up at 8 in the morning

I am a night shift manager at the Mart of Walls. We had a customer this morning at 5:30 am yelling at the ladies in bakery because there was no cashier to ring him up. My dude, the store isn't even open until 8. You're not supposed to be in here! Yes, there was a door that was left unlocked, but it was for the very same ladies you are yelling at to use because they start their shift at 5. No, that does not mean you are allowed to use it and "buy stuff early". GTFO or I'm calling the cops.

Double Trouble: Monday Mornings

I know, I know… too many Dad!Shawn imagines out there but I couldn’t help myself. This takes place somewhat in the future and the twins are in first grade! Hope you enjoy xx

“Okay, so school starts at 8:15.,” Jo says, applying her night cream, hair up in a messy bun, while Shawn is brushing his teeth at the sink next to her. “I have to leave at six tomorrow to catch my flight. You get the twins ready, make breakfast, put their lunch boxes into their little backpacks and drive them to school,” she glances at him and he nods, toothbrush dangling from the corner of his mouth.

I gosh dish.”

Jo laughs, not having understood a single word. "What?”

Shawn takes his toothbrush out, washing his mouth. “I got this,” he repeats confidently, putting the toothbrush away.

🍂 ☇ 07 | halloween prompts *:。

*pls do not send in any more requests, my pals!!*

➸ member: jeonghan.

➸ word count: 1300

phrase 8: if i get this, we go on a date + setting 3: a carnival

It’s not that Jeonghan hated Halloween, or that he even harboured a very infinitesimal disliking for the day, it was more or so he disliked the Halloween Carnival that came along with it.

Each October, during his morning promenades from the coffeehouse to his health sciences class, he saw them setting up for the carnival. First of all there were way too many pumpkins, either oblong, baring a pale glossy orange, or inexplicably round with burly stems and tresses of dark jade leaf. No matter what, there always existed a group of younger students who got beyond intoxicated off cinnamon ale and tried smashing the pumpkins on one another.

Great pleasure engulfed him when he sat on the sidelines, watching authorities scold the freshman as though they had the brain capacity of a walnut. Then Jeonghan would sip from his own beverage and endure the night that his friends forced him to be a part of. He had pockets fabricated with excuses, though they were very ineffectual when faced with his friends’ pleas.

I’m not going this year, Jeonghan concluded, knowing exactly what the conversation topic would be when Joshua waved him over, still in washed out blue scrubs from his earlier job shadow. There is nothing he can say that will make me go to this obnoxious festival.

“The carnival’s tonight.” Joshua hummed, letting the topic float in midair. He was picking at his salad with a plastic fork. Jeonghan nodded.


His friend swallowed. “[Y/N]’s going.”

The mood swiftly changed and Jeonghan felt his heartbeat in his fingertips. His words didn’t totter.

“What time should I show up?”

Animorphs #8: The Alien, Chapters 18-19

(Previous | Next)

Chapter 18

Oooh, Ax is starting off the day with a new and different stupid dramatic Andalite ritual.  Although the difference seems to be mostly on the surface; it still basically boils down to “I will get vengeance, my life and my honor belong to my people, blah blah.”  Different words, same song.

Tobias shows up, because that’s what he does in the mornings, because they’re friends and it’s beautiful and I have feelings about it.  Also because he’s being nosy, asking a bunch of questions about whether Ax is really going to try to kill Visser Three, and where and when it’s going to happen, and is Ax really sure he can’t bring himself to share the details and ask for help from the Animorphs?

Ax is scared and angry (at Tobias, at the other Andalites, at the world) and not exactly in a talking mood.  But he does drop the fact that Jake is currently his “prince” and he has to do what Jake says, so one of the reasons he’s not telling is that Jake might forbid him.  And Tobias also muses that Jake is probably his prince now, more or less, too.

That seems important, so let’s put a pin in that and probably come back to it.  (Although in addition to being probably plot-important it’s kiiiiinda squicky, like, let’s not mix up our friendships with our forced loyalty, it’s a little gross.)

Ax makes Tobias promise not to follow and not to tell anyone where he’s going, they have a not-particularly-cheerful parting, and Ax heads off at a run to the meadow where he’s been told V3 will be feeding.  He gets there early, so he has time to look over the area and plan how one young Andalite is going to take down a full-grown Andalite with Hork-Bajir guards.

Conveniently enough, he grabbed that rattlesnake morph earlier in the book, so once he’s used hoofprints to figure out where V3 likes to feed, he shrinks down into his rattlesnake morph and lies in wait in the grass.  The rattlesnake mind turns out to be probably a pretty good one in this situation: it’s a calm, fast predator with highly refined senses, that doesn’t have any ability to feel fear or loneliness.

Probably about as good as it’s going to get for Ax, who hunkers down in the grass and waits for V3 to appear so he can strike.

Chapter 19

Ax can’t see what’s going on when V3 lands, but he can hear him ordering his guards around, one to the tree line and others to the far end of the meadow.  This works well with Ax’s plan, which is basically: bite the shit out of V3 and then hope that the venom slows him down enough and the guards are far away enough that Ax will have time to demorph and kill V3 properly, before getting taken down by a Hork-Bajir.

Ax, buddy, that’s not a great plan.  Lot of “if”s there, and also a plan where you don’t die at the end would be better.  

It’s the plan we’ve got, though, so we launch into it as V3 comes galloping up and begins to feed.  Ax ponders how best to strike - and then gets betrayed by his own rattlesnake tail, which starts rattling on pure instinct, alerting V3 and leaving Ax no choice but to just get on with the biting already.

CHOMP, he goes, and then everything breaks down into chaos.

Ax slithers away as fast as he can, demorphing along the way.  V3 hollers for guards (although not immediately since it takes him a minute to figure out what’s going on, buying Ax some crucial time).   A Hork-Bajir comes charging at Ax and swings one of its awful blade-arm-things at him.

And then, just before it can take him down, a grizzly bear appears and smacks the fuck out of it. Because, of course, the Animorphs are here to save the day.  Rachel is taking down that Hork-Bajir, Jake is dropping out of a tree in tiger form to take down another, and Tobias circling overhead informs everyone that Cassie and Marco have the rest under control.

Rachel and Ax go heading off toward V3, with Tobias overhead bickering with Ax the entire way.  Ax is annoyed that Tobias told the others.  Tobias is smugly just like, “Hey, Jake is my prince and you told me we gotta do what the prince says, so when he wanted to know what you were up to, I told him.  Also my eyes are literally sharp as a hawk’s, so obviously I saw the note that Eslin the Disgruntled Yeerk gave you and knew where you would be.”

Ax has very few legs to stand on being pissy about this, and anyway is quickly distracted by seeing V3 wobble and fall over up ahead.  Ax gets about ten seconds to be excited about this - the venom is working!  And then, because these children can’t have nice things, Tobias immediately starts yelling and swooping down because actually, he can see that V3 in his Yeerk form just slithered out of the Andalite’s body and took off into the river, where even Tobias’ sharp eyes can’t see him underwater.

That just leaves Ax and Rachel standing helplessly over the gasping body of V3’s Andalite host, Alloran-Semitur-Corass, who starts begging to be killed. Because, you know, CHILDREN’S LITERATURE.  He knows that he won’t be able to escape - V3’s backup forces will be here any minute, they’ll save V3 and recapture the Andalite and there’s nothing much the kids can do against that much force.  He doesn’t want to be enslaved again, and in fact tries to kill himself with his own tail blade, but he’s too weak from the venom.

Ax is horrified but can’t bring himself to kill the Andalite.  (Which. Um. I have questions about.  He was going to kill the Andalite with the Yeerk in him, right?  Does the fact that he’s now Yeerkless really chance the calculus given that he’s asking for it, and he’s almost certainly right about being recaptured? I think Ax is making the wrong call here.  But I appreciate that this book wants me to stop and think about that.)

Before Ax and the Animorphs turn and leave Alloran to his probably-extremely-unpleasant fate, Ax asks for any orders that the senior Andalite might have for him.  Alloran wants him to send a message back to his family if Ax is able.  

Oh, and by the way, keep fighting the Yeerks, because they’ve infiltrated “the home world.”

But no more about that, because Alloran’s just passed out.

Welp. That’s also probably fine. Nothing to worry about at all, there.

But I do not close my eyes.

You burn so brightly I can still see you clearly behind my eyelids when my night falls because I live for your light and I cannot let you go, and even if I will turn blind I want you to be the last thing I’ll ever see, your hand clasped in mine.

A love letter to you from the Moon, from Dionysus, from Grantaire.

1/5 back to school 2017 masterposts

school is starting soon (or has already started) and i also wanted to somehow thank you guys for 7k in a way other than the usual blog rate or blog awards. keep a look out for the other 4!

this is a collab with @studyruels. his masterpost is on making an aftetschool routine which you can check out here!

now, i’m naturally a morning person. i just am, and i always have been. no matter how late i go to bed my body thinks it’s a great idea to noT sleep in and wake up at 6 am every day (’: here are a few things i do to make it a little easier and enjoy my mornings!

1. GO TO BED EARLY. this is honestly a no brainer but STOP SPENDING HOURS ON YOUR PHONE WTH like it’s so harmful for your eyes and your mind and your brain and your body will thank you in the morning when your eyes aren’t burning with exhaustion. 

1.a. when i decided to stop being an irresponsible smol child who tried to stay up every night, i started setting alarms for going to sleep. so like at 9:00 (ok ik thats pretty early but thats usually when i go to bed), or maybe that’ll be like 10:00 or 10:30 for you so that you can go to bed around 11. but anyways, when you hear this alarm, it’s time to get off of your phone or laptop (-: send your gn streaks and texts, close insta (log out if u have to), and shut it all down. soon after, you will start to notice how tired you actually are without all that blue light distracting you !!!

2. read! this is a personal favorite just because i’m a huge nerd but reading right before bed is just killing 2 birds with one stone: you’re exercising your mind and subconsciously improving your writing skills (vocabulary and grammar) while making yourself very tired!! if you think reading, especially at night, is boring, you aren’t reading the right books for you.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

3. prepare yourself for the morning so it seems less dreadful. OPEN YOUR BLINDS BEFORE BED JUST DO IT OMG you will wake up with the sun. do a little miniclean of your room before bed so you’re not waking up to yesterday’s disaster. make your coffee the night before and leave it in the fridge if you like it iced in the morning. plan out what you’re going to wear tomorrow, as well as your lunch. shower (so u sleep better and/or dont have to do it in the morning) and brush your teeth. pamper yourself. set up fairy lights. just do anything that will cause you to wake up and go “jeez glad i did that last night; now i have more time and peace of mind”. 

4. find something to look forward to in the morning. this might be going to get coffee or tea with a friend in the morning, getting to wear the cute outfit and eat the delicious lunch that you prepped last night, or remembering that you’re going to see a movie after school. whatever it may be, let it motivate you to get up and start your day as soon as possible. 

5. turn off/disable snooze. do it. if your alarm app can’t do this, install an app that can. i also like to set up my alarm so that i have to do some challenging mental math to turn it off. 

5.a. make your alarm something that will cause you to get up. it doesn’t necessarily have to be something really annoying. it can be something upbeat and light that puts you in a good mood for the day. however, if you’re a really heavy sleeper then you might want to make it some obnoxious and loud sound so that you will be motivated just to get out of bed and turn it off. 

6. put your phone across the room. we’ve all heard of this one but most of us are too lazy to do it. at night, when you whip out that book, log off all your social media and then put your phone somewhere so far that you’ll have to physically get out of bed and turn off the alarm.

7. make your bed suit your aesthetic. this derives from the basic “make your bed” tip. sure, you can make your bed, and sure, it might motivate you to not get back in. but if you really struggle with this, buy one of those prepackaged bed sets that has a nice color scheme. once you make your bed, you’re not going to want to ruin that aesthetic tbh

8. keep a consistent sleep schedule, even on the weekends!! i’m not saying you have to wake up at 6 am even on saturdays, but don’t go from waking up at 6 to waking up at 12. maybe push your wake up time to 8:30 or 9 latest on the weekends. as you get used to waking early (and sleeping early, too!) you can slowly push back your weekend wake up time earlier and earlier until it’s almost identical to the time you wake up when you have school.

i hope this helps! good luck with this school year, everyone!

Live Updates: 22 People Treated In Hospital After An IED Was Detonated On A London Tube Train
Police are treating the rush hour explosion as a terrorist incident.
By Matthew Champion, BuzzFeed News

What We Know So Far:

  • An explosion on a tube train at Parsons Green station in west London at 8:20am – the middle of the morning rush hour – has been declared a terrorist incident.
  • Police have confirmed the “detonation of an improvised explosive device” took place. It does not appear to have fully detonated, however. No-one has been arrested in connection with the incident.
  • At least 22 people are being treated in hospital following the incident, but no-one is thought to be in a serious or life-threatening condition. Police said most victims were suffering from “flash burns”.
  • Commuters described scenes of panic as passengers were caught up in the crush to leave the station.
  • Prime minister Theresa May has said her thoughts are with those injured and the emergency services responding, while London mayor Sadiq Khan urged Londoners to be vigilant. Both are attending a Cobra emergency meeting this afternoon.
  • US president Donald Trump appeared to claim on Twitter that the “loser terrorist” behind the attack was “in the sights of Scotland Yard”, but police in London have not disclosed this information publicly. A Met police spokesperson told BuzzFeed News the president’s tweets were “unhelpful”.
