month of may post a day

Special Announcement!

So I have a few things to share with you guys!

1. Discord 

I do have a discord server that’s been around for a few months now. The community may be small, but we are incredibly friendly. If you would like to join the server, send me a DM and I can give you an invitation link!

2. Youtube

I started a Youtube channel where I’m going to be doing some drawing recordings. I plan on doing some of the kids so when those are posted, I’ll be sure to link them.

3. Merchandising. 

If anyone follows me on my main blog, you may have noticed a few days ago I asked about what people would like to see for merchandise from me. Surprisingly, people have suggested Next Gen content. So right now, I am working on some Next Gen sticker and keychains! Stickers will become available on Redbubble, and keychains will take longer since I’ll be hand making them. I’ll let you know when all the designs are available!

Anyway, that’s my announcement! Have a good day, everyone!

Nicki Minaj may start a charity to pay off her fans’ student loans

  • Nicki Minaj now officially has beef with student loans.
  • After offering to pay some of her Twitter followers’ tuition bills, Minaj posted to Instagram receipts of what she paid and signaled to others that their days of student loan tyranny may soon be over, as well.
  • “This makes me so happy,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’ll do another impromptu payment spree in a month or two but please know that I’m launching my official charity for student loans/tuition payments very soon! You’ll be able to officially sign up! I’ll keep you posted.” Read more. (5/13/17, 11:40 AM)

Things they don’t tell you about top surgery

- Talk to the surgeon about the size you want your new areolas/nipples (don’t be afraid to ask)

- Numbness. No one talks about this for guys who are about to have surgery. You’re going to be numb all in your chest area, especially where the incisions were. They cut nerves as they pass along your chest, and it can take up to a year to regenerate those nerves. Still, feels super foreign for the first two weeks

- Make your bed into a pillow chair, body pillow, two on each side, and two for your head. 

- Sleep alone. I tried to sleep with my girlfriend and it was miserable. You really do need the entire bed for yourself

- Go on Groupon, & get yourself a 10 foot lightning cable iPhone charger, BEST THING EVER, can reach from wherever you are

- Don’t take a week off from work, take two. You will regret the one week, and love the extra time

- When they say “don’t move too much, even after the first week”. LISTEN. I moved way too much and got so sore super quickly. 

- Drink lots of water & eat if your taking the pain medication, otherwise your stomach feels super funky.

- Get stool softeners, & don’t be afraid to take those babies. Don’t wait a week to poop. you’ll surely regret it. 

- The drains are scary & they may hurt while draining or rewrapping your dressings, but once they come out, the second they do, its no more pain, its crazy. 

i hope this helps someone, because i wish i knew all of this when i was having mine a month ago. Looking back its like everyone forgets all the real negatives, its a great experience, & i healed very well & quick compared to most, but the first few days are crazy. They hurt, suck but it gets better. 

Hey, Tumblr.

Today is May 1. The first day of Mental Health Month. This entire month we want to nudge all of you to celebrate triumphs, acknowledge struggles, and just come together. Let other people know they’re not alone. Feel less alone yourself. It’s what Post it Forward is all about.

One of the incredible ways you—all of you—have helped shape Tumblr is with your ability to be open and honest.  It was you that turned this platform into a community, one based on genuine expression, creativity, and acceptance.

Neat. How can I participate?

Glad you asked! Each week, for all four weeks, we’ll be giving you ideas for ways to Post it Forward.

  • Week 1—Post it for you: How you practice self-care and personal well-being.
  • Week 2—Post it for each other: Ways you can be there for each other.
  • Week 3—Post it for reflection: Sharing stories of personal growth and development.
  • Week 4—Post it for the future: Committing to continuous reflection and improvement.

This week is all about posting for you. Acts of self-care. Here are some places to start:

  • Post an emoji spell for self-care and positivity. 🌈 🔮 💕 🌱
  • Share a photo or GIF of something that calms you down. Don’t have one? Here’s one.
  • What’s the one thing that always cheers you up? Post a photo of it, take a GIF, or illustrate it. Toss a sticker on it, if you’d like.
  • Never forget that you are valid! Post a selfie with “valid” sticker (see below).
  • Make a list of things you like about yourself.
  • Make a checklist of 5 acts of self-care you promise to do for yourself this week.
  • Make an audio post with a song that helps you zone out and re-energize.

Don’t forget to tag all your posts with #postitforward this month! It makes it easier for everyone to find each other’s contributions.

What else?

We’ve asked our pal Tumblrbot (@tumblrbot) to help out with any extra encouragement you might need. Try sending them messages like “tell me about Mental Health Month” or “what’s this week’s prompt?” Tumblrbot will let you know what’s up, because Tumblrbot is a friend to all of us.

We got Answer Times, all of them taking place right here on Post it Forward unless indicated otherwise:

We even have some limited edition stickers ready for you in the Tumblr app right now:

Art of May!!! (ok I couldn’t put them all on one post because it was starting to be really too much ^^’)

Painted on PS [2017.05]

It was a really good month, I experimented a lot and had so much fun. Also I want to particularly thank all of you for your supports, your likes, reblogs, comments, tags and messages. I am sooo overwhelmed and I feel so blessed by all of you and yup Thank you guys, you are amazing and I am so lucky!!  Have a really really beautiful day

What I Read During Vacation

So you may or may not know that I was in Greece for about a month in June and I am finally back home! I had such an amazing time and got to catch up and read some really great fics! I didn’t get to read as much as I hoped I would since each day was jam-packed and I had some other readings to finish for my courses. Nevertheless, I read some awesome fics and I can’t wait to share them all with you! (Also, I’m testing out a new way to show my reviews on these posts as I’ve gotten comments about them being lost within the fic summary! Let me know what you think!)

Kintsugi by witchbane, Explicit, 102k (WIP) ***Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Yuuri Katsuki is a hitman burdened with a debt he can never repay. His target: Viktor Nikiforov, next Pakhan to one of the most dangerous families in the Russian mafia.When the two are drawn into a treacherous alliance after a mission gone wrong, the bonds of love and loyalty to family and duty begin to unravel—even as they get more tangled up in each other. 

Have I said how obsessed I am with this fic? Probably, but I’ll say it again. This is SUCH a good mafia AU filled with action, suspense, sexual tension (!!!!) and amazing writing. MUST read if you like mafia AUs!! 

Money Shot by Ashida, Explicit, 36k (WIP)
So Yuuri waited, felt his heart edge back down from his throat as Victor let him catch his bearings, as he just sat and watched Yuuri calm down, patient even though the time he was paying for was ticking.
“Strip for me, Yuuri.” came his first instructions in the lull of silence, the same words he always got, and this is how it always began.

HOOOOO BOY THIS FIC IS SO AMAZING. I have raved about it so many times on this blog but I really just can’t get enough. SO. GOOD.

Pigeon Alley by DiAnna44, Teen, 31k
What’s meant to be will always find a way. Victor and Yuuri? They’re meant to be.

Incredible actor AU that smashes into you like a train going 100000 km/hr hits you right in the feels over and over and over again. Basically, everything Dianna writes will make you cry forever but her incredible storytelling makes it all worth it, and this fic is no exception. 

cancel your reservations by renaissance, Teen, 5.4k 
Yuuri is a college student conducting private fencing lessons for a handsome, rich, and mysterious student. Viktor is not learning to fence because he does medieval reenactments.

Okay, this fic is SO GREAT. I loved the fencing aspect especially because my sister was an Olympic hopeful for fencing so it was fun to read my two favourite characters play the sport I have watched all my life. #writemorefencingfics2k17 ;)

Blackbird by sixpences, Mature, 102k ***Graphic depictions of violence
The year is 1942, and Europe is at war. Captain Victor Nikiforov, an intelligence operative for the NKVD, has been trapped in Berlin by the German invasion of the USSR. Posing as a Nazi industrialist, his days are spent charming information out of Axis diplomats to try and keep the Red Army fighting another day.Yuuri Katsuki, a foreign-educated bureaucrat in the Japanese Embassy, has secrets of his own concealed beneath his unremarkable demeanour. When he uncovers Victor’s real identity, it will alter the course of both of their lives forever.

MUST. READ. One of the best fics I’ve read in this fandom. Incredible writing that engages you right from the start and a storyline that will have you laughing, crying, and biting your nails. Some parts were so intense that I gasped out loud, and other parts so heart-clenching that I may or may not have bawled my eyes out multiple times on the plane. Incredible fic!

The Unknown Unknown by opalish, Teen, 7.4k
Yuuri never meant to become a supervillain. These things just happen to him.

I absolutely ADORE this writer’s style. Such a fun and easy read. Check it out!

Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy by DiAnna44, Explicit, 1.7k
When Victor receives a cowboy hat from a fan, Yuuri may or may not want to devastate him.

Please send all my love to @literallynothingbutvictuuri​ for writing this fic. #blessed 

Between Periods by caitwritesstuff, Mature, 18k (WIP)
Yuuri is a history teacher out of a job due to recent cut backs. It just so happens that Phichit works at a school that’s needs a new history teacher. In walks Victor Nikiforov, the undeniably beautiful yet eccentric literature teacher from across the hall with a bit of an obsession with Russian lit and a certain adorable history teacher.

Great teacher AU that I can’t get enough of! Victor is so cute in this and I love how the whole gang’s there. Can’t wait until the next chapter!

Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts by Reiya, Explicit, 130k (WIP)
Viktor doesn’t remember the first time he met Yuuri Katsuki. This however, is what Viktor does remember…

I can’t rave enough about the rivals series. (I’m not kidding. Search up “umfb&mha” and “obs&bs” on my blog to find hundreds of posts of me screaming LOL) Every update of this kills me in the best way possible!

Nuclear Hearts Club by butterbeerbitch, Teen, 28k (WIP)
Being seventeen and chronically confused isn’t always a walk in the park - especially when you’ve been crushing on your brother’s best friend since you were nine. You’d be crazy not to. Victor’s the best thing to happen to the world since sliced bread.

Wow, wow, and wow is all I have to say about this fic. Such an incredible story and descriptive writing that kept me so engrossed I didn’t even notice the turbulence on my plane flight!

Six Hours Ahead by alipiee, Teen, 51k (WIP)
When Yuuri downloaded the harmless quiz app, he didn’t expect to become best friends with the Russian boy who asked him for a rematch.

I FINALLY got around to reading this and it’s definitely lived up to the hype! Such a great read. Check it out!

And the Stars Will Wait by lily_winterwood, Explicit, 19k
Of all the places he had hoped to take Yuuri during their honeymoon — their first trip together as a married couple — he hadn’t anticipated bringing him back to the family dacha and all the memories it evoked.

More BTDS-verse amazingness!! I’m a sucker for honeymoon fics!

(˃̶͈̀_˂̶͈́)੭ꠥ⁾⁾( ノ_ಠ)₍₍ (̨̡ ‾᷄♡‾᷅ )̧̢ ₎₎

Be sure to give the authors some love! Thank you all for being so patient while I was away. Regular lists are back for the rest of the summer!

This playthrough was a great one

ALSO HEADS UP: my sister just had a baby boy yesterday, so I may be unable to post a comic in the near future when we go to visit her & the baby (she lives a ways away). But don’t worry, I’ll be sure to post two comics on some day after to make up for it if I do miss it :>

Click HERE to check out more Nintendo comics (I have no LP post oops)!

Ohana

Summary: “Ohana means family. And family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” Everyone knows that Dan is a Lester and belongs on the family holiday–well, everyone except Dan himself. However, a beautiful seaside walk and a special surprise from Martyn and Cornelia may be just the ammunition he needs to change his mind.

Genre: Pure fluff

Word Count: 2.6k

Warnings: Like 2 swear words but that’s it

A/N: Because we all know there was some soppy convincing needed to get Dan to stay in Florida. Inspired by this ask over @nihilist-toothpaste.
I hope you enjoy!!

anonymous asked:

Social media is THE outlet of today's teen, and while already vulnerable, easy access to potentially harmful information can increase that vulnerability. What can teenagers do to promote more mental health support across social media in an informed, compassionate way?

I think that there is so much others can do to support mental health. No gesture (or post) is too small. You never know how a positive message will change someone’s day for the better. Yes, there are people who say that this is “slactivism” but when you go on Tumblr and YouTube and see these incredible communities of people coming together to support one another, there is real progress being made. These communities are starting to permeate mainstream culture and are providing a ton of visibility to marginalized groups and the experiences they have. I would say continue to share your stories, continue to identify spaces where young people can be their authentic selves, online and offline. Continue to share your gratitude when someone’s post turned your day around and share it with others who may need to see it too. This is how we can continue to grow our community and let others know what an incredible resource social media can be.

First, take responsibility for your own behavior online. Second, call out questionable or harmful behavior from people that you know online. Third, if you’re comfortable, model honesty and vulnerability in an effort to allow other people to feel safe.

Hey everyone! So you may remember a previous post of mine where August 9th was declared Bottom Hannibal Day. Well @cannibalcuisine​ and I got together and decided to make it a little more “official,” so…

         On Wednesday, August 9th, we humbly invite                    everyone to participate in Bottom Hannibal Day! 

BUT WHYEvery few months, this fandom spends a few days bogged down in the discourse of Bottom Hannibal, usually spurred by someone who is vocally unhappy that they had to witness it in some form or another. Recently the fandom has acknowledged that this gets a little tiresome, so, we propose making this less about repetitive discourse, and more about celebrating our favorite cannibal getting the pounding he truly deserves. After all, this fandom is full of Top Hannibal/Bottom Will, and it’s important to remember, in the words of Bryan Fuller, “They flip.”

OMG WHEN/HOW: On August 9th, post your Bottom Hannibal contributions with the hashtag #BottomHannibalDay or just #BottomHannibal. Please feel free to tag @cannibalcuisine and I (@feyestwords) as well, we’d love to see everything & will be reblogging works. We will also likely add a collection to AO3 for the day (depending on how many people intend to participate).

WHAT?!: Not just fanfiction or art - everyone is invited to contribute whatever they want. Videos, manips, edits, gifsets, murals, dissertations, powerpoint lectures, interpretive dance - all are welcome.

                           We can’t wait to see your beautiful work!

2017 #borderlinebrilliance

Hello everyone, I apologize for the lateness of this announcement but as some of you may know, May is BPD Awareness Month and we are going to celebrate it much like we did last year, with a series of #borderlinebrilliance events every Monday in the month of May, starting this weekend on May 1st!

What is #borderlinebrilliance?

#Borderlinebrilliance is an annual series of events in the month of May for the BPD community to celebrate BPD Awareness Month!  The name is inspired by the selfie blog brilliantborderlines which posts selfies of people with BPD. We believe that we as a community should celebrate all the ways that we are brilliant as people, both as a way to feel good about ourselves and as a way to breakdown the stigma against BPD.  It’s a way to say “we are more than our disorder” and also a way to say that having BPD does not make us any less wonderful or worthy of love and respect and celebration.  

BPD Awareness Month in the past has been fairly negative, an event geared towards educating neurotypical individuals and non-borderlines about the harsh realities of living with borderline personality disorder. While awareness is important for people who don’t know much about BPD, it’s just as important, perhaps more so, to encourage acceptance of the disorder and we who have it. We already know how horrible this illness can be–we talk about the realities of living with BPD all the time.  So this time we want to talk about the fact that we are worthy and deserving of love and acceptance and respect, and a huge part of that is finding a way to believe that about ourselves.   We want BPD Awareness Month to be for borderlines as much as it is about borderlines, and here at SBD we are in a position to celebrate our community, to celebrate each other and our achievements, to support each other, and have fun.  

One of the most radical things that so many of us are trying to learn on our personal journeys through life with BPD is self-love. Self-love is the most crucial and most difficult thing to learn and to accept on the path of recovery.  Since many of us may never fully recover from BPD, we have to learn how to love ourselves, BPD and all.  That means finding a way to conceptualize this disorder so that it is more than solely a source of self-hatred.  It’s a way of helping our community find the hope that things can get better and that we do have things worth celebrating, that we are worth celebrating. So on every Monday for the month of May we’ve planned an event where members of our community celebrate and support our brilliant members.

The #borderlinebrilliance Schedule:

Every Monday during May we are going to have a photo event where you are encouraged to post a photo (or two, or three, or however many you’d like!) that connects to that day’s theme/prompt.  The themes are going to be similar to last year’s.  They are:

  • May 1st - Selfie Day!  Post a selfie, ideally one that you feel particularly good about.
  • May 8th - Identity! Post a photo of something that you feel expresses your identity or a component of your identity. This could be artwork, a character you deeply relate to, a poem, a place or an event that is significant to who you are, etc. We want this month to be about self-love, so try to focus on a part of yourself that you like, that you’re proud of, that you respect, etc.
  • May 15th - Mirrors! Post a photo of something that you feel expresses how you relate to the phenomenon of mirroring. This could include traits or characteristics of another person or character that you’ve adopted (even temporarily) into your own identity, a trait/characteristic/mannerism you’re prone to mirror while in the presence of another person, or a trait/characteristic of another person or character that you want to be able to mirror.
  • May 22nd - Black and White! Post a photo that you feel expresses the concept of Black and White.   This could be a black and white photo, a selfie of you wearing black and white, or something more abstract that expresses black and white thinking or extremes.
  • May 29th - Self-Care! We’ll be posting some guides for how to create a Self-Soothe Kit or a Comfort Box, and we’d like people to share photosets of their creations! Practicing self-care is an important part of working towards self-love, so celebrate the ways that you take care of yourself and the things that help you feel better.

When you post your photos or your prompt responses, remember to tag them with #borderlinebrilliance! We’ll be tracking the tag and will reblog tagged posts to this blog so that the community can see them and celebrate them, and encourage each other.

-Your SBD Mod Team

EDIT: For all the members of our community who feel uncomfortable posting photos of themselves for various reasons, that is absolutely valid! I’ve tried to make the prompts (except for the selfie day) things that you don’t necessarily have to take a picture of yourself in order to participate in, and you don’t have to commit to participating in every event so you’re more than welcome to skip the selfie day if that makes you uncomfortable, but we are also totally on board with the people who would rather post artwork or written responses to the prompts instead of photos!

ATTENTION ALL BOSSES!! I NEED YOUR HELP!

Since Jack’s birthday is February 7th I thought we could do a thing as a community called Jacksepticeye Boss Week.
This is going to be a week long event and I want as many people involved as possible!
The event will start February 1st and go everyday until February 7th. Each day will have a topic for you guys to create upon and I will make every effort I can to make sure Jack sees them.
The topics I had in mind are:
Day 1 Feb 1st) The first video you watched of Jack’s
Day 2 Feb 2nd) Your favorite series of Jack’s
Day 3 Feb 3rd) Your favorite slogan, catchphrase or quote of Jack’s
Day 4 Feb 4th) Your favorite thing about Jack himself
Day 5 Feb 5th) How has Jack helped you/ what has he done for you
Day 6 Feb 6th) Show off old creations that Jack may not have seen
Day 7th) A happy birthday post

Keep in mind that while I would like to stay in the frame of these topics I am open to suggestions for better ones.

You can post anything in those topics on the topic day or if you feel you cannot, please send me the post with the day labeled and I will post post it for you and give you full credit.
I’m giving you all a month which hopefully it’s enough time to think and prep so get those creative gears spinning! Anything includes videos, art, gifs, text posts, photos, and pretty much all forms of media. You can share it on any platform with the #JSEBossWeek when the time comes be sure to tag Jack as well! I am so excited to do this and I will be working on stuff myself. If you have any further questions feel free to message me or send me an ask.
Please help me get the word out to the rest of the community but DO NOT TAG JACK IN THE REBLOG OF THIS POST ANYWHERE! It’s a surprise silly :p! Thank you guys!
