Hey love I cant wait to see what you put on this blog! I wanna be one of your first requests so could I have Bad Touch Trio play fighting with their s/o?
Regardless of the name spat, I will always love these three dorks.
France/Francis Bonnefoy: He’ll probably be surprised at this request, but will indulge in it anyways since he’ll have all the more reason to be closer with you. Francis will never put his entire strength into play fighting, as he never wants you to get hurt. Eventually you guys might just end up on the floor cuddling before he takes you to a more comfortable spot to cuddle.
Prussia/Gilbert Beilschmidt: He might not know his own strength compared to yours quite yet, other than just the basic fact that he’s a lot bigger. Play fighting with Gilbert might turn into play fighting with an older brother. Much more serious, and potentially more harmful. You’ll most always loose to him, he has the background and the capability to do so. Every once in awhile he’ll let you win, and he’ll always check to see if you’re hurt.
Spain/Antonio Fernández Carriedo: In the beginning he doesn’t really get the concept of play fighting, but like Francis, he’ll indulge in your request since he’ll have the chance to be closer to you. He might get more into it, once these play fights happen more often. Antonio will most always let you dominate him, loving your smile and giggles as you do so. Every once in awhile though, he might turn and tickle you to gain dominance, only to shower you in kisses once you’ve yelled at him to stop.
LITERATURE MEME | 10 works of prose - (6) the gormenghast trilogy by mervyn peake
He is climbing the spiral staircase of the soul of Gormenghast, bound for some pinnacle of the itching fancy - some wild, invulnerable eyrie best known to himself; where he can watch the world spread out below him, and shake exultantly his clotted wings.
WIP art trade for mavdpie. I really enjoy her vector ponies and this pretty little cobbler is Vivian, her fancy shoe maker OC. I’m enjoying drawing this pony regardless of the fact that i know i’ll spend three times as much effort on getting the hair right than the background and lighting effects. I love his concept too, a pretty and prim looking pony putting her hair up to work on her passion with tools in her hair and a dirty apron surrounded by a cluttered workshop… I’m gonna be pushing to get the vectors on the pony herself tonight.. This’ll be a rather involved project but it’s in my head now and i can’t stop. 8D
I don’t know about you, but I’m starving! It’s been some time since we
last heard from Riehl Industries, and there’s a good reason for it.
Partially due to my unwillingness to accept that it’s ready to go to
press, and partially to the fact that the vendor I’m going through
doesn’t know to email me both times they’ve had a hangup with the
cover(apparently you have to ask three times to get specific number for
definite parameters, and explain that the PDF template they offer of
what it should look like is practically useless). Regardless, this isn’t
the post I was waiting for. I was supposed to have the proof copy in my
hands on Monday, and barring the need to do anything outside of minor
changes, I was going to be a couple weeks away from the moment we’ve all
been waiting so patiently for. But sometimes you laugh an unfunny
laugh, look upwards, tailspin to frustration, yell F&#$!! to an
innocent cat, tear open someone else’s bag of chips, stand directly over
the heat register and comfort yourself.
The fun news is that the
lady I talked to today had the numbers I was after within seconds of
picking up the phone. So it’s off. Sometime between early next week and
two weeks from now I’ll have the proof(update: Proof copy due 4/20), and within two days I’ll have
the final run order placed. It’s not the time frame I ever expected, and
it while I can say it could’ve been done sooner, the fact is I wasn’t
going to wing it. In the end, I’m pretty excited with how it looks.
relatively big note is that it smells 100% better. But that’s because
the title just wasn’t sitting well with me. After a conversation with my
brother who earns a living doing all sorts of things that would help
you with layout and wording things properly, I finally decided to change
the name. There will be only one book with the previous title, and
that’s the proof copy. The name it will print with is “Two Steps Behind
in the City of Roses”. Trust me, because olfactory senses inform our
sense of taste, it’s gotta taste better, it looks great, makes a whole
lot of sense for my punctuality, the general age of my gear, the outlook
on the city that is contained within the cover, and hey–even this
update. I’m here all night!
But everything is ready for the day I
receive the shipment to start processing orders. I’ll be having a
release party at the Chrome HUB in downtown Portland for anyone to stop
by and say hello. I’ll have prints up and for sale along with copies of
the book. Oh, and most definitely there will be beer. Plenty O. Expect
another update near or coinciding the book arrival to detail the
Portland launch event. It’ll be a fun time, you can opt to pick up your
book in person, and I can say thank you to your beautiful faces.
OK, I’ve eaten half the bag. It’s time for desert. I’ll talk to you again very soon.
If you’d missed the Kickstarter discount and would like to get in on the pre-shipment pricing, head on over to Riehl-Photo.com and grab one of the limited copies remaining.
Why did you choose your URL?: I have no idea how to explain it, other than the fact that I go through phases where I just want to drop everything and go on an adventure, regardless of the consequences. hahaha What is your middle name?: Danielle If you could own a fairytale/fictional pet, what would it be?: Could I get a miniature dragon, you know, like the magical equivalent of a teacup pig or something? Alternatively, I would love to have a
Kneazle! Favorite color?: Green. Favorite song?: I don’t really do favorites, but anything by Queen is a pretty safe bet for me.
What are your top three fandoms?: Harry Potter, Merlin and Game of Thrones Why do you enjoy Tumblr?: I like being able to connect with people about my weirdly intense loves without being worried that they will judge me. Also, I love the sense of community and care I get on this website - plus, internet friends are amazing!!!
I’m pretty sure anyone I could tag at this point would be redundant, but if people want to do it, you most definitely should and then tag me!! I adore learning new things about you guys! XD

So, I’m reading all the codex entries found in the Dalish camp and I’m like, shit. Humans are assholes. Granted, I know that there are three sides to every story. The elvish side, the human side and the truth, but I’m willing to bet that the truth still doesn’t make the humans look particularly great. I’m not one to agree with systematic cultural genocide and forced slavery. I mean, those are the facts that have remained in memorable history, so it’s not like we can push those two off into the land of legend. Regardless of what happened with the elvish and human relations, I can’t get behind that. Also, we do have continued examples of human dickery in modern times with their stance on mages and the Circle of Magi. Fuck humans in Dragon Age. They’re pretentious shits towards other peoples and being they can’t easily understand. Doesn’t mean that I don’t like human characters in the game on a personal level, I’m just saying that their society leaves much to be desired. If I ever finish this Dalish elf run through, I may have to play the series as a mage to get that story line. Probably a dude mage so I can romance Morrigan. She’s fucking rad.
(pt 2) If you had looked at our blog, or googled our names or our project you would have been led to a cornell university site. We are not trying to phish or spam people, we are just trying to conduct research. Sorry if we upset you. You don't have to participate if you don't want to. If you still are interested now that you have the facts, please send an ask and we'll set up an anonymous IM interview together. Have a good day.
So…I posit that one of three scenarios is the case:
1) you are legitimately conducting research and have plenty of participants, in which case my skepticism, and me opting out is of no consequence to you.
2) you are legitimately conducting research but are having a hard time culling willing participants, in which case perhaps you should take heed: regardless of where your message may redirect, your message itself does a poor job of establishing credibility. Your first contact with a would-be participant should establish credibility, point blank. So go through the proper channels to get insignia use permission for your thumbnail and include all relevant details in your message. Including last names.
3) your whole operation is something other than what it claims to be.
At any rate, my part here is done. You can accept the constructive criticism and improve your study, if it is indeed a study, or not. Either way, at this point I will pass.
As the speed of change accelerate we all race to do more just to keep up let alone get ahead. In an effort to meet this challenge many people have become obsessed with time. People today feel as though they have time famine- Too many things to do with not enough hours in the day. As a result people try to manage their time. The truth is, it is rarely a question of time, and more a matter of how much energy we have.
In fact time is not something that can be managed. We can’t convert three hours in to six. There are 24 hours in a day regardless who we are or how desperately we need a few extra. And if we are exhausted, having another week to complete the task usually doesn’t help that much because we just don’t have the energy to get the job done. When we have the energy we can get through a huge amount of work and our productivity is enormous. With energy we can achieve more in one hour than we can in 10 when we’re ‘running on empty’.
So the first step to being more productive is starting to build awareness of what boosts and drains your energy.
How do you get more done? You know, we’re all wanting to achieve more, do more things for others, do more things for ourselves, there’s so much that we can do in this world; especially with technology and apps and everything going on around us. We just want to make the most of it, make the most of life but how do you really do that?
Well, for the longest time, there’s been this idea around that you have to manage your time better because time’s a finite resource; you only get so much of it. Once it’s over, it’s gone forever. You can’t get it back. And this is what I used to think was the most important. In fact, the first book I ever wrote, when I was learning all about personal development was essentially, how do you manage the time and cram the most into it. But, if I’d been able to follow everything in that book perfectly, then I’d be one of the most productive people on earth. But, I couldn’t do that. There are people far more productive, getting more done and you’ll know this as well, they just seem to be able to get through more. How are they even doing this? How do they keep up? Or you may be one of these people and people just can’t touch you.
Well, what’s the real secret? Well, the fact is, there isn’t a secret, it’s just that we’ve been focusing on the wrong thing. So it’s not about managing your time. First of all, you can’t manage time because time’s going to go on no matter what. You don’t have any control over that. You can structure your day a bit better but that won’t make the real difference.
What’s going to make the critical difference is the amount of energy you have. If you want to get things done, how do you really achieve more and get more done of the things that really matter is you’ve got to manage your energy. Because if I gave you three weeks to do that project that you’re working on, that big thing that’s going to make the difference and remove distractions and get it all out of the way, but you’ve got no energy, then it doesn’t matter if I give you three weeks or three months, you’re too tired and you’ve not going to get it done. Where as, if you’ve got energy and you’ve cultivated that sense of energy and vibrancy and you wake up in the morning and you just wake up excited for the day ahead, then we could give you three hours and you’ll get through so much more of that project. You might get it done in three days, who knows, because energy is the real thing. You’ll notice that when you don’t have a good night sleep, it’s so much harder to refocus and you don’t even know how distracted you got. You know, you’ll be working on a project then you’ll just see something pop up in your news feed, then you’ll click on it, then all of a sudden you wake up three hours later, “Where was I? What’s going on?” You’ve been in browser blackout, you’ve been searching the internet, because once we’re tired, and once we don’t have the level of energy, it becomes much more difficult for us to regain our focus and that takes away from what we are getting done and focusing on the important things. Because you can always get things done but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re the things that really need to be done.
So, if energy’s the thing, then what do you do? Well, the first thing is, before you change anything, you always have to become aware of it. So the first thing you want to do is just start to journal and notice what affects your energy. So either at lunchtime, or at the end of each day, just take ten minutes and write down ‘deposits;’ what added to your energy bank account and on the other side ‘withdrawals.’ And just by doing that alone and making the list, and noticing, “Oh yeah, when I went for lunch with my friend that gave me a boost, that was nice hearing about that.” Or, “That argument I had with my partner, that was tough, that drained quite a bit of energy for me.” And just notice how many you’ve got on each side. That will help you in terms of starting to manage your own energy and by doing that, you will get more done and just by doing that, you’ll feel more alive and vibrant and people will notice the difference.
So I encourage you to share this with them, because if we all had more energy, we’d all have more focus on the things we want to do and that would leave the things that would make a real difference, not only in your life, but in the life of your family and those around us doing the really meaningful, important things to us. But that all requires energy, it’s hard work doing things and achieving things is not easy, and these people that tell you, “Instant success overnight” or “Get rich quick” scheme then it’s not the truth and we should be celebrating the hard work because that’s what makes it meaningful and that’s what makes it unique to people who do push through, who do decide to take care of their energy and do achieve the things that really do make a difference and create the life you want. And if you do that, that’s how you can be brilliant every day.

I hate when I get good advice from bad people. Mostly I hate that this horrendous person I went to high school will never leave my memory for more than three days at a time.
I want you to understand who this guy was. He was a long haired guitar player with big plans to be famous, regardless of the fact that he couldn’t even get a band together. I was once put in a group with him for a project which he decided should be rebellion themed. Obviously all the other kids in the group were way on board with that. Then I was forced to take part in a scene where a group of students built up a wall between themselves and an overbearing teacher while Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” played. It is my greatest shame. I’m also fairly positive that he ended that scene with a guitar solo.
So, you get it. This guy was awful. However, he did have great hair. One day it was particularly shiny. Like, straight out of a shampoo commercial shiny. Finally someone asked what he did to get it so luminous and he shared his secret. He always rinsedd his hair with cold water after conditioning and something about that is just straight up magic. Ever since that day, almost 10 years ago, I have rinsed my hair with cold water and thought of him. I wonder how his music career is going, if he ever thinks of me, if he has any new hair care tips. I hate him for it. I hate him so goddamn much.
i’ll be 19 in a week and i feel very stressed about being older and failing to adult and growing up
it’s hard to have all of my friends turn the age that i am 2 or 3 years before i do because all they talk about is how young i am and i can’t feel and express things about getting older because i’m still so young in comparison
people be like ‘you’re only 18 you have so much time’ but i don’t have that luxury because i graduate in a year and i have to find something to do regardless of the fact that i’ll only be 20 like my life doesn’t magically float along until i catch up to you because wow surprise i’ll always be three years younger even if we’re at the same life stage
kinda glad my birthday is on a monday so i can just go to class and not have to worry about friends much
In Bootleggers, is Eren's low alcohol due to him being a werewolf? Or is he destined to be a lightweight regardless?
It’s the werewolf thing.
You see while he isn’t COMPLETELY bound by canine rules, the fact lycanthropy alters brain chemistry and biology tends to fuck with the body a little bit. Too much chocolate leads to sickness, alcohol can fuck them up easier, certain foods have to be avoided because while they aren’t life threatening the resulting stomachaches aren’t pleasant-
Eren’s size also has something to do with it. Mike can handle a lot more than Eren can because he’s a big strong wolf with extra weight. Eren spent his first three years after being turned withering away because he didn’t have a proper diet. By the time Levi brought Eren and Mikasa to the Smith house Eren didn’t actually have enough energy to shift back into being a human, and was carried in as an underweight wolf pup.
By now Eren’s gained the weight back, but he’s still a wiry little thing and he’s the shortest of the ot3. Factoring all that in PLUS his age (20), he’s fuckin doomed when he sets foot in a bar.
So if you’ve studied language at all you’ve probably come across the fact that you can say people are doing things in the first, second and third person; I see, you see, he sees. This can also be pluralized; we see, you (all) see, they see. In English the second person is actually the same regardless of how many people there are it’s kinda lame.
This is relatively common, but I wonder if there are any languages out there where instead of just pluralizing in the form of, “two or more,” there is a special case for only two people and a case for three or more. This would in theory look something like I’ve got under the read more:
Islands diving spot aroundGili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan are
more then 15 different dive spots and there are new reefs being explored
all the time. Regardless of where you stay or the dive school you
choose, you will have access all the dive sites around the Gili Islands.
In fact all the dive sites can be easily reached by any of the three
islands and all diving schools offer dives to all locations.
