I'm sorry you've got some people being mean and rude to you. You're doing fabulous hun! You're wonderfully nice and patient with all of us question askers, and your work is amazing! It comes out unbelievably fast, especially with all your multitasking, and it's all of an amazing quality and impressive length! Thank you very very much for all of your hard work and dedication! I really appreciate it! Be sure to take sometime to take care of yourself too! There's no rush! Thank you for everything!

Naw! Chickadee! You’re such a sweetie-pie, thank you

Two years difference 💙 There is no easy way, there is no secret 💙 It’s gonna take hard work and sacrifice 💙 You will want to give up, you will cry, you will probably think you can’t do it 💙 But you can 💙 Never give up on yourself because you are capable of so much more than you think 💙 DO NOT GIVE UP 💙

2013 vs. 2017. When you look at the difference between these two pictures it’s quite dramatic but there were dozens of in-progress pictures between these two! This doesn’t happen overnight. My biggest tip is to not let one bad day or meal ruin your week. Progress is inevitable if you stay consistent. You don’t have to be perfect but you have to learn to bounce back from set backs! The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but building the new ❤

@markiplier This not only made me subscribe to you but peaked my interest in the FNAF series and the lore, making me appreciate the hard work and the dedication that goes into horror games and love them just the same :) (even if i still get the spooks) oh yeah and LUCKY FLANNEL!!!! 

I hardly remember the girl in the before picture, but I don’t want to forget her. I don’t want to forget what it was like to feel like a prisoner in my own body. The pain, the powerlessness to change. Change is slow and getting started is hard, but it’s possible when broken down into tiny manageable habits. If you’ve never struggled with obesity, it’s easy to think you just need to muster up a little discipline and put down the fork, but you’re wrong. It’s so much more complex than that. There’s a reason why 95% of those who lose regain it and it’s not because they’re lazy. We probably judge ourselves more than you because we’ve all been taught that it’s our fault. I’m working really hard to have compassion for myself – then and now –and for those who share the burden of obesity. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. But it doesn’t make us bad or lazy or stupid, it makes us sick. and I’m sick of a culture that believes otherwise and marginalizes people who are trying and failing despite their other achievements. Sorry to go off on a tangent, but this disconnect in understanding and compassion pains me. I am strong willed and determined and pursue my dreams with vigor, but when it comes to this, if I let my guard down, I’ll be back there in an instant. Seriously, eff obesity, but more than that, eff anyone who doesn’t have compassion for those of us who are up against it. Excuse my language, it’s the only word that feels appropriate this morning. Keep fighting the good fight babes and never give up. Happy Humpday 🐫

These two illustrations are 5 years apart.

 The first illustration on the left, was made about two months after I got my first graphics tablet and photoshop. The one on the right was drawn on monday. Talent only gets you so far, the rest is dedication, hard work and practice. My art isn’t so much a result of talent but a result of constant practice. 

“There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equals as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that’s that. I am not talented. I am obsessed.”

George ‘Joji’ Miller aka Filthy Frank Appreciation Day

You guys don’t realize that I exist as well as a human. There is Frank, Pink guy, Salamander man, there’re all these wonderful fuckers living here but then there’s me as well and people not knowing that I existed and there were just these guys really gave me a lot of stress because I’m a normal person just like the rest of you guys. (x) (x)

i have been thinking a lot about superheroes, and how the millennium children were born without one. we live in the aging heroes of our parents and grandparents, the familiar stories with problems from eras before our own; where victory comes as a result of hard work and dedication, where goodness and truth are a promised ending.

our heroes got old. our heroes had life breathed into them again only for us to start seeing the problems: it was fantasy, there was nothing to believe in. our heroes haven’t been reborn, only a few new ones have been made. we grew up reading about worlds where justice meant something only to wake up where justice is unequal, where rich means powerful and rich means getting away with it and rich means the hero comes to dinner with you instead of spending it in brooklyn on the subway. 

we watched other people get married in princess costumes in parades we’d not be able to afford. our heroes wouldn’t cater to us, we didn’t have the money to invite sleeping beauty to our baby shower. we bought movies where captain america punches nazis only to be told that we shouldn’t fight nazis. batman strings up criminals but a boy found guilty of violent assault gets off with a walk. robin hood refuses to show up, we’re forced to crowdfund cancer survivors as the wealthy get tax cuts. we love superheros, watch all of the x-men movies even though the timeline makes no sense anymore - but they’re not born from our struggles. they’re not coming from our wars.

why are there so few heroes anymore.

Congratulations on 16 million subscribers!!!!

It seems like only yesterday I saw your 15k subscriber special and now the channel is already at 16 million!

I am so incredibly proud of you, Jack, for never giving up, for always being honest and for always making me feel like I have a place to go to whenever bad things start happening around me, watch some awesome content and forget about everything. Thank you for 4 years of hard work and dedication, thank you for being such a good person.

Even though I may never be able to tell you this in person, I wanted to thank you for saving me from myself

I’ve been battling with depression and anxiety for the longest time and I’ve never managed to find something that could calm me down. Until I found your channel, Jack.  Now, whenever I feel sad, or depressed, or anxious, I watch your videos or look at a photo of your smile and it calmes me down. So thank you for that too… :)

To many more milestones, achievements and celebrations!

I love you, Jack.

You know what’s the best thing about visiting China? Seeing and hearing Yixing everywhere. His hard work and dedication is definitely paying off because he’s insanely popular. He’s on so many shows, there’s cardboard cutouts of him in the mall, he’s even on the freaking popsicles! I’m surrounded by him right now and I love it so much.

Regardless of what happens tonight in the finale, again, let’s all be mindful of all the hard work that was put into making this story come to life. The cast and the rest of the crew work their butts off all year round to have this magical world come to life, the least we could do, as their fans, is appreciate their hard work and dedication to please us. No matter how much you love or hate a certain cast member, remember that they’re only human beings and are capable of making mistakes. Those same exact people may or may not play your favorite character, but at the end of the day, they made this show possible with their amazing acting.

Also, differences aside, whether some issues get resolved tonight or not, it is just a part of the plot that keeps the show going. No matter how frustrated we might get with certain things, the show isn’t ending anytime soon if we continue to support them. With that being said, let’s all enjoy the last episode of this season respectfully and in peace.

rant for hufflepuffs

hello it’s ur friendly neighborhood hufflepuff here.

now, i have something that i need to get off my chest. i hate, hate, hate how hufflepuffs are only known as being cute, fluffy, adorable, little beans. i HATE it. yes, hufflepuffs are cute and stuff but THAT’S NOT ALL WE ARE.

you hear gryffindor, you think “brave.”

you hear ravenclaw, you think “incredibly intelligent.”

you hear slytherin, you think “ambitious.”

you hear hufflepuff, you think “bean!”

no. that is NOT all we are. do you know how long it took me to accept being a hufflepuff? a very long time. i took my first sorting test on pottermore three? years ago. i got hufflepuff and was incredibly disappointed. i immediately made another email just so i could retake it. i got ravenclaw and was happier, but not incredibly happy. so i made a third email. i got gryffindor and was off the charts on the happy graph. you want to know why i was disappointed on getting hufflepuff? because i wanted – and still want – to be more than just “an adorable little bean.” i want to brave and intelligent and ambitious but when you’re a hufflepuff, you’re just an adorable little bean. also, hufflepuff’s traits are completely ignored. WE ARE LOYAL, DEDICATED, HARD WORKING, PATIENT (not me hahah), KIND, FAIR AND TOLERANT (once again, not me at times) PEOPLE. WE ARE NOT JUST BEANS.

a year later i made a fourth email so i could retake the pottermore test to decide once and for all what house i am in. i got hufflepuff. and while i wasn’t the happiest, i began to think.

cedric diggory, a 17 year old boy who out of all of hogwarts, was chosen to be in the triwizard tournament. a 17 year old boy who told his peers to stop wearing those badges which showed unkind feelings toward his competitor. a 17 year old boy who felt it would only be fair to give a hint to his FELLOW COMPETITOR in that same tournament about a task. a 17 year old boy who didn’t have to tell his competitor about the task, who didn’t have to tell his competitor that they would both be winners if they grabbed the trophy at the same time. it would’ve been so easy to just keep his mouth shut and not tell his peers anything, to keep his mouth shut and not tell his competitor about the task, to just lunge for the trophy. but he didn’t. he was fair and he was kind and he was brave until the very end of his too short life.

newt scamander, who was expelled from his school because he decided to help his friend and take the blame for a prank that went too far. who tried to calm a teenage boy who didn’t understand the powers he had. who cared so much about these creatures, he couldn’t let harm come to them. newt could have just let his friend be expelled for her prank, he could’ve let the teenage boy just suffer for his own, he could have just let the ministry take his magical creatures but he didn’t because he’s kind and he’s caring and patient and tolerant.

nymphadora tonks, who was a hufflepuff, lacked the ability to behave properly in class yet got outstanding marks. who became an auror when she left school. who gave birth to a son, also a hufflepuff - mind you, yet went immediately into a war with her husband, unsure if her husband and herself would make it out of this war alive. tonks could have chosen a safer job, she could’ve stayed with her son in safety, but she didn’t because she was a smart and brave and hard working and dedicated and loyal hufflepuff.

hufflepuffs are loyal to their friends and family. they are hard working and dedicated when it comes to school work, and work in general. they are patient and tolerant when need be. they are fair and kind to people who deserve it, and even sometimes to those who don’t. they care deeply and they deserve more than to just be deemed as “adorable.”

i am a proud hufflepuff and i am absolutely sick of just being seen as adorable. i am so much more than that. i am loyal, hard working, dedicated, kind, fair, and even patient and tolerant at times. but i am also intelligent, i am ambitious, i can be sarcastic and sassy like you’ve never seen before. i am brave in my own way. and so is every single hufflepuff out there.

hufflepuffs deserve so much more than to be deemed as just adorable. they are so much more than that.
