January Stripes

Seeing the GIF Artists Collective January theme of “Stripes”, I mulled the idea over and over for the previous 30 days, telling myself “Oh, this will be easy. I’ve got this covered.”. Yeah. No. Each time I would sit down with a whole free day ahead of me, I would have a bit of color inspiration, but no design inspiration. Something about the shape I wanted to create would elude me every attempt.

So on the last day to make it before midnight on the 31st, I forced myself to sit down with some graph paper and just work out the design’s shape before sitting down at the computer. And you know what? It worked. Finally, a design idea that stuck.

It also helped that I was playing with one of my favorite toys while talking with friends for a few hours the night before, and I was able to work out the perfect color scheme by pulling a subset from the toy’s rainbow. I freaking love this toy.

-5 AM? Are you fucking serious? I fed you at 10 PM. Do you know how many people would be thrilled to sleep with me and stay in bed cuddling till the sun came up?
-Sitting in one of the four different windows that I opened for you is not good enough? Now you need to go out for a walk? Do you realize that you’re a cat? Fine I took you out for a walk. You’re still unhappy? What do you want for me?
-I just mashed up your venison and green peas with the dry food that you like. You’re not happy? Too close to the water bowl? Too close to the other cat? The wrong temperature? Was it in the fridge too long?
-You’re right I was out for a few hours with humans. But I’m back now. Play with the stick? Play with the catnip? Do the foot game under the Swedish blanket that cost $300 that you sleep on and scratch the shit out of every night? It’s never good enough.
-One of you sleeping under the bed and the other is at the end of the bed just out of reach. I’m alone. #cats


Donnie pulled his duffel out from under his workbench, grabbing a pair of wire cutters along with a few other tools he would need. Going dumpster diving wasn’t all that easy when you were just using your bare hands. He turned around to smile at his youngest brother, who was standing in the doorway of his lab.

“Come on, Seb, I’m not gonna fall for that one again. We all know you just want me to stay here because Mikey wants to binge watch Netflix or play video games with somebody for five hours, and you’d rather he drag me into it instead of you.”

He pulled the duffel bag’s strap over his shoulder, ready to push past the turtle standing in his way if need be.

All I really want is to know someone that will ask me what’s on my mind and genuinely care about even the simplest musings, not just when my thoughts are about them. I genuinely want to know every single thing you’re wondering about, every comeback that you could’ve used a few hours ago if only you’d thought of it sooner, every quirk, what your morals are and why, what you would do if you could do anything. Basically I want someone that will be okay with thinking out loud to eachother, or playing 20 questions except there’s way more than 20. No one ever wonders what’s on my mind. I’m in love with thoughts and memories and little things. I wanna know your whole life story, and all the feelings you’ve ever felt and why. All the things you’ve done, good and bad, the places you’ve been. I just want to understand everything about you. It’s a lot to ask but I want someone to want to understand me.

neerble asked:

If you've played The Witness- or if any of your followers have, would you/they say it's worth getting? I've been on the fence about wanting to get it and just wanted to know what others think.

Ive only done a few puzzles so far, been mostly running around exploring the island and enjoying the scenery, but i can tell its a quality game. It seems like theres tons and tons of puzzles with a wide degree of difficulty, so youll definitely be putting some hours into this one. I love how most of the island is free to explore, without having to complete a challenge every few feet to proceed. So if you cant figure one out, your progress isnt blocked and you can find another one to try out.

They had a guy who worked on the Myst franchise helping to develop it, so it channels a bit of atmosphere and feeling from those games. No music, but subtle sound effects. Controls are simple, so all you can do is walk/run and solve puzzles. $40 is a lot to spend on a game like this, but i think if youre a fan of these types of games, you wont be disappointed.

May I have a X-Men and an Avengers ship please? Im the mom of my friends (ie always making sure everyone is okay and fed and what not). All my hobbies are creative ones. I'm currently learning piano, but have been doing musical theatre for nearly 10 years now. I do a lot of special effects and beauty makeup as well. Acting helps with my anxiety bc for a few hours i can be someone else and i take some characteristics from characters i play to help me in real life. hope this is enough info <3 thx!

I would ship you with…

Charles Xavier!

Charles is very fond of you indeed. Not only are you caring and loving, but you’re talented. Charles will always be proud of the work you put into your hobbies. He’ll always be smiling when he sees you working hard.

In his spare time he enjoys going to the theatre just to see you. He takes caution with your anxiety because he wants you to be safe, but when he sees you perform he knows you’ll be just fine. Charles is also more than happy to help you learn how to play the piano.

Charles knows as long as you’re happy and enjoying yourself, he’ll be happy too. Charles is in love with you and nothing will change that.

Steve Rogers!

Steve loves to tell his his friends how wonderful and amazing you are. He’ll convince them to come with him when he goes to see you perform. People don’t need to look at him to know he’s proud of you.

Steve will always support you whether you need it or not. He likes you to know that he’ll always be there for you.

Your anxiety isn’t a problem for Steve. He’ll always help you get through it. As long as you’re smiling by the end of the day, you’ll be fine. He will always be close by to come to your aid if needed.

It’s all just apart of being in love with you. There is nothing to worry about as long as Steve is with you.

I hope you liked these ships! ~R

seems like the only ppl /not/ salty about Nightfalls are the ones that don't play. Like god forbid ppl want to get something worth their few hours of time that can actually help them in-game, in one of the only Y2 PvE environments. Shit it takes longer than most raids sometimes. You can buy Fall emotes. You can't buy gear. I get that it's only 280 light but when your friend gets 17 coins, that should be an indicator of how much this all should be worth. How do people my see this.

Shrugs. Some get so defensive of Destiny and the same overused line they all come up with us “you’re just ungrateful” or “there’s always something wrong”. But when you compare destiny and all bungie has done to other games you’d realize how much the beginning players have been put through. Destiny has so much potential and offers a unique experience but the issues that are piling up are outweighing the good.

aw, I had a lot of fun at my ex’s house. he made cornbread, and we drank tea and played cards for a few hours. mostly just catching up and reestablishing our report after a six or seven month hiatus in friendship. i’d missed him - he’s smart, critical, and makes me laugh. i think we’re both on the same page, and though he seems a little cautious (he always did, even when we were dating), i can tell he’s also stoked to be in each other’s lives again. it’s always a nice feeling when you realize that sometimes you can drift away from someone but that there is often still space to come back to, if you want to, and that the mutual respect and appreciation of one another doesn’t necessarily evaporate over time. it’s nice that so much time has gone by, too, because now we can both be sure that we’re friends because we both actually want to be, and not out of courtesy or an avoidance of awkwardness. proud of myself for cold-calling him after five months of silence. no regrets here.

5, 38, 40?

 5: Talk about the best birthday you’ve had.

Oh man hmm… oh actually I do totally have one now that I think about it! For one of my birthdays I wanted to go see a play down in Stratford (where Justin Bieber is from but fck that guy I wanted to see some Shakespeare re-enacted because Stratford is wonderful) SO I invited three friends to come with me on a road trip that lasted a few hours to Stratford. BUT I didn’t tell them where we were going, I said it was a surprise. And it was hysterical because we’d pass signs on the highway that said like ‘Nudist Resort, exit on the left’ it was so perfect pfft. If they kept asking I was going to eventually just flat out lie and say that we were going to meet the Biebs (who we all deeply dislike). They were like ohhh… ok… I didn’t know you were a fan of Justin Bieber Amy.. (meanwhile I’m like heaving sobs laughing to myself). When we got there I told them what we were actually doing and I distinctly remember one of my friends whacking me with a newspaper PFFT. The rest of the day was nice. We got to feed swans nearby, walked around the cute little downtown, and one of my friends made me slippers of Renton and Eureka (which I still own and love to this day). :’)

I hear a song by Bossman I totally think of you val. :D But for specific songs hm… well I hear Feel So Moon and I think of you and @usagismile because Space Bros jams. Why the Fuck You Lyin I think of @tamarnicole1 because jesus you love to play that whole song in the house ilu. When I hear Colorful Story (from Re-Kan) I think of @tenisuhime ~ Oh also Miraikei Answer I gotta think of @phiventure too because Oreo-kun bae. 

40: Talk about the end of something in your life.

This is actually kind of timely and relevant - I’ll be graduating from University in June and completing my undergrad. It feels really strange and kind of sad because I feel like I could’ve done so much more here in previous years. This city was all new to me back in 2012 and I only started properly exploring it towards the end of my second year. I’ve made a lot of great friends here too which I’m seriously grateful for. I’ve applied for graduate studies on a master’s level at a few other Universities so thats still good but there’s only one chance that I’ll stay here (should I be accepted to a nearby college). I also kind of wish that I was more involved in the community here, and that I jumped at more academic opportunities - I see a lot of my friends doing something extra and can’t help but feel a little envious, but I have to accept that this is my life and I just have to make the most of it. Leave my shell for awhile and all that. :) And while part of me feels a little depressed that its over already, I am kind of excited to visit and live in a new place wherever my graduate studies lead me.

Most of my DS games I bought them while on highschool. I’ve lost a few games over the years but managed to keep safe the ones I play a lot and like. I used to have PKMN Diamond and Platinum but that was lost when I moved back to California. I only buy the 3ds games about once every month or two it just depends on the price of the game and if something that I do like.

I never hesitate to buy Natsume Games but I do regret buying Hometown Story. Even though it had some bad reviews I thought of giving it a try either way but I played it for at least 5 hours and the story want really getting my attention. You can’t do as much in the game as in Harvest Moon or Rune Factory. I might it another go when I have time.

Lost in Blue 2 was another game I lost years ago but I did love the game. So I was able to buy it online very cheap. The game is fun and interesting since you have to survive in this island with your partner and chose to be the girl or the boy on the game. In my first game I had already explored more than half then island but in the new game I’m barely getting to the half.

There are more games that I let my brother use so they are not included in the photo. Pokemon Y is downloaded in my 2DS. If your like the friends code for my 2DS or 3DS just let me know. I need more friends for my Animal Crossing which I haven’t played on about 2 weeks…?

I blame @amoralborn for the PKMN White 2 game by the way! I used to have Pokemon Black and sold it after playing the game quickly. But I followed her and got to know her character Colress and he came out on the sequels of White and Black it made me ask my brother to buy the game for me!! Which I still have to keep on playing oTL

thefanfichelp asked:

"You haven't had enough of playing with fire, baby?"

She looked at him with a pensive gaze, awaiting the answer to her question, though his response wasn’t necessary. Her gift of sight had awarded her of the answer a few hours ago. She was never one to use her powers out of spite but he was going to be the exception. 

“Man what are you tripping on now?” he said, smacking his lips in the process. It seems like all they ever did was argue this days which is why he found himself coming home later and later.

“I just don’t understand how you refuse to take my feelings into consideration,” I said while standing up and walking over to him. He took a few steps back, expecting to be hit but I had something else in store for that ass. “Tell the truth, that’s all I want.”

“Ain’t shit to tell and I’m getting tired of this bullshit straight up. I’m bout to dip,” he said.

“And head where? Back to Kayla’s?” I asked, with a raised brow. His eyes widened at the name mentioned. 

“Mayne why would I be going over there?” he countered, no longer brave enough to look me in my eyes.

“The same reason you always do…it’s easy,” I purred, feeling my fingers come alive with my other talent. 

It’s time to wake up.

I’m 21 years-old. I’m not getting any younger.

I need to push my anxiety back to the deepest corners of my mind, tell these depressed-like mood swings to stop flirting with me, stop being so afraid of failure, and just GO. Time isn’t going to slow down and wait for me to face my fears, nor will it offer a helping hand through my mental obstacles. If anything, time is one of my greater enemies, taunting me with every tick of the clock. I could be making a thousand dollars (or more!) a week, if I would just get out of bed and seize the day. I could be attending any and every concert I want. I could be travelling on a weekly/monthly basis, even if it’s only a few hours away in the same state. I could be buying myself a long-overdue updated wardrobe, which would play a colossal role in boosting my self-confidence. This list of things I need and want to accomplish goes on for days, and I could be steadily checking things off of my list… but I don’t. I sit here, and I worry. I cry over everything and nothing at all, at the same time. I pull my hair out just thinking about tripping over my words around other people. All I do, and all I have ever done, is worry. Even as a child, in motherfucking kindergarten, I worried myself into panicked states. WHY? I don’t know. I may never know. But I do know it needs to stop, and I will make it stop. It ends here. It’s time to get a move on with my life, and stop watching from the sidelines. It’s time to wake up.

Does anyone else ever get the feeling when you’re paralyzed by two equally good choices? Like.. rationally i know that both options are great but somehow i get worried about which one to pick first, or like… ‘how do i know which one i want when i want them both?’
I got my copy of Bloodborne today but then also my copy of Digimon Cyber Sleuth arrived at the same time. That baffled me cos I preordered it a few months ago and i was sure it’d be arriving closer to the end of february :P
But now i’m in this situation where i have two great games I was excited to play, and i don’t know which i’m more excited to play, and i don’t know if i play them in the wrong order I wouldn’t get the full experience, and AAAAA
So instead of playing either of them i’ve just sat here procrastinating the decision for ten hours or so…

The little one and I are home and tired. We were at the hospital since 2 and the hubby just got put in a room for an extended stay an hour ago. Cerai was really good. We packed a few snacks and a coloring book for her so she’d be occupied a bit. She was playing with the doctor’s spinning stool more than anything.

My husband is doing okay. The blood thinner is helping and he is breathing better. Lots of tests tomorrow to see what’s causing the clots. This scare finally has him wanting to be healthy. It just sucks that it’s something potentially serious that made him change his mind.

I hate being depressed and battling my own thoughts. It’s so exhausting. At least I haven’t thought about suicide in over a month. It’s progress. It’s one of the few bright spots I have. I have napped for 1 hour and have had no other sleep since 1 pm on thursday and i know that this is playing a role in the way I feel. I just want someone to lay down in bed with me and tell me everything is going to be alright. Okay I lied, I know who I want there with me, but we haven’t spoken in a week and I can’t speak to her unless I’m over her. I knew she was sick but I guess it is getting worse and there’s nothing I can do. The worst part of it all is that no matter what happens to her I won’t know. It’s not my place to be there for her and I still want to be. I guess that’s part of the reason we’re not currently talking. I’ll get past the way she made me feel when I was at my worst. All the pain, hurt, anger, frustration, sadness, despair, jealousy, everything. It’s not going so well, but I’m trying. I miss her family. I miss our hours long conversations we used to have by our cars after we got done eating at the restaurant. The summer nights were perfect for endless conversations that outlasted the employees. They’d shut off the lights and lock up the doors as they’d get in their cars and go before we would. Then life caught up to us and this is the reality know. I can guarantee we will not make the same mistakes again, but I can’t say either of us will like the way we go about it… I hate the way that sounds, but we couldn’t keep it up. We really needed a break. I wish we didn’t…

ugh so my boyfriend invited me over to his and I’ve been sat for 2 hours overthinking whilst he plays gta online with my ex. I don’t think I’ve felt this shit in a while tbqh I just sorta need someone to talk to, atm I have no-one. None of my friends will listen and he couldnt care less atm and I’m pretty done with everything. I’m only like a few days clean with self harm and I really want to again, I just need someone to listen to me so I guess this is the only way someone will, but hey ho, no-one gives a fuck tbh and I couldnt care less about me anymore so I guess this could be it. My anxiety isnt good either, but neither am I so yeahh (´・_・`)


I had to talk about you yesterday.. A whole two hours of tearing masks away from the faces of my demons. Allowing someone else, a stranger actually, to hear me rattle off a play by play of the last year. I told her everything, just sort of summarized.. Thank god she didn’t want to, nor have the time to, dig any further. I was such a mess; each time I vocalize everything that’s happened, one event after another, it all becomes far more real. I’m being forced to acknowledge all the parts of me I hate, and share a bench in a waiting room with them until I can stomach it… I’d almost stopped thinking about you, only specific things would cloud my head and paint your portrait, vivid as ever, behind my eyelids. Only a handful of my recollections of time spent with you knocked the air right out of my lungs.. I’d finally stopped feeling that ache in my stomach when I see the few things i still have that are directly tied to you, to me, to us.. Whatever. I wish you would have lied to me one more time.. once more, and said you were sorry too, instead of telling me you weren’t sorry; you had no remorse, and you actually enjoyed the feeling you got from mercilessly tearing me apart all those times.. I know your eyes too well. I tried to convince myself they said otherwise, you were being spiteful and shitty because you were as hurt as I was. I couldn’t ignore the fact that I hadn’t seen them light up and shine quite as they did in that moment for months though.. It made me sick, choked up with the urge to vomit. I wish I never met you.

Another YT update for my lovelies =^~^=

Okay, so I’ve finished recording 19 episodes of Soma now (18 are on YT and the last one is saving as I type this). Now, as much fun as it is to get the pants scared off me for a few hours every afternoon, I think Imma start doing a couple other games as well, just to give my channel some variety and my heart a rest—but not too long of a rest, cuz the next two games I plan to Let’s Play are Alien: Isolation and Bioshock 2!

I’m limited to Mac-compatible Steam games at the moment, so these are all I’ve got (for now, anyway). Many more on the way though (just as soon as I assassinate a millionaire and take her place :P ). I may also do a one-off of Emily Wants to Play (but it’s spoopy, so I dunno about that), as well as a few other scary games I’ve found on Steam. I want some happy games too, but apparently I’m a masochist and am drawn to the horror games. Ah well. At least it’s entertaining for loving and much appreciated fans lol.

Anyway, just thought I’d post this update. Keep an eye on my channel in the coming weeks for more updates, if you’re interested. If you have a YT account, leaving a like or two really goes a long way and is VERY appreciated. I’d love you to death. :P

Take care everyone! =^~^=

Lots of love!
