So as you know, I had the pleasure of meeting with Anjali Bhimani (voice actress of Symmetra) who asked me to be part of her IAmFunSize series. As someone who is..basically the same height as her, I was obligated to of course.
Me being notoriously inarticulate, I’d like to expand on my points from my video since I’m better expressing myself in text rather than speech. So read more below if you want to hear my thoughts on creative-block and being an artist.
Why isn’t there a sarcasm font? Can we elect a font for sarcasm? Because I’m hardly ever serious but seeing some of my reblogs I kind of feel like a huge negative asshole but really 90% of the stuff I put on here is a joke? Also I’m really dry humored?
I’m casting my vote for comic sans as the sarcasm font ‘cause it’s like the Dane Cook of fonts.
Anonymous said: could you do a JC imagine where he goes out for tattoo roulette and comes back to show y/n (his gf) that he had to get her name in LARGE LETTERS across his thigh.EVeryone is recording her, but You can choose her reaction
Trying out ‘Rudeboy 7A’ back in font, some really dirty slopers on here and that last move with a pop makes the whole line pretty nutty.
Taking a bit of a break from climbing and photography as it felt like it was becoming a chore. I always wanted OpenCrag to be a more social thing but it just turned into my story of climbing with the people I love which is great. But when it starts to feel forced to upload because of how social media works it removes a lot of my drive for self improvement, I find myself taking the easy way out and that a big no no for me.
Sorry if you've been asked this before would any of the nordics get a tattoo if so what would it be if?
Okay but Denmark and Finland with tattoos is yes
The other three I don’t see having them. Sweden is too traditional, Iceland is scared of needles and Norway feels that they’re too expensive to get and keep up with
I don’t know exactly what tats Denmark would have but I like him with double sleeves. He would definitely have Ice and Nor’s names in pretty font somewhere around there. Maybe even a big pretty tattoo across his shoulder blades!
And Finland… definitely a gun somewhere on his body, maybe like the rifle Simo Hayha used! I like the idea of a bear tattoo as well. He probs doesn’t do a lot of tattoos but his motto is go big or go home
It has occurred to me that many blogs -and especially more and more rp blogs- prefers to use smaller fonts when they write and post here on tumblr. Although I’m all for personal freedom of choice and like to encourage people to do their thing- I have to confess that all these long posts with more than three sentences with tiny-ant text gives me a headache.
It makes it difficult for me to read what people has wrote, especially for me who already have a bad eyesight to start with, and I find myself many times skipping over all the posts with whole sentences containing small fonts. And -perhaps unfairly - this sometimes affect my decision however I decide to follow a blog or not, because if I can’t read anything of theirs without zooming in multiple times… I kind of don’t get any information of how and who they’re.
I know this all looks like me ranting about small fonts here, BUT, I’m okay with people using them -bc everyone decides how they want their blogs and text posts to look like (and yes, those small texts looks neat). I just want to offer an explanation to how I feel and think about this. I’m not saying anyone should stop using small text and/or no dots and big letters at the start of sentences.
But, I would wish that if you interact with me (like replying to a thread we have together) that you could use normal text size. Thank you.
reasons everyone should start a positivity blog of their own:
the more people who speak words of love and support and encouragement, the louder the message and the stronger the impact it has. the more love there is, the harder it is to hear voices filled with nothing but negativity and hate.
keeping a positivity blog active requires following other positivity blogs and tracking positivity tags to reblog content from. creating new content requires you to constantly think of others and what may be going on in their lives that they need support for, it requires you to constantly ask yourself who isn’t getting enough love and who may be getting unnecessary amounts of negativity and figuring out what to say in order to combat that negativity. you are, in the process of helping others, also helping yourself because you’re basically required to surround yourself with good things in order to keep your blog active. that goodness not only affects your followers but also yourself by being so tuned in to it.
you get to see in real-time that you have a positive impact on the world. every “i really needed this!!” or “i feel so loved!” tag on a post you made, every person in your inbox who says that you made them happy, every person who feels comfortable coming to you for advice or to talk to about the things going on in their life–these are all people you have had a good impact on and whose lives you have changed, however slightly, for the better. you remember that emily dickinson poem your teacher probably made you read in middle school? “if i can stop one heart from breaking i shall not live in vain”? that should be everyone’s life motto. if you can make one person smile, one person feel a little bit less alone, then you’ve done something good in your life.
if you make edits of any kind (even including basic things in MS Paint that are literally just color blocks with text) you get to use a ton of cute af fonts. like, that might not seem super important but it is! having a big font collection is cool even if it does make your editing program freak out every time you try to open them.
so, life advice: make a positivity blog. it’s an act of helping your peers and an act of self-care and we could all probably do with a little more of both.
i feel like its dumb but i think its so sweet that mitch would get a tattoo for jonas. especially with how much work itd be? im assuming older mitjo is kind of same situations as now? mitch might not have a lot of money (enough to get by comfortably a few times or maybe just enough to get by with a little worry) but tattoos are a lot of $$$ and mitch got a big detailed, colored one. plus font. not to mention pain? AND having to hide it from Jonas, since Mitch surprised him with it. like wow. wow
I STRONGLY AGREE WITH THIS WHOLE MESSAGE
Mitch is,,, Honestly such a sap. I know he’s like “BLEH” about romantic gestures and being super sweet yet he turns around and does this crazy thing??
Mitch is a sap underneath his Mean Exterior. He saved up just for Jo!!! Bc he wanted something that shows just how serious he is, also bc he’s impulsive and does crazy shit like this but still it came from the heart and UGH IT’S SO GAY!!!! MITCH IS SO GAY!!!
Angie’s Makeup Glamour, for days when you feel like shit.
because nothing says ‘beauty’ more than that ugly font that I adore
Okay, so I was asked some time ago to write beauty spells and confidence spells, because I’m a drag queen witch with low self-esteem, and I’ve been using this kind of spell for ages.
I’m not a big fan of fancy spells full of shit that I have absolutely no idea where to get, so I keep my spells practical and as simple as possible. The thing is I’ve struggled with body image my whole fucking existence, and makeup and drag are a super important part of my life and daily routine, so here is a quick and easy way to charge your makeup.
What you’ll need:
Makeup of your choice
Let’s get started, what you wanna do is hold the container of the makeup you are charging and direct to it the intent you want it to have. I find it easy to say simple “orders”, it can be either out loud or with your inner voice, like “to make me glow” when charging a blush or a bronzer, for instance. The important is that you ~feel~ the energy flowing to your makeup, say your orders as many times as you deem necessary to make the energy stay in the makeup. You can visualize a flow of energy, you can breathe your energy, you can shout at your makeup (I did this once with a lipstick and I swear it works), it’s up to you, whatever works for you. You wanna leave it in the moonlight? Do it! Incense? Do it! Candles? Do it, but some things don’t go well with heat near them, like cream based shit.
I tend to charge my makeup once or twice a month., and everything that I use for drag has “I will transform” as well as something else. And here’s a list of the things I most commonly ‘order’ when charging my stuff.
“To conceal my flaws” - foundation, concealer
“To make me glow” - blush, bronzer, glitter
“To make me seduce” “to scare my enemies” - eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipstick
“To keep attention in me” - mascara, fake lashes
As I never go out of my house without sunscreen or primer, when I really want to go unnoticed, when I’m applying it and charge it with “I am invisible”. Instead of charging the makeup, you can charge when you are applying it, but that takes time and I’m lazy and always in a hurry.
Okay this is it. If you want anything more specific, please ask.
I’ve gotten several requests asking me to do a tutorial of how I make the quotes in my bullet journal [x]. This is just a quick example I made for this tutorial.
1. Mark out the center the first thing I do is that I mark out the middle of the page just to ba able to center everything correctly. I also mark out a box of where I want my text to go and how big I want it to be. The actual size might change in the end but I just like to do this to have a slight idea about how it’s gonna look in the end.
2. Time to start sketching Now it’s time to start thinking about what type of layout you want your quote to have. Start sketching, make several different designs and play around with different fonts and styles until you find one you like. If you feel like you really can’t come up with an original design, google “quote lettering” or something like that and you should be able to get some inspo from there :)
3. Add it to your page When you come up with a design you want it’s time to add it to your page. Make sure you get it properly centered and measure your letters/count them and the spaces. Don’t worry about it being too neat, you’ll be able to fix that later. And when it comes to styles and fonts, it’s all about practice. Look at other lettering and try to mimic them if you’re struggling.
4. Outline! :) Next is outlining. I like to use these black liners (don’t know the brand, sorry) and any black liner will do :) Be careful about edges and try not to smudge anything (like I did on the “deserve” :( ).
5. Fill it in Time to fill in any letters you want to fill in. Cursive writing and Times New Roman kind of fonts have the downstrokes bolder than the upstrokes, so try to think about that when writing if you want to fake calligraphy ;)
6. Details When you feel like you’re done with your letters you can go ahead and add details, shadows, colours, banners, little drawings, flowers or whatever you feel like adding. It’s up to you how you want your quote to look like :)
And then you’re done! :) If there are any further questions feel free to ask me!
Ever feeling so depressed with the unexpected results that are printed on your result slip? Or ever feel that you want to give up halfway because you think you had enough of this life? Well, everyone would have at least have this kind of feelings and thoughts because there are times where things don’t go as what you have planned. Here are some tips to keep you motivated, especially when it is near to the examination dates.
Always Stay Positive. As mentioned in my previous guide, having positive thoughts and feelings about yourself might actually help you to be positive. For myself, I am not a straight As student. In fact, I failed half of my subjects and I was really disappointed in myself. When I got my results, even though I do not show my feelings to my friends, I was in fact actually very upset with myself. But I learned that getting upset over things that have actually passed is quite a stupid thing to do and thus, I managed my emotions well and try to stay positive. Thoughts like ‘You can try to do better next time.’ or 'Let’s aim higher next time’, please think like this. Do not let the devil in you, or the negative thoughts in you take over your mind and body.
I Am Studying For Myself. Some students think that they are studying for their parents or for their teachers. They study because they want their parents to brag about their child to other parents or the teachers will talk about the student’s achievements to other students. But please not do think this way. You are studying for yourself, not for other people. You are studying because you want to do something that you want in the future. For me, I am studying hard for my O Levels because I want to get good results and with that results, to enroll in the course that I want after my secondary school journey. Even though I want to succeed in my academics because I want to make my parents happy, at the end of the day, it’s my own journey not my parents. Yes, your parents will be there supporting you in whatever you do, they would be your pillars of support whenever you feel like you are falling down.
You Got This. These three words are so important. You. Got. This. Firstly you know that you can do it. You can achieve that As in your result slip. It is the matter of fact whether you took the effort to go an extra mile. Studying hard is not enough darling, you need to have the mentality that you can and you know that you can solve those questions during your examinations. The mentality that you can actually get that As. Similarly to the first tip, which is to be positive, always remember that you can determine your grades and future.
Cute Stationaries.Having cute stationaries might help too. Simple pens motivate me to use them to write notes. I personally used MUJI pens for only six months and I got to say that they make you want to write more. MUJI pens are affordable here in Singapore and probably in other countries too. Even though there are not many stores worldwide, you can just order them online too. Their notebooks make you fall in love even though they are just plain simple. As the cover of the notebooks is plain, you could customize it to your liking. Another store that I personally like is TYPO. TYPO really offers notebooks that are 'Tumblr Worthy’. Even though the notebooks are slightly in the expensive range, it is really worth it.
Follow Other Studyblrs. This is seriously my favorite tip. Follow other studyblrs. Most of the studyblrs in this community are pretty friendly and nice so you can just drop a message and they would reply to your message. Following other studyblrs could help you stay motivated in your studies as well you can make new friends in this big community. Following other studyblrs can give you motivation with their pretty and lovable notes that they share.
Make Your Notes Pretty. Actually, it only makes sense to make your notes as detailed as possible but why not making your notes with full details yet pretty so that it would make you feel like studying. For me, drawing banners to the title, changing the fonts for the sub-heading and drawing some doodles on the blank space might help me stay focused and it makes me comfortable in studying. Personally, I like making notes more than reading from the notes that had been printed by my teachers because they are just plain boring and makes me want to sleep so by making your notes pretty can helps you stay motivated in your studies.
I really hope that that this guide is useful to those who really need it. Also thank you for the 800+ notes for my Guide To Overcoming Procastination. Actually it makes me feel quite happy that I could share some tips I personally used to those who wants it. That’s all about it folks ♥
