I can't imagine some of the amazing things you got to see! I'm fairly jealous but I know one day I'll accomplish my dream of traveling the world!

I wish traveling was so much easier and we didn’t have to fear for what’s going on out in the world. Sometimes I just wonder if there’s something we can do, there’s so much stupid stuff going on, and then it dawns (dons??? idk bro it’s one of them) on me how different everyone is and how I’m sitting here complaining about my English homework when some people don’t have the privilege to an education. It’s too late for me to be thinking about this, but sometimes you just can’t help it.

please don’t ask me who i am; my insides are always remodeling or maybe the truth is that there’s nothing to see here. that i’m just reacting to things as they come, no personality to speak of. sometimes i think i’m doing okay but then i look back and realize i wasn’t. sometimes i think i’ve figured out who i’m going to be but it’s gone in the next week. sometimes i get it right but i constantly ask myself the same questions all of the time: why did i say that? why did i do that? why am i like this?

y’know what i really live for? yoongi breaking people’s expectations

like i somewhat have this coffee shop au in my head, no specific pairing really, but like yoongi frequents this coffee shop all the time

he always has his laptop  open and he sits in what the employees all dub, “his” corner, with his laptop and his notebook out and huge ass headphones on and he’s there every morning on weekdays for a few hours before he leaves

and poor guy has the most intimidating resting face and he always looks so tired and dead that everyone just automatically dubs him as the typical morning grump that always orders black coffee, no milk or sugar, and hates people

the employees and the regulars all know of yoongi and everyone gives him a wide berth usually

but then one early morning, these 2 boys come in

they’re younger guys, relatively same height, one with a wide boxy smile and the other with cute bunny teeth

they both order drinks and they look around and they spot yoongi. they get huge smiles on their faces and they start. heading. to the corner™.

and the whole coffee shop just inhales as one and holds their breath because omfg there’s gonna be a murder

the guys sneak up on yoongi and then the boxy smile guy just thumps his hands on yoongi’s shoulder and yoongi jumps so hard and he turns around and

he smiles

the cutest, most endearing gummy smile with crescent eyes and squishy cheeks and everyone is flabbergasted and a little bit in love

and after that day, he sometimes comes in with a few other boys, always the same 6 though, and he smiles and laughs and jokes around all the time

and it’s beautiful :’)


Let him be everything because he is everything.



no. that isn’t right.


still no good.


the world does not end.
it is still saved.

the world rebuilds its defences,
with fragile hands that shake against the ocean tide,
the world mends its broken bones and kisses its own bruises.
the world does not burn or freeze, crumble or flood.
there is time. there is time.
there is still time.



Aaron was right. That was the last time (so far/in a very long time at least) that Robert lashed out at him and treated him the way he did that day at the scrapyard. 




No, you don’t understand. This scene basically interprets what almost EVERY weeaboo goes through.

You’ve got the TRASH who is obsessed with their interest, the FAMILY who’s used to the obsession, the MIDDLEMAN who knows the world but isn’t completely engrossed by it, and the OUTSIDER who has no clue and is overwhelmed with confusion; and who requires the assistance of the middleman.

the real struggle = how much i love reading, and how much it totally screws me up lately when i finish a good, thoughtful book


I don’t have a choice. I don’t get to just go.

I’m so tired of people telling me things like “Why are you so quiet?” “Why don’t you hang out with your friends?” “You’re young! You should go out and have fun!” “You’re wasting your life” etc.

Like what the fuck do you know about my life? Maybe partying all night isn’t fun to me?? Maybe not everyone is like you?? For me fun is staying at home watching a movie or listening to music. Hanging out with people is exhausting to me and after a couple hours I become really sulky I don’t want people to see me like that. Why is being introverted still not acceptable? Can’t we just be acknowledged?

Initiate Era - Master Dooku & Qui-Gon

Master Dooku has the highest standards and only chooses the most elite of the elite as his apprentices. Initiate Jinn is a prodigy and looks perfect on the records and is also exceptionally gifted in sensing the Living Force. Master Dooku thought he would make the perfect Padawan. Sometimes, Master Dooku is wrong.

Or, Master Dooku has to bribe a young Padawan Qui-Gon with Obi-Wan’s company in order to get him to do anything.

[A/N] In this AU where everyone is happy, almost no one is evil and everyone lives, Master Dooku is that grumpy grandpa who looks super scary but is actually ridiculously soft once you get to know him. Qui-Gon is his third apprentice, and all three of his Padawans are ridiculously rebellious (and spoiled) in their own ways. You’ll meet the other two soon <3

Confused? Have no idea why Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are only 3 years apart?

Hey, how do you find the motivation to draw ???


I’m not the best person to ask I reckon since I’ve honestly not been in too bad of an art slump in a while but I do know what it feels like. My advice would be to inspire yourself. Find something you absolutely want to draw; whether it be something from real life or an idea or just some random art. I mean even if it’s just the thought in your head of drawing, it still counts. It makes us driven. 

Don’t pressure yourself, or worse, don’t look down and be angry at yourself for not drawing. This is something a lot of people do and it doesn’t have to be only art. It’s our own little ball of frustration that we keep to ourselves. But don’t let that build up inside you that it eats you up. Be reminded that this is a steady process, that for good work to be created, an even better state of mind and a good thinking process is required is behind it. Be reminded that this is a process, all tiny steps to create something that is essentially for ourselves. Don’t beat yourself over it, it’s natural to suddenly lose motivation and it’s natural to having slow baby steps towards coming back. No one can ever stay on that treadmill all year, so let yourself be steady and stay at a pace you can handle because otherwise you’re rushing and pressuring yourself. Don’t do that to yourself. Don’t let yourself be the enemy. 

As mentioned, take baby steps! Take tiny parts of your day doing what you want to do. For example, at a certain time when I’m not feeling the digital art, I like to draw all over one page each night at least. Usually by then, I’ll have a sketch I’m dying to have done digitally. Tiny things like this and just an hour’s work can really get the ball rolling! The Bubblegum Series was just a random sketch of Cana back then. When I really feel like I’m missing out on the traditional art and losing motivation to do it, I watch other people’s work. See their process and think “I really wanna try out that technique”. That kind of thinking is how I created the style of The Bubblegum Series. Seeing other styles is inspirational as it is, but observing the process of work is something else; I’ve mentioned before that watching speedpaints in something I enjoy to observe the process of an artist and incorporating techniques in my own process to see how it all collides to create something new. It’s how I usually step back and change up how I draw or colour!

Some baby steps;

- Create a musical playlist full of songs you think will def get you wanting to draw that something! I have one and some pretty heartbreaking stuff is there. 

- Write stuff down! Dude, this is important! Make sure to jot down your ideas. Like for real, I don’t care if you have perfect memory. Ideas can easily slip out so write down what you want to draw when you think of it in a middle of breakfast or something!

- Draw some real life people! It helps because you don’t have a certain topic to even think about! All you have to do is capture the moment. Let it be the impromptu of art. The most difficult but the most rewarding. 

- Draw people you know! Doesn’t matter! There is 90% chance they will love and appreciate it! I did this as practice a few months back; I picked any one of my instagram followers each weekend! It really gets you going because there’s usually a lot of support and of course, you can ask for feedback. 

- Draw someone’s OC. Again, so that you don’t have a certain topic to worry about. It’ll make someone’s day and brighten yours, I promise. 

Have some time to yourself. Balance out what you wanna achieve and what you want to do with your art. Find a goal and work out the little mini goals towards that goal. How about finding a new style? How about getting better at a certain area? It’s all a learning process for all of us and motivation comes from the determination we build for ourselves. Sometimes, I take a step back from my work and ask what I can do next. This is a topic completely on another spectrum but I despise sticking to a certain way of drawing sometimes, which is why if you scroll through all my art, you can see so many different ways of painting and drawing. Everyone is always looking for their own style but I highly discourage finding that style and sticking to it all the time. Of course, you’ll still improve somewhat but when you see how many ways you can draw one thing and another, you’ll find motivation to pursue those things. Pursue how to do this , how to do that, how to pull off this and how to pull off that. Think about what you can find that might surprise even yourself. Trying to find other ways of drawing things is why I keep drawing today and for god’s sake it is useful as all hell. You develop so many skills and techniques. I can incorporate what I did before to what I do now. I can incorporate this lighting technique before to what I do now.  Motivation comes from determination towards what we want to achieve and what I highly suggest you can aim to achieve for is to develop new ways of drawing. Even the thought of finding a new way can motivate you. 

Lastly, motivate yourself by knowing this is what you love. This is what you want to do. These are the ideas you want to create and these are the lines and colours and thoughts you want to share. We draw because we love to draw. Motivate by finding new music and drawing because of that. Motivate by looking at other art and wanting to create that same certain effect. Motivate by wanting to find new ways. Motivate by knowing that you want this motivation because you want to do what you want to do. I know the feeling of the loss, about a two years ago I didn’t draw much at all and I always wanted to and I always had the sinking feeling that I wanted to do it but couldn’t. But I do because I’ve found goals and things I want to create. I’ve found out that I’m a sucker for doing extensive stuff and never letting a piece go until I’m fully satisfied (which is never the case). I’ve found out that there are things I’m willing to sacrifice because of art. Motivation depends on you, and only you and maybe even those around you. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to do art. I’ve never had a single person who told me to stop doing this art. I mean, apart from the occasional math teacher in the middle of class but they all mean well. Seriously, find the positive people. They’re there somewhere. 

I hope you’re doing alright and having a good day. 

Adios, amigos.
