seriously tumblr work on that

how to stick your plans

by a horrible procrastinator


  • keep things realistic. you may think you can read 200 pages of jane eyre in one night, and honestly, you could…but you won’t unless that essay that’s 30% of your grade is due, you know, tomorrow.
    • you know your habits better than anyone. try to work around what you know you’re going to do. can you read about 25 pages without getting totally bored/sidetracked? well, make yourself do that. it’s only 25 pages, right?
  • try to accomplish one thing every day. don’t ever let your day slip away from you without doing anything. even if that “one accomplishment” is making a stupid text post on tumblr or revising your notes or washing your sheets…just be productive!
    • this is especially important for those of you with mental illness! having a “zero day” can really plummet your mood or set you in an unproductive rut.
    • if you really feel like you need a day to just chill out, napping can count as your accomplishment
  • don’t push studying off! you’ve probably heard this one a million times, but seriously. don’t. you’re not going to retain 10 weeks worth of information with one study session…okay, maybe you can, but do you really want to?
    • the best, low-effort way of remembering information is to, at first, review it often. right after you learn the material, review it a couple times during the week. maybe re-write your notes that weekend. then, the next week, visit one or two times, just glazing over parts you don’t really remember well. then, maybe once every two weeks, etc…by the time you get to finals, you’ll be familiar with all the information! trust me, it works.
  • organize your to-do’s. personally, i make a huge to-do list for the entire week. then, i delegate different ‘levels’ of urgency to it (see below.) you can do this however you want, but i do it this way to help me visualize how lazy i can be and not pay for it…
    • i tend to organize it by these ‘categories’ / ‘urgent levels’
      • is there a quiz on the material due soon
      • how likely is there to be a pop quiz
      • what’s my grade in the class like / how badly do i need that ‘a’
      • does the homework/assignment need to be turned in
      • etc

actually doing it:

  • studyspo helps. okay, i know this is kind of obvious considering i’m a studyblr, but… you see that notebook you just bought? isn’t it fucking adorable? don’t you want to make some sweet, sweet note-love to it? you know you do.
    • don’t spend too much time setting up your work space or browsing tumblr. seriously. you know when you’re overstepping.
  • have some nice playlists. preferably with music you already know! if you don’t know the song already, chances are it’s just going to become a distraction.
    • 8tracks is a great site for this! you can make your own mixes or take a listen to one of the many, many study / chill playlists available. again, take a listen to the track on your way to class or whatever before actually trying to study with it on.
    • instrumentals + classical + video game music are the standard
  • get organized. messy = stressy. seriously. organize your desk, organize your notes. even if it’s not really your style, at least try to keep things ‘in your personal order.’ try to pretend you have your shit together. you will be so much more productive & confident if you feel in control of your situation.
    • if you’re a perfectionist, you may want to disregard this. really. you don’t want to put ‘tidiness’ above productivity.
    • taking pictures of your awesome, super-nice work space is awesome motivation. give that illusion of productivity. become tumblr famous.
    • if you can afford it, matching stationary and cute shit like that is super awesome feeling. it makes studying aesthetically satisfying.
  • take care of yourself. brush your teeth, put on that nice-smelling lotion, drink water. eating healthy foods, getting some exercise, all that good shit people tell you to do…it really is important. it’s kind of hard to focus or remain motivated if you’re miserably bloated & haven’t showered in 3 days.
    • especially for my neurod or mentally ill followers!

i fucked up

  • repeat after me: IT’S OKAY. IT’S OKAY. we all fuck up. you’re allowed to fuck up. sometimes assignments don’t get done, sometimes we don’t do as well on tests as we’d like. it’s okay. you’re okay.
  • recovery. alright, so, now that we’ve accepted that we’re human beans who sometimes grow upside-down…
    • cuddle in a blanket, and write down what you think you did wrong. did you not study enough? do you need to go to your professors office hours? write down your ideas.
    • let your failure motivate you! you hit your lowest point, alright? now you can focus on doing better, even if it’s just a few points difference.
    • you can do some things wrong. you don’t need to get an A every single time. did you understand 50% of the material? well, that’s halfway there!
    • you’re not going to be perfect at everything. we all have growing pains.

well, that’s all i have to say. keep growing towards the sun, kids.

shitty banner check

I worked so hard to be able to finish this on time, so Happy Birthday Rapmon!! ♥ 
I have no words to express how much I genuinely admire this man and all of his hard work…

Twitter | Instagram | BTS Fanart Twitter

I want to take a moment to thank all of my followers here on tumblr, both old and new; I usually post not expecting to get much attention on my art because I don’t post as constantly as I would want to, but the fact that you guys still stick around and hype me up the way you all have….. it all means a lot to me! ♥ I promise I’ll post more constantly, but if you guys want to see Works In Progress a lot more often, I am always sharing them on Instagram! 


CHOSS (slang) : two beautiful piles of metamorphic sedimentary mudstone

I drew this picture for @bunny-yams back when he was getting a lot of hate. I was going to post it to make him feel better, but I didn’t have an active tumblr at the time. No one deserves to be berated with hate like that. Especially, not in such a “lynch him” kinda way. I think Brice is a good person, he puts up with a lot and still seems to be able to come back here and do what he loves. I think that’s really admirable. Anyways, here it is (it’s based off of and inspired by his meet the artist post). I hope you like it Brice!

so my darling bf @howtheskycries sent me this shirt which exists in real life:

and said “Au where everything is the same but rhys wears this shirt instead of his other one.

and I couldn’t stop laughing. Naturally, I had to draw him in it.

I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING. Rhys tries to justify this by saying he’s tired of cutting holes in all his shirts. It gives his arm more freedom.

I am still pretty rubbish at drawing bodies and clothing, but I tried to model Rhys’ face after the way @lutnik draws him! I am obsessed with their art style. Even though it seems they don’t use tumblr anymore, you should seriously check their work out (:


What am I doing?

Seriously though… I’m not sure how tumblr really works 😂 I’m just used to looking up stuff on here. Should we really write a book? I have a couple ideas for chapters and such!

Wait, you're the actually the nicest person on the internet I feel loved just watching you interact with your followers bless u and ur art endeavors you're literally amazing!! so excited to creepily watch as an anon fan!!! my traditional punctuation skills go amiss when i get nervous and talk to someone who's cool so i apologize for all the runons!!

ohhh oh nooo this is the kind of disarming thing that makes my heart sing. I’m so glad you think this way? I’m not sure I do anything special other than appreciate everyone who has been supporting me and my work for so long now. I can’t say it in enough words, my followers are the reason I’m now able to make art my job instead of my second overtime ‘no sleep’ job and I can’t ever express enough gratitude for it. 

Aside from that, I’ve been blessed with kind of the most amazing people in the world as far as following goes. I despise drama with all my heart and I’ve always felt like the people who come to me and talk to me are very like minded in that sense? I’m so grateful that people are understanding of why I don’t like to engage in fandom fighting and I’m so grateful we’ve managed to make this an overall pretty chill spot to just have a good time with our fandoms and art projects.

Tumblr blocked all your post of the voltron military au, except from one post and the nsfw post. Seriously tumblr, this new ''safe mode'' isn't working really well.

LMAO OMG of all the posts it didn;t block it left the actual porn this is great good job tumblr 

Apology Post

To start, I would like to say that I am sorry for not posting an apology when everything blew up. I had intended to wake up and clear things up, but due to the amount of people who had gotten involved, I knew that any apology I made at the time would be driven by anger and spite, rather than a genuine apology, and that isn’t what I wanted. I know it wasn’t right, and that a lot of people were hurt that I left without saying anything, but I didn’t want the situation to escalate any further. I have taken a few days, and am posting an apology now that things have calmed down a bit.

I constantly tried to push blame away from myself when rbing sexualized pictures of minors, on the grounds of me being a csa survivor, being groomed into not being able to recognize what is and isn’t sexual. Regardless of if you choose to believe that or not, it was still inexcusable of me. My own experiences and trauma gives me no right to speak over others, especially minors, regarding this, now that I’m an adult. I will be much more mindful of what I reblog, and if I do continue to fuck up, I want you to get angry at me, I want aggression, because otherwise, I’ll never learn. This was a good experience for me, and I’m ready to seriously start working towards fixing myself. Tumblr has been, and still very much is, the only place I feel safe to run to as a trans girl, and as an abuse survivor, and I would never want to compromise the safety of that for younger people again.

With that said, I can’t imagine an uproar on this scale would have happened to just anybody. Even when it comes to other infamous users who were abusers, or racists, or sexual abusers, the harassment directed towards them was much more minimal, with arguably a lot more going against them. I think this needs to be a learning opportunity for all of us. Some people, even some who don’t like me, have been able to look at this situation, and say that, beyond the reblogged posts, it was mostly fueled by petty hatred and transmisogyny. I’ve seen many white people, non trans girls, who have similar temperaments, and reblog stuff of the same caliber, who get away with it. I don’t want to say that this happened solely because I’m a trans girl, because I know my critics hate the “transmisogyny” explanation, but all I ask is that you think of this situation critically, and think about why people were so much vitriolic and hateful towards me, when other people do the same thing and face minimal consequence. This is not me trying to excuse myself, or say that what I did was less than what people make it out to be, I just hope that this can hopefully teach others. I don’t want to downplay what I did, or try to use this as an excuse to get out of it, I just want it to be an example.

 I had seen a lot of people bring up my thoughts towards trans boys, acting like I’m hateful and vitriolic towards them, just because they’re trans boys, along with people saying I’ve claimed that “trans boys have cis male privilege”. This is far from the truth. The most I’ve ever said is that I think a lot of people excuse trans boys being misogynistic and transmisogynistic, just because they’re trans. I merely think that trans boys have male privilege in these online spaces, where everyones identity is respected for the most part, not even delving into real life situations, because that gets a lot more complicated. Someone had also told me there was an anon saying that I’ve claimed to be Native and Latina, or Native and Black. I’ve never said anything of the sort, and with zero evidence or elaboration on it, I think it’s just someone who saw an opportunity to start more drama, so they took it.

At the same time most of the stuff was going on, somebody also got into drama with my girlfriend over it “cheating” on it’s ex. At the time, Nowi was 17, and it’s partner was 20. Ignoring the predatory age gap, Kat would also pressure Nowi into sending nudes, despite Nowi still being underage. They had broken up by the time Nowi and I got together, and there is very little basis to get mad at Nowi over this.

In short, I’m prepared to, and am owning up to my actions. I had made minors feel unsafe in an environment composed of people mostly younger than them, and there is no excusing that. I do not expect, or demand, that people forgive me, this is solely for anyone who trusted me, and felt betrayed, so that they can have some peace of mind. I will be remaking to @icecavechant, and I don’t expect you to follow if you were uncomfortable with this whole situation, but the option is there. If you wish to actually talk about what happened, or there was something you were upset about that I didn’t address, you’re free to message me. But, if it’s obvious you’re just there to continue to harass, I’ll ignore it. I intend to better myself, and I want people to continue to keep a close eye on me to make sure I don’t make the same mistakes again.
