How to create headspace to work on your art (and motivation is big BS)

Motivation is outdated, overrated and to be frank… big pile of… There were many books already written about that. The most recent one was Mel Robbins “5 second rule"  about that. Highly recommended read.

To wait for motivation is like saying ” I will work when it strikes me… so once in a week… month… year" “I will work when I feel like it tomorrow”. What will you do when the muse will never come ? How you will practice in meantime, how you will grow your skills? 

It baffles me. How could we, as artists, collectively agreed to work after motivation sparks. How could we not discarded it as a flawless way of thinking? If we just change word “artist” with “computer scientist” it suddenly starts to  sound ridiculous. Saying “I won’t work today … I am not motivated” suddenly became this “get out of jail” card. Other people will just nod head with face expressing full understanding. 

Sure, you can be the one artist that will wait for this creative spark, but I don’t know where and how far it will take you with your career. Last time I checked the most prominent and successful artists had thousands of works done :  Rembrandt had produced well over 600 paintings,[nearly 400 and 2,000 drawings and Picasso …13,500 paintings 100,000 graphic prints or engravings 34,000 book illustrations 300 sculptures and ceramics

If you want to be professional, act professional. Find a structure for your work, organize yourself, have some work habits. I have some tips to gradually walk from being dependent on feeling to work and rather be able to work everyday just by learning structure and discipline.

Identify your distractions. Only after you identify them you can eliminate them. Spend too much time on Youtube? Create a new account where you will only have art videos background music. When you work there should be no temptation to even check new video. My Youtube home page contains only of instrumental music and art videos.  For myself I found out that best music for work would be relaxing jazz, instrumental music from movies or anime. Having urge to check mail every 20 min? Decide on times of the day when you will check mail. Ideally do it in the morning and after you are done with work. 

Keeping focus for 1 hour straight is too much? Be mindful about the decision you are making everyday.  Do you often times walk up to the fridge while you are working or go to make some tea/coffee? Just to distract you from doing your work and create art? This is something we do to avoid working and still justifying it. 
If you have problems with big stretches of ‘deep work’ use some method like Pomodoro Technique  . Every 25 min of work you have 5 mins break and once you did 4 cycles you get longer break. Aim to have 8-10 pomodoro sessions.To be able to work without distraction for longer period take a look at book by Cal Newport - 'Deep work : Rules for Focused Success in Distracted World’. Author will give you some remedies for your problem with focusing. 
Have a goal. Based on that you will be able to understand what to do and plan your day, week accordingly. If you have goal then you will have deadline. Deadlines are good! they help you finish work. Every finished work will always be 1000 times better than the best work that you only finished in your imagination. 

Stop trying to be perfect. The reality we all strive for perfection but we will never get it. Focus just on producing rather than aiming for unreachable goal. The less your expectation are, the less fear of failure you have and thus the less mental power you need to have to even start doing something. Just think for a second what is for you fear of failure and why are you afraid. Then realistically what will happen when you won’t deliver the masterpiece that is in your head. Exactly. Nothing will happen. You will probably just come to conclusion that it was from the beginning the fear of being judged by other people. You shouldn’t - no one has right to do that and if they do it shouldn’t be your problem that someone wants to bring you down.

Train yourself to write down your tasks. Break down bigger tasks into smaller ones, to write task for everyday. If it’s not in calendar you will probably won’t do it. You can find digital tools to help you with that. There are some apps there to organize your days. What I use is Todoist. You can find something that works for you because this is something very personal how we organize a day. Maybe you are against digital tools and prefer old fashioned paper calendar. Explore, search and try out. For me works mix of digital and traditional. I have notebook just for planning and I add to that Todoist and Evernote. Evernote is great to make quick notes, keep my bookmarks organized and writing down important informations. 

The most important routine is to keep your everyday practice of drawing/sketching. Personally I have few sketchbooks that I fill simultaneously. I explore, I let myself be free there, do mistakes, ink , study, copy masters, do imaginative work, make creative mess. However it opens your mind and let you find out new influences for your work. No one have to look at it because it serves another purpose. Write down dates when you draw - this will help you with keeping daily practice. Make it a goal to fill 4 - 6 sketchbooks a year. That goal will force you to try at least doodle simple 10 min sketch. It is doable and honestly you will see progress but be patient. Keep your tools visible. Surround yourself with them. 

All the above will help you with structure for your day. It won’t take back from your creativity. On the contrary. You will find you have more time and do more each day. You finally start things and finish them.  You will train your willpower to focus on work. Willpower is like muscle it require work to be strong. That will lead to your better focus and ability to deep work. What’s most important you will work on daily basis. There will be variety of course. Some days you will just feel bad but at least you won’t try to make it as excuse to not work on your art.

Part 1 // Part 2 coming..soon?  

Let me know if you think I should do a part 2 with actual plot!

The Yoon Kingdom

Ask any citizen of the Yoon Kingdom, and they will tell you that the mountains and valleys to the far North and West were put in place by the first Yoons that walked the land.  It’s believable, as the royal family is known for their stunning height.  Who else could have crafted mountains that tall?  The Yoon Kingdom is most known for their stunning scenery.

The Lee Kingdom

This kingdom is surely the most striking.  The citizens tend to take after the beautiful royal family.  Some claim that the first Lees were gods, and that they are responsible for putting the stars in the sky.  One look at the Lee royal family, and anybody would believe them.  In addition, the Lee Kingdom is well known for their extensive libraries.

The Kim Kingdom

Kim Kingdom citizens never have a bad day in their lives.  There are countless festivals and feasts thrown by the royal family to keep the spirits of their citizens high.  Any person, citizen of the Kim Kingdom or not, is welcomed with a warm heart.  Aside from their festivals and feasts, the Kim Kingdom is most well known for their distinct architectural style of buildings.

The Park Kingdoms

The two Park Kingdoms were once one, a very long time ago.  Now, two separate families rule over the two lands that share a border.  

The royal family of the central Park Kingdom serve as the main support for the government of the land. Without them, the land would likely fall into ruin.  The kingdom is also known for its lush forests and game hunting, a gift that the citizens claim was bestowed upon them by the sky gods.  

The Eastern Park Kingdom is known for having citizens with strong souls and bodies.  The extensive coast lines offer many opportunities for fishing and for trade with far off lands.  However, travelers might find themselves feeling a bit closed out when they meet the citizens of this kingdom.

The Moon Kingdom

The Moon Kingdom is the oldest of the kingdoms.  As far back as the records go, the Moons have always been around.  For this reason, the Moon royal family is often deemed as the True Royal family.  Despite this grand title, the Moon royal family is actually quite elusive.  The kingdom is most known for their grand balls, which occur every other year, and their extravagant parties thrown for the royal families and nobles of the land every season.

To learn about the princes of these fine kingdoms, please keep reading beyond the cut.

Prince Yoon Sanha

  • He is the youngest of three princes in the Yoon Kingdom (so he is not the crown prince).
  • The prince is most often found studying (as advised by his parents, the King and Queen Yoon).
  • However, he does slip away from his studies.  This happens more often than not because his tutor has a weak spot for him.  How cute can he be??  It’s not fair.
  • Instead of studying, Prince Sanha will often take his most recent favorite musical instrument, set up in the middle of a busy area (usually outside of a flower stand), and play music for the people.
    • This always draws a lot of attention.
    • It also always ends up in the King’s Guard coming to fetch him.
    • Why can’t he just stay at the palace? his father always thinks.
    • The citizens’ happiness always goes up after seeing Sanha out of the palace.
  • Despite the far traveling distance, Prince Sanha has become close friends with Prince Minhyuk.
  • Prince Sanha also enjoys making friends with other boys his age from his own kingdom.

Prince Lee Dongmin

  • As the oldest son of King Lee, Prince Dongmin is next in line to take the throne in the Lee Kingdom.
  • Prince Dongmin seems to be the favorite prince of the entire land, whether they are residents of the Lee Kingdom or not.
  • While his looks are certainly stunning, he is loved more for his quirky personality.
  • Prince Dongmin is kind of a clutz.
  • Most often, people can find Prince Dongmin riding out to one of the libraries in the kingdom.  He’ll just pick up his things in the palace and suddenly leave (much to the disapproval of his parents, but they don’t really stop him because at least he’s learning).
    • His favorite library is the one closest to where Lee Kingdom meets Kim Kingdom and Park Kingdom.
    • This also happens to be the library furthest away from home.
    • He’s definitely not running away from his responsibilities.
    • Okay, maybe he is.  But could you sit through 3 hours of a language class a day when it’s a language you don’t want to learn?  Probably not.
  • Prince Dongmin often visits Prince Sanha unexpectedly throughout the year.  He has a soft spot for the young prince.  Who doesn’t?

Prince Kim Myungjun

  • He is the oldest non-crown prince in the land.  
    • Just don’t let him hear you say that.
    • He doesn’t like his age to be pointed out.
  • Prince Myungjun is usually the one that organizes the festivals.  Music festivals, tournaments, fashion extravaganzas; he’s in favor of it all.
  • Prince Myungjun is often called “the Prince of Art” because of his art donations to the kingdom.
    • His favorite pass time is visiting villages and painting their roads and buildings for them with the help of some of the villagers, of course.
  • Don’t bring up Prince Jinwoo when Prince Myungjun is in the room.  He will almost always immediately start complaining.
    • It’s not because he has a crush on the youngest son of the central Park Kingdom.  Totally not.
  • He is usually the one that citizens follow when it comes to fashion, as his looks are always sensible but unique.

Prince Park Jinwoo

  • He’s the youngest son of King Park, but King Park has not claimed one of his sons as his successor, yet.  Prince Jinwoo could very well become the crown prince and future King Park.
  • Until then, though, he’s going to keep expanding the protection of animals in the kingdom.
    • He’s already passed numerous laws guaranteeing the protection of some of the more rare wildlife.
    • Hunting season is also strictly enforced.
  • When he turned 16, he was invited across the sea to marry the crown princess of a quite powerful kingdom.  However, he denied the invitation.
    • The citizens of the central Park Kingdom (and most of the citizens of the entire land in general) have come to believe that should Prince Jinwoo take the throne, he would have a king by his side instead of a queen.
    • Prince Jinwoo doesn’t mind the rumors since they’re true anyway, oops.
  • If you bring up Prince Myungjun around Prince Jinwoo, he’ll immediately turn red.  His friends like to tease him by doing this all the time.

Prince Park Minhyuk

  • As the oldest son in the kingdom, Prince Minhyuk is the crown prince.
  • He has a very defined image: strong and silent.
  • Prince Minhyuk has competed in many tournaments across the land, ever since he was a child, and he has come out on top on nearly all of them.
    • He always wins the Park Annual Tournament.
    • And it’s not because he’s royalty.  It’s because he’s just that good.
  • Rumors, however, have started to spread that Prince Minhyuk isn’t the strong, silent, brooding guy that he seems to be.
  • Prince Minhyuk was spotted helping out in the orphanage near the Park palace.  Since then, the entire kingdom has pretty much professed their love for their crown prince.
  • He keeps in close contact with Prince Sanha, as well.  People have often wondered if Prince Minhyuk intends to marry Prince Sanha because of just how close the pair of princes seem to be.

Prince Moon Bin

  • Not much is known about Prince Moon, the crown prince of the Moon Kingdom.
  • He was born on the night of a full moon, which citizens of Moon Kingdom often believe to be the sign of a great warrior king.
  • His younger sister was reportedly his favorite person until she left to marry the prince of a far away kingdom.
  • Prince Moon was once spotted leaving the kingdom in the direction of the Eastern Park Kingdom, though nobody in Park Kingdom could confirm his whereabouts.
  • He will only ever spend an hour at the seasonal parties thrown for the royals and nobles of the land.
  • Two years ago, though, he supposedly spent the entire night at the biennial Moon ball with Prince Dongmin.
    • Some attendees claimed to see Prince Bin smiling and laughing with Prince Dongmin, which is something Prince Bin doesn’t do easily since his sister was married off.
    • The fact that Prince Dongmin made Prince Bin smile and laugh so easily sparked quite a few rumors.  Citizens all across the land are secretly hoping for a union between Prince Bin and Prince Dongmin.
  • Prince Bin is, overall, the most elusive member of the Moon royal family that there has ever been.

@rukihimeweek Day 6 “Fashion”

I am nervous because although it’s not the first time for me drawing Orihime, it’s the first time I actually upload something with Orihime and there are tons of super talented Orihime artists °_° Orihime was always a character I found especially difficult to draw because she has a very characteristic and beautiful smile and whenever I draw her I can’t catch this smile. But I wanted to draw something for RukiHimeWeek. So here’s some Hime.

Anyways, I love the girls in nice kimono fashion and I wanted to draw them with this kind of hairdo. For some reason I especially like Orihime with this style. 

Thank you so much for organizing the RukiHimeWeek. I think it’s a brilliant idea to appreciate the beautiful bond between the two girls ♥

I always wondered about the significance of Yashiro’s affair with one of Hirata’s men in one of the flashback stories. I could never really figure out why it was included and what was so important about it until recent plot developments. So here is my theory about the mysterious man from Yashiro’s early yakuza days.

ot5 as suburban moms

niall: hosts “bake sales” that aren’t so much bake sales as much they’re opportunities to see the other moms. enrolls her kids in golf classes as soon as they’re able to walk. kicked out of the PTA for being drunk during a meeting. chaotic good.

louis: soccer mom. owns a white minivan that looks like a tornado hit it from the inside. lowkey flirts with the other moms whenever she gets a little wine in her. she’s THAT mom who will fight a referee at her kids’ soccer game for “being unfair”.

liam: dorky mom who probably prints out personalized shirts with the kids’ names on them when they go to disney world together.  a Cool Mom  ™ who tries to be hip with the Trends ™ but lowkey embarrasses herself.

zayn:  is a real life nancy botwin. buys organic produce only. runs a “parenting today” type blog but only updates it like every 7 months. has more pets than children and calls them all her “fur babies”

harry: easily offended mom. wants to speak to the manager. her kids are embarassed by her fashion sense.goes to a pilates class after work. knits sweaters and crochets those “home sweet home” thingies and sells them on her etsy shop

A word synonymous to a studyblr is probably productivity. On every one of these blogs, you will find multiple posts about productivity, even I am doing a “days of productivity” to help me stay motivated. But when you study you shouldn’t just get the most work done but you should study effectively. Here are my tips on how to get the most done.

1. Use the Leitner System

the Leitner system is a very easy way to learn vocab words or basically anything on a flashcard. You probably have already used this way of studying but let me break it down for you. You basically go through all of your cards and the ones you don’t know in one pile and the ones you do in the other. Then you do the ones that you don’t know and continue this process. Once there are no cards in the “don’t know” problem then you go through all the cards again and repeat. This helps you memorize things very easily and in a short amount of time.

2. The Pomodoro Technique

Now, this one is one of the oldest in the book but I feel like it should be on the list anyway. It is so dope that I am just… So the way you use this technique you work for 30, rest for 15, work for 30, rest for 15, work 30, rest 15, work 30, rest 25. It is a great way of studying because it gives you short breaks in between and it is so much better than cramming for a test. If you are looking for a more relaxed type of studying, then this is for you.

3. Write it down…in blue!

We live in a digital age and in the studyblr community most of us write things down in BuJo’s and notebooks. But if you don’t do that (which is fine) I urge you to write things down. If you are using pen and paper it will get in your brain faster because it takes more time to write each word out rather than tapping at the keys. Also, It will be more helpful if your write in blue, rather than black because your brain remembers that easier.

4. Chunk your study sessions.

If you cram one long session of studying, chances are the things you practiced at the beginning of the session have probably already left the brain. If you chunk your study sessions than you will remember things better because you will have learned less information over a longer period of time. Before your test, you would also do a review session so you see if you need to relearn stuff that you already studied.


For the last thing on the list. One thing that I find really helpful is making study guides after units or even just for small test. If you write down all the things that you learned in an organized fashion, then you will have made some study materials and you reviewed for the test. two birds with one stone!

I hope the were helpful. Please reblog and share the knowledge,


Ok I know we are all very concerned about Kazuma’s disappearance for its obvious implications about the communication gap in Kazubisha

But consider this

I don’t think Bisha even knows how to dress herself without Kazuma. I think that ever since he became her exemplar, he’s monitored the changing fashion of the lower realm and bought clothes for Bisha accordingly. Like, I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if he laid out her outfits for her every single day. He probably has a hidden room in the manor that contains all of her clothes (like all of them, even 800 year old ones), which are systematically organized according to style, color, and where it would be appropriate to wear them. Hiyori’s gonna find Bisha wandering around with Shikki on because she literally does not know where her clothes are. Or how to wear them.

SVTFOE Role Reversal

This has probably been done before but consider this-

Marco Diaz as the prince of Mewni sent to Earth by his fun loving parents in order to learn how to “loosen up.” The boy has a wand with unlimited inter dimensional magic and he uses it to organize his collection of paper clips by color. It is clear that the boy needs a serious intervention.  He is sent to live with the Butterfly family. 

Moon Butterfly is nice but distant and often gossips in German with her husband. River Butterfly is a burly man full of strength, good will and the tackiest fashion sense. Star Butterfly is the crowning jewel of the family, a pale, wild young girl, her wide eyes and stretching smiles notices Marco’s magic self immediately. After blowing his cover at school, the two often get into magical mishaps that is goaded on by Star.

 Serious knightly Marco learns the thrill of wild adventure, of fear dancing with euphoria, and of magic drumming through his veins.  Bright, brave Star learns that belief does not wane, the keen hunger to soak up knowledge, and taking chances on slouchy boys in hoodies sometimes pays off. 

Jackie is the Siren Princess and the girl that Marco has been crushing on forever. Her voices carries gales of hurricanes and seagulls screeching. 

Janna is the Princess of the Underworld with her ashen smokey tendrils of hair and glistening teeth, she is the bane of Marco’s existence. 

Tom Lucitor is the fiery rebel ex boyfriend of Star. Dressed in black with spiky combat boots, he is a force to be reckoned with at school. Sulky and unforgiving, he proves to be an unlikely friend for Marco. Star views him with complicated affection. 

Basically, Marco is the Mewni Prince, Star is the eccentric human, and every role is flipped.  

Okay like I’ve been saying this for months and since Katie McGrath confirmed this headcanon let me tell why Lena Luthor is so damn textbook Gryffindor the hat wouldn’t even touch her head before sorting her.

  • The girl runs headfirst into danger because “you cant live in fear”. Lena lives with constant death threats thrown her way but tries to live as “normally” as she can. That’s bravery.

Exhibit A: the first press conference

there is literally a direct threat on her life. and. she. chooses. to. go. speak. in. public. 

Exhibit B: all the other press conferences (when will she learn? probably never bc she’s a fucking gryffindor.)

Exhibit C: buys a company without knowing anything about it lol 

its an investment she said. its not as a favor to a friend she said. sure jan

  • but shes also very intelligent, clever, and has a heart of gold.

So why is she not a Ravenclaw or a Slytherin? because neither would put themselves directly in harms way to solve a problem, which is something this lovable idiot is incapable of doing. (she’s reckless, we’ll get to that)

Also no to the great loyal yellow house because Ms. Luthor has missed too many meals to qualify as a Hufflepuff.

I’m not saying other houses wouldn’t risk their necks to save others (Slytherins are as ride or die as you can get), but the most-likely-to-catch-a-bullet-for-you, in a human sorta way, award goes to Gryffindor. (Ravenclaws would just push you outta the way. Slytherins would probably shoot the fucker first.)

  • And my favorite, in true, Gryffindor fashion Lena’s greatest strength and weakness is her recklessness. (especially about people she cares about) 

Exhibit A: Jack

She goes to jack after Kara tells her about the nanobots. She doesn’t hesitate and confronts him about alleged murder.

Exhibit B: we need to raise money AND catch the bad guys? hold me beer -lena, probably

“You can’t live in fear.”™  (motherfucken Gryffindor AF)

Exhibit C: “…and I called the police.”

Okay, I just want to take a moment to say how extra this was. She learned that Lillian was a part of an anti-alien organization, set up a trap for her, and dealt with it on her fucking own.

Ms. Luthor often finds herself in tight situations she willingly walked into. She has a blindspot once people she cares about are in danger and that list probably includes the entire population of national city which leads us to…

Exhibit C: ‘mmmwhacha say’

Edge has not only hit Lena’s reputation with his wicked schemes. He also hit her biggest fear: turning into her family. To be clear, it’s more on the fact that she thought she was doing the right thing but apparently causing more harm than good. So this turns pretty ugly and personal real fast. 

I would say walking literally into the hornet’s nest is a brave thing to do but not only did she kick it, she pulled a gun on it too.

Exhibit D: “Save the chemicals!”

(I joke about Lena Luthor and her self sacrificing ass all the time. But LISTEN. I LOVE LENA LUTHOR AND HER SELF-SACRIFICING ASS. I wish she didnt do this often bc i lose 10 years of my life every time she puts herself in danger but it’s something that’s always going to be her choice. She didn’t even hesitate, IM EMOTIONAL.)

Like do I even have to explain this one? (also i dont want to bc it drowns me in feels ok) 

But I will because that’s what this post is for, and I will do it in textbook Gryffindor fashion: bravery✔, nerve✔, chivalry✔, courage✔, daring✔.

It’s time to accept Gryffindor Lena into your hearts. 

anonymous asked:

Was there any way in the 18th century for (noble) women to be comfortable?,,,, did they have pockets? Could they breathe? Could they sit? Or did they just suffer all the time? I need answers this is eating me up

Actually, contrary to popular belief, 18th century fashion isn’t that uncomfortable. Stays (or ‘corsets’ if you prefer) were mainly there for breast support and keeping a good posture than for anything else. Think of stays as a primitive version of bras. The reason so many people think that all corsets were uncomfortable, is because of victorian fashion. The 19th century victorian corset is much different from the 18th century stays. It’s not so much for support as it is for bending the human body into impossible shapes. Many women in the victorian era had many internal problems, such as organs being pushed up into the chest cavity, and other similar horrors. Women in the 18th century didn’t have this problem because the stays weren’t structured in the same way. Some stays could be very restrictive and make it hard for you to breath due to it being tight on top of your chest, but generally this wasn’t an issue.

Panniers could make it hard to sit, and walk through doors (some doors at the Palace of Versailles had to be widened in order to accommodate the women’s  large hips) and were probably the most uncomfortable fashion in the 18th century. But people endured. Also, yes, they did have pockets!

18th century pockets were basically little bags that you fastened around your hips over a petticoat, could be accessed through the dress or top petticoat, and looked like this

A woman could fit anything she liked in these, with the unfortunate risk that the knot might slip and the pocket would fall off.

thevorpalbook  asked:

If the Guard had social media, who would be on what platform? Like, who's got Tumblr? Who's cultivating ~unique~ and indie playlists on 8tracks? Who's got a YouTube channel or a craft blog (it's Renata, she has the craft blog)? Who would be on Snapchat or Instagram if they could? Is there a group chat of some kind? Is there's anybody who's just the equivalent of "you kids get off my lawn" about it? Ancient and immortal vampires + their relationship to technology is endlessly interesting to me

Okay, this is a delight to imagine. 

  • Jane would probably run a book-review Youtube channel, where she conscientiously discussed books she recently read while sitting in a carefully-decorated corner of her bedroom. There’d be the requisite fairy-lights, and all the 15th century trinkets would be shoved out of sight. Occasionally, Alec would crash the video and give the book 0/5 Alecs because it didn’t have any zombie explosions. ( “An Alec is not a rating scale!” Jane would insist to no avail.)

  • Speaking of Alec, he’s still mourning the death of Vine with Felix, and he’d definitely have an Instagram and abuse hashtags. 

  • You’re not wrong: Renata would have a craft blog. She’d try out ideas from Pinterest and write happy, helpful posts so other people could recreate them too. Until, one fateful day, she runs across a Pinterest project that’s absolute nonsense and goes disastrously wrong. Betrayed by the internet, she descends into darkness. ( “I think I understand you now,” she tells a very confused Caius, who could swear that his supervillain origin story had more werewolves and less glitter.) 

  • Of course Corin would make 8tracks playlists. This is a mandatory stage of development for all gay vampires. I feel like she’d achieve a lot of popularity, because pining over pretty girls while listening to the Amélie soundtrack isn’t exactly rare. 

  • Demetri would run a fashion blog, because it is very important for nameless strangers to realize how handsome he is. Felix and Heidi would be his long-suffering photographers. (Just imagine Felix holding up a sheet of tinfoil to catch the light, as Heidi googles what the heck a DSLR camera is, and you understand Demetri’s situation.) 

  • Let’s be real: Felix would be involved in three different online fantasy sports leagues, minimum. And he’d very much have Snapchat. And he’d use all the filters. Heidi insists that this is grounds for never speaking to him again, probably. 

  • Heidi would have a nice, organized, properly-tagged travel tumblr. If any of her mutuals asked to meet up when she visited their city, they’d be surprised by the intensity of her refusal. 

  • Oh, and it goes without saying that Felix, Heidi, and Demetri have a group-chat. It’s there so they can check in with each other when they travel, and to stop Felix from yelling across the castle when he sees something funny and wants to share it with his favourite people. 

  • Finally, Grandpa Santiago doesn’t trust technology. Since I headcanon that he has a relatively modern girlfriend, he’s slowly coming around to concepts like selfies and texting. Reluctantly, though. He wants to write long-form love letters, darn it. 

Jaehee x MC x Zen (jaehee good ending spoilers):

  • ok tbh it would be super gradual and kind of not surprising at all for anyone
  • except for maybe jaehee
  • but you would be super adamant that she have a work schedule that wasn’t awful and left her time to relax and not worry about everything all the time
  • besides is a cafe it gets slow after about six or so anyway so there’s plenty of time to get stared on after-work work before you even close
  • you would start inviting zen over for drinks after his auditions or meetings with directors etc.
  • he definitely develops a crush on jaehee like. quick.
  • and you probably kinda coached him into getting past jaehee’s “you can’t be seen with me scandal oh no” stuff
  • and eventually they just became a Thing
  • sometimes you would watch the cafe alone for slow times so they could have lunches
  • or sometimes zen would help jaehee with the cafe by himself both to thank you for helping him and also to be alone with her
  • eventually you start crushing on them both (jaehee first tho. obviously.)
  • and they also both start crushing on you?
  • in secret they probably came up with a plan to incorporate you into their relationship after a While of them both feeling guilty and then both blurting it out to each other and going !!! when they realized what was happening
  • zen brought up the idea of polyamory first. jaehee is kind of old-fashioned and still worried about being too public with zen in case of bad rumors or bad press
  • but one day right before closing jaehee ran home “to get something important” 👀
  • and zen promised to stay and help out with the end-of-the-day cleaning and organizing etc. while you waited for her to come back
  • and as you were mopping you slipped and he caught you?
  • and just kind of. kissed you?
  • super uncomfortable what would jaehee say is he cheating on her already was it just adrenaline was he using her to get to you what is going on
  • but he noticed you didn’t have the reaction he would have hoped for so he backed off
  • and jaehee comes back and you’re trying to avoid looking at her or at least for too long
  • and this goes on for a while. probably about two weeks.
  • but it’s hard to own and run a business if your business partner is barely speaking to you so jaehee gives you a hot coffee while you’re doing some reports and just Looks at you for a while
  • “hey, is something wrong? you’ve been really weird around me and even zen lately and i don’t know what’s happening. is it something i did or said? do we need to talk?”
  • and you kinda just mumble at her
  • “sorry, what was that?”
  • “zen. kissed me.”
  • and she doesn’t say anything she just Looks at you so you hurry to explain
  • “it was that night when you had to run home for something and he stayed to help clean up and i didn’t mean for anything to happen i just slipped and he just? kissed me? and i wanted to give him time to talk to you about it first but it’s been weeks and you haven’t said anything and i’ve been feeling so guilty about it”
  • “i’m sorry jaehee please don’t hate me”
  • and she’s still just looking at you
  • and then she just smiles and kinda chuckles and says “i know. i told him to.”
  • error 404: brain not found
  • “look, MC, we both love you a lot, and for both of us it’s been more than platonic for a while. so i told zen to try and see if you were willing to maybe join us.”
  • of course she assures you that maybe the way he went about it wasn’t as great as it could have been and they don’t want to pressure you and that there wouldn’t be anything but platonic affection if that’s what you wanted
  • but of course. you love them both very dearly and already had feelings for them and if they were willing to try it then damn if you wouldn’t.
  • so you leaned in and kissed her right as zen comes in the cafe to pick her up
  • you both probably jumped as the bell jingled to announce his entrance
  • he’s super smiley. his two favorite people on earth and he gets to love you both at once.
  • it’s a good time for everyone
  • wait until the tabloids find out

Today, Sabine and Nick organized one of their most successful protests. Sabine was surprised when a model  from the Fashion District joined (this probably attracted many of the other protesters).

After the protest, Sabine met a young girl, about her age, who was admiring her political mural. Her name is Chloe, she’s a nurse and she lives in the Spice District.

The first operations for which our ancestors gradually learned to adapt their hands during the many thousands of years of transition from ape to man could have been only very simple ones. The lowest savages, even those in whom regression to a more animal-like condition with a simultaneous physical degeneration can be assumed, are nevertheless far superior to these transitional beings. Before the first flint could be fashioned into a knife by human hands, a period of time probably elapsed in comparison with which the historical period known to us appears insignificant. But the decisive step had been taken, the hand had become free and could henceforth attain ever greater dexterity; the greater flexibility thus acquired was inherited and increased from generation to generation.

Thus the hand is not only the organ of labour, it is also the product of labour. Only by labour, by adaptation to ever new operations, through the inheritance of muscles, ligaments, and, over longer periods of time, bones that had undergone special development and the ever-renewed employment of this inherited finesse in new, more and more complicated operations, have given the human hand the high degree of perfection required to conjure into being the pictures of a Raphael, the statues of a Thorwaldsen, the music of a Paganini.

—  Frederick Engels. (1876). The Part played by Labour in the Transition from Ape to Man

gatoradeinthemorning  asked:

hi snicketsleuth! I've got a question: to what extent does geraldine julienne affect the events of the series? we know she writes incorrect articles about the baudelaires and contributes to their being blamed for murder, but what about before they were orphaned? in the unauthorized autobio, we see esme gets her to spy on jerome. is it possible esme manipulates her into other things that affect the events of the series?

Hi, @gatoradeinthemorning! It’s a good question you’re asking.

Geraldine Julienne’s main role in the villains’ master seems limited to outing volunteer headquarters to the general public. It’s possible she leaked some other intel on the organization’s traditions but her knowledge of what V.F.D. does seems incredibly superficial. I doubt  she even knows that it’s called V.F.D. for that matter, she just knows that there exists a secret society which does… secret things?

From the looks of it, Geraldine hasn’t done much ever since Lemony left the country. Esme contacted her just before she married Jerome, which would put their first interaction some time after “The Bad Beginning” at the earliest. That’s at least fifteen years Geraldine has spent doing little but writing what she herself calls a “boring old column” whose content is largely invented. So I would say Geraldine was a minor pawn that the fire-starting side mostly forgot about until Esme involved her in her plans to marry Jerome.

Someday, I hope to uncover a major story — maybe a murder — but in the meantime, I just write a boring old column called “Secret Organizations You Should Know About”. Sometimes, in order to make the column more exciting, I write rumors or things I make up, instead of facts.
[Lemony Snicket’s un-Authorized Autobiography, p.42]

It’s actually easy to pity Geraldine. Before Lemony got fired from the Daily Punctillo, she used to write the fashion column, and before R.’s mother died, she used to write for the theater section.

This also means that J. will be transferred to the Financial Times, which means that G., that foolish girl, will become the new fashion editor, which means that I will probably be given the position of dramatic critic.
[The Beatrice Letters, L.S. to B.B. #3]

As a fan of Esmé Squalor, Geraldine obviously loves theater and fashion and would have probably thrived in this position. Now she’s stuck with a topic she has neither the competence nor the motivation to write about. So she has zero work ethic and has become desperate to please Esmé in whatever way possible.
