i like those angles the best

As a studyblr, I procrastinate. I have weak subjects, and I get stressed easily. I lie to myself, “Yeah, this won’t be tested.” I quit my notes halfway because my motivation runs out, and when it returns, my forgetfulness and lack of organisation means that I don’t remember them. I scroll through my dash and think, “Wow. I’m so much less dedicated, hardworking, passionate than these people. I’m so much less than these people.”

I receive messages in my inbox that say, “Wow. You’re so inspiring.” And I can never fathom how someone could actually believe that. 

And then I do. Because the words we type, documenting our day, and the photos we post, perfectly arranged - they show an impossible, unreal version of ourselves. The best angle of ourselves - neat handwriting, brilliant modesty, impeccable focus, and enviable responsibility.

Just like how you shouldn’t unfairly compare yourselves to magazine covers, because they aren’t real, you shouldn’t compare your educational journeys to those of other studyblrs, because they aren’t a full and unbiased representation of how other people actually study (unglamorously).

every mitch outfit: ptxperience edition (part one) // (part two)

Can I be super negative for a second?

I am super disappointed that the ACOTAR series is being made into movies. I don’t think they will work as films at all.

Sorry if people are super excited for them.

The way that my brain reads books is completely in movie form (like most people probably). I provide camera angles, position the characters like I’m setting a scene, and when I think back on a book I revise or consolidate to what would fit best in movie form. (Do people do that?? idk. Like when I heard HP7 and Mockingjay were being split, I automatically knew where they would put the break and people thought I was crazy, but I digress)

When I heard that TOG was being made a show I was thrilled because you CANNOT put those books in movies. It’s too much material, especially later on in the series obviously. But with TOG, it is made for the big screen (or you know, little screen, whatever). Set pieces, grand finales, characters overlapping and puzzle pieces fitting together, action packed, etc

But that’s not how acotar is at all. If anything, it COULD work as a series as well, but with difficulty.

You could argue that Thorns and Roses could be made into a movie but I think it would be hard to make it have the right flow. Not to mention, Sarah throws a wrench in the narrative when Feyre goes UtM, it’s a complete mood shift, and UtM would eat considerable screen time. So everything else would be abbreviated- but you know, it’s Tamlin so that’s not too bad.

Then acomaf happens. You guys, acomaf will never work on a big screen. No way, no how.

1. It’s LONG. It is the slow burn of all slow burns. Movies don’t deal in slow.   Consolidating that slow burn into a movie would cut out INSANE amounts of character development.  As a reader, you love each of those moments between Feyre and Rhys, and how it helps Feyre SLOWLY heal and trust him and love him. And there are a million of those little moments. And with the highly sensitive nature of her healing from abuse, good luck putting all that in 2.5 hours without botching it, rushing it, or cutting out all but 5 scenes which will just make me so sad.

2. It’s introspective. There are a whole lot of things that happen in this book that don’t play out in the open. Not to mention that this is not an Action book like TOG, it’s a Feelings book. There’s a lot of sensing and thinking and internal monologues and reading others’ thoughts. When you are reading acomaf and every other conversation is happening internally down the bond, it makes sense. You know what you get when you put that on screen? annoying voice overs and characters staring at each other for an uncomfortable amount of time. There is absolutely no time for all that shit- UNLESS…

3. When you think about it, the whole book is already set up EPISODICALLY. Look, I’ll even give some of these episodes titles:

The Wedding. The Night Court. Locked In. The City of Starlight. The Bone Carver. The Court of Nightmares. Summer. Starfall.  Do you see where I am going with this? Call me, Netflix.

Basically I have a vision for how this is going to go and I don’t think a movie could ever do it justice and will probably make everything seem really contrived and rushed. Lastly, and just because I’ve been burned too many times by the film industry. I’ll give my predictions:

“Are you #teamtamlin or #teamrhysand? Retweet your favorite acotar man!”

White Rhysand. That’s all.

Side characters with any depth? What’s that?

Subtlety and and character-led story telling? What’s that?

nekomata91  asked:

Hi... I love ur blog :3 I have some problems to draw and I wish u can help me, can u? Please :3. What els, a few months I try draw a anthropomorphic dragon, but it's so difficult make the legs. I want u can help me with that, how can I do dragons foots on front and back view? And how sees when they flying?

Well! Dragons are generally reptiles, so looking at other reptiles is a good idea.

There’s lots of different kinds of reptilian feet, you could have something mitteny like a crocodile

or some pudgy toes like a gecko

or some very long toes like a lizard

It’s honestly depends on what kinda dragon you’re making!

To anthromorphise something though, you need to be familiar with both the animal’s and human anatomy, because what you’re drawing is a mixture between the two.

There is a lot of freedom to be had with drawing dragons, anthro or otherwise. Your typical western dragon looks something like a cross between a lizard and a cat, anatomy-wise


And you can find plenty of tutorials on this style of dragon, KyriaDori’s is very nice.

But! There’s nothing stopping you basing your beast on a crocodile for example

So don’t feel locked in on that one style of dragon. Have a look at and study various different reptiles and see what traits you think best suit your character.

But anyway, lets actually get onto drawing those feet. Dragon feet, particularly the hind feet, I find are often quite similar to human feet. Especially so if you’re making an anthro!

I think that the construction that N3MOS1S uses for human feet works very well if you elongate things a little bit:

Breaking things down into blocks and spheres will allow you to draw them from any angle you wish!

You can adjust the shapes to suit what kinda foot you want, like longer toes for a more lizardy foot

or more mass for a croc like foot

As for the legs, I again suggest reading KiaDori’s tutorial, as it’ll help you understand what kinda legs dragons have.

Then you just need to blend it with human anatomy until you reach a medium you’re happy with

13thblackcat wrote a couple tutorials on combining ungulate anatomy with human anatomy if you need some help with that process!

But again I’d like to stress that you don’t have to restrict yourself to one specific way of drawing dragons!!

as for the flying question, I’d go have a look at my bat wing tutorial.

anonymous asked:

Why do you think the fandom find Azula hot?

Pffft. Don’t think I’m fooled for a second, anon. I know what your game is. Of course I know. I know it very, very well…

… but why not indulge you? xD

Since Jesus Christ wasn’t part of this ask, I am leaving religion alone this time. I’m sure the nuns from my school would be pleased for it (?).

Now, as it is for most fandoms, the Avatar fandom has no shortage of awful ideas supported by like 99% of the fandom community. This ain’t a place where the best ideas are generally well-known or supported, instead the worse ones are, and even cast and crew promote the bad ones, no less! I’ve seen absolutely ridiculous theories out there, debunked a bunch of them myself, yelled at people for hours about mischaracterization and misconceptions of characters from canon to fanworks…

… So, considering that the fandom has that sort of terrible streak, you’d think that something, at least ONE THING that’s actually true and wonderful will be supported by the majority of the fandom one day.

I’m inclined to believe that this wasn’t always as it is, but alas, times have changed. Many have come and gone in the fandom, and eventually, the truth came out, so loud and clear that NOBODY can deny it, no matter how hard they may try. The day has come when the fandom has reached a consensus about something, and I, for one, finally have nothing to argue with them about for once! Because the fandom knows the truth:

AZULA IS HOT.

So indeed, why did the fandom, after such a long streak of popular and widely promoted bad ideas, suddenly come to accept such a reasonable truth? It feels… OOC??? Can a fandom have enough personality to be OOC at times? Who knows, but it seems weird that after so long, they’d be so reasonable about anything. But let’s, of course, examine the pertinent evidence to prove the fandom is right, shall we?

First things first: Azula’s heritage. I am well known as an Ursa critic. Like, man, I could rant for days about all the wrong she did. I am also someone who ridicules Ozai ten times out of nine. Like, I can’t lie, I love making fun of him, because it’s just so easy?? 

But alas. The evidence:

Mr. Hot Pants is her father. Look at those eyes. Those ckeebones. The lustrous hair. His fucking eyebrows are perfect. His smirk is crooked in the ideal angle, like fuck you Ozai, cut this out RIGHT NOW. Literally, Sozin was never this hot. Azulon was never this hot. Iroh was never this hot. Only Ozai, master of the genes of hotness, could ever have achieved this level of perfect handsomeness.

And now, introducing the mother:

… Far from the best shot there could be of her, but cut me some slack, she doesn’t show up in any other episodes and most her shots in this one aren’t all that good? Still, if the animation was better she’d look better, guaranteed! My complaints about her as a human being have nothing to do with how pretty she is, and she is. It’s true.

But okay, continuing with my point… 

Ozai, Ursa, together? This evil plan was masterminded by Azulon himself, who said “THOSE GENES WITH THESE GENES WILL CREATE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHILD, I MEAN, MOST POWERFUL CHILD OF ALL!”

For fan proof of the hotness of this pair, look here. For fan proof of hilarity of this pair, look here. For further hilarity, look here too.

Anyways, point in case being: if you have such good-looking parents (who are hella messed up in the morals and human decency department but that ain’t the subject), the chances for them to create a beautiful child increase exponentially!

And indeed, we have our beauty eugenics experiment’s results back:

So indeed. Science and genetics that I can’t use for Ozai (because we have no idea what Ilah looks like) are in the works here: look at this lovely, beautiful girl! She’s so pretty! She’s glorious!

And of course, why hot?

Science, again, answered that easily enough:

LOOK AT HER FIRE! THIS IS OFFICIALLY HOTTER FIRE THAN REGULAR FIRE, OKAY? 

According to the site I looked at?  “Anytime you see blue in a fire it is hotter than white.   The range is between 2,600 and 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit and its the most oxygen-rich type of flame.”

INTO THE INFERNO FOR REAL, MAN!

Basically, Azula isn’t just hot, my friend. She is THE HOTTEST. Only blue firebender we know! Possibly only one EVER! No one in this universe can get hotter than that!

So Azula, the beautiful, clever, smart, wonderful Azula, outdid her parents in terms of beauty and hotnesss. The apprentice dethrones the master, or something like that (okay she wasn’t learning from them but whatever, she still is prettier than them both XD). 

So, the fandom thinks she’s hot because frankly, anyone who denies it at this point is just trying to embarass himself. The Princess is the hottest. Only ignorant peasants disagree (?).

Hot Stuff (Leo Valdez X Chubby!Reader)

Fandom: Heroes of Olympus
Pairing: Leo Valdez X Chubby!Reader
Word Count: 971 
Prompt Given: The reader is feeling down in the dumps on Valentine’s Day. Pretty accustomed to not getting any Valentines, kinda self loathing, until Leo comes along and cheers her up.
Author’s Note: Takes place at Camp Half-Blood, though I can’t remember if that’s right?? We’re just pretending that like all the demigods are at Camp Half-Blood for Valentine’s Day because why the heck not  <33

You sighed, resting your chin on your palm as you looked around you. Almost every single demigod had someone to share the day with, and they were all giggling and exchanging valentines.

It made your heart hurt.

You had never been the most popular girl in school, but even when you went to regular school, you could count on one of your best friends to buy you a cheesy valentine and a little box of chocolate. Here, you had no one. You weren’t really friends with any of the other campers, sure, you talked to some of them occasionally, but not often, and not enough to actually consider them friends. Well, there was one person that you considered a friend, but you hadn’t seen them around yet today.

You were just going to stand up and hide in your cabin, maybe read a book while your brothers and sisters were off with their dates, when you heard the step creak as someone sat beside you.

You turned to look at the person, raising an eyebrow at Leo Valdez, one of the sons of Hephaestus and your only friend at camp. “What are you doing here?”

“What are you doing all alone?” Leo questioned back, and you shrugged.

“Don’t have a valentine. Don’t really have any friends, either.”

Leo pressed a hand to his heart and pretended to be offended. “Excuse me, but I think you’re forgetting someone.” When all you did was look at him blankly, he pointed to himself with both hands. “Me! We’re friends.” He was silent for half a second. “Right?”

You smiled slightly. “‘Course we are, Leo. You’re just the only one, really. No one talks to me here.”

“Again, I talk to you all the time. And aren’t you and Nico like, creepy creature of the night buddies or something?”

You rolled your eyes fondly at the joke. “Actually, yes, but he’s not even at camp right now. He’s on some mission for his dad, I think.”

Leo frowned. “Well, that sucks.” He gave you a pointed look. “You need to make more friends.”

“Gee, yeah, sounds really easy when you say it like that. This is me we’re talking about, Leo. It took me a month to actually respond when you tried to talk to me. I’m not the best with conversation.”

“That’s because you don’t practice enough. Why don’t you talk to Piper or Jason?" 

You looked at Leo as if he were crazy (though really, he kind of was). "Oh yeah, because I can totally talk to Piper, who looks like a goddess, or Jason, who looks like a god, when I look like…” You sighed. “Neither of those things. That would end well.”

Leo raised an eyebrow at you. “Who says you don’t look like a goddess? From every angle I’ve seen you at, you look like a goddess to me.”

You blushed and buried your face in your hands. “You’re my friend! You have to say that! It doesn’t mean you actually think it.”

Leo’s eyebrows knitted together; he was even more confused now. “Just because I’m your friend doesn’t mean I’d lie to you.” Leo pulled your head away from your palms, but kept a gentle grip on your chin. “You really are stunning, __y/n__.”

You tried to look away, but Leo wouldn’t let you. “I mean it. I don’t know why you can’t see it.”

You pointed down to your stomach, a lot more pudgy than you’d like. “That certainly doesn’t help. I don’t look like Piper, or Annabeth, or anyone, really. They’re all skinny and athletic and I…” You sighed again. “I’m chubby and hate exercise with a burning, fiery passion.”

Leo was looking at you in desperate confusion. “You do know that chubby and ugly don’t correlate, right? Just because you’re chubby doesn’t mean you’re unattractive, and you’re not. Same with being skinny. I’m the scrawniest person ever, and most girls won’t look at me twice.”

“That’s because they’re stupid.” You said simply. “You’re hot, Leo. Literally and physically. I thought you knew that?”

He smiled, a little self-deprecatingly, and it broke your heart. “I like to act like I am. Ya know, fake it 'til you make it? But it’s hard to believe it when no one’s ever shown the slightest interest in me.”

Without thinking about it, without even really meaning to do it, you leaned forward and pressed your lips to Leo’s, kissing him sweetly. Leo didn’t respond, and when you pulled away, his eyes were wide.

“What was that for?” Leo asked after he finally found his voice.

“I like you. I just never knew when the right time to tell you was.” You smiled softly at him. “Now seemed like a good a time as any.”

Leo blinked once, then twice in surprise before surging forwards and capturing your lips with his in a warm, fierce kiss. Your hands came up to rest on his neck, lightly twirling the dark hairs at the base between your fingers as you kissed him back. One of Leo’s hands dipped down to your waist, his fingers squeezing your hip softly.

Leo reluctantly broke the kiss after a moment, his breath coming in harsh pants as you grinned at him. “We are quite the pair, aren’t we, Leo?”

Leo nodded, a bright, brilliant smile on his face. “We are.” His lips found yours again for a brief moment. “I hope you know that I am going to do everything I can to show you how beautiful you are.”

“I hope you know that I am going to do the same thing with you.” You responded easily, a hand moving down to his cheek and running your thumb along the bone.

Let’s just say that it was quite a good Valentine’s Day for both of you.

End.  <3

dracarys--stormborn  asked:

I know I'm kinda late but how do you feel about the TVD finale and what they did to Stefan? Especially when they said that Damon's better than him? Also, Stef had more chemistry with Elena while she was unconscious than any Delena scene lol.

So, as you all know by now I didn’t actually watch the finale, but I read about what happened on Tumblr and I saw a couple of gif sets, so I do have a couple of thoughts about the finale.

- About what they did to Stefan: I’m not going to lie, I would’ve preferred it if Stefan and Elena would’ve been allowed to ride off into the sunset together because they’re the only couple that made sense as endgame all along, literally the only couple. But since it was made abundantly clear that wasn’t going to happen, I’m actually quite happy with how it turned out. Because not only did Stefan do what he always does, which is stepping up and keeping those he loves safe, he also found peace, and not just peace, oh no, he was reunited with his very best friend and I kind of found that heartwarming. It wasn’t the happy ending I hoped for when I started watching, but under the given circumstances, I really think it was the best ending possible for us Stefan stans.

- About what he said about Damon: I’m not even mad, the show has been using other characters to prop up Damon through dialogue for years now. Stefan always excused Damon’s behavior, he always made it seem like something Damon was not, he always gave Damon credit even though he never deserves it, he has been pushing Elena back to Stefan since season five, so what Stefan said in the finale didn’t get to me because, well, it was big fat bullshit but it was nothing new.

- About the DE scenes: first of all, let me just say how happy I am they didn’t even get a conversation. Like, they hugged, they kissed, they held hands, and that’s it. I was prepared for something much, much, much worse. And then there’s the painful, hilarious lack of chemistry between them. Because not only did Ian choose to kiss Nina’s chin instead of her lips (no amount of slowmotion and over the top lighting and fancy camera angles can hide that, dear TVD crew), he also couldn’t even be bothered to not look constipated when he held her hand. Like, those scenes were so bad it still makes me laugh and it’s been weeks. xD 

- About Katherine’s “comeback”: I only have one thing to say: what were the writers thinking??????

- About endgames: when it comes to endgames, I have to say I found SE to come out looking best. Not only because of the fact that DE didn’t even spend the afterlife together (we’re supposed to believe they’re ‘epic soulmates’ but it was like Elena just lived her life as best as she could because she owed Stefan that and then she bailed as soon as she died xD) but also because of that final SE scene, the physicality, the chemistry. Yes, sure, the dialogue was about Caroline and Damon, but just look at that scene. Mute the scene and look at it, and it’s our beautiful SE endgame. Nina and Paul brought their A game one last time and it is something to be grateful for. Over the course of eight seasons, SE got the best lines, the best scenes, the best chemistry, SE actually had it all and the series finale reconfirmed that. They’re endgame, guys. Maybe not ‘technically’, but they looked and felt like the real endgame couple. Plus, that scene of Elena writing in her diary near his grave… Like, the diaries were something that connected them and when they got together, they didn’t need them anymore because they had each other to talk to instead, and as soon as they were apart, they started writing in those diaries again. Stefan was always the one Elena could truly be herself with, and now that he died, she dug up her diary and wrote in it while looking at the crypt where he was buried and there’s something morbidly poetic about it. It’s SE, it has always been SE. (I also have to add I loved that Elena left her necklace on his grave or whatever, because if Kevin did one thing right in that final episode, it was making sure everyone knew that necklace was always meant to be an SE symbol, he righted JP’s wrong with that and it’s awesome because now DE is actually literally left with nothing. Think about it.)

- And last but not least, about me being petty: and this is me being really petty, but can I just say how hilarious it is that Stefan chose to die rather than spending a single day married to Caroline? xD

Battle Action or Pokemon Hero Greninja by Tomy Takara. This figure I was waiting and hoping to be awesome, size is good, sculpt is alright, paint is generic and articulations are ok. I would have chosen a different design approach but…anyways. Head is on a ball joint which is render obsolete by the scarf which by the way is a fixed piece so the tongue is stuck on that pose, head will only go 360 around,  arms are hinge on swivels, somewhat confusing but they work and can get you a decent range of motion. the hands just have a swivel that I wish it was a ball but I want to warn you is kinda thin and fragile so dont try to bend it. Torso is a ball joint I believe…it goes side to side front and back however, it only goes very little. Legs are on a ball joint have decent range and knee on a hinge swivel, cant go very far.


the figure can be pose in lots of ways however, the character is a ninja and there is no a lot of ninja poses you will wish to do but you can not do, thats my main disappointment. those are the best poses I could come up with and some of them are cheated with the head remove and sticky tag because your greninja will most likely be looking to the ground if you try to go fancy, a lot of his signature poses can’t be done without cheating the figure and other poses only work on specific angles. his torso goes to the back almost nothing… but goes to the front ok which just helps him look to the floor even more so no help there.

he is not terrible but it isnt awesome either.  definitely a good size and great inclusion to the smash collection, I say get it if you are collecting Smash or Pokemon. I say pass it if you want a fun figure to pose. I might try to get anotherone and change all the articulations.

First Impressions This Season

So it’s a week into this season and every show has had at least one episode now (I think). I’ll go through what I’ve watched and say what I think so far. I guess spoilers for episode 1, but are those really spoilers?

Gabriel Dropout

The premise is that after graduating angel or demon school said angels or demons go to earth and go to school there so that they can learn to be proper angels or proper demons. The main character is a decidedly unangelic angle that gets hooked on online games and becomes a shut in, while the rest of the cast is filled in with characters equally ill suited to their roles. This looks pretty entertaining and it’s basically Doga Kobo doing what they do best. It doesn’t seem like a show that I’m going to remember down the road, but it’s a nice moe SoL to watch. The humor has been pretty good too, so I’ve got decent expectations from it.

I’m super excited for LWA and the first episode was great. The original OVA that was kick started was fantastic and set this all in motion, so that alone is kind of cool to see. I’d call the show a moe SoL, but it’s really a Trigger SoL with moe elements. Is it moe? I don’t even know lol, but I’ve got high expectations for it and I don’t think Trigger is going to let me down. They are good at the over the top crazy, and I think that they can do a great over the top wacky magical shenanigans show. Definitely high hopes for this show.

Kono Subarashii no Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 (Konosuba s2)

That mouthful of a title aside, it’s more konosuba. The animation seems like it’s even more “quality” than last season, but that doesn’t bother me too much. The kinda cobbled together sometimes almost bad animation kinda adds to the show. But there is probably a limit to that and I hope they don’t find it lol. The Star Wars credits were a hilarious way to start off this season, and I hope that it continues to amuse me as much as it has already. I’ve got decent expectations of this show, but I’m not holding out for it to be incredible.

The premise of this show is that there are demi humans in the world and the teacher of this school is interested in learning more about them by interviewing them. Naturally a bunch of them end up at his school so this gets to happen. I was a little concerned about the possible weird teacher-student relationships that this sort of show can get into, but after two episodes I don’t think it will be like that at all. The cast seems pretty alright, with Hikari and the teacher being great characters. I’ll watch this show just for Hikari’s antics even if it somehow gets worse. I don’t think this will be an amazing show, but once again a nice cute SoL to fill the time.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon

Sort of an unexpected title for Kyoani to be adapting, but it seems to be working so far. The premise is that Tohru (the dragon) becomes Kobayashi’s maid because on a drunken adventure Kobayashi pulled a holy sword out of her and then said she could stay with her. I picked up the first volume of the manga awhile back because buy two get one free sales make me do silly things and I really enjoyed it. There is a nice amount of good jokes and then some just funny moments with Tohru being a dragon and doing dragon things. I expect this to keep me thoroughly entertained, but it probably won’t be one of Kyoani’s truly marvelous show. Gonna be hard to follow Hibike S2 lol.

Accessibility question...

[So I mentioned on Friday] that I’m looking to type out transcripts to make posts more accessible. I had a general idea of how I was going to format certain kinds of posts, but I forgot about something.

Tarot spreads.

I’m not sure where to begin on being able to describe a spread’s layout to a point that it matches up exactly with what’s in the image. 

  • “Card #2 is horizontal and really close to Card #4″?
  • “Card #10 lies between the pixel at coordinates (X,Y) and…”?
  • “The spread is in the shape of an isosceles triangle, the smallest angle at 30 degrees…”?

I don’t know how much detail I need to go into for this. So I’d like to turn the question to those who need the image captions. What’s the best way I can create a caption for a Tarot spread for you?

Myers Briggs Test by Functions

Rank each of the following statements on a scale of 1 to 5 based on how well it describes you or your beliefs (1 being not at all and 5 being describes completely):

  1. It is unkind to unnecessarily offend others; people should filter what they say in order to avoid hurting those around them.
  2. I think most things have a deeper meaning than what is present on the surface. I spend a lot of time contemplating what individual events or statements mean or say about life as a whole.
  3. When working on a problem, I like working with my hands rather than theorizing, finding it helpful to be able to create and see the physical results of a project.
  4. I find it fun to intellectually reason through different theories or ideas, even if there is no logical application for this type of knowledge.
  5. Once I find something I like, I tend to stick with it loyally instead of trying out new options. I believe there’s no reason to change something that works well in the first place.
  6. When considering one topic or idea, my mind easily jumps to related stories and other connections. Often people find it difficult to follow my train of thought because my mind jumps from idea to idea.
  7. You should stay true to yourself and say what you believe without worrying about who will be upset by your words or actions.
  8. People should be able to back up their assertions with overt facts, data, and reasoning. These will reveal whether something is true and logical or false and illogical.
  9. Life is meant to be experienced first hand. I enjoy sensory experiences like sports/art/etc. and taking in the world as I experience it rather than living in my head.
  10. I prefer brainstorming various options and envisioning all the possible ways a project/event could go rather than committing to one idea and sticking with it.
  11. I feel like it is my responsibility to consider the moral and emotional wellbeing of those around me; I like to advise my friends on finding the right thing to do and I deeply care about their problems.
  12. I am often thinking about the future and events that are to come. I have a clear vision in my head of what I want things to be like, or what I think they will be like. This vision is clear and focused and I like to narrow down the ways the future could unfold to one.
  13. I almost always know how and why I am feeling a certain way in a situation. When presented with controversial topics, I can easily understand what my personal views are outside of the context of other people’s beliefs.
  14. I am energized by wit, word games, puzzles, riddles: anything that involves my inner sense of logic and reasoning. I like breaking concepts down in my head in order to understand them.
  15. I am skilled at taking charge of a group, impersonally organizing people and implementing a plan of action. I have assertive and organized qualities that make me a born leader.
  16. I often consider new situations in the light of my past experiences and memory. I think about what I learned from past situations and apply these to my current ones.
  17. I am very in tune with my environment: noticing any changes that occur, completing physical tasks easily, and having an eye for aesthetics.
  18. I am good at looking at a project or situation and recognizing the flaws or weaknesses and proposing a method that is more efficient.
  19. I don’t find it useful to share my emotions with others, and it doesn’t help me to understand my feelings to talk them over with a friend. I can best understand how I feel in a situation by spending time by myself processing my feelings.
  20. When I consider the future, I think about all the disparate ways a situation could unfold. I anticipate every different situation without worrying about which is the best or most accurate.
  21. I am good at noticing details: small visual cues or other characteristics of my environment, how I’m feeling internally, and particulars such as numbers or dates, and have a good memory where I store this information.
  22. I tend to think convergently. I will focus on one situation or project and analyze it, spending my time interpreting it from every possible angle in order to completely understand it.
  23. I like the idea of reaching harmony in a group, and tend to sense and consider what other people’s values and beliefs are before making a decision. I like those around me to be happy with the decisions that are made.
  24. I think external methods of organization (such as corporation hierarchies or governments) are a necessary way of maintaining efficiency and maximum productivity, and I like to see how I can fit my plans and logic into an overarching system such as these.
  25. I look at independent experiences or situations and try to condense them into greater, overarching truths.
  26. Once something has piqued my interest, I want to understand it completely: all the little details of its inner workings so I can fully decipher it.
  27. I have a good memory. I can easily remember and place faces, names, dates, etc. even from a long time ago.
  28. Even though I am a deeply emotional person, I recognize the fact that feelings and morals are generally illogical and created by the individual.
  29. I recognize that there are many “truths” in life, and none of them are absolute over the others. I appreciate each perspective for its own individual frame of mind and ideas.
  30. I find that talking over my feelings with a friend helps me to understand how I’m feeling, verbalizing my emotions and hearing feedback from someone I trust.
  31. I would consider myself a realistic person, good at recognizing what needs to be done in situations and actually implementing it.
  32. I understand new situations best by jumping into it myself. I learn by taking in the sights and sounds of a place and interacting with it in the moment.

#34. They used to tell me I’d never amount to anything

The last thing that you’ve wanted to see was Chae Hyungwon’s face. You never understood why a lot of girls like him and you don’t even find him that attractive, especially his arrogant attitude. He was someone whom you’ve despised since the day you’ve stepped foot inside the school grounds. Ever since he laid eyes on you, he wouldn’t stop bugging you, looking down at you whenever you’re doing a class activity together. 

“Okay, fine, you’re the smart kid. Sheesh, instead of telling me how good you are, why don’t you do it for everyone?” you barked at Hyungwon, who kept on correcting you in every single move that you do. 

It was quite amusing for those around the two of you. Everyone knew how much he liked you but they just couldn’t understand why you didn’t get a hint of it. Were you oblivious enough to notice Hyungwon’s crazy antics? Well, whatever you were, it was clear that you didn’t give a damn about it.

You shook that memory off and proceeded to your last class, Arts Class. That’s been your favorite subject since the day you held a pen, brush and other art material. Plopping your things down on the table, you waited for the others to arrive and remembered your purpose on why you were in that school in the first place.

As soon as the bell rang, everyone scrambled their way to their own seats. Good thing, your best fried beat Hyungwon to it in sitting right next to you. “Thanks.” you didn’t even give your friend a glance  when you said it as you were already dead beat from all your previous classes. “No problemo, my friend. Say, why do you not want to be seated next to him? He’s not bad–”

“His attitude is nasty.” you commented right before your professor came barging in through the doors with a canvas on his hand. As usual, your professor wore the same black turtle neck shirt and black slacks paired with black leather shoes. “Good evening, class.”

Everyone lifelessly greeted back and waited for the professor’s words. “Alright, I’ll be dismissing you guys early but first, I’ll make some announcements.” The professor plopped the painted canvas on the board, slanting it enough for it to stand. “Your project for this semester will be painting your partner using coffee.” 

What? Coffee? Is he in the right state of mind? you asked yourself as you were shook  by his sudden announcement. “And, I’ll be announcing the partners now.” Without any further ado, he pulled out a list of paired names and started announcing it. A lot were already called, except for you and Hyungwon and the rest of the class.

Upon hearing your bestfriend’s name being called, you prayed to God and crossed your fingers, hoping that Hyungwon won’t become your partner. As if the heavens answered your prayers, the professor called out someone’s name, along with Hyungwon’s name. You were about to do your victory dance when he suddenly took back what he said.

“Oh, I’m sorry. It’s Mei and Jung Won and it’ll be Hyungwon and [y/n].” you felt the whole world crash right before your eyes. You saw Hyungwon turn his head to look at you, a smirk was seen on his face. “Alright, here’s the criteria.” The professor continued to explain what you guys were supposed to do.

It was the umpteenth time you’ve sighed since the professor paired you with Hyungwon. “Hey, can you please stop with the sighing?” your bestfriend whispered, loud enough for you to hear. You rolled your eyes and sighed once more, not bothering to response. “Alright, I won’t be seeing you until the day of the deadline of the paintings. I expect to receive two canvas from one pair, each canvas must have a painting of the partners. Now, you can meet your partners and class is dismissed.” 

Before all of the students know it, the professor has left and everyone went to their partners. You were slumped on your seat, no energy to pull yourself off the chair. “My, you’re one lucky girl to have me as a partner. I can paint you in no time and we can have the whole time to spend it together, get to know each other–” Hyungwon beamed, making you groan. 

“Shut up. Just shut up, Hyungwon. Can we not talk about you and just get on with the project?” you begged, exasperated enough to hear his voice. Hyungwon was a tiny bit hurt by your remark but brushed it off. “Calm down, [y/n]. Anyways, when do you want to start?” He asked, hearing out your request, he sat himself right next to you and plopped his elbow on the table and rested his chin on his palm. 

“Can we start right away tomorrow?” you asked while staring right into his eyes. Staring right into his eyes was nothing for you but as for Hyungwon, he could feel his heart beat flutter real fast, the butterflies on his stomach went wild. He cleared his throat, and replied, “Sure thing.” 

Pulling your organizer out from your bag, you noted on the days for the two of you to work on your projects. “Are you free during these days? If not, we can transfer it to another day.” showing him your organizer, he looked at your schedule and was surprised to see how packed it was. 

“I’m fine with the days…. as long as I get to spend it with you.” Hyungwon’s voice trailed off right in the end, making you look at him and ask. “Come again?” Hyungwon shook his hands, telling you that it’s nothing. “Alright, we can make our projects in my studio at eight in the morning until whenever. Are you okay with that?”

“Yeah, sure.” A piece of paper was then handed to Hyungwon, you’ve written down your number and your studio’s address. “Just give me a call when you’re already outside my studio tomorrow.” When he received the paper, both of your fingers collided with each other and a spark of electricity went running through both of your spines. 

The two of you looked at each other, shocked by the sudden shock. Weird, you cocked your head and decided to just shrug it off. Everyone was slowly leaving the room, making the two of you say your goodbyes and leave.

It was already seven-thirty in the morning when you’ve arrived in your studio with a cup of iced americano and a bag of croissants on your hands. Placing it down on the table, you tied your hair up and grabbed a piece of croissant and plopped it right away onto your mouth.

Preparing the whole room, you continued to munch on the croissant while placing two canvas stands on each side. Time passed by without you knowing. Once your phone rang, it snapped you back to reality. Hurriedly picking your phone up, you saw that it was an Unknown Caller; probably Hyungwon. 

The sound of your phone ringing echoed throughout the whole studio. Jogging your way out of the studio, you pushed the doors open. Hyungwon stood there with a black bag slung over his shoulders. “Hey.” he greeted. “Hey, come in.” opening the door wide enough for him, he went in without any hesitation.

As soon as he step foot on your studio, his jaw dropped at the paintings that you’ve made. But there was something that he noticed right away, a feeling that you’ve felt whenever you made those paintings. 

Noticing his expressions, you stopped your tracks and turned to him. “What’s wrong?” his expression was unreadable but he flashed you smile. “It’s nothing. Shall we start?” He asked in order to diver your attention. You nodded your head and pulled out two new canvas and placed it on the stand.

Before the day came, you’ve been thinking of ideas and you wanted to make everything go smoothly as you planned. “Last night I jotted down some ideas on how we could paint each other. Would it be better if we take photographs of each other first, and develop it right away in order for us to start? Or we could ask each other to pose naturally or do some pose that you want to do or something..” 

Despite the fact that the two of you weren’t close, Hyungwon was able to read you like an open book. This was something he learned ever since he saw you, you were unlike everyone else in the field of Arts. You were insecure, you had low self-esteem, you weren’t confident. You were the epitome of those things.

Your voice trailed off as soon as you saw how sad Hyungwon’s expression was. This was unlike him. He usually smiles in confidence, ready to crush the confidence of others and be on top of them like a king, but this one was nothing like the Hyungwon you’ve hated. 

But even though his expression was like that, you felt that you’ve been belittled. It was the only thing to fuel your anger. Anger slowly rose, you gritted your teeth and you clenched your knuckles until it turned white. “What the heck’s your problem, Hyungwon? Are you belittling me or what? I know I’m not good at anything that I do!” 

Hyungwon stared at you in surprise, it was one sudden confession from you. “I don’t know but you’ve always looked at me like that ever since I came to this freaking school. I know that I suck at this field but I want to prove everyone’s thoughts about me wrong….. yet you’re here to stop me from doing it..”

You didn’t know why you were suddenly telling him all those things but you can’t stop now, you’ve begun it might as well tell him everything. “They used to tell me I’d never amount to anything…” The bad memories came rushing back in, slowly killing you in every angle. 

“But… I’m trying my best to defy them wrong. I know you’re Mr. Perfect and you’re arrogant but you have something to be arrogant of. I, on the other hand, have nothing to be proud of. Just thinking about these kinds of stuff tend to suffocate me, I want all the things that I make to be perfect as I’m too scared to be rejected by everyone else…”

This was the first time he saw you so vulnerable. Your heart was filled with scars and Hyungwon knew right away. The sound of your shaky yet fragile voice slowly trailed off when you felt Hyungwon’s hands wrap around you. You couldn’t help but break down in to tears. 

Sobbing your heart out, Hyungwon comforted you, calming you down with his deep voice. “No, don’t listen to them [y/n].” You continued to cry but you listened to what Hyungwon was going to say. “You don’t suck at those things, [y/n]. All those things they said to you were words that came out from insecurity. They knew that you have some potential in you and I know that. I can see the potential that you have, [y/n].” 

“And I’ve never looked down on [y/n]. You’re someone who’s actually beaten me in every single thing that I’m good at.” All the negative thoughts were washed away with confusion. You weren’t expecting this from him. The thought of your heart skipping a beat scared you, the unusual fluttering of butterflies in your stomach made you question everything. 

“The reason why I kept on bugging you was because I adored every single thing that you did, how your face would lit up, your graceful movements and everything…but I really don’t know how to act when I’m around you…. I’ve never thought that you would see my intentions in a bad way.” Hyungwon’s hold around you tightened, making you stiffen. 

What is he trying to say? I don’t get it. you thought while you stared at a blank area with your cheek on his chest. Hyungwon took a deep breath and spoke once more, “[y/n], I know that you’ll have a bright future ahead of you….. and I wish I will be there by your side when that time comes..” 

The last part came out as a mumble, making you look up to him with your eyebrows knitted together. “What did you say?” Hyungwon look at you and smiled, “Nothing. Hey, how about let’s just chill and remove all of these negative thoughts, okay?” He was right, you had to calm yourself first before proceeding in making your project.

You nodded, making Hyungwon finally let go from the hug and ruffle your hair. The thought of him being nice to you made you feel giddy on the insides, which was weird but it felt nice. 

The days went on and the two of you got closer and closer to each other. Laughing at each other, watching movies, taking naps together, and even brainstorming with each other was a already a thing for the two of you. No matter how much you’ve hated him in the past months and years, everything changed in a snap.

Hyungwon wasn’t that arrogant compared to before. He was nice around you but there were also times when he goes back to his arrogant nature. Despite the thought of you guys having fun, the two of you still thought of your projects. It was a good thing when the two of you planned to take photos of each other.

But the two of you promised to just surprise each other. No one knew what picture Hyungwon nor you used for the painting. 

It was already the second of week of semester when the two of you were almost finish with your artworks. “I bet you used that meme photo of mine.” Hyungwon said without ripping his eyes and hands off his canvas. You scoffed and replied, “As if I’d use that, I might get an F.”

Hyungwon bursts out laughing and exclaimed, “What would you do if I used a meme photo of you?” This was the only thing that made you rip your eyes off your canvas and yell. “Hey! I’ll skin you alive if you use any of my meme photos.” 

Your threat wasn’t scary enough for Hyungwon. He stuck his tongue out at you and continue painting you using coffee. That was the last time the two of you spoke to each other as both of you were immersed with your work.

Time ticked and it was already past seven when the two of you were finally finished with your projects. “Finally!” you groaned as you stretched your aching limbs. Hyungwon did the same and sighed, “I’m so hungry.” 

Grrrrrrrr. The two of you looked at each other after hearing both of your stomach growl in hunger, the two of you burst out laughing. “Oh glob, let’s just order tangsuyuk and jjajangmyeon.” Without any further arguments, Hyungwon ordered what you said and ended it right away.

“When should we show each other our paintings?” He asked, plopping his whole body on to your couch while stretching every single limbs he has. “Hmm…. how about during dinner?” you suggested while tapping your lower lip with your index finger.

“Alright.”


“Waaaahhh, look at this baby.” you beamed as you showed Hyungwon your well-mixed jjajangmyeon. “Baby? You’re going to eat your freaking child?” Hyungwon looked at you like you’re some kind of a cannibal. You rolled your eyes and ignored his remark.

“Let’s eat!” The two of you started to dig in, slurping the greasy noodles with all your might and plopping a tangsuyuk in your mouth once in a while. “Oh! Before we show each other our paintings, we should have an introduction.” Hyungwon looked at you with his cheeks puffed, filled with the black bean noodles.

“Ohkay.” Hyungwon already knew what he’s going to say and he was confident about going first, removing the pressure off your shoulders. As soon as he gulped down his drink, he stood up and wiped his mouth with a some wipes. 

Carrying his covered canvas and stand, he placed it in front of you and flashed a cheeky grin. “Welcome to my exhibition. I am Hyungwon da Vinci and I’ll be showing you my greatest masterpiece of all times.” His hands met the cloth t, that was draped over his painting and pulled it off of it. 

On the painting, you saw yourself smiling really wide with two cups on your hand. It was an impressive artwork as it was really detailed. “This, my lady, is a masterpiece that I’ll always be proud of. This is a painting of someone whom I’ve been watching since the day she arrived on our school. Look, you can see that she’s in her natural habitat, hogging all of the coffee– Just kidding, just kidding.”

You shot him a glare which made him smile. “Ever since the professor announced that she was going to be my partner, I felt that the heavens were on my side, telling me that it’s my chance to be with this person. It was quite shocking for me to hear about her side but that was something for me to embrace and accept wholeheartedly.”

Hyungwon never rip his eyes off of you. “This girl is someone who’ve made my heart run wild whenever I see her, even if she’s just walking towards me or even if she’ll roll her eyes at me, someone who’ve made me feel butterflies for the first time.” You froze on your spot when you heard every single word he said.

Your heart started beating like crazy, and you’ve got to admit, you’ve already fell for him. Hyungwon smiled and continued, “I know this may sound really cheesy but I’ve never met a goddess in my entire life before I laid my eyes on her. She was the ocean and I was the boy who loved the waves but I was completely terrified to swim..”

“But something made me gather up all the courage to stand here in front of her and tell her how much I love her. [y/n], I know all of this is unexpected but I just wanted to tell you how much I love you and how much you’ve literally changed me into someone whom I never thought of changing into…”

The whole room was silent, the only thing that you could hear was the sound of you breathing, and also Hyungwon’s. Your heart was beating really loudly, you were speechless by Hyungwon’s sudden confession.

“And I wanted to ask you if you would you do the honors in becoming my girlfriend?” Hyungwon knelt in front of you, his hands held yours and his lips tugged into a smile. Noticing that you’ve been quiet all this time, he panicked and stuttered, “Y-you don’t have to a-answer right away, I-I can w-wait–”

Placing a finger on his lips, you smiled and pulled him up. You pulled him towards your painting and showed him what you’ve painted. It was him looking at you with that loving look he always had whenever he looked at you.

“I don’t know why but I hated you because of how arrogant you were… but you proved me wrong for thinking of you that way. Throughout the days, I’ve learned how to love you and yes, I feel the same way as you do even though we’ve been spending time together for just how many days.”

Hyungwon looked at you with a shock look which made you chuckle. “And yes, I would love to become your girlfriend, Hyungwon.” You poked him on the cheeks, snapping him back to his senses. Without any warning, he engulfed you into a tight hug.

“I-is this for real?” He asked with eyes sparkling with hope. You nodded your head and smiled. “Yes, silly.” He spun you around, unable to control his feelings. “This is the best day ever!” 

The two of you ended up on the couch, laughing your hearts out as you were on top of Hyungwon. Looking at each other with loving gazes, Hyungwon lifted his head and stopped as his face was just inches away from yours.

“I love you, [y/n].” He whispered with a smirk plastered on his face. You bopped his nose and whispered back, “I love you too, Hyungwon.” In just seconds, his lips met yours. As soon as the two of you pulled away, a thought hit you right away.

“Oh! I haven’t finish my noodles!”  

Ari’s 2 Year Re-Birthday a.k.a Halloween 2016

As I mentioned in my last post, I have hit my 2-year mark of being on Hormone Replacement Therapy. I celebrate this day as a second birthday. It marks the beginning of the period in my life when gender dysphoria no longer had its horrific grip on me. (I still deal with it at times of course, but HRT is a life saving treatment. This is truly my Re-Birthday :)

A year ago, I was in a situation where I was still getting used to living on my own and I was just starting to be able to be in public while letting the walls down and just being myself. That year, I spent my Re-Birthday alone and posted some costume pics on Tumblr about it. While I was grateful to have the outlet of Tumblr at the time and you all sent me encouraging messages of support.. I also vowed to myself that next year would be different. I promised myself that I would have a group of friends that knew only the real me to celebrate this special day with me. This year that happened. It did take effort on my part. I had to be intentional about being more social. If you followed me for a long time, you know that I started going to meetup groups. I went to a Dungeons and Dragons meetup first and there I made two amazing new friends who I visit with weekly now. I also joined a women’s group on meetup. This meetup in particular is just incredible. They accepted me into their fold and I have made several friendships through that group. The events are always a blast even though some of them take me out of my “comfort” zone :)

I am so grateful to be in the position I am in now, where I have new friends that just know Ari and accept her and like her for who she is. I am actually crying a little while writing this because I remember how I felt last year and how worried I was that I would be feeling alone for a very, very long time. Sure I have family members that still love me but they struggle greatly to accept me for who I am.

But.. on to the pics of the celebration! This is a happy occasion!

My friends are amazing when it comes to costumes. I was at first planning on going as Counselor Troi from Star Trek TNG. However, there is a serious lack of costumes out there for her. There is an off-color short dress that really does not come close to matching her outfits. There is the standard TNG uniforms but I did not want to look androgynous in any way for this outing ;)

So, I went with a Dr. Carol Marcus costume that I found online. I also got a blond wig, but ultimately I decided not to use the wig. I was worried it would be too hot as this was going to be a bar crawl and long night. Also, the wig framed my face poorly and reminded me of the time when I was desperately trying to grow my hair out. I was able to snap a few cute pictures with the wig, but trust me it only looked cute in those pics as that camera angle worked the best for the look. Pics from the side view and such made me look like I was wearing a child’s wig. I decided I could just be a Science Crew Member from the reboot universe :) Science Officer Ari reporting for duty, Sir!

Also, after shopping at several stores with my daughter I found some futuristic looking earrings at Charming Charlie that I thought were perfect. You can see those in one of the pics.

Anyway, here are photos both with the wig and without, followed by pictures from one of the most fun nights I have had in recent memory :)

I could not find a “phaser” so I bought a mini, but very loud toy laser gun from World Market..

My purse almost looks like that side bag that Dr. McCoy used to carry, doesn’t it??


Lens flare pic! :) lol

One last note about this night, I had some real fear leading up to it. As a transgender woman, despite my best efforts, I still fear being called out by someone in public. In particular I still have that uneasy feeling when I need to use the restroom. Being Halloween, with many non-transgender men dressing as women.. it amplified this fear. Once again all of my fears were unwarranted. In fact, as I was about to leave the restroom at one of our many stops on our pub crawl, a random young woman said to me, “Hey are you..” she paused and I took in a breath.. “Star Trek??” Lol! Her wording was funny, but she was just trying to confirm that she “got” my costume. I said, “Yes!” She responded, “I LLLove it!” As you can imagine that was great for me to hear ;) I simply smiled and told her thank you because I honestly was not sure what her costume was supposed to be so I said nothing about it! 

I hope you all have an amazing Halloween. If you are in a place where you wish you could make some new friends please make a direct effort to do so. You will find them!

My goal in sharing my transition is to represent transgender people in the positive light that we all deserve. Re-blogs are always okay if they are for this purpose, but if you are a fetish blog or fetish website then I want nothing to do with you and you do not have my permission to use my images.
