yay it works now

random college tips

i. get to your classroom early if you don’t have a class beforehand

not only are you guaranteed the best seat in the house, but there’s something about being in a classroom or lecture hall that makes you feel productive and focused. bring a book or writing assignment for a different class with you and just Do It

ii. pack your bag the night before

especially if you have early morning classes and are not a morning person. this will help you have a less stressful morning and will help you make sure you have everything you need for the day prior to leaving your dorm

iii. don’t overannotate

annotations are designed to help you identify the most important parts of the book/novel, meaning important themes, character development, big events, the implications of said events, etc. by over highlighting and over annotating i can guarantee you you aren’t doing yourself a favor !!! i’m gonna make a post later about how i annotate so be on the lookout

iv. stay on top of your readings

seriously. it is a pain in the ass trying to catch up on a week’s worth of reading in five different classes. it is stressful, it’s time consuming, and it’s exhausting. even if you’ve had a long day and you’re not in the mood to read an entire 20 page chapter in your american government textbook, just do it !!! your brain and your mental health will thank you the next day

v. try your hardest not to miss class

i’m mentally ill and prone to sickness, so i understand that sometimes it’s hard. it also feels worse when you miss class and have no idea what’s happening, so if you think you can get out of bed, lets get to class so we don’t fall behind and get extra stress thrown on top of us!

vi. fridays are homework days

think of it this way: if fridays are homework days, saturday and sunday are free days !!!!

vii. proofread your papers before you turn them in

guys i literally never do this (i know i’m a bad egg) and im always suffering for it. if your college/university has a writing center/something similar please go there, especially your freshman year !!! they will help you learn how to accurately and succinctly convey your thoughts on a college level and you will be so grateful later on i hate myself

viii. ask if the professor prefers a certain citation style

if you dont get a chance to ask during the class/lecture, send them an email. i once got my grade halved because i didnt use APA when the professor didnt specify on the syllabus/assignment sheet. so do urself and ur gpa a favor and ask

ix. always bring extra pens/pencils to class with you

somebody will forget theirs and they will sit next to you and if ur in a class with 30+ ppl that has group projects or presentations coming up you’re going to want friends

x. college kids love gum

if u bring gum you got all the friends in the world my guy i dont know why this is a thing but it is. one girl cried during exam week last year because i gave her a piece of my gum and that was literally the highlight of her week

ok thats my random ass list of stuff regarding college !! i’ll probably make more masterposts like this b/c this was fun as heck. if u have any questions/need advice, just hmu !! you can check out my other masterposts here.

I don't know why but your Kuro gives me a lil langsty feels, I mean Kuro went touchy touchy on Keith, but also wants to tap Lance, and what if Lance falls for him but is sad bc he thinks Kuro just wants to have a one night stand with him, he bursts into tears in front of Kuro bc "I want to be loved, and you just want to do me" what is ofc not true - I mean he wants to do him but he also loves Lancey... or something... ok now it sounds all overly dramatic, in my head was better XD

I started writing one or two fanfics about this.

Like Kuro at some point realizes, that he has a crush on Keith… but that’s it. There’s something missing. At the same time his bromance with Lance kinda escalates, but he doesn’t know how to handle that situation. What if he’s misinterpreting all this?? What if Lance isn’t into him, too? He has no idea about relationships for fuck’s sake. D: In the meantime Lance suffers in silence.

So Kuro tries and keeps everything the way it is now… and that kinda works, until a “yay, we saved the planet”-party happens and he and Lance get drunk and well… they kinda end up sleeping with eachother.

From there on everything turns into a total mess, because Kuro can’t express his feelings and Lance doesn’t know how to deal with his jealousy and low self-esteem.

There’s a lot of crying and avoiding eachother until a mission goes wrong and Kuro kinda jumps in and takes a shot to the chest for Lance. He almost dies and confesses to Lance, because he’s afraid he’ll die without ever telling anyone - even though EVERYONE except Lance knows.

Of course Kuro makes it and the first thing Lance does, is kiss him before he can jump into the next life threatening situation. :D

Why was Zhan Zheng Xi so cold and distant to Jian Yi in the beginning of 19 Days?

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I NEVER KNEW MOST OF 19 DAYS IS SET IN THE PAST WHEN THE BOYS WERE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL BEFORE JIAN YI DISAPPEARED FOR 3 OR SO YEARS ON THE SECOND DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL

AND YOU KNOW WHAT BREAKS MY HEART??!!!?!??! I was so freaking confused why in the first 54 chapters, Xi was so violent to Jian Yi and I only realized TODAY that this is because after all the days they spent as best friends, AFTER ALL THE RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPMENT,

After going through ups and downs that threatened their friendship and surviving that,

External image
And Xi wanting to understand his best friend more and developing a more gentle side for Jian (his one true love he just hasnt realized it yet coz oblivious af),
External image
External image
After all of Xi gradually being able to let his guard down, accept his feelings and have the courage to share them to Jian Yi,
External image
External image
After all the times Jian and Xi spent building a relationship that was getting closer to something much more than friendship, JIAN YI’S DAD GETS HIM ALL KIDNAPPED AND SHIT ON THE SECOND DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL?!?!?!?!?!?!

JUST IMAGINE THE PAIN AND ANGUISH XI FELT HAVING LOST HIS BEST FRIEND!!! HIS ONE TRUE LOVE!!! Xi even thought he’d never see Jian again.BRUH WHEN JIAN WAS KIDNAPPED THE FIRST TIME AND WAS GONE FOR TWO DAYS, XI WAS A MESS ALREADY AND LOSES HIS SHIT WHEN HE GOT A TEXT FROM JIAN YI TO MEET UP!! THAT WAS 2 DAYS. WHAT ABOUT 3 OR SO YEARS?!!?!

Have you ever wondered why Xi is so violent and cold to Jian in the first chapters and the original one shot?

Look at the difference between middle school Xi taking care of drunk Jian

External image
and university Xi dealing with drunk Jian. Mind you in the timeline after his disappearance, Jian has been shown to be an alcholic despite not being able to hold his liquor (HINT: HE HAS SERIOUS PROBLEMS).
External image
Well that’s because after losing Jian Yi and thinking he’d never come back, do you think Xi is ready to just let Jian Yi in that easily again considering the pain and suffering he might go through if Jian Yi disappears again? No. It’s not going to be that easy. All that closeness and intimacy from middle school is switch with cold hard distance after Jian comes back.

Obviously Xi still loves Jian. I think that in times that Xi really needs comfort and affection, Xi won’t be able to resist. Why else would he keep letting Jian come over to his apartment all the time? But it’s difficult to return to how things were in the past.

Xi gets defensive through violence over the smallest things like casual flirting or a slight touch unlike back then where he’d only glare or simply tell Jian off when he gets all touchy. I mean Jian gets punched and sht too but its not as violent and cold rejection.

External image
Jian must go through so much again trying to close that gap between their relationship but even he has his own secrets and problems that he’s not willing to share.This makes this scene:
External image
even more devastating knowing shit will hit the fan in the future. Jian Yi did come back after 3 or so years, but it’s going to take a long time for Xi to forgive.

GOD I FEEL SO STUPID FOR NOT REALIZING THIS SOONER OMFG. I GENUINELY DID NOT MAKE THE CONNECTIONS OKAY. OMFG AND WHAT HAPPENED TO TIANSHAN IN THOSE FEW YEARS WHEN JIAN WAS GONE?? Are they the “everyone” Jian was referring to when he said “Getting together with everyone was so much fun.” in one of the first few chapters set after his disappearance? SO MANY QUESTIONS. SO MUCH PAIN.

EDIT: none of the images work and idk what to do. Help? Edit: they work now yay!

How I draw Sebastian: Toboso Style

This is my tutorial on how I personally go about drawing Sebastian Michaelis, from Kuroshitsuji! (It isn’t the only way, I just find this works best for me. Many others will do it differently, its just about finding what works best for you) It is quite long, so i’m sorry if it drags on… This is especially for @bannu219 <3 I hope you find this helpful! I apologise for taking such a long time to finish it ^^ 

  • I first start with a circle for the top of the head, and roughly outline the chin. You will probably change this later and modify it, so don’t focus too much on making it ‘perfect’. Its simply a foundation for you to work detail into later. Make sure you are always light with your pencil, as you will be rubbing this out. You certainly don’t want dark lines remaining there. 
  • Yana herself stated that when she always draws Sebastian, she starts with his bangs. I find this give me a rough idea where the place the eyes and proportion his features correctly. The top of his head will always be a little higher than your sketched out circle, as you can see. In this particular sketch of mine, the wind is picking up Sebastian’s hair, that is why I have drawn it in this particular way. Also, have a rubber handy, so you can erase your foundation layer of pencil work. 


  • Next is the sketch of features. If you do a rough ‘prototype’ of his features, you can use your judgement on whether the proportion is correct and if it looks like him. Instead of working a lot of detail into an eye for example then realising it is out of proportion, too wide or small and having to erase it. This rough basis is perfect for testing out facial expressions and how to size everything correctly. 


  • Remember when I said that it was likely that you would rub out the outline of his face? Well I had to. I saw that the features I had drawn were too big and his facial shape too small; I needed it to be longer and more defined, to match his masculine jawline. 


  • When you are fairly happy with your outline of facial features and proportion, next is when it starts to come together; the finer detailing. You need to make sure you have erased all out of place lines and anything messy-looking. You want lines to look fine and concise. Bring together lines and shapes to form a more rounded and fluid finish. Make your ‘rough outline’ look more like a ‘sketch’. Basically, join lines together and tidy it up.  
  • Work into his eyes. Remember Seb has very distinctive, streamlined eyes. They usually look calm and strong, fringed with dark lashes. They are not cutesy and wide (Like our Ciel’s…) more fierce and intimidating. Work in finer detail, and tidy it up. 


  • Yay!


  • Now, I want to make a point here. This was my first finished Sebastian. It looks okay, however, to me something is a bit off about him. ಠ_ಠ I worked hard to get this result and I found that it wasn’t quite what I had imagined. (I’m not saying it’s bad, but because I drew it, I can point out flaws. You are naturally more critical of your own artwork. I am a bit of a perfectionist too, which is frustrating for me because sometimes you think something is wrong when its fine.) BUT I changed it. If your drawing frustrates you, go have a break and eat some chips or something then come back to it. A clear mind set really helps (Or maybe I just love chips  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )  What I’m trying to say is: Don’t be disheartened if your drawing did not turn out as you wanted it to. This happened to me, but I kept working into it and I changed it to what I wanted. After eating chips.

Now ladies and gentlemen, we are finished. As you can see, I changed the size of the eyes, and played around with their location. I also changed his jaw line once again. Everything needs shifting and changing when it comes to art. Proportion is everything - if you feel there is something not quite right about your Sebby, it is likely you need to change the size or position of your features. Sometimes a too long nose or chin will result in a too long face and vise versa. Sometimes this small difference is hard to spot, but once you do it can turn your picture around. If you cant spot it, just send me a picture and I can give some advice (to the best of my ability anyway) Even i’m still learning. But of course, the only master of drawing Sebastian will always be his creator!              If you have anything to say or questions, please feel free to message me!                   (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ     Thanks for reading, have a sinfully sweet night everyone <3

Something quick before I sleep (was working all night >.> but a few days off now so yay)

I thought of this at work because I am agonizingly waiting for my RFA vip package and Seven cushion to arrive ;u;

Being the 4th wall breaking goof he is, I figured why not lol xD

Besides, the ticket– THE TICKET!!!

IT’S WAYYYYYY TOO ADORABLE NOT TO USE

I spent a lot of time trying to recreate it to a similar appearance and it was worth it lololol (Gonna try to learn to imitate that handwriting ._. maybe)

I’m very bad at making dialogue if you can’t tell. Sorry I suck. orz

Btw, is it better if I answer asks like this from now on? (By making a separate post rather than answer directly)
