march-20th

I debated posting this, but I randomly just saw someone speaking of “people born with talent”, and not being good themselves and I just felt like interfering here. I don’t believe in people “born with talent” per say. I think there’s always that percentage of innate talent, but for the rest, you just have to work. A lot. And if you don’t have that innate talent, you just have to work harder, but it doesn’t mean you can’t achieve it. Just don’t do nothing because you think you can’t, that is a waste of improving time, and I wasted years like this.

Here’s a little example of how I changed my style quite a lot during the years. That first drawing there is dated march 20th, 2005. That is 10 years ago. I had my manga phase like a lot of people.

Moving on to the second set, made in april 2012. I was then in my 2nd year of animation at school, barely starting to explore styles and trying to find my own.

The third one was a few months after I finished school, october 2013. Style evolved, I thought I found mine, but even if I was done with school, this was just the beginning.

Which leads us to that last set, april 2015. I can only hope that in a year, I’ll have drawn enough that I’ll go back to it and think “what the hell is that”. This is half a lesson to myself too, but just never stop practicing and exploring. There’ll never be an end to improvement, even after 50 years of doing something.

TL;DR: Keep drawing kids (or whatever else it is you want to do)~

Back in August, before I even applied to study abroad, I woke up at 3:55am before work to buy tickets for an All Time Low show in London. Tickets went on sale at 9am London time, which was 4am at home, and I couldn’t risk tickets being sold out. Turns out they didn’t sell out for a couple days so I could’ve slept the extra couple hours before work but whatever.

Flash forward 7 months, I applied and was accepted to study in London and was ending my third month here. The concert was March 20th and it was by far the best show of theirs that I’ve seen. I so would have regretted it if I was in London and missed them. Waking up at 4am was so beyond worth it.

Hey guys listen up for a second

So March 20th is going to be a big freaking deal. Not only is it the spring Equinox, it’s also a new moon, a super moon, and a solar eclipse. Now that’s some mighty strong forces for change and rebirth and it’d be a shame if we didn’t take advantage of it.

So here’s what I’m proposing to all my fellow witches out there: let’s ban together. Think about it. All of us connecting our power through a rune sigil at the height of the solar eclipse and drawing on not only the forces at work, but also each other’s strength to make petitions. Think of how amazing it would be! A massive circle of witches hand in hand worldwide lending our power to one another to help everyone’s desires come true.

So who’s with me? Like or reblog this if you’re interested, and I’ll have more details about the how’s and when’s later. Come on guys. Let’s do this.

On March 20 – same date as the 2015 March equinox – the moon turns new only 14 hours after reaching lunar perigee – moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit. Thus this moon is a supermoon – at the new phase – not visible in our sky, but having a larger-than-average effect on Earth’s oceans. Plus this new supermoon swings right in front of the equinox sun on March 20, so that the moon’s shadow falls on parts of Earth. Only those along that path – at high northern latitudes, near Greenland and Iceland will see the total eclipse. (Also the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.) Happy Spring!

Ostara: Setting up your Altar

Ostara is the time where many choose to celebrate the balance of light and dark. It’s the time to celebrate new life and rebirth…not only a physical renewal but spiritual and mental. 


Colors

Just look outside, all those pastel colors will be great on your altar. 

  • Lavender
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Pink 
  • Blue

You can decorate your altar just with the colors of Ostara. Such as a pale or light green altar cloth with maybe some blue and pink draped along with it. Candles can be pink or maybe even yellow.


The Balance of the Equinox 

Altar decorations can reflect the theme of the Sabbat. Ostara is a time of balance between light and dark. Symbols of polarity can be used to decorate the Altar. God and Goddess, white and black candle, a sun and moon, a yin/yang symbol, etc…


New Life

Ostara is a time of new growth and life.

Add potted plants such as new crocuses, daffodils, lilies, and other magical spring flowers. 

This is the time of year when animals are bringing forth new life too. Put a basket of eggs on your Altar. Add a chalice of milk or honey.

Don’t forget Ostara is on March 20th, 2015.

Happy Ostara! Happy First Day of Spring!

Instead of setting up my Altar this Ostara (it’s set up but I’m not worshiping/honoring/praying) I am doing a lot of spring cleaning. It’s somewhat nice enough to open one or two windows and air out the house and rearrange some furniture before it becomes too unbearably hot. A weekend full of cleaning, maybe I can coax some brownies into the house. 

Here’s to wishing you a very happy and blessed Ostara. Also, a shout out to those who are getting married this Ostara, I wish you many lovely years with your significant other.
