griffinmcelroyfactkin  asked:

you probably get questions abt this all the time but what do you usually do when youre in a depressive rut? i look up to you and your art because i just relate to having this garbage mental illness lmao. i really wanna make/draft a comic and ive been trying to draw every day but im just always tired and dissatisfied with my work

I’m never satisfied

insert Hamilton joke here

anyways yeah, I think satisfaction of your work is not necessary and can actually be a bad thing. If you are 100% satisfied then you aren’t opening yourself up to see error. By seeing the errors in your work you can at least look at it with a critical eye, even if it means your ability isnt at the level to fix those mistakes you can slowly chip away at it.

Mental illness doesn’t necessarily make me think all my art is garbage but it makes me think I’m garbage at art, if that makes sense. It makes me feel like I’m an imposter when I draw something well and my actual self when I make a mistake, which both are wrong.

So try your best to have some positive affirmation of your abilities, then may sound super shitty, but I actually intentionally follow bad artists to make me feel better at my own work, because seeing people who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground usually makes you see your abilities more clearly.

i was so busy slayin the city this weekend. i went out most of the day and was just literally busy but i loved it. you know how i love the city. it has a different, safe, huge spot in me herrrt

and of course yu uh, this grandma slept early as usual, having enough sleep is just satisfying af

anyway, what do i have to say. nothing much. i love the city, but i also love it when im alone in the province. im all by myself, and im surviving. every day i remind myself how strong i am for hanging on there on my own

currently ive been contemplating about what im gonna do this summer. i want to go have classes, i wont call em summer classes anymore until the government has come to a legit time range for that poor season, or go work at a daycare center, i dunno, cos i dont want to just invest so much time on vanguard again that i lose the essential balance of life. recently my interest for that hobby kinda reduced to eventual admiration of the decks without actually desiring for the need to use it

i have a lot of hobbies, but i usually go back to them from time to time, like a season, there are times when i feel it, there are times when i dont so i switch it up every now and then. and right now, vanguard’s a dry spell

anyway, i have no observation today. you might be thinking what im doing right now or nah but im gonna tell you anyway, wait i just did, i have no classes. and i’ll still be having them until the end of may

feeling really sleepy right now so i might drift off first before i go out again of course this hoe gtg out

anyway, god, my freakin preference for long haired dudes went all crazy mode this weekend, i was spottin a lot of hot sauces and. AND. AND. i want one

I’d just like to point out that Link’s rule of personal space between married couples is designed to work flawlessly with the height difference between him and Rhett. When the knees align, so do the faces. On them, this rule reaches exact perfection. This distance is meant to be for them.

my reverb 2015 contribution is here, and i’d say im pretty proud of it. this thing took a lot of work and frustration to get right and im still not 100% satisfied with the colors and lighting, but nbd. this was really fun to do, and i’d like to thank the wonderfully talented writers who worked with me on this! it was a blast, and im so excited about what you wrote!

anyway, on to summary and links!

Maka and Soul are sent on a mission for the soul of a kishin; piece of cake.  But as Maka and Soul feel like they’re being watched in the Aokigahara forest, things start to spiral downhill till things go all out of control; including their minds.  Obviously, the kishin isn’t the only being in that forest.

Maka and Soul are sent to a small, rundown town in the middle of nowhere to investigate a string of disappearances.  But the thick forest holds many secrets, and the locals know more than they’re telling.  As Maka and Soul hurtle closer to the truth, danger draws ever nearer to them…

Social justice fights are failing because people throw around rightful, yet very aggresive and hateful phrases such as "down with cis" and expects people who have never been exposed to social justice issues before to instantly get it and align with it. Questions and inquires are met with mockery and turns potential allies away forever, without ever getting context or answers about why certain issues are handled certain ways.

youre making a fair point. counter-argument: im very tired and i want to sink into the earth and disappear every day and i dont have the stamina to explain the same thing to people over and over. im not a social justice blogger. im a 20 year old college student who works really hard to satisfy a lot of people all the time, and if it was my job to educate every angry anon i get on Issues ™ then this would be really mean of me, but it isnt, and its also not my duty as A Trans to be nice to ignorant people.
