Help me come out safely

Hello I am an 18 year old finnish trans man living in a conservative household. Although my parents haven’t been physically violent (unless you count my dad tugging on my sisters’ and my hair when we were young), they have very bad tempers and tend to blow things out of proportion. Both of them are very anti-lgbt in every single way.

I am making progress on starting my transition (I got my referral to go to the trans polyclinic but on average getting your diagnosis here takes at least 6 months). They will inevitably notice me being away from home more than usual and they don’t respect my privacy very much (or at all). In the end, I’ll HAVE to come out to them. I’m sick of living a lie anyway.

I plan on writing them a coming out letter, leaving it somewhere where they’ll find it and getting the hell out of my house around New Year’s eve 2018. If I’m going to escape their initial wrath I’ll need to be away for about a week. I have a supportive boyfriend who would be willing to spend this time with me except… he lives in the Netherlands. He has enough money to cover his flight (at least partially?) but he’s estimated we’ll need approximately 800€ for a week living in some airbnb apartment (finnish hotels are crazy expensive) as well as to be able to eat. I have nowhere else to go and I think that if I somehow found some dumpster to hide in alone for a week, I’d either freeze to death or spiral into a very dark mental space - which could prove to be just as lethal.

Although I’m looking for a part time job, I know it wont be able to cover the whole cost in time. I’m afraid and I feel so alone right now.

If you’re able to donate, even the smallest amount helps. If not, signal boosting this post would also be significantly beneficial.

I could also do rune readings on my witchblr broomupmyass@tumblr.com for 5€

word count: 2,268

warnings: so many perspective changes, i didn’t proof read it, swears (duh), mention of genetalia (jared says dick), um and i think thats it???

WITHOUT ANY FURTHER ADO…..

Fuck.

Y/N: uhhhh

Jared: I can pick you up from school on Monday?

Shit, school. If you saw him at school you wouldn’t be able to just walk past without tackling him in a hug… and then he’d find out.

Y/N: i don’t know if i’ll go to school that day, i think i’m coming down with something.

Jared obviously knew you were lying. So he lied back.

Jared: But we have that special assembly

Y/N: we do??

Jared: Yeah I forgot what it’s on but I heard it’s super important.

Y/N: shit then i guess i have to go

Y/N: what period is it?

Jared: End of the day

Perfect, you could just go last period and leave and not have to face Jared confrontation until… Tuesday.

Y/N: u know what?? just remembered i have plans?

Jared: Can’t you get out of them? I feel like I’m worth it ;)

Y/N: lol of course you are! but it’s family bowling night so,,,, no

Jared: Well it’ll happen eventually.

Jared was right, it would. A lot sooner than you wished, too. After quickly convincing your parents to skip all but last period, you texted Jared good night and then fell asleep full of anxiety of the day ahead.


Days have passed. The amount of times you have seen Jared pass you in the halls and you haven’t said anything is unbearable, for the both of you.

Jared would have to pretend like he didn’t know who you were and continue just walking, Evan’s talking mumbled by his thoughts. He didn’t even make eye contact with you and has only seen you in his peripheral vision.

And, fuck, his peripheral vision didn’t give him much to go off of but you looked fucking amazing. A million times better than just seeing you on Instagram from his phone. Seeing you out of the corner of his eyes for a split second every now and then almost killed him.

Jared: Wait I have no idea how to do APBio project

Y/N: ugh too long to type and explain

Jared: Then just FaceTime me lol

Y/N: uh…..

Y/N: my hair is messy

Y/N: and im in my pajamas

Y/N: so no

Jared: and I care because????

Y/N: i care!

Jared: Fine then call me

…Should you? I mean, there’s no harm. It’s just your voice. But what if you get major phone anxiety or he thinks your voice is ugly.

Y/N: i was about to go to bed :( sorry

Jared: Bullshit it’s like 10pm

Before you could respond with a snarky comment, your phone started buzzing and Jared’s ringtone (which may or not be ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’) started playing.

Fuck.

You answered it but immediately muted yourself.

“Uh… hello?” You said nothing. “Y/N, I know you’re there, it stopped ringing,” he chuckled a bit. You face flushed when he said your name. “Ok, whatever. Anyways, so this project. I kinda dozed off when Ms. Years was saying all the instructions so I thought I could ask someone else from the class but the only person I know was absent and so I tried to ask Ms. Years what to do and she just gave me, like, a vague and sarcastic response and I remember you talking about Ms. Years and you’re probably a good student so…”

As Jared rambling continued you started to feel more and more guilty. You clicked the home button and went back to texting.

Y/N: jared tbh i really don’t wanna explain i barely even get it myself i wouldn’t know how to explain

You heard his phone vibrate and he stopped talking and sighed, “Okay, we’re doing this. Well, y/n, I really don’t to fail this project. I can barely hold a C so I need to get a good grade on this.”

Y/N: i thought u were like,,, top of ur class??

He chuckled, “Yeah in all of them except fucking biology. That godforsaken class will be the death of me.” You laughed and your feelings sank when you realized he couldn’t hear you.

Y/N: bio is like the one class im good at

Jared chuckled and your heart fluttered, “Of course you are. But…” he dragged out the word and you frowned.

Y/N: i know, im just nervous

He sighed, “I guess I’ll ask someone else?”

Y/N: sorry :(

“Yeah, yeah.”

And with that, the call ended.


Almost a week passed and Jared wouldn’t barely talk to you. If he did it was one or two-word answers. So when he sent a paragraph it surprised you.

Jared: Ok so I wrote into Catfish I wanna get your opinion on my letter.

Jared: I’ll just copy and paste

Jared: “Yo Nev and Max,

It’s ya boy, Jared. So y/n is my soulmate, I haven’t really talked with them for long but, get this, I’ve never heard their voice and they’ve only sent me one picture! I know. And, even crazier, we go to the same school and are in the same grade! So when I looked for a y/n y/l/n in our yearbook, I did not see the face from the pictures but someone completely different! I know, it’s wild.

If you would help me, that’d be dank lol thanks.”

Jared: I feel like it’s funny and they’d prob pick it up because it’s not like any of their other stories!

Jared was obviously being sardonic and passive aggressive. In any normal situation, you would’ve responded with wit but all the things he said started to process in your head. You could almost hear the gears turning in your brain.

Jared: y/n, why did you lie?

Y/N: i’m so sorry, jared

Jared: …y/n, why did you lie?

Y/N: i was insecure and scared? i know i know thats not a good enough excuse but i never thought id get caught

Jared: You never thought one of these days one of us would just crack or cave at school?

Y/N: i almost did plenty of times tbh

Jared: The amount of effort it took for me to not just run up to you whenever I saw you were…. tremendous

Y/N: how long have you known?

Jared: Literally since the beginning lol

Y/N: gdi

Y/N: im so sorry

Jared: Can we, like, actually talk now or FaceTime or something, please?

Jared: It’s in the middle of the day so dont say you were about to sleep

Y/N:

Jared: Oh no what is there more?

Y/N: im aNXiouS

Jared: So fucking am I! Actually seeing your face and hearing you speak at the same time is literally all I’ve wanted since I had a panic attack on your thigh

That warmed your heart made your goofy smile stick onto your face. Something surged within you and you decided to make a bold move.

Less than a ring later, Jared’s forehead popped up onto your screen. “Holy shit, you initiated it,” he breathed. Your camera was facing the ceiling, “Where are you?”

“Contemplating whether or not to hang up and just cry instead.”

Jared gave a shaky breath but you saw the corners of his eyes scrunch up, meaning he was smiling. “Someone grab the camera my baby said their first words!”

You snorted, “Oh my god, Jared.”

“Fucking hell.”

“What?”

“Just… so much happened in a split-second, I got a little dizzy.”

You stifled a laugh but your smile was still ridiculously wide, “What do you mean?”

“You laughed, no, you snorted, y/n, and damn it was adorable and made my heart, like, stop for a second. Then, oh boy, then you said my name and my heart stopped again and then I almost hung up the call to call an ambulance.”

“Why didn’t you?” you pressed on, teasing him.

“Prop up the camera so I can, like, look at you while you talk,” he told you, not answering the question.

With a shaky hand, you obeyed and the camera showed you, cross legged on your bed, and fiddling with your fingernails. “Now you do it.” You refused to make eye contact with the camera but out of the corner of your eyes, you saw Jared look at his screen in disbelief and immediately found something to lean his phone on. You really could only see his torso and up, but it was more than enough.

You looked up at him through your eyelashes, your nerves eating away at you.

“Shit, you’re stunning.”

The corners of your mouth perked up, “I would say the same but from what I’ve seen, you’re much more adorable in person.”

Jared smirked, “Damn right, I am. But holy shit, I just want to take a moment to appreciate your… charismatic smile.”

You snickered, throwing your head back a little, “Charismatic? That’s not usually a word I hear to describe someone’s smile.”

“Not just someone, you.”

“Jared, you’re such a sap.”

“It’s a charming quality, right?”

You and Jared stayed together, talking, for hours. You only realized it when the sun started rising through your window.

“Shit, we have school, Jared.”

“Wait, just… Stay right there.”

You did and you saw his phone flash. “…Did you just take a screenshot of me?”

“The sun made your skin glow. It was too enchanting to not take a screenshot.”

You giggled at him and saw the screen flash again. “Jared!” You scolded, “You’re lucky you’re my soulmate.”

“Sorry! Your laugh was captivating.”

“Did you just pause me?” you asked him, feigning offense.

He snickered, “I wanted to see how photogenic you look in these screenshots. Just gimme a sec.”

“‘Kay but you owe me a Redbull!”

“Deal. What time is it?” he asked.

“Six. Why?”

“Maybe we should both take a quick catnap and I’ll pick you up,” he offered.

“And end our fifteen-hour call? Never!” you laughed, doodling on your arm.

“Y/N… stop drawing dicks on my wrist.”


Jared ended up opting out of picking you up because he knew he wouldn’t be able to keep his hands off you for an entire car ride. So as you were waiting for Jared in the cafeteria, you bit your nails and looked around the room again as if he’d magically appear.

Jared, however, saw you. You had your back to him and Jared couldn’t believe this was actually happening. He swallowed his fears and slowly walked up to you, a Redbull in hand.

Before he could reach you, some girl he sort of recognized walked up to you and started talking to you. He couldn’t hear the whole conversation, it’s was like quiet mumbling, but he could tell you were on edge and not really paying attention to her.

Suddenly, Jared and the girl made eye contact. You only then realized it was Alana. She waved at you, “Hey, Jared! How’s your morning been?”

Both you and Jared froze.

Jared took a deep breath and cleared his throat, unaware of the blush forming on his cheekbones. “Well, I owe y/n here a Redbull and I wanted one too but the store only had one, so I guess we’ll have to share it.”

You slowly turned towards him. “Jared,” you breathed. “…JARED!” you now screamed, sprinting the short distance between you and clutched onto him, tears rolling down your face.

Jared staggered back a bit but took your embrace and wrapped his arms around you. “Holy shit, this is real. You’re real,” he said quietly in disbelief.

It felt like hours you two were just there, with each other. Finally.

Alana snapped a picture just before you and Jared slowly pulled away from one another. He held his hands on your waist and you held his biceps. The both of you just stared at each other, smiling, and taking in every feature. “The janitor’s closet next to the math wing is, like, never used.”

“What?”

“If you lovebirds need a secret place,” she winked and walked away. Jared’s face flushed and you could only muster up a nervous laugh.


After lunch, you didn’t have any classes with Jared. So by the end of the day, you were craving him.

You leaned against his car, waiting for him. Once you saw him exit the building, you called out to him, “Jared, hey!”

He looked instantly relieved to see you and jogged to your position. “Need a ride?” You nodded and held his hand in yours. He squeezed it then let go, “Get in.”

The car ride home was silent, but not uncomfortable. Just being in his presence gave you joy. When you reached a stoplight, you grabbed his right hand and pulled it towards you. You held it on top of your thigh.

“It’s gonna be hard to drive with one hand,” he chuckled.

You rubbed the back of his hand with your thumb, “I think you can manage.”

He got to your house not too long after and when you let go of his hand, both of you felt empty. You sighed, “So…”

“So?”

You gathered as much courage as you could in a split second and leaned over the console, giving him a quick peck on the cheek. Before Jared knew what was happening, you were out the door, walking to your house, and waving at him.

Jared raised a hand to where your lips met his skin and his felt his hot cheek. He probably was the same shade as a stop sign, but he didn’t care.

With grin basically tattooed onto his face and a twinkle in his eye, he drove himself home, feeling like the king of the world.

You realize how many people suffered under communism right? Capitalism isn't nearly as bad as you make it out to be. Source: my grandparents suffered under soviet rule

you realise how many people ARE SUFFERING under capitalism right fucking now? Yall dumb bitches always talk about “boo hoo so mamy peolle have suffered under communism theyve been killed :::”“((((((” but NEVER mention how many people have died under capitalism because of refused healthcare and capitalist greed driven wars. people are being refused healthcare to because its prices are impossibly elevated to the point where in america a fucking ibuprofen at the hospital costs $15 sometimes so the people who own the privatized healthcare can profit from your pain? How you need to be a millionaire to afford cancer treatment? how college costs $40000 and up. you pay for fucking EDUCATION which should be free it is a human right development and education is a right everyone should have u dumb bitch. Fucking children must WORK until night to afford living and afford their education (if theyre lucky to still be able to go to school). capitalism profits off our insecurities (does it sound familiar now?) they profit from exploitation and objectification of women. Thanks to capitalism women are expected to be perfect at all times, women are objects. I wont even go in depth on imperialism and the exploiting of non-western countries to no end ROBBING people of the life theyve known. Fucking read about slavery, imperialism, EUGENICS, colonialism, laissez faire capitalism, the FBI (you shouldread “the FBI’S greatest hits”), the fucking effect of capitalism on india and other beautiful countries that are being destroyed right fucking now. The fact that USA has conciously killed off democratically elected communist leaders and replaced them with dictators to completely destroy the people and start wars. The fucking wars going on right now caused by americas fucking greed for oil? people are being killed their houses are being bombed right now for profit of western capitalists.
And if your source is soviet parents, arent you seeing how our forest are being cut up fully right now? at this moment? capitalists are destroying hundreds years old forests for profit. Havent you noticed how western cointties as the netherlands have no square inch of untouched forest left? im Not even gonna talk about how capitalists dont care about destroying out ozone layer to the point where its irreversable now. They have been warned theyknow what theyve caused and they CONCIOUSLY are destroying the planed for their own profit.

REQUESTED: BTS reaction to you being passionate about Travel and Leaning Cultures

Namjoon:

Originally posted by fyeahbangtaned

You had a passion for learning, it was one of things Namjoon loved about you. If anything had struck your interest you looked for a book and began reading. he admired you for it because he to liked to learn so whenever he got the chance he sat down to read with you. Namjoon saw you reading on the couch snuggled into a blanket late at night. “Babe what are you doing?” Walking up he saw you reading a language culture book. “Did you know that the Bertrand Bookstore is the oldest in the world? We should go check it out when we are in Portugal.” You said looking up at him. He only smiled and nodded. Sitting down he pulled you into him, wrapped his arms around you, and began reading the book with you. 

“What else does it say?”

Hoseok:

Originally posted by jjang-pandaa

Hoseok was surprised at first when you had first started dating and helped a foreigner visiting with directions because they didn’t speak well English or Korean. He admired how well you were able to pick up a new language and learn small phrases. Coming home one night from practice he saw you doing language courses on your laptop. “What did you learn today (Y/N)?” he asked. “I learned the basic greetings in French.” You smiled. “I learned something for you in French.” He told you. He pulled you into a close hug and said

“Je t’aime”

Jin: 

Originally posted by jjilljj

Jin would see your passion as very cute, I feel he would be one to admire you from afar. he watch you study late in the night trying to get down a language and giggle at how you get frustrated when you have trouble pronouncing something. You knew he supports you because every once in awhile you find the new book you have been looking at to read just laying around the house. “Did you get me this book?”

“I have no idea what you are talking about?”

Yoongi:

Originally posted by seokjins-wings

When traveling it wasn’t surprising to Yoongi when you knew the basics of that language. He always saw you reading books and doing online course to become familiar with the language and culture of the country you both were traveling to. One thing he knew for sure was he would never get tired of you rolling your “R”s it was something that was just captivating to him and whenever you did it he coulnd help, but smile.

“How did you say it again? Rosa?”

Jimin:

Originally posted by jikookshandshake

Jimin I feel would be in love with the idea of your love to travel and languages. He would always ask if you had learned something new and when you traveled you were almost like his own personal travel guide because you had studied so much about it. When you spoke another language is what he loved most. The way you spoke just drew him in mesmerized. He couldn’t help, but ask you speak more.

“Can you tell me you love me again?” 

Taehyung:

Originally posted by bangtanroyalty

Taehyung would honestly not notice in it at first. When you were out traveling in foreign country he saw how well you spoke with the locals in the markets. He stood back and watched you, he couldn’t help but smile at how happy and confident you spoke speaking a language that you had just picked up not to long ago. He would stare at you in awe and kinda be somewhat jealous of your intelligence.

“Hey babe, you should teach me how you learn languages so well.”

Jungkook:

Originally posted by nnochu

I feel Jungkook would be one to not really pay attention to learning these languages. When approached by two foreign fans he would be very nervous speaking to them. When you broke out speaking their native language Jungkook was more than shocked. You were able to translate for him and the fans and send them off. He than looked at you confused, you only laughed at him.

“You never seize to amaze me.”

Authors Note: EHHHH sorry.. Drabble game is open you can find it HERE. Also I will be away for a while, I am traveling out of the country so I wont be able to update Truth and Number 81 on time. Admin Byeol will help me out to post it while I am away. Thanks for reading! - Admin Wei Wei

anonymous asked:

What is sharia law? I'm Muslim and non-Muslims always throw this in my face but I really don't understand it and it makes me feel awkward like I don't really know anything about my religion. What do I say when they ask me about the prophets marriage with a six year old?

If you don’t know anything about your religion, you should try your best to learn, as it is fardh for every muslim to seek knowledge…

Now..

Shariah is basically every law/ruling that deals with Islam, from public matters like crime, politics, finance, morals to more personal matters like marriage, prayer, hygiene, modesty. 

Non-muslims like to throw it in peoples faces, but they don’t even understand Shariah properly. Even I dont, and I’m a muslim. To understand it, we must study it… to be able to say “this is not right according to Shariah” is something that must be studied, just like how you study to be a doctor or a lawyer.

You wont go inside an operation theatre and tell a surgeon how to conduct brain surgery, just because you read an article on google about how the brain works. Its complex, and rulings (Fatwas) are given by scholars.

Unfortunately many non-muslims get the idea of what Shariah is by what they see in the media and bogus websites set-up by wannabe muslims that post Qur’an ayahs completely out of context.

Thats why we should refer to scholars when searching for rulings.

Unlike books of law which have case studies and precedence to refer to, Shariah doesn’t have a proper book, as it is derived from Qur’an and Sunnah. So in essence, to understand Shariah first, one has to study the Qur’an and Hadith.

As for the marriage of Prophet ﷺ to A’isha رضي الله عنها, her age of marriage has only recently become something for non-Muslims to slander him ﷺ with. These people that attack his ﷺ marriage, do so because they want to destroy his character. They can’t find anything to say about Islam so they turn on him. This is nothing new, it is a tactic that these folk use to defame peoples character, for the purpose of winning arguments. We’ve seen this in recent times, they did the same with Malcolm X, they even did the same with Mike Brown and Eric Garner, they’ve done it to their own celebrities. You’ll see it alot, when someone is in the media that has accomplished good, there’s always a dog of a journalist trying to dig out dirt to defame him/her and tarnish their character.

During the time of Prophet ﷺ, he had much more fierce enemies, enemies that wanted to kill him, enemies that would abuse him, left, right and centre… Yet not one of them said anything about His ﷺ marriage to A’isha رضي الله عنها. For over 1400 years haters of Islam have slandered our beloved Prophet ﷺ, yet it is only recently that its become an issue. 

It’s also interesting to know that marriage laws in western countries were MUCH lower only a couple of hundred years ago, than they are now. We could go much deeper and write paragraphs discussing her age, and many have but those people that want to hate, wont change their views about islam. Their views aren’t driven by fact and context, but hatred. 

Regardless of her age, they make it look like A’isha رضي الله عنها was weak because of her marriage, they make it look like she was a victim, when in fact she رضي الله عنها was a scholar of Islam within her own right. She was the first female scholar of Islam, The Sahabah رضي الله عنهم went to her when they wanted advice on Islam after Prophet ﷺ had passed, and she alone narrated over 2200 hadith, respectively. She was a leader of Islam, she is the mother of the Believers.

May Allah continue to elevate the ranks of our Beloved Prophet ﷺ, The Mother of the Believers رضي الله عنها and all the other Sahabah رضي الله عنهم who get slandered by the haters. Ameen

Dont ever look up reviews for the company you work for.

So i work for a mail order pharmacy and last night i got damn curious. I googled the company i worked for. For laughs i said. People are always saying how horrible the reviews are gor us and they didnt lie. But the thing is while reading the little sob stories and complaints i noticed how privelged these people were. They were complaining about stuff we couldnt even help with. Things that were out of our hands. But like most privelged first world people they expect us to be able to do everything to make them happy even illegal shit. People don’t understand next time you are mad because Walmart wont do something a small business would its because big business cant do it most of the time legally. Like Medicare requires us to treat everyone equal. The FDA requires certain legal documents to be regarded as such. Most of my job is listening to people complain about how unfair things are. I put them on mute and say oh well its unfair that i dont have a unicorn.

Preference 32: What He Does When You Try to Study

Requested by @duskypaintedveins. Hope you like it!!

Harry:

Harry love how open you are and when he gets tired of studying, he starts a deep conversation. You never know how it starts really but something strange always comes up, like your ability to rap (which you had to prove, of course.)

Ron:

Ron hates school work with a passion. He sits next to you and whines about how bored he is until you finally give up any attempt at work and do something else to shut him up. 

Fred:

Fred’s never been a studier. And when you try he attempts to convince you to do other things, kissing, pranks, anything really. And when you don’t go right away he picks you up and takes you with him.

George:

George, much like his twin, is not a fan of studying. He instead distracts you with very random, yet extremely fun games. Like (stupidly competitive) water fights, McGonagall did not care for the water wrinkled paper you turned in… 

Neville:

Neville doesn’t mind studying with you, too bad he always finishes way before you and distracts you by making funny faces. You never complain, because a case of the giggles is a wonderful study break.

Cedric:

Cedric makes an attempt to study, but then he looks at you and it’s all over. He gets distracted by just the look of you. When you look up your heart skips a beat because of the look in his eyes.

Oliver:

Oliver is the worst studier. He tries not to distract you, but he genuinely doesn’t get how to study anything but quidditch plays. You try to teach him to study, but somehow it never goes as planned.

Draco: 

Draco actually studies with you. But after awhile he decides that he really needs to hold your hand or he wont be able to read another word. Somehow he managed to read your mind, as you had been thinking the same thing.

my ap government teacher gave us some study tips so i thought id share them with you guys

Make clear accurate notes

  • Write in clear and legible notes
  • Keep your notes accurate so you can review them later
  • Effective notes enable you to concentrate on special topics or details that are most relevant

Come to class prepared

  • Your notes will be better if you come to class with all your materials such as pens pencils and notebooks, or a laptop/tablet if that’s where you prefer to take notes than if you have to ask others for these materials and scribble down notes to copy later

Reviewing previous lectures

  • Review what you learned in class the day before, before class starts 
  • This will give you better context for learning new topics and you can ask questions about things you were confused on before

Compare your notes

  • Make sure are as accurate and detailed as possible by comparing them with other students
  • This way you can add to your notes things you may have missed or condense your notes if you have written too many irrelevant

Minimize distractions

My comic thumbnailing process for anon!

I start out with a script or just a really really loose bullet point list of what i want to happen (quickly jot them down before they get lost! Mine only makes sense to me so you probs wont be able to read it well. Sorry bout that!) Then i thumbnail the entirety of my comic. As you can see, they’re literally just stick figures. It’s important to keep them this way so that you wont get sucked in on making it ‘pretty.’ This is the time to feel out the flow and if the whole story connects. Also time to experiment with composition and layout!

Then I blow each page up and clean it up a tiny bit and put dialogue clearer just so that when i clean up I won’t be confused. Then, just inking from then on! Time to make it ‘pretty.’ And if you look at it, i still change a lot of things around even in the final stages. So always keep thinking about how you can best convey a scene!

As for books on storyboarding or storytelling in general, these 2 are great books!! I have a huge list of them too if you need more~

Edit: OH and of course Scott Mcloud’s stuff! Super easy and fun to read on top of being extremely informative!!

NOW THAT YOU’RE EDUCATED : Let’s get down to business :

You basically ask for sexual content from a CHILDHOOD AU. Even as a joke this is unnaceptable.

I have a name for what this is called : this is pedophilia. I will NEVER participate in this. I will never tolerate this.

Your IP is blocked, you wont be able to interact with me anymore.

I sincerely wish you will never be let around real children in all your life. You disgust me. Bye. Au revoir. Seeyanara. Fuck off mate.

I’ll make this CRYSTAL FUCKING CLEAR for all of you in the back : don’t be this guy. This not and will never be a blog with sexual topics. If that’s what you’re looking for block me. I don’t want to be aware that you exist and you don’t deserve to read my wholesome posts.


Phew. Now that we kicked this sick demon out let’s go back to the festivities ! i dont want you to ruin the party, you’re not worthy of it :) let’s pretend this never happened okay ?

Do you have a list of books that you think every math educator should read and understand to be able to teach effectively? I really hate that we are pretty much limited to standard->lesson->test->repeat to end of year exam, but that's not something I'm in a position to change. I want my students to have a strong foundation so that they aren't totally screwed when it comes to getting through mandatory credits somewhere else in life. (HS Math)

Like I said, I think the art of problem solving does the best job for math through high school. They’re so fucking good I stg you wont regret it, they’re literally my favorite books… they’re so fucking solid I have NEVER seen books do this well with basic mathematical material … ever.

anonymous asked:

I'm not trying to be rude or start an argument, I'm just confused and would like clarification. People on the PU page are saying that spirit companionship shops (especially one in particular) are a scam. I saw that the one that is so controversial right now is on your recommended shops list, so I thought you might have some clarification about it. Have you had any bad experiences with any shops? And how would someone who is a beginner to spirit companionship know if the vessel they got is empty?

The shops on my recommended shops list are there for a reason - I have worked with them all in the past and they are legit. I stand behind all of them for good reason. Nothing good ever comes out of PU anyway… I stay far the fuck away from that blog for a reason. :\ All  this drama in the community right now is stemming from 2-3 people, so it really wouldn’t surprise me if its those same 2-3 people on PU right now….

I have had bad experiences with certain shops, but those shops obviously wouldn’t make it to my recommended sellers list.

My guess behind people thinking they got a vessel that was empty is that they are just having trouble feeling the spirit or that they feel like the spirit didn’t make a big enough BANG IM HERE. Or other people are going in, trying to “read” someone else’s vessel to see the spirit, and saying that the vessel is empty. Now if you are having someone else trying to read the vessel, and they are saying its empty, thats because conjurer’s protect the bindings so nobody else can read them. Its like a misdirect, in a way. Now if that person who is trying to read the vessel actually tries to do anything to the binding (with or without your knowledge, mind you), the spirit will break the binding and return to the conjurer, leaving you with an empty vessel. They may even break the binding when the outside person tries to read the vessel.

As for the person not being able to feel the spirit - its one of those things that take time. SOMETIMES people will feel them right off, but sometimes they wont. It really depends on the person and how sensitive to energies they are. Its something that can be developed and worked with in time. But spirit work is not an instant, overnight thing. People expect interactions right away like the ones that I get with my companions, and that just isn’t going to happen. I have been doing this for a long time. I am very in-tuned with their spiritual energies and have worked with my own abilities for a LONG TIME. I have been communicating with spirits since I was 10. I am almost 30 now. Thats 19 years. I have had 19 years to build up my abilities to the point where they are now. Obviously you can do it faster then that its not going to take 19 years, but its not going to happen overnight. Work to build your abilities up, and you will feel them, they are there as long as you get them from a reputable shop. I put that list together for a reason… because they are all reputable shops that I have personally worked with in the past or currently. Trust me, they have made that list for a reason.

After receiving my IB scores on the 6th of July, I had multiple people messaging me, and asking for tips on how to do/score well on the international baccalaureate diploma program. Disclaimer: all of these tips worked well for me, to achieve the score that I wanted. Everyone studies and learns differently, hence all of these tips may not be applicable to you.  

1. Pace Yourself

The IB has many ‘pressure points’ throughout the year, where things get exceptionally difficult: multiple deadlines all at once, extended essay data analysis taking up all of your time, IAs, IOPs, IOCs - the list could go on. Our fight or flight syndrome kicks in, you begin to sprint through all of these obstacles and your brain starts working in overdrive. When you’ve passed these hurdles, your mind comes to a hard stop and burns out all together in exhaustion. This is not what you want. Organise your larger tasks into more manageable chunks and take each day at a time. Do not allow yourself to get overwhelmed. 

2. Internalise The Syllabus Statements / Rubrics 

The syllabus statements are your guidelines to success. Keep a copy at your side while you are studying for tests, and make sure to reference them regularly. This ensures that you are studying things that are relevant and will actually come up in assessments. You also save time by ‘cutting out the crap,’ i.e. any extra information you dont really need to learn.

3. Active Learning > Passive Learning

I have always said that textbooks are my greatest tool, however, simply reading the material wont get you far - none of the information will stick in your mind, for you to be able to recall, during the exam. You need to actively learn the information set out in front of you. A few of my favourite methods are: memorising summary notes taken from the textbook by reading aloud, making flashcards and testing myself, re-writing my notes multiple times on a whiteboard, teaching my friends and working through past paper questions.

4. Don’t Exhaust Your Mind

If you can study for 8 hours straight, that’s awesome. If you can’t, don’t feel alone. The average amount of time a person can sit down and study for is 1-2 hours, after that our brain begins to get exhausted. Don’t push yourself if you start to feel tired, take a 20 minute break and walk around or take a short nap. Studying in multiple short bursts has proved to be more successful than studying in a single continuous study-session anyway.

5. Comparison Is The Thief Of Joy 

Remember, it is your own personal achievements you want to be focused on. Not that of anyone else’s. Comparing your score to that of your best friends’ is not going to be helpful in anyway, in fact it may actually be demotivating, and that is the last thing that you want. Also, theres this whole stigma in the IB that certain subjects are harder than others, that is absolute bullshit. Difficulty is completely subjective - what may be very hard for others, may be extremely easy for you. Don’t think that a 7 in an ‘easy subject’ is worth less than a 7 in a ‘hard subject.’ A 7 is a 7. Be proud of yourself.

6. Love What You Do

Treat the IB like a job and learn to love it. Once you embark on this two year journey, there really is no getting off. You may as well enjoy the process. 

7. Don’t Lose Momentum

I’m going to go back and reference point 1 again, if you burn you, you lose momentum - in regards to your stamina/motivation to study. This is not ideal. You want to continue with the same level of momentum throughout the IB, and slowly increase the pace as you near exams, at which point you should peak. I was told this by one of my teachers, and it is probably the greatest piece of advice, that I have ever received. 

8. Don’t neglect TOK And Your EE

Treat both of these as separate subjects all together, and devote as much time to them, as you would to any other subject. Getting those 3 points can determine whether you get your diploma, and it just feels a lot more satisfying to see ‘3/3′ on the screen. I spent 3 hours in my chem lab, every day after school, for around 5 months, experimenting and writing up my EE. I read journal articles, talked to professionals in the area of chemistry I was writing about and tried my hardest to go above and beyond in order to obtain the information I needed. And boy, did seeing an ‘A’ on the screen, feel good. 

9. Have A Clear Goal In Sight

You’re going to ask yourself why the hell you bother with CAS, when you aren’t creative, nor do you like sport (same dude.) You’re going to question why you study six subjects, that covers almost every area of academia, when you’re only interested in the arts. You’re going to stop yourself in the middle of a difficult task, and questions why the fuck you are persevering. You need answers. I found that constantly reminding myself of my future and what I wanted to study and university, really helped me shrug off these questions, and just continue on with what I was doing.

10. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” 

I’m going to end with this quote. I used it as a mantra when I was feeling particularly tired and demotivated, and it really helped. I hope it helps you too.
