and this just made me feel so much better

Want to see something cool? The sketch above is something I drew when I was about 14, in 2005 or so (that’s what you can blame for the terrible, impractical costume design!). Here’s what I can do with her in 2017, at the age of 26.

I go through a constant battle with myself about my artistic ability, but even I can see the progress here. I’ve made a lot of excuses over the years, and I have only just(!) started making a conscious effort to improve as an artist after far too long trying to work off of natural ability, and then feeling sorry for myself when it didn’t pay off the way I wanted. I’m only just coming to accept that the only way to get better is consistent effort, persistence and determination - talent will only get you so far. Yes, it does bug the hell out of me that I could have been much better already if I’d gotten over myself sooner - but that’s life! I’ve started now, and that’s what matters.

Stay determined, guys - sometimes, the things we want most for ourselves really do just come down to working your butt off for them. And I’m looking forward to lots more of that in the future!

i just wanted to let you know that as much as we are all enjoying 'the reader and the writer' there's no demand for it to be written immediately. your work is amazing and that means that people are going to demand for it more and more frequently, not realising that the writers have lives too; so i just wanted to let you know that it's okay if you don't upload ALL the time

oh my gosh this means the world to me, thank you so much <33 i’ve actually been worrying today since i’ve got a very busy week this week, i might not be posting as often but this just made me feel a million times better, thank you :))

Hiya, I was in your stream last night (BlissfullyIamMe). I wanted to say you're super awesome and very lovely. I'm glad I joined because I was feeling really down, and ya'll made me laugh so much. I felt so much better afterwards. Thanks for streaming! ^^

Thank you so much for joining :’) I’m glad you were there before the technical difficulties happened D: I’m glad me and my friends were able to bring a smile on your face ❤🌸

Time to play: why this isn’t 1930s Germany
  1. We have a much much longer democratic history 
  2. This is a movement of a dying demographic with one last chance, not the dominant one
  3. We are not in the dire economic straits that Germany was by any metric. The widespread grief is just not there
  4. We have far superior tools of communication
  5. We are already mobilizing against oppressive institutions (BLM). Get your boots on the ground
  6. Demographically, most Americans support progressive policies like choice, even if that isn’t reflected electorally. Remember: a majority of voters didn’t even want this.

YG BETTER GET HIS SHIT TOGETHER!!!

I used to stan YG artists so much but the indefinite hiatus made me lose a bit of interest on my fave groups and now guess what, 2ne1’s officially disbanding (even though I saw it coming the moment Minzy left). Also, they’re pretty much kicking Nam Taehyun out of Winner for being mentally sick (their reason is that they don’t know when he’s going to get better - FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!). I don’t even stan Winner and I feel bad for them.. All YG cares about is Bigbang and the two members of Ikon.. YG BETTER SQUARE THE FUCK UP AND MANAGE HIS ARTISTS BETTER.. You better not fuck up Blackpink too.. I already got my heart broken a million times today and I’m ready to choke someone!!!

THE FIVE YEAR RULE.

WHENEVER YOU’RE IN ANY TYPE
OF SITUATION, GOOD OR BAD,
ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION:
IS THIS PERSON OR EVENT GOING
TO MATTER IN FIVE YEARS?
SAY IT’S A FAMILY MEMBER’S
WEDDING WHO REALLY MEANS
SOMETHING TO YOU THEN
YOU SHOULD OBVIOUSLY GO
TO THAT EVENT BECAUSE
IN FIVE YEARS TIME YOU
WILL SAY TO YOURSELF
“I SHOULD HAVE GONE TO THAT”.
IF SOMEONE IS GIVING YOU
A HARD TIME AND THEY’RE
NOT THAT IMPORTANT TO YOU
THEN JUST LET IT GO. IT’S NOT
GOING TO AFFECT YOU AS MUCH AS
YOU THINK AT THE END OF THE DAY.
IT WILL FEEL BETTER TO GET AWAY
FROM THAT TYPE OF NEGATIVITY
AND JUST CONCENTRATE ON
THE POSITIVITY. ALTHOUGH IT
SOUNDS REALLY SIMPLE, IT CAN
BE HARD THING TO KEEP IN
MIND AND DO. AT THE END OF
THE DAY IT’S HELPED ME TO
LET GO OF ALL THE PETTY THINGS
THAT DON’T REALLY MATTER TO ME
AND JUST MADE ME PAY ATTENTION
TO THE IMPORTANT THINGS
AND THE PEOPLE THAT I LOVE.
IT HELP ME FIND SO MUCH
MORE HAPPINESS IN MY LIFE.

I HOPE IT HELPS YOU TOO.

Im trying to learn my anatomy and drawing what Im studying tends to help me remember things better, so I made this! I made this for personal reference but figured it might be helpful to some of you trying to learn hands too? It helped me a lot so I just figured, eh. I tried to keep it short and simple without going into too much detail, so pardon if there’s some stuff I omitted. Feel free to use it if you like! Im planning on making a Part 2 soon, which will have the hand structure, surface form, proportions, finger tapering, foreshortening, etc. Also please excuse my writing, I did my best to make it neat! >_<

Edit: fixed the insertion point of the adductor pollicis. Everything should be okay now!

Edit 2: Part 2 is out! Linked below!

When I was 17, from a kinda terrible home, newly out as Trans, and hugely angsty, Anthony Head took me into his life, and for the first time I was made to feel that I was worth something, he told me that he believed in me and that I should follow my dreams.

He then proceeded to spend the next few years proving those were not empty words. Now I just turned 20, I know that I’m loved, and I followed my dreams. I’m studying at university, a national award winning poet, and this is the dedications page of my second book:

Trust me when I say, life gets better. So much better. And dreams, they can certainly come true.

Your art literally cheers me up so much. My parents both got into a car accident earlier today and the car flipped and they nearly died and I was so scared. But I looked at some of your art and it has helped calm me down a bit. Luckily, they're okay but you're drawing actually kept my mind off that a bit and I just wanna thank you so much

I read it in the morning and you almost made me cry
I hope your parents all is well and you’re feeling better now!
Sorry I can’t hug you so take these guys and take care of yourself

Favors- Cassian Andor

Pairing: Cassian Andor/OC

Request: @elenawrit 

“What about Cassian wearing this empire uniform, and after his mission, he comes back on the base, and when he goes to see the reader, she doesn’t have attention, she just sees the uniform and she punch him in the face. And after, she feels so sorry, and he teases her by saying something like “You must give me a magic kiss to treat me.” what do you think about it ?”

Warnings: Just so much fluff. Like is it too much?? I dunno…I’m out of control. 


He had been gone for five days. In my world, it might as well have been a month. It was impossible to say what was more difficult…Cassian being away on a mission without me, or him being here with me. Although that wasn’t exactly true. Everything was better when he was around. He made me feel something I hadn’t felt since I was a child. Hope. Hope that maybe it was possible for good things to still exist, and hope that we still deserved them after everything we had done. It was having to hide the fact that I was ridiculously in love with him that made it hard. I settled on the fact that it was enough that he knew…yet there were days when some lovesick part of me wanted to tell everyone. Our reasons for not telling, though, were too necessary.

  25. ‘What is it? What’s wrong? Why are you looking at me like that?’
If I would be given a chance to be with someone, I would choose you without any hesitations. Why? Because you made me feel that I’m worthy of love, care, respect and attention. I’m grateful. You saved me from my one-sided den, you embraced for who I was way back then, you wiped away my tears, you helped me overcome my weaknesses and fears, you accepted my flaws, childish acts and baby talk, you made me stronger, so now I can walk.
Without you, I will just be a fork without a knife and a spoon, I will just be a star without a moon, a blanket without pillows and a stick without mallows; I’m useful, but I’m incomplete. I can do things on my own, but with you, I can do much more things. I can do almost everything. I am completely better when I’m with you.
In this life, I will never replace you, no matter what happens. I feel something strange inside of me when you’re near. And to be honest, I can’t explain the exact feeling that I’m feeling when we are together. It’s beyond happiness. Words aren’t enough to define how happy I am because I have you in this journey. I’m glad you are here. Before, I was watching the sunset alone but now, it’s totally different. I’m with someone who hold my hand while watching the sun fades in front of us.
You, you made me a better person. You made my life more meaningful. You cast out the negativity on me, you shed light on my life that I have never seen before. You made me one step closer to our King, and I know, you deserve my everything. Please, accept this ring. I love you. I’m so grateful you are in my life. And I feel honored to call you my wife.
If there is one positive thing I can say about the life I’ve had, it’s that it made me a better person.
As much as I wish I’d had the happy carefree life everyone else seems to have had, I have to admit that it’s made me who I am – for the better, not just the worse.
Every time I’ve been knocked down I’ve gotten back up and it’s a strength I gained from never having anyone to help me. So now when I see someone else who’s down and out, I offer them a compassionate hand because I know how it feels and I believe that in their darkest moments nobody should ever be alone.
Empathy is a gift and I share it with others, but it’s a gift that comes with a terrible price that only those who possess it know… Because to empathize with someone’s pain, you need to have experienced it yourself and that is the hidden price that compassionate people have paid to be who they are.
So as much as I wouldn’t want to go back and relive them all again, I wouldn’t undo my life’s painful experiences either because I know that ultimately I wouldn’t be the same person without them.

Ok but me and my sister came up with something and honestly this made me feel so much better. Think about this , everytime a SW actor die they join the SW universe fully. So nope, Carrie is not really dead , she became one with Leia Organa , she is now in the Sw universe FITE ME ON THIS. SO if you want to see what she’s doing you will have to wait for next year or go re-watch the originals so you can see Carrie aka LEIA. SHE IS ACTUALLY ARGUING WITH TARKIN THO , and Artoo is just beeping excitedly because he is no more alone c;

Random Thought

After being an active member of this fandom for a few months now, I can’t believe how many kind and amazing people I’ve met. I couldn’t help wonder today, as I was chatting to the lovely @thank-your-lucky-stars, why we have so many great and amazing people gathered together in this fandom. People who are kind and thoughtful, even to people they don’t know. 

I found the fandom in a time where I needed a distraction - I was hurting, I was grieving and I needed something to take me away. I started watching Robron videos and following people on here, and it was a respite from my sadness, a way for me to be happy or find joy in times where I wasn’t necessarily happy. 

Maybe that’s all of us - flawed, sad, grieving, dealing with shit and mental health issues or whatever else the world has thrown at us, and we have collectively found a way to process the madness of the world by fangirling over two flawed characters who have found love. 

That may explain why I’ve felt so comfortable with all of you, because on some level, many of us can understand going through tough times, and helping people through it, and finding each other online has given us a way of not only freaking out over Robron, but also finding solace and consoling each other when we are feeling bad. 

If you don’t think this applies to you, then I’m sorry, I don’t mean to put anyone in a box or try and make anyone’s pain feel less valid. But maybe, some of you will read this and once again be grateful for this crazy site, and the crazy couple that has brought us all together, to laugh, to cry, and to help each other feel better. 

In short, this is a thank you to everyone who has sent me messages when I’ve had a bad day, or reached out to me if they needed to. You mean so much to me and make my day so much better, I can’t help but want to give you all a big hug and thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

I love Wander so much tbh. Like even just looking at gifs of him in the gif feature make me feel better. Look at this precious child.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVE!💗💕💓💗
Its already your 23th birthday. Time passes so fast, isn’t it? Oh well, where should I even star?
I feel like we dont deserve you, we amrys and I. Everything about you is just too much. You are too kind, too soft, genuine, hardworking, talented, beautiful…Just too good for this world :’-) You are the person I look ap to. Someone who followed his dreams no matter what would other people say or think. Someone who worked his ass out to be where he is now and prove everyone who didn’t believe in him wrong. I am proud. You made me want to become a better person, I am so greatful to you. I actually learned so much about life, love, care and friendship from you. And I am not even kidding! I am still very young and its really important for me to have my idol. I am happy coz my idol is you and none else.
I love everything about you, your personality, rapping, dancing, singing, your voice, you laugh, your smile, those cute little dimples and that cute shape of your mouth when you are in a bad mood…ughh the list could go on and on…
I want you to be happy in life, really happy, healthy, to find someone who will be your other half. I want all your dreams to become true. I honsetly want you to have all happiness from this world coz you truly deserve it.
Thank you once again, for all your hardwork, music, amazing performances, for taking care of other mambers and for always being a mood maker.
You are really our golden hyung❤
We all love you Hoseok! Be happy! Happy birthday! 사랑해~!💗

Ok..so this turned out to be a long ass message. I am not even sure if people would read this. I just needed to say it and get it out of my chest. I could write so much more but it would never end then lol😂

So fun fact, any time I feel sad or overwhelmed I go over to Instagram or Facebook and find pictures of things people have made and are enthusiastic about. And then I just leave a lot of nice comments.

Admiring people’s creations and supporting their excitement about them just make me feel so much better. It’s a silly coping mechanism but it works. Today I’m letting all of these people who made Star Wars costumes know that they look amazing and powerful and the lighting is perfect and that costume must have been so much work but it’s gorgeous! Then I’ll probably move onto the #IMadeIt tag and just tell everyone who made candles or dinner or a skirt that their stuff is spectacular. Because it is. And it makes me happy.

This is seriously the best coping mechanism I’ve discovered so far. Who can be sad while looking at a homemade collection of little dolls? Or a really pretty loaf of bread? Or a purse that looks like a foxes face? Not me!

I just got dx with ADHD in Dec. at the age of 31 and started taking meds for it. Turns out, a lot of my anxiety and depression symptoms were tied up in the ADHD, so treating it has made me feel SO MUCH BETTER, omg. Brain fog = gone, focus = actually a thing I can do, distractions = not taking over my life. (Turns out, ptsd + adhd can look a lot like bipolar. Once I got the ptsd treated with hella therapy, the adhd became obvious and we changed the treatment. And there was much rejoicing). <3

….*rubs eyes* as someone with untreated ptsd as well, I should really, really be doing something about this.

Ooookay, 2k17 is getting the help I deserve then. Thank you for that, it made me feel better to know it’s not too late. Even at my ripe old age of impending 30 :P

Hiii taylor!!!! Since you are back on tumblr i just wanted to tell you a little bit of my life and just my year in general because it was a really important year for me!! So heyyy im lucy! I’m a gymnast! and gymnastics is a biiig part of my life right now! Around April this year i had the worst competition of my entire life, i fell like 18832948294 times and my mom was super mad at me and i just wanted to quit gymnastics and die lol but as soon as i got home i listened to long live and change and it made me feel a 100% better! The clean speech also helped me SO much and after a while everything got better, i was enjoying gymnastics more than anything!! And on september i made it into the top 8 junior gymnasts of America!!!! I still can’t believe it and i just want to say thank you so much for helping me get through tough times and mental blocks and competitions and camps and everything! I love you SO SO SO SOOO much and i can’t wait to meet you and hug you one day!!! (Hopefully soon💗) @taylorswift @taylorswift @taylorswift
