20 Things Everyone Should Know How To Do By The Time They’re 25

haha, I didn’t even get half of this xD

Thought Catalog

1. Cook a quick crap-I-slept-in-and-can’t-be-late-for-work breakfast, a lazy weekend brunch, dinner when it’s just you, dinner for guests, and a cake from scratch because nobody should suffer store-bought on their birthday.

2. Ask for a raise tactfully, or negotiate a salary at the the onset of a new job. You’re worth what you ask for. Know what you deserve for the work you do.

3. Craft a thank you note, a solid resume, and even an out-of-the-blue email to someone whose career you admire or whose company you’d love to work for because sometimes not having the guts to hit “send” is the only thing keeping you from your dreams.

4. Laundry, up to and including a rough approximation of folding a fitted sheet.

5. Live within a budget — one that includes putting a little away every month in a savings account.

6. Exert control over your patience and temper…

If my heart had wings

A pretty lighthearted visual novel. I learned about it while searching for VN to read on iPad. Even though my iPad did not run it quite well (it is a dated iPad 2) and the lack of voice acting discouraged me from looking further into it, the name stuck.

And thank goodness it did, when I was looking for VN to read on PC. I was like “oh, so it has a PC version too?” and immediately downloaded it, along with the “restoration patch”. Turned out the official English version (the iOS version I downloaded) had horrible translation and excessive censoring, and a patch was needed to correct that.

It’s been a while since the last time I woke up expecting an email and ended up disappointed throughout the day for not receiving it. An interview I did not get. Not that I am too depressed about it, just something that made my day a little gloomier than usual. I got another interview for Wednesday anyway.

18 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Shy And Introverted

Wow. Just wow.

This… this is my soul song, people. This is my Vietnam.

1. You’re not anti-social, you’re selectively social.

2. At any given point, you have one (maybe two) best friends who are your entire life. You’re not a “group of friends” person. You can’t keep up with all that.

3. Social gatherings that are supposed to be “rites of passage” like prom and dances and other such typical nonsense is just… not for you. You don’t understand it. You want nothing to do with it.

4. When you do choose to grace a party with your presence, you are the life of it. You’re dancing on the table and doing body shots until 3 a.m.

5. … You then retreat into three days of complete solitude to recover.

6. You go out of your way to avoid people, but when you inevitably have to interact with them, you make it…

Sexless Friend

cover

A short series, just 14 chapters long. It tells the story of Suou Tsukasa – a freshman at college, nicknamed “Prince” due to his popularity with girls. At first, it seems like he enjoyed their company and not at all bothered but in fact, he hates straightforward and aggressive girls. The only one he likes is one of his classmates: Kizaki Megumu, a rather shy girl. Their homeroom professor, Dr. Hime is a very young teacher, whose childish looks and personality led her to be considered like a senpai rather than a teacher to her students. After a night out with the class, a drunken Hime is carried home by Tsukasa and there he learned the secret of his sensei’s love life. Basically he is scared of girls and she is scared of guys. So they decided to become “sexless friend” in order for them to overcome their fear and in Tsukasa’s case, to get him to get together with Kizaki.
