Learning-Anywhere

anonymous asked:

how did you learn how to draw? and any tips for people who want to learn?

i get this question often and i’m never quite sure how to answer it, because i didn’t really learn it from anyone/anywhere? for me it wasn’t about how i “learned” to draw, but how i “allowed” myself to draw. for years i felt guilty drawing because it was something i did secretly instead of studying. this went on forever until around 2 years ago, when i finally gave myself the time to draw. so, to answer your question my tips would be-

  • don’t rush
  • when you’re drawing, you’re drawing. try and forget about everything else
  • give yourself some time
  • explore different styles (especially when you’re beginning. having an “artstyle” doesn’t make you cool)
  • look back at your progress from time to time and feel good about what you’re doing
WORKING AS A TRANSLATOR #1

A long, long time ago, I promised you to make some posts about being a translator… Finally, I have some free time to do it! Sorry, for being so late! As I said before, I’m not super experienced in translation, but on the other hand I don’t feel like a total beginner anymore, so I want to share my knowledge with you. Let’s start with the basics.

WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU NEED?

Some people will tell you that you don’t need any qualifications. And sometimes it’s true. There are people, who work as translators even though they have no official qualifications. But of course, it’s much easier when you get the right education. There are some things that will look very well in your resume.

STUDY LANGUAGES/TRANSLATION AT UNIVERISTY

That’s probably the best thing you can do. You can learn the language really well, you have opportunity to work with professionals, you are going to be well-prepared and you will get the right knowledge. Your future employers will appreciate a degree in languages for sure, if you want to work as a professional translator.

LANGUAGE COURSES

Taking part in language course is also a good idea, especially if you can get a diploma that proves your participation. You can learn many useful things and sometimes you can also enroll in a course abroad. Learning with native speakers is a great way of practice!

COURSES FOR TRANSLATORS

Some language schools organize special courses for translators. They can teach you about translation methods, special software for translators etc. It can be very useful.

LANGUAGE CERTIFICATES

Many translators study one or two languages at university, but they are also fluent in other languages. To prove their language proficiency, they get language certificate. The higher your level, the better. C1 or C2 level is always impressive.

GET A SPECIALIZATION

Translating is not always as easy as it seems. Sometimes you have to translate a text about something and you don’t really know the vocabulary in your native language… That’s why translators often choose their own specialization. Some specialize in translating technical or medical texts, other focus on literature, art and psychology… The list is endless. So if you are interested in something, try to read about it in your target language, too. There are also special courses where you can learn specific vocabulary.

LEARN LANGUAGES ANYWHERE

Learn languages on your own. Take a Duolingo course, learn on your own, read foreign books. Not everything can be taught at school, you need to put a lot of effort in learning languages. The sooner you start, the better. Practice make perfect!

Gideon

it’s insane that there are people who don’t think Gideon is the embodiment of white. He believes 100% in that which is greater than him- his irregulars, the gatewatch, the boros army, the allies on zendikar, the gods- and fully believes that without the unity and structure of the whole there is no path forward. Gids has been adrift since losing his faith in Theros and getting his spark, and everything he’s done in the story since then has been towards the end of finding and rebuilding that belief in the greater. He’s maybe the perfect essence of White.

And really, i’m tired of listening to folks disparage the idea of being lawful good paladin protector or whatever. it’s tough to give of yourself so much, to put yourself out for little to no reward, simply for the satisfaction of knowing you helped someone else. Gids resonates with me because of his legit selflessness and desire to be the best support structure there is. He’s extroverted, vulnerable (emotionally, not physically), and willing to go to any length in order to make sure the group is happy.

This leads into yesterday’s magic story and a little personal context.

Hi!Do you think they'll keep Carol in the kingdom in season8 to keep the viewers interested in that community?Also, do you think Carol and Zeke need to be romantic for the story to move forward?(I mean, he and comic Michonne were a couple in the comics. Was it necessary for the storyline?).I know he dies eventually. Is that supposed to affect Carol deeply?Can they afford Carol and Daryl being a couple and still have a very strong reaction from her when he dies?Sorry I got carried away!Thank you!

Hi, Nonny, season 8 has not even started filming yet, so whether or not Carol stays in the Kingdom after the war is known only to Scott Gimple at this point. 

For all we know right now, Daryl and Carol could end up taking over The Kingdom after Ezekiel meets his fate.

No, Carz3kiel does not “need to happen to keep viewers interested”- although it sounds as though you want that to be the truth. Sorry to disappoint you there. 

You should read TWD Comic Wikia content for A Prelude to War and also AOW Parts I & 2 to understand what we are likely to see on the show. 

Carol has not taken on most of comic Michonne’s stories, so I urge you to keep that in mind- I doubt she ever will, and no, I do not see Carz3kiel ever happening on the show.

Carol did not meet Oceanside, Tara did.  Comic Michonne had romantic & physical relationships with Tyreese, Morgan and Ezekiel , yet, none of these arcs have happened to Carol. Or will of course. 

Viewers seem to like the Kingdom already with Shiva, Jerry, cobbler, Richard and King Ezekiel plus Carol and Morgan there, so I think it will continue being more popular than some of the other communities we have seen in season 8. So, no, now it is established anyone can be there or not be there and it will be fine.

Carol cares about many people so I am sure she will be sad when Ezekiel dies n the show, whenever that might be. Carol feeling sad about Ezekiel has absolutely nothing to do with Caryl and could never prevent Caryl.   

You seem very eager to “find some reason “ why Caryl will not be together and instead to pair Carol off with Ezekiel.  You’ll most likely be disappointed IMO.

Take care

Since making the first set, I’ve seen many comments being added about how animation meant so much to so many people. That it’s changed their life, their view on the world, and how it’s taught them valuable life lessons they couldn’t have learned from anywhere else. Don’t you see how important animation can be? How so many lessons, so many feelings and emotions can be carefully packaged into a twenty minute show? They’ll only continue to make our lives warp into something magnificent.

“Italy Diaries, page 1 // This summer I decided to move to Italy for an entire month. I got my heartbroken in the spring by a boy I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with and my only escape from the thoughts in my head was to leave. Leave my surroundings. I couldn’t even go to the grocery store without being reminded of him. So I did it. I got rid of everything that reminded me of what we shared and left. It started off with cutting my hair. He always loved my long hair and he hated bangs. So I cut bangs and also my ends. I left the states in June and went to Milan for a month where I stayed with an unbelievably incredible family and taught English. I was eternally grateful because not only was I teaching, but I was also learning. That month was full of soul searching and getting back to being myself again. But truth be told, I didn’t go back to my old self. I reinvented myself, I was reborn. Italy and the people I was surrounded by taught me so much that I couldn’t learn from anyone or anywhere else. To love myself as much as the love I give in return. “Veni, Vidi, Amavi.” - I came, I saw, and I loved.”

Marks of a Martial Artist

Before my master passed, he wrote a few books about various topics relative to martial arts.
Among these books was his his student manual. In it he included what to expect of the class, the ranking process, terms, material, testing tips, striking points, and history, in addition to other important subjects to cover about a marital arts class. It truly is a thought-provoking and well-written book.

He also included 17 marks of a martial artist. The martial arts are more than just the physical aspects. The mental aspects and way of life is just as crucial.
Each one is different and holds special purpose and meaning. This has helped guide me, show me what to remain aware of and what to aim for– Especially after everything that has happened to me in my journey.
My master portrayed each of this inside and outside of the class room; I hope this helps others as much as it has helped me. I miss him more than I can handle, but his memory and teachings will remain.

1. Enthusiasm:
A martial artist must be enthusiastic in order to achieve success.
If someone doesn’t like what they are doing, imagine the limit that will put on them. Enthusiasm is crucial in order to be effective and efficient. They put effort, and they are happy to do so.

2. Self-motivation:
Self-motivation is what drives one to go to join, go to class, etc. When someone is self-motivated, they will progress quicker as they are in the optimal state of mind and ready to improve. What is important, however, is that one also recognizes this must be done inside and outside of the class room- practice.

3. Self-discipline:
Some people may be wondering what the difference is. Self-motivation gets one alert and started, and self-discipline keeps one going. The example my master provides exclaims self-motivation is the vehicle by which one will strive to maintain a strong and efficient practice. On the other hand, self-discipline is the fuel to remain. It is the willpower to do what one knows needs to be done.
A student who shows up to class and claims to want it and love it in their life, but does not practice or show persistence, is an example of motivation without discipline.

4. Curiosity:
Curiosity, spirit, interest– A martial artist should ask questions because they are thinking. They are thinking about what they are doing and also thinking about what they are thinking about.
“Why do some people have 10 degree black belts? What can I do to improve accuracy? How did this originate? What is the purpose of this movement?”
They strive to go above and beyond what is simply told to them in class. They aim to study on their own, think about it on their own, ask questions. etc.

5. Conscientiousness:
This is when one is aware and mindful of detail, one’s performance, mentality, emotion, and technique. They must also strive to be aware and mindful of what is around them, whether it is with an opponent or not. Additionally, recognizing one’s efforts and limits is important. Going beyond safe limits will be hazardous. All of this is important for improvement, safety, and health.

6. Humility:
With proper humility, they can learn anywhere, anytime, from anyone. Regardless of rank, a martial artist should know that they are not “above” anyone, and that it is not about being "better" than anyone else– it is about self-improvement. Humility is shown whether one is teaching, being taught, or not. They furthermore have no problem deferring to legitimate, well-meaning authority.

7. Sportsmanship:
With the amount of physical contact, possible competitions, and the like, sportsmanship is a crucial part of martial arts. Martial artists should aim to understand that one never truly “loses” if they learn something from every encounter. Regardless, it is not about winning– it is about self-improvement and learning. Resentment, anger, the need to overrun others, etc., is put at a minimum. 
Additionlly, my master explains with sportsmanship, a give and take scenario can be achieved through respect and with what one can teach each other, whether they are a student or a teacher.

8. Cooperative attitude:
Cooperative, not competitive.
My master states, “With a competitive attitude, we feel the need to be superior to others by beating them, and with a cooperative one, we extend a hand so that everyone rises to their fullest potential.”
It’s not about going in the class room and kicking higher than others, hitting harder than others, etc. That may not only cloud one from their own goals and personal progress, but it will also show in their attitude.

9. Integrity:
Integrity is the alignment of actions with words. If one claims to be humble, then they should show such in their actions, and so on. Our choices, must be aimed to align with living the life of a martial artist. There is also a balance.

10. Tenacity:
Another word for perseverance and determination, my master specifically describes, “Persistent, stubborn, obstinate, not easily pulled asunder… these are all different ways of describing the quality of tenacity.”
They aim to break through difficulties and obstacles, and remain determined and persevere while doing so. Board breaking can symbolize such concept.

11. Goal orientation:
This will provide guidance, like a map, to a martial artist. Both short term and long term goals are relevant. While earning one’s black belt may be a long term goal, there must be short term goals to reach it.
If one doesn’t have the short term goal of improving a basic kick, they will not be ready to perform longer term goals with such a kick: breaking boards, jump kicks, and sparring applications.
Martial artists should strive to obtain a foundation and a layer of hard work.

12. Kindness:
My master states, “No status worth having is ever held with any true dignity absent the mark of kindness. Kindness amplifies all other qualities and synergies them to form something that all other marks could not by themselves reach.”
With such authority, skill, and codes of conduct, and representation, kindness is relevant in martial arts.

13. Fortitude:
Whether it is a test, pain, adversity, or temptation, inside or outside of the class room, physically or mentally, one must strives to remain courageous and strong at these times.

14. Resilience:
There will be aspects like such ^ that will try to bend or shape you. One must  have the ability to bounce back from them.
My master states, “If I transform/change, it is because I needed to, and not because someone or something threatened to reshape or break me.”
They remain whole and are in control.

15. Loyalty:
Like integrity, martial artists should strive to show such through words as well as actions. Loyalty to the school, instructor, and other students– they aim for this because they are returning what is done for them and they know the benefits of martial arts.

16. Appreciation:
My master states, “I realize that I can buy an instructor’s time, but I can never buy knowledge or improvement at any price.”
My master taught me how to live– I can show such gratitude by living the way, going above and beyond, and by aiming for humility and many of these other marks.

17. Compassion:
Martial arts concerns itself with the well-being of people. It provides physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional components– as well as a way to defend and benefit others. Having compassion is like the umbrella of martial arts.

Overall, my master made it important to note a martial artist should put forth effort and realistic improvement (inside and outside of the classroom)within these marks, and that one does not have to be perfect.

My master states in his other book in a dedication to me:
“If you look for the parallels, you will find that the classroom is a microcosm that represents situations in our outer lives as well. Sparring allows others to challenge us to a higher level of development with friendship and respect – this lesson could serve you well in whatever profession you choose and even in your home life. When we break boards we learn the satisfaction and the possibility of smashing through obstacles that seem to block our way - you’ll need that lesson throughout life. When we perform and refine our forms, we practice a sort of moving meditation that allows us to find stillness in the midst of motion, and to center ourselves within ourselves for our best performance, regardless of what is going on around us - you’ll need that lesson in a very busy world which sometimes threatens to unbalance us with its commotion, activity, and drama.”

Imagine being Dean and Sam’s little sister and Amara bringing you back instead of Mary.

Dean couldn’t understand what Amara meant by saying that she was going to give him what he wanted most. He hadn’t understood it then nor the days after that but then again he didn’t find it in himself to care when he had to look for Sam. He was already worried enough about his little brother to think about what could have possibly happened. And quite honestly it didn’t seem to him like she had done anything in the first place so he willed himself to not think about ‘what if’s… much less what it was that he really wanted and she could give.

But then it all changed and Dean realized everything the moment those were spoken.

“Stay away from my boys!” your voice echoed through the dark place and both Dean and Sam froze in place, just as did the British woman of letters.

It was at that moment everything fell in place. It was the moment you came into view and Dean got to see the little girl, well not so little, but to him you always were that, that he lost all those years ago to the very things he hunted. He blamed himself more than Sam did, because more or less they both felt responsible for not doing something more to save you.

And now, both he and Sam were staring at you like you were going to burst. You ate happily on your pie “Man death got me more hungry than I thought.” you laughed and Dean and Sam chuckled softly at the words that gave away how much of a Winchester you were. You chewed happily on your food before stopping and raising an eyebrow at them “Everything alright?”you asked through a mouth full and Dean grinned widely.

“Nah” he shrugged, sharing a look with Sam “Just remembered that we’ll have to buy double the pies from now on.”

“Oh hell yeah you will!” you grinned after swallowing “And I am definitely getting a room of my own in this huge place, which you till have to tell me how you got by the way.”

“Don’t worry kiddo.” Dean placed a hand on your shoulder “We’ll fill you up on everything.”

“As long as you are willing to stay.” Sam said softly and you gave him a smile.

“Sammy I ain’t going anywhere, I’ve learned my lesson.”

“Yeah you better.” Dean clenched his jaw and you gave him a look. You were the youngest one, yes, but you always were the one to support your brothers and be their rock.

“I meant being more careful, not giving up my life for you. That I would do again and again and all over again as long as you two are alright.”

“Yeah well-” Sam sighed, looking at Dean for a moment “We weren’t really.” he confessed and you sighed, dropping your fork.

“I know you weren’t. And I understand but these holes- we can fill them, the way we always had. The Winchester way.” you placed a hand on each of their own.

“And we got plenty of them, don’t we?” Dean muttered and you squeezed his hand, knowing you were quite responsible for it. You could only begin to imagine how they would feel at having to burn your body. Hell even carry to burn it.

“Well- truth is that- having you here?” Sam gave you a weak smile “It feels in the biggest hole.”

schniggles  asked:

I think the most valuable thing I've learned from you/your blog is the intense psychological toll veterinary work takes on people. I haven't ever wanted to be a vet, but either way I knew practically nothing about the rigors involved! That's not something I'd be able to learn just anywhere. (Also 'universal health' is a really neat concept!)

Thanks. The psychological impact of veterinary medicine is rarely talked about in popular media. I’d like to think that newcomers to the industry would be better prepared if they were aware, and that might reduce our burn out rates. I really hope that talking about it helps someone.

Neon Genesis Evangelion Gifset Series - PARENTHOOD

“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent’s heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.” (x)

Andi Mack

“Andi Mack is an amazing show! It deserves so much appreciation!” Yes 10000% agree but that doesn’t mean you should be dragging down girl meets world to push it up. Like people saying a long thing about Andi Mack and then girl:meets world. Really please stop trashing a show that was the first of many to actually teach kids lessons they can’t learn anywhere else. The show was important. Stop trashing it.

Okay so, I saw that giving tipps with languages is v helpful for some people, since you don’t really learn how to use slangs n stuff in school/courses/apps etc, so if you’re interested in german then this might help ya

The word you will probably never learn anywhere is the word ‘Geil’, literally translated to 'horny’ but it just means that something is great or amazing
“Das Essen schmeckt geil!”
(The food tastes awesome!)

'Nee’ short form of 'Nein’, easier to use but you should only use it around people you’re comfortable with, since it’s slightly rude to say 'Ne’ to someone you don’t know

'Nö’ also means 'Nein’

'Ja ne (is klar)’. 'Ja ne’ just means 'duh’ used as sarcasm.
'Ja ne is klar’ means 'yeah, right’, when you don’t believe something someone has told you

'Schnauze’ literally translated to 'snout’ but it means 'shut up’. You can also say 'Halt die/deine Schnauze’ what would be like 'shut your mouth’

'Ciao’ we also say that and people understand you if you use Ciao, but the more german form is 'Tschau’. It has the same meaning as Ciao

'Na’ meaning 'hi’ or 'and?/well?’ If it’s a question

'Tschüß’ meaning 'good bye’

'Alter’ literally translated to 'age’ but it means 'buddy’ or 'dude’

'Quatsch’ meaning 'that can’t be right’, 'that’s not it’ or similar

'Jein’ meaning 'yes no’. Used when you’re not sure, doubtful of something or try to tell someone that they’re not right but also not wrong

'Läuft bei dir’ meaning 'good for you’ or 'things are going well for you’. You don’t use it in a sarcastic way

'Hä?’ Meaning 'what?’, 'excuse me?’

We also often shorten our words. If we want to say 'wie geht es dir?’ (How are you), you shorten the 'es’ to ’s’ and put it on the word 'geht’. 'Wie geht’s dir?’.
Or words like 'hast du?’ (do you have?) become 'haste?’

If you wanna greet someone then 'Hallo’ might be alright, but you could also use words like 'Guten Tag’, 'Tach’, 'Grüß Gott’, 'Servus’, 'Moin’. They’re not used in every part of germany, like 'Moin’ is used in the north while 'Servus’ is used in the south but if you use 'Servus’ in the north then people will still know that you greeted them so don’t worry. There are even more greetings but this are the most known ones I think

100 Things You Learn Third Year of Medical School

So every year I’ve been writing these lists of 100 things you learn in each year of medical school (Found here). I am incredibly excited this year to bring you my list of 100 Things You Learn in your Third Year of Medical School.

This list contains advice about how to function on the floor, how to study, and how to handle your work-life imbalance. Click through to find such advice as:
• Whatever size scrubs you wear will be the least common size to find. Take as many pairs as you can find and stockpile them.
• EVERY procedure in OB requires shoe covers. Better to not need them than to have forgotten them
• Night shifts only come in two flavors: Insanely busy or so quiet you can not keep your eyes open.
• The best residents will notice when you’re sitting around doing nothing and will send you home—the worst residents will forget you’re even there.
• Falling asleep at 9pm is nothing to be ashamed of—in fact be proud of it.
• Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Best of luck all you new MS3s!
