*writing* Oh wow, they are going to love this. This is by far my best work!
*witty lines* *perfect love making* *fluffy enough to kill us all* *a dash of angst, a smidgen of hurt/comfort*
Oh man. This is it. This will be my legacy! *sweats into fic* *bleeds into fic* *cries into fic* *spends days perfecting the grammar and verbage and sex scenes* *has 15 betas look over it*
Okay. It is finally time to release my baby on the world. Here you go fandom. You're welcome.
Ha, cute. *like* *kudos*

same fanfic writer:
*writing* Whatever. This is shit, I don't even care right now. A singing squirrel? Sure, let's do it. Haha, cheesy lines that make no sense, sure. Grammatical errors out the wazoo? Why not. No one's going to read this piece of crap anyway, I literally wrote it on a scrap of 1 ply toilet paper with a broken yellow crayon.
OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING YOU HAVE EVER GRANTED US WITH, WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE, OMG, I NEED A SEQUEL IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE. WHAT THE. I'M NOT EVEN WORTHY. *kudosrebloglikereccomment*
So I have several followers who are working on applying to jobs right now, and by far the most common concern is “what even is a cover letter??” Now, while this post is funny and accurate, it’s not super helpful if you’re looking for specifics. So I figured I should show you mine. Now, without further ado, allow me to provide to you:
~*~ The Cover Letter of Destiny ~*~
[Name] [Address Line 1] [Address Line 2, etc] [Phone] [email]
[Right Justified - Date] (This is just standard business letter stuff)
To Whom it May Concern, [Or Mr/Ms. Hiring Person’s name, if you can find it.]
I’m delighted to submit an application for the [Job you’re applying to] position at [Company/Institution/etc]. After reading the job description I’m certain
I would bring a solid combination of [Skill 1], analytical thinking [or whatever Skill 2 is], and communication skills [This is always my Skill 3] to this position. I’m particularly attracted to this position
because I believe it will utilize the skills I have gained through my industry [or research or whatever] experience, and allow me to apply those skills in new areas.
In my role with [Company] as a [Most Relevant Position Here], I managed a
project [to do some stuff - flesh out your most important/relevant job responsibilities here]. I
specifically focused on [a thing that is the most explicitly relevant to the job posting. In fact, I creatively copy/pasted some of the job posting into this sentence, that’s how relevant it is.]. I was also responsible for [A couple of things that maybe were mentioned in the job posting, or at least show increased responsibility over time]. This gave me the
opportunity to collaborate with a variety of different team members [to achieve a goal]. Through
these and other job duties, I have gained excellent listening skills and the
ability to carry out self-directed tasks in the context of a larger team. [i’m not joking. use this phrasing it’s so great just copy it idgaf]
In my current role as a [Current Title] with [Company], I have continued to build strong skills in project management [or whatever] as well as clear oral and written communication. [Maybe this sentence describes the types of communication (or whatever skill) you do.][This sentence describes briefly the less-relevant work you do]. [This sentence ties in your less-relevant job to the job you are seeking]. These experiences have prepared me well to
succeed in a role as [Name of Position you’re applying to].
Thank you for taking the time to review my materials and
consider my application. I am excited at the prospect of applying my skills to
a [Name or category of position] with [Company], and I feel that the knowledge and
skills I have gained through my experience will be a great benefit to the team.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions as I would welcome a chance
to discuss this opportunity more. [After all, they want to hire you after reading this]
[First Name Last Name]
I hope you find this helpful in your job search! Just remember to focus on skills you learned rather than specific experiences or titles you’ve had. Don’t be afraid of inflating it too far, either. There are real useful skills underlying every job task if you look hard & get creative with your phrasing.
Feel free to send me an ask if you want any specific advice on how to spin your education/work history into the job you want, or if you want a proofreader or cheerleader or whatever. Job hunting is a bad game designed by and for a certain type of person. It’s dehumanizing and horrible even at the best of times, so I’m more than happy to help anyone find a way to beat the system. <3 <3
The question people ask me the most on here besides “are you dead” is how to make gifs and how to make them look good. So I finally decided to make a tutorial how to go from this: (I know this tutorial is pretty long and I apologize for that, I just wanted to make a tutorial everyone can understand because when I was a beginner I always wished for more detailed tutorials on this topic.)
So I’ve been rewatching the latest sander sides video to analyze it and try to theorize about what’s gonna happen, and I think I have a new theory. As you can tell by the last video, Patton was pretty clear on implying that his room was not just limited to happy emotions and that there are many different emotions that can take place in there. I think that Patton was trying his best to keep his room on the happy side so Thomas wasn’t sad, but now that Logan ducked out and Virgil seems like he might be about to have a panic attack, I think Patton’s room is going to turn really dark and instead of showing happy memories, bad memories that should be forgotten and cause bad emotions will start appearing. I don’t know if anyone’s said anything similar to this yet. Let me know if you agree/disagree!
Okay so no offence but has anyone see this chapter? Why is not the boruto tag full with these babies? OMg it’s incredible the crush that Metal has in Shikadai, he’s literally saying his name and then he just add “and the others”
Also, Metal Lee is too cute for this world like… absolute cinnamon roll
I don’t mean she suddenly has no children. That’s already happened to her at least 8 times over and it’s very sad. What I mean is less focus on her as the TEAM MOM, the person whose job it is to provide hugs, proper life advice, and helicopter parenting.
Less of Toriel as pure moral support, more of Toriel as a queen, or a defector, or the caretaker of the ruins. Toriel writing a journal full of bad jokes, throwing pizzas at Sans, squeeing about snail facts, being a teacher, learning hoiw to text, clipping coupons, learning that flinging fireballs at people is bad for first impressions… just Toriel being Toriel doing Toriel things that don’t involve just being the support for other characters.
More this please.
GRANTED this could also be down to the content I happen to look for, so if anyone has recs, I’m always up for them. Not just for this, but for anything
I love my best friend, he loves me too the only problem is that he is too tall and i'm too short and our friends say bad things to us and say that we can't stay toghether, we' ve talked and now we're just like nothing because we said: bestfirends not bc we aren't normal friends, boy-friend and girlfriend not bc of the other's thoughts, what can we do? What can I do? I can't love anyone else beacouse in my mind there's only him. Please help me i don't know what to do and I'm tired of all this.
I’m sorry but what kind of friends are those that say that a guy that’s too tal and a girl that’s too short can’t date? That’s simply stupid. If you like each other it doesn’t matter what others think. If you keep listening to your friends you’ll only be miserable and feel bad and one day you’ll regret it.
In which an evil friend put me into a PJO zombie au hell.
The story of an over protective brother who is 4000% DONE with the zombie apocalypse travels with his baby sister and some smartass chick trying to lead them to the last safe place in the US. A small camp outside the city of New York. Too bad they’re on the other side of the country. Did anyone say road trip?
Why don’t we have sign language in all schools, like when kids are learning the alphabet and when we get new words for spelling test we also just lean the sign for it to. like imagine not singeling out deaf and mute kids and confineing their entire world of communication to other deaf/mutes. Imagine haveing a mental illness/disablity that impares your ability to communicate and signing makes it easier, imagine being able to communicate in noisy areas or places that require silence, or haveing a bad day where u really dont want to talk to anyone so u sign instead and noone questions it, or just haveing a cold and signing because your voice is hoarse. There are so many useful things about nonverbal communication can be used for and it would be so easy to implement in all school levels without even makeing it a separate class.
ok guys. guys. you’re too kind. oh my god. here i am feeling bad for acting like a twat and all i get is dozens of people telling me it’s all good and i didn’t do anything and i don’t? deserve that? fuck i don’t know why you’re here but if you are (or even if you were and then left bc i’m the Worst) i need you to know that i appreciate you a fucking LOT. i have a way bigger platform than i should have and i definitely don’t use it right but i’d like to think i’ll get better.. eventually.
