Would you believe me if I said I drew this first out of all the prompts in the challenge? LOLOLOL I wanted to post them in order but I realized the fatesona child thing was also a prompt so… oh well. 😂😂😂
here’s some rambly thoughts about phil’s videos no one asked for
before i say anything at all, this is not phil hate!! quite the opposite actually. but anyway i’ve been finding myself less interested in his channel and his solo videos for the last year and i couldn’t really pinpoint why. but i realised he isn’t making the same kind of videos he used to at all. look at his older solo videos. every video used to be a rambly eccentric story time that was actually an update on like 7 things in his life all at once and he was funny and witty and you never really knew what the video was gonna be about even from the title because he would say “a squirrel bit me!” then tell you about the ice cream cone he had that week or something and it was weird but good weird. like his personality in stream of consciousness style.
i think it’s been a mistake for him to try to reign his videos in to only stick to one topic like making slime or asmr or a list of things he regrets buying because his unpredictability is what makes his videos interesting. the last video i can find on his channel that was done in this style i’m describing was I KILLED MY HOUSEPLANT in july of 2016. go have a watch you’ll see the difference. (side note to say i really enjoyed his 2017 wants me dead and the gym trainer videos and they were focused story time videos done well!!)
like sure his style isn’t the typical youtube vlog format in 2017/2018 but it’s HIS and it’s what made him successful and he seemed happy doing it. phil is a very hyper and chaotic person and he’s hilarious and he clearly hasn’t grown out of that because we still see it on the gaming channel. i miss seeing it on amazingphil and i think it’s the spark that’s been lacking for me lately. thoughts?
Today’s challenge is to combat your negative self talk.
I know that it is really hard, and sometimes you are so used to it that you just don’t notice anymore. I honestly used to consider the positive self talk thought more intrusive, because the negative ones had been with me for so long.
But today I want you to try to catch those thoughts and then counter them.
A couple of examples:
I am such a failure –> Just because I didn’t do well on this doesn’t make me a failure. I’m very successful!
I am so ugly–> Umm excuse you! You don’t get to say that about me! I am gorgeous/hot/fantastic
I’m not good enough –> Screw that, I’m amazing. Just because I didn’t meet their/my expectations doesn’t mean I’m not good enough.
You are beautiful, amazing, smart, fantastic, and bad ass!
Sometimes it feels silly or like you want to roll your eyes at yourself. But today? Try to believe the positive thoughts. Go you!
self-love challenge - post a pic of yourself that you love next to a work of art with a similar vibe/colour scheme (doesn’t need to be a portrait) and share it with the world, we are all works of art! let’s keep the positivity going ✨
With Trollgust starting today a lot of people might need to hear this, me included.
Don’t beat yourself up over art challenges, especially ones that encourage being creative everyday for a whole month. Sometimes you can’t put out what you want and thats fine. Have an idea to to draw your character in a field of flowers but only have enough energy to write a sentence? Perfectly fine! You can always go back to your prompt ideas and work with no time limit. Art challenges are meant to challenge, not give you crippling anxiety, take up all your time or make you feel bad. Don’t be afraid to put out something you don’t like or isn’t finished, because I promise you putting that out is way better than giving up after a day or burning yourself out. And yeah, you’re gonna see amazing artists put out beautifully rendered art, enjoy it and don’t let it discourage you. I promise they didn’t get that skill overnight and by no means do you have to spend extra time to match those skills. So put out that scribble, that paragraph, half finished sculpture, whatever you created and have fun with it! Its all for you and nobody else!
So you have to consider Voltron in general has a thing of… character balancing, just like a fighting game. All of the pilots are set up in a certain way, with strengths and weaknesses. So they have an “ideal” style, strategy, mentality, that their skills are built to accommodate.
You know that person that you love spending time with but don’t see very often? Set something up with them!! A coffee date, a sleepover, a Skype session (with tea or something to make you feel extra close), a long phone call.
Reach out! Maybe it’s hard, but you will be glad you did it.

A/N: This is my entry for my own YouAU Challenge! Here we are, at the completion of the mini-series. Thank you for everyone who has read it, I know that non-reader-inserts aren’t super popular, but I definitely felt the love on this one. Hope this last part doesn’t disappoint!
#bodposfeb 12: Say something nice about yourself out loud in the mirror
Positive self-talk is a really great way to build your confidence! This morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and said “You have an amazing body and a beautiful smile. You are talented, smart and hard-working, and you can accomplish your goals.” It always feels a little weird to talk to your reflection, but I promise, it really does help to hear positive thoughts about yourself out loud. So, what positive thoughts did you share with your reflection today? Share with #bodposfeb
