june 9, 2017 - what’s the biggest thing you learned last semester?

#ssn june challenge: week 1, day 4

i think the biggest thing that i learned this past semester was learning how to really do research and how to work with unfamiliar people. in my world music class, we were assigned a semester-long research project (you can read a little more about it here, and special thanks to my good friend @jinstudies for being part of it!), working together with randomly selected people in the class. sifting through a myriad of readings, asking the right questions, and formulating a truly solid thesis was difficult and stressful. i was fortunate enough that my teammates and i got along very well and we were successful in the end (we got an A on our final paper!), but i know that in the real-world workplace, you don’t always get to choose who you want to work with, and you won’t always get to be that lucky. you encounter all kinds of obstacles, and you may disagree on things every now and then, but you learn to deal with what you’ve got, compromise, and cooperate with others while kindly respecting one another. it may even seem daunting at first, but you will soon see yourself bloom and grow!

hey I know you probably don't wanna talk about it...but I really only watched tvd for steroline-they're my fav brotp going otp, and yet... I read your post the other day in which you said something about Stefan suffering from PTSD and thus kinda suicidal. It makes me think of couples who struggle with mental illness, and then I rmb Virginia Woolf and her suicide note to her husband. Seeing how both Caroline and Woolf's husband must have brought so much happiness to their partners, it's so sad.

Hey there! I’ve never read Virginia Woolf, but I can imagine that Caroline was  devastated to learn that Stefan chose to die on their wedding day.  Especially knowing that Stefan struggled with his dark side. Stefan always had a low sense of self-worth, and he had a death wish since ssn 1. I’m sure that Stefan thought that he was doing everyone a a favor when he died - saving the day - making their lives better - unburdening them with his drama. But Stefan never understood that he was respected and loved because his presence brought light to other people’s lives. 

Stefan: Why do you have a thing for me?

Caroline: I don’t.

Stefan: Ok. Um. Why did you have a thing for me?

Caroline: We said that we would never talk about this again, so just -

Stefan: Look Caroline, please just talk to me. Tell me how, tell me why. Please just make me understand how it is that I missed it. 

Caroline: What kind of question is that? Why did I have a thing for you? I don’t know, Stefan. Maybe it’s because I thought you were worth having a thing for. Because when I woke up as a vampire you told me that I would get through it and I did. Because when I watched Elena move on with your brother I couldn’t imagine why she would let anyone like you go. Because you were practically my best friend. Because I trusted you. 

And of course that moment before they kiss: “Because when you told me you hated me, that was pretty much the worst thing I had heard in a long time.”

Stefan never got it. 

And Poor Caroline. She was widowed on her wedding day.

Yeah, but you're talking 6,000 fans which included their plus 1 at SSN vs 85,000 at F1. Taylor meets at least 10,000 fans per tour. I only know a few who've met her twice. One met her after winning a radio contest for the SN tour and again 4 years later through Taylor during "1989" what are we talking here? 1% Met her twice out of 80k-100k fans via contests/her team choosing them for all 4 tours.

I didnt say those fans from SSN got to meet Taylor multiple times. I said that a majority of those fans that got invited to SSN have been to other exclusive events before. 1) because TN had their info beforehand and 2) because  TN knew they could come at the drop of the hat. 

Also I think TN picked repeat fans because they were guarenteed to come and a majority of the fans did not have the cash prepared to fly or drive to Houston during the Super Bowl.
Another theory for SNK (!!: spoilers for ssn. 1)

OKOKOK, so you know how whenever one of the titan-human characters transform, they always have the same hair/eyes? But each titan that’s actually a human is usually intelligent (apart from Eren, of course). So the Colossal Titan has to be a human in a titan’s body, but everyone’s already figured that much out. What I haven’t seen anyone figure out is WHO is the Colossal Titan?

Well, if each titan-human has the same hair when they transform, so maybe the Colossal Titan is Commander/General Pyxis. I mean, he’s the only bald character, right? And yeah, I’ve heard theories that Berdtolt is the Colossal Titan, because he’s almost 2m tall, but…Berdtolt has hair.

So my theory is that the Colossal Titan is either Pyxis or someone we don’t know at all.

Kuroshitsuji Cookbook:

  • Title: Meringue Bones
  • Episode/Chapter: Multiple (e.g. ep 1, ssn 3)

Information:

  • Yield: n/a
  • There are multiple kuro entries for each recipe in the anime/manga. Check out my ‘kuroshitsuji cookbook’ tag for more.
  • Image and recipe source are the same.

Recipe:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 egg whites (around 70g or 2.47 ozs or so)
  • ½ cup caster or superfine sugar
  • A pinch of cream of tartar

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 100C/212F and line two large baking trays with parchment. Make sure that your bowl and beaters are completely clean. Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl and whisk for a few minutes until soft peaks form. Gradually add in the sugar until you get stiff, glossy peaks. You should be able to turn the bowl upside down without the meringue moving at all.
  • Fill a piping bag with the meringue mixture and snip off the end to give you a 1/2cm or ¼ inch opening. Pipe bone shapes. I pipe two centre lines joined together and then two “ears” at the ends. You can also do rib cages and skulls. Bake in the oven for 1 hour until they have dried out completely.
