There is no challenge you cannot meet – and that includes the present one. What is happening now is part of a larger process leading to your own self-realization. Please believe me, and sleep well in the truth of that. Your soul will rejoice again–more than it ever did before.

Weekly Art Challenge #143 (June 28th ~July 5th)

Hello!

Being visual artists it is usually our goal to convey a sight to our viewers and evoke all the senses that are being felt in our work. It can at times be tricky to do this- and even more so when you have a specific non-visual sense you are focusing on. 

This week we will be trying to evoke a favorite sound in our pieces. Think about why this sound is your favorite, or what causes this sound and be sure to include the feeling(s) associated with your chosen sound.

Things to note

-This may be tricky at first because you are trying to have the viewers be able to hear the sound in their head based on just your visual representation alone!

-All visual mediums allowed whether it be a drawing or a picture!:)

-Fanart is welcomed!

[The deadline for this challenge will be July 5th at 6PM PDT/9PM EST]

For more information about the group and it’s submissions, please read the FAQ! If you have a question or concern that you do not see mentioned there, please don’t hesitate to ask me.

Make sure to submit your piece using the submission page, and tag it for the appropriate challenge! If you don’t complete in time for the deadline, still post it to your Tumblr and tag it as ‘weekly art challenges’ & ‘wac challenges’! Have fun!:)

You only have one week to participate in the current challenge. For example if we’re in the second week and you make an edit about the theme of the first week challenge, it won’t count.

Here’s the thing: queer people are not optional. We don’t appear at a certain time or place in life. We’re always here. If you mean to teach kids about the world, you have to teach them about queer people in the same way that you have to teach kids that people have different religions than you, or different hobbies, or different diets. Otherwise, you’re not protecting kids. You’re giving them false information, which is confusing at best, and damaging at worse.
The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.

Get To Know Me Meme Day 3 Final Week: Favourite Brought to Life -  Kuroshitsuji (2014)

                ↳This again was a challenge! I can’t honestly say it is my favorite but it definitely ranks WAY up there. I didn’t want to go down the road of the predictable. I mean everyone loves Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango,and Ouran but I wanted to do something that wasn’t one that everyone loved.  So in the end I chose this film.

You’re going to feel like quitting. You’re going to struggle, you’ll have days where you wonder, “what’s it all for?” You’ll have days when people attempt to break you down, or challenge your intelligence, skills and right to be where you are. You’ll have moments when you question your own abilities, and perhaps your sanity - but you’ll rise. You’ll rise every time, not because you’ve defended yourself, but because you understand this profession is not mastered in one day. You’ll rise because you appreciate each mistake is a learning opportunity. You’ll rise, because even on yours - or someone else’s very worst day, there’s still a human underneath it all, and you chose this profession that prioritizes understanding & empathy. You’ll rise, because the fact that you’re struggling and doubting yourself means you’re invested in, and striving for excellence. You’ll rise, because your strength as a nurse is not determined by one grade, one shift or one job - it’s an ongoing journey of learning, honor, humility and a chance to make even the smallest difference in the lives of your patients.

Get To Know Me Meme Day 1 Favorite Movie Final Week: Highway

          ↳ Picking my favorite film was a challenge. When we discussed doing theme this back in May, I was sure I knew what my favorite film was. However, after discussing this film with my mum and talking about it’s cinematography, storyline, and overall vibe of the film I realized that Highway is the one film. I realized during this discussion that it is the film that I can watch over and over again without tiring of it.
