How To Survive A Boring Lecture

1. Scare yourself straight. “If I don’t pay attention to this lesson and remember every single sentence the teacher says I’ll never get into college. If I don’t get into college, I’m never going to earn my degree. I’ll end up 35 years old, still living with my parents and no hopes of getting my own house and family. No one will respect or dare depend on me for advice or anything. Say those words to yourself, share yourself that way and you will pay attention.

2. Even A students get bored at times by lectures.  What is the difference between the A student and the C student?  Their approach to the lecture.  Don’t let “boring” become an excuse for not showing up to class.  Dive right in, sit near the front, buy a coffee, and simply face the fact that you will be less than entertained for a couple of hours.  Get in the mental game and you will survive.

3. Note Focus Since the teacher is boring, you need to find something you can make interesting. While I usually don’t recommend note taking unless the student really enjoys the process, this is a time when note taking can be a huge advantage.

When you take notes, you give your brain an explicit purpose in listening to the teacher speak. If you’re not writing something down on your sheet of paper then you instantly know you’re probably not paying enough attention. While you shouldn’t try to get down every word the teacher says, if keeping up with the teacher is an absolute breeze then continue trying to write down more. This process forces you to focus on the teacher despite the lecture being boring. It gives you a clear and measurable objective when it comes to focus. If at the end of the class, you have no notes written down then you definitely failed. If you have pages of notes written down then, whether you enjoyed it or not, you at least focused a little through the lecture.

4. The Subject – Not The Speaker  Make sure you’re focusing on the subject of the boring lecture instead of the speaker. Focusing on a person that talks too slow or speaks in a monotone voice can be downright painful. If you want to put up with it then it’s usually best to focus as much of your energy on the subject as you can. Don’t try to hear the teacher’s enthusiasm. Don’t listen to emotional content. Listen as if the teacher is just a computer reading off something. Listen mechanically instead of emotionally.

This is a process of distancing yourself from your own emotions. Do everything you can to keep all your emotional energy on your own representation of the information you’re being told. By focusing on that you can limit your distraction and boredom during the worst of it.

5.  Absolutely read the material before class.  If you are unfamiliar with the course material then it will only magnify the boredom.  Not reading would be like signing up for a book club, going to the gathering but never bothering to open the book. How boring!  Be sure to prepare and stay in the loop.  When you are reading the material create possible questions to ask in class (if the professor takes questions).  Participating in class speeds up time for you.  And, you never know, your question could prompt others to speak up and the class could take an intriguing turn.  Dare I suggest, you might enjoy the class then.

6.  Do not take out your phone to answer, chat or read emails.  Again, this will make the boredom worse.  You are essentially running away from the problem by turning to the cell phone rather than confronting the issue head on.  This is a C student response.  Moreover, it is a bad habit.  After college, you might find yourself in other boring situations like work meetings.  It is not a good (or beneficial) idea to tune out and gravitate to your phone while others are talking.  Indeed, there will be times when your good friends bore you!  Would you take out your phone while they talk?  Of course not.  For class time, strengthen your concentration abilities and keep the phone in your bag.

7.   Through The Motions If you’re absolutely desperate to focus then eventually, it’s best to focus on going through the motions. If you learn to go through the motions of focusing then you’ll eventually start actually focusing on the subject. It’s virtually automatic. If you can’t force yourself to focus mentally than just forcing yourself to go through the motions will be able to get you most of the way there. When you go through the motions you’re giving your brain the signals that you’re trying to focus on the subject. Most of the time, your brain follows the motions you put your physical body through

Because for some strange, unknown reason Charanko developed a habit of forgetting to buy cabbage whenever they get together to have hot pots, Saitama and Genos nowadays just bring their own cabbage to the dojo.

Except this time, Saitama forgets.

Saitama pulls out his phone to call Genos. Genos isn’t here yet, he’s been running some errands and he’s supposed to be heading this way now. Maybe Saitama can get him to pick up some cabbage on his way.

Saitama presses dial on his phone, and Genos picks up exactly after one ring.

“Sensei,” Genos says. He also appears at the door of the dojo, holding his phone to his face with one hand and holding a grocery bag in the other.

There are cabbages in that bag.

Saitama stares. He folds his phone shut. His face brightens.

“You got me cabbages.”

Charanko thinks that Saitama should’ve said Genos got us cabbages, but no one corrects him. Genos settles down at one side of the small table.

“Yes, Sensei. I wasn’t sure if you had gotten them, and we can always save what we don’t eat today.”

“Genos, I love you.”

While the statement startles Charanko so much that he drops the large pot he was holding, it doesn’t faze Genos in the slightest. Genos merely starts taking the cabbages out of the grocery bag.

“You love that I bought cabbages for you?” Genos clarifies, taking a head of cabbage and inspecting it for any damage. The cabbage is fine. He sets it down and holds up another.

“Yeah. I also love you, in general.”

And that’s when the cyborg stops functioning.

I really do love the idea of Saitama who just does not know what to do with love (and I’m so glad so many people love it too!)

But I also really love the idea of the egg just being totally nonchalant with it even as he confesses his feelings for the first time (complete with the poor toaster having to deal with that)

But hold on where is Bang what is he doing

Ren's 24-hour insta-commissions, and animation commissions!

Hi all! I desperately need to save money for both paying my rent at the end of this month, and for a trip I’m going to be taking in May with @ethmoiids @sphenoids and @sirenibe !!! I’m opening what I call insta-commissions - basically, you WILL have your finished commission within 24 hours of you paying for it, or you get a refund. This is also a way for me to kick my own ass into gear, commit to my work, and learn to time-manage! You’d seriously be helping me out in more ways than one by grabbing some insta-commissions~

I’m currently offering:


Flat-coloured commissions from $10, as below

Fully-shaded character commissions from $15, as below

Fully-shaded & simple background commissions from $20, as below 

Plus, right now it’s buy two, get one free! ^^

Please note that the 24-hour time-frame applies to only a single commission. If you buy two and get a third one for free, it means the 24 hour time-frame will be tripled. That’s still only 3 days though, so it’s still pretty quick, regardless!


I’m also building my portfolio to get an internship at a studio, so I’d love to take some animation commissions of people’s characters! I’ll offer animations at a starting price of $25 for a short, looped animation. Like for example, a run cycle, or your OC doing something of your choice!

Ponies, humans, humanoids, furries, other feral animals, you name it! Just no mecha or complex suits of armor, for now. +w+

Please note that the 24-hour rule does not apply to animation commissions. Instead, I require approximately one week for each animation commission.

What I will need from you is a reference image of your character(s), and your PayPal email address so that I may send an invoice to you. All prices listed are in USD.

Thanks for considering!

“Despite not having the same skin color as her, I kinda relate to Tiana and her situation. I have a dream that some people would call impossible (I want to animate for Disney, but I have Dyspraxia and I live in Texas) and I know people that could easily help me buy my way up the ladder, but I won’t ask them to because I specifically want to follow my dream on my own. (With a little help every so often)”

anonymous asked:

a lot of native people feel that if you buy dreamcatchers (and specifically dreamcatchers, because they've already been so fully absorbed into White norms that it would be hard to get rid of them) from actual native craftspeople and are respectful of them and what they mean, they don't mind so much, but i guess it would be hard to show that in a comic, and probably not everyone feels that way.

That’s what I asked my friend, who is a native,( however not belonging to the Ojibwe tribe.) I asked them if it were okay if my oc (who is white passing) could own a dream catcher if it was a gift from his mom who bought it from an Ojibwe craftswoman. (They said it was okay, so long as I were respectful about it)

The dreamcatcher was a shoutout to this friend, and I honestly, truly did not mean any disrespect, and I’m very sorry it came off that way. I was originally going to explain in-comic about how the dreamcatcher came into Dallas’ possession. 

I’m a POC, but I’m not native american, so I really appreciated being educated on the matter.

Thanks for putting your actor hate in the show's meta tags you fucking entitled racist piece of shit asshole. No one buys you social justice smokescreen. This is about nothing more than your white girl ship obsession and the brown boy that you perceive to be in the way. Everyone sees through your racist bullshit.

lmao my blog doesn’t use any of the official tags for any show. ever. i use tags to keep my own blog organized, not to post so people can see it. so nice try, but admit you’re stalking lol 

also, what white girl ship? who am i obsessed over? lexa is dead. the ship is dead??? who is he gonna get in the way of??? they’re admitted soulmates. if they got together he’d just be backwash for clarke. y’all are sad. 

angel, from italy, draws ridiculous stuff on tumblr (@extremelybadlydrawnemos). he has actually studied art but you sure cant tell

ok folks im way too impatient for my own good but its whatever………… have fun, check shit out, and tell me ya onions!!!!!!


y’all know my depressing text post about teru (btw i love all the tags, keep up the good job folks and suffer), now have my depressing fic about teru

because i obviously have nothing better to do and i definitely don’t have an ongoing atla fic to write

(co-posted on ff.net)

Edit : @prettypistachio was kind enough to put it on AO3 too, if you like that site better !!

The first time Teru buys groceries on his own, he really doesn’t know what to do.

He is eleven, and his parents just decided he should live on his own – they say it’s safer this way, these “Claw” people won’t find him if he stays away from home. He knows they’re lying. Sees how afraid they are – of him, not for him – and while he doesn’t understand why, he knows it’s better if he obeys.

(People who are afraid of dogs tend to hate them if they have to stay close and he doesn’t want his parents to hate him.)

The flat his parents got him is nice and clean. It’s smaller than home, but he guesses it’s normal since he’s going to be alone.

His parents say they will send him money every month, more often if he needs it, and that he won’t need to worry about anything.

Again, it’s a lie, but this time Teru doesn’t realize it until he is in the supermarket, alone, with no idea of what one is supposed to buy when living alone.

(Alone, but his parents love him, they kept saying that during the whole thing, and Teru really wants to believe that.)

Grimoire Index

Hello my lovelies! 

One of my goals this year was to have a collective handwritten grimoire completed. I’m doing a ‘rough draft’ version of it, where it’s in a cheap notebook and written in basic pencil with not much decoration. Once I get it the way I like, I’ll be buying a more expensive leather journal and writing it in, but for now, I like having my rough sketchbook for the grimoire. I have decided to post the format of my Grimoire, what I want to include and how I will set it up etc. as inspiration for anyone who is thinking about writing one themselves! 

Section One: Personal Beliefs
My Beliefs
Elements of my Practice- what kind of witch I identify as, my own rules/boundaries etc
My Goals
The Witch Rules

Section Two: The Basics
Definition of Craft Terms
List of Witch Types (included the ones I identify as in the pervious section)
List of Symbols-
      Moon phases
      Colour meanings
Powers of the days of the week
Elementals- Fire, Air, Earth, Water
Altar- layout
Tools- meanings
Chakra types

Section Three:  Sabbats & Yearly Co-ordinates
Wheel of the Year layout
Sabbats- Solstices and Equinoxes- Rituals, foods, crafts, incense/herbs, spells, symbols, colours etc for each sabbat

Section Four: Astrology and Divination
Sun sign, Moon sign and Rising sign for self
Planet Meanings
Description of divination method
      Tea reading
      Tarot reading

Section Five: Gods and Goddesses (leave space):
Gods I am interested in working with & their information
Goddesses I am interested in working with & their information

Section Six: Most Important Crystals and Herbs

Section Seven: Spells, Rituals, Charms etc
For each spell, have a format set up- type of spell, when would it be the most powerful, things you would need, instructions etc

Remember, this is a rough outline for my personal Grimoire. I find that this will work for me, but each Grimoire and Book of Shadows is special for every person and no two books will be the same. I plan on using my Grimoire as strict reference guide and a place to write my spells and I have a separate Book of Shadows for all my personal reflections, results of spells/tarot readings/charms, and extra notes. Many people put those two functions in the asme book but I like to keep them separate. I hope that you can take out of this inspiration for your own Grimoire or BoS. Include and take out whatever you want. Make it yours!


You know, I reached a point where Moana is a hue part of my life.
Not just because of all the goodies and poster I am buying (and cosplay I plan on doing).

But mostly because, since I am Tahitian, and I’m currently studying in France, my classmates and teachers are now using Moana as a way to “reach me”.
I’ve always been awkward around my classmates, but this movie gave me the opportunity to communicate.

Some classmates are coming to me and asking stuff about the Polynesians culture, like “was it right? Did they portray it right?”

It also helped me and my dad get closer. I was always that “anti conformist” kid. My dad was always exasperated by my lack of interest in my own culture. It’s not that I didn’t want it in my life, I just thought that it’s not that important anyway.

But seeing Moana so rooted to her island and culture, made me realized how important that is.

I started asking questions about Tahiti to my dad, and he’s now so happy.

Moana is also what encouraged me take one year in Tahiti, after my studies, to learn Tahitian and take Tahitian dance like I used to.

This movie was also a huge deep of breath. Being away so long from your hometown, an ISLAND, and staying in a big country where you have to drives MILES and MILES to see the beach is extremely depressing and sad.

So watching it in big screen, was a reminder of my island and helped me get stronger to keep going so that I can go back home victorious.

And I am so lucky for this movie to come in my life, and that’s why people, representation matter.

Do you ever do something that just makes you feel super grown up?? because today I went out & bought washcloths and for some reason that feels like a really big step in my life LMFAO

st64rfox  asked:

I just wanted to say I absolutely love your art!! I love your style and concepts and you've become a big inspiration for me because I'm trying to become more of a serious artist. I can't wait to see your comic one day and I would definitely buy it if you sold it! And I was also wondering what is the best way to support you as an artist, since your work means a lot to me? I don't want to just appreciate it without giving back

oh thank you so much!! i’m happy that i can inspire others with my work. good luck on your own personal art journey btw!

thanks for your kind thoughts too, honestly I’ve been considering a patreon campaign for a while now but i really wasn’t sure how that was going to work before i started my personal comic project? since it wouldn’t be as easily broken down into funding per page or anything…eh i don’t know haha. i’m also a little too busy right now with freelance work and other books to be offering anything very interesting in terms of sketches or monthly art collections or anything. if anyone has any suggestions on what they’d like to see from me, please let me know! perhaps in the future i’ll figure that all out, when i’m done with some of my current projects.

for now though i really appreciate all the support people have given me already by sharing my work around and sending me nice messages! it means a lot to me and i hope i’ll continue to make things that you’ll like in the future ♡

the signs as shit I've done
  • Aries: Getting kicked out of ballet when I was 4 years old for "taking over the class"
  • Taurus: Breaking a rib while in the process of donating a very large television to charity
  • Gemini: Buying rocket pops and making it all the way back to the dorm before realizing i did not own a working freezer
  • Cancer: running into a door frame and giving myself a concussion
  • Leo: Getting interviewed by the local news about winning a county-wide spelling bee in 6th grade and lying to the reporter by saying that I was recovering from open heart surgery because I wanted to make my interview more "interesting"
  • Virgo: Climbing up onto the roof of my school on a dare and getting the whole class in trouble
  • Libra: Getting kicked in the face and chipping a tooth, get it fixed, then rechip the same tooth walking face first into a tree
  • Scorpio: Stabbing a boy with a pencil when he tried to hold my hand during a weird church meeting we had to attend for class
  • Capricorn: Spelling my middle name incorrectly until I was in 8th grade
  • Aquarius: Forgetting to eat for a day and a half and passing out randomly at swim practice
  • Pisces: Getting into a twenty minute argument with a teacher about star wars (that I was winning) until an onlooker pointed out that I haven't even seen star wars

Let’s face it – as fans of Korean music, there unfortunately aren’t many places we can get merch that doesn’t scream “LOOK AT ME, I LIKE KPOP.” Speaking for myself, I’d rather wear a shirt out knowing I won’t have to explain “what’s Bangtang?” to everyone I interact with that day. Not that I mind talking about my tastes, but if people who wear Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, or Adele shirts don’t have to do it, why do I have to? Hopefully, you feel the same way.

There aren’t many sites and resources selling merchandise with subtle references to the artists we love, so I created my own. At first, I only planned on buying these for myself, since I have no desire to make a profit off of these (I already have a job, I don’t need two). However, it only seems fair to share it with other ARMYs as well :)

I created a REDBUBBLE so you all, if you’d like, can have merch with subtle hints to Bangtan as well. The six above are a few of the designs already on the RedBubble account, so feel free to take a look!

Each design is available as shirts, jackets, phone cases, table/laptop cases and skins, pillows, mugs, notebooks/journals, bags, and prints/posters of different varieties. I’m willing to slightly alter designs (colors, placement) if need be, and don’t mind taking recommendations. However, I put a lot of thought into the meaning and look of each design (many of them were altered drastically, and some are graphics I never continued, so I have done a lot of reflecting on each one), so the way they are published is how I intended for them to look. I hope you’ll give my work a glance!

Thanks for reading!
