going through financial crisis

Enough is ENOUGH

// listen I’ve tried to keep the peace but this person has gone out of their way to get many others involved, and constantly try to initiate unwanted contact, so you know what?

THIS IS A CALLOUT FOR @inkling-lavender FOR HARASSMENT AND PERPETUAL INSTIGATING.

Why? For failure to respect my wishes and constantly trying to bother me after I’ve disclosed many times I wish to be left alone. I’ve had enough.

How did it all start? It began with him shipping me and my friend during a game

Lots of people were in that match, lots of people saw. It was VERY dangerous for myself because my parents often watch me play games, they know who I talk to online and they are homophobic. To imply my friend and I were a couple would be detrimental, but that’s its own issue. Lav did apologize for this, but because of how dangerous and insensitive his actions were, me and my friend wanted to minimize and stop contact with him respectively but instead of respecting our wishes, Lav began harassing and instigating us.

I got messages from several people over the course of some months that where the beginning of a disturbing pattern.

At the time it was shown that he “didn’t know what he was doing” or “didn’t understand” despite constant warnings. It’s no excuse. 

I’ve colour coded separate people so you know they’re different..

I appreciate friends wanting to come to help others in need, but the full story was not given.  Our conversations where private and between adults, but Lav has continued to bring others into this and spreading misinformation to make himself seem like a victim.


He has convinced mutual and non-mutual friends to reach out to us on his behalf instead of just leaving us alone. He claims to be distressed by our presence but instead of blocking us and moving on he continues instigating.  

In January of this year this happened… He tried to claim a fraudulent purchase report on a donation he had given to my friend back in August of last year. At the time my friend was going through a financial crisis and asking for donations, but this donation was also given after he’d been blocked. 

How do I know this report was malicious and not a normal refund request? I have the following screen shot of a conversation where he says he’s doing this to specifically cause trouble for my friend.

I don’t understand where this whole court thing is coming from, let alone why he feels its even necessary. If he’s having trouble because the people who he is harassing told him to A) cease and desist, B) Leave them alone, or C) Go enjoy the splatoon community elsewhere and stop harassing people who clearly do not want involvement in his affairs then there’s an obvious solution; Stop.

To bring it all back. I’m not saying inkling-lavender can’t have fun and enjoy splatoon, I’m not saying he should leave tumblr,. What I’m saying is I’ve seen this shit and SO MANY OTHERS have too and people are distancing themselves for a reason. He’s trying to make himself look like a victim and abusing his friends kindness by having them harass others on his behalf, telling them only parts of what happened and leaving out that we’ve politely and impolitely asked him to stop trying to contact us for over half a year.

What I am doing, is asking that he LEAVES US ALONE. And that he leaves others out of this because its none of their business. We can co-exist without interaction.

And to readers, please be aware of this because I’m sure he’ll try to make himself look like the victim again, but the only reason I felt the need to make this post was because he has not stopped. Even now he’s still harassing me and my friends. Even after being told to back off, being told to leave us alone and being blocked.

We’ve had him blocked on all platforms for months and he has continued to try and pester us through these tactics. We want it to stop.

I’m sorry this is so long, I don’t want any hard feelings but I’ve had it.

Don’t abuse my trust again.

Up in The Villa

Some shows start out with a simple premise–or a nebulous one.
This one, set in the Greek island of Naxos, was the first one filmed for this season ( episodes are frequently shown out of sequence). The idea going in was quite simple: I go to a really nice, laid back Greek island–one with an actual local culture, businesses and income streams outside of tourism–and slide gently into another year of making television whilst maintaining my sun tan from summer vacation.

What did I know about Naxos? What did I expect to find?
I will admit to have done little homework and having had few expectations. I knew that Greece as a nation was going through an awful, crippling financial crisis.  I had asked for a villa where I might putter about and do some cooking as a base of operations. What would it be like, removed from the mainland? Naxos, I knew, (and had insisted) was very different from Mykonos. It was not a party island. It was a blank slate. So the narrow slices of life depicted on this episode are me learning right there along with you. There’s a lot of delicious food. The place is, as one would expect, gorgeous. But there are surprises–and indicators both hopeful and ominous.

Hope you enjoy.

Hey! I'm going through a bit of a financial crisis right now, but I have a huge passion to animate. Do you know of any cheap (or possibly even free) alternatives to Photoshop? Also, your art is fantastic!

Hey there! ♥♥♥ Here’s a great masterpost about free digital art things! I tried out Synfig. im still a newb at this, but, if you’d like, here’s what I learned!


SYNFIG STUDIO

It was overwhelming to see all the windows load up for the first time. You can search Youtube to orient yourself and for tutorials. (I used this one. The first two-thirds of the video is background/history/overall info of the software. Some action begins after 17:29, and things only start moving in Part 2. It’s paced slowly, which I personally like as I have trouble catching words.) It’s not animating frame-by-frame, but it uses keyframes to tween/automatically generate movement between keyframes.

It’s vector-based. If you’re familiar with Inkscape or any other type of vector graphics editor, this’ll feel like home! If not, it may take some getting used to. Vectors are when every line and shapes are calculated rather than drawn on, so you’ll never see pixels no matter how much you zoom in or enlarge.

You can also import in bitmaps/drawings you’ve already made, but they’ll show pixels if you zoom in or scale them too big (so it should be big enough in the first place!). The software acts wonky at times. Save often!

I’m sorry I can’t go more in-depth, I’m still figuring out this software! But I hope you’ll give it a try! ♥

GIMP

You may already know about this software, but I thought I’d mention that you can also make frame-by-frame animation here! Each layer becomes a frame, and you can export it as an animated gif: File>Export…>Select File Type (By Extension)>GIF Image>Export, and then a smaller window appears, and remember to check the “As animation” box!


I hope this helped! Have a whole lot of fun animating! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ♥

P.S.: You can use alternativeTo to find free alternatives to stuff, like Photoshop!

TUMBLR PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Tumblr friends… I am a nobody here and I am hardly a good friend or anything, even though I try, but I’ve seen how people are here and the main reason I stayed is because people have a beautiful heart in here and everyone tries to help out each other and I honestly don’t know who else to talk to. 

 Mushu, my schnauzer, is the love of my life. I found him on the street 6 years ago and he’s been my best friend ever since. 

I currently do freelance work (design & illustration) for a living which has been helping me pay my bills and everything, but my family has been going through some financial crisis and I’ve been trying to help out as much as I can, which means that even though I’m making enough money to sustain myself, pay for a veterinarian and Mushu’s needs, and helping out my parents and siblings a bit, I was not prepared for this: 

 MY DOG WAS POISONED 

 Some fucking crazy stupid people have been leaving poisoned breadcrumbs at the park and there was a massive bird killing and pet poisoning going on today at the park. I don’t know what the fuck is going on, I’m here at the hospital with him, and I just don’t know what to do, they told me he was going to make it but he’s going to need intensive care, I can pay for part of it but he’s going to have to stay here until he gets better and he’s going to need many meds afterwards and I don’t know what to do.

 I’ve tried exploring all my options, loans, credit, family members or friends who can help me out but I’m still short for what would be around $1400 and I can’t seem to find another immediate option and the hospital wont let him stay unless I pay and I just… Please… I am truly desperate… 

 I’m asking for work
Trades
Loans
Donations
Reblogs
Anything just anything that could help. I’ll work for you, I’ll do anything just please help me save my best friend’s life… I don’t know where I’d be right now without him.
I don’t even know how donations or any of this works but please inbox me if you can help. 


Thank you so much for reading


EDIT: Today is August 8th, 2015, I’m in Mexico City where it’s currently 1:34 am, please check my tumblr for updates about this because this is merely an emergency, thank you so much!!!!

WEEKLY WITCHY SPOTLIGHT : MythicJeweler

Starting another new series in which I promote an underappreciated store or service every week that handmakes their own jewellery! Send me an ask if you would like to be promoted next week.

MythicJeweler is an Etsy store run by the blog pagan-witchs-reference-guide Here is a quote from the page.

“This store is centralized around creating things from different mythologies! Currently we are centered on Greek Mythology but are in the process of adding in Norse Mythology!”

As you can see this is a great store if you want to buy thoughtful little pieces in tribute to the greek or norse deity you follow. And it’s cheap, too! I myself will be buying one of the beautiful norse rune necklaces next week.

(On a side note; this seller is going through a bit of a financial crisis at the minute and really needs the help of the community. Even if you can not afford to buy any of the pieces, reblogs are appreciated greatly.)

These are not the best pics, so apologies in advance! I’m going through a bit of a bad financial crisis on top of a very emotionally draining job situation right now (my new job’s management is pretty horrible and I’ve been treated with a lot of disrespect but I can’t quit until I find another job or I can make enough selling my collection) and I really need help! I don’t want to lose my apartment so I wanted to see if anyone is interested in making offers on any of these gals before I list them anywhere else. CAMs are nude, no stands included with any of these dolls. If anyone has questions or wants more pics feel free to PM me or reblog this!!

I can also accept repaint commissions! I have one in progress for Monsterhime and ask for patience since my job is scheduling me six days a week in future, but we can talk prices if anyone is interested in that!

Signal boosting is just as appreciated. Thanks in advance everyone! :D
