still need to use this on someone

im looking at you rpc

stop making graphic commissions if you don’t have permission to use those resources. With resources I mean fonts, textures, stocks etc. This is SPECIFICALLY meant for those who ask real money for their graphics.

No, I don’t care about the whole “BUT I NEED MONEY” because it’s not an excuse. You can still be a decent person and ask for a permission if that’s what you need. In most of the cases these people say it’s okay to use their resources free for PERSONAL use but NOT FOR SELLING. Usually, these makers ask for some type of payment if you’re using them to make money. You can’t just go to google, pick a picture you like and use it in a graphic someone is paying for.

DO YOUR RESEARCH. MAKE SURE THE MAKER ALLOWS THOSE RESOURCES BEING USED THAT WAY.

Why do I care so much you might wonder?? because the people who make these things shouldn’t be taken for granted. Making fonts, textures and stocks might be a way for someone to earn their money. And whenever you’re taking them without even reading their rules on how you can use them, YOU ARE HURTING THEM. ONCE THEY NOTICE YOU’RE TAKING SHIT FROM THEM FOR FREE TO SELL THEM THEN THEY MIGHT STOP MAKING THESE RESOURCES.

Not only that but it’s a legal thing too. You don’t just go to some store and instead of grabbing the free sample, you take the whole product that you’re supposed to pay for.

Be decent to fellow content makers. Please.

one word spells

As long as you can focus your energy and set your intention your spell should work, so I’ve designed these 5 spells using just one word for a Witch who needs a quick fix.

Mariquil

Pronounced mar-e-quil

Used to calm a temper or an upset person. From the latin word for sea, mare, and the english word tranquil. Essentially you are calling the sea inside them to be still. For better results cast with wet hands.

Univert

Pronounced Uni-var

Used for faster transport. I use it at the train station to have a shorter wait time but really its designed for traffic lights. By combining uni from universe and vert,the french word for green, you’re essentially asking the universe to make your path green.

Visididen

Pronounced Vis-e-did-en

Used to go unnoticed or invisible. Taken from the english words vision and hidden. For best results chant it softly while visualising yourself turning transparent.

Lapagna

Pronounced Lap-ag-na

Used when you just need someone to shut the f**k up but are too polite to say so. Taken from the Latin words lapis and magna, meaning stone and voice. For best results hold a stone or some earth while casting, if they’re really pissing you off just throw the stone or dirt at them.

Bavarignis

pronounced Bav-are-ig-ni

Used to strike up a conversation or to continue a conversation. Taken from the French word bavarder, which means chat, and the Latin word ignis, which means fire. Basically you’re asking for the conversation to spark or catch fire. For best results flick a lighter in your pocket or light a match.

Still Alive

In regards of the recent election results, I feel like this preformance and this specific character need to be talked about. 

Leo De La Iglesia, the skater who represents America, is a a Mexican-American man. The man who represents America during the most important skating competitions in the show is someone who has been discriminated by the recently elected American president himself. 

Leo is skating to the song “Still Alive”, which is obviously a song about how despite all the harships in life, it’s imporant to always have something to hold onto that keeps you positive, in order to stay alive during the difficult times. 

The fact that a Mexican-American man skates to a song like this, on the day that it was revealed that a man who has been nothing but discriminating, and an utter racist, against Mexicans has been elected as the new president of America, is so heartwearming. And I almost feel as if this is a sign, and a way of the series to show that no matter where you are from, and no matter what your ethnicity/nationality is, and no matter how much you are being discriminated against, even by your own president, your dreams are valid and you are capable of doing increddible things. It’s almost as if the scene where Leo skated to this song, was a message to all the Mexican Americans to hold on to their hopes, to stay alive and to always stay strong, no matter what.

This is so important.

“Yes, of course we still love her, and we’re always thinking of her…”

“I know you both needed someone who knows what you’re going through…”

like, i get that some people are not comfortable with the word queer. i fluctuate on how comfortable i am with using the word queer! i am from a small town in the south of the u.s. with a high population of people 65+ where using the word queer in a derogatory manner is still live and well. when i got to college and heard the phrase “queer theory” for the first time i was like…what the fuck

but like…u don’t need to add a reminder that some people don’t like to be called queer every time someone makes a post about self-identifying as queer. like, do you know how many posts i see where OP is like “haha yeah i ID as queer because it’s easier than saying i’m an aromantic pansexual” and some pancake feels the need to come out of the woodwork like “I GUESS THAT’S FINE OR WHATEVER BUT DON’T CALL MEEEEEE QUEER” ????? like ??? they weren’t ???? chill out ??????????

by all means if someone calls you queer n you’re not comfy with that tell them to stop…but damn….don’t act like all queer identifying people are running around with a handheld label maker trying to put QUEER stickers on the foreheads of unsuspecting LGBT youth

SO TO GODDAMN FUCKING RECAP

Guy tweets homophobic thing at Brad Marchand, and uses the f slur

Brad calls him out, says there are a lot of people that word hurts and he should be ashamed.

guy deletes tweet and pretends it never happens

BRAD RETWEETS A SCREENSHOT OF THE HOMOPHOBIC TWEET SAYING “YOU’RE NOT GETTING OFF THAT EASY”

like imagine if al the NHL Players gave this much of a shit. Like Brad did not need to do that FOR ANY REASON it’s probably a PR nightmare and he doubled down on it. He called out a fan and i’m sure the NHL hates that shit and Brad is still like DOUBLE CALL OUT. and for once someone is risking shit to protect us. This is how you ally. you do it even when it could detriment you and you do it with conviction.

What’s the deal with T and pregnancy?

Someone asked us:

If I take testosterone (as a trans man) could I still get pregnant and carry a child to term?

Yup, you can definitely get pregnant. While taking testosterone can have an impact on fertility, it’s not birth control, so pregnancy is definitely still possible as long as you still have your uterus and ovaries.

If you get pregnant while you’re taking testosterone, contact your doctor or nurse right away. If you want to carry the pregnancy to term, you’ll need to stop taking testosterone until after you give birth.  

If you’re taking testosterone and you know you want to become pregnant, tell your nurse or doctor  so you can get the healthiest start to your babymakin’. They can help you come up with a plan to prepare for pregnancy.

its been so long but im still trying to figure out how you could go from “i love you” to “i don’t care about you anymore” in such a short amount of time

Someone pausing still frames of SU, intentionally gathering the least attractive ones and using it as Concrete Evidence that the show is “terrible” tells me one thing and one thing only:

-how much someone knows jackshit about animation because you can literally pause any piece of Western animation, no matter how highly regarded, and find “bad” or “funny looking” frames. it’s also easy to intentionally leave out all the good qualities of said show to fit your half-baked argument just because you don’t personally like it and need to make it look as bad as possible

following this logic, by default, I guess all these shows and movies are terrible too

so much sapphic positivity is focused on relationships, but not all of us have that in our lives, so here’s to the single sapphics. whether you’re pining after a certain girl, or don’t have anyone in your life. whether you desperately want a relationship, feel neutral towards romance, or are loving being single. you are sapphic no matter what and your relationship status does not define you. you are going to be okay

Energy Work: Introduction to Fields Exercise


I want to start sharing more of my energy practice, here, and felt the best way to start doing that was to post an “introductory primer”. This meditation is designed to familiarize you with energy and its tactile properties. You can get some use out of this exercise regardless of your experience level (I still practice it, today), and it’s a great entry point for someone who’s never even dabbled before. All you’ll need to enjoy it is a comfortable, quiet place where you’re unlikely to be disturbed for roughly 30 minutes.

Tip: Don’t try to follow along with this text as you perform the exercise. Instead, read it in its entirety before you begin. This way, you can avoid the distraction of scrolling or flipping pages during your meditation. That will kill your focus dead.

Step 1:

To begin, sit or stand in a comfortable position. Shake yourself out, paying particular attention to your shoulders and wrists. Do this until you feel loose and relaxed.
Now, take a deep breath in, filling your lungs to the largest capacity possible. Hold the breath for a count to three, then exhale slowly, through your mouth. Concentrate on your breathing for as long as necessary to make it deep, slow and even. As you inhale, focus on the weight in the middle of your chest. Feel all the tension leave your body as you exhale. Draw your focus inwards, and feel your pulse as it travels through your body. Be still, quiet, and whole. Remain here until you are grounded and focused.

Step 2:

When you feel relaxed and grounded, raise your arms so that your elbows are up and away from your body. With your hands open, turn them so that your palms are facing each other in front of you. The palms of your hands should be roughly one foot apart, and one foot away from the core of your body.Feel your focus slowly travel from your chest, to your shoulders, and down through your arms. Sweep it down past your elbows and wrists until you are focusing on the palms of your hands. You may notice a tingling sensation, or a hyper awareness, in your fingers. Push this feeling out until you are focused on the space between your palms. 

The keyword is ‘push’. Feel a pressure building up between your hands; focus until that pressure is a dense weight.

Step 3:

With your attention still on the space between your palms, physically push them together. You should feel a slight resistance, or “bounce”. Bring your hands together and back apart rhythmically, getting a feel for that resistance. Play with the energy you have gathered there, growing it, condensing it, passing it back and forth between your hands. Get a feel for its properties. This is “you” energy. Get to know it. Take as long as you need.

Step 4:

When you are finished, draw your hands back towards the trunk of your body. Press the tension you have built up against your chest and “breathe” it back in until nothing is left externally.

Repeat the earlier breathing exercise — inhale deeply, hold for three seconds, and slowly exhale through your mouth. Focus on your breathing until it is deep and regular. Bring your focus from your hands, back to your chest. Feel the weight there.

Slowly, begin rolling your shoulders. Roll your head on your neck, and shake out your arms, dispersing any tension. Shake your wrists and hands until they are loose and free. Feel yourself slowly wake from the deep relaxation you enjoyed earlier.

When you’re finished, engage in some mundane grounding activity, such as washing up, eating, or drinking. You might enjoy journaling your experiences so that you can reference them later on.

Thinspo and Social Media

The thing about our generation is that social media is a true and valid form of self-expression. It connects people with similar interests or going through similar circumstances to talk, share, and bond over this commonality.

This is a beautiful thing! Let people express themselves!

Now for thinspo blogs: it seems like we’re promoting eating disorders, but 99.99999% of us would still have an eating disorder with or without this blog. And 99.99999% of us did not start having an eating disorder because we ran across thinspo one day while on tumblr. And 99.99999% of us would not tell someone else to starve or overexercise or purge. We don’t want this for anyone else.

I, personally, love and appreciate all bodies. Thin, fat, short, tall… I just personally, want to be thin. Just because I reblog pics of thin girls does not mean I’m saying everyone should/needs to be thin. I do it because it’s what I want for myself and this is my outlet for expressing that.

My thinspo blog is an outlet for me to express what I’m going through. I can express this while seeing other people express the same/similar feelings that I have and can relate to. This is really great for me to cope with this disorder because it makes me feel less alone.

More starter sentences.

This time with a more formal language style.

  • “You do not own me. I am not your property.”
  • “How do I know you have not lied to me?”
  • “You will always regret your inactions the most.”
  • “The choice to do nothing is still a choice.”
  • “I cannot take your pain away, but I can help ease it.”
  • “Tell me what you need from me. I’ll give you anything.”
  • “War is Hell, and it never ends.”
  • “Soldiers don’t want to kill anyone, but they have to.”
  • “You love someone else, don’t you?”
  • “I never thought we’d ever have to say goodbye to one another.”
  • “Of all the people in my life, I loved you most.”
  • “Is it really acceptable to torture, maim or kill in the name of the greater good? Or does that make us like our enemies?”
  • “I do not fear death. I made my peace with mortality a long time ago.”
  • “You do not fear death. You would welcome it. I see it in your eyes, when you think no-one is looking. You’re waiting for it to catch up with you.”
  • “There are no (men/women/people) like me.”
  • “Tell me something interesting.”
I think I only loved you out of loneliness.
I was so lonely that when you entered my life and showed the smallest signs of interest, I convinced myself that you were everything that I ever wanted.
But that wasn’t true.. you were never a blessing and you never loved me, I just kept convincing myself you did.
and I think I did it because I needed to have some one love me. I needed to feel the presence of another person. I needed someone to want to be here with me.
God, being alone use to scare the fuck out of me, sometimes it still does.. but now I’m more scared of love, or fake love, or whatever the fuck we had, if it was even anything at all.
the truth is, you were never the person I saw. You were never actually good enough for me and I realize that now. I mean, I looked at you as if you could move mountains, I really thought you were like the entire universe wrapped up into a person. But you were never like that. I made up things in my head, the way you looked at me was never real, the way you talked about me was never genuine. It was as if I didn’t even exist to you… Thats not love.
You leave me out for days then come back when I’m finally over it just to remind me that your still here. And I told myself that was okay. I told myself we loved each other. I just kept making excuses for you when you never asked me to, when you never even cared to apologize.
And i see it all now. I see how stupid I was to think that any of that meant that you cared.
But I just wanted to love you. I wanted you to love me. I wanted to feel something. i wanted to have someone, because any one is better than no one.
and in the end, I can’t even blame you. you never pretended to love me, I only convinced myself you did. everything was in my head. It was all out of loneliness. I broke my own heart loving you. I saw who you were from the beginning, I just wanted to love someone so badly and you were here. It wasn’t always pleasant, but you were here.
—  I’m more afraid of loving than I am of being alone now. 

Here we are again.
Avoiding eye contact in crowded places.
Weaving in and out of strangers
with gray eyes and nameless faces.

There you go again.
Drinking anything to not be sober.
Looking for someone that you can bring home,
in hopes to fill out the voids
that you’ve written my name all over.

Over and over again.
When you start making noises in your sleep,
I hope he pulls you closer.
Close enough to hear you curse my name,
because i’m still the biggest demon you keep.


And on the very few nights that you actually do go home alone, I hope thoughts of us consume you, so much that you need to finish bottles just to rest.

—  Loving you was shit.
I hope times are hard for you.
