years of unhappiness

> tfw ur really attractive crush won’t stop telling u terrible pickup lines that work on u but u have to maintain professionalism bc ur at work so u just suffer silently and die inside :( 

Dude so, instead of going to see Fifty Shades of Grey this weekend

how about you go see The Last Five Years?

One is an adaptation of a terrible book with questionable themes and messages. The other is a brilliant, lifelike musical, also about a relationship with sour elements, but one that is never abusive. And it has Anna Kendrick in it. And you will cry.

Basically, support J.R. Brown, not E.L. James.

I’m like 3000% sure the brushes I use are at their default settings, except obviously the crayon one which i fabricated after years of unhappy pencil results it’s more of just a textured brush than anything else tho. I also used that pencil brush for the lines in the witchsona drawing and this thing of Travis

Also if you’re a PS user I am v sorry, I literally only use SAI 100% of the time 8′u

And another thing, if it’s to hard to see the settings on this here is a link to the image in full 

hope u somehow find this useful even tho those are pretty mcuh default brushes

My mother is not one
to take matters into her own hands.
She waits,
patiently,
for things to come to her.
Nine years in an unhappy marriage
and still she wears the ring.
Says it’s not because she honors the
relationship,
but because she likes the way the light
reflects off of it.
Most of the the time
what she wants
never comes,
but still she talks about it
in “what if"s and "I wish I"s…,
telling me things would have
been different
if only she had
married what’s his name
or gone to school
or not had kids
or run away while
there was still time.
I listen to her as I
make plans in my head
on what to do
and who to become next.
I do not sit and wait.
I go,
haphazardly,
straight into fires,
burning the entire time.
You would not think
that we are made
out of the same substance,
but my mother was once
a flame,
until she started believing
that she needed
gasoline
or somebody’s help
in order to be
lit.

All this cure theorizing is making me so, so glad I jumped ship from Stelena. 

I understand how tempting and exciting it is to think of Elena being human again because it means she might fall back in love with Stefan, but like…

You stop to think about it for a second, and you realize how sad that is. That Elena needs to be human to understand his value.

Caroline sure as shit didn’t.

Friday January 10 1969: A rather historic piece of audio where George announces to John he is leaving the Beatles. The audio is muffled, but you can clearly hear 

George: I think I’ll be leaving the band now.

John: When?

George: Now. 

Trust George to make quitting the Beatles sound like he’s popping out for a pint of milk. 

For some background: George’s decision came after 2-3 years of feeling increasingly unhappy and frustrated with the Beatles dynamic. Unlike the documentary suggests, however, George did not quit after a terse debate with Paul about his involvement on Paul’s songs two days before (although it didn’t help), but rather, an unrecorded argument with John earlier that morning. 

Two days later, the band met at Ringo’s house as per George’s request to sit down and talk everything out between the four of them alone. Unfortunately, John also took Yoko, who proceeded to sit at the table and speak for a silent John throughout the meeting. George, disgusted, called John out on his bullshit (using those words), and walked out of the meeting - a move which wasn’t unsupported by Ringo and Paul, judging by their reaction the next day.
