there used to be a time when i was normal

Hey, man, listen. We all miss Shiro. I remember what a thrill it was just to meet him for the first time, when the two of us carried him out of that Garrison hospital.

You’re not the only one hurting, man. We’re all right here with you! But you know that he would be the first one to tell us that we have to move on.

someone gestured to me to go talk to him while i was behind the counter today. so i go to the register bc i think maybe he's ordering. suddenly he's shoving his phone in my face and complaining that our app updated and now he has to type in his credit card info every time instead of it being saved. when he finally finishes he says, in a normal speaking tone, "im still gonna use it though. beats waitinf in line." kill me. like sorry your credit information is now at less risk i guess?

Uploading a sketch cuz I’m a lazy, sick bitch. Here’s a shiny Blaziken.

Story time!

When I was a kid, my father used to get me GBA roms and the emulator to keep me occupied. Most of the games were in Japanese and one of them was Pokemon Ruby. As a Pokemon fan I WAS STOKED!

Normally I’m a grass starter. But when I loaded up the game and checked the starters, the Torchic caught my eye. Reason being it looked like a baby Ho-oh - and I love Ho-oh on my Gold version. I didn’t even know it’s original name (because it was in Japanese) so I chose it and named the Torchic Ho-oh.

Even after getting the English hard copy I still chose Torchic and named him after Ho-oh. To this day I’ve been strongly compelled to choose Torchic over the others in Gen 3.

Rosy, did you catch in the sizzle reel how Madi describes Clarke as the "fairest and bravest warrior" who climbed the tower to save her friends? It's a total reset of being the Princess locked in L's tower. But shhhh, don't let the CLs hear us say that, lol. ;) And you know who the kickass princess normally falls for right? Well, just ask Rapunzel in Tangled...I think it was her knight....ahhhh, justice feels good.

I just watched it again. Oh, it was for us. Well, it was the story of The 100, which is the show that WE have been watching. Not that other show, that the CLs were watching where the hero was not Clarke. Or Bellamy. Or The 100. The ACTUAL heroes, according to Clarke’s story.

The whole climbing of the tower thing? We’ve got it three times, really. The first time when Bellamy was trying to save Clarke. Then, well, we kind of have BOTH of them attacking that tower to save everyone from ALIE. Clarke got kidnapped then, and Bellamy had to save her, and then they were able to save humanity together. And then the third time when Clarke was all alone and she was doing it to save her friends from the “monster” of praimfaya. So she’s the prince now. 

The whole prince/princess thing keeps getting switched around. They trade places in that one. I don’t consider Bellamy her knight though. I consider them Queen and King, not prince and princess. But I still think the story being told is that romantic connection. And epic romance even. A mythic one. 

Someone said that the sizzle reel felt like a Bellarke fanvid. LOL. nope. Official bidness. Hey, what can we tell them. The 100 is about Clarke and Bellamy and their relationship and how they save the world. Not our fault if they never got that and keep trying to watch a different show. I don’t actually get why people keep doing that. You just end up getting hurt when you put fanon over canon. Fanfiction is great, but it’s got no control over canon. 

Anonymous asked:

silly grammar question. I know you absolutely have a new paragraph every time a different character speaks. but what if one character is speaking for an extended period of time? like for an example, a huge speech. or maybe they’re just talking a lot. and whatever they’re saying goes on far too long to be a paragraph. when and how do you break it? do you end quotations marks and add new ones? I’m completely confused on this! 


What you do is break up the speech into normal paragraphs (using the rules we normally use when creating new paragraphs in writing). The first paragraph of dialogue will have the quotation mark at the beginning but not at the end. Every new paragraph that is part of the same dialogue/speech will have a beginning quotation mark but not an end one until you reach the final paragraph of the dialogue. Then you put the end quotation mark. For the sake of the following example I’m going to make new paragraphs wherever, just to keep the example short. Anyway, here’s how it looks:

“Let me tell you how it all went down,” Jessica said. “I was late for my flight but thankfully my Uber driver knew a shortcut to the airport. I got on the plane, it was a long flight, kid kicking my seat, etc.

“So we land in New York twenty minutes late and I knew I would never make my connecting flight to Philly, so of course i have the brilliant idea to drive.

“Three hours later I was broken down at the side of the highway halfway between New York and Philly. Needless to say I missed my meeting.”

Personal Confession

I lost my virginity to a stripper I met online. She made subtle references to being a sub/lg. I convinced her I was a Dom even though I hadn’t ever had sex. I made her edge twice a day for 5 days leading up to us meeting. She came over, I made her cum 13 times. Her legs were shaking uncontrollably. She squirted for the first time without her wand when I fingered her. She literally covered my cock in cream and cum. I face fucked the hell out of her. Did missionary, doggy, cow girl, reverse cowgirl, I laid her stomach down and made her grab her ankles while I face fucked her again. Her favorite was me on top of her from behind as I smothered her. She would get so tight when I choked her. Now, I’m in a normal relationship and the sex just isn’t the same. I last forever because it’s just so vanilla.

So it’s time for an update. She was super nice. When I told her I was trans she just nodded asked if I was okay, if I’m out, how I found out etc….without ever questioning my gender, not even a sceptical look (I’m used to a different treatment by my GP).
She told me she doesn’t do gender therapy, but gave me some numbers and told me that as soon as I got my t letter I could come back and she would take care of the dosage and shots.
She’ll do a blood work next week to see if my hormonal levels are okay, and she told me that she would do the necessary exams to get my t letter.
So yeah, pretty successful I’d say. You can’t imagine just how relieved I am.

Arella having random memories at 2 in the morning while on flu medicine:

I remember when the youth pastor at our church wiped out on a skateboarding accent (he was like 52 and trying to be “hip and with it” and it was embarrassing), he was gone for a solid eight months. Rather than sub in someone else, they just put us all throughout our mega church doing various tasks before church service. I was already volunteering in the nursery, looking after toddlers, so I was put there full-time - I didn’t actually go to church services, I’d spent my entire Sundays handing out goldfish crackers and helping kids color pictures of Moses. 

When he came back, we were told to gather again in the youth room for things to go back to normal. I remember walking in, and a lot of parents being there, telling him how much they prayed for him and trying to get a good word in with Jesus (and our head pastor). They turned, looked at me, and I watched every mother of a boy in that youth group go completely pale.

Because in those eight months, little Arella had hit puberty like an 18-wheeler. Seemingly overnight I’d gotten a figure that required adult-sized clothing to fit into, one that made every other girl in that room, even the girls older than I was, look like children in comparison. It would take two entire years for the rest of the girls my age to catch up with me, so I stuck out like a sore thumb. 

My family and I were called into a meeting held by the pastor’s wife, and the “concerned mothers”, a group of about 30-something women who all had sons around my age. I was told that because of how I could lead boys to temptation, and help Satan keep his grasp on them, I wasn’t allowed to attend youth group anymore, and would have to stay in the nursery full time.

My family agreed, because they were super religious types who had problems with my body already. I was MORTIFIED, and dealt with feeling like my body was ugly, grotesque, and worse yet, SINFUL. Like I’d done something wrong to have something I couldn’t control. I’d be dressed in sweaters in the middle of a North Carolina summer, or layers upon layers of things to try and cover up the fact I had big boobs. One particular time, when the son of the associate pastor was caught staring at my ass, I was pulled aside and had a windbreaker tied around my waist to cover it up, and had to walk around church like that for hours, humiliated.

It’s been over a decade, and I’m still undoing that damage. Even when I look at my body in a sexual light, it’s one of those “this is sexual because it’s forbidden and wrong and sinful”, rather than “I’m sexy and pretty”. I don’t know when I’ll finally break totally free of that.

And I’m so mad whenever I see it still going on with girls today.

Immortal LarsTheory 

With everybody asking questions on Lars’s immortality, I decided to do my own research.

Heart Beat 

When Steven listened to Lars’s heartbeat it took 6 seconds per beat or 12 bpm (Beats Per Minute). This is far less than the average bpm for a human around Lars’s age. It would usually be 70-100 bpm on average (to keep it simple I used 80 bpm). This means his heart is beating at 15% the average for a boy his age. So his body is functioning at 15% of the time it normally would be. So if his body ages at that rate given the average male life expectancy being around 80 years would mean he will live to 1,200 years!

Lion

Applying this to Lion is pretty easy, the average bpm of a healthy lion is about 60 bpm, giving our lion 9 bpm. Lions in the wild live to be about 16 making our lion live to about 240 years.In “Buddy’s Book” Rose is seen with lions and many people theorize one of them died and that’s how Lion was created. In “Historical Friction” it is stated that beach city was founded nearly 200 years ago. So that would make lion around 200 years old give or take. 

The Trees 

 Some people have said that a number of leaves on the each tree represents the amount of time they have left, Lars’s tree is full and young, while Lion’s has only a few clumps of leaves. This corresponds quite nicely, with Lars having over a 1,000 years left and lion having only about 40.

If you enjoyed this please like and repost, thank you!

Pls don’t stan Jin for his Money :/ I’m honestly sad whenever I see ppl suddenly stanning him because he’s the son of a well off family. Can’t y'all just chill and appreciate the fact that he actually never said a word about this. He worked his way up to the top just like the other members did, and he never even complained after all of these years when bighit treated him like shit, and didn’t even gave him the lines/screen time he deserved.if you think about it, Jin could’ve had it so much more easier, but he chose the rough path and I honestly respect him for that.He always seemed like a normal kid (I’m talking about how humble he always is,how down to earth, how weird af he could get lol , how shameless he can get *in a good way lol* ,how funny he is) and he still is a normal kid. He never used his status to feel superior and was always there, dotting on the younger members. He even makes dad jokes, ppl, DAD JOKES, WHAT KIND OF CHAEBOL’S SON DOES THAT ON NATIONAL TV??!!! Jin never gave a flying f about anyone’s ill opinions about him and was always confident even if he embarrassed his members with his flying kisses. He’s literally just like any other 25 y/o guy who’s having a blast at work with his friends . Please Love Jin in his natural habitat, not for his money.

That’s all :) ❤

How i study languages

A couple of days ago @bonbonlanguage asked if i have a post about what i do in order to learn a new language so i thought i should try to make a post about that.

The beginning

As a beginner i always do the same stuff. I research a couple of apps or i just see if my favourite choices have a version for my target language. Usually i use: 

Memrise
Fun Easy Learn
9000 words
50Languages
HiNative
babbel, busuu (rarely but i still have them on my phone)

+some sites and specific apps only for my target language

I choose a grammar book and i take notes from from it. So far i chose books from 3 collections: Teach Yourself, Colloquial and For Dummies.

How i take notes from a book

I ignore the excercises, in my notebook you will see only grammar notes and sometimes irregular verbs at the end, but you will never see exercises. (i’ll say later what i do with the exercises)
If the book has a pretty good structure, i just copy what’s in there. (when i say good structure i mean that i can’t extract main ideas or just a formula              e.g. stem+ending)
The theory is written in black or blue, the examples are written with a pencil and if there is a keyword, i highlight it. When i have languages with articles based on the gender of the words, like French, i use a pink and a light blue pen so when i study the articles i can see the difference. 
Now, i said that in my notebook you won’t see exercises, true, that’s because i solve them on another notebook or just on a blank sheet of paper. If your book has exercises after the grammar lesson, solve them. If half of them are wrong, you will take a break of 1-2 days (in which you will study the grammar rules) and when you feel prepared, you solve again those exercises. (you are allowed to have mistakes but try to have at least 70% of the exercises correct).
What i do after i finish a book
After i finish that grammar book, i take another one. However, this time i don’t copy-paste like i did the first time. I read what informations are there and if there are new rules/exceptions, i just write them on a sticky note and add it to my notebook. After i finish my 2nd book i usually move on to the next stage but if i feel that i missed out something, i take a 3rd book and do what i did with the 2nd one.
As a beginner i have the habit to read my notes once a week, as an intermediate learner i rarely do that.

Don’t understand that as a beginner you only take notes! Sometimes when i get bored i just study on memrise/vocabulary app and that sometimes can last 1 week, sometimes 2. I even like to use InternetPolyglot with my target language and an old target language. (e.g. I learn new words in Spanish through Danish) 

After i have a proper notebook

Usually when i finish my book and i add all the exceptions/rules that i found in the 2nd book i also have learned 1.500-2.000 words in that period of time so i want to test my skills.

When i feel confident enough, i start using duolingo. I use it as a test tool, not as a learning one! I take the shortcuts and usually in 2 days i finish a tree. (at the last part of the tree you don’t have a shortcut for everything so you just have to take the shortcut of every skill there which gets boring)

Since Duolingo is pretty advanced with his lessons, at the end i can consider myself a B1 learner. (if you have an amazing memory and skills, you can say you are B2, but Duolingo can’t get you further than that)

The intermediate stage

Whoever followed my blog for a while knows that i have 2 nightmares in my language learning journey, the intermediate stage and the irregular verbs.

For how to overcome a plateau in the intermediate stage i made a post here. (sooner or later you will hit a plateau)

Back to what i do. No book anymore, duolingo is done, this is the moment when i start to use my skills. If i didn’t use 50Languages as a beginner, i use it now. It has 100 audios so i use them to get used to the sound of the words in case i don’t know them and i also use it as a resources to learn new words. On Memrise i try to find advanced/intermediate and i use 9000 words and Fun Easy Learn. 

At this level the main problem is the lack of vocabulary so i try to learn as many new words as i can. However, since using apps can get boring after a while, i use the classic method of learning vocabulary, reading.

How i memorize/learn new words

Most of the time i just use apps/sites. However, everyone had moments when we couldn’t remember a word regardless of how many times we tried to memorize it. When i have to deal with this, i usually make a mnemonic. (e.g. afslutte = to finish, to end, to conclude; in order to remember the meaning i think at a key sentence: If you don’t study you’ll END up as a slut. [harsh example, i know, but it stays in my mind])

If my mnemonic method doesn’t work, i write the word a couple of times, sometimes with my left hand too since i focus more then. (i’m right-handed) and if i still can’t remember the meaning, i’ll start making some sentences where i’ll use that word.

How i read in my target language

Just as a side note, if i feel confident with my skills (that has happened only once) i read books, if not, i read comics until i feel confident enough to try books.

I have 2 methods because sometimes the first one doesn’t work. So, for French i just read and try to guess the meaning of a word and if i can’t, then i search it. Why i do this for French? It’s easier somehow and i can guess the meaning very well. Sometimes i even highlight words and search the meaning later just to analyze them more.

However, this method doesn’t work on Danish. For Danish i have to read once the entire paragraph and then see what i understood from it. If there is a certain word that it’s unknown, i’ll search it. Since Danish has a lot of structures, i tend to use HiNative to translate those because normal online translators aren’t good for these. After i have all the unknown words, i will look over the paragraph again.

With all these unknown words, i usually make flashcards on Quizlet and practice them from time to time.

Sometimes when i’m in a hurry or i’m not in the mood for studying new words in big quantities, i use WordBrewery or Clozemaster. When i use these i always write the new words on a piece of paper or i just add them directly to Quizlet.

HiNative

I mentioned it above so i should tell you how i use it in order to improve since many might not be familiar to it. It’s an app where you ask questions and natives will answer.  I use HiNative mostly after i read, watch a movie or learn something from memrise.

For what i use it?

- ask for differences
- ask for examples with new words that i didn’t find a context for
- ask for translation from target language to English since not everything is easy to translate as a beginner/intermediate

Listening skills

Listening is a very interesting skill because you can combine it with speaking and reading or just focus only on it.

Listening+reading

In this category you find movies/cartoon/series with subs. Usually i don’t do anything when i watch series/movies because i guess the meaning of the unknown words but if there is a certain word that i can’t understand, i will write it down and search it’s meaning.

Listening+speaking

This involves 2 things. I either talk to someone or i just talk to myself/a toy/the cat. I tend to use the 2nd method most of the time. (it’s not that i dislike talking, i just don’t feel confident enough to use my skills until i’m not sure that i know most of the things/vocab i need to know). I start the conversation like “hey, how are you?” and then i ask myself “how was your day?”. For this question i have to make 2 answers, the reality with what has happened, and an imaginary version for my other side who’s “talking”.

Listening

Here i just watch videos on youtube, listen to 50languages, a podcast or songs. If i do listen to songs, sometimes i try to find the lyrics and see if i understand everything, if not, i’ll look for the unknown words and after i start to sing too. (disney songs are great because most have lyrics on youtube already)

Writing skills

Here i have 2 choices, i either find someone or i just write in a notebook/diary. The purpose of this is to figure out what vocab/structures/expressions i don’t know. 

Speaking skills

It’s not that i dislike talking, i just focus on this skill at the end usually. I improve my other skills and the speaking one improves in a weird way too. However, at some point i just ask people who i know for a long time and i feel comfortable with to talk to me on skype/on the phone.

Extra

Idioms are everywhere in a language. At some point you have to deal with them. If i find them on memrise, i study them there, if not, i’ll look for them and make flashcards. These flashcards have only the idiom in my target language on them and that’s it. I don’t write the translation. I force myself to remember the meaning.

Also, when i don’t know the pronunciation for something, i use Forvo.

The advanced stage

Here i just learn idioms and some advanced vocabulary at the beginning. After these, i stop caring. I consider my learning journey almost done so i just enjoy my life using the language. I read without worrying that i don’t know words, i watch shows without worrying that i don’t understand what i hear, i can sing without worrying that i just say words with no meaning but similar sounds to what i hear.

Note: This is how I learn languages. I can’t say it will work for everyone but it works for me.

p.s. sometimes Fun Easy Learn and 50Languages are set in another language, not my native one or English.

not that I don’t love larry questions because i do but i just wish sometimes that they would just ask him about louis normally like, “hey bty is coming out the same day as dunkirk are you excited to hear it ? have you heard it already ?” idk like i think its kinda strange that they only ask about louis in a jokey “oh fans think blah blah blah” way STILL as if they dont have anything to connect harry to louis except via fan theories like about sweet creature or the hand thing when thats not true they are both releasing big projects this friday and they could be mentioned normally if they really wanted to, the fan stuff to bring up larry is cool like that doesn’t bother me we get used for this shit all the time i just wish i could hear them talk about eachother like seriously like i would’ve loved hearing harry talking about how he heard the song already or how he was excited to hear it this Friday just like i would love to know what song is louis fave from harrys album or hear him talk excitedly about Dunkirk - i rather have that then have them squirm around some random fan larry question … but i guess that’s just me lol.

Advice for native speakers of a language when encountering foreigners learning their language

Of course this is aimed at people who want to help others learn their native language. It’s based on personal experiences from when I first came to France. If the language learner you meet is advanced and speaks fluently you might not have to do any of these. But I think they’re good to keep in mind when meeting new language learners.

1. Slow down a bit. Don’t do that thing often shown in movies where people speak super loud and as if in slow motion. Speaking super slow doesn’t help much with understanding or learning and shouting is useless unless you’re in a noisy environment. Just slightly slow down your normal talking speed, it makes it easier to recognize more individual words and phrases. And maybe dial down on colloquialisms a bit at first.

2. Give the person time to process what you said. Sometimes it can take a few moments to realize what was just said to us when we don’t speak the language well (even if the person is speaking slower than their normal speed). So don’t just assume the person didn’t understand you if they don’t respond immediately, give them a moment first.

3. Ask if they understood what you said once in a while. Also offer to repeat or explain things. Some people won’t have a problem letting you know if they didn’t understand a word or a phrase, but others might feel bad asking you to repeat yourself multiple times (I know I do). So just ask every once in a while to make sure they’re still following you.

4. Use simple words to explain things. If the person is just starting out with their language learning then they don’t have a large vocabulary so using unnecessarily long sentences filled with fancy words will just confuse them even more. Simpler is always better.

Example: I once had to call a phone company’s help line to resolve an issue. I told the person I didn’t speak French very well, carefully explained the problem and he spent ten minutes talking at normal speed, explaining something to me and I didn’t understand a word. When I told him I didn’t understand he spent even longer repeating what he said and going in even more detail and I still had no idea what he was saying. I was too embarrassed and didn’t want to spend twenty more minutes on the phone with this guy so I just told him I got it and hung up. The next time I called, someone else answered and they explained it to me clearly in a fraction of the time and I understood them perfectly.

So keep your explanations short and simple.

5. If they can’t think of a word in your language and say it in another language you have in common, tell them the word in your language before moving on with the conversation. So many times people have just nodded in understanding and moved on with the conversation without telling me the French word when I’ve used an English word for something in the middle of a sentence. It can be a bit frustrating to have to interrupt the conversation to ask for clarification after every sentence (and for those of us on the shy and/or socially anxious side it’s also nerve-wracking). Conversations will flow much smoother if you just throw in the translation of the word in your language and then move on. Also

6. Don’t automatically switch to another common language after they use a word or a phrase from that language when they can’t think of them in your language. Ask first. It might be easier for both of you, but it doesn’t help them learn your language. If you want to practice that other language with them then make a deal about when you’re going to speak which language with each other. That way you’ll both get to practice your target language. So just ask them if they want to continue in that language, but don’t switch without asking. Again, some people will be more than comfortable in telling you which language they’d rather be speaking in, but others might not.

That’s all I can think of for now. Feel free to add your own advice

Michael Mell is on the spectrum

In BMC- the clips we’ve seen of the show- in all the scenes where Michael is wearing his hoodie, if he is stressed, or has something to lose (when Jeremy is receiving the squip and Michael is apprehensive, when Jeremy goes to get the girl, when Jeremy stomps off after saying he hates the school, when Jeremy hasn’t acknowledged him all day because of optic nerve blocking, when Jeremy chooses to side with the squip and the upgrade instead of following Michael, etc) whenever something stressful, unnerving, or hurtful happens- MICHAEL WEARS THE HOOD UP TO COVER HIS HEAD-
This may not seem like a big deal to some people but as someone on the autism spectrum- this is a clear coping mechanism that a lot of people on the spectrum use-
It helps to kind of hide you a bit and give you some kind of little relief and sanctuary- the same thing with headphones- wearing headphones can help block out unwanted noise that you are overly sensitive to and drown it out with noise that brings you comfort (in michael’s case- sometimes Bob Marley)
Another common trait in people on the spectrum, is anxiety over change. People on the spectrum typically grow attached and accustomed to their routines and get startled and disoriented by change. This is another trait that can be seen in michael- in the opening number- he is introduced for the very first time singing:
“Jeremy, my buddy, how’s it hanging? Lunch is banging. Got my sushi, got my slushy and more!”
First of all, it is arguable that when Michael says “Got my sushi, got my slushy, and more” it is a glimpse of these said patterns that tend to fall into place and make people on the spectrum more at ease. Notice how he doesn’t say “I got sushi and a slushy” he says “got my sushi, got my slushy”- he states it simply like this because Jeremy is his best friend and knows his patterns and habits- which is why he so plainly states it like everybody knows about them. I think this is an example of Michael’s system- he gets his sushi, he gets his slushy, he listens to his music, he wears his same hoodie, and he goes to school.
Second of all (and this is more debatable than the rest) before Michael goes on to share his routinely patterns, something that stuck out to me was that Michael wasn’t as socially adept as other characters- he addresses his friend and does the socially acceptable thing by asking how he is doing, but then immediately moves on without receiving an answer. This isn’t because he is selfish or a dick- in my mind it’s another trait of people on the spectrum. For people with high functioning autism, social interactions can be extremely difficult because it is hard to comprehend what is socially acceptable and what isn’t. This can make some relationships hard because they may come off as rude or uncaring when in reality they just aren’t able to easily slide into conversation and act completely normally.
Third of all, when he says “and more” I thought it was cute because it showed his excitement for having accomplished something. For people off of the spectrum, little things like accepting a little change isn’t anything out of the norm because life is unpredictable and things change all the time. But for people on the spectrum, even little things like being able to roll with one simple change can be a huge victory. Change is a lot harder for us so being able to deal with slight change is a big deal. After this line- Michael says “the roll was Mekhi maki and I’m feeling kind of cocky, cause the girl at sev-elev gave me a generous pour”. Just the little change of the extra pour, extra slushy, Michael was able to accept and that was a win for him, enough to make him feel confident and cocky.

Throughout the musical and album there is more evidence of this but I think that it is at least debatable that Michael may be on the spectrum. Honestly it wouldn’t surprise me for George Salazar to portray a character like that as he has been good with mental health representation in the past. I honestly love the idea of an autistic character in a musical because there isn’t a whole lot of positive representation elsewhere. You don’t have to agree but I’m probably going to always see Michael now as a representation for me

Castiel watches Dean masturbate a lot.

The first time it happened, it was almost an accident. Dean had been in the shower, relieving some tension, and ‘Cas’ had simply been the thought in his mind. He must have thought it pretty hard too (though he would never admit to yearning or longing or praying as Cas had said), because Cas felt it.

It had been a huge surprise for both of them when Cas showed up in the bathroom, to say the least. But it was a nice surprise, and Dean had welcomed Cas to stay.

THINGS I LEARNED DURING MY GAP YEAR

hi everybody! it’s definitely been a while, huh? i hope everyone is well and has been/ is studying hard for their end of year exams! good luck!

since my gap year is coming to an end, i decided i wanted to make a few posts about it to help some of you guys, who have been asking me about my experience, out. these are a few things i’ve learned during my gap year.

► it’s ok to be the only one taking a gap year

this was a really big thing for me. no one i knew decided to take one at the end of our secondary school career. i was the only person in my big old school, as for as i’m aware of, that chose to do so. i have to admit it’s really weird to be the only one in your friend group not going to university and experiencing that exciting time. in belgium it really isn’t a common thing to do either. especially not after secondary school. but! and this is a big but: you will. a gap year doesn’t mean you’re never going to go to uni/ college and experience the same as your friends! it’s a year out to work or discover what you really want to do in life. and if it just so happens you find out you prefer working straight away, that’s totally cool! whatever suits you! i just hope my friends learn to accept others who choose to work instead of studying instead of making them feel like they’re just too “dumb” for uni/college. we all choose different paths in life. let’s all try to live with that.

► keep yourself busy

one of the things most adults told me was to keep myself busy during my gap year, because otherwise i’d become incredibly lazy. for my part, this is so true. there were a few weeks at the start of october that i wasn’t working, and i became such really lazy. i slept in almost every day and i didn’t feel motivated to do anything. i also felt quite isolated and lonely. you don’t have to work to keep yourself busy though! you could travel, pick up a hobby, get better at something you’ve already learned, etc. as long as you’re keeping yourself busy and making the most out of your gap year! why would you be taking one otherwise?

► you will lose friends and make new ones

don’t be afraid of the fact you’ll eventually lose some old friends. the people who don’t invest in your friendship as much as you do don’t deserve you honestly! i started feeling lonely too, since a few of my friends never made any effort to keep in contact with me, or meet up with me, even though i tried time and time again. it’s totally normal and will happen to everyone.this doesn’t mean you should just give up on all your friendships though! but trust me: you’ll know what i’m talking about at some point in your life. at work i met a group of really great young people like me, and we have become a really close group of friends. we take out breaks together, go out after work and hang out on our days off. they’ve really given me the kind of friendship i was looking for, and i’m really grateful for that.

► don’t feel so guilty about having fun

this was a biggie for me. i can’t really explain it, but i started feeling guilty about having so much fun. in school there weren’t that many times i went out or hung out with my friends because i was focusing on studying, so whenever i made plans this year, i felt really weird about it. almost as if i was having too much fun? this is a really silly feeling and i’ve learned to let that part of me go. it’s important to bond with your friends and yourself by exploring places and making memories. don’t feel bad about it.

► money, money, money

i think everyone has a hard time figuring out how to budget and save the first time round. (if not: you should write a book for all of us who did struggle!) i’m in a position where i can save a very large part of my money each month because i only pay my parents a little each month. keeping in mind, my goal was double of what i started with, i’m incredibly close. i’m using all my money to pay for my tuition fees for 2 years and part of my rent, so i’m doing a great job so far, even if i do say so myself.  it’s not so easy for others, and it’s so normal to struggle if you’re not used to working and earning a steady income each month. don’t be too hard on yourself about this: you’re young and clueless.

► in the end: it’s only one year

it’s really easy to get it into your head that this year is going to be hard and will feel like it lasts forever, but time honestly flies. when i first starting on the first of july time seemed to go so slowly. every day seemed to last an age, and i wondered what it would feel like to only have a few months left. i’m at that stage now, and every day seems to fly by. i was told it would take me six months to get used to working, but it only took me 3. by the time october came around i was so used to getting up at a certain time, finishing at 6pm, coming home, eating, practicing on the piano and going to bed. it doesn’t seem that exciting, but we’re all creatures of habit and routine. i feel like i’ve changed a lot as a person, but also like i haven’t at all. in some aspects i’m much wiser, but at the same time i still feel like a lost kid. a year really isn’t a long time at all. 

those were just some things i’ve learned so far. i still have a total of 9 weeks left until i’m packing up and flying to barcelona to start an incredibly exciting chapter of my life. who knows what will happen! i’ll be making a few more posts about gap years, so if you’re interested in taking one, just keep an eye out!

lots of love, lou.
