Yiddish-speakers themselves, including some of the most prominent Yiddish writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, routinely referred to their language as Zhargon – Jargon. It was a bastard tongue, bad German, a linguistic mishmash, hardly a language at all. Jews intent on assimilation found it particularly odious. In Germany for example, Jews tried to reduce Jewishness to a Konfession, a religion divorced from culture, insisting they weren’t Jews at all, but rather “Germans of the Mosaic persuasion” Go make the case in Yiddish, where every word, every linguistic tic, is a reminder of peoplehood. Consider, for example, Max Weinreich’s example of a more or less random Yiddish sentence: Di bobe est tsholent af Shabes – The grandmother eats warmed-over bean stew on the Sabbath. Bobe, “grandmother” is a Slavic word that entered Yiddish in the thirteenth or fourteenth century. Est was adopted a thousand years ago, from Middle High German. Tsholent, bean stew, came from Old French more than a thousand years ago, probably from chaud, “hot”, and lent, “slow” – a fitting name for a dish that Jews keep warm on the Sabbath, when cooking is not allowed. And Shabes, “Sabbath,” is a Hebrew word that dates back several thousand years. Quite literally, Yiddish is a living chronicle of Jews’ historical experience, proof of their peoplehood, and therefore spills the beans on assimilationist aspirations. No wonder Bourgeois Jews hated it; no wonder scholars ignored it. In 1873, for example, the German Jewish historian Heinrich Graetz afforded Yiddish just two paragraphs in his magisterial six-volume History of the Jews. Never mind that Yiddish was then the first or only language of 80% of the world’s Jews; for Graetz, it was “eine halbtierische Sprache,” a half-bestial tongue.

Listen to me. Every Scorpio you’ve ever met who has that disaffected cool about them and who can flirt all smooth like?? Is not actually cool. We spent our entire lives trying to learn how to smother our insane levels of emotional output. We’ve got that devil may care vibe because we care too much

If you were born mired in as much intense devotion and crushing loyalty as a scorpio??? You would buy a leather jacket and overcompensate too. 

Dear Asshole Supercorp Fans

1.) Stop pretending the show baited you. The show was as upfront about their intentions as they can be. From episode 1 on. Just because you stuffed your fingers into you ears and didn’t want to hear it doesn’t mean that it wasn’t there. They promised you nothing.

You know what baiting is? 

Teasing the idea that something will happen to keep you on the hook with no intention of delivering. 

You know what the opposite of baiting is? 

Telling you it’s not there/it’s not gonna happen. 

And yet any time anybody associated with the show hints that it might not be a thing YOU get offended and act like that’s an insult that they would dare to tell you. Just like you howl in anger when the characters on the show say or do something that violates your head canon/would maybe close the door on some interpretations if you actually didn’t immediately strike them from reality as invalid. 

You can’t at the same time run around and go on about how baiting is this horrible amoral thing and then throw a shitstorm any time a show does anything to make its goals clear. That just makes you look like assholes who only pretend to be concerned about these things because you just want to browbeat people into giving you exactly what you want. By creating a fake scenario where the only acceptable choice is them doing exactly what you tell them to do. 

HAVING TWO FEMALE CHARACTERS HAVE A GOOD, MEANINGFUL STORYLINE TOGETHER IS NOT BAITING. Female characters having meaningful relationships that are not about sex should be the casual norm. Because an actually surprisingly big chunk of real life women are straight and they still have meaningful relationships with other women. 

You acting like any meaningful storyline between two female characters must have been created with the sole intention of torturting you is just selfish asshole behavior to the max. 

(btw, and let’s not pretend that f/f shippers haven’t profitted off sexist male culture, because many male creators think girl on girl is hot and actually less of an upset of the patriarchy and less hard to write than a woman and a man who is “not alpha”, not as strong as her or a popular white woman and a black man) 

2.) Stop pretending shipping Supercorp is all about representation. 

Supergirl has representation. It’s called Alex and Alex&Maggie and Alex&Sara and Alex&whoever she chooses to be with in the future. Alex is not some no-name bit character. She is the secondary lead, she is the person with the second most screentime after Kara. She matters

And before you whine “it’s not representation unless it’s the lead”. => If you want a lead, hey look, it’s right there around the corner, it’s called Sara Lance, the lead of Legends of Tomorrow (also Korra and Bo and Xena). Are you over there supporting that because it is great representation, writing fic, making arts, posting meta, creating media buzz? Or are you over here obsessiving over one particular show/actress/pairing because your personal narrative kinks are more important than supporting creators and shows and actresses that do actual representation? 

Representation is representation regardless of whether the character or ship floats your personal boat or whether the actress in question gets your personal motor running or whether that particular character’s story reminds you of your personal bio. 

No, you don’t have to ship and support something just because it is representation. You don’t control what floats your boat. You can love something else even if actual representation exists right next to it. But then stop pretending that your concern is representation when it’s actually about your personal ship/actress preferences. 

It’s not the job of representation of fill your and everybody else’s personal preferences. 

And for fuck’s sake, stop making the CW the mustache twirling villain in your conspiracy theories. The network that aired the first male on male superhero kiss in a world where a gazillion superhero movies and tv shows exist. The network where 3 out of 5 supehero shows will have canon queer women in core roles (Sara Lance, the lead of Legends, Alex Danvers, second most important character on Supergirl, Anissa Piece, the daughter of the lead character and fellow superhero on Black Lightning). The network that will allow John Constantine be bisexual when his home network NBC didn’t allow it. 

There is jack shit proof that the CW makes shows do stupid shit rather than the CW just letting shows do what they want, as in, whether its adding queer characters or writing them off. And yeah, there have been missteps like using the fake Betty/Veronica kiss as promotion on Riverdale. But I like to think they learned, for example by not plastering the big girl on girl one night stand in the crossover all over the promotion. 

The reason why you hate the CW is BECAUSE they actually have queer representation. If they had zero then you wouldn’t have anything to complain or suffer about it. But what that means is that you shit all over the person who gives you 50 bucks (because it should have been 80, you fucking asshole, how dare you give me 50!) while letting the person who gives you zero bucks off scott free. How about you take a fucking step backward and realize that your shipping concerns are not the same as being concerned of issues of representation. 

And I get it, shipping is a scary personal thing. But it’s not the same as representation and it does not justify treating the CW worse than channels that do zero representation. 

And no, queer fannish life shouldn’t just be relegated to just representation. There is many good arguments about moving beyond representation. But that’s precisely why you need to stop using representation as an excuse then about things that are about personal taste rather than using this as a fake club when you want to browbeat people into supporting your particular narrative kink ship. 

If the rollercoaster ride of CW shows’ writing is bad for your soul, by all means, back away from it, stick to more mature networks or media, like many webshows, specifically for a queer audience rather than a mixed one. Even warn others. You can give them kudos from a distance for the actual representation work they do without getting emotionally invested. 


Also? You bragging about how Katie McGrath supposedly can’t play straight and can’t sell any straight pairings in any show she is on? Is just you bragging that she’s a shitty actress who is incapable of doing the basics of her job description. You wouldn’t praise an actress for being incapable of selling a queer storyline, so why is this different? Shitty acting is shitty acting. And not being able to sell “the characer is in love” when the script says “this character is in love” is shitty acting. And that’s not something to be proud about. (note that some of you claim that about her in other shows as well, so it’s hardly an excuse to claim that she supposedly, in your headcanon, is passive agressively refusing to do her job, as a protest against bad writers) 

=> I actually don’t think that she’s that shit. But then I also don’t brag about her being incompetent while at the same time calling myself her fan. 


If you are a Supercorp shipper who hasn’t done any of this? Awesome. Then this post isn’t for you. This is specifically for asshole Supercorp shippers. 

By all means, keep shipping, keep hoping, keep petitioning, but don’t act like you were promised anything or like the network is failing representation just because you didn’t get the particular ship you wanted.

The Fans-Jungkook Scenario

(for @vernoardodicaprio )




You stared at yourself in the mirror before taking a deep breath. “You can do this. They’ll love you. And even if they don’t, it won’t matter. Cause you still got your man. Jeon Jungkook.” You heard that familiar giggle at the end of the pep talk to yourself. Speak of the devil. You turned around to watch Jungkook walk in to your shared bathroom while trying to hide the blush on your cheeks. “Baby you are so cute!” He cooed before wrapping his arms around your waist from behind. You both stared at each other’s reflections through the mirror. You truly loved how good and…right you two looked together. Despite the obvious racial differences. You being American and Jungkook being South Korean, the differences seemed endless. But the love and passion you two had for each other persevered. And you both couldn’t imagine life without each other now. You turned around to wrap your arms around your boyfriend’s neck while his stayed secured around your waist. “You don’t have to do this, you know? If you’re really worried, no one is forcing you to do anything.” You nodded along before chewing on your lip deep in thought. BTS fans have been dying to meet Jungkook’s infamous American girlfriend and you finally decided it was time to do a V-Live for all of them. “Nope, I want to. Your fans have been wanting to meet me and I’ve been wanting to meet them. It’ll be fine.” You smiled a reassuring smile. Jungkook nodded and kissed the tip of your nose. “You remember your Korean?” He asked in his native tongue. You nodded along before speaking back perfectly. “Yes, I’ve been practicing.” He smiled proudly before pressing his forehead against yours. “We’ve taught you well. I’m gonna be with the guys for the rest of the evening. You let me know if you need me, okay baby?” You nodded to him before your lips were pressed deeply against each other and you bid him goodbye.

You got your laptop with the webcam ready before making sure you looked camera ready (make up on fleek). You braced yourself calmly before signing onto the app and waiting for the comments to roll in. You made sure to enunciate your Korean correctly before speaking. “Hello everyone! I’m Y/N,and it’s nice to meet you all.” You smiled sweetly, making sure you looked nice and approachable. It had only been only a few seconds but there were already thousands of viewers signed on, watching you. And the comments would not stop rolling in. You finally were able to catch one comment asking for you to explain how you and Jungkook met. You went on and recalled the moment you actually met him at a fan signing and it was literally like love at first sight. “He knew little to no English though and I knew absolutely no Korean so Namjoon had to interpret for us for awhile.” You smiled thinking of the sweet memory of Jungkook getting flustered and frustrated with himself for not being able to understand and having to rely entirely on Namjoon. The comments were flying in. 80% of them cooing and loving the sweet story of yours and Jungkook’s meeting. “How do you know Korean now then?” You read before you answered. “He learned English for me. I figured it was only fair I learned his tongue as well. All of the boys took part in teaching me Korean and i’m very thankful to them all.” You said, silently thanking the boys once again in your head. The rest of the V-Live went fairly well. With the exception of the inevitable hateful fans, trying at every moment to tear you down. “You look disgusting, how is oppa dating you?” You remember that one comment in particular. But shook it off thinking of all the rest of the positive comments you received. Over all, you thought the fans loved you and approved. Which caused you nothing but happiness. 

The next morning, you woke up with your boyfriend’s soft snores in your ear. As he was pressed against your back with his arm slung over your body. You smiled before trying to slowly and sneakily get up from bed to head to the bathroom. “No, I think not.” You heard his raspy voice in your ear before you felt his arm tighten around you. “Kookie stoooop.” You whined before letting out a light laugh. You turned over to face him and smiled at his cute chubby morning cheeks. “How’d it go last night?” You smiled to yourself before nodding your head. “I think they liked me. I was really glad it went well.” Jungkook smiled that sweet smile before brushing some hair out of your face. “Of course they liked you. And don’t think I didn’t notice you wearing my jacket.” Your eyes widened a bit before he smirked. “You watched?!” He let out that precious laugh before shaking his head no. “No I didn’t watch.” He said while sitting up from bed. You followed his actions and waited for him to go on. “We all watched.” He said before laughing. Your mouth opened a bit in shock before you shook your head. “ARMY never gets any privacy do we?” He smiled before leaning in and lightly brushing his lips against yours. “Not from us, no.” Your lips were the attached fully.

The problems with screentime in Stranger Things 2

Okay so this isn’t anything new but I feel the need to rant a bit about it anyway: the only real problem with season 2 of Stranger Things was the sheer size of the narrative. Adding several new characters into an already big ensemble, doing a very special episode for one of the main characters with some of those new characters meant big problems with the screentime given to both them and the other characters.

Because what made season 1 so great was the size of the story and the pacing of the narrative. Running three separate storylines that then intersected was done beautifully, especially how it enabled them to connect to different genres (the kids sci-fi-story, Nancy and Jonathan in a horror movie scenario, Hopper and Joyce in a conspiracy thriller). The pacing was so good, cutting between the different storylines in a way that always kept you glued to the screen.

Of course they made season 2 in a similar way, separating the characters into different plotlines that ran parallel until they intersected, and I enjoyed both how they kept some pairings (Nancy/Jonathan, Hopper/Joyce) but also found new constellations (Steve and the kids, Mike/Will/Hopper/Joyce). But, adding so many new characters, Max, Billy, Bob, Kali and her gang, Dr. Owens, Murray, meant that we had loads and loads of characters all jostling for screentime. All the new characters need screentime to be introduced and made a part of the story, but as a viewer we’re invested in the characters we already know and love. And everyone ends up feeling shortchanged, most of the new characters feel underdeveloped or pointless while several of the old characters feel underutilized and pushed aside. Most obviously Nancy and Jonathan, but I’ve also seen similar complaints about for example Mike.

Of the new characters I feel like Bob, Owens and Murray worked out the best. Bob because he’s given screentime to be one of the more fleshed out of the new guys, plus Sean Astin brings a natural likeability to the role. Owens and Murray work because they are well-written in to the plot in different ways. Now to Max and Billy. I like Max, I like what Sadie Sink does, but I think the role is underwritten, existing solely in connection with male characters as a love interest. The Duffer Brothers have said that they introduced Billy because they wanted a human antagonist, writing him in the way Steve was initially supposed to be until Joe Keery’s charm changed that character. Fine, I get what they’re after, the human antagonists of Stephen King is great and a staple of the eighties and the influence of Stephen King on the Duffers can’t be overstated. But, do they have to incorporate that Stephen King trope as well? I love how they balanced the shoutouts and references to the 80s in season 1, it always being very present and obvious yet not in a gratuitous way. Now it feels like they’re getting away from that with Billy. Like people have pointed out, he didn’t have any influence on the actual plot of the season, he could’ve been removed and nothing of the plot would’ve been different. There lies the problem for me, his character is only there as a part of the shows style and look, in the same way music and certain imagery is, but having a character only be stylistic and not plot-relevant, I don’t like. He’s just an 80s archetype for the sake of an 80s archetype, while other characters like Nancy, Jonathan, Eleven, Hopper etc start as archetypes that are then flipped on it’s head (like how Nancy is the horror flick chick trope but is then shown to be genresavvy, competent and much more above that).

Kali then. Obviously Eleven wasn’t the first test subject, of course they were going to adress that, but I’m not a fan of how they did it. Kali by herself is an interesting character. But the whole thing with the Warriors gang… it’s along the same lines as I touched upon earlier, with it feeling like the Duffers 80s references started to become gratuitous. Now to the love it or hate it Very Special Episode. I hate it, duh. I get that they wanted to be brave and do something different, but damn it just breaks the whole flow of the season, halting all other parts of the narrative like that and of course does away with the pacing I wrote about earlier, where they otherwise are so adept at juggling several storylines next to each other. Of course it deepens Eleven’s character and she learns about herself, but the character development she undergoes there didn’t need a whole episode, in fact I would’ve loved to get more glimpses of Kali throughout the previous episodes, like the opening scene of the season, think they could’ve written it differently.

So except for the way all the new characters kind of get each other’s way in fight for screentime which renders them underdeveloped, it also has the effect of doing other characters a disservice through the hogging of screentime. Mainly Nancy and Jonathan. OK, obviously as a hardcore Jancy shipper i’m always going to want more screentime for them, but it’s not just about that. Their plotline, exposing the lab, is great but given too little screentime given the enormity of their actions and also, since the plotline separates them very clearly from all the others and sends them on their own little adventure, not giving it more screentime really pushes it aside. Now the romance aspect of it, I love that Jancy became canon this season. I’ve seen some shippers being not happy with the way it happened, feeling that it was rushed. Personally I don’t feel it was rushed per se (ie I like the idea of them finally just jumping each other’s bone after skitting around it for so long), but it came off that way due to their lack of screentime which led to an amount of showing not telling, as @valkyriav have written very well about here. That’s basically why I write my fic The Real Shit, to fill in some blanks since we didn’t get enough scenes of them because of the screentime being devoted more to other characters. Btw, @jancystrangerstuff sent me this link earlier, the middle pic in the second row really looks like it’s from a deleted scene in the car the morning after (given her outfit and from the way their positioned, like she’s next to him in the front seat to me), thought I show it because that kind of provoked this whole rant.

Finally, all these characters being introduced and not developed enough this season really made me feel like season 2 was very much a stepping stone in the larger scheme of things. Obviously Kali and other test subjects will be a part of the show’s future and hopefully Max and maybe even Billy will be given more depth, and I still have hope that they will be able to write and balance all the characters in season 3 better.

Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen from Arrow (a bitchy comparison)

I recently made it through the first two seasons of Arrow and just wanted to get some shit off of my chest. Some spoilers below, but if you’re like me, you don’t really give a shit. Let’s go. 

1. Tragic Backstory

Bruce Wayne: Both parents murdered tragically on a street, was left to cower in the blood, traumatized for life™

Originally posted by fygeneralzod

Oliver Queen: Mother was really shady, tried to kill his dad (?), Dad almost dies on cruise ship accident and then kills himself so his son lives (??) but he was also really shady and was lying the whole time?

Originally posted by feilcityqueen

2. Secret Identity

Bruce Wayne: Batfamily, two or three doctors/CIs, the JL and MAYBE a few other people know Bruce’s secret identity. He guards this pretty well, and wears a full cowl/mask most of the time. Pulls off the “Brucie Wayne” character so well, people don’t even question his stupidity. 

Originally posted by couplenotes

Oliver Queen: Tells EVERYONE his secret identity ASAP, including people who don’t even need to know, and then fails ridiculously at covering up his extra-curricular activities that, by the end of season 2, the only person who doesn’t really know his identity is his sister (?) and somehow his mom magically knew too? 

Also, for most of season 1 and 2 he wore only green face paint under the hood, which meant a lot of strategic turning/talking so they couldn’t see the blond stubble/clearly outlined facial features (wtf ollie?)

3. Skills they learned in the mountains/the island

Bruce Wayne: Trained with Ra’s, ninjas, like 60 different teachers, was gone for more than a decade, came back wise and tall and ready to exact vengeance on his city once he’d learned enough. 

Originally posted by kane52630

Oliver Queen: Got stranded on a desert island/prison, learned archery for a year (?) and some hand-to-hand combat from Slade Wilson, still, his only true skill is pissing off women, was only gone for 5 years? 

Originally posted by olivergifs

4. Relationships with Law Enforcement

 Bruce Wayne: Jim Gordon is his go-to man, drops off hints/clues, discusses cases on abandoned rooftops, slowly builds a camaraderie

Originally posted by julien-perron

Oliver Queen: Gets Detective Lance fired/demoted/arrested like 12 times, Lance hates his guts whether he’s Oliver or the Hood, really just yells cryptically at him through a voice modulator 80% of the time, 90% of the time is has something to do with Laurel, but he can’t put two and two together.

5. Killing

Bruce Wayne: Absolutely never, not even the Joker, it is his one cardinal rule™, not gonna happen, sorry

Originally posted by lamirada-del-amor

Oliver Queen: Killed a fuck-ton of people who were pretty bad, then had a moral crisis and stopped, then decided to start killing again, then had another moral crisis and stopped, then decided it could only be in really necessary situations (read: all) and just ends up doing a lot of pointless pontificating

Originally posted by aaronswarner

6. Sidekicks

Bruce Wayne: Adopts like 20 batkids, rolls his eyes but lets them do what they want, gets into arguments but tries his best™, even with Jason. Values them as a team player even when he’s being an asshole. Loves Alfred dearly. 

Originally posted by padmeahmidalas

Oliver Queen: Literally shot Roy Harper in the leg because he didn’t want him going to a crime scene alone (and then pulled the arrow out himself while Roy didn’t know his identity and pretended to be all concerned)

Yells at everyone when things go wrong (read: Felicity) but then apologizes later? always 100% wrong, but the second he makes puppy eyes and says “on the island…” all is forgiven

Originally posted by yourlovelyfelicity

7. Hideouts/Caves

Bruce Wayne: Has a cave, might have real bats in it, lots of computers, a dinosaur (?), a penny, bunch of random scientific shit

Originally posted by kane52630

Oliver Queen: A…table? lots of tables. Some computers (product placement) and a mannequin with his suit on it (always perfectly on the doll even when he just got back from patrol?) and six arrows (ONLY six) on the table, pointed upwards dramatically like he doesn’t remember his safety training (oh wait, he didn’t get any, thanks Shado)

Originally posted by michaelam1978

8. Love interest/Lead Female characters

Bruce Wayne: Likes Selina, nothing serious, treats female characters fairly well. Has meaningless sex all the time, is too serious for a real relationship

Originally posted by camrenbicondova

Oliver Queen: Supposedly likes Dinah (Laurel) but also cheated on her with her sister (Sarah) and then flipped that, then flipped it again, endlessly flirts with Felicity (who is the real catch here, if we’re being honest), calls Laurel out on her faults but still toys with her affections (and Sarah). Has the BEST idea ever and decides to have sex with Huntress, only for that to MYSTERIOUSLY backfire on him. Chooses Sarah over Shado (who he actually loved? I think?) and is directly responsible for Shado’s death and Slade’s transformation into Deathstroke

ID #22752

Name: Isabel
Age: 20
Country: Netherlands

Hi guys! I’m Isabel, a dutch university student who is really hoping to find a nice penpal:) I enjoy talking about philosophy, politics, history (since I am a history student), gifs, cats, and how amazing dancing in your underwear to 80s tunes is and daydreaming about hot dudes. I have been chronically ill since I was 11 so most of my life since has been spent sitting in my room in isolation watching series and films. Which might explain my absolute obsession with everything acting, theatre and film related. I’m even considering dropping out of uni to go to theatre school. That might also have to do with the fact that I love to learn, but hate school. I don’t like other people telling me how to think about something, That might be because I never actually really went to school before I went to uni. All throughout highschool I only sporadically went to class when I was feeling well enough, the rest of the time I just studied for tests at home and then only went to school to do those exams. I did love my maths and philosophy classes though! Because of my illness I don’t have a lot of real friendships, people tend to fade away once the going gets tough, so I would love to just talk to new people! I love to travel as well, I’m at my happiest when I’m in a different country, as far away from home as possible. I’m a HOPELESS romantic with standards higher than the highest man made structure (I blame movies) who is doomed to be single forever (but hey that is def not so bad if you can have mountains of candy and 10 cats instead of a mediocre boy). If you didn’t catch on to it yet, I’m way to chaotic to function, but I’ve been told I’m a great listener, so if you don’t mind being a penpal with someone whose letters are bound to be a bit random you will be rewarded with a friend who is loyal to a fault and will always be there to listen to you. Oh yeah, I’ll just end my rambling saga by saying that besides a physical illness I have also got an anxiety disorder, add, and have had to handle depression, so if you have one or more of those issues and want to talk to someone I’m there. If you just want to talk about how AHMAZINGG (insert any film or tv show) is then also def hit me up!

Preferences: Any gender and age is fine by me, but I would prefer maybe someone between 17-30

We’ve gotten a few questions about how to get over a fear of studying/fear of tests/fear of failing tests, and I have a few tips for getting over this!

1. Stop telling yourself that studying won’t help

“What if I’m studying the wrong stuff?” “This isn’t sticking.” “I’m going to fail anyway.” These are all things that I used to think in high school, and this delayed my studying or prevented me from doing it at all. You can’t tell yourself this because it will only stress you out and you can’t study while stressed (at least not effectively). Take a step back and be realistic. You MIGHT study some information that won’t be on the test, but no test will ever cover all the material you are taught. If you study well, you’re GOING to study important material that WILL help you on the test. 

To be blunt, yes, you might still fail. Failing a test happens to everyone, but it isn’t the the of the world. You need to get over the “I’m going to fail anyway, so why bother studying” mentality and replace it with the “Yeah, I might fail, but studying now might be the difference between a 34% and a 59% on this test.” Every point counts and studying never hurts. 

2. Study throughout the semester, not the night before the final

The fact is, the most effective studying takes place over the course of a long time, not in one weekend immediately before the exam. You can study every day simply by doing things such as rereading your notes every day and making flashcards throughout the semester. Every day I reread my old notes before class starts and eventually that information just sticks. You don’t even have to study it anymore because it’s in your head from rereading it in your notes. 

Furthermore, studying throughout the semester takes the pressure off of the last minute studying before an exam that often leads to the fear of studying. If you already know a lot of material from studying throughout the semester, that means you have much less work to do when the test comes around. This makes studying much less stressful and you’ll feel much more prepared for the exam. 

3. Actually study, don’t just pretend you are

When I got a bad grade in high school I would convince myself that it wasn’t my fault because “I studied so hard.” But in reality, I didn’t study much, if at all. Sitting in front of a book is not studying. Thinking about studying is not studying. Mindlessly reading a textbook while scrolling through tumblr is not studying. You need to actively engage with the material and LEARN it. You aren’t there to memorize information, you’re there to learn. Study the material as if it’s something you want to remember for the rest of your life, not just something you want to remember for the next 8 hours. 

4. Fall in love with learning and make goals

Studying can be a good experience, no matter what your previous experiences with it have been. I hated studying in high school and I was afraid it wouldn’t help. Now I enjoy studying because I genuinely enjoy what I’m studying and I create a relaxing environment for myself when I study.

Studying can also become easier if you set goals for yourself. It can be things like “study for 20 minutes every day” or “reread old notes at the end of every week” or even “get at least an 80% on this next exam.” When you start to see results, even if they’re small, you’ll become much more encouraged to study and it will become much easier and more enjoyable. 

I hope this helps some of you! Here are some additional links that may be helpful:

I got zebra sarasa pens few days ago and I like them, aesthetic is really good but I don’t like the quality of the ink much and I will not buy these again! I like them but they are not so good, to be hyped up. I particularly like Pentel energel better.
aesthetic - 10/10
Quality - 5.5/10
Grip - 10/10
Smear - 80%
Ink - 8/10
Smudge - 5%
I hope you liked the review thingy. These are my personal opinion, so don’t feel offended. Bye guys see y'all soon.

That other anon is ridiculous. Sure people shouldn't tell you how to run your blog. I'm not even sure what's going on. But people should be free to express their opinions of any given subject. I'm sure these people arent angry with you or being hateful, they just like your Bendy and don't want to see him change like every damn villain being morphed into some pink pony loving douche.

[ yeah and I appreciate that. I can listen to feedback and opinions and take it on board. And I can also ignore it and carry on doing what I want! I’m gonna take my ball and go home!
I’m greatful for feedback and know it doesn’t come from a place of hate. And if it does come from a place of hate, go fuck yourself this Bendy blog is 80% him eating desserts.
Folk really care about Bendy and so do I.

He’s not gonna become a good guy. He’s gonna learn how to get what he wants, manipulate and claw his way to the top. Villains are legit my fave characters of anything. Redeeming them ain’t my bag 👌]

What Made Nirvana Famous
(Industry Deconstruction) 

Anonymous asked exposingcourtneylove a question
How did a band like Nirvana make it in such a PR-dominated industry? It’s because of Dave and Krist’s fakeness, right?


It wasn’t was just one thing really. It was multiple elements -
+disclaimer - if you’re lurking and have never seen us before, please see our top topics/faq for context here of how he was used up and spat out by his band, his wife, management, and everyone around him - 

Timing.
Nirvana was debuting in an oversaturated industry that was due for another musical eclipse. Kurt’s unique talents and ability to breach the gap between rock, punk, and mainstream pop distinguished them as a band.


Natural X-Factor / Charisma / Brand Identity.
This is something people are hired to try to create but often fail to do because you can’t fake the real thing - As a reluctant frontman, Kurt naturally had the ability to get people’s attention because he has such an interesting, understated personality. He was sincere and that’s like lucky golden paint for anyone that’s trying to be an artist. It doesn’t happen that often, but when an artist comes a long who’s actually invested in their craft, amazing things can happen. That person, out the gate, gives off a vibe that distinguishes them from everyone else. They’re like a breath of fresh air and with the right amount of work and people around them, it can catapult them to popularity very easily. It will just take some time. (Continued)

anonymous asked:

Do you have any weight loss tips? Since starting college (I'm about to graduate) I've gained around 80 pounds and I hate looking in the mirror.

Hey hon,

I relate to this a lot. College is a tough time to prioritize health, and I know I struggled with it quite a bit. I also remember feeling that way when I looked in a mirror. But one thing I’ve learned since starting to prioritize my health was that hate is not a place from which to start a health journey. Every time I tried to lose weight because I hated the way I looked in the mirror, I failed. This is because negativity does not produce the motivation necessary to take care of yourself.

So the first thing you need to do is think about everything your body is and can do. Are you able to carry a heavy backpack across campus? Do you have stamina to go out and have fun with your friends? Look at your body and see what’s beautiful–not what could be beautiful “if only I lose the weight,” but what is beautiful right now (hint: all of you. All of you is beautiful). The beginning of my successful weight loss came not from “I hate this and want this to change,” but instead, “My body can do a lot for me, and I’m proud of who I am and how I look. My body deserves to be taken care of, which means I need to learn how to feed it and treat it right. I owe it to myself to take care of my body.” I also kept my goals mostly to myself, because getting unwanted input from other people was damaging to me. It was personal from beginning to end, and I still don’t talk about it that much (though I’ll talk about my fitness habits because it’s a hobby now). 

This might not be what you were looking for as far as specific tips. That’s because everyone’s journey is different, but this mentality is incredibly important. I used WeightWatchers, but that’s not for everyone. I do recommend FitnessBlender.com not just for their workouts but for their healthy and judgment-free advice on getting fit and eating clean. I can’t tell you specifically what to do, but I promise that if you can train your mind to love your body no matter what it looks like (easier said than done, I know from personal experience), you will get a lot farther and have better mental health as well as physical health in the long run. You might even find happiness looking the way you do and not feel the need to lose weight, which is still a win! Weight loss isn’t the be-all and end-all of health and fitness. Your mental health is just as important, and that’s the starting point of any health journey.
