the stress of this set tho

Sojiro Shimada headcanons
  • he has an older sister who ran off with a lover when they were young. She visits sometimes to give his kids too much sugar and encourage them to do wild shit like express themselves. Of course you can finger paint on the walls Genji.
  • He liked sweets he kept a stash in his office.
  • God damn he loved his wife
  • it was a kind of business marriage, probably arranged for him, but they were lucky and fell in love. She was super funny?? It surprised him she seemed so quiet and reserved in meetings between their families he was not expecting dick jokes on the first date
  • They worked wonderfully together, he was a practical businessman and she was ruthlessly clever and charismatic. A perfect team the family had never done better. 
  • She died having Genji. His father never blamed him though. 
  • God damn he loved his kids!
  • He was always busy but still a damn good dad. He never ignored his kids and tried not to tell them “not now” if he could help it. He took every opportunity he possibly could to go out and do fun kid stuff with them. He’d do Hanzo’s hair for him and help him with his homework. He’d let Genji paint his nails and scribble on papers he didn’t need, just please, not the walls again.(Hanzo’s responsible attitude developed quite early. Think like, 4 years old following Genji while he crawls around, just kinda herding him away from things he shouldn’t touch. Probably making a face and sighing like he’s too old and tired for this, even tho he is doing it completely by his own will.This was helpful for poor busy dad.)
  • He told his kids stories before bed almost every night. Even when it was just Hanzo. When they were a little older and he pulled that “once there were two dragons who were grounded because they stayed out past curfew” Genji told him he should have ditched the family and written children’s stories. He low key liked the idea. 
  • There’s a picture of his wife on his nightstand and he talks to her sometimes. About things that are stressing him out, about how smart Hanzo is or how Genji looks exactly like her. 
  • He tried not to put excessive pressure on Hanzo, but Hanzo would just make up for it by putting pressure on himself. This is a little bit frustrating, he doesn’t wanna say, “maybe you shouldn’t aim so high”, but he hates to see Hanzo so stressed out trying to reach the bars he set for himself. He appreciates that Genji seems to take care of and support his brother, tho. 
  • He never pushed Genji to accept his role as heir to the family, but he did try to convince his son that there was a nobility in what they did. Even if they dealt in weapons and drugs and death, they provided jobs and second chances to unfortunate people, they were fair with their justice and they protected their city. 
  • He was constantly at odds with his wife’s older and younger brothers, who joined the family’s council of elders when they married into the family. The pair of them were greedy and underhanded and blamed Genji for the death of their sister. They went behind his back and gave the poor kid shit all the time.
  • He always has been and would still be very proud of his kids.

So i was talking abt this with @elricmemes but have y'all ever considered dyslexic jeremy?

- so we all kno jere is an anxious mess but imagine that a lot of this time his attacks stemmed frm his dyslexia

- this boy is so paranoid that no1s gonna think hes smart enough or dedicated enough that he NEVER tells anyone about it

- until the end of his first year at uni where his mentor/tutor is like “i noticed that u struggled a lot with deadlines this year, is there any reason or solutions u have for next year?”

- and jeremy struggled so bad,, havin attack almost everyday on the weeks leading up to tests and deadlines

- and when his tutor asks he just,, breaks?? and talks about how the letters get jumbled up and how even tho he can speak perfectly fine, why cant he write with the same ease???

- and his tutor just comforts him and writes down the email of the learning support dep. and tells jeremy to arrange an appointment and he does!!!

- a week later hes walking out of the university grounds with a smile on his face bcos hes normal!!! none of the things he was paranoid about were true!!! hes not stupid!!! he just suffers visual stress, it has a name! and jeremy accepts tht hes dyslexic with pride

- he has another appointment a week later, a longer one this time, where they talk about special glasses and coloured page overlays and reading rulers and tinted writing pads and hes so overwhelmed by all the options

- but later that night he orders a set of page overlays and when they arrive he carries them everywhere with him even tho its only the blue and yellow ones that /really/ work

- half way thru his second year, after forgetting his sheets one too many times he decides to purchase tinted glasses and finds the cheapest pair from a really sketchy website

- they work just fine tho and jeremy reasons that he cant spend a lot of money bcos hes saving up for his younger siblings’ college funds

- he keeps these glasses till his fifth year

- it begins with him being so distracted with looking after jean that he forgets to bring his glasses with him to anywhere other than class

- so when jerejean, laila and alvarez are out for meals or just general group outings, Jeremy is always bugging jean to read things for him because it gives jere such bad migranes if he tries for too long without his overlays or glasses now

- jean claims sarcastically that he should buy Jeremy a pair with a chain so if he ever forgets where they r, theyll b dangling round his neck

- and jeremy just laughs and rubs at his neck saying that his are so beat up that a new pair would b welcome, even if it made him look like a grandad

- jean considers it for a while nd its always kind of a lingering thought, along with ‘how can i repay these guys’

- then when jeremys bday comes along a few weeks b4 jean just drags him to an optometrist/opticians, he takes a bunch of different tests and then jeans just like pick a pair of frames tht u like

- jeremy tries to look at prices but jean doesnt let him so he ends up picking these rly nice silver wireframes and jean is in heaven bcos jere looks so??? good???

- on jeremys bday jean just hands him a glasses case and when jere opens it up, attached to his new glasses is a looped chain so they can hang around his neck

- and Jeremy is so amazed bcos jean spent all this money on him??? jean cares enough abt him to go thru all of tht?? bUT ALSO jean has a sense of humour!!?

RFA MOTIVATION

Bless Emily for 1) writing these and 2) making sure I know how much she cares (so that I don’t completely give up in class)
These are just RFA Study Motivations but yeee (I’m guessing it’s mainly for an MC in college but even so if you are in high school or middle school enjoy them)

JAEHEE : “You’re a really hard worker, even if you don’t think so. You’re doing you’re best, and it’s more than enough”

JUMIN : “My love, are you stressing yourself out again? You need to stop comparing yourselves to others. They aren’t you.”

707 : “Come on, you can’t give up now! You’ve gotten so far! You have the Defender of Justice by your side, you can do anything! So stop frowning, you can do it!”

ZEN : “Jagiya, don’t overwork yourself. If you put things off, you’ll regret it later, and I won’t allow you to stress yourself more. Remember to pace yourself.”

YOOSUNG : “Hey, you’ve helped me through college, but what about yourself? We can study together, if it’ll help. It would be fun!”
Bonus : “You can’t tell me to study and then not do it yourself! That’s not fair!”

JIHYUN : “Dear, have you been stressed? You don’t seem as bright as you usually are. I’m here if you need someone to talk to. Don’t rush yourself. You have plenty of time. Just breathe.”

SAERAN : “Hey, why do you look so sad? What’s wrong? Is it school? Ugh, I know school isn’t the most fun thing, but it’ll be good for you in the long run. I wish I had the opportunity you did. Don’t worry too much. The future isn’t set in stone. There’s still time to improve yourself”
- @the-rfa-needs-hugs wrote these tho

anonymous asked:

I did my whole coming out to my manager on ny first day but hes still calling me "she" and it's stressing me out. Hes the only one i told tho, bc I dont know how these coworkers will take to me coming out, im so stressed and tired i just.... The worst part, for me, about getting a new job is having to come out to a whole new set of strangers. But the longer i wait the harder it is. Ugh. I tried reminding him that im a boy but idk if he even realizes what that means tbh. Im so tired.

Wow, okay. It’s been like. A year, more or less, since I’ve finally moved Camilla to her own blog, an entire year of… building her from the ground up, essentially. From a sideblog ( deactivated, used to be buxomknight ), to her own, spiffy new blog. Even though I fluctuated severely in activity due to real life situations and just general muse floating away… I just want to say thank you to you all. For giving me a chance. For liking posts, for interacting. For just being here. 

I generally don’t do bias lists. I usually just do small posts and that’s that, but… I’m doing this one because y’all deserve to be given the recognition you deserve for being here. For helping me grow and expand Camilla’s divergent path. For just… being a friend. Under the cut is the list + a few shout outs.

hi emma im a huge fan of yours, and i think ure the most suitable person to get advices from :) this yr is my final year in high school and im getting a ton of stress and its also the exam period for me rn and i just have a lot of doubt in myself tho i spent a lot of time studying. How do you try to stay positive in situations like this? Thankyou! And also if uve answered a similar qn before u dont have to again ~ ❤️

Hi! Thank you so much, that is such a nice compliment :-) Here are a few things I do:

  • set times to study - doing irregular study until you feel like you’ve done enough probably isn’t the way to go since it can make you unfocused and burn out. I like to replicate the school day for studying, so I have a set schedule and breaks which help me stay productive.
  • review the hard things - whilst sometimes looking at the complicated things makes you question everything, it is important to make sure you figure them out. It is sod’s law that it will come up in the exam if you don’t sort it out. When I put in the effort to study the harder parts, I feel more accomplish and proud of myself.
  • put things into perspective - exams are daunting and do have meaning but you shouldn’t work yourself up beyond a positive level of stress. There are always ways to get around a lower mark or improve should things not go to plan. Exams are important but they aren’t the be all and end all. It is much easier said that done though.
  • reward yourself - I would tend to finish studying several hours before bed. I would usually take the evenings to do something fun and positive so I’m not constantly thinking or wrapping myself up in study mode. Everyone needs a bit of time out.
  • hang out with your friends - they’re going through the same thing so it is great to blow off some steam with them! You could do a study group and then have a movie night or something.

I hope this helps xx

Jackunzel Week Day 2 

She doesn’t remember much, but there are flashes – a mischievous smile, a lithe body, a quick slide of bare feet on pavement… and eyes as blue as the sky in winter.

Your stress baking habits are really cute omg honestly I wish I could just make myself 108 cookies when I was anxious, I'd have a million cookies tbh but honestly how much more pure™ can you get?? You're so adorable??

Aaaaaaah it’s  more like confusion/frustration Baking because it has set parameters (I messed up decorating my cookies and burst into tears tho so not too successful) but THANK you????!

anonymous asked:

Just saw the mourning gecko thing, and i am so so fascinated just from your tags! I've never heard of any reptiles needing to be cohabbed, so thats like... W H O A. Thats awesome. Do you know much about that? Like they travel and live in groups? Also what are cloning geckos? I'm so... Gonna go do some research!

:DDDD!  THEY ARE SO COOL.  I don’t keep mourning geckos, but there are a few people on tumblr who do.  @fimbry @tokays @faithbeforefear have some babies. I think they’re all from tokays’ babies. Like if you hang around tokays long enough, she launches mourning geckos at u.


So mourning geckos are an all-female species.  That’s right.  Every mourning gecko u see is a girl.  What happened to the men geckos?  We don’t know.  We just don’t know. 


Anyway, when the time comes to make more little geckos, these females get together and just clone themselves.  Every egg they make is an ALMOST genetic clone.  I think they’ve got just enough genetic variation between them to prevent disasters.


BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT THEIR COLONIES BECAUSE THEY ARE SO COOL.  These guys are REALLY ‘social’, for lack of a better word.  Like most lizards have pretty much two vocalizations to each other: “SEX???” and “how about no???”  But mourning geckos set up hierarchies, body language, lots of vocalizations… it’s really cute.


They also simply don’t reproduce very well when kept alone.  Stress??? Do they need their lesbian lovers??? we don’t know.  we just don’t know.


As far as I know, they don’t travel in groups or anything.  They just set up shop and go, “yeah, this looks like a cool place for our lesbian lizard commune”.


These girls are TINY tho.  They’re more of a ‘sit and watch them bicker among themselves’ sort of species rather than a ‘sit on my shoulder and watch me play dragon age’ sort of species.  They’re also fast.  If they get out, they are GONE.   They eat bugs and crested gecko diet. If they aren’t fed well enough, they’ll eat their babies and eggs.


other cool parthenogenic species: bynoe’s geckos and some whiptail species!
