idk how to tag this

*curtsies*. Hey Duke. Do you have tips or suggestions on being well spoken?

*Curtsies* I really think the biggest thing is just to think before you talk. And in my experience, nobody is going to be unimpressed if you pause and say, “Let me think about that,” before answering a questions or sharing your thoughts. It gives a much better impression than if you’re stumbling and stammering your way through a sentence because you didn’t know where it was going when you started it. (This works very well in interviews, just btw.) Take your time. In addition to being able to better express yourself, if you’re not rushing through a conversation it’ll help everyone relax.

lemme tell you i am so fucking tired of angsty vampires. its enough. 

give me a newly-turned twenty-something vampire who hears about their newfound immortality and is like “thank god,” then proceeds to invest in some promising startups and fucks off to take a nap for two decades

give me a vampire thats only the tiniest bit phased at the blood diet because “eh, i tried paleo a while back and it was just as weird”

give me a vampire with self image issues who never has to avoid mirrors again because - bingo - no reflection

give me a genderqueer vampire who finally has an answer when someone asks their gender. “are you a boy or a girl?” “i am a vampire.” “but whats in your pants?” “fangs.” 

best of all, give me a vampire chick who is so stoked about being nocturnal because she’s never been able to walk alone after dark before and it’s nice to be able to walk her friends home and know theyre all safe with her

To new, inexperienced drivers:

so idk if they teach you this in drivers’ ed class or whatever, but if you see someone in the opposite direction flashing their high beams at you, they’re NOT being a dick. they’re saying, “SLOW DOWN, I just saw a police car back there”.


If I hadn’t known that today, I wouldn’t have noticed the police car hiding in its fox hole and gotten a ticket for going 20 over the speed limit. and I’m glad I don’t have to pay $80 for a dumb mistake!!!

[EDIT!!!] I am in no way advocating people who speed on purpose. you stop that!!! Always try to follow the speed limit! But some people can get a little distracted so it’s nice to have a reminder to check your speed.
