tags of advice i guess

So something I see a lot in headcannons and fic  that I feel like a lot of people probably wouldn’t know: If at all possible, a therapist will never work with two friends/two people in a relationship/two people who even know each other well knowingly. It’s a conflict of interest, the therapist is then biased, and it could make the clients way less likely to discuss that interpersonal relationship in sessions which can become super problematic.

What’s more likely: Person A will say to their therapist “I have a friend who struggles with these issues, do you know of any colleagues that have experience with this?” and pass on the info their therapist gives them to Person B so that they can make calls and figure out what’s best for them. It’s fairly likely that they’ll try 2 or 3 therapists till they find one that clicks.

new goal: have my new blog habitable and ready for me to move in before i get my wisdom teeth out next week on the 30th

I keep foam stickers in my backpack to give to people who I think need or deserve one and they’re very colorful and I have an assortment of not only aliens but also dinosaurs and like as silly as it sounds I genuinely want to mail one of those stickers to Dan like I dunno if it would help but he could have a little purple dinosaur or a little green alien to stick on his fridge or whatever and I think that’s always a nice thing

Dan if you’re reading this go buy some foam dinosaur/alien stickers and put them on ur fridge like it’s definitely not gonna solve any of your problems but it’ll look super silly and you’ll feel like a seven year old and it’ll be great I promise trust me on this one I’m a scientist

an art advice (that i do myself) is don’t copy and make as ur own the style of other artist, but DO implement some hints of it, copying and reference/inspiration are different things, if you want to make a drawing based on someone’s art, yes, do it! (and source it, also ask the artist if they’re ok with it (if it’s an amateur artist, professionals is other thing)) but not make that your only and main style (important: some artist find that uncomfortable)

see your favorite artist’s pieces and think, what did i liked abt it? absorb it, study it, get inspired, you liked the pose they made in that drawing? you can trace it (and keep it to yourself, never claim other person’s art as yours) and try to understand it, trace does work for undertstanding things, but never use trace in your art, that sucks 

idk if this is understandable at all, i’m an artist that learns by looking/studying art in general
