My hair has been growing a lot and looking healthier lately, so I decided to pay a tribute to these lovely people for helping me achieve my goal. I change my hair routine all the time, but having been basing it off of theirs.

My one year weight loss journey.

The Summer of 2016 was pretty much filled with me sitting at home, watching Netflix and… eating. I just sat and ate, that’s rather easy to do all day when you wake up at 5:00 PM. Basically, I was living a VERY unhealthy lifestyle, and I had no intentions of fixing it. The reason for that, I had no motivation. 

Well, around the end of the Summer… I weighed in at about 260 pounds. That is NOT good for someone who is 5′10. You can go calculate that on the BMI scale if you want a rough idea. I was still stuck in my same habits but I did one crucial thing that kickstarted the process - I quit every other drink but water. The lack of that overload of Sugar caused me to drop about 18 pounds, that is some pretty okay motivation. I kinda stuck with that but continued to eat like absolute.. well… shit. Absolute shit. That was until I met… A GIRL. Some of you reading this may know this girl. 

Her name is @a-soulless-lime  

After officially deciding we were a thing in September, I REALLY shifted myself into gear. I quit ALL terrible food. I mean, EVERYTHING. I dropped it all completely cold turkey, switching over to grilled chicken and veggies for dinner every. night. for. nine. months. 

So, now that it has been one whole year of dieting. I have officially lost about 100 pounds. 

Here, is a picture of your favorite online voice-actor in all his glory. 

If anybody is thinking about going on the same journey and needs guidance or just doesn’t know where to start. I’m here for you and you can always PM me. 

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day/night, friends.

Top 10 Comics of 2016 (Objective Facts)

Welcome to the top 10 comics of the year, these are comics released in print in single issues. There is several comics I wanted to read that I had not got the chance to read in single issues so they won’t be included on this list. These are 10 damn fine comics I read this year and I hope if you haven’t read them you give it a look.

Squirrel Girl:  A sadly declining star for me, last year Squirrel Girl was no doubt at the top of my lists but this year I feel a bit less engaged with it. This is actually pretty common around all of Marvel with Civil War 2, relaunches, universe changing event after universe changing event it makes it hard to feel attached. Still Squirrel Girl is full of laughs with some stand out stories that came out this year like dealing with Doctor Doom from the past after being sent further into the past. We also had the stand out choose your own adventure issue where subtly Koi Boi is revealed to be a trans man and that is super awesome!

Wic/Div: This comic is the serious, it is not tonely the same as the others but I adore it.  We have gods walking among us on earth, mystery, betrayal, queerness, action, great designs, and a great book. If you want a story that is crafted masterfully and can invoke a wide range of emotions then The Wicked + The Divine is for you.

Space Battle Lunchtime: When Oni Press announced their new lineup this was the title that stuck out to me the most. Turns out my gut feeling was right as this book transports the reader to this new world of aliens that is fascinating to watch unfold. One creator managed with help from editors and what not to do the art, colors and storytelling for this epic cooking show in space. This is one of the most fun energetic books I have ever read. The only problem with this series is it goes by so fast but with only one issue left getting them all together is a great idea. If you want to watch a funny space cooking show and a cute lady on lady romance then come here.

Backstagers: This wasn’t a title I was expecting to even buy. I mean all boy lumberjanes sounds cute but I generally, as you’ll find on this list, don’t read stories about dudes. However, this book is fantastic, fun, queer, and all the great things that Lumberjanes is. I think Backstagers does an amazing job of dispelling the toxic masculinity present in much of male lead media. The creative world backstage is fantastic, it has such a great visual style and everyone who works on this project has everything in them in it.

Jem and the Holograms: The truly outrageous gift that just keeps giving. I love the story, Sophie is like my favorite artist and even with her leaving we have had some solid people taking over and there’s a lot of fun to be had with this series. I do worry about future placement but I am very excited for Misfits and this year is all about this year. With stand out scenes like Blaze coming out, the misfits and holograms working together, the cuties of a 3rd rival band, and more all in play this year I am at the front hoping they will let me on stage.

Princeless: Princeless is a modern classic, a series that every volume is great for all ages. This year I read a lot of Princeless, my little sister adored reading volume 1 for the first time.  More then that I adored reading all the volumes and the short stories of Princeless. This is one that works for the whole family and manages to really go over a ton of great stuff. We have our hero learning new perspectives, saving people, exploring the world, she is a fantastic protagonist.

Kim and Kim: Kim and Kim the queer bffs that do that bounty hunting thing. They have amazing chemistry and are the kinds of loser badasses I love. They screw up a lot, they can be kind of an asshole but their hearts are in the right place. We follow them in one journey this year and it’s a fun journey to follow. Also like it has a trans writer and latnix gals on the art team so that is pretty badass too. This stories only problem is an ending that feels a bit rushed.

Jonesy: This was the biggest surprise for me comics wise in 2016. I saw it and was automatically charmed by the art. I decided it was worth risking wasting 4 bucks on. So i did and haven’t looked back since. The funny world, the endearing characters, the general feeling that this comic is different without trying hard to be. Jonesy is queer,  she’s latnix, she’s funny, she’s a bit of a loser but in a way that makes you feel okay to be a loser too. Jonesy is a story that makes me happy whenever I read it, it’s always at the top of my stack, it’s a book that I can count on. The fact it isn’t number 1 but might be in my top 10 series of all time just says how great comics have been this year.

Raven the Pirate Princess: Raven the Pirate Princess is that book that no one really talks about but should be a staple of everyone’s pull. It’s so fun, funny, illustrated so well and it feels like a massive breath of fresh air. Amazing comedy, a bunch of queer ladies, women of all sizes, skin colors, and we even have some varying ability. It’s great to see so much diversity threaded into this epic scaling tale of a women trying to get what was stolen from her by her brothers. 

Angela Queen of Hel: Angela Queen of Hel is one of my favorite stories of all time. It joins the hallowed ranks of other classics in my mind and despite a few issues moves far past them. The series being canned on issue 7 means so much potential was thrown away and we lost. This story is the most compelling romance I have ever read and it’s such a badass story too. Conquering hell to get your lesbian love back is super cool and then the follow up story is an awesome cap to show their relationship past the climax. No matter what Marvel does to the pair we will always have this story to look back on and cheer for.

A Demiromantic Birthday

Hello everybody!

Today is the first birthday of demi-romantics! Exactly one year ago I was sitting in my bus, browsing Tumblr to figure out what exactly demiromantic and demisexual meant.

Like many of you I found a term that resonated with me. A term that explained why all of my past relationships (which were two at that point) were with people that I had seen as very close or even best friends. A term that explained why I always was this heartbroken, empty, and lonely when a relationship ended.

Originally I made this blog so I would have a place where I could reblog demiromantic posts to or to voice my opinion about something demi related. While that still is most of what I’m doing here, demi-romantics has grown to be so much more. I’ve become part of this community. Blogs that I followed back then to learn more about demisexuality and demiromanticism followed me back, gave me shout-outs(!), and I even befriended the person behind one of these first blogs who is now a dear friend to me. 

As of when I’m writing this, I have 626 followers. I never expected to be this big. I am very honored that so many people enjoy what I do so much that they chose to see me on their dash everyday.

Thank you. Thank you for every like, for every reblog, for every nice word, for every ask. Thank you. Please never forget that I am at your service. You can always come to me and ask for advice or ramble to me about anything. I’m always here.

Special thanks go to:
@demi-aro-ace for being such a great friend to me and to @ace-demi-grey-pride and @discovering-demisexuality  for having been a great help in this one year journey.

P.S. If you haven’t checked out @demisexual-kingdom @being-demisexual or @demiromantic-official then you should totally change that. All of them are great demi blogs with very lovely people behind them <3

A lion took a wolf and a fox with him on a hunting excursion, and succeeded in catching a wild ox, an ibex, and a hare. He then directed the wolf to divide the prey. The wolf proposed to award the ox to the lion, the ibex to himself, and the hare to the fox. The lion was enraged with the wolf because he had presumed to talk of “I” and “Thou” and “My share” and “Thy share,“ when it all belonged of right to the lion, and he slew the wolf with one blow of his paw. Then, turning to the fox, he ordered him to make the division. The fox, rendered wary by the fate of the wolf, replied that the whole should be the portion of the lion. The lion, pleased with his self-abnegation, gave it all up to him, saying, “Thou art no longer a fox, but myself.”

"Till man destroys ‘self’ he is no true friend of God.”
Once a man came and knocked at the door of his friend.
His friend said, “Who art thou, O faithful one?”
He said, "‘Tis I.” He answered, “There is no admittance.
There is no room for the ‘raw’ at my well-cooked feast.
Naught but fire of separation and absence
Can cook the raw one and free him from hypocrisy!
Since thy ‘self’ has not yet left thee,
Thou must be burned in fiery flames.”
The poor man went away, and for one whole year
Journeyed burning with grief for his friend’s absence.
His heart burned till it was cooked; then he went again
And drew near to the house of his friend.
He knocked at the door in fear and trepidation
Lest some careless word might fall from his lips.
His friend shouted, “Who is that at the door?”
He answered, "‘Tis Thou who art at the door, O Beloved!”
The friend said, “Since ‘tis I, let me come in,
There is not room for two ‘I’s in one house.”
