learn to get shit done

People can oversimplify Aries sometimes. Yes, Aries is a sign that is known to be straightforward and simple, but Aries as a sign isn’t simple. If Aries was simple, it would be easily understood by others. However, there’s always some misunderstanding about Aries.

Aries are often symbolized to be the baby of the zodiac. This makes sense. They’re the first sign in the zodiac, and they’re the sign to start off the spring season. In the spring, things are created and born. There’s an initiation of creation. However, it can be hard to understand a baby at first. Until you have numerous experiences with a baby, it can definitely be hard to get along with one. An Aries is the same way and in this sense, they are constantly misunderstood by others.

In my opinion, it’s intriguing to find a sign who is associated with war and conflict, but then with childish innocence at the same time. It’s hard to place two very different images of Aries together: the warrior and the baby. The warrior is strong, aggressive, and dangerous. The baby is weak, harmless, and innocent. The warrior has seen the bloody details of war, while the baby has just been born into the world, not knowing a thing. With this, Aries can present a contradicting image that can be misunderstood by others. While Aries is skilled in combat against others, Aries also lacks the awareness of the people around them.

Although these two images are very different, I think this is where the “survivor” archetype of Aries comes from. When you are a survivor, you have faced peril and overcame it. The circumstances of course can vary, but the connotation with the word survivor can imply someone who has faced unfamiliar experiences (the baby) but has worked skillfully against difficulty and lived (warrior.)

The baby and warrior archetypes ultimately work together to create the survivor archetype. The survivor archetype may be the ultimate archetype an Aries is to reach in their lives. There are negative characteristics of the baby and warrior archetypes, but if the good characteristics are harmoniously put together, I think the survivor archetype will be achieved.

While the manifestation of Aries can be simple compared to the other signs, I believe Aries as a sign itself is complex. I feel that there are a lot of seemingly contradicting images of Aries that can be ignored because they’re seen to be the “most simple sign” out of all the signs.

After several years on Tumblr and being a part of three different fandoms I’ve learned that people on Tumblr get shit done and that many fandoms are willing to help each other out. So today I’m asking you all for help to give a great new show with LGBTQ leads a much-needed ratings boost to keep it from getting cancelled!

“Eyewitness” is a crime drama that airs on USA Network on Sunday nights and has at the heart of its plot a very complex and compelling love story between two teenage boys (one accepting of his own sexuality, the other deeply closeted). It’s extremely rare to see so much focus put on building a relationship between two gay teens, and the way it’s being portrayed is raw and honest and real. 

I constantly see posts from people complaining about not having enough LGBTQ representation on television, but here’s a show that is putting a gay teen couple front and center and does not shy away from showing emotional or physical intimacy — and it is failing miserably because of low ratings.

“Eyewitness” is a really great show so I would recommend it to anyone anyway (regardless of the lgbtq aspect). If you like tightly written dramas with interesting and complex characters and good actors then you will love it!

Here is a GREAT POST about why people should watch the show! I would appeciate it so much if you could spare a couple of minutes to read it and consider watching “Eyewitness” this Sunday because apparently (according to the producers) this coming episode is more or less judgment day. There needs to be an increase in ratings NOW!!!

I’ve never before asked other fandoms for this kind of help but I know that so many people would love this show if only they knew about it and would give it a try, and I really believe it deserves to have more viewers and the chance for a second season. 

So tonight I want to ask all of you who read this and who are in the US to please tune in to “Eyewitness” tomorrow night (Sunday Nov. 13th) on USA Network (you can watch the previous episodes on the USA Network app or homepage before). It’s a 10-episode season so it will wrap up around mid-December. If for some reason you can’t watch it live then please TiVo it and watch it the next day. Ask people you know to watch the show.  Get word of mouth going. Let’s show the networks that primetime dramas with lgbtq leads are something people really want to see!

And please reblog this post (even if you yourself are not planning on watching) so that as many people as possible from all parts of Tumblr will see it!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

  • The Broadway Referencer: The one kid who references a broadway show to ANYTHING person says.
  • The Piranha: Usually a soprano 1, the "diva" of the choir. they will kill others to get the solo/lead role.
  • The Alto: The person that learns their part and gets shit done.

My first ever weekly spread EVER! Its only two dailys and the weekend though, since I got my bullet journal on Wednesday and May 1st is tomorrow! A new month, yay!!

Gosh, I have only had my studyblr for a week and I am loving the community so much! I cleaned my room, studied for finals, AND went to dinner with some friends tonight because I’ve already learned so many helpful and motivating tips and tricks to getting shit done! Everyone is so kind and such sweeties! I feel like I can do anything, which I can!!

(I was so proud of the tree I drew, even though its very autumn-y and its April right now. But, whatever I like it still!)

Oh, yeah! I’m gonna tag @studypetals because I LOVE HER BLOG WHAT THE HELL - and - there is this contest thingy she is doing that you should check out! (I’m on mobile I can’t link to the contest post, sorrysorry)

Stage Managers: Learn when to say no.

Specifically, learn when to say, “No, that’s your job, not mine.” Things need to get done, but all the slack of the company does not have to fall on you. Sometimes people just need to hear those words, and they’ll learn to suck it up and get shit done themselves.*

(*Note:  This only applies to dealing with lazy people who want their jobs done for them.  You should always have your team’s back.)

PROTIP: DO WHATEVER THE FUCK U NEED TO IN ORDER TO DRAW SOMETHING AND APOLOGIZE FOR NOTHING

U MORE COMFORTABLE DRAWING CHARACTERS FROM THE RIGHT FACING LEFT? DO THAT SHIT. YOU GOT MULTIPLE CHARACTERS FACING DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS IN A SHOT? FLIP THE DAMN CANVAS. DRAW SIDEWAYS UPSIDEDOWN FLIPPLY FLOPPIED OR WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT. THERE AINT RULES TO THIS SHIT. 

COPY AND PASTE THAT FIRST PERFECT EYE SO THAT YOU HAVE A SECOND PERFECT EYE. DOES IT STILL LOOK WEIRD? TRANSFORM OR DRAW OVER IT. 

CANT GET THAT DAMN HAND TO LOOK LIKE ANYTHING OTHER THAN A VILLANOUS CLAW-LUMP? PASTE YA DAMN REFERENCE PHOTO STRAIGHT IN TO THE PICTURE AND DRAW OVER THAT SHIT. IT AINT CHEATING, YOURE LEARNING SHIT AND GETTING STUFF DONE WHATEVER WAY YOU CAN. YOU’RE DOING GREAT. KEEP IT UP AND DONT LET ANYONE TELL YOU YOURE CHEATING.
