my style did a weird thing for this i am idk

anonymous asked:

Harry basically just confirmed haylor was a thing soooo... Idk how to respond

“Conf-”

Oh lord. 

Okay I’ve literally not looked at social media for most of the day because I’m working somewhere where I deal with sensitive information and therefore cannot have my phone at my desk. 

So I have no idea what anyone thinks of that article aside from @vocabularryonthemind , @mellygrant and @nautilarrie who I text on the reg during my breaks to be like, “VASS HAPPENIN SELENE???” But today was an exception because I was trying to Focus™ and thus I really have no concept of anyone’s reaction to this article. 

I read it in my uber to work and almost threw my phone out the window because, being the darkest fucking Larrie possible, I live in Laurel/Larry Canyon and this diner he speaks of is where Choe ( @vocabularryonthemind) and I go to write when we don’t want to upset my housemates with our witch cackling writing sessions. And THE COUNTRY STORE IS WHERE I GO TO GET MY UK NECESSITIES EW HARRY LET ME LIVE. I can literally throw a rock off my balcony and hit the Country Store so I was all kinds of, “WHAT FUCKING SORCERY IS THIS???” when I read that article. I moved to LA and had naht a clue about what was what and just chose this place randomly and honestly after having a job across the street from where Liam lived in London I never thought shit could get weird like that again but here I am. Destined to be forever fuckin reminded of what trash I am for 1D because they’re literally in my goddamn face.  

Actual footage of me trying to leave the 1D fandom:

What the hell were we talking about? Never underestimate my ADHD and ego’s ability to literally make anything about me. 

Oh yeah! Haylno. 

Look mad props to Tay Tay for her successful career and such, but Harry couldn’t have swerved that question harder than if he literally went for a wee and never came back. This was probably him on that super long wee break:

“Uhhhh Jeff what should I say?…Yeah I’m not gonna say that, bye.” *click* … “Lou they’re asking about her…” And Louis was all

Just kidding…this guy was never just going to like flamboyantly jump into the spotlight all

Omg jk again because lol

Harry be like 

I’m sorry, but Harry didn’t get the fuckin bee for you to be a weak Larrie. 

This “confession”…

As Michael McIntyre said, “They are media. Trained. Super stars!”

Harry might be bangin on the closet door but he can hardly just casually mention that the most heavily manufactured and public relationship he’s ever had was fake. I mean, I try to take everything Harry says literally but the man actually dresses up teddy bears to send coded messages and the irony of his cheery, “I’ve been completely honest with you *WINK*!” parting words weren’t lost on me. 

So you’re telling me that for 20 months, when we have actual proof (FROM LOUIS AND HARRY VIA THEIR OWN MOUTHS AND TWITTERS) that Louis and Harry were living together, Harry slept on a mattress on the floor in Ben Winston’s attic? 

I mean they’ve been trying to rewrite that part of history for ages, and who knows why? Not me. 

I don’t doubt he was a regular guest, but I hardly believe that he was this hobo that the Winstons make him out to be. 

Anyway, I’ve been saying it for awhile, but “Style” is about John Mayer, not Harry. (x

Harry continues to be classy about how he approaches this issue, which is WAY more than anyone can say about Taylor Swift. It was almost F I V E  Y E A R S ago and she still allows everyone to speculate that every song she writes was about a one-month bearding stint, whereas Harry has talked about it literally once, and probably as a necessity in toeing the line in this new solo venture. 

What better way to keep his aggressively private life private than by vaguely acknowledging a four week “relationship”…if you’re trying to tell me that an entire album was forged from that then maybe you should be talking to a Taylor Swift blog because I don’t believe that shit for a second. 

Harry did mention that the entire album was for a “she”. He also said…

and

…am I the only one who thought he was talking about Anne?

Anyway, I saw this as a very significant step away from the “lothario” and “womanising” image that was created around him throughout the entirety of the first few years of One Direction. I thought the article was honest and served its purpose. And proved once again that Harry is more of a show than tell kind of guy. 

And that he is one

SHADY

BETCH

security blanket

[✗] random thought that keeps entering my head and I need to write it down. 

[✗]  Jughead and Betty- day after they kiss but it is not gonna be revolved around what happens in the episode today because 1. IDK WHATS GONNA GO DOWN IN THE EPISODE 2. makes it easier to write. PLEASE ENJOY. <33


Betty Cooper felt anxious. Her hands were slick with sweat and every loud noise she heard made her jump. Knowing that Polly was out somewhere, hurt (which was clear from the blood on the shattered window), pregnant, and on the move was terrifying. On top of that, Betty had the police tell her that the car with all of the evidence was found being burned to a crisp.

Betty swiped her hands on the side of her jeans quickly once she approached the schools entrance. A blank expression crossed her face as she made her way down the hallway, hoping no one would notice she was in a mood. She decided to tune out the wild students with a random song, ‘Check yes Juliet..’ began to play in her head which quickly made her stop in place.

Jughead.

Her heart fluttered anxiously at the thought of his name. Betty really did like Jughead, she realized now that it totally came of as her not being interested when she brought up the car. How stupid could she be? ‘The car.’ way to ruin a moment 101 with Betty Cooper.

Suddenly an arm swung around Betty’s waist causing her to let out a squeak of surprise. 

“Woah, B. Jumpy much?” Veronica quipped with a raised eyebrow.

Betty laughed it off and gave a small smile before starting to walk “Sorry, just tired is all.” was her lame response. Veronica nodded but didn’t seem impressed.

“Anyway’s what happened last night?” Veronica asked causing Betty’s face to flush nervously.

“What do you mean?” 

“Uhm hello, you and Jughead were no where to be found at the talent show last night.” She responded whilst pulling her into another area. Betty let out an ‘OH’ realizing she was silly for thinking Veronica knew Betty and Jughead kissed.

“I was just, uh, chilling?” 

“Is that a question or an answer?” Veronica asked with narrow eyes.

An arm was placed around Betty’s shoulder’s causing yet ANOTHER weird noise to escape her mouth. “It’s an answer Veronica, stop with the interrogating, this isn’t  Nancy Drew.” Jughead said with a forced laugh. Betty looked up at him and mouthed ‘Thank you.’ before turning to look at Veronica with a small smile and nervous laughter.

“Um, excuse me? Do you know who I am? I might as well be Nancy Drew, Veronica Lodge always get answers out of people.” She hissed with a sickly sweet smile to Jughead before she turned and sauntered away.

“Well that was fun,” Betty said all in one breathe, Jughead’s hand lightly traced patterns on her left shoulder over the plaid shirt she wore, which she didn’t notice before until it was just him and her standing in the emptying hallway.”So, how was your night? Sleep well?” She asked glancing up at his blue eyes that were inspecting her face.

“I slept okay Bett’s,” He answered softly, making her heart race faster, “The real question’s we should be asking though, is, are you stealing my style?” 

She laughed looking down at the shirt she was wearing. Maybe she was, he did wear plaid a lot, or had it mixed into his outfit somehow. With a shrug she pulled away from his arm on her shoulder and grinned up at him “You scared that I’m gonna pull it off better than you, Juggie?” She asked teasingly while walking backwards down the hallway.

OH, I know you’re gonna pull it off better than me.”

That made her smile grow wider, if that was even possible. Jughead noticed the growing distance and gave a pouted look “Where you going Juliet?” he asked with his arms outstretched towards her.

“Hm, there is this thing called class Romeo.” She said with false curiosity. 

“Oh, I’m a–” She completely blocked out what he was saying, her eyes looked over Jughead and she almost couldn’t believe that someone like him was interested in her. Soft raven hair, the curl that hung out of his beanie, his eyes had to be the most beautiful eyes she had ever seen in her life. She never had thought of him like that until a few days ago, because she was so hung up on Archie. Of course she knew Jughead was an attractive guy but never did she think she would be so consumed with this many feelings for him.

“Why are you staring at me?” He asked with squinted eyes.

Betty giggled, thinking of a quote she read a while ago. It usually is for the guy to say to the girl but it felt necessary in this moment, “Because you’re beautiful.” She said in a an overly romantic voice. 

Jughead’s jaw dropped and he let out the loudest laugh she had ever heard from him. She laughed as well, his laughter and smile was extremely contagious. “I can’t believe,” laughter, “you just said,” more laughter, “Betty that was amazing.” 

“Thanks Juggie!” His laughter faltered a bit and he finally started walking towards her, as a joke she decided to turn and start running down the hallway to her class that was late to. Apparently she didn’t run fast enough because before she knew it his long legs had caught up to her and he grabbed her by the waist, pulling her into his arms (which she had thought was very romantic until..) and throwing her over his shoulder. Betty pounded her hand on his back “I swear, if you drop me I will-”

“You will what?” Jughead teased from above.

“I don’t know yet, but I will do something okay.”

He let out a hum of amusement and then began his walk to class. With a defeated sigh Betty went limp “Can you please let me down?” She asked giving his butt a gentle pat.

He jumped a little “I will let you down if you stay with me and NOT run away.” Jughead added lots of emphases on the ‘NOT’. “I won’t run okay. Pleeeeeeease.” 

With a grunt Betty was placed on the ground, her smile came back once she realized what he had said, ‘if you stay with me’. It warmed her heart and made her insides feel like they were melting. She also realized in that moment, her horrible mood from this morning was now gone for the time being and she couldn’t be more thankful.

Betty placed her hands on Jughead’s waist and slowly slid them behind into a hug, her head perfectly placed under his chin. His own arms wrapped around her once her registered what was happening, he was warm like a blanket and it radiated so much comfort. “Thanks Juggie.” She said contently. 

“For what?” He asked, squeezing her into a tighter hug. 

Betty closed her eyes and smiled “For being here.” 

She could hear his breathe pick up and the soothing pumping of his heart, and then she felt the soft kiss placed on the top of her head. “I’ll always be here.”


LOL THAT WAS TRASH BUT I NEEDED TO WRITE SOMETHING OR I WAS GONNA GO CRAZY, cOOL 10/10 anyways I feel like shit and my throat hurts so bad, goodnight! <3 (ignore any spelling errors please, its so late and i’m V tired)

anonymous asked:

Any thoughts on Phil's liveshow? If you do, I'd love to hear them!

yaaaa omg i actually just didn’t get a lot of specific/excited questions about it and therefore got sidetracked watching the young pope lmao but YES, it was so good and def several things worth noting: 

1. the signed pic of angel in a bubble bath. like, wow. i can’t believe that phil opened with this. i can’t believe that we’re at a point where phil is comfortable showing this. i wonder if he felt dan backed him into a corner tho? bc it def didn’t seem like he had any intention of telling us beforehand and then he kept sort of mentioning that “everyone was asking” him about it and tweeting him about it and wanting to see it so i just wonder if phil was like very much not intending to ever let it see the light of day but then felt pressured by everyone asking and then i wonder whether dan had to sort of talk him down from being worried about it in some way??? ???? ? ? idk!!!!! like he seemed very calm and giggly about it but only bc, in my opinion, he seemed to have prepared a story around it that was designed to dilute its impact (that he has loved buffy for ages, that dan was for sure looking for a sarah michelle gellar photo and couldn’t find one so he settled for this one, as though there were no other shops anywhere that would have sarah michelle gellar photos for dan to find. that it “wasn’t the signed buffy photo he was expecting” etc. etc.) and then many comments about being very put off by the photo, all of them slightly tempered by the fondness in his eyes and the loveliness of his laughter. idk, overall, such a big step that he shared it (possibly against his original will), but he still did it very much on his terms, in a language he is comfortable with. 

i just love that dan literally bought phil a nude photo of a dude in a bath for his bday like how are we at the point that that is a confirmed thing that we have seen with our own eyes and that we are allowed to KNOW? i feel like i’m living in some alternate reality and every single day things keep happening with them that make me literally wonder when the fuck it happened and just rejoice that we’re getting to see it aeorijaoweirjaowierjaoewr fuck man

2. the little commentary from phil about how in their photoshoots dan is the one who gets to “do the nice smile” and people always make phil do a weird face which inevitably leads to his infamous crazy eyes. that was interesting to me bc i didn’t realize it would be so set in stone that they’d be asked to assume those roles in their professional pics but i guess it makes sense and matches up to the “branding” of phil as strange/quirky and dan as the normie/ “straight man” that is and has been discussed to death. to me it was more interesting that phil didn’t really seem that bothered by it and to also hear him talk about photo anxiety yet again, and always resorting to big eyes as a way to save him from the awkwardness of figuring out how to pose his face in a more serious fashion 

3. YET ANOTHER movie date why are they living in a utopian ideal of domestic bliss i hate them. and yet another date/outing that was accompanied by a heaped serving of social awkwardness and catastrophe. i swear their life is simultaneously too funny and lovely to be real. my fav part of this was that the story started with phil referencing the poor middle-aged dude face-planting into “dan’s popcorn” but then by the end he was saying “our popcorn.” cute. the fact they saw another movie together. with footstools. so, so cute. the fact that phil was very open and intentional and repetitive with his explanation that he went with dan, that it was he and dan in the darkened theater, dan and phil getting accosted by a falling man,,, he could’ve potentially told that story without dan? and maybe would’ve done so at some point in the distant past? but not this time. and the casual “we” he used throughout the live show was lovely too.

4. his thoughts on manchester by the sea sounded very similar to dan’s style of reviewing films in live shows and v un-phil. phil normally sticks to broad opinions: either he liked it or it was ‘okay’ or ‘not the best,’ but this time he gave v specific things he liked and a bit more nuanced opinions and i was into it. 

5. so much about the gas leaks that i don’t really even know where to start. first of all: “you need to move.” “i know.” this is the first direct acknowledgment of moving, i believe, from either of them. holy shit? and then the fact that he said “hotel vlogs” if they were to go to a hotel, as though that’s something they’d ever give us. and then towards the end of the conversation: “is dan okay?” “yes, we’re fine.” i love when one of them answers on behalf of both of them, it’s gross and also so instinctive and it makes my heart soar. i feel like all of the jokes have been made about the very universe trying to force them to move and i’ve written so much on how sure i am that it’s going to happen soon, so i have nothing to add there. it’s happening SOON yall. they’re moving. i guarantee. 

6. phil retelling the meerkat story was so adorable. phil googling random things to have as pets like sugar gliders and talking about dog breeds before once again saying he should stick to plants was adorable and also just continued to solidify for me that they’re BADLY in want of a dog and just as firmly do not feel that it is the right time for it. phil’s coat…. is adorable ….. i HATE having nothing to say about phil things beyond “WOW SO CUTE” bc it’s dumb and reductive a lot of the time but genuinely, during this ls, a lot of the stuff that was under discussion was just v fluffy and cute. 

overall: heartwarming. a bit groundbreaking. ironically, both of those things applied to nearly every piece of content dnp have made so far in 2017. just sitting here totally unprepared for each new development that seems to be happening with each passing day :’)

IDK WHY THIS TOOK SUCH A LONG TIME BUT HERE’S MARKKKKKKKKK.

Artists Self Rec Tag

When you get this, reply with your favourite five or so drawings, then pass on to about five other artists.

Got tagged by the lovely and loving @lonepiper5758 so let’s see how this goes! Thanks dear <33


Ngl this feels weird? And sorry this is a long post Idk how to format it really 0A0

1. Puppy Kisses-  It was a last minute drawing but I’m truly pleased with how it came out. There aren’t a whole lot of pics I’ve done where I can say I wouldn’t redo some part of it given enough time but I don’t have that issue here? I’m usually a bit nervous posting things with little Maes so for this to get the kind reception it did was pleasantly surprising as well!

2. Sleepless- @ohsnapsnapsparkspark ruined me with one of her drabbles (as she has a habit of doing) and this was one of the results. The lighting and palette were both enjoyable challenges (I’m particularly happy with the foggy raindrop effect achieved on the window) and I was also somewhat proud of myself using those elements to tie this photo set in with another comic.

3. As Old As Time + Character Designs- Man I went through so many versions of this  pic for @the-flame-and-hawks-eye‘s birthday before I ended up right back where I first started: the LA Beauty and the Beast marquis poster. There’s a few things that need a small tweak but overall I’m good with the outcome because it was such a huge experiment? New brushes, new painting style, hundreds of scales CHARACTER DESIGN, maintaining the integrity of the original without flat out copying… yep for not knowing what I was doing I feel pretty good about it! I think it’s the closest I have ever come to achieving the golden ratio *___*

4. Wedding Prompt-  Ok yeah there’s a reason this has been my header for so long.  I’ve always pictured them having a late September wedding and I feel I captured that gorgeously warm, dusky early fall/dying summer lighting. The lace was fun to draw as well and I’m glad you can actually see it in this one XD

5. Moving Forward- It’s old and a bit messy and stiff in some parts but I am damn proud of this idea and the emotional whiplash with which it was executed. I will always treasure it because it brought my sister to tears and that’s not an easy thing to do ^w^

6. Princess Bride AU 1 and 2 - (doing an extra one just for you Paula :D) Ah yes, my most popular post to date. I honestly don’t know how I came up with all this and tied it all together but the result makes me feel quite clever XD It was one of those things that just takes over your whole brain? Like I remember bolting up in my bed at 2:30 in the morning to declare to my sister who Edward would be in this setting.  I just couldn’t stop adding to it. Again some things need tweaking but I’m still content with it overall. Now I’m just waiting for Buttercup’s Baby to be released so I can work bby Maes in too XDDD

Ok enough about me now to hear from some of my favorite people!
@ask-royai-lty @fullmetal-fitblr @thesilentwatcher @murrchow @kristicles @abstractmouse @meiosis2 and @choestoe, you’re up! (no worries if you don’t want to though ^,^)

part 1 of: i love this fandom and you guys make me emotional

Everyone is being so sweet and adorable and emotional today and I just felt like I should add my valentine’s sugar to it too. 

I got this blog almost two years ago, not coincidentally when I moved to Texas with just my boyfriend, from Florida from where I had spent my entire life in. I was very alone and since I’m not the coolest of cats, making friends has been…extremely difficult lol.

But getting this blog, and joining this fandom, I’ve really found myself looking forward to come home and see who’s posting on the dash, see who’s chosen to grace me with their follow, or who’s left me a tumblr message (remember, before the IM system haha).

@sinuyasha and @inukag were the first people to welcome me and reblog my writing and just became my overall points of contact for anything fandom related. I felt accepted and wanted and this was the only corner of the entire internet I could really call home. I can’t thank them enough for always being genuine and kind and beautifully forgiving ladies. On top of the fact they’re funny and gorgeous so I really lucked out befriending them. I owe my entire blog to them, and my activity, and my heart.

Later on I’d come to meet my squad, @kristicles @thequeenwillruletheboard @narkik @mirsan and @ohstarfire, and grow an overwhelmingly wonderful bond. I mean dudes, we went to Disney AND Universal Studios together. I’m pretty much married to them. (Which does mean you guys have to give me half your shit in case of divorce). I’m keeping it short for ya’ll cause I don’t care about you at all (I would set fire to myself if you thought for one second that was true). You are my people. You are my shots of whiskey in the dark. 

To the fandom:

I really would have never expected to feel love radiating from some of you towards me. I feel in my heart I don’t even deserve it. I have done nothing (or everything wrong). And you guys posting your fics and your art, and your edits, and all you’re LOVE and you’re FRIENDSHIP, it holds no value because it is PRICELESS. But I feel it towards all of you. I get it. It’s weird it’s unheard of maybe for a small anime fandom, but I FEEL IT. I love you guys. I would never want a single one of you to leave, or if you do have to leave, just please stay in touch. Please keep updating your fanfiction.nets, please keep updating your artwork online when finished, I just…

If you’ve been in this fandom for the past year, you get it. And it almost feels like we’ve all collectively been through some drama here and there together. I’ve made mistakes, I regret getting involved in things all the time, but I appreciate every single one of you who hasn’t deleted me from their life. I appreciate how I can still turn around and count on you guys to be there for me. And I will always be there for you. I love that after a giant cloud of darkness shrouded us, freaking @inuyashapositivity pops up like a ray of sunshine. We are an amazing incredible wonderful fandom and we are loud and vibrant and beautiful. 

@onikik, @little-known-artist @wreathoflaurels, @arnavsinghraizada, @gobodosama, @artistefish @meselfandwhy, @inuijiness @starzki@scribefigaro @smilebomber @kaze-ranna @412rebelled @hanmajoerin @ashcanvas (SHHHH…ASHLEY I DIDN’T JUST ADD YOU THIS MORNING BECAUSE I HAD A BRAIN FART LAST NIGHT…ILY) you guys have seen me at my worst and for some inexpiable reason you’re still my friends and I respect and admire you so so much. I really can’t put into words properly, but my respect for you is something that can and will never vanish. I consider you guys a huge reason why I enjoy the Inuyasha fandom as much as I do. I’m comfortable around you guys and I hope you feel the same way around me. I love you guys, and I would do anything for you. I’d end someone’s life for you. I’d jump into battle for you. I’d throw all my money at your face if I knew it would make you happy. Thank you for being my friends. Really. You are my inner-circle, and without you, I am just a square. 


I’ve met some new people in the past year, who maybe I don’t talk to but I feel like I’ve gotten to know more simply through the small interactions we have, and whom I’m so so so happy joined tumblr to grace us with their content, their presence, and their overall humor and love and joy. 

@grapefruitwannabe, I remember I was in a stream with you and someone was urging you to post your sketches and you were reluctant about it, and god now look at you. Your art is incredible. It’s unique, it has a style, it has movement. You give a tremendous amount to the fandom and you never ask for anything in return. You are so nice too? You know how rare it is to find kind people who are just the sweetest creatures ever? You are a precious cupcake too good for this earth, and we so blessed to have you. 

@sess-kik I knew from the moment you made the taylor swift/kanye west meme, that I regretted not being considered one of your friends. You are fucking oustanding. You are hilarious. You make my ribs hurt. You are like a baby beyonce. I mean that. Picture yourself as beyonce’s’ child because that’s how I view you. 

@justafewsmallsteps you know what’s crazy is that I followed and admired you from afar for so so so long. I am a huge fan. I mean. HUGE. I mean, ridiculously huge. I mean I may have printed out your art and have it stored in my cabinet so I can look at sometimes because I was that (maybe i still am idk) obsessed with your work, and to find out you are a shining ball of sunlight and positivity and love and friendliness. You know…what that feels like ? It’s like meeting a Disney Princess in real life. 

@coquinespike HAHA LOOK SOMEONE TAGGED YOU AGAIN. I’M SORRY. Listen I actually always see you in my notes. I always read your tags cause they’re fucking hilarious. Your comments on things are A+. I don’t know why I didn’t start following you sooner. I am an idiot, what else is new. Cheers to the future.

@keichanz what took you so long to join tumblr, i keep asking myself this question. EVERYONE KNOWS THE KEIZ FROM FF.NET. You are always supporting InuKag and the fandom and there’s a lot of bloggers that I know would not be the same without your presence. I see names all the time that were just quiet little daisies, and you watered those plants and now look at them. You’ve inspired so many people, and you are always just so generous and so loving. Thank you for writing, thank you for participating in events, thank you for being the oil in the inukag gears. Quite literally. 

@lovely-taijiya GABY. DID YOU KNOW THAT I THINK ABOUT YOU ALMOST EVERY DAY. Okay well. Now you do. I get so happy when I see your art on my dash. I get full of butterflies and good feelings. If you were around I would hug you constantly and hold you close to my heart, because you deserve unnerving amounts of love. 

@kag-san you are a gift granted to us by the gods. you are an angel. you are a walking living breathing version of the virgin mary and I would weep at your feet if i could because I think you deserve everything in life and more. Trust me when I say the people who ship things, make me ship things harder. And this candle for KagSan is now a torch and it’s setting my house on fire but I couldn’t be happier. 

@piggy-in-pink you are like Sesshomaru. And by that I mean you are silent and we may cross paths and look at each other and I would be totally fine with you killing me because I admire you just that much. But no honestly, you are wise and clever and I love your work and your existence a lot. Thanks for never changing your url also, it makes life so much easier. (TAKE NOTES PEOPLE)

@mmhinman I remember the first time I went to your blog. You submitted a bunch of wonderful art for InuKag week late, and it blew my mind. I couldn’t believe someone would submit SO LATE but also have it be SO QUALITY. Haha. Your art brings me life, and I can’t thank my lucky stars enough that fate pushed you my way and onto my dash. Thank you thank you thank you. 

@macabre-and-cheese you know that really cool girl in the lunch room who sits with her posse, and is immensely more awesome than you and dates all the attractive people, and knows all the cool songs and she could say “frosty” once and it becomes a meme catchphrase, okay yeah, you know that person? that’s you. on my dash. that’s you. I’m always like “if i reblog this onto my personal, my personal blog gets that much cooler” and I think I have 80 followers on my personal blog now and I owe that all to your and your coolness i swear to god I do. 

@kago-make-dean-some-pie YOUR URL IS SO LONG. EXPLAIN IT TO ME. I love that I’ve gotten to know you better and your AMVs are the bomb dot com. You are so willing to make others feel amazing and wonderful and I hope you feel that way every single day of your life. You are so down to earth and I love you very much.

anonymous asked:

has it ever been fully stated anywhere that toshi looked like AM 24/7 until he got his injury turned into skeledad?? because i really was under the impression that he had always had two different forms at least to some degree, and i really don't remember anyone in BNHA ever saying anything that would contradict either theory?? (i'm not trying to argue which is true, i'm just confused and don't know if i missed a panel or something where this was cleared up)

Okay so, i’ll admit that most of that was me making inferences based on the information we have so far. it hasn’t been outright confirmed that All Might looked like his muscle form 24/7 prior to his injury, but based on the info we have, i think he did, at least, look very, very similar

based on their build, i can only assume that Toshi was very similar to Izuku before he got One for All. Maybe he was slightly more muscular, but not by much. which means, his body wasn’t an ideal host and had to train and build up the muscles he needed to properly use OFA.

we know for sure that an unprepared body can’t handle OFA. their limbs would ripped from their bodies. which means, Toshi had to train his body up and up and up until he could truly control OFA without ever hurting himself in the process. and we do see a bit of this in Gran Torino’s flashback.

Look at Toshi’s body. his muscles are already much bigger than they were before. They’re not quite at All Might’s size, but leads me to believe that Toshi’s true form prior to his injury must’ve been just as buff as All Might.

(and, considering the outfit, this was during his time at UA, which must’ve been at least 15-20 years ago, given 4-5 year old Izuku calls All Might’s debut footage ‘old’)

Look at Izuku’s body. his muscles don’t buff up when he uses OFA. he just gains the strength, not the endurance. All Might has both strength AND endurance. OFA isn’t the ability to buff up your muscles, it’s the simple strength. which, again, leads me to believe that Toshi’s natural body looked just like All Might’s.

he continued to train and train and train until he had the endurance to match his insane strength.

Here, Toshi says he’s wasted away due to the surgeries that he’s gone through. This tells me that he used to look completely different prior to receiving the wound that  AFO gave him 5 years ago. nothing at all like his skeledad form. which implies that he used to look much more fit, or at least, closer to his All Might form.

all together, this leads me to believe that All Might’s true form was just as muscular as his muscle form. This is why i think he’s still able to change into his muscle form, even tho he can’t use OFA anymore. his body did, at one point, look like that naturally. but he needs the strength of OFA to access that form for longer periods of time. since he no longer has the strength to access that form, he can’t hold it for longer than a few seconds. to put it simply, it’s muscle memory on a really weird scale.

however, the one thing that does seem to truly change from All Might’s true form and his hero form (at least, ignoring his emaciation due to his injury) is his hair. his natural hair is the scruffy, long hair he has in his skeledad form. He’s had that hair style since he was a kid, as shown in the first image. but when he puts on his All Might persona, however, his hair does seem to physically change (and… who knows how he even does that idk)

it gives a visual cue to show us when he’s being Toshinori and when he’s being All Might. which is why i can pretty confidently say that Toshinori looked very similar to All Might prior to his injury, because in that flashback we see with him and Gran Torino, his hair isn’t pointed up or pushed back, it’s just regular old Toshi training up his body (and getting the crud kicked outta him)

ska;ga; okay so this was an overly long response to your ask but. y eah. that’s why i think All Might’s true form used to look like his muscle form (excluding the hair, at least)

i hope that answered your question!!

How about headcanons for this: The RFA and them finding out the MC is a "Forever" style immortal (i.e. whenever they die they wake up naked in the nearest body of water and they stopped aging the first time they died.)

sure thing, anon! also thanks for clearing that up, I have no idea what that is >.> I hope I get this right! ^^; it also might be short, since i don’t know much about this topic;;;


woah rfa, so no saeran! also, i’m assuming that this probably happened to mc already and like the rfa is finding out…yes? oh well

zen

  • so get this, they were sharing childhood pictures and zen notices something weird about mc’s pictures
  • like, they’re really old pictures. older than his 
  • but mc totally said they were like, 23 
  • he doesn’t want to seem too weird, so he casually asks
  • “hey mc, when’s your birthday? I want to know your star sign..and your chinese zodiac” smooth move, zen 
  • and they answer their full birthday because chinese zodiacs need those 
  • now, zen isn’t the best with math, but he knows that year would not make them 23
  • it took a minute for mc to realize what they said though
  • they both stare at each other for a bit before mc breaks the silence with a profound “um..” 
  • and now they have to explain while zen is trying to wrap his head around this
  • “wait, so you’re…not 23?” duh zen, catch up “technically, no. physically, yes.” 
  • at the end of that discussion, he kind of comes to terms with it 
  • is kind of sad that they have to live forever, so his selfie habits get worse is this the first time i mentioned his selfies? i think so wow
  • believe it or not, he also gets cheesier. “i want to leave the biggest impression on you”

yoosung

  • he needs the most time to wrap his head around it
  • it was one of those nights where they were spilling secrets about themselves and mc couldn’t help but tell the whole story
  • at first, he doesn’t believe them. it’s too crazy
  • but they start bringing up more pieces of evidence and now he’s just amazed
  • they spend the rest of the night cuddling and telling happier stories
  • guess what happens the next day, though?
  • yoosung bought a polaroid 
  • that’s right, it’s about the be Aesthetic 
  • but seriously, he just wants tangible pictures in their hands as soon as they take them
  • because it’s so present and in the moment
  • and that’s where he is with mc
  • even if they spent a while doing other things, meeting other people
  • they mean so much to him and he hopes he can mean as much to them 

jaehee

  • she is…surprised, to say the least 
  • honestly, she doesn’t spend too much time thinking about how it happens to mc, but rather how time is so weird and both limited and unlimited
  • how she found out, was because she was gathering data on mc and decided to find their birthday
  • she dug up some interesting stuff, like wow 
  • tells mc what she found and they’re kind of embarrassed, but they tell her everything
  • now, she’s more open with pda and with herself in general 
  • admittedly, she’s much happier than she was before
  • and it’s all thanks to mc
  • so it becomes her mission to return the favor 
  • time is a Lie, so she wants mc to feel like the time with her is forever

jumin

  • is interested in the concept
  • look, he reads weird books, i’m sure he read at least one of these
  • mc is now going to be Extra Spoiled
  • call him materialistic, but materials last forever and mc can keep them forever
  • takes more time off because “i have to spend as much time as i can with my spouse, you don’t understand”
  • really tries extra hard to sort out his feelings and mc is actually really helpful with this
  • they like to read with him and knit and stuff, they are the cutest
  • jumin knits too, he made them a scarf 
  • basically, everything becomes like 5 times more domestic 
  • learns to take proper pictures too 
  • because wow! he needs 8454754 pictures of mc in his phone now 

707 / luciel / saeyoung

  • ahhhhhh
  • now he has the desire to live long 
  • so much that he actually starts taking care of himself 
  • “we will get married at the space station, it can be our 4th wedding if we need it to be, we will get there”
  • he made a robot version of himself
  • and a game of just him and mc, doing domestic and cute couple things :)))))
  • basically, if there’s a way to make sure he is immortalized with mc in some way, he’s going to do it 
  • has no time to push them away now, he is super clingy all the time 
  • sometimes, he has nightmares :(
  • you know his, “i’ll wait for you in another universe?” yeah. that becomes his Thing 

v / jihyun

  • so v here pulls his whole “i am your sun” stuff, again 
  • and mc pulls out “if you’re the sun, I’m your stars.” 
  • yes i know, they’re both stars but hear me out
  • mc makes the connection because v, like the sun, is so bright and there. you can’t miss it’s presence. it’s warmth touches everything
  • but, when the sun is out of sight, stars come out and keep the sky bright. they’re not warm, they’re old. most of them are probably dead, but they’re there. 
  • and the stars, like mc, help people through dark times 
  • v was going through some dark times
  • oh no, he’s crying oh no im crying
  • he also gets the surgery as soon as possible, he needs to see mc clearly
  • when he finally sees them clearly, mc smiles at him and says, “seems like it’s a clear night..”
  • he happy cries and is like “it is..I can see the stars…it’s been a while” 

…where did all this deep stuff come from?

anonymous asked:

Hey :) love love love your blog! I was wondering about the graphics you mentioned.. I would love it if you did a whole post on how to make them, I'm so lost in that area haha.. thanks a million

oh man oh man oh man okay. first, thank you so much for the compliment, it means so much to me that you like my blog, thank you bby <3 and okayyy let’s do this. oh boy. alright anon, i’m not a professional or all that good by any means and there are other amazing graphists that make amazing graphics but i got you, so welcome to-

let’s begin:

okay i use photoshop to edit my graphics but you don’t need to ok??

Size:

  • so when you make a graphic, you need to specify your image size.
  • tumblr photos (like the one i have above) has a horizontal length of 500 pixels 
  • so your image should be 500 x a number. the one i have above is 500 x 200 pixels. you can make it 500 x 300, 500 x 700, whatever your heart desires.
  • facebook timeline covers are 815 x 315 pixels, instagram photos are 500 x 500 (but they’ve changed so you can have any size)

Background:

  • so anon! i’m assuming you want to make graphics like the ones i’ve made before, right? (bc i dabble in lots of different graphic editing there’s a lot more different types of graphics but i think the one we want rn is like the one above)
  • so you should just start with a solid colored background
    • usually, light, pastel colors look the best. 
    • when you go dark, unless you go navy blue dark or some variant of gray or black, the background usually looks hard to look at and is less pleasing to the eye.
  • so yeah! solid, light colored backgrounds work just fine.
  • but you can hit that up with some Patterns
    • yah so you can add patterns to your background if you wanna spice things up a bit ey (waggles eyebrows)
    • either go black, white, lgiht gray or go home when you do patterns. don’t try and mix up colors for patterns for backgrounds 
      • unless you’re super super sure that your pattern will look ok
    • you can make horizontal lines, vertical lines, diagonal lines, crossed, etc. for your patterns and add them to your background!
    • do not make the patterns too bold or complicated or put too much, because the patterns on your background should be subtle. 
    • so yup, you can do things like i did in the header for this post! gray diagonal dotted lines. 

Text / Fonts

  • so next step is fonts or your text or whatever it is that you want to say in your graphic
  • typography and text is a whole thing in itself and you could write like, two hundred posts about it and not be done, but i’ll try my best to pass on a quick tuto for this
  • so first choose a text color that compliments your background. here this usually involves color coordination, but you can go by a few rules
    • and you can make cool text effects. for example make a few copies of your text and change the color just a shade lighter or change the color just a tad and kinda move the texts behind each other so they diagonally overlap to get a hella cool bg.
    • if you have a light / pastel bg
      • you can either do colors that are right next to what your bg color is (pink and white and orange, red and purple, remember the rainbow: ROY G BIV)
      • go with white. white is always an option. always looks hella good.
      • you can go opposite the color of your bg, so pink and blue, purple and yellow, etc.)
    • if you have a white bg:
      • you can work with any color, really, and it’ll look really nice!
      • go gray or black to get a more clean and crisp look.
        • special tip: to make your text pop but not look tacky, don’t go complete black. go very dark gray or just gray and the color makes a world of difference!
      • if you’re going to work with multiple colors, just remember to follow the color rules and u know what if u don’t know the color rules or just are too lazy just eyeball it
      • (no that’s not what i do with every. single. graphic i make hahaahaa h  aa (laughs nervously))
    • if you have a darker bg:
      • once again use white as ur text color
      • or just super light colors like sakura-color pink or something
  • then you’re going to choose a font
    • fonts are so darned complicated ugh ugh ug H
    • but okay. you can go on google and look up font tutorials to really get into the whole font thing but here’s a super basic rundown on fonts
    • use the basic, common fonts (but not comic sans please or i will poke you in the eyeball om g). here are the basics I use
      • vijaya, times new roman, arial (u can go all caps and get a super aesthetic thing)
    • use uniform, clean fonts (idk what to call these, i should know but wtv)
      • slim joe, big john, basic title font, brain flower, bebas, znikomit
      • whaTEVER idk these are the ones i can think of off the top of my head ok
    • use cool handwritten fonts
      • selima, levibrush, peach sundress, satisfaction
      • you can look on creativemarket in fonts to find more free pretty handwritten fonts
    • use weird but amazing fonts
      • fyi: never go overboard with the more complicated fonts never ever bc it only makes your graphic look yucky 
      • wolf in the city, men in black, franks, easy going stroke, a series of unfortunate events, romangridcaps
    • once again, there are rules to making different fonts and different styles go together, but once again, i say just eyeball it if it gets too complicated. 
    • i usually just slap a handwritten or cool font and add a preinstalled normal font to go w/ it in a smaller sized font

Shapes and Other Things 

  • you can then add different things and shapes to add extra dazzle to your edit
  • just add stuff
  • i don’t really know what to say for these shapes bc um honestly i don’t have a guide for doing this. i usually just randomly do whatever looks good to me.
  • squares, circles, and triangles are super cool though. you can experiment and play around and see what looks good to you.
  • also look on google for images that end with .png because those will have transparent bgs and are easy to use as shapes and stuff

Color Schemes / Palettes

  • i am way too lazy to explain all the color things but in general
    • go either similar or go opposite
    • light shades or colors go with light shades (pastel yellow with pstel orange) or color or light shades go with dark shades (dark dark gray with pastel pink)
    • colors go with colors right next to them on the spectrum (orange and yellow, purple and red, blue and green) or else opposite (red or orange with blue, purple and yellow)
    • and of course, white, gray, or black go with anything!
    • to look for nice color palettes to choose colors that go well together

umm so i don’t know what else to put on here. i’ll add stuff if i remember though. this was a super basic rundown on making a graphic, so sorry about not being able to answer your question more thoroughly, anon!!! 

but please, message me again if you have a more specific question like how i made my header for this post or how i made my minimalist edit, my ‘drink water’ edit, or my iphone wallpapers because i can answer your question if i know what type of graphic you want!!!

happy editing!! xoxo

My Pitch for how to rewrite Arrow.

So, a while back, after me and my brother had a chin-wagging session on why Arrow was a legitimately terrible show after Season 2, I decided to do a little think piece: say I was tasked with rebooting Arrow a couple of years down the line. How would I do it? What would I change (a lot)? What would I keep the same (not a lot)? I decided to sit down and write out a basic outline for a rewritten Arrow Season 1.

…two weeks, 2000+ words and another basic outline for Season 2 later, I am pleased to present my pitch for Arrow Season 1 under the cut to anyone who might give a shit.

WARNINGS for: discussion of violence, mental health and swearing.

first of all thank you sooooo much for looking at my trash blog.

YES THANK GOD YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PERSON I THINK EVERY SINGLE ONE IN THIS FANDOM IS BEYOND PISSED BY THE WELLINGTON CURSE

the “wellington curse” is used to talk about some mysterical, ridiculous, highly dubious incidents of HarryAndLouis being together and unfortunately seen by people. however, (apparently controlled by someone), all photos or videos that go leaked seems to be taken by a Nokia being dumped into the sea bitten by sharks then burned dry with fire. eveything BLURRY and UNCLEAR. and we call this a “curse” because every single fucking Harry and Louis are together something like this happen. All. The. Fucking. Time. What. THe. FuCK.

it’s called “wellington” because the whole fiasco originated in wellington.

and when you hear people saying “investigate it”, it means we’re gonna dig deep and find out everything about one incident.

so here we go.

back in february in 2012, the first wellington incident happened in a bar. (click on the link and there’s the shite video)

they are caught on (shitty) video, seems like kissing or have any form of intimacy going on lol

louis is leaning in as harry also simultaneously pulling him towards himself. then harry sorta holds him from behind and goes in for his neck. 

then idk what louis is doing (bc he’s drunk outta his mind), seems like he’s going in for something or idk, dancing?

here’s an enhanced gif of harry like, biting/kissing/idk into loui’s neck

very unclear

i mean, like, there are soooo many people around???? and they have so many phones????? why is this taken by a potato??????

weird.

(that is meant for a sarcastic tone)


TWO MONTHS LATER again in wellington, harry and louis are seem together in a cafe with gemma and keith.

here are some clearer pics that i managed to find. they are leaked WAYYYY after when the incident first happened.

welliNGTON CURSE IS REAL

yet apparently,

i rePEAT IT IS REAAALLLLLL

and then of course, the internet started freaking out at about 2:30, then that evening harry tweets this

and aND AND!!! it’s not over.

here is another thing that happened in wellington. the third wellington incident. (click the link for video)

actually, DO watch the video, you’ll see everything so i won’t copy what is said here as it’s not that important. but just so you see, every time in wellington, magical SHIT happens.


and then it’s not only wellington, the curse spreads.

first allow me to introduce you to tHIS.

hOLDING HANDS?????!!!!!

????????

everythign is blurry????

anD??????

noW WHAT????

cAN SB FUCKING EXPLAIN?????

how about tHIS SHIT?????

tHIS??????!!!!!!

mind you, here’s just a few that i find significant, the Wellington Curse happened more times than you imagine. 

f king pissed.

when H&L has come out, they better explain every about all these mysteries.

haha here’s drunk louis again


and tHEN, ONE MAGICAL DAYYYYY. the great Ian McKellen confronted them on tHE SHOW!!!!!!!! (i think you all know when is this so…)

so apparently Harry and Louis didn’t go to the Hobbit premier, and they were in a bar or together in their house, somewhere, you see.

Sir Ian diD A THING

and theN HAZZA’S REACTION OMFG

diD YOU SEE THAT NERVOUS FLICK IN HIS EYES AND HOW HIS LIPS TWEAKED OMFG

okay now they’re apparently sooooo “uncomfortable”

and then Sir Ian did this thing with his hand, to mimick some drink and smoking.

hahAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHA Harry and Louis you are not going anywhere hAHAHAHAHAHHAH

okay, so, there is it!!! the Wellington Curse and now let’s investigate some more.

when iPhones do not turn into a potato is the time i rISE FROM ME ASHES.

It was such a cold and dark night. You couldn’t say it was raining because it wasn’t, it was the fucking universal flood itself. Which made even better the fact that you had forgotten your umbrella at home. As you walked out of the supermarket with no bags you were looking for a dry path to get to your car just to confirm there was none. 

You took a deep breath and started running under the rain. When you were finally in front of the car door you cursed for not looking for your keys before leaving your dry spot at the super. You checked your purse and your pockets a million times but they were not there. You cursed once more and hit your car window which made you curious to look inside. You hit it again when you found out you had left your keys inside.

At the exact moment you were going to call your insurence service for some help to get out of that mess you saw a slim figure walking lazily towards you. It got your full attention immediately when you saw whoever it was had no umbrella and no jacket either, even more soaked than you were.

Random Asks

Posting a bunch of asks like this because I’m so bad at replying and they just keep piling up. Most of these are anon, some are not. Sorry for not replying straight to you but a lot of them are kinda old so you probably forgot you wrote me anyway.


-   Do you do commissions?’

-   Love love love your style! Do you ever do commissions?

Nope, sorry, I’m too busy for commissions! I might do some in the future but I don’t really plan on it. we’ll see what happens.

-   How do you skan your sketchbook drawings? Ps I LOVE YOUR STYLE OD DRAWING ITS SO AMAZING 💕

ok, I don’t understand this question. I put my sketchbook in a scanner and it scans? usually at 300 or 600 dpi. and then I use “levels” in photoshop to adjust the white/black ratio, is this… what you wanted to know?

-   can we use your art as icons if we give credit? its very cute i love your art so much!

yeah sure! I feel a bit weird if ppl use my self-portraits (like my ootd drawings) for icons though. just because, that’s me. but if you credit it’s all good I guess, ha.

-   Hi sorry to bother you but I was wondering how do you go about drawing? Do you use any kind of guidelines? I would really appreciate if you could give an example but you don’t have to if it’s too much. I love your style by the way<3

-   You’re art is so nice and awesome! Please, will you teach me how to art?

I’m not a tutorial kind of artist, sorry! and I think my technique is pretty regular too. I sketch my drawings out in coloured pencils and then I ink on top of that. I don’t have any examples on how I sketch but I try to capture the whole thing before getting into details…?  @veesdumpingrounds has some good art tutorials. as does Norman Lemay @grizandnorm

Advice for Studying Abroad in France

This is mostly targeted towards Americans (as I’m an American who studied abroad in France though much of this advice can be universal)

Two years ago, I had the best semester of my life studying abroad in Aix-en-Provence, Fr. I’ve compiled a list of things I learned throughout the whole trip and hopefully they will help you out, whether you’ll be there for a week or a year. Hold on tight because this post is a long one.

Preparing for your trip

Prescriptions: Call your health insurance company and get approved for an advance of a 90 day supply of whatever prescriptions you’re on. Odds are you will not be able to easily refill abroad so it’s best to take a long-term supply with you. 

Banking: Now that the days of travelers checks are over, you’ll need to figure out how you will be handling your money while abroad. Swiping a credit or debit card in another currency will result in a currency exchange fee for every swipe and every ATM withdrawal will not only have the exchange fee, but also the fee for using an ATM that is not affiliated with your bank. Certain banks have international locations/affiliates, find out who has locations in the area you will be in and talk to a bank representative about setting up a simple account so you can avoid losing money unnecessarily. 
Bank of America has an agreement with BNP and Barclays, HSBC say’s it’s “banking globally” but it’s mostly business banking and not for individual accounts. 

Applying for your visa: If you’re in a position like me, the closest consulate is 9 and a half hours away so getting everything right is critical. Bring a ridiculous number of copies of all the documents they require, the consulate will not print or photocopy anything for you but they will recycle extras so better to be on the safe side. Paperclip all you papers together and put them in a manila envelope so nothing falls out. Double, no triple check you have everything because the consulate gets busy in the summer as people prepare for trips and it’s hard to get a second chance. 

Process Documents ASAP: If your trip is anything like mine, you will have to be accepted into your study abroad school, present the acceptance and a processing fee to Campus France so that you can be allowed to pay for your visa. It’s dumb and annoying and I’m sorry but there’s no way around it. Because there’s so much document processing, start the process immediately. If you don’t even have a passport, the whole thing will take two to three months to get the passport, CampusFrance and visa. 

Course Credit Approval: If you are responsible for the choice of courses and their transfer credit equivalents, do this before you go abroad instead of after. Getting transcripts is a hassle, don’t make it worse by risking the chance that your school won’t even accept some of the credits. 

Choosing your classes: Keep in mind that when studying abroad, the emphasis is on the abroad. Don’t try to give yourself the same courseload you would back at home. Employers and Universities are fully aware that studying abroad is less about the studying and they don’t care. Give yourself a schedule that will allow you plenty of free time to explore and travel because that’s what this is all about anyway, being able to live in a totally new environment and not being scared to step out of your comfort zone.

Packing your bags

Pack light and leave room: Fashion in France is way different than in the United States in the sense that they have the tendency to own a few good items that can be worn different ways rather than having many lower quality items. Pack a bag that’s too large, that way you’ll have room for the things you buy abroad and won’t have to face a midnight purge the night before your flight home. Bring a few staple items, enough for about 10 days. Leave the t-shirts and leggings behind. A chef who moved from San Francisco to Paris said it best when it comes to Parisian clothing 

“I knew I was Parisian not when I arrived in Paris, or when I got annoyed with tourists, no, it was when I changed out of my pyjamas into ironed, creased pants and a shirt just so I could take my trash out”

 Here are some things you should make sure to include in your luggage:

  • 1-2 active outfits for days when you get the chance to hike, play sports or even long travel days
  • 1 nice outfit:  a good dress/shirt and slacks if you’re a dude. This is in the event that a nice dinner or event is organized for you
  • 1 pair of nice shoes to go with that nice outfit you brought
  • 1 bathing suit
  • 2-3 pairs of jeans. Shorts aren’t too common in France, bring a couple pairs of jeans, you’ll notice people wear them even in the summer as it doesn’t get nearly as hot in France as it does in some parts of the USA. 
  • A few shirts/blouses
  • A scarf or two-the French love scarves, even the boys
  • 1-2 cardigans/jackets
  • 1 pair of crappy flip flops for the beach if you’re near one and for walking around a hostel/showering in a hostel
  • 1 pair of boots if you’ll be there in the winter/rainy season

This isn’t a complete list, but I think it’s a good start. Obviously you tweak it as much as you need depending on your style. 

Clothes aren’t the only thing you’ll bring, make sure you also have these items in your luggage

  • a journal, even if you don’t journal, start. It’s so much fun to read through old travel journals and relive some of those fun memories
  • adaptors for your electronics. You probably won’t need more than 2
  • travel-size toiletries for traveling while you’re abroad-or if you have a 6 hour layover in Munich and you’ve already been flying for 15 hours and desperately want to brush your teeth.
  • 1 box of compact tampons-the variety kind or whatever size you need. Most tampons in France are non-applicator and idk about you but that’s just uncomfortable. Just take them out of the box and put them in a bag or scatter them around your luggage to save space. Better yet, if you’re on birth control, certain types allow you to skip your period so if that’s a route you want to take, contact your doctor and see if that’s a safe option for you.
  • deodorant: Most deodorant in Europe is the spray on kind and is usually just deodorant and not antiperspirant, this is one of the few toiletries that I would advise bringing. You can buy toothpaste, shampoo, soap etc while you’re there so don’t worry about packing those.
  • a planner. It will safe your life when organizing trips.
  • A scan-proof wallet/purse. This is for protection against pickpockets with scanners. They don’t need to steal your card anymore, they can discreetly hold up a device that takes your information through your wallet or purse unless you have one that prevents this. 
  • A luggage scale. On your way home you’re going to be tired and distressed from packing and leaving all these cool places and people behind. Don’t add to your stress by having an overweight bag, have a scale and use it to keep your weights under 50 lbs. 
  • A gift for your host family. It should be somewhat representative of your hometown/region. I’m from Kansas so I brought my host mom a wine glass and tea towel that had sunflowers on it (little did I know Provence was also known for sunflowers but w/e). 
  • One book or magazine in your native language. If you are doing the trip as a means of learning/improving a foreign language you will be exhausted by the end of the day. It’s insane how tiring immersion is for the first few weeks. One treat you can give yourself is having one book or magazine in your native language. I can’t tell you how many times I read about Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress but I can tell you it was nice to have just a moment of English at the end of a long day.

Once you are abroad…

Prepare to be treated unfairly. You’re the American, to them, you represent all of America which means you represent a country where a candidate named “Deez nutz” pulled and Donald Trump is a presidential nominee. Always be polite, and take everything with a grain of salt. 

Stay away from Americans: It is so easy to stick with other Americans during your trip. It’s comforting and familiar but that’s not what you’re there for. Challenge yourself to be totally immersed by associating with French people. 

It’s hard to make Friends in France: They have different views about friendship. In the United States, we make friends quickly but they can be dropped quickly too. In France, friendship takes a long time to form but once it is formed, it lasts forever. Don’t be discouraged if it seems like people you thought were good friends seem distant from you. It’s not being rude, it’s just how they treat friendship.

Don’t buy water at a restaurant. It’s not free. Be French, drink wine. 

Public restrooms don’t exist. Sure, there are some little box things in tourist areas where you can pay a euro to pee but those are weird and gross. Just learn to hold it because you can’t just walk into a grocery store or restaurant and expect to find a restroom. If it’s an emergency, American fast food restaurants are your best bet though you may have to pay like 10 cents to use those. 

Save money for experiences. Sure going out is fun but I promise it’s not the end of the world if you skip a night or two of clubbing so you can save money for a nice meal. A nice, expensive meal is way more memorable than a night where you don’t remember what happened from 1:00 AM-4:00 AM.

Going out abroad

Go out with a group of people. I repeat, GO OUT WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE. Never go out alone. You are vulnerable, you are the friendly, trusting American. People will take advantage of that. Stick with your group the entire night. If you’re a boy, make sure you see any girls you were with go into their apartments before you leave for yours. 

French men are fiends. The general idea is that American girls are easy. They will hound you in a club, another reason why you need to always be with a group.

No doesn’t really mean no. That whole “fiend” thing? I’m serious about that. No doesn’t mean no to French men, it just means try again. The chase is what they’re about. They’ll follow you around the bar all night unless someone else steps in. I’m being serious, one time, a guy followed me out of a bar, down a street that was packed full of people and to my group of friends. He didn’t believe that I had a boyfriend/probs didn’t care until one of the guys I was with lied to him and told him he was my boyfriend, and that wasn’t even enough. I had to make out with this friend in front of my French admirer and even then, it took him about 5 more minutes to leave. The lesson here is, don’t even respond to them. They’ll tell you you’re beautiful, they’ll start a seemingly innocent conversation but there’s always a motive and they’re very determined. 

Don’t be the loud, drunk American. We have a very drunk friendly culture here in America. If someone has had too much, we’ll help them out, we’ll call an uber or set them up on the couch to sleep it off. Be sure to be responsible while you drink and don’t expect strangers to help you out. They’ll leave you in a bush across the street (this happened to one of my classmates). 

Be SUPER careful about drugs. Maybe you like to smoke, maybe you’re a fan of clubbing with your friend Molly. Before you get crazy, be aware of the laws. Some places are insanely strict about drugs while others are more lax. The last thing you want is to get caught and face a judge that hates Americans. Also, if you’re buying from anyone, don’t. Not unless you know them extremely well and have no reason not to trust them. While I was visiting Amsterdam there was a problem with dealers giving people heroin and saying it was Molly. 

Traveling while abroad

Take buses and trains. Sure flights are quicker but they’re more expensive. Trains and buses are great ways to travel in Europe and they’re way cheap. 

Hit up the grocery stores. Don’t put yourself in a position to have to eat out for every meal, that really adds up. Pick a night or two during your little excursion to eat out and use grocery stores for the rest.

Ask locals where to eat. TripAdvisor is good but it’s heavily influenced by American reviews and tourist locations. Ask people in the bus/train stations, people working at your hostel or even someone on the street where to go to get a good meal. People love showing off their country and will be happy to recommend a bomb place. 

Print two copies of tickets if you can. This means any bus/train tickets you order online or even museum/sightseeing tickets. Don’t be like me and leave your Parc Guel ticket in the hostel and have to sit on a bench for an hour while your friends see an amazing work of art. 

Only bring a backpack when traveling. Wheeling luggage through metros is a hassle and makes you a target for pickpocketing. 

Don’t think you have to go where everyone else is going. If you’re comfortable traveling alone, do it. Some of my best times abroad were the days I just said “fuck it“ and hopped on a bus to another city. Be extra careful though and only do this if you feel comfortable.

If anyone looks sketchy, they are. Hindsight is 20/20 and you don’t want to find out too late that the shady looking girl on the metro just swiped your wallet. We’re not used to pickpockets in the US so you have to be extra careful while abroad. Don’t cause a scene-speaking loudly in English on the metro, carry a fanny pack and wear socks+berks. We know what tourists look like, don’t bring attention to yourself by looking/acting like one because you will be targeted. 

Keep your important things in a place where pick pockets can’t get them. That means also separating things. Spread the important things out so that if a pick pocket does get something, they won’t get everything.

Make an effort to know how to say a few things in the language of the country you are going to (if you don’t already speak that language). People from the Czech Republic know that not everyone speaks Czech but it’s a nice gesture if you give them a little dobry den before you ask for help, they’ll probably be even more helpful to you if you do!

Coming Home

That luggage scale I told you to pack will save your life.

Put all your heavy items in your carry-on since it does not have weight restrictions. That way you can fit more things in your checked luggage and keep it under weight.

Wrap breakable things up in clothes and make sure they are tightly packed in your suitcase. If you’re extra worried they’ll break and they are things you can bring onto the plane (i.e. not liquids) then put them in your carry-on if you can. 

Leave behind anything you don’t care about to make room for the stuff you bought abroad. You can give them to your school if they’re things you bought just for the trip and now some other future student can use them. If you have a terrible host mom like I did, just leave them in her house so she can deal with them.

American customs takes forever, I know you’re ready to be home but just anticipate standing in line and rechecking your bag.

Once you’re home, people will want to hear all about your trip and I know you’re excited to tell the stories. You have about a month or so to just word-vomit on people. After that, no one cares and would actually prefer it if you kept your mouth shut. Stories beginning with “Well, when I was in France…” Get really old for people who haven’t been able to study abroad. If you can’t keep your mouth shut, find other people who are recently back from abroad because you’ll understand each others pain in just wanting to word vomit every single story.

That’s all I can think of for now. Add on any of your own and message me any questions you might have! I’m happy to help :)
