can you see my effort ;~;

I can be the sweetest thing, but that doesn’t mean I always give people my best—especially those people I have crossed paths with.

I’m sorry that I turned your life upside down and made you think that you had found heaven in my arms. It’s not that I am uncaring or broken, but that I became so wrapped up in loving you that I didn’t realize I was breaking myself. I let you get close, when all the while there was a wall that no amount of effort would ever let you climb over. So even though I don’t like to see people hurt, I still couldn’t help but hurt those who wanted to be close to me, especially you.

I’m sorry I broke your heart, together with mine. I’m sorry that I’ve hurt you with my words even more than my actions, my selfish act. The way that I can twist words to create a smile across even the most bitter of hearts is a beautiful gift, but it’s not one I always use for good. The thing about being able to see the soul behind someone’s eyes is that I also know exactly where to put the knife and twist deeply so that they hurt just as much as I do. I don’t often know when to stop, or when enough is enough, and because I follow the beat of my heart more than anything else, I can rationalize even the most horrible truths to myself. And so I am sorry that I never gave you the best parts of me, and that to me you became only lessons that I needed to learn. I didn’t always intend to hurt you, but I know that doesn’t make it hurt any less.

I know my sorry, won’t fix what I’ve done-I do really sorry and I mean it.

So I have a lot of people begging (INTENSE begging) me to do another voice chat stream, but I’m honestly still recovering from that so I will do it on these conditions:

Either I

A) Reach 6000 followers. You guys can speed up that process by promoting my blog. This option makes the stream inevitable, so it’s guaranteed to happen. It’ll just take a while.

or 

B) I receive at least 50 pieces of SimplyPeridot™ appreciation art (drawings, comics, videos, stories, songs, etc.) but you have to put actual effort into them and can only submit one a day. 

As you can see I’m trying to make this kinda hard, hehe. Good luck! If you don’t like the huge number of 50, blame the members of the discord chat

Doing your best does not mean doing the most.

Doing your best means doing what you can. If you can’t get dressed, just put on something warm. If you can’t cook, just grab something quick. If you can’t shower or do hygiene stuff, do some wipes and mouthwash and try again later. Effort is relative to your state of being.

Please don’t compare your struggle to anyone else’s. Any move foreword is progress, even if you can barely see it.

Local troublemakers.

I can see Kuroo and Bokuto not getting along at first, considering all the house rivaling and all; each having their own troublesome career. Then one day getting a detention together, by accident of course. They talk and they end up admiring each other’s ways of troublemaking; deciding it would be a great idea to combine efforts:”)

“Pardon me are you Aaron Hamilton, Sir?”
“That depends who’s asking?”
“Oh well sure Sir, I’m Alexander Burr. I’m at your service, Sir. I have been looking for you.”

In which Aaron is the young immigrant and Alexander the heir to the Burr legacy.

you know what really fucking grinds my gears? the fact that amazing organizations like You Can Play can spend so much time, money, and effort doing their best to make hockey inclusive - they can get players to use rainbow tape, they can have players and coaches release statements, they can encourage players to speak up against homophobia - but all of that means jack shit when a kid can still be watching his favorite team play and see some douchebag like andrew shaw using the f-slur. i know it was a while ago, and i know he apologized, but that doesn’t undo the fact that, no matter how hard YCP works, kids will still see shit like that and think “yeah, it still happens on the ice” or “yeah it probably happens in the locker room.” it’s fucking bullshit that so many people can work so hard just so that people aren’t scared to play hockey and be open about their sexuality, and some dumbass can fuck it all up in .2 seconds bc he didn’t agree with a fucking tripping call.

make every effort to bring a smile on your face and bask in happiness all day when I manage to do so even if it’s just for one moment. But then I see the way your eyes sparkle when you see her and that’s when I know- in the movie of my life, I am that side heroine who is doomed to have her heartbroken just so the hero can realise his love for the heroine. I am that girl who everyone knows is bound to be dumped at the end without any closure just so the hero can meet the love of his life. But I can’t - won’t do it anymore. I can’t be anyone’s consolation prize. I deserve so much more. So I turn away ‘cause I am the writer of my own f*cking movie. I won’t tolerate this sh*t for anyone. I owe this to myself.

Lance: personally i like shaving my legs, i like how they feel after words. it’s nice and soft

Keith: yeah, i can see why you’d like that

Keith: though personally, i don’t really like shaving my legs. it takes too much effort and time

Keith: besides, i like my leg hair. it’s soft, and it kinda reminds me of fur

Keith: wAIT SHIT-

Lance: [bursts out laugh-crying] 

We all know our favorite banshee and her faithful sidekick would have been out there yesterday marching and fighting for change.

Hopefully those efforts will not go unnoticed.

This drawing was made in an effort to raise awareness in groups that perhaps don’t keep up politically or don’t see much of it on their dashboards. It was made to inspire people to go out and fight. If your favorite characters can do it, you can too, and we know that Stiles and Lydia would not stand by as this injustice went on in our country. They are smart and kind and courageous, just as all of you young men and women are.

We can do this. We can make the change.

He will not divide us.

Are you allowed to love? I thought that was forbidden for a Jedi.

More Padmé photos from autumn this year!
One thing that people never seem to notice about this costume is all the hours of embroidery i put into this costume. And no, I’m not talking about the bodice embroidery (which took quite some effort too of course haha), but all the chain stitching and sequins I attached to the skirt.
I spent ages putting it all together, and there’s still spots on it I need to finish, but I’m so damn proud of this costume and I can’t wait to improve upon it even more in the future!

You can see my making of this costume here!

DO NOT RE-POST ANYWHERE ELSE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.

Thanks to everyone for the many notes of the previous post, I did not expect so many people to like my story. 515 notes for me is a lot in just a week, seriously many thanks to all.

Although the previous one was a bit short and was not done with as much effort as the next one I come to show them I hope I can reach the 1,000 notes!

Thanks also for my first 100 followers, I had never had so many in my life. ;;;

And then, there is not much to add at what I am saying, just thank you all.

By the way.

I’ll keep doing MCXV stuff. Or how would you like it? V deserves to be happy too.

I will also create a “Custom MC” would you like to see it with V? Or do I continue with the one I am currently using?

Note:

It took me 2 weeks to finish it, I was a bit busy with school, and almost didn’t have time to progress.

I was yesterday and today from day at night finishing this, I also I’ve not slept, and I forgot my homework, hahaha. TT w TT

Please enjoy it very much.

PLEASE DO NOT REPOST MY WORK OUTSIDE OF TUMBLR

You can link my tumblr posts on other social media sites BUT DO NOT REPOST THEM. I put in my time and effort to make these so I can make you guys laugh, and I enjoy making them but I hate seeing my work being disrespectfully reposted.

If I catch any more of my work reposted on Twitter, Tumblr, Google+ (or any other platforms) I will stop making these. Yes, it seriously pisses me off THAT much. So don’t be that one rude bitch who ruins it for everyone. I DON’T CARE IF YOU GIVE ME CREDIT ON YOUR TWEETS/POSTS, right clicking and saving and then uploading it onto your account IS STILL STEALING, SO DON’T FUCKING DO IT OK? :) 

On a happier note, here is a masterlist of all my fake subs in this series (in order from old to new):

Hey all!

long time no see! life has been crazy! i’m going to make a real conscious effort to keep a much better schedule for updating this moving forward! my sincerest apologies!

Here are a few shots from my last trip to London! I got to do a lil shoot with Thomas Farthing with the homie ryan davies-hall! as you can see we smashed it!

Shot by Dani Dovie-Dotse.

as always my beautiful friends,

Yeee I’m back with some content: my shot for @gemanimate #2
I put a lot of effort in it despite my graduation and other stuff (portfolio/website/CV/HALP). Pearl turned out better than Rose, I know. But I really tried my best with her (don’t know how many hours I spent animating rose’s hair…).
I think I had a good idea when I decided to use my style instead of SU style (like in my past shot for the first gemaninate) and I think I improved a lil bit since then. But let me know what you think! :)
Can’t wait to see the whole project! There are so many high quality shots!!


see you as soon as I can with the Wip video.

Alright. As you can see in the blog URL, I am a lazy witchling. I don’t put any more effort into things than I have to. It’s a character flaw, what can I say.

Yet, I decided that this year, I’m going to do something witchy every day. Some days it might be spells, others it might be tarot reading, or working on my grimoire, or making witchy craft items. In order to keep track of all of this, I have been using a planner. In this planner, every day I write down what I did.

This has led to me noticing a pattern. On days when I don’t work, I can’t muster up the energy to do anything too complicated. Those are the days I end up doing a simple tarot read, or lighting a candle with a sigil carved into it. On days when I DO work, I come home and have all sorts of energy and focus for witchy stuff.

Since I know the pattern now, I can plan for low energy days by doing extra magic on high energy days to give my future self a little boost. It’s like taking excess energy from my Now self and storing it so my Later self can use it.

Some ways I’ve done this:

  • Simple knot magic. There’s that thing about witches tying the wind into a knotted cord and then sailors untying it when needed. I do that with energy. At the end of the day, if I’m still feeling too wired to go to sleep, I will sit down, focus, and ‘tie up’ excess energy into a cord. Then I’ll take the cord with me to work and untie the knots as necessary for a little boost.
  • Tea light candles and essential oils. Some days I’ll put a tealight or three on an electric mug warmer, let the candle melt, drop in some essential oils relevant to my intent, then let the candles cool. Sigils can be carved into the wax, incantations can be said, or you can leave them as is. But I put the candles away in a box (labelled so I remember which is which!), and on low energy days, I’ll just grab a candle and light it. Past Me has already done the work so Future Me doesn’t have to.
  • Spell kits. You know in the grocery store you can pick up spice kits that come with pre-measured spices you just add to your cooking without having to do any of the work? You know you can also do that with spells? I bought a pack of tiny plastic bags (like the kind spare buttons come in) at the craft store for about two dollars for a pack of a hundred. I’ll sprinkle some herbs into a few of those, then put the bags of herbs together in a box or some kind of container. When I’m not feeling focused enough to actually look up herb correspondences, HEY LOOK, Past Me already made a “sleep” kit, and all I need to do is open the bags and dump everything together, and there you have it.
  • Sigils. Make sigils ahead of time, something like “I have as much energy as I need”. Draw it out on a paper. Label the paper so you know what the sigil means. Keep sigils together in an envelope or your spell book. When you need one, just take a paper and burn it. Or throw it in water and let the ink run. Or crumple it up as small as you can. Or rip it up into tiny tiny pieces. I find that destruction almost never takes up much energy at all!

Those are just a few things that have helped me, anyway.
