do you have any resources on amnesia due to head trauma?
Sure do. It is important to note that Amnesia like you see it on TV or in the movies is not an accurate description of Amnesia in reality–these stories are often over-dramatized for the sake of plot and generally leave out many of the co-existing symptoms of amnesia and head trauma. In this case, research from real medical documents will be your best bet. Here are some resources I hope will help:
PDFescape // PDF editor. Can edit files online, directly in browser or can download Windows program.
Pocket [also on Android and iOS] // Lets you save all your bookmarks in one place. Uses a tagging system to keep track of bookmarks. Automatically filters bookmarks by article, video, images. Recommend for those of us who have multiple platforms to work on (ex, I own Apple, Android and Windows products), easy access to bookmarks if tablets/phones have trouble running Chrome or similar web browsers, and for bookmarks that can fall into multiple categories.
[also on Android and iOS]
// Syncs devices in real-time. Send items from your computer to phone and vice versa. No compatibility between iPhones to Windows for text messages (assuming same goes for Android/Mac). Most effective for those who use one singular platform (if your computer + phone are both by Apple, and if you own an Android + Windows).
Pixel Thoughts // 1 minute meditation website. Watch your worries shrink, then float away (literally).
[also on Android and iOS]
// Simple, yet very effective. Tracks Pomodoros for those who use the Pomodoro technique. Includes to-do list. Charts completed pomodoros and shows graphs when pomodoros take place.
TitanPad// Multiple people working on one document simultaneously (pretty much same as Google Docs).
[also on Android and iOS] // Treat habits like leveling up in a video game.
Prioritab // Very simple interface. Shows daily, weekly and monthly to-do lists. Replaces the new tab page.
Overtask // Organize and save tabs into folders, which then can be opened at any time as needed without losing those tabs. Uses a tagging system, priority ranking and has a deadline alert feature. Recommended for when multiple projects are coming up and need to keep track of different websites for different things, or to group large amounts tabs into different sections. Replaces the new tab page.
Momentum// Shows weather, photography background, quote, goal for the day and has a to-do list feature. Replaces the new tab page.
Be Limitless // Photography background, goal for the day, a notepad feature with countdown and reminders. Shows how much time is spent on certain types of websites (shopping, social, etc) and most visited sites. Replaces the new tab page.
Cool Clock // Includes stopwatch, alarm and timer functions straight in your browser. Hourly pop-up alerts. Has to-do list function. Can be synced to Google Calendar. Can replace the new tab page.
Polar Clock // Simple, futuristic-looking clock. Shows the year by month, day, hours, minutes, seconds etc. Colors are customizable. Replaces the new tab page.
Black Menu for Google // At the click of a button, all (and I mean all, even the obscure ones no one knows about) of Google’s websites are a click away. This includes everything from YouTube, Gmail, Drive, Maps, etc.
Hola Better Internet [also on Play Store, App store. Firefox maybe?] // Free VPN proxy service. May cause security issues, use at your own discretion.
Here is what I have so far. Most of the spells are ones I already have on my blog, but I want to add as many more as I can find on Tumblr. (Yeah, I’m crazy.) The sigils aren’t anywhere close to being done yet either; I forgot about them until just a few minutes ago tbh… But yeah, here you go, have fun. :D
sequel to this post, as requested!!
I usually fall asleep between midnight and 1am, and wake up naturally between 6 and 7.
getting up early is way easier when you’ve gotten enough sleep the night before, so hopefully these tips will be helpful as school gets back in session:) these are vaguely listed in most-to-least-effective order, but ymmv!
HOW TO GET YOUR ASS INTO BED AND KNOCK OUT IN UNDER 1 HOUR
turn off your phone. or, like, put it across the room (esp. useful if you use it as your morning alarm; you’ll have to get out of bed to turn it off). this is so hard, okay, it’s the one I never manage to do because tumblr!! the entire internet!! just waiting for my glazed-over 4am eyeballs! don’t do it. delete the app and reinstall it in the morning if you have to.
shower at night. you will feel like a clean, toasty cinnamon roll when you get into bed and the warm water will help your muscles relax. bonus points if you drink a glass of water or a mug of decaf tea and use a nice body lotion right after.
get some mood lighting. this is a little absurd but I promise it helps, particuarly if you’re living in dorms with overhead fluorescent lights. a little while before you start getting ready for bed, switch your lighting to something dimmer and warmer - christmas lights, a candle (if your res hall allows it), a small bedside lamp.
asmr. here’s the wikipedia page if you don’t know what this is; here’s my favorite channel. even if you don’t experience tingles, the videos can still be insanely relaxing. they’re like knockout drugs. WARNING: this is a dangerous one bc it means your phone’s in bed with you the whole time!! dim the screen all the way, fullscreen the video, and use headphones; occasionally I’ll actually put it face-down and just listen to the audio.
bedtime yoga. also very relaxing! if you’ve ever fallen asleep during shavasana you’ll know how easy it is to go from gentle yoga to total unconsciousness. herearesomevideos to get you started.
if you’re going to read in bed, read something boring. no murder mysteries. find a hardcopy book that you like but that doesn’t necessarily get your heart racing. i’m working on the aeneid right now. giving your brain something to focus on that isn’t worrying about the next day or reliving the one you just had can help it switch off a little easier.
okay that’s it! final piece of advice: don’t get too hung up on this. sometimes I get so stressed about needing to get to sleep early that I keep myself awake. it’ll be ok!! once you get into the habit your sleep cycle will naturally shift, and you’ll get sleepy earlier at night and be more awake in the mornings. good luck sunflowers!!
Unfortunately for these little, complicated birds they’ve become this year’s newest trend. Thousands of people worldwide have begun purchasing these adorable little birds due to trending videos which usually display a regurgitating or aggressive parrotlet. Sadly, very little people who bring them home actually know what it takes to care for them properly to allow them to thrive. Since there’s no way I could possibly stop everyone from impulse buying these birds the least I can do is explain the reality behind owning one in the hopes that someone will either think twice or be a little more prepared for avian ownership.
Read through the material and gain a basic understanding of what’s in front of you. Make sure you’re actively reading by annotating and asking yourself questions about what you’re reading. Also look at the questions if there is some in the textbook. This way you’ll know what you’re going to be writing!
Go back over what you’ve read and highlight or mark the most important pieces of information. Make sure you’re not over-highlighting! Only highlight words or sentances, not whole paragraphs!
Summarise what is most important, the keywords, what you find difficult, what you’ll need to know. Filter what you do and don’t need. Here’s an example:
What you need.
Explanation of keywords
You don’t need to do this on paper, just do it in your head so you know how you’re going to start when you begin to write!
Create a list of keywords, all the concepts and critical data. Write brief and concise explanations to each keyword. It’s also good to write a brief summary of the whole chapter. This will help to remind you of the context when you go to revise.
Read over the keywords list to make sure you’ve included everything needed. It’s also a good idea to try testing youself on the keywords and their explanations.
I have decided to move the sigils-only posts to a separate list, as a way to save space and prevent clutter. I will try and keep it updated fairly often, but for now it is still in my drafts. I will publish it when I feel it’s ready for a first posting, and will provide a link to it on this post for easy access.
This is still nowhere near completion. This is probably around 15 hours of work so far, maybe even more. Please don’t copy-paste this to your own blog or posts, reblog this post and keep the source. I am doing this in my free time, without any sort of recompense, to help out you guys and provide a HUGE resource for spells of all kinds. Please respect myself and this post by reblogging and not reposting / copying it.
* If you see any of your own spells on here and you would like them removed, please inform me and I will delete them immediately for the next update.
** Please also inform me of any spelling mistakes or broken links.
dear people who make fallout & post apocalyptic OCs
I have a post-apocalyptic fashion pinterest board of over 2000+ images that can be a resource for writers, artists, or anyone else who might need inspiration.Its great for designing outfits, planning characters, or getting loose ideas.
The hand-picked photos are of larp costumes, dark & grungy fashion, magazine editorials, crust-punks, rioters, fighters in war-torn countries, and anything else that might look post apocalyptic.
I hope it can be a good resource, I’ve been slowly building up the board for a couple of years now, and it’s been fun for me! For anyone who might me interested,here is the link.
