who helped me get out of my laziness

If Stars turns out to be a third version Alola game, here’s some things I’d like to see:

-More styles of clothing for character customization. Compared to all the styles the XY protagonist had–dresses, coats, stockings, different styles of shirts and skirts, hats, and various accessories–it doesn’t feel like we got as much this time. I mean, it’s not like a tropical region like Alola has much use for coats besides on Mt. Lanakila, but it’s kinda hypocritical of our protagonist to ask Kukui if he’s cold while running about in a halter top and capris.

-Bring back Supertraining, even if it’s something you’d only get postgame. Grinding for BP for Power Items can be a pain, especially since the Battle Tree seems to be a step up from the Maison, and the Pelago takes a while.

-Plaza/PSS hybrid. While I like the Join Avenue aspects, it can be annoying trading with friends who live states away or in another country, It took me and my friend from the UK quite a bit to figure out why we weren’t showing up on each other’s Plaza.

-Our two story-mode cameos, Colress and Grimsley, should get more of a role, likely helping Nanu do some investigating of Skull/Aether. I’ve already brought this up in a prior post, but Nanu’s very vaguely implied not to trust the Aether Foundation/Team Skull, but is supposedly a lazy dude–he didn’t want to be a kahuna, Acerola pretty much gives us the impression Nanu told Kukui to piss off when he offered Nanu a spot in the Alolan E4, and he lets Team Skull run amok on the island, even to the point where they’ve taken over an entire town. But the Acerola brings it up that he’s the one protecting the wild Pokemon from TS, and instead of relying on Aether for help, just does it himself. Maybe he might’ve suspected a connection, since we do later find out he knows about the UBs and was in the International Police. Maybe he could’ve used his connections and had them send over Grimsley (a E4-level trainer would be of use in battles) and Colress (having been arrested sometime within the two year timespan for abusing a legendary Pokemon, but worked out a deal to escape prison if he helped investigate? Also, he is a scientist, so he could’ve been useful investigating the UBs)? I imagine Unova is not terribly far away from Alola, as both are part of Pokemerica.

-Plumeria and Gladion accompany you and Lillie to the UB’s world, and have the four of you come across a possessed, unhinged Guzma. (However, I think Plumie should be the one to battle him, or be the one trying to get him to come back to his senses.) Just for the additional creepiness factor. :D

-Necrozma gets more of an explanation, and possibly another form. (The fact its idle animation is beating itself in the head implies there may be something wrong with it. Like, it’s….broken or something.)

-We get more of an idea on just what happened to the pre-Gen6 dimension, because Anabel’s being in this new dimension and muttering defending the Battle Tower is incredibly vague, but still pretty disconcerting. Seriously, even if the dimension wasn’t outright destroyed like a lot of people had theorized, I have to wonder just what the hell happened there and what the full outcome was.

-Also, the possibly additional Looker from ORAS? Is he a Faller? I would presume ORAS happened recently enough since we also get Wally in the Battle Tree and he looks like he hasn’t aged a day. What’s become of possibly-Faller Looker? Did I miss something? (…Or will we find that out in a Sinnoh remake/next Gen?)

-Guzma and Gladion get a role in the postgame. (I mean, the entire mess with the Ultra Beasts was Gladion’s mother’s fault. It surprised me that he never got any major plot scenes past the raid on the Aether Foundation. Also, Guzma’s a Faller too, and was even possessed at one point.)

TBH when I say I’m depressed I feel like a liar. I feel like objectively I am lazy and maybe burned out but just need to fucking get my shit together.

Though I’ve come to care about this a little less it’s like ok well if I say I’m not legitimately depressed does this mean you’ll help me kill myself? If not then who cares right. Just do it.

guardian angel!chenle

im so in love with chenle sfdshfjsdfklf im an unloyal hoe markhyuck look away

-and his cheeks flare up what a bABY

-”w-why would they think that??”

-he was your best friend for years dude

-you literally couldnt remember a time where you were happier

-aaand that’s why everything went downhill :((

-chenle knocked on your door at like 9 in the morning on a saturday smh and was like “wanna go on an adventure?”

-so you were like “:(((( ok” 

-you felt like something was wrong but you kinda just ignored it

-so on your walk the bad feeling pursued because chenle was so awkward during it

-eventually you two ended up in a park and he stopped you two

-”hey…. y/n i need to tell you something”

-”yeah chen?”

-DONT MAKE THIS HARDER THAN IT ALREADY IS SDFBHDSLFKNKM

-”… im leaving… i got the message a few days ago and-”

-”wait… what?

“… im sorry”

-”youre sorry? i guess you werent sorry enough to tell me earlier?”

-”y/n, please listen to me-”

-”when are you leaving?”

-”… in two days”

-”two days? two days? so youre just going to throw this friendship away, huh? we’ve been best friends for years! youre just gonna leave like this?”

-”you know i dont have a choice!”

-and you did

-you knew he didnt have a choice but god you were so fucking in love with him and he was your best fucking friend you had every right to be mad but you also had every right to sit the fuck down

-”… y/n?”

-”dont ever fucking talk to me again chenle.”

-his last day was monday

-and somehow the entire school knew he was ‘moving away’ so all the girls flocked to him

-he didnt care about any of them tho

-all he cared about was you

-but you couldnt even look in his direction without tearing up

-no bff chenle interactions for the entire day :((

-after school you two walked together in silence

-right as he dropped you off he mumbled “im leaving tonight”

-you clenched your jaw to bite back the tears and spit out “fine.”

-you didnt know whether or not to go over and become best friends with him again but he was gonna be gone in a few hours so what’s the point?

-youre too stubborn to apologize anyway

-at around 10pm you started getting fidgety because fuck what if he’s gone already what if it’s too late?

-but then your mom came into your room and told you chenle was waiting for you at the door so you felt a smol weight being lifted off your shoulders

-”you know im leaving in two hours right?”

-”yeah and?”

-”… y/n cant you be my best friend again? for another two hours? for our last two hours?”

-chenle was a desperate hoe but you were lowkey too so

-”… dont you get it chen? if we become best friends again… even for two hours… it’ll just make everything harder”

-at that point chele just couldnt take it anymore

-”god youre so fucking dumb y/n”

-”… what?”

-”havent you noticed? everybody else in school has and fuck, probably even the angels too. everyone else but you”

-”noticed what?”

-”noticed that im so god damn in love with you”

-you slapped your hand over his mouth and hissed “shut up youre not supposed to fall in love with humans!”

-”so you dont like me back huh? i shouldve known.” his eyes became glossy and dark and he looked like he was about to cry

-you decided ‘fuck it lmao he’s leaving in 2 hours anyway’

-”chen youre a fucking dumbass ive been in love with you for so long and you didnt even have a CLUE”

-chenle stopped breathing for a good minute before he grinned and glanced up at the sky

-”god im about to be thrown out of heaven for you”

-before you could even question him he presses his lips against yours and rests his forehead on yours when he pulls away

-you didnt even realize you were crying until you felt chenle wiping your tears away

-”youre the only thing that ever made me feel this way, you know? i just thought being an angel was easy because we had no feelings but… i guess i was wrong.

-y/n i-”

-”dont say it. you know theyre listening and-”

-”i love you.”

-*cue cliche drizzle of rain*

-”chenle…”

-”say it back to me before i have to leave because god am i going to get in so much trouble for this”

-the rain came down harder like it was egging you on so you said fuck it and

-”chenle i love you too.”

Reach an advanced level in German by yourself

Someone on tumblr asked me if they could reach an advanced level in German by themselves. They didn’t have teachers who worked enough with them and I felt really sorry because sometimes teachers/schools just suck and you can’t reach the language level that you want to reach.

So I want to give you advice and share personal experiences. I hope it helps. I already want to apologize for mistakes in this text because I’m not a native English speaker. 

Classes: I can’t stress it enough: Language classes are so important! If you are at A1/A2/B1 level, you really really really should take classes so you can improve your German. At B2 or a higher level, it’s still good to take classes but you have already reached a good level you so don’t necessarily need a teacher. Teachers are important, they can make it or break it but especially at lower levels, you need them. I want to learn Dutch & improve my Italian with an app and a website but I am too lazy. I really need a teacher who gives me homework, explains things, hands out sheets with exercises, who makes you read stuff out loud, wants you to write grammar rules down and tests you. It is important and it’s a great motivation to do things because you really have to do them unless you want to get in trouble. Teachers are very helpful. If you can’t take German classes at school or if you don’t go to school anymore, try to find a language club or classes in your freetime. I really recommend it. Language classes are very important and helpful. I don’t say that apps and websites are useless but take classes if you can!

Books: Reading helps you when you want to reach an advanced German level. If you read books in class, try to write down and translate the words you don’t understand. Start a journal about the book, summarize the chapters, add some descriptions of the main characters and their relations… I always did this (especially when I had a (oral) test about the book) and it was very helpful! Sure, it can be hard work but it’s worth it. I recommend to read books in your freetime, that’s what helped me to reach higher levels and to get an advanced vocabulary. You can start with simplified versions of German classics or with ‘normal’ German books. On my blog, there are so many posts about books and you can always ask me if you want me to recommend you one based on your interests. You shouldn’t start with reading books written by Schiller or similar authors because their ancient German can be quite confusing (even for native speakers like me). Read the books, keep a journal, look online for opinions and discussions about it. By the way, I always read foreign language books out loud so I see which words are difficult to pronounce for me.

Movies: Movies are perfect to improve your German skills. Watch them in German with subtitles in your language. Then start to watch movies with German subtitles. If you find a German movie without subtitles, try to watch it. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t understand everything they say! Actors tend to mumble so not even native speakers understand 100% of what they say! Watch as many movies as possible, check out the pages on my blog, ask me if you want me to recommend one! If there’s a film you really loved, try to find informations about it on the Internet or write a review in German. Movies are great to learn more about slang. You could also watch kid’s movies or shows because they speak slowly. German YT Channels are also a great possibility.

Writing: If you want to reach advanced writing skills, try to find a penpal. You can do this on my blog. Write them text messages, mails or letters on a regular basis. Ask them if you have a question about grammar, slang or the country. Tell them to correct your mistakes. Maybe you can visit them one day, it’s really so much fun! I highly recommend it! Try to write texts in German; poems, short stories, thoughts, diary stuff… None has to read it if you’re not comfortable but please write and look up the words you don’t know. If you have to write something for class, make an effort and try to write a very good text! Correct your mistakes afterwards and try to remember what exactly you did wrong so you won’t do it again. Join an internet forum and talk about your interests.

Grammar: Pay attention when your teacher talks about grammar stuff. Write the important things down, buy a grammar book if you don’t have one (you can also buy a more advanced one if yours from your class is too easy). Work with it on your own, try to understand the rules and ask your teacher if he/she could explain you what you don’t understand. Ask him if he/she could give you extra exercises or grammar stuff (that’s what my teacher did because she knew I had a higher level than others). Do as many exercises as possible. There are B2/C1/C2 level books with speaking, writing, listening and reading exercises, I highly recommend them.

Music: Listen to German songs. You find tons of examples on my blog. Listen to German radio, look at songs lyrics, try to translate them or look up translations. Try to sing along, try to understand the meaning behind the songs. 

Visit German-speaking countries: If you can, visit German, Austria or Switzerland! It’s great to be surrounded by native speakers. Try to order your food in German. Don’t be shy, people won’t laugh at you unless they’re verdammte Scheissidioten, die in der Hölle verrecken werden (sorry not sorry). If you speak to natives and they laugh about something you said because it sounds funny to them, don’t be sulky. Ask them what you said and how you should say it and let them explain why it was funny so you get a chance to laugh too.

Talking: Talking is very important and to reach a higher level, you really should take classes because that’s where you can talk and learn how to pronounce the words correctly. If you don’t/ can’t take classes, try to talk to yourself in German or to friends or sing or read out loud in German. Try to speak in German when you visit a German-speaking country.

If you want to reach an advanced level by yourself, you have to work hard even though you might not always be very motivated. Just remember that you’ll be very happy in the end! It’s worth it! Message me if you need help or if you have any questions!!!

Platonic My Ass - Tony Stark x Reader

Authors Note: Tony Stark is cool just imagine this <- THIS IS WHAT I HAD WRITTEN AS AN AUTHORS NOTE WHEN I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA ACTUALLY POST IT LOL. LET’S LAUGH AT MY CRINGE WRITING. I kinda went in and tried to edit it a bit, so I hope it’s not THAT bad.

Masterlist. Request List.


You were lucky to have Tony Stark as one of your best friends. He would help you with your science projects, and you would help him with his. You did help him finalize the first official Iron Man suit- he promised you twelve percent of the credit.

And what was even better is that your friendship is truly platonic.

Well, most of the time.

It all dates back to a Tony Stark party. It was right after the Avengers had taken down yet another Hydra base- and you were there to help your friends celebrate. Plus, who doesn’t love a good excuse to drink?

When Tony throws a party, he usually has girls all over him. But he decided, that since you did so great on helping them with the mission, that he would talk with you the whole night. It had been a long while since you and Tony just had a normal talk over a drink or three. And that’s what you miss probably the most since he became Iron Man- but you’re also helping him help the world, so either way, at least something is good.

But this one specific party, for some reason, just got different. You were positive that you and Tony would just talk nonsense like best friends normally do, but since you both had seemed to have one too many drinks, your platonic friendship had taken a turn.

It wasn’t like either of you wanted to hook up with the other, it just, kind of, happened.

And neither of you were looking for relationships at the time either, which made it a little weirder the days that followed.

Would anyone be interested in working with me?

I have a handful of projects that I want to knock out this summer. 

- Creating a youtube series on Java

- Working on a music album

- Working on a novel

- Working on a video game

- Maybe rolling out a mobile app

All of these are fun projects but the size of some of them are going to be larger than I can handle by myself. Thankfully CSST will be working a little bit on the youtube series, and I have a very talented musician helping me with the album.

I also have a handful of artists who are lazy as heck but eventually will produce some cover art for my projects. 

Just fire off a DM and I’ll get back with you ASAP :)

hey i’m dash. this is nixon. he’s a new character for me, which is pretty much unheard of since i hate making new characters lmao, but i love him already and i hope y’all will like him too. i’m gonna put some stuff about him here since my lazy ass hasn’t written out all of his stats, etc yet. :/

bitch the boy

i havent posted in like, a month and a half?


i’ve been gone cause its been hard. a lot of stuff happened. eventually i got to see a psychiatrist.

i got some fun diagnoses ! im not dumb, i knew what i had. it was obvious. i just kept denying it for a long time. thats why everything i do sucks so bad. my art is so lazy, raw and messy with mistakes everywhere because thats the only way i can do anything

but i have started recovery.. slowly. ive been getting better. im still frustrating, im still upsetting, and im still disappointing. but overall i think i am improving a little bit.

@earthmindheartsky has been helping me through a lot. She is an amazing friend and person in general. i probably wouldn’t have made any unmedicated progress without her help. so yea, check out her dog blog bbs

and thank you to the folks from bandcamp who came to check out my blog and got me music and stuff…it was so surpisingly kind and it was just.. really cool. i dont have a way with words as you can see. so just, thankies

i havent gone through any of my followers blogs in a while but i dont want to stress myself out even more by going through every single one so, if you would like me to check out your stuff, just message me or something ok?

in the meantime, i just uploaded some stuff. i’ll probably be going on sporadically like usually, and just queue things. so in the future i might not actually be online if i upload something

The zipper was stuck. Again. It keeps getting stuck on this stupid bit of fabric that I meant to cut out ages ago.

“Shit!” I mumbled to myself, slapping my hands to my legs in frustration. “Who’s home?” I yelled out, waiting for a reply.

“I am.” I could barely hear him, but I think it was Dan.

“Can you come help me?” I yelled back, earning a groan from him.

Tadashi/Dashi
Chikako, Junko, Hisa (the Fujita sisters)
ft. Bartholomew the sphynx and a silhouette of Hiro. 

A collection of Black Fox AU drawings I’ve been working on. I got a bigger project I’m working on for this AU. The whole story I guess.

To sum it up so you can understand these images better:
Tadashi was saved from the fire by the Fujitas and brought him back to their hideout. Tadashi has no memory of who he was or his name, other than ‘Dashi’, so that’s what the girls call him.
As a way to repay them, and to keep an eye on his new sisters, Dashi wears a mask and follows them when they go out causing trouble/robbing and helps them get out of tight situations.
Of course, Big Hero 6 hears news of a new masked man in the city and find out he’s with the Fujitas. A bunch of fights and confusion happen and also there’s an adorable lazy hairless kitty named Bartholomew, “Barty” for short.

This AU was created by me and hxneylemon with her Tadashi and my version of the Fujitas.

I’m so tired of these men calling women “ gold digger.”

Yeah, I’m in my early 20s just starting out in life and career, you are an older man with millionaire dollar (or more) company. Damn right you should want to buy me shoes and purses and pay for my rent and classes. 

If you want to date someone who has their shit together and doesn’t need your help, DATE. SOMEONE. YOUR. OWN. AGE. Stop hitting on college aged females. 

I think women need to reclaim what it means to be a gold digger. It just means we’re not stupid enough to date an older successful guy without getting something out of it. It’s not a bad thing. It does not make us weak or lazy. It does not mean we are not slowly building our own empire. Because we are. 

Women are so much more stronger both emotionally and mentally than men and the idea that we can have their wealth too will terrify a weak man. And will turn on a strong one. 

I want to submit some of my art for the amazing book is not on fire (obviously) but when I look my drawings, I just feel that they’re not good enough and I try to draw something but I can’t and I get stressed out. Anyway, I want to ask you guys, what is your favorite drawing? what do you think I should submit? I hope you help me with this bc you’re so important and I mean it, I really care what you think so please help me with this and I’m so sorry for my crappy English, I’ve learned English just watching doctor who and Sherlock and I’m too lazy even to use Google translate so sorry if is really bad:(

hiii, friends. i’ve been holding off on writing this post because i was hoping i could dig myself out of this little hole of mine, but things seem determined to steadily get worse, so in for a penny, in for a pound, i guess (that’s a terrible pun. excuse me).

so the thing is, i’m broke. i’ve been broke for as long as i can remember, so it wouldn’t be that much of a problem in an ordinary situation, but this year, unless something goes really wrong, i’ll be moving to scotland to attend university. this, of course, brings with it tons of expenses - plane tickets, rent and deposit, things like pots and pans and plates and other stuff i can’t exactly bring with me. i currently have two jobs, but even combined, i earn just about enough to pay for gas, toiletries, and the occasional snack when i’m working a nine-hour shift. i also currently have a commission in the works, and i am very happy to have received it, but i’m a slow writer, and it’s difficult to find motivation for reasons i’ll mention below. i’m looking for more work, of course, but that’s slow as well - there aren’t a whole lot of vacancies in this town, unfortunately.

mostly, though, it’s the conditions at home that have pushed me to write this. i live with my mother, who refuses to help me financially, and takes great delight in reminding me every day that i’m fucking up my future - how, i’m not sure - and that “being lazy” and “sitting on my ass all day” won’t get me anywhere in life. she refuses to acknowledge the fact that i handled the entire university application process entirely by myself, which is a huge thing for me, and belittles all my efforts to find work. i have explained, again and again, that i care and worry about my future constantly, and that getting out of bed most days is a fight, to which she suggested i should probably lose weight to feel less miserable (which, no). she’s been quite intense with the throwaway comments and outright hostile towards me at times, to a point where i literally hide when she comes home so i won’t have to hear what she has to say. i’m having trouble sleeping and have started losing a ridiculous amount of hair, and the past few days, i’ve either had no appetite or haven’t been able to keep food down. i am literally so stressed and anxious i’m perpetually shaking, and more than anything, i just want out. i currently collect pension from the state that goes to my mother and more or less pays for keeping me under this roof, but i might lose my right to collect it soon, and i am genuinely scared of what might happen then. i’ve mostly got everything set up to do leave come september, except sufficient funds. 

i have seen my fandom and this website in general do incredible things, so i’m turning to you all. i would be so incredibly, eternally grateful for anything, be it a signal boost or some change you can afford to send my way. my paypal e-mail is tintulka11@azet.sk, and i also have a donate button in my sidebar, where you can donate without a paypal account. again, thank you so much for anything and everything, for even reading this post. i love you. 

Humans

I hate the education system.

It doesn’t hate me because it doesn’t care, which is worse.

Someone once said intelligence is what you’re left with when you forget all of what you learned in school. I believe the only reason we could ever forgeteverything is that we’re being taught poorly.

I also believe education has nothing to do with advanced Maths, or knowing how many countries are out there. I believe that it is knowing who you are — having an unshaken sense of self, a desire to grow and discover, to learn, to be. Spirituality is also a part of education, but it’s different from religion, which has lost its meaning by way of countless mistranslations. However, there is still a chance for us if we stay aware of the fact that there is something beyond our ego, our day to day mask: the self, or the soul. It knows a lot more than our limited consciousness does. It answers, so to speak, the very popular lyric in that “Cotton-Eye Joe” song. Where do you come from? Where do you go? You might not know immediately, but that’s OK. It’s not about where people want you to go, or where it’s “safe” to go, because if you’re going where you should, you’ll be fine no matter what. It’s just how it goes.

And even if you don’t believe in that stuff, there is still more to education. “School prepares you for real life.” That right there, ladies, gentlemen, and all those in between or outside of the binary altogether, is straight upbullshit. School’s got nothing to do with life. School is the Queen of Hearts. Broke the rules? Off with your head! Period. It teaches us to apply identical methods for solving identical problems, not taking into account that

  1. There are hardly ever two identical situations in life.
  2. Sometimes a problem exists for other reasons than needing to be solved. Sometimes it exists so that we can learn something from it. Sometimes it exists to never be solved, but stared at until we realize there was never a problem at all.
  3. There are so many variables in life we will never know the “value” of, that it makes most problems unsolvable by way of standard methods.

Life is what happens during school. School, in its current shape, distracts you from it. It will not teach you about taxes until eleventh grade, which is not even compulsory here, and some of us are not lucky enough to get that far. They all think we’re lazy and dropping out. Maybe we’re ill. Maybe we’re poor and need to work. Maybe we ran away from home.

They won’t teach us about relationships (especially abusive ones), about sex and raising children. Strike that. Functional children. It will not teach me how to help my mentally ill and suicidal friends. I’m learning that on the fly. Because for some reason, human beings are so much less important than attendance, than standardized tests, than grades. And even the teachers who care will sometimes forget about us, will get carried away.

Instead, they give way too much momentarily unnecessary information we would voluntarily elect to learn if it weren’t already being shoved down our throats. I will only want to know more than immediately necessary (which, in maths, is first-, maybe second-degree equations) if I want to specialize in that field. Bonus points for all of the studies ever made proving that homework is entirely ineffective, and most school systems proving they do not fucking care, to quote a friend.

I do not want to feel like the secondary product of a system that is only interested in generating impressive statistics. I am not a tool. I am not a locker you cram scraps of paper and books into. I am not here to offer information on command. I am not a computer; you do not need to program me.

I do not need to wear a uniform.

It does not symbolize unity. We are only united by the mutual sense of rebellion that we struggle to tune down, but not suffocate, for our own sake. A certain institution’s symbol does not mean we belong. It only serves to convince it that it owns us. It would be like farm animals suddenly finding scarves that say “Slaughterhouse” a must-have.

It does not symbolize respect. As I’ve said countless times before, prioritizing people only because they’re older or above you in some hierarchy, letting them have the last word when they are obviously being ludicrous is not respect, although it has been referred to as such forever. Respect is something that has to do with our inner moral values. You respect someone when your interior compass points the same way as theirs. You can still argue with that person, and disapprove of something that they do or say.

And more often than not, “respect” is the knife you hand us with the sharp end first. You say “We will respect you if you respect us.” You mean, “We will treat you as human beings IF AND ONLY IF you treat us as authorities.”

This is just the beginning of a long list of things we didn’t learn from you, but you could learn from us.

Before we are your tools,

Before we are your students,

Before we are members of society

Or the children of the respective owners of fragments of our DNA,

We are humans.

Hey! What would the Gom+Kagami do when they hear their S/O suddenly yelling because they saw a huge gross bug or cockroach in their room and telling them to get rid of it somehow? :D tuvm!

I hate creepy crawlies. I hate them. I HATE COCKROACHES! T_T I am seriously seriously freaked out by them kyaaaaa! T^T But I love you for requesting this~ :3 Please do continue to support me! 

Kuroko would be by your side in an instant, and be really helpful in getting rid of the cockroach because he would use his lack of presence to sneak up on it. 

Kagami is definitely deathly terrified of creepy-crawlies, especially something as disgusting as a cockroach, and would probably yell louder than you even as he tries to attack the roach with a pesticide spray and fails. 

Midorima would bust into the room in full exterminator kit, carrying about six brooms, five swatters and six different types of pesticides. He is always prepared, nanodayo. 

Kise is also, like Kagami, deathly afraid of roaches and bugs, and would opt to scream loudly with you until further help arrives. “[]-cchi, I-I don’t think gokiburi-san here is a f-fan!”

Aomine would be too lazy to kill it at first, but will squash it out of annoyance when it runs over his shoes or his magazine. “The only one who can touch my magazines and shoes is me!" 

Akashi would at first be intrigued by the cockroach as he had never actually seen one up close before, but then would be greatly infuriated by how it “refused to listen to his orders and get out of your room”. 

Murasakibara would not care whatsoever at first - but then the cockroach would run over his food. Then all hell will break loose.

Honestly, I'm tired of this self diagnosis stuff. Autism isn't an accessory, it's not something you have an on/off switch for and its not something you just decide you haven't. Everyone screws up in the social world, but try not being able to function there at all. And try having your senses so accute that a seam in a sock feels like a knife of your foot. Oh, and try NEVER BEING ABLE TO WORK PROPERLY. I've lived with this my whole life, and all this does is make people not take it seriously. Ok?

the root cause of self-diagnosis is the pyschology & medical world being terrible. the thing you want to be angry at & rallying against is not self-diagnosis; it’s the underdiagnosis & biased/outdated diagnostic criteria & other prejudices that create the need for self-diagnosis.

also. i personally have dropped out of education with bare minimum qualifications & am now struggling to get a job. mostly right now i barely leave the house or get out of bed. i will definitely never be able to get the job i want (i would love to write for a living but i will never be executively functional enough to manage that). i am in the process of getting a professional diagnosis. 2 of the other mods have a professional diagnosis; 1 of the other mods also dropped out of school & struggles with getting out of bed, let alone leaving the house.

your assumption that to be pro-self-diagnosis you have to be self-diagnosed is worrying & harmful.

we resent the implication that self-diagnosed autistic people are not struggling in the way professionally diagnosed autistic people are. when i realised i was autistic it was an incredible relief because i’d spent the previous 13 years of my life thinking i was lazy & selfish & broken. because that’s what the adults in my life (the ones who were meant to notice i was autistic & help me) told me. & that’s the problem here.

our blog is supposed to be a safe place for all autistic people, including people who are unable to get a professional diagnosis for whatever reason (money, safety, racism/classism/homophobia/transphobia, other forms of gatekeeping, etc), because there are many reasons to not get a professional diagnosis. a professional diagnosis is not the only way.

As a kinda socially arkward penguin i don’t post here very often and i think this is the first time, that i posted some cosplay pictures.

At first. I love this costume so much and it feels good to wear it. This is a big “THANK YOU” to all the people who helped me with it, gave me support and kicked my butt to get this thing finished. Especially a big Thank you goes out to @bonesonmyface for being an absolutely awesome person and sharing her knowledge with me. Without you this wouldnt have been possible for me.

Also Thank you to Kisa & @thepiisite & @discombobul8d & @riddletmr​ for kicking my lazy butt and motivating me.

And of course THANK YOU @artflowercosplay for these awesome photos !

I made Hawke for the Eurocosplay Finals 2015 at MCM London and had such a great time there, meeting cosplayers from other countries.

Tonight
Black nut // MC기형아
Tonight

[Translated by rilakkunn]

[Chorus]
Maybe if I jump or spread my wings
I know I’ve been wrong about these things
I don’t care if no one else believes
I think that if you believe it then maybe we’ll make it
Tonight, Oh tonight
If you believe in me like I believe in you
Tonight, Tonight
Because impossible is possible tonight

[Verse 1]
When I wake up, the first thing I do is frown
I check my phone even though no one calls me
Slightest bit of expectation I had disappears with the setting sun
I wake up as it starts getting dark out the window
When sweet dream reaches its peak, that’s when I wake up
With the shabby scenery set in front of me,
I can’t help but to frown as I open my eyes
In my small, confined room filled with cigarette smoke
I clear my throat and spit before turning on my computer
I listen to new uploads from amateur rappers
and even though I snort as I say, “What the hell, this sucks”
I endlessly deplore the laziness inside of me
My thoughts become blank when I grab the pen, my heart feels heavy
I’m actually envious of you, who give their best at what they do

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Before I fall asleep, I hide inside the blankets and fantacize
So I can forget about my worthless day and fall asleep peacefully
Probably most of my fantasies include having sex with girls,
Becoming a famous rapper, paying off the debt and becoming successful
Then I wake up, my roommate showing me a picture of me sleeping
and the expression I had seemed so pitiful and pathetic
My mind is filled with jealousy, and so I fall deeper as hit rock bottom
I always longed for valuable things without putting in any effort
So everyone left me, seeing how pathetic of a guy I am
The reason why I rap is not just for the money
It’s so that I can become famous
and have the friends who left my side come back to me
Will I be able to fall asleep tomorrow with a joyful mind?
I continue to live day by day with that hopeful question

[Chorus]
