Hi sorry to bother you but I have a problem! I'm in my first year of college and I'm drowning. I haven't gotten a single A on any of my tests and I actually failed my computer science test. All of my friends are getting As and they're low key judging me for messing up so bad, so many times. I keep saying "this will be my week, I won't procrastinate, I'll revise every day" BUT IT NEVER HAPPENS. Help! How do I get out of this vicious cycle?

Heyy, you are not bothering at all!! Aww i don’t know if friends should be like that to you. I mean it’s not very nice? 

  • I don’t know, but maybe it can help to start building a habit. Make a list of the things you can do that put you in ‘that study mood’. Mine for example is:
  1. clean your desk
  2. put on some comfortable clothes
  3. make a to do list or a study schedule (I use the extension ‘momentum’ on chrome, it’s sooo lovely)
  4. get your pens, books, notebooks etc
  5. put your phone away, or use the app ‘forest’ (also an extension for google chrome and firefox!) (hmmm, only ios is not free) It prevents you from using/ getting distracted by your phone because the tree will be killed if you leave the app.
  6. play a study playlist or maybe just silence, do what works for you (sometimes i prefer music and sometimes not, it depends on the subject)
  7. get some water or tea (but most of the time to get myself motivated i need coffee)
  8. set a timer (max 2 hours, otherwise you get soooo tired afterwards) 
  9. start :)

  • Maybe for you it’s a good idea to do some mindfulness or meditation before you start? So your mind is all clear and you are more focussed. I use the app ‘breathe’.
  • Just to build the habit, you can use the pomodoro technique. I use ‘moosti’ most of the time. The idea is to set a timer for an amount of time, with pomodoro you use 25 minutes. After that you set another timer for a 5 minute break. You repeat this for 3 other times, but after the fourth ‘25 minutes’ you can have a 20 minute study break. There are also a lot of helpful apps. I just use moosti for the timer, i did the pomodoro technique for a while, but my in experience the 25 minutes are too short. But in the beginning i really liked it, because i was not motivated enough to just sit at my desk for like two hours to study. You can also add up the time. For example on monday you start with 25 minute timers and tuesday 30 minutes, wednesday 35 minutes etc. 
  • Another technique is setting a stopwatch and when you feel distracted you look at the amount of ‘focus’ minutes and try to start from there with adding minutes. 
  • I don’t know if your schedule makes this possible (mine doesn’t) but start everyday at the same time with studying. This also helps by building a habit. 
  • Starting a studyblr can help!! Or just do the 100 days of productivity for yourself and make a sort of habit tracker. Where you can cross of a productive day.

Haha i’m so sorry if this is a bit chaotic :’) But i hope it will help you a bit. If not, please tell me (oh and you can tell me if this is useful ;) ) 

Hmmm and I think that you should not be treated like that by your friends, it’s seriously not what a friend would/ should do. They should help you or at least be supportive and motivate you. I hope they will be nicer to you. And otherwise they don’t deserve you as a friend. 

Just try your best, and believe in yourself. ‘Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.’ <3 xx

Hi! First i have to say i love your metas, the one about the dragons is my favorite ( you totally convinced me that viserion is jons). Can i ask you a question? There is a lot speculation about sansa dying this season. I am worried because she doesnt have any connection to the others or fighting skills, and she isnt one of the main 5. (Arya,bran,tyrion,dany,jon). Can she survive? Thank you for the answer ;)

In the books, I feel confident that Sansa survives the series and is there at the end to help rebuild Winterfell. GRRM has said that the original outline is no longer relevant, and he regularly talks about Sansa when he mentions his main POVs :)

I think there are different ways to fight the War for the Dawn. Some heroes like Bran and Dany are going to be called upon to actively fight the War in a magical context. But a lot of other heroes are going to be called upon just to hold. To quote GRRM’s friend Robert Jordan, “We hold. With everything we have, we hold. We don’t pull back. We don’t try anything clever. We just hold.” If I may steal another Wheel of Time quote, 

“if the Lord Dragon three heads of the dragon attacks Shayol Ghul beyond the curtain of light, we will likely need to seize the valley North and the Riverlands and then hold it for as long as it takes him Bran Stark to battle with the Dark One Euron. I don’t know how long that will take, but it could take hours. Days. Tell me, have you ever had to entrench and fight a protracted, defensive war?”

Humanity doesn’t know it yet, but Westeros is already under siege. (Robert Jordan uses this same theme of humanity under siege btw; y’all should read Wheel of Time while you’re waiting for TWOW.) The first line of defense, the Wall, is about to fall, and an enemy that will not break – that will not stop – that will only grow stronger as everyone you love dies – is about to overwhelm the world. While Bran and Dany and Jon and Tyrion are fighting, everyone else has one job: stay alive. To steal from another of GRRM’s favs and give the corollary to Dany’s “dragons plant no trees” quote, “your job [humanity’s job] is to plant yourself like a tree” and not move. Hold. Stay alive. Even if Bran and the three heads succeed in their tasks, the War is still lost if humanity dies. 

Some people like Arya and Brienne will stay alive by the sword, and that’s essential in this fight. But as you point out, Sansa’s story has never been about her fighting skills. Sansa has long been the maiden in the tower, surrounded by the thick castle walls of the Red Keep and later the Eyrie. Well, we know GRRM likes to turn tropes on their heads, right? That’s why we’ll put Sansa in another tower. I love the idea of turning the powerless maiden in the tower trope on its head and making Winterfell the place where Sansa comes into her own and having her hold it in the War. That’s what Winterfell was built for: to hold. Winterfell is designed so that when the first wall is lost, the defenders can retreat to the second wall and keep holding. Sansa has a strong connection to Winterfell, and many people believe Sansa’s snowcastle foreshadows her rebuilding the castle post-ADOS.

top 10 fics (any fandom), top 5 novels you read at school, top 5 ships

Oh sure, EASY ONES. ;)

Top 10 Fics - I’m just gonna do this off the top of my head, so I’m probably forgetting a few fics that I love, but these are ten that are among my very favorites, in no particular order:

1. the DC Series by @annerbhp (Stargate SG1, Sam/Jack) - This is one of the first Sam/Jack fics I ever read and it set the bar very, very high. 

2. While We Still Got Time by @hello-wright-or-wrong(Community, Jeff/Annie) - I watched the first five seasons of Community during the hiatus between S5 and S6, and this fic was my lifeline until S6 started airing. I must’ve read it a dozen times.

3. Weary With Right Angles series by @ponyregrets(The 100, Bellamy/Clarke, Bellamy/Miller, Bellamy&Miller, Miller/Monty, Monty&Jasper, Octavia/Lincoln, Raven/Gina) - One of the best, most thoughtful soul mate AUs I’ve ever read. 

4.  Aftershock by @greatestheights​ (The West Wing, some Josh/Donna but mostly gen) - This fic is a companion piece to the episode “Noel.” A therapist talks to five people about Josh Lyman in the aftermath of him being shot and almost killed, and it’s so beautiful and rich and detailed and full of feeling that I’ve sobbed my way through basically the entire thing both times I’ve read it.

5. Beauty and Nothing More series by @missparker(Stargate SG1, Sam/Jack, Daniel/OC) - This series probably isn’t to everyone’s taste but GOD I love it so much. I think a comment the author left on the last part in the series sums it up best: “this was always a series about how things don’t always go well, how they rarely go well, how being in love is only ever a part of something and not enough to survive on. it’s about how there are parents out there who mean well but do a poor job anyway. i wanted to write a story about flawed people, to write about their flaws and love them anyway. so that’s what i did.” 

6. A Longing to Wander Tears My Heart by @splash-the-cat(Jupiter Ascending, Gen) - All of Splash’s fic does a marvelous job of giving shading and details to the world of Jupiter Ascending (and here I’ll cheat by mentioning that I also really love The Gravity Of Duties Or The Ground Speed Of Joy, about Jupiter figuring out how to be a queen), but for some reason this little fic about Stinger taking pity on a lonely young Caine Wise and dragging him home on leave, where Caine has a tea party with Stinger’s wee Kiza, owns my heart.

7. this beast that you’re after by @catty-words(Community, sort of Jeff/Annie? but almost more Jeff & Annie friendship) - This tag to G.I. Jeff just hit me right in the chest and after I read it I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s become my headcanon.

8. Economies of Scale in Social Capital by @pepperf(Community, Jeff/Annie) - I’m Pepper’s beta reader, and I spent a lot of time with this fic, which is probably part of why I have so much affection for it. But also, it’s just a damn good AU, with fantastic characterizations and friendships and relationships written in a way that’s so true to the show and yet somehow even more perfect. (This is the sequel to an earlier fic in which Jeff and Annie were neighbors who got into a war over a parking space.)

9. turn the world upside down by @stopthenrewind(Community, Jeff/Annie) - This lovely, odd little fic just rings a bell in my heart and brain, and I don’t know exactly why. It’s not exactly an AU, but it’s not not an AU. There are time jumps. It gets the characterizations and the voices just right. Every now and then it occurs to me to read it again and when I do it lingers. I love it a lot.

10. the Drift is compatibility, not destiny series by @tielan (Pacific Rim, Mako/Raleigh) - This is the post-Pacific Rim fic that’s stuck with me. <3

Putting the rest after the jump because this got long.

Ha! I beat Antorii to The Things I deserve!


You can also make the world
Play the song from the Song of God,
All what matters
So I do not know

This is bad, and it’s my flesh and blood,
And all these tricks do not seem to be complete

The destruction of the railway line
We arrived to
The first question

It is a necessary suspension
Oh, not here,
And according to the doctor Boos
We hope that all

My house, leave a space and the soul is too difficult to remove
Share this universal laughter,
Cesare, why he feels this time to win,
And they want the best for more than my next life,

The decrease in entropy, of course,
I want to avoid playing God
He suggests that not give
The cries and tears, without being forced

This is bad, and it’s my flesh and blood,
Then click on the bay and in the language concerned: “I have repented

It is not so simple
World in the palm

My house, leave a space and the soul is too difficult to remove
Share this universal laughter,
Cesare, why he feels this time to win,
I’m not better than you, goodbye

Unfortunately, history does not improve
My flesh, blood loss
It went so well
The next day, you get what you deserve

“I’m not better than you, goodbye“ MEEEEEEEE ME ME ME ME


it’s 2am and I am relaxing well and truly rn for the first time in about 3 hours. Fuck my life.

Ok ok ok so yesterday I was warned that tonight was gonna be crazy. I was prepared.



The night started off well enough. I was running a bit late so my stepdad got food for me and brought it down after I’d already “clocked in”. I got to have the professional makeup artist do my makeup (pic coming shortly) so I was looking RAD.

Now, most of you don’t know, but I got temporarily relocated from the house to the funhouse because we had a supervisor quit. Long story short, I have sensory issues and that place…oh god. Fluorescent colors, black lights, loud noises and music, plus noises from other attractions on all sides. I took as many precautions as possible but wow. I bailed after 2 nights. I was done with that shit. We weren’t sure what we were going to do. But I had a solution idea this evening - I would go back to the house but come over to funhouse to help with breaks when it was time. It was gonna work but then another supervisor got thrown in there so I ended up not having to ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

I don’t even want to know what would’ve happened tonight if I hadn’t been back in the house where I needed to be.

Let me break this down for you: each attraction has 2-3 supervisors, 2 mains and if there’s a third then that third is a roamer. The supervisors oversee the regular workers, fill in empty spots if necessary, give people breaks, and other smaller things. I am the roamer for the haunted house, meaning I have 2 others I work alongside. I’ll refer to them ‘em as Al and Foxy here. Tonight, Al was filling in an empty spot meaning he could not give people breaks, leaving it to me and Foxy. Foxy has an area she keeps to but I roam the whole place, popping in wherever, which also means I’m the one best able to go get things, fill up water bottles, give people quick bathroom breaks etc.

Within ten minutes of opening, I was making a medical supplies run. Al had cut his finger and Foxy had rolled her ankle. A bandaid for Al and ice for Foxy. No problemo.  YEAH WELL THEN FOXY ROLLED HER OTHER ANKLE. Poor girl was straight up limping! And, of course, this threw things off. Thank god this normal worker stepped up and helped us with giving breaks. He even refused his own break. God bless. (I talked to the bossman about giving him a pay raise because there are ways to earn them and, damn, he deserved it. Bossman agreed.)

I ended up having to wrap Foxy’s ankles with medical tape (that stretchy stuff that sticks to itself) because there was nothing else to do. She couldn’t leave. I’ll be bringing her ace bandages and ankle braces tomorrow. At one point tonight, I threatened to bolt her to the floor if I caught her standing up again.

We had a couple guys need to run out for fresh air lest they throw up. Some customers cried. A LOT were drunk. One guy was so high I could smell it.  I had to keep one of my workers from going out to do her scare and I did it instead because I was genuinely afraid this group of people coming were going to step on her. (She’s like…4 foot 9 if even.)

One chick grabbed my butt in the queue line (OOOOO I WENT OFF, finger in her face and everything). Oh and one of our security guard’s daughter was roaming around in makeup tonight, scaring and helping, and apparently some dude grabbed her ponytail. OOOOOOOH. (Plz imagine me storming out of the dark and going the fuck off at a grownass man half a foot taller than me because that’s what happened.) He claims she touched him first (which I doubt) but I don’t fucking care if she bumped into you or whatever, motherfucker, you are a grownfucking ass adult man you have no business touching a ten year old little girl. At all. Period.
Fuck you.

And at the end of the night, I left the house since it was well in order and relocated to another haunt where they desperately needed help and told the supervisor, “Where do you need me?”  The look on her face <3  But hey, I figured I would be of much better use there.

We stop selling tickets at midnight. There were 100 people in queue–with tickets–at that point. Last group did not go through until 12:45.

I presented all the supervisors with cupcakes. There were many smiles. I am the MVP.

hi! i have a question regarding how you started your store! so my art teacher told me to make a brand for myself to sell my own stuff but i'm having a really hard time coming up with the name and logo design, so i was wondering how you did that? did it come naturally or do you have tips and tricks you're willing to share?

First, read this rumble I did awhile ago.

You are having a hard time because you are trying to jump the initial steps (maybe this is part of your assignment, I don’t know, I was a terrible art school student).

Figure out what you want to do and the rest will begin to fall into place.

You’re in an art class, not a business class, so stick with the broadest brushstroke of the idea and work onwards from there. The name, the logo, the aesthetic, the brand – all of this comes after you figure out “I want to make This Thing. These people tend to like it.”

Then go to the library.

Get a lot of books about Thing.

Make a pile of notes, make a pile of sketches. Continue until you’re making progress.

Little girl has been home for a few days now. Life has been hectic, everyone learning new routines and what they can and can’t do.

The littles were getting cabin fever today and driving each other bonkers. My mom told them that they either try on every pair of socks they have and sort or the ones that fit and don’t fit or they go on a photo adventure with dad.

They went with dad…lol

She had her first visitor… auntie @saaav came by…my dog almost ate her (sorry)…and she loved on pigeon. Ooooh does Sav loves babies!!!!!! Dogs and babies!!!! Lol

Little girl has been doing ok so far, she sleeps allllllll day and likes to save her chit chat for the night time.

Today was a rough day, I got hit with a really bad migraine. I ended up throwing up like 8 times, and had a good 3 ice packs on my head. Bless @runsforredvelvet for sending me a gel face mask. It helped soooooooooooo much!

I pulled through. I feel a little blah now but it will pass. I have a babe to love on…

Husband @sketchycrouton is a fucking CHAMPION! He was able to get 2 weeks off of work. He was still working when she came home, and he took her for me when he woke up for work so I could sleep. I get all the kisses and hugs and do you need anything..all day.

I love that man…

My Mommas is here also…how I adore her. She ran to the store the other day while sav was over and came back with a half gallon of creamer. Yelling when she walked in “gotta have a little bit of coffee with your creamer!!!!” Bless her heart!

I have also learned that little girl likes to sleep in certain positions on certain people. She for some reason does not like sleeping on my chest. But she slept on my moms for almost 2 hours…I said it was because of my moms really expensive “pillows”! (Fake boobs)..and she also likes to sleep on husbands chest. Rude!

She is a funny little bird…but she is my bird…😊

MADTOWN’s Jota Is Super Affectionate And Prepares A Thoughtful Gift For Kim Jin Kyung

On the latest episode of “We Got Married,” MADTOWN’s Jota and model Kim Jin Kyung go on a sweet vacation to the Taebaek Mountains in eastern South Korea. The mountains are known to be a location for the 2005 film “Welcome to Dongmakgol,” which was a huge critical and commercial success.

During the episode, the couple talks about a particular scene in the movie where they catch wild pigs. Kim Jin Kyung says, “Do you remember how to catch the wild pigs? You grab them like this.” Jota then says, “Like this?” and he comes up from behind to grab Kim Jin Kyung in a sweet back hug.

Jota continues to show his affectionate side as he brings out a special gift that he got for his virtual wife. After going on a treasure hunt, she finds a treasure box with a watch inside it. She smiles as she says, “This is my first time getting a watch as a present.” A note inside the treasure box reveals a letter from Jota that says, “I want to spend my time with you.”

Kim Jin Kyung is touched by his thoughtful present and says, “From now on, ask me for the time.”

In her interview with the writers, she reveals, “He doesn’t put ‘us’ as the center, but always puts me as the center. When he picked out the watch present, he didn’t say ‘our time’ but he instead said ‘your time.’ I got a bit teary-eyed at that.”

Can you post a picture of yourself? How long have you played the ukulele? Who did you learn it from? WHAT interested YOU about it? Random ask sorry

1. here ya go :)

2. I got my first ukulele in spring 2011, so about 5 and a half years! 

3. I taught myself! First I learned a few basic chords from the chord book that came with my uke, and then I started playing along to my favorite music. If I didn’t know a chord, I’d look it up and learn it as I went along. It’s a lot more fun to do it that way than to memorize a bunch of chords and notes. It also helped that I had some prior music experience with playing clarinet in the middle school band and teaching myself a little bit of piano in my spare time

4. I was at a music store with my family because my brother plays guitar and is kinda a musical genius so while he was shopping for guitar accessories and showing off his skills to the employees i kinda slipped off into the ukulele section and started fooling around with one and i just really liked the feel and the sound of it! So my parents got me and my brother ukuleles a few months later and the rest is history ^.^

A. How often do you masturbate?
not often enough. but at minimum four times a week. more if I get the chance.

B. How do you masturbate?
with a vibrator always. I love maximum pleasure and I can be very greedy about it at times. so typically, I use a wand but this week as been a mixture of my wand and my fingers.

C. What do I fantasize about while masturbating?
ha. well. a lot of things. depends on my mood. this week has been Taehyung. Yoongi. and my Moon Goddess. I watch porn when I masturbate because I’m all about visuals. although I also imagine things as well. but the thoughts of Taehyung going down on me and Yoongi having sex with me at work has been weighing on my mind a lot this week.

L. Describe your first time giving oral.
it was well-guided. it was with my first boyfriend and current. I gave a handjob before him but does that count as oral? I don’t know. but I don’t really remember my first blow job. I do remember he came in my mouth without warning and I spit out his orgasm because I wasn’t expecting it. hahaha. but to say the least, I was very eager and very excited during and he really enjoyed it. now I’m quite obsessed with blow jobs. yes. now giving oral to a woman? I haven’t had the pleasure yet but I fantasize often and I am determined to do it one day because of reasons.

M. Describe your first time receiving oral.
it was with a guy that was “very” experienced and a total dick. but he made me cum, so good for him. I was in high school and I had to sneak over to his house for like an hour to see him before his mom came home. he was a snake. seriously. but he asked what I wanted to do. and he teased me by licking my thigh earlier. so being the bold person that I am, I asked him to eat me out. and he did. and it was wonderful. and I came less than a minute haha.

X. Describe your last sexual encounter.
aish. I shall try to remember. it was on my birthday with my bf. all I remember is I ended up strapped to the bed. but before that, I sucked him off to get him nice and hard. then once he was frustrated enough, he tied me down. my wrists and ankles were cuffed to the bed in each corner. he went down on me until I came. tortured me for quite a bit because I’m very vocal and when I’m about to cum, I will let you know. so he would stop right before I did like five times. but once I came, he unhooked my ankle restraints but left my wrists bounded. made me prop my ass in the air and fucked me from behind. I gripped my wrist ties so hard, the headboard squeaked. we tried a couple of positions but this was our favorite. he reached forward and grabbed a hold of my throat and choked me lightly as he pounded into me. which made me more vocal because that’s my ultimate weakness. then he came and that was the end. it was a good time.
