really love yourself

i think it’s hilarious how people shun inanimate insanity for “having too much drama” cause like

steven universe handles topics involving abuse, the main protagonist is mentally dead inside at age 14, there’s shit going on involving grief, self worth, trauma, and so much more “drama” and many people cherish the show for doing so, (as do i) saying it’s helping people who can relate to all of this, as well as all the lgbt stuff that goes on in there being really cool.

but as soon as inanimate insanity handles self-worth, friendship and betrayal it’s woah that’s way too much drama this show is horrible

like go fuck yourself gently with a chainsaw man

jake peralta doing IT for/because of amy santiago

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. 

“I think that… I think that until you’ve fought those battles yourself, until you’ve had the guts to stand up for who you are, you should be really fucking careful talking about and putting yourself above Gay Pride.”

the puppy bowl is the greatest invention of the 21st century. hair dryers included.

Putting on a bikini is probably the last thing you’d want to do when feeling bad about your bod….. but this helped me a lot actually. Lately I have been struggling quite a bit with body image. I’ve lost quite a bit of muscle over the last few months due to not being able to be consistent with working out because of my anxiety and depression getting so bad, so my butt has gotten smaller and my belly has gotten softer and my quads are basically non existent and it’s been really difficult for me. But I’m realizing that it’s normal for bodies to go through changes!!! Gaining weight or loosing muscle doesn’t make you any less attractive than you were before!! I’m still beautiful, I still love myself. It’s okay, I’m okay!!!!

Heyho Maddox! So I need advice. I'm a 12 year old artist. Everyone in school refer me as a "young artist" and I love drawing. It's my passion. But, my parents aren't supporting me and tend to get mad at me everytime I want to draw. They want me to stop and be a doctor but I don't want to. I want to be a successful artist like you. Help please?

My parents didn’t really supported me being an artist till I was 18 (when I decided to do art for good). But I understand why they push us to do something else besides art. They worry and they know its an unstable/unpredictable job. 

You are also really young at the moment. When I was your age, I wanted to be a Fashion Designer or a Veterinarian but ended up doing Animation because believe me when I say ART is just a general term of so many other specialisations that you have to consider.

Its just like if you wanna be a doctor, what kind of doctor you wanna be. Same applied with art, what kind of art based job you wanna pursue? I am currently studying animation but I like illustration very much. And there are a lot more like graphic design, interior design, fashion design, comic artist, and etc. So you do need to do more research and put more thought on what you really want focus on for art.

I will also be very real with you since you are considering this as your future and job. Art is something you really need to love and have 100% passion in doing because there are a lot of factors like rejections, criticisms and conflicts that may make you feel like shit.

If you are very sure if you are gonna give art your all, then go for it. Convince your parents in every way possible because thats ONE of the few conflicts that you need to over come. Its like an endless battle when it comes to the creative industry. Do what you strongly believe in. 

Convince yourself before you convince others.

I just really love the different ways the members of team JNPR comfort their sad friends.

Jaune is super patient and accommodating, and just kind of listens and offers really well-chosen words.

Pyrrha is very proactive and devises a solution of how to solve the problem, then is super nice and helpful and just a generally wonderful human being.

Ren is too reserved to straight-up talk about problems, but he’ll take really good care of the person and fuss over them a little until they cheer up.

And then there’s Nora.



❣️Because of the thorns
A beautiful rose 🌹 can bloom
Dark red flowers 🌺 it means I love you
Even if I bleed everywhere I wanna know you
Cause I think about you err-day
I’m already addicted to you❣️🎵🎵🎶

note to people complaining about subplots and supporting characters :but mostly just a rant about the neglect of Eva's character

ok so I really need to say this -

everyone hating on Julie for allowing screen time for noora’s relationship problems and vilde and magnus’s relationship dynamic like guys out of all the material we’ve got till now it’s probably a sum total of 5 minutes. idk why you expect Sana’s season to not make room for other people’s subplots when we are the one’s who pride ourselves on the fact that we’re all patrons of a show that is realistic and in real time. well real time doesn’t work only for the pov character it’s obviously going to move the same for everyone everyone’s life is going to have things happening in it and not just Sana’s and it is going to interfere with her own life sometimes

also sana does care about all her friends she just hides it under all that sarcasm and sternness cuz she’s such a MOMMA bear

I don’t think it fair considering the fact that Eva’s season had to make room for so many introductions and subplots, a jealous havoc wrecking so called best friend who pretty much created all the trouble that Eva got into indirectly (just because he was in emotional turmoil doesn’t make what isak did to Eva in season one ok at all) like And SHE FORGAVE HIM FOR IT (and I’m glad for it I wouldn’t give up s3 for all the fries in the world)

and despite all the focus that Eva lost in the first season no one is complaining about the fact that we don’t get enough about her story. like ok suddenly after breaking up with her boyfriend that’s all that Eva has been reduced to? an alcohol happy party animal who has literally nothing going on in her life anymore? that is so wrong and misogynistic - just because the guy is out of her life doesn’t mean her life has none of it’s speculative 3 dimensional quality anymore? is she not her own person ? and as if for consolation we get that little bit of Eva making out with penetrator Chris in season three and cute with him at the Christmas party(and she was IMPORTANT AGAIN ONLY for the five minutes in which she was seen with a guy and had that fucked up mini romance…really¿ guys?) like hello he is the literal asshole who took advantage of Eva when she was emotionally incapacitated, he’s the reason she was slut shamed in front of the ENTIRE SCHOOL and now you’re all ok with all that and all buddy buddy with him despite being the truest fuckboy of the show

noora’s relationship and it’s problems have literally stretched for 3 seasons which can be justified since noora deserves better but so does Eva - but Eva is literally just this person in the background despite her explosive scandal in the first season, despite her being the first person to Introduce us to the world of skam, despite being the person whose house is literally the squad nest

Eva’s season was overshadowed by so many other characters’ lives and problems yet in Sana’s season we don’t want to allow that?

Evak’s season was allowed to have such great focus and justified by the fact that isak’s world is separate from the girls so ‘thats ok’ and even there we had noora’s subplot of abandonment and sana being beautifully understanding of religion and homosexuality as things which can co exist and her insight into the mentality of people who say otherwise and vilde being in love magnus and her kose group, but again Eva being left on the line when isak hides his drugs in her house (which is again NOT WHAT FRIENDS DO) and that’s it

Eva is just being made out to be this floating head who has the sole purpose of telling the group all the gossip that’s going in the outside world, falling into trouble on other people’s account and having no story or problems or subplot of her own despite being a 3 dimensional character (who had the wisdom and bravery to leave a relationship she was becoming toxically co dependent on so that she could be her own woman and discover herself) and just being portrayed as this desperate gossiping girl who is not — which I AM NOT OKAY WITH AT ALL. I want more Eva kicking ass on the emotional battlefield and in reality against slut shaming and also discovering the wonderful person that she is and helping vilde discover herself and teaching herself and vilde to be unashamedly themselves. basically to summarise I think it’s only fair that since Eva’s plot had to make so much room for other characters’ subs all I’m asking for is for her to have an equal share in their plots and be more than just a friend on the sidelines what she went through was just as emotionally harrowing as what the others went through and is just as important cuz there is no yard stick comparison in these matters….
