Does anyone else find being able to build your own worlds in a story….weird?

I’m so used to exploring worlds built by other people so I forget that I am in charge of this world, and if I want there to be a country inspired by Minoan Crete, there can be a country inspired by Minoan Crete. I don’t need to do what everyone else is doing.

All mages are genderfluid in this world! BAM! It is so, because it’s mine and I can do what I want.

Dragons are polyamorous and matriarchal, I can do this too.

In my version of fantasy China, the Empress is currently Head of State. There have been multiple Empresses. There is also no preference for sons.

The same is true for the vaguely Medieval European kingdom, which is currently ruled by two gay kings, who are husbands.

One country doesn’t care about kings or bloodlines, they just hold contests to pick people to represent them at the fantasy UN. This fantastical UN, btw, is really just a bunch of friends who happen to be world leaders.

Thank you @doristudies for tagging me!

1. What [subjects] are you currently studying?

> I am a high school junior. My stream is science. So, my subjects are Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, English and Alternative English (Advanced English).

2. Who would you say is your biggest influence?

> So, there’s an entrepreneur in India named Sandeep Maheshwari and he has a yt channel. His videos really influenced me to get going and see life in a different way and listen to your heart and don’t regret what you do.

Another person who influenced me is @studyign Her yt channel is so motivating.

Also, my fav singer Avril Lavigne is my motivation.

+ there’s a friend of my who has really really influenced my life.

And obvio the studyblr community is awesome and it has really motivated me to be on track.

3. What’s one country you would like to visit?

>I don’t there’s anything particular about travelling. I want take a world tour, lol

But, if given to choose I would like to go to Rome and France. IDK why!! hehe

4. What’s your favourite book?

> Again, I don’t think there’s anything particular in reading. I can hopefully give some genre I love to read. They are most probably Romance, Fantasy, Love, and things to do with life, motivation and being dynamic.

5. What do you do to keep yourself motivated?

> After joining studyblr, I get on here and look at my dashboard how people all over the world are busy studying and being productive (and I am rotting here!)

That’s a great deal of motivation, I guess. + I focus on myself and inspire myself from within when I can’t find anything from my surroundings.

6. What language would you really like to learn?

> IDK. Currently, i am focusing on getting through my finals. So, I’ll think about it later, may be.

But I would love to learn a foreign language, like, Thai or Chinese or IDK lol

> Obvio, Christmas. But here we get just one day as Christmas holiday and for Halloween, we have none.

8. How old are you?

> I am 17. I am so young, lmao.BDW my b’day is on 17th of October.

9. Favourite season?

> Spring and summer.

Well! Spring because of all the new nature showers (I love new things, hehe)

and summer because I can relatively get up early in the morning.

10. Who is your favourite band/ singer?

> OKAY! Now that’s something I love to tell people. So, Avril Lavigne, Enrique Iglesias, Taylor Swift.

And if I have to choose from my country (Bollywood), they would be Arijit Singh, Atif Aslam.

11. Have you had a good day today?

> Not much. In the morning I wasn’t feeling well and then I was not productive at all throughout the day. But in the evening I went to buy some stationary and personal stuff. So, I guess that was a good part!

Finally, thanks for asking!!

I am going to randomly tag

anonymous asked:

Omg it's so cute that Blake literally "giggles" whenever Gwen talks about him or country music on the show. TEENAGERS!!!

One of the things I loved about what Gwen said was that it was “so beautiful to discover something that is so *important*. I dunno, that just struck me. It wasn’t like, ‘yeah, it sounds nice’ or some kind of generic ‘it’s been cool exploring another genre’, y’know. It speaks to a better understanding of its place and where it fits. And yeah, Blake looked kinda proud, lol. 

Also, if they were any other couple but them, I’d probably find their giggling and OTTness sickening. But as it is… 😍

Thank you @doristudies for tagging me!

1. What [subjects] are you currently studying?

I havent started school yet (and wont for another 4 months) but I’ll be studying fashion design & fashion photography as an elective!

2. Who would you say is your biggest influence?

i dont have many ‘influences’ but i did take up the advice of a few friends of my cousin’s who are currently in art school to pursue art so yea…. also i guess maybe catcreature on youtube?? like her vlogs kinda inspired me to shoot for risd for uni/ central st martins?? also i guess one of my classmates (for my 1 week in JC LOL) gave me some advice on photography + fashion school so yea her.

i guess the song of achilles by madeline miller??? its so well written & none of that shitty toxic str8 romance in 99% of YA novels… made me cry lol… i also like the captive prince series but like thats a series lol so ?? also the dark wife by sarah diemer. as you can see i love queer romance & fantasy/ mythology settings

5. What do you do to keep yourself motivated?

in terms of studying i guess…look @ other studyblrs’ posts? i dont really rely on ‘motivation’ cuz i read somewhere that ‘motivation’ is pretty inconsistent & can leave you in a rut yadda yadda… so i rely mostly on habit, so even though i procrastinate a lot, at the end of the day i still force myself to get shit done.

I wanted to learn korean initially but i got bored of it lol… so for now japanese, russian, italian… and perfect my german.

Eagle’s Eye

Shiratorizawa Week Day 3- AU/Crossover

Summary: What happens when you cause so much trouble for one country that even the police can’t handle? When a dangerous man turns his back, he doesn’t realize an eagle has it’s eye on him.

I have been VERY eager to post this for about over a month now! I overall have just been excited for Shiratorizawa week since it was announced back in October! I have to say that Shiratorizawa overall is my favorite team out of everyone in Haikyuu!!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

Ring! Ring! Sehun is calling! ヾ(〃^∇^)ノ♪
