I’m really sorry for the selfie spam. I promise this is the last one. See the thing is, while im still incredibly far from where I want to be, and I hate a lot of things about this picture, I’m also really proud of myself. In the first couple months of my summer I have already come so far. And I have been sticking to my goals (personal goals not just Fitbit ones) and working hard and taking steps to be healthier mentally and physically.
It scares me actually how great I feel. Because i know depression is still ready to pounce the minute I let my guard down. But I’m trying to make habits that last and goals that are realistic.
Also I am at a summer job where everyone just knows me as Jake. And I’m going to be meeting a ton of new people who will have only ever known me as Jake. And yeah there’s still a shit ton of misgendering and it sucks. But I’m becoming more confident with correcting people which is important.
I get very……nervous when people say they’re jealous of me because I’ve had people straight up hate me for it even when I thought we were friends and it breaks my heart cause there’s literally…..nothing anybody should be jealous of cause I’m just…. some anxious idiot who draws lame pictures….Im thankful for what I have but I’m also still so critical and hateful towards my own stuff….and everyone is so talented like…look at yourself and see your worth…you’re all wonderful and so very talented…😰😰
Also…before you get angrily jealous of someone first think…about how hard they must have worked to get where they are now…don’t devalue that……support each other, inspire one another…especially in this industry where we could all use good words and advice. Be proud of your fellow artists, be proud of yourself. 😔❤️❤️
happy international rroma day! as someone who grew up in a small town in illinois, just being a latino-rroma or learning of my own history wasnt easy. everyday is a challenge for all of us, especially my grandmother, who cannot read/speak english well and is not treated very kindly by our white neighbors. with my tan skin, black hair, and native language all constantly being poked fun at in school and treated as the backbone of their jokes, being called both a “wetback” and a “baby-stealer” in my primarily white school, its not something that does a lot for your confidence. but going through these tags and seeing so many varied and beautiful people here is amazing. for once in my life, i feel proud to be who i really am.
here are some pictures i have gotten from my mothers photo album, the first pictures are of my great grandmother, her sister, and her palm reading stand. the second is my beautiful, strong mother, who has put up with the struggles and pain of being a rroma her whole life and raised a family by herself. she is the strongest person i know, and even if she doesnt see this, i hope one day she knows im grateful for everything she has ever done for us.
the second is an old picture of my small cousins around our neighborhood, which we still live near today and my mother owns an incense shop.
for all of you rroma out there, i want yo to know that you are wonderful. we may be constantly put down, but our spirits will never break. we are here, we are strong and we are beautiful, and we deserve visibility.
ur probs gonna see this later BUT CONGRATS ON SEEING CANDICE AND HER ASKING FOR UR EMAL!!! IM SO HAPPY FOR U
Thanks so much love!
I’m super proud of you for asking Candice for coffee and she took down your email this is so cute Cansia is iconic you’re deadass so cute this is adorable I’m screaming
CANSIA IS ICONC LOL! But seriously. When I first went up to her we were talking and she told me it was nice to see me again. She asked me if I had to wait long, and we were chatting before I got a picture with her, with my Iris West bag. I wasn’t planning on taking a picture with it with it but she suggested of course I said yes! Then some photographer (that worked there) asked us to take a picture with the bag and we did! She signed my bad and the poster that they gave us (Grant also signed it too). So I went on to Audrey and Brandon. I got of out of line and told @valeriemperez that I didn’t ask Candice for coffee because it’s busy and I was too shy lol, so Brandon Routh saw us chatting and asked Tatiana to come to him to tell him what we were talking about. She told him that I wanted to ask him for coffee and he laughed and said “good luck.” So I was forced to go ask Candice lol, and I did. I basically told her that “I’’m going to ask you something, and you don’t have to say yes or anything, and I don’t want to put you on the spot but I’m gonna put you on the spot anyways (lmao). I know you you said you’d rather have coffee with a fan than take a picture so I was wondering if you would ever want to have coffee with me in the future?” And she looked taken aback for a second like omg a person really asked me lmao, so after her initial shock I was like “you don’t have to feel obligated or anything, don’t worry” and she was like “no that not, it’s just that I don’t know when I’m going to be in LA and I wouldn’t know how to get in touch with you-” then I said I don’t even live here, I live in San Diego and she was like oh wow and I told her I always drive to these events held there (LA). She asked me if I to SDCC every year in which I told her yes. I told her I could give her my email and so she called her publicist to get it from me, so I had to spell my name out and stuff and he was like “and what is this for?” and I told him lol he’s very cute.
So yeah, I don’t think we are ever going to go for coffee because she’s a bust person and I would never want her to feel obligated to hit me up, even if she did get my email. She’s probably going to forget but that’s completely okay lol because I shot my shot ya know! I kind of regret asking her only because I get embarrassed after all these events and the things that I say but hopefully one day I will get over the first hand embarrassment! Candice is super lovely though, and I’m surprised she had her publicist come to me I’m still in shock and embarrassed lmao.
This is a small something I made for my darling @chapinfan69‘s birthday! The idea was originally both Sam Drake and Joel Miller, but seeing as this was practise (and it took many hours), I stuck to just sammy boy! I hope you like it honey, you saw all the development pictures anyway haha!
This is my first ever digital art so be kind.
I’m also now a proud member of the “I hate drawing stubble” club. I also gave up on the hair again, RIP me.
It’s a saltwater tank and I’m in love with it. Yes I know it’s empty and barren for now… you have to picture some colourful corals and a couple of (captive-bred) fish and some tiny hermit crabs. But I have to wait for it to cycle first… which I am doing, very (IM)patiently. Then fish!
And I’m actually weirdly proud because I set it up all by myself. I spent months researching and planning and preparing and amassing my equipment, I carried heavy things, I made a filter basket all by myself! Me, the least handy person ever! I can do anything!
So that’s my new tank and it has nothing to do with anything else on my blog (which was supposed to be about fandom??) but I was just really excited and had to share!
(Small sidenote: Please don’t think I’m replacing Banana. I actually started preparing for this tank well before he even started showing signs that anything was wrong. Banana was my first fish, my first adventure in aquarium-keeping, and he will always be the reason I got into this hobby despite convincing myself I never would, even though I work at a pet store. I actually miss him - he had a real presence in my home - so I’m happy I’m going to have fish friends again.)
There are not enough adjectives to describe all the amazing pictures and footage we have got of Dakota in the last couple of days😍.
She is very beautiful inside and out and im sure that that her inner beauty is one of the things Jamie fell for first.
Im so proud of her for working her ass off to get what she wants and although she is surrounded by loving family and friends she proves that she is a strong independant woman.
Cant wait to see her in upcoming projects.
Im very proud of how this came out, even tho i have a cramp QwQ. i made two versions! the mirrored one ((The one on top)) and the normal version! ((the one on the bottom)) i like the normal one better but i did a mirrored on anyways XD. ive always loved this song ever since i first heard it which was in a copycat meme -w-, i wanted to animate the copycat meme so badly but i cant animate sooo yeah ;w; at least i can draw pictures like this one XD, and yesh its corrupted hope again because i love my corrupted boy QwQ
A Paul Channing chibi I made in a new style to practice various things. It was the first drawing I made with my tablet, so im kinda proud of it, but got messed up twice (I made a stupid mistake that lowered the quality, and then I couldn’t save, so I lost a bunch of my progress on it), so now its really bad quality. The 2nd picture is the closest I could to get to the original (It was supposed to be smaller.)
