mind switch

anonymous asked:

I hope Dylan is getting like a 90% cut of the 100-episode syndication money, if that ever happens. It is blood money that he has earned. Does he keep coming back just to appease TW's psychotrash stans, who would otherwise poison all his SM? Lbr, they kinda do anyway. I don't mind Paul switching sides just because of that. Less visible snarking at him for the flimsiest bs reasons.

Lol, but the over the top stanning is just too much!

  • AWHHHHH YAAAY I LOVE YOU UR CUTE 🐏🐟💗🎷” - Camila on Lauren


  • The word I’d use to describe Camila is hmm I’m gonna say cutesy, like also goofy. It’s like both, like the good kind of goofy not the weird kind. Like the cutesy kinda goofy” - Lauren on Camila


  • LERN JERGI. ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY. YOU ARE 18. THIS IS THE MOMENT YOUVE BEEN WAITING FOR. IF YOU STUCK YOUR TONGUE OUT IN THE AIR RIGHT NOW YOU COULD PROBABLY TASTE THE SWEET AND PUNGENT FREEDOM OF DRAGONFLY TATTOOS, NOSE PIERCINGS, AND VOTING RIGHTS. we’ve been through thick and thin in our friendship, and through those thick and thins I’ve gotten blessed enough to experience you as a person. ive gotten to experience your bomb music taste which I am SO HAPPY YOU INTRODUCED ME TO because we have the best time at concerts bonding over bands and there are so many more to come PRAISE JESUS. i can come to you about anything and expect the pure, honest, rare truth and I’ll always be there tell you it’ll be okay when you cry on my shoulder when you feel lonely or hurt. I’ve gotten to see firsthand your incredible sense of justice, when you see that something unfair or wrong has happened, you’ll raise your voice and fight for that person with a bravery that I, and many other people (although they might not admit it) wish they had. i love how passionately you fight for what you think is right and everyone should remind you today and everyday that it’s a strength and not a weakness. i can’t tell you what a comfort it is to know someone like you will stick up for me and have my back, i hope you know i will too. i love you always” - Camila on Lauren


  • Super cute candids taken by a random stranger always make good birthday post pics. HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY CAMILA CABELLO. YOU’RE LEGAL NOW YAYYY!!!!!! You are such a beautiful person inside and out and I’m so thankful that I get to call you my friend. Thanks for all the laughs, for being my shoulder to cry on whenever I’ve needed a friend, for giving amazing sound advice (even though you’re just now considered an adult by the government you’ve been there mentally for a while which I greatly appreciate) I wish you many more years of amazingness and I hope you had the best day with your family. You deserve all the love and happiness the world has to offer and I wish it all upon you for many many years to come. I LOVE YOU CAMZZZZ❤️❤️❤️” - Lauren on Camila


  • HAPPY 19TH LAUREN!! i remember the day you auditioned for X factor seeing a beautiful green eyed girl belt out an Alicia keys song so perfectly i feared for my life. i remember telling my mom "that girl can sing!! and she’s gorgeous too!!” and then you walked out and i told you i loved your shirt remember? HAHAHA. it’s funny how before we even knew how important we were going to be to each other, something in us knew and something in us will always know. i love how fiercely you defend your opinion, i love your strength, your bold independence, and your desire to live life fully. i love that we crack up at each other’s jokes even when nobody else gets them- and i love those moments where we get caught up in talking about a band or a book and we get lost in the conversation like two normal girls in high school that aren’t about to go do something ridiculous like go to an awards show. i will always be there for you when you need someone to vent to, when you want to talk about the overwhelming underwhelmingness of boys that break our hearts or the overwhelming overwhelmingness of when a kiss leaves your head reeling, when i back you up and you need someone to stick up for you, or when you just need someone to understand- we’ve done that for each other in the last 3 years and we will do that for each other forevermore. i love you so much !!!! happy 19th lern jergi!!!!! camila“ - Camila on Lauren

anonymous asked:

What if one day, MC is just feeling really romantic and fluffy (?) and just starts randomly slow dancing with RFA+ Saeran. How would they react and how would it make them feel? (I'm feeling really fluffy) ^^ Hopefully you're still taking requests! :3

A/N: Aaww! This request is really cute! ^^ ~Admin 404

*YOOSUNG:

               -The two of you were just walking downtown when you heard an outdoor symphony start to play

               -You gasped before grabbing his arm and practically sprinting towards the music, dragging him along

               -“M-MC! Wait! You-you’re running too fast! Where are we going!?”

               -He ran into you because you stopped so abruptly in front of the musicians

               -Looking around, he saw a fairly large crowd- people were either standing there and simply admiring the music, while others seemed to be dancing together

               -You turned to him, a wide smile on your face as you grabbed one of his hands, putting the other one on his shoulder

               -“Yoooooosuuuuuung! Please dance with me!”

               -His face turned a neon red- so red in fact that it could put Saeyoung’s hair to shame.

               -“H-here? Out in the open? With this many people around here?”

               -The soft smile you gave him melted him into a puddle. Without a second thought, he put his other hand on your waist and started to sway the both of you back and forth softly

               -You couldn’t help but giggle when his burst of confidence faded because he had absolutely no idea how to slow dance, so the two of you were stumbling left and right, bumping into people, but all around having a good time with each other

*ZEN:

               -He came home to some soft music playing in the living room

               -Among the music, he could hear the little pitter-patter of your feet moving around

               -So, out of curiosity, he took a peek around the corner to see what in the world you were doing

               -He watched as you spun about the room, switching between who lead the dance- you or the broom you’ve made your dance partner

               -His heart practically flew out of his chest as he watched how happy you seemed to be as you danced around

               -Couldn’t help but join you; the light blush that grew across your face when he appeared in front of you was not left unnoticed

               -One hand to your hip and the other intertwining with yours, he gracefully guided you around the room, avoiding the furniture with ease

               -Your smile made his whole world stutter and burst with joy! Seeing you genuinely happy, with something as little as dancing around the room with him, makes him fall more and more in love with you

               -The end of the song was nearing, and he decided what better way to end the dance than with a kiss

               -So he spun you around and pulled you back to him, holding your face gently before leaning in to place a small kiss on your lips, living in the giggle you let out afterwards

               -He loved the feeling of dancing with you so much, he plays the song on repeat for hours just so he can have an excuse to pull you into another dance

*JAEHEE:

               -You felt incredibly lonely at home, so you decided to visit Jaehee at work for her lunch break!

               -Placing a neatly wrapped lunch box on top of her paperwork, she jumped a little in surprise before she looked up at you

               -“Oh, MC! I didn’t hear you come in! What are you doing here?”

               -“Um, what does it look like, silly? I brought you lunch! I know for a fact you didn’t eat yet, so I’m here to make sure you do!” She raised her eyebrow in suspicion, waiting for you to finish. “Well… I mean, I might have been lonely as well?” you replied, shrugging sheepishly

               -As much as she wanted to get her work done, she also couldn’t deny having lunch with you

               -A visit from you was always relaxing, refreshing, and just what she needed to get through the day

               -The time spent after lunch was calm, listening to some musical soundtracks play softly in the background

               -But you jumped up when a familiar song came on, grabbing her hand to make sure she followed you up as well

               -One hand took hold of her hip while the other held her hand gently, pulling her closer to you as you took the lead, guiding her around her desk

               -She was blushing like crazy, the fact that she’s at work and you were being so loving, she loved it but it was so unprofessional, what if Jumin had come out and saw she was dancing with you rather than working?

               -The moment you kissed her cheek though, she decided she didn’t care if Jumin walked out, she was enjoying and basking in your love and affection and he could fuck off (though she would never say it out loud to his face)

*JUMIN:

               -He could hear the music playing from the living room but he was busy finishing up important business in his home office

               -The sound of your laughter is what finally pulled him from his paperwork hell

               -He peeked through the doorway, watching as you were swaying back and forth to some classical music

               -You spun around and he could see that you were holding Elizabeth in your arms

               -She was meowing in enjoyment, rubbing the top of her head against your jaw as you continued to dance with her

               -“Are you having fun, MC?” You spun quickly to watch him walk towards you, a smirk creeping across his lips

               -“How about you, Elizabeth? Are you enjoying yourself?” he asked as he reached to scratch the top of her head, she practically jumped up to meet his hand

               -“We’re having a lot of fun! But, I think it’d be a lot more fun if you joined us!” you shot him your award winning smile, one you knew from experience that he couldn’t deny

               -So you place Elizabeth on the floor before interlocking your fingers behind his neck, his hands making their way to your waist

               -He lead you all around the room with a thick aura of elegance, Elizabeth wrapping around both of your feet as the two of you danced

               -It got to the point you had to pick her up again and hold her between the two of you just so you wouldn’t trip

               -But the three of you spent the rest of the night dancing together as a trio, you and Jumin switching off on who gets to hold her, laughing when she would meow in complaint when the two of you danced alone

*SAEYOUNG:

               -“Saaaeeyyyoooouuuunnnng!” you whined, throwing yourself across his desk, he quickly grabbed his keyboard and lifted it above you before impact

               -“MC! I’m trying to finish this! We can play after I’m done!” he watched as your lips puckered into a pout “Oh come on, don’t do that!” In a huff, you crossed your arms and walked out, hearing Saeyoung yell an “I love you!” over his shoulder

               -You sat on the couch, just grumbling to yourself, not seeing Saeran sitting next to you

               -“Hey not that I really, you know, care? But you’ve been grumbling to yourself for a good 10 minutes now” the sound of his voice made you jump, your head whipping in his direction

               -“I’m starting to think we should put a bell on you.” “YOU SAT DOWN NEXT TO ME AND STARTED TO GRUMBLE, ASSHOLE”

               -You sighed and rested your elbow on the arm of the couch, holding your chin in your hand. “I’m just.. well it’ll probably gross you out, but I’m just really…. loving right now, and your stupid brother won’t pay any attention to me”

               -“You’re right, that is gross. But just go make him pay attention to you. Push him out of the chair, lean over and type random things on his keyboard, I don’t know. Just go be annoying somewhere other than here”

               -So you took his advice…well, lightly at least. You  pulled his chair away from his desk as he tried to type, his cries of slight distress made you laugh softly. “MC! I was working! What are you doing!”

               -You caught his hands while they were gesturing to the desk and pulled him up without any hesitation from his part. You wrapped your arms around his waist and laid your head against his chest before he could sit back down

               -The sound of his heartbeat kicked up in his chest as he wrapped his arms around you and set his chin on the top of your head. When you started to sway and move the two of you in a circle, a small chuckle come from the back of his throat

               -“Okay okay, I get it now MC, I’m sorry I was ignoring you. Work can wait a little bit if it’s for you”

*V:

               -Soft music is always playing during his galleries

               -He wants his guests to feel relaxed enough with their surroundings that they can truly feel the emotions behind his photos

               -So he has you help him pick songs to play because nothing is more relaxing to him than you!

               -The night of his show, he couldn’t help but admire you as you talked to his guests, walking gracefully, the true picture of elegance in his eyes

               -The song playing caught his attention and was the only thing able to pull him from his thoughts about you

               -He remembered you had told him it was one of your favourites when the two of you had put the playlist together

               -Making his way over to you, he stopped to bow in front of you, hand outstretched, looking up at you slightly with a warm smile on his face

               -“MC, would you please honour me with a dance?”

               -His smile only grew when he watched you look at the crowd now looking at the two of you, your face growing hotter every second before you nodded and took his hand

               -You found comfort from everyone’s eyes by burying your face against his chest as the both of you wrapped your arms around each other, you quickly found yourself gaining more confidence as he lead the two of you around the floor

               -With a graceful spin and a quick dip, the dance ended with you completely red and him smiling down at you with a face completely full of love, everyone in the room could just feel the emotion radiating off the two of you and clapped to celebrate

*SAERAN:

               -“MC, I don’t dance.” queue the high school musical song

               -“But Saeran, pleeeeease! Just this once? No one’s here to see! It’s just me!”

               -One of his eyebrows rose as he crossed both his arms and his legs, eyeing you suspiciously

               -“Just why do you want to dance with me all of a sudden anyway? Is Saeyoung here? Did he put you up to this?”

               -You threw your hands in the air in a huff, puffing your cheeks out before your hands landed on your hips

               -“No! Saeyoung isn’t here! Is it so bad that I just want to be close to the love of my life? And incorporate something cute couples do? Is it?”

               -He rolled his eyes before standing up and replacing the hands on your hips with his own

               -“Fine! Whatever! Just- I dunno, just put your hands somewhere,” he said, blushing and looking anywhere but at your face as you interlocked your fingers behind his neck

               -It was painfully obvious that he was stressing because he had no idea what to do, so you took initiative to start swaying the two of you back and forth

               -After a while, he got a little more comfortable with the idea of moving around the room, and he lifted his eyes from the floor to meet your own

               -“I guess this isn’t that bad… as long as it’s with you,” he said, lightly kissing the tip of your nose, “but tell Saeyoung and I’ll kill you.” You giggled in response before nodding and laying your head on his shoulder

               -“Whatever you say, ya big softy.”

Take this voltron au of my favorite show

like…i mean no disrespect but as someone who used to really admire steven universe’s art, i’m super disappointed in it now. like, su is the epitome of jumping the shark once you feel like you’ve reached a peak and “can’t improve”. like, they got super popular and got everyone on board, then they just stopped trying? at least that’s what it feels like, not only with the art but with the writing and the direction the plot is going in to. for example, here’s some of the earlier seasons’ art:

there was a nice emphasis on color contrast, the proportions were wonky at times but usually each character had a consistent body type

see how nicely proportioned steven and ame are here? they were allowed to be fat and allowed to be naturally proportioned

now all the characters look cramped and “”chibi””, everyone’s shorter and stubbier and they usually look different from shot to shot and you could say that’s because it’s board-based but in the earlier seasons i barely noticed aside from the occasional error or two. this “”chibiness”” leads to the characters looking. well. ugly and same-y. they look squished, and it feels like their foreground art should be background art

like, remember when amethyst had cat-like eyes? remember when pearl was tall and much more angular? i’m not saying the earlier seasons didn’t have their faults, yeah there was wonkiness with the animation and models but some of the old “wonkiness” made the gems feel more like aliens, you know? it felt like they were at least trying

and although when it was first revealed many people didn’t mind the style switch, i was one of the people who did mind although i got used to it eventually. i really fucking miss the pilot art not gonna lie. i don’t know why they switched it, maybe it was too expensive or too hard to animate, but goddamn, su looked its best in the pilot. all of the art was jawdroppingly gorgeous and i feel like the designs are more distinct in the pilot

idk, that’s just my opinion on it though, i might be nitpicking but it still bugs me

The Tiny Anthropologist's Advice for College:
  • 8 AM classes really aren't that bad: It may take some willpower (and coffee) to get there, but really, 8AMs aren't that bad. Get a decent amount of sleep the night before and you will be okay. If I can get myself and my 4 year old out of bed, get ready, drop her off at preschool and arrive on time for an 8am, you can too!
  • Taking classes that meet once a week for long blocks: If your learning style is such that sitting in a long lecture once a week is something you can handle, then these are the best classes to take. Personally, I have done 3 semesters of these and they have been my favorite and the ones I have gotten the best grades in.
  • Scheduling back-to-back class periods: These can be beneficial if you're the type of person that just likes to get everything out of the way at once. However, the downside is that you will not have time to eat between classes, and you may have to grab something and eat during lecture. If the buildings for your classes are far apart, this may not even be an option. Having breaks between classes is important to allow yourself mental relaxation and to eat, or catch up on work.
  • Don't be afraid to change your major: I've changed my major a lot, like maybe 8-10 times. The downside is that I am graduating a year late, but I took A LOT of fascinating classes and became a much better rounded student. Colleges know that student change their minds. If you switch majors 2-3 times, you won't end up behind. I'm a special case.
  • Take long-hand notes: You may feel strange taking long-hand notes while everyone else is typing away at their MacBooks, but long-hand notes are MUCH more beneficial as far as long-term memory goes, and you don't run the risk of being distracted by Facebook.
  • Dress appropriately for class: The college stereotype of everyone attending class in their pajamas isn't true. At least make the effort to throw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Your professors will notice if you look like a slacker in class, and dressing nicely (or at least not in your pajamas) shows them that you value your education and respect their lectures. People wear anything from casual clothes to ties to class, and everything inbetween. Don't be afraid you'll be overdressed, being underdressed is much worse (in my opinion).
  • Cultivate relationships with professors: ATTEND OFFICE HOURS. Close relationships with professors are massively helpful! Professors are much more willing to write letters of recommendation, look over rough drafts, or help you out via email at 10pm for students that they know than ones that they don't. Additionally, professors can be some of the most interesting people you will ever meet.
  • Attend class: Along the same lines as above, attending class is very important. You (or your parents) are paying for you to be there. You should try to get the most out of that by attending lectures that you have signed up for. Additionally, when it comes finals time and you need to boost your grade, no professor is going to help you if you haven't attended their lectures.
  • Invest in a water bottle: Nothing is worse than sitting in a lecture dying of thirst.
  • Invest in a messenger bag, tote bag, or backpack: You don't have a locker in college and chances are your dorm will be far away from your classes. Make sure you have something to carry anything you'll need, from books, to pens and pencils, to a laptop, or even snacks like granola bars.
  • Take notes: Do it. Your professor knows more than you, that's why they are at the front of the room. Listen to them, and write down what they say. Then study it. This is how you learn.
  • Utilize the library: Other than during finals week, the library is pretty much a guaranteed quiet place to study. Additionally, college libraries have databases for research papers, printing services, and a whole lot more for students.
  • Eat alone if you want/have to: No one will judge you. I promise.
  • Annotate your books: Especially if you are an English/literature major! It is a lot easier to simply take all of your notes in the novel than to copy down page numbers and quotes into a notebook. Textbooks (like science ones) can be annotated too!
  • Don't let anyone shame you about your major: Each major is difficult in its own way. Don't let anyone make you feel like you're taking an "easy" major or that they are more intelligent than you because they are in a "hard" major. STEM majors are not better than Liberal Arts majors, and Liberal Arts majors are not better than STEM majors. Ignore anyone who says otherwise. Ignore anyone who says your major is pointless. This does not only apply to fellow students, but family, friends, and the world in general.
  • Prepare for advising periods: Class offerings are usually posted before registration is open. Take an hour to become familiar with the requirements of your department and the individual college it is in (if applicable), as well as University/institutional requirements (IE at UMass, my "college" is the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, while my department is Anthropology. The university itself, SBS, and Anthro all have different specific requirements I must meet to graduate) and make a list of classes you would like to take that satisfy these requirements. Advisors will appreciate it.
  • Take advantage of campus resources: Many colleges and universities have numerous extremely helpful resources, such as employment services which will help with resumes, or counselors for when you're having a hard time. Use these. They are there for you.
  • Keep yourself organized: Notebooks, highlighters, a planner, flashcards, an expandable file, binders, folders, literally whatever you need to keep track of all your papers, assignments, due dates, and what you need to help you study is important for you to have. If you don't know what helps you study or what keeps you organized, try some different systems or do some research.
  • Keep your syllabi: Every semester I buy a different notebook for each class I am taking, and I always keep my syllabus folded in half in the back of each notebook. It has saved my ass numerous times.
  • Check your email or the course website before class: Nothing sucks more than being the only kid who didn't know class was cancelled, especially if you're a commuter and you drove in/took the bus to a class that isn't happening.
  • Give yourself plenty of time: Whether its getting to class, doing homework, or writing a paper, make sure you give yourself enough time. This is especially important for commuters. I can promise you that you will need more time to drive to class than you think. I live less than 40 minutes away from UMass and I still leave 75-90 minutes before class starts.
  • Understand your learning style: Do flashcards work best? What about mindmaps? Answering questions at the end of the chapter? Understand what allows things to sink into your mind the best, and utilize that method of learning.
  • Honestly, you can get by with SparkNotes: I was an English major. We had to read, a lot and I didn't always read the novels. I used SparkNotes and skimmed chapters. While I wouldn't recommend relying on this entirely to graduate, it can help in a pinch.
  • Skipping class: I know I just told you to go, and I do mean that. But sometimes you need to skip class and be lazy or frivolous, and that's fine. Don't make it a habit. I usually allow myself 1-2 "mental health" days per semester. HOWEVER you should be VERY clear on the absence policy of your professors. Some don't take attendance, and others will kick you out if you miss 3 classes. It's always in the syllabus.
  • It's okay to withdraw from a class: Getting a W is better than getting an F. If a class is too much for you, then it's best to step out of it. Most professors will understand, and most grad schools and jobs will too.
  • Be kind to yourself: It's easy to only value yourself through school, as in what grade you got on a test, or how your GPA stacks up against others but we are all human and sometimes we fuck up and sometimes we do poorly and thats alright. Learn from it and move on.
  • Take care of yourself: !!!!! This is very important. Eat as well as you can/enough, sleep enough, don't become addicted to or dependent on drugs/alcohol, exercise (even if its just walking to class), take showers, etc. Sometimes taking care of yourself takes a back seat to taking care of your grades OR to having too much fun, and neither is a good strategy. Yes, college is a time to assert your independence and have fun and party, but if you do too much it will begin to affect your grades and your health.
  • Try to get internships or research assistantships/independent studies: These will look great on your resume and a lot of them are quite interesting/enjoyable. It shows initiative, drive, and motivation! Professors usually have independent studies and career/employment services (if your campus has that) can help with internship placement.
  • These are basic things that I have learned during my college career. I'm sure I could come up with more, but I hope this is helpful!

Yeah, none of us on Tumblr do this.

It’s kind of funny, ya know?
I kept telling myself and others;
“I have a feeling 2017 is going to be a good one”
This very real very deep feeling -
And just like that,
something in my mind switched.
A voice in my head appeared,
one that I hadn’t heard in a very long time.
It said something that was nothing profound,
yet it hit me at a hundred miles per hour;
“Why not MAKE it a good one?”
It’s a basic law of physics, really.
For every action there is a reaction.


Expectations set up failure.
So don’t expect anything.
Simply act.
