but i can't guarantee on doing more

In case no one told you growing up

Many wonderful additions have been posted in the reblogs if you care to look through them (the post would be a giant if I added them all, plus I don’t see them all myself).

An anon asked me for a version of this specifically for feminine hygiene. You can see it here.

~~~~

  • Bras last longer if you let them air dry. Don’t put them in the dryer.
  • If you have a problem with frizzy hair, don’t dry your hair with a towel. It makes the frizzies worse. (I recently read an article that said to use a t-shirt? I brush mine out and let it air dry.)
  • Whites wash best in hot water. Everything else can be in cold - save on your electricity bill.
  • You can kill 99.9% of germs in a sponge by putting it in the dishwasher for a cycle or by microwaving it for 2 min (be sure to make the sponge damp before microwaving and to put a cup half full of water in with it and please DO NOT squeeze the sponge until it has cooled off)
  • Airing out your room/house and letting sunlight in every so often can decrease the number of household pests like silverfish and ants.
  • Black underwear is best during your period as stains are less likely to be visible.
  • To save money, put aside 10% of each paycheck into a savings account. It’ll add up.
  • Unless your hair has something on/in it (like grease or mud or something), using conditioner first can actually be the better choice. The conditioner holds in the good oils that help you hair look sleek and beautiful, which shampoo would otherwise wash away.
  • Speaking of shampoo - if you have long hair, washing just the bits that touch your scalp is generally enough. The rest of your hair gets cleaned with just the run off from your scalp.
  • If you put a tampon in and it’s uncomfortable/you can feel it, you didn’t do it quite right. A properly placed tampon is virtually unnoticeable by the wearer.
  • Apply deodorant/antiperspirant a couple hours in advanced of when you need it. This gives the product the chance to block your sweat glands. Using deodorant just before going somewhere where you’ll sweat (this means walking outside for people in high humidity places) results in your sweat washing the deodorant off and starkly limiting its usefulness.
  • After running the dryer, use the dryer sheet from that load to brush out the lint catch - it gets everything off in a fraction of the time it’ll take you to get it clean with your bare hands. Paper towels also work well.
  • Wash your face everyday, or as often as possible. Forget which brand of cleanser is best. Just washing your face everyday will guarantee you clearer skin. And do you best not to pop pimples, as tempting as the urge may be.
  • Fold laundry asap after taking it from the dryer to avoid wrinkles. This may seem obvious for dress shirts and silly for things like t-shirts, but you’ll notice the difference even then once your shirts stop looking like unfolded paper balls.

13-screaming-cats  asked:

For your longer posts would it be possible to make a tl;dr at the end? I love reading them and learning more but my disability makes it hard to concentrate and read all of it but I really want to learn about all the things you write and become more informed! If you can't that's okay, you write about some really intricate stuff that would be hard to sum up but thank you reading all this regardless of if you can or can't, and thank you for taking the time to teach us all these important things!

I can totally do that, although sometimes I find the tl;dr ends up being kinda lengthy itself! Are there specific posts that don’t have one right now where it would be useful? 

I guarantee I may forget on some posts, so if they need them it is totally appropriate to poke me and ask me to add one. 

(And I’ll definitely put them at the end, because if the summary is first and the rest is under a cut stuff is much less likely to get read. I like the compromise of having one for folk who need it but still making sure the detail is on your dash). 

hoo boy, never did one of these before. (now closed!)

Like this post if you’d like a thread with one of my muses, please! Specify who you’d like too, or else I’ll fling anyone atcha. 

Bonus: If you’d like it to be in the normal Don’t Starve setting or the Modern setting, let me know that, too. Just scream “NORMAL!” or “MODERN!”. Default will be the regular old “we are struggling not to die” world.

Okay you guys, it’s summer and I’ve got too much time on my hands and I need some more ocs to draw. So, I thought about asking if any of y'all had some you wanted me to attempt. It’ll help expand what I think I can do and you get free, hopefully decent art out of it lol. So you can message me or add pictures onto here. Hell, you can even send me links to photos of your ocs. But you gotta tell me which one to draw. Don’t make me choose. I am terrible at that and will likely cry. No, just kidding. But seriously, I’d love to give your precious babies a shot. I’ll try to have them done - well, whenever I can tbh.

Prince On Every Tour: Controversy

NOTE: I forced myself to stay awake last night to do this. As you will see from the body of this post as well as the tags. Mistakes were made. But worth it.
____________________________________________________________

It is currently 11PM but I decided to start now regardless. Because who needs sleep to be able to function at work in the morning? Right, me either. Therefore, tonight’s show folks:

CONTROVERSY. HOUSTON. DECEMBER 20, 1981. LET’S GET INTO IT.

Originally posted by onlyprincegifs

Overview:  Six short months after that friend of a friend’s concert in Paris in a 3000 person venue, here you are in Houston watching that same friend of a friend play an arena that holds 17,500. Why are you flying all over the world for this man anyway? Oh, because he’s STILL. FINE. And his band is EVEN BETTER. He’s traded in the bikini briefs for some nicely fitted pants, thrown some DEEPLY appreciated curls in that hair, and is putting on a show that is leaving you with several emotions you were unprepared to handle. And with the receipts he’s been throwing out all night across that stage, you have to resolve to just shoot your shot. You know SOMEONE’S gettin’ chose tonight. And it for doggone sure better be you. 

Sorry. I’m focused ya’ll. I promise. It’s just…this show ya’ll. This show. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen it, and BOY was it great to be reminded about what a treat it was. Especially after having watched the Paris show in all of it’s unpolished glory. Next to that, this Controversy show feels like it is years apart in production, in sound, in vocals. If we knew nothing about boyfriend, we would be hardpressed to find out that these shows were in such close proximity to each other. But they are, and that is the beauty of the great talent that is Prince. How he could just level up, and ever so quickly, leaving us still reeling from the euphoria of the thing he’s already left behind. What a man.

In terms of Prince productions, clearly this one is still low on the totem, but in no way was it ragtag or even unpolished in my opinion (though I have no problem with unpolished). I know most folks will say that Purple Rain is when he boiled it all down to a fine science, but I’d like to argue that this show was a clear indication that he had already figured it out this early on. He was just waiting for the rest of the world to catch up to him and what he already knew about himself. His confidence and ability to completely captivate this audience that is literally more than 5 times the one from six months prior is remarkable. He’s interacting with the audience more, which was basically not happening in the last show. His band is audibly tighter despite changes in members (hey Brownmark!). He is a more defined bandleader in this show and I’m loving watching him be subtly instructional. And hearing/seeing the results of what I’m sure is hours upon hours of hard work on all their parts is giving me life at 1:15am. Bless.

He’s also figured out how to channel a ton of that energy that just came exploding out in the last show a lot better this time around. Some of the dances are still like “Prince….” (see what someone so eloquently titled his mating dance during Let’s Work) but they are met with an underlying, not yet fully blossomed swag that makes you say “…okay” as you watch on fondly and maybe slightly aroused? Who’s to say? (I am, I am to say). The shoulder shimmy is still here at times tho, thank GOD. Some of that energy is also channeled into giving some insane guitar performances. There was an interpolation of I Feel For You after Why You Wanna, and I promise I felt myself lift from my bed slightly. 

Favorite Number: This is sincerely difficult seeing as how there wasn’t a single bad or boring number in this entire show. I mean, Second Coming took me to church, ya’ll hear me? CHURCH. And in the same breath, I will mention how he offered up several receipts during Head and Do Me Baby that I am not yet in a place to be unaffected by. And I am perfectly okay with staying in that place for the entirety of my life. Also, regarding Do Me Baby: GO ‘HEAD AND SING THE SONG PRINCE!!!!!! Insert as many of the handclap emojis you need to drive home the point.

But if I MUST choose, then I’m going Private Joy. The utter delight with which he performed that song made me smile soooo hard. It’s already a jam, so I think I will land there. Also, see aforementioned “also regarding Do Me Baby.” The boy was sangin’.

Favorite Outfit:
I love Prince in some good suspenders as much as the next guy, but the animal print blazer with a vest and no shirt during the encore is a clear winner for me.

Still Would Rating: I used to sleep on Controversy Prince long, long ago when it came to considering the “still would” factor. Since then I’ve learned. And tonight I relearned. Because not only did I watch Houston, but I slipped up and turned on the Capitol Theatre show as I’m typing this. He’s asking me if I wanna close my eyes as pants are unbuttoned and hip chains are irresponsibly revealed. WELP.

Overall Rating: This show is such a good time. Energy is high, nothing but jam after jam, and you get to see Prince really step into his stardom (I think) even if everyone else hadn’t quite seen it yet. It’s definitely one I will have to make sure I revisit more often. 

PREVIOUSLY, DIRTY MIND                                       NEXT UP…1999

I don’t post enough rough sketches and there’s probably a reason why tbh but here have this sketch of a Princess Pacifica I did for a mabifica/billdip au I’m not gonna do anything with but also can’t stop obsessing over! :D

help me this au won’t leave me alone wtf

wOAH HOLD U P-

L-Look up.. to ME?? I haven’t even done anything worthy of any of this! I’m f-flattered but.. slightly confused..

I guarantee that you guys are a lot better than me! And there is much more worthy trash queens out there for you to look up to! Don’t dENY IT-

The difference between Trump and Clinton is that if Clinton had been elected, Trump supporters wouldn’t be fearing for their lives, their safety, their family and friends, their rights, their home. They would be angry, sure, but there’s no direct threat to them. I wouldn’t go to their inbox and spew racial and gendered slurs at them just because they disagreed.
But Trump was elected, and I have received so much hate for being afraid, I feel weak and sick and vulnerable and threatened. I genuinely do not feel safe. I can guarantee you if Clinton had won Trump supporters would not be feeling this.
So that’s the difference. That’s why this is more than just having different opinions. This isn’t about having a small disagreement. What’s so hard to understand about that?

what’s with the NHL + nbc’s broadcasting stuff? like every game of the finals for the NBA is being broadcast on ABC but only games one and four are guaranteed on NBC for the cup finals (5-7 if necessary) ?

Facebook dressage forums
  • Beginner training-level rider: hey here's a video I would love critique but I am happy with how we're doing 😊
  • Person 1: you should do lateral work see how your horse is stepping I'd recommend starting on half pass and work your way towards piaffe pirouettes
  • Person 2: I can't believe how people ride these days doesn't she notice how the horse's head isn't perfectly situated at all times go ride bitless and see how well you are then
  • Person 3: So glad to see more people doing REAL riding instead of that western voodoo
Update

Sorry I’ve not been posting recently. I have exams this month start in wirh my English exam this Thursday and I’ve been revising as I want to do the best I can possibly do and thus haven’t had time to post.

I’ll try and post little sketches whenever I can, but requests or fully coloured pictures won’t be done until July which is when I finish for my holiday.

I hope you guys understand and bare with me until I’m able to post more often

  • Y'all: We turned away the Jewish refugees in the 30's, and look what happened! We should learn from our mistakes!
  • Me: Wow. I'm actually really glad goyish society as a whole is recognising this horrible injustice. While I do object to the usage of us and our history as a rhetorical prop in your argument, overall, I like that you seem to understand that lots of countries can be really discriminatory when it comes to their borders, and therefore how important it is for oppressed groups to have a guaranteed safe country to flee to if the need-
  • Y'all: The state of Israel is inherently evil and should be abolished.
  • Me: ...M'kay

#hot pizza man in a tree

  • If our best delivery man, Glenn, is hurt in any way you will pay for the pizza with your life

Welp, I did more.

I have this problem where every time I pick up my tablet I spend way longer than I intend to on anything that’s digital. It’s a bit of a jump from quick, shitty pencil doodles to this, but I was feeling kinda shitty about my drawing before I did this and it made me feel better.

Really wanted to leave out those extra silver mandibles, since he already has a mouth and so their purpose is questionable, but I realized that they balance out with the silver on his feet. Plus they tie this creative liberty-filled piece back to the actual set.

All in all, it feels kinda weird to have one of my only Bionicle art pieces be a Barraki of all things, but maybe now that I know I can sorta fudge biomechanical parts I’ll try more notable characters.

Fanart train has no brakes.

//I’ve been literally sitting here for the past few hours trying to think of an appropriate response to this. I tend to freeze up about these sort of topics, as I don’t want anything bad to ever happen to others, so I apologize that it’s taken me a bit to reply. Regardless, anon, I may not know who exactly you are, perhaps this is the first time you’ve spoken to me, or whatever else. 

But thank you. 

Thank you so so much. 

Everything that I’ve done here has been built upon by fans like yourself. Every comment, ask, reblog, like, opinion, shenanigans, and even the negative opinions I occasionally get have helped me to grow both as an artist and a person. Have helped Talon to grow as a.. grumpy assassin who stabby stabs everything he dislikes. …Point is, your time here is something that I’ve appreciated far more than you may think or know, you are so very very important to me, and I want you to know that.

I am so grateful to have fans like yourself, I’m so glad that I can draw things that I love and end up making someone else happy because of it, or even to inspire others  to pick up drawing again, like I’ve heard many times. It’s the best feeling in the world, to spread this joy onto other people, and I’m so glad that I was able to brighten your days. I hope to continue to do so, until the worst happens. Even then, though, perhaps we’ll meet again sometime somewhere else, yeah? 

Stay strong, friend. I may not know exactly what ails you, but keep fighting. If there is an emphasis on ‘might’ die, please, please, don’t give up fighting. I may not be there for you in person, but I promise you I will be there with you in spirit, and I wish you the absolute best in the days to come. 

Talon will be there with you too. You might not see him, but, I guarantee he’s there. For whatever comfort that may bring.
