9.26.2017

I had a test in chemistry today. It was brutal. I keep beating myself up over a couple tricky questions on activation energy and using the ICE table method to find equilibrium….perfection is a waste of time, i know…but still 100% are LIFE. Besides that, I feel I did good. This marks my first test since being back in school. Such a nostalgic feeling. But how on earth I averaged 14-15 credit hours a semester with 2 part-time jobs during my EE undergrad years is beyond me. Either I am old and lazier or sheer desperation to graduate kept me going in the past.

Right now, I am trying to organize all my notes, and in a way, cleanse my mind before I start writing this essay for physics class.

Side note: I started watching this anime called Another (I am starting halloween early this year haha) and it’s so freaking creepy and annoying at the same time. I cannot stop watching it. The animation is very nice but prepare yourself for gory scenes 0.0

October 10 2017 Rip the back to school challenge but anyways it feels like organic chemistry is consuming my life. I have a quiz tomorrow but right now I’m in bed ready to sleep in this abnormally warm weather :( MY NEW KANKEN (THANKS TO STUDYBUDDY) HAS MADE ITS DEBUT AND ITS SO WONDERFUL. I love kankens but this one is just gorgeous omg Anyways I had an 8am class so I’m going to take a nap lmao Someone remind me to study for the ochem quiz tomorrow sigh

Once I was struck by a car in the street. I was walking. And for maybe two seconds I had the impression that I was dying and it was really a very, very intense pleasure. The weather was wonderful. It was seven o'clock during the summer. The sun was descending. The sky was very wonderful and blue and so on. It was, it still is now, one of my best memories.[…] I’m not able to give myself and others those middle-range pleasures that make up everyday life. Such pleasures are nothing for me, and I am not able to organize my life in order to make place for them. That’s the reason why I’m not a social being, why I’m not really a cultural being, why I’m so boring in my everyday life. It’s a bore to live with me.
—  Michel Foucault, An Interview by Stephen Riggins

anonymous asked:

Hey there, I was wondering if you had any tips on working with Aphrodite and sharing your own experience? How did you know she was calling to you and everything and like what do you do for her? I want to be a devotee to her but I'm not sure what I'm doing....

🌹 Working with Aphrodite 🌹

General Tips

🌸 Creating a little space or altar dedicated to her is always helpful and it feels so much more organized and special, she’ll probably appreciate it a lot.

🌸 She’s honestly one of the best deities or even spirit in general that I have ever spoken with. She’s incredibly understanding, so if you dedicate yourself to her a certain way and you miss a day of doing whatever ritual you decide to do, don’t beat yourself up about it. She understands. Life happens.

🌸Offerings are great. You don’t always have to go all out and spend a shit ton of money. Don’t feel bad if you can’t do that. What genuinely matters to her is that there was thought put into it and such. (I’ll write what I have given her a bit later in this post)

🌸 She’s the type of deity to give lots of signs, I feel. Always be on the lookout for signs.

🌸 Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t hear her. Using divination is an easy way to talk to her. Especially pendulum. If the convo is one-sided, that’s okay, too. Don’t worry about her hearing you, because she will.

🌸 Practice self-love. She loves when you devote little acts of self-love to her. It can be small little things, too, like painting your nails, washing your face, cleaning your room, taking a shower, anything like that.


My Experience

Okay, so I began working with her not too long ago because I’ve been in kind of a rut. I needed support and I felt the need to work with a deity because I felt like it would almost help me organize my mind and life in general. And it has, honestly. It hasn’t been too long but I can confidently say that it’s already amazing.

I approached her with a gift. I painted a pink rose for her that I was very proud of and I poured some love into it, so I knew she’d love it. And she did. I immediately caught on how lovely of a being she was. Her energy is quite strong and when she wants something/wants me to know something, I know it.

The night I actually wanted to start working with her but had troubles at home, she gave me a prophetic dream that was pretty much going to change my life forever and I was so incredibly grateful. I may ask her to give me dreams more.

I find that whenever I have a problem, she’s always one of the first people I think about telling. For some reason it’s like the world stalls me from telling her, and by time I am able to tell her, the problem has already been resolved. I think that’s of her doing, though. It’s such a nice and protective feeling.

Offerings. What I have given her is water, the painting, and there was a set of earrings that my aunt got me when she went back to our home town in Greece and they had pearls on them so I dedicated them to her and I have them on her little altar space. Today, I plan on giving her a piece or two of my favorite chocolate. I also have a little cup of dried rose petals on her altar space.

In this rut I’m in, at least mostly in the beginning, I had trouble using my telepathy. I was born with this ability and naturally strengthened it over the years but because of trauma, it was kind of “calcified” in a way. At first, I was very hesitant to talk to Aphrodite because of this, but I leaped in anyways and she comforted me so much about it. I still have logs of our first chat session using tarot because I have a booklet that I write down anything witchy related that also has tarot logs so I can remember what answers I receive.

The more honest I am with her about my feelings and the more I take care of myself, the more connected to her I feel. I legit have a face scrub dedicated to her now. I clean my room a lot and take baths a lot for her because since it makes me feel good, it makes her feel good.

I’ll probably make an updated post with more in the future because I feel like I’ll have a ton more amazing experiences with her that I’m incredibly excited for! I hope this post was helpful, Nonny!

The types as how I (an ESTP) know them

Seen this around a lot, thought I’d do my own version.

I don’t know any ISFPs, so that type isn’t represented.

ISTJ- my lab coordinator- Gets off on organizing. Plans her future out to the T, but then a curveball hits and after about a day of freaking out she deals with it. Loves concerts, science, and cats. Organizes my life for me, and we get along very well.

ISFJ- research coworker- I don’t really know her well, but she is pretty quiet. Serious and focused, but not afraid to crack a smile here and there. Somehow remembers everyone’s birthdays despite only knowing us for two months. Also (I think) very scared of me. 

INFJ- friend- I ADMIRE HER AESTHETIC SO MUCH. Seriously, this girl keeps it classy everywhere. Insta? She has a color coordinated layout. Snapchat? Only the most sophisticated snaps any 19 year old I know has every taken. Twitter? Barely touches it. Uses periods at the end of everything, which makes her sound SO COOL. Kinda wanna be her, kinda wanna be dating her. 

INTJ- cousin- most driven person I know. Loves animals more than people. 100% left-brained, and the best person to go to for a logical opinion on anything. Butttt fucks up in her personal life a lot. Clingy as hell (but this is coming from an ESTP so take it with a grain of salt tbh)

ISTP- roommate- the most slytherin of all the slytherins. Super funny, sarcastic, and always down for an adventure. Weird obsession with Garfield. Watches the most TV out of anyone I know.

INFP- friend- the calmest voice EVER. The calmest person, really. A great listener, and always zen @ life. Brilliant at orgo. Surprisingly a very good rapper as well. 

ESTP- myself and my friend- our version of an icebreaker is, “hey, wanna go skydiving?” Surprised when people say no to an adventure. Cannot sit in one place and study for more than 3 hours at a time without doing something crazy, like a push-up contest in the middle of the library, to keep our sanity. 

ESFP- acquaintance- ok the first people to start any drama ever. Extra af but also great to talk to when you need to be extra af and rant/yell/complain/anything. Can go from ‘too cool for you’ to a literal puppy in five seconds. 

ENFP- best friend- A PUPPY IN HUMAN FORM. Most scatterbrained person to exist. Multiple internships, research positions, volunteer obligations, etc. a week and somehow manages to do all of it and still be bored. 

ESTJ- boyfriend- Secretly always in control, even when someone is in control. Has a backup plan for the backup plan. Fun and enthusiastic, but also kind of cautious and takes a step back before he jumps into anything. 

ESFJ- best friend- literally follows through on everything she ever says. “I’m getting lunch with you sometime this week” you bet your ass she is going to schedule this lunch, plan it, color coordinate it in her journal, and show up five minutes early with the menu already looked over online. Pushes you to be the best version of yourself by calling you out on bs you didn’t even realize you had. 

ENFJ- ex boyfriend- cheesy as hell. Loves anime, metal, and Bethoven. Most random, adaptable person I’ve yet to meet. Has a lot of feelings. 

ENTJ- brother- Holds himself with a very naturally intelligent aura. Cares a lot about his reputation and how he appears. Very hardworking and smart. Can be demeaning or rude without realizing it. Bases his self worth on his academic achievements.

ENTP- friend- craziest life story I’ve ever heard. Came over my place after a car crash very casually like ‘yeah my car just got totalled but its whatever so i heard you had pizza’ like what???? Almost always awake at 4 AM and watching the Office. Great ideas, but not enough willpower to execute them. 

INTP- friend- nerdiest person ever. Hates on himself way too much. Intelligent, funny, and sarcastic. Has a lot of emotions but doesn’t know what to do with them so ends up making stupid decisions with girls he likes and then ignoring that person forever.

So I grew up living my entire life without ever making my bed. (I also grew up never really getting rid of anything either, but that’s a different story.) My parents never set that standard on me and I rarely had friends or judgy relatives up in my room. So it was safe to say that when I read @unfuckyourhabitat both in blog and in book form I was vehemently against the whole concept of making my bed every day. What’s the point? If I keep the rest of the space clean, why would I need to make it? Why tuck in the sheet corners when I prefer cocooning in my own set of blankets? To add a secondary complication to the mix, my wife and I don’t share blankets at all. (She gets the comforter, I get two fuzzy blankets and the sheet.) After 24 years of living an un-made bed life, how do I make the bed in such a way that works for me and my wife’s lifestyle?
The answer, of course, was to put one iota of effort into research and creative planning. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this practice of individual sheets is common overseas and I got a couple great ideas. This is my method in making the bed in the laziest way possible:
I start out laying on my side of the bed with my bundle of linens before me. I take my blankets and sheet and I straighten them out from this pseudo laying/sitting position as I’m able to use my legs to make them nice and even. Then I slip out and go to my wife’s side. She’s got this lil soft blanket she likes to cuddle with so I throw that flat on her side and then spread the comforter all over that. We have three pillows apiece, so I jus make sure I keep the tan ones at the top because I don’t know it looks nice I guess. (*ultimate shrug*) All in all, it takes me like 3 minutes to do this method and it comes out nice enough for what I’m looking for.
I committed to making the bed like this for an entire week, and I can officially say that I’ve been recruited to the dark side. This was something I thought was stupid and useless, but was I discovered was that it did bring a tiny, positive ray of nice aesthetic into our small bedroom. It feels nice at the end of the day to slip into a bed that you don’t have to fight with the blankets to rearrange after they’ve been balled up from the night before.
The biggest thing I learned about “making the bed” is that there is no one “true ” way to make it. As long as it’s organized and flat, who cares if the loose linens are tucked into the sides? It’s your bed! Make the system work for you!
TL;DR As one person who thought this bed making practice was useless and nonessential, it turned out to be a nice addition to my newly organized life. You don’t have to make the bed the way that mother taught you. Give yourself some flexibility (and get creative from internet sources) and the end result should make everyone happy.
So thanks @unfuckyourhabitat for yelling at me to “Make Your Bed!” every day. I don’t think I ever would have done this without you.

January has been an extremely busy month so far with lots going on, including a lot of travel. So I haven’t had time to post/do my bullet journal. I’m glad to be home and get back into it and organizing my life. I did the page on the left on the first of January and then thought I’d add the page on the right today. Also testing out some new pens I got including some Tombow brush markers. Which are amazing!

Witchcraft for the Home : Cleaning Edition

Originally posted by prinsomnia

So for me cleaning in and of itself is a ritual. Cleaning my home is how I destress and organize my life, and how I help good energy flow into my home. For me clean counters are as important to my craft as Sage. So hear are a small list of things I do when cleansing my home.


🌱First things first. Open the GD windows. You have no idea how awful the stale air in your home is until you let some fresh air in. Especially if you live in a small apartment like I do. You’d be amazed how quickly that alone can lift the bad energy in your home.

🌱I wipe down my counters and such with those little wet wipe cleaning things. When I buy them I add a tiny drop of Frankincense essential oil and orange blossom essential oil to them and shake them up (I buy the none scented ones so that it doesn’t get all weird smelling) 

🌱Same goes for floor cleaner. Add a small drop of whatever cleansing oil you like to clean your laminate or tiles floors. DO NOT ADD ANYTHING WHEN CLEANING REAL HARD WOOD. If you have real hard wood floors adding oils to your hard wood floor cleaner can mess with the ph and screw up your floors

🌱Put some moon water in your oil diffuser while you’re cleaning to help balance out the energy in your house

🌱Sprinkle some salt in the carpet right before you vacuum it up to pull up those bad vibes as well as the gross stuff in your carpets. 

🌱Tidy up your altar. I don’t know about you but for me I could have a perfectly clean room and if my altar is a little cluttered then the room doesn’t feel clean. Making sure my tools are put away and my offering dish is clean is important. 

🌱When sweeping, sweep the dust out the front door if you can. (Don’t sweep like, trash or anything out).

🌱Once everything is clean and fresh light some incense. I normally choose clove or vanilla to make my apartment feel cozy

Hiii bub, I don’t actually blog about fic that much rip, even though I read a lot but I should start doing it. Anyway, here are some of my faves, in no particular order and I’ve probably left out half of it.

this is just off the top of my head babe, but I’d definitely suggest going to @loveloveolivia‘s fic rec tag (and also read all her fic). Also check out anything @alivingfire and @afirethatcannotdie rec/talk about in regards to writing. @conscious–ramblings has great recs too.

New semester 2017

The first week of february was really busy because I had to study for my last exam and also because the new semester started and I still need to organize my life better. 
I was so stressed that I needed to cuddle myself, so I bought myself some cute lingerie from oysho and a book. (Yes, let’s say it was a self-gift for Valentine’s day even if I don’t have neither a boyfriend nor a girlfriend, but that’s what it’s for. Treat yourself <3)

via how-to-get-away-with-study

Hey everyone! Like many of you, I have a bullet journal that I use to organize my entire life. From college to work to my personal life, I have everything sorted out within my bujo. So I thought I would give a little walk through guide of what it looks like. Also, I apologize that the lighting isn’t great, but my desk is in a dark corner and my desk lamp is all I have.

Leuchtturm 1917

I have one of the more popular notebooks among studyblrs,a Leuchtturm 1917. It is in my favorite color, blue. It does it’s job fine, although I can’t say I’m in love with Leuchtturm, especially since the pages are somewhat on the thin side. I do like that it has an index section as well numbered pages, but I think I’ll switch to a different brand after I fill this one up.

Key/Index

I decided on a simple spread for my key page, and left room so I can expand it in the future if I wish. I have basic symbols for events, dates, birthdays, meetings, exams, etc. as well as specific colors for my individual classes as well as personal life.

Yearly Spread

Some people prefer a more detailed yearly spread, but I personally wouldn’t use it so I created a simple two page spread.

Bucket List and About Me

I wanted to do an “about me” page at the beginning and end of my bullet journal so I can do a comparison of what I was like between when I started and finished. It covers basic topics like hogwarts house, major, job, and favorites, and some of these have already changed. For example, I recently switched my major from Biology to Media Arts: Animation and Game Design. As for the bucket list, I thought I might as well add it in since I had an extra page.

Fall Semester

I love semester spreads, and honestly I wish I had fleshed this one out more but it has given me plenty of ideas for the spring. Although my schedule has changed a lot since I had to drop chemistry and change my work schedule, I still love the setup. It makes it easier to keep track of m academic and personal goals for the semester.

Monthly Spread

This has changed the most out of all the spreads I’ve done in my last two bullet journals. I tried to incorporate more artwork into my November spread, as well as trying a new cursive font for the header.

I try to keep monthly goals as well as semester goals. Some of the goals I have for this month includes: officially applying for college (I am only a dual enrollment student), and completing NaNoWriMo 2017.

Habit Tracker

This new habit tracker spread looks great, I am so happy with how it turned out. From artistic stuff (writing, art, and photography) to health (mood, steps, period, birth control) to NaNoWriMo I keep a record of it all.

Budget

Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of this spread as it is far from finished. But I use it every month to keep track of income from work and my spending. This is one of my more important spreads, as a poor college student I’m trying to make sure I don’t overspend. It’ll also be helpful one I get my first apartment next May and have to start paying rent and utilities.

Weekly Spread

I love the cute little ghost by the pumpkin, I doodled him for Halloween which I am super excited for. It’s also my boyfriend’s birthday this week. Such an exciting week, and it’s my first time using this spread. I’m happy for the extra space in the upper left corner for some doodling.

Finally, Extra Pages

Here and there I like to add extra pages, sometimes they’re playlists or specific checklists or books to read or just about anything you can imagine. Here I have a set up for my portfolio (for the colleges I’m applying to) and a college applications checklist. With college application deadlines coming up these have been immensely helpful in helping me to keep track of what I need to write, organize, and submit.
