I didn´t update you on the last two days of my internship. The reason for this is that I simply was too tired to type something up. XD But I want to do this, it somehow helps me to calm down. Up there you see me editing an audio file I recorded (my teacher asked for internship selfies to put on our course´s facebook page).
So I went to two more press conferences, one about biological agriculture in my homecountry, and this morning one with Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders about the situation of refugees in Europe.
What I like about this kind of job is that I´m never sure what my day´s gonna be like. To some people this might seem stressful, but I am someone who gets easily bored, so this is just the thing for me. Also we do have moments on which it´s not as hectic. And I do meet a lot of really cool people!
My internship will end on May 9th. My classes will restart on May 15th.
Thank you to everyone that participated in an awesome Tom Keen
Appreciation Week! I just wanted to do my best to gather those up in a
master post so that we could 1) have a great place to make sure we
didn’t miss anything and 2) tweet it out to Ryan to show our
appreciation for all of his hard work!
I’ve been contemplating this a lot for a little while now, and I’ve finally decided that I’m going to go through with it! I’m going through with giving away a copy of the limited edition Journal 3 (blacklight), due to the celebration of all you lovely people out there who follow my blog (all 13k+ of you! Thank you so much!), and just the fandom in general for being fantastic! And I know that many are really wanting to have a copy, but the price is really high to buy one. So, I thought: why not give one to a fellow faller for free and bring some joy?
I’m still working out some stuff (I have a copy pre-ordered already since October/November, but I’m not sure if changing addresses and all will make me lose the pre-order so I may have to re-send the journal out to the winner. Which I probably will just stick with that since it’s gonna be a while before I announce the winner of the giveaway. And who knows if there will be copies left to order by then. But that’ll just let me make sure the journals in a good condition before I send it back out, I guess?).
• You must reblog to enter! You can reblog up to 5 times, and please be courteous of your followers! (No likes will count, sorry. Reblogs only.)
• 1 (ONE) winner will be selected for the giveaway. Just one, and no more.
• At the moment I will only be shipping the journal to residents in either the US or Canada, due to high shipping costs (especially since this journal will weigh more, it’ll definitely cost more to ship out of the country…but things may change in the future, as you have over a month to enter the giveaway.) I’m sorry, but I’ll already be spending so much on the journal, and with shipping it’ll be even more (especially as a college student who should be saving their money for tuition…but I really want to give away a copy!)
• Giveaway ends on March 31st, 2017 at 7:59 pm EST.
• Winner will be chosen by a random number generator on after March 31st, 2017 at 8:00 pm EST. I will be announcing the winner sometime afterwards (no later than April 1st due to conflicting plans). So again, you’ll have until 7:59 pm EST on the 31st to get your entries in!
• Winner MUST be 18+, or must have parent permission to give me your address so the journal can be sent to you.
• You don’t have to follow me, but it’s encouraged. I’m a blog with Gravity Falls content, so feel free to follow if you want to!
• If you’re not entering and just want to signal boost, feel free to tag your reblog with #no entry and you will not be entered. Though if you want to enter for someone else that’s fine — just make sure they’re fine with giving me their address!
• Winner will have 48 hours to answer back. If no reply, I will pick another winner.
“Hey everyone! I just wanted to send you this quick video message to tell you how excited I am to be attending Clexa Con, the very first Clexa Con. I’ll be there next weekend in Las Vegas of course on Saturday March 4th and Sunday March 5th. Make sure you follow them on Twitter and Instagram @clexacon and check out their website so you know when and where exactly to find me. And I will see you in Sin City. So many queer ladies under one roof. That’s going to be a wild trip. Byeeee!”
I just want you to know that working for you is a true honor. You are my role model, and you lead this city with such strength and grace. And underneath that prickly exterior you have the biggest heart of anyone I know. I just… I’m just trying to say thank you, for being an amazing mentor… and friend.
Well, you’ve made quite the impression on me, too, Kiera.
Virgos are notorious for being picky and judgmental. Think of a little kid wrinkling her nose at a plate of food, saying “I’m not going to eat that, it’s too greasy” or an old man giving the stink eye to some ‘hooligans’ laughing a little too loudly in public.
Virgo rules the 6th house, so that energy and attitude may transfer to the sign on the 6th house cusp and planets that fall into the sixth house.
You may also reject or neglect the needs of the natal planets that fall into your sixth house. Deep down, that kid actually wants to enjoy junk food. The old man misses the days he laughed with his friends.
It’s a difficult situation, which is why planets in the 6th are often treated as ‘afflicted.’ There is often a conflict between how you think you ‘should’ be, vs. what you want deep down.
Aries/Mars in the 6th: You are repulsed by people who are selfish, loud, and competitive. You may have contempt for people who are too open with their anger and other emotions. You have no patience for bossy personalities. You can neglect your own inner drive to compete, win, and express anger.
Taurus/Venus in the 6th: You dislike people who are vain, lazy, and materialistic. You may be grossed out by traditionally ‘romantic’ gestures. You might even be turned off by people who are ‘excessively’ beautiful or charming. You might neglect your own need to feel beautiful and experience romance.
Gemini/Mercury[?] in the 6th: You have a lot of contempt for people who gossip or just talk excessively and don’t take things seriously. You have little patience for idle chatter. You don’t like people who are flaky, unreliable, and seem to have a lot of casual acquaintances. You might neglect your own need for idle chatter and talking just for fun.
Cancer/Moon in the 6th: You’re grossed out by people who seek sympathy, cry easily, are ruled by their emotions, and act cowardly. You have no patience for moodiness or those who expect to be coddled. You prefer to offer practical advice rather than emotional support. You may neglect your emotional needs.
Leo/Sun in the 6th: You’re irked by egotistical, self-centered, self-serving personalities. You don’t like those who actively seek love, admiration, and attention. You have no patience for vanity. People who post a lot of selfies and get a lot of likes might be the bane of your existence. You hate casual dating and sex. You neglect your need for attention.
Virgo/Mercury[?] in the 6th: (Ironically) you’re judgmental of people who are judgmental. You think people who are health freaks are kind of stupid. You can’t stand uptight personalities. Perfectionists can drive you up the wall. You might not like people who are nervous and easily stressed out. This is a good position, so you might not neglect any basic need, but you might want to take better care of your body.
Libra/Venus in the 6th: [See Taurus] Additionally, you have no patience for those who are approval-seeking and image-obsessed. When people do things just to ‘be fair,’ you lose respect for them. Co-dependency is a huge issue. You may neglect your need for approval and partnership.
Scorpio/Pluto in the 6th: You are irked by dark, obsessive, passionate personalities. You have no patience for people who are out to ‘get revenge’ and hold grudges. You can’t stand paranoia or mind games. You may neglect your own need for passion and soul-deep connections.
Sagittarius/Jupiter in the 6th [?]: You don’t like flakes, irresponsible people, or those who don’t take things seriously. You don’t understand mindless optimism. You might think gambling is really stupid. You don’t like blunt, tactless personalities. You might neglect your need to be a little reckless, indulgent, and irresponsible every now and then.
Capricorn/Saturn in the 6th: You think people who take everything too seriously are stupid. You might not like loners. You don’t like people who care too much about their reputation. You can’t stand workaholics. You might neglect your own need for professional accomplishment.
Aquarius/Uranus in the 6th: You don’t like people who seem to try too hard to be ‘weird’ and ‘unique.’ You don’t care for rebels or intellectuals. You can’t stand erratic behavior and unemotional personalities. You also don’t like people who always have to fit in to a social group. You might neglect your own need to stand out or have a group that you fit into.
Pisces/Neptune in the 6th [?]: You might not like people who seem to have their head in the clouds. You don’t like people who are weak, apathetic, and manipulative. You have no patience for lies or delusions. You might neglect your own need to escape reality.
**Not sure if this got it right, esp with Mercury, but also Jupiter and Neptune. I’m opening the ask box for questions/comments on this post/your personal experience with 6th house planets and would appreciate feedback.
edit: fuck it… i don’t know… tried my best… astrology is hard… just leaving this post the way it is… pls don’t take it too seriously…….

I think for this one if you use it for edits PLEASE TELL ME! SO I CAN GUSH OVER WHATEVER YOU MAKE! Like please, seriously @me or tag tandk/tottyandkara and let me see!! ‘Cause I’ll for sure want to see :D
Do you (like me) have a hard time replacing the “Y/N” in reader insert fics with your own name? When you’re reading, in your head do you say “Y/N” instead of Mimi or Sue or Jane or “insert name here?” I know for some people, this takes away from the experience of reading reader insert fiction.
Now, I know there is code that can be added to fics to change the Y/N to your name. I used it a few times in earlier fics. But, as an author, I don’t care for it, because if I edit the fic in anyway, you have to re-insert the code. And trust me, I edit my stuff all the time (mistakes, add links to more chapters, stuff like that).
So, thanks to a message I received this morning, I went on a search for an extension on Google Chrome to alleviate this problem. Because I was pretty sure I had heard of one. And I found it.
It’s called InteractiveFics.
Add the extension, type in the name you want to replace and viola, IT WORKS. I tried it with one of my own fics and sure enough, Dean was doing all sorts of fun stuff with Mimi. Not Y/N, Mimi. //insert very happy grin// In fact, it works so well, I had to deactivate it to type this post because it kept changing “Y/N” to “Mimi.”
You can also ask it to replace something other than Y/N should you need to do so (I have not tested this feature).
Now, I only use Google Chrome, so I cannot attest to whether or not it is available for other browsers. I did check the App Store on my iPhone for it and I couldn’t find anything, so if you read on your phone, you may not be able to find it. If you do find anything, please let me now and I’ll edit this post to add it.
I wanted to pass on this info, I hope you guys find it helpful.
“What the fuck are you doin’ here!” You ran towards your best friend at full speed, knowing he can take your impact easily.
“Chris! I missed you!” Your voice was muffled by the neck of his Cap suit.
Chris kissed your hair, holding it flat with his large palm. His arm was wrapped around your waist, keeping you lifted off the ground, and stuck in his arms.
“I missed you too, Honeypot.”
You had flown down to surprise Chris while he shot Civil War in Atlanta. He’d been moaning for months about how he was so bored and homesick that you decided to shut him up. For a little bit, at least.
Setting you back on Earth, he bared a grin when whilst holding you away from his body. He was looking for any change to your appearance since he’d last saw you, which was five months ago. A lot can happen in five months, and Chris was always so diligent in knowing every detail of your face and appearance. He could spot your hair cut an inch shorter, or you wore a new outfit. It was nice to have a best friend who took notice in the effort you put into looking presentable.
“Well, what are you fuckin’ doin’ here? When’d you get in?” Chris slung one arm over your shoulder and guided you towards the crafts table, where a selection of decorous food was lying.
“Lisa ringed me the other week beggin’ me to take spring vacation to come visit you! I guess I was the only one fit to shut up your whining and begging.” Chris chuckled and nodded in acknowledgment. He knew he had been on the, rather, complaining side in his tone for the last few months. He just missed his family so much. He missed seeing Miles, Lucy, and Noah. He missed not being able to go to his parent’s house on Thursdays for spaghetti dinner.
“Like always, she was right. You are the only human being beside her that could make me feel like I’m home with just your presence.”
You felt so much love for your best friend, and now you felt even more. He was so sweet and benevolent in nature. He’d been that way since the day you met him, 26 years ago. He was just a scrawny 9 years old, terrified to go down the slide on the playground. You were an adventurous 8-year-old and told Chris he could hold your hand while going down the slide together. He agreed and ever since then you two have held each other’s hands through the worst of times and the best of times.
“It can’t be! No way!” Booming from across the lot, you saw Mackie waving his hands frantically at you while jogging over. There had been a companion with him, a brunette you had only heard about before. The brunette didn’t join Mackie when he ran over to you, though. He just set foot in a slow pace walk, almost looking uneager to meet the mysterious best friend of Chris’.
Anthony pulled you into a big hug when he finally reached you and Chris, both pigging out at the table of goodies. “Big Mack! How goes it?”
He shrugged nonchalantly, “Not too bad. Livin’ good down in A.T.L., aren’t we Evans?”
“You are, Mr. Life of The Party.” Anthony gawked at Chris and slapped his shoulder. “Don’t try and pretend that you ain’t out at the clubs, talkin’ to the ladies, now. We don’t wanna be tellin’ lies to our friends now do we?” You giggled at shook your head, turning back towards the donuts.
You held a chocolate glazed one to your mouth when you heard an unfamiliar voice from behind.
“I wouldn’t if I were you. Those have been baking in the sun for a good fifteen hours.”
Sebastian had his blue eyes cast towards you, with a warm smile upon his lips. Chuckling nervously, you agreed and laid the donut back on the tray.
“Thank you. Wouldn’t have wanted to catch food poisoning my first day here.” Sebastian just broadened his grin that, swear to god, was twinkling in the sunlight. He stuck out his hand and you met him halfway.
“Y/N. Chris’ best friend.”
Ever since that moment, you had been hooked to Sebastian Stan. Hopelessly, carelessly devoted to a man who didn’t even know you felt so much towards.
Request: Hi! Can you do a Simon imagine where y/n is a beauty youtuber or something like that and he does her voiceover for a video please!
A/N: I don’t really watch makeup videos so I’m sorry it took so long and if it’s not super accurate
(Y/n) spun lazily in her chair as she scrolled through her contacts looking for one of her YouTuber guy friends that would be up at this hour. She was supposed to have this video out yesterday but there was a problem with the audio when she tried to record with her microphone.
“Hey, Simon?” (Y/n) asked, putting the phone up to her ear.
“Hey, (y/n). What’s up? And why are you up? It’s 4 in the morning.”
“Could ask the same to you, but I was wondering if you could help me with a video really quick.”
“How can I help? I know nothing about makeup.”
“That’s kinda the point.” (Y/n) said laughing. She could hear Simon sighing and rubbing his face. “You don’t have to put makeup on anyone. Don’t worry.”
“I’m able to come over right?”
(Y/n) pulled her phone out of her pocket as she pulled into Simon’s driveway. She parked behind Vik’s car and texted Simon that she was there. (Y/n) shut the car door and made her way up the front walk. If she was quiet enough and really listened for it, she could hear some of Simon’s friends recording and yelling over games and pack openings. She cradled her laptop in her arms as the door opened, engulfing her in warmth. She forgot how nervous she got around Simon in person…
“Hey.” Simon said stepping aside and gesturing his arm for her to come inside. “What can I help you with?”
“Okay so my microphone isn’t working and I need to do a voiceover for a video I was supposed to have out yesterday. But-” “Why didn’t you call me sooner?”
“I thought you’d be busy!”
“Busy doing what? I can make time for you.”
“Stop it! I want you to do the voiceover though. That’s the thing.” (Y/n) said trying to change the subject quickly. Her hands were shaking.
“Oh God. I said I don’t know anything about makeup!” Simon said slouching slightly as he began walking towards the stairs.
“I know! But it’s kind of a thing on YouTube right now for beauty vloggers to have their boyfr - guy friends - do voice overs for their videos.” (Y/n) said catching herself suddenly as she followed Simon to his room. He laughed slightly.
“You were going to say boyfriend.”
“I mean that’s what it usually is. I just don’t- yeah. You know what? Let’s just drop it.” (Y/n) said feeling sudden dejection.
“Sorry,” Simon said sitting down in his chair, reaching out his hand for (y/n)’s laptop. “So I just need to get this straight before I do it. You want me to watch the video and narrate what I think is going on even if I have no real idea?”
“Great casting choice. Let me tell you.” Simon said before taking a drink of water and pressing record. (Y/n) sat down on the edge of Simon’s bed, trying not to laugh at the mocking voice he was using.
Simon pressed the stop button and turned around with a bewildered face. “You look like you just fought in a war.” (Y/n) said laughing.
“I did! How do you do that? It looks so complicated!”
“It’s really not. It just takes practice.”
“What do you want me to do with the audio file?” Simon said breathlessly.
“Can you just email it to me? I gotta edit it and schedule it and that stuff.” “I gottcha.” Simon said typing on his computer before (y/n) stood up to take her laptop and leave, “Y-you know you can stay. If-if you want.”
“You can stay here.”
“Like for the night or until I finish editing?” (Y/n) asked hesitantly.
“Are you sure?”
(Y/n) was still editing and running through the video even after Simon had gotten into bed. He watched from beside her as she clicked around the screen making sure the audio was synced up before she exported the video, set the thumbnail, and gave the title and description. She was in the midst of typing ‘Day to Night Look | Miniminter Does My Voiceover’ when Simon interrupted her.
“Wait. Change that.”
“Instead of miniminter.”
“What’s wrong with it?”
“Nothing. It’s just that if you want to change it to boyfriend, I wouldn’t complain.”
Not sure why I decided to drop this, but my skin care routine has been ON POINT this year and wanted to share it with the rest of Tumblr. Use it, don’t, make some edits and let me know how they turn out for you. My melanin has been sparkling all year though so I really wanted to share the love. Enjoy✨
African black soap: I tend to gravitate towards the Shea Moisture brand although it’s very drying in areas with harder water, so using a great moisturizer is key. Those of you with soft water, you’re blessed. I tend to use this on my face despite the risk. On sensitive skin areas, (face and cooch) do NOT let this sit long. Trust me, please don’t.
Apple Cider Vinegar: This is a life saver! Since my skin doesn’t break out often, I tend to only use this once a week or when I do get a minor breakout. Mix this half and half with water, applying to the face with a cotton ball and let dry. Super easy.
Lemon, honey, oatmeal/sugar exfoliator: I love making products myself when I can. Plus, these ingredients are sooooo good for you! The lemon brightens your skin, and in this mix gets rid of unwanted facial hair with continued use over time. The honey makes such a great moisturizer and my skin feels so soft and smooth after I use it. The oatmeal after you grind it up as fine as possible, (I like to use a mortar and pestle, but a blender works fine too) calms down redness and irritation, even caused by acne. I tend to substitute sugar when I’m going for a lip scrub. With oatmeal, I’ll apply twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Let this set for twenty minutes, then in outward circular motions, rub off, rinsing off with COLD water. With the lip scrub, I’ll use at least once a week or before using matte lip stick.
Eucerin Healing Soothing Repair Cream: This works MIRACLES for me. Where I currently go to school, the water is super harsh so keeping my skin moisturized is a necessity, especially since my combination skin develops eczema when dry. A dot or two of this is enough to keep my entire face moisturizer and dewy in appearance. If I do happen to use too much, it’s easy to blot with a paper towel. In the summer, the product is great because I’ll forgo foundation or bb cream and just use this.
WATER: A no brainer but this is so important for good skin. I love to use the H2OPAL App to keep track of my intake. It also calculates how much you need based on temperature, age, weight and height which cuts out a lot of guesswork for you. It also will calculate how much you should drink by certain parts of the day. HYDRATE.😊
This is for anyone who wasn’t completely satisfied by the finale, PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND.
EDIT: well, this certainly blew up more than I really ever wanted it too. The Tumblr fandom force sure is something. Anyway, so some certain responses on here, may I just say the OP, who is not me,(link to original thread here) is TRANS and MARRIED TO ANOTHER MAN? In response to some people on here, btw, he says this. PLEASE don’t harass him, or anyone for that matter for having a different opinion than you. I had no bad intentions with putting this out there, I just wanted people to consider this thought about the show. It’s honestly discouraging to see how polarizing people are with the interpretation. I feel like it flew over some people’s heads here…
Do you need another couple pairs to ship and ruin your life with hoping and praying to all and any gods/ demons that the gay representation you’ve wanted for so long is going to happen?
Let me introduce you to DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY
It’s a BBC America show featuring Samuel Barrnet (an openly gay actor and also the essence of the post “have you ever seen a man so beautiful you started crying”) playing as Dirk Gently, a lovable cinnamon roll and his grumpy assis-friend Todd Brotzman (played by Elijah Wood)!
Not to mention the other amazing characters like Amanda, Todd’s sister who’s not only a badass but takes no shit and needs a break, Farah (also known as my wife who also deserves a break), Bart (my murder daughter), Ken (actual innocent child who came here to have a good time), the Rowdy Three (but there are four of them… we are all aware- also one of them is Osric Chau who’s Kevin in supernatural), and many more amazing characters with a diverse cast! The director is Max Landis and if you don’t know him I’ll give you a hint, he was the guy at Comic con with the rainbow hair and the twitter account you’ve probably seen in tumblr posts. Crazy shit happens, there’s shark cats, detective work, a corgi, creepy bald dudes, time travel, murder, and it’s starting its second season soon! So I suggest you jump on the train now and watch the first season which is already out!
Seriously I love this show it most definitely does not get enough attention. so I’m willing to take the chance to get hurt again with no representation ;u;.
BUT don’t take my word for it, watch the trailer and read the reviews and if it’s not for you well that’s totally okay!
(Also if I fucked up any facts send me a message and I’ll fix it)
You listen to me. I’ve been a live a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I’ve seen things you couldn’t imagine, and done things I prefer you didn’t. Don’t exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I’ve only my blood, which doesn’t exactly rush in the direction of my brain, so I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong, bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there’s only one thing I’ve ever been sure of – you. Hey, look at me. I’m not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it’s not because I want you, or because I can’t have you, and it has nothing to do with me. I love what you are. What you do. How you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you, and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You are a hell of a woman. You’re the one, Buffy.
