So I’m doing a teen program for work involving New Years resolutions. Basically, teens are given sticky notes to write out one of their resolutions for the new year and then post it on a board where a bunch of others will be up.
As a hand out, I want to make a list of resolutions and say “Match up the Resolution to the character!” And pull characters from popular books teens are reading and TV shows teens are watching. The problem is I’m like 28 and the only teens I actually know are you guys on tumblr! What’s cool and hip these days? Who is a main character that would be easily recognized and what’s a resolution they have?
Reblog and add your own! (Or send me an ask or use the reply feature) Here are my examples:
Katniss Everdeen – “I will only use my bow to hunt animals, not people.”
The Doctor – “I will keep better track of my Companions”
(you can give either of these characters a different one, in case you’re more creative than I am XD)
Is it wrong that I suddenly want a job at one of the Smithsonian Libraries just because the tumblr account for the Smithsounian Libraries is so great?
I mean, look, this comes from their About page:
We <3 tumblr, mostly because it’s the sassiest of all the social media platforms.
And the captions on all their posts are highly amusing. I have many years of library and blogging experience. Pick me, pick me! *waves hand*
[Supernatural Advent - December 10]
"I’ve gotta get out of here for a while, man." Dean said over the phone, standing outside his apartment. He was stressed, he was tired, it was finals season and he had three papers left to write. About seven too many people were assholes to him at work and he was just done with it all. He needed a break.
"I’m on my way," Cas said back and Dean could hear the roar of his bike before the other man hung up.
The wind was cold, snow covered the ground and Dean hugged his coat a little closer to his chest. His hat and scarf helped keep the chill out a little, but not as well as he’d like. Luckily, it didn’t take Cas long to get to the apartment, they both lived fairly near to each other, which wasn’t far from campus.
Cas, sitting on his bike, looked great with his black jacket and jeans. He would have looked tough if it weren’t for the festive blue scarf and red hat. It brought a smile to Dean’s face as he hurried down the steps and threw a leg over the bike, sitting behind his boyfriend.
"Hey, long day?" Cas asked, half turning around on his seat.
"The longest." Dean slung an arm over Cas’s shoulders and tugged him back until he was pressed to Dean’s chest.
"I’ve got just what you need." He lifted one hand to Dean’s cheek and tilted his head to press a kiss to Dean’s lips. Cas’s lips were warm, his hand was warm, his whole body was warm and Dean drank it in.
Squeezing his arm a little tighter around Cas, Dean happily returned the kiss, letting his eyes fall shut. This was peace, this was happiness. Everything else melted away like snow in early spring, leaving nothing but Cas.
When the kiss ended and he pulled away, Cas smiled and snagged Dean’s hand, pulling it up to rest on his hip. “Wanna ride?”
Dean crooked a smile and slid his hand forward, wrapping his arm around Cas’s waist. “You know how I like to ride…”
Cas looked down and laughed, just the faintest blush touching his cheeks. But Dean noticed it, he always noticed when he made Cas blush, and always knew he had because of the way Cas turned away to try and hide it. Moving his hands to the bike’s handlebars, Cas revved his engine and Dean lifted his feet onto the rear footrests.
"Hang on," Cas said, though he didn’t need to. Dean was already pressed firmly to Cas’s back and tempted to tease kisses along Cas’s neck, nosing his scarf out of the way.
They took off, and Dean didn’t care where they were going. All that mattered was that he was with Cas now and could forget his stresses for just a while. Finals would be over soon and the Christmas holiday would begin. Then he could spend his time lazing around in a warm bed with Cas, only having to worry about whether he was going to fake sick to get out of work and steal a few more hours with his boyfriend. That made everything worthwhile.
THANK YOU~ I’m really pleased with them~
I’m watching The Runway Job…its finals week so i’m re-watching Leverage
Always a good one! I love Eliot in guyliner. XD
I’m making my friend watch the show and she’s on season 2 now, so I’m rewatching certain favorite episodes along the way, too.
I forgot earlier too. Don’t cry though, there’s always Leverage. Also, you still have to tell me ALL THE THINGS about Kain and Raziel.
I’m gluing hats and buttons on snowmen right now… WHILE WATCHING LEVERAGE. The Bottle Job. :)
It’s great because it’s the Bottle Episode… And it’s called The Bottle Job. More reasons to love Leverage.
