cake for the people

anonymous asked:

What do you do when you're invited to a birthday party? I don't want anyone to notice that I'm eating less :(

things you can tell people are
-you’re sick
-you have a stomach ache
-you don’t like cake
-you just had a family dinner at home
-your doctor thinks you might have a gluten allergy

things you can do are
-only eat the cake and not the icing (tons of people do this because they don’t like sugary icing)
-dance a lot/play party games
-don’t idly snack, save your calories for a piece of cake
-try to relax and enjoy the party (you won’t gain weight from one slice of cake and pizza)
-if it’s a big party then you can probably get away with just putting the cake down somewhere and saying you ate it (there’s normally plates and cups everywhere at parties so no one would know it was yours)

of course i’d say just try to enjoy yourself and eat what you want to eat because one day of junk food won’t make you gain. that’s why people that diet have cheat days, y'know. i hope that this could help you somewhat, be safe and be kind to yourself ☺️

Utopias

While we would live separated into Sun signs, everyone is welcome to come and go, to pass by, to be welcomed, to stay over, to visit. If I’m going to dream, I’m going to dream that life would be peaceful at least, joyful at most.

Aries: Rocky and volcanic, a heaviness to the air. Everyone moves with urgency, with energy, with inspiration. There are dragons, friendly but fierce, creatures straight from the pages of fantasy novels. Competition is encouraged, but so is being protective, the merging of strength with something warm.

Taurus: Green, forests, streams, flowers, trees that seem to communicate and break away, that move should you look away for too long. People live in cottages, sweet smelling cakes filling the air in the days, amber and musk at night. Everyone who passes through is well fed and looked after. Leisure is considered a virtue here.

Gemini: Bright and colourful paths to follow, interweaving routes that lead to places undiscovered. The weather changes as they do. Shows are put on, laughter and giggles the soundtrack, and no day is the same. Everyone greets those that pass through, a conversation the key to affection. Libraries fill rooms Beauty and the beast style.

Cancer: Lagoons, beaches, caves to hide out in, pretty with glistening gems and rocks, places to reflect, to see the water move where the mermaids swim. There is time out for every emotion, every sensation to be realised, to be validated, and sitting and dreaming is the perfect way to pass time. Loved ones are kept close. There is power to the sound of the ocean.

Leo: Glamorous and built up, high buildings and fashionable aesthetics, modern, like a city but with quiet corners. Shows and films flash all day, free entry of course, and comfort and luxury is abundant. No one is considered too loud or enthusiastic, the more the merrier, shame is forbidden. If you are quiet enough however you can hear the bellowing lions roar in the distance, protective.

Virgo: Modest towns, green, but practical, everything you need at least once over is accessible. Little critters hop around. People greet each other with a slight nod of the head, a smile, then on their way to learn, to lend a hand, yet at the end of the day they meet each other, even if not much is said. At night, there is quiet to fall into fantasy, to create, to show a touch of genius.

Libra: Open spaces and airy, mountainous, a place to breathe, to balance, to think. The wind makes their hair dance. Houses seem balanced on the edges, views to envy. There are rooms like studios, a place for controlled messiness, for the creativity of Venus to express, yet the rest of the housing is immaculately designed. Most live in pairs, yet the wider community is also cherished.

Scorpio: Beautiful Gothic designs, castles and ruins, yet light seems to dance. Privacy is respected, but so is connection, and inauthenticity sticks out like a sore thumb here. There are creatures that you cannot quite tell if they are ugly or cute, a duality. Devotion and loyalty are held up as virtues. There is a dark humour here, but also great wisdom.

Sagittarius: Green and open, places to run and tumble, but also places to sit and ponder. A natural prettiness, but not heavily designed, natural, placed by the hands of something higher. Sport and competition is encouraged though not valued more than the mental and spiritual talents that their inhabitants gift to the world. There is a warmth in the air, a free spiritedness, a place to visit for anyone that feels blue.

Capricorn: Built up buildings, a big city, classy and simplistic design. Everyone progresses here, advances, creates personal ambitions along with shared ones. Hard work is a virtue, but so is being supportive and stable, extending a hand to those that need advice and solid method. Everyone walks with an air if dignity, but followed closely by a sarcastic grin and shining smile should someone break the poised pace.

Aquarius: A place of technology, pointing to the future, like a cross between a built up city and a science lab. If cars will one day fly, here will be the place to have them first. Can be overwhelming on a first visit, not knowing how anything works, but the fascination is more than enough compensation. The people here are odd and eccentric, but also speak with such interest and offbeat passion that it is infectious.

Pisces: Misty, iridescent, reflective, one colour seems to blend into another, can be confusing for the senses upon first visiting, but there is a point where it becomes easier to acclimatise. The floor doesn’t feel solid, like you could fall right through, but if you concentrate hard enough, you see the streams pass through, pretty rainbow lights dancing on the water. Everyone walks with a sleepiness here, takes time to gather how they feel.

The reason so many people hate certain Overwatch characters like Symmetra, Torb, Junkrat, Mercy, etc, are because these characters have mechanics that are the furthest from your typical FPS, so more people don’t know how to play them well and are pressured out of trying by those enforcing the meta. 

It takes an entirely different skillset than “point and shoot” to maximize these characters. With Symmetra, Torb and Junkrat, you have to be unpredictable and creative with where you put your tools, yourself, and where you will do most damage or help your team the most. They’re “damage support” and defensive, utilitarian characters whose kit needs to be maximized in a way that supports the team. And people hate them more often than not because they usually end up picking up more damage than the DPS, which is where all the vitriol comes from.

They’ll give excuses like “oh you don’t need to aim with them” but you never hear these excuses when it comes to Winston and Zarya–because that’s not actually why people hate these characters; it’s just a convenient excuse to hide their lack of proficiency. 

With Mercy, her skill is specific to healing, so DPS are unwilling to play her but will turn around and say it takes no skill to play her–because they judge Mercy by their own standards, ie damage and elims, while Mercy’s skill lies almost entirely in healing and surviving. It’s like judging a strawberry cake for not having the most chocolate sprinkles. 

The only reason people, mostly DPS mains, say it “takes no skill” to play these characters is because they don’t have the skill. They don’t have the kind of skill that is required for these characters, and are embittered by this fact. 

Meta is not a balanced team composition. Meta is based on popular tactics and compositions, and people enforce the meta because they don’t want to adjust to “unusual” picks. A balanced team comp is that of people adjusting to each other’s strengths and picking up each other’s weaknesses, regardless of hero pick.

Meanwhile people hate Mei and Bastion because they are terrifying merchants of death, but pretty gr9 to have on your team

Let’s be honest, Gina Linetti isn’t gonna have a gender reveal cake for her baby cuz she of all people knows that gender is a social construct. She gonna have a zodiac sign reveal cake. She cuts into the cake and sees that there’s crab meat inside because oh goody! her baby is gonna be a cancer. Gina Linetti ain’t giving birth to no gemini!

do u ever spend literal days thinking about the baffling layers of nested self-aware satire in this single four-word caption in the Slayer’s Cake commercial because I do
