  • i just love everything ok

What to do when you’re stuck with a lazy group? I’m with two guys and we still haven’t chosen a topic. We have to present in two weeks. Nobody replies to my messages and both left after class this week. I just wanted to choose a topic and leave!!!! So I booked a study room today and they all made excuses. Ugh. I’m gonna be the one who’s doing all the work. This is worth 40% of our grade. Same as the exam. FML

Hi there, thank you for asking, as this is a super common problem in high school, university and the workplace! I’ve never seen this question answered in depth on studyblr, so I’ll give it a go! 

NB. It depends on your personality as to the approach you want to take, so let everyone who’s reading this not pass judgement upon others in such a situation~ Remember in all of this to be polite, understanding and gracious no matter how much you want to flip tables. The following 5 Options go in order of how many bridges you want to burn :’)

Option 0. Wait for a bit longer and try communicating with them again.

I have seen a similar question asked once on tumblr where the studyblr blogger answered “two weeks is plenty of time, you’re probably over-reacting”… Obviously, I’m not going to trivialise your answer by giving you just one option like that - I frankly thought that studyblr was quite rude for answering so shortly to someone who took the time to ask them a question.

How to do it: The way you communicate with them now might not be effective, so make sure that you’re ticking off the following boxes if you choose this option, rather than just letting nothing change: meeting face to face, setting mini-deadlines for each part instead of just allocating once at the beginning, and make sure each member knows what and when they have to complete something.

This option is best suited for people who:

  • really don’t want to create a commotion and would rather wait a little longer and reduce the time available for them to do the project,
  • or people who would answer ‘Strongly Disagree’ to “Being organized is more important to you than being adaptable“ and “In a discussion, truth should be more important than people’s sensitivities.” in a personality quiz (a strong prognostic factor for Option 1 tbh),
  • or people who know they can tackle everything in less than 1 week,
  • or people who just realised/kind of know they’re actually overreacting,
  • or have just realised whilst reading this that maybe they didn’t actually try contacting the other group members all that well (i.e. don’t have enough evidence for Option 3).

Pros:

  • Nobody gets angry at anyone, and it doesn’t reflect badly on you either (because no one finds out if you don’t say anything - people tend to be judgemental if you pick one of the three options below).
  • Less stressful for some people than confrontation.
  • You might get eventual cooperation.

Cons:

  • You might not get eventual cooperation, and end up being stuck with all the work anyway (hence resulting in options below).
  • More stressful for other people as you feel time is ticking away and nothing is changing.
  • The time you spend waiting for the others will result in less time for you to tackle all the actual work.

Pro-tip: doing as much individual work as possible sometimes will egg those team members to finally start pulling their weight, or can help you with Option 3 if you do end up going for it.

Option 1. You make all the decisions and do all the work.

Best suited for people who: are academically gifted, like doing work independently, have excellent time management skills.

Pros:

  • You can ensure the quality of the work will be excellent.
  • You get to choose what topic to do and direct the overall project turnout.
  • No one hates you for anything, but NB. your friends and family relationships that suffer as a result of the time you have to sacrifice might not have anything pleasant to say about it all.

Cons:

  • You need an extraordinary amount of time.
  • The other people in the group get a free ride and in nastier words, some would say you get taken advantage of for your goodwill.
  • Lack of group opinion may make the quality of your work suffer.
  • Other subjects you’re taking may suffer.

Option 2. Badger the other group members until they do some work.

Best suited for people who: don’t want to be stuck with Option 1, but don’t want to escalate to Option 3. Give them an ultimatum about the work, or just decide the topic by yourself if they don’t step up.

Pros:

  • Very similar to Option 0 in that you wait a bit longer before taking drastic action, so you might get eventual cooperation, and you don’t bother your professor.

Cons:

  • You stress yourself out badgering other people.
  • Other group members get annoyed at you, and your classmates that happen to watch you badgering have a not-so-great impression of you.

Option 3. Document a significant amount of evidence that shows your effort to get them to contribute and contact the professor about it.

Best suited for people who: would like to do things independently but just cannot afford the time because of other commitments.

Pros:

  • Professor can step in and (hopefully) offer some sort of alternative solution.
  • Your other subjects won’t suffer.
  • Sometimes you have a really great professor and they end up taking into account that you’ve done the project by yourself and mark super nicely/give a bonus mark, or even penalise the other students.

Cons:

  • Professor may snuff you and say “the purpose of this project is also to learn about team cooperation”. Had a prof before who told us straight up at the beginning of the project that “you work it out, not me”
  • Professor may help you out, but in a way that doesn’t really end up helping e.g. he just emails the two members of your group to tell them to start working once and that’s it.
  • Other group members hate you for life (and I know this bothers some people enough not to go through with it, again pls remember no judgement fellow readers)

How to do it: Email should be along the lines of the following:

Dear Professor _______,

I am a current student undertaking [course code]. I am sorry to contact you in unfortunate circumstances, but I have been having severe difficulty convening with the other members for the remainder of the _____ project. While I am aware that group projects have a dual purpose to both educate us on the academic topic as well as to improve our cooperation and communication skills, I have tried [insert whatever means you attempted to contact them by, attaching evidence is up to you]. I have already completed the intro/background research/other individual task, however I cannot complete the ______ by myself/without group input.

I would appreciate any guidance you could offer/I would greatly appreciate your help/If it is possible, could you please [insert action depending on how desperate you are - don’t ask for anything unreasonable!]?

I apologise for having to inconvenience you, and thank you for your understanding on the matter.

Kind regards,

[Name and student number]

Option 4. You do all the work and then leave their names off the work.

Best suited for people who: work independently, don’t mind burning a few bridges. I won’t actually recommend this option, but I’ve seen this happen in real life.

Pros:

  • Sense of self-satisfaction for some people when the lazy members don’t get a free ride.
  • Again, you make sure the project quality is exactly what you want.

Cons:

  • Similar to Option 1 minus the free ride bit.
  • Not only do the other group members hate you, but their friends in your cohort will too. At least in Option 3, those guys can’t try and gossip behind your backs because whoever they tell will realise that they didn’t do the right thing either.
  • Do this at your own risk, as it can backfire depending on the professor - if anyone’s watched Cheese in the Trap - the main character does all the work but the professor managed to suss out that the other group members didn’t do anything, and as a result penalised her with a D grade for failing to make it “group” work despite the fact she would’ve gotten an A. Some profs are really… they just don’t see it your way :/

Hopefully things don’t have to escalate to Option 4, but whatever you choose to take, I’ll wish you the best! I’ve given quite detailed instructions and written comprehensively, but feel free to contact me any time if you need any more help :)

DO YOU KNOW ABOUT BLACK TULSA? IF NOT… WHY NOT?

This horrific incident has been well documented, everywhere: from YouTube videos of survivor interviews to PBS Lesson Plans for school teachers. Please do your Google diligence:

  • From May 30 to June 1, 1921, white citizens of Tulsa bombed burned and shot up the “Little Africa” section of Tulsa FOR 18 HOURS STRAIGHT
  • Why would they do that? That same old lame excuse, a Black man supposedly did something to a white woman. But the real reason was ECONOMIC JEALOUSY. Whites may have called it Little Africa derisively, but there is a reason that Black Tulsa is known as Black Wall Street
  • In addition to the 300 Blacks killed, and over 1,000 residential homes burned to the ground, also destroyed were:
  • The Mt. Zion Baptist Church and five other churches; the Gurley Hotel, Red Wing Hotel, and Midway Hotel; the Tulsa Star and Oklahoma Sun newspaper offices; Dunbar Elementary School; Osborne Monroe’s Roller-Skating Rink; the East End Feed Store; the Y.M.C.A. Cleaners; the Dreamland Theater; a drug store, barbershop, banquet hall, several grocery stores, dentists, lawyers, doctors, and realtors offices; a U.S. Post Office Substation, as well the all-black Frissell Memorial Hospital. All told, marauding gangs of savage whites destroyed 40-square-blocks of Black economic and entrepreneurial prosperity!

64 years after the first bombing of an American city was committed against the Black residents of Tulsa… the second bombing of an American city took place in Philadelphia when the city bombed the black members of the MOVE organization. (see the blackourstory archive for details). 

Isn’t it a shame that 76 after the bombing of Tulsa, when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Murrah Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City, most historically illiterate Americans - including American “journalists” - responded as if it were the first time such a horror had been visited on Oklahoma. If only we knew.

While there are many lessons to be drawn from this, a few questions that stick out to me are these:

  • If the answer to Black second-class treatment from whites in America is supposedly to become the ultimate American capitalists…the ‘model minorities’… how do you explain Tulsa 1921?
  • For those Black folk who think that the sole answer to Black people’s problems is simply more Blacks becoming business owners and more Blacks spending money with other Blacks… how did that work out for our people in Tulsa in '21?
  • Considering not only Tulsa, but Rosewood, Florida, and many other thriving all-Black towns that you may know of that all met the same fate at the hands of murderous, envious, lazy crackers… WHEN ARE WE GOING TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND TAKE SERIOUSLY THE IDEA THAT BLACK WEALTH (ESPECIALLY ALL-BLACK WEALTH) WILL NEED TO BE PROTECTED WITH PHYSICAL FORCE?

There is a reason that Marcus Garvey AND Elijah Muhammad had armies of trained Black men as a huge part of their organizations. Many of us Black folk took those great men as jokes, yet NO BLACK LEADERS SINCE THOSE TWO have reached the same heights of economic and ideological success and unity of Black people. 

Not only do we need to LEARN THIS HISTORY, we need to start taking these events men and movements MORE SERIOUSLY, and doing some CRITICAL HISTORICAL ANALYSIS if we are ever to stop being on the bottom rung of every metric in American life. Not just some casual or accidental reading of history; some CRITICAL. HISTORICAL. ANALYSIS.

We’ve had many examples before us, but were often too undisciplined or brainwashed or lazy to follow them. Shame on us. If even one-fourth of the people who claimed to love Brother Malcolm in his day had at least one-tenth of Malcolm’s discipline, he might not have needed to hire an FBI Agent named Gene Roberts whom he didn’t have time to scrutinize properly beforehand, because all the Black folks who gassed him up to leave the Nation of Islam and who joined Brother Malcolm’s MMI were too damned undisciplined and untrained IN ANYTHING USEFUL TO PROTECTING BLACK PEOPLE to even serve as proper security for him. Read it again, in context of this entire post, and let it marinate.

AMERICA NEEDS TO PAY US WHAT THEY OWE FOR ALL OF THIS TORTURE ROBBERY AND MURDER that they’ve visited on us since they brought our people here as captives and bred us for profit.

TULSA 1921 was real. PHILLY 1985 was real. Will it happen again?

Organizational Systems for School

Hey guys!!!!! It’s me!!! I’m finally right back at you all with an all new organizational advice post that will make organizing for school a blast!

Binders

Binders are probably one of the most common organizational systems here in the US! I’m not sure about other parts of the world, so if binders aren’t the most common organizational system where you live, then please share by replying to this post!  Binders can be really organized as you can just flip through them, but the downside is that they can get very bulky, you have to hole punch your papers, and tons of students tend to stuff everything in the front pocket just to name a few! Anyhow, binders are a solid option for most!

Pros:

+Can be organized

+You can flip through and find papers easily

+You can hold lots of papers and even a pencil pouch!

+Many types and sizes to choose from!

Cons:

-Bulky

-Need a hole puncher/hole punched papers

-Students tend to “stuff everything” in that front plastic pocket of the binder

-The closing and opening rings thing can be annoying sometimes

-Holes from punching tend to rip on papers

Folders

Another common way of organizing is using folders! I know that a lot of people use these in addition to using binder!  They are really effective, efficient, compact, and organized too! However, all lot of people tend to shove random papers in folders and they can hold that many papers for a class that has TONS of handouts!

Pros:

+Light/Compact

+Can separate classes into 2 sections

+Plastic ones tend to be super durable

+Don’t have to hole punch

Cons:

-Paper folders tear easily

-People still tend to get lazy and shove random papers in them

-Limited paper capacity

-You have to “search” the folder and can’t just flip like a binder

Expanding File Folders

You’ve probably seen these all around Tumblr! They go by many names, such as accordion files, expanding files, and much more! They are pretty uncommon, but are actually really organized, and in my opinion kind of is like a combination of a binder and folder (since there are sections like binder dividers and you just put the papers in with no rings). The really only downside is that it’s hard to find papers in it and it can can very bulky overtime! I know that Sareena from  @studyign and Jasmine from @studyquill use these and love them!

Pros:

+Pretty durable

+Light/compact

+Expands and holds tons of papers

+Don’t have to hole punch

+Usually comes with labels for the tab sections

+Has different sections

Cons:

+Limited sections

+Can get bulky if you put too many papers in it

+Harder to find papers

“Hybrid Systems”

I don’t know if this actually counts as an “organizational system”, but I will include it anyway! A hybrid system is what I actually use! It’s basically is using different organizational systems together and tailoring each to your own needs! For example, I use one big binder, folders for each class, notebooks for each class, and lastly an expanding file folder to store old work! You can learn more about how I organize in my How I Stay Organized Post (although my system has changed just a pinch since the making of that post)!

Pros:

+Customizable

+Can make your own system that fit your needs

+Takes the good parts of each system and mashes it into a MEGA AWESOME SYSTEM!

+Can be super organized

+Allows you to adapt to each class for the best organizational results

Cons:

-Can be hard to maintain

-Things can get lost between all the storage devices you choose to use

-Might have to invest in a lot of stuff

Why do we even have name tags? At my old job EVERYONE kept dropping the "A" off the end of my name and yes, my name minus the A is still a name but it's not my name. If I called people on it I got "oh it's just a nickname" well you don't know me well enough to nickname me because if you did you would know I HATE that name with a burning passion. I can't even begin to imagine what a nightmare it is for trans people with their preferred name on their tag. People suck and you all deserve better.

I tend to ignore people until they say my name correctly. I hate people shortening my name because they are too lazy to say the whole name. I had one that did t get the hint and complained to the manager that I was rude by not answering. He called my name (correctly) I looked at him and he said “are you ignoring this customer?”
Me “I’m not ignoring anyone”
Customer: “I’ve been calling you”
Me: “you were calling someone else. You weren’t saying my name”
Customer: I was calling (short version of my name) and you ignored me"
Me: “that’s not my name so I thought you wanted someone else. How can I help you”

He complained that he was calling my name so I called him “BOB” the rest of the time. He said “my names Robert not bob!” And I told him “my name is Rodney not Rod” and he huffed and left.

Don’t shorten people’s names without their permission. It pisses me off and it really pisses my wife off. It’s not her fault her mom gave her an unpronounceable name and you don’t get to shorten it without permission.

-Rodney

Ok, I love Skye’s writing- I have and will continue to say that for as long as I can. Skye is a generally talented person and she has such a great mind. I’ve honestly enjoyed our interactions so much even if they seem limited. Regardless the way she can get these characters in a darker mindset is so amazing. Actually she gets a lot of genres right, but I am a fan and a very lucky friend to know someone of her caliber. Or so I hope I’m her friend otherwise fvhuuhv I’m just being a dork and over stepping boundaries.

Please, read her stuff, the vines are amazing and the stories on fanfiction are great and just. Just everything she writes is pure gold! So much thought goes into everything and it’s all easy on the eyes.

A sweet darling babe from the raniest of villages. The Mun is great and has such a wonderful personality, like I’ve generally laughed a few times with her? She makes a day a bit better with her stunning personality. Also she’s a cutie??? Such a sweet babe. The muse is a sweet lil orphan babe who Kintsugi has adopted because all of her children are actually with her and no one got to live with poopy pants Danzo has worked hard in becoming a diplomat for konoha and her original village. Baby I’m blanking right now on the village name, I’m srry.

One day me and you will have a pizza parlor that is combined with a dog shelter and more. Animal loving pizza pals.


@cervamater

Mirin is such a beautiful and talented person. I will fight her for this. I pretty much already have today ffff. Cause she is. BUT ANYWAYS, I love the spin she’s done to the character Yoshino Nara. Honestly she’s given her such a depth that I just adore. Not only that she has her own characters that are so detailed and beautiful and go along perfectly with the narrative she’s given Yoshino. She’s also great with coming up with alternate verses and I swear most of my verses anymore are either with her or the person below. 

Mirin ur a beautiful Italian goddess please accept my offerings of love and admiration.


@fulgadrome

BUG FAM!!! My sweet Fumio, darling sweet little she’s actually a freakin giant but I digress I love her Fumio. She is a perfect ball of imperfections and she has an interesting backstory to her. The Mun is so bright! And honestly another one who can do well in dark subjects cause her fave genre is horror and I luv because we can bond even more now that we got blood borne to show us the way. We actually usually end up some how getting into politics together and I find that hilarious because we could be discussing the complete opposite of it and still some how mange to get on the subject.

I often feel pity for Jonghyun fans. He is so unpopular that there are virtually no photos or news about him during public events if he isn't together with popular people and his fans are forced to search for his name on sns because he is overshadowed by all the Jonghyun of Korea. It's sad that his fans have to always worry and work to mantain the popularity of an egoist too focused on himself and his geniality and too lazy to work hard to repay the sacrifices and trust of his fans.

The past, the present... The future.

Summary: In SHIELD you are known for your charisma and your irrational optimism. Specially taking in count the irreversible curse HYDRA condemned you with. Because of that, Director Fury has determinate that you are the best person to take care of Bucky’s mental state.

Chapter 1: My curse

Pairing: Bucky x reader

Y/N: your name

Warnings: Contains references to Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and the inhumans, but nothing that would count as a major spoiler. Also, references to weapons (guns).

Word count: 1,676

A/N: This is my very first time writing a fanfic, so I hope you enjoy it! I would love to have some feedback so let me know what you think! I’m planing on doing a series. This part is pretty light, I have a lot more dramatic scenes as the story goes on.

Y/N POV’s:

Light floats through the room, creeping across my eyelids to remind me that a new day has started.  I sit up and look around my room to orientate myself after another busy night fighting off nightmares. The right wall is made completely out of glass, giving me amazing views of the forest that expands all around the facility. It also fills my room with light at any hour of the day, which is fortunate, as the walls are painted black. Next to the window I have an immense desk covered in papers and supplies and equipped with the latest technology, just like about anything in my room. I also have a boxing space, bookshelves (not enough for my books: a lot of them are lying on the ground), a full body mirror that doubles as a computer and, of course, my bed. The walls are covered with posters of any topic imaginable, from movies to the latest science innovations along with photos and… anything hangable, really.

As I’m covered in sweat, i decide to take a shower before heading out into the new day. While I let the warm water drip through my body, mixing with the coconut scent from my shampoo, I ask the personal assistant in the mirror to go through my timetable today and fill me in with anything I may have missed.

Good morning, Agent Y/N. Today you had a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs to coordinate SHIELD’s missions off borders. You also had agreed to help agent Daisy train the new recruits for the inhumans. Finally you were going to take part in the planing of the mission to take down the latest HYDRA facility found. However, all you plans for today have been cancelled, and your daily revision with agent Jemma Simons was been delayed.

“And what’s the reason for all this change?” I ask, stepping out of the shower while drying my hair with a towel.

Director Fury wanted to have a meeting with you before breakfast.”

I nod, wondering what Fury might want to talk about. I come out of the bathroom and open the sliding doors to enter my closet. Aside from the clothes, which I do not have a great variety of as I spend most of my life in uniform, my closet is filled with objects that do not fit in my room, from my electric guitar to boxes with case files. Cameras, souvenirs … even my skate is here!

I dress in my black jumpsuit, with a SHIELD logo on my shoulder, and tie the numerous leather straps that incorporate weapons into my uniform. It’s not like I expect to be attacked at the base soon, but the protocol requires that all active agents carry at least one weapon around, and I must admit that I feel much more comfortable knowing I’m not defenseless. I place the pistol inside the holster on my hip, put on my fingerless gloves and tie my shiny black boots. I put my hair in a braid and finally step out of my room, my brightest smile on, ready to fight the world.

I make my way to Fury’s office, smiling politely at everyone. As I happen to come across Daisy on my way there, I also stop to apologize for not being able to help her this afternoon.

“Don’t worry” she smiles putting a hand on my shoulder “I’m sure you’re going to go up another level or something. Can you go up another level if you already have maximum access to everything? Well, never mind. You have to tell me everything!”

“I’ll meet you for lunch” I promise her as I wave goodbye.

When I enter Fury’s office, he is looking at a report, but puts it down as soon as he realizes I’m  in the room. He stands up, smiling.

“Y/N! I’m glad you have finally decided to show up.” I open my mouth to complain, but he carries on in a more serious tone “I have something important. Something really important I need you to take care of. Come here, I’ll explain you everything while we have breakfast.”

A while later, we both sit in front of a steamy plate of scrambled eggs and bacon.

“Nick, all this tension is getting on my nerves. Would you mind to explain what exactly I’m required to do?” I say, my knee bouncing up and down under the table as I try to liberate energy from my body.

He solemnly looks up from his plate and passes me a file. It’s pretty thick, and I recognize the man in the front picture immediately. My heart stops for a millisecond and I have to remind myself to breath. I inhale deeply, fighting against panic, and recompose my smile as well as I can.

“The Winter Soldier…” I say, looking at Fury for more explanations.

“I trust you know his story.”

“I do, I read about him on some files a few months ago. And all the rumors going around..”  Nick looks at me in the eye as if he expects me to say something else, but that is all that’s going to come out of my mouth. He leans back before asking.

“What is your opinion on him?”

“My opinion, you mean, as in whether he is innocent or not?” I ignore the ghosts of memories that pass before my eyes and carry on “According to all the data we have, he is. Right?”

“Yes Y/N, Bucky is completely innocent.” he says. The pause that follows warns you that I may not like what’s coming next. “Y/N, Bucky needs psychological support after this traumatic experience. Not a psychologist, but someone to help him adapt and to be his friend. Most importantly, to help him move on. Before you say anything, Steve is not completely qualified to do so, as he doesn’t understand what Bucky has been through. We are still trying to get the trigger words out of his brain and that’s only the beginning of the process of healing. He was taken to the Avengers’ compound about a week ago, as we thought it was easier to treat him from there. Unfortunately, Mr Stark isn’t very happy with the idea. Bucky needs help as soon as posible and I have decided you are the most indicated person to do the job.” He looks at me apologetically, demonstrating, once more, how instinctive he is. I have never told anyone about it, but he somehow knows, somehow feels it.

“Why me?” I whisper, not trusting my voice. Nick looks at me.

“Because you know what it is like, you have lived it. You know what HYDRA does to its prisoners. You probably know something about the mind wiping and you definitely are one of the most empathic persons I have ever come across.” He pauses for a second and then his look softens a little “And you are by far the happiest and more optimistic person I have and will ever meet. All that happened to you, and you are somehow here, in front of me, still smiling.”

I take a deep breath. Nick has a point and, as much as I fear it, I can’t deny my help to someone who needs it so badly. But man, this was going to be difficult. Really difficult. I stand up and take the files.

“When am I leaving to the Avengers Compound?”

Nick smiles “I was hoping you would this afternoon”

                                                                      
I run through the Winter Soldier’s files wile I wait for Jemma to give me my results. I have skim-read the first few pages when Daisy enters the lab and walks towards me.

“I knew I would find you here.” she smiles “I heard you’re moving in to Stark’s.”

“You heard?” I ask, raising an eyebrow.

“Well, Coulson may have talked with Fury about it and he may or may have not told me a little something” She stops and pulls a fake deep-in-thought pose “Or I may have hacked the system… again.”

“You really are incurable.”

“So… You’re going to be the Winter Soldier’s personal phsycologist?”

“That may, or may not be true.” I laugh “Do you know something about him that could be useful? I’ve read he used to make really good impressions on people.

“That would explain why his name is in the memorial to the agents lost in the line of duty, even though he died before SHIELD was created.”

“I know. Someone has to fix that, by the way. I mean: he was lost, but now he is found. Or maybe metaphorically he is not the same person, after all he has gone through, so he is still lost. Or maybe your name stays there even if you are not actually dead…”

“Or maybe we are just too lazy to change it”

“Good point.”

Jemma laughs behind me. I turn around  and she presses the tablet in her hand.

“Before I show you anything, I wanted to tell you I have send the instructions of your revision to Mr Stark, so that you can get it done by him once in the compound.” I thank her profusely, even though I’m not extremely excited with the prospect of having a medical revision with a Stark. “Here are your results.” she says, showing me the projection coming from her tablet. I anxiously read all the numbers and signs I have learned by heart in the past years, desperately looking for something, anything, different to usual. I don’t succeed.

“Not a single second?” I ask, in case I have missed something. As she shakes her head, my shoulders sink. Someone would say I should have gotten used to it after all this time but I can’t help to have hope. Daisy puts her arm around me. I take a deep breath and smile again.

I try to think of the positive aspects, but the reality is, I haven’t aged a single minute in the past forty-eight years.

And no, it’s not as fun as you think.

Part 2.

as of my first two days in scotland:

  • i have been called ‘darlin’ by a seventy-something old lady with a thick scottish accent
  • she told me! that i speak perfect english! which just made my entire week
  • she also stuffed me with food and tea 
  • i’ve eaten scones for the first time in my life! with butter! and raspberry jam!
  • (and also like. haggis. which wasn’t nearly as traumatising as i thought it’d be)
  • i met a lazy fluffy church cat in a pretty chapel
  • two of my flatmates seem cool but two of them remain to be seen?
  • also cool-looking people from all over the world who are going to study such amazing things??
  • ‘HI I’M NICK I’M GAY’ 
  • i, however, feel like i’m too deeply uncool for proper socialising
  • my personal tutor has a german name and keeps sending us mails because he keeps forgetting to include things
  • (i can relate)
  • everything is tartan and i bloody love tartan which is just. ah. 
  • edinburgh is like a homelier, prettier london and you can even see bits of the sea? lovely buildings, lots of trees, and art galleries! i already love it so much???
  • dudes in kilts playing bagpipes everywhere.
  • i got soaked through properly like three times because the weather changes with the speed of a rocketship though
  • as part of my sensible budgeting until i find a job, i sensibly purchased a student ticket for the nt live screening of yerma 
  • (cos … i just want to see yerma)
  • i have my own little room and it’s so much nicer than i thought it’d be. i put up my blinking lights and it feels so bloody odd but nice to think i’ll be living here. living here.
Damian Wayne/Robin X Reader- Bickering

Warning: Swearing

Sitting peacefully on the edge of a building, you took in a deep breath, taking in the new scents of Gotham.  The cool wind nipped at your skin comfortably, the cool temperature providing a serene mood to your surroundings.  It was surprising to you that Gotham could be this tranquil despite its dark reputation.  Its crime infested roots was not something one would look forward to, but this was not about you.  You were here to see Damian after two years of constant missions taking you around the world.  Sending a letter was the only way you could contact him since you knew exactly where he was, you were too lazy to find out what Damian’s phone number would be.

I don’t want to give my surname but my first name is Beth. Also all my watermarks will be to my instagram because I’m too lazy to do separate watermarks

LOVE Y’ALL

EXACTLY @4e6f! Thank you for putting it into words (check out their post if you haven’t already!).

Way too many people think that the fandom is just mad because of some ships. Like HELL NO. I, for once, didn’t really care about whom Shindo ‘ends up’ with because guess what? THE ROMANCE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THE MAIN FOCUS OF THIS SERIES. What the fuck were those last episodes, freaking SAO?

I’m both mad and amused by how this genuinely good and quite original anime suddenly went on the ‘check every possible overused cliche’ parade, completely TRASHING Saraka’s character (and I loved that girl in the begining, goddammit), lazily turning zaShunina into an ‘evil force that must be stopped or the world will end’ (they could have done so but in a more convincing way tbh), basically turning Hanamori solely into Shindo’s peasant minion slave tool or whatever, throwing in characters that had potential but had no real role in the story (the soldier? Natsume? Shuuhei?), creating an undeveloped, totally unconvincing romance and making it almost the main plot point in a freaking sci-fi, and throwing all political/social aspects of the story out the window once Shindo/Saraka became ‘trueee lovee~~~’ . And when it tried to be smart and innovative again, apparently it turned out the writers ran out of ideas so they Deus ex Machina-ed their way through the ending “Breaking Dawn” style.

And given the anime’s great premise and quite phenomenal first episodes (focus on politics, the art of negotiations, the conflicts in the UN, discussing humanity’s dilemmas, zaShunina learning about the human ways, Saraka being a cool likeable professional standing her ground without depending on anyone, Shindo not being a dick to everyone around while still cosplaying as Lelouch 2.0 sacrificing himself - nice try boy, but not even close lol) it’s not just disappointing, it’s almost unforgivable. It’s like I was watching a completely different anime past episode 8. Some weird funny sao - naruto’s sasunaru - breaking dawn mashup.

So yeah, it’s not all about some gay ships (I know a lot of people are mad about that too but that’s just a tip of the iceberg really).

It’s about bad lazy writing. And we’re really talking Meyer’s “Breaking Dawn” level bad lazy writing (though Renesmee’s plot was still way better developed than this chick’s whose name I forgot so I’ll just conveniently call her by her real name, Deus ex Machina).

I know it’s easy to accuse the whole fandom of being a delusional crazy bunch of fujoshi when faced with a criticism, and I understand that some people genuinely liked the ending/the whole series, I can respect that. But please don’t be delusional yourself by denying that it touched so many cliches and Deus ex Machinas near the end, it was almost comedic.

Such a shame, to be honest.

Hi my name is Tybalt Dark’ness Dementia Raven Capulet and I have ebony black hair with a white streak in it and brown eyes that are dark like my soul and a lot of people tell me I look like Zayn Malik.  I was walking around Verona. A lot of Montagues stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

this week's video

made me realize how thankful i am for these two boys. they are so full of love and positivity and take it upon themselves to try and share and spread that with us. grayson and ethan have been put through so much shit in their lives that they clearly do not deserve, but what they’ve learned and made out of it taught me to push harder through the tough times. they have helped me, and i’m sure a lot of you, in so many ways. but it wasn’t only them who have helped me, but this whole entire fandom as well. especially my Children Of God™ girls (who i’m too lazy to name at the moment. APPRECIATION POST FOR YOU BITCHES COMING SOON!)
without having this social media outlet, where people are actually willing to listen to my problems and support me going through hard times, i don’t know where i’d be right now. for some reason after watching this week’s video it’s really just hitting me how blessed i am to be apart of this fandom where we support two beautiful twin boys who do nothing but spread happiness. I’ll never be able to truly put in words how amazed i am to have met you all and be apart of this. i’m being sappy as fuck but it’s true. if you’ve read this entire thing then thank you, i just really wanted to get most of what i’m feeling off of my chest.
the part in the video where ethan talks about how important it is to travel because “when you see how big the world really is, you see how small your problems really are” just spoke volumes to me for some reason, and i guess inspired me to write this post. regardless, i’m so truly thankful and my heart is so full of love because of the twins and this beautiful fandom.
