This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.
That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.
This is why we download.

Hey guys! I know there are several of you on here who like to cause your characters pain - physically and emotionally - so here’s a chart that can help you do so logically.
*please note that symptoms such as vomiting can also be induced by severe pain
In my experience, RPers and Writers alike enjoy one thing: Making characters suffer. This little guide is supposed to help you with keeping injuries and the First Aid - in case you want to patch your character back together - realistic.
I am no medical professional, but I dare say I picked up a thing or two during my First Aid school-medic training ;)
Under read more for length! Also, trigger warnings for blood, I suppose?
This’ll cover the basics, such as financial expectation, rental history, what to bring for the application process, etc.
I posted last week asking people if they knew of some good resources for male victims of sexual assault. Here is the list people came up with:

I’ve been waiting for this for ages.
I have someone staying in my hotel tonight that made me think that this would be worth sharing here.
If you are running away/trying to hide from someone that is frightening, abusing, harassing you, and you find yourself staying in a hotel to avoid being found, there’s an extra precaution you can take.
When you check in, ask the front desk clerk to put you as “Unlisted”. They’ll know what you’re talking about. What this means is that as far as anyone other than you and the front desk clerks are concerned, you’re not there. If someone tries to call for you and your room, “I’m sorry. I don’t have anyone registered under that name.” Same thing goes for it someone shows up at the desk. “Unlisted” means you’re untouchable.
Please, please, if you find yourself in trouble and seeking refuge in a hotel, do this. It’s really quick, easy, and painless for the front desk clerk to do, and they are not going to judge you for it.
As a hotel worker, no. Sorry. “Unlisted” is not some secret passcode. And your average hotel clerk will have no idea what you’re talking about.
Just tell them that you don’t want anyone to know that you’re there. It’ll go into their notes and they will try their best. BUT. Ask when their shift change is, so you can call and repeat yourself to the next shift worker, because they might not absorb those notes.
Going to add a little more:
I am NOT ALLOWED to leave your name off my listing of who is in what room. I have to SEE YOUR ID and have you sign that name, and only that name. That list is kept in several places, which I won’t list here but if your pursuer has ever worked in ANY hotel, he’ll know where to look for them. These places are NOT LOCKED UP because we have to access them multiple times a shift sometimes with no notice, and guests (like you!) are never patient enough to wait for us to go get something out of a safe so they can check out or whatever. These lists are not in the public view. But they are not 100% protected either. Even in a very high end hotel, which mine is.
All that said, if you ask, I CAN put a false name on your folio. Then THAT name goes onto that list, and that’s safer for you. We will have to note WHY we are using a false name (give as little detail as you want), and we will STILL have to have your real name+notes in the computer and on your credit card authorization slip.
Also, while this will of course vary from hotel to hotel:
If you come in and say that you need a room and it’s an emergency, you’re being followed, whatever, I STILL have to put you through the steps of checking in, and I STILL have to have either a credit card, or cash in the entire amount plus a generous deposit. I’m a desk clerk. I don’t have the authority to put you in a room without going through the procedure. It’s a well-known SCAM to get free rooms that we got warned about in training, and if no obvious follower turned up, I would be fired on the spot. My livelihood is MY safety, and I have to put my own oxygen mask on first. You CAN circumvent this if you are there in the early afternoon by asking for a manager. Just be aware that they usually go home by three.
I know I just reblogged the original post, but I deleted it and reblogged with new info. Don’t want to misinform my followers.
