now that i look at it it kinda does look crappy lol

Opia

Hi everyone! So this is part one of the ABO Verse fic I promised to post. I finally got around to writing it and voila! Let me know what you think pretty please? It’s kinda short but every first chapter is right? xxx 

Pairing: Alpha!Bucky x Omega!Reader

Summary: The a/b/o verse where Hydra fucked with Bucky’s hormones and temporarily made him a Beta (because they take orders better) as the Winter Soldier, but now that he’s safe at Stark Tower, Tony hires Y/n to help re-orientate him back to his natural-born rank as Alpha.

veritatem inquirendam [seek the truth] (frank castle)

(gif source)

(original request: AU in which Frank is younger, and he and reader are college students. There’s a heated debate in class and everyone disagrees with Frank except the reader. After that, Frank starts paying more attention to the reader and hanging out with her after class, until he realizes he’s falling in love but she has no idea he is until her best friend tells her.)

(this is terrible i LOVE college frank i love this soft soft boy. what a nerd. i hate him. no warnings on this one except mentions of food and some sexism early in the story!!!)

The professor is wrong. She knows it, but she can’t say it. You can’t say “you’re fucking wrong” in front of a classroom of fourty kids. Instead of speaking her mind, she bites her tongue and clicks the cap of her pen up and down, up and down, trying to tune out the professor’s voice.

Languages without textbooks

Because I disagree with ONLY using language textbooks…

Do I have to emphasize on the “only” more?

Disclaimer: this post applies mainly to outside of a classroom setting [even then I disagree but that’s a whole different matter]. Also It doesn’t mean I won’t use a textbook from time to time, or that I look down on people who use textbooks. As a matter of fact I’m jealous because my attention span isn’t high enough for textual learning. This does NOT mean you shouldn’t use textbooks. For a beginner, it is important that you use one. But, it’s better not to only use that. I learned a slavic language, as well as English, with only these methods, they kinda work yo. But I’m a mere language peasant so don’t think I’m some next level thing cause I’m not!

I’m not a fan of textbooks because I feel like they’re on this repetitive paradoxal cycle that ends you into a slump as soon as you start to feel like you’ve achieved something. I tried completing over six books and it always ends up like this. They usually teach you vocabulary that doesn’t correlate well, and they don’t provide enough explanations on the grammatical nuances. Also, most of them don’t even tackle the spoken language and slang, which I find annoying. I want to text man. I want to be able to be as rude in Romanian as I am rude in English. Why don’t you give me that?

It’s dry, and I want to cry just by looking at the amount of Smith and Tanaka’s in Japanese textbooks. If I see one more スミスorシュミット from ドイツ with a generic company name I will scream. 

Ok apart from crappy 2 min paint skills, behold the methods.

Reading thematic/reference books

Pick up a book on X subject (for my case in Japanese), like an encyclopedia about animals.

  1. Start by breaking your book in sections. I use the page method, meaning I’d read a page at least twice before going to the next page. Breaking your reading material in smaller/digestible sections won’t exasperate you, or demotivate you. Think about it. What is a smarter goal? Reading the whole book by Tuesday vs Reading 10 pages by Tuesday ? Go for a smaller portion, especially if you have other commitments.
  2. Don’t start by searching up words. Read the section you started with first. Read it once. Read it out loud preferably (optional but it helps). Then skim it for words, starting from the most recurrent words, to the least recurrent. If your book is based on one subject, don’t waste too much time on kanji if you’re doing it with jp. They might repeat a lot later on anyways. When you’re done with that, read again with your unknown vocab in mind. Don’t feel bad for not knowing everything right off the bat. 
  3. The best thing I could suggest to do is to do a quick summary of what you read, in target language. Use the words you learned from the text, as well as your previous knowledge. Don’t go up searching new words, that’s a tedious process I don’t suggest, unless you have the time and motivation.
  4. When you finish your book, look for documentaries and videos on the subject you just read. Seriously youtube is full of those, and with the proper keywords, you can find everything. If you have trouble with finding something, I could help you.
  5. You don’t need to be a certain level to read a reference/thematic book (this applies especially for non romanized languages), but for Japanese I do suggest using a book which has furigana if you’re like me and don’t know the enemy properly— I mean kanji, not the enemy, my bad. Seriously, we don’t need to be advanced or achieved a specific JLPT level, or be fluent. But that doesn’t matter, as long as you’re reading something you find interesting.

Learning thematically from videos:

This is particularly useful for those who want to have some variety in their learning, or who want to have a break from said studying but still learn something. What I’d do is pick up a particular subject that you like and search it up in youtube (alternatively I recommend afreeca for Korean learners but that’s not gonna get you school subjects or niconico for Japanese learners).

  1. Find said subject in your target language, try to put good keywords to get relevant results. Don’t be like me and get imperialist propaganda while searching for politics lmao.
  2. Find a channel that posts video of said thing that you like.
  3. Open up a notebook or a note program, whatever is more efficient for you.
  4. Title this document/notebook the subject you want to learn from.
  5. Have different sections in it. What I do is: spoken language (what the person said with a translation of it, this is particularly useful for everyday expressions or slang), written (written things in the video if there are, especially if you’re looking at a lecture), and a mini glossary (for words you encountered through listening and are interesting.). For the words I suggest you search them up at the end of the video.
  6. After finishing the video, search up the words. Now, take a pretty notebook, or open up a new document titled with your subject. Write a small summary of what you watched with the words you learned/wrote in the glossary if it was a lecture video, or write a diary-style entry about what you watched. Did you watch a beauty video? Write what you think about that beauty cream presented. “She said it was 25,000W. Ugh. So expensive. I’m not paying that much for it. I prefer this foundation cream. blabla” (just a random example lol).  Basically write or type something.
  7. What to do with the spoken language part? The expressions that you heard? This applies especially if you watched a vlog, a gameplay or a random video. Check those expressions, check if you’re alone in the room and say them out loud. I promise you they will get repeated in other videos (especially the hello, this is x, thank you for watching, etc), so they are not useless. A lot of the time in japanese videos, for instance, I hear a lot of polite expressions in the beginning and end which are super useful, noticed this with romanian as well.
  8. WATCH WHATEVER YOU WANT: you like planning agendas videos? Beauty guru? Anime? Drama? Gameplays? Lectures about history? Eating shows? Seriously watch whatever please don’t be scared.

Learn from a language exchange, yas:

I’m using Hellotalk for this. Especially since it has a correction feature which means native speakers can correct you and provide notes for you. But if you want to chat with native speakers without studying the language directly, this is what I do. I just chat with the person and throw in whatever I think is right. If it’s wrong, then I cry— I mean I gladly accept the correction and learn from it. Usually when I receive a correction from the user I immediately reuse this correction in another message so it sticks in ^^!

a) write a badly written message to a language buddy

b) get correction of your message

c) optional: cry because you made an obvious mistake

d) review the correction, send a message with that correction :D

Do you like to write?:

What do you mean no? Shh, I’m sure you said yes. Nanowrimo in november, a word document all year long. Also, tumblr’s prompts. Start a little story (no matter your level), write a fanfic if you want, a novel, whatever. Doesn’t have to get read by other people, but if you want, put it on lang-8. Just write as much as you can but whenever you feel annoyed from searching up words, stop. Write when you want and when you have inspiration. I’m doing this for jp so I can attest it’s good practice :D Alternatively, making small dialogues and monologues is also a good think. Pretend this is drama class. I highly recommend this. Boost your ego!

Pretend to be a native speaker:

Yes, you read this right. Pretend to be a native speaker. No I don’t mean to pretend to be someone you’re not. I mean to immerse yourself completely. I’m talking about changing 90% of your daily things to the language. Which means:

  • phone settings
  • computer settings (please be careful here though)
  • website language (again be careful dont send random relationship requests like me).
  • training to think in the language. Next time you stab your toe on the table, curse in your target language. Say how much it hurts and how much you hate your table, in the language.
  • Twitter: tweets in your language. It can be a private twitter. My twitter is for Korean and its private and I dump in all random thoughts that are very embarrassing and most of them are about my crushes so yeah I mean double benefit! You practice writing with the new grammatical structure you encountered and then you can ramble to yourself about pretty/handsome people YAS
  • Buy the Fluency pill it’s $99.99 on Ebay…. Okay but I wish there was a fluency pill….
  • THIS ONE IS WEIRD BUT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. This is really where you pretend to be a native speaker but you’re not. Go to x website that has the option to write comments or chat with other people from that country. We foreigners to the language love to spread the word about how we’re, well, a foreigner to them and that we’re studying that language STOP! just write everything EXCEPT THAT. I remember when I was studying this particular eastern european language, I went to a site and chatted and never said anything about being Canadian. Nobody asked, I just went along and the conversation didn’t stop or change. Honestly, we don’t write PERFECTLY in English, we use slang and write in broken phrases. SO WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? ^O^ !!!!

Are you still alive from this long post?

*Splashes water on you* Wake up yo. Okay. You’re amazing and I love you for that. You deserve great things! Anyways last tip is… Use a textbook as long as you don’t make it your main focus. This also goes for the thematic books. We need variety!! Don’t you feel tired of only studying? What you learn…it should be used somehow… this is why I don’t like only textbooks. I was the one who studied spanish from textbooks only for years and it got me nowhere because I never used it. Use the language. That’s the golden tip seriously. BUT! Use it accordingly to your preferred study method and IF that is textbooks, don’t feel like I’m looking low at it. (I’m one of those who drools at textbook shelves and would watch a 20 min video of you making a tour of your shelf so believe me lmao).

Anyways sorry for this disgustingly long post I’ll tag this omg.

(Updated) Fanacc of TRB in Dallas (ft my mom)

I just got back from TRB and it was great!!! I went with my mom who never heard of kpop (minus psy) before I mentioned this concert two weeks ago and she never heard their songs until today lmao
Also sry for any typos I’m on mobile :/// I hope my read more works I’ll update any errors tomorrow

ok i just updated this + added a few things i forgot!

boyfriend! jimin

this is kinda long and i still have more to say… wtf… kinda wanna make this a series?? idk tho.. tell me tho ^_^

- so in the beginning of the relationship… he’d be so shy.. n he’d ramble and mumble a lot.. and u’re like when is he gonna stop?? even tho u r intently listening to his story where he accidentally spilled his ramyun all over himself in front of a buch of ppl.. smh

- and he kinda really reaLLy wants to kiss you in a non creepy way like he just really likes u and wants to show it u kno.. he doesn’t really mind if it’s just your cheek or ur forehead even.. but he’s like… are we smth? does she like me or is she playing??

- on ur first date he took u to see a movie and the movie really sucked but the both of u had a good time anyway because the cinema was empty so you both ran up the two aisles and tried to catch each other 

- he did manage to catch u and he accidentally-on-purpose wrapped his arms around u from behind and sorta pulled you closer.. and the both of u just stood there for like 2 mins.. waiting for someone to make a move.. but the both of u are too shy so u pull away and he looked really sad but u pecked him on the cheek when he sent you home.. and he had such a huge grin on his face :-)

- but… jimin kinda wants more… but he keeps doubting himself….

- so one time he asked yoongi to third wheel the both of u and yoongi’s like “wow.. u guys haven’t even kissed? jimin wtf step up ur game”

- and jimin just splutters and he’s like “what?? we have kissed lots of times here look i’ll do it now”

-  and he kisses you and its really intense and almost too deep for a first kiss but the both of u really like it and jimin’s like “wow that felt so nice” and he just keeps kissing u in front of yoongi 

- yoongi looks like he wants to d i e so he just says “my work here is done” and just leaves lol 

- if it wasn’t for yoongi the both of u probably would’ve never kissed so thank him.. god bless

- so after that he gets really touchy and he’s the type of guy that rubs your back when you hug.. and he’d play with your hair while you’re just lying down on his lap using ur phone.. and it’d be a habit for him to just nuzzle ur shoulder

- he’s so cheesy like he’d get the both of u couple items even tho he knows u hate them n think its sorta tacky… but he goes out of his way to get them so u wear them for his sake..

- one time he got the both of u matching undies with little puppies on them..

- he’s the type of person to google pick up lines and use them on you

- “hey, if u were a vegetable you’d be a cutecu-”

- “jimin shut ur mouth”

- half awake smiles in the morning and husky voiced good mornings awrgghh

- taehyung and jungkook would always make puking noises when jimin kisses you in front of them.. he’d either whoop both of their asses or he’d blush and b really shy after that there is no in between

- when u come home sometimes he’d have a whole meal ready for the both of u and he’d claim that he cooked it but rlly it was jin doing everything.. all jimin did was chop the carrots 

- most of the time the both of u would stay in just so he gets to rest more, so u just make some ramyun or order food and stay up late watching really crappy variety shows

- sometimes jimin would just b like “baby feel my abs” and you’re forced to… i mean it feels good n they r def there.. but he’s gonna get all cocky after this… so u just act like its no big deal

- one time the both of u dressed up as bunnies for halloween and he got pouty bc he said u looked cuter than him..

- “i should’ve dressed up like a cow again”

- that night the both of u got rlly sugar high and also a bit drunk and the next morning you guys find a whole lot of rlly derpy selfies on your phones… double chins.. duck faces.. bunny teeth….. u r slightly embarrassed to say this but there were selfies of the both of u kissing… jimin made it his lock screen on his phone aw

- whenever he’s on tour he’d facetime you as much as possible although taehyung would be interrupting him

- “jimin couldn’t stop talking about u tell him to shut up” and jungkook would be like “yea!!” in the background and hoseok would b like “omg y/n he was moaning ur name when he fell asleep in the plane!!!” and jimin would just end the facetime call right away and text u “its not true… i think.. i mean idk how to control my thoughts when im asleep im sorry” 

- there’d always be a lot of late night pillow talk where one of u just fall asleep and you can always tell when he’s about to fall asleep like he starts mumbling things and you can’t make out what he’s saying and he starts blinking rlly slowly… it’s cute

- the both of u love putting on face masks and scaring the other members… mainly hoseok tho… but still… other members

- the both of u just love each other very much and you never get bored of each other

- like you guys are genuinely happy that you get to see each other the first thing in the morning (sometimes when jimin’s drooling u take a pic for blackmail)

anonymous asked:

hey sorry but could you please stop tagging photos of fans or other photos that have neither josh nor tyler in it with their names? it's irritating and annoying for people that go through the tags to look for pictures of them.

I don’t know if you follow me or just came across my posts in the tags so I don’t know if it’s worth replying to this. I probably shouldn’t bother because I have a ton of other things I need to be doing but I’m not in the best mood and I have some things I want to say.So I’ve had this account for coming up on 18 months now and I’ve made over 15,000 posts–that’s close to 1000 posts per month (especially when you consider that the first couple months I only made two posts per day lol).  My queue is typically set to post on the hour, though during tour I’m usually posting every half hour (and then there was that one time I accidentally set my queue to post every two minutes lol…).  I would say that roughly 98.5% of my content is photos and most posts have two or more photos in them.

I guess what I’m saying, anon, is that I feel like I’ve contributed a good amount of those photos of Tyler and Josh that you look through the tags to find, and I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that less 100 of those posts are crowd/fan shots without the band.  

Here’s the thing… I get your frustration. The photos I post don’t just show up in my mailbox every day; I have to go searching for them. And I wade through a lot of stuff that has 0 to do with Tyler and Josh in order to find them.  Like. A lot. Have you tried going through their tags on instagram or twitter? A lot. I can’t actually quantify the amount of time I put into finding content for this blog; I can barely comprehend it, actually, but it’s like a part-time job. I’ve already made 15,000 posts and I have enough on my hard drive that if I stopped looking for new concert photos, I could sustain this blog at this rate for like another 3 years. So why tag Tyler and Josh in photo posts that don’t have photos of them? Well, these aren’t just random photos of fans. These are photos of fans at shows. Shows put on by Tyler and Josh. So even if they aren’t in them, they kinda have some relationship to the post, you know? And what about posts like this or this, where there is a message that’s pretty blatantly FOR them? But the biggest reason is because although I have been more than blessed with followers, not every fan on tumblr follows me. But I’ve found some fantastic photos of fans at shows and those people might have blogs and might be looking through the tags to find shots from their show without any idea that a photographer got a great photo of them in the crowd. I want them to be able to see that. Does that make sense? To be completely honest, I didn’t used to post fan photos. But I came across some great ones and was like man, if this was a photo of me, I would want to know it was out there.  And after I posted some, people started asking me if I had crowd shots from specific shows. And Brad Heaton tweeted this. And I feel like it’s appropriate. If you don’t like the photos you don’t have to click the heart or reblog, just scroll on by. If you feel like you’re doing too much scrolling because of my blog, I’m sorry. I don’t think I contribute to that problem a whole lot, but if you guys want me to stop tagging Tyler and Josh in fan posts, I guess I will (or more likely I’ll just mix those in with photos of the guys).

Anyway, sorry for the long post on your dashboards and my likely incomprehensible rambling. And let me sincerely thank those who have sent me lovely messages over the past year. I don’t like to publish the anon ones and I’m pretty slow/awful about replying to the others, but please know I read and appreciate them even if you never hear back from me. And anon, I hope you don’t feel like I’m dumping on you. If you’re having a crappy day too, I’m sorry 😕

- he gets really jealous when you compliment one of the boys like you’ll say “namjoon!! your dancing has really improved!!” and jimin would be like “what abt me” and all the boys would boo him
- but during the walk home u told him he looked the best out of everyone when he danced because you know he’s a fragile lil bear and that he gets insecure pretty easily so u r there for him constantly!! you’re his cheerleader n that’s really cute
- jungkook & tae third wheel occasionally.. most of the time they mock what the both of you do and groan at the excessive amount of pda
- you hardly watch music shows together (unless he’s promoting) because he gets jealous of the other boy bands you fangirl over
- “you should only be calling ME oppa!!!”
- “why are you voting for them i thought you liked me better”

- your first time doing the dirty with him would get an a+ if it was a school project
- everything just flowed really well although u bumped your heads once or twice but the both of u would just look into each other’s eyes and laugh it off and he took kinda long to unclasp ur bra and you were like “jimin do you want me to do it” and he says “no no!!! i can do it just give me a sec i think it’s stuck lol!!”
- you were really shocked at how dominant he gets in bed… he’s so firm but so sweet at the same time and the amount of hickeys he gave u????

- you guys hardly ever argue but there was this one time where you had a rlly big argument and it sucked so badly
- it was about some dumb dating rumour which blew up and you just wanna forget every single detail!!
- but jimin gave u some space and he came the next day and he was about to cry and he just loves u so so much and how could he let such a precious being just slip out of his hands…
- but ANYWAYS!!! the both of u r just head over heels in love with each other it’s kinda gross but it’s mostly endearing and it’s adorable
- the both of u r like little puppies that do nothing but cuddle n sleep
