not an actual library

Good news! My computer is fixed! Which means I shall be writing again! The fics I plan on making are all Voltron fics, two of them Lance-centric. Ah, better list them here so I don’t forget once I finish setting my computer back up, since I hook it to a monitor and bigger keyboard because the screen is cracked and the keyboard on the actual computer is broken.

1. Library AU. Basically crack-fic-ish. Squirrels are apparently demons.

2. Body Swap AU. The Paladins all get switched around and get the mental disability of the original body, so someone gets Shiro’s PTSD and another gets Lance’s anxiety and ADHD. I’m thinking Lance gets stuck in Pidge’s body, Shiro in Hunk’s body, Keith in Lance’s body, Pidge in Keith’s body, and Hunk in Shiro’s body. Klance, basically. Maybe? Possibly.

3. Sniper AU. Lance has held a gun since he was six, and damn can he shoot a target with the precision the likes of which you have never seen before, motherfuckers. But the team doesn’t really see that in action much, so a bunch of things happen and Coran Knows All™. Possibly Shance. (Yes, I multi ship a lot of things in Voltron. Shance, Klance, Shallura, Hance, Sheith, Klunk, Heith, Shklance *my personal favorite bc they all need love and they can do that together and it’s really sweet and yup im a poly supporter so fite me. Don’t like it or Shaladin? The door is right over there.* but I don’t ship Pidge with anyone. Pidge, to me, is the super smart badass little sister of the Voltron Squad.)

And that is what I shall be working on for the rest of the weekend! Gonna get started on the Sniper AU right now, and I might switch documents around when boredom hits during the story, but something might be posted tonight :)

anonymous asked:

Sorry to bother you, but please tell me you haven't abandoned in the library?


I always finish what I start, it just may take longer than I intended it to. Which is just as much a bummer for me as it is for you, I promise.

I’m actually working on the final update of In The Library right this very moment. Thank you for your patience (and the ask). I appreciate it!

Things to use as a bookmark:

  • Receipts
  • Clothes labels
  • Dollar bills (especially effective if you love outside the US because when are you going to spend that)
  • Post it notes
  • Scrap pieces of paper
  • Leaflets that got shoved in your face which you were too polite to refuse
  • Train tickets
  • Bus tickets
  • Just any old ticket will do really
  • Playing cards
  • Old birthday / Christmas cards
  • CLEAN tissues
  • Empty sweet packets
  • A bookmark which was actually designed to be a bookmark, if you are one of those rare people who actually knows where they are

Things not to use as a bookmark

  • Hair brushes
  • Your phone (you’ll need that)
  • The dog’s tail (dogs move)
  • A cat’s tail (see above)
  • Pens/pencils (unless it is extremely temporary)
  • Socks (this is weird)
  • Coasters (these are simply not good at this job)
  • Credit cards (YOU NEED THESE)
  • Homework due in the next day
  • Birthday / Christmas cards that need to be sent to someone else
  • Tickets that haven’t been used yet


  • Dog earing the page


edit: i know this has gotten a bunch of notes already ( and thank you!!!!!<3) but i still wanted to show you the cleaned up version of these sketches :>


May I present to you: My study space!

Generally, I prefer studying in front of a window, because plants or a scenery is the perfect thing to look at if I’m thinking about something. However, the layout of my new room did not allow that (my window is huge and a desk in front of it would have swallowed too much of the natural light), so the first time in a while I’m actually looking at a wall when studying at home (at the library I still pick the window seats).
I try to make up for the lack of view with posters and postcards (still a work in progress) and plants. On this picture you can see my ivy plant, which always keeps me company during the long studious hours. A few weeks back, I also got another succulent, which I have to show you another time.

Other important items: a cup of tea, a blanket and my study candle! I get cold quite easily, especially when sitting still for a long time, so the blanket helps me with that (and adds some extra coziness). The candle is from Muji and smells like “Hinoki Wood” (basically like a cozy wooden cabin in the middle of the woods).

So, which essential items do you need in your study space?

Ever notice how librarians seem to really be into cats?

That’s not a coincidence.

Have you ever heard of library cats? 

They’re domesticated cats that live in libraries worldwide.

It might seem like some strange new fad, but libraries and cats go way back – waaaaaaay back. 

These furry librarians were first hired around 3rd century BCE at the Ancient Library of Alexandria by a librarian named Petsis to perform an invaluable job: to protect the library’s collection from pests like mice and rats, which are still a bane on libraries everywhere to this day (no matter how clean a library might be).

Here’s a few examples of feline librarians around the globe:

Israel, at Gulbenkian Library; Jerusalem, Israel

Dewey Readmore Books, at Spencer Public Library; Spencer, Iowa, US

NEOS, at the Fairview Campus library of Grande Prairie Regional College;  Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada 

(his namesake is the name of the online catalogue program used by a consortium of public and academic libraries across Alberta; my university library during my undergrad used it, actually) 

Library Cat, at the University of Edinburgh Central Library; Edinburgh, Scotland

Kuzya, at the Novorossiysk Public Library; Novorossiysk, Russia

He’s required to wear a bow tie because as the Assistant Librarian he has to look dapper on the job. (No, really).

can I get some good vibes, pls?

I sent in my application (about a week ago) to a job at one of the libraries in Tulsa. it’s full-time, includes benefits, and pays a salary that would let me afford a NICE apartment. not just like, nice-for-our-broken-millenial-dreams


this bitch has a pool, a yoga studio, a fitness room with exercise equipment, a tv lounge / mini library / open kitchen space

every apartment has a 17 x 9 balcony I could put planters in for flowers

all stainless steel appliances AND pets are allowed

I would only be 1 mile (~5 min by car) away from the library, right next to the riverside with jogging paths, and tulsa is a very liberal city in a very red state!

so yeah, this could be life-changing and a huge improvement for me and I’d really appreciate prayer, well-wishes, just any sort of positive thought you could send out for me

Studyblr problems
  • Always typing ‘studybkr’ instead of studyblr on your phone 
  • Only remembering you were going to post when it’s like 11pm and the lighting is terrible 
  • Needing to actually follow your own advice so badly
  • Definitely clicking ‘save as draft’ but somehow tumblr ends up posting your half-finished post 
  • Needing to take a photo of your beautiful set up in the library but also not wanting to look like an actual weirdo
  • Finding a typo in your post once people have already reblogged it
  • Taking a stunning picture of your notes or study set up but have no one notice it
  • Needing to buy all of the stationery you ever see
  • Being forever jealous of everyone else’s handwriting and notes layout
  • Being in love with muji even though you’ve never even been there
  • Wishing that one blog you’re obsessed with would notice you
  • Being fundamentally jealous of everyone else’s urls
  • Hating yourself for quitting French when you were like 14 as all the langblrs are so amazing
  • Having a ginormous list of books you want to read but will probably never get the chance to read them all
