they give me so much joy and hope and all the feels

This time last year, I’d become depressed as everything that was happening in my life at that time had completely overwhelmed me. I’d lost motivation to do anything, giving up on my studies and even eating or sleeping properly. I’d fall asleep so late every night consumed by my thoughts, and I felt so isolated and alone physically and emotionally. I was lost, empty and hopeless.
While I was going through honestly one of the hardest times of my life, I often felt despairing and as though I’d never feel anything but numbness again. But I never gave up hope in Allah, and prayed endlessly for Him to give me peace in my heart.  It literally fills me with so much joy to think about how far I’ve come since then, how much happiness is in my life now, and how much stronger and wiser I am. Alhamdulillah, truly. 

Sorry for being inactive

I have been less posting artworks lately and I apologize for that, especially I knew there are people waiting for the commissions to be done. I assure you I worked on them bit by bit everyday.

Artblock struck me pretty hard this time and I tried to get over it by trying new things and RP my OCs. It seemed to work out so I hope to able to be productive soon. So thank you so much for being patient with me.

Being a swiftie is an ideal that makes me dreaming, and that dream keeps me hoping for a better life. It contributes to building my personal identity and improves my self-esteem. Being a swiftie integrates me to a community where we are united and where I find wonderful friends. You help us during difficult times and you make us feel protected and alive. This passion for you gives me purpose in my life and gives me happiness, gratifications and dreams at fingertips. Your music touches me deeply, because your voice and your lyrics go straight to my heart, because your world come to mine. In what you sing, I hear joys and torments that are or have been mine. Themes that speak to me and resonate in me the experiences I crossed. You helped me grow well and you taught me so much and I’ll always be grateful for all of that.

“People haven’t always been there for me but you always has.”

Whenever I feel lost, hopeless, or sad, I will always come to your blog. You give me hope and peace.

This is something so special to me - this makes me beyond happy. There isn’t a word for the sense of satisfaction and joy I feel, just knowing that I can help out another soul. 

I know, to many, blogs like this are all fun and games and silliness and salt, but I feel like, even something that seems so trite, is truly one thread of a larger fabric of existence. My blog is a haven, my followers are my family and my friends, and I don’t want a single one of them to leave feeling any worse than when they got here. 

Okay, done with the Dalai Lama speech now… but just know, I’m here whenever you need me, for whatever you need. I’ll never leave anyone out in the cold. 


…. A bunch of Reigens! Click to enlarge.

I drew these to cheer me up. These are all my recent random thoughts (lol you can maybe see that I have been alone for two weeks). I wanted to give these thoughts to Reigen to add some hilarity to them. This was so amusing (and oddly therapeutic), this could be my new art project, haha! (I’M SORRY REIGEN!! Now you must suffer the self-consciousness awkwardness and sweating problems. Wait, I guess you already have that latter one)

(Reigen wears a skirt much better than I do tbh)

Hi! Secret Valentine gifter here! How do you feel about crossovers? AU? Your fav AUs/tropes? Things that make you wanna scream in joy?

Oh gosh hello!!! It’s so nice to hear from you, I hope my response to this ask wasn’t very late I haven’t been on much today :”D

I’m not sure about crossovers so much since I’m unsure what fandoms we share and all - the only one that immediately comes to mind is an ATLA/LOK crossover. I’ll just toss out a few of my favorite things to help give you a variety of options, though?

I know for a fact that I absolutely ADORE Texan Keith, it’s honestly my favorite VLD trope haha it cracks me up. Galra Keith with cat features (physical and personality so things like pawed feet and blepping) is a close second, though. I love angst, it’s my favorite genre. One of the things I want most from canon is the tender Sheith Reunion we’ll hopefully get to see in season 2. 

I’ll stop there for now, let me know if there’s any more details you need…I don’t want to make this difficult for you haha I can always think of more!

Also, your asks will be tagged under myvoltronvalentine so you can keep track of them easier!

Happy birthday Jack!! I know it’s a little late now, but I just wanted to say thank you for being there, every day, and always making me smile and laugh and feel better. Your positivity and joy keeps me going, so I hope that your day is full of bossness and as much happiness as you give all of us every day! Hope you like the little Sam I painted, he sits on my wall and reminds me to be a boss every day!


how can i, as a filipinx, ever be happy with any representation of filipinos when all i usually see are light skin, straight hair, petite figured filipinos? when do i learn to quell my disappointment of the lack of filipinos as main characters on television, in books, in movies, in comics, and the ones that are, and usually from the philippines, are so far removed from who i am? how do silence my frustration when i know that my people come in all shades of brown but i have yet to see a brown filipino represent me anywhere? i’m learning so much about my people’s history, trying to reclaim what it means to be filipino, trying everyday to learn languages i can only vaguely comprehend–so how can i ever find joy when i know my people have become so alienated amongst ourselves that we hate one another and go out of our communities to find an escape from these problems? 

i think being filipino is so wonderful because my people inspire me and give me hope but this realization only goes so far when i realize how far we’ve fallen and how much more we have to work to get where we want to be…

You know, I love being nonbinary

I love being asexual.

I love that even though I don’t fully understand my romantic orientation, I can relate with a lot of what people say about theirs.

I love my cute face, so long as I don’t smile.

I love my friends and the support they give me despite my troubles.

I love every single one of my followers and the joy they can provide to even others.

I love that even though I don’t feel worthy, you all bless me with your kind words and your love.

I love you.

I love my life. I love my life. I love my life.

I love who I’ve become, even though I totally thought if be somewhere else by my age.

I love me.

I hope you understand. And I wish that each and every one of can love yours and love you.

Take care of yourselves. You are powerful and amazing in your own right.

This is going to be pretty simple and straightforward because Iโ€™ve already done a really elaborate one of these before. But the fact of the matter is that Iโ€™ve never had a blog thatโ€™s made me feel so strongly as my Natasha has. My little sassassin is just this bundle of perfection and writing her gives me so much joy. Iโ€™ve also never had this many people following me and I never expected it but appreciate every one of you !!ย 

If I forget anyone itโ€™s just because this has all been very overwhelming and not because I donโ€™t love you !! Now, Iโ€™ll put this under a cut so it doesnโ€™t get super long on your dashboards, but I do want to say a giant THANK YOUย for following me. Youโ€™re the reason I keep writing Nat and I appreciate you so much and I hope you too keep writing and creating.ย
