A few posts about the Manchester bombing have come up in my feed, I looked into it a bit more and I found that people are complaining about/hating on Ariana for suspending (or potentially cancelling) her tour. I’m just gonna say it, I’m not a fan of Ariana Grande, I never have been, but how dare people hating on her for suspending her tour. I can’t even IMAGINE what she must be going through right now, after everything that happened, I wouldn’t even blame her if the poor girl never went on tour again. People seriously need to get their priorities straight….
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and family affected by this, and to Ariana as well.
Oh my fucking god looking for more old writing I found a journal I wrote on April 23rd, 2001, about all the shit that went down in one of the most tumultuous months of my life. (In early April, 2001, I realized I had a crush on someone for only the second time in my life, and the only problem was, the guy in question was dating the girl on whom I’d had my first crush a few months before. I decided to say something. Hijinks ensued. And by hijinks I mean my entire social life fell apart, I lost my virginity, I stole my best friend’s boyfriend, and did a lot of growing up in a really short amount of time. Mind you this was within a month of coming out to my parents, because of the whole “crush on a girl” thing.)
I wonder if I’ll actually keep a journal? probably not,
knowing me, in the same way that it’s more likely that I’m just doing this to
procrastinate. Still, it would be sort of nice to have a place to just write
things down, wouldn’t it? Maybe if I unload to myself I won’t unload to any one
else. Why was I doing that today? complaining to EVERYONE, and then as if it
wasn’t enough I bitched to Jay. I must have known it would make him feel bad so
why did I do it? maybe I’m just a manipulative bitch under it all - “Hey look
at me Jay, pity me, pity me, I need to use the bathroom every two minutes for
no reason, oh pity me, pity me.” If that’s what I’m actually doing, I’m a lot
cheaper than I thought I was.
Or maybe I’m not. Maybe I’m about as cheap as I thought I
was. After all, I decided years ago that I was manipulative and self centered.
If recent events just happen to be proving me right, isn’t it wonderful that I
was able to figure that out?
No. The point was not only to KNOW that I’m a manipulative
bitch, but to be able to DO something about that fact. And that of course if
where I failed utterly. No huge surprise, I rather expect that until I admited
to someone that I thought of my self that way I’d never be able to do anything
about it. Still, it would be nice to believe that I could have solved problems
like that without having to hurt any one again. Oh well.
Oh my goooooooooood 18 year old me! SO ANGST! ALL THE SELF HATE! LMAAAOOOOOO. (the bathroom thing was that, it turns out, when I get REALLY stressed I get the phantom urge to pee…that still happens…it’s tremendously annoying…)
Can I ask why you ship kamisero? This is not to be mean, I just can't remember a lot of their interactions in the manga or anime and would love to be reminded of why they work well as a couple
!!!!! Ooookay this is kind of a weird question for me and I don’t really know how to properly answer because… uhm… they’re kind of always together?? Actually??? I mean they haven’t really been the protagonists in any arc so it’s mostly background stuff but when they appear they’re more often than not together - here, have some panels I’ve found skimming real fast through the parts I remembered them being there
(+Mina!!! squad moment heck yes!!)
(+Kiri!!! more squad moments!!!!!!!)
(real talk more often than not if Kami and Mineta are in the same place Sero is right there with them, I try to pretend that’s not true but alas)
(+Baku!!! Even more squad moments!!!! This one’s from an extra, I can’t find the translated version anymore - rip - but they’re trying to get Baku to play the thumb game I’m gonna cry this squad will kill me)
also on the cover of Vol 4 👌👌👌
The thing about me shipping them is that as I said I do prefer them as friends, which they are and it’s adorable, but I’m always up for entertaining the idea of good friends in romantic relationships so I’m 👍👍👍 about KamiSero too haha
warned y’all that this speculation might piss people off, so I’ll
just go ahead and throw it up there in the title so that way you can skip it if
you so choose.
We know we’re in for a hell of a cliffhanger this year. (”You guys are going to hate me.” - Mark Pellegrino. Or something like that.) I mean, we always are, because that’s what the show does… but how about more of one than usual?
Cas be next season’s Big Bad, as a Prince of Hell?
yeah – I know. Many of you are just gonna smile politely, nod, and whisper
to each other about that one lady yelling about glowing eyes again.
(I do yell about eyeballs a lot. Have I mentioned that I like glowing eyes today? Well, if you didn’t know - I dig glowing eyeballs. That said, there’s way more to this than glowing eyeballs.)
hear me out if you have the patience, because I have a bunch of words here explaining why I’m seeing
this (even though I’m gonna say there’s like… a 7.3% chance of
this actually happening, just because I like pulling totally random stats out of my butt). I already know @mittensmorgul does NOT see this happening at
all. But if/when it doesn’t happen, maybe somebody will be inspired
to write an awesome canon-divergent fic over the summer.
Having spent my whole life posing to be “pretty” (from family portraits to Porn shoots), I found myself wanting to look more masculine in my personal photos. But how? I looked through Tumblr and all I really found were a bunch of man-butts – which wasn’t terrible, but also wasn’t what I was looking for. So I did my own research and made this post for anyone else who was wondering!
Just an important note: this is not meant in any way to uphold gender roles. I just want to help people out who want to express themselves more masculinely in visual media or who are self-conscious of photos because they don’t want to look like a girl (i.e. me, and probably most pre T boys). Regardless of your sex, gender, race, orientation, origin, or class, you should be allowed to be yourself! I just wanted to point out some rules of conventional photography and posing that allow a person to present in a more “masculine” way :)
So, some things to remember when taking photos that will accentuate your masculinity:
Your eyes should follow the line of your nose.
A lot of photography has men squinting. Not sure why, but maybe they’re on to something?
Closed hands (a.k.a. fists or loose fists) are considered more masculine than open hands in photography. If your hands are open, keep your palms pointed down and try to shoot the tops of your hands. The sides of the hands are considered dainty and womanly.
When posing, try not to raise the shoulder you have pointed at the camera or tilt your head toward a raised shoulder. If you do a head tilt, tilt your shoulders in the same direction as your head. It sounds complicated, but there’s a picture of it below!
IT IS OKAY TO SMILE! If you feel like smiling makes you look too feminine or makes you look silly, try a smirk or a lustful look. Or just look serious I guess. IDK, I’m new to this too so :P In porn there’s this look they have us do called “fashion face.” You literally make no expression, you just stare at the camera like you have resting bitch face. If you’re not one for smiles, try it, you might like it! (I personally make an effort not to look angry or depressed in my photos, and I have always sucked at faces so that’s why I rambled here. Don’t hate me lol).
Try to accentuate your jawline – find a facial pose that makes the jawline look strong and present. Always keep your chin tilted up and toward the camera!
Here are some photos of different poses considered masculine in conventional art and photography (there is one that has more anime-style poses for those of you who like to cosplay or just like to be really cool!):
In the end, it’s important to remember that it will take time to grow into your body, and it will take time to learn how to command it, too. If you’re like me and have to wait a few more years before you can start T, but you still want the world to see you as you are, I’m sure this will help. I’ll be trying out some of these poses and uploading them here, and I’d love to see yours. I know my blog is small, and I’m no expert, but I really hope this reaches anyone who needs it.
