sometimes i like to think i'm talented

I know that what you do might seem pointless or stupid or even just distasteful sometimes. That's normal. We love what you do. Don't feel pressured to be motivated all the time... it's not healthy. You are awesome no matter what you're doing, your projects have worth. I'm sorry you don't like Underverse very much. Personally, I love it and I think you're a creative, awesome, talented person. But even if you left Underverse right now, I'd still be behind you and following your work. <3

I don’t feel so happy at all since I’m in a few hours to have a special day for me because of all of these thoughts. Sometimes I still think I didn’t deserve the chance to transform a hobby to a real job.

Tthe only thing I can do for now is at least keep being kind and trying to forgive myself for all the stupid things I did and words I said to myself.  I’m not sure how long this “hate against myself” will last, but you words mean a lot, even if I’m not able to express it properly.

So, thank you. Thank you everyone.

Thanks for asking the bear question! A great story and to finally see GA act like she gave a shit?! I would get between a bear and DD/GA, but sometimes their moods/demeanor at cons baffle me. I'm 1st to say they owe us nothing but a good performance-but if they're gonna do it-do it? DD seemed to check out periodically;GA seems wholly uninterested and suffering from amnesia again. Not implying anything, but interesting that she seems to become most animated when telling a David-related anecdote!

You’re welcome, Anon. Regarding demeanor, I think it’s important to realize that there are two kinds of convention appearances that talent does: 1) ones they’re invited to individually, decide to go to, and pocket lots of cash from (doing more signings, photo ops, etc.), and 2) ones they’re contractually obligated to attend as part of promotion/press for a project they’re involved. NYCC was the latter: Presumably FOX flew them in privately, they did press before the panel, did the panel, and more or less got out of Dodge. But they had to be there. I’d also argue that Gillian shows her enthusiasm in other ways. Con panels are definitely not her natural habitat – it’s nerve-wracking to be one’s self in front of 3k people! I do get a kick out of her terrible memory though!

Hi its me again hehehe i just want to tell you that you have a big heart, i really admire you, you have talent, creativity and a very kind person that help the people when they need help! I just want to be like you. Some times feel bad because i think that i don't look atractive for the boys, and i feel bad sometimes because i have never kiss a boy and it's frustairing because i'm going to have 21 years and nothing. The funny thing of this is that now days i'm worry about this types of things

Actually im 27 with nothing to do with men whatsoever, wanna compete in who is the biggest bag of trash? :3 Dont worry child, many of my friends around your age (and same age) have the same concern like you its nothing to be ashame about. Its just really common thought for women to look for a partner and have experience in that area. Its very tempting and fun (I think?), but take your time. If a man for you is what you want, you will have him, I believe the universe will give people what they want the most anyway. For now just enjoy your freedom, who knows, may be the moment is just not right. And who knows again, a lover might bring more trouble than happiness, so just be happy first darling.

Reading what Diana said about S3, LJG and Jamie at Ardsmuir, I'm again reminded of the fact that she never has anything to say about or that she never praises Caitriona. With her it's always about Sam, complementary discussing his incredible talent, physical appearance, etc. It's like Cait isn't part of this whole thing. Does she even understand that Cait carried the 1st year on pure, innate talent and made it possible for the show to succeed? Her indifference to Cait is appauling.

I know. There are many who cringe when she opens her mouth and sometimes I think that Cait is fortunate that Diana doesn’t talk about her much. I do wonder if it has to do with Cait taking the character of Claire and making it her own. Sam has commented that he always emails Diana and asks her questions about Jamie, and he expressed an interesting in finding out how the story ends, while Cait chose not to know. I think that Diana doesn’t really know what to do with a strong woman who can take care of herself. It’s much easier for her to make shallow comments about Sam and praise him for bringing her Jamie to life.

Obviously bello/a/e/i can mean beautiful, pretty, or handsome, but I'm confused by its common use. I see it used a lot to just mean nice or good, I get it sometimes, like how "cantante bella" means "good singer," but what's stopping that from meaning "beautiful singer" as in looks rather than talent? What are all the meanings of bello/bella and how do you tell when it means what?

This is funny because I was literally thinking about that earlier.

In italian, the two meanings sort of overlap, but as you said bello primarily refers to someone’s or something’s beauty, although it can sometimes translate to nice, pleasing in English. So how can you tell the difference? Context.

First of all, I personally wouldn’t use bello to describe a singer. Instead I’d use bravo, meaning nice as in talented, e.g.

  • è un bravo attore (he’s a good actor)
  • è una brava cantante (she’s a good singer)
  • sono veramente brave (they’re really good = talented)

So if you said è un bel cantante I’d think you’re commenting on his appearance.

Usually, we use bello/brutto when talking about the weather, e.g.

  • il tempo è bello oggi (the weather is nice today)

or when expressing wishes, desires, etc, e.g.

  • sarebbe bello se… (it’d be nice if…)

We also use “bello” when talking about inanimate things or thoughts like poems, songs, ideas, analyses, clothes, books, films, personalities, sunglasses, anything, e.g.

  • è una bella canzone (it’s a nice/good song)
  • è una bella idea (it’s a nice idea)
  • ha dei begli* occhi (s/he has nice/very nice eyes)
  • non è bello (it’s not nice)

* the masculine plural of bello becomes begli if the following word starts with a vowel; bei if the following word starts with a consonant, e.g. begli orecchini (nice earrings); bei capelli (nice hair); BUT i tuoi capelli sono belli, i tuoi orecchini sono belli. 

Attention: bello can never mean “nice” as in “kind”; un bel ragazzo does not mean a kind boy; it means “a good-looking boy”. Contrary to that though, una bella persona means “a very good (-hearted) person”.

Tip: you can intesify any adjective (only a few are irregular) by adding the suffix -issimo/i/a/e to the stem. So you’d have bellissimo/i/a/e, which would translate as “very beautiful/nice/good”.

Hope this was helpful! Feel free to send me more grammar-related questions.

au where beacon hills school for ballet is one of the most prestigious ballet schools in the us.  chris gets in on a scholarship after his father tells him he’ll never support his dancing and meets peter, the school’s darling, who just so happens to hate ballet, even though every turn, jump and spin he does is perfect.

chris kind of hates him; as someone who’s had to fight so hard to get to where he is, it’s infuriating to watch peter’s emotionless perfection.  it’s infuriating to see how much he doesn't care when ballet sometimes feels like it’s chris’ lifeblood.  peter, for his part, doesn’t think much of chris either; he might have talent but his technique is all over the place and he has some bad habits that are going to be nearly impossible to train out of him.

but peter doesn’t know about gerard, and chris doesn’t know about the fire, and it’s hard to keep hating someone when in the end they’re all that’s keeping you grounded.

So as I'm not so we informed :what is autism I only know it's some kind of disease or gen-defect like my ADHD (can you call it that ?Cause sometimes it's more a talent I guess )

Well, to start off, it’s not a defect. I can understand why you might think that, but it’s not a defect any more than being able to fold your tongue is a defect. Really, it’s more like a brain-quirk. There’s a lot of different types of autism and everyone experiences it differently so it’s hard to give a definite answer, but I will try.

…Autistic people tend to have trouble with sensory overload. We’re really great at zeroing in on one thing and devoting our whole attention to it, but as a result, we can zero in on annoying things by accident. For example, a lot of autistic people will wear their socks inside out because they’re bothered by the texture otherwise, and if they wore their socks the regular way then they would be forced to pay close attention to the rough feeling on the inside of those socks. Personally, I find it physically painful to be in the same room as someone who is chewing gum because I zero in on the chewing motion of their jaw and if they happen to be the sort who pops their gum a lot OHHHH BOY NOPE.

Now I know what some of you might be thinking. “But TrashQueen. It’s not that weird to be bothered by socks and gum chewing. That’s just regular human quirks. You’re not disabled.” …Yes. I know. But…

Listen… I’m about to blow your mind…

Every mental disorder is just a normal thing taken to an extreme. Yes, even the weird ones. Especially the weird ones.

Anyway, there’s a lot of places that are better equipped to explain autism, and I highly recommend looking some stuff up. All I can tell you is my own personal experiences with it. And personally I wouldn’t choose to be anything else. The fact that I can focus so intently on making good comics is all because I’m autistic. In fact, one of the coolest things about autistic people is our tenancy to specialize in certain topics and just soak up everything there is to know about those topics. It’s how I’m able to keep track of not only my own lore but the lore of other fantasy and sci-fi universes.

Anyway, I hope that was helpful. ouo

anonymous asked:

I randomly found you 😅 I'm recently getting into BTS and I don't know all the members, sorry to ask but would you be willing to give me a rundown of them💕

Okay I’ll give it a shot.

Rap Monster/Rapmon/Namjoon

Leader of bts and possible minion? He’s one of the three members that makes up the rapper line and is the reason bts was formed. He’s like that Dad who thinks he’s cool and wants to be friends with his kids but he just winds up embarrassing them and himself in the process. Sometimes problematic but very talented, very lovable, and very strange. He’s also pretty fluent in English, has an IQ of 148, and is known for making poor fashion decisions.

Suga/Rap God Min Yoongi

Has a tongue that can send you to Hong Kong. He’s the backbone of bts, one of the oldest members, and often called the father or grandpa of the group. He’s very talented and works hard composing songs, writing raps, and keeping the brats of the group in line.  His hard exterior hides a gooey center as he’s actually very sweet and caring (for example, on his birthday he made over 300 personalized gifts for his fans) He’s also very good at basketball, and is the reason the Suga Slut Society was founded.  


The light of bts. J-Hope is the leader of the sunshine line, main/lead dancer, and important member of the rapper line. He also has a really nice singing voice that he should use more often because when he does he fucks everyone up. He’s always happy even when he’s sad and has probably never done anything wrong in his life. He loves Jimin but is often rejected by him because he’s too busy pining after Jungkook  :(


Bangtan’s den mother, dancing machine (he tries), and important member of the vocal line. Is known for his gentle voice, beautiful face, and a kind heart. He has the image of a nice sweet boy on the outside, but he’s secretly a bad bitch. He takes care of the members, cooks, and makes videos where he just eats food and he’s just a real god damn delight. Very under appreciated, everyone needs to love Jin he’s so important. 


Big butt bigger heart. One of  the main/lead vocalists and dancers and is in charge of high notes, body waves, and booty. Sometimes he has abs, sometimes he doesn’t, but he’s a 10/10 either way. He’s part of the sunshine line, is obsessed with Jungkook, and acts like the maknae since Jungkook isn’t very good at it. He is also known for being thoughtful and angelic as well as fucking me up on a daily basis. Simultaneously the light of my life and bane of my existence. 


The actual baby/maknae of the group who tries (and fails) to act cool instead of acting cute. He’s often called the “golden maknae” because he’s good at everything and all of the members want a piece of him. He’s one of the main/lead vocalists but it seems like he wants to be a part of the rapper line. Very talented and versatile. Has been breaking Jimin’s heart since pre-debut :(  


The original cypher slut and true treasure of bts. He’s an important member of both the vocal and and sunshine lines, and is in charge of growling and making me cry. He’s also known for having a 4D personality because you never know what he’s going to do or say and it’s great. And he’s just very sweet and loving and he likes to make an elephant with his arm and he’s just really fucking precious and I don’t know how anyone could not love him.

“Oh,” Atsushi says, watching as their dragonets circle around each other, drawing closer to nuzzle, “I think they like each other.”


“You want to put your banana where?”

Future fic

“I know it sounds like a lot of effort,” Tatsuya mumbles, “but what if you moved your stuff into my apartment and just… stayed?”

First Time

“I want this,” Tatsuya whispers against his lips, biting back his gasp as he sinks down onto Atsushi, “I want this, I want this.”


“It’s cold,” is all Atsushi says by way of explanation, wrapping his jacket around Tatsuya and zipping it up with both of them inside.


“Why don’t we go on a double date with Taiga and—” Tatsuya smiles with amusement as Atsushi hangs up.


“We’ll win next time,” Tatsuya promises, with tears in his eyes, with his hand on Atsushi’s back, “I promise.”


Tatsuya sobs into his pillow, thanking every deity he knows of for Atsushi’s talented tongue.

UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension)

The way Atsushi looks at him leaves him breathless sometimes, like he could eat Tatsuya, and the only thing that Tatsuya can think is, come on then.

7453) Sometimes it's not even about weight anymore, and even though I think I'm huge, when I restrict and fast and purge my weight hardly factors into it. It's the sense of achievement. Like, 'sure, I might not be pretty, or athletic, or talented, and my grades may have gone to shit, but I can stop eating for X days and other people can't!' I feel so fucked up. It's not just about weight anymore. It's about control. It's about feeling like I'm good at something. It's about feeling adequate.

Do you have any tips/strategies to get better at art? Especially to gain a certain wanted style? Because your art is amazing and I love it so much. Literally look up to it. And I feel so discouraged sometimes because I can barely draw anatomy and I don't even have a style. And when I want to draw a certain thing, it never comes out right.... Just bleh. BUT YOUR ART IS SPECTACULAR AND GAH SO BEAUTIFUL

Okay I am the worst person to ask for tips but I always do this creepy thing that helps me draw. So I always commute to work, I take the train for an hour and then walk home for about 30 minutes everyday. I pass by four malls every day to go home so basically, many people to see. The thing is… I stare. I STARE A LOT especially at someone in front of me. It’s usually a guy so that’s even better since I always draw guys. 

So yesterday, a guy was in front of me with really nice hairless legs (dafaq how), holding hands with his girlfriend. I have photographic memory so I tried to memorize his outfit–how his cargo shorts fold and the way his broad shoulders looks so good with that raglan shirt he wore (yes, that’s how creepy I am). So the thing is, I WANT TO DRAW HIS LEGS AND HIS SHOES (i actually sketched it when i got home XD) and that’s where all these drawings of mine usually originate from. From everyday people. 

I know it’s not much of an advice but that’s how it had always worked for me. I see someone doing a great pose/wearing something great, I usually try to remember it. I also look around the display mannequins from clothing stores for outfits to draw (or I sometimes draw my shirts which often happens in my fanarts you guys just dunno but it’s easier that way since I actually get a reference of the folds and stuff) SO. REFERENCE IS GOOD. Better have someone to do it for you, or well, you could do it yourself too if you want! I suck at anatomy back then but making someone model for you HELPS SO MUCH!

It’s hard finding your own art style, I know. It takes a lot of trial and error until you find what you really think fits you best. You should see my previous art which I will shamelessly show. If this thing can turn into this for me… then there is hope. This was four years ago.

I hope you don’t get discouraged because I know that feeling very well, too. Just keep on practicing and say “I’m so gonna be better than them.”  and you friggin will. Even I still have a long way to go. SO. KEEP DRAWING.

Also thank you for loving my art <3 Honestly, i think it’s not really a talent, it’s more like, you’re sharpening something that you’re so passionate about.

Hi Jin! I'm a super big fan of your cosplays uwaahh you're so so gr8 ; u ; (sorry this is embarrassing! xD) I haven't had the chance to catch you in a con, since I just started attending them but to me you seem like a very friendly and charming guy, though part of me thinks you're a bit timid sometimes (for some reason, I imagine you'd be a serene, relaxed type of guy) though with goofy and a little crazy tendancies (in the best way possible!) and incredibly talented and humble. Hehe

Pffff I think my cosplay is pretty average but I’d like to think that maybe people like me for more than that? Maybe I have a “pleasing personality”? Or is it for my humor? Hahah!

People do tend to expect that in person I would be as loud and crazy as the way I write, which I’m often told make my readers laugh so hard they wake other people up. Hahah!

I think that I’m generally quiet and am more of an observer around new people during conventions. But I won’t pass up the chance to photobomb or do out-of-character things when the mood strikes! Or if other people initiate it! Because I’m not sure who would appreciate my weirdness. Hahah!

Here are some GIFs of me and my friends at cons:

Ik that you probably get like ten million asks telling you that you're wonderful and so is your art, and mine is going to just be another one, but, I like to look at your art whenever I'm sad or doubting my own artistic talents because when I see it, I think, "I am a human being, and so are they, and if they can create something this inspiring, I can too." So I just want you to know what your art keeps me going sometimes and I really appreciate it. Thank you for being who you are.


thank you so so much, you’re so wonderful and I hope my art continues to be a source of inspiration to you and please don’t ever give up on your skills :’)

Do you think that drawing is talent or it's just hard work? Because I LOVE TO DRAW and I've been working really hard and yes I see the improvement buuuut sometimes I think I'll never be able to draw like you or some other artists... idk I'm sorry if I'm annoying you but you seem so nice and kind :( And sorry if my English isn't good!

This is a huge subject for me so sorry it took me a while to reply!  I wanted to make sure I had time to answer fully :U

I believe that anyone can draw as long as they’re willing to practice.  I also believe that some people have a stronger inclination to draw, so they’re more willing to practice more. 

What I don’t believe is that people have an innate talent for art that automatically makes them a better artist than the next person (Maybe excluding those prodigy kids you hear about)! They might have a better eye for detail and remembering detail, but they are not inherently better at art than someone else.

If you want to get good at art, you have to practice and you have to learn from other artists, and then practice some more.  I draw for probably a total of 2-3 hours a day, solid (~45 minutes in each of my two art classes, ~1-2 hours at home, and probably a solid 30 minutes of doodling in class if you mash all the little times together.  Doodling is practice too!).  Some people practice even more than that!

I also spend a lot of time looking at other people’s art and learning from the techniques I see them use.  97% of the blogs I follow are art blogs, and tumblr is pretty much the only thing I get on the internet for besides homework.  Therefore, 97% of my internet time is me looking at art and learning from it.  I don’t really play video games or have other hobbies besides art, so when I say “the only thing I do is sleep, eat, go to school, work, and draw”, I’m not lying.  Maybe add reading to the list, but you get the point.

Anyway, TL;DR:  Some people have an eye for detail or a stronger inclination to practice, but a good artist didn’t get that way because of talent.  They work hard for it and practice constantly.  You can be a good artist too–anyone can.

Hi. My name is Kaitlin and I am a 15 year old freshmen at a high school. I get anxiety really bad and I'm also legally blind in both eyes. And the only way that I can calm myself down is to knit I've been knitting for 2 years now and it has been amazing. Sometimes I get really anxious in school though and I don't want people to think I'm weird for knitting. Do you have any suggestions? Like what should I do if they say mean things or give me weird looks? Thanks for the help I love your blog btw!

First of all, Kaitlin, I’m so sorry you suffer badly from anxiety.  I’m happy to hear that knitting works well to combat it, though (I know it does for me!).  

And I’d hope that no one thinks you’re “weird” for knitting in school.  If anything they should be impressed that you have this talent!  I know I am.  

In the interest of full disclosure, my advice to you comes from someone who hasn’t been fifteen years old in several decades, but who was teased mercilessly in middle school (for reasons unrelated to knitting).  To the extent possible, if they do say nasty things to you about your knitting, just ignore them.  Let it roll off your back.  These people are not worth your time, your energy, or your trouble.  Trust me when I say that looking back on this time in your life you will see these bullies for the awful people they really are.  And when you are my age you will roll your eyes — hard, in fact — at the mean things they said to you when you were fifteen.  

Knitting is freaking awesome, and YOU are freaking awesome.  And if certain kids can’t handle all that awesomeness they can go pound sand.

(I’m sorry if this advice comes off as something someone your mom’s age might say.  But it’s heartfelt nonetheless.)

I wish you the best of luck, dear.
