So apparently I managed to redeem myself in my supervisor’s eyes by going in early and being really impressive. I mean, she was still not thrilled with my speed, but there weren’t complaints about quality and no implications of me not passing. I mean, I still wouldn’t be surprised if my grade turns up as a C, but that I can live with. Yaaaaaaaaay. …Though I’m super tired right now, because even though I went to bed very early I woke up at three in the morning and couldn’t fall back asleep. Eh. Still a surprisingly better day.
why aren’t these being reblogged more often?
i rather see these than “keys in hand”
Umm so since I’m stupid could someone kindly explain each step for me like step 3 am i head butting him in the face or the chest?
I think it depends on the height of the person, but I suppose the head is a more effective target. I hope this helps :)
Step 1: Step back the moment he reaches for you.
Step 2: Duck!
Step 3: Head butt him in the chin. It’s very important that it is the chin and not the chest because it is much more uncomfortable and disorienting to have your teeth bang together especially if it cuts his tongue (which it will if it is in the way). More than likely height won’t matter. He will be leaning forward from the missed attempt at grabbing you.
Step 4: Knee him in the balls.
Step 5: When he doubles over, jab him on his back. I believe at the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades would be best. I’m not an expert, but this seems like the best place, imo.
Step 6: Don’t lose contact. Bring your other hand over and slam your hands against the sides of his heads as hard as possible. Right on the ears is the best place; it is extremely disorienting if done correctly. Then take his head and bring it down on your knee as you bring your knee up. It’s very important that you avoid the nose because if you knee his nose it will definitely break and more than likely the bones will stab his brain killing him, so aim for his mouth instead.
Step 7: Keep your knee up and bring your foot out to kick him over. Personally, I don’t like the image because it looks like she kicked him with her toes. You do not want to do that. Instead kick him with the ball or heel of your foot and put power behind it with a push.
Step 8: He is on the ground. You could probably stop here and he would get the picture, but if you really want to…Your leg is still in the air from the kick. With all your force slam the edge of your your heel on his side. It will be more effective if you lower your body first by bending at the knee of the leg your weight is on. Done right, you can break a rib or two.
reblogging again for that^
“fresh, warm cookies delivered until 3 AM”
WHAT IS THIS SORCERY
WHY IS THIS ONLY AN AMERICAN THING OH MY GOD
one of my good friends goes to Rutgers University and he says this is the best thing ever in the whole wide world
My Dad brought back cookies from here
AND FUCK THEY WERE AMAZING
Friends, you have no idea how beautiful a thing Insomnia Cookies are. If you’re in the NYC area, get them. Now. Or in an hour. Or 3 hours. Because they are there for you.
we had one in Columbus and they were so convenient during finals. and they deliver!
There is no way this is not Chicago.
Huh. That Insomnia Cookies location is next to a Jimmy John’s… is it in Ann Arbor? Because I don’t know where the home base of that one is, only that the truck goes around the UM campus in the evenings sometimes, or did when I was last in the city. Their cookies are amazing.
I’m trying to prove a point to a douche in my class who thinks girls are lying about enjoying marvel.
are you fucking kidding me along with there being tons and tons of hot men its pretty fucking cool too come on
I LEARNED HOW TO READ OUT OF A MARVEL COMIC BOOK BEFORE I WENT TO PRESCHOOL, COME ON, IS THIS A JOKE!?
Um… technically I’m female-assigned agender who presents predominantly femme and generally uses the pronouns she/her, but I’m guessing that for the purposes of this specific discussion that is probably adequately close to “girl” for the statistic. I’ve seen all the recent Marvel superhero films. Including all the way back to the Hulk film, although I seem to recall being on prescription painkillers when I saw that one. And I have a library copy of Thor sitting on my couch right now to rewatch before I proceed any further into my fanfiction writing. Super looking forward to Winter Soldier. Definitely plan to watch SHIELD when it starts airing. I’ve certainly read comics too, but I’m frequently very busy (it has been a while since my last visit to the local comic shop as a result) and just a little more comfortable being active in the cinematic branch of the fandom.
Hi. I just had a really bad day. Like really really bad. The last time I had a day this bad that didn’t involve finding out someone I knew had died or something, I had just learned that I’d failed a class that would make it almost impossible to get into my preferred…
Thank you. *hugs back* I’m pretty sure it’s exactly as bad as I thought, unfortunately. She literally told me to stop presenting and go home for the night, and that just this one time she will chalk it up to the fact that some other things were going on this morning on-site but not my fault or anything that apparently literally made the news. She also at one point was like and it’s like you haven’t accomplished anything, or something along those lines. So I decided to stop trying to compensate for forms that don’t work for me and cannibalized a spare copy of the official one when I got home to make my own to use tomorrow instead. But I still feel completely terrified that I’m going to fail even though things had been getting better before literally everything went wrong today. In any case, thank you. Even though I still don’t feel awesome, your kind words have definitely helped anyways.
Hi. I just had a really bad day. Like really really bad. The last time I had a day this bad that didn’t involve finding out someone I knew had died or something, I had just learned that I’d failed a class that would make it almost impossible to get into my preferred graduate program type. If someone who isn’t my mother could please tell me that I don’t completely suck and still stand half a chance in hell of at least passing this month of graded practical experience, I would really appreciate it. Because right now, I’m torn between panic and tears and feel like I’m about to fail all the things on account of bring a dumbass who cant give presentations for shit because the given forms to use are very non intuitive to me even after approximately two weeks. Also I think my supervisor was this close to literally screaming at me. Help?
I am trying to prove something to my little sister.

I managed to get some season 1 dvds of Supernatural from the library. Because I’ve been getting increasingly sucked into the fandom even though I hadn’t watched any full episodes before now, and I figured I might as well have it be a firsthand rather than secondhand fandom . So now I’m utterly drowning in feels. Also I have the most cracktastic Supernatural and Avengers crossover fanfic idea. Like, about three times as cracky as Shrodinger’s Jotun aka the one where I won’t tell you who Loki’s human identity is. Like… a slightly AU version of Supernatural happens, the world does not end, and the Winchesters just sort of… vanish into thin air, never to be seen again. Exactly ten years later, Fury’s Big Week happens. The Thor bit… well, the movie is the official story, but what actually happens… um, *spoiler* Loki of Supernatural and Loki of Thor are one and the same, but the events of Avengers happen kind of differently. With Jane and Darcy actually being in NYC when everything goes down. And me going with the Loki was posessed idea. And later, Darcy actually has enough time to do Thor’s paperwork properly the second time around, so we get Don Blake. Awkward and spoilery question: does anyone remember if Jane ever wore a sleeveless shirt during Thor? Also, more importantly, what university does Darcy attend, and is she working on her bachelor’s or her master’s?
I would like to thank Griff at asexualeducation for assisting me throughout this process! Without her assistance, I would have never have had the knowledge to put this together.
As the infographic states: YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO CONFORM TO OR IDENTIFY WITH ANYTHING STATED HERE! This is simply me attempting to get some basic information down, in an attempt to help myself and other understand the vast sphere of asexuality.
I am always looking for new ideas for graphics. If you have something you wish for me to design, send me an ask! I’m interested in personal experiences as well as general knowledge, so, please, share your ideas with me. After all: WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!
(Side note: I have a very large 18”x24” version of this poster for print. If you want to print it, I can send you the file.)
Get a first look at Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Coming soon to ABC!
Just in case you, y’know, missed it or something.
I was certainly surprised to hear this was going to be a thing; but definitely checking it out.
And my day just became about 10x better. I am so excited for this series.
