  • Mood: Love
  • Listening to: EXO - CALL ME BABY
Oh boy, isn't this going to be a fun one. It's time to get all up and controversial, right? No. What I'm going to write down is going to be necessary no matter what walk of life you have. Whether you're going to be a mechanic, an artist, a doctor, or a business owner, these are all things you should know, if not by age 18, then by age 25. They are vital for all but the most fringe of lifestyles (at least in the first world).

Number 1: How to Use a Computer & How to Use the Internet
Uh... no durr. You're using a computer right now (or phone or something like that) AND the internet to boot. Actually, there is a lot more to using the internet to browse the web and there's a lot more to using a computer than using it to browse the web. I personally think that an in depth computer class should be mandatory in at least elementary school. In my elementary school computer class, all we did was play typing games or Oregon Trail. By the time you get out of elementary school you should know how to properly install an application. By the time you get out of middle school you should know how to type 60 words per minute on both a QWERTY and Dvorak keyboard (Dvorak is kind of like the typing equivalent of the metric system. It's better, but we don't use it because it'd be "too inconvenient" to change). By the time you get out of high school you should know how to properly construct a password and recognize a phishing scam. You should know how to navigate the deeper regions of your computer and manage a command prompt and task manager. You should also know basic HTML (Javascript is optional). You should also know how to properly use privacy protection on social media. This day and age, everyone uses computers. There's almost no reason not to, and you should know how to work on it efficiently.

Number 2: PC Repair
You know that PC (or Mac) you're relying on to complete that status report, maintain your business, finish that college term paper? Well, it's going to break down. It's going to do that a lot. In that situation, there are three things you can do. Number one, you can buy a new state of the art computer (don't buy anything less, it's not worth it), which is really expensive. Number two, you can pay someone to fix your computer. If they aren't a friend or relative, it will be over-priced. Number three is to fix it yourself, which will save you money and can save vital information. By the time you graduate high school you should be able to take a PC apart and put it back together again. You should know what piece does what, and what parts will electrocute you if you handle them incorrectly. You should know how to properly clean or replace hardware, and most of all, you should know when it's time to get your computer replaced entirely (and how to transfer your old information to the new one). Also, as a plus, you can start your own over-priced PC repair shop. 

Number 3: Cooking, Health, and Nutrition
I don't care if you're a man or a woman, or think it's beneath you. You have to learn how to cook. And no, the microwave stuff doesn't count. A packet of Top Ramen contains 66% of your daily sodium intake. You eat two of these every day and you're bound to come down with diabetes or another food-related illness at a point far too early in your life. First thing is first though, you need to learn how to read food labels. (What I'm going to tell you is unfortunately based in US only. Different countries have different regulations). These dietary values are based on a 2000 calorie diet. Unless you're a young adult woman, this probably isn't the number you should use. Most people need anywhere from 2,100 calories to 2,500 calories, unless you're pregnant. Then it's around 2,800. Use this: www.calorieking.com/interactiv…

Also, if calories are all you're using to measure how well you're eating... you're doing it wrong. Wheat bread has more calories than white bread, but a lot more essential nutrients. You also need to know some more basic things too. Never buy dented cans. Ever. Fish may contain mercury and vegetables may contain pesticides, so be cautious. Use a different cutting board for meat and vegetables. Humans cannot digest corn and celery takes more calories to chew than it gives, so if you eat nothing but either of them you'll probably starve to death. Always pay attention to serving size and serving amount. Spaghetti is probably the easiest thing to cook. General cooking (not like being a fancy chef or anything) isn't complicated. It's all about following a recipe.

Now about the energy that comes out. Even if you have the most hyperactive metabolism ever, you need to exercise. Walk or ride a bicycle for about 30 minutes a day. If you're in a crowded city though, that might be difficult. There are plenty of exercises you can do in the comfort of your own home... like yoga, or sit-ups/push-ups. On the flip-side: don't overdo it. If you're sore, don't exercise. Your muscles are probably sore because they're rebuilding themselves. That's why exercise hurts, by the way. The muscles sort of tear themselves and repair themselves stronger than before.

Number 4: Home Economics
At some point you're going to be living with someone, hopefully someone you care about. And eventually one important question will come up: who is going to be the first person to clean the toilet? Once again, I don't care if you're a man or a woman, you need to know how to pick up after yourself. No one is going to want to live with a messy asshole of either sex. You need to know how to wash dishes, what chemicals to use on what surface, how to kill odors, and NEVER MIX AMMONIA AND BLEACH. If you think I'm being insulting/condescending to men here, you also need to know the basics of home repair too: how to replace a fuse, how to unclog a drain, how to paint a house, how to install a shelf, properly take measurements of a room. These are all vital skills that you're going to need at some point. Unless you want to waste money on a maid or something. Speaking of that...

Number 5: How to Use and What to Use Money On
It sounds really, really simple, doesn't it? I mean, don't spend on frivolous junk when you can't afford it and don't max out your credit cards, right? No. You can only pay off one of two bills right now: water or electricity. Which one is more vital to you? Hopefully you'll never have to deal with that problem, but a similar concept really transcends where you are economically. Above that, when your car breaks down and you need to get it repaired, what are you going to cut spending on? What insurance is really more important at this point in time? Above that there's figuring out what NOT to buy, and that's usually the cheapest thing available. Always pick reliable over cheap. It will save you a lot of money and strife in the long run. It's good to have a savings account you don't touch in case of emergencies. Just got to figure out what those emergencies are, you know? Two of my most important rules are: never buy money and never lend money. The only exception to this rule is if someone's dying and you didn't think that health insurance was a good enough investment (it is. Get health insurance. It's the first insurance you should get). Living paycheck to paycheck is not a good place to be, but it's best to know for sure what you'd do in that situation. What is truly optional?

Number 6: "How to Take Orders" and "How to Give Orders"
No matter what career you have, you're going to be doing at least one of these two things. If you don't do the orders exactly as intended, it's going to be your fault. If you give someone poorly communicated orders that they fudge up, it's going to be your fault. If you want to be someone's employee, they're going to want, before anything else, someone who will listen to them. And chances are, they won't convey their intentions the best. Communications happen all the time and sometimes death and disaster results because people didn't interpret orders correctly. Think logically and try to read intention along with directly taking words into account. Even if you start your own business, you're going to take orders from clients. If you're making and selling stuff, you're taking orders from the market, or you're not selling anything. Giving orders isn't too far off either. You just have to realize that if anyone screws up, it's on your head. Don't give vague abstractions. Be as concrete as possible. There are no careers that don't fall into one of these two categories, not even being an artist (networks, clients, collaborators). This is one of the tenements of communication you will need as an adult. You're also going to have to compensate for the person you are giving/receiving orders to/from has any deficiencies. Some of your bosses will be stupid. Some of your clients will be stupid. If you follow their orders to a tee, you will screw up and they will blame you. Yeah, it's really complicated, but virtually everyone's got to do it.

Number 7: How and When to Lie
I'm not kidding. I don't care how moral you think you are. At some point, you're going to need to lie and you're going to need to be convincing about it. I mean, try telling your boss that he's an absolute moron. It's not going to go well. I'm not telling you to go around lying like a maniac. I'm telling you to lie to protect your coworker's job after he made a simple mistake. Like I said, learn "when" to lie, too. There are things called white lies that do keep people happier, if you know what the fuck you're doing. What I'm saying is do it ethically. Use good judgement to figure out if a lie will do more damage or less damage. I mean, if you own up to a mistake and get fired at your job, your ethics won't mean jack shit as your family starves to death.

Beyond that, being a better liar helps you recognize a liar. If you know how it works, how to hide your micro expressions, keep your stories simple, you'll know when someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. If no one ever lied, there wouldn't be three friends in the whole world. You're going to need to at some point. Do it ethically.

Number 8: Civics
One thing they don't teach you in high school is how to pay your taxes. It's something they just expect you to know. That just always felt kinda funny to me. Basically know what you need a license for, what you can write off for taxes, and keep up on local politics. Whatever the president is doing right now probably won't affect you too much, but whatever your mayor is doing probably will. A lot. Also, know when your vote counts. You want to hear a joke?

My sister: "I'm turning 18 next month! I can finally vote!"
Me: "Woah, that's so cool. It's going to be a few years before I can get on the electoral college."

The electoral college is stupid (the concept, not the individuals on it). I can't give much advice for anything specific here, because it does vary from place to place. Know the laws in your town, state, and country. In most places, ignorance is not an excuse for guilt. If you break a law you didn't know about, you still broke the law. Use more than one source for news. What they report is almost as important as how they report it. Keep up to date on the issues that affect you personally.

Number 9: Ask Questions
You are sheep! You are all sheep! Just kidding, but don't be one. EA used to have a saying before they turned to shit: "challenge everything." Yeah, that about sums up one of my philosophies. Ask questions. About everything. Actually read those terms of service to get access to online services. In most cases you shouldn't bring these questions up to the people in charge, but questioning things can keep you ahead of the curve. A company may make confusing policies before it's about to lay off people or close down completely.

Learn how to recognize logical fallacies. All of them. No one is going to teach you how to think, or be an individual. You have to take this upon yourself. And the only way to do that is ask questions. Questions aren't much without answers though. So put that internet to use, or go to a library, or check out the media. Know this: knowledge and experience is nothing that can be truly stolen from you (if you do lose it, you probably won't realize you had it at all). One of the most important questions you can ever ask is "why do things have to be the way they are?" This leads to pretty much all change everywhere.

Number 10: Try New Things
During my senior year I took a bunch of extra curriculars at high school. I took everything from web design to cooking to psychology. This was one of my more desperate attempts to find out what I wanted to do with my life (and give me actually useful skills). Did I succeed? Well. No. If you've been paying attention I didn't figure out that I wanted to go into animation until I was 5 years graduated. In fact, I didn't really like any of these subjects. Ignoring the classes I got with bad teachers (which is something to watch out for), I realized that none of these things were what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. Do you know what? That's almost as valuable. Trying something and not liking it is just as useful information to you as trying something and liking it.

Try not to abandon something as soon as you feel you don't like it. If there's parts you like, stick with it. I mean, if it's a slog forget about it, you know? Here's the thing: you're not going to like anything entirely. This is how you figure out what you want to do with your life: find out what you can tolerate the most. There's always going to be a bad part, an annoying part, a hard part. If you like it enough, you'll power through it. If you don't like it, maybe it's not the thing for you. Check out a book you wouldn't think about before. Listen to a song from a band you've ignored.

It seems like this should be the most simple one, but a lot of people forget this, or don't bother with it. If you don't keep yourself open to new things though, your life may get stagnant and boring. Hell, a good place to start is any of the other things on this list here. It doesn't hurt to try. If you've got access to the internet, you could learn literally anything. It might not lead to anything but some wasted time. Maybe it'll lead to personal fulfillment, or maybe it'll lead to a simple hobby. You won't know until you try. If you haven't figured out what you want to do with your life, this is a necessity. If you have, this stops things from being mundane and routine.


-----
Keep in mind that some of these things are more "I wish I knew" than I actually do know, but they are all extremely useful in my adult life.

So, what do you guys think are vital for every adult life?
Not impressed by people right now. 

I've made so much Cracked After Hours fan art where I over-thought the characters, and suggested things like Daniel having anxiety disorder, Soren fearing being weak because his parents were fucked up, Michael being a sad figure who is dimly aware that he's losing his mind, or that Katie is into guys acting like dogs.

That's all fine, but when I quote the series for saying they aren't straight or cis and try to suggest what they might be, suddenly I'm "pigeonholing it" and "being weird" and "too tumblr".

Is the idea of a character not being straight or a guy not minding being called a woman really that scary? I've even suggested Daniel likes to fuck machinery and that was a-okay, but oh my god what are these scary word demisexual and genderqueer!?

The series is all about overthinking stuff. The characters overthinks pop culture, and the fans overthink the series itself. I've seen it suggested that they're all dead and in the afterlife, that it's all in Daniel's head, that Michael killed a man to get close to Katie, that they're hooked up to a virtual world without realizing it, that Soren is a god, and so on.

The series dedicated a whole episode to the idea that Peter Pan might be a pedophile, so wondering if Michael is pansexual is not that scary.

I got a chance to do a few fan fictions lately for commissions and enjoyed them a lot more than I thought I would. I'm interested in doing a bunch more of them, so I've decided to do a little sale.

Until April 15th, any commission revolving around a fandom will be half price. The deal applies to both SFW and NSFW stories. PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM ONLY DOING THIS FOR SHORT STORIES. This would take me forever to complete if I offered the deal to full stories as well, so I hope everyone understands. ^^;

SFW Short Story|1,000 words - 1,500 words
$5/5:points:$2.50/250:points:

C - Down TimeFallon sat on the roof of the head quarters as she stared out at the city below her. A few strands of her chocolate hair slipped free from her ponytail and whipped about her face, refusing to stay put no matter how many times she slid them back behind her ears. Eventually she had given up and just allowed them to fly free.
She was reflecting back on the chaos that had been plaguing their city during the past few weeks. There were whispers around HQ that things were only going to get worse in the coming days. A part of her hoped that the suspicions were wrong. After all, it was her job to protect the people and she would never wish harm on them. Then again, she could not help but look forward to an opportunity to prove her worth around here.
The roof door squeaked open behind her, causing her back to turn ridged. This was her down time, her rare few moments to relax and she was not at all interested in spending it engaged in mindless chit-chat. She twisted around to let the newcomer kno

C - Better Late Than NeverKida sighed softly to herself as she stared out the window into the rainy night. It was long past the time Ed had told her he would arrive; when he had left nearly a month ago, he had promised that he would be back home to her in time for the first day of summer. That day had already come and gone about two weeks ago, and she was beginning to lose hope that he was ever going to return. It was time for her to stop wasting her energy on waiting up for him.
She pulled the window curtains in place and padded barefoot into the bedroom. Instinctively she reached for the faded tank top that was slung over the rocking chair in the corner of the room, but she hesitated for a moment. Each night since Edward had left for his trip, she had been taking his old tank top to bed and cuddling with it, relying on the familiar smell of him to get her through until the morning. A part of her almost wanted to just leave the rat


I would prefer to do fandoms that I am familiar with, but I am open to those I have never seen before. Keep in mind that if you ask for a fandom that I am not familiar in, I will do basic research for the commission and that is it. I won't watch the entire show, I won't memorize the fandom wiki. I will learn what is needed and that is all.

Fill out the form below and note it to me if interested!

Fandom:
Main Characters: (Include their name, appearance, personality, and their relationship to the other characters)
Side Characters: Optional (Same info is needed)
Setting: (Tell me where to story takes place)
Synopsis: (Give me a brief summary of what you want to happen in the story)

Make sure to familiarize yourself with my commissioning terms as well! I am not responsible for you not reading this over. Terms can be found in my regular commissioning journal:

Writing Commissions: OpenThese are open again; please keep in mind that they will be delivered a lot more slowly than normal. I have no computer, so all stories will now be typed up via my phone and submitted that way. Please, if you want to help me get a new computer, pick one of these up~ :heart:
Surprisingly enough, I've been getting a fair amount of commissions since I have returned from my little break. Because of this, I have decided to make a journal with official prices and whatnot. Please make sure to read this entire journal before placing a commission. It will help avoid conflict and confusion down the road. These commissions will ALWAYS be open unless I have stated otherwise.
