they are seriously the best band ever

High School In Review (so far)+ Some Tips!!!

Hello everyone! I’m Niva and I am a student of the High School class of 2019.

Now I’ve been in high school for 2 years now, so I think that can give some pretty solid advice to ya little upcoming freshman and any person who is still struggling in high school. So buckle up ya seat belts and put on some shades, cause we’re about to take a LONG ride

I know there are tons of freshman advice videos and posts out here on tumblr dot com, so I’m gonna try and make mine unique

*Note: My HS experience is unique; your may not need any of these tips, so who knows. Also, this post contains profanity. I don’t know if y’all care, it just seems that the studyblr community are all these sweet angels who attend church every Sunday and read the Bible in their spare time.

~=+=~FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE YEAR~=+=~

my freshman overview: Look, this year was hardest compared to my sophomore year. One class literally ruined my life, my dudes. {humble brag} Throughout my entire life from PreK to 8th Grade, I had gotten straight A’s on all my report cards. My freshman year, I decided to take AP World History and BOY did it crush me. I made a C in the class first semester and a B in the second semester. Now, it was not the teacher at fault. In fact, I LOVED the teacher. I just was not interested in that class at all and the work matched with me being in Marching Band nearly sent me to my death bed. I’m not trying to scare you, I’m just being 100% legit. This is also a PSA to all freshman offered to take APWH: This is one of the harder AP courses, and I wish one of my teachers had told me this before I decided to take the class (they probably did and I ignored them). This also was my first year in marching band and I’m telling you right now, if you’re wondering whether or not you should do marching band, do it. Even if you just do it for one year, it’s fuckin worth it mate. 

my sophomore overview: This year was SIGNIFICANTLY easier. During my freshman year, the way the schedule was set up was an A/B schedule; your schedule would alternate. On A days, you’d have these 4 classes and on B day, another 4. My sophomore year, they changed that and it was a bit easier for me. Not that I didn’t like the A/B schedule (I loved it), it was just a lot easier to manage classes. I only had one AP class this year, because I couldn’t take AP Lang because of schedule conflicts. ANTYWAYS, AP Gov is one of the easiest classes I took. My teacher was extremely chill and put a curve on every test and quiz, so that’s mainly why I didn’t fail. Marching band was much easier to handle since I already had experience. This was also the year I quit TSA (technology student association) and VEX Robotics, due to scheduling conflicts with band. And, to be quite honest, neither of the clubs were fun lmao. Literature class was annoying, because I got stuck in a class that DIDNT WANNA DO ANYTHING. They didn’t wanna read along, read at all, do projects, breathe, etc. (if you need tips on how to handle a trash class, just ask and I might make a post on that lol). Chemistry was purgatory, not hell, just purgatory. It was hard but not too hard that I didn’t pass. Math has never been hard for me so nothing really changed with that class. This year I brought back my streak of All A’s, so this school year was the best of the two in my eyes.

~=+=~The TIPS~=+=~

1. Normally, freshman don’t take AP classes, but if you are, be prepared. Depending on the class subject, you’re gonna have to do a hell of a lot more than just read the chapters once and do one page of notes. Try to always be ahead of the class and start some sort of study group. 

2. You’re best friend does not need to be your project partner all of the time. Seriously. If you have friends like mine, you will sit on your phone looking at memes on twitter for a long ass time before you ever start your project. Try doing a solo project every once in a while.

3. Don’t randomly join clubs. I was offered to join BETA Club and I didn’t wanna do it, so I didn’t. Don’t do clubs cause it looks nice cause 90% of the time, that one club won’t affect anything.

4. Save money. If you’re in marching band, dear god, save your money. School might as well be charging you to breathe. Everything cost SO MUCH MONEY. If you need to, set up a secret money jar so your parents don’t hijack your money.

5. Make new friends. Unlike most people apparently, I didn’t lose any friends. I do talk to certain people less because of class schedules, but we’re still friends. There is a small ass chance you’re gonna get caught in a class full of upperclassmen and no friends, and I had that situation. It’s not fun. Eventually, you’ll make a friend in that class, so don’t panic. But, anyways, new school, why not make new friends?

6. Don’t? Switch? Lunch? Tables? Okay, I don’t mean that someone’s gonna like sucker punch you out of your seat like in the movies. I mean like if we’re 5 months into the school year, don’t just randomly change your table, because …just don’t do it.

7. Don’t be that person who purposely gets on the teacher’s nerves to make class harder.

8. If you hate one of your teachers, suck it up buttercup. You have a choice of passing or failing, don’t let a teacher ruin an A in class for you.

9. Try and be on the other side of drama. It’s much more fun to watch drama go down, that to actually be involved in it.

10. Be early (if you can). I ride the bus, so I have no choice. But, there is legit no reasons for you to be walking into the class 10 minutes late, because you thought you could sleep an extra 5 mins.

11. I know your literature class is getting boring. This is probably your 7th consecutive year of learning the difference between a simile and a metaphor. I don’t know why they continue to reteach that stuff, but they do. All I can say is utilize what their teaching in some way, so that you don’t feel like the class is completely useless.

12. We all have that one class that you just do nothing in. Take advantage of that and get work done. I don’t have a “study hall” class so, any time you have to do work, use it.

13. Go to at least some of the school events. You can get relatively free food. 

14. Look, I could not care less if you skip school. But, don’t do it often and if you can, don’t do it ever. 

15. If you’re gonna eat in class, don’t eat something obvious like Lays Chips or a whole orange

16. Make friends with your teacher. Don’t be like creepy, but like, don’t have a bad relationship with your teacher.

17. Sophomore year, start thinking about college. You may think it’s too early, but it’s not. At least have an idea of what you want to major in.

18. If you can, get your permit as soon as you turn 15. Please don’t be like me. I still cannot drive and getting from Point A to Point B is harder than the VESPR Theory.

19. Disrespectful classmates are just an opportunity for you to get special privileges in class. If you’re class is disruptive and you’re just a sweet little angel, the teacher will most likely be more lenient with you. My teacher literally gave me a 100 on a project I turned in a day late (supposed to be 5 points off) because literally me and this other girl were the only ones who turned the project in.

20. Do your homework the day you get it. I don’t give a damn if it’s due in two days or two months, do it right then and right there.

21. In your language class, please try. Nobody likes the kid who doesn’t participate. If the teacher asks,  ¿Como estas?, you better fuckin say ¿Bien, y tu? back.

22. If you’re in a situation like mine, you’re gonna have a class you didn’t sign up for, yet somehow you got it. Just deal with it. If you can’t change your schedule, that’s all you can do. Just do the assignments and hope you pass.

23. Okay, most schools don’t have a “popular” group. But all schools definitely have the Prep group. You know, those kids. If you’re not one of them, just ignore them. If you are one of them, stop being so goddang stuck up and realise that you have an annoying voice. If you are not sure if you are a prep, you most likely are not.

24. My school doesn’t use lockers purely based on the fact that it would take too long for kids to get to them and back to class since my school is so big. So, if you also do not have lockers, make sure your bookbag can handle one full school year. I cannot stress this enough. You don’t wanna walk around school with a 15lb bookbag and only one functional strap.

25. Eat the school food. It’s honestly not as bad as the internet makes it. Like…eat ya pizza and enjoy it.

26. If your single and you want a relationship, please do not get a crush on random people like me. Someone would let me borrow a pencil and I would fantasize about a wedding for the next 2 days. I know it’s hard being lonely, but being in a relationship won’t get you a college scholarship.

27. Don’t drink a lot during school. There’s gonna be a teacher with a restriction on the bathroom because for some reason, they think bladders have a specific schedule to follow.

28. Don’t be that freshman that dates every senior in sight. If you have a relationship with a senior and it lasts, great. I’ve seen it happen, but 90% of the time it does not. 

29. Likewise, if you have a friend that’s running you up the wall with their problems, specifically relationship problems. Find a way to distance yourself from them, or even better, get them help from someone else.

30. If you have Type 4 hair (or type 3, it depends), you gotta do your hair at least 3 days in advance, especially if your hair is short. I don’t know a single person with kinky hair who can wake up and just simply throw their hair up.

31. Look, man. Just look here. Look at me in my eyes and listen. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, IF YOU ARE GONNA HAVE SEX USE A CONDOM! USE A CONDOM OR DONT HAVE SEX AT ALL. I’m not speaking from personal experience, but I many of girls have gotten pregnant at my school

32. If you’re gonna do drugs, don’t. Don’t be stupid. Especially if you’re in a school club or sport. You are subject to random drug tests at all times. 

33. Try not to let people affect the way you dress. Wear what you want.

34. Something about you is gonna change. Your personality, your look, your aesthetic. Whatever changes, don’t be stuck up. Nobody likes stuck up people; not even stuck up people like stuck up people.

35. You know those posts that are like “Grades don’t determine intelligence?” Yeah, well they don’t determine your intelligence, but they can determine where you get into college (if you wanna go) and how you’re seen and perceived by teachers. At least, try to pass.

36. If you can, take the ACT or SAT or whatever standardized test you have for your schools. I had an opportunity to take the SAT in 4th, 7th, and 8th grade for $35…and I didn’t take it once. I heavily regret it. Mainly I didn’t take it, because, at the time, it was hard for my mother to pay for it when we had much bigger problems, but like, if you have the opportunity and the funds to take those tests, take them.

37. Don’t rely on quality points. In my school (they’ve gotten rid of this now though), if you’re in an AP class you got 10 extra points and if you were in an Honors/PreAP class, you got 5 points. Colleges look at your grades without the points. The only purpose for these quality points is so that kids in CP classes don’t get valedictorian or some shit idk

38. If you’re in America, you’re gonna have somebody walking around school in a Trump shirt. By all means, beat their ass, but know the consequences. Also, if you’re gonna talk about politics with somebody, please know at least the bare minimum. At least know what the Hillary email scandal is before you try and defend her. Same goes for my friends across the pond. You see someone supporting Theresa May, beat their ass, know the consequences, and learn politics.

39. Actually? Check? Your? Grades? I know so many people who just don’t know what they’re grades are. Know you’re grades so you always know where you stand.

40. I wanna say class rank does not matter, but if you’re anything like me, you’re gonna obsess over it for a while. I know you wanna be in the Top 5, but if you’re no where near it, you’re gonna have to work EXTREMELY HARDER THAN NORMAL. Try not to make a huge deal out of it, unless you’re aiming for Valedictorian.

41. Moisturize ya self. Don’t nobody like ashy knees and elbows. Invest in some lotion.

42. Listen. We all hate dress code. But just follow it. You can’t do anything about it. Just wait til the weekend to wear your spaghetti strap shirt and ripped jeans. And if you wear leggings and you have a wide hip and butt area, you are definitely going to be called out. If you’re not sure if you’re breaking dress code with what your wearing, bring an extra shirt and jeans just in case.

43. Go the fuck to sleep. Don’t be up at ass o’clock in the morning doing who-knows-what on the internet. I know from experience. You may think you can survive 8 hours of school with 2 hours of sleep, but as the day goes on, you’re not gonna want do anything at all, but sleep. But hey, if 2 hours of sleep works for, go ahead. It’s not healthy but I can’t regulate your life.

44. If you walk in the wrong class, everyone will forget about it after the a good 2 days. Literally nobody cared that much. Just walk out and forget about it.

45. If you have a phone, get your friends numbers/contacts/emails. You’re gonna need them for homework sooner or later.

46. To all those uber religious people out there, drop the clean act. If you hear somebody say “fuck”, get over it. I don’t know how else to say it. Teachers cannot stop somebody from cursing completely. People are gonna have sex, people are gonna cuss, people are gonna be inappropriate, and all you can do is focus on yourself.

47. Wear deodorant. You will be surprised at the amount of people who don’t. 

48. Studyblr is fun. Studyblr is nice. That being said, studyblr is not the end of the world. If you don’t have a bullet journal, just use the calendar in your phone or have an online bujo. Don’t let studyblr take up 90% of your study time, because scrolling through the studyblr tag is not studying.

49. Don’t be that kid that walks around with fucking surround sound speakers on their back. Wtf, like invest in some headphones my guy.

50. Never buy a 1 inch binder. Always 2 inch and above, unless you know for sure you only need a 1 inch.

51. You are gonna have a set of people you absolutely hate that for some reason, you cannot get away from them. The best you can do is ignore them.

52. If you’re required to take a Fitness class and you are a festively plump child or an unhealthy/unfit person such as myself, you are going to be embarrassed at some point. Look. I cannot give you advice that’s gonna raise your self-esteem, but I can tell you that if you don’t pay attention to anyone else, it’s much easier to get through that class. The fitness gram pacer test doesn’t last forever. Likewise, don’t treat fitness class like the fucking Olympics. The coach asked for 10 pushups not 100.

53. Extra Credit is your friend. Even if you have a 100 in a class, extra credit doesn’t hurt.

54. Do not walk slow in the hallway, please. I like getting to class on time. If you plan on having a conversation in the hallway, only do it if you walk and talk at a reasonable speed.

55. If you ride the bus, get up at least 45 minutes before the bus gets there. I don’t have a big morning routine, so half of the time in the morning, I just scroll through twitter. Wake up early enough to get everything done.

56. C’s get degrees, my friend, but C’s don’t get scholarships.

57. If you wear AXE Body Spray or any perfume/cologne, I want you to know that your smell occupies the entirety of the hallway you’re on. Please, use only a small amount of fragrance, because not only do they most likely stink, some kids have asthma and some kids are allergic to fragrances. Just refrain from wearing strange smelling spays.

58. If you’re a theatre kid or sport kid, don’t be completely set on becoming a professional singer/actor/athlete. Have a Plan B. The last thing counselors wanna hear when they ask you what you want to be when you grow up, is a NBA Player.

59. To all my shy people out there, that speech you have to give doesn’t last forever. In fact, it may only last 3 minutes. In my literature class, we were required to recite lines from Romeo and Juliet, for some odd reason, and I made such a big deal out of something that barely affected my grades.

60. For this last and FINAL tip of this post, don’t give up. I didn’t wanna be generic, but here the fuck! I! am!!! When I took AP World History, part of the reason I ‘failed’ was because I just stopped trying. I would make low C’s on the test and just think, “Well I didn’t pass, might as well just give up.” Well, no shit you didn’t read the chapter. If you’re trying all you’ve got and you’re just not making it, talk to the teacher. That’s one thing I regret from my freshman year. I just gave up. I didn’t try and get help because I felt that getting help meant that I was stupid. It doesn’t. It just means you’re smarter for trying to get a good grade.

WELL THAT’S ALL FOLKS! Sorry if my cursing doesn’t fit your aesthetic, too bad. I can probably think of 40 more tips to make this 100, but I didn’t want this post to be extremely long (lol good job on that). Anyways, if you ever want any help, feel free to message me, but I’m not that good at text conversations or conversations in general so I’m your last resort.

TO THE UPCOMING FRESHMAN: Have a great first year of high school! You’re about to enter a new life where the teachers are more serious and, yes, coloring still somehow counts as a grade.

TO THE UPCOMING SOPHOMORES: I know. You’ve only been here one year and your tired. Have hope. You’re one year closer to that diploma.

anonymous asked:

what was the last fic you read and love it? i need some recs

sauce:  

Jumping before the Gunshot has Gone Off by tigerlily_sunshine (I started reading this when the first chapter was posted then lost touch with it and now recently I jumped back into it and it was glorious as a writer I am super jealous of the smut writing like HOW)

Camp Yellow Wood by onceuponatime (it’s so so good like I’ve read this five times and it only ever gets better I live for Camp Rock esque camp AUs)

like a dog inspires a rabbit by notactuallybatman (I just…. I just…. it’s criminal how little people know about this fic it is so good and UGH also college AUs hell yeah) 

everthing that was ever written by paperstorm but you already know that 

no sauce: 

Post-It Note Romance by fuzzytomato (this is Merlin/Arthur from BBC’s Merlin and it’s the cutest secret admirer fic you could ever imagine I’m–)

Three Months by virginiasoil (this is Clarke/Bellamy from The 100, a good old roomies to lovers fic yet so much more and I adore this fic)

this city bleeds its aching heart by Renne (this is Steve/Bucky from the Marvel Cinemativ Universe and BOY do I love myself some good “we have to pretend to be married for the mission” trope especially when it is as well done as this) 

step out into the sun by plutos (this is Finn/Poe from Star Wars and it’s the best thing ever I laughed so much and cried so much and the whole “oops people think we got married so I guess we have to go along with it” trope is just brilliant also I just noticed there is a theme going on here whoops) 

The dark’s not taking prisoners tonight by DisasterSoundtrack (I rec this to anyone who asks me for the best fics I’ve read individually and this is by far one of them I’ve read this years ago for the first time and I still think about it often seriously it’s so good also includes like every band dude pairing ever and it’s just…. life-changing)

My musically brilliant partner that you know as Ian B on this blog has had this joke kicking around in his head since the 90s: What if you took Depeche Mode songs and did them in the style of The Ramones? It blends our punk and goth sensibilities in the best way possible.

Portland takes our Halloween cover band seriously and I think this is the most brilliant mashup band ever! Be on the lookout for Halloween show dates! Until then, check out this basement demo to get an idea of how it sounds. There are 4 songs recorded but this is just the beginning!

Knowledge I Acquired in Philadelphia and Baltimore

·         The thing that Kaylie (Kali? Kaleigh? Kalie? Kehleh????) plays for Dave Hause and the Mermaid is called a melodica. The more you know.

·         The words that Dave asks you to sing are “I got the autism vaccine blues.” I didn’t figure this out until 20 minutes ago cause I googled it.

·         The Patience call Matt “Matty”

·         They call Evan “Evvy”

·         No one seems to call Frank “Frankie” which honestly is not surprising.

·         Alex’s signature is currently a star inside of a G

·         Evan is TOO FUCKING NICE. I watched him play along with a wasted tech for half an hour and then hang out with fans for another hour and then a half hour more after he said, “I’ve gotta pee so bad, I’m gonna pee my pants.” Like this boy started crossing his legs and getting antsy and STILL wasn’t telling people to STFU and go home like he totally should have. Don’t take advantage of Evan, I’ll fight you.

·         Matt hasn’t been hanging around after shows so much, which is totally fine, just interesting. :)

·         The bald guy with a beard who runs onstage to fix mics and hand off guitars is named Kevin, and he’s very good at his job…and the jobs of other people

·         Kevin, who says he’s a “backline tech,” is not afraid to spill some fucking tea.

·         Frank still doesn’t like getting hugged please don’t just walk up to him and hug him, more on this later.

·         Alex Grippo is literally always ready to give up a pep talk, whether he’s drunk, high, or sober. (Only confirmed drunk or sober but he loves some green so I’m hypothesizing).

·         The big idea of that pep talk might be “Do what you want, but do what you need. It’s a hard balance.”

·         Alex loves talking about his wife

·         Alex advises that one use dental floss for sewing patches if one wishes to be a Real Punk

·         Alex split his pants by the fifth day of tour

·         All the dudes in The Patience are just…growing their hair out. They’ve never had it this long and they don’t know what they’re doing.

·         Evan especially doesn’t know what to do with his hair even though we’ve assured him it looks just fine.

·         Evan has a strip of forever-blonde hair on the front of his head that never changed from his childhood.

·         Frank agrees that Jersey at least looks shittier the further you go north, and that the culture between North and South Jersey is different in that people from South Jersey never wanna leave, and people in North Jersey try to peace the fuck out.

·         Evan’s glasses mysteriously disappear and reappear throughout the set.

·         The lead-in to one of the songs straight up sounds like Pomp and Circumstance, and I don’t think they realize it at all.

·         The wasted guy who bugged Evan all night swears up and down that The Patience is one of the best bands he’s ever worked with, but he also swears he and Evan are best friends even though later Evan was like, “Yeah we go back hours, what the fuck.” So…take that as you will.

·         Alex got called a cheeky bastard once, and he loved it. If we can all find a way to casually insert it into conversation (as a compliment) I wonder if he’ll notice…

·         Frank is a good musician. Like, we all know that already, but watching him improvise and work through new shit in the acoustic session was like eye-opening. He’s seriously good at his job.

Summary: Excerpt from “Hale Pulls the Plug on the Future of Rock,” Rolling Stone, Issue 1203 – Oct. 2014 “Fans and music industry vets alike are left reeling in the wake of bassist Derek Hale’s sudden departure from Smokes for Harris. At a time when the foursome from Beacon Hills, California seems to be on the cusp of rock superstardom after just one double platinum record, Smokes has everything to lose.”

Excerpt from “Smokes for Harris: Gladiator,” SPIN.com – Feb. 2015 “Smokes for Harris gives in a little to the pop punk of yesteryear in their sophomore effort, but rather than pandering to fans of a lost era they elevate the genre in a way that hasn’t been seen in quite some time. Frontman Stiles Stilinski works double duty as singer and primary songwriter and proves that he can handle the task even without former bassist Derek Hale.“

Notes: There are not many fics I can read till 6 am you know? This is one of them. There is something about reading fics till down, being so caught up with the story, with the feels, with the characters that you don’t even care it’s 6 in the morning. (Maybe I shouldn’t have started it at 3 am, but well). This is the best band au I could wish for. This not only a band au, okay. This is story about love and friendship and family and about real life, which can fuck us up sometimes, this is about fighting, about things that are worth to fight for, about caring and about doing something that matters. Seriously, this fic is incredible. It’s so well written, the characterizations are extraordinary. Don’t let me even start on sterek feels, because I will never finish, but Scott and Stiles feels. THE BEST ONES EVER. Seriously though, I think their friendship and troubles they had made me even more emotional than sterek, which would be the first time. And all the other people, Lydia, Allison!, Boyd, Jackson (there was not that much about him, but I loved him anyway), papa Stilinski, mama McCall, Erica, Danny, they were all more than perfect. And the story itself, the plot, the flashback, how the author managed to put them in perfect order, how every little part make sense, how all the parts had their place, how everything worked at the end. Amazing is not even close to describe it. And I loved the humor so much too!

Little warning for you guys, there was some drug issues there and drug abuse, but it was not too much and there were so many other feels it was not bothering me at all, it fitted the story, which is surprising for me to say, because I hate drugs and I didn’t think I could accept this plot in a story that easy.

This is definitely one of the best stories I have ever read. - K.

Sneak Peek: 

“What happened to my band?” Derek sighs.

“You left it.”

“Right, sorry. What happened to your band?”

“That was an answer, not a correction.”

“CJ, shut the fuck up.” You hissed the command to your best friend through clenched teeth. You were standing in the soup aisle of your grocery store, eyeing the merchandise for the best weapon to use against CJ. You always enjoyed grocery shopping with your best friend, but he had a good way of making you miserable when he felt like it.

“What? All I said is that you should’ve let him slide in them cheeks.” CJ dodged your first slap and caught the can of soup that you threw at him, but your third slap connected solidly with his left cheek. A mother walking with her two children glared murderously at the two of you and marched away angrily, leaving behind both brands of Beef and Vegetable soup she had been trying to decide between. You muttered something close to an apology, but the damage was already done and she was gone. CJ just laughed.

PLEASE READ Reposting Guidelines HERE. I do my translations for free and the payment I only expect is PROPER CREDITS

Disclaimers for this interview:

-This interview is probably the longest interview that I’ve translated. This is the first interview of the band in this issue. There is a second interview and a Q&A remaining which will be translated soon. 

-They used a lot of figurative speech in this interview. Expect to have a lot of Translator Notes (T/N) every time. 

-They call their fans, “Audience” so I quote the word “Audience” if they refer to the fans and type the usual one as audience for the people who are not necessarily fans but went to their live performances.

-This is INTERVIEW 1, but I will be posting this in two parts because it is very long.

CS Genre: Future Fic

Spring slowly sizzled into summer—a particularly hot and humid summer in Storybrooke that had Emma grateful that they had indeed decided to stay in the Land Without Magic, a place where air conditioners were a thing.

Ever since the Black Fairy was defeated a few months ago, she and Killian had responded to far more “cat stuck in a tree” or “Leroy double parked in front of Granny’s” calls than “weird, fairy tale villain intent on world domination just destroyed something” calls.

In fact, they’d had no calls about fairy tale villains.  It seemed Storybrooke had finally settled down into a peaceful, sleepy little town, with its requisite cast of eccentric characters.

It had never been the kind of life Emma had imagined she would lead—sheriff in a small town where everyone knows everyone else, married to her true love and so happy she thought she might die from it.  But though it might not be the life she’d expected for herself, it was a life she loved with every fiber in her being.

Even when Regina decided to institute regular town meetings to discuss town business.  (Seriously, they really were turning into Stars Hollow.) It was at one such meeting about a month ago, that the whole big production had been decided on.

abbyyatez  asked:

Do you have tips for keeping your purse/bag organized? Or suggestions for purses that don't seem to immediately turn into bottomless pits? I fluctuate between buying purses with tons of pockets to "organize" then never knowing where I put anything, and buying a purse that's basically one giant pocket and have everything suck to the bottom. I end up running late all the time because I think I've lost something and have to go back inside to look for it when it's actually still in my bag.

My favourite purse for staying organized has a bunch of pockets, but I don’t use it often because it’s really casual. It became my art bag for a while and I’ll probably go back to that at some point.

What I do is I have a bunch of different-textured pencil cases that I keep small things in. One has stuff like Band-Aids and dental floss and lip gloss. One has pencils and charging cords. Another one has plastic Slinkies for stimming. I always put my keys in the little zipper pocket that’s always in every purse. Everything else I carry is bigger, like my wallet or a book or my Kobo or my paper datebook or my stuffed toy guinea pig. My phone is usually in my pocket.

But seriously, the pencil cases were the best thing I ever did to organize my purse. A bazillion pockets never really worked. But these zip closed, and they feel and look different so I can tell which one I’m pulling out when I’m looking for something.

The other thing, which I am still trying to implement, is cleaning out my purse on a weekly basis. I always end up with bits of paper floating around in my purse, and I stick random stuff my kid gives me in it when we’re out and about so I have toys and rocks and pine cones and sticks in there. (I usually carry a big tote for this reason; also, then I can drop in a couple of Pull-Ups, a change pad, and a pack of wipes and not need to haul around the diaper bag everywhere.)

For years I’ve been wanting an MCR tattoo and today was finally the fucking day. Like Seriously I’ve been an MCR fan since I was 7 years old, they have not stopped being my favorite band since. I gave my artist creative freedom with some of my ideas and he came up with something better than I ever would have imagined myself (the best part was he was another huge MCR fan too). Even though Danger Days was my least favorite album, it came out during a really dark time in my life where I needed that more upbeat happy music to give me the strength to keep me going. MCR has saved my life many times and I will never stop appreciating what they did for me and so many other people. This was done by Chris Cook @ Studio Thirteen Tattoo in Orlando 🕷❤️

Tonight’s tour finale at Toyosu PIT was also attended by: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Mihara Yuki and SUPER BEAVER’s Yanagizawa Ryota.

A couple days after I met Richard Speight, who played out buddy Skip Muck, he said, “Babe, have you seen the cuts?” I said, “No.” He said, “Well, do you remember the other day you told me about you and Muck receiving communion up in the woods in Bastogne, and what you said to Muck-that if you died, you would die in a state of grace?” He said to me, “Babe, I never forgot you telling me that. So when we shot that scene with Father Maloney giving communion, I put that in myself. I turned to the character Babe, and said, ‘Well, Heffron, if we die, we’ll die in a state of grace’.” Richard Speight did that on his own. That really affected me. I often think of what I said to Muck lying in bed at night. I think, 'Well, I’m going to Mass tomorrow. I’m going to say a prayer for Muck and the guys’. Because after communion, you think about dying in a state of grace, and I always think of Muck.

Ladies and Genitals! Thank you all so much for the likes and reblogs of my last two stories! I’m so happy people liked them! This fic today was again inspired by conversation with @hannibalssweaters about that stare from dear old Papa II. “It’s like he’s staring right into your soul and then fucking it.” So uh…enjoy!

(Also, if people are looking for a beta reader, @espurrwhat is mine. She’s pretty damn awesome!)

Warnings: Might be slightly dub-con, graphic depiction of…well, an orgasm, there’s a boner in there…this is odd. XD

Seeing your favorite band live is the best feeling while your there and the best memory when it’s over

My blog is slowly going to become illustrations of all my favorite book characters.  But seriously, I want each and ever one of you to read “Whatever: or how Junior year became totally f$@ked” by S.J. Goslee.  The main character Mike is the most lovable, awful stoner, who plays in a crappy garage band, and forgets to shower, and is BISEXUAL.  They even address him as bisexual and his sexuality isn’t erased it’s sooooo good.  And his best friend is his ex-girlfriend and their relationship is perfect.  Honestly, I can’t sing enough praises about this book, it was so dear and I laughed so much while reading it.  Even his rag tag gang of dude bro friends are endearing.  (And heads up, if you like the whole fake rivalry of klance, Mike literally has an entire made up rivalry in his head with a boy he’s pining over)

anonymous asked:

Do you have any CS fic recs you might please share?

Oh man, I’m bad at fic recs, mostly because I start fics but then I don’t have time to actually finish them, so I can really only give recs based on what I’ve read so far.  I also have a bad habit of reccing incomplete fics which I know some people don’t like, but I’ll definitely rec you some favorites that I’ve read (or at least started but not finished) in the past.

Beyond the Horizon by @alexandralyman: When Princess Emma’s ship is captured by the Jolly Roger and Captain Killian Jones, she offers herself as a hostage for ransom if he will let the ship and the other passengers go. With Emma, Killian remembers the honour he once held dear, and Emma catches glimpses of the gentleman Killian had been. Against all odds, the pirate and the princess begin to fall for each other.
Seriously cannot recommend this one enough.  It’s an amazing Captain Duckling fic.  If you haven’t read this one, then what are you doing with your life??  I mean, I remember when exactly I started reading this fic (fourth period, first semester of my senior year of high school).  That’s how good it is.  Do yourself a favor and read it!!

Separate Lives by @lenfaz: Set after 3x20 “Kansas”. After saving the town one more time, Emma decided to return to New York, leaving her past behind. Three years later, she realizes that might be not have been the best decision.
This is a really great fic that I read quite some time ago.  If you’re into canon divergence then I highly recommend it.  It’s got all the slowburn and angst as canon Captain Swan, and it’s just so damn good.  Seriously love this fic.

The Lost Boys by @niniadepapa: He’s the charming, out of control frontman of one of the most successful bands in the world. She’s a hard-working rising actress. Sometimes it’s hard to find out what’s real and what’s make-believe when fame’s in the game.
This one was one of the first CS fanfics I ever read.  A classic CS fake dating AU, and very, very good.  I’m a total sucker for musician!Killian fics too, so if you like that kind of thing, you’ll love this.

Half of My Heart by @caishakalianah: Captain Swan, College AU. Emma and Neal are high school sweethearts headed straight for the fairy-tale books, taking David and Mary Margaret along with them. Killian Jones has enjoyed the group’s three years in college, but as they enter senior year Emma begins complicating his once-simple life. “…that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.”
This fic kills me!!!  OMG, I love it so much.  I love college AUs, and the characterization of all the characters is fantastic (especially Neal, which I know sounds weird, but god does this fic make you want to punch him!!).  Lots of pining and angst in this fic too, and it’s complete, which is a bonus!!  This is a great fic, and totally underrated IMO.  I really think more people should read it.

We Own Tonight by @totheendoftheworldortime: The King and Queen of Arendelle are dead, lost at sea. Princess Emma of Misthaven wishes to attend her friend Elsa’s coronation. Her parents agree on one condition: she accepts a bodyguard for the duration of her stay in the foreign kingdom. Their choice? Lieutenant Killian Jones, of the Royal Navy.
Really, really great Lieutenant Duckling fic!!  I actually recommended this one to my roommate (who is not in fandom) and it’s one of two CS fanfics I’ve ever recommended to her that she’s actually finished.  She’s very picky about her reading material, so I’m not sure if that tells you anything about how great this fic is, but just know it’s amazing and you should read it :)

These are some of my all time favs.  I tried to cover all my bases and recommend mostly complete fics, so if you haven’t read any of these then give them a go!  If you’ve happened to have read them all though, then let me know and I’ll see if I can rec you some more :)
