this was for my photo class actually

PART ONE - IPHONE

So this is my first post that isn’t a stupid text post or overly bright photo of my stationary, so I hope you’ll like it! It will consist of two parts, one for the ios apps and one for google chrome extensions. Feel free to send me recommendations!

bolded = favourite, cursive = apps I use every day

Note taking and co

  • Pocket - very useful app to save websites, articles, posts etc and read them offline.           
  • Keynote, Pages, Numbers - basics if you have an apple device. I actually like keynote better than powerpoint c:
  • Notability - Very popular app and it really is worth its money. Great for note taking, especially in class!
  • Evernote - On my phone for over 4 years now. The group feature is so great and I use it for preparing posts
  • Werdsmith - very clean and minimalistic app for writing, I use it mainly for creative writing.
  • Microsoft One Note - Simple app for note taking and making online notebooks.

Languages

  • Leo - a great dictionary in 8 languages. If you log in you can save problem words and make vocabulary lists.
  • Memrise - My favourite app to learn languages for free. I’m learning Japanese with it!                                                              
  • Duolingo learning languages for free is always fun and duolingo is so easy to use, it’s even more fun! I use it to practice my Spanish.

Studying

  • Forest - Who doesn’t know and love forest yet? It’s such a cute application and I use it when I have a long study day/night ahead.
  • Brainscape - My to go app for flashcards. It has a giant library and it’s easy to make your own. Honestly, I’ve been using it for 3 years now and I still love it.
  • Mindly - A very beautiful app to make mind maps. I use it for story ideas and school work.
  • MindNode - also an easy way to make mind maps.
  • Uberchord - learn how to play the guitar for free c: 
  • TheSimpleClub - videos, and tutorials of all important school subjects, mainly in German, I think
  • Notenapp - keep track of your grades - German 
  • Khan Academy - like the simple club but with a broader spectrum and in English.
  • Tide - promodoro app with nice background sounds & inspirational quotes 
  • Swifty - learn how to code in a very fun and simple way! 
  • Flow timer - another great promodoro timer (they are everywhere). I like the minimalistic look and nice colours.

Inspiration & Motivation

  • Vantage - Simple but beautiful designed calendar
  • Calm - Helps me calm down with breathing exercises backgrounds and sounds.
  • Elevate - games and exercises that help to keep your mind fit 
  • Pacifica - an app that helps with anxiety and mental disorders with a very kind community
  • TED Inspiring, interesting and motivating videos on a wide variety of topics.

Others

  • Textgrabber & Scanner Pro -  Essentials. Scans photos and grabs texts of pdf and other documents and converts them into word/text documents.
  • Sleeptown - From the makers of forest a very cute app that helps you keep a healthy sleep schedule. I try to use it but I forget it often, sadly. 
  • Tydlig - not free but honestly the best calculator you can have on your phone! Beautiful and simple it makes math so much more fun!
  • Spark - organizes your emails (even from multiple accounts) and notifies you if something important comes in. Very neat design.
  • Moon - cute app that shows the phases of the moon depending on the date.
  • Plant Nanny - keep track of your water intake by watering cute plants (they have something similar for walking and keeping track of expenses!)

I’m actually super happy with how this spread turned out! I’ve decided to try using more photos in my bujo, and I’m loving it

School starts tomorrow, and I’ve been strangely at peace with it. I’ve only freaked out a bit, which is definitely a success!! I’m actually kind of excited for some of my classes :)

A Performing Arts High School
  • Everyone makes fun of the Dance Majors because they all wear athletic clothes, and all kinda waddle.
  • The main campus monitor is a fat man that just drives around on his cart all day, yelling things at people. Not even angry things. Just things about Celine Dion and diets that are strictly bread.
  • The vice principle once had a conversation with me about sissy websites. I told him he should dress up and wear a tutu. He laughed.
  • Everything is always broken. There’s always something broken. Always.
  • The school is in the downtown area, and there are a LOT of homeless people around. Once a homeless man walked into the VD2 class and just yelled.
  • One homeless man killed himself on campus before school. School still went on that day, though.
  • The school has a sleepcam account, and an account dedicated to one of the pigeons that stay on campus. His name is Chad.
  • Everyone hates the band majors.
  • My art teacher asked our class to bring her dead birds, and like 3 people did.
  • There were like, 3 fires in one day. Fuckin theater tech majors, man.
  • There are a bunch of levels of basements to the main theater. A kid was rumored to have lost his hand at the bottom.
  • A kid was rumored to have died from falling from the catwalk in that same theater, actually.
  • The photo teacher doesn’t give a shit. About anything. She lets us roam campus all period as long as we tell her we’re shooting for a project.
  • Once during photo, me and my friend found some of the tech majors destroying a wooden end table with a hammer. Their eyes were glazed over. They let us hit the wooden end table, too. Fuckin tech majors, man.
  • No one questions the printed out pictures of Robbie Rotten in the hallways. 
  • Once there was a fleshlight in the Fraiser building’s boy’s restroom. I didn’t realize till I peed on it. People took selfies with it.
  • All of the art majors are dead inside, some of them are on a lot of drugs, too.
  • Once someone broke a toilet off the floor in the girl’s art bathroom. 
  • Everyone thinks the jazz majors are all on drugs. 
  • Under the gym by the field is where a lot of the emos gather at lunch. It’s called the emo canopy.
  • Other schools in the city call our school LV-Gay instead of LVA. There are so many gays, yet no one stable enough to actually date.
  • There was a boy in the Ballroom one class that would just, stop every 15 minutes or so and do 10 push-ups. Every day. Without fail.
  • All of the film majors are horny. All the time.
  • No one knows what’s going on, ever.
How to study effectively
  • Set yourself achievable goals.
    Never try to fool yourself into thinking you will read 10 chapters every day, run at least 5 miles, clean the whole house and manage 1 huge assignment in 1 hour.
    This won’t work, you know that and you’re just fooling yourself.
    Be realistic. Read 1 chapter, but actually read it, not highlight every word there. Read it again, make a summary of it, close the book, explain the material to somebody else or just write it down in bullet points. Do a 20 minute work out. Clean your table. Write 500 words of that 2k essay (or write 100 words, or 50, hovewer much you can actually write)\
  • Take breaks frequently, but not longer than 20 minutes.
    I am a big fan of pomodoro technique when studying because it gives me a sense of a timeline that doesn’t allow to check on my phone, on my email- anything. Once you decide to ‘i’ll rest for a bit’ that bit turns out to be 5 hours on tumblr and bam - you’re not sleeping at night because your deadline is due. 
    Set a timer for yourself. 25 minutes of reading, 5 minutes break. After 3 cicles make a big 15 minutes break. After another 3 cicles take half an hour. Set yourself the exact amount of time  you will work, and the exact amount of time you will rest. 
  • Turn off your Tumblr/Twitter/Youtube.
    No explanation necessary
  • Understand what you’re reading.
    I can’t stress enough about this one, because in my 4 years of studying in med school i realized just how many people try to memorize exactly what is written instead of understanding the concept.
    Listen, your memory will fail you. You’re not a perfect database that can reach for any data file that you need any time. People forget  things, this is how our brains operate. 
    Logic will never fail you. This is so important to understand to all of you in medicine, that if you understand the basic you can always draw conclusions from that.
    For example, it is no problem for me to answer the question like ‘Clinical manifestation of pneumonia’ because i understand the pathogenesis, and just draw logical conclusion. This is what clinical thinking is based upon, basically
  • Don’t do things just because everybody do them.
    Make notes for yourself, not for a pretty tumblr post. I used to spend a lot of time and money on those but they were less effective than messier quicker not very photo ready notes that i made, but those were actually more helpful.
    Notes are here to help you, not to make an appearance of studying.
    A lot of my classmates spend hours taking notes but once they come to class it’s like they just mechanically copied the textbook without actually realizing what they wrote. Which is why my point of understanding what you study is important in note taking, notes are just a quick summary you can go back to, some details you might have troubles remembering, they are helping you revise not read from when you are asked a question. 

It’s the adorable Czar of Halloween: Jack from Animal Crossing! ^_^

I wanted to practice the watercolor techniques I’ve been struggling with in class, and doing a watercolor version of the colored pencil doodle I did of Jack last October seemed like a perfect way! :D I’m super excited because doing this made everything finally click, and when I showed it to my teacher he was really happy about how much improvement I’ve made! :D

Also this is the first time I actually liked the scan better than the photo. :O Even though the colors are off, they’re off in a way that makes the piece look more Halloween-like. :P

6 May 2017 || ig || May Study Challenge 

Day 6: How much of your stationery and study materials travel with you to class? How much is left at your study space?

This is a photo of my pencil case. I actually don’t need that many pens and pencils etc in class, but I take them with me in case I have a spare minute to work on my bullet journal or to rewrite my notes. Other than that, I have a spiral A4 notebook for class notes and folders for my English classes. Everything else (textbooks, other pens and pencils, rewritten notes, graded exercises etc) stays at home.

University Advice: How to Make Friends

1. It’s ok if your room/flatmates aren’t your bffs. Out of my first flat 2/6 of them are still my friends and we’re not close at all.

2. Talk to everyone. Some people say this is only acceptable in the first two/three weeks but I’m halfway through and I still talk to loads of new people PRO TIP: the girls bathroom is actually such a nice place to do this

3. Get people to add themselves on your facebook/in your contacts if you click. If they add themselves it’s not a problem if you’ve forgotten their name. Also if they add themselves to your contacts get them to take a photo.

4. Actually talk to these people that you like. Message them, organise meals out/club nights/movie nights/throw a party.

5. Obligatory tip about joining societies even though I have never done this.

6. Practical classes are a really good way to meet people/friends. I can’t speak for every subject but in biosciences we do a lot of waiting around.

7. Hang out with your friends and their friends. I’ve just been invited to a Disney house party (ngl my dream) by someone I met through a few of my friends. One of my close friends was a friend of my flatmate.

8. Jobs are great ways to meet people. I always have fun when I’m working for my uni with the people I work with and the girls I’m working with next summer are already tight on the group chat. We’ve made Disney channel puns.

9. Group chats are wonderful. Add groups of friends so y’all can all talk - it takes away the intensity of a one to one.

10. “But I’m an introvert! I can’t do these!” Ok firstly, I am also an introvert. I spend a lot of time by myself. Just because you are an introvert doesn’t mean you can’t meet people easily. It’ll only be awkward if you believe it’ll be awkward. Approaching meeting people with an attitude of “I’m an introvert I can’t do this” isn’t going to help.

11. Baking things is always nice and is a good icebreaker. Brownies are magical. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

12. Don’t feel like you have to drink (alcohol) at parties in order to make friends.

13. Nice gestures go such a long way.

14. Don’t stress about this. It’ll happen. You don’t need to grab onto everyone you meet in the first few weeks.

jadethirlwall: someone’s wig literally and metaphorically flew off in reaction to our show tonight in Sydney. I’m not actually sure if you wanted it back but I got excited so I’ve kept it and plan on bringing her with me on tour to create memories like you used to at school with the class teddy bear on your hols. Thank you @iamblakenicholfor your delightful lace front. I’m open to name suggestions for her if anyone’s got ideas? Here’s a selection of photos of me enjoying the wig. #wigsnatched #byewig#isnatchedaweaveandilikedit

Reader and Hvitserk are friends with benefits and they are both alright with that, but things will start to change when Ivar moves in with them.

Warning: cursing


˝No. I was just a kid back then. I stopped liking her when she left with you. Honestly, I didn’t even think about her since I saw her a few minutes ago.˝
˝So you are alright with sharing the apartment with us?˝ Ivar nodded his head with a forced smile on his face. ˝Okay. I still haven’t talked to her, but she will be alright. I’m sure that she will scream when she finds out that I’ll have to move into her room, but…˝ He paused dramatically. ˝…she’ll definitely be alright.˝

I decided to also make a post specifically for the fic that I wrote for the @potterdirectionficexchange a while ago! It’s called ‘Keep Your Hands Up, So I Can See, and was written for Cherrie on AO3. 


Summary: 

Harry’s eyes seemed drawn to whatever movement Louis made, so he dipped his quill into the ink harshly, before boldly punctuating his final sentence.

“I know it’s hard for you to not think about me and my broomstick, but you better focus on your schoolwork Styles. Last time I heard, you were flunking Potions.”

Louis hadn’t heard anything, but he was quite certain that Harry hadn’t made it into the Advanced class, even though everyone and their parents knew he wanted to become an Auror – for which he’d need excellent potions skills. He figured it’d do the trick.


Or, the AU where Louis is the golden Slytherin Seeker, with Jesy and Perrie as both teammates as well as his BFFS, and Harry is the Hufflepuff Seeker - aka Louis’ arch nemesis, or is he?

anonymous asked:

How do people have the time to decorate class notes? Is it done after class or are studyblrs just super quick?? Give me the secrets!

ROFL okay firstly, I’ll let you know my stance before telling you how to do it. 

I know how those studyblrs do it, but I personally don’t do it myself because I know it’s a waste of time - why does decorating something affect how efficiently and effectively you can learn something? Colour coding and segmentation is effective, don’t get me wrong, but going as far as to “decorate” your notes with pretty drawings… Saying that “it motivates me to study” and stuff is all an excuse to waste time feeling like you’re doing something productive tbh I know this because I’ve done it once when I was younger lol 

There are plenty of ways to motivate yourself to study that don’t include brush lettering and drawing pictures, and most of the time, good study habits just involve discipline at its core

Yeah decorating is nice, but admit it, it’s time consuming and inefficient, and doesn’t work at a higher education/university level (maybe only if you’re taking a low course load or first year - otherwise you’ll sacrifice valuable time that can give you a high distinction/distinction grade). 

But of course I’ve read numerous answers to this by those studyblrs themselves. I don’t mind telling you how they actually do it; it’s your choice whether to use that poison or not. 


Firstly: doing notes after class

The vast majority of those studyblrs (when asked) usually reply “oh those aren’t my class notes, I rewrite them after class”. What they do is that they note take in two ways:

  1. Take normal dot points, but leaving spaces for decoration - they then go home and highlight, brush letter, draw pictures, etc. to make notes attractive and take a photo for their studyblr. 
  2. Write really messily and quickly to get the information down - then go home and rewrite everything, switching pen colours and highlighting as they go, line-by-line. 

Obviously the more effective one is the first one. 

Secondly: just “super quick”

These few people will bring their brush lettering kit or whatever art supplies they need to class (and usually have a massive pencil case as a result). They will usually be proficient with brush lettering/drawing already or are the kids who do arts as hobbies. 

They can brush letter as quickly as they write, so it’s no big deal for them to do only the heading in brush lettering, then proceed to note take as normal, and then do any highlighting, underlining, etc. when the teacher pauses speaking. This way is significantly less effort, so if you’re looking for pretty looking notes, this is more effective, but you need to have some decorating skills on the fly, that kind of thing. 

Decorating notes isn’t for everyone - some people have a lot of other commitments in addition to school, and so don’t have the time for this - think carefully about whether it works for you. And just a last reminder that it’s not sustainable at a university level, particularly in higher years, and especially if you still want distinction/high distinction results. 

Hope that helps! ^_^

Chocobros with their s/o in a photo booth

Ever since I saw this print I’ve wanted to write a little drabble of the bros with their s/o in those purikura/photo booths! ^^ I haven’t been able to write this much cuz of summer classes, but since today was my last day I class I had time to write this! 

To be honest you kinda have to drag Noct into the photo booth yourself. Not that he doesn’t want to though, the occasional photo by Prompto is fine, but especially taking photos with you he gets super nervous and shy (this poor baby). He’s not he most photogenic, and he head is running a mile a minute with thoughts like “where do I put my hands!?” “ugh why is she so cute posing??” and “aaahhh what do I dooo?!” You guys might actually get a lot of pictures of him looking like a dork or just staring at you in awe and adoration, which you love, but he gets so embarrassed over. Part of the reason why he was skeptical on taking photos with you, but you love and cherish them anyway. If the bros ever found or see the photos they would tease him to no end, but seeing you so happy he just might even want to do another one as a re-do.

Prompto, of course is gonna be ecstatic. He especially likes the part where you can decorate the photos with sparkles, and cute stickers! He loves putting chocobo stickers and moogles all over them. He might go a little overboard with them, but he always makes them work out in the end. He’ll do any cute, funny or cool pose with you, and you guys would have a blast! You guys get a lot of photos of you two laughing cuz you were so busy laughing at the poses you were doing to concentrate on the next photo. Once you guys get the photos Prompto is gonna want to make a million copies, so he can have the photos everywhere he goes. He’ll have one in his wallet, on the fridge, in his room, you name it, this boy loves you and wants to see your smiling face everyday.

Ignis doesn’t mind taking photos with you, but he always keeps the decorations to a minimum cuz he says it takes away from your natural beauty. He’ll love to do romantic poses with you like kisses, hugs, and nuzzles. He totally goes in to lovey-dovey mode when he sees how much you love taking photos with him. He gets embarrassed if the bros ever see your photos together, cuz they get so shocked at the loving look in his eyes. Later on he’ll start to like taking pictures with you in the photo booth, and he’ll even start a scrap book of all the photos you guys take. It’s your guys favorite thing to do when your bored; looking at all the photos you’ve taken together and wanting to take more!

Gladio same with Iggy he doesn’t mind taking photos with you if you really want to. He just wants you to be happy and he thinks you’re so cute when you’re excited. In one of the poses he might try to surprise you by carrying you! Most of the poses involve him doing something surprising, like a surprise kiss, tickling, and carrying you like a princess, so all your photos have your genuine reaction and smile to his antics. He’ll leave most of the decorating of the pictures to you, but he’ll watch if you try to make him look cute. He doesn’t want any of the bros seeing him with a pink bow on his head, but if you beg him enough he’ll give in. Even though he’ll let you keep the photo, he always smiles when he sees it in your room, and maybe asks for a copy so he can keep one for himself too!

Or better yet, why do I LOVE her?

SORRY THIS WILL BE LONG, ORZ. 

Let me bring you way back into my childhood.
And I apologize because whenever people ask me this in person, I normally just say “BECAUSE SHE IS AMAZING, OK?”
and have never really told people the real reason why I love her so much, so I guess this is the perfect time to do it?

SO LET ME MAKE ONE THING CLEAR.

I USED TO NOT CARE ABOUT SAKURA DURING HER GENIN DAYS.
I, myself, was about 12 or 13 during the time, and could care less about her. I was pretty blinded by all the really cool characters like Sasuke, Neji, and Kakashi. Pff. It was normal, I mean, I wasn’t really checking out the female character at the time. I mean…she was okaaaayy. She had pink hair and that was cool, but other than that, her attitude was more humorous then it was awe inspiring. If anything, I was interested with Hinata. She was incredibly cute, from personality to appearance.

During this time, I was heavily bullied. I’ve had paperclips shot at my face, I was teased for having acne (occassionally called pizza face), and also teased because I didn’t shave my legs. Oh, not to mention I was teased for liking anime, and I was the only kid in my class to actually like drawing. (I went to a private school where there was only one graduating class each year). My bullying got so bad to the point that I had tried to commit suicide on countless occassions. I was sent to a therapist who said that nothing was my fault and it was all the bullies (who were literally the whole class). I had no friends, and the friends I did have only liked me so they wouldn’t be in trouble.

I sought solace in manga and anime, and Naruto was one of the first ones I read. I empathized with Naruto and during Sakura’s childhood flashback scenes, I slowly grew to appreciate her more.

Fast Forward and now I am this overweight, depressed, lonely, out of place, teenager. 

Here’s some visual reference. I don’t have many photos of my weight, I never liked to take pictures and when I did I hid in the back. I’m actually pretty embarrassed to put this up, uggghh.

My bullying was no longer in the classrooms, but in my family. I was raised with 9 male cousins, all are incredibly attractive and talented. I have one female cousin and an older sister, and they are often complimented, both are beautiful and mistaken for models a LOT. Then there was me, overweight and unhappy. The most compliments I would ever get was, “You would be so pretty without all the acne”. I used to work in a bakery, and I would get customers who would say things like, “do you wash your face everyday?” or “you have so much acne!”

I was depressed, unmotivated, unhappy, and angry with my life. I hated practically everyone and I hid myself most of the times.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT GOT ME OUT OF IT?


SAKURA FUCKING HARUNO.

I kid you not.
She literally changed my life.
The moment she began her growth, it was an inspiration to me. She did not have a kekkai genkai, she did not come from a high shinobi clan, she was overshadowed by two teammates who had great potential since the beginning, and she was seemingly useless. Then she trained, worked hard, grew, and became the badass she is now.
I use Sakura for a lot of my inspirations. She was literally just a regular girl with nothing out of the ordinary who worked her ass off and became God Tier. I cannot express how much she has changed my life and saved me.

I started working on myself, I started working out and lost 20 almost 30 lbs, my mind is growing healthier from meditation all because this seemingly useless kunoichi character changed her lifestyle which inspired me to do so as well.

I cant really explain to you how I grew to like her in great detail, but I will tell you that I went from ‘whatever’ to 'omfg i am so in love with you girl you are my queen’ during the span of my childhood.

So whenever I see Sakura bashings, I get a bit offended and/or upset because really, if Sakura Haruno never existed, I’m almost scared to see where the hell I would’ve been growing up.

I took some photos from my Instagram because I never really took selfies back then? But because I appreciate my body so much more, and I love my self so much more, I started taking more care of myself. My confidence is a lot higher, my self-esteem is actually there, and…idk, I’m just happy now, and it’s all thanks to the queeen. orz orz. 


Also, if you guys love Sakura Haruno ;o; follow me on my IG!! :DDD Or KIK/LINE ME! Message me for my info *3*

Hey, first of all, i want to say I admire you and you inspire me lots. So, I have problems when it comes to my characters and their features as, in one drawing I'll have them looking good and like they should be, but in the other, it doesn't look like them at all. I think that could be because of my anatomy or my "style". Do you have any tips? That could help improve that

Thank you bby <3

I still struggle with this, but I think I’m figuring it out. Here’s my advice from what I’m learning now:

  • Portrait Studies! I like to gather lots of portraits of different models from fashion blogs and sketch them. Using different faces seems a bit backwards since what we’re struggling with is keeping a consistent appearance for a character, but it has its uses. I guess it lets me see how many small details there are in faces and allows me more control/confidence when creating a face and then being able to recreate it accurately. It clarifies the vague vision of the face I have in my head and my drawing habits are less likely to take over. Here’s a video which is similar to the stuff I’ve been learning in college that helps when drawing from anything. And here’s a link to my fashion tag on my inspiration blog if you want to practice on some faces too :)

  • Stare at your friends(???) Whenever my friends are talking to me I usually just look at different parts of their faces that I want to learn how to draw. It might not necessarily help drawing in that moment as much as sketching would, but it keeps me interested and gives me something to work on when I actually get down to drawing someone.

  • Draw your friends! My class has gotten to the point where we’re comfortable with taking candid photos of each other while we work or hang out and draw each other for our assignments or just personal works. I didn’t have many artist friends as passionate about art so I’m used to doing it by myself. It gets lonely so if you feel me just try take advantage of having friends, even if they aren’t all artists!

  • Loosen up! This one is going to sound a bit odd because I agree that if you are good at something, never do it for free…. BUT from my experience it’s a lot more rewarding to just have fun with things. I’m not saying that you should give away everything you do for free, it’s just there’s nothing wrong with placing more value on the experience you gain from drawing a friend if they ask sometimes. You will get paying customers so there’s no need to fret over a free portrait study. Find the balance between emotional and financial rewards of creating art.

  • Iterative Drawing! I came across one of Sycra’s videos where he explains one of his methods for improving his art. I sometimes struggle to practice this one because it requires owning up to mistakes which takes courage and a lot of self love haha. When it is practiced, it does have amazing results almost instantly. You can apply this to remembering your character’s face and refining it to the point where you’re confident with how they look!

I really hope this helps :) I look forward to seeing where you go with this advice! Remember to be breathe and be patient with yourself <3

Auston Matthews #3 - Tall

Anon asked: since youre also a certified tall person, can you write one abt being tall (like around 6 ft)? matthews preferably. Thank you so much and i love your stuff!!!!

So I guess just a disclaimer of sorts - I do not know the heights of any of the Maple Leafs SOs, for the purpose of this story I am just imagining they are all around 5′7″ or below so there is an apparent height difference. The general plot of this imagine was taken from an personal event in which I was the only girl in a photo in the line of boys. I have gotten much more chill about my height as I have gotten older. Anon I hope you enjoy this! 


Growing up you had always been the tallest in your class, that included out of the boys. It wasn’t so much of an issue when you were in elementary school, it was actually beneficial in some aspects. You were picked first often when everyone was playing sports because your longer legs made you faster than the others. Middle school was a rough patch because that was the time when boys and girls were starting to like each other and no boy liked being the short one in the relationship. High school is when it started to even out again; boys hit their growth spurts and you were no longer the tallest. You learned to use your height to your advantage and when playing sports, it made you almost unbeatable.  

Your boyfriend Auston had three inches on you, so on a normal day all was right in the world. It wasn’t until after he was drafted and invited to yet another fancy charity gala that your insecurities made a reappearance. He needed a new suit and you needed a new dress so to make the whole shopping process more bearable you decided to go together. You tried on dress after dress and none of them sat right on your frame. Either the waist rode too high or the skirt wasn’t long enough and soon you grew frustrated.

The one you were wearing was shorter than you would have even thought to try on but Auston had picked it out so you tried it on anyway. It was supposed to hit just above your knee but instead stopped mid-thigh. There was no way you could sit in this dress without it riding all the way up your leg. You emerged from the dressing room to be met with wolf whistles from your boyfriend.

“Auston I can’t so much as turn without feeling like everything is going to be on display.”

“Well I like it,” he said a little too quickly.
