I mean… it’s just I’ve not seen any improvement within my own art for a few years now. While this might be just me - that’s just how I see my art. 

And for me - I’m a perfectionist. And someday I really want to perfect my style. At least to a point where I can make things other than humans or humanoid creatures. Cause while I’m okay in that, I can’t draw backgrounds, objects, variety of body types, animals, mythical animals, just - a lot of stuff. So I hope to focus on some of that more plus when I start making some smaller comics!

I really liked Divide, but I can't forget the feeling that Ed isn't the same anymore. I mean, his songs are still good, but you can see that they're so much more commercial now and that makes me kinda sad. I had the same feeling when Multiply came out because of Sing and Don't. That's why Plus will always be my favorite one. What do you think?

What I think is a lot of people seem to be upset that Ed is more successful now than he used to be, and that just doesn’t make any sense to me. Did you become a fan because you thought Ed was a talented musician or because you liked being able to say his name without everyone immediately recognizing it? Now that he’s more popular than before, that doesn’t mean that the quality of his music has decreased. If anything, the music has improved through his growth of experience and his increased opportunities to learn from and collaborate with other extremely talented artists. All he has done is gotten better as a songwriter and as a performer and now you’re sad because his music is doing well with a wider audience? 

I don’t get it. 

If something has commercial value, then that means that it can be sold because people will want it. So what you’ve literally said here is that you like the album and you can tell that more people will want to buy these songs than his previous songs. I don’t see a down side to that. And you know, it’s not just you who is saying this. Ed’s also getting ripped by other fans and by the media over his songs being “too commercial” and it’s honestly one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. How is it even possible for music to be too commercial? It’s worth too much on the market? Too many people will want to buy it? It’s spending too much time at the top of the charts? …And this is supposed to be some kind of a bad thing? The idea that Ed’s songs could lose their intrinsic musical value in your eyes simply because they appeal to more people than before is just baffling to me. 

If you didn’t like the album, that would be okay. Everyone’s got their own personal taste, and I have zero problem with that. If you said you didn’t like the lyrics, or the beat, or the melody, or some actual musical thing about the songs, then I’d say fair enough. You’re not required to like something just because I like it. But the fact that you said you do really like it, and yet it makes you sad because it’s marketable…? And so many other people have said this too, and I’m just over here wondering if everyone’s repeating the same essentially meaningless words to each other because they’ve got nothing original to add to the conversation, or if they think “commercial” means something else, or if I’m suddenly just living in some bizarro-world where it’s not good to make a living from creating things and then selling those things to the public. 

((I’m honestly surprised I reached over 50 followers on this blog, I didn’t think I’d get this many followers actually. I’d like to thank you all and say right away that I love each and every one of you! You’re following me means a lot! Now without further ado here’s a list of some of my favorite mutuals!♥♥))

Dina aggravated me so much in the first season. Is she more likable in the 2nd?

A little. I mean she’s kind of the same  but now she is more friendly with everyone (except Sandra) and she’s the one that makes me laugh the most. 

I also think her character has a lot of potential.

OLDCODEX’s “Fixed Engine” Song List

So, autism and sex.

Someone needs to talk about it, and I’m just about drunk enough.

There is no help here. No well-meaning leaflets from the NHS or anything.

Not that there ever has been for anything to do with adult autism. You leave school to a vast nothingness.

Or, like me, you get a diagnosis, and the answer to “Now What?” is a reading list that’s kind of superficially helpful. A lot of Self-Narrating Zoo Exhibit stuff that’s more to help Allistics understand me than for me to understand myself.

If you’re lucky (like me), you go to a good university that sets you up with mentors. But they’re there to help with your school work.

Or maybe you get a therapist for anxiety or depression, but they’re relying on your own knowledge of autism to inform them, and you don’t really know how to explain certain things before they become a problem.

No one’s there to tell you about sex.

So, there’s the thing with autism. The unfamiliar situations thing. If the first time with an unfamiliar situation goes well, then you’re pretty much fine forever.

Take airports and planes. I needed a support staff member with me the first time I flew as an adult. Now I’m the least stressed about flying out of anyone I know.

But then there’s the flip side.

With your brain producing so much data at once, it’s easier to traumatise. Fear is a learned response, which has to be unlearned. The more intense and vivid the experience, the more hardwired it becomes.

More data = more fear = fear ingrained deep in your base code

Too deep to get out.

If the first time goes badly, say goodbye to dealing with the situation again for a very long time. A very long time, most likely paved with anxiety meds and CBT and therapy session upon therapy session.

If the second - maybe third - time goes well for Allistics, they get over the fear.

Their brain forgets because the fear was never as heavily imprinted.

I don’t forget.

So, you can see how this kind of fucks up sex, right?

Especially for women.

I’m not saying that this isn’t a problem for men, but, like, statistically, women in relationships with men tend to be less satisfied with the sex they’re getting than anyone else.

Especially the first time.

I am in the category of “less than satisfied” women.

Which is fine for Allistics. I know it is because I’ve spoken with Allistic friends.

It was not fine for me.

You see, I bought into the “just get it over with” wisdom. The idea that the first time is never perfect, but you have to start somewhere.

Again, fine for Allistics.

Not fine for me.

I shouldn’t have stayed with my asshole boyfriend. He was condescending, blamed me for every fault in the relationship, never listened to what I had to say, and used anxiety to excuse misogyny.

But I was getting older, and he was the first guy to show interest who didn’t actively repulse me.

The first time doesn’t have to be good, I reasoned. I just have to get it out of the way.

Surprising no one, nothing about the experience was positive.

I broke up with him not long after.

My point is, it’s been over a year. It took me months to be able to deal with the idea of sex again. The songs that played on my iPod that night have had to be thoroughly clensed from all of my playlists.

It well and truly fucked me up.

And no one warned me.

It was all “The first time doesn’t have to be perfect.”

Or, “It’s okay, some people don’t find anyone until they’re, like, forty”, which just terrified me.

So this is my warning.

Because we’re not considered adults who can talk about this stuff.

Because adults being autistic is new as fuck.

Because I would have liked the warning.

I think we’re redefining what a female character can be on the screen. I get weirdly bored of the trope of the “strong female,” it’s becoming as redundant to me as any kind of classic female character. I think it’s just become a buzzword, it doesn’t really mean much any more. To me, a character that is alive and vulnerable and complicated, that’s interesting no matter what gender. I think there are a lot of shows that are now making female perspective the default and that’s really exciting to me.

I am embarrassed to be a U.S. citizen

I really just spent the last 10 minutes sobbing becasue of this election. Forget about the emails, forget about how many times Trump went bankrupt or how successful you think he is. Let’s talk about Americans, we voted for a man who degrades women, has slandered the Hispanic community, and has targeted Muslim citizens in America. He gives no shits about our environment and the world we live in, he could care less about women’s rights, doesn’t give a shit about LGBTQ+ or black lives. That means as Americans, we don’t care if we degrade women or not, we don’t give a damn about the Hispanic community, fuck Muslims, the environment can so suck a dick, LGBTQ+ doesnt mean shit, and Black lives don’t matter. 

And I think part of the reason it hurt me so bad emotionally is becasue I had a lot of faith that we were more, that we were past those times. And now I sit here and learn that I don’t mean shit to most Americans, neither do my friends. That my life doesn’t matter, neither do my black friends and family. And that it is perfectly okay to degrade me and think of me as less than. 

It really fucking sucks.

Anybody else have more yoi ships than Victuri? I mean, gotta love them, but who else do you guys ship? Here are the two I have so far:

Leo and Guang-Hong

They’re so cute! They’re both similar in age, both are the innocent ones in this scene, and they seem to get along pretty well. Plus, they both have pink-ish phone cases.

Also, this one:

Ahh! The narration just kills me!

They’re friends for now, it seems. But they do have a lot in common: they’re both loner types, they complement each other nicely (Yuri’s the aggressive loner and Otabek is the silent loner), and they’re both kind of hardcore in their own way. Plus, Otabek rescued him from his fans. Can we say ‘knight in shining armor’? (riding a pretty rad bike, too)

That’s it for my other yoi ships, but if you have any, do tell!

what she says: i love freeze your brain

what she means: If you look at Freeze Your Brain at face value, you could easily interperet it as simply about JD’s fixation on 7/11 and his issues oversharing. But it’s really more about a place that feels normal and familiar and safe in a frightening and new situation. It’s easy to overlook this, as a lot of the song is made to be comedic. Take the lines “When mom was alive/we lived halfway normal./Now it’s just me and my dad,/we’re less formal” for example. During the musical, it’s easy to focus more on Veronica freaking out than on JD’s words and their meaning. This is done intentionally, as if to show that JD hides how hurt he is about his mother’s death with other emotions, as many people do. Towards the end, it is shown that JD uses slushies to control a possible self-harm habit and self-destructive thoughts, and that’s when the gravity of the song hits you. Despite sounding light-hearted, Freeze Your Brain is about a teenager trying to hold onto the one place that makes him feel safe and happy no matter where he is. If you consider the possibility that his mother introduced him to 7/11, it’s also about trying to recapture childhood emotions, despite the fact that so many things have changed.

Ok so…I know many people won’t care, but I have to say this:

I’m getting scared.
I live in México, and the government has recently increased the prices of oil/gasoline by 20% (which is a big big problem), and because of that, there have been riots, people are looting stores (there are many people who believe, me included, that some of these people are send by the government..I mean, it’s not the first time they would do something like that).
There are gas stations that were taken and closed so they can’t sell (some in a non-violent way), there are highways that were closed by protesters (or whatever they’re called) and right now stores are being closed because people are afraid, the grenadiers are fighting people in the streets, there are people being robbed in the streets (more than other times), media is censoring a lot of things happening here….
Right now, where I live, nothing has happened (and I’m grateful for that) but the gas station that is like, 15 minutes away from my house. was closed yesterday by these people protesting.
There’s a lot of violence here in Mexico right now, more than before, and we can’t trust anyone (the government, the police) to solve what is happening.

As I write this, the police are telling people not to get out of their houses…this is messed up.

Being a female working tech means I deal with a lot of sexist crap, but due to new hires, there are now 4 female & 2 male salespeople, & I'm already enjoying the moments when people come in & go, "can you get one of the men? I need some help." & I get to reply with, "there are no men here at the moment", & I watch their faces fall as they realise that they have to take help from ME, a FEMALE. And when they realise that I actually am able to do my job (funnily enough), it's even more satisfying

“When my child was born and took her first breath and then when she put that tight grip on my finger […] 
With that experience I had at the birth of my baby girl, everything changed. I’d do more when it’s for my baby girl. She’s freed me from my own self, which makes life far more interesting. I now look at life through the eyes of a pure spirit, which is really, really fantastic. It’s a lot of work, but the rewards are just exponential, and the meaning of life and how I see things are clearer. Sure, I’m still doing a photo shoot today and she’s not around. But when I do have her, I’m just not available to anyone or anything. I don’t care who’s calling. I’m with my baby.”
