Underestimating Lance is not the smartest of moves- he may be a goofball on the surface, but in reality he’s one of the most crucial and powerful members of Voltron. No, not because he’s the Sharp-Shooter or anything, he’s even greater than that.

In the end, I firmly believe he’s the team’s Bard. And all of his failed flirting and everything up to this point in the series has just been him getting the worst roles. But when things get close, at some point, I am positive that he’s gonna get that one role that gets the main villain on their side, and pretty much save the campaign for the team.

…Ok I don’t know if that’ll actually happen, but I’m really really hopeful. And, again like in one of my previous posts, I just really want Lotor to be the one person out of everyone they’ve met to find Lance attractive and think his jokes are funny. xD

Summary: Place two strangers together and give them seven days to fall in love, and they will be soulmates for the rest of eternity, otherwise, neither of the two will come to love anyone ever again; The Seven Days Countdown has always been an old wives tale to you and nothing more, but all of that changes once you meet Kim Taehyung in the midst of a crowd of thousands. From then on, your life is thrown into a race against time, not only on a mission to beat the clock in falling in love with the renowned heartthrob, but also on a quest to make him fall in love with you.

Honestly, the best thing about cast recordings is that every time you listen to them, you discover something new. Something as simple as “woah, those hard-to-hear violins are maybe the coolest thing on this whole album,” or “wait a minute, in this song, there’s an underlying melody from a previous one that adds another layer and another message.” It’s really amazing how much detail songwriters and lyricists and orchestrators pay attention to, even when they’re not even sure that anyone will notice.

Some Tips on Being a Senior Student

There are sooo many posts on how to make the most out of your first year of university/college, but very few on what to do when you’re reaching the end of those years and are about to enter the Real Real World. This post is to help you make that last year count!

1) Focus on your grades!

This is the time when having good grades is the most important. By now, you’ve gotten into some sort of studying rhythm and know what works for you, so use that to your advantage to put in a little extra effort and push. No-one really cares about your grades from previous years if your grades at the end are awesome. If you have some kind of capstone project, make sure that it is done really well so that you can use it as an example of your work!

2) Get familiar with Careers’ Services

If your university has a Careers’ Services office, make an appointment with them. Chances are, they will have tonnes of professional advice on how to improve your CV/resumé, interview training, and connections to companies that want to hire graduates!! Often, these services are free!! Use them!! 

3) Spice up your CV!

As awesome as your transcript and degree may be, plenty of people will have the same degree as you. Go over your past few years and make a list of all the extracurriculars you did. Did you write for the university newspaper? Treasurer of the MSA? Run a pretty successful instagram and blog? Add it to your CV (resumé for you Americans). If you’re not sure about how to make it sounds “professional”, don’t be afraid to list it in terms of the skills you learn rather than your actual position (if in doubt, refer to point 2).

4) Build a professional wardrobe

When you’re out shopping for clothes and you see a cute blazer or comfortable shirts/blouses on sale, give them a try. It’s so much better to show up for a interview in clothes that you’ve gotten used to and are comfortable in, than a brand new suit that’s awkward and feels like you’re playing dress-up in. Try incorporating some “professional” clothing pieces into your everyday wear every now and then so you can figure out what you like wearing and what’s your style. It’s also a lot cheaper to build up a wardrobe over time rather than buying things all at once for your new job.

5) Organise your opportunities

Get a spreadsheet with job/post-graduate applications going. Sort by application date. If you hear of a cool-sounding graduate programme, make a note of it and research it as soon as possible. Competition can be tough, so be prepared for rejections. If you’re thinking of taking a post-graduate gap year (which is what I’m considering at the moment), look for short courses, internships, part-time work or how you’re going to save money to travel and organise that. There are lots of options!

5) Network effectively

By now, you probably have a favourite professor or three who thinks you’re a pretty decent kid! Rather than trying to go to everyone’s office hours (probably the most common college advice on studyblr), talk to your favourite profs in passing, ask them for projects or how their day is going. They’re really great people and excellent mentors.

6) Keep contact with friends and family

I know it’s difficult, but it is really important to have that social and emotional support available. It can be tough, but you will really appreciate having people who you can call on or just to spend time with. 

7) It’s okay to not have anything figured out yet

Science majors and Humanities majors often have the same problem - the incessant “so what are you going to do with that physics/english/history/biology/philosophy degree? Become a teacher?” questions. If you want to be a teacher - that’s awesome - but if you don’t, this question can be the most frustrating. Yes, you know that you won’t be getting a 5-figure starting salary like your cousin who did an engineering/medical/accounting degree, but at least you spent your time studying something you enjoyed! It’s okay to not have an immediate plan of action for what you’re going to do after graduating, but you’ll figure it out eventually! There really is no rush.


I hope this post is helpful! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to message me or send an ask! Don’t forget to take the coolest graduation pictures ever! Happy studying!

anonymous asked:

What are you talking about, Acchan? You're disappointing me :( Of course Hide is the puppetmaster in Tokyo Ghoul. He is Uta, after all. And Uta is the puppetmaster. He transcends everything. He's the oppressors, he's the oppressed. Uta is the birdcage itself.

LOL oh, but you’re misunderstanding me Anon :)) Obviously Uta is everyone, including Hide, but still, Uta is no puppetmaster, nor are all the characters that he impersonates. Uta is a troll and an observer, but even if he transcends everything, he’s not 100% responsible of everything that happened which is why he’s no puppetmaster. xDD

MORE SERIOUSLY THO Anon, about the “Uta is the birdcage itself” part of your joke, I’ve been wondering lately about how accurate this kind of statement might be (not in the literal sense obviously), because I’m wondering if the old OEK is not one of the Clowns, since Roma said:

I know that I wrote that crack theory about the old OEK being Noro but I’m not 100% convinced yet, mostly because Kaneki’s side is convinced that the previous OEK is still alive.

So anyway, my initial suspect about the OEK being one of the Clowns was Itori because…

amongst all the subjects that she was knowledgeable about (”the truth”, the hybrids, also her calling Roma “her protégée”), but recently I’ve been wondering about Uta as the OEK because…

because (a tattoo to cover that he had only one kakugan)

Because (the tattoos’ meaning??)

BECAUSE (skull symbolism fits)

BECAUSE 

AND

Finally…

…such an ideology would fit the figure of the OEK as we’ve seen with Kaneki who’s striving for coexistence.

((Here’s an imgur link to see all the pictures in HD))

SO ANON YOU SEE I DON’T KNOW FOR SURE BUT I’M ACTUALLY REALLY SUSPICIOUS OF UTA BEING THE PREVIOUS ONE EYED KING AND THUS BEING AT THE HEART OF THE CURRENT PLOT.

Of course this doesn’t make a lot of sense with the flashback in TG vol 12 that he told Kaneki about him and Yomo, but it’s Uta and he could have lied, or there is a way around the flashback and we just haven’t figured out what it is yet.


TL;DR the previous OEK seems to be the reason the birdcage was created so if Uta is the previous OEK then “Uta is the birdcage itself” isn’t a completely wrong statement in itself Anon. 

So you see that’s why I really like to prank people with Uta because I’m quite sure that he has a big role to play aaaand the fact that he’s currently my n°1 suspect for “who’s the previous OEK” isn’t helping. 

Thanks for passing by Anon and nice try with the joke-that-might-in-fact-not-be-one. :3 Have a nice day!

happy birthday, our blue boy

lance thinks no one remembers about his birthday. he doesn’t mention it because they have more important things like saving the universe. so lance sits quietly in his room, repeating the names of his parents, siblings, nephews. he tries to remember their faces and panics a little when he needs more than usually to remember his little niece’s laugh and the way her eyes would light up whenever she talked about something she loved. 

he used to have a picture of all of them from his mother’s birthday but he lost it on one of the missions, so now all he had was his imagination and he was scared that they look different in his mind than they really do. 

when the clock hits midnight, lance mutters a quiet “happy birthday to me”, but then the alarm roars through the castle. lance runs out of his room but he can’t find anyone else. suddenly he hears hunk’s scream, he was shouting lance’s name from one of the hangars. blue’s hangar.

it doesn’t take lance long to get there because despite what everyone else thinks, he’s quick to react when he knows that something is wrong. but when he enters the hangar, his lion is where it always was. it’s dark and suddenly very quiet. 

“what is it, girl? where’s hunk?” lance asks, putting one hand on blue, but there’s no answer. lately he got a lot better at communicating with her, so it’s weird that she doesn’t want to talk to him, especially on his birthday. it’s not like she knew, lance was sure even hunk was too busy to actually remember.

after few seconds, blue opens her mouth. a clear message for lance, get in here. so he does, still not sure what to make of all this. the inside of his lion doesn’t light up the way it usually does when lance walks inside but lance is sure he can hear something…

“surprise!” the loud scream is in a perfect sync with the lights that suddenly burst around lance. the boy is so shocked he almost falls on his ass when he sees his friends in front of him.

hunk, pidge, allura, shiro, coran. even keith, despite their loud argument that happened after yesterday’s mission. lance looks from one face to another, feeling the tears forming in his eyes. they remembered.

“you guys even have a cake!” lance squeals with excitement, blinking rapidly to make sure it’s not a dream. but no, there it is, in allura’s hands. a cake that looks almost like the ones he got for his previous birthdays.

“we didn’t really know much about the traditions on earth but the other paladins helped us a lot,” coran explains cheerfully. 

and lance lets the tears fall because they didn’t have to do anything. they were fighting zarkon and the galra could attack at any moment, but his friends remembered and did all this… for him. he wants to tell them he doesn’t deserve this, that he wouldn’t be upset if they didn’t remember. but he can’t utter a single word, he just stares at them and feels like the love and happiness will flood out of him any minute now.

hunk steps out first, holding something bright in his hands. “we know how much you miss the earth. we all do, but i’m pretty sure you want to go back the most,” he starts, looking at his best friend. “coran told me you miss the sunlight the most, so… it’s not really the same but me and pidge made this for you from the quintessence. it’s not as hot as the sun, but it’s always warm and the light looks very similar,” hunk explains. 

then he puts his gift in lance’s hands and lance shivers. it’s a small ball made of glass with quintessence inside. it’s bright, yellow and so warm. yes, it’s not like the sun, but it’s still more than lance could have asked for. he couldn’t remember when was the last time he actually saw the sunlight, but what he held in his hands right now was probably the closest he’ll get to it in a long time.

“thank you guys,” he sniffles, half-hugging hunk and ruffling pidge’s hair. he can’t stop looking at the yellow light shining through his fingers, he’s afraid that if he’ll turn his gaze away, it will burn out and lance will be in the darkness again.

but then keith comes closer, awkwardly clearing his throat and scratching his neck with his free hand. in another one he holds something small. at first keith’s not saying anything, he just pushes something into lance’s chest so the taller boy has to give hunk his small sun to take what keith gave him. he looks down and breath catches in his throat. 

it’s a picture of lance’s family, the one lance thought he had lost forever. it was put in a blue frame with little stars on it. the picture was worn out because lance always kept it folded in a pocket of his jeans or tucked under his uniform, but it was right there and lance couldn’t believe his eyes.

“how did you-”

“i found it,” keith cuts him off in a rush and when lance looks up he can see a blush on his cheeks. keith doesn’t quite meet his eyes. “one time when you got off your lion, you dropped this and i found it. i wanted to give it back but we were all tired after the mission, so i just left it in my room and kind of… forgot about it? yeah, and then we were in this space mall and i saw this frame, so i thought that if you put your picture in it, you wouldn’t lose it again, and then hunk mentioned your birthday and…” keith rambles, unable to stop. lance hears shiro’s chuckle from behind but all he can see is keith.

keith who usually fights with lance, keith who acts like he doesn’t care about anything, keith who actually notices more than anyone. keith who, in some ways, brought lance’s family back to him when lance thought they’re so far away. lance pulls keith into a hug, squeezing him so hard he’s sure a little more pressure would break keith’s ribs. it’s awkward at first because keith isn’t used to being hugged. but it’s not that keith doesn’t like hugs, lance knows that for a fact, he’s just touch-starved, so after a moment he returns the hug, relaxing a little.

“thank you so much,” lance chokes out, trying to get a hold of his own emotions because damn it, he’s not a crybaby.

keith pats his back. “don’t sniffle on my jacket.”

lance laughs and pushes keith away, and then shiro tells him to make a wish and blow the candles, so lance does. he closes his eyes and thinks “go back home with all of my friends after defeating zarkon”, then he blows all of the candles.

“happy birthday, our sharpshooter,” shiro says, hugging lance.

and when lance looks at their faces again, sees their smiles, hears their laugh, he thinks that it is. it is a happy day. he turns to thank them again, and that’s when he hears blue’s voice in his head, soft and caring. she says,

“happy birthday, our blue boy.”

lance thinks it sounds almost like his mamá. it’s almost like he’s… home.

SKETCHY BEHAVIORS | Heather Benjamin (RH)

Through her dense and detailed packed line drawings to her more focused ink brush pieces, Rhode Island based artist Heather Benjamin’s work is visceral, cathartic, and autobiographical. It offers a completely unapologetic and unflinching look into an artists’ own struggles with life, body image, self confidence, and sexuality.  We find her and her art to be inspirational, honest and badass.

We recently ran into Heather at her booth at the LA Art Book Fair and caught up with her a few months later to ask about her art, her experiences at RISD, her influences, and her thoughts about her work and her life.

As promised, another tiny DeanCas Coda to 13x04 (also because I posted my first one incomplete I AM SO SORRY)

They making out on Dean’s bed, and he’s still having trouble processing: the fact that Cas is alive, that he’s here, that they’re kissing and touching and laying in bed together like it’s the easiest thing in the world.

And it is.

Yeah, Cas is a little stiff and awkward in his movements… but if Dean’s being honest with himself, so is he. He just—he doesn’t wanna fuck this up, that’s all. And as much as he’d fantasized about Cas coming back and them falling into each other’s arms like nothing had changed, things had: for fuck’s sake, Cas had died. Death changes things; a little stiffness as Castiel gets back on his feet isn’t the end of the world. A little awkwardness as they learn how to navigate the new dynamic between them is expected. And hell, they’ve worked past worse.

All that matters now is that Cas is home, and that they’re together.

So, Dean hums into their kisses and shivers when Castiel says his name. He runs his fingers through dark hair and is grateful.


Castiel has been walking for what seems like forever when he feels it, abruptly and without fanfare; between one step and the next, the ache of constant longing beneath his ribs fades to nothing. Between one step and the next, his link to Dean is gone.

“No. Nonononono. Dean! Dean, don’t—please! Dean, STOP! I’m here! Dean, I’m HERE!” Cas swallows thickly allows himself to drop to his knees. He tries not to imagine what that thing must have done to make Dean’s longing fade, but images flash behind his eyes regardless: kiss him, maybe. Touch him. Know him.

I know who you love.

Righteous anger suddenly fills him to the brim, forcing him to his feet as he walks and rages. He will escape this place if it’s the last thing he does; if he has to wake every angel and demon here to do it.

OMG ANON THANK YOU! I always love getting requests, they’re so fun. I hope you like it anon! Tbh, I never considered writing a Minghao imagine, but I like how it ended up(:

Author’s note: I never really thought of writing a soulmate AU, but I decided that a reincarnation one was the only one that makes sense. I read soulmate AU’s a lot, and I love them, it’s just sometimes things don’t add up. Thats why Minghao’s names are different in his past life times, because I feel like that makes the most sense, also I just FINISHED GOBLIN. Which plays with the same idea and I will forever be obsessed with the grim reaper and sunny. THEY WERE SO DAMN CUTE. Someone hold me, I’m still recovering from the drama.
