i want to bring my friends here

anonymous asked:

A scenario where the reader has gotten really close to everyone in Class A-1. Before she could join tho she was part of the Villain's group, she was one of the best and they wanted her back for an assault on the heroes which it came down to an epic showdown between reader&Izuku. She doesn't want to go against him really and Izuku is rage by the betrayal, nobody really saw this aggressive side to him but what he was really trying to do is bring her back, he cares too much to see her this way. ^^

“Izuku I don’t want to fight you!” you yelled as you blocked one of his attacks, “Stop this!” He shook your head, “Sorry (Y/n), but if you’re a villain you’re not leaving here unscathed.” His scowl at you hurt you more than he could ever know. “I trusted you! You were my friend! You betrayed me! And for what? To attack us and end up in jail?!” Izuku yelled as he relentlessly punch and kicked at you. “I was a villain before I knew you, it’s not my fault they wanted me back!” you blocked a punch and jumped away. “Not your fault?! You were the one that went back! You didn’t have to!” he roundhouse kicked at you, kicking you in the side of the ribs and blowing you sideways. “Izuku, I wish I could tell you everything but it’s all way more complicated than that.” you sighed and gripped your ribs as he charged at you again. You dodged easily, used to sparring with him and he let out a low growl, “Fight me (Y/n)!” “I don’t need to Izu.” “Stop calling me that! The (Y/n) that was my friend called me that and you sure aren’t them!” he charged again and nearly caught your cheek with a punch.

You retreated behind a building not to far away so you could catch your breath, “Izuku, I wish I didn’t have to be a villain. I really do.” you sighed to yourself and wiped tears away from your eyes quickly. “But sometimes you see things you aren’t supposed to and you have to do things to keep those you care about safe.” You collected your thoughts and took a deep breath in and out. “(Y/N) WHERE ARE YOU!” Izuku shouted and you charged your quirk still behind your shelter. “I DON’T UNDERSTAND! WHY ARE YOU A TRAITOR?! I thought we were friends.” you heard Izuku come closer and sniff, you really wished he didn’t have to cry. You wished all of this didn’t have to happen. You were stuck with the villains because if you didn’t stay with them they would kill your younger sibling, not because you wanted to. They knew you were strong and they wanted you back and not to be undercover at UA anymore. It wasn’t your fault!

“Found you.” you heard before you were sent into the wall behind you with a knee to the gut. “You always did have a problem of zoning out on the battlefield…” a voice surprised both you and Izuku. Izuku had you pinned to the wall with a hand around your throat and words caught in his own. “Send him away. We’ve done what we came here for.” You nodded at Kurogiri and turned to Izuku, “Deku I’m sorry.” you smiled an apologetic smile at him, “Eject.” “(Y/n) no-” your quirk activated and threw him across the courtyard and away from you. “Come (Y/n), we have more we need to do.” You looked to Kurogiri and then turned to Izuku, “I’m sorry Izuku, I really am. Please understand…” you sighed as you walked through the warp gate and disappeared from Izuku’s sight.

The Game: Part Two

Rucas au multi-fic. Lucas and Riley have been best friends for as long as they can remember. They finally tell each other how they feel, and are able to get together, but some friction occurs when Riley’s Uncle Shawn introduces everyone to his new wife and daughter.

Part One

“Sorry about my dad, please continue.” Riley says, now blushing from embarrassment.

“It’s okay. Um, yeah, like I was saying, I would never want to lose you as a friend, but I need to speak up about this. And if I wasn’t sure about how you were feeling, I wouldn’t be bringing this up at all.”
“You met someone didn’t you?”

“What?”

“I knew it was only a matter of time,” She gets up and starts pacing around her room. “You came here to tell me you started seeing some girl. Alright, who is she? I’ll try to be happy for you, but-”

“Riley! Are you insane? I spend all of my free time with you, how could there be another girl.” He gets up, and stand close to her, face to face.

“I don’t know, I just get in my head sometimes.”

“I think you and I are ready for the next level.”

“Next level? We’re best friends. What’s the level after that? Super best friends?”

“No, I mean, what I’m trying to say is, I want us to be more than friends.”

There, he said it, the thing she had waited so long for him to say. Her eyes started welling up with tears, and she flings herself into his arms.

“Please tell me you’re reacting this way because you want the same thing.”

“I am, I do, I want us to be more than friends too, I have for feels like forever.”  She looks up at him, and smiles. “I just never thought you looked at me that way.”

“Are you kidding? Other than all of the other things that make you amazing, I am incredibly attracted to you physically Riles. You are the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen. And I was not gonna wait any longer so some other guy could steal you away.”

“Nobody ever could.”

Riley feels her pants buzz, and sees it’s a text from her mom. It basically said she had 60 seconds to come to dinner, or Cory would be knocking down the door.

“I better get to dinner. Did you wanna join?”

“No that’s okay. Go have family time. I’ll call you later.”

“Okay.”

“Okay.”

Riley is about to walk over to the door when Lucas grabs her arm, and turn her around. He kisses her, he fully plants one on her. It’s a wet, sloppy kiss that involved a little tongue. Riley jumps back after giving in for a minute.

“Sorry, little carried there.”

“It’s okay. Um, we can do more of that later. Call me later.”

“Right, bye.”

Riley takes a deep breath after he leaves out the window. She internally squeals with happiness. She looks at herself in the mirror to make sure she doesn’t look like she just embraced in a steamy kiss. She walks into the dining area of her kitchen, and joins everyone, who are all halfway through their meals already.

“Sorry about that, didn’t mean to be rude.” She says, digging into her plate.

“So, you two just let cute boys go in and out your daughter’s bedroom?” Maya asks.

“Well, now that Riley and Lucas are older, we’ve asked him to come through the front door, and we thought he was doing a pretty good job of doing that.” Says Topanga.

“He has been, that’s why I was so shocked to see him sitting there.”

“So what’s his deal, what did hottie mc hottie want?”

“Alright, um, I’m gonna have to ask you to stop doing that.”

“Doing what?”

“Expressing your interest in him. He’s taken.” Riley sips on her drink, without breaking eye contact. “You pointed at him, and said ‘who he’, and now you keep using words like cute and hot, and guess what, not so cute of you to do.”

“Riley” Cory says with a tone to indicate that she’s being rude.

“Sorry.”

“Wait, did you say he’s taken?” Asks Topanga, excitedly.

“Mhm. I barely had to say a thing, he told me he wanted to be with me!”

Riley and Topanga make a squealing noise together.

“He’s gonna call me later, since it was so urgent that I come to dinner.”

“Well excuse me for wanting you two to get acquainted.” Says Shawn sarcastically.

“Sorry Uncle Shawn, that conversation was just a little more important than a forced conversation with your step-daughter, who I’ll be more than happy to show around school in a couple of days.”
“But that’s all you’re gonna do. You don’t want to be friends with me, especially not now.” Maya interjects. “Now that I think you’re friend is attractive.”

“We’re more than friends.”

“As of five seconds ago. Anything can change, who knows maybe he’s been waiting his whole life to meet me.”

“There’s plenty of other guys in the school, meet one of them.”

“No, i think I’ll stick with him, I like a challenge.”

Riley stands up in a huff, grabs a jacket from the coat rack, walks out the front door, and slams it behind her. Kitty and Shawn give Maya an annoyed look.

“Relax, I’m not actually going to ruin this for her, I just wanted her to sweat a little.”

“Either way, not nice. Apologize to the Matthews, now.” Says Kitty.

“Sorry.”

“We’re not the ones you need to apologize to.” Cory says.

random college tips

i. get to your classroom early if you don’t have a class beforehand

not only are you guaranteed the best seat in the house, but there’s something about being in a classroom or lecture hall that makes you feel productive and focused. bring a book or writing assignment for a different class with you and just Do It

ii. pack your bag the night before

especially if you have early morning classes and are not a morning person. this will help you have a less stressful morning and will help you make sure you have everything you need for the day prior to leaving your dorm

iii. don’t overannotate

annotations are designed to help you identify the most important parts of the book/novel, meaning important themes, character development, big events, the implications of said events, etc. by over highlighting and over annotating i can guarantee you you aren’t doing yourself a favor !!! i’m gonna make a post later about how i annotate so be on the lookout

iv. stay on top of your readings

seriously. it is a pain in the ass trying to catch up on a week’s worth of reading in five different classes. it is stressful, it’s time consuming, and it’s exhausting. even if you’ve had a long day and you’re not in the mood to read an entire 20 page chapter in your american government textbook, just do it !!! your brain and your mental health will thank you the next day

v. try your hardest not to miss class

i’m mentally ill and prone to sickness, so i understand that sometimes it’s hard. it also feels worse when you miss class and have no idea what’s happening, so if you think you can get out of bed, lets get to class so we don’t fall behind and get extra stress thrown on top of us!

vi. fridays are homework days

think of it this way: if fridays are homework days, saturday and sunday are free days !!!!

vii. proofread your papers before you turn them in

guys i literally never do this (i know i’m a bad egg) and im always suffering for it. if your college/university has a writing center/something similar please go there, especially your freshman year !!! they will help you learn how to accurately and succinctly convey your thoughts on a college level and you will be so grateful later on i hate myself

viii. ask if the professor prefers a certain citation style

if you dont get a chance to ask during the class/lecture, send them an email. i once got my grade halved because i didnt use APA when the professor didnt specify on the syllabus/assignment sheet. so do urself and ur gpa a favor and ask

ix. always bring extra pens/pencils to class with you

somebody will forget theirs and they will sit next to you and if ur in a class with 30+ ppl that has group projects or presentations coming up you’re going to want friends

x. college kids love gum

if u bring gum you got all the friends in the world my guy i dont know why this is a thing but it is. one girl cried during exam week last year because i gave her a piece of my gum and that was literally the highlight of her week

ok thats my random ass list of stuff regarding college !! i’ll probably make more masterposts like this b/c this was fun as heck. if u have any questions/need advice, just hmu !! you can check out my other masterposts here.

The Ballad of Steve the Barbarian

We had a new player once. He decided “Hey cool, barbarians sound awesome. I want to be a barbarian trapper. I shall regale you with his antics :

1. Upon entering a dense forest in search of some Kobolds who were preparing to attack a nearby town, Steve rolls perception and spies a deer. He’s bringing up the rear and veers away from the party. We find him later, playing checkers with a band of Pixies in a clearing. Apparently he had rolled a Nat 20 for animal handling and the deer led him here. The deer is nearby just watching. Everyone in the circle turns to look at the party.

Steve : Oh hey guys. These are my friends.

The rest of the party : *Bewildered stare*

Steve : We can’t really talk to each other. But I’ve named them. This little guy is Peter. That one is Vicky. And that little bugger over there is Steve Jr. I’ve always wanted a Steve Jr.

Tiefling rogue : Uh… Steve… We have a mission.

Steve : Oh! Right! *looks at the pixies* Bye guys! We’ll catch up later.

Dwarf Cleric : You sure you’re not a druid?

2. Steve was with the party in a goblin cave. He’s a bit ahead scouting as a meatshield/warning bell. After a few moments we no longer hear him moving ahead of us. We stop, the rogue stealths ahead to find Steve in a side store room sitting at a table with a few goblins. They’re playing some form of poker on a rickety table of explosive powder. Steve is smoking a pipe we’ve never seen before. The rogue brings the party up.

Steve : (in goblin) Oh don’t mind them. Those are my friends. (To the party) Hey guys! Check it out. These dudes are super cool!

The goblins smile and wave.

Tiefling Rogue : Steve… We need to have a chat.

Steve : Sure. What’s up?

Tiefling Rogue : Okay first of all, We think you have a wandering problem. And a gaming problem. Where the hell did you get that pipe? And you -DO- realize we’ve been paid to kill these goblins right?

Steve : Aww… But these dudes are super cool! See? We’re playing poker.

Rogue : Steve. We have to kill them.

Steve : Shame… *turns to the goblins while unlimbering his great axe, aptly named The Axe of Steve* Look fellas. I’m really sorry about this.

3. After arriving at a local farming community and meeting some locals, Steve wanders off to set some traps to check in the morning. The farmers have agreed to purchase anything he catches. It’s been a rough harvest season. The next morning he goes to check the traps. Alone. And finds an owl bear.

Steve : Oh man. Check you out! What a magnificent beautiful bastard you are! (ooc) I’d like to roll animal handling to see if we can be friends. *rolls a Nat 1*

There is a cairn stone in the clearing where we found him with the Pixies. Steve died that day. The owl bear proved to be too much for his gentle nature.

okay so i know you already dislike sharon needles, but i have seen people bringing her up and i wanted to just ask you if you could post about some bad stuff shes done, so i have a reference, thank you so much!!!

firstly, here sharon is black facing:

next we have sharon sporting the confederate flag and a swastika shirt:

she has also said the N-word on stage countless times and wrote the N-word when signing a fans poster:

sharons tried to defend himself using the N word and literally said this, and this is a direct fucking quote no joke:

The other night me and a couple of my friends went out to have a good time, and there’s this young thing. I call her a “thing” because, you know, I don’t know how to tip-toe around gender rules or queer politics. I’m 30 years old, rich, and famous; I don’t have to deal with that shit anymore, you know what I mean? So we’ll just call them “him”/“her”/“thing,” whatever. And you know she really finds my shows offensive. … So anyway she got upset that I paint myself brown, that I would use language that she found offensive. … She made me an unnecessary poster child for post-racial change.“

here is my source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brandon-thomas/sharon-needles-racist-aft_b_1473057.html?ir=Australia

also Aaron, (sharon) a cis man dressed up as caitlyn jenner. which is a form of mocking trans womens bodies. because if a man dresses up as a trans woman it encourages the idea that trans women are just “men dressing up as women” which they AREN’T. trans women ARE women:

stories from fans who’ve had bad encounters with sharon that i found on reddit:

story 1

story 2

hope this is a good reference for you!

or… harry regrets breaking y/n’s heart

category: angst

I miss you.

His mouth is dry as he stares down at his phone, thumb hovering over the arrow that’ll send the text he’s longing to mail. With another deep breath, he studies the message over again, then begins to question himself. Should I write more? She deserves an apology. Maybe the word crave instead of miss. Yearn for? He deletes the text but retypes it in the same moment.

He’s never felt guilt this deeply before, he’s never so desperately wanted to turn back time and change everything– rephrase all of his words differently. Do things differently. The thought of him not being able to go back and change things hits him like a ton of bricks, sending his short nails into the palm of his hand.

A clap on his shoulder wakes him from his thoughts, and he looks up with attentive eyes. “Ready to go?” Jeff laughs, tucking his heel into the back of his shoe. “Reservations don’t hold themselves.”

“No, yeah.” he rushes, tucking the locked phone into the back pocket of his jeans. “Let’s go.”

“It’s my fucking job, y’know that, we’ve been through this a million times before. Get over it, angel.”

She scoffs in disbelief, untying the silk scarf from around her neck. “Get over it? Get over it. Over my boyfriend of nearly a year not telling anyone about our relationship—?“

“The media would go insane I- fuck I told y’this—”

“I’m not asking you to tell the world, Harry! Maybe your mom, your sister? My family? I’ve been lying to them for way too long, keeping an enormous part of my life away from them how’s that supposed to make me feel? Do you know how distressing it is to be introduced as a friend to you? To not tell anyone, not even my best friend how much you mean to me?”

“Y’do know it’s like that for me as well? A relationship is consists of two people—”

“Not that I’d know.”

The words were out of his lips the moment the door had shut behind Peter. They were sharp, and his tongue stressed the curse word, caressing it in a way that drew your attention to his anger. It was obvious in his tone, in the tension of his jaw…

But his eyes told a whole different story. The blue in them, normally sparkling like seawater inspiring you to dive in, looked so dull. They had a panicked look to them now, but they also looked emotionally exhausted, as if behind his eyes, deep down in the core of his being, he didn’t have much left to give. He looked so tired, and the dark circles under his eyes proved him to be.

His shoulders were slumped forward, and he looked as if he were about to fall at any second. But as your eyes traveled toward his hands, you felt guilty, because they were trembling by his sides.

You knew he must have seen you notice because in the next second, his hands were balled into fists to stop the shaking and he was looking away from you.

justlookingnottouching  asked:

hi emily, i have recently been re-sorted into slytherin (former ravenclaw) and i feel a little out of my depth in this house... do you have any advice for slytherin noobs on how to adapt to their new house? how do you make friends here? can i bring my dogs? is pink allowed in the dorms? do they have enough blankets?

Welcome to the dungeon! Have a mouldy chair.

My advice for a Ravenclaw transitioning to Slytherin, a Slytherclaw if you will, would be to keep hold of your Ravenclaw instincts to be discerning and resourceful. However you’re going to want to let go of a lottttttt of that logic, for reasons of AESTHETICS.

Dungeons, snakes, creepy dead things floating in jars, sneaky Snapey types skulking around in the dark - all part of the Slytherin brand. If you’re into it, great. If not - you’re going to want to keep schtum about a lot of the Sltyerhin weirdness and just accept that the aesthetic comes first.

  • To make friends, I would suggest bragging about some crazed ancient dark wizard to whom you are distantly related, or just invent some clever rhyme about how shit Harry Potter is.
  • You cannot bring dogs, dogs are too happy. ‘Happy’ is not the Slytherin aesthetic. Reptiles yes, or a cat, but only if said cat is particularly contemptuous.
  • NO. PINK.**
  • Yes they have blankets.

Hope this helps! To be explored further in the upcoming comics, dw xx

**Edit: A reminder that this is just an advice blog, and therefore subjective, but I just get the feeling pink and Slytherin don’t mix well (see - Dolores Umbridge)

anonymous asked:

Hello, I'm the anon who's freaking out about being thrown into adulthood, and thank you for your previous help. 1.) How do I mamage/budget a minimum wage salary? 2.) I've never been great with any sort of organization, but would you mind teaching me about home organization and important paper organization?

Okay, so this post will be about budgeting on minimum wage, and later in the day I will also post about paper organization. Enjoy!

Budgeting on Minimum Wage

Overview

The average minimum wage in the US is $7.25/hr. Even working full time at 40 hours a week, that’s only a profit of $290 before taxes. This is not a fair living wage! You are worth way more than this amount! I strongly encourage you to start looking for another job that pays better, look for something around the $10-$15 range. 

While $7.25 is atrocious, thousands of people around the world support families on much less. If they can do it while supporting children, so can you! To live off a minimum wage budget you need to declare yourself independent. If your parents are still claiming you as a dependent YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS. I also recommend that you have the highest amount possible taken out of your taxes so that you get money back from your state at the end of the year, instead of being in debt to them.

What I’ve done is come up with a budgeting plan based off some made up factors and my own personal experience.

Housing

1. City life. Forget about the city! Apartments located in cities can be three times as expensive as apartments in small towns or villages. On top of the extra expense, they’re much smaller and have less amenities included. I’d much rather live in a one bedroom apartment with a dishwasher and a conveniently located Laundromat, than a literal closet with no windows on a fifth floor walkup. Look for apartments twenty minutes to a half hour outside of your closest city. Now you have the close conveniences of a city, with none of those pesky city prices that your budget can’t handle.

2. College towns. Shop around and look at apartments by local colleges. Large colleges with have apartment complexes within walking distance of the school grounds. Landlords know that college students have less money (you might even be a college student yourself) and adjust their prices accordingly. Even apartments next to ivy league schools are priced this way, so don’t be discouraged by the institution’s “prestige”.

3. Locale. Your safety is more important than your bank account. It doesn’t matter if you live in Section 8 housing or in an affluent suburb. Some apartment complexes and neighborhoods are just safer than others. I live in a heavily populated and upper middle class suburb, and the first year I moved in, a drunk woman tried to throw a beer bottle at my car. Thankfully this is the only time this happened to me, but it made me feel unsafe in my environment. Before signing a lease, walk or drive around your prospective home’s neighborhood at night. Take in the atmosphere, and make sure it’s one where you could comfortably run to the local supermarket at 10:30pm and pick up toilet paper.

4. Roommates. Living on minimum wage requires that you find one or two roommates to help split the rent. The more the better! Get together with your more responsible friends, so at least you’re living with people whose company you enjoy. There are lots of “roommate wanted” forums and message boards for you to browse on the internet, but always bring a responsible adult with you before meeting a stranger. Please. Bring your mom if you have too.

Food

1. Low-spoon food. I created this post a few months ago which offers lots of suggestions about cooking and shopping on a budget.

2. Online recipes. Here are some of my favorite online Tumblr cookbook resources. 

3. I also regularly update my cooking on a budget tag. 

Misc Expenses

1. Gas. Shop around and find the cheapest gas in your area. Avoid gas stations next to colleges, highways, and in touristy areas. Look into getting as gas rewards card from your favorite supermarket. I get 10 cents off a gallon with Stop & Shop every time I do a big shop. 

2. Dollar store. Get to know your local dollar and bargain stores. You can buy everything from pots and pans to bed sheets there. These stores often sell bulk ramen for $1 and large cans of crushed tomatoes for 75 cents. That’s enough food for you to live off of for several days. When shopping, I make three grocery store stops to ensure that I spend the least amount possible on my pantry needs. I go Dollar Store, Stop and Shop, and then to my local organic grocery store. I’m going to make a list of things that I buy at Dollar Stores and things that I don’t buy at Dollar Stores soon!

3. Cable. We are living in the digital age- you don’t need cable television. Use Netflix or Hulu or whatever. It will save you tons of $$. 

4. Internet. As far as internet speed goes, if you’re living with roommates you will probably need a higher speed. Living by yourself, choose a lower one. Most internet companies offer large discounts to new subscribers. These typically only last a year, but will save you serious money. Make sure to take note of when this discount expires, and contact the company before it does. If you don’t, they’ll begin charging you the full amount without notice.

5. Verizon. I just want to take a moment to talk about how much I love Verizon because they have literally saved me so much money in the three years I’ve been with them. After you sign a contract with a new internet company, they charge you a bunch of ridiculous fees like “activation fees” and “installation fees”. I called Verizon and was like “I’m a poor college student, I can’t afford this” and they were like “don’t worry, we’ll waive the fee”. I signed a two year contract with them that saved me $80 on a high-speed internet bill per month (my price being only 50.99 a month). After the contract expired I call them and they put me on a month to month, keeping the price absolutely the same. TLDR- get Verizon if you can.

6. Utility. Get on a monthly budget with whatever utility company services your new apartment. Although it may seem like the cheaper option, paying the actual amount of electricity you spend per month is the more expensive. It’s also unpredictable, and a minimum wage budget won’t allow for it. See this for more info.

7. Amazon. I buy a lot of my beauty, cleaning, and cat products online. Amazon offers Prime shipping free for a year with a student email address, and then offers it at a greatly reduced price after the year. If you are a student, snap up that free deal ASAP. If it’s in your budget, I’d greatly recommend investing in Amazon Prime.

8. Saving money. It’s so important to attempt to break way from the “paycheck to paycheck” vicious cycle. Living this way does not allow for emergency expense money, and trust me, sometime soon you will need emergency expense money. Your cat might get sick or your car may die, whatever it is, it’s always smart to have at least $500 squirreled away. I’m gonna level with you, things have been tight for my budget and I haven’t been able to save anything for the past three months. But this month I will!

Example Budgets

Full Time

Working with the $7.25/hr and 40hr/week model, here’s an example budget for living on minimum wage. That’s $1,160 a month without taxes.

Housing: Let’s say you’re sharing an apartment with two close friends, the rent being $1,500 without any amenities. That rent split three ways is $500 each.

Gas I commute twenty minutes every day, and I drop about $20-$25 a week on gas. That’s $100 on gas a month.

Food: I do one big shopping a month with my boyfriend. We drop around $180 and that’s including toiletries and soap and stuff. So maybe you’ll spend about $100 a month on all your shopping needs.

Cable/internet:  Hopefully you took my advice and skipped cable. Let’s say you’re paying around $50 per month for internet. Split three ways that’s $17 each.

Laundry: Hopefully you’re not like me and are only spending around $20 on laundry per month.

Random expenses: Because there always are some. Let’s just tack on another $100.

With everything added up, you still have around $290 left before taxes! That money can go into a savings account, and after several months, you’ll have that $500 worth of emergency money saved.

Part Time

Working with the $7.25/hr and 25hr/week model, here’s an example budget for living on minimum wage. That’s $725 without taxes.

Housing: In this case, you need to look for apartments in the $800-900 range. In my area, one bedroom apartments go for around $1000, so you may need to get creative with your roommate (I don’t think you could have more than one roommate in this situation). Buy dividers to split the bedroom or studio in half! Let’s say your rent is $850 with nothing included, that’s $425 each.

Gas You’re still looking at a large gas bill per month, so it may be more inexpensive to ride a bike or use public transportation. Let’s say you use public transportation, and spend around $50 a month on that. Or maybe you and your roommate can split gas expenses and share a car?

Food: Pinch those pennies! Use some of those budget cookbooks I linked above to help you cook healthy and delicious meals for under $4 each. See if you can only spend $80 a month on groceries.

Cable/internet:  Hopefully you took my advice and skipped cable. Let’s say you’re paying around $50 per month for internet. Split two ways is $25 each.

Laundry: Hopefully you’re not like me and are only spending around $20 on laundry per month.

Random expenses: Because there always are some. Let’s just tack on another $100.

That leaves you $25 to put in your bank account, if that. This is a paycheck to paycheck situation, and you will probably need to get another source of income to feel secure. But you can still do it!

DannyMay Day Twenty Five: Aliens/ Cryptids

…It still baffles him. He knows that the portals are unpredictable. Imagine his surprise when it took him half way across the country, thankfully in his own time. He recognizes this city, and a childish sort of giddiness overtakes him.

Danny Phantom emerges inside the Titans Tower.
