guys i worked hard on this

Tired

Can we be honest with each other for a minute? Like, can I just admit some stuff here? This has been a hard year. This has been my no good, very bad year.

I am tired. No. I am TIRED.

There is bone tired and then there is marrow tired. I can visualize my marrow: worn down, thin. Grey.

I get to work later every day.

Because it is hard to drag myself into that zone. Those glassy eyes.

I cannot fight the battle of the phone anymore.

I cannot repeat myself anymore.

Dude.

I typed out those directions. Then I printed them out. Then I emailed them to you. Then I read them out loud. Then I wrote them on the board. Then I acted them out. With gestures. With accents.

How you gonna tell me, “I wasn’t paying attention?” For reals?

Guys, hello? This is my best material.

I have never written better lesson plans. I promise. They are meeting standards. They are based on essential questions. They are topical. They are fascinating.

They are useless.

I am old. I was BFFs with your ancestors. I remember the original thirteen colonies. I built the pyramids.

And in those decades, nay centuries, nay eons, I learned some tricks. My bag of tricks rivals Santa’s bag of gifts.

And. None. Of. Them. Work.

Every morning I have thousands of new grey hairs.

The circles under my eyes are canyons. They are purple. They have area codes.

Everyone is bored.

I used to be funny. No one has laughed with me in so long. I only cry in private. I only scream in my nightmares.

Hope does not return my calls.

My students used to just get high. They used to just get pregnant. Now, even the gamers are getting incarcerated.

It is getting bleak when the only poem which seems relevant goes, “Not with a bang but a whimper.”

But.

I am not beaten yet.

The other day, someone remembered what an inference was.

You know?

The other day, someone asked for a highlighter.

The other day, someone was actually looking up a word on the phone under the desk.

The other day, a kid made a joke and it was funny.

This is not a good year in my room. Fine. It is not a good year in my country. Fine. But even Scarlet O’Hara knew that tomorrow was another day.

Q&A Saturday (Part 2)

(Jaleena pls) 

AAA! They are all EXCITED! Dario is wayyyy too eager about the punching down special, too!

Aaa, welcome to my blog! <3 Thank you for following! Please don’t be ashamed, it’s totally normal! Their Splatoon bios are right here! (Altho the pics are really old, haha!) For their original selves, I’m still working on it, but please don’t worry! Take the blog at whatever pace is best for you <3 

LOL, there is definitely a kidnapping happening there

I’m so excited to work on the comics, especially all the octo!Dario ones, so I hope you’re excited to see them!

I really love you guys, you’re all so terribly sweet. But I struggle with making friends- I’m really hard to talk to on a personal level unless we naturally become friends over time and even then, I struggle to get back to people. But! I was wondering if you guys would ever like to have a discord server altogether? I think it’d be tons of fun and I would love to have splat sessions, streams, and movie nights with you guys! Let me know!

That’s all for today! It’s a little short because I didn’t get many Splatoon asks but thank you all for the questions! I’m very happy to draw and talk for you guys! Again, let me know what you think about a discord server! Have a great weekend!

Man, I’ve been waiting to announce this for forever now! Some of you may have seen some of my re-designs of a few characters a while back like Eon and Armodrillo, and that’s because I’ve been spending a lot of time working with a really talented guy, Rob Orpilla.

My job as character designer and story supervisor has been put forward to helping Rob get his dream comic titled “5 Years Later” become a reality. He’s worked super hard on it, and his dedication and work has been incredible to witness. Rob has definitely made this a comic for fans, by fans, so I think you’ll all really enjoy it!

You can find out what it’s all about in this video by Rob himself, featuring some work from your truly! I highly recommend liking Rob’s Facebook page for amazing stuff from him! (www.facebook.com/KuroTheArtist…)

COMING THIS APRIL

5 Years Later is a non-profit, fan-made comic book.
“Danny Phantom” was created by Butch Hartman and is owned by Nickelodeon Studios.
“Ben 10” was created by Man of Action and is owned by The Cartoon Network.

amateur-studyblr  asked:

Although I don't know, speak, read, or learn Korean I couldn't help but admire how much you do for those who do. It's really sweet to see how you've created a community of learners and how you help them all through.

Oh my gosh, I was so happy when I saw this I screenshot it and sent to my friends and family… But seriously, this really hits me hard and validates what I do here. Obviously, I want to do more and I DO plan to do more. I’m working a YouTube channel because videos are going to be more helpful than just text posts but that won’t happen until after the semester and I move. But like I have SO many things I want to help not just myself learn Korean but all of my followers. So hear this is just…thank you, so much really. 

And I really do hope I’m helping you guys learn. I know I don’t post as much as I want to right now (my life is a mess right now, to be honest) but I’m thankful that you guys are sticking around. I’m also thankful you followed in the first place cause that wasn’t necessarily the plan when I started this.

So thank you again, not just to you who sent this, but to everyone that follows this blog (which just reached 9,000 followers!!!).

I’m being so mushy for being just a studyblr but I love you guys, okay?

Life update

Not that my life is very exciting but this is what’s going on right now. 

Work has been so busy and so stressful and I feel as though I am juts over worked and under appreciated. I stay late so often and work so hard and I don’t get overtime or even any recognition or thanks for it. So I have decided that it’s going to stop. I will be leaving on time very day and arriving just before 9, I don’t get paid enough to be so stressed. 

I have finally re joined the gym. This has taken a while because the past few months I have been focusing on my diet and I wanted to get back to a weight that felt more comfortable and now I have. I still have a long way to go but I always enjoy going to they gym, I think it’s a great stress reliever. I am also going to start running again, I’ve run 2 5K’s before but I would really like to do a 10K. I have not run in, probably, over a year so it is going to be tough. I’m going for my first test run today so I will let you all know how it goes. But I like having goals and being able to run a 10K would be a fantastic achievement for me. 

Boys, boys, boys. It seems that I am surrounded by boys when I want a man who knows what he wants and there is no bullshit, immature games. I downloaded tinder because I haven’t been on a date since I broke up with my ex in June. So I was talking to some people n there and arranged a date and then cancelled it. I had a really tough week at work and I just wasn’t in the mood. I don’t think Tinder is really for me, I find myself being too judgey and I often find people more attractive after I get to know them. I don’t want a relationship right now because I still have a lot of work to do on myself. But a random date would be fun, who knows? There’s a guy at work who I think is attractive but I can’t decide if I am attracted to him or if I’m just bored? Nothing would happen while I still worked there though, not that anything would because I don’t even know if he would be interested. 

Scholarship interview is in less than a month and I am so stressed and nervous and worried. This would be a scholarship t go back to university to study the Bar course. I am prepping already and all I can do is go in and do my best, if they don’t like me and aren’t impressed I will just have to re think. I will be very happy once it’s over. 

Now I’m going to get my gym clothes on and go for my first run in over a year, which I’m sure will be terrible but we all start somewhere. I hope you are all havign a lovely weekend. This post was a lot longer than I intended it to be, sometimes I just start typing and can’t stop. Much love xoxoxox

I feel so bad that we couldn’t get the 4th win for them,, that Jackson didn’t get the opportunity to win an award with GOT7 this comeback :-( but don’t be discouraged we still worked hard, got7 was competing against some very popular artist with high digital sales. we just have to work harder next comeback guys! congratulations for the 4 wins we’ve been able to get for them!!

Artist: Jeon Jungkook -BTS

This is my first Jungkook scenario, I hope you guys enjoy it and request yours ideas.

You were super tired after a really long day at college, eight thirty classes weren’t your thing but when that was the only choice you had you couldn’t say no. You were super glad that the day has ended, but being able to see your boyfriend after a long day was what pushed you through the day.

You were on your way to the Big Hit building where you knew Jungkook would be pratcing at, he was working hard like always and you knew he would still be there for a while, so you decided to go and hang out with him for a while since you guys haven’t hung out in a while due to his busy schedule and your classes.

You always got excited when you were in the building because you knew you were going to see your boyfriend and his members which always brought a smile to your face hanging out with them.

You were just looking around the practice rooms to see which room he was in, and when you finally found him a huge smile was brough on your face. You opened the door and went in, he was still practicing and the music was loud that he didn’t notice you. You were always playful when you were with him so you were trying to copy his dance moves to get his attention, and it worked. He noticed from the side of his eyes a movement and when he looked there you were trying to copy his dance moves which you were really bad at. It made him laugh seeing that sight. You dropped your bag to the side and went to him to give him a hug in which he had his arms open and ready for your hugs.

“I missed you” you said closely to his ear.

“I missed you more” he said and hugged you even tighter, his hug lasted long and you were kind of wondering if something was wrong, you guessed it was probably that he was tired from all the practice.

You guys were sitting on the floor and it was super quiet while you guys ate the snacks your brought with you for your and him to enjoy, Jungkook was being extremely quite when he usually has so much to talk about

“Jungkook are you okay” you asked

“Yeah” he said

“Are you sure” you asked again and he nodded but you didn’t believe him

“What’s wrong with my kookie” you said being cute and pinching his cheeks

“Drop it, it’s nothing” he said and raised his voice which surprised you

“Okay” you said in a defeated voice which made him feel guilty for raising his voice when you were just making sure he’s okay

“I’m sorry” he said and broke the silence, you didn’t say anything because you felt like he wasn’t just apologizing for raising his voice, so you let him continue.

“I’m sorry that I’m barely around, I’m sorry I’m not the perfect boyfriend that should treat you the way you deserve to be treated, I’m sorry I can’t take you on normal dates and show you off to everyone” he said and sighed that he said everything that’s been on his mind

“Baby, you don’t have to be sorry for anything, non of these things really matter to me, I don’t mind that we don’t go out on dates, to me as long as I get to see you and spend time with you is all I care about”

“But I was so shitty I didn’t even do anything special on Valentine’s Day for you” he said

“You got me flowers and a gift which you totally didn’t have to, you show you love me everyday I don’t need that one day” you told him, you held his hands trying to calm him down

“Baby, I don’t mind our indoor dates or our movie nights, their even better because we get to cuddle, so don’t worry about anything like that okay” you said and asked him, and he just nodded his head, but you looked at him giving him the look for him to answer.

“Okay” he said and broke in a smile at you trying to scold him. 

You got up which made him a little confused as to what you were doing, you plugged your phone in the stereo system and blasted their new song. 

“You promised you would teach me the choreography, come on” you said whining at him when he was giving you questioning looks.

 “But you look super tired” he said trying to reason with you.

 “Am not” you said and started jumping around to prove your point in which he broke out in laugher at your antics

“Fineee” he said and he always ended up agreeing to what you say. 

Jungkook ended up walking you home and him being the gentleman he is insisted on carrying your bag for you even when you told him it wasn’t heavy. You always loved those unplanned late, mini dates that you guys had, you didn’t have to dress up, you could just be yourself and not worry about anything. 

IBO 49

I DO NOT LIKE HOW IBO IS GOING TO END

IT’S GETTING MORE AND MORE DEPRESSING, AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT TEKKADAN’S SITUATION, THEY’RE AS GOOD AS DEAD

AND WITH WHAT HAPPENED TO ORGA (I FUCKIN STILL REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS SHIT *CRIES*) AND THE WORDS HE LEFT, IT’S PRETTY MUCH OBVIOUS WHERE TEKKADAN’S HEADING AT

I GAVE UP BELIEVING THAT THIS SERIES WILL HAVE A HAPPY ENDING AND THAT THE ENTIRE TEKKADAN WILL SURVIVE

JFC THIS IS HONESTLY MORE TRAGIC THAN VICTORY GUNDAM

HUSH

I AM SO FUCKING PROUD OF HUSH. SINCE THE START OF S2, I’VE BEEN ROOTING FOR HIM TO FINALLY BECOME A BADASS PILOT. AND HE FUCKING DID. THROUGH HIS HARD WORK AND NOT THE AV SYSTEM. AND HIS CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THO SWIFT, WAS GOOD, TOO! FROM BEING SALTY OVER MIKAZUKI AND AN ASSHOLE TO ATRA, TO ACTUALLY BEING A NICE GUY WHO WAS EVENTUALLY RECOGNIZED BY MIKA WHOM HE ADMIRES. HE MAY NOT BE AS GOOD AS TEKKADAN’S VETERAN PILOTS, BUT HE DID MANAGE TO BE RECOGNIZED BY MIKAZUKI, AND THAT IS, A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT.

I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, HUSH

MACKY AND GAELIO

MACKY’S DEATH WAS ALREADY A GIVEAWAY WITH THE EPISODE TITLE (FUMITAN ADMOSS, ANEW RETURNER… REMEMBER?)

MACKY AND GAELIO ARE OBVIOUS EXPIES TO CHAR AZNABLE AND GARMA ZABI, BUT THE TWIST HERE TO THE CHAR AND GARMA EXPY IS THAT, THE GARMA CLONE LIVED AND GOT TO KILL THE CHAR CLONE. WHEN VIDAR WAS INTRODUCED, I WAS LIKE, “HEY ANOTHER CHAR CLONE (MASKED MAN), BUT THE VOICE SAYS IT’S GAELIO” AND IT WAS AN INTERESTING TWIST TO HAVE GAELIO SURVIVE. WHAT HAPPENED TO GAELIO AND MACKY IN S2 IS LIKE “WHAT IF GARMA SURVIVED?” 

MACKY IS AN ASSHOLE. IT WAS PRETTY HARD TO TELL WHAT MACKY’S ALIGNMENT IS SINCE HE HAS THAT CHAR CLONE BRANDED ON HIM. HE WASN’T A GOOD GUY AND HE WAS NEITHER A BAD GUY. HE’S A FRICKIN GRAY SHADE IN THE SERIES. BUT DAMN THIS EPISODE GOT ME CRYING FOR BOTH HIM AND GAELIO. AND SEVERAL WEEKS BACK, WHEN A FRIEND OF MINE GOT INTO IBO, WE HAD THIS CONVERSATION ABOUT “WHAT IF MACKY TOLD HIS PLANS TO HIS FRIENDS OR RELIED ON HIS FRIENDS?” AND IN EPISODE 49, WE GOT OUR ANSWER AS TO WHY MACKY PREFERRED THE LIFE OF A LONE WOLF.

AND WHAT ELSE MAKES MACKY THE BEST CHAR CLONE? SINCE HE’S A CHAR CLONE, AND HE HAS BETRAYED HIS FRIENDS, WE WERE GIVEN THAT IMPRESSION THAT HE WILL BETRAY TEKKADAN. AND THERE WERE SEVERAL TIMES THAT THE STAFF MADE US THINK THAT HE WAS THE ONE BEHIND ORGA’S ASSASSINATION.

BUT HE DID NOT

MACKY DID NOTHING WRONG.

…ONLY TO HIS FRIENDS YES, AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT MACKY’S CAUSE, MACKY’S INTENTION IS GOOD, TBH. GETTING RID OF A CORRUPT ORGANIZATION? IT’S GOOD ALRIGHT. BUT IN ORDER TO DO THAT, HE HAD TO BETRAY HIS FRIENDS.

MACKY HAD A BIT OF A CONTRADICTION HERE. BECAUSE IN THEIR FINAL DUEL, MACKY DID SAY THAT HE WILL KILL GAELIO FOR REAL. MACKY REALLY DID SEE GAELIO AS A FRIEND, AND FROM THE WAY HE SAID THAT HE’LL KILL GAELIO FOR REAL, HE MUST HAVE HAD SECOND THOUGHTS ON KILLING GAELIO THAT HE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO NOT KILL GAELIO, OR HE INTENTIONALLY DID NOT KILL GAELIO.

GAELIO IS TOO NICE. HE’S STILL THAT NICE GUY WE LOVED FROM S1. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY WHEN YOU MESS WITH THE NICE GUYS, RIGHT?

THE QUESTION NOW IS, WHAT WILL GAELIO’S DISPOSITION NOW BE? MACKY IS ALREADY OUT OF THE FORMULA. WILL HE STILL SIDE WITH RUSTAL, OR IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE ON HIS MIND? IDK, BUT I NOTICED FROM EPISODE 46 OR 47 THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING OFF ABOUT GAELIO, AND IN EPISODE 49, HE SEEMS TO HAVE HIS OWN THOUGHTS ABOUT THE SITUATION AGAINST TEKKADAN AND GJALLARHORN.

Hoperai week, Day 7
Theme: Because you are here

…………Before I regret, let me post this shoddy work. Drawing is so hard! I can not recreate my imagine scene at all…

Well, just imagine that when Hope is facing a new challage, he need to go on, and he remind himself that Light will be with him.

Thank you for everyone who joined the activity, I am so satisfy, because of you guys’ amazing works.

anonymous asked:

Great work guys with the director's chair series I enjoy it, but if I may add a thought, the wonderful cinematographers/cameramen David Klein and Georgio Scali deserve some recognition too. They work closely with the director and discuss ideas but many of the visuals and camera/lighting choices you describe is their artistry. They're the Directors of Photography, not just camera holders channeling the director's vision. Anyway, love what you do, not a critique, just a thought. Cheers! ;-)

Absolutely! Why do I get the feeling you’re associated with HL? :-) I’ve been on set and seen the hard work David and Georgio do!

We could probably be a little more specific wrt whom we attribute credit and will try to do so. Just as we often give Gansa credit (or otherwise) for the story, we’ve done the same with the directors - possibly too casually. In the mean time, everyone, meet David:

“On Homeland I tend to make my version of natural and raw lighting look like real life but with more contrast and less color.” -CreativeCow.net

(And, for fans of Kevin Smith movies out there - me! - Klein worked on Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy.)

Georgio Scali keeps a lower profile but, damn, he has the coolest house EVER (here)! And, for any Foo Fighters fans out there, he worked on this hilarious video (here).

Today, I friendzoned a guy even though I love him because I know that no matter how hard we try, we’ll never work out. I’m heartbroken, and I hate myself for upsetting him. But I know it’s the best thing to do. The right thing is always fucking hard to do.
He’s the kind of guy that will move mountains for you. I just happened to be the girl who’ll never believe she’s enough for anyone.

Y'all, it’s currently 7:30pm where I live and I’ve been streaming the MV since 5am in the morning and we’re so close to 3M finally, please don’t stop streaming!!!!!

Came Back Wrong (didnt come back at all) - An Elsewhere U Tale

Hey all! As always, many thanks to @charminglyantiquated for the wonderful sandbox that is @elsewhereuniversity.

I’m still working on Feathers, by the by,  just… not in chronological order. I now know exactly how it ends, and a pretty solid idea of how to get there though!

In the mean time, have this. …Directly related to working on Feathers and this at the same time: it is fricken hard to keep switching back and forth between past and present tense. I think I caught all my slip ups in this, but let me know if you guys catch anything!

Crossposted to AO3 here.

“My name’s Flowerpower. Well. Ok, yeah, no, it’s not. You know I mean my name, not my Name. My mom was a hippie, yeah, but not that much of one.” The girl sat leaning against a cave wall, knees bent nearly to her chest, elbows resting upon them. She didn’t care that the moss was leaching water into her clothes where she leaned against it, and though her flesh goose-pimpled she didn’t feel cold.

“Back when I first got to Elsewhere, I’d just been getting over the last gasp of a truly nasty case of mono, so I ended up missing orientation. I had to make an appointment in the administrative building to fill out the paperwork I missed, and introduced myself to the counselor who was guiding me through it all.” She paused, as if waiting for a reaction. After a second longer, she went on.

“I introduced myself by Name.  Which. Yeah. I know now, but like I said: I missed orientation. Looking back, I was so friggin lucky that my counselor is the one who’s married to the monster-hunter librarian.  She didn’t even think of taking advantage. Still hasn’t, may whatever she believes in bless her.” The girl- Flowerpower- sighed, let her head loll back against the stone, idly twisted her ring.

Announcement

We’ve had some concern about whether or not the blog is still active, and to address your concerns: Yes, we are. I mentioned before that I was really only able to post confessions during weekends because of my busy schedule with work and school, and on top of that my school has been having internet connection issues and I’m hit especially hard since I live on the very outskirts of campus. But, they’re apparently working on fixing the issue soon. That being said, the ask box will be closed for the time being, and opened again when we get through the large amount of confessions that have piled up since the admin change. I really hope you guys understand and I thank you so much for sticking around through all of this!

And I call this gorgeous piece of work: Why Do I Lack The Discipline To Finish Any Project I Start??

Or for short: The Creative Process

In other news, my Nathaniel shirt makes me take myself 99% less seriously, which is helpful when my mood is starting to plummet, my job makes me unhappy, and my plans for self employment seem fairly unattainable.

Also, I badly need a haircut.
