they actually left a note

Have you ever found yourself wanting a metric ton of DAI music? Have you ever thought to yourself, aw man, DAI’s soundtrack was 15 hours shorter than I wanted it to be? If that sounds like you, then this is a link for you.

I’ve ripped all the music from this game - that is, all the ambient snippets of music that you hear while running around in the world, and all the music that happens in cutscenes - and it turns out there’s 16 hours (1.6 gigs) of it.

(- here’s the download link -)

So if you’ve found yourself wishing you had the heaps of music that never made it to the official soundtrack, you can now roll around in hours of it.

“W-What,” you stuttered, not finding the right words to speak up.

Taking a deep breath you tried to calm down and canalize all the emotions you were experiencing. You haven’t seen him in years. The last goodbye you gave to him wasn’t a good one. Matter fact; you didn’t actually said goodbye to him. Instead you left a note in his room saying; ‘I’m sorry but I can’t live like this’.

There was no time for goodbyes or explanations.

The only thing you wanted was being far away as possible from everything.

“What are you doing here, Scott?” you spat.

His name felt extremely foreign coming out of your mouth. It used to be the most normal thing for you to pronounce. It’s been nearly six years since you looked him in the eye yet he still looks and sounds the same. You couldn’t help to wonder if he was the same person you knew and grew up with? A lot can change in a person in six years, you were the vivid example of it.

Lunch // Renjun

Originally posted by nctmark

Smiling to himself at the lunch box on his lap, Renjun blinked at the envelope that accompanied it. Tapped to the underside of the container, he was gentle in getting it off. You generally left small notes, but never an actual letter.

The outside was decorated with stars, and doodles; all surrounding the words; ‘Baby Firetruck.’

Opening up the paper, and unfolding the baby blue letter, he went ignorant to the world. His eyes roamed, reading your words;

Renjun ♡ My sweet Prince,

I know this is a little different from my usual lunch notes, but, you need something more today. I noticed you’ve been down lately, and as much as you’re going to hate this- I asked Mark, and Chenle about it… Why didn’t you tell me how you felt?

I know you’re stressed from performing, and practicing- I obviously understand that, but your tooth? You could have told me. You’re beautiful, and do you know what my favorite feature of yours, is? Your smile, Sweetheart. It’s charming, and makes you, you. When practice is over, come see me, okay? No, I won’t lecture you, but you need to be cheered up, and know just how lovely I think you are.

                           Sincerely, your Princess,
                                                                y/n ♡ 

The red-head felt slightly guilt at not telling you his thoughts, but he couldn’t wipe the smile off of his face. Cheeks a rosy red, and his lip between his teeth; he felt the need to tell you how he felt right now.

Glancing over to Chenle, he asked to barrow his phone for a second to message you. It as the first time he’d be using the words, but he needed to do it now before he lost his confidence.

Giving the boy his phone back, he sat back down to eat, laughing softly at the response Chenle gave behind him; ‘Eww, not on my phone!’

It Started With A Storm

Hello! Cid here. I’ve never written fanfiction before or published any writing online, so I’m new to this. If there is anything I could do to improve this, please tell me! This will continue to be a series, but I’m not sure about the upload schedule. There are not a lot of warnings in this chapter but this will develop into to some deeper parts of Alexander’s past in the next chapter, so please be careful! If you have any questions, don’t be scared to ask them!

Ship: Jamilton

Words: 1320

Warnings: Minor swearing

It started with Alexander not checking the weather. The sky’s looked bad that afternoon but looked worse that evening. He wasn’t sure where John, Lafayette and Hercules were, because they were typically already by Alex’s side hours before thunder starts rolling. Alexander was currently sitting up in his bed, messy hair all over his face, tears brimming as he checks the weather on his phone. He decides that going to The Revolutionary Set Minus One’s dorm would be the best decision, seeing as the little do not disturb signal was next to the group chat. He didn’t really care though, so he sent the guys a quick ‘where are you didn’t you check the weather’ text and got out of bed.


Alexander picked up a black Twenty Øne Piløts T-shirt off the ground and put it on. It was a little big, going past his hips and ending about halfway down his red gym shorts. Alex picked up his phone and puts it in his shorts’ pocket, but doesn’t bother putting on shoes while he jog-runs down the hallway to Laf, John, and Herc’s dorm.

To Alexander’s horror, he arrives at the Revolutionary Set’s dorm and on the door, below a sign that reads ‘Revolutionary Set -Alex’, there’s a post it note that reads ‘Gone fishing for women’. That’s immensely ironic because John is gay as fuck and Lafayette and Hercules are practically married, even though they aren’t even dating….yet.  Alex considers heading to his sisters’ dorms, and it seems like a good idea until he realizes he would have to walk outside, into the storm, to get to his sisters’ dorms so that’s a definite no. A loud crack of thunder draws Alex out of his stance in front of Revolutionary Set’s dorm and brings him back to reality. Before he knows it tears are dangerously close to spilling from his eyes and he sprints back to his dorm in fear of having memories resurface.

He rushes into his dorm room with a flurry, slamming the door shut and leaning against it to support himself, with tears still threatening to from his eyes, and notices that Jefferson, his dorm mate, was at his desk observing Alexander’s’ erratic behavior. He wasn’t there when Alexander left. How long did Alex stand in front of the Revo Set’s dorm? Alexander was creeped out for a second, but remembered that Jefferson and Alexander were unfortunately assigned the same dorm. They were Columbia’s well known arch rivals. Some say they hated each other out of jealousy, some say for challenge, and rumors go round that its sexual tension. ‘If they weren’t enemies they’d be lovers’. What kind of disgustingly cliche crap is that? Jefferson coughs to catch Alex’s attention, because at the moment, random space had preoccupied him.  Before Alexander can explain himself for the commotion, Jefferson asks a very important question that  neither of them can answer.


“Why aren’t you with the rest of the gremlins?” Alexander stopped and thought for a second, realizing that out of the year and a half he’s known Jefferson, and 6 months he’s lived with him, Jefferson has come to notice he spends storm days with the Revolutionary set.

“I-I actually-y honestly don’t know actually. They left-t a note saying-g that they went to go 'fish for women’”. Alex’s voice shook a bit due to the buzz of emotions. Alex prayed to everything good and holy, like Doritos, that Thomas didn’t notice the unsteady quality in his voice. It would make him seem weak and vulnerable. That’s the last thing Alex wanted an enemy to witness. He still stood in the awkward position of leaning against the door as if he was trying to keep someone out. Alex refused to make eye contact with Jefferson, who was still sitting on his magenta velvet covered sheets across the room. Alex expected Jefferson to not speak again, seeing as he got his answer, but Jefferson said something that Alex took the wrong way.

“Those fuckers.”

Alex paused for a moment. Of course Jefferson wouldn’t want to be around a sniveling crying mess like Hamilton. Alexander turned and started reaching for the door handle.
“I g-get if you d-don’t want to deal with me. I-I’ll walk over to my sisters-”
Once again, Jefferson had surprised Alex. When Alex had turned the doorknob halfway, someone’s hand met his shoulder. Alexander jumped a little at the contact, and turned sharply to see Jefferson standing behind him.

“No no you don’t have to do that. I’m just a little annoyed that your support group went to go get shit faced when they knew you would need them tonight. And I am NOT letting you walk in the rain.“
Thomas was smiling sweetly by now, giving Alexander a warm, fluttering feeling in his chest. Like butterflies. But don’t you only get butterflies around people you like though? And Alex didn’t like his pompous pringle of a roommate, even if he did have a flattering figure and an amazing face- wait a second.


Alexander decided to speak up after a few seconds of silence. “So what are we g-gonna do about-t i-it?” And as if on cue, more thunder rumbled a little bit louder this time, making Alex submit to water in his eyes, letting out a small whimper as the tears rolled down his face.

“Well I’m going to do this.” Jefferson scooped Alexander into his arms, bridal style. Alexander yet out an embarrassing squeak, surprised by being picked up.

“You’re a lot lighter than I expected to be, Hamilton. You need to eat sometimes.”

Jefferson easily strode over to Alex’s bed, and set Hamilton down carefully.

Alexander was reminded of his self hate towards his body, something he developed when he was still with Lee. Alex mumbled something, thinking Jefferson wouldn’t hear him.

“Charles likes- liked me when I’m when I’m skinny.”

Thomas was confused about this ‘Charles’ character, so he just said the first thing that came in his mind.

“Well, Charles sounds like a real dick.” This got a giggle out of Alexander, a small, but real one.

Thomas walked over to his own bed and got an idea. He scooped up his computer and crossed the room, back to Alexander’s bed.

“Can I sit next to you?” Jefferson asked Alex in a soft voice. Alex nodded his head, sat up, and moved over a bit to give Jefferson some space to sit. Jefferson plopped down on Hamilton’s bed, sitting on top of the covers.

“What kinda stuff do you like to watch? You seem like a horror and science fiction documentary kinda guy if I’ve ever seen one.” Jefferson was practically on the dot with that assumption. Alex loved creepy shows, most of them in the form of documentaries like the X-Files and Making A Murder. He decided he didn’t want anything real or scary at the moment, so Thomas started playing a random episode of parks and rec. They were watching the show peacefully until a crack of lightning illuminated the room in a ghostly white, and then a shocking boom of thunder trailing it afterwards.

Alex jumped and a sob escaped his lips, letting more tears flow. Thomas moved closer to Alexander until Alexander was almost sitting on his lap. Thomas leaned over the side of Alex’s bed and picked up a green fleece blanket from off the floor, and wrapped it around Alexander and himself. Alexander leaned into Thomas, probably aiming for the shoulder, but the height difference had other plans so he ended up leaning on the side of Thomas’ chest. Alexander thought that Jefferson was going to push him off, but instead Jefferson leaned into Hamilton right back and wrapped an arm around his middle. They sat like this for a good thirty minutes, and Thomas was wondering if Alexander was getting sleepy of if he was already asleep. His unspoken question was answered.

Prediction: Before Viktor went to get coffee/tea That Morning, he actually left a note! obviously he thinks that Yuuri just ignored it but really he didn't have his glasses lol

Interesting prediction! You’ll just have to wait and see…

anonymous asked:

Can you give me some Valdangelo headcanons? I'm feeling pretty miserable and gross today, and those two goof balls make me happy

yeah im havin a Real Bad Day 2 anon so i got ur back. valdangelo also fills me with joy so this is self indulgent as hell, lets contemplate on a good ol’ domestic as hell relationship for these two

  • Their apartment is modest but comfortable. They live in brooklyn, 1 hour from camp and a good subway ride from the Jacksons. 2 bedrooms, tho they both sleep in Nico’s room technically because Leo’s room is full of half finished projects and a few spare skeletons that Nico couldnt fit in his closet. Leo’s room is basically storage. They have a cactus, its doing OKAY at the moment but its life is tenuous at best. They have a small kitchen, and a smaller bathroom, which is usually full of scattered bandaids and medical supplies, when someone comes home injured or something explodes. They could probably afford somewhere better, what with Nico’s father and all, but theyre happy in the neighborhood, and their place is just big enough for them
  • Hades pays a majority of their bills, a gift to his son as a thanks for “not being anything like his older brother, you know the one that killed a whole bunch of people and also tried to take over europe”. Thanks to that, they hardly ever have to worry about money, unless a monster breaks down the door or one of Leo’s inventions puts a whole in the ceiling again. which, to be fair, happens pretty often.
  • Neither of them care much about cleaning, but their appartment is surprisingly tidy most of the time. This is thanks to Piper and Hazel, who would literally kill them both if they chose to live in squaler as they are so inclined. of course, their appartment isnt perfect, a couple bones and machine parts laying around, their bookshelf is a mess of ancient tomes and how-to and diy books. but its Good Enough, its home and its perfect
  • Theyre actually great friends with their neighbor, a very old hispanic woman and her cats, thanks to Leo who just loves to chat up everyone. Her name is Rosa and she keeps asking when theyre going to get married and if they want her to cook for them
  • Leo does a majority of the cooking, because Nico is lazy and will live off fast food if the option presents itself. Leo actually isnt a huge fan of fast food, its pretty much all he ate when he was on the road, and he likes a good home cooked meal because it reminds him of simpler times with his mom. Nico helps in the kitchen of course, and by ‘helps’ i mean he sits on the counter and complains about how long it takes to make good rice.
  • Neither Nico nor Leo got a proper education, what with being runaways and all. Nico doesn’t care much, he doesnt feel like he needs it, but Leo is more than a little self conscious about sounding stupid when he talks to his friends, most of whom went to school or were educated in some way. They spend a lot of time reading and studying together, Leo wants them to go to college in new rome together some day, after they get GEDs
  • They could never keep a normal pet because neither of them are “good with organics”, so instead they have a resurrected dog that Nico just brought home one day without asking. Leo was really creeped out at first, because well, you can see its ribs and also all the rest of its bones. But 3 months later “Muerto” is a member of the family and neither of them could imagine life without the lil scamp. also sometimes he loses body parts in the apartment and it becomes a fun old game of “where the fuck is the dog’s leg”
  • neither of them ever fucking sleep, so odds are if certain friends show up injured at their door at 4am, yeah theyre up and ready to help fight whatever monster is down the block at the moment.
  • Nico still has to disappear for days at a time, which at first really terrified Leo. But now he always leaves notes explaining on the fridge. These notes range from actually telling Leo why he left and what he’s doing to vauge doodles of a large monster he probably intends to fight, or some weird artifact his father sent him to retrieve.
  • They spend a lot of time away from home, Nico takes them on trips all over, because Leo has always wanted to see the world and Nico just likes seeing him smile. they only go away for a few days at a time tho, because even tho Muerto doesnt need to eat, the cactus Leo is desperately trying to keep alive in their living room will inevitably die if theyre gone for longer then about a week.
Notes

Just a little Doctor x Rose fic I hammered out this morning…the idea popped in my head and I had to get it out. :) I wrote it in a bit of a rush, so sorry…it’s not very polished.

Nine x Rose, Ten x Rose, Twelve X Rose - MultiEra

Rated G - 1526 words - read it on ao3!

One of the things that the Doctor noticed shortly after he brought her on board was that Rose wrote a lot.

It wasn’t anything substantial, really, she certainly wasn’t composing sonnets or writing a novel. They were mostly reminders to herself, little lists or little notes quickly jotted down on whatever paper she could find to help her remember things she may forget. But the Doctor was somewhat less than pleased the first time he found a note taped to the Tardis’ refrigerator a couple of weeks after he took her on board, reminding them to pick up milk when they stopped off on Earth.

Imagine Minako making Artemis do increasingly ridiculous stuff on camera trying to turn him into a meme.

I know somewhere in the backup we were talking about Minako and memes at one point. This may be a repeat, but I think it’s a good one all the same.

I can totally see Minako becoming OBSESSED with the idea of starting or, better yet, becoming a meme. She’s so certain that she can harness this, that she can become Internets Famous, and that is her ticket to the celebrity she’s always craved.

And she CAN’T. Because you can’t manufacture this shit, nobody can predict it, not even Minako. (Though putting it in those words, imagine her going to Rei, pleading with her to do a fire reading, begging for some insight, and Rei’s face when she finds out all Minako wants is a jump on the next big meme.) Minako keeps rotating around accounts on different social media networks; she knows how to create identities and she’s very careful to seem like someone new every time so she doesn’t appear desperate.

BUT SHE IS SHE IS SO DESPERATE WHY WON’T THIS HAPPEN

Meanwhile, Usagi posts a silly picture of Mamoru, and that shit catches and takes off and within 24 hours Mamoru’s face is every fucking where. And a few days later they’re all out and Mamoru’s getting recognized all over the place and he’s starting to get invited on talk shows and Minako is smiling but it’s through clenched teeth AND INSIDE SHE IS SCREAMING AND MAY NEVER STOP

Dean, your eldest brother, sauntered in with a smirk on his face. It was clear he was trying to hide it but you and Sam saw straight through it.

“Hey.” You smiled, suppressing a giggle, Sam nudged you in attempt to do the same.

“Hi.” Dean managed before breaking out into a grin.

“Someone’s happy.” Sam pointed out, smirking.

“I’m aloud to be.” Dean snapped.

“So uh, what did Cas want?” You encourage.

You and Sam had left a note “from Cas” explaining how he wanted to meet Dean somewhere to talk and you’d prayed to Cas earlier to let him know vice versa. 

“It’s weird actually,” Dean frowned in thought “He said he never left a note and that I wanted to meet him.” Dean’s face dropped in realisation.

“Did you- You and Sam- Did you- Set us up?” Dean stuttered, finally understanding.

No, why on Earth would we do such a thing?” You joke as Sam was too busy laughing to answer. 

“Shut up.” Dean flushed red.

“So you’re finally an item?” Sam asked, just to make sure.

“Yes okay?! YES.” Dean’s face was bright red and he shied away from both your gazes.

You highfived Sam and got up to hug Dean. “Someone had to do it,”You smirked “I’m happy for you.”

INTP-ISTJ They’re Not /Completely/ Broken Yet

ISTJ: Have you found a new pair of headphones yet?

INTP: Huh?

ISTJ: You told me you were going to pick out a new pair to replace the ones you’re using now.

ISTJ: You told me that months ago.

INTP: Oh, that’s right.

INTP: Well. No, I haven’t, but–

ISTJ: Let me see the brand you have.

ISTJ: *Takes INTP’s headphones*

ISTJ: Okay. I’m going to order you some new ones.

INTP: Why?

ISTJ: Because the ones you’re using have been completely destroyed and are a mangled mess.

ISTJ: And because if I don’t do it, you’re going to have those awful things for the rest of your life.

ISTJ: It’s getting ridiculous, INTP. You need a new pair.

INTP: They still work, though.

ISTJ: They are a mess and need to be replaced.

INTP: But they sound fine!

Some tips about how to get good grades without going crazy !

I wrote this article for a blog I had a few month ago. I figured it fits here, on my studyblr, so here it is :) !!  I hope it helps ! 


Dealing with school, social life and sleep (and also eventually finding some time just for you) is not always easy - it’s the least we can say. I also, sometimes, struggle with it. However, now that I finished high school a few years ago, I think I got the trick on some stuff. Until today, I never failed an exam, but I did got better and worse grades, and better and worse state of mind depending on how I dealt with my time and classes.  I thus decided to share my experience with you. Keep in mind that these are based on my life, my classes and that what works to me, may not be good for you. For the record, I’m in law school. I also have to mention I’m dealing with terrible attention issues, so maybe these tips are not relevant for people with a high attention-ratio.

Nb : our school system, in Belgium, is not at all the same than in the US. I have read a few “school advice” posts from american and english bloggers, and I figured these advices could nonetheless be useful ;-) )

1. Attending all the classes is not mandatory

I know almost everyone will tell you the opposite, but I disagree. Of course, if you have a good auditive memory, you should go to class. For the others, when you go to class but your mind is not there, or when the teacher just read the textbook…what is your presence in the classroom good for ? You would make a best use of your time working at your desk/the library, or drinking coffee (or something else) with your friends.

I say that out of experience : since have a low attention ratio, and it happens a lot that I drive all the way to the university for nothing, because I don’t pay attention at all to what the teacher says. It often happens that after 2 - 3 times, I notice that it will always be that way for one class, and that I actually have notes for this class, and then I decide simply not to go.

The tricky thing is that if you do that, you cannot let yourself forget this class actually exists. I always find a special time in my schedule to work on that specific class, and the thing is : since I know I’m not going there, I actually work better (because of the “stress”), and the only time I ended up with a bad grade for the classes I decided to miss was before I came up with that technique ;-P

2. Taking free-time to relax and have fun is mandatory

I know sometimes it is hard, and you feel guilty when you know you still have 3000 things to do and you decide to do something else instead, or you have “free time” you could spend studying, doing something “more” for a class and you just sit and watch stupid videos instead. Listen to me carefully : you shouldn’t feel guilty.

Classes can really soon become overwhelming. You sit in front of those hundreds of pages and you feel like you would actually need to sleep 2hours per night to get through all of this, so can you really think about doing something else than work-related stuff ?! The answer is yes. When you start seeing nothing else in your life than study-related stuff, it’s when you start hating school, feeling bad, and when you start doing always more, but not better. You should take free time, because…

1) it’s good for you, your health and your mind
2) you only have one life
3) you will come back to your classes with a fresh look at them
4) having less time will push you to make better decisions about how you study
5) if you don’t, things will always look worse, and you’ll have the feeling no matter what you give up, it’s never enough. The thing is : it’s already too much. You’re giving up on yourself.

For instance, I put two stops every single day. First, I never work after 9PM, even if I’m only half-way to the end of what I should have done (well, of course, if I only have half a page left, I’ll go on until 21h10 ;-)). The second stop is in the afternoon. Sometimes, I only have class on the morning, and I have nothing planned in the afternoon and a thousand things to achieve. Well, I always take a break at 3PM, until most of the time 4PM : I make myself a coffee and watch a tv-show or talk with a friend or do something else, totally unrelated with school. You can also go and meet with someone or do some shopping, but the thing is : I live in a little village with just one supermarket and almost only old people ;-) I go to school by car every day. So, it’s unfortunately not an option for me :-(. Sometimes, I take a whole day off - or a night off - and sometimes I work a lot for school, but I ALWAYS stick to the 9PM & 3PM rule.

3. Don’t try to get as comprehensive notes as you can. Try to get useful ones.

Trust me on this one : you definitely don’t want to end up with 300 pages long notes when there are 3 days left before the super big huge test you absolutely have to pass. Most certainly, you spent hours and hours of your time trying to make them as amazing as they can be : you do have all the dates, “important” details, the exact name of the person the teacher mentioned when he gave the example. Great. Maybe you could sell them as a textbook for people who will take this class next year (I actually did that). But the thing is : all the really important stuff is drawn in these pages, and you’ll have to get through them in 3 freaking days. It is a bad idea.

The thing is : don’t spend so much time trying to make outstanding notes, because you’ll end up using all your time making them and there will be no left to actually work the material. Instead of making comprehensive notes, make some which will actually help you get that good grade : small notes, with every important thing and some stuff to help you understand what was going on. Some details can be important, but not every tiny little things are. It is quite hard at the beginning, but ask yourself : if I had to summarize and explain this to a friend, would I talk about this ? If the answer is no, just don’t put it in your notes.

4. The mantra is : don’t learn the material by heart. Understand it.

This goes hand in hand with my previous advice. I personally am perfectly unable to learn stuff by heart, and sometimes it can become a real problem (when you have conditions to learn or stuff like that). It also kinda became something good as I was forced to learn another strategy pretty soon in my schooling, and I have seen that this is what works better in college. Please just don’t go through those pages without trying to understand what things you learn imply.

Always try to put it in a real-life example, to rewrite what you learn in your own words, to explain it to someone else and to ask yourself questions about what those things really mean (and if you don’t have the answer, ask to someone else). If there are exercises, try to do them or at least to see if you understand how it goes (and not just the day before the exam. Do that instead of looking for the date of birth of the woman from the example the teacher gave you in class ;-) - cf the previous advice). The thing is, once you understand the material, it is much easier to “study”. It goes faster. So if you think you’re losing time by doing this, you’re wrong. Thankfully, I was here to tell you that  ! ;-)

5. Study the table of content of the course

Maybe not the one the teacher gave you, but another one you made yourself. Making a table of content is actually something that really helps me (I know if I remember what was going on under this entry or if I have to check it up), and studying it is the best advice I could give you : knowing which things were in which chapter is super important, but it goes beyond that…

1) It helps you when the teacher asks to compare two things
2) You can see brighter the differences between elements that can be easily mixed up
3) It is a big summarize of the course, so if you put enough sub-elements in the table of contents, it’s useful for a last-minute revision
4) The teachers like that you have a global vision of the entire course. Even if you studied “less” some of the chapters, you will always have something to say, so it won’t look like you didn’t give a crap about their class.
5) It actually already happened to me that a teacher asked a question to which the answer was actually a piece of the table of contents of his book…

6. Never ever compare yourself to others

It’s not because they work every single day and re-read the class that you also have to. It’s not because they have 300pages and you 250pages that your notes are worth. And it’s not because they have a rule of “never skipping a class” or “always reading the class ahead” that you also have to. It might be an inspiration - and then it’s ok. But you shouldn’t try to do exactly what others do without questioning yourself : “does it actually works for me ?” “am I not losing my time doing it ?”. We are all different. Don’t listen to a person saying their way of working is better than yours, because it’s bullshit. Do it your own way, you’ll make mistakes and you’ll learn from them.

Also, don’t compare your results to the ones other have had. Their life is not yours, and both your priorities are not the same. Maybe they just knew better the answer to that one question, or maybe they are really passionate, or they just spend their whole life studying. And if you are the one with better grades, please don’t be a show off.  You’re not better than others just because of that. You can offer your help, but don’t make them feel bad or stupid.

Of course, all the other tips you can find on the internet are good (make a study schedule, keep track with to do lists, study on a regular basis, keep your workspace neat - this one is actually one I really struggle with ;-) - take a look at the syllabus, etc etc.  I tried to give you advices I don’t think I see enough on the net, based on my reality rather than on some ideal situation in which your days are 48hours long :-P !  I might, someday, make a post about how I schedule my time because it’s something I like to talk about, and maybe another one about how I work on a daily basis. If you’re interested in reading about it, let me know, I’d be glad to help ! :-)

Things Odi's Note To Mattie Might Contain Apart From a Suicide Note

For the Humans fan who’s in denial, and proud.

1. The information about George/Elster she wanted from him, which he withheld for her safety - a course of action he now knows is futile, since she’s gone after Leo regardless

2. A confession that he did try to erase his own consciousness, but failed. He wrote it down because he thinks he might be afraid to tell her when she gets back, in case she’s angry, but he knows he has to tell her.

3. A goodbye, because he thinks his presence is affecting Sophie negatively. (He’s gonna go join Max and Flash’s commune instead.)

4. Instructions on how to make really good apricot jam.

5. The words and notation for a ballad he’s written for her (we all saw that BTS shot Lucy tweeted).

6. Nothing. It’s just a folded over piece of paper and he was practicing writing her name on the front, because he likes the way it looks and he needs practice.

7. It’s actually a note Laura left in Mattie’s old room ages ago, which Odi found when he unpacked a box she’d forgotten about from the move.

8. He’s written her a list of paint colours he thinks would work better than the ones she’s been trying out on her wall.

9. A treasure map, only X marks the spot where Fred is hiding.

10. A fun limerick.

11. A diagram of how she might fix his bad arm.

12. Descriptions of sensations or emotions he doesn’t know the names of, and what caused them, so she can help identify how he’s been feeling.

13. A rec list of h/c fic (she could do with the research)
