just to see if this actually gets notes

anonymous asked:

No offense but what do you love so much about Anthony? I don't dislike him but I'm not a fan either.

BUCKLE UP FOLKS this is gonna be long.

What do I love about Anthony Ramos Martinez you ask? Well let’s start off with where it all started: his voice. I LOVE Anthony’s voice. It genuinely calms me down. It’s smooth and soft and feels like honey. But then it can get deep and robust and strong when he hits the lower notes. It’s so charming.

Next I saw pics of him and was like dAMN. He’s very attractive ok. And like not just sexually. His freckles are so cute and pure and look like stars. I can’t express how much I love them. His smile is like actual sunshine when you see him laugh he gets these little crinkle by his eyes and his smile just takes over his face and it’s just pure unadulterated happiness.

That’s the superficial so now lets get deeper. One thing a lot of you may not know about me is I’m an actress. I haven’t done it in YEARS and id like to get back to it but anyway. I know good acting when I see it, and Anthony is g o o d. I watched White Girls and I hated it yes, but Anthony did so well in it. I feel like he really captured the character and the body language in the film compared to what he uses was so different it’s really incredible how he transformed.

Then I learned more about him as a person. He’s obviously hard working, everyone in theatre has to be. But He’s also light and funny and kind. The way I’ve seen him interact in videos of him meeting fans is so refreshing. The way he shows his love for Jasmine is cute and adorable and I hope so many loves me that much some day. He’s great with kids I’ve seen pics and videos of him with children and it just melts your heart. I know some people who’ve met him and none of them have had a bad thing to say. In all the bts videos we’ve seen he’s giggly and cracking jokes and having fun. Being positive. It’s just like a lot of great things. This section feels ramble though so ill move on.

We have a similar story. It’s very different but same concept. He wasn’t able to play baseball in college because he didn’t get form in on time. He never intended to do theatre. When things with baseball fell through he found a new dream and he worked for itHARD he fought for a place in a school, he fought in the school to find his place, and then he fought for jobs. Even after he booked Hamilton he had to work (he worked at a bakery and a daycare which for those of you who know me you know why this had me so shook when I found out)until they began cause he needed an income still.

FINALLY he’s a talented writer. He writes music and Ocean City, Hold On, and the song he did for Daveed’s concert ( cant think of the name right now I’m a fake fan) are all so so beautifully written.

so thats a summed up version of why I love him.

anonymous asked:

If the art was that good people would see it anyway. Without the artist needing to reblog it 100 times

I see you’re stemming from liv’s @larvesta own answer about this and I’m not gonna lie, I’m really hesitant about saying anything on the matter bc i don’t do this kind of thing but I realise people actually think this way so here’s a proper answer. 

It doesn’t work that way. I should know, I should really know. People here on Tumblr get lucky often and you wouldn’t think that, especially if you don’t create content yourself. Things just don’t become popular all of a sudden, most of the time it needs to get reblogged by the right person and add the balance between having good content yourself as well as an ongoing status as a creator. Not to mention how you go about treating your followers, your personality and how you act here. And you’ll tell me; “But people with good art have so many notes! It must be because they’re good! See, you don’t need to reblog it so many times!”

I hope you know what it feels like to be an artist here because I do. I especially do. I have talked, reblogged, supported, and have met so many, too many artists here, some insanely obscure. Some whose work looks like it took so many hours and has very little over 50 notes; my work included. And I can tell you now that I can personally handpick and tell you that some of the work I’m most proud of and have took many hours on are not over 200 notes. I’m not saying I’m frustrated by that, because some of us are reassured in our skill but let me tell you that every time I think of a fellow artist out there who releases amazing art and earns very little notes who looks at their note count and wonders if they are good enough, my heart breaks. And there’s young artists who are still getting by, who are not as good yet but took the same amount of effort and time, they deserve to be cheered on. 

Because people think artists here are machines, capable of creating content without regards to who actually appreciates it. No one is like that, artists are fragile just like everyone else and people really forget that. They really do. 

People don’t just see the art out of nowhere, do you understand the huge amount in this platform? There’s millions of work everywhere, you need to be supported to be seen, you need to withstand the thousands of others around you and you might have to create something that’s away from the norm to stand out, you might have to take hours of your time. You don’t know unless you really indulge yourself this platform, you don’t know unless you yourself do work for more than four hours, no breaks and absolutely tired, and look at your note count to see a disheartening number. You have no idea, you really don’t.

And don’t guilt them, please. I could reblog my art so many times, but sometimes the thougt of ‘maybe it gets annoying’ always bears in my mind, artists are made to feel like it’s okay that they’re not being appreciated. I’m proud of those who reblog their art because they know they deserve better, and guess what? They do.  

There’s a difference between good content and popular content, popular content aimed towards a specific audience that you know will like and reblog that. Good content is a dangerous hit and miss. I really appreciate people who do art for things that are not popular, because sometimes they really do have to rely solely on their skills. I say it’s a dangerous hit and miss because you know it might not have that specific audience, but you still take the effort and time into it anyway. Imagine that; knowing something is popular but going for the alternative anyway; taking time, taking effort, putting your all into it. That’s absolutely insane, man. Imagine knowing you can put that time and effort into something popular that might attract way more notes, but still doing something else for the sake of that something else. 

Also there’s the matter of timezones, in which there’s a worldly concept that everyone is in different times and not everyone is here at the same time to see the same content. I don’t want to explain this; please at least understand the concept of time. 

Artists reblog their work because they want others to see it, to appreciate it. Because sometimes it’s the only way others can. Reblogging their own work is an artist’s way of supporting themselves and you think I’m going to let you let them think that that’s a bad thing? That they’re not allowed to do that? Go home, buddy. 

I don’t have anything against anyone, I just wrote this realising that people actually think this is actually how it works and even then, I don’t have anything against you, maybe you’re just misinformed, some just don’t know enough about this to really understand. 

So here it is buds: support artists supporting themselves. It’s as simple as that.

Arophobic Microaggressions: On the Ace Community and Should-Be Allies

Just some technical things, before I start talking: The bulk of the post will be under the cut, and you can find a version in Google Docs here. Non a-specs need to keep comments in the tags or to themselves, as this is an intracommunity issue, and REGs need to keep their hands off: you are not welcome in my community nor on my posts. Please be aware that I do respond to replies, publicly, especially if they’re hateful or in disagreement. If you want a private conversation, message me. If you’d like to read more, check out the Google Doc linked above for recommended reading or my aromanticism page. Thank you to @aro-allo-positivity for his help in editing this post.

In the past couple years, we’ve talked a lot about ace issues - from oppression to validation, and from discussion to action. Activists have campaigned to be included in LGBTQIANP+ organizations and succeeded in being recognized to various degrees. As an aroace woman, I’m very happy to see issues I face being talked about, and action being taken to bring awareness to my orientation. Interacting with acespec bloggers also means I see the problems, and arophobia is a pervasive problem in acespec communities. I’ve talked about it in the past, a bit, but only at surface level. The last post I made about arophobia got 1,700ish notes, and is still getting reblogged today. After making that post, I started noticing more and more arophobia, coming from even large acespec bloggers. I decided to write this post to help people notice arophobic microagressions (the macroaggressions are pretty obvious, generally) and be better allies to the aro community.

240416 - THANK YOU for 800+ followers!! I started on a studyblr just so I could share my notes and photos and to get inspired; I certainly did not expect this!

Today, I’m working on some key political science terms and trying not to freak out now that I have 4 extremely heavy papers in the next week. I’ve been getting questions about the materials I use so:

1) the black pen is actually a really cheap house brand from Popular bookstore
2) the coloured flashcards are from a SG brand called Ugrade(.com.sg)
3) I use recycled paper so it’s actually the blank side of my sisters’ old music scores you’re seeing

Moral of the story: Don’t feel troubled about using expensive things for your studyblr, save the stress for your cramming instead :-)

physics doesn’t have to suck: how to enjoy and do well in your required physics classes

As someone who doesn’t intend to take a physics class ever again, I was relieved when I walked out of my second semester physics final. That said, physics doesn’t have to suck or drag your average down. 

(1) How to enjoy physics: Adjust your attitude. Physics is so cool if you actually think about it. Your attitude will dictate your experience. (2) But physics is so hard: Change the way you study and don’t give up. I did better in university physics than in high school. The content was way more difficult but it was my studying methods that made the difference.

This post is split into 3 parts: Introductory physics (very basic physics, that unit of physics you had to do in a lower level science class), high school physics (physics from an algebra-based perspective), and university physics (calculus-based physics and labs). (Obviously these overlap a lot but I needed to organize this somehow)

INFO IS UNDER THE CUT B/C THIS POST IS RIDICULOUSLY LONG

Spoiler for GotG 2!

Headcanon that Kraglin and Peter actually keep up the habit of collecting little cute trinkets and arrange them on the control console for everyone to see. Whenever they dock on a planet, you can be sure that they bring back at least one new one.

The other Guardians, new and old ones, notice that, of course. A few, like Gamora and Rocket, can put two and two together and smile sadly. The others think it a bit weird, but no one dares to interrupt or ask, since both men seem so calm and peaceful when they place the trinkets there, smiling nostalgically at them.

It’s Groot who wants to add something on his own, since he feels that this is important, somehow. He finds the old Ravager badge he, uh, borrowed during the failed attempt at escaping, and places it next to the various trinkets. He doesn’t really understand why, but the crushing hug Peter gives him and the wobbly smile of Kraglin seem to indicate that they very much appreciate the gesture.

Gamora follows with a knife, the most beautiful carved one she owns. It should represent both sides of what she knows, good and bad, beautiful and ugly, and it’s pretty much the most honest thing she could have given. (“I think he would have understood that”, she tells Peter later, and gets a smile for it.)

Drax still doesn’t understand what’s going on, but since everyone is in it, he doesn’t want to be left out, and adds a ring that once belonged to his late wife. This, he thinks, is a good place for it to stay. Peter assures him that this is more than he had to give, but Drax waves it away and reminds him that she would have wanted that, too.

Mantis is a bit out of her depth - there are various feelings and emotions clashing and wavering through the air here, many of which seem to be the exact opposite of each other - but she gets help from Groot. She catches a few flowers and lights the little tree produces in a glass jar and puts it on the console, feeling that she did the right thing when Peter and Kraglin both beam at it once they see it there.

Rocket’s trinket is eyed suspiciously (“This better not be a bomb again, Rocket”) but he just snarls at all of them and shushes them. He has scraped together a few bits and pieces and molten them into something that looks like a tiny arrow, music notes carved into the sides of it. (“It’s actually not a bomb? I’m impressed.” - “Will you shut it, Quill.”)

The collection grows and grows, miss-matching trinkets and little cute things added slowly. Some break over time - a space ship is not the best place for such things - but are replaced with others.

Sometimes, Peter sits cross-legged in front of the console, Zune in and music turned loud, and nobody interrupts him in his silent remembering. Sometimes, Kraglin seeks comfort there when the training with the arrow doesn’t go as planned.

Sometimes, all of them just look at it, remember, and smile.

It’s a good thing to remember a Dad by.

Previously:

At the mention of the Helicarriers, his head shot up.  His eyes were wide, and you could practically see the memories flooding back into his mind. “Steve.  Oh my God, Steve.  Is he dead?”

“Steve?  Do you mean Steve Rogers, Captain America?”

With every word you spoke, his face seemed to crumple.  He looked down at his left arm in disgust as he flexed the metal fingers.  “What did I do?”

“Oh my God, you’re the guy that almost killed Captain America.”  You didn’t wait for him to confirm or deny your statement.  Without thinking about the consequences, you turned and ran for door behind you.


 

You made it to the back porch, your feet mere inches from the grass when a cold metal arm wrapped around your waist, pulling you up against a solid wall of muscle.  His right hand clamped over your mouth as he effortlessly carried your struggling form back into the house.

Just got back from Voter Protection Training!

It went really well! We do it in odd election years before the primaries because there are historically a lot of shenanigans regarding people crossfiling to get in primaries for parties not their own and we tend to have election observers for the different candidates in place, but there was a lot of general purpose information I want to generally make sure everyone knows.

Polling Place Dos and Don’ts: Campaigning

  • Candidate Behavior in Polling Places: Candidates can enter, vote and leave. They cannot hang around inside to say “hi” to voters, even if it’s stuff that’s not technically partisan like “I just want to thank you for voting today!” Vote and get out.
  • Not a candidate? You still literally shouldn’t even speak a candidate’s name while inside the polling place. This extends to the poll workers - if you forget a candidate’s name and ask the poll worker what it is, they actually should not even tell you that much. If you ever see a poll worker suggesting a specific candidate or seeming to promote a candidate, it is a violation and should be reported.
  • Along similar lines: do not wear candidate paraphernalia inside. No buttons, no shirts, no hats, no weird fun themed socks. This is a bit of a gray area but generally speaking, err on the side of caution and don’t.
  • Pamphlets should be handed out outside the polls, not inside. Rules vary by state, but generally you can’t hand out literature for a candidate inside the polls or within a certain perimeter of the entrance. I’ve seen some argument back and forth as to what counts as the “entrance” if you have two sets of doors, with an outer one to the building and an inner one, but I’ve absolutely reported people for being inside the polling building and seen them dutifully standing outside afterwards, so generally assume they should not be in the building.
  • NO ONE CAN BLOCK VOTERS FROM ENTERING OR INTIMIDATE VOTERS, INCLUDING GETTING IN THEIR PATH OR DEMANDING IDENTIFICATION OUTSIDE THE POLLS.
  • I want to really emphasize that last point - if you are in a voter ID state, your ID will be checked INSIDE. If you are asked for your ID outside the poll, that is a violation and those people do not have legitimate authority.
  • If someone is intimidating or harassing voters, including demanding to see ID,  report them. Additionally AS LONG AS YOU ARE OUTSIDE THE POLLING PLACE - get them on video on your phone if possible. Post the video to social media, but also post it to your local news station’s Facebook page. That having been said, be veeeery cautious about doing this inside a polling place - there are definitely rules in some states about recording inside a polling place. I’m afraid I can’t give general advice for this situation.
  • If you are unable to get into your polling place due to accessibility issues, that is also a violation. Report it, same as above.

Reporting Violations: See Something? Say Something!

  • Spot violations? Report them ASAP so they can be stopped before the day is out. They might get one or two voters, unfortunately, but don’t let them scare people away all day! They can be blatant about this type of thing, too - we had a story in tonight’s training about a district where, for years, Latinx voters were turned away at the door and told that “Latinos don’t vote here.” It was finally uncovered three years later when a phone banker calling for a local candidate spoke with a Latina woman who asked “Will I be able to vote this year?” and “I haven’t been able to vote these past few years, do Latinos vote somewhere else?” This was uncovered in 2012. Keep a sharp eye out. 
  • Generally speaking, each polling place should have a Judge of Elections - if anything is wrong, go to them first. Ask a poll worker until you get to speak to them.
  • Is the Judge of Elections complicit or not cooperating? Then go over to their head to the County Board of Elections. This information, obviously, varies by County, but I suggest googling it for your County and putting it into your phone’s address book.
  • 866-OUR-VOTE also does voter protection services, but their reactions may be slower, so go to them only after the above steps.
  • Phone issues/phone anxiety/etc.? There may also be places to report online! As I was informed, state sites are often more reliable for that then county, but please try to file a report on both. 
  • But the most important thing of all? Report A.S.A.P. The day after the election might stop them from pulling a repeat act next year, but who knows how many voters they’ll be able to stop before then? Don’t let these clowns operate all day! 
  • Finally, just as a note if you do see someone actively intimidating voters: record and report, but do not engage. However, you can offer to escort voters inside if they’re being intimidated! 
  • If you see someone being intimidated, encourage them to come forward - if you’re being intimidated, PLEASE come forward. Reporting when it happens the only way to nip this kind of thing in the bud. Without people coming forward and reporting, we get Latinx people being turned away from a polling place for three entire years before someone actually alerts the authorities because apparently no one posted a competent election watcher in that entire frigging time.
  • (I’m still so mad about that story - just oh my god.)

Trouble With Voting? Name Not on the Roll? No Voter ID?

  • Again, can’t emphasize this enough: If you have any trouble voting, flag down the judge of elections if you need help, then call your county board of elections if that fails or the judge is complicit in the problem.
  • Is your name not on the rolls? If all they’ve done is flip the book open to your alphabetical spot, they have not done their due diligence. Voter registration can be slow: sometimes, voter registrations will be sent in as “supplementals” to the book, depending on when they arrive. Have them check back of book for the supplementals first.
  • Still can’t find your name? Are you reasonably sure you’re in the right place and have registered? Better yet, is the online voter registration checker telling you you’re registered? Have the Judge of Elections call the county board of elections to see if you’ve been registered but not yet entered in the book yet!
  • Also, live in a Voter ID state? Check to make sure of the requirements! Some states only require voter ID if it’s your first time voting in that polling place. The exact form of acceptable ID may vary but your driver’s license should always be enough. If they’re telling you it isn’t, they are lying. Report it.
  • And if all else fails? ENTER A PROVISIONAL BALLOT. If you can prove after the fact that you’re eligible to vote at that polling place -  say, if you forgot your voter ID - you can still have your vote counted! 
  • You may never be denied a provisional ballot, ever. If someone tells you they’ve run out of provisional ballots they are ALMOST CERTAINLY LYING - they have a truly absurd amount of those on hand and can call for more. If someone tells you this, call the board of elections and tell them “Hey, [x voting place] is out of provisional ballots.” That’ll be resolved real quick then.
  • In fact, was there a mixup about your polling place? Whenever possible, you should always get to your actual voting place, but if you can’t make it in time to vote there, try filing a provisional ballot at the polling place where you currently are! It may be counted for your proper polling place later! Basically only do this if you physically cannot get to your polling place before the polls close, though. 
  • If you or someone else needs translation services, they are legally entitled to them; however, the translator does need to be certified, generally; you can’t just bring a friend or family member in to translate in the booth.

Poll Watcher and Worker Responsibilities

  • Poll watchers are usually registered for a certain candidate. I’m not sure if this is true for all states but in at least some there is a limit to number of poll watchers per candidate. Sometimes they’ll let a generic political party have a poll watcher (E.G., ‘Poll watcher for the Democratic Party’, etc.), but it’s rare and may be thrown out, so don’t count on it if you have another option.
  • Poll watchers need to be registered and approved. You can’t just show up and ‘poll watch’. If someone is claiming to be a poll watcher without official papers, report them. If someone is trying to ‘poll watch’ inside the polls without official papers, definitely report them.
  • What can poll watchers do? Well, for starters, they can check before polls open that numbers are at zero! After that, their job is to sit at table and watch. 
  • Do NOT tell any voters what candidate you are pollwatching for. That is a violation. See that thing about “literally do not speak a candidate’s name inside of a polling place” above.
  • Poll watchers can also watch the votes being counted and can even watch as the write-ins and absentee ballots are counted.
  • Aside from the Judge of Elections, poll workers, and poll watchers, polling places may also have an inspector for each party. Poll staff can be elected or appointed, depending on the position - if your polling place doesn’t have anyone from your party, you can tell the judge of elections you’re interested in volunteering. HOWEVER, you’re there from before it opens to after the last vote is counted, so make sure you’re up for that because that is a loooong day.
  • Finally, just as a general note: Exit pollers can ask you how you voted, but you can refuse to answer - no one can force you to answer how you voted.

And that’s my absurdly long voter protection spiel! There’s a lot of other voting rights stuff to know in terms of registration, felon registration rights (varies by state!), homeless registration rights (I know in at least some states you can register even if you’re homeless and just need to circle the area you’re usually in on a map in order to register, but that may not be universal), but we just covered stuff at the polls themselves here.

Now, get out there and vote! Every year has at least a primary and a general election, plus sometimes special elections - please don’t just turn out for Presidential elections!

I Must Not Tell Lies

Request from anonymous: Prompts “You hide it in jokes and sarcasm, but I can see how broken you are” and “Who did this to you?”

Thank you anon! I decided to base this around Umbridge’s year (Order of the Phoenix) and the reader was Cedric’s best friend and is dating Draco, and Umbridge says that Cedric’s death was just an accident and says bad things about him so they stand up for him and get punished.

**** NOTE!! The lesson is not based on the actual lesson, therefore it is not word for word!!! :)****

Are you filming me? // SHAWN MENDES

Overview: Can you do one where y/n is driving and Shawn is in the car too and another driver did something and y/n was just angry and swearing and Shawn laughs and records her. I find this really funny.

Authors note: I laughed while writing this and if no one else finds this funny I need to get my humor checked bahah

Requested: yess


“Did you see that?” I exclaim, turning to look over my shoulder for a split second, my expression one of utter disbelief.

“What hun?” Shawn murmurs, looking up from his phone.

“That cow just came out right in front of me!” I clench the wheel between my fingertips angrily. 

“An actual cow or?” Shawn smirks and I shoot him a glare.

“A driver Shawn,” I mutter.

“And now she’s driving like 40 under the freaking speed limit!” my voice raises and I can feel the anger churning in my stomach. “Can I honk her? Shawn, let me honk her… please!” I beg him, looking at him quickly and he’s grinning, eyes alight with happiness.

“Baby, don’t you dare,”

“I’m going to honk her,” the car stops and I press on the break quickly, jolting us forward in our seats.

“DON’T JUST STOP!” I press hard on the horn, anger written all over my face.

Shawn’s cackling beside me, struggling to get air in his lungs.

“What the fuck is she doing, no no no, don’t put on your indicator- fuck she put on her indicator,” I bite my lip, turning my indicator on as well.

“If she’s going to the same place we are, I’m going to flipping loose it,”

“I think you’ve already lost it Y/n,” Shawn gasps. Out of the corner of my eye I see him raising his phone up.

“Are you filming me? Wait, yes- film this… this monstrosity,” I gesture to the car in front of me that’s slowly starting to move into the middle of the road.

“She’s going to get her self killed, and then, she’s going to get us killed,” I say, one hand raising to tug my seat belt tighter. 

“I believe in your driving skills baby,” Shawn chuckles.

“Not the time to laugh Shawn, have you been to church lately?” 

“No,”

“I would get worried, we’re about to be seeing God soon,”

His laugh fills the car and I can’t help but crack a smile until the car stops again. I slam my hand on the horn.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” The red mazda slowly swings around until it’s completed a U turn.

“It’s doing a U turn! Yes Shawn this is what we’ve been waiting for!” The car passes us and I turn to stare at the driver, an older lady in her mid 50′s behind the wheel. She smiles at me and I put on a fake smile back.

“What an idiot,” I say, the smile stays plastered on my face until she’s gone, Shawn currently still laughing as I put my foot on the gas, speeding up to the correct speed until the car is a speck in the rear view mirror.

“Well Shawn,” I turn to him and he smirks at me.

“Yes Y/n,” 

“What we did just there, that was what you call cheating death,”

Rest, You Need It

He needs to tell the team that he isn’t going to train today. Lance has managed to hide a head cold since yesterday, but if he wants to get better, he is going to need to rest. 

He blames this on Pidge. She’s been running a fever and complained of sore throat but 3 days ago Shiro forced her to bed with the flu. Everyone has been really good about keeping her comfortable, though Lance won’t deny that he has tried to avoid any real contact. 

While the other Paladins and the Alteans included, have provided her with food, medicine, and comfort when she asked, Lance who came from a big family, was to familiar with the saying, “Once one goes down, they all go down.” So he isn’t all that surprised that he doesn’t feel good, even if he thought he was doing a good job of preventing it. 

He needs to talk to Shiro first. 

Shiro will be more understanding.

1. Not getting enough sleep. You absolutely need sleep. Yes, you might have a big test tomorrow, but chances are you’ll be unable to retain anything late at night after hours of studying anyways. You will most likely get more out of an entire night of sleep than those two extra hours of studying.

2. Unrealistic goals. Don’t make a to-do list you’re certain you won’t finish. Don’t schedule finishing three papers in one evening. Be realistic. Things usually take more time than we think. Looking at long lists of checkboxes unchecked isn’t exactly motivating.

3. Too much coffee. I love coffee. Most of you reading this probably love coffee. But always make sure not to don’t drink too much of it, and don’t drink coffee too late in the evening. If you’re not careful, it can screw up your circadian rhytm. This applies to anything with caffeine, not just coffee. Tea is usually not that bad, since many don’t have caffeine, and the ones who do have quite small amounts, but stay away from the energy drinks.

4. Working in bed. This is something I used to do A LOT, but you can see a significant improvement in the grades I got after being more strict with myself, forcing myself to sit by a desk instead. This is how those 2+ hour naps happen. Find other places you can study and be comfortable at the same time. Just avoid the bed if you want to be productive.

5. Tumblr. Yeah, so this is a bit ironic, considering this is posted on Tumblr, but: when starting a study session, close Tumblr. If you can’t stay off, download a website blocker.

6. Spending too much time planning. Let me explain this: If you spend half the time you have available planning your study session, and then the rest actually studying, you’re probably not all that productive, unless the excessive amount of planning truly makes you a lot more productive in your study session. Plan out your study time quickly, don’t spend too much time on it. You might feel productive, but the goal here is to study, so make sure you actually do.

7. Thinking “I’ll remember this, so I won’t write it down”. No. You will forget this at some point. WRITE IT DOWN. This applies to everything, not just studying and school. Make a note on your phone, in your journal, wherever. Just jot it down somewhere, you’ll be thankful you did.

8. Falling behind. This is not mighty specific, but it is important. Once you fall behind in one subject/class, you’ll most likely fall behind in at least one more. Do a little bit of work every day, and get things done right away (see the next paragraph), and you’ll avoid falling behind! Getting back on track is much harder than just keeping up throughout the year.

9. Not getting things done right away. Most important thing on this list. Received a set of maths practice problems today? Get it done today. Get it out of the way (but don’t rush through it), so you can continue with other things. On the day before it’s supposed to be done, you’ll be so glad you didn’t wait, avoiding an evening of stress trying to get it done.

10. Only writing down things written on the board/Powerpoint. Sure, the key points will usually be here, but the important details are those said out loud by the teacher/lecturer. I know it’s hard to write down things from the board/Powerpoint while also listening and taking notes from what they say, but I’d recommend focusing on taking notes from what they say. The things on the board/Powerpoint are probably key points you already know, or that you can read about in the textbook. The info said out loud might not be.

11. Being afraid to ask questions. If you have a question, ask the teacher/lecturer. Sure, there might be other ways to find the answer, but you’ll probably get a more straight-forward, clear answer from the teacher or lecturer. Also, ask right away, don’t wait. If there is something you don’t understand, going forward with the curriculum will be harder. This one might be hard for many, but try the best you can. If you are graded partially on activity in class or you ever need a reference, asking questions will make your teacher realise you are interested in the subject and learning.

In the end of this post, I’d like to remind all of you how much resources are put into your education. Your country is investing in your education and future. Appreciate the privilege of education. Realise that not everyone gets the opportunities you get, so make sure you’re not wasting them. Wow, this suddenly got very deep. But you know what I mean. 

Hope you got at least some help out of this post! Any questions/feedback? Message me, I’ll be happy to answer any questions and I’d appreciate any feedback! ♥♥

Victor/Yuuri and the Media

Alternately titled “Sachiro can find Victor character development pretty much anywhere he looks”.

As an attempt to get over the writer’s block that has been plaguing me for a month and a half, I decided to try and tackle something new. Something that’s a more outside-of-the-box idea in terms of analysis (at least I think) so let’s take a look at an aspect of the series that I haven’t seen talked about too much in terms of character development: the media!

I started thinking a while back about how we can actually see a clear change when it comes to Victor and his interactions with Yuuri in regards to the media, especially when we compare the earlier episodes to the later ones, and it got me thinking. Why does Victor act so protective of Yuuri in front of the media in earlier episodes and what changed by the later ones to the point that he’s so noticeably not there (and at what point did this shift take place)?

Victor himself actually enjoys the media attention and we have that shown to us repeatedly over the course of the show. Yuuri, on the other hand, tolerates the media but while he doesn’t enjoy the attention he isn’t actually a terrible speaker in front of the cameras.

Before we get into the meat of the discussion, let’s take a quick look at how each of them interact with the media when left on their own (at the start of the show anyway).


Victor

The very first time we see Victor, he’s in front of the cameras. His heart may not have been into it but he was still able to pull out a big smile. Even more in our faces later, we see him winking at the crowd at Worlds and sending everyone into a tizzy. He’s very much an extrovert and gets his energy from others around him.

Even after he moves to Japan, and especially once Yuuri and Victor get back into the competitive circuit, we see him thriving off any media attention he can get; whether it’s interviews, at the kiss & cry, or from the attention given to him by his fans.


Yuuri

On the other hand, Yuuri is very docile in front of the cameras. He’ll respond with phrases that you can tell he prepared ahead of time. You can see that he doesn’t really enjoy the attention but he’s been at this long enough to know how to deal with and tolerate it. In contrast to Victor, you don’t see Yuuri waving at the cameras and actively seeking out attention from his fans.

We can see examples of Yuuri on the far side of this spectrum in episode 1 where he actively tries to avoid interacting with his fans. We can also make the assumption that he avoided all media and social media in the space between the GPF and the Stammi Vicino video due to no one having an inkling as to what his career plans were (even though him skipping out on Worlds as the only Men’s Singles skater for Japan would have already been suspect – I wonder what excuse he gave because it definitely would have hit the press either way).

Edit: he didn’t qualify for Worlds at all due to his poor performance at Japanese Nationals, my bad!


As you can probably guess, putting both of them in the same frame would certainly cause some interesting interactions, and that’s exactly what happens! So let’s take a look from the start and see how they managed to somehow get to a point where Victor is leaving Yuuri to deal with the media alone/actually been tame in front of the cameras as seen in the last episodes!

(More under the read more due to length/images so please enjoy the rest of the analysis!)

{Special} College!AU Yugyeom
  • major: applied mathematics 
  • minor: dance 
  • sports: on-campus dance team along w/ jimin + jungkook, mens volleyball 
  • clubs: math club is boring so he dropped it for tango club and is trying to make everyone else come and try it. jackson agreed, jb was dragged there against his will
  • where do i even BEGIN,,,,,,,he’s the most adorable person and laughs sO loud at his one professor’s math puns that everyone else thinks is just straight up Corny but no yugyeom is c a c k l i n g with his hand on his stomach and smacking his hand down against his desk
  • and the professor even is like sheesh it wasn’t THAT funny but yugyeom is close to tears
  • so why math??? well yugyeom had initially planned on doing like finance for businesses when graduating or something and he’s always had a good knack for problem solving
  • even though sometimes the way he does it is kinda????? weird
  • like there might be a formula for something, but yugyeom will find a short-cut around it or come up with a whole new way of finding the answer
  • and a lot of his fellow majors are like ?????? how,,,,is it magic??? math is a solid concept????? but like,,,,,is it,,,,,yugyeom is always like “you guys need to think more like newton,,,,,,,like would he have found out all this stuff if he thought we already knew everything????? nO!!!!!!!”
  • and you look at him and see this tall, silly boy with a shining smile and kind of a childish nativity about him
  • but then he’s telling you about his combinatorial analysis homework and how fun enumeration problems are
  • and you’re just like???? what language is he speaking in????
  • he actually really likes doing his homework before dance practice because solving problems gets his adrenaline going and tbh people might not see it this way but dance has a lot of math in it too
  • you have to know the sequence of moves, what angle to bend toward to make it look pretty, how much time you have and what moves should fit in at what intervals
  • but when yugyeom was like “our routine is like a reaaaaalllllly cool equation guys!!!!!!” everyone on the team was like what in the world
  • is a good student, but if you open his notes up you’ll see doodles in the corners of pages of like jinyoung frowning with furrowed eyebrows and yugyeom is like “look, even on paper jinyoung is mad at me!!!!”
  • part of what people affectionately call the F4 of the math department,,,,,the other members are well,,,,,,,the most important thing is yugyeom is the youngest one of this group and people are always shocked because they’re like whAT he’s so tall,,,,,,,,tho,,,,,is he really that young????
  • his dance minor is purely for his own enjoyment,,,,even though the majors who take classes with him all agree that he’s really rEALLY good
  • “jinyoung can you get me that book over there.” “the one at the top?” “oh you know what nevermind ill get it since you’re too short!!! wait don’t hit me im sorry im sOR-”
  • jb: “don’t egg him on like that yugyeom, you know what’s coming if you do.”
  • yugyeom rubbing the bruise on his head: “buT,,,,,,”
  • joined volleyball team because the coach really wanted him on the rooster (plus it fulfills one the credits for his dancing minor so double win)
  • spiked a ball really hard by accident and it hit the floor and literally. deflated.
  • yugyeom with his cute face,,,,,,but hellish strength like honestly jinyoung should start being scared jkjkjk
  • and you’re actually,,,,,,well you’re dating yugyeom
  • it all started with you being at the dance team competition since you’re covering it for the uni journal and yugyeom,,,,,,,,whose usually one of the stars of all of the teams choreographs,,,,isn’t there????
  • like when the team comes out to perform you can hear the hushed whispers behind you and everyone’s like “where’s yugyeom??” “where’s the really pretty tall one??”
  • and you see how stressed the team captain looks and you’re like,,,,,something must have happened
  • and you know you should stay there and cover the competition,,,,but your curiosity gets the better of you
  • and you slip out of the dance hall and make way down the hallway that is packed with different college dance crews, bags of makeup and uniforms and props lay everywhere and you find the door that has your uni’s team on it and you knock on it,,,,,,,waiting until you hear a reply
  • and you’re like “can i come in?” and the person says sure and when you open the door,,,,,,,,there’s yugyeom
  • and he’s wearing the outfit, pretty makeup and everything but he’s sitting with his hand is on his ankle and he has this look between pain and confusion
  • and you’re like “i,,,,,im from the uni journal but i saw you weren’t going to be performing and i got worried?? i ,,,,,, know this is weird we’ve never spoken before but -”
  • and yugyeom’s confusion fades but he still has a bit of a grimace before he smiles and says that he’s fine, just a twisted ankle
  • but you’re like “does it hurt? maybe you should see a doctor?”
  • and he’s like “it should go away, im massaging it,,,,,,,,,,,”
  • and you kind of frown and are like “how long have you been massaging it?” and yugyeom kind of nervously laughs and shrugs and he’s like,,it’s been about 40 minutes since practice ended-
  • and you’re like bOY that’s not a twisted ankle that’s a sprain 
  • and you’re like “you need to go to the doctor. ill call an ambulance.”
  • but yugyeom suddenly tries to get up to stop you but wobbles forward and you’re like o h nO and you run forward so he can lean onto you before he topples over and you’re like “sit.”
  • and yugyeom opens his mouth but you’re like “no no. sit. stay. im calling an ambulance and im telling the captain.”
  • and you do all that, and the captain says he’ll drop out too to go with yugyeom but you tell him you’ll handle it
  • and you basically ride with yugyeom to the ER where the doctor confirms that it is in fact a sprain and yugyeom needs pain meds + a break from practice
  • and after he’s discharged, you have his arm around your shoulders as you’re helping him so you two can catch a cab back to campus
  • and he’s kinda getting red in the face and you’re like ????? are you ok and he’s like “im still,,,,,,,,in the dance costume and makeup so it’s,,,,,,,weird”
  • and you do notice people are looking at you two but you just roll your eyes and you’re like “you look good, they’re just staring because you’re handsome.”
  • and yugyeom gets even redder when you call him handsome and you kind of bite back your lip because WHAT are you saying,,,all of a sudden,,,,,,
  • but it doesn’t end there no way buddy you both are getting all shy in the cab and the driver thinks you’re a couple and this is litERALLY your first day ever having a conversation with him
  • but yugyeom,,,,,,,,,,,,,,is,,,,,,,,,,woah like his visuals,,,,,,,,wow,,,,,,and you can’t help but deny being attracted to him on a physically level
  • but then you see how he innocently plays with his earring in the car, smiles when you guys are at a red light and there’s a group of kindergartners crossing the road, and how he keeps leaning his long legs (obviously cramped in the back of the cab) as close as he can to the side so you have enough space to sit comfortably
  • and when you pay for the cab since yugyeom’s wallet is back in his bag at the performance hall he gives you the most upset, puppy dog look and is apologizing and bowing 10000 times because he shouldn’t make you pay like this for him!!!!!
  • and you’re just like “yugyeom,,,,it was fifteen bucks it wasn’t that bad now promise me you’ll go straight to your dorm and rest.”
  • and you pull the pain meds from your pocket and hand them to him and you’re like “you remember, two every 8 hours!!” and yugyeom nods and you see suddenly
  • the cute mole right beneath his eye,,,,,,the way his bangs fall straight over his eyes,,,,,,,cute bowlcut,,,,,,,,,,,pretty long limbs,,,,,,,,and you’re like ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh he’s cute. i think he’s cute. oh no
  • and yugyeom, you can’t tell, but he’s thinking the sAME DAMN THING about how cute you are like oh NO he’s getting mushy for you because out of everything you could have done today, you helped out a stranger you didn’t even know well and put so much genuine care into making sure he was ok
  • and you’re both standing there,,,,,,and yugyeom is like “iF ITs,,,,,,,,,ok,,,,,,,can i ,,,,,,,,,,,have your,,,,,,,,,number,,,,,youcansayno!!!!!!!” and you’re like djfkldsfl of course you can !!!!!!! 
  • and by the end of the week, with many texts, majority you being like: no yugyeom don’t go to dance practice taKE YOUR MEDS PLEASE AND REST
  • you both decide to meet at the library you know,,,,,,to study together,,,,hangout as friends
  • half an hour in though you’re like “yugyeom, if i can be very straightforward,,,,,” and yugyeom is already getting flustered but he’s like “yes?”
  • and you look at your book than up at him and you’re like “do you wanna maybe not study and,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,makeout?”
  • and yugyeom’s eyes widen at the word and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,was i reading the signs wrong? but he shuts his math textbook and giggles into his palm before extending it to you and he’s like “im glad you asked, i was too nervous to.”
  • and yes. you makeout with yugyeom in that corner of the library no one ever bothers to go to and it’s,,,,,,,,,,so cute every time you break away yugyeom is like “what if we get caught???” and you’re like “it’s kind,,,,,,of thrilling though??” and he giggles and it’s sO FREAKING ADORABLE
  • you just lean back in and kiss him and he’s literally always smiling when you first start because he’s so giddy,,,,,, and he tastes kinda minty,,,,,,,like he chewed on gum before this,,,,,,,which he totally did because guess what kim yugyeom was daydreaming about kissing you before you guys met up so he prepared. Just in case
  • and when you’re done,,,,,walking out of the library and you’re jumping up to get yugyeom’s hair fixed and he’s leaning down to ask you to give him just one more peck
  • you run straight into,,,,,,,,,,,,jinyoung and jb
  • who both ask yugyeom where he’s been before looking at you in confusion because,,,,,,,,,they’ve never seen you before
  • and jb is like “is this your significant other yugyeom?” and you and yugyeom freeze up because,,,,,,,what,,,,,,um,,,,,,,,,,
  • but you come to first and you’re like “no,,,,,im his,,,,,,,,,,,tutor!!!!! for advanced linear algebra!!!!! well yugyeom - we’ll see each other next week for more studying!! bye!!!!”
  • and you zoom the heck out of there and yugyeom is left grinning at his friends who both shake it off and ask if he’s going to eat with them and mark
  • and as you’re walking back to your own dorm you let out a sigh and you’re like,,,,,,,,,i hope yugyeom isn’t feeling too awkward,,,,,,
  • and thankfully you get a text from him that’s like: they didn’t suspect anything ~~~ we’re in the clear
  • and that’s the story of how you end up,,,,,,,,secretly dating yugyeom
  • because you both agree when you meet up again, this time off campus and at a bookstore, that you totally wanna be a thing but,,,,,,,telling people right away might be hard?????
  • because people are noisy (cough literally the rest of got7 like damn mind ya business bambam) and you and yugyeom ,,,,,, want to just be together and get to know each other
  • which you do and it’s so much fun, yugyeom is an amazing person to date. he’s this perfect mix of romantic, but still a little novice to everything but he’s so willing to do anything for you
  • and you guys have fun, at the shopping mall together or at the arcade or even just walking side by side sharing a drink and snacks and talking about life
  • and yugyeom is so silly, playing small harmless pranks on you then laughing in the way that makes his nose scrunch up
  • and you’ll sit somewhere, holding hands and getting all cuddly and everyone thinks you’re both so cute,,,,,,,the way he’s got kinda bend down to be at eye sight with you / or if you’re tall how you both look so gracious like models,,,,,,,,
  • and yugyeom always thinks of you,,,,,it’s obvious with how he’ll send you photos of him next to a patch of flowers and be like “i saw these and was like ‘wow so beautiful!!’ i thought they were you, but they’re just flowers hehe’
  • and he’ll be up late doing math homework and send you like a thousand crying emojis even though you also love the way he gets super excited about these abstract,,,,,,,,crazy complicated concepts
  • but also as sweet and innocent as he comes off with all his giggling and playful pranks or puns or jokes
  • you can tell that sneaking around with you,,,,,,,like taking risks and bringing you over to the dorm when he knows any of his friends could walk in,,,,,,,,,or even on campus like the two of you out in the back of the gym with you up against the wall and yugyeom’s lips to your neck,,,,,,,like,,,,,,,,,
  • he really,,,,LIKES IT
  • and you kinda do too because it feels like you two have this secret that is so juicy,,,,,,,like you once had to press into this small corridor because you saw jackson coming around the corner and you were up against yugyeom’s chest
  • and he had his hand on the small of your back
  • and once jackson passed by you both realized how darn close you were and yugyeom got all red,,,,,,,,,but like,,,,,,,,,neither of you moved first because it’s s fun,,,,,,it’s so fun to have secrets!!!!! 
  • you wore his sweater once to class once and forgot that youngjae was in it with you and you were like wait,,,,,,,isn’t that one of yugyeoms fRIENDS O H SHIT so you had to take the sweater off and you forgot you’d thrown it over a pajama top of yours and so your friend was like “why are you wearing a huge teenage mutant ninja turtles shirt ????” and you’re like no reason. i just,,,,,,,this is Fashion
  • but at some point you kind of get a bit sad because,,,,,,,dating secretly is so hard. you wanna go to yugyeom’s volleyball games. his dance competitions. you wanna meet up before class and kiss him before he has to go. you wanna sit in the library while holding hands under the table
  • but yugyeom seems ok with not doing,,,,that so you don’t wanna ruin it
  • until,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the secret is finally out,,,,,,,all thanks to bambam
  • who people don’t give enough credit to for being really observant because you and yugyeom just get back from a date and you run into bambam who is walking out of lab and you need an excuse since he sees you two together
  • and comes over and is like “you’re still tutoring yugyeom????? he told me he was a genius once i don’t get why he’s getting tutored”
  • and you’re like “OH ,,,,, well geniuses cough need some help sometimes too”
  • and yugyeom nods, giving his best smile and then bambam is like “i have a question, what’s that on your neck yugyeom?”
  • and yugyeom puts his hand on his skin and you look over and see the,,,,,,,,mark you left,,,,,,,,,and you’re like FRICK 
  • and bambam isn’t even looking at yugyeom when he asks, he’s looking at you and the shock on your face ,,,,,,,,,
  • well bambam is just clapping his hands together and he’s like “well i guess you’re right,,,,,,,,,geniuses do need help but,,,,,,,,maybe by that you mean helping yugyeom out with,,,,,,,,hickies???? making out?????? getting fre-”
  • and you’re like UM WHAT NO YUGYEOM THATS A BUG BITE TELL HIM
  • and yugyeom is like “yEAH it’s a mosquito bite-”
  • and bambam is cracking up he’s like “was the mosquito the size of a baseball?????? yugyeom pLEASE”
  • and yugyeom is getting red and his voice is getting slightly higher and he’s like “iT WAS,,,,,,,”
  • but it’s so freaking obvious that he’s lying and you’re like we’re caught oh shit
  • and you totally are because bambam is like “if i know, you know got7 is gonna know so you two should just tell them before i make a big deal of it”
  • and so,,,,,,,,,,,you and yugyeom sit on his bed as the six members all stand and look at you and jinyoung has his arms crossed like a concerned mother and jackson is just like !!!!!!!!!!! this is amazing!!!!!!!!!! and mark doesn’t really care 
  • and jb is just like “this,,,,,,,,,kid got into a relationship before me,,,,,,,” and ultimately it’s youngjae who goes
  • “what the hell has been going on?”
  • and you and yugyeom both explain,,,,,what happened and jinyoung is like whY DIDNT YOU TELL ME THE MINUTE YOU TWO BEGAN DATING!!!!!!!!!!!! and you’re like sORRy,,,,,,,,,,,he’s so scary
  • and yugyeom puts his hand around you and he’s like it’s ok,,, he’s always like this

  • and jackson is just like jINYounG can you Calm Down for like a minute anyway
  • and he turns to you two and he’s like “you’re both the cutest people ive ever seen. im so happy for you. please take care of our gyeomie, he’s sensitive.”
  • and yugyeom is like im nOT,,,,,,,but jackson is holding your hands and he’s like “please” and you’re like “of course???? ill cherish him with my life??????”
  • it’s a touching scene 
  • but afterwords,,,,,after got7 is gone and it’s just you and yugyeom he’s like “sorry they’re like that,,,,,,,,” and you’re like “no!! i like all of them, they’re nice.” and yugyeom is like “im gonna just say something if that’s ok?”

  • “it’s a relief they found out,,,,,,,ive been wanting to tell them but i wanted your consent first,,,,,,,,,im just thinking about how nice it would be to be able to hold you in front of everyone,,,,,,”
  • yugyeom kind of rolls his shoulders back and looks away adding “,,,,,,,to show you off as mine,,,,,,”
  • and it’s honeSTLY THE mOST adorable thing he’s so pink and he whispers the ‘as mine’ part and you can’t help it you throw your arms around his neck and you both topple over onto his bed and you’re like “im really happy because i wanna do that too!!!!!! kim yugyeom,,,,,,you’re mine!!!!”
  • and he’s laughing and wrapping his arms around you
  • and you nuzzle his neck,,,,he’s so warm and big it’s so safe in his arms
  • and just as you’re going to lean up to place a kiss against his jaw
  • the door flies open and jinyoung is like “WHAT IS GOING ON”
  • and you’re like ihbdljksfd and yugyeom sits up and you slide out of his lap and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and jinyoung is like “you two, we need to have a serious discussion about safety and-”
  • jackson comes in and literally just picks jinyoung up and is like “c’mon, let’s leave the kids alone” and you’re watching in shock and you’re like “yugyeom,,,,,,,,,,,,does this happen often?” and yugyeom shrugs like “yeah sorta,,,,,,,,,anyway you were kissing me and i’d like you to keep doing that ^^”
  • finally revealing your relationship makes you and yugyeom only get closer,,,,,like sure sneaking around was fun n hot but,,,,,being able to be together comfortably all the time is even better
  • eating lunch on the quad, being able to help yugyeom out at the gym before competitions (you’re always giving him shoulder massages and yugyeom’s friend jungkook asks once if you can do one for him and yugyeom is like “jungkook,,,,,,,,if you want me to go bowling with you net friday never ask that again” jokes jokes,,,,,,,,ok maybe not), and just like yugyeom being adorable and bragging to everyone in his classes that his significant other bought him this cute keychain look at it it’s the best thing in the WoRLD
  • yugyeom: “i love you more than i love math.”
  • bambam: “holy shit that’s a big statement coming from him. he must really love you, ive literally heard him sleep talk math equations before.”
  • you got super bored doing your homework for a class once and yugyeom was like ill come over!!!
  • you didn’t think that meant he’d bring his phone and put on some really lively music and make you get up and practice what he’s learning in tango club
  • which quickly turned to doing the tango, kissing, changing the music to something slower and somehow the two of you were dancing slowly to the music with yugyeoms forehead pressed against your own
  • like some kind of sappy romance film scene,,,,,,,,,,even though it was perfect and you literally felt like you were walking on stars in that moment
  • you have cute petnames for yugyeom and he loves them sm
  • except when his friends catch on and start calling him them in class and the professor is like “who are you calling,,,,,,,,,,angel of my life??? there’s no one in this class with that name?????”
  • yugyeom: “my love for you is like π  it’s irrational and can go on forever,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,was that corny?”
  • you now also get to wear yugyeom’s sweater in public without worrying and wow it’s so comfy and smells like him,,,,,,,,you love your boyfriend so much
  • volleyball yugyeom waving at you during practice and the ball heads straight for his head but misses and hits his shoulder instead because he’s so damn tall
  • you still run over and ask if he’s ok and he’s pouting like “it hurts ;w;” and you’re like “let me kiss it better!!!!” and everyone is like BLEGH LOVE IS CHEESY
  • it’s just so warm and loving with him, he can be so silly and childish and get overly excited about things ,,,,,,, jumping up and down and doing little cute dances 
  • but at the same time,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,he’s so gentle and considerate with you and your feelings and he’s always quietly asking for your reassurance and praise
  • like he just wants to hold you and hear you say his name and how much you love him because,,,,,,he wants to be treasured by the person he loves to infinity and beyond
  • and when you say something as simple as “you’re so amazing” yugyeom turns every shade of pink but also kisses you with such a passion you lose your breath,,,,,
  • jinyoung still sometimes is like this pda must stop- but honestly he’s so damn happy someone is treating yugyeom right,,,,,,,,and taking care of that big wobbly child
