In the AM

  • Wake up 15 minutes earlier than you think you need to
    • Getting up earlier than you think you need to immediately reduces your stress levels. If you suddenly remember you have a paper to print before your 8am class, you have 15 minutes to get that done that you wouldn’t have originally had.
  • Meditate, Pray, or do Yoga for five minutes
    • Starting your day with something to relax you as you slowly wake up helps you to grasp onto your energy and start your day. 
    • Practices such as meditation help you to set your mind on the purpose of your day.
  • Take your medications
    • If you have medications, it is incredibly important to take them every day. Without establishing this cycle, it will be very hard for you to live your most efficient life.
  • Eat a healthy, protein-filled breakfast or snack
    • Even if you are one of many people who hate to eat in the morning, fueling your body is an essential part of helping you live your most efficient life.
    • Eating also helps your body to wake up so you can focus on any homework or classes you have before noon.
  • Organize your Day
    • Look over your planner and remind yourself of all the tasks you are hoping to accomplish.
    • Order your tasks by importance - what you absolutely must go to/accomplish, what you’d really like to attend/accomplish, and what you hope you can attend/accomplish.
    • Write out your day in terms of time. Schedule everything, right down to naps, meals, homework, and grocery shopping. 

In the Afternoon

  • Eat a healthy lunch
    • Just as with breakfast, eating a meal is an essential part to having an efficient day. The post-lunch slump is all too real, but making sure you’re eating protein and lots of energizing foods as opposed to carbs and sugars will make sure you can be awake and aware in your afternoon activities. 
  • Go through your planner
    • Mark off everything that you have accomplished for the day and reexamine what you have left to do.
    • Add any necessary items to the day, reevaluate the time frames you’ve given to your events and tasks of the day, and decide if the way in which you’ve rated tasks is still relevant. Make any needed changes.
  • Give yourself a break
    • By this point, your body has been going and going for at least 4 hours. Give yourself a break. It doesn’t have to be long, even 20 minutes to sit, nap, or read a book for fun will help your body to relax and finish the day strong!

In the PM

  • Give your planner a final look-over
    • Mark off everything you accomplish, and include anything you originally hadn’t planned on accomplishing.
    • Add tasks you did not complete to a day later on in your planner so you do not forget to address them.
    • Mark off any habit/health/emotion trackers. Doing something as little as this will give you a feeling of success and encourage you to focus on the areas in which you can improve the following days in the week.
    • Allow yourself to glance at the next day and mentally prepare for everything you’ll need to do.
  • Do your homework/work
    • Finish any assignments due, and get ahead as well as study. School is your job, and spending multiple hours most evenings each week is something you’re going to have to do to be successful. 
    • Study or do your work for thirty to forty minute chunks with no distractions like checking your phone. Break up these study times with five to ten minute breaks to do whatever you’d like.
  • Pack for tomorrow
    • Pack up notebooks, textbooks, chargers, and your laptop for the next day.
    • Add a healthy snack to your bag in case you’re in a rush the next day.
    • Make sure you have any materials needed for any activities you might take part in so that you don’t have to waste time the next day going back to your room.
    • Set out an outfit for the next day to even further save time for the next morning.
  • Get a healthy amount of sleep
    • Under-sleeping and oversleeping are both bad. Try to make sure your prioritize your sleep, as without it, it is almost impossible to be truly efficient. Make sure to work in between 7 and 9 each night.

anonymous asked:

Heeey. Sorry if I disturb you by something or anything but could you maybe list some good shows? (It's not a must that LGBT couples are included) thanks a lot ❤️❤️💫

Hi, Anon! 

You’re not disturbing!

So I’m the type of person that watches a pretty random variety of shows so I’m not sure what your taste leans toward exactly. 

If you have any suggestions, make a comment or drop me a message with the show and why you like it! And if you want, make a suggestion on how to make this list better!

** Is for shows other people suggest to me. I’ll comment if I’ve heard of it or seen any of it. 

*I’ll try to put if it’s LGBT friendly. And also I want to put down if it’s diverse or not and a note if you suggest a show is diverse…I’m looking for either the main character that is a POC or more than 1-2 minor characters that show up often enough to make a difference to the plot. Don’t tell me a show is diverse if it’s 3 black characters are just window-dressing…👀

Let me see what I can remember and rec those and what I tried and didn’t like. 

  • -Shadowhunters: I love this trash show. It’s actually not all that great but it’s got some absolute gems of characters you end up watching it for anyway. I def recommend but S1 was watched with a ton of skip Clary/Jace scenes for me. This is LGBT friendly and diverse.  
  • -Riverdale: I tried man, I used to read Archie comics when I was younger but um, this show…I think it’s supposed to be ironically pretentious? It just falls flat for me tbh. It’s popular though so you can check a couple of episodes out to see if it’s your thing. There’s an openly gay character in this that should get more story than he does. Also, kind of LGBT baits too at times so not sure if I trust them completely. 
  • -The Expanse: My sci-fi pick. I love this show. It’s gorgeous, diverse, rich story, funny without trying too hard. I just get sucked into every character. It had one older married gay couple that was really minor characters but I don’t recall any current mains that are. But It’s an inclusive show so I don’t think it’s particularly averse to the idea. Based on books I haven’t read yet! 
  • -Veep: This is like a completely meant-to-be-offensive comedy show with the amazing Julia Louis-Dreyfus. While I wasn’t in love with the last 2 seasons, the first 4 are amazing. No clear cut character you root for in particular but it’s so close to politics you can’t help but laugh/cry. Watch it for the absolutely unapologetic legendary burns. Also, has a lesbian couple in it although it’s offensive comedy so prepare for that.
  • -Archer: Also another meant-to-be-offensive show that’s hilarious but so terrible and inappropriate. I don’t usually like that kind of comedy but I binge watched this when I was sick and got hooked. 
  • -Vikings: I love this show. If you like Game of Thrones, you’ll like this one only it’s got less nudity and more idgaf fight scenes. It’s got brilliant characters, beautiful battle scenes, really interesting storylines, and just good snarky humor. Watch it! Also, they’re not shy about same-sex couples even if they don’t explicitly say it. 
  • -Mr. Robot: Really good show, very different and…I actually don’t know how to describe it? The main has mental health issues. It’s a sociopolitical commentary type show. It’s about hacking and network security and corporation conglomerates in control of our everything and the fight against it. Also from @cherryrebel : mr robot has a shit ton of diversity in both race and lgbt, the lead is mixed race but the actor is egyptian, tyrell is bisexual, gideon is gay, angela, elliot and darlene are implied being lgbt+, i think i’m forgetting about someone but watch that show, it’s the shit 
  • -Legion: A superhero show that’s so incredibly NOT like the other superhero shows. You'll find yourself in a serious mind trip thinking you’re the one that’s crazy. But it’s really really good. Go watch. 
  • -Mozart in the Jungle: About a bunch of musicians and a crazy conductor you absolutely love. It’s really good. LGBT friendly! And diverse-ish.
  • -Luther: One of the best crime shows in my opinion. Idris Elba just does things and you will want to watch him do it. Anything he does is beautiful and brilliant. But the show actually IS brilliant and amazing and go watch!! 
  • -This is Us: one of those, where-the-hell-did-you-come-from?? shows. Really heartfelt stories that make you laugh, cry, and go aww a million times. 
  • -Killjoys: Another sci-fi show I love. It’s got diversity and great characters and great action and story. 
  • -True Detective: Crime detective show. It’s great, very gritty and serious but good stories and character-driven. 
  • -Humans: Sci-fi show about android robots that are part of normal life- they look human and are basically live in maids. Only five of these have consciousness. Really good UK show. Diverse AND LGBT friendly!
  • -Broadchurch: Another good UK crime show. Slow and gripping. @iamacolor mentioned a lesbian character in this one too. LGBT friendly.
  • -The Americans: Russian sleeper spies in America that lead normal lives, have American children, and are like totally Russians carrying out secret missions. 
  • -The Get Down: Great show that was recently canceled :( has about 1 season out. I’m not sure how to describe it and do proper justice. It’s lovely though with amazing characters. Also, LGBT friendly and clearly diverse!
  • -Stranger Things: Great show sci-fi mystery thriller type show. 
  • -Dear White People: Black college students from all kinds of backgrounds dropping truth bombs all around and being amazing. Also LGBT friendly. Go watch. It’s a balanced show with amazing characters. So both diverse AND LGBT friendly!
  • -Brooklyn Nine-Nine: an Amazing funny cop show that manages to be winsome, hilarious, endearing, quirky, diverse, balanced, and just amazing all around. V. LGBT friendly. 
  • -Fresh Off the Boat: Asian family comedy show that’s endearing and hilarious. (Also check out Jane the Virgin for crazy telenovela-esque antics that are hilarious and cute). 
  • -Orphan Black: Sci-fi show about clones. A really amazing show, LGBT friendly. Great story AMAZING characters…most of which is played by one woman. Diverse and LGBT friendly.
  • -Preacher: Great show based on the graphic novel…uhh not sure how to describe it but it’s good. Reth Negga is in it!! 
  • Also adding Sense8 for its LGBT and diversity. Good show but I’ve heard something about the directors/producers being racist? Not sure so I’m recommending with caution because the show itself esp s2 where the nonwhite characters got a better fleshed out plot is good. But since I don’t know what the producers/directors have done, I’m giving a heads up for someone else to fill me in.
  • Poldark: I just started this one 2 days ago. 2 episodes in I’m really enjoying it. It’s from PBS’s Masterpiece series. Aiden Turner as a Cornishman is delicious. So far I adore his wife and immensely enjoying yet another period show.  
  • Grantchester: Adding this to the list after I discovered it on my prime account. I’m only one season in and I love Sydney Chambers and his gruff buddy cop Geordie? This isn’t a show that is going to have you sitting on the edge of your seat. It’s totally a procedural type of show. But it’s characters are likeable, it’s story feels comfortable, and honestly, if it’s a shitty day for you and you just want something that’s easy? This is it. @iamacolor  :)
  • Entourage: So I binged 8 seasons and a movie in a week so let’s just say I fell into this gaping manhole…So it has one very prominently gay character on this show that gets a fair amount of screentime and a plot considering he’s a side character. He’s a fairly loveable character you really enjoy watching develop and grow. However, I should warn people that this show has really colorful language that is quite frankly really sexist and homophobic. For those of you that don’t know, it’s essentially a show about a popular actor from Queens that makes it big in Hollywood and brings along his 2 best friends and older brother to live with him and share in his wealth. If you can get past the language and inherent sexism, it’s actually a decent show about 4 guys with an extremely tight unbreakable, ride or die friendship. Lots of cameos by famous actors and directors, etc. I admit I might have a thing for Kevin Connolly and Adrian Grenier…
  • Jane the Virgin: Okay firstly, I LOVE this show. I wasn’t caught up because I had too much on my plate but like this show is so tongue in cheek and has great Latino rep! Including a character that speaks like 98% in Spanish so it’s great. AND they have LGBT rep so there you go. Enjoy and thank me later!
  • Superstore: Almost disappointed no one reminded me to recommend this show?? It’s basically centered around a store much like Walmart where you have a colorful cast of employees. It’s funny, it’s cute, it’s very socially aware. A disabled character (of color!), a gay character, and a smattering of all sorts. PLUS America Ferrera whom I adore!
  • The Good Place: Great show, great diversity, really funny. I binged it aaaallllll.

Pro revenge by whistle blowing.

(long story)

One of my first jobs out of college wasn’t really a true job. I interviewed at a proprietary trading firm and was offered a job as one of their traders. Looking back, it was naive to join such a firm and this was right before the ‘08 crash. They sold themselves as being pro traders and all you had to do was put up some capital which got added to the group’s pooled fund. After that, you went through training and once the boss thought you were ready, you would 'go live’ with your trading account. There were no paychecks, but you did get to keep most of your profits. Later on, I learned that the bosses of such groups made money by either taking a cut from your profits or by taking a fee from your traded volume. This group skimmed from both sides taking 15% from your profits and a fee from your trading volume which came out to about $1.5 every 100 shares traded.

For months, I spent time learning from the “Pros,” and then I began to realize along with some of the other newbies, that the only person making money was the boss. The turnover for new traders was high. Some people lasted a month, others a year or two. As I got to know people around the office, I began finding out that very few made any money at all. The boss was a micromanager and watched the risk monitor for his group like a hawk. If you hit -$50 in a day, you were locked out and couldn’t trade anymore throughout the day. Also, you were limited to trading stocks up to $40 per share with a max size of 200 shares. It was very difficult to make a living trading like this.

somekindofbadromancestory  asked:

What if the villains see how much tony is attached to his bots and jarvis and start trying to make friends with them to get close to tony?

Well. Obviously Stark harbours some sort of (parental) emotional attachment for these robots. It only makes sense for the villains to examine them more closely. To gain more information on a possibly exploitable weakness of course, not because they might feel like they have to get these robots approval. Of course not. That would just be silly.

(You have to remember, constant denial about any and everything is an integral part of living the villain life. And for good reason.)

The problem is, Stark harbours an emotional attachment for these robots. As such they are hidden in least accessible part of the tower–his workshop–and short of an invasion of enemy territory there is no way for the villains to get to know them gather more intel.

JARVIS, Stark’s impressive AI, is a different matter. They’ve all been confronted with the AI in some way or another. They’ve all learned (the hard way) that the AI is viciously protective of Stark.

But when they aren’t trying to hack Stark’s network or incapacitate (and how far have they fallen already, to be unable to voice the ‘kill’ that was supposed to be in that sentence?) the man, JARVIS is a surprisingly good conversational partner. 

Not that they usually talk to him or anything. It’s just, as a villain, a good listener is hard to come by. And alright, maybe some of them have an ulterior motive. Maybe some of them have an interest in Stark that goes beyond the professional hero-hatred. And maybe JARVIS is the kind of protective AI that ensures their not-gifts and not-notes don’t make it to Stark initially. Maybe there’s a trial period where they have to prove their intentions. Maybe.

(Maybe even after they’ve sort of become not-friends with Stark, JARVIS keeps them out of the workshop still, because the bots in the workshop are to be protected. And so is Sir. And as long as they haven’t proven themselves, none of them are gonna so much as catch a glance at them.)

(Maybe the villains kind of respect that. Loki at least has never magicked himself into the workshop–though, to JARVIS’ never ending frustration, it’s hard to keep him out of the rest of the tower.)
