out of them all

Shit my Mom says: Shadowhunters 2.08
  • Mom: He's so handsome.
  • Mom: I bet the magic would be stronger if he had his shirt off.
  • Mom: Why does he wear clothes?
  • Mom: He has a really nice voice.
  • Mom: I really enjoyed that episode; I can't wait for the next one.

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 ❤❤❤

One thing I noticed with Daria is her walking. She walks on a very loose leash which is fantastic, but every few steps will dash ahead. When I stop, she will immediately go back to my side and wait for me to continue. This in itself is nice - that she knows where she’s supposed to be and will fix herself without being cued is great. The problem is, this happens every three to ten steps depending on how focused on me she was. I believe that her raisers may have rewarded her for going back to position so much that they created a yo-yo puppy; one that will dash ahead and fix herself on purpose to get a reward, then do it again to get another.

To fix this yo-yo effect, I took her out on a walk with a six foot leash. I started walking very, very slowly. Daria had to pay close attention to me in order to stay in position, and because it was a new pacing she was instantly curious and toned in to me. I rewarded her every three steps or so with a primary (food) and secondary (verbal praise) reinforcer. After she had done that for a while, I moved to a slightly faster-than-normal pace and did the same thing. This pacing was so she didn’t think heeling was only for walking slow, but not a normal pace because I needed her to pay attention to me, and Daria is very tuned in to out of the ordinary things like pacing, so I didn’t have to try getting her attention constantly. If she got carried away and moved ahead, I would stop. When she moved back, I gave her secondary reinforcement - verbal and physical praise, but no food. This was so she knew coming back was good, but she knew the best way to get secondary reinforcement and the only way to get primary reinforcement was to stick with me. After she got that down, I went back to normal pacing with occasional changes in speed to keep it varying and new so she had to focus, rewarding all the way.

By the time our fifteen minute walk was over, she was going a fair distance without getting another primary reinforcer (secondary reinforcement was given through verbal “good girl Daria!” pretty frequently) and without dashing forward.

This technique was not taught to me by anybody; I came up with it just with my knowledge of operant conditioning and primary/secondary reinforcement. I feel like it’s important for all of us as raisers to have a good idea of how these concepts work so we can come up with ways to solve problems. I came up with a possible reason for the unwanted behavior (seeking rewards for going back). I knew I wanted to keep her coming back into position, but also wanted to teach her that there were easier ways to get more rewards. By applying my knowledge of psychology and my experience in teaching the dogs what I wanted, I figured out a way to communicate what I wanted from her.



Because I love this child and he needs more love, especially his relationship with Yuuri ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

While Phichit is an incredibly friendly lovable cinnamon roll, he won’t stand for anything threatening his best friend Yuuri, even if the threat happens to be someone Yuuri loves. Yuuri clearly adores the Victor he knows now (just as much as he idolized the distant figure in the past), but Phichit won’t forget how much Victor hurt Yuuri in the past, unintentional or not.

I headcanon that on top of being a skilled figure skater, Phichit is an academic genius who skipped grades and entered college in Detroit super early where he met Yuuri, which explains their long acquaintance despite the age difference. He is very, VERY protective of Yuuri. I’ll put up a more detailed headcanon post later (and if there’s interest, possibly prequel comic of pre-YOI anime Detroit college days).
