repeating-this-post-because-of-reasons

this new meme reminds me of those 2010-2011 facebook posts where you tagged your friends based on what character they where most like, we’ve pretty much come full circle and if anyone has a comprehensive list of facebook memes (for whatever reason) from that point on they can probably track the New Memes that will appear on tumblr for the next five years and become the Meme Master, because we as a human race are doomed to repeat our past mistakes

How I studied for my A-levels

A long overdue post for the anon who asked a few days ago! This post will mainly be about how I revised for Biology and Chemistry because revising for German was very different. It also all applies to my A2-year because I was really demotivated during my ASes and crammed everything – the reason I worked so hard for A2 was because I was NOT repeating the stress of my AS year under any circumstances whatsoever.

1.       Revise for your mocks

It was tedious but so worth it – by revising for my mocks I had revised half the content for summer exams at least once and it really did make it easier to revise for the real things. It also meant that by the time the ‘real’ revision period rolled round, half of my revision notes were done.

2.       Start early

A-levels in general, and for me Biology in particular, were really content heavy with information you just had to know – by starting early you’ll be able to go over each topic several times before the exam and this cements it in your head far better than any panicked cramming the night before. I started making revision notes after February half-term and made sure to give myself a complete week’s break that half-term – it’s really worth it because you go into revision season well rested, as opposed to half-assing revision in the holidays and during term time.

3.       Use your free periods

Either dedicate them to trying to get the bulk of your homework done or dedicate them to revising and then doing homework at home. Either way, if you use them productively it will free up a lot of time for revision. That being said, nobody is perfect and I’ve definitely spent the occasional free sitting in the common room drinking coffee and moaning about work (@yolo-unlessyouareacat I’m looking at you here) – but that’s okay too! You need a break.

4.       Make a timetable

I think my saving grace at A-level was my timetable – if it’s well planned out it saves a lot of stress, both overall and each day. I only made a timetable for the Easter holidays and for study leave because it’s so hard to plan revision when you’re still going to lessons.

I blocked out time each day for when I would revise and when I’d take a break and these times were pretty much the same every day because routine helped me. Each revision session would have a subject and a specific topic assigned so I wasn’t just aimlessly revising random things. It also meant I knew exactly when I’d have revised everything once so it stopped the fear of not being able to revise everything in time.

For the few weeks after Easter but before study leave, I made a checklist of what I wanted to do to revise in each subject by study leave. Whenever I had finished my homework or had nothing to do in a free, I just worked my way through that list. 

5.       Actual revision strategies

It’s generally accepted that revising a topic 3 times is a good way to make sure it sticks – based on that step 1 of revising was to make summarised notes on the topic, step 2 was to do the ‘exam-style’ questions in the textbook on that topic and step 3 was to do all the past paper questions on that topic. 

Personally, I found it easier to do all of the past paper questions for a specific topic at the same time because it meant I could see the patterns in what was asked and it was easier to see what got you marks for that topic.

Once all of that was done, if I still had time before the exam I’d re-revise topics by doing questions I’d found online (message me if you’d like links), doing past papers from the old specification, making mind maps on a topic, using my revision notes to make up questions and then trying to answer them without looking at notes. I also have a whiteboard in my bedroom at home and so I’d use that to practise organic mechanisms and write equations (for Chemistry) and to draw out and explain concepts like the respiration, photosynthesis and muscle function (for Biology).

I think the reason my revision worked was that by the time the exam came around I had gone over every topic quite a few times and for me, personally, that’s what made it stick. What makes things stick for some people is different than for others - you could try making flashcards, recording yourself talk about a subject and listening back, or teaching a topic to a friend. 

I hope you’ve found this helpful! I also think that quite a few of these ideas are applicable to GCSEs. If you want any more tips on more details on what I did or what resources I used, please feel free to message me, I would be more than happy to help :)

Hey Guys! I hope you enjoy this fic! Thanks to @ililypop for the bit of dance info! Also it is mostly in Rae’s pov until the very end and it switches, I wont say to who’s though ;)

anonymous asked:

Okay, so, that other anon went a little OTT with the whole "I hope you get raped one day" thing and that's not okay, so I'm apologising on their behalf, but I've seen a bunch of Reylo's call Finn things like "coal boy" and many other slurs and I've also seen Reylo's complain about how there are "too many gay ships" or that they're "uncomfortable with all the same sex ships in fandoms" or some bull like that so I'd say those terms aren't just casually being thrown around for no good reason

Hi there, thank you for the apology, I do appreciate it.

I’ve just answered an ask with a similar vein of questioning, so I’ll try not to repeat myself!

I haven’t personally seen these posts. I’m not denying their existence but because I haven’t read these for myself I can’t explore the content and form an opinion on it. But I will say basically what I said to the last question I answered. There are a few bad eggs within every part of the fandom, including within the Reylo shippers. Some people resort to immature and crude reasoning to validate their ship, and that’s inevitable. But if you look at the Reylo shippers as a whole and read the often long and well thought out metas they produce, then you’ll see that no true shippers reasoning is as simple and rotten as ‘we want Kylo because Finn’s black’ or 'there’s too many gay ships’. There are a multitude of thematics and symbolism that we adore about the ship, and I only explore a few of these things in my defence of reylo post. And if you look in the tag there are hundreds more, often a lot more detailed and well written than my own.

You shouldn’t look at these people who post crude racial slurs as indicative of the whole group, because it’s inaccurate. Just in the same way that I can’t look at every anti like the one who sent me that anon wishing for me to be assaulted. I know not every anti is like that, most are quite nice, but those who send anons or post racist slurs and insults from both sides are immature, callous and crude and they don’t deserve mine or anyone else’s time. I’d ask you to see that 99% of Reylo shippers are not racist, not in the slightest. Just as I see that not every anti is that disgusting and cruel as the one that messaged me.

I do get upset when I see words like racist and homophobic thrown about because it brands all of us with the same paint and I find that extremely unfair. My grandfather came over from Jamaica in the 1970s to the UK and experienced a great deal of racism at the time, and then he married my white grandmother which made things worse. I’ve heard some horrific stories and I see how it still brings back awful emotional memories for him, so this argument in particular is a very personal thing to me. For people to say that I’m a racist for shipping Reylo is so insulting and so degrading because it’s quite the opposite and I’ve strived to be accepting of everyone and everything in my life because I know how rejection based on colour hurts people, I can see the evidence of it in my grandfather. These words are thrown about so easily and people not to see that it’s not a majority and as such stop branding the majority like that. It’s unfair to let so few taint the perception of so many and that’s what I want to stop.

If any of my people follow avianawareness I advise you unfollow her, or remain as you are but review her material with scrutiny. I appreciate bird knowledge being in circulation, but she sucks. 


I’m a little fired because she made her own post about this one article on parrots and ptsd which I posted about, and she’s been downright awful and aggressively ableist in the past for no reason, which lead me to get in a massive argument with her. 


I’ve compromised justice before in my life because I thought the perpetrator behind it was doing enough good that it did not matter, and in the end I made the situation worse. I’d rather not repeat that mistake. So consider me super irked.

anonymous asked:

Well I think that maybe you guys should hand the blog back to Crystal? It's too censored and people can't express their feelings freely without there being a banned topic.

I love how you immediately assume she wants to administer JRPC again.

The reason why JRPC has become too censored is because of what the community has become.  Read my reply to the previous anon here again, I’m sick of having to repeat myself. If you want me to make JRPC less censored, then sure. I honestly would love not having to read each confession word for word and delete those that don’t make the cut. Being able to post them all up would save me the hassle, and I’d honestly love for everyone to be able to express their opinions and emotions freely! But that’s only if the community improves and reaches a point where censoring isn’t necessary because honestly, the only reason why there’s a need for censorship is because of you all.

So instead of telling the administrative team to change, how about you try and get the community itself to change since it’s actually the root of the problem? Once everyone can be trusted to not need censorship, then let’s talk.

      ( awkward baby kheptin ) HEY. Stop scrolling for a second and read this, please.

      1.) If for any reason you have an issue with me, TELL ME. Don’t approach someone else and ask them to talk to me for you. What is this, the fifth grade? We are all adults (or near adults) so there is no reason we cannot act and talk like adults. Involving other people creates unnecessary drama and that is not what I’m about. In fact, writing this posting alone pisses me off and makes me so grouchy that I don’t want to touch this or any of my blogs.

       2.) Before you accuse anyone of anything, ESPECIALLY ART THIEVERY, you better read ALL of that blog’s information. A lot of role players have tabs and flags and banners on their blogs to keep the information on their blog previews in-character. They may credit the person whose art they are using for various things in those tabs/flags/banners! They may credit in their rules! They may have a credit page! You don’t fucking know until you scower that blog top-to-bottom. You can damage someone’s reputation with false information if you do not.

I REPEAT: DON’T DAMAGE SOMEONE’S REPUTATION BECAUSE YOU WERE TOO LAZY TO LOOK AT READILY AVAILABLE DISCLAIMERS

anonymous asked:

Can you give me a reason to study for finals? They're on Tuesday-Thursday, and I'm stuck listening to Happy Feet's Under Pressure on repeat and crying because f all the feels in that scene. OH AND I LOVE YOUR POSTS, makes me dwell on tumblr longer :)

well….. i have midterms coming up and im high key stressing. i just kinda… force myself to try and enjoy the material im learning. and give myself little rewards for when i finish sections (like watching a music video or eating a piece of chocolate). i dont think it’s enough for me to give you a reason though, you have to find it within yourself! if you can, try studying while listening to the happy feet soundtrack? :O 

A rant about my ‘I AM NICOLE | TELL ME WHO YOU ARE’ video

Am I being fake about what I put out online? No.

Am I acting before/planning ahead what I put out online? Never.

Am I confused and a bit all over the place when I upload videos online? Of course. It’s expected when you literally just play, watch once over or not and just hit post.

The videos for example, I hear people are becoming concerned about the ‘Who Am I’ video where I essentially repeat “I am Nicole and I like/love dancing. I am Nicole and I like reading. I am Nicole and I like….. etc” essentially it’s just me talking to a camera, repeating a basic line over and over again, whilst listing a lot of things that I like as a reminder to myself of WHO I AM when I feel like I have zero idea of who I am. 

I did it for two reasons. Firstly, because it’s a coping mechanism because, like I explained above - sometimes I will have zero idea of who I am which can include anything from activities that I like to to, to my opinions. I thought it’d be good for a grounding technique because I know that most people with Emotional Unstable Personality Disorder (a type of BPD) have zero idea of who they are, and because of abuse, I also have no idea of who I am when it comes to decisions, opinions, etc. 

Anyway, someone I know showed it to my family and they told that I was wrong to post it because I look like I am on the verge of having a break down and it won’t help me in case SW’s see it and will be used against me when I’m trying to get my son back. They also said that I’m lying, not telling and a bunch of other hurtful things.
I’ve had people come to me and tell me that the video and others are inspiring. That they’re useful for learning (about them or other people/issues). That this video in particular was actually kind of popular within the Youtube community.

I have no problem with it, it’s just a harmless, no practice before video, where I slowly begin to ‘know more’ about me. Does that make sense? Was it bad that I posted it online? Is it bad that I post online vlogging videos where I talk openly about everything going on?

It’s kind of ended up becoming a healthy release thing for me, like writing journals expect this is better because you can see my facial expressions…  aka you can tell when I’m trying to make sense of it all, or that I genuinely feel that way good or bad. I don’t post all of them online just because some are super word-wise messy. Idk, help. I really thought I was doing the right, inspiring, helping, kinda thing but now I’m not so sure… 

This Is Why A Night Of Heavy Drinking Is So Bad For Your Skin

It’s not those late-night cheese fries that give your face that undeniable gray, tired appearance the morning after a night out on the town.


Nope. Usually, the reason you wake up haggard-looking after having a couple of drinks is because you’re dehydrated and under-rested.

And while you can probably pull off being hungover for one torturous day, the long-term effects associated with repeated hangovers can do major damage to your skin. 


“Alcohol causes dehydration,” Dr. Amy Wechsler, a board-certified dermatologist and psychiatrist in Manhattan told The Huffington Post. “It dehydrates and dries the skin out, and skin isn’t as plump.” Dehydrated skin often feels tight and looks flaky, effects that dramatize the appearance of fine lines. Skin looseness, redness and itching can also take hold on your face. Not pretty.





Maybe more damaging than dehydration, however, are the effects that too little sleep has on the skin, Wechsler said. “This is not a direct side effect of alcohol, but it’s a common secondary side effect.”


Many think a nightcap guarantees a solid night of zzz’s, but as it turns out, the exact opposite is true. While alcohol promotes fatigue that could help your head hit the pillow faster, the quality of sleep you experience on a belly full of booze is not so good. An abundance of research suggests that alcohol encourages a disturbed sleep, which leads to groggy mornings and poor concentration that lasts all day


What does this all have to do with your skin? “During sleep is when our cortisol level is lowest,” said Wechsler. Skin has the opportunity to repair itself at nighttime, when you’re not busy putting it through the trauma of your daily commute and dinners at greasy Chinese food restaurants.


When you’re not getting healthy sleep, cortisol (the stress hormone) is still surging, she said. When this happens, the skin becomes inflamed, breaking down the skin’s collagen, which is meant to keep the skin plump, firm and fresh-looking. As a result, fine lines and thin, dry skin are formed. 


If you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to be able to enjoy happy hour without compromising your appearance, consider taking some of the simple preventative measures we’ve outlined below. Let’s raise a glass (of water) to healthier skin from here on out.


1. Alternate booze with water. 





“Drink a full glass of water for every alcoholic drink you have,” Weschler prescribes. If you alternative between the two, the water will keep you hydrated and also prevent you from downing more gin and tonics than you soberly planned. 


2. Prioritize sleep.





This one’s a biggy. Running on poor quality sleep isn’t just bad for your skin: It negatively impacts virtually every aspect of your life. Want to be happier? Get quality sleep. Want to perform better at work? Commit to a healthy 7 to 8 hours under the covers. Feel like you might sucker-punch your best friend? A nap is in order.


“In America we think of sleep as a luxury instead of a necessity,” Weschler said. “Everyone’s burning a candle at both ends and sleep is the first to go. It’s really bad for health – mental and physical.” Prioritizing sleep can prevent everything from wrinkles to illogical shouting matches, so there’s definitely good reason to put sleep at the top of your to-do list. If you’re looking for ways to sleep better, check out these 37 science-backed tips


3. Exercise.





A sweat-inducing workout can increase the circulation in your skin, Weschler said, giving you a nice rosy glow. The escalated blood flow also helps to flush debris out of your system


Better yet, an endorphin-fueling workout could help negate those lousy emotional feelings that come with a hangover. Just make sure not to over-do it; if you’re hungover, you’re dehydrated, so you’ll need to take it easy and keep a water bottle close.


4. Wash your face.





First, you’ll want to clean off the sweat that came from the circulation-boosting workout. Experts recommend washing your face as soon as you can post-sweat session to prevent clogged pores and acne. 


A cleansing routine is just as important after a night of table dancing watching “The Bachelor” with your friends and a couple glasses of wine. As Weschler mentioned, the skin does a lot of self-repair and rejuvenation while you sleep. If you don’t give it a clean slate to start with, it’ll increase your risk for breakouts, wrinkles and aging skin.

Week 9 - Project 2 “Anatomy of Architecture” Sub-theme “The Body” - (further rejected? images)

I’ve also decided to post the other versions I created for the image I posted in the previous post, to record my experimentation. 

Reflection:  I like the first one in the previous post, because of the shape, however the others. which are shown here,had a nice explosive effect in the sky which fits in better with the ‘blonde bombshell’ idea.  In the first image here, just not sure about the colour of the main building and in the second image, not sure about the shape. The 3rd image is an alternative possibility perhaps but the feature building itself is somewhat less dynamic?  I did the post-editing sky effects in Nik Collection, but couldn’t repeat that efect in the chosen image, for some reason. 

to whoever is sending me these anon message about Ben…I get it, please, stop repeating yourself over and over with what you are saying because it’s already burned in my mind. there is a reason why I didn’t and don’t answer to any of those six message publicly and I really don’t want to disable anon messages because of one person who is slowly going on my nerves :’D 

anonymous asked:

People are passionate about this because you started a fight for no reason other to appear intellectually superior. There was literally nothing inflammatory about the post and yet you decided to hop on a soap box and hide behind $5 words. You can have your opinions, you can believe you're right all you want, but you are still a snob who refuses to understand simple human interactions and consequences of words. Repeating that you are right and are behaving like a nice person doesn't make it so.

Believe it or not I did find the original post upsetting, and responded out of that reaction. So it was not a fight for nothing to me. I have posted seemingly harmless things to my own tumblr and gotten heatwaves of hysteria and rage- if you can’t handle one person with a negative response then you should reconsider posting things in the first place, or just ignore it.
As for being perceived as a snob, I’m not going to dumb myself down just because I’m on tumblr. I responded to questions sincerely, and all anyone could do was throw out accusations and untrue assumptions about me. Every person who responded far exceeded any condescension or offensive things I had said to begin with. The cumulative experience from everyone’s “passion” was intellect lacking, and blind rage overflowing.

Post on ‘Sayonara, Jahiliyyah’ will be posted later, I promise! (In shaa Allah.) Life post A Level isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. The pressure of getting employed when you’re only 17/ impending results/ getting employed/ attachment applications/ UCAS is getting to me. And yes, getting employed is repeated for a reason. #icnoAllah

ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ لَمْ يَكُ مُغَيِّرًا نِعْمَةً أَنْعَمَهَا عَلَىٰ قَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ ۙ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

That is because Allah would not change a favor which He had bestowed upon a people until they change what is within themselves. And indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing. // Al-Anfal
