things I do instead of doing homework

I made a Dumb Mom Move. 

Thing 1 has been reading through all my old Runaways comics, so I told her we’d watch the series together (provided it’s not Daredevil-level violent, which I haven’t seen evidence of). Trouble is, now I’ve got the torrents downloaded, but she goofed off instead of doing her homework this afternoon.

So now she’s doing homework and I’m glaring at the files sitting. right. there. Because I can’t watch without her now that I’ve promised. [groan] 

Come on, kid. [tappy fingers] How long can it take to write a reading reflection, anyway? /rhetorical

Teacher picked on me for being autistic, I got her fired.

When I was in 4th grade, i had a teacher named Mrs. Seeles (Like Seals). She was regarded as one of the kindest teachers in our school, to everyone. Everyone but me. I had quite a few learning disabilities that made much of her class confusing and hard to keep up with, especially with the way she taught. She would go over one thing and then have a test on it the next day to see if we learned it, which i always did bad on. 

Now, I was no means a perfect student. But I did my work without complaining, I did homework like i should. My best friend at the time, Jack, would attest to this, as he liked to copy things off my work because he was a sneaky kid. We sat next to each other so it wasnt very hard to get answers from one another. We were both boys so it got a little excitable sometimes and rowdy (not to mention we like-liked each other)

Mrs. Seeles didnt like our friendship in the least, and would always snap at us, more specifically me because i was seen as an easy target. I would never speak up against it or try to do anything, unlike Jack who would demand that we werent doing anything wrong. So she decided to focus in on me instead.

Whenever I passed in class work or homework, she wouldnt grade it. I would get bad reports home saying how I wasnt doing what I was supposed to be doing. All in all, my parents believed her more over me because they never trusted me to begin with. So Jack and I plotted. 

Being only in 4th grade, it wasnt the best plan, but it worked. I would do my work, then Jack would write the exact same things as I did. We did this for months. I would recieve bad grades while Jack excelled in his. We got the papers back. We stored them away.

Near the halfway part of the semesters, We both brought this up to our parents. We called each other on the home phones and explained what had been going on. How Jack would copy my work and Pass it in just like I did, but I never got the credit. We showed them the papers, which were exactly identical. Mine were marked wrong, Jacks were marked right.

My parents were furious. Because of that teacher their child was failing the 4th grade. They threw a fit over at the school board council, gave them complete hell. Within the week, Mrs. Seeles was packed up and leaving the school.

The new teacher that replaced her was wonderful. I went from failing to As in weeks. 

Fun Fact: I actually stopped doing a lot of my homework because of Mrs. Seeles because why do it if it wont be graded? That problem developed heavily into my mind and its been a problem ever since. hope your happy. Graduating from High School this year, going into Theatrical Arts College.

Why Ravenclaws don't win Quidditch games

BEFORE THE GAME:
Captain: “Okay, guys, don’t forget to come to the tower after class to discuss strategies”

Team: *is magnetically attracted to the library instead where the last thing on their minds is Quidditch*

DURING PRACTICE:
*take a hundred breaks because they’re tired*

*secretly do their homework under the stands because they know they won’t make time to do it later*

*get distracted by talking to each other about literally anything else*

*collect samples to test the soil acidity*

DURING THE GAME:
“Oh my god, you guys! I just figured out the answer to that riddle we couldn’t solve in Novemb–”
*gets hit in the face by a bludger*

AFTER THE GAME:
“Oh, well, we tried.”

Hello, it’s #optomstudies here again with another Sunday Study Tip on catching up when you’ve fallen behind!


A masterful skill that not even the best studyblrs may have tackled. A lot of advice in the studyblr community regarding this seems a little airy-fairy (I almost question if they remember what they themselves went through), so hopefully my post will shine a different light on it (or so I hope anyway!)


1. Work out what’s essential and what isn’t. You’ve basically wasted time right to get to this point right? With limited time left, use an Eisenhower matrix of Important vs. Urgent to determine what you need to do left. 

  • Important and Urgent - any and all due assessment tasks
  • Important but Not Urgent - studying lectures for exams, compulsory readings
  • Not Important but Urgent - additional homework tasks that need to be handed in but aren’t worth much, like logbooks
  • Not Important and Not Urgent - additional readings (although it’d be great if you did this, sorry, you’re out of time)

Then cross out everything that you can afford to not do. Ironically, I find that when I use the Eisenhower matrix when I am not strapped for time, studying (in the Important but Not Urgent category) usually gets the short end of the stick. But when I’m already falling behind, all the additional readings and homework tasks get thrown out the window and I just work on studying instead. 


2. Do everything that will take you less than 10 minutes to complete. Get all those pesky emails out of the way, all the small team meeting notes, everything else you need to do for someone else. That will cross out a whole chunk of things from your list. You’ll be left with the meaty stuff like studying, completing assignments, etc. 


3. It’s a little damn late for you to regularly revise, so just binge everything. Honestly, this is the best way to get everything done. Don’t switch tasks or subjects. You don’t want to spend about 20 minutes just getting into the flow before switching subjects once the hour’s up. Plus, since you’re already panicking, turn that fear and panic into motivation for you to really focus for long chunks of time - just think about what you do the day before a final exam - because the threat of the exam is imminent, you basically study the whole day right? Trust me, if you’ve really screwed up your study schedule, you won’t have to worry about common procrastination (assuming you don’t want to fail). 

University is just one assignment done, moving onto the next before you even have time to breathe. It’s usually quite different to high school in that everything is quite closely packed together since it’s a 13 week semester. In high school I thought that 3 assessments in a week was the end of the world (lol pls kid). 

So just do whatever needs to be done first, and then if you finish before the day the assignment/exam is done, then great, you can study for the next assessment task. 

Still, I do recommend chucking your phone out the window just in case, since people usually all study last minute, meaning they’ll be asking you “hey do you know wtf Prof was talking about in lec 5?″


4. Break up your courses into hour-long chunks. Although we’re bingeing, it’s important that you make a list, even if it just says “Lecture 1, Lecture 2, Lecture 3″ so that you have a direction to go. Don’t allocate too much time for any one lecture, but at the same time, be realistic about how much you can cover in an hour. For example, if you’ve got 6 hours until an exam, you’re either going to study Lectures 1-3 really well, Lectures 1-6 so-so, and Lectures 1-10 superficially. 

So choose wisely based on what you know or don’t know. If there’s a topic you know quite poorly, consider if it’s worth the time to study and learn the concept, or just bank on the subject not showing up in your exam. I’m actually pretty poor at gambling what will be in the exam, so I always choose to just study everything at a basic level. 

A common pitfall I find in this area is skipping the basic stuff. You think you know it, but when you close your book and try writing it out on a blank piece of paper, you suddenly falter. This has happened to me repeatedly in an exam. I know all the really complex stuff like the back of my hand before I get into the examination room, and then I suddenly get a really simple question and I’m like wait, what was the answer again? I advise making lecture outlines that you just rote learn - this comes in useful for long response questions because you’ll often remember the small details, but will forget the next section, meaning you miss out on a massive chunk of information if you forget. 


5. Rinse and repeat. Usually after about 2 weeks(?) of catching up like this I finally see the light of day and I can return to my normal schedule. If need be, I usually cut back on sleep to about 6 hours vs. 7.5 hours, but never pull an all nighter. You cannot do this unless you have breathing room the next day (which you won’t because you screwed up in the first place). Unless it is the very last assessment task, there’s a massive risk of ruining your next exam. 


6. Try and never do that last minute ditch again. 

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. - George Santayana. 

Never again right? Remember that starting early and finishing early is the key to good grades. We’re all just young uni students at the end of the day though, so do remember to forgive yourself if you end up repeating the procrastination. I’ll be cheering you all on!

WHAT I WISH I’D KNOWN BEFORE UNIVERSITY STUDY TIPS SERIES

student stereotypes
  • the "general step-mom": very organised, does things ASAP, constantly reminds you of the work you need to do, loves to say i told you so when your stupid ass keeps on postponing said homework until it's almost too late, also checks in to make sure that you managed on time. quote: "have you started on the homework yet?"
  • the "head-in-the-clouds genius": never knows what the fuck is going on, doesn't come to most classes, always has to get reminded about homework and deadlines (repeatedly for the same thing as well), always manages to pass all the exams with pretty high grades in the end. quote: "homework?????? what homework?????"
  • the "duty-bound procrastinator": knows exactly what the fuck is going on, does nothing about the things that need to be done, always finds something else to do instead, feels anxious for postponing all of it, does everything the last second and says it's never going to happen again (a lie). quote: "fuck, homework. i'll, uh, start right after i finish with this movie marathon."
What to do after a binge!

Bingin aka stuffing yourself with (mostly) unhealthy foods in a short amount of time. Here are some helpful things to do after and how to prevent yourself from doing it again!

After/The next day

  • Drink a lot of water or/and green tea it helps your metabolism a lot!
  • Go for a walk this helps you digest the food!
  • The next day EAT! Don’t starve yourself as punishment! Starvation can lead to another binge and we don’t want that! Eat 3 big or 5 small healthy and nutritious meals! 
  • Think what caused the binge? Was it an emotional binge? Was it boredom? ask yourself this so you can prevent binging in the future!

Things to do instead

  • -Draw something!
  • -Paint your nails
  • -get away from your house/kitchen go outside or to your room!
  • -drink some water or tea!
  • -do your homework or do some cleaning!
  • -eat! make yourself a healthy meal a fruit plate or a smoothie something nutritious and go away from the kitchen to prevent eating more than you need!
  • -brush your teeth! 
  • -watch a movie or tv show!
  • -play some games!


I hope this helps if you end up binging anyways forgive yourself and try going without it again tomorrow! What I find helpful is treating myself if I don’t binge for a long time! Like buy yourself something nice like a bath bomb or some clothing this motivates me so maybe it will motivate you to!

Stay healthy!

Hey, it’s my shark-girl Erika–Who I still want to do an ask blog for. I love drawing her ;_;

Trying to get back into daily sketches. I think if I do them first thing in the day, instead of homework and commissions, I’ll do them more consistently. 

Might seem counter-intuitive or irresponsible to put off homework and commissions for an hour or two (this sketch took an hour+ I think), but I literally never can completely catch up on either of those, and it’s very easy for me to just get in a non-stop cycle of work, never getting a chance to do personally creative work.

How to be productive

My tips may look weird, but when I’m following them, I’m able to deal with all my problems and stay healthy both physically and mentally. I’m ESTJ, btw.

My student life in a few words:

  • a way to university takes from 1h 30 min to 2 hours;
  • study from Monday to Saturday (6 days a week);
  • can’t choose subjects: study what is given;
  • spend about 6-7 hours at university: there is 10-minutes break every 1h 20 min;
  • have to move from one building to another which are situated in different parts of Moscow.

Some tips:

  1. Sleep no less than 7 hours and no more than 9. If you don’t follow this rule, you’ll suffer from headache, sleepiness, inability to stay focus for a long time and bad mood. It’s difficult for me to follow this rule, when I have to get up at 6 o’clock, but at least I try to do that.
  2. Pack all necessary things before going to sleep. It will guarantee that you won’t forget your completed homework at home. Also it’s a good idea to check weather forecast in advance and decide what to wear tomorrow.
  3. Don’t drink too much tea. Yes, it helps you to be more focused and calm, but if you drink huge amounts of tea, your body will lose some important elements like Mg, you’ll suffer from insomnia, your teeth will become yellow. Keep it in mind after drinking the 5th cup of tea.
  4. If you’re tired after classes, don’t revise anything. I’m not a lazy person, but after 4 classes I want to listen to silence and absorb all information I’ve got during a day. If I do revise my notes, after a several days I feel depressed because of a huge amount of information. Plus I don’t have opportunity to revise my notes during breaks and I think it’s better to eat something healthy or reduce stress by talking to your classmates.
  5. I have to memorize about 40 words per day and only have 4-5 hours before midnight to do all my homework. That’s way I prefer to use hand-writing. It helps me to write fast, memorize spelling and meaning of words.
  6. Don’t clean your working space/room instead of writing essays and meeting with deadlines. Yes, you’re doing right thing, but in wrong time.
  7. Version 1: you’re an extrovert. If you feel alone after a few hours of studying hard, use social networks to talk to your friends. Going out with friends will help you to avoid depression and burnout.
  8. Version 2: you’re an introvert. If you’re tired of communicating, just sit at home and do what you want. Forget about the idea that while you’re young you should hang out with friends every day and be active 24/7. It’s your life. If you need to be alone for some time, do it.
  9. IMPORTANT! If even after some rest you’re exhausted and tired, feel sad and depressed, go to the psychotherapist. It’s not cheap, but it can save your nervous system. My experience 1: in 10th grade I couldn’t concentrate, always cried without any reason and couldn’t communicate with other people. Even during the summer break I suffered from mood swings and was tired 24/7. It turned out to be depression. My experience 2: I couldn’t understand why I was afraid of talking to my professors and why I was so terribly shy during my classes. It was noticed by my classmates and professors, but I couldn’t explain why I was behaving like that. The reason was my relationships with my mother who has been manipulating me since my childhood. It killed all my nervous system and self-esteem. Please, don’t be ashamed of your psychological problems.
things i wish i could tell my parents

you tell me that i should have an idea of what i want to do with my life, then crush my dreams when i finally figure it out.

you tell me that i should love myself, then insult me with everything you have when i screw up.

you tell me that i should be happy with my body and then tell me that i’m only “not hungry” because i’m trying to lose weight.

you tell me to love the way i look but try and get me to wear makeup and change the way i look.

you tell me to be accepting and love everyone but shun me when i have friends that aren’t the same race, gender, or sexuality as me.

you tell me to use my words but then call me weird for expressing myself with words on paper instead of verbally.

you tell my to speak up but you never listen.

you tell me to be patient when you have no idea how to be patient with your own children.

you tell me you don’t have favorites but then force me to stop doing my homework to cook while my brother who is failing all his classes wastes his life away on video games.

you tell me to make sure my brothers do the right thing but then turn a blind eye when they’re not.

you tell me that making money matters more than being happy with what i want to do when you’re not only broke, but unhappy.

you tell me that i’m only human, that i’m not perfect, and that i need to calm my “ego”, when you make me feel worthless for being human and making mistakes.

you tell me to lose weight even though i’m the only one in the family within the “healthy” weight range.

you tell me to smile but all i see is a frown mirrored on your face.

you tell me that anger is not good for me when you get angry over the simplest things, causing me to be angry as well.

you tell me that depression will get me locked up in a mental hospital but you do nothing to help me.

you tell me that you love me but you show it in ways that are abnormal. in ways that make me feel like i don’t belong.


i see all of these posts about how you should “love your parents” and “treat them right”, but what about posts for people with toxic parents and family? i do love my parents, i do. and when i’m rich and successful i’m going to be the one taking care of them. 

please, if you feel like your parents REFUSE to understand you (not that they don’t understand you) talk to someone. your voice deserves to be heard. and if it won’t be by your parents, let it be by someone who wants, who demands to hear your glorious voice.

Unexpected

“Uhm, Harry?” Draco eyed his roommate suspiciously. He shifted nervously in his desk chair as Harry’s intense green eyes seemed to graze over him. The man had a weird look on his face and Draco did not like it.

“Yes Draco?” Harry replied, stepping out of the doorframe into their shared dorm.

“Why are you looking at me like that?” Draco pushed his chair backwards until it collided with his desk. Then, when Harry showed no sign of slowing down he got up and stepped away, so he now almost had his back pressed against the wall behind him. He knew he was acting ridiculous, but so was Harry. If he didn’t know any better the green eyes coming towards him were filled with… with…

Lust was the wrong word, but it was definitely some sort of desire. And curiosity. And determination. And some form of fondness Draco could not place at all.

A combination scary enough to make him do one more step backwards. His heels hit the wall.

anonymous asked:

May I ask your opinion on "The Good Doctor"? I thought the first episode was stunning, but I'd like to hear your thoughts?

I’m liking it a lot. Shaun isn’t just a collection of autistic traits. He has actual motivations to do what he does. Scenes show things from his POV. We see why he does some things that can look weird to NT’s instead of seeing him do them with no explanation.

The most important aspect is he’s a character with a POV, with feelings, with aspirations and with emotions. He isn’t a plot device. That’s what media does wrong with autism a lot– autistic people are just window dressing to move a plot and beyond that they serve no purpose.

But Shaun is the central character in this series. You can tell the actor did his homework about autism. While I wish we could get an actually autistic actor, but I think having an actor portray autism in a fashion that isn’t going down the list of traits is a step towards the right direction.

I feel like people don’t give media enough credit when it really tries to portray something. Perfect representation is never going to happen because no single person can encompass everyone’s experiences.

I call it good because the show clearly wants autistic people to relate to Shaun. Even if his reactions aren’t identical to mine, I can see a scene in his POV and be like “Oh, yeah, that’s familiar as hell…”

My parents notice I have a lot of mannerisms similar to his. (Particularly the clasped hands– I tend to do that if I don’t have a stim toy or some other object in my hands.)

I really hope we get to see Shaun have a meltdown or shutdown onscreen. That needs to be normalized as something that happens to autistic people sometimes. I’d love to see him go through one and deal with it. Kids aren’t the only autistic people who go through those, and I want to see the “it’s a tantrum” or “it’s pouting” stereotype get killed.

I also hope to see Shaun get super pissed off at someone. I betcha his tone of voice will change and NT’s won’t realize what’s going on until he yells. We got a little hint of it in the second episode where he goes to the girl’s house because he worried her stomachache wasn’t stress and it turns out he was right. You can see his frustration at being dismissed by his tone of voice.

I love that because I’m more tuned to tone of voice than facial expressions, so I recognized he was upset immediately. I was all “Dude, let him in, your kid is sick!”

Now if we could just get Freddie Highmore away from Autism Speaks…

I see a lot of posts about how to be productive when you have memory issues, executive dysfunction, etc. so I thought I’d share my own way of doing things in case it’s helpful to anybody. 

  • I keep a to-do list. 
    • I use the “notes” program on my laptop and phone so I’ll never lose it (I have a Mac, but I think most computers have some sort of notepad feature?) I never delete the list or start a new one. Instead, I keep the same document and change it as necessary. 
    • I have a variety of bolded headings which I make bulleted lists under. There are things like homework, shopping, housework, important dates/reminders, etc.
    • I put a due date next to everything and try to order things from most to least urgent. I also sort homework assignments by class.
    • If one task has many parts or steps that I might forget, I’ll add another bulleted list under that task of everything I need to remember.
  • I try to plan out the order in which I want to do things.
    • If I have a difficult or time-consuming task that I’m having trouble starting, I usually try to do something smaller first, like a quick assignment or some cleaning, to get myself feeling productive.
    • While I try to accomplish things in order of urgency, I make an effort not to leave a bunch of big assignments for last. I try to get some of the more difficult ones out of the way early on so I can do easier tasks in between.
    • I also try to determine when I want to do things. I don’t usually write this down; rather, I’ll decide mentally beforehand: I’m going to fill these forms out in the morning tomorrow, I’m going to work on this assignment Wednesday and this one Thursday, I’ll save this task for the weekend, etc. I personally don’t do this for every task, only ones that I need a certain amount of time or energy for.
    • If I have a task that I have to do regularly, I’ll try to pick a specific time or day to do it (feed the fish in the morning, take out the trash on Fridays, etc). If you struggle to keep on track with things like this, you can set alarms or keep a written schedule for things that won’t change.
  • Unless time is an immediate issue, I don’t force myself to finish tasks when I’m low on energy.
    • If I want to get something done but I can’t make myself do it at the moment, I wait until I’m “in the mood” or feeling a quick burst of energy or productivity and work on it until the feeling goes away. If I try to force myself to work on something when I have no energy, it won’t come out good.
    • If I can’t find the energy to work on a large assignment, I can usually still find the energy to knock something tiny off the list. Even if it’s something super easy and quick, it’s still one more task you don’t have to worry about.
    • If I can’t complete an assignment but I can do a tiny bit of it, I do it. Even if it’s just cleaning a tiny part of a room or writing one sentence in an essay, it’s still one more fraction of the task completed.
  • Despite being 20 years old, I’m still finding out what conditions I work best under.
    • I struggle to read or concentrate for long periods of time, but I’ve recently discovered that having a stim toy as well as rocking while reading helps me focus.
    • I’ve tried doing homework while listening to music, silence, etc. and I’ve found that white noise like static or rain helps me focus best.
    • I’ve also found that it’s easiest for me to get things done in certain rooms, sitting on certain furniture, around certain people (or no people), etc.
    • Not all tasks are the same. I listen to music while cleaning but not while reading. I use my fidget cube in class but my tangle while doing homework. I like to cook with my friends but be alone while reading. 
    • Take time to experiment and find what helps you and what disrupts you when working on different tasks.

Obviously this list doesn’t cover every obstacle and some of these things won’t work for everyone, but if even a few people find this useful then I’m happy.

Your Name and Kiss Belong in the Same Sentence

Summary: Neither Dan or Phil has ever had a boyfriend before and they think that part of the reason might be because nobody even realises they like boys.  So, as best friends do, they decide to pretend to date each other, that way at least it’s obvious they aren’t straight.  And with an agreed upon set of boundaries, nothing can go wrong.  Right?

Word Count: 9k

Warnings: swearing, anxiety attack, underage drinking/alcohol

A/N: me actually finishing a fic?? who knew this was even possible anymore lmao (although i found 6k of this already done in my drafts from october so?? does this even count).  also tysm to leah for letting me scream at her about this and for editing it for me, you’re the best <33

read on ao3 instead

Dan and Phil had been best friends for what felt like forever.  They had grown up together, in houses only a few blocks away and couldn’t remember a time where they hadn’t known each other.  They had always been Dan and Phil, their names never separated.

Everyone had warned them that friends often grow apart over time, especially as they moved from middle school to high school.  For some reason people seemed to think that there was no way that the two boys could stay as close friends as they were forever.

So like, I learned that Cor is five whole years younger than Regis and I was just like, “What in the world Cor.”

AND THEN

I learned that Cor was like, thirteen when he joined the Crownsguard and then fifteen, he started working for the kings and like, he served King Mor (Regis’ dad!?) as his bodyguard and then went to become Regis’ advisor/driver/personal babysitter like Ignis is to Noct (I think?).

AND THEN 

Cor “I don’t give a crap” Leonis decided to fight some kind of undying warrior death reaper and, not only lives, but also cuts off his arm and now the dude keeps Cor’s sword as like, a souvenir of their meeting!? 

WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL COR!?

He then gets the moniker “The Immortal”. At fifteen. Goes back and is like, “Yeah, kinda have to work on the whole ‘not die’  thing so I guess I will be careful now.” and then serves King Regis. 

HOW.


And I come with this all to say: 

Can anyone else imagine Cor still doing school, like he would be in highschool, and just, doing his homework while Regis is doing his duties and like, Regis comes and tries to procrastinate via helping Cor with homework because Cor can take on a thousand undead warriors, slice off the undying warrior’s arm, come back alive, guard two kings but can’t figure out how to substitute systems of equations!?

“Cor, what are you getting all frustrated over?”

“Nothing Your Highness.”

“Oh come on, I can help. I took Algebra too, once. Let me see.”

*shows him the problem*

“Ah, I hated these things.”

“I just don’t understand.”

*the next three hours are spent on Algebra instead of anything else*
