10 minutes max

If you guys need even more proof that Lena is whipped, take it from a business major who learns daily about the life of a CEO. 

CEOs of any company, but especially a large one like L-Corp are extremely busy. We (or at least I) assume that L-Corp most likely operates in the tech industry, maybe manufacturing too, but don’t know for sure. But the tech industry is highly competitive and fast paced. The time of a CEO is extremely valuable to a company. 

Lena is the type of person who takes her job seriously. She is dedicated to rebranding and repositioning L-Corp, separating it from the evil of Luthor Corp. Hence most of her time is going to be spent strategizing how to do that. She doesn’t focus on small details like hiring and firing of employees (unless it’s like C-suite levels executives or other high ranking people), budgeting, marketing strategies, financial plans, etc. She will most likely delegate that to the CMO, CFO, COO, etc. She’s going to be making business deals, hence all of her meetings, listening to business pitches from R&D as well as other executives, attending board meetings to learn about the state of the company, etc. I was in my business to business marketing class last night and my professor was basically like “The CEO of a company got where they are because they know how to manage their time effectively, they time slice. If you’re pitching an idea to your CEO, you’ll have 10-15 minutes max. Maybe an hour if you’re good. That’s it.” Lena’s time is extremely valuable. 

The fact that she takes time out of her day to meet with Kara on social visits, takes time out of her day (most likely at least an hour or two) to meet Kara at CatCo to go out to lunch at some new Kombucha place, randomly drops by Kara’s apartment and her place of work to ask for a favor that she could have either called or asked Jess to contact Kara for her, spends her evenings when she could be working on her company, trying to help Kara find a bunch of missing aliens and her own mother is a testament of how much she actually cares for Kara. Even in just a platonic sort of way. In fact, I think it’s much more compelling if it is platonic. 

Also consider that when Kara forgot about their lunch outing, she wasn’t angry or annoyed in the slightest that Kara forgot. She was completely understanding and even offered to help her friend. As a CEO, when your time is that valuable, it would be completely understandable if Lena was even the least bit frustrated that Kara forgot. But she wasn’t. And we all know that they probably just ended up rescheduling and causing Lena to rearrange at least a couple of meetings to spend time with Kara.

So in short, Lena is whipped as fuck. 

ok but what if malec get married on the anniversary of their first kiss? “exactly 5 years ago i almost got married,,, to a woman!” *the crowd gasps* “shocking, i know! but then this man stormed in all like ‘sorry am i late to the party?’, told my mum to fuck off and gave me the chance to make the best choice i ever made in my entire life. to choose myself. to choose love. to choose this handsome man right here. i am a lucky man, i know!” *laughs* “of course, lydia is a lovely woman and im glad she’s happy with her wife lindsay now but she wasn’t really,,, my type, to say the least. but this man is. Absolutely. my type. and i wanna spend the rest of my life with him. i know some of you might be wondering why we’re even getting married since according to my blonde brother jace here we’re 'already a disgustingly cute old-married couple that is raising 83727 kids together anyways’” *everyone laughs* “but still,,, i wanna make it official. i want everyone to be the witness of this. to witness how much i love this man. also, i really wanna be able to legally call him my husband, so there’s that”*everyone has put their hands on their hearts in awe & is smiling*

Perfectionism destroys creativity and productivity.

If you get so wrapped up in being perfect, whether it be drawing or writing or what-have-you, you will fail because you never actually started

You don’t know how it’s going to be proper cause you’ve never tested the idea, that’s why things like ‘first drafts’ and ‘thumbnails’ and all these other terms exist but they all mean the same thing,
     ‘putting the idea down knowing it’s going to suck but learning from it.’

It takes all of 10 minutes max to get the idea down and then taking notes on what works, what doesn’t what to change what you need to practice. Anyone that I ever did red lines (or ‘corrections’) will tell you I take notes like crazy on what feels wrong and what needs to change, putting down red lines where a better placement might be or better measurements. Because you learn more from mistakes than you do from succeeding. 
But let me tell you the best and only way to succeed

the moment that you have it on paper, you’ve won.

It’s there, you did it. You beat the hardest part even if you think it’s shitty, that doesn’t matter because you’ve done it and I am proud of you. We all start somewhere, and everything that’s real has a messy beginning.

Now go! Go make stories/art/music/sculptures! be artistic, be productive!


Summary: You tag along on a family vacation with Shawn and his family and thing get a little steamy.

Requested: Yes

Shawn laughed at something his sister said as we exited the hotel elevator, the sound bringing a smile to my face. After a month of touring and a few weeks of recording, Shawn’s management has given him some time off. So, we are in Florida with Shawn younger sister and his parents.

He seems really happy and relaxed. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen him like that. Shawn interlaced his hand with mine, slightly startling me. I look up to find his concerned brown eyes looking down on me. I gave him a smile as Aaliyah bounded down the hallway and into the room she shared with her parents.

I got the card key to the room Shawn and I shared and swiped it, opening the door. Shawn and I made our way into the room, closing the door behind us. I started to make my way to the bathroom when Shawn pulled me close.

“Hey, you ok?” He asked our hands still interlaced. His brown eyes looked into mine full of concern. I nodded my head.  

“Yeah, why wouldn’t I be?”Shawn shrugged.

“I don’t know. You just seemed distant.”

“I was just thinking.” I explained.

“About what?”

“About you. It’s interesting watching you interact with your family. Watching you relax.” I explained. Shawn gave me a confused look. “There’s just different sides of you. There’s the professional work Shawn and then there’s the older brother and son Shawn.”

“Which one do you like?” He asked with a smile. I smiled back.

“I like both of them.” I whispered, giving him a peck on the lips. I started to make my way to the bathroom again when Shawn wrapped his arms around my waist and placed his lips on mine. I started to kiss back as his arms tightened around my waist. I wrapped my arms around his neck as he deepens the kiss. The kiss was slow and full of passion. I let out a moan as Shawn pressed me up against the nearest wall. I ran my hands through his hair, slightly tugging at it, causing him to moan.

I wrapped my legs around his torso as he picked me up and made his way to the bedroom without breaking the kiss. Once we got there, he laid me down gently and started to attack my neck with kisses. I closed my eyes, enjoying the feeling of his lips on me. I bit down on my bottom lip as he grazed over my soft spot.

“Shawn,” I panted. “We can’t. Your family’s in the next room.”

“I guess we’ll have to be quiet then.” He whispered in my ear, turning me on. I felt his hands travel down my body until he got to the waistline of my pants. I let out a shiver as his hands traveled down my stomach. He started unzipping my pants, sliding them off of me until I was in my underwear. His eyes racked my body as he dragged his tongue over his bottom lip.

He started to rub me slowly through my underwear, causing me to throw my head back against the pillow. I bit down hard on my bottom lip, trying to hold back a moan. Shawn started to rub me faster, creating more pleasure. I gripped the comforter under me as I tried to hold back my moans. He knows what he’s doing to me. Finally, I couldn’t take anymore and Shawn knew that when he crashed his lips against mine, swallowing the moans that escaped my lips.  

“Shawn…Baby, no teasing.” I breathed as I started to place kisses down his neck. I heard his breathing hitch as I got closer to his soft spot. I nibbled softly at his ear, kissing the spot right under it after, driving him crazy.

“Screw it.” He mumbled under his breath as he moved my underwear to the side, pumping his finger in and out of me at a steady pace. I closed my eyes and let out a shutter. I arched my back, biting on my lip so hard I’m surprised I didn’t draw blood. Shawn placed his lips back on mine, pumping his finger faster. I left out a soft whimper, biting down on his bottom lip. He let out a grunt as he curled his finger inside me. The pleasure was starting to become overwhelming.

I quickly grabbed the nearest pillow, breaking the kiss. Shawn let out a hiss. I placed the pillow over my mouth, unable to hold in my moans. Once my high washed over me I removed the pillow, still panting.

“You bit me.” He says, smirking as he wipes the blood off his bottom lip.  

“Sorry.” I pant. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. Shawn got up and answered it.

“What happened to you lip?” I hear Shawn’s mother ask. I can feel my cheek turning red.

“Oh, I tripped…over my guitar on the way in. Y/N was helping me clean it up.” Shawn lied.

“Oh. Well, I came to ask if you and Y/N would like to come have dinner with your sister, your father and I?

“Um, yeah. We’ll meet you there.” He said closing the door. He made his way back to me and I smiled.

“How long do you think we have?” I asked.

“10 minutes max before she comes and asks what’s taking so long.” Shawn replied flopping on the bed next to me.

“Good. I only need 5.” I said, placing my lips on his.

He’s a great guy and a good laugh. Last week we had an event to promote the event in Austria and at one point we were laughing so much I was almost crying! It was really intense, it’s a good relationship. Of course, on the track you try to beat each other I think that’s pretty normal, but off track we can be good mates as well, so that’s important.

So I’m really wanting to explore the astral plane. My issue? I have no idea 😐 when I get comfortable and start to meditate, I can keep it up for 10 minutes max and then my brain either 1. Starts to go crazy with all my creative thought processes, or 2. I fall asleep. How do you guys get to the spiritual realm? How you meet other entities? Tell me your secrets please! I’m so sad and lonely..

I was about to sleep but then you said you're gonna upload an animatic any second so here i am

gimme max 10 minutes 

some random iwaoimatsuhanas
  • oikawa loves taking baths!! even more so if one of his bfs are with him. they’re not into baths as much as oikawa tho and prefer showers but anything that makes him happy. oikawa has a huge collection of bath bombs and bath salts that he loves to use
  • iwa is about quick showers- 10 minutes max. he likes to save water and he never really understood people who took like 30 minutes in there. side eyes hanamaki. a certain someone, however, has a shower sex kink (side eyes hanamaki again) and sometimes iwa likes to indulge them
  • don’t ever let hanamaki shower without supervision. he will be there for hours (his record was 3 hours- “3 fricking hours takahiro,” “uhm?? excuse u?? it was only 2 hours and 47 minutes, thank u very much”). there’s even a house rule that under no circumstance is hanamaki allowed to shower when nobody else is home. so yes. pls keep ur takahiro under close supervision.
  • no one likes to shower with matsukawa because his showers are fucking 800°. whenever he exits the bathroom his skin’s always flushed red from the hot water and u can see all the steam escape and he- quote unquote- “looks like a demon from some scifi horror shit making his grand entrance into the land of the living”
  • before they started dating hanamaki used to be a camboy (it helped lots with his self-esteem) but then he stopped bc he felt his boyfriend wouldn’t like it. they actually don’t really mind tho and were fine with whatever made him happy but he still stopped
  • omg THE PET NAMES U GUYS. THE PET NAMES. u can bet!! hanamaki’s sweet ass!! that iwa has called everyone babe at least once!!! and it makes everyone absolutely melt. altho he usually reserves this for oikawa b/c matsuhana like to make fun of him for it ww
  • u know those popsicles u can get that split into two? oikawa hates those b/c mattsun and iwa always fight over who gets to split theirs with hanamaki (altho they only do this to get a rise out of oikawa ww. hanamaki also likes to add fuel to the fire. “oh what /ever/ am i supposed to do, how could i possibly choose between two hot men,” etc, etc). usually it’ll be mattsun who gives in and splits his with oikawa because he’s weak to oikawa’s pouty face ww more so than he’d like to admit www
  • oikawa and hanamaki sometimes get into heated arguments about?? the dumbest shit??? like iwa or matsu would be chilling in the bedroom or sth and all u hear from the living room is shit like “u call that spirit fingers? watch THIS” “those aren’t jazz hands, THESE are jazz hands”
  • yea
  • iwa walked in on this conversation, actually.. when hanamaki heard him come in he said “come on hajime, give me a-” quickly turning to him with that stupid look on his face and continuing- “jazz hand here” he never regretted his choice in boyfriends moreso than that point in time (that’s a lie)

anonymous asked:

How did you get good at 3d modeling? I've tried sometimes and it always came out wrong or I just couldn't do it.. Do you have any good tutorials you recommend?

All you need is practice, friend! I’m even struggling with certain parts to model, that’s why I usually do model practices, where I look at clothes, shoes and accessories and try to replicate them. I also practice making heads and other body parts before (or during) making a full model.

As for tutorials, I’ll link you to all the ones I’ve used or kept with me. I’ve made a few tutorials and am currently making a hair tutorial, so I’ll link you to that too!

* = Channels and users I highly suggest you follow or go through their other stuff for tips and tricks

anonymous asked:

i'm having an internal dilemma- who'd be more clingy alec or magnus? at first i thought magnus bc magnus is very outgoing but then again like once alec gets comfortable he's super loyal like he hugs izzy all the time help

They both are high up on the clinginess scale, but Magnus is definitely the clingiest. No doubt. I think it’s a universally accepted truth among the fandom that he is Weak when it comes to Alec. Lets discuss

- Whenever I think of magnus wanting Alec’s attention, I think of a pet cat annoyed at being ignored. really, imagine him purposely stepping on Alec’s heels when theyre walking together because alec has gone more than 10 seconds without looking at him, or draping himself over alec like he’s liquid; hanging off alec’s back when alec is making coffee and nuzzling into the warmth of his neck, and laying across alec’s lap on the couch and sighing loudly when alec ignores him because he cares about the book he’s reading more (truthfully alec is so immersed in the book he doesn’t even notice magnus trying to get his attention, but magnus likes to add a dramatic flair to his narrative)

- “Oh? So you’re just that friendly with everybody, is that it?”

- I mean, magnus has been clingy since the very beginning.

- Sitting with alec all through the night and into the morning the first time he healed him (dude that was the second time he ever interacted w alec hes in way too Deep)

- Mr. I’m-The High-Warlock-Of-Brooklyn-Who-Dares-Disturb-Me doing millions of things for free and protecting alec and his friends and family and fighting in a war that has nothing to do with him, just to see alec

- “Still I pictured having you for fifty, sixty more years. I thought I might be ready then to let you go. But it’s you, and I realize now that I won’t be any more ready to lose you then than I am right now. Which is not at all.” Sure this is heartbreaking and all but…, clingy much?? C’mon dude that’s gay

- This isn’t exactly an attribution to his clinginess but magnus is always so proud of alec for everything he does, whether its getting an amazing shot off his bow or making pancakes. He follows alec around with fan signs and applauses alec every time he breathes

- When he misses alec (24/7) he just talks about him. To anyone. His cat. Tessa. Jem. Isabelle. An annoyed client. A nosy demon. eventually ragnor and raphael both learn alec’s schedule so they know to ignore magnus’s calls when alec isn’t home

- It’s an official rule that alec kiss magnus the second he gets home

- When theyre not together (and sometimes when alec’s only a room apart from him) magnus texts alec constantly. Especially when alec’s working. Alec ignores the messages until he’s done with work, and then he reads through all of them, smiling at all of the where are you’s and the come home already’s and the I’m so lonely the chairman wont let me pet him please come home so I can hug you’s. magnus never texts, are you safe? or please don’t take unnecessary risks tonight, I miss you too much, because he’d rather alec think he’s clingy than upset alec with his worry

- When hes home alone and has nothing else to distract him he’ll show up at the institute to watch alec train, and when alecs done magnus will kiss the part of his forehead with the least sweat and give him a bottle of water. He ignores alec’s “sorry I was busy” and “I know us hacking at dummies is boring” and says simply “I wanted to see you”. alec may or may not drop whatever weapon he picks up next because hes too busy blushing to think clearly

- Or instead magnus will stay home and go through pictures of him and alec together, he sends alec his favorites with captions like, “remember this?” and, “god, this was my favorite day with you” it helps when he misses alec and he likes the satisfaction of knowing alec gets flustered when he gets the texts

-  “do you even want me here” “magnus, its our wedding night. Of course I do” “then why won’t you hold my hand” “i’m eating” “Alecccccc”

- Alec taking max out for a father-son playdate and magnus responding to the picture alec sends him of the two of them “you guys look like youre having so much fun without me ://” alec: “we’ll be home in 10 minutes. Max got you a present” magnus: “I’ll make cookies”

But im completely lying, because alec has been head over heels for magnus from the beginning and being unsure about them and himself doesn’t stop him from always wanting to be with magnus

- Alec my city is under attack and people are dying all around us and theres a good chance we’ll die but I need to know RIGHT NOW why you never called me back Lightwood

- Alec whining throughout the entire process of magnus putting on makeup (but he likes to watch and sometimes magnus lets him pick colors)

- completely wrapping himself around magnus like a human pretzel on the mornings alec is free but magnus has clients. “five more minutes” “i’m already ten minutes late” “please” (giving up with no fight at all) “okay.”

- he misses magnus so badly when he works. usually magnus waits up for alec to get home, but sometimes its so late when alec gets home he’s already in bed. alec will strip and climb into bed as quietly as he can, content to be near magnus. but sometimes he can’t wait for the next morning to talk to him so he’ll wake magnus up if only to say goodnight. after, alec wraps his arms around magnus’s chest and they both fall asleep smiling.

Palpatine in PT

I was casually flipping through PT screencaps when I noticed this subtle/not so sublte thing with Sheev and Valorum When Queen Amidala and her ship finally arrive on Naboo and the welcome party comes to greet them, this is the first time we officially meet Palaptine and Valorum. 

Good old Sheev speaks first. And it’s only after he’s done and gives Valorum this look

does the Chancellor speak.

Maybe this is protocol. Maybe the system/planet-in-crisis’ senator is supposed to address the queen first rather than having the highest ranking person lead. I can’t help reading this as evidence of how puppetlike Valorum has become (allowed himself to become/ is. idk, that’s a whole other post) and how in control Palpatine is of this situation. They haven’t been on-planet for thirty seconds, and Palpatine is already pulling the strings. 

Also check out this shot just before the above exchange

Usually the more important person is in focus, which given the super political nature of this film is presumably whoever ranks highest. Never in this short shot does the focus leave Sheev, (which kind of echoes this shot that kind of encapsulates this whole post.)

Palpatine is this film all of 10 minutes max and we get these really subtle cues in his first introduction of who the real problem is. Valorum might be the elected head of this 1,000 year old Republic, but this senator from a nowhere Republic system calls the shots. Yeah, it’s not a super revelation that the Sith are the titular Phantom Menace, but it’s this Sith that’s the danger. The smiling, grandfatherly little shit that manipulates a flipping smart young woman into eliminating his rival and propelling him to power. It’s THIS

not this

that you have to watch out for. It’s the smiling politician, not some raging sith, that leads Anakin down to the dark side.
