lesson one

This isn’t a story about a client from hell, but I know for a fact that it is advice that comes from dealing with them.

When I was studying 3D animation and visualization, we did customer projects as a part of our education. For each project we had a tutor, someone who worked in the industry and knew the ropes. This is legitimately one of the lessons one of our tutors gave us:

Tutor: In our company, we have what we call an “Ugly Red Blob” method. When a design has been finalized, and it’s time to send it to the client for final review, the last thing we do is we add a big, red blob somewhere in the design. The client will look at the mock-up and say: “Okay, that’s good, but take out that red blob, it doesn’t work with the rest.” The client gets a feeling that they’ve contributed to the design in a significant way, and we can get on with our work, without the client trying to micro-manage every font and color.

Gandalf did you realise that the transition from ranger to King of Gondor was a PRETTY FREAKING BIG ONE

EDIT: guys please stop leaving snide comments trying to educate me on whether or not he was ready, this was just a bit of fun, sheesh. Can’t believe I actually had to say that)

tfw Ishida won't be trusted anymore
  • Ishida in Re ch122: *has Touka confessing to Kaneki*
  • TG fandom: no but Tsukiyama interrupted them so we can't be sure that Kaneki feels the same
  • Ishida in Re ch124: *has Touka straddling Kaneki and going for a kiss*
  • TG fandom: no but maybe he's going to block Touka's kiss because his pal Amon once did the same with Akira
  • Ishida in Re ch125: *draws an entire chapter about Kaneki and Touka having sex*
  • TG fandom: no but what if it's Itori and not Touka?
  • Ishida: (≖_≖ )

Anime has taught us a lot over the years...

It’s prepared us for:

‘Sadness’

‘Goodbyes’

And ‘Death’

It’s taught us to:

‘Fight’

Educated us on the true meaning of:

‘Sacrifice’ 

‘Friendship’

‘Love’

And ‘Teamwork’

Most importantly, it reminds us that

 To be who we are

We are never alone

And to never give up

If you had a daughter, what would be the number one life lesson you’d want her to know? I would want her to know that she is a force to be reckoned with and never to underestimate her own power. Sometimes, particularly young girls feel like their voice doesn’t matter, and what they have to say doesn’t really matter, and I think I would want her to know that it does.

And this is how “si tu eres mi bro, yo soy tu pisha” started:

Isco: Marco and I are good friends, he is my pisha and I’m his bro.

Marco: We had a discusion in a rondo, so I approached him and told him: Isco, if you are my bro, I am your pisha, so from then on we always say it. It’s very funny

One of our earliest DnD sessions. When Ryla met Jaffro. I really didn’t want the party to worry about food in this adventure, so I sent them an out… But they got a team pet instead.

That sheep is still with them, and as a bonus he’s nearly gotten them killed on many an occasion.
