I alternate between drawing the Batter with hair and without as the picture demands and I was talking to my sister about it once and she’s pretty sure he’s bald and while that makes sense I still picture what he’d look like if you removed his hat then and I’m just like
If you ever thought of killing yourself, please don’t
You matter a whole lot more than you realize, even if you are alone. You got friends online who care about you, I CARE ABOUT YOU. Even if we’re strangers talking through a plastic screen, I care about you more than you know. Too many people take their lives away day by day, I don’t want that happening to you as well.
Your life matters, everyones’ lives matters. You all matter. No matter who you are, where you came from, YOU MATTER. If you ever feel like your life doesn’t matter a single dime, PM me and I’ll talk to you RIGHT NOW. Tell me how you feel, I want to know. I’ll be that one person who will listen if everything seems like it is falling apart.
Just know, I love all of you.
Reblog this to spread this post to let your friends and followers know that you care about them, even they may not be mutuals. I want everyone to know that they are loved.
It sometimes looks like someone taking an image you drew, poorly scrubbing off the text, replacing the text with an unapproved translation, and slapping their logo on it.

the classics civ. kid: the lonesome first year or sophomore who has never studied greek but is overly eager to learn. loves Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, readi Oedipus in 12th grade english, and obsessed over Percy Jackson in elementary school. probably an english or psychology major. they are taking this class to see if they could handle a major; will probably not take it in the spring semester. an all around stand up guy/gal
the premed: thought AP Euro was a fun class in high school; probably wanted to be indie and not do something as mainstream as latin. in it to fulfill the uni’s language requirement. does chemistry/bio homework in class; will call you at 3am to ask about a prepositional phrase
the latin major: studied latin in high school, in a spoken latin class now; learns the decelension by comparing them to latin. loudly complains about greek accent rules and cant pronounce for shit. asks lots of questions about the linguistics of indoeuropean languages on day 1. is taking the class to fulfill their greek requirement in the department; super annoying but nice and will help you remember vocab
the double major: wants to major in classics and something STEM. would probably rather be just a classics major but their parents want them to be practical. messes up on accents continuously. loves Plato. procrastinates on everything. shows up to study groups with a list of questions
the religious studies major: quiet person, super nice. tried to teach themself over the summer, got halfway through the alpha decelension and realized they should just take the class. will organize study groups using New Testament passages as examples. everything they do is helpful
the classics major TM: probably calls every dead greek their “1 tru fav.” has a strong opinion for or against latin; worships their greek textbook and every word out of the professor’s mouth. probably loves homer to a worrisome degree. makes quizlets. spends too much time memorizing every rule and exception instead of doing the homework. signs emails with “χαῖρε”
