share what you love

Gently throws this post at you

Stop telling young/novice artists ther art is “cringy” and “shitty” and “only fun to laugh at” it’s stupid and gross and just makes you look like a douche canoe.

If I had been harassed at such a young vulnerable stage of my art career I would have quit without a second thought.

To all young/novice artists:
I am here to support you! If you want tips or help with ideas or critiques I’m here to that

Don’t let anyone make you quit what you are doing

You don’t have to be prefect yet but it’s okay to make that somethin you strive for

It is okay to be PROUD OF YOUR ART even if it isn’t of highest quality compared to others

I’m so proud of you for sharing your art and being creative and I love what you do keep it up.

I love to follow novice artists the always surprise me with their improvement.

You are the first person I want to talk to when I wake up. The last person when I fall asleep. The one to share good news with, the one to upset with. I love you.

the cicadas are singing / the cicadas are dying
in droves. they are droning graveyard hymns
so relentlessly i have to wonder:
is it their funeral or mine?
maybe i am the one being buried
here under the summer heat.
maybe i should be mourning too.

dear dante, do you wear shoes in chicago?
what i mean is: will you still be the same
as i remembered? and do i want you
to be the same? you can’t answer
these questions; i’m just wondering, i guess.
just wishing something could be different
even though i don’t know what.

dear ari, chicago is too full of shoes;
not enough birds / not enough dreams.
i miss swimming, and i miss you—
can i say this, at least? i almost miss
el paso, but the memories of home
are starting to blur. everything hazy
except you’re always in sharp focus.
you can’t answer but i’m also wondering:
if i held your hand, could we make it
through all these faded june afternoons?

ari.

(maybe. i don’t know. i don’t know—)

dante.

if we carried hope into a thunderstorm
could we finally taste the rain?

My significant other motivates me, and so should yours. If you need time for yourself or to make yourself better. You can do the things you need to.
They teach me what they’ve learned, allow me to work, see the things I can do and he pushes me to the good things and vice-versa.
I see them more like a soul and I’ve accepted things in life. I’m just happy I’ve found someone to see a future with, that I can tell people about. Share advice, knowledge, and thoughts.
There’s so much future. If you don’t motivate, carry, and take care of the things you love, express/support them and your relationship then nobody probably will. I’m straight, and in love. I’m dreaming for all of you too.

someday

Four months ago, Gansey and Ronan kissed.
Four months ago, Ronan almost died.
Now it’s New Year’s Eve, and they’ve run out of ways to not talk about it.

Bring It Back

A/N: So for some reason I’m super stocked about sharing this. I have an idea for a part two involving some smutty, smutty action, so let me know if you’re down for that. I would love feedback on this one. Also I know the year doesn’t match what happened in reality, but it’s fiction so I can change it.

From y/n: Your mom said you were back in town? Want to meet up for coffee?

You felt your heart race only half a second after you sent the message. Today was the day. Today was the day to tell Shawn how you really felt about him. He’d been gone for months and you’d spend those months debating whether or not come clean, but this was draining you to keep in and you weren’t sure how much longer you could bare it.

Found this silly poem and it made me think of you and your froggos.
