INSERT READMORE HERE :“D

I feel like hell all of the time and it’s so exhausting. Mental health is in the ditch. I really wish i could be as active as i was way back when, but I’m really just doing the best i can in life as a whole right now.
Thank you guys so much for still being here for me. I know I’m not always a good person. I will always do regrettable things. I miss communicating with you guys and streaming some and getting asks and all. I know i have to put in a lot more to get to where i was. I used to be able to love people who needed love and help and donate and care. Blah blah.
Anyway, there’s that. Just a little bit of whining to help me calm down. You guys are so kind and i appreciate you all. 💕

New York, 2009
“So we’re out there on Sunset Boulevard and there’s this outdoor patio and all these people are sitting there, there’s a fucking tattoo shop right next to it. And all of a sudden I get this phone call. So I get out and get on the phone and it’s my wife Adrienne. And we’ve been making the record for a long time… We start fighting on the phone like “Blah blah blah!” In the middle of Sunset Boulevard, I’m standing there like this on the phone, and we’re fighting and fighting and fighting…”

It hurts to see people posting mean things to Amy Acker’s Facebook page. All because she made a post thanking Obama. A girl said something along the lines of just because you’re a celebrity you think that means you can automatically say whatever you want publicly & her eyes rolled so hard blah blah blah. Another said she should work on her acting and let others worry about politics.

How about its freedom of speech and it doesn’t matter whether someone is a celebrity or not. Non-celebrities post their political opinions all the time. How about Amy probably posted that knowing she’d get hate but was brave enough to put her opinion out there. Coming from Texas where most people are conservative too. She’s a big symbol now to the LGBTQA+ community for her portrayal of a character that was at least in a same sex relationship. Amy is one of the kindest people and accepts everyone. So damn right she’d support and thank Obama and if you as a fan of hers can’t handle that then oh well.

anonymous asked:

You are taking multi variable calculus in high school? Teach me your math ways. How do you take notes? Study? Approach probs?

First of all, a major contributor to my being in multivariable in high school is luck. I was in the right place at the right time and happened to hear about this accelerated math program I’m in, and my parents happened to be able to pay the tuition.

But I think what you’re asking is, how am I surviving and passing 8ish years worth of math classes in 5 years with class once a week?

Well.

Before class I read the textbook chapter/assigned reading. This is pretty much the most useful thing you can do in the least amount of time. Read it thoroughly, take notes, and do your best to understand it like you would in class. This way, when your teacher covers the same material you’ll already be familiar with it, and less likely to get lost, and as a result you’ll do better on the homework and overall in the class. Also, if something is already in your notes from the textbook, you won’t have to write it down when it’s covered in class.

When it comes to notes, I think it works differently for everyone. I use a mechanical pencil, cheap college-ruled notebook, and bullet points. I will say, try to rephrase things in the way that makes the most sense to you instead of writing them down word-for-word. It’ll help with retention and with understanding the notes later on.

On homework, be a perfectionist. Rewrite your proofs until they’re bulletproof. Understand every step in every solution, and why it’s necessary. Don’t just learn the method, learn why it works.

And last but not least, exams. Study everything, even if it was just a footnote on slide 14. Know the theory behind the theorem. Rework and rephrase ideas until they make sense to you. Reread all the relevant textbook chapters, all the class slides, all of your notes, and all of your homework. If there’s something you got wrong or don’t understand, figure it out. Don’t stop until you could explain to a stranger on the bus every detail of anything and everything that could be on the test.

(This method is extremely time consuming, but it pays off. If you want any further details, my inbox is open. Also, use wolfram alpha to check algebra.)

Lin released more tracks of the Hamilton Mixtape including one I’d been waiting for called “I Wrote My Way Out” because I knew it was based off “Hurricane” which is probably my favorite song in the show (or one of them anyway), and I was listening to it this morning as I walked and I was like damn this is good and also it spits on Ronald Reagan a little, which I am always for, and then I heard Lin’s verse which goes like this: 

High speed, dubbing these rhymes in dual cassette deck
Running out of time like I’m Jonathan Larson’s Rent check
My mind is where the wild things are, Maurice Sendak
In withdrawal, I want it all, please give me that pen back
Y'all, I got my first beating from the other kids when I was caught reading
Oh, you think you smart? Blah! Start bleeding
My pops tried in vain to get me to fight back
Sister tapped my brains, said, pssh, you’ll get ‘em right back
Oversensitive, defenseless, I made sense of it, I pencil in
The lengths to which I’d go to learn my strengths and knock 'em senseless

These sentences are endless, so what if they leave me friendless?
Damn, you got no chill, fucking right I’m relentless
I know Abuela’s never really gonna win the lottery
So it’s up to me to draw blood with this pen, hit an artery
This Puerto Rican’s brains are leakin’ through the speakers
And if he can be the shining beacon this side of the G.W.B and
Shine a light when it’s gray out

…and then I almost lost it walking back to my office from Starbucks, tbh. It’s amazing how music can crop up just as you need courage, and it gives it to you? Bless Lin Manuel Miranda honestly. 

Deja Vu

Watching the U.S. Presidential result. What a deja vu.

I remember the moment when Lee Myung-Bak was confirmed as the president of South Korea.

It was 2008. He was known as a successful businessman (Hyundai CEO), but was suspected to deceive thousands of investors by his BBK fraud.

Lee was a disgusting misogynist (He said something like “Ugly prostitutes provide better service” etc), but his supporters ignored all the accusastions and news reports. They believed the media was biased against him.

Young people (especially young women) absolutely hated him, but older people blindly loved him because of a famous old TV drama based on his life story. (It was a man’s success story from a mere salaryman to a CEO, blah blah)

At that time, Korean people were sick of the previous president (Roh Mu-Hyun) because they believed his pro human rights policy ruined the economy and caused tax burden. About 9 years has passed. Ironically, the current public survey tells us a totally different story. Now people believe that Roh was the best president in our history and miss him.

President Lee Myung-Bak ruined the country for his personal profit. Older people said “Well, Mr. Lee is already rich, so he wouldn’t syphon off money from companies like previous presidents.” Well. they were wrong. He syphoned about 4 billion dollars, but has never been punished because he passed his presidency to Ms. Park Geun-Hye. (He supported the puppet president to cover his own crimes.) As a result, you know what is happening in South Korea right now.

Corruption and cynicism ruined Korean people’s mind. Young people call this country “hell” and curse the older generation who voted for Lee and Park. Men’s rape and violence rates have been quickly escalated for the last 9 years because of the unstable economic conditions, so radical feminism gradually gained power among young women. The young hate the old, women hate men, the whole country was divided.  

All of these accumulated resentment exploded when the current Shamanism scancal was revealed, and led them to the candle light demonstration to demand the resignation of President Park.

After all, the politics is the problem.

So, welcome to hell, US friends. I hope it wouldn’t take much time for you to wake up like us.

“You know, I consider it a high honor and an exceptional privilege to spend these moments with you. Aw, who am I kidding, Summoner? Ha! Let’s drop all that royal jibber-jabber. It’s just us, right? Right! The thing is, I love being around you. I’ve never been happier! Sure, you’re a valuable addition to the Order of Heroes-blah, blah, blabbity, blah. But after spending so much time with you, I just think of you more like…a close friend. Do you feel the same? Are we friends? Best friends? On our way to being best friends? We are? Er, which one? Never mind. I’m just delighted… so delighted…so very…Waah! You’ve made me cry, you silly goose.
I won’t forget this day. Why, I’ll save all my tears of happiness in a vial to remind me-forever!”

What's so funny?

There you go giggling again! I’m not even touching you! What… did I do something? I mean I’m not doing anything, I’m just putting my hands over your belly! Yeah yeah yeah I know, hands and feet tied, blah blah blah, whatever, but I didn’t lay a hand on you, so why are you giggling? Ooooh you must’ve thought of a joke huh? Oh here I have one! Why does this little lee laugh so much? …. My goodness! Laughing hard already? I didn’t even finish the joke! You sure are easy to amuse. I’m sure my hands attacking your hips and sides had nothing to do with it, right? Now how about some more jokes huh? I got all the time in the world!

tbh romanian grandmas always got some shit to say. like last week we were skyping our grandparents and my dad showed my grandma these kids playing in the street, explaining that they had moved recently from syria. at that, my grandma went all "be careful, you don't know what they'll do.". obviously my dad rolled his eyes and said "they're not like that" to which my grandma goes "yeah this one and that one blah blah. they're all from the same place, they're all the same." ??? grandma stop smh :/

I have to go through 3 hours of why buses are dangerous and I should finally get my driver’s license (because it is a shame for the granddaughter of the man who taught hundreds of men how to drive to not drive) every single time I visit my grandparents. I guess each old person has his/her… issues.
And let’s not mention politics or stuff like lgtb rights or buying noodles/vermicelli instead of making them.

Double Standards In Sherlock

My favorite thing is how people villainize Mary Morstan in the captions of (my) gifsets for being a liar as if she is this lone bad egg in a sea of good eggs. Well,  I love to break it to you, THIS SHOW IS BURSTING IT’S BRIM WITH LIARS.

Sherlock lies about almost everything and when he doesn’t tell a direct lie, he represses either to protect himself or others. Yet when Mary does this she is the devil for hiding, when Sherlock does this he’s a “a lil smol bby in love with *insert character name here*”

 John lies to himself all the time. Lies about he hates Sherlock, how he doesn’t miss the war, doesn’t miss solving crimes with his best friend. Yet one of the criticisms I often see written about Mary is that she’s just pretending. Right cos no one in this show ever pretends.

People lie for themselves and each other all the time in this show. Molly lied for Sherlock for two years (which would have involved lying to John too) but I don’t see anyone calling her the devil. Watch The Reichenbach Fall. In hindsight that entire episode is a lie. I think there is only two or three scenes in that entire episode that don’t have at least one person lying in them. But yeah, only call Mary out for being manipulative, sure.

Speaking of manipulation, this brings me to my next (and personal favorite) double standard. I’ve seen this added to captions of my gifsets as well as those of my friends gifsets and I piss myself laughing whenever I see it. People think Irene Adler is pure evil and hated by all because she manipulated Sherlock into loving her so she could use him to screw the government and protect herself.

Oddly enough, I don’t at all dispute that is (in part) what happened, I just dislike people hating her for this when Sherlock Holmes proposed Marriage to a woman to break into an office so he could get info on a man he eventually kills in cold blood to save his friends. Not to mention, in Hounds, John was perfectly okay with dating a woman because Sherlock told him to get info on Henry. But sure, let’s drag Irene and Mary for supposedly pretending to love men. Wow. So evil. No one does this ever. *yawns*

You know what Sherlock also did? Killed people with a flippin sword to protect Irene Adler which is oh so heroic when he kills people to protect people he cares about. But when Mary non fatally shoots Sherlock to protect herself and John (she even calls an ambulance for him!) she is Moriarty, the devil, etc etc

Last but not least, there is my darling Sally Donovan. Hated by many for being an asshole insensitive to the emotions of others. Yeah, cos it’s not like we’ve seen whole montages of Sherlock behaving this exact way towards clients.

Look, everyone has a right to hate what they hate and love what they love. All I’m saying is maybe you need to reflect on your internalized misogyny a little bit if your reasons for hating a female character are the same traits for which you love your male characters AND, if you’re going to besmirch one character for being a liar, you can’t let all the other liars off scott free. But honestly, it’s better to practice common decency and allow people the occasional mistake because they’re humans not Gods. 

I feel like tumblr either puts way too high of standards on celebrities or just likes finding he smallest reasons they’re terrible people.

They say something “wrong” or do something that you all think is some terrible sin (which it’s usually far from it) and tumblr jumps all over their asses, at times bullying them to the point where they delete their social media accounts cause they did something in a film that tumblr fans didn’t like.

Leave them be and stop with all these “you can’t like them cause of this or that” or “they said ‘blah blah blah’” and you make them out to be the scum of the earth. You are no better (sometimes worse) than them. They are human, they have feelings, and just because their lives are more publicized (which they don’t even want) doesn’t give you the right to give them all the shit you do.

CELEBRITIES ARE NOT PERFECT. DO NOT PUT THEM ON A PEDESTAL.

Theo James imagine

Anonymous

It was the happiest day of my life until she showed up. Theo and I had the perfect wedding and what was the perfect reception. Everything , including me, looked perfect and no paparazzi came to ruin it.

But just as Theo and I ended our fist dance one of his psycho exs came through the door throwing a fit.

For a second he stood there jaw dropped. I was ready to cry and yell all at once.

“Theo James! How can you marry this girl?!” His ex yelled, “after all we’ve been through, she isn’t even pretty ?” Blah blah blah that’s all I heard basically.

By that point Theo had snapped out of it. “Listen, you need to leave right now… We’ve been apart for like three years, time to move on.” When she didn’t leave he tried again, “but if you really cared you would leave and not cause a scene on my wedding day…”

At that point I stepped in, “listen, honey, it’s too late, we’re already married. It’s a done deal, he doesn’t love you okay? So leave. Go ruin someone else’s day because you aren’t ruining mine.”

I apparently stunned her into leaving because she stood there opening and closing her mouth like a fish before finally turning to leave.

Theo came up and hugged me, “so sorry baby.”

“It doesn’t matter, I have you and she left. Let’s enjoy the rest of our day.”

“Deal,” he bent down to kiss me and everyone cheered.

hey all,

I just wanted to make a quick apology (to you guys and especially to my @imagineclaireandjamie sisters) about not writing much – natch, not writing anything – in a long time. To those who have sent me messages over the past couple of days, I know I promised a preview of Three Witches, etc. but I’m unfortunately not going to have anything by then. I’m so stressed right now with job hunting, constantly feeling like I’m unqualified and that maybe I’ve made wrong the decision with my career choice, etc. It’s really demoralizing, and when I’m in that kind of headspace, I just can’t write.

I know this isn’t Three Witches and that it isn’t much, but I did write the very first bit of Chapter 4 of Duet, my reincarnation/soulmate AU. I feel really guilty for not writing, so I figured I’d share it just to show you something. It’s still in its early stages so it’s subject to change (and there will be flashbacks to Jamie after this opening, don’t worry!). For now, just know that Jamie recognizes Claire, but Claire does not recognize Jamie.

Again, sorry for slacking. Hope you enjoy.

Monday

Blah. I don’t know what happened last night but I woke up at 3:30 and I could had sworn I did not sleep after that. My Fitbit shows that I fluid sleep but was restless most of the time. Then I was having weird dreams at the very end, right before I had to get up. The wind was really bad last night and I was thinking of all my old trees in the backyard. Don’t want them to fall especially on the house.

Work has been ok. Many people on the phones are very unhappy about life. Lots of yelling and lots attitude. We got pouring rain so I’m sure that makes people grouchy too.

College started again, last week was our spring break. Andrew went back today in his “new” car. He’s excited about it. The one road that goes to his building had been closed for several months due to construction. They worked all week and they reopened today. Now that he has a car I don’t have to go to pick him up. I had to go al the way around and it was really annoying.

Michael is in Little Rock seeing his doctor hopefully for the last time. His finger is doing much better.

The universe suddenly wants to grant me inspiration for a shit ton of original world OCs. The worst thing is I actually like them all and want to work on everything so right now I look a bit like -
