also the things i had to do to make this set

anonymous asked:

I'm very interested in computer science, do you have any book recommendations for that?

Oh, well, it depends. Are you looking for something general, such as an introduction like If Programming Then Read? Or maybe a more advanced guide on writing good code like Perfectly Performing Pony Programming Paradigms? Then again, perhaps you’re looking for something more theoretical on a specific topic like Seventy-Seven Set Sorting Solutions. Possibly even something more anecdotal like Tales From the Crypto.

Computer science is not something I’ve studied extensively since I’m more of a regular wizard and not a code wizard. However, I am versed in the theory of code breaking, which I have had use for when I cracked the code in that old Star Swirl book, as you might have read in previous issues. And I suppose I do also utilize optimization as well quite often, since I appreciate making things more efficient.

F: Oh wow, hi! I almost forgot these were a thing! How are ya doing, are ya good? I can’t believe I made you wait two months! I certainly wasn’t planning on disappearing off the face of Sweet Earth, but married life, ya feel me?

Jk, I’m not actually married. But I’m definitely still in a happy relationship! Been quite busy helping the boyfriend set up his own BerryTube and all, so I didn’t really consider making videos…it’s all quite new, and, not gonna lie, it was exciting as well. But now I’m back in full force…almost. I still need to think of an idea to introduce him to my channel as well, so stay tuned for that.

Now you wanted me to answer some Q’s, and instead I held a speech about my personal life, sorry. I guess you had to wait two months AND an hour now! But pet peeves…let me think. I’m usually a pretty chill guy, I don’t mind hate and stuff - who am I kidding, I do, but I’m content shaking it off - but I can’t stand it when people leave mean comments for my sister! Please, Blaze is the only good person left online, if you want to hate on her you literally have less than no life. You shouldn’t even exist, basically. When I’m tired, I sometimes get really sensitive regarding noises and voices and…having homicidal thoughts kind of freaks me out. And I can’t stand it if SOMEONE eats all the food in the house, which is what my dear boyfriend has been doing with the cereal. I swear I’ve been living off PB&J for weeks now!

As for traditions…I’m very fortunate to have a family that is alive and well and also willing to move things around in their schedule, so we always have dinner together on holidays. And my mum cooks, obviously. On my birthday, I’ve developed this thing where I release a video every birthday - since I started my channel the day I turned 13 - and I try to always include my family in a way, do a collab with one of them. I’ve had Blaze, obviously, my mum and zaza, as well as Jam and Jelly, my twin aunt and uncle. And great aunt Passion, I swear this woman is immortal!

A Guide to Setting Intentions

Being intentional in your life can change just about everything. If you sometimes feel that you’re just at the mercy of life, along for the ride, letting it direct you and not the other way around, then you may want to start living intentionally. The first thing you must do, and this actually isn’t so easy for many of us, is get clear on what you want. You may think you know what you want, but sometimes these things are transitory and surface-level, things that we think will make us happy. You may also be totally aware that you have no idea what you want in life.

But there’s probably something that’s always been in your mind and in your heart. A dream that you’ve always had - and it doesn’t need to be some great thing, I think sometimes we ignore our heart’s desires because we’re looking for some grand thing, or we’re looking for some socially-accepted thing to want. A desire that would make us money, a desire that would make us seem accomplished, a desire that seems interesting to others. These things aren’t unworthy of wanting, but you must make sure they are what you truly want. Because wanting to fit in or be accepted may be at odds with your life’s true destiny. The universe can sniff out unauthentic desire. Either it won’t give it to you, or it will and you’ll realize you don’t actually want it… Or you’ll still be unsatisfied, looking for the next thing.

I’m going to borrow from Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map and say that it’s important to figure out how you want to feel in life. When we focus so much on outside goals, we distance ourselves from the fulfillment of them. For instance, if you want a promotion, well ask yourself why. How would it make you feel? If you think it will do away with your inferiority complex, then you’re living your life one band-aid at a time, rather than building something new. Maybe you don’t really need that promotion in order to feel better. But if you can tell that it’s coming from a true place, a true desire to move up in your career, a desire to feel accomplished, independent, etc etc, then allow yourself to want it. Sometimes that’s the most important part - admitting our desires. If you don’t let yourself want it, you won’t let yourself have it.

Next, you must simply ask for it. Ask the universe, inform them of your intention to have that promotion (or whatever it is). Truly trust in the universe, in its ability to provide for you. The universe is on your side (or God, or your inner power, or your higher self, however you want to think of it - basically whatever is most powerful to you). And then you must rest assured in the timely delivery of the results. Know that the universe will answer your call, and live as if it is coming or already there. Cultivate whatever feeling you desire, in the present moment. If you’ve been wanting to feel more adventurous, you don’t have to wait for an opportunity to go sky diving. Take small actions that will let you feel that way, you could probably feel adventurous alone in your room if you get creative.

You don’t have to wait to feel your desired feelings. And when it comes to drawing bigger things into your life (success, love, money, whatever it is), you have to be direct with the universe. Tell them what you want and begin living your life as if it has already come. Practice imagining the fulfillment of your desire, imagine your dreams have already come true. That feeling you’re cultivating will draw in more things that will help you feel that way.

When we set an intention, we are telling the universe how the day, or month, or year will go. We are deciding for ourselves. You do not need to be a victim of outer circumstance. You have more power than you know.

And know that you deserve it. A lot of us live our lives with an unconscious belief that we don’t really deserve to be happy, that suffering is more natural. While suffering can teach us lessons and build strength, we can also learn lessons through pleasurable experiences. Sometimes the biggest lesson is letting yourself have that pleasure and happiness. And finding out what makes you happy - because it’s different for everyone. Honor your needs. Honor your desires. And honor your ability to have them. We are all creators, here on Earth. The builders of our own fate. Let your true desires be your compass, be led by that which is in the heart.

i don’t use any other “social media” besides tumblr so maybe this is a realization many people have already had and i’m just understanding this now, but someone just showed me the vast number of emoticons / emojis one can use on facebook and we were talking about how those emojis can be used on their own to communicate so many things…which is really cool but also makes me so fucking angry because like do people realize that that’s basically a form of AAC? 

like, it’s not that different than a communication board or whatever with pre-set images one can select to communicate various emotions or thoughts - the difference here being that because emojis aren’t seen as AAC and aren’t only used by disabled people, they are treated really differently and people think emojis are fun and cool and use them as a convenient way to communicate things without having to necessarily attach words to it…whereas PECS boards or other similar AAC things - including apps that work on iPhones or iPads or whatever  - are mostly treated as “special” and often pitiable or whatever and that’s just like?? 

to be clear, I’m super glad that it has become so much more possible to express oneself using little pictures of pizza and cats and rainclouds, but if you’re gonna use emojis / pictures to tell other people stuff, maybe also consider that doing so is a fucking valid form of communication 

anonymous asked:

Hey! So idk if you're taking requests but on the off chance that you are, do you have any more headcanons for the YouTube au? I enjoyed the first one sooo much and now I'm way too invested - like would Marinette ever make a channel? Alya? Nino? (P.s. Congrats on finishing tangled ribbons dude!!! It was unbelievably cute and well written and fun and ahhh I've got a lot of love for it!)

YEAH MY DUDE I LOVE THIS AU LETS DO THIS!!!

(i had a bunch of these written down a While Ago but i forgot about them rip im sorry) also??? i cant believe i finished tangled ribbons?? constantly in awe that thats done 

part one

  • adrien covering ed sheeran songs
    • this is super random but i think it’s important
    • (this was written before the new album but my point stands)
  • nino helps adrien set up a better mic system once he finds out about the youtube thing
    • it becomes a Thing™️️ where they get together and talk about tech and adrien will film a video or two and then they’ll sit on the couch and watch movies or binge anime and pig out on ice cream
    • they keep doing it once adrien is just as well versed in audio equipment as nino is
  • nino geeks out over adrien’s camera
  • adrien totally gets the camera that ninos been eying for ages when he needs to replace his, because nino helps him with recording so often. nino almost cries when he first holds it

(this got kinda long)

And yet another follow-up because I just realized something else:

Why did the Mastermind even set up this mutual killing game? Because the “reality TV Dangan Ronpa” is what “the audience” wanted…namely US.

So, what would’ve happened if Kaede had remained the protagonist? We would have gotten exactly the “mutual killing game” we had so eagerly anticipated with NDRV3′s release…and thus the Mastermind would ALSO have gotten what SHE wanted, because she AND WE THE AUDIENCE wanted our dramatic “solve the mutual killing game” plot.

Now, what happens in chapter 1? Our heroic, confident, sweet-hearted leader protagonist gets killed off, and we’re angry. We’re getting that bland Shuuichi instead? What kind of mutual killing game could HE solve? Give us back Kaede!

So, first thing Shuuichi does as the protagonist? Make Us, The Audience, Angry Because He Robs Us Of The Story We Wanted.

Fast-forward to chapter 6′s trial. What does Shuuichi do? He stops playing along, failing a couple of mini-games. And in the game itself, the audience gets mad and outright HACKS INTO Kiibo to try to force Shuuichi to continue, which makes Kiibo the final Talk Action Battle. This mirrors how angry WE are that Shuuichi refuses to complete his heroic role. How DARE he not continue?! How DARE he not complete the murderous game we all wanted!

Why it’s no wonder that Kaede was killed off to make room for Shuuichi–even all the way back in chapter 1, Shuuichi did exactly what he needed to do to Ruin Our Mutual Killing Game–he robbed us of what we wanted and made us mad.

You know, I was telling everyone not to give up on NDRV3 in an earlier post, but I was wrong yet again. We actually WERE supposed to think the plot of this game was awful! We were supposed to get mad and quit and be done with the entire franchise! And when we did, the bloodshed would stop and the Mastermind would be robbed of what she wanted.

Ironically, Shuuichi actually DID make NDRV3 suck–which is exactly what he NEEDED to do to truly stop the Mastermind’s mutual killing game.

Sketches I did during the stream of episode 62 of Critical Role (and posted on twitter while the show was going). Sort of but not quite in order (since I wanted a nice looking photo set, so had to shift things slightly).

I start teaching again on Thursdays come September, which makes me miss half the live show, so I wanted to try and make this last month of Thursday freedom as nice as I can, and figured that sketching stuff during the show would be an awesome thing to do. (Unfortunately sketching also makes me miss out on some descriptions, like the crocodile. Wasn’t paying very good attention during his entrance, so kinda fudged him. But, you do what you can.)

dysthymia is a really frustrating version of depression due to the fact that it manifests itself in a way that forces you to hide it from everyone you know so that they don’t even know that you need help
not saying major depression is not frustrating and shitty as well
but dysthymia can go unnoticed for so long and possibly never be diagnosed because of the lack of presentation of symptoms in social settings
which is really shitty
so like, sevenish years after onset, here i am getting diagnosed in august like oh okay that makes much more fucking sense than just thinking i was mega lazy and had zero motivation because i’m a shitty person
cause like, i want to DO so many things but it’s physically impossible to force myself to do them
and this is the first time i’ve posted about this on any sort of social media so if my followers that also follow me on other places could not mention it on those places that would be a+

seventeen hogwarts houses

this has been done so many times but I can never seem to find one I really agree with so I’m making my own with justifications ok.

this ended up at 1.8k which is more than i wrote for my last essay and if that doesn’t say something about my priorites and motivation then idk what does.

also last thing i promise but i do mtls for seventeen, bts, exo and knk so ask me stuff pls i rly enjoy doing it :)

alternatively; a surprisingly effective method of first learning about a kpop group, 10/10 would recommend.

AN: Time skip with saucy shit

Every day the sun rises in the East, and sets in the West - without fail. Each day seemed to get a bit easier adjusting to living in the 21st century, and living with the burden of being out of place from another time. Luckily, this burden was also shared with Steve. Four years had passed, and Steve Rogers continued with the Avengers as Captain America, also known as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. You, on the other hand, served most of your time in Washington, D.C. running the HQ HUB (courtesy of Director Fury) and would make fun of Steve for that.

“Who would’ve thought you’d be labeled as one of the “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”?”

“Funny, (Y/N).”

RockBand Poster PSA!

If you downloaded the Rockband Posters from my Chillroom set & they aren’t placing please Re-download & Replace! I fixed um 🙃

(Forgot I had recolored my taped-up advertisements & didn’t reclone the mesh)

Also one quick thing: Usually when I start out making cc, I’m making it for personal use & it’s only later that I decide to share if it seems to fit a lot or set I’m doing, so a lot of times I’ll miss things or make mistakes. Please, if something of mine isn’t working or isn’t placing don’t hesitate to send me a message!

Monsta X - New MV Thoughts

Ok Ok Ok. 

So I don’t know if it’s just me but the second this MV started playing the only thing I could think is, “Damn. Looks like some BTS shit.” 

Now, I love Monsta X. I really do. I also love BTS. (Multi-fan; sorry).

However, for the first half of this music video all I could do was make mental notes of when their style looked very FAMILIAR. 

The suits, the setting style in some shots, the multiple room thing they had going on, etc. I was pretty much infatuated by how similar it was to a BTS MV for the whole first half. In the second half they started to get a little more original with their outfits and style and shit.

THEN.

They pull out the cloth chokers. Granted, it was only in one shot, but still! It was like having my conspiracy theory proved right after I developed it! 

All in all, I was really impressed and entertained by the MV. 9/10.

One point lost for originality. 

RWBY V4 finale thoughts

I really liked that finale.

It had the right amount of heart for me. The Renora, Ruby and Qrow, Ruby writing to Yang, JN_R reflecting (with cold in the score, sob), Weiss leaving for better things, Blake preparing herself, Yang finally looking fine as the sun itself and doing something!

I, like many others, feel not much has happened but I also understand that not everything can always be exciting and amazing, and that shit needs to be set up (I bet people would complain there was no reason for things to happen if they got what they wanted smh).

But saying “nothing happened” is just silly. We learned about Weiss and Blake’s family. We learned why Weiss was such a bitch and why it’s important she’s changed. We learned that Blake chose to stay in the White Fang and abandon her parents in the process, making her story even more complicated and muddy. There’s more shit we learned but honestly I’m not going to spell it out for people at 4am. You can rewatch the episodes and note all the stuff we LEARNED about the world and the characters that was LACKING before.

Look at these kids.

Remember the ones we lost.

Move forward for the ones that are still with us.

If I could have a moment of your time...

I had such an amazing time at PAX, it was a lot of really hard work but it felt great getting to support Masquerada and meeting some of the team.

I’ve just come off pitching this game for three days straight, but I want to do this again for my followers (and maybe you’re sick of hearing me blab about this game, but bear with me here)

Here’s the thing - I’m not a developer, I’m just a fan of the game who flew from Florida to Boston to volunteer to support this game. It’s an amazing, beautiful, heartfelt story with incredible characters in a gorgeous, fantasy-Venetian setting that will absolutely suck you in and make you fall in love if you give it a chance. The description from the site gives a brief description a bit better than I can personally: 

“Masquerada is a single-player light RPG adventure where real-time combat can be paused for tactics with Venetian-styled masks that grant deadly magic. Overcome devious marauders & fey curiosities as you witness a riveting tale of masked mystery voiced by Matthew Mercer, Jennifer Hale, Felicia Day & more.“

I have personally already bought this game five times for friends and even random strangers (I did a giveaway a while ago) out of my own pocket to spread the word on this game and I’m really hoping to get it out more - not only because the game deserves every bit of attention it gets, but also to have more people to talk to about the game!You can get the game on PC or Mac (yeah! mac! wowie) through Steam and it will be available for PS4 soon.Please check out this game, I guarantee you’ll absolutely love it! 🙇  🙇  🙇
AND ANOTHER THING

If you want to donate to an organization - like the ACLU or PP - do that! But if your funds are finite (and whose aren’t), consider doing a smaller donation but making it recurring. Most orgs offer a monthly option - I looked at a few that also had weekly options. It’s very important for them to have continuous support as the dips and flows of public interest go, and if you just set it up now and forget it they’ll be able to count on it.

College Essential "Hacks"

This is kinda similar to my blog post “Things I Forgot/ Nearly Forgot to Bring to College”. In this blog post, I’ll be telling you things that you should definitely bring to college, and also some side advice.

Room:

A twin set fits fine on the twin extra long beds in the dorms. The difference between a twin & a twin XL is only a few inches in length. You honestly can’t tell that my bed set is a twin unless you really analyze it. It fits fine.

Mattress pads are awesome and they make the bed so much more comfortable. 

Bring light blankets. I don’t know about you but at home, I had those heavy, thick blankets. But don’t bring those. The blankets/ throws you find in a bed set will do. (**DEPENDS ON WHERE YOUR COLLEGE IS THOUGH**)

Bathroom: 

Bring shower sandals. Maybe even two pairs. They’re great for showering (a MUST-HAVE), but also work fine for a quick trip to the bathroom/ lounge/ etc. Shower sandals are basically just cheap flip-flops.
