its supposed to look like crap

Mean Astrology: The Mercury Signs

Aries: You think brashly and are quick to judge but shockingly indifferent about all the shit other people have to deal with. You have a childish outlook on things and don’t accept realities around you because you’d rather do whatever you want. You have such destructive tendencies and evvverreyyything is a fight for you. So like, calm down and think it through before you do something, you’re actually pretty smart, but you have like zero common sense.

Taurus Mercury: We get it, you have a lot of opinions and think you’re always right but honestly half the time you’re talking about something literally everyone else has moved on. You’re really not as innovative and edgy as you think, most of your ideas are tired and have already been said by someone else. You’re not the “hot shit” you think you are, no one is copying you or trying to be you. People have similarities to you. Move on from thinking you’re always right and open your mind a little. Christ.

Gemini: You may not advertise it but you write people off if they’re not “good enough” for you. Sure, you’ll keep them around for a while because you like conversations and debates and hearing other sides of things. But you’re just using people as living white noise all while pitying or looking down on them. Also, for saying a lot; you say a whole lot of nothing. Is it like… impossible for you to actually connect with people???? For a person who gets so bored so easily and writes people off for being boring, you’re actually pretty annoying and boring yourself. You’re not the master of everything. Actually? You’re surprisingly one note.

Cancer: Surprising you have some notable people with this mercury sign considering cancer mercuries are literally walking puppets. You are so… easily manipulated! The only time you ever do anything well is when it’s out of spite, you bitter little shits. And everything you do is like.. half-assed or so spread thin it’s not really that impressive (unless, you guessed it, you’re doing it because you’re bitter). You only do projects, learn things, do work if you want to and “feel” like it. But somehow you’re never held accountable? You just blame it on everyone else and act offended and don’t shut up about it for eight years. Just do what you have to do and stop being nasty, ill-meaning hypocrites and for fucks sake. Works not supposed to be fun!

Leo: Hello lying politician? Leo mercury wants its life story back. Yeah you’re funny, you’re cool and have great, well-meaning ideas! But you’re full of shit. You’re fake as fake can be, you really don’t care about the crap you “fight for” it’s allll about how it looks. How it reflects back on you. Like your life’s mission is to brainwash everyone into loving you and your ideas. How you “make real change” but really it’s only for your image or your own little agenda. Just don’t be a lying piece of shit, let yourself be selfless. That’s the only time you’re capable of any actual change.

Virgo: You may come across as having a “bland” or “generic” personality. Yes you too Jennifer Lawrence. However since you’re a sign with a strong duality next to pisces and Gemini, you are also prone to doing outlandish and extremely stupid/dangerous things just to shut off your mind sometimes. What! Are! You! So! Afraid! Of! You don’t have to be in the middle or completely off the map, there’s an in between dummy. You also like to play people and may be secretly self-absorbed/self-serving even though you tirelessly and shamefully work so hard to create a caring and selfless image. It makes sense to you to either serve your own needs primarily or just destroy yourself really fast. You are iconic if you just find a balance. Stop fucking fighting it and using people in the process.

Libra: You guys think you’re soooo unfortunate and make sure to complain about every little wrongdoing done to you or you use it as a source of pride in how you courageously overcame it. Like we get it Portia, your best friend in sixth grade dumped you for a different best friend and you handled it so well, but you need to shut up about it. You’re usually pretty damn lucky people, so you throw a tantrum when things don’t go your way. The worst part about you is you never really say what you think or share your agenda, you just manipulate people instead and hide ANYTHING you did wrong and feign surprise when people find shit on you or you just ignore it and do nothing. It’s shitty, just say what you goddamn mean for once.

Scorpio: Do you genuinely think you are always right??? You never check yourself you always invent ways to justify yourself and explain why what you did wasn’t wrong, but are VERY quick to check others. It’s like your own bad choices have zero effect on you. You can be passive aggressive if you think someone is wrong instead of outright saying it, like saying it will give someone leverage over you. You’re extremely paranoid but you are shockingly clever about hiding it, however that means it’s not other peoples’ fault they didn’t know what was wrong. Your standards for other people are too high and you should maybe try checking yourself against those standards.

Sagittarius: You’re generally pretty open-minded and free-thinking but you need to STOP YOURSELF. You go too far when you think you’re right, and it always ends up making you look stupid. You speak your mind and aren’t afraid to do so but… you get too caught up in the moment and do really stupid shit no matter how smart you are. Often, people will just assume you’re dumb, the fact that you’re smart is always a surprise. It probably has to do with going too far too fast without really explaining your thinking, you just say your opinion and do whatever you want. Sometimes it’s good you go against the grain! You can make some incredible discoveries or do something amazing! But be careful, you are a bit much for the world. Often not in a good way if you don’t control yourself.

Capricorn: You are a smug little bastard who, in mercury, has more of an ego than a Leo. You are so absorbed in your own problems in your own little world and if your world isn’t MEGA important (I’m talking world leader) you have no business playing god. Sometimes you’re honestly only described as embarrassing, you think every move you make is big and important, but if it’s all about you it’s often just petty or mean. The world isn’t a game of chess, it’s real and everyone, not just you, experienced consequences. Stop taking that lightly.

Aquarius: You’re forward-thinking and a leader, but you can be brash and unthinking. You inspire arguments and can play devil’s advocate too much; you may even inspire violence against you. You often need to be distracted in order to focus on something and it comes across like you don’t care. You also tend to take radical stances on things and may not research those stances as thoroughly as you need to and make an ass out of yourself. You are IMPOSSIBLE to understand and sometimes you like it that way but it’s stupid and gets you nowhere, you’re not a genius if people get nothing out of your hard work. So pay attention to people and stop trying to be the best or create something new, and if you do don’t make it too hard to understand; you’ll sound insane. And don’t be an asshole, research things before you run with them. Also? Try not to get murdered for something you said, even if the other person was wildly in the wrong; it’s no fun to die.

Pisces: Do you… have your own thoughts?? You’re just a big conglomerate of whatever it is you’ve heard from other people. The most fucking frustrating part is that you’re soooo good at passing everything off as your own! I honestly don’t even know if you realize you haven’t got a lot of your own thoughts and opinions, it’s all a bunch of other peoples’ crap that went through your little washing machine mind. Also… you have the stupidest most dangerous ideas… no; you should not actually cook things on the sidewalk or your space heater. It’s dumb not creative, and one of those things could literally electrocute you. You should not ever get swept up in your ideas because you’ll die.

“Tsuna-kun, where did you get this jacket?” Nana lifts the jacket Ricardo gave him the day before up. Tsuna pauses mid-bite, suddenly remember he hadn’t given the man his jacket back before rushing inside yesterday. He should fix that today.

“A friend gave it to me yesterday,” Tsuna says. “His name’s Ricardo. He’s nice, Mom!”

“Well, I’m glad to hear you made a friend, Tsuna-kun. I’ll dry the jacket, and you can return it later on once you get Ricardo-san’s address, okay?”

“Okay!” Tsuna agrees. “I can ask him.”

Iemitsu, previously absorbed in his food, seems wary of the jacket as Nana tucks it over her arm and walks out to the clothes line. “Say Tunafish, what’s this Ricardo fellow like?”

Tsuna ponders the question. “Well… he’s really tough-looking. And he does this a lot,” he arches an eyebrow in an imitation. Iemitsu’s mouth twitches and he hastily covers the smile.

“What’s he look like?”

“Tall, long hair, pretty red eyes–”

“Red eyes?” Iemitsu interrupts, and there’s alarm in his voice. “Tsuna, are you sure?”

anonymous asked:

Question! So I'm in my junior year of an undergrad in chemistry and I want to go to grad school, shoot for that PhD. But my advisor doesn't really give a crap about his students, and I don't even know how to begin looking for programs. I know I don't like analytical or physical, I think I want to do organic work. But that's as specific as I know, and trying to wade through the jargon in potential advisors' professional bios is near impossible. Where am I even supposed to start with this?

I would suggest reaching out to another prof in your department and seeing if they’ll sit down with you and talk about grad school stuff. 

Find a prof whose class you liked or whose research you find interesting and ask them if they’ll be willing to talk about grad school and their field or whatever with you. I would suggest trying to find a young professor who isn’t quite so far removed from the grind in possible, or a professor who is similar to you in some way (so if you’re a woman, see if there’s a female prof in your department in your area of interest. I realize that this might not work, because old white men love hiring young white men, but it’s worth a shot depending on your own identities and the make up of your department).

Professors love this stuff. Especially young professors, and they tend to actually a good sense of the field, and even just talking to them may help you sort out what you might actually want to pursue. Plus, this type of connection can make for a potential letter of rec, which is another plus.

I did this with a professor I had a class with and he ended up writing me a letter of recommendation and all around being a good resource for me in terms of sorting out what I wanted to go in to. He also tried to recruit me to his lab, so like, if your really are unhappy with your current advisor, you still have time to switch it up.

So I tried watching “Bill Nye saves the world” or whatever its called, but I have to say I was a little disappointed.  Im all for promoting a show that pushes scientific, evidence based education, but the left leaning political undertones made me a bit uncomfortable.  I lean to the left myself, but I just do not like this kind of bias and liberal comedy interjected into something thats (I believe) supposed to be educational for all people.  My father and his parents are quite right winged, so I’m always on the lookout for videos that can explain things like climate change in a way that doesn’t push a political agenda… especially since climate change has NOTHING  to do with politics.  Its this kind of crap that leads the people who need this kind of education the most (cough cough older conservatives)  to look the other way and not take it seriously.  Idk, I just expected more.


oh dear mercy please dont hate me for this @undermised

i felt the need to draw that whole scenario out for some reason

and sorry about zeffer, idk how hes supposed to look, i was just drawing from memory and im pretty sure this dosent fit his personality but the way i see it, he kinda doubles as your internet persona so i was just like what the crap and did it any ways

and its definetly but my best work, but who said i have to give my best effort all the time in everything i do? oh right my school

(btw i showed this to my dad and i think he died of laughing :””””D )

That’s the smartest decision considering they seem to be the only huntresses around but Blake being alone makes me nervous with Adam around.

Oh crap.

I would have thought burying Beacon in Grimm was enough but nope.

Isn’t he broadcasting Cinder’s back to the world?

I know in-world that Grimm Dragon is supposed to be dangerous from Glynda’s reaction but… it looks like a slightly different Nevermore. Probably huge since it came out of a mountain but I think they somewhat failed at representing its threat.

And it poops more Grimm.

Duty calls. To think Pyrrha was looking normal and calm for a second there.

Aaand Cinder saw the whole thing. I’m still not sure if she wanted to know who was going to receive Fall’s power or if she’s not sure where Fall is but it doesn’t matter, she knows _enough_ now.

Sam saw the signs, he could tell you were going to that place.  That place in your mind where you were so alone, so fragile, where the voices in your head tore you down and told you no one cared.  He saw you slip into the beginnings of despair and depression, but then made the silent resolve, he wasn’t going to let you stay there.


He had been to that place, that hopeless place of shadow and doubt.  He knew that fighting your way out would be hard, but the difference between you and him?  You had him to help you in that battle.  So Sam took a day to prepare before he decided to wipe that shadow from your mind. He loved you too much to let you feel the way you were feeling, so he was going to change it.  He was going to show you just how loved, and needed, you were.


When you woke the next morning, you felt two strong arms wrap around you and pull you into a warm chest.  Part of you wanted to smile, but another part of you wanted to push him away.  You didn’t need to drag Sam down into this place with you, he deserved better than that.  He held you close and you brought up your hands and placed them on his chest, giving a little push to try to break free.  

“I’m fine, Sam.” You whispered as you tried to free yourself from his long armed grasp.

You felt his breath across your hair as he pulled you tighter, holding you before he let out a deep sigh.  “I just need to hold you for a moment, is that okay?”  He asked wearily.

Spring 2016 Anime First Impressions !!!

OMG OK. So I’ve never done this but but but this season is just sOOO AMAZING I have to do this. I binge watched a ton of first episodes this season and so let’S DO THIS. 

1. Koutetsujou no Kabaneri

IMAGINE SHINGEKI MEETS STEAMPUNK MEETS SAMURAI. Everything. Everything is just so amazing like the art the animation the characters the setup the pacing like it just screams QUALITY. WIT Studio x Sawano Hiroyuki is finally back on track (lets not talk about owasera) and omg ok if you liked SNK you have to watch this. It also just has that pretty and retro (???) gundam art style to it that I really enjoyed.

2. Joker Game

Just. Look. At. The. Seiyuu list. (Okay I’m so biased as seiyuu trash I would watch this even if the anime is crap but) It’s actually good ??? Like the first episode build up and all that nOT TO MENTION THE CLIFF HANGER also I’m just a suck for spy-themed stuff that involves plot twists and mind tricks just praying for actually good logic here 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Music is on point !!!! While its true that it might be hard to tell the faces apart I kinda do like the more realistic touch to it (also spies are supposed to be invisible so that’s kinda cool ??)

ok spoilers I watched the second episode it was more meh cuz the pace slowed down a bit let’s hope it picks it up again

3. Boku no Hero Academia

FINALLY !!!! Ok not gonna lie my friend recommended this to me like a week ago and I just binge read the entire manga in one day. If they follow the manga, it’s going to be good. If you like the typical hero-themed (?) stuff you’ll like this. The seiyuus fit really well and they really bring the original manga to life !!

but tbh I’m just waiting for todoroki to appear mY SON

4. Bungou Stray Dogs

I knew nothing about this before watching it (except that it has a ton of ikemens and MIYANO MAMORU) so I thought this was going to be pretty serious but it had quite a bit of comedy in it w I would describe the style as similar to Hamatora, but amped up fight scenes. THE ART IS SO PRETTY AND THE ANIMATION IS SO PRETTY (imo style is more detailed than manga actually) and just a lot of shippable ikemens so yes. I read a bit ahead into the manga and while it’s not exactly my taste it definitely has decent quality/plot/characters. I guess I’ll wait and see how the anime interprets the manga.

5. Sakamoto desu ga

Of course. Of course. I have more complicated feelings about this because I LOVE the manga (and have been following it since it first came out) and it’s literally the most hilarious thing I’ve read. But precisely since it’s so funny in the manga adapting it into an anime is going to be challenging. I think they do a decent job given what they had to work with, but I definitely still find the manga funnier. 

6. Kiznaiver

tHE ART IS REALLY PRETTY and the setting is really cool, again alluding to the seven sins. i mean the protag is a moe moe shota so um. It setup/colors/characters/idk kind of reminds me of Gatchaman Crowds, and hopefully it’ll be able to deliver the same quality/depth. But also – and this is just personal taste – I’ve been avoiding a lot of anime with male-directed fanservice because it just bothers me (not !! saying that you should do the same literally do what you want) so depending on how much it continues to have this I might drop it. 

7. Mayoiga

?????? ok I mean I will literally watch anything with a bunch of crazy people in it. This feels ~okay~ and the characters seem one-dimensional… and are probably going to be hard to develop because there are so many of them (unless they start killing them off really fast haha) so I’m more skeptical. That being said I’m probably gonna watch the whole thing because the genre w

8. Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge

Probably actually just watching this because Ono Kensho (I MEAN. 20 MINS OF LAZY ONO KENSHO. I CAN LISTEN TO IT FOREVER.) but I can see why people would like it. It’s very relaxing, extremely slow paced, and just something small and fun to watch when you’re bored.


Um. Ok. Um. Oh god it’s been so long since I’ve read the original manga I don’t even remember what happens. Anyways enjoy your dose of bl and I hope they animate all the suggestive scenes i mean what

Never - Marauders Era Imagine

Requested by @mikeygc3000: could you do an imagine like the never have I ever one you did except Peter asks never have I ever fancied some one in the group and every one drinks including you

The never have I ever game was a regular occurence on late nights in the Gryffindor common room. Every now and then one or two people would sneak into the Hog’s Head under the Invisibility Cloak and steal a bottle or two of Firewhiskey, this time it had been you and Sirius’ turn. 

 So there you all were, you, the Marauders, Lily and Marlene. You, Sirius and James seemed to always be the ones to drink the most, that was probably due to the fact that you were the ones who did the most stupid stuff. Anyway you were already more than a little tipsy, and it was Peters turn, he could pretty much say anything he wanted because he had done nothing. This meant that chances were, you were going to drink.

 The whole group waited with bated breath as Peter decided what to say, eventually it seemed he had decided. “Never have I ever liked someone in this group,” he said. Every single one of you sighed in disappointment and you watched as each person reluctantly raised their glass to their lips. In response to a pointed look from Lily, you too took a drink. You suspected that you were the only person there who knew the reason that each person had drunk.

“But, who?” blurted out Peter, who had clearly been expecting just a few people to drink. No one seemed eager to open up.
“C'mon guys, Gryffindor house rules - if someone asks for the story, you have to tell them - or someone else will.” They stayed silent, unwilling to be the first to open up. You continued. “Wow guys are you that terrified? I should probably at this point remind you that I know who each and every one of you took that drink.”
 "Why don’t you tell us who it is for you first then?“ asked Lily, a sly glint in her eye.
"Because,” you began. “I actually have a decent reason. And, seeing as none of you are owning up, I’m going to spill the beans.”

 "First of all I will point out the obvious - James likes Lily, Lily likes James - and don’t give me that look guys, we all saw you snogging by the Black Lake yesterday. And now Sirius.“ At this you saw Sirius’ mocking smile vanish and something resembling worry replace it. Remus, who was next to him bore a sad expression, clearly anticipating worse news than what was about to be revealed. "Sirius likes Remus, which is just as well because Remus has like Sirius for years.” The two boys’ initial shame at having their secrets divulged was quickly replaced by broad smiles on both of their parts. You felt a swell of pride as their fingers intertwined wordlessly.

 "That leaves lovely Marlene, who had the hugest crush on Sirius back in first year. All done, you are welcome everyone.“ That was that, you told yourself, hoping to Merlin that they had by some miracle forgotten that you were supposed to tell them who you liked too. It was all very well, them and their happy endings, but you knew yours wasn’t about to happen.
 "Um, Y/N, I think its your turn now,” cued James, looking curious. Well crap.
“I, uh,” you had no idea how to say it. “I like Marlene, have for ages actually and I know she’ll never like me back and we’ll never be together, but I guess I’ll have to deal with that. Merlin’s beard, now I’m babbling. I think I might, um, I might just go now.”

Paper Cranes (Part 3/?)

The shrine was small, with only a single lonely building to its name. There was a torii, of course, but aside from that the only indication that it was a shrine was the fox statue beside the building. An Inari shrine, then – unsurprising, as they were the most common sort in Japan. After seeing the behemoth of an Inari shrine in Kyoto as well as a number of larger ones in Tokyo itself, this one wasn’t particularly impressive. It was quiet and pretty enough, he supposed, surrounded by trees as it was, but overall pretty boring.

We’re Okay

A twenty-something Stiles wakes Scott from a nightmare about the nogitsune twisting the katana into him. He’s horrified to think about how often Scott might have these dreams… 

[dedicated to velociraptervevo]

“No- no, please-”

Stiles rolls over in bed, rubbing his eyes as he tries to focus on Scott in the darkness.

“Scotty?” he mumbles, hardly awake enough to wake someone else.

“Please, please don’t-”

“Scotty, you’re having a bad dream,” he says, louder this time, sitting up.

He notices Scott’s gripping the sheets with clawed hands, and carefully keeps away from them. He almost feels bad, waking Scott—even though his nightmares are far less frequent than Stiles’, he’s always embarrassed by them. Something to do with his need to protect people, Stiles supposes. He feels like he can’t show weakness, even in his sleep.

“Please, Stiles, don’t.”

Stiles’ blood runs cold.

No. No, it could be anything. It doesn’t have to be that. Stiles could be dying in the dream, for all he knows.

But no, he’s heard that tone of voice before.

You okay?

Please, don’t. Stop.

It’s okay.

He remembers it all too well. How small and scared Scott’s voice had gotten on the word ‘stop’, making him sound so unlike himself. The little gasping hitch of breath. The screams of agony as Stiles twisted the sword in his gut.

Does it hurt? Look at me.

Stiles has the sudden urge to vomit. Selfishly, he almost doesn’t want to wake Scott, doesn’t want to see the moment of fear in his eyes when he sees his nightmare sitting over him.

“Scotty!” he repeats, grabbing his shoulder and shaking it before he can let himself chicken out. “You’re having a nightmare. Wake up, Scott.”

Scott sits up, gasping, and almost smashes his head into Stiles’.

“Hey, hey,” Stiles says, forcing his voice to be soothing as he pets his hands over Scott’s arms. “It’s fine. You’re fine. Just a bad dream. It’s alright.”

Thankfully, there’s no panic attack.

“Oh,” Scott breathes. When Stiles tries to lock eyes with him, Scott’s dart away, and something heavy settles in Stiles’ stomach. “I’m sorry, did I wake you?”

“Yeah, no biggie though. Your eyes are still red, by the way. Claws are out too. Try to breathe a little, okay?”

He rubs a gentle hand up Scott’s back to try to help get him started, and Scott flinches.

That’s the spot where the sword went through him, Stiles realizes, feeling sick as he yanks his hand back.

Scott immediately flushes, and they come to an unspoken decision to act like it didn’t happen. Then, being the fucking amazing person he is—too good for Stiles, Stiles who was weak, Stiles who let himself be possessed, Stiles who is still screwing up—Scott takes his hand and sets it there again.

He takes deep, slow breaths as Stiles rubs his back, and eventually his eyes fade back to their warm brown.  

“Thanks,” he murmurs, running a de-clawed hand through his hair.

“You wanna talk about it?”

No matter how much he hates it, Scott always feels better after talking things over. Stiles can’t deny him that, even if it’ll be awful for himself.

“It’s fine,” Scott says, too quickly. “I should probably get back to bed. I’ve got that 8:30 class tomorrow.”

“That’s on Thursday.”  


“Scott, you know you can tell me anything, right?”

He can’t imagine how long Scott’s been keeping this bottled up. Doesn’t want to imagine how long it’s been giving him nightmares.

“Yeah, of course,” Scott says, eyes finally flitting to Stiles’. “It’s just not a big deal. Don’t worry about it.”  

“It was about me, wasn’t it?” he asks tentatively. He doesn’t want to pry, to make Scott talk about things he doesn’t want to, but he’s pretty sure it’s much more a matter of Scott thinking he doesn’t want to talk about it. “You kind of… said my name.”

Scott swallows hard, and that’s really all the answer Stiles needs.
