I woke up in a panic because I dreamt that other work peeps had gone in and fucked up the social media drama I’ve been handling all week.
And 99.99% of my brain knows that it was just a dream and all is well, but there’s that other 0.01% that whispers ‘well, you did leave early yesterday, so maybe’, and I am strongly considering going into the office early just to make sure everything is fine.
for the anon who asked for a groupchat celebrity au with twitter. ik this isn’t exactly what you asked for, but i will do a proper celebrity au one day. probably. dedicated to my wife @jiilys bc she deserves all this and more

Hey, I gotta ask just to make sure, but are you okay? There's a lot going on and a lot of people bashing on you and stuff, and I just want to make sure you're okay. I mean, I know you might not be but maybe try taking a deep breath and thinking about something that makes you happy? I know the internet can be a frustrating place, but just remember you have a lot of patient and kind people supporting you!
People does not care about me.
-I’m going through finacial issues at home.
-I need to check myself with a doctor for personal health issues
-I’m solving an unfair copyright strike
-I’m trying to work on the animation
-Handling my social media
-Dealing with random hate
-dealing with people that give me crap for not empathize with the kid that stole my animations cus “i sent hate towards him and the poor kid doesn’t deserve it” (apparently I deserve it)
Oh but, “Hey cami used a no-no word that is forbidden in northamerica!! We should shame her for doing that and call her an asshole! How dare she!! How arrogant can she get geez!”
I’m just a youtuber to those people.
I’m not a person anymore.
I’m just a… public figure? That… has to be perfect for her fans, she has to be the example of a perfect human being and if she is not how we want her to be we all shame her for it.
No-Profit LGBT+ and Women’s Custom Tailoring Service
I haven’t been using tumblr much recently, but for those who do follow and haven’t read it on other social media, I am now working as a measurer for a Hong Kong tailor and acting as a tailoring agent, specifically helping LGBT+ people and women in the UK (London) who have difficulty getting clothes that fit them.
Right now I am working pro bono, and since I am not taking any profit (and therefore don’t need to factor in tax), this is an opportunity to get MTM clothing at much cheaper than possible otherwise (since I don’t charge anything but have access to industry prices).
Those interested, shirts are between 20-50 pounds, suits are anywhere from 100-400 pounds, depending on tailor and material. Doesn’t include shipping, alterations, and other logistics stuff like fit guarantee and so on.
Here are some photos of clothes I’ve gotten from the HK tailors. Not all of the mare from the tailors I will be using, and it took quite a few fittings and commissions to get the fit how I wanted it, but should give some indication as to what can be done.
Anyway if you or anyone you know might be interested shoot me a message and I’ll be happy to answer any questions. I’m also happy to help as a stylist/consultant in general for dressing in menswear and buying suits, alterations, and so on, which might not be readily available.
I’m happy to give general advice and potentially help those overseas to get shirts or even suits made, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you don’t live in the UK/London either, but I will have to make it clear that without a fitting with someone who is experienced, it’d be more difficult to get a suit/jacket that fits very well.
i started writing when i was 15 – i wrote bad teenage poetry. 14 years later i have a comic coming out nationally with my wife @lisasterle and during the day i’m the editor/writer of a local news website.
i never dreamed i’d be able to call myself a writer when i was working at white castle, or tj maxx, or when i was selling dildos at a sex store or having an emotional breakdown in the bathroom of a chipotle because i just fired another employee after 9 months of 80 hour weeks. i never dreamed i’d be able to call myself a writer after i was laid off after 3.5 years working for a startup doing their social media, or when i was making ice cream or when i worked as a janitor. work has been my life.
i didn’t go to college and i never thought i’d get to say that i make my living, pay my rent, feed my dog, cook my wife dinner and buy beer with the money i make from writing.
the truth is though that the last stuff doesnt matter – i mean it does. yeah, i get it. but in the end it is about a mentality. i kept doing this because i loved it. it took 14 years of stupid hard work. of not writing for MONTHS, of taking breaks and then destroying myself and then beating dark souls for the fifth time then writing some more then putting 2,000 hours on dota 2 then writing some more.
life sucks, and it is hard, and things are unfair but at the end of the day if you do what you love, and create something and are able to own that thing, and be yourself you’ll find happiness. it just might take a while.
I just realized that even though Penny and Hugo are both in the social media career, they are pursuing different tracks. Hugo does public relations and Penny is an internet celebrity, which means I have to keep them in two different moods so they can work from home effectively.
the morning after I killed myself I woke up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee. I poured myself a cup of coffee and enjoyed it while watching the sun rise.
the morning after I killed myself my mother and father laid in bed holding each other through most of the day, even after fighting cancer, my father said he’s never been so sick.
the morning after I killed myself my cats put on a show that would always make us laugh, but no one was up for laughing, not even me.
the morning after I killed myself the little twin boys from across the street came over to play. they’re only 9, my parents didn’t have the heart to tell them.
the morning after I killed myself the birds sang, the wind whistled, and the dogs barked. the sounds I love in the morning, the sounds that comfort me. the sounds I will never hear again.
the morning after I killed myself I realized high school, friends, boyfriends, bullies, social media, work, pain, money, heartbreak, assholes, and everyday annoyances were no reason to end your life. I realized too late.
the morning after I killed myself I enjoyed the simple little things in life. the things you couldn’t imagine living with out but even so you don’t appreciate as much as you should.
the morning after I killed myself I wanted to be alive more than ever.
