literally one of my favorite pictures

anonymous asked:

Hi sweetie! You are so great and an absolute joy of the fandom! What picture is your favorite that you have made?

Hi there!  Thanks so much for your nice comment!

I just had a look through my folder, and it turns out I have well over six hundred images, and over two hundred gifs.  That makes this question really difficult!  I can tell you that there’s a few images I like for different reasons.

This one is a favourite because I have no idea why I thought of this idea, but it was in fact an idea.  I literally searched out for an image of someone skateboarding in a suit, put Lestrade’s face on it, added sunglasses, added a cat and put it over the NSY building.  It was intentionally bizarre, and I was funny to probably only me.  But that’s fine!

I love making logos, so making up this one for the fictitious band belonging to @finalproblem was particularly fun.

I had this one printed out and on my wall for about four years. It still makes me smile. 

And I am adding this one here because it got a ton of hits, mostly for the added stuff after the original image.  This one was pretty fun to make, required a lot of careful close cropping, and I thought it was really funny.

That’s it for now, I hope this works for you! 

oscar wilde
  • had three middle names
  • spoke five languages
  • was sentenced to prison for sodomy
  • was 16 when he had his first kiss
  • loved to travel
  • had an eidetic memory
  • lied about his age on his marriage certificate
  • held seances at his house
  • spoke with his hand in front of his mouth bc he was embarrassed by how supernaturally white his teeth were
  • kept a vase of flowers on his writing desk to neutralize the smell of his ashtray
  • had a passion for interior design and aesthetics—his drawing room was painted blue and covered in dragons, he even pressed feathers into the plaster to make it look cool
  • the kids at his school called him “grey crow”
  • one of the reasons he didn’t commit suicide was bc he was afraid he would go to hell for it
  • his favorite word was ivory
  • his last words were “i am in a duel to the death with this wallpaper, one of us has got to go”
  • his grave, in paris, has become the target of mass quantities of lipstick kisses. no lie. it’s literally covered in lipstick stains. and a sphinx. he also asked to be buried with his former lover’s ashes

Okay so I was just “casually” watching the ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ music video (again) and this part is literally one of my favorites. We can all agree this was about the apple music letter thing that resulted in everyone calling her ‘money hungry’ and more stupid shit.

The thing is, to me, in this scene the cats represent the small artists who Taylor is trying to help by ‘crashing’ this streaming company. 

In this part, you can see how she is freaking burning the money like why robbing a bank to just watch the money burn, right??While behind the cats are collecting it. I don’t know about you but this picture is screaming “Money hungry, who bitch?”

and then finally when they are leaving we can see how Taylor, unlike the girls, is not carrying a single bag full of money. She was just helping them to get it, she didn’t take absolutely anything.

I saw this picture of one of my favorite humans, Hank Green, floating around and felt like I had to add these basic examples.

Yes, there are extremely harmful chemicals/molecules out there, but you can’t be afraid of all chemicals because literally everything is made of chemicals - from the air to your full body. Your body functions because it makes chemicals and reacts with other chemicals. Your senses are results of chemical reactions. Your emotions are chemicals, your food and nutrition are chemicals, your whole life is chemicals. Whether it’s a solid, liquid, or a gas. Chemicals.

There’s a big reason why you have to take a lot of chemistry when you study biology…

Life IS chemistry.

Lopez said his favorite album is Baby One More Time but that he isn’t listening to Email My Heart.

“I don’t know anybody who is listening to Email My Heart,” Lopez said.

Lopez said he hasn’t seen Spears in concert but he has seen Mariah Carey, whom he called “my No. 1 diva.”

How long will Lopez keep up the picture of Spears?

“We’ll always have Britney looking down on us,” he said.

honestly I think my favorite thing about Jasper is that she’s such a fucking drama hoe

So far she has:

-gotten a cape specially made for the sole purpose of wanting to look dramatic and fabulous in front of her enemies.

- put on eyeliner for a fight.

-literally paused what she was doing just so “Rose” could take a menacing picture of her, before disappearing into the unknown.

- made an exit walking backwards into the ocean, and paused to say a one liner before sinking down completely when it was so totally unnecessary of her to do so.

If/ when Jasper gets redeemed all I’m saying is peridot is gonna have good run for her money in terms of the biggest dork in the group

Favorite Summer Albums of 2017

summer is almost over ;-; but these 10 albums made this summer v special for me and i highly recommend all of them :)

10. Aminé - Good For You

I’m not a big fan of Aminé but this album proved that he’s not a one hit wonder and has a LOT of potential. the album is very colorful, at times it sounds like the band fun. made a rap album tbh. also i personally care a lot about album covers and they actually affect the way i judge & listen to music, and this cover art is absolutely one of my favorite album covers of the year as it perfectly visualizes how the music sounds.

9. Haim -  Something to Tell You

ok maybe this album is not as strong as their first album but it’s the most “dream-girl-californian” type album that I’ve heard in a very long time, it’s like a soundtrack for all these tumblr blogs dedicated to highly stylized pictures of California and California girls and it’s amazing.

8. Calvin Harris - Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1

honestly, i never expected to like this album as much as i do but it’s like literally the definitive American summer album. and like it’s like one of those albums that no matter how much they tried to fuck it up, they couldn’t make it any less good than it is with the list of artists that are featured on it. i mean Frank Ocean on the first fucking track?? and then the rest of the album being equally good? double amazing! “Faking It” is one of my fav song of the year despite the fact that i almost threw my headphone the moment i head Lil Yachty screech at the very end of it to compliment Kehlani, smh.

7. Brockhampton - Saturation

Kevin Abstract is amazing. American Boyfriend is an amazing album and Saturation is like Brockhampton’s take on that album and beyond. extremely fresh sounding, the rapping of every member is unique and exciting, the band knows their audience and so their lyrics resonate extremely well in a genuine way which makes the album very relatable for people in their late teenage years/early 20s.

6. Mura Masa - MURA MASA

the cover art is great but clearly a rip off of The Life of Pablo. but that doesn’t change the fact that Mura Masa is consistently amazing. despite releasing half of the album before the official release, the non singles - particularly “Who Is It Gonna B” , “Nothing Else!” and “Messy Love” - are phenomenal and it has such a London sound, and he even described the album as a love letter to London. every time I hear it, it makes me wanna move to London <3

5. Queens of the Stone Age - Villains

okay i can’t really judge this yet because i only listened to the shit quality leak, but MAN, even with that shit quality, this album fucking RIPS. less accessible and more experimental than “…Like Clockwork” and heavier too. lyrically and conceptually, though, it sounds like it comes from the same headspace that resulted in “…Like Clockwork” but this album to me is like a very epic epilogue to the previous album. “Villains of Circumstance” is a masterpiece and a strong contender for the best closing track of any album this year.

4. Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory

i’ve talked about this album before but the more rap albums i heard these past few months, the more amazing this album became for me. i mean just go listen to Mike Will Made-It’s new album (or any other generic trap album from 2017) and Big Fish Theory back to back, and the difference in production and atmosphere says it all.

3. Tyler, the Creator - Flower Boy

i’ve also talked about this album before but this album this summer is what Blonde was last summer for me. it’s Tyler’s most defining work, and it only makes me excited to see how he will follow it up.

2. Lorde - Melodrama

this masterpiece soundtracked a lot of my sad & happy summer afternoons and nights. every time I listen to it, it reminds me what’s like to be 20 years old, and “Supercut” is the ultimate Lorde song ever tbh; amazing dance beat + intensely emotional lyrics. and that applies for most of Melodrama, every single emotion and feeling that Lorde expresses is actually felt.

1. Arcade Fire - Everything Now

believe it or not, in 2017, it’s unusual to like Arcade Fire. I’m still trying to figure out if the disappointment that this album brought to fans and critics is as a result of power of our absurdly high expectations, or the marketing campaign that pissed a lot of fans and critics off. either way, what matters for me is that I loved both the album promotion and the album itself. this is the best summer album (and potentially my favorite album) of 2017 for various reasons. for me a great album is an album that creates a world that makes me feel like I’m living in it for the duration that it has, and if it’s great enough, it makes me wanna live in that world forever (no matter how good or bad that world is). Arcade Fire are masters of teasing and promotion, and through a genius marketing strategy, they created a world for this album before it came out and after listening to the album few times after my initial disappointment with the singles, everything about it just made sense. the great irony about it is that despite its ridiculously complex and seemingly confusing promotion, the album itself is extremely direct and heartfelt. yes, the songs are extremely well produced and multi-layered, but what makes it amazing is just how personal it is. even in a song as colorful as “Everything Now”, there are some really dark lyrics. “Peter Pan” is about reaching an age when you start losing your parents (Win wrote it after realizing his dad is sick). “Put Your Money on Me” is a song where Win directly references his religious family and the dissatisfaction of his mother at his wedding, since Regine is apparently not of their faith. “Creature Comfort” and “Good God Damn” are both about a suicidal person (Win’s close friend) and why life is always better, even at its worst. and finally, “We Don’t Deserve Love”, an amazing heartbreaker about the simple concept that no matter how much we rely on people of higher status, whether our parents or religious figures, for love and connection, love and connection are inside us right from the start without us even realizing it sometimes. i think this album is the one that makes the most sense to me along with Father John Misty’s “Pure Comedy” - as both albums talk about the absurdity of our modern lives, yet in the end, both albums conclude with the statement that love is what matters the most at any stage of our life.

recently my own mental health has been kicking my ass pretty bad, and I thought I would make a post about the different techniques I use to try and get myself back up off the ground.

1) just start.
the hardest part about studying when your mental health is acting up is just finding the energy to start. get yourself into a place that you feel comfy and safe, whether it’s a library or a special corner or your room and just try to bite the bullet. I know this is easier said than done, but I promise this is probably the biggest hurdle you need to leap. just do what you need to do.

2) find your own safe space for studying
for me, it’s very hard to study in my room/when i’m home because i’m tempted to take naps or paint or play music or do something else. if I know I have lots of work to do, i usually go straight to my local coffee shop right after school so i’m not tempted to slow down when i get home. that way, i’m in a place that doesn’t allow me to get majorly distracted AND i can get myself some food or coffee to keep me motivated. if you need absolute silence or can’t study with lots of movement around, a library is your best option; however, wherever you feel best is a good bet.

3) build yourself (or find) a playlist
certain music can really help me get out of a bad mindset and into one that allows me to study easily. If you have certain songs you listen to to make yourself feel better, throw those in with some relaxing piano. My personal favorite is listening to the OST’s of my childhood video games and Studio Ghibli soundtracks. Spotify also has a few playlists for studying in whatever genre you’re looking for.

4) stay hydrated
i’m sorry i know this is on literally every masterpost for mental health but it’s for a good reason. I’m not expecting you to slam 70 oz of water every day and be a picture perfect studyblr with a water tracker app on their phone. if you notice yourself feeling shitty or sluggish, even a sip of something (even if it’s not water if it isn’t available) will help in the long run. 

5) eat something. anything
the same goes for food: i’m going to be real with you and tell you that a very small percentage of people actually eat avocado toast or fruity granola shit in the morning. I don’t even eat breakfast myself, but i structure my day so that i’m constantly snacking throughout the day. even if all you can manage is some crackers, it’s a good start. 

6) set up structured breaks
i use the app Tide (it’s a pomodoro timer) and i set up studying as 25 minutes of work with a 5 minute break in between. it’s completely free (score) and you can customize both the work length times and break times. it also offers different white noise options like “ocean” and “forest” if a music playlist isn’t for you. if all you can put in is 50 minutes of work with 20 minute breaks in between, at least it’s something you didn’t have done before.

7) prioritize
if you’re running low on energy, find the one or two things you NEED to have done. tomorrow is a new day, and it’s possible you may be felling better. for me, I have both BPD and depression, so my mood and energy swing back and forth day by day. if I feel terrible one night, sometimes the next night I feel like I can fight the world. obviously i’m not sure what situation you’re in, but don’t push yourself to finish things that aren’t immediately due if you really don’t feel good. 

i hope some of these help! if you know of anything that helps you study with your mental illness, shoot me a message and I can add it here!

It’s (more or less) that time again! Hot chocolate, cold weather, winter holidays! It’s Holiday Card Party Time!

I’m starting this much earlier than I did last year, because I know pretty much everyone I sent cards to internationally last year didn’t get them until well into January. But I learn from my mistakes!

As you may or may not know, my favorite thing in life is sending Christmas cards. Literally. Favorite. Thing. The issue? I have way more cards in my possession than I have people to send them to! Please help me out, I want to send holiday cards to as many of you as you will let me!

Want a holiday card? Please say yes!

  • I’ll mail you a holiday card, and to as many people as possible I’ll include a little One Direction-related art card (see the mess in the last picture for what I did last year)
  • You don’t have to be a mutual, or even following me!
  • I’ll send internationally!
  • All I need is your address, and a name (it doesn’t have to be your real name, I’ll send it to a nickname or your username, whatever!) Send it on ask, anon or otherwise, or message me! (I won’t share any addresses ofc)
  • Important though - I’ve had a few cards returned in the past because I wrote the address wrong, so pretty please write exactly how I should address the card, including line breaks! (if you’re writing in an ask they won’t let you just hit enter, so please signify it some other way by writing (new line) or something similar)
  • I tend to assume the cards I’m sending out are Christmas cards and that I’m sending them to larries, so if you want a holiday card as opposed to Christmas, please let me know! And if you’re a 1D fan without being a larrie, also let me know! I just need to know so that I know what stamps to decorate it with and what message to write! I swear I don’t judge. Or bite.
  • I will send these out to everybody that sends me an address before December 20th! The plan is to start sending them out in the beginning of December this year, rather than the end.
  • Even if you don’t want a holiday card, please reblog this if you like the idea! I’d like to send cards to absolutely everybody who wants one!

So you know how in the comics Cisco can’t be properly photographed because of his powers? I can’t stop thinking about how that would play out on the show. Like one day years from now Cisco and Cindy are married and living together and their place is just filled with out of focus pictures of the two of them. And they have Barry and Iris over and Cisco picks up a frame to show off and he’s like “oh man this is probably my favorite picture of us” and Barry is like “um…its literally the same blurry mess as every other photo” and Cynthia comes in like “nah. this ones from our trip to hawaii” and she and Cisco are both smiling down at it like “good times good times” and Barry looks over at Iris all confused and she just shrugs back at him
