoking…

Kai: Yeah, well this is just our personal opinion…it’s just not very nice.

Ruki: It looks like they’re pissed off at something

Kai: (laughing) Yeah, I guess it’s kind of scary.  

Ruki: I was walking in Shimokitazawa, and I saw this woman walking while smoking.

Kai: Walking while smoking!? In this day and age!?

Ruki: Yeh

(*there’s like special designated areas to smoke outside so ppl are expected to go in there)

Ruki: She had a guitar, I guess she was in a band with men and women (he’s clicking a pen jus so u kno) and she was smoking it like PFFAHH, and she didn’t look especially rocker-like or anything, she was this normal…

Kai: She was carrying a guitar, but she didn’t look like a rocker

Ruki: Yeah yeah yeah, PAAH (Ruki’s sound effect for someone smoking heavily)

Kai: The way she was smoking was rock (laughs)

Ruki: It was rock.

Both all over each other: Yes, so, it doesn’t look very nice, but let’s try to smoke in a way that doesn’t inconvenience others, yes, pay attention to the place, and, yes,

What I think will work vs What I think won’t about a Season 3 of Sense8

Let’s start with what made us believe there was still hope after what happened on June 29th.

While this could have been but there just to calm us, it could mean nothing (or it could mean anything) 

BUT

I also know something else, the way we worked until now won’t help us have a season 3. Commenting on each and every Netflix post, ask season 3 etc, it won’t. It would just make us look like people who will never get satisfied. 

But this doesn’t mean that we can’t do something, we can actually do a whole lot of stuff.

For first, we have to make the show more popular each and every day, propone it to your friends, to people you meet. Maybe post it a few times on your social, make people curious. We don’t have to trust netflix on promoting this show, for them is already dead. They’re doing the finale to shut us up, not to engage new people. The more it becomes famous, the more they will see profit on it. 

Ask for merchandising! DVD, funko pops, official t-shirts! Ask journalist to invite the actors, engage with magazines and influential people who are showing support. - That would make them see a profit on talking more about it. 

Interact with the actors, follow them on social media! You think this won’t mean anything but the more famous and influential a person is on there internet the more chance to get interviewed etc there are. See how many “social media influencer” are all over the place for…reasons. 

The bottom line is: KEEP PROMOTING THIS SHOW. I and I’m sure more people will keep events every once in a while to keep the attention on it (Like the appreciation day, who went SO good, or the other hastags like #WeAreTheGlobalCluster), but even in your close circle of friends, keep on sharing the love. <3 

Spot’s first note had been almost subconscious. He’d just gotten two new notebooks, and while one already had three pages full of writing, the second had barely been opened.

It was second nature to reach down beneath the coffee table and grab a notebook and pen while the news played, and when he saw the blank page he wrote down the first thing he thought of.

March 18
His tiny smile when the dog sighs.

And after that, that particular notebook was always kept with the others underneath the coffee table, and whenever Spot noticed Race do something he thought was cute, he jotted it down with the date.

April 10
The way his nose crinkles when he laughs.

April 16
The way he pauses when his voice cracks while he’s singing.

May 2
The way his hair looks with flour in it.

Slowly, page after page filled with little notes, and slowly, Race started to notice how the smallest red notebook came out and was put away pretty quickly.

June 4
His weird laugh when he’s really tired.

Spot scribbled a little title for the notebook inside the front cover in July, and was halfway through the notebook by October.

November 23
The way he raises his eyebrows when there’s a ridiculous answer on one of his tests

December 13
How excited he gets about setting up the Christmas tree.

December 25
How he gets up at six for Christmas even though he’s a grown man.

Slowly, note after note, the little notebook filled up, until Spot finally filled the last line.

February 20
The way he dances while cooking even though there’s no music playing.

And the next morning, right before Race left for work, Spot slipped the notebook underneath the food in his lunch bag.

And Race found it while eating, and before anyone commented on it, he hid it in his pocket for later.

Period six was a planning period, so there weren’t any kids in his room at all, and he unwrapped the package to find the tiny red notebook Spot had been writing in for almost a year.

Reasons I can’t fall out of love with Antonio Higgins

March 18
His tiny smile when the dog sighs.

March 19
That weird little half smile he has when he doesn’t want to admit he finds something funny.

Page after page was full of tiny, one sentence, sappy things.

April 1
The way he thinks I’m still really falling for the same five pranks every April Fools.

April 9
The way he keeps laughing about the same five pranks because to him they never get old

May 3
The way his eyes light up when a song he knows comes on.

Page after page was filled with dates and phrases. Some were things Race recognized, like June 8, “the way he chews on the ends of his red pens.” Some, he had no idea he did.

July 3
The way he automatically reaches out to touch my arm when I sigh.

Spot had made a note of every little thing he’d noticed, and Race thought it was the sweetest thing he’d ever seen.

With a smile, he pulled out his phone and sent a text.

“February 23. The way he thinks he can hide how much of a sap he is.”

The Kids - Part 2

can you do a part two for the kids, if that’s okay? i really enjoyed it

Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four


I somehow end up at Polly’s. She’s not over the moon to see me at just gone four in the morning, but she lets me in anyway.

I’ve been crying the whole way here and I know I must look a state, but Polly ushers me in and points to the kitchen table.

“Sit. Kids doing your head in?” she asks, putting the kettle on the stove.

I know she’s judging me and I know she’s preparing her “I basically raised those boys myself and ran a business when they went to war” speech that I’ve heard every time I’ve so much as hinted that the kids can be hard work.

I shake my head.

“Kids are fine,” I mumble.

“Then what is it?”

The tears I’d managed to control start up again and I explain things to Polly as best I can through heavy sobs.

She cuddles me, a gesture I never thought I’d get from her, and makes me up a bed.

“I’ll let work know you won’t be in. Just take a day in bed, get yourself sorted and then you can tackle this with a clear head,” she says, drawing the curtains. “And I won’t tell John you’re here.”

I nod my thanks to her, my eyes already closing and I’m practically asleep before she even closes the door.

In Your Head - Part 2

Jughead Jones x Reader 

Reader: Y/N 

Brother: Y/B/N

Summary: You are almost 3 months into a relationship with Jughead Jones. You are going through a tough time being too much in your head as the anniversary of “that night” comes closer. Jughead can sense something is wrong.

Warnings: Features sexual content, as well as a rape flashback and parental abuse. Please don’t read if easily triggered.


The final bell rang of the day. You closed your locker and made your way outside. You had several minutes until your bus left. That was the plus side of a small town, there was only 3 of them. You waited for when Jughead would meet you goodbye, until *SLAM*! Your bag and books went flying with some loose paper tossed along with it. You looked up to some laughter coming from Reggie and Chuck and you glared back. Chuck gave you a long stare looking you up and down until you looked away. You counted back from 10 in your head, focused on grabbing your stuff while gently saying out loud “breathe, just breathe”. 

You heard a fast pace of shoes behind you, “you okay”?!?! Jughead grabbed the rest of your stuff before looking up to see that Reggie and Chuck were walking away still laughing. 

He stood up with determination and you grabbed his arm looking up at him “always”. 

“They shouldn’t do that to you, let alone anyone else…” his glare was still on the two teenagers. 

You grasped his hand, “Hey, Pops later”? You eyed him with a reassuring nod. 

“Okay”, he huffed some air before grasping the bottom of your jaw, pulling you in with your hand and giving you a long kiss. It was a rather change of pace than the typical PDA at school, as neither of you were too into shoving it in anyone’s face. His lips felt soft, and were kissing you with purpose. His embrace felt secure and you had never felt safer.  

“Geez, let her breathe!” Kevin spoke up. You looked at Jughead gleefully as he released your lips, “I got to go and meet Y/B/N. See you tonight?” While you weren’t always 100 percent you could, you asked anyway. 

“Yeah. Betty, Kevin and I are going to go through the “murder board” again”. 

“My dad likes to tell me things he probably shouldn’t about the case”. Kevin seemed happy about that though. 

“Alright, I’ll message you later”. You waved your hand to Kevin and gave a quick peck to Jughead before making it to your bus while looking back to give another smile behind you. 

You sat in your usual spot looking out into the parking lot of the school, seeing Chuck and Reggie get into a car together. Your body tensed up, repeating again “breathe, just breathe”. You got out your novel, and began to read. Trying to escape out of the current world you were in, even if for 15 minutes.

                                                   * * * * * * * * * * * 

You looked up from your book after about half a chapter and got off 2 stops before your usual block. You had made it to the middle school about 3 minutes until their bell rang. Still walking with your nose in your book, you stopped to lean against the wall next to the bike rack. Their bell, while higher pitched than the tone you have grown accustomed to at your own school, rang. 

A few moments later, you were greeted by Y/B/N and slowly started to walk together. You cornered the page on the sentence you finished and looked to him, “So how was the presentation”? 

“Good, I forgot a part of it but was able to make a joke about it. Teacher gave me a B”. He adjusted the poster with Aristotle’s picture on it. 

“Ah, 7th grade….you were a simpler time…” you gave a slight smirk pertaining to the sardonic tone in your voice. 

“Yeah yeah….but thanks for helping me with it”. 

“Yeah sure Bud. Whenever you need it. So, I made plans tonight, you think everything will be okay so I can meet up with everyone”? Your voice got a little more stern. 

“Yeah, I mean she is usually better when Dad is out of town. You should be fine”. You nodded. It had been a while since an incident, actually since about your birthday that June. 

“I think it helped that you grew like a weed over the summer…” you started to joke with your hands of how short you were now compared to that of Y/B/N. You made it to the outside your house and entered as usual through the garage. You made sure your stuff was away and that your brothers poster was put in the shed with the other school things. You came back in the house, and said hi to your mother gently. She ignored the greeting. You chalked up the courage into talking about going to Pops tonight. 

She slightly grunted, “homework”? 

“Not much. I was going to take some of it with me and then finish the rest of my math when I got back”. You tried to say as surely as you could before talking a deep breath. “Um, I got invited to Veronica’s house and Betty was going to be there too”. You knew your mother wouldn’t approve of a party, let along a large one at the likes of Cheryl’s house. So you refrained from fully lying but rather decided to keep her only aware of where you would be staying. 

“When?” Your mother didn’t look up while stirring her cream into her coffee.

“Tomorrow night. I’m meeting Betty at her house so there won’t be a problem driving me”. You glared down at your feet. 

“Fine, but I’m not picking you up either”. She went back to the TV and plopped down sipping her coffee. You made sure you were out of sight before you smiled. 

You went to the kitchen to make something for Y/B/N before grabbing towels to go into the laundry. You grabbed some homework out of your bag, glanced at yourself in the mirror by the door and were on your way. Before leaving the outer area of the house, you texted Y/B/N, “there’s food in the fridge for ya”. You looked up to Y/B/N’s window and he gave a slight wave from his room. 

                                               * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

You grabbed your book back out and began your walk. The plus side of this town, versus the last one, was that you could walk to anywhere important pretty quick. You had the diner in your view, as well as a familiar car out front. You gently, breathed before looking up to seeing both Betty and Jughead in the window. He looked up from his laptop and gently smiled at you. You went through the door - another bell dinged. 

You were greeted by Pop who asked what you wanted. 

“Just a strawberry shake, thanks”. You weren’t really hungry. You gave a quick smile before hearing a familiar voice talking with Cheryl behind you. You deemed your focus on Jughead and slid into the booth next to him. 

“Hey”, he squeezed your knee slightly while giving you a peck on your cheek before grabbing a fry from his plate. Luckily, it seemed Cheryl and Chuck were done with Pops and started to leave. You could at least have all of your focus on the beanie capped boy next to you. You heard the ding again and looked up to see Chuck give a slight stare again before Betty had sat back down with her burger in hand and giving you your shake. 

“Ugh, I loathe that man”, Betty rolled her eyes. 

“A common feeling we share”, you looked at your shake while Betty gave a slight questionable look. At that point you had all started to talk about your day with the Blue and Gold included. Once again, it was a nice feeling to have friends. 

                                                     * * * * * * * * * * *

 *heavy breathe* 

You stumbled over a rock, looking down at your ripped and wrinkled dress. You were cold and lost your cardigan somewhere but weren’t going to give a chance going back there. You wiped the tears from your face just trying to focus on your walk home. Your hands wouldn’t stop shaking and not just because you were cold. Looking down, you hadn’t realized your tears hadn’t stopped yet. You heard a car and scurried into the side of a tree, making sure no one saw you. You tripped and your bare feet hit something. You hid before trying to make yourself stop crying again. You hear a horn….

 *scream* 

You woke straight up again but along with a cold sweat, this time you had some tears running down your face. You swiped the alarm off your phone, and tried to focus on your day once again.

Im not sure how much you might know about UK politics, but if Teresa May loses the general election next week it'll be the "end of May in early June" (I made that pun in front of my friend and she slapped me)

I know more about UK politics than you’d think (which is still not as much as I’d like)

day 4 - “sorry, i wasn’t paying attention because your face is so distracting”

“—so when they go for a low sweep, you can jump and hit them with your special attack—”

Adrien nodded along, hardly listening to a word Ladybug was saying.

Not that advice on Ultimate Mecha Strike 3 tactics from Ladybug wasn’t worth listening to. He had firsthand of knowledge of how much butt she kicked in that game.

(Probably not as good as Marinette, who was half of France’s champion collège team, but still very good.)

No, he couldn’t focus because of Ladybug.

It was the same problem Adrien sometimes had during akuma battles. He’d be ready and willing to lay down his life for his fellow man. Then Ladybug would give him a wink, or a teasing flick of her finger, or just a look. Then Chat Noir returned to his usual strutting and one-liners, all calculated to catch his lady’s attention, instead of fighting the akuma.

He’d gotten better at staying focused since their rookie days. But, in many ways, it was a lot harder than it used to be.

Now, instead of imagining what it would be like for Ladybug to turn her affections his way, he knows. He knows the flutter of her hands over his shoulders, the hushed declarations in his ear, and the soft press of her lips on his as she pulled him down to her height.

And when she spoke so animatedly about the video game in front of her, her face lit with the joy and excitement of sharing her hobby with her boyfriend (he was her boyfriend!), Adrien felt his concentration slipping, lost in the energetic movements of his beloved.

“Did you get all that?” Ladybug asked, turning to him with sparkles in her eyes.

Adrien’s lips quirked up before spreading into a grin.

“Sorry, I wasn’t paying attention,” he told her softly. “Your face was too distracting.”

Too lovely, too gorgeous, too beautiful to let him think clearly, and he couldn’t be happier.

Ladybug lifted a hand to her cheek, then pouted.

“You’re one to talk, Mr. Model,” she said, her face flushing in time with his. “I can’t count how many hours of sleep I’ve lost because of your face.”

He had a reply on the tip of his tongue, a line he would normally save for when he was behind the mask.

But Ladybug was here now. He could hold her by the waist, pull each other close enough that each of them could feel the other’s body heat.

She chose Adrien, out of all the people in the world, and like hell he wasn’t going to take advantage of it.

“What about my lips?” he asked with an exaggerated waggle of his eyebrows, revelling in Ladybug’s sudden snort.

It made it all the more sweeter when she said, “I think we need more data,” and yanked him in for a kiss.

Family Gatherings

Family gatherings are not words generally associated with the individuals who make up Gotham’s vigilantes. Strategy meetings, subterfuge, infighting, assassin, spy, creepy, know it all. These are terms they are well versed in. This is why the text message that Bruce sent out at 9 am on Saturday was such a surprise.

I request that all of you come to the manor for a family gathering at 7. Alfred will be serving dinner promptly at 7:30. What the hell is that supposed to mean Tim?!” Dick could practically hear his little brother shrugging on the other end of the phone.

“I dunno. Maybe he wants to go over his will.”

“That’s not funny and you know it.”

“C'mon Dick! Like you have a better explanation?”

Dick sighed and rubbed the back of his neck. “No. Do you think everyone will come?”

“I know Steph and Harper will out of pure curiosity. Everyone else,” Tim paused and took a deep breath, releasing the rest of his sentence on the exhale, “who knows.”

Dick nodded, not really caring that he couldn’t be seen as habit was habit. “Ok. Well Damian will be, Cass for sure, Babs is going to be there cause she hates being out of the loop, Jason…” Dick trailed off, looking down at his bare feet. He’d woken to find the text blinking at him from a half dead phone screen. Knowing that he’d have seen it already too Dick immediately called Tim and had been pacing around the apartment in his pajamas with the now nearly dead cell to his ear.

“Yeah,” Tim said empathically.

“Maybe he’ll come for Alfred?” Dick tried.

“You know him better than I do.”

“You’re right. And I don’t even know why he does half the things he does. I’ve gotta charge my phone. I’ll see you later?”

Tim snorted. “Of course you do. Alright, yeah. I’m meeting up with Tam soon anyway. Bye.”

“Bye,” Dick frowned at the phone. Now that the call with Tim had ended it had returned to the group chat Bruce had sent his text in. Not a single person had replied and Bruce likely didn’t expect them to. Just that they showed up. He stuck it on a charger in the living room and went to get a shower. After breakfast Dick collapsed onto the couch. Having wrapped up a case the night before he decided to reward himself with some video games.

I made it! 😁 Rome is an incredible place, I’m excited to be back! 😄🏛💕 I can’t wait to see everyone this weekend at the Roma Cartoon Festival and show Rome my newest prints! 😆✨ Like “Capuchina” 💀🌈 It’s super fitting because last June was when I visited the Capuchin Monk tombs and was inspired by the bizarre artistic configurations of the bones. ⚰☠It really made me think about how life and how the passing of a person becomes part of history 🥀 Death can be sad, but it can be seen as a beautiful thing too! 🌷✨ I hope this trip inspires me even more and I’m so thankful to be back! ❤

Day 9: Book That Changed How You Think 

Around the time I graduated high school, I was struggling a lot with feeling like I’d accomplish anything in life. I felt unmoored and like I had no purpose in many ways. But, near the end of the school year, I read I Am the Messenger and it made me realize that little deeds change the world just as much as the big do. Even if I never start a revolution or become famous or whatever, it doesn’t mean I’m not worth something. Just being a little kinder, a little more accepting, a little more willing to listen and help people is enough. I am enough. 

So, that has become my goal in life: to become a messenger message, like Ed, and show everyone that to just try and be a little more than you think you can be, to step outside of yourself and do for others can change everything for the better. You just have to try. 

Interview with Domen

I: Hello again, welcome. Do you feel like you’re at home?

D: Yes, but in my second home.

I: So salon is your second home. When you walked past the salon, down is Mini Planica. What was the first thought you had? Are you waiting for winter? For the beginning of new season? Or were you bringing back the memories?

D: I weren’t bringing back the memories, because right now my first concern is school, when I’ll finish school then I’ll think of ski jumping, because you have to have calm head, because then jumps go normally. If there’s something else going on you can’t really think about jumps. So yeah first concern is school and then I’ll continue.

I: Have you ‘jumped’ back to school right after the end of season? You are 3rd year of high school in Kranj’s gymnasium of France Prešeren. Is it already ‘under the roof’?

D: Of course I went back to school imidiatley, what else should I do, but it’s not ‘under the roof’ yet. I have a lot to catch up and a lot to learn. But any knowledge is welcome.

I: What about graduation trip? I heard that it’s going to be really exotic.

D: The trip is going to be the way we are going to make it, how we are going to take it and that’s it.

I: Do you have any plan in the class? I mean are you going to be able to go on the trip?

D: The trip is for those students who make the 3rd class of high school. The fist plan is to pass the 3rd year and than the we’ll do the plan for the trip.

I: How’ s the progress of learning Norwegian? I think that you started that project not so long ago.

D: I started and gave it up soon.

I: Is there any preticular reason?

D: No, it’s easy language and you can learn it quickly, but there were too many things that makes me happy, so I had to put that aside.  

I: Can you say anything easy, maybe how do you say hello in Norwegian?

D: No, because I gave up too soon.

I: Then what are the other things that you give advantage to? Besides ski jumping and school.

D: For now, there are mostly ski jumping and school, so there’s no time for anything else. Maybe there’s time for trip to the nature, so you can calm down like this or hanging out with friends.

I: Of course we can’t go by the last season. After what are do you remember it the most?

D: I don’t know, maybe Lillehammer remained at my heart and of course Vikersund.

I: What about Oberstdorf, before we talk about Vikersund?

D: There was something special of course. I don’t know. For now I have every hill in my memory. How everything went, how I warmed up. I remembered Oberstdorf mostly, because I started a new chapter in my life, when I started ski flying. I expected more from ski flying hill but it still exceeded my wishes.

I: What did you expect from Vikersund? Who knows the record? How far did he fly?… Who’s the most loyal fan?… Say it loud! It’s 243,5 m. How was it in those moments?

D: It was fine. I was happy to achieve something new, happy to achieve a new goal and you set a new limit in your life. I don’t know how a person was supposed to feel.

I: Well, also here your special extreme ski flying was expressed. Tell me how can you put skis behind your ears while you’re flying?  It’s a real attraction.

D: Honestly, even I don’t know, I don’t really even want that, maybe it sounds weird, it’s not on me to have skis so high, because I’m stopping myself by this, it takes a few meters away from me. We’re going to try to fix that and then we will go to the next season.

I: How does a start into new season looks like? How will you try to fix that?

D: Of course, step by step, with jumps, with training. Slowly so that body gets used to new moves, that it wasn’t used to. It goes much easier if it’s all spontaneously.

I: One more question for the fans. Do you know when does Domen has birthday?

FAN: 4th of June!

I: Yes, yes. And that is soon, right? How old is he going to be now? Yes, 18, he’s going to be an adult now. Is anything gonna change?

D: Maybe someone looks on this like now he’s going to be careless, but I think that the person has a lot more worries, because he takes all responsibility.

I: Do you like surprises?

D: It depends on what kind of surprise it is, on one hand I like it, but if they are negative I don’t like them.

I: We made sure that our gift is not negative. The gift is coming in the name of team of Saloni Pohištva Prevc. A bouquet and a special book, you’ll check it out alone….

 Tagging @d0menp and @sophieskijumping because they asked for it :D

I hope it’s unerstandable!

I tend to weave dreams out of words and sounds. Simple hellos become complex conversations as we lay on the grass underneath the sun’s loving gaze. Sentences like ‘I love you’ become kisses underneath a star-streaked sky with the moon smiling down approvingly. Your laugh was no different. It was aquarium visits in springtime. Sunsets over tea. Winter snow and camellias. Movie marathons during thunderstorms. Warm laughter on Sunday mornings. Christmas music in June. Nothing I dreamt about made the cut for reality. Maybe we didn’t try hard enough. Maybe I was too deep inside of my head. Maybe you tried too hard to stay out of yours. I don’t think I’ll ever know. The only thing I’m certain of is the fact that things could’ve been different, but they weren’t. So it goes.
