Barba Questions

Have we all played ourselves with our speculation about Barba’s secret?

Has the fact the episode has been pushed back twice heightened our level of anticipation?

Will we be inevitably disappointed when it turns out to be unimportant? This was the “first” episode after Know It All, and nothing would suggest it. I don’t think they edited out that much stuf..

WAIT.

What if the chocolates were a gift from someone, to make Barba feel better after the events of Know It All? And that’s why the scene was cut?

You went to the bank and said, “You know that gigantic old haunted house on the moors? The one the dossers are too scared to doss in? The one the birds are too scared to fly over?” And then you said, “I’d like to buy it, please, with my money”?! Yes, I did, actually. That’s incredibly brave. 

  1. Set your priorities straight. As you’ve entered school, you know that your academics are basically one of your priorities, aside from your personal health. You are a student, after all. You should know that you should be making time for all the school work you’re supposed to be dealing with. If you’re having trouble with this, I suggest you write your priorities down, and rank them according to which one weighs the most. This will make you feel much more headstrong and goal-oriented.
  2. Use schedulers and planners. You’re human and it’s okay to forget things. Get digital with apps and programs or get traditional with notebooks and planners. Involve your planning with a combination of both. This really helps especially if you’ve created a system for remembering things more efficiently, eg. color-coding, bullet journaling, weekly overviews, having legends, etc., which leads us to the next point:
  3. Schedule in advance. Complete the difficult tasks, the easy tasks, the medium tasks. Do what you can. Set deadlines for yourself. If you’re fully aware that three weeks from now, you’ll have 3 exams in a day, start studying as early as possible. If you have to attend to an event and have an exam the day after, bring any study material with you. Do homework the day they’re given to you, especially if they’re fairly easy. If they need some research or data collection, make it a point that you do it after class or on the nearest weekend. Break the habit of doing something because a classmate has already started doing his/hers. Instead, do it for the motivation that you’ve set for yourself.
  4. Prevent causes of distraction. There are only 24 hours in a day, and a fraction of which we use for fulfilling our basic necessities. Utilize the remaining time for productivity. Delete social media apps if you have to, or turn off your internet. Better yet, turn off your phone and exchange phones with your roommate or your friend. Keep it. Forget about it for a moment. You can always leave your feed but it will never leave you. You can always return to it after you’ve done your work.
  5. Multi-task! I can never stress the importance of learning multi-tasking enough. Whenever I’m in a long meeting, I usually bring my laptop to review notes or write a paper. Of course, it would seem rude to some so it’s better if you would give them a heads-up. If I’m in a class I find easy and if the professor allows us to study or drift off, I usually study for other classes that I need more attention in. While I take showers, I discuss the exam material from my memory out loud. If you have to wait in line for some errand, bring a book. Sometimes while doing my night care routine, I would listen to audio recordings of my professor. Some of these examples may come off as rude or off-putting, I know. But that’s just me. You can always find other safer situations where you could practice multi-tasking.
  6. Now, not tomorrow. If you happen to finish a scheduled task and got a little free time, it gives you all the reason to do some of the things you have scheduled for other days. If you can do it now without any constraint, why would you choose to do it later?
  7. Ask for help. If a friend’s not too busy, don’t be afraid to ask for a little help! You can ask them favors of proofreading your essay. You can ask them about the notes that you didn’t take down of. You can ask them about how this certain professor’s exam types. The possibilities are endless. Just know the right people and places. Don’t dwell too much on tiny details. If you have misunderstood a certain topic, ask your roommate, ask the person next door. Go to the nearest library. Check the internet for answers. You can consult your teacher or professor. Don’t be afraid to ask for a little assistance. No man is an island.
  8. You have all the time on your hands. If you believe that you can do it, and if you really want to do it, you will. Taking up other commitments and responsibilities is never a problem, as long as you know you can handle them without sacrificing another. You are always allowed to say no. If you have as many organizations as me, remember that work should never get in the way of your priorities. Just keep in mind that everyone has their certain limits, and you do too.
  9. If all else fails, CLUTCH IT!! I’m not joking, I’ve done this multiple times. I came out alive but I have to admit that not all of my crammed output had the best marks (although some of them did!). If you don’t want to be in this heart-racing situation, then be as diligent as possible with your work! Make it a habit.

Always remember that these tips may or may not help anyone the same as it did with me, but I’m glad that I have this opportunity to get this out there. Find your rhythm. I know it takes time, but don’t stress yourself too much because all of your efforts will be successful. Some efforts may just be rewarded in ways that you didn’t plan to, while some just lead you nearer to your dreams. Just keep doing you, and you’ll get through this.

I believe in you.

It’s quite difficult.  The anguish of the man, the despair… pouring out of him.  All those feelings.  The regrets.  I can’t stop them.  I can’t stop them.  I can’t.  I can’t.
Don’t even try.

anonymous asked:

What would you recommend getting done in the first week of school (and the week before school starts sicee those days teachers don't really tell you what will be done and everything is just slack?

The preparation part was my favourite during my school years so here we go 

The Week Before School Starts

  1. wash your backpack if possible (don’t tumble dry!) 
  2. you can also wash your pencil case if needed
  3. if you haven’t bought your supplies yet, now’s the time!
  4. also try out your pens and pencils to see if they still work (if not, replace them if needed)
  5. sharpen your pencils
  6. clean your desk
  7. put all your old worksheets and things from last year into files 
  8. label your folders (your name, class name, year) and textbooks, calculator and everything that might get switched up in class 
  9. if you’ve messed up your sleeping schedule, use the last week to try and fix it so you don’t have to run on four hours of sleep on the first day of school
  10. have a look at the curriculum so you know what’s coming up in each subject
  11. if you’re going full-on hermione, have a sneaky look at the first chapter of your textbooks or revise briefly what you did before the holidays

The First Week of School 

  1. make copies of your schedule (one for the fridge, one for your desk, one for your bullet journal/calendar or for wherever you might need one) and memorise it, especially the rooms and break times
  2. if your school has one, get access to the online learning management system if you haven’t already
  3. get your books from the school library if you don’t need to buy them
  4. if you’re at a new school, learn where the rooms are as quickly as possible, especially the bathrooms, the gym, the cafeteria and the principal’s office (and your classrooms of course) – if you don’t know your way around, ask someone to show you everything!
  5. if you get homework, do it right away. don’t let procrastination sneak up on you in your first week already
  6. if you need special supplies for some classes and your teacher told you to buy them, buy them now (especially books because shipping may take a while)
  7. copy important dates into your calendar/bullet journal (deadlines, exams, holidays, school events, trips etc)
  8. if you’re in a new school/class, try to learn the names of your classmates (maybe not all of them, but your immediate neighbours and possible group work partners) or maybe even exchange numbers/open a group chat (might come in handy if one of you is absent or needs help with homework)
  9. if you’re returning to your old school and class, arrange to meet with your friends to catch up if you haven’t seen them during the holidays! it’s usually easier during the first two weeks because you won’t have as much homework
  10. you’ll likely be introduced to new topics in different subjects - pay attention!! those basics are really important and the next weeks’ worth of content will be based on them, and it’ll make things easier for you when you learn more advanced stuff later or when you study for exams. 

You don’t have to do all of that, those are just a few suggestions based on personal experience! I hope you’ll have a great start in school :) 

Joke(Mechanic!AU)
  • Sonic: I'm really pissed off about this repair bill
  • Genos: Better to be pissed off then pissed on
  • Sonic: *Narrows eyes* That wasn't even fun-
  • Genos: *holding up two engine pistons*
  • Saitama: *laughing hysterically in the background* Oh my god! I can't breath! I'm gonna pee my pants
  • Genos: well we could demonstrate the original reference of this joke
  • Sonic: I hate both of you
Muns For Charity

What are we?

This blog is created and managed by a community of artists and writers from the badly drawn/ask Yuri!!! on Ice fandom. We’ve banded together to take commissions to help raise money and awareness for various causes. The charities that we will be donating to are Planned Parenthood, Flint, Standing Rock, the Trevor Project, and United Muslim Relief. We have no plans to add any more for now as to maximize the amount we donate to each of them.

How can we commission a piece?

You may contact any of the artists at munsforcharity@gmail.com. When you commission anything, please put the name of the artist/writer in the subject. In the body of the email, please detail what you would like and what charity you would like your money to go to from our list of charities–or, we can choose one for you. You can find a list of who you can commission and their prices/what they are willing to draw here. Keep in mind that many of us have busy schedules so make sure that their commissions are open before you email us. After we work out the details and the artist agrees to take on the project, we will request that you donate the money and show us a receipt confirming the transaction. Once that’s done, they will begin working on your commission!

How can I be sure this is going to charity?

Rather than donating the money through us like we originally planned, we will instead have people who want to commission us to donate the required amount directly to an organization from our list! That way, you will be the ones making sure it gets to its destination!

One last thing

If you are interested in being a part of this project, and would like to participate in Muns for Charity, we encourage you to message us, and we will send you an invite to our Discord chat where we discuss information about the project.
