how i am spending my weekend

9. How much time do you spend drawing on an average day?

Thanks for asking my dear :)

I typically draw every evening after work or on weekend nights. I am very much a night owl and night time is actually when I work best. I will usually draw 8pm to 1 or 2am-ish. Whether it is working on a commission or working on random stuff for fun. …like this quick Shiro I tried to do from memory….jfc I am sorry hot space dad…it’s been so long since I have watched voltron DX

I have been doing this continually for a little rover a year now. I had a dry spell of not drawing much for about 4-5 years! Adult life took over but now I am taking my life back and making time :)

Poly show idea

After hearing my wife and gf spending he weekend together while I am away for work I thought if a cute poly skit.

*full suit man comes into house, puts hat on rack, puts briefcase down*
‘Honeys, I’m home.’
*two 1950’s aesthetic women come out of the kitchen*
'Welcome home honey’.
*one wife in a power suit kisses man*
'well I am off to work. Someone has to keep the gears and cogs turning. You two behave now.’
*man sits in large chair*
'How was your day my dear?
*1950’s victory curl housewife*
'It was lovely. We went to a protest at town hall, picked up a honey ham, and I made a coffee cake while [other wife] fixed the faucet that has been leaking.
*man holds her hand*
That is lovely. I love honey ham, and that faucet has been such a hassel. I am just useless at plumbing.

So, everyone loves lucy meets poly.
Ehh?! Ehh!?


Time for Friday Reads! Here’s what we’re working on:

Camila Domonoske: I’m reading Not In God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence, a theological work by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks; Sobbing Superpower, a collection of poems by Tadeusz Rozewicz; and The Hopefuls, by Jennifer Close, which is … kind of a weird book to be reading right now, honestly. It’s griping about life in Obama’s D.C.

Colin Dwyer: The Sword of the Lictor. My Gene Wolfe-apalooza proceeds apace.

Karen Grigsby Bates: Just started Zadie Smith’s Swing Time, and am loving it.  Can’t wait to spend more time on it over the weekend, as I procrastinate doing anything about Thanksgiving.

And I just got Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Sympathizer from the library. How about you?


‘Tis a 5 day work week for yours truly. The college doesn’t really subscribe to federal holidays, so the only break I’ll get this semester is spring break. Absolutely no complaints because (a) Spring break is only 2 weeks away and (b) I get out of school at the end of April…dang this semester is going fast (again, no complaints).

Plus, I get to spend the break in GA. It’s my G-pa’s 92nd B-Day, and that is definitely something to celebrate. I am well aware of how precious these times are and I don’t want to miss them, and my break aligns perfectly for a family birthday party for him the weekend my break starts, so there was no question that I would find a way to get home for this.

Today, it was sunny with a high of 50, so an outside jog it was. Os and I did a mile. Between my FitBit GPS and his running app, it seems we did it in close to 11 minutes. I am never mad when I can get a sub 12 mile.

Then into the gym for strength. Legs and abs. Oso’s neck/shoulder is knotted, so we went pretty easy, core-wise. Well, not really. He taught me this ab exercise that involves keeping my legs straight and lifting them into the air, only to have him stand above me and push them back down again. Not easy by any means. It also revealed to me how truly inflexible I am. My hamstrings are going to need some TLC if I ever hope to pull that exercise off the way its intended.

Watched Big Hero 6. Hello, tears.

Now pasta with zucchini, broccoli, and mushrooms.

9 and 18!

Thanks Art :3c

9. How much time do you spend drawing on an average day?

It varies pretty widely, mostly depending on whatever freelance work I’m doing at the time! Ideally I would like to do art fulltime~ I also am bad at having a social life on the weekend and just draw all day :T

18. What are you currently trying to improve on?

Definitely want to get better at narrative! It’s something that’s been in the back of my head for a while, I really enjoy worldbuilding and character creation but do hardly any of it in my own work! I think just having characters interacting with the background is a step in the right direction for me. I tend to just draw people standing there or lookin’ fancy like models; nothing wrong with that but it doesn’t suit my goals as an artist.

I sketched this out today and hope to do some more like it in the future! Me to me: characters don’t always have to be front and center.

There’s so many other things I wanna improve at (dynamic poses, action, foreshortening, perspective, lineart) but this is sorta my current aim~

Hi! I typically eat 300-500 calories daily during the week, but on the weekend I have difficulty not over eating. I am very busy during the week but on the weekends I spend a lot of time with my husband and friends. Any advice on how to avoid eating too much in social situations or during boredom? Thanks!

Hi. I think if youre undereating all week you deserve a little indulgence on the weekends. But if you really want to cut those calories, watch out for what youre eating, its easy to eat a bite less or dont go for seconds. Dont let restricting ruin your family time! If you enjoy eating with your family go for it! Stay safe

Can you believe it’s Valentine’s Day and my birthday was exactly a week ago and I got to spend it with my love?
Can you believe it was my loves birthday 2 days ago and we spent it together?
Can you believe we just had a mini vacation together this weekend and it was super love filled?
Can you believe how in love I am!!!!!!!

Here in Wales we have a thing called "Love Spoons", My S/O isn't welsh and i'm spending the Weekend in England with her, so instead of the token chocolate and teddies i bought two love spoons and decorated them to match us as individuals, i like to give gifts with thought behind them, y'know. Just reading your post made me realise how gay i am lmao.

Oh dude, I didn’t know you were Welsh. That explains the welsh birthday greeting I got. Sorry about my comment, I didn’t realise it was Welsh. 

Damn dude, these things are cute as hell. 

I think that’s 100% the right way to give a gift and I’m so happy for you and your S/O. I’m building my S/O a EDH deck because she’s never played it before and it’s designed very much with her tastes in mind. I hope she likes it, but yeah, doing that stuff that kinda makes you realise how much you like the other person


It wasn’t often Stacey went to one of these “nerd” conventions, but hey extra credit is extra credit. Thats how she ended up in such a situation… alone… because no one wants to spend a weekend at a… thing… she didn’t even know what it was she didn’t really want to. That’s when she spotted them… fuck… 

“Holy shit those are totally the goons who beat up my brother…” 

Good thing she was there. Right in front of them. Speaking. Loud enough for people to hear. Shit. Great going Stace. 

“…How did you spend your weekend off, if you’re a person who goes to school, as not all of are…? There might be an 89 year old person in an old people’s home…”

@amazingphil had said this in his liveshow (24/7/2016) and I imagined if there is a tiny chance that that is true, what a strange and wonderful sight it must be :)

Please dont repost ‘cause i’m like jenny. literally.


What I’d give to spend the rest of MY SOULESS LIFE with THIS BEAUTIFUL WONDERFUL HEART STOPPINGLY AMAZEBALL GURL. MY BABYGIRL! WORDS CAN’T DESCRIBE HOW PROUD AND HAPPY I AM FOR YOU! YOU DID IT BABE! You made it through the storm and got to where you are. NO MATTER what happens.. I’ll always be with you with my heart. LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND THROUGH THE GALAXY.🌈🌠🌠🌠☄💗💖💋

Jensen Ackles: Taken at the “Salute to Supernatural Vancouver 2015 Convention during the “Saturday Night Special” this past weekend. I had a blast spending time with all my SPN friends!!

(I am playing around with my editing in LR, Love how this one turned out, it reminds me of all those old concert posters for some reason!)

Thanks for looking!

I need people in my life who will sit on top of a mountain with me or in a sunflower field and ask me questions that take me a minute to find answers to because I’m searching in my soul for an honest answer. I need people who dig deep because I am more than what I do for work and how I spend my weekends. I am someone who has fought every single day to stay alive to make it to where I am today. I am more than my favorite color but no one seems to care.

Valentine’s weekend coming up! ♥♡
To me it’s the time to share my love and joy to you all!+*

You are all the sunshines which brighten up my day. Thank you for being a part of my life!

 No matter how close we are, how often we’ve met, talked or if we’ve even talked or not! Even for those our life and friendship has taken different paths, you are all people who have helped me become the person I am today and I can always look and smile with fond memories.

My continuing wish is that I can return all your kindness and brings smiles with my art, photos, and whatever I do!

Have a beautiful weekend regardless of how you spend it!
Always remember there are those who are thinking about you! <3

[From.KAI] Everyone, Kai’s here.

Hello. I am EXO KAI.

Everyone, Kai has arrived.

How did you spend May’s golden long weekend?

I spent it with my family, and everyone enjoyed it too, right?

For people who possibly weren’t able to spend it well due to the holiday not being long enough or due to their lives being busy, I’ll give you a gift.

* * *

There~!! Almost half of the year 2015 already passed.

When life gets tiring and hard, I hope you’ll find strength in this holiday or these pictures~


Last week Em and I got married in this field with our friends and family. It was a magical weekend with snow capped mountains. I can’t tell you how excited I am to spend the rest of my life with this woman.

Concept: I am living in a small apartment in St. Petersburg and I rise every day with the sun, I can see the river flowing from my windows and I drink coffee every morning to the sound of the tumult of a waking city. La Vie En Rose plays in my heart as I walk the streets and ride the metro of my beloved city every day, my bookshelves are filled with the works of Russian poets, and almost every weekend I spend walking the empty halls of the Hermitage or listening to the opera in Mariinsky Theatre, I have a wonderful job and I think about how happy and at peace I am each time I walk along the riverbanks of the Neva river, all my dreams have come true because I am where I belong. 

He’s here!! I drove to Barnes and Noble on Monday, but they didn’t get copies of the book. I ordered it and they mailed me a copy. I can’t wait to read it.
I just flipped through it. Page 200 is me!! (Except, my name is not Kelly).
That is a typo error. :(
This is so awesome that my story is in Ben’s book. I submitted my story to Ben early last year and completely forgot about it until I was flipping through the pages. Wow! I am humbled.
