serialreblogger: jaubaius: A bird explaining to a hedgehog crossing so it doesn’t die. !!! ok but that’s legitimately what it’s doing!! That’s a corvid right there (looks like a hooded crow, to be precise), which means it’s intelligent enough to recognize, a) cars are dangerous and streets should be treated with a certain degree of caution, b) this car’s slowing down for them–cars do that sometimes–which means they’re not in imminent danger, so it doesn’t have to fly away just yet, c) that hedgehog’s still gonna get killed if it doesn’t MOVE, FAST (cars can change speed very quickly and the hedgehog’s still in the way), and almost certainly also d) if the bird does nothing it gets a free lunch. Y’all, Y’ALL. This bird is consciously deciding to put itself in danger in order to save the life of a very stupid creature. A creature which, if the bird did nothing, could be free food.  i can’t - look if you follow me you know I have a thing for corvids, but this is - like!!! People are always saying “ah yes they have sub-human intelligence and don’t consider anything that isn’t immediately necessary for their own survival/pleasure,” but! Whether or not it can do philosophy, this crow is clearly demonstrating compassion. Even if it’s just the kind of compassion a toddler shows to a snail, a social creature that instinctively recognizes the potential for emotion in other beings, that’s still huge and cool and important and corvids!!! are! neat!!!  : serialreblogger: jaubaius: A bird explaining to a hedgehog crossing so it doesn’t die. !!! ok but that’s legitimately what it’s doing!!

apricot-studies: smartstudy: Hey guys. I’m glad to be finally posting my “mental breakdown survival guide”. As you know I struggle a lot with mental health, and so I have been through a lot of breakdowns. So many that I actually dropped out of university after 3 weeks in 2016 and had to take the whole year off. Because of this, I’ve made it my mission to help others with mental health issues as much as I can, so you don’t have to go through what I’ve been through. Anyway, here is my guide. I tried to keep it general, and actually useful. If you have any questions or additions please feel free to add them. And as ever, if you want to talk to me about studying with mental illness or want to see a post on a specific topic, please feel free to message me. thank you so much for this : Saving Your Grades From A Mental Health Crisis What To Do Before, During, And After by SmartStudy.tumblr.com IF YOUR GRADES ARE IN IMMEDIATE DANGER CONTACT YOUR TEACHERS This should be the first thing you do when you realise you're in crisis. Email them, and explain your situation in short, professional terms. You do not have to include details about your condition. "I have a mental health condition" should suffice as to the nature of the issue. Tell them that you are going to arrange to see a medical professional as soon as possible, and ask what process you should go through to defer/get an extension on assessment, and if they can help you in any way. Other people you may have to contact or CC in the email (depending on your school): University High School Head of House Class Coordinator Faculty/School Admin Disability Advisor Grade Coordinator Head of Department Academic Admin Counsellor School Counsellor Student Advocate BOOK A DOCTOR/THERAPIST APPOINTMENT ASAP This will be the person who can vouch for you the most. It's best if you have seen them before and they know you. If you can't get an appointment within a few days, call them and email them (if you haven't seen them before this will not work). Make sure to check out what counselling your university or school offers. During this appointment, the priority is to make a plan to get you back on your feet. This effort will not be useful if you stay a mess. Once you've figured that out, get two things from this person. One is a medical certificate/letter stating that you have, in fact, been going through this crisis. Second is a letter that describes the nature of the crisis, what treatment you're going through, and which people to contact (psychiatrists, etc.) who can vouch for this. Note: The reason I say to get two letters is because there is still a huge stigma around mental illness, and you don't want to reveal that you've got a disorder that's highly stigmatised, only to have it come back and bite you in the ass later. Don't provide details unless it's necessary or asked for. A STUDENT KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AS Most schools and institutions will have a list of a student's rights and responsibilities online. Look them up. Know what your rights are as a student. Also look to see if there are state/national laws protecting you, or if your school is a part of a network of schools that has its own code. Some people working in schools still think mental health issues are trivial, and you never know when they're going to ignore a rule to suit themselves. Make sure you can pick on this if it happens to you. Pretty much all schools will have protection in place for students with mental illnesses and disabilities, so even if you a miss a deadline for a form or make another mistake, they should take your exceptional circumstances into account. This is where a student or disability advisor from school can help you. ottom IF YOU HAVEN'T REACHED CRISIS YET TALK TO A DOCTOR/THERAPIST/COUNSELLOR/TRUSTED ADULT If you're going through a hard time, talk to someone who can help you. Any trusted adult or professional can help you get back on your feet before it's too late, or refer you to someone who can. If it's a new issue, you'll have to see someone like a GP who can refer you to a therapist or mental health service. Talk to them about what's been happening, and say that you need help. Sometimes, even talking about the problem can help you feel better. In these situations, they can also help you figure out what you can do at school to catch up/get special help. FIGURE OUT HOW TO STUDY WHILE IN A BAD STATE Even if you're getting help, it might be some time before you're fully back on track. In these instances, try to make the best of a bad situation. Can't leave the house? Access lecture recordings and eBooks. Ask your friends to send you their notes, or ask the teacher if you can submit your homework via email, or through a friend. Have trouble concentrating? Figure out how long you can study without needing a break, and make a schedule around that. Always make sure to ask your teachers if they can help you with this. Whether it be slightly changing the requirements or conditions of a piece of assessment, or simply their understanding that you may not be able to attend perfectly, it can make a big difference with your overall marks. If they don't know you're struggling, they can't help! DON'T PUSH YOURSELF OR OVERTHINK When you realise there's an issue, it's easy to fall into panic or try to power through. Don't do this. It'll just make you more stressed and aggravate the existing problems, which will make things much worse in the long run. Though it's hard to believe sometimes, your health and mental health are more important than your grades. You can't ignore your mind when it's screaming at you that something is wrong. Listen to it, and be easy on yourself. The best way to get back to your full potential to ask for help and give yourself what you need. Take a break when you need one and practise self-care. It's more important than you might things. RECOVERING FROM A BREAKDOWN ACCEPT THAT YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH SOMETHING MAJOR Once the worst has passed, some people try to brush it off and pretend it never happened. They can feel ashamed or embarrassed about what they went through. However, there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about, especially if you had a pre-existing mental health condition. Every life has ups and downs and just because yours were a bit more serious than some people's, it doesn't mean that you're weak somehow. The best thing you can do for yourself is to recognise what happened, and work to prevent it from happening again by setting up crisis plans and support networks. GET TUTORING TO CATCH UP If you've fallen behind, don't worry. There are plenty of ways to catch yourself up and get back on track. The best way is to hire a tutor. They can guide you through the work, help you understand difficult concepts, and identify the places you need more help. Yes, tutors can be expensive, but there's a way to get around this. See if there is anyone who took your class the year before who might be willing to tutor you for an hour each week for a discounted prince. Similarly, see if there are any students who can help you in exchange for something like instrument lessons. And if any of your friends are academically gifted, I'm sure they'd be able to help. If all else fails, go to office hours and any free tutoring sessions your school or university offers. Do some research, ask around, see what's there. PACE YOURSELF AND DON'T RUSH IN After a breakdown or crisis, you may be tempted to throw yourself back into your work to catch up. Don't! You'll become overwhelmed and end up back at square one. Remember, you've just been through a very difficult situation and you're not going to get better overnight. Ease yourself in. I definitely recommend starting with a reduced or part-time study load if possible. Remember that you may not be back at your full capacity just yet, and difficulties concentrating and being motivated could make things hard. By starting off slowly, you're able to get used to studying again without too much pressure. DEVELOP A ROUTINE Yes, this advice is in every piece of study advice ever, but you shouldn't develop just any routine. Develop one that allows you plenty of breaks and takes into consider any issues you may have with fatigue or focusing. If your breakdown was caused by overwork, make sure this one is easier on you. Things to include you could include in a healthy routine (but don't micromanage!): "I feel crap" time* Breaks and meals Plenty of sleep and rest "You" time (treat yo self) Time to plan for the next week Exercise (have you tried yoga? Kidding) Meditation/mindfulness Friend/family social time * Remember that the thoughts and feelings caused by mental illness are not shameful, and ignoring and forcing them down will only make them worse. If you need to lie in bed feeling miserable, do it. THINGS TO REMEMBER DON'T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS It can be easy to look at other people and see your own flaws, but it's important to try not to. Every person has different experiences and struggles, so it's not fair to yourself to look at someone without yours and think you're behind in some way. Taking longer to complete your studies isn't shameful. Making mistakes isn't shameful. Needing breaks isn't shameful. You'll get where you need to be in the end. Have patience. GRADES DON'T DEFINE YOU I spent so much of my life thinking my only worth came from my academic success. And guess what? This just led to more anxiety and depression. It's important to realise that things like grades, class rankings, GPAS, and "intelligence" aren't that important. Who you are and what you do is far more important than these arbitrary labels. THERE IS A STIGMA, SO BE PREPARED It's an unfortunate reality, but there is still a stigma against mental health issues and there is a chance it might affect your experiences while dealing with administrative staff and teachers. There have been stories about people telling their people supposed to be guiding them that they have mental health issues, and being dismissed because "it's a girl issue" or "it's all in their head". Be prepared in case this happens to you. Remind people that it's a medical condition and that you can get proof from medical professionals if need be. Plus, there is probably something in your school's policies or even the law that protects you when you have a mental illness. Remember that just because people are ignorant, that doesn't mean your issue is not 100% real and important. Don't let these people make you feel worse. YOU CAN DO THIS In our darkest moments, it can be hard to believe that we're capable of immense strength, but I promise you we are. Whatever obstacle is in your path right now - even if it's your brain chemistry - you are going to get through this. You've made it through every worst day you've had so far. You've made it through the dark and scary moments, and you've come out the other end stronger and wiser. Remember that you are strong, and even when you don't feel like it, there is always support available to help you realise that strength again. tmblimteom apricot-studies: smartstudy: Hey guys.

: thathighclassbitch The lifespan ofa corgi So I love corgis! And I think many other people also love corgis, so here's a small life span of your average corgi!!! Ofcourse, every little corgi puppy starts off small. They cant walk or see, but they're born with a fully functional sense of smell! All healthy puppies grow quickly after birth. A puppy's coat color may change as the puppy grows older Puppies develop very quickly during their first three months, particularly after their eyes and ears open and they are no longer completely dependent on their mother!! Their coordination and strength improve, they spar with their littermates, and begin to explore the world outside the nest!! They grow up fast, and soon enough, you'll have a big, grown corgi. However, contrary to popular belief, they aren't done growing just yet. Every corgi has the ability to keep growing, as long as you raise them right. My personal recommendation is to feed them past midnight. After a while, they most likely won't fit in your home anymore. You'll have to buy some land to house your corgi, as they can be a little clumsy in this size. They'll still be equally as loveable, and make for great transportation! Their final stage, they'll be about the size of your average skyscraper. Make sure to keep them out of the city! They aren't malicious, but they're very playful even in this stage! I repeat: Do not keep them in a city/populated area thathighclassbitch Your post has been flagged and is now hidden Why the fuck tumblr Source: thathighclassbi... 32,136 notes

nothingbutamother: dynastylnoire: ladycedar: There are a number of students in my GCSE class that have behavioural issues and if they feel uncomfortable they can do anything from storm out of the classroom to throwing chairs and punching their tables. They’re great kids, they just dont always see the light at the end of the tunnel and when they are in stressful situations they dont know what to do other than lash out sometimes. They are 10 months away from their final exams and the pressure is being mounted on them in every aspect of their school lives. Last week one of the students saw me making little origami stars. Its something I do when I’m feeling anxious to help me focus on something else. He asked if I could show him how to make them. He had been clenching his fists all lesson, which I’ve noticed is a tell that he is struggling to retain composure. I gave him a strip of paper and talked it through with him. Soon half of the class were asking me to show them. They all picked it up really quickly. After about five minutes and about 8 stars later, the student sat back down and was in a much calmer and motivated mood for the rest of the lesson. Our next lesson I placed a box of paper strips on my desk and when I saw anyone getting worked up about their work I silently placed a strip in front of them and let them get on with it. The lesson after I was amazed to see that students would go up to the box of their own accord, pick up a few strips and head back to their desks to continue working after calming down. Yesterday I brought a large jar into the classroom and placed my anxiety stars in there. The boys put their strsss stars in there too. When they fill the jar I’m going to bring sweets into the lesson to celebrate them working hard and working through their problems in a positive manner. I know I’m not the teacher they deserve just yet but I feel like I’ve made a big breakthrough with them. art therapy is important. You are exactly the teacher they need. It’s a brilliant idea and im so glad it works for them. : nothingbutamother: dynastylnoire: ladycedar: There are a number of students in my GCSE class that have behavioural issues and if they feel uncomfortable they can do anything from storm out of the classroom to throwing chairs and punching their tables.

Connie Nielsen as Diana's mother Hippolyta and Robin Wright as her soldier-aunt Antiope split the difference between conveying maternelism and bravura as recompense for a society that lives sexlessly without men (not an bi-genius: deliriumbubbles: inaneenglish: neroon: rowanthesloth: turakamyou: safetyhoodie: princesdianas: hot news: male reviewer of wonder woman has never heard of lesbians in his life, more at 7 “lives sexlessly without men” Weak cishet males Amazon Society: *produces a 12 volume work on the subject of pleasure* Diana: When it comes to procreation, men are essential, but for pleasure, not necessary. Male Reviewer: I guess that means they don’t know about sex! Me: Harold, they’re lesbians.

laughoutloud-club: SNES Classic Edition Announced, Brings Back The ‘90s in more ways than you can imagine: Nintendo's follow up to their incredibly popular NES Classic retro console is coming. The SNES Classic was just announced by Big N and promises to give the classic treatment to 21 of the SNES's biggest games, all in a tiny bundle that's easier to plug in and play than its namesake original. Scheduled to debut on September 29th, there's no pre-ordering to do just yet but guarentee that's very far off. Given the NES Classic's astounding popularity this past holiday season and the fact that Nintendo themselves discontinued production of the NES Classic, there's no reason to think that the SNES Classic will be any less popular or hard to get. The game's included rounds up some of the second generation Nintendo system's most beloved games. You can check out the game list right here but you can also rest assured that, if you've been itching to revisit amazing games like F-Zero, Super Mario World or Star Fox, this little gadget will scratch that itch. In case you missed it, of special note is the inclusion of Star Fox 2,a game that was developed for the SNES, completed by Nintendo, but never released. So even if you've got no interest in "old" games, the SNES Classic Edition offers something new. SUPER Famicom スーパーファミコン The Japanese version of the mini system, called the Nintendo Classic Mini Super Famicom, also comes with 21 games, but only 16 of those align with the North American/U.K, set. Although the U.K. and North American versions share the same library of games, the U.K. does get the rounded, colorful Super Famicom-styling for its Super NES, just like it did in the 90s, as opposed to the aesthetically awkward North American design. HUMAN SOCCER The Nintendo Classic Mini Super Famicom hits stores in Japan on October 5 for US$72 Clamoring for a Nintendo 64 Classic Edition is expected to start by mid-October at the latest. If you've been itching to revisit amazing games like F-Zero, Super Mario World or Star Fox, this little gadget will scratch that itch laughoutloud-club: SNES Classic Edition Announced, Brings Back The ‘90s in more ways than you can imagine

imsobadatnicknames: ftm-liamxezra: This is my dad on my 21st birthday. It has taken him 21 years to call me his son. It’s taken 21 years for him to tell me that he’s proud of me. It’s taken him 21 years to tell me that he loves me. It’s taken us 21 years to love each other. When I first came out as transgender my dad didn’t understand and so he reacted with hatred, anger and disappointment. He shamed me for my gender expression and we had to cut off communication. But after my chest surgery in December of 2016 he finally opened his eyes to how happy I finally was. He made the decision to attend rehab and therapy to better himself and focus on his own mental health issues in order to restore our relationship. Since my surgery he’s been nothing but loving and supportive. He always calls me Liam and uses the correct pronouns. He calls me his son and we’re more connected now then ever. In these photos I’m opening a birthday present from my dad. His present was a black ball cap that read “The Jet-Lag Club”. He explained that it was a bar in Japan only for international flight crews. A bar that his father had gone to and he had frequently gone to as well. He got the hat from being such a frequent customer, but it has closed since and now there is no possible was to get one of these hats. He told me it’s his most prized possession. And then he handed it to me and said… “It’s yours now. It’s tradition, from father to son.” Remember that people can grow and change. They can accept and love even after hatred emerged. Remember that people can see who you are. Don’t give up just yet, things can change and they can get better. @xxdarthvaderofmiddle-earthxx: Handle w ith care SON his mind to imsobadatnicknames: ftm-liamxezra: This is my dad on my 21st birthday.

Harry Potter: Skyrimomg-humor.tumblr.com: YEAH IF VIDEO GAME DESIGNERS COULD CREATEA HARRY POTTER GAME SIMILAR TO SKYRIM WHERE YOU PLAY AS YOUR OWN CHARACTER IN THE HARRY POTTER WORLD, THAT WOULD BE GREAT se hard and yetHetid get serted aft tunk and #HetHe be great be? Okay so my mind started rolling with this and omtg okay just hear me out So like it starts of sort of like Sims and Skyrim, okay You get your owl and you go do your shopping for stuf for Hogwarts, but you don't get to see your character just yet When you get to Hogwarts and your sorting ceremony, you get to customise how they look and what sort of traits they have After you customise all that, you get sorted via a quiz (sort of like Pottermore) and it rolls with that and you get sorted Patronus anons These decisr Patronus and Animagus will be, as well as what yor fear is for you Boggart (though this could also possibly Through the game, you get to study magic (obvious) and you have adventures and stuff where you have to make decisions. These decisions later decide what your be decided on when you're making your character idk whatever) So during the summer holidays. you have adventures in the Muggle world (depending on what your blood status is, which could be decided randomly) it you're Muggle- born. If you're Pure-Blooded, you have adventures in the wizarding world. If you're Halt-Blooded, you can do both. But here's the thing. if you spend more time in the Muggie world, you get more information on going on's in the Muggle world, and same goes for the Wizarding world if you spend more time in the Wizarding world And after a period of time, like maybe in your fourth year? you can get papers and news from whichever world you're not in most often And your knowledge of the events of the world, both Wizarding and Muggle alike can tactor into the gameplay somehow And then in your Fith and Seventh years, you have your OW L s and your NEW.T s, and these factor into what career choices you'll have later on as well. So like If you score high in Herbology and Potions you'd have career options like Healer Herbologist, and Potion Master AND THEN THE WORLD BECOMES YOURS YOU CAN CONTINUE RELATIONSHIPS YOU HAD IN HOGWARTS AFTERWARDS, OR YOU CAN MEET NEW PEOPLE OR WHATEVER AND THEN IT JUST BECOMES THIS HUGE SANDBOX OF FUN AND WONDERMENT YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE A GENIUS!! UARE A GENUStBEAUTIFUL WOULD PLAY THIS SO HARD Harry Potter: Skyrimomg-humor.tumblr.com
