Can you do scenarios of living together with Kenma, Kuroo, Hinata, Nishinoya, Oikawa, Iwaizumi and Sugawara? Your blog is lovely as always ❤

Hey love! I kind of took this as living as roommates, not lovers. I hope you’re ok with that!


Kenma

- The kid never leaves his bedroom. Ever. If you don’t bother him, chances are he’ll dwell in the dark of his bedroom all day, only leaving for bathroom breaks or the occasional snack. He’d need excessive amounts of force to leave his bed in the morning, so be prepared to slam pots and pans in the morning if you plan on living with him.

- Despite the fact that he’s always MIA, he’s actually a pretty decent person to live with. He always cleans up after himself, keeps his necessities in the bathroom in order and helps with the cooking and cleaning. The only problem is, he’ll eat your food and have no shame admitting it. (You;d have to start keeping your cookie stash under your bed…)

- Unless he’s at Bokuto’s, Kuroo is almost always over at your place. You don’t mind much, he isn’t rude and is pretty respectful, but he’s over so much he might as well start paying for rent, too.


Kuroo

- He’s very respectful. He minds his own business for the most part and doesn’t bring home friends unless you’re comfortable with them. Although, he has a bad habit of invading your privacy sometimes. When he’s bored, or lonely, or both, he’ll sneak into your bed in the middle of the night and sleep next you you. This happens at least twice a week.

- He watches these atrocious nature documentaries every night. They’re tedious, and play at 8:00 PM every night on PBS. At this point, you’re 100% sure they’re only made to help insomniacs fall asleep. Sometimes, you’ll try to convince him to watch a more interesting documentary, a cute one about penguins or coral reefs on National Geographic. Sadly, he’ll always stick to the horrific ones, ones about the velocity of waterfalls and the properties of matter. He’s honestly an old man, sometimes.

- He wanted to buy a cat, but since you and the landlord were both against that, he got a hermit crab instead. It’s a troublemaker, that thing, and somehow, it always manages to escape it’s terrarium at night. In the morning, you’ve not only found it on the kitchen table across the room, but in the bathtub, behind the fridge, and in between couch cushions as well. Kuroo thinks it’s hysterical, but you get a little heart attack every time you see it’s left its cage.


Hinata

- He’s such a joy. He’s always happy and if you’re having a bad day, he’s always more than willing to cheer you up. Although, he’s kind of messy. Actually, he’s very messy. He knows to wash his dishes and pick up after himself in the kitchen and living room, but his bedroom is an absolutely atrocious. You made a deal that every time you tidy up his room for him, he has to pay extra on that month’s rent. He always pays extra.

- Sometimes Kageyama comes over, and it’s like a dream come true. Somehow, he always makes Hinata shape up and do his own thing for once. On more than one occasion, you’ve considered asking him to move in with you, too.

- He almost burnt the whole place down, once. He tried making Pillsbury cinnamon rolls by putting them in the microwave. With the container still on. Of course, you were there to stop him before the microwave could do any damage, but after that day he wasn’t allowed to cook anything anymore.


Nishinoya

- Nine times out of ten, if Nishinoya is home, Tanaka is over. It’s not like you dislike Tanaka or anything, he’s great. It’s just that when he’s with Nishinoya, they’re so loud, and for no apparent reason, either. They’ll blast Nicki Minaj from his bedroom, and do nothing but scream for hours straight. You’re surprised you haven’t gotten any neighbor complaints yet…

- He knows he can be obnoxious, but he makes up for it. Sometimes, he’ll buy a bunch of snacks, snacks that your mother would probably get mad at you for eating, and binge watch an entire tv show with you. Other times, he’ll take you out to a movie you want to go see, or a museum you’ve been planning on going to. He’s like a boyfriend, but without the commitment.

- Although he’s kind of like a boyfriend, he’s a bit of a “Big Brother”, too. God forbid you ever bring home a date, Nishinoya will be on top of him in seconds, asking for his name, birthday, occupation, and social status. Somedays he’ll be all buddy buddy with you ruffling your hair and calling you “kiddo”. The next he’s like, “what’s up loser?” and making fun of you if you mess up. It’s really just his way of showing platonic affection.


Oikawa

- No matter what, he’s always criticizing your outfits. Every morning you’re either met with a “Hey! You look so good today!” or a “Are you really leaving the house looking like that?” On more than one occasion, Oikawa has actually gone out of his way to put together an entire outfit for you.

- He occupies so much time in the bathroom, it’s actually annoying. You both will be in a rush trying to get to work in the morning, and he’ll take an actual hour primping his hair. On more than one occasion, you have peed while he was doing his hair because he was taking up so much precious time.

- It’s nice that he’s very clean, but it’s bad that he’s borderline OCD. Sometimes he actually drives himself crazy making everything ‘perfect’, and you have to be there to reassure that yes, everything is perfect and yes, he did a wonderful job.


Iwaizumi

- Living with this one means getting used to being woken up by a blender every morning. Iwaizumi is the kind of guy who drinks raw egg and protein powder shakes for breakfast every morning, and it’s kind of repulsive watching him do so. Although, every so often he’ll make you a smoothie before hand, just to make up for the noise he’s making.

- He leaves his dirty clothes everywhere. By everywhere, I mean everywhere. Sometimes he’ll just leave a sweatshirt in the middle of the kitchen and you have no idea how it even got there, and why he was even compelled to drop it there. After a while, you threatened him that you’d throw every stray piece of clothing out the window if he didn’t get it washed or put it away in an hour.

- As a roommate he respects your privacy and personal space, but as a best friend, he’s a bit of an asshole. He’ll take up the only bathroom in your place for hours, and you have to nearly break down the door because, “Hajime, nobody takes two hour shits. What the fuck are you doing in there?”


Sugawara

- He’s honestly a bit annoying to live with sometimes. He’s a great guy, really. It’s just that he has a really bad habit of babying you sometimes. He truly is like a mother, and sometimes he forgets that he actually isn’t one. He’ll sometimes come in and check if you’re sleeping or not, and make you go to bed at a certain time. Others, he’ll literally set a curfew for you, saying that you need to be home at a certain time for absolutely no reason. You constantly have to remind him, “Koushi, I’m a fully capable adult. You aren’t my mother.”

- Despite him being a bit of a doting mother, he’s actually a great guy to live with, once you get used to him. He’s fantastic at reading people, and even if you’re faking a good mood, he can see right through that facade, He’ll go out of his way to make your day a little bit better, whether it be by making your favorite food, putting on a show you like, or buying you something cute, Sugawara’s always coming in on a clutch.
- He makes you feel bad sometimes, because he’s actually kind of perfect. Not only does he do his own chores, but he goes out of his way to do yours sometimes too. You want to tell him you’re fully capable of doing them yourself, but do you really think that would stop Sugawara Koushi?

alright friends! most of us are returning to school in the next month or so (and those of us in the co 2017 are entering the dark abyss of college application season) so i thought i’d make a post on how to make returning to school after two months of vegetating on your laptop!!! disclaimer: this really only applies to middle/high school bc i know nothing about college.

in the month before school starts

  • make a list of all of the school supplies you need! @prettylittlestudies​ has a great masterpost here and @hermionegoals​ has one here once you have a list of everything that you need, go through what you already have and check things off. make a finalized list of everything you still need to get, and figure out where you can get it cheapest. walmart, target, and staples are my go-tos for school supplies. you can usually get 99-cent notebooks etc, which is great when you’re on a budget!!!
  • start trying to fix your sleeping schedule. you don’t have to wake up at six every morning but try and be awake by eight or nine starting the month before you have to go back to school, then the week before, try and start waking up when you would have to for school. nothing sucks worse than getting three hours of sleep the night before the first day. if you’re having trouble going to sleep earlier, try setting an alarm for eight o clock no matter what time you go to bed. it sucks during the day but it should help you reset your sleep sched
  • make the best of what’s left of your summer! take days to relax and do nothing! studyblr culture absolutely has this illusion that you have to productive every second of every day which is??? untrue??? days off are necessary to avoid burnout y’all, you’re just a person not a robot, you can’t be constantly productive. hang out with friends, with family, take time for yourself to just chill and recover.

the day/night before school starts

  • do something with your friends. just something small. go and get ice cream together, grab lunch, go for a walk together. hang out in barnes and noble (my personal fave.) 
  • make yourself something good for dinner!!! make your favorite food. have dessert. treat yourself. 
  • get everything together the night before YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. get your backpack organized. pick out your clothes for the next morning. make sure you have something you really like for breakfast (a package of pillsbury cinnamon rolls are my go to) it will make the first day so much easier and more relaxed
  • go to bed early duh???? 

when school actually starts

  • make sure to write everything down. that might seem obvious, but DO IT. it’s so so so helpful. set reminders in your phone. 
  • do everything you need to do at the first opportunity after it’s assigned. you’ll feel so so so much better knowing that it’s out of the way - and that way if you want to, you can make plans later on, bc you already did what you need to do
  • make sure to do some relaxing the weekend after school starts
  • y’all remember that it’s completely okay to feel a little burnt out as the school year starts, you just went from doing nothing to doing a whole lot
  • make a list of concepts that you’re foggy on that you need to review to make your classes this year earlier, especially in math classes and in some science classes!

Merry meet!! Here’s some before and after shots of our Mabon feast! We had Cinnamon Apple Monkey Bread and some homebrewed rauchbier (smoked beer). 🍁
____________________________
Monkey Bread Recipe:
2 cans of pillsbury grands cinnamon rolls
2 granny smith apples
¼ cup butter
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup sugar
bunt pan

Preheat oven to 350F. Skin and cut up your apples into small chunks, mix them with the cinnamon and sugar until coated. Cut your cinnamon rolls into four parts and roll them into balls. Coat your bunt pan with cooking spray, then toss in the sugar/cinnamon coated apple bits and your rolled cinnamon bun bits. I layered them so it would be a more homogenous mixture, but that’s up to you. Melt your butter and pour it over everything in the bunt pan. Stick it in the oven for about 40 mins or until golden brown. When done, melt the icing that comes in the cinnamon roll cans over the whole thing. Enjoy 🍎
____________________________
Rauchbier (or any beer) takes some skill with brewing in order to make. If you’re curious about the brewing process, dm me and I’ll point you in the right direction. I’m fortunate that my fiance is a skilled homebrewer so I’ve learned a lot from him and I get a lot of free tasty beer.
Rauchbier is a smoked lager, made by smoking the malt before sparging it (others will add essence of smoke flavor which in my opinion is cheating, but hey to each her own). My fiance home-smoked his malt then had it milled nearby before brewing with it. It tastes like a campfire, but some other ones sort of taste like bacon. I would highly recommend you try it if you can find it. 🔥
___________________________

We performed our Mabon ritual, performed a spell for releasing negative energies, then feasted on our bread and beer before dancing under the new moon. We ended the night with more feasting while watching the feminist anthem that is Wonder Woman. Overall, an excellent Sabbat. Hope your night went as well as mine!
Merry part, and merry meet again! 🌾
