under $40

tips from a grocery store cashier:

  • group the produce, foods, and non-foods (especially chemicals) as you put them on the belt. it makes bagging things way easier.
  • yes, we know they’ve rearranged the store. we can’t find anything either.
  • we know you’ve been standing in line for (insert period of time). we’re going as fast as we can.
  • don’t tell us to open more lanes. if they’re closed, there’s a reason and that reason is probably that we don’t have enough cashiers on hand.
  • we stand for 4-10 hours a day repeating the same conversation over and over and over. forgive us if we forget whether or not we’ve asked about coupons already.
  • if you’re buying alcohol or cold medicine and look under 40, have your id out and ready to go.
  • for the sake of my admittedly slipping sanity, please do not remove your chip card before it makes the ungodly shrieking beep and tell you that you can remove it.
  • if it won’t scan, do not even start to think the word “free”

Handmade Gemstone Jewelry by My Luna Jewel

You might or might not know that my dad handcrafts gemstone and sterling silver jewelry. He puts a lot of time, love and effort into each piece but recently has had to put it on hold and going is on rest as he has found out he will need surgery sometime within the next few weeks. It would mean a lot if anyone could send some love his way by helping to support his store. This doesn’t mean you have to buy anything, but even just liking one item will help support it! My family and I would really appreciate it and if you do decide to make a purchase, you can even use LAP10 for 10% off your total! Thank you ♡

Edit: My family dog began bleeding copious amounts yesterday and we had to do a random vet visit, proceeds will also go towards paying that off (She has perfectly recovered). Thank you all for your support, it means a lot during these times. 

psa for the yoi fandom: russian names & how to use them

Russian guides: masterpost | patronyms | terms of affection | answered asks

I’m going to start by swearing this isn’t me just complaining but a general resource for the Yuri on Ice fandom because I’ve noticed some mistakes in the naming conventions used among the fandom and want to help correct them. Especially in how the fandom treats diminutives. I absolutely love seeing the huge amount of interest in Russian diminutives, etc. in fanart and fics and hopefully this breakdown will help continue that trend and interest and even spur some more ideas in fandom content.

So let’s go through some important details below the cut!

so you’re taking a philosophy class... now what?

Philosophy is intimidating. You probably think of Pluto and Socrates, and while they are a part of philosophy, there is so much more to it. The subject is foreign and hard for many, but once you get the hang of it, it can easily become one of your favorite classes. Here’s some tips to make these classes a bit easier:

What the flippidy-doo-da even is philosophy???

Philosophy is the study of why. Ethics, morality, reasoning, all fall under philosophy. There’s a bunch of sub-topics in philosophy, like hedonism (what determines what is good for us?), relativism (why do we have different morals from someone else?), morality (what is the difference between right and wrong?), and more!

What makes a philosophy class different from any other class?

In philosophy there is no right or wrong answer. Everything is relative, subjective, and opinionated. The answer is never “yes” or “no”. Philosophy is essentially a lot of questions, but not many answers.

What can I expect in a philosophy class?

Socratic. Seminars. They are everywhere in philosophy classes. These are very similar to debates in the sense that its a group/the whole class talking about a subject, but you’re not trying to persuade anyone or change anyone’s mind, you’re simply talking about it. In college, philosophy classes tend to be smaller (under 40 people) for this reason. But don’t let the idea of a Socratic seminar scare you away from taking a philosophy class. They aren’t that bad. Why? Because there is no right or wrong answer. You don’t have to worry about saying something wrong or sounding stupid because literally you can’t say anything wrong. And if the idea of talking to other stresses you out, just remember that your fellow class mates are in the same exact position as you are. 

What can I do to *succeed* in a philosophy class?

Know your argument. Typically in philosophy there are three “arguments” (similar to a debate…ish). The for, the against, and the somewhere in the middle. On all of my philosophy tests, all of the questions are the same. exact. thing. Here’s an example from my last philosophy exam:

What is Hedonism?

What is an argument for Hedonism?

What is an argument against Hedonism?

What is your opinion on Hedonism?

You need to know of both sides of an argument, but other than that, there’s no memorization. It’s all explaining and why. You’ll learn very quickly how do BS a paragraph.

Also, Crash Course - Philosophy will become your best friend in the world.

Types of people who would especially love philosophy classes:

- Like writing, debates, and is opinionated

- ENTJ, ESTP, ISFP, ENTP, INFJ, INTP

- Aquarius, Leo, Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces

“Everything about this woman was both hard yet soft, delicate yet bold, wild yet calm. She was a storm that called to Cassian; it beckoned him into its grasp. A storm that he didn’t want to avoid anymore. He wanted to give in to the urges that pulled him to Nesta and he wanted her to do the same. So he let go of all pretense, closed his eyes, and leaned in to finally, finally, kiss the catastrophically beautiful woman below him.”

I recently just finished my first 18th century upper class dress, and just in time for bastille day with friends! 

I was very fortunate and was able to get the fabric and notions all together under $40 at a craft sale. The dress is made of real silk and the most expensive item was the feathers! I had to get creative since I only had so much fabric but I am very pleased. We had such a great time and i cant wait to work on my next projects

Imagine Steve and Tony bonding when Tony learns about Bucky and Steve fixing up steves first bike way back when, and takes him to the shop to show him the cars he's revamped

“I don’t often admit to being wrong, but I have to say Cap, I was wrong about you.  I didn’t realize you knew so much about your bike.”

Steve looks up from his place on the concrete next to his motorcycle, fingers grease-stained and a myriad of tools on a cloth beside him.

“Turns out I’m more than a showgirl.  Who knew.”  

“I should’ve known, it’s not like you always had access to a mechanic in the war.” 

“No.  And we made a lot of…adjustments, with Dernier’s help.”

“I’ve seen some of the footage.  Shot flames and everything.”

A wistful grin crossed Steve’s face.  “Yeah.” 

Tony pondered Steve for several long moments before nodding once decisively.  “That settles it.”

“What?”

“You know what you’re doing and you just admitted how much you like explosions.  Come on. I need another pair of hands in my shop and I want to show off what I’ve done to someone who’s going to appreciate it.” 

Steve paused, gauging Tony’s expression and when he found nothing facetious in it, he hurried to clean up the space around his bike.

“That’d – that’d be real nice, Tony.  Thanks.  I haven’t worked in a shop since-“

“The war?”

“Before.  I couldn’t do much and when I couldn’t get a job illustrating, there was a mechanic shop down the street that would give me the small stuff to tinker with.  I had the smallest fingers and I could fix some of the more delicate stuff.”

Tony’s smile got wider.  “JARVIS.  Give Cap access to the garage.  He’s gonna need it.”  Tony had a mischievous glint in his eye.  “I have an antique that I could use your expertise on.”

407 w connor!!

thank you, nonny! i’m assuming this is a reader insert (since that’s the only thing that makes sense, i guess?), if that’s cool! if not, feel free to shoot me another ask!

( 407. “My friend bet me 20 bucks that I wouldn’t walk up to a random underclassman and ask them to senior prom and I’m about to be 20 dollars richer and, no, that doesn’t invalidate the question, you’re actually really cute”  )

        Connor was used to Jared’s shit. Jared was the guy who would come up with stupid bets from time to time for the little circle of friends and was always willing to throw down cash for them, and almost always targeted Connor for his bullshit. But this. This was different. It all began with the group sitting around at lunch, all discussing plans about what they’d be doing from prom. And as if on cue, Jared swung his head and looked in Connor’s direction the second that he had considered leaving the table.

        “So who are you taking?” He asked, head resting in his hand as he eagerly waited for Connor’s response with a badly suppressed smirk. He had a plan.

        “No one. I’m not going.”
