i don't actually have talents so

how I see the signs and what I want them to know
  • (side note - View of a Virgo rising, Leo sun in the 12th, Libra moon in 2nd, mercury Cancer in 11th, venus Leo in 12th, mars Leo in 11th)
  • Aries: was once my best friend, she made literally everything in my life brighter and always helped me to just enjoy things and stop worrying all the time. Also great hugs. Just simply has that energy, wherever it may be - physically, mentally, staying up until you binge watched that show, giving you their last money so you can get yourself something to eat before you starve to death, always down for a talk and a walk even if they had a packed schedule. Please don't miss out on times when you just have to take a day off to get your beautiful and strong energy back. I care about your health so please don't forget to eat properly and don't miss out on that quality time if needed.
  • Taurus: a girl from my drama class and my little sisters moon sign, I am just so in love with your sense for aesthetic. Total sunshines. I feel like I can always rely on you, super compassionate and knows how to make you feel comfortable when youre not. I love that when you have a goal in your mind, you will give your everything to achieve that! Also so humble but like I want you so desperately to know how beautiful I think you are!! I enjoy your company a lot. Please don't be afraid of changes, I know that's such a mainstream thing to write for Taurus but I really do believe that maybe sometimes you need to be reminded that life can also begin at the end of your comfort zone.
  • Gemini: a guy and a girl from biology class, I am literally stunned at how much these people know. Eloquent fluffballs. I could listen to you spreading knowledge 24/7, make great jokes in my opinion and just kind of knows... everyone?? Get along with so many people, can be very chill but also full of energy when they're talking about things they are interested in. Also fun-fact kings and queens. Please remind yourself to stay loyal to your true friends, you may know many people with whom you get along with so well and for sure everyone is intersting in their own way, but it's very possible to feel lonely in a crowd. Your closest friends will always get you out of that and help you, I promise.
  • Cancer: a close friend of mine, literally the most caring person I've ever met. Actual comedians. I don't know I just straight up fell in love with your humour. All the Cancers I know have or had some extreme physical problems going on, please get well soon if you read this and you're also not feeling well. Mentally on the next level, strong and kind of unbreakable. Don't hide their feelings because they just know that when you bottle up your feelings it's never going to end well. They just get you and will be there for you no matter what. Please take care of yourself just as well as you do with your friends and family, you are a true blessing and it's definitely okay to rant or cry or just let it all out.
  • Leo: my english teacher and a guy I used to be close with, very often completely misunderstood and taken for granted, which can lead to unhealthy behaviour. Will make you feel great after a plain shit day. I strive to be this talented at just expressing myself or being confident, even if you just want the world to think you are confident when you're actually not. Cuddly queens and kings. Better not hurt their pride because it took them a lot of time to actually get to that level and in a world where people hate on you for loving yourself, to them it feels like, despite all their work, they are not worth of loving themselves. Please don't forget that although sometimes it's hard to look in the mirror and like what you see, there are caring and warm-hearted people who love you just the way you are.
  • Virgo: a girl in my class I simply adore, I always annoy you with my endless compliments. Kind of just in love with these down-to-earth and sweet people. Either super chill or worried a lot, I wish I could just hug you until you feel less stressed. Smol but strong beans you can learn a lot from. So reliable, I actually hate doing group projects and always want to do everything myself but since you share that opinion we created something I was really proud of and now we always do them together. Please remember that passion is something you shouldn't be ashamed of, you simply don't have to be because it's something you love and your needs are valid. Also dreaming big, it's possible, especially for you so why not?
  • Libra: a girl I recently got to know and am already completely amazed by, literal social butterflies who sometimes only know in hindsight how much they enjoyed the company of someone because they adapt so easily and it's rare to find someone where you can just simply be yourself. Love how they view life and that they make me want to talk more. Very open and you never feel excluded because they just know how to include everyone. Please don't forget to remind yourself who you truly are and not to lose yourself in another person, because there really is only one you no matter how good you are at adapting to literally every social situation, you are amazing and I want you to be comfortable as well.
  • Scorpio: my dad and my ex boyfriend's mom, two very caring peole in their own way. I always love how sharp their sarcasm can be. Can comfort extremely well when they want to. So many secrets and things to know about them that I can lose myself in them wanting to explore whats actually behind their shell. Teaches you life lessons. Please don't forget that humans aren't flawless and that's completely okay. You don't have to hold onto old grudges, communication is key and talking about these things, confronting these people who did you wrong will help you grow as a person.
  • Sagittarius: an old friend of mine, very cute people who get interested in so many things and they are so versatile and adventurous I absolutely love their lively nature. Memes™. Total dorks you can fall for in a second. Are actually the best partners to just talk to about anything because they will be interested and share their opinion with you. Please remind yourself that cutting off people can be a very wise decision and you don't have to keep up with everyones shit if that's just not what you're in for.
  • Capricorn: I am literally so attracted to these people it's unreal, although I kind of always think that they don't like me...... anyways, my bigger twin sisters are caps and they are humble souls who really had to fight for a lot in life sadly. So proud of you. Keep up with the hard work, you really deserve everything. So realistic and pure I have heart eyes. Supportive and extremely loyal. Will stand up for you if you need it. Straight face™ but still manages to make even the most serious people laugh. Please remind yourself to not overdo it with the work, take a day off to relax and let yourself go maybe, even if it's hard - with the right people you don't ever have to be afraid of being yourself.
  • Aquarius: my ex boyfriend whom I had a crush on for like 4 years, teached me great life lessons. Will always have a weakness for aquas, they just attract me so much, how much of a fluffy dork can you be tbh? Capacity of acceptance is incredible. So much fun to be with. Are kind of just good at everything? You can talk to them about anything, it won't feel weird, they won't question it and just talk to you about that topic. So friendly, an underrated trait in my opinion, just complete and simple friendliness you enjoy to the fullest. Please remind yourself to let people not only see your amazing shell but also your stunning core, there are people who love to talk about the same things you love and nothing about you is weird, you are special and I absolutely love it.
  • Pisces: a very sweet guy I've been texting with for the past months, very open minded and also have that sensitivity I strive to have. Very inspirational smol puppy. Actual daydreamers™, may be late to school but love deeply and would never neglect your love. Kind of hate almost everything that's planned out? (I'm sorry I just love to plan things out) will hug you no matter what. Does not fear to dream big, is very talented at artsy stuff in my opinion. Please don't forget that even if it seems hard, and yes our school system is kind of very bad,we get to have that education and your dreams will be reality if you work hard enough to achieve them. You have so much potential, please don't ever waste it.

anonymous asked:

Hi, I don't mean to bother you when you're studying, so please ignore this until you're free, but would you mind doing the RFA characters reactions to MC being skilled at knife throwing? Thank you in advance, and thanks for this blog.

No problem dear! I don’t even know what was going on at this point when you sent thins to me honestly. Maybe exams? 

Your welcome! 

Yoosung:

  • He’s so intimidated but that’s also one of the single coolest talents a person can have 
  • Desperately asks them to teach him how
  • He actually turns out to be pretty good at it. 
  • They both probably end up bragging to Seven 

Jaehee:

  • She finds it really interesting and unique
  • She’d love if they showed her, but she also can’t help but get a little concerned for their well being because knives are sharp, but then again, she knows that they’re talented at this. They know what they’re doing
  • She will brag about their talent so much
  • She’d refuse to try herself but would completely admire them for that skill

Zen: 

  • He’s so intrigued, but also again knives are sharp
  • He’s so protective because he doesn’t want them to get hurt
  • It’s funny because if anything he’d be the one to get hurt (he really does seem to get himself hurt pretty easily)

Jumin:

  • He is highly concerned 
  • He’s glad that you know how to handle the knives and stuff and like, technically self defense which is always nice but also like, he’s kind of frightened
  • When you ask him if he wants to try he ends up being shockingly good 
  • It frightens most of the RFA honestly
  • Don’t let him try, it’s really scary

Seven:

  • He’s actually barely concerned
  • He trusts you to know how to take care of yourself
  • Definitely asks to try
  • Do. Not. Give. Him. A. Knife.
  • It’s a really, really bad decision 
  • Don’t keep them anywhere Seven can find them. 
LOVE

so it’s interesting to me that we were all brought here by love. and yet, sometimes our fandom is just the opposite of that. judgmental, hurtful, mean, rude, etc. it has been nice to come back tonight and see all of these lovely messages of love on my dash. 

there’s a reason i’ve never done a follow forever or when i’ve gotten anons asking for a list of other blogs to follow, i’ve said no. i’ve been left out of things before, lots of times in fact, and it always sucks. i’d never want to be the cause of that for someone else. i’m going to try very, very hard here with my list of love.

the stay salty ladies. @alarrylarrie @louandhazaf @theonewiththebluemic @justafatbirdonaboat @fratboylouie @unintentionalarry amanda, nic, lu, katie, julia, ashlee. you guys are so great and i’m so lucky to have made friends with such lovely people. like nic said, the round robin of positivity is amazing. when one of us is down, another one is up, and we help each other through. and not just fandom stuff. you guys have made a huge difference for me, encouraging me to start writing and keep it up, but also other stuff. you know what i’m talking about. i’ve loved getting to know you guys and your families.

the fic chat. all of y’all… i feel like i totally failed you guys with the chat, but we’ve done alright, maybe? i think the best part of the fic club is the friendships that have been made there. i….. don’t want to tag everyone, because that’s really a lot of people to tag lol i’m going to tag a few of you though and hope that everyone sees this post! @loubeesarmy @beccasafan @happilylouie @vintage1der @justapayneaway @mydnytkiss  @harrysdandelion @melmanpur @moonblessd@choncetaking @millionlittletings @captiveharts @lifestyleofpj 

to the rose and dagger chat @nottooldforthisship @loveisalaserquest17 @melmanpur @allwaswell16 @doctorrainbows @tomlinshawpie @letsjustsee @softhie @assisreal @eachothershappyending @waytoomanypeopleintheaddisonlee i feel like i’ve forgotten someone… anyway, some of you i already talked to somewhat regularly, and i’m looking forward to getting to know the rest of you. i love that our no drama chat has turned into chat of cheese and cats and axes and idek what else. 

some other people @gettingaphdinlarry i don’t know you well, but i like what i know. you’re an awesome beta and super smart. 

@phd-mama getting to know you a little at a time. love your writing, but also that you are an hp freak like me. 

@nottooldforthisship i know i tagged you already, but i love ya. you’re awesome. what you do for the fandom with fic recs is amazing, but also what you do with supporting and encouraging writers is a big thing. i love it.

  @someonethatsfunny i don’t know you well, but i like you. you’re always super sweet when we chat <3 

@softlouiswarmharry you are always so nice about my fics. messaging me when you’ve read them and i just love getting feedback from you. 

@xabjectlessonsx phoenix you’re super super lovely, talented in many facets, and you love dolly parton and cher. enough said. i can’t wait to get my tattoo and send you pics! 

@mllesouthernbelle you called me your fairy larry god mom. i love it. love you!

@muchbetterjulia where are you even? i’m wondering about your hair. let me know. 

@annie-pie we tend to agree on so many random things and i love that i can message you and scream about things that will not be named. 

@waytoomanypeopleintheaddisonlee kk with our similar blacklists i feel connected to you lol sometimes i look at my dash and know that yours is the same, all little boxes that say “blacklisted because” 

@catp i connect with so many random things that you post. haven’t known you long, but still. LOVE.

@lucystarkid i love you! love your writing and all of the love you put into this fandom!

gdi @twopoppies i forgot you! i love you gina! you’re so talented and so sweet <3

last, but not least, i’m going to come back around and send more love to nic @louandhazaf because i love you extra.

okay that was actually really tiring because i’m sitting here completely paranoid that i’m forgetting someone. 

JUST IN CASE I’VE FORGOTTEN YOU, HAVE SOME EXTRA LOVE!

sagelylegs  asked:

In light of Amy Schumer still being considered a thing against all conventional wisdom, I've decided to go around and remind people of a far more charismatic comedian: Rita Rudner. Even for those that don't find her material funny, she just comes off as too nice to actually hate, so she at least earns some sympathy laughter.

Ah!  I love Rita Rudner!  She was one of the comediennes that inspired me growing up.  I used to watch her on Comedy Central, back when the network wasn’t total garbage (I miss those days).  It almost seems these days that people forget that female stand-ups have been around for decades, and that there are many established comediennes in the business that are being overlooked in favor of no-talent hacks like Schumer.

There are a lot of funny ladies out there that have never needed to be forcefully gross for attention, nor needed to try to appeal to extremists in a pretend gender war.  They got by on actual talent, and never needed anyone to fluff them up with ridiculous articles about the first time they wore red lipstick.

Amy Schumer is a slimy tick bloated on fake, pumped-up media hype that’s being forced on the public as some sort of gift to both comedy and female representation. 

Go watch Rita Rudner instead.

HI so i'm reading call me beep me and i got to the part of the Selfies Exchange and i can't see keith's selfie although i'm not sure if there was supposed to be one in the first place (also searched through your tumblr (you're so talented i'm crying) and did not find it or lance's) but i if i don't see it i think i might actually combust so pls if you could answer this it would be great (i am so sorry to bother you i just have too many feeling rn)

Oh my gosh! I can't believe I just found your blog because I've admired your art for ages!! It is so flipping great that I can't take it! I'm really sorry for seeming super lame with all of the exclamation points, but I'm really excited that I finally actually found your blog. I hope that you have a wonderful day you talented person.

thank you!! there’s nothing lame about shout poles, i’m glad you found my blog and liked it! here is a christine for you!

i’m away without my laptop tonight but i’ve been thinking about the spinoff au of my twin au where it’s all about nino/felix

nino’s the only person in paris to spot that there are two chat noirs (bridgette isn’t separate from marinette in this au so there’s just one ladybug), and while avidly trying to interview the second cat which the media can never catch he ends up totally getting the hots for him and landing a serious smooch

the resulting problems are a) felix doesn’t know how to process this Disgusting Emotion especially when he sees nino at school every day, b) nino hates felix and only tolerates him because of adrien, so if he finds out who the cute mystery superhero truly is he’s going to flip out, and c) felix might actually be developing a VERY inconvenient crush

So I would just like y'all to know that I just spent the last two hours watching The Phantom of the Opera and had to hold back from (attempting to) sing along, because husband is playing with his millison I wouldn’t want to break anyone’s ear drums 😂😂
So I go to find a new movie, think ohhh I could watch Hercules!! Than go… nooooo cause I have to sing along to that as well… my list went a little like this
Deadpool? “Nope gotta sing along.”
How the Grinch Stole Christmas? “Nope "You’re a mean one Mr. Grinch”
Mulan?! “I’LL MAKE A MAN OUT OF YOU… so that’s a no…”
Kurt Cobain documentary? “Smells liiiiike Teen Spirit… fuck.”
Coyote Ugly? “Alllllll She Wants To Do Is just DANCE, DANCE, DANCE… damn it.”
Hairspray!? “Hahaha… I will sing at the top of my lungs to the movie…”
Pocahontas!! “JUST AROUND THE RIVER BEND!!”
I would just like to point out I was doing this out loud, my husband was cracking up…
It took me almost 45 mins to pick out something else to watch that does not require me to suppress the urge to sing along.. clearly I need more movie choices without music… I’m pretty sure at this point my husband is over being married to my ridiculous ass, thank god he puts up with me.

  • A is at an art museum, douchily explaining the ‘hidden meaning’ of a painting to an increasingly growing crowd. B clears their throat after a particularly personal insight into the artist’s life and says, “sorry, but not really?? At all??” (Bonus points if A is drunk and has no idea what they’re doing)
  • A owns a flower shop and one day B just kinda stumbles in, looking for the coffee shop that used to be there like three years ago. B buys a flower anyway, and comes back the next day and the next. A learns that B is a rather reclusive writer in between visits, and that he’s been stuck in a particularly nasty slump of writer’s block. Two weeks later, B bursts into the shop with the sudden realization that A is the one who’s been getting rid of his writer’s block, not the flowers.

Hi! I'm an italian student (sorry if my english is not good enough) and I'm 16. I often think about my future and I feel that I would love to be an astrophysic. I've read a few of book about the general relativity, the dark matter and the evolution of physic. The problem is that I'm not exactly good in math and so in resolution of physic problems - and that is a big problem. I don't know what to do. Can you give me an advice?

Hello! :)

Most people underestimate themselves
If you know what is 5+3 than you have a potencial! :)
The only thing you really need for studying such field is a will to invest your personal time into studying…You will learn everything in time if you´ll work for it. 
You must not get discouraged by abilities and talents of other students who will study astrophysics with you. Actually it should motivate you to make better results! Do not get discouraged!

Hello my favorite most talented master 🌸💜

Good morning (it’s almost 3am over here 😉 lol) to you, too, my incredibly talented and so so inspiring friend. 💗✨ I hope your day is filled with positive vibes, lots of sunshine and you have a reason to smile today c: more than one… actually. anyway i’m sending you a big ghost hug over! 🌸

anonymous asked:

Hi there. Juliette, you're my favorite artist ever and I especially love your Star Wars work. But I was wondering if I could request a little lady Mikkian. A Star Wars species... Don't know if you heard about them... I'm really sorry to ask and of course you don't have the time to do such silly thing... But anyway, I love your art and you're so talented... Thank you for your beautiful art...

Hi there ! I actually made some mikkian doodles when I was exploring sith ladies, here’s a few for you anon :D I wanted to try it out because i was pretty much obsessed with those concepts by Ian McCaig for Phantom Menace (not mikkian per se, but the species were based on those designs I believe)

the signs in a school band
  • aries: auditions as a joke but gets in somehow because they're actually talented. doesn't take it too seriously at first but the more they participate in events, the more passionate they get about it and once they're pa
  • taurus: barely shows up for practice most days but never gets kicked out of the band bc they're too important. hardly contributes most of the time but suddenly gets motivated the week before an important event and works super hard for it
  • gemini: always thinking of new ideas and ways in which to improve a performance. do a lot of stuff for the band because they're passionate about it, not because they feel forced to.
  • cancer: super sincere and multitalented. people don't get to see their talent often because they don't get a chance to speak most of the time. everyone appreciates them and loves them tho because of how cool they are
  • leo: do their best when you allow them to shine and do their own thing. kind of meant to be in the spotlight, not only because of their talent but also this incredible aura they have
  • virgo: plays multiple instruments usually. never half-asses anything, always does the best they can do no matter what they're doing. not always confident in what they do bc they always doubt themselves a little, but they're actually great at everything
  • libra: initially join because they're bored, they need to do some activity to pass school or they just wanna do something fun, but end up actually enjoying what they're doing. realize that they're actually super talented and end up unintentionally stealing the spotlight
  • scorpio: super intense and passionate. the secret weapon during competitions bc they're always ready to face a challenge and never back down. lowkey don't like going on stage but don't mind bc they also lowkey know they're amazing and everyone's gonna love them
  • sagittarius: organizes all major events and plans ahead, always has great ideas. incredibly talented but doesn't show it off much. frequently offers words of encouragement and moral support to get shit done
  • capricorn: when they're not participating in discussions and practice, they're thinking. super grounded and sincere about the band. not always a team worker, so they can usually be distant and reluctant to help but they're ready to work hard to do whatever they need to. obviously talented and is somehow continuously improving
  • aquarius: like taurus, barely shows up but is somehow always great. they don't like conforming to strict rules and want to experiment, so they're super chill and enjoy trying out new ways of performing
  • pisces: everyone knows they're talented but no one even knows how truly brilliant they are. they're underrated as heck even tho they're always doing a lot of shit for everybody else. the actual secret weapon tbh

HEY! I love your analyses! So, I've been thinking about the twins lately.... Everyone seems to think that they are really dumb and stupid, but they've actually shown some signs of intelligence! I think that they just don't care or pay attention to anything... Plus, do you think that they could be under the influence of some kind of substance? Especially Tuffnut, I think he looks "stoned" all the time! It's the only way I can explain their behavior. What do you think?

Thanks so much! :) And dude… you bring up quite an really interesting thought. I could totally go with it.

I, too, totally believe that the twins aren’t idiots. They have quite a lot of aptitude for intelligence: their vocabulary is actually impressive; they demonstrate unique talents like needlework, poetry, and literary analysis; and they successfully execute many plans they contrive. The twins seem to be lazy and disinterested in Dragon Academy matters moreso than stupid. I talk a bit about my interpretation of their behavior and how it affects perceptions of their actually decent intelligence here, but I want to talk about it even more. I have a long analysis outlined for talking about the twins’ intelligence, but I haven’t gotten to finishing it quite yet. I want to answer everything in my askbox first. :)

I had not considered before that the twins maybe being influenced by some sort of substance. The more I think about it, the more I could agree with that sort of headcanon. These twins are risktakers who find great enjoyment in extreme experiences. Having a little bit too much dragon nip or mushrooms might be something down their alley. I don’t think it’s necessary to explain their behavior, but I certainly agree it could be in character… frankly it’s really easy for me to see, especially for Tuffnut Thorston.

For have you seen the size of Tuffnut’s pupils in Race to the Edge? I bet you have, being as you say yourself Tuffnut always looks stoned! His eyes are hugely dilated even in bright conditions. He almost always keeps his eyes droopy and half-lidded… and then the pupils are just so wide. Now I know part of that is the animators are not going into these details for a television series, but it does seem like his eyes are wider than anyone else’s. Even though Astrid and Hiccup have very wide pupils, too, they’ve got nothing on Tuffnut.

Check it out.

Hmmm….

There’s a difference.

More pictures for more comparisons:

Astrid

Fishlegs

Hiccup

Ruffnut

Snotlout

And now Tuffnut.

See the difference? His pupils are the widest proportionally in his irises by far.

This kid could be on something. He could definitely be stoned at various points of time… or lots of the time, who’s to say? Ruffnut’s eyes don’t seem dilated quite like his, but Tuffnut’s eyes are definitely unique. Completely and utterly adorable, but unique in their dilation.

It would also explain a lot when people don’t believe his claims of seeing things, such as happens in the fourth Race to the Edge episode, “When Darkness Falls.”

So yeah. I could go for an idea like that. I don’t think it’s necessary - I think Ruffnut and Tuffnut just having bizarre personalities and disinterest in Hiccup’s ideas suffices to explain their personality quirks - but I don’t think an idea like this hurts at all, either! If anything, you’re right: it could help explain a few things.
