unconcentrated

Our culture leads to an unconcentrated and diffused mode of life, hardly paralleled anywhere else. You do many things at once; you read, listen to the radio, talk, smoke, eat, drink. You are the consumer with the open mouth, eager and ready to swallow everything - pictures, liquor, information. This lack of concentration is clearly shown in our difficulty in being alone with ourselves; …But as in so many other aspects, human values have become determined by economic values. Modern man thinks he loses something - time - when he does not do things quickly; yet he does not know what to do with the time he gains - except kill it.

[6/100 day of productivity] 2016.12.02

D-3 until the final term exam, 6H20M

I thought it was such an unproductive day, but it turns to be not… as I look around what I’ve done today. But I felt quite sleepy in the night study and I wasted too much time feeling sleepy and unconcentrative.

As I have not many days ahead, I am almost focusing on reviewing things… and I have reviewed Practical ethics, Chinese characters, Korean grammar, Math, English and so on, almost all subjects. And it took me quite a while.

It’s time to check myself on track…

Soccer!Calum (looong imagine)

my dear friend Elizabeth at anarchyaustralia isn’t feeling very well so I thought I’d write something for her and she kinda liked it so I’m sharing it with you guys here we go :)
(sorry for any typos) (this was hastily written on my phone)


Imagine soccer!calum, who’s your flatmate in college (and who has had a crush on you in forever but barely anyone knows that especially not you) coming home from practice being kinda done because he is so unconcentrated lately and the coach scolded him for that in front of the whole team today (and he’s captain so it’s twice as embarrassing) but as soon as he finds you curled up under like two blankets on the couch, a cold plate of mac'n'cheese on the coffee table and a can of tea that’s also almost cold now his face turns from frowning to worried and he rushes over wanting to see what’s wrong and you dive up from under the cocoon you’ve made and look at him with puffy eyes and a red nose and your voice sounds hoarse and raspy when you tell him that you got a terrible cold but you have finals next week (so has he, one of the resons he sucks at soccer lately) and you’re just totally desperate bc you’re behind in studying with almost all your subjects and then Calum shushes you and helps you get up and then he tells you tontke one of those special baths with that cough medicine thing he has seen somewhere in a cupboard and you nod and then he goes into the kitchen and heats up some chicken soup he finds in the fridge and manages to not burn the rice and then prepares your bedroom with fresh covers and sets down the soup on the bedside table and when he has made sure you’ve at least eaten half the bowl he goes back to the kitchen and makes fresh tea only to find you asleep when he comes to bring it to you.

Have you ever thought about that Sebastian Moran is the only person who gets to see Jim in the small ‘every-day’ situations? Not just as the business man he is, but he sees him unconcentrated and staring into the void for no good reason. Sebastian can watch him when he’s asleep and the few minutes of waking up in the morning, making tiny noises and being so very human. It’s not just the good sides, though. Sebastian knows when Jim’s at the end of his strength and fucking knows what do to, if not - he’ll find a way.

Jim Moriarty is such an unreachable person, for so many people not more than a myth and a whispered name. But then there’s Sebastian Moran, important enough for someone who’s probably never thought of having someone that close.

Hey there, I was just wondering where the whole double derek theory came from?

I’m not sure who first introduced the double Derek theory but it was a string of things that combined seem to lead to this conclusion…

(now i’m probably going to forget some things and mix others up because at this point i’m fairly unconcentrated and anxious about the finale, so if anyone has made a master post on this, please reblog and link us please or add to it  - thanx)

The first clue was in 4x01 when the gang is in Mexico looking for Derek. they learn that Kate was the one who took him and we get this shot of Kate in front of mysterious symbol
