or when i want something

how do you silence the voice in your head that tells you you’re a talentless hack and everything you write is garbage asking for a friend

I grew up in Dublin. But I grew up in London, too. It was here that I found out who I was and what I was going to do.I don’t know if I could’ve stayed and worked as an actor. Actors in Ireland tended to come from other professions. Brendan Gleeson and Gabriel Byrne had both been teachers. But I was ready to go when I left school. I didn’t want to spend five years doing something else.

Happy 49th Birthday, Aidan Gillen! (born April 24, 1968)

I just wanna wear cute clothes and dye my hair blue and eat pizza while I play video games with my friends and I want to unexpectedly hug people all the time and tell them they’re beautiful and be amazingly weird and crazy and be the perfect mix of sweet and sarcastic and I want to jump on the crunchy leaves on the path and laugh so loud that you could hear me from across the room and I want to do my makeup perfectly and go to parties with my friends but I also want to be left alone to watch Netflix and I want to dance around in my underwear and play the guitar while I sing and I want to walk barefoot on the beach and take weird pictures with my friends and family and I want to keep my small group of friends close to me and make them laugh as often as I can and I want to give great advice and still look cute with a messy bun and be the person everyone comes to when they’re feeling alone or upset about something and I want to wear band shirts and black converse but I also want to wear cute dresses and flower crowns and I want to go to concerts and sit under the stars but I feel like I can’t do any of that until I’m skinny because people will just think I’m weird

anonymous asked:

can you like??? not say anything when you reblog? theres something called tags??? i want to reblog something without having someones 1 hour essay about how much you love that meme?? please stop??

Look anon, I  say stuff when I reblog because it allows me to better explain myself. I don’t like using tags all that much. Its messy and I usually use them when I wanna organize stuff or just leave small comments. 

Its my blog and I can say and share anything I want so suck it up. If it bothers you that much, unfollow me. 

((also, what fucking meme??)) 

The best part of liking someone is when they nerd out about something to you, and you’re just like “Wow what a dork” but also like “wow what a cutie I love you”

I am so done with this. *throws the pastel monster down*

Fill-a-Page February day 10!

Today’s page is dedicated to the best partner-in-crime a person could ask for, @notallballs, on her birthday. Bb, bless you for being a filthy enabler and encouraging me at every turn <3 

So I just saw [this post] on my dash and wanted to add on but the post was already super long so. Here are some things I’ve learned from about a decade of martial arts (both practicing, competing, and teaching) that might be useful for writers:

  • If your character practices martial arts at a school, know that every school will teach that particular style a little differently. 
  • If your character doesn’t have flexibility/doesn’t stretch. they. will. hurt. themself. trying. to. kick. Even if it’s just waist-high. People who aren’t used to fighting will pull something.
  • People who have been training for a long time will have stronger hands/feet. 
  • Grappling is dirty work. You’re on the ground, you’re grabbing what you can, it’s not as hot as you might think it is.  
  • Holds/grappling/etc. are ingrained reactions. If someone grabs your wrist, reacting immediately is something that is a trained reaction. Same with throwing someone over your shoulder. The steps are practiced again and again and again until they’re gut reactions. 
  • Building off that: even if you’ve trained with a million of these drills, real life is always a little different. You have to be ready to improvise.
  • For the love of all that is holy, karate is not a universal name for martial arts. There are usually modern/sport and traditional versions of martial arts. In my experience, bits and pieces from others will mix together. (for example, I learned a lot of aikido and judo learning self-defense in taekwondo)
  • The effectiveness of the way your character fights can depend a lot on where and how they learned how to fight.
  • This may not be important for writing fight scenes in general, but just as a side note: martial arts have philosophies. If your character is trained in a particular MA, make sure to do research on that philosophy. It might be important to your characterization. 
  • Getting hit hurts. Unless you’ve been fighting for a while and are used to getting hit, you’re gonna be shocked. 
  • The most strategic person is going to lose at least 80% of their thought-process when fighting. The RDJ Sherlock Holmes fight scenes? Where he thinks everything out? Nah man. A lot of fighting is muscle memory & practiced combos.

Too much sanity may be madness, and the maddest of all:
                                      to see life as it is and not as it should be.
