Trust me when I say that every day I am honestly baffled at the amount of love and support I get here. Never in my life would I have expected this. Every time I gain a new follower I think ‘What? Why would you want to follow me????’
But guys, I am so so so thankful. A year ago I thought no one would like my stuff and I quit every project I tried to make. The amount of confidence you guys make me feel is through the roof.
I always wanted to make a follower special or something but I have no idea what to do. So for now, I just want to thank you for everything you have done for me. Slowly, I am getting better, I’m starting to really live my life again. Thank you <3
Also, I want to get to know you guys a little better!
I sometimes feel so impersonal here because I keep thinking that maybe you don’t want that kinda stuff on your dash. But, I’m starting to accept that hey, this is my blog! And I’ll take a personal and genuine blog over a bot one any day.
So, if you’d like, you can send me an ask if you have any questions, requests or just to tell me about your day!
Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, you’re all awesome :)
“Actually, yes, he has! Papyrus is feeling a lot happier, knowing I’m feeling better - here’s a drawing of Hankerin he did this week.
Hank still lives in the lab basement, but things are a lot more comfortable down there nowadays.”
“We got him a bed - or at least a lightly used second-hand mattress, and some clean blankets. There’s also a little TV, and a few other things. And we sometimes stop by and say hello - but it’s in his nature to keep to himself, so we try not to disturb him too often.”
“Mostly I’m just glad he’s happy, and that he’s getting along better with G… ”
If you’re scrolling through tumblr trying to distract yourself from something you don’t want to think about or you’re looking for a sign that everything will be okay, this is it. So, breathe. Relax into this moment. You’re alive & that’s all that matters.
So I was thinking about music earlier in a Earth is Space Austraila/Humans Are Space Orcs kind of way
Humans have a way of singing that if you are not careful can permanently damage your vocal cords
Humans are incredible mimics
Whenever we hear “This song can’t be sung by humans” we Immediately go “lol” and do it anyway
Humans have a wide variety in which they can pitch their voices naturally, Freddie Mercury being a shining example of this (even though he is an outlier)
Likewise some people’s voices are naturally super high pitched or super fucking deep, there’s a lot of factors in human vocals
Which got me thinking about how varied music would be in some Galactic Federation type of thing. How interpersonal relationships may be affected by a human hearing a song that is from a species that maybe descended from birds and a human is dancing and singing in the breakroom to some Avian Boy Band just nailing the lyrics.
A alien crewmate walking in to find that one of their human crewmates are trying extremely hard to sing this song that, as far as anyone could tell, isn’t possible for them to do but What would you Know they’re getting better and better and might just be able to Do It
People who are singers have to have amazing breath control because of famously long notes in various songs and are able hold them and keep on going where as a human who doesn’t have that same kind of practice or an alien that just might not be able to do it it would be really impressed at this.
I know you’re in pain. It hurts in ways you can’t even begin to describe and even if you could, no one seems to want to listen. Sure, people care and try to help… for a time… but when you don’t seem to be getting any better, after a while, they get tired of listening… Eventually it becomes easier to keep it all inside.
I know you feel like it will never get better and you’ll never be okay again. It’s been like this for so long now that you think if things were ever going to change they would have by now so this is how it’s always going to be… but it’s not. I promise it’s not. You learn cope, it just takes time and I know it feels like you’ve given it enough time already but not everyone heals at the same pace.
Tell yourself it’s okay to feel the way that you do. Nobody else on this earth has lived through your life to be in any kind of position to understand your battles. Nobody else but you has walked in your shoes to be any kind of comparison on how you should be feeling right now or whether or not you should be ‘better’. I won’t lie to you – what you’re going through will always leave its mark upon you as any trauma does – and that’s normal too. Nobody looks back on a traumatic life experience and giggles about it… But it’s this all-consuming depressive state… these overwhelming feelings you can’t control… the way those feelings isolate you and make you feel vulnerable and alone – THAT is what won’t last forever.
It DOES get better… you DO find acceptance. Not all at once – its gradual… like a stormy day or a long dark night… you don’t just blink and suddenly it’s a blue sky. Storm clouds part slowly, allowing brief flashes of sunlight at first… then eventually disappear… Dark nights end slowly as a new day begins to dawn… Acceptance is the same… and I know you have the courage to wait for it…
1. Stop fantasising: Those with too rosy a picture of the future tend to put less effort into reaching their goals. Instead, it’s better to be open to some things going wrong. It will help you see the obstacles - and think through beating them.
2. Visualise process NOT outcome: If you can think through all the steps you will forge a better plan … and it will also help to reduce anxiety.
3. Beware of the “what-the-hell effect”: Too many just give up when they stumble or fall down. For example, think of all the dieters who binge at the first hurdle. It’s better to get up – and to see it as a journey.
4. Attack procrastination: It’s easy to procrastinate when things start getting tough. Make a start, keep your head down, and set yourself some deadlines. Once you start you’ll feel much better and the road won’t seem so hard.
5. Switch out of robot mode: A lot of behaviour is robotic and habitual. We copy other people or we do the same old things. Take stock … and change those patterns … if they don’t lead to your goals.
6. Know when enough is enough: Sometimes we need to know when there’s no point in going on. We’re flogging a dead horse and thing are never going to change. Perhaps it’s time to make that break, and to work on something else.
if you catch yourself getting discouraged, look at your old art. look at how much you’ve improved. look for the things you enjoy about your art. being able to appreciate your own growth is so important
you’re not in competition with anyone! there’s no rush. if you keep drawing, you’ll never stop getting better. don’t give up! keep having fun and doing your best no matter what anyone else says!
no offense but i legitimately just got teared up bc i was thinking about how Brendon (Urie, yes) is gonna be like One Of The Greats to so so so many people, he has that whole vibe to him and what he does is… so amazing.. hes slowly becoming not only more comfortable and better with what he does, but also more and more recognized and like, this guy was gonna run off n be a lil emo hairdresser, and now hes become such an influence to so many people and he will continue to be that and years from now people will still be talking about him with such excitement and passion, i just know it, and wow i’m getting emotional. I love this guy.
