what a great set of images

Here’s some things I do when I don’t have energy or forget to eat. This is what helps me, so please keep in mind that it might not work for you.

1) Set reminders! I forget lunch the most, so I have a reminder on my phone at around noon each day telling me to eat lunch. Add as many as you need.

2) For days when you can’t get out of bed, keep some nonperishable food in your room if you can. I have a plastic container near my bed so I can easily reach it without getting up.

  • Mine has granola bars, crackers, fruit snacks, fruit cups, trail mix, jerky, and bottled water. It’s not a “normal” meal, but much better than nothing and requires almost no energy.

3) Break down tasks into very small steps. Sometimes mine are as small as “Sit up in bed, move feet onto floor, stand up, walk out of room, walk down hallway, walk to kitchen”. I give myself time in between steps to build up motivation if I need to.

  • Make a checklist if you need to visualize it!

4) Congratulate yourself after completing a difficult step. Even if it’s a simple step, or after every step. It seemed silly to congratulate myself for getting out of bed, but it really helps motivate me to continue.

  • My internal dialogue for this is something like “Okay you did it! That wasn’t too bad. Now you can do the next step too” or “If that was the hardest part, I can do this”

5) I go to @lowspoonsgourmet when I don’t know what to make and they organize recipes by how many spoons it requires!

  • @no-more-ramen is another good one and separates recipes into categories like if there’s no chopping involved or if it makes leftovers

I think that’s it? I might add to this if I think of more. I hope this was helpful!

Death of a Bachelor

I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m writing fic again so hi, have some Klaine AU happenings based on The Bachelor!

Rated PG… for now. Butts later.


Chapter 1


“You did what?”

“Come on, Blainey Squirt boy. It’ll be fun!”

Blaine grimaced as his older brother rambled into his ear over the phone. Every week they tried to set up at least one time and day to chat and stay in touch with each other’s lives, but Cooper, as always, had derailed that. It was six o’clock on a Thursday morning—Blaine’s one day off this week.

“Look, I had a blast when I was on The Bachelorette. Made a lot of friends, got to go all over the place on really fancy dates. It was great for my image, too. That’s how I got the recurring spot on The Young and the Restless. They’re talking about making me a regular!”

“Didn’t they kill you off last month?”

“That’s not the point. Everyone comes back to life on those shows.”

anonymous asked:

while Poe was beaten and then simply tortured by Kylo, Rey was mind probed and not beaten, while mind probing is painful Kylo wasn't causing her pain to get answers he actually says in novelisation he will try to do it as pain free as possible but he needs the information so he will get it on way or another I just don't see how this comparison is missed on some people. What else other than the fact Kylo has compassion for Rey could they be setting up there?

They absolutely wanted people to compare those scenes, and Kylo’s treatment of his respective prisoners. There is a world of difference between this:

And this:

I’m not going to go into the nitty-gritty here, since I think just these images alone form a great contrast - for Poe’s interrogation, the room is bathed in darkness and Kylo is a wraith-like figure, hardly visible in the shadows. For Rey’s interrogation, Rey herself emanates light and Kylo crouches low to behold her as if he’s paying homage. 

This isn’t to say that Rey’s interrogation is okay or pleasant (it’s transparently neither), but it is to say that the scenes take the same act (of interrogation) and use two different depictions of it to convey character dynamics in the strongest way possible. Kylo displays nothing but contempt and menace towards Poe, but is fascinated and reverent with Rey. The strangeness of his behaviour with Rey is accentuated by the fact that we have previously seen what we presume to be his normal interrogator shtick with Poe.

USING YOUR POWER FOR GOOD (for Design*Sponge)

Each of us holds an innate power to do great things, and as creatives, we have a unique set of skills for putting that power to work. Whether your talent is rooted in words, images, organization, persuasion or just having an audience, it’s both a manifestation of that core ability and a method to harness it.

Part of recognizing your power is acknowledging your obligation to use it to stand up for what’s right. There’s so much in the world that needs our attention. Some things could simply benefit from a little compassion. Other issues are more complex and require deliberate steps towards change. Remember that you have the ability to create impact of some kind, and when your power is rooted in communication, your silence speaks volumes. You have the tools to do at least something, so please try. Use your power for good. –Adam J. Kurtz

identity-based habits

The key to building lasting habits is focusing on creating a new identity first. Your current behaviors are simply a reflection of your current identity. What you do now is a mirror image of the type of person you believe that you are (either consciously or subconsciously).

To change your behavior for good, you need to start believing new things about yourself.

Imagine how we typically set goals. We might start by saying “I want to lose weight” or “I want to get stronger.” If you’re lucky, someone might say, “That’s great, but you should be more specific.”

So then you say, “I want to lose 20 pounds” or “I want to squat 300 pounds.”

These goals are centered around our performance or our appearance.

Performance and appearance goals are great, but they aren’t the same as habits. If you’re already doing a behavior, then these types of goals can help drive you forward. But if you’re trying to start a new behavior, then I think it would be far better to start with an identity–based goal.

The interior of behavior change and building better habits is your identity. Each action you perform is driven by the fundamental belief that it is possible. So if you change your identity (the type of person that you believe that you are), then it’s easier to change your actions.

The reason why it’s so hard to stick to new habits is that we often try to achieve a performance or appearance–based goal without changing our identity. Most of the time we try to achieve results before proving to ourselves that we have the identity of the type of person we want to become. It should be the other way around.

Changing your beliefs isn’t nearly as hard as you might think. There are two steps.

  1. Decide the type of person you want to be.
  2. Prove it to yourself with small wins.

Here are five examples of how you can make this work in real life.

Note: I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to start with incredibly small steps.

The goal is not to achieve results at first, the goal is to become the type of person who can achieve those things.

For example, a person who works out consistently is the type of person who can become strong. Develop the identity of someone who works out first, and then move on to performance and appearance later.

Start small and trust that the results will come as you develop a new identity.

  1. Want to lose weight? Identity: Become the type of person who moves more every day. Small win: Buy a pedometer. Walk 50 steps when you get home from work. Tomorrow, walk 100 steps. The day after that, 150 steps. If you do this 5 days per week and add 50 steps each day, then by the end of the year, you’ll be walking over 10,000 steps per day.
  2. Want to become a better writer? Identity: Become the type of person who writes 1,000 words every day. Small win: Write one paragraph each day this week.
  3. Want to become strong? Identity: Become the type of person who never misses a workout. Small win: Do pushups every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
  4. Want to be a better friend? Identity: Become the type of person who always stays in touch. Small win: Call one friend every Saturday. If you repeat the same people every 3 months, you’ll stay close with 12 old friends throughout the year.
  5. Want to be taken seriously at work? Identity: become the type of person who is always on time. Small win: Schedule meetings with an additional 15–minute gap between them so that you can go from meeting to meeting and always show up early. What is your identity?

(from u/wiara_faithful)

I also can’t find an image set for this, but I cannot express enough how sublime a moment the Santa Ana Wind turning into a reprise of “You Stupid Bitch” was. They took a device that felt slightly outside of the confines of the show, pushed it into what almost felt like another genre, with its own rules, its own brand of magical realism–and then quickly and quietly pulled back the background to reveal we’d never left at all. This was always Rebecca’s head, and Rebecca’s head is still very much a hurting, tangled mess. 

Great reversal, great mirroring of Rebecca’s own mindset. A+, show.

Well...

I see an image of people set on fire in chapter 88.

At least Bertl is already dead. Whatever tragedy they’ll make us see about his past it will only mean he was much more prepared for the end he met then I thought.

He was a great guy, he was sweet and sensitive: he didn’t deserve to die like this, neither he deserves such a sad life.

I think the same about Armin, with the difference that he is now alive and conveniently lost memory of what happened to him.

bael-bard  asked:

I've been thinking about Shireen's burning to awaken stone dragons and then remembered that there already was a tragedy caused by an attempt to hatch drafon eggs - at Summerhall. Is it possible that Stannis's sacrifice will not just be an empty one, but backfire (he-he) horribly? Great fire that burns Winterfell (again) setting the stage for Bran the Rebuilder. And Stannis in the middle of it, horrifyed by what he had done. "I saw a king, a crown of fire on his brows, burning ... burning, Davos"

Doubt it. I don’t think that image refers to a literal fire, but rather the scorching of Stannis’ soul as he struggles between saving the world and sparing his child. 

Mao Asada, All-Japan Figure Skating Championships 2009 (Free Skate)

I love it when Mao skates to Rachmaninoff, because she always brings the intensity and drama that such powerful music demands. This costume, for Mao’s Bells of Moscow program, is certainly no exception.

I also honestly really liked her brief love affair with thick-ribboned chokers? Potentially controversial, I know. 

The sparkly grey flames are a really interesting choice and part of what sets this costume apart to this day. It would’ve been really easy to go with ombre, melding black up slowly to red, but the grey makes the black blacker and the red redder by contrast. And the chest ruffles add to the whole smoke and fire impression, especially during Mao’s spiral sequence. 

And the flutter on that skirt is out of this world. Fantastic and unforgettable. I will even temporarily pretend I don’t see the tights-over-boots and not penalize for them.

Grade: A+

Before we started shooting we walked to 7-11 and there was this bright yellow and blue building down the street. Bright buildings intrigue me because they stand out so much. One day you’re driving down the street and everything looks the same, but all of the sudden there’s this bold yellow building standing out against everything else (I’m weird, I know).

I wanted to shoot in front of the yellow building. David put on a nice shirt and started skating down the street. Because who says you need to be drinking wine and eating weird cheeses when you’re in a button up?

I think we only shot in this area for 30 minutes before I had to leave. He looks very serious in all these photos but realistically we couldn’t stop laughing the whole time. The great thing about David is that he’s full of ideas. While we were shooting he would be like “hey what about this angle?” and I love that. He actually thought of the angle in the last image of this set. Models normally just give all the control to the photographer (and I’m a complete control freak, so I don’t mind) but it’s nice to hear ideas out of another persons mind sometimes too.

As soon as I got home I started editing these photos, and as soon as I started editing I realized how much better they look in black and white. People will never really know how beautiful this yellow and blue wall was but we can just pretend.

So I tried to reblog this from @question-meme​ because it’s a great little Q list, but it was trying to reblog as a chat post so I C/P’ed it all into this here text post. Just FYI! If you want to reblog, may I point your toward the original source to do so!

I felt guilty of just writing it for one one of them so I write this instead



Yoosung


  • You planned this for month a big surprise birthday party.

  • You got help from everyone of course most work got stuck on you still but you did not mind this.
  • After all it was your idea.
  • Everything is perfectly planned the decoration looks great everyone took the next day off.
  • You got him a brand new hoodie with cat ears – I want this to become canon-
  • Just imaging how cute he will look in it makes you happy.
  • Together with Jaehee you where hanging the last decorations up and the balloons.
  • Everything looked really great Zen got a karaoke machine what was quite nice of him even when it was mainly so he could show off.
  • Jumin had a chef cook for everyone so you could set a very nice buffet up.
  • You baked the cake yourself what was chocolate cake.
  • You made it before and it was really good so you where Positive Yoosung would like it.
  • Luciel had the job to bring Yoosung over when it was time.
  • Jaehee got even a few days off for this event and said that this was better then her actual work.
  • So you both where pretty much done as Zen came he helped you with a few minor thinks.
  • You invited Yoosungs friends too who came one by one.
  • Jumin came quite late but it could not be helped since he is very busy.
  • Then all you had to do was waiting for Luciel to come with Yoosung but it took much longer then you thought.
  • After he was a half hour late you called him.
  • He was driving you heard that much he just said something over heavy traffic and you could not question it any further.
  • So you kept waiting after a hour you called again but nothing you asked Jumin to track them it just showed them driving.
  • It looked like they where on the right path.
  • So you kept waiting a few got really impatient.
  • Then finally you get a message from Luciel that they are close by.
  • So you tell everybody to hide and turn the lights out.
  • While you open the door.
  • You see a fully exhausted Yoosung and a really beat looking Luciel.
  • You stare at them and ask what happened.
  • Poor Yoosung just wants to go inside and rest before working like he promised his birthday seems to run so bad.
  • You look at Luciel who looks away he is clearly embraced.
  • You force him to spill the beans so he does.
  • While his distraction plan was simple to tell Yoosung you need party supplies and it wont take long after that you too could spend the rest of his birthday together.
  • Sadly Luciel got the brilliant idea to buy his chips and he took Yoosung with him sadly it ended with them having to run away for a full hour to loose the guys and then to come here.
  • You judge Luciel hard for roping Yoosung in his shenanigans.
  • How could buying simple chips lead into them running away?
  • Plus now you have this awesome party but your boyfriend is way to beat to enjoy it.
  • You decide to take him in and make it short while you thinking of how to punish Luciel later.
  • So you go in and the lights turn on and everyone screams surprise at the poor guys face.
  • He is stunned and he is extremely beat but he is super happy.
  • Somehow he regains his energy quickly after some energy drinks and the sweet cake does the rest.
  • It becomes a great day for Yoosung in the end and you are really glad it turned out that good for him.
  • You promise him to take him to his next surprise party yourself.



Zen


  • The hardest part was to make sure he had time off  from his work the rest just came to you step by step.
  • You wanted to go all out for him but you knew you could not make a surprise party he would see right threw your act after all.
  • So you make him think its a surprise party but actual you planned a weekend trip for you two.
  • It took great effort and the help from Jaehee to pull this off but she supported you since Zen always works so hard he he deserves a few days rest.
  • It was good that his birthday is actual out of holidays season it would be a bit cold still but you where sure that at least you could enjoy some time together in nature.
  • Since you booked a cabin in the woods. -highkey looking at my Zen x femMc art -
  • You made triple sure he had that 3 days off.
  • You would drive their the day ahead with a cheap excuse making him believe that you would have his party their but actual it would be just the two of you.
  • Of course you where exited and you also packed all the bags in the hopes Zen would not notice that some of it was missing.
  • You made a cake for him, packed some champagne for you two and also some candles.
  • You packed the cake extra careful too.
  • After Zen is done with his work you pick him up he is tired but he is really exited over what ever you planned for him.
  • Of course he tries to hide it but his acting isn´t so convincing this time.
  • The drive is quite long and at some point Zen is passing out and you have the hardest time to not look at him.
  • Finally you arrived it was already dark outside you looked at your watch already past ten pm.
  • First you brought your luggage in without disturbing Zen.
  • Then you returned to your car.
  • You felt guilty waking Zen up but you had no choice it was impossible for you to carry him after all.
  • So you gently woke him up and told him you arrived in his sleepy state he asked no questions.
  • Some people maybe would be suspicious to wake up in a car in the middle of the mountains but since you are the one he loves he doesn´t question you.
  • He follows you sleepy but he slowly wakes up and gets more curious after you arrive at the cottage.
  • You open the door and of course there is no surprise party or anything you tell him what you actual planned and you hope he was not to exited about the party.
  • But actual he loves the idea to spend the whole weekend just with you.
  • You two can go hiking or you could do other thinks inside the cabin.
  • *coughing* you all know what I mean *couching*
  • It´s a very lovely weekend for both of you Zen really loves the cake you made him and he really likes having a break once a while.
  • He returns highly motivated and inspired.



Jaehee


  • Jaehee is such a workaholic and since her birthday is so close to Christmas people uselessly forget or are by their families.
  • Also she works for Jumin what makes it hard for her to get days off anyway.
  • So first of all you have to bribe Jumin to get a Vacation for Jaehee between the holidays
  • ~You pretty much have to agree to be Elizabeth the 3rd´s slave for the next year but its worth it~
  • After that is done you plan a very relaxed birthday for her.
  • You also make sure to buy her more Zen merchandise plus you have him sing for her and record it.

  • You even booked a massage session for you two tomorrow how sweet of you.
  • In the end of the day she gives you a kiss and you feel really blessed.



Jumin


  • After you struggled over month with gift ideas and date ideas you settle on a simple plan that does not involve any of Jumins employees.
  • It was quite hard to make him get the day off but you pout a bit and tell him how lonely you and Elizabeth the 3rd will be if he does not spend his birthday with both of you.
  • That gets him every time so he takes the day off.
  • Even Jaehee is glad that he is not their um has a day of.
  • You get him a few thinks that remind you of him like he ever does but the thinks you buy are cheaper but you really hope he does not mind that.
  • You just don´t wanted to use any of his money for his gifts so you had no choice.
  • Still you feel like its not enough how are you suppose to show him how much you love him just with gifts ?
  • Impossible, so you do your best with your other ability´s
  • You bake him a big cake and do your best decorating it even when you know he has eaten much better thinks you hope he tastes the love.
  • You don´t decorate since you think that would be silly you get some candles and some wine from his birth year.
  • One day you found a mug with a silly design it has a cat on it and the handle is the cats tail it´s so silly that its cute plus the cat looks quite a lot like Elizabeth so you buy it.
  • You spend pretty much the entire day before his birthday preparing everything and it makes you quite happy.
  • Jumin find it cute till you shush him out of the kitchen so he doesn´t see what you are making him.
  • He finds that a bit silly but then he probably is just pouting.
  • In the morning you make him breakfast what he finds really sweet you actual make him kinda cat shaped pancakes.
  • They quite failed but Jumin appreciates its still.
  • He really loves all his presents he finds it almost sad to destroy your packaging even when it´s horrible.
  • Jumin loves the silly mug and will take it to work.
  • He really enjoys the cake and says it´s the best he ever had.

***GROUCH’S COLOR ART SCAN EXPLANATION***

Forward: The post to just the finished artwork of Mortem3r can be found HERE.

For those who might be curious, this is an mild tutorial on how I deal with my scans of my illustrations. I use a Canon LiDE 110 scanner that was around $30 and recommended on amazon.com. I use a custom set up of Color Photo, no auto-adjustment, and 600 dpi ALWAYS. The scanner does pretty well, but it really makes things yellow and washes out reds a lot.

Images 1: This is what the raw scan looks like. Sometimes I’ll work on tinted paper, but Suzy most certainly was not so you can see how dramatic and frustrating scanning traditional work is! Luckily I own Photoshop.

Image 2: Image<Adjustments<Color Balance
After pulling the image into Photoshop CS5, first thing I do is is crop and reduce the image size by around 40-60%. Color Balance is great to reign in that yellow tint. What’s pictured is the main adjustments in midtones, and althought I will sometimes adjust the highlights and shadows.

Image 3: Image<Adjustments<Curves 
Curves is used to adjust the value balance (white, grey, and black) and the saturation (how greyed out or righteously overblown a color is) of an image. The easiest way to learn what manipulation the curves does is to move it to an extreme. Making it super wavy blows out a color or can make is really grey. Curves is tempermental so for my work usually gets a very slight adjustment. Basically this made the skin tone more true to what the illustration looks like when you’re holding it in your hand.

Image 4: Image<Adjustments<Levels
Levels is basically a simplified Curves. While you can skip Curves and use Levels, Curves really is a better tool for balancing color. Nowadays I use Levels just to get the background to be more white.

Image 5: Stamp tool! 
My artwork is always very dirty with speckles and smudges on it so I use the clone tool to find a spot and clean it up. This is definitely the most time consuming part, but it’s worth it for a nice even background without affecting the color of the artwork.

Image 6: Finished artwork and watermark
I always put a watermark on my work that’s very simple. In this case it’s just “Artwork by smiling-grouch.tumblr.com” and put in a spot where it can’t be cropped out but won’t be distracting. I use Gotham as my typeface of choice and put the color usually to a grey, but it really depends on the image. I also make sure that they watermark’s layer transparency is set to around 15-30% so it’ll show up but not dominate the image. If it’s a dark image, the watermark will be white. If it’s a light image, black will do. Since Suzy is both black and white, I used a grey color. 

So that’s pretty much it! I hope this helps you fellow artists out there. Please feel free to shoot me a message if you have questions, and don’t forget! The worth of art is completely subjective so don’t worry about making “good” art or “bad” art. Making art is the important thing! As my friend @thegorgonist told me, “Done is Beautiful”. Once an artwork is done, the imperfections don’t matter. You made a thing, and that is beautiful!

Good luck!

PS: Yes, I was watching Game Grumps, and Dan and Arin, if for some reason you see this, people in Portland say “Cheers” all the fucking time. I can’t tell you how many guys would say that to me after I handed them their latte. 

what she says: im fine
what she means: is Pedro’s behavior an extreme attempt to fully step away from the “all round great guy” perception? does he actually prefer Peter over Pedro, or is it just another way to alter his image? how much guilt is he carrying over Hero et al? why have none of flatmates voiced concern beyond the ways in which they are being affected? will we ever truly know what mental state he is in?

Monica and I set up a date to shoot last week, her features are so amazing I was stoked to get some images of her. When I told her what I wanted she told me she had never had her photo taken in a two piece bikini set and that she didn’t have a “model body”, this was going to be fun. She looked great, of course!

We roamed the area and made some stops, it was awesome that she felt comfortable and was open to my ideas, I always appreciate that.

These are the images we made. <3 I hope she feels and sees that she’s beautiful and her body is lovely and she can wear whatever she wants and model if that’s what she wants to do, we should all do what we want and makes us happy.
