Knockout


Sliding across the kitchen tiles in her fluffy socks (and narrowly avoiding injury), she wiped down the black countertop with a damp cloth leaving a fresh citrus scent in its wake. Humming along to whatever 80s track that was playing over the sound system in Shawn’s dining area, she cleared the remnants of the cooking equipment from their dinner. Although he had pretty much just moved in, she had already made herself at home and despite his protests she always insisted on cleaning up. Besides, she practically lived there anyway.

And she didn’t mind cleaning up. Being an only child, she had never lived with a teenage guy before and was initially worried that when she visited, the once pristine apartment would look like a bomb had hit it - only going on what she had heard about teenage boys and cleanliness, of course. But she had to admit she was pleasantly surprised at how tidy Shawn kept his place. She supposed it had more to do with pride in having his own place rather than the interest to clean but either way, the condo was kept immaculate. There was rarely a moment she arrived and he wasn’t sweeping the hardwood floors. Something about it getting dusty, he insisted, though she just laughed and told him to put the damn brush away.

The final pot clanged as she placed it back in its respective drawer and she switched the stereo off with a satisfied sigh. Spotless. She furrowed her brow at the sound of the pounding bass continuing down the hall. Shawn had told her he was going to blow off some steam or something along the lines of that. She thought she really ought to start listening to him more rather than ushering him out of the kitchen so she could shamelessly sing without the presence of an actual vocalist. Truth be told, she was as tone deaf as they came.

Padding silently down along the hall that she knew Shawn would probably be feverishly sweeping later, she made out the song to be a Drake track accompanied by the rhythmic sound of punches hitting leather. As she grew closer, the door to his makeshift studio room was slightly ajar and she held onto the doorframe for dear life. Standing there in all his shirtless glory, she silently thanked whatever god that he had his back to her. Stance fixed and posture poised, he threw punch after punch at bag whose chains shook with each hit. He was slick with sweat and all her attention was fixated on the way his back muscles flexed and contracted with each jab. A limp curl hung down on his forehead while the rest at the back of his head were plastered to his neck with perspiration. His grey sweatpants hung low on his waist and she found it hard to concentrate when he let out the occasional low grunt as he threw a punch.

She knew he had taken up boxing as a way to keep fit while he was on tour and couldn’t make it to the gym. The thought of that alone was enough to let her mind run rampant. But experiencing the sight in person? Well, that was a whole other level of explicit thoughts and right now, her mind needed a big ‘Parental Advisory: Explicit Content’ sticker stuck to it.

Biting her lip with too much vigour, she inwardly prayed that her knees wouldn’t give out. The sound of someone collapsing in the doorway was sure to put a pause to his boxing session and she’d be damned if she was the one to stop him. It almost felt wrong watching him. Although he is her boyfriend, she still felt like she was trespassing - watching something that she shouldn’t. Her phone suddenly felt very heavy in her back pocket as the urge to record the unlawful sight in front of her welled up inside her. She wanted to capture the moment, project it on cinema screens, tattoo it on her body. Woah girl, reel it in she thought to herself, chastising her imagination for taking the scenario and running away with it.

“I told you not to box without gloves, didn’t I?” she said as the song ended. Her voice was a surprise to her own ears - it sounded controlled and not at all flustered as she had expected.

Whatever ounce of rationality she had mustered up before was completely and utterly demolished when her Greek God of a boyfriend turned around to face her - all glistening abs and taut pectoral muscles. The way his lips parted slightly as he panted and the innocent look in his eyes was enough to make her crumble into a heap of ashes. The early signs of stubble were visible above his lip and on his chin and although she wasn’t usually a fan of facial hair, she stifled a groan in her throat. What the hell was this kid doing to her? A smug smile spread across his face as he moved across the room to turn off the speaker and she dared her legs to hold her weight as she walked - or rather wobbled - towards him.

“Guess I should’ve listened, huh?” he replied with a sheepish grin as he looked from his knuckles back up to her face. She noticed the cuts dotted along his knuckles and the purplish hue of the bruised already forming underneath. He could only chuckle as she sighed and quirked a brow at him, his own way of saying ‘I’m fine, really’.

“The blood trickling down your hand says otherwise” she countered, taking one of his large hands in her own. Brushing a finger across his lower knuckles that escaped relatively unscathed, she shot him another look. But it was hard to even pretend to be mad at him when he was gazing down at her, his warm brown eyes alight with mischief.

“Sorry, mom” he said apologetically with a boyish grin, earning himself a swat to the chest.

“C'mon, Rocky Balboa” she said sarcastically and took him by the hand carefully. Leading him to the en suite in the master bedroom, she bent down to reach the first aid kit she had taken the liberty of buying. Admittedly, she was hopelessly accident prone and Shawn was clumsy so it was considered an essential as far as she was concerned. One of them was bound to do something potentially self-destructive. Which was laughably ironic considering the fact that she was fit to combust any second.

“Honestly, I’m fine. It’s not that bad” Shawn argued examining his hands. Looking up from her position on the floor and ready to shoot another unamused look at him, he towered above her and she lost all ability to speak. His damp curls hung around his face as he looked down and her and she couldn’t help but let her eyes wander to where the defined V muscle at his waist disappeared beneath the waistline of his sweatpants. His cheeks were as hot and rosy as hers felt. Whatever smart-ass comment that was on the tip of her tongue died. Combustion in 3…2… Clearing her throat and standing up quickly, she placed the first aid kit on the counter before putting a hand on her hip.

“Just- shut up and let me be a good girlfriend, alright?” she said playfully. As she opened the kit, he held up his hands in surrender. Getting to work disinfecting the cuts on his hands, she tried desperately to ignore his proximity to her and the heat radiating off his body. Needless to say she failed miserably. After she had finished wrapping the bandages around his knuckles (like he should have done before he started boxing), he pressed a kiss against her hair and mumbled his thanks against her skin. The height difference meant she was staring at the hollow in his throat that was gleaming with sweat and she couldn’t hold herself back from planting a kiss there. A surprised low groan escaped him and as she wound her arms around his waist, she could feel him pull back slightly.

“I’m all gross and sweaty, baby girl” he said in a low voice, the tenor in it reverberating through her bones.

“Good, that’s the way I like you” she said with a smirk, gazing up at him through her lashes before placing another slow, languid kiss at the base of his neck. He gripped her hips as he sucked in a breath when her teeth grazed his skin.

“Well in that case…” he said and in one swift motion, he had her hoisted up onto the counter and stood between her legs, earning a surprised gasp from her lips. “You won’t mind getting a bit sweaty yourself.”

Her mind raced and she crashed her lips against his. God, he had been gone for so long. Far too long. She had forgotten how much she had missed this. Missed the way his tongue brushing hers caused that feeling to erupt in her stomach every single time. The way he pulled her towards him by her hips, getting her as close to him as humanely possible. The way he groaned against her lips when she wound a hand into his wild hair. Usually he was gentle, slow. Nothing about him was gentle in that moment letting her know that he had missed her just as much as she had missed him. Kissing her way along his jawline to his ear, she kissed his earlobe before speaking with a challenging tone to her voice

“Go on then, baby. Make me sweat.”

hi emma!! i was just wondering if you had any tips to fight procrastination. when i try to start a study session, i find myself trying to do anything else but that. i over-plan my day, check more studyblrs, play with my pens... yet still want to succeed. this means i have to work on myself but do you have any advice going in that direction? ps: i can't use apps like forest or anything cause my parents don't like me purchasing apps of any kind :/

Hi! I’ll list a couple of small changes that might help you get started. Everyone is different in how they tackle procrastination but hopefully one of these will be your secret weapon.

  • remove any distractions - take away unnecessary things (for you this could be pens that aren’t really needed), leave your phone in the next room and/or turn off your notifications in your settings, sign out of your Tumblr. Browser extension like RescueTime or SelfControl can stop you going on certain sites. Or you could set parental controls until you’re done!
  • set yourself 3-5 tasks for your study session/day - keeping your to-do list shorter and more focused is likely to help improve your overall productivity. If you’re not looking at a lengthy to-do list or small time constraints, you’re going to work better! If you get those done, you can add another couple.
  • challenge yourself and take down progress - set yourself a goal for your study sessions. For instance, work solidly for 20 minutes twice. If you complete that, mark off somewhere that you did. Maybe on your calendar, a habit tracker, or on your phone. If you’re seeing your progress build each day, you’re not going to want to break the chain! 
  • develop your discipline - this is the best way to get yourself into the habit of studying. By doing something each day, rewarding yourself and getting positive reinforcement you’ll be more inclined to study and not feel such strong resistance.
  • listen to some music - I know it’s recommend to listen to instrumental music or soundtracks but honestly the music you enjoy is going to put you in a good mood. Blast it for a little bit, get hyped up! Then turn it down but have in low in the background. As long as it’s not taking over, there isn’t a problem having it playing quietly.
  • find an accountability partner - pick someone who you can rely on to check on your regularly and see how your tasks are coming along. You can send them your to-do list and then every few hours you can update them with your progress. You won’t want to let them down.
  • tackle things when you’re most alert and productive - for most people this is in the morning but if you’re an afternoon person, perhaps do smaller tasks in the morning and let yourself work on the harder stuff later. I also find getting dressed, washed, etc helps me be productive!
  • force yourself for 5 minutes - if you tell yourself “just 5 minutes” and get ready to go, you’ll be able to do it. Then repeat!!
  • put things in perspective - studying isn’t always fun but it’s got to be done. You might as well make the most of it. I never liked regretting not studying so I’d rather suck it up for a while than get a crappier grade than I wanted. Work until you’re done and then do something fun!

I hope this is useful!! x

PS4 Update 5.0 | New Features + Beta Access

PlayStation have today revealed the new features coming in system update 5.0 with the launch of the beta today for users that applied, any uses selected will receive an email.


Families on PlayStation Network

The existing master/sub-account system is being redesigned to be more family friendly. This new “family on PSN” system will offer a more flexible experience, make it easier to set up PSN accounts for children, and customize parental control settings for each family user. Below are the new features that will be introduced with update 5.00:

  • Family Manager, parents/guardians and child accounts

Each family on PSN will now have a Family Manager. In turn, the Family Manager can promote any other adult in the family to be a parent or guardian.

From there, each parent or guardian can customise the parental control levels of each child account, such as restricting certain age ratings or online access.

  • Individual parental controls

Before this update, the same parental controls were applied to all users on the same console, including adults. But with 5.00, all controls (including game age ratings) can be individually controlled for each child account.


Friend List Management

In place of the current ‘Favourite Groups’ tab, we’re adding a new ‘Custom Lists’ tab on the ‘Friends’ screen.

This will allow you to create and edit custom lists of your friends and arrange them into specific groups, based on the games you play, or groups of friends you like to hang out with online. For example, you can create a custom list of your Destiny teammates and easily send them raid invites.


Broadcast Feature Updates

  • Communities

If you’ve set up a community on your PS4, you can now link your community to your live gameplay broadcast. When a broadcast is linked to a community, the community button appears on the ‘Live from PlayStation’ spectator screen, allowing any spectator to jump directly into your community page to check out the details or join.

  • PlayStation VR

We’ve added a new setting in PlayStation VR: ‘Display Message to Spectators and Spectators’ Comments’. Once this is enabled, spectator comments sent during a broadcast are displayed not only in cinematic mode, but also in VR mode – so you’ll be able to read comments and interact with spectators from within your PS VR headset.

  • PlayStation 4 Pro

Good news for Twitch users: with this update, PS4 Pro will support 1080p 60fps streaming on Twitch.


Message Improvements 

You’ve already been able to share your favourite music to Twitter and Facebook via Spotify and PlayStation Music, but now you’ll also be able to share individual tracks by sending a message on PS4.

Your friends will be able to listen to the track directly from the message you send, and if they’re on their mobile device, they can jump directly to their Spotify app from the PS Messages app to check out the song and add it to their own playlist.


Notification Updates

We’ve added a new setting that allows you to disable pop-up notifications while you’re watching a movie or TV show on your PS4. This setting is set to ‘off’ by default, so go to Settings > Notifications to enable it.

Furthermore, you now have the option to turn off message previews on your pop-up notifications. If you turn this setting off, the pop-up notification will hide the message senders’ online ID and will display a generic user icon and message instead.

Lastly, you’ll have the option to change the colour of your pop-up notifications to either white (default) or black.


Quick Menu Updates

If you want to keep an eye out on what’s happening in your Notifications tab – like game download progress or new invitations – you can now access this directly from the Quick Menu without leaving your game.

Also, we’ve added a ‘Leave Party’ option in the Quick Menu, so you can easily exit a party and go right back to playing your game.


Virtual Surround on PSVR

PlayStation VR now supports 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound through your headphones when watching Blu-rays and DVDs in Cinematic Mode, making for an even more immersive viewing experience.


Improved Tournament Bracket Improvement

We’ve added a new ‘bracket viewer’ that shows full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on PS4, making it easier for you to see the current tournament standings.


Updated Language Support

The PS4 user interface now supports Czech, Hungarian, Romanian, Greek, Thai, Indonesian and Vietnamese languages.

Of course Blaine got into NYADA

I’ve seen people say that it’s ridiculous and unrealistic that Blaine got into NYADA while Jesse St. James and Elliot didn’t, but I find that to be completely untrue, especially from the point of view of an admissions officer and what kind of application lands on their table (narrative necessity to have certain characters around aside).

Jesse isn’t the brightest bulb, and iirc he had another student take his classes for him so he could participate in Glee club. That kind of academic breech would probably bar him from any major college, unfortunately, no matter how talented he was. (Then again Cassandra July drinks on the job and slept with one of her students so the ethics at NYADA is admittedly questionable)

We don’t know much about Elliot’s background. He goes to NYU which is a pretty darn good school so it’s not like he’s untalented or unqualified. Maybe he didn’t do as good as he liked at his NYADA audition. Maybe his year was exceptionally competitive and was just shy of getting in. Maybe the admissions officer didn’t think he was the right fit based on personal essay. There are so many easily explainable reasons, and it’s not like it’s unusual when applying to prestigious schools to get into one but not the other.

We know what Blaine’s college application is like though. Senior Class President. Valedictorian (or at least, the second highest GPA in his year). 27 clubs. Lead of the Dalton Academy Warblers, which seems to have the reputation of the high school equivalent of the Whiffenpoofs. Proficiency in piano and music theory. Blaine also has an extensive history of performance and competitions: summer theme park jobs, 1st and 2nd place in the National Show Choir Championships, two school musicals where he played the lead role in one, as well as placing in fencing and dressage going by the trophies in his bedroom. On top of that, we know that Kurt talked up Blaine to Carmen Tibedeaux to bolster his chances.

Only a ragingly incompetent admissions officer, and even then they would have to be high out of their minds, would look at his application and say, “Hmmm, this person does not have the work ethic or experience to be able to contribute positively to our school, neither is there the potential for him to be a successful alumni.”

Hell, if Blaine wanted to be a doctor, he could probably get into Johns Hopkins with that kind of application.

These past couple days have been amazing for so many fans! @taylorswift you deserve the biggest shout out today and everyday!! Thank you for taking the time to make us happy. I know not everyone has been noticed (me included) but it’s still so awesome! A couple of my friends on instagram have been noticed and it honestly makes me feel so happy inside!! So thank you Taylor for all you do for us!!!!

We Love You
