Hey everyone! I've been in taekwondo for almost 6 years--the last three years I've spent competing all over the west coast, from local state tournaments to USAT National Qualifiers and Championships. I've trained with a handful of Masters and Coaches, but the school I call home is quickly comin...

Hi guys! Please check this out/share if you can! For those of you who’ve been around me for a while or have seen how much I love Taekwondo and Martial Arts, this won’t really be a surprise, but I’ve set up a fundraiser to help me get to competitions. The Jimmy Kim Invitational, specifically. 

The Taekwondo school I work in/call home is coming under new management, and myself, current Master, and fellow instructors won’t be sponsored by the school anymore. Meaning that I have to come up with the money for competition fees myself. Being in school kind of drains all my income, so any kind of support or donation will help me tremendously. 

Thank you!

and message me for my snapchat or twitter! :’)

OKAY, here is my plan (kinda lol)


First of all, I want to thank everyone for their patience and support; I really appreciate all the kind messages! No, I did not forget about you all. No, I still love the GazettE verrrrrrry much. Remember how I said that I would start working on translations more often once summer break started because I would have more time?

Well, reality basically said SCREW THAT. After about 3 days of rest, I immediately started summer classes for about a month (I kinda had to set my life priorities straight). These courses that are normally taught over a single quarter were CONDENSED into a MONTH, so it was just school, study, exercise, eat, face plant in a textbook/ laptop and fall asleep, repeat. I was bombarded with assignments, readings, and exams, so I was really exhausted and had no time or the energy to do leisurely activities, make translations, or anything else not associated with school. I think I didn’t even listen to music for a few days at one point because I really needed some extreme concentration to study for my final exams.

I finished summer school about a month ago, but I was still busy because I was running errands and helping out with my dad’s business. I felt like I didn’t really start my summer break until about a week and a half ago. So I decided to take an exciting trip with a friend, have a proper summer vacation, and enjoy life to the fullest because I don’t have that much time left until I start school later again. Soooooooo,

GUUYYSSSSSSS. I’M SOON GOING TO BE BREATHING THE SAME AIR AS THE GAZETTE. I’M *happily sobbing* GOING TO THE LAND OF MY DREAMS (for about a week towards the end of this month). 

JAPAN, HERE I COME! (It will be my first time *twinkly eyes*)

So, I’ll start translations and will come back after my trip (or possibly when school starts because it will be around the same timeframe) :) I’ll try and see if I can post some pictures or updates about/during my trip. And hopefully, I can get some GazettE merch on my hands as well :D

Honestly i love my new school so much!! I’m having such a good time and we have so much art it’s GREEAAAAAAAT!!!!! ✨💕💖☁️💖💕✨

Announcement Time

So tomorrow I start school again ! This is a completely new school though so I really don’t know how my schedule will be and/or what’s to come so it might be hectic I’m not sure myself. Knowing my parents, they’ll be pretty strict to make sure that school is my first priority so like many others, I will not be as daily/active with this blog. But not to worry because I absolutely love this blog and the Daily Community so I’ll do my best to update as much as I can.

Thank you for understanding !

ok so me and my bff are having a really deep convo right now cause shit has been happening at school, and i think the reason i care so much is because i might be slighty in love with her 😁😁 and she is 100% straight, halp me


ya-girl-amya  asked:

why are you bribing people? 'if you want a full explanation, pay me money' wtf? not cool..

I don’t look at it as a bribe. I get many requests for full interpretations that I would love to do, but can’t because I am both a full time student and work a full time job. 

I would love to be able to do this full time, but realistically I can’t unless I get paid for it.

Mary Kay is something I do on the side to help pay for my tuition, as I am paying it out of pocket. I figured I’d give people the option to get their charts done by me because I have so many people asking and would honestly love to do it, but can’t unless the hours I put toward it will help me reach my goals.

My time needs to be spent on school and making money, this blog is a hobby and it would take hours for me to do a full chart interpretation to my full ability. As much as I would love to devote more time to astrology than to school or my two jobs, I can’t. 

But that’s why I wanted to give the people who have been so amazing and supportive of my hobby the opportunity to get my interpretation of their charts if they felt it was worth the money. Plus they’d get amazing product out of it too! :) 

I feel so bad that I can’t give my followers what they want for free, but this was the only way I could think of to do more for them. If no one wants to pay for my charts that’s fine! I just thought I’d put the option out there so that I could meet my followers half way.

Sorry if you were offended by my Mary Kay posts, but it is my blog, and I’ll continue to do what I think is best for both myself and my followers!

Hello! I loved your post of college life and I was just wondering, what if you don't go to your dream college or you don't have the money to afford a bachelor's degree from where you want, are the prospects better when you apply for your masters? and also, is a degree really worth all the trouble? I mean I love studying and all but sometimes seeing I don't perform as well as I wish it gets me down, any tip?

Hi! Thanks! :) I hope it helped some. :)

That first part is difficult for me in particular, because I didn’t worry about where I went too much. It was one of those things that just happened because it was supposed to go that way.

I’d already made friends at my college before I even went there, so I had a pre-made friend group, and in addition that, I even knew some people in high school that were going there too (before and after me).

I was familiar with the campus, it was the right distance from home (close enough to visit regularly and far enough away that I could get warning before they dropped in), my sister was already there, I’d heard enough about the programs I wanted… I could go on for quite a while.

It was just the natural decision for me. Every other college I looked at really didn’t fit what I wanted, and one of the only other places I liked had mold in the dorm pipes, so I couldn’t stay there with my asthma.

The more specific your desired degree is, the narrower your search will be.

For general undergrad stuff, if you’re not going into a specialized field like nursing, then you can pretty much just go wherever will accept you. Most people aren’t going to care about where you got your bachelor’s from, especially if you’re going for your master’s.

The prospects are much more difficult for the master’s stuff. Again, I ended up in the right place at the right time. One of my good friends was getting her master’s in the exact same department as me. She talked about it, and I did the math, and it turned out I could totally do it. So I took the GRE at the end October so I could apply before the end of November.

Yes. I pushed my luck. Got my GRE done in time. Got good scores. Life seemed good.

Got my application and sent it along at an unfortunate time. I ended up having to e-mail my advisor to find out what was going on, and I didn’t get accepted into the concentration that I wanted (which was fiction). So I went and cried a whole bunch.

Then I sucked it up and agreed to do literature. What’s interesting here is that I almost applied for two concentrations at once. I wanted to include half of my writing as poetry and the other half as fiction. I decided not to risk it and only did fiction. I was told that the leaders of the program thought that I couldn’t produce a “quality, mature thesis.”

I was heartbroken. But I wasn’t ready to give up. So I started poking around in the other concentrations. I probably looked absolutely ridiculous to my advisor. I just couldn’t settle down. I’d had my heart set on fiction, but I knew it wasn’t going to happen.

Due to my anxiety, I suddenly didn’t feel confident enough to approach the poetry people to see if I could do that. I found out that I had a knack for creative non-fiction and tried to give it a shot. It didn’t stick.

I dabbled until I randomly got the courage at a faculty get-together and asked Dr. Tom if I could work with him for poetry. And he said yes! I had an idea for my thesis shortly afterward and worked on it for the next year. Finished my degree last May, and the rest is history. :)

You never know where you’ll end up or what you’ll end up doing. You could have your heart set on something that won’t work out for you. And it may be one of those things that you just know in your heart will never work out at that specific school.

My poetry was just… better. And so now I have this bad boy: http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/theses/1506/

((By the way, I’m actually thinking about publishing it through Barnes & Noble since their little book-printing service looks amazing. If anyone would be interested in purchasing a copy of this, please let me know so I can see if there’s even any demand for it.))

I’m really, genuinely glad I produced this particular thesis. And it never would have happened if I’d fought against the grain to get something that probably wouldn’t have turned out as well as this did.

Sometimes, you just need to let the current of life take you where you need to be. It might seem strange and upsetting at first, but it works out. Somehow, it all works out.

As far as performance anxiety goes, it is definitely stressful, but if you like a good challenge, you’ll love it! College is largely about regurgitating information to prove that you retained it, but grad school is a whole different beast.

In grad school, you create ideas and context around what you’re given. You start with your thoughts and feelings and work toward something concrete that can be discussed.

The classes are largely discussion-based (at least in the English group), and you get to do presentations and projects based on what you’ve discovered.

You learn about literary criticism and so, so much other cool stuff. You get practice with teaching, with lesson-planning, with interviews–whatever you can tailor to what you want to get out of going to school.

See how you feel after you go through college first. Grad school is nothing like the school you’re used to. Seriously.

As for going for degrees in general, I think it’s not a bad idea. I really value the experiences that I had in the classroom, and now I have documents on documents that can back me up and show me how far I’ve come.

You need to be able to interact with others if you want to take the craft of writing seriously. Get out of your comfort zone, read good books, talk to people, try new things–there’s a lot to it that you just can’t get on your own without triple the time and effort.

And if you don’t get good grades in college, you might not be cut out for grad school, unfortunately. It requires a lot more dedication. A C is essentially an F in a grad school class. If you’re getting C’s in undergrad, then grad school will prove to be a waste of time and money, simply because they’ll probably ask you to leave.

It is definitely a lot of pressure to do well, but you are given ample time and resources to do so. You have to actually push yourself.

The fact that you’re thinking about getting a master’s is significant, though. Generally, the type of people thinking about going to grad school are the ones who are actually capable of pulling it off.

Every time you feel down because you’re not doing as well as you wish, then “stop being sad and start being awesome instead,” as the great Barney Stinson once said. Buckle down and do better.

Take that energy of feeling defeated and push it toward being better. Find a way to make it work. Don’t stop and let yourself be sad–just keep going, no matter how much it sucks.

And eventually, you’ll just be better and start living up to your own expectations.

Procrastinate on feeling sad until you literally don’t have a reason to be sad.

It’s dumb, but it works.

Whatever you think you can do, you can do.

If you have any more questions, let me know! I really hope this helps you make some decisions. :)

It gets better.

Hey guys! So, for the first time being in a tumblr fandom in over four years, the Voltron fandom wasn’t too horrible of an experience. I’ve made so many amazing friends and I love you all. I’ve also had such a massive influx of followers (I just hit 1k awhile back). But at the same time, all these followers make me feel a sense of obligation towards keeping up this blog. At the same time as I want to keep you guys happy, I also have to think about myself. 

Between school and work, I’ve adopted quite the demanding semester. This along with some other things in my life, I’m just gonna say, I don’t have my shit together at all. And as much as I’d love to keep blogging and avoiding my problems on tumblr, there’s a point in which I have to face reality and realize that there are much more important things that I have to do in my life. 

Basically, I can’t balance tumblr and real life at all, and until I learn to, I’ll be on semi-hiatus (although I may pop in every once in awhile). Feel free to contact me on skype or follow me on insta (@cheenachii) if you want to keep in touch!

Thank you all for sticking with me!

The girl power is strong in the Laboratory Sciences program at my school.

All of the professors are women, and so is the department head.

The department head has her doctorate, but tells us stories all the time about how she got her master’s while raising 2 small children. One of my professors is from Mexico and not only has her masters in MLS, but also in public health. She’s ridiculously intelligent and she loves teaching so much. Another one of my professors is currently in Africa on a medical mission showing village doctors how to use a portable hematology machine to diagnose blood disorders and infections.

I am so inspired every day.

1. Death Note

Ryuk is love, Ryuk is life

I’m a sucker for romantic ones, though the manga is a little teeny-tiny bit better. The anime had great art though and it definitely conveyed the relationship between the two main characters perfectly

3. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

I love this so, so, so, so much. Is there season 2? I need it
It’s the funniest, seriously

4. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
    (Daily Lives of High School Boys)

I like a good comedy

5. Kimi to Boku

Do yourself a favour and just watch it, it’s so beautiful, and read the manga

But yeah, that’s about it. It’s been a looooong time since I last watched any anime so I got nothing new here ^^’‘

Headcanon requests are now closed, and one-shot requests are still closed. My lazy—and busy—ass needs to actually get their head in the game because I have a lot to do for you guys, and I’m really trying to make you all happy when I can with my imagine writing and Wattpad updating but I really want to succeed in school and focus on my mental health ;v;

That being said, I’m not a procrastinator. I love getting my stuff done right off the bat, so whenever I finish my homework, I usually have free time and I’ll either be napping or on the blog. I’m trying to be a good mod for all of you!

Love you angels so much, stay strong.

Hey as much as I love the idea of desperate and clingy Kylo I'm starting to think we shouldn't really romanticize it :| know a guy like that and he legit sacrificed his friends and school cause she was gone for a day starting to think it ain't healthy

That sort of behavior certainly is not healthy at all; I agree with you 100%.

I can’t think of anything I’ve written that has Kylo in a dynamic like that (if I have please link me immediately so I can fix my mistake) - usually when I write a clingy/desperate Kylo (so to speak) it’s in a “he’s desperate to cum” or “he’s holding you close and gripping onto your skin” kind of way for the reader’s sensory purposes (touched starved kinda thing), not a literal clingy/desperate to the point where he’d isolate himself like that.

I actually think Kylo dropping everything and sacrificing everything for a lover would be out of character for him, but that’s besides the point. It’s definitely unhealthy, as you said. Totally not something that should be romanticized regardless of if its in character for Kylo or not (or anyone).

As a former victim of an abusive relationship, I try really hard to avoid abusive tendencies in my work (since I’ve also experienced first hand how the romanticization and sexualization of abusive behaviors fucks over victims) so like I said, if I’m wrong or I made a mistake and have written something that comes across this way, please send me a link asap and I’ll make sure to give it a quick edit or rewrite to fix the problem. Idk if you were referring to a piece I wrote or just Kylo fics in general so I wanna make sure my bases are covered but like I said, I don’t think I’ve written anything like this?

I’m rambling now, I’ll stop talking lol
