Ah shit I wasn’t expecting to get emotional today.
…I have very low confidence in myself, as a writer and as an artist. I am also extremely shy in real life (probably couldn’t tell on here, right?)
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve drawn or written something and wanted to share it, only to back out at the last minute. And when I do share it, I’m scared to even look at it again because I think “No one will like it”.
I have some kind of anxiety that just tells me every day that my stuff just…isn’t good enough. That I’m just wasting my time trying. I think that’s why for the longest time, I just stopped. No drawing, no writing.
Villainous helped get me out of a rut that I’d been in for so long. I was having fun creating characters again, giving them backstories and designing them. Doing stupid little comics just to make people laugh. I never expected anyone to like my stuff. I didn’t expect anyone to draw my characters.
Hell, I never expected Carved Rainbows to actually become a thing.
This is going to sound really sappy but I am super grateful for the last few weeks. I’ve been inspired by so much, art and fanfiction a like. I look forward to checking tumblr every morning, just to see what the new day has brought. And the reactions. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t read the tags when someone reblogs the fics.
Thanks for being awesome friends, for encouraging me, and caring about me as a person. Maybe life isn’t always great, but I am glad to go through it, with God, and with friends like you.
I was… actually almost planning on giving up art for good, but, thanks to you two, reminding me, that God has great plans for even my simple doodles, and making me feel like my art was… worth something ^w^. I am inspired to make great things again.
Show them some love please, we need more people that care for you, not just when it’s convenient for them, but people who really care.
I’m not sure if I’m ready to let go of this show yet. Skam means a lot to me. It’s not just another tv show, which makes it so much harder to say goodbye. This is the last Skam fredag ever, which really sucks. As a mentally ill person this show showed me there is hope in finding someone who understands and will be there for you. It brought up so many issues about independence and friendship and that screwing up is apart of life as well as shedding light on LGBT+ and religious issues. I will miss Eva, Vilde, Even and Isak, Noora, Sana, Magnus, Chris, Eskild, Jonas, and all the other amazing characters. It makes me sad that there are so many story lines left untold but I’m so glad we got Skam at all.
And I also just want to say a thank you to all the wonderful translators out there who let it be possible for us non Norwegian speakers to enjoy this show as well. You are all awesome for all the time and work you put into it and you did a great job.
laskjdfoiajsdf don’t mind me, I just posted a stupid sad face to the wrong dang blog because I was an incredibly overwhelmed and sad sack last night! Everything’s okay though, oh my gosh, I’m sorry you guys. Don’t worry about me! I am okay! I didn’t get squished or anything!
I don’t want to get sentimental but skam is ending and the last 10 weeks of my life have been quite exciting you know waiting for updates, crying, laughing and getting angry about these updates too has been a highlight of my experience.
To all my lovely followers, thank you for putting up with my crap for these past few weeks and reblogging my posts (most of which were of me ranting.)
Also thank you to the people who dropped by in my ask or messages to talk about skam, especially people who thought I was worthy enough to rant to, I really appreciated it.
If I sat here and tagged each and every one of you let’s be real I’d be here all day because I talked to so many amazing people about skam and you know who you are. Lots of love, let’s hope saturdays clip does this whole season justice. 💛💛💛💛
david freaking archuleta busting out some moves on stage last night WHAT IS LIFE.
youguys. the story behind this is so cute! there was a 12-year-old fan right in front of the stage holding up a sign that said she’s been a fan since she was 3 and asked if david would dance for her tonight. SO HE DID IT. and watch at the end, he looks over and points right at her and walks toward her and smiles and it is not possible to actually love him more i promise because i love him more than i can handle already LOOK AT THIS BOY AND HIS SMILE AND POINT AND WALK AND KILLIN EM. bless everything.
Jennette McCurdy was at David’s show in West Hollywood tonight and posted quite a few IG stories singing along and screaming (I think she’s my spirit animal) but the captions she put on these two videos. So. Lovely.
