Just a friendly reminder: do not feel guilty about how you spend your summer break!!! You do not have to justify yourself AT ALL.
You need/want to work? Work! Bring in that money and pay off loans/take a much needed vacation/continue to exist without worrying about rent or groceries. If you’re one of those people who get bored and need to have people around them? Get out there and do it. Work it and do not feel bad. You do you.
If you want to stay holed up inside and stay wrapped up under a blanket drinking coffee/tea/wine/protein smoothies and reading/watching tv/browsing on tumblr/twitter/Facebook/whatever else is there. Do. It.
Spend it at the gym? Do it.
Spend it cleaning your house? Do it.
Spend it on vacation? Do it.
Plan that curriculum? Do it.
Your summer is about you. You do what you need to do. And you take care of yourself.
I’ll say it again, you do not need to justify yourself.
We all deal with bullshit for, give or take, 185 days. (Some of us less, the lucky ones, and some of us more, can I pay for your deserved vacation?) If nothing else we know the damn trenches because we live, breathe and deal with it until this damn summer vacation. We know it better than ANYONE else because we all work damn hard.
Get your sleep. Make that money. Drink that drink. Lift that weight. Run that mile. Plan that curriculum. Lay out on that beach.
So Lucie Pohl is doing an AMA this coming Wednesday.
This is a reminder that she is a human being with a life outside of this one voice role she plays and deserves to not be involved in things as petty as ship conflicts. She is a working in a professional context with people who are similarly devoted to their jobs.
If you attempt to involve her in them, or ask her loaded questions, you’re demonstrating the exact reasons why developers are so cautious about opening up like this.
Similarly, don’t be creepy, rude, confrontational or otherwise nasty. Don’t be manipulative, or otherwise peddle false information. Let her answer the questions she’s alright with.
hey, thanks for being so cool. I'm a Hawks fan who has grown to love your organization and your players by how you interact with us and truly love the game, so thanks for all that you do!! I'll be in Denver on vacation next week, any suggestions on what to do while my family is there? 😎
You are welcome! That’s our goal, so we’re glad that you like it :)
Come tour Pepsi Center (hehe)!
But really: you gotta check out Red Rocks (run the stairs if you’re into that sort of thing), maybe hit up a Rockies game (we recommend the rooftop - the views are insane) or a Rapids game (the fans are rowdy and fun), check out all the amazing restaurants here, walk around 16th street mall, hit up the Art Museum or the zoo, stuff like that. Basically, enjoy the beautiful sunshine :)
When in Glastonbury: When Gillian Met Actual Brad Pitt
We ran into my friend Gillian, and Gillian had had an issue with her foot where something happened and her toenail had fallen off, and she had it replaced with a fake toenail. In the early hours, say 6:00am, Saturday morning at Glastonbury she thought it would be a great idea to take off her shoes, peel off those sweaty Glastonbury socks and play a game of 'Guess Which Toenail is Fake?' with actual Brad Pitt. That's a real story of what happened.
[laughing] Did he get it right?
He got it right. He's an expert in spying out fake toenails. I asked her, "How was Brad Pitt?" and she said, "He just looked very sad," and I was like "Yeah he had to look at your gross feet at 6 o'clock in the morning!"
This is my first attempt at drawing dan yikes

Any advice on color pallete challenges? Your at is breathtaking!
uhhh i can probably think of a few !!
1.going in bear in mind that it is a challenge and u may… not exactly like the colors ure given (god knows how it pained me to use that puke yellow in the ‘overboard’ palette) but dont let it overpower u!! theres always a way to make it look at least Pretty Okay, so dw itll be fine
2. color ur drawing two or even three different ways before fully going in! sometimes the variation you go with first isnt the best one and its not always clear to see, so try a few different combos and see what works best!!
3. this is just a personal preference but i usually go with the darkest color for the outlines in case i run myself into a corner without a way to seperate two colors so the drawing reads well but… idk if u go lineless this ones pretty useless fhjdjh
4. try to !! put some variation in neighbouring colors. like lets say u have a palette of 5 colors and u put two next to each other– throw that third or fourth one in!! switch it up keep it interesting and hope for the best
5. if ure worried ur drawing looks too bland put some scribblies in different places– lines, dots, random splotches of color, idk!! have fun with it!!! tell that challenge its got nothing on u and make it a fun experience for urself
honestly i dont know what im doing half the time but heres…..those
