my thoughts are clouded with ‘almost’s and ‘what if’s

i still think that the most german thing is not beer or brezeln, in my opinion its asparagus time because in which other country do you have like 80million people eating tons of aspargus nonstop, without ever taking a break for weeks on end. like we literally celebrate asparagus season with meeting up to eat our beloved Spargel and Spargel only.. and Idk but if thats not the most german thing than i dont know what it

Please read!

I’m sad. I’m not okay. I’m upset and heartbroken.

But to be fair, the contact that Camila had signed ended. Her contractual obligations to the group ended and the contract offered her an exit for when the contract expired.

We all know how restrictive and controlling their contracts were and how they didn’t have much control over anything. It would’ve been hard for all 5 of the girls to have the dreams and careers of the other 4 resting in the palm of their hands.

Imagine if 1 was exhausted and wanted to take a break from performing and have a few weeks or months off. They couldn’t. Because then they would be putting the careers of the other 4 girls on the line. So they would just have push through it. Go past their limits.

Think about it…when she had her horrific anxiety, it was the same year she turned 18 (the legal age of consent) and wasn’t protected from Management and the Label by the Child Labor Laws. Yes, she was restricted and controlled before that, but once she turned 18, her contract went into full motion. Management and the Label could use her fully and do what they want with her  without the need of consent from her parents.

In all honesty, yes I am sad. Fifth Harmony was a big reason why I got through my depression. But I want Camila to be happy. And if her contract was up and it offered her an exit and if she knew that leaving now would be best for her and her health and if she knew she would be happier…then I’m okay. I just want her to be healthy and happy.

And she’ll probably have more control over her career and the music she’ll make.

Hopefully she’ll take a few months off and relax and spend time with her parents and especially her sister Sofia. Make up for the time she lost and missed with her when she was traveling and Sofia was growing up.

I’m still going to love and support Camila and I’m still going to love and support Ally, Dinah, Lauren and Normani. The 5 of them have achieved a lot these past 4 and a half years. They’ve made history multiple times this year alone, they were named the greatest girl group of the decade, and they’ve made fans that will last a lifetime.

They should be proud.

- Love, a true Harmonizer ❤️

everytime someone criticizes an art style of a show i just have to sit silently as, I–an animator–know art inconsistencies happen. Even in anime–esp since the animators are rushed for time.

Have u guys seen the sailor moon reboot (left) versus the blue-ray where they had more time in the world to fix their shit (right)?

imagine if your teacher was like “okay 12 page essay analyzing the all of the symbolism and metaphors in Shakespeare’s Hamlet” due tonight before midnight. You’d rush through the whole hecking thing–you’ve never read hamlet your entire life–you’d sparknote that shit–it’d be the saddest paper you’d ever turn in you’d probably get flagged down for grammar/syntax errors and plagiarism. That is what the networks are like to animators.

“But they get breaks so they have no excuse” It takes a week to animate 6-10 seconds, on “breaks” between new episodes is when they’re most likely working on new episode animation and most likely when a network has them on a deadline.

Alex Hirsh had to sleep under his desk when he directed gravity falls. What people fail to realize is that it’s A LOT OF WORK. If there’s art inconsistencies don’t blame the animators–blame the network big guys who give them no time to get a project done!  Can they go and fix it? Most of the time, no.  Would they go back and fix it if we could? Probably!!! What’s stopping them from fixing it? Keeping their jobs. Turning in something is better than nothing. And let’s not forget that most american animation is exported and done in korea, so on top of story-boarding they have to send it overseas so that animators can work on it. It’s a long process.

Don’t blame mistakes on what the big guys up there tell animators to get done.Things go wonky all the time especially if we’re rushed, that’s a human thing that happens. Ever been in a overly-busy Starbucks and they got your drink order wrong? Same situation. What Networks need to do is be more flexible on artists so that they can get their shows animated quality over quantity–not the other way around. But they have a schedule and they want things done quick–unfortunately. And that sucks for animators.

THIS POST IS NOT MEANT AS A BRAG BUT I'M FUCKING CHUFFED AS HECK SO APOLOGIES BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU ALL HOW PROUD I AM OF MYSELF AND IT FEELS NICE

Today was my last day of my job, and I am so sad!! Maybe you can make this into less of a braggy wank fest by telling me about the last time you proved yourself!!

For those who didn’t follow my ever so exciting life, for the past 3 months I have been working as the cashier on a TV drama. I was responsible for all the cash that went through the production - all £35k of it! - and keeping track of everyone’s expenses, prop sales and so on. I’ve never done a job this big before, and I was incredibly nervous going into it. I considered turning the job down, as those who saw my initial panic will know, because I felt out of my depth and like I was too inexperienced. I felt like an impostor, basically.

In the first month, the assistant accountant quit, and suddenly the Accounts department consisted of two people: me and the lead accountant. Almost immediately, I was also doing invoices and shit (we accountant sorts call this AP, for Accounts Payable, because acronyms aren’t just cool street slang). Also a pay rise. Solid.

Today, I returned all the leftover cash to the bank and discovered that I’d kept accurate track of the cash to the absolute penny. That’s a fucking miracle; I was doing two jobs, working 6 days a week, 11 hours a day, and I didn’t screw it up. I’d been so nervous going into this job, feeling like I was going to cock it up spectacularly and be fired on day one, and I knocked it out of the goddamn park.

I worked my arse off, got shouted at by a mildly famous actor, drank more Cup-a-Soup than is recommended by any doctor, laughed until I cried about BRENDA THE AGENT WHO IS NOT OK, and it was brutal, and I’ve had no life at all for 3 months (hence my absence on here, although I’m also still lacking a computer) and I feel VERY PROUD AND EMOTIONAL because I’ve had so many people tell me today that I’m underselling myself and could do bigger jobs as a second assistant accountant if I wanted to, and that I am capable and competent, and that they want to work with me again, and omg????? I cried???? So much?????

And now I’m unemployed and what the fuck do I do now with all this free time

10.17.16 • it has been a whirlwind for me lately! This spread is from back in September and I just never got around to posting it. I had the busiest September ever because I volunteered for my city’s fashion week, and I had a bunch of homework. Anyway I’m back in the swing of things with my bullet journal after taking a break for a couple of weeks!
