Art by @taffyslap

So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite dragon ball art blogs

@finalassflash is definitely my favorite. They’re really awesome and sweet, not to mention their artwork and art style is amazing.

@betaruga AMAZING ART!! Like seriously if you haven’t followed them by now something is wrong. Not to mention their dbz content is incredible and they’re just overall a really good person

@lem0uro LIKE??????? INCREDIBLE ART STYLE AND USE OF COLORS. Honestly I’d make a wish on Shenron to have half of their artistic skill.

@manialwaysfeelsoguilty if I’m right they basically started the Saiyan Sibling au???? Which is like probably one of the best AU’s out there.

@squidbiscuit while not strictly a dbz blog their art style is so squishy and lovable and they have created a LOT of great dbz content!

Anyways these are some of my favorites! All of them definitely inspired me to make this blog, and to draw more (which means more Qubé aye ohhhh)

Love you guys! Expect texts tonight!

Day 10: Do you have a favorite pattern or designer?

My knowledge of designers is pretty limited, since my use of patterns is pretty limited. It has only been in the last year that I really started to purchase patterns and books. I have to say it has been a difficult and good journey. Patterns grow your knitting skills a lot. Everyone has their own way of knitting, and some people have some great tricks and tips.

To shout out a designer I really like, that would be Helga Isager. I love her use of texture, and I find most of her works are unique.

I'm terrible at learning spoken languages however I decided to learn sign language and I'm not bad at it

That’s awesome! My mom knows a good bit of sign language because she had a deaf friend growing up. She taught me some but I haven’t used it so I’ve lost it. It’s an amazing skill and more people should learn it. My cousin’s little boy (he’s 2) is learning it at daycare which I think is great.

Classical Language Learning Masterpost

I’m not studying any Greek or Roman this coming year (I sacrificed intro classical languages for gender & history), but I will be doing a Roman history module and engaging with the language is always useful. I know a few people who have been looking for Greek/Latin learning resources, which is how this list came about. It includes MOOCs, youtube videos and websites. Not really knowing much Latin or Greek I can’t vouch for them 100% but my googling skills are pretty on point, so they should be okay. Feel free to correct me or add to this.

Latin

Getting started on classical Latin

  • Duration 10 hours
  • Introductory level
  • This free course, Getting started on classical Latin, has been developed in response to requests from learners who had had no contact with Latin before and who felt they would like to spend a little time preparing for the kind of learning that studying a classical language involves. The course will give you a taster of what is involved in the very early stages of learning Latin and will offer you the opportunity to put in some early practice.

Continuing classical Latin

  • Duration 4 hours
  • Intermediate level
  • This free course, Continuing classical Latin, gives you the opportunity to hear a discussion of the development of the Latin language.

FLVS Latin

  • As we build our Via Latina, we will travel back to ancient Rome. On our travels we learn about their culture, history and literature.

National Archives: Beginner’s Latin

  • Welcome to the beginners’ Latin tutorials. These lessons cover the type of Latin used in official documents written in England between 1086 and 1733. This can be quite different from classical Latin, as used by the Ancient Romans.

Learn Latin

  • Here are two dozen short lessons on learning Latin designed for “mountain men” (and women: montani montanaeque), engineers, philosophers, and anyone else looking for entertainment and with lots of free time by the campfire. My course is quite different from Peter Jones’ Learn Latin (New York: Barnes and Noble, 1997), but it is just as devoted to interesting you in Latin.

Learn Latin (Learn101)

  • I would like to welcome you to the Latin lessons. I’m here to help you learn Latin, by going step by step. All the lessons contain audio and are all offered for free.

The London Latin Course

  • Learn Latin from the ground up. This is a serial course, structured to bring you to a high level of Latin fluency. The pace is slow and unhurried. This course is suitable for all ability levels. Restored Classical Pronunciation.

Latin Online

  • Latin is probably the easiest of the older languages for speakers of English to learn, both because of their earlier relationship and because of the long use of Latin as the language of educational, ecclesiastical, legal and political affairs in western culture.

Latin Excercises

  • Welcome to UVic’s practice exercises for Wheelock’s Latin (6th edition). There are 40 units comprising many hundreds of exercises to help you consolidate your progress in the classroom and with the textbook.

Introducing Ancient Greek

  • If you are starting to learn Ancient Greek, this site is for you! This site will help you prepare for a Beginner’s Ancient Greek course.

Classical Greek Online

  • Greek has been important in the intellectual life of western civilization, but not to the extent of Latin except for ecclesiastical matters. In years past, Latin was introduced in the first year of High School, followed by Greek in the third year.

Ancient Greek Online

Teach Yourself Ancient Greek

  • The material presented here will be of use to anyone beginning ancient Greek, but is specifically designed to accompany our book.

Ancient Greek Grammar

  • 103 videos

Greek & Latin

Introducing the Classical world

  • Duration 20 hours
  • Intermediate level
  • How do we learn about the world of the ancient Romans and Greeks?

college note taking 101: how i take notes and use them to study for exams

in lecture:

  • i like to take quick/shorthand notes because i think learning to discriminate between what is and isn’t important material is a good skill to have so i’m not drowning in useless information when it’s time to study for a midterm or final.
  • i like to bring my ipad and use the notability app. it’s easier for me to just carry an ipad mini and stylus than it is for me to lug around a heavy notebook/binder and several pens/pencils.
    • if the professor makes lecture slides available to students online (via a class website), i like to download them onto notability and annotate them as the professor goes along. that way, i can focus more on what the professor is saying and less on merely writing everything down.
    • if lecture slides aren’t available, i type out my notes as i find it faster than handwriting them.

at home:

  • once i’m home, i take out my ipad and copy down my lecture notes into a specified notebook for that class, explain everything more thoroughly, make them neater, and organize them in a way that makes more sense to me (as opposed to copying them down exactly as how they were presented in lecture).
  • i like to use lots of colors, highlighters, and etc. and make them as pretty as possible so i actually want to use them to study from in the future.

integrating reading notes:

  • normally, what professors will do is assign reading from a textbook and base their lectures around the reading (or have the reading be based on the lectures). usually exams/tests will rely mostly on what was said in lecture instead of in the reading and this is partly because they overlap so much. what the professor says in lecture, you should consider the “important points” in your reading. sometimes, though, there are things in the reading that seem important and weren’t mentioned in lecture.
    • what i’ll do if this is the case is take post-its, write the piece of information down, and stick the post-it in my notebook in the corresponding section (i.e. where it fits best with my notes)
      • i like this method as opposed to taking notes directly in my textbook or having a separate notebook for only reading notes because 1) i’ve consistently found that reading material is not as heavily focused on in tests as lecture material and 2) i like to have all of my information in one place

using my notes to study:

  • when an exam is coming up, what i like to do is take all of the information in my notebook and condense it into a study guide that i can use to study from.
    • the format of my study guide varies depending on the class and which type of study guide and method of studying i think will help me best. my study guides range from flash cards to mind maps to sheets of paper with a bunch of condensed information.
    • if i come across a concept on my study guide that i can’t completely explain to myself/don’t fully understand, that’s when i’ll look back in my notebook for a better and fuller explanation of it.
  • i also like to give myself some time before an exam to completely read through my notebook and look at all the notes i’ve taken (not just what i have on my study guide) because i think it’s a good refresher of all of the lecture and reading material and all of the information will be brought forward in my mind.

[* a few of you have asked me for a advice on note taking: how i take notes, methods i use, how i study from them, and etc. i hope this post was helpful to you! feel free to message me if you have any other questions. happy studying! ^_^]

#SPN10 countdown challenge  |  day 1 - season 5, episode 22

Sam: You’re going to let me say yes?
Dean: No. That’s the thing. It’s not on me to let you do anything. You’re a grown - well, overgrown - man. If this is what you want, I’ll back your play.
Sam: That’s the last thing I thought you’d ever say.
Dean: Might be. I’m not gonna lie to you, though. It goes against every fibre I got. I mean, truth is… you know, watching out for you… it’s kinda been my job. More than that. It’s… it’s kinda who I am. You’re not a kid any more, Sam,, and I can’t keep treating you like one. Maybe I gotta grow up a little, too. I don’t know if we’ve got a snowball’s chance. But… but I do know that if anybody can do it, it’s you.
Sam: Thank you.
Dean: If this is what you want… is this really what you want?
Sam: I let him out. I’ve got to put him back in.
Dean: Okay. That’s it, then.

perhaps we are approaching the new season’s name wrong. it is not ‘the world twinkle’ with 'twinkle’ being a gratuitous english verb conjugated erroneously. i believe it may be a noun, as in, it is the twinkle of the world: its happy gleam present in its glittering blue waters, its peoples’ bright smiles, the sense of unity present when we come together. the twinkle is what makes the who am i joking it’s a shit name, they fucked up 

Understanding The Spectrum

I hear alot of people misinterpreting or misusing the term ‘autism spectrum’. So for Autism Acceptance week, I decided to make a comic to help explain the term and how it affects things. Archie is one of the reasons I became so interested/knowledgeable in autism (I like to go all out in research when I write characters for comics n such) so he’s the one presenting everything! The rest of the comic is under the cut, because I don’t want to spam ^^;

(2/4) “ISIS needs educated people to support them. None of them finished school. They cannot manage the cities they capture because they have no skills. When they took me to prison, at first they were very aggressive. They kept putting a gun to my head and taking it away. But after a few minutes of this, one of the men began speaking to me in a very nice way. He said: ‘You are an Islamic man. Please, be a good Muslim and help us. We want your wife to open a hospital for us. And we want you to manage it.’ I agreed to everything they asked. I told them I would help. Then the moment they let me go home, we packed our bags and left.”

11.3.16 Back studying now my new sketchbook finally arrived! Looking at old projects just seeing how much I have developed in skill right now. Also, I bought this vintage filofax and I think I’m going to use it next year! Currently reading Glass Sword, and listening to some Black Sabbath which is surprisingly good to work to! xxx emily

learn how to code!

everyone should learn how to code. it’s a lot of fun, its a useful skill in any field, and its a really easy skill to learn if you have a good place to learn it, and in my experience it’s learnt best when its self driven!

notepad++ and atom are really good applications for writing code

i’ll add to this more when i find more links (feel free to send them!), and i’ll probably make posts about the theory behind coding languages, human-computer interactions, and algorithms but i’m sure you can find stuff on academic earth if you look under computer science!

Having trouble visualizing?

I’ll be honest. As soon as someone says “Antheia, think of a bright light between your hands,” I’m out. While visualization works very well for me when I’m grounding, meditating, or shielding,  I find it hinders rather than helps when I get to actual spellcraft and more complicated energy work. While visualization is a skill that is very useful and good to practice, here’s a few solutions.

  1. Do something physical. When you’re putting up your shields, lift your hands with your shield. When you’re cleansing yourself or something, rub it down as though you were washing mud and grime off of yourself/the object. Imagine the heat of your skin is the energy that you’re putting into something. While you might feel a little silly at first, I’ve found that doing something along with your energy work can be really helpful in putting you into the right mindset. In terms of spell craft, sometimes making something that you can hold physically will help, as well.
  2. Command it. You will do as you please. Saying it out loud can also be helpful if you’re having trouble visualizing. “I’m raising my shields/My shields are up.” “The energy will…” “My intent is…” Simple commands can be very effective, just don’t get too caught up in having good grammar or anything. Sometimes one word works. Sometimes you might want to dictate what you feel or what you want to happen.
  3. Do some breathing exercises. These are not for everybody, but again, something physical for you to do. A very simple exercise is to imagine your shields swelling big big bigger when you inhale, and then coming in tight around you, right against your skin, when you exhale. Works with energy, works with some spells, helps with meditation and grounding.
  4. Close your eyes. Sometimes, especially when you’re a beginner and can’t see what you’re doing, just closing your eyes can make a difference. By taking away that sense, you sharpen your other senses a little more, and it gets a lot easier to practice. When I’m in a very high or low part of my mood disorder, I have a lot of trouble concentrating on magic and on energy. I find that closing my eyes can help me by disconnecting me a little from what I’m seeing and I can pay more attention to what I’m actually doing.

Again, these are things that I do when I’m having issues with visualization. If they don’t work for you, try something else! These aren’t the only ways, and you can combine them however you’d like. I’d also love to know the practices that other people use in energy work, be it visualization, one of these techniques, a combination, or something else entirely!
