seriously one of the best bands

i want to be in a band so bad it’s actually killing me. like just the thought of being in a van with my best friends, traveling across the country and making music that has the potential to inspire people to do the same thing could actually send me to the grave

High School In Review (so far)+ Some Tips!!!

Hello everyone! I’m Niva and I am a student of the High School class of 2019.

Now I’ve been in high school for 2 years now, so I think that can give some pretty solid advice to ya little upcoming freshman and any person who is still struggling in high school. So buckle up ya seat belts and put on some shades, cause we’re about to take a LONG ride

I know there are tons of freshman advice videos and posts out here on tumblr dot com, so I’m gonna try and make mine unique

*Note: My HS experience is unique; your may not need any of these tips, so who knows. Also, this post contains profanity. I don’t know if y’all care, it just seems that the studyblr community are all these sweet angels who attend church every Sunday and read the Bible in their spare time.

~=+=~FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE YEAR~=+=~

my freshman overview: Look, this year was hardest compared to my sophomore year. One class literally ruined my life, my dudes. {humble brag} Throughout my entire life from PreK to 8th Grade, I had gotten straight A’s on all my report cards. My freshman year, I decided to take AP World History and BOY did it crush me. I made a C in the class first semester and a B in the second semester. Now, it was not the teacher at fault. In fact, I LOVED the teacher. I just was not interested in that class at all and the work matched with me being in Marching Band nearly sent me to my death bed. I’m not trying to scare you, I’m just being 100% legit. This is also a PSA to all freshman offered to take APWH: This is one of the harder AP courses, and I wish one of my teachers had told me this before I decided to take the class (they probably did and I ignored them). This also was my first year in marching band and I’m telling you right now, if you’re wondering whether or not you should do marching band, do it. Even if you just do it for one year, it’s fuckin worth it mate. 

my sophomore overview: This year was SIGNIFICANTLY easier. During my freshman year, the way the schedule was set up was an A/B schedule; your schedule would alternate. On A days, you’d have these 4 classes and on B day, another 4. My sophomore year, they changed that and it was a bit easier for me. Not that I didn’t like the A/B schedule (I loved it), it was just a lot easier to manage classes. I only had one AP class this year, because I couldn’t take AP Lang because of schedule conflicts. ANTYWAYS, AP Gov is one of the easiest classes I took. My teacher was extremely chill and put a curve on every test and quiz, so that’s mainly why I didn’t fail. Marching band was much easier to handle since I already had experience. This was also the year I quit TSA (technology student association) and VEX Robotics, due to scheduling conflicts with band. And, to be quite honest, neither of the clubs were fun lmao. Literature class was annoying, because I got stuck in a class that DIDNT WANNA DO ANYTHING. They didn’t wanna read along, read at all, do projects, breathe, etc. (if you need tips on how to handle a trash class, just ask and I might make a post on that lol). Chemistry was purgatory, not hell, just purgatory. It was hard but not too hard that I didn’t pass. Math has never been hard for me so nothing really changed with that class. This year I brought back my streak of All A’s, so this school year was the best of the two in my eyes.

~=+=~The TIPS~=+=~

1. Normally, freshman don’t take AP classes, but if you are, be prepared. Depending on the class subject, you’re gonna have to do a hell of a lot more than just read the chapters once and do one page of notes. Try to always be ahead of the class and start some sort of study group. 

2. You’re best friend does not need to be your project partner all of the time. Seriously. If you have friends like mine, you will sit on your phone looking at memes on twitter for a long ass time before you ever start your project. Try doing a solo project every once in a while.

3. Don’t randomly join clubs. I was offered to join BETA Club and I didn’t wanna do it, so I didn’t. Don’t do clubs cause it looks nice cause 90% of the time, that one club won’t affect anything.

4. Save money. If you’re in marching band, dear god, save your money. School might as well be charging you to breathe. Everything cost SO MUCH MONEY. If you need to, set up a secret money jar so your parents don’t hijack your money.

5. Make new friends. Unlike most people apparently, I didn’t lose any friends. I do talk to certain people less because of class schedules, but we’re still friends. There is a small ass chance you’re gonna get caught in a class full of upperclassmen and no friends, and I had that situation. It’s not fun. Eventually, you’ll make a friend in that class, so don’t panic. But, anyways, new school, why not make new friends?

6. Don’t? Switch? Lunch? Tables? Okay, I don’t mean that someone’s gonna like sucker punch you out of your seat like in the movies. I mean like if we’re 5 months into the school year, don’t just randomly change your table, because …just don’t do it.

7. Don’t be that person who purposely gets on the teacher’s nerves to make class harder.

8. If you hate one of your teachers, suck it up buttercup. You have a choice of passing or failing, don’t let a teacher ruin an A in class for you.

9. Try and be on the other side of drama. It’s much more fun to watch drama go down, that to actually be involved in it.

10. Be early (if you can). I ride the bus, so I have no choice. But, there is legit no reasons for you to be walking into the class 10 minutes late, because you thought you could sleep an extra 5 mins.

11. I know your literature class is getting boring. This is probably your 7th consecutive year of learning the difference between a simile and a metaphor. I don’t know why they continue to reteach that stuff, but they do. All I can say is utilize what their teaching in some way, so that you don’t feel like the class is completely useless.

12. We all have that one class that you just do nothing in. Take advantage of that and get work done. I don’t have a “study hall” class so, any time you have to do work, use it.

13. Go to at least some of the school events. You can get relatively free food. 

14. Look, I could not care less if you skip school. But, don’t do it often and if you can, don’t do it ever. 

15. If you’re gonna eat in class, don’t eat something obvious like Lays Chips or a whole orange

16. Make friends with your teacher. Don’t be like creepy, but like, don’t have a bad relationship with your teacher.

17. Sophomore year, start thinking about college. You may think it’s too early, but it’s not. At least have an idea of what you want to major in.

18. If you can, get your permit as soon as you turn 15. Please don’t be like me. I still cannot drive and getting from Point A to Point B is harder than the VESPR Theory.

19. Disrespectful classmates are just an opportunity for you to get special privileges in class. If you’re class is disruptive and you’re just a sweet little angel, the teacher will most likely be more lenient with you. My teacher literally gave me a 100 on a project I turned in a day late (supposed to be 5 points off) because literally me and this other girl were the only ones who turned the project in.

20. Do your homework the day you get it. I don’t give a damn if it’s due in two days or two months, do it right then and right there.

21. In your language class, please try. Nobody likes the kid who doesn’t participate. If the teacher asks,  ¿Como estas?, you better fuckin say ¿Bien, y tu? back.

22. If you’re in a situation like mine, you’re gonna have a class you didn’t sign up for, yet somehow you got it. Just deal with it. If you can’t change your schedule, that’s all you can do. Just do the assignments and hope you pass.

23. Okay, most schools don’t have a “popular” group. But all schools definitely have the Prep group. You know, those kids. If you’re not one of them, just ignore them. If you are one of them, stop being so goddang stuck up and realise that you have an annoying voice. If you are not sure if you are a prep, you most likely are not.

24. My school doesn’t use lockers purely based on the fact that it would take too long for kids to get to them and back to class since my school is so big. So, if you also do not have lockers, make sure your bookbag can handle one full school year. I cannot stress this enough. You don’t wanna walk around school with a 15lb bookbag and only one functional strap.

25. Eat the school food. It’s honestly not as bad as the internet makes it. Like…eat ya pizza and enjoy it.

26. If your single and you want a relationship, please do not get a crush on random people like me. Someone would let me borrow a pencil and I would fantasize about a wedding for the next 2 days. I know it’s hard being lonely, but being in a relationship won’t get you a college scholarship.

27. Don’t drink a lot during school. There’s gonna be a teacher with a restriction on the bathroom because for some reason, they think bladders have a specific schedule to follow.

28. Don’t be that freshman that dates every senior in sight. If you have a relationship with a senior and it lasts, great. I’ve seen it happen, but 90% of the time it does not. 

29. Likewise, if you have a friend that’s running you up the wall with their problems, specifically relationship problems. Find a way to distance yourself from them, or even better, get them help from someone else.

30. If you have Type 4 hair (or type 3, it depends), you gotta do your hair at least 3 days in advance, especially if your hair is short. I don’t know a single person with kinky hair who can wake up and just simply throw their hair up.

31. Look, man. Just look here. Look at me in my eyes and listen. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, IF YOU ARE GONNA HAVE SEX USE A CONDOM! USE A CONDOM OR DONT HAVE SEX AT ALL. I’m not speaking from personal experience, but I many of girls have gotten pregnant at my school

32. If you’re gonna do drugs, don’t. Don’t be stupid. Especially if you’re in a school club or sport. You are subject to random drug tests at all times. 

33. Try not to let people affect the way you dress. Wear what you want.

34. Something about you is gonna change. Your personality, your look, your aesthetic. Whatever changes, don’t be stuck up. Nobody likes stuck up people; not even stuck up people like stuck up people.

35. You know those posts that are like “Grades don’t determine intelligence?” Yeah, well they don’t determine your intelligence, but they can determine where you get into college (if you wanna go) and how you’re seen and perceived by teachers. At least, try to pass.

36. If you can, take the ACT or SAT or whatever standardized test you have for your schools. I had an opportunity to take the SAT in 4th, 7th, and 8th grade for $35…and I didn’t take it once. I heavily regret it. Mainly I didn’t take it, because, at the time, it was hard for my mother to pay for it when we had much bigger problems, but like, if you have the opportunity and the funds to take those tests, take them.

37. Don’t rely on quality points. In my school (they’ve gotten rid of this now though), if you’re in an AP class you got 10 extra points and if you were in an Honors/PreAP class, you got 5 points. Colleges look at your grades without the points. The only purpose for these quality points is so that kids in CP classes don’t get valedictorian or some shit idk

38. If you’re in America, you’re gonna have somebody walking around school in a Trump shirt. By all means, beat their ass, but know the consequences. Also, if you’re gonna talk about politics with somebody, please know at least the bare minimum. At least know what the Hillary email scandal is before you try and defend her. Same goes for my friends across the pond. You see someone supporting Theresa May, beat their ass, know the consequences, and learn politics.

39. Actually? Check? Your? Grades? I know so many people who just don’t know what they’re grades are. Know you’re grades so you always know where you stand.

40. I wanna say class rank does not matter, but if you’re anything like me, you’re gonna obsess over it for a while. I know you wanna be in the Top 5, but if you’re no where near it, you’re gonna have to work EXTREMELY HARDER THAN NORMAL. Try not to make a huge deal out of it, unless you’re aiming for Valedictorian.

41. Moisturize ya self. Don’t nobody like ashy knees and elbows. Invest in some lotion.

42. Listen. We all hate dress code. But just follow it. You can’t do anything about it. Just wait til the weekend to wear your spaghetti strap shirt and ripped jeans. And if you wear leggings and you have a wide hip and butt area, you are definitely going to be called out. If you’re not sure if you’re breaking dress code with what your wearing, bring an extra shirt and jeans just in case.

43. Go the fuck to sleep. Don’t be up at ass o’clock in the morning doing who-knows-what on the internet. I know from experience. You may think you can survive 8 hours of school with 2 hours of sleep, but as the day goes on, you’re not gonna want do anything at all, but sleep. But hey, if 2 hours of sleep works for, go ahead. It’s not healthy but I can’t regulate your life.

44. If you walk in the wrong class, everyone will forget about it after the a good 2 days. Literally nobody cared that much. Just walk out and forget about it.

45. If you have a phone, get your friends numbers/contacts/emails. You’re gonna need them for homework sooner or later.

46. To all those uber religious people out there, drop the clean act. If you hear somebody say “fuck”, get over it. I don’t know how else to say it. Teachers cannot stop somebody from cursing completely. People are gonna have sex, people are gonna cuss, people are gonna be inappropriate, and all you can do is focus on yourself.

47. Wear deodorant. You will be surprised at the amount of people who don’t. 

48. Studyblr is fun. Studyblr is nice. That being said, studyblr is not the end of the world. If you don’t have a bullet journal, just use the calendar in your phone or have an online bujo. Don’t let studyblr take up 90% of your study time, because scrolling through the studyblr tag is not studying.

49. Don’t be that kid that walks around with fucking surround sound speakers on their back. Wtf, like invest in some headphones my guy.

50. Never buy a 1 inch binder. Always 2 inch and above, unless you know for sure you only need a 1 inch.

51. You are gonna have a set of people you absolutely hate that for some reason, you cannot get away from them. The best you can do is ignore them.

52. If you’re required to take a Fitness class and you are a festively plump child or an unhealthy/unfit person such as myself, you are going to be embarrassed at some point. Look. I cannot give you advice that’s gonna raise your self-esteem, but I can tell you that if you don’t pay attention to anyone else, it’s much easier to get through that class. The fitness gram pacer test doesn’t last forever. Likewise, don’t treat fitness class like the fucking Olympics. The coach asked for 10 pushups not 100.

53. Extra Credit is your friend. Even if you have a 100 in a class, extra credit doesn’t hurt.

54. Do not walk slow in the hallway, please. I like getting to class on time. If you plan on having a conversation in the hallway, only do it if you walk and talk at a reasonable speed.

55. If you ride the bus, get up at least 45 minutes before the bus gets there. I don’t have a big morning routine, so half of the time in the morning, I just scroll through twitter. Wake up early enough to get everything done.

56. C’s get degrees, my friend, but C’s don’t get scholarships.

57. If you wear AXE Body Spray or any perfume/cologne, I want you to know that your smell occupies the entirety of the hallway you’re on. Please, use only a small amount of fragrance, because not only do they most likely stink, some kids have asthma and some kids are allergic to fragrances. Just refrain from wearing strange smelling spays.

58. If you’re a theatre kid or sport kid, don’t be completely set on becoming a professional singer/actor/athlete. Have a Plan B. The last thing counselors wanna hear when they ask you what you want to be when you grow up, is a NBA Player.

59. To all my shy people out there, that speech you have to give doesn’t last forever. In fact, it may only last 3 minutes. In my literature class, we were required to recite lines from Romeo and Juliet, for some odd reason, and I made such a big deal out of something that barely affected my grades.

60. For this last and FINAL tip of this post, don’t give up. I didn’t wanna be generic, but here the fuck! I! am!!! When I took AP World History, part of the reason I ‘failed’ was because I just stopped trying. I would make low C’s on the test and just think, “Well I didn’t pass, might as well just give up.” Well, no shit you didn’t read the chapter. If you’re trying all you’ve got and you’re just not making it, talk to the teacher. That’s one thing I regret from my freshman year. I just gave up. I didn’t try and get help because I felt that getting help meant that I was stupid. It doesn’t. It just means you’re smarter for trying to get a good grade.

WELL THAT’S ALL FOLKS! Sorry if my cursing doesn’t fit your aesthetic, too bad. I can probably think of 40 more tips to make this 100, but I didn’t want this post to be extremely long (lol good job on that). Anyways, if you ever want any help, feel free to message me, but I’m not that good at text conversations or conversations in general so I’m your last resort.

TO THE UPCOMING FRESHMAN: Have a great first year of high school! You’re about to enter a new life where the teachers are more serious and, yes, coloring still somehow counts as a grade.

TO THE UPCOMING SOPHOMORES: I know. You’ve only been here one year and your tired. Have hope. You’re one year closer to that diploma.

I’ve talked about this before but I’m probably never gonna stop talking about it bc Little Mix have worked SO hard, they fucking WON the X Factor, they’ve put out four amazing albums, they’ve been co-writing their songs since day one, they’ve had zero scandals, and it took them five years to get here, five years to get where One Direction got in one year with that generic trash single What Makes You Beautiful.

Like seriously, Little Mix is probably the best girl band of the last ten years and they deserve to start finally getting some fucking recognition.

Langst Mini Fic #3 (Part 2)

Emotional Imbalance (Part 2)


Hunk really didn’t want to be that guy but there was just no way in earth’s core that someone, especially a human, to stay so freaking happy all the time without even a small glimpse of a frown. And no, Hunk was not talking about the kind of frown that stemmed from confusion but rather the other one that was cultivated from anger or frustrations. There was nothing that could convince Hunk that there was nothing wrong with Lance.


For goodness sake! This was Lance, the guy who jumped without thinking when he recognized Keith during the time they found Shiro, the guy who almost cried when Iverson lectured him about being not a good enough pilot (Oh, Iverson was still a jerk in Hunk’s book, okay?), the guy who excused himself from a party in order to cry in peace.


The very same guy who has an aura of sunshine and roses, day in and day out, for the past few weeks.


Did Lance caught a space flu? Did he eat something? Was there some kind of mind altering drinks he consumed from the previous planets they freed or helped? Was he bitten by a space insect?!


Hunk has so many questions but no answers at all.


“Ow!” Hunk had to remove his hands away from the little one he was holding when the kid sneezed and spikes erupted from their body.


“Careful, Hunk! The kids apparently still has minimum controls of their physical abilities!” Lance chuckled and set down the water child he was carrying. He went over Hunk and examined the fingers that were bleeding a bit, “Hm…just like a pin prick of a needle. Nothing a band aid won’t fix!” and Lance patted his best friend then resumed playing with the children.


Hunk frowned as his eyes followed the retreating appearance of the Blue paladin


Something was seriously wrong with Lance.


A tug on his armor got him out from his thoughts. Hunk looked to the source and found out that it was the child who accidentally hurt him with spikes. The watery eyes was enough detail for Hunk to realize that the kid wanted to apologize. With a defeated size, Hunk patted kid’s head.


And the kid sneezed again.


-/-


Lance was in cloud 9.


His body feels so light and it seemed that nothing could ever snuffed out his good mood. It has been weeks and not once Lance felt that he was the worst member of the team. It was like all his negative thoughts vanished after a good night sleep. At first he had assumed that it was Blue who did it so he went and thank his beautiful lion only to be met by a confused purr.


So it was not Blue

He didn’t even feel bad whenever the others snapped out of him! Like when Allura and Shiro lost it due to stress when Lance was trying to lighten the mood in one particular mission they had days ago. The two of course apologized to him separately and said that their behavior was not excusable despite being tired due to the multiple attacks the team was receiving from the enemies. Lance just waved them off and replied back that it was understandable to reach the end of patience when the life of the whole universe depends on them.

Lance was too happy to care that this constant positive attitude was something considered as weird in a human level.

But as they have said, things would always find away to turn the table around.

A huge explosion from one of the military buildings happened.

“We’re under attack!”

Lance merely laughed and whispered assurances when he ushered the children towards the Castle of Lions before making his way towards his lion.


(I don’t know when Part 3 will be, sorry  o(〒﹏〒)o )

anonymous asked:

Just bringing back this Camren tea Foxella posted on January 1, 2017 pre-IHQ: "They were forced to keep it quiet because at the time, one of the members was bearding for a foreign born singer. Over the past year, the two band members had some definite ups and downs. One of the members of the group had a fling with one of her childhood friends. It was all too much to keep the relationship going and one of the members left not only to heal her broken heart but also to make a lot more money."

“one of the members left not only to heal her broken heart but also to make a lot more money.”

That’s seriously the best way to get over a relationship. Lmao! 😂😂😂

Pro tips; high school version

-do not skip a class you have anything lower than an A in. Trust me
-do your homework, you will regret it later if you get a C in a class you could have gotten an A in all because you wanted to scroll through social media instead of do math
-it’s high school, there is going to be drama. Don’t create it, try to stay out of it. It doesn’t do anyone any good to be an instigator
-don’t lie about stupid shit to seem cool or “edgy” it’s not cool to be fake.
-don’t talk shit about people, especially your friends. Letting off steam is okay, but don’t make it a habit
-pack your bag every night, spare charger, ear buds, papers, books, binders, deodorant, lotion, pencils, markers, highlighters, extra lead/sharpener, anything you need for the next day
-it’s not odd or weird or dorky to pack lunches, but if you pack them bring extra snacks to eat because you will eat in class
-most high school teachers don’t give a shit about gum, that’s middle school bullshit
-cursive almost never comes up, I don’t know why but I was taught and retaught it seven times in my 10 school years and haven’t used it past 7th grade.
-bring gum, and snacks and pencils, and WATER you will need it
-it’s okay to not share stuff, if they didn’t bring it don’t feel the need to give them it. This includes papers, foods, drinks, pencils and pens, markers, sharpies, gum, anything
-make new friends, it’s actually really easy.
-almost every one goes into high school thinking they won’t go to college, or having some massive Harvard plan. It’s okay not to know at all, or to aim for a community college.
- try not to plan too much, life does things to plans
-work hard at classes you don’t do well in, summer school sucks, you don’t want to be there and neither does anyone else.
-smile at people, compliment them, if they are rude to you, don’t worry. Nobody remembers anything really
-study, do what study method works best, don’t watch tv while you study, or try and be on your phone as “breaks” use a book instead. So you aren’t tempted to just say fuck it and quit
-plug your phone in every night
-get a job as soon as you can/want to the spare cash is a good way to motivate you to do things.
-don’t disrespect teachers, be their friends, laugh with them about things and remember they are here to teach, not babysit
-don’t fight on school grounds or bring anything illegal unless you absolutely have to. If some one hits you, don’t hit back, if they are gonna beat the shit out of you before help arrives, then hit back.
-seriously don’t do drugs at school
-take your medicine for whatever you need
-always have period supplies in your bag and locker(s) because even if you don’t start randomly some poor girl will and nothing is better than helping out other girls
-don’t be afraid of eating alone, no one notices and if they do they will probably invite you to sit by them
-do not talk shit about your friends, you will get caught and it has lead to some nasty things
-don’t ass kiss either, it is annoying and most people actually don’t like it
-be honest not blunt
-you will make friends, don’t worry about it
-dating is not a big deal, it mostly just ends in heartache
-don’t expect anything from the world, it owes you nothing
- try and find a hobby that makes you happy, electives are good ways to do that. You like music? Piano, band, orchestra, choir etc. You like dance? Dance, drill team, cheer leading, gymnastics etc. You like arts? Art, graphic design, etc. Languages? Spanish, ASL, sometimes French or German.
-try to find one person to lean on, or many. Don’t worry about how many friends you have, it’s quality, not quantity.
-seriously, I have like seven best friends and I love them all equally and we all get along fine
-don’t be afraid to cut people out of your life, rumors die, and nobody will remember this in ten years except maybe you.
-high school is stressful, I’m not gonna lie, and it sucks a lot of times. You will probably want to quit, just remember your goals and morals, and try to find people to go through life with.

bands with rad ladies in them

ok so this list is waaaay far from complete but here’s a list of some of my favorite bands with women in them. it’s a pretty diverse list (like seriously - classic rock to metal to indie pop), so there should be something for everyone. most of them are female fronted, there are also a couple girl bands and bands with women playing instruments. each band is listed with their genre(s) and also a song that I feel exemplifies them pretty well (although that’s mostly personal opinion). a couple also have some cool facts added bc why not. feel free to add your own faves!

  • Paramore - pop punk/ alternative; “Brick by Boring Brick” - probably one of the better known female fronted bands, and by far the best known in the pop punk/ emo scene.
  • PVRIS - rock; “My House” - they’re a very new band but they’re becoming popular very quickly which is super rad because one, they’re amazing, and two, the lead singer Lynn Gunn also plays guitar (which is cool bc lots of bands have female singers but not very many have women who play instruments) and is openly gay.
  • We Are The In Crowd pop punk; “The Best Thing (That Never Happened)”
  • Crystalyne - pop rock; “Punks Don’t Dance” - they’re super underrated imho so do yourself a favor and go check them out
  • Tonight Alive - pop punk; “What Are You Afraid Of”
  • Hey Violet (formerly Cherri Bomb) - pop punk/ alternative; “I Can Feel It” - they’ve been associating with 5sos a lot lately but don’t let that tarnish your opinion of them bc they’re an amazing all girl band!! and as if that weren’t enough, they were super young when they got together - they were all fourteen year olds, I think.
  • Bikini Kill - riot grrrl punk; “Rebel Girl” - required listening if you wanna be a real punk (as opposed to a fob punk)
  • Be Your Own Pet - punk; “Black Hole”
  • Against Me - punk/ alternative; “Unconditional Love” - the lead singer is a trans woman (Laura Jane Grace) which is hella cool
  • CHVRCHES - pop rock/ electronic rock; “The Mother We Share”
  • Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - riot grrrl punk; “Bad Reputation”

Seventeen As Band/Marching Band Members

Seungcheol: Trumpet

-He’s got the confidence *cough cough arrogance* of a trumpet player
-But also the talent and hard work to make up for it
-He would be shameless in his boastfulness and use any excuse to tell people that he made first chair
-If you genuinely compliment his playing he’ll get vry shy and be all bashful and flattered


Jeonghan: Clarinet

-He looks like he’s nice but is probably talking shit about the rest of the band
-Loyal af to those who earn it but will be neutral and non-expressive if you rub him the wrong way
-Probably joined band because his parents made him but decided to stick through it anyway.
-Is good at clarinet without trying and always gets first chair without actually practicing


Joshua: Euphonium/Mellophone

-UNDERAPPRECIATED AND FREQUENTLY FORGOTTEN
-Tries his best even when other people are slacking off
-Is generally a chill person in band class
-Is the only person who actually listens to the drum major during marching rehearsals


Junhui: Snare

-Acts nonchalant but takes percussion more seriously than he gives the impression of
-HE IS THAT GUY THAT NEVER WEARS A SHIRT DURING MARCHING REHEARSAL
-But no one complains bc dang boi you looking fine
-Causes people to miss their dot because they were distracted by his beauty or just plain shocked at his lack of clothing
-People think he’s showing off because he twirls his drumstick between his fingers really fluidly and like all of the time but in reality he does it subconsciously and didn’t notice he was doing it until Flutist!Seungkwan slapped it out of his hand one day


Jihoon: Oboe

-Refuses to do marching because he thinks it’s a waste of time and they don’t march oboe(he refuses to switch instruments)
-Takes AP Music Theory as well as band
-Jihoon: “Well at least I’m first chair”
-Jun: “You’re the only oboe in this class”
-Jihoon: “Shouldn’t you be hitting something”
-Thinks highly of his playing AS HE SHOULD because it’s the most beautiful thing
-The rumor is that after he left his audition into the band the band director had to take a break, cry, and come back to continue auditions
-Coincidentally, his next audition was Percussionist!Vernon so the band director ending up crying after that audition for the complete opposite reason


Soonyoung: Colorguard (I’M NOT EVEN SORRY)

-Is the most hype of everyone and  cannot stay still for the life of him
-Was a dancer until he say flyers for guard try outs and was like “guns? Swords? DanCING WITH FLAGS??? SIGN ME THE FUCK UP”
-Is friends with all the marching band kids and knows everyone’s name in the program
-If you don’t march and are only in band classes then you don’t count in his eyes lol (unless you’re Oboe!Jihoon because he may or may have a small {LARGE} crush on u)
-Is the person who cheers and yells encouragement after each run through
-If you are mean or negative to him or someone he loves then he may or may not “accidentally” whack you in the back of the head with a rifle or swoop your legs out from under you with a flagpole


Wonwoo: Sousaphone

-Very chill and content with chit chatting with everyone
-Is probably the only one besides GuardMember!Soonyoung and Piccolo!Seokmin who is genuinely happy to be there
-Low key has resting bitch face but as soon as you start talking to him it’s a 180 flip and he lights up completely
-Has tipped over and fallen during runs several times over the years
-Mellophone!Joshua is always the first person to run and help him up
-Clarinet!Jeonghan is always the first one to start laughing and the last one to stop laughing
-If DrumMajor!Chan happens to notice Wonwoo fall while he’s conducting, he can’t help but stop immediately and bust out laughing


Mingyu: Marimba

-Thought about marching in the battery but was like “naw, it’s heavy and I’ll get all sweaty and ugh too much physical effort” so he stuck with front percussion and is very good at it
-Wears low cut tank tops or no shirt at all when on the practice field because “I am not about to get a farmer’s tan that will never go away”
-Still gets a major sock tan and will  complain about it incessantly
-Mingyu: “But it’s so noticeable!”
-Joshua: “When you think about it, we all have terrible sock tans… Is it like our own friendship mark thing?”  
-Jeonghan: “Shut up Joshua”
-Soonyoung: “BE NICE TO HIM”


Seokmin: Piccolo

-Can’t tell if he’s playing his instrument or just screaming
-Always smiling and making stupid faces back and forth with GuardMember!Soonyoung until DrumMajor!Dino catches them and tells them to knock it off
-They stop for like ten minutes then start again
-Enjoys sneaking up on people and then playing the highest note he possibly can directly into their ear
-He did this once to Oboe!Jihoon and never ran away so fast in his life because you better bet Jihoon ran after his ass
-Jihoon may or may not have put rainbow stickers all over his piccolo as a form of retaliation
-Didn’t work though because Seokmin LOVED THE STICKERS and kept them on until the next competition where DrumMajor!Chan was like “no you cannot march with those on your instrument, it’s not uniform with everyone else”
-TO WHICH HE BOUGHT 100 PACKS OF STICKERS FOR EVERYONE ELSE
-So that they could all be uniform with rainbow stickers
-DrumMajor!Chan shot him down immediately, but let Seokmin stick stickers all over him because he felt bad that he ruined Seokmin’s fun

Minghao: Saxophone

-This sassy diva omg of course he’s a saxophone player
-Was forced into marching by his parents but stuck with it because he liked the people who marched and wanted to stay friends with them
-Is naturally really good at playing the saxophone and doesn’t have to try very hard
-Wanted to do winter guard during the off season but was too scared of what the rest of the band would think
-Was almost convinced by Percussionist!Junhui to do indoor percussion but Saxophone!Minghao took one look at the fair share and was like “NOPE”
-Always talks to Percussionist!Jun during stand by
-DrumMajor!Chan doesn’t tell him to stop because he knows he’ll just start talking again
-DrumMajor!Chan has no problems putting Percussionist! Junhui in his place tho lol boy gets told off a lot but Percussionist!Jun always has a clap back, even if it doesn’t really make sense
-Chan: “Jun, for the love of God stop talking, and put on a shirt!”
-Jun: “It’s too hot, why don’t you take off your shirt!”
-Chan: “??? No?”


Seungkwan: Flute

-Likes to gossip with Clarinet!Jeonghan but always accidentally warps information or takes it out of context so it sounds weird
-Seungkwan: “Yeah so then Jun told Chan to take of his shirt”
-Jihoon: “this is why I don’t freaking march”
-Soonyoung: “oh but you should!” *spaces out with a derp face because now he’s picturing Jihoon shirtless under the setting sun with the wind blowing his hair*
-Doesn’t take criticism well
-Chan: “Flutes, play louder next time” -Seungkwan: “Maybe you should conduct better next time”
-Chan: “I WILL COME DOWN THERE”
-Is really supportive of the new kids and tells them fun stories to cheer them up when they feel overwhelmed
-Seungkwan: “Yeah and then Wonwoo just tipped right over and everyone kept going”


Vernon: Bass Drum

-Thought that being a percussionist would make him popular with the ladies so he auditioned but had no experience playing drums before
-Didn’t think it would be very difficult, but was dead wrong
-He was so bad he made the band director cry, but the director let him join anyway because they needed more percussionists
-He actually worked really hard and got better at percussion and even decided to march
-He wasn’t experienced enough to do snare yet though (which is what he really wanted to do) but was content with being put on bass drum
-Followed the influence of Percussionist!Junhui and also never wears a shirt, but people yell at him for it instead of staring at him lol
-Asks Percussionist!Junhui to teach him how to spin a drumstick between his fingers because he thinks it looks cool
-Spent the next six hours practicing it until he got it down perfect


Chan: Drum Major

-The most responsible even though he’s the youngest
-Commands respect from everyone marching because no one likes to see Lee Chan angry like it’s just not fun for anyone because he’ll pout for days
-Tries to keep everyone on task and is generally successful in this
-Made up his own little drum major salute for right before performing and everyone agrees that he looks so cute while doing it even though he’s trying to be professional and manly
-He’s the glue that keeps everyone from falling apart, and the marching band wouldn’t be nearly as good without him

I agree, this is a smart and savvy plan all around. This initial tour gives harry a chance to develop his stage craft on his own on a reasonable scale. People keep talking about how this isnt going to make a ton of money, but that's not even the point right now. Columbia invested a lot in him and their promotion in him reflects that. the primary focus right now is expanding his fanbase and establishing himself as a major star because they're planning for long term success. I'm so proud of him 🤗

Harry, a man who is worth £50 million+ and has signed with a company that is willing to throw $80 million towards his solo career, is not worried about making bank on his first tour.

The way I look at it is a test-run. How will things go? How quickly will tickets sell out? Is what they’re doing with Ticketmaster and the verified codes actually worth it? Is the preorder system through the UK beneficial to the fans? Who is Harry Styles on tour? What’s the best-selling merch? Is having a lot of the venues be 18+ a good idea? Is there a proper amount of personal security for Harry and the band?

There are things that his team need to consider when booking his first tour. And like you said, I’m proud of him for doing it this way. It shows he cares about his career and is willing to take the time to do it right.

He’s got one chance to introduce the world to Harry Styles, solo artist, and he’s taking that quite seriously. It’s a good thing.

To the people who say ‘Drummers are ugly’ and ‘unimportant’ let me show you how wrong you are... I mean look at these people!

Guys i want a friend

Seriously I want a friend who sends me random selfies at three am; i want a friend with the one i can have conversation only using music lyrics; I want a friend with the one i can fangirl about bands and actors; I want a friend with the one i can talk about art and music knowing Im not boring them; I want a friend that actually wants to talk to me; i want a friend that sends me bad jokes and the cheesiest pick up lines, just because; I just want a friend, a best friend, someone that actually cares.

Umm have you ever read Six of crows? This is really random. But the book is so good. It's a heist book with a diverse band of characters. I love how they grow there may little babies

Leigh Bardugo owns my soul, ever since Shadow and Bone (one of the best YA trilogies of all time in the history of ever, like seriously, everyone should read it and understand why evil boyfriends are so important to me).
But Six of Crows is a fantastic read. I actually went and met Leigh Bardugo a number of times for book signings, and to get some fan art signed. She’s fantastic. Her work is fantastic. 

A couple days after I met Richard Speight, who played out buddy Skip Muck, he said, “Babe, have you seen the cuts?” I said, “No.” He said, “Well, do you remember the other day you told me about you and Muck receiving communion up in the woods in Bastogne, and what you said to Muck-that if you died, you would die in a state of grace?” He said to me, “Babe, I never forgot you telling me that. So when we shot that scene with Father Maloney giving communion, I put that in myself. I turned to the character Babe, and said, ‘Well, Heffron, if we die, we’ll die in a state of grace’.” Richard Speight did that on his own. That really affected me. I often think of what I said to Muck lying in bed at night. I think, 'Well, I’m going to Mass tomorrow. I’m going to say a prayer for Muck and the guys’. Because after communion, you think about dying in a state of grace, and I always think of Muck.

Ladies and Genitals! Thank you all so much for the likes and reblogs of my last two stories! I’m so happy people liked them! This fic today was again inspired by conversation with @hannibalssweaters about that stare from dear old Papa II. “It’s like he’s staring right into your soul and then fucking it.” So uh…enjoy!

(Also, if people are looking for a beta reader, @espurrwhat is mine. She’s pretty damn awesome!)

Warnings: Might be slightly dub-con, graphic depiction of…well, an orgasm, there’s a boner in there…this is odd. XD
