ISNT IT!!! ive been there/helping since thE very beginning its been a long time coming and MAN it blew my expectations out of the WATER!!! ps she used a few of my sims and i wonder if anyone can guess which ones

Guess who’s back! I know I’ve been on hiatus for some time now, but I’m making my return here. Although, replies may come a tad slower than they have in the past.

Anyways, since it’s been so long, I’m going to be dropping all prior threads. This might be disappointing to some, but I feel it’s necessary, as I don’t remember most of the threads I had going. And yes, this applies both to here and my NSFW blog.

That being said, go ahead and like or reblog this post for a starter! Be sure to specify who you want it to be from or for, though. 

This young man just tried to flirt with me and it was adorable?

We walked up to me and asked how long the library was open till and I just started telling him that I thought I was open till nine but he could check in the front door.

Then, me being me, I started saying I’m not 100% certain as he sort of made to move away.

Then he very awkwardly/nervously said: I’m sorry, I actually wasn’t really intending to go in. It was meant to be a conversation starter and I kind of chickened out and abandoned it halfway through.

He was just super awkwardly adorable? I’m guessing he saw my wedding ring and decided to abort but seriously that was cute.

  • Email from contract company ended up not having anything to do with my particular contract.  (They were warning us about people trying to get us to sign up for unions, which I guess is a thing that’s been happening? I think it’s more for the people on the shop floor though.) There may be a legal reason that I’m not aware of as to why they were so vague in their wording, but I politely suggested they consider phrasing it in such a way as to NOT induce panic in the future.

They say that people come into our lives for a reason, to help us live and grow, and we help them in return. I’m not sure if it’s true, but whatever way our stories end, even if we never meet again, I’ll cherish the memories we had and keep them close to my heart. My story wouldn’t be the same without you.

Summary: “There’s no hope for people like us, sweetheart. We’re destined to fall in love a thousand times, and have our hearts broken in each one of them. We might as well be miserable together.”

A/N: Long fics might be turning into my new aesthetic. I’m sorry.

You never truly believed in love at first sight ― there was no reason to. The very idea seemed far too preposterous to be taken seriously, too ludicrous to exist outside of dreamy movies or forgotten fairy tales. How could two strangers cultivate such deep, mesmerizing emotion in the mere seconds they held a glance? How was it possible for them to simply know of their fate in the short amount of time they encountered each other? ― No; there were no soulmates, no predestined encounters. At least not for you. For you, there was only the faint ghost of a broken heart, the haunting of crumbled expectations; and the strong, determined promise to never fool yourself into another failed attempt at romance.

When you first saw him, however, you felt like the cosmos had morphed into static.

I used to be super interested in witchcraft when I was little, but now I'm pretty curious about practicing it and where I should start??

Ultimately, you start wherever you want to.

Think about why you were interested in witchcraft as a kid. What drew you to it? What did you want to do? Do some research on modern witchcraft, what it is now. What can you do? What can you not do? Are your childhood interests still possible? Are they even still relevant to you as an adult? As an adult, what do you want; and, subsequently, can you do that with with craft? What would you like to do with magic? Is it possible? What would you like to stay away from? Why?

Answer those questions, really look down and figure out what it is you want, and even who you are, and you should get a good idea of where you should go. For example, say you want to get into witchcraft to feel closer to nature, particularly the ocean, and channel that chaotic gorgeous energy; that might be a good sign to study sea magic. Or, perhaps, you have a supply limit, but you want to be able to do all sorts of things with minimal supplies; energy work is relevant in most forms of magic, and can do a lot with minimal / no other ingredients. Or, maybe you want to be more creative with your magic; sigil work is wonderful for that, while still being low on supplies and discreet. Maybe you want to do everything you can; well, welcome to eclectic witchcraft.

Some varieties of magic, to give you an idea and get you started: 

energy work ; candle magic ; crystal magic ; sachet magic ; knot magic ; poppet magic ; jar magic ; kitchen magic ; bath magic ; traditional magic ; urban magic ; glamour magic ; chaos magic ; sigil magic ; tech magic ; pop culture magic ; green magic ; elemental magic ; cottage magic ; sea magic ; storm magic ; space magic ; hedgework ; spirit work ; dragon magic ; shadow work ; blood magic ; sex magic ; death magic

Once you figure out a direction you want to go in, get some paper, find some reading material, and take notes. Research is one of the big things in witchcraft, and you’re going to be doing a bunch of it, particularly in the beginning, but honestly it never ends. Write what you want to know, or what you think you’ll want to use. Take what you read with a grain of salt; cross referencing is useful. 

[Here] is a list of authors you should try to avoid - trigger warning for mention of various disturbing topics. [Here] is a post that talks about why your book on witchcraft might be full of it; if you have any questions as to why that might be, feel free to ask the OP or even myself. [Here] is a post that explains using discretion and critical reading in regards to witchcraft books.

When you feel you’re prepared to start doing spells, do some. It might be easier to start with a premade spell, and they still work if you didn’t write them yourself, but if you feel you wanna write your own, go for it. Take notes of what you do during your castings, particularly in the beginning, so when mistakes happen (and they will), you can go back and read and see where it might have gone wrong to try to fix it or avoid in the future.

And yes, you will make mistakes. We all did, and still do. The best part of magic is experimentation, finding what works for you. You’re not gonna get everything perfect; some things also just won’t work for you. Try to fix it, but if it isn’t working, just move on. Keep your confidence in yourself - remember we all screw up and had to go through this period of finding who we are as magic users within the craft. You will find it in your own time, no rush, do it at your own pace. It is YOUR magic, after all.

And that’s what I’ve got for right now (starting to feel a bit drained, so I can’t flesh this out like I want to, but I’m thinking of writing down topics to work on more posts later). For things I didn’t cover, here are some more posts to read through:

If you have any more specific questions, I will do what I can. :)

like literally there would be outrage if people acted like this with children

“what do you mean they grow? he’s so small right now, won’t he stay that way?”

“listen this kid cries too much, I need a muzzle or something to keep his mouth shut”

“twenty years?? oh no that’s way too much commitment, we want one that won’t last that long. you know, an easy starter child”

“he stopped eating his meals, he only wants candy. I’m having to give him a bag a day!”
