I do random commentary for episodes of shows or movies or whatever I feel lol. You can search for Supernatural, Downton Abbey, Medium, Homeland, True Blood, Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Emma Approved, etc.

Also, check out my LBD Sims. They are up for download in my LBD tag. :P My Sims were reblogged by Hank Green! I died! Matter fact, just check out my Sims 3 tag, period. I like making sim versions of things.

This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more. 
But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.

I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for? 
It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.
Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.

Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson. 
The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.

And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!
Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.
Okay, what else?
Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.
Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.
You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.
And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE. 
If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!

Coolest app I’ve ever downloaded.

"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"

"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"

"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"

SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.

This is honestly the best explanation I have ever seen.

So I’ve seen this post going around in link form, which isn’t super useful to anyone who wants to read it, so I put it up in photo form. Useful for anyone who doesn’t have xkit. :3 Definitely like and reblog the OP, but if it shows up as a link, this helps. :3

I fixed the link for the OP so it works now :)

NEED THIS IN MY LIFE RN!!! THANK YOU TUMBLR!

I suck at cover letters so this is fab

Just a side note that this is great for office-style jobs. Libraries, call centers, hotels, anything “traditional.” For “artistic” work, like music, video, art, or acting, my advice is to go wayyyy shorter. When I’m trying to find someone for a job, I usually only need, “Hi, I’d love to work with you, I know how to do this, this, and this, I have this much experience, and I can contribute this and this to the project. My portfolio/website/reel/links are below, you can reach me here and here, and my resume is attached.” 

Art and media are usually less about you talking and more about you literally showing the person hiring you what you can do. When you have 30 emails to go through for one director (as an example) and you’re tight on time, it’s a real pain to wade through 3 paragraphs per person as well as their reels - which are what you actually care about. 

Librarians - pre-librarians - protolibrarians 

BUT ESSENTIALLY EVERYONE.

Have you been to opencoverletters.com?

It’s a website filled with SUCCESSFUL cover letters submitted by people in  library/information science fields. I’m proud to have two on the site, but there are approximately a gazillion, and they’ve been my best cover-letter-writing tool these past few months.

Hope this helps!
