things i do instead of my 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.

anonymous asked:

I feel so stupid lol ☺️ but i really need to ask this, i am 16-17 and i wanna be more girly and like lil'woman, how can i? Thank you soooo much again 💕

 Oh! You want to be more “girly” ? Well, I’m going to take in fact what girly normally means in this sense and use it like that ahhah! Don’t feel stupid, though.

First thing’s first:

You have your own style that is unique to you…etc. You don’t have to be something else, though if you are currently not happy with yourself and are working on self improvement, I encourage you to do so. Let’s start with some basics on what “girly” or “feminine” is! 

Girly is basically acting in very feminine and liking feminine things. However, there is MUCH more to it than just the look. I’m going to start off with the more “mature” side of things, as you said you wanted to be more like a woman (which includes maturity) and then we can work on other things! It’s not just a style, it’s a mindset. The “fuck you i’m going to get my goals” mindset.

Embracing yourself:

/Note: None of this is set in stone. This is just my opinion on to help her grow into a stronger and more mature woman.

  • Do not take shit. Walk with your head high and smile. If someone puts you down, ask yourself: “Is this a logical problem or is it opinionated?” If it is opinionated, ignore it. If it is logical and backed with evidence and reasoning, take it into factor and make note to work on that.
  • Learn to treat yourself. It’s okay to want to spend a little extra money on yourself sometimes.
  • Be independent. Don’t rely on others to get things done for you. Your homework is your homework. Your job is your job. Be independent and don’t rely on them to do it for you!
  • Treat yourself and others with respect. I have a rule, instead of just “you have to earn my respect” I say: “I respect until you disrespect, and at that point, I drop all respect I’ve had for you.”
  • Fight immaturity with maturity. If someone is being messy as hell, fight back with maturity. Give no fucks. Show no mercy. When they call you a name and try to fight, if you want to piss them off AND come off as mature, say something like: “Honestly, I have goals to reach. I don’t have time for you to be immature and try to ruin that for me.” And walk off.
  • Don’t be afraid to break sometimes. It happens to the strongest of people. There is no way I could count how many times I sat in bed at night trying to stop crying. Cry, and afterwards, take a deep breath and tell yourself that you’ll get through this.
  • DO NOT let people dictate who you are. Don’t let these little boys or girls tell you that you need to look like this or that. Don’t let them tell you who you should be. Not even your parents are allowed to tell you who to be. If they try, pretend to obey but do the exact opposite. Be who YOU are.
  • Get your schoolwork done, babe. Seriously this is important, it isn’t about the grades. It’s about furthering your knowledge and showing everyone that you can do what they think you can’t.
  • Have fun! Have fun if you want, but be safe.
  • Do everything with confidence, even if you have to fake it!
  • Follow your passions. Maybe you like dance, singing art, makeup or whatever else. Do it. 
  • Remember that if anyone ever says you fucked them, that only gives you power.
  • If you’re giving an assignment wednesday and are told you need it finished by friday, work on it wednesday. Cut off all distractions and work on that assignment. Afterwards, write down everything you didn’t understand. The next day, spend time learning about what you didn’t understand and proofread the assignment 3 times. This applies for ALL days.
  • Exams coming up soon? Stop staying up all night studying. Study in 10-15 minute intervals with 5 minute breaks. Quiz yourself every hour to find your weak links and then study those. What are you scared of failing most? Focus on that.
  • You’re 16-17. You know about sex. You know how it works. You may have already have sex. This is okay. All I ask of you is to be safe. Do NOT rely on someone to have condoms, if you need, go buy them yourself. Know how to do things safely. Remember: Kink isn’t spontaneous, it’s safe words. Anal isn’t a quick slip, it’s reading articles on how to do it and lube. Be safe, be real.
  • In the case that you get pregnant: Breathe. Make your choices. Do what you need to do and always remember that you can run in my askbox and talk to me about everything. I will always be here to listen. You can also read articles and such on parenting advice, how to do it as a teenager..etc.
  • I’m telling you the above because I’ve had friends who got pregnant at 15-16 or 17 and didn’t know what to do.
  • Also: 
  • Don’t slut shame  or talk bad about girls who want to have sex and have lots of it. Instead, encourage them to do it safely.
  • Don’t put anyone down that isn’t as popular as you. Bring them up. 
  • Being sweet will get you a long way.
  • Act twice your age if you want to look really mature in front of all the teachers and shit. Literally you can read articles..etc. on maturity.
  • Remember that maturity does not mean you can’t have fun.
  • If you feel depressed…etc. talk to someone. Don’t be silent.
  • One of the first signs I ever had of anorexia was that I craved the disorder. Which means I literally wanted to be it. Little did I know it was going to drag me through hell. If you have these thoughts, get help.
  • Do not be afraid of going to get help from a professional.

Now we can get on to the typical “style” or such. This is just some stuff that I’ve accumulated. However there is so much more to it. You dress how YOU want to dress. Do what makes you confident. But if you want, I do have a polyvore. (celestial-sweets). Now onto some style recommendations to embrace your femininity! When most people think “feminine” they think “dress” when I think feminine, I think “gorgeous”. There will be a massive variety under this. So you can wear whatever you want and still have style recommendations.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

Thank you everyone for helping me reach the 300 followers milestone! As a gift, I’d like to present you with some of my tips :)

Recently, I met a group of very motivational people, and they gave me tips on how I could manage my time better. I obviously took notes and thanked them so much because it definitely helped me out a lot.

Note: These tips won’t apply to all people as it is mostly focused on junior students (I’m a junior, so it might not be as helpful for the students in uni/college??)

It is a common thing for all students to have struggles with organising their time (especially me– why am I giving tips; wtf??), so I present to you: how to sort out your time!! 

What I’m going to cover:

  • Finding time to do work
  • How you can beat procrastination
  • Homework
  • Revision
  • Assignments + Exams

Be prepared, because this is an immense post. *Looks down* Yeah, it seems like I’m about to jump down a cliff made of tips.

for nursey week, day 2: “surprise or simplicity.”


“If that pen explodes in your mouth,” Dex says from the bathroom doorway, “I am not gonna feel bad for you.”

Derek startles–and does drop the pen out of his mouth–and looks up. “What?”

Dex cocks a brow at him, flicking off the bathroom light and flopping down on the hotel bed next to Derek’s. “You’ve had two pens explode in your mouth from chewing on them like that,” he says. His red hair is wet, tousled from where he must’ve run his hands through it after his shower, and he rolls onto his stomach, propping himself on his elbows to look at Derek. “What’re you glaring at, anyway?”

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.

Stuff like this happens to me too, so I’ve learned to ignore it as well. But if it were these guys…

SCENARIO: HOW WOULD RFA+V+SAERAN REACT TO ACCIDENTALLY TOUCHING YOUR CHEST

Yoosung

  • Depth Perception is the WORST when you only have one eye.
  • You guys were about to  head out together to a fancy dinner, when he noticed you were wearing the necklace he had bought for your anniversary.
  • It was a simple gold chain with a bejeweled star pendant not completely real but pretty dang expensive
  • It warmed his heart that you were wearing it; he reached out to you to inspect the pendant a bit more properly.
  • …only to miss by a couple inches.
  • His fingers grazed the top of your breasts and even slipped into a bit of the cleavage It was a classy dress so it wasn’t too much or anything
  • ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? OH MY GOD I AM SO SORRY
  • His hand immediately flew away and both of you turned away from each other.
  • He was still bowing and vehemently apologizing to you; this poor boy was so worried that you would think he’s a creep.
  • But you shyly said that you… really didn’t mind it so much as you fidgeted with the skirt of your dress.
  • His head nearly exploded at that. “Wait- you- I- what?”
  • You giggled at his stammering and pulled him away to your reservation for the night.

Jaehee

  • You were sitting on a desk, in your cami and shorts, settling some papers.
  • Jaehee insisted that she help as well, but you wanted to do them yourself.
  • She brought you a cup of coffee to keep you alert.
  • When she came back to take the cup back, she chuckled when she saw you in the exact same position she left you in.
  • Except you had fallen asleep with your head propped up on your hand.
  • even with the coffee….
  • You had finished the drink, and put it beside you at a place Jaehee couldn’t reach very easily.
  • Careful not to disturb, she maneuvered her hand to finally grab the mug.
  • However, while pulling out, her arm grazed your breasts…
  • She stiffened as you shuffled a bit, but otherwise resumed your nap.
  • When she successfully procured the cup, she quickly made her escape.
  • The slamming of the door woke you up
  • She slid down the wall beside the door, heart racing at what had just happened.
  • For the next few days, she couldn’t look at you in the eye, and you were supremely confused, but let it be.

Zen

  • You both had finally gone on your very first date. And it was going great so far.
  • The amusement park is always one of the best places.
  • As you very eagerly wandered around from store to store, Zen couldn’t help but notice that you were attracting quite a few eyes.
  • He ‘casually’ draped an arm around your shoulders and glared at the other men who were looking.
  • When he was finally done with the others, he noticed that you had suddenly gone quiet.
  • He lowered himself to your head level to ask whats wrong, you being short and all.
  • You shyly pointed to his hand, which was very closely hovering over your right breast…
  • He immediately straightened up and pulled away super quickly.
  • “I’m so sorry! You should have told me earlier!!! Argh! And when I was trying my best to protect you too.”
  • He was so ashamed of himself, and so had put quite a bit of distance between you two.
  • Pouting, you come closer to him and rest his arm on your waist.
  • His heart raced at your boldness, and the happiness was restored as he pulled you even closer.

707/Luciel/Saeyoung

  • Finally with Vanderwood’s permission and Saeran agreeing to house-sit, he could finally take you out on a long drive today.
  • You were amused by just how eager he was to take you out.
  • You finally get to ride on one of my babies.
  • This boy is so eager, he all but pushed you into the passenger seat.
  • He then jumps into his own driver’s seat and starts the car, only to have it beep at the both of them for not wearing seatbelts.
  • Now, on a normal day, he would ignore it or just wouldn’t have forgotten.
  • But today, he ain’t having it.
  • He gets up on his seat and reaches over to your side to buckle your seat belt for you.
  • But then, he topples all over you because he wasn’t very balanced when he was doing it.
  • He tries to steady himself by pushing against the car seat… but he accidentally gropes you chest in the process.
  • SEEEVVVEEEENNNN!!
  • Before you could push him away, he jumps out and settles on his own seat.
  • Poor boy can’t look at you in the face now; he’s simply sits there as you adjust yourself.
  • You wanted to yell at him, but it looked like he was already beating himself up for it, so you let it pass.
  • It doesn’t take him too long to be his cheery self again, but he is definitely more careful now.

Jumin

  • It’s canon that this dude has a play Gray station and a Xbox Zet Box in the penthouse.
  • You would probably convince him to play it with you at least once a week.
  • Both of you like the more interactive games than the ones that don’t require moving around.
  • But we all know he is terrible with technology. If the vending machine wasn’t proof enough…
  • So whenever it is his turn, he’s frantically waving around the remote, trying to get the game to sense it.
  • You have to hold back your laughter at this adorable frustration.
  • He refuses to take any help from you though.
  • One time, he actually got so engrossed, he couldn’t tell his actions had gotten wilder.
  • So when his hand swiped through something soft at his side, he froze at the foreign feeling.
  • He turned to find you protectively covering your chest with your arms.
  • Putting two and two together, he set the controller aside and calmly apologized.
  • You chuckled awkwardly, saying that it’s okay since it was accident.
  • Nodding, he excused himself to the bedroom, saying that he had some work to look at.
  • But as soon as the door closed behind him, both of you turn super super embarrassed and try to calm yourselves down.

V/Jihyun

  • Would you believe me if I said that this happens a lot more than you think?
  • In fact, it is how your first meeting went.
  • Jumin introduced you to him at the RFA party.
  • But he may have forgotten to give him an idea about your height.
  • So when he outstretched his had to shake yours, you were shook when he was reaching towards your chest
  • Thankfully he stopped moments before contact, so you warily shake his hand.
  • Later on, you give him a pretty good idea about your height so that he doesn’t do it.
  • But sometimes you swear that he does it on purpose around the house.
  • The only proof you have that they are truly accidents is when his ears turn an adorable shade of red every time he realizes.
  • No matter how suavely he tries to ignore it or apologizes, his ears always give him away.

Unknown/Saeran

  • Twas a cold winter night, and the two of you were watching a movie under a large quilt on the sofa.
  • Saeyoung wanted to join you guys too, but Saeran hissed and glared at his brother until he finally gave up.
  • You both kept adjusting and readjusting your positions until finally Saeran had an arm linked to yours and settled comfortably on your shoulder.
  • Okay, so maybe the movie was bit too bland for his taste; his head kept bobbing as he dozed on and off.
  • In the middle, he fell asleep and his head slipped away from your shoulder.
  • Groggily, he set himself back on what he thought was your shoulder; admiring how soft it suddenly became.
  • When he did this, you abruptly tore your attention away from the screen, watching Saeran peacefully snooze on your chest.
  • You were freaking out, not knowing how to move him without waking him up…
  • But instead, you smooth his hair and pet him softly, smiling at the sight in front of you.
  • “LOOK WHAT WE HAVE HERE”
  • You jumped and shrieked a little, turning your head to see Saeyoung smirking at you both from his door.
  • Saeran’s eyes popped open, and upon realizing where he was, immediately jumped away from you.
  • You both yelled at Seven until he finally went back to his room.
  • “You wanna watch something else?” “I’ll choose this time.”

The thing with Saeran happened with my baby bro; he snuggled up to my side while I was doing homework. I didn’t realize he was asleep until I tried to get up. Since he was only four, it wasn’t as awkward as it could have been. XDD

Apply for CBYX!

For those of you who have not heard of CBYX, it is an exchange program between Germany and the United States that is sponsored by the U.S. Congress and German Bundestag. For one year, youth age 15-18 live with a host family and attend German high school. Going the other way, German high school students do the same here in the U.S. Best part is that CBYX is a full scholarship! Sound intriguing? We hope so. We bring this scholarship up now as the deadline for applications looms in the distance–December 1st. In order to arrange the details and finish the app in time, now is the time for action if you want to throw your hat in the ring for this prestigious scholarship.

To help you conceptualize the before, during, and after of being a CBYXer, we asked our social media expert Claire, who completed her year in 2010, to talk with us about her experience.

What made you initially apply to CBYX?

I applied to CBYX for a few reasons. My uncle moved to Germany many decades ago, and I’d grown up hearing this mysterious language being spoken by him and my cousins when they visited. My brother and I would sit with our German-to-English dictionary trying to pick up what was being discussed. That interest combined with a natural sense of adventure led me to favoring the more untraditional path of doing a year abroad in high school and wanting to do it in Germany. Unfortunately, being an exchange student in high school isn’t as common in the U.S. (yet), so winning a full scholarship helped convince my parents and school to support it.

How did you arrange the year abroad with your school?

Arranging a year abroad in high school is difficult if your school hasn’t had a student do it before you. I was the first at my school, and so I had a meeting with my guidance counselor as soon as I could to discuss my options. I suggest bringing materials with you about the prestige of the program, and emphasizing your flexibility. For example, I took online courses for English and History before I left for the year as they wouldn’t be comparable in Germany. I also took the SAT’s abroad as to be on track for applying to college when I returned. Basically, I’d speak in statements with your school about how you will arrange the year rather than coming with questions–as it opens up the door for them saying it isn’t possible or that you would need to repeat a year.

Was it difficult to learn German? Did you speak it before you left?

I hadn’t traveled outside of the U.S. before CBYX, so for me it was shocking to get off the train in Berlin and suddenly everything was in German–signs, announcements, labels. I had two years of middle school/high school German at my disposal which gave me limited vocab to work with. At first, I prioritized what I said because it often required running into a word I didn’t know, which was exhausting. But word by word and day by day my German improved. I was very motivated to learn because with each word I learned my daily life became a little easier and I got to show my true colors a little more. It is a humbling experience to have to lean on people a little more for help speaking or to learn the words for things, but it’s all part of the growing pains of learning a new language and tons of people have done it before you so there is no shame in it.

What was living with a host family like?

I lived with a family in a residential part of Berlin. At home in Pennsylvania, I had a single parent, was the only girl, and was the youngest of four. In Berlin, I was the middle child and had two sisters. The family welcomed me as one of their own, and despite my preconceived notion of all Germans being tall and blonde, I found myself blending in in a family of short brown-haired females. My first day with the family, my host sisters and I played dress up– giggling as we threw leopard print bras over our shirts and wore big clown-like glasses. I knew then that I’d found myself in the right home.

At the same time, it isn’t all easy–nor is your normal family. Living in someone else’s home requires some flexibility to their set routine, and communicating why you do what you do–which your mom doesn’t have to ask because she has seen you since you were born– but your host family has not.

What were the biggest cultural differences you experienced?

As cliche as it is, I was shocked by how blunt Germans were. I was used to a lot of sugar coating and it took a while to appreciate how Germans communicate. I also had to get used to the independence given to people my age, as there was a lot more hand-holding and rules back in the states. In Germany, I was treated mostly like an adult, which was duly awesome and scary as it meant quickly taking on a lot of responsibility. Lastly, using public transport was a big difference from taking a school bus or being picked up in a car by your parents. It put a lot of new pressure on me to know how to get home or remember bus routes and schedules.

How is German school different than American school?

German school was WAY different than an American high school. At least in my school–which was an Oberschule, I ended and started at a different time almost every day, depending on which subjects I had. I had a class of about 20 kids who I had my core classes with and my teachers rotated to us instead of vise versa. Exams made up the majority of my grade rather than homework or participation and exams didn’t include multiple choice but rather short answers and essays. Also, there was no such thing as substitute teachers, rather if a teacher had vacation or was sick, you just didn’t have that class. This said, every school is different, so yours may resemble an American school more.

Is there a “good” year to do it?

I did my CBYX program during my junior year. This is arguably the most tricky year to do it, as colleges are looking closely at your grades and most people take the SAT’s that year. It is definitely possible though and I had no issue graduating or getting into a good college. There are pros to doing CBYX as a gap year between high school and college, in that you don’t have to stress out as much about your grades at your German school and can defer your college acceptance.

Did you get to travel during the year?

I got to travel a lot. Some host families will take you on their family vacations. With other CBYXers living across the country and the abundance of train options, it is easy to visit them too. Additionally, going back to young people being given more independence in Germany, it is not unusual to go with friends to other countries and stay in youth hostels or travel in general without parental supervision.

Have you returned to Germany since?

I have been lucky enough to have returned to Germany several times in the years after my program, and also to have had my host family visit me in Pennsylvania. My host family still refers to “my bedroom” and when I’m back I curl up on the couch eating Erdnussflips with my host sisters and watch German soap operas like no time has passed. There are certainly still things about Germany I don’t understand and words I haven’t learned yet, but CBYX solidified Germany as a second home.

How has having completed CBYX helped you in the years after?

CBYX truly changed my life course, academically and professionally. Seeing an entirely different tax, welfare, and education system in Germany inspired me to study economics in college. I’ve volunteered supporting high school exchange students ever since I returned to the U.S. and have helped choose new generations of CBYXers. Speaking German has connected me with Americans and Germans alike in my city which has been the core source of a lot of my friendships. I also eventually found myself working at the German Embassy, which obviously wouldn’t have been possible without my year living there, the German skills I acquired, and the connections that came out of that. There are people who walk away from CBYX and don’t use their German again or don’t feel the draw to return back to Germany, but if you do choose to keep involved in German relations, CBYX is a very supportive, diverse, and well-connected community.

What advice would you give those applying to or on the program?

The best advice I received was as I was leaving on the airplane. A chaperone told me to “say yes to everything”. This year is a chance to try out a new sport, a new way of talking, a new style, a new way of being–lots of things that wouldn’t be possible or easy back home where everyone knows you. It is a chance to ask questions and expose yourself to new viewpoints. So just say yes. Personally, doing so led me to visiting my first nuclear power plant (I did not know the word for this and said yes anyhow) or to a planetarium show that blasted nothing but Queen (which if you haven’t done before, I highly recommend). I tried cow’s tongue, which is surprisingly delicious on bread, and fell off my bike twice during a community bike tour. I exited my comfort zone more than I stayed in it and came back feeling like I’d lived years within just one. I’d broken outside the bubble of home and gained a new understanding of myself in the process.

How to be productive af at school

5.10.17 050 49/100 days of productivity Hi, guys, it’s been a little bit since I posted but I’m home sick because I was in bit of an accident and wanted to post today. I hope you find some of these helpful:) 

  1. If your stuck there might as well not waste your free time doing things you can there
  2. Listen to what the teachers say/ pay attention Obviously… 
  3. When taking notes if you can review them beforehand do, but if you can  take pictures of the slides and then write the gist of them in your notebook you can save time while still getting the same amount done
  4. Ask friends during lunch or breaks to help you with things you don’t understand
  5. Teachers will be more willing to help you if you start something in advance 
  6. Have an easy go-to method of note taking that is universal, this is going to make taking notes go by faster and easier making sure you don’t miss anything or have no space.
  7. Use free periods and study halls to study instead of just homework. Sometimes if I have a free period and just do my homework I get home and I'm too lazy to study but if it was my homework I know I would have to do it.
  8. Make a list of things you want to finish before the day is over and stick to it
  9. Place yourself with the correct people. People who want the same things or have similar goals are best to sit with don’t just spend the period just laughing and goofing off
  10. Know how to say “No” we all would rather do that fun thing or just forget about school but you have to remember that sometimes ou have to just get something done and the reward could be saying “yes”
