how do i practice when i'm tired, like most people say "don't practice if you feel too tired or drained!" but lately i've been feeling like that All the time
first, make sure you’re not depressed because that certainly makes you tired (and make sure you’re generally healthy and whatnot, are getting adequate sleep, eating, etc)
second, if you are tired, don’t practice. bad practice is worse than no practice.
third, some questionable advice: drink coffee, but always drink coffee at different times of the day so that your body never becomes numb to the effects of caffeine. I’m not saying that you should develop a physical dependence on caffeine, and I’m not supporting using coffee as a crutch and as your sole source of reliable energy, but let’s face it–most of us have unhealthy habits anyway and we’re gonna die at 36 so what does it matter?
B - Biggest fear: I could get deep here but let’s say bugs
C - Current time: 6:23 but prob much later by the time I’m done
D - Drink you had last: pepsi
E- Every day starts with: this BLARING ALARM CLOCK NOISE FROM A NEARBY TRAIN STATION NOW THAT I MOVED AND I WANT TO DIE.
F - Favorite song: hmmm… I mostly listen to musicals lol and right now I like Stuck from Groundhog Day, it’s so funny (except that it gets the line “AN ENEMA, WOULD YOU LIKE AN ENEMA?” stuck in my head and that’s not something you can really go around singing….)
G - Ghosts, are they real: i think no, and i hope no
H - Hometown: just moved away D:

K - Killed someone: only in fic O:)
L - Last time you cried: last night D: me and my boyfriend had a really nice morning together then we went to a surprise party for a friend, saw a broadway show, and on the way home MY PHONE LOOKED LIKE IT BROKE. it insisted i ‘activate’ it like you do with a brand new phone and wouldn’t come on no matter what and i was so upset because i have six years worth of texts, pics, etc on it so i was crying and my poor bf had to try to console me without letting anyone else notice i was crying.

A few semesters ago a guy in my dorm building took too many hallucinogenic drugs and decided in his altered state of mind that it would be fun to take off all his clothes and wander around campus stark naked while there was a college tour going on, giving a full frontal to a bunch of naive and innocent high schoolers. At the same time, my best friend was walking back onto campus after day drinking at brunch and comes face to face with this naked dude who tries to have a full on conversation with him. So here’s my best friend, pretty drunk, standing there with a butt-naked dude on drugs. And my friend turned to a nearby security guard and said “UM HELLO?!! IS SOMEONE GONNA CALL THE COPS?!” And the guard said in a tired, underwhelmed voice “yeah they’re on their way” as if the guard constantly has to deal with weird shit like this on campus everyday. And now there’s a picture on Twitter of this naked dude talking to my best friend and it’s captioned with my school’s slogan.
Oh, and to top it all off: this is a Catholic university.

Growing up in the south I have the fondest memories of sun tea made on hot days, using nothing but the sun’s warm rays to help the infusing process. I love sun tea because because it’s almost impossible to mess up, there isn’t any boiling water to worry about and almost no way to burn the leaves.
However, as a witch I have a new found appreciation. A simple drink can become a way to fill yourself with different magical properties. The sun itself is a catalyst for spells for vitality, clarity, health, happiness, and confidence. The best part is, ITS SO EASY.
FIRST: Pick the tea leaves for what you are trying to accomplish. Green tea is great for igniting passion, sexual health, and love. Black tea represents nature, strength, and is good for expelling and removing negative energies. Then we have herbal teas which are a whole other story with lots of different flavors and herbs with expansive options and magickal properties.
SECOND: Pick a few crystals to put on the lid or around the pitcher. Here I have crystal quartz and carnelian. I chose quartz for its ability to cleanse and enhance the crystals around it, and carnelian to help with anxiety and depression.
THIRD: Place outside or in a window with a lot of light and let the sun work its magic. During this time focus on what you are trying to manifest. Put all your intentions into the witchy brew. Remove tea bags when it reaches your desired color (I use six regular bags per two liters, but it’s up to you how strong you like your tea). Pour over ice and enjoy.
Optional: you can add cut fruit to further the intention. Strawberries, lemons, mint, or blood orange.
Some amazing combinations are:
🌞 Hibiscus tea and rose quartz for love
🌞 Black tourmaline and black tea for spirit cleansing
🌞 White tea and grapefruit for purification and uniting with the goddess of your choice
Really, the sky is the limit here. Try everything, there are no wrong answers.
Let me know what you guys try! I hope you enjoy this :)
SUPER EDIT: It was brought to my attention that I forgot to include some serious food safety tips with this, so here they are.
I’ve been drinking this for 24~ years? With no issue because I do the following:
- use purified water, most bacteria comes from the water itself in addition to things like unsanitized pitchers and what not. - do not leave the tea out for more than the intended brewing time (15-30 minutes). - only make what you intend to drink that day. - keep in the refrigerator no longer than 72 hours. - use tea leaves that come from sealed packages and are not expired. - if tea ever develops ropey looking strands, toss it and wash the container with hot water and soap (I also will rinse with vinegar).
