i think you're spot on with the 'no webs on shabbat save for health/life or death situations.' with jewish observance that's always recognized as a valid reason to not participate in something. my mom and i don't fast on yom kippur because it makes us sick, and that's totally kosher, so i'd say the same would follow with superheroics haha. also ty for writing peter parker as jewish, bc i don't see how people can see him as anything other than jewish and yet in most spiderman material he's not

thank you!! the decision to portray peter as jewish came about after i read an interview with andrew where he said that, “[peter’s] jewish, it’s a defining feature.” and it struck me as really sad that none of that was allowed to come across in the movies… and for what? there’s nothing in the licensing agreement that says he can’t be jewish, and it surely wouldn’t have killed them to have peter reference his judaism even once? so it became like, okay, sony/marvel, peter’s going to celebrate chanukah and go to shul with his aunt, bite me.

also!  i just wanted to say that while googling re: superheros and shabbat just now i found this document, “the halachos of superheroes,” written by a real-life actual rabbi, which answers jewish legal questions pertaining to superheroes and it’s adooooooooooooorable:

anyway, according to this OFFICIAL document, here is the word on whether or not a superhero may violate shabbos: 

HOWEVER, peter is forbidden from wounding or injuring anyone on shabbat in non-life-threatening circumstances:

and even in life-threatening circumstances peter is bound to minimize violation of shabbos to the extent of his ability.

Honestly, y’all have no idea how ready I am for Cena vs Reigns. I am dying for these two to get their hands on each other.

They have both said a lot of s***t to each other in the weeks leading up to this. And even off camera and off script, you sense the rivalry between them. With Roman’s “I wouldn’t say we’re friends and I don’t care what his opinion is of me” and Cena’s “I’m not ready to give up this spot”, it’s really neck and neck with these two.

You know Cena has been in the company for almost two decades and is the biggest star of the company.. but Roman has been in the company about 5 years and is already up there with him.

#1 Full-time merchandise seller, praised by co-workers and Hall of Famers (anyone who’s known the guy behind Roman has never spoken badly about him), is the most googled wrestler, has MILLIONS of followers across his social media platforms (20 million on Facebook, 2.56 on Twitter), Roman is in several of the “most viewed videos” on WWE’s YouTube channel, has Match of the Year over and over with all of the faves, and is adored by fans because of his down to Earth personality and special moments he shares with fans.

All of that is a really good place to stand with only 5 years in the company. And he continually says that every match/promo/segment teaches him something so he can progress and get better.

Roman just wants to represent his bloodline and raise the bar even further and I cannot wait for him to stand across the ring from Cena tonight. And beat some respect into him to the point where “holy shit” is the slogan of the day.

At the end of the day, talk is just that.. talk. We gonna see who brings the fight.

(My prediction: I don’t think either man will win. One coming out victorious seems either really rushed or really detrimental.)

Exit polls says that Merkel won her fourth term, how do you feel about it?

I expected this outcome, and while I would love a liberal government, I actually don’t mind Merkel that much, compared to other conservative rulers *ahem trump* she is still fairly liberal. So we could have a worse leader, she is not a total catastrophy imo.

What I am absolutely enraged about is the fact that the right wing racist ass party AfD has ~13%, which makes them the party with the third most votes (after the big liberal and the big conservative party. The fact that they convinced such a large portion of our population while using blatant nazi rhetoric, is nothing less than absolutely appaling and scary.

10 Simblr Questions - again!

Answering @danjaley​’s questions this time! I cherry-picked a few, cuz there were a lot.

The boss of EA is in front of you asking for one statement about The Sims before he goes away and makes TS5. What do you say to him? I’d tell them to slow the eff down and bloody think before rushing another game and pissing us off again! >_<

Do your Sims know of you as their Sim God or are you the invisible deity to them? Some days I’m a good Watcher, other days….well… >_> My game my rules amirite!? XD

How do you see yourself connected to your Sims? Do those of you who say you love them, really mean this? How deep is your game? I love the sims I make that I use the most. They are my precious pixel babies. But EA’s premades can burn for all I care.

Can we learn anything from our Sims to take away into our real lives? And/Or can you give us an example of how The Sims has influenced you outside of gaming. Learning how to create CC is a effing skillset, I can tell you that. U_U

What do you get inspiration from ? My favorite tv and game fandoms. I love recreating things that I see, and challenging myself to get things as close to just right as I can. I love things fanciful/magical/otherworldly.

Do you sometimes want to create a sim story out of a dream you had ? I have a harder time just whipping up something from out of my crazy brain, than just going off of what I can clearly see in front of me. Every time I’ve imagined something willy-nilly, it has never come out how I pictured it.

What’s your favourite build you have ever done OR EA made build?

My Howl’s Moving Castle lot.That mofo literally took me like 2 years to make, no lie.

How many screenshots do you have? *mad cackling*

Give or take a couple hundred .psds for Photoshop, there’s your answer. O_O And that’s just everything since I joined Tumblr. I lost everything from 2009 - 2011 on my original external harddrive.

Have you ever tried to make a custom world? Whether by the Create a World tool or in a save, it doesn’t matter. Yes, when the CAW tool first came out I tried to make Neverland from Peter Pan. I got pretty darn far, too – got the geography and terrain and physical landmarks down. It was a lot of fun, honestly. But the program started glitching on me when it came time to add the lots, when I was like 75% done. It never fixed itself, no matter how many times I uninstalled/reinstalled. Oh well.

Imagine you have no responsibilities. Would you rather play the Sims a little everyday or spend two days a week playing as much as you want? I’d rather sim a little every day than go for long stretches of time without simming at all. But alas, RL gets in the way a lot, so sometimes I can’t sim until the weekend, or on days when my schedule is lighter.

anonymous asked:

So as you said Raymond is still sporty in the southern au, does that mean he might also do like bull riding competitions and horse races and stuff too? I'm curious

No prob!! feel free to send all the questions you want. I love answering them and expanding the AU

I’d actually been thinking about that before. I’d love to see him in a bull riding competition, like that could be what Rad is like 👀💦💦💦 about. like Rad tries it out and gets thrown but Ray does it and out does everyone else, just the shear strength it’d take to hold on. But i could also see other competitors (and rad, if we’re keeping him 100% in character) saying Ray has an unfair advantage cause he’s robotic.

HORSE RACING THO!!! I’d love to see Raymond racing horses, his horse Rosaline (was the final vote on her name) is very strong and powerful. She’s gotta be to carry him around.

note: Shannon and Darrell are lighter weight than Raymond, who is like solid robo-muscle, so their horses are more average than Raymond’s. I was unsure if i wanted him to have a huge Belgian Draft or a Clydesdale, but i thought the Clydesdale suited him more because it’s more majestic, so i went with that. end note

Rosaline could probably carry him across the finish line several times. And it’d certainly be a sport he could compete in where people wouldn’t be able to say he had an unfair advantage. Cause he’d be so heavy, it’d really be a true show of Rosaline’s power. He’d fuckin spoil her tho. Lots of pets and brushing, the best feed, lots of time and space to run around.

tbh one of the first things i thought about with Ray and his horse was one of those typical scenes of him horse back riding out in the field and Rad seeing him. And it just being cheesy and romantic looking ;v;;;;;;

I am pissed off right now. Bangtan has been recording for MNET for 23 hrs now, going on 24. That is like beyond the capacity of a human being to work. I don’t know how they are doing it, but kudos to them. 

Yet this doesn’t excuse the kind of treatment they are receiving. They are human beings. They need rest and no to all of those who say Bon voyage was time for them to rest. I am sorry to say but at that time too they were working on the album. There is no way possible to put out an amazing album such as HER without sacrificing their health each day. 

What makes this worse is that when you look at other groups, they take their time releasing albums, but BTS keeps going one after another only disappearing off to work on another album and then the whole comeback shazam starts again. 

Its all about the money and the profit that can be gained. Thats what Bighit cares about, they don’t give a shit about the boys. They will only treat them nice till the time they can milk money from them. They are the only group so to even think that they will get rest in the near future specially at the peak of their career is BS. 

This really hurts a a lot of people because this is not what they deserve. After all they have accomplished they deserve some rest, one without camera’s and media publicity. 

You know what really bothers me? When people don’t text you for a really long time and then you text them one day and they say you disappeared (and sometimes get upset about it?) Like, I’m not the one who always has to start a conversation. It’s not fair for you to say that I disappeared if you never text me first. If I’m always the one who has to text first I will stop talking to you because I’ll feel like youre not interested in talking to me so it’s really not fair to say that I’m the one who disappeared.

I just like talked to him for a second at church. I had snapped him numerous times being like “oh I’m gonna tell you about this thing when I see you in person” but my mom had to rush out the door. I almost chickened out on saying anything at all but I had to give something to someone and he was right there, so I walked up.

I was standing like right next to him. He smiles at me and I don’t even smile back because I’m like “!!!!!” And my heart basically stops. I’m just standing next to him as I give this thing to this other person.

I say,

“I know I said I was gonna say stuff to you but I gotta leave right away”

I didn’t even process what he said next. Then he asked me about what I was giving this other person, kinda (he knew about them and has one too he just asked how many I made). I answered.

I looked at him and said,

“Yeah, I gotta go.” I mumbled something about the things I had made and then left.


This was such a small encounter, if you can even call it that, but it just has me feeling… Joy. Not necessarily giddiness or excitement, but just… Peace. Idk.


The way he smiled at me..

anonymous asked:

Sorry to say this as anon.. (I'm a wimp) I'm really sorry about what happened to you with this guy. His behavior was definitely a sexual assault. Refusing to use a condom when the partner requires it is considered a crime. You are brave to be open about it to warn others. If he keeps contacting you while being in a relationship, I think you could publish the screenshots. Not in order to bully them, but to warn the girl. Maybe that would be a turn off for her and save her from trouble.

I went to her personally and warned her and did show her those screenshots where he was asking me to come drinking with him when I go to Japan at the end of this year. Yeah I sent her all of it and all the proof I had of his behaviour and it was extensive, there was a lot of it.

I left that with her and she said she will decide and make her own mind up. It is difficult, I got the impression she still intends on meeting with him. That’ll be her choice.

As for me, when I lived in Japan I was kinda put in an awkward situation to meet him since he showed up at Nagoya almost unannounced and I had to pick him up. I felt bad otherwise. And after it happened I was kinda in shock so I joked about the whole weekend on my Social media. That’s just how I dealt with difficult shit. But it was actually really awful and I have to acknowledge that I was taken advantage of and my consent was violated.

People that called me an idiot for seeing him don’t realise this is how it played out. He barged into my life as soon as he found out I touched down on Japanese soil and travelled all the way from Tokyo. I didn’t listen to those alarm bells which should’ve told me he’s a weirdo and left him at sakae station.

I'M SO OVERWHELMED SEEING ALL OF THESE MESSAGES ABOUT DNA- I was beating myself up so much for not really loving the title song (and also quite a big chunk of the album), because I love and support the boys with all my heart, I just... the album didn't captivate me the same way the others have, and the edm vibes aren't what I like musically. Like I'm so proud of them exploring musically but apart from serendipity, outro and sea, I haven't listened to the songs more than a few times... I feel bad

dont feel bad :( its okay to not like every release! as long as youre respectful about it (aka not saying “this is trash” or “they didnt even try” etc.) then you’re okay. at the end of the day music and being in the fandom should be for your own enjoyment - if youre not enjoying this album, so be it, you don’t gotta force yourself to! it doesn’t make you any less of a fan ❤️

Clairaudience help?

So at night i consistently hear spirit chatter, none of it really makes sense to me as it’s just a few random phrases here and there. It feels kindof like thoughts in my head, but i know they aren’t mine, if that makes sense? It used to happen as a kid too, but it freaked me out for the longest time, so i would try my best to shut it out, which worked for a while. Now i’m kinda open to it, and it’s starting up again


Well i really want to get more in tune with the things around me, be it spirit, angels, guides, elementals, whatever else. How can i strengthen this enough to communicate with them? Are there any tips you have for developing or using clairaudience regularly? Are there things spirits WONT say, so i know what’s my thought and what’s them? Any other clairaudients out there want to tell me about their experience/how they use it? Honestly just looking to learn some things about this weird thing i do and talk to some people about spiritual stuff! Anything you can tell me about this would be appreciated. Reblog, message me, send an ask, however you want to is good! Hope you all have a nice day

Everyone at my school is making fun of my little fren and her daddy. ;-; I tell them it's not nice but idk what else to say. I don't want to let ppl know that she is a little since that's her secret. •^•

you don’t have to say anything else — what you are saying should be enough. you don’t need to give a reason for why they shouldn’t be mean. it just isn’t nice to make fun of others, because their lives are none of your business and don’t effect you… simple! ✨ if they were nice, respectful people, they’d see that and stop what they were doing. but… some people just bully. 

the best thing you can do is keep being a good friend for your friend and her daddy, angel! 🌸💓 distract them from the meanies with the magic of friendship hehe~ 💫 show them that there are good people who care about them and that those bullies aren’t worth their time!

anitax26  asked:

Okay, i had this thought for a while now, so i'll just say it. What if Luci or Aza is gonna die in the last ep? How broken would the other one be? Or the people that know them?

If you’re asking me in the context of VS, then i have to say i have no idea. but probably, with the way fava and nina been written, they would be shock for a min and then forget about it in the next min if it’s azazel who dies, total no reaction if it’s lucifer who dies.

but if it’s in general context, between the two of them, it’s lucifer who wont be able to deal I think.

Even if he loses Lucifer, Azazel would be angry and frustrated and definitely devastated while also going on a rampage for a while, but he just needs a purpose, something to focus on, and he’d recover given enough time.

also, the other high-ranking demons would grumble for a while but they’d still follow azazel i think, esp with the backing of the rest of the fallen angel army behind him. I just don’t think Azazel would take over Lucifer’s position as second in command to satan tho, 1) bcs pain and reminder, 2) he’s not cut out for overseeing-leader-type.

OTOH, unlike Azazel, Lucifer’s kinda all or nothing guy; either he cares so very deeply, or he cares not at all. Either he goes big, or he doesn’t do anything at all.

and since he actually cares very much for azazel, if azazel dies for real then he’d try to 1) resurrect him through forbidden means (not zombify), 2) if that fails, destroy the whole world, the logic being “i don’t need a world where he’s not in.”

there’d be no reaction from the other demons bcs they all kinda get wiped out in lucifer’s destruction lulz

hi! a day or two ago, there was a post going around regarding jyn erso. it’s not a huge secret, but a lot of people don’t find her necessary to rogue one. which is fine! there were a lot of problems with her character, and it’s good to think critically about what we consume.

however, i really liked jyn overall, so i added my two cents to the post. two people responded, and i don’t want to leave their points unacknowledged or ignore them! so:

i read through both of your posts and i really agree with a lot of your points!! thank you for taking the time to respond! however, jyn is still a character that i value at the end of the day and i don’t think there’s much more any of us can say to convince the other, so i think i will just leave it at that. i really value you taking the time to explain, though! both of your insights were really valuable and i’ll for sure take it to heart.

if anyone wants to see the post, here’s the stuff:

thank you! :) hope y'all are having a good weekend!

 I’m so livid about this entire PewDiePie situation.

He’s been given so many chances, and yet he is still making loads of money with people protecting him and not once has he genuinely apologized or seemed sorry about the things he said. It’s always followed up with dubstep music, jumpcuts, and other sarcastic remarks and jokes.

The Firewatch creator also wants to take down Felix playthrough of the game, as well as ban him from buying/playing any other game by them and people are mad about that? Like, any sane god damn person would disassociate themselves with someone throwing the N-word around, as well as spreading anti-semitic bs

And some people will defend him with “Words are just words”, and I’m losing my shit over that. I’ve heard that excuse when using the n-word, the f-word and generally when saying other problematic shit. Words are NOT just fucking words. Words are what got humanity here, words are how we communicate, words are what keeps this fucking shit society moving. If you stand by the mentality of “Words just being words”, then you NEVER get to be emotionally affected by words every again. Because words are just words and hold no meaning or value to them right?

No, they fucking do, and the people who say this shit knows that, but it’s different when its racial slurs and general assholery, because they don’t want to look bad.

Words are not just words. Words hold meaning. Words hold history. 

Words define you. And if you throw them around without thinking twice and you don’t respect history and the people it affected and will affect, then you fucking don’t deserve an audience like the one Felix has.

“But PewDiePie doesn’t mean it! It’s just something he says”, cool, doesn’t make it better. Now he isn’t an ACTUAL™ racist, he is just, you know, normalizing racism

I know many of you are nostalgic about him, because he used to be a somewhat decent person who could apologize and all but y’all gotta realize that it gets to a point, where you can’t defend him anymore, and if the anti-semitic shit didn’t make it for you, then please let this be, because there’s nothing redeemable about this.

i have thought a lot about censorship and what is “appropriate”. not a lot of people know this, but lolita was written to show what we allow on our bookshelves: there being no swear words in it meant it was free from censorship. a book about child molestation was allowed because it didn’t explicitly use the word “fuck”. he wrote it to show we don’t really care about protecting children, and it ended up being seen as a romance.

someone once told me - actually, many people have - that lgbt content isn’t appropriate for children. any content. not just kissing. i’m drowned in questions: “won’t the parents have to explain it?” “kids shouldn’t be thinking about sex at this age, or do you think differently?” “what will the kids think?”

at six i saw disney movies. people kiss and get married. i didn’t ask “what does that mean.” i didn’t ask “are those people going to have sex?” i didn’t ask anything, because i was six, and no six year old thinks twice about these things. nobody ever “explained” being straight to me, it was a fact, and it existed, and i was fine with that. why would being gay require a thesis, i wonder.

someone once told me that the one of the reasons people hate lgbt individuals is because they can’t see us as anything but sexual. we’re not people, so much as sinners. that they don’t see love, they see sex. just sex. it’s perversion, not a matter of the heart. only of the body.

i think i was in my early twenties before i saw someone like me. 

how old were you, though, before you saw violence? before you saw sexual assault on tv? i think something like that is only pg-13, and if it’s implied, they can get away with anything. i remember watching things and learning about blood, but knowing sex - sex was what was really wrong. sex was always rated r. sex was always kind of a bad word. i was told a lot that i wasn’t ready.

i had a dream last night that i made a site where people could ask any question they wanted about sex and get answered by a professional. it was shut down in moments because 15 year olds wanted to know if it should hurt, if “double-bagging” was a real thing, if this, if that. we shudder. don’t let the children know about that! 

but at thirteen i had seen enough violence it no longer struck me. i couldn’t say “fuck” but i knew that if you break your femur, you can bleed out internally in under half an hour. in school i wasn’t allowed to write about loving girls because what would the administration think - but i could write about wanting to kill myself and people would say how lovely, how blistering.

i have thought a lot about censorship. sometimes people on this site try it with me: don’t write this, don’t be so nasty. some of it is intrinsic. we know as people with a uterus not to complain about “that time of the month”, we know better than to talk about sexual assault (how shameful), we know that talking about a vagina is somehow scandalous. i can say “dick” and nobody questions me. some people only refer to the bottom half of me by “pussy”. they won’t wrap a mouth around “vagina” like it’s poison to them. even discussing this, that the language halts, that there’s an intrinsic desire to say “girls” instead of “women” - feels naughty, illicit. not for children.

the other day someone suggested i make my blog 18+. i said, okay, it deals a lot with depression and other problems that might be for a mature audience. oh no, they said, that’s not it, i think that’s helpful. i said, okay. so what is it then. well, you’re gay. you write about loving women. and i said, i don’t write about sex often and they said. it’s not about the sex. but wlw isn’t for a general audience. teenagers aren’t ready.

oh.

lolita is recommended for high school and up. i think about that a lot. i know girls who love it, who say it speaks to them on a deep level. it’s beautiful prose, after all. that was the whole point of the novel. something that looked like a rose but was intrinsically awful. i think about how if i was a model they’d want me to look young, thin, prepubescent. how my body would be sold and how through the mall i walk by images of barely-clothed women while mothers cannot breastfeed in public without fear of retribution. 

i think about how i can write a novel about violence and it will be pg-13 but if my characters say “fuck” twice it’s inappropriate. i said fuck three times so far in this post, which makes it only appropriate for adults. 

i think about that, and how my identity is something that people suggest lines up with a swear word. that people shouldn’t talk about it. that it’s a vulgarity. bad for children, harsh, confusing.

fuck. i love women. which one makes this only for those over eighteen.

anonymous asked:

Oh my stars your art is amazing!!! Do you think maybe you can make a shading tutorial sheet? owo

Hey there Anon! Sure thing! I’ll do my best to explain the process of how I usually do things in regards to coloring and shading. I’m not the greatest at Explaining, so I’ll do my best to keep things as crystal clear as possible!

Step 1: Lineart
I’ll start with Lineart purely because this step is important to the coloring process in one regard, and that is making sure the entire line layer is closed without any holes. Even the smallest little gap will make the selection process hard later, and we don’t want that. So the cleaner lineart you have, the better. I’m going to go ahead and use my Monster Hunter Generations Huntress for this.

Step 2: Selection
Either in Photoshop or SAI or whatever you use, click outside your character and any other negative space surrounding them. This means…basically anything that’s not your character. Then go to Selection > Inverse and invert the selection. You should have something similar to what I have below. This makes it so much easier to add colors without having to worry about all the little nooks and crannies that could mess the cleanliness of the drawing up real bad.

Step 3: Flat Base
Create a new layer beneath your line layer with the selection still active. This will be our color layer. Remove the visibility of the line layer, and fill the remaining “Silhouette” with a dark base color. This makes those nasty corners look a bit cleaner, as sometimes if there is a lighter color your computer will want to make them stand out pixelated. Again, this is just for cleanliness beneath the line layer. Turn your line layer back on, as they will now act as barriers for the fill bucket tool. Make sure the entire silhouette is filled, and that no lines were accidentally selected! You want a see a completely filled and flat color if you turn the line layer off.

Step 4: Flat Colors
At this point you can lock the transparency of your Color Layer, and go ham. Either with the pen or a fill bucket, figure out how you want to color your character and add in the flat colors. Notice I’m on the same layer as the Base that we made. This is so those lines still play nicely with one another. Clean up where necessary.

Step 5: Analogous Color Gradient
Well, we don’t really want our character to be too flat, do we? This is where the color wheel becomes your best friend. Select similar colors with the Magic Wand (like I’ve done her skin tone here) and using the color wheel, choose an analogous (that means “close by” in color wheel terms) color to add a bit of depth to the color. For skin, I usually go with a red or a bronze, sometimes purple. Use the airbrush for this. Then, deselect and select another color to gradient, until all the colors have some degree of new color to them.

See? Now things look interesting! We added some blue to the greens, some purples to the reds, some blues to the grays and so on and so forth.

Step 6: Shading
Okay, here’s where things get interesting. Time to shade. Make a new layer between the Line Layer and Color Layer, and make sure you make it a clipping group/clipping mask. This is so it won’t go anywhere that you don’t have color. Set it to multiply or linear burn (whichever you think looks best) and bump the opacity down to about 40-50%. Choose a color (or color-value gradient, if you have drastic value changes in your piece that make light and dark values not play well with the single color you picked, and swap between those) that you want the shadows to be; I like deep pinks and purples. AVOID BLACK. I first use the Pen tool to get down “hard” shadows - shadows cast by hard materials, close shadows, and inorganic materials. Once I’ve got those down, I head on over to the softer areas, such as the skin, hair and cloth and alternate between the watercolor and marker tools to give “softer” shadows. There’s no real law to this, you just have to know where shadows fall and how they behave and  work with those three tools to get the look you want.

Step 7: “Highlights” - Rim Lighting
Okay, these aren’t really “highlights” in the correct sense, but adding sort of “rim lighting” around forms really helps make a picture pop. To do this, make another layer above the shading layer, set it to “screen” and keep the opacity at 100%. Then, get really familiar with your CRTL key because you’re going to be color sourcing a lot. To add a rim light to a form, select the base color of that form, and use the marker to trace along the edges. For example, I picked up the nude from the skin, the silver from the dagger, the gold and maroon from the hair and the tawny brown from the skull to use on those specific objects. Any place you want clean works well, but the edges of forms works best for this technique. Additionally, if you’d like, you can create another layer above the Screen Layer and set it to Linear Dogde, and do my “glowing eyes” technique on anything you want to stand out, such as the metal of the belt, gold objects and of course, eyes.

Step 8: The Overlay
Almost done! While your photo can now stand alone as “finished”, there’s one more thing that I enjoy doing, and that’s adding a simple color overlay to bring the whole picture together. This is done by flattening all the layers you have so far (you’ll want to “Merge Down” in order from bottom to top or “Flatten” to avoid the layers going crazy on each other) into one layer. Then, make a layer on top of that one, set it to a clipping mask, and set it to “overlay”. With the Airbrush, choose some colors (I prefer soft pinks, blues and violets) and go along the “edges” of your character with a BIIIIIG brush. This kind of resembles soft ambient lighting or shadows. I just think it makes the photo look nicer.

TA-DA! And Now we’re done!

And there we go! I hope that helped, and I also apologize cause this ask sat in my box for awhile and I never got around to it until now. :P
I’d be happy to answer any questions y’all have, but this is the simple basics! Remember to practice practice PRACTICE!

What ur fav PKMN region says about you
  • Kanto: Likes animals, underestimated, but extremely determined. Strong morals.
  • Johto: Unpopular opinions, petty, but usually right. Don't test them because they have Receipts on u from before u started talking.
  • Hoenn: Mom friend, sends sweet texts to friends, helps u when ur down. Takes bad things in stride (even if they are salty).
  • Sinnoh: Either the best or worst person. No in between. If you think you're one, you're probably the other.
  • Unova: You don't know what's going on really but that's ok, you either pretend you do or you just dip. Loud and proud though.
  • Kalos: You try not to complain too much and usually don't talk a lot in groupchats. The sting of rejection is a common feeling.
  • Alola: Super Extra™ (and probably won't admit it) but nice. Usually butts heads with other fans & has to get the last word in.
How to Choose a Career

1. Think about what you really enjoy. What brings you alive? What could you do for hours – even if you weren’t paid to do it?

2. What do others say you’re good at? Sometimes we’re blind to our gifts and strengths but usually other people will comment on them. What do others notice, and constantly affirm?

3. What’s your work style? Do you prefer a more structured environment? Do you prefer to work with other people or on your own? Do you like to follow guidelines and be told the rules, or do you likely to be creative and have autonomy?

4. Where would you like to work? In a hospital, in a school, in an office, in your own home? Would you prefer the type of job where you travel frequently, and perhaps to different countries all around the world?

5. How important is money to you? Are you content with “just enough” or do you want to earn a huge amount? Do you want a regular and predictable monthly income or would you prefer that your salary was based on bonuses and commission?

6. How important is the work-life balance to you? Some careers require you to work long hours, to travel on a whim and to put your projects first. Others give employees more flexibility. They let you choose your hours and the days when you will work.

7. How do you feel about having to work shifts, on evenings, at weekends, or on public holidays? There are many careers that require you to do that.

8. How well do you function under pressure and stress? Again, decide if that is something that you mind in a career.
