Okay, so listen up.

I know, you might be stressed out about starting school, or placement auditions; you might already be at school thinking that everyone is better than you (pro tip: they’re not), you might be worried about playing your concerto at tempo, or soloing with an orchestra, or auditioning for a spot in one. You might just be having a really bad day, and you haven’t even touched your instrument yet. Or maybe you’re having a good day—but I want you to listen:

No matter what you are feeling right now, I want you to take a moment to think about why you love playing your instrument. Think of some time when you were playing and it made you super happy.

And when you’re done with that, I want you to go pick up your instrument and do something with it that makes you feel that way.

Take 15 minutes and just do it.

Play a silly song, get creative with your scales, sight read something on imslp. Pretend your cello is a giant guitar for all I care…just let loose, smile, have fun, and most of all, stop worrying!

You’ve got this; you’re gonna make it!!

okay i’m done with the salt on this blog

reblog one of my dumber pics in a bid to cheer this place up slightly and then

Trans women are women, regardless of how far into their transitions they are. Even if they’re “pre-everything,” they are female. Their bodies are female. Not male. To say a trans woman is “physically male” is like saying a woman is defined by her “parts.” Which is sexualisation. It’s misogyny.

Tails is Taking a Break

I know, I know. I’m leaving this weekend and won’t be back until Monday and now I’m skimping out proceeding up to it. Sorry guys.
I uh… last night I had a panic attack. At a little past midnight.
Skype was a victim of my anxious deletion spree, and I don’t know if it will return. It was really nice talking to the people I got a chance to actually meet more personally than just “cute snake!” “Thanks.” But it was definitely a trigger to my eventual break down.
Ugh I hate putting this stuff on here. But I don’t want to just disappear out of the blue without reason.
One of my friends (jokingly) brought up h how easy it would be to hack someone through Skype. Then the subject of rape and murder came up and my mind, as per usual of staying up past 10, wandered to the dark recesses of thought and never got pulled back down.
Hence why I’m telling you all this. Skype is gone and I’m taking a backseat on my activity. I’ll still be around to answer questions as promptly as I can, but I don’t know how frequently I’ll be uploading anything new or things of that manner.
Sorry guys.


Teen With Epilepsy Has A Seizure When Her Service Dog Is Distracted

This article is too important for me to just post a link that you probably won’t click through to read.  THIS is why you DO NOT EVER pet service dogs.  They are working and it can mean serious injury or even death if you are distracting them from doing their job.


PSA If you didn’t make it, somebody else did. It didn’t just magically appear into being.  Google isn’t actually a google of tiny elven creatures that live inside your computer and create awesome graphic works of art for your re-posting and credit-taking entertainment. Google itself is not a source and if you “can’t find the source”, then use something you can source and give credit to.

why you should watch Agent Carter
  • Peggy Carter is straight up a hero— all of the goodness, all of the noble traits, the archetypal background of Lost Love, desire to do good by the world
  • chill ass female buddies
  • I’ve already cried twice dear god Haley Atwell A+++++
  • every time Peggy eats she stuffs food in her cheeks and it’s the most fucking adorable thing I’ve ever seen okay
  • assholes who get what’s coming to them
  • “tip generously”
  • Saudi Arabia:expresses “deep sorry” in response to “this cowardly terrorist attack (Charlie Hebdo) which is incompatible with Islam religion.”
  • Saudi Arabia:has a representative in the current Paris March in solidarity with the people murdered in the attack
  • Saudi Arabia:sentences a man (Raif Badawi) to ten years in prison and one thousand lashes for "insulting islam" and "adopting liberal views"
I’m sorry I’m not the type of person that can be someone’s “fwb” or “thing” or be in a open relationship. I grow attachments and I develop feelings. My heart just wants one person who wants me just as much and no body else. Is that so complicated?
