anonymous asked:

here's a q...... I get really anxious whenever I play against real people for some reason lmao,,,, but I do wanna play comp!! I'm just nervous that people are going to be assholes and i feel like it'll just stress me out. Did u feel the same way + if u did, how did u overcome it?

WHOO BOY i get really shakey when i play comp tbh. Since i’m perceived as feminine/a girl i stay off mic and listen to everyone else. Sometimes people will understand that I can hear them when i use commands like “mccree is flanking, watch out” i’ll just be like ‘understood’ or something. 

But even this has its downfalls because sometimes i’ll listen to people like ‘mercy you died with rez wtf’ and i’ll be screaming on my end ‘YA COS YOU DIDNT KILL THE TRACER THAT IVE BEEN SCREAMING ‘GROUP UP WITH ME’ ABOUT GOD DAMN’ or youll get a lot of critics. i had this one guy die right and he was playing tank and we were contesting so i rezzed and he was like ‘wtf whyd you solo rez me’ and im thinking ‘because we were down a pick, contesting a point and its 5v6, our dva is out of mech and you’re a rein. ofc im gonna rez you you shitbag’ its unavoidable.

my best advice is: stay off comms completely. it’s easier to avoid everyone on console because if you stay out of the chat channels, no one can talk to you unless they send you a message which rarely ever happens. more often than not, i get messages from the other team which are surprisingly nice!! 

but all in all…. u cant always avoid assholes. I get shit on in qp of all places more often than you’d think, weirdly enough even though… its quick play…. it doesnt count for shit…… 

but yeah, i still get anxious and worried. honestly sometimes the best thing to do is talk to your teammates because then you can explain what happened and stuff but if youre like me and you know there are… downsides…. more than upsides of this, then yeah i’d really just stay off comms completely!

you might unavoidably get a message or two thats not very nice but like you just gotta remember its a game. maybe take a break if it really gets to you. thats what i do cos god knows i basically base my self worth off this game

hope this helps!!

being in a fandom for more than a few years is kind of a surreal experience, honestly. you see fanart that you’ve sent in texts years ago, you see posts that you qualify now as ‘classics’ because of how old they are, you see people getting excited over new information that, honestly, you’ve known for a long while… you see one of those same-old same-old arguments bubbling up between people in the fandom and you just think to yourself “oh not again”, and then you lean back in your rocking chair, watching from the sidelines like your joints ache too much from all the battles of your past. a fuckin fandom grandparent. someone get me some applesauce


some self indulgent yooran for my deprived self


A self indulgent Blacksmith! Kirishima because i have always been fascinated by blacksmiths and swordsmiths. Perhaps i could be one in another life.
I also wanna practice my coloring, and what better way to do that than drawing kirishima with some dramatic lighting lmaooo

im wondering why im so bad at adult tours at work…

then i realize i havent done an adult tour in 2.5 weeks and will not have another one for 2 months. okay, maybe just one between now and then.

i dont know how to change that because zoos really appeal more to children, not so much adults.

adult tour requests have declined in popularity within the recent years. theyre
not appealing anymore.

how can i encourage adults to learn about animals?

what would you enjoy to see/do at a zoo?

honestly I think my favorite thing about Jasper is that she’s such a fucking drama hoe

So far she has:

-gotten a cape specially made for the sole purpose of wanting to look dramatic and fabulous in front of her enemies.

- put on eyeliner for a fight.

-literally paused what she was doing just so “Rose” could take a menacing picture of her, before disappearing into the unknown.

- made an exit walking backwards into the ocean, and paused to say a one liner before sinking down completely when it was so totally unnecessary of her to do so.

If/ when Jasper gets redeemed all I’m saying is peridot is gonna have good run for her money in terms of the biggest dork in the group

ok listen, captain flint/james mcgraw was john silver’s backstory. he is the person that made him who he is. he says he was no one because he believes that to be true. he believes that he was ‘nothing’ before flint. his past wasn’t important, it wasnt what defined him. silver didn’t have a cause before he met him. until flint gave it to him, he had no story. in the same way flint had no story before thomas. no story worth telling, no story worth fighting for. so cant you see it? silver not telling flint his past wasn’t because he didn’t trust him. not because he didn’t love him. it was because flint was his beginning. he was where his war began. and how do you tell someone that? how would james tell thomas that he is the reason for all of it. how would silver tell flint that not only is he fighting for madi, but he is also fighting for him.
