Today, Home turns two years old ♥

(And I thought I’d wrap it up in three months… Whoops)! Thank you for your constant support, patience, and kudos (all 12,700 of them?)!! This project has really gotten me through some tough anxiety (and lupus, apparently) whilst introducing me to the wonderful, talented, empathetic, and creative sterek fandom. I’m honored to be friends with so many of you *hugs*

The final chapter is still in progress, as is book!Home! I’m eager to share both with you soon. ♥

❄️ The Hero and the Fairy ❄️ ~ step-by-step process of >this< piece (^   v ^) <3 click through for minor captions!

as you click through these i’m sure you’ll notice that there’s some pretty big jumps in process~ (^   v ^);;; but i had to reduce it to eight frames, since that’s the tumblr limit. ALSO! wow! that initial sketch! HAHAHA!!! it sure came a long way for there! LOL! LOL! LOL! for those who didn’t see my comments on the initial post, i originally started this piece back in December! X3 so my work has changed a lot since then! five months is a pretty big time jump when you’re constantly drawing! lol lol lol~!!!!

i both loved and loathed the process of drawing all the crystals for this! <3 i really learned a lot through the trial and error of making them! (-^ ___^-) i didn’t push them very far in terms of the coloring i ended up using on them, but i hope to apply what i learned (and take it further) in an up coming BnHA piece! in the end, i am so happy that people seem to be enjoying this one, because i really felt too strongly about the design to let it waste away in my “to-do” file!

LOST LANCE FICS / (UPDATED MEMES)

Okay so I’ve given it a lot of thought and realized that I most likely won’t write a lost lance fic myself BUT I have decided to let people write for Lost Lance AU

BUT Please: 

  • ASK ME FIRST (I’ll say yes I just wanna know) 
  • credit me

  • explain that it is only BASED ON the Lost Lance au and is not like ‘offical tm.’ lmao

  • and send me a link because I WANNA READ/SHARE IT !!!!
This au is very special to me. But I’ve been feeling a lot of unnecessary pressure and If i don’t write for this au i’d love it if someone wanted too not only for me but for everyone who craves a lost lance fic
ALSO I want to actually work on this other story that i’ve been neglecting for like two months which is called “Heaven is a place on earth” over on my ao3 which you should read if you’re about that angsty au life lmfao (sorry that’s cringey but I gotta get that plug lol)

My plans for the next few weeks (on this blog) is to work on commissions then finish the human healing pod animatic & finally focus on the lost lance au (and a bit on the fallen angel au^^ which is what i’m calling that ^^^

I appreciate all of you this is really extra and Love ya as always, keep it spicy

A few weeks ago I started working on this sweater. It should have been a weekend project, but you know how I’m never able to get the right amount of yarn lol

So yesterday I finished this alpaca sweater and I’m hella proud of it.
I used the pattern “Oversized knitted Sweater” by ALEKSANDRA

college/uni tips

edit: this is based on my experience as a science student, where we have big classrooms. If this doesn’t apply to your school or faculty, keep in mind some points may not apply.

since I’m actually finishing up my first year of uni, I thought I’d make a list of things I came to know.. most of which I had not expected before I entered.

  • 8 or 9 am classes suck, but you get used to it. 
    • You will have days where you feel too sleepy, or where you skip (those days), but if you stick with it for the first 2 or 3 weeks, it becomes a habit. Now that my classes ended, I still wake up at 7 am without an alarm, lol.
  • Taking classes that are only once a week can actually be nice because you get more time to catch up.
    • Most people assume it will be a waste of time, but the weeks go by fast, trust me.
  • Go to lectures up until the midterm, then trust yourself to know whether or not you need it.
    • If you feel it didn’t help you at all with your midterm, you’ll know you can skip more or use the time to study independently
  • Go to the last few (1-2) lectures before an exam
    • Profs love to use that time to give you big hints or review for the trick questions on the exam, knowing that most students skip them
  • If you have (an) upcoming exam(s), don’t skip all your lectures just to study
    • I know it seems ideal, but 9 times out of 10 you end up not using all of that time anyway, and you just get more material to catch up on afterwards. Which is a pain, and you will regret not going for that one hour lecture.
  • Study groups are helpful, but don’t depend on them too much
    • I’ve had several instances where people in the group refused to give answers because they studied harder or some shit
    • Sometimes no one actually contributes so it gets awkward
    • Most times it gets turned into a social meeting
  • Talk to profs… but know which ones to talk to
    • I see this advice a lot, but it doesn’t always apply. In many social or art courses (essay courses, etc) it’s better to contact the TA if you have one. TAs answer faster and can give you better tips. 
    • In other courses, like maths, GOING TO OFFICE HOURS IS HELPFUL. The profs and TAs are willing to solve questions with you and give you tips and shortcuts.
  • Join facebook groups for your course. 
    • Lol this is how I passed probably. They posted answers for stuff, and it was monitored by our TAs. So TAs helped us as well as other students
    • Also don’t be afraid to speak to someone near u in class or lab to ask for an answer
  • You can do better than you think
    • Seriously
    • If you see something you don’t get, try. Most times it will click in your head after a while
  • Don’t stress yourself too much
    • Easy to say, hard to do. But it’s true. Especially for first year, you have a much more flexible average. I got a 30% on my physics final, which was worth 46% of my grade, and finished with a 72 in the course.
  • But don’t go too easy
    • You should try. Seriously. It’s hard but at least you tried. When you do bad, you won’t think “oh God, if only I bothered to do blah” instead you’ll be like “whatever man I did what I could”
  • Don’t give yourself too much free time
    • This is personal, but for me, I don’t focus if I have too much time. I need to have like 10 things at a time so I can actually work, lol, even if it stresses me a lot. If this doesn’t work for you––you know better!! c:

Hey look I finished it! I did this (https://frostedpixels.tumblr.com/post/160351821931/wilford-and-the-ipliers-all-know-each-other-and?is_highlighted_post=1) piece a little while ago, and at college we’re putting our final projects up on exhibition, and our tutors told us we should include some unrelated personal work or whatever, so among my final project and a few other things, this will be up on display at my college for a few days! I’ll post more pictures when I’ve put all the work up in the exhibition room!


@markiplier

@markired (I know you like Wilford so I thought I’d tag you if that’s okay <3)

I just finished binge-watching Voltron Legendary Defender and I’m pretty sure the plot of season 3 is going to be Keith and Pidge going rogue as space pirates working to find their families and adoptive dad/brother, Shiro, right?

study-dream  asked:

hi edye! just a small question, i saw a studyblr quote post thing today and it was "i dont stop when i'm tired, i stop when i'm done". i'm just wondering if you would consider this a good way to be or do you disagree and if you have any advice i'd be grateful, thanks x

This is a great question! Okay *takes deep breath* the short answer is by and large, NO, I think it’s actually a really unhealthy mentality and it’s one of the things that’s most distressing to me about students’ mentalities today.

Let’s discuss the argument FOR this being a healthy mentality. If you are a student who struggles with procrastination, and you define “tired” as “lazy/not wanting to deal/wanting to procrastinate” then yes, sometimes it’s important to push past the part of you that’s “tired” and finish the job. And inevitably, we are ALL going to have to pull an all-nighter. For example, once I hit finals week, I was up til 3 am for three nights in a row (0/10 would recommend! I made poor choices), finishing my stats project. In that case, yes, I had to stop when I was done and not when I was tired or else I would have completely screwed myself over even more.

Now let’s discuss my primary argument AGAINST this being a healthy mentality. I went on a rant to my dad about this and I was like, “oh, so don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done, and having a mental breakdown and depressed and sleep deprived and experiencing panic attacks and developing low self esteem and judging yourself by your grades and unhealthy?”

THIS IS WHY so many students hit high school and fall to pieces. Because they feel that they MUST continually push themselves past “tiredness” (aka your body and mind TELLING you that you need a break so you can function) just because they can’t stop until they’re done.

Let me make some points:
1. If you are struggling with a class and this is the only way you can achieve work, you gotta talk to the teacher or a counselor about more efficient study skills or consider switching to another class. You should not be having to push yourself to exhaustion over one course.
2. If anything, we underestimate our body’s communication signals, particularly under stress. So if you realize you’re tired, YOU ARE TIRED. You are mentally burned out, so you aren’t even going to be able to produce your best work, and you are PHYSICALLY burned out too. You’ll get sick more easily, you’ll feel like shit, and it’ll be a total mess.
3. If you need something done, it’s MUCH healthier to LISTEN to your body and take a nap or go to bed early, and wake up early to finish what needs to be finished.
4. PRIORITIZE. My friend wrote down the percentage grade breakdown for each class, and hung it above his desk, so whenever he was running short on time or sleep, he could prioritize and invest the most energy into work that was worth a higher percentage of his grade. Triage, my friends. If you must compromise, then do what’s the most important, and go to sleep.

This mentality creates students who are stressed out, constantly pressuring themselves, always feeling two steps behind, and frankly reaching a point of abusing their own minds and bodies.

90% of the time, STOP when you are tired. Be GOOD to yourself. You wouldn’t stand behind a friend who’s falling asleep or crying over homework, cracking a whip and chanting “don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done!!!!” SO FOR GOD’S SAKE DON’T DO THAT TO YOURSELF.

You are nothing without your mental and physical health. NOTHING. If you jeopardize your health because you’re trying to follow some stupid mentality to be a Good Student and Get Work Done, it’s eventually going to catch up to you.

If you find this quote inspiring and by following this “rule” you end up working harder, producing better work, and feeling BETTER about yourself and your health, great. But if this quote makes you feel like when you’re wavering on hour three of studying, when you’ve gotten 5 hours of sleep and you’re sick, when you don’t have the energy to leave the house, when you think you’re worthless because you got a B, you should STILL KEEP GOING, then that is frankly horrible.

I do not believe that this is good advice. I think everything should be in moderation, and that the study skills that should be advocated are “I don’t stop when I’m DISCOURAGED, I stop when I’m pleased with my work / I’ve finished / I’m successful / I’m proud or confident” where it focuses on emotion and self efficacy. Essentially swapping out health and achievement like that is destructive, inappropriate, and potentially detrimental to the young impressionable students out there trying to develop good study habits.

More from the doodle batch from the last post as well! I ended up doing some little cheebs of Prompto and a cute little Promptis on too! I’m debating about cleaning them up and turning them into stickers and possible charms if people are interested! But I should probably make some for the other boys and finish the Marlboro-Kun ones I’ve planned out too LOL Other than that, back to finding some inspiration! ☆*ヾ(-∀・*)*+☆

I’m still working on the other three images for this AU, I should finish them tomorrow. I doodled this as a cool down drawing, cause sometimes you need to take a break from drawing to draw something else lol Ngl Yamaguchi makes an ADORABLE crow demon. And..that is some really impressive plumage you got there, Moonpie. It’s weird drawing Tsukki without his glasses. I wonder how ‘blind’ he actually is lolol
