score reading

Introduction Post: Yuzuru Hanyu

I am a bit confused as to why I was asked to do this since I thought there are quite a lot of posts out there already, but… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So sit down, grab a blanket, and have some popcorn; this is going to be long.

‘Cause we’ll be talking about this nerd:

I’m getting messages about how unfair it is for Yurio to win and I read that score-wise, Yurio couldn’t have scored that high (for his SP at least). Personally, I believe he deserved to win just as much as any other skater but my main reason would be that when puberty hits him, he’ll probably need to take a season or two off to adjust his body and shit. So yeah, winning the GPF before his body changes is the probably the ONLY chance he has in case things take much longer to work out when he grows. Not everyone can slip right back on their skates and nail every jump after their body develops.

Asks regarding Victor is about how it will effect Yuuri’s intention of winning gold when Victor rejoins the skating world. Guys be realistic. He can’t just re-enter back halfway through this season. If Victor Nikiforov is coming back, he’ll have to come back next season.

As for Yuuri, I’m getting messages about the so-called delayed wedding lol. In regards to both Victor and Yuuri’s asks, technically the skating season doesn’t even end with the GPF so I’m not surprised of Yuuri possibly moving to a new home rink. If he nails his programs, his scores should be well and above Yurio’s and his competitive base scores would rival JJ’s. He can still win gold this season. If I’m not mistaken, Yuuri still has Four Continents and World Championship to compete internationally so yeah, if there’s a season 2, I think it’d focus on these two. If it timeskips to next skating season instead, well let’s hope there isn’t too much tension between the legendary Victor Nikiforov with his one and only disciple *coughlovercough*

So, they are doing a Haikyuu!! orchestra concert and I would love to go but that’s not the point, but doesn’t this call for a Nodame Cantabile AU ??? Like, Hinata would totally be the can’t-read-music-score-to-save-his-life-but-plays-by-ear Nodame like character, and Kageyama would so be Chiaki-sama. It fits so well omg.

I really love this picture btw <3

Guess who scored Accomplished in nearly every category during her admin observation?

It’s this first year teacher!

It’s like the Bruins were shown a triangle with the point reading: “high scoring offense” “shutdown defense” and “solid goaltending” and were told: “you can pick up to two of them.” 

The person who wrote this headline really needs a few lessons in proper usage of words or writing in general. More Stupid is a very uneducated and rather juvenile way of saying Less Intelligent or Less Knowledgeable. This is how the headline should be written: America’s children have become less knowledgeable and have scored lower in reading, math and science while the Obama Administration was in charge. While I will note that Fox News probably has a limited number of characters per headline, that doesn’t justify this poorly written headline and article for that matter. As a girl whose craft is words, this makes me ill seeing a journalist being so incredibly uneducated and unskilled. Lastly, we damn well know this isn’t Obama’s fault. This issue has had a long time to develop, way before Obama was even in office. This is an issue within the country as a whole, not a singular administration. Rant Over.

it's a running joke in my school's orchestra that all the strings can't read rhythm, even the concert mistress that has abrsm grade 8 can't play in time, she had a solo and her rhythm was totally off and it was so bad during the concert, I don't understand why the strings tutors insist on teaching them to play by listening when the conductor is literally in front of them and reading scores are a thing smh

neptunebbys  asked:

I saw the anon who wrote about her Saturn in the 5th and you said you often noticed people are involved in work that relates to what house Saturn is placed in. What work would a Saturn in the 1st house be involved with?

good question, I have Saturn in the 1st, and write after I wrote that I wondered to myself, what work would I do that involves Saturn in the 1st? Well in my case, I find that I don’t do well in jobs where there are so many rules and expectations. Those of us with Saturn in the 1st live by our own rules! So my answer to you, is self employment is a great thing if you have Saturn in the 1st! That’s why I run this blog, THIS IS MY JOB!!! I love working for myself as an astrologer, but I do live off donations and whenever I’m lucky enough to score a reading, so it can be unstable… that’s the thing, those of us with Saturn in the 1st spend all of our attempts at stability on ourselves, so we don’t often find stability out in the world…

here’s the draft i’m working on for Saturn in the 1st:

Saturn in the 1st house is someone who is a magnet for the finger of blame. Sometimes you fall into scarcity mindset, afraid that if you squander what you have now that you won’t have enough later, to the point that you may end up depriving yourself in the present.  You often have a cautious nature, weighing out what could possibly go wrong before moving forward; this is often a result of your upbringing, perhaps you weren’t able or allowed to act freely from pure youthful expression in your childhood, your parents put many restrictions on you, emphasizing how to behave appropriately, so perhaps you ended up being nervous that whatever you say or do is wrong. You feel that you have received more shame than the average person, and that the way others have judged you was overly severe. Having a lot expected out of you from a young age has given you an underlying urge to let loose. Subconsciously sensing that anything you do could lead to punishment, you have held yourself back from experiencing a number of things, and restrained yourself from asserting your power. You bite your tongue when someone says something rude to you, later on wishing that you could have put them in their place, but you were too hesitant to be assertive. you learn to take chances in a calculated fashion, finding the balance between freely expressing and asserting yourself, while maintaining composure. 

You learn to not fear consequences to the point where you miss out on excitement, as Saturn in the 1st can approach life with apprehension; you are finding the happy medium of being realistic and aware of negative outcomes, and attempting to move forward in life, attempting to achieve without the fear of failure. Saturn in the 1st at its worst can be very critical, a refusal to let go of the chains of thought patterns that weigh them down. I have Saturn in the first house, and for a while I was under the mindset of “judge or be judged”, then I grew to realize how important it is to not judge others, to understand where they’re coming from, that you never know their entire backstory, so it isn’t fair to come to an opinion about their life choices. You come off as serious to others even if you really aren’t that serious of a person. Others may perceive you as socially awkward and you can be very self-conscious about presenting yourself, anxious about dealing with others, but you’re actually more aware of the consequences of words or actions than others may be; feeling resentful towards the loudmouths who speak and act without censoring themselves, you are often well composed and able to navigate life with sensibility,

5 facts about me

Got tagged by @jessyloveneko​, so here goes…

★ I can’t draw in silence. I either listen to music or listen/watch playthroughs on youtube.

★ I can kind of play the piano and violin, but I can’t read music scores. So it’s nearly impossible for me to play a piece if I never heard it before.

★ I’m bilingual (English and Russian), but I can also speak Japanese, a little Korean, and a tiny bit of Russian Sign Language.

★ I think in pictures. (I only recently found out that most people don’t think this way.)

★ I talk to myself a lot, thankfully only when i’m home alone, and mostly in Japanese.

I could hardly come up with anything interesting. I guess. I don’t even know if anyone is interested in this kind of stuff. Oh well.

I tag anyone who wants to do this. 

In other news, I’m currently working on another Kanato drawing. Which has so many flowers, that I’m starting to regret my decisions, so much work…but I won’t give up, really liking how it’s turning up. So, look forward to that.  ☆ ~(‘▽^人)
