it's never too late to be who you are

I’ll also admit that one of the reasons I’ve not been on tumblr as much lately is that all of the drama is getting to me. I love you all dearly but my anxiety has been worse lately and I can’t handle it. I applaud all the good and important discussions being had but I likely won’t contribute to a lot of it until I’m in a better frame of mind

I just got back from a BBQ with a lesbian social group and let me just say

never ever think that it’s too late. 17 or 21 or 25 may feel old, but today I met a lady that realized she was a lesbian at 45 – after marrying a man and having three kids. now she has a girlfriend, and she manages a brunch group with other lesbians.

it’s easy to feel like you’ve lost so much time to self doubt or fear, and it’s okay to mourn that lost time. but it’s never too late to find happiness in who you are.

Humans are Weird: Memory and Grudges

So, Humans have this thing with keeping grudges and remembering every single wrong thing someone has done to them. And like, everyone deals with them differently. We have the petty people

Glock’norga: Human Anita can you help me?

Anita: Nope

Glock’norga: Why?

Anita:  You remember 10 months when you smacked me in the face with your tentacle and never apologized?

Glock’norga: Im sorry!

Anita: Its too late to apologize.

Glock’Norga: It was an accident though!

Anita: Well Im gonna accidentally not help you, bye.

We have the ones who actively seek revenge. And make sure the revenge is worse than whatever happened.

Jaliack: *Steps on a lego with a tack in it* Ow!

David: Ha! Thats what you get!

Jaliack: You put this here?!

David: Duh.

Jaliack: Why!?

David: A few days ago, you got peanutbutter in my hair.

Jaliack: I apologized! ANd you didnt get hurt!

David: You didnt sound like you meant it and I spent 3 hours getting it all out my hair! I told you I’d get you back!

And then youve got the people who’ll just take your apology.

K’lanack’ac: *Spills water on Jess* Oh no! Im so sorry!

Jess: Oh its fine.

K’lanack’ac: But it got in your hair!

Jess: Its cool dude.

K’lanack’ac: Ive just…. heard from the others that Humans can be a bit… mean when something bad happens to them.

Jess: Ohhhhhh youre talking about Anita and David? *Laughs a bit* They just hold grudges but I dont

K’lanack’ac: So… you wont ignore me when I need help, and you wont play a very mean prank on me?

Jess: Nah

The dark side of The Signs
  • Aries: Reckless to the point of disaster. By the time they figure out they've done or said too much, it's too late and the damage is already done.
  • Taurus: Unkind and unforgiving to those who once held their trust. They can be so blind to reason and to explanation. They will throw away people they love just to prove a point.
  • Gemini: You never know what you're going to get out of them. One day they'll be ready to help you and love you, they next they'll tell you never to speak to them again.
  • Cancer: They love blaming every problem they encounter on others. Because someone hated them so much, they had to have wished this on them. At least, that's what they're thinking.
  • Leo: They become extremely frustrated and hostile when they don't get what they want. They are convinced they deserve to have it, so if it means they need to break out the fangs, they will.
  • Virgo: They think they know better than you; and they'll tell you all about it. Did you really think you did something well? Virgo will explain just how to perfect it, and how they "could've done it better."
  • Libra: They aren't as harmless as they appear. The worst of them will try to eliminate whatever gets into their way. They don't care how "good" your intentions are- you're wasting their time, and they will most likely find a way to get you out of their way.
  • Scorpio: They don't forget. If you come back around years later trying to be close again, they will guilt trip you and then send you back. You don't want to fuck with these guys.
  • Sagittarius: They don't care about your feelings. If they have something to say, they're going to say it. And if you scream and cry, they're ultimately convinced it's not on them.
  • Capricorn: They will watch, and judge, every single thing you do. If they hate you a little extra, they'll fuck it up and get you in trouble for your accidents, too.
  • Aquarius: They will completely shut you out when they're bored of you. Don't expect an explanation (or any kind of friendly one,) or any sort of "mercy." They'll just sneer at you and walk away.
  • Pisces: They will lie right through their teeth to spare your feelings, and then go and do something they know would break your heart. Only for the pleasure of the moment.

Artist Shout Out

Shout out to artists who get drowned out by popular people’s art

shout out to artists who hardly ever get any reblogs

shout out to artists who feel like people are embarrassed to reblog their art

shout out to artists who constantly get told to “keep trying!” and “work harder!” even though theyve been doing it all their lives and still aren’t up to par with everyone else

shout out to artists who feel like they have no where to go because art is all they have even though it never gets attention

shout out to artists who JUST got a tablet as an adult because theyve never had rich parents to get them every little art supply they wanted

shout out to artists who feel like its too late because all the popular artists are so young

shout out to artists who had friends and family tell them they could be famous but got on the internet and saw how much better everyone else is

shout out to artists who feel like giving up everyday because they feel like they will always be outshined by other popular artists

you’re not alone. You can do this. It’s not a race, even if it feels like it a lot.

you know with all of these posts going around about how not to idolize rick or bojack its only a matter of time when people are going to be “calling me out” because those two characters also happen to be my favorite in their respective cartoons.

not because I idolize them but because I also suffer from depression and its nice to see it being represented but not in the romantic way this hellsite promotes. theyre both good reminders that you shouldnt excuse your shitty actions just because youre depressed or whatever because it doesnt fucking matter what mental illness you have if you treat people with disrespect you gotta fucking own up to it you know?

its also nice to see characters that are also suffering from substance abuse disorder and not have their disorder being just for “comic relief” or taken lightly. its not “fuck yeah dude you party every night and get hammered tell some funny jokes because youre drunk and high hell yeah” and thats it. yeah both of these shows do have those moments but at the same time they make sure to remind you that substance abuse disorder isnt some glamorized fun zone. its a real disorder that results in the sufferer doing real, shitty actions towards those they care about. 

so yeah its nice to have mainstream cartoons that are actual good representations of substance abuse disorder and depression and what can happen if its not treated properly. I love both rick and bojack because of that and they both remind me that its never really too late for me to overcome my depression.

Zach Dempsey X Reader imagine

Warnings: Cursing, very slight sexual abuse 

~* Y/N’s Pov*~

 "Okay everyone, please remember to do the homework I assigned on page 416" 

 Chemistry was probably the worst class of the day. Not because I was bad at it, its just boring. So here i am sitting in the back of the class waiting for the bell to ring for lunch. Today my boyfriend and I were supposed to skip lunch to hang out. Zach and I always do this and honestly its so much fun. We could go to the park, which is where we go most of the time, or we go through some random drive thru and get food from there.

 While I was lost in my thoughts, I didn’t notice that every one was already packed up. The bell finally rang and everyone went to lunch while i was still putting my things away. The teacher left and told me to turn off the lights on my way out. The room was empty but that quickly changed as Bryce Walker came in closing the door behind him which left me confused. I never liked Bryce he always seemed like an asshole.

 "Hey (Y/N)“ he said approaching me. 

 "The fuck do you want Bryce?" 

 "Ya know (Y/N), you’ve always had this attitude towards me and i think you might have a little crush” he answered. 

 " Its quite the opposite actually. Now excuse me but i gotta run" I said passing him and making my way to the door. 

 He grabbed my wrist and pulled me back before i could open the door. Before i knew it, I was trapped between his body and the wall and his lips were on mine. He was…making out with me? For some reason I thought this was gonna take a violent turn rather than him kissing me, but either way I didn’t like it. I pushed him off but he just put me back in the same position.

 "C'mon (Y/N), Zach doesn’t have to know. I mean i know you want me, what girl doesn’t?“ He said Now there were tears in my eyes. I was both afraid of what was gonna happen next and what Zach would think. 

 Before things went any further I tried pushing him again, this time he stumbled on my school bag that had fallen from me a few minutes back. He was now on the floor and i took this chance to get my bag and hurry out of the room. I walked outside the classroom and was instantly led to the cafeteria. 

 ~* Zach’s Pov*~

 I was sitting at a table with Justin, Alex, Montgomery, and a few other guys but i wasn’t really paying attention to what they were saying. I was too busy looking from my phone to the door that (Y/N) usually enters the lunch room from. 

 "Yo Dempsey” i hear Justin yell I turn my attention to him and he continues talking to me. 

 "Who are you looking for dude?“ He asks 

 "Im just waiting for (Y/N) to hurry up and come, its been five minutes since lunch started and shes never really this late”

 "Bro its just five minutes chill" And just as he finished his sentence I saw (Y/N) walk into the cafeteria. My smile was quickly replaced with a worried expression when i saw that she was crying. We locked eyes for a moment but she looked away and started making her way out of the school. I then saw Bryce walk out from that same door and the thought finally hit me that he wasn’t with us at lunch either. I suddenly realized what probably happened and i honestly didn’t know what to do, I was torn between going after (Y/N) to comfort her or going to Bryce and beating the shit out of him. Before i knew it i was already standing in front of Bryce and yelling at him. We went back and forth. 

 "Oh calm down Dempsey, nothing even really happened" Bryce said with a stupid smirk on his face.


 At this point Justin and Marcus were holding me back and telling me to stop, scared that i would say something about the tapes. They eventually let me go and i made my way outside looking for (Y/N). She couldn’t have gone that far, right? I got in my car and drove around campus until I found her on a bench near the tennis court. I got out and sat by her.

~*(Y/N)’s Pov*~ 

I saw Zach walking towards me but i didn’t look at him. He looked really mad which scared me. ‘Was he mad at me?’ I thought. Thats when he sat next to me and pulled me into a hug.

 "(Y/N) what exactly happened back there?“ He asked while pulling away sounding really worried.

 "I was just in class packing my things up when he walked in saying dumb shit then kissed me” I answered, still not looking at him.

 He then knelt in front of me putting his hands slightly rubbing my knees and trying to catch my gaze. 

 "Is that all that happened?“ I nodded

 ”(Y/N) are you sure? Cause i swear if that fuckass tries anything on you i will-“ 

"Thats all that happened Zach” i cut him off while smiling at him. 

 He smiled back, then stood up and made me stand up too. He led me to his car. 

 "You wanna just skip the rest of the school day?“ He asked "Cause im really not in the mood to see Bryce in the halls”. 

 "Yeah me neither, we should just get food and go back to my house" I answered. He pressed a quick kiss on my lips, turned on his car and we pulled out of school grounds.

Urban Legends

We ended up getting hundreds of submissions after we asked you guys to submit stories from your countries/cities/towns etc. We decided that it would be a lot easier to make a post with multiple urban legends that have been submitted. Here are 5 that we found to be interesting. We will continue posting more as they come in.

We have tagged those who have submitted these stories to us (unless they asked to be kept anonymous) 

Here we go:

anonymous asked:

I wanna start watching ancient magnum bride but what te heck is it about??????

The OVAs we have so far (two parts out of four three) are a companion story to the manga and don’t really follow the main plot (there may be a full anime series coming this fall though?? Unsure). 

The manga is about Chise, a gal with some special abilities bought by this fella Elias, a non-human magus/mage, who intends to teach Chise magic, keep her alive (people with her abilities tend to burn out and die young!), and eventually make her his bride.

This mighty be throwing up all kinds of Wow Unhealthy red flags for you. But the writing is handled fantastically and this odd situation that could have easily turned into one of your standard Weird Gross Anime IPs is instead something super cool and awesome. First off, Elias not being human and not understanding how humans work is a HUGE part of his character and development. Secondly, all Elias’ human pals are immediately like Elias What The Fuck You Can’t Buy People Because We Said You Need An Apprentice Chise Here Is My Number If You Need Help Don’t Hesitate To Call. And thirdly, Chise seems cool with all of this and agrees to teach Elias How To Human better while he teaches her magic and the whole bride thing is like almost never mentioned again.

Over time, the manga delves into things like “Why the fuck does Chise seem cool with this?”, “Chise why are you doing that stop?”, “Both of y’all have an unhealthy attachment to each other please get out of the house sometimes”, “Elias why are you acting like a pouting baby?”, “Elias, no you can’t control everything all the time.”, “By the way, what the fuck are you?” Also this one dude is trying to fuck everything up and there’s all these other ppl who want Chise for shit.

In short (lil too late for short lol), its about two emotionally stunted, lost, and confused people living on the outskirts of their respective societies, slowly realizing things about themselves and working past their flaws and figuring themselves out. And as they grow as people, they grow together as closer companions. Though framed as a romance, that’s really not the focus of it. The focus is more about them becoming healthy and good people. The growth feels natural and appropriate, and I love that. 

Also LOTS OF COOL MYTHOLOGY SHIT HELL YEAH. YAMAZAKI KORE DID HER DAMNED RESEARCH OK. If NONE of what i just said grabs you then you could read for the mythological shit alone. It’s great. 
I think that’s it. Other fans feel free to add to this,,,

You can read it here (which has a nice description itself)
And the OVA bits are on crunchyroll

Hope you check it out!

vel im so sorry to be asking this but i just dont know what to do you are so good at drawing and youre only 17 and im 16 and yet i feel stuck drawing the same shittty sketch over and over and i just want to know how you got so good at drawing people environments clothing anatomy e ver y th in g again im so sorry to ask this and i really dont mean any harm but its frustrating to see someone who is basically your age draw so much better

Hmmm, well you’re only 16, you know? I know people say this a lot- but you’re still very young, and it’s never too late to improve! People can still do amazing things as they get older. I also say this over and over- even if others seem to have “natural talent” practice as much as you can and you can put yourselves at their level, too. If you feel like your sketches are shitty, that means you are seeing the problems in your art and you are beginning to improve!

The way I got good at drawing environments and anatomy was observing things closely in real life, artbooks, and my favorite artists. This is VERY important. You can even try emulating other artstyles and reference as practice. One thing I would constantly do it color pick or eyedrop pictures I take to figure out how colors work with the atmosphere around them in different setting. REFERENCING IS KEY to success. It’s very easy to get frustrated, but please remember that age is not the determinant factor in success, and you can definitely get to where you want to be if you push yourself REASONABLY. The artist world is very competitive among people our age online (and I also know this from being in an art school) but let it be ONLY a factor in making you try harder. Best of luck to you, and any of you guys are free to message me for tips that I use to help myself improve! 

Their violence left a seed within you.
It would have remained a seed
Had they taken care of you,
Had they cradled you with soft arms
And told you, “It’s ok to cry”.
Had they done this,
You wouldn’t have nurtured the seed
With unshed tears.

The seed is a weed and it lives in your limbs.
There was no one to notice the growing stems
That were blossoming within you.
There was no one to warn you
That it was a dangerous plant.
There was no one –
No one but the weed.
You made room for it in your body. You named it loneliness.

Now the weed is everywhere -
You have veins, arteries, and stems.
Sometimes you choke on the leaves in your throat
And your skin hurts where the thorns stabbed through.
But loneliness cradles you with its ivy arms
Like no else did before
And it is the only presence that you have.
Yet you cannot quite tell if it feels safe
Or stifling.
Does the loneliness belong to you, or do you belong to it?
You doubt the relevance of the question –
The loneliness and you are mingling together.
Can anyone still tell you apart?  

The loneliness protects you. It is wrapped all around you
And nobody wants to hold brambles close.
It’s better this way - you remember their violence
And you think, “never again”.
But sometimes you see – hand in hand, fingers intertwined,
And you wish, and you long for.
But your palms are as sharp as daggers.
Your palms are not made for tender.

Loneliness suffocates you. You realize that once
And it is very late into the night.
You think of clawing your insides with your own nails –
Clawing deep and digging out the roots.
But you do not, and you lay still
Bathing in the poison that seeps from your pores.
Loneliness is your best friend.
It is the seed of their violence
And its ultimate consequence.
It makes sure that you are never hurt again
And you are afraid to pull the weeds up.
Who would you be, without them?
How deep are the roots, anyway?

You close your eyes and you try to push away the thought that tells you:
“It’s too late. Loneliness and you are one and the same.”
Because deep down, you already know.
Their violence left a seed within you
And their absence fed it everyday
But you –
You are the roots.
And you are afraid to pull yourself apart
To hold a hand that could let go of yours.

—  You are a garden of stillborn flowers. (k. m.)

anonymous asked:

How do you think the captains would react to a really calm S/O who never picks fights, until one day someone makes them REALLY angry by being nasty towards them or their relationship with the boys and they just flip. Then after; once they notice the boys saw it they just turn back into little balls of sunshine! (Sorry if it's too specific, I just think their reactions would be hella funny!) Love your work btw! 💕💕

i am sorry if i wrote too many captains?? i just have this thing about trying to include all the captains as well as i can!! sorry this is so late and hope you like this!!


-shocked but doesn’t really show it??

-tries to calm you down before processing whatever is going on

-once he lets that sink in he’s probably like “hOLD UP A SECOND AM I DATING A SUGA”

-he is stunned only afterwards

-when you turn back into a ball of sunshine he’s like mY BABY THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE IS SO PRECIOUS AND CUTE I AM SO LUCKY



-honestly, i think he would be waiting for you to break

-he’d be so proud when you finally yelled at the person??


-more proud and riled up than shocked

-he’ll probably be like why is my s/o so cute and hot at the same time after you “turn back”

- -may or may not have a boner-

Bokuto: hey look guys i don’t think i told you this before (jk i did) but LOOK IT’S MY Husband


-when i say shook i mean shook

-he was probably going to yell at the person who pissed you off first

-then when you burst he’s like FUCK WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS SHIT

-so shocked and turned on at the same time??

-i guess he’s a mix of daichi and oikawa??

-but when you turn back he’s still so confused

-like fuck i was not expecting that?? but now i have a boner idk why


-smug af

-literally giving that smug look to the person you’re yelling at

-like hell yeah this is my s/o don’t mess around bitch

-oikawa?? but more lowkey?? and more smug

-he pretends like he saw this coming but internally he’s like HOLY SHIT YOU CAN DO THAT?!?!?!


-outside: expressionless

-inside: jesus christ who are you

-is generally concerned for you

-because if you are always happen and someone made you crack, you must be very agitated

-keeps asking if you are okay even afterwards

-promises to never get you as agitated as you were then


-like kuroo he’s like smug as fuck

-because let’s all be honest here, this is futakuchi for god’s sake. he probably made you this mad before

-you don’t really get this mad??

-so when you started yelling he’s like hell yeah don’t mess with me bitch

-he’s also probably feeling blessed that for once you’re yelling at someone else and not him


-like daichi, he’s probably too busy calming you down

-he’s probably seen you crack before because of his kouhai by accident AHEM FUTAKUCHI

-so he’s not as surprised as daichi

-but he’s like a proud mum when you yell at the person and stand up for yourself


-this lil’ fucker also probably got you pissed of before

-not smug but more like WHOOP THAT’S MY BABY

-not a fangirl like oikawa but just happy to see you like this

-he probably cheers for you really loudly after you let out your anger and frustration

okay anon!! hope you liked this!! i hope i didn’t miss out any captain you were looking for!! if i did, go ahead and drop me another request!! sorry this took so long!! thank you!!

I saw you today in the Walmart parking lot, my sister pointed out your car as we were passing by. As I turned my head to look I made contact with your eyes. I wish I could say I was fine after, but I wasn’t. My heart started to beat faster and my stomach churned. I remembered all the terrible things you said the last time we spoke and I thought of all those years of friendship I wasted. I almost lost it right there, sitting in the passenger seat of my mom’s Scion. Then my mom told me that you weren’t worth the tears and usually I hate the fact that she isn’t more sympathetic, but I realized she was right. You don’t deserve my tears. I waste too many on people who don’t give a damn about me. One day you will realize that I was worth fighting for, but that day will be too late.

Why you shouldn't learn languages

I took classes in secondary school, so I remember something and that’s enough for me.
If you don’t use language daily or fresh it up regularly, your abilities naturally decline. You can’t recall vocabulary, you have to search for every word, reactions slow down. Active knowledge of the language is disappearing. 
And, if you’re so sure about your knowledge gained in the past, try a little test:

  • Tell your friend or yourself what you did last summer
  • Try to imagine you’re in an interview and try to explain what you’re good at
  • Try to tell something really nice (in more sentences) to your partner in your target language
