Crystal Tuesday

This week I am doing a stone that I use very frequently, that stone is Tibetan tektite.

Tibetan tektites are one of the most powerful stone to assist someone opening their energy channels, the problem with this is that if these stones are not used properly they could do more harm than good, which is why I am covering this stone.  This stone has a very powerful energy that should not be used by people starting out with crystals and energy work.  
Now let’s start by defining the tektites themselves.  Tektites are found in strewn fields, which are areas where meteorites from a fall are dispersed.  Tektites are what is produced when a large meteorite impacts, I call tektites meteorite babies for this reason.  



Tektites range varies on the Mohs hardness scale from 5 to 9.  
The textbook definition is “Tektite is the name given to a glassy material which is the result of an extra-terrestrial meteorite impact on the Earth’s surface.  The terrestrial material (rocks/sediment) at the impact site either melted, vaporized, or both and were ejected into the Earth’s atmosphere.  Subsequently, molten material re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere and cooled rapidly but scattering far from the original impact zone, which are known as “strewn fields”.  
The word Tektite itself comes from Greek “tektos” which means molten.  
There are 4 well known strewn fields on earth and each is home to its own specific type of tektite. The North American strewn field reaches from Georgia to Texas and is home of the Georgia Tektites and the Bediasite Tektites. The Moldavite strewn field is in Europe, The Ivory Coast strewn field is on the Ivory Coast and the Australasian strewn field reaches from southern Australia up to southern China.  But for this short bio blurb we are just focusing on Tibetan Tektite.



Tibetan Tektite come in many sizes but will always have little holes and scratches on the surface, giving it the gravel-like appearance it has.  
The frequency of Tibetan Tektite connects to all of one’s personal energy making them a very personal stone for the person who uses it, it aids the holder in their inner spiritual journey and aids in expansion of one’s consciousness to aid in acts such as divination, seeing, clairaudience, and more physic abilities.  
In most places where you buy Tibetan Tektite you will see a little bio on it saying that it even aids in “telepathy” because it focuses on opening someone’s energy field to higher power.  In fact, many people that are very bonded with one another, (best friends and partners usually) will sometimes bond their two tektite stones which aids in telepathy with one another.  I know of a married couple that did this and they do seem to communicate telepathically in a way, I would never try this because it is basically giving another person full access to your mind.  
Many people tie their tektite into a necklace to keep it on their person all the time to receive the full benefits.  This is especially true in many places where all tektites are considered scared like in Tibet.  



Witches and other occultists use tektite to help “cross-over” aka help aid astral projection and even lucid dreaming.  
This is a stone that must be cleansed often because of its high energy.
Once again I do not recommend this stone to beginners, but I do live this stone and would recommend it to others that do have experience working with higher vibration crystals.

Art Help: Figures

Because you asked, let’s talk about bodies now. I know some cartoonists like to just throw anatomy out the window altogether, which can be fun and creative, but I prefer to know what’s inside and behind the things I’m drawing, I like to know what constructs a body, including the human figure, so #1 advice would be to just do a lot of figure drawing when you can:

 It doesn’t even have to be 100% realistic all the time, just learn to do it properly. After a while, you’ll be able to whip up a body in whatever pose you want without references. I drew these two tutorial pages without checking references or anything, these are just blind doodles, which shows that practice and the knowledge of structure work wonders! (And that I probably should’ve checked out some muscle references afterall but ehh close enough.)

And now, onto how you can get creative with what you’ve learned.

As it is always, just the sheer shape of a character’s body can be an instant visual indicator of their personality. Use this wisely and strategically. Unconventionality can add to this too. (Toothpick arms on a round-bellied character can look quite comical. Or sometimes it’s just a nice change.) However, though that kind of stuff is a long way from realistic anatomy, I still prefer to always make up a core structure to a given character, however impossible their body may be biologically. This way you won’t have ill-proportioned characters, you won’t lose control over them, and you can pinpoint where their centre of gravity is, and so on. Learn to find the possibilities of breaking free from realism but limit this freedom so that your character still makes sense and doesn’t lose form like a melting pudding. Know how far they can bend, stretch, etc. This would be vital if you were to make the character move. Take this jumping sack, for example:

This was just some weight practice from a few of months ago, I only posted it on my other blog just because it wasn’t anything interesting, really. (Look at it go “woouummmpfh”. ^^) That’s why structure, joints and weights and centres of gravity matter. You can get creative and simplify bodies to whatever extent you feel like but I personally prefer to keep characters make sense - it’s a bit harder to make work but it pays off so much when they can be shaped more dynamically when the need arises!

That’s all, you can find tons of anatomy tutorials and references around the internet and, if you can’t get a chance to go to a firgure drawing class, I’d even suggest doing favours for your friends/family/boyfriends/girlfriends/mysterious neighbours in exchange for them posing for a couple of hours for you. (Or blackmail your crush into it and write in about how it went. Or, don’t take life advice from me and you’ll probably be fine…)

Hope this is helpful and, as always, have fun drawing!

Whose Line Is It Anyway, Secret. S10E08
(insp.)

This isn’t a customer thing, but more of “why some people should not be managing a restaurant” type thing.

So the place I work at just opened on the 5th and it’s been nothing but chaos so far. As one right now, they’ve lost my paycheck, under scheduled closing shift (which is what I work) so closers are there until three am on average, and also have some of the stupidest people as managers. One that I work with does a good job and keeps everyone in line but the other is just a straight up dumbass. The only thing he is good at is cleaning. He can’t manage people properly and resorts to yelling at the crew and demanding something gets done, even if it’s not possible at that exact second and then turning around and saying they’re being insubordinate when they say they can’t. We are expected to have things done in a short amount of time despite the average persons training being two weeks. I’ve been getting no sleep as I’m working and trying to do school work and they get mad at me for dosing off when we’re slow, despite knowing how late we’re there and what my class schedule is.


TD;LR: my bosses have no idea what the hell they are doing and I’ve gotten 7 hours of sleep in the past three days because of this.

Oh.

W-wow, that is a response.

So I drew something pretty personal, last night - and I’ve awoken to a lot of responses on the topic. I wasn’t expecting to do further discussion on this matter for a while, but the comic’s also seemed to have resonated with some folks.

I feel like I should clarify the situation on the latter two ceteria points in said comic. While still relevant now and then - they don’t apply as much, nowadays. I have friends (though struggle to maintain friendships at times). As a schoolkid, I did, too - but I did not understand how friendships worked, nor how to properly empathise. And that was a point of isolation and a great deal of frustration (I wasn’t the nicest kid, either. : P ). So, you don’t gotta worry on that front. At least, presently.

I think what’s given me the most melancholy about this is seeing all these people come forward, saying “This is me,” or “I relate to this.” I’ve seen a few extensive messages from folks that I’ll get back to, but for now - all I can really say is that I’m so, so sorry you struggled, or if you’re still struggling - and that I thank you for your kind support, and hope things are alright on your end.

You guys are really cool, is what I mean.

Thank you very much for sharing your experiences. While a lot of similar things may resonate, it’s true that everyone has their individual battles, and maybe individual ways of coping with them. Whatever you choose to do, I hope it helps you. I hope it’s healthy, and I hope it also helps you appreciate yourself in new ways.

Take care of yourselves, guys. Thank you. : )

I finished FE Awakening and oh boy.. It was quite something. I’ll just say again what I said about 2 hours into the game: I should have tried this series way sooner.

Well I’ll start enjoying it now! Also Lucina is my favorite. (I’m planning out a cosplay of her!)

Knowing Why This Happened Doesn’t Help

Before reading this, you should read a fanfic, Devil in the Details (How to Wrtie a Once Script). 

https://archiveofourown.org/works/5400038

Read it? Good. That story pretty much sums up what I think are the problems with Once. It looks like the writers toss out ideas and never get around to developing them properly before plopping them in scripts.

We now know what the train wreck that was once Rumbelle has been all about this season. They decided they wanted Belle to magically send her baby away. They needed a reason for this, so they decided Belle should be afraid of Rumple. Everything else that’s happened has been them building up to this point without ever bothering to develop the characters to a point where this made sense.

Now that we know what A&E were pushing towards all season, I expect they think we should be happy. Look! There was a reason for this! Look! Now it’s happened, we can forget about all that relationship trouble.

The problem is we can’t. 

They say different authors have different areas of focus. Some are all about the plot. Some are all about characters. Some want to discuss ideas or polish their poetic prose.

Rumbelle fans, by and large, have been in it for the characterization. We’ve been watching for the story of a flawed, wounded soul who learns he is worthy of love. We’ve been watching for the story of the woman who lived in a world where she was defined by her rank and her physical appearance who met a man who loved her for her courage, integrity, and intelligence.

But, A&E, as near as I can tell, just like stories about surprise twists. When character gets in the way of that, they throw it out the window. It’s not what they care about. I imagine they think they can patch this all up just by saying Belle and Rumple are over it and that that should be good enough.

It’s not. But, you know what’s even worse? Now that I know what they were trying to do, I can see how they could have done it. They could have spent time giving us reasons Belle was becoming afraid. She could be the one having dreams and visions, not Emma. The show could have put in the effort to convince us that bad things would happen to Baby Gold if she didn’t get him away from his father. This wouldn’t have to be an either/or choice, with Belle siding with her son or her husband. What if she saw a future where her son became a villain and tried to kill his father? Or where his father had to kill him to stop him?

And give her a reason–any reason–why she doesn’t explain this to Rumple. In the end, she sends her child away to protect both of them. Would it have been so hard to write that story?

Instead, A&E turned Belle into a woman who spent most of this season yelling at her husband instead of listening to him. Rumple started out better. Then, he started down the tubes, too. 

And let’s not even talk about Belle getting help from the woman who murdered her stepson and gloated over her husband while he was on his deathbed.

I’m a Rumbelle fan. I’m not a season 6 fan. If A&E want me watching the show, they need to give me the characters I fell in love with, not this undead, brain-eating travesty that’s pretending to be them.

Yuta + 85

“The best thing in the world is waking up next to you.”

Word count: 470


“Yuta,just stop acting like this already” you sighed as you put the plates away.

“I will if you stop acting immature and talk this out with me like the adults we are” he said as he turned you around to face him.

“We’ve been talking for hours about this now!Aren’t you getting tired of it?!Because trust me,I am so tired of us fighting about small things like this” you yelled at him,holding your tears back.

You had been fighting for over 3 hours now about something that you can’t even remember anymore.

“You?Tired?What do you think about me?I’m always busy with my schedule and when I come home you’re still up,working and cleaning even though you should be asleep?!” he yelled back.

“Oh well I’m sorry that I still want to see my boyfriend before I go to sleep because I haven’t seen him properly for weeks now”

“Well what if I didn’t want to see you?What if I am too tired to speak?!”

Right when you heard those words,you had enough of it.You didn’t want to know if he meant it or not,you just wanted him to get out of your sight.It was also when Yuta realised what he just said and his eyes widened when he did.

“Babe,no,I didn’t me-” he started but you stopped him.You didn’t want to hear any of it.

“No,stop Yuta,I’ve heard enough.Get out” you whispered as the tears you held back finally started rolling down your cheek.You walked away to your room and layed down as you cried the night away.

~Morning~

The heavy rain outside is what woke you up.It perfectly described your mood.You decided to take a look at your phone to see what time it was but you felt someone holding you back.You turned around only to see Yuta laying down next to you,awake.

You were still slightly mad at him and decided to turn you back to him again.He sighed and turned your around to face him.You didn’t say anything and he was the first one to break the silence.

“Y/N..?Do you know what the best thing in the world is?” he asked quietly as he looked into your eyes.You wanted to look away but he was just too mesmirizing.

“No” you answered bluntly.

“Waking up next to you” he replied sweetly as he smiled at you.You gave up on being mad at him and decided to just cuddle your head into his chest as he pulled you closer to him.

“I’m sorry for what I said yesterday,babe” he whispered as he cuddled you closer to him.

“Let’s just talk about it later,okay?For now,let’s go back to sleep.The rain is making me so tired” you replied as you pecked his lips for a second.Not so long after that,you fell back to sleep in the arms of your lovely boyfriend.


*Admin One*

So after one of his early missions, Alex somehow makes sure that an envelope makes it to Alan Blunt’s desk. When Blunt opens it, he finds an evaluation sheet inside with some of the following comments:

- unsubtle funeral crashers and dog walkers, you should work on learning to look like real people who have normal lives

- negative points for asking teenage boy to take on job that killed his (properly trained) uncle

- even more negative points for blackmailing. really, shame on you, no wonder people believe all of those governmental conspiracy theories

- sending me to the SAS for a week is not proper training

- also great job not coming when I sent out my SOS

- you actually take horrible care of your agents don’t you?

- Herod Sayle was a disgusting man and now I am scarred for life. you owe me for a month’s worth of body wash products

- all in all, nice job living up to your name, Blunt.

- … you do have nice gadgets. please give my compliments to Mr. Smithers

- 1/10 would not re-use or recommend this bank to anyone

The golden mask of Tutankhamun is back on public display after a much-needed makeover.

The 3,300 year-old mask has returned to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo after being painstakingly restored following a botched attempt to glue its beard back on.

The beard was hastily stuck back on to the mask  after it was accidentally knocked  during work at the museum in August 2014.

At the time, the blue and gold braided beard was glued back on with the wrong adhesive, damaging the priceless relic and prompting uproar among archaeologists.

TAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!

I WANNA SEE YOU FOLLOWING ME BY THE TIME I GET OFF WORK AT 9 TONIGHT!!!!!

Can you do it? It my challenge to you

@taylorswift

I need some positivity in my life!

I work at Best Buy now and dude, I’m still doing computer training. And I can’t even.

And to make it worse, my car that isn’t working properly, should be fixed by Monday (or today or this weekend for that matter), and I don’t have enough money to pay to get it back, nor do I have enough money for a cab to get to work all next week.

So I’m feeling very sad and worn out.

I started crying yesterday when I took the dog outside (bc obvs my mom and stepdad have the security camera in our living room and it can hear anything in the house so I have to cry outside. Anyways…) because I thought that you’d never know who I am and I felt like I’m not ever gonna be lucky enough to have you following me, liking my posts, meeting you and seeing you in concert for the very first time.

I felt that so many times when I started this blog and when my Gilmore blog was originally a blog dedicated to you.

I want you to know that you are my best friend who has been there for me too many times than I can count.

Every one of your older songs and newer ones, I now relate to more than it did when I was 10/11 years old in 2006.

I love you

@taylorswift

anonymous asked:

Do you have a charm that will help protect a friend from negativity? Preferably something they could wear like a bracelet or carry discreetly?

You could quite easily just give them a piece of obsidian to carry around and have them or you cleanse and recharge it every now and again. I personally like smoky quartz for this purpose as well, and I suppose hematite could work as well, acting as a magnet to suck in negativity.

If you want to make them a bracelet you could include one of these types of stones. Lots of stores, metaphysical or not, sell hematite rings that could be used. 

Anything that touches the skin and acts to absorb negative energy instead of deflecting it should be cleansed regularly. I have heard of people wearing rings or necklaces that start to bother their skin like mild burns if not cleansed properly. Take that as a grain of salt of course and check for allergies.

Otherwise a simple bottle charm could contain sea salt, black salt, red pepper flakes, regular pepper, thorns - anything that can act as an irritant would be good at deflecting negativity.

Can’t wait to see what moving in with Yugo would feel like for Rin.

Yugo: RIIIIINN! This bed seems to be for two, that means we can still share beds just like what we always do! <3

Rin: That’s great Yugo, but help me bring up your stuff! Why did you pack all your useless junk?

Yugo: Now, now darling. It should be properly called our useless junk. <33

Rin: Well then, in that case; then would you kindly help me bring up all our dresses, all our make-up and all our useless junk? <333

Yugo: Sure thing, Rin! I didn’t even know I had dresses!
