wow someone actually wants to do that

Y’know… I have to sit down sometimes and remind myself what it is I really want from my art.

I draw because I enjoy it for the most part

but the thing that makes me happiest is when I can make someone else’s day a little brighter.

And to do that it doesn’t matter if I’m satisfied with how my drawing came out. All that matters is that I can bring at least one person out there a little tiny bit of joy from seeing what I drew.

Not really even for my sake because once I post my art it’s left my hands. I’m done with my bit.

But once it’s out there for people to see and interpret and enjoy it becomes something else. And if that something else can get someone to chuckle or smile when they wouldn’t have otherwise. Or if it can make them feel any kind of emotion beyond meh

then that’s all I want from my art to be honest.

Every now and again someone will tell me that my art makes their day

and honestly someone saying it one time makes my entire week brighter. Because I know I was able to make someone happy!

I forget about that every once in a w hile and I just need to remind myself.

that, and when I’m drawing because I love drawing who the flipper cares about how good or bad it looks in the end. Just so long as I have fun drawing it!

Please consider
  • Keith actually being really easy to talk to
  • But nobody approaches him because he gives off an unfriendly vibe
  • People always get the wrong impression
  • But sometimes people actually have to talk to him and when they do they realize that he’s not such a bad guy???
  • People getting flustered and embarrassed when they see what Keith is really like
  • Cause he’s actually really nice and sweet and “wow I can’t believe I ever thought this guy was an asshole”
  • “it’s been an honor flying with you boys” yeah how can this guy possibly be an asshole
  • Him giving people advice and genuinely wanting to help but people taking it the wrong way
  • Being really confused when people he doesn’t even know not-so-subtly try to avoid him
  • Oblivious Keith who doesn’t realize people actually do wanna talk to him
  • And when people try to talk to him he thinks it’s a joke because rarely anybody does that????
Actual conversation from the other day
  • Guy: So, how long have you and your boyfriend been together?
  • Me: I don't have a boyfriend.
  • Guy: Aw, that's too bad. You're pretty enough to be with someone.
  • Me: ...wow. What a jackass comment.
  • Guy: It was a compliment.
  • Me: Yeah? It sure didn't sound like one.
  • Guy: So why /are/ you single?
  • Me: Because I like being by myself.
  • Guy: How do you ever expect to get married with an attitude like that?
  • Me: I don't want to get married. I don't want a relationship at all.
  • Guy: You don't mean that.
  • Me: You don't know me.
  • Guy: What if someone else liked you? You wouldn't just go out with him? You could force yourself to like him.
  • Me: No, because no one is entitled to me just because they like me nor am I obligated to pretend that I reciprocate their feelings and string them along. I refused to do that just as much as I refuse to continue talking to you. (At this point I walked away.)
  • Guy: (shouting after me) You just don't know what you want!
  • --
  • (And after running into me later that same day, he had the nerve to tell me that I had offended him.)
If you’ve had 4 glasses of wine and you keep checking your phone with that 1% of hope that he’s as drunk as you and he’s going to text you, you’re not over him.
If you find excuses to drive through his neighborhood, you’re not over him.
If he still crosses your mind every time you post a snapchat and you check to see if he watches it, you’re not over him.
When are you going to learn that telling yourself you don’t care won’t work?
Why is it so hard to accept the fact that something is over and grieve it then forget about it and move on?
What are you going to do when you get drunk and break down and tell him you miss him and he doesn’t respond?
You can pretend you’re over it as much as you want but you’re not actually over it until someone mentions his name and you can honestly say “wow I haven’t thought about him in a while, I wonder what he’s up to.” And until that point, it’s all acting. Just because you don’t talk to him anymore or you stopped throwing yourself at him, it doesn’t mean you don’t still want to. That’s the difference between pretending to be over him and actually being over him. You have to genuinely not want to care about this person anymore. And that’s the impossible part.

it’s 2015. don’t like or reblog art unless the artist gave permission for reprints, and definitely don’t reblog it if it doesn’t have a source jfc.

this is not that hard of a concept. theft = bad. knock it off.

if you follow someone posting stolen art, unfollow their sorry ass. giving these idiots notes and follows is encouraging them to keep stealing.

yeah we all say “oh wow source your art uwu stealing is bad”, but until we start actually fucking doing something those words are meaningless. art theft will continue unless you actually start giving a damn and practicing what you preach.

this is my challenge to all of you: for the entire year of 2015, i don’t want any of you to reblog something unless it has a source and permission from the original artist. if you see someone you follow posting or reblogging unsourced art, unfollow them. even if they’re your friend. don’t refollow them until they agree to stop.

i’ve been running my blog with that policy for over a year, it’s about time some of you guys start picking up the slack to. don’t you dare give any bull crap reason as to why you can’t, this is such an easy thing. THERE’S LITERALLY NO EXCUSE NOT TO.

make 2015 the year you actually start giving a damn about artists.

Imagine Joker breaking up with you to protect you, but he tells you that its because he hates you, so after a year, the next time he sees you, its with your new boyfriend

Joker: I hate you. And do you know why I hate you? Its because you’re a stupid, lonely, worthless bitch who no one could ever love or want to love. You’re ugly and pathetic and weird and while I  may be the Joker, the real joke is that you actually think that you would be wanted by someone.


Joker: *thinking* Is that Y/N? Wow, she looks beautiful, and sad, but still as beautiful as ev- wait who is he? WHY IS HE KISSING HER?!

Joker: Well. Guess that the real joke was on me….

I was so worried during that whole chapter because literally keep arya as far away from sexualized violence as possible but literally that end was all I could ask for and more, it was an actual reversal of the repeated “rape” motif, a subversion of what the mummers and raff and all of this society wants to do to her as a young girl and that transgression is what kills mercy and makes her arya, the way that even as a child she weaponizes her sexuality to the point of actual murder, that she was able to cross someone else off her list in a method that is so exclusively closed off to men, that is just WOW grrm wow thank you man wow

Man, the way some shippers talk, I feel sorry for them. Like, you don’t have friends you’d do tough shit for? You don’t have friends that would do tough shit for you? That sucks. My bff lives on the other side of the ocean, but if her life were in danger, I’d go through fire to save her. If someone was planning her doom or say wanted to falsely imprison her, I’d do what every it took to stand in the line of fire to protect her. And yet, somehow, I actually wouldn’t want or expect to fall into bed with her afterwards, cause, like, I love her like she’s my sister. If you don’t have friends like that - y’all need to get new friends. Just wow.

Sara explaining 'Shock To Your System':

Sara: I wrote the song as if it’s from the perspective of someone singing the song to me, actually.

Tegan: Wow.

Sara: I sort of wrote the song as if… not necessarily a romantic person either, I wrote it more as like a mentor, or somebody, like… this is going to sound cheesy, but almost like a guardian angel or somebody who is coming in and sort of snapping me out of the place that I was in, and sort of talking to me about the things I needed to change and the things I needed to do, and um…

Tegan: Apparently your guardian angel also wants you to get some, because one of the lines is “you should be out driving people wild”.

Sara: Well it was more, it wasn’t about getting some, it was about just getting out and living your life and being…

Tegan: Driving people wild.

Sara: Well you know, getting out and being present, and…

Tegan: And wild.

Sara: Not wild. There was nothing wild about it. It was more a song about, you know, someone maybe who’s retreated or is depressed or has stopped engaging in life in a positive way, and I wanted to song to be from the perspective of someone who’s giving advice. So maybe it’s like me now, giving advice to myself back then.

Tegan: (pauses) I like it.

Sara: I’m glad. I like it too. It’s a really interesting arrangement too and I was glad that we didn’t really do a ton to it in the studio. A lot of the other songs we really focused on creating more traditional arrangements or more pop arrangements, and this song we sort of let it be what it was.

Tegan: This is one of the songs you said was influenced by film, too, you said you wrote this one shortly after you saw Drive. It’s kind of got a vibe of that. A little bit.

Sara: I definitely wanted it to have a mood and not necessarily… in my mind it didn’t necessarily need to be a song we considered for a single or even a fan favourite, it really was just a piece of music that…

Tegan: Um, it would not have been put on the record if we didn’t think it would turn out to be at least a fan favourite.

Sara: Some fan favourite. Some fans like it.

Tegan: I think people are gonna love it. So far people are really liking it. You really give it. So far on this record, people are calling it an ambitious record, I think sonically and vocally and melodically we’re trying a lot of things, and I think this is a standout for you. Plus, my singing at the end is great.

Sara: Yeah. It’s cool, too, because the song is about being humble, and so you’re really…

Tegan: I thought the song was about driving people wild.

Text | Lydia Olivia
  • Lydia: HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHA OMG. DID YOU ACTUALLY GET YOUR HAND STUCK TO THE DOOR?
  • Nate: WOW LAUGH ALL YOU WANT BUT MAYBE THE REASON I HAD GLUE ON MY HANDS IS BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO DO SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE.
  • Nate: BUT MAYBE SAID SOMEONE DOESN'T DESERVE IT

Um. 

I’m going to come out here, because I feel like it needs to be said to someone before I go crazy. I’ve kind of said it in passing before, but I’m going to say it officially. 

I’m heteroromantic gray ace. 

…That actually made me feel so much better. Wow. Okay. So, basically this means for me that I usually don’t experience sexual attraction. Usually I’m pretty sex-repulsed, honestly. For the longest time sex completely grossed me out. I didn’t want any part of it, ever. But I still fell in love, and I still felt romantically attracted to others. I didn’t realize that there was a such a thing as asexuality yet, or that romantic attraction was different than sexual attraction. I just figured I’d feel it with my “One” or whatever. Or maybe I’d grow into it or something. It wasn’t a big deal to me.  

Flash forward to high school, when I know there’s something different in how I’m attracted to people than how others seem to be attracted to people. I learn about sexualities in more than a theoretical sense. Now I actually know people who identify as gay, lesbian, bi, trans, ace, and others. And I start wondering if that might be me. 

Let me also add here that I am a virgin. I have yet to kiss someone, so I don’t know if I would enjoy that or not. But I know I like cuddling. I like holding hands. I like forehead kisses and nose kisses and cheek kisses. I like hugs. I like physical contact. But any sort of sexual contact feels weird. 

Sometimes I go through a weird time where I’m kind of horny or something and sex doesn’t sound that bad. I read a little smut and it doesn’t freak me out. I don’t know what’s up with that, it just kind of happens sometimes. But the other 85% of the time sex is not my thing. At all. 

I don’t know if I have the right words to describe this. I’m just glad to know I’m not the only one who feels this way. 

I’m not sure if it’s really something worth coming out about, but I felt like I had to tell someone, and you guys have always been super supportive. I love every last one of you, and I hope you have a lovely night. 

this scene actually is pretty sad

because felicity is talking to oliver in a playful way like when you do with your friends about something bad happening between you and the guy you’re interested

and oliver is in front of her, and he hears that she finally found someone who is actually interested in her and he has to swallow down and kinda laugh it off with her when actually it’s eating him inside because he’s a guy who is interested in her and he has to let it go cause he can’t be the man he wanted to be for felicity

and wow

fuck you

rude

bye

Okay now this is exactly what you don’t want to do when you know someone with Future Vision.

There’s no point in worrying about what might happen unless you’re the one with the powers. Knowing will just make you paranoid.

Oh wow he actually fucking died. Even if it was a cute simulation that’s still pretty hardcore.

ARE THOSE FUCKING BEEDRILS

WHAT ARE BEEDRILS DOING HERE.

“I suddenly regret asking so many questions.”

And as such Steven never asked follow up questions ever again.

Shot Through the Heart

“We’re driving fast in my car
We’ve got our riot gear on but we just want to have fun
No we’re not looking for violence, no oh oh oh
Tonight we want to have fun

No one’s the same as they used to be
Much as we try to pretend
No one’s as innocent as could be
We all fall short, we all sin”

~Fast in My Car by Paramore

When I got this prompt, I went all… “OH MY GOD THANK YOU SOMEONE ACTUALLY PROMPTED KATE!” (yeah, because I told people to do so LOLOL HAHAHA!)

Thank yooooou, switchheart for the prompt aaaah!

I loved Kate’s old costume. The new one is a little… “eh” for me. 

These colors go so well with her, though. Wow. 

Hope you guys like this!

Check out the other color palette meme fills here! 

anonymous asked:

It's just that, how can you expect to be a true eremika shipper, or adopt the eremika ship as your otp, if you approve something like that, which completely opposes the former. One thing is to find the idea of Levi and Mikasa bonding cute and sweet, but now this is honestly going overboard. And could you please stop pulling the "I do and feel what I want to" card? Especially towards someone that actually gives away the time to care about it?

omg! OMG! 

so there is criteria to be an eremika shipper now?? like .. some kind of a membership with rules??? wow that wasn’t there when I signed up!!!
so If I like Rivamika too you’re going to take away my “true eremika shipper” card ??? am I kicked out from the em fandom now??? please tell me! I am sick worried!!

please please please don’t give away anything from your time because I repeat: I do and I feel what I want! and I also ship what I want!

what exactly is your objection on this?? it’s the same way you do what you want.. aka following me or NOT following me!
no one is paying me money to ship eremika or to draw for it you know, I did it because it’s what I wanted to do NOT because people controlled me!! 

I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that you’re actually trying to control what I do in my blog! honestly???

ROSE OUT! 

WTF am I seeing about Norman

Wow people, it is his life, who he is with and what he does with his life, we don’t control it. True, Honest, Actual fans, should leave Norman alone when it comes to love and relationships, we should be happy for him if he is with someone. And also its up to him who he is also friends with, let him have a life people and let him be with who ever he wants and let him do what make HIM happy. Being Jealous and controlling and possessive is not an attractive feature.

Dating Neal Caffrey Would Involve...

¤ Going out on dates when he’s not working. Most of them being at semi-fancy to fancy restaurants
¤ Going to a museum at least once a month and Neal correcting all the mistakes in the tour if he knows it’s wrong
¤ Sometimes you walk him to and from work and on those days he’ll buy you food from a stand whether it be french fries, a hot dog, a smoothie, etc.
¤ Tying his tie on more than one occasion not because he needs help but because you want to
¤ He lets you wear his fedora every once in a while “How do I look?” “Beautiful.”
¤ Moz not liking you at first but eventually he talks to you and the two of you become friends “Did I ever tell you about the time Neal accidentally stole a service dog?” “He what?!” “Yeah! So we were…”
¤ When Peter met you he was surprised because ‘Wow Neal actually someone really good for him.’
¤ You and Elizabeth go out at least once a week when Peter and Neal are at work “You’ll never believe what Peter did the other day.” “What did he do now?”
¤ You got hurt once because of one of Neal’s cases and he became super overprotective after that but you reassured him you would be fine
¤ Him having multiple artworks focusing on you whether it be sketches, various forms of painting, or just plain photographs. He never lets you see them because he says he can’t do your beauty justice
¤ Having date nights in where you two just chill on the couch while you eat take out and watch tv
¤ Between the both of you, you guys have a huge collection of books. There’s not enough room on the shelves anymore so you stack them on the floor and some on the tables. “We need to invest in more shelves.” “We don’t have room for more shelves!”
¤ Being close with June because you hang out with her when Elizabeth and Neal are busy
¤ When you two had your first Christmas together, you told Neal you wanted to decorate a bit early prior to the holiday. He let you and when he came home from work he was surprised how nice it looked. He thought it would be over done and super tacky but it was kinda subtle. Christmas lights around the place, a Christmas tree, and some little odd and ends here and there. There was already gifts under the tree. “Do you like it?” “It’s amazing.”
¤ Whenever you talk about something you’re passionate about he looks at you like your the only person in the world
¤ Someone almost always interrupting your dates. “What do you need, Moz?” “I was wondering if you wanted to go and check out that new exhibit at the museum?” “Moz, I’m in a middle of a date.” “Well, bring (Y/N) along.”
¤ Going on late night walks through Central Park and sharing stories. “Did I ever tell you about the time Moz accidently stole a service dog?” “He what?!” “Yeah! So we were…”
¤ Neal is the kinda guy who would give you his jacket when you’re cold no matter how much you protest
¤ The mornings where your hair is as mess, your wearing one of his shirts and your making breakfast are the moments he lives for. He’ll wrap his arms around you and say something like “Morning, beautiful.” “Neal, I’m a mess right now.” “Even more beautiful.”
¤ Whenever Peter comes by to get Neal you always offer him something whether it be coffee, muffin, or simply water. He usually declines but the coffee at work isn’t the best according to him and Neal.
