this is my lowest of the low

Artist friends, let me just tell you a thing. FUCK Wacom. Fuck Wacom and their planned obsolescence, fuck Wacom and their broken drivers, fuck Wacom and their over-priced tablets. For years we’ve dealt with them with no alternatives but let me tell you a thing.

I recently found out my Intuos 4′s Pen had broken and rather than spend £60-89 for a new one I decided to get a new tablet. Now, I could get the new “Intuos” (which is just the re-branded Bamboo) and i was going to until I found this beast.

This is the Huion  H610, it has almost twice the drawing space of the low-end Intuos and double the pressure levels. The one and only negative is that the pen requires a battery.

Not only that, it is larger than my Intuos 4 which I paid £150 for back in the day. Know how much this cost? £55. The same as the basic Intuos.

I am in LOVE with this thing. Let’s compare this with the lowest of the low end Wacom Intuos line.

                             Intuos          Huion

Active Area:     6 by 3.7 in    10" x 6.25"

Pressure Levels:  1024            2048

Hard Input Res:  2540 LPI      4000 LPI

Express Keys:          4                   8


Not to mention the Intuos is HIDEOUS with buttons that are in incredibly awkward places.

The fact that a £55 matches and exceeds the £150 Intuos 4 I bought years ago speaks worlds. And do you know what the very final nail in the coffin is?

THE DRIVERS. ACTUALLY. WORK.

It’s time Wacom had some real competition in the market, if you’re looking for a new tablet please consider a Huion over a Wacom. I used to be a Wacom fanboy too but now?

Here is the H610 on Amazon UK and Amazon US.

All I can find is good reviews on this thing and people doing the same thing I am doing, trying to convince people it’s worth it. So… You have the information, use it as you will.

Making dried orange peel!
These can be used for baths, hot teas or ciders, potpourri, or witchcraft! The process is extremely simple, and makes the entire house smell nice and fresh (which is also a good way to cleanse and banish negative energies in the home, as I’ve noticed). You can also do this with lemons, it’s the same process and the same usage!

The process:
-Get a large amount of healthy oranges with unblemished skin. Be sure to wash the oranges and scrub them lightly, because they are often coated with lots of germs and pesticides, which you REALLY don’t want on your dried product!

-Peel them however you wish, I find it easier to peel the entire orange in a giant coil shape, and then cut that coil to whatever sized pieces that I want my end result to be. Keep in mind that bigger pieces will be easier to strain out of whatever you use these in, so shaving them extremely tiny isn’t very convenient.

-Set your oven to it’s lowest setting, preferably around 200°. Place an aluminum foil sheet over a cookie tray, and generously arrange your peels on the foil. You don’t have to wait until the oven is completely heated, just stick them in there.

-The key is to expose them to low heat for a long period of time, which I’ve estimated to be about an hour and a half. Turning up the heat higher in an attempt to make the process faster will result in a few scorched pieces instead of lightly browned and crisped. You’ll know they’re ready when you can pinch one in the middle and it won’t give at all. Don’t be afraid to stir them around a bit so they all can get even amounts of heat exposure.

-While you’re waiting for them to finish, you can cut open the peeled oranges, and either juice them or slice them for eating!

Voila, now you know what to do with those orange rinds that people often throw away! 😊

studying with adhd!! ✨🌈

before we begin: i have mostly hyperactive type adhd & these tips have worked for me! i cant promise they will 100% work for u & maybe they will work even if u dont have adhd. but again, i went from a c-student to an a-student with these, so if you think they sound helpful, give them a shot :-)

🍁 make a checklist of what you need to study before anything else. as you gather your materials, refer back to this list. once you have everything on the list, double check: is there anything else you need? check again. keep your supplies within reach

 🍁 try to have a large study space so you can spread out! try the floor, a kitchen counter, or even your bed. this way, even if you’re messy, you can just shove what you don’t need to the side because…

 🍁 only keep what youre currently working on in front of you. people with adhd need simplicity to minimize extra steps in their thought process (extra steps lead to distractions, forgetfulness, and potentially executive dysfunction)

 🍁 don’t force yourself into pomodoro cycles - work in “shifts” while taking breaks and using ur hyperfocusing powers :-) working in shifts means that the minute you get bored of working on one assignment, shift to another. when you get bored of that one, shift back to the first. if you get overwhelmed or suddenly unbelievably unmotivated, take a break to breathe - when you get bored of breathing, back to work! do ur best not to burn urself out by working too long, but if you feel yourself hyperfocusing, don’t break your focus by forcing yourself to stop

 🍁 prioritize! this is a huge problem for us - we try to do 30 things and finish 1. it’s incredibly frustrating to feel like you are working harder than anyone but getting the lowest results. the secret is prioritization (which goes along with simplicity)! write down three things you have to get done. do those. do you have extra time? pick two more things to do. done? finish your study session with one last, low-priority and low-stress task

 🍁 rubber bands, bracelets, erasers, rubix cubes, and stress balls are my favorite things to fidget with when i dont have my spinner. i personally can’t concentrate in chairs that spin, but walking around while reading my notes aloud helps me. 

 🍁 if you really really cannot physically bring yourself to do homework, watch a tv show that youve watched a million times before as you do it. 

🍁 take interactive notes! if you take messy notes with a lot of gaps at school and rewriting them isnt an option for whatever reason: write your messy lecture notes on the left half of the page. at home, highlight main ideas from the left side. on the right half, fill in any blocks of information you missed using youtube/textbook/other resources. avoid extensive colorcoding because…

 🍁 colorcode when youre studying for your exams! make a box next to each main topic and check off when you are done with it. highlight questions/whatever you wish as you read through your notes to stop passive learning. 

 🍁 take it easy on yourself! adhd isn’t a curse, but it does make it difficult to do a lot of things that school requires to do “well.” sometimes you won’t be able to understand information as quickly, or you’ll forget to turn in your homework. you are doing your best, and that can be just passing a class or finishing one worksheet. youre doing great & you will succeed! 

Low Spoon Spirit Work/Companion Tips

12 Spirit Work Tips for people with low spoons, or just anyone who doesn’t have as much energy at the moment.

Tip #1 -Look at the stars with them

I really love to look at the stars with my companions. It is amazing after a hectic or stressful day to just sit outside and think about nothing with my spirit family.

Tip #2 -Watch Tv

Seriously just sit down, and decide on a show together. Ro is a huge fan of Peaky Blinders on Netflix, so I always try to watch at least an episode of it when I can with him.

Tip #3 -Find a YouTuber they enjoy

Ro is a big fan of beauty gurus and Archie likes to watch horse videos with me. Hyl seems to like when I binge watch music videos. There is something for every companion on youtube.

Tip #4 -Hum to music together

I love to sing but sometimes I don’t have enough energy to. I usually just hum while laying down if I can’t sing right then.

Tip #5 -Write a story with your spirit companion as a character.

I’m currently working on a story with both Archie and Ro in it and Hyl is gonna make an appearance in one of my other story’s. For me writing is super relaxing and low energy.

Tip #6 - Draw a Doodle of them

I doodle anyways so just channeling a little energy into what my companions might look as a doodle isn’t a huge thing. (This is a bit more high energy and is only for when I feel a little better than normal.)

Tip #7 -Cuddle them

My all time freaking favorite. This is the lowest of all the energy things. Its also pretty self explanatory.

Tip #8 - READ BOOKS!!!

Can you tell I like reading with my companions? Hyl and I bond over reading literally every day.  

Tip #9 -Write a letter

Pour out your feelings, hopes and dreams in this letter and then show it to them. Also one can try channeling with their companion to receive a letter from the companion.

Tip #10 -Write a poem

If you are an artistic person or like writing poems this one is for you people that are blessed with an awesome vocabulary. Also you could write one line of the poem and they can write the next line.

Tip #11 -Play Hot&Cold

Try to feel their energy and use how your body responds as a way to detect them when they are nearby. It is super easy to turn this into a fun and entertaining game.

Tip #12 -Twenty Questions

Use a twenty questions app to learn things about them that you might not ask them yourself.

Sorry if this post seemed a little lackluster. I really had to push myself to finish it… Low spoon problems. Anyways I hope someone finds this helpful. Thanks for reading.

Favorite Adam moments

It’s Adam Parrish’s birthday and since he’s a character that has made me bite my fingernails and yell at the page and grin like an idiot and maybe even get a moist eye or two (this despite being spoiled to his ending), here are some of my favorite Adam moments in (I think) chronological order:

This…is Quik-Cleanse.

I am, at my core, a witchy person forever in search of low-spoons ways to woo. This is probably one of the lowest-spoons things I’ve ever done. The way I use it, is I either mist it over the area that needs cleansing, or else spray it on a rag and wipe down whatever surface I want to clean up. 

A word of warning, though: Don’t use this on any surface that can be damaged by salt water, because that’s mostly what it is.

You need:

  • A spray bottle. I got mine for $1 at the Dollar Tree.
  • Salt. This is also easily available at the dollar store.
  • Water. Generally available from a tap.
  • A quartz crystal small enough to fit in the spray bottle. I got mine from my boyfriend, the crystal king. You can use other crystals or stones, but be sure that they are safe in contact with salt water and won’t be damaged or rendered toxic.

I also threw in some of the eclipse water I made during the solar eclipse.

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Pour some salt into the spray bottle, using a funnel if necessary. I made a funnel out of a spare sheet of paper.
  2. Drop in the quartz crystal.  
  3. Fill the spray bottle with hot water, cap it, and shake it around to dissolve the salt.
  4. Bless/dedicate the bottle for cleansing and purification in your preferred manner.

That’s it! Enjoy your quik-cleanse!

He’s moved on. As much as I hate to hear those words, I know it’s true. But you know what sucks is that he’s the only person who has seen me at the lowest of low and still chose to stay with me. He has seen all my flaws and loved each one. How am I suppose to let that go? Seems impossible.
—  Excerpts of stories @laxerchic will never finish// #209

The thing is I’m not even sure if I believe in true love. Sure I have the proof of its existence all around me. I have seen love that is sweet, gentle and rewarding. I have seen love that lasts forever. But at the same time , I also have seen enough proofs to know that love can be scheming, cunning and selfish too. It can take you to the highest highs and bring you crashing down to the lowest of lows. That tells me one thing:

Love doesn’t mean loyalty. It doesn’t mean trust, respect or selflessness.

So the question remains: What does love mean?

“What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.” ― Vincent van Gogh

I will love you when you’re just waking up with your tired eyes and sleepy voice. I will love you when you’re looking at the setting sun with nothing but pure amazement in your eyes. I will love you when your memories get the best of you and your mind floods from overthinking. I will love you when you think of yourself in the lowest way possible, and I will do everything in my power to change your outlook. I will love you when you breakdown and just need someone to hold you through the pain. I will love you when you find nothing worth loving about yourself. I will love you when your tears seem to be unstoppable. I will love you when you wear your smile so big I think it could fill the entire town. I will love you when you are completely together and when you are completely apart. I will love you through your highest highs and your lowest lows.

I will love you through it all.

Alright, lets talk ratings. I see a lot of you are worried about not getting a 3rd season and it’s with good reason. These are WE season 1 ratings compared to season 2 ratings. 

Now don’t look at the amount of viewers because that doesn’t matter as much as demo does. Series low 0.08 was in season 1, which is lowest of the lowest and it simply can’t go below that. BUT then fandom came together and season 1 finale was up to 0.14 which is good, especially for this type of show. Now the problem with season 2 is that it started really, really low and it’s currently on 0.12 average which is in my opinion not enough to get a renewal. Why? Because other shows are doing better. Here is another screenshot.

WE is in 11th place out of 13, one of the two below was renewed and the other was already cancelled after season 1. We should get at least to 0.14, even 0.15 average to get another season.

The good news is that WE is basically their only show with huge online buzz. No other can measure. And that’s GOOD. Networks pay attention to online traffic, whether good or bad, and so far it’s all good for our little show. And I heard their L+7 ratings are good.

So what we need to do is make some noise, watch live (who can) and help in any way to get this great show renewed. This cast deserves it and this fandom deserves it. 

I swear my boyfriend is just the perfect motivator for all of this. Ever since my stomach has started getting flat, whenever we have sex he tells me how amazing and skinny I look, and how I shouldn’t question whether I’m hot because I’m so tiny. All I have to do to keep from binging is repeat those compliments over and over in my head. When I’m shopping for food, he helps me find the lowest calorie version of what I want. He helps me find and make low-calorie foods that are delicious and will keep me under my daily limit. But on the days he comes home and I’m starting to faint because I obviously haven’t eaten all day, he makes me eat something.

This is why he’s half of the reason why I’m doing this. This fucking amazing guy deserves the most beautiful, skinny girlfriend in the world and I want to get as close to that as possible.

Give the awkward kid a compliment.

I was the ring bearer for my sister’s wedding when I was like 11 or 12 years old, and though I wasn’t exactly shy, I was kind of awkward and a little nerdy in new situations.  During the rehearsal, I did my part just fine, but just before the second take, the wedding planner said, “You have such a beautiful smile!  Make sure you smile this time, okay?”

I’ve battled with depression and low self-esteem off & on for most of my life, but even at my lowest points when I literally hated everything about myself and how I look, I still remembered that lady telling me I had a beautiful smile.

You never know what memories someone will take with them from childhood through adulthood, both good and bad.  I remember the bullying I got because I wasn’t straight, but I also remember that wedding rehearsal being the first time I didn’t feel like the ugly kid.

It’s good to focus on achievements and helping kids develop interests, but they still live in the real world, and society will always see what you look like before they see what you have to offer.  A little bit of validation can go a long way, and a genuine compliment for the shy awkward kid can really make a lasting impression.

Malice in Wonderland - The 3 Scorpio Evolutions Scorpio is a deeply complex and fascinating sign. The musical ubiquity of Fixed fire and water fusing in Plutonian nuclear power exacerbates the intensity of an individual given potential to express three evolutionary levels of consciousness. The shadowy scorpion, high flowing eagle and transcendental phoenix represent multidimensional pillars in the Scorpio psyche and the reserves of energy. The ruler of Scorpio is Pluto, the Roman god of the underworld; associating this sign with dying, multiple ego death, reincarnation, occult studies, transformation and frequent personality overhauls. Looking back on their lives, Scorpio individuals see the resonant photographs of their former selves and shells of older characters. Not all Scorpio people manage to grow phoenix wings, or express the venomous scorpion features, and yet all Scorpio’s possess the indwelling potential to ascend into spiritual flight. Voices of ancestors, cryptic etheric imprints, residual past life trauma and fixed, frozen water line the Scorpio consciousness and develop organic, and seemingly inorganic processes that erupt from the subconscious. Before we are allowed to progress from Scorpio to Sagittarius, we are forced to wrestle the serpent in the Orphicus constellation through the Ascelpius cradle, the healing child of Chiron, suggesting an evolutionary healing process and the acquisition of cryptic universal secrets are the tools for cosmic combat and the passageway through to the Sagittarian light.

The characteristics of the lower evolved scorpion individual are more widely recognised and seemingly more pronounced throughout society. This could relate to the mainstream media’s fascination with dismal, questionable personalities and frequent reports on crime and injustice that illuminate the darker shade of human consciousness. Anger, aggression, destructive defense mechanisms, malice and jealousy are scorpion characteristics which may spill into illegal and contemptuous activity. There tends to be an overwhelming, uncontrollable desire for power and a strong resistance to suppressive figures or moral authority. The scorpion traditionally represents the animal crawling low along the earth but having its sting on automatic reflex. Many examples of scorpion energies are found in politics and corporate looting where the Mars influence strangles water. Tony Abbott, the Prime Minister of Australia is a classic exemplification of the lowest evolved Scorpio. His years as opposition leader tugged politics into a murkier low when attacks on the government targeted character and deceived the public into falsely voting for the opposition. During the a hung parliament when trying to win the votes of the independents, Abbott informed member Tony Windsor, “ I would do anything for this job. The only thing I wouldn’t do is sell my arse, but I’d have to give serious thought to it.” His policies are frequently dismantled to suit corporate interests and act under the investment of bodies who promised the lure of power. Tony Abbott is an example of a Scorpio who sold his soul for a taste of power. There maybe altruistic pangs to improve humanity, though many will attain their authoritative position and have no plans to implement a better collective change. Kundalini energy may be directed to its lowest form of sexual promiscuity or aggression. There may be a desire for immortality, and a reactive and nebulous fear of death.

The Scorpio eagle has managed to ascend beyond some of the Mars fire, although the shadowy side still makes its presence known. The eagle has developed insight to the darker aspect of his personality and makes a conscious effort to dissociate the two from each other. There are resounding business, political and justice seeking energies here although practices may cross into unethical territory. The eagle wrangles with the scorpion paranoia and intrinsic distrust of society at large. Most people are viewed as being potential harmful and fierce psychological defense mechanisms are erupted in self protection. Life’s mysteries, universal laws, life, death and the occult are alluring fascinations and both white and black magic may be experimented with. The eagle begins to take flight and harness the deep profound Pluto energies, the feminine wisdom of water and develop a soaring eyed view of the world. The intrinsic urges to merge with others on a deeper level than the physical begins transpiring, and the awareness of a psychic relation between others develops. While the scorpion may be concerned about primal sex needs void of intimacy, the eagle desires a deeper, emotional communion. They will typically strike without warning, indulge in some sleuth activity and negotiate dark impulses when it comes to justice seeking and neutralizing society’s imbalance.

In their travels through forbidden realms, the divine Scorpio phoenix has experienced multiple ego death across his lifetime. The stinging scorpion and shaky eagle has metamorphised into an illuminated, transcendent healing force that can transform anyone in their presence. The universal symbol of medicine; the double snake encircled under wings is a reflection of the Scorpio phoenix and the transcendent healing potentials. Plutonian energy relates to X-Rays, pharmaceuticals, etheric healing, natural sorcery and herbal medicine. The occult wisdom of centuries is conveyed through their incredible empathy and rich, mystical inner life. The phoenix is aware of his vengeful, shadow side and has swallowed the demons to give him power, a greater power, the one he has realised stems only from, and to, love. This is the embodiment of destruction becoming the highest form of creation, where they rise from the ashes of their own obliteration and claim a new life blood. Scorpio phoenix individuals can reach meditative trance states, gifts of prophecy, astral travel and psychic awareness; and many become acclaimed spiritual healers, clairvoyants and travelers who scatter their healing light and love across humanity. I know a Scorpio phoenix who runs a renowned corporate business and remains a charming, kind and engaged employer. As soon as he finishes work, he rips of his business suit, practices meditative bonding with this partner and goes off to teach a class on sun salutation and tai chi. He channels his volatile intensity into scattering his divine wisdom about life and death and promoting interpersonal warmth amongst humanity. You really get the feeling there is so much light just bursting within the surface, and he lives quite a conservative daily life with a rich, personal night spirit. The phoenix is largely concerned with universal mysteries, investigating magic and their contribution of humanity. They are aware of god indwelling, the divine force firing within them and negotiate their potential with this power. Phoenix Scorpio are survivors. Emotionally, they may perish in the ashes of their own destructive nature, but they can also fly and erupt into the most beautiful, soul glowing shooting star.

Spoonie Witchcraft - what does it mean?

A small disclaimer first: I am by no means an expert nor are my words to be taken as the absolute truth. Witchcraft is a great tool but doesn’t replace actual medical care such as pills, going to the doctor/therapist, and so on. Also, I suffer from chronic mental illness and have no experience from chronic physical illness and thus I cannot speak for people who suffer from chronic physical illnesses.

The Spoon Theory

For chronically ill people, we have only a certain amount of energy to spend per day, or spoons. Various activities take different amount of spoons and the spoon amount might vary from day-to-day. Quite often you do not have enough spoons to do everything you want, so you have to either borrow from tomorrow’s spoons or juggle between choosing what to do.
In a situation like this, doing witchcraft is very hard - bigger spells, rituals, or anything that requires a lot of energy can easily take a good chunk of our daily spoons. This is why spoonie witches prefer to do low-energy spells.

Different levels of spoons

Because our spoon levels can vary from day to day, I have adjusted my witchcraft to them. I will present some examples that can give you an idea of what I do on days with certain amount of spoons.

Critical spoons - this is the lowest I can go. I usually don’t even get out of bed or maybe I get up enough to grab my laptop and go back to bed. On these days I prefer only to study and read, maybe say a chant and just hold my crystals to absorb their energy. Most often I don’t do anything because of how low my energy is.

Low spoons - the most common days I have. These are the days when I can cast a few small/simple spells and activate sigils. Rituals or bigger spells are still out of my league. I can probably manage to do the most critical daily tasks but not all.

Big spoons - once in a blue moon. These days are what I suppose “normal” people have. I have enough energy to complete my daily tasks and have a bit of extra even after that. Rituals and bigger spells are achievable and do not drain me completely.

Huge spoons - I’ve had such days more often than “a lot of spoons” -days, which I find a bit funny. On huge spoon days I feel like I can do anything and everything, so on these days I do tasks that have been waiting around such as cleaning and cleansing, laundry, and other tasks I consider very big and energy consuming. I also tend to charge my crystals and sigils on such days so I can draw their energy on days I don’t have as many spoons.

Am I a spoonie?

A lot of people can relate to the spoon theory, but what does being a spoonie actually mean?
It means that you are suffering from an illness that limits your daily life considerably. Everything in your life is dictated on how much energy you have and/or how much you are suffering from your illness on that day. You might not shower for a week because you don’t have the energy for it. You might not eat for two days because you don’t have the energy to make food. Two weeks’ worth of laundry is waiting but you can’t do anything about it because just the thought of it makes you exhausted. You can’t get out of bed because everything hurts so much and you just want to sleep forever.

I personally didn’t feel comfortable in calling myself a spoonie before I had medical papers in front of me that said I had a chronic mental illness. Of course, not every spoonie can get these papers or see a doctor, so it is mostly up to you to determine whether or not you’re a spoonie.
Some chronically ill people feel it disrespectful if you use the term when you are not diagnosed with such illness, so please keep that in mind.

Spoonie tips

  • Take your time. Your craft is not going anywhere and taking breaks is more than okay. Taking care of yourself is the number one priority. Always
  • On big/huge spoon days charge up crystals/sigils that will act as your “batteries” on low/critical spoon days
  • Lighting up candles will usually make you feel better
  • If you don’t have energy to clean and cleanse, lighting incense or opening a window can do wonders
  • Spend some time with your crystals, even if you just hold them in your bed
  • If you have plants, keep them near your bed so you have someone to talk with
  • Drink a lot of water. You can also charge the water in the sun or moon and infuse the water with intent
  • Draw sigils on your pill bottles, on your favorite mug, above your bed, in your phone’s cover, your hands, your comfort items, your heat bags… Anywhere and everywhere
  • On days when you can go outside, absorb light and the energy of the earth into yourself
  • Remember to ground and meditate (I find it really helpful)

Happy birthday @kliomuse


To my dear friend Cass, for all the times you’ve let me ramble on about this story and for being my sounding board in all things angel & demon, here is a little something to say thank you! Some sinful fun for a late Saturday night/early Sunday morning - which I think is very fitting for this fic!

Enjoy!

Also on A03 here



Boston - 1993

A demon walked into a bar.

It was a dump, the lowest of dives with flickering neon, cheap beer, and a literal angel perched on a stool with a flock of admiring men around her.

Killian felt a flare of jealousy low in his gut at the sight, his vision going red for a moment as he pulled out a pack of smokes from the inside pocket of his jacket and jammed one in his mouth. He lit a match one handed, flicking it to life with his thumb and a touch of infernal fire and taking a deep drag, tasting the bitter flecks of tobacco on his tongue and filling his lungs with harmless smoke.

Well, harmless to him.

Drunk Headcanons (Trios + Namine & Vanitas)

Sora: The Insatiably Hungry Drunk

All Sora wants to know is where the food is at. It isn’t a party until there are serious nom-noms involved. Pizza, burritos, ice cream, sushi– he needs all of it, now. And yours, too. Please? :)

Kairi: The Holds-Her-Liquor-Surprisingly-Well Drunk

Kairi, despite her small-ish stature, remains relatively composed under the influence. She can do shot after shot without even the slightest hint of a grimace, and will most likely drink you under the table while she’s at it.

Riku: The “I’m Not Drunk (But No, Actually, I’m Wasted)” Drunk

Riku is still totally sober– or so he wants you to believe. “I’m fine,” he insists, trying to act all normal-like. But then he goes to stand up, or perform some other ordinarily simple task, and it becomes apparent that he is far, far from it.

Roxas: The Wandering, Stumbling Mess Drunk

Roxas just wants to explore. Everything. He’s there one minute, gone the next! Although he may be stealthy at first and difficult to track down, he can usually be found once he’s lost control of his basic motor skills, either passed out or rolling around on the floor somewhere.

Xion: The Feist-Meister Drunk

Xion gets super spunky when she drinks. And super scrappy. That weird side-eye you just gave to one of her friends…? Come at her, bro. She dares you.

Axel/Lea: The Straight Chillin Drunk

Axel is straight chillin. And drinking. And chillin… And drinking. You better turn that frown upside down, ‘cause it’s all good, man. It’s allllllllll good. As for the implications of that statement? Well, he’ll leave those up to your imaginations. ;)

Ven: The Dancing Machine Drunk

Ven is a better dancer than most, and he knows it. When drunk, his moves become even more gravity-defying and mesmerizing to watch, and he likes to incorporate said moves into whatever it is he’s doing… Until he has too much to drink, in which case he turns into a Stumbling Mess (see Roxas, above).

Aqua: The (Uncharacteristically) Uninhibited Drunk

Aqua, who’s normally very rule-oriented and self-controlled, unleashes the beast, so to speak. She has a wild side, too, dammit! An incredibly-embarrassing-after-the-fact kind of wild side that, without fail, leaves her feeling absolutely, positively mortified the next day.

Terra: The Touch-y, Feel-y, Affectionate Drunk

Terra is bear-hugging, face-squeezing, hair-ruffling, tackle-lifting, and all up in your personal space bubble. All he wants is for you to SMILE!, feel the love, and know what a precious cinnamon roll you truly are. So go ahead. Bring it on in. You know you want to!

Namine: The Can’t-Stop-Giggling Drunk

Namine can’t. Stop. Laughing! It’s pretty much impossible for her to form a complete sentence– or listen to anyone else form a complete sentence, for that matter– without busting out into a fit of hysterics. She doesn’t know why it’s all so funny. It just– *gigglesnort*– is!

Vanitas: The Emotional(ly Volatile) Drunk

Vanitas is on a roller coaster. Of emotion. So many feels, so little time. You can’t fully understand what the term “intense” means until you’ve watched him go from the highest high to the lowest low, all in a span of four minutes (or less). And if you bring up the fact that you saw him genuinely smile last night, he’ll kill you. In the most brutal, painful, horrific way possible.

none of the wonderful gifs here were made by me, unfortunately, and i’m not sure who to credit for them. the drunk categories and descriptions are my own. 

I’m posting this to remotivate myself. I lost just over 100lbs, broke a bone in my foot, got very low, regained, yo-yo’d the last 3 years but ready to get back to it again.

I’ve regained 60lbs from my lowest on the right. I have a pain in my ankle for the last 12 months I’m trying to sort with physio. I’m out getting groceries today, meal planning and prepping. I know what I have to do, just gotta stick with it.
