know your potential (and your limitations)

Your Zodiac Sign: No Sugar Coating | TheZodiacCity
  • Aries: You're always on the hunt for some new thrill, most of the time to cover up the fact that you actually live a boring, unfulfilled life; you love being the over-protective one but don't really know your limits; you're fun to be around, I'll give you that but that's only if your constant need to nitpick at something doesn't get in the way
  • Taurus: Oh Taurus, you have so much potential but that's usually sidetracked by your half-assed attempts at most things; you have a problem with every little freakin' thing that doesn't go your way (boo hoo); and you'd be a breeze to talk to if you didn't have constant diarrhea of the mouth (tell you my secrets? hell no)
  • Gemini: Talking a lot isn't your problem, talking about 5 topics in 2 minutes is your problem...you lose people with your maze of discussions; most people like you, they do, but you can be so judgmental and very difficult to understand; and for goodness sake, please stop acting like you're so "unbothered" by every damn thing...you are human right?
  • Cancer: We know you get sick of hearing how emotional you are...truth is, you hold your emotions down very well but when you want to become the poster child for "hissy fits", there's no stopping you; Cancer, can you hear me? Listen (or look rather), you don't have to know every muthaf*ckin' thing. I mean damn, you act like it's a sin to not INCLUDE you in something
  • Leo: You're a good person Leo, but you have a messed up attitude and it radiates to others more than you know. Between your weird facial expressions, dramatic-ness (I made that up) and your touchy moments, you're like a pile of stink garbage sometimes that no one wants to be around; your heart is big and people love you for that -- focus more on self-gratification though because you wear yourself out trying to be "Saint Leo who really doesn't want to do something but does it so you don't hear someone's mouth"
  • Virgo: Virgo, you try to care but most of the time you're making it look good. Are you compassionate? Are you sensitive to the needs of others? Yes, but far and few between do moments happen where you're deeply affected by it; You're a smart one Virgo, serious brain power you have there -- if only you could turn down those annoying thoughts that drive you bat shit crazy on the inside
  • Libra: You're probably doing something for someone right this minutes. Are you? If not, it won't be long. There's nothing wrong with "looking out" for people but sh*t, who's looking out for you?; and speak up dammit, why focus so much of your lovely energy on keeping things bottled up? Oh I see, you don't want to be disliked...well guess what, somebody out there hates your guts (just being honest) so you obviously can't please everybody
  • Scorpio: My dear Scorpio, you're a lot my friend. A whole lot to deal with -- and that's why many people back away. Don't tell me you haven't noticed; If you had a penny for all those crazy thoughts that run through your head, you'd definitely be able to pay someone's rent, at the least; You're another one with a good heart though, can't deny that but you need to work on being more of the genuine person you expect everyone else to be
  • Sagittarius: I like you Sagittarius, you're fun, you're bold, you're adventuruous but you can be such a big pain in the ass. You have such an irrational way of thinking. You expect everybody to be on your team and if they're not, c'est la vie. Why can't someone disagree with you? Are you the almighty, righteous one? I think not.
  • Capricorn: Having you around is some people's dream and some people's nightmare. I think it's safe to say you have an equal number of close friends and enemies. Well not enemies per se, but definitely people who can't stand your guts. You have a spunk about you but you can be extremely self-absorbed and even more demanding. You slobber on your pillow, just like the rest of us. Get a grip.
  • Aquarius: There's a lot I could say about you Aquarius, but I'll make this short and sweet. Focus more on relating to people and less on being so wrapped up in yourself. Are you a nice person, yes. But those who know you or are around you enough see the vindictive person you can be; if someone even looks at you funny, you're ready to write them off. You can't systematically cut ties with everyone and then wonder why you're a lonesome dud, I mean dove.
  • Pisces: You have a lot to say about other people, man oh man. What this person should be doing, what that person should stop doing but what about you? You're 85% of the time a walking contradiction; and stop feeling like everyone should do what you think in your mind they should do, last time I checked nobody was able to think for you. If you have certain expectations, that's on you. But if you don't SAY what you feel, who can you really be mad at?

The Curse of Limbo: Emerald

Occasionally good things will happen to you, but you won’t know how to take care of it. We plot out an elaborate story of doing it right. It was perfect. I just don’t think that I deserve it. You met my thoughts during a strange part of my life. I don’t know if making a right turn will be the wrong turn. I don’t know if being selfish will fix anything. We’re a bit lost. Are you okay with this? Your smile has not changed a bit. So full of life. You’re more scenery than a single painting. How can we embrace the night without shunning the sun for stealing the moon away? How can I take so much of your time without feeling guilty? You’re more than a song of crickets. You are the instruments. You have potential. Do not limit yourself to a single part of the sky. It changes everyday. Change is upon us like lips that will never kiss, but will always be every bit ready. I have said it once. I will say it again. We are not perfect. We see it. We live by it. Imperfections… a human’s unique blemish– the soul. Rose tanned cheeks. A laugh from high garden– some lovers can’t be pardoned. We must learn to protect our emotions. We must learn from the ocean. We must learn from the earth. We must learn from the rain. We must learn from the wind. We just learn from the seasons. We must learn from the roses. We must learn from the leaves. We must learn from art. We must learn with our souls for our hearts. We must bend the tree. We must sail on paper boats. We shall sink some day. Maybe like the Titanic. And like Jack. We shall die some day.

Every time I tell a potential sex partner that I have herpes and it turns out to be a deal breaker for them, I hope that out of the blue, you experience deep remorse for not giving me the option to do the same.

Your cowardice is now limiting my sex life. Just like you did while we were together and it makes me feel horrible and disgusting.

I want to forgive you, but its embarassing to say to people I don’t know well. You couldn’t tell me and you used words that represented love for me.

I want to burn your photographs every time this virus stops my ability to be intimate.

I will tell all of my partners. All of them.

I wish you’d gotten me pregnant instead so at least the cells you deposited in me that would last for a whole lifetime would have a chance to make the world a better place and bring me joy and pride, rather than destroy a very important part of my life forever.

“He was once depressed, but functional. Once full of potential, at least the papers said so. His teachers.. they just- Where did we go wrong? We keep punishing him and punishing him, he won’t stop smoking. How do we fix him?”

Turn off your hearing aids
You never listen they’re a waste
Know you read all my work from a distance
You raised your own resistance Everywhere I look up your fist is
Born through strife it gave me life but there were limits to how much I could take in one night
I used to take your rhetoric frontal
‘til I learned to numb my skull
I made Ox to escape your bull
X’s and O’s got stripes to show
Extra ego to help me take the blow
Brutality in tongue chop it off its ruefull
Rudimentary you follow one route
You terrified me some days that’s truthful
Perpetrate purpose to feel less worthless atom for atom spliced voice unrecognized
this fortress unfortunately brought false fortune
filthy the tapestry
blurry the aura
when reminiscing upon fauna
flora to the fibers
conspiring with conivers
red sweat not vain
but lately
Oh lately
Its been all pain no gain

Static
Spell it out for you (143)sarcastic
Static
All your measures drastic
Static
You snap and bounce back like elastic
And leave me to pick up my fragments
Send your case to the doctor in a basket
If you wanna see a trick I can flip you off call it gymnastics
Kill or be killed you established the tactics


“I understand. I wonder what he is feeling to have the urge and need to smoke so much.
A rule of thought is that every behavior and action often tells a story… some are more apparent than others… but always inadvertently asking for something without knowing how to best articulate the need.
Michael’s emotions and passions or things he believes strongly in often dictate his actions… until the self regulatory skills function more independently he needs more support than you would expect an 18 year old to need.
I know it may seem frustrating but he is still fragile and figuring things out right now.”

@orochislayer replied to your postPrince cuts diamond with diamond. Bard crushes it…

for the seer/mage thing, maybe a seer would know everything ABOUT the diamond (melting point, density, purity etc.) and a mage would know everything you can actually DO with it

well not really

the reason why Seer is basically “Knows all potentially knowable knowledge” and Mage is “Knows the Unknowable Knowledge” is because that is how Active and Passive are used in the context of Comprehension/ Knowledge/ Understanding 

again, Active meaning you can force your aspect to do your function in a way that wouldnt naturally happen for that aspect. 

Knowledge, naturally, can be learned, be understood, be discovered within certain limits. Our universe has 3 physical dimensions and 1 Time dimension that everyone in it can perceive and perceive with.

No matter how technology advance or what tools we come up with, we’re not going to be able to percieve and observe what a 4th physical dimension is gonna actually look like in its natural state, we can only ever get ideas of what it’s “3D shadow” might look like

for example this

is the fourth dimensional equivalent of this:

It’s a cube, that is not changing, but merely spinning, but drawn and rendered on a plane lower than what it is

A 3d Cube is 3 dimensional, just like the bottom gif, but the bottom gif itself is a 2d drawing, its not a cube, it is a literal shadow of a cube that only had edges and not faces as if you shone a light on it and this is what youd see on the flat 2d surface of the ground

the top gif is a 3d render of a 4rth dimensional cube merely spinning, just like the bottom one, but the 3d render isnt actually it, that’s what its shadow would look like if casted onto a 3d realm

its almost impossible to wrap your head around the concept, much less imagine what the real actual object must look like from every angle

so that’s the difference

A Seer can potentially learn what we can learn, they can understand the concept of the “3d shadow” of the 4th dimsenional object

A Mage can see the fourth dimensional object and know everything about it in its natural realm, literally knowledge that is 100% impossible and unknowable

that is them being Active in their knowledge, that is them breaking the rules of comprehension, they are, in a sense, forcing their aspect to give up knowledge that it wouldn’t naturally, in this universe, give up

I’m getting so sick of horseblr. 

I’m going to say this once; your horse does not care or know what their limitations are. They aren’t going to even know your “holding them back from their potential” whatever that even fucking means.

Akumasona week 1?

Hey guys! I would love to do this with the Miraculous fandom. I’ve already seen TONS of amazing akumasonas around and it would be awesome to have a themed week for ourselves~

I’ve started coming up with a few prompts but nothing is set in a specific order !!but!! I know for sure the first one is an intro

This is for both writers and artists! And I will have a prompt that suggests interaction with other miraculers’ akumasonas

This is also not just limited to akumasonas (ie: evil-ized) but your superhero, miracusona (may change the name), version! Participants may choose one or both!

Potential prompts:
-Your akumasona/miracusona
-your kwami if you choose hero
-do you have a partner? (OC interaction!)
-your weapons and features
-who was the previous miraculous holder?
-what made you become akumatized

And more! Please drop by the ask box to give suggestions

The tentative date is 1 month away: March 20th OR April 20, 2 months.

This blog will continue prompts if the first week is successful! We will post more prompts with different themes (maybe even following s2 stuff)

Please LIKE this post if you are interested in participating! Please REBLOG to share with ml fans!

I will post more details if this gets enough participants and interest. If not, it will run as a OC hub/interaction blog :)

@mlstaffappreciation, here’s the post!

After five years of secret negotiations that have kept you, me and even parliament in the dark— the proposed Canada- European Union Trade Agreement (or CETA) has just been leaked. What does this massive trade deal have to do with me, you ask? You’ll be shocked. Your family’s health care. Your community’s water. Even your right to “buy local.” Nothing is off limits in what adds up to the worst corporate sell- out of our country and our rights ever seen. Now we know why he’s been hiding it… Under the deal Canada and European corporations will be given unprecedented rights to challenge barriers to their profit- making— including local, provincial and federal regulations that protect our environment and uphold the public good. And the most dangerous part? Giant corporations like Nestle and Shell will be able to sue Canada for potentially billions in lost profits. Trade isn’t a dirty word. But CETA isn’t about trade. Stephen Harper is locking us into a corporate rights deal. Where you and I and our families stand to be hit hardest is our health care. The cost of pharmaceuticals is pegged to skyrocket by as much as $1.65 billion under the Canada- EU deal. Why? Because Stephen Harper caved to the greed of European drug companies, agreeing to extend patent protections on brand name drugs. Your city council will no longer be able to favour local businesses. European companies must be given equal consideration to bid on local jobs and contracts. If they aren’t, they have the right to file a corporate lawsuit based on discrimination. The same goes for your right to say “no” to industrial projects in your community. Right now U.S.- based fracking company Lone Pine Resources is using a similar corporate lawsuit provision in NAFTA to sue Canada for $250 million because a Quebec moratorium on fracking is preventing the company from drilling. Imagine your tax dollars paying Big Oil millions to not destroy our environment! No so- called trade deal is worth this.

“I just… uh, uh… If this our last moment together, I just want you guys to know I’m sorry! I’m sorry I was so hard on you! Ugh. Everytime I pushed you I… I threatened you, I yelled at you, I pushed you beyond your limits, it’s because I believe in you! I believe in each one of you! I believe in you spirit and your intelligence and your potential! And every time I talked about walking away it was because I was scared! I just didn’t think I was good enough to stand next to you and call you brothers, and say to you, I love you! I love you guys so much!“

Sometimes, life is just hard. It just weighs down on me and sometimes I want to find so much injustice in the difficulty. Why am I struggling? Why am I experiencing this? Don’t I deserve some peace? Don’t I deserve more? And sometimes, I want to skip all of that. All the disappointments. The troubles and hurdles. The weary and hurt. “I can’t wait for the future, but please don’t throw anything bad in my way.”

So sometimes I ask myself if I’m asking too much. If I keep wanting to gain something without wanting the attachments. I’ve learned that, to an extent, being selfish is okay. But it’s a fine line that could easily be taken advantage of. I’ve also learned the wisdom in all those disappointments. The troubles and hurdles. The weary and hurt. You grow from them. You realize both your potentials and your limits. I’m not sure if knowing that would make the next struggle more manageable or easier to overcome, but it’s somewhat of a relief to know that I’ll be okay. I’m here now. I’ll be there wherever I may be - I’ll get there. Because life is beautiful like that sometimes. It’s rewarding and thrilling. It gives back.

Cosplay Advice

I have been pretty quiet over the weekend because of just taking some time off and relaxing after back to back convention weekends. But there was something that I wanted to quickly bring up that I have noticed a lot when I have been meeting people at conventions and getting the chance to talk to them. A lot of cosplayers who are just starting out will always say the same thing to me. “I love your work. I could never make anything like that.” And do you know what I tell them?

“Of course you can.”

If you put limitations on yourselves, then you will never know your true ability and potential. I came from a no sewing background and I pushed and pushed myself to get better. I never studied with anyone and I had to learn things on my own. And you know what? Every time I make something, after all the blood, sweat, tears, and long nights, I can look at myself in the mirror and say: “I made this. And I made this for me. I made this to make me happy. And that’s all that matters.”

There is something so truly rewarding about working hard and learning new techniques. Heck, when I tried on my full La Muerte for the first time, I will openly admit that I cried. Because I made her for me. And that’s what matters in this hobby. Make it for you. Not for the likes on a page or to get photographers attention. Or not even to be the center of attention. Make something that really means the world to you. For all the time, effort, and money you put into these costumes, it should be something for you.

Make something from the heart. Because no matter the outcome, it will mean so much more to you than anything else. And never say you can’t. Always say: “Someday….I’ll get there.”
