17 December: Officially finished with the semester. I haven’t posted any original content in over a month because of how chaotic school has been, and I’ve been waiting to get my design journal back so I can post sketches from it. For everyone still taking finals, best of luck!
His mental health is a horrible mess, okay. He is absolutely not fine.
Finding his brother didn’t change that. He needs SO MUCH comfort and reassurance
He desperately wants to be the happy ‘God 707’ he used to be on the chat for MC so he winds up bottling his emotions
But that always backfires because eventually he snaps and confines himself to his room, engulfed in work
HE DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO PROPERLY OPEN UP. HE JUST CAN’T
He struggles to verbally vent so he and MC agree to email each other when he’s at his worst
They’ll be emailing each other for hours in the middle of the night in separate rooms until he calms down enough and MC can go to his room and pull him into a tight hug. They sit there in content silence, he rarely continues to vent to MC in person
The only time they have deep conversations face to face is in a pillow fort at 2am when MC is half asleep
He still does that thing where he tries to push MC away because he’s afraid of burdening them. SO MC just has to trap him into hugs and reassure him so he snaps out of it gradually
bUT HE HAS LOTS OF GOOD DAYS
HE WORKS REALLY HARD TO KEEP HIS MENTAL HEALTH IN CHECK
He and MC carry an 'emergency pack’ with small things to calm them down if their depression or anxiety acts up randomly
They keep pictures, honey buddha chips, portable MP3 player, encouraging notes from each other and memes in there. Just silly things that cheer them up when they’re not together and struggling.
He doesn’t break down much, he just becomes numb to the world and closes off. MC is the light that guides him out because he REALLy wants to make them happy and look after them
When he loses his enthusiasm he and MC will scour the internet for new hobbies to ~inspire~ him. he tries embroidery at some point and creates a really intricate pattern but if you look closely it’s just a bunch of dicks.
Probably sends it to Yoosung as a birthday present.
He’s like a chILD, HE JUST NEEDS GENTLE CARE AND DISTRACTIONS
Forget heelies to escape the feelies HE WILL TAKE MC ON HOUR LONG DRIVES TO THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE SO THEY CAN STARE AT THE STARS they get lost and Jumin has to send a rescue helicopter
He tries to serenade MC but he’s a hORRIBLE SINGER
They’ll be waltzing like the pair of dorks they are in the living room one day and he’d join in the song chorus
TRIPPING OVER EACH OTHERS FEET AND MC CRYING AT HIS OBNOXIOUS SCREECHING
HE pURPOSEFULLY MAKES HIS SINGING WORSE LOUDER JUST SO HE CAN WATCH MC LAUGH
Says 'meow you’ instead of ‘love you’ because he’s a cute dork and gets flustered when expressing genuine emotions
2 weeks of living with this dork and you’ll be able to diss people in like 15 different languages
Is MC were a female he’D LOVE FOR THEM TO SWITCH GENDER ROLES
HE’D WEAR SOME CUTE FLORAL PRINT SKIRT AND HAVE MC DO HIS MAKE UP
GETS MC TO WEAR A SUIT, TIE AND COOL SHADES
He will make a mess of flirting with random men when he crossdesses to get MC to laugh probably flashes them afterwards though
LOUNGING AROUND IN MATCHING CAT ONSIES AND FLUFFY SLIPPERS BUT ONLY HOLD HANDS BECAUSE IT GETS TOO HOT ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) IF THEY CUDDLE
‘Meme midnight’ EVERYDAY which is self explanatory
If MC ignores him he hacks into their phone and creates a bug that enables them to only scroll through pictures of him and listen to his banshee wailing singing
TRIPS TO THE ZOO AND THEME PARKS EVERY WEEKEND
If yOU THINK HE WONT GET HIS FACE PAINTED AS A TIGER AT THE ZOO YOU ARE GRAVELY MISTAKEN
He’s probably really into ‘creepy’ insects and loves snakes bUT IS MORTIFIED OF SPIDERS
He’ll try to play it off but some zookeeper will have a tarantula out to hold and he wiLL SPRINT TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ZOO
TRIES TO TAKE A SELFIE WITH MC ON A ROLLERCOASTER BUT DROPS HIS PHONE RIP
He just whips out one of his 5 backup phones from his pocket though because it happens every time
CRYING OVER DISNEY FILMS AND SINGING ALONG UNTIL THE ENTIRE NEIGHBOURHOOD IS BANGING AT THE DOOR WITH PITCHFORKS
BEANIE BABIES COLLECTION
The back of his car looks like a goddamn toy store
Interior of his car is covered in cat print accessories
They’d go to cooking classes together and be banned after he tried to make a Buddha chip stir fry and burns the building down
Takes a picture with MC outside the burning building and posts it to the group
Captions it as ‘this building burns just like my desire to devour MC like a Buddha chip’ ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
(ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ MC throws his phone into the fucking fire
100% would adopt a cat at some point
If MC was allergic to animals he’d stop at nothing. He’d make a whole colony of robotic animals starting with some really cute cat and gradually scaling up
It would be fucking terrifying though because MC would come home one day and there’s a GODDAMN ROBOTIC SHARK LYING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LIVING ROOM
SAEYOUNG WE ABSOLUTELY DO NOT NEED A FUCKING SHARK OH my gOD IS THAT A diNOSAUR MODEL. SAEYOUNG YOU WATCHED JURASSIC WORLD THIS IS A BAD IDEa
Jumin funds his robotic animal projects because he’s been promised a collection of cat models for some new line of business rip Jaehee
I’ve been saying I’d do another one for the last, oh, two hundred followers I think?
Finally, I noticed I have OVER HALF A THOUSAND FOLLOWERS OH MY G O D WHERE DID YOU ALL COME FROM?! *Ahem* So I can’t really put it off any longer. XP
You old hats know the drill, but for all the newcomers, the rules are as follows:
1.) You must be following me. More specifically, you must be following my writing blog, since I wanna avoid spamming my personal blog with this giveaway this time around. ^^;
2.) Every like and reblog counts towards one entry in the giveaway. You can only like this post once (until I add to it, that is), but you can reblog it as many times as you wish~ For every like/reblog, I will record your url, which gives you more chances to win a giveaway slot!
3.) This giveaway will run until January 24th to January 31st.You have until then to get your like and reblogs in. And, to prevent any confusion on the subject, I will be going by American Eastern Standard Time. So when it hits midnight on the East Coast and the date changes to February 1st, the contest is over. Make a note!
4.) At the end of the giveaway, I will choose three urls and write them a medium-length drabble (about 7 pages minimum) about a prompt of their choice. The prompt does not have to be about Miraculous Ladybug, but at the same time, I can’t write for something I’m not a fan of. Please keep that in mind when making your requests. Also, there may be things I will NOT write, so if I turn your request down, you’re free to request something else.
5.) The giveaway winners have until February 5th to contact me about prompt requests. I need a deadline for this just to make sure they don’t take me forever to do. ^^;

Hopefully these tips will help you with note-taking, good luck and have fun with your work!
Create your notes in accordance to your desires.
Don’t worry about what other people’s notes looks like, focus on what’s best for you and what you learn best from. If that’s using your notes from class/lectures, use them! If that’s simple black ink, mono-colour notes, that’s perfect! If it’s re-writing them and adding illustrations and colour, do it!
Find what’s best for you. Remember that these are your notes and that they should help you revise, so make them as easy as possible to understand and learn from.
Add colour/ colour-code- I’ve found that using two colours, one to highlight or underline the headings and primary points/most relevant information and an other to highlight or underline the subheadings and secondary points/ information that backs up primary points really helps me in my studies. In addition, using a colour scheme or colour coding can help neaten and organise the information, making it easier to remember and less confusing, reducing the chances of muddling up bits of information.
Use sticky notes/ stickers- this can make your notes look neat, detailed and organised. Plus they add character. You could use these to add additional information, questions to stretch your understanding or to highlight the relevant and most important points. They also look really cute, so there’s that too!
Add doodles/ illustrations/ diagrams- these can be really helpful, especially with science subjects. Maybe adding a diagram of the human heart, an illustration to help explain a process or doodles to help you remember a definition can aid your studying and help you to understand more easily and effectively, especially if you’re a visual learner.
Use one colour- multiple colours can be distracting and off putting to some people, making their notes look too confusing, messy and busy. By using one colour, it doesn’t distract you from the information you need to remember and can boost your understanding.
Don’t re-write your notes if you don’t want to.
You don’t have to write out your notes again if you have perfectly good notes already made from classes and if you don’t revise by re-writing notes. To be honest, I hardly ever re-write my notes after I’ve made them in class, I may add additional information or questions to stretch and test my understanding, but I make my notes how I find them easy to revise from during my class. I personally don’t learn effectively from re-writing my notes over again, and any many people feel the same. Remember, if you don’t have to and don’t need to, then there’s no shame in not re-writing it!
That isn’t to say however, that you shouldn’t re-write your notes! Do it if it helps you learn, or even if you just want to make them look pretty! There are times where I do re-write my notes (albeit a small number of times) and I have loved how I have made them look better and easier to understand.
The point is, make your notes how you want to make them. You see so many beautiful notes on tumblr which can go one of two ways-
Feeling inspired to re-create beautiful notes;
Feeling pressured to re-create beautiful notes.
If it makes you stressed or you don’t have enough time, don’t re-write them. If you want to or it helps you learn, do re-write them, it’s up to you and there are plenty of gorgeous examples of how to do so!
I don’t think any group can be overrated. Whatever company or history, each idol works hard and it takes an element of luck to make it big. BTS are a huge group, but just because you don’t like them (and I personally don’t) does not mean they are underrated. Same with EXO. They all worked hard to get to the amazing point they are at, and they all gave up so much. How can they be overrated with that?
