weekends will be catching up days!

hi, you've ruined me. i've been following your andy stories for a while but i fell behind so i spent the other day catching up on them which lead to spending all day today reading the maida and luis stuff and!!! i love it all so much!!!! they're so great!!!! (i have finals to get ready for but i spent so much of this weekend thinking about your amazing ocs (and i have no regrets)!!!)


Sometimes having OCs is like moving from a group LARP to playing with barbies in your corner yourself and it’s kind of sad, so people appreciating them is AMAZING, thank you!  Andy and Maida are definitely my loves. (Ironically I’m the most like Luis, the one people “can’t really get a feel for”. Which says something about me and how introverted I am I guess. XP)

The very next sentence in my current WIP is about Maida picking Andy up at the airport!

…Oh oops, except for the fic I started while I was cooking dinner. In the stream Ngozi let loose 0.5 facts about one of Kent’s teammates, and I have currently half-developed him and given him a girlfriend, whom I now know 10,000 things about. :D So that might be coming out sometime too, especially if we see any of this character in the updates in a couple weeks.

(I mean really, in a male-centric fandom like this, you kinda have to put up with het fic to get women on the scene sometimes. And hey, it ends up contributing to the romance genre’s massive labour of getting women to raise their fucking standards for men as romantic partners. And I just read Cat Person by Kristen Roupenian, about a girl who works way too hard to make a date with an insecure guy work out, and am feeling very strongly that we all need to raise our fucking standards.)

for a lot of us, it seems nearly impossible to find a balance between our grades and our health. i’ve created a list of tips and resources for managing classwork as well as mental illness. i tried to be inclusive of depression and anxiety as well as other disorders like adhd and bipolar. (i’d like to be more inclusive of others, but i couldn’t find a lot of resources and wasn’t sure what would help aaaa)

please let me know if you have anything to add, and i hope this post can help you out in some way c:

while studying

  • create a routine, and do your best to stick to it. having a consistent schedule can be a struggle, especially when dealing with long days of class or difficulties with sleep. try something more open-ended and flexible if you can’t manage specific times. (studying for an hour in the morning and before bed vs studying at 8 am and 10 pm)
  • start with your favourite subject. there are a lot of suggestions on how to start a study session (and they usually conflict it seems), but i’ve found that this works best for me. your favourite subject may be easy or difficult, but by starting with it, you get in the groove of studying and won’t get burnt out as quickly, giving you more energy to do your other work.
  • don’t take on more than what you can handle. if you’re feeling motivated, great! get as much done as you can! but on the bad days, just do what you can. there are times where it seems nearly impossible to get anything done, but still try to make the most out of each day and do what you’re able to so you don’t fall far behind. do what you can, when you can. don’t overwork yourself so much.

during class

  • take notes. for me, the easiest way to lose track during a class is if i don’t write or doodle. even if the material doesn’t seem important, write it down! it may be useful later, and it’ll keep your mind from wandering during lecture. (that being said, don’t always write things exactly as the teacher says; putting it into your own words can make it easier to remember and understand)
  • record lecture audio. if you can’t copy everything down in time, or if for whatever reason you need to know something verbatim, then you’ll have something to listen to again later.
  • take pics of what the instructor writes on the board. similar to the above tip, you can refer back to the pictures you took. just don’t forget about them! write yourself a note or make an alarm on your phone to remind you that there’s more material to review. don’t be the kid who takes pictures during the whole lecture but never writes anything, that kid’s obnoxious and gets bad grades
  • stay focused. i fidget a lot with my hands and feet, especially during a long lecture or study session. i find that keeping my hand on my pen/pencil is the simplest way to keep my mind on track, but fidget toys may help you as well. most teachers and students are fine with it as long as it’s not too disruptive.

at home

  • keep track of medication. ngl i am suuuper forgetful when it comes to medication :’) if you’re forgetful too, leave yourself as many reminders as you can. set alarms, write notes, or have someone else keep you accountable if you’re living with a parent or roommate. having routine helps here as well, especially if you take meds multiple times a day.
  • communicate regularly with your doctor. if you’re living away from home, or just a busy student, it can be particularly difficult to make appointments. but you should still make an effort to email your doctor, therapist, etc. at least once a month, and more often if you’re currently changing or adjusting medications.
  • “catching up” on sleep is a myth. depriving yourself of sleep during the week and then sleeping in on the weekends won’t fix your sleep schedule, sadly. keep it consistent if you can. even if you’re staying up late and sleeping in, try to get at least 7-8 hours. whether it’s 12-8 am or 2-10 am, it’s a reasonable amount for getting through the day. sleeping too little can leave you tired and grumpy in the morning, but sleeping too much can also leave you groggy, sluggish, and unproductive for the rest of the day.
  • eat something healthy. okay, no one can eat healthy all the time, and i don’t expect you to. i certainly don’t expect myself to lol. but we can still find a healthy snack or meal to make a part of our lives. sometimes fruit is the best comfort food tbh. here are a few simple snacks that you could try, for studying or for whatever else. i personally enjoy anything with berries, especially yogurt parfait or oatmeal.
  • have a support system. it helps so much to have someone you can talk to when you’re not feeling well or in need of encouragement. it can be a friend, a parent, a sibling, your significant other, or even other members of the studyblr community! (if you don’t have anyone to talk to, please talk to me!! i am here for you my friendo)

other stuff

  • community college by @universi-tea - if you’re worried about moving into dorms or away from home (or are simply unable to), i strongly encourage you to try out community college. it’s made schooling much more enjoyable and accessible for me and i think everyone should give it a chance. plus it’s waaay cheaper.
    • also, most (if not all) U.S. schools have a disability services department; this applies to both physical and mental illnesses. talking to them for the first time can be nerve-wracking, but in the long run it’s completely worth it. teachers and staff want to help you! but you have to help yourself a lil bit too. accommodations may include leniency about attendance and deadlines, or they may let you take exams on earlier or later dates with fewer students present. the flexibility with deadlines has saved my ass more than once tbh
  • things to do when things don’t feel right by @affectionsuggestions - sometimes it’s okay to just do small things, and sometimes it’s okay to not do anything at all.
  • ways to start feeling again by @urbanthropologie - similar to above, but with a focus on mindfulness (helps with anxiety, dissociation, etc)
  • my mental illness tag - this has many other resources that are otherwise not listed in this post.
  • my printables tag! - printables are great for when you’re too tired or not sure how to write things out completely by hand. there are some planners and calendars as well as gratitude logs, habit trackers, etc.
  • i have tons of other tags listed here if you need anything more specific :>

thank you for reading! i hope you found some of these tips helpful. i believe in you!!

NHL!Bitty, Part IX - ‘Loose Lips Sink Ships’

(Alright, you guys voted for #2, so enjoy!)

Eric gets hit on in a hotel bar during All-Star weekend. For the first time in a long time, it’s not because he’s a famous hockey player.

It would be very flattering, except the man trying to seduce him works for Jack’s PR firm, and bro is playing fast and loose with some seriously confidential information. 

NHL!Bitty Masterpost!

It’s been a long, exhausting day. Between the flight, check-in, the press junket, the photo ops, all Eric wants is to get a little bit drunk with the guys, grab some dinner, and fool around in Jack’s hotel room. Hopefully in that order, but he’s open to fooling around whenever.

He must have a dopey smile on his face thinking about the debauchery he’s been looking forward to all week when he realizes someone is watching him from across the bar. 

Tall, nice hair, professional, and he’s looking at Eric, no, at the empty chair next to him. And he’s walking over. 

“Is this seat taken?”

Word Count: 5.5K (again, oops)

A/N: I finally wrote something with my baby Byun Baek as the lead…I hope you enjoy!

You had pretty much fallen head over heels for your devastatingly cute neighbor  the very first time you ran into him in the elevator.

He’d looked at you with those twinkling eyes from under his messy hair, and you’d melted on the spot. “I’m Baekhyun,” he’d said, grinning, offering his hand. “How come I’ve never seen you around?”

Fall For You (M) | 03 (Final)

gif ©

Summary: You hate a lot of things about Jeon Jungkook; you hate his arrogance, his reputation, and his pet name for you to name a few. But most of all, you hate how right it feels for you to fall into his arms, and how easy it is to fall for him.
Word Count: 13,742
Genre: fuckboy!Jungkook, college au, sprinkling of feelings
A/N: I feel like I’m sending my child to their first day of kindergarten oh my goodness. I hope you guys enjoy the last part!!

Part 01. Part 02 + Drabbles

Mood music: X

A mistake.

It absolutely had to be a mistake.

There was no way you were in love with Jeon Jungkook, absolutely no way in hell you had feelings for him that ran any deeper than discontent. It had been the moment, the conversation with Jungkook, the awe you’d felt when he showed you his forest. You had gotten caught up in that moment, and your mind had tricked itself into thinking you liked Jungkook.

You didn’t love Jungkook.

You loved his dick. And that was all.

Jake and Amy, high school sweethearts

I love this.

  • Amy has always been a nerd. She’s not ashamed of it and she doesn’t hide it but sometimes it does mean she doesn’t have many friends. When she gets to high school nothing much changes. She spends time alone, with the teachers, Kylie is her best and sometimes only friend. 
  • She gets assigned a lab partner. Jake Peralta. She knows him. He’s the class clown and friends with Gina whose the most popular girl in school. They’ve never spoken and Amy just assumes she’ll be doing most of the work because…well because that’s how it always works out for her. 
  • Except Jake seems to be intent on getting involved. He’s sloppy and drops most of the chemicals on the work bench before they end up in the right beaker but he’s smart and has good intuition. 
  • Each week they work together and it fits well. She reads the instructions and measures everything out. He knows the result they’re expecting and how to get it. 
  • He makes her laugh. Amy’s so used to being serious that at first she stifles the laugher behind her hand. But the more she lets herself laugh the more she realises she needs to have some fun. 
  • They have so much in common. About as much as they don’t. They both like cop shows, puzzles and they’re both obsessed with board games. 
  • Jake is becomes a regular fixture in her life. They go from lab partners to friends quickly. Jake see’s Amy at lunch and sits with her. Amy catches Jake in the corridor and they end up almost missing class laughing over nothing. 
  • Amy tells Jake about her brothers and her family. Jake tell’s Amy about his mum and her double shifts and his dad leaving. They begin walking home together. Jake taking the long way home just to drop Amy off at home. 
  • They walk home together most days and then they start spending weekends together. Amy take’s Jake to the science museum and then they go for ice cream after. Jake takes Amy to see a movie and insists on buying them the sweetest sweets on sale.
  • At Christmas time Amy gives Jake a handmade christmas card and then a second envelope. It’s an invitation to Noche Buena. Jake blushes deep and Amy blushes back both a little awkward. She babbles about her family being so big he’ll blend in and his mums shift pattern and so many things that Jake can’t keep up. 
  • He turns up at Noche Buena more well dressed then she’s ever seen him and more reserved then she knew he could be. 
  • He eats with her family and compliments her mum on white rice and cascos. They take dessert into the Garden. 
  • Jake sits close and tells her stories that makes her laugh. She teases him about his tie and he laughs harder. 
  • When they’re heading inside he stops her quickly and kisses her. Its quick and gentle and Amy barely registers it before its gone. 
  • She follows him back into the house in time to watch her dad and uncle fight about politics yet again. Amy’s mind whirs and spins until Jake grabs her hand and threads their fingers together. 
  • Suddenly her mind stops and it feels like it does when they work together. It just fits. It works. Amy feels more relaxed and Jakes eyes soften.  
  • Amy’s still a nerd for the rest of high school. She still spends time in the library and get’s straight A’s. But now she has Jake as a best friend too and her school days are full of laughter.

You had been Steve Harrington’s across-the-street neighbor your entire life. You grew up riding bikes with him up and down the street, swimming in his pool on hot summer days, and sneaking out after bedtime to tell scary stories and catch fireflies. You were inseparable for the longest time- your parents and his even joked that you’d grow up and get married one day. 

But Steve was a year older than you, so when he moved on to middle school while you were still in fifth grade, you grew apart. It wasn’t heartbreaking or anything- it happens. Kids grow apart. By the time you caught up with him in high school, his reputation as King Steve had been built. He was popular, dated all kinds of girls, captain of the basketball team, and had parties nearly every weekend his parents were out of town. 

You weren’t like that. You hated big parties. You thought the concept of getting sloshed and screaming all night was idiotic (though you’d never done it before). You focused on your schoolwork, joined the school newspaper and yearbook staff. You and Steve didn’t run in the same circles hardly at all. Occasionally you’d chat in the hallway, but it was never anything important. You interviewed him once for an article regarding the basketball team. He stopped by with a casserole for your mom from his mom. Nothing crazy. 

Last you’d heard, Nancy Wheeler had dumped him, after nearly a year of going out, for Jonathan Byers. But it didn’t make any difference to you. You had no feelings for Steve. 

But then your car broke down.
