soap-making

things framework grant ward has probably googled at some point:

  • why do strangers hate me
  • is it cheating if you wake up in bed with a different version of your girlfriend who’s from another world where she hates you and you aren’t together and you’re actually just an avatar in a virtual reality
  • am i real
  • can soap make you evil
  • blue soap conspiracy
  • how to make your own soap
  • tips for successfully overthrowing your evil government and bringing peace and stability back to your country
  • earthquake puns
All those little things

All those little things, that make life good, that make us survive from the early mornings when you need to wake up for school or job to the late nights when you need to finish your work. Good cup of hot tea, when you need a little break from papers or coffee when you need to wake yourself up. Love how good smell of simple soap can make a smile on the face. Little things as warm water on your skin at the end of the day or your favorite soft blanket, that one peace of chocolate you eat when you’re in stress, smell of candle you light up every night, colorful flowers on your table, reading your favorite book over and over again, notes of your favorite song or just pencil and paper, when you finaly get a chance to draw something.

The pleasure of these little things that make our lifes less suck!

IDEA THAT I NEED OPINIONS ON!!!!!!

So, seeing all of my friends struggling with “Adulting” and things that they never had a chance to learn growing up, i want to start making videos.

Now i know what you are thinking “hasn’t that been done already?” And yeah… with folding laundry!

What i want to do is help kids who didn’t have the same opportunities that I did and show them how to make cheaper soap, basic bread recipies, HOW TO SHOP WITH PRICE MATCHING AND COUPONS SO THEY CAN SPEND LESS AT GROCERY STORES!!!

I wanna show them ratings for tax programs they can use to make doing taxes easier! HOW TO COOK AN EGG!! Make ramen noodles healthier (and tastier) and how to look through ads and shit.

Hell, THERE NEEDS TO BE A VIDEO ON HOW TO CALL A DOCTOR AND WHAT YOU NEED WHEN YOU CALL!

HOW TO UTILIZE A CROCK POT!! SAVES SO MUCH TROUBLE FOR THOSE LONG SCHOOL DAYS!!

BEST DAYS TO SHOP FOR MEATS

HOW TO MAKE FOOD LAST LONGER

JUST HOW TO ADULT IN GENERAL!!

sorry for the yelling, I’m just super passionate about this kind of thing.

Would you guys be on board if i started making Videos for this kind of thing?

I need to get a camera first and a few other things but i can do it (i might even just ask my in laws if i can borrow their go pro lol)

What do you guys think? Got any ideas on what i should cover?

  • fanfic writer: *writing* Oh wow, they are going to love this. This is by far my best work!
  • fic: *witty lines* *perfect love making* *fluffy enough to kill us all* *a dash of angst, a smidgen of hurt/comfort*
  • fanfic writer: Oh man. This is it. This will be my legacy! *sweats into fic* *bleeds into fic* *cries into fic* *spends days perfecting the grammar and verbage and sex scenes* *has 15 betas look over it*
  • fanfic writer: Okay. It is finally time to release my baby on the world. Here you go fandom. You're welcome.
  • fandom: Ha, cute. *like* *kudos*
  • fanfic writer: :/
  • * * *
  • same fanfic writer: *writing* Whatever. This is shit, I don't even care right now. A singing squirrel? Sure, let's do it. Haha, cheesy lines that make no sense, sure. Grammatical errors out the wazoo? Why not. No one's going to read this piece of crap anyway, I literally wrote it on a scrap of 1 ply toilet paper with a broken yellow crayon.
  • fanfic writer: LOL *post*
  • fandom: OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING YOU HAVE EVER GRANTED US WITH, WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE, OMG, I NEED A SEQUEL IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE. WHAT THE. I'M NOT EVEN WORTHY. *kudosrebloglikereccomment*
  • fanfic writer: *sigh*

“… for those with gorgeous flow and silky mitts.”

Now which one of y'all decided that you didn’t have enough hockey in your life so you had to go ahead and make puck shaped soap???

Eternal Steel and... what should I name Hancock’s?

So I was quite proud of myself. After months of self-doubt, I finally bit the bullet and mixed up fragrances for Maxson and Hancock.

The result? Fucking perfection. I based these on their coats. Both involve tobacco and booze, but that’s where the course alters. Maxson’s has leather, cold steel, rich bourbon and vanilla tobacco, a touch of ozone from laser rifles; an interesting mix of warm and sharp notes. Hancock’s has a hint of grape mentats, a touch of gunpowder, and a pleasant blend of musk, patchouli, and amber (all sweetened with a bit of caramel) because damn, that’s an old coat.

Show me some interest and I’ll reopen my Etsy shop. I’ve sold fandom-based perfumes/colognes for years, and before closing it, I did have scents for Danse (”power armor grease & testosterone”, indeed), Valentine, MacCready, Piper, Nuka Cola (and cherry as well), Fancy Lads, perhaps a few other things. If I’m being honest, they tended to sell out immediately.

I had already made base notes for things like hubflowers, tarberries, etc., and had a Cait fragrance in the works. I suppose Deacon will have to be limited to products like body butter, because he’d be fragrance-free, right?  ;)

Encourage me if this sounds like fun. Got any good ideas for companions I haven’t mentioned here? Please let me know!!  :)
