this is saved on my school laptop too

#optomstudies here with a post about university studying! I’ve been reading many study tips masterposts in the community, but some of these won’t work that well for university. So here are 3 tips for adapting to uni study!

Loose leaf? Notebook? Neither! (but if you must choose between the two, I recommend hole-punched loose leaf - easy to file :D) There is just no time, especially once you get to your higher years, that you will be able to write paper notes especially considering the level of detail that you are required to learn things to get good marks. 

When I was studying therapeutics, lectures were more like an essay crammed into 60-80 ppt slides! Using 10pt Calibri, 1.15 spacing, custom 1cm margins - I still had 12 pages for a 2 hour lecture (see below)

Two lectures / week, for 12 weeks! Although this was the most-content heavy subject, my other courses were still way too time consuming to write notes for. Sadly, you can’t summarise much, because MCQs pick at details.  

As for laptops, cheap netbooks are only ~$300, but I’d recommend these really great student laptops

And yet, you have to wonder why #studyblr doesn’t have more digital notes? Isn’t every studyblr the owner of a computer as a tumblr user? I’m trying to encourage everyone to feel more confident about posting their digital notes as part of the “#studyblrs get real” tag (see here), so if you have some great typed study notes, please tag me with #optomstudies and I’ll be happy to reblog you!

Read through your lecture slides so that you have a basic grasp of the topic before classes. If you have any readings assigned, do them too. This means that you’ll

  • go in knowing what concepts you need clarified
  • revise one more time (remember the forgetting curve?)
  • be much better placed to answer questions and participate in class discussions (get those participation marks!! ;))
  • find it easier to follow along with much more complicated topics than you’ve experienced in high school!
  • remember a lot more of the topic when you come back to revise later on!

Yes, I know, studyblr blasphemy right? But this is what you do when strapped for time. Particularly with biological/chemical sciences, lecturers will have basically summarised what you need to know on the slides. 

Before your lectures, read through the slides (should take about 30 minutes for a 2 hour lecture) and mark/circle anything you don’t understand - then when you get to the lecture, jot down a clarification in your own words based on the professor’s explanation. Eventually, you’ll find that you have studied the topic well enough to not need your own footnotes. 

It takes a little experience to know which professors have slides you can study off (tip: it’s usually the ones where you don’t have to write down much) but it’s totally worth the time you save!

170618 // I haven’t made a post like this in a while, but I’m revising for an exam right now and it’s the last thing I want to be doing so I’m procrastinating (don’t follow my lead kids).

How I use Digital Notes

I’ll make a more detailed post about how I study at some point, but for now:

  • I use microsoft onenote, but you can use whatever program you feel comfortable with.
    • Useful features of onenote include the organisation into notebooks, sections, and tabs, search function, equation support, tagging, and formatting options (inc. different heading styles).
    • You can find really great posts about onenote quite easily if you’re interested in how it works (I would 100% recommend it).
  • Throughout the year I type up my class notes, summarising information and organising it into a sensible order.
    • This took a lot of discipline and I fell off the bandwagon quite a bit. I initially intended to type up my notes from the day every evening, but I found it’s more realistic to just do it as often as possible and to aim to finish each topic’s notes before I move onto the next one.
  • When I come to revise for exams I will rewrite and summarise my notes on paper (writing out notes helps me remember them, but this may not work for you)
    • When I’m doing the first few past papers I’ll have my notes with me so I can look things up until I can do a paper without them.
      • I find this is more effective than using the mark scheme to help as the mark scheme basically gives you the answers.

Why Make Digital Notes?

Obviously digital notes don’t work for everyone, but I find they’re much more useful to have than notes on paper, at least before you start revising.

  • The main benefits of digital notes are:
    • typing is faster than writing
    • search functions (depending on the program) to look up information quickly
    • neater and faster formatting
    • you can back them up somewhere else so you don’t have to worry about losing or damaging them
    • you can bring all your notes with you without it weighing a tonne (assuming your laptop/tablet doesn’t weigh a tonne)
    • copy and paste! Ofc use this as infrequently as possible, but it’s useful for quotes etc.
    • pictures without the effort of drawing or printing out and sticking in
    • cheaper as you don’t have to buy pens and paper as often
    • an excuse to bring your computer into school and then go online shopping and play games during really boring classes no I haven’t done this what are you talking about so you have access to google etc. to look things up whenever


  • The only reason I’ve managed to keep up with my notes throughout the year is because I don’t take any for maths and I’ve kind of fallen off the bandwagon for French (whoops). It’s a bit unrealistic to expect to keep up with all the notes for all your subjects (particularly if you’re doing gcses), so prioritise.
  • Subjects like maths tend to assess a skill rather than knowledge, so it’s probably more useful to do practice questions rather than make notes.
  • If you’re dropping a subject in a year and won’t touch it again make sure it’s actually worth making notes for the whole year.

In Class or After Class?

Whether you write notes on the computer during class or afterwards depends on the class.

  • I’ve got one particular teacher who flits back and forth between topics and often mentions things without going into detail because she assumes we’re too stupid to understand (not my favourite teacher ngl). So I use my laptop in her lessons so I can go back to topics we’ve already done and so I can google things to fact check (she frequently dumbs stuff down to inaccurate levels) and expand on points that she makes.
  • If you’ve got a teacher that tends to move super fast it might be worth having a computer with you as typing is generally much faster than writing.
    • If you can’t touch type learning is a really good idea, even just to improve the speed of your typing (I can’t actually touch type but I took a course until I learnt to use all my fingers when typing and now I type much faster). There’s lots of free online courses available.
  • Alternatively, you can just make all your class notes on paper and type up the important information when you get home.
    • This means you don’t have to worry about your class notes being neat enough to revise from; after you type them up you can file them or even throw them away to save space.
    • It also works as a review which is really good for putting the information into your long-term memory.
    • However it is also pretty time consuming so you’ve got to be super disciplined to keep on top of it.
  • In my school at a levels I’ve found it’s not too unusual to have a laptop out but it’s a bit odd to have one at gcses (idk about other schools). Obviously you shouldn’t care about what other people think, but if having your laptop/tablet with you will make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable then leave it at home.
    • Also laptops and tablets are expensive and it’s understandable if you’d rather keep them safe at home.
    • That said, people do get used to it. Even if you’re the only one with a laptop/tablet, the novelty wears off quickly.
  • Some teachers don’t actually like students using laptops and tablets during class, so do check before you bring it in.

I hope this helped! Of course if you have any questions about this (or anything else) my ask is always open please ask me something

Jughead Jones x Reader

Warnings: angst. or at least ‘want to be angst.’

A/N: This is my first writing piece in a while. Bare with it.

Requested: No

Jughead Jones had been my best friend since the third grade. Him, Archie and I always hung around each other. It was the sixth grade dance when I finally felt something for Jug.

My heart had been broken earlier that day by Reggie, who rejected my request to attend the dance with him. Oh, how I cried. I cried so much on Jug’s shoulder, until he finally asked me himself. So we went. And we danced. But then at the end of the night, this… tingly feeling formed in my stomach. And it wouldn’t go away.

The summer before sophomore year is when our friendship took a toll. Archie had cancelled on our road trip, and Jason Blossom was murdered. Jughead wouldn’t leave his laptop, too busy writing about the summer. We just sort of… grew apart.

My feelings for him didn’t go away, although. As much as I wanted to be mad at him, I couldn’t. I loved him.

So here we are, the first day of school. I walk through the halls for the first time without Archie or Jug. But as I walk, I notice him. He stands by my locker. He just looks like he’s waiting for me. – Which, I assumed he was.

“(Y/N),” He started, but I held my hand up in front of him. “Save it, Jughead.” I told him, putting in my combination and opening my locker.

I grab all my needed books, before he shuts my locker for me. “I’m writing a novel on Jason Blossom’s death.” He quickly told me. 

“Is that the reason you ignored me all summer?” I asked, looking into his brown eyes. Oh, how I loved those brown eyes.

No. I mean – Yes – I mean, –” I scoffed as he stammered out his words. He paused for a minute, before answering my question. “No, that was not the reason I ignored you this summer.” He said.

“Then why? It broke my heart whenever I texted and you didn’t respond, or when I came over and your mom had to lie and say you weren’t home when your bedroom light was on!” I exclaimed. “You don’t just get to waltz in and out of my when you feel like it, Jughead! I have feelings too!”

He looked at me with remorse  and regret. 

I felt tears brim my eyes, as the five minute bell rang. 

“You know, Jughead, for the past five years, I’ve dealt with your sardonic humor, and your sarcasm, and your anti-social life, but I won’t deal with you ignoring me for no reason.” I stated, “I even dealt with you not loving me back! You didn’t even notice after various hints and clues that I loved you!” Tears now streaming down my face, I had to leave.


“No. Not today Jughead. Not anymore.” I said turning my back on him. “This friendship. It’s over.”

But as I turned to walk to my first class, I didn’t hear the slight mumble under his breath.

I love you too.”

Hello, Emma. I love your useful posts and beautiful photos. My school essentials is too many and heavy. The laptop, books, drink bottle, and so on. What do you bring a bag to university? I want to know what in your bag. Thank you. (My English is not better, sorry.)

Hi! Thank you so much. Here are the things I take:

  • my laptop (13″ MacBook Pro)
  • my arc notebook
  • my textbooks (if I really need them or don’t have them on my laptop - I usually have them on my computer so it does make it much easier for me to save space)
  • pencil case - a mechanical pencil, coloured pens (staedtler 432 pens are fab), highlighters (stabilo swing cool highlighters are pretty good!), post it notes are a life saver (I usually have them stuck into my notebook though)
  • some form of a planner - either a bullet journal, agenda, or a digital version (saves you taking one)
  • lunch/snacks and water
  • bit and bobs - tissues, plasters/band aid, hand sanitiser, spare hair bobble, ICOP bag (incase of period bag - it’s very handy to have if you’re caught short or need to help out another person!), lip balm and possible touch-up make up!

Hope that helps! x

anonymous asked:

Hello there, welcome to mysme hell! I wanted to request something like MC is a K-pop star or smth but if you don't want to you don't have to! ^^

A/N: Thanks for your request! I honestly have very little knowledge of the kpop genre, and so most of this information is based off of personal research! I decide to just do the RFA here too, as it wasn’t specified :) ~ mod rosa

Edit : Sorry as well for this being super late; my laptop broke down and this was saved on it :/


- His music taste doesn’t extend past game soundtracks, really

- So when the girl who sits next to him in his biology class asks him if he’s heard of the new up and coming girl group, he shakes his head

- bitch he doesn’t even leave his house except for school do you think he has

- She excitedly pulls out her phone and shows him the MV for the current popular song he’s heard in the background of a few places, and he watches as you walk onscreen, backing up the leader and main voice.

- And you’re good? Like, really good

- the short dress you’re wearing doesn’t help

- He probably spends the entire class thinking ‘Oh god I’m dating a kpop star, what do I do now’

- As soon as he’s out of class he probably calls you

- ‘MC?’

- 'Yea?’

- 'Isittruethatyou'rereallyakpopstarwhydidn'tyoutellme’

- 'Yoosung I have no idea what you just said’

- He thinks it’s cool though, he enjoys watching your practices though. He comes to almost all of them, and loves watching your shows when your group gets bigger

- The rest of you group likes him as well; they got an explanation from you finally after they saw you continuously diving towards your phone in a practice ;) They’re happy with him and you fit together; his personality sets off yours really well! according to your Lead Rapper.


- He’s probably heard your group sing before, but does he look like he has time to watch videos? He probably actually enjoys kpop music and the concept of the genre, but doesn’t listen to it much.

- t’s most likely that he met your group when you decided to introduce them to him; they’d probably be a bit wary of him at first, considering his front most personality traits and whatever the gossip magazines have said, but they’d warm up to him.

- 'Zen they don’t bite’

- 'But what if they do’

- 'They won’t’

- He’d be one to make you sing along with him either whenever one of your groups songs came on the radio or whenever he’s practicing for a musical.

- tabloid power couple

- Would come to as many of your shows as possible, and wait backstage for you

- 'Zen, I can get you the best seats’

- ‘I’m fine here’ as he sits in the worlds smallest chair backstage

- 'zEN’

- Your leader has this ongoing petty spat with him about the differences between musicals and pop music

- you think it’s cute

- Overall, he really likes what you do, and is super supportive of you. If you have to miss something because of practice, that’s cool, he totally understands!! He’s used to crazy schedules for his acting and stuff like that too. The tabloids probably eat you two up, and in interviews, you probably get a few questions about him as well!


- With her work, she probably didn’t have much of a personal taste in music, and probably didn’t have much of an idea of what kpop was; she’d probably heard it before in a shop or on the radio, but never personally?

- You’d most likely tell her if you couldn’t make a date or something along those lines because you have practice, and explain about your group

- She’s one to research literally everything she can about the genre, so she can chat with you about it.

- Super supportive and understanding of how hard you work, and that sometimes you just want to sleep and blob around on an off day. She’d quite happily lie on the couch with you all morning, if you both had a day off, on a rare occasion.

- She meets your group around a week or so after you first tell her; they warm up to her after a while, and her memorizing their coffee orders and bringing them to practice for them doesn’t hurt either.

- I could see her as getting into the kpop genre as a fan, and actually starting to really enjoy watching your group along with others; you’re still her #1 bias though


- Most likely he would meet them if you invited them to the party; neglecting to inform him that you yourself were a part of the group.

- 'MC where are you going?’

- 'I’m going to say hi to my friends! The group over there!’

- 'Isn’t that one of those pop groups? Why would you be associated with them?’

- ’Jumin I’m a part of the group’

- You better believe he’ll do everything in his power to get your group bigger and noticed but better producers; he’d probably talk you up to business partners.

- If you’re traveling for shows, if and when you get bigger, he’d probably send half of his bodyguard force along with you, so you’d have the guards at the venues, plus a private bodyguard force moving around with your group.

- Likes to spoil you when you’ve had a chart-topper or a good press conference; not only you, but probably your whole group.

- I could see him taking your group to dinner or buying them all something pricey.

- With his frontal personality, I could see the group being frosty around him at first, but after seeing how he looks after you, they’d warm up. I could see your leader being perpetually wary of him, especially if you were in a downer mood.


- He obviously knows, bcs of that goddamn background check

- He’s probably been shooting hints in the messenger this whole time; you know full well what he’s doing, but you decide to wait to tell the rest, because your enjoying having normal conversations with other people than your group.

- *hey guys have you seen this super cool kpop group

- *seven stop

- *never

- He actually enjoys the kpop genre? Probably a fan of poppy music and stuff, so before he actually knew you, he may have heard one of your groups songs when you were first starting out!

- Low key hacks into the security cameras if you’re away on a tour and he can’t make it to watch the shows.

- 'Saeyoung you can’t just do that’

- 'Yes I can’

- He loves it though, especially your costumes

- Your group probably warmed up to him rather quickly, as he sorta seemed to have a shared interest with each of them? he totally didn’t do background checks in their website history to see what they liked

- Meme team galore with your lead rapper; you regret ever introducing them

Preference #6: Makeup Sex - Part 4 (Harry)

“You really won’t come along?”

You glance up to see Harry’s tall frame slouched in the doorframe, cute pout prominent on his handsome face. Biting your lips to hide your smile, you put your focus back to your computer screen, where you’re close to completing the eighth page of your big research paper that’s due in three days.

“I can’t. You know I would if I could, but I have to-”

Finish your paper, I know,” Harry drawls in a mocking whine, flopping dramatically across the bed right at your feet, lying on his side with his head propped up on one large fist. You scowl at the papers that he sends scattering, shuffling them back into some kind of working order and carefully avoiding his wide, imploring eyes. It isn’t as if you don’t want to go with him to Niall’s place for some good old fashioned game watching, beer swilling fun, in fact you want to go everywhere with him now that he’s finally home with you, but until you turn this paper in and stop having nightmares about it you can’t glue yourself to Harry’s side like you want to.

“Don’t you want to go hang out with your guy friends?” You try a different tactic amongst revising the last sentence that you just typed. “If I went I’d throw off the balance of testosterone.”

“Are you joking?” Harry sounds positively appalled at your words, giving you a deeply incredulous look. “I’m surrounded by those knobheads 10 months out of the year, if I have to see Niall’s arse one more time I think I’ll lose it.” He waits until you’re done laughing to continue, lightly tickling the sole of your foot to wring a few more giggles out of you. “You’re always fun to be around, baby, and the guys think so too.” Harry crawls his way closer to you until he’s sprawled on his belly close your right side. From there you can’t hide behind your laptop screen and pretend you don’t see him playing the cute card to persuade you. “I don’t wanna go without you.” His lips press tenderly to your arm, his hand wrapping warmly around yours, and you can’t help but meet his honest eyes. “I missed you so much while I was away. I just wanna be near you, all the time.”

Well, fuck.

Oh my gosh, its Sunday and I finally found time (like really really hard you know ?) between studies & family and whatsoever. Okay enough with me finding time for ya all cause its worth it (cause I really love everyone of you)

Okay lets start from this morning, after a week of homework, studies and blah blah. I decided to pamper myself cause my hardwork for the whole week, you guys really should do that ;), and I went to Facebook. I was swiping down and saw plenty (not one/ two) complains about 2016 is killing them (and by them is my friends, juniors, seniors &etc etc). I was so so shocked cause its only a week, and so far I was having a blast. And I thought about you guys, maybe some of you all having 2016 murdering you so I decided to help (and to apologize not being active this week) you guys 😘

Seriously please yes. Its only a week of 2016 ! God sake buy it ! Its worth it ! Last year I was a total slob (BOO) so this year I bought myself a trusty book and wrote down everyday my goals, my plans , homework I have & etc etc. And it really really helped me. If anyone out there is shy or whatever to take your planner out, hey! Its your book! You should be proud of yourself making an attempt to be organized and not to be embrassed ! My planner is quite thick but I am not shy about it. I swear nobody is whispering/gossiping you with your planner. Pinky promise.

This help like so so much af. Sometimes when you wake up late and in a rush to go to school, it seriously helps if you packed your bag the night before ! Make it as a habit !!

Yes af ! If you know you are gonna go cuckoo over some app/tv show then set a rule like “I am not going to touch my phone unless I am done with xxx” if that doesn’t work, download some blocking sites/ apps then (which I will recomand down below)

I dont know about you but this year I am aiming to save money for a laptop (yes af) so this helps if you really want something and your parents says no or you just set a goal to save more money. I would bring lunch to school, I wont buy things I dont need so yea. I also made a jar to put my savings and stick cute motivational label to keep me motivated. You could use a notebook/app to record your expenses too.

Like because you EARN it ! Dont think you are not worthy enough to get some love from yourself ! ;) I always choose to read, cook something or just eat chocolate and listen to my bae song. :)) its up to you though

Music is the door to the soul (is it ? To me yes !!) When you feel stress or anything that makes you feel down, blare the music, ignore about everyone (though I suggest doing this in your room), and just dance. Just dance out till you drop laughing over your moves :) that is the best feeling ever.

Yes pleasee !! Its awesome to write down your feelings like sharing your feelings to a book (ahem) and reading it again at the end of the year. Best feeling too af.

If your lazy to write but still want to “write” your memories down, friends use your gadgets to take everything you like to remember ! I always keep a folder just for the pictures *sigh memories*

Oh that. I’ll teach you. This is actually a feeling (called self-sufficiency) when you get small lil'things and you will feel eternal grateful. This seriously improve your life & mood :) it may take time to cultivate self-sufficiency but It is totally worth it ♡

Yep really ! In this pressuring world we have there its is so so important to walk around in the nature. Even though I am busy I will always make free time for Sunday just to go to the park and that is awesome, relaxing.

Know yourself, what makes you motivate. Your family ? Pets ? Supplies ? Food ? Anything would be fine just as it must (MUST) motivate you to get studying. For me its emojis and supplies. Weird I know but they boost my determination to do my work, so it works :)

OMG the most important thing evar (I know I am exaggerating haha) if you dont have fun then trust me , it is going to be a longgg year. So take time to catch up with an old friend , watch a movie etc.

So thats all for my tips (omg I know I wrote plenty but yea) thanks for reading for so long and not give up half way through… now for our gadgets :p

I highly suggesting to have this extension ! I love looking at the beautiful wallpaper they have everyday and it so motivates me so much ♡

YAS ! AF ! OMG ! I always get inspiration from there and it really help life getting more interesting (especially uncreative people like me) its like my source of everything !

This is a game. Go to play store to check it out as I am not really sure how to describe it. Everytime I have something in my mind but couldnt get it out of my head (literally I tried everything) I would play this game to get anything my mind, out of my mind :)

For remembering important events (which I always ended up forgetting OOPS)

Yes I love this app ! Its helped me to focus so so much. And plus when a cafe is far from your house this really helps :)

To learn languages. I love it ! Its like a game but it is actually teaching you umm LANGUAGE ! Best part !!

This is so good I dont even needa explain.
BTW for who that dont know its an app to let you make flash cards on your phone and you could use it on your phone anywhere you go :DD

Like a timer , and it inculdes breaks !

Its saves life (very serious !!)

I dont even needa ♡ it teaches like EVERYTHING !

Cute app to help you focus cause nobody even DARES to kill a cute lil tree ♡

Great app to train your brain according to your brain. Awesome !

The best habit app I have ever downloaded ! It have yoga, meditation and stretching guide like COOL AF !

Calender app (and the best ever I had used)


@masquerabe replied to your post: i saw someone mention this a while ago and i…               

If you have a browser that allows extensions, I recommend uBlock Origin. Saved my (laptops) ass countless of times. There’s more alternatives too, that will permits for more protection. uBlock is basically antivirus for the browsers. :oo   

OH! That’s what I have! I had to go re-check! I had it on my last laptop as well, and everything just crashed. And the websites I only use are Tumblr, Crunchyroll, Facebook, Youtube, my school website for online classes, and my bank account, and other personal accounts. I remember I used to use kissanime and gogoanime and nope…just ruined the whole thing. So I am not sure what??

My school wifi blocks tumblr on mobile but not the fucking laptop. Aha //cries. Random prompt you can do anytime : JiKook in detention

“again?” mr. kim sighed. 

jimin was a scarlet red in his seat. jungkook leaned back, arms behind his head, and propped his feet on the desk in front. “so?” 

“can’t you save your inappropriate behavior for after school?” demanded their teacher. “this is the third time this week you’ve been caught having….public displays of affection in the school closets!” jimin flushed even redder if it was even possible. 

“don’t be a prude, ssaem,” jungkook smirked. “don’t you agree jiminnie’s too cute to keep hands off of?” jimin made a squeaking noise. jungkook paused and frowned. “don’t agree. if you do, i’ll have to cut your fucking hands off.” 

their teacher was almost purple with rage, it was funny. jungkook’s life-sworn mission was to see just how purple he could go. he slid out of his seat and into the one beside jimin, who watched him with curious eyes. 

“hey! jungkook! i said four seats apart!” 

jungkook slid his eyes over to look at their teacher. “detention tomorrow after school too, ssaem?” he grinned devilishly before pulling jimin in for a kiss.

Auuuugh… So the money issue is a bit more serious than I originally thought.

Most of you know my laptop bit the dust back in June. It was a terrible loss and I will mourn it every day, but I didn’t cry too much because a) it was in for repairs, and b) if I needed to buy a new one, HEY! I’M AN ADULT! I CAN SAVE! 

Unfortunately, after two months and a waste of $300, I discovered two things: my laptop could NOT be fixed and I am a terrible excuse for an adult. 

Here’s the bigger problem… 

  1. I am a grad student and my schooling is done exclusively online.
  2. I am also a budding librarian and things are getting more serious. SO SERIOUS, in fact, that I am now the head of a project that consists of building the library for a non-profit organization.
  3. Do I even need to mention the fact that I use a computer to conduct business for commissions?

It’s pretty freaking obvious my life is centered around this glorious contraption. 

My sister was kind enough to lend me her laptop for summer session. But summer session is over and she is going back to school. In less than two weeks I will be without a laptop. I don’t make much money and am nowhere near the amount I need to buy a new one. AND I NEED A NEW ONE RIDICULOUSLY SOON. 


For now, I’ll just make the dolls that you’ve seen from my Ackerman Antics tag. (Levi, Mikasa, Erwin) 

Each doll sells for $20 (+ s/h) and for $3 more, I’ll throw in Izumi with whichever adult you think is responsible enough to care for her. (Erwin seems to think it should be him, but Levi is glaring in his direction right now… so…) 

I still haven’t figured out how to ship internationally. I will get to it SOON! I’m so sorry about that. 

I know this is kind of pricey, and if you’d rather help me with a donation instead (literally any amount counts), I will be forever grateful and will keep you in mind after I get this whole mess sorted out and send you SOMETHING.

If you’d like to go about that route, please send me a message and I will give you the necessary details.

     now that their freshman year of college was over, the dorms were full of 19 year olds who didn’t know what to do with themselves. most likely, the group of four friends was going to find something dumb to pass the summer by. aidan tapped his fingers loudly on his desk, trying to think of something unique to do. his tapping soon turned into a loud drumming, probably trying to wake his friends up from their sleep. madison and lucy were spooning on the bottom bunk (matt’s bunk) while matt lay sprawled out on the couch. “hey.” aidan said, pushing off his desk with his feet so his swivel chair rolled over to the couch. “wake up, you fuck.” he growled, shaking matt’s shoulder as the blonde drooled onto the ugly blue fabric of the couch. he shook some more to no prevail. “hey!” he shouted. 

     "shut up.“ one of the brunettes groaned. aidan had met madison in their film studies class they had together. she was bright, creative too. lucy would often times help her with her short film ideas as they were room mates and both in majors that required at least a sprout of creativity. 

     "matt won’t wake up.” aidan growled, grabbing for the small refrigerator in their room. “i’m trying to make plans for the summer before school gets out next week.” he added, twisting off the cap of a frigid water bottle and pouring it over matt’s head.
