passing it around

DEH Future Headcanons

i was thinking about what all of the DEH characters would pursue as careers after the show, and i’ve compiled a list.

EVAN: ya boy is gonna be a writer. not just any writer, though. a writer of informative children’s books about nature. because 1. children are much easier to interact with and be around than adults, 2. he fricking loves trees and such, so he’d get to research them for his book, 3. the show constantly mentions him being a good writer and loving writing but not necessarily being comfortable expressing that, and nonfiction writing is much less personal and can therefore be less intimidating. boom. perfect.

ZOE: for a while i thought about her being a science professor of some sort (psychology, chemistry, biology), because i think she wants to see the world progress and to help people. but i changed my mind. she’s in the STEM field and fluctuates between wanting to work in engineering or medicine. if she isn’t a therapist, a pediatrician, or an OBGYN, she’s a chemical engineer, who works in medication production or in finding new sustainable energy sources. Dr. Zoe Murphy you betcha

ALANA: this girl! ! she seems like a wonderful debater, like someone who would go into politics/political science. she can argue and is very logical, but she can also connect with people and help them get involved. her, in college, studying and studying for the bar and then slayinggggg. she is a lawyer all the way, and often ponders about the possibility of starting a political campaign.

JARED: idek man, but i feel like he’d go into tech. something STEM related, like Zoe, with a minor in marketing. then he’d turn to something that’s still tech-based but has an edge of creativity. i.e. software developer. he’d create some bizarre app (i.e. angry birds) that just goes Viral

also heidi becomes a paralegal and then a lawyer and maybe mentors alana? i love it. and heidi sends everyone a copy of evan’s book, of course.

‘Good work’ is relative.

You know how sometimes when you or somebody you know is complaining because some old piece of theirs is getting passed around or reviewed but they feel like it’s old and crappy? 

Think about this: the people who are admiring it and commenting on it think it’s beautiful.  To them, at their level of skill, that piece is something to strive for.

So when you feel bad about your work, you’re not mad at yourself because you’re not good.  You’re mad because you’re not as good as you WANT to be.

But to some people out there, you’re already someone to look up to.

Yesterday was the first day of spring and I can’t help but remember that this will be the first spring in three years where the winds of my neighborhood don’t know you. It almost feels like three years ago when you were just a name being passed around in someone else’s mouth - maybe that’s why I’ve been panicking so much since the sky became blue, because the in between of not knowing you and no longer having you; like the line in between the years on the headstone – we were more than a dash of marble and maybe that’s what terrifies me. That I always saw us as mouthfuls of forever and you only saw us as a dash, a changing season. Something forgotten and fleeting.

Hey, reminder that I’m not the greatest fan of people digging through my blog for old art and reblogging it. I know it’s partly my fault because I’ve made a point when creating this blog to delete no pictures (to document my progression) and to keep a solid tagging system but still

If the drawing is over a year/two years old, please don’t spread it, I feel kinda bad when stuff I consider embarrassingly old n ugly is passed around while the recent work I put a lot of effort into is ignored. I’ll put this in my about

Thank you

@starwitchmari I’m sorry you had to endure that too. Yeah, suicidal ideation, especially with no voices to counter it, is extremely dangerous. I’m pretty sure one of the definition signs of telling whether someone is at suicide risk is if they talk about suicide often. It’s a drastic decision the vast majority of people think for a VERY long time about and the more thought and fantasy is put into it, the more your feelings, desires, and plans develop.

And there is a large difference between seeking guidance or help or expressing anguish in private (or even in public) to a trusted confidant versus making suicide memes that get passed around as uncritical relatable content by other people who are suicidally ideating. It’s a positive feedback loop from hell

Hey so this is a really long shot but my cat is lost. I depend on her for so much. She’s the living embodiment of my fight for mental stability, I adopted her exactly a year after I was released from the hospital after threatening suicide. She means so much to me and she’s lost because my dad let her out of the house when she was annoying him. I live in Plymouth Minnesota. It’s cold as fuck here and it’s supposed to snow tonight. Please try to get the word around.

[Just as a warning: I don’t know what kind of drawing / doodle you will get. Some might be colored and/or detailed and others might not. I’m sorry if you end up thinking that it’s unfair I probably spent like 2 minutes on yours and 10 minutes on someone else’s.]

So now that I totally switched what I do to de-stress- I figured that I might as well do something like this. I don’t know how many people will see this / participate, but I realized that I should probably draw more now that I’m not constantly screaming about life for the most part.  

Here’s what you need to do in order for me to check out your blog / draw:

-Reblog this post (likes will not count, but that doesn’t mean you can’t like this to save the post).

-Wait patiently (I know I probably don’t need to say this, but please give me time to figure out / draw something for you. I might dash out several pieces a day because I’m in some sort of drawing jazz, or I might not). 

-Following me is not required, but it’d be much appreciated!

I will check out your blog (and maybe follow you depending on if I like your content or not), and then figure out something to draw based off of it. I might draw some random content I see that reoccurs on your blog, I might draw you, I might draw something inspired by your theme or something you like, etc. Bottom line is that I have no idea what will come your way, but when I’m done with it I will upload it in a single post, or with a few other drawings, tag your blog URL and the tag ‘mishion free for all’ in it. So keep an eye out for your notifications and/or ‘mishion free for all’!

OK I DIDN’T THINK THAT THIS WOULD GET THIS MANY NOTES. SO I’M TAPPING OUT. I’M SLAPPING THE GROUND WITH MY WHOLE BODY. I’M STOPPING AT 1400 NOTES. I’M SORRY FOR EVERYONE THAT WANTED TO HAVE ME DRAW SOMETHING FOR THEM, BUT WHEN I GET DONE. AND I WILL EVENTUALLY. I’LL REOPEN THIS POST. 

Road Trip

Rick tricked Stan into a ‘vacation outing’ when really they needed some major counseling from Carol in the middle of space because they wouldn’t agree with anywhere else.

I WANT THIS BROUGHT TO ATTENTION NOW

there’s a disorder known as sensory processing disorder or sensory integration disorder

it’s different for everyone, but there are two main types:

hyposenstive, where some or all senses are underdeveloped. i admittedly know nothing about this.

hypersensitive, where some or all senses are over developed- you could say our absolute threshold is jacked up.

for people with hypersensitive, like me, regular noises never fade out. gum chewing might make us cry. people eating can send us into a nervous breakdown. a keyboard clicking might cause us to lose our temper.

or maybe it’s touch. i can’t wear jeans because the seam constantly bothers me. i had an anxiety attack at school because i could feel the buttons on my shirt. i can’t eat many foods because of the texture they have.

sometimes it’s smell or sight that bothers us. i’ve been known to pick up on smells that nobody else could until we were much closer. the lingering smell of rubber in a remodeled classroom has kept me from working. slight movement in the corner of my eye is enough to distract me for an hour.

even taste can be affected. this sometimes comes in handy, like the time i could tell that some cheese dip was spoiled, but it also means that my diet is limited.


all this to say, PLEASE, educate yourselves on this disorder, which is commonly paired with anxiety disorders, autism, Aspergers and panic disorders

and if someone asks you to quiet down or tells you that something odd is bothering you, don’t brush it off as being a dick. they might have this disorder, and it’s hell.

Above is footage of a pod of dolphins passing around a live puffer fish, possibly in order to exploit the psychoactive properties of tetrodotoxin, the exceptionally potent poison found in the organs of the fish. 

Tetrodotoxin, or TTX, is one of nature’s most powerful neurotoxins. In Japan, where puffer fish is considered a delicacy, tetrodotoxin poisoning leads to multiple deaths a year due to improper preparation. At very low concentrations, some neurotoxins may produce a tingly, light-headed high. These dolphins might be stoned out of their minds on puffer fish doobie.

just a heads up if you start seeing memes or other internet posts that reference “rothschilds” or “rockefellers” its usually coded antisemitic language about how “jews control the world” and theyre often connected with the stupid conspiracy theories about the illuminati and lizard people and fluoride mind control and shit like that. are those banking families (or whatever they are) bad? yes, because theyre rich capitalists that make their wealth and success off of exploited workers, but theyre also the big name in the antisemitic conspiracy theories that believe that the society, media, and the world are controlled by jewish people
