I've always felt interested in and drawn to Judaism even at times when I aligned myself with agnosticism, but I don't know much about the faith. What is the best way to go about learning more in a respectful way?
That’s a fabulous question! Following are some of my favorite resources that should be helpful:
A wry smile is a gentler, self-mocking alternative to a sarcastic smile. I personally prefer to use it instead of /s because /s feels more like how you’d express that what you wrote you would have voiced with a clearly sarcastic tone, and roll your eyes in derision while saying it. When action tagging a wry smile, it’s more suggesting that it’s said evenly, maybe a bit jokingly, with a one-sided smile.
I find it really funny that it’s this, my smiling delivery of a really bad joke about not understanding or being understood by people these days. This is what got people laughing at me using an old 90s style way of typing: action tagging, and using emoticons instead of emoji. And not understanding what the action tags and emoticons mean or what they’re there for.
You guys proved my point so well.
And now I feel really freaking old. Time to go sit on my rocking chair and yell at the neighbor kids to get off my lawn.
@legalhoney asked me how do I convert traditional drawings to be colored and stuff so this is how I work it out. I use GIMP 2.8 btw. I’m sorry I’m not that good at explaining things but hope this will help :)

It’s really sad how much I’ve started automatically converting to Tokyo time whenever I look at a clock these last few days. I just caught myself being all “hmm 10 pm, Dan and Phil should be awake and tweeting soon- it’s noon there.” I desperately need to sort out my priorities jfc.
