LOL, managers story. I was cutting paper and my manager told me to keep all my fingers. I asked to use the big paper cutter so it would go faster, and he straight up hesitated before telling me to watch my fingers. when I was done, he checked my hands for cuts. accident prone problems.

FLASHCARD ORGANISATION + DIY 1000 flashcards!!

Tips
1. Flashcards are not notes, don’t waste time writing everything on them.
2. Revise the most what you know least!
3. If you have 6 chapters, then separate flashcards in 6 piles.
4. If you don’t have time write questions only and maybe a couple of key words as reminders.
5. Quiz yourself and answer orally! Don’t let your actual exam be the first time you hear yourself talking about the subject.


DIY 1000 flashcards
1. Buy printer paper with 160grams or more (thicker paper is not see through, normal paper is usually only 80g)
2. Cut in 4 or 8 equal pieces (use a paper cutter for a cleaner cut)

1 paper printer pack (500 pages) with thicker paper is 10 € and you can make 1-2k flashcards! Have fun! :)

Minimalist Hogwarts Crest Bookmarks 

Other bookmarks:
Harry Potter House Bookmarks
Harry Potter Deathly Hallows
Fabric Bookmarks

These are only available in the UK due to posting. I do hope to eventually extend.

In order to pay for some things for my transition I need to raise some more funds. I can’t bring myself to do a gofundme account as I feel like it’s begging and I feel like I haven’t done anything to deserve the money, people have asked me if I have one so I just want to point that out. If when you buy a bookmark, you want to pay more etc for it, that is completely up to you, again. I have had people ask me if they can do that. All profits of these bookmarks will go straight into my transition fund.

These are the first lot I have completed, colour may vary. Shape and size may vary (mainly due to my weird paper cutter). These are all made by me.

These will be £2 including postage and packaging.

Paypal takes 10% from anything coming in and I would really love to keep the price as low as I can, so the money will transfer into my bank account, where I will keep account of everything that comes in for my transition (I will eventually get a separate account for it) but if there is any issue and you don’t feel comfortable with that we will work that out.  

Message me to buy a bookmark or if you have a question

u are a gem among gems 

i fucking hate feet, so if those legs are attached to feet, i want nothing to do with them. give me all the arms and hands

i am very very fond of a good black pen. u can’t go wrong. if i had access to any equipment though…i want one of these!!! my sister has one and my god it’s amaZING (it’s a cricut paper cutter thing and it can make like stickers, iron ons, cards, ANYTHING U WANT) ((i keep convincing myself not to order one on amazon impulsively but goddamn i want it) (okay im done) (if ur crafty and have disposable income though…check it out)

this gif is me rn honestly:

oh god i have so many quotes i like, but an all time favorite is: “the body is not an apology” (sonya renee) (my tattoo!!) “you never need to apologize for how you choose to survive” (clementine von radics) and “it was a mistake to keep this single knife in my heart so long, but it is my knife, and my heart, too.” (richard jackson) 

advice is hard! i know i have been given a ton of great advice over the yrs, whether i listen to it or not is unfortunately another thing entirely lol….but i think just the idea of realizing that ur emotions are not actually !! going to kill you, so if you sit with them and allow yourself to yes, feel entirely uncomfortable and shitty, u might want to die but you also might prevent yourself from doing some really dumb things in the mean time lol

anything @denmom tags as #colleenmydomesticpartner sounds pretty great to me in terms of dream living lol
