hc that nursey and dex are secretly really good at what the other person is majoring in

nursey secretly is a genius and is actually super good at pretty much all STEM subjects, but he grew up reading a lot and while he’s great at all of those typical nerd subjects he’s only really passionate about lit and poetry which is why he chose english as a major

meanwhile dex is actually a literature NERD and he did really fucking well in high school english and he really loves writing, and for the longest time he wanted to pursue that, but because of his upbringing he decided to pursue comp sci as a major. and he isn’t even particularly good at comp sci and engineering and maths??? but he chose a major that was ~practical~ and would give him the most job prospects bc after his childhood in a small town where everyone knew everyone, he wanted out, he wanted to leave, and he knew to do that he needed a steady source of income, had to earn enough money to actually sustain himself.

so on top of nursey being attractive af and kinda annoying, dex kinda resents him for basically going after the future that he really wanted. dex HATES that nursey essentially has everything he wants

Lesson 9: Past tense 았/었어요, irregular verbs/adjectives, “also”, and making negative sentences.

In lesson 8 we had a look at conjugating sentences in the informal polite present tense. Today we’re going to have a quick look at the informal polite past tense. The informal polite past tense can indicate an action as well as a state of being. The rules for past tense conjugation are the same as for the present tense.

If the final vowel in a verb stem is 아 or 오, then 았어요 is added to the verb stem.

살다 (to live) → 살 + 았어요 = 살았어요
오다 (to come) → 오 + 았어요 = 왔어요 (오 + 았 = 왔)
가다 (to go) →  가 + 았어요 = 갔어요 (가 + 았 = 갔)

If the final vowel in a verb stem is a vowel other than 아 or 오 then 었어요 is added to the verb stem.

먹다 (to eat) → 먹 + 었어요 = 먹었어요
읽다 (to read) →  읽 + 었어요 = 읽었어요
마시다 (to drink) → 마시 + 었어요 = 마셨어요 (마시 + 었 = 마셨 )

 Any verb or adjective that ends in 하다 becomes 했어요 in the past tense.

말하다 (to speak) → 말했어요
공부하다 (to study) → 공부했어요
피곤하다 (to be tired) → 피곤했어요

Now let’s take a look at some irregular verbs/adjectives. Some verbs and adjectives change their stem spelling when certain endings (such as 아/어요) or conjugations are applied to them. Some verbs and adjectives that have irregular forms are ones with stems ending in ㄷ, ㄹ, ㅂ, ㅅ, 으, and 르. Today we’re going to have a look at 으 verbs/adjectives only. Other irregular verbs will be covered in a later lesson.

If the final vowel of a verb stem is 으, the 으 is dropped entirely when the verb is conjugated, and the next to last vowel is used to determine spelling instead.

If the vowel before 으 is 아 or 오 then 아요 is added.

바쁘다 (to be busy) →  바쁘 + 아요 = 바빠요 →  레오 씨가 바빠요. (Leo is busy.)

If the vowel before 으 is a vowel other than 아 or 오 then 어요 is added.

예쁘다 (to be pretty) →  예쁘 + 어요 = 예뻐요 →  채연 씨가 예뻐요. (Chaeyeon is pretty.)

If the verb stem is monosyllabic, 어요 is added.

쓰다 (to write) →  쓰 + 어요 = 써요 →  켄 씨가 버스 번호를 써요. (Ken writes the bus number.)

What if you wanted to make a negative sentence? There are numerous ways in Korean to make a sentence with a negative connotation, but in this lesson we’re going to be looking at one of the easiest and most common ways a sentence can be made negative using the adverb 안 (not).

Placed directly before a verb or adjective, 안 is used to express negation.

안 + verb = 레오 씨가 오늘 회사에 안 가요. (Leo isn’t going to the office today.)
안 + adjective = 그 옷이 안 예뻐요. (Those clothes aren’t pretty.)

For verbs that end with 하다, the 안 is placed between the noun and 하다.

noun + 안 + 하다 = 홍빈 씨가 공부 안 해요. (Hongbin doesn’t study.)

Now let’s take a look at how to express similarity using the subject/object marker 도 (also, too). There are multiple ways to do this, but using 도 is one of the easiest.

Original sentences:
켄 씨가 치킨을 좋아해요. 레오 씨가 치킨을 좋아해요. (Ken likes chicken. Leo likes chicken.) While these sentences are grammatically correct, it is much more natural when speaking this way to say that Leo likes chicken too.

Using 도:
켄 씨가 치킨을 좋아해요. 레오 씨도 치킨을 좋아해요. (Ken likes chicken. Leo also likes chicken).

Keeping everything we covered today in mind, can you understand the following? :)

켄 씨가 피곤해요. 학교에 안 갔어요. 켄 씨가 공부 아 해요. 오늘 레오 씨도 학교에 안 갔어요. 레오 씨가 바빴어요.
Ken is tired. He didn’t go to school. Ken doesn’t study. Today Leo also didn’t go to school. Leo was busy.

anonymous asked:

do you think they'll be romance between KMT's character and Finn? Cause I still feel like finnrey was set up in tfa

For starters, I still very much agree that FinnRey was set up in TFA, and that’s the ship I’m rooting for.

However, the thing about KMT’s character is that I don’t really like assuming ships will happen before I even know the character’s name or what she’s like. A lot of this assumption that Finn and KMT’s character will be hooking up stems pretty much entirely from reports that John and Kelly had chemistry reads together before Kelly was cast, which doesn’t always indicate romance. I mean, John had to read with Daisy before he was cast, and you conveniently don’t see FinnRey haters acknowledging that. Daisy had to do chemistry reads with Mark (eye emoji for a different reason, but I digress). Heck, there’s even a rumor circulating that Kelly did chemistry reads with Mark, too. Chemistry reads are usually to see if two actors who need to spend a great amount of time together onscreen click well, and there are a great number of needed dynamics that aren’t romantic.  

My main point is that I think the fandom should do more speculating over KMT’s character herself instead of over whether or not she’s going to be Finn’s girlfriend. If she and Finn end up together, will I complain or throw a fit? Nope! I’ll accept it and probably enjoy their dynamic regardless. But I do think it’s really, really important for us to acknowledge that this character is important in her own right and will likely have more going for her besides being a love interest, if she even is that. The fact is that we have no factual information to indicate Finn and this new character get involved romantically, so I’m going to wait and see what else we hear before I start seriously considering whether or not a FinnRey vs. Finn/KMT thing is going to be happening here. 

Photoredox catalysis is a large part of what we investigate in our lab (Jui Group, Emory University). Whether our chemistry utilizes iridium centered photocatalysts or organic dyes (pictured here: fluorescein and rhodamine), the reactions are always stunning since they are irradiated by a blue light. The reactions are held in a custom reaction tube holder designed and 3D printed by Dave.

Ahhh I asked you about my succulent a couple days ago but I just checked up on it and I’ve seen super small white bugs crawling over the stem. I’ve cut all of the dead leaves off from the bottom but the bugs are rotting the stem!!! Help!!! What can I do to save my poor baby??

Hello! 

I messaged you directly when I saw this in my inbox so I hope you got my message.. If not, it looks pretty badly rotted at stem, I’d say there’s not much you can do to save it, just try to pluck off as many leaves as you can to propagate them. If you really want to try saving it, just remove all the bugs with alcohol, wipe down the stem with alcohol too, and don’t water at all until it’s dried out completely. Good luck!

WHIPPLEFILTER, favorite thing and moment about Salqueen & why?

AT THIS VERY MOMENT IN TIME, my favorite Salqueen scene is this one, which is a separate post because this Ask didn’t like the formatting of my gifs. :( I watched Cars again last night (and honestly, kinda want to watch it again tonight lol) and this little scene made my heart swell, especially since I was primed for it by your answer to my ask yesterday!

My favorite thing about their relationship is that the drama of them stems not from, well, drama, but from how rock solid they are. I’m trained to ask, Where’s the story? And I feel like when you approach a lot of shipping or romantic stories, the drama of the relationship, or its story, tends to stem pretty reliably from the potential for betrayal, or small unspoken agonies, or precarious disagreements. Which makes a lot of sense, because drama is drama, and happy couples are generally seen as a potential resolution to a story, but not a story in itself. 

But I feel like for Lightning and Sally, it’s not that they’re together now and the story is over–they make happiness itself a dynamic, a story worth telling. The drama is their trust in each other, their concern for each other, the excitement they feel when they see each other, the degree to which they are invested in each other’s happiness and success. ‘Cause like, we’ve seen Sally go to bat for Lightning; and you know there’s never a moment when Lightning doesn’t want to hear about the Cozy Cone, or Wheel Well, or any number of other projects Sally’s got going.

To me, Lightning and Sally are a reminder that happiness is a story worth telling, and a story to live–not just aspire to like it’s some fixed thing. …And, because that’s getting way more philosophical than I expected, they’re just really goshdarn cute, omg. <333333

You Don’t Have To Look Any Further

13 Days of Halloween:  October 19th: Jack-o-lantern carving!

So I’m working on a longer “Dex is a werewolf” fic that I will post later on!! But I am going to try and do a bunch of one shots that will kind of all go together, and I will keep them all in this tag (that is currently not working wtf) on my blog. Tags: Fluff, pre nursey/dex, canon typical alcohol, descriptions of pumpkin innards (in case that grosses anyone out), also Chowder being snarky. Title from Bite Down - Bastille + HAIM

Derek Nurse has never been a huge fan of pumpkin carving. Sure, the end result is pretty nice, but pumpkin stems are prickly, and the pumpkins themselves are heavy and dealing with the guts is more than gross. Not to mention the fact that his designs never come out as cool as he imagines them. He sighs and tips back in his chair, purposefully ignoring the way Chowder tenses and follows his movements with his eyes. He’s not that clumsy, he’s not going to tip the fuck - The back legs of the chair wobble and he grabs for the table, mentally apologizing to Chowder for ever doubting him. His pumpkin’s lopsided smile mocks him and his internal dialogue. 

God. He hates carving pumpkins.

Nursey reaches for his can of PBR, trying to pretend like the chill in the air doesn’t make him want to go burrow under the blankets in his dorm. Instead, he’s sitting out in front of the house in a rickety folding chair, hands freezing from the nasty pumpkin goop, and not wearing nearly enough warm clothing for the circumstances. When he was a kid, his mom used to let him carve his pumpkin at the kitchen table, but after the Pumpkin Gut Incident of 2015, Bitty had banned pumpkin carving from his kitchen. Nursey had tried to protest, but since he might have been the instigator of PGI-2015, his opinion was not valued whatsoever. So he sucked it up and helped Dex and C move the pong table outside, and maybe stared a little when Dex carried three folding chairs up the basement steps with one arm. You know, the usual.

My colours for the signs

Aries - Red, for fire, because you are mad and passionate. For blood, because that’s what runs in your veins and gives you the energy to do all of your reckless things, but also to think and to be kind. Because it is the colour of roses: beautiful and with thorns.

Taurus - Khaki, because it’s the colour of nature. It’s the colour of the plants that you seem to feel so at home with, the moisturisers you love to treat yourself with, the colour of mud, which takes a while to grow on you, but makes you more beautiful and has a lot of health benefits - like you.

Gemini - Orange, because it is bright and vivid like you. It’s the colour of an orange fruit – zesty and fun.. It’s the colour of the dawn, reminding me of the way your face lights up when you have an idea. It’s the colour of fire, because you’re zippy and zappy and never settled for too long.

Cancer - Blue, because it is the colour of the sea, where you feel most at home: and home is what really matters to you. It is the colour of the sky, which is as beautiful and endless as the emotions in your heart, and it is the colour of sadness and the tears you are always crying.

Leo - Golden, because it is the colour of precious metals, and you like to be treated like a monarch. It’s the colour of a lion: your namesake! And you are regal, fierce, and confident, just like one. It’s the colour of the sun in a romanticized painting, supporting us all with its energy and vitality.

Virgo - White, because it is the colour of paper, and paper is what you write on, plan on, organise your thoughts on. It is the colour of peace and purity, and your sign is the maiden, innocent, kind and virtuous. It is the colour of snow, and like the snow, you can be very cold.

Libra - Pink, because it is the colour of cartoon hearts, and you have such a big heart. It is the colour of the most beautiful flowers, pretty, but occasionally very delicate. It is the traditional colour of femininity, charm and elegance: you are charming, and you are very elegant.

Scorpio - Black, because it is the colour of midnight, when you can finally be alone and act how you want to act, be who you want to be. It’s the colour of emotionless-ness, and you always try to hide your emotions. It’s the colour of rebellion, and you never want to fit in.

Sagittarius - Sepia, because it is the colour of old photographs: we imagine you recording your travels with sepia maps and sepia lense cameras. It’s the colour you get when you mix all the other colours together, and you are too exciting for just one colour. It is the colour of wholesomeness and honesty.

Capricorn - Tan, because it’s the colour of leather and posh furniture, of minimalist, classic elegance, made for hard work and hard play. It’s the colour of coffee, which wakes you up in the morning and keeps you buzzed all day. It’s the colour of wood, sturdy and resilient, just like you.

Aquarius - Purple, because deep, metallic blue-purple is the colour of space, where we haven’t explored, gadgets and the future: you’re all about the future. It’s the colour of jellyfish, who can live forever, just as you want your ideologies to continue beyond you. It’s the colour of being unique; standing out.

Pisces - Turquoise, because it’s the colour of the most delicate leaves and stems: pretty, but oh, so fragile. Just like you. It represents peace and tranquillity. It’s the colour of the swimming pool, a place where you learn to be with the element that inspires you, excites your imagination; that being water.

Dorm Master!All Might Ficlet #2

Author’s Note: Not really what I intended to be the second one of these. This pretty much just stemmed from thinking about Toshinko headcanons. 

Two things to keep in mind: 1.) in this Toshinori is ace and has little to no experience with romance. 2.) This is raw and a bit of a mess (I feel a little embarrassed posting it now that I think about it). It’s not my best work but I had a lot of fun writing it. Feedback is always appreciated and helps keep me going. Enjoy!

(Click here for the original Dorm Master!All Might fic in case you missed it or just want to read it again.)

-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-

Toshinori hummed a little tune to himself as he slipped an oven mitt on his hand and retrieved a baking sheet from the oven. He had been making use of the kitchen in 1-A’s dorm baking cookies that were shaped like rabbit heads (or one might think All Might silhouettes). It was a new recipe Toshinori had learned with the free time that came with being a retired hero. He gave the cookies a look over as they began to cool off. Toshinori smiled as felt pride swell up in his chest that came with a job well done. He went to fetch a tupperware container to store the cookies. But failed to notice the students walking into the building.


“ALL MIGHT MADE COOKIES!!!” came a sudden shrill shout that nearly gave Toshinori a heart attack.


The next thing he knew, his student’s were swarming over to the kitchen counter. Ready to ruthlessly devour all of his hard work like a pack of hungry wolves.


“Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hold it!” Toshinori called out as he blocked the way. “You guys can have one each! I need to save some of these.”


“Awww! Can’t you make more?” Uraraka asked. “Your cooking’s too good, it’s not fair!”


“Too bad, just one each.” Toshinori said firmly. He began passing out cookies to his students. He couldn’t stop himself from smiling. It was flattering that his skills in the kitchen were appreciated.


“Who are you giving these to, All Might?” Izuku asked before taking a bite out of a cookie.
