happiness is a beginning

Dad! Today is my birthday and I'm finally getting Overwatch! Any tips? (I really want to see if I can main Mercy or Lucio...)


Some starter tips:

  • Use the training mode right at the beginning. It’s basically like a shooting range with some harmless bots and it gives you a chance to test everyone’s moves without being shot at.
  • There’s no shame in playing against AI instead of real people. Try out the different modes and see what you love best.
  • Don’t hoard loot boxes. The contents are determined the moment you get the box, not when you open them. So holding onto them serves no purpose.
  • Build up a coin stockpile for skins. You never know when something new may come out that you’ll want to snatch up.
  • If you play with the mic on, be aggressive with the mute feature if people are being assholes.
  • Also be aggressive with blocking people if they make you uncomfortable or make the game unbearable for you
  • Experiment a bit with each character, see what feels best to you!
  • You don’t have to commit to a single main if you don’t want to. You can change it up however you want!

Inktober Day 21 + Happy Birthday, Ranpo-san!

I’d planned since the beginning of the month to draw this so that I wouldn’t have to draw two separate things, but I think I ended up just making it harder on myself… This ended up taking me about 5 hours total. It did turn out better than I’d expected, though, and I’m surprised those shading lines managed to stay pretty much parallel. Usually they’ll slant by about 30 degrees by the end.

But god, I really hate drawing arms.

all i’ve ever aspired to do is love people; love them so fully and fiercely that their life is transformed each day when life begins anew: happy, light and certain. they smile as they sip their coffee, as they walk from place to place, as they greet friends, old and new, because they know behind their every blink, every breath, every smile is a person who loves them so entirely that worry simply has no place in their heart.


Happy 10th Anniversary New Who (26.03.2005)

Thank you for coming back and for changing the lives of a whole new generation for the better.

  • me:never mind
I never liked sleeping with other people. I would get too hot or my arm would go numb and I would inevitably pry myself away and retreat to my own side of the bed. I never liked sleeping with other people until you fell asleep holding me as if I was a priceless treasure that someone might try to steal from you in the middle of the night. I still wake up periodically throughout the night but now I wake up to your kisses on my shoulder and I briefly realize how happy I am before drifting back to sleep. No, I never liked sleeping with other people but then again, I’ve never liked any of those people as much as I like you.
