correct one

Decided it was about time I completed one of my own prompts - Day 1459, a clock tower. I’ve bought a drawing monitor off of my friend @thesketcherlass after she got a new one, and I’m also testing out Clip Studio Paint, so that’s exciting.

I plan on doing a review of Clip Studio paint for my Patreon, (which I will be launching the first of April) so I will probably be doing some more doodles and experiments while I get to know the program.

Sadly, you are correct!  This is one of those coincidences that truly is a coincidence (L. Tomlinson registered a domain in 2011 just like H. Styles in 2017) - who knew those happened?!? LOL!

Chara, who are you to say what is right.

*I am not.
*Let me rephrase.
*He deserves to know.
*It is what feels right.
*From my singular, twisted point of view.
*And while I am aware there is bias in my outlook on the world.
*And that not all the decisions I make will be the correct ones.
*As a sentient being in control of my own actions.
*I will do what feels right to me.
*…
*But that’s a little wordy, isn’t it?

I don't want to bother you guys, but do you know if there are any versions of 1.06 and 1.08 that have the subtitles synced all the way through? In every version of these two episodes that I can find, the subtitles are out of sync with the video, in 1.06 from the Halloween party on and in 1.08 in the last scene. My sister wants to watch the show and I want a good version to show her. I don't have the software to make subtitles myself. :(( If not it's okay, we'll just grit through those scenes.

We’re in the same boat as you anon! The subtitle files for those two episodes are out of sync and as of now, no one has corrected them. Sorry about that! However, the hard subbed copies on this Google Drive are in sync. :)

EDIT: Actually you’re in luck! This site has the Subtitle files in sync!

hey, you answered one of my posts about reading/writing chinese, and you mentioned studying radicals. why is that? (my guess would be for mnemonic purposes and maybe using a chinese dictionary?) thank you!

Hi! Radicals (and just common parts of characters in general) are really helpful for learning to read and write Chinese. Chinese characters are usually constructed with a rhyme and reason, with parts that lend meaning and parts that lend pronunciation. Familiarizing yourself with radicals can sometimes help you guess meanings of new characters while reading and can also help you decide which of a set of similar-looking characters is the correct one to choose.

Let’s take a radical as an example. I like the radical 讠(the simplified version of 訁, which comes from the character 言 yán, meaning “speech” or “words”). Here’s a bunch of characters with that radical:
语 yu3 - language
话 hua4 - speech; dialect
说 shuo1 - to say; to speak
诗 shi1 - poem
讲 jiang3 - to talk
谢 xie4 - to thank
课 ke4 - class; lesson
词 ci2 - word
请 qing3 - please; to invite
读 du2 - to read
讽 feng3 - to satirize
谅 liang4 - to show understanding; to excuse
议 yi4 - to comment on; to discuss
谓 wei4 - to say
谈 tan2 - to discuss
This is by no means an exhaustive list, and some are more of a stretch than others, but see how these characters all have something to do with words or speaking? So knowing some radicals helps associate meaning with an otherwise fairly arbitrary character, and can help you guess at new words when you’re in a pinch.

And the more Chinese characters you get familiar with, the more you’ll find that radicals aren’t the only parts they can share. There are many characters that remain the same with only the radical switched out, changing the meaning but keeping the pronunciation similar or even exactly the same. Let’s take, for example, 里 li3:
理 li3 - logic; to pay attention to/to manage
哩 li - (final modal particle)
厘 li2 - one hundredth; centi-
狸 li2 - fox-like animal
鲤 li3 - carp
锂 li3 - lithium
俚 li3 - rustic
娌 li3 - (used in 妯娌 zhou2 li to mean sisters-in-law)
浬 li3 - nautical mile
So you can take 里 and add different radicals to it and still have it be pronounced like “li” (though sometimes with different tones). This gives you a fair chance at guessing pronunciation when reading new words aloud, and it gives you a familiar base to build from when learning new characters - you don’t really need to “learn how” to write it so much as just remember what parts go together. Occasionally you may come across an exception (for example, 埋 mai2, meaning “to bury”, which sounds nothing like “li”), but generally speaking, you can usually get close.

Of course, this kind of familiarity is something that comes with time, so try not to overwhelm yourself with it. I’m still learning myself and did a fair amount of dictionary-checking while writing this response. Take it a few radicals at a time, and also don’t feel pressured to learn every character you can find with a given radical, especially if you’re using an online dictionary or dictionary app - Some of the characters you find there may be obscure or archaic and won’t be of much use to you.

I hope this helps! Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!

anonymous asked:

what are your pronouns?

My correct pronouns are he/him. People often use she/her when referring to me and my blog, that doesn’t bother me at all but I appreciate it must be confusing. Thank you for taking the time to clarify the correct ones though.

my opinion on twenty one pilots 

  1. amelia earhart - first woman to fly across the atlantic ocean solo, i mean if that’s not badass what is 
  2. charles lindbergh - apparently his nicknames were slim, lucky lindy, and the lone eagle i guess that’s cool 
  3. bessie coleman - first black woman and first native american woman to hold a pilot’s license, also badass, a cool gal 
  4. jacqueline cochran - apparently one of the most gifted racing pilots of her generations, that’s rad
  5. bob hoover - it doesn’t say much about him but he’s wearing a cool hat in his photo, i approve
  6. louis bleriot - this dude has a big mustache
  7. buzz aldrin - you know him, you love him, good ol’ buzz
  8. steve fossett - first person to fly non-stop around the world in a balloon, i commend him 
  9. chelsey sullenburger - a true icon of our generation
  10. jeane yeager - the first non-stop, non-refueled flight around the world in the rutan voyager aircraft apparently? that’s sweet
  11. glenn curtiss - apparently he started as a bicycle racer, and was like you know what, let’s try out planes. this dude has ambition and i can respect that 
  12. hanna reitsch - germany’s most famous test pilot and a nazi, not cool
  13. dick rutan - apparently flew the same flight with jeane yeager yet the plane was named after him, rude. don’t like him and his name seems made up
  14. harriet quimby - first woman to gain a pilot’s license in the us and again, has a cool hat. idk what it is but pilot’s sure do like their hats 
  15. antoine de saint-exupéry - a rich french dude, i know nothing else about him
  16. dogulas bader - idk but he’s smoking a pipe in photo tho so obvious he’s going for some kind of look 
  17. wiley post - first pilot to fly around the world, like one day he just decided to do it, i mean good job i guess but i would not do that 
  18. howard hughes - a business man and owner of hughes aircraft company? apparently he had a lot of money?
  19. richard e. byrd - no personal feelings on this guy from the 5 seconds i spend researching the topic 
  20. raymonde de loche - she seems cool i like her
  21. amy johnson - john travolta was before her in google but i’m not putting him on this list, she’s got the typical aviator glasses on in the photo and seems cool. i like her

and thus concludes my opinion on twenty one pilots

I think my favorite part of the YOI fandom are the Victuri non-believers after all.

Victor and Yuuri could get married and they’d still be all like “I don’t know, man, they didn’t seem too convinced when they said their vows, and those rings are completely platonic, you know, that’s something two guys give each other all the time, and they didn’t show their kiss at that altar clearly enough so yeah, guys, they’re just reaffirming their friendship, can’t you tell? They’re married as best friends, alright, this show was just queerbaiting from beginning to end, there’s absolutely nothing gay about two guys promising to spend the rest of their lives with each other, y’all got played.”

@rookie009 omg lena you’re so gay

lena is gonna get an earful when everyone gets back to base

Important messages from “Yuri!!! on Ice” to an athlete

1. You don’t have an expiration date. Yuuri is a “late bloomer”, you can be that too.

2. To succeed in your sport, you don’t have to be born with talent - hard work and dedication will bring you far.

3. Rivalry doesn’t exclude the possibility of a friendship.

4. What works for others might not work for you. You’re an individual and there’s not one correct answer to what will help you improve your athletic performance. Celestino wasn’t the right coach for Yuuri, ballet didn’t work for Otabek.

5. Some days - maybe weeks or months, even - you won’t perform the way you want to and know you can. That’s okay. You’ll figure it out. Everyone falls into a slump sometimes.

6. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you enjoy your sport. It’s supposed to be fun, even though it might seem to be all work and no fun.

7. You don’t have to fight alone . Don’t be afraid to ask for help - it might help you to develop your skills and help you out of a rough patch

my fave examples of the Dice Gods interfering w or contributing 2 the narrative feel free 2 add shit

  • when Keyleth was trying to haggle with Sherri since Vex wasn’t there and rolling a nat1
  • Vax rolling two 1s in a row while trying to stealth out of Keyleth’s room
  • Vex rolling a nat20 on her assistance with Percy’s resurrection that shit was tight af
  • Percy rolling a nat20 on his concentration save for Hex on Ripley (i believe) out of sheer fucking spite
