if i was flexible

2

Okay while I’m at it (i mean talking abt my art policy w someone laughs)
I would like to share this thing happened to me from months ago.
Something I rlly have to tell to all my followers or people who visit my page.

To begin with, I’m a really flexible kind of artist regarding my own art’s policies.

Use as icon? Use it. Use as header? Use it. Repost? Redraw? Trace? Reference? Yep, totally don’t mind, go ahead. I see those stuff as ways to appreciate my art, instead i would like laughs at it and “wow why would you like my ugly art cries, thanks tho.”
There is only one thing I ask from you all, “a credit”, yep, a link back to my tumblr. Or my twitter, or my name, just anything.

Because all I want is “respect and honesty” alright, you don’t need to ask my permission, but if you respect me & my art you surely would at least write down my name on the caption right?

Lol i became too sappy im sorry.
And well so, it’s not rare, but not often either for me to saw my art getting reposted. But this one particular haikyuu page in fb reposted my art without a credit to me. I wouldnt tell which art and which page bcs i don’t want problems. Please don’t look it up either i beg you.

Ok so, ofc my friend is like “haru isn’t this your art?” So I’m like “oh yes it is”
So i went to the page, and comment, kindly and politely, to put my link to tumblr on the caption. Thought, honestly, i wouldnt mind if they don’t do it either bcs if you see the comment section, the link is there, right there.
But this page, instead of choosing to just ignore the comment, which is already quite rude, choose to delete my comment.
My friends are like “whoa wtf, do u need a hand” but I’m too tired of shits already so I’m like “nah it’s cool.”

Ok, so, I’m no big artist, and I’m totally cool with this kind of thing. But it’s rlly unrespectful to the artist to do this kind of thing man. If you can’t support the artist by buying their stuff, commissing them, well excuse u, at least pls support them by respecting them.

To the admin of that page, i forgive you but please don’t do it anymore cries.

I’m sorry for rambling too much, i just feel like i need to make this post so some ppl would know all i want is my name written on the caption
Here have a KageHina :’) i haven’t been drawing so much lately cries //rolls away

I’ve literally been trying to redesign her top for 2 hours and I CANNOT decide on one…Because there’s just no perfect balance of sexy/practical that satisfies me and allows me to show off her muscles. It’s changed 3-4 times since I created her and I’ve never been satisfied with it. 

Fuckin fuckity fucks

like…this is the previous rendition and I just HATE IT

Clexa and 44.

“i’m not that flexible!”


“Lexa!” Clarke’s forehead was beading with sweat and the muscles in her neck strained painfully. 

“Just a little more, Clarke.” Lexa coaxed, concentrating on Clarke’s movements. 

“I’m not that flexible!” Clarke dropped the heavy sword in her left hand and let it fall to the dirt with a dull thud. 

Lexa stood up from her spot on the outside of the training ring. “That exactly what we’re trying to work on.” 

Clarke reached down and picked up the sword as Lexa walked over to her and stepped in behind her. 

“Follow my movements.” Lexa whispered.

Clarke felt a chill rise up her spine and a heat ignite in the pit of her stomach as Lexa took her arms and started guiding her. 

“You know,” Clarke turned her head so she could brush her lips against Lexa’s skin. “I can think of much better ways to get flexible.” 

Lexa smiled, but kept manipulating Clarke’s movements to train her body. 

Clarke knew that it was going to take more than just words to distract Lexa from training. 

“Lexa…” Clarke dropped her voice so it was even more husky, a classic Lexa weakness she knew very well. 

Clarke felt Lexa’s body shutter slightly and knew she was finally getting through to her. 

“Follow my movements.” Lexa said again, but this time her lips pressed against Clarke’s neck. Their bodies still moved together, but now Clarke spun slowly so she could face Lexa. 

Their lips finally met and once again the sword fell to the ground completely forgotten. 

Work

Can we talk about work here fumblrs?  I’m struggling.  I teach at a local university full time.  I’ve been there for over ten years at this point.  Prior to that I taught at a different university in a different state for several years.  Then I moved back to my hometown once I adopted DD for social/familial support.  I spent a couple of years working non-profit licensing families who wanted to be foster parents and training them.  I enjoyed it but I was literally making like $11/hour with no benefits and my position required a masters degree.  It wasn’t ideal as a single mom.

When a position opened up at the university closest to me, I jumped on it.  I took a part-time job for a semester and that lead to a renewable position.  More than ten years later, here I am.  It’s great in terms of flexibility, but not in terms of pay (hello education).  I also have zero job security.  I don’t have a PhD so my contract is renewable annually.  I’m also making about $3k more now than I was when I started as we don’t get any annual raises, not even for cost of living.  A couple of years ago I received a promotion which came with a $1100 pay increase.  I will eventually be eligible for one more of those types of promotions, and that will be where I tap out of the pay scale. I can bring in some additional money by teaching summer school which runs three weeks in June.  However, basically I’m sitting in the low-mid $40K/year range. 

For whatever reason, the work load is way heavier now than it was ten years ago.  Class sizes are about the same.  However, now I am teaching a mix of face-to-face (f2f) and online courses when ten years ago online courses weren’t even a thing.  Online courses are a total time suck.  They just take forever to get through everything.  I also have a 5/4 teaching load which means I’m teaching five classes one semester, and four the next.  Finally, I teach public speaking so it’s a performance based class which means I’m watching a ton of speeches online (and in the classroom).

All of that to say, I was offered a different position last summer for a little more pay, but it involved a lot of travel.  I think that I would have enjoyed the job but hated being away from home, especially at night.  It was a trainer position, but ultimately through the university system as well so I would have still been stuck in terms of promotions and pay increases (because the university just isn’t doesn’t do either of those things right now and hasn’t for many, many years). 

I’m tired y’all.  I appreciate the flexibility of my schedule SO much!  I think it’s primarily why I stay.  But now we are looking at the possibility of raising SIX kids full-time.  I just don’t think we can stay in our current home.  There is debate as to whether or not Ms. 6 will need her own room or her own space, but we have neither available.  I think part of what is hard right now is that people have nowhere in our home to go to be alone.  I am working from home this weekend and literally sitting in my bed to do so (which is fine unless I have to create video of myself to put online–not super professional to be sitting in bed to do so).  We don’t live in an area where we can be outside year round.  This winter we have REALLY felt the effects of living in such a small space (maybe 1500 sq. ft for eight people).

I’m trying to decide what to do.  Ms. 6 is going to require a lot of time and energy so going to a less flexible job with more pay seems like a bad idea.  However, more money and a bigger place sounds heavenly.  I would like to do some sort of foster care/adoption consulting work, but I don’t even have a clue how to get started in that.  What are y’all doing for work and how are you making it work with your family and/or foster care dynamic?

ETA: I’m currently working seven days/week which is the whole reason I started the post. I feel like I never have time where I am simply off. Even when we were on the Wish Trip, I was responding to email the whole week we were gone, and grading in the airport.

theminortale  asked:

So, would there have been alternate endings for the date if Frisk chose poorly? Such as Maximum Dating power, minimum credibility (Sans likes what he hears, but he's not sure if they mean it) or minimum dating power maximum credibility (Sans thinks they're being honest, but also a bit a jerk)

Yep, I think so! I will say that it would be REALLY hard to “fail” the date, but at the very least, it’s probably possible to finish it with a low “score” before Papyrus comes in and forces them to up the romance.

One of these days, I may do some bonus panels exploring the other options, ‘cause I think there’s a lot of room for some silly. Like selecting some of the more forward or jerkish responses and such.

That being said, if anyone has ideas for bonus episodes they’d like to see, I’m flexible. With Sans and Asgore open for calls, there’s already a lot of potential.

Maybe I’ll do a few Asgore calls before the next major part. Hm!

I’m doing a little better today intake wise. Snacking a little less. If I wasn’t going to my mom’s to have my birthday dinner I could probably end today around 1200cal but there’s no way I’m missing out on enjoying that to the fullest ♡

Legs are still insanely sore, hopefully I’ll be flexible enough by Monday to get the most out of my first day of gym push.

I took my first lyrical dance lesson today! I know basically nothing about dancing except a tiny bit of hiphop.
I am not flexible or lightweight. There was only one other girl, and she was beautiful and slim and far more experienced. I am a rock. I can’t do the splits or drop to the floor gracefully. I kept going in the wrong direction because I was nervous and gahh
Despite all of that, it was fun. Anything with music is fun, and I know if I excercise more I will get better. It’s easier when you’re lightweight and fit.

itsj3rmz  asked:

What is your diet like whenever you weight train? Do you stick to meal prepping and counting calories or do you just wing it out and dirty bulk?

Atm I’m trying to lean down. I’m doing flexible dieting which is counting calories but also my main priority is hitting 130g of protein (which is my body weight) and trying to stay under ~50-60g of fat http://joel-ellie.tumblr.com/post/157345011894/my-fitness-shit

The day I apparently broke the internet! From Dallascon16

So I have come to learn that quite a lot of people have seen this photo and only about half know the amazing story behind it. So I thought I would finally tell it here on tumblr!

I had bought a mishalecki photo op ticket on the Thursday before the convention but had absolutely no clue what pose to do, until it hit me. I am a hug Misha fan, and every time I have gotten to talk to him I am usually sarcastic and try to match his wit. I also love Jared, he is like an actually giant puppy. Anyway way the whole fandom knows that Misha had bragged about how flexible he is, well I am quite flexible too. Just as flexible as Misha actually,lol! So then this pose came to mind. I knew it would crack Jared up and it would give me a chance to show off some skill. I didn’t want to many people knowing what pose I was going to do because I was afraid volunteers might not be keen on the idea or I just wanted it to be a surprise.

So I was third or so in line for the photo and Misha and Jared set the tone pretty quickly with their entrance that screamed fun and sexy. Half the people in the room knew what pose I was gonna do and the other half didn’t. When it came my turn I walked up to Jared and Misha, I had to repeat it twice but for the sake of just retyping the same things I will write once.

I stood between Jared and Misha, looking at Jared while I kept Misha in my sights. I said this, “ Hey guys so I am going to do a pose you have never done before. (They began to smile; I then gently put my hand on Misha’s chest to direct Jared’s attention) See I am more flexible than Misha is, (Jared chuckled, Misha looked curious) so I am going to do a reverse table top yoga pose and I want you two to arm wrestle on my stomach. Look as extreme as possible, got it!?” I had to repeat this twice, but both were smiling and went ok, I have a feeling they were still confused, that was until I hit the ground. I heard half the room gasp,slightly, and the other half sorta whispering. From above I heard Jared and Misha go at the same time, “OH”, they had finally understood. Jared actually signaled for Chris to do another picture because he realized they both were not ready when the photo was taken, I am so glad he did cause it turned out amazing.

As I started to come out of the pose Jared helped me up, which was basically pulling me 3ft into the air, I am 5′2! He went, “Damn girl that was kick ass!” and gave me a high five. I told both of them thank you and started to walk away when Misha decided he was not done with me yet. Misha gently grabbed my arm and pulled me back. He leaned in so close to my face I could feel his scruff and he whispered, “ Your not more flexible than me.” As I turned to look at him he gave me the Casifer grin and winked. And to put the cherry on top of me walking away I started smiling and wagging my finger going, “No no no no no”, and the damn music stopped. Misha and Jared chuckled and I left. Later that day I showed Jared the photo, he cracked up laughing and decided to sign it, even though I already had his auto. I was like Jared stop and he went, nope I am signing this. He also signed it with AKF.

There you have it, my crazy story!
