idk what to tag this but please help me

Cat owners!! Please help!!

How do you keep your babies from jumping onto the counter?? I am very consistent about not letting them up there and if I see them jump up there I immediately take them off.

Today I got home from class and they had broken into a loaf of bread and a package of tortillas (both my roommates’, which obviously isn’t ideal) and the alcohol bottles on top of our fridge were also knocked around.

I’m obviously worried about the inconvenience to my roommates (they’ve knocked things off the counter and broken them before, plus no one likes their food being eaten) and a little bit the hygiene part of it (not so much though) but I’m also worried about their safety! If they had knocked a bottle off the fridge and stepped their little paws in the broken glass I would’ve been so upset.

Please!! Tips!!! Suggestions!! Advice!! Anything!

How to be a courteous hotel guest

Hello! My name is Claude and I am a Texas cosplayer who also workers as a hotel housekeeper. I haven’t been working in housekeeping for very long but I’ve seen the impact of all sorts of guest and I have to say that Anime/Comic Con attendees are honestly some of the messiest guests and it puts a lot of strain on the housekeeping staff. Did you know we are warned in advance about you guys? I even have horror stories about con guest. This job is very physically demanding and we’re under a lot of pressure to meet our room cleaning times. Below are some tips about being a more helpful and respectful guest. These are only a suggestion. Not rules. Courtesy is a choice.

1.) Before leaving don’t make the bed. We understand you mean well, but all sheets need to be washed and therefore the beds stripped. The best way to leave the bed? Place all the sheets on top of the bed and remove the pillowcases from the pillows. You can leave them bunched up, that’s fine.

2.) Place all your trash into trash bags, tie it up, and leave the trash next to the door before leaving.That way we can just toss it in the trash cart and move on. Leave anything that we can vacuum. You can also leave the dirty towels next to the door before leaving.

3.) Please check all the drawers, cabinets, and closets to make sure you have all your things. Anything found will be placed into lost and found for 90 days. If you’ve left something, just call the hotel and tell them what you’ve lost and in what room.

4.) If you place a DND sign on your door we CANNOT ENTER at all. We mark it down and move on. If you later remove it and decide that you want service call the front desk and let them know because housekeeping usually end up leaving anywhere from 3pm-5pm.

5.) When housekeeping refreshes your room we make the bed, refill amenities, place fresh towels, take out trash, and do a quick wipedown. Don’t want your bed made? Need extra amenities? Need extra trash bags? Etc? Let us know! We leave notepads and pens in every room and you can write down any instructions for us. Ex: “No need to make the bed, just fresh towels and extra shampoos please.” “Extra trash bags and bath towels please, no more shampoos please.”

6.) Housekeeping cannot make the beds when you have personal belongings on the bed. Simple things like clothes and towels we move while making the bed then put back but anything else we DO NOT TOUCH. Laptops, jewels, suitcases, etc. Please keep this in mind if you want your bed made.

7.) Please do not leave your hair curlers and straighteners plugged in the bathroom. Guest always leave them connected usually next to the sink with water all over and it’s a safety hazard. Housekeeping will usually unplug them but I, personally, fear that maybe one day we won’t reach the room in time.

8.) If a hotel is Pet friendly, you still have to let the hotel know that you are bringing a furry friend along. We need to know what rooms need the pet treatment. What if the next guest is allergic and we weren’t notified about the previous guest?

9.) Try and bring some supplies to clean up after your pet. We’ve had guest allow their pets to pee and poop on the carpets and it not only affects the housekeeping staff but maintenance staff as well.

10.) Most hotels are non-smoking and we ask that you please respect that. We are trained to find out if a guest has been smoking and when we catch it, you get a $250 charge. Don’t risk it!! There are smoking areas that you can ask about.

11.) Have left over alcohol that you can’t take with you when you leave? You don’t have to throw it away. It’s very common for guest to leave them as a tip for housekeeping staff.

12.) Yes! You can tip housekeeping! It’s not required. But we constantly get tips and little notes to thank us for our work and we deeply appriciate it. (I actually have all my thank you notes!) How much you tip is up to you. Ive gotten anywhere from change to 25$.

13.) If you’re sick (like influenza, strep throat, cold, etc.) let the hotel staff know. That way we can notify the housekeepers to take extra precautions. (mask, gloves, etc) and provide a deeper clean. (I actually got Influenza B and ended up in the hospital from this one!)

14.) You don’t have to leave your room if housekeeping comes by to refresh it.  You can stay and tell us how to make your stay more comfortable. Plus, we appreciate the conversation.

15.) Please notify ANY of the hotel staff when you encounter a problem. (bedbugs, clogged toilet, broken lamps, etc) We are committed to make your stay as perfect as possible and can be reached at anytime for help.

16.) If you throw up or bleed (excessively)  in the room please notify us as soon as possible and we can have maintenance come clean up. Please do not leave it for us to clean until after your stay. It causes stains that won’t come out and a deeply embedded smell in the room.

17.) Things you can ask for that guest don’t usually know about (can vary by hotel. Some hotels require purchase.): cribs, extra blankets, shower caps, slippers, toothpaste, toothbrush, tampons, pads, razors.

That’s about all I can think of so far. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about how to be a more courteous guest or anything about hotel service. I’ll be happy to help to the best of my ability. I cant wait to see you all at San Japan! :)

Any questions?

It’s 1am and I don’t know why I did this

As a person I understand the appeal of drinking out of a whole skull but as an archaeologist I don’t approve of the way people think it’s done (when it’s actually done)

Also. When you put a skull on a shelf. That jaw. It’s gon fall. You better take it off or glue it or smth bc it’s going to fall

Historically speaking, when we find trophy skulls, the jaw is usually missing, or it has been especially taken care of to help it stay in place. When it’s missing, sometimes it’s been snatched off the head while the skin and meat was still there, sometimes it’s because it fell after the skin decomposed

Either way my friends told me to stop telling stories like that at parties

she wasn’t interested in telling
other people’s f u t u r e s
 she was interested in going out
and finding h e r own

 lee ji eun as b l u e  s a r g e n t — the raven cycle

1. frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment.

Did you know that when you
push someone so far off a ledge,
their heart stops beating for minutes at a time
because they’re scared you’re gonna
push them all the way off?

Did you know that when
you decide you’re not going to push them
all the way off that ledge,
they’re not going to want to stay with you
any longer; they’re not going to want to
stick around to see if the next time,
you will push too far?

I push people so far away from me,
arms length isn’t in my vocabulary.
This is bodies of water worth away;
the Pacific Ocean has nothing on me—
I’ll push people so far,
they won’t be able to see my face but
when they finally decide they need to leave,
I will swim the length of the ocean to
pull them back to me.

Did you know that it doesn’t matter
if you swim oceans worth of water
to make it back to the person you don’t want to lose
because you almost killed them when you
teased them, holding them off
that ledge; do you realize that
they aren’t going to want
to stay, no matter how much you wheeze
from the trek to and from where
you left them?

2. A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation.

Touch me on the shoulder and
push my hair behind my ear and
whisper to me that you love me and
tell me I’m beautiful and that you
need me and need me and need me and
I will never stop loving every inch of you

UNTIL

one morning you wake up and you
leave too early or you
forget to say goodbye or
you just exist as you are but
don’t remind me that I’m okay and
I decide that you’ve begun to hate me
and in turn I hate you right back

UNTIL

I remember that I love you and
if you leave me I will never be able to breathe again and
I love you and I love you and I love you and
it feels like you’re ignoring me and
I just want you to love me

UNTIL

I realize I have to leave you before
you leave me; and you, inevitably, will leave me so
I decide you no longer mean a thing.

3. Identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self.

Laugh and I’ll laugh with you,
cry and I’ll cry too.

Say something cute and I will
say it again later when you’re not there and
tell me your favorite color and
it will be my favorite color too.

Not only will it be my favorite color but
I’ll paint it on my apartment walls and
I’ll buy a whole new wardrobe with nothing
but clothes that color and
tell me that you love high heels and
I’ll buy 60 pairs and when you dye your hair,
suddenly I’ll do my hair the same way.

Laugh and I’ll laugh too,
cry and I’ll cry too.

Hate someone and I’ll hate that person with you and
love a celebrity and I’ll love her too and
I’ll paste her posters all over my apartment walls and
I’ll watch all her movies and
listen to all her music and

you’re gonna think we are just
/ so, so alike / when really,

you make a move and I mimick you;
you make a move and I say JINX in my head
as if we moved at the same time and
you’ll owe me a soda even though really
I owe you a personality but
I don’t have the capacity to afford one.

4. Impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging.

When I drive to therapy I am running late
because I am always running late and
I drive my car too close to the side where
the parked cars sleep for the night
and I hit a side mirror with my own and
drive away so fast I drive through a stop sign
right next to a preschool and
at therapy she asks me why I am being
so reckless and impulsive and I say,
“What are you talking about?” because
I can’t understand that my behavior
is at all impulsive
and reckless.

I don’t eat all day because I want control until
night comes and I eat and
I eat and I eat and
I eat
and the toilet bowl calls out to me and
I vomit until the veins in my eyes
streak red lines in their white and
I look like the monster that I feel I am.

5. Recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, or threats, or self- mutilating­ behavior.

In a moment of absolute and utter hopelessness I think to myself,
“If I kill myself she will feel so fucking bad,”
and I swallow bottles of pills because
I think I want to die and I also want
the people who did me wrong to feel
the same ache that I have in my chest because of
what they did to my heart.

I am angry with my friend and she
thinks that I will cope the same as any
normal person and I go home / after our / fight / and /
I take a blade / to the soft flesh of my wrists ///
and slice ////// until the bathtub fills with red
and /// I think to myself,
“that will fucking show her.” ////
(I don’t tell her what I did. I want her
to know but the pain calms the anger;
the blood is enough.)

6. Affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood

I sit in my apartment with Friends
playing on the TV and I laugh along
with the annoying laugh track and then
I drop an empty cup on the carpet and
I scream out with rage as if
the cup was filled with acid and
it burned through the carpet and hard floor
even though the fucking cup
was fucking empty.

7. Chronic feelings of emptiness

Do I even have a heart
beating in my chest?
How can I be alive when
I’m nothing more than
an empty shell?

8. Inappropriate, intense anger or difficulty controlling anger

As a teenager, doctors were desperate
to explain away my emotions;
they would say that I was just
an angry girl and that
sometimes kids are angry
and when I punched holes in the walls
and sliced open my skin out of pure rage
it was okay because I was just
The Angry Girl and
it simply didn’t matter what was causing
that severe emotional response.

9. Transient, stress-related paranoid ideation or severe dissociative symptoms.

These are not my hands.

You can’t help me heal
when I don’t
actually exist.

I swear
you can’t see
me when
I’m like this.

Can you see me?
I can’t feel my limbs.

I’m scared. Please,
look at me so I can
know that I exist.

                               Blue’s Japanese FC Masterlist!

                                      ᴀ ʙᴜɴᴄʜ ᴏғ ᴊᴀᴘᴀɴᴇsᴇ ғᴀᴄᴇs ғᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʀᴘ


I generally believe there is a lack of Japanese characters in the rpc and more than often, I see people use Korean FCs for ethnically Japanese characters. Therefore I recently started working on a masterlist of Japanese faceclaims to enable more people to be aware of the Japanese faceclaims out there! It includes trans faces, though there are a small amount I know of so there are not many. Everyone is listed with their family name first, then their given name.

This page is being constantly updated by me as there are definitely a lot more Japanese faces to add. But if you have any suggestions please do message me. This list will not include deceased, retired or under 16 faces. As of writing this, the masterlist contains 500+ faceclaims.

If you are an RPH who uses my masterlist for FC help purposes, please credit us as we worked hard on this.

You can sort the faces by these categories:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Ethnicity (for bi/multi-racial faces)
  • Eye colour 
  • Hair colour
  • Occupation
  • GIF count*
  • RP icon count*
  • My favourites

*includes resources made by everyone! If I missed a resource, feel free to message me and I’ll add it as soon as I can. This is also good because it means you can help create resources for people who have none!

I was inspired by the Vietnamese FC list by thanhpls! Please love and support her masterlist too.

DDOCA 

Gender is unknown, but it is hinted to be a girl by MJ when he asked DDOCA to call him “Oppa”, a term for a female to call their older brothers.

DDOCA is someone who is always following ASTRO and helping the boys film themselves playing around, sneak peaks at what they are doing or simple things like life behind the scenes/official camera.

AROHAs wishes they were DDOCA who is always with ASTRO and playing around with them.

The next installment in the 
“ Nebulous AU PostOp TransMan Jack Zimmermann” Series. 


(again, because it was more fun than drawing
self portrait sketches to document my experience)

(Idk I guess I’ll just try to do a bunch of squats and leg lifts for the next two months or something since I can’t: “lift weights, do pushups, ride a bike, jog, run, or do any other extreme upper body workout” until mid September) 

(Also:
Things I have never been paranoid about before: my nipples.
Things I am now slightly paranoid about: My Nipples)

(Also also. I think part of the reason just about the only sensation i’m getting from my chest right now is MAD ITCHINESS? is the fact that they shaved it and everything is growing back oh my fucking god) 

(I get to SHOWER today for the first time since Monday so that’s super exciting and I’m going to go do that. Boy you guys have gotta help me out Idk what kinda response I’m gonna get posting this at 9:44 on a Sunday morning)

looking for a place to stay in seattle

hey, atm i have to live with my parents because my only source of income is ssi, and it’s making me miserable because of the trauma my family (but especially my dad) has caused me my entire life, so i really want to get out of here asap!

i can pay ~$500/mo in rent/utilities/etc., does anyone maybe have a room available for a mixed autistic lesbian + 2 cats somewhere in seattle (or that general area, bellevue, renton, redmond, tacoma, etc. could all work potentially)?

please message me if you know of anything that could help! tysm

note: i absolutely do not want to live with men (this includes transmasculine people)

Hello fellow SONE!

The 10th anniversary of our girls is coming up and I had already decided that I’m going to go off this comeback and buy more copies than I need, and because I know that it’s tough for some people to afford to buy the albums, I want those people to have a chance at getting it on such a special and important occasion for both our girls and us SONE. I know I can’t make everyone happy but at least I’ll try to make a few.

  • tag it with sooyyounggiveaway (phew that’s a big tag);
  • only one gifset per user - no sideblogs;
  • *

Drawing/Fan art:

  • whether it’s in a traditional technique or digital you’re free to do it as you find best fitting for yourself - just make sure it fits the theme;
  • only one drawing per person;
  • *

Video editing:

  • make sure the video is no longer than 2 minutes;

  • only one video per person;
  • *

*MANDATORY:

INTRODUCING: the fool’s fc directory!

this is a personal fc directory and more for my moments of “okay so which fc do i use, i remember loving one but who were they again…?” but i thought this would be useful to people for some quick fc ideas ( this is by no means a definitive list, and my sorting of ethnicities may not be perfect – if there’s anything i should amend/change, please let me know!! )

there’s a good mix of fc’s in their teens-twenties-thirties, lots of poc, some underused whites. not all of my favourites are up there yet, but the directory is always growing!

help I love Mazikeen what do I do.

I mean. To be honest, I loved her since she showed in The Sandman for the first time, solely for her super cool design,and then in the Lucifer comic, she’s so cool, and then the tv adaptation showed up and I thought “hmmm she seems to be a totally different character oh well, well se how it’ll turn out” but now I’m “my queen please step on me”.
