How to Write for Scholarships

Writing for scholarships (including statements and essays) can be kind of a pain. There are countless scholarships and each has their own requirements and essay grading criteria. But if you put the work in and take the time to really rock it, there could be tons of money in it for you. Here are some tips that’ll help you nail writing for scholarships.

Write About Things You’re Involved With
Clubs, athletics, and volunteer work—any organized activity you do outside your schoolwork is fair game. It shows that you’re well-rounded and dedicated to not just your studies, but a bunch of other cool stuff.

Write About Obstacles You’ve Overcome
Write about where you come from and how got to where you are now. “Perseverance in the face of adversity” is a phrase people like, so show how you’ve displayed perseverance in your life.

Talk About What You’ll Do with Your Education
Give them a reason to give you money. Show the scholarship-granter that the money they invest in you will be well spent.

Keep It Short and Dense
Like brownie. It’s delicious and satisfying and it doesn’t take too long to eat. Do the same with your writing. Just don’t eat it.

Write Multiple Drafts
Your best essay will likely not be your first one. So rewrite a couple of times. You’ll find errors to fix and better ways to word things. 

Get a Second Opinion
Get your friends, teachers, parents, older siblings, pets, etc. to read your writing and provide their opinion. They might have an insight or two that you hadn’t thought of.

Toot Your Own Horn
Brag! This is your time to sell yourself to the scholarship-granter. Prove to them that you’re a good investment and you’ll put their money to good use.

Hate it or Love it: 50 quotes from MLK that white people can use besides ‘hate cannot drive out hate’

Every year around Martin Luther King Jr. Day everyone likes to drop an inspirational quote from Dr. King. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a multifaceted philosopher and an amazing orator with a plethora of accessible speeches, sermons and books; yet, somewhere along the way it seems as if a rule was created, restricting white people to one quote in particular:

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

I don’t know the reason behind the restriction; perhaps because this is one of the better quotes to try to push the “I don’t see color; we’re one race – the human race” agenda. Or perhaps the darkness and the light can be used to represent black and white and thus play into the white savior movement. Whatever the reason may be! BlackHistoryDay.tumblr.com is here today to give you 50 quotes from Dr. King that I encourage you to keep in mind for your future references:

1. “No movement of essentially revolutionary quality can be neat and tidy.”

2. “The only answer that one can give to those who would question the readiness of the Negro for integration is that the standards of the Negro lag behind at times not because of an inherent inferiority, but because of the fact that segregation and discrimination do exist.” 

3. “There is no more torturous logic than to use the tragic effects of segregation as an argument for its continuation.”

4. “It is one of the ironies of history that in a nation founded on the principle that all men are created equal, we’re still arguing over whether the color of a man’s skin determines the content of his character.”

5. “There comes a time, my friends, when people get tired of being plunged across the abyss of humiliation, where they experience the bleakness of nagging despair. There comes a time when people get tired of being pushed out of the glittering sunlight of life’s July and left standing amid the piercing chill of an alpine November.”

6. “There are some things that we’ve got to learn to sacrifice for. And we’ve got to come to the point that we are determined not to accept a lot of things that we have been accepting in the past.” 

7. “We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality…”

8. “We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation and militarism are all tied together… you can’t really get rid of one without getting rid of the others… the whole structure of American life must be changed. America is a hypocritical nation and [we] must put [our] own house in order.”

9. “What good is having the right to sit at a lunch counter if you can’t afford to buy a hamburger?” 

10. “Increasingly, by choice or by accident, this is the role our nation has taken, the role of those who make peaceful revolution impossible by refusing to give up the privileges and the pleasures that come from the immense profits of overseas investments.”

11. “If we will but make the right choice, we will be able to speed up the day, all over America and all over the world, when justice will roll down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

12. “That the poor white has been put into this position, where through blindness and prejudice, he is forced to support his oppressors. And the only thing he has going for him is the false feeling that he’s superior because his skin is white—and can’t hardly eat and make his ends meet week in and week out.” 

13. “Through our scientific and technological developments we have lifted our heads to the skies, and yet our feet are still firmly planted in the muck of barbarism and racial hatred. Indeed this is America’s chief moral dilemma.”

14. “To keep a group of people confined to nasty slums and dirty hovels is not a State Right, but a State Wrong.”

15. “It may be true that morals cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated.”

16. “It may be true that laws and federal action cannot change bad internal attitudes, but they can control the external effects of those internal attitudes.”

17. “The law may not be able to make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me.”

18. “Even this nation came into being with a massive act of law breaking; for what implied more civil disobedience than the Boston tea party…there’s nothing new about law breaking.”

19. “God has brought us here for this hour to tell us to save America because our white brothers is carrying it more and more to destruction and damnation.”

20. “We’re called to do it so that means we can’t stop. This should make us more determined than ever before.”

21. “Now they always tell us to cool off and I know that when you get people cooling off too much they will end up in a deep freeze. They tell us to slow up and some of them even say that the Negros in Albany out to go home and be quiet because there’s a political campaign going on and you may help elect some particular candidate that shouldn’t be in office. Well I don’t know if you have an answer for them and I don‘t know if I have an absolute answer but I want to say to those who are telling us to stop merely because a political campaign is going on that this is a moral issue for us. We’re moving on towards freedom’s land. We cannot stop our legitimate aspirations for freedom merely because some immoral person will use this for his own political aggrandizements…”

22. “We worked in this very nation 2 centuries without wages. We made cotton king; we built our homes and the homes of our masters in the midst of injustice and exploitation. Yet out of a bottomless vitality we continue to grow and to live and if the inexpressible cruelties of slavery didn’t stop us, the opposition that we now face cannot stop us.”

23. “The absence of brutality and unregenerate evil is not the presence of justice.”

24. “As the nation passes from opposing extremist behavior to the deeper and more pervasive elements of equality, white america reaffirms its bonds to the status quo.”

25. “Whites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar mass effort to reeducate themselves out of their racial ignorance.”

26. “It is an aspect of their sense of superiority that the white people of America believe they have so little to learn.”

27. “To find the origins of the Negro problem we must turn to the white man’s problem.”

28. “It seems to be a fact of life that human beings cannot continue to do wrong without eventually reaching out for some rationalization to clothe their acts in the garments of righteousness.”

29. “The greatest blasphemy of the whole ugly process was that the white man ended up making God his partner in the exploitation of the Negro.”

30. “Just as the ambivalence of white Americans grows out of their oppressor status, the predicament of Negro Americans grows out of their oppressed status.”

31. “Negroes have grown accustomed now to hearing unfeeling and insensitive whites say: ‘other immigrant groups such as the Irish, the Jews and the Italians started out with similar handicaps, and yet they made it. Why haven’t the Negroes done the same?’ These questioners refuse to see that the situation of other immigrant groups a hundred years ago and the situation of the Negro today cannot be usefully compared.”

32. “The Negro was crushed, battered and brutalized, but he never gave up. He proves again that life is stronger than death.”

33. “A riot is at bottom the language of the unheard. It is the desperate, suicidal cry of one who is so fed up with the powerlessness of his cave existence that he asserts that he would rather be dead than ignored.”

34. “What is needed today on the part of white America is a committed altruism which recognizes this truth.”

35. “True altruism is more than the capacity to pity; it is the capacity to empathize. Pity is feeling sorry for someone; empathy is feeling sorry with someone. Empathy is fellow feeling for the person in need— his pain, agony and burdens.” 

36. “I can never be who I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the way our world is made.”

37. “True education helps us on the one hand to know truth, but more than that it helps us to love truth and sacrifice for it. It gives us not only knowledge, which is power, but wisdom, which is control.”

38. “If you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, walk; if you can’t walk, crawl; but by all means keep moving.”

39. “We will move out of these mountains that have so often impeded our progress, the mountain of moral and ethical relativism, the mountain of practical materialism, the mountain of corroding hatred, bitterness and violence, and the mountain of racial segregation.”

40. “…Always have faith in the possibility of getting over to the Promised Land. Don’t become a pessimist and feel that we cannot get there; it is difficult sometimes, it is hard sometimes, but always have faith that the Promised Land can be achieved and that we can possess this land of brotherhood and peace and understanding.”

41. “An individual who is not concerned about his selfhood and his freedom is at that moment committing moral and spiritual suicide…”

42. “But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.”

43. “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

44. “Many people fear nothing more terribly than to take a position which stands out sharply and clearly from the prevailing opinion.”

45. “Many sincere white people in the south privately oppose segregation and discrimination, but they are apprehensive lest they be publicly condemned.”

46. “’Do not conform’ is difficult advice in a generation when crowd pressures have unconsciously conditioned our minds and feet to move to the rhythmic drum beat of the status quo.”

47. “This tragic attempt to give moral sanction to an economically profitable system gave birth to the doctrine of white supremacy.”

48. “Unlike physical blindness that is usually inflicted upon individuals as a result of natural forces beyond their control, intellectual and moral blindness is a dilemma which man inflicts upon himself by his tragic misuse of freedom and his failure to use his mind to its fullest capacity.”

49. “Only through the bringing together of head and heart-intelligence and goodness shall man rise to a fulfillment of his true nature.”

50. “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

Enjoy.

anonymous asked:

Is there a difference between dresstights and stockings. I'm cosplaying a character that has a lot of thigh and booty exposure and last thing I want is a complete wardrobe malfunction. What did you use when you did your Miku Append cosplay?

Usually, unles I’m wrong, stockings to me usually mean thigh highs? 

Dresstights or panythose are full waisted?

But the actuall DIFFERENCE between the two is the SEAM. Most pantyhose have a shaper seam on the upper thigh, dance tights DONT, so it looks more natural/invisible. They are also arguably more durable. 

There are some pantyhose with no seam of course, and you can usually find em anywhere. I got some at cvs. But heres a dance tights link anyways.

For my miku append, I used not only tights, but also BUTT GLUE so I was garuanteed no malfunctions. I used the butt glue on my boobies too.

WHAT DO YOU THINK

Rain is a Good Thing (DeanxReader)

Originally posted by littleblondesamoan

Prompt: Imagine laying in the backseat of the Impala listening to a thunderstorm with Dean.

Pairing: DeanxReader


“Y/n, darlin’ wake up.” I heard as Dean tried to pull me from my sleep. I groaned softly rolling away the hands that were laid gently on my right side. He chuckled deeply causing me to involuntarily smile as I opened my eyes and turned back to look at him.

“Ahh there she is.” He said quietly reaching his hand out his fingers ghosting over my cheek. I chuckled blushing under his loving gaze. “Here I am.” I said softly as I yawned. “As much as I love waking up to those green eyes of yours, why did you wake me up?” I asked him as my eyes glued themselves to his.

He smiled down at me. “Oh really just my eyes nothing else?” He questioned raising an eyebrow. I sat up chuckling gently pecking him on the lips as I moved to slide out of the bed shuffling over to my bag that laid near the main door of the hotel room. “Where’s Sam?” I asked realizing that the Moose wasn’t anywhere in the room.

Dean shifted on the bed and put his feet flat on the ground resting his elbows on his thighs leaning on them as he watched me move around the room throwing my bag on Sam’s empty bed as I rifled through it looking for something to wear. “He left about ten minutes ago to go get some breakfast.” I nodded and pulled out an old and faded AC/DC tee and a pair of dark blue skinny jeans. 

I changed quickly before I finally turned my attention back to Dean finding him looking at me with a smirk gracing his handsome face. I rolled my eyes shoving my dirty clothes into my bag. “What?” I asked sitting down on Sam’s bed shoving my socks onto my feet. Dean shrugged his eyebrows raising as he held held up his hands in defense. “I’m not saying anything Sweetheart.” He defended chuckling at my reaction.

I smiled and went to say something when the front door swung open causing both Dean and I looked over to see Sam standing there  soaked head to toe. My hand flew to my mouth in an attempt to cover the laugh that was threatening to fly from my mouth, Dean however made no attempts to control himself as he immediately burst out laughing causing Sam to shot him a glare as he moved into the room slamming the door behind him.

“It’s not funny Dean.” Sam hissed setting the bags of food down on the wooden table. Dean still laughing quite loudly nodded making me grin. “It is pretty funny Sam.” I said chuckling a little as I said it. Sam moved his glare to me before grinning taking the keys to the Impala out of his pocket gaining Dean’s attention as the man quickly stopped laughing. Sam smirked as he rushed to the door throwing the keys out of the room into the parking lot.

Dean gasped loudly jumping from the bed rushing out the door as Sam gently but firmly forced me out the door slamming it and locking it behind me. My heart sank slightly as I began pounding on the door. “Sam come on open the door.” I yelled over the sound of the heavy rain and thunder sounding above me. I groaned when I didn’t receive a response. “He locked the door?” Dean asked as he ran over his hair soaked and laying against his forehead.

I nodded glaring at the door before I turned it on Dean. “You had to laugh.” I growled as I reached out my hands running over the front pockets of his jeans causing him to jump. “Woah I don’t think right now is the time, I mean unles…” I glared at him cutting him off before he could finish the end of his sentence. “You didn’t grab a key did you?” I asked already knowing the answer as I pinched the bridge of my nose. He pouted shaking his head as he watched me racking his brain for something that could remedy the situation.

“I have an idea though.” Dean said a smile finding his lips. “Idea?” I questioned tilting my head before yelping when his hand shot out grabbing mine. “What’s the plan?” I asked as he dragged me to the Impala. He opened the back door shuffling inside with me following quickly behind him closing the heavy car door behind us as he moved to settle against the other door facing me. “This is the idea, we’ll stay in here until Sam calms down and gets all worried and guilty and lets us back into the room.” He said in a cocky matter-of-fact tone.

I shook my head but sighed in defeat moving to sit in his lap his arms wrapping around me. “Well you can’t be wrong all the time.” I teased. He gasped and looked down at me a look of mock hurt plastered on his face. “Hey I’ve had some pretty good ideas over the years.” I laughed nodding my head in agreement. “I guess you have a point.” I said causing him to grin. I rolled my eyes and leaned forward to nuzzle into the crock of his neck. It was silent for the next  few minutes as we listened to the heavy rain against the top of the car and the occasional boom of thunder, finding the sound oddly relaxing.

“Maybe this isn’t so bad.” I whispered my words coming out slurred in my drowsy state. Dean hummed in agreement his breathing already slowing as he fell asleep. I smiled curling against him further “I love you.” I whispered to him as I closed my eyes letting the sounds of the rain and Dean’s heartbeat lull me back to sleep.

Ask and you shall receive I guess. ;)

Lilo future!fic, in which both are single, Liam’s got two kids, and I end up calling Liam’s first-born “James” because the fucker still hasn’t shared his actual baby’s name with us.


Liam was in over his head. He knew it, and it only served to annoy him further. This was stupid. He was a grown-ass man. He had kids for Christ’s sake!

There was absolutely no reason for him to angst over the meaning of a bloody text message.

Especially not one that said, Im not gonna comment until Ive tried it myself.

Louis had added the sunglasses emoji at the end, which was nice but didn’t help Liam figure out whether he was serious or not.

And knowing whether Louis was serious or not felt quite bloody important, considering the message Liam had sent him right before had been: Then she said i was lousy in bed, like, can you believe?!

Liam took a deep breath and closed his eyes.

How to Make Your Senior Pictures Awesome

Senior pictures are pretty important (at least for your parents), but it can be hard to think of original ideas. So we thought we’d take you through the world of clichéd senior picture ideas and what you can do to spice them up.

Cliché: Sit in places you shouldn’t

There are tons of senior pictures taken in the middle of the road or on railroad tracks. I guess part of taking your senior pictures is tempting fate.  

Spice it up: Show off your hobby

Painting, writing, gaming, crocheting, etc. Showing off your biggest hobby or creative endeavor is the best way to express yourself.


Cliché: Get friendly with trees.

Something about senior pictures brings out peoples’ inner tree-hugger.

Spice it up: Get your instrument involved.

Instruments can get cliché too (guitar and railroad track anyone?), but it’s an important part of who you are and what you do. Probably a bit more important than trees anyways.


Cliché: Stand in front of something rustic.

Old barns, 60 year old tractors, partially painted fences, …dumpsters. Old and rusty things tend to be pretty popular settings for senior pictures.

Spice it up: Sports!

Sports are a huge part of high school life and it’s important to show that. Get suited up, go out to the field, and maybe get your teammates in on it too.


Cliché: Do awkward things with your hands

I call this hand position “limp-fish-on-head.” I don’t know what the purpose of it is, but do a Google search for senior pictures and it’ll pop up.

Spice it up: Hold up signs.

But have a little fun with it. Instead of the “Seniors 2016” route, say something funny or send a message to your future self.


Most of all: Be yourself and have fun!

Senior pictures are meant to be at time capsule to show who you are as you begin your senior year. It’s a snapshot of yourself at a big crossroads in your life. Everything will change for you in the coming year or two. So relax, be yourself and have some fun so you and your family can remember the way you were.

Naughty & Nice Valentines Day AUs (Part 1)

NICE

♡  I brought your coffee on Valentines morning even, at least walk and talk with me

♡  Beautiful stranger conveniently leaves their phone on the bus, I must find them

♡ We’ve been in a long distance relationship for a year now and have never met in person, tonight I’m going to surprise you by turning up on your doorstep

I’ve been leaving gifts in your locker all week. Why won’t you notice me?

♡ You’re girlfriend/boyfriend’s a douche and because I love you so much as a friend, I’m going to show you what a real Valentines Day should be like.

♡ Your my best friend’s sister but I overheard you talking to your girl friend’s about your perfect Valentines Day, so I’m going to do that for you.


♡ We’ve waited for our first Valentines Day to finally sleep together, now it’s come, we’re both super awkward and nervous and we’re just stuttering our way through this date before we go back to my place.


♡ I’m a famous superstar, you’re a groupie/dedicated fan. Little do you know, you’re all I think about.

♡ It’s Valentines Day and I’ve found you crying on a park bench. You can shout and call me a creepy stranger all you want but I won’t leave until you’re okay.

♡ It’s Valentines Day and I’ve argued with my girlfriend/boyfriend again. Now I’m banging on your door, singing “All By Myself” at the top of my lungs and I just really need you right now.

♡ You’re my ex and your boyfriend is about to propose to you at the restaurant I work at but I loved you first, so I’m going to do everything I can to stop it.

 
♡ I completely forgot it was Valentines Day but I told you I had something elaborate planned, so I’m totally winging this date that we’re on right now. I hope you’re buying it.

♡ We’re both single parents and my kid has invited yours over for a sleepover. You’re here to drop them off and hey, do you want to come in for a coffee? You’re actually a really sweet person. Want another coffee? Wow you’re attractive. How about we open a bottle of win? Oh my, you’re so interesting. Let me refill your glass. Oh god, is that the time already.

NAUGHTY

♡  We’re not even at the back of this packed out movie theatre, but I’m going to kiss and touch you everywhere anyway

♡  You’re at my sisters “Anti-Valentines Day” sleepover, yet here you are hanging out with me in my bedroom…alone…at 2 O'clock in the morning…

♡ I’m on a girls holiday, you’re on a guys holiday, we met drunk in a bar and decided to get married…So, I guess we should spend Valentines day together?

♡ I saw you walk into the restaurant with your girlfriend/boyfriend whilst I was pretending to listen to my girlfriend/boyfriend talk about themselves again. You’re hot. Meet you in the parking lot in half an hour?

♡ I came to this nightclub to forget about the fact that I’m alone on Valentines Day, and you dancing on me like that is making it so hard to do that right now. How dare you. Don’t leave, though.

♡ Me and my girlfriend booked a romantic stay at a five 5* hotel for our Valentines weekend. Too bad I’m starting to like the look of the receptionist in the lobby a lot more.

♡ Me and my girlfriend sat next to you and your boyfriend at this outdoor movie theatre, when will they notice that I have my hand on your thigh?


♡ I told my husband/wife I was away on business this weekend so keep it down, because I’m really in the apartment below having sex with a man/woman whose husband/wife really IS away on business.


♡ Excuse me boyfriend’s best friend, I need you to come underwear shopping and tell me which set he’d find hottest. Oh, can you also come and help me unclip this bra though? I think the clasp is stuck…What do you mean am I flirting with you? Don’t be silly. Why is it working?


♡ Did you seriously just knock on my door and introduced yourself to my parents as my girlfriend/boyfriend? Now I’ve got no choice but to spend the entire night with you…and I hate your guts. Why? Because I thought you hated mine too.

♡ Tomorrow is Valentines Day and I’m finally getting married to my girlfriend/boyfriend. That’s if they don’t find out that instead of having a hen/stag night I’m taking you on one last date before I commit to them…

 
♡ We’re both interns who were dragged away on business from our partners on the most romantic day of the year. It’s not like they’d know if I took you out on a date tonight, right? There’s no strings attached - I doubt we’ll ever even see each other again. Wait – What do you mean you’re not an intern, but my bosses daughter? 

♡ Yes, I’m single on Valentines Day. Yes, I’m spending it at Disneyland with my Mum, Dad, younger siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles and every other person still alive on our family tree – but how many people can say they’ve made out with Tinkerbelle/Peter Pan/Prince Charming/Cinderella etc. in a public bathroom?
