right when i was starting to understand everything

I’m tired.” she said. “I’m tired of pretending to feel empty about everything. I’m tired of laughing at people when they assumed that I don’t feel anything at all. Because of course, I feel something. I almost feel everything that it suffocates my whole being. I feel it when someone slowly losing interest in me as if they were clouds—fading in the sky during warm summer days. As if they were colors melting their brightest shades. I feel my heart breaking when someone continuously pointing out my mistakes that it erased all the right things I’ve ever done in my whole life. As if everything went blank, and I need to start doing something again that will make them proud. I feel people’s words touching what’s deep within me. Especially when they were the people who were important to me. Especially when they were the people who I always expected to understand the real me.” she looked down at her hands catching her breath heavily. She wasn’t used on opening up her heart to someone. She wasn’t used on telling everything that’s on her mind. Yet she knew, this was the best thing she needed to do. That this can ease the burdens she’s been lifting up for too long. She sighed slowly, then she said, “I just want you to know, that even if people tried to pretend that there’s a black hole inside of them, they will always end up touching their chests and feel their heart beating.

Things NOT To Do When Studying

I was going through some old papers from freshman year and I was thinking about what I was doing wrong when I didn’t achieve the grades I wanted, even though I got As in my classes. What things could I have done better to get a 100 instead of a 96? I don’t ask myself this so much as to be a perfectionist (even though I am one). I ask myself these questions because: 1) I must not have had a completely solid understanding of the material if I couldn’t get a 100 on it. 2) Maybe my less-than-stellar test-taking skills got in the way. 3) I’m a tutor, so I want to be sure I understand everything thoroughly enough to help others with the material.

I may add to this later, so you can always check out the original post here. As always, feel free to comment or message me if you want to add something to this list!

General:

  • Don’t simply read over your notes to study. It doesn’t work. You might pick up pieces here and there or even memorize certain things verbatim, but reading something 20 times is very inefficient. Your brain learns by making connections, so if you’re only straight reading the material you’re not making extra connections. You’re much better off going through your notes to make your own questions and quizzing yourself on them, marking down connections as you read (either in the margin or by literally connecting them in the text with a pen), or creating a study sheet (whether in text format or a mind map).
  • Don’t simply highlight, either. While there is a proper way to highlight, most people I see using a highlighter are doing it wrong. If you’re the person who highlights 90% of the paragraph, I’m talking about you. Okay, so highlighting is physically more active than glancing over your notes 20 times, but it’s about equally as effective if you’re highlighting everything. I recommend instead highlighting (or marking with eraseable pencil) things you want to go back to later. But, again, highlighting and reading alone is not useful. Go back to your highlighted parts to reread something that was hard to understand the first time, a topic you want to revisit to make a review sheet, etc. Whatever you use it for, make sure the purpose is to quickly find information later, not simply so you can read those things again. Try making a study sheet, in your own words, based off of your highlighting.
  • Don’t forget to write things down. And I don’t mean just in your planner when you have homework or papers due. This isn’t so much about getting absolutely everything down in terms of notes, either, I have a separate post regarding that. But in class you should always write down questions you have and the answer.  If you don’t get a chance to ask during class, ask ASAP whether it’s directly to your teacher or asking a classmate. If it’s that important, do some research on it, too. Also, make sure you write down information on due dates or paper topics. You probably already do that, but I would recommend having a piece of paper with you every day where you can write anything important down like dates and to-dos to organize all in one shot. If you simply write down “paper due” in a block in your planner before rushing to the next you may not see that reminder until close to the due date. I like to take all of the information on the piece of paper (which also has my day planned out and a to-do list) right when I get up in the morning so I’m prepared for the day and don’t forget anything.

What I Did Wrong:

  • Don’t take it easy at the start of the semester. To be perfectly honest, I’ve pretty much always done that, but my freshman year of college it wasn’t a huge deal since I pretty much already took those classes. Sophomore year, however, everything was new, so memorization and understanding didn’t come quite as easily. The harder your classes are, the more essential this is, especially if you actually want to sleep during finals week. The best thing you can do is start doing work before the semester even starts if you have a syllabus handy, or even just looking through your books to see what’s ahead. While everyone else is doing fun things the night of that first day, make sure you get some work done first before you have your fun. This sets the tone for the rest of the semester and gets you into the habit of working. Don’t let yourself get behind! It’s easier to stay ahead than it is to struggle catching up.
  • Don’t leave your notes to rot after class. Meaning, do something with them right after class! … or at least ASAP. Mark them up, edit them, rework them, copy or type them (if your handwriting sucks like me), or, best of all, write a short summary. Take the several pages of notes you have and condense them into one or two paragraphs. Don’t worry about the details, just make sure you’re hitting on the key points. As a bonus, you can type up some questions based off of your notes to save for later studying (details are allowed here). Everything will be fresh, making this a much easier process than if you did it right before the test. At the end of the week, make a summary of your summaries and quiz yourself on the questions you made. You’ll probably want to use those questions again, so try to reword them or even combine them into bigger questions that cover many topics. That way you’re being active with the material and will actually understand what you’re answering as opposed to parroting.
  • Don’t make study sheets by copying off of something else. Yes, I made this mistake. I wasn’t copying initially, but rather, using a review book as a reference to make study sheets. However, the more I was pressed for time the less I started putting things into my own words. Now, this wasn’t a big deal in terms of legality, since I kept them to myself, but it didn’t turn out to be all that helpful in the end. If you want to make study sheets, you could either take concepts you’ve been learning and put them together in different ways or make a summary in your own words. I recommend both, but whatever you do, make sure you’re actually creating something new or else you’re not going to remember it. For example, in organic chemistry I took the reactions and grouped them in different ways (by subtstrate, reactants, products, etc.) as a reference while studying. The act of sorting and looking through the reactions in order to make the sheets helped me remember them, then I had the sheets to look at while doing practice to help me memorize them further.
  • Don’t save the bulk of lab work for after the lab and don’t wait to write your report. By this I’m referring to the post-lab report. Spend the extra time while prepping your pre-lab materials to start your report! You’re expected to know the theory behind your labs before you perform them, so writing the introduction to your report should not be a problem. If it is, then you’ll be glad you took the time to understand the lab before you tried actually doing it. By doing this you may also find that you have questions that can be answered by the professor before you get confused in the middle of a procedure. Also make sure you have data tables prepared (not just in your notebook, but in the report file to fill in after) and anything else you’ll need to take down data. Once the lab is finished do the report immediately. Everything you did will be fresh and you’ll be glad you finished it well ahead of the deadline. At this point you can show your lab to your professor and get any corrections fixed so you’re ashooin’ for an A!
  • Don’t try to write a paper in one shot. I understand if you feel like your papers flow better if you do it all in one shot, but at least make sure you plan it out thoroughly ahead of time before you actually write it all out. But even then, you will likely benefit from splitting your paper into chunks to tackle one day at a time. If you have a research paper that’s double-digit pages then you’ll be forced to do that anyway, but be sure you’re splitting up the work for small papers, as well. It may not seem like a big deal to do a short paper in one day, but if you end up having other assignments or tests due around the same time it might up your stress if you’re crunched for time trying to finish that “insignificant” paper while juggling a few other assignments as well as some test prep.

Advice Suggested By Others:

  • Don’t listen to distracting music while studying. To some degree, the types of music that are considered “distracting” vary when it comes to the subject you’re studying and personal preference. However, the general rule of thumb is that you avoid any sort of music with lyrics if you’re studying a subject that involves language. Art, math, and certain sciences are an exception if you’re working with pictures or numbers, since language usually doesn’t interfere with those things in the brain. But if you’re reading anything, even if it’s worded directions to a math or science problem, lyrics will probably be distracting. Some people suggest that listening to new music with lyrics is okay because you won’t be tempted to sing along with something you don’t know while others get distracted by hearing any type of language. Again, it’s truly up to you, but genres such as classical, jazz, and nature sounds are usually recommended. Heck, if you’re a musician and get distracted by any type of music, silence or brown noise may be the better option for you. (Suggested by aslongasitsfiction)
  • Don’t study in bed. Scientific studies have shown that doing anything in your bed that isn’t sleep or sex-related affects your ability to fall asleep in your bed. When your brain primarily associates your bed with sleep, it’s much easier to fall asleep. But having trouble sleeping in your bed isn’t the only part of the problem. While studying in your bed is really comfy, you’re also more likely to fall asleep if the association with sleep is strong enough. It’s generally recommended that you don’t even study in the same room as your bed, but as college students this may not be possible if you want to use your desk. So if you don’t want to make the trek out to a more secluded study space, at least try to make sure your desk doesn’t have your bed in view. Because let’s be honest, if you’re exhausted, simply seeing your bed might be enough to make you nod off. (Suggested by rare-footage and ane-mia)
  • Don’t go on tumblr. Okay, this may seem obvious, but sometimes a reminder is all you need to get off your computer! I suppose it’s better that you’re looking up information to help you study, but I think we both know what the better choice would be. (Suggested by oneofakindgizibe)
  • Don’t study in a place you can’t focus just because your friends are there. Us humans are social animals. We like being around other people. But this can cause you problems if you’re trying to study. Unless you’re in a productive study group, make sure you separate study time and social time. You’re probably more likely to gravitate towards fun, social things over studying, so make sure studying is a priority and you get it done before seeing your friends. If you have a roommate or two, then your dorm room is probably not the right place to study. Find a few of your focus hotspots and go there for your study time. (Suggested by fitspoforever)
  • Don’t forget the little things you know you’ll need. This includes but is not limited to things such as chargers, books, snacks, and water. You don’t want to be in-the-zone and all of the sudden realize you need to run back to your dorm room to get a book. And then 10 minutes later realize you’re hungry and need to run to the cafeteria. If you don’t already have certain things that are always in your bag, simply keep a list of things you generally need to bring with you, leave it as a reminder on your desk, and check it over before you hit the library. (Suggested by fitspoforever)
  • Don’t take naps while studying without setting an alarm. Or even better, avoid naps all together. If you’re like me, 15-minute naps usually turn into 2-hour events. But regardless, if you need to get some extra sleep, get the extra sleep. It’s better to take a nap when you know you need it as opposed to falling asleep on your desk unexpectedly when you have a paper you need to get done for the next day. 15-20 minutes the recommended time for a short nap, but if you need something more robust, try for 90 minutes or use sleepyti.me to figure out the right time to wake up. (Suggested by fitspoforever)
  • Don’t wear uncomfortable clothes. I personally find that “dressing for success” works really well for going to lectures and virtually everything else, but terribly if you’re hitting the library for a long study session. You’ll probably wanna look cute if you’re heading somewhere public, but just make sure you’re comfortable. Yoga pants are fine for the occasion! (Suggested by fitspoforever)
“The Tower” AKA “What the fuck is going on” Spread

Directions:

✩ Shuffle your deck
✩ When you’ve shuffled enough, pull the first card (1 in the visual) from the top and lay it down.
✩ Now, lay your deck out, upright, and find the Tower. Lay this card above card 1. 
✩ Take the three cards that were behind the Tower and lay them in positions 2, 4, and 6.
✩ Take the three cards that were in front of the Tower and lay them in positions 3, 5, and 7.

Now you read:

  1. Is this ever going to end?
  2. What started this absolute shit storm?
  3. Am I to blame?
  4. Is the worst over?
  5. What is the best way to protect myself right now?
  6. What is the lesson to be learned here?
  7. How can I regain stability in my life?

This is by far one of my favorite spreads that I’ve created. My life has been absolutely tumultuous, and I created this to try and get a better understanding of how to ride it out/when everything is gonna calm the fuck down. If this finds you in a destructive cycle of life, best of luck dear, you’re not alone.

anonymous asked:

Hello Jen! I hope this isn't a bother but would you mind giving me some advice on

Hello! I’m sure this sentence came in unfinished on accident and you were probably going to ask me something art-related. But just in case, I’m going to give you all the advice I have:

Drink water regularly ● Try watching videos of animals you’re attempting to draw; seeing them from multiple angles helps with understanding their underlying shapes and where their features sit ● Don’t jump into any body of water until you’re certain that it’s deep enough ● When feeding a horse from your hand, offer food on a flattened palm, not with your fingers ● If you’re drawing fur, don’t try to draw every strand—it’s more effective to stylize it by separating it into clumps/groups ● Don’t touch electric fences, even if your cousin keeps daring you to do it and he’s calling you a ‘wussy goblin baby’ and it hurts ● Always ask the owner before petting an unfamiliar dog ● Use your turn signal ● Buckle up ● Check your blind spots ● When starting a piece, first do a structural sketch with the basic shapes and make sure you understand how they connect—start simple, try not to jump right into the details ● Avoid hiking alone in remote areas—if you ever do hike alone, make sure someone knows the trail you will be on and when they should expect you coming back.

That’s the extent of my worldly knowledge. I’ve offered…everything I have.

that one scene is dear Evan Hansen where we all cry,,

Evan
Connor


I’m not doing this, I’m done

You can’t just stop now

There’s no way I can live with this anymore

What about my parents?

No more emails

How can you do this to them?

No more Connor project, no more orchard

After everything they’ve done for you…they need you.

need me for what, for me to keep lying to them?

That lie’s is the only thing that is keeping them together

That’s not- that’s not true.

Oh really? So they seemed like a pretty happy family when you met them?

I don’t wanna lie anymore!

What about Zoe?

Zoe said she just- she wants me.

Right.

Yes, yes- she likes me for who I am-

Except you didn’t happen to mention that everything you’ve told her, it’s all been one big fucking lie, did you? No you left that part out.

So then what.. Um.. What if I did her the truth.

She’ll hate you.

No, no, no- maybe she’d understand- Maybe everyone will understand.

Everyone will hate you

Not if I could just-not if I could just explain it

You’ll be right back to where you started

No. No, no, no, I’m done with this. stop

With no more friends, nobody, nothing. At all.

I’m ready to be done with it!

If you really believe that then why are you standing here talking to yourself? Again. You think you’re going to turn around, all of a sudden and start telling everyone the truth. You can’t even tell yourself the truth.

What are you talking about?

How’d you break your arm? How’d you break your arm, Evan?

I fell.

Really is that what happened?

Yes! I was just- I lost my grip and then I just.. I fell so..

Did you fall? Or did you let go? …you can get rid of me whenever you want. You can get rid of all of it; the Connor project, the orchard. But then all that you’re going to be left with…Is you. End of May or early June, this picture perfect afternoon we shared. Drive the winding country rode, grab a scoop at alamode and then, we’re there.

Jin ➳ Your fingers are intertwined with his, the both of you walking down the streets of the night as you suddenly stop in your tracks, face written in guilt and marked with sorrow. “What’s wrong, love?” Seokjin asks, unlocking the doors of his truck as you slowly slip inside. When he arrived to the driver’s seat and shoves the keys in the ignition, the words fall from your mouth like rain, hands shaky as you gripped the bottom of your sweater.

The man laughs in the way you love most, “you’re joking, right?” He says with a smile, but when seconds prolonged and you don’t say a peep, his grin slowly vanishes as he starts the car quietly, driving with no destination in mind.

Suga ➳ The moment the words slipped from your lips, Yoongi’s once impassiveness heart was drenched with anger, your words of trying to coax him and telling him that it shouldn’t matter because your feelings for him is real was left evaporating into the sky — ignored. He pushed past you as he tried to get away from you, not trusting his own emotions but you followed him in tears, running across the street. “Yoongi,” you cry, grabbing onto his arm in trying to stop him in his tracks, “don’t leave me–”

But your words are cut short as he tips his hand away from your grasp, the force nearly pushing you to the side as he growls, “don’t fucking touch me.”

J-Hope ➳ “You what?” He questions, eyebrows furrowed as you begin to repeat yourself but he stops you as his face is suddenly cold, eyes ablaze a he refuses to stare you in the eye. “I bet it was fun, huh? Seeing how easy I could fall for you–”

“No, Hoseok, I promise, I love you—”

“Just,” he starts, licking his lips as a sigh escapes his being. “Please, go..I just want to be alone right now.” And when you leave after casting him a last glance, his body slumps against the wall as he tries to understand it all, as he wonders if everything he had with you — was just a game.

RapMonster ➳ He knew about the bet the moment you let him watch a video on your phone, a notification from one of yours friends asking about how it was going appearing for a few seconds before it disappeared — just like whatever form of lasting hope he had for you. He loves you, yes, but he was ready for the inevitable, ready for you to crush him with your own words and when two whole months pass by without you telling him, he confronts you about it.

“I was meaning to tell you, babe, I swear–” but he just stares at you as if you were a stranger, stoic as ever while chewing on his candy.

“Whatever you say.”

Jimin ➳ His once angelic features morphed into a spine-chilling stupor, biting aggressively into his apple as you await any sort of sign from the man. “Babe, are you–”

“Don’t call me that,” he snapped, slamming his apple to the table as you jumped from the sudden act. He was in love, he was hurt, he was livid — but there was one feeling he could feel in the very pit of his chest, and that was for you to disappear. “Get out.”

“But–” and he takes no time in shoving your belongings into your hands, pushing you out of the apartment and slamming the door; and once he was alone, he had finally let the tears fall.

V ➳ And there he was, speechless as his eyes whirled with betrayal once he felt you hug him, crying into his chest as you whispered apologies over and over again like a mantra, but he could care less — never moving his arms to engulf you and comfort you, only letting his anger get the better of him. He knew he shouldn’t be making much of a deal, it was only a bet for crying out loud but you were still by his side in the end, and if the bet never occurred — you would have never been.

“I’m going to be honest with you,” he cracks, “I wish I never met you, because this alone hurts too damn much.”

Originally posted by mvssmedia


Jungkook“I’m sorry,” you squeak, but he is lost in his own world. All he could see was your relationship for nearly a year flash before his eyes, from all the shared kisses and smiles and love, only to be smothered down by a plain joke made by your friends — and he could only imagine what you had to endure just so you wouldn’t hurt him.

But you did. He says nothing, life drained out from his being as he shoves his hands into his pockets, slowly walking away as he harshly bumps into you without noticing. He continues to walk, ignoring your cries as he leaves you behind because all he could think of, was that he was a only a pawn splattered in the middle of your hand.

Homecoming - A Jonerys Oneshot

Hey guys, here is a new little Fic of mine. Set after 7x06. I already wrote one where they’re having sex for the first time. You can find it here. But after the last ep I was inspired again. So here’s another one. Hope you enjoy :-)

Genre: Drama / Romance . Rated: E. Chapter: 1/1. Also on: fanfiction.net


The night was starting to ascend over Dragonstone and Daenerys stood at the window in the Chamber of the Painted Table and watched her dragons. They had anchored yesterday after a long week on sea of which Jon had slept most of the time. But to her relief he had looked better with every day. He was recovering in his old room right now Daenerys was hopeful that he would be completely healed in no time. She was alone in the chamber, Tyrion was back in Kings Landing planning their upcoming meeting with Cersei, making her fretful mind her only companion.

Within a few weeks her whole world had been turned upside down. It happened to her before, but this time was different, even more momentous. She had lost one of her children and it’s loss left a non -fillable void inside her heart. But she meant what she had said to Jon. As much as it hurt, she had now been able to see the white walkers for herself and knew why Jon had been so persistent about the threat they represented.

Jon Snow was the reason her world became so unlike the one she knew. Not just because he was the messenger who told her about the dangerous creatures that walked towards the kingdom she longed to rule over, but also because he, himself, changed it. Simply by entering it.

They’d just been acquaintances for a short time but she already couldn’t fathom how her life would look if he wasn’t in it anymore. She got a glimpse of that, when she had thought his life had been claimed by the icy waters that swallowed him. And she didn’t like the feeling at all. It has hit her then with full force, how much she really cared about him. Much more than what would be appropriate for an acquaintance or an ally. All this week’s in Westeros she had been so engrossed with her fight against Cersei and her demand towards him to bend the knee, that she hadn’t noticed that she and Jon had already got past that. They formed a bond way stronger than any bent knee would be.

It scared her how much her heart wanted him. She hadn’t felt anything like it in forever and even then it were the feelings of a young girl not that of a grown woman. In the years since Khal Drogo she had made so many life-experiences they had shaped her, hardened her in a way, so that she hadn’t known if she was still capable to love someone romantically.

But now she knew.

I want that cuddling that starts out so innocent. The kind where you’re already so close but you just want to pull each other closer. Pull me in as tight as you can and while we’re tracing patters with our finger tips on one another’s skin, I want you to steal a kiss. One that’s completely harmless but one you did just because you wanted to feel my lips on yours. And then when you pull away realize you want to come right back for more. I want to feel the softness of your lips and taste how badly you want me. Let me turn the tracing of my fingers over your skin into scratches on your back. Let me be your blanket of skin as I slowly place my body on top of yours. Feel free to explore me let everything from your hands to your mind roam completely free. Let me understand the way your heart beat starts pounding so hard I can almost feel it and your breathing get so heavy it’s almost hard to control as my tongue moves along your body. Don’t be afraid to hurt me babe. Claw, bite, pull my hair do whatever you have to do. I promise when you see the lovely marks left on your thighs by my mouth you won’t be ashamed. All you’ll think about is moaning my name and how with every hickey, every scratch and bite mark there’s a name on your body.. and it’s mine.

“I’m late for school!” You shot up when Tony whispered your name. “Oh, wait, I’m not in school anymore,” You smiled at your boyfriend sitting up next to you and fell back onto your pillow.

Tony rubbed the back of his neck and sighed. “(Y/N)…”

“I’M THE TEACHER!” You screamed and actually fell out of bed onto the floor. “Ow!” You yelled and stood up quickly, running around the room to get to the bathroom to start to get ready. The bathroom door looked onto the bed from your side and you could clearly see Tony’s amused look.

He was chuckling to himself with tired eyes. “(Y/N), we do this every week.”

You threw off your pajamas and grabbed the clothes you had laid out for today. “I know, Monday’s are hard!” You groaned and put your shirt on. Finally, Tony stepped out of bed and grabbed a random band shirt and put it on.

“I know, love, I know,” He laughed. “I’ll meet you downstairs,” Tony kissed your cheek and walked down the steps, beginning to pour you cereal and putting your prepared lunch into your lunch bag. You quickly emerged downstairs and kissed Tony before yelling that you were going to be late if you didn’t leave immediately.

“Dress sexy” .

Jackson’s husky words echoed in my mind as I washed my body, making sure to shave, exfoliate and almost everything else in the book I could think of. I touched my skin making sure it was silky smooth to the touch before turning off the water and stepping out. The steam enveloped the room, making it a foggy maze to the door. I grabbed the dark colored towel off of the rack, wrapping the fluffy thick cotton around my body before I left the humid room, relishing in the cold air hitting my wet skin when I opened the door and stepped out into my room. In my immediate line of sight, I could see a broad back and shoulders going through my closet, carefully inspecting each article of clothing before pushing it aside and moving onto the next.

“I like the red” I heard his low, smooth voice speak as he inspected a dress I wore once to some high end fashion party Bambam dragged me to.

“It suits you” he mused.

That deep, melodic and smooth voice belonged to only one person. But how and when did he get in my room? How long was I in the shower for? It couldn’t have been that long, could it? My mind was swirling with the bombardment of questions assaulting my conscious, the most prominent one being what the hell was going on.

“Jaebum?” At the call of his name he took his attention away from the dress and turned to me.

I could fully see how he was dressed now, a simple white button up, buttoned up to his elbows with black slacks on. It was simple, but with his accessories of the silver earrings and simple chain, adorning his neck, he made it gorgeous. Giving me a once over, his lips spread into a gorgeous breathtaking smile. He kept his hand on the smooth, silky fabric of the dress as he addressed me.

“Evening baby girl” he said in a smooth, polite voice.

The initial shock of Im Jaebum in my room, while I was naked no less, was staggering and highly difficult to get over to say the absolute least. He raised an eyebrow at my silence and I could see the smug glint in his eye. He was breath taking, it was almost impossible for me to take my eyes off of him. His dark hair was styled back and away from his forehead, giving me a view of his gorgeous features. He watched me as I watched him, silently egging me on to do something as I continued my ogling unabashedly. That was before my mind took me back to the reality of the situation; Until I was reminded of the questions that needed to be answered.

“What did Jimin tell you?” Finding my voice was difficult but to produce it was even worse.

Professor [R.L.]

Disclaimer: Gif isn’t mine, credit to whoever made it

+ + + + +

The N.E.W.T.s were just around the corner, and the pressure was at an all-time high to do the best you could. Each and every one of your teachers had piled on the homework, forcing you to have to stay up late and/or wake up early to complete it before class.

You were stressed, there was no doubt about it, but you couldn’t help it. Here, sat alone in the library after hours, you were studying Defence Against the Dark Arts for the exam in literally two days.

If the wrong person caught you here, there would be no doubt you’d get detention. However, you couldn’t bring yourself to care about that right now - all you needed was to get all the information from the textbook into your head by Friday.

In the silence of the room, you were sure you’d hear the door opening and closing, or the footsteps of anyone walking inside. However, you didn’t even realise someone was beside your table until they spoke out.

“Miss L/n, are you okay?”

Your head snapped up quickly, your heart jolting at the sudden shock. When your eyes landed on your DADA professor, your felt your heart beating faster, “Professor Lupin! I’m sorry, I-I know I’m not supposed to be here right now. I’m just studying for the exam on Friday.”

The young professor nodded, taking a seat beside you, “You shouldn’t be working yourself so hard you know. You’re a bright student, you’ll do well in all your N.E.W.T.s.”

Student. Of course you were just a student to him, even if you wanted so much more. Ever since the young professor had joined the school, you couldn’t help but form a crush on him, and over the months you’d been in his class, that crush had only grown.

He knew. He knew from the first day that you had a crush on him, although you had no idea he did. He also had been harbouring feelings for you too, however pushed them away as it could never happen - a professor and a student? He’d be in huge trouble.

Shaking his head of these thoughts, Remus glanced over your shoulder, “What subject are you having the most trouble with?”

“Defence Against the Dark Arts,” you replied. But it was only because you were always distracted in that lesson.

“If you need extra help, I could give you private tutoring?” Remus heard the words come out of his mouth before he could stop them. He’d done so well throughout the year, keeping his distance from you. Why now?

You could feel a blush forming on your face, and you thanked the heavens that the library was quite dark, or you’d be even more embarrassed right now. “A-Are you sure? That would be amazing, thank you!”

Remus nodded, “Uh, my pleasure. Meet me at my office tomorrow at 5. Now, go and get some sleep, you look like you haven’t slept in days.”

You grabbed your textbooks and smiled thankfully at your professor. Hiding a yawn, you replied, “I will. Thank you again Professor Lupin.”

“Anytime, Miss L/n,” you heard him say just as you left the library.

Remus sat with his head in his hands. What had he done? He couldn’t get close to you now, after all this time of pulling away… could he?

***

You found yourself becoming more nervous as 5pm grew close. It was hard enough being in a classroom full of students with Professor Lupin all year without accidentally staring too long or admitting something out loud; being alone with him again would be even worse.

The wooden door opened as you knocked carefully, and you had to try and control your heartbeat as the professor once again came into view.

“Ah, Miss L/n. Come on in,” Remus said as he led you into the room. You sat down at the desk and brought out your textbook, placing it down in front of you. Remus sat on the opposite side of the table, and you had to force your cheeks not to turn red, knowing he’d notice right away. You hated the way just his mere presence affected you so much.

“What do you seem to be having trouble with?” Remus asked you. “A few different topics. Mainly the one about werewolves.”

How ironic, Remus thought as he nodded at you. “Then we’ll start with that.”

It was an hour and a half later when you finally got through everything you had been having trouble with previously.

“I think I understand more now, thank you professor,” you spoke as you closed your textbook.

“You don’t have to call me ‘professor’ anymore, Y/n,” Remus told you. The way he said your name sent shivers up your spine.

“After tomorrow, I’m no longer going to be your professor. Call me Remus,” he said with a small smile.

“Remus,” you had to try and clam your heartbeat down again, “Okay well then, thank you Remus, I’ll try to make you proud tomorrow.”

You stood up, starting to head to the door when you heard him call you back. “Y/n wait!”

“Hmm?” You turned back around to look back at the professor. He appeared conflicted as he hesitantly stepped towards you, and when he stopped in front of you, he was so close you could have sworn you could hear his heartbeat.

The close proximity made you blush for the umpteenth time in a couple of hours, but before you could say anything, Remus’ hands were holding your waist, and his lips were on yours

It was strange, kissing him, but you loved it all the same. Finally you had gotten the one thing you’d wanted since the moment you stepped into his classroom back in September. Him.

As he pulled away, he couldn’t bring himself to look into your eyes however his hand was still wrapped around yours, fingers intertwined

“Whatever grade you get, whether it’s a Dreadful or an Outstanding, you’ll still have made me proud, Y/n,” he whispered softly. Your gaze was focused on your hands, a smile playing at your lips.

You placed a kiss on his cheek as you slowly pulled your hand away from his. “I’ll see you after the exam,” you said biting your lip slightly.

Remus nods, and you began walking out of the room again. He sighed to himself, but there was a smile on his face.

When he took the teaching position, he never expected to have a student quite as beautiful, as extraordinary as you were. But even so, he was thankful that you had stepped foot into his life. Because now he wasn’t your professor any more, he wasn’t going to let you leave so easily.

He loved you, he realised, and he wasn’t ready to let you go just yet.

About the vlog...

“Allura, do I really have to do this?” Keith asked behind the table as he warily eyed the small droid that floated in front of him, recording his every word and move.

The Princess nodded, folding her arms over her chest in earnest, though the sympathy etched into her expression was unmistakable.  “I know you’re not used to this kind of thing, Keith, but the universe needs to know that Voltron is more than just a giant robot with faceless pilots,” she explained.  “Getting to know the Paladins should help boost morale.”

Keith sighed, casting his gaze off to the side as he thought about what he was going to say.  Just let everyone know a little about yourself, that’s all, Allura had suggested.  “I… I know, I’m sorry, I just… I’m just not comfortable talking about myself.  The only person I’ve ever…” Keith locked his jaw, feeling the heat rise into his cheeks as he continued to avoid looking at both Allura and the droid.  “Nevermind.”

Puzzled, Allura furrowed her brow, but within a few seconds, her face smoothed over in realization.  She tilted her chin up, parting her lips in a silent, knowing ahh.  “I see.  Keith, I think it would help if you pictured… that person instead.  Act like you’re talking to him instead of a camera.”

Keith’s chest tightened as the vulnerability started to creep in.  She was right, though.  It was still difficult, talking about anything involving himself, but it was always easier with him.  

With a deep breath, he closed his eyes and pictured him.  His understanding, patient eyes.  His tender smile.  His easy voice.  The way he said Keith’s name.  The warmth of his hand against his shoulder.  How Keith never felt safer than when Shiro held him close, embracing him and everything that he is.

Shiro… Thank you.

Keith gave a small nod before opening his eyes and shifting his gaze to the droid.  “Okay.  I’m ready.”

“I’m just curious, even the simplest things. What is contained in a drop of water? One day I wanted to read about the eyelashes and found that our eyelashes the lives of a whole colony of organisms! For me, it’s amazing! I’m interested in everything, especially when you start to explore the world. It’s just phenomenal the amount of information it is amazing! I feel ignorant for not know much. And the more I learn, the more ignorant I feel. I swear! I understand that I still have a lot to learn! So I am drawn to bookstores. I can spend hours to choose books, and returned with boxes of purchases… I love to read. It’s wonderful, right? My curiosity knows no bounds. There are no such things that would be uninteresting to me.”

Y/N POV

My brain hurt. I mean, literally, hurt. I’d just spent the last hour and a half in AP Calculus and the equations were whirling through my head, going a thousand miles a minute. I don’t know how Lydia does it. She can sit in class and understand everything right away, while I sit in the back scribbling down notes as fast as I can. Unfortunately for me, this means that most of my Friday nights were spent late in the library of Beacon Hills High. In fact, that’s where I’m headed right now instead of going home like a normal kid.

I walked reluctantly down the hallway, trying not to drop all my notes as hundreds of other students filled the halls, ready to start their weekends. I was almost to the library when a kid jammed me with his shoulder, sending me straight into the set of lockers to my right. Luckily I didn’t hit anyone, but when the open locker in front of me closed, my stomach dropped. There in front of me stood the most gorgeous green eyed boy I’d ever laid eyes on. Theo looked at me with surprise and a slight smirk.

“You finally come to accept my dinner offer?” he teased, eyeing me up and down.

“You wish Raeken” I retorted with a grin. The students rushed by so quickly, it looked like a highway. I guess I’ll just have to stay here and talk to Theo until things slow down. What a shame.

“Oh c’mon Y/N, you know you’d love it. What do I have to do? Recite some sappy movie quotes to you?” he said, still smiling. I raised my eyebrows at him in response. I didn’t take Theo for the romantic movie type. “I want all of you, forever, you and me, everyday” he recited, hands moving as he spoke over-dramatically. I smiled at him and gave a small laugh. Noticing the lack of rushing students in the hallway I figured it was time to actually get to studying.

“The Notebook, Theo? Really? I think you can do better than that” I said before walking away from him, looking back to see him smiling at me as I entered the library.


A few hours later, my eyes began to droop and the words on the page in front of me became blurry. I yawned and stretched out my arms before dropping the heavy books into my bag. My keys jingled in my hand as the cool autumn breeze hit my face as I walked outside. The sky was getting dark and red and orange leaves scattered the pavement. My car was one of the only ones in the parking lot, so thankfully it wasn’t hard to find. All I wanted right now was to be in my bed, causing me to walk a little faster to my car. The string on my keychain broke due to my speed and my keys tumbled onto the asphalt. I sighed heavily before bending down to pick them up, when all of a sudden all I could see was black.

My eyes slowly fluttered open, and my head was pounding. It took a minute for me to remember what had happened, and that I didn’t recognize my surroundings. My arms and legs were duct taped together as I sat on the floor of what looked like an old warehouse. The shelves on the walls were empty, the lightbulbs in the fixtures were broken, and metal door was rusted. The smell of blood grabbed my attention as I felt around to find the source of it. There was a needle mark on my neck that had blood around it, that son of a bitch drugged me.

I sat in silence for what seemed like hours, trying to find something to cut myself free. I found a scrap piece of metal in the corner and tried to release my legs when I heard voices outside, causing me to only saw away at the tape faster.


Theo POV

Thoughts of Y/N drifted through my head as I continued to run down the cracked sidewalks of Beacon Hills. The fall leaves cracked under my feet and the soft breeze ran through me. I ran without any destination, just trying to clear my mind. Turns out, my destination was Beacon Hills High, conveniently where Y/N was the last time I talked to them. I slowed my pace and eventually stopped in front of the parking lot. Was that Y/N’s car? What time is it?

I checked my watch before jogging over to the only car left in the lot. It’s way too late for them to still be here. I walked around to the driver’s side door when I stepped on something hard. I moved my foot over to find a set of keys lying on the ground, Y/N’s scent all over them. I looked around, but there was no sign of them, making my heart drop. I could only assume the worst had happened, and began to follow the scent. I can’t lose Y/N.

I’d been tracking the scent for about an hour, which led me to an abandoned warehouse on the outskirts of town. I don’t recognize the dark SUV parked outside but at this point I didn’t really care. Y/N was in there and I was going to get them back.

I took a deep breath before extending my claws and showing my teeth, ready for a fight. I busted open the old wooden door to find unsurprisingly in front of me, a hunter. His plaid shirt and shot gun didn’t scare me, but I can sure scare him. “You know, if you wanted me to kick your ass, you could’ve just asked instead of kidnapping my friend” I told him, smirking.

“Oh we both know they’re more than a friend” he replied, smirk dropping from my face. “You never thought it was possible to love someone too much, but maybe it is. You’re the only reason they’re here. What you are, is the only reason they’re here. You did this to them”.

His words made my blood boil. I was here to save Y/N, not hurt them. The anger became too much for me as I charged towards the man. We struggled for control until I grabbed the shotgun out of his hands and struck him with it. I quickly took the keys from his pocket and unlocked the rusty door behind us.


Y/N POV

The duct tape wasn’t budging as I tried harder and harder to saw through it. The sound of voices outside the door only made me more anxious as I tried to find another piece of metal. I searched the floor frantically until I heard a struggle from outside. I waited for my kidnapper and probably his accomplice to come through the door but they never came. Instead, I heard the struggle end with a loud thud, and then silence. The jingle of keys made my heart race once again as I held onto the old piece of metal even harder. If he was coming in here, I was going to fight.

I heard the click of the lock and prepared myself for the worst. The large tarnished door began to open, and a single tear fell from my eyes. I wasn’t prepared for what I saw. Theo. The breath I was holding released and the metal piece fell from my hands. He ran over to me and broke me from my restraints, then took my hands in his and looked into my eyes. We sat there in silence for a moment until he spoke. “Let’s get you home”.

Theo shielded me from seeing the man in the other room and started to walk with me back to the school. We walked slowly under the stars and streetlights in silence, the only noise coming from passing cars the next street over and the faint whistle of the wind. The crisp autumn leaves broke under our feet, as neither one of us spoke of what had happened only moments before. I felt like he wanted to say something, but nothing came from his lips. The softness of the streetlights made the features of his face almost glow. Why had he come for me? I marveled up at him until he caught me staring, and gave me a small smile.

We both returned our focus to the sidewalk in front of us, but questions still filled my head. I decided after a while that I was tired of the silence. I turned to face him, but he was already looking at me, his green eyes already locked with mine. “Why’d you come find me?” I asked in a whisper, almost afraid of his answer. He broke eye contact with me and his gaze shifted to the ground below. It took a few minutes before he spoke again, “Because I love you, I knew it the minute I met you” he replied, voice just as low as mine. I stopped walking and turned to him, his gaze still on the ground. I took his hands in mine, causing him to look at me. The tears in my eyes began to well up as I brought my right hand to Theo’s face, slowly bringing his lips to mine. He brought his hands to cup my cheeks and when the kiss finally broke, with our foreheads together I told him: “Loving you kept me alive”.

“Then never stop loving me” he whispered, before bringing his lips back to mine.

anonymous asked:

oooooh i knew i was forgetting something lol. can the friends to lovers au be of jun? thank you so much! 😚 - 🌞 anon

- “it’s about time.”
- junhui walks down the steps of his porch and runs over to where you’re standing, apologizing over and over for making you wait
- you ask “and what kept you this time?”
- junhui grins sheepishly and says “ok maybe i forgot that we had that huge math assignment due today, and maybe i stayed up past one in the morning to finish it.”
- you laugh “you’re hopeless, jun.” and he grins in return
- you and junhui are fourteen years old, and have been friends for so much longer than that
- your days are all the same
- you walk to junhui’s house in the morning to pick him up, you two walk to school together, you two sit next to each other in class and fool around, you two eat lunch together, and then he walks you back home or you two eat out at a restaurant for dinner
- you love it
- it’s simple, just like your friendship
- you let him copy your homework, he treats you when you’re low on cash, and you two are there for each other no matter what
- that’s the deal. that’s how it’s going to stay.
- best friends forever, right?
- but things change and… some things are harder to accept than others
- you’re waiting outside junhui’s house like always, and he’s looking down when he exits his house
- he slowly walks up to you instead of excitedly running up to you like he usually does
- you ask “jun? what’s wrong?”
- he looks up at you and says “…i’m moving back to china.”
- and in that moment, you swear the world stopped spinning
- “what?”
- “i’m moving.”
- you ask “when?? why??” and he says “a month. my parents want to move back. they said something about wanting to be closer to family.”
- your best friend… the person who’s been with you your entire LIFE… is leaving
- this news hits you HARD
- it’s so hard to accept and you get so upset because you’ve been stuck to each other forever, and now… you’ll be separated…
- you have one month with junhui, so you spend as much time as you can with each other, but junhui has to go home early most of the time to pack his things
- on his last day, you and junhui are sitting around in the field near the lake, with you curled up into a ball and him lying down while watching the sky fake to dark blue
- he says “i’ll e-mail you as much as i can. i’ll send you letters. i’ll send you packages every time i see something that looks like something you’d like. don’t give up on me, alright?”
- you say “i’d never. you better not give up on me either.”
- junhui says “me, give up on you? psh, never. you’re stuck with me for the rest of your life, whether you like it or not.”
- this makes you smile, but when it gets dark, junhui gets up and tells you it’s time to head back
- the walk home is in silence… it’s too hard to stay positive when the person who’s been with you your entire life is leaving
- he walks you home, and before walking up to your door, you say “call me the second you land.”
- he doesn’t say that it’ll be expensive, he doesn’t say that his cellphone no longer works, and he doesn’t say anything of the sort to make you sad
- instead, he says “i will. i promise.”
- he’s gone the next day
- out of habit, you walk to his house, and it takes you a second to realize that he really is gone before turning around and heading to school
- the first day without junhui is the hardest, but you know you’re going to have to get used to it because you have more days ahead of you
- two days later, you don’t get a call, but you get an e-mail from him!!
- to my love (name)
- you roll your eyes at how greasy he is, but you’re grinning widely because you’ve missed him so much even if it’s only been two days
- i finally landed in china! i know i said i’d call, but my phone’s deactivated, so i’m e-mailing you instead! have you eaten yet? i hope you’re not too sad that i’m gone. ;)
- but in all seriousness, it may be nice to be home, but home… is back there. with you.
- i don’t know when i’ll come by to visit, but when i do, i’ll tell you right away.
- i have to start unpacking, so… i’ll talk to you later. expect your first package soon! - jun

- you re-read his e-mail
- once, twice; until you memorize every single word, and then your fingers run across your keyboard to send him a reply
- jun!! you don’t even understand how… dull everything is now that you’re gone.
- the ice cream we used to always buy after school doesn’t taste the same. train rides are boring. lunch is lonely. and walking home alone is the worst because i always turn to my right expecting you to be there, but you’re not.
- woah, i didn’t mean for that to be so dramatic, my bad. come back soon, okay? and stop growing, you giant!!
- i’ll be looking forward to your package! it better not be something stupid. miss you. – (name)
- a few days later, a package comes at your door and it’s a necklace…
- …that says jun
- e-mail (you to junhui): you’re an idiot.
- e-mail (junhui to you): just to make sure you don’t forget me ;)
- you don’t actually wear the necklace, but you do keep it with you at all times, whether it’s in your pocket or in a little pocket of your backpack
- you stay best friends and send each other e-mails and letters often, and through this… after four years of this… you realize you’ve fallen in love with him
- when you both decide to talk through skype instead, you see how handsome he’s gotten… he’s no longer the scrawny fourteen-year-old you once knew
- it’s finally summer vacation, and junhui says he’s coming back to visit!!!
- you scream “NO WAY!!” and he screams back “YOU HEARD ME!! I JUST NEED A PLACE TO STAY FOR A WEEK SINCE I’LL BE THE ONLY ONE GOING THERE… DO YOU THINK…?”
- you say “say no more. i got this.”
- you BEGGED your parents to let him stay over during his stay, to which they agree to because they know junhui and they love him to death
- after spending days planning what you guys are going to be doing for an entire week together and this makes you somewhat nervous…
- because… do you tell him you like him? or keep it this way and just stay best friends?
- you don’t know what to do because you don’t want to ruin anything… you don’t want the e-mails or skype calls or letters to stop…
- you don’t know what to do
- on the day he’s supposed to arrive, you’re waiting for junhui at the airport, waiting nervously to see him again
- junhui walks out, and you immediately scream his name “JUN!!”
- he looks up and he breaks out into a grin when he sees you
- you don’t know what’s gotten over you two, but you run to each other and you jump into his arms out of excitement
- this causes junhui to fall backwards, and when you both land on the floor, you look at each other and burst into laughter as people around you smile at the sight because you look like lovers who have been reunited again
- you both get back on your feet, and… seeing how tall he’s gotten, realizing how much you’ve both grown and how much time has passed, you just lose it
- tears spill from your eyes and you say “idiot, do you know how hard it was without you? how did you expect me to go through the rest of high school without my best friend?”
- junhui winces at the words “best friend”, but he says “what about me? going to a new school and not stealing bites of your lunch? not being able to walk back with you after grabbing a snack after school? it was lonely back in china too.”
- you hug him and say “i missed you.” and he says “me too.”
- you and junhui exit the airport and take the train back home, and you both fool around just like when you were fourteen, and it’s like nothing changed at all
- on your way home, you both decide to go back and sit on field next to the river, the last place you both went to before junhui left
- you both catch up on everything, and when it starts getting darker, junhui finally asks “(name)? can i ask you something?”
- you nod and he continues “are we really just… best friends?”
- you turn to him and ask “what do you mean?”
- he says “i mean… after all these e-mails and letters and skype calls… do you think you can… think of me as something more than just a best friend?”
- and you’re shocked because this is what you’ve been thinking this entire time… and you’re so happy to know he feels the same way
- you look him in the eyes and nod your head while smiling, and junhui’s eyes light up at your answer
- you both inch closer to each other, and intertwine your fingers while watching the sun set in the distance
- you don’t know what’s going to happen next because you only have one week with him before he leaves for china again
- but you know… you’ll both make it work

thank you for your request!!

I really want to become a Hellenic polytheist but I'm honestly a little overwhelmed when it comes to figuring out where to start.

I understand!

Seriously, I have asked myself the question so many times of, “If I could go back in time and tell my younger self how to make my journey into Hellenism easier, what would I say?” And the thing is, I’ve got good news and bad news for you. And they’re the same thing.

There is no set path for conversion in Hellenism. There’s no agreed upon starting point, and there aren’t specific things you need to learn first. That can make it very difficult to figure out where to start. It also means that you can focus on the areas that interest you and that you feel will benefit you the most.

My suggestion is usually to start by learning about the Pillars of Hellenism/Pillars of Hellenismos. These are the core concepts which help shape and define our worship as Hellenic polytheists. They’re basically the rules behind Hellenism. Now, not everyone uses the same set of pillars, not everyone agrees on all the same concepts as pillars, and everyone is going to put different pillars as more important concepts within their own lives and worship. And that’s okay. For instance, xenia and sophia are super important to me, but other people may put more emphasis on hagenia. I do have some posts that go into detail about some of the different pillars if you’re interested:

The other area that I see people start with a lot is altars and offerings, the meat and bones of worship basically. And that’s a good way to dive right into worship, but not everyone is comfortable starting to worship until they have a better understanding of the faith, and that’s okay too. Don’t worry about trying to learn everything though before you start worshiping–there are days when I still learn new things. If you’re waiting until you know everything in order to start giving worship, then you’re going to be waiting a lifetime. Here are my posts on offerings and altars and stuff:

I have plenty more sources if you want, and if you want to come talk to me I would be more than happy to help you figure out where you personally can start. My ask box is always open, and I am here to help.

EDIT: OH SHIT APPARENTLY RICH ISN’T AN ONLY CHILD FORGIVE MY INCONSISTENCIES 


There are two digits written at the top of his test. Red ink bleeds into the page, and even when he turns the paper around they show through. At first, the numbers don’t register to him–they’re unreadable, unreachable, and he feels numb all over, like nothing can touch him.

And then the score registers–61–and Rich suddenly feels like he can’t breathe.

Normally he’d be fine crumpling up the exam papers and tossing them into the nearest recycling bin, but that currently isn’t a viable option for him. 61 is far below the class’s failing grade, which means the teacher is going to call home. There’s no way he’ll be able to hide this from his dad.
