My OTPs

My Top Ships from several different fandoms

*THERE MAY BE SPOILERS FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF CATEGORIES IN THIS POST*

Salutations!

If you’re confused:

A ship/ shipping: When two people (real or fictional) would, in your opinion, do very well in a relation-SHIP together.

Otp: O.T.P. stands for One True Pairing. Its pretty much your favorite ship of all time. You’re technically supposed to have one OTP but I kind of ignore that rule..

Now that y’all are properly educated, I would like to introduce you to my favorite OTPs from several different fandoms of mine. I’m going to do a variety of fandoms hopefully wide enough that you can find at least one that you like and can relate to.

This is going to be in 3 different categories inside each fandom. They are: My favorite like YASSS OTPs, my like yeah they’re good I guess I ship them but they’re not really OTP, and NEVER BE TOGETHERs.


Harry Potter

OTPs:

#Romione (ron and hermione)

Ron & Hermione are sooo freaking PERFECT for each other!!

#Neluna (neville and luna)

Neville and Luna are made for each other.

Sure, they’re good I guess:

#Hinny (harry and ginny)

I’m definitely very glad that they ended up together, and that Harry didn’t end up with Hermione but its just kinda like ehhh they’re cute, but they’re not like an all time favorite or anything.

NEVER.:

-#Druna (draco and luna)

People actually ship Draco and Luna and umm WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?? Luna is such a pure, innocent little bean that needs to be protected!! AND NOT WITH DRACO.

I did a VBS thing

(wow this sounds like a title to another post i did… i guess cuz this is kinda a similar type of post)

Salutations!

As you all may have noticed, I haven’t posted anything too recently. This is because all this week (from 8-12 each morning) I have been helping out at my churches VBS! For any of you who don’t know, VBS stands for Vacation Bible School. This year the theme was “Galactic Starveyors”. This means the whole thing was teaching the kids about how God created the universe!

I was working in the Snacks station. Or at least I thought I was going to be… until..

5 minutes before the first class of kids came in on Day 1, I was told that instead of actually doing the snacks I had to do a devotional demonstration thing with each class of kids WHILE they were eating snack.

If you know me at all, you know that whole “Talking in front of people” thing is not really something I’m good at or comfortable with… so that was quite the surprise.

I ended up having to do the snacks as well anyways. So basically every 20 minutes I would have to reset a classroom with snacks and drinks for the next class and then teach this lesson plan to them while they were eating. It was quite a busy job!

Favorite Part.png

Wednesday was Water Day! This meant we rented two huge inflatable water slides and have waterballoon and squirt gun fights! So much fun! The snack for that day was self-serve watermelon and popsicles so I wasn’t really needed. But that meant I got to squirt kids with water guns all day!! And then in the afternoon once all of the kids left, all the volunteers got pizza and got to go on the water slides for two hours!

Favorite Part (1).png

Also for some reason two of the demonstrations I was assigned to do involved fire… In one I had to light a candle and then pop a balloon over it (cuz Jesus) and then in the other I had to light a tea bag on fire. (also cuz jesus). So yeah, that was terrifying.


It was very stressful but also very fun! I got to spend so much time with my friends and very cute little kids! It was definitely a learning experience!

Sorry for such the short post!

Have you ever attended or worked at a VBS? Was there a theme? What was your best/worst memories from it?

p.s. i’m currently listening to “pitiful children” from the be more chill soundtrack and its great

Babysitting 101

Tips for what to do when small children's lives are entrusted %5C.png

Salutations!

As teenagers, we are no longer small children, therefore we’re gonna need some money. However, we are also not adults which means we are not trusted with an actual job. Basically, teenagers need money but its hard for them to get it.

giphy2

There a couple common jobs that can be trusted to teenagers. A main one is babysitting. I’m sure you all know what babysitting is, because you’ve probably had a babysitter yourself when you were younger! But I am here today to give you some tips and tricks, to hopefully make your babysitting career a little easier.

#1. Be confident!.png

These people are entrusting their precious little child’s life into your care, for a period of time! The parents are trusting you to know what you’re doing, and so is the child! Its frankly quite terrifying! But even if you’re freaking out, try you’re to remain calm and chill, like the kid would expect you to be. If the kid senses that you’re nervous or uncomfortable they could make your job a whole lot more difficult. (aka probably crying and tantrums and such) But if you’re really too nervous, maybe refer to #5 on this list.

#1. Be confident! (1).png

Everyone already knows the basic Emergency number, 9-1-1. But before babysitting, you may want to familiarize yourself with some other numbers such as the poison control center. Make sure you also know:

  • A phone number where you can reach your employer if necessary
  • a neighbor (of employer) or close trusted person’s phone number for emergnecy purposes  (ask employer about this)
  • And make sure you know emergency numbers for police, ambulance, fire, and poison center and such.

(hopefully the emergency numbers won’t need to be used, but they’re good to know if there’s a situation like the one above)

#1. Be confident! (3).png

This is best if you’ve never met the kid/ parents before. Obviously ask the parent if you can, and don’t just show up like 15 minutes early without doing so, because that’s just weird. But if they say you can, try to get there a bit early so they can familiarize you with things such as: important rules that the child must follow, foods the child is allowed to eat, how long the child can watch tv, etc., before they leave. Very helpful and professional.

i got a gif saying what i wanted and its from one of my fav movies ever?!?! heck yeah!!

#1. Be confident! (5).png

When getting information like what I mentioned in #3, make sure you get the routines and schedules of the child’s bedtime schedule, eating schedule and such. Very important.

#1. Be confident! (6).png

If you really are way too nervous to start babysitting, you might want to ask your parents if a babysitting class is the right next step for you! Last summer I attended a 2-day babysitting with course with two of my friends at my local women’s hospital! It was definitely very informative and helpful. It also taught me how to CPR and the Heimlich maneuver, which could help save the life of a child I’m taking care of!

#1. Be confident! (7)

This is one of my favorites, haha! XD Basically if a kid needs to get in bed, but doesn’t want to, you could say something like “Don’t you dare get in bed!”(not violently) Works almost every time! (on younger children)

#1. Be confident! (8).png

Basically what I’m saying here, is don’t be dumb and use common sense.

  • Don’t wear clothing to a babysitting job that maybe be inappropriate or have foul language written on it.
  • Don’t use foul language yourself around the parents or children.
  • Don’t let the kid do something you think/know the parents wouldn’t allow.
  • Supervise children of all ages CONSTANTLY. No being on your phone the whole time!
  • Pay even closer attention to younger children while they’re eating and to make sure the don’t choke.
  • Be gentle with the kids.
  • BE SMART AND THINK YOUR WORDS AND ACTIONS THROUGH. Thank you.

use-your-brain

#1. Be confident! (9)

You’re here for two possible reasons.

1) You have a love for kids and want to help parents

-In this case, don’t forget why you’re there! Remember to be a happy and positive influence in the child’s life! Your goal should make it enjoyable and safe for the child, while helping out the parents.

2) Ya need some cash

-In this case you should still remember why you are there! Do a job deserving of the money you want to get. Even if you’re just there to get paid, make sure you still take good care of the kid so you’re really deserving of the money you get.


I hope you guys like this post and it helped you out somehow!

Leave any more tips you may have, or fun babysitting stories in the comments below!!

p.s. be more chill & natasha, pierre, and the great comet of 1812, are both veryyy good musicals. okay? okay.

 

 

Wrap-Up// May 2017

June 2017

May is finally over! Which means.. School is out and summer is here!! Yayy! I’ve been very sick off an on for all of May, so sorry for the lack of posts. While I was off being sick I got some stuff done. Here’s what I did

Horizons

 

  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan {Read}
  • The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan {Read}
  • The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan {Read}
  • The House of Hades by Rick Riordan {Reading}
  • The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis {Reading}

I was very busy during May, and I was battling various sicknesses, so I did not get to read as much as I would have liked, but I did enjoy all the books that I did get to. And if you can’t tell Rick Riordan is a fave at the moment!!

Horizons (2)

 

  • Newsies the Musical Soundtrack
  • Heathers the Musical Soundtrack
  • The Light Behind Your Eyes by My Chemical Romance
  • Dear Happy by Dodie Clark
  • Ode to Sleep by Twenty One Pilots

All very good songs that you should listen to!! (warning: The Heathers sountrack is explicit)

Horizons (4).png

  • On May 4th I performed in my first ever full play, A Midsummer Nights Dream by Shakespeare which I have some posted you can read about it somewhere.
  • As I said earlier I was very sick on and off throughout May so that’s a thing.
  • Within my Thespian Troupe I was nominated for 2 awards, Best Fairy (in our production) and Most Likely to Fall Off of the Stage!!
  • I had my band concert for my school’s Symphonic band that I play euphonium in! We kinda screwed up the ending of our Doctor Who theme song piece, but otherwise we did great!
  • I took all of my final exams for school and officially graduated the seventh grade!
  • I also made a lot more friends, and became closer with a lot of people in my thespian troupe. Unfortunately most of these friends will be going off to highschool next year… Where I will probably never get to see them again.. how fun

Horizons (5).png

  • I’ve really been liking Heathers the Musical this past month. I’m not sure its exactly healthy but.. oh whale
  • Heroes of Olympus/ just Rick Riordan in general. Rick is a god. Also #Percabeth. goalsssss
  • Dr. Pepper. Dr. Pepper is some good stuff
  • Lying on my back outside with the lower half of my legs sticking into our pool while reading. Especially if there is a light rain.
  • Isabelle Hyde. If you like twenty one pilots or mcr, go check out Isabelle Hyde on youtube. please
  • Theres this one youtube channel called scribs(they used to be galactibun) and they do these animatics on songs from musicals and they’re reallllyyyyy good. Their Connor Murphy(Dear Evan Hansen) is an obsession in itself!

Goals for.png

1) I want to read at least 10 books. Its summer I should be able to do this. 7 of these books should be from my TBR list. My TBR list is superrrrr long and I own a lot of the books from it, so this shouldn’t be too difficult.

2) I want to get better at needle felting. I started this recently and I kinda suck at it.. Like I made this bird (from a kit too) and it looks a little… sick? diseased? not at all like a bird?

3) I should work out more and eat healthier. Probably not gonna happen but.. oh whale.. those cookies are just too good to leave alone..

4)I want to post on each blog with at least 5 QUALITY posts on each. Also probably not going to happen

5) I want to deep clean and rearrange my bedroom, and me and my mom are starting that today so yayy!!!

What are y’alls plans for this month?
