Okay so I’ve been thinking about volume 4 a lot since it ended and I still have several questions about it, particularly these moments.
I watched these scenes over and over again in an attempt to figure it out. A thought finally hit me. The two recurring factors in these scenes are Qrow being poisoned by Tyrian, and Jaune and/or Ruby being there. So, I took it upon myself to do a little bit of research on the symptoms of scorpion stings.
It was made very clear to me that a scorpion’s venom is highly likely to cause hallucinations that can last until the wound is treated. I thought some more, and… something popped into my brain.
What if Tyrian’s poison caused Qrow to hallucinate, and he keeps seeing Jaune and Ruby as Tai and Summer? (bonus if he thinks Ren is Raven bc hair) It would make sense in the scene where he says “Tai she’s not coming” because he’s facing Jaune when he says it, so he could’ve stolen a glance at him and hallucinated. In the scene where he grabs Jaune’s hand, he may have been hallucinating about a past battle with team STRQ and urging “Tai” to be careful. And in the scene with Ruby, he may have been imagining a time when he was injured and “Summer” was there to comfort him. Just putting it out there…
heh everyone it’s Tay and here’s a masterpost to become a disciplined
individual because that’s what we all lazybones dream of but here’s how
to make it come true! ( “•√•” )
——- Making a study routine ——
Check how to make a study routine during exams here.
Step 1. Write down all the subjects you have on the basis of their difficulty level.
how - If you find a subject difficult or if it has a lot of
memorization portion give it 3 points. If you are having any difficulty
in a particular topic of a subject, give that subject 3 points too until
you understand that topic. I put history here because is has lots and
lots of pages to be read and stuff to be memorized. When study? You are going to have to study these subjects every single day the sun shines.
give subjects which are easy to grasp with little bit of understanding,
2 points. Put the subject with the different topic here too after you
understand the topic because if you can’t understand a particular topic,
it means you’re not fully confident about the subject itself. I put maths, since it needs regular practice, plus biology and chemistry here. When
study? You are gonna study these subjects every alternative day or
every day for a short amount of time, say 30 minutes each day.
give subjects which need very little time to be understood or those
which you can do during the free time in class, a single point. I put
Sanskrit, Hindi and English literature here. When study? You can study these on every weekends and holidays or as said earlier, during the free time in between classes.
Step 2.Boxing in the stuff.
you are done making the list, use this cute printable by @cmpbls to box
in time for every subject. Make this REALISTIC and on the basis of your
learning speed. Leave in space for sleep, eating, shower, pee (
joking joking ;; ), chores, school/college, running/ fitness etc. Don’t
forget recreation because your mental health is important too. These can
be going out for movies, watching TV shows, creating art, checking
social media, making yummy deserts for yourself, getting a long long
shower, a picnic with friends and the list goes on.
Step 3. Done making it?
Then start using it! See if you left out any important
thing or if your time limit for each subject is a bit less or a bit
more. Write all these down somewhere and continue for a week. At the
end of the week, adjust your time for any subject you found uncomfortable with or add any chore which you forgot. Refer to step 1 for
this again. Then make a new routine again. Make sure this is perfect
because c'mon you don’t want to keep making schedules, do you?
So you’re done making a routine. But what happens after a month or so, can’t seem to maintain it? Keep reading then!
—— Maintaining a study routine ——
Step 1. Make it real. If
you ask me to do 10 hours of study each day, I won’t be able to do it
since I’m not use to it. Just like that, knowing your own learning
capacity, make your routine so that you’re actually able to put it to
use. Put in breaks, shower time, pee time (joking, I was making sure
you’re listening haha) and all other chores and stuff. Make it normal
and not some idealistic thing which you can’t follow at all. However,
if you do want to improve your learning capacity, go baby steps! For
that, increase your study time and decrease your breaks in between
proportionally. Then message me about your success! ;)
Step 2. Burnout baby? Make
sure your not just studying and studying 24/7. Putting in breaks is
super important as it helps in keeping your focus and determination
consistent. Having burnouts will not only decrease your productivity but
will also lead to unwillingness to follow your routine. Remember,
mental health is as important as your academic status! Go out in the sun
with your friends and enjoy nature in its purest form ok?
Step 3. Enjoy, let go a little bit. Please
dont just keep studying 24/7. Have some relaxing days where you take
out time for yourself and your pet (yes) and do some self care! Go for a
walk, pet a pet, read a book, take a long shower, go out with friends
and have fun!
Against my better judgement, I bought this month’s Zero Sum (3/28/17), and I’m pretty happy I did!
So we see something we already got a glimpse of, Taruchie and Sai Tai Sui’s character designs for the anime! And also some adorable chibis! Also some upcoming merchandise for something called a ‘Kuji’, which I believe is like a lottery.
Saiyuki Reload Blast volume 3 has been pushed back to June.
Also an image drawn by Minekura celebrating Zero Sum’s 15th anniversary! If you purchased the physical copy of ZS you will receive a booklet with art from many manga artists!
summer 2017 will be all about sipping mai tai’s on the beach, brown skin glowing under the sun, gold jewelry, hibiscus flowers in your hair, glossy honey colored lips, the way brown eyes glimmer in the light, clubbing late at night, smoking with the girls, body glitter, platform high heels, and dreaming away your life
Tai: Qrow, no…
Qrow: Qrow yes. You’ve been moping ever since the girls left. You’re bringing everyone down! So tonight I show you how to bar-flirt!
Qrow: Step 1, Drink!
Qrow: Step 2, walk up to woman of your affections!
Tai: *Walks up*
Qrow: Step 3, ?????
Tai: *Looks over shoulder to see Qrow sprinting out of bar*
Qrow: Step 4, profit! Gotta go, bye!
The next day…
Qrow: I’d better go check on the guy… *sees three attractive women leave Tai’s house*
Tai: Instructions unclear. Accidentally had foursome.
