old brand new blog

Hey Tumblr world so this is my first blog ever! All my life i was over weight and had no guidance on how to be healthy. I got bullied a lot from when I was younger which ran up until I entered high school. I finally decided enough is enough and that a change was needed, so I decided to go on a diet in which I lost about 60 pounds. I was able to keep it off for about a year then once I began college the amount of stress and pressure caused me to go back to my reckless eating habits. This resulted in me gaining back much of the weight I had lost. I then decided to become a pescatarian (seafood strict diet), because I felt maybe the meat was what had contributed to my weight gain. Still I did not monitor the food I was eating so once again I was struggling with maintaining my weight and overall health. I spent so much time (days, months) thinking about how and why I couldn’t be consistent. Always starting off really well with eating healthy then going right back to the junk food. Constantly asking why it kept happening to me. Then one day I told a good friend of mine (who already started a vegan diet) about my struggles and she educated me on a variety of foods, which then changed my views on what I ate and made me realize I need to be more educated on what is entering my body. Gaining this insight as well as seeing the changes in her both physically and mentally made me want to go vegan. When I first began my journey I thought I would see quick results and thought I’d automatically be healthy, but that was not the case. I still had very little knowledge regarding food so I ate the vegan food with no nutritional value. Going into stores & just purchasing anything as long as it was labeled vegan not knowing what else came with it. Now what did that do? It caused me to gain weight once more. The feeling of defeat was much too familiar only this time I decided I cannot give up. As time went by I spent more time on educating myself on what would help maintain a nutrient balanced diet as a vegan. At first I was unsure of how I’d be able to keep it up since I didn’t like quinoa, certain types of vegetables, or beans. My vegan friend changed my thoughts about that as well. She made me a plant based dish that was filled with a variety of different flavors. I could not believe it was healthy! I was in total shock and disbelief. She broke down what she used in the dish Which made me realize I need to get creative. That was when I was introduced to experimenting with plant based foods. My mom also helped influence me in the kitchen, She may not be vegan but I was still able to learn techniques from her which helped me become a better cook. From the seasoning she used to how she cooked certain foods. After learning from her and continuing to practice it was like I literally lived in my kitchen. Cooking something new everyday, trying different recipes, then before I knew it I got really good at making meals for myself and I began to finally enjoy being a vegan. I then realized what brought me more joy was watching my friends and family enjoy the dishes I made for them. Through it all after eating better over time I lost weight and learned how to maintain a healthy balanced LIFESTYLE that was more beneficial than previous diets I tried. I no longer crave the unhealthy foods I had use to, I have more energy than before, I am healthier, my skin cleared up, and my mind is more open and clearer than ever before. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and I am not the same old Catherine. I am brand new, and through my blog I want to share my experiences and continue the ongoing journey that comes with being a vegan. This is no longer a diet, it is a lifestyle! ☺️I hope you guys enjoy!!! 💋❤️

Finally had enough time to finish this today, and I would have uploaded earlier if not for the fact that I wanted to make this /brand spankin’ new/ art blog! Revamped from my old art blog, but a bit nicer and now is actually attached to my personal blog (because I am an idiot).

Well anyways, here are the otp Spirit Babes, I kinda messed up a lot so hopefully my next and many other korrasami posts will look better than this one, so stay tuned for some hot gays and hopefully some art college adventures~

Heads up!

I’ll probably be posting preorders for my Kylux fanbook on Monday or Tuesday!

It’ll be full of all the drawings I’d posted on my old blog, some I’ve never posted, and with a brand new cover! It’ll have at least 40 pages, be perfect bound and be 6x9 inches.

I’m hoping to do some enamel pins as well.

I hope there’s enough interest :’D

Hi there, thanks for the follow! I hope you have a lovely day. Quick question, what made you a Larrie? I'm brand new (my blog is 3 days old).

Hello there! No problem! I am thank you, how are you? :)

Firstly, WELCOME TO THE FANDOM! I actually got into being a Larrie when my best friend puttingoutfireswithgasoline told me about it, probably nearly two years ago now. I probably said something about Harry being hot dayum fine, to which she said “actually I think Harry Styles might be gay.” I distinctly remember being like, “what??? Harry Styles??? as in, Harry Styles… THE Harry Styles… you think HARRY STYLES is GAY? um. are you joking” and going off about all his girlfriends and how he obviously wasn’t.

She explained to me about Louis and how his girlfriends were probably fake, especially Taylor Swift, and showed me some videos. When I got home later I searched Larry Stylinson in Youtube, and came out 12 hours later a Larrie.

If you were looking for the specific moments that made me a Larrie, these got me

1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kw7K1yAy-E  3:34-4:15

Because… bros? No matter how many times I watch this there is literally no non romantic explanation for it. Bros don’t steal glances and secret touches. This is just undeniable

2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hswnxFBrhI the whole thing

Obviously, this interview is famous for “Harry’s getting head” 0:27 and Louis’ next level jealousy when Harry says he’d snog Adele 1:25, but for me the most CLEAR gay here is how they pass things to each other. Breaking news: it is NOT necessary to stroke the hand of the person you’re taking something from, or to take five seconds to take it. I’ve watched this over and there’s plenty of space for them to take the mic or the award without having to touch each other. They choose to touch each other. Because they want to.

Again I’ve watched this so many times, I’m pretty sure they kiss.. right there on stage. Like, guys, I dunno if anyone told you but, performing a concert tends to include… a room full of people so you know… we see you.. there.. kissing

I cannot come up with a legitimate reason anyone would want to do that if you were just friends. Like explain the thought process behind this between bros. “Woah bro that dude touched your leg but DON’T FORGET I’M YOUR BEST BRO just gonna pat you, you know, to remind you. that we’re bros” um

The best and simplest way for me to explain why these, in particular, made me a convinced Larrie, is: FRIENDS DON’T. They just don’t.

and this post isn’t even including evidence for Modest trying to cover them up, when they go to touch each other and then remember they can’t, their “girlfriends” being beards, Louis during Haylor oh god, or Harry’s insistence on using gender neutral pronouns and the general unimportance of gender.

This was actually my first ever public ask so sorry it turned out as an essay and sorry if it’s a bit messy!

Please feel free to ask me anything any time! xx
