i edited this to make it more pretty etc

After college, once you get the first job, start looking for a better job after a year or two. Don't stay out of loyalty.

Because trust me, no company is loyal to their employees. Be respectful and professional, but loyalty in a company is rarely noticed and appreciated - unless maybe if its your dad’s company.

As a person who has worked for a same company for 6 years after graduating, i found out i didn’t get a single raise within it unless i ask for it every fucking year, never got much other benefit than initially signed while studying at school.

So i started applying for 5 months and finally got a job, it pays me almost 5 (edit: 4 is more accurate+ benefits such as health care, lunch, gym etc…) times as much as i used to. My friend from same school, with same seniority was getting 4 times my salary for the last 2 years already.

My mistake was thinking that being loyal to this company was gonna in return make the company loyal to me, the company only wants lower costs, loyalty has no place here.

Edit: wow, didn’t expect this response, also apparently this is very common in IT sector (but applies to pretty much all industry), and i am in the IT sector :/ - still feels so unfair.

Edit 2 : as some pointed out, try not to be a “job hopper”, this depends heavily on the industry you are working in though.

Edit 3: this is not a golden a rule, use your own brain, only you know your situation best - just don’t let loyalty for a company ever be the biggest priority, your career should be your priority.

Master List of Soulmate AUs

Edit: Updated 13/Aug/2017

[ALL THE LINKS HERE] <- Easier reblogging

I’ve been posting Soulmate AU Lists. Since I’ll get tired of linking every list individually on each and every post I make, and because it’s pretty disorganized, I decided to compile them all into one big list. So that means this post will constantly be edited and whatnot. (Yet somehow it’s still disorganized.)

[Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3] [Part 4] [Part 5] [Part 6] [Part 7] [Part 8] [Part 9] [More TBA]
(Full list below, these are just the posts the lists are from) 

—–START OF LIST—–

–Something Written/Drawn–

-Names on both wrist, one soulmate other enemy, can’t tell which one is which

-Each other’s initials on their wrist/palm/etc

-Each others’ first words to one another

-Each others’ last words (to one another)

-Same marking on each other’s skin

- A touch from your soulmate will leave an imprint there (like a different coloured area on your skin, or a symbol, or name)

- Ink marks (similar to tattoos) are on your body. When your soulmate is in the vicinity, it’ll slowly move, as if reaching out. When you two touch, the tattoos will connect with each other.

-Whenever you lose an item (like a sock), it ends up in your soulmates’ possession somehow

-Everyone has heterochromia, one eye is your natural colour the other is your soulmate’s natural colour. Once you meet all eyes return to natural colour. 

-Your hair colour is your soulmate’s sexuality flag (remember that there can be platonic soulmates, and that sometimes you can be soulmates with someone but they’re not soulmates with you)

- Once you meet your soulmate, you grow wings like an angel. You gain one new feather each time something special happens between you two. When your soulmate dies, you lose all your feathers and can no longer fly.

-You’re stuck in a room filled with clones (with maybe slight differences) of your soulmate. You need to kill all except your soulmate or else you won’t get out/be together.

–Experiences/Actions–

- When you meet your soulmate, time stops for a month for everyone besides you two.

-For a month, you and your soulmates have to go through different soulmate AUs each day (ooh you can use my lists for ideas *cough cough*)

-Each year at a certain age, soulmates are paired together into some sort of battle royal thing, best OTP wins

-At the corner of your eye, you can see a blurry vision of whatever your soulmate is doing (like sitting down drinking coffee in your living room, even though they’re doing this in another area)

-Soulmates can switch lives whenever they feel like it

-When you meet your soulmate for the first time, you get a flashback/relive their entire lives

-Similar to above, except you get glimpses of their future

-Before you die, you flash through your soulmate’s entire life (what they were doing before they met you, if they’ve ever lied to you, etc

-Hidden in dreams, but never interacting, is your soulmate

-A certain time frame began to loop, and the only way for it to stop is to find your soulmate

- You will keep looping your life until you meet your soulmate.

- Legend says that if you fold 1000 paper (Cranes? Planes? Rabbits? Anything really) You can meet your soulmate.

- Everyday, you have the chance to spin a wheel that will determine an event your soul mate will face. (Some people may avoid it for bad luck, others may spin it for the slim chance of your soulmate getting a cure for their illness or something)

-There’s this special video game where your partner is your soulmate. You only get to meet if the two of you finish the game.

-At the age of sixteen, everyone goes into another world for two years, hanging out with their soulmate. Time is warped to make sure the two of you are sixteen in this world. When the two years are up, you’re sent back into the real world, with fractured memories of what happened. These foggy memories make it hard to find them again. (Numbers can be changed.) 

- The first time you touch your soulmate, you’re forced to relive their best day and/or worst day of their lives (past or future).

- Human beings die on their 25th birthday (or any number). To prevent this, they have to meet their soulmate. But only one of them can survive.

- If you haven’t met your soulmate but have been in the same vicinity of each other (like passing each other on a street or in the same building), that day will keep repeating until you find each other.

- Once you meet your soulmate you’re literally stuck to each other for the rest of the day.

–Compasses–

- A red string tied around your pinky is connected to your soulmate’s pinky (when the two of you are in a certain distance)

- You can only see the string of fate when you close your eyes.

-Temperature gets hotter the nearer they are, colder when they are further away

-If you send off a paper airplane, it shall reach (or move in the direction of) your soulmate.

- Counter of how many footsteps away you are from your soulmate

- Your soulmate leaves coloured footprints only visible to you

- Throwing something you love on the full moon will land on your soul mate

-You can feel a tug from wherever your soulmate is. These may either be automatic, or have stronger tugs whenever your soulmate is in distress.

- Each soulmate pair has a constellation, and the constellation that you perceive to be the brightest is pointing towards where your soulmate is.

–Hints–

-You get a photograph of your soulmate and vice versa, somehow (Could be yearly, could be at a certain age, could be a photo of when you first met, etc)

-The voice in your head (example: your conscious) is your soulmate’s voice (by that I meant that they have the same voice, not that’s it’s your soulmate’s personality in your head– y’know, take it as you will)

- Every year, you receive a puzzle piece. The whole picture is your soulmate’s name/appearance/location/etc.

-Mysterious letter detailing to one person when they’ll meet, and another letter detailing where they’ll meet to their soulmate, but not both (Person A gets when they’ll meet, Person B gets where they’ll meet)

-Letter about details of how the meeting between soulmates go (example: “you get pushed into a lake by a guy in a duck suit and your soulmate helps you”, etc)

-Bubbles gives you a blurry glimpse into your soulmate’s world (visions of possessions, friends, family, laughter, crying, etc)

- Everyone holds a locket with their soulmate’s picture, but it can only open when certain conditions are met

- Instead of removing flower petals for “loves me, loves me not” the flower petals dictate whether you’ll meet in this lifetime (“meet me, meet me not”) and it’s forever accurate.

- Everyone has memories of their soulmate in their past life.

- Everyone receives a picture of their soulmate (at a certain age) taken the year they met.

- You get to meet the parents of your children’s soulmates.

- You dream of the place of where you’ll meet your soulmate.

- The first picture you and your soulmate are in will be sent to you on a birthday (which can be tricky if it was, for example, a class photo. Or a newspaper picture of a crowd).

–Your Soulmate–

-If you and your soulmate possess the same item, it’ll glow

-Everyone has a special pen/marker/drawing utensil. Using it, the lines are thicker when their soulmates feel strong emotions, thinner when they’re feeling weak, run out of ink when they die, etc.

-There’s this special block of clay that represents your soulmate. It has a special colour and changes forms depending on how your soulmate is feeling.

- There’s an object that changes colour depending on what mood your soulmate is in

-Reflecting in the mirrors is the appearance of your soulmate

-Plant that represents the soulmate

-Receive piece of cloth with soulmate’s scent

-Everyone gets a list of their soulmate’ worst qualities

-Everyone is born knowing their soulmate’s (future) biggest secret

-List detailing the differences between you and your soulmate

- You can sense when your soulmate is in distress

-Whenever you have a question, your soul mate has the answer.

-Once you’re an adult, you get kicked out of the house until you find your soulmate.

-Everyone gets little books of what people think about their soulmate (but never said out loud)

- Everyone has a device to check if the other person is their soulmate (like a light that’s red when it’s not and green when it is). It gets brighter when they’re full of life, dimmer when they get sick, and out of batteries when they’re dead.

- Literal sparks fly when you’re near your soulmate, soothing for the two of you but static shock for others.

- Your level of talent at a hobby is determined by how close you are with your soulmate.

- The outline of your shadow is your soulmate.

- You meet your soulmate the day after the worst event of your life.

- Everyone somehow owns a creature who possesses the same (general) personality as your soulmate.

—–END OF LIST—–

Okay yeah my organization skills kinda stink, but I did my best. And hey, categories! You can ask me for more of a specific category if you’d like and if I can, I’ll think up some more for that specific category. (I also know that some AUs fit in multiple categories but blergh…)

Enjoy! You can use any of these without permission, half of these aren’t mine anyway (but if you do tell me you’ll use one I’ll be giddy that you read this and it’ll make my day, I swear). Happy writing! :D

anonymous asked:

If you wanted to make edits as a beginner, how would you start?

i. get familiar with the program you’re using. whether it’s photoshop, gimp, pixlr (I used this before I got ps, and it’s pretty good), or any other program. make a canvas, then, one by one, use the tools that are in it. paint, smudge, the different shapes of brushes, etc. I know photoshop has a lot of tools, so it can get overwhelming not knowing exactly what can be done.

ii. look at tutorials. @yeahps and @itsphotoshop are blogs that provide/reblog resources. here is a page that lists a bunch of tutorials + there’s more on their blogs. 
I’ve made three tutorials: character posters. checkbox. applying a doodle gif
moodboard tutorial by @lilyevane
here are some more tutorials. 

iii. have the correct dimensions for the canvas. that’s really, really important because if it’s too small, tumblr will make your image blurry. here is a link that can help you out. also (idk if anyone else does this oops) I sometimes save someone else’s photo from their edit to see what dimensions they’ve used - bc when you’ve saved it, your computer will tell you details of the image. but!! delete the edit afterwards ofc!! you can always do that on my edits btw if you intend on only look at the dimensions!

iv. if you’re looking for movie screencaps, you can google “______ hd screencaps” and a link should come up! 

if you’re looking for aesthetic photos, use pinterest. if you’re not familiar with it, you have to make an account (it’s free) and you can scroll through pictures and add similar photos to groups (called ‘boards’). an example would be finding a bunch of pics that fit hermione, and calling the board ‘hermione granger’ or whatever. here is my pinterest for your reference! tip: add the word “aesthetic” with whatever you’re seaching, like “hermione granger aesthetic”. this will help quality photos to come up for your use! 

a note: looking for good pictures is probably the most time consuming part. don’t worry if you’ve already spent an hour looking around, because it’s normal. to help out, listen to music! time passes by easier that way, and it’s not as frustrating!

v. have an idea of what you want to make. it doesn’t have to be super fancy. but knowing what you’re planning on making helps a lot! you can also look at other people’s edit and get inspiration from them! but, please, credit them! you’ve probably seen “insp” in captions that are linked, right? people do it all the time, so it’s fine, but please give credit!! 

vi. tag your post! all fandoms (except the ones that are barely known) have edit tags, like #hp/edit, #soc/edit, #mcu/edit (without the /). also tag any people you follow/mutuals. I track #meraudurs if you’d like to tag me! have these tags before any comments you’re making in the tags! if you’re talking in the tags and it gets long, your edit might not appear in the edit tags bc they’ll be too far down.

vii. not all your creations will get lots of notes. it’s like that for everyone, even me. some will flop, some will blow up your activity. I know notes do play a big factor in wanting to make another edit or not, but keep making stuff. you’ll get practice and improve. make the edit because of your love for the topic, not for the notes.

I really hoped this helped you out!! if you’d like any specific info on anything, let me know!! x

so it’s been a minute since i last worked on this challenge, i was feeling pretty uninspired by this theme because i had this idea that i wanted to make perfect but i had such a hard time coming up with the sim i wanted. anyway, since i’m basic af i took most of my inspiration from the great gatsby, she’s very loosely based off of daisy buchanan (makeup etc), and i think she’s gorgeous and she’s going to be one of the models imma use more often!

anonymous asked:

hi hello i was just wondering what you use to blur/focus on specific parts of photos in the sims?? thanks in advance b y e

I use two methods! The first one is the Blur Tool. It’s a brush you can find in the sidebar where all your tools are, it’s this one:

I usually use the Blur Tool for my gameplay screenshots, because it’s quick to use and gives you a soft blur for the background to give the photo a little bit more depth.

For edits I generally use Gaussian Blur. What I do is copy the layer I want to blur, and blur that layer completely using Gaussian Blur. Settings you should set to your liking. After that, I press Layer Mask and start to colour the parts I don’t want blurred with black.

When you press Layer Mask, a little white box appears next to your picture. Make sure you have that selected, because then your brush changes to two options: Black and white. Black means it removes the effect, white means it adds back the effect. You colour the parts you don’t want blurred (important bits such as faces, or objects etc) with black and leave the rest white. Make sure to use different opacities of brushes (for example, colour the face with 80% black, but the further you get away from the face, the lower you should make your opacity so it’s a smooth blur). After I’m done I merge my layers and if I see I missed a spot I manually blur it a bit more with the Blur Tool. So yeaaah that’s it I think!

So, I managed to reach 1k followers earlier this week which is crazy. I feel overwhelmed, incredibly thankful and grateful to all of you. It’s incredible and I love you all so much even if we might not talk. Since I’ve never celebrated any followers goal, I’d thought I’d go big and do a bunch of things because why not. Also, big thanks to Ty @softpatil for the blograte template.

Here’s part 2 of my 1.6k followers celebration!

Editing dark scenes can be difficult, especially when working with PoC, as you don’t want to wash them out. In this tutorial I will be showing you how to brighten/lighten scenes without making them look out of place

Make your gif, sharpen it and crop it to how you like - the hardest part is over! Mine is of Storm from X-Men

Make a new group (this is just my preference, I like to see how much the gif has changed from my starting point)

Make a levels layer - don’t change any of the settings

Change the blend mode for the levels layer to screen

my gif has already brightened up pretty well while retaining colour

This still may not be enough so duplicate the layer and mess around with the opacity, I duplicated mine and set it to 60% opacity

Now make a vibrance layer (or don’t if you’re going for a more desaturated look)

I prefer not to use curves that much but I do when it comes to darker scenes

Make a brightness/contrast layer, I put my settings to +10 brightness and -20 contrast

I’m pretty happy with how my gif looks now, but you may want to make your own changes: adding a photo filter, changing colour balance, making a gradient map, etc.

*this also works for editing screencaps or photoshoots too

Fun Celebration!

OKAY okay, so!

I’ve been thinking of tiny ways to celebrate you guys and one thing I’ve seen going around (specifically over on @reidbyers blog) where people are making cover photos/aesthetics for stories or other writers. I love doing little edits, so to celebrate my followers, that’s what I want to do!

Here’s what you need to do if you want one:

  • Reblog this post (this is my personal preference, it’ll be easier to keep track of who I’ve done). 
  • Tag me or send me a fic/one-shot you’d like a cover/aesthetic for. 
  • Give me examples of what you want (a specific color pallet, a certain phrase, whether or not you want the title on there somewhere, etc. I can give more examples if you need it).

That’s pretty much it! This is just something fun I want to do since I reached my next milestone. Think of this as a thank you!

To give you a taste of what you’ll get should you decide you want one, here is a couple of mine for my own stories:

These are just examples, I can make it however you’d like!  If you think mine are just total shit and rather see someone else do it, head over to Jen’s blog and look at this post for a probably much better option than mine, but I have fun making these and would really like to help anyone who wants it out!

NEW VIDEO NEED YOUR HELP

hey guys so as a lot of you know I make youtube videos however they don’t really get anywhere which I’m pretty okay with as it’s more of a hobby and I literally make no money through editing on any platform I have however it would be nice to get feedback on how to improve etc as this really is something I’d like to go into. Also this is the first video which isn’t available on mobile and I’m super worried that means no ones gonna see it and honestly I believe this could be the best one yet. thank you all so much for following my blog and watching my videos it genuinely means the world to me.
