but i never use it for anything

And one day you just take a step back and realise that this person, the person that you’ve allowed to hurt you so many times and you’ve given so many chances to, isn’t really anything special. In my case he was just a boy who could never appreciate me, who could never actually give me what I wanted, what I needed, what I deserved. He only wanted me when he couldn’t have me and I was so blinded by my feelings for him and so desperately wanted things to work out between us that I ignored how badly he treated me. His actions would never match his words but I overlooked it because I hoped one day they would eventually line up but of course they never did. I finally accepted that I was wasting my time on someone who didn’t care enough to be who I needed them to be. Anymore time I spent on him was just preventing me from finding someone who will care enough, who will care so much that I will always wonder why I wasted so much time on a boy who could never love me. It still hurts sometimes and I’m still getting over him but everyday I forget him a little bit less and I think that is the saddest yet most encouraging thing that could possibly come out of this.
—  how silly of me to think that I could change him when he can only change for himself.

*kicks down door* -inhales- I just wanna say I LOVE how you draw ladies in your art. They're all different and unique yet they're never treated negatively for it. And another thing: I am in love with The Queen. Is she interested in relationships? (Hell I'll be her coffee bitch, I'll do anything for her)

HEY THANK YOU…. I appreciate this a lot, I know I don’t really have a very ‘pretty’ style and I used to be really self-conscious about not being able to draw super conventionally pretty women, but… I don’t really want to anymore! I’m way more interested in ladies that look average, or weird, just like any of my dude characters. I’m still working on pushing my designs more and not being afraid of taking risks, but I’m glad you like my ladies already! They’ll never be treated negatively for how they look because physical appearance is not something I think ever needs to be pointed out, teased, or a measurement of someone’s worth. *thumbs up emoji*

Today is the day. The day you left us all. The day that still overwhelms us with complete sadness. But here I am, 40 years after your passing, and I can’t help but feel content.
Elvis, you would be so proud of your fans. They range in all ages. They all have different views. They all look and sound different. Nevertheless, we all have YOU in common. You unite us. You bring us together.
Elvis, your soul and music have brought together the best group of kids I have ever met. NOT only kids, but fans who have followed you for YEARS (who are still loyally standing strong at your side.) If there is anything I could tell you now, it would be that you have brought nothing but joy, not only to my life, but to men and women all over the world.
We love you, Elvis. You will never fade away. Not as long as I’m living.
Rest In Peace, you sweet sweet man.

Like I’m a girl who has been kinda “egh no thanks” in regards to anything feminine my whole life and my parents have fought me so hard with that, my mom used to (and at times still does) yell at me for not wearing makeup and not shaving and not drying my hair before going to school and not wearing earrings and sitting with my legs open, slouching, etc, but they still never discouraged me from having primarily “masculine” interests. I could like as much “boy stuff” as I wanted but I just had to look and act pretty while doing it.

But like im not gonna pretend like they would have been half as aggressive if I had been a boy who has “feminine” interests. If that were the case then it would have been so much worse. Boys can’t get away with having interests out of their gender stereotype the way girls can precisely because femininity is seen as so wrong and embarrassing when it’s expressed by men. And that’s horrible. It’s a big jumble mixture of homophobia and sexism and it affects boys in a very unique way.

I am absolutely 100% here for boys being as “feminine” as they want in all ways, until interests, clothing, makeup, mannerisms, what have you aren’t gendered anymore.

Although Tom is never really gonna be quite as mewman as Star in the show, i think it would pretty interesting for him to spout some mewman features or do some of their magic at some point.

Like find out he has small mewberty wings or occasionally he can use and spout an extra arm, or can even do mewman magic sometimes. ((I mean honestly we can’t prove he CAN”T do any of these things, it’s possible he could repress anything about him that’s mewman or not know how to unlock those abilities))

If Tom’s half of two magic creatures, it’d be cool to see them play around with it and take advantage of it.

Wow that hate anon. Um, well, I've never really sent you messages or anything but I have been lurking the OB fandom for awhile and I guess I'm not used to hate messages being spread around so I wanted to send you love, rainbows, and puppies just for the heck of it. Hope you have a good rest of the day! Jo x

That may be the most lovely message I’ve ever received. Bless your lil lurking heart. We weren’t mutuals before but we are now! Thanks for spreading some love today. Real life is such hot garbage right now. I need Tumblr to be my escape from the horrors of world news. A place where I can have intelligent convos with friends, celebrate AND critique all that is OB, unabashedly promote the work of talented clone club, and/or enjoy some really immature Ebro fangirling. Sometimes all of those things at once! I appreciate the puppies and rainbows, buddy. xoxoxoxo

wasabo  asked:

What program do you use to make your art? I've always wanted to learn how to make pixel art but i never knew what program to use

I use Pixaki, a pixel drawing app for iPad, but you can use anything that lets you zoom in to the pixel level!

(You can even use graph paper!)

For @enygmass and anyone else who’s stressing about University in a couple of weeks, I’ve got some advice for you guys. University can seem really daunting, especially if this is your first time living away from home, but I’m here to help you through as much as I can!

Now bear in mind, this is coming from the angle of the US higher education system. I unfortunately don’t have much knowledge of foreign universities, so pick and choose which advice applies most to your situation! (I also just realized it’s been a decade since I first went to college so, uh…things might have changed)

Unless a professor sends out an email specifically saying to have a textbook for the first day of class, DON’T BUY THEM UNTIL YOU GO TO THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS. Seriously. I know you guys want to be prepared for anything that’ll come your way, but I can’t tell you how many times I bought a book beforehand and literally never used it throughout the duration of the semester. Look at the syllabus, paying special attention to what readings will be assigned. Are there frequent readings from the textbook, or is it intended more as an additional reference guide? Unless you have a professor who crawled up from the innermost circle of hell and gives you surprise questions on an exam like “Where did the author of the textbook get their doctorate?” you can usually get a good idea if the textbook is actually necessary and plan accordingly.

Speaking of textbooks, 99.99% of the time you don’t need the latest and greatest edition, especially for your gen eds like history, literature, or even basic biology. Textbooks are a racket, and most publishers just rearrange page numbers or add new images and label it as the “New, 7th Edition!” You can usually find older editions for exponentially cheaper than the newer ones, so spring for those if you can find them.

For those of you who are worried about not making friends, might I draw your attention to clubs? I know it seems cliche, but universities—especially big public ones—often have a dearth of clubs to choose from. They’re a great way to meet new people who have similar interests to you and to provide low-stress enrichment outside of your dorm room. In my university tenure I was a part of a book club, a film club, the art history club, and I went to a few meetings of the swing dancing club, and those were just a very small sampling of everything VCU offered! All of them were great and helped distract me from academic stress. See if the university offers a meet-and-greet type of day where all of the clubs, sororities/fraternities, and other student life groups set up tables and take a stroll to see what’s around!

On the subject of academic stress, it’s going to happen. Professors don’t coordinate their assignments, especially when they aren’t even in the same department, so it’s going to feel like everything’s coming due at once. Remember to just take a moment and breathe. Take a break every couple of hours, go get a glass of water, or take a walk around the block to help re-center yourself.

I strongly advocate for study groups. Bear in mind that very little studying actually occurs at most study groups (so don’t use them as the only time you study), but it gives you a place to vent frustrations about difficult professors and collaborate on strategies for exams or big projects. There also might be someone there who has a new insight on something that’s been giving you a hard time, or has knowledge of helpful study aids.

The Dorm Plague is a real thing, especially in the fall semester. Living in such close quarters with a bunch of strangers creates a hotbed for colds to spread like wildfire, so be sure you’re prepared! Bring a little mini medicine bag with you, including ibuprofen/Tylenol, cough syrup, Nyquil/Dayquil, Mucinex, whatever you use when the Crud strikes. If you’re down and out with a cold, you probably don’t want to go out in freezing temps to the nearest corner store to get these, so it’s best to have them on retainer. Also have bandaids and Neosporin in case you get paper cuts or other cuts and scrapes.

Remember to take time for yourself. If you’ve got a roommate, it can sometimes feel like privacy is nonexistent. Find a place somewhere on campus where you can be alone for as long as you need to be. My favorite spot was the 5th floor of the library, which was a silent study floor.

Talk to your academic advisors! Admittedly some of them are more helpful than others, but they can help you with the nightmare that is scheduling for the next semester and make sure you’re staying on track.

And when it comes to scheduling, have a first, second, and third choice for both core classes and electives. Gen eds are usually pretty easy to get into because they often have bigger class sizes, but your major classes and choice electives usually fill up fast. I can’t tell you how many times I planned my schedule out only for everything to get ruined by a class filling up before I could get in.

Speaking of electives, use them as an opportunity to check out something you might be interested in or to give yourself a low-stress class to offset the madness of everything else. I studied art history and thus took a lot of film classes, which had the dual benefit of having very little actual homework while also helping to broaden my understanding of 20th century modernism. Some classes may have “major restrictions” (which means they’re only for people who are majoring in that area of study), but your advisor should be able to tell you if you can get an override into it.

Try not to pull all-nighters frequently. I know it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes, but frequent all-nighters will negatively impact both your health and your academic performance, and I guarantee the work you put out after going for 24 hours is not going to be great. Sometimes you’ll HAVE to do an all-nighter, especially around midterms and finals, but try not to make it a habit. I did and I ended up with a terrible throat infection my first semester at VCU. 0/10, do not recommend.

Talk to your professors! Some of them are going to be holy terrors, but others are genuinely kind and understanding. If you’re having difficulty with a deadline due to an overwhelming work load, see if they’ll work with you or give you an extension. It’s certainly not guaranteed, and many of them will most likely say no, but it never hurts to ask.

I’m here to tell you that not getting the grade you wanted in a class is not the end of the world, even though it might feel like it is. There will always be professors who are notoriously and unnecessarily difficult, and there will always be subjects that you personally struggle with. You might even have to retake a class. IT’S OKAY. Look at the mistakes that you made, learn from them, and move on.

Most of all, HAVE FUN. High school is nothing compared to college. It’s hard and stressful and sometimes it’ll reduce you to tears of frustration, but this is the place where you’ll really start to develop your identity, identify or solidify your interests and potential career paths, and where you will meet so many wonderful, interesting people. Remember to stay curious, to keep your mind open, and use this as a space to learn about as much as you possibly can. You can not only do this, you can CRUSH IT.

(A tv show, book, series–anything.): to be honest, i don’t want to forget things just to have to experience them again for the first time because that first time is very precious to me, and i experienced it at a very specific time in a very specific mindset - so how are we going to guarantee that my second first time experience is going to go as well as my original first time experience? I don’t want to lose the magic of that moment on the off chance i can experience and enjoy it as much as i did back then.

Something that never happened but I would have loved: Kes/Seven of Nine?

Originally posted by jackandrosetitanic-blog

I also would have loved this. I would have loved ANYTHING with Kes and Seven of Nine. It would be such an amazing dynamic! On one side a child who chose to leave her family and culture behind and on the other a child whose family and culture were stolen from her. And they both learn to be “adult” and human” together. Why was this taken from us???? I am forever saddened. 

And as a romance? Seriously, Kes is the number one BEST option for Seven. Because she’s not human, but she understands them. And she listens better than anyone on the ship. And she proved in her interactions with The Doctor that she doesn’t place expectations on people. She helps them figure out who they really are. And I think Kes is attracted to Tuvok so I can see her being attracted to Seven. Ugh, it would be so beautiful. Kes/Seven 5EVA

Send me a ship and I’ll give you my (brutally) honest opinion on it

Just because a lot of people come to me on here asking the same thing: Any dating site you find that is using my pictures is NOT me. Never used dating sites in my life and probably never will. Same goes for any social media: this is my only Tumblr blog (aside from the Patreon exclusive), I only have one Instagram account that is private and will stay private to anyone who isn’t my close friend or family member and I only have one Facebook account which, again, is private and will stay private to everyone. Anything else is fake. It sucks that a lot of people are being fooled and in some cases people have said that they developed feelings for the person they thought was me :( come on guys, not cool.

I hate how Black women have to be down for our men, wait on them in jail, be loyal above all things, accept their under achievements, ride or die, etc. Tears and pain are just a part of the contract for us. We never get anything good in return for our hardwork. This is abuse.

All that stuff you described, you aren’t obligated to be put up with any of it.

Is it abuse? Yes it is abuse. Mental, physical, verbal and everything in between. Do you have to stay and put up with it? That’s your choice to make.

Tears and struggling are NOT in the black girl’s contract. With all of this strength and divinity we have, there should be no reason why we aren’t living the best life that we can. Fear and lack of logic is what keeps us under these horrible terms and conditions. If you hate the “contract” that you’ve been given, go ahead and cry if you need to, but make sure you negotiate a better deal for yourself at the end of the day.

anonymous asked:

Hi miki! How do you stay so positive & not let what negative, ignorant people have to say about you or your relationship bring you down? I really admire that! And wish I could be the same way, but I care too much about what people think. Esp when they make false assumptions about my relationship it just rly crosses a line and depresses me. Any advice? You're so strong and you and hope are such beautiful, inspiring people :)

It definitely used to bother me a lot more. It hurt anytime someone said something negative about our relationship and would make me feel super insecure. But I matured within myself and in love and I just realized how irrelevant all of that negativity was. People are either jealous or bitter, so all those negative comments are only said to hurt.. they have absolutely no value. What random people say shouldn’t effect anything about your relationship, never let them win. Yeah it may sting a little but it’s best to just laugh at what people say (because usually it’s sooo far off) and to just love your love with no fear.
