it might be lunch

The 'No Excuses' Study System to Get That A

I  School Days  1. Show up to class a little early. It’ll give you time to set up, read over some old notes, put your water bottle/thermos on your desk, fill out your planner if you couldn’t in the previous period(s), check your planner to see if you have something on that day etc. 2. Sit in the front or second row. I’m serious, you will definitely benefit. Write detailed class notes. Pick whatever system works for you. I usually write my titles in red pen, notes in black pen, underline points that are repeated/emphasised, highlight keywords at home 3. If you have time at school, do as much homework as you can. If you know you have commitments that day, please for the love of your education do your homework at lunch. I know you might feel awkward, but your friends will understand.  4. When you get home, first list down all the homework received that day on a q card (cross off as you go). Then write the same tasks in your bullet journal, but as a daily spread. Use stayfocusd or self control for mac + leave phone in a different room. FINISH ALL OF YOUR HOMEWORK. If for some reason you couldn’t complete a homework task, write it on a sticky note and place it on your wall. After homework is done, write your revision notes (flashcard the info as well). Place the notes in your accordion folder/binder. If you have some loose sheets at any point, place them in a ‘To Be Filed’ box. Sort that out when you’re packing your bag for the next day. 5. Go through the flashcards made that day and the flashcards made on the previous days.  List out all assignments/assessments on another q card with their due dates. This will come in handy later. 6. Pack your bag the night before. Remember your accordion folder + make sure your ‘To Be Filed’ box is empty. Put water bottle in the fridge and make meals for the next day. 7. The next day, wake up early, complete any unfinished homework, go through flashcards again, read through revision notes, make lunch for the day, put laptop in bag, put food + water in bag, exercise (esp if you have commitments after school), shower, change, blah blah blah. Only do this if your schedule is packed, and in my case, this is a must. II  Weekends 1. On Friday nights, first off, do homework. You will thank yourself for it. Whip out that list of assessments/assignments and allocate half days to knock off at least two of these little assholes. Work ahead, you will feel much better. 2. Do your readings. For English, knock off some wider reading novels, for HSIE, knock off some textbook unit readings (two units ahead), for science, knock off some more textbook readings. Write summaries of each page. Type these summaries. Print these summaries. Place in accordion folder/binder. Flashcard the info. Spend like half a day doing this lmao. 3. Spend 1-2 hours going through the flashcards you made that week for each subject. This counts as studying my friend.  III Weekends When You Actually Have Assessments  1. Due to your working ahead, homework completion and readings, you shouldn’t be panicking too much. Get those revision notes and slot in the textbook readings notes. Highlight, annotate, read aloud, go through flashcards and get someone to test you on the content. Make sure you know all terms, formulae, key concepts, vocabulary etc etc 2. As for assignments, again due to your working ahead just print them out and heavily edit those little asshats. Then type the edits into the doc. Repeat this process four times. Then get someone to read it. Make sure all your assignments are on your USB + email them to yourself because you never fucking know tbh.  3. You’ll probs have to sacrifice your reading time but that’s chill because the teacher/prof will probably be focusing on prepping you for the actual assessment + you gotta do what you gotta do. SUMMARY Seriously, just do your homework the day you receive it, write revision notes, do your readings, write notes on those readings, make flashcards, knock out assignments as soon as you know they actually exist, read every wider reading novel (analyse these novels), read your required readings (analyse this too), go over flashcards every morning/afternoon, make use of spare time in class, do homework at lunch if needed, stick to your schedule, buy coffee/hot chocolate in the mornings and put it in a thermos, keep a necessities pouch in your bag, keep your P.E shoes in your locker, use a planner, track your spending, wash your hair, brush your hair, go to commitments, attend school events, attend events you’re invited to, go shopping, watch movies, be kind to yourself, take bubble baths, light candles, listen to music, SLEEP, get that A and most importantly be proud of yourself. 

  • friend: please stop talking about dad might. izuku's dad is still alive and married to inko
  • me: *cLUTCHES DAD-MIGHT HEADCANONS/MIGHTY-FAMILY CONTENT CLOSER* NEVER

holy shit imagine dan and phil as high school students and dan’s kinda sad and hates romance and everyone at that school and phil is in love with him and bothers him constantly and is always flirting with him and trying to make him smile and finally he’s just like “ok if i can make you laugh will you go on a date with me” and dan’s just like yeah sure whatever bc he doesn’t think it’ll happen and he just wants phil to leave him alone so every day phil tells him bad puns and jokes in the hallways , at his locker, in pe, on notes in class , and none of it is working but phil is determined but eventually he decides maybe he should just give up and try something else to win dan over so he’s thinking about what that might be while carrying a lunch tray and he rounds a corner and runs straight into dan and dan falls over and the gross food is just everywhere and has completely ruined his sweater and phil freaks out thinking dan will be mad and he’ll never date him now but then dan LAUGHS, like really laughs with his head thrown back and his cheeks going pink and his chest heaving and phil smiles and then they’re both laughing really hard and everyone is looking at them like they are complete idiots because they are and then dan giggles and tugs at a strand of his hair and “i have chocolate milk in my hair, oh my gosh” and phil just grins and points to dan’s mouth and “i think you have some there too, good thing i like chocolate milk” and he drops it bc he doesn’t want to rush anything or make dan uncomfortable but dan grabs him by the shirt and kisses him really hard and they’re just both covered in cafeteria food and making out in the hallway while everyone stares at them i’m honking

Dead animal warning - the vet at work took over the wash room today to defrost some bodies for a training exercise. I forget the animals we have in the freezer here, I need to get them out at some point for some comparison pictures.

Here’s some things I do when I don’t have energy or forget to eat. This is what helps me, so please keep in mind that it might not work for you.

1) Set reminders! I forget lunch the most, so I have a reminder on my phone at around noon each day telling me to eat lunch. Add as many as you need.

2) For days when you can’t get out of bed, keep some nonperishable food in your room if you can. I have a plastic container near my bed so I can easily reach it without getting up.

  • Mine has granola bars, crackers, fruit snacks, fruit cups, trail mix, jerky, and bottled water. It’s not a “normal” meal, but much better than nothing and requires almost no energy.

3) Break down tasks into very small steps. Sometimes mine are as small as “Sit up in bed, move feet onto floor, stand up, walk out of room, walk down hallway, walk to kitchen”. I give myself time in between steps to build up motivation if I need to.

  • Make a checklist if you need to visualize it!

4) Congratulate yourself after completing a difficult step. Even if it’s a simple step, or after every step. It seemed silly to congratulate myself for getting out of bed, but it really helps motivate me to continue.

  • My internal dialogue for this is something like “Okay you did it! That wasn’t too bad. Now you can do the next step too” or “If that was the hardest part, I can do this”

5) I go to @lowspoonsgourmet when I don’t know what to make and they organize recipes by how many spoons it requires!

  • @no-more-ramen is another good one and separates recipes into categories like if there’s no chopping involved or if it makes leftovers

I think that’s it? I might add to this if I think of more. I hope this was helpful!

When you’re five, you dream of love as a fairy tale and play it out with your barbies and anticipate the day you finally love someone as much as your parents love each other.
When you’re 10, you have your first crush. You might play tag with him on the playground at school, he might give you his favourite snack from his lunch box. Then one day, you’ll see him chasing some other girl around the playground, and you’ll get your first, small taste of the harsh backlash of love.
Then you turn 16 and you get your first boyfriend.
He’s everything you ever could have imagined and makes you feel everything you ever dreamed love would consist of.
Finally, and finally, you fall in love for the first time. You fall in love harder and much more faster than you should’ve, at levels too dangerous for a 16 year old.
He makes every one of your fears, insecurities and haunting thoughts disappear with the slightest touch of a kiss.
He makes everything in the world, seem worth it.
And when he leaves, it’ll rip through you like a tidal wave of a thousand knives plummeting right through your chest.
For the next three weeks, you’ll stay in bed, losing weight, time and sleep as you stare at the ceiling with unwashed hair, sore muscles, burning eyes and hardly any energy to take another breath. You’ve eaten nothing, yet still feel as though you’re going to throw up.
You’re mother yells at you to get up and live again, only to go back to her room and cry into your dads shoulders because seeing your broken soul behind your eyes when you stared back at her just crushed her from the inside out.
You’ll get out of bed eventually, only to live the rest in an empty, tired daze. Just waiting for the day, you can fall in love again just to feel something.
Even though you swore you’d never love again, you knew you were lying.
—  Excerpt from a book I’ll never write (M.R)
The world we know is dwarfed by the worlds we don’t. Why not explore them all? Being out there in the wilderness, you have no idea what’ll happen, really. It could be just you and this gorgeous night sky, or maybe you are surfing and some big ass wave comes at you, and if you don’t ride that sucker, it’ll put you under and have you for lunch, or you might turn a corner on a hike and there’s some beautiful deer and her little fawn– now that has meaning, all of those things, and I need more of that and less of trying to make money so I can pay bills to live in a way I just don’t care about anymore.

    • (speaking of sleep–did you know? he doesn’t really get much of it! and will often resort to taking twenty minute power naps in order to make it through the day / night. someone needs to just nap with him)
    • he might quickly fix lunch for you and him before he leaves for work!
      • regardless of if you’re still sleeping or not, he never leaves the house without kissing your forehead!! (at this point, he kinda feels it’s a good luck charm, y’know? like he won’t have a good day unless he gets smooches from you)
    • you have issues getting up in the morning and you need to wake up early? george is pretty patient–he’s willing to go back and forth with you for a while until you cede and get up to eat some breakfast with him!! he don’t let you wake up late, don’t worry!
  • i don’t recommend taking a shower with him because he always has it really cold?? and then will make it burning hot when he’s nearly done,, though, he can be persuaded otherwise!
  • i’ve mentioned this somewhere, i’m sure, but if he’s comfortable enough with you, you might actually hear him sing!! he likes to do this when he tries to bake or cook (tries)
    • he’s better at baking than cooking! though, this doesn’t… mean much
  • i hope you aren’t allergic to dogs!!! ‘cause they just like following him home and he just loves naming them weird things,,,
    • he’s kind of allergic to cats, but he actually loves all animals in general?? if you’re allergic to dogs, then he’s fine with any animal as long as it isn’t a cat ! 
  • on the days he has day offs (he doesn’t really get day offs) he wakes up early, sure, but he prefers to just cuddle you for the day,,,
  • he seldom gets sick, but when he does? he’s surprisingly clingy–he generally just wants to be around you and will be shockingly (at least, for him) obvious about how much he would enjoy it if you, “come back over here, please”.
    • he gets more of a southern accent when he’s tired / sick!

How can people think that Even isn’t into Isak and that he’s just messing with him? 

  1. He invites him outside at the meeting (that maybe he only went to because he thought he might be there after seeing him talk to the girls at lunch)
  2. He invites Isak back to his house to get the ID he probably had all along just to spend time with him (forgetting he had people coming around)
  3. He lies for him in front of his friends.
  4. He interrupts Isak and Emma kissing because he’s obviously jealous (have you seen how quickly he got there and how quickly his face dropped when he saw them together)
  5. He defends gay people when Emma is generalizing.
  6. He makes the first move and doesn’t look too pleased when Noora shows up and ruins it.
  7. He then invites Isak to the pre-game Halloween party which they then both ditch and guess who’s idea that was? FUCKING EVEN’S.
  8. Then he BREAKS INTO someones house just so they can have the perfect first kiss and his face LITERALLY lights up when the fact he’s kisses Isak sinks in.
  9. After he stays in bed the whole day with Isak knowing full well Sonja is mad at him and texting him (everyone seems to have forgotten that bit after the ‘cheating’)  Even would rather be with Isak.
  10. He asks him what his parents would say if they started dating because he wants to take things to the next level.
  11. And the only reason he went back to Sonja is because he thinks he’s doing what’s best for Isak (Or so I believe) because he cares about him that much to stay away despite not actually wanting to.

Even goes out of his way to spend time with Isak, why make all that effort for nothing? If it wasn’t for all that Isak would probably still just be staring at Even from across the room like a love sick puppy.

DUDE HAS CLEARLY FALLEN HARD.

This happened a few months ago and it still bugs me. I have worked in foodservice for almost ten years, everything from fast food to fine dining, so I know that when the rush starts you just get really focused on getting the food out as fast as possible. Well I was at King of Burgers getting some lunch before I had to go to work, right at the start of the lunch rush. I can already tell it might take a while, they were clearly shortstaffed and one woman I assume was a manager called a guy over who was cleaning the dining room to jump on the register. So there was one register open and the manager was pulling food for drive thru/front counter. Well the guy in front of me of me got his food and started to leave when his bag broke and spilled his fries all over the floor. So he went back to the front counter to get more fries. Now, the manager is looking at the screen and steadily bagging food for drive thru, because no dining room orders are ready yet. So her back is turned to the guy. Instead of saying “Excuse me” or otherwise politely trying to get her attention, he just stood there for probably thirty seconds before yelling “HEY”. She turned around like wtf? And he was acting like a giant pissbaby because she didn’t psychically know he was waiting for her to turn around. I felt bad for her because he had such a shitty attitude and I could see her mentally just go “give him what he wants and get him out out of here”, like she WANTED to call him on his rudeness but we all have to pick our battles I guess. Made me glad I never ran the register when I was doing fast food, I don’t know how you guys do it.

Another time I was doing my culinary arts internship at this fine dining restaurant that was in a fancy pants beach resort. I was working pantry station (salads and deserts). A server came back and said she had a customer who was allergic to lettuce, and wanted to know if I could made him a like a cheese and veggie plate. Sure, I said. Some cooks hate shit like that but I don’t mind, as long as it’s not a super detailed request and we’re not slammed. Well the guy SENT IT BACK and she told me he wanted it like a “caprese style” salad. Like? He couldn’t have specified that from the beginning??? And wtf is “caprese style”??? Like dude best I can do is sliced tomatoes and your choice of feta, blue cheese, or parmesan. It’s like some people think we have a whole grocery store in the kitchen.

Another time we had a guy request bearnaise sauce for his steak. Bruh. BRUH. (for those who don’t know bearnaise is basically hollandaise flavored with fresh tarragon [herb] It’s a pain in the ass to make and store for service, which is why unless you went to culinary school or work at a fancy pants beach resort restaurant you’ve probably never heard of it. Also it doesn’t even taste that good honestly). OKAY. I will grant that it was not busy and we certainly had time to make him his ~special sauce~ but my dude, the best we can do is straight hollandaise because who even uses tarragon anymore? If it’s not on the menu it’s probably only 50/50 we can actually accommodate your request because we cannot actually fabricate ingredients out of our assholes.

It’s the end of term tomorrow so I have very little work at the moment so I feel like I’m sort of in limbo… I did help out at the maths workshop at lunch though- but I think I might have confused the people I talked to rather than helped them 🤐

You grabbed your purse and double checked to make sure you had everything.

“Okay, so, I’m going to grab some stuff because your werewolf stuff decides to devour everything in sight.” Derek winks at you. You blush and continue. “Then, I’m going to have lunch with the boys. I might bring them back so they can play with Liam. I guess you can train him or something, but be careful. He’s not a teenager anymore, he’s a child.”

Derek nodded and turned to Liam who was watching the TV, glazed eyes, binky in mouth. You nodded at him and walked out the door and to the motorcycle you had bought a while back.

Ex, Why, We

For the Anon who requested 42 with Gibbs “Don’t look now, there’s my ex.”

It wasn’t something you two ever openly talked about together. When you were merely his subordinate you didn’t ever ask because it would be highly inappropriate. Sure DiNozzo made jokes, and you had assumptions, but that was really it. Once you started dated you never brought it up because it was an uncomfortable conversation to have with a new boyfriend. So? All those… past wives? How are they holding him?

Currently you and Gibbs were in a small tea shop downtown enjoying a small lunch break away from your team and some alone time.

“Perks of dating the boss, I don’t get scolded for taking a long lunch break.” You teased, taking a chip from his plate. Gibbs smirked slightly.

“Oh you still would if I weren’t with you, extra trouble actually.” He decided, “Might have to order you to take all future lunch breaks with me and only me, as a punishment of course.”

“Of course.” You nodded in agreement, winking at him and leaning in slightly. You two sat like that for a while, heads bent so you could talk quietly, eating your food, you sipping you tea and Gibbs sipping his coffee. All in all it was a nice little impromptu lunch date.

“We should probably get back soon.” Gibbs warned you, checking his watch and you pouted slightly, “We’ve been on a case all week, can’t we be gone another little bit? No one’s doing much work anyway, it’s Friday.” He shook his head and kissed the back of your hand.

“No, I have to get back and finish some paperwork, talk to Ducky about something.” He warned you, eyes glancing over to the door as someone walked in. You got used to him doing that ages ago. Every time someone entered a room, anywhere, Gibbs took notice. He groaned slightly, ducking his head.

“What?” You asked, frowning and turning you head to try and look but he squeezed your hand making you stop.

“No, no. Don’t look now, there’s my ex wife.” He warned, finishing off the last sip of his coffee.

“What? Really? Which one?” You asked, pulling you hand from his so you could grab a napkin and clean up slightly, “I mean.. Well, you know what I mean.” You shrugged, giving a bashful look.

“Jethro?” Someone asked from behind you and you watched him tense up, face becoming blank as he looked up.

“Diane.” He greeted her dryly, standing up. You swallowed thickly and did the same, grabbing your purse from under the table and turning to face the woman who had been married to your current boyfriend. Define awkward.

“Ah, am I interrupting something?” She asked, eyeing your suspiciously, and you shook your head, looking over at Gibbs.

“No?” You offered.

“No.” He agreed, “We were just getting lunch, and we need to get back to work.” He decided, reaching for and grabbing your hand tightly, making Diane look slightly disgruntled.

“Well it was good seeing you?” She offered and Gibbs merely grunted in response, gently pulling you from the tea shop and walking you in the direction of the car.

“Which one was she?” You asked hesitantly, not sure if right now was a great time to be asking questions, but really, what time was?

“Drained my bank account.”

“Oh.” You nodded slightly and he gave your hand a squeeze.

“Don’t worry about it. We’re not, you’re not her.” He assured and you nodded, giving him a smile, leaning into him again as you walked. He was right, you guys were different.
