there is something to be said about the moments that we wish we could do over — from the small embarrassments to the wounds that we allow ourselves to marinate in for decades
i used to fasten myself tightly onto the idea that if i had just not met that one person, or made that one mistake, my pawn in the game of life would win this time

i will tell you what would’ve happened if i really had not met that one person, or made that one mistake

i would’ve missed years of getting myself entangled with new lives, creating a messy web of different frequencies and heartbeats entertwined somehow with one another
i would’ve missed years of planting roots and trees, chewing bubblegum, buying a souvenier i love from a museum i hate, trying variations of mango smoothies, writing letters with permanent pens to temporary people
i would’ve missed years of consuming knowledge i would gain from losing an ex-lover, littering their things in the fireplace, and eventually allowing my heart to swell up again for someone else
and i would’ve missed years of committing sin, committing time, learning to someday commit myself

there is something to be said about dumb assignments that ask you to write letters to your past self, as if you could do over something, as if you should.
you are meant to marinate in these mistakes for decades, to learn from them, to soak up the ounces of hate and love and soon-to-be-forgotten memories

so here is my message to my past self: i hope you fuck up; i hope you unforgettably, grotesquely, royally fuck up.

—  i’d do it all again
dear some of the 5sos fam,

please know that:

  • they are allowed to date whoever the fuck they want
  • they are allowed to drink
  • they are allowed to party
  • they are allowed to hook up with girls
  • they are allowed to have their personal lives
  • they are allowed to go out without taking photos

i cannot stress how annoying some of the 5sos fans are. y’all need a serious reality check, you are not going to marry the boys so don’t act like you are. Ashton can date whoever the fuck he wants because he’s ALLOWED to. you don’t know Bryana personally to know what she’s like, you all have just seen a video from three years ago. don’t go around on twitter telling ashton to break up with her or dont start hating on her instagram. IF she is a bitch then oh well, we cant do anything about it. hopefully ashton will realise and learn a lesson not to date girls like her (if she IS, im not saying she is). ashton can think for his own, he doesnt need a bunch of 13 year old girls telling him what to do.

and right now, ashton looks hella happy with his life so dont start shit. he deserves to be happy . thank you 


Extra Content!

So some of you have asked “Where did you get all those pieces of artwork for Earthbound / Mother 2?” The answer - directly from the Japanese manual!

In light of the awesome reaction to the images, I’ve uploaded the direct scans of the manual up on Imgur, so you can see them in their original state!

Buying these manuals and scanning them in takes a lot of work - and costs me a bit of money. If you like what we’re doing, support us on Patreon! It allows me to get even more artwork to scan from old games like this. It helps a lot!

I’m really apprehensive about posting this but here we go. This took a lot, so don’t be mean, please. I have tried very hard for two years to lose weight. I lost 50 pounds, stabilized, and now I am back to losing weight again. I was so used to a world where large women aren’t allowed to wear the same thing smaller girls wear. I was told to hide my body, and that I wasn’t attractive. But you know what? I like the way I look. I have loose skin and stretch marks, both signs of how hard I have worked to shed my old body. I am proud of all that hard work. I also needed to learn how to love myself, and finally, I do. I wear what I want, I present myself in a way that I’m proud of, and I can honestly say I am happy with who I am. I have a long way to go, but I love the way things are going. And I’m done hiding who I really am. #fatkini #bikini #plussized #me #selfie #pink #fitness #bodylove #bodypositive

Today I logged into Facebook and it demanded that I judge whether or not someone on my friends list was allowed into a group I didn’t know I was a part of. So I went there, and the group was like ‘yo we have no admins do you want to be an admin?” so I said yes, but I can’t actually determine what the group is about? The name is “to be shared” and so I just changed all the pictures to rainbows, added photos that said “what is this group about? no one knows!” with rainbows and dragons, changed the group description from nothing to “this is a group of people” and made a public event called “wonder party” for everyone to come and wonder what this group is and what poor life decisions caused them to end up in it.

when your an artist, your tastes come through in your work.

theres shit you like, theres shit you dont like, or even despise. it can show in your work

however as a commission artist, theres parts working for yourself, and parts putting yourself aside to work for another.

Sardonyx Theory

Yes, when I refer to Sardonyx I am talking about the one mentioned recently in Steven Universe and the one that the Steven Bomb has been named after as well. This is a theory that refers to our antagonist, Jasper. The theory will begin underneath the cut since this post contains spoilers about the show. Do not read on unless you want to be spoiled or have already seen anything. Also this is going to be a very long post so get yourself ready!

I got a call to set up an interview and I wrote down the address and date & time but I did write down the person's name? Does it matter? What should I do?

It can certainly matter, depending on where the interview is with. I’ve had interviews where they won’t even really let me into the building unless I can identify the interviewer and my appointment time. But interviews where you just walk up to the customer service desk are considerably more likely. 

What I would suggest to do in this situation is to call back the person that contacted you (their number should be in your recent calls if nowhere else) a day or two before the interview to confirm the interview. At this time, ask them to spell their last name for you. It’s kind of a nice way to get around the whole “I forgot your name thing” and makes it seem like you just want to get the spelling right, but it then allows you to check in by saying “I’m here to see Mrs./Mr. _____” Plus, it’s always good to confirm interviews.

Stripe as a payment method

Has anyone had any problems with Stripe?

I recently had a chargeback of over $500 and I provided tons of evidence of shipment and all that but I still lost the case. 

I tried contacting stripe tons of times but no response. They don’t even have a number to call for service.

Also, I had a customer that wanted to cancel their order so I fully refunded them but they came back to me saying that I only refunded them partially. WTF? Stripe is so sketchy.

I read from other people that used Stripe had the same problem as well. Why did Storenvy start allowing stripe as their payment method? I feel totally ripped off. How do I cancel stripe as an option for payment all together? I don’t trust it at all.

I am no longer accepting Stripe payments. If you pay through stripe, I will automatically cancel your order. Sorry, not sorry.

anonymous asked:

In the sidequests in SJ and IV, there are a number of demons who seem to be essentially reliving their own myths. Why do you think this is?

You could consider it part of the “Eternal Return,” where interacting with the myth at all is akin to a ritual that must be precisely performed, thus including a cycle of events that happened as part of the demon’s personal narrative.

Or, perhaps more likely, these specific myths are the best representation of a demon’s character. By virtue of the fact that they are still considered “digital devils,” the demons are essentially analogous to programs, unable to act beyond what their “coding” allows. For example:

Demons can’t change or grow. They aren’t characters, they’re archetypes. They exist entirely within the boundaries of their prescribed natures, which includes echoing the events that define what they are. 

People who tell you “I’m the only one who gets you” and isolates you from your friends and family are a huge red flag for abuse, this is the sort of isolation shit abusers do.

Always always always be wary of people who tell you that you have to cut everyone out of your life but them and the people they approve of.

This is how abusers isolate you and prevent you from escaping, allowing them to escalate their control

02-07-2015 interview –>

What are you up to?
I am travelling a lot. Exploding suitcases, a lot of paisley flung all over hotel rooms. Trying to do as much exercise as I can. Swimming, because I have a bit of a bad back. Trying to stay grounded. Drinking too much coffee. Texting too much. Not talking to my mother enough.

What are you current fixations?
Nick Cave. I’m obsessed.

Why do you live where you do?
I live in London because I was born there. And my mother said I wasn’t allowed to move more than ten minutes away from her house. She said I’d just lose my keys. Which I did. Often. But it isn’t really working now because I am constantly all over the world.

What do you think of when you think of Canada?
Alanis Morissette was one of my heroes growing up. And Celine Dion is Canadian, right? She was also really big for me as a child. I can do a really good Celine. That was my party trick, on the school buses, impressions of Celine Dion. Also, I just think in terms of how Canada was really supportive of Florence + the Machine, well before the States. It was a really warm reception, quite early. I remember feeling the warmth of the crowd and thinking it was really cool.

What was the first LP/cassette/CD/eight track you ever bought with your own money?
I think it was Green Day’s Dookie, on CD. I had a Coca-Cola CD player, which was my favourite thing in the whole world. I was super into American skate punk — like Green Day, Offspring, Blink-182. It was my first experience with more than just liking music. Like, a way of looking at the world, how you met who you fancied, the whole thing. Like, “Oh, music can claim me.” And I loved that CD player.

What was your most memorable day job?
I worked at a bar right out of school. I literally walked into a bar around the corner from my house on the last day of school and got a job, because all my friends who went to art college worked in bars and I thought it would be fun. I wanted to drink and party. That was my ambition. I was a pretty good barmaid. Except I couldn’t do any of the math or things like that. But I was super fun. I did a lot of dancing behind the bar. There was a little barrier, like a little stage. I spent a lot of time there.

What would make you kick someone out of your band and/or bed, and have you?
I don’t think so. We keep adding people rather than firing people. At the beginning, I didn’t have a set guitarist. We’d play with different people who had their own bands. Kid Harpoon played guitar for a while. The whole idea of Florence + the Machine was that it would just be this kind of really free-floating entity of different musicians coming and going. Then I met Rob [Ackroyd, guitar] and Chris [Hayden, drums] and we became sort of a band. We started touring as a bluesy three-piece. There was a real freedom to that. My dad was tour managing us, in his camper van. There was such a “fuck it” attitude. It was a magic time, and we just picked up people along the way. Tom [Monger] was a harpist who we found. Everyone has stuck together since then.

How do you spoil yourself?
Well, this could be construed in two ways: I get tattoos. My mother would say that I was spoiling myself, because she hates tattoos. I have to pretend they are transfers when I get them, for like six months. But every time there’s a song, I get a little tattoo that means something to me. The first tattoo I ever got was after our first SXSW show in Austin, TX. [Shows her hands.] This is for the new record, the elemental signs for air and water. It’s the idea of being between two worlds. Like, the water from Ceremonials and the air of How Big, How Blue. It felt that How Big, How Blue was a way of getting out of the depths of something, into the sky. So we looked at these kinds of symbols. Then this crucifix is for the lyric “between a crucifix and the Hollywood sign, we decided to get hurt” from “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.” And this birdcage is the first logo we had. People do often ask me if it’s a Tardis, which I’m also okay with.

What does your mom wish you were doing instead?
Not getting tattooed.

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
You know, when I was young and naïve, about 16, I said I wanted “Paint It Black” by the Rolling Stones played at my funeral. I guess that still stands.

Capricorns rule aging and, weirdly, their maturing process is flipped upside down. They’re the Benjamin Buttons of the zodiac.

  1. Act very grown up, trying to control everything and take themselves and the world super seriously. Very conscious about their “image”, what people think. Try to achieve status and just worry a lot about everything, total party poopers who can’t have fun.
  2. Really goofy and sweet, like a cute grandpa or grandma who doesn’t take themselves very seriously. They are playful, yet also really wise. Like the grandparent you know will take care of you and allow you to do anything you want to do, you know?

anonymous asked:

I think we need bill like c-24, in my views if anyone does wrong something to harm the society or canada, he doesn't deserve canada.

That’s very simplistic logic.

Are you ok with your neighbours, friends, teachers, classmates being treated differently by the law and classed as second class citizens just because of where they were born or who their parents are? Its incredibly xenophobic.

If they commit crimes, they should serve jail time. I believe in a Canada where the end goal is not perpetual punishment. People should be given help and resources and be allowed to transition to a peaceful, civil life. Tough on Crime policies don’t work. They only further perpetuate dangerous behaviours.

What good does stripping citizenship and deportation of dangerous people do? All that does is removes them from Canada. That’s an archaic tactic that the civilized world got rid of centuries ago: Exile.

And with C-51 its possible you could lose your citizenship under the guise of terrorism charges that pose no relation to the image of violent terrorism. There are real fears that protest groups and first nations, defending their interests could face serious charges. That’s not just.

Also under C-24 you could lose your citizenship and be deported if corrupt courts from another country accuse you of crimes. You could just be a journalist caught in government affairs, and without a trial, without a judge you could lose your citizenship.

Another reason why I don't understand this fandom...

So what if Maddie got a spot on PLL because her agent asked for it.

Maddie has gained a lot of respect and momentum in the industry and now she is not allowed to make the most of it??

She is not allowed to use this to her advantage??

She is not allowed to seek out as many opportunities as possible??

She is not allowed to continue making more connections and starring in more shows??


Is she supposed to step down and say: ‘you know what I am going to stop now. I feel like everyone in the world needs the chance to be on a TV show. I am not going to do anything more to further my career.’

I don’t understand why some people in the fandom feel like Maddie is not allowed to do as much as possible to further herself in the industry??

With all this 'but it’s unfair’ complaints you guys are still feeding into Lifetime’s portrayal of Maddie getting unfair treatment. STOP with this 'everyone needs a chance’ bull.


And also stop acting like this was handed to her on a silver platter, Maddie worked really hard to get to the point in the industry where it can even be taken seriously that she would like to be on a show. Do you really think she would have gotten a role if she did not deserve it or if PLL did not think it would benefit them??

Do you guys not realise that in big movies the directors and writers sometimes call the actors DIRECTLY and ask for them to be the lead in the movie without an audition or anything? Are those actors supposed to say 'oh I’m sorry that’s not fair I don’t want the role?!’

Of course not. So why is Maddie not allowed to make the most out of her current success??????????? She NEEDS to do as much as possible while the Sia videos are still relevant and while her fame still has momentum. Otherwise she’s just going to be another kid that was famous once.

The entertainment industry is not there to give everyone an equal chance. That is just not how the world works. It’s damn hard to make a name for yourself and Maddie should continue to do as much as possible.
