What a V Route could mean...

Cheritz’s new route is listed as ‘Another Story’. If this is really our V route, it seems likely it is also in an alternate timeline. To me, the picture shown seems to be a younger version of V, so perhaps we meet and romance him early on. It makes the most sense because he’s already established with Rika in the current story, so this will allow us to forge a friendship/relationship with him before he meets and falls for her.

BUT IF THAT IS THE CASE.

The RFA will not exist, at least not under Rika’s leadership. What if we and V create a new foundation together? And, hopefully, we can still acquire the old RFA members into the new organization via alternative means.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?

V’s route doesn’t necessarily mean happiness for JUST V!

We could SAVE Saeran and Saeyoung, just like V and Rika did in the beginning. But we would save them without selfish motives. Saeran would NEVER be tortured and suffer in the cult. Saeyoung would get to stick with his brother AS HE PROMISED.

THE CHOI TWINS COULD BE HEALTHY AND HAPPY. TOGETHER.

(Also, will we befriend young Jumin???)

i. write a to-do list and prioritize it.

whether it be in an agenda book/planner, bullet journal, or your phone, you’ll need to write tasks down so you don’t forget and not have to backtrack! then, find a way to prioritize your tasks, typically i organize it by subject and then by urgency using stars to indicate how important it is. however, find a priority system that works for you the best and stick with it! once you do that, reorganize your to-do list in order of priority and you can start going down the list.

ii. know your constants.

constants are things that usually happen every day. constants include sleeping, eating, classes, extracurriculars, jobs, etc. write down all the times you have to do these things/want to do these things, so you can take it into account when scheduling other tasks. for instance, if you know that an extracurricular will keep you an extra hour away from home, organize ways to do your homework in school (i.e. at lunch) or know that you might have to sacrifice a task or two to keep yourself on schedule.

iii. be mindful of limits and events.

it’s okay to say “yes” to hang out with your friends and opportunities. but if you know it’ll feel more like a burden, if you have something important to study for, and ultimately if you’ll be more stressed out if you go — then say no. make sure that you can handle taking some time out if you say yes! when you add events that you say yes to, incorporate it into planning and treat it as a constant, because most likely that plan won’t change much in terms of time. appointments with doctors or dentists should also be treated like constants as well! (don’t let school consume you entirely but also hold yourself back if you know you need to study/prepare.)

iv. set specific times for each task & learn to adapt!

if you don’t tell yourself when to begin and when to end, you’ll never get to either place, and you won’t be as organized or as motivated to finish on time. think about how much time it will take you to complete a task, and give yourself at most a half hour extra–just in case something unforeseen comes into play, it won’t shift your entire schedule. write these times down next to the things on your list. set alarms if you want to! keep in mind that you’ll probably need to move tasks to the next day, so you’ll need to adapt accordingly.

make sure to check off tasks as you go so you know that you completed it. it’ll make you more productive seeing your progress too!

v. create study times.

try your best to organize regular studying time into your schedule. even if it’s just for an hour or two to brush up on one or two subjects, studying regularly will keep the information in your head. make sure to find room for extra time to study the subject you have the hardest time on. add more study time as you get closer to the date of a quiz/test/exam, too!

vi. use deadlines to your advantage.

always set deadlines two days early (or earlier). getting ahead of deadlines will help you relax in the end and procrastination won’t be as harsh. plus, it gives you more time to tweak an essay, practice a presentation, etc. if you have it done earlier — not to say that you shouldn’t have already done this prior to your created deadline! especially for projects or essays, try and break up tasks into even smaller tasks so you know the exact steps you need to take. for instance, instead of saying “Work on English essay,” split it into “Research for essay,” “Outline essay,” “Write intro paragraph,” etc., and make sure you have specific deadlines for those too so you don’t leave all those small tasks to the last minute.

vii. take a break!

if you don’t take breaks, you’ll end up burning out. even though school may seem in priority, you are always the number one priority. if you don’t feel well physically or mentally, then give yourself some time to relax. read a book, take a bath–whatever helps you destress. i always try and take a break for a half-hour in between long work sessions, and shorter breaks in between a couple of shorter tasks. sometimes, i use the pomodoro method! insert breaks into your schedule so you have some time to yourself. during one of these breaks, you can do something as simple as organizing your desk if it’s a mess to keep yourself productive and relieve some stress if a clean study space is required for you to be motivated and focused. you can also exercise, drink water, or get up and walk around a bit during these breaks too!

viii. get some sleep.

Sleep is important. The average teenager needs about nine hours of sleep, and in general, adults need seven to nine hours. Figure out when you want to wake up in the morning, and count back the hours. Try and start to unwind (stop doing work, get ready for bed) about a half an hour before you sleep. Read a book, check social media briefly–just something that lets you relax and eases you into sleep. Waking up, set a few sets of alarms to go off anywhere in 10-20 minute intervals, just in case you don’t wake up or to start waking you up sooner so you’re actually awake by the time you want to and your body is less drowsy.

ix. focus on the task.

- put a clock in front of you so you are aware of the time you’re spending! a calendar would also be useful to help visualize your deadlines.

- put your phone on airplane mode, do not disturb, turn it off, etc. and put it on the other side of the room so you can focus on the tasks at hand. personally, i use bluetooth headphones so i can listen to music from my phone while it’s away and so i don’t have to break out my laptop which is full of distractions.

- take note of how much time is lost due to deviating from a task so you realize what distracts you and how to remove yourself from those distractions.

- sit down with all the materials you’ll need for studying before beginning so you won’t interrupt your focus looking for a notebook.

good luck and get to work!

Hmm… The more I look at him, the more I hope he’s just some random new character.

And I don’t know how a “love” route with V would even work because they would have to gut the whole storyline…

Edit: So, I just looked at THE photo… This person is totally V.

Edit2:

OMG… You play as Rika falling in love with V and creating the RFA? I would be suuuper down with that.

I’m seeing this problem a lot right now, both in support pages for mental illness, in people, and online, especially on tumblr.

Y'all.

Depression and anxiety are actual problems that are being diagnosed more and more, you can feel alone and scared and isolated. But they are not the only mental illness out there. Depression and anxiety are still stigmatized and the people who have them are still called lazy and liars when it interferes with their daily lives. But it’s also rapidly becoming more socially acceptable to have them. A character or person in the media with anxiety or depression is seen a quirky and unique and someone to be saved with the right person comes along to show them the world and give them a meaning to live. A person with bipolar or schizophrenia or a personality disorder or any other ‘scary’ and misunderstood mental illness is a serial killer and that is clearly why they are commiting horrible acts. Not because they’re terrible human beings, but because they’re ‘dangerously mentally ill’ and can’t help themselves.

You wanna know what would help that problem? Actual education about the illnesses and representation. I’m sick of the focus on commonly accepted mental illnesses and not the ones that are also common and stigmatized. And I’m really sick of being treated like an outcast and criminal because people don’t understand that bipolar ≠ dangerous. More people are becoming educated on such disorders but it’s still a problem. I shouldn’t have to be given 'The Talk’ by my mother when a mass shooting occurs or a bombing takes place about how 'I need to control my emotions and not do something horrible to anyone because of your illness.’

You cannot post things like 'people with depression are v v v cute uwu’ and create lists on how to take care of themselves during a panic attack and then tell people that everyone with Borderline personality disorder is automatically abusive and should be avoided at all costs. You can support anxiety but you cannot compare people with schizophrenia to 'psychos that need to be medicated so they aren’t a danger to society.’ You can’t call people with DID liars about what they experience and ignore their symptoms because you consider it as made up for attention. That’s not how mental illness positivity works.

Mental illnesses that are considered scary and rarer than they are, are being swept under the rug and it isn’t helping it become accepted. It’s hurting the people that don’t see themselves represented and feel so ashamed of themselves that they would rather suffer through years of symptoms than seek help because they believe they will be ridiculed and cast out of their families and cultures. Advocate for mental illness, but make sure you advocate for ALL mental illness, even the ones that aren’t considered 'popular.’

doodled up a design idea for my soon-to-be candy kougra! they’re a jawbreaker i guess, with some of the candy stripes from the original neopets design? might end up changing the design a bit when i eventually make an Official Image but who knows, either way i think i like it! ovo

Remember when ichiruki was the base of bleach? And a lot of people were disappointed with the ending and non-shippers who are youtubers were disappointed that they didn't end up together? (Smh that was a wild ride)

remember when bleach ended and posts anti-bleach got 20k notes :’)

remember when the last volume got a 2 star rating :’)

remember when the ending caused massive dragging of kubo and bleach on all platforms and some IH’s were the only ones defending him (even WSJ threw him under the bus) :’)

remember when antis insisted that ichiruki was dead yet we continued to be even stronger :’)
