minor salt incoming but like every single time i see someone complain about a black female character being love interest in the name of “””feminism””” i lose ten years off my life. i just. why are y’all so threatened. 

How to study effectively
  • Set yourself achievable goals.
    Never try to fool yourself into thinking you will read 10 chapters every day, run at least 5 miles, clean the whole house and manage 1 huge assignment in 1 hour.
    This won’t work, you know that and you’re just fooling yourself.
    Be realistic. Read 1 chapter, but actually read it, not highlight every word there. Read it again, make a summary of it, close the book, explain the material to somebody else or just write it down in bullet points. Do a 20 minute work out. Clean your table. Write 500 words of that 2k essay (or write 100 words, or 50, hovewer much you can actually write)\
  • Take breaks frequently, but not longer than 20 minutes.
    I am a big fan of pomodoro technique when studying because it gives me a sense of a timeline that doesn’t allow to check on my phone, on my email- anything. Once you decide to ‘i’ll rest for a bit’ that bit turns out to be 5 hours on tumblr and bam - you’re not sleeping at night because your deadline is due. 
    Set a timer for yourself. 25 minutes of reading, 5 minutes break. After 3 cicles make a big 15 minutes break. After another 3 cicles take half an hour. Set yourself the exact amount of time  you will work, and the exact amount of time you will rest. 
  • Turn off your Tumblr/Twitter/Youtube.
    No explanation necessary
  • Understand what you’re reading.
    I can’t stress enough about this one, because in my 4 years of studying in med school i realized just how many people try to memorize exactly what is written instead of understanding the concept.
    Listen, your memory will fail you. You’re not a perfect database that can reach for any data file that you need any time. People forget  things, this is how our brains operate. 
    Logic will never fail you. This is so important to understand to all of you in medicine, that if you understand the basic you can always draw conclusions from that.
    For example, it is no problem for me to answer the question like ‘Clinical manifestation of pneumonia’ because i understand the pathogenesis, and just draw logical conclusion. This is what clinical thinking is based upon, basically
  • Don’t do things just because everybody do them.
    Make notes for yourself, not for a pretty tumblr post. I used to spend a lot of time and money on those but they were less effective than messier quicker not very photo ready notes that i made, but those were actually more helpful.
    Notes are here to help you, not to make an appearance of studying.
    A lot of my classmates spend hours taking notes but once they come to class it’s like they just mechanically copied the textbook without actually realizing what they wrote. Which is why my point of understanding what you study is important in note taking, notes are just a quick summary you can go back to, some details you might have troubles remembering, they are helping you revise not read from when you are asked a question. 
Dan and Phil will get a dog when they are ready. Not when we are.

A dog is a huge commitment. It is not about cute pictures or fluffy domestic bliss. It is about being ready to care for an animal for the rest of its life. A lot of thought and reflection needs to go into deciding to adopt a dog.

Stop pressuring Dan and Phil to get a dog.

They may be planning to get one, we don’t know. They may be ready. But that would be them. It needs to be them, not us. We cannot decide when they’re ready for a dog. We cannot decide that they should get a dog just because it fits our view of their life. This is not about us, it’s about Dan and Phil and a dog. This is about another being’s life.

Stop pressuring Dan and Phil to get a dog.

What being autistic means to me

For me, being autistic means being extreme. There is no way to explain it differently.

I am extremely human.

In many ways, I’m very rational. I rely a lot on my thinking and well, I think a lot. I am extremely interested in getting knew knowledge and in discussions about almost anything I can get extremely opinionated. I am very direct and honest. I speak my mind. I love solving problems which is why I often get extremely involved in them. I can spend hours studying for college – because I love everything I learn so much. Because I like to understand things. I have an extreme eye for details, patterns and logical connections. I am very analytical and I love analyzing – I can focus so perfectly on it that it almost feels like I never think anything else. I am philosophical, I like taking many and different approaches. I rather collect and connect the details myself than see the whole picture. I think extremely often about myself and analyze me and my behavior a lot. I talk to others about it and take their opinions into account. I try to learn about myself and improve through that. I am dedicated to take as many details as possible into account and connect them with each other. And it feels like I’m making progress every day, even if it’s just a little and even though it sometimes might need a few setbacks.

But I can be extremely emotional as well. I am so unbelievably passionate about the things that mean something to me. I can see beauty everywhere, in the strangest places. I can feel deeply. Sometimes, I like people so much because they approach me in the right way. Because of how I can speak to them. I enjoy their presence. But I can get extremely overwhelmed, too. I stress easily and worry a lot – about myself, others and just life in general. Sometimes I feel so strongly that I can’t describe it or even become numb. I love deeply and I love a lot of things. With all my heart. In my honesty, there is often a lot of kindness as well. I can get really involved in music, stories, art and people, even to a point of dedication.

I am extremely sensitive. I hear too many sounds and they are way too loud. Some of them even hurt – like a police siren, or the sound of chairs moving across the floor. And all these noises are tiring. Light blinds me extremely. You can easily scare me or make me jump. I am extremely ticklish. I can be sooo picky about my food, you wouldn’t believe it. And I am very aware of every aspect of my body, even though I can be extremely insensitive to pain. Sometimes it all gets overwhelming – then I often need to either sleep or cry.

For me, being autistic means being extreme. Extremely human.

whenever a post blows up unexpectedly i like to pretend that i planned it that way and kinda lounge back in my desk chair with a glass of lemonade like “mmm, anything for the fans”

I’ve seen a handful of fanfictions where Keith has to wear a dress for convoluted mission reasons but I can never really get behind them bc the only plot I can accept for that scenario is: Keith is upset bc where will he hide his knives while wearing a dress, Allura shows him that he can actually hide more knives on his person now, Keith is thrilled & bursts into the control room yelling “Guess how many weapons I’m carrying!?”, Shiro becomes concerned when Keith reverently utters the phrase “I’m gonna stab so many people” and decides to have Lance go in his place, Lance is chill with it, No one has the heart to take Keith’s dress away and he wears it forever, The End.

I don't mean to sound rude but why would some of the boys attend university?Like what's the point they're idols anyway?

Eh? I don’t really understand the logic of this. So what if they’re idols? If they want to get college/higher education they can. Music is something you also study. More importantly, they can’t be idols forever.

okay I have a question for anti-Otayuri people…

I’ve noticed that some of you ship Mila and Sara

Why is that ship okay, but Otayuri is not?

I know Mila is 18. But Sara is 22.

The girls have been skating competitively for years. I think it’s safe to say that they’ve probably known each other since before Mila was 18. Especially because they seem pretty close in the show. They’ve probably been friends for at least a few years, since Mila started skating in the senior division with Sara. Perhaps since Mila was 15/16 and Sara was 19/20.

Yall seem to have a problem with people aging up Otayuri. Or with them waiting for Yurio to turn 18. Like yall argue that Otabek would still be a predator for “waiting” because that would mean he had romantic/sexual intentions with Yurio from the start or something.

But Sara and Mila probably knew each other when Mila was still a minor. Why is it okay to ship them just because Mila is 18 now? When they probably knew each other when Mila was still a minor. So going by your logic, why is Sara not a predator as well for “waiting” for Mila to turn 18?

Like this is a legit question, I don’t understand your logic, please explain?

I think I finally figured out the padawan hair. It was Qui Gon trying to save us all from Obi Wan's hotness with a dumb haircut.

Well if what Ewan looked like BEFORE the Infamous Haircut is any indication, I can completely understand his logic. Young Obi-Wan was a menace to the universe enough without the hair working in his favor. 

Obi-Wan: [grows out his hair] Hello, Master.

Qui-Gon: Aaaaaand let’s just get you right over to these scissors. Now. You know what would look great? A weird, tiny ponytail. Right here. 

Obi-Wan: But Master I – 

Qui-Gon: NOPE this is for the best, Padawan, I promise. It’s better for the universe this way. 

anonymous asked:

Can I ask why u think shipping Keith and Shiro is okay? I dont really care either way but I'd like to understand your logic?

well i ship them bc of their chemistry–i like how their relationship is in the show, there’s a lot of reasons but tbh i shipped them when i first saw how keith looked at shiro in ep1. i knew that i was gonna fall hard for these two. tbh there’s nothing wrong with keith and shiro’s relationship, there has been nothing wrong. all that it’s been in the show is trust and mutual friendship.

hhhhhhh

Are there seriously still people like that on tumblr? Seriously? Can you grow tf up please? I don’t understand your logic. If you don’t like the ship why don’t you just fucking ignore it? Nobody fucking cares if you don’t like it, I’ve dealt with so many people on the novahd tag, who came over and wasted their fucking life just to say “oh I don’t like novahd.” O-okay? Did we fucking ask? I mean I get i get it everybody has an opinion, but some people need to keep some in there stupid blabber mouths, because they’re unnecessary and stupid. And you know what I’m not gonna lie, I did that a long time ago, and I regret it, I even said sorry for it. But the fact that people STILL do this with shipping, is fucking retarded, it’s 2017, grow tf up. Don’t start stupid ass ship wars for no reason. I’ve seen enough ship wars I don’t want to see anymore. And I’ll even say I have a notp right now myself, and I hate it with a fucking passion. But do you see me going on other ship tags to say “Hey, I hate this ship, just wanted to tell you that.” No i don’t, because why would I do that when my ship is ten times fucking cuter anyways? *clears throat* Sorry..and I’m sorry if your dead ship won’t come back so you have to hate on others ships. Tch feelsbadman. Look do you need tips on how to ignore a ship and keep your fucking mouth shut so you don’t get it slapped off by karma? Cause I’ll help you…fuckin…we have other problems in the world and you’re bitching about a notp??? Some people..also don’t. say. sorry. After you just shit on something we like, it’s stupid and you clearly don’t mean it. Stay in your fucking lane. We’ll talk about our ship, and you talk about yours. Fair enough? Okay now shut up. 

my favorite thing on tumgle is when people get mad about my “Jolene The Song Is A Lesbian” posts and accuse me of “sexualizing a little girl” because “Dolly wrote than song about a little girl she met at a show” like uh my buds have you… have you heard the song? Have you like. Listened to it. At all? 

Like I don’t understand the logic behind “the Jolene in this song, whom is framed as a potential boyfriend-stealer and also the hottest shit on two legs, is clearly supposed to be twelve years old, which in and of itself is not a problem, but you saying that the song is gay is what makes it pedophelia basically”

Hi. I like anarchy as a theory, but I just don't understand how it would work logically. How would one deal with murder in an anarchist society? Who makes and distributes currency? How do we regulate capitalism (you have to at least a little of who knows what you're eating and because of monopolies you're paying through the nose for shit)? I'm just curious how you would solve these issues.

How are these issued solved now in a statist society? Not very well to say the least. 

Murders happen every day, moreso because of statism. By making non-violent, victimless, and consensual interactions, exchanges, and activities illegal. How many less murders and violent crimes would there be without the war on drugs, war on sex workers, and war on terrorism? 

The dollar has lost 99% of its value since the creation of the Federal Reserve, does that sounds like a good way to “distribute” currency? Why do you think there needs to be a monopoly on such of a service? Do you think people are too stupid to freely trade among themselves?  

How do you define capitalism? If you define it like me, why would you want to regulate voluntary interactions? Do you like creating criminals for victimless crimes?

Regulations, the statist kind, are only good at creating minimums, they never create excellence. While consumer regulation creates excellence while boycotting or refusing to buy minimums. Why strive for the minimums?

Who creates those monopolies that cause us to “pay through the nose for shit?” The state routinely makes it harder, if not impossible, for competition in many areas including farming and food production through IP, taxes, and regulations. 

Anarchism isn’t the solution to every single problem nor is it a promise that bad things won’t happen. 

It’s the radical idea that voluntary interactions are always better than forced interactions.
