perservers

Captain America Headcanon: Steve loves vintage shops. Sometimes he feels like he belongs in them, perserved for so long and left on a shelf with a pretty little price tag. Certain places are full of things he’s forgotten about, small things like newspapers and silverware, dolls that seem much happier to have been here than he does. Most of the owners get to know him not as the Cap the Avenger, but as Steve. He feels even smaller amongst it all, like the boy in Brooklyn rolling his pants and sleeves, pinning the cloth back so it’d fit thinking one day he’d grow them. He brings back tinkets everytime he goes. Eventually the others start to catch on, and every once in a while someting new appears in his collection.

  • and finally when your eyes land on a person at the men’s section of the store a burst of saturation and color splashes in front of you

  • that happens so many time with you and jihoon but…the fourth time that it happens he stares back just three seconds longer than before
  • he blushes SO hard because of how daring of a move that was and starts fanning himself and beside him jisung is like??? it’s like 20 degrees in here what are you doing
  • and then the company manager says to you “usually we hire stylists who are married to prevent any kind of special relationship between them and the members…you’ll be an exception to our rule. but the second that we see something suspicious or that you’re violating that rule, then….well, you can guess what might happen.”

Steven Bomb 5: What is grief?

The differences in how grief is portrayed between Yellow and Blue Diamond in the new Steven Bomb is really interesting to me. They’re both such uniquely different, yet so familiar expressions of grief (albeit exaggarated for the purposes of the show).   

We quickly see that Blue DIamond is the one who is grieving the most conventionally (i guess), weeping, visiting Pink Diamond’s “grave”, or at least the place where she was killed. 

“Oh, Pink… I’m sorry,  I’m so sorry, I should have done more… Yellow says it’ll all be over soon, i wonder what you would think…”

It’s a very typical “having lost a family member” kind of grief. We see BD looking tired, grief stricken, hunched over and wheeping. We see her wishing above all to perserve their memory; perserving her creations by emloying the Quartz soldiers (even perserving a room of bubbled Rose Quartz-gems), . Collecting the things PD loved by bringing new human(s) to the zoo. 

Meanwhile, Yellow Diamond’s type of grief is recognizable as well. I’ve seen her catching a lot of flack for “not allowing BD to have feelings” - a too narrow view of her character in my opinion. (IMO, one of the best things this steven bomb did was taking the diamonds from scary bad guy “gods” to something much more human).

“Let’s make a plan of attack, start looking forward and stop looking back”

YD exhibits the type of grief where you just want to keep moving, keep busy in order not to look back. The song even alludes to this; “yes, of course we still love her, and we’re always thinking of her, but now there’s nothing we can do, so tell me what’s the use in feeling blue?”

Her grief materialises mainly in the wish to exact vengance upon the gems who caused PDs death, as well as the entire subgroup of quartz that she belonged to. If not for BD’s wish to perserve everything that belonged to PD (because ”they were hers”), she would have eradicated the entire cut of Rose Quartz in their possession. 

We even see it in the rehtoric (can i call it rethoric?)  she uses on BD, pushing her to see a picture bigger than her own grief, 

”Where’s their diamond when they need her, Blue? You’ve got to be a leader, Blue!”

It’s even shown in their composure; BD hunched over, head bowed, weeping, YD straight-backed, head rarely bowed (until that one, fantastic moment from the song where we see her composure break just a little). 

Steven Universe shows us something that is important to remember. Grief doesn’t always look like bowed heads and tears and laying flowers on graves. Sometimes it looks like squared shoulders and stubbornly not looking back because what lies behind you is too painful.

Steven Universe is great because it shows depth to even the most terrible of villains, and I just fucking love this show man. 

everything-shall-be-blue  asked:

Hi! I love all your posts, they are really useful, but I was wondering if you could do one about washing clothes. I'm moving out in a few weeks and the only thing I know is that you are supposed to separate you clothing according to colors... which colors? I have no idea. Help

Absolutely! Doing laundry on your own can be super stressful the first few times, but after you’ve gotten use to it, the routine becomes easy.

Washing Clothes 101

1. Don’t separate. In a perfect world, you would be color sorting your clothes to perserve the crispness of their colors. Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world and doing laundry is expensive! I don’t know a single college student who actually separates their whites from their colors, and I would advise you to follow our example and to wash everything together. If you have any pieces of clothing that are very fragile or delicate, set them aside in a bag. Wait until this bag is full, and do a separate wash for them on a delicate cycle.

2. Detergent. Buy whatever detergent is on sale at your local dollar store. Generally speaking, liquid detergent has more washes in it than pods do. 

3. Making detergent. I’ve read some interesting arguments on Tumblr about how making your own detergent is more worthwhile than purchasing product. I actually found a post that broke down the pricing of everything. Based off of how much time/money they spent to put everything together and how many loads they got out of it, my fancy smancy 3-in-1 Tide Pods were 3x as cost effective. I would avoid making your own detergent, unless you know what you’re doing and really want to.

4. Cold vs Hot wash. Cold washes get stains out better and are more eco-friendly than hot washes. Period the end.

5. Do I need fabric softener? Fabric softener is not necessary at all! Its main purpose is supposedly to perserve the softness of your clothing’s fabric during its time in the washing/drying machines. And maybe it does, but not in a very noticeable way. What it does do is smell strongly, a smell that I happen to really enjoy, but not everyone does. That said, fabric softener is super inexpensive, and a bottle of it will last you a year because you only use a small amount per wash. So if you like the smell of it, absolutely- go for it!

6. Do I need dryer sheets? Once again, no you do not! Dryer sheets help keep your clothing from sticking together and getting staticky, which is something you will notice occasionally as you start doing laundry. That said, they are very similar to fabric softener in the way that they mostly act as a scenting agent. Unlike softener, they aren’t super inexpensive, but are supposedly reusable. 

7. Card vs. Coins. Both of these are payment methods for washing machines. Some laundromats have both, most only offer one method. I personally prefer the card because it means that I don’t have to walk around with pockets full of quarters. But some laundromats will charge a small fee for the card and a larger fee if you loose it and need a new one. 

Identifying Washing Machine Types

Unfortunately, there isn’t really a “once size fits all” method for operating washing machines. There are so many different brands of washing machines, all of them varying in age and efficiency. The best I can do is to break the machines into two different categories (pictured above). 

The washing machine on the left is a newer model, the sort of machine that you will find in most laundromats. These machines are generally larger capacity, and are fully automatic. 

On the right, we have the older model. These machines require more legwork and caution then their counterparts because they can overflow easily.

The Method (Washing)

How to Wash Clothes Using an Older Model

1. If you have liquid detergent, start by pouring it into the bottom of the washer. Generally one cap is enough for one full washer. If you’re using pods, see step 4.

2. Pile smaller items towards the bottom of the washer to avoid clogging the machine. If you have to place larger items like blankets on the bottom, make sure that they are situated loosely. 

3. Be careful not to overload the machine! These machines are finicky and do not like to be overworked. Load clothes up to the top of the plastic tube that juts out from the center of the machine. 

4. If you are using pods, now is the time to add them. Two detergent pods per normal laundry load.

Please note that the following two steps are interchangeable. It does not matter if you set the cycle first, or wait until adding your money before setting the cycle. 

5. Set the machine to whatever type of cycle you have decided to use. For everyday clothes and blankets, use a normal, cold wash. Heavier washes will cost more money and take longer. Your average wash should only take a half hour.

6. Add your coins or use your payment card to start the machine. 

7. If you want to add softener, you will need to wait until the “add softener” light turns on. This is about midway through your wash. You’ll pour the softener directly into the machine. You’ll notice how the machine stops running when you open the lid. It’s crazy what technology can do nowadays!

8. Wait until the washing machine finishes its cycle, otherwise the bottom will be filled with water and your clothes will be drenched.

9. Start moving your laundry into dryers. 

How to Wash Clothes Using an Newer Model

1. Fill the machine with clothes, taking extra care to ensure that they aren’t packed tightly.

2. Locate and open the soap compartment located on either the side or top of the washer. Pour your detergent in the one marked “detergent”. If you are using pods, see step 5.

3. Add any softener you may wish to use into the compartment marked “fabric softener”.

4. Remember to close alls compartment, or else you might get hit with some water.

5. If you are using laundry pods, add them directly to the machine, dispersing them throughout the clothes. Two pods per normal laundry load.

Please note that the following two steps are interchangeable. It does not matter if you set the cycle first, or wait until adding your money before setting the cycle.

6. Set the machine to whatever type of cycle you have decided to use. For everyday clothes and blankets, use a normal, cold wash. Heavier washes will cost more money and take longer. Your average wash should only take a half hour.

7. Add your coins or use your payment card to start the machine. 

8. This type of laundry machine has a security lock that activates after you have started the wash cycle. Nobody, not even you, will be able to access what is inside this washer until after it completes its cycle. Feel free to leave the laundromat and get some chores done in the meantime!

9. You will hear a distinct “click” after the washing machine has finished working. Start moving your wash into dryers!

The Method (Drying)

Unlike washers, all drying machines are essentially the same. They will all be oriented like the newer washer model. 

1. Clean on the lint traps in the dryer before you even begin loading your clothing in. Find the lint trap and slide it open, use your hands to scrape the lint off the screen. Put this lint in the nearest receptacle. 

2. Place the lint trap back in- the dryer will not run until it is fully secured.

3. Start loading clothes! It’s impossible to gage how powerful or efficient a dryer is until you try it. I recommend dividing your clothes between two dryers and running them for 30-45 minutes. If you want a more involved but faster method, divide your clothes between as many dryers as possible, and run them for the shortest amount of time. 

4. Add your dryer sheets. The rule of thumb is two sheets per normal sized load.

5. Some machines have a one-size fits all cycle, which could be anywhere from 30-50 minutes. Other machines (most public machines) have a pricing system. My local laundromat has 15 minutes for 25¢, so I’ll put in a 75¢ for 45 minutes. 

6. Select the cycle you would like to use on your machine. I aways recommend the hottest cycle to save money.

7. The first few times you do a load of laundry, you’ll have to keep checking your clothes for doneness. Dryers do not lock, so you can open them at any time to check your clothes. So can the creepy guy in the laundromat- so it’s best to keep an eye on them.

8. After your clothes are done, load them back into your laundry bin.

9. Remember to discard any dryer sheets, little shriveled up pieces of paper, etc from the inside of the dryer. I also like to be polite and to clean the lint trap for the next person.

What it does do is smell strongly, a smell that I happen to really enjoy, but not everyone does. That said, fabric softener is super inexpensive, and a bottle of it will last you a year because you only use a small amount per wash. So if you like the smell of it, absolutely- go for it!

6. Do I need dryer sheets? Once again, no you do not! Dryer sheets help keep your clothing from sticking together and getting staticky, which is something you will notice occasionally as you start doing laundry. That said, they are very similar to fabric softener in the way that they mostly act as a scenting agent. Unlike softener, they aren’t super inexpensive, but are supposedly reusable.

7. Card vs. Coins. Both of these are payment methods for washing machines. Some laundromats have both, most only offer one method. I personally prefer the card because it means that I don’t have to walk around with pockets full of quarters. But some laundromats will charge a small fee for the card and a larger fee if you loose it and need a new one.

Identifying Washing Machine Types

Unfortunately, there isn’t really a “once size fits all” method for operating washing machines. There are so many different brands of washing machines, all of them varying in age and efficiency. The best I can do is to break the machines into two different categories (pictured above).

The washing machine on the left is a newer model, the sort of machine that you will find in most laundromats. These machines are generally larger capacity, and are fully automatic.

On the right, we have the older model. These machines require more legwork and caution then their counterparts because they can overflow easily.

The Method (Washing)

How to Wash Clothes Using an Older Model

1. If you have liquid detergent, start by pouring it into the bottom of the washer. Generally one cap is enough for one full washer. If you’re using pods, see step 4.

2. Pile smaller items towards the bottom of the washer to avoid clogging the machine. If you have to place larger items like blankets on the bottom, make sure that they are situated loosely.

3. Be careful not to overload the machine! These machines are finicky and do not like to be overworked. Load clothes up to the top of the plastic tube that juts out from the center of the machine.

4. If you are using pods, now is the time to add them. Two detergent pods per normal laundry load.

Please note that the following two steps are interchangeable. It does not matter if you set the cycle first, or wait until adding your money before setting the cycle.

5. Set the machine to whatever type of cycle you have decided to use. For everyday clothes and blankets, use a normal, cold wash. Heavier washes will cost more money and take longer. Your average wash should only take a half hour.

6. Add your coins or use your payment card to start the machine.

7. If you want to add softener, you will need to wait until the “add softener” light turns on. This is about midway through your wash. You’ll pour the softener directly into the machine. You’ll notice how the machine stops running when you open the lid. It’s crazy what technology can do nowadays!

8. Wait until the washing machine finishes its cycle, otherwise the bottom will be filled with water and your clothes will be drenched.

9. Start moving your laundry into dryers.

How to Wash Clothes Using an Newer Model

1. Fill the machine with clothes, taking extra care to ensure that they aren’t packed tightly.

2. Locate and open the soap compartment located on either the side or top of the washer. Pour your detergent in the one marked “detergent”. If you are using pods, see step 5.

3. Add any softener you may wish to use into the compartment marked “fabric softener”.

4. Remember to close alls compartment, or else you might get hit with some water.

5. If you are using laundry pods, add them directly to the machine, dispersing them throughout the clothes. Two pods per normal laundry load.

Please note that the following two steps are interchangeable. It does not matter if you set the cycle first, or wait until adding your money before setting the cycle.

6. Set the machine to whatever type of cycle you have decided to use. For everyday clothes and blankets, use a normal, cold wash. Heavier washes will cost more money and take longer. Your average wash should only take a half hour.

7. Add your coins or use your payment card to start the machine.

8. This type of laundry machine has a security lock that activates after you have started the wash cycle. Nobody, not even you, will be able to access what is inside this washer until after it completes its cycle. Feel free to leave the laundromat and get some chores done in the meantime!

9. You will hear a distinct “click” after the washing machine has finished working. Start moving your wash into dryers!

The Method (Drying)

Unlike washers, all drying machines are essentially the same. They will all be oriented like the newer washer model.

1. Clean on the lint traps in the dryer before you even begin loading your clothing in. Find the lint trap and slide it open, use your hands to scrape the lint off the screen. Put this lint in the nearest receptacle.

2. Place the lint trap back in- the dryer will not run until it is fully secured.

3. Start loading clothes! It’s impossible to gage how powerful or efficient a dryer is until you try it. I recommend dividing your clothes between two dryers and running them for 30-45 minutes. If you want a more involved but faster method, divide your clothes between as many dryers as possible, and run them for the shortest amount of time.

4. Add your dryer sheets. The rule of thumb is two sheets per normal sized load.

5. Some machines have a one-size fits all cycle, which could be anywhere from 30-50 minutes. Other machines (most public machines) have a pricing system. My local laundromat has 15 minutes for 25¢, so I’ll put in a 75¢ for 45 minutes.

6. Select the cycle you would like to use on your machine. I aways recommend the hottest cycle to save money.

7. The first few times you do a load of laundry, you’ll have to keep checking your clothes for doneness. Dryers do not lock, so you can open them at any time to check your clothes. So can the creepy guy in the laundromat- so it’s best to keep an eye on them.

8. After your clothes are done, load them back into your laundry bin.

9. Remember to discard any dryer sheets, little shriveled up pieces of paper, etc from the inside of the dryer. I also like to be polite and to clean the lint trap for the next person.

        Roman sat in the living room when I walked in. The television sat glaring at him with a true crime documentary playing in front of him and the volume on mute. He didn’t look up but the small flinch his body made told me that he heard me walk in.

           “Hey Roman! You feeling alright?”

           “Yeah.” His voice was a whisper. He finally turned to look at me, before casually saying, “I go back on the road tomorrow.”

           I dropped my coat on the dining room and made my way to the couch where he sat. Roman sighed and I wrapped my hands around his waist, placing a gentle kiss on his stubbly cheek.

Exo when you do a sexy dance

Baekhyun
You were perfectly aware that Baekhyun was sat up to the breakfast bar, eating a snack while you pottered around, doing some baking. You would always dance while baking and after a while, he stopped commenting but usually, he was out of the room before your playlist turned into sexually suggestive songs, your dancing matching the theme.

“Oh!” He’d gasp looking up to see your hips moving. You’d stop your usual movements to dance in a less sexual manner. “No no no, don’t stop, I really like it! Please, never stop.”

Actual ball of fluff, probably giggles when you offer to dance for him but doesn’t say no. At first, he doesn’t know what to do, he kind of felt like he shouldn’t be watching you dance so provocatively but he managed to get it into his head eventually that you had offered and that after all, you two were dating so it was fine. The second the shyness left, his eyes wouldn’t leave your body, his tongue licking his lips and you noticed. I mean obviously you did, there was no way he could hide the bulge forming in his jeans. You’d smirk and walk over to stand directly in front of him, hands on your hips.
“Oh baby, I think we need to do something about that.” He’d blush, looking down at where your gaze rested before looking up and nodding hastily in agreement.

Now, this guy, he’d no doubt have tricked you into it somehow and before you knew it, he was sat on the end of your bed, watching your body move seductively to the music. but, he had never expected he’d get so turned on by your movements so the second he realised that all of his blood was rushing to his crotch, he’d clear his throat and lean forward onto his knees, trying to be subtle about hiding the evidence from you as he spoke.
“Okay, you proved me wrong, you can go back to your show now.” He’d stated, barely looking up at you properly. instantly, you caught on and smirked, sauntering over to him. His eyes followed, gulping hard when you pushed him onto his back.

“No need to be shy, baby, seeing you so turned on gets me turned on too.”

Kai
It all started at the dance studio. You turned up to bring him lunch knowing how hard he had been working lately with the comeback quickly approaching. He didn’t want you to leave after you both ate together so you stuck around and allowed him to teach you some of the new dance. Kai was too absorbed in his pride of you to even realise just how smoothly you were moving and grinding your hips against him until your arse rubbed against him in just the right way. He’d grow wide-eyed and stiffen. He’d think he was being subtle with the way he took a step back but the warmth of his body grew distant so you backed up, holding his arms around your waist and you purposely rolled your hips back against his.

“It’s okay, Kai, I want to feel your body against mine, all of your body.”

Kyungsoo (D.O)
He’d be cooking dinner, an extravagant meal because you both had been working hard and he figured you could both do with a good meal. Whereas, you wanted to put something else in your mouth spend time with him but his attention was on cooking. So, you’d decide to distract him. You’d go into your room and switch into the new lingerie you bought as a gift to yourself for dealing with so much shit at work lately. You’d find a ‘sexy times’ playlist online and play it on your laptop that you placed on the kitchen table. He’d still be absorbed in cooking. You’d huff and climb up onto the table to start to dance. Out of the corner of his eye, he’d see feet on the table so he’d look up and almost fall back in shock.

“J-jagi!” He’d exclaim. “W-what-”

“Now you can’t ignore me.” You’d smirk, still moving to the slow, sensual beat. He’d gulp, his eyes roaming your scarcely dressed body. “Would you like me to stop?” He’d lick his lips and shake his head, reaching out blindly to grope the buttons to turn the oven off, glad he hadn’t actually started to cook. He’d shuffle around the counter to get a better view and stand there open mouthed, glossy eyed until you were finished, not wanting to miss a single second. Then he’d take you to the bedroom, or maybe on that table.

When he saw you dancing with your friends across the room at your friend’s party, his first instinct was to rush over and put his arms around you, show everyone you were his. But, he just had to stand back and watch your body move to the music in that way that always made his pants a little too tight. Only when his thoughts were consumed by all the things he wanted to do to you would he join you, holding your body tight to his and moving with you. A smirk would lift your lips, feeling his arousal against your body and you’d turn to look at him, seeing the lust in his eyes.
“Maybe we should go home?” You’d suggest and his smirk would mirror yours. He wouldn’t even give you time to say goodbye to your friends, just grab your hand and pull you out to his car. Maybe he manages to control himself until you make it all the way home but maybe, just maybe, he pulls over somewhere private and pulls you into the back seat with him.

Suho
The pair of you had gone out to a club to celebrate a friend’s promotion. There was a lot of you there but Suho didn’t leave your side until he went to use the restroom. When he returned, you were dancing and for the life of him, he couldn’t tear his eyes away from you. He’d bought you a pair of new heels to match the dress you bought for the occasion and he loved how your legs looked in them.
He’d return to your side and you’d smile at him. Instantly, you’d notice the darkness consuming his eyes and your stomach would flip excitedly.
“You are so beautiful, jagi.” He’s breath, tucking your hair behind your ears. “And those heels make your legs look so good.”

“They do.” You’d look down at your legs and instinctively, so would he, his tongue wetting his lips. “I didn’t thank you properly for them.”

“You-”

“Maybe we should go home so I can.” He’d look up at you to see you smirking. “And maybe I should keep them on while I do.”

Xiumin
You had been dancing around as you cleaned your apartment, ready for when Xiumin arrived for your weekly movie night. He wasn’t due for another hour and was never usually early, having a bunch of stuff to do for work, but on this day he was. He’d let himself in but not call out. You had the music too loud anyway. He’d kick off his shoes, leaving them neatly next to yours before walking further in, finding you dusting the TV, moving and swaying your hips. For a few minutes, he’d only watch you, imagining how it’d feel to have you moving against him like that. He’d not even notice you had finally turned and spotted him, almost screaming int eh process but the way he was staring at you cut you off quickly. You’d stare back at him, wondering when he’d snap out of his fantasies but apparently, he was content to stay in them. You’d walk over to him to drag him over to the sofa. You’d push him down and continue to dance. His cheeks would redden slightly, embarrassed at how out of it you caught him but he’d quickly pull you down onto his lap.
“Don’t stop moving, please jagi.” He’d beg breathlessly and there’s no way you could say no to that.

Yixing (Lay)
Now Yixing could go one of two ways, depending on his mood.
The first option, he’d just watch, smiling and encouraging you to dance. nothing but pure joy and love in him over the fact you were dancing for him. It’d be entirely innocent, even with the sexual music and movements because he’d see it as just a dance, not a seduction technique. Too innocent and pure mood, basically so if you wanted more, you’d have to be pretty blunt with him.

The second and best would be that the second he heard the music start, he’d lean back to look at you, his eyes already dark and piercing your body causing shivers to run down your spine. He’d still say encouraging words but not ones with innocent meanings.
“You move your hips so good, baby. Hm, don’t stop moving.” He’d bite his lip, his eyes raking your body. “Come over and sit on my lap, show me how good you can move against me.” You’d obviously comply who wouldn’t and he’d lace his fingers together behind his head, leaning back even further to watch your body move. He’d have patience, letting you work against him until you were almost too tired to continue, only then would he take a firm hold of your hips and roll his hips against yours in return.

My laptop really didn’t want that second half of Yixing’s one. When I was writing it, I pressed something(still no idea what) and it went blank and bearing in mind I write these in a document so that was ALL of my exo writing gone suddenly but luckily, it somehow had saved itself so was there when i opened the document again otherwise I legit would’ve cried and never touched the request again.And then when I was looking for the second Yixing gif, my laptop kept freezing and the gifs wouldn’t load and i almost gave up and used one i didn’t really like but, i perserved for my bby Yixing

Thank you anon for the request! 

My requests are open so that’s Exo, BTS and GOT7 but please be patient and let Mimi work on the stuff she’s got lined up so only request those three groups until she says otherwise rn

Also, I’m thinking of starting to take Day6 requests once I’ve finished the ones I’ve got lined up but I’m still not too familiar with them so if people would message me to inform me on their personalities and stuff, that’s be pretty gosh darn sweet.

Iron Fist Body Shaming

Of all the criticisms levelled at Finn Jones, the remarks about his physical appearance being ‘scrawny’ are to my mind the most needless and unfounded. It’s actually refreshing to see a Marvel superhero who isn’t built like a shed, instead we’ve been offered a broader range of male physicality for the first time. Finn’s muscular profile is slim, remarkably so in the context of Marvel actors, ectomorphic and to my mind, demonstrates an intense training regime pursued by someone who appears to struggle to gain weight but perservered to produce an admirable result. We should be applauding him for not retreating from displaying a physicality that was always going to be dwarfed by the likes of Chris Hemsworth and Hugh Jackman. For a naturally skinny guy who takes as much interest in Marvel as fitness, Finn Jones has become my personal fitness inspiration irrespective of vacuous remarks on Youtube and Twitter.

It is scary windy where I live right now and my power just went out. What do I do?

Deep breaths!

Power Out

  1. Turn the brightness down on your phone to perserve battery power. Close out of all the apps you are not using immediately. Activate low battery mode. 
  2. Get yourself a flashlight that works. Have it on sparsely, use it only when you have to.
  3. Light some candles. Leave these on always.
  4. Make sure that all the windows are closed tightly.
  5. Don’t flush your toilet unless absolutely necessary. Your water is turned off, but you probably have at least one good flush left in that toilet.
  6. Don’t open your fridge. Opening your fridge will let the cold air out and your food will start to spoil faster. If it’s cold outside where you live (and the blackout persists), you can move some of your perishable like milk and yogurt outside to keep it cold.
  7. Find your First Aid Kit and keep it near.
  8. Play some card games and board games with your loved ones or friends. Camp out together in your living room using sleeping bags.
  9. Give your furry friends extra love and care. Some animals get very nervous during power outs! 
  10. Remember that if your phone runs out of batteries, you can turn your car on and use your car charger to charge you phone. But ONLY if it’s safe to be outside.
  11. Try to stay away from windows if at all possible. I haven’t heard of any major storms coming through right now (in America at least), so hopefully this will pass soon.

Good luck! Close out of Tumblr babe. Perserve your battery!
