if you need my reasoning then i will give it

Please keep me in your prayers or thoughts if you would?
I have an opportunity to move out of my parent’s house and into an apartment with my best friend, another close friend and one other girl. My therapist thinks it’s a great idea and it would be a really nice setup- we seem well suited temperamentally, the rent is very reasonable with 4 of us, and it would give me some independence and much needed distance from my mother.
The only thing is that with my current job finances would be very tight and also just… ANXIETY.
Please just pray that I can have right judgement and peace in my decisions and that I can get a good job this summer because that would make a huge difference for me. But mostly the mental peace would be great. Thanks y'all for reading :)

can you believe i actually reached 1.2k followers ?? lol this could be really cheesy but it won’t be,, deal with it i’m not in the mood sorry buuut what more than to say that i really love and appreciate each one of y’all and the support you give me whenever i need it but most important thanks for not unfollowing me even when i annoy everyone with my rambling posts in my bad days…

ANYWAYS i’m doing follower moodboards so here’s what you gotta do if you want one:

  • reblog this post so more people know that i’m doing this
  • you must be following me (they’re called follower moodboards for a reason lol)
  • send me an ask with what you want me to base your moodboard on !! (it can be your face tag, fave colors, actors/youtubers/whatevs, your aesthetic, a song, a combination of the previous mentioned things… anything !! )
  • you could also send me song recs hmmm just sayin

i’ll tag this as michelle does follower moodboards just as last time so you can also look at that tag to see how they are !!

What does happiness mean to you?

The ephemeral sensation that everything around you is as it was always supposed to be, and that nothing that relates to you could ever be any better, even if just for a mere instant. Because we humans are defined by our needs, desires, yearnings and aspirations, It’s not something that is meant to last, and so we spend most of our living time chasing it. It’s just the nature of things.

As depression peers over my shoulder, I fear that it will make me forget how to feel it forever, and by doing it, remove my reasons for living. Before that can happen, and since you ask, allow me to share a scene that I associate with many of my most recent moments of happiness. 

I’m really so fortunate to be able to share a life with someone that always did their best to give me so many moments of happiness. Thank you so much, Jackie - and I hope to be able to keep on bringing you happiness as well, for as long as we’re together. I mean, you sure seem to enjoy those foot rubs! ;)

//I hope no one faults me for this, but please keep in mind that Batch Requests are usually based around specific themes. If I cannot shorten your request down to a specific theme, then I have to make it “requested prompts” instead, eliminating the 8 prompts down to a 4 prompts as per usual.

As an example, if you send in:

“A psychic awakens as a different person every night and somehow meets their love interest.”

I cannot shorten it down to a specific theme. Your best hope is sending it in as a normal request, so I can give you what you need.

If you send in:

“Drama occurs between three friends while on a road trip.”

I can shorten this down to “dramatic road trip”.

This is to keep the titles of the Batch Requests short- if I do it any other way, my skin crawls for some reason. 

I’ve recently introduced this as a new rule, which I’ve now put in my FAQ and About. However, because it’s a new rule and people more than likely weren’t aware of it (I can’t remember mentioning it, but I might have), I will get to those I have in my ask, they might just not appear as anything remotely close to what you’ve asked for. 

I hope this is understandable! 

I ignored all the ‘red flags’ when I was with you. (You know something isn’t right when you’re apologising as much as you’re saying 'I love you’.) It wasn’t that I didn’t see all the red flags. I was just so in love that every time a red flag appeared, I would angrily throw it at the ground.

I kept giving you excuses. Kept trying to rationalize irrational behavior. Kept trying to see the good instead of the truth. I was protecting you, but also, I was protecting myself. I refused to let the truth rip us apart. After all, I was convinced you were my soulmate. We were going to be together in this life and the next.

You gave me just enough to keep me going. You asked me to stay every time I thought of leaving. When you did that I forgot all the reasons I had for leaving. All I needed was one reason to stay.

anonymous asked:

I have to thank you for answering that anon regarding Luci & Chloe's feelings towards each other cos I was going bat-sh*t crazy trying to figure out why the show writers let Chloe go through so much feelings. I mean I couldn't for the love of God understand how she did not talk to Lucifer about their "This is real" moment. I guess your answer answers my questions as well. I just don't want Chloe to think she is another of Luci's flings. Cos the "just friends" hurt big time. ughhhhhh

Yeah, as I have said, both of them are hurt and thinking what they had wasn’t real, for different reasons, and neither of them want to be the first to try to change that. Which is, again, why you need to drop in a plot shakeup and force them out of this place and to confront everything that is going on. From what I’ve seen, Maze gives Lucifer an absolute bollocking in the next episode, literally, for keeping so many secrets, which I need. Lucifer needs to be slapped over the face with his cumulative spiral of bad decisions, and Chloe is as yet under no obligation to give him another chance if he’s trying to “prove” they’re not real. As I said, she still thinks he was married, and has been trying to talk about it at points, but Maze isn’t the most emotionally sensitive or supportive (at least with words, as she gets actions) person to do this with.

So yeah. I want to see how things have shaped up at the end of 2x17, and then I can guess more how they might look going into the finale. Also, Tom said that it was too EARLY for Deckerstar to get together, not that they WOULDN’T. Which is obvious at the amount of issues that both of them are currently faced with, and the amount of things that need to be straightened out, on both their parts, before they can even think of trying again.

anonymous asked:

I feel like I share the intense thirst and longing towards gabe with you so here it goes. I'm thirty one year old wrecked mega depressed piece of shit who's plotting how to off oneself daily but you know what keeps me dragging my miserable life through this gutter and not hanging myself right now? You guessed right. Gabe. The fact that a fictional character gives me more of a reason to live than religion says a lot about my mental fucked-upness but I don't care. Whoa this is dark I'm sorry.

I was writing something for this and I thumbed over my trackpad which took me back a page so I lost what I had typed before. I’m gonna attempt to speed run what I wrote before so hold tight.

Let me tell you you are absolutely not alone in this. Feelings like that are something I’ve been struggling with in my whole twenty five years of life. And like you whatever fictional universe I’ve stuck my nose into ends up being one of the only things to help.

So by all means self indulge in it if that’s what helps you get by cause that’s sure as shit what I do. If you write, write something with it, if you draw, draw something with it. If you don’t do either and don’t feel like picking one of them up, imagination is your best friend.
Hell, sometimes I start up skyrim or anything with character creation and make that character I like or even myself and I’ll get lost in it for as long as I can allow myself and it helps. 

Just makes sure you don’t get so lost in it you start neglecting the things you have to do in life. Cause a) that’s not healthy either and B) you’ll start feeling bad about that too and you definitely don’t want to add on to the list like that. 

Side note: If you have a people you trust and who care about you, absolutely talk to them. Aside from an actual professional to talk to having a support group will help big time.

They’re not always going to have something to say, sure, but getting what you’re feeling off your chest is good for you. And if you’re like me and you’ve got that voice in your head telling you “They don’t want to hear it” kindly tell that voice to fuck off. If it’s someone you can talk to about those things they will absolutely be willing to sit and listen to you.

Sorry if that’s preachy or stuff you’ve already heard but like I said, I’ve been dealing with this my whole life  too and figured maybe something would help in there.

How to deal with losing interest in your language class:

As a student in a higher-level French and who is self-studying two other languages, I know for a fact that taking a foreign language can get stressful and overwhelming. To learn a ton of grammar, humongous amounts of vocab, and to know how a mind in another culture works, it can get super hard sometimes. All that stuff that goes into learning a foreign language can make it super easy to get burnt-out. And we’ve all done it. Trust me. But, it’s okay, my dude. We’ve all been there. It sucks, but you’ll get over it. Here are some tips how: 

i. take your time 

Listen, my dudes, it can be so difficult to learn a foreign language and you should already be proud of yourself for doing so!! Even in a fast-paced class, you should take it slow and make sure you don’t beat yourself over not getting it in perfect time. Language takes practice, and sometimes we don’t get it as fast as we want it. it’s okay. 

ii. ask questions/talk to the professor

Are you totally lost? Tell someone. It could be a classmate, a native speaker you’ve befriended, or your instructor. Either way, I highly recommend you talk to someone if you’re stuck on a specific concept or feel unmotivated. You sometimes need a boost from a study buddy in your target language. 

iii. remember why you’re studying

My go-to method for when I’m having a bad day in French or I’m just not getting something is simple. I simply ask myself: “Why am I doing this?” No reason is not good enough for choosing to learn a specific language. Learning languages has its benefits and even if you just like the sound of it is reason enough to learn it! Trust me, I have no incentive for learning my target language. But I love it, and I refuse to give it up when it gets difficult. 

iv. study on your own 

To be honest, this is super super important anyway. You absolutely NEED to practice a language on your own, whether you feel like it or not. Without some practice, you’re going to feel completely lost in class sometimes. You can have fun with this too: take this time to familiarize yourself with the culture more. Personally, it’s always helpful to watch movies in French or listen to music in Spanish. I learn to enjoy my target language more and to have fun with it!

v. take a break

We all get unmotivated sometimes. Yeah, language learning takes a lot of work, but sometimes it helps to take a step back and refresh a little. Focus on other schoolwork or maybe find something new to occupy your time. Being burnt out on learning a language sucks, I know, but sometimes it’s best to ride the wave a little bit.

@chewbaccafarms asked for pidge in e3 and lance in a2 from this post !!!

An All-Inclusive Guide to Making Your First Year in Practice Not Suck As Much As Wayfaring’s

Hi there, just curious if you’d share what things you were looking for in your first job vs what things you value now, now that you’ve been working out there on your own. Anything that must be in the contract that wasn’t there before (or vice versa)? Tips for future graduating residents?

Yaaaaasssss so many advices. So many things. This ask has been in my inbox for months because I have too many things to say about it and I can’t seem to organize it properly. 

Let’s break it down into 3 sections: 1) What I thought I wanted 2) What I needed and didn’t know to ask/look for 3) What I want now. Here goes.

What I thought I wanted:

  • big dolla$$$
  • super sweet signing bonus
  • moving allowance
  • loan repayment assistance
  • regular 40 hour work schedule
  • nice patients
  • independence / autonomy in decisionmaking
  • ability to practice the way I was trained - with up to date guidelines and procedures and equipment


What I wanted and didn’t know to ask for:

  • Supportive colleagues - In your first year of practice out of residency you lose every ounce of confidence that you gained as a senior resident. You question minor decisions and are constantly afraid of killing people or being sued. It is extra hard to practice in a new town when your partners in practice are not supportive. Sometimes you need someone to lay a fresh set of eyes on a wonky EKG or a weird rash, you know? I didn’t have that option. It made me study harder and somewhat be more cautious and definitely more creative in my practice. But having a colleague to commiserate with at the end of the day or to consult on difficult cases would have been really nice. You don’t have to be BFFs with your colleagues, but they have to be people you can agree/get along with and trust to take care of your patients in your absence.
  • Friends - This sounds obvious, but I moved to a new town that literally has no people anywhere close to my age. Even having one person I knew and could confide in would have been wonderful. One person to go to a movie with or watch a football game with would have been a sanity saver for me. Find a place where you can find other people like you. 
  • A reasonable amount of time off - I got less time off in my first job than I did as a resident. That was unacceptable to me. This would be fine if my practice didn’t act like they were going to go bankrupt if I took an unpaid day or even a half day to go to the doctor, but they did. You need a place where you can take one week off every 3-4 months if possible, even if all that time isn’t paid. Medicine is such a stressful job. Make sure they’re giving you rest time.
  • A non-toxic work environment - I knew going into my job that I was replacing a workaholic and that I was joining a workaholic. What I didn’t realize was that I was also expected to be a workaholic and anything less than killing myself was seen as laziness. Pay attention to the culture at your new job. Ask the docs what they do for fun or to relax and more importantly when the last time was they did that thing. If they don’t have any answers, they’re too busy. 
  • Diversity. This may just be me, but I went into family medicine because I get bored easily. I need variety of patient types and disease types and socioeconomic groups and everything else. I realized quickly in my practice that most of my patients were privately insured elderly white people. As in, the most boring demographic for Wayfaring
  • A Balanced schedule. I figured that when I joined a practice that had been established for 30 years that the workflow kinks would have been worked out and it would run like a well oiled machine. In reality I would have 8 physicals a day and 5 of my most complicated patients in hospital follow ups back to back, all scheduled for just 15 minutes. There has to be balance in the schedule. You have to be able to take a little extra time here and make it up elsewhere. 


What I want now: 

  • fair dolla$$$. In actuality, what’s fair is actually considerably more than what I was making in my first job. I was grossly underpaid, particularly considering this being a rural area where nobody wants to work (typically those jobs are paid much higher). It’s not about the bottom dollar value for me. It’s about compensating me in a way that is comparable to my peers. 
  • Colleagues who can be both friends and mentors. See above. 
  • Good benefits. Two years of no dental or vision sucks when your most expensive problems are dental and vision related. Life insurance and retirement plans aren’t something most 30 year olds think of, but they’re really important, and I didn’t have those to start with. 
  • A flexible schedule. The whole world doesn’t need to fall apart if I need to switch my regular day off or if I need a half day to go to the doctor. 
  • Administrative time. Preferably a full week day, but a half day is great too. I’m happy working 4 10 or 12 hour days a week to have one week day off to catch up on work I’m behind on or get my hair cut and get my taxes done and see my psychiatrist, you know?
  • Knowledgeable and helpful staff. I need staff who don’t perpetuate old wives’ tales and notions like “you need a zpack for that cold”. I need to work with people who will ask if they don’t understand something rather than just make something up and who can help me educate my patients. I need folks who are prompt and who can anticipate some needs. 
  • To not be responsible for other peoples’ paychecks. In private practice, if I take time off or scale back, the practice loses money and thus our staff lose hours or money too. The staff in my first job were horribly underpaid and I don’t like the idea of the entire burden of the practice’s finances hanging on my shoulders. Sign me up for that hospital-owned practice, please.
  • To not have to turn patients away based on payer source. This is a national problem and is definitely not limited to my first job. But my first job wouldn’t let me take Medicaid patients at all. It made it completely impossible for me to build any sort of pediatric or OB practice in our town. I don’t like the idea of turning away a patient because their type of insurance doesn’t pay as well. I want to just treat patients and not have to worry about their payments. Hello, single payer healthcare system. Get on it! Obviously I will still have to worry about whether my patient can afford their meds or whether their insurance will cover their meds, but I won’t have to pick and choose what patients I accept based on their payer source. 
  • To deliver quality, up to date care. To work with people who will back up my evidence-based decisions and not practice based on feelings and patient satisfaction. To work with people who will encourage me to learn more and do new things. 

There you have it folks. A lil summary of what I want, what you might want, and what I’ve learned in these first (almost) 2 years of practice. Here’s to better future jobs for us all!

Legend of Korra Comic
  • Bad Guy: I'm going to do this bad evil thing and threaten the Avatar despite it not working out for anyone in the history of ever
  • Korra: (Walks up to him and slaps him hard in the face) Shut up, no one cares about you. The people want to see me making out with my girlfriend Asami who is the most beautiful woman in the world. We just started a relationship and I don't need any new stress
  • Bad Guy: But I-,
  • Korra: No serious sit down and shut up. I'm going to make out with my girlfriend for three books and then I'm going to beat you, your only purpose is to give this comic book a vague reason that isn't just me and my girlfriend falling in love!

Some things I love individually about each of the kids:

Gaten: His kindness. He is so sweet it’s almost unbelievable and you can just tell he’s the type of person that makes anyone feel welcome.

Caleb: this kid has the best fashion sense and some awesome dance moves but outside of that he is also so supportive and encouraging not just towards people he knows but to everybody

Noah: Noah is the sweetest thing with the best taste in shoes. This guy has the best smile I’ve ever seen and the cutest laugh I’ve ever heard not to mention this guy can rock a bowl cut.

Finn: the actual coolest kid. He has the coolest sense of humor and while he likes to meme and be silly is seriously mature and reasonable.

Millie: she has a way with words if you watch interviews she’s just very amazing at wording things. She also is outgoing and confident. Not to mention this girl can rock the curls

I love these kids equally but for different reasons and yes they’re amazing together but apart they’re just as amazing

Supergirl Season 1 Appreciation Week - Day 2/7 : the moment you fell in love with Kara

The same way I liked Supergirl as a show straight from the first episodes, I also liked Kara Danvers: her sunny attitude, adorable quirks, her strength and unyielding personality. However the episode I truly fell in love with Kara Danvers was the 1x7 “Human for a Day”. This episode showed that Kara isn’t a hero just because she has all these superpowers. She’s a hero because she has the heart of a hero. Kara lost her powers, broke her arm and she’s not bulletproof when she goes and confronts the robber with a gun. Kara does this because she has this want, this need to help people. It’s a very powerful scene and it’s great how Kara’s speech to the gunman overlaps with the speech Cat Grant is giving to the people on National City.

Kara lost her whole world and when she came to Earth, her reason for being here (protecting Kal-El) didn’t exist anymore, so she desperately wants to have a purpose, wants it all to have some meaning and she herself is making it meaningful by helping people. This resonated with me deeply.

actual-snow-white  asked:

I just saw a Facebook video about animal cafes in Japan, like cat cafes and even owl cafes. How do you feel about these? I honestly wonder how well taken care of they are.

My general gut response is to start screaming about the lack of biosafety. Like, there’s a reason animals aren’t allowed in areas that do food preparation - I’m sure you could have a rigorous cleaning schedule and make religiously sure that people who do food prep are really carefully separated from the animal areas but… ehhh…. it just still sounds pretty gross. 

From a behavior standpoint, well-done cat cafes can function like meet-the-cats shelter spaces and do help with adoptions. They need to be well run with attention to giving the cats breaks and making sure they’re not overwhelmed, but they can be good. I haven’t been to any and it’s kind of hard to parse that information from websites (especially non-american ones) so I can’t say either way if that’s something they do. 

Owl cafes are a different matter - the short answer is no, why, stahp. They’re nocturnal predators with no domestication who have no inherent affiliative interest in humanity. Everything about it is wrong, stressful for the animals, and unless they’re restraining their feet and beak somehow just like seriously unsafe for the people who go there. They play into the whole anthropocentric “everything should love humanity so it’s okay for us to assume it’s always okay for us to want to cuddle it” crap that’s been really popular in Japan lately.
