whatever name you choose

OneNote is literally god’s gift to this earth. [ header art ]

I downloaded OneNote onto my mac air through my school’s office365 [which is a microsoft email login thing but is easily accessible on any kind of device and you can just delete the email acc later if you want]. OneNote can be accessed on a laptop, computer or ipad/tablet. i believe OneNote is available on the appstore as well?

I use OneNote as a digital bullet journal / planner and to write down all my study notes. i also have actual books for my study notes but i tend to prefer OneNote.

OneNote is super easy to use! think of it like an actual book:


1. DESIGNING THE COVER

When you open OneNote for the first time it will ask you to create a Notebook. You can name it whatever you wish and even choose the colour of it! You can have as many Notebooks as you like, so go wild !!


2. CHAPTERS

In your Notebook, you can have “chapters”, called sections or tabs. Depending on whether you use OneNote as a bujo or for study notes, these tabs can look like this:


3. PAGES

Time to fill your chapters! These pages will contain all of your content. Whether that’s a weekly spread in your bujo or a page on DNA molecules in your humanbio Notebook. You can have as many as you want! Pages on OneNote tend to look like this:

Once you click on which page you want, it’ll open !

4. SPREADS [for planners]

Spreads are completely personalised and customised depending on you! Anything you do in your physical bujo you can do on OneNote. Habit checker? Tables? Homework diary? Inspirational quotes? Cute doodles? Day-to-Day planner? 

This is just an example of mine, you can do WHATEVER YOU WANT with yours !!


5. STUDY NOTES

My study notes are basically just what my teacher says during class or puts on the board, which is why they’re almost always in bullet point form like this:

But obviously, you can edit your notes to be however you’d like them !!


6. OTHER INFO

One feature i really like about one note is the fact you can make the paper look like whatever you want. such as blank paper, margined + lined paper, graph paper etc. this is really helpful when writing notes and especially drawing diagrams !!

also, across the top is literally everything you’ll ever need.


IN CONCLUSION:

Please download OneNote !! it’s so user-friendly and customisable. I was honestly shocked that more people weren’t using OneNote in the studyblr community. It’s such a lifesaver near test + exam time because all of your notes are in one place !!

also, OneNote autosaves and doesnt close if you close your laptop [as long as you’re not logged out or the computer is shut down] so you’ll never lose your work !!

HERE is another post about me yelling about OneNote lmao

If you have any questions or problems, feel free to ask !! ((-:

Unpredictable (Roman Reigns x OFC)

(A/N) I’m sorry that it took me so long to upload guys. I was really busy and my mind was just not working along. But I’m happy to say that the first chapter is up. Feedback is more than welcome, so let me know what y’all think🙈.

Chapter 1

Alani

‘’Can you pass me that box over there?’’ I asked my mom as I was standing in my new room.

‘’Which one? They all look the same,’’ she mocked. ‘’When you asked me to come over and told me that there were only a few boxes left, you didn’t say there were actually still thousand left to unpack.’’

‘’Thanks for helping mom,’’ I smiled sweetly and gave her a hug. She chuckled and shook her head, hugging me back. I moved in my own house a week ago but there were still some boxes left to unpack since I was being my lazy self. ‘’Do you think dad is finished with the backyard?’’

‘’Honey, he’s probably already finished for an hour, but he’s just admiring his work, you know how he is.’’

‘’Are all architects like that?’’ I laughed as I walked downstairs. My dad has his own company for over ten years and became extremely successful, so when I told him that I was moving out of my shitty apartment, he insisted on designing my house. I was fortunate to have something this big being done for me and my dad luckily didn’t ask me for a fortune. My dad, on the other hand, paid a fortune to build and design the whole place. ‘Anything for my beloved daughter’, he said. ‘’I’ll make sure it looks like a mansion.’ Little did I know that when he mentioned that it’ll look like a mansion, he, in fact, build a mansion. It wasn’t too big but it wasn’t too small either, he knows exactly what I love and we, of course, talked about what I wanted and wished for.

I saw my dad standing in the living room while writing some things down. ‘’If you’re okay with it, I’d like to add this to my portfolio, showing all my clients how amazing I am,’’ he said as he turned around. I rolled my eyes and chuckled. ‘’What do you think of it?’’

‘’I couldn’t wish for anything more, thank you, dad.’’ I smiled and gave him a hug. ‘’I’m going to do the groceries right now because I need some good ass meal to eat in my brand new house,’’ I excitedly said. ‘’And thank you both for letting me stay at your house for the weeks this all was being built.’’

‘’It was no problem at all honey,’’ my mom spoke as she kissed my dad’s cheek. ‘’We’re happy that you’re happy.’’ She smiled. ‘’Don’t we have to babysit Mason?’’

‘’Your mom is right, we gotta go. Your sister is dropping off Talia again.’’ He slightly groaned.

‘’When are you guys gonna tell Avery to stop doing that?’’ I asked them as I opened the front door for them.

 ‘’We still have to figure out how to do that without sounding rude.’’ My mom gave me a hug and walked towards their black BMW. I chuckled and hugged my dad.

 ‘’Thanks, dad, for everything.’’ I gratefully said.

‘’Anytime Lani,’’ he smiled and walked to the drivers seat to start the car and they drove off. As I closed the door, I looked around, still in awe because of how big and beautiful everything was. I grabbed my bag and decided to go to the store before I was glued to the couch once again.

 ——————–

I was happy that I didn’t have to walk that far to get to the nearest grocery store, about twenty minutes. However, when I was tired, it would seem forever to get there so I’m glad I have my driver’s license. I probably failed three times but I insisted on getting it because that way I didn’t have to rely on others. My brother, on the other hand, relies on me or my parents when it comes to transport. Even though he’s 26 and two years younger than me, he was more occupied on working his way into my dad his company. Just because Carter is his only son, doesn’t mean he has family privileges.

I always told myself ‘tomorrow’ when it came to making the decision to start eating healthy. But I got a brand new house, a fresh start, so why not start today?  My eyes wandered, looking at all the delicious, but at the same time unhealthy food. It wasn’t my goal to be walking towards the heavenly chocolate, but I eventually did since it was calling my name. I grabbed a bar of milk chocolate and looked at it, a whole war was started in my head whether I should take it or not.

‘’Not the most healthiest choice,’’ a deep voice said from behind me. I frowned and turned around, curious who the person was who approached me. My eyes met the dark brown ones of a tall, muscular, handsome man, dressed in what I would call ‘Sunday clothing’. A black t-shirt hugged his broad shoulders and slim waist, wearing black sweats as well. Dang, he looked good.

I chuckled and looked at the chocolate bar in my hand, ‘’Not the most healthiest choice no, I agree with you on that one, but oh so good.’’

‘’You got me there,’’ the man laughed. ‘’Chocolate is everyone’s sin, even mine.’’

‘’Wouldn’t say so,’’ I pointed at his muscular chest.

‘’Oh trust me, whenever I had a stressful day or I trained too much, the first thing I eat is chocolate.’’ He smiled as he shook his head. This man is truly gorgeous. ‘’Everything else looks pretty healthy,’ he nodded towards my shopping cart, filled with all kinds of fruits and vegetables.

‘’Gotta balance it right,’’ I shrugged and decided to take the chocolate bar as I added it to my healthy food. ‘’I’m Alani, by the way, I’m new in the neighborhood,’’ I reached for his hand and he gladly shook it.

‘’I figured,’’ he smiled, ‘’your house was being built right?’’

‘’Yeah, my dad recommended this area, saying it was the perfect spot to live; beautiful surroundings, everything is within walking distance, really friendly people,’’

‘’He couldn’t be more right. Especially the really friendly people part, you just met the friendliest of them all,’’ he winked, making me laugh. I shook my head and the two of us started to walk around in the supermarket while telling me small bits about the people who were present and also lived in the neighborhood. ‘’That over there is Mrs. Yell,’’ he pointed at the small, grey haired woman standing in the shelf of the cat and dog food. I frowned in confusion, not knowing what he was talking about. ‘’Everyone calls her Mrs. Yell because she literally yells every single day. If it’s not because her husband did something wrong, again, it’s because of the smallest bread crumb on her recently cleaned floor. She’ll find a reason to yell, so cherish the moments whenever she’s quiet cause they ain’t long.’’

‘’Sounds like the perfect company,’’ I joked. He laughed and we walked into another shelf. ‘’So mystery man, you haven’t told me your name yet.’’

‘’How rude am I,’’ he gasps as his hand covered his chest. ‘’I’m Joe, but my real name is actually Leati…but I also go by the name of Roman. So I have three names, you choose whatever you like to call me.’’ He leaned in and whispered, ‘’I prefer Joe tho.’’

‘’Impressive, Joe.’’ I nodded as I grabbed a bottle of Cola. ‘’Does each name have a different persona?

‘’You gotta find that out on your own, Alani,’’ he winked as we walked to the cash register. The gentleman he was, helped me to put everything in bags and even held them as we walked back to my place. The walk was filled with Joe talking about all the crazy stuff he experienced in this neighborhood and how he loved living here. I smiled at all the silly faces he made as he was telling me about that one time he visited his cousin and tried to make his one-year-old child laugh. The way he was talking was so pure and real, I already liked him.

‘’You can hand me my groceries now,’’ I chuckled as I stood in front of my house.

‘’Jheeze, your place looks like a millionaires place, it’s amazing,’’ he said stunned. ‘’Not even my place looks like this and I’m pretty rich,’’

‘’Master of bragging,’’ I laughed. Joe grinned as he handed me the grocery bags. ‘’So I think I’ll you around then.’’

‘’Definitely,’’ he smiled, ‘’What if I stop by tomorrow? You know, just for a cup of coffee and you can make me jealous by showing me around in your palace.’’

‘’Sounds good to me. What about 9 am?’’

‘’9 am it is,’’ he smiled warmly as he gave me a hug. ‘’If you need anything, don’t hesitate to knock on my door, I’m at the end of the street.’’

‘’Thanks, I’ll keep it in mind.’’ I thankfully said. I waved at him as he walked off to his own house. I thanked my dad in my head as I opened the front door for convincing me to move here. Still not over the fact I probably met the most handsome man of the neighborhood, I walked into the kitchen with the plastic bags and put them on the counter.

‘’Since when did I became invisible to you?’’ A female voice said. My head shot back up as I looked at my phone, finding none other than my best friend standing in front of me. ‘’Wassup girl?’’ She smiled.

‘’Ava what are you doing here?’’ I asked confused but extremely excited. I walked from behind the big marble kitchen counter over to her, giving her a hug.

 Ava has been my friend since the day I started walking. Our parents are really close friends who met in college back in the days. She was like a sister to me and we were together 24/7 until the day she got accepted to the University of Southern California. I was absolutely thrilled for her, but not about the fact that we weren’t going to see each other that often anymore. We both made the promise to call each other every week, face time as much as we can and meet up monthly. But since we both did completely different things, it was hard to hold on to that promise. She wanted to get her degree in art and design, that totally fitted her since she has always been busy with painting and drawing.

Me at the other hand wanted to deepen myself in dance and music more. So when I was accepted to a private school that was specifically for those two things, I barely had time for anyone since it was really intensive. I enjoyed every moment of it since I was doing something I loved but hated it because it took so much of my time and energy. I still dance, sing and perform occasionally, it’s just that I decided to diminish everything a bit.

‘’Your parents told me you moved and gave me your address. But girl, why didn’t you tell me?’’ She smiled as she looked at me. ‘’Dang you look fine as hell, better than I remember.’’

‘’Oh please I look terrible,’’ I covered my face in my hands. I had no idea what she was talking about since I was wearing just a plain grey dress, my hair totally mess and bags under my eyes because of my lack of sleep. ‘’But thanks, A. And I’m sorry, I was so busy with everything; the house, helping my dad, bookings. I barely had time to sleep.’’

‘’That I see,’’ she joked as she sat down on the kitchen chair. ‘’I’m just messing with you, babe. So how is my best friend doing? How’s living here?’’

‘’She’s doing great; new house, new neighborhood, new people, I really enjoy it here.’’

‘’Good to hear,’’ she smiled and looked inside of the bags with food, ‘’so what will we be eating?’’

 ——————–

‘’Christ Lani, this tastes so damn good,“ Ava said with a mouth full. “Them Italian genes from your mom seemed to have kicked in for real.’’

‘’I ain’t a chef like my mom,’’ I laughed, ‘’it’s called having a meat-free dish.’’ I stopped eating meat for over two years and I feel amazing; I have more energy, I don’t get sick so often and I simply feel fresher. My mom struggled and forgot about the decision I made for like a month and unwarily added meat to her food. Eventually, she started to get used to it and only added meat in 50% of her dishes.

‘’I’ll keep it at Italian genes,’’ she chuckled as she zapped through the channels. ‘’This TV looks like a cinema. I’m gonna ask your dad to build a house for me as well.’’

‘’Good luck with that,’’ Knowing my dad isn’t the easiest person to persuade. ‘’Wait, wait, hold on. Go back,’’ I suddenly said as I saw a familiar face passing by. Ava frowned and did what I asked her, even more,confused by my reaction. I chuckled and shook my head. ‘’Oh my god,’’

 ‘’What?’’

‘’That’s Joe,’ my jaw dropped as I saw him on TV. ‘’I met him this afternoon in the supermarket, he lives at the end of the street,’’

‘’No he doesn’t,’’ she said, not believing me. As she was about to say something else, she saw I wasn’t joking. ‘’Girl…You’re not telling me that you met Roman fucking Reigns in the supermarket and that he lives in your street.’’

‘’It’s true,’’ I simply said as I watched him; his hair was loose and wet, unlike today. He looked so different from the person I’ve met and I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t find him attractive.

‘’Lani you’re a lucky ass woman,’’ she grinned as she continued eating. Little did I know

Kylo Ren and Ben Solo AU's

(None of the photos, art or aesthetic posts in this are mine, just used as visuals to go along with it)

We all know canon Kylo and how he looks, but what about those other AU’s? I present, the ultimate list of Kylo Ren and Ben Solo AU’s!!

First we’ve got Smuggler Ben Solo, aka what Kylo would have been in the SW universe had he not chosen the dark side and was not force sensitive who takes majorly after his father:

Then! We have another favorite, Jedi Ben Solo! Another SW universe AU had Kylo not chosen the dark side. Tends to take after Leia, but still has his fathers attitude for sure:

Much like Jedi Ben Solo there is also Senator Ben Solo/Amidala. Given his lineage to one of the most famous and successful rebellion leaders and public figures, the young senator not only has big shoes to fill but does so boldly. Still carrying that Solo charm, Ben negotiates his way through the galaxy, fighting for the policies and actions he sees as doing right by the galaxy:

Then there’s a big favorite, Emperor Kylo. Basically still in the SW universe, but this time Kylo is free from Snoke’s control and able to be the grey jedi we all know he wishes he was:

Then we have a whole LOT of modern AU’s.

First, my personal favorite, what we can consider triplet/punk/generic modern/rock band Kylo. Like canon Kylo he’s got a bit of an anger problem but is highly intelligent and skilled in his craft (whatever it may be), he also has a dicey relationship with his parents. Though his demeanor is off-putting and intimidating, he’s secretly very emotional and thoughtful. In the triplet AU he’s most likely either the oldest or middle brother and is also the most intimidating of the three.

Then we’ve got College AU Kylo, who knows what he’s studying but a lot like modern Kylo above he’s fairly mysterious, kind of brooding and quiet, but reader certainly notices him whenever he’s in their nearby proximity. Given how intense his presence is. Most likely has a tendency to stare.

How Old is Eggsy Unwin?

alrighty I’ve seen a bunch of contradictory posts (the most recent thru @freya-deathstalker, thank u & I hope this helps answer questions?) so I did some searching and decided to compile all of my findings in one place: 

this places Eggsy’s birthday on September 6, 1991 making him 24 years old rn(2016)..

1.) this image is cropped from the behind the scenes pics in this post (tho I’m honestly not sure where they originated in the first place)

2.) however, this post here transcribes the full image of Eggsy’s police report - for anyone whose images aren’t loading or can’t read what’s in the pic - and also warns us to take this information with caution bc behind the scenes info isn’t always meant to be seen or it could just be filler fluff (not canon).. further than that, it also describes the *maybe canon* birthday we are shown on screen.. barely..

& so this is the image that is shown on screen, but it places Eggsy’s birthday on June 3, 1992 which would make him 23 years old rn(2016) & exactly one month from his 24th birthday

(here is the post that breaks down all of the information in this pic, since literally no one can read that tiny green writing lol - Roxy is 5′6″ and supposedly born on September 22, 1992 for fans who don’t wanna click the link)

now I personally have a harder time believing this *canon* image than the bts one, purely bc of this one thing: all 6 of them are listed as 22 years old… 

with Charlie’s birthday being Dec. 21 and Rufus’ May 11, this would make their current time in training sometime between the very very end of 2014 and the first 4 months of 2015.. which leads me into my questions of when V-Day was and how long Kingsman recruit trials actually last:

(this also happens to be the point where I think creators care less about timelines as they pertain to character’s personal details, and fanon/meta has to fill in the many holes that canon content leaves behind)

it seems to me that the general fandom/fanfic consensus is that V-Day was on the actual Feb. 14 Valentine’s Day.. maybe bc Valentine was very self-centered? maybe bc the US movie release date was Valentine’s weekend so it was just a subconscious thing? idk… BUT if we assume that V-Day happened on Feb. 14, 2015, and we assume that the info in that first image from bts is real and Eggsy was arrested on Feb. 21, 2014.. that would make Kingsman’s training period around a year long

I think this year-ish long period is also reflected in Daisy’s (or whatever you choose to name Eggsy’s baby sister) show of growth - where I have also seen a lot of contradiction tbh - but based on my personal experience with babies and google, the first time we see the baby I’d say she looks around 9-12 months old, and later on when Eggsy comes home she seems to be like 18 months old, 2 years max.. 

….. so tl;dr: Eggsy’s current age could be around 24 and a half, or he could be 23 & juust about to turn 24… it’s honestly up to you and if you’d like to believe information that’s shown on screen or behind the scenes (& if you’d rather believe that Harry met Eggsy when he was 21 or 22 :))

“Do you trust me?” the boy in gold asks, smirking in that way that always seems like he’s hiding something or that he knows more than he gives. It’s the only way the boy seems to be able to smile, crooked as the world they’ve dug their lives into.

The Vagabond, the Black Skull, the Mad Mercenary, whatever name you so choose to call him by, raises an eyebrow at the audacity of the question. Forty eight hours ago he hadn’t even known the kid existed. Then again, a lot could happen in that amount of time. 

“No,” he answers simply through the mask, arms crossed over his chest even when the Golden Boy had a hand outstretched.

“Smart man,” he says, that twisted smirk not faltering for a second. “But would you be up to doing another job? Hopefully one that will end with a little less shed blood.”

Despite himself, the man in the black mask gives a breathless chuckle. “Shame, I was hoping another one would end in more.”

The Golden Boy’s eyes brighten. Just barely, but enough that the other has learned to mean he’s amused. “Well… Guess we’ll just have to find out. You in or not?”

The Vagabond considers it for a moment, glancing to his hand then back to his face. Trying to read for any lies or any traps. But if the kid really wanted him dead, he could’ve done it ten times over by now. So he reaches out and takes his hand, shaking it firmly. “I’m in.”

*secret confession of confessions* I name my animals after my favourite characters. Everyone who speaks to me for more than 5 seconds knows Severus is my favourite hp character so they wonder why I have not used this name. The reason I am trans but not out yet and debating using Severus or the name of another character for my middle name.

Oh lovely anon, my heart is gladdened to know that you feel comfortable telling me this confession <3 I think you should definitely weigh the options and make the decision that seems best for you.  Though I can imagine how titilating it would be to write your name with S as your middle initial, and only you and a few people you trust know what it actually is!  Names often have great meaning, so do know that whatever you choose, I am sure that it will fit you perfectly.

Marinette slumped in a chair across from her professor. She felt like an idiot. Of course, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, but she did not realize that meant that one of the Butterfly’s minions would jump her in class. It was the girl who had been with Reflecta. The woman had only landed one blow before a football player in the same class pulled her off Marinette. The woman had been sent to Dean of Students Fu, and Marinette had been asked to escort Professor Piao-Chong (who preferred to be called by her first name, Tikki) to her office after class.

“Umm… Is there anywhere I can throw this away?” Marinette asked sloshing the all but melted ice (she had been covering her bruising eye with it) slightly.

Tikki smiled and motioned to a trashcan behind Marinette, “Most certainly.”

“Thank you.” Marinette muttered.

Once Marinette had settled again Tikki leaned back slightly in her chair, her hair was a vibrant red, and stood out even amongst college students. “I would like to know if you have any idea why Miss. Flutterly attacked you. I have to get a report to the Dean soon, so your cooperation would be much appreciated.”

Hey so I've been out for a little over 6/7 months now and i realized I don't really like the name I picked? I chose pretty quickly bc I couldn't stand my birth name but now I feel like, this is the name I'm gonna have forever I should really love it. On the other hand tho everyone just got used to the new name and it might be a hassle to change it again. Idk

Hey, you should love and feel comfortable with whatever name you choose, and so if you’re not comfortable with the one you have now, I’d say forget about other people and change it. I know that’s hard and it can be tricky explaining it and correcting people, but at the end of the day it is your name for the rest of your life, and so it needs to be something you like :) -Alex

Trans at Disney

Recently we returned from our first Disney trip together (Larra’s first ever). We left for the trip excited, but unsure of how well the parks would cater to Alex’s specific needs like carrying his injection supplies and medicine into the parks on shot day, as well as his desire to use single-stall restrooms. 

Overall, we had a great time and left the parks exhausted, but looking forward to our next visit. In the course of our stay, we picked up some various tips and info that might help other trans Disney enthusiasts enjoy their vacations, so we have compiled them here for your convenience! 
(PS: Keep an eye out for our upcoming post with tips for 20-somethings travelling to Disney without kids!)

TIP #1:
When it comes to booking your trip, the website will ask of the names of all your party members. The name of primary person on the vacation account must match their legal documents, but all other guests can use their preferred names on reservations as well as the Magic Bands, which serve as room keys, park tickets, Fast Pass+ reservations, and much more. If you are over 21 and plan to order drinks, you will still be required to show the wait staff legal ID.
Additionally, if you choose to get personalized Mickey ears as a souvenir, you can put whatever name you choose (NAME, no vulgarity is permitted), and the staff is very good about double-checking the spelling.

TIP #1.5:
When using your Fast Pass+ reservations, you scan the Magic Band and the name attached to your band appears on the cast member’s screen. Because of this, using your preferred name on your Magic Band is ideal, as it will allow fewer opportunities for misgendering.

TIP #2:
Bring a buddy! Obviously most people don’t take Disney trips alone, but in the case of a trans guest, having a friend who is familiar with your gender identity and can run interference or help you in intense, uncomfortable, or even emergency situations can be a major help and comfort.

TIP #3:
Trip timing can make or break a vacation for a trans guest who needs or chooses to bind. Heat is obviously not just uncomfortable, but potentially dangerous when combined with a binder. Our trip was in early March, and Alex thinks that the weather would have been tolerable had he still been binding. Mid-to-late Fall to early Spring are ideal times when the heat isn’t too intense. An added bonus is that cool weather negates the issue of swimwear for those of you who don’t feel comfortable in it. However, if you prefer summer travel, or for other reasons can’t avoid it, check out our tutorial on altering tank tops to comfortably conceal binders.

TIP #4:
When meeting characters in the parks, you will encounter a) non-speaking characters, usually these are masked characters or animals, and b) speaking characters. An unfortunate reality of meeting talking characters is that they may misgender someone. It only happened to Alex once, and the character sort of smoothed over it when corrected. Obviously, many characters have long lines and many guests to see. Moreover, I’m not sure how character training covers mishaps like misgendering. All-in-all, our experiences with characters were mostly fun and positive, but this is definitely an instance where I imagine having a buddy to correct them would be helpful if you yourself don’t feel comfortable or don’t want to do so.

TIP #5:
One thing we were particularly concerned about was Alex’s ability to carry his testosterone and needles into the park on shot day. Since we spent 7 days in the parks, there really wasn’t a way to schedule around it. If you’re travelling during a very hot time, or you just don’t feel comfortable carrying your supplies with you, there is always the option to take a park break and return to your hotel for the shot, however, the parks do allow sharps and medicine in, they just request that your notify the bag inspectors that it’s in there.

TIP #6:
Bathrooms: the Disney Parks all have gender-neutral single-stall restrooms throughout the parks. They’re set up the same way as many “family” restrooms in malls and other amusement parks, but it’s important to note that Disney refers to them as “Companion Restrooms” and they are designated as such on the park maps.

(No, they don’t all have corny townspeople on them.)

Alex feels like there were actually more gender neutral restrooms than he expected, which was a pleasant surprise, but they seemed difficult to locate until we figured out what they symbol on the map was. Additionally, many of the cast members that we asked about them didn’t seem to know what we were talking about when we asked for a “family,” “single stall,” or “gender neutral” restroom. Seems like that’s something that Disney should add to their cast member training.

he restrooms themselves were usually clean and decent-sized. It seems like someone in a wheelchair would have ample room to maneuver, and a mom with kids would be able to fit a stroller in easily. Almost every regular restroom and most of the “companion” restrooms featured a sharps box, which was very convenient for Alex, as I imagine it would also be for diabetics or anyone else who relies on injectable medicines. However, in the afternoons many of these sharps boxes were full, so if you cannot dispose of the sharp safely, take it to the park’s first aid area and they can dispose of it for you. Alternately, you might elect to keep a hard-side case in your bag to carry the used sharp until you return to your hotel.

Below are listed all of the Companion Restrooms in the main Disney Parks as well as Downtown Disney:

Magic Kingdom (8 Total)

  • Midway down Main Street USA on the left as you enter the park.
  • Tomorrowland, between the Carousel of Progress and Space Mountain.
  • Fantasyland, between the WDW Railroad and Pete’s Silly Sideshow.
  • Fantasyland, next to Gaston’s Tavern, tucked away behind an archway.
  • Fantasyland, next to the Pinocchio Village Haus.

In addition to the many companion restrooms, there are even more sex-segregated multi-stall restrooms throughout the parks, and Alex found that most people in the mens’ restrooms didn’t give him a second glance, but they definitely weren’t as clean as the companion restrooms.

And that’s it! That’s all we have for you in this post. We hope to have another one put together soon on general tips for 20-somethings at Disney. We hope these tips were helpful, and if you have any questions about something we didn’t cover (or something we did!), please don’t hesitate to send us a message!

Have a Magical Day, cuties!

To me, from the musical aspect, hip-hop is going in the direction where it’s like almost damn near 100 percent on everything besides the music. Like what you look like, the sound of your name, to what you’re wearing, whatever intoxicants you choose to put in your body, to, you know, everything except for what the music sounds like. The mask is really a testament to yo, it’s not about none of that. It’s straight about the wreck. You could be any color, or whatever, the mask represents just everybody. Yo, Nothing matters, the brand of clothing, none of that matters. It just matters how you spit and the beats, if the beats is raw, then that’s what it’s about.

To the anon asking about names, maybe try using a part of your Birth name if any part of it sounds like what you're looking for, such as your middle name. (I personally lucked out with an A+ middle) If your birth name doesn't work, you could always try online name generators? Or even use names of characters you like! Just try to choose whatever your heart pulls you to!

Hey, what’s up, looking for some help picking between the name’s Milo and Eli. Um I’ve got short pink hair and I’m just a short person in general if that helps at all. I’m also a huge dork and very awkward, but I can be a real asshole sometimes, but I’m not gonna go into my life story so anywho, I’d love if you could help

I think Milo would suit you the best! But that’s just my opinion, go with whatever name you prefer.

If you’re still struggling to choose between two names, here are some things you could do:
- Write out each as if it was your full name e.g. Milo (middle name) (last name) and the same for Eli and then sign your name and see which feels more natural
- get some friends to call you Milo or Eli and see which one sounds right
- put the two names in a hat and pick one out and if you’re happy with the name you’ve picked, choose that one. If you’re not happy, choose the other one
- practice introducing yourself as either Milo or Eli in the mirror and see which one seems more natural

Hope this helps! 😊

Okay, I’ve gathered all the ideas, now to put them to the vote.

Please remember that whatever ship name you guys choose I will tag all content with and spread around to every blog who has Spark x Blanche content. I’d appreciate it if you’d spread this around so everyone can have their say as well. I have favorites among these, but I tried to make it fair-er by putting the names in alphabetical order. Votes can be cast by comment, reblogs, or by asks, so make sure you vote. Voting is open until Friday the 20th 12 PM Alaska Time.  (If there are too few votes or a close score I’ll do another round with the top picks over the weekend.)
