Tracey Gordon, the protagonist in the Netflix hit show, Chewing Gum — a British comedy about a 20-something Christian woman on a quest to lose her virginity and find herself — is weird. The fact is, if I knew her in real life, she’d probably irritate me a lot. And yet, I love her.
I don’t just love her because we’re both British-born Africans. Or that, like her, I lived in public housing for part of my childhood, or that we both have dirty laughs. I love her because she, mostly, succeeds in breaking free from what society and her faith have told her she should be and how she should act.
LBM17 is over, but I have a little gem for you: Visiting my favorite “item shop” on the convention.I went there like 5 times a day (because it was nice and cheap) and greeted the cute cashier this way upon entering. Always.
The convention was amazing. Being Ardyn for three days (instead of two) was the best thing ever. Really. It was so much fun meeting all the other FFXV Cosplayers. Maybe a small selfie-post will follow later. (and i have a cute little clip of Noctis)
hey! so i'm fairly new too bootlegs and i don't have anything to trade with. how do i start if i have nothing? i don't want to trick someone into giving me something, i want to do it fair and square.
a lot of people are really nice and will try to give you a bootleg you want even if you don’t have anything in return and then you’ll have something to trade in the future!! if you message me off anon im sure we can work something out because i think that everyone should be able to see the shows they really want to
heres a lil nina who knows that sharing is caring :)
after over a year, I’ve finally finished my floral watercolor journal! this book has been through a lot and was such a great starting place to practice floral painting. I couldn’t be happier with the progress I’ve made!
Feel like I’ve mostly just been posting dude art recently?? And i am not about that gender imbalance! especially bc i have a lot of ladies in my sketchbook! I just hardly ever post anything from my sketchbook so they are invisible to the world ;-;
first one is Beanie, the trinket shop owner in the seaside town for the eel story, second is Vanda and her flower gf which i have yet to name! but she is purple :y, and the last is Rhea because i love everything about her!
What’s so interesting about the LOC letters and getting all this additional information is that it again makes clear that Hamilton and Eliza did not like to be apart.
So often, if he goes to Albany without her, it’s because the kids are sick and they can’t travel and, obviously, Eliza won’t leave them. There are tons of letters where Philip Schuyler is like “we were so looking forward to seeing you, and I’m so sorry my Dear James is sick and prevented you from accompanying my Dear General.”
It again just throws out the narrative that Hamilton didn’t like her or was somehow only tolerating her or something. And it really portrays their marriage as strong and their family of the upmost importance to them.
rarity’s cutie mark is my favourite, mostly because i love how complex the meaning is, and her cutie mark story is so cute but like i basically feel that way about all of the mane 6 … i just love all of the designs
i didnt even draw her cutie mark ?!?! i just wanted to draw something that sort of captures what it represents ????
