i really like helping people out

now that the “party” is over and sana doesn’t have to fear her parents finding out about her letting alcohol into their house, and the party that took place there, i think that this is going to be a good learning experience for her. because what would’ve hurt sana the most had they found out would’ve been knowing that they felt like their own daughter had disrespected them and their home, knowing that they were disappointed in her. she knows she could’ve really hurt her parents there, these two people who mean so much to her, much much more than any of the russ stuff. and hopefully this will help (it’s a process) her realize that there are compromises that shouldn’t be made, that she shouldn’t let anyone or anything make her feel like she has to make

Love how Elias helped Sana out of a possibly huge family argument. I love him in general; it's super obvious that he really loves his sister and wants to protect her and wants to make sure she's enjoying herself (I absolutely loved how he got her to go to the fy faen party in episode one - their entire text conversation was so great). Idk it's nice to see them together cause western society only ever tells you how muslim women are looked at as housewives and that's it. Clearly he doesn't. 👼🏼

Hellooooo anon!!!
Wow, you really read my mind. I agree on everything. And yeah, that’s literally what Skam does: breaking all the stereotypes. He really loves his sister and wants the best for her, let’s not forget “I don’t want people to hate on you”. He’s protective and caring. He really rushed to help her tiding up the house and getting those girls out. Even if Sana most of the time is like “there are many things I don’t tell you, Elias” or “how much do you think I’d gain if I sold Elias organs” she loves him so much. They love each other so much, it’s just brotherhood. The Bakkoush rulezzzz

whats your opinion on introverted artists? are a lot of your classmates also quiet? im a shy artist and im not sure if i'd be able to make it in the industry, since i heard disney and pixar love hiring outgoing, spontaneous, quirky people for animating and such

I’d say I’m introverted myself, but I’m sure you can still be nice to work with as one! I feel like the experience of working with other artists on projects at university/art school kinda helps you break out a bit and become more confident in your work and how to work with others, or at least that’s been my case. I still get exhausted socialising and find it really difficult to talk and present in front of others but it’s all part of the experience yknow, and it’s gotta be done, especially as an animator as that’s a very social artform (very difficult to make an animated short without other people to help!)

My class is pretty big, we have our share of confident and shy people. Obviously the more confident people tend to stick together as it’s easy to find someone who’s work and attitude you like if they’re very vocal about it, but you can still chug along as a shy animator. It’s harder because it’s more difficult to find others and form teams, but possible. When you’re working within your passion and constantly surrounded by people, you tend to get used to talking to others as you’re just talking about your passion, yknow. Like I’d find it hard to have a chill conversation with someone I don’t really know but if they asked me my opinion on something or for advice, I’d have no trouble talking to them.

I’m rambling but I guess what I’m trying to say is, don’t worry about being introverted, we’re all different in our little ways, and being in the productive buzzing environment with other artists tends to help you come out of your shell anyway. It’s true, companies are more drawn to outgoing and loud people because it’s a social art, they want people who will be pleasant to work with as well as get the job done well, but you can still be fun and pleasant to work with without being extroverted. Just smile, believe in yourself and your work, and treat others well!

Like… it’s really not hard to just make some changes to your behavior as a customer? I went into another chain pet store today and I:

1. Faced anything I picked up to look at, put it back right where I found it

2. didn’t leave trash anywhere like a gremlin

3. put my cart back in the cart area inside the store after I’d taken my purchase to my car

4. Was kind and polite to the cashier and greeted the woman that offered to help me

And it really did not take that much more effort on my part but it saved some employee the hassle of running out to the cart corral to fetch my cart when he has 1001 other things to do, etc.

Like who is honestly going to argue ‘It should totally be socially acceptable to walk into a retail store, treat people like shit, leave trash everywhere and mess up all the product’

Because hey that’s what the employee’s are getting paid for right?

I don't understand why "Gender is a social construct" and "making new genders mean you believe in gender" are opposite. Like, Time is a social construct but we need it to survive in our world. Gender is kinda the same way. It's fake, but it helps us understand our world better. that's why it's a spectrum. i dunno, i just figured out i'm a demiboy and are lost on the anti-Nb arguments

Mod ember here!

Absolutely.

It’s how we’ve come up in the world. It’s how we’ve programmed each other. That’s not going to change so easily. I just, as a NB, I would like more understanding and just empathetic reasoning in peoples minds. That’s all I want, you know?

I’m really proud of you for finding out your gender. It gets better, I promise.

im honestly SO SO SO happy for harry that he gets to choose these intimate venues and expose his music in the exact way he wants to and i am in general very excited about his solo journey but i can't help being a lil angry at these tiny ass venues....... like bub....... already 10x more people liked his ig post than people that can attend :( :( :(

I get where you’re coming from, but even if I was to still miss out on getting tickets to see him, I’m still going to be glad he gets to do this tour the way he wants to. An amazing show in an intimate venue is so fantastic and I’m really happy for him.

If you need help writing one of your macaron fighters as autistic, I have Aspergers and I'd gladly come off anon to answer any questions you have, if you'd like! Love seeing artists willing to represent autism in their stories ❤

That would be super appreciated! I’ve read posts from tumblr’s autistic community and I’ve interacted with people on the autism spectrum before but I never really got to talk about it with them a lot. It would help me out a lot if you could share your experience!

anonymous asked:

Can you please pray for me? I'm really struggling with depression and it's taking a its toll on me. And prayer that I can feel God's presence/closeness? I would so appreciate this. Thank you xx

Of course, dear! Just a reminder, it’s a sign of incredible maturity and humility to seek professional support in a time like that. Of course, the Lord’s incomparable support but God uses other people to serve and help you, too. Don’t be afraid to reach out. I’ll be praying. God bless you x

Hello, M! I've run into an issue with my writing-blog-in-progress. I recently discovered the pen name I've been considering (which is really just my first and middle name) is actually the name of a popular Playboy model. I've been considering going the initials route like you did, but unfortunately, my last name is generally unpronounceable. So I'm really disappointed, because I wanted to use my real name or some variation of it. Advice on finding a new pen name?

I think if people can learn to pronounce Dostoevsky they can learn to pronounce your name (whatever it is). A really unique surname might actually make you stand out, and you can always put a phonetic pronunciation somewhere on your site to help people out. So maybe don’t give up on that just yet! Aside from that my suggestion would be to maybe look for something that has personal significance for you, so it doesn’t feel like you had to just pick something at random. Maybe your mother’s maiden name, or the name of the street you grew up on, or something along those lines. Beyond that I’d just advise you to avoid anything that’s too clever or punny or fandom-related because while that may seem like a great idea right now, it may turn out to be really embarrassing down the line. 

Good luck!

Not sure why but I would really love for Aaron to help Rhona when it all comes out, not sure why but I always loved their interactions. Aaron would understand that she doesn't want to be pitied and I would love Robert to just be in awe of how supportive Aaron is for someone else. I think it would be quite an interesting dynamic, especially if people question it as Pierce seems to have duped everyone. I can imagine Lisa being the same, they could have their own little support group, and get help

I would also like that, to let Rhona have someone who understands. Like he did with Laurel. It’d be good to show that relationship is still there with Rhona and Aaron and not forgotten…although it does tend to happen that when they interact something bad happens but never mind…still. She needs support, whoever the source.

Associate member here. I've been thinking about becoming a full member, and I'd really like to, but I have some concerns I'm hoping you can help me with? I've heard about these pool parties people keep talking about, and I'm worried that I won't fit in at them, because I'm really phobic about deep water. Am I just blowing things out of proportion, or will people think I'm lame if I just hang out poolside and don't fully participate?

Don’t worry, that’s an inside joke. You’re not required to be able to swim or submerge yourself in water. “Poolside” is literally all that’s ever going to be required. All watersports are optional at The Sharing, rest assured.

Mang, i need an art group

I need an art support group. I want a group of art-loving people that want to improve along w/ me and we just, help eachother and work off eachothers energy. Y’know? Like… I wish I were more sociable because maybe I’d find this naturally? but I really struggle with talking to other people and reaching out- but if there was an art group where talking about art is like talking about the weather, maybe then it’ll be a little easier? *MASSIVE SHRUG* 

I might look into starting something like that? even if it doesn’t work out? idk!

There’s gotta be some people out there that feel like me so..who knows right?

okay here’s something that’s been rly irking my nerves. it’s 2am and not many people will see this but I ain’t afraid of reblogging it in the morning.

this goes for all fic writers, but im speaking from my personal experience right now - if you like something, please review it.

it doesn’t have to be long or even that thought-out (helps if it is, but I won’t be that picky.) ive been annoyed because I get such a small amount of feedback on my chapters of dbg (NOT to demean the comments I do get - I sincerely love you all,) but Ive been getting very few reviews.

But then when I dare to take more than a few days to update, people are blowing me up asking me where the next chapter is. and it’s not really fair to me to keep producing without reciprocation.

reviews make me REALLY happy. They don’t take long, and they make me feel noticed for my work. I write all this for free, and it’s literally all I ask.

Just freakin tell me how the chapters make you feel as we go along. Thank you and goodnight😘

11. What’s a thread you’d like to do in the future?

Actually- I just got 2 asks for IC/Canon introduction prompts and I am excited to do them. I have a very hard time getting comfortable RPing with people in game from a place of unfamiliarity. So to start out here really could help me. I am very much looking forward to a thread or two that gets Yuri more known associates/friends because she has a wedding coming up in her future (Unbeknownst to her) and I want to provide her with people to -actually- invite to said event. :3c

Thank You for Inquiring! I am following 300+ people so I try to send asks in return if/when I can, but by all means if you ever post a prompt just tag me in it and I’ll happily send an ask or two! :) I enjoy reading other threads and ask/answers as much as being asked them. *hugs* @sibutum

@lollipop-2014 replied to your post: man i feel like this used to be a really helpful blog and i’m not…

If your ever looking for new mods ide love to be a part of this blog

So I went on your blog to check out the sort of stuff you’re posting and like I really wouldn’t be comfortable taking on a mod who supports stuff like this? https://lollipop-2014.tumblr.com/post/159914750802/what-about-intersex-people-women-with-pcos-where The OP (idk if you follow her, but you did reblog it from her directly) is a pretty obvious TWERF if you take a look at her blog, and even if you didn’t look at her blog at all, the post itself is pretty laden with. You know. That intense, intense cissexist attitude that tends to be the marker of transmisogynistic feminism.

I know TWERFs can do that thing where they list what sort of intersex people they do and don’t consider “female” and act like that’s validating and uplifting intersex women, and I guess it might be pretty convincing if you don’t know a lot about trans issues, but they’re misgendering people, assuming they can speak for every intersex person’s experiences, violently excluding and denying trans women, and like… look, either you intentionally agree with that sort of transphobic drivel or you really, really need to learn more about trans issues so that you can watch out for that stuff in the future. This blog never has and never will support transphobic attitudes. Tbh I don’t remember us ever having had a cis mod. (Not that I’d be opposed to a cis mod so long as they were intersex, but just saying.) If you’re not both prepared and able to support trans people 100%, this blog really isn’t the place for you, as a reader or a contributor.—mod D

IMPORTANT QUESTION. Vampires aren't suppose to enter a premise without being invited right? What if a hermit vampire was living in his falling apart old castle and some fuck bought it as a "fixer upper", would the vampire just glitch out on to the lawn or would he be okay since he lived there before?

Okay so this would depend on where you are in the world, and whether or not they had squatters rights (can’t be evicted and can apply for legal ownership of place once they have been there for X amount of years) but I mean, the dude owns the place, even if it is a run down mess he was still there first and there’s probably some ancient land ownership law which can’t be overwritten by modern laws (you find all sorts of weird things are still technically legal cause no one bothered to update the books since 1645) so basically whoever just bought this castle to turn it into a modern fixer upper, congrats, you also just bought yourself a vampire and he’s not going anywhere.

(Also now I kind of want to write this where a family buys it to turn it into a hotel/wedding venue and the kids find the vampire in the attic and he ends up being the weird uncle who gets roped into hilarious wedding related shenanigans?? Like 


“Okay yes fine, you can host weddings here, but registrar only, no religious ones.” 
“But Theolodious, why?”
“Really Sharon, really, do I have to spell it out for you. Really.”

*

“We really should increase the lighting for photographs, what about skylights?”
“No.”
“But—”
“How about I just set all of you on fire while you’re trying to sleep.”

*

“Please, for the love of god, please don’t let people throw confetti or rice, I’m begging you.”

*

“Okay what’s our final head count for the night?”
“107.”
“Are you sure?”
“Did I fucking stutter Steve?”

*

“Uncle Theo, why does the groom have “help me” on the bottom of his shoes, why is everyone laughing?.”
“Because small one, humanity has failed collectively as a species and heteronormativity is a constructed lie designed to oppress over half the population for not conforming to arcane and chauvinistic ideals put in place by dead scholars who have long since turned to dust and have no place influencing modern society.”
“…”
“Permanence is an illusion.”

*

“Madame, flattering as your offer is for a quickie, you’re not my type.”
“What is your type then?” ;) ;) ;)
“O negative.”

*

“Whoo, what a day, I could eat a horse.”
“Same.”
“…”
“…well obviously I’m not going to.”

*

“Theo…are you…are you crying?”
“Yes.”
“You big softie, I never thought someone like you would cry at a wedding.”
“…I’ve lived a long life, Sharron. People come and go, the christening you bless will be the funeral you mourn in less than a century. But people keep saying “I love you”, that has to count for something.”

I see all sorts of people interpreting that bit of Genji lore about “Overwatch giving him enhancements once he agreed to help them” as Overwatch extorting him into joining their crew and were just going to let him die otherwise but like… it’s totally possible they gave him some kinda regular utilitarian cyborg body and he was like “fuck that normie noise, I want knife ankles and a shuriken dispenser” and they were like “uh, yeah, we can’t really justify those upgrades if you plan to be a civilian when you walk out of this room.”

Tumblr, I need your help

This post is different from my normal content, but I’m desperate here.

When my little sister was five and I was nine, we each bought a stuffed animal, a puppy dog. Mine is brown, and hers was cream-colored, and they were great comforts through moving, and growing up in an abusive household, and everything else that comes with that.

My sister lost hers at camp several years ago, and she’s been sad about it ever since. I’ve looked everywhere: ebay, amazon, thrift stores, rummage sales, talked to people on facebook, contacted the camp and the people that went there, tried to find the toy manufacturer (out of business), I attempted to contact the local store where we bought it…nothing.

I really want to help my sister here, and find her stuffed animal, or at least, one just like it. Again, this was a huge comfort to her through so much stuff that happened. It was always by her side, and it made her feel so happy, and since it’s been gone, I know she feels like something’s missing. She loved it so much.

I know that my only tool left to find it at this point is word-of-mouth. So if you would, could you spread this to as many people as you can? Put it on facebook if you want, screenshot it and send it to your friends, I don’t mind. I just want to help my little sister get her comfort animal back.

It’s a 12″-ish stuffed puppy dog, and the brand is Caltoy. Here are some pictures of mine, so you can see what hers is supposed to look like:

The only differences are that hers was a light yellow-cream color, and I think the ribbon on hers was blue (though I could be wrong about that).

More specifics:

It was sitting up, and had no tail. It was all the same color like this one, no dark ears/paws/etc, just the dark nose. It was made by Caltoy in or around 2003.

I would really like to find this for my sister, so that she can have that comfort again, and she definitely needs it right now. 

Please share it as much as you can, to friends or followers, whoever you can. I will be so grateful to all of you who help. <3
