Being on a diet for a week has taught me a few things,
1. You really don’t need that much food
2. Vegetarian food isn’t that bad and is actually tasty
3. You feel alot better after meals
4. It can be a little painful but it’s gonna be worth it
6. Having cold showers has made it easier to talk to my friends(helping me get rid of anxiety and depression)
8. You get motivated and feel less lazy
9. Sleeping gets alot more easier as does waking up early
10. It’s easier if you’re doing it because you love yourself and want to improve, rather than doing it because you hate yourself and want to change.
Stardew Valley Art Dump Part 1!!!!! After cleaning up my art folder I realized I had so much SV art I never posted so here are a few!!! I kinda wanna finish a few of them ;o; The pics have their own captions for what I was thinking when I was drawing them! Please excuse me if I accidently repost any drawings without knowing :8
why do you like to pretend like you are having an adventure? Go have one yourself!
...yes well just let me become a dark elf nightblade and fight for the good of the bigger purpose instead of being a slave to soul crushing capitalism keeping us as unpaid laborers, our only reward to remain alive in this frightening world, yet we're so blinded we cannot see it even if it is in front of us
Try to do/encourage normal activities such as excersize, cooking, and minor outings. Be careful you don’t force them to do anything
Let the sufferer hold the reigns. If they wanna go get ice cream, go with them. If they just wanna curl up on the couch, be there with them.
Manage your stress. The more loose and calm you are the easier it will be for your friend to relax and calm down
Be patient with them
More or less, just be gentle and calm with them. Give a little grace and try your best to be a safe and welcome environment for them. You are not responsible for “fixing” them. But if you really want to be helpful and educated on ptsd this is how you help~
guys, brooklyn nine nine is in serious danger right now- its literally on the verge of being cancelled. But it SHOULDN’T be
This show is literally one of a kind, a gem to everyone, it’s not an average teen drama with shitty love triangles and a glum plotline, but its also not just a dumb police show.
The Ninety ninth precinct is proudly led by an openly gay black cop named Raymond Holt, throughout the entire series he teaches everyone about stereotypes and his struggles of “living as he does, in a world like he does” he expertly gives his own answers per how he grew up and lived like this, battled against people, and beating the odds, became the first gay high ranked cop, but this isn’t just in not just a “tv like world” but it sets a pretty damn good example for the real one too
Then you have Jake Peralta, a lovable, funny, adorable and smart detective/genius. Along the way, Jake and Amy couple up and get together *fangirl scream* but does he destroy his friendship with his two best other female friends? NO, nothing is different between them just because he has a girlfriend, this diminishes yet another stereotype that guys cannot be friends with girls when in a relationship
God then there’s Amy santiago, a neat freak(ish) A proud Latina and strong woman overall. Amy sets as an example for any young girl out there inspired to be something “known as a men’s job” Not only does amy define anyones belief that cops are “kool male doods” but she becomes captain, a fucking captain- of her own precinct one day, putting everyone else to shame. She also teaches us that any good work pays off in the end, and that if you aspire to be something, and work towards it. You can DO IT
Rosa Diaz my friends is an amazing lady, (ALSO A PROUD AND BEAUTIFUL LATINA) she breaks every stereotypical gender issued role any asshats on the CW can think up. She’s strong, smart, fearless, and a motor-riding motherfucking badass. Rosa is also a role-model independent woman, she doesn’t need a fucking man to help her- shes got herself, Rosa teaches us that we only need us, we don’t need leverage or a partner to help. We’re strong enough on our own
Charles Boyle is the type of guy you think is adorably squishy. But there’s more layers to him, Boyle has been through heaps, but the fact is, he hides it under all his bubbliness, and love of food may I add. He’s always been there for people when they’re down in the dumps, and uses his own past and experience to help them back up again. He’s like that one passionate best friend + a lover of food + a homely father. Around the end of season 4 we see Boyle’s son. Through this Boyle grows mature, but stays sassy never-the-less, which is why just about everyone loves him to death
Gina Linetti, where the fuck do I start with her. FIRST, her amazing and often unnoticed character development. Gina goes from not giving a shit about anyone to a sort of caring human being. That’s basically an upgrade for her, like HUGE. Gina is often there as extra comic relief and one liners, but honestly, she’s FOX’s character gold mine. Her wittiness, her talents, and her unexpected craftiness of the sorts. Especially when it comes to halloween, Giving away a character like her would just turn the world back a notch, mkay I can’t express anymore
Terry Jeffords loves yogurt is a ‘defining all odds’ character at its purest. He tells of his story throughout B99, one of how he used to be addicted to food, and how he was extremely overweight. But then he started to fight it, he worked on his self esteem, and put in heaps of excersize. A few months later? HES FIT AS A FUCKING FIDDLE AND A PERSON TO LOOK UP TO IF YOUR FIGHTING OBESITY Bam smack! It’s two in one, Terry is the perfect model if you had one to look up to when trying to become a healthier person physically. Throughout the seasons Terry goes through relapses and laziness, as anyone would. Eventually he overcomes it, and its all thanks to his heart of gold and even more heart of golder frens
Scully and hitchcock, may seem to provide nothing, are they just backup characters? NO, because everyone is important. Thats the exact lesson they teach us every episode of the show. The minute they get left out, they fight for their rights, even though they might seem a little different. Why did I choose to write them in the same paragraph you ask? BECAUSE THEY’RE CONNECTED AT THE HIP. You’ll never see a hitchcock w/o a scully and a scully w/o a hitchcock. They are truly a great fictional example of best friends who have been through thick and thin together
Also not to mention every episode is different, there isn’t really much of a repeated storyline. Every episode tackles a new issue straight up from the real world, its like a comedic slap in the face from reality, that crime DOES exist and not all of it is done James Bond style. Brooklyn nine nine is definitely FOX’s best tv show currently. May I add probably one of the best on air, well, currently. But if we don’t help get the ratings up, this show is going down, and with it all the beautiful representatives we have for gay/obese/black/depression withered people out there. If this show is dare cancelled, all the others might as well be because without b99 the world is going to shit.
I’m sorry for this long thing, but I want this to be heard, even for the people who don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about just please, help not just out show
-Lance has always has something of a crush on the man. His family teased him relentlessly about it.
-It wasn’t until much later, long after the team came together to become the Paladins of Voltron, that that crush grew to love.
-Like it slapped Lance in the face once day, just Lance watching Shiro talking with some Alien and brushing a hand over his floof and he think, “Wow I love him so much,” and then he promptly chokes because tHAT’S NEW??
-Shiro grew to love Lance slowly.
-At first he didn’t think much of Lance besides him being a fellow teammate that is great at getting the team to unwind. But then Lance was able to get SHIRO to unwind.
-Got him to laugh, got him to stop acting like a serious adult all the time, got him to interact with his team as more than just a leader.
-And Shiro was baffled and so, so grateful that Lance was able to do that.
-He fell in love with Lance’s smile first.
-Not the wide smug smirk, or the over-the-top-mega-watt that he tended to shine at people he flirted with, but the one that made Lane’s eyes go wide and his lips parted just enough to show the tips of his teeth. The smile Lance had when someone was just…nice to him.
-Lance tried reeeeally hard to hide his new-found love at first because crippling insecurities abund! :D Everyone knew in less than a week.
-But not Shiro, because alshska hey turns out he has crippling insecurities as well? :D
-When Allura discovered that they were pining over each other MUTUALLY she started pairing them up on missions together.
-Keith was not amused, but resigned because if he had to listen to Shiro rant about his “unrequited” pining one more time he was going to take Shirt’s bayard and stab him with it.
-Turns out that having a sniper cover the back of their best hand-to-hand fighter while on a mission was the best thing ever. Success rates shot through the roof.
-When Shiro memed back at Lance one day during training it caused a horrible catalyst of tragedy - Lance was so shocked that he was hit, causing him to fall through the floor, Keith was AGHAST and betrayed, Pidge cackled so much that she was hit next, and Hunk couldn’t decide between joining in on the laughter or consoling Keith. Needless to say that training excersize was a bust.
-From that day on though Shiro threw out memes at Lance, always withal straight face, and it never failed to make him laugh.
-They started sleeping in the same bed before getting together due to Shiro’s nightmares.
-It was only supposed to be for one night, but the next night Shiro asked him to stay and. Welp.
-Turns out that when Shiro can get a good night’s sleep he’s always the last one up. Lance thinks it’s adorable and will occassionally bring him breakfast in bed.
-Shiro is also the blanket hog.
-When they finally get together Coran tells them that he’d be happy to officiate their union.
-Hunk offers to be flower girl.
-Pidge: “Lance, if I am not your best man I will make your life suffering.”
-Keith: *long-suffering* “Please don’t make me plan a bachelor’s party. Please.”
-Allura is just so excited, she wants to design the entire wedding.
-Shiro and Lance: “Uh…guys we literally just confessed to each other yesterday, calm down.”
-(Lance to Hunk: “But yeah if we eventually get married you can totally be or flower girl.”)
-Keith is actually very happy for the both of them, he just. Can’t deal with their displays of affection.
-(When Shiro and Lance eventually got married, Keith cried the hardest.)
