this comes completely out of the blue but i just feel like saying how much i love making graphics and gifs on tumblr. I mean in itself it’s helllA nice being able to take a show or official work and manipulate it to my own tastes, and also i’ve learnt how to use ps to some degree!! But also making graphics in general has benefitted me and idk has made me become my own source of inspiration. This goes for anything for anyone really- not just making graphics. So eg if i want to imrpove a subject in school which seems to impossible to do i just think back on how i managed to imrpove and work so hard on graphics on tumblr

 so i went from not being able to make them less than a year ago, to being proud of a lot of them ; v ; and that really motivates me sometimes idk

                          ❤  birthdaybirthdaybirthday! ❤ 

              happy  birthday to the  fabulous   19  year old  lindsey! ( firstgryffindor! )      
              you may also know her as the greatest thing since pregrated cheese!

              anyways, deary, me and a couple other birthday elves just wanted to           
              letcha know how special you are. they had so much to say that i had         
              to cut a  few of  their lovely  messages short  in the  graphic,  so  the         
              original ( longer )  versions are  under the  cut. hope  this makes  you          
              smile and that your day is absolutely grand!!

                                                ❤   p  s  a  ❤

              it was  lindsey herself  who inspired  me to  pulled this  little birthday  
              note  together.  she’s  created  a  birthday  page  on  her blog so that
              she  can  shower  her  friends  with   l o v e   when  their  special  day 
              comes around.  

                                        while  i  was recruiting  peeps to  contribute, i  had  a 
              person mention that unless  everyone  recieved a  special something
              on  their  day,  others  would  feel  left  out  and  the  whole  caboodle
              would  create more harm  than good.  my response  was, well,  i can’t
              do it all, so should i just do nothing?

                                                                        but i realized, we’ve got a stinkin’
              h u g e  community here. surely  no one’s  birthday need  go unnoted.
              not if  we all  give a  little!  so i’m here to encourage all of you lovelies,
              if you  can, ask  your mutuals  when their birthdays are. then post ‘em
              onto your own  birthday page  or the like. don’t knock yourselves out!
              a short  and sweet  message is  all it  takes to  make someone’s  day.
              if   we  all   kept  that   in  mind,   maybe  nobody   would  forget   how
              ridiculously spectacular they are. (◡‿◡✿)

hihi, sorry, I'm really shy. I'm also interested in graphic design. Just wondering if you're employed in the business at all and if so do you have any advice about how to get there?x

nah im not sorry. i dont know if you’re studying it but i recommend you do. i got close to getting a small job doing graphic design for a local company a while back when i was volunteering doing graphic design for a volunteer agency thing while looking for a job.
my only recommendations are: study it, and make sure it’s something you love, you’ll get there.

ALSO: make sure you have a public portfolio on things like http://behance.net & http://dribbble.com, maybe do some freelance work.

In ancient days they had had wars with some of the dwarves, whom they accused of stealing their treasure. It is only fair to say that the dwarves gave a different account, and said that they only took what was their due, for the elf-king had bargained with them to shape his raw gold and silver, and had afterwards refused to give them their pay. If the elf-king had a weakness it was for treasure, especially for silver and white gems; and though his hoard was rich, he was ever eager for more, since he had not yet as great a treasure as other elf-lords of old.

happy 20th birthday sehun! ♡

this is going to be really long omg ;; lol i will try to keep this a decent length. first off, happy birthday oh sehun!!! (✿◠‿◠) i have a lot to say and i’m not sure where to start, but i want to thank you for being born into this world, for training so hard to achieve your dreams, for debuting in exo, for making me smile and laugh through just dancing, singing, smiling, joking around and just doing every little thing you do. thank you for being you. with your presence alone, you can make others smile — tearing up while reading a thank you letter to the hyungs, praying every night for the members, making those funny exclusive osh expressions [facial expressions and your famous lines - yehet, ohorat + new vocab that you included in your 2nd anniversary letter to the fans ehehehe], dancing with so much accuracy and passion [and oh my god i just love watching you dance], singing your cute and concise lines [내가 너무 미안해!!], uploading selcas with your signature : [ face and so many other things that i can’t count on my ten fingers ;; ah i’m getting so emotional. i was so blessed to have been able to watch you perform live, and i can’t get that image out of my head even though it’s already been almost 2 years. your beautiful slicked back hair [only you can pull that off hmmm - you can pull every hairstyle off our handsome babe], your instant pout when suho picked on you during member introductions, your gaze of disapproval when suho [again lmao] asked you to pass the water bottle, your eyes that turned into crescents when laughing at a joke that kai made ;; that was honestly one of the most memorable days of my life, and i will never forget it. SEHUN!!! [you cute pocket of sunshine] i’m at a loss for words because it’s just so difficult to express how much you mean to me. you have grown so much in the past two years, and seeing you grow and mature [even though you’re still super young at heart ehe] has really been such a wonderful journey. you’ve grown so much [yes in height loool] but i’ve also witnessed your mental growth and i am so proud of you. you’ve just captured my heart in so many ways [how is that even possible??] and your existence is a blessing in itself. i just wanted to let you know that i will be there for you [and all of the other lovely exo fans!!] every step of the way, supporting every decision you make, cheering you on [whether it’s through the computer screen or at an actual performance!], and helping you get back up when you feel like giving up. i love you so much, and your happiness is what i wish for the most. have an amazing 20th birthday, our dearest maknae, have fun spending it with the hyungs & eat a lot but don’t overwork yourself with practice for overdose!! i’m so excited to see you rock the stage again hehe, but what is most important is your health - so do take good care of yourself, remember to eat and drink a lot of water and get beauty sleep (even though your beauty is already at the highest level beep boop!) you will always be my little prince, dearest sehun. may you [my little prince & the world’s flower boyyyy] continue to work hard and excel at doing what you love! also a shoutout to your parents for being such wonderful parents and raising you so well!! one last shoutout to all the exo members for helping you through thick & thin! i love you oh sehun, and baby, thank you for being no one else but you.  


don’t think about it at all, just keep your head low, and don’t think about it all. soldier on, soldier on, keep your heart close to the ground. (+)
