hi edye! just a small question, i saw a studyblr quote post thing today and it was "i dont stop when i'm tired, i stop when i'm done". i'm just wondering if you would consider this a good way to be or do you disagree and if you have any advice i'd be grateful, thanks x
This is a great question! Okay *takes deep breath* the short answer is by and large, NO, I think it’s actually a really unhealthy mentality and it’s one of the things that’s most distressing to me about students’ mentalities today.
Let’s discuss the argument FOR this being a healthy mentality. If you are a student who struggles with procrastination, and you define “tired” as “lazy/not wanting to deal/wanting to procrastinate” then yes, sometimes it’s important to push past the part of you that’s “tired” and finish the job. And inevitably, we are ALL going to have to pull an all-nighter. For example, once I hit finals week, I was up til 3 am for three nights in a row (0/10 would recommend! I made poor choices), finishing my stats project. In that case, yes, I had to stop when I was done and not when I was tired or else I would have completely screwed myself over even more.
Now let’s discuss my primary argument AGAINST this being a healthy mentality. I went on a rant to my dad about this and I was like, “oh, so don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done, and having a mental breakdown and depressed and sleep deprived and experiencing panic attacks and developing low self esteem and judging yourself by your grades and unhealthy?”
THIS IS WHY so many students hit high school and fall to pieces. Because they feel that they MUST continually push themselves past “tiredness” (aka your body and mind TELLING you that you need a break so you can function) just because they can’t stop until they’re done.
Let me make some points:
1. If you are struggling with a class and this is the only way you can achieve work, you gotta talk to the teacher or a counselor about more efficient study skills or consider switching to another class. You should not be having to push yourself to exhaustion over one course.
2. If anything, we underestimate our body’s communication signals, particularly under stress. So if you realize you’re tired, YOU ARE TIRED. You are mentally burned out, so you aren’t even going to be able to produce your best work, and you are PHYSICALLY burned out too. You’ll get sick more easily, you’ll feel like shit, and it’ll be a total mess.
3. If you need something done, it’s MUCH healthier to LISTEN to your body and take a nap or go to bed early, and wake up early to finish what needs to be finished.
4. PRIORITIZE. My friend wrote down the percentage grade breakdown for each class, and hung it above his desk, so whenever he was running short on time or sleep, he could prioritize and invest the most energy into work that was worth a higher percentage of his grade. Triage, my friends. If you must compromise, then do what’s the most important, and go to sleep.
This mentality creates students who are stressed out, constantly pressuring themselves, always feeling two steps behind, and frankly reaching a point of abusing their own minds and bodies.
90% of the time, STOP when you are tired. Be GOOD to yourself. You wouldn’t stand behind a friend who’s falling asleep or crying over homework, cracking a whip and chanting “don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done!!!!” SO FOR GOD’S SAKE DON’T DO THAT TO YOURSELF.
You are nothing without your mental and physical health. NOTHING. If you jeopardize your health because you’re trying to follow some stupid mentality to be a Good Student and Get Work Done, it’s eventually going to catch up to you.
If you find this quote inspiring and by following this “rule” you end up working harder, producing better work, and feeling BETTER about yourself and your health, great. But if this quote makes you feel like when you’re wavering on hour three of studying, when you’ve gotten 5 hours of sleep and you’re sick, when you don’t have the energy to leave the house, when you think you’re worthless because you got a B, you should STILL KEEP GOING, then that is frankly horrible.
I do not believe that this is good advice. I think everything should be in moderation, and that the study skills that should be advocated are “I don’t stop when I’m DISCOURAGED, I stop when I’m pleased with my work / I’ve finished / I’m successful / I’m proud or confident” where it focuses on emotion and self efficacy. Essentially swapping out health and achievement like that is destructive, inappropriate, and potentially detrimental to the young impressionable students out there trying to develop good study habits.
NOCT ME UP~🔫🔫🔫🐥🐥

I’ve always wanted to stop being the uber lazy person I am and draw a proper FFXIV fanart of my characters. I ended up drawing the female ones only, and I’m not happy with the result orz But that took me a whole week, so I guess I should be glad that I finished OTL
Characters: Clover Blake (hyur), K’mih Yohko (miqo’te), Nonopi Nopi (lalafell), Yura Hagane (Raen), and Rune Kahkol (Xaela). Oh, and Clover’s staff, who is a character too. (Now I realize that I forgot to draw the cat. orz)

People who rail on the quality of Disney’s visual design vs. the quality of its concept art just… don’t know what they’re talking about. It’s so easy to cherry-pick pieces of concept art you think are “prettier,” point at the finished product, and say “THIS IS LAZY AND DISNEY SUCKS”
Like by all means Disney sucks in many ways but don’t use those valid criticisms to dredge up petty complaints that show nothing but complete ignorance of how animated movies are made and blatant disregard for the amount of work that goes into the process
Concept art is supposed to be rougher, looser, and more grandiose than the finished product. It is the product of several artists putting all of their time and energy into creating visual ideas that, after months and months of reworking, are decided on and put into the film. If a concept artist has an idea it is their job to turn it into an image. Keep in mind that concept artists are (usually) not animators. They can pour all of their talents and energy into creating one concept piece. The job of the animator is to make that come to life, and sometimes that’s simply not possible for them to with certain concept designs do given time and budget restraints. What a concept artist spends hours on, the animator has to spend MONTHS on. So the concept work needs to be easy ENOUGH to turn into a moving image. Not easy. Easy ENOUGH
To use a specific example of concept art vs. the finished product, let’s look at the often-lambasted Tangled. Claire Keane is an amazing painter, greatly influenced by renaissance styles, and that shows in her concept work for Tangled. The results are gorgeous. But they’re commonly juxtaposed to images from the finished film and presented as superior visuals that, for no reason other than sucking, Disney chose not to put in the film
That’s simply not the case though. There are so many factors that prevent concept pieces from being fully recreated in a film, from the nitpicking of executives deciding what a film needs to be profitable (remember that corporate Disney and Disney Animation Studios are not entirely the same beast), to the technical limitations of computer animation. Everything you see in a finished product was created by someone who spent countless hours creating it. Nothing and I mean NOTHING in animation is simple. Even if something looks simplistic, it’s not. Which is why complex concept designs have to be watered down. The filmmakers need to decide on the best elements of the concept art and streamline them BEFORE animation even begins. The final product being a simplified version of the concept art is NOT laziness
Also, as with almost all issues the studio is blamed for, Disney is not the only guilty party. Y'all could dredge up concept art for aaaany other studio’s films and the differences between finished product and concept art would be just as vast in most cases. If you’re gonna criticize this aspect of animation, stop pretending Disney is the only studio that does this JUST because you feel like railing on it
Disney has some serious problems and I’m not here to excuse or defend that. And sometimes you just see something in concept art that you think would have been cool. There’s nothing wrong with that. But this is such a pointedly-petty argument that demeans the work of so many artists and shows a wide lack of understanding of the complications of making animated films
A/N: I’M SUCH A BAD PERSON, I PROMISED TO POST THIS LIKE TWO DAYS AGO but I got busy. Sooo anyways, this is my first scenario in soooooo long. Ugh please give me tips!!

Ever since you graduated high school, you wanted to give your parents one else thing to worry about so you decided to get a job. Even though you only worked weekends, the job paid you more than any other places would for an entire week. You were a hotel house keeper. It was indeed a difficult job, cranky customers, harsh managers, and mysterious odors on each floor that changed from day to day.
It was Saturday, you just arrived to work. Everyone seemed busy as usual. After changing into you uniform, as usual you went up to the 14th floor and started cleaning out the rooms. Just as you finished your second room, the manager approached you,”Yah! ______-ah! There you are! Hurry and take this order to room 1403!!” then handing you an order form. “Ah Yes Sir! Right away!” with that you hurried up stairs to get prepare the order.
