on-two-feet

I’m two pills in and I’ve not slept yet. I’m two feet in and my temperature isn’t poetic. I’m two hands in and my wrinkles are bloody cracks surrounded near your chest. I’m two souls away from my next heartbreak. I’m two eyes from my next surprise. I’m two fingers pointing at the sun and saying one wasn’t enough to point out the truth of daybreak. I’m two poems away from figuring out this poetry. I’m two hearts away from feeling everything. I’m two eons away from tasting her and I’ve been searching the ocean for signs of ink, but we’re in too deep to the music and I’ve been thinking if octopuses really released ink or if they are actually poets bleeding their hearts out just like me… I’ve been thinking and thinking and thinking and thinking and thinking and I’m finally repeating myself enough to believe it. I’m kinda screwed and it only took two conversations to realize how messed up my emotions are. I’m two days away from writing another story about you and you’re probably two oceans away, but my darling, aren’t we a bit fucked?

Study Tips for the Lazy-Ass Student

For the freshman who’s come down with a bad case of senioritis, for the senior who has an 8AM they never make, for you who’s probably reading this lying down on the bed right now, here’s a collection of tips for your lazy butt. <3

#1 Grab ‘N Go

This sounds surprisingly active doesn’t it. Well, not necessarily - tip #1.5: don’t make things harder than they have to be. First, grab everything you need to study. By taking everything NECESSARY with you, you eliminate the need to make multiple trips for notebooks, pencils, or Nutella. Less movement, yay!!
On to step two…go somewhere else.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t actually have to go outside of your house to study. In fact, the best study area could be that nice swath of rug two feet from where you’re sprawled. Take it from someone who is essentially a sloth most days - get up, do a little stretch, maybe bust a move or two, and walk (or crawl) two feet in any direction. There’s your new study space.

#2 Use Your Ugliest Stationery

This must sound like blasphemy to a lot of the studyblrs out there. But, I personally find that if I’m using really pretty stationery, I get distracted by the sleek curves of my new Jetstream, or the creamy white of the notebook pages…you get the point. If you love stationery, you’d be doing a favor to yourself to use your ugliest stationery first - mitigating distractions and saving your best notebooks for last.

#3 Do Something Everyday

Ughhhh…I know. Sounds like work. But, think about it this way: if you do a little bit everyday, then you’re actually putting in minimal levels of effort per day to achieve your goal, rather than having to put in maximum effort the day before a deadline. (Deadpool reference, anyone?)

So Yeah.

Take it from someone whose favorite punctuation mark is the ellipses…laziness is fine, it’s great, and it’s normal. But remember that laziness isn’t always antithetical to productivity. You CAN be lazy and productive at the same time. So go ahead, keep on lounging around, make yourself a burrito, get comfortable and STUDY.

anonymous asked:

Dance AU?

ive actually had multiple dance-related prompts in my askbox, so i’m going to answer this one for all of em! hope yall don’t mind

Lance:
- one of the best dancers of the team, (have any of you read the rlly popular fic dirty laundry? because the writer absolutely nails lance’s dancing skills…his hips don’t lie)
- you can see him jamming out at any time and he’s almost never embarrassed to dance in front of people
- invites his s/o to dance if they’re there

Keith:
- two left feet, lbr
- he might do a little victory dance if he’s really happy about something, but quickly stops in case someone sees him
- if his s/o spots him dancing, he’ll yell for them to get out lmao

Hunk:
- about as good as a dancer as lance, (seeing them dance together is quite the scene)
- he’s a little bit more embarrassed about it than lance, but willing to show off to his s/o
- if his s/o is dancing first, he’ll join in

Pidge:
- does not dance, period.
- they dance rlly fckin white….like lbr here
- at best they’re swaying back and forth, super embarrassed

Shiro
- not a public dancer, but can dance
- you might catch him jamming out while he’s too preoccupied to notice you, like while he’s cleaning
- if you catch him he’ll straight up die

Headcanon: Pokemon and Humans

Over the last few days I’ve been thinking on a Head canon involving Pokemon and their integration into human society. When I say integration I mean intermingling kind of like humans: buying property, holding jobs and living as a citizen.

The way a pokemon can become a registered is by applying for a citizenship at a DMV. After there application is reviewed and accepted they are injected with a chip that does 2 things. The first is to nullify any pokeball tossed their way and to allow them to be tracked in the system. Not only that, if any human catches someone registered they can face prison time for kidnapping someone. Another helping point is that in bigger cities there are rules forbidding the capture of pokemon via balls, even if a mon is registered or not.

But there is an asterisk in the registration process. That asterisk is that certain pokemon can be, and have been, refused citizenship due to a number of reasons.

  • Not being humanoid like (basically having two feet and two hands)
  • Being too big or too small
  • Being a species prone to violence or being dangerous by proxy
  • Having an ability that can cause a hazard(primarily sand stream and snow warning)

For instance, a steelix would NEVER be allowed to be registered because it is far too big to function alongside humans. The reason for this is that if all mons were granted citizenship there would be a BUNCH of problem, namely the sheer amount of money that would be required to build things that could even support them.

The most common mons to be given citizenship visas are bipedal mons. Plus certain psychic and ghost types are usually granted visas, with a small handful of exceptions. There are certain types of mons that are of certain egg groups are outright turned down because laws concerning the safety of humans and societal pokemon.

  • Bird type bodied mons are VERY rarely granted chips or official citizenship unless they are psychic types, or have some form in their evolution that has hands(like togetic).
  • Fish mons are outright denied due to there being no consistent environment due to no constant big enough water supply.

Having said that, bipedal mons are not entirely safe. If a species is prone to danger or the mon in question does not pass a psych test or acts too wild in public, they can be captured, have their visa stripped or possibly killed if it becomes too severe.

Another way this gets complicated if with breeding facilities. If a breeding facility were to breed a lot of scrafties, only ones adopted by trainers  could be granted citizenship. While the laws around breeding could be its own headcanon page, generally not all mons from breeding cycles are granted citizenship, since they are the biproduct of a failed breed attempt.

There are ways around this for pokemon families with mixed egg group family members or parent: it would be registering them as pets. I’ll use ask-team-blackglasses for an example. Elijah would not be granted as an official citizen due to being a flying type and too small to warrant one, however Jace can register for citizenship, but register Elijah as an adopted mon under his owner ship. So he would have to register his son as a pet, which is an oft criticized point in universe. The system does have massive flaws that will be tackled as the story goes on.

If you have any questions on certain nitty gritties and anything I missed message me on it, or comment on it.

Ms Polly-wolly

It is so special to see her exploring our big-ass back yard. It is the largest space she has ever had to play in her life. 

Also she loves to sit on benches and chairs. But because of her surgery she can’t jump. So she puts her two front feet on the chair, then stomps her back feet trying to jump up. It is so cute but at the same time I feel a little sorry for her.

YES EXPECT TO SEE MANY MORE POLLY UPDATES SHE IS MY LIFE NOW

“E. L. Doctorow once said that ‘writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.’

You don’t have to see where you’re going, [and] you don’t have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice about writing, or life, I have ever heard.”

— Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

P.S. You can now also find me on Facebook, if you’d like to follow along over there! (Link is here.) It’s been a long time since I’ve started out new on a social network, so I’m definitely feeling a liiiittle out-of-place. 🙈 I think it’s important to stretch my wings a bit, though, so I’m just going to take Anne Lamott’s advice and focus on powering through..  ✨

     scott had sent rebel a quick text, letting his ex know that he was leaving the bar to meet up with him and grab his own things. although he didn’t act like it, he was actually torn up about their sudden break up. but scott knew it would be better if he wasn’t attached to someone he could possibly hurt - someone he truly cared about. the bar had left him in a little bit of a drunken haze. it was enough to make him stumble over his own two feet and send multiple misspelled words throughout his texts. though he hoped rebel wouldn’t notice as he knocked on the door. / @unholygospels

You’re about to bloom
You look so pretty, but you’re gone so soon

I’ll get my shit back together, get right where I belong

Take Me Home [Open RP]

Dan had been out drinking all night, he usually didn’t drink much but tonight he wanted to forget the world. Only this time he went a bit over board and drunk so much that he could barely stand on his own two feet. It was the middle of the night and there weren’t many people on the street except for those who were the same as him and those hoping to get some out of those people. 

Dan tried to focus on the road as he walked home, but his legs gave up under his weight. He sat down against a building as he rested his head against the brick. ‘’Whatever’’ He mumbled to himself as he closed his eyes, waiting for anything to happen.

Grey’s Anatomy: Almost Grown
We all want to grow up. We’re desperate to get there, to grab all the opportunities we can… to live. We’re so busy trying to get out of that nest… We don’t think about the fact that it’s going to be cold out there… really freakin’ cold. Because growing up sometimes means leaving people behind. And by the time we stand on our own two feet… we’re standing there alone.
