I’m gonna be up in Point of Rocks MD (a town so small, they have a single stop light) for Thanksgiving break from Wednesday the 22nd to Sunday the 26th! Life at home with my mom has been really hellish for the past few weeks especially and I haven’t really had a break since my mom fractured her ankle 4 months ago. As such, I won’t be posting regularly at all for the next 5 or so days. Y'all can send me asks and I’ll respond in time but don’t expect much art, if any. I’m gonna bring my tablet there– I’m staying with my grandparents, uncle, aunt, and three cousins– but I’m gonna be far more inclined to having family time. They’re all mentally ill and extremely understanding and accepting of me, supporting my own mental illness and transsexuality and I love them a whole bunch. This is a much needed break, believe me.
Hope y'all have a lovely holiday or, for my non-American followers, a lovely normal week in November.

It was a really good month, I experimented a lot and had so much fun. Also I want to particularly thank all of you for your supports, your likes, reblogs, comments, tags and messages. I am sooo overwhelmed and I feel so blessed by all of you and yup Thank you guys, you are amazing and I am so lucky!! Have a really really beautiful day <3 <3
I feel like vld3 is either gonna have the sweetest, happiest, most hope filled and optimistic season finale where everyone is together and happy, or it’s going to end with literal chaos, shiro will be comatose, probably will have lost his galra arm, keith will be afraid of succumbing to his galra heritage or some shit and run away, lance will probably go after him to look for him, a lion is destroyed, allura finds out her father was a rat and everything she knew about voltron was a much much darker truth than she knew, family drama, lotor will probably have a mental break down, haggar laughs as she sits on the throne because she finally has control over the whole empire, and idk matt and pidge probably find out sam is fucking dead (or he’s also a rat working with the galra).
You don’t know everything. There’s a lot you don’t know about the universe and how it works. Your personal belief system is not a universal truth that everyone must follow. Saying people are foolish or “will learn eventually” because they subscribe to a different belief system than yours is rude and imperialistic. Don’t act like you’re a wise old sage with all the secrets figured out, because you’re only human, just like the rest of us.
Science still matters. While a lot of what we do seems like we’re skirting impossible, we are still physical beings in a physical world. Eating random plants, drinking potions with hazardous materials, and overall being really unsafe about your craft WILL still effect you no matter how much energy you raise. Your healing spell is going to have to metaphysically fight the fact that you just physically swallowed a rock. No positive energies are going to cancel that out.
There will ALWAYS be haters. Whether it be from outside people who think your craft is a self-delusion, or long-time witches who think your untraditional path is a disgrace, you can’t please everyone. There are as many ways to practice the craft as there are witches and then some. There’s no hate-free path, so just accept that and don’t give hate to other people for theirs; you know how it feels coming from other people so why give it to someone else?
Magic won’t solve all your problems. Magic is a very powerful spiritual tool, but it’s not going to solve everything. You will still need to reach out, take action, talk to people, lock your doors, etc. The witch whose first reaction to literally everything is to cast a spell with no followup, and only seeks out knowledge through divination and nothing else will still have a lot of problems because they’re so separated from the rest of the world.
