My Inktober Tag | Day 21: Spectrum Noir LG4 + TN4 with Piper, who has a really bad feeling about this….
Tools: Prismacolor Cool Gray 30%, 70%, and Black. Sakura Microns and white gelly roll. I ended up cropping the adorable dragon sticker out of this one, it kinda messed with the spooky mood I was going for, haha…
Funfact: Piper has terrible asthma… which makes running from monsters and ghosts really difficult. She’s usually armed with extra inhalers though. Usually.
Thank you for today’s two performances of Haikyuu!! A Summer of Evolution. Also, Shohei-kun who acted previously as Noyassan came! He is the sempai who made it great since the first show. Double Nishinoya Yuu.
From Shohei’s blog:
And, with Fuchino-kun who is acting as Nishinoya Yuu this time.
He is a very cool Noyassan.
I am sure he felt some pressure in participating this time.
But just like that, I am simply captivated by a strikingly manly and dynamic Noyassan.
As I thought, Noyassan is so cool.
Fuchino-kun who is acting as Noyassan right now, he is really cool〜^ ^
From now on, please continue to show them a cool Noyassan!! (x)
She’s an incredibly refreshing antagonist because unlike all the boring angsty cryptic villains of other anime (or media in general) she understands the usefulness of other people. That’s something we can see when she tells Cinder not to underestimate how important other people can be in plans.
Cinder wants to kill Ruby and not work with anyone but Salem isn’t that impulsive or stupid. She’s a really, really cool neutral evil antagonist who’s starting to grow on me a lot.
My current job has me working with children, which is kind of a weird shock after years in environments where a “young” patient is 40 years old. Here’s my impressions so far:
Birth - 1 year: Essentially a small cute animal. Handle accordingly; gently and affectionately, but relying heavily on the caregivers and with no real expectation of cooperation.
Age 1 - 2: Hates you. Hates you so much. You can smile, you can coo, you can attempt to soothe; they hate you anyway, because you’re a stranger and you’re scary and you’re touching them. There’s no winning this so just get it over with as quickly and non-traumatically as possible.
Age 3 - 5: Nervous around medical things, but possible to soothe. Easily upset, but also easily distracted from the thing that upset them. Smartphone cartoons and “who wants a sticker?!!?!?” are key management techniques.
Age 6 - 10: Really cool, actually. I did not realize kids were this cool. Around this age they tend to be fairly outgoing, and super curious and eager to learn. Absolutely do not babytalk; instead, flatter them with how grown-up they are, teach them some Fun Gross Medical Facts, and introduce potentially frightening experiences with “hey, you want to see something really cool?”
Age 11 - 14: Extremely variable. Can be very childish or very mature, or rapidly switch from one mode to the other. At this point you can almost treat them as an adult, just… a really sensitive and unpredictable adult. Do not, under any circumstances, offer stickers. (But they might grab one out of the bin anyway.)
Age 15 - 18: Basically an adult with severely limited life experience. Treat as an adult who needs a little extra education with their care. Keep parents out of the room as much as possible, unless the kid wants them there. At this point you can go ahead and offer stickers again, because they’ll probably think it’s funny. And they’ll want one. Deep down, everyone wants a sticker.
“I remember when Stiles first got his Jeep.
It belonged to his mother.
She wanted him to have it.
The first time when he took a spin behind the wheel, he went straight into a ditch.
I gave him his first roll of duct tape that day.
He was always getting into trouble.
But he always had a good heart.
They were taken so quickly that Lance and Keith couldn’t even put up a real fight. They succeed in defeating their Galra captors, but their victory comes at the cost of crashing onto a planet populated by violent, remorseless criminals. Or, the wretched beginning of Lance and Keith, Space Cowboy Mercenaries, and the possible end of the Red and Blue Paladins of Voltron.
I always completely forget that people my age who I think are cool might be homophobic. When I meet someone really fun and genuine the idea just doesn’t cross my mind. Anyways it sucks because it’s a terrible feeling to discover someone you thought was amazing actually hates your guts.
You know what you did was wrong. Question is, how’re you gonna make things right? Maybe you were trying to be cool. But take it from a guy who’s been frozen for 65 years, the only way to really be cool, is to follow the rules. We all know what’s right, we all know whats wrong. Next time those turkeys try to convince you to do something that you know is wrong, just think to yourselves, What Would Captain America Do?
