take it and run with it internet

Ya know,

I haven’t even been a legal adult for a year.

Haven’t been away from home for more then six months.

Haven’t really got to experience life.

Yet here I am wondering if my mother will be able to finish school if the government takes away the free internet. Wondering how schools will run if they have to pick and choose what they spend. Wondering if I will ever be able to pay for just living when I get my own place.

This is not something an 18 year old should worry about. I should be focused on my upcoming finals instead I am scared for my freedom.

Just a reminder that I’m an Adult™ and if that makes you feel uncomfortable feel free to:

  • unfollow me
  • ask me to unfollow you
  • block me

I won’t get mad or anything. It’s important to make sure you feel comfortable and secure.

You wanna be an ally? You wanna “punch Nazis?” Keep reading.
Look, people. This is fucking serious. Please read.

We aren’t glitter bombing Nazis. We aren’t throwing flour on them. We definitely aren’t going to peacefully shut them down. They want to kill us, they said so in Charlottesville. They made it very clear where they stand and how they plan on taking action. Their violence needs to be met with great force.

If you are not down to physically fight these fuckers, please stay off the front lines. You’ll get hurt and your pacifism will be a liability, resulting in others being hurt. Run support. We need more support.

-Go to a street medic training
-Run jail support
-If you’re good at using the internet (as in better than average), learn how to securely (and correctly) doxx these people.
-If you’re a creative type, write a zine about anti-fascism
-If you’re EMT trained, HOST a street medic training
-Become a legal observer through the
National Lawyers Guild
-Set up letter writing events to send to political prisoners
-There’s a lot of parents who want to fight but can’t because of their kids, watch their kids for them
-If you can cook, organize food drives/pot lucks for the larger demonstrations.
-Help people in more counseling/therapy ways.
-Help get needed supplies, such as food, water, and medical supplies.
-When organizing, inclusivity is not optional, and is mandatory to win.
-Listen to the concerns of those most effected.

Add any extra support jobs you think of.

people with ADHD are old computers

  • slow processor
  • one program at a time
  • most programs take forever to start running
  • and even longer to close
  • wait no I didn’t mean to open that one-
  • don’t try to rush them by asking them to run the program over and over. They will start screaming and probably crash
  • after running one program you need to restart them in order to run anything else. try again when they wake up lol
  • guess who takes forever to wake up !
  • there are certain programs that are really lightweight and don’t require much effort to run. Hope u like solitaire cause you’re gonna be doing that a lot
  • listening to music is just colorful swirls???
  • certain programs CAN NOT run by themself they NEED help from the cd-rom or else they will NOT work sorry
  • need to access information? Sorry they only have 2GB of total memory so they’ll need to use the internet to look it up but it’s like 2002 and shitty
  • there are programs that require a processeing power they Do Not Posses and they live knowing they will never get to enjoy them
How to dry rose petals the lazy way

My dear husband gave me some pretty white-pinkish roses for Valentines Day and as they were starting to wilt I figured it would be a waste to just throw them out. So why not dry them! My usual method of drying involved bundling the flowers and hang them upside down over a radiator. I used to do this quite a lot when I was a teenager but I have lost the patience to do so (Also I don’t have a suitable radiator in my current house anymore)

I looked around for a faster method and stumbled upon a few options:

Option 1: Place petals on a flat surface in a warm environment with lots of ventilation and leave for a loooooong time.
No. Not an option if you have a hyperactive 4 year old running around and destroying everything in his path.

Option 2: Dry them using an oven. Place rose petals on an oventray and put them in the oven on 200 degrees while leaving the oven door open.
Still takes too long for me so I found another method:

Option 3: Nuke the fuckers. The microwave, Now let me tell you, I was a bit skeptic about this. I mean, rose petals in the microwave? I don’t know man. But hey, they said on the internet that it would take only a minute. Not too bad,so I tried it.

I placed the petals on a plate covered in kitchen paper, making sure that the petals were not touching each other. I place the plate in the microwave and blasted them for a minute an a half. They were not completely dry yet so I nuked them for another minute. The came out perfectly dry.
You want them to be crunchy, like potato chips, if they are still bendy, there’s still some moisture left in them.

 After they’re nuked till crispy I placed them on a baking tray to dry for another 48 hours before storing them in an airtight container (I placed the tray on top of a closet and out of sight from my dear little monster child)

^ This is the result of me being an impatient little shit.
I put the 2nd batch of petals in the microwave for a full 3,5 minutes because, hey, maybe it’s faster than checking on them every 30 seconds…
Burnt the everloving fuck out of the poor things.
So be patient.

Tah-daah. Finished. 
The pot I used is a glass airtight pot that used to hold instant coffee. The only reason I drink instant coffee is because of the pretty pots like this one, I’m building up quite a collection of them. They’re very useful to store various stuff in

Anyway, I hope this was useful!
I’ll make a new post about what to do with them once I figure it out myself :)

Net neutrality doesn't affect me...

YES IT DOES. Kindly pop a squat and we’ll talk about it.

Net neutrality means an equal playing field. It makes the internet a strange and beautiful place where anyone can post anything they want. From web pages about cats to fundraisers for mosquito nets to prevent malaria or a small site like Tumblr or Facebook taking its first baby steps towards popularity. EVERYONE IS EQUAL ON THE INTERNET.

UNTIL NOW.

Certain companies want to line their pockets with our money. Comcast. Time Warner Cable. Verizon. 

These are all cable companies, and they’d like to continue business as usual, only on the internet.

Cable works like this: you buy a basic package of channels that may or may not include stuff you want to watch. If you want more, you pay for them. If you don’t have enough money to purchase a channel package, too bad.

What if the internet was run like cable TV? What if your provider could sell you a web package that didn’t include tumblr or your favorite blog? What if they could block the sites of their competitors and prevent you from seeing political opinions they disagreed with?

And to people who own those blogs and webcomics and are already strapped to sell stuff on the internet - What if the cable companies could demand money from you in exchange for a fast loading time, leaving you with a slow connection if you couldn’t pay? What if the big companies like Wal-mart were able to pay this fee and their sites loaded much faster than yours? What if your site was blocked entirely because AT&T decided they didn’t like it?

What if your internet provider refused you service unless you used one of their approved devices? What if they then used that device to monitor you- and the law supported it?

It starts to sound like something out of a dystopian novel.

That’s the future we’re looking at right now unless something changes.Tumblr staff has kindly provided an easy way to help out.

Reblog! Be loud! Let everyone know about this so we can stand up to this indescribable greed and tell the giants that this 1984 trash doesn’t fly with us.

the foxes at the gym

  • dan over by the weights doing arm curls and matt standing next to her grinning at the camera
  • “this is my girlfriend. she could kill you. she could kill me. look at those biceps”

  • her teeth are bared and her hair is sticking to her face like she’s ready to murder someone

Can’t decide the name of the AU, there are too many good suggestions, but I’m putting all the stuff about this AU under #ship war au because it’s a literally ship war between Jarco’s kid and Starco’s kid :p

Also these are my headcanons about the AU

  • They are from different timelines. 
  • The daughter’s name is Elizabeth.(Thanks @themagnificentsonnyboy!) She comes from a timeline where Star and Marco get together in the future(duh), she went back in time because Glossaryck told her there is an anomaly in the time-space continuum.
  • In Jarco kid’s timeline, there was an event called “Stapocalypse” occurred a couple months after the school dance, when a mile-wide star-shape portal suddenly appeared in the night sky of Echo Creek, released all kinds of monsters to the Earth Dimension, societies collapsed in days and everyone went underground, and Star is nowhere to be found. Jarco kid is a scavenger on the surface, until he found a strange tape measure device under some rubble…
  • Oh and his name is Jam, which means Jackie and Marco… What? there’s no time for naming kids there’s an apocalypse happening!
  • The “no Magic” sign on Jam’s rifle is just a doodle he drew, the rifle shoots laser beams and has nothing to do with anti-magic.
  • There’s a running gag in the AU about Elizabeth’s cheek marks being mistaken as corn but it’s actually Fleur-de-lis.
  • Both Elizabeth and Jam are fighting for their lives, but fighting keeps getting themselves grounded, so all they do now is matchmaking, sometimes they debate over the internet too.
  • Elizabeth is 14 and Jam is 16.
  • These are my takes on the AU you can have your own headcanons about it.

If anyone want to make fanart/fanfic about the AU you are more than welcome to do so c:

THIS IS IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ

!!! Thank you to everyone who’s been reblogging this. You guys are wonderful. That said I’ve only had 2 commissions so far (for which I’m grateful, don’t be mistaken), so while this is great I’m not out of the woods yet so if you could try to continue reblogging it, it would be awesome :)

Because a housemate screwed me over I now owe nearly £2000 to various people and will soon owe more as rent and bills pile up. I am a student without a job (tho I am actively looking for one now) and my parents cannot support me. I only had enough saved up to carry me through the summer while paying my half of the rent and food for two people (as because of a recent accident, I take care of my boyfriend atm, until he’s knee surgery happens) and a cat. 

Now, my former housemate has run with money i gave her for rent and bills, having not paid them so I am not just behind on the money but have to cover outstanding water, electric and internet bills, as well unpaid rent and still be able to cover the next 4 months.

If you could please reblog this or commission me at all I would be eternally grateful. I know I don’t have many active followers but if any of you could guys could please reblog and help me out a little, I’d be really thankful

EDIT: Forgot to say this but I can do both fanart as well as anyone’s OC’s, creatures, monsters etc.

  • Just everything he’s ever done

  • The fact that when Grover finally tracked Percy down he wasn’t wearing any pants. Like, there was literally no reason for him to not have the fake feet and the jeans on. No actual reason for him to be free balling it. Percy just needed a shock apparently. Showing up in the middle of a hurricane with no pants, dramatic ass satyr I love him.

  • The fact that everyone just expected him to hear ‘the greek gods are real’ and move on?? why would no one let this boy be in shock omg
  • Zeus apparently had a thing for the fluffy 80′s hairstyles
  • “the real world is where the monsters are” 
  • The fact that Poseidon could have claimed Percy at literally any moment but he apparently decided he really needed that dramatic reveal during capture the flag.
  • When Zeus was feeling Extra Dramatic™ after Percy’s claiming so he started making it rain inside the camp boarders and everyone was lowkey freaking out
  • When Annabeth pulls off her invisible cap and declares she’s going on the quest with him and Percy was like, beyond unsurprised that she was there and didn’t even attempt to fight her 
  • Chiron forgot to give Percy a sword from his father for like, an entire month. 
  • Grover with those freaking flying shoes oh my God
  • Annabeth blushing literally any time Luke talks to her

  • Annabeth on a fury’s back

Post-Kerberos! Matt HC

★ When the rebellion group helped him escape, he just ended up sticking with them and eventually became one of the best fighters there???

★ He doesn’t have any idea where his dad is, but scavenges through old Galran tech to hopefully find out.

★ The group is pretty much amazed by humans and low-key terrified of them bc of Matt 

★ He dislocated his shoulder once and the group was like, “it’s horrible to see another one go,,,,” and Matt was just like “???? i can put it back in place????” 

  • Matt: Guys,,,,stop crying,,,,this can be fixed,,,,,
  • Rebellion leader: i saw a dear friend die bc of that, there is no survival
  • Matt: *silently puts in back in place*

★ He has a scar over his right eye bc of the Galra

★ The Galra also found out he needed glasses and basically went, “well we can’t have The Champions friend like this!” and injected some weird shit into his eyes. Matt no longer needs glasses, but his eyes change colors depending on his mood and who he’s talking too

★ Matt, talking to keith as his eyes turn red: And so– why the fuck are you pulling out your sword?

Keith, seeing Matt’s eyes turning yellow as he talks to Hunk: “Uhm guys? Are we sure that Matt isn’t Galra?”

  • “I am right here”

★ When he first heard of Voltron his main thought was, “Well that sounds lit” but when he hears that ‘The Champion’ aka Shiro is their leader, he immediately turns into that Mr.Krabs meme

★ Somehow some people find a picture of the paladins and everybody is just “???? the tiny one resembles matt”

★ Matt automatically realizes it’s Katie and that the red paladin is Keith and just,,,screams for roughly 5 hrs

★ Why is everyone he knows up in space? He has no fucking clue but w/e

★ Makes it a personal mission to track down Voltron for himself and the rebellion

★ They end up showing up eventually to make allies

★ The Paladins talk to some civilians first, so Allura and Coran meet up with the Rebellion leader

  • “Number 5?! How’d you get here so quickly??” “Funny story actually,,,”
  • The real Pidge shows up like 0.5 seconds later
  • Pidge//Katie, tearfully: “MATT”
  • Matt, nearly sobbing: Oh shit waddup

★ Keith screams at him for a solid 10 minutes before tearing up

  • “It’s okay. I know you’re gay and texan already, Keith”
  • “I fucking hate you”

★ There’s a tie between whether Pidge or Shiro cried more

★ Allura: I’m princess Allura and you are?
    Matt:
single and willing–i meAN MATT

 ★ **Takes in Katie’s appearance** “Well, one of us is going to have to change”

★ **Inspecting Shiro’s arm** “Yo, your weapon is just a bitch slap”

★ “,,,,,you guys do realize Allura just picked your lions off of your clothes right???” “No she–holy shit”

★ “whY DON’T YOUR LIONS HAVE SEAT BELTS?! YOU’RE GONNA DIE AT 6 SHIRO”

  • He essentially spends his time pointing out problems with basically everything tbh

★ “Why does Voltron represent the olympic rings??”

★ He realizes Keith has a crush on Lance in like a couple of days

  • “weLL I HEARD YOU GOT A SPECIAL SOMEONE ON THE SIDE, KEITH”
  • “Listen here, you piece of shit”

★ Slowly comes to the realization that he likes both Shiro and Allura

  • “Coran have you ever heard of a pickle?”

★ He helps Coran around the castle and stuff

  • “And this is the Teludav” “Y’all have fucking teletubbies here?”

★ Him and Hunk team up to annoy Shiro and Lance with puns

  • “I’m just over the moon with excitement”
  • “Aren’t you glad i’m not lion in the cold depths of space??”

★ Him and Slav get along pretty well

  • Shiro hates it

★ “In this timeline, there is a 42% chance of you getting together with the two of them.” “Thanks buddy”

★ “Why did you choose five kids to defend the universe there’s so many ways this could go wrong”

★ Him and Hunk set up the lions to play “What’s new pussycat?” 7 times with one “It’s not unusual” before resuming ‘What’s new pussycat?’

  • “For years, scientist have wondered if you can make 3 teens, 1 adult, and 3 aliens weep tears of joy by playing Tom Jones’ “It’s not unusual”.”

★ Lance is amazed by how smooth his skin is

  • Like, you’ve been in space for 2 years???? And majority of that was with the Galra??? Tell me your secret

★ Everyone figures out Matt’s crush on both Allura and Shiro and try to get them together

  • One plan consisted of a rock, 15 cups of nunvil, and a very upset bounty group.

★ Matt actually likes nunvil

★ The Lions all take a liking to him and everyone would be salty, but he looks adorable when he talks to them so they deal with it

★ Pidge voice: I’ve banned Hunk because he kept messing with my shit but now—
    Matt voice: yO I GOT MARIO KART RUNNING ON THIS

★ He appreciates the fact that Hunk points out all the weird shit that’s going on while everyone else just accepts it

★ “Do you think i could install the internet to my mind?”
★ **sees all the upgrades Pidge added to Green** “yO—YO!”

★ Anytime Shiro or Allura do anything remotely romantic to him, ‘What the heck i gotta do’ starts blasting from the Green Lion

★  Allura called his ears cute once, and nobody saw him for 6 hrs until Lance found him frantically grabbing Altean romance novels while whispering, “what does it mean?!”

★ They go to a planet where it’s considered normal to have more than one partner

  • Coran convinces the newly dubbed “Poly triangle” to pretend they’re actually dating for reasons unknown
  • They pull it off so well that the Aliens eventually ask when they’re gonna get married
  • Everyone had vastly different reactions

★ “You guys are fighting Zarkon right? Why don’t you just turn him Zarkoff?”

★ Hunk voice: Um, guys, what are those things?
    Obviously annoyed Matt voice: Aliens. 
    Different ranges of offended Allura, Coran and Keith voices: Excuse me?

★ “I’m fucking tired. beam me up, Scotty”

★ Keith, kneeling down on one knee: “Matt, Allura, will you do me the honor of marrying my stupid brother?”

★ “Voltron? More like Dabtron.”

  • “How do I return a brother?”

★ “caTCH THESE GAY HANDS ZARKON”

★ Tried to convince Shiro to let him Pidge and Hunk install a laser gun sound effect or the lightsaber noise to his arm

★ Once, he finally found the courage to tell Shiro and Allura that he liked them but they mistook it as him saying he enjoyed their company or smth along those lines

  • He tried to throw himself out the airlock afterwards

★ Lotor eventually shows up and everyone is tense bc he’s shown interest in the Blue Lion

★ Lotor sees Matt, and just pushes Lance out of the way: Hello there ;)

  • Everyone pretends not to notice Shiro’s eye twitch and Allura breaking the weapon she was holding
  • Lance was offended at first but seeing their reactions made it worth it

★ Matt is oblvious to Lotor’s attempts though

  • Everytime he gets close, Matt just assumes it’s some weird galra thing

★ “Raindrops on roses, Allura’s white hair, Shiro’s back muscles and Allura’s eyes. These two could probably kick his ass and they’re a few of Matt’s favorite things”

★ Obviously exasperated Pidge voice: You guys just need to bone
    Stern Matt voice: What did you say?
    Pleading Hunk voice: Please don’t say it again
    Not Caring Pidge voice: I said you guys need to bone
    Shocked, Furious Matt voice: B O N E!?

★ They visit a planet with very tall aliens and of course shenanigans ensure

★ Keith voice: Y’know Allura, Shiro, you should probably hold Matt’s hand, so he can’t get lost everyone around here is pretty tall

  • **Disappointed, obviously knows what you’re doing Shiro Glare**
  • Completely oblivious, already grabbing Matt’s hand Allura voice: Of course! We wouldn’t want that!”
  • **Undignified, silent squeal from Matt**

★ Hunk voice: The stars sure are beautiful tonight
    Lance voice: Y’know what else is beautiful?
    Pidge and Keith voices: A loving relationship between Matt, Shiro and Allura

★ Eventually, the time comes where there’s a serious fight that both Shiro and Allura have to go through alone, and Matt freaks tf out and terribly confesses to the both of them:

  • “Okay, listen tf up. I can’t do that dramatic thing where I pull you down and kiss you and say, ‘Come back to me’ since there’s two of you. But I will say that I love you both, and if you dont come back i’m taking out the entire Galran Empire myself”

★ Allura and Shiro are both shocked but Matt is already fast walking away so they can’t say anything

  • They come back and make a beeline for him
  • “LISTNE IVE KNOWN HIM LONGER PRINCESS”
  • “I QUIZNAKING SAVED YOUR BUTT BACK THERE I GET TO KISS HIM FIRST”
  • Allura makes it to him first

★ Keith cries, Pidge and Hunk pull out a confetti cannon they made for this occasion, Lance falls to his knees in victory, Coran pulls out a cake. Everything is good in the Universe.

anonymous asked:

Hello, I'm the anon who's freaking out about being thrown into adulthood, and thank you for your previous help. 1.) How do I mamage/budget a minimum wage salary? 2.) I've never been great with any sort of organization, but would you mind teaching me about home organization and important paper organization?

Okay, so this post will be about budgeting on minimum wage, and later in the day I will also post about paper organization. Enjoy!

Budgeting on Minimum Wage

Overview

The average minimum wage in the US is $7.25/hr. Even working full time at 40 hours a week, that’s only a profit of $290 before taxes. This is not a fair living wage! You are worth way more than this amount! I strongly encourage you to start looking for another job that pays better, look for something around the $10-$15 range. 

While $7.25 is atrocious, thousands of people around the world support families on much less. If they can do it while supporting children, so can you! To live off a minimum wage budget you need to declare yourself independent. If your parents are still claiming you as a dependent YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS. I also recommend that you have the highest amount possible taken out of your taxes so that you get money back from your state at the end of the year, instead of being in debt to them.

What I’ve done is come up with a budgeting plan based off some made up factors and my own personal experience.

Housing

1. City life. Forget about the city! Apartments located in cities can be three times as expensive as apartments in small towns or villages. On top of the extra expense, they’re much smaller and have less amenities included. I’d much rather live in a one bedroom apartment with a dishwasher and a conveniently located Laundromat, than a literal closet with no windows on a fifth floor walkup. Look for apartments twenty minutes to a half hour outside of your closest city. Now you have the close conveniences of a city, with none of those pesky city prices that your budget can’t handle.

2. College towns. Shop around and look at apartments by local colleges. Large colleges with have apartment complexes within walking distance of the school grounds. Landlords know that college students have less money (you might even be a college student yourself) and adjust their prices accordingly. Even apartments next to ivy league schools are priced this way, so don’t be discouraged by the institution’s “prestige”.

3. Locale. Your safety is more important than your bank account. It doesn’t matter if you live in Section 8 housing or in an affluent suburb. Some apartment complexes and neighborhoods are just safer than others. I live in a heavily populated and upper middle class suburb, and the first year I moved in, a drunk woman tried to throw a beer bottle at my car. Thankfully this is the only time this happened to me, but it made me feel unsafe in my environment. Before signing a lease, walk or drive around your prospective home’s neighborhood at night. Take in the atmosphere, and make sure it’s one where you could comfortably run to the local supermarket at 10:30pm and pick up toilet paper.

4. Roommates. Living on minimum wage requires that you find one or two roommates to help split the rent. The more the better! Get together with your more responsible friends, so at least you’re living with people whose company you enjoy. There are lots of “roommate wanted” forums and message boards for you to browse on the internet, but always bring a responsible adult with you before meeting a stranger. Please. Bring your mom if you have too.

Food

1. Low-spoon food. I created this post a few months ago which offers lots of suggestions about cooking and shopping on a budget.

2. Online recipes. Here are some of my favorite online Tumblr cookbook resources. 

3. I also regularly update my cooking on a budget tag. 

Misc Expenses

1. Gas. Shop around and find the cheapest gas in your area. Avoid gas stations next to colleges, highways, and in touristy areas. Look into getting as gas rewards card from your favorite supermarket. I get 10 cents off a gallon with Stop & Shop every time I do a big shop. 

2. Dollar store. Get to know your local dollar and bargain stores. You can buy everything from pots and pans to bed sheets there. These stores often sell bulk ramen for $1 and large cans of crushed tomatoes for 75 cents. That’s enough food for you to live off of for several days. When shopping, I make three grocery store stops to ensure that I spend the least amount possible on my pantry needs. I go Dollar Store, Stop and Shop, and then to my local organic grocery store. I’m going to make a list of things that I buy at Dollar Stores and things that I don’t buy at Dollar Stores soon!

3. Cable. We are living in the digital age- you don’t need cable television. Use Netflix or Hulu or whatever. It will save you tons of $$. 

4. Internet. As far as internet speed goes, if you’re living with roommates you will probably need a higher speed. Living by yourself, choose a lower one. Most internet companies offer large discounts to new subscribers. These typically only last a year, but will save you serious money. Make sure to take note of when this discount expires, and contact the company before it does. If you don’t, they’ll begin charging you the full amount without notice.

5. Verizon. I just want to take a moment to talk about how much I love Verizon because they have literally saved me so much money in the three years I’ve been with them. After you sign a contract with a new internet company, they charge you a bunch of ridiculous fees like “activation fees” and “installation fees”. I called Verizon and was like “I’m a poor college student, I can’t afford this” and they were like “don’t worry, we’ll waive the fee”. I signed a two year contract with them that saved me $80 on a high-speed internet bill per month (my price being only 50.99 a month). After the contract expired I call them and they put me on a month to month, keeping the price absolutely the same. TLDR- get Verizon if you can.

6. Utility. Get on a monthly budget with whatever utility company services your new apartment. Although it may seem like the cheaper option, paying the actual amount of electricity you spend per month is the more expensive. It’s also unpredictable, and a minimum wage budget won’t allow for it. See this for more info.

7. Amazon. I buy a lot of my beauty, cleaning, and cat products online. Amazon offers Prime shipping free for a year with a student email address, and then offers it at a greatly reduced price after the year. If you are a student, snap up that free deal ASAP. If it’s in your budget, I’d greatly recommend investing in Amazon Prime.

8. Saving money. It’s so important to attempt to break way from the “paycheck to paycheck” vicious cycle. Living this way does not allow for emergency expense money, and trust me, sometime soon you will need emergency expense money. Your cat might get sick or your car may die, whatever it is, it’s always smart to have at least $500 squirreled away. I’m gonna level with you, things have been tight for my budget and I haven’t been able to save anything for the past three months. But this month I will!

Example Budgets

Full Time

Working with the $7.25/hr and 40hr/week model, here’s an example budget for living on minimum wage. That’s $1,160 a month without taxes.

Housing: Let’s say you’re sharing an apartment with two close friends, the rent being $1,500 without any amenities. That rent split three ways is $500 each.

Gas I commute twenty minutes every day, and I drop about $20-$25 a week on gas. That’s $100 on gas a month.

Food: I do one big shopping a month with my boyfriend. We drop around $180 and that’s including toiletries and soap and stuff. So maybe you’ll spend about $100 a month on all your shopping needs.

Cable/internet:  Hopefully you took my advice and skipped cable. Let’s say you’re paying around $50 per month for internet. Split three ways that’s $17 each.

Laundry: Hopefully you’re not like me and are only spending around $20 on laundry per month.

Random expenses: Because there always are some. Let’s just tack on another $100.

With everything added up, you still have around $290 left before taxes! That money can go into a savings account, and after several months, you’ll have that $500 worth of emergency money saved.

Part Time

Working with the $7.25/hr and 25hr/week model, here’s an example budget for living on minimum wage. That’s $725 without taxes.

Housing: In this case, you need to look for apartments in the $800-900 range. In my area, one bedroom apartments go for around $1000, so you may need to get creative with your roommate (I don’t think you could have more than one roommate in this situation). Buy dividers to split the bedroom or studio in half! Let’s say your rent is $850 with nothing included, that’s $425 each.

Gas You’re still looking at a large gas bill per month, so it may be more inexpensive to ride a bike or use public transportation. Let’s say you use public transportation, and spend around $50 a month on that. Or maybe you and your roommate can split gas expenses and share a car?

Food: Pinch those pennies! Use some of those budget cookbooks I linked above to help you cook healthy and delicious meals for under $4 each. See if you can only spend $80 a month on groceries.

Cable/internet:  Hopefully you took my advice and skipped cable. Let’s say you’re paying around $50 per month for internet. Split two ways is $25 each.

Laundry: Hopefully you’re not like me and are only spending around $20 on laundry per month.

Random expenses: Because there always are some. Let’s just tack on another $100.

That leaves you $25 to put in your bank account, if that. This is a paycheck to paycheck situation, and you will probably need to get another source of income to feel secure. But you can still do it!

You looked down at the small tattoo of a lightning bolt on your ring finger for comfort as you threw up in the S.T.A.R. Labs restroom. It was Barry’s idea, seeing as a wedding band would’ve raised suspicions. It’s been nearly two years since you and Barry started dating. And it’s been about six months since you two were secretly got married. Your relationship was something unplanned, but neither of you had any doubts. 

The only problem with the marriage and relationship was that your father, the great Harrison Wells, has yet to be informed about it. Every chance you got to tell him, there was always something that ruined the moment. You knew the more you kept it a secret, the more strained your relationship with your father would be. The mere thought of losing your father made you want to hurl, but that wasn’t the reason as to why you were having morning sickness.

After a few minutes, you got up and composed yourself, fixing your hair in a bun and wiping away your smudged makeup. You quickly left the restroom and went back to your desk, pretending as if nothing happened. 

“Caitlin, please check on (Y/N).” Your father said as he monitored the computers, watching Barry’s every movement.

“But Barry’s on a mission-” Caitlin began, but your father shook his head.

“Armed robbery… Barry’s got this.” Caitlin gave you a soft smile before helping you up.

Caitlin knew exactly was wrong with you, but she didn’t want to pry. You wish you invited her to be a witness to your wedding, but since the decision was so spontaneous, Joe and Iris took on the roles. 

“Every thing seems to be in order. You don’t have a fever…” Caitlin trailed off as she cleaned off her thermometer. “Did you have anything bad last night?” She asked. 

You shook your head as you thought about last night. Barry spent the night trying to make you comfortable and catered to your every need. He even raced to Star City to get Big Belly Burger, the one that always put in extra fries. But you definitely didn’t eat anything that didn’t sit well with you. If anything, it sat quite nicely. 

“She seems fine.” Caitlin called out to your father as Barry sped right in. His eyes widened as he took note of you sitting on the hospital bed.

“You okay?” He asked, worry in his eyes. What he really wanted to ask was: is the baby okay?

You nodded. “Just threw up because of something. No biggie.” 

“Yes biggie. You could have an ulcer, or some gallbladder diseases, or a brain tumor, (Y/N)!” Cisco yelled out. You raised your eyebrows at him. 

And Caitlin gave him a strange look. “Did you look up vomiting causes on WebMD?” She asked. Cisco gave her a sneaky grin and she rolled her eyes. “I promise, you have none of that. Don’t worry… I’m talking to you, Dr. Wells.” You all chuckled as your father’s panic was easily seen on his face.

“I mean she could be pregnant.” Your father stated. Everyone just froze on the spot. You and Barry both looked at him quizzically. None of you were sure if he was joking or not, but the thought of your father finding out this way shook you to your core. “What?”

“W-why do you say that?” You asked, your voice shaking but you attempted to keep it straight. 

“People take pictures, (Y/N). Videos, even.” Your father began. “And the funniest thing occurred to me when I saw these videos and photos on the internet… I thought hmm.. why is Barry always running around near (Y/N)’s apartment? You can put together a puzzle like that as quickly as a speedster, can’t you? You randomly getting a lightning tattooed on your ring finger. Barry always worrying about you. You always worrying about Barry. Not to mention we have cameras.” 

You and Barry knew the cat was out the bag, but neither of you dared to glance at each other. You both kept your eyes trained on your father. “So how long have you two been together?” Your dad asked.

“Two and a half years.” Barry asked, rubbing the back of his neck. 

“Anything else I might want to know?” 

You slowly tip toed over to your husband as you interlaced your fingers. “Um… Six months ago we eloped.” You saw your father’s jaw clench but it slowly released. “And I’m three and a half weeks pregnant.” You and Barry flinched awaiting your father’s wrath, but none came. 

“That part I put together on my own seeing as you’re almost always tired, hungry, and if you aren’t at a calmed state, your enraged. Much like your mother.” You smiled, remembering the memories you had of her, a few tears escaped your eyes and Barry rubbing your back soothingly. “I’m mad that I didn’t get to walk my baby girl down the aisle, but we can always redo that part. Barry take care of my girl. And… for the love of God, Try Harder To Be Discreet.

You walked over to hug your father, crying quietly into his arms. But then Cisco cleared his throat. “We’re definitely redoing that wedding. Barry, what were you thinking? I wasn’t your best man, dude!”

what actually is lois and clark

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman is a live-action Superman TV show from the 90s. The same Superman story we all love, Kal-El of Krypton was sent to Earth as an infant and grows up with the Kents (though in this show, Jonathan Kent is still alive and well). It stars Dean Cain as Clark Kent/Superman and Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane.

Originally posted by clarksalive

It’s sort of different from other Superman shows in that the relationship between Lois and Clark is at the forefront. It’s almost a love triangle (but not quite) with Clark, Lois, and Superman. Clark is also very different from most portrayals. Most of the time, Clark Kent is considered the secret identity, the person he pretends to be when he needs information. But in this show, he is Clark. Superman is just his job.

Anyway, the real charm of Lois & Clark is in its… 90s-ness. It’s silly, and corny, and never quite takes itself seriously. The plots are cartoony, but fun. A five part arc revolves around a frog-eating clone of Lois Lane running around while the real Lois has amnesia and thinks she’s a lounge singer. The special effects are delightfully bad. Everyone writes their reports for the Daily Planet on their big clunky computers. The internet barely exists.

The real reason I love Lois & Clark is it’s just… fun to watch. It’s stupid and it’s amazing and laugh-out-loud ridiculous. I 100% recommend it.

On gate-keeping, “real witchcraft”, and...cooking?

Maybe it’s just the select posts that end up crossing my dash, but I feel like there’s been an uptick in posts in the witchcraft community about who’s a “real witch” and who isn’t. A lot of these posts also seem to propose that there’s some value in gate-keeping who qualifies as a witch or not.

I compare my witchery practice to cooking a lot and here’s another damn instance of it. 



Some folks are lucky enough to end up under the mentorship of top-notch chefs and get to absorb all that knowledge and experience. The number of folks who get to do that is TINY compared to the number of folks who are learning to be cooks.

Some folks are able to go to culinary school and learn a particular tradition or style of cooking, which gives them a base skill set to take with them into the restaurant world.

Some folks learn to cook by watching the TV shows on PBS or the Food Network and that’s how they get their initial instruction on the “right” way to do things. Some people learn to cook from their grandmothers or aunts and learn specific family traditions of cookery.

Some people learn from trying out recipes from the internet or reading recipes out of books.

EVERYONE IS STILL COOKING.

Not everyone *wants* to train under an expert chef and run a Michelin-starred restaurant. Not everyone *wants* to spend all of their time going to culinary school and working in the restaurant industry. Some people are happy being able to cook nice food on the weekends, or are happy to learn a few skills that noticeably improve their execution of otherwise mundane recipes.

ALL OF THESE PATHS ARE VALID.

Folks from different regions cook differently and use ingredients differently or use entirely different ingredients. Folks from other countries have different food traditions. Folks from areas that have been colonized may have had their food traditions interrupted and their recipes now aren’t the same as their ancestors’. What all these people do? IS STILL COOKING.

There are literally a million ways to make a dish and every person will do it a little or a lot differently. THIS IS OKAY. If you don’t like how someone made a dish? That’s fine, personal preference. But you don’t get to say they can’t cook just because what they did wasn’t to your taste.


People do witchcraft how they can and how they want. There are a million ways to caste a spell and not everyone wants to make being a witch the main aspect of their life. People moonlight. Some people take it more seriously than others. THIS IS OKAY. THESE PEOPLE ARE ALL STILL WITCHES.

Just because someone does something differently than you would or in a way that you don’t consider as witchy, doesn’t mean that the other person is doing it wrong. If you don’t like that someone else is doing, you don’t have to engage with them! But you don’t have the right to decide whether what they’re doing is real witchcraft or not.

This is a call out post

I want to warn people I am calling someone out. I don’t normally do this because calling someone out is wrong but I’m doing this for a friend who is be harassed and my character (plus theirs) being treated in a disgusting manner.

I’ve recently encounter this person on my friends blog after they had made a post about suicide being one of their trigger.
(Please read by numbers they go from bottom to top)

REMEMBER THIS PART WHERE THEY SAY THEIR 16 YEARS OLD I WILL COME BACK TO THAT!

As you can see she was extremely disrespectful to my friend by mentioning something that triggered her and instead of just admitting it and saying sorry, she fought me on the subject that just made her sound even more dumb.

Another thing that really disturbed me was her over sexualizing of Mono. Mono is 11 years old, a child, Pastel is a 16 year old teenager. This is borderline pedophile. Yes, Mono a character but he is a child non the less and she is a teenager (as she said) So that is wrong on the many many levels.

After seeing this, it reminded me of something Skoop had to told me earlier that day.

LIKE SERIOUSLY?! CRAY IS 7 YEARS OLD AND MONO IS 11 YEARS OLD! How sick can one person be?!

So here is where it is explained about Mono is sexual involvement. I also underlined the fact she is not ok with sexualizing of Mono because he is a CHILD!

Grammar nazi for a second but *purpose

Of course that’s what she meant. Also “making” them is “forcing” them, idiot. So not only is she sexualizing a child but now she wants to force sex among these bitties for her own entertainment, OH AND REMEMBER SHE IS UNDERAGE!

OH LOOK BITTIES ARE ASEXUAL MEANING NO SEX! She doesn’t understand or care for my friend’s rules for her own characters apparently.

After she had told them that her characters are ASEXUAL. She still ask which ones she can force to have sex :T I’m so disgusted I could vomit.

Here is another explain of her being gross and disgusting not only to Mono but to Cray as well.

So I found out that my friend isn’t the only person Pastel as been a major ass too.

Here is her regretting helping someone. Like how low can you go of being an ass the you regret HELPING someone.

This just made me laugh of how stupid Pastel sounds in this. She’s legit mad because Purple didn’t want her help and want to do thing on her own. But because Pastel was rejected she had to throw a fit over not being able to “help” this person. She also threw at purple stating her art was better and she was going to run them out a business. Like seriously? They kindly refused and she went ape shit crazy on them. Also I’m sorry for the “friends” she tagged because they are associated with a crazy bitch like her.

So @pastel-heart-queenxo if you are reading this, BACK THE FUCK OFF SERIOUSLY. We get it you’re bossy bitch #1, sexualizing underage children, doing nsfw stuff while being underage yourself. WE get it but seriously you are just gross and a bother so please just stop. Maybe take some time off the internet (or just tumblr) and grow up before coming back.
