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 !! ((-:

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.

Is it okay to chose a name that you don't think looks like you (if that makes sense)? I want to call myself Scott but I feel like I don't look like a Scott?? I still really love the name though

Kii says:

Whether someone “looks like” their name is entirely subjective. You can choose whatever name you want. It doesn’t matter what you look like.

hi that fem!shiro keith and lance was tagged as she/ith and shk/lance :,)

Hi! I just want to start by saying I appreciate that you felt you were looking out for me by sending me this. I know it was sent from a good place, but in the future, please don’t send me asks like this :)

There’s a reason my blog is drama-free (or at least I’m trying to be) and part of that is that I don’t want to ostracize people who just want to follow me for Voltron content. I don’t reblog sh@/@din, as you know from following me, and that art that I reblogged wasn’t shippy at all. The reason I rb’d it is bc it’s three of my favs in an au I like. I personally believe the artist just tagged the pairing names to get more eyes on it.

Whatever you choose to believe is fine, bc we all have free will and everything, but it makes me uncomfortable to get these asks because I feel pressured to delete posts that contain beautifully done or artistic content that I like just bc of whatever the op enjoys in their private space. That’s not my business, and my intention in reblogging it was not to promote sh@/@din, but because I like genderbend aus. That’s all.

I don’t know if this even makes sense, and if my answer is offensive to you or you now hate me for not deleting the post, I’m sorry and the unfollow button is there if you need it! I want to reiterate I know your ask was coming from a place of trying to inform me, but I truly abide by the “live and let live” motto, so I won’t be deleting it. But I wish you the best! :)

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.

  • Africa, by the Monbasa Market Place.
  • Africa, on the dead end past the Festival of the Lion King.
  • Discovery Island, across from the monkeys and behind the Memory Maker sales center.

Hollywood Studios (7 Total)

  • To the right of the entrance, across from Hollywood Scoops.
  • Next to Aerosmith’s Rockin’ Rollercoaster.
  • In front of Fantasmic.
  • In Pixar Place, next to Toy Story Midway Mania.
  • Across from the Studio Catering Company
  • Next to Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunts Show.
  • Between Star Tours and the ABC Sound Studio.

Downtown Disney (6 Total)

  • Right off the bridge to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa.
  • Across from the Disney Design-a-Tee.
  • Beside Once Upon a Toy.
  • Next to The Art of Shaving, Sanuk, Sound Lion, Apex, etc shopping strip.
  • Another directly across from the previous location.
  • Across from Disney’s Candy Cauldron.

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!

Heya! I've also been looking for a name (ftm) and my problem is that, while I do most things in English (browsing the web, video games etc), my first language is Spanish. I'm more drawn to foreign names but I'm afraid it might sound silly with my Spanish surname, and it will be weird if a Spanish speaker uses the name while speaking in Spanish. What do?

Hi anon!

Maybe you could try looking for a name that is in Spanish, that way you can avoid worrying about it sounding weird. If you want you could choose whatever kind of name you want and have a nickname that you like for people to use for you when speaking Spanish. This site has some good options if you want to start looking.

Best of luck!

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.

How do you make an Amazon wishlist?

Make an account if you don’t have one already, go to the “Account and Lists” tab and hit create list. Name it whatever you want and choose your settings then shop for items and beneath where it says “add to cart” there’s a smaller “add to list” option and there you go!

THE GODFATHER

       An EXQUISITE sheath coated every inch of the petite beauty located just inches from him.  A drink at hand, the hazel pairs lingered, RELISHING on such a ravishing sight, but what truly caught his eye was her own set that BURNED danger, something he found an obsessive enjoyment over. Interesting choice of word he thought and in return caused a guttural chortle, leaning inches closer while the scandalous grin stretched along his perfect bare skin. ❝ Beautiful AND smart.. It’d be rude of me not to properly introduce myself to such a charming young woman. ❞ With that the broad hand extended, taking hers only to place an affable kiss to the creamy skin of her palm.  ❝ Name’s Negan.. but many call me GodFather.. That name seems to stick more, but whatever you choose, by all means say it.. In fact  ━ You can call me whatever you’d like. ❞ 

        Point one for charm indeed. She was a woman he must have and his competent mind made sure to develop a promising plan to achieve such goal. Before releasing her hand, he placed another promising kiss, eyes displaying both innocence while simultaneously blazing ENCHANTING persuasion. Lifting from the chair, his stance was large and proud, chest puffed out with sheer CONFIDENCE one releasing his grip. ❝ Hate to ask this because I do have major respect for the ladies, but how’s it you’d like to go home with me? You seem to enjoy questionable excitement but I do promise I am no harm. What do ya say? ❞ Thickened brows raised playfully, the gleaming smile at perfect display once more.  ❝ Promise I won’t bite. ❞

anonymous asked:

Is it okay to make up a name for a woman of color in a post apocalyptic story? I want to do something with Arabic roots but is a unique so I won't have readers with the same name. I wasn't sure if this would be problematic or not.

Is the WOC of Arabic descent or Muslim? If she is, then it makes sense for her to have an Arabic name. If she’s not either, you come at risk of exoticizing her and that would be problematic.

Names carry a lot of weight and are usually significant as a cultural identifier. It shouldn’t be used just to make a person “unique”. Make sure her cultural background and family history are aligned with the name you choose, not just one you pick out of an online baby name dictionary at random.

It’s important to understand how these names work as a whole too. I’m gonna go off on a tangent here, just to provide more information:

Westerners tend to get confused with anything past the first/given name. Arabic names run on a system of patronymics, meaning they don’t typically have a last name that works like y’know, Johnson or Smith.

You always see Western media referring to Osama bin Laden as “Bin Laden”, which is wrong. First of all “bin” means son of. It’s not a last name. If they wanted to refer to him in a formal way, it should have been “Ibn Laden”. It also means son of, but it should be spelled as “bin” only when it’s between the given name and the father’s name. It’s a grammatical thing.

A female name, on the other hand, would utilize bint (colloquially: binte, abbreviated as bte.) or binti / abbrv: bt. , and this means daughter of. This is all, of course, dependent on the region. A lot have adopted a family name system (since travel forms & documents cater almost entirely to the western naming system), but the patronymic is still in use.

Having absorbed all this, I hope you take great care to give whatever name you choose the three-dimensionality and research it deserves. ‘Cos if you just haphazardly choose any old name without understanding how the naming system works, it will show as badly as “John Jake” or whatever. If you’re only gonna give her a name with Arabic roots for the sake of making her a special snowflake, eeehhh best not.

“But it’s a post-apocalyptic story! New identities are bound to sprout into existence!” Yes, world-building is essential for dystopias. But even post-apocalyptic societies retain remnants of old cultures. They don’t just go to a department store bargain bin and choose new cultural elements like they’re at a Pick ‘n’ Mix.

Followers, feel free to add to this. This is just scratching the surface; there’s also matronymics, honorific names, etc.

Edit: (not so fun fact) The derogatory British slang word bint does in fact come from the Arabic word. This came about during the British occupation of Egypt in the late nineteenth century. So yes, using bint as an insult is racist and Islamophobic as fuck.

Morning affirmation:  'Your will be done God (whatever name for God you choose), not mine, in me and through me; show me what I must do this day, and let me be a channel of your blessings to all.’
 
Evening affirmations: ‘My concentration is becoming perfect.’
That should be done for two weeks, then change to, ‘My concentration is perfect.’

Pre-sleep affirmation: This is often the most effective affirmation because you repeat it as you are going to sleep; this carries it deeper into the sub-conscious. For this reason your highest priority affirmation should be done as you go to sleep. If you want to be able to remember your dreams in the morning, or you want to be conscious of your dreams while you are having them, use the following statement
as the pre-sleep affirmation until the difficulty is resolved: ‘I remember my dreams and I am conscious while dreaming.’

Hey trans kids choosing a name: you don’t have to choose a name “parallel” of yours, meaning you don’t need to choose the male or female version. If you’re name is Joann you don’t have to pick John, if your name is Shaun you don’t have to pick Shauna, you can choose whatever name fits you best.
