I don’t really know if it’ll go anywhere yet because I’m definitely still busy for the next few months, but I finally started a Savitar/Len fic tonight and it feels good to get back to writing, even just a little :)

And apparently I was in the mood to write nightmares? It has barely any structure and almost no words on the page but somehow I already wrote two nightmares that’ll go into it.

It’s called “After Hours with Sorrow” and I hope I figure out what I’m doing with it enough to finish it :) 

Fathers Day

So, I did some Googling, because I keep seeing idiots with the hashtag #EndFathersDay post tweets on tumblr to abolish it because it somehow promotes male superiority and dehumanizes women, or some BS like that, idk what their argument even is.  Anyway, as I was digging, I found something that will probably really bug feminists who want to end fathers day on here.

In 1910, the first fathers day was celebrated in a YMCA in Washington.  The person who was responsible for it?  Sonora Smart Dodd.  A woman who wanted to celebrate fathers, and fatherhood and all that fathers do for their children.  She wanted to celebrate the accomplishments of fathers because she was inspired by the holiday of mothersday, and even more so because her father had raised her as a single parent.  It would not be until the 60’s for the day to have a set date, but the origins date back to this amazing woman.

it’s happened to all of us before. you go to bed at your set time, you sleep, and then…you wake up, check your phone and it’s already 12pm?! it seems like you’ve already lost half of the day. poof. it’s gone. which, sorry to burst that bubble of positivity, is true. HOWEVER! here’s how you can make the most of the remaining time. it’ll almost be as if you got up at 6 am instead ;)

get your booty out of bed

starting is always the hardest thing to do, but once you’ve begun, you’ll have momentum to continue. the same goes with waking up. don’t go on your phone, check social media, or just lay there. actually get up.

let there be light

natural light has been proven to wake you up. in fact, white light (which is really blue light) suppresses the production of melatonin, the hormone that makes you sleepy. opening up the blinds and letting in the midday light will not only brighten up the room, but also your mood (especially if you are in a grumpy one since you got up late)!

hint of mint

peppermint oil is a must in the mornings for me. i always make sure to dab some on the collar of my shirt since it perks up my senses and helps me stay awake, aware, and active throughout the day. any minty scent will work too as it really gets the senses up and running.

cold water. ‘nuff said.

washing your face with cold water will help jolt you awake, especially since you’ve been asleep for a long time and feeling extra groggy this fine morning afternoon. don’t forget to brush your teeth, too! all that junk in your mouth is icky and you don’t want to be swallowing any of it down with your breakfast brunch.

hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

down a tall glass of water since your body has been deprived of it for the past 12+ hours that you’ve been sleeping. drinking plenty of water will not only help you refresh yourself, but also rehydrate you and your brain, kickstart your metabolism, and help your body rid itself of unwanted toxins.

take a break for breakfast

even if twenty minutes have already passed from when you got up, don’t skip on breakfast. the first meal of the day is so so so incredibly important, and you’ve probably heard the phrase “don’t skip breakfast” so many damn times to the point of annoyance, but you gotta go with it and don’t skip it ;) wow unintentional rhyme there heh

some quick + healthy breakfast ideas:

  • oatmeal with raisins and dried cranberries
  • waffles with nut butter (peanut, almond, etc) of your fancy and sliced bananas + honey
  • yogurt with grapes and granola
  • toast with yogurt (in lieu of cream cheese) and smoked salmon (sounds gross but tastes delish) fish…delish rhymes with fish…i digress
  • milk, banana, strawberry, and mango juice smoothie
  • mint green tea and toast with sliced bananas and honey
  • apple slices and nut butter
  • carrots and broccoli with hummus

make a plan to slay today

get a plain white A4 sheet of paper and make a list of what you want to get done. it does not have to be neat and it does not have to be pretty. it just needs to include what you need to accomplish. idk about you, but drawing a nice line through a task i’ve completed is just the most satisfying feeling ever :’)

get out there and get it done!

now that you’re awake and ready, make the best use of your time and get started on what you need to do! and don’t forget to let @bookfully know if she should make more posts like this if you found it helpful hehe. good day and good luck!

This is going to be a really personal post, but I need to do some reflecting.

After completing third year of medical school, I feel amazing. I feel like I’ve developed a competence for my training level that I haven’t felt in so long. This is going to sound really cocky, but I’m so proud. I can’t explain it. I’ve come to the realization that medicine comes naturally to me. My clinical grades and comments have been outstanding and exceptional, and I’m truly very proud of myself for coming this far.

Now that I’ve made an ass of myself, let me tell you the whole story. I went to a very prestigious university. After high school, I was used to being called smart and being “the best”. Whatever that means. Well, after attending a university where everyone else was “the best”, I had to face reality. My grades were ok, not amazing. My MCAT was average. I only interviewed at 3 medical schools Don’t get me wrong, I’ve very fortunate I got 3 interviews to MD schools, but I watched most of my friends get dozens and felt incompetent even though I now know I was fine. And for the first time in my life, I struggled with truly crippling anxiety and sought out help.

I came to medical school eager for new beginnings. Wow, I was hit with harsh reality again. Medical school is freaking hard, and everyone is more impressive. I struggled to keep up. In second year, I had a second run with crippling anxiety, but this time was far worse and my physical health also declined as a result. I failed several midterms and barely scrapped by on several finals. Now that I’m looking back retrospectively, I once again realized that I was extremely fortunate because I never had to remediate, but I know many who did. Medical school sucks. It just does.

Once again, I got help, just in time for Step 1, and thank god I did. I was able to push through and actually do better on Step 1 than I could’ve imagined after my mediocre preclinical performance.

Then came clinical years. I finally hit my stride somewhere. I don’t know when, and I don’t know how. But I’ve somehow racked up a series of grades and experiences that I could never have imagined all while enjoying myself along the way. After reading through my MSPE, I’ve realized that yes, medicine comes naturally to me, and this is where I’m supposed to be. I’m not trying to boast or one-up anyone or even prove that anyone can do what I did and overcome anxiety. I’m just sharing my experience and for once in my life, I can finally say that I’m damn proud of myself. I’m sure residency will bring it’s own set of hardships and feelings of incompetence, but I want to remember this feeling and that it does get better. I may not have many amazing accomplishments in my life, but I can say that I’ll be a great doctor. To me, that’s all that matters.

so in a recent (? idk the source sorry i just saw a screenshot of it on twt) interview said one his goals was to have 'a voice he loved' (ripping my heart out and nearly making my cry in the process) and now,,, now im rly thinking abt all those times yg's said jm's voice is his fave, how he wants to write a song for jm, how sweet is voice is... like can they Not make my heart ache on any given day??? no??? okay

what is your goal for your music to accomplish?

jimin: i want to have a voice i love.

he’s said before in that one log that he’s only been taking vocal lessons because his goal is to present a vocal that can move people / move one’s heart….. doesn’t that remind you of the fact that yoongi’s always mentioning how hardworking jimin is and how much he’s improved, and stating that it’s one of the coolest things about him,,, as well as the fact that he’s always talking about how he wants to make music for + with him, and how beautiful his voice is and how it’s his favourite out of the vocal line,,, yoongi supports him so much,,,

INFP functions in a nutshell
  • Fi: I want to MATTER in this world, I want to be my own inspiration, I need to know that what I've accomplished is in line with my real, authentic self
  • Ne: okay but what is that inner authentic self, hold on lemme just try to be 32549632 different people at once and work towards as many goals as possible
  • Si: idk I get kinda scared when I think about all these possibilities, I'd rather just do the same thing I've been doing for the past few years bc it feels comfortable
  • Te: YOU GUYS ALL SUCK, YOU'RE NOT EVEN DOING ANYTHING. NOW I AM GONNA CLEAN THE SHIT OUT OF THIS ROOM AND FEEL GREAT ABOUT IT

anonymous asked:

Haven't made a request in a hot minute, damn. Okay so idk about anyone else, but lately my life has consisted of a lot of getting back on my feet and drowning in all the self care in the world because winter is a bitch on people with depression. How would the boys react to at least a seasonally depressed SO? I know they'd want to help, that's what they do, but they've probably never dealt with that themselves, where their greatest accomplishment of the day was a taking a shower/eating real food.

I’m somewhat the same way, it’s really sporatic and I have to force myself to do things, sorry that you have to deal with that darling…

LEONARDO
He doesn’t understand it that much, but he does his best to help you out.
This means helping you out of bed, making you eat breakfast and giving you water.
He stays out of your way when you feel the need to be alone.
When you’re feeling anxious, he lets you fiddle with his fingers, or the straps on his chest. He’ll pet your head soothingly until you fall asleep.

RAPHAEL
He turns into quite the gentle giant.
He’s by your side every time you start feeling really bad, and he’ll lay with you so you can fall asleep. [Because you can’t sleep soundly without him]

He’ll bring you everywhere he goes around the house, unless you’re asleep, to keep you on your feet and busy.

MIKEY
Like Raph, he doesn’t try to understand right away, he does his best to keep you going. He does ask questions about the problem, but mostly he just tries to keep you engaged with questions and cooking.

By the time Mikey goes home, you’ll have two batches of cookies on the table, three pies on the stove and one 3 tier cake on the counter.
And a giant mess, due to the flour fight you started with him.

DONATELLO
Asks a lot of questions, but not big ones. Like Mikey, he just has you answer small questions and keeps your mind working. Though, once or twice he panics because this has been your fourth nap in 8 hours and he puts on music and waltzes with you clumsily. It’s cute and a tiny bit awkward as you keep stepping on his feet.

After all this he still sticks around, even all winter when he learns its seasonal. He barely spends any time away from you, and you’ve had to force him to go.visit his actual house sometimes.

anonymous asked:

you got any portfolio tips for someone applying to art school? (kcai is high on the list for me so i thought you'd be the best person to ask)

INTERESTINGLY, that very fact might be the exact reason I’m not the best person to ask…. KCAI is a fine school, but lemme’ just be perfectly honest for a second and tell you that it’s not difficult to get accepted there.  Even if they don’t accept you, they will likely tell you exactly what they’d like to see from your portfolio.  For instance one of my buddies in animation had transferred in and applied with a photography portfolio… she didn’t really have a drawing portfolio to show them, but she wanted to learn and work in CG, so she just kinda had to make a case for herself and that was that. 

A school like, idk, CalArts, is considerably more difficult to get into, and so I’m not exactly sure what kind of portfolio they want to see.  What I would say though, is to include the art that best defines and summarizes YOU, or YOU’RE GOALS.  Art that’s an indicator of your PASSION, and what you want to ACCOMPLISH.  It’s not a bad idea to include a variety of studies/life drawings and stuff like that… those will help show that  you’re well-rounded.  But make sure to include what you feel is indicative of “your work”. 

I had a portfolio review with someone (from KCAI) before I applied, and I was just putting all sorts of things in there to showcase my different ABILITIES…  I put in some really well-rendered fanart… and then like, a simple, limited-pallet doodle I had done in MSpaint of some of my characters…. and she couldn’t have cared less about the well-rendered fanart.  Instead, she asked me to talk about the characters in the MSpaint doodle.  She said they were more interested in giving students a space to grow and develop their ideas, and I thought that was really cool. 

I have heard similar stories from people applying to CalArts (Jorge Gutierrez got rejected a couple times too, ‘cause he was putting together a what he THOUGHT they wanted to see.  They’d seen some of his more personal stuff–the super mexican-y stuff–and said they were more interested in that.), SO I mean… again, I can’t speak for all art schools, but from what I can tell anyway, there seems to be a bit of a pattern.  Put together a portfolio that speaks to you and what you wanna’ do!

Good luck dude!

C: I’m beginning to feel quite depressed in university. I am feeling very worried about my career and my accomplishments. I have two years left and I don’t know what I am doing, I entered this major to please my mom when she doesn’t even care about me. I can’t transfer because the major I am in is hard, therefore my GPA is low and most faculty transfers need high GPA’s. I don’t want to continue wasting my student loan for a major which is a dead end and has no work in today’s society, but idk.

Some advice for college freshman*

because I know a lot of people are starting class tomorrow and next week

*some of these can be used in high school/middle school too

  • Show up to class. This is the most important thing to do. Some professors might say that attendance isn’t mandatory and only care if you show up for tests or just turn in papers, but actually showing up to class helps. Even if it’s a few days a week, even if you fall asleep during class, just being somewhat present will help you because the instructor will see you as an actual real person and not just another name on a roster and take your presence in their classroom into account while grading. Also, you’ll pick up on what’s most likely to be on the exams and make studying a hell of a lot easier.
  • Eat breakfast. You know the saying. Just eat something. A piece of fruit, a granola bar, a cold poptart. Whatever. Please, just put something in that stomach.
  • Bring a sweater. Even if the weather outside is warm and sunny, stuff a sweater into your bag or something because some classrooms can be as cold as morgues and you don’t want to be shivering while trying to take notes.
  • Get a real agenda. Yes, I know, your phone is very convenient; but actually physically writing things down makes them stick in your memory. You can get pocket agendas for just a couple dollars pretty much everywhere.
  • Rent your textbooks. Seriously, it’s cheaper than buying them. Not all textbooks are available to rent, but most of them are. If you do buy them, try to keep them in the best condition as possible (no real external damage, minimal notes) so you can sell it back to the school bookstore and get a percentage of your money back.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions. The only way you can ask a stupid question is if you ask about something that has absolutely nothing to do with what’s being taught/discussed in class. If you’re shy or anxious about speaking in public, write your question down and approach the instructor after class or visit them during their office hours. You’re not bothering them, they’re used to it.
  • Visit during office hours. Don’t go and visit the first day or even the first week. Wait until everyone gets into the groove of things and you’ve figured out which instructor you might feel more comfortable talking to, and then go and visit. Ask about the lessons, about the reading material. If you don’t know what to say, just say “I don’t know what to talk to you about.” They’ll know where to go from there because, again, they’re used to it.
  • Bring a water bottle and a snack. Running up and down stairs, across campus, or just exerting your brain power can be taxing. Stick a snack in your book bag. An apple, a banana, trail mix, a fucking Snickers bar. Whatever. Your brain doesn’t just feed on knowledge, it needs water and nutrients.
  • Parking. If you don’t live on campus and drive yourself there, here is a trip to finding a good spot - either show up super early or try to get there when other classes let out. Let’s say classes are 50 minutes long and start at the top of the hour. Drive into the parking lot about 5 minutes before classes let out and just catch the people leaving and get their previously occupied spots. 
  • Going to the bathroom. You don’t have to raise your hand to go to the bathroom. Yeah, this isn’t “advice” but it’s something no one mentions for some weird reason and inevitably some poor incoming freshman does it and, well, now it doesn’t have to be you.
  • Show up to class. I seriously cannot stress this enough. Even if you’re dead tired, even if you didn’t sleep, or are still kind of hungover, or all you want to do is fall into a deep black void; just drag your ass out of bed and just sit there. Stare at the wall. Doodle. At least you got up and accomplished one small task that day.

I hope everyone has a great first day! I know you’re going to do your best to kick some serious ass this year!

gym class is the worst like wtf. im not someone who thinks we should have no phy ed requirements, because being healthy is important, but i think the whole gym class thing around american (as well as other countries) high schools and middle schools needs to have a major renovation. its really sad that people are terrified of going to this class..whether they’re afraid to undress in front of others, uncomfortable with swimming around half naked with both sexes, or are embarrassed with their athletic ability. even if you do enjoy it, it has its cons for everyone. gym class shouldn’t be something students are afraid of but a lot of us are. when we are scared and anxious for these 50 minutes, how is that going to help us be physically active? yes, there are people who enjoy it perfectly the way it is and thats great but there’s so many others who do not. at my school, we have this thing called ‘flex’. basically its an extra class that we have on tuesdays and wednesdays. we get to choose a new flex class every few weeks. i think gym class for high schoolers and maybe middle schoolers should be like that. every few weeks, students can choose a new 'gym flex’..like, they can choose what they want to do for gym. something they like and feel comfortable with, so they enjoy it and are happy and are actually accomplishing things. like, students may be able to choose from things like yoga, team sports, or something simpler like walking/running/jogging. and they can set personal fitness goals. idk just a thought sorry for the rant

I truly wish I had the ability to see accomplishments of people I know and not immediately hate myself for my shortcomings even if they’re doing something completely unrelated to what I want to achieve. like I genuinely can’t go on my facebook newsfeed and see what people are up to because I feel like shit afterwards for not doing enough which I know isn’t true but still

Kanny *snorts*

Nanny Kevin drabble:

This is all thanks to @rivela thank them for this… thing.

This is my second drabble thingy and it’s all in one day idk what I have today. Just decided to write my stupid mind stories down.

Promt: You and Sami just wanted a night for the two of you so you needed a nanny but Kevin was being Kevin so he didn’t exactly make it easy on you.
Warning: none. Not ever swearing ARE YOU PROUD OF ME! You don’t know how hard it was to write Kevin without swearing.

You and Sami were planning on going on a date which is a hard thing to accomplish with a 3 year old baby boy who clung to one of you at every possible moment. You loved Eddie to death but he didn’t make it easy on you but Kevin being the sweetheart he is reluctantly agreed to take in Eddie for a night so you and Sami could enjoy your night. You drove over to Kevin’s place grabbed Eddie’s little night bag and knocked on the door of Kevin’s house. As he opened the door Eddie immediately ran by Kevin screaming “he seems to already be exited about tonight” you said looking up at the already annoyed face of your husband’s best friend “why did I agree to this again” he said in a tired tone as he grabbed Eddie’s night bag from your hands “because you love us dearly” you said in a sarcastic tone looking at Kevin mockingly “do I love you guys? I remember beating up your husband, more than once may I add” you looked at him with a ginormous smile “aw but we forgive you for it” you said wile holding his arm in a helpful way “oh goddamn it Y/N I hate both of you and your stupid un resistible smiles. Go have fun with Sami I’ll suffer in this house with 3 kids” he said. Then he gave you a kiss on the forehead as you just smiled at him thankfully.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS. I SAID BLAME RIV ON THIS.

remember Iris’ highlights in season one? wow

like not bad wow she still looked amazing, because Candice is stunning, but I was thinking a while ago about how both Barry and Iris look younger in the pilot and how part of that is just grant and Candice aging but part of it is like wardrobe and stuff

and I think Iris’ hair has to do with that. like the hair color she has now is more ‘grown up’, I guess.

because back in season one Iris was more like pretty/beautiful instead of beautiful/beautiful like she was definitely gorgeous but the type of beautiful was different you know what I mean?

and it makes sense bc Iris has changed a lot over the seasons. like she’s faced some serious losses (her mom, eddie) and she met her brother Wally

but beyond even that she’s found a sense of purpose? like she found out what she wants to do with her life. how important journalism has become to her kind of shows how she’s grown from a student who wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with her life to an accomplished reporter.

and we know she’s always wanted to help people (originally through being a cop) and now she’s doing that with team flash

idk Iris has grown a lot and I don’t think people talk about it a lot. esp in the context of westallen

I mean, we know she’s always had feelings for Barry, and she never had any serious relationships except for when he wasn’t around, she would ditch dates for him at the drop of a hat (cough cough pilot) but she never even considered that she had feelings for him

why? lazy writing? prob- maybe, but we also know Iris barely knew what she wanted in other aspects of her life either. she was figuring her life out- the weird, nebulous parts- so why would she go back and revisit the aspects of her life she felt were rock solid? Barry was always her best friend that’s just the way it was.

I also think that’s why she was with Eddie. because he asked her out, and she enjoyed their date, and the rest of her life was so complicated that she didn’t mind letting this go the way it was 'supposed to’ even if she didn’t love Eddie the way she loved Barry

wow that got out of hand quickly

I love Iris Ann west

ok bye
