martial_tribes【Train to be Badass】 Keanu Reeves being Neo fighting in Matrix Trilogy was AWESOME! Then there was 47 Ronin & Man of Tai Chi 🙄 🙄 … But now he is John “BJJ+Judo Master” Wick!! How do you like him throwing and grappling?
The Darkling… How do I begin to explain The Darkling? The Darkling is
flawless. I hear his hair’s insured for 4 million kruge. I hear he does
car commercials… in Shu Han. His favorite movie is Death Becomes Her.
One time he met Nina Zenik on a plane…
And she told him he was pretty. Mal: One time he punched me in the face… it was awesome.
a sketch of my BOYS that I did last night *cough* early this morning when I should have been sleeping *cough*. Shep passing on the mantle of hero to Scott/M!Ryder (no offense to anyone who plays as Sara/fem!Ryder, of course)
You know, I usually don’t do this ‘cause when I see these lists by other people and don’t see myself on the them I kinda feel upset and left out so I don’t want to make other people feel this way. Although, when someone asks me to do this I make a list of newly discovered blogs I like. I think there are two of them, but for some reason I could only find the most recent one [boop]. What I’m ready to do is the list of people I’m not happy with. People I tend to dislike most of the time. Generally annoying people. I will call it The Unfollow Forever List.
1. The people I dislike the most is @beverlyallitsims. She’s my
Guy Gavriel Kay. Have you heard about
Guy Gavriel Kay? He wrote an awesome trilogy called ‘The Fionavar Tapestry’. There was this sexy prince that I fell in love with,
Diarmuid, so G.G.Key just went and killed him. Bang, and there’s no Diarmuid for me. It’s been like ten years but I still haven’t forgiven him. If I met him, the first thing I’d say would be, ‘Guy Gavriel, you’re a jerk!’. @beverlyallitsims ruined my life. She’s awesomely talented person, but no, just no, not after what she did.
2. @neopixiesims. Jeez, she really enjoys causing people pain, I mean she really like actually gets off on that. Sick. She’s also having Danny from the City Living trailer, you may know him as Danny The Commercial Slut, as a legacy spouse. Can you believe this?
Danny The Commercial Slut’s
genes ruin everything, my life included. Sure, she’s funny and witty, but Danny and her general masochistic ways? No, thank you.
3. @nadinemaee. Gawd, so young and already so sick. You know, I never follow drama-llama simblrs ‘cause they are not my thing, but this girlllll, gawd. I’d unfollow her every day of the week, I swear. She ruined everything and everyone. She killed my OTP with help of a man called Pornstaches. Pornstaches, can you imagine that?? Her screens are gorgeous but… Unfollwed.
4. @neutralsupply. Ton of her followers have been waiting for two of her sims to finally… you know… do it? And do you know what she did? DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE DID?? She made them kiss and then proceeded with another storyline. I’ve been sexually frustrated for like a week now. I keep messaging her about it but she stays silent. I won’t even say anything good about her, because there’s nothing good about her. Bye-bye, Z!
5. @furiouslydecaffinated. The little shit writes her smut so good it always leaves me horny. I’m a single lady, you know. But she doesn’t offer me a decent man whore, she doesn’t even make a dildo shop out of her tumblr, she’s just fucking leaving me horny as hell. Every damn time. Thank you, girl. See ya in hell for horny people! The music at her blog is toleratable, though.
6. @tinwhistletoo. This one is a total maniac. Like, for real. Sure, she seems to be so lovey-dovey, and nice, and sweet, and her stories seem so captivating, but, mannnnnnn let me tell you, she’s got more gore in her than Tarantino. Tin’s having a new story? Well, prepare to see some guts flying around the neighborhood.
In which Do Kyungsoo was an Erudite born but he decided to choose Dauntless as his life path, and that was where Kim Jongin, a pure Dauntless born, entered the story as his instructor in the initiation.
I’ve seen a lot of people answer the Dream Job question with WRITER in the question tag posts going around. It makes sense. Many of us are here, rubbing this fandom all over ourselves, because we love reading. We love to read great writing so we want to contribute more of that to the world. Therefore, writer seems like the obvious dream job. And honestly, no matter how many times people try to talk you out of romanticizing a career as a writer, it’s impossible not to.
“I’m going out to the writing loft, darling! Send a small woodland creature with a note affixed to it’s tail to alert me when it’s time for tea!”
I always wanted to be a writer. I didn’t know how that would happen.
I read the classics, went to college and majored in English literature and learned to be a pretty good writer.
I tried to get into publishing houses after college, but I needed money to live and I didn’t know anyone in the industry, so that was a bust.
I tried to get a job as a caption writer, making minimum wage. Didn’t get it.
Things were not looking good and one morning, in my tiny, ancient apartment, I pulled my pants off the floor and a mouse ran out of the pant leg. It was just me, that mouse, and a bunch of bootleg copies of X-Files episodes on VHS.
Despite my failure to get a job as a writer, I never stopped feeling that I was a writer. And in the midst of this uncertainty and rather bleak existence, I realized that WRITER is not a job. WRITER is a characteristic.
I couldn’t not be a writer.
I got a low-level job at a big corporation. Customer service hell. But I did a good job and had confidence in myself and my superiors recognized I was worth more. They also knew I’d burn out soon and leave. So they created a new job for me. An analyst. Because I’d shown myself to be intelligent and curious.
I cannot stress this enough: even if your job sucks, do it well and once in awhile, do more than your job. People will notice.
So I got this analysis job. I literally made up my own work. I looked at information and tried to notice patterns and things that could be improved. And one of the skills that stood out to people was my writing.
People notice good writers. And they will start coming to you for advice and editing. Soon, I had an entire department coming to me to work on their documents. I had communications people (who literally are professional writers!) coming to me to help them craft messages.
I wasn’t a writer. But I was a writer.
Now, one thing about being a writer is the need for a creative outlet. And sometimes, you need to make your own.
One day, at this corporate job, I spent 3 hours creating a fake newsletter full of my dumb humor, printed out a bunch of copies, and secretly dropped it into the offices of the executives. (I don’t know how I get away with this shit, but I do)
And it was funny enough, that when everyone eventually traced it back to me, we all just had a good laugh. And I got a little creativity in that day.
Fast forward many years to now. I have an amazing job. And if I told you the title, almost no one would know what it was. My title isn’t “writer”. But I write all the time.
Sometimes it’s boring writing. But part of being a good writer is finding ways of making something less boring.
This week, I wrote a book review (NK Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy – it’s awesome) for our newsletter that goes to our friends and clients, some more newsletter content, a post for our blog. I write our Twitter copy. None of this is even my main job, which is about 40% writing. And every morning our team writes “huddles”, emails talking about our lives and stories and what’s making us laugh or inspiring us. That’s a huge creative outlet for me.
I’m a writer. I even get paid to do it.
Novelist is something else entirely, but one great secret is that most novelists have other jobs. Extremely talented, well-known novelists even (see NK Jemisin).
So, if you’re a writer, you’re a writer. You already are living your dream. You’ll have many different jobs over the years. And, if you’re determined, you can find a way to be a writer in that job, even if it doesn’t look like it in your job description.
If you’re just reading this to pick a fight because your taste differs from mine, then I suggest you don’t read further. However, if you’re up for a civilized discussion and exchanged of opinions, then go ahead :) I’m certainly not one to critize just for the sake of complaining, but I’d like to express my views on the latest season that has let me down.
Researching for Season 4, Episode 20: “Bounty” and found a little info about Boba Fett’s armor.
Dave Filoni had stated:
“Rather than use his father’s armor, which would still be a tad big for him, we gave him his own unique helmet and armor. It’s a step towards who he will become, but to get to the final famous look from the films, he will need to get some help…”
This was to be planned in Season 7, where Boba Fett would finally don the iconic armor, fighting alongside many recognizable bounty hunters from his old group, including Cad Bane.
