and it REALLY limits what I can do

COAT: Forever21 TOP: Forever21 SKIRT: Target TIGHTS: H&M SHOES: Payless

Sorry I haven’t been posting. I’ve been working a lot, trying to save up money 😓. There hasn’t been time to do pictures…or really anything. Not to mention, my parents still haven’t sent me my old clothes yet so I’m pretty limited on what I can make do with. I rather just wait to post good things than to post a bunch of mediocre things (but I suppose there will be a lot of casual outfits until my clothes come). I’ve sketched up lots of coords! This outfit isn’t the kind of thing I’d preferably post on here but it’s still pretty cute! It was really windy and chilly out actually. 

Here’s welcoming September with open arms!

(verse 1)

降り初めた雪は足跡消して

the freshly fallen snow erases my footprints

真っ白な世界に // 一人の私

I’m alone in this pure-white world

風が心にささやくの

the wind whispers to my heart:

このままじゃ、// ダメなんだと。

“this will never do”

戸惑い、傷つき

confused, wounded,

誰にもうちあけずに // 悩んでた

troubled, without confiding in anyone

それももう // やめよう

that all ends here.

(chorus)

ありのままの // 姿見せるのよ

I’ll show who i really am

ありのままの // 自分になるの

I’ll become who i really am

何も怖くない

i’m not afraid of anything

風をふけ

let the wind blow

少しも寒くないわ

it’s not the least bit cold

(verse 2)

悩んでた言葉

the troubled words

うそみたいね

all seem like lies now

だってもう自由よ

i’m free

何でもできる

i can do anything

どこまでやれるか

what are my limits?

自分をためしたいの

i want to try myself

そうよ、変わるのよ // 

yes, I’m going to change

(chorus)

ありのままで

as i am

空へ風に乗って

i’ll ride the winds to the sky

ありのままで

as i am

飛び出してみるの

I’ll try to take flight

二度と涙は // 流さないわ

I won’t cry anymore

(bridge)

冷たく大地をつつみ込み

i embrace the cold earth,

高く舞い上がる // 思い描いて

my visions soar.

花咲く氷の結晶のように // かがやいていたい

I want to shine // like the blooming ice crystals

もう決めたの

I’ve already decided.

(chorus)

これでいいな

this is great

自分を好きになって

i’ve come to like myself

これでいいな

this is great

自分を信じて

i believe in myself

光 // 浴びながら // 歩き出そう

I’ll walk out // while bathed in sunlight

少しも寒くないわ

it’s not the least bit cold

  • Hunk: Hey, Keith, do you have any hobbies?
  • Keith: Swimming..
  • Hunk: Really? That's cool. I never expected you to-
  • Keith: In a pool of self hatred and regret.

If there isn’t already a nail polish color called “Vakarian Blue,” somebody needs to make one.

Those of you who are friends with me on Steam may have noticed that I played an embarrassing amount of Mass Effect 2 over the weekend (I’m only what–a couple years late to the party??).  Garrus x FemShep is my new obsession favorite thing, and so I took a break from commissioned work to do this.  Aaand it is now an ungodly hour of the morning, and I can’t make myself care about turian (or human, for that matter) anatomy anymore.  For some reason, bioware didn’t see fit to have Garrus in really any state of undress at any point in time in any of the games, so I had a pretty limited set of reference images to work with. :P

ANYWAY.  brb, going to sleep/drown in Shakarian feels forever

Several years ago, I worked as a director for an art gallery/broker. We had a number of people come in with different artwork looking for appraisals. Some turned out to be fairly valuable, most did not. This is one of those times.

Client: I have a painting and I would like to find out how much it is worth.

Me: No problem, I can definitely help you with that.

The client hands me the “painting” and I immediately recognize it as a cheap print of a semi-famous artist.

Me: I’m sorry to tell you this, but this isn’t actually a painting, it’s a print. And, because it isn’t signed or a limited edition, it isn’t really valuable.

Client: How do you know?

I was a little miffed that I had to explain that I was experience and knew what I was talking about, but hoping that they simply wanted to be educated.

Me: First, there is no texture from the paint. Second, it is on cardboard which no painter would ever do because it isn’t a quality substrate. But, most of all, (I hold up a magnifying glass to the print) do you see those dots?

Client: Yes.

Me: Those dots are created from the printing process.

Client: I don’t believe you. This has been in my family for a long time and I know it’s worth a lot of money!

Me: Well, I’ve given you the facts. If you think I’m wrong, feel free to take it somewhere else to get it appraised.

Client: I will because you are ridiculous and obviously don’t know what you’re talking about!

They left, refusing to believe that their “painting” was no more than a cheap print that you could buy at a garage sale for a buck.

What You Really Need to Bring to College (and What You Can Leave Behind)

It’s back to school time and every store is going to try to sell you on what you “need” to bring to school and honestly, you could do without most of it. Especially in your freshman year, you’re going to be very limited on space, but will worry about leaving something behind that you won’t be able to get later. Some of you live within easy driving distance of school, but lots go away to school each year and need to be prepared.

I went through lists of dorm room “essentials” and broke it down into what you actually need, what’s nice to have, optional items, and what you can do without. Obviously, every student is different and some of these won’t apply to you or you may need extra things, but this will help get you started.

#todayimet with @nyjah and @leticiabufoni

To see more photos and videos from the lives of skateboarding stars Nyjah Huston and Leticia Bufoni, follow @nyjah and @leticiabufoni on Instagram.

American skateboard superstar Nyjah Huston (@nyjah) and Brazilian skateboard champion Leticia Bufoni (@leticiabufoni) both love big air, skating rails and pushing their limits. “I would say our styles are pretty similar as far as work ethic and trying to push ourselves to do the hardest and biggest stuff we can,” says Nyjah. Leticia agrees on their similar styles but adds a caveat: “He skates big stuff, like really big stuff. I like big stuff but not as big as the stuff he skates.”

This weekend Nyjah and Leticia are each competing in the Skateboard Street events at the summer X Games (@xgames) in Austin, Texas. But it’s more than the awards and recognition that motivates them to progress as athletes. “What gets me up in the morning to keep skating, honestly is the progression of skateboarding,” says Nyjah. “There’s always new stuff to learn, and there’s always ways to get better at it. There’s so many ways to keep it fun,” he adds. Leticia feels the same way. “The skateboarding is the same, it’s the other things that are different,” she says. “Going out there and learning tricks, it’s the same. When I am at the skate park or at competitions it looks like I’m 10 years old again skating and having fun.”

I think it’s obvious what I have to do.  I’ve been fighting the impulses for so long.  But it’s time… (x)

You can’t tell me this isn’t the face Miles makes when he plans how to kill off our favorite characters.  Run, just run.

anonymous asked:

do you know where i can what season 1 and 2 of skam with english subtitles? I really wanna watch them when this one is over.

Season 1 

Season 2 part 1

Season 2 part 2

Season 3 (still airing)   or cardamom

OR THIS

Season 1 & 2 are on Google Drives and sometimes you might occur a problem which is that you’ve exceeded the playtime limit. It’s totally normal. For me, I’ll just wait until the next day to watch it but there’s a solution for it here 

If you have anymore problems, just go through the “skam english subtitles” tag here on tumblr.

Narry: Through the Years

Sooo, the other day a Non-Non asked me this:

If you could pick one Narry moment from each year the band has been together, what ones would you choose?

To which, I said:

Hi Non-Non! I have a bit of a problem…limiting myself when it comes to choosing Narry moments. (I tried to do a ‘Top 10’ one time and it turned into ‘Top 100+ and counting’.) Soo can I bargain for like…just favourite moments? I can work with max five from each year? :)

No, I’m really not even kidding or exaggerating when I say it’s next to impossible for me to choose between Narry moments. It’s SO HARD. It’s like, every time I think I’ve got it all figured out I think of something else and then I have rearrange everything. SO, without further ado (and before I can change my mind for the millionth time), here we go:

2010

- Narry Mullingar trip, and how they went from innocent little monkeys:

to [seemingly] naked…monkeys:

- Protective!Niall comforting Harry:

- Proud!Niall hugging bashful!Harry:

- Domestic!Narry doing laundry together:

- Possessive!Harry:

2011

- Niall wants to hold Harry’s hand:

- Harry can’t help himself:

- Harry says Niall looks like a furby:

(and then again in 2012!)

- “Ariiii babes”:

- The day Harry Styles made Narrie hearts melt all over the world:

2012

- Who’s the best kisser? “Niall!”

- Narry making kissy faces:

- Niall stroking Harry’s cheek:

- Flying Start; Clingy!Niall:

- Pt. 2 (because I honest to goodness couldn’t choose and this is one of the moments that had me):

- Narry talking about the time Harry got the Irish pummeled into him:

2013

- “You have the best face.”

- “I’m in love with you, and all Niall’s little things.”

- Miami!Narry:

(Narry getting off the boat together; Niall wearing Harry’s shoes and carrying his own…)

- 1D Day!Narry:

- Ballroom dancing/falling:

2014

- The moment ‘You & I’ became a Narry song too:

- Aria Awards:

- “I’d do Niall.”:

- Niall offering his nuts up for Harry:

- “That was for you!”

2015

- Cake pop!Narry:

- “We are the champions!”:

- “Yes, pet?”:

- “Everything we do!”:

(#1!)

- Mistletoe kiss:

Emotions are more stubborn than thoughts. The glue that holds you fast to your beliefs and expectations is emotion. Whenever you tell yourself that you can’t let go, you are making an emotional statement.

In reality you can let go of any situation any time. “I can’t” really means, “I fear the emotional consequences if I do.” Your ego draws a line in the sand and insists that you will not survive the inner feelings that will arise if the line is crossed.

A powerful limitation is being self-imposed here, and at bottom it isn’t true. You will survive any emotion; indeed, whatever you consider to be too much fear, too much loss, too much humiliation, too much disapproval, too much rejection has already happened.

You have crossed the line many times, otherwise you wouldn’t know where to draw it. What your ego is really saying is that you can’t cross the line again. From spirit’s point of view, however, you don’t have to.

OH SNAP IT’S A REAL THING YOU CAN BUY and my shop is so bad wow!

HOWEVER I only have 40 card envelopes at the moment, so this is a very limited edition test run of the printed comic! All comics are signed by me, and while you could go and buy all 40 at once I would ask that you limit yourself to one copy each so it’s fair on other people m'kay. All printed on A4 high quality paper and in a super shiny glossy cover- they’re about the same size as a Tintin comic book if that helps for scale.

I’ll be selling more eventually, so when this batch has sold out don’t worry you will have a chance later, and there will be an option to have the comic signed then too, but I will add a small fee for it (because my hand is useless and in pain).

But yeah man go nuts.

god plays dice / billy kaplan (wiccan) / by aud koch

* * *

I really really like Billy Kaplan, but it’s more that i like what Marvel could be doing with his character than what they’re actually doing.  — because it feels like Marvel doesn’t have a damn clue what to do with him, most especially when it comes to his powers (but also when it comes to his family situation).  Is he this powerful being capable of warping the fabric of reality or is he this dumb kid who can’t get away from a gun to the head and can’t use his powers if he can’t hear his own voice?  (Like, seriously, WTF?)  It’s like no one knows for sure what he can or can’t do, and so the different writers create different arbitrary limits for his powers that don’t make any sense and aren’t compatible.

It’s really. frustrating. to me, because i think there’s an incredibly cool and incredibly easy explanation of his powers that they could go with:  all that Billy does is manipulate the rules of probability in (Quantum) Physics.

Right?  Okay, because what Quantum Physics tells us is that pretty much anything is possible — it’s just not terribly probable.  It’s entirely possible that every single atom on Earth will spontaneously disappear and reappear somewhere else in the universe, and it is possible to travel at superluminal speeds, and it’s possible that the entire universe will suddenly collapse into a massive black hole.  Possible, not probable. 

But if Billy had the power to see & tweak these probabilities — the ability to manipulate the essence of matter —, he could cause all sorts of weird-ass stuff to happen, and you can bet that there would be an insane learning curve for that sort of thing.  (Plus, it would explain the electricity thing because i bet manipulating electromagnetism — which is pretty much just the movement of electrons — would be a lot easier than manipulating other aspects of physics that deal with protons and neutrons and muons etc. etc.)

Anyway, that’s my idea for Billy’s powers, and i’m sticking with it.

This is   ;  F a t e ♥(˘◡˘ )

So This is a game, where each member picks someone and buys him a gift without revealing who he was to anyone til the end. Somehow Taehyung got himself when he picked a paper and Namjoon was the only left member to pick, which explains why Tae knows his secret friend. What I really like about this moment, is the game of fate in here; as you can see taehyung liked those bracelets and you see on the other side, Namjoon bought him very similar ones! :’)  even tho he said He won’t find what will please Tae! Isn’t this just beautiful?

Now repeat with me:  VMON is love VMON is life VMON is love VMON is life
