I often receive messages on how to improve your french, but tbh, like any language, you just have to keep on hearing it, reading it, trying to understand it.
For example I began learning english at school but I was soooo bad. How school made me learn it made me almost hate the language. But what made me want to learn it was the fact that some mangas I wanted to read and some games I wanted to play were in english, so I started to look for english videos on youtube.
I found videos of Pewdiepie and Smosh with french subtitles, and that’s how I began. (years agooo) I found myself becoming fond of the sound of it, as well as the different cultures.
I kept watching series with french subtitles, playing video games in english but with french subs, etc.
Now I can watch english stuff without subtitles at all (if it’s a complicated movie I take english subs), play games entirely in english and stuff. It’s great ! (I still make grammar mistakes tho heh don’t misunderstand XD)
Unfortunately I don’t really recommend reading fanfictions if you begin learning another language, because often the writers use seldom/complicated words so that’s quite hard, having to go to google translate every 2 seconds haha (I still have some hard time reading some fanfics)
so yeh here are some advice. This is my personal opinion please don’t hate meee
(I really recommend learning more languages, it broadens your mind. Really. Like, I have thoughts I would have never had if I didn’t learn english. Idk how to explain that’s weird. Also I think in english and sometimes forget my french. weird weird!)
(also being on tumblr helped my english a lot hehe)
(OOH I’M SORRY XD Okay so I’ve talked about Worldview here and there, but essentially it’s an original story that I’ve had in my head for awhile, and it will be my main comic when MCQ is over. ZigZag (a non parasite ZigZag) is going to be a prominent character in Worldview, so to help me get some ideas for the characters this askblog is going to be moving from JUST ZigZag to a cast of my original characters who will all be possible cast choices for Worldview. Hope that helps!!)
So as it stands right now my mother has basically given me till the end of March to get out (she has to by NY law im pretty sure since this is technically my residence and its an “eviction”) I havent had much luck finding apartments as most require a good credit score (I have “no” credit because I have never had a loan or credit card), I have no current Source of income since there is no jobs available here and I wouldnt want to get a job only to leave it in a few weeks, on top of that I have no rental history and so most landlords dont want first time renters even if they pass the background check. So i’m still feverishly searching but my price range for an apartment is pretty narrow ($500-$650) a month because thats just the best I can manage. I have struck out on 10 places so far and its looking bleak but I am still trying. The only other major concern is that my vehicle needs its front U-Joints replaced (a $300+ repair), they are a critical part on the front axle and make driving it at all risky and they have to be repaired before I can take any long trip. I’m doing as much as I can and I appreciate all the support and just ask that people bear with me as I may experience lots of ups and down (especially since im still waiting on medicine to treat my bipolar depression). I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for me and I wont forget it. Love you all <3

Prompt: Life hasn’t always been easy for Sirius, but you always thought he knew how to handle it. After all, he’s always so upbeat and energetic all the time. How do you deal with finding out that he isn’t always smiling?
A/N: Panic attacks suck and it’s not an inconvenience to anyone if you have one. Remember to breathe and I hope you guys all have a good day.

Thanks for understanding. I decided to try writing something a bit angsty, so tell me if I’m any good at it please. I’m experimenting with new styles of writing, so please bear with me if the usual nice reader-insert fluff isn’t as prevalent as it used to be.

I am not selling my art anywhere except society6 (currently) && I have not given anyone permission to sell/reproduce/distribute my art.
So basically aside from the few (like, 6 pcs lol – and that’s just because people wanted me to put them up for sale) prints up on my society6, I make no money off of my art as I only make them purely for my (and the fandom’s) enjoyment.
If you see anyone selling my art, please do not buy from them as they most likely stole it from me and are unfairly making money off of it. Also I would appreciate it if you report them to the proper personnel (if it is at a con or something) or tell me (if you saw it online).
IDK what to feel about this because I’ve been getting a lot of reports about this happening lately so aaaah ;;; I don’t want to upload smaller res art because I want people to be able to look at them properly so I think I should just make the watermarks more visible? I don’t knowww hahaha omg this is all new to me
TalesFromYourServer: Had my first "Money To Throw Away" customer on Sunday night.
Posting this on mobile, so please excuse the formatting and length.
I work in fine dining in a not-so-fine area, so I’m used to seeing tip percentages as low as 0%(more often than should be received considering the experience our clientele get), to 30%. On Sunday I went in at 1pm and worked straight through as the closer despite there being 3 other server start times after me.
I was steady all day well into the evening. It was looking like one of those nights where I bust my hump only to barely scrape by with less than $250. I ended up getting a few great tipping regulars in my last round.
Then my manager asks me if I can handle a 7 alonsode my 3 deuces, 8, top, and 5 top. I told her I can only get to them after I serve my 8, and I thought she would give them to someone else. She didn’t, instead setting them up in the section of the server next to mine that just got cut 15 mins ago. They are sat within 10 minutes.
By this time I’m already caught up and have closed out all my other tables, and jist had this 7 top and a deuce that would be sat within 5 minutes of getting the 7. I greet them and begin to take drink orders when the head of the party hands me a $20 along with “My brotha!”.
I thought, “Okay, cool!” and went along to get them another round as some of them had drinks from the bar. I return and he hands me yet another $20 and says the same thing. They then ask mey reccomendations on the menu as they have never been, but are huge steak lovers from Chicago, and don’t like small steaks. Easy. After telling them about our tomahawk, prime rib, and bone in ribeyes, I also recommend seabass for the ladies who wanted to try our fish. As I’m leaving, the man hands me another $20 and another , “My brotha!”.
They ordered 5 appetizers, 2 of which were my strong recommendation and I had my manager deliver them as I was attending to the young couple on their first anniversary 2 tables down from the 7. These were my two only tables at this point. When we see eachother in the service area, she tells me he gave her $20. I told her about my $60 so far. To cut the story short since it’s already a mouthful, the man continued to hand my manager and myself $20 upon visits to deliver refills, drinks, the food, and check-backs until I had already accumulated $100 and she $60.
Here’s the cool part; he came up to the front to ask if he can pay the young couple’s bill because he felt that his table was being loud and obnoxious. They were, but it was all in good fun. He paid their $71 tab and tipped $22 on top of it. They were informed by my manager and thanked the man profusely, and asked me at the bar if they could buy him a drink. I delivered the drink along with a note they wrote and the man became extra happy.
Come time to close out, the 7 had racked up a bill of $542. I didn’t expect there to be a tip as the man had already given $160 cash to my manager and I(Maybe he thought she was my assistant lol). As they walk out, he approaches me in the threshold for the dining room and the service area shakes crushes my hand and gives me a big bear hug thanking me for giving him the best experience he’s had in a long time. I felt the crispy crumpleness of yet another bill in my hand; another $20! Go to bus the table to lend a hand to my lone closing busser, check the book, and saw that he also left $100 on his credit card.
It was an incredible experience. Now, do the math. $542 bill + $71 bill + $122 in cc tips + $180 cash tips. This man spent $915 in our dining room. I don’t even know how much he spent with my bartender. I made $560 before tipout that night.
TL;DR: Man brings in party of 7, gives money out like candy, makes my night unforgettable.
“Now let’s see, it was this book right”? Iris murmurs, pulling a particular book from her shelf.
(It begins! Please bear with me, this is sort of an experiment on my part. ^^’
Also, my birthday is coming up the 14th :D So I will be gone visiting family, which will hopefully go well. My grandfather is not so well anymore, I don’t know how much longer we will have left with him)
