I'm terrible at getting to work on time. Even if I get up on time, which I rarely do, I can't get ready I'm daydreaming or playing on my phone. I swear I need somebody to be my alarm because setting alarms doesn't work. Any suggestions?

  1. Don’t allow yourself phone time in the morning.
  2. Have a bunch of things ready to go before you go to bed, so that you just have to get up and do them and be done.
  3. Find a way to incorporate your daydreaming into getting ready. For example, “while I’m brushing my teeth, I can think about X!”
  4. Make a playlist of energizing music for your mornings and have each song be for a specific activity or group of activities. Make it a contest with yourself to see if you can “beat the song/playlist.”

Followers, any other ideas?

so this time last year i was really lonely. i don’t have anything even closely resembling a social life irl, i go to work, i visit my parents and grandparents, and i go to church when i can manage. i don’t have any online friends that live on this side of the planet so i never met up with people, and i’ve only got one irl friend that i manage to see every few months. the only socialisation i got was online, but it was sporadic and unorganised. i didn’t speak to many people on here, even though its where i spent all my time, so i felt like i was in a bit of a vacuum, like i just didn’t really have any other humans to communicate with? it was so isolating, i used to write about it in my night journal to try and vent, but it didn’t make anything feel better really.

one year on and my real life is pretty much exactly the same, but i feel like everything is different. my online communication and tumblr relationships have developed so much in the last year and i feel so much more connected to people. i can’t even explain how much of a difference its made, even just how much happier i am. i still feel geographically isolated but i don’t feel alone, and i wanna say how much i really appreciate everyone that i talk to on here, and those of you i’m mutuals with. you all have no idea how big an impact you’ve had in my life over the last 12 months. i just wanted to say thankyou to all of you for making me feel less lonely.

I'm curious about how you find all these shops? I know it's probably a lot of browsing but are there certain sites or places that help you?

I browse Etsy a lot, mostly because it’s a very good search engine and also has a blog where it features a lot of products and shops. You can follow people on Etsy too, and find more products and shops through those accounts by viewing their likes and what not. 

I also look to Instagram quite a bit when looking for indie shops. I pretty much exclusively follow shops on my instagram and just go through their followers/following to find more that I might like. 

Another way is by looking at local markets, or any market really. This doesn’t mean actually attending them (though that is the best way to experience them), but to view them online. Most will have websites showcasing the artists who attend the markets, or you can even go through their pictures on social media where they will usually shout out featured stalls. 

I also look out for magazines that may feature indie artists/shops too! I think there may be websites which can help you search through indie stores, however I haven’t really found any which work for me.

Overall, it’s just about knowing where to look and what keywords to use in search engines. It can take a lot of time, which is why I like to collect all the neat products I find and submissions I get onto this blog! It’s a lot easier than searching through hundreds of links, and I try to keep it as organised as possible, though I do need to update my tags/pages.

If you need anything else, feel free to ask! Hope this helped.

For the last few months, I’ve come to realize that it’s time for some significant changes in my life.

1. My level of burnout is pretty high. Nothing I can do seems to get me out of that. 32 years of social work.

2. I’m not really interested in maintaining this home any longer. I love gardening, but it’s another full time job, as is running this house.

3. I have no real ties to Seattle, except for A, and the Sisters…but I can go on missionary status, and A might be interested in the adventure too.

My goal in a three year period is as follows:

a. Pay down the mortgage as much as possible;

b. Possibly take a second job;

c. Whittle away at belongings, give away or sell most of my books, kitchenware, and stuff;

d. Prepare the house for sale.

e. Sell the house, pay off remaining mortgage/bills, bank the rest.

f. Buy a small travel trailer, and go. Work as I need to, in kitchens or gardens, and see my friends.

I had a realization a month ago that I’d never get to retire. So if i have to work til I die? I want to do it on my terms.

Hey, my name is Logan. I was wondering if I pass at all?


The angle of the photos makes it a little difficult to tell… 

Although, I think you would be okay in a liberal area. I’d take caution (just for safety reasons) going to the men’s room in a conservative location. 

Followers, any suggestions? 

Hello, my dearest followers ^^

First of all sorry for the lack of updates. To make an excuse for myself at first I was so busy I couldn’t find time to log in on tumblr and now since I was absent for such a long time it feels awkward to post anything (I’m not sure if I’m making any sense right now …..). But I will try to post at least once a day from now on.

Now back to why I decided to write this lengthy post today :D 
I’m planning to go on a trip with my friends this October, most likely to Vilnius. Since it will be my first time in Lithuania I have some questions concerning this trip. 
If there is anyone here who has been or is living in or near Vilnius right now I would like to ask some questions and also hear any kind of advice so please do write to me <3

Thank you in advance~~

But yeah. Anyway if you go to brencisblog.wordpress.com thats where it is.

anonymous asked:

I've always had trouble telling romantic attraction and platonic attraction apart. I've been in relationships in the past, but I just saw my partners as really close friends, and nothing more. I only dated them because I thought it's what I was supposed to do. I like hand holding and hugging, if it's with someone I'm super close to, but never get the urge to kiss someone. I desire companionship, but I don't think I desire it in a romantic sense. Do you think I might be aromantic?

hello anon!

Whilst I don’t make it my place to say whether someone is aromantic, but you will find many aromantics that feel the same way as you do,

They like being social, and they like going out, but without any attention/affection that is romantic

What do my followers say?

jazzhands966 replied to your post: please… someone… i really don’t want the same 3…

I click the little x in the corner. And make it go away. It will still recommend you other things with that tag (or of the other tags you are following)

There is no X and i don’t follow any of the tags on this

They are just throwing these three random fucking posts on the top of my dash as if they were posted by someone i follow;

AND IT’S ALWAYS ON TOP WHICH CONFUSED THE HELL OUT OF ME

If you follow me on twitter, I’ve been posting some audio posts about how drained I am dealing with fandom racism. How tiring it is to work towards a goal that seems impossible to reach. 

I’m having a bad night (which is annoying bcuz my bestie B only left me like 4 hours ago and immediately I wound up NOT OKAY) and questioning why I’m even bothering to work on talking about fandom racism when so far, I can’t see where I’ve made any impact – much less a significant one.

I’m not going to share any of the audio here. It’s too uncontrollable tbh. But if you follow me on twitter and you care one bit about how dealing with fandom makes me feel, listen to my audio posts if you can. 

I guess.

I’m going to go back to watching dramas and maybe, at some point, I’ll head to bed. 

Ugh.

anonymous asked:

Sorry to bother you!! Can you recommend me some blogs that post lots of Steve Rogers and/or Stucky things without any traces of b*ckyn*t or st*ny ?

Basically every person in my Blogroll with the exception of one account is completely free of BN and St+ny. They’re not all posting a lot of Steve and Stevebucky though, most of the accounts I follow have become super multifandom except for like @sweetheartbarnes, @sunshinesebs @saintseb @andbarnes and @stevebuchy then the daily accounts like @dailybuckybarnes @dailyteamcap @stevebucky-daily @dailysteverogers

Hello my dear followers ^^ I just wanted to let you know that I will be going abroad for like a month to carry out my internship. I hope you understand that I will have to go on hiatus until I get back cause I don’t think that I will have any time to update ^^;

Also, this blog has almost 500 followers and it makes me incredibly happy. Thank you all guys! Have a nice month and happy early Halloween!

In the midst of all these “Humans will packbond with anything” posts, I’m going to pause and give you some actual, real-world career advice

Ready? 

Humans are packbondy creatures.  I mean, there’s just no arguing it.  They packbond readily, and quickly, and unbelievably strongly.  Once a human has packbonded with a thing, they will do anything to help and protect that thing.  

There’s a downside to that, not often mentioned.  It uses up a lot of their time and energy to build those packbonds, maintain those packbonds, and most especially to do the work of helping and protecting those with whom they have packbonded.  It doesn’t leave them a lot of time and energy for helping other beings. 

If you want a human to help you – if you want to reliably get their best effort – you have to packbond with them first.

Yeah? So?
So you’re probably going to be working with humans for most, if not all, of your career.  No matter how good or bad you are at your job, there will come a time when you need someone else in your workspace to help you with something, whether that’s manning the fry station for 2 minutes while you pee, sending over those numbers from marketing, or dropping everything to teach you how to do a thing that your boss told you to do or else you’d be fired.  

Not to mention the big things.  They don’t give promotions to just their friends – at least not so much any more. Promotions go to the people who’ve completed big, visible, important projects.  It seems fair until you consider,,,, who gets the big, important, visible projects assigned to them in the first place?  

Humans give boosts to the people they’ve packbonded with.  They mention packbondee’s accomplishments to the boss (or the boss’ boss).  They cover for the mistakes of people they’ve packbonded with.  

That’s not right! It shouldn’t be a popularity contest! It should be about who does the best –” 
Listen to me. 
Listen.

You may be right.  You may be the most correct creature to have ever spoken since the beginning of galactic civilization. 

It
does
not
matter

Humans packbond. It’s what they do. I can’t stop it. You can’t stop it.  No power in the ‘verse can stop it. This is how the human do.

All you can do is work with it. 

If you want a human to help you – if you want to reliably get their best effort – you have to packbond with them first.

Look, I’m introverted and scared of people and I have social anxiety so I really don’t know how to –”
Hey, my pal, I feel you.  I, too, am introverted. And I have social anxiety. And I have PTSD that actually – and I recognize that this is bizarre – has ‘business networking’ as a trigger.  

For you, I have good news:
Humans will packbond with anything.  

Like, you don’t really actually have to do anything. You kinda just have to… exist. In their presence. They kinda do the rest.  

If you can talk with them, that speeds things up.  But it doesn’t have to be, like, good conversation. Like, it can totally go

You: boy, sure is hot out!
Human: Man oh man, can you believe it?
You: Wow, yeah
Human: Totally
You: ….
Human: ….

This conversation – as awkward and uncomfortable as it felt to you, has caused this human to packbond with you a little more. If you repeat it weekly, you will get good results. 

THE TAKEAWAYS

  • You need to packbond with the humans you come in contact with
  • Taking time to do that is not only justifiable, it is an important part of your job, and should be treated as such
  • That is to say that, as much as you hate it (and believe me, I understand), you have to take time away from actual work and dedicate it to packbonding with your fellow workers

Tips

  • Plan out your packbonding time. It’s easier if you can initiate than if a human springs packbonding-time on you all unexpected.  In an office job I like to use Friday afternoon, but adjust according to what makes sense to you and your situation.
  • Keep some packbonding-time questions handy.  My go-to list is:
    • (If it’s Monday or Tuesday) How was your weekend?
    • (If it’s Wednesday) How’s your week been so far?
    • (If it’s Thursday or Friday) Any big plans for the weekend?
    • How’s your day been?
  • You don’t have to care about the answers to these questions. All you have to do is remember that if the human is answering questions, they are not asking you any questions.  Therefore questions are your friend.  If you ask follow-up questions, you may be able to get through the entire packbonding time without having to do any of the talking
  • Learn to disengage from packbonding.  You can use basically the same sentence (or variants on it), but you’ll want to practice it so that you can make it sound natural.  I use “Awesome! Well, I gotta get going. Have a good one!”

I know it feels overwhelming, but a few minutes of packbonding, once a week, is all you need.  Once you build it into your habits it can be no more annoying than doing dishes or showering.  

hey, so im a 16 year old trans guy who was outed to my family two years ago. since then, theyve gone from thinking it was a phase to being actively transphobic. my mom literally refers to me as “s/he”, both my parents refer to me as delusional and have repeatedly told me im selfish for wanting to transition. ive resigned myself to having to put up with this until im 18, but when im legally an adult i want to be completely financially independent from them so they cant hold back my transition by threatening to cut me off. ive already given up on going to college, because i have no way of paying without their help. ive applied to several jobs, but haven’t been hired anywhere yet. my paypal is paypal.me/theartofdestruction if any of yall want to donate. im currently really bad at digital art, but i can draw you something on paper for $5-$10. if all of my followers donated $1, id be able to transition & start a new life where im not constantly afraid. please, donate or rb if you can. this means the world to me

I know this is a lesbian blog but I do want to make a quick shout out to my bi sisters:
Being bi isn’t a phase and you deserve better than someone who tells you that.
Being bi isn’t a “gateway sexuality” to being straight or gay and you deserve better than someone who thinks that.
Being bi doesn’t make you “more likely to cheat” and you deserve better than anyone who believes that.
Being bi doesn’t give you any privilege (no matter the gender of your partner) and you deserve better than someone who claims that.
Being bi is a good thing and you deserve someone who embraces you the way you are 100% and loves and supports you ❤❤❤

hannibal + @screenshotsofdespair (1/?)

Okay, so my family’s been watching the weather channel as of late, and my dad’s shipping hurricanes.

HE’S. SHIPPING. HURRICANES!

He’s convinced what’s been going on off the coast is just one big soap opera.

You see, you got Jose, who’s been following Irma around like a lovesick puppy dog. And why not? Irma is a big girl, she’s got a great eye, Cat 4, who wouldn’t want a gal like that? However, Irma didn’t seem to be paying much attention to Jose, the poor guy. And by the time Jose even gets to the coast, Irma’s already gone out to sea and died. The love of his life is gone forever! So what does poor Jose do? He goes out to sea to sulk, only to come back in a post-depressive rage over the loss of his true love! He never got to be with his dear Irma (though honestly Irma was already way out of his league to begin with).

But NOW here comes the real twist. Cuz guess who’s come chasing after Jose?

Maria, Jose’s Cat 5 wife who is not happy at all about him running off to be with another woman. (Literally the MINUTE we heard about Maria my dad shouted, “Oh no Jose was married!” I kid you not he’s serious about this.) 

So Jose’s now running from Maria, who’s big and angry and ready to smack him around like no tomorrow and we’re staying tuned til the next episode of our new favorite show.

My dad’s calling it, “As The Tide Turns”. I have no words except these.
