personal space what is personal space

anonymous asked:

hello im 16 and plan living off campus with a friend during college. Do you think 200 sqft is enough for two ppl?

My dude I am not the right person to ask. Just…. just imagine sharing a room with a sibling, except the person isn’t your sibling. Living space really depends on lifestyle- if you’re claustrophobic and you need a lot of alone time then sharing a studio with someone might be uncomfortable. Maybe you like company and not feeling alone!! But Even if it IS uncomfortable, you’ve got to weigh what it’s worth: is it worth it to be uncomfortable for a while as you get through college? Is the price worth it?

Talk to someone who you know and trust about living space and think about what is good for you. Some people thrive in smaller areas, that’s why tiny houses are a fad. I can’t tell you where your values are or what’s gonna be comfortable for you, that’s something we discover for ourselves.

Just a reminder that I’m an Adult™ and if that makes you feel uncomfortable feel free to:

  • unfollow me
  • ask me to unfollow you
  • block me

I won’t get mad or anything. It’s important to make sure you feel comfortable and secure.

Imagine a group of humans and aliens talking about their home worlds while in the ship’s canteen. One world is covered entirely by water (the crew members from there have to wear special masks to help them absorb the oxygen they need from the air); one is full of rare minerals and littered with what, on any other planet, would be precious stones and one is carpeted with dense vegetation and has the more biodiversity than any other planet.

Once they’ve all finished talking about their own planets, everybody turns to the humans and asks them what Earth is like. They’re only doing it to be polite though. They haven’t heard much about humans (except the usual stories, and only fledglings believe in those) and they can’t really believe that these fleshy bald looking things come from anywhere even remotely as interesting as their own planets.

There’s a pause and then one of the humans speaks up, “well, I come from a part of Earth called ‘England’ and, to be honest, it’s nothing like as cool as your planets sound. It’s alright though. We got some snow last year, so I’m hoping that we’ll have some this year as well when I get back.”

“Snow?” one of the water breathers asks, hissing slightly through their mask, “what’s that?”

“Frozen water that falls from the sky.” The human explains, “it’s really fun to play with. It’s only called snow when it’s soft though— when it’s hard it’s called hail. Nobody likes hail, you can’t do anything with it and it hurts if it hits you. I looked up during a hail storm once,” she adds, “when I was a kid. Huge hailstones and one hit me right in the eye! Hurt like Hell.”

“Is your planet really cold then?” one of the aliens asks, sounding doubtful since nothing has looked less equipped to deal with cold weather than a human.

“No,” she says, “not everywhere. England’s pretty cold, but in the Summer sometimes we get heatwaves. Last year I went out in one and forgot to wear suncream and got sunburn all down my arms.”

“Your planet’s sun… burned you?” a horrified creature asks, “was it painful?”

“Not really, just stung a bit,” she shrugs, “it was fine once the skin started to peel.” (At the back of the crowd that has now amassed around their table a voice says “I didn’t know humans moulted.” and another, horrified sounding voice replies “that’s because they don’t!”) the human continues on regardless. “It was really annoying actually, because it meant I couldn’t go out for a bit without wearing a jacket. Then when my burns had finally healed, I wanted to go to the beach, but when I got there there was this huge thunderstorm and I had to go home again.”

“Thunderstorm?” the word is whispered, mainly because the person asking secretly hopes the human won’t hear them so they won’t have to know.

“It’s when the clouds get all dark and it starts raining,” the human explains and everybody sighs with relief. Most planets have rain. “The clouds make these really loud banging noises,” she continues, “that’s the thunder, and electricity shoots down from the clouds— that’s called lightning. Sometimes people get hit by it, a few people even survive. I once—”

But one of her human friends cuts her off. “God,” he says, “you Brits are so boring, always talking about the weather!”

While she argues with him, the creatures seated around the table stare at them in astonishment and start to give a little more credit to those old stories. Because, though they look pretty harmless, a species would have to be tough to be able to survive on a planet where a person could be pelted with ice, burned by the sun and nearly electrocuted by the sky and then have another person describe those experiences as boring!



Papyrus’ concept of personal space is….peculiar.

I’m bitter AND sticky so let’s get gooey on topic!

People just? forgot that ton of season 3 episode’s visuals are  actually amazing? I mean it could be just me but this season clearly trowed a ton of budget into some scenes an episodes! 

Super Watermelon Island got an amazing fluid fight scene between two giant women and it was as energetic as it sounds 

Gem drill, even tho it was pretty chilly on animation, had ton of detail on Steven’s faces, I find it like such a sweet detail having in mind the episode was focusing a ton on Steven and his connection with the cluster 

(this is my personal favorite)

Hit the diamond had a TON of characters on-screen at the same time, having in mind 5 of them where new characters and they had to design new clothing for 5 of them 

Even though my favorite part of this episode is the bond between Amethyst and Peridot, I think Too Short To Ride was pretty consistent, I am in love every time they put little lines under the eyes of the characters because it usually helps to remark the emotion they are feeling, is personal. 

Stevonnie’s back for Beach City Drift and the thing I like the most about this episode is the backgrounds and the color choices, they are AMAZING and pretty relaxing to watch on their own. 

Monster reunion was pretty harsh to see for me because painful scenes (aka scenes where the character is clearly in pain) make me feel incredibly bad, but I again shot out how they draw emotions and the subtle lines that make it all even better. 

More than for animation itself, I praise a lot Alone At Sea because of writing and atmosphere, and the last one really works, I felt incredibly… tense, when Jasper showed up, how she acted and the way she expressed herself, and how the colors got dark and the rain around it… just gosh

Even tho it was a pretty okay-o episode in general, I really liked Gem Hunt’s backgrounds, the whites and cold tones made a good mix with Jasper’s colors and really helped her to pop out! 

I’ve talked a lot about Bismuth, so at this point everything would feel redundant, so I’ll just say that the first and last scenes have pretty good colors, one being calm pastel tones and the other reddish dark tones #BRINGHERBACK2K17

And finally, Bubbled, which has some on the most beautiful space backgrounds i’ve seen in an animation product, is the feeling of emptiness that makes the most of the episode personally, how is literally just Steven and Eyeball and Eyeball pretty much tries to kill him, in other situations you can think about something going on, but is the fact that they are in space what makes it feel… well… empty, giving more focus to the characters that contrast the most in a sea of dark cold tones and blacks! 

DEH Guardian Angel AU: Connor

“You’re my what now?”
“You heard me dumbass.”
“Not really, I was too terrified to listen.” The other…teen? rolled his eyes before turning around allowing Evan to see his wings.
“I’m your guardian angel, here to lead you down the path of righteousness and shit.”
“I must of took too much of the pain medication, the doctor said I’d start seeing things if I took too much,” Evan said this to himself walking straight through the figure to his desk and looking at the pill bottle.
“What? No, you didn’t take too many meds.”
“I should call the doctor,” picking up his phone Evan was surprised when it flew out of his hand on to the floor. “What the-”
“Believe me now?”
“How’d you do that? The thing with my phone? I mean I just walked through you, how-”
“What part of guardian angel do you not understand? I can do that kind of stuff.”
“I…if you’re really my guardian then why are you here, right now?”
“That’s really what you wanna ask me?”
“Alright, I’m here because you fucked up your suicide attempt.”
“I don’t know what your talking about.”
“The tree?”
“T…that was an accident, I didn’t mean to-”
“We both know that’s a load of bullshit otherwise I wouldn’t be here.” Evan went quiet for a second.
“H…how did you know?”
“It’s my job Evan, you fucked up and now it’s my job to make sure you don’t try it again and get you back on the path to heaven.”
“Oh…but shouldn’t they have sent you before I-”
“Listen, I don’t write the rules so unless it is imperative please don’t ask me anymore questions.”
“What’s your name?”
“Just Connor.”
“So you’re here to help me, do what exactly?”
“I’m here to improve your life, make sure you don’t try any shit like that again and then I’ll leave when you can function on your own, angel free.”
“You’re surprisingly vulgar for an angel.”
“I get that a lot, now as my first act of guardian angelness I’m telling you go back to sleep.”
“With you here?” Evan’s face turned a bright red as Connor realized what he was implying.
“Unfortunately, I have to follow you everywhere.”
“Even the bathroom?”
“Yep.” Evan’s face turned even redder as he climbed back into the bed trying to find a way without laying on his cast before finally closing his eyes. This proved to be harder than he thought knowing that there was someone watching him toss and turn.
