some are in the laundry

Laundry Day

Natsu and Lucy arguing over the last washer in the laundromat prompt inspired by @nalufever. Thanks for the idea, Eav!


“Yep, I’ll pick up chocolate on the way home,” Natsu spoke into the phone quietly as to not disturb the other people in the laundromat with his normally loud voice. After ending the call, Natsu pressed the red button on his phone to end the call before getting his laundry done. Clutching his phone in one hand and clothes in the other, he stuffed some of the garments in his laundry basket into the washer and shut it before reaching toward the washer below it.

Unfortunately, another hand reached forward and grabbed the handle as soon as he grasped onto it. As his hand covered the other person’s, annoyance ran up Natsu’s spine. Narrowing his eyes, he glared up the arm’s length only to find that a woman was attached to it.

A really gorgeous one.

“Can I use the dryer, please?” she asked in a dulcet tone, and Natsu found himself enchanted and would have retracted his hand if not for one thing–it was the last washing machine not in use in the place.

“No can do, lady,” Natsu replied, slightly shocking himself. Usually he would have given it up for her, but he had a job interview tomorrow and his clothes were filthy. And it wasn’t like he came to the laundromat often–he was only here about once a week to wash his clothes like normal people did.

But he had never met someone this beautiful before at one of his weekly outings. She wore a sweatshirt and jeans with paint on them–probably because she had plenty of other clothes to wash–but her blonde hair and ivory skin looked clean and bright. Her hazel eyes, though, glared at him as if he had done something wrong.

Which he had, but that was besides the point.

“And why not?” she questioned, posing with her hand on her hip and her chest pushed slightly forward. It would work most of the time on men, but this particular occurrence she was wearing a sweatshirt that covered all of her assets and jeans that didn’t even cling slightly to her curves. This was going to be harder than it looked.

“Cause I have a job interview tomorrow!” Natsu growled, shifting his eyes to her chest and then back up again at her eyes. The woman’s eyes narrowed further, and she looked like she was about to slap him before her own eyes darted to a blood stain on a pair of jeans.

“Is–Is that what I think it is?” she asked, lifting the pair of trousers from Natsu’s hand and staring at the back of them.

“Um…yeah. My sister Wendy got her period the other day, and I told her I’d wash her clothes along with mine. I dunno how the hell to get those stains out though,” Natsu told her, face slightly reddening as he scratched the back of his neck. Periods weren’t something he was well-versed in, being a guy and all, but Wendy had filled him in and was the one calling right when he was about to finish the load of laundry

The woman’s face lit up instantaneously and she detached her hand from the washer with a smile. Natsu felt like the air was knocked out of him as she chattered on about stain removers to him. Dear lord, how could one woman be this pretty and have her emotions change so suddenly?

“And then you just dab it on the stain with a towel,” she said, lifting the jeans up to him and showing him her handiwork. “Then you should be all good to go!”

“Wow, thanks, uh–,” he replied, realizing that he never got her name.

“Oh, I’m Lucy! Lucy Heartfilia. Nice to meet you,” she said, sticking out a hand to shake his.

“Nice to meet ya, Luce! I’m Natsu Dragneel. Sorry for all the trouble earlier,” Natsu said with a nervous smile, feeling the warmth from her hand radiate into his.

“No problem! If I would have known what it really was for, I would have let you use it immediately,” Lucy responded, grinning one more time. Wow, her smile was even more gorgeous than he originally thought!

“You can use that one. I think another one opened up over there.” Natsu pointed across the room where someone was taking their clothing out of the washer and pushing in into the dryer.

“Thanks! But…don’t you wanna ask me on a date before you go?” Lucy smiled slyly, and Natsu sucked in a breath.

Deciding to let his confidence run the show, he grinned slyly. “Sure, Luce. But are you sure you’re ready for a crazy adventure?”

“Oh, I think I can handle it,” she replied with a wink. Writing her phone number down on a piece of paper she withdrew from her purse, she shoved it against his chest before sauntering out of the laundromat with grace she didn’t even know she had.

“Call me,” she said into the wind, knowing that Natsu would do just that, and soon.

100 Days of Productivity (16/100)

I’m trying out something new with my bullet journal- minimalism. I think I like how this looks! I’m very worn out from yesterday’s excursion still, so today was very slow. I went to the bank and did some necessary paperwork I’ve been putting off, I did laundry and even changed my sheets! My mouth still aches from last week’s orthodontist appointment, though…

listening to: halo // starset

[21.10.17]

I’ve been smoking mainly joints since I started up again and I usually have anywhere from 3-5 puffs which lasts me for a while. Today I smoked a joint I accidentally rolled too thin and there was no way I would be able to put it out & relight it without it falling apart, so I decided to smoke the whole j instead of letting it go to waste. Anyways that was almost 6 hours ago and I’m still baked. I thought I was good to drive over to tim’s but driving made me realize how stoned I still am lmao. I need to shower and do some laundry but I feel like I’ve melted into the couch 🤦🏻‍♀️

Keith in the Garrison
  • Person A: man you know Keith Kogane is the most responsible person ever!
  • Person B: I heard Iverson called him a model student
  • Lance, who over heard them: yeah whatever blah blah responsible Keith blah blah
  • Keith, running up to where Hunk, Pidge and Lance are standing: listen you guys don't know me and I don't know you but I just blew up a fucking washing machine in the laundry room and I'm gonna need some help
What I Learned From University

FIRST YEAR

  • Everyone is super friendly, especially in the first few weeks → Introduce yourself to the people sitting near you for the first few weeks of lectures. Everyone is looking for a friend or at least someone to talk to!!
  • If you commute, make that time productive → My bus ride was an hour there and back each day. It sucks but I would try to be productive for at least half of the commute. I have a post about being productive on public transport here.
  • On that note, stay on campus as long as possible each day → As soon as I got back home I would procrastinate every little thing. Stay in an already productive environment for as long as possible.
  • Maybe don’t buy your textbooks used → I thought I was being smart by buying used textbooks (most schools will have a buy and sell facebook page for textbooks). I ended up having to pay for access codes in order to do my online homework – access codes that cost ~$70 separately and came included with new textbooks anyways. Email your prof or talk to someone who has recently taken the class to find out if you need an access code. If you do, your best bet is to buy a new version of the textbook (unless you can get a seriously cheap used textbook).
  • Print off your timetable and find all of your classes before the first day → This helped me so much! I found exactly where all my classes were before the first day of class. I wrote down little tricks to help me remember where everything was (i.e. my calc lecture is in the arts and science building which is also where the only subway on campus is).
  • Don’t knock living at home to save money → If you’re lucky enough to have a college or university close to home at least consider living at home. Getting your own place or living in dorms is expensive. (But if you have to find off campus housing on your own, don’t leave it too late or you might not find a place)
  • Figure out the best way to take notes for each class → You have to customize the way you study for each class, all depending on the prof and the content. I hand-wrote notes for some classes (chem, calc, and physics), but not others (psych and bio). If you’re writing by hand you can always just annotate your textbook notes or lecture slides (if they’re posted before class). If you fall behind while taking notes, just leave a gap and check out a friend’s notes after class.
  • Adjust your expectations → Don’t expect to get straight A’s, like you might have in high school. You can strive for straight A’s but be realistic as time goes on. For classes I struggled with, I expected to be near the class average. If I was a lot lower than the class average then I would know to invest more time.
  • Make time for physical activity → If we’re being honest I hardly exercised during uni. Go for at least a half hour walk each day and try to start a physical activity routine. Get a friend and join a sports team, go to a fitness class, or commit to some form of a daily workout with them! You’ll feel bad bailing on someone else, plus working out is more fun with other people.
  • Review content throughout the semester → Reviewing little bits of content will save you a massive content review right before finals! Look through old notes while you wait for your daily coffee or take 15 minutes to watch some khan academy videos on stuff you learned in the first month of classes.
  • Think seriously about how much you can handle → Don’t take on too many responsibilities at once and consider all of your options! I worked weekends and some week nights throughout the school year. Looking back I should have worked less because my stress levels were way too high. Also, quite a few people I talked to took 4 classes instead of 5, for their first semester of university. I don’t think I would have done it, in the end, but it’s always something to consider.
  • Have fun but be responsible at parties → Always go to parties with people you trust!! If you didn’t do much partying/drinking during high school (like me), remember to pace yourself when drinking! Eat before you go out and have some water between each drink, till you find your limit. Don’t let yourself be peer-pressured into anything but also don’t be afraid to have fun! And check out if your uni has a safe walk program (someone will come and walk you back to your dorm or your car if you feel unsafe or nervous for any reason)
  • When procrastination hits, aim to be productive in some way → The only reason my biology mark was so high was because I would study biology whenever I got sick of studying for physics and calculus. If you know you need to study but just can’t do it, start by being productive in some other way – study a subject you do like, do your laundry, organize your study area, etc. Get your brain to start thinking productively.
  • Labs are difficult so be prepared → I had so many labs first year. Some tips: eat and hydrate before labs, never assume you can finish your prelab last minute, be nice to your lab partner, always remember lab safety (don’t be the person trying to wear shorts in the lab, TAs will not hesitate to kick you out), don’t rush through an experiment but be efficient, and ask for help (even if you feel like you’re bothering your TA).
  • Please go to bed early. Sleep affects everything → I was so dumb and would never go to bed early even though I had to be up at 6 am almost every day to catch the bus. Lack of sleep will catch up to you eventually!! Also, all nighters are not necessary, unless you make them necessary. I prioritized and never had to stay awake too late. And never pull an all nighter the night before an exam (you’re better off getting sleep and resting your brain).
  • Bring a water bottle everywhere → Buy a decent water bottle and always carry it with you. Even though my uni is small there are still tons of spots around campus where I can refill my water bottle!! Stay hydrated my friends!
  • A practice problem a day keeps the F away → This saying probably works best for science classes, but I guess a reading a day will get you somewhere too. Do something for every class each day, even if it’s just a practice problem or a quick reading. Develop a routine!
  • You’ll have lots of midterms → I was under the impression that midterms happened just once a semester (I thought I would have one week where I had a midterm for each class). That was not my reality. I had 2 or 3 midterms for each of my classes scattered throughout the semester. Study really hard for your first set of midterms till you get used to the high expectations!
  • Don’t worry about what other people are doing or thinking → This is mostly in regards to social media. I was bummed when I looked back on my first year of university, because I felt like I hadn’t done anything fun compared to other people. You only see the image that other people want you to see. You don’t know how hard someone worked or how hard they didn’t work. Just focus on you and how you can affect positive results in your life.
  • Other people literally don’t care about your appearance → My friend’s little sister visited campus and asked us “Why is everyone wearing sweatpants?” People literally don’t care. Dress nice and put lots of makeup on one day, because you feel like it, and wear sweats the next day.
  • Start essays and reports as soon as possible → You never know what might come up so be prepared for the worst! Outline your essay or graph your data as soon as you can.
  • Eat healthy and do meal prep → You can eat healthy during university! Set aside a couple of nights each week to do meal prep. Cook food in bulk to save money and don’t eat out too much. Try to have at least 1 serving of fruits or veggies with each meal or snack you eat!
  • Find a good study spot on campus → Explore your campus and figure out your favourite places to study. I had a couple of spots where I would always meet my friends to study and quiet spots where no one would bother me. Studying outside or in an area with natural light is always good.
  • Don’t be afraid to talk to your profs and TAs → This is the number one thing I’m going to try to do more of in my second year. TAs are chill to talk to and they can tell you tons of useful information on what upper year classes are like, which professors are good, why they chose to go to grad school, etc. If you’re struggling in lectures or labs, talk to your prof or TA! Make an appointment and be sure you can tell them exactly which concepts you’re struggling with or at least where you got lost. One of my profs told us he just waits hopefully during office hours for someone to come in. (Also profs love it if you ask them about their research or any topics they seem passionate about during lectures.)
  • Explore all the resources your university has to offer → My university has a program that is basically people bringing their dogs around for students to pet, in order to relieve stress. It actually works and gave me something to look forward to! Just be aware of your options so that if something in your life changes you know where you can go to ask for help.
  • Get a planner and utilize it → There’s no excuse not to have a planner of some sort. Use your phone, get a bullet journal, or buy a cheap planner. Have somewhere where you can record important deadlines and make to do lists. I also recommend back planning all of your studying at the beginning of the semester. Write down your midterms and finals dates and write down how much you’re going to study each day leading up to the exam. This way you’ll be able to look ahead at each month and figure out what needs to be done (i.e. getting an essay done early because the due date falls during a busy week of midterms)

This post ended up being a lot longer than I expected whoops. Take the things I said into consideration but remember that everyone’s experience will be different. Good luck to everyone heading to university!

Stuff to do on a sunday

…or weekend for that matter. 

I thought I’d compile a little list of things that I aim to do on the weekends in order to not fall too deeply into the pit of lazyness and slackdom. Feel free to add your own advice and sunday/weekend rituals. {see other advice posts}. 

Let’s get into it:


Tidy your space. Resetting your room or apartment will make a big difference in your stress levels. Having clutter laying around here and there will ultimately reflect on your mental state, so take a few minutes (it can most likely be done in 20 minutes) and take charge.

Vacuum or mop the floors. Now that the place is tidied up, take 5 more minutes to finish off and tackle dust and crumbles on the floor. 

Change your bed sheets. A freshly mase bed smells and feels nice and it might even improve the quality of your sleep.

Open your windows. Let some fresh air fill your room.

Do your laundry. Mondays can be tough, so make sure you have your favorite outfit ready to wear.

Clean the dishes. Again, saving monday morning.


Exercise. Mens sana in corpore sano. Moving your body is vital to your overall well-being, so find an activity that you enjoy.

Be social. You might want to invite a friend and exercise together, go for a long walk or have a sit in with tea and cake.

Pamper yourself. Take a bath, shave, if you want, apply a face mask, use lotion, clip and file your nails, apply polish if that’s your thing. Use peeling on your skin, and conditioner for your hair.



Bake. If you find this relaxing, try a new recipe. Not only will baking make your place smell amazing, you can also spread some cookie-love. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like receiving baked goods unexpectedly.

Listen to music. Put on the new record that you didn’t find time for to listen in the week or blast your favorite classic album.

Create. Paint, draw, grab your camera or guitar, make a vlog, write a poem, blog. Whatever you prefer.

Read a book. Have you already re-read the Harry Potter books this year? You probably should.

Go outside. Walk around, explore your neighborhood. Find a cute café, watch people walk by and sip on some tea or coffee. Go to a museum or gallery and learn something new.


Tackle unfinished task. Sit down with your planner and look for unchecked tasks in your weekly overview. Do them if absolutely necessary. However, super important tasks are probably crossed of already anyway.

Plan the upcoming week. Make a list of tasks that need to get done in the upcoming week. Try to prioritize. If you’re bullet journaling, this can be a wonderful creative outlet to decorate a few pages.

Prep food for the next day(s). Take responsibility for your nutrition and try not to depend or rely on the food that’s provided by your school, university or work place. Many meals can be cooked in bulk, stored and you’re good to go for many days, with only having to cook once. This ultimately saves time and money.


That’s about it. I hope you might have found one or another useful tip. However, there’s one last thing to do on sundays:


B e   l a z y .   It’s the weekend after all, so feel free to just not do anything at all. Try and push aside some responsibilities, stop worrying about tasks that lay in the future. Sleep in, have breakfast in bed, binge-watch your favorite show on netflix or curl up with a good book. Just chill the heck out.

Little random, but it just occurred to me how different Arnold and Helga’s dreams are in terms of… everything, really.

Like Helga has these trippy, poetic dreams full of thinly veiled metaphor and high fantasy, and Arnold’s are always grounded in at least some semblance of reality. They can be a little trippy at times, sure, but there’s always a sort of logic to them. It’s like Helga’s dreams are all Homeric hymns and Arnold’s are classic novels. At least in the sense that one is amazing to read but utterly ridiculous and the other just… makes sense.

I normally only focus on Arnold’s dreams since they’re such a theme in the show, but Helga has dreams, too, and they reveal a lot more than just how fixated she is on our leading football head. Arnold has a lot of fantastical ideas and daydreams, but his subconscious is very grounded, whereas Helga puts on a show of being a realist, but deep down is overflowing with wonder and enthusiasm and hope

I just never thought about that before.

Not sure if this is how you want the drabble game to go but "come sit on my lap like a good pet" with Jungkook pls?

The washing machine is entirely to blame, not that it broke down or whatever, but because you’re fucking terrible at doing laundry. So technically, it’s your fault.

Jeongguk’s sex drive is impossible to keep up with, so you try not to do anything to trigger him, especially when you’ve had a long day or if your period is coming. But today’s just one of those long days after 6 hours straight of lessons and you just want to tug on some sweatpants, collapse on the couch and wait for Jeongguk to bring back dinner.

Wish You Were Here (Tom Holland Smut)

pls forgive me


You toyed with yourself as you paced around your bedroom. Not knowing what exactly to do, you were at a loss. You didn’t want to cave, but at the same time you were beyond caring. The reward would be too great if you would just succumb to your wants.

Tom hadn’t only been messing with his fans all week, but you too. What started as a simple joke tweet had amassed into hysteria in his fandom. He’d initially planned on only waiting a day before showing the world a simple selfie of his new hair cut, but after seeing everyone freak out he decided to take it a step further and mess with everyone for a few days.
