will happiness find me

Its yo HoMe GiRl D, pre-everything (she/her) 23.
Today … I have a beard … Its been 5 days since I’ve been able to shave my face … And I guess in a weird way I feel so distant from my self .. I haven’t been able to work, I’ve been more alone and depressed these last couple of weeks then I had been … And I haven’t yet found the energy to pull my self out of the rabit hole. I was look I ng through pictures .. Which normally makes me happy when I find my self in a woolly mammoth moment .. So I thought I’d share some of the good ones with you guys 😏 … Makes me feel like I’m still me .. Under the hair 😶
Your HG D,

15 Million Bosses, Day 4:

How has the channel impacted your life?

There’s a TL:DR at the bottom as this one’s a little long.

Ok so I’m going to be honest. I’m a couple of years older than him so I can’t say Jack’s helped me discover who I am, he wasn’t there through my dark times. No doubt he would have been a champion for me if circumstances were different. YouTube wasn’t part of my interests until my mid 20s. He hasn’t guided me in the same way he has for thousands of others. If anything he reinforces what I believe in when he talks about more serious stuff: to be kind without being naive, to try to see the good in others, to know it’s ok to ask for help when you’re stuck and to do what makes you happy.

However

 He HAS been instrumental in helping me find the spark to pick up a pencil and draw again. He’s helped me find a way to breathe in this fast paced world. It was a thing I thought was lost forever. Because of him I’ve developed a brand new style and I can see a massive improvement in my skill. I have still got a long way to go but I’m glad I can take that journey. 

Getting lost in a concoction of the sound of music, the smell of tea and the taste of Jaffa Cakes as the ink flows on the page melts the stress away for a few hours. I don’t have to worry about things at all when I draw. Seeing the end result of an idea on paper is one of the best feelings in the world. 

My family have accepted that it’s a big part of my free time and I’ve even had some requests to do a drawing from some of them. If I ever get the chance to speak to him, I’ll tell him how much it means to me that he helped me find my creativity that I thought I’d have to keep buried as I got older. 

TL:DR

“Do what you do. Do what makes you unique, do what makes you happy" 

I do that because of you igniting that flame again, dude and I can’t ever thank you enough for it. You helped me find a moments peace once more.

Ok, everything is exactly the same except Cas kept his female vessel’s cute green hat ....

Andrew Minyard didn’t look like much in person, blonde and five feet even, but Neil knew better. Andrew was the Foxes’ freshman goalkeeper and their deadliest investment.

Why the Harry Potter fandom is important

Last night after walking down Regent Street and marvelling at the Christmas lights and how very much I love London(which happens anytime I walk around central London), I sat waiting in Leicester Sq. Me and my Hufflepuff fellow @andyouknowitis were off to see the midnight showing of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. 

After a little while, the scarves began to emerge. A girl sat down next to me wearing a Slytherin scarf. Later replaced by a girl in a Ravenclaw scarf. Two Gryffindors came up to me and went ‘Would you mind taking a picture of us? We saw you and thought ‘She’s wearing a Hufflepuff scarf, we’ll ask her’. Me and the two girls got chatting about fandom and the excitement for the movie and they wandered off. I sat back down and then two girls in robes walked by and grinned at me. 

A guy dressed as Newt walked by and jokingly cursed a group of people, more friends in scarves began to appear, wands came out, hugs were had. The cinema was crowded, full of posters and people squealing over them. In the very long queue for food, one guy found out how long the adverts were and I asked whether he was a Ravenclaw, turned out he was. 

Eventually we all found our seats, shuffling around in the dark trying to place drinks and popcorn, balancing the IMAX glasses and jostling for space. The lights dimmed, the Warner Bros logo appeared on screen and we all cheered. Here we were, one big nerdy family in the middle of the night about to experience new wizarding world material. 

The movie was brilliant, we all laughed a lot, we cheered and clapped and gasped. We marvelled at the beauty on screen and were so very aware of how much we just really bloody love magic. 

It’s been nine years since the last book came out, back when most of us were in our teens and  early twenties. And yet he we still are, smiling at the people in scarves and laughing in a movie theatre, nearly ten years on. Older and adulter but still very much in love with this fandom. 

After the movie, we wandered off to House of Minalima, a place in Soho run by the people behind the art of Harry Potter. We got to talk to them and look at all the amazing things surrounded us. The creaky, wobbly old house imbued with magic whilst the drunken Muggles cavorted outside. It felt like the Leaky Cauldron, hidden away in London at 3am. We chatted to Potterheads, it’s London, you don’t talk to random people but with this, how could you not? 

The world has been a bit rubbish of late, it’s terrifying and scary and a lot of unkind people seem to be winning. But we still have Harry Potter, we still have kindness and joy and excitement  and magic. We need that, we revel in it and thankfully this fandom ain’t going anywhere. In ten years time I’d still like to be grinning at people in fandom scarves like we’re part of a secret society. We got this Potterheads, we ain’t going nowhere.

Happy Birthday Leigh Daniel “Dan” Avidan! (March 14, 1979) → “Don’t make fame your goal. Make your goal doing what you do to the best of your ability, and that’s something no one can take away from you.”

“Dan is one of the best human beings I’ve ever met in my life…if Dan says you’re cool, then you’re cool.” ~ Arin Hanson

“Danny is literally the worst person I know…one of the least talented and most selfish people I’ve ever met. I also think Danny is a total diva.”  ~ Brian Wecht

“Danny is a cute motherf*cker.” ~ Vernon Shaw

“He’s like 7 feet tall and a palm tree of hair.” ~ Barry Kramer

“I peer review Dan all the time. I look at him like ‘His thumbs look stupid’. I mean Dan looks like a big f*cking muppet, you know.” ~ Ross O’Donovan


“I would say Dan’s whole personality is badass positivity. He’s an awesome rock star, a hyperactive 8-year-old, and the world’s wisest oldest man, all living in the same brain.” ~ Phoenix Carver

The Sun: Your Guiding Light

Your sun sign represents your pride, ego, and what you like about yourself, as well as what qualities you admire in others. All the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun; this celestial body gives our world structure, stability, life, and light.

When you do things for the right reason, you are more likely to find happiness and success. Your sun sign, the constellation that rules your inner guiding light, indicates what that (right) reason might be.

You should do things…

Aries: for yourself, because you fucking feel like it.

Taurus: because you want to, and only because you want to.

Gemini: because you want to know more about the world around you.

Cancer: because they make you feel safe, cared for, and comfortable.

Leo: because they bring you attention, love, and recognition.

Virgo: because they help you become a better person, and help others too.

Libra: because they bring you inner peace and sate your thirst for justice.

Scorpio: because they make you feel deeply and resonate with your inner truth.

Sagittarius: because they’re fun, and make you smile and laugh.

Capricorn: because they pave the way to your future.

Aquarius: because they help you genuinely feel connected to other people.

Pisces: because they help merge your internal fantasies with external reality.

Example/explanation: If a Sagittarius uses, say, Cancer’s reason as their ‘guiding light,’ they are likely to end up feeling trapped and stuck. With Virgo’s reason, they might feel bored, anxious, and burdened. With Pisces’ reason, they may feel lost. A Sagittarius who does things just for fun, instead of to establish future security (like a Capricorn) or to get attention/recognition (Leo) is more likely to accomplish their chosen goal, and have a good time doing it. Things come to you more naturally if you approach your goals with the correct mentality.

*also applicable to your rising sign

so, i noticed that my human bill turned a year old this month (ayy same birth-month!) so I thought it would be funny and interesting to compare him to the first real drawing I ever made of him (theres more but they are all sketches and TERRIBLE) and OH BOY CHECK THIS OUT the guy changed a lot! I love it tho, it’s a good change and he went through a lot of that but I’m super at peace with where he is right now. I really wanna draw my AU as a comic now.
