30 Day Studyblr Challenge

Hello everyone! So in my time here I haven’t really come across a studyblr challenge other than the great “100 days of productivity” meme which I know is really helping a lot of people! I know there are probably some out there but I decided to contribute too!

However, I know some people struggle with what to post and when, and 100 days is a huge commitment! So I designed this short(er) “30 Day Studyblr Challenge” that anybody can participate in if they want to! The 30 days don’t have to be consecutive because I understand that people are busy and can’t always find time in the day to come on tumblr! So I invite you to take part in this little activity, and please feel free to tag me in your challenge uploads - If I see that I’ve been tagged I’ll check the post out.

Here are your challenge questions:

Day 20: Talk about your favourite fictional character
Day 21: A photo of your diary/planner/journal
Day 22: A photo of your dream school/university
Day 23: A photo of your favourite character from TV (Because it’s important to relax sometimes too)
Day 24: Write the sentence “I can do anything as long as I put my mind to it.” in all of the languages that you speak and take a photo. Tell yourself that every day!
Day 25: A photo of the work/notes you’re most proud of
Day 26: Try out mind-mapping and photograph the end result
Day 27: Try out a printable and take a photo of it in use
Day 28: Try going for a walk before you start studying today. Take a photo of something interesting you see while you’re out.

Larsadie fanart? In MY sketchbook??? It’s more likely than you think. (Day 12: Lars or Sadie)

Happy Solstice! Prepare for encroaching darkness from this point on! :D I totally skipped yesterday’s prompt for the challenge I’m doing bc I’m a bad artist but look! I definitely made up for it with the sheer volume of unrelated ship art :D

Also this blog just hit 200 followers! I don’t normally even acknowledge milestones like this but it means a lot that people seem to enjoy the stuff I make :) So whether you just showed up recently or you’ve been here from the beginning, thank you! I’m not always super interactive but I really do appreciate every like, reply and reblog on my art. Thanks!

30 Day Mass Effect: Andromeda Ryder Challenge

This meme is inspired by a question in the MEFFW FB group. Someone was looking for a Ryder challenge, so I decided that maybe we needed one that dealt more with game events. It is also inspired by several 30-day character challenges that I have seen pop up over the years. I know there was a pre-release 30-day Ryder challenge that went around, but it specifically dealt only with speculative Ryder content. The aim of this one is to incorporate questions directed at a fully/partially played Ryder.

The questions below are meant to be answered as specifically, generally, or tangentially as you like. None of the questions are required by any means; I expanded and offered some direction only as a guide for those who might prefer a little more guidance than a generalized category.

Please, pardon the vagueness of some of the questions, I am trying to limit spoilers as much as possible.

If you’d be up for it, I’ll be following the tag: #30dayMEARyderChallenge. I’d love to see the other Ryders out there in the universe.

And a quick thanks to Liz for her feedback. Really appreciate it.
