“We moved in packs together bounded by our oldest brothers
The night was ours for taking, rolling cigarettes and sneaking out
We sung our songs of youth and promised that we’d never lose it.” —

The words were becoming blurry on the screen and you knew you had probably written an entire page of incoherencies by now. Rubbing at your eyes with the heels of your hands, you took a deep breath and exhaled through your mouth, lips flapping at the force of the air leaving. Scratching behind your ear in frustration, you knew you had to go to bed and finish your paper the following morning. You were hopeless. Sleep was necessary, no matter how ahead you wanted to get on homework.

The party outside was still in full swing, but you were used to that by now. Your dorm was known to have the best parties in the campus and tonight was a Thursday. Tonight’s party was a prelude to tomorrow’s they said, but that didn’t make it any less rowdy than any other rave.

Overrated First Year Advice

Disclaimer: I don’t mean to discredit the posts that have these suggestions in them… However, I know that for people going into first year university, it can be stressful seeing pages and pages of “must-dos” and feeling like you have to do them all. As always, different things work for different people! 

Talking to Profs 

  1. Getting to know profs personally. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to profs personally, don’t feel like you have to. In upper years, it can be really valuable to know profs for recommendations, etc. but in first year this is less important. Profs also don’t usually mark your work in first year, so you don’t need to suck up to them for good grades. 
  2. Going to office hours every week. Going to office hours can be very valuable if you have questions about the course or an assignments. However, I see a lot of posts telling students to go every week even if they don’t have a question. You don’t need to do this unless you want to! Often times, profs will even request that you talk to your TA before them.
  3. Emailing the prof if you miss class. Unless you go to a very small school, the prof is not going to notice if you miss class. You don’t need to email them telling them why you were absent, you can just go to a different section of the lecture or get the notes from someone. (If you have labs/tutorials/seminars, the same does not apply!! Email your TA.) 

Studying and Grades

  1. Starting to study for tests six weeks in advance. This is one piece of advice that always baffles me. The semester is only 12 weeks long (usually), so if you have a quiz in week 6, you can’t start studying for it much before week 4 or 5. Also, there is no way you will retain the finer details of things if you learned them 6 weeks before writing the test. 
  2. Guaranteeing a 4.0. I see a ton of posts telling students how to guarantee a 4.0 average or straight As. But honestly, as much as you do all of the readings and go to lectures and follow all of the studyblr advice out there, you can still get a TA who won’t give any mark higher than an 80. Just try your best and know that even though getting high marks is great, it is not the only indicator of success in uni. 
  3. Sitting in the front of the class. This is not a necessity. A lot of people post that if the prof can see your face and remember you, you will get better grades. However, in first year, the prof doesn’t mark your papers usually and even if they did, your paper doesn’t have a photo of you on it. Also, they teach so many classes I doubt they just naturally remember the first three rows of each one and no one else. Just sit where you are comfortable and can pay attention and see, and you will do fine. 
  4. Choosing your major in high school or based on what job you think you will get. If you think you want to major in something and then it turns out you hate it, that is fine! Your major should be a subject you are passionate about and can get good grades in, not something that you chose in high school or will “guarantee” you a good job (although, its also okay if your major is all of the above). 
  5. Taking full notes on a topic before the lecture. If you are going to the lecture with a ton of info already, it is easier to get distracted or to feel like you don’t need the lectures at all. Instead, take notes in the lecture and then supplement them with notes from readings or bonus material rather than the opposite way. 

Textbooks

  1. Buying textbooks online. I definitely think that buying textbooks online can be a good idea, but sometimes it is just easier to buy them from the bookstore. For example, if you are not sure if a site is legit/the book will come in time/its the right edition, etc. it might just be safer to get it in person or buy it used on campus from an upper year. (Remember, you can probably sell it next year!) 
  2. Buying old editions of textbooks. If you have the two books side by side and can tell that they are very similar, go for it. But often times, two different editions are totally different and can just mess you up. Science and math books often have different practice questions, and even in social sciences and humanities, the content can change drastically in one edition. 

Lifestyle/Personal

  1. Buying extra storage and furnishing for your dorm. Make sure you do a virtual room tour or talk to someone about the layout before you buy a ton of storage. Most dorm rooms that I have been in have a ton of storage (mine has a closet, a huge desk, shelves to the ceiling, a dresser, and cabinets for extra storage). You don’t want to show up with way too much stuff. 
  2. Keeping 1000 things in your backpack. If you live on campus, you don’t actually need to carry every single thing on earth in your bag. It will get annoying carrying around a heavy backpack while walking. Unless you are going to the library for a huge study sesh or can’t make it back to your room all day, pack lightly! 
  3. Avoiding wearing “freshman clothes”. No one cares what you are wearing. People often wear pajamas or just track pants and a baggy t-shirt to class or the caf. If you like dressing up, that’s great! But don’t feel like certain clothes are off limits. 
  4. Living at home meaning you aren’t independent. Posts that look down upon living at home or going to your home university are garbage posts in my opinion. Being able to live away from home is a privilege, and many people are not financially, physically, or emotionally able to do that. If you are living at home, do not feel bad about it. You are still an adult and you are still independent. 

Hope this helps reduce some rising freshman anxiety! And remember, if you do want to follow any of the original tips, that is okay too. :)

“Seventeen Days” (Part 4)

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader (Fantasy/College AU)

Summary: An angel from heaven is sent back to Earth to prevent college senior Bucky Barnes from ending his life. But here’s the catch - she only has seventeen days to do it.

Seventeen Days (Masterlist)

“Siri, why does Bucky Barnes hate me?”

“I’m sorry, but I can’t find ‘why does Borky Burnes hate me?’ Would you like for me to -”

“Ugh, of course you don’t know! Useless!” you groan, haphazardly tossing your phone onto the couch behind. You slump over the coffee table littered with textbooks.

“It’s only Day 2, and you’ve resorted to asking a computer program for help. Good start, (Y/N).”

You bolt upright, heartbeat tapping a rapid staccato pattern as you meet the blue eyes of a certain grim reaper. Standing at the entrance of the safehouse is Steve, and he looks annoyingly delighted at your plight.

The blonde strolls over to the coffee table and grabs a few of the papers scattered on the coffee table, his brow furrowing as he takes in the graphs and numbers. “Why are you memorizing Calculus when you should be seducing Bucky Barnes?”

“It’s not a seduction!” you counter with a huff. “I may have hinted that I’m an expert at Calc with hopes of impressing him.”

“I’m assuming it didn’t work.”

“He hates me, Steve. The heavens have literally trusted me with the celestial mission of keeping him alive, yet he hates me! How am I supposed to convince him to not make the biggest mistake of his life when he hates me?!”

anonymous asked:

When will you stop begging people to their cash? In all honesty, get your life in order and stop relying on other people's work. If you honestly need the money you'll have to make some sacrifices

Oh, right, sacrifices… 

Like how I had to cut down my medication to half the dose, despite serious risk of my health, because I couldn’t afford a full dose? Or that I’m using cheapest possible pads when I’m on my period, despite the fact that they give me skin irritation and sometimes rashes on my fucking vulva? Or the fact that I don’t go to anything to do with university on campus because I need to save transport money, which has seriously effected my marks? Or the fact that I haven’t been able to do anything social in months? 

Or that I am living off canned foods and can’t even afford fresh vegetables or meat? Or that I go to churches that offer free staples despite the fact that they are openly anti-LGBT and I feel deeply unsafe and can’t be honest about a very big part of my life? Or that I’m pretty sure my wisdom teeth are coming up but I haven’t been able to see a dentist so I just gotta live with the fucking pain? Or that I’ve sold everything I owned that I could

Or that I have to spend an hour every morning calming myself down from a panic attack before leaving the house because I’m agoraphobic? Or that I spend HOURS EVERY SINGLE DAY looking for and applying for jobs, going to shopping centres with my resume, writing cover letters, changing my resume to suit the jobs, filming those fucking ridiculous videos that shops want you to do? Or that I have to deal with all that rejection every day… and know that it’s not because of my qualifications, it’s because someone is always cheaper, it’s because I’m just a bit too fat, because I have visible self harm scars, because of all these stupid little things? 

Or that this whole thing started because I was supposed to go to a fucking psych ward but my mother kicked me out instead, leaving me without the safety and psychiatric care I need, and also cut off from a huge part of my family, including her even though we used to be incredibly close? Or that I have to know that my father is paying for accommodation filled with fucking cockroaches and leaking plumbing but “can’t afford” to help me with anything else even though he’s a fucking rich engineer who lives overseas and is planning his second international holiday since this happened to me? Or that I have to accept that the people who I thought were always going to be there for me were actually selfish bastards this entire fucking time?

Or that fact that I have to put up with dickheads like you even though most of this information is in my fucking posts?

You’re right. I’m entirely at fault here and have been nothing but selfish. Thank you, o wise person without reading comprehension, I have see the error of my ways.

Anyway, donate here. For meds, food, etc. 

If you want to be more confident in what I’m spending the money on, you can check here for my essentials Amazon wishlist (toiletries, etc.), here for my health & mental health wish list for stuff to help me while I can’t afford to see doctors, and here for my non-essentials wishlist. Unfortunately my wishlists are pretty limited because not many things ship to Australia.

Summary: Professor Killian Jones’ history lecture gets a surprise visitor. (NOT StudentxProfessor)

Everybody taking one of Professor Killian Jones’ lectures knew Mrs. Jones.  Or, if they didn’t know she was actually his wife, they knew the blonde woman who he called “Swan” and who occasionally snuck into the room and made their professor’s always excited grin grow even wider.

She first appeared in the middle of his Ancient, Medieval, and Renaissance Political Theory lecture about three lectures into the class.  About one-third of the female population was drooling over the handsome professor with the accent talking about the Spartan system of government when the blonde woman slid into the room and sat in the chair behind his desk as he lectured in front of the projector.

The students who first noticed her assumed she was an older student who was either playing a prank or trying to catch the eye of Professor Jones by doing something bold. However, when the man caught sight of her, he merely smiled and asked, “Well, Swan, since you seem so eager to learn, can you tell me who first imposed this code of laws on Sparta?”

She frowned thoughtfully and responded, “Lucretius?”

He chuckled. “Lycurgus, love.  But I can tell you’re listening.”  He leaned down and pressed a kiss to the top of her head before turning back to his class.  “Let’s go ahead and take our break now.  Five minutes and be back here.”

The tattoo shop was lighter than expected, as you stepped in feeling sorely out of place. The sound of your heels on the floor made everyone else pause in their conversations, to study you. In your baggy jumper and tight black jeans, skin void of any tattoos; no unusual piercings on your lips or nose, you were almost too normal to be there.

“I’m here to apply for the opening of receptionist,” the guy sitting at the reception put down the large sketchpad that had been concealing his face but not his dirty blonde hair and pale forehead.
