If you're looking for any more costume ideas to add to the teletubbies one you thought of, I thought of a few: The Wizard of Oz Four, the Sex-Bob-Omb band members from Scott Pilgrim vs The World, The TMNT, The Four Musketeers, Fantastic 4, Toy Story Characters, ignore them if they're rubbish haha xx

Y/N: “Derek is the Cowardly Lion-”

Derek: “I honestly don’t know how to feel about that.”

Y/N: “Isaac is the Scarecrow-”

Isaac: “Well, now that’s just rude.”

Y/N: “I’ll be Dorothy, of course-”

Peter: “And let me guess, I’m the Tin Man, because I’m so heartless.”

Y/N: “Actually, no. I thought you should be Toto.”

Isaac: “Genius. Even without brains, I see the genius.”

Derek: “Agreed. I definitely didn’t have the guts to say that. With that kind of attitude, maybe you should play the Tin Man, Y/N.”

Y/N: “My first thought was Flying Monkey, but-”

psa for college freshman

hey, whats up, hello! so you’re gonna be a freshman and you’re probably moving in real soon, and you might be excited but also nervous, not to worry i got you! here are some tips and tricks and general advice based on my own experience. 

okay so step by step:


okay so this is easily the most stressful thing about the first week of school. you gotta get all of your stuff into a tiny dorm if it’s a big room i am literally so jealous my dorm was like a prison so don’t freak out, stay cool and pack efficiently!

  • try not to overpack, it’s really easy to believe you’ll need everything you’re bringing but trust me you won’t even look at half of it
    • a good tip for this is, if you don’t use it at home, don’t bring it to school! (plus it’s really easy to just buy stuff you need on amazon so don’t forget that that’s an option too)
  • if you’re going to a school that deals in snow, DON’T bring that stuff (jackets/hats/boots/etc) with you when you move in. if you know you’re going to go home for a weekend before the snow sets in, definitely leave it at home and bring it with you later!
  • let your parents/guardians/friends/family help you move in. it might not seem like a big deal, but letting them help you will make them feel better. and if you don’t like how they arrange things, let it be! you have all semester to rearrange and settle in, they only have this one day, so just let them have it! also don’t forget to thank them when they leave!


ah yes, the wonderful concepts of roommates. i was lucky my freshman year, but some people aren’t

  • try and connect with them via facebook/school emails/phone, settling things like are you gonna share a mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and how you’re gonna decorate (if you’re into that) will help when you finally settle into your room
  • definitely go over ground rules once you’re all unpacked and settled in. my dorm had us go over a list of questions, come to an agreement, and sign it in case there were any future conflicts. cover things like: 
    • is it okay to have my friends sit at your desk or on your bed when you aren’t there?
    • how should we handle overnight guests?
    • do you want me to give you a heads up if i have friends coming over?
    • 100% agree to give each other a heads up on parents coming to your room
    • sharing food?
    • cleaning responsibilities
    • definitely definitely give each other a copy of your class schedule, and if you have classes at the same time maybe you can agree to make sure you’re both awake at the right time!
  • you don’t have to be bff’s with your roommate, sometimes it turns out that way and sometimes it doesn’t. what you do need to be is open and honest with your roommate. your year will be miserable (especially if you can’t switch roommates) if you don’t communicate with each other. don’t be afraid to tell them if something is bothering you. if you’re to nervous to do that or don’t like confrontation, talk to your RA or RD

so now that we got all that out of the way, here are some general tips about social things:

  • that whole keep your door open and people will come talk to you think is a load of bs. me and my roommate did that for weeks and no one came in. everyone is just waiting for someone else to take that chance. so go into peoples rooms and ask them if they wanna grab lunch/dinner! walk around and poke your head in their room! it might be awkward as hell but at least you’re trying :)
  • go to all (or as many) dorm activities as you can! this allows you to meet more people too even if the event is really dumb, at least show up. you always have the option to leave!
  • go to club meetings! even if you aren’t sure you want to stay in the club. it’s much harder or maybe just more awkward to join when you’re an upperclassmen, so try and get those roots down as soon as you can
  • that being said, you can always leave a group without any hard feelings. people do it all the time, so don’t be scared that once you go to one meeting you’re stuck in the group forever
  • don’t let anyone tell you that as a freshman you can’t get involved. if you want to, you can. there is absolutely nothing stopping you. you might have to work a bit harder but i know you can do it!
  • sometimes freshman year can suck, or at least have it’s moments. don’t give up. everything gets infinitely better as time goes one, i promise. if you’re having a tough time or feel isolated or overwhelmed, reach out to someone, a parent, friends from home, an old teacher, anyone really! don’t give up, things might get tough, but you ARE strong and you WILL get through it
How to roommate

So since school is starting up again and some people are going to be dealing with roommates, I thought I’d give you some advice so you don’t make the same mistakes I did 20 roommates ago. 

1) DEFINE YOUR BOUNDARIES EARLY. Sit down with your roomies before the first week together is up and have The Talk. This conversation is a “What are everyone’s living habits and how can we best coexist” type talk. (When you do it early, before you know each other’s habits, no one feels attacked.) If one person loves staying up late but you have an 8:00 class, suggest quiet time after 11. If you’re messy but your roomie is a neat freak, allocate specific spaces that are allowed to be messy (like your room & bathroom) and places that need to be clean (like the kitchen). If you’re an introvert, let them know that you’ll be bowing out of some social gatherings and that it’s not because you hate them but because you need some quiet time. Be willing to tone down some habits to help your roommates maintain their mental health.

2) During your Boundaries talk, SET UP AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE PEOPLE FEEL FREE TO COMMUNICATE, CRITICIZE AND ASK FOR HELP. This will be extremely important down the line when you need to tell your roomie she’s taking too long in the shower.

3) LABEL YOUR FOOD. Or have a cupboard in the kitchen specifically for you. Otherwise things get real hangry real fast.

4) DO THINGS TOGETHER. It’s so easy to feel alone at college even if you live in an apartment full of people your age. Find something in common (even if that something in common is simply Pizza) and do it together a couple times a month. Roommates can be a great source of support and entertainment.

Good luck rooming, everyone! And don’t forget, if one form of communication doesn’t work, you can always try another. Roommates are not intimidating, they’re just people doing their best to brave school, like you and me.

  • Hermione: They're everywhere. All the time. Ginny's all perky and Luna does this thing where she's helpful and considerate. They share food, and they say things, and they move things, and they breathe. Ugh, they're like, happy.
  • Pansy: Kick them out.
  • Hermione: I can't kick them out, they just moved in. I asked them to move in.
  • Pansy: So what, you're just going to repress everything in some deep, dark, twisted place until one day you snap and you kill them?
  • Hermione: Yep.
  • Pansy: This. This is why we are friends.

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips for living with a roomate or starting college for the first time? I'm moving into college tomorrow and I'm freaking out a little.

hello, love! i do have some tips from experience.

so you’re gonna be rooming with someone for the first time and it’s a pretty daunting situation. here are some tips, mostly from my experience, that could possibly help you out: 

  • be respectful of each other
    • you’re going to share space
    • that doesn’t mean “invade” their space, and same goes for them
  • respect each others’ things 
    • if you need to use/eat/etc. something of theirs, ask first
    • if they say “no,” they mean no and that’s that
  • set ground rules 
    • you can be as general or specific as possible
    • but have everything laid out ASAP
    • be open when discussing minor things that irritate you the first day, or say something the first time your roommate does it 
    • actually, i’ll make that its own point
  • try not to room with your best friend
    • i have seen so. many. friendships. ruined. 
    • it’s a whole other monster living with the one you like hanging out with
    • there could be things they do around the house that get on your nerves
    • just avoid this if you can 
  • be vocal with each other
    • don’t sweep things under the rug
    • if they do something that doesn’t sit right with you, tell them the FIRST time they do it
    • if you don’t say anything, they will never ever know 
    • better to be clear about things when you can so that it doesn’t escalate into a bigger situation than it needs to be
  • cleaning is everyone’s responsibility
    • do not be a pushover, but do not leave the cleaning to everyone else
    • basic rule: clean up after yourself
    • “your mom is not here to clean after you” is something everyone should remember
    • the biggest issue here: DISHES
  • compromise, compromise, compromise 
    • this saves roommate situations
    • you don’t want your relations to go sour at any point in time
    • you’re going to be spending a lot of the year with these people, so don’t let it get awkward or build tension 
    • if you can’t study with music and they’re blaring drizzy drake, ask if they can use earphones; if they ask you to do something to make them more comfortable, oblige 
    • i might even make a separate post about different situations/things to say to compromise later
  • keep a dry erase board/chalkboard/notepad around in the open
    • quick notes to your roomie(s) 
    • this can get passive-aggressive, but that’s just how some people are 
    • important reminders about trash days/billing cycles/etc. 
  • you’re going to have to just deal with some things 
    • some roommates are just going to be rude/inconsiderate/unresponsive 
    • sometimes you might not even compromise with them if they’re too stubborn 
    • just hold it out for the lease term 
    • if you really need to, see next bullet point
  • talk to your resident advisor (ra) if there are things out of your control
    • they are there to help you and handle escalations 
    • if something is wrong/off about your roommate(s), let them know about it
    • if something is bothering you and you can’t talk to your roommate(s) about it, talk to them 
    • if your roommate(s) damage property, let them know immediately so you aren’t the one that gets charged for the damages 
  • regarding significant others/intimate visitors 
    • seriously, get everyone’s permission before letting someone stay the night with you
    • this is a huge deal, even if you don’t think it would be 
  • don’t judge them
    • this would only create a rift, even on the first day
    • try to understand them 
    • they would only feel alienated if you make fun of them/give them weird looks 
    • try to be friends
  • have conversations/hang out with them 
    • talk over meals, watch tv with them, go to the grocery store together, etc. 
    • get to know each other if you can 
    • invite them out to things 
    • if you can’t and they’re unapproachable, try just talking over text. they might just be shy

i’m sure there are so many more things i could add, but these are ones i deem pretty important. good luck!!

oh my GOD


I started doing Inktober again, I was drawing a locust because I keep having dreams about them for some reason, whatever, doesn’t matter. Point is I was drawing and I got up to use the bathroom for a few minutes and when I came back I FREAKING FOUND THIS:

WHAT THE HELL??? Like this isn’t even an accidental spill at all? It’s like someone just dragged their hand through the wet ink and smeared and splashed it all over.

I confronted my roommate about it and she acted like she didn’t know what happened. I just don’t understand, like, why would anyone do that??

Close up on the damage, again, clearly not an accidental spill. 

I’m so mad. Like, I know it was just a dumb little sketch, but you don’t mess with someone’s artwork??? That’s a really crappy thing to do. I don’t think I’m going to be speaking to my roommate for a while…at least not until she admits to it.

I feel like roommates make fun of Derek for the things we have come to love as canon.

Y/N: "Derek can I-”

Derek: *gif*

Peter: *Stiles in gif*

Y/N: *after a moment of staring at Peter on the floor* “Well, that was just stupid. Even I could tell you that. He’s an Alpha, ya know.”

Peter: “I am the Alpha. I’ve always been the Alpha!”

Isaac: *after a moment of staring at Peter on the floor* “Yeah, okay.” *back to Y/N* “So, do you admit defeat?”

Y/N: “Never!”
