posts with a lot of notes

hey, i was going through my answered asks and i came across an ask where somebody asked if being rejected repeatedly counted as a trauma. i answered yes, because i was assuming they meant rejected as in neglected by their parents or bullying, however it has now come to my attention, looking back at the ask, that i should have specified that being rejected romantically is not trauma. 

i was going through the notes of this ask and a lot of people were upset by it, and rightfully so. 

i should have put more time and care into answering that ask, and i apologise to the people i hurt due to my carelessness. it was wrong of me to not elaborate, and i made a lot of trauma survivors feel invalid and angry. 

i am very deeply sorry to those who were angered by or upset by my reaction to this ask. i should have been more careful with how i answered it, and this is a lesson i will keep in mind for the future when answering questions that are unclear.

Soul and Makka with Soul allergic?

I made a post about how some people are allergic to Oolong tea of which the main symptom is puking and I actually received a lot of asks for it so I decided to do a few of them. This is the third prompt I received and the last one I will be doing.

Hope you enjoy!

(Author’s note: I have a running theme that Soul has a condition called FPIES which is an allergy to dairy that causes severe vomiting)

.

Maka thought that Soul had been enjoying the picnic as much as she had been. He hadn’t been acting unusual and he was just as talkative as always, so nobody saw it coming.

They had been sitting at a picnic table with a table full of food, each of their friends had brought one thing to share.

It was even better than average picnic food and they had refreshing beverages too.

They were even lucky enough to have good weather, everything was going well until suddenly Maka turned to look at Soul when she heard a strange noise.

She looked and saw him turned around, leaning over the side of the bench with a string of vomit stuck to his lip.

“Soul…? Are you okay?” She asked, too shocked to understand what had just happened.

“I don’t know.” He said honestly, before he felt a rush of liquids traveling up his esophagus and covered his mouth with his hand.

He jumped out from the picnic table and fell to his knees in the grass, vomiting into it.

“Soul!” Maka ran by his side, she saw that he was breathing heavily and looked to her friends for help.

“There’s a drinking fountain just there.” Death the Kid jumped up and helped walk Soul over there.

Soul shrugged them off when they got there, claiming he was fine but Maka refused to leave, and Soul gave in.

He had a drink and rinsed his mouth out, wiping his lips off with his hand. “Can we go home?” He scratched his head.

“Of course!” Maka ran to get their bags and apologized to everyone.

“Are you feeling okay now?” She asked with a wary voice.

“Yeah yeah.” Soul said unconvincingly. “Not sure what came over me.”

They walked in silence for some time, when Maka noticed she had passed Soul. She turned back and saw he had stopped and was bent forward, leaning his hands on his knees.

“I feel kind of off.” He admitted.

“Is it your stomach?” Maka put a hand on his shoulder.

“Yeah.” Soul stifled a burp into his fist and swallowed compulsively. Suddenly, he pushed Maka away and she nearly toppled backwards.

“Hey! What-” at first she was angry, but her expression changed as she saw Soul puking onto the sidewalk. “Oh god, Soul.”

When he stopped he was left panting, sweat dripping off of his forehead onto the sidewalk.

“Come on Soul, let’s get you home.”

.

They arrived home and Soul darted straight to the bathroom and slammed the door. A moment later, Maka could hear him being copiously sick.

She banged on the door. “Soul! I’m coming in.”

“Leave me alone.” He said angrily.

Maka blatantly ignored him and he rolled his eyes when she came in.

She fished around in the cabinet for a thermometer and shoved it in his mouth without his consent.

“You don’t have a fever.” Maka was confused. “Did you eat something that upset your stomach?”

“I stayed away from all dairy.” Soul ensured her.

He belched and hung his head back over the toilet miserably. Maka sat beside him and rubbed his back.

“What was you doing that for?” He glared at her, sounding annoyed.

“I just want to help.”

“You can help me by getting out.” Soul said crossly. Then he wrapped his arms around his stomach, wincing. A wet sound came from his throat and more liquids spilled out of him. He spat in disgust and wiped off his mouth with toilet paper.

“I wish you wouldn’t fuss over me.” He turned away from Maka.

She sighed. “You’re just grumpy because you’re sick.”

Soul lurched forward and this time heaved forcefully into the bowl, expelling his stomach contents in a thick stream. He sniffed and flushed the toilet. “I wonder what really did make me sick.”

Maka thought for a moment. “Was there anything there you hadn’t had before? Maybe you’re allergic.”

“I think one food allergy is enough thank you.” Soul said bitterly. “Eh- oh, wait. What kind of tea was it that Death the Kid brought? I don’t think I’ve tasted anything like it before.”

Maka thought. “Oolong- I think?”

“What’s that?”

“You’ve never had Oolong tea?” Maka was surprised. “Maybe you had some kind of reaction to it…”

Soul pitched over the bowl and was noisily sick again. He spat in disgust. “Well, I’m not taking any chances. I’m never having that again.”

Semi-long Post Time: Celebration 2017

Alright folks.

These last six days have been a whirlwind. I have had an entire day to sit and think about what I experienced and what I want to say about it. I have a lot of thoughts, but I’ll keep it as brief as I can.

I won’t go through each day, as @darlingnisi has done a fantastic job of note-taking and recapping each day we were there. Read them!

I just want to talk about takeaways. There were many, but the one that stuck with me most was legacy. What you leave behind once you’re no longer here. How you show up in the world to others and what your impact on their lives can mean for them. What God can do through you when you walk FULLY in your purpose. 

Legacy is something I think about often anyway. Not the whole “how many people will show an outpouring of love” aspect so much. But the “how am I showing up in the world?” aspect. How am I impacting the people around me? Not just physically but through my presence anywhere - on or offline. So after seeing and hearing about the way he gave himself up totally to his calling, how he mastered EVERY aspect of it and was able to change the world, I was just left so inspired. Figure out my purpose, walk fully in that, and have faith that God will use me as a vessel to bring more love and light into this world. The same way that Prince did. But in a way and on a scale that is unique to me. And I believe that for everyone. “We all got a space to fill.”  Again, these are things I already believed in as Christian anyway, but it was just very much underscored and highlighted through the Celebration. Serve the world through your God-given talents in whatever capacity. Pour into others. Point others to love. Continue to work towards becoming a better version of you and inspire others to do the same.

The Celebration left us with the charge to spread Prince’s legacy. But not just as a musician, not just as a creative mind, but as a professional, as a mentor, as just a human being. He impacted this world on so many levels just by existing and allowing himself to be a vessel. His entire life, the good and the bad, is inspiring and is an amazing testimony with a lifetime of lessons all of us can learn from. 

Basically ya’ll, I was left so FULL after this celebration. I will be back as often as financially possible. I really hope more folks can experience it next year because it is so worth it.

I said it in October and I’ll say it again, until we meet again MPLS. Peace & be wild.

What's a good way to speed up my note taking process? I'm in high school and I have lots of classes that I'm determined to pass but my slow note taking abilities really limit this... I'm behind on my notes and it makes me feel like I'm slacking honestly

the notes that I take in class are always way different than the “pretty notes” found all over studyblrs; I don’t think anybody has time for that in class tbh!

What I usually do is abbreviate and make sure I write down key points; bullet points, never complete sentences. Your notes should be quick but legible and still organized so you can actually read them! A lot of my teachers also put their notes/slide shows online which allows me and other students to catch up if we weren’t able to finish the notes in class. My math teacher even makes videos of himself talking through and writing out our lessons and posts them online daily, which is super helpful! If your teachers don’t do any of that, you can always ask a classmate if you can borrow their notes or if you can take a photo of their notes to copy down later.

hey today has been pretty rough could someone please rb this w a pic of john boyega smiling

I will forever want justice for every female character who was demonized by fandom because their canon ties to a male character was deemed a threat to a popular slash pairing. 

Literally apart from that weird and unnecessary fat-shaming comment at the start of the episode I am so impressed? I feel like this is the Doctor Who I used to love. Bill already feels like a real person with real emotions and a backstory that we’re going to explore. We have the companion’s POV instead of the Doctor’s POV, which seems to work way better. Bill is ALREADY calling the Doctor out and making him a better person with the added bonus that although she respects him, she’s not fawning over him like he’s a god or something and there’s no danger of him becoming her romantic fixation and making everything she does about him. Also this is probably a small thing but Bill dresses like a normal young person and looks like a normal young person. She’s really relatable (a lot like Rose was back in the day) and I think that’s going to allow a lot of people to get on board with this show. Oh, and one last note, the dynamic between Twelve and Bill is really good and healthy and they already feel like a team. There are definitely Donna and Ten vibes as far as the whole Bill demanding respect thing and I love it. 

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: In the original plan for the live action Scooby Doo movie, Velma and Daphne were going to have a romantic side plot. The movie itself was originally intended for an adult audience, but then Warner Bros decided that it should be more accessible to a “family” audience, so part of their editing involved getting rid of that romance. But in the final production of the film you can still see little bits that could have led up to a romance between the two. For example, at one point Velma tickles Daphne, and Velma also refers to Daphne dreamily as “the coolest girl at Coolsville high”. However at the end of the film Fred and Daphne kiss, and that relationship is so out of nowhere. It is built from nothing. If anything, the most developed heterosexual relationship was that between Fred and Velma because of the scenes where Velma shows jealousy of Fred choosing Daphne and of being overshadowed by Fred. But no, they choose to put Fred and Daphne together. We could have had canonically gay Velma and Daphne, but instead they give us another heterosexual relationship, and they don't even do that right.
Yuri on Ice interview translation - PASH! 2017/05 (p24-25)

I am pleased to bring you the very first interview with director Sayo Yamamoto!!! You don’t know how much I’ve been waiting for this… This one is pretty general because of course she has never been interviewed before so they are asking her the basics, but it’s very interesting to finally hear things from her perspective too, since she’s the one who started it all. More interviews with her will be appearing in other magazines in the near future, I’m looking forward to those ones too.

Also, I believe a bright future is to be expected for Yuri on Ice, since she seems to have lots of plans…!! (I was shivering typing out the translation, lol)

Translation is under the cut.
