Advice, Af, and Bad: hm...buns @coolthottie college really be on some other shit "..and it has to be a minimum of 20 pages." You'll be writing a paper this semester" ft @coolthottie/jadasy ruby-white-rabbit: freddieandersen: inkskinned: HOW TO WRITE 20 PAGES (from one girl w/mental illness 2 the rest of u, but please keep in mind all of this is just personal Stuff That Worked for me n u might be different): first of all, and probably most importantly, make that paper about something you actually give a shit about. if you can write an essay on how long shakespeare’s dick is when you’re talking to your friends, that’s a good topic. don’t choose something u don’t care about, you will Want To Die “okay but the only topics are ones i don’t care about” talk 2 ur teacher 99% of the time if you’re like “here’s a well-thought-out thesis can i talk about this instead” they’re like “sure lmao i just couldn’t think of other paper topics to suggest” “they said no” cool find the one u hate the least and try to tie it into something u like. for example i really hated this stupid paper i had to write about a stupid book so i ended up writing about the food inside the book and whether or not it was a historically accurate depiction of food. turns out i fucking love talking about food. i also remade some of the old recipes and brought them in as part of the presentation of my project and people went fuckken nuts bc BREAD. basically i thought about “what motivates me? uh food” and followed that. it was a 45-page book about bread and i looked like a really good student when really i just love bread (somewhere, oprah smiles over me) the 20-pagers are the ones you Actually Cannot Do the night before. i know we all got real fuckken cocky back in hs when we learned how to do 5 pages in one night w/out trying too hard but 1. as a teacher now i can tell u for sure that teachers do know you rushed it, we just Don’t Care bc We’re Not Paid Enough and 2. twenty pages is not the same thing. you need to actually take the time to do it. this is the actual version of “you’re not in hs anymore” DONT lie to yourself and think “it’s fine i’ll do it in one day” you will !! Regret it!!!!  “raquel. raquel. listen to me. do you actually believe i’m capable of time management. raquel i have depression i barely manage to exist.” same. but the truth is that when i started like?? actually following the rules of timelines and taking my time etc it actually really helps mental illness. you don’t feel pressured all the time by a deadline, so your anxiety chills a little bit. small progress being acceptable means that on depression days, you don’t have to worry you’re fucking it all up. when it’s 15 minutes every day (even if it’s only 1 word a day) it feels a lot better. ask the teacher what timeline they’d recommend. they actually Know. always ask if it’s informal or formal (if you can use “I” statements or not). informal essays can rely on personal feelings and are so much easier and trust me if you find out on the day it’s due that you could have written 12 pages about your feelings instead of 12 pages of research, you will Be Very Upset i lie to myself all the time and move the deadline up. i write it in my agenda as at least 2 days before it’s due. surprise!!! i tricked u, self!!! you can’t procrastinate!!  agendas/planners need to be what actually works for you. i liked to prioritize w/colors + keep lists. i really love crossing things off lists. it’s like… a balm. for me, i usually say i have to finish the first 2 things, start the 3rd thing, and “touch” at least half the list. if i finish the whole list i get a prize. also i get to cross off everything which is so satisfying i’m sure it’s someone’s idea of a rush. there’s so many “how to” documents on these that i won’t get into it but frankly?? if you don’t write it down you will not remember it. “yes i will” no you won’t greg. just do it. write it down. write it where u can see it. not there, greg. greg, somewhere good. my friend is smart af and uses a post-it on her laptop. that doesn’t work for me bc i can just? use my hand to cover the anxiety? so choose somewhere good greg. nervous system, skeleton, meat, skin. nervous system is the thesis. skeleton is quotes/data. meat is the analysis of that data. skin is the fancy transitions + beautification.  meat goes on both sides of bone, and skin goes all around. nervous system has to touch everything. do what your teachers have been begging u to do since 3rd grade and start w/an outline. do this while you read/research. i usually have a starter thesis like “lady macbeth is a feminist ICON” then take the quotes i think fit. but if while you’re reading u realize u wanna talk about the use of feminine language and how shakespeare parallels daintiness w/sharpness, u still have a bunch of quotes you can use or not use. this works also w/research papers. just pull what u think is something u wanna talk about. copy-paste it but leave a link to where u got it. then put a bullet point under that says roughly why u mention it if you just write the outline like you’re keeping notes to yourself you’d be amazed how quickly you write the essay bc we get stuck in academic language but it’s easier to translate “this is why bees are the #bomb” into a paragraph. i mean you just rewrite your notes to yourself in academic speech. “The above passage illustrates the growing necessity of pollinators such as bees in an agricultural environment.” keep track of your sources + label them. don’t just write “(SOURCE)” instead if you’re using multiple sources use the lazygirl way which is (SA1) or whatever shorthand u have for each source. then when you need to finish your sources you go to your little source document, find the one labelled SA1 and then “Find+replace” w/the actual source. integrate quotes so it reads w/clarity which means don’t do this but if you’re running late on it and don’t have time to look up the quote u want to fit this situation, technically you can “use any” word you want (56). so yeah “there is” a moral question about it but you “can” make up quotes (79, 90). don’t “actually” do this unless you’re seriously in a crunch. which u shouldn’t be, bc u managed ur time, right? running late part 2 (which again would never happen bc you followed my advice and made a little time table for yourself but anyway if it does somehow magically happen) i really recommend using school computers to do your work. ur surrounded by people who will hold u accountable + u will focus running late pt3 on the day of it being due, around 5 PM, be honest w/yourself and see where you are. if you’re like “it needs 2 more hours” okay. but if you’re like “this is……… not started” email the teacher. they’ll be so much more receptive the earlier you do this in the process. it looks like “i’m genuinely struggling and i hope to finish this on time but i’m worried i won’t” instead of “i started this at 11:58PM and am asking for an extension”. please also just… be honest?  “my teacher won’t accept late work!” they all say that, he probably will, particularly if you have a note from the school therapist being like “lmao she’s got so many mental illnesses idek how to help her” “no he really doesn’t, he doesn’t care” you can file for disability if you have mental illness, and, in fact, you should if it’s something that often stops you from completing work on time. i didn’t bc i found that it just let me procrastinate for a longer time, but having that on file means you can go to the dean. “no!!! raquel you’re not listening i have 2 pages and he doesn’t take late work!!!!!!!!!”  okay. yeah that’s bad. but nerves, skeleton, meat, skin. what is it that you’re struggling with? is it that your can’t find any quotes to back up your thesis? impossible, tbh, you need to be more willing to purposefully misuse quotes (don’t do that). but the better option is to just change the thesis.  “i don’t even have that!!” did you. do the reading? if you even just watched the movie, you probably have an opinion on something even if it’s “this is bad.” you can use that. use why you didn’t like it to write a hate-fueled examination on how whiny the main character is and why u think the author is trying to point out how miserable cis white boys are to deal with.  “i don’t have enough sources!!!” go to wikipedia’s page about it and look @ the sources. try to like actually read some if you have time but frankly in a hurry a student (me) might be compelled to just slap the source in there.  “how the fuck do i analyze this”. u know how ppl agonize over why an actor breathed in a scene. melt into that kind of thinking. you can literally force the words to mean whatever you want. i’ve talked about word choice so specific that i based a 12-page essay on three separate uses of the words “my dear”. i talked about the possessive “my” and how it developed for like 5 of those pages. and always repeat the thesis like a million times. after every analysis you should talk about how it links to the thesis. that is like a free 3 sentences every paragraph. “i did all that and it’s still 3 pages too short” quick ways to Beef Him Up: definitions are great in research papers + essays bc you can talk about either word choice or like the definition of every process used in getting the data. also make the conclusion hella informative (it should answer “what does this mean moving forwards” most of the time, tie it into modern life or into the past). thicken ur intro with “here’s a quote from this guy about it and what he personally felt about acid-base titrations”, use a paragraph to talk about the history of the data/book, use a paragraph to talk about the modern reception of the data/book. also look for where you can use two words instead of one even tho like grammatically don’t do that. worst comes to worst, brevity is the soul of wit. most teachers prefer concise over rambling and all over the place. if you choose to scoot under the page limit, tho, your writing etc needs to be exceptionally clean. frankly i’ve only done this once and it was terrifying make computer read it aloud 2 u before u submit. “raquel….. i can’t look at it anymore”. you’re not looking @ it, you’re discovering you wrote “breath” not “breathe” and u need to change it tutoring centers exist, i worked in one, and this is how i know they actually Help and have Good Ideas ask about extra credit and do it tbh good luck…. breathe. and remember u are astronomically more important than a grade could ever be. do you have trouble writing words on paper but you know what you want to say? because that’s my personal form of useless perfectionism. like, you can tell your friend all about what you’re planning on writing, and talk about it for like 20 minutes straight? make notes for imaginary slides for an imaginary presentation on the topic oops you have an outline now! your imaginary slides? paragraphs (or if ur paper is long af, each imaginary bullet point is a paragraph and each imaginary slide is a couple pages) credit for this tip goes to my therapist. thanks amy. u solved paper writing for me and at least seven of my friends Partial credit is better than no credit at all. Only have 5 pages the day it’s due? TURN IT IN. It’s better than a zero if the teacher won’t work with you on an extension or late work

Alive, Comfortable, and Friends: GAYmer trans @trans_gaymes Following I've dated two cis gay guys, both of whom weren't into vaginas. One just told me he wasn't comfortable with them in a sexual way, I told him that's fine and it was never a problem in our relationship. The other one, however... 10:20 PM-11 Dec 2018 16 Retweets 78 Likes GAYmer trans@trans_gaymes 17h The other guy purposefully used this against me. He asked me out KNOWING that I'm trans, then a week into our relationship, said he could never be happy with a "biological female", and that we HAD to have an open relationship, which I wasn't comfortable with. GAYmer trans@trans_gaymes 17h I told him I wasn't comfortable with an open relationship, but he insisted he couldn't date me and be happy otherwise, so I gave in and agreed. At the time, I didn't see how fucked up this actually was. I didn't realize until after I broke up with him. GAYmer trans @trans_gaymes 17h After I broke up with him, he sent death threats against me to my friends. When reported these threats, he insisted that I was trying to force him to be sexually attracted to me. Which is the exact opposite of what happened GAYmer trans@trans_gaymes 17h I would have had no problem with him not being into me that way. But instead, he made his own manipulation against me look like I was the one manipulating him. And I was blamed for him threatening my life, and he faced no consequences for that. GAYmer trans@trans_gaymes 17h So that's how I know that the "trans people are trying to force people to have sex with them" claims are wrong. Because l've personally lived through being demonized by them. And I'm lucky to have made it out alive, because he really would have killed me if he had the chance.

Protest the working conditions, not what the boss makes. Getting paid more does nothing for the working conditions where it’s so stressful someone attempts suicide. Or do you really think that kind of work suddenly gets better because bigger paycheck? Also, I just want to point out, a lot of this is illegal as fuck. If these claims are true and not just butthurt little kids because “wha whaaa whaaa! I want more money!” Then they should file a report and get that shit handled. Posting on social media isn’t going to do shit. You’re only half right, and clearly not abreast of the issue, m8. While you’re correct that the working conditions are shit and illegal af (my m8 worked there in their Kent WA facility) and the way they purposefully stretch your hours and call you 30 mins before they want you there for random shifts that they will fire you if you don’t take. The piss bottle thing is legit. If he didn’t run across the warehouse and sort quickly enough he got screamed at and told he had to do manual unpaid overtime or he was shitcanned, and they would blacklist him for any other company he would apply to. Any time he got a phone call from work while off shift he would end up in tears due to stress. Reporting the conditions didn’t help. The other problem is they are being paid the absolute lowest wage that is legal to pay them, and of those 60 hr weeks? Obit 40 hrs of it gets paid. Rest is mandatory unpaid ot. Jeff Bezos makes billions. Please tell me why he can’t afford to pay his workers fair wages and to fix working conditions? Why he refuses Seattles $15 minimum and the yearly taxes? I know it’s bc he can get away with it currently, but that’s why ppl are upset. That’s why they’re bringing up his wage. Bc this issue is a 2 parter m8. Just sayin. That’s the thing. All of this people can legit sue for. I’m taking you at face value here. I’m coming at this like you are telling me the gospel truth. Reports need to be filed. Lawsuits filed. Because this shit is ILLEGAL. But people would rather bitch on social media. Get me?

Ooh, interesting historical note. I don’t usually share posts like this but I always want to piss off Megan Kelly I’m pissed off by Maget Kilo because I don’t know her but get news alerts about her every single day of my fucking life so I wanna piss her off, too.

Why are him and other hip hop artist doing more for the world than American government? Respect Because they’re the AMERICAN government, not the WORLD government And yet they find themselves in every other country’s business but their own. I don’t remember getting involved with India. You know who does mind their own business and keeps to themselves? North Korea.  I remember America setting up a military base in people’s countries like… (Source) while North Korea has not. I remember America trying to invade countries on some bullshit “you need freedom” while systematically destroying any kind of order by dismantling their governments and making no real attempt to make up for their fuck up.  Like the U.S. didn’t purposefully cause unrest in Latin America with those Banana Wars. Like the U.S. started war with Iraq after being told not to by the United Nations then getting in their feeling when France elected not to help them talking about some bullshit “We call French Fries, Freedom Fries from here on in”. Like the U.S. doesn’t literally routinely destabilize areas or entire continents for financial gain. I suggest you put down the little star and stripe print flag and read up about your own country’s shenanigans. Mad cuz bad.  Can’t respond properly huh? Lmfao that’s why you’re in my inbox using taunts that 13 year old white kids on Call of Duty servers use huh? Deactivate your account and go sign up for a history class at your local community college. Dragggggg Yeah if you literally can’t think of at least 10 things America has done when it comes to interfering in other countries’ politics and peoples then you have no room for an opinion. Period. Because your opinion is not based on any facts and therefore irrelevant. If you need help I can source you about 20 books to start.

Children, Memes, and Vladimir Putin: INTERNATIONA SYRIAN CONFLICT Oct. 13 President Francois Hollande of France has accused Russia of war crimes over its involvement in the Syrian Civil War. Russian President Vladimir Putin has canceled plans to visit France next week, after French President François Hollande suggested Russia was guilty of war crimes for its involvement in the Syrian Civil War. _ Russia has supported the Syrian government in its more than 5 year conflict against rebels and recently vetoed a UN Security Council resolution to end airstrikes in Aleppo and allow Humanitarian aid into the city. On Wednesday 15 people, including children, were killed in an airstrike on a marketplace in a rebel-held part of the city of Aleppo, presumably by Russian warplanes. Russia has denied purposefully killing civilians, claiming that it targets terrorist groups. _ France and the U.S., meanwhile, have accussed Moscow of prolonging the conflict by supporting Syria's embattled President, Bashar al-Assad. Washington broke off all negotiations with Moscow nine days ago amid extreme tension over failure to secure a truce. Secretary of State John Kerry agreed to a renewal of talks on Wednesday that will take a multilateral approach to end the violence and resume humanitarian aid delivery. Estimates of total casualties in the civil war are as high as 470,000 since its start more than 5 years ago.

Books, Internet, and Michelle Obama: Anonymous (ID: zgWafymD) 07/19/16(Tue)02:17:19 No.81715177 You shills are mighty stupid. Trump is literally trolling the entire internet with his wife's speech right now. A few sentences of the first paragraph of a 17 minute speech happens to have similarities to Michelle Obama's speech. Over 50 media outlets have already posted the entire speech or part or the video to point this out. This is classic Trump free media. Her message is now out in full even on liberal media sites. He has put forward a half truth / error and is fully aware of the error knowing he will get publicity for it. The opposition (The media) quickly quickly moves to re-announce his message and then are blasting him for it. People will go watch the entire speech themselves The opposition reinforces the idea to the public (for him) an issue that he was trying to reinforce. (By making people read the speech and by placing Michelle Obama's name into headlines, further cementing the idea Melania will be the first lady) If anyone has ever read the books Art of the Deal or How to get Rich Trump literally tells you how to plant a story like this in the media. >>81715309 # >-8171 5810 # s Trump purposefully does this to get his wife free publicity he specifically chose Michelle Obama to plagiarize so they will be shown side by side in the media people start subconsciously considering them BOTH first ladies he gets the whole nation thinking past the sale" and subconsciously presuming he'll be president <p><a href="https://priceofliberty.tumblr.com/post/147658634943/trump-is-so-stupid" class="tumblr_blog">priceofliberty</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>“Trump is so stupid!”<br/></p></blockquote> <p>I want to scream but this is probably quite accurate.
