opportunity knocking

Good news. Bad news.

Just as I step out of graduation, into a world of unexplored freedom and opportunity, opportunity comes knocking on my door in the form of an old classmate and friend who had a job offer floating around he thought I was good for, with my old course director being the one fishing for applications for it.

So I’ve decided to apply, even though it is highly unlikely I will get the job. But I have 4 years experience as an artist, and my teachers are willing to give me references for the job.

And that’s not the only job offering. There’s been another one on the bench while I was still busy with studies and other matters. Well, now is the time to look back to that one as well - don’t put all your eggs in a single basket.

That is the good news.

Now for the bad news.

Applying for this job will take some time to prepare - CV, portfolio, application process, practising for a possible interview, travel, etc. This alone means I will have less time for my other engagements, which means the October stream offer and, more regrettably, the comic I’ve been working on in collaboration with @safetysketchy​, will all be adversely affected. NOT CANCELLED, mind, just delayed. I estimate an October 30 release, instead of the originally projected October 20.

In addition, in the unlikely event that I do land one of the jobs, I will most likely find myself working full time and have very little freedom to work on my hobby stuff. Which, I admit, would impact my ability to enjoy any potential job I get greatly.

Where does this put me? Tomorrow I’ll be sending in a CV for these job offers, and after that face the weather however the winds may blow. But I know I will regret it more if I don’t apply for the jobs, even if the ideal scenario is that I don’t get a new job and I can keep working on my own plan and design and develop my own games and draw my own art.

Does that mean I am ungrateful for these chances? No, of course not. I am very grateful to have these offers. I am just worried that I may disappear from the lot of you as so many other artists before me have because of careers.

anonymous asked:

hey! so i think here down in hell we can all agree that shiro needs to break down in front of his team. like, sobbing level breakdown, preferably while in some kind of pain. let this boy show weakness, okay? so, that being said, do you know where i can find that sweet sweet shiro suffering? (also, unrelated: why is there not more kuron whump in the world? like, c'mon. you could literally make his body fall apart on him. opportunity's knocking, guys.)

Yeah you slackers! Knock knock, you gonna answer that door or nah?

Oh yeah, though, let this boy just Let it Go™ especially in front of the team so he can be taken care of and held and loved. But hmm… sweet Shiro suffering specifically? Well there’s this awesome new blog called blackpaladindown you should totally check out because the mod is super charming and also knows a lot about things ;) (Jk I hardly know how to make ice). Well if you’re looking for fan fiction I definitely recommend @bosstoaster, @oldmythos, and @fluffyllamas22 as for art I kind of find them everywhere.

That being said if anyone has whump to submit please hmu!!

25 No/Low Cost Self Care Acts

1. Have a drink from your favourite cup/mug. Coffee. Tea. Hell, even plain water is nicer when it’s in your fave mug (and you’re probably dehydrated rn so get on that). Allow yourself the couple of minutes to drink it in entirety.

2. Visit the library. Seriously. Nothing says quiet me time like the quiet couches and a novel in a library.

3. Look up some topics on iTunes U and read up on them. You’ll feel accomplished when you learn about a new scholarly topic.

4. Check over your resumé. Anything need to be updated or polished? Do that now, it can come in handy if an opportunity comes knocking.

5. Call a beloved family member or close friend. I just called my aunt for the first time in a little while and honestly you feel a lot lighter and a lot warmer.

6. Listen to ASMR, Binaural Beats, or guided meditation. There’s ASMR and meditation videos on youtube for pretty much any need– general relaxation, reassurance, mock spa days…

7. Volunteer at the local animal shelter. Volunteering is proven to make you feel better about yourself, petting animals helps lower your blood pressure, and nothing compares to the love and gratitude from a dog or cat.

8. Randomly browse Wikipedia or WikiHow. Clicking the random article is always an adventure– probably a laughable one, but you might learn something new.

9. Clean out your closet. It’ll feel like a lot of weight is off your shoulders, and you can sell or donate pieces that are still in good shape.

10. Write out a list of things you like about yourself. It can be tricky at first, but write down whatever comes to mind, even though it may seem trivial. Put the list away for times when you are being too hard on yourself, or need some self love.

11. Movie night. Obviously. Netflix, Hulu, library… A lot of thrift and secondhand stores often have really cheap DVDs. Re-watch your faves, allow yourself a guilty pleasure, or choose something that looks laughably awful.

12. Have a bonfire. Check your local fire codes beforehand, first. A bonfire or a fire pit is extremely soothing, especially wrapped up in a blanket.

13. Meal Plan/Prep. You’re probably going to be cooking anyway, so setting aside a day or half a day to prep meals ahead of time helps free the rest of your schedule.

14. At-Home spa day. Wash your hair. Trim your nails. Soak your feet. Exfoliate.

15. Write letters. Especially to your grandparents if you’re emotionally close– it will make them feel really loved.

16. Sleep in or nap. No explanation needed.

17. Bake cookies or make eggless cookie dough. One serving of edible cookie dough uses only spoonfuls of ingredients you probably have at home.

18. Wash your pillowcases and linens. This is especially good if you’re like me and the depression is real. Washing sheets gets neglected but the feeling of fresh sheets makes everything suck a little bit less.

19. Forgive yourself. Acknowledge that past mistake that’s been eating you alive and accept the fact that you can’t change the past. You’re still growing, still learning.

20. Keep a happiness journal. Before bed, write three things that made you smile that day. Life won’t seem all that bad, and it’s a good way to de-stress.

21. Shamelessly sing and dance along to music you enjoy. That song you would TOTALLY kill on lip sync battle? Own it.

22. If you like makeup/skincare, go to your local sephora or drugstore that has a beauty section. Sephora does free mini makeovers if it’s not busy. At the drugstore makeup counter, ask the beauty questions that you’ve wanted answers to.

23. Remember to say “no.” Declining to do a favour or go on an outing you can’t currently justify or afford does not make you a bad person. It means you have boundaries and deserve respect.

24. Watch some game shows. Lots of channels have them, and there’s plenty of compilations on youtube.

25. Let it out in writing. Sometimes having it all out in black and white can make solutions easier to realize.

I believe in you all! Remind yourself that you’re a good person, and a bad bitch 💕

Mars in Fire signs
People with their Mars in a Fire sign (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) are quick to assert themselves. They are the type to get angry easily and you will see their temper flare up. More than any other Mars sign, it’s the Fire sign Mars who can resort to violence when angered. They have lots of energy to burn and it can lead to spontaneous adventures and impulsiveness. One thing they hate more than anything? Boredom. They have to be doing something with their time. The Fire sign Mars are prone to becoming reckless and can often find themselves getting in a lot of trouble.

Mars in Earth signs
People with their Mars in an Earth sign (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) are patient and strategic. They are not very aggressive individuals and can be patient with anger. They prefer to spend their time being productive and usually working on their long term goals. They can be very successful people because they’re always on-the-go and they set realistic and achievable goals for themselves. The Earth sign Mars do not mind getting their hands dirty every now and then because they understand and value the meaning of hard work and dedication.

Mars in Air signs
People with their Mars in an Air sign (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) spend most of their time and energy into mental pursuits. They are knowledgeable and can be social butterflies as well. For some reason, they do attract a lot of people because their energy is contagious and fun. They aren’t quick to anger, but best believe they can give a fierce tongue-lashing and a cold shoulder. The Air sign Mars are the types to “think before doing” and so they develop this cleverness to them. They may miss out on opportunities because they sit and ponder too much, but there are times where opportunities come knocking at their door.

Mars in Water signs
People with their Mars in a Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) are indirectly aggressive. Often times, the Water sign Mars at their worst, have trouble containing their anger. Since they are attached to their feelings, they won’t do something unless it feels right with them. They are capable of achieving their goals, but only if it sits right with them and if it’s going to be long term. The Water sign Mars often do need a little push. They have an incredibly strong intuition and no one knows whats best for them like they know whats best for themselves.

Neighbor kept reporting me to the HOA for petty things, opportunity knocked to pay her back and I took it.

I found out today that my revenge was complete so I came here to share it.

My neighbor who we shall call Chirsty would report us to our HOA for literally everything she didn’t like. Trash can still on the street at 5 PM on Trash day, reported. Kids bike outside while kids are still playing, reported. Didn’t mow this weekend (typically I do this Monday nights), reported Monday morning. Dog barking at 2 in the afternoon as she and her dog walk on the path behind our house, reported. In many cases these were not issues covered by the HOA, but due to repeated reporting the board did fine us and I had to go spend the evening waiting through a 2 hour meeting to have them removed. This kept happening and was driving me nuts. Both my wife and I spoke to her and tried to find out why she felt this was ok and she told us, “You just need to do a better job being a good neighbor.”

Fast forward to early this summer. She posts on a neighborhood website sharing a video about the anti-vax movement. In general the replies are pretty aggressive about telling her she is full of it, but she keeps pushing back leading to a super long post about how we all are wrong and we should listen because she is a doctor. She signs it “Dr Christy Lastname, Naturopathic Physician”

At this point I am mostly just wondering what the heck any kind of doctor would be against vaccines. This made no sense to me so I started digging. I did find that Christy was listed as a doctor on sites where you could find physicians. I dug more into what exactly a Naturopathic Physician was and found that in my state of Colorado they are regulated and required to maintain a license to practice. I checked into it and found out the following

  1. Christy was NOT in the state database as a Naturopathic Physician
  2. The board who regulates it has an online reporting tool

At this point I took all the information I had, grabbed screenshots and checked my timeline and reported her as claiming to be a Naturopathic Physician when she was not.

I then followed that up with this post on the neighborhood website:


  • This is a hot button topic for me and because of that and Christy signing her post as “Dr Lastname” I had to dig some. I for one am a HUGE fan of including whole person treatment. I think Doctors of Osteopathic medicine are wonderful as they work to integrate whole health into the picture with well researched medical best practices. Naturopathy less so which is the problem here. One researched article here: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15208545/ breaks down a lot of the issues quite well. It is almost 13 years old, but still quite good at explaining the valid concerns. I further checked as Colorado DOES regulate naturopathy and I could not find any Christy Lastname listed there. My thought was that it is entirely possible that she holds a license to practice in Colorado and my search wasn’t working, but even just searching her first name or zip code or “MyTown” or “TownNearUs” provides no results for a Christy Lastname. There are 2 Naturopathic doctors in TownNearUs, I used this search: apps.colorado.gov/dora/licensing/Lookup/LicenseLookup.aspx linked from this page: colorado.gov/pacific/dora/Naturopathy

At this point Christy locked the post and later deleted the entire thing. I was pretty dang happy that she removed the post, but today it got better. In the mail I received a copy of the cease and desist letter that Christy received form the state about a month ago. It told her that she must cease and desist her “practice” immediately.

Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the callers. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Don’t forget, a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don’t major in minor things. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly. Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Don’t waste time grieving over past mistakes Learn from them and move on. Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at his hour, they were at their very best. Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, ‘Gee, if I’d only spent more time at the office’. Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health and love. Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. Leave everything a little better than you found it. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. Never cut what can be untied. Never overestimate your power to change others. Never underestimate your power to change yourself. Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do. Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in harbor is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. Spend less time worrying who’s right, more time deciding what’s right. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. When facing a difficult task, act as though it’s impossible to fail.

A cold breeze woke you up, shivering. You shifted to your side, trying to snuggle with your personal heater. However, you were met with a cold, empty spot. You leaned up on your elbows looking for Chris around the room, and glancing to see if he was in the washroom. When the room checked out, you knew right away where he was. Chris has been working his butt off for an upcoming role; trying to memorize his lines with perfection. You sighed softly, hoping that he would listen to you and get back in bed.

As you got closer to his office, you could hear him reading, repeating each line twice or sometimes more. He took a pause and you took the opportunity to knock softly, not wanting to startle him. You opened the door to find Chris sitting at his desk, taking a sip of his coffee; looking like a zombie.

“Which cup is this one?” you asked, pointing your chin to the cup as you leaned against the wall, arms crossed.

“Second,” he said, voice muffled as he took another sip.

You looked at him with a sympathy, knowing that he really wants to do his best with this movie. You wanted, needed him to know that no matter what he’s going to be amazing; he always is in your eyes.

“I’m sorry for waking you up,” Chris apologized, thinking his reading is what woke you up. You shook your head and walked towards him while saying,

Manifesting opportunity

So I recently decided I wanted to earn some extra money to pay my taxes and invest in my side business. I wasn’t looking for a handout but rather the opportunity to EARN the money I needed. So I started doing various visualization exercises including how the opportunities might come my way and how it may work, my response to them and how I’d spend it. One of the ways I wanted the opportunity to come about was more shifts as at my job. This was a long shot. Well, here I am 8 days into a 12 day straight shift making bank in overtime pay. Best part? I’m free to do this again every couple of weeks so there’s no end in sight to this extra cash. I’ve accomplished my mission. Manifestation works well when you are prepared to work for what you ask the universe to give you. I hope y’all are having just as much success as I am. 

Don’t worry about the next adventure, you’re already on it. This is something I need to remind myself constantly. I fail miserably, and often. I’m anticipating the next thing or worried about making the wrong choices and ending up somewhere that’s not as good as if I’d made a different choice.
Wouldn’t it be great to be Nick Cage in that movie Next? Remember that one? Where he can see every possible outcome of each of his choices, and just choose the best path? But we can’t all be Nick Cage. And if we all were Nick Cage, what a world that would be. A world of Nick Cages from the movie Next. All knowing what our outcome is gonna be for each decision.
What I’m getting at is that we’re not capable of seeing the future, and knowing which path is “better”. In fact, there is no “better” path, or “best” choice. The choices we make are the ones we make.
So we’re here now, listening to opportunities knock, and listening to the events that slow us down. We react, not to own the opportunities, but to let them guide us toward the next ones. And we react to our problems and troubles, not by stopping and laying defeated, but by shaping our world with safeguards and mechanisms to be better next time. And if we have the willpower, we can open source our mechanisms and opportunities to people around us, get the most out of our hard work, and make this life a little more breezy.
