very VERY crappy ones at that

appreciation post

hello, again! it’s been a little over 4 months now since i’ve become a part of the studyblr community. it is hands down one of the best life decisions i’ve ever made.  to start off, i had a small amount of followers back then. it grew into a very large number now and i am very thankful for that. i’m not tumblr famous. i’m not a big studyblr. but i wanted you all to know that receiving reblogs, likes, comments, mentions, tags and even random messages makes my day! it’s always an honor to be mentioned by new amazing studyblrs! i have never thought that i, someone who struggles with creativity can inspire others. moving on, i want to thank every one of you who followed, stayed and put up with my crappy posts. i’m not the best when it comes to communicating, i don’t talk a lot, i can’t hold conversations for long. like, i know it feels awkward talking to me because i can’t give good replies. i know very well. i am still afraid of reaching out to studyblrs tbvh, i don’t know why but i guess that’s just me. i don’t reach out to people in real life as well. i hang with a specific group of friends and that’s it. i’m not picky when it comes to befriending people, it’s just that i’m not the type to reach out? sometimes i do, but that’s a very rare occurrence. i’d really love to message you but i can’t seem to start. people at my school have said that i’m rude, arrogant and all that stuff. ah, i just have a hard time warming up to somebody. still, thank you.


lastly,

some we’ve talked to each other, some we’ve interacted through tag and mentions, some i’ve never reached out to but always notice, thank you for everything and even the little things you’ve done. i’m thankful you guys exist. i hope this post screams out my sincerest feelings. have a wonderful day and stay healthy, lovelies. x

Some of these will not apply to many people so pls take them with a grain of salt. Also I’ve been collecting these pretty much for the two years I’ve been in college so it’s not a guide, they’re just… random I guess.

Making friends 

Warning - specially tailored for super shy people aka me

  • There’s a thing called the ‘first week window of endless oportunities’. It’s when groups are still forming and everyone’s desperate to make friends. This is the time to put your best self forward (I’m not saying be fake, just a little extra friendly).
  • Leave. Your. Door. Open. Do it. Even if you have a roommate. Best way to make friends the first week.
  • Actually get out of your room. You’re not going to meet many people if you hole up in your room. If you have a tv room or people are watching a movie, I don’t care if you’re not interested in what they’re watching, go.
  • If you have the balls to go to the room nextdoor and introduce yourself then you probably can skip this section by all means do it!
  • But if you don’t, going from door to door asking for help with your laundry takes a lot less courage + you will learn how to do laundry. Asking to borrow something (pencil, hair tie, hair dryer) also works.
  • If you’re staying at a residence hall, ask to sit with people at lunch! Nobody is going to say no, i promise.
  • Similarly if you see someone alone, ask them to have lunch with you! 
  • Also if you meet someone you get along with, as soon as you can, ask for their number ‘so you can go to the dinning hall together’. 
  • Remember people’s names - it makes people feel like you actually care about them. I know it’s hard but make an effort. Also it just gets annoying when someone asks about your name for the fourth time. Use mnemonics if you have to.
  • Asking what someone’s major is and where they’re from is standard procedure when you meet them but it doesn’t make for an interesting conversation. Think of other questions!
  • Make sure to arrive about 10 min early to your classes. There’ll be very few people and so it’ll be easier to strike up a conversation (actually people will probably talk to you without you having to say anything which is g r e a t)
  • Say yes - as a rule of thumb, your social life should prevail over your academic life the first two weeks. This is the time where you’re not really pressed for time. Say yes to watching movies, say yes to going to lunch, say yes to going to campus events (and even to parties). Obviously don’t do anything that makes you really unconfortable but do try to step out of your comfort zone
  • Make friends with an upper-classman from your same major. Or at least be on speaking terms. Talk to them on Facebook, ask them about your major, just use any random idc excuse to introduce yourself, it doesn’t really matter how you do it.
  • Don’t go home every weekend, even if you live close by. You’ll miss out on the best of campus life and some of the most fun memories with your new friends.

Keeping your old friends

  • If you know you’re going home for the weekend, try to finish most of your assignments/studying and make time to hang out with your friends. Spending time with them is the best way to keep those friendships alive. 
  • But! Don’t worry too much if you can’t come home or make time for your friends too often, you just have to make an effort to text them regularly. It will come naturally if it’s your best friend, but don’t forget to set a reminder to text other close friends at least once every two weeks.
  • You may think you don’t care now but you will once you come home for the summer.
  • If any of your friends are staying in your hometown for college, be ready for them to get another friend group. That doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about you, but don’t be mad if they seem to have a lot more plans that don’t involve you. You can always ask to tag along some time and maybe even become friends with these people!
  • Some people you’ll just lose contact with. Don’t fret it.

Organization

  • Please print out or buy a calendar that has a whole page for each month. With boxes preferably *shameless plug*. You may think you have it all under control but there’s nothing like being able to see all your due dates, hang out plans and laundry days at a glance. (Also js but the pilot frixion are perfect to use on calendars because they’re erasable).
  • There’s so much space under your bed. UTILIZE IT.

lunaklow  asked:

Could you do a tutorial or give me some tips on how to digitally paint hair is the hardest for me thanks for your time:)

Some tips:

*Never color black hair with pure black, it makes it look bad and you cant put shades on it and, its very difficult to make good lights too. Its much better if you put like a dark gray or something like that but never paint it black.

*Is more preferable if you do not use very saturated colors for the hair, it’s just too bright and make it difficut to watch, putting away the fact that it makes it look very ugly if you dont know how to use that kind of saturated colors.

*Have fun painting it, take your time. I do, and tbh one of the best parts for me its painting the hair, it makes me feel relaxed.


I hope it helped a little bit at least (?)

All right, it’s Misfit Appreciation Day 2017, and we’re finally at the 1990s for the entry here.

When a lot of people talk about the 1990s, it’s usually with scorn, often making accusations of every comic being loaded with over-muscled men, women with impossible body types, pupil-less eyes, shoulder pads, big knives and bigger guns. And I’m here to tell you that’s like assuming you know what the 1970s was like because you watched a bunch of blackploitation movies. While there were a ton of bad books, there were plenty of awesome and amazing books from that decade. Just off the top of my mind, Kingdom Come, Mike Allred’s Madman (as well as his series Red Rocket 7), League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Hellboy, Preacher, Sandman Mystery Theatre, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac… I wanna count Maus in there, but I can’t remember if it started in the early 90s or late 80s and I’m too lazy to do a Google search. And honestly… Whether they were great books or not, the Knightfall and Death of Superman stories were a LOT of fun to read. The Birds of Prey started around this time as well. Valiant’s Unity Crossover early on was amazing to read at that time… And that’s just the stuff I remember off the top of my mind. And there were a ton of comics that started off questionable that turned into something amazing. Witchblade turned into Switch (which I’m still waiting on issue #5, Stjepan Sejic!) Glory, which was kinda crappy turned into the amazing comic by Joe Keatinge. And then there’s Prophet… Which is all sorts of amazing, considering how bad that book was.

The 90s gave us some pretty amazing things. Yeah, there still was rampant sexism and stupid violence. But there was some very great comics and ideas that still influence very positive things to this day in comics.

Such as the Batman Adventures, and a special one-shot it had that, for me, is the greatest comic of all time: Batman: Mad Love

The use of shading and strong line work. Story panel layouts and “camera work”. Strong dialogue and even stronger storytelling. Characterization so developed that even if you didn’t watch the show, you knew what was going on and who the characters were. We all know how great the show was, but this was the first time i’ve seen a comic book fully make me feel like I was reading an episode of the series. (So much so that I actually prefer the comic book to the episode!) That book was THE most influential comic to me EVER. I would probably have given up being a cartoonist long ago, if not for that book. It’s probably more responsible for me being the artist I am, more than anything else.

So it’s only fitting that Misfit’s entry into the 1990s be based on the comic book series that created… Well… Created me. :)

anonymous asked:

“fight me, you attractive stranger.” spideypool?

(was there ever a more spideypool prompt?)

Peter wasn’t really having a great patrol tonight. So far, a bank robber had nearly gotten away from him, a carjacker had almost run him over, and a mugger had managed to kick him really, really hard in a place he really did not want to be kicked.

And to top it all off, he was currently swinging around Brooklyn trying to locate what had been reported on the police scanner as a ‘Spider-man look-alike’. Because that’s exactly what he wanted; more wannabes getting hurt trying to be heroes.

He stopped and landed on a shabby apartment building as he neared the area that had been reported. He couldn’t see or hear anything that sounded like a crime in progress, but that didn’t really mean much.

Then, suddenly, a fuckton of gunfire erupted from the building across the street from his. Peter jumped and (despite his obvious courage and fearlessness because he’s Spider-man goddammit) ducked behind the edge of the building’s roof. 

After a solid thirty seconds of the gunfire, it suddenly stopped. No final shots, no stragglers. It just…stopped. Very, very cautiously, Peter peered back over the edge of the building to look down.

And walking out of the building, with a much too happy walk for someone who should be riddled with bullet holes, was someone dressed…as a crappy Spider-man? Peter couldn’t really tell. They had on a red bodysuit, and had more weapons than Peter had ever seen in one place. And he saw Tony during his hyper-security phase.

Slowly, Peter climbed over the ledge and made his way down his building towards the man, who was luckily coming towards him. When he was reasonably close, but not spotted, he shot a web and stuck the man’s hands to the wall. The man promptly shrieked. 

Peter jumped down and landed in front of him. “I’d suggest you stop struggling. It’ll just get stuck in your weapons.”

The man looked at him and gasped. “Is this your sticky white stuff? It’s nice sticky white stuff.”

Peter rolled his eyes. Another one of these guys. “Yeah, sure. Got a good explanation for having enough firearms to arm an entire police force? It’s kind of ironic, since you’re going to prison for this.” Peter said, pulling out his phone to contact the police.

“What?” the man exclaimed, sounding offended, of all things. “I don’t even get to fight for my freedom?”

“No, you don’t. That’s not how it works.”

“Why not? I won’t even use my guns! Or knives!” the man insisted.

Peter narrowed his eyes at him, even if he wouldn’t be able to tell through his mask. “Something tells me you have other weapons than just those.”

“Fine, I won’t use any of those, either. Now can we duel?”

“Nope. I’d rather just watch you get arrested, then I can go home and enjoy knowing that you’re in jail.”

The man narrowed his masked eyes at him, and somehow, Peter could tell. “Well, that’s just rude. Let a man have some pride, dammit! Fight me, you attractive stranger!”

“Not a chance in hell.” Peter said, leaning against the brick a few feet away and crossing his arms.

After that, to Peter’s surprise, the man fell silent. Peter sighed in relief and pulled out his phone again. May as well play Candy Crush.

Then, son of a bitch, the man took off down the street.

Peter nearly jumps out of his skin when he does. He has no idea why his spider-senses just failed him so spectacularly. After a moment of double-checking to make sure he didn’t just have a heart attack, he swears rather loudly and uses a streetlight to catch up to the man, who’s running and trying to get the webbing off of his hands at the same time. He swings hard and uses his momentum to launch himself to land on top of the runaway.

Instead of collapsing like a normal person, the guy stumbles, looks at him once, then just keeps running down the street with Peter on his back like he weighs nothing.

Peter, despite the situation and the fact that this man could be very dangerous, laughs. He laughs harder than he has all day. Because he’s in the middle of Brooklyn, a place he rarely goes, it’s three in the morning, and he just landed on top of a criminal who just decided to give him a piggyback ride.

The man looks back up at him over his shoulder, then starts to slowly laugh with him. He laughs just as hard as Peter, and there’s about three seconds of hilarity before the man trips over a crack in the sidewalk and face-plants, sending Peter flying.

Both of them sit there for a moment, laugh a little bit more, then Peter stands, walks over to him, and webs his feet to the concrete. When he reaches a hand for a knife, he webs that hand to the concrete, too.

“Aw, what? I gave you a piggyback ride!” the man complains, waving his only free hand.

“And it was fun. But you’re still a criminal.” Peter points out, looking down at him.

“You are the worst. We had fun!”

Peter rolled his eyes. “Who are you, anyway? Trying to be a superhero?”

The masked man somehow rolled his eyes. “No. I’m Deadpool. Anti-hero extraordinaire. Merc with a mouth. Or, if you’re special, Wade Wilson.” Deadpool said, holding out his only free hand.

Peter slowly shook it. “I’m Spider-man.”

“I know. Your ass has been in so many dreams of mine.”

Peter scrunched his nose. “Great,” he started, then heard sirens in the distance. About damn time. “Well, I’m gonna get going. Looks like you’ll be all taken care of.”

Deadpool (or Wade, Peter wasn’t sure what to call him) perked up at the sound of the sirens. “Ah, dammit. C’mon, Spidey, cut a guy some slack!”

“You literally shot up a building less than ten minutes ago.” Peter deadpanned, preparing to swing away.

“Spidey! Can I at least see you again?” Wade pleaded, begging with the one hand he had left.

“Sure.” Peter answered, then swung away, leaving him to the police and ignoring the pleas following him.

See you in your dreams, Wade.

Arrow 5x12 “Bratva” Review: Crossing Lines

This was a good episode. It was a lot like 5x10 in that it was a decent episode with a very crappy ending. I had hopeful expectations during the summer hiatus that we’d return to Russia in the present time; a callback to 2x06. But then season 5 began, and whatever hopeful expectations I had started to wither and die. With that in mind, there was a lot more to this episode that was enjoyable than I thought possible. I mean, except for that one part. And yes, I’ll get into. I also do not hold back anymore on Suzie Q. I say very not nice things about her. I have no regrets.

OTA

I’m going to start with my babies. It’s been such a long time since we’ve had a decent OTA scene and we really got a couple in this episode.

We start with them in the Bunker. Together. Alone.

I know. Rejoice.

Felicity greets Diggle with, “Welcome back. Hugs, kisses, warm feelings.” Diggle returned the favor.

RIGHT IN MY DELICITY FEELS.

Originally posted by atlamilliahearts

I loved that Diggle and Felicity were both open with Oliver about how the mission to Russia was personal for both of them. Diggle needs to take down Walker once and for all; Felicity needs to do everything she can to stop another Havenrock from happening. Oliver misappropriates the City Hall private plane and they all travel to Russia with the rest of the team—save for Rene and Lance.

My favorite was in Russia when Oliver told them that he needed them to walk the line for him. They were the ones that brought him back when he’s crossed the line himself. Diggle is Oliver’s moral compass. Felicity is the one who harnessed the light inside of him; she’s the one who guides his way. As Oliver spends another/the season debating about whether he’s a good man deserving good things, he needs his core to retain their goodness.

And it’s a beautiful moment. Because in that scene Oliver is attempting to guide them. It’s what I was hoping for in 4B where Oliver would be the one to lead them into the light out of the darkness but the writers shortchanged us on it. It’s important to note that Oliver learned to fight with the light inside of him; and he did it because of his association with Felicity and Diggle. There is reciprocity to that; as they affect him, he affects them. He can guide them to the light because they taught him how to do that.
