i like having money for once

I guess I have to be like a graphic designer to afford a therapist. I don’t even know if they make a lot of money I just know I had a boyfriend once and his parents were rich and
They didn’t let him go to art school Only a school for graphic designers. All people in his class thought I was weird cause I had a video where I put bread in my pants on YouTube

Words from Lilith, the Dark Moon

Inspired by a conversation with @wizkhalibra

Lilith in Aries:

Words of fierce determination and competitive jealousy

“It’s now or never”

“Life is an adventure”

“Why don’t you just be like me?”

Lilith in Taurus:

Words of lust for sex, money, or power

“This is why I work, so I can buy what I want,”

“I deserve to have this,”

“I feel safe in your arms”

Lilith in Gemini:

Words of cunning manipulation and hope for approval

“Do you like the way my words make you feel”

“I would never be that selfish,”

“Well you’re mine and I’m single”

Lilith in Cancer:

Words of support and dependency

“I do so much for you,”

“I want to make a family with you,”

“It’s like I’ve loved you once before,”

Lilith in Leo:

Words of attention and ego-stroking fun

“Let’s play the game of love,”

“you’re mine do you hear me, I don’t share,”

“Do you like the way I move,”

Lilith in Virgo:

Words of innocent seduction and dissatisfaction

“I love to please you”

“I can make you better,”

“Let’s not talk about faults shall we,”

Lilith in Libra:

Words of charming seduction

“You make me stronger,”

“I’m what you want and need,”

“Aren’t you happy we found each other,”

Lilith in Pisces:

Words of transcending bliss and quick exits

“How about in the shower,”

“I want to feel like we’re one,”

“You’re always in my thoughts,”

“God doesn’t answer my prayers like he once did. But he still talks to me. He talks to me through my mind and through my own mouth. He’s upset with me because he wanted me to wave at someone on the street and I didn’t. So he took away my money and told me to leave my jobs. My family put me in the hospital and they said I was bipolar. But I’m not mentally ill. I take the medicine because it’s part of the deal for me having my own apartment, but I’m not mentally ill. When I’ve paid my debt, God is going to transform my voice. He’s going to make me a great singer. One night I had a dream that I was singing and something golden fell from the sky. And I caught it so everyone gathered around me. I hope you pray about me and then you’ll see the truth. Pray to God and ask him: ‘Is this man honest, or is he mentally ill?’”

Harry Potter Studio Tour (winter edition)
[part 4] [part 1] [part 2] [part 3]

GIRLFRIEND
  • Mila: hold on GIRLFRIEND, I got you this thing I just know you'll look lovely in
  • Sara: thank so much GIRLFRIEND I just appreciate and love you so much
  • Michele: oh look at them being besties, I'm so happy Sara doesn't have men lusting after her for once
  • Mila: oh no you definitely got that wrong, I definitely am lusting after your sister, didn't you hear me explicitly calling her girlfriend earlier? Like this is definitely not platonic at all if that's what you're thinking, it's gay, very gay, so gay that in fact we could give yuuri and victor a run for their money, like that's how gay and unplatonic our relationship is
  • Victor in the background: UNTRUE IM THE GAYEST TO EVER GAY
  • Yuuri: victor please stop this is utterly embarrassing

They’d tested probably 10 people, spent a lot of money, and James wasn’t convinced on anyone yet. When I finished [my scene], he said, ‘Do you have any questions?’ I was like, ‘Are you fuckin’ crazy? Tell me everything.’ I gave him my Peter Quill version of an answer. Once you get smart about auditioning, you learn to audition before they say ‘Action.’ You walk into the room as the character. You let them think the person you are is close to the character they want. You make them think you already are that guy. Gunn was like, ‘Damn, this is it.

Budgeting Tips!

I’ve gotten pretty good at saving money over the years, here are my tips!

  1. Look into minimalism. I put this first because if you are someone who feels trapped in a cycle of spending money on clothes and things you don’t need (like I once was) you need to consider a way of life that requires less unnecessary spending and focusses on improving your character and life as a whole. It can be hard to even begin saving when you have a strong urge to buy the latest trends and trinkets, but it is possible to break out of the cycle, and easier if you watch some motivating videos. here are some of my favs (no sponsors!):
  1. Never spend more than you earn. This is easier for some and harder for some but is the most crucial part of saving because you need money left over each week to save. If you’re jobless at the moment, or spending heavily, you need to cut down your spending so its below the amount coming in.
  2. Put your budget in a spreadsheet. I put my weekly budget in an excel document with all my expenses (bus fare, phone service, food and other) and earnings (student loan payments, extra work) and see what can be left over.
  3. Decide how much you want to save, and how much you want to spend from your left over money. lets say you earn $150 per week and must spend $50 on utilities. You have $100 left over to spend and save. If you want to get to your savings goal fast, you should save more than you spend. If you’re relaxed about saving and just want to put away a small amount, you can adjust the ratio accordingly.
  4. Transfer your saving amount into your savings account immediately  after you get paid. Let’s say you want to save $60 per week and have $40 left to spend on food, experiences and miscellaneous items. Transfer that $60 into your savings account when you get paid and leave the $40 + utility amount ($50) in you spendings.
  5. Pay for utilities as soon as possible. Pay your service provider load your transport money onto your transport card, put the petrol in your car etc when you get paid, if possible. This leaves you with only your extra $40 spending money in your account, so you know how much you can spend from it throughout the week.  
  6. Have Fun! Saving is easiest when you enjoy it (duh!) so try to focus on the satisfaction of a rising bank account, and the reason you’re saving whether it be travel, study, safety, or just to get into the good habit.

Hi everyone!
I recently had an unexpected medical expense and am pretty short on cash at the moment. I could really use some money to help with co-pays and the like, so I’m going to do a small batch of commission.

I will draw:

  • oc’s
  • Fictional characters
  • Couples
  • Simple decorative backgrounds

I will not draw:

  • Anything overly NSFW
  • Animals
  • Any complex background or scenery

If you’d like to commission me, my email is erinlynart @ gmail!

Please include in your email:

  • A description of what you’re looking to get
  • A few reference images
  • If you have a color pallet, pose, or lighting situation in mind
  • Your paypal email

For icons I ask for all money upfront. Anything higher than that can be split into 2 payments, half upfront and the other half when it is finished, if necessary

As of right now I am only going to accept 4 slots, but may open them again once the first batch is done.

1. Taken
2. Taken
3. Taken
4. Taken

If you guys could help me out, I’d really appreciate it. Though nothing serious is wrong with my health, I have had to make numerous trips to the doctor recently and all those trips have been adding up financially.

Thanks!


Making YouTube your fulltime job

Okay, yes I totally just googled that picture, but that’s not the point lol.

So, everyone should know by now you can basically get a job as a full time YouTube which is great and all but the question is….how? How do the famous YouTubers do it sooo fast? Do they bribe people to advertise their channel or something? These and so many more questions go through my head as I’m struggling to top off my own channel. At first, it was the partnership thing with YouTube but once you get on there’s no guarantee that you’ll become famous just like them. Now let me back up. I’m not saying I want a bigger following for the money or the fame or the partnership. Matter of fact, I’m already partnered for my 2,580 subbies and I’m quite happy that I even came that far. The point is, I want to grow to have that interaction. You know, have people give there different opinions about your videos and give you the criticism that you need to get better at what you do. Right now, I have about a few people that actually keep track of what I do and I’m wondering…HOW DO THEY DO IT? And also, how were they balancing out their regular jobs with YouTube? Because I find it so hard especially owning a dog and having noisy neighbors to record and edit a decent video. I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe…just maybe they’re consistent but they’re also probably either buying advertisements, collabing/got connections, or buying views and/or subscribers till it looks pleasing to the eye. What do you think? Repost this if you think the same.  

Why would a billionaire still want things?

I can never picture how a billionaire would want anything at all that he couldn’t easily have, much less be willing to lie or hurt people for it.  Once you’ve got enough money to spend the rest of your life drinking tequila sunrises on the beach, and for every one of your family and friends to spend the rest of their lives drinking tequila sunrises on the beach… shouldn’t you be at peace?  Shouldn’t your only remaining decisions be things like “learn how to paint” vs “book another fishing trip”?  How much of your wealth to leave to your children vs how much to use eradicating diseases?  Another tequila sunrise vs two more tequila sunrises?

Shit, that’s how I’d live the rest of my life if I had one hundredth of a billion dollars.  I’d have zero motivation to ever hurt anybody ever.

…Maybe that’s why I’m not a billionaire.

As I walked past them in a restaurant, a couple, on what must have been a first or second date, flagged me down from their table. From their broad, eager smiles, I already knew what they wanted.

“We have a bet,” the woman explained. “He thinks you’re from South America,” she said, gesturing to her date. Her money was on Pakistan.

I am a dulce de leche-colored woman, browner still in the summer. Tallish, with large eyes the color of Coca-Cola. My hair winds into curls at the hint of rain clouds. My lips are brown. “Like the president’s,” someone noted once, trying somehow to square Barack Obama’s multiculti look with my own.

My ancestors hail from the southern part of India, on the Bay of Bengal, which I mention only because the sea once had a way of washing up all varieties of conquerors and marauders on our shores. Lineage is messy.

But in 2017 America, my particular jambalaya of “features” frequently has me mistaken for Ethiopian. Trinidadian. Colombian. African American. It depends on which city I’m in, what I am wearing and, more often than not, who is doing the asking.

Now here was this couple, both white, asking the question I increasingly stumble over.

What am I?

Just another dark-featured, dark-haired woman in a vast sea of immigrants’ kids, I want to tell them.

Or more simply, I am brown. Because the more brown America gets, the more mutable ethnicity — mine, others — is becoming.

Read more here: I am Indian American, and it’s 2017. But I still get asked “What are you?

  • British Parliament: Hey guys!! How ya doin over in America?? So, you remember the French and Indian War, right?? Haha yeah that was a thing that happened. It also left us pretty broke sooo... we were thinking, to get some money, we're gonna introduce a new tax on you guys!! Just this once. So. What do you think
  • Some asshole over in Boston: I do not like it, Sam I am,

i know y’all are trying to be nice in uploading the content from the bundles for free for the people who dont have the means to get it, but really i find it kind of fucked up. the whole purpose of putting out this extra content only available through purchase is partially to help raise funds so that carmilla can make a better movie as kotex hasn’t backed them as far as i know.

a movie they’re making for us.

i understand how badly some of y’all want to see this content. i get it. but once links to the extra content are put out there for free, why would anyone else go and buy it later unless they really just feel like being nice. essentially, in the long run, you’re helping to steal money from both the creators, the crew, and the cast and the movie they’re planning on making.

and i find that pretty fucked up considering the amount of content they have right on youtube for free.

disability au’s: tourette syndrome! 

  • you have a tic where you click your tongue a few times in a row during class and it’s really loud so I can tell you get embarrassed by the looks u get. just becaus I’m an idiot though and like seeing you smile I end up drumming on the table to start a jam session with ur clicks as the baseline and we sound awesome man ayyy
  • I like to bet the odds of how many tics I’ll have in a spell every once in a while just because I like money&gambling but ur stupit ass always guesses right and it pisses me the hell off because im the one with the tic so how do u even know this what thenfuck 
  • your tic involves shaking your head back and forth and sometimes u hit me with your hair but I don’t rly mind cause its hella pretty and ur hairflip motion is A1
    • also i can see you get embarrassed by it and apologize but i like shamelessly flirting with you and joke that if I had hair like that I’d ‘flip it around all day too’ cause it makes u snort and smile
  • I have those really frustrating tics where I feel the need to curse unstoppably & of course it’s in the middle of a test when the room is deadass silent so I’m jus sittin here whispering “fuck” to myself over and over and I can see you noticing me but apparently not really noticing bc you just circled an answer on your paper saying “same" 
  • I didn’t know you had tourettes even though we kinda share looks all the time in art class, so when I held up my piece to show you it you grimaced/rolled your eyes and immediately mouthed a big apology and all I can do is laugh cause hey, your pretty cute when you’re embarrassed  
  • you never eat much around people because you hum when you do and it’s embarrassing, but I didn’t know that so when I forced you to try some of my cooking I had to admit, I just thought you liked it a whole lot man I was super happy 
  • the tics I get spasm my shoulder muscles and they’re really fucking annoying sometimes so I get frustrated and you always think it’s funniest thing to hear me cursing the hell out of everything when I go into a spell when it’s NOT– I hate it and I hate yuo and stop making me laugh so hard while this happening YOU’RE NOT HELPING
