Important-Stuff

Ok so I’ve been seeing a ton of those ‘we need more representation at hogwarts’ posts and I was like hell why not more Jewish representation at Hogwarts (and like everywhere else but that’s another story). No like imagine though
  • parents calling/or I guess writing the school to make sure that their kids get a kosher meal option and that there’s a good Jewish presence
  • having Friday night and Saturday morning and Holiday services in the room of requirement
  • bar and bat mitzvahs would be fuckin epic like imagine having your bar or bat mitzvah in the Great Hall like hot damn people would talk about that for centuries like what was your bar/bat mitzvah theme? oh just REAL LIFE WIZARDING MAGIC
  • on a more depressing note learning about how Voldemort tried to wipe out anyone who wasn’t pureblood brings up too many Holocaust parallels and is actually extremely upsetting to many students/ many of the Jewish kids teach their non-muggleborn friends about the Holocaust when they ask why they’re getting so distraught
  • but on a lighter note Hannukah at Hogwarts would be fuckin awesome. like Slytherin students charming their dreidels so they can win every time, Hufflepuffs making everyone homemade gifts and shit, EVERYONE fucking making latkes bc those rule, also the kitchen elves being like wtf is a latke and the students being like prepare to have your mind fuckin blown
  • giving the Jewish students the day off on Yom Kippur bc like how the frick are you supposed to function come on (that should apply to every school not just magical ones let’s be honest here)
  • accidentally saying spells in Hebrew because if you grew up learning Hebrew and English it’s gonna slip out when speaking another foreign language (happens to me all the time in Spanish)
  • getting howlers from concerned mothers who just want you to call back or write back because they love you and they want to make sure you’re warm and well fed (but they remind you that the cooking will never be as good as their own, and your mom is probably right, you miss her brisket and kugel) and if you’re dating anyone make sure it’s a nice jewish boy/girl!
  • religious kids arguing over what kind of magic is okay to use on Shabbat and holidays
  • religious kids getting kippot that match their respective houses
  • religious kids davening in their common rooms each morning
  • having a succah in the courtyard on Succot, but it does the bigger on the inside thing like the tents at the Quidditch world cup, so on the outside it looks pretty small and humble but you get inside and it’s like decked the fuck out and there’s candy from honeydukes everywhere and it’s just amazing
  • dressing up on Halloween and Purim and giving shalach manot to their friends and professors
  • WHY CANT YOU EAT BREAD FOR THE WHOLE WEEK? This question comes up whether you’re in the wizarding world or not let’s face it.
  • HOGWARTS SEDERS. The great hall decorated for the Seder. those long ass Hogwarts tables decorated with like ten Seder plates because they are so long. Students staying up way past their bedtime because it’s the Seder and that’s just what you do. all the kids who were at the Seder just wiped out in classes the next day.
  • Jewish wizards charming matzah into actually tasting decent (what a thought)
  • Jewish wizards inviting their non Jewish friends to Seders and Friday night dinners
  • Introducing friends to the magical bread that is Challah and kids being like 'damn son I do magic all day every day but this is true magic’
  • Jewish wizard couples just because
  • Celebrating Israeli Independence Day at Hogwarts (that would be a dream come true holy moly) like cooking falafel and stuff with the kitchen elves that would be amazing
  • basically just send me to Hogwarts already

The 1st of May kick-starts Mental Health Awareness Month! So for this entire month lets celebrate our triumphs, acknowledge struggles, and just come together as one to show your support. Let other people know they’re not alone. Feel less alone yourself- but you are not, no matter what. Reach out and get help, or help others to seek it themselves. Talk about mental health so we can break the stigma on mental health together!

Alright since I’m getting a lot of hate messages and stuff so I’m just gonna make this clear. I don’t ship Rick and Morty romantically. Like, I ship them comedically. How can I explain this, uhh, like a combo. I just love the pair? I just like seeing them together going adventures and stuff and just getting along. Them together making jokes about something, laughing - I just like seeing those kinds of cute and fluffy art and I want to draw them. That’s what I meant about “shipping”, okay? Stop sending me hate. It’s really hard to deal with them and affecting my mental health a lot. I’m a person just like you who has daily lives.

and ALSO, for that Pinecest art I drew months ago, I drew that for my friend on Twitter because they liked the ship. I don’t blame or think they’re weird since it’s a fictional ship. Y’all need to know the difference between reality and fiction.

hey there's a march tomorrow in town, 2pm in the garden of remembrance. It was called by United Against Racism. It's against Enda Kenny's pandering to Trump, anti-traveller discrimination and direct provision. Direct Provision is a system for asylum seekers which is set up so as to let the least amount of people in in the longest possible time. People are in the system for up to 14 years without the ability to work, to cook, to rebuild their lives. And families can be separated for years.

“Life is too difficult to navigate without help, and it’s too important not to work at. You go through life and you accumulate shadow…you get a pretty heavy ass shadow to carry around all the time, and it’s good to work that stuff out.”

Um… I don’t know if I’m just in a low mood from being sick these last few days, but with this cold causing my brain to run at like thirty percent of its normal speed, I had a lot of time to sit and think about stuff. (and start watching Reign, but that’s another story)

I think it’s time I spill this. 

It was dumb of me to think I could possibly earn enough money for a laptop through commissions and shenanigans alone. I might’ve let the fact that more than 1000 people see all my posts get to my head, and I apologize for that. I thought I maybe had a chance, but who am I kidding.

I dunno… I feel like I’ve created this sort of barrier since posting that issue… Some kind of barrier of ‘professionalism’… is it just my imagination? I don’t wanna create that kind of atmosphere. I still want to do this for fun, at least for now.

What about saving up the money? I’m working it out. My parents presented the option of teaching little kids private piano lessons (they’re both music teachers), which is much better than getting a minimum wage job doing something time consuming and even somewhat uncomfortable for me. (talking to strangers on a regular basis?! noooo thank you)

While figuring out how to teach small children would definitely be a learning experience for me, it’s a much more reliable job than… this commission thing I brought up.

Look, if any of you were actually interested in commissioning me, that’s great. We can work something out anyway. I will GLADLY accept the money and draw for you. But something is telling me I need to go in another direction with this, and push a little more of my time in other directions as well.

… after I’m not sick, that is.

If there is only one thing I can tell you, one thing I can teach, it is this:

never let them take your voice.

For all their attempts at silencing you, for all their spiels on how women are meant to be quiet and people are never meant to be this intelligent, tell them that to choose ignorance is to choose death. Tell them that you were not born to be a passive member of the world as they have been taught to be, just because those in control of this broken society refuse to relinquish their power to the people who had originally held it.

Tell them that this intelligence is your freedom. Tell them that there is nothing embarrassing about asking questions, about wanting to know more about the world that made you bloom into the person that you are now.

Tell them that you will not bow, never submit, to this world they’ve made for themselves that does not like dreamers like you.

Tell them that you are who you are, and if they expect you to change just to fit into the mold they themselves were shaped in, a constant victim to society’s mindlessness and fear of anything different or new-

well.

They’ve got another thing coming, and it’s not anything good (for them, anyway).

Hey I just wanna know if you guys are stopping paultryk because of what happened, I probably would if I were you but it's your choice

((Hey! Car here. Me and Del decided to keep the ship but we made some few changes. From now on, we will call Patryk “Patty” and the ship name will change to “Poppet”. Paul will remain the same because however, he’s name is pretty common. There is nothing wrong with the ship nor the shippers, it’s the fans who harasses real life people and use their real names. Please don’t send in any hate. - Car))

anonymous asked:

Whoops I didn't mean for it to sound like hate, I'm ok with The ship, sorry if it sounded like I was hating you for it, cause I love this blog and your guys art :3 please forgive me

((No no no! It’s totally fine I was just talking to other people who might send in hate because of the ship! You’re cool my friend :D - Car))

Please do not disregard or dismiss teenagers’ problems.

You may now be an adult, and reading about a girl who feels depressive because her best friend went to the cinema with another person may seem stupid to you.

But it is not stupid.

For you, who had to deal with all kind of emotions for years, these problems are something to laugh at. But for them, these are very real. 

It is the first time that teen lost their phone. The first time that teen had to undress in front of their friends. The first time this other teen had to see with terror how their beloved first pokemon dies in a battle. The first time they drew a manga style face succefully but older ‘mature’ people tell them it’s a stupid bad drawing. The first time they fell in love. The first time they thought it would last forever but it didn’t. The first time they had to use a tampon. The first time they were laughed at because they feel lame while playing football. The first time they proudly show that short subtle buzz on their chins and their parents laugh because no, that’s not even a baby beard.

These are not small problems. They all are facing their very first sensations and controntations towards utterly new experiences, and what we now as ‘adults’ feel it’s naive or dull, it is something important to them.

TL;DR if a teenager trusts you enough to tell you about their problem, just nod and tell them they’re right and that that sucks. Do not mock them because they do need to be able to trust adults.
