1. We can wake up early and watch the bright shadows of the sunrise scatter across the wooden floors of our tiny apartment. We’ll cook breakfast together afterwards, singing our favorite songs as badly as possible as our cracked, throaty morning voices fade.
2. Let’s go hiking. We’ll go towards the end of the afternoon, when we need some alone time with nature the most. We’ll bring our dog and laugh around each other’s jokes as he chases after the high grass and noisy bumblebees.
3. On cold evenings we’ll paint. There’ll be black and white newspapers strewn across the dining room table as we joke and press into each other softly, focusing on our paintings almost as much as each other. We’ll pick the colors that draw us in explicitly and later applaud each other for not fretting about messing up, for taking in the uneven lines and slightly messy splatters with a warm kind of fondness.
4. I hope we go skating. I don’t mind what kind, I just want to make fools of each other as we grasp onto one another’s bodies for balance and wiggle around a rink full of other people who don’t seem to mind how grossly in love we are.
5. I’ll read to you and you can sing for me. I’m bad at speaking, I stumble and trip over my words, and you’re voice wavers and finds itself forgetting lyrics quickly, and I love it. I love our flaws as much as I love our passions.

Since I get asked a lot about where to learn more about the human brain and behaviour, I’ve made a masterpost of books, websites, videos and online courses to introduce yourself to that piece of matter that sits between your ears.
The Brain Book by Rita Carter
The Pyschology Book (a good starter book) by DK
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
The Brain: The Story of You by David Eagleman
The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science by Norman Doidge
This Is Your Brain on Music by Daniel Levitin
The Autistic Brain
by Richard Panek and Temple Grandin
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari (not really brain-related, but it is single handedly the best book I have ever read)
Born: 1978 Single? Considering he’s almost supernaturally hot, it should come as no surprise that Jensen Ackles was snapped up long ago.

Catch Jensen ghostbusting his way through season 11 ofSupernatural.
Hello everyone! this is my very first (important) post and i’d like to say in advance that you have probably heard about some of these and that they may seem lame idk but well, these are some things i have done to improve my language learning skills, i hope this helps! (if it does please let me know, it’d make me the happiest human alive ok)
Keep a notebook exclusively for your target language. If you work on a notebook that’s supposed to be for chemistry or literature you’ll certainly find yourself distracted. Get a cute notebook that makes you feel inspired or decorate an empty one you already have! I use a binder that i got at walmart and it has this really cool pop-art cover, i love it so much!
Get your own study place. A lot of us dream of a beautiful white desk in front of a window with amazing lighting but not all of us can get that, can we? (but don’t feel discouraged!) your bed? your dinning table? under a tree? your bathroom floor? anywhere can be a perfect study spot if you want it bad enough (as long as it’s safe and comfortable then you’ll be fine). Personally, i find it great to study in my dinning table because i can spread all of my stuff there and be as messy as i want. (oops)
Listen to music, watch videos, movies and read in your target language. Okay so, short story time: i am mexican and as you guys may or may not know we have quite an accent when it comes to english so, naturally, i was expected by americans to speak like that BUT i actually surprise ‘em all then i speak because my english doesn’t sound like that at all and the reason of that is me spending most of my time listening to music in english, watching all my tv shows in english and my having favorite youtubers be, in fact, native english speakers so all of that has accustomed my hearing to how all of those people sound and i just repeat their pronunciation. Also, reading in my target language has helped me improve my vocabulary A LOT by translating and googling things that i don’t know or understand. Keep in mind that you don’t have to read The count of Montecristo in whatever language you desire to learn, reading those love quotes/poetry thingys on tumblr will help you a lot until you’re ready to grab a book!
Disclaimer: i’m in no way saying that accents are a bad thing or something to be ashamed of but don’t we all just want to sound like natives?
Google everything. Allowing google to become my best friend is probably what has helped me the most. I mean, you could listen to every italian artist out there but it won’t help that much unless you actually get what the songs are about. You don’t need to write down the newly acquired information you get like 20 times, just read it like three times or until you understand it and move on, next time you see that word you’ll already be familiar with it and if you still don’t know the meaning, google it again! it’ll literally only take you about a minute or so and it’s all for your sake.
Resources. Resources. Resources. Even if you’re learning at a special your-target-language school, finding vocab sheets, verbs lists or just masterposts on your taget language (and actually reading them) you’ll see how great they are and how much they can help you improve and the best part? swear words that you won’t learn at school!!!!! jk the best part is that they’re free and all over tumblr. Just make sure you give their autor proper credit by reblogging and/or liking and you’re ready to go.
Spend at least half an hour studying everyday. A lot of people say that you should study for 10-20 mins but honestly, for me, that’s a really short amount of time but if you feel like it’s hard to stay focused for that long then start with 10 then 20 then half an hour and so on. Personally, i study for about 2 hours (including breaks, singing on-top-of-my-lungs sessions, snacks, etc) so it’s really not 2 boring hours of me sitting there copying vocabulary on my notebook.
Love what you do! I could write down a thousand tips for you but if you don’t feel passionate or at least slightly interested then it’ll never work out!
Last but not least, good luck to everyone trying to learn a language. Trust me, it’s gonna be one hell of a ride but it’ll be totally worth it! Don’t let people bring you down and be patient. Gros bisous a tous!
