this makes me think of my best friend

hellooo! im kind of a perfectionist so i like to do all those little details and everything first, but i see all these tutorials and writing how-to's to make basic shapes first, which i dont doubt for a second is wrong or anything i mean ive seen my friends and other artists do it that way and make beautiful art works. mine always come out wonky and disgusting causing me to wrinkle them up and throw them away, but i dont want to do that but if i do it the other way i get anxiety,,, help?

I’m not really sure how to answer >.< Basic shapes is for sure the best way to plan out any drawing, because if you get the shapes in the right places at the correct ratios, your final detailed piece will be more accurate. I think it’s completely normal to feel frustration with your art, and to crumple it up, and try again. The more you re-draw the same thing the better that drawing will be. Revisions and self-reflection will only help you :) Just keep practicing and trust me you’ll get there!

I was tagged by @fairylightsstyles - thank you, love!

1. I studied abroad in the Netherlands during my junior year of university. I lived in Maastricht, but traveled to Paris, London, and Amsterdam on the weekends, as well as making regular biking trips to Belgium throughout my time there.

2. At one point, I knew how to play the violin.

3. I love reality TV (specifically the Real Housewives franchise).

4. I think pineapple on pizza is an A+ idea.

5. I have a cat named Atticus. He’s about six years old and I rescued him two years ago this May. He was left at my best friend’s vet’s office and she called me, knowing that I was debating on whether or not to adopt a cat. We’re great pals, and I’m really lucky to have him.

6. I pride myself on my personal library. My books are something I’ll never be able to get rid of.

7. I’m really, really close with my family. Especially my mom.

8. I play trivia on a team at a bar every Thursday night. We dominate.

9. I’m strangely good at playing pool (billiards), but only when I’m drunk.

10. My birthday is October 16.

11. I’m absolutely obsessed with nail polish and have approximately 80 bottles of it after destashing about 50 bottles last autumn.

What do you do when all you do is think about someone non stop but realize and understand that, that someone isn't thinking about you. Their mind is on someone else.. but even tho you realize and understand that the someone isn't thinking about you.. you still somehow can't get them off of your mind

You could do something called thought blocking which is exactly what it sounds. When you catch yourself thinking about everything just stop. You have to actively think about other things like anything that makes you happy. Puppies, family, friends, anything and do that until you’re in a good place again. It’s fucking hard trust me. It took me such a long time to learn how to do it but you just gotta keep trying until it comes naturally. Whenever I think about something bad now it’s almost instantaneous that I think about my best friends and our memories. It just takes time so please be patient with yourself

@markiplier ~
I often sit and wonder about what makes life a grate thing to live when you see all the haters and ragers and those who just dont wont to be pleased with anything unless its what they see or think of the world and i found my answer.
My best friend @itswonderland-of-dreams showed me that even if its a dark place small things can still make you smile, like a best friend who knows just how to make you happy on a bad day or when the need to relasps comes around and they know about it without saying a word and just cuddle you with all the things you love.
So on behalf of my best friend in the hole world, i would love love for @markiplier to see this and maybe share it so @itswonderland-of-dreams can see that even though their days are dark ones at the moment something small can make it bright again. Because @markiplier you are the one who makes their days brighter, its why they drew this for you to show their suport of someone who always keeps them smiling.

So please, no matter the dark place, always remember that light shines through somehow.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
