i'm really not very good at this

Little things you can do to feel better if you are trans and you can’t really transition right now

For guys

  • Baseball caps? Those are good.
  • Short haircuts. If anyone questions, say it’s for convenience.
  • For your neck: fang pendants (very badass). Or a dapper lil bowtie.
  • Big ass stompy boots.
  • Those cool belt buckles. You can get a basic one or something with a cool design (like a dragon!).
  • Don’t shave. Let your body hair grow. Unless you feel uncomfortable.
  • Buy some spicy-smelling perfumes or other cosmetics. Or if there is something that says “Forest” on it, this one is also good.
  • If you can, try some weightlifting. It will make your muscles better and release some of that sweet sweet testosterone. But remember, fat and skinny men are also very handsome, so if you can’t, don’t sweat it.
  • Eat plenty of protein for a testosterone boost. Also, zinc from seafood - like shrimp and salmon especially - will help that chemical magic. Leafy greens, pomegranate, coconuts, garlic also help. Watch out for soy and tofu! They raise estrogen. And raisins are great, but dried apricots are not.
  • Remember that no matter what you are 100% man (unless you are a demiguy/bigender, then you are 50% man or whatever it looks like for you, that is still very cool, and if you are genderfluid and currently a dude, that’s still very good and valid).

For gals

  • Kitten ear beanies are so pure and good (just like you).
  • Let your hair grow to a nice length. If anyone questions, say you found a new style.
  • For your neck: simple crystal pendants (very pretty). 
  • Crystal bracelets!
  • Lil ballet flats.
  • Shaving can make you feel a whole lot better. Remember - some cis girls also have to shave!
  • Just a little bit of lip balm goes a long way. Oh! And clear nail polish!
  • Sweet-smelling cosmetics are your best friend. You can probably get on eBay or in your local store a nice bottle of vanilla body mist.
  • Google some exercises for a bigger butt, if you want to try it. If you can’t, remeber less-curvy women are also beautiful.
  • Eat plenty of soy, flaxseed, sesame seed, dried apricots… I know that those give you a bit of extra estrogen. Apparently coffee can also do it? Getting estrogen from diet is harder. Just eat a lot of tasty fresh food. Remember to treat yourself.
  • Remember that no matter what you are 100% woman (unless you are a demigirl/bigender, then you are 50% woman or whatever it looks like for you, that is still very cool, and if you are genderfluid and currently a lady, that’s still very good and valid).

For nonbinary pals

  • Simple beanies.
  • Google “androgynous/unisex hairstyles”. Look how many cool options you have! You might tweak one to your needs, like make it longer, or shorter, or add some cool hair dye…
  • For your neck: scarves. They come in many colors and patterns, cover up your neck so you don’t get cold, also you can hide your neck bump or lack thereof.
  • Friendship bracelets!
  • Trainer shoes.
  • Baggy hoodies are really nice.
  • You can shave and don’t wear makeup. Or rock the beard and eyeshadow look. Or really, anything else.
  • Cosmetics? Citrus and lavender are considered unisex scents. You can also wikiHow to Make Perfume and mix some scents you like at home.
  • Exercise, if you are healthy enough to do it, is good. Try running and yoga. Remember, media sells us the myth that androgyny=thinness, but it’s bullcrap. Fat, curvy, muscular people can all be nonbinary and/or androgynous.
  • You can look up the guys and gals sections too. Maybe you will find something that helps you.
  • Remember that your identity is 100% valid and true, no matter what. Yes, any kind of identity. No matter if it’s a neutral void or a mix of everything, no matter if it’s stable or changes. It’s valid because you are valid.

So like I said I really enjoyed the newest SpiderMan movie. He was the only reason I forced myself to sit through Civil War and it was worth it. 

He’s so good and nice please give this boy a blanket.

I LOVE THIS ENDING. Also Hugo is really nice and i love how excited about his passion he is and that at the end he doesn’t hide it anymore and is just happy about it. Also his idea of a date with cheese and trivia is very cool !!!

Bonus : having Ernest actually not be a brat and showing he cares for his dad was pretty awesome too. Good added point for the grumpy teenager. 

I had a video chat with my datemate tonight and it was so nice talking to It after what seems like a Very Long time wiithout talking! I was just smiling the whole time seeing Its face and hearing Its voice. I was sharing a room with 3 people and 3 dogs so like… I had less than Ideal privacy but it was still a great chat and I just Love my datemate so much!!! 

I just had a really aggressive manic episode and now I feel like I’m on a rapid spiral down this is great

@ppl who are getting top surgery

I’m not going to make a long masterpost of dos and don'ts about post-op care for top surgery, there’s plenty of those, but I will say this:

BUY LIQUID VITAMIN E.

it’s not that expensive, you can find it bottled in the beauty department or in capsules by the vitamins.

What does it do? It softens your skin. After surgery, your skin is pulled extremely tight, painfully so, even a week after I couldn’t raise my arms very high because it pulled at the incisions. It prevents stretch marks, softens your skin, and helps reduce scarring

I finally got some today and it was instant relief, it’s just a thick oil and you can put on drops or puncture capsules to cover your skin in it, this is the most pain-free I’ve been since before the surgery

So just, if you’re getting that (or really any surgery that’ll result in really tight stitches or incisions), get some vitamin E

170717 Baekhyun fan account

OP met one of the professional gamer who was in Baekhyun’s team on the first round of SM Super Club League. 

“After the game ended, he (Baekhyun) thanked every single member and opponent member sincerely. He (the pro gamer) said after playing this game for more than ten thousand times, it was the first time he received thanks from a team member. He said he was really surprised by Baekhyun’s well manners.”

So the other day I spat out a Twitter thread where I headcanoned about Jack as a biker. I guess I should share it over here too.  Enjoy.

Jack liked old cars as a kid, but he liked motorcycles better. Loved the freedom, the sense of not being sheltered. Having no buffer between him and the world.

Bikes can be dangerous even when you’re a safe driver. People are stupid on the road, and they don’t watch out for bikers. And Jack loved that too. The risk and the self-reliance, having his fate in his own hands.

But then he wasn’t always a safe driver. A bike can be a real exciting and fun way to court death, and on his bad days he kinda did.  Rode like he was racing his own shadow. Wove through heavy traffic on the freeways and took the curvy back roads like a roller coaster.  Looking back he feels stupid about it. He’s always ready with advice for young bikers on how to be sane and not take people down with you.  But back then, sometimes it was his only outlet for the feeling of being trapped.

He likes all kinds of bikes, and he does have a soft spot for the speed and responsiveness of sport models, but his faves are the classics.  The weight, the lines, the feeling of sturdy rebuildable invincibility. Sexy.  He’s always on the lookout for a classic frame that’s still in good shape because when he can’t ride, he restores.

Torbjorn lets him use one of his less ridiculous workshops, and even joins Jack sometimes.  It’s kind of a bonding exercise with them.  Sometimes they’ll restore the things back to their original build, and sometimes they get…creative.  Between the two of them, they do enough rebuilding that there’s no way Jack can keep them all.  It becomes a charity thing.  They auction them off for fundraisers. Motorcycle wonks can be real snobs, and custom bikes rebuilt by Overwatch heroes are quite a collector’s item.

Jack organizes charity rides too sometimes, even if he usually can’t participate.  He seldom has the time, and anyway having a high-profile celebrity along just complicates things a lot of the time.

So mostly he keeps the biker thing low key, in Overwatch. He has other outlets for the crazy risk-taking these days.

Holy crap though, the way he rides.

So the thing about a bike is you drive it with your body.  A man with strength & reflexes beyond human can take a bike beyond human limits.  A couple of the other SEP subjects liked to ride too, and Jack used to go out with them.  But few others are both willing or able to keep up with him. Although Reinhardt probably has been known to. The man does work with a rocket strapped to his back.

(And then there’s the part where he has a secret fantasy of Gabe fucking him over the back of a bike.  But that’s for another time.)

One of my art assignments was to do a scratchboard piece based off of a comic page, and this one’s mine, because, you know, I really like Over the Garden Wall.

some people make me feel so worthless, it hurts sometimes, I just wish to sleep for over a week without dealing with anything.

Robert Downey Jr.’s been on a pedestal with me since I was a very young man. I’ve just always admired him and been a fan. And I’ve said for years and years and years that I hope the crossover happened because I thought that Drax would have such great interactions with Tony Stark and Robert Downey Jr. And it just all kind of came to fruition and actually it’s gonna happen and it’s good. It’s really good! It’s better than I ever thought it would ever be. I’m really excited.

Immediately (there’s chemistry between us). And here’s the thing– I went to the premiere in London for Avengers 2, and Robert went out of his way to come and meet me and say how much he loved me in the first (Guardians) film and that meant the world to me. So that put me at kind of an automatic comfort level with him.

So as soon as we hit the stage, man, there was no pressure there, there were no walls, I just felt like this guy was very supportive of me and I felt very comfortable with him. I think that’s just him. He’s a very giving actor all across the board. But just for me personally, I felt totally at ease with him and it makes for great chemistry when you’re comfortable with someone.”

I wanna lay down and stay up all night
As we look at the moon, as full as our hearts 💞

anonymous asked:

Hi. I really like your drawings so I think you can help me. I draw myself and I've got one friend that shows me how to paint humans. But if she sees my pictures, she always laughs and says that they are funny. I don't feel really confident and her meaning means a lot to me, so I think my drawings are just "funny". First I were really proud of them, but then she always comes and laughs. What should I do? P.S. I'm sorry for bad english. I'm from germany.

Um. wow…

That’s how you DON’T teach someone how to draw.  The thing with criticism, an important thing you should listen to, is that first you should find the good things about something you’re up to criticise. 

Say there’s a very detailed colourful drawing but the anatomy is very, very bad. Maybe one leg is bigger than the other, maybe the eyes are different shape, BUT.

You say that, hey, I like your colours! (for example)! You found a good contrast harmony! You’ve put so many details into it! And only then you say (BUT IN A KIND POLITE WAY) what this person should fix. Tell them what is not the greatest about anatomy AND HOW fix it, say that hey! I love your details, but It’s better to first finish the general shape because details can distract from it. Or, if you criticise something first then at least say what’s good about it afterwards.

People who laugh at someone work, I feel like, have absolutely zero interest in your improvement or self-confidence. In my opinion, this kind of people just want to level up in their own eyes by bringing someone down. We all know just how destroying those kind of laughs can be to people who put so much into their work. 

You’ve put your time, your imagination, your sincerity into something that means a lot to you and this itself isn’t funny at all! Your friend should at least respect your effort, because not everyone is born immediately great and have to work their way up.

I’d say don’t listen to your friend and keep being proud of your drawings! And I think you should be proud! Don’t let anyone bring you down like this.

types of star wars bloggers you find on tumblr
  • Big Name Bloggers (Type A): Canon url. Only make their own posts when it’s to be critical of something. Kinda rude. Complains about the popular fandom memes. Probably made a lot of original content to get where they are today but now doesn't do much. Overrated.
  • Big Name Bloggers (Type B): Also canon url. Seems intimidating but are actually really cool. Been here forever. Makes really funny shitposts and memes occasionally. Always on the right side of the discourse. Answers a ton of helpful asks. A lot of lesbians.
  • B-listers: may or may not have a canon url. If they do, they’re probably hoarding it. Run in very tight circles of friends who post similar content. Responsible for most of the memes and shitposts in the fandom. Host a lot of streams. Run all the ship and character appreciation weeks and have a ton of sideblogs. Prisoners of this fandom who will never leave.
  • Edits and Fanart Cryptids: Make amazing gifsets and edits, or fan art so beautiful it belongs in a museum. Posts almost exclusively that. You know almost nothing about them, and freak out when you realize they’re only like 15 years old. Really sweet people who never start drama.
  • Reylos and Kyluxers: A lot of people who weren’t star wars fans until TFA came out. The reason you never go in the tags. If you’re lucky, you sometimes forget they exist, until they start drama over something awful.
  • Good TFA Fans: A lot of people under 18. Responsible for the majority of fan art and fics in the fandom. Read all the comics. Most have <1000 followers. A lot of finnpoe shippers. Seasonal sw bloggers who become parts of other fandoms during the off-season.
  • OT Purists (Type A): Lawful evil. No one’s sure why they’re even on tumblr because it seems like they’re just here to complain about things. Literally do not know how to make their own posts. Constantly derails other people’s posts with dumb comments. Have <100 followers. Straight women in their 30s. Don’t understand fandom memes.
  • OT Purists (Type B): Lawful good. Make intelligent text posts. Lots of character meta. Has their own preferences but stay in their lane. Good source for old behind-the-scenes stuff and trivia. Luke Skywalker Defense Squad.
  • Uncritical Prequel Stans: Either an obikin or an anidala. Some version of “anakin” in their url. Takes themselves too seriously. Really good at making gifs and memes. Probably has you blocked.
  • TCW/Rebels Fans: The part of the fandom with the least discourse. Love Ahsoka and very protective of the clones. Tons of rarepairs. Good people for the most part.
  • Rogue One Masochists: Still not over rogue one and cry about it daily. Frustrated that the rest of the fandom seems to have moved on. Lots of fic-writers. Tight-knit communities.
  • The Shitposters: Either have 5,000 or 12 followers, you really can't tell. You don't know what the fuck is going on on their blog 90% of the time. Post erratically. Have tight circles of friends they shitpost with. Responsible for whatever the meme of the week is.
