Time changes everything

In regards to this post; I took a personal finance class in my senior year of high school, and it was probably the most meaningful class I ever took because everything I learned then has helped me nearly 13 years later. (I can’t say the same for Algebra, but…) I don’t know if all schools offer this class as an elective, but if they do — take it!!! It’s not the most exciting subject, I know. But it’s so important! So suffer through the boredom, because being able to pay your bills and having money left over is pretty exciting!

How to balance a checkbook

why is this on my dash. what the fuck im not 40 

Honestly you should start doing this when you start working.

You don’t have to be 40 to know valuable life skills tbh

I know people in their 50’s who don’t know how to do this. You need to know how to do this when you get your first job. It will make your life so much easier.

makerhavemercy asked: ▲ and ☮ for Malrian!

▲ for an enemy headcanon:

Malrian tends to kill his enemy’s rather quickly (or very slowly, if time permits.) so he doesn’t really have an arch nemesis or anything interesting like that. But he has a few rivals within the Thalmor, or a few Justiciars he just cannot stand… Like Ancarion. Ever wonder why Ancarion ends up in Solstheim and sent on a wild goose chase for Stalhrim? It’s because Malrian hates him, and he was totally trolling him when he expressed just how important it is that they find it.

☮ for a self headcanon:

Malrian is incredibly vain. His hair and clothes have to be perfect, and if he’s having a ‘bad hair day’ or if his eyes a look a little puffy he will cancel all his meetings and lock himself away in a dark room to brood about how ugly he feels. Needless to say, he does not react well to his first wrinkle…

those-strange-musings asked: ↹ for Lumen and ♘ for Malarian

↹ for a best friend headcanon:

Lumen has a really hard time making friends due to her trust issues. She actually started to like Delphine once she got to know her, and she did consider her a friend… right up until the point where she brings up the Thalmor, anyway. Delphine is tough as nails, pragmatic, and I’ll bet that when you get a little alcohol in her, that soldier’s sense of humor tends to come out. So she’s the type of woman Lumen can get along with very well. It’s a shame things are so strained between them now, but maybe they’ll be able to patch things up…

♘ for a favorite teacher headcanon:

For all the bickering they do, Elenwen is Malrian’s favorite teacher. She devoted her time to giving him magic lessons when he was a child, and she mentored him when he joined the Thalmor. They don’t always see eye-to-eye, but he can’t deny that he’s learned quite a lot from her, and he wouldn’t be where he is in the Thalmor if it weren’t for his sister devoting her time and attention to him.

I just got back from the annual ASTRO (American Society for Radiation Oncology) meeting. I meant to give everyone a head’s up that I’d be gone… But I forgot.

Anyway, the meeting was held in San Fransisco and even though I worked at our booth the entire time, it was still pretty awesome. Here are some highlights:

1. I had an hour for a break and I walked around Union Square for a while. A guy pulled me aside and asked me to take a picture of him and his girlfriend, and after I said yes he whispered to me that he was going to propose to her. So I took a ton of photos of the event. It was really sweet. :)

2. There was a crazy man running around Union Square screaming and ranting about how Obama is an alien from space an our only salvation is the rebirth of Johnny Cash.

3. I got yelled at for feeding a pigeon.

4. Went to a gay bar with a co-worker and… well, I’m not sure what was happening, but we were the only people in this bar who were NOT wearing fursuits. I don’t know if a convention was happening or what, but it was interesting! Definitely unexpected, but we still had a good time. The furries know how to party.

5. I ate too much food, drank too much wine, and spent way too much money.

6. Amazingly enough, I did not get hassled by TSA agents this time around. But I did have a cranky woman try to fight me for overhead bin space on the plane. (I was in the bulkhead seat and she was behind me, and she demanded that I put my luggage elsewhere so she could share the bin with her husband. I was like “Just, uhhhh, use the one over your seat?” and she was like “No. I want the first one.” It was fucking stupid and I told her so. Luckily, the flight attendant intervened when the woman started throwing a hissy fit.)

7. I stood for 8 hours straight in high heels and my feet will never be the same again. I will never do that again.

Anyway, it was a great trip but I am glad to be home. I’ve got sleep to catch up on, a liver to detox, and tons of fanfiction to read.
