do i have a problem yet

We're Difficult (ENTJ charming capabilities)
  • (dating, beginning stage, not a relationship yet)
  • Her: I would like you to tell me some normal things, like what you find attractive about me.
  • Me: I suck at words.
  • Her: ...you just had a 20 min debate with that drunk Christian guy about the necessity of having abortion clinics...
  • Me: But that is much easier than saying lovey-dovey crap.
  • Her: Why do I even waste time here.
  • Me: Maybe because you realize your exes might have rocked the lovely name calling and compliments, but look where they are now.
  • Her: I hate you.
  • Me: That's the spirit.

So you always say don't ask for advise here. Go to a vet whose seen your animal. Which got me thinking. Your a practicing veterinarian. Have you ever had a client come across your blog yet. If you did what was their reaction. If not what would you do if it ever did happen. P.s I would love if my vet had an awesome blog like this

I don’t promote it to my own clients, and would prefer to keep my clients and my blog audience separate if I can.

Firstly, I don’t want to be contacted after hours about a medical problem. I did that for nearly three years and let me tell you it weighs heavy on your mental health. I still panic a little when I hear the generic ring of a mobile that matched the after hours phone.

Secondly, I don’t want people playing a guessing game trying to figure out the person or animal I wrote about in any particular anecdote. I don’t want someone accusing me of writing about them in an unflattering way, even if there’s no way of identifying that person or if it was even them I wrote about in the first place.

Thirdly, while the boss was informed when I was employed that I write a blog, he certainly hasn’t kept tabs on it and probably doesn’t realize how much that audience is growing. I don’t know if he’d approve of the fact that I write about him sometimes.

Lastly, I don’t really want to be a celebrity vet. I enjoy being a storyteller and enjoy talking about the human side of veterinary practice, the reasons why you stay in this industry. I don’t really want to be ‘look at me I’m a vet’, but more ‘listen to me I’m a story teller.’

Some of my clients, past and present, do know that I wrote a book though. I was happy to tell them about it, since it wasn’t related to work in any way.

How dyou feel about vegetarians? Its super easy to get access to vegi foods that arent just fruit or veg and personally i get mad when people 'just need bacon'. The way most animals are treated is awful, and farming causes deforestation and all sorts of global problems. Yet because something tastes good (despite healthier and pretty good options of non meat food) everyone suffers Input?

I don’t have a problem with vegetarians or vegetarianism. 

But I do have a problem with a lot of the assertions you make in this ask, anon. People eat meat for many reasons other than it “tastes good” (health, cultural, socio-economic status, etc.). People do not always have healthier non-meat options (google “food deserts” and “access to healthy food”). 

Question why you are blaming a SYSTEMIC problem like deforestation and animal abuse on INDIVIDUAL ACTION as opposed to blaming capitalism, the farming industry, etc. The vast majority of individual citizens have little to no control over systemic problems (like, one person going vegan/vegetarian is not going to stop deforestation).

There is no ethical consumption under capitalism. Most people are just trying to survive. Instead of blaming them for that, perhaps look at dismantling and critiquing the systems that make their survival so difficult in the first place.

Hi. I don't know how you feel about curses, but I'm hoping you could help me? There's this one guy I want to curse, he's made me regret some things he and I did, and he is extremely rude and disgusting, and hurt my friend. What kind of curse should I go about casting on him? Also, what other cursing ingredients are there beside the popular "spicy" ones? Thank you!

I’m personally fine with witches using curses if they deem them necessary and go about them responsibly. One thing to definitely keep in mind if you do perform a curse is to cleanse your work area so that there’s no residual bad energy to harm you in any way. Before I give you some curse ideas though it’s always worth thinking about why you want to curse someone and if there aren’t better means of addressing your problem. If it’s someone you can easily distance yourself from then do that, if you have yet to address them verbally one-on-one then that is always the step to do before cursing, it’s unfair and unethical (I think) to curse someone if you’ve never brought your issues to their attention in the first place and given them a chance to make amends. So bear in mind that mundane action will often get faster results than just flinging a curse at someone. That being said, other than spicy ingredients, I like using rotting and decaying things, rusted things, wounded and broken things. Rotten food, broken trash, rusted useless pieces of metal, these are all good ingredients I think. This one. by oldmotherredcap is a favorite, but anything by her is fabulous. I hope this helps

Is Wepwawet only associated with grey because of the misconception of his color, or is he associated with it anyway? I make minimalistic art of my gods using only black, gold, and the color I associate with them. I'm going to be making one for him and don't want his color based solely on a misconception. If it's not actually a color to associate with him, do you have any recommendations on other colors? My other ones are associated both by me and in general so there hasn't been a problem yet.

Hi Anon,

I think you’ll be safe using grey if you want to. While I haven’t found any convincing evidence that the ancient Egyptians did ever associate him with grey, I think he very much likes grey as a colour. When picking things out for him, I’ve often gone with a grey option. (His shrine has a black and grey tatami mat ‘floor’, I’ve bought him votive sports car toys which are grey, etc.) Also bear in mind that grey isn’t often used in AE art and doesn’t seem to have had any distinct symbolic meaning - in most cases it would probably have been read as black.

Mom I have a problem. I met one guy yesterday and we decided to hand out today. When we ended up at my place he started getting uncomfortably close and I couldn't do anything. How can I tell him that I don't want to do the do yet?

Straight up tell him you don’t want the do.
If he persists, leave.
If he keeps getting physical or tried to stop you from leaving, you have every right to defend yourself in any manner.
Kick him, punch him, bite him, poke his eyes if you need to.
DO NOT let him guilt you, and DO NOT meet in a private or out of sight area.
Keep things public and out in the open so other people can see you.

I love these boneheads, even though I can’t play my game yet.

•If you’re headphones are leaking music, you have to unplug/disconnect and hook up to the speakers.

•Plumeria’s words: “Y'all ain’t ‘bout to ruin y'all ears with loud music, so if we hear it, you gotta let EVERYBODY hear it.”
•This is almost never a problem and sometimes the grunts do it on purpose so everybody has an excuse to dance and be happy together
•Guzma’s more guilty of this than anyone
———
•If a Grunt wakes up and sees that two other grunts are cuddling, they have absolute permission to climb over and cuddle with them.

•It gets cold at night, so who wouldn’t want to cuddle?
•This is the start of the cuddle pile
•Guzma and Plumeria wake up to all the grunts just in one big comfortable pile on the floor
•If either is still tired they just pick a grunt and cuddle up to them, ready to go back to sleep
———
•It’s a right of passage to develop a crush on Guzma and/or Plumeria.

•And get over it, of course
•Or don’t get over it, your choice. Nobody’s stopping you.
•Guzma and Plumeria are fully aware of this and even humor it sometimes, but they would never lead the grunts on in believing that they returned the feelings

“Boss’ pretty hot, huh?”
“Yeah~….”
“Gotcha.”
“WAIT! NONONO-”
“'EY FELLAS! GET THIS BOY HIS BANDANA! HE’S AN OFFICIAL MEMBER NOW!”
———
•If you start singing, everybody starts singing

•A Grunt *quietly to herself*: “Cause you’re hot then you’re cold…”
•The Rest Of The Grunts: “YOU’RE YES THEN YOU’RE NO!”
•Guzma and Plumeria walk in and everybody thinks they’re in trouble, but they just clap once and start singing and dancing
•Music tastes are shared so often, it’s impossible not to know the words to whatever song is being sung
———
A Grunt: “Aw shoot!”
Guzma: “'Ey, watch your fucking language.”
———
•Guzma carries around extra skull beanies while Plums has extra bandanas
———
•Whenever a grunt gets the hair colors wrong, everybody changes

•Boys are pink and girls are blue until it’s time to redye their hair
•Guzma dyes his hair pink and yellow and Plums bleaches hers white when they notice
•It’s all to make them feel better about their mistake and everybody’s just like:

“Yikes, I got the wrong dye! Guess you and me are stuck like this. But it’s no biggie, cause we look hot in pink!”

“Looks like I grabbed your hair dye, Plums. Sorry 'bout that.”

“Woah, did I grab the bleach by accident? Guess I’m stuck with white hair.”

•And just hamming it up to make that person smile. Ain’t nobody sad in the Team Skull family

~TO THE PERSON I WAS AT THE END OF LAST YEAR~
I know you’re anxious about what the coming year will bring - but don’t be. I’m here to tell you that everything turns out okay… and by that I do mean okay - not amazing or anything. Spoiler alert: the person you’re missing doesn’t come back, your life problems don’t magically solve themselves and you don’t end up with the life you always dreamed of by December… but you are okay. In fact, by the end of the year – you’re a little wiser, a little happier and a little stronger than you are right now. You won’t be on top of everything yet, but you will finally recognize that the inner strength you used to have was merely a sleeping dragon that is now stirring inside you, ready to awaken soon.
By the end of the year, you will still be a little hurt and bruised but you will feel a tiny spark of optimism you didn’t think possible… you will see the dawning light on a horizon you didn’t think existed…
So hang in there because by the end of this year you’ll still see your future as a great unknown… but for the first time in a long time…
you won’t find that so terrifying…

5-note patterns

(if you like this, check out my other practice tips here! (link)

Wow, I feel like I’m betraying my nation and leaking a state secret by posting this. You won’t find this anywhere else on the internet. It’s trick passed around in my band pyramid and I have interesting stories about how it reached me.

Basically, when you’ve got sixteenth-note runs that are tripping you up, or you sound uneven and not very fluid while playing them, this trick will solve your problems. So, here’s what you do, step by step:

  1. Break the sixteenth note passage into blocks of 5 and start with the first block, as shown in the 1st measure of this sheet
  2. Play those 5 notes in the rhythm pattern of the 2nd measure. Repeat 10 times– just like that, don’t go on yet.
  3. Move on to the next measure’s pattern. Do that, and just that: 10 times.
  4. Rinse and repeat, until you’ve down all the rhythm patterns on this sheet. 
  5. Voila: you sound 100x better!

This technique is most effective when you combine it with the “up 4, down 2” metronome trick. So, play each rhythm pattern 10x at say, 100bpm. Then play it 10x at 104bpm, then at 102bpm, and then 106bpm, etc.

This should work for all woodwinds, and sometimes for piano. I don’t play brass or strings though, so I’m not sure– but it could!

I keep having a recurring dream of dancing in a forest clearing. With a man whose hair changes with ever step we take. We dance to a dark song, yet I feel comfort within this faceless man’s arms as he guides me over the leaves. Do you know what it means? I know I have never meet this man, but I feel as if I know him all too well. I can’t find him, for his hair is forever changing and his face is never there. I can’t find him for he has no name. I will find him, for who gives me the feeling he does within that dream, I know, is that man.

So my erstwhile friend of too-long-to-count Mr. Feel (aka @thefeelofavideogame ) doesn’t want to be known as a “RWBY Guy”, this makes sense, RWBY is a very frustrating goddamn show, in so many damn ways. I’m doing him a favor of listing a bunch of problems with RWBY that he can just reblog for his followers since he doesn’t wanna deal with that shit.

Now, SOME CONTEXT: I’ve watched all of RWBY Seasons Volumes 1-3, I’ve seen maybe like, two episodes of RWBY Season 4. I know it had been improving but recently took yet -another- nosedive, and have written massive, massive amounts of words on the subject of RWBY’s incompetence, so I’m probably going to regurgitate a lot of points here that I’ve already ranted about to my friends in private to keep the word count from being too apocalyptically long.

I’m also going to be directly comparing RWBY to what it -wants- to be: a shonen-style anime romp, instead of any sort of high literature, just in case people think I’m some pretentious ass and not, y'know, a total nerd myself.

This list is not comprehensive, but is probably a good list of major production/storytelling faults. I’d need to do a whole series on this to talk about all the things wrong with RWBY, but a few major points of discontent, in no particular order:

1. Terrible, Terrible Pacing

Pacing makes or breaks a show for a ton of people, and RWBY’s pacing, for a show, is ridiculously awful. I’m gonna be rolling a lot of my issues into this large point, because RWBY has a problem with both set-up AND follow-through on points it tries to present. It does a lot of things wrong with this, in that it tries to blow past a lot of setup just to get to ‘the good part’, which is the kind of mistake you say fanfiction writers and NaNoWriMo novels make. You have to establish things if you want people to get emotionally invested! You can’t just force these four people together into a team, say 'okay, they’re a team now’, and then not elaborate on how they actually feel about each other at any point! Does anyone know what Team RWBY thinks about each other? Not really, because you get a laundry list of traits, get them referenced once, and then they assume for you to fill in the blanks. It’s sloppy and lazy.

Sloppy and lazy describe a lot of the other plot points RWBY puts forward. The show continually tries to introduce a cool new thing without even beginning to resolve the thing they’d already attempted to put forward. This gets really frustrating in the way they put forward the climaxes of the various seasons, because do you want to know how many times the members of the MAIN TEAM are relevant in a given finale?

0. 0 times. Twice they get pre-empted by a Cool New Thing, and the third time is supposed to be the Time They Lose And Everything Goes Wrong, Oh No, except you don’t CARE because they’ve accomplished NOTHING! They’re a vehicle for action scenes, nothing more. It’s not even a problem of runtime, because the Volume 4 episodes are now the length of your usual anime episode! They just don’t know how to effectively use their time.

Part of the problem with this, is…

2. Massive, massive cast bloat

Mr. Feel didn’t get far enough in for this to matter, but RWBY has a -huge- issue with introducing new characters for the sake of having new characters. To wit You have basically two teams full of main characters, which is four characters apiece. The cast does eventually slim down, only to add about three more characters for each one they trim off the list. And, as of this writing the cast is all over the fictional world, splitting the focus indefinitely to a point where the narrative is impossible to follow. A bunch of characters are superfluous, such as Neptune, -possibly- Sun, and basically Everyone They Introduce during the Tournament Arc. It gets to the point where they introduce new characters and can’t develop the ones they already have, with some… notable exceptions. Nearly all the main characters are about as flat as cardboard when it comes to personality, with viewers expected to fill in the blanks, only to never get any reward for inferring these character traits, because, again, RoosterTeeth is terrible at follow-through on their series.

But I’ve been talking like the foundations aren’t rotten, when they are, due to the fact that-

3. They ignore the basic ideas around what makes shonen fighting good

Okay, so, an unrelated friend once made this metaphor about how Shonen Fights should work, and I’ve been using it ever since, it’s how I tackle so many fights, and why I tend to dislike a lot of the fighting around RWBY.

The best Shonen fights are like puzzles. What I mean by that is that, at any given point, you know what your heroes have access to, and how each part works, and the excitement comes from not only learning what tools the heroes’ opponents have at their disposal, but also figuring out how exactly the heroes’ tools will come into play. Now, you may be thinking “Shonen break the rules with sudden power-ups all the time”, and I posit that, no, they really don’t. So long as something is alluded to being in the Hero’s toolbox, they can use it, even if this means it’s, in narrative context, a 'new’ power. The most iconic example I can think of, of that rule playing out, is Goku going Super Saiyan on Namek. It’s alluded to a bunch of times that the only thing Freiza is scared shitless of is a Super Saiyan. Vegeta tells Goku he doesn’t stand a chance unless he’s a Super Saiyan. From that point on, the idea of 'becoming a Super Saiyan’ is a tool that’s added to Goku’s 'toolbox’, that he eventually uses against Freiza.

RWBY doesn’t play by these rules. Everyone has a boatload of powers at their disposal - Aura, Dust, Semblances, and trick weapons - but none of them feel really well explained or well-distinguished. Dust can be combined in a bunch of different ways! Okay, how? Why do crystals and powdered dust both exist? What causes Semblances to exist or not? How -exactly- does Aura even -work-? Not only that, but then they introduce new powers, like Ruby’s 'Silver Eyes’, and then refuse to elaborate on them, treating them as exercises for the viewer.

Not only that, but the fights just. Don’t feel 'dynamic’, there doesn’t ever feel like there’s a change or a moment where things shake up. To make a videogame-based example, a lot of bosses tend to have 'Phases’ in it. These phases are well-defined, because they involve changing the way the players and the boss have to move. RWBY doesn’t do that. All the interesting different stuff is just different 'strings’ of combos, like in fighting games, which feel downright uninspired when you have to many different ways you can approach fights. Nope, just a varied combo string.

But all that could probably be forgiven if they just…

4. STOP PANDERING FOR GOD’S SAKE

Look, I get it. Everyone hates pandering unless they’re the one being pandered to. That’s how it’s always been, that’s how it’s likely always going to be. But there’s a level of -advanced- pandering that goes on in RWBY that is absolutely cringe-worthy on every level.

There’s throwaway characters based off of company in-jokes, the 'combat’ technique names are named after fandom’s ship names, the inclusion of a character just so a prominent member of their staff could voice a character whose existence is downright superfluous. Making a character more important than they seemed because fan reaction was popular. It goes as far as like.

Okay. I would be perhaps be the last person to talk about queerbaiting, as a straight white dude, and given certain fandoms’ overuse of the term, it’s been relatively diluted recently, but RWBY’s actions of pandering can be straight up queerbaiting, because, as it turns out, people wanted a narrative focused on girl heroes, and what they got was every plot beat being soaked up by dudes as each of the main team is effectively damselled in their own way. And yet they still try to spin it as the 'girls’ story’. It’s honestly kind of disgusting, and a topic for another post, but the real thing that probably makes me the most mad is…

5. Nobody at Rooster Teeth knows what they’re doing with the show, and never have

Don’t get me wrong. Monty Oum is an inspiration to me as someone who primarily works in creative space, trying to make creative things. Monty Oum was a creative force that will be sorely missed in this world. But Monty made one singular, huge fuckup which has kneecapped RWBY even worse than the show could ever do to itself.

There’s no story bible.

For those of you who don’t understand what that is, it’s exactly what it says it is. If you don’t know what something does, you refer to the story bible. If you don’t understand what the plot’s beats are supposed to be, you refer to the story bible. Over, and over, and over. Having a singular document to refer to is vital in a whole bunch of different areas. Game Design Docs, Story Bibles, Production Diaries/Bibles, they’re all more or less the same concept over different areas.

From what we know of the behind the scenes, there was a lot of stuff Monty had in mind that he just. Didn’t tell -anyone- else working on the show. He couldn’t have known he would have died so young, but that’s exactly why bibles exist. They’re there as contingencies, you make them so that, in case you aren’t there to work on something that’s so completely -you-, people can follow what you had in mind. So many things got dropped, shifted, moved around with Monty’s death that the show spent all of Volume 3 trying to recuperate, while gradually trying to salvage the show, but it’s clear they didn’t know what to do with a lot of pieces, and are just hoping that people are forgetting about them.

This is, quite honestly, inexcusable even for a 'semi-professional’ work. You can’t keep ideas to yourself. You have to share them, workshop them, write them -down-. That’s the only way anyone’s ever going to know what you’re going with, and a lack of a story bible is as much at fault for why RWBY is so frustrating.

I wanted to like the show, I really, truly, honestly did, but it’s made me so mad at every turn that I can’t even enjoy when it -tries- to improve, because I know it’ll continue to disappoint.

Don’t watch RWBY.

A/N: Well well well, sometimes I’m having my own ideas, for imagines. SHOCKER!


“Have anyone seen Y/N today?” your English teacher looked out among her other students and frowned when she didn’t see you in your regular seat, diagonally in front of Theo. “I thought I saw her this morning.” she added.

“She’s taking care of herself.” Theo smirked for himself when the teacher gave him a glance. “Excuse me?” she looked confusingly down at Theo, who was still smirking, but raised his eyebrows before answering and coughed to hide a scoff.

What she says: I’m fine.

What she means: What the fuck languages is everyone speaking in Yuri on Ice!!?!?! Everyone is from different parts of the world, yet they don’t seem to have any problems communicating with each other!! Do they all just somehow happen to know and be fluent in japanese?? Are they actually speaking a common-ground language like English? Do figure skaters have to learn a shitton of languages before they can compete?? Why do the russians Viktor & Yurio speak perfect Japanese!? Is JJ supposed to be French-Canadian or English-Canadian!?! Did Chris the swede learn russian because of Viktor?? Did Yuri learn russian because of Viktor?? Do they all just carry around little foreign dictionaries with them! ? ? ? I needd these questions answered, dammittt!!!!!!

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

“This trans woman stood up to her haters and is a true inspiration how all trans people should act in the face of hate!” 

I’ve recently seen headlines along those lines and i believe that the ones who write those consider themselves supportive of lgbt+ people, they certainly mean no harm. 

And yet, those statements left a bad taste in my mouth. 

Yes, people standing up to haters are cool. If you’re a lgbt+ person who stands up to hate, you’re cool! It takes bravery and strength as it can be very dangerous to do so - and that’s one of the problems i see in these statements.

All trans people should? Some of them would get killed. Or raped. Or kicked out of home. Or fired. That’s the sad reality many lgbt+ people (and statistically trans women in particular!) face. Some of us have to stay silent to stay safe. 

And is that our fault? Are we the bad ones for not acting how we should in the face of hate? Are we the bad ones for not standing up? Of course not. 

The bad ones in this situation are the haters. They are the ones who do wrong. They are the ones who need to change - not the lgbt+ people who have to face their hate. 

You may call me oversensitive but this headline, despite probably meaning well, displays a mindset in which lgbt+ people are to blame for lgbt+ phobia and not the lgbt+-phobic people. And that mindset washes lgbt+-phobes clean from guilt, lifts the pressure to change off them and places it on the victims of their hate instead. 

Don’t ever believe you deserve hateful attacks because you don’t “stand up”. The ones who need to change are the ones who attack you. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom
