so if you see this and you live in my area

This may be a long shot but...

Hey guys, I dropped my wallet on the bus on NOVEMBER 14th. When I went to the bank to get a new card later that day, they told me that someone had found it and was planning on returning it to a TD branch sometime soon. The thing is, my wallet was never returned to a TD branch. From what I can tell, the contents of my wallet have been essentially untouched. I have called every TD branch in the area to ask if someone had turned it in, but no dice, so desperate measures, oui?

If anyone in MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO found a BEIGE, GUCCI WALLET on the 44 SOUTH bus route on the morning of THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14th, please let me know and please return it. I boarded the bus at 7:36am and it was reported found at around 9:00am. I know someone has it, but please please please please find the time to return it. There is absolutely nothing of value in the wallet, but it contains some very important pieces of ID I need in terms of employment and travel.  I have a trip to the States planned for the first weekend of January, and I absolutely need my ID back by then to be able to cross the border.

If you go to University of Toronto Mississauga, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ask your friends. Especially if you know someone who takes the 44S bus in to school.

Thank y'all if you’re able to help.

ICYMI: A woman in Baltimore received this super weird and homophobic note after decorating her yard with rainbow lights and the words “love” and “ohana” in honor of Pride month. The note reads:

“Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone It Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be Forced to call the Police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.” -A Concerned Home Owner. 

The homeowner, Julie Baker, has responded by creating a GoFundMe page asking for supporters to help make her home even more relentlessly gay:

I am starting this fundraiser so I can work to make my Home even More “relentlessly gay”  If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof!

Because my invisible relentlessly gay rainbow dragon should live up there in style!

Put simply, I am a widow and the mother of four children, my youngest in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!

You can’t make this stuff up.

Hey Taylor! :)

We’re Anika from Germany (that’s me) and Justyna from Poland (totrackusdown). We’re 19 and 17 (fun fact – we share the same birthday on February 6th) and we’re gonna see you live for the first time ever on June 20th in Cologne, so next Saturday (how did time fly so fast?!). We still can’t believe that it’s finally going to happen!

I live about two hours away from Cologne and bought two tickets immediately after the presale started (you have no idea how much I freaked out when I saw that you’re coming to Cologne this time since I couldn’t attend the Red Tour in Berlin last year because of the huge distance). I really wanted to go to my first show of yours with someone who cares as much about you as I do, and since there’s sadly nobody in my area, I started looking on Tumblr. One day in January, I found out by accident that Justyna still had no tickets for the tour, but desperately wanted to go. So I messaged her and after a few weeks, she confirmed that she could go with me! I was so happy! She’s gonna take an almost 10 hour trip from Poland with her family just to see you finally live! We’ve been texting each other almost every day for the last few months and can’t wait to finally meet each other next Saturday.

For our outfits and posters, we’ve chosen the lyric “the rest of the black and white, but we were in screaming color” from Out of the Woods, each of us represents one ‘concept’ as you can see. :) We spent hours and hours creating our posters and putting together our outfits and we’re so happy with how everything came out. (The posters have lights on them as you can see – I used white ones and Justyna multicolored ones – but Justyna still has to add some lights, so we’ll update this post with photos of our light up posters once Justyna has finished everything. :) )

It will probably be the best day of our whole life anyway, but meeting you would be everything we’ve ever dreamed of. We’ll be sitting in the lower range, section 216, row 4, seats 10 & 11.

WE LOVE YOU and can’t wait to finally be in the same room as you in just 6 days!

Anika & Justyna ♥

A note to my educhums. <3

I have been working hard on a new endeavor that I hope will help teachers everywhere. The Snarky Schoolteacher is becoming a blog and business, owned and operated by yours truly.

I’ve been so frustrated by the lack of authentic PD and teacher coaching in the industry. I’ve applied to numerous Coaching Teacher positions in my area and have yet to find one that I feel good about. So, I decided to start my own. The Snarky Schoolteacher will feature plenty of lesson plans, printables, resource roundups, teaching advice, PD opportunities, and more. It will include a free monthly newsletter with links to useful resources you may have missed because you were, you know, teaching. I’m hoping to have it up and running by August 1st.

The reason I am writing this here, on my personal Tumblr, is because I want you to know that you, educhums, are the reason I want to do this. I read about your lives and see how truly passionate you are. You give so much time and energy to your students every day and it excites me to think that my job could be helping to make your lives easier. I hope as I continue with this endeavor you will work with me to let me know what you need. I truly love this community and your input is invaluable. In my eyes, you are ALL snarky - sassy, smart, sophisticated educators. ;]

I’m not sure how I’m going to handle my Tumblr just yet, as I don’t want to use it as part of my business. I may change my username and have this one redirect to my site. My Tumblr will always be my personal space to connect with you, read about your lives, share, and grow. 

With that said, I am so excited to tell you what I have been up to and I can’t wait until I can finally SHARE it. I hope you’ll get excited with me. 

You, teachers, are the backbone of education and I can’t wait to work together to make your classrooms even more amazing.

IT’S COMMISSION TIME!
I’m officially opening summer commissions to pay my (insurance) bills and live through the summer and the beginning of fall since i’m currently more or less broke. I tend to draw more or less cartoonish humans (especially portraits) so that’s the area I’m the most comfortable with, especially faces and expressions. However, I am willing to try almost anything. To put it short

I will draw

  • character portraits and short comics
  • OCs, game characters, fan art, anime, actors etc
  • couples and groups
  • character design pages
  • armour, tech, robots etc (with good refs)
  • gore/violence and nsfw within the limits of good taste

See more from my commission info if you’re interested, and don’t be afraid to contact me via my ask box/fanmail/email! The prices are always negotiable.

Just reblogging this would help me a lot, so thank you!

i’ll never get back home again

i’ll never see your young and pleased face as i used to know

sweet and distorted memories are hunting us

to be adult was not supposed to be a gerbil on a treadmill

so I thought

but big guys think another way

i should immerse myself in routine and work

into the fake news and spamming media

they make me forget what it means to live in love

forget about the importance to keep my mind clear

no way

i’ll find something else

i am escaping gas that fills the area

my soul is spreading over the town

i listen to the noises and watching at the true colors of life

nature has the highest definition

i am out of their control

out of your life

but i still live

i know you are still around

we both keep on keeping on

is it worth anything?

it worth everything

Okay, this isn’t what I normally post but it’s bugging me no ones talking about it. This is where I live, this is happening right now. Forest fires in northern Saskatchewan are happening so intensely, that the smoke is making it down to southern Saskatchewan and across the border. There are over one hundred accounted for forest fires. Visibility is so terrible, you can’t see two blocks away from you. It is incredibly dangerous.

We have been advised to keep children and pets indoors, and avoid leaving as much as possible. It has been advised to not even travel to Saskatoon, the city I live in, or Prince Albert, the city most affected by these forest fires. I can not stress how dangerous this is.

People on the La Rounge and Prince Albert area have been evacuated from their homes with nowhere to go, only hoping that everything they have doesn’t get destroyed. It isn’t even July yet, I fear for what will happen during the rest of the summer.

I haven’t heard of any relief groups for families who have been evacuated, but I will keep you all posted. The smoke is heading over the border, and if these fires don’t stop more provinces and states will be affected by this. We are borrowing fire fighting equipment from other provinces because we don’t have enough to fight it on our own.

I know Saskatchewan isn’t a highly populated province, but it’s where I live, and this has never happened before. I want to draw attention to it, because this is a crisis situation and it is frightening. I’ll try to keep everyone posted on this, and if I’m absent, the smoke strongly affects my respiratory system as I am very asthmatic.

If anyone lives in Saskatchewan, or the neighbouring provinces or any states directly bellow it, please be safe. If you have pets, keep them in doors. Don’t go running, keep your windows up. If you have respiratory problems like I do, keep your medicine on you. And if you’re religious, please pray that this will be over soon.

So I live in Indiana and we’ve been getting crazy amounts of rain. It’s literally been about a week and a half since I’ve seen the sun. Anyway, as you can see, the rains have been causing a lot of flooding, both in town and out in the country. Yesterday, a train was completely stopped on the tracks of a main rail, because a small bridge had collapsed, and it blocked the whole downtown area off for hours.

So, today, one of my friends looked at me and said, “Hey, you’re a water witch, can’t you just ask the rain to go away?” And I just started laughing, like, “No you don’t understand, I’m literally in my element here. This is the exact opposite of a problem for me.”

HELLO!!

I sincerely would like to apologize for what I’m going to do and what I’m going to say.

I’m going to be taking a break from writing for this blog. Idk for how long, but I definitely would be on hiatus.

Ever since the midyear break started (start of June), my emotional and mental areas have been going… how should I say, this.. basically, life is really fucking me up and breathing and living becomes a little bit harder to do each day. Questioning your existence every time you wake up isn’t really a hoot.

So yeap..

Anyway, I’ll still be answering non-imagine asks, if there are any.
See you, guys~ I love you all!

These are my small boobs… I have always been self conscious about them because as you can see, I break out a lot on the cleavage area… That’s why you’ll see my hand covering the cleavage area on most of my boob pictures.

I’ve learned to deal with it and realize I can’t really do much about it. There’s nothing that will make it go away permanently. So, I have accepted them and have to live with this ‘flaw’ of mine. ☺️

Ahh so many cute fuzzies in your gifs! I wish there were fursuiters in my area but I'm pretty sure its a cultural void here :/

You could always check meetup.com or one of those group sites to see if there are any furmeets in your area! :D I had no idea there was a furry community living right under my nose till I looked for it! X3

Maybe see if there are furry Facebook groups for your area :3 I hope you find something!

Less than 10 days until 365 birds are complete! What next, Nate?!

I’ll tell you what!

The next project will be put onto a new blog, which I have yet to make, but will soon!  My next art project will be twice weekly instead of daily (or mostly daily) and will be far more illustrative.  It will illustrate all animals that have gone extinct in the Holocene Epoch, also known as the geological era we now live in (though there is new argument amongst the geological community to mark a new geographical area from the start of the Atomic Age, but I digress!)

So if you want to see some dodos, Tasmanian tigers, and many more lesser known species that have died since human civilization was a thing, stick around for the news!

Trust Me, You’re Fine: On Ending Perfectionism

Originally posted by molestmefox

I’ve always been the type of person who strives for perfection in every area of my life; I want to be the best friend/worker/writer/daughter I can be and do it all while still looking fabulous, maintaining a good diet and workout regime, while somehow making it all look easy. I don’t settle for second place- there’s no point in running the race if I’m not the winner.

I have to admit, this type of thinking and living is exhausting: mentally, physically, spirituality, and psychologically. Fucking. Exhausting.

It’s like when you’re running a marathon and you’re in the second mile. You’ve got a long way to go and you know that, but you already feel fatigued and are so busy seeing what place you’re in, you’ve forgotten to live in the moment. You’re not having fun, you’re just going through the motions.

I’ve decided that living this way is not serving me anymore and that I have to stop. Pump my brakes. Check myself before I wreck myself. Clearly, this isn’t working.

In feminism, I’ve noticed this drive towards perfection is a huge problem. We’re constantly trying to out do each other in terms of how much activist work we can take on while still maintaining our jobs or earning our degrees, We look at success in terms of how much of ourselves we can give to the cause without collapsing. We don’t look at the merit of a job well done in terms of satisfaction, but metrics and Twitter followers.

I’m really over living this life and slowly, I’ve been rejecting it. I’ve been doing things because they feel good or bring me joy, not because I think they’re what I am supposed to be doing or because I want to keep up with someone else. As hard as that may be.

And trust me, sometimes it’s exceptionally challenging! I think we’d all be lying if we said we never compare ourselves to other people. With the amount of access we have to people’s lives online, the temptation to see what Suze Cue is up to and then judge ourselves for not being as productive, smart, talented, or well-liked as she is is almost impossible to avoid. I’ve been down this rabbit hole more than a few times and I know how draining it is.


But I want to challenge you to stop comparing. Stop judging. Stop shaming yourself. Just stop.

Because when you do, you will find out who YOU are, without the influence of other people or social pressures. You will see how much work is comfortable for you and how rewarding it is to have self-care time. The rat race is not a fun place to be!

Here are some affirmations to help get you started:

I am powerful! What I want to bring into my world, I cultivate. I am able to live my truth.

I am balance. I can be successful while still taking care of myself and those around me. I can fit it all in effortlessly, because I naturally find the balance that suits me.

I am perfect just as I am! Who I am is a divine creation and I celebrate her everyday.

Start living for yourself and don’t worry about what other people will think! By being your true self, you will create the perfect circumstances for yourself and those whom you care about. Trust your intuition. Set forth this intention.

And don’t forget to love yourself along the way.

New Friends Near Me?

Hey so… I’m not sure if y’all know but I’m from the Greater DC Area and I’m definitely going to need some people that like… Know me and have some general same interests as me. A lot of my support network isn’t going to be around within the coming months and while I have a really great network of online friends that can support me I do need people that live close by that I can go see regularly or meet up with. I know it’d help me a lot and maybe it’d be beneficial to someone else. If you want to know a little bit more about me look on my about page. If you wanna start talking, hit up my inbox and uhm…. Yeah. Thank you in advanced if anyone does come and like… Talk with me and stuff.

Could you explain how Pangyo is so different than Seoul?

My area specifically is VERY different but I’m not sure if all of pangyo is like this since I haven’t had much chance to get out and explore. But my area is very residential and very wealthy so it kind of feels like I’m in a small countryside town because there are mountains everywhere and barely any tall buildings and limited restaurants and bars but the streets are lined with extremely nice and large houses/apartments like those houses you see rich people in dramas living in. Before coming to my neighborhood I was very doubtful that those kids of houses actually existed but yep they do. There is also a river that is right outside my apartment that has a walking path and is lined with tons of cafes. There are lots of bridges and overpasses too and at night they all light up and change colors and the gas stations also light up and change colors and all the apartment buildings have different colored lights on the top and the buses have free public wifi and the streets glitter.

IT’S SO NICE GUYS but like I don’t know I can’t really describe the difference you’d have to just go to Seoul then come to my neighborhood and see for yourself.

Anime — Love Live! movie in US theaters

I typically only get out to see anime movies in the theater when a new Ghibli film is released or back when Satoshi Kon’s works were being distributed (seeing Millennium Actress in Kendall Square near MIT years ago was amazing).

So when my new obsession Love Live! had a movie announced and a tentative domestic released slated I thought I was going to have to travel all the way from Boston to New York City in order to experience it with other excited friends, but that does not seem to be the case! It’ll be playing in convenient (for me) Harvard Square for one night in September! Awesome! Thank you, historic Brattle Theatre, where I have only gone before to see Indie Game: The Movie, Hausu, Trash Nights, and a wedding.

There’s quite a few other screenings in major metropolitan areas. You should check the full list out!

And maybe catch up on the anime before going to see it, since technically it’s a sequel.


Cleaning house...in your mind.

I came clean about something that has been ruling and ruining my life for the past year and a half to three of my best friends this past weekend and I feel like a load has been lifted off my shoulders. I’ve also deleted all old numbers from people who no longer matter. All very good things.

I’m cleaning HOUSE! And my house is almost spick and span. Now, I just have deal with the things…..I’m ready. Ready to take on the world at this point. I see you, Buddhist temple. I’ll see you on Wednesday. I’m going to the beginner’s Buddhism class at one of our many temples in this town. Which is amazing to me. Back home, I would never have this opportunity to explore this area of the life I want to live and I’m so thankful I can do that here. Even if it is still Vegas….

I can’t fucking WAIT for this next chapter in my life and to see what the Buddhist religion has to offer. I’m actually really fucking excited. BEYOND excited.

dabitties asked:

Seriously man, you're not a woman so you wouldn't know what it's like. I fear going out alone at night and so do many women because of certain groups of men. Feminism is different now, we don't need it for voting rights, we need it for our personal protection

Dodging the implied loaded question, it’s normal to feel unsafe going outside alone at night. Most people do, to some extent. There’s countless threats which vary from area to area, and the strength and extent of the fear also varies. Obviously, someone living in a crowded metropolis may feel more unsafe than someone in a smaller, sparser city with much less crime than the average metropolis. Hell, I feel unsafe going outside at night (although, given that I’m in one of those smaller, sparser cities, it’s more the fear of running into something I can’t see or breaking my toe on a buffalo box).
