but this is pretty much all you need

That awkward moment where Cal does something socially inept and you’re like, “What the actual hell is wrong with you? Do you have no understanding of other human beings?”

And then you realize that Cal was pretty much raised under a rock and has literally no idea what a messed up little puppy he is.

please read this if you like my original content

Hey all, I think at this point its cool to announce that i’m making a webcomic. I’ve been working on it since last year, but i’ve been going faster lately. 

My mental health has pretty much tanked since last november (take one guess why) and i’m in an awful place most days. I guess i needed to make something where things are okay, its something I can go back to every day, its a reason to hold on. 

this is why I haven’t been posting much art lately, i’ve been putting a ton of hours into it.

I was on the fence about posting it, because of anxiety and intrusive thoughts and my general fear of having people interact with me. But there’s a lot of not so great stuff going on right now, and the story is just about healing and finding a family and its a really positive thing that I think needs to exist. 

Once i’m done formatting a sideblog I’ll make an official post about it with like when updates are getting posted, i’ll probably post like 4 or five pages on wednesdays until i run out.

I currently have 21 pages completed that just need to be cleaned up, and 9 more sketched out with dialogue. As far as content goes I have a lot that I want to do, but I really push my abilities with it so idk how long hiatuses would last. If i had to guess what the total would be if I actually finished everything I wanted to do it would easily be 100+ pages.  

I don’t know how busy i’m going to be over the summer or in the future but its something I plan on working on for a while, its basically a coping mechanism I can’t live without. 

So yeah, if you like my OCs or just wanna read about gays in space that’s what its about. 

Soundtrack Spotlight: 8am by Steele (soundcloud link)

Scene: Stefan and Caroline ‘break up’.

Why: Listen, I don’t think a song has fit one of their scenes this perfectly since ‘Technicolour Beat’ for the bathtub scene. The quiet, atmospheric vibe, the nostalgic and bittersweet melody, the fact that the voice is a little breathy, like it’s a murmuring admission, and the lyrics. ‘Wild at heart but trust behind bars, no need to fall just to fly, we’re jumping hand in hand. I’m letting you go.’ ‘Content and exhaust, there’s a price and there’s a cost, every scar from all the loves I’ve lost.’ ‘Stars and snow you’re ready to go, I’ll leave before you can say it’s going to be okay. I’m letting you go.’ It’s basically a song about cutting out something heady and lovely before it can inevitably hurt you again, and that’s pretty much exactly where these morons I’m writing are at. It’s rare as hell for me to find a song that fits a scene both in sound and lyrics this well (in large part because I’m lazy but shhhh), so I’m jazzed about it.

therapist: so tell me about yourself

me: you need to know before any of this that i am extraordinarily self-aware and have been dealing with this on my own for more than a decade so probably won’t respond well to traditional therapy techniques as i’ve tried pretty much everything that you can find on the internet for a long enough time to build up a tolerance for it all so you might have to work harder

therapist: alright then i’m going to suggest something a little different, you might have heard of this one but maybe give it a shot… it’s called…. “mindfulness”

me: alright so we have 45 minutes still but i’m just gonna go ahead and leave now.

6 HABITS FOR MAXIMUM PRODUCTIVITY

These are the 6 habits that I try to practice in order to be my most productive self.

✔️1. Healthy Habit Tracker

The best way to be healthy, both mentally and physically, is to track your habits. This will help you to monitor when you complete the daily tasks you have set out to do. For example how much water you have drunk, if you got enough sleep and whether you have done exercise. This can also be extended to things like reading or doing certain daily school tasks which are pretty routine.

✔️2. Write It ALL Down

It helps to have everything written down that you need to do, and how much you need to get done in a day. Being able to see all of your to-do’s in one place each day will help you keep tabs on what you still have to do and the time frame in which you should be doing it.

✔️3. Plan Ahead

Make sure you aren’t leaving things for the last minute. In my opinion, if you want to be the most efficient version of yourself, you need to plan in advance. Set aside time each day to plan the next few days or week ahead. Try as much as you can to diarise certain tasks and then plan how you are going to stick to them. By having deadlines you will motivate yourself to stick to them, and can get so much more done in a day than if you play it by ear. Trust me. [tip: reward yourself for particularly difficult tasks — like getting some new washi tapes]

✔️4. Keep Your Journal on You

Always remember to keep your journal in the same place. I always leave mine on my desk next to my bag, so if I’m in a hurry I can never forget it. This may sound silly but making a habit of always having your journal on you is important as you never know when you will need to add something to your list, or to reference your journal. theres no point having an organised planner but you never have it on you to reference, which means you may forget half of whats in it.

✔️5. One Hour of Admin

No one likes to do admin. But its a necessity and putting it off will only make it worse. Set aside one hour of your day, without any distractions, to get all your admin done. Be it making calls and getting small things at home sorted that have been nagging you, or filing notes, and even getting things in your room in order. This would be the time to get your life in order, without doing anything that really ticks off big items.


✔️6. Treat Yo Self.

Im a solid believer in treating yourself. Long afternoon naps and strong cups of coffee, my two favourites. While treating yourself may not increase your productivity directly, and if taken too far could counter it, but by taking some tim to look after yourself you will feel less stressed and will be able to function at a higher level. I know that when I get too stressed I become forgetful and worry more about not getting things done than actually spending time on getting those things done, which is just plain counterproductive. So I invest a couple minutes a day to treat myself. It can even be a nice facial and doing my eyebrows, to having coffee with a friend at my favourite cafe. By looking after your own mental health you will be doing so much more for yourself than just having a few minutes a day of treating yourself, you will foster a healthier and happier mindset that can help you excel.

demonsanddogweeds  asked:

A silly question, but here goes; Why is a concave stomach a sign of being in shape for dogs, but in wolves a bad thing. Is this purely a question of food availibility, or is there some physiological difference there?

I’m honestly not sure entirely what you’re asking about, but I think you might be talking about the part of the dog that is called the tuck. 

This is a photo of Fawkes, owned by @impish-iggies​. You can see that he’s got a pretty deep chest and then his torso tapers off so that he’s a very narrow dog right at his withers. That little narrow point right before his back legs is called thet tuck. This is a correct look for sighthounds like Fawkes because when he’s running at full extension and needs to get his legs under his body again, having too much bulk there would hinder his movement. 

However, this isn’t correct for all dogs. 

This is a lab from a UK kennel. (Yes, he doesn’t really look much like pet labs - this is the breed standard conformation). Notice that he has a deep chest and basically no tuck. This is correct for the breed because they don’t gallop like sighthounds - they need to be able to push through vegetation and get lots of power from a sturdy, compact body. 

This Grey Wolf does have a bit of a tuck, although it’s obscured by the fur. It’s not as intense as that of a sighthound, but it’s still present. The wolf doesn’t have a lot of chest, so while it has a slight tuck it doesn’t appear to be as distinct a difference as in other dogs. I wonder if you’re thinking of photos where wolves are severely underweight, and so they appear to have much more of a tuck than they should. 

Here’s an Ethiopian wolf, for contrast - definitely a very different body structure, with a very short chest and minimal tuck.

Masterlist

~~~

You wake up feeling cold, so cold that you’re almost shivering. Your head hurts and despite the fact that you slept all night, you feel like you haven’t slept in days. You look over to your boyfriend to see that he’s still fast asleep. Lifting his arm, you scoot closer to him, hoping to steal some of his warmth, but it doesn’t help. You still feel cold.

Marvel POC Week : Day 1: Favorite Female POC » Cindy Moon/Silk

Shopping Spree

In the city where my party currently lives, entering a business establishment comes with certain…challenges.

(1st session) DM: You’ve all been called to meet at a tavern know as the Dragon’s Flagon.
Cleric: What if I don’t want to stay there?
DM: There is a nicer inn up the road named the Resty Nesty.

-

Ninja: Is there like, a magic shop in this town?
DM: Investigation check *player rolls* On the main avenue in the business district you find a shop called the Arcana Cabana…

-

Ranger: Where can I shop for weapons?
DM: They carry pretty much anything you might need at Bloodbath and Beyond.
Ranger: Even magic weapons?
DM: Most likely not. You’d need someplace more high-end. Probably Killards.

-

Witch: I need somewhere to practice my alchemy. Would Arcana Cabana have what I need for that?
DM: No, that’s more a place for magic items and enchantments. Make an Investigation check. *player rolls* It takes a while
But off the beaten path you manage to find a little place called the Ocean of Potions. *players all groan*

-

NPC: No, the high priest isn’t here. He’s taking lunch at the moment.
Bard: And where might that be, just in case we happened to be hungry?
NPC: Well, I’m not rightly sure, but his favorite place is a restaurant right here in the Temple District. It’s called the Tabersnackle.

The book has a maroon jacket and embossed spine. It’s older, and he can tell when he picks it up and leafs through the pages. The musty smell reaches his nose and makes him sneeze into his arm. With a sniffle, he fans through the book, and it doesn’t take him long to realize it was one of Erwin’s.

His heart seizes, and he leaves the book open in his lap. He thinks about Erwin every day, sometimes every second, but Erwin’s never a surprise. Thinking of him is a constant, and the physical things that conjure Erwin are cataloged and sterilized. When Levi encounters them, he does so with bravery. Indifference. He has Erwin compartmentalized at this point into his psyche. The only place Erwin could affect him is in his dreams.

But this book. This book is different. It has Levi spooked, and he isn’t sure how to move forward. He turns a page. The language is old, the information flowery and, at this point, incorrect. It must have been Erwin’s father’s, and somehow having that knowledge made the book that much more difficult to hold. Another page and he discovers it’s talking about the ocean. His breathing gets caught in his chest as he reads.

Oceans are bodies of water with high salt content. They can range in color depending on location, from deep sapphire to gleaming turquoise. It is predicted that the ocean covers more of the surface of the world than land. Nobody has ever been able to touch the deepest depth of an ocean. Strange creatures are thought to originate under the surface.

Levi slaps the book shut and places it next to him. He brings his knees up to his chest and wraps his arms around his legs.

It wasn’t anything like that. The ocean was beautiful and living and moving. It was vast and mysterious and deep. It tasted different, like an exotic delicacy. And he supposed at the time that it was. They had never tasted freedom like that before–and that’s all the ocean was.

Freedom.

His chest grows tight, and there’s a sound emitting from his throat that’s foreign and hoarse. God dammit, he should have been there. He should have been at his side, their cloaks catching the wind like the sails of the ships illustrated on the book pages. He had fought the longest and hardest out of all of them. He got them all here. If it wasn’t for him…

The sob comes out long and hard, and Levi has never felt something shake through him so violently. His moaning cry echoes in the room as the tears pool and drop from his eyes. It wasn’t anything like that. It wasn’t some simple pages on a piece of paper. It was so fucking beautiful and Erwin wasn’t there. He wasn’t there, and it was the ugliest thing he had ever seen in his whole life. He hated the ocean. He fucking hated it.

His hands ball into his hair as he pushes his forehead into his knees. He struggles to breathe, but he doesn’t care. His sobs turn silent as he gasps in air. Erwin wasn’t there, and he’s not here now, and he can’t fucking stand it. Tears fall salty like the waters of the ocean, and he wishes so badly to drown in them.

The text above is an excerpt from a ficlet my lovely @gouguruheddo wrote for this pic to rip my heart completely into pieces <3 Thank you love.

Sick Headcanons

When Alexander gets sick, he irritates everyone saying that he can work. Once, Jefferson found him in the bathroom, passed out at work.

Thomas gets moody when he’s sick. He snaps at anyone and everyone.

James is sick pretty much all the time, so he’s pretty resistant to most antibiotics.

Lafayette gets hyperactive, bouncing all over the place before crashing, sicker than before.

Hercules doesn’t get sick. He only gets the sniffles.

John gets extremely lazy and mellow. When someone asks if he needs anything, he just stares at them, like he’s looking at their soul.

((Lmao hope you like???))

KITTEN DAY RE-BLOG-A-THON

So in general I try to keep my posts consistent with just drawing updates and text answers, which means re-blogs almost never happen. 

However for today I would love to share Kitten Day with everyone. I already feel my spirits lifting and I want to spread that feeling around to anyone that needs it. If you draw a kitten, post it, and let me know, I will re-blog it. They don’t have to be pretty, you don’t have to be a pro. Just draw a kitten. 

Hope you all are having a good day and I really hope to see some baby cats :D

>Also happening on Twitter. I don’t tweet much but heck if I’m gonna tweet a crap load of kittens today. https://twitter.com/heddarsketch.

I read the disney animator interviews and it said “designing/animating female characters is much more difficult than with male characters” but look. The females look almost identical with slight changes, so what’s so difficult about it? Then it became obvious. The female characters aren’t allowed to be flexible. They’re limited. Male characters make ugly faces if needed to show emotions, but the females aren’t allowed to. They have to be pretty all the time, which is why the artists find it difficult to work with them. It’s a shame for girls to be taught that they can’t be ugly even for a second. Have you seen Maui and Moana sketches? They have Maui making ugly faces, sad faces, happy, scared and all, but they only made Moana sketches of her slightly sad, normal and happy faces. They’re scared to freely animate her face and I’ve noticed while watching the film. For example when she sings “how far I’ll go” in the very end of the song you can see her open mouth looking wrong, as if her jaw is gonna break. That’s because since they weren’t allowed to design her freely, she looked stuck and limited. Like, none even have wrinkles when they smile, which is insane! But male characters do. Since I also study animation, this pisses me off.

WHAT AN ENTP WANTS TO SAY TO ALL OF THE TYPES.

RATIONALS (NT)

ENTJ-  You scare me. You are such and incredible leader, how do you do that?? But also I hate authority and feel a need to disagree with you at every turn because you’re so bossy. You’re not as cool as you think you are, but you’re almost as cool as you think you are and that’s pretty damn cool. Be my friend.

ENTP- Fuckin’ chill out you memelord. You’re either coasting through life or putting WAY to much effort into shit. You’re a bit of a narcissistic fuck but you’re still my favourite type (*coughs*). You’re too excitable and too much of a dick and you’re personality doesn’t make sense. Stop being mean to you’re friends. Learn to be more comfortable with emotions, it’ll be important later on in life. Be the friend that can cheer others up with jokes when they don’t really wanna talk about what’s wrong.

INTJ- You’re cool, you get shit done and you’re a bit of a supervillian. What’s not to love? You’re a rare bird. There aren’t many of you out there, but you are important. If you weren’t here, who else would the ENFP’s annoy? You’re a behind the scenes leader most of the time, pulling the strings from a safe (and smart distance) but you aren’t afraid to get you’re hands dirty. You’re good at shit.But don’t forget, you’re not superhuman. Remember other people have these pesky things called emotions, be wary of them STILL i want you to be proud of you’re inherent assholeness.

INTP-  Mad scientist. I’m constantly searching for your approval because of my unresolved daddy issues and it freaks me out. Yes, you are a daddy. Some of you have your heads shoved up a little too far in you’re own arse. Just because you’re introverted and intuitive and darn cold, does not make you better than others honey. Basically, you’re a condescending shit. But hey I still put you on this weird pedestal, so we’re both guilty. You’re the genius on tv shows that isn’t diagnosed but falls on the aspergers spectrum somewhere.

IDEALISTS (NF)

ENFJ-  Baby, I worship the ground you walk on. You are so cool, calm and controlled while still being awesome, enthusiastic and excitable. Don’t be my friend, date me. But stop trying to fix everything. Think about yourself a lil okay buddy, and use logic sometimes too. Actually scratch all that, you’re perfect, I love you.

ENFP-  You are a beautiful, annoying bastard. You’re too nice and I don’t feel comfortable making mean jokes at your expense (because you’d probably take it seriously and cry yourself to sleep), but you have effortless charm. Stop thinking about the individual and start thinking about the bigger picture, you’re not realistic. Be my friend, but not like close friend, y'know.

INFP-  Hello, the human equivalent of tumblr. Fuck. People either love you or hate you. I don’t know where I fall on that scale tbh. Sometimes you’re just a little too much honey, I’m not sensitive enough for you. Other times you are too precious for this world and I just wanna wrap you up in a blanket and protect you. I am strangely attracted to you despite how awkward you probably think you are. You have a lot of knowledge in that head of yours. Be that person I have a weird co-dependant relationship with, that really isn’t healthy but I can’t exactly live without you and I’m not sure why.

INFJ- Ah INFJ, I haven’t met many of you but BOY, are the ones I know pretentious. You’re one of the least common MBTI type, and you probably know and take pride in this. You’re good at reading people, I know, but you can just talk to me instead of analyse from a distance bud. You’re ultimately very cool and creative, a little bit of a know it all but it’s justified. You’re a sweet bundle of joy and I love you. Be my best friend. You’re good at being a friend. Really good.

GAURDIANS (SP)

ESFP-  I like you a lot kid, you remind me of a younger me. We shouldn’t get along but I love/envy you. You’re caring and you have a great childlike spirit. Make some art and ramble to me some more. I seriously appreciate you so much. You bring me back down to  the ‘now’ with you’re crazy impulsive attitude and caring demeanour. Just learn to listen to me a lil more when I tell you you’re thinking with you’re heart instead of you’re brain again. You do it a lot, buddy. Be my lover.

ESTP-  You’re cool man. You’re Ferris Bueler. You’re a salesman that’s constantly selling me on your personality. Look we get it, you’re good with one liners and you’re athletic and everyone loves you, but also hey, think about others you little sociopathic flirt. Also, sometimes people really DO know more than you, I know! Crazy. Be my Idol.

ISFP-  You probably reaallly like music. Chill out buddy, I don’t know much about you but you seem stressed and too fierce for ur adorable demeanour. I know you are your own individual beautiful creative person, you don’t need to tell me. People DO care about you, i know sometimes you doubt that, but you got this life in the bad. You’ll probably never grow out of your angsty teen years tbh but it’s okay, find yourself an ISFJ and you’ll be okay.

ISTP-  So you’re just as cool but less attainable, loner ESTP. You’re in control of your own everything but also out of control and mildly self destructive? Be the mysterious kid I rarely talk to, but everytime I do I fall in love with you a little bit.

ARTISANS (SJ)

ESFJ-  Hey there soldier. In the best case scenario, you’re cutie Monica Geller, that’s a lil anal and mildly manipulative but really! very! sweet!. In the worst case scenario you are literally my worst nightmare. Your the squad’s glue tho. Sometimes you offer a cool third perspective, but you over simplify things and don’t try to understand my crazy theories and that’s annoying. Learn to get over yourself a lil, stop playing the victim buddy and compromise. Be my friend in a few years when you learn to self reflect better.

ESTJ-  You’re a manipulative bitch. You’re so judgemental, you’re Rachel McAdams in Mean Girls. You’re pretty cool. Even more of a rampant psycho than ENTJ. I don’t like you all that much (and something tells me you don’t really care) but I respect you a LOT. Stay a safe distance away from me and please don’t judge me. You’re too savage.

ISFJ-  Hey my emo saviour. You understand everybody and nobody truly understands you. You’re the reliable Colin Firth that the world of Bridget Jones’s run to after their crazy escapades with Hugh Grant. Just remember to have standards baby, and don’t accept everyone that runs into you’re arms. You’re worth more than what most people are willing to give. Be my favourite sweet emotional little kid brother (even if you are female.)

ISTJ-  You say 'interesting’ a lot. If life were a tv show, you’d be a sassy little hate muffin that tumblr idolised that everyone would remark didnt get enough screen time. You’re all business and sometimes you should let down that gaurd fam :) Think about people a little bit more bud. I respect you. I’ll be your friend! But it will probably take three years to build up our relationship and it will probably be accidental, but im here for u anyway.
