i was going to do more but i have lots of stuff i need to be working on

More Damian as a college student: My college had an orientation weekend for all the freshmen, which is pretty common as far as I’m aware, but it pretty much felt like summer camp for 400 some freshmen with like 100 upperclassmen running things and I just couldn’t help thinking of what Damian would have done and ended up writing this drabble.

“Hi everyone, I’m Hannah your O-group leader and I’d like to welcome you all to your first semester! So what we’re going to do is some get to know you games. First though how about we just go around the circle and say our name, where we’re from, and one fun fact about ourselves. So my name’s Hannah, I’m from Coast City and I spent the summer working as an intern at Ferris Air.”

This continues to go around the circle and Damian learns his classmates play an array of sports and instruments, won various awards, and come from all over the country. By the time it gets to be his turn he has no suitable fun fact that wouldn’t compromise his identity.

“Hello. My name is Damian Wayne, I am from Gotham City and I-” am Robin, was trained to be an assassin since birth, have died and come back, count metas and a kryptonian as my best friends, I’ve led the teen titans, have been to space multiple times… “have a small wildlife preserve at my house. It includes a cow, some horses, dogs, cats, a turkey, and some more exotic animals.”

The introductions conclude and they move onto the next game, something called the Great Wind Blows. The whole circle stands and one person enters the middle, they say something about themselves and whoever else that applies to must run to another spot in the circle, the last one still moving ends up in the middle next. -tt- This is ridiculous. What could any of these people possibly have in common with myself. The first person is a girl who introduces herself as Joan and then she recites her fact as per the rules, “The great wind blows if you… have an adopted sibling!” Damian moves into the center of the circle, slightly in shock. Joan takes his spot and no one else has moved.

“You both have an adopted sibling?” Hannah asks kindly, trying to encourage them to share.

“My little sister, her name’s Emma. My parents adopted her when she was still a baby and I was four but I love her to pieces.”

“Damian?” Hannah prompts.

Damian gulps and stares at his classmates, “I have four adopted siblings actually, three older brothers and an older sister. Um, Richard, Jason, Timothy, and Cassandra.” Hannah smiles and nods at him and he realizes this is his cue to continue the game. “I’m Damian and the great wind blows if…” you are a black belt in at least one martial art, know how to fence, speak more than three languages fluently, regularly travel across the country… “you spend your summer on a farm or at summer camp.”

Quite a few other teens shuffle around and whoever moved must once again explain how it applies to them. A lot work as summer camp counselors but two others explain they spend summers on their grandparent’s farm or uncle’s vineyard. “A family friend is from Smallville, Kansas and his parents’ have myself, their grandson and a few other friends come stay for parts of the summer on their farm.”

Damian is surprised to find himself moving around the circle to things like “have a dog”, “have a black belt”, “rides horses”, “watch Disney movie marathons with friends”, “have inside jokes with your siblings”, “regularly prank another member of your family”, “one or more of your best friends live in another state”.

What was the most surprising was “have met a superhero”, since Hannah thought this was interesting and practically everyone moved she had them all go around and say which hero, herself having run into different Green Lanterns during her life in Coast City. A lot were “Superman” or “the Flash” two excitedly said they had both met Wonder Woman and Black Canary which prompted a side conversation that needed to be reeled back in.

It got around to Damian who grimaced, scrunched his eyes shut, and began listing as fast as he could, “Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Oracle, Red Hood, Black Bat, Batgirl, Red Robin, Abuse, Superman, both Superboys, the Flash, Kid Flash, Impulse, Arsenal, Green Arrow, Speedy, Black Canary, Catwoman, Huntress, Wonder Woman, Troia, Wonder Girl, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Miss Martian, Blue Beetle, Supergirl, Stargirl, Doctor Midnight, Wildcat, Mister Terrific, Ravager, Tempest, Aquaman, Doctor Fate, Raven, Beast Boy, Starfire, Cyborg and I’m positive there’s some I’m missing…” He opened his eyes to see the rest of the group staring at him in shock, mouths slack. He tried reclaiming an air of nonchalance, “My father funds Batman Inc. Over the years I have met some rather interesting people thanks to that.”

Another boy gave a low whistle, “Dude. You have got to tell me what it’s like meeting Batman.” Damian just smirked as they moved on.

Hey guys! So I took my cat to the vet today, and it turned out she has gingivitis and signs of infection, which can cause a lot of complications. She’s doing okay but she’ll need dental work, which can get pricy!

It’s not unreasonable (about $550) but unfortunately I’m also moving in a month and a half, and it’s going to be hard to afford with a minimum wage gig.

SO commissions!! In addition to the stuff you see above, I’m fine with any combination of sketch/ink and no color/flat color/full color. More art examples can be found on this blog. I also sell stickers on my redbubble (and you can also commission me to make you a sticker!)

If you want anything else, such as pixels or short comics or what have you, just ask me and I’ll give you an estimate!

I’m fine with shipping, anthro, some nsfw, OCs - just ask if you’re not sure I’ll do it. 

Please email me at kitp.scs@gmail.com if you’re interested. Reblogs and signal boosts are greatly appreciated!!

The stuff I bought for myself and asked people to help me buy in the name of Christmas presents have arrived 8D Now I have a lot of reading to do, and thanks to overtime at work every single day I may have less time to go online ;v;

Thanks to Dazai and BSD I learnt how much money I can spend on a single character and I need to control my number of favourite characters more XD

At least I support the originals and actual manga books are much better than reading online~

Weekly Voltron Fic Recs #16

I’m going to my grandparents’ for Christmas weekend so I wanted to get this done first. I know, it hasn’t been a week. But there are still a LOT of fics. This fandom is prolific, you guys.

Rules: You can find past rec lists here. This is stuff I like, and I have a huge bias toward Lance, hurt/comfort, and general fluff, in that order. Gen unless otherwise noted. Please comment on the fics if you read and enjoy them! 

A Gift Horse by To Be or Not to- Oh forget it (Mikki)
Words: 17,801
Author’s Summary: The paladins of Voltron are the universe’s only hope, and they are ready to fight against the Galra. The only problem is, they’re one short. After stumbling their way through freeing a planet however, they might just find the solution to their problem in the form of a ‘gift of gratitude’. No one is happy about it.
My Comments: Tagged as slight Klance, but reads gen. Warning for abuse, including implied sexual abuse, and slavery. So yeah. Team Voltron is “given” a Keith who has been raised as a Galra and enslaved for years. And then they proceed to absolutely bungle their handling of him. But I really liked Lance doing his best to get to know Keith as a person rather than a problem to be solved, and I find the concept really interesting. This is one of those fics where I want to write the sequel, because a LOT of work is going to need to be done to get these characters anywhere near healed after something like this.

700 Spicolion Movements Under the Sun by alexygalexy
Words: 5,339
Author’s Summary: Surprise birthday party for Coran! It’s a disaster made with love.
My Comments: I LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH. Everyone tried so hard. And it worked out. Mostly. Group hug at the end!

From Kids to Cats by tolkienbs
Words: 1,459
Author’s Summary: The paladins have turned into cats. Allura is at the end of her rope, yet again.
My Comments: The cutest crack. This fandom needs to write more animal transformation fics.

Home by kencat
Words: 1,138
Author’s Summary: Lance just misses home.
My Comments: BEAUTIFUL Hunk and Lance interaction. I love them both so much.

Trial by Ordeal by To Be or Not to- Oh forget it (Mikki)
Words: 89,187
Author’s Summary: They’re supposed to be two sides of the same coin, or something like that. The truth is a bit more complicated. (Character study of Keith and Lance)
My Comments: This is long, but absolutely worth the effort. Warning for depictions of abuse in both parts, but it’s treated realistically and respectfully. There were parts in Keith’s chapter that I had to stop reading for a while and do something else, and pretty much everything in Lance’s chapter made me ache for him and the family he left behind. But it’s really, really good. Amazingly well-written and deep and lifelike, and it all makes so much sense, for both of these characters. I’ll be thinking about this one for a long, long time.

Where Does That Go? by alexygalexy
Words: 2,355
Author’s Summary: Alfor decides its time for Allura to meet his lion.
My Comments: SO CUTE. Tiny Allura is absolutely adorable, if a bit of a brat. Just a feel-good fic.

The Ballad of Green and Blue by uncaringrose
Words: 4,186
Author’s Summary: Pidge never considered Lance to be a prime choice for a friend. But, maybe, he’s not so bad. They have more in common than she thought, and he’s not as annoying as she thought. Her brother may be missing, but she may have found another one to help with the heart ache. * Or: Lance and Pidge spar and realize they enjoy each others’ company more than they first did. Snippets of their growing friendship.
My Comments: Background Klance and Shallura, but the focus is on Pidge and Lance and their seemingly unlikely friendship. I LOVE it. I really want them to have this kind of relationship in the show.

Serendipity by DarkScales
Words: 3,157
Author’s Summary: The ironic thing was, they hadn’t even been looking for them when they found them. (AKA, that future fic where Pidge finds Sam and Matt Holt, completely by accident. And the two are already in the middle of freeing themselves and the rest of the prisoners with them, because the Holt family is awesome.)
My Comments: Aw, a Holt reunion fic! It’s fantastic. I want this so much.

Pidgey-back Ride by darkinsanity13
Words: 2,378
Author’s Summary: It really wasn’t all that odd to find Pidge sleeping in weird places, often draped over her latest tech project or with one sitting nearby. That’s why one day when Keith wandered into the Red Lion’s hanger to see Pidge laying over one of the consoles, clothes and hair rumpled and softly snoring, he wasn’t terribly surprised at the sight.
My Comments: Keith and Pidge sibling-type relationship is also good! Very cute fic.

Space Dad of the Year by sonofthestars
Words: 2,374
Author’s Summary: If there is one thing stable in the paladins’ lives it would be Shiro’s support. AKA Shiro comforts the other paladins when they are sad.
My Comments: What it says on the tin. The beautiful, lovely, comforting tin.

Your Sister Calls Me Daddy by nerdiekatie
Words: 618
Author’s Summary: Part of my Voltron Drabble series, which you can also find on my tumblr. “'Fuck!’ he says hurriedly. 'Fuck,’ he groans again, hiding his face in his hands. 'I didn’t mean it like that. I meant she calls me dad, they all call me dad.’”

Robo Mouse by earthstar
Words: 1,263
Author’s Summary: It wa a robot mouse. It was blue and white, stood up to Hunk’s knee, had tiny little doors for some tiny furry pilots, and the little helicopter blades on it’s back indicated it could also fly. Hunk could not find the words.
My Comments: I LOVE taking weird stuff from Go Lion and forcing it into Voltron: Legendary Defender. Fun little fic.

Alpinia Purpurata and the Sea by monsieurerwin
Words: 1,065
Author’s Summary: The number one thing Hunk misses from home is the ocean. Also flowers.
My Comments: Aw, Hunk-centric fic! Yes good.

a hunk of burning love by smokesque
Words: 1,277
Author’s Summary: pidge has always found company in the silence between words that were never really sincere. for the first time, they find it in the voices of other people. or; that one time hunk and lance thought it would be a good idea to sing elvis presley at four am (and pidge’s prayers were answered).
My Comments: Pre-series Garrison Trio! They’re so TINY and ADORABLE.

oh rainy day, come around by raytalities
Words: 1,516
Author’s Summary: Apparently the cryo-pods can’t cure the common cold. For a change, Shiro finds himself on the receiving end of being looked after.
My Comments: This fic hits the spot. Like chicken soup.

The Space Between Grief And Trust by borrowedphrases
Words: 3,736
Author’s Summary: During a restless night, Keith shares memories with Red.
My Comments: This is wonderful, and so well-written. I adore fics where the paladins bond with their lions, and this is a very cool one. My heart ached for both of them.

It’s My Party (I’ll Cry If I Want To) by nerdiekatie
Words: 2,297
Author’s Summary: Time passes, even in space. Missed birthdays are celebrated, even if they bring up issues. Allura realizes exactly how old our paladins are. Lance jolts up and looks at Hunk. 'Dude, we missed your birthday!’ Hunk jabs his finger at Pidge’s laptop. 'Yours is tomorrow!’ Shiro smiles. 'Congratulations, boys. You should celebrate.’
My Comments: Bittersweet, in the best way. This was equal parts cute and sad, very much like the show can be. I loved it.

First of all!

Long live the DL translators! All of them:

Akui Chansera, Blue (SakamakiHouse), Scurumi, Francette (epithetologist), Rox/Rex (the-precious-sugar-chan). (I haven’t named all all of them, because I don’t know all of them :( But this is about ALL DL translators anyway ).

Respect toward them is very important! Let’s remeber that they are fans aw well, but they help other fans with their hard work. Translating is not that easy and I bet there’s a lot of people here who does not speak Japanese, so… really guys! Respect translators! Without them we wouldn’t be able to learn about the story that much!

Recently, Iwitnessed haters going on anon asks and push  translatora to do more and more translations. But we need to remember that they have their personal life! They have lots of other different stuff to do and people who think that they should only translate should think again.

Just imagine, that you are a translator and people send you so many requests and finally you don’t know what to do fisrt and still have you own life (school, work, personal problems). Asks pill up and you lose your patience. It starts to be depressing, but you’re still nice and polite to other fans and try to please them… Now if you put yourself in translators shoes than you should know it’s a hard work (plus it’s 100 Times worse than you imagined since imagination is not reality and people won’t still fully understand traslators until they become one of them).



They don’t take our money or anything. They do it for the whole fandom and sometimes people won’t even notice, like “Oh, there’s a translations *reads* *leaves tumblr* ” and should be like “OH! MY! GOD! Somebody is finally tanslating!! I looove this person, let me see her/his blog! *becomes a stalker (a nice and harmless stalker xD) * ”

Next time if you say that TRANSLATOR’S are REPLACEABLE or should ONLY TRANSLATE WHAT YOU WANT then please leave this fandom…. or just at least stay quiet!

One more thing about DL fandom (not ranslators related):

There’s a lot of hate and disrespect!

What we want to stay in is a fandom welcome to everybody but some people would rather send hate toward the others. This is wrong. We’re all in DiaHell and what we need is respect other fans. I’m not telling people to start love each others if they purely dislike, but all I’m asking is respect.

I always try my best to stay aside and be quiet but now I really need to write it. This note is not a hate note toward other fangirls. Not at all !!!! I love you all because we are in DL fandom together. But we should sometimes think before acting. I belive that we can make this fanodm a better place. It’s sad that so many nice and polite people leaves it and rude people would stay and keep on sending hate.

Please respect the other fans (and translators among them/us)!

Love, Milky (☆´3`)

So! Quick notice that I might move back to semi-regular posting, since I feel my current “I’ll do it whenever” method turns into “I’ll do it never.” I made a few touch-ups to the battle system, because really, I’m still trying to figure out how to approach that aspect of the game. 

So there’s that! You might also noticed that the protagonist’s portrait is a bit different - I changed the design a little, but it’s basically just a color swap:

 I felt like the original color scheme was too light and needed more contrast, so here’s that change. I might also get a multiple parallax script or something going because I am not too happy with that background :\

Anyways, I’ll keep you guys posted! 

anonymous asked:

Hi hi! So I have an AP Exam that I have to start studying for. I have two concerns: remembering all that information and time. Any advice?

Hi, thanks for asking! Well there’s a lot to say about studying for any exam. I’m likely going to write another post about studying for exams in more detail, but that’s planned for the far future at this point. Since you need the info now, I’ll just do dot points as there are a lot of facets to cover.


  • For general tips on Studying and Exams
  • Work out how much time you have left - schedule your study sessions. 
    • Make a schedule. Study hard stuff first. 
    • Discipline, stick to schedule. 
    • Take breaks. 
    • Don’t forget to eat or any other health related thing - health first!
  • Try and have enough to go over the content twice - once thoroughly, and the second time briefly 1-2 days before the exam. 
  • Work out what type of exam and study accordingly
    • essay (pick topics and practice essay questions) or 
    • MCQ (broad area of subjects tested, can be quite specific, so pay attention to important details, e.g. for diseases, focus on clinically relevant points before focusing on aetiology/pathophysiology)
    • short answer similar to MCQ
  • Work out what you don’t understand (concept wise), email prof/ask friends/read textbook and sort that out before anything else. 
  • Study in blocks of around 3-4 hours before switching subjects, with short 10 minute breaks every hour - enough for you to get stuck into it, but without burning you out. 
    • Everyone is different, so feel free to adjust to your liking. 
    • No distractions. Work in quiet/cafe-volume place, or classical music only when memorising. 
  • Studying itself - TEST YOURSELF
    • Highlight, read aloud or type - whatever works for you. 
    • Blank paper method - just jot down everything you know, before and after studying - helps to track your progress too. 
    • Understand the concepts, don’t just memorise unless unavoidable. 
      • Explain concepts to plastic duck or dog. 
    • That being said, you still need to memorise lots, so use flashcards if possible. 
    • Use mnemonics if possible, but some subjects there are too many mnemonics to memorise e.g. side effects of medication - in this situation, understand the pharmacology and you should be able to eke out the conditions. 
      • Use a story to remember mnemonics. 
    • Use a flowchart of trigger words for essay type exams
      • Why? Because if you memorise a section, you may sometimes need a prompt to regurgitate that info. Ergo, if promptless, you may forget whole sections. 
      • Have a trigger word for each section, and test yourself - write just the triggers on a blank page, and regurgitate sections. 
      • Then memorise the trigger words in a series of flowcharts. 
      • Use a story to remember flowchart/trigger words. 
    • Write trigger words or any other keywords on a “cheat sheet” or “index card”. 
  • Exam itself
    • Get a good night’s rest
    • Drink water, eat breakfast
    • Pack everything the night before
    • Make sure calculator is approved
    • Toilet before exam
    • Don’t get nervous, don’t stand around nervous people
    • Breathe, try not to care about exam (helps with performance anxiety)
    • Easy questions to hard questions
    • Move on if you get stuck
    • Read carefully
    • MCQ - avoid choosing “always” or “never” if you have no idea
    • Plan before answering essay questions
    • Don’t leave early
    • Keep checking answers until the end
    • Check answers by rereading question - sometimes you miss words

This turned out so long despite just being dot points wow. I’m sure this will help :)

gladysgoldfein  asked:

What area of law do you want to specialize in?

To be completely honest I have no idea. I’m still kind of in a like “the dog that caught the mail truck” sort of mindset about law school. It’s been a goal for years and years, so now that I finally actually made it happen it’s hard to put myself on a new path.

Also I think I kind of need to learn more about the law before I really figure out what I want to do and how to get there. As someone who knows very little about what pathways lead from law school to other more specialized fields my plans are all pretty vague right now.

One part of me wants to go into Corporate Law and Securities Regulation, hopefully sell my soul for a lot of money for a few years and still be convicted enough to ditch the big paycheck and use the experienced I gained to regulate corporate law stuff.

Another part of me thinks working in a state capital or district attorneys office might have more impact on more peoples day to day lives, so that sounds up my alley. Another part of me thinks immigration law might be worth pursuing given the current political climate. Another part of me thinks environmental law because of the same reason. Civil rights/constitutional law, again, same reason.

Honestly the big paycheck/potential to be an insider in an industry I’m kind of hostile to, that is attached to my first career path idea has really motivated me a lot to get to this point, but now that I’m here and kind of getting ready to make a huge financial/life decision, I’m less sure that would be a fulfilling career path.

Honestly, this rambling post is basically where I’m at. I have some vague ideas, but it’s still REALLY REALLY up in the air.

Byebye cuties <3

Helluw lovelies, I hope you’re all doing great!!! :3

I just wanted to let you all know that I won’t be very active… Like not at all, and I don’t know if I will keep this account… Ye, there is a lot going on in my life at the moment, both good and bad things. So I’m not going to use tumblr anymore.. or at least not in a good couple of months.

So I hope all of you will have it great and thank you sosososo much for the support and being so kind and generous with your love <333 

anonymous asked:

hi, i just wanna ask about the links in your ghoul grumps masterpost. a lot of em dont work cuz is from your old blog n stuff i guess. could you maybe fix em?? or maybe later cuz it seems like a lotta work cuz thats a lotta links.

Yeah im aware theyre fucked up; i spent like…an hour fixing links before i had to leave the house (and you can see how much more i need to get done lmao). And like, i dont know if you READ it, but the link specifically says WIP because i am still very much working on it. Ive been going back to it constantly, doing little by little until its finished but just be aware that its gonna take awhile(every time i see the masterpost im like aaaAAAAAA)

I need to fix like 80% of the links(this is honestly the HARDEST part jfc), i have to add in a section for reverse ghoul grumps, i have to update the current descriptions for everyone, and i have to add descriptions for vernon, matt n ryan, tyler and ethan. Its taking forever but itll get done eventually anon dont worry


Man, this batch had a lot of big guys! Here’s Rotor for choromatsu-twan, Uncle Chuck for thatgirlcalledbcc, Nephthys for verdita2, Snively, Von Schlemmer and Mogul for robotnik-mun, Shortfuse and Tekno for cg-scrapbook, and finally E-123 Omega for crush-maim-destroy

Alright, so I’m still gonna be taking requests but I’m gonna let you guys know I’m only going to do 13 more characters! I need to get working on some other stuff, and I think I’ve gotten a good chunk of characters done so far. If you’ve already made a request and haven’t seen it yet, your all good! 13 may seem like a weird number, but with the requests I already have I’ll have about 2 more complete batches before I take a break. I’ll make another post in a bit with these slots and the characters I’ll be drawing next that I’ll be updating with each request so you guys will stay updated and know when there’s no more slots left.

I’m not done yet, but I just want to thank all you guys for making requests and participating! It’s been great stretching my artistic muscles and drawing all these wonderful characters, most of witch I hold really close to my childhood. So, thank you all, and I hope to do more request type stuff in the future!

If you want to make a request, check it out here for more info!

Added a working main menu to test with. I do have a test transition screen for going between scenes too but I didn’t quite have it set up to work with anything aside from  an active player collision so I’ll need to do something about that later and have it work with this scene change too. Really gotta do some optimization for loading, since there’s a huge lull during scene transitions as you can see. 

Also working on continuing stuff with a test world map. Lot to fix there, framerate and frame pacing/camera/etc, but I’ll get to it after I work on a few more things. 

Song used is “Crystal Note” by Scuedlia Electro, from King of Bandits:Jing OST.

Hair Update

Hey Hey Hey! Sidney here, updating you all on my hair routine because I have so many projects to work on for school and I thought this would be the perfect time to ignore everything and be on tumblr. Of course. So let’s just get into it. A lot has changed, which is why I haven’t really been answering hair questions..I was still trying to figure out things for myself! Ok, lets go:

First things first: Wash! I wash my hair once a week in the morning with this stuff. I get it from target. super cheap and you get a whole lot of product! It’s great. For those of you that aren’t familiar with co-washing: it’s basically one part shampoo, two parts conditioner. So, while you are washing your hair, you’re doing more moisturizing than anything. That’s what your hair needs! moisture! Traditional shampoos just strip all of the natural oils from your hair and that’s totally no bueno. (if you have a problem with frizz, this could be your answer) 

Now, since I only wash my hair once a week, and you’re supposed to deep condition once a week, that’s what I do! Ok..I’ve raved about this product a million times…but this will seriously transform your hair. I just….I just can’t. Trust me. You’ll love it. While my hair is eating up the goodness of this product ill detangle it with a wide tooth comb or just with my fingers. 

You better not reach for a regular bath towel!!! No No No! That thing is horrible for split ends! Invest in a microfiber towel just for your hair. Actually, It’s so soft that I picked up a few more for my face. You never want to be too rough on your hair or face right?! Right. I don’t dry my hair completely because the products that I use work better with wet hair. I just keep it so my hair does’t drip everywhere. 

Once I’m out the shower, I give my hair an extra detangling. For one, this product gives my hair a lot of moisture. Mostly, it creates a lot of slip, which keeps my hair detangled (for the time being) and helps to make sure that all of my products go on too my hair evenly. I get this from target. 

This product right here is my baby. Curl and style milk. I can never live with out it. I give my hair a generous amount of this. Locks in moisture and curl. Perfect. Target….duh.  

Bang Bang. Moving on to the smoothie. I pretty much treat this in the same way that I do the milk in the previous step. I give my hair a pretty generous amount…but not as much as the milk…if that makes sense to you. Le Target. 

This is next! haha. I actually just started using this but I think I like it so far. It really does give my hair a nice shine and makes it look healthier than what it is. I never use a lot though because if you use too much it can get a little oily. Just lightly coat your hair with this and that’s it! (I mean, that’s it for this product..there’s still more to go haha)  Target, again. 

You just put all that moisturizing yummy stuff in your hair and now you have to make sure that it stays like that! Lock it in there good! I used to use the Kinky Kurly Custard..and it was great. But it was getting too expensive for a small amount of product so I went searching for an alternative. This guy works just as well! The one thing that I love is that I haven’t ever reached a point of “using too much” of this product on my hair. With the Kinky Kurly product, I had to be suuuuper careful because that stuff can make my hair rock hard in a split second. But I find that with this Gel souffle, no matter how much I use, I always come out with a soft, strong hold on my curls. It’s lovely. From target! 

After this, give your hair some time to suck up all of this product. I usually wait for about an hour. That’s just enough time for me to do my make up, get dressed, eat breakfast, and make my lunch. 

Once I’ve waited for about an hour, I diffuse my hair. Now…I ran away from this device for a while because I thought it just gave my hair frizz. but that waiting an hour before you diffuse your hair thing is wonderful. It changes lives. I don’t like to diffuse all the way though. Just about until my hair is 60-70% dry. Then I’ll just let the rest air dry for the rest of the day. Since I live in Houston and I like big hair, the humidity works in my favor. Basically I diffuse to help lock in the curl more before I step out into the real world. Target, always. 

Then, mid-day, I’ll pull out my pick from my purse of wherever and start going at it! (your hair should be 100% dry by now) This creates even more volume! I always have my pick on me for quick lifts, if I feel like I need it. I stole this from my dad haha. I’m sure you can get this at a beauty supply store. Or that “Ethic hair” section in grocery stores.

Eventually night time will roll around and you have to figure out how to sleep and not ruin your masterpiece. I picked up this do-rag hair bag thingy from my local beauty supply store. It’s really just a satin bag, haha. I just put my hair in this thingy every night to keep my curl in place throughout the week. I also sleep on a satin pillow for extra protection (incase this thing falls of) but I guess if you’re wearing this, that can be totally optional.  

After this intensive wash day, for days 2-7ish I’ll just touch up with either the milk, smoothie, or gel souffle. For my hair though, touch ups aren’t really needed until day 4. 

And that’s it! I hope I answered all of the dying questions. If there are any more, feel free to shoot me a message. I’m so tired now though…long ass post haha. 

Sunday Shoutout





‘Elllo, so it hasn’t been a very busy week for me so I actually got to post some stuff this week, but I am stalled on a few post mostly involving The Glass Scientist, since there may be a important stuff happening in the future of the comic, and it may change the context of the post.

That being said, today is my day off! So aside form doing some paperwork and cleaning, I will be working on some post- like drawings and playlist. (I’m mostly trying to find songs for the Society of Arcane Science playlist, its hard to find songs! Does anyone know any good song for this playlist?????)

ALSO a very special thank you to  @fullychaoticpatrol @  doughnutdebauchery and @blobbeary for creating their own rogue scientist! I love seeing these and they did such a great job!

This is a message to my followers, I know that a lot of my followers are more mutuals than anything but here’s a the thing about me-I CHECK TAGS! Usually when I post things, I leave messages and easter eggs in the tags. Therefore, I assume that when someone reblogs something and don’t leave any tags- they’re keeping it on a normal mutual level. But for the people that DO leave tags or comments, its like leaving me a little thank you note that makes my day so much better (such as the beauty’s that left me these)

Honestly, you all are so wonderful! I truly do want to be closer to my followers! That’s why I love everyone creating their own rogue scientist- it tells me what you as a individual likes- you created the character after all. Perhaps in the near future, I’ll make a little bio of myself so you guys can know more about me, but in the mean time, I want to hear from you guys! 

one last note: I realize after reading a few post that I usually make a lot of typos and the reason being is because I usually get on tumblr on my phone so a lot of it get an incorrect autocorrect. It doesn’t happen as much when I use my laptop but it’s harder to type because I accidentally spilt coffee on my keyboard. It is what it is. 

Hey everyone! So, I’m making this post to bug you all again ;v; lol

Love where this is going and loving the updates =D I was wondering have you thought about Demyx and Luxord roles yet at all? Maybe have Demyx having a completely opposite personality maybe twisted even? Luxord could maybe be friends with Xaldin still or be alot closer to Xigbar?

Ah thank you! I’m doing my best at the moment to get the basics done so I can think more into the story and where things will exactly go. I’ll eventually get somewhere though uvu

Luxord and Demyx are too characters I haven’t thought too much about but I have been planning to get around to doing so! But roughly I do plan for them to be similar to how they are in the KH canon. I just need to figure out more stuff about how they respond / react to some of the circumstances in the AU and different roles that some characters have.

For Demyx, I have had thoughts where even though there is stuff he didn’t feel exactly up to doing ( like in canon ) He’s a lot more worked and made to do it / usually ends up doing it because Lexaeus gets him to do it. Since, like I’ve mentioned - who wants to get on the wrong side of him? One of the organisations power houses. So it’s like, Lexaeus / Xaldin tend to have a closer eye on Demyx or expect him to do some sort of work either way - a pickle not so easily gotten out of with excuses or something like so. But this is a very rough idea and I’ll maybe have some more details later on when I’ve thought more into it.

Luxord however? I’m still not too 100% on what hes like the AU. I still reckon he’s like how he is in canon, just the way he interacts with some characters is a little bit different I suppose. Luxord may for one know how to engage with everyone or when to pick sides due to the discourse that seems to be present within the organisation and tension that Lexaeus and Xaldin can course with their formidable presences.

I may have some more details about them at some point since again, I’m at the moment focusing on redesigning / adjusting designs etc for the AU at the moment. Characterisation and story stuff will follow up however.

Just want to say I had quick look at your new website and it's awesome! I admitted I have only went Radio Interviews section. It saves me a lot of time, so I can waste my time more efficiently, thank you so much for your work Nicole!

Oh, cool! Glad you like. Obviously, there’s still a tonne of stuff I still need to do, but I figured I may as well just put the link out there and post updates as I go. *shrugs*

Insofar as the radio interviews go, I just wish I’d become a fan earlier! Catching up is the worst - SO much stuff disappears overtime online, lol. I’ll eventually add video interviews to the section, but still in the beginning of the sorting/renaming process for that.

hello, i have returned, hope you don't mind. but i need some advice on how to get my writing "out there". i've been posting stuff on my writing blog, but it just doesn't seem to be going anywhere, but i don't really know what else to do with my stuff. surely you know how to get things out there? (ps. is it okay if i ask more questions about writing? i seem to have a lot. apologies in advance!)

Hey Freaky,

It depends what kind of writing it is. In general, writing for your own blog will never go anywhere. The ratio of popular blogs to total blogs is probably slightly worse than one in a million; I’ve done pretty well as a novelist, but my traffic here on my blog is quite light. The way you get work “out there” is simple: you submit it to places that publish the sort of writing you’re doing. If you’re terrified of rejection, you can also go with a place like “Medium,” which has occasionally brought a total amateur/newbie into the public sphere. But even that depends on a certain amount of luck (i.e. your post going viral). In the end, the best way is the standard way: start formally submitting to websites and print magazines that already have a built-in readership.
