How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.

have you ever sat with your friends and just known that you’re the least important friend in the group and you feel like it wouldn’t make a difference whether you were there or not
my friends sister was telling me about how in highschool a guy tried to take a picture up her skirt as she was walking up stairs and she saw, grabbed his phone, broke it in half, and handed it back to him and said “you can tell your mom why your phones broken”
**TRIGGER WARNING: THIS IS A DANGEROUS STAGE OF OBSESSIVE LOVE DISORDER. THIS SCENE INVOLVES THE LISTENER BEING PSYCHOLOGICALLY ABUSED WITH A BLINDFOLD. PLEASE BE WARY ABOUT THIS SHOULD YOU LISTEN.
But if you do listen… you should listen to this with headphones… kay?**
You all asked for it. Since we got funded for Seduce Me, I was able to take some time and do this on top of some commissions xD.
My reason for my madness: Levi, in my deep opinion, is a psychological yandere, kind of like Marco. However, Levi probably WOULD hurt you physically at final stage, so we’re not gunna take him there, kay? <3
Once again, BIG THANKS TO CODY <3
Corporal Levi - Cody (asklevivoice)
Script/Mix by Michaela Laws
Enjoy~~~ (Follow along with the audio with YOUR script~)
YOUR SITUATION: After the first time you were called into Levi’s officer, you’ve been trying to be good… sadly, Levi doesn’t think so and Drags you to his room for a punishment.
(You are walking to your dorm room after a long day. However, Levi comes up and grabs your hand, dragging you behind him in the opposite direction. Before you can speak, he speaks first.) Keep your mouth shut. I need to speak to you alone. We’re going to my room. (You start to ask why, but he turns to you with a deadly glare.) What did I just say? (You decide to keep quiet. Levi continues to lead you to his room. He pushes you in and close/locks the door, leaving you trapped with him.)
You must really want me to lock you up in here, don’t you? (You ask what he means.) And you’re still playing innocent. You either must be bad at following directions or you’re just begging me to punish you. Which is it? (You tell him you don’t know what he’s talking about! You’ve done nothing!!)
First you were friendly with Jaeger, now you’re cozy with Kirschtein. I’ve seen how he looks at you and how he tries to get close to you. You think I haven’t noticed your little gaze at him, too? I was being nice with my last warning, but now I don’t think I’ll be as nice this time.
(You see him pull a large black cloth out of his pocket. In fear, you ask what it is.) What do you think it is? It’s a blindfold. We’re gunna play a little game of trust. I’m going to put this on you and you’re going to have to trust me. Then you’ll understand how I feel when you disobey my trust. Now.. don’t move. (You have no choice. You stand still as he comes near you and ties the blindfold around your head over your eyes.) This is an order: Do not take off the blindfold no matter what. When this game is over, I will take it off for you.
(You are left in the dark, only able to hear Levi’s footsteps. After a small pause, you hear a sudden kick on wood, as Levi kicks his dresser hard.)
Everytime you look at one of those filthy pigs, I get so angry. Why give them your attention when all they want to do is roll you in the dirt? That’s all they want.
(You hear him move away from the dresser and try to follow where he’s going before suddenly hearing an almost explosive glass shatter. Levi has broken his mirror.)
Can’t you see I’m trying to protect you? When I tell you to ignore them, it’s for your own good. I care for you more than anyone in the legion— no. On this God forsaken planet. Why would you hurt my trust?
(Levi suddenly walks up and talks into your ear, holding you to him to make sure you don’t move from him.)
You do love me, right? (You say yes, earning a soft sigh.) Then I’ll warn you one. last. time…
STAY. AWAY. FROM THEM.
Are we clear? (You say Yessir like the good girlfriend cadet you are…) Good. (Levi gently kisses you, sealing your lips from making any more noise.)
do you ever stop and realize that people probably discuss you from time to time when you aren’t around to witness it
not even in a specifically positive or negative way just like
people mention you, or think of you, you occur to people sometimes
thats the most unnerving thing that i can think of, thats so weird, that i exist to people when im not even interacting with them
