THE REAL STORY BEHIND THE NAMJOON, WALE, AND VENNY INCIDENT
So long story short an “army” that goes by the name of Venny is pretty good at making celebrities notice bangtan. She got a retweet from wale from an old cover from namjoon and even got tinashe to notice hobi.
But heres why you SHOULD NOT treat here as the best namjoon stan ever because she is not
*i dont want to bring up the past but a lot of people are comparing her with namjoon because VENNY IS PROBLEMATIC SHE MADE A LOT OF RACIST REMARKS AND NEVER APOLOGIZED OR OWNED UP TO THEM AND EVEN REPEATED THEM UNLIKE NAMJOON*
So basically many armys AND HER claim that the collab happened because of her WHICH I HIGHLY DOUBT BECAUSE ME KNOWING NAMJOON HE WOULD OF SAID SOMETHING HIMSELF
so then venny venn diagram releases these on her twitter (WHICH IS NOW PRIVATE COINCIDENCE I THINK NOT)
Okay but e ven before i knew that this was fake I HIGHLY DOUBTED IT namjoon would of done something himself he has the full capability to dm and message intl armys he has done so before
also she sounded soooooo shady i wasnt buying it
so then seeing this beef wale assumed namjoon knows venny venn diagram not knowing the real situation
BUT NAMJOON DOESNT KNOW WHO TF THIS PROBLEMATIC SHIT IS THIS COLLAB DIDNT HAPPEN BECAUSE OF YOU BOO
the fact that some people dont know this AND ARE ACTING LIKE SHE IS THE BEST NAMJOON STAN IS DISGUSTING BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY BEAUTIFUL NAMSTANS OUT THERE NOT THIS LYING SHIT WHO WANTED TO BE NOTICED SO DAMN BAD
I feel really bad for her BECAUSE SHE IS SO PETTY LIKE YOU ALREADY LIED AND EVERYONE KNOWS STOP TRYNA COVER YOURSELF UP WE ARE ARMYS WE ARE DETECTIVES WE WILL FIGURE OUT EVERYTHING
okay but basically i dont know what to do
the whole situation is so petty and stupid, like did this girl REALLY have to do this, being a namjoon stan since pre-debut i wouldnt be this thirsty to get namjoon to notice me, like i dont really know what to do because she already has done it and really cant take it back.
but hey im happy this happened because the twitter memes about her are so funny
peace, love, and support namjoon’s mixtape
*note* so many people are supporting namjoon remember when everyone used to fucking hate him people are giving him so much love i love armys we are amazing we need to protect namjoon
i feel bad for namjoon bc this is affecting his career, some “armys” are no different from antis using namjoon as a fucking target for everything, i remember him mentioning that he wont feel as if his life has purpose until his music affect the lives of his fans and now when he actually gets to know an intl “army” its about something negative and false accusations against him. Imagine how hard breaking he would feel GREAT START TO HIS SECOND MIXTAPE UGH
LEAVE HIM ALONE
atfirst i thought it was stupid to hate on venny as what she did was a harmless petty joke but this can really affect namjoon’s image in his rap career as wale knows about this
I see prompts are open yay! Please tell me all about Ford finding out about Bitty and Jack.
is interesting, because I don’t feel like it’d be an announcement, but just
something Ford finds out when Jack visits or the like. I mean, it could go the
other way, like Lardo could be, “heads up, Bitty’s dating our ex-captain” and
Ford would be like, “okay? why are you telling me?” (She’s a theatre background,
what is a Bad Bob to her?) I think she’d be pretty chill with it, and coming
from theatre, like being gay is not an issue, esp in college (and even at the
professional level) and esp if we go with the oft reblogged “Ford is gay”
is a small fic that is only half based on the above…
checks the dozens of pages Lardo has given her for the upcoming roadie. She
thought dealing with dressing room allocation was hard (and it is, one hundred
percent) but figuring out room allocations is somehow worse, particularly when
she’s new, and hockey players are more superstitious than the girl who played
Johanna in Sweeney.
was it I’m meant to pair Oliver with?” Ford asks, grabbing for the red pen
she’d stuck into her bun earlier. She comes out with a green one. It’ll do.
But really, he’d be fine with any of the guys in his year.”
makes a note on one of the pages. “Okay, then I think I’m–Oh, shit.”
it?” Lardo looks up from her sketchbook.
double checks through all her sheets before she says anything. She’s not
worrying, because there’s no time for that, she’s just already hating the
amount of extra work she’ll need to do to fix things.
left Eric, um, Bitty,” Ford corrects herself, still getting used to hockey
nicknames, “off the rooming list.”
Nah, you’re good.”
Lardo goes back to her drawing. “He stays with his boyfriend when we’re
playing up there.”
He’s in Providence. And he’ll drive Bitty to the games and practices and stuff. Should’ve emailed you that. My bad.”
“That’s fine.” Ford grabs another pen from her hair, forgetting she already has one in
front of her. It’s red this time. “Just thought I was going to have to redo an
entire afternoon’s worth of work.”
Lardo says. “I can see why the minor freak out.”
you, I did not freak out.” It’s half a lie. Ford has so many notes on these
sheets, but she’s not freaking out, she’s managing. It’s all part of it.
Lardo looks up and smiles at her. “Knew you’d be fine at this.”
takes the compliment with a gracious nod, and goes back to ticking off the rooming
list against the team names. All accept Eric.
Okay so bare with me on this! I know some of you are probably thinking but studyblrs are amazing and great and just all round so helpful, which they are! The studyblr community on tumblr is amazing and I get so much out of it but there are a lot of sides to it that are unrealistic.
When I had my first studyblr account over a year ago I was focusing on the aesthetics of notes and pictures rather than being helpful and talking to people. This quickly became too hard to keep up and I deleted the account. I did this because I had seen so many studyblrs doing it and I thought if they can do it so can I but obviously I was wrong. I am not being hateful towards any studyblr because I know some people find having pretty notes helpful but I don’t have the time or find it helpful.
Fast forward to now. I have taken a complete different route. I make somewhat helpful posts(are they?) and I stick to what works best for me. I don’t use fancy expensive stationery and I post when I can and so far it has been working for me.
I find many studyblrs brush over the fact that some people can’t afford expensive stationery, don’t have the time to do pretty notes, don’t all have iphones and that some of us just wing it rather than spending all night doing a subject. I think there are many expectations in the studyblr community that need to be left in 2017. I think we need to speak out about our mental health, stop doing all nighters and break the stigma behind the aesthetics of the studyblr community. I’m all for messy desks, crappy photos and messy writing.
I want baby studyblrs to feel less pressure than I did when I first started because you don’t need pretty or expensive stuff to do well in the studyblr community. None of this is important what is important is the help you give others, the advice you get, making friends and learning things.
Basically all you need to do to be a studyblr is to study and do your best because that is all anyone can ever ask of you no matter what!
Find what works for you and go with that don’t go with the flow that never gets you anywhere! If that’s pretty notes go for it! If that’s a messy desk who cares!
Message me if you ever need help or advice or just want to talk because I am willing to help with anything
happy weekend 🌥
here’s some communication study!!
p.s i’d like to say thank you for the support and love this account has recently gotten!! i literally went from 22 followers to about 380+ in about 3-4 months even though i hadn’t posted much, and that’s crazy to think about!!
edit: um actually about 430+ i didn’t even realise HAHAHA silly me BUT THANK YOU 🌸
edit #2: WHAT THE HECK WHEN DID THIS GET SO MANY NOTES LORD i should maybe pay more attention to my studyblr.. but thank you all!! you sweet souls.
Some of you have requested that I show you my note taking technique. This is in no way a proven technique, but it really works for me and many of my professors have applauded my structure. So try it, and if you like it and it works for you, great! If not, I commend you on having a more structured system! These are my general rules when I take notes:
1. Leave space. A lot of space. While going through previous notes, whether it be right after class or a month later, I always found that I had information that I wanted to add, and cramped pages never allowed for that. Plus, it’s a bit less daunting on the eyes when there is some room between ideas. I do realize that this is not very eco-friendly, but hey!
2. Use the margins in a smart way. I have developed a “legend” of symbols to draw in the margins so that when I need a quick scan of what pages in the textbooks I referenced or vocab, I can find what I need easily. It might not seem useful on this one page, but when you have a whole 3″ binder full of notes, it’s a blessing.
3. Write on one side of the page. Again, not a eco-friendly option. However, I’m sure there are those of you (my past self included) who have wished you just had another page to write down book notes or additional thoughts without having to get a fresh paper. This solves that!
4. Make it pretty later. I know this page is visually appealing, but keep in mind that I was in my nice warm room by myself and listening to music while writing this. My notes straight out of class aren’t color coded and they definitely don’t have cute little decorations on them; just get the information down, worry about aesthetics later.
5. Put yourself in the classroom. You might think: “but I’m physically in the room what the hell are you talking about”. The concept is weird but it works. I always try everything I can to make sure I place as many visual cues in my notes as I can so that when I look back on them later I remember exactly where I was and what was happening. Are you not paying attention and thinking of food? Write it down. Did someone fart? Write it down. Placing yourself in the room is the most beneficial thing you can do for future you.
6. Keep it short. I can’t tell you how many times I freaked out when I first got to college because I was trying to write everything down. I was certain I was going to miss something. WELL HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU. You aren’t going to miss anything if you keep your bullets to a minimum of one sentence. It’s proven that short phrases in your own words help memory better than full sentences that the professor gives you.
Finally, make it yours. This is a system that works for me because my brain is weird and can’t take notes the Cornell or outline way. The most important thing to learn in school is your own flow of things. Experiment, be creative! I hope I have helped those of you who aren’t traditional learners realize that there isn’t just one way to process information. If any of you have any questions or need specific examples, let me know! (I realize there is a typo on this but hey don’t worry about it) 🙈
The more chapters a fic has, the MORE YOU NEED TO COMMENT.
I’m looking at all these fics with lots of kudos, lots of hits, lots of subscriptions I’m sure, and then *crickets* at an update. IF THERE ARE SAY 100 PEOPLE SUBSCRIBED, WHY ARE THERE ONLY TWO COMMENTS?? Let’s say only 10% of the people still read it. That’s ten comments that should be there.
Too shy or worried or blah to comment? Here’s some copypastes for you:
I love this chapter so much.
I love reading this fic.
I think about this fic a lot.
It makes me happy when I see there is an update.
This story is so intense and well-written.
I’ve been following since the beginning and it’s better than I imagined.
I’ve fallen in love with your characterization.
*quote your favorite part* This is my favorite!
This fic made me think about a lot of things.
I’ve learned some things about myself reading this story.
This is my favorite fic of all time.
I reread this all the time.
This is absolutely delectable and I love it.
Use one! Use all! There are endless possibilities! Don’t feel pressured to write an essay. Just say that you are still here and you’re happy!
It would be preferable for you not to say
Can’t wait for the next chapter!
It’s ok when combined with other things, but if that’s all you say…..? We’re looking for love on the hard work we just posted
When you post your first chapter/oneshot, you worry: “Is anyone reading it? Does anyone like it? PLease someone, anyone!?” and you wait for people to come into your space.
When you post your Xth chapter, you already know that people are reading it, there’s already a crowd gathered. Even if it’s only a few people, you know that they are there. “Does no one like it? What’s going on? What happened? Everyone loved it before?? I thought?? Did I mess up?”
NOT COMMENTING ON A MULTI-CHAPTER FIC IS LIKE GOING TO THE THEATRE AND NOT CLAPPING BETWEEN SCENES. LIKE THERE IS NO APPLAUSE AT INTERMISSION.
How do you keep everything so organized? What sort of study cycles/techniques do you use?
Hey! For the first question, here are some key details:
A huge influence is how organized my room is, because if it is already messy, I really don’t care about cleaning it or organizing other stuff; it’s like bleh, what difference does it make?
So if I notice my life is getting too messy, I try to clean and organize everything I can in my room (because it’s my study space too) and try to keep it that way with each passing day because it makes me feel like I have everything together. Sometimes it can be hard, but a few small actions (like picking up dirty clothes or notebooks) help.
I have always loved and preached the use of planners (this year, in my case, it’s an already set up planner in which I incorporated the Bullet Journal system). However, I never really took all advantage of it.
Last month, I started taking it seriously. Nothing fancy; I only write down stuff like:
- ‘Goals’ for the day (like how much water I want to drink, brushing teeth, make bed, etc)
- Stuff forwarded (how do you even say this?) from the previous day, if any.
- Detailed steps/small actions that make a bigger task, etc.
Really simple, I just write the stuff down and try to do them all and mark them as done.
The key to getting things done with a planner or any to-do list is:
you only have to write down like 3 or 5 tasks, nothing overwhelming.
do not be ambiguous (’solve 3 problems from Matrix chapter’ is better than just saying ‘study’)
try to sort them, most important tasks first
you pick the first thing in the list, start working on it
do not work on other tasks
Finished that task? Start working on the second one. Keep going.
If something you hadn’t planned comes up, deal with it and move on, keep working on your tasks.
If you do all of them and still have energy/motivation, do something else, create a new list, whatever
you don’t have to be productive all the time.
I try to sort everything into categories, so I know where everything belongs. Everything has a place, so when something is used, I have to know where to put it back before things get too messy.
Now to the second question.
How I study:
What I normally try to do is:
Solve past exams and as many practice problems as I can.
Last semester, a TA told us that practice guides are not meant to be completed; make sure you know how to do the easy ones and start with the complicated ones, they’re usually a combination of the simple stuff.
Take notes on class and explain what I did on a problem (even ‘multiplied by x and added y…’) so I don’t get confused if I ever try to study from an exercise.
Since I’m an engineering student, my classes are basically all math-related stuff, but this counts with basically every subject: annotate.
DO READINGS. Try to know what comes in next class, how and why some stuff works, etc.
Ask, ask, ask, ask. Any doubt will only grow and drive students to despair when the final comes.
Some things I have learned
There was a time when I was not ever sure if I was going to pass my classes, and I learned a few lessons:
Most teachers do help. That’s how I noticed doing all the homework was actually worth it, even the smallest one. They don’t really care about the contents, some of them just want to see you take their classes seriously.
If a student who did poorly on exams but turned all the homework in, is struggling, teachers will probably come to the rescue.
Some people are not really friend material. They can drag you down and distract you from your priorities.
Be yourself. If something matters to you, go for it. Likewise, if grades are not really important to these people, you don’t have to follow them.
Free time of others does not mean your own free time. Know what is best for you.
This does not mean ‘BREAKS NOT ALLOWED HERE’. Take care of yourself.
Sometimes, even though I felt like I studied pretty hard for something, I would just get back a really disappointing grade. Am I worth anything less? Nah, next time it will be.
There is always room for improvement.
My best grades always came from studying like a week in advance or revising periodically.
I hope this helps (and sorry for the late reply). Good luck!
I did it. I got through all of the death note movie. And now I can explain to you why life is a nightmare and I hated the movie. And I'll put it in bulletpoints so y'all and your gnat attention spans can understand my rage and quickly.
- LIGHT IS PORTRAYED AS THE VICTIM. The VICTIM of his crazy manipulative girlfriend who killed the “good guys.” And the victim of the evil demon named ryuk who just likes to kill people for funsies.
-L was good for the first half. Then he went completely out of character and started running around screaming at people. THEN IT IS IMPLIED THAT HE KILLS LIGHT IN THE END WITH THE DEATH NOTE.
-“misa” likes to kill people and loves light. It’s not so different from the original cuz misa was definitely a sociopath in love but it was fucking dumb how she was used to victimize light and make him out to be the poor boy who just wanted to help people.
-light turner’s not intelligent at all. When l is on his trail, he just…stops murdering people. He has a breakdown the second they come onto his trail.
-there are no fucking mental battles until the END. and even tho the end was more death note like than anything else in the movie, it doesn’t make up for the fact that everything else in the beginning? Watered down. AMERICANIZED so that we could have pathetic action sequences and gory deaths.
-the ending like…the Ferris wheel and the pre planning from light? Ok fine that was very death note. Convoluted and it did adhere to death note’s rules. But it waited too fucking long. The entire movie was a horrible cliched mess of gore and pathetic attempts at suspense and “build up.”
-because of the wasted philandering, we never got to see l and light battle. We never got what made death note interesting because Netflix wanted so desperately for us to think death note was a horror thriller thing.
-AND IT FAILS AS THAT. like if you wanted to change the genre GROSS but ok, but they didn’t even do that WELL.
-they threw in a scene at an abandoned orphanage and made ryuk creepy BUT IT WAS WEAK AS SHIT CINEMATICALLY and it fucked up the already weak attempts to make the tone “suspenseful.”
-ryuk never felt like a threat. light never felt like a threat. L was supposed to be one of the threats light has to face, but they barely interacted and when they did? No tension whatsoever because of how little they were mentally battling.
-death note was unoriginal. it didn’t take the concept and create a new, interesting take on the original. It didn’t stick to the original to please old fans. It appealed to no one except maybe 13 year olds who liked Bonnie and Clyde nonsense…and they don’t even get that, since those two stupid white fucks double cross each other. And one dies.
-I just don’t
-who the fuck
-hackneyed lines. So many.
-lines that didn’t make sense.
-the plot to find L/Light was supposed to drive the movie but it faltered and halted for no good reason? Like why are they trying to arrest L now? Just because he suspects light?
-and are we supposed to be sympathetic to light? Fuck that kid, he’s a whiny idiot. X
-and…I just…im tired of talking about this movie now. I want to lie down and never speak or think about it again.
What's the difference between hoodoo, voodoo, and rootwork? I'm kind of a beginner witch and am researching all I can about the different kinds of witchcraft, even the ones I don't practice. But all three get lumped together in everything I read. Are they interchangeable? What even is the correct spelling of "voodoo"? And can you recommend some good places to start researching. The last thing I want is to disrespect anybody!
They’re related, but not the same thing. Hoodoo is just an umbrella term for a bunch of other practices that originated in the Western part of Africa. It’s considered just folk magic, not a religion. Southerns of the US practice this, especially Christians.
Voodoo has 2 branches: Louisiana Voodoo, and Haitian Voodoo [Should have been spelled Vodou. You’ll see why later]. It is considered a religion. The only difference really between the 2 is the ritual order (Louisiana Voodoo doesn’t have much of it.) Voodoo is a combination of religion and folk magic (and if you know anything about the history of Voodoo and where is came from, you should know why that is).
Rootwork is just that. Working with roots and flora. Of course, in the past, you used the local plants in your area and today, its much easier to get roots from other places in the world.
Rootwork and hoodoo are actually interchangeable. Of course, with these definitions they don’t look like it. But if you were to use both words interchangeably to a hoodoo practitioner they most likely wouldn’t bat an eye. And to be a little bit more specific, you use rootwork in hoodoo as it is one of the practices used in hoodoo.
You can also use rootwork in voodoo, but rootwork does not equal voodoo. And hoodoo does not equal voodoo. So~
Spelling is actually important to know. I think it doesn’t get talk about a lot in the community except for a random tumblr post or blog post floating about saying how that person hates it when people always spell it one way and dont know the other ways. And why theyre used.
(Correct me if I’m wrong anyone) ‘Voodoo’ is not only the mainstream version of the spelling but usually refers to Southern Voodoo or Louisiana Voodoo. ‘Voodoo’ is actually seen as derogatory and wrong to some in Haiti which brings me to the other way spelling it. ‘Vodou’ (or ‘Vodoun’, ‘Vodun’, ‘Vodu’ and sometimes ‘Vudu’) usually refers to Haitian Vodou. You’re going to see the different spellings used all the time. But know that when Someone is saying ‘Vodou’ they are mostly talking about Haitian Vodou and when people say ‘voodoo’ theyre either lumping all voodoo together or theyre talking about American Voodoo. And, all Voodoo came from Coastal West Africa (From Nigera to Ghana).
Also, when it comes to researching, you’re not going to get much when it comes to Voodoo since information is passed by word of mouth. Hoodoo on the other hand is everywhere on the internet. A quick google search and a quick YT search will get you so much.
Quick note though, If you see anything related to LuckyMojo, take it with a grain of salt. The owner of the website is a bully, and pretty much infiltrated and made money from a community that was never hers.
