take your trash out with you

You know, I was doing just fine. Sure the water was starting to boil over a little, and there were some plants that needed watering. I’ll be the first to admit that the dust was getting too thick and the floors needed mopping. I was just going to take the trash out, I really was getting around to it. Things were messy, but I had a handle on it. Everything was okay.

Until you barged in. You with your sugary smugness and electrifying nonchalance, your goofy veneer of wit and laughter. It was as if you hadn’t even been gone, like the place was yours and nothing had changed. You noticed the new curtains and the different shade of paint on the walls, complimented them even, as if I had asked. You took from the fridge and wiped your muddy boots all over the floors. You had the nerve to light a goddamn match and enjoy a fat cigar. You filled my vision with thick plumes until I couldn’t breathe, laughed when I couldn’t find the strength to speak. And then you left.

Now everything is on fire, everything is up in flames and collapsing all around me.

I was doing fine.

Why did you have to come back and destroy it all over again?

How to be a courteous hotel guest

Hello! My name is Claude and I am a Texas cosplayer who also workers as a hotel housekeeper. I haven’t been working in housekeeping for very long but I’ve seen the impact of all sorts of guest and I have to say that Anime/Comic Con attendees are honestly some of the messiest guests and it puts a lot of strain on the housekeeping staff. Did you know we are warned in advance about you guys? I even have horror stories about con guest. This job is very physically demanding and we’re under a lot of pressure to meet our room cleaning times. Below are some tips about being a more helpful and respectful guest. These are only a suggestion. Not rules. Courtesy is a choice.

1.) Before leaving don’t make the bed. We understand you mean well, but all sheets need to be washed and therefore the beds stripped. The best way to leave the bed? Place all the sheets on top of the bed and remove the pillowcases from the pillows. You can leave them bunched up, that’s fine.

2.) Place all your trash into trash bags, tie it up, and leave the trash next to the door before leaving.That way we can just toss it in the trash cart and move on. Leave anything that we can vacuum. You can also leave the dirty towels next to the door before leaving.

3.) Please check all the drawers, cabinets, and closets to make sure you have all your things. Anything found will be placed into lost and found for 90 days. If you’ve left something, just call the hotel and tell them what you’ve lost and in what room.

4.) If you place a DND sign on your door we CANNOT ENTER at all. We mark it down and move on. If you later remove it and decide that you want service call the front desk and let them know because housekeeping usually end up leaving anywhere from 3pm-5pm.

5.) When housekeeping refreshes your room we make the bed, refill amenities, place fresh towels, take out trash, and do a quick wipedown. Don’t want your bed made? Need extra amenities? Need extra trash bags? Etc? Let us know! We leave notepads and pens in every room and you can write down any instructions for us. Ex: “No need to make the bed, just fresh towels and extra shampoos please.” “Extra trash bags and bath towels please, no more shampoos please.”

6.) Housekeeping cannot make the beds when you have personal belongings on the bed. Simple things like clothes and towels we move while making the bed then put back but anything else we DO NOT TOUCH. Laptops, jewels, suitcases, etc. Please keep this in mind if you want your bed made.

7.) Please do not leave your hair curlers and straighteners plugged in the bathroom. Guest always leave them connected usually next to the sink with water all over and it’s a safety hazard. Housekeeping will usually unplug them but I, personally, fear that maybe one day we won’t reach the room in time.

8.) If a hotel is Pet friendly, you still have to let the hotel know that you are bringing a furry friend along. We need to know what rooms need the pet treatment. What if the next guest is allergic and we weren’t notified about the previous guest?

9.) Try and bring some supplies to clean up after your pet. We’ve had guest allow their pets to pee and poop on the carpets and it not only affects the housekeeping staff but maintenance staff as well.

10.) Most hotels are non-smoking and we ask that you please respect that. We are trained to find out if a guest has been smoking and when we catch it, you get a $250 charge. Don’t risk it!! There are smoking areas that you can ask about.

11.) Have left over alcohol that you can’t take with you when you leave? You don’t have to throw it away. It’s very common for guest to leave them as a tip for housekeeping staff.

12.) Yes! You can tip housekeeping! It’s not required. But we constantly get tips and little notes to thank us for our work and we deeply appriciate it. (I actually have all my thank you notes!) How much you tip is up to you. Ive gotten anywhere from change to 25$.

13.) If you’re sick (like influenza, strep throat, cold, etc.) let the hotel staff know. That way we can notify the housekeepers to take extra precautions. (mask, gloves, etc) and provide a deeper clean. (I actually got Influenza B and ended up in the hospital from this one!)

14.) You don’t have to leave your room if housekeeping comes by to refresh it.  You can stay and tell us how to make your stay more comfortable. Plus, we appreciate the conversation.

15.) Please notify ANY of the hotel staff when you encounter a problem. (bedbugs, clogged toilet, broken lamps, etc) We are committed to make your stay as perfect as possible and can be reached at anytime for help.

16.) If you throw up or bleed (excessively)  in the room please notify us as soon as possible and we can have maintenance come clean up. Please do not leave it for us to clean until after your stay. It causes stains that won’t come out and a deeply embedded smell in the room.

17.) Things you can ask for that guest don’t usually know about (can vary by hotel. Some hotels require purchase.): cribs, extra blankets, shower caps, slippers, toothpaste, toothbrush, tampons, pads, razors.

That’s about all I can think of so far. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about how to be a more courteous guest or anything about hotel service. I’ll be happy to help to the best of my ability. I cant wait to see you all at San Japan! :)

Maximize your sleeping time (aka how to be a lazy asshole and sleep in)

Would you prefer waking up at 7:50 than at 7? Or maybe you’re a Tired College Student™ like me who’s in their second semester just waiting for the sweet release of death? Either way, today I’m going to be v non-studyblr and show you how you too can be a lazy asshole and sleep in.

  • Lay out your clothes the night before. If you feel like trash sweater + leggins takes 2 mins to put on and feels like PJs
    • If you shower at night just sleep in your leggins tbh.
  • If you have bangs do them the night before and sleep on your back. If you can’t keep still, wear headphones bc they’ll keep you from turning. It’s better for your back anyway.
  • Brush your hair before bed and tie it up so that it’s faster to brush in the morning.
    • Tbh smoothing the ends and the top layer works just as well.
    • Get a Tangle Teezer. It’ll save you so much time.
  • If you plan on using dry shampoo, do It the night before. It’ll absorb way more oil and you just have to brush it and go in the morning.
  • If you wear makeup, have all your basics in one easy to reach place.
    • If you take the bus or sth just do your makeup there. 
    • If you need to wet your beauty blender, carry a mini spray bottle of water in your makeup bag.
  • Carry rollerballs of perfume in your backpack so that you don’t have to waste time putting it on.
  • Have your fucking backpack ready the night before.
  • Have a designated place near the door for the shit you need to carry (keys, glasses, USBs, idk). If you know what shoes you’re gonna wear, put them in front of the door and leave everything you need inside of them.
  • Putting on a coat is faster if it’s hung on a chair than if it’s hung on a hanger.
  • Breakfast is essential. Doesn’t mean you can’t just take it with you and eat it during break or on your way to school.
    • Make it the night before and put it in the fridge if it’’s temperature sensitive. Avocado toast can be turned into a mess free sandwich js. Also you can make overnight oats in a mason jar and take them with you.
  • Same with coffee. Honestly at this point just carry a bottle of it in your backpack. It lasts for like three days.

And that’s how to be a Slightly More Rested Mess. I realize this is not for everyone but hey, desperate times call for desperate meassures.

How do you fall back in love with life?

  1. clean your room.  clean space, uncluttered space, space that doesn’t have miasma clinging to it can work wonders.  clean the dishes.  sweep.  take out the trash.  peel the clothes off the floor and wash them, and then actually fold/hang them.  take a long shower.  scrub behind your knees.  brush your teeth.  (this can be utterly exhausting, but try to get it done in a day, if you can.  the end result is worth it.)
  2. pull out your notebook.  it doesn’t need to be a new notebook, but preferably one that you don’t usually write in, or that you haven’t touched in a while.  fuck moleskins.  the yellow legal pad will work fine.  sit in your room, or in the park, or in the library, and write a list.  count clouds.  describe all the colors that you see, and note patterns that arise.  sketch the cracks in the walls.  note the shape light makes when it enters a space.  talk about what the air tastes like, smells like.  what sounds are there?  even the white nose, break that down: air planes, fans, cicadas, anything.  remind yourself that you are sitting in the middle of a space brimming with detail.  remind yourself that you are not in nothingness and emptiness.  your world is fathomless.  it has potential.
  3. drink cold water and try to eat something that isn’t processed.  it does not need to be fancy.  buy yourself an apple with the change between your couch cushions.  eat it outside.  if you’re someone who walks, walk somewhere afterwards, just to stretch your legs.  take your fucking meds.  remember that its a good thing that you are inside your body.  your body is a fantastic and endlessly intricate machine, and even though society has smacked a bunch of poisonous ideas on it, that doesn’t change its inherent worth and splendor.  take care of it.
  4. read a novel.  underline your favorite lines, and write phrases that twist your heart inside your chest on the back of your hand with an ink pen.  read a novel like it’s poetry.  read poetry, something decadent but unpretentious.  watch a movie you haven’t seen before.  if there are free art galleries near you, walk through one.  take your time.  let yourself bask.  if there are patterns in what makes your soul ache, write those patterns down – marbles arches or soot crumbling bricks or dandelions or descriptions of dresses or whatever it is, write them down.
  5. your chosen family is important.  remember, they picked you as much as you picked them.  the love has no obligation.  it is given freely and it is given from a place of compassion.  you are not a burden.  if you need to breathe, take a minute by yourself and just exist, but remember to go back to your people.  when they need you, listen and be gracious.  always be gracious.  the universe sometimes remembers things like that.
  6. listen to new music.  link jump on youtube or related artist jump on spotify or ask the chap beside you in the cafe what their favorite band is, and listen to that.  listen to something that you don’t usually listen to.  we tend to tie up a lot of memory with music.  we are falling in love again.  the soundtrack needs to be specific to that.  
  7. allow yourself to indulge in romantics.  press flowers in old books.  play movies with subtitles and mouth the words.  dance in your room.  wear something that makes you feel good, even if you wouldn’t wear it in public.  write your chosen family letters, even if you hand deliver them.  write poetry, even awful poetry.  revel in its awfulness.  eat dark chocolate and when your chosen family want to go out, try to go out with them sometimes, even if its just to the market.  
college advice from someone who’s been on both sides of it

So I’m finishing up my Ph.D. and preparing to depart for the real world (no, just kidding, I’m going to be in school forever, only in a different capacity) and I thought I’d put together a list of some college tips to share with you all. I graduated with my B.A. in 2012, magna cum laude, with 2 majors, 1 honours thesis, 2 on-campus jobs, and 3 music things. Since then, I’ve gone to grad school and also taught six semesters of first-year seminars. Now I’m going on the job market for teaching positions. All of this means that I’ve seen both sides of the college experience, as a student and as an instructor. There are a lot of great & useful college advice posts going around studyblr this time of here, and I wanted to add my own. I hope it’s useful. So here we go, with a “read more” because it’s long (sorry if you’re on mobile):

academics

  • find your classrooms ahead of time (profs’ offices too)
  • figure out how long it will take you to walk between places
  • figure out where your best seat will be & claim it
  • say hi to the people next to you, learn their names
  • take notes in class
  • take advantage of extra credit
  • try your best not to fall asleep in class (and if you do fall asleep, apologise to the prof afterwards)
  • bring your glasses if you need them, don’t be stubborn about it
  • check out the library, wander in the stacks, talk to the librarians
  • figure out how & where to print
  • buy used books/textbooks, or rent them, but be careful with ebooks (some profs don’t allow them)
  • plan breaks into your class schedule, or block everything together, whichever works best for you
  • work out the pros & cons of 8am classes and/or night classes
  • plan ahead – have a planner, put things in it, do them
    • fake deadlines are a thing (write down earlier deadlines, trick yourself into meeting them, bask in satisfaction)
  • grades won’t be what they were in high school
    • keep in mind GPA values: a 3.5 will see you graduating with honours
  • be nice to the departmental administrative staff, thank them for helping you (even with small things)
  • office hours versus emailing profs: both will get your questions answered (probably) but if you can go and talk in person, do it
  • profs & TAs are people too, they have lives, they have bad days
  • if something comes up, talk to your prof, be honest but don’t overshare, just show them you’re trying
  • on that note, try

Reminder for young witches that...

Simply cleaning your home or room is enough to allow good energy into your home! (it’s also good with witches who deal with mental illness like depression or anxiety! it’s trouble starting but doing it slowly is great!)

Open a window and grab a duster and dust out the negative energy!

maybe light a good smelling candle (yellow is good for this)

play some music to help you through and fill your home with good vibes!

Charge some sigils in sunlight as you clean!

vacuum the carpet! (i saw a cool post where adding baking soda and essential oil to the carpet makes it extra clean and smell nice!)

Charge your phone, and organize apps!
make to-do lists!

organize your grimoire/bos or any note book you keep notes in!

charge your crystals and tools if you wish!

make some coffee or tea (or chocolate milk!!!) and sit on your bed or chair for rest!

There aren’t many people who love Mondays, and that is why we decided to share a list of couple of things we try to do every Sunday to prepare for new week and enter it in our best shape. Hope you find something here useful ^^ 

                                                                               ~gomedorgohome


 1. Write down everything you need to do and everything you need to remember about this week. 

Planning is the obvious key to being organised, so we don’t need to explain why you need to do it. What you, however, need to remember about is to write down everything- literally everything, from birthdays and tests, to watering plants and taking out the trash. That way, it’ll be easier for you to create specific to-do-lists for each day of the week and not forget about the, seemingly, little, but not less important, things.

 2. Check the weather forecast and check if you have appropriate clothes in your wardrobe 

Although this might sound a little uptight for some, we prefer to believe it’s actually easier to do your laundry on Sunday when you have some free time (and even deal with ironing and folding) and have clothes ready, than to run around like a drunk gremlin on a Wednesday morning, looking for clean clothes, because it’s suprisingly cold and you don’t have any clean sweaters. 

 3. Pack your bag just before going to bed 

Chances are, at that point, you won’t take anything out of it, and you will have your bag ready in the morning, therefore avoiding the drunk gremlin situation mentioned before 

 4. Clean your room

 If you are only to clean your room once a week, do it on Sunday. Open windows, clean your desk, vacuum and throw out the trash. That way you’ll begin new week in a fresh and clean environment and there is nothing that’ll make you feel more productive.

 5. Try to finish your work

 Obviously. But remember that all-nighters should always be a last resort and that not so many things actually deserve them.

 6. Call your friends and family

 No matter how busy are, you should have sometime in your week designated only for contacting your friends and family, updating them on you life and hearing about theirs. It’s better to talk with someone once a week, than not talk to them at all (obviously), even if at that point you may only be able to have a 30 minutes conversation over the phone. And Sundays are great for that, mostly because most people are more able (and willing) to talk on weekends than in the middle of a busy week.

 7. Do something for yourself (don’t overdo it though) 

Pamper yourself a little. Watch an episode of your favourite show, or have a very nice dinner. You worked hard this weekend and you deserve it. But be real with what you can, and what you can’t do- if you’re really busy, going to a cinema and a dinner later may not be the greatest of ideas, and maybe this week, getting a coffee in a nice cafe will have to do. 

 8. Workout

 Workouts are important and super great and you should do them not only on a Sunday. But what makes Sunday workouts really great, is that usually you have time for a longer and nicer one and they give you a motivation boosts which last till Monday 

 9. Plan your meals for the week 

You don’t need to get them ready right away, but you should have a general idea what you’ll be eating this week. So you can plan you shopping and cooking and cleaning (and yes, we know, we get boring with this constant planning thing, but it really is crucial) 

 10. Avoid all screens 

30 minutes before bedtime It’s a general rule and you should do it every day, not only on Sunday. It’ll be easier for you to fall asleep if you give your brain (and eyes) some time to relax 

 11. Go to bed slightly earlier and wake up slightly earlier

 Try to go to bed 30 minutes earlier and to wake up 30 minutes earlier. It (for reasons unknown to us ^^) makes wonders for your productivity and motivation

 12. Take a nice, long bath 

You should never underestimate good baths abilities to wash away the whole week, and there is nothing nicer than going to bed on a Sunday with super smooth and moisturised skin, and waking up on Monday already clean and smelling nice ^^

 13. Do something that’ll help you improve yourself 

 Do one lesson on Duolingo. Write another page of your book. Stretch. Improve everyday, specially on Sunday

 14. If you have time, prepare yourself food for Monday 

 Mondays aren’t great, but having food makes them slightly better

 15. Try to relax

 There is a reason why we created weekend.You can’t (and shouldn’t try to) cram the whole weekend- try to relax and enter new week with rested mind

Things I wish I knew at 18

1. High school friendships don’t last.
Not the way you want them to anyway.
Even if you swam oceans of pain together.
Even if you never wanted to drift apart.
Friendships fall apart.
Most times they sadly do.

2. Your parents will still treat you like a child. They don’t care about your legal reality. When you’re with them, they still see you as their baby. That can get frustrating but also comforting.

3. Your undergrad degree won’t matter as much as you think it will. So choose what you want to explore. Don’t choose something you think is going to be your career. Chances are when you graduate you will be doing something completely different than what you were dead sure of when you started college.
Explore.

4. People are more selfish now. People are more broken now. People are more cautious now. Everyone has been through something that haunts them.

5. Everyone is suffering. Some will use that as an excuse to mistreat you. Some will because of that very reason be there for you in your suffering in anyway they can. Most times it’s hard to tell which person you’re being. Don’t be an ass.

6. Not everyone makes life long friends in college. You won’t. That’s okay. Nothing good comes out of forceful relations anyway. It can get lonely but at least that kind of loneliness isn’t because of shitty company.

7. Grades. Internships. Extra curricular activities. They matter. Everyone acts like it doesn’t but it does. Whatever choice you make, whatever your course may be, how you perform does matter. It isn’t everything but it matters.

8. Self care isn’t boring or unnecessary. It’s important. It’s hard but it’s crucial.
You don’t have to click pictures for aesthetics or share your progress. You can if it helps. But you don’t have to. Because that’s secondary. You know what’s primary. Do it.

9. Just because you become an adult by a number and are recognized as one because of law doesn’t mean you aren’t you anymore.
The way you are at 17 years 364 days, is the way you will remain at 18. Perhaps 19.
That’s okay.
There’s a lot learn. You may have fought and conquered adolescence but this is a completely different story. There are new skills and lessons to be learned. All previous ones may not necessarily remain valid.

10. You genuinely have to learn to let go.
Imagine your life to be a tiny box. A box that fits in your palm. If that box is full of past pain, regret and disappointments, of all the people who broke you, of negativity and dried blood, all the good things and beautiful people that are to come into your life will fall right off because there just isn’t enough space in that box. It is full of everything you don’t need or deserve.
Good things will come your way, they will fall into your hands but you still won’t be happy if you don’t remember to take out the trash.

  2. Wearing thyme may enable you to see faeries
  3. Seven grains of wheat laid on a four leaf clover may enable you to see faeries
  4. Where oak, ash and thorn grow, faeries can be easily seen
  5. Lilac flowers will draw sprites, and repel those that are ill-willed
  6. Eating a primrose flower is said to give you faerie sight
  7. Collecting 5 primroses and tapping them on a faerie rock may open a portal to fairyland
  8. Place primroses on your door to receive a faerie blessing
  9. Carrying a sprig of lavender may help you see faeries
  10. Fresh flowers bring faeries. Keep house plants in your living space to invite in the faeries of those flowers.
  11. Faeries are attracted to those with childlike hearts and minds
  12. Carry with you a sprig of any flower or herb who’s faerie you wish to be close to
  13. Place the sprig under your pillow to receive a dream from that faery
  14. Bringing an acorn into your house will strengthen your connection to the faerie realm
  15. Meditating on the appearance of the marigold flower may enhance your faerie sight
  16. Grow a garden with flowers associated with the fae
  17. Add faerie or gnome statutes to your garden; they find this amusing
  18. Have a specific space in your home (a shelf, windowsill, table, etc) for the faeries to “live in”, and a spot to leave gifts for them (mine is in the garden)
  19. Let a portion of your garden grow wild
  20. Wind chimes hung in a window attract sprites
  21. Faeries love music and dancing. Dance in nature with them, or sing / play a song for them
  22. Create art for them, and draw the faeries you meet.
  23. An often used method of seeing faeries is letting your eyes go out of focus and pay attention to the corners of your vision.
  24. Crushed clover rubbed on eyelids may give one faerie sight
  25. Give back to the earth, for what you take. Pick up trash you find in nature, try to use less plastics, don’t waste food, compost your fruits/vegatables/herbs for rich soil.
  26. The best times to see faeries are dawn, dusk and midnight (the in-between times)
  27. Hang glass, crystals, and beads in your window for the sun to shine through; faeries like glittery & sparkly things.
  28. Wearing a crown of elder twigs on may eve will enable you to see faeries
  29. Go out and just sit in nature, simply enjoying it. You can also practice sensing sprites
  30. While it is dangerous to enter a faerie ring, running around it exactly nine times clockwise under a full moon will allow you to see and hear the faeries dancing inside it (note though, the faeries may take offense if this done on Beltane or Samhain)
  31. Heather is said to open portals to fairyland
  32. Looking through a stone with a natural hole, a hagstone, is said to allow one faerie sight
  33. Add a sigil on your door or window meaning “good faeries welcome”
  34. Leave out a small saucer of milk for any household faeries
  35. Try sitting in your garden in the early morning, late afternoon, evening, night
  36. Look up artists who specialise in faeries and observe their different interpretations of the fae (Brian Froud, Amy Brown, Sulamith Wülfing, Cicely Mary Baker, Howard David Johnson, Nadia Strelkina, etc)
  37. Read real life accounts of people’s encounters with faeries
  38. Read traditional fairie lore
  39. Believe. Faeries most likely won’t interact or make themselves known to closed minds
  40. Don’t forget to be polite and respectful!

Now finished: Safety tips for dealing with the fae and protecting against them

Alright…here’s my mother’s indoor gardening tip, so listen closely.

You’re leaving for vacation; there’s no one left to water your plants. What do you do? You can’t leave them to die!

You water your plants and take a clear plastic bag- I used a plastic trash bag, but my mother suggests something like a dry-cleaning return bag- and you gently place your plant inside. Once you soak your plant thoroughly (can’t let it dry out) you take some deep breaths and you blow up that bag like a balloon. It’ll need the CO2 while you’re gone.

You tie the end as tight as you can, as air tight as you can, and you take a look at your little ecosystem. Water in the pot and from your breath can’t leave the bubble and will cycle again and again through the plant; the CO2 should be more than enough for a week while you’re gone to the beach or to the swamp or the hills or wherever you may roam.

Set ‘em in their preferred sunlight and let them be.

So worry less! I know I will now. 🌿🌱
Blessings!

Bleeding Crown- A Curse

to take away the power of those that have abused it, and make them weak

  1. Write down the name of a person who has abused their power on white paper.
  2. On the same paper, write how that has made you feel. Pour all your anger, betrayal, disappointment, etc. into it.
  3. Put the paper in a jar.
  4. Add animal teeth (or thorns), grave dirt, stinging nettle, and red liquid of some sort. As you put each ingredient into the jar, imagine it taking away their power and cursing them. Lid the jar.
  5. Put a (non-flammable) representation of their power on top of the jar’s lid. It can be a crown cut out of aluminum foil, if you like.
  6. Put a red candle on top. Light it while saying:

“I cried for mercy; you ignored my pleading. 

You had your crown, but now it’s bleeding. 

You must learn that power is fleeting.”

  • Once the candle has burned down, do with the jar as you see fit. Throw it in the trash, keep it around so you can keep charging it with your intent…
