that is a random quote but what ever

10 random facts about me:

Since I’ve reached 400 followers (omg what?!) I thought I’d tell you all a bit more about myself because I realise I don’t really tell you lot about who I am.

  1. My name is Jessica - but literally everyone calls me Jess and I’m the biggest dork ever
  2. I’m 17 even though I look like a 12 year old
  3. I’m from England so I’m an awful combination of polite, awkward and cynical
  4. My Hogwarts house is Slytherin (and I’m proud of it)
  5. I’m like 5"1 possibly 5"2 (I haven’t measured myself but I grew like a tiny bit - basically I’m short af)
  6. My favourite time of year is Christmas
  7. My dream is to write a novel and then have it turned into a film because how cool would that be?!
  8. Moths are one of my biggest fears (that and failure/being forgotten)
  9. My favourite Disney Princess is Belle
  10. I’m literally obsessed with 80s movies and I’d say Back to the Future is one of my all time faves (it’s hard to pick an actual solid favourite but it’s up there)

    Once again thank you soooooo much for 400 followers I legit thought I would never get above 100. This means a lot to me so thank you xx

Hi Emma! Im thinking of buying a cute journal to write in this summer. Any thoughts of what I could do in it? (Besides writing a story or write about my day) Thanks!

Hello! Here are a few things you could do:

  • diary (as you said): log your day, write what you did, just a record of your day-to-day happenings
  • story (as you said): write down all the stories!!
  • bullet journal: note down all your daily to-do and focus on getting them done!
  • gratitude journal: write down things you’re grateful for each day and why
  • 365 journal: write down a sentence a day. Could be a quote you like, an event that happened, a funny moment or something!
  • dream log: write down your dreams and maybe research their meaning!
  • review journal: if you see a movie or read a book write down your thoughts!
  • photo a day journal: make a daily scrapbook/photo album
  • expense tracker: note each thing you spend your money (you could track everything or just the things you treat yourself on)
  • goals journal: set yourself a goal and try to map out how you will achieve over a certain amount of time! Record how well you’re doing!
  • recipe book: write down ingredients and an easy step-by-step guide so you can always make something to eat
  • dashboard notebook: a little book that is kind of a hub of your life such as important emergency contacts, accounts names/passwords/emails, etc
  • tv show tracker: note down each season and cross of episodes as you go. You could also write down important parts of each episode so you can be reminded of what you’ve seen.
  • inspiration/mood-book: print off photos, quotes, random bits and bobs that you find inspiration
  • gift log: write down the birthdays, anniversaries, holidays of your friends and note down any ideas you might think they’d like as a gift. If they ever say “I love that!” then make a note of what it is and where to get it so you can get later!
  • wishlist journal: take note of things you’d like to buy over the year!
  • happiness journal: make a scrapbook of things that make you happy - could be photos, quotes, events, people, etc
  • monthly overview, goals and reflection: each month write down things that happened and how you felt
  • project/assessment book: plan out all your school or university assignments such as due dates, word count, to-dos, questions, citations, etc
  • ‘fuck that’ book: when you’re angry or annoyed by something, write it down, rant about until your hearts content!
  • your own wreck this journal - you can Google to see what I mean but make your own version. Either you come up with ideas or maybe get a friend to write down cool things to do.
  • magazine clipping journal - if you see anything you like, cut it and stick it in. For me, I’d maybe do street style or runway fashion!
  • swatch book: whenever you get some new pens, make a swatch board of them!
  • friendship journal: you and your friend(s) could make a book where you write down things you like about each other, places you go to together, photos you take, etc. Maybe pass it around each week and you can all review what you’re doing!
  • travel log: even if you aren’t travelling far or overseas write down where you go and what it was like. Write down places you’d like to visit or things you’d like to see!
  • doodle book: just a book full of random drawings, sketches, etc
  • writing prompts: find some writing prompts that you’d like to continue and get writing!
  • receipts book: stick in all the things you spend your money on either to track or just out of curiosity!
  • flower press log: a cool way to save any pretty plants you find!
  • scrapbook: put in some of your favourite things in there! You could maybe do them for your friends for cute, personalised gifts!
  • handwriting practice: take time to practice your lettering, caligraphy or just normal handwriting!
  • habit tracker: do a ‘don’t break the chain’ kind of thing to either create or break your habits!

Hope that gives you some ideas! x

disgusted because of all the hands that i let touch me, all the mouths that i let kiss me, and all the men i let call me theirs.
what happened to the girl who thought of love as special? who thought that there is ‘the one’ out there? who thought that love is worth the wait?
she is off searching a temporary fix in random men now. ever since you left her, she is letting other men use her for a bit of pleasure. letting them make homes out of her body for a night, so she doesn’t have to be so alone. she is letting them touch the most sacred parts of her like it’s nothing, like it all has no meaning. it’s the heat of the moment, a playful smirk and an extended hand. that is all she needs nowadays to let men have her. it’s the closest she feels to love…even if it’s just for one night.

- e.s. // love for the night.

How to study while struggling with mental-health

Em Português

  So, I’m new to this studyblr thing, but I haven’t seen something like this before. Studying can be hard while you go on and off with with your illness, and I believe the most important is bending your way of thinking. It’s hard word. But recovery is such a gratifying hard work. 


   You just can’t study sometimes, and that doesn’t mean you’re not being productive. Treat yourself, your body needs rest, food, exercise, relaxing. Everytime you do one of this, you can congratulate yourself. Congratulate yourself, even if it seems so small. In my bad days, texting my best friend is hard. And I let myself feel good when I do it. When I think that only if I’m studying I’m being productive, I tend to loose motivation, and get into the vicious circle of feeling bad brcause I don’t study and not studying cause I feel bad. So I find other ways to feel productive, and increase them until I can put small studies - and them increase them! This might take a few days, or weeks. But remember that you’re trying and that already is remarkable, so do congratulate yourself and do be proud that you got out of bad to brush your teeth. 

 You can try: 

  • Taking care of yourself 
  • Watching a TV show. 
  • Baking something! I love this one 
  • Stretching and walking. It can be just around your room, but it will wake your body up. Cuddle and playing with a pet if you have one. 
  • Reading anything. It can be the dumbest fanfic ever, but it will help you concentrate, so nice one! 
  • Playing a game. 
  • Sketching drawings or random quotes. And this ain’t meant to look pretty, just to be fun. 
  • Coloring.
  • Making yourself some tea. 
  • Anything really!

  “But others are so productive”. You know what is AWSOME? Living when your mind is fighting against you. You’re already formidable for anything you can accomplish because of this. Remember that you’re not to blame on how your brain works, and allow yourself bad days. And every time you do study, don’t ever think “finally, I lost so many times already” but be SUPER proud of you. I am. You’re doing great if you’re searching so much to find helpful tips already.


   Planing is great, but breaking schedules is ok. This happens to everyone, I promise. You wouldn’t blame yourself if you got stuck in the rain, or had to help a friend, right? So why do if you can’t get out if bed? You can’t always control it. So what I do is planing, and instead of feeling bad about what I haven’t done, I feel good about what I have done. Sometimes, looking at lost dates is hard. So I close my agenda and just make a to-do list, crossing the items when I get to them, and never following orders. And remember to put small tasks in your list as well! 


  Have a routine before studying, and have a routine before studying when you’re not feeling good. This helps your brain associate that it needs to concentrate. 

 I have three routines, for example:
 In my normal days, I just stretch, drink cold water and put some music I like and get straight to studying hard.
 On my sad days, I take a cold shower, eat a snack and play some concentration games. Only then I get to studying, and I start with baby steps - I tend to watching videos or listening to poadcasts first. It takes a while, but anything you can do you need to feel proud about.
  On my hipomaniac days, I go for walks or even runs. I need to tire my body a bit or I can’t focus. Then I take two glasses of water and a shower. Only THEN I study, and usually start with reading, to remind myself that while I have a lot of energy and feel good, it won’t do anything without discipline. 

  Find out what works for you. On bad days it will take a while, but if it gets you going, it is more than worth it. 


  Exercise. And again, it is okay when you can’t - and not a privilege of us neuroatypicals. But exercises are good ways to control your body chemistry. I have three exercise routines - again, for normal days in which I have energy, for days when I have less energy and for days in which I have WAY too much energy. You also don’t need to do this everyday, this is me, but have a schedule. And never fear to break schedules. Also, eat healthy.

  Remember: mental illness is all about chemistry, which is frustrating, but also means you can hack it. And not just with medication. 


  Talk about your feelings, and not only when they’re bad. If you can afford a therapist, great. If you don’t, regularly talk to hotlines or trustworthy persons. Or just write about it. It really works to reduce your number of crises.


  Power posing. Talking about hacking brain chemistry! I learnt this from a lecture called Our Body Language Shapes Who We Are, from psychologist Amy Cuddy - you can find it at TED. And it changed my life. Posing like Wonder Woman or all star spread for two minutes gets your cortisol (stress hormone) levels down, and your testosterone levels up! Sounds silly, but it does work. Also, it does look kinda silly so you can laugh and have fun while at it.


  Have safety plans for every bad emotion you feel. I make lists I can look at when an emotion is overwhelming and pick something to do. Things like anxiety crises, sadness, anger, apathy and self destructive thoughts. This will help you reduce the times of this bad emotions and refrain it from growing into worse things, such as episodes. 


  Motivation. Motivation is important to anyone. I love lists - especially because I can hide them if they’re making me feel bad - so I have one for this as well. Things such as: 

  •  I love learning 
  •  Studying is a way of having control over my brain 
  • I want to be a teacher that makes a difference

  I also love listening to Sia’s The Greatest, it’s kinda of my fighting song. If you have one, blast it and perform it ridiculously around your room until your dog is staring at you like you bring dishonor to the family - or is it just my life. 

  Find your motivation and keep it to your chest. ]


  Try out different study methods in different states. Look at posts at studying tips - always remembering that some might not work for you, and that’s not (just) because of your illness, and that’s ok, that’s why they are so many - and use them to build your study routines. Routines are great because they bring safety and help you when you’re lost. 


 Sometimes you can’t control your sleep. It is important to try, however, don’t blame yourself if your brain just make it impossible some days. This is to the folks that are on the bipolar spectrum and like me can go 5 days straight with a maximum of 4 hours of daily sleep. If you know you can’t control it, don’t force it. It will make you feel anxious and you get MORE enrgy and impulsiveness. Tiring your body and brain helps. 

  There are days when it is three a.m. and I just can’t sleep but am not feeling bad. On those days, I work for a maximum of two hours. It is a nice moment for putting your reading in day. But never do this for many consecutive days, you’ll feel like a zombie later. However, it can help with getting something done. And it is especially calming for unrest. 


  Remember that bad days happen and you’re allowed to feel, to cry and rest. And that you’re never a burden when you need help or talk about your feelings. You are only human. Have routines, break routines. Do crazy wishes like decorating a Christmas tree in the middle of June. Pamper yourself. And just never give up. 

Hope some of this helped.

Hi, Emma! I got a bunch of composition notebooks as gifts and they're very pretty, but I don't really know how to best use them. I prefer spirals or loose leafs for notes, and they're not perforated. Any ideas on how to use these composition books? Thanks ><)

Hi! I know what you mean about being particular about notebooks - the number of ones I went through trying to figure out which style I liked best is crazy! Here are a few ways you could use them:

  • bullet journal: note down all your daily to-do and focus on getting them done!
  • diary: log your day, write what you did, just a record of your day-to-day happenings
  • gratitude journal: write down things you’re grateful for each day and why 
  • 365 journal: write down a sentence a day. Could be a quote you like, an event that happened, a funny moment or something!
  • dream log: write down your dreams and maybe research their meaning!
  • review journal: if you see and movie or read a book write down your thoughts! 
  • photo a day journal: make a daily scrapbook/photo album
  • expense tracker: note each thing you spend your money (you could track everything or just the things you treat yourself on)
  • goals journal: set yourself a goal and try to map out how you will achieve over a certain amount of time! Record how well you’re doing!
  • recipe book: write down ingredients and an easy step-by-step guide so you can always make something to eat
  • dashboard notebook: a little book that is kind of a hub of your life such as important emergency contacts, accounts names/passwords/emails, etc
  • tv show tracker: note down each season and cross of episodes as you go. You could also write down important parts of each episode so you can be reminded of what you’ve seen.
  • inspiration/mood-book: print off photos, quotes, random bits and bobs that you find inspiration
  • gift log: write down the birthdays, anniversaries, holidays of your friends and note down any ideas you might think they’d like as a gift. If they ever say “I love that!” then make a note of what it is and where to get it so you can get later!
  • wishlist journal: take note of things you’d like to buy over the year!
  • happiness journal: make a scrapbook of things that make you happy - could be photos, quotes, events, people, etc
  • monthly overview, goals and reflection: each month write down things that happened and how you felt
  • project/assessment book: plan out all your school or university assignments such as due dates, word count, to-dos, questions, citations, etc
  • ‘fuck that’ book: when you’re angry or annoyed by something, write it down, rant about until your hearts content!
  • your own wreck this journal - you can Google to see what I mean but make your own version. Either you come up with ideas or maybe get a friend to write down cool things to do.
  • magazine clipping journal - if you see anything you like, cut it and stick it in. For me, I’d maybe do street style or runway fashion!
  • swatch book: whenever you get some new pens, make a swatch board of them!
  • friendship journal: you and your friend(s) could make a book where you write down things you like about each other, places you go to together, photos you take, etc. Maybe pass it around each week and you can all review what you’re doing!
  • travel log: even if you aren’t travelling far or overseas write down where you go and what it was like. Write down places you’d like to visit or things you’d like to see!
  • doodle book: just a book full of random drawings, sketches, etc
  • writing prompts: find some writing prompts that you’d like to continue and get writing!
  • receipts book: stick in all the things you spend your money on either to track or just out of curiosity!
  • flower press log: a cool way to save any pretty plants you find!
  • scrapbook: put in some of your favourite things in there! You could maybe do them for your friends for cute, personalised gifts!
  • handwriting practice: take time to practice your lettering, caligraphy or just normal handwriting!
  • habit tracker: do a ‘don’t break the chain’ kind of thing to either create or break your habits!

Hope that gives you some ideas! x

“How can you still count yourself a knight, when you have forsaken every vow you ever swore?”
Jaime reached for the flagon to refill his cup. “So many vows…they make you swear and swear. Defend the king. Obey the king. Keep his secrets. Do his bidding. Your life for his. But obey your father. Love your sister. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak. Respect the gods. Obey the laws. It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or the other.” He took a healthy swallow of wine and closed his eyes for an instant, leaning his head back against the patch of nitre on the wall. “I was the youngest man ever to wear the white cloak.”
“And the youngest to betray all it stood for, Kingslayer.”
“Kingslayer,” he pronounced carefully. “And such a king he was!”

a couple of weeks ago i decided to start rereading crooked kingdom because it was my favourite book of last year (and probably ever) and id only read it once (whereas ive read six of crows 3 (?) times now!) i thought id put tabs in all my favourite bits of the book, like the bits that made me laugh or cry, the beautiful quotes, the hamilton references and… this is what it looks like now…
at some point each different colour meant something but i kept running out of the sticky tabs so towards the end its just kinda random…
… i just really really love this book, okay…

I cant wait for Stiles to return home to his wife Lydia and their son Mason.

ok but like. can we discuss a stydia/mason friendship trio?? because it’s kind of everything i’ve ever wanted and i’m sad that we’re not actually getting it. consider

  • mason originally hangs around them because he wants to help figure things out, and stiles and lydia are The Ones that always do
  • their late night detective sessions end up in fast food runs and long talks in the car and they learn mason is actually just a smaller version of them and they’re like. okay. yeah. we’re adopting this one.
  • they pick mason up from school sometimes and grab coffee in an attempt to be Normal and they have a strict “no supernatural talk” rule
  • mason and lydia being super nerds together discussing physics and wild mathematical theories while stiles sips his sugary frappucino in content confusion
  • just mason and lydia being nerd companions in general. when stiles isn’t at her house (and sometimes when he is) mason is there, doing homework or talking to lydia about the latest Nerd News or just chilling and watching tv and eating her food because that’s what friends are for
  • mason gets super comfortable with them and feels like he can confide in them, and they really are like cool, young parents that don’t give him a curfew or tell him to clean his room (well, lydia does sometimes, but she can’t punish him so it doesn’t count)
  • Stiles is constantly cracking jokes about him being their son. his immediate response to mostly everything mason does is “that’s my boy”
  • when stiles and lydia eventually move go to college, all 3 of them have skype sessions at least once a week (separate from the weekly Pack Skype Call they all vowed to make time for) 
  • stiles and mason totally have an ongoing star wars marathon over rabb.it that they come back to whenever they’re both free 
  • their groupchat is full of the most random shit ever. they genuinely check up on each other, but there’s also memes galore, links to weird youtube videos, song recommendations, rants about their roommates/people at school, cheesy inspirational quotes (sent ironically, but they all look for ones that they know the others lowkey need to hear), blurry annoyed face selfies. only they truly understand what is ever going on in there
  • just lydia/mason/stiles being! best! pals! a little family! i’m emo! we could’ve had it all!

“You ever get up at night, and it’s like pitch dark, and all you know is your throat is on fire and you gotta get a glass of water? And you don’t turn on any lights, so you just stumble… that’s what my career was.” - Tom Hanks

  • Lincoln: Bellamy said he liked me. But he also made it clear what he’d do to me if I ever hurt you or did anything bad. In fact, he described what he’d do in very graphic detail. Then just like that, he switched to some random, happy topic. I like the guy, but he’s scary.
  • Octavia: He’s out of line! He has no right to threaten my boyfriends. I’m seventeen. Basically an adult. I don’t need his help. I can threaten my boyfriends myself.
I happen to know an astronaut, it’s quite random. I’m obsessed with space. I’m so in love with it. A woman just got back, Peggy Whitson is her name, she’s an American astronaut, and she just got back from spending 655 days , which is the longest anyone has ever spent in space, and she just landed yesterday actually weirdly enough. My friend Shane Kimbrough, who’s just come back from the International Space Center, I’d bring him because he knows what to do. And then I’d bring one of my really good friends from Ireland, he’s a space economist, so he works out the price of how to get to space. He would really enjoy it, because anytime we talk about - anytime we go for a drink, all we end up doing is talking about space. And I reckon I would bring, um, ah - I’d bring you, because you like space. Anyone who likes space, I’m bringing.

List of Malec things given to other characters:

I’ve been wanting to start this list for a long time and finally did it today. I know there are lots more but this is a start just off the top of my head. Now I’m going back to bed. 😏😒


Stamina rune - one of the most iconic Magnus Bane quotes EVER is wasted on Jace and random hookup.

Fumbling first time make-out: wasted on Climon, Alec getting frisky with Magnus and lifting his shirt for the first time in TBC should have been in the show! Clary taking off Simon’s shirt was a slap in the face to Malec fans!

Cat-eyes reveal - should have been a private moment with Alec but instead used as party trick to Max right in front of Maryse.

Morning after pillow talk - wasted on Simon and Maureen. Malec needed that moment to confirm what happened was positive and happy for them. Some people still don’t think they even did it!

Cooking together - wasted on Raphael and Izzy when everyone knows they aren’t even a couple.
This is majorly messed up people.

Couch make-out - also wasted on Raphael and Izzy when everyone knows Malec had the BEST couch scene ever!!!

Hugging - Climon gets multiple hugs and cuddles in the street, on rooftops, on top of a freaking van. Can Malec please have a hug????? One hug????? Is this asking too much??????

“I like my chin!”


“I’m sorry,” Potter said hopelessly.


“I wasn’t saying it to make you sorry, I told you it was all right, I did attempt an Unforgivable on you, I was saying it because I feel somewhat hysterical! I’m ruined! Ruined!”


“You’re not,” Potter said, still sounding upset for some reason. Draco didn’t see what he had to be upset about.


“I am, too,” he told him. “It’s not like your scars. When people ask you how you got yours, you can say ‘battling evil.’ I’ll have to say ‘in a men’s bathroom.’ Won’t have the same cachet. Besides, scars, they need a certain skin tone, I don’t tan, I go a peculiar mauve shade in the sun, it just won’t work-”


Potter made an odd sound, which turned somehow into laughter. Draco stopped and realised that Potter was clearly more than somewhat hysterical.


He laughed for a few terrible minutes, then gave a sort of groan and buried his face in his hands. “You’re so weird,” he said.


“I beg your pardon,” Draco returned, much affronted.


“You’re so weird,” Potter repeated. “I don’t, I don’t understand you at all. I don’t even know why I like you so much but God, God, I do.”
