Remember we are always here for you and we wish you the best.

Below are some cool things you can do to cheer up yourself and others!

A masterpost on things that you could use to do better in school, and maybe to cheat just a little bit. 

Didn’t Listen In Class?  

Calculators & Solvers 

Didn’t Read That Book? 

Citing Sources 

Arts Department (Art, Choir, Band) P.S I take art so I’ll have the most resources for that

General Tips and Tricks 

That’s all. It’s not a lot but I guess it will help. This is my first masterpost and I hope you like it. If any of the links don’t work, just message me. 

Dear Dormir, I heard that with kimono there is a certain way to put them on, also that folding on side over the other (like right side over left and left over right) may mean different things, along with the different ways to tie the sash (?). What is the correct way and what does it mean? I try avoid drawing kimono all together in case I get the style wrong.


Yes there is a certain way to put them on. Most important thing is “left over right”! This “left” means on “your” left (when you’re wearing a kimono). So the front would be just like “y”. If you wear a kimono right over left, it means you’re DEAD.

And… actually I’m not that knowledgeable about kimonos tho here’re some more things I know that I can remember now. 

hope it helps… ;w;

As for the ways to tie sashes, there’re many ways to tie them (like 20 or more I guess). So honestly I don’t care that much when I draw them -w-;; If you need references of it you might wanna google it and find some pictures.


Need a safe website to watch / download ALL of the Gravity Falls episodes? Search no more!

I’ve collected all of the Gravity Falls episodes available so far & uploaded them to a public yet unlisted folder on Google Drive. 

You can view the folder here. Not all of them are HD or HQ, some of them are a bit of a low quality, & I apologize for that, but I think 480px is better than nothing at all. Please reblog to spread the word!!


UNDO- static preview (1) (2) (3)/code

I’ve put all of the fabric painting tutorials into one big photo post.

Includes silk painting with resist (Elven Banner), free-hand painting on stretch fabrics (Jareth from Labyrinth), fake embroidery with puffy paint (Peter of Narnia), graphite transfer paper with fabric paint pens (Tali from Mass Effect) and regular Tulip fabric paint (TARDIS lab coat).

Maybe this format is better?


im bored of life and everything so i decided to make a post of everything. like a ref list of workouts, studying help, writing, drawing… etc! this will literally take me hours i s2g


















Sorrynotsorry for the long post. (≧∇≦)/

Sadly it’s not as detailed as the other tutorial, but I didn’t intend to make one first and so I had to use the pictures I had.


Ahh yes, The dreaded school. When it comes around we all dread, new teachers, new schedule, some new unfamiliar faces, the MASSIVE amount of homework load, less time on tumblr. Here is another long post with a few sites and others to help you out here!

  1. Remember that today’s day in age is different from how it was back then. So don’t stress about school too much.High school students today have the anxiety of what a mental patient in the insane asylum had in the 50s. Here’s also a thing to show how times have changed.
  2. Prioritize. List what needs to get done first and when. Sometimes getting the bigger/harder tasks is easier than conquering the smaller/easier tasks.
  3. Set times when certain projects need to be done and stick to that deadline.
  4. Turn your phone off or give it to your parents while doing work/studying. I know that we live in the age of technology and literally everything is at the touch of our fingertips. Honestly though you can wait on what your favorite celebrity has to say or if your crush liked your instagram photo. You’ll be more involved in that than you are into your work.
  5. If you have trouble in a certain subject and there is no assigned seating, take advantage of the front. I guarantee you’ll learn more.
  6. Ask your teacher what exactly you’ll need to know. If you’re taking notes during the year, write in the margins whether or not it will be tested. It will be easier to know what you will be tested on.
  7. Save your exams. Half the time your teachers use the same questions (or questions similar) from your exams on your midterms or finals.
  8. Don’t try to do homework straight afterschool if you can’t, despite what everyone says. Give yourself an hour, and try to get some exercise in. I find it stops me getting bored of sitting down. Not to mention helps me concentrate better.
  9. Don’t just read the material, write it, draw it, recite it, quiz yourself on it! Until you have the material down.
  10. Join clubs, sports, or organizations! You’re guaranteed to find friends in there. You’ll already have common interests. Start with that and go with the flow.
  11. College kids: If you don’t have assigned seating, and you have been sitting in the same seat for 2 weeks. That is you assigned seat now. Don’t move or you’ll screw everyone up and they will hate you.
  12. Color code things, such as your notes. If you want to see how I color code my notes message me and I’ll be happy to show you
  13. Be kind to one another.

I think that about does it. So yeah:)


Each workout lasts the length of the song paired with it. So put on your sports anime playlist and let’s go!

You don’t need ANY equipment for this routine - heck, you can do this in bare feet and pajamas if you want to! It doesn’t take much room, either, so it’s perfect if you’re stuck in a tiny dorm or otherwise small living space.

Try to rest as little as possible between each move to finish when the song does. If you find yourself wanting to quit, don’t give up! Remember, Onoda didn’t quit when he had to pass 100 other racers to reach the rest of Sohoku, and neither did Seirin when they were facing Yosen and it seemed like all was lost. Push yourself to be the very best you can be!


Cardio: Yowamushi Pedal - "Be As One"
Strength: Kuroko no Basket - "Fantastic Tune"
Freestyle: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club - "Rage On"
Launch: Haikyuu!! - "Tenchi Gaeshi"

And if you’ve still got energy left and feel like you can keep going, feel free to hit the bonus round:

Cardio Burnout: Shingeki no Kyojin - "Guren no Yumiya"

It’s not sports anime, but you will feel like a total badass who can slay Titans by the time you’re done.
