So i close on the house I’m buying next week (yay!) and I’m super excited to get out of my current situation and help my girlfriend and I. I also am happy to have a place that my mom and sister can live with me in for a while so they can start fresh and get out of a desperate situation too.
My lender called me today and gave me some numbers. Closing costs due that day will be about $6,300. My lawyer will cost between $400-$600 on top of that. I’m also going to have start up costs for utilities. I’m working my ass off with as much overtime as possible but there’s not a ton available until later in the summer. I have just enough to pay for the above costs but money is going to be super tight for a while and I’m gonna need to be able to buy food and pay for upkeep for the house for all four of us while my mom and sister find new jobs.
Im confident in myself that I can do this and provide to the best of my ability but I’m also humble enough to know that I need to ask for help sometimes. It would mean the world to all of us if we received any help at all for any costs that come our way during this big change. My square cash is $DevonRae and if you would like to send something via PayPal please send me a message. I appreciate your time reading this, reblogging it, and if you’re able to, donating. You’d be helping a lesbian couple as well as a bi woman and a single mother who all suffer from mental illnesses while two also suffer from physical health issues. Thank you 💖
Hey Holly, I really enjoy your art and youtube videos, and I'm really impressed with how fast you draw and how many hours you draw every day. Are there any stretches, exorcises, or methods that you use to prevent pain/damage to your hand?
Well I still have hand/wrist damage and all artists eventually run into it, mostly carpal tunnel. I actually had to buy one of these recently
which is a support brace so alleviate wrist strain. Because I ink comics there’s a lot of tedious repetitive motions that cause pain and damage, so when I’m not drawing I wear this.
I also use this
which is a laptop stand that elevates the drawing surface so I’m more likely to draw in larger strokes with my arm rather than my wrist.
Most people use drafting tables but I have too much shit for that and I find this works pretty well for my cintiq.
im new to identifying as punk,,, what are some good blogs, places for clothes and shit, and bands?? or anything else useful/helpful???
Welcome to being a punk! I’m gonna kinda start at the beginning with blogs. I don’t personally follow a lot of punk blogs but they’re everywhere, search the punk tag and look through the blogs and find people you think are cool!
Clothes are kinda weird. You can mod shit you find at thrift stores in your area to suit your tastes or you can buy online in stores like angryyoungandpoor and looking around on etsy. You can find studs on any website you morally agree with, in local music stores if you’re ready t fork out the cash to buy local, or on studsandspikes.com. You can also find patches on etsy or make your own! I make mine and have been making stencils for some of my newer ones with cardstock but I normally free hand them with acrylic paints. Experiment if you want to make your own patches and find what you like, just because I like one method doesn’t mean you will. Have fun with your clothing and damn any societal restrictions that were holding you back from being comfortable
Bands vary depending on your own personal taste but my personal faves are
Ajj (they’re a little more folksy)
Alkaline Trio (their style varies by album(
The Bouncing Souls
Face to face
Hot Water Music
I hope this gave you somewhere to start!
Please feel free to add more my dudes
If you make a shop I will buy things. I would kill for stickers of some of your art
I would give you all my money for any of your doodles tbh
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you hOLY HECK part of what I meant was that I draw stuff with a too low resolution for most things that aren’t phonecases or stickers or mugs but I can!! Sort through my stuff and see what has a usable shape??? <3<3 please don’t kill anyone tho
your bakugou squad art: everything and more!!i really love it
HOLY SMOKES THANK YOU!!!!!!! *O*
that one art you did with kuroiro and monoma low key made me ship them and im Suffering
*light yagami voice* just according to keikaku - JK! I accidentally made myself ship it too so we’re on the same boat, I might doodle something for it in the future *wiggle eyebrows*
Hi!! I’m not sure if you’ve answered this before (so I apologize if you have), I’m new to the bnha fandom, I’m in LOVE with bakushima, and I was wondering if there were any good fics you would recommend please for that ship???
• get randomly assigned as your lab partner for a whole semester,
• get trapped with on a broken elevator for ten hours
• get as my employee trainer for my new job at McDonalds
Lab partner????? Ummmm would the punkass fantasy nerd please step forward?? Percy would be such an ideal lab partner. He’d finish all the work week one and then invents a new gun. He promptly gets expelled because he used steal time to invent a gun. I steal his lab book before he is expelled. I turn in his lab book as my own. Assuming he doesn’t get expelled, there’s the risk that he’d be literally too smart to be a good student, I’ve known those folks, but Percy? He is a nerd. I’m fine. I won’t ask him any questions about his background and I’ll buy him lunch after class because he doesn’t eat enough.
Get stuck in an elevator with Scanlannnnnnnn, I can’t imagine a better class to be trapped with than a bard. We’ll drink, we’ll laugh, we might make out around hour five, and he’ll tell me great stories of heroism and valor that are probably maybe true and are definitely entertaining and weirdly seem to hinge on him saving the day with his very very large penis.
And Grog training me, hell yeah, honestly I bet he’d be good at being like a fast-paced cooking job. And assuming he doesn’t Rage, he might be a chill manager. Too chill. Realistically, I can see him dropping a patty on the floor, picking it up, blowing it off, and popping it back on the grill. On the plus side, no health inspector has ever had the nerve to call him on it. At some point, Grog and I hang out and he chucks me onto the roof. It’s very cool. He forgets I’m up there, but it’s still very cool.
HEY GUYS I FINALLY MADE A NEW COMMISSION POST it’s been 84 years
Anyway I need cash in order to function as any normal human being should (and to save up for/buy things) SO HERE WE GO!!!
All commissions are single-character and will be full color/shaded; Illustrations include a background/lighting more complex than color tones. I’ll draw just about anything aside from what’s listed at the end there but I do still reserve the right to deny a commission if I’m not comfortable taking it on.
I tend to draw WoW characters a ton but I will most definitely draw outside of that, lol. I just so happen to have a ton of WoW character art!
ANYHOW contact me at twilidramon @ gmail.com for any questions/whatnot and to get your commission stuff squared away. I’m not going to take up slots unless my workload is too big for me to handle.
Toms a trans guy, he's like around 5'5-5'6, and he's pretty slender, his chest is already pretty flat so he doesn't bind all the time. He buys clothes in the mens section in either a small or xtra small. likes to keep his tops baggy to avoid any noticable chest bumps. He doesn't shave, he doesn't have much body hair in general but whatever he does have he doesn't shave it. He wears tops that are either a solid color or have simple patterns on them.
foxumbrella said: I really hit it hard w the self insertion w/ that one fuck
i got a nice (overpriced) everyday jacket and some setting spray and hair clips and some weed and i’m taking my bf out to dinner i think that’s a good first pay splurge i don’t feel guilty buying any of this :•)
I’ve been spoiling my beardie probably a wee bit too much, he won’t eat any veggies or fruits if I don’t feed them to him by hand <.< you gotta learn to be independent my boy
fyi for all those who comissioned me or donated out of good will, thanks to you I was able to buy new UV lamp for my tortoise since the old one went out as well a heat lamp for the other small one and I wanted to get the exact right ones for their needs and everyone who owns reptiles know the stuff don’t come cheap so I thank you all and so do my boys ~
(also I know my parents would have helped me if I had asked, I just don’t want to leach off of them if there’s any chance I can pay for this stuff myself)
If you had asked me years ago I would have responded with 100 links but these past few years honestly I choose what I like and work backwards.
After I did the whole Marie Kondo thing it just happened naturally. I didn’t actually consider myself ‘stylish’ at all anymore because I stopped following trends so closely but, not to sound too vain, when I looked back on photos from December in Japan I felt really good about it. I feel like I actually have my own style now and it’s so much less effort than anything I ever did before.
So I kept the things I loved and only buy things that I love. If I try something on and I have to question any part of it I don’t buy it. Yeah it means walking away empty-handed A LOT. But it’s truly worth it and I never feel like I have “nothing to wear.”
So when I look for some inspiration I’m drawn to magazines or sites that contain a lot of items I already have. That’s why I really like Vikka magazine. It matches my wardrobe and lifestyle a lot and if I’m getting a bit bored I’ll see something in it I could easily work into my current stuff and will keep it in mind. Like recently I lost 2 pairs of shoes (sandals and loafers) to wear & tear. So I was in the market for something I could wear in the summer, relaxed. I saw these slide loafers from TopShop and while I acknowledge they might considered ugly (LOL) I love them and bought them for summer.
Mostly I just follow my mood these days and really try to listen to myself when I’m trying things on either out shopping or even in my closet. There’s a difference between “not today” and “I feel lousy whenever I wear this.” I’m someone who will sort of punish myself by wearing my least favorite thing if I’m feeling badly. Whenever everything I own is a fav it’s hard to get trapped in the mindset.
I still make mistakes. Like a pair of sunglasses from Madewell I loved how they looked but the mirrored lenses made me really dizzy when I was in direct sun! I had to return them. Or the men’s Muji shirt I adored but later realized I had to wear it with a certain bra or else the buttons would pull weirdly because I should have sized up. I donated it after a few months of wear because the trouble of matching certain shirts to certain bras is just NOT what my life is about these days.
This might have been way longer than you were looking for but I just felt like talking about this in depth.
I also still look at style-arena.jp sometimes and follow instagram accounts like…
There’s this clickbait-y story going around on Facebook about how a herb grinder available on Amazon is getting super-bad reviews because the grinder itself is designed for use with marijuana (but obviously doesn’t say that), and people bought it for use with other herbs. Apparently it doesn’t do a good job of grinding most herbs besides marijuana.
Now you may think this is just another weird clickbait article, but IT TOTALLY HAPPENED TO ME.I mean, I didn’t leave a bad review, but I did buy a herb grinder to use on my valerian and other stuff, and it totally didn’t work. Then my friend told me it was actually a weed grinder.
I don’t actually use marijuana (I think it should be legal, though) so I just sort of put it in a drawer and forgot about it. It wasn’t very expensive but it put me off buying any more grinders. I think I might try to find a proper one, but damn, the last one was horrible with everything I tried to use it with. I’ve just been using a mortar and pestle, but it’s not as good with tough roots.
hiya! I had a quick question. is there any chance you can make the Rhysand and Feyre and the High Lord and Lady pieces on RedBubble available as an art board? I wanted to buy a bunch of your prints as art boards to decorate the wall of my office but those two are unavailable as art board prints
For the first time since I got trolled once I sent the pictures first. I’m never doing that again. I really did trust this person but I was so dumb. I’m never changing my mind now. If you want to buy nudes, send the money first. I take this shit seriously, I don’t give for fucking free. I will no longer send first. Ever again. Fuck these type of people who don’t feel any remorse by taking unfairly. @sapper1011
Some Japanese fans are really upset about the lack of victuuri in manga that’s for sure. Some were really worried back then they announced the manga and ex skate will center Yurio but since it wasn’t confirmed they didn’t say too much on this. And now it just gives them a sense that they will switch the focus from Yuuri to Yurio. Yes Japanese may buy the seme/uke thing but it doesn’t mean all of them fall into that category. Some are like us who want healthy relationship.
Yeah sorry! I was trying to be balanced in my post and make it clear that Japanese fandom is like any other fandom in that yeah there’s that yucky stuff, but there are cool people as well. A fandom is going to be a fandom no matter where it’s located with good and bad eggs.
(Also to note that Western fandom is guilty of those tropes too, even if they don’t always put a label on it.)
Also to note that I think Japanese YOI fandom is more… vocal than many other fandoms? And I don’t mean because of the size. I mean for example, the ring thing. They’re much more assertive than a lot of other fandoms, and as time has gone on, they’ve actually grown more assertive. Which honestly? Good.
I don’t think they have to worry about the focus switching to Yurio. The YOI team isn’t dumb. They know where the money is.
I’m a Mario Lopez fan now :). Does he have any music out? I’ll buy it lol
Also, DWTS and all of their affiliates and fans are either dense or so Full of shit
On the one hand they’re like it’s fan voting, fan voting is everything! on the other hand and in reality, the platform of the show is such that the scores are half the competition
SO if in week 9 You deduct 4 points for a stumble from Normanis routine and and in week 10 you give Rashad perfect scores when there are obvious stumbles and syncing issues, then what the show and its paid judges are
doing effectively is setting up some contestants to win (with less VOTES) and others to lose. Not to mention the effect the judge’s narratives probably have on the audience. Hey Normani youre faltering and breaking down physically. Here’s a boring package. Hey Rashad you’ve got the momentum now so declare we.
What do these narratives have to do with fan voting, really? They don’t have to reflect what the fans want. Instead they’re actually more like voting instructions and an alibi . (It’s like that verse in the Bible whose meaning I’ve heard interpreted in a new light “Give me the desires of my heart”. Not as an in give me what I want, but as in rather tell me what to want…dictate my desires to me. A week before the finale they told David that he was what the show was about and Rashad that he seemed like a winner. So whose desires were those originally? The fans or the show’s?)
And what a coincidence that the show’s “best ever celeb dancer”, as they put it all season, was outscored on the two nights that went towards the win.
