Rainy nights where the house is so quiet that only the cascade of precipitation falling outside can be apprehended, tend to be the nights where you discover yourself aimlessly pondering, digging yourself further into a dispirited state. Nobody is home, there is nothing to divert you from your pondering mind and the sound of rain tapping the roof drop by drop, and abruptly all at once in an inconsistent manner. You can’t help but mindlessly neglect every text message or call that appears on your phone, completely dismissing everyone —Your Dad, Sister, Best-Friend, and Harry— while you aimlessly pass the reserved hours. You tend to keep yourself occupied so you don’t have to deal with things sinking in, so you don’t have to acknowledge the harsh world of reality. There are no more study notes that need writing, there are no more books that need arranging in a precise way, no more clothes to fold, or files to file, everything is done. Nothing is left to keep your mind off the inconsistency you feel, nothing is left but counting the spaces between the rain — a few seconds before it all sinks in—
The ride to
the downtown of Tagawa was filled to the brim with uncomfortable silence. The
magtrain drove into a tunnel, painting their compartment with pitch black. Anakin kept twitching in his seat, bored to

downright ridiculous. Master had not spoken a word since they had left the
is it at all viable to try and self-teach yourself how to design and build games? is having gone to and graduated from school an absolute must? or can you still be taken seriously and considered if you've never gone to college?
Yeah, it’s totally viable to work on games without formal training. One designer I know is a former professional basketball player. Another was a marine biologist. A third was a self-taught programmer who never finished college. But what they have in common is a relentless dedication to games, a drive to internalize and learn the skills necessary to make games, and the talent to know when to use those skills and how.
In terms of being taken seriously in the game industry, beyond the initial screening by recruiters, we honestly don’t care too much about whether you have a degree. What we care about is whether you can do the work. The degree is supposed to mean that you have some minimal amount of knowledge on the subjects. It means that you’ve at least been exposed to commonly-accepted concepts and theories. It does not, however, guarantee skill or talent. Skill and talent can only be exhibited through your decisions and experience.
We need you to convince that you can do the work. If you can’t explain to us why you can do the work, there’s no reason for us to hire you.
If you don’t have a degree, you’re going to need to show us that you have the equivalent skills and understanding that one would obtain in school. That might mean teaching yourself programming, level design, or animation. That might involve building your own game levels, or mods, or even an entire game. That almost certainly means you must have something you can show us that demonstrates what you’ve done. You must also be able to talk about your work in depth. If you can’t exhibit mastery of your own project, how can we expect you to learn our stuff?
Remember, we don’t just hire the first candidate we find that passes the minimum requirements for the job. We’re looking for the best possible candidate out of the total pool of applicants. You’re going to be compared to lots of other candidates, especially if you’re applying to a popular AAA studio. Many studios get hundreds of resumes on a weekly basis. If you want the job, you’ll need to persuade us that you are the best candidate out of all of the applicants. That means you must show us that you can do the work better than all of the other candidates, including those with degrees. Not having a degree won’t necessarily stop that from happening, but it means you more to prove than someone who has one.
Imagine being married to Jamie and getting held at gunpoint
(A/N: For the anon who requested this, sorry for the wait and I hope you enjoy. Just to let you all know that the next Jamie imagine will be the part two to the eloping and being Sonny’s sister one. And that will be out soon. I feel bad for making you all wait so long. Hope you can enjoy this while you wait!)
Imagine being married to Jamie and getting held at gunpoint
“Well, good morning Officer or should I say good afternoon.” You teased as you leaned back in your desk chair as your husband Jamie let himself into your office.
“Don’t rag on me, Y/N. I got up half an hour ago.” He sighed, as he sat down heavily in the chair opposite your desk and put a wad of papers on your desk, “Here is those case files you wanted.”
“Thank you,” You pouted before blowing a kiss and grabbing the files, “did you really only get up half an hour ago?”
“It’s my day off.” He shrugged, “Don’t you think I would be wearing my uniform if I was at work?”
“I assumed you went undercover without telling me again.” You stated, taking an all-knowing sip of your coffee.
“When will you let that go?” he sighed once again, leaning on his hand which he rested on his armrest.
“I forgive Reagan. I never forget.” You smirked.
“Don’t I know it.” He commented, flashing you a grin.
“Well, you should. You married me.” You shrugged before winking at him.
“I did and it already feels like forever.” He yawned dramatically.
“It’s only been three months.” You glared.
“And it’s the best decision I ever made.” He corrected, reaching out and grabbing you hand over the desk.
“Hmm,” you agreed, swinging your clasped hands as you went to take another sip of coffee, “You’re just saying that because if we ever got divorced. I would destroy you and I would do without the court fees.”
“You know I have a law degree too.” He pointed out.
“Yeah, but I’m a really good lawyer with actual real-life experience. So much so that I am ADA for the Manhattan District Attorney office.” You argued.
“I have Erin.” He countered.
“You know Erin would be on my side.” You smirked.
“You’re probably right.” He agreed.
“Aren’t I always?” you winked.
“I let you think you are.” He corrected.
“Please, you argue with me any chance you get.” You protested.
“Just keeping you on your toes.” He winked.
“Aren’t husbands supposed to help their wives relax, not stress them out even more?” you commented.
“I could say the same about wives helping husbands.” He countered.
“Yeah, but your version of what you want me to do to help you relax is different to what I want you to do to help me relax.” You stated, trying to be serious but you couldn’t help the smile that crept onto your face as you thought about it.
“And you have to admit that my idea is way more fun than yours.” He flirted.
You went to dispute but nothing came out so all you did was drop your mouth open and wake your arm at him dramatically.
“No argument Counsellor?” he teased, clearly enjoying himself.
“None at all.” You gave in, “We are in agreement.”
“And they said that marriage is a series of compromises.” He commented gleefully.
“Speaking of marriage,” you said, rolling your eyes, Check it out.”

can see the sweat on his forehead from the front door. He closes it fast,
dropping his bag on the ground.
a good way to lead if you want me to believe you,” Philip says, immediately
approaching him. When he gets closer he sees Lukas is trembling, and he presses
his hand to Lukas’s forehead and panics at how hot it is. “Lukas,” he says,
not sick,” Lukas repeats, but he bends over a little bit more, groaning.
thomas sanders is friends w/ some high school drama teachers in my town and he'll just show up to rehearsals after school and be like "can i use these children to make a vine" so that's the story of how 16 year old me is in the background of like 5 thomas sanders vines. also he was the substitute teacher for my drama class once. at the time i thought he was 19 so i was like ??? but nope he was 24 w/ a fuckin bachelors degree in chemistry.
You could have stopped him before he was too powerful.
Ok wait u can cook, like cooking, and help w/ homework? In my next life i'll be ur child.
Yeah, absolutely! I love cooking - esp for other people, mostly because when something tastes good, I wish I could share it! And yeah, haha, I cook every single day, so yeah, haha - I’d better know how to cook ^_^;
As for homework, dude yes. I tutor in almost all subjects and almost all levels, so yeah. Feel free to private message me for homework help if you need it?? Hah. My 3rd job is tutoring actually ^^
Hello! I'm currently a psych undergrad student and looking into masters and PHD programs. My neighbor happened to just graduate with her biology undergrad, and she skipped masters and went straight to getting her PHD. Is that possible to do with clinical psychology too? Or do you have to get your masters degree first? Thank you!
so typically in clinical psychology, you don’t have to do a master’s first. that doesn’t mean you “skip” it- you just do your master’s while in your PhD program. there are some PhD programs that don’t include a master’s degree, but you’ll do most or all of the requirements of a master’s on the way to your PhD anyway, so it’s not a time saver. It does mean that you can just go to one program and get all your requirements done there.
woah, what do you have a degree in?? i wish you luck with finding a job too <3
Organizational and emergency management. Unfortunately, soon after I graduated, trump became president. He cut funding drastically to nonprofits (to give more to the military) so jobs I could have had are now voluntary only. Unfortunately, I cannot make a living doing voluntary work…
If you old enough to have a master degree than you too old to be running this dumbass blog
Lmaoo what? That dnt even make sense bitch. Can run a blog and be educated lmao. Ignorance is a disease. But I see you mad tho. Young black woman in re 20s with a masters just doesn’t sit right with some of y'all fucks lmao. DIDDY got a PHD and still be in the clubs like he 21, I’m sleep tho. I guess when you educated you too OLD for some shit lmao But buy some stance socks or listen to questions while I get my masters with my OLD ass bitch! - Doreen

Welp judging by your blog. Stydia has a better chance of ending up together rather than Sterek lmaoo... Stiles isn't gay and neither is Derek idk where people think that they dig each other romantically lol yeah no.
Well hello to you too :)
I’ll have you know i have a degree in statistics and taking into account the text so far i say sterek has a significantly better chance of going canon than stydia. In my opinion the text supports the foundation of sterek romantically - it’s just not a mutually agreed romantic relationship yet.
And equally the text supports stydia as a friendship rather than a romantic relationship, and it’s the best developed relationship on the show at the moment. It’s just not the kind of ship you’d think it would be given normal tropes of nerdy guy and popular girl. But Teen Wolf loves to flip tropes on their heads.
The progress from boyish crush on stiles’ part and total ignorane on lydia’ to this wonderful duo who respects, loves and cares for each other albeit entirely platonically is perhaps Jeff’s greatest achievement to date.
And as for your argument about stiles and derek not being gay i couldn’t agree more. Stiles isn’t gay - he clearly likes girls. But the text also shows us - rather overtly i’d say - that he also likes guys. The only thing missing is a huge poster or stiles screaming it from the roof top at Beacon Hills Memorial Hospital.
Derek is also clearly not gay, and i’d agree he’s harder to pinpoint with regards to his sexuality than stiles. In fact during the first few seasons you could argue he appeared asexual even. I wrote a post about derek’s sexuality not long ago and instead of rehashing everything i’m just going to link to it. sterekmeta also made a post on the subject that i recommend you read. The conclusion is that if anything Derek does seem to be pansexual and that gender is irrelevant when it comes to who he loves or not.
If you don’t see Sterek then you don’t, and that is fine. The fandom should be big enough for all ships, and we should be able to co-exist and respect each other’s opinions.
C: Now this confession is gonna hurt some feelings (men mostly) but it needs to be said. I’ve been told by numerous black men that I intimidate them. But the truth is I LOVE it when men say I intimidate them! It’s because it deters the fuck boys I don’t wanna waste my time on. I absolutely hate it when people say that one of the reasons black women can’t get a partner is because their standards are too high. What the hell? So on the one hand you tell us to respect ourselves and to not “give it away to anybody” but then when we do have standards you say their too high?? I’m attractive, have a college degree (and on my way to being published), funny, a good cook, and fun to be around. But I gotta settle??? Get the fuck outta here! I’m not gonna date/marry a guy just because he finds me attractive and treats women halfway decently. Being respectful to women is the bare minimum! Don’t even talk to me if you refer to women as bitches and hoes. I’m not saying I need a guy who’s a millionaire but I want a guy who’s trying his best to succeed. Nothing wrong with working at Mcdonald’s if you have a higher goal in mind. Matter of fact I’ve never heard a black woman say “my future husband has to make six figures, own a mansion, and blah blah blah”. Racial preferences are wrong but having other types of standards are fine! If a woman only wants to date a man who has a college degree then that shouldn’t be seen as having too high of standards. That’s a legitimate preference. These men who say they want “wifey material” don’t wanna put in work so they can become “husband material”. The same guys who say “I want a 10, who can cook, clean, have a good body, long hair, a good job and blah blah blah” are the same dudes who are a 3 on a good day, not even looking for a job, can barely wash their ass, and have the personality of a dry sponge! At the end of the day I’d rather be single than settle for a guy I won’t be happy with. And even though I’m “intimidating” I’ve still managed to have a few boyfriends
Let me list for you some of the many ways in which you might be afraid to live a more creative life: You’re afraid you have no talent. You’re afraid you’ll be rejected or criticized or ridiculed or misunderstood or—worst of all—ignored. You’re afraid there’s no market for your creativity, and therefore no point in pursuing it. You’re afraid somebody else already did it better. You’re afraid everybody else already did it better. You’re afraid somebody will steal your ideas, so it’s safer to keep them hidden forever in the dark. You’re afraid you won’t be taken seriously. You’re afraid your work isn’t politically, emotionally, or artistically important enough to change anyone’s life. You’re afraid your dreams are embarrassing. You’re afraid that someday you’ll look back on your creative endeavors as having been a giant waste of time, effort, and money. You’re afraid you don’t have the right kind of discipline. You’re afraid you don’t have the right kind of work space, or financial freedom, or empty hours in which to focus on invention or exploration. You’re afraid you don’t have the right kind of training or degree. You’re afraid you’re too fat. (I don’t know what this has to do with creativity, exactly, but experience has taught me that most of us are afraid we’re too fat, so let’s just put that on the anxiety list, for good measure.) You’re afraid of being exposed as a hack, or a fool, or a dilettante, or a narcissist. You’re afraid of upsetting your family with what you may reveal. You’re afraid of what your peers and coworkers will say if you express your personal truth aloud. You’re afraid of unleashing your innermost demons, and you really don’t want to encounter your innermost demons. You’re afraid your best work is behind you. You’re afraid you never had any best work to begin with. You’re afraid you neglected your creativity for so long that now you can never get it back. You’re afraid you’re too old to start. You’re afraid you’re too young to start. You’re afraid because something went well in your life once, so obviously nothing can ever go well again. You’re afraid because nothing has ever gone well in your life, so why bother trying? You’re afraid of being a one-hit wonder. You’re afraid of being a no-hit wonder
tip! dont be pressured into getting your degree as fast as you can. i know far too many people that have degrees for careers they decided does not fit them anymore and there is nothing scarier than having a chunk of debt for a piece of paper you might not even use.
bounce around. change majors. take breaks from school. travel. get to know yourself. trust me. I’m 23 and I just figured out what I wanted to do with my life (part of it has to do with the sheer lack of funds, but that’s not what is being discussed). I’ve done the years of shaming myself, but the biggest and best lesson I’ve learned is everyone takes life at their own pace. i’ve met people in their 30s and 40s go back to school and reinvent themselves so please don’t beat yourself up if you’re not going fast or as fast as you’d like. I’m most likely going to be in school for way longer than I’d like, but I can’t change the reality, only my perception of it, and I choose to not see it as a negative thing.
America has a nasty habit of making you feel like a worthless sack of crap if you aren’t using every ounce of your time towards something productive. This is your life, and you’re in charge of it. As long as you have a path that’s all you need to focus on. Not the speed in which that path is being taken.
