idk how to tag this

Here comes an ooc rant that I can’t put under read more cause mobile so I’m sorry in advance orz

Basically, I’m changing majors since I didn’t like the one I was pursuing — I love English but after eight months of seeing it everyday and learning linguistics and stuff I realized I just don’t see the rest of my life doing that. So I obviously told my parents after lots of thought, which was…. A lot to me, considering I have a really bad relationship with them but yanno they’re the ones paying my education and I live under their roof and everything.

I explained it to them, told them I gave it lots of thought and that I would rather study psychology instead — my actual first choice in major that they never supported — and they flipped, telling me that I can’t change majors at this point in life (((( I literally just finished my first year of English )))) and that ‘why did I study something I don’t like’.

Mind you, I thought I liked it for five years and realized I didn’t.

And now that the thing I thought I wanted to do for the rest of my life fluked, I have no idea what to do for the rest of my life. At all. Because my other option is getting shut down by my parents because “”“I don’t see you as a psychologist”“” ((( it’s not even clinical psychology the one I’m interested in, but forensic psychology )))

And I’m just. I’m sad and angry because they should support my decisions, they should be there for me because I’m just a teenager trying to figure out what the hell I want to do the rest of my life — but no, they just. Yell at me and slap away all my possible options without giving me any advice. It’s tiring and honestly disappointing because they’re so fixated with wanting a good future for me ((( if I don’t study law or medicine apparently I’m a nobody ))) that they don’t realize that, although it IS important, I should do something that makes me happy, not that gives me the most money.

My piece for XCX Anniversary is in progress!

At first I only wanted to test some colors over the sketch and uh… I took it a bit too far. Now I’m not sure if it would be worth it to do lineart and proper base colors and shading… I don’t have much time and energy left x.x So I might try adding detail and more defined shapes to this thing here. I’ve never tried this technique before though ><

‘You ran away from home?’
‘When I was about sixteen,’ said Sirius. ‘I’d had enough.’
‘Where did you go?’ said Harry, staring at him.
‘Your dad’s place,’ said Sirius. ‘Your grandparents were really good about it; they sort of adopted me as a second son.’

(and I know this set will probably be confusing to some people since a lot of people like Kristin Scott Thomas as Walburga but she’s always been Mrs. Potter to me)

The Really Big Studying Masterpost

I couldn’t get it together enough to do a graphic or anything, so here goes. Sorry this is massively long but hopefully it will be helpful!


Studying

Memorization

Last minute studying

Finals / exams

Standardized testing

Focus and productivity

Burnout / motivation / procrastination

Mental health

Self care

+ self promotion (bc everyone seems to be doing this)

Like it would make a lot of sense for superheroes to like, double up. two or more people alternating in the one suit:

  • you’ve had a REALLY tough week but some dude is holding up a bank??? no problem ur bro can do it, you’ll catch the next next one.
  • in fact “AH YES THE SUPERHERO IS BADLY INJURED, NOW IS MY TIME TO TAKE OVER THE WO-wait what the fuck? I saw you take a bullet literally two days ago??? foiled again”
  • “I’m just saying that Angela looks REALLY like the city’s super X” “yeaaaaah true but she was with me that one time I saw super X take down a mugger. We got autographs.” “oh…. okay then….”
  • ur fighting styles aren’t going to be IDENTICAL no matter what, anyone who tries to find a pattern is gonna be really confused.
  • it would be less of a big deal if you wanted a weekend off. none of the “AND WHERE WAS OUR BRAVE HERO IN OUR TIME OF DESPERATE NEED??” “I was out of town for my sister’s wedding alright, i didnt know the giant robots were going to attack. CHILL.”
  • like yeah you’d have to have roughly the same body type and the same powers (or maybe not, see fighting style above)
  •  it would be ruin the illusion if things were really bad and you needed two people at once - but why stop at two people and one superhero  identity?? why not a half dozen friends as a duo or trio? a whole 20 of ye masquerading as a five piece band??
  • “shit its aliens again. red suit and orange suit NOW”
    “no we’ll need someone who can fly, take out the green instead”
    “Well do YOU want to wear green? cause i’m not squeezing my hips into that, not today my friend”
    “Can’t Em do it?? they haven’t been on duty all week”
    “Em’s having lunch with their mum at three”
    “wasn’t green meant to be a wildcard for emergencies?”
    “well we can’t take out red with orange, don’t ANY of you know ANYthing about colour theory”
    “ALIENS DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT COLOUR THEORY ARE YOU COMING OR NOT”
  • Just like … keep muddying the waters until your secret identities are totally safe. 
    • Also no man is an island.
