I'm going to a precollege program this July in Manhattan, New York and I'm so super nervous cause I never have a lot of confidence in my work, and it's really hard for me to try to improve when I know that there's others out there that are better than me, but your posts have really inspired me to keep working, and keep progressing, because practice makes perfect, and I just wanted to say thank you, you are awesome!

Thanks so much for your kind and candid message! I’m glad my art advice posts are able to help you. If you love what you do and you can’t see yourself doing anything but art, have faith in your ability and passion. There will always, ALWAYS be artists who you may think are “better” or more successful than you, but things really do work out if you stick to your guns and don’t lose hope, even in the lowest circumstances. I also just want to throw out a last piece of advice about having confidence in your work because that was my biggest block as well: art, and really any creative work, is pretty closely tied with your identity and how you view yourself as a person (or at least, with me it was like this, it can differ from person to person!). But, I’ve always found that the times when I felt the least confident in my work was when I felt the least confident in myself as a human being. When I was a student, I had a lot of instances where I felt my art was utter crap, just utter junk, I wasn’t going to get anywhere, my art is trash trash trash and then I’d faint on a chaise longue from frustration and have to be revived by smelling salts (not really, but you get the picture).
But see, my work wasn’t really crap; my own self-esteem issues were what was actually getting in the way and affecting my perception. So I think self-reflection and building self-respect and self-love help quite a bit in developing creative work. It doesn’t get discussed as often because it’s less obvious than an art technique or something material, but it’s a huge factor, especially when you enter the field as a professional because clients are going to think twice about hiring an artist who doesn’t truly believe in their work and themselves right? So if you ever feel your work is giving you grief, remember it’s okay, just feel the feeling, let it pass, do a little soul-searching to see if it’s being caused by something else, and you will be A-OK. Best of luck to you and your journey!

Hi, I'm a german enthusiast who is learning the language and wanting to implement it more in my daily life, just for practice, what are some common phrases of exclamation that people normally say? Gott im Himmel is one I've heard but I'm wondering if there are more?

I say “Mein Gott” a lot but somehow i can’t even think of more rn ,,, @ followers reblog / reply with your faves pls thank u

My boyfriend told me over text that he didn't know the Minotaur story
  • Boyfriend: I... I don't even know the story that well babe, I can't even say xD
  • Me: Okay so
  • Me: Poseidon gives a bull to King Minos, the best and shiniest bull you ever saw, and he's like "You can have this, but only if you promise to sacrifice it to me later" and Minos is like "Sure yeah okay man whatever" so Poseidon sends this bestest bull ever galloping up out of the salty sea spray, and everyone standing around is like "Hot fuck look at that bull" And Minos agrees, and he likes the bull SO much he decides to just quietly sort of...keep it. And he does kill a bull for Poseidon but it's one of his own, lame normal bulls, and Poseidon's no pushover so of course he notices.
  • Me: Poseidon is also notoriously easily angered, and he's royal pissed about this, so he comes up with one of the most devious punishments ever, and he infects Minos' wife Pasiphae with a desperate, DESPERATE thirst for the bull. Like she can think of nothing but getting some of that hot Bull D.
  • Boyfriend: ..........Thefuck.
  • Me: But it's hard to convince a bull, especially a divinely spawned bull, to fuck you if you are in fact not a cow but a human queen, so she comes up with a plan
  • Boyfriend: I thought some god comes down in bull form and fucks her??
  • Me: Ohh, no no no, that's the much much more tame story of Europa, who has sex with Zeus in bull form. This is different
  • Me: She goes to the best inventor she knows, Daedalus, and she's like "I need this bull to fuck me I NEED IT" and Daedalus is like "That's really weird maybe you should talk to someone" and she's like "I am talking to you and I am your queen so you better fucking make this happen for me I am going to peel my own skin off if I don't get some bull dick ASAP. But he doesn't want me because I am not fat, four-legged, and mooing."
  • Boyfriend: Oh..... oh no.
  • Me: So Daedalus shrugs, probably shudders a little, and builds the prettiest, most fuckable wooden cow a bull ever saw, but he makes it hollow, presumably with some openings in some awkward places.
  • Boyfriend: OH GOD. NO.
  • Me: So Pasiphae puts this monstrosity in the field with the bull, climbs in it, and waits. And Daedalus really is a skilled inventor, and he apparently knows what a bull likes, because Pasiphae finally gets the hot bull loving she's been dreaming of
  • Boyfriend: I........ I need an aspirin. That is disgusting.
  • Me: Only she apparently hasn't been tracking her cycles, because she gets pregnant, and births the minotaur and King Minos is like "What the fuck?" and Pasiphae is like "Honey I need to tell you something"
  • Me: And that is how it happened
  • Boyfriend: That is NOT HOW THAT WORKS
  • Me: Welcome to Mythology.
