If you don't mind me asking what kind of job do you have I'm considering an art major for university and I dont know about a lot of the job options available Btw your work is literally to die for and so inspiring 💕💕
Oh anon, I don’t want to be the source of discouragement for you, but I’m afraid my day job actually is not related to the arts (not painting at least).
I should point out that I was originally a photography major in school, so painting is all self-taught. Not that it makes much of a difference, but some school provide a decent source/knowledge for job opportunities (many don’t).
With that said; I am not saying that art school = no jobs. A number of my friends have great jobs in the arts, some even get the opportunity to travel because of it, and most do teaching. What I lack and they don’t is connections. Not only do I not have any connections of worth in the art world, but I suffer from extreme anxiety about my work’s value. I never see it as ‘good enough’ to try and get it out there. This resulted in my inability to find a job in the field.
The most I do is commissions and book covers. At the moment I’m working on a project for a board game, but that opportunity was only given to me because a friend from school recommended me. So if you ARE willing to get yourself out there, seek the job market and any opportunities you can, then you could get a job in your field.
I should note that art major does not equal ‘big money’, but no one ever goes to art school to become rich.
Hi. So the fic rec thing. I always say sorry when I ask for fics( although I also say thanks) because the thing is I've seen many bloggers annoyed by it. If we ever ask for a link we can't find, they do help us but complain that we could have used Google. Same for fic recs. I don't know about others but I always apologize because I don't want to be a nuisance. I just thought you should know that. (And I might check your recs now. I hadn't before. Btw I love you) and thanks for being awesome.
Hi! I definitely understand the impulse to apologize when asking for things, because I am naturally inclined to do the same. But if a blogger regularly does fic recs and/or has a note in their description inviting requests, I really cannot see why they would get annoyed? Maybe the occasions you’ve seen it, someone was asking a blogger who had never hinted they might be interested in recommending things? Or a blogger who had specifically stated they were taking a break from doing recs? I don’t know, but my advice is to check their description and recent post history and then decide whether they are open to asks based on what you find :). If they’ve shown no sign of interest in rec requests, you’re probably better off trying another blogger who seems more enthusiastic rather than asking with an apology.
Also, in my personal experience, saying “i’m so sorry but can you do this?” is generally much more likely to make someone view you as a nuisance than saying “hey! you’re great and it’d make me very happy if you could do this!” For the record, I’ve never thought any of my askers were a nuisance because, like I said, I identify a lot with the apology impulse and I welcome asks of any kind at all! This is just something I’ve picked up from my real life, and I’ve noticed a huge difference in how people react since I started focusing on how I ask for things! It’s especially useful advice for making requests at work, hahaha.
Also, thank you for checking out my recs, you’re awesome too!!! :)
Ravenclaws are very happy that their dormitory is in a tower. Most of the windows can be climbed out of and they pull themselves onto the roof. They don’t do it like the Gryffindors do, for bravery, but for solitude. There is an unspoken rule that if a Ravenclaw sees another Ravenclaw on the roof, they don’t talk. On the roof or afterwards. It’s a safe space. Sometimes it’s where Ravenclaws be the teenagers they are and smoke, while sometimes it’s a peaceful place to just read. If a Ravenclaw is sitting on the roof crying, any other Ravenclaw, friend or not, will go and sit on the roof with them until they calm down. And another unspoken rule is that if someone sat on the roof and cried more than twice in a week, they have to talk to someone about it, a friend, a professor, or Madam Pomfrey. This is what once led a third year Ravenclaw to march a first year Gryffindor, who had somehow made his way on the roof of Ravenclaw Tower, to Professor McGonagall. He thought he was in trouble, but became very confused when he was simply asked how he felt.
so there’s been a fair amount of discussion on harry’s lyrics, both here and from reviews, but i thought i would make a handy guide on the REAL meaning behind the songs on the album, Harry Styles by Harry Styles, otherwise known as Emotional Erection:
meet me in the hallway: im sad
sign of the times: ???? ?? …… ??????? ?
carolina: party antics
two ghosts: still sad
sweet creature: i can be a nice wholesome boy when i want to be
only angel: im a sub
kiwi: im still a sub
ever since new york: im sad yet again
woman: to the surprise of no one, im still a sub
from the dining table: i like to cry and jerk off, in no particular order. maybe even simultaneously

it’s alright to have bad days, even as many as you had, even as many as you’re having - bad days are real and they’re valid and it’s, if nothing else, impossible never to have them; but please try your best to remember that good days will come soon
Some doodles I did on the side yesterday night ( @blesstale drew Zunde that there ) including Dreby taking his first steps. I saw this kid screaming “NOOOO!” at some meat in a grocery store before running to his mom, so there we go ✌️
If you all don’t have a cover letter template written up so you can just fill in the blanks during a job hunt, you’re doing yourself a major disservice bc man does it look professional and it can be SO fast and easy if you do it beforehand.

hi! im a new simblr, can you give me any advice to start off? i love your page and theme, by the way. :)
Sandy’s Masterpost for starting a new Simblr! 👍
Welcome to the community! I’m so glad you like my blog! Just a few months ago I was also new to the community so I know how daunting it can be! Below I’ve put together a bunch of helpful tips and links that I’ve either used in the past or believe will be useful to you, and any other new/aspiring simblrs! Obviously, everything is subjective- what works for me might not work for everyone else!
🎁 The Basics:
Make your tumblr a seperate tumblr, not a sideblog under your main/personal blog. It will make everything easier in the long run, trust me!
Use your description to advertise to others what you and your blog are all about. Also having either your URL or your avatar sim related will quickly advertise to others that you’re a simblr!
Enable replies and asks in your blogs settings, if you want people to be able to interact with you and your posts! Bare in mind an interactive simblr is much more approachable!!
Keep it sim related! A few personal posts every once and a while is perfectly fine, but post a lot of unrelated stuff you could lose followers.
Network! Follow other simblr’s, like their posts, leave friendly and encouraging comments! Making friends in this community is a sure-fire way to get started. I would be nowhere without my simblr friends!
Don’t become disheartened if it takes you a while to take off! Every simblr grows at a different rate.
Don’t mistag your posts! Failing to tag your NSFW content or tagging posts that aren’t cc posts as ts4cc will make you very unpopular.
Keep your blog atleast 80% original content! It’s much easier for a blog that tries to be original to gain traction in this community!
Don’t get caught up in how many followers/notes you have! Just post what you post because you love it! Don’t worry what other people think.
Everyone at some point or another will recieve anon hate. It’s sad that there’s so many negative people out there, but my advice is just to delete it. If you do want to post it, handle it with grace and dignity! (think of Audrey Hepburn!)
This is more a personal one but: try your best to avoid the drama!!
Finally, treasure your followers & always stay humble!
🎁 Common Simblr Terms Explained:
NSFW: Not safe for work. This is used for any posts that contain nudity of adult themes! It’s very important to tag these posts.
WIP: Work In Progress. This can refer to any sim related project that is unfinished.
WCIF: Where Can I Find? If someone sees a peice of CC in one of your posts that they like they may send you a ‘WCIF’ through your ask box, they’re simply asking where they can find that certain peice of cc. Not all simblrs agree to answer WCIF’s but it’s certainly very nice to!
MM: Maxis Match. Refering to custom content that matches the general
of the game.
Alpha: Refers to hairstyles that don’t fit the aesthetic of the game, as they have alpha layers which allow certain parts of the mesh to be transparent. This is what makes alpha hairstyles more realistic looking.
Clayified: Refers to Alpha hairstyles that have been retextured to look more maxis match.
This is everything I could think of! I hope something here helps you get started! If you’re hoping to be a story based blog I’d reccomend checking out my storytelling masterpost!Otherwise, good luck love!! 💖
