how do you keep the image quality good on tumblr? like it looks good in photoshop and whatnot but once i try to upload it it looks kinda fuzzy??? thxx

(this works for me idk about u)

I get this question so much ok, you can’t just make your edit any size and then expect it to look good on tumblr. The best width to use if you’re just posting one picture is 540 px and the max height that can go is 810 px. If you wanna have 2 edits beside each other the max width is 268px and the max height is 600px. And then if you want 3 beside each other go with 177px wide and max 400px height. Here is a post with it all laid out if you’re more into visual things.

I hope this answers your question and please! don’t ask this anymore because I have answered this maybe about 4 times now so :^) I’m tired :^)

You’re the cutest, both of you! I wish I could hug you right now. Thank you for those messages, really. You’re angels and kind people. I’m honored you took time to write me such wonderful words. I wish you both a very good day and an happy life. ღ

“You love me, right?”

“What did you do?” Lucy asked, dipping her spoon into her mug of tea. Wait, no that was her pen. Dammit, not again. 

“Lushi,” Natsu whined, throwing himself over her shoulders. Lucy was thankful that he was too busy being dramatic to notice her slip up. He already lectured her about overworking herself as it was. “I didn’t do anything.”

“Then why are you asking such a silly question?” Lucy asked, clicking her pen and writing down another plot point she wanted to add to the next chapter. She liked the noise of her pen moving over paper, it felt more real than her keyboard clicking as she typed.

“I dunno.” He mumbled, pulling away and slinking to her bed. Concern flashed in Lucy’s mind, her notebook forgotten on her desk as she swiveled in her chair to look at Natsu. “Just wanted to make sure, I guess.” he said into his scarf, sitting cross-legged in the center of the bed. Lucy stood from her desk without thinking, sitting next to him and wrapping her arms around his shoulders. 

“I love you Natsu, talk to me.”

Lucy sighed under her breath when he shrugged his shoulders, pulling him against her chest. “You haven’t said it for a week.”

“Whar?” Lucy asked, pulling back and gawking at Natsu. 

“You haven’t said you loved me in a week,” he repeated, eyes fixed on her arm. 

“Oh, Natsu. I love you. Of course I love you, my silly dragon,” Lucy cooed, hugging him tightly to her chest and burying her face in his hair. “I’m sorry I got distracted ith work and my novel and school. I love you so much Natsu, even if I forget to say it sometimes.”

“Okay,” Natsu said, arms curling tight around her middle as he nuzzled more into her. Lucy laid back on the bed, running her hands through his pink and fluffy hair. She smiled when she felt his fingers rub soft circles on her skin where she shirt didn’t cover her. For as tough as Natsu acted -and was-, she forgot how much he needed reassurance too sometimes. Reassurance that she would give over and over again.

Hi! So I was just wondering whether you read books in your target language(s) to help you when you were learning them, and if so, where did you get them from? I'm learning Danish, Korean and Japanese and struggling to find a website / store where I can buy books written in any of my target languages. Help or advice would be hugely appreciated!!

i get almost all my books from secondhand bookstores here in sydney, but if you have a specific book in mind then you’ll probs be able to find it by looking on ebay, amazon or bookdepository
if you still can’t find what you want you can always pay a native speaker friend to buy whatever it is you want in a bookstore in their country and post it to you, or you could even do an exchange where you both each other a book you’ve already bought and read in your native language (i would totally do this if postage from australia wasn’t so expensive)

I'm the anon asking abt depression. Did to get my ask?? Did you answer it? Sorry for bothering you.

you’re not a bother in the slightest, anon, i’m so sorry for not getting to it sooner. 

i’m also sorry that you can’t take meds, as they are really truly helpful, but!! there’s loads of other options! i think the other best thing you can do is get a therapist. i think that if you phrase it to the adults/caretakers in your life that you’re just having a rough time, not because of anything in particular, but you’d like to see someone to have someone to talk to about it! I highly, highly doubt any sort of legal action of any kind will be undertaken — people seeking therapy, even those without depression or other mental health issues, is very common! Everyone has things they need to talk to someone about. So that’s my first thing!

Outside of that, I highly recommend exercise — there is nothing like putting on some angry, intense music and sweating your butt off for like an hour. has amazing workouts, of all kinds, all different themes, all free! and then, of course, if you’re into something a bit more light-hearted but still just as intense, and having someone along to encourage you, I love blogilates on YouTube. Cassey is a gem. And alongside that comes eating well — which can be really tricky when you’re depressed and hardly have the energy to exist let alone meal prep for the week. So I recommend having like, 3 recipes that you go to that are decently clean, comforting, and minimal energy. For me, that’s stir-fry, my oatmeal, and a green smoothie. 

And take note of the things that bring you joy (even the little things, like having a cup of tea!!) and try your best to make yourself go through those actions when you’re feeling really shit. Like make a cup of a tea, throw on a face mask, go on a Game Grumps binge on YouTube, whatever makes you relax and makes things a bit easier. 

I’m wishing you the best anon. <3333

Yesssssss Christi. Here is an insert from an interview from 2012 where she supports her claim.

“Well, there was a casting put out – you know a casting company in LA that was looking for dance moms across the country; and I think that their concept was that they were going to have a few dance moms across the country that all came together at nationals and competed. And so, I answered the casting call and sent a photograph of myself and my daughter and I sent some flip videos in. You know I was sitting on my front porch and I was talking about how crazy my dance studio was — you know the moms and said that our little kids were really talented. So the producer kept calling me back and asked me could I send in anymore videos. And I said “sure!” I have a friend named Kelly, so I sent in videos of Kelly; and they said can you send in your daughter; I sent in videos of Chloe auditioning. Then he called me back a few days later and said could you ask your dance teacher to do something on film – can we see her? And I sent in a video of Abby approaching Chloe. Like I was part of “Dance Moms” from the very beginning.”

But Abby swears up and down that she created the show to make maddie a star. Abby is so ungrateful.

Hello! I want to go Into 2D animation but there isn't a animation school that is close to me in Britain.. And whenever I go to college I can't seem to stick at it (I have mental health problems..) But anyway, I was wondering if you could help me with learning the basics/ giving me tips so I can get started on teaching myself, it be much appreciated if you could point me in the right direction c:

Hi there! Sorry I did not respond to your question sooner, thank you for taking the time to ask. :) 

The best tip to get started in learning 2D/hand drawn animation is learning how to construct a bouncing ball (click on the link to see posts on my blog on this topic). As simple as a ball is to animate, it will help you understand how to animate using at least 9-10 of the 12 Principles of Animation. From learning how to create a bouncing ball, it will help you get into more complicated animation (with the understanding of animation from the bouncing ball exercises). I would say learning the 12 Principles of Animation and applying them to your animation and drawings will help you have an animated mind.

There are two books that many animation students use in their respected classes: Cartoon Animation by Preston Blair and The Animator’s Survival Kit by Richard Williams. Both books are recommended by animation students and animation professionals alike, and that you can reference when it comes to acting, Staging, and doing some effects. 

Another tip: Reference often. Study how people move by sketching their actions (if you’re at a library, church, coffeehouse, or even the gym). If you’re watching live tv/film, sketch their motion (don’t worry about every detail of the person, get as much as you can). It will help you feel the motion before you start animating. You can even watch YouTube videos (just don’t pause the video to sketch a pose - let it play in real time. If you have to rewind, that’s fine), and sketch the motion. The more you reference, the better idea you have to create an animation based on it. You can reference other animation artists too to see how they animate. 

Finally: Animate often! Even if it’s at least 5-10 frames a day, try animating something, play it back, and analyze what is working and what is not working. Animation is very tough, and if you stick with it, you get better and better. 

Feel free to ask any more questions if you have any, and also, post your work! :) We would love to see your progress!

By all means, thank you for not following me, as I’d hate to have someone like you on my blog. Feel free to call me disgusting, I agree, but you have no reason to drag my entire race into this.

With all due respect, please stay away. I’d like it if I didn’t have people like you tainting my blog with your racism.

i absolutely adore your writing!! anyone with Montparnasse and "shh, c'mere"?

T.T Thank you!

Who burned the message into their children’s clothes?
Who shot them down instead of holding close?
Who set their hopes and dreams ablaze
Whilst in the same vein asking, What’s wrong with kids these days?

He shouldn’t have been snooping, but Jehan had left their journal out on the bed. Open.

He was never good at keeping out of things that were off bounds, but he hadn’t meant to snoop- really.

It had started with flicking through the pages absentmindedly. A wave of colour rippling through his hands as he rifled through the pages. He would have just left it there, he could have just left it there, putting the journal back onto the pillow and continuing to tidy up the room. 

But a page had snagged him and engrossed him and he hadn’t been able to look away. Whilst all the other pages were filled with colours and little scribbles and doodles and markings, this page consisted of black pages and white writing. It wasn’t Jehan’s usual slightly curly handwriting. It was scrawly and tilted to the right as though written in a furious speed.

He could have left it. He could have shut the pages and put it down. Until he saw the title. ‘Mother/Father”. 

Jehan never talked about their parents. On Christmases and holidays they always stayed in the city with one of the members of their found family instead. Reading the rest of their poem, Montparnasse now knew why, and his heart was breaking.

“It’s not as dramatic as my journal makes it seem.” Montparnasse jumped at their voice and turned around to see his partner, standing in the doorway. 

“Shit, Jehan- I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to-”

“It’s alright.” Jehan said with a shrug. The usual pep in their voice lost as they walked towards Montparnasse. “My poems aren’t private.”

Montparnasse looked onto them, trying to read their face. “Is it alright?”

Jehan didn’t have to ask if they were still talking about the journal.

They shrugged again. “I try not to think too much about them. We haven’t spoken since I was eighteen.”

“Have you tried to talk to them?”

“I gave up after about the hundredth unanswered call.” Jehan said with a hollow laugh. “Why bother chasing something that would rather forget about you?”

“Shhh, c’mere.” Montparnasse said softly, pulling them in tightly towards him and stroking their hair.

Jehan laughed again, sounding more like themselves this time. “It’s really okay. I worked through it years ago. The poetry helped.”

“I know.” Montparnasse said, not letting them go. “Just let me hold you, okay?”

“Okay.” Jehan said, nuzzling their head against his chest. 

Montparnasse didn’t want to tell them just yet that he needed the hug just as much as he believed Jehan did. Today wasn’t the day to talk about his parents. But that was the thing about poetry- it cuts through you and opens up scars that you thought were long ago healed. 

Broken Promises

Whoops! I know I hoped to do the next episode tonight, but it looks like I’m gonna be a touch busy later on, not to mention you guys have an hour special to deal with tonight, right? So! Next episode tomorrow instead! For now, I’m gonna answer some asks and beg for your forgiveness. ❤

anonymous asked:

Hey, so I'm out and proud about being ace, but my parents don't get it no matter how much I explain it. And when we get into it, they either scoff and ask "why does everyone need a label now?", or say "this is making my head hurt, let's just not right now.", and they instantly assume I'll like a gay character from something simply because they're gay. I've basically taken to avoiding LGBTQIA+ talk around them, and it's really discouraging. Help!

that’s highkey rude?? yes everyone wants/needs a label bc the human brain is programmed to have issues comprehending nothingness so no one is ever satisfied with having no label. we always want answers.

plus, your sexuality/gender is not a defining factor. gay people can be the rudest assholes you’ve ever met. a trans person could be incredibly racist. your sexuality/gender does not determine who you are as a person.

try to use analogies if you need to help explain to them, and if they want to brush it off then tell them they’re not being good/supportive parents.


Tbh I said I wasn’t gonna work on this multiple amulet but guess what I lied and Im actually really into this idea I probably wont draw it as much as the roleswap but heres a page of doodles that I’ve been adding to the past couple days

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for all of your support for my strange trollhunters AUs I love and appreciate every ask yall send me I plan to get through answering every single one of them at some point this summer

Can I request a story in the Designation: Miracle verse? If you want to, I'd love to see Takao mentioning to the Miracles Boyfriends Club that Shin-chan often compares him to Kuroko and the others discussing if Takao is or isn't like Kuroko - I personally think Himuro would at least see where Midorima is coming from

“Your playing style is a little bit like Kuroko and Taiga,” Himuro remarks and Takao can’t stop himself from scowling. “You don’t like the comparison?”

They’re having lunch at Maji Burger in between games for the Tokyo InterHigh. Himuro, Takao gathers, is only here briefly to bid everyone good luck and for the “obligatory Miracle Boyfriends Club meeting” that usually just consists of Takao, Kagami and Furihata having lunch. Kasamatsu, who has graduated and actually is in Tokyo and could much more feasibly stop by for a hello, did not make an appearance. (Takao suspects he does not take his club responsibilities seriously. He’ll have to be removed from his position as Vice President).

“Would you like it if Murasakibara compared you to Kuroko?” he replies.

Himuro laughs—a quiet, polite sort of sound— “No, when you put it like that. Does Midorima compare you to Kuroko a lot, then?”

“He used to,”  Takao acknowledges that he hasn’t heard the comparison lately, and even though he knows where Midorima’s admiration from Kuroko is coming from, he still chafes slightly at being thought of similar. (Perhaps, he thinks snidely to himself, you just don’t want to be a Kuroko substitute. Which would be absurd, he tries to reason back with himself. It’s not like he’s competing with Kuroko where Midorima is concerned.)

“I can see it,” Himuro allows. “There are similarities.”

“Dude, he is nothing like Kuroko,” Kagami says. He’s speaking with a mouth full of like, five hamburgers, so it’s a bit disgusting, but Takao beams at him anyway, feeling gratified.


“There’s nothing wrong with being similar to Kuroko’s basketball style, though,” Furihata says, frowning. “And I think you and Midorima work really well together, so I think that’s cool. I think it’d be awesome if anyone thought I was like Kuroko—why are you guys staring at me like that?’

“You guys” means Himuro and Takao, since Kagami is largely indifferent to this conversation and still has nine hamburgers left to eat.

“No reason,” Himuro says, easily and disarmingly. Takao admires that about the older man—he’s got a very good poker face. Takao just drinks from his soda in what he hopes in a nonchalant manner.

It is easy to forget that Furihata wasn’t there from the beginning, and he hadn’t been at the hospital that night the Miracles revealed why they were all hung up on Kuroko. And not going to the same school as Akashi, he probably didn’t ever have that brief period of wondering that everyone else had about whether or not his Miracle was in love with Kuroko.

“Nothing you need to worry about, Furihata,” Takao says. “You don’t play on the same team as Akashi, so it won’t ever come up.”

“I suppose not. And I don’t think I could do what Kuroko or Mayuzumi does anyway,” Furihata says.

Takao is glad they change the subject after that, though. No reason to give the guy a Kuroko-complex if he doesn’t have one.

A/N: Thanks for the prompt, friend, anon-friend!! I’m not sure Takao has to deal with being compared to Kuroko much these days, but it was an interesting thing to explore! Sorry it took so long!! =D 

anonymous asked:

May I ask what makes you believe in astrology? Like, what is your reasoning for how the alignment and movement of celestial bodies could influence individuals or dictate who they are? I'm really not trying to be rude, and I don't mean to ridicule or mock anyone for believing in astrology. I'm simply curious about how those who believe in astrology view it and what possible valid evidence you could have for it being real. Thank you for answering my question (if you do) and have a good day :-)

the ~valid evidence I have for it being real is that there’s no proof against except those who haven’t defined it correctly and that learning about it has always been accurate and I’m at point where I can talk to a parent and know what moon sign their kid has, or someone can tell me about their childhood and I can guess their moon or guess an aspect someone has by how they behave or spot a taurus just by looking at them or how I could tell a lady had a cancer mars by a GIF and another after watching a 3 minute video or when I watched a holocaust survivor talk and mention her mum for only 2 seconds of that story but I could tell the bond they had meant she had a cancer moon…everything is proof!

but I don’t see it like that, personally I think the power of thought is much more powerful than we think that’s why things like the law of attraction works and why you have to be careful what you wish for.

I think we created astrology because of something that was already there and the universe/higher powers acted accordingly. which makes even LESS sense to astrology skeptics but it’s what I’ve come to believe after years of learning about this kind of stuff


Don’t try to make me stay
Or ask if I’m okay
I don’t have the answer
Don’t make me stay the night
Or ask if I’m alright
I don’t have the answer.

Heartache doesn’t last forever
I’ll say I’m fine
Midnight ain’t no time for laughing
When you say goodbye.

It makes your lips so kissable
And your kiss unmissable
Your fingertips so touchable
And your eyes irresistible.

I’ve tried to ask myself
Should I see someone else?
I wish I knew the answer.

But I know, if I go now, if I leave
Then I’m on my own tonight
I’ll never know the answer.

Midnight doesn’t last forever
Dark turns to light
Heartache flips my world around
I’m falling down, down, down,
That’s why.

I find your lips so kissable
And your kiss unmissable
Your fingertips so touchable
And your eyes irresistible

It’s in your lips and in your kiss
It’s in your touch and your fingertips
And it’s in all the things and other things
That make you who you are and your eyes irresistible.

It makes your lips so kissable
And your kiss unmissable
Your fingertips so touchable
And your eyes, your eyes, your eyes,
Your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
