my alters are so different from me

Some Questions to Ask When Things Go Wrong

Ask yourself:

1. Is this something I should take seriously and try to put right; is it something that is worth working on, and investing more energy on?

2. How much is my fault? Is it something I can change further down the road?

3. How much is outside my control; will anything I do really alter the situation or make a lasting difference?

5. Have I done everything I possibly can? Have I tried and exhausted all possible options?

6. Is it something I should put behind me, and decide to walk away from?

7. Who else has gone through a similar experience, or had this happen to them? Who can I talk to who will understand, and give me valuable help and advice?

8. What can I learn from this experience?

9. How can I build myself up again, so I have the needed strength to go forward in my life?

10. What small steps can I take to enhance my self-esteem?

How Si Acts in all 4 Positions

Dominant Si (ISXJ: I know how this works, how it was last week, and how I want it to be in the future. If knitting in that way helped the other person to create that scarf, I feel sure that I can do the same thing by learning the same stitch. I feel happiest when I hold tight to the things that are truly important and lasting in life, such as family, friends, and often, my faith. I find that interesting, but it doesn’t match my memories of what happened. Can you give me more details, so I can decide whether or not to accept it? I know if something or someone is different from how they used to be, and can tell you exactly what has altered. I highly value my past experiences, and find it hard to forget or move past things. I really love participating in local events, family traditions, and cultural things, because it makes me feel like I am part of a living past. I enjoy routine and like things to be predictable.

Auxiliary Si (ESXJ): The last time I tackled this project, using this technique worked, so I feel confident in my ability to succeed using the same technique. This restaurant is laid out different than it was the last time I was here; those tables were on the patio, and they had red curtains, not green. I’m happy to provide you with the details of why I am making this decision. I recognize this street, so I know where to turn! This holiday is meaningful to me, because it allows me to connect to my family or my culture. I’m disappointed if we can’t celebrate it together every year. If we’re going to do this project, let’s do research to see how others have done it before we start. I like to reflect on my own past experiences when making decisions in the present, and believe I can learn from others’ mistakes.

Tertiary Si (INXP): I love to revisit things that have given me joy in the past. Going to the same museums, watching the same favorite old movies, and thinking about an old idea is a lot of fun for me. I’d actually rather go to the tea shop again than try out a new hot spot. I find history interesting. Oh, do you want to know everything I learned about Ancient Egypt / the Klingon Conflict? I have all the details right here! I have a box of Star Wars memorabilia in my closet.  Oh, I remember that smell… this tastes like my grandmother’s cookies… no, that’s not how “they’re” is spelled. I like familiar things and when I am upset, they comfort me.

Inferior Si (ENXP): I haven’t the faintest idea where that paper went. I had it five minutes ago. No, I didn’t remember that it’s your birthday… but I wanted to remember! I did a bunch of research on the Tudor period, but I need to dig up my notes for the details. I don’t want to talk about the past; it hurts too much. Show me how you did it, and then I’ll try it. I’m not a big fan of Christmas family gatherings, but I kind of miss the wonder of Christmas as a child. Don’t tell anyone, but sometimes I long for a normal life and a white picket fence. How… how did I remember the name of that fictional character in the cartoon I used to watch when I was a kid? That’s random!

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I was happily scrolling through my newsfeed and saw this utter bullshit. I was then disgusted to see that literally thousands of mindless assholes had commented on it without any thought of it’s validity.
How is it that so many people couldn’t see how incredibly poorly this image was altered?? I mean, the first thing that tipped me off was the ridiculous font! Not to mention the fact that there was no citation whatsoever for the claims made in the caption.
It literally took me less than a minute to find the original image on Google, as well as one from a different angle confirming it’s validity.
Nevermind the fact that Lincoln was racist, despite his role in the eventual end of American enslavement of black people; these hatemongering assholes will literally try any dirty trick to discredit black citizens fighting for equality, respect and dignity.

There’s wonderful highs and there’s wonderful lows. It’s been quite a change for me personally. I’m very lucky in the support I have from Catherine. She’s an amazing mother and a fantastic wife. But I’ve struggled at times. The alteration from being a single independent man to going into marriage and then having children is life changing. I adore my children very much and I’ve learnt a lot about myself and about family just from having my own children. It’s amazing how much you pick up from just in those moments. George is a right little rascal sometimes, he keeps me on my toes, but he’s a sweet boy. And Charlotte, well, bear in mind I hadn’t had a sister, so having a daughter is a very different dynamic. So I’m learning about having a daughter and having a girl in the family. It’s wonderful, it’s fantastic. You gotta make time for family. It’s very important.

Even if it were possible to cast my horoscope in this one life, and to make an accurate prediction about my future, it would not be possible to ‘show’ it to me because as soon as I saw it my future would change by definition. This is why Werner Heisenberg’s adaptation of the Hays Office—the so-called principle of uncertainty whereby the act of measuring something has the effect of altering the measurement—is of such importance. In my case the difference is often made by publicity. For example, and to boast of one of my few virtues, I used to derive pleasure from giving my time to bright young people who showed promise as writers and who asked for my help. Then some profile of me quoted someone who disclosed that I liked to do this. Then it became something widely said of me, whereupon it became almost impossible for me to go on doing it, because I started to receive far more requests than I could respond to, let alone satisfy. Perception modifies reality: when I abandoned the smoking habit of more than three decades I was given a supposedly helpful pill called Wellbutrin. But as soon as I discovered that this was the brand name for an antidepressant, I tossed the bottle away. There may be successful methods for overcoming the blues but for me they cannot include a capsule that says: 'Fool yourself into happiness, while pretending not to do so.’ I should actually want my mind to be strong enough to circumvent such a trick.

Selfie Reality

Sensory experiment by Matt Bierner combines Cardboard VR headset and selfie stick camera to experience surroundings in a different way:

What of the selfie stick? A fine recording device to be sure, albeit one that seems to draw more than its fair share of derision and scorn. But it could be so much more! So recently, I put together a simple device that allows me to experience the world through my selfie stick.

This experiment continues my exploration of what I’m calling modded reality: using technology to alter and remix one’s sensory experiences. The device used here is simple – it streams video from a camera mounted on a selfie stick to a VR headset – yet it is extremely fun to play around with, more so than any of my previous experiments. Imagine a video game style camera, but for real life. Top-down, over-the-shoulder, and third-person views are all possible, along with plenty of others.

Hey hey hey

Okay guys so from all the gossip that I’ve heard and from all the trailers and information we’ve been given, Adventure Tri is going to be about some event occurring that alters the past which affects the present. By the looks of it, this means that Adventure 02 is completely out the window, never even happened. So my question to you is, what are you excited for that might be different, what are mad about that might have changed? Also what are you questions are you hoping to be answered or who are who hoping to see again? You can send me and ask or reblog this with your answer. These won’t technically be confessions, but i will post EVERY SINGLE ONE. NO MATTER WHAT THEY’RE ABOUT.

Recreate The Look: Strapless Peplum Top & High Split Long Skirt

Last night we shared this photo of Marrgee via instagram & facebook ,after that many of you message us to find out where she bought her dress from and if it’s still available.

Unfortunately it isn’t available in any stores , so this got me thinking why not recreate this look?!?!

While browsing the web I found two different styles of peplum tops , you can see them here & here. If you do purchase one of these tops you can always change the style into a strapless by getting it altered . I also found a gold plated belt, but the hardest of them all was finding a high split skirt.

If you are not interested in my findings above you can also get it custom made by a designer in your area .

Let me know here if you like what I found and if you would recreate this look ?!?!

(It weirds some folks out when I draw in my regular style instead of my cartoon one…^^;;;;)

Something I sat down and drew in a new program I got as an early xmas present from my friend/coworker. It’s called “Black Ink”. Very different from what I’m used to with Paint Tool SAI, but I like it so far.

Once Upon A Time... - (AU) Part 2

This is a fairytale!Calum AU based on “Cinderella”! This was previously published on a different blog, but I have since edited and altered it to fit the 5sos fandom. Keep an eye out for the other boys stories!

“Where. Is. My. Crown.” It wasn’t phrased as a question, and you had honestly never seen so much menace in a five year olds face in your life. That was saying something, because you had attended your share of pre-contest meltdowns.

“Go get the crown.” Jennifer snapped at me from the driver’s side where she was programming the GPS. You sighed, hopping down from the car and walking back towards the house. You resented your step monster almost as much as you resented your father for making you participate in the sugar induced lunacy that was a toddler beauty pageant. You suspected that he felt that spending time with her would make up for how much he was gone, and bring you closer together. It did neither of those things.

Well, here it is at last! My little comic project for this semester, and man, did I have a blast! :D

When I showed my teacher Shinocchi’s anthology (which I hope you managed to get a copy), he told me: “Then… I’m giving you the chance to draw one of its stories.”. Asking Shino for any special recommendation, she said “Voice” without hesitation.

And now, some things you should be aware of:

  1. I wasn’t allowed to use copyrighted characters. I had to use different names and alter their designs, but the characters are essentially Aoba and Noiz from DRAMAtical Murder.
  2. The story had to occur in the city I live in (Santiago de Chile). So if you’re wondering about the BGs I used, they’re from there.
  3. I won’t be selling this manga any time soon, if ever. I just finished my semester and I don’t have the currency for mass production at the moment. So far, only Shino herself will receive a copy + extras.

And finally, all my thanks go to @shinocchi for letting me use her story, which you should go and read ASAP here. Hope you like it, girl! ;3

Red Carpet: Angelina Jolie is a Gothic Beauty


Visit Maleficent Movie Homepage
Book Maleficent Cinema Tickets

Maleficent’s star Angelina Jolie is known for her love of black, it is rare that she steps away from the dark hue when on a red carpet, and her promo tour for Disney’s latest flick has been no different, she really has very much been channelling the Gothic glamour of her on-screen alter ego.

My favourite of her looks so far has to be the show-stopping custom-made Atelier Versace gown that she wore to the film’s launch event at Kensington Palace. Everything from the plunging v-neckline to the front and back, the sheer long sleeves and the Swarovski crystals embellishments made this a striking look.

Trust me, no one could take their eyes off her on the blue carpet – we were all completely captivated by her demure, gracious and charming personality as she did interviews and signed fans autographs. I am not going to lie but I was totally under Angie’s spell!!!

Her other looks for the press conferences have been a little more refined, but still very glamorous. In Paris the actress went for a black Ralph Lauren bustier and trouser look, this ensemble is tailored to perfection and Angelina looks incredible, also check out those custom Christian Louboutin with a sculpted heel – they are gorgeous.

Gothic glamour doesn’t have to be all black, all the time, and before the star jetted out of London she wore another Atelier Versace frock to the European press conference, a gorgeous white cocktail dress featuring painted imagery of ravens, which perfectly ties in with the fantastical movie. The detail in this dress is just stunning and dramatic with the draping twisting out from her hip.

Which of Angelina’s looks is your favourite?

I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.

Isa 57:18 (KJV)

Redeeming Love //

Mourning and grief… what can I say? It’s a challenging topic to cover.

Let me give you some insight into my own dysfunction. My mind works on very narrow and straight paths. I like order and the opposite frustrates me. I think carefully about most things and often consider the outcome or many different options before investing any time, money or energy in whatever I approach. Good or bad.

Even towards death, I can tend to have a logical and cold approach to its inevitability. Managing my emotions via reason.

“We all die and there’s no escaping it!” is my familiar motto. “Better off reconciling rather than running from those facts that can not be altered” I can hear my head say.

But even with this not-so-warm approach I find that it doesn’t dull the sting and pain of severed relationship that death or loss causes. No matter how much logic and rationale I apply to it, the emotional ties seem to supersede and grief still infiltrates my emotions like a sneaky enemy trying to take down a fortified castle.

None of us can really escape the pang of grief when it comes to loss of any kind, however, there is One who redeems and comforts us in the face of it.

Whether you’ve lost a loved one to death or divorce, a business to bankruptcy or your innocence to abuse, God’s promise is to heal, lead and comfort you. Our challenge is to expose our raw emotions, our pain and hurts, to His love.

That’s why Proverbs 3 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” because your raw and aching heart wants to protect itself, not expose itself. But like exposing a fresh burn to running cool water, trusting your wounded emotions to God will refresh them and give you new hope.

None of us is exempt from grief in this life, but we have free access to His treasury, fully stocked with hope, overflowing with faith and crammed tight with love.

His love will redeem and comfort you.

Special Offer: Prototype Dolls and Marik!

I’ve decided to offer two of my original Beamie Style dolls for sale!

Please note that at this time I cannot take any more custom orders to be ready FOR Dec. 25th, but I can sure take custom orders for anytime after!

So The Alter series is currently on hiatus. I’m using a similar plot for a screenplay I’m writing for a class and the last thing I need is my professor emailing me and saying I plagiarized from tumblr.

There are significant differences and obviously the format of a screenplay is not the same as the format of a fiction piece, but I really don’t wanna take the chance on that.

I apologize to anyone who follows that series! I promise I’ll finish it once this term is over :(

anonymous asked:

hi idk if ypu can help me but im having trouble figuring out if something is related to bpd. i cannot remember anything except traumatising moments before two years ago. i can remember somethings as stories but not actually experiencing them. when i see videos or pictures of my younger self, it feels like a different person- like an intruder. someone mentioned it could be did, like an alter but i dont have blackouts about recent events, only those from over two years ago. anything you can help?

it’s common to have memory problems when you have trauma and common to have a fixation on your trauma but i don’t know much other than that, sorry! i have problems remembering my trauma and my therapist was going to help me remember to work through it but i chose not to. so maybe a therapist can help you regain your memories. sorry i can’t be of more help! but i’d recommend getting help from a professional if possible

chaos-doom-discord  asked:

My, aren't /you/ a handsome sight for sore eyes... {{forgive me}}

“And for every other type of eye besides! We both are. And you must be at least the 5th or 6th Discord I’ve met so far. Or somewhere around there, I can’t bother to keep track. So, what makes you different from the others, hmm? What makes you stand out amongst all our handsome alters?”

re edit

everything didn’t happen for a reason (imo) but i do think so many things reoccur that were thought provoking enough to make us want to draw meaning from whatevers going on. 

I’ve found myself in the same positions, following unhealthy patterns over time that if anything mean I should alter my actions rather than sit blaming them on some divine path or being who has “evidently” created my fate like I wasn’t fucking meant to be re-enacting a death row sentence since birth. I’ve started feeling differently about others and my interactions with people make me believe now that I shouldn’t take things too personally and to be more vocally direct when something has got me on the edge in order to resolve things a lot faster or they never change and I just did all this pre determined shit to myself.
