liking u makes my life difficult

totally out of the blue but...

@ everyone who has a HUGE crush on someone: ASK THEM OUT / tell them u like them!!

worst thing that could happen //if they’re a good person?// they say no & THAT’S OK! I’m sure that u two can still be buds and/or you’ll get over them & find some1 even dreamier!!

& if they humiliate you 4 asking them out they’re obviously as dumb & useless as mosquitos so drop kick them out of ur life & all the way 2 Timbuctoo and try to move on!!

+ THERE’S ALWAYS THAT CHANCE THAT THEY WILL GO OUT W/ U LIKE HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?!

UR LOVELY & DESIRABLE!! have fun with this random advice buds

(there’s also like an entire paragraph of advice & reassurance in the tags… just sayin)

#justnonconfrontationalthings: 

  • when they get your order wrong somewhere but you’re so overly sympathetic to the plight of food service work you take the coffee that you did not want and thank them bc the thought of making someone’s job difficult will make you lose sleep 
  • being with someone who does make note of when things aren’t to their liking (getting seated at a table in a restaurant they don’t want & requesting to move) and getting panicky as fuck that the wait staff thinks you’re the biggest inconvenience in the world and hate u/ spending all meal being embarrassed on behalf of the person making the imposition

anonymous asked:

how did you and your sister get into photography? i wanna get into it and eventually freelance in my spare time when i get enough experience but don't how to begin and 2) have you both done wedding photography and if not is that something you'd be interested in doing? also do you think it's better to be self taught or is it okay to take a photography class at my local community college? like i feel like almost everyone is self taught and idk if taking a class is a waste

Hi!

We have always been into anything art related. Our parents bought us small digital cameras for our birthday when we were in 5th or 6th grade I believe. We were always taking photos of nature, vacations, and various events. When we got to high school (right around the time dslr cameras were becoming available to everyday consumers not just professionals) my dad bought one for himself. At first our dad wouldn’t let us use it without him there but eventually when we got the hang of using it and he let us take it places without him there. Natasha started taking photos of school events and posting them on Facebook. I started doing the same but a little bit after her. Eventually she bought her own entry level dslr and I bought my dads old dslr when he upgraded his. By sophomore year we were both posting lots of photos on Facebook. We also started asking our friends if we could photograph them. We would style our friends and have mini photoshoots. This was all just for fun for us. We have always been into editorial makeup/photography and styling our own shoots was our way of getting into that. Then during the summer after sophomore year a student asked Natasha to take his senior pictures which she ended up doing did. And later more and more people asked both of us to take their senior pictures. We had no idea how to price anything or what to include in packages initially. After 2-3 years we both were honing in our photography style and were getting better at pricing and guaranteeing a certain level of quality to our clients. When we got to college we would go home and take senior pictures during the summers. In college we took peoples headshots. So it was overtime that we started our photography businesses. We didn’t start photography with the intention of making a business out of it/going into it professionally. We still ask our friends to photograph them and have mini photo shoots that we style. Its important to us to constantly create personal work as well as client work. During all of this we both tried our hand at surreal/photo manipulation photography but it wasn’t for us. By the end of high school and throughout college we also shot a few wedding but both didn’t like photographing weddings. By the time we finished college both of us realized that our favorite genre of photography is portraits. So now we mainly shoot headshots, portraits, and senior pictures professionally and create editorial shoots for our personal work. 

Even though we both went to art school neither of us has taken a photography class. The photo department at U of M mainly focused on documentary photography which we were not interested in. Plus the photo professors were known to be sexist and/or racist. We are about 95% percent self taught. One of our digital media professors did help us learn some stuff in photoshop but that’s about it. When either Natasha or I start a hobby we go into it full force lol. So right when we got into photography we followed a TON of photographers online and were constantly trying to figure out how they edited there photos so we could improve our editing. Over the course of 8 years we have really developed our photography styles and editing skills. Early on we would sometimes try and copy other photographers which helped us figure out what we liked and disliked for our own photography. I don’t encourage people to copy other artists especially if they are going to sell their work. But it can be helpful when figuring out your own style but it’s important to make sure you are not ripping someone off and give credit where credit is due. When I would use another artists idea I always explained in the description who the artist was and linked to their work. A photographer I know was notorious for copying another well known photographer but her audience thought she was super original because they didn’t know about the well known photographer. Plus you will never be as good as the original photographer/artist and will end up constantly comparing yourself which is no fun lol.

Even though both of us are self taught I don’t think taking photography classes is a bad idea if you think it will help you learn. One of my favorite illustrators, Sam Spratt, took many illustration classes when he was at SCAD but that doesn’t mean he is any better or worse than other illustrators that are completely self-taught. I always wanted to take commercial/fashion lighting classes but they were never offered at my university. I also would love to take some photography workshops but they the ones I want to take (Lara Jade’s in particular) are too expensive for me. Also as an artist I’ve generally been self-taught. I had a few great drawing teachers and professors in high school (I took a college drawing class in high school) who helped me a lot. But when it comes down to being an artist you really have to push yourself to make stuff outside of class. This was a challenge for a lot of my classmates once we graduated. A lot of them didn’t know how to create work outside of class. (I’m simplifying a lot here bc i could go on and on about how much i disliked or liked u of m’s art school lol) My whole life I’ve been making stuff outside of class so creating a photography business wasn’t super difficult for me. 

This brings me to the business/freelance part. Turning something you are passionate about into a business can be great and horrible. A lot of my friends don’t freelance because the business side of it destroys their interest in the art. Some of my clients are very particular and they don’t always like the photos I take. But this is something I have to get past. Also over time you start to get better clients because they come to you knowing what they will get. Early on people would hire me because they knew I took photos not because they liked my style of photography (I hope that makes sense). Now people know what they are getting and it’s less likely that a client will be unsatisfied with their photos. As a freelancer keep in mind that it’s a lot of emails and advertising yourself. Yes it’s great that I can make money off of something I love doing but I have to keep in mind that it’s still a business. When I first started out clients would ask for lower prices and I would lower them because I didn’t want to lose a client and I didn’t know if I was too expensive or not. This was fine at first but now I don’t budge on my prices because now I know my worth and it’s not fair to my other clients to change prices. Also photography gear can get expensive and when you freelance/do photography professionally there is a point when you’ll probably to invest in professional gear. Part of this is to put you among other photographers in the industry but the physical quality of your photos will also improve. This way you can better guarantee what a client will get. Ex. my dad’s old dslr that I used had a cropped sensor so if the lighting wasn’t the best i couldn’t edit the photos as much in photoshop as I can with a full frame camera. Basically I just want to make it clear that once you start freelancing it’s a business so just like other business you have to know when and where to invest and how much. 

I’m sure you were not expecting this long of answer but I hope it helped! 

guys, my buddies, my little loves… i read all the time how you think about dating your tc and how cute it’d be. like i read some time ago about how you’d stay behind after school and tease each other and it’d result into tickle fights or stuff like that. 

it’s not like i don’t think it’s possible.

but imagine this: actually dating someone who is (or was) teaching you is even more pain than just dreaming about it. 

i’m not making this shit up, listen to me. i speak from experience. it’s almost six in the afternoon and i’m sitting at home, contemplating whether to let this all out, because my relationship with my former teacher has been causing me so much heartbreak.

if you want to know more, read on.

just consider all of this, it’s not all straight outta dream land.

  • it’s fucking impossible to keep it a secret at school
  • people will talk. they will look at you weird and talk behind your back. even your friends will. everyone will.
  • your dates will always have a lot of looking around for familiar faces involved.
  • wanna have dinner and a glass of wine? better fucking prepare for the staff looking weird at you bc age difference (in my case a lil over 20 years, the staring is no fucking fun)
  • even if u may be convinced otherwise, you’re not on the same intellectual level. you’re not. just no.
  • it’s not only about u and ur happiness. your significant other has feelings too, and most likely a big fucking mess in their head. you have to respect that and keep that in mind, always. A L W A Y S
  • sure that things like texting all day happens, but then you’re showing something to your classmate on your phone and a message from them beeps and you’re fucked
  • basically if you’re dating an older person and they are or were your teacher, it’s not cute, it only makes everything more difficult

currently, my significant other is one of the best things in my life. but that doesn’t mean it’s all sunshine and rainbows. it’s difficult and frustrating and sometimes hell on earth, you’ll cry a lot and you’ll hate yourself and you’ll be angry at the world. but, at the end of the day, if they’re the right person, you’ll feel at home every time you’re with them.

maybe this makes no sense but i’m so done and messed up that i just had to let it all out. 

Not my father; Sherlock x reader

Here is yet another Sherlock request I had gotten, now this one was especially difficult for me to write because so much was going on in my personal life I couldn’t find the inspiration to write it to make it feel good but thankfully I fell through and found a path I liked when I got the prompt.  Now this request contains child neglect, swearing, violence, mentions of drug use so BEWARE. Anyways I hope u all enjoy this request either way.

_________________________________________________________

It was all an experiment to him. Years before he became the infamous High functioning sociopathic detective “Sherlock Holmes”, he was a High functioning sociopath at Cambridge University well mainly forced to go and at least get some form of education. During one of his drug runs he got into it with a woman and mistakenly had me, (Y/n) Holmes.

My then so called mother dumped me on my dad because she would rather use her money to buy her coke instead of baby formula. So for the next five years my dad had left school to raise me….well I really wouldn’t even say that either.

Now don’t get me wrong he never touched me badly or even beat me but sometimes I wish he would at least notice me once in a while but he was always invested in his work. Sometimes I feel like he doesn’t even know that I exist. When I try to get his attention he always either doing some sciency-stuff or trying to score some drugs with some of his friends.

But I guess he must have some kindness in him because whenever he’s about to go on the stuff, he drops me off at grandma’s and grandpa’s house while he does his things. Though still I wish he wasn’t like that and would spend some time with me.

Tsukishima Kei | Middle Blocker | Happy Birthday to my ♥ sweet Sarah!! ♥  σ(≧ε≦o)

I’ve decided to practice the law of attraction 👀 for like the next 3 months and see how it goes. I made myself more aware recently of my thought process and the tone w which I see the world and I’ve noticed that like. I’m v negative. For like good reason but. I’m negative and arrogant and disinterested and ashamed of like 99% of what I want out of life. I think my inner world influences my outer world. Some things r beyond my control but. There is a lot that I can make happen n also a lot that I can stop from happening. Through thought 👀 I truly believe this. This includes beautiful things 🍭💟 I can stop beautiful gorgeous things from entering my life by believing I’m underserving or by believing it’s impossible or too hard or too difficult etc. I need to say yes to visualizing my dreams w extreme clarity n therefore inviting my dreams into reality. Do u know what I mean. This starts today brb in 3 months w updates. 

It is difficult to explain exactly what Irish Dance means to me, because it is so personal and interlaced within me, making up part of who I am.  It is permanently engrained in my life as a part of me no one can relinquish or take away.

idk if this is a weird q to ask but like do u have any tips on how to love ur life more because u seem like u are always having fun and love your life and that is literally #goals !!

hmm, this isn’t a weird q but I think it’s kind of a difficult thing to put into words. I… am not always having fun, is the first thing I should probably say. I know it seems like it because I only really talk about the fun things that happen in my life, which then makes it seem as though my life is very saturated with fun outings or fun events when it isn’t!!! I’m in college and it’s really tough and I’m like… constantly tired and things are sometimes really difficult!! 

But, also, even though I’m not always permanently having fun I do still really love my life. And I think it’s 100% down to just, having a really good balance between time spent doing work, time spent doing stuff alone, and time spent with people you really fucking like!!! It’s so important to me to have friends that I love and trust! and they’re the people who make my life fun! that’s my number one tip, have friends that you love spending time with and that you can talk to about the things that aren’t really going well in your life, so that even during those times you know you have people that you can rely on for support. 

Also just… do stuff you love to do. I love my life because a lot of the time I’m very bad at doing things I should be doing, and instead take time to do things that maybe… aren’t ’’’’’’’’’’productive’’’’’’’’’ but that are going to make me happy. is that bad advice??? you can always retake an exam but u can’t go see Beyonce @ glastonbury more than once, probably, is what I’m saying 

love u good luck parsing these sentences lol xxxx

o have an aries saturn and when i looked it up it always says its a bad placement so why do u believe its good?

There’s no such thing as a bad placement. There are difficult placements but none are just plain bad or good, I said I liked the placement because despite the issues I experience with it, it always makes me stronger and more capable of being responsible for my life. Astrology isn’t black or white.

i really think that has a family we need to talk about michaels sense of humor more bc well

its one of a kind

things non-poor ppl need to know

so, full disclaimer: i am a white poor person (in several different “”oppression”” demographics but they’re not all directly relevant tbh) living in Texas so i’m sure a lot of these issues are different for PoC poor people/poor peeps from other places. tagging @shezep @tiffanarchy @geekandmisandry @socialjusticesummoner @satsekhem @imperial-western-empire @enderman @qupanuaq @art-and-anarchism @class-struggle-anarchism @class-struggle-pepe @fuckyeahanarchy @fishingboatproceeds (because why tf not. also quit being transphobic even casually u dumbass) @staff (get rid of the fuckin Neo-Nazi and pedophile blogs) @dailyanarchist 

because i think yall might find my bitching interesting. if not, feel free to ignore :P if you DO like it, pls tag ppl who you think need to read this!!! i want this shit to go viral lmao

before i even start, YES, i am aware that “not all rich peopl!!!” wah wah wah. honestly. i hang out with kids in country clubs. some of my favorite people on this planet (@the-word-builder and @damnit-scully tbh) live on THREE DIFFERENT CONTINENTS and think nothing of sending me gifts out of nowhere that i’m slightly embarrassed about accepting. i’m *aware* that having money =/= being a bad person. i’m not making this post to talk shit. i’m making it to educate. 

however, i WILL be getting snippy. it’s more important to me that i get my point across than it is that i don’t hurt ur feelings. if you want a civil discussion, be civil in ur reblog. i’ll be as nice as u are. deal? deal. 

got it? alright. listen up:

  • Poor ppl work harder than u just to survive. “Hard work” has never and will never solve poverty. 
  • now read that again. read it again and again until you believe me. look, hard work CAN help you get out of poverty, but it isn’t a guarantee. some people are poor because they are lazy, sure, but that is almost fucking never the ONLY Reason. believe me, i know a LOT of poor people, and every single one of them works their ass off in some way or another. don’t tell poor people to “get a job” you naive condescending fuck
  • We also have to have fuck tons of ingenuity just to get shit that u take for granted. We make coffee by putting our old-ass coffee grounds holder in a pot of boiling water until the water becomes coffee. I have spent hours collecting my high school’s spare scratch paper and binders so i could print out pdfs of feminist/anarchist/queer theory reading material, because there is no way in hell i will be able to convince any Bible Belt libraries to order that shit for me. A lack of “intelligence and talent” is not why we are poor. 
  • do NOT condescend to us. Poor =/= uneducated or stupid. Both of my parents went to college (Dad got an associates, mom got a Bachelor’s), but my Dad still spent his whole life in the military or in labor jobs, and my mom has still been in fast food or unemployment for nearly a decade. You don’t know what we know or what we’ve learned. Be quiet. 
  • speaking of which, y’all should know that the military preys on us because we are desperate for options and respect. i shit you not, we have multiple military guys (it’s always guys and they always focus on PoC males. i fucking promise u they are RARELY talking to a white kid MUCH LESS white girls. #privilege is real other white ppl stfu) come and try to convince us that the fucking military is a good plan for our future. and yeah, i spent a year at a richer high high school. the army guys came once. at my poorer school i’m currently at, they come several times a year. my library and office has pamphlets trying to convince CHILDREN to join up, all year. take into account the whole “ppl in the military r HEROES killin the MUSLIM TERRORISTS!!!!11!!!one!!!!” bullshit the Republicans shove down everyone’s throat day in and day out? I am almost definitely going to lose one of the kids i grew up with to the fucking war machine. the same war machine that, my dad has informed me, literally breaks human beings down to the point that they consider the person on the other end of the scope to be a “target” instead of a human being. do not fucking test me about this. the military preys on poor ppl and anyone with 1 ounce of common sense could tell u as much.
  • poor ppl have to break the law on a daily to survive (Not an exaggeration. Not hyperbole. Not anything but the literal truth) even if we aren’t drug dealers or thieves or any of the other stereotypical “criminals”. This is because there are a Fuckton of laws and most of them are stupid and unnecessary and discriminate against us because we don’t have the resources to drive all around town paying for insurance and licenses and other bureaucratic bullshit.
  • speaking of, the Law is a daily pain in all of our asses, and snitching on someone is the equivalent of announcing “I would rather ruin your life than deal with you myself”. In other words, going to the police for any reason other than your LIFE being in danger is a bad move (even if you ignore the fact that the police will probably fuck up your life, too, if you go to them for help), and even then you’re gonna get a rep for being a piece of shit coward. 
  • We survive off of the generosity of others -yes, charities (and taxpayers if we’re pretending that shit is ‘generosity’ and not something y'all do begrudgingly), but tbh mostly other poor ppl who will let us use their running water when ours is off, knowing that we will share our food with them next time they run out of food stamps early- and we know that, and it is a constant source of insecurity. You don’t need to fucking rub it in.
  • and ^^ that mutual cooperation experience makes me preeeeetty damn skeptical @ the capitalist rhetoric of “we are all selfish assholes who will never help each other just because” like?? i’m alive and living with my actual *family* right now because of human beings’ spontaneous willingness to just fuckin help each other and be decent to near-strangers so……on ur left capitalists
  • Bugs, rats, vermin, parasites, and all manner of bullshit pests are a fact of life for us. We’ve accepted this, and don’t need to see your prissy disgusted faces when we talk about it.
  • It isn’t unusual for us to have blisters all over our feet (I have 6 at the moment not counting recent callouses) because we walk p much everywhere we go. (of course, if a poor person IS lucky enough to have a car they can drive????? they are STILL. POOR. LEAVE THEM ALONE)
  • Most of us have mental illnesses and/or addictions of some sort. That is usually because we grew up in dysfunctional homes were that shit was normal. That doesn’t mean that we aren’t responsible for our own bad decisions, but consider how much easier it would have been for us to stay on the straight and narrow if we had been born there. You know, the way YOU were.
  • Most of us don’t know very many people who AREN’T poor because this shit is generational and a cycle. Consequently we rarely have very much awareness of “the world outside” poverty other than thinking that y'all are stuck up and boring.
  • If we seem “rude” or “loud” to your sheltered asses, it’s because the culture of poverty generally stresses being entertaining and resilient rather than being polite, as middle and upper class cultures do. Google it.
  • it is COMPLETELY FUCKING LOGICAL for us to have electronic shit -sometimes even cable and internet!!- AND be hungry AT THE SAME TIME. here’s how: food is a constant, as in daily, expense. Electronics are a rare expense (and the services to make them more usable are also, to a lesser extent). Besides fear, hunger, depression, stress, and the capitalist social stigma against poverty, the worst thing about being poor is that you are ALWAYS. BORED. Of course we would rather spend a few days hungry and still have *something* to do than sell our phones and laptops secondhand, spend all the money on necessities in like 1 week, and then be in the exact same goddamn economic position…except now, no phone and no laptop. once again: we are not fucking stupid. 
  • Every single middle class person I have ever fucking met (no matter how nice and non-snobby they are) has been a thousand times more “entitled” than anyone on “government handouts” and if u aren’t poor and disagree with me because Bill O Reilly said otherwise pls fuck off
  • let me make something perfectly clear. poor people do not need or want your “attention” or “approval” or “sympathy”. we don’t give a shit if you think we “deserve” basic necessities. we don’t care if you think we are “entitled”. we feel sorrier for ourselves than u ever could, your opinions of us cannot help or hurt us. you know what can? your actions. to you it may be some kind of like? political or philosophical move to not support food stamps / welfare / any other “entitlement programs” (as i’ve heard them called before) but you know what it is to me and mine?? SURVIVAL. pride does not factor into it. at the end of the day we are biological lifeforms with instincts that will drive us to get our needs met no matter what we have to do. if you refuse to give us your fucking table scraps, we will start stealing. and selling meth. and joining gangs. this isn’t a threat, this is a FACT that i KNOW because that’s what my life is like. alright? if i can’t get charity to feed myself and my little brothers, i pull some Aladdin shit. and no, i don’t feel guilty about it.
  • if you make life more difficult for minimum wage workers to prove a point you’re a bad person. point blank. they HAVE to put up with u. u don’t even wanna hear the horror stories my parents have told me about working in retail/fast food, but no matter how much abuse u give someone in the service industry, their job requires them to take it and kiss your ass because their bosses don’t give two fucks about them, only the profit margin. no matter how “incompetent” you feel like the person SERVING YOU is, be fucking polite, or you’re a bully. end of 
  • finally: if i wanna talk about hating capitalism, i will. i have gone out of my way to educate myself on this, even if i haven’t gotten a “”college degree”” on it (yet). i have LIVED what Marx was talking about, despite being in one of THE RICHEST NATIONS ON THE PLANET. i have invited strangers into my home because i knew they could die if they slept outside in the cold, i have stolen for food, i have begged for food, i have carried tubs of wet laundry across town to get them dried at someone else’s house, i have paid my fucking dues. i will bitch about capitalism on the internet and i don’t care if you have a problem with me being 17 and criticizing the system, i don’t care if you are *yet another* douche who thinks that “it only works on paper” is some kind of original comment. s t f u

anonymous asked:

mom!! i really like this girl but she lives kinda far and i want to date her but i've never done long distance :( how do u and avery do it without losing trust or getting sad

well anon, we don’t do it without getting sad. we get sad a lot. long distance relationships are difficult and aren’t for everyone, but they do have their benefits. in some ways, long distance may make your relationship even stronger in the long run. if you truly feel like this girl is the one and you two would be able to handle a long distance relationship for as long as it may take, then i’d say go for it. i trust avery with my life and i love her more than i’ve loved anyone before, regardless of the 1,687 miles of Pain and Suffering™ between us. i have my heart set on a long lasting relationship with her and i’m willing to make as many sacrifices as it may take to make that happen.
