I usually type out a note on my phone, and let them read and type back, but I really want to learn sign language because of it. Are there any apps that you would recommend to help me learn, or is there a way that you would highly recommend? I really want to learn :)

Hmm I’m not familiar with any apps. Anyone help out that person?

But— the best sites are: aslpro and lifeprint . I’m not a HUGE fan of youtube videos because you don’t often know that person’s credibility. Though, if you send me links I’ll be happy to check out and let you know if it’s thumbs up or down. :)

The BEST way to become good at ASL is interacting with deaf people and taking ASL classes irl. 

The guy from life print has an app called fingerspell and it’s really good practice for finger spell. you can adjust how many letters in the word and how fast it gets spelt. I definitely recommend that.
There you go, atbunnyyawnsweirde!

Thank you! :)

Tutorial: how to make organized notes.

  1. Read the objectives of the lecture. If there aren’t any, flip through the lecture slides and make an outline. This puts into perspective what you need to be learning and what you should get out of this lecture.
  2. Skim the book to get familiar with how the information is divided compared to your outline or objectives. While doing this, you’ll figure out whether or not you need the extra details from the book. Sometimes the lecture is enough and you could keep the textbook just as a reference to things you don’t get.
  3. Write down the first objective and flip to the page in the book that has the information pertaining to that objective. Read the lecture slide then refer to the book for details.
  4. Combine your lecture notes with the textbook information. Do this by rewriting the information in your own words and try to be as concise as possible. 
  5. Keep doing this for every objective. Paste things if it helps.
  6. Make sure that you’re not just copying information. Use visual aids as much as possible. Put the information in a table, flowchart, diagram, etc.. (refer to this post to see how I make my flowcharts).
  7. When you’re done with all your objectives, go through the lecture and your notes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

General tips on how to keep them organized:

  • Be systemic. Making objective-oriented notes is one way to do that. 
  • Use two (or more colors). Color-coding information helps me remember it + it doesn’t look that bad.
  • Section your objectives according to the topic. Then make sure that when you’re writing out the information, it’s in a sequence that’s understandable.

Disclaimer: this is the way I’ve been making my notes since I started med school. By no means am I claiming it’s perfect or that everybody should follow it.

Hope this helps and as always, happy studying :)

If anyone knows this guy and knows his tumblr, let me know please!

one of my favourite superstitions is this one they have in china where ghosts allegedly can’t turn corners, so in shanghai they built a bridge made entirely of 90° turns to ward off the evil spirits

"A British person would be likely to make [the Chinese sign language gesture for ‘father’] with the fingers relaxed [rather than tensed], and that would be noticed by a Chinese deaf person as a foreign accent."

In which Elle Woods is smarter than Sam Winchester.

If we are going with the premise that Elle will be better than Sam at anything she puts her mind to because she is just that awesome, can you imagine how awesome at hunting, or at least research for hunting, she would be?

Just the thought of Sam’s pout upon meeting her makes me giggle.

I want this crossover at least 90% more than all the other crossovers.

We shall call it Supernaturally Blonde.

Supernaturally Blonde. Yes. I want it. Elle killing demons with a perky attitude.

YES.

OH MY GOD I DIDN’T KNOW I NEEDED THIS UNTIL NOW

I’M NOT EVEN IN THE SUPERNATURAL FANDOM ANYMORE AND I NEED THIS.

SHE’D SHOW UP TO A HUNT IN PINK KITTY HEELS AND RECITE THE LATIN FOR AN EXORCISM PERFECTLY AND HAVE A BEJEWLED SHOTGUN AND DEAN WOULD HAVE AN ANEURYSM

"You killed a tulpa by yourself?"
"What, like it’s hard?"

Can I ship her with Sam?

Yes.

as long as she doesn’t sleep with him

we all know what happens to the girls Sam sleeps with
