How MBTI Types Approach Rules →

lukemerren:

ENTJ: I make the rules.
ESTJ: I’ve written down the rules and made copies for everyone.
ESFJ: I’ve bent over backwards to fulfill all the rules.
ENFJ: Rules are great – they help us be better people.
INTJ: I’ve discovered all the inconsistencies with the rules and therefore consider them void.
INFJ: These rules are not benefiting me. I’m making up my own rules.
ISTJ: I’ve completed everything according to the rules.
ISFJ: These rules suck!!! *goes along with the rules*
ENFP: Ooops! I didn’t realize there were rules!
ENTP: I’ve discovered these rules are not actually fulfilling their purpose, let me explain why.
ESFP: Is there a fine for breaking the rules? I’ll just pay that.
ESTP: Watch me break the rules!!!!!
INTP: I’ve figured out a way to bend each rule.
ISTP: These rules are important for others, and if I feel like it I might follow along.
ISFP: I’m breaking all the rules, but it’s okay because I don’t think anyone noticed.
INFP: Completely unaware that rules exist, worried about why everyone seems so stressed.

Can I kill Duncan again, or should I save it as a draft and let somebody else have some fun for a while?

So, yeah, I killed Duncan

In which the exiled heir makes use of his access to bulk bags of cinnamon, with disastrous results.

In response to this post.

Adjusting to life in Australia had been tougher than Duncan expected. In his first weeks in the sleepy backwater that was Mollymook, a local barfly had declared him to be a septic tank. Duncan was confused, wondering if he was wearing the scent of one of Lilly’s soiled diapers — no, her ‘nappies’. His confusion was not lessened when the man responded to his befuddlement with the words “poetry not your strong suit mate?”

LMFAO!

As Richard Wicker, he became a minor sensation, a mysterious masked man who was a hit with the comments section and the reddit crowd thanks to his impassioned three-minute defence of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines.

So wrong!  So right!

Yeah, that never happened. But I’d like it to! Now that school is out, maybe we can finally do this thing? Red…

If we’re planning sometime in August…can we do Aug 8th, 9th, or the 10th (since I’m going to be in the city for practically that whole week)? Lol. I don’t want to make an extra trip from NYC to LI, that’s why :P. 

Did not renew the lease to my apartment in Queens. Just going to commute back and forth from LI to NYC whenever a project needs me. 

I’ve been there, doing the LI commute. Not positive I’ll be in town that weekend though. We’re going to Florida (I’m from there) for a few weeks in the middle of August.

What does everybody else say?

Back when tickets for the LIRR were probably like $7 or so lol. Now they’re $30 round trip from my very EASTERN part of LI. 

If we’re doing early evening on Aug 2nd, I’m sure I could still make it there regardless. Except, I’ll probably just drive my car and find a parking space around where I used to have my apartment :P. 

People have to be absolutely suicidal to drive into NYC…..I will under no circumstances do that EVER in my life when we have the LIRR and the subways. 

Park a car in one of the boroughs/quiet neighborhood? That I can do… 

OMG you suuuuck! It was NOT $7 when I rode the LIRR. I’m not 60!

And I drive in NYC every day. It’s crazy, but it varies by neighborhood. Brooklyn has the meanest drivers. And the ones in Harlem drive like they’re all a little stoned (spoiler alert: they are).

Haha I didn’t mean to say you were THAT old :P. It’s just my dad was telling how cheap LIRR tickets were back in the day (like the 90s…because that was when they moved here from Chicago, IL). 

I think he either said they were $7 or $14…some price pretty low. 

But then again, I can also remember gas being like 99 cents when I was a wee baby!!

I was still in high school and college in the 90’s :(

Where the hell did you live that gas was 99cents/gallon?! It cost more than that when I was in high school in Florida.

Butting in because I remember gas being 87 cents when I first learned to drive in the mid-90’s in Ohio.

Same.  I remember a gas station in Chesterland (Ohio) that always had it for 99 cents/gallon.  Don’t remember it ever being lower than that.

Writing Tips: Verbs

thepenspointofview:

Many people believe that adjectives, adverbs and even nouns, are the way to quickly add imagery to a story, but actually, if done excessively, it bogs the story down. The real type of word you should focus your attention on is verbs.

Why should I avoid nouns? 

It’s not so much that you should avoid nouns as much as you should avoid making nouns when they aren’t needed. For instance, don’t say “This is an improvement of my classmate’s work,” say: “This improves my classmate’s work.” As you can see, the latter sentence is simpler and less bulky. 

Why should I avoid adverbs? 

When used excessively, you really begin to hack away at the details you could have in your story. If you just say, “He nodded slowly,” it’s much less description than “He moved his head like a fishing lure, looking to the ground, and then back to her judging eyes.” You just need to be careful. Think about if you need more imagery, or if your piece is fine without another sentence or two. 

Why should I avoid adjectives? 

Some adjectives are totally fine. There is nothing wrong with saying “The blonde beauty leaps across the shiny stage.”  However, there is something wrong when a sentence is constructed like, “The shiny, gray, new sword was held by the daring, bold hero.” When overdone, it bogs down the story. Sometimes, the smaller details are better left unsaid. After all, sometimes readers like having their own room for head-canons! 

What’s the big deal about verbs?

Verbs, believe it or not, do more than state an action. Verbs are also powerhouses of description. For example, lets go back to the first sentence I used in the adjectives section. While there is nothing wrong with “The blonde beauty leaps across the shiny stage,” you could also say “The blonde beauty leaps across the stage, twirling across the shimmering stage.” Notice how the verbs drag you into the scene, pull you closer, and have a stronger effect? Looking at how the words “shiny” and “shimmering” offer different levels of imagery is something that can be said with several different verbs. Verbs often pack a stronger punch, and also carry motion and action even in the dullest of scenarios.

Shut up and dance.

Love how this was shot.

I love this scene so much. This might be my favourite solo Veronica scene in the movie.

Yup. Here she’s just being Veronica and she’s owning it. She’s totally in her element and that just comes through in her every movement.

She also looks amazing here. I may have the tiniest girl crush on her in this moment. She’s predatory and I have to admit….that’s hot. I think if Logan were here and saw her like this, he’d have dragged her of to a corner, because just…look at her.

Their faces are…. so open, so sweet, so smitten. So unlike Logan and Veronica up to this point in the season. No psychotic jackass or vengeful warrior here, just teenagers on the cusp of love
