Headache | Remus Lupin
summary: Trying to complete an essay under the little time span of forty-eight hours was not easy. In an attempt to complete the horrid task, a pounding headache threatens you. Your loving boyfriend however, finds a way to calm you.
a/n: I feel as if I’ve been gone for an extremely long time. I’m sorry! I’ve just had no motivation to write really and I was suffering from Writer’s block and couldn’t conjure up any ideas. I apologise for the shortness of it, and sorry if the quality isn’t as great! It’s currently 11pm at night and I just finished editing this; although I probably made a few typo’s or errors. Enjoy! <33
It was a grand autumn evening. The wind howled and whistled as it gently breezed by the golden leaves of the branchy trees, and the sun rested assuringly amongst the mere clouds. You sat glumly on your bed; your eyes boring into the sheet of gold parchment that lay before you.
An a thousand word page essay was to be written just under the little time span of forty-eight hours, and the horrid pent up feeling of stress ran right through you. Your head ached terribly; as so did every muscle and part of your body.
Your quill tapped against the parchment, awaiting for ideas and thoughts to cloud your mind. It was no use of course; your headache beginning to ripple with such severity that your eyes squeezed shut.
Long-written essays like these were difficult; especially when teachers gave very little time on them. Of course, you came by a headache here and there; but never, had you experienced a headache this dreadful.
You hastily picked up your parchment and paraphernalia and placed them untidily on your desk; before sighing loudly and climbing into the chambers of your bed.
You threw your heavy bedsheets on you; lying in a pathetic slumped heap. Head pounding, muscles aching, and anxiety rippling through you all at once.
By now, the sun had began to set. Dreadfully noisy chatter filled the dorm corridors as students began to perambulate down to dinner. Groaning in annoyance, you dug your fingernails into your temples.
All you wanted to do was disintegrate into the bed; completely isolate yourself from the outside world. It felt as if a quaffle was smashing into your skull with such strong force; your eyes snapped shut, before you quietly sobbed into your pillow.
Why wouldn’t this cursed headache leave you alone? You hadn’t even noticed the door creak open, as you jumped at the gentle contact of a hand resting on your shoulder. “Love?”
The reassuring voice of Remus calmed you down, as your heart slowed it’s pace, and your thoughts were at peace. You let out a lewd hiccup , before turning your body and hugging the boy tightly.
The boy wasted no time to allow his calloused hands to rest on your back; rubbing it soothingly. Your sobs and hiccups diminishing as you felt a surge of relief course through you.
“What’s wrong, talk to me,” Remus asked, after a while of him holding you in his embrace. You turned your head upwards; a slight pound in your skull as a result. “My head hurts,” your words came out slurred, as you were quite tired and lethargic.
Remus pressed a loving kiss to your forehead. “Why don’t we get some medicine, hmm?” You nodded sleepily, before the boy slipped out of the room. God were you lucky to have a boyfriend like Remus.

Üşür YÜREĞİM ......sensizlikten.. Bu koca ŞEHİR sığmaz yüreğime.. Sen yoksun; Ben yokum.. Dersin ya hani... Yalan... SEN YOKSAN.. Dünya yok gözümde.. SEN YOKSAN.. Benliğim yitik olmuştu bu alemde.. VAR olmalısın, VAR olmalısın ki Varlığıma SEBEP olmalısın..
SEN YOKSAN; Dünya da gözümde YOK......
ÖYLE BİR SEVDANIN OMZUNA YASLADIM BAŞIMI,

august 1st, 2021
happy august guys!!
august is one of my favorite months, as it's getting a bit cooler and nature's colors start to change. 🌻
what's also changing is my blog. i'm planning on posting more regularly and switching up my editing a bit. you may have noticed a new profile pic too! (it looks a bit like me if you've ever wondered how do i look like hah)
on the other note, i just hit 1000 followers which is incredible to me!! thank you to all of you!!! ♡♡♡
on the final note, the photos show exactly what i've been up to this month, as i struggled with motivation and low energy levels. but anyway, a good book is always worth the time. 📖

What is the best method to learn language by reading in ur opinion? My level in english is somewhere btween B1 and b2 but I want to be C1 in the end of this year (I hope it is possible), I can speak/write/listen very well but in reading... I think im bad :( I take 13 minutes to read one page from the hobbit
Just read. That's the best method: doing something, anything.
Don't focus on how much it takes you to read a page. Reading improves on its own if you keep reading.
Perhaps the level of the vocabulary is too advanced. Have you tried reading something else? Choose something that you enjoy reading. When i learned English (i learned it through reading) i was reading for at least 6-8 hours daily. I didn't choose this amount as a goal. I was reading fanfiction and because I love to read, i couldn't stop unless it was time to eat or go to sleep.
If your hobby is not reading, think of what you'd enjoy reading (fantasy, love stories, self-development books etc) or think of another hobby which you could improve through reading. (Books about cooking, books about the Japanese mythology, baking, yoga, drawing etc)
You can also ditch the books and read articles, fanfiction, wiki tutorials etc.
Try to make the activity enjoyable and you'll spend time on it. By doing so, you'll improve in no time.
Take care~
