i worked super hard on it

So lemme tell y'all a story:

I was in 10th grade honours English. I loved my teacher - she was super cool, but didn’t take any shit from anyone. During our time with her, she was going through a rough divorce.

Our teacher had developed this system: if we were good, she’d add “time” to our class, with each “time” being worth ten seconds, so we had to work hard. That meaning, she would give us a free period after we’d built up the exact time that a period extended to be. It was an earned privilege, and we always did our best to try and obtain it. Hell, playing puzzle games and reading was way more fun than a test or worksheet!

We were reading Animal Farm, a book my mom had given to me when I was ten bc she knew I loved to read and enjoyed anything that was thought-provoking. I’d read it then, and again later in my parochial middle school. Living in a big city, public schools aren’t well-funded, and I was lucky to have all my close family scrape together cash for a good education. Needless to say, I was rather familiar with the book.

Now back to the system! Our teacher had implemented a rule that every morning (she taught my first period class) we wood stand up and recite the commandments of animalism. We’d all try our hardest to do it perfectly, lest “time” be taken off our class. But one morning, she was… cold.

My classmates who’d recited before me were all told to sit down and stop reciting, because they were “wrong.” Knowing that, I was confused, as was everyone else. Yet, we all kept trying the same thing. She let the first few people finish. Then, she let people get partially through before she’d utter, “wrong” or something of the sort and deduct our hard-earned time.

It finally got to me; it was my turn. I stood up and started, and was immediately shut down by her. I was frustrated, to say the least. I replied after a second and told her that I was, indeed, right. She muttered for me to sit down. I refused, and by now she’d taken off twenty seconds. Everyone groaned, but I continued to disobey. Eventually, my classmates started telling me to just stop and it turned into yelling at me once I’d lost our hard-earned twenty minutes (meaning we had been halfway to a free period) as I continued to argue. Once we were in the negatives, people were literally yelling obscenities at me. They even yelled at her, blaming her divorce and period. Gross behaivour, mind you.

I didn’t stop.

The teacher said that she was going to call security and have me removed. I replied that it was a-okay with me to do so. I promptly walk out of the room and she followed up by telling me to wait in the hallway. I’d intended to walk to the office myself, but obliged figuring it was no matter to me.

I was in the hallway for about a minute before she rushed out and gently grabbed me by the shoulders. I was rightly confused. She gasped, and stammered out that she had never imagined it would happen. Why was she suddenly not being so ruthless? Why was she flabbergasted? Well, apparently what she’d “wanted” was for us to all fail. That it was a lesson, and she’d have given back the “time” she had removed. It was all about “knowing” what was coming, and how fascism meant that the rules could change at any time, without your knowledge and consent, but you could still be punished for it. She told me that she’d called security, and told them if they saw me in the hall during that call, to excuse me. Nobody had done that before. Apparently, throughout her decades of teaching, not one student had done that. They had all caved and sat down eventually.

You can be that person. In something that matters to us all. It’s not fun, but when has fighting for what’s right ever been easy?

Saving and Backing Up Work Guide

Things my job and college taught me about saving and backing up work:

  1. Iterative saves. ITERATIVE SAVES!!! Make a new save every work session. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Also make one once you complete an important step (save for final sketch, save for inking one character, save for inking bg, save for animating a hand, save for first pass of animation). That way in case you accidentally delete a layer or your file gets corrupted, YOU DON’T HAVE TO START OVER!! Also this is good for when clients go “oh you know what, I actually like the look of this one thing from like 4 exchanges ago, can you change it to that?” Also in case the power goes out midsave and corrupts the file. Note: Google Drive automatically does iterative saves for a lot of things (docs, images, spreadsheets, etc) which is SUPER nice
  2.  If you work at company or are freelance that sends work files, please for all that’s good in the world, MAKE A SAVE BEFORE YOU MERGE YOUR STUFF IN A DRAWING PROGRAM! Some poor sap (possibly you) a year from now is going to have to tweek something and you are going to make their life an absolute hell when they find you’ve merged everything.
  3. Save on a portable hard drive or an internal drive. Back that drive up at LEAST once a year onto a different drive or onto CDs/DvDs/Bluerays.
  4. Save on Google Drive and/or dropbox. Have it on a cloud SOMEWHERE in case you need it. Especially for school projects because you probably will forget your portable hard drive at least once the day an assignment is due.
  5. If possible, keep your Operating System (Windows and/or Linux) on a SEPARATE harddrive from where you save your work. JUST IN CASE your OS gets corrupted and you have to wipe windows. So get two drives, one for OS and your programs, another for your work and other stuff you don’t want to get accidentally wiped.
  6. I know this is stupid and most people will ignore it, but have a naming convention for files. This way it’s easier to find in case something goes wrong or you have to find a file 2years later for whatever reason. A quick and easy one, Client_Project_Descriptor_#. Example: I’m doing a color piece intended for print with a rocket for SpaceX and this is the 4th time I’ve sat to work on it, I might do something like: SpaceX_PrintColor_Rocket_4. If you want something more specific for the work session number, you could do a time date stamp like YYYYMMDDHHmm (Year, month, day, hour, minute). There’s lots of variations, but that’s the easiest one I’ve done.
  7. If you think about saving, save. If you’re working with other people, just saying “SAVE” out loud when you think about it. In school and at my job, a lot of people appreciated the reminder. This is especially appreciated if you notice something in your cube/side of the room flicker (an indicator that the power is about to turn off).
  8. LEARN THE CORRECT SHORT CUT KEYS FOR SAVING! This is handy if your computer is hooked up to a power backup. Some places ONLY have the computer towers attached to it AND NOT THE MONITORS. So using the shortcut key, is very important.
  9. Learn where programs save automatic backups and/or temp work files. If a program crashes, DO NOT IMMEDIATELY OPEN THE PROGRAM OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER IF YOU CAN. Google where the temporary files are kept, there may be a backup that way. This isn’t reliable and sometimes the file is partially corrupted, but this has saved my ass so many times with different programs
  10. Have a saving “ritual” when you’re done working. What I mean is: name properly, local save, cloud save, flattened/combine/viewable save (png, jpg, pdf, obj, fbx, ect).

Artist: Jeon Jungkook -BTS

This is my first Jungkook scenario, I hope you guys enjoy it and request yours ideas.

You were super tired after a really long day at college, eight thirty classes weren’t your thing but when that was the only choice you had you couldn’t say no. You were super glad that the day has ended, but being able to see your boyfriend after a long day was what pushed you through the day.

You were on your way to the Big Hit building where you knew Jungkook would be pratcing at, he was working hard like always and you knew he would still be there for a while, so you decided to go and hang out with him for a while since you guys haven’t hung out in a while due to his busy schedule and your classes.

You always got excited when you were in the building because you knew you were going to see your boyfriend and his members which always brought a smile to your face hanging out with them.

You were just looking around the practice rooms to see which room he was in, and when you finally found him a huge smile was brough on your face. You opened the door and went in, he was still practicing and the music was loud that he didn’t notice you. You were always playful when you were with him so you were trying to copy his dance moves to get his attention, and it worked. He noticed from the side of his eyes a movement and when he looked there you were trying to copy his dance moves which you were really bad at. It made him laugh seeing that sight. You dropped your bag to the side and went to him to give him a hug in which he had his arms open and ready for your hugs.

“I missed you” you said closely to his ear.

“I missed you more” he said and hugged you even tighter, his hug lasted long and you were kind of wondering if something was wrong, you guessed it was probably that he was tired from all the practice.

You guys were sitting on the floor and it was super quiet while you guys ate the snacks your brought with you for your and him to enjoy, Jungkook was being extremely quite when he usually has so much to talk about

“Jungkook are you okay” you asked

“Yeah” he said

“Are you sure” you asked again and he nodded but you didn’t believe him

“What’s wrong with my kookie” you said being cute and pinching his cheeks

“Drop it, it’s nothing” he said and raised his voice which surprised you

“Okay” you said in a defeated voice which made him feel guilty for raising his voice when you were just making sure he’s okay

“I’m sorry” he said and broke the silence, you didn’t say anything because you felt like he wasn’t just apologizing for raising his voice, so you let him continue.

“I’m sorry that I’m barely around, I’m sorry I’m not the perfect boyfriend that should treat you the way you deserve to be treated, I’m sorry I can’t take you on normal dates and show you off to everyone” he said and sighed that he said everything that’s been on his mind

“Baby, you don’t have to be sorry for anything, non of these things really matter to me, I don’t mind that we don’t go out on dates, to me as long as I get to see you and spend time with you is all I care about”

“But I was so shitty I didn’t even do anything special on Valentine’s Day for you” he said

“You got me flowers and a gift which you totally didn’t have to, you show you love me everyday I don’t need that one day” you told him, you held his hands trying to calm him down

“Baby, I don’t mind our indoor dates or our movie nights, their even better because we get to cuddle, so don’t worry about anything like that okay” you said and asked him, and he just nodded his head, but you looked at him giving him the look for him to answer.

“Okay” he said and broke in a smile at you trying to scold him. 

You got up which made him a little confused as to what you were doing, you plugged your phone in the stereo system and blasted their new song. 

“You promised you would teach me the choreography, come on” you said whining at him when he was giving you questioning looks.

 “But you look super tired” he said trying to reason with you.

 “Am not” you said and started jumping around to prove your point in which he broke out in laugher at your antics

“Fineee” he said and he always ended up agreeing to what you say. 

Jungkook ended up walking you home and him being the gentleman he is insisted on carrying your bag for you even when you told him it wasn’t heavy. You always loved those unplanned late, mini dates that you guys had, you didn’t have to dress up, you could just be yourself and not worry about anything. 

anonymous asked:

So, I was curious... when people talk about "seeing" spirits... could they mean during travelling or actually seeing them on this plane? I was curious whether psychic abilities work in a way of just having things appear during visualisation and travelling? or its just specifically seeing things on this plane.

Hi! I’m not super sure exactly what you are asking so here is my answer to what I think your question is ^-^

MOST people do not seem to see spirits on this plane, as if they were physical beings. This is a somewhat rare “gift” and from what I have heard, it is a hard gift to bear. I have in the past seen things physically and while my experiences were not frightening I am glad they are not a part of my everyday life.

In my opinion, when people say they “see” spirits they mean it in a metaphoric sense. Each spirit worker has such a unique experience with spirits, that instead of explaining the potential obscure and arcane way they communicate with spirits, that it is much easier to summarize it as, “I ‘saw’ a spirit.”

“Seeing” a spirit for me typically means you strongly visualize a being within your mind. This is actually not too hard to do and I think more people can gain this ability than they realize!

However, “seeing” a spirit could also be a vision of a nature scene combined with an emotion. It could be going to a different headspace and knowing you are in communication with another being. There are lots of ways to be in the presence of a spirit without “seeing” it in any visual manner. 

I will say that if you work on your third eye long enough and hard enough you may be able to start hallucinating. But that’s like…. not imo a great goal :) There is no real need to limit spirits to our physical perspectives when they can communicate in such tangible ways otherwise. And opening that door in your head can sometimes not be safe especially if you are neuroatypical.

I am disgusted with SM.

They have thrown away their groups. They have thrown away their fans. They have thrown away artists who have worked so hard just to be used for their own benefit.

If they can not manage the groups they have made then why are they debuting new groups? Super Junior, Girls Generation, F(x), Red Velvet, all just for a new group? Don’t get me wrong. I love all of their groups, NCT included, but they can’t just throw away the older groups. If they were going to just make them wait why not let them produce what they want? I am sure they have plenty of resources to make it happen. They are being lazy, neglectful, and utterly ignorant. It’s disrespectful to the artists, the fans, and the group as a whole.

Amber is fully capable of managing herself and making her own music. She has proved this. There are a number of talented individuals at SM who should not deal with their back and forth games. Stop pushing your artists when you won’t even give them the light of day. SM is so obsessed with their image and staying on top when they are already losing people they delved their time into. It is not a loss on SM’s part. It is a loss on the talented artists under they label. SM has wasted their time training, promoting, and their time. All for what? Just to throw them away.

SM, you will soon realize that creating all of these groups is useless if you are just going to neglect them. I guess that is their goal with NCT. To just dump all of their trainees in infinite groups until people can’t complain. It’s not hard to see that fact.

hystericalnoisemaker  asked:

Hi, I have been a follwer now for awhile but didn't really have any questions until now and it's related to your whole spirit talks(?). I'm not 100% sure if it's any spirits who like to talk to me or if it's just my voice hallucinations that irritates me, the thing is I can hear a voice say my name with a voice that sounds like my mother. And she says it's not her, you know? How can I really determent if it my head or actual gods or spirits, because I can't get any contact with them.

Hooboy so. The best tip I know of is to know oneself. Which as someone with AvPD and BPD and a super active maladaptive daydream world… I know this is an incredibly hard thing to do sometimes. Is it just imagination? Or is it substantial? And when knowing yourself is hard, how can you determine between them?

I’m not sure I have a reliable system worked out. I’ll be up front about that; I’m still working on this stuff a lot. One thing I learned just the other night that can help is to look at the circumstances of what was said vs what was currently going on in the brain. For instance, the other night I was relaxing and doing a very good job keeping my mind empty in a vaguely meditative state when suddenly I got the overpowering urge of “I need to talk to you” and a distinct sense of who was saying it too. As this didn’t match the relaxed idle state I was in I figured it might be something legitimate. When I did divination to ask what needed to be said, the urgency of the song I got matched what I had going on in my brain so I took it as valid. If I had been having a daydream where exciting or stressful things had been going on, I likely would have discarded that urge as mere imagination. 

Another thing to do is to keep track of the little things. Sometimes the most subtle signs are the most legit ones. When I first started trying to communicate with the spirits in my yard, I tried seeing if I could get a non-divination reply to a species identification. I got some sort of a small sensation when I though “elf” and when I did divination later, I got elf for the species identifier. It might have been nothing but it turned out to be an actual indicator of “hey dat’s me!” that I pretty much ignored until I got the divinatory result to back it up. I’ve had instances of this before where I had to double-check if I was being touched by a spirit or not. The sensations were so minor I was going to discount them but I decided not to just in case and it paid off.

A lot of this seems to be trial and error of wash, rinse, repeat. Pay attention to the little things. Keep note of them even if they seem insignificant. If you can, do divination to double-check and back up your feelings. If you can’t, I like to ask myself the following: Does it pose any harm if I assume this to be legitimate? If no, roll with it. If it could, then I play it safe and hold off on it. 

I hope this is a little helpful :x

Update time!

I finally cut my hair- and it doesn’t look awful! I’ve also been practicing not shortcutting randomly- which is a really hard thing to do. I barely focused on my school work on the surface! Now I’m supposed to be super alert all the time? What a drag!

Anyways. Once Babyteeth fixes me up with a tracker, I guess I’ll start porting on purpose. Angel is going to practice with me too, which will be cool. I’m kinda glad I’m not the only one that needs lessons!

Oh! And I made myself one of those purple sweaters I keep seeing other ‘Me”s wearing! Do I fit in yet?

I visited their bookmarks page (which has over 2k) and they range from good, ok, eh and i havent been able to find any below that. It just seems super rude? like why? whats the point of doing that. If the writer sees, it'll make them feel like shit if they see you write 'eh' next to something they worked so hard on. UGH

wooow that is hella shitty??? god. i’m sorry u had to see that. this isn’t really the same, but i realize on tumblr a lot of people like to have their own opinions regarding gifsets - they say a lot of shitty things, like “I DONT LIKE THIS CHARACTER WHY DID U GIF HIM” or “I dONT likE the wAy thiS Is cOLOReD”. whILE OF COURSE this makes me feel like shit, i try to look at it in a way that IT’S SO POPULAR THAT I HAVE HATERS

Kichijoji Dake ga Sumitai machi desu ka?

So I found a really awesome manga today???

It’s called “Kichijoji dake ga sumitai machi desu ka?” or, roughly, “The only town you want to live in is Kichijoji?” and is by Maki Hirochi

It’s about two sisters who work do real estate in Kichijoji, Tokyo

They’re both fat girls, but as far as I can tell so far, they aren’t fetishized or are the butt of a joke???

They’re both super cute, and drawn proportionally and realistically, seriously I can’t think of the last time I saw a manga with fat girls as the main characters/protagonists, or if I EVER have period. 

AND THEY LOVE METAL/HARD ROCK?!?!?

LIKE WOW IM IN LOVE!??

Also the stories are all just really sweet, it’s basically just the sisters helping people who come to their real-estate agency find the perfect home, like, it’s really cute and sweet and good? 

Also it has a live-action drama going on rn which is super exciting!

Basically, I don’t know if this story will get more popular or if the manga will get an English translation, but I was just super hyped about this and wanted to share ~ <3

I’ve been thinking about high school drarry for a while and then pillowcasey was like “HIGH SCHOOL AU” and then she was like “DRACO IN HARRY’S FOOTBALL JACKET” and I was like “do you want to kill me or was that unintentional”

So Harry forgot his jacket at Draco’s place on purpose last night, and Draco put it on and completely outed their relationship also on purpose, but he would never admit to that
