even if you aren't my patient

jellicalcat  asked:

I know you've gotten this one before, but it's that time of year again. My long-haired cat inevitably gets matts every spring - despite daily brushing. I usually catch them small (fingernail sized) and pick them apart with my fingers, but I also know many people (and their pets) aren't that patient. Do you have any seasonal words of wisdom for spring shed matts?

My main wisdom is what you’re already doing - brush frequently, brush early. Maybe even more than once a day on the spots where the animals tend to get matts. Beyond that, if you’re still having problems, talk to a groomer about what they can do to help with the shedding process or the trouble spots. Being proactive about anything you do is the biggest part though because it’s way harder on the animal to get rid of them once they have them. 

BMBLB
  • Well damn, I'm offline for about three hours and somehow shit hit the fan again. (For new members of the FNDM this happens almost every hiatus.)
  • I don't really know how to say this...
  • I scrolled through the tag for about 3-4 minutes and saw nothing but hate for the CRWBY and the show in general for "queer baiting".
  • Guys, this show has 3 maybe 4 canon romances. Taiyang x Raven, Taiyang x Summer, Jaune x Pyrrha, and possibly (I mean it's hard to say it's not canon at this point, but it's only been very heavily hinted at, not super romancey) Ren x Nora. And all these romances are either completely off screen or very minor plots in the overall story. Romance is clearly in the backseat of this show.
  • I'm sure several of you who have read my song analysis are wondering "But Nerdz aren't you mad too, they basically made BMBLB not about the bees."
  • No I'm not mad, think back to previous soundtracks, there have been several songs that were meant for something other than what the FNDM thought it was for (ex. All of Our Days, Cold). Also, why would they want a song confirming the bees in a volume where they had no interaction with one another?
  • We've been told there will be LGBT characters and to be patient, this song, even though as much as I want it to be about the bees, doesn't mean that it is.
  • Please keep in mind guys that the characters all have different goals, specifically Yang and Blake who are focusing more on their families than themselves.
  • And about the whole screening process for the album, the CRWBY is already busy working on volume 5, making sure it's as perfect as it can be for us. We don't know what the process for releasing the soundtrack is, or how much time the have during these hiatuses to do such things. We all know about the stories of CRWBY working 24/7 to get the show out to us, and that's just the show, not the merch like the soundtrack or shirts, or anything else.
  • Their job is to work on the show, not the soundtrack or anything else RWBY related.
  • And you know what, what if Jeff didn't know how the FNDM would react to BMBLB? Maybe he just thought, "oh this is a neat song the FNDM will love!" Maybe he should have given Miles and Kerry a heads up about it, but we have no idea what goes on behind the scenes.
  • Please keep that in mind guys, we all just see the what they want us to see, and nothing more.
  • You can be mad about this.
  • You can curse the CRWBY all you want.
  • But at the end of the day they're trying to give us a show we love.
  • I myself am a bumbleby shipper, but I'm not letting this ruin my love for the show. It will take time for Blake and Yang to reunite, and fix their relationship. This song which we all assumed was about bumbleby could be something entirely different.
  • But we won't know that until later.
  • So please please please guys, calm down. Chances are we'll hear more about it at RTX with how massive this got. But keep in mind we may or may not get answers.
  • RWBY has been planned out for multiple seasons, and we finished 'season 1' with volume 3. So it will take time for us to even get close to possible romances with the girls, something we've been told countless times.
  • I'm sorry if my rambling doesn't make much sense. So I'll end it here.

anonymous asked:

How can I get my heterosexual friends to understand that just because my best friend and I are both gay girls does not mean that we are in a relationship? Is it even possible? I'm sick of telling them that we aren't together and having the question brought up again a few days later....

take the high road and patiently explain to them that you aren’t dating. or, the next time you meet up, ask every girl and guy sitting next to each other if they’re dating and when they say “no wtf” respond with “lmao wait what? I thought you were straight!”

Hey all, I’m struggling a bit with money right now. ;o; 

If you are interested, have any questions, or want more examples, feel free to send me an ask, or email me at stephanietatoiu@gmail.com. I won’t draw NSFW or gore. For the most part I will accept the commission unless it’s something I flat out am uncomfortable drawing. You can also check out my art tag here

To be clear, 5$ backgrounds are some form of environment behind the characters (examples are the Science Bros and Fluttershy drawings). A background with a plain color is included in the “One colored character” commission, unless you want it transparent. Backgrounds do not come with sketch or lineart commissions.

I’m doing these in my free time, meaning whenever I’m not doing school work, so please be patient if they take a bit. It won’t be an insanely long wait period though, because I do need to earn money as soon as I can. After a potential livestream tomorrow, as well as finishing up a current drawing, these are all I’ll be doing. If by some miracle I get more than 5 commissions, I’ll notify others interested when a slot has opened up. I don’t think I can handle more than 5 at once. ;; Thank you!!

Should I even be a follower if you aren't going to answer any of my questions?

That’s up to you. We’re getting hundreds and hundreds of questions and we unfortunately can’t answer all of them! We’re just humans, please be patient and don’t lose your temper over little things. We’re trying!

anonymous asked:

I'm a born muslim in alhumdulila a Muslim family (however feel like revert) I adopted the hijab during Ramadan and alhumdulilah I will never look back. The thing is, my family. Allah swt has truly blessed me and I love my family dearly, But they aren't religious. Not that they have to be. But it's difficult when both parents drink and other things which go on to continue. I'm just not sure what I should do. Small changes are happening but they think I think I'm better than them which isn't true

You are in difficulty, and you are going to face even more difficulties, but you have to remember something: God placed you with your family for a reason. Who else is going to be able to change them? Me? No, you.

You have to be patient, and you have to take the long-term view. As young people we expect people to accept what we say after we say it.

When Muslims debate a Christian about God and what not, they make great arguments, and then they look at their Christian friend and wait, as if now that they won the debate the Christian has to go: “Oh shucks, I lost, I guess I have to be Muslim now.”

No, that’s not how it works. And that’s not how it’s going to work with your parents.

You’re going to have to be patient and guide them, they’re not going to listen, they’re going to give you a tough time, but these are all tests of your Islam.

If you pray all day, and read Qur’an, and then you snap or yell at your mother, all your Islam is for nothing.

I’m not alone in saying this, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan talks about this in this talk he gave, start it the 20 minute mark [you should watch it all, it’s great and applies to your situation really well, actually] but he talks about this issue, in detail.

Look at The Qur’an:

”’[Revere thy parents;] yet should they endeavour to make thee ascribe divinity, side by side with Me, to something which thy mind cannot accept [as divine], obey them not; but [even then] bear them company in this world’s life with kindness, and follow the path of those who turn towards Me. In the end, unto Me you all must return; and thereupon I shall make you [truly] understand all that you were doing [in life].’” [31:15]

The Qur’an is saying even if your parents are calling you to SHIRK you should respect them. You need to treat them properly, even if they are calling you to such a horrible act. Respect them still!

Why?

Because the only way you will be able to show them the light of Islam is if you become better because of your Islam.

I really think you should click on that video with Ustadh Nouman, it will help you a lot, insha Allah, but when you are dealing with this trial, remember that you have to show your Islam to others, not just for yourself.

Finally, remember:

The best Dawah is your manners, and the best Naseeha is your example.
