So on Monday my brother asked me to teach him how to crochet so he can make himself a case for his switch. I fully expected him to get frustrated after 10 minutes and I’d have to finish it for him (which isn’t really a problem for me) but he not only persevered but told me he really enjoyed it!
Here’s his final project. I only helped him with the first few rows and sewing on the buttons/attachments. There were a few stitches that were a little bumpy but he did an overall outstanding job in my opinion!!
I’m sorry I haven’t been around lately but since it’s Pride month, I thought I’ll make a small comic for you guys! I decided to practice a new comic layout and it turned out quite well. It’s still up in the air if this will be a mini series, since I am still working on Be my Prom Date, but we’ll see :)
DIFFERENTIATE YOUR SKIN CONCERNS. I know it can be super tempting to just declare that you have “bad skin” and never really look at the root of the problem. I thought I had pimples and acne on oily skin, but it turned out I had closed comodones with dehydrated skin. So it’s suuuuper important to figure out what you’re dealing with.
Change your routine one at a time. Don’t put a pile of new products on your face, because this will shock your skin and make you break out. If you’re getting into a new routine, please take a month to transition into it.
WEAR SUNSCREEN. Idk who you are or what you’re trying to accomplish. Wear fucking sunscreen. Here are a few sunscreens that are tested on their ‘ashiness’. Now you have no excuse.
Layer your skincare thin to thick. Basically, if you have multiple essences, ampoules, serums, etc, always layer them on such that the one that has the most liquid consistency goes on first, and the thickest one last.
DON’T TRY YOUTUBE SKINCARE HACKS without thoroughly researching about them. Don’t put lemon and baking soda on your face because some beauty guru did. Please actually research these things before irritating/potentially scarring your skin.
Coconut oil can clog pores. If you suffer from this, try eliminating it to see how your skin reacts.
If you pop a particularly nasty pimple, slap a bandaid over it. Yes, people are going to ask if you walked into a door, but your skin will heal faster (without that unwanted pimple comeback) and with minimal scarring.
Alright, please comment and let me know if there’s anything specific you want me to address in the following posts of the series.
“The fan reaction to this show has been like massive, I mean, people are obsessed with it. I told you, like my entire office every Wednesday is like “Oh, it’s The Handmaid’s Tale day!” I mean, have you
started to noticed, you know, because you were on a show that had a very, very, very, rabid fan base and still does to this day in a lot of ways. Have you noticed like a wavering in the amount of people coming up to you now and being like “Serena Joy is the worst. I love you”? Just like that – it’s more Handmaid’s Tale now that people are getting into it?” [▶]
No but really, I appreciate you all very very very very much and would like to gather you into one giant group hug unless you prefer not to touch in which case I will blow kisses at you from a respectful distance!
Thank you for putting up with my general nonsense and infrequent posting and rambling tags and sporadic screaming about my OC. If you ever want to talk, message me. If you ever want to ask me anything at all, my asks are open. If you ever want to tell me about your OC or share something you’ve made or something you love, please submit it. I am so grateful to have a space on your dash and I luh you guys. <3
Fingers crossed for a giveaway when our merry band hits 250! …Even though I only write some, draw less, and mostly just scream into the void about Solas.
