you are super important to me

anonymous asked:

Ok so I have a dilemma that I need help with. I really want to become a good artist but when I draw I just end up feeling really shitty about my art and seeing all of its imperfections and wobbly lines. How can’t get past this while doing good work and being at least satisfied with what I’ve made?

okay hecc, what im about to say is gonna sound horrible at first but trust me, you’re gonna need to know that before you read the super hyper encouraging part of it. 

you will never be 100% satisfied with your art and unless you tell yourself you’re a good artist, you wont be a good artist. thats just the truth of the matter. being 100% satisfied with someone you created yourself is not fucking incredible (and applause for anyone who can) but it’s also super hard to achieve. an artist is always their own worst critic. 

listen, going out to study in the field is going to seriously SUCK for the first year, because everyone is SO IMMENSELY TALENTED and it’s like, “oh shit im not cut out for this at alll!!!” but honestly, after a while, you’re going to realize “shit bro im an artist with skills in a certain area and flaws in another and THATS COMPLETELY REASONABLE AND OUTSTANDING.” 

Think about this

you will always see the imperfections, but not everyone is going to. you have a piece that looks in-fucking-credible to other people because they don’t focus on your mistakes, they focus on what you did well! as an artist, i’ll say with every single piece i’ve ever done, i can point out 10 things horribly wrong with it. and then someone says “WOAH THATS SO FUCKING COOL?!?!?!? I HOPE A TRUCK RUNS OVER YOUR FINGERS THATS SO GOOD!!!” and i realize like “fuck what my mind thinks, i worked HARD AS SHIT for this drawing and to be in the position im in and I DESERVE TO FEEL ACCOMPLISHED” even if it’s a doodle i made in 2 minutes. 

your wobbly lines will improve with constant practice (unless you wanna turn around and use it for a stylistic choice wink wink) if you dont want to go down the art route like me, breaking my back and doing it daily, then thats ALRIGHT TOO!! Practice just means you want to improve whether its daily or weekly or monthly so on so forth, and you cannot, CAN NOT!!! improve if you dont TRY TO WORK FOR IT. MAKING A MISTAKE IS GOOD. IT MEANS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DONT LIKE ABOUT YOUR PIECE AND WILL FURTHER WORK ON LATER! YOU HAVE MADE AN EFFORT TO BECOME BETTER!!!

no work is perfect, i bet my class can all point out something we dislike or could be improved on in even something like.. Dali’s or Matisse or Picasso’s or whatever, but you usually skip past that because, shocker, they’re FUCKING INCREDIBLE HARD WORKING PEOPLE WHO DEDICATED THEIR LIFE TO THEIR CRAFT. LOOKING BACK, THEY’RE PROBABLY UNSATISFIED WITH THEIR OLDER WORK TOO! AS DOES EVERYONE ELSE!!! 

YOU DONT KNOW YOUVE IMPROVED UNTIL YOU LOOK AT YOUR OLD WORK!!! 

SO

PRACTICE YOUR FUCKING ASS OFF AND NEVER TELL YOURSELF YOU WONT BE A GOOD ARTIST, EVEN IF YOU MAY FEEL IT CONSTANTLY, BECAUSE THAT IN ITSELF MAKES YOU A BAD ONE.

Hi frisk, i've been dealing with my class for a year, bully and stuff and i still can't move on, any... advices ? and by the way, you two are adorable <3

(this goes for anyone by the way I feel awful this is an extremely old ask I’m so sorry it took me this long to reply to it)For bullies its important to know that their most likely not doing it because they have a problem with you. It can be because of them having their own problems that they only feel like they can feel better is by taking it out on someone else. That’s why it’s really important to not take it to personally, but if you are dealing with a bullying problem its super important to speak up, and tell someone about it, because if you don’t stand for it to stop now it might just become worse later, but if your looking for something to cheer you up I’d recommend partaking in something that makes you happy, or just doing something you think you would enjoy, or just getting outside doing something even if its just a walk it can really clear your mind, and its always good to look for support, and talk to people if your having these kind of problems. I hope this was at least a little useful I don’t really have any experience with bullying, and I’m like four I’m not the go to person for advise I just hope this was able to help anyone at least a bit, and if anyone is having bad depression or just feels stuck or under going hard ships just know their is always going to be someone their that loves, and supports you(like meeee), and everything does get better no matter what you might think were always here to support you, and as always stay determined.

here’s a frisk we love you ;_;

I asked my dad if he had done anything yet about Net Neutrality and he was all, ‘That old thing? It’s been going on for years. It’s not gonna affect anyone either way. The internet was the same was it is now before net neutrality was added.’ So I got super pissed at him and we fought and I left.

Anyways later that day he talks to me at home and he’s like ‘Son’ yeah? ‘I did some research on the recent net neutrality stuff and you’re right - What’s happening isn’t going to be good at all, and I wrote an email to one of our congressmen.’

Moral of the story is, if you don’t currently think this is a big deal, just listen to everyone else and assume it is. Even if you yourself don’t believe it’s that important, just take 5 minutes to write an email asking to stop the repealing of it. Because this isn’t about just you. It’s about everyone.

#Hey why are all of your OCs super cool?#And interesting?#I love this#His nose is gorgeous#His expression amuses me ~#Lovely!

HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Oh boy I have SO many?! Just to show some of the major ones (Zeke’s in there twice):


But Zeke, Emile, and Glass (below) are the most important in my story, so they’re the only ones whom I’ve written bios for so far.

The fact that you think they’re interesting FILLS UP MY ENTIRE HEART oh my goddddd

Zeke is my baby. He’s literally my whole soul. ;A; so if you like Zeke, I like YOU!

I LOVE ZEKE’S BIG OLE NOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just love drawing Zeke - PERIOD. His big dumb face brings me endless entertainment because he’s so ridiculous - everything is elongated and sharp.

AND GOSH HE’S SO EXPRESSIVE TOO!!!! That’s my favorite.

Look at this goobie. What a nerd.

But also a badass!

my favorite boy ;A; <3333

I could totally see Phoenix being one of those “I need to meet Trucy’s boyfriend first to see if I approve of him dating her” kind of dads. Like he knows Trucy’s smart enough not to date a sleazebag, but he wants to meet this guy for himself: just in case. 

And while Phoenix may seem like he’d be really stern/hard to please, I don’t think it’d really be all THAT difficult to impress him? Like you ain’t gotta be some super genius boy with acceptance letters to Harvard and son of a successful CEO to get the 100% approval rating: you just have to be a well-mannered respectable man that will treat his daughter right.

Speak your mind

So I went to school last week without makeup for the first time this year. I was really worried about it because I don’t like the way I look and feel really uncomfortable without makeup. But, after my very first class a girl that sits at the table next to me stopped me before I left the classroom and told me I was really pretty and it made my day and really helped boost my self confidence.



I think this is super important because she had no idea what was going through my mind and still made me feel good. If you have a nice thought, say it out loud. You never know if that person needs the extra boost

anonymous asked:

Okay but that last ask... The serenity prayer was something super real for me, not in a "my family is homophobic and strictly Christan" because my family is pretty accepting, while still being strictly Christan. It was more about Dan coming to terms and realizing the idea that you can definitely be gay and Christan, you don't have to just choose one or the other. Im more agnostic then anything at this point in time but I have friends struggling to accept they can be Christian and lgbt

It was so important to me that he kept his faith at the end. I’m glad people liked that 💕

NEW VIDEO: “A Matter of Life or Death: LGBTQ+ Refugees”: Being LGBTQ+ in the United States can definitely be difficult, but in some countries around the world you can go to jail or even be killed if you are out of the closet. For part 5 of my Pride Month series, “Chosen Family: Stories of Queer Resilience,” I met two incredible members of our community, Shadi (from Syria) and Sharifa (from Uganda) who went to incredible lengths to flee their home countries to avoid persecution. You’ll love them.

There’s no way I can know all of your circumstances, or your resolve. But for you to become number one without giving it your all, to completely reject your father… Right now, I think you should stop screwing around!

happy belated birthday selma!

The FCC wants to make the internet suck. Suck big giant hairy smelly balls. I’m not sure many people realize how bad they want to make the internet. Companies could make you pay extra for visiting certain sites. If they are in competition with Netflix, your ISP could block Netflix all together. It’s super bad.

This is really important. Congress is the only thing that can stop this. Which probably means we’re screwed, but I would like you to do me a favor anyway. 

Figure out who represents you. Send them a message. Give them a call. Send them a fax (yes this really works). Mail them a postcard. Do all of these things if you have the time. Don’t let your apathy take over. We need to find our willpower and make ourselves heard. Tell them Net Neutrality is good. The FCC can suck it. Keep our internet free from corporate tampering. Don’t let the internet suck balls. Pleeeease.

This Creator Is Proving Why Non-Binary Representation Matters
Web series are leading the way in moving beyond the gender binary.
By Lauren Strapagiel

A new wave of creators aren’t waiting for mainstream entertainment to catch up to the realities of gender identity, they’re just making it happen. And Kaitlyn Alexander is at the forefront.

Alexander is the mastermind behind Couple-ish, a web series they both created and star in. It centres on Dee, a non-binary, bisexual artist who enters into a sham marriage to keep their new roommate in the country. It’s instantly endearing, with LGBT inside jokes and characters that are too awkward not to love.

“I just saw this gap in media. I was not seeing people like me represented so it’s like, why don’t I just start doing it. Somebody has to start it,” Alexander told BuzzFeed Canada. “I just wanted to create a series where somebody who’s non-binary can be a romantic lead or at the forefront, and not a joke.” Often, says Alexander, characters without a fixed gender are non-human entities like aliens, and often a punchline. 

“Representation is important because it gives people opportunities to see themselves in media, which is validating. It can make you feel like you’re not alone, and that’s super important,” they said. They’ve even received messages from non-binary people saying Alexander’s work helped them explain their identities to their parents.

lance and keith get put into a mission together and keith sorta confesses that he values lance on the team more than himself, and lance can’t comprehend that bc he believes keith is super important too, so they are both rlly confused??


y’all… i tried…. i rlly did

dialogue under cut (my handwriting sucks)

Keep reading

Interviewer: “Do you think that Keith and Lance, while starting as rivals, have started to gain more respect for one another?”

Jeremy: “The team has really become a lot more like a family at this point. They still have their bickering moments for sure but definitely have that closer bond as a family. I think that moment in season three where poor Lance is really doubting how he fits into the team with six paladins now.

He’s basically saying, “yeah, I’ll step down and let you guys do your thing.” That vulnerable moment is knowing himself and just wanting to help for the greater good even if that means he can’t do what he wants to do. That moment is great where Keith goes, “No, dude. You are super important to the team. You should stop thinking all that because we need you.” ”

All Too Well | Pt. 4

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 | Part 9 | Part 10 | Epilogue

Summary: You and Yoongi shared a loving relationship with one another until you both agreed to end things and pursue your separate careers. But two years later, Yoongi is a member of the ever growing Bangtan Boys, and you are a new makeup artist for their upcoming tour.
Pairing: Yoongi | Reader
Genre: Fluff/Angst/Smut; Idol & Makeup Artist AU
Word Count: 5,848

.

Min Yoongi knew he was royally fucked as soon as he stepped through the doorframe into the dance studio—a time that seems so long ago, while in reality it’s barely been more than a week since the unthinkable happened.

The unthinkable, taking the form of hair he’s run his fingers through, a jacket he’s peeled off, skin he’s nipped at, shoes that led to daily departures, eyes that filled with tears, a heart that he’s broken, words that crushed his own.

It had been 2 years since he had last seen you or heard from you, and yet he responded so intensely to the mere sight of your backside that some people would have thought it had only been 2 weeks since you last saw each other. Or maybe even 2 hours, especially taking into consideration the way his heart lurched, the memories bubbling up so quickly across his consciousness as if they never truly had time to settle below the surface.

Just like the very first time he ever saw you during his street performances, the first time he talked to you to ask you out for coffee, the first date, the first kiss, the first time—they’ve all been moments in his life that made him feel like his heart had been set aflame, knocked him off his guard. Yet, they’ve all been moments in his life that consistently remained special and important to him, times that contradicted his initial belief that his existence would never matter to anyone. It was the first time someone had ever looked at him as if he had created the world and all its beauty within the confines of his own two hands. You made the time he wasn’t an idol, the time he spent longing and daydreaming and yearning for a better future, significant. You made his life mean something.

Until he abandoned you, so desperate to create a name for himself that he thought that belief would be enough to drive you out of his mind and therefore out of his life.

Yoongi has always loved you just as much as he loved his career—if not more.

And now you were back in his life, your physical presence haunting him even as you stood mere inches away from him, telling Bang Si-Hyuk that he didn’t need to worry about any sort of implication or possibility happening between the two of you, that the two of you were no longer under an qualms of being serious, that you had made the best of the life he left you behind with.

SUPPORT MARVEL’S RUNAWAYS

Hello, yes, please watch and support Marvel’s Runaways when it premiers. With the recent white washing of most of the New Mutants cast, take a minute to consider Runaways the answer to the same cried for diversity we’ve been begging from Marvel.

It’s about a kick-ass group of teen superheroes that decide to runaway and rebel against their evil super villain parents, and includes incredibly diverse characters such as:

  • Alex Wilder, leader and founder of the runaways, the black, genius son of mafia bosses
  • Nico Minoru, the goth, Japanese co-leader of the group that is the magical wiccan daughter of some dark wizards
  • Karolina Dean, a solar powered alien lesbian that literally turns into a fucking rainbow
  • Chase Stein, the son of an abusive mad scientist, has some gauntlets that manipulate fire, he’s the lone white guy
  • Gertrude Yorkes, the daughter of time traveling criminals with a telepathic link TO A DINOSAUR, in the comics she’s a wonderful chubby girl, in the show she’s portrayed by a non white actress (but I can’t find the specifics to let me know if you do) and she’s a hella feminist.
  • Molly Hayes/Hernandez, the 14 year old daughter of mutants with super strength and lots of funny hats, in the show her last name is Hernandez and she’s portrayed by a latina actress

Now if the show succeeds and get’s a second season, there’s the possibility of including other important characters like:

  • Xavin, the shapeshifting child of Skrull warlords, who is gender fluid and switches between their male and female forms and is Karolina’s love interest, and, although alien technically, their ‘human’ forms are not white
  • Klara Prast, a Swiss immigrant that was previously the child bride of an abusive older man, and she can control fucking plants
  • Victor Mancha, the cyborg son of FUCKING ULTRON, while he’s a cyborg he’s covered in human tissue and flesh and in Latino

Besides all the amazingly important and wonderful representation it includes, the story is also so intense and full fleshed out and deals with finding your place and the fear of turning into your parents and how to be your own person. And it touches on identity and dealing with loss and it’s really just so good.

We’ve been complaining about and demanding better than Marvel’s white washed male dominated line ups for years and this is the show to counteract all that and PROVIDE THAT DIVERSITY AND PROVE IT’S A SELLING POINT FOR AUDIENCES.

Compared to other subjects, math is sometimes very daunting because most of the content isn’t memorization, it’s understanding and applying

Figure out what type of learner you are: this sometimes doesn’t seem very important, especially for math, but it’ll really help with understanding concepts. There are 4 types of learners: auditory, visual, kinesthetic, and reading/writing. Focus your studying efforts on you type of learning and it will really help with the level of ease that you learn and study with

In class

Pay attention: should go without saying, but there’s really no way to learn easily if you don’t pay attention the first time the material is being taught to you. Engage yourself in class by asking questions and taking good notes. If your teacher allows it, recording your lessons can be helpful for auditory learners.

Take good notes: one of the best ways to engage yourself in class is to take good notes. In math you will always want to write in pencil (seriously, don’t do math in pen-whenever I try it takes 4 years off of my life). Trying to do your math notes in pen in class will just make it so much harder for you. Also, make sure to write down any practice problems your teacher does. Write out step by step instructions for the first few problems if you think you’ll forget the process.

At home

Make sure you understand: not understanding mathematical concepts is deadly, especially in higher level math classes. It’s not enough to be able to plug in numbers when told exactly how to do it, but you need to understand how you got to the solution. Learning this can be tricky, so you might need to go to a teacher or a tutor or a friend if you really can’t grasp it.

  • Memorize what you need to: this means formulas, proofs, laws, anything that you just need to know.
  • Make review sheets: I find doing this so helpful in understanding concepts. I just make a quick outline of the section with a brief rundown of how to solve each type of problem. I like to do this while looking at my textbook, but making review sheets from memory is a really great way to study. These can be as in depth as basically redoing your notes or as basic as something you jot down quickly on a notecard.

How to study: studying for math is actually not that hard compared to other subjects. To study, all you need to do is do practice problems (a lot of them). Your textbook probably provides a lot of extra problems (and hopefully a key with the answers) for you. Once you understand the concepts this is the only really useful way to study.

  • Note what you got wrong: after you’ve done some practice problems, write down every single thing you did wrong and why. It might seem like overkill but not only does it prevent you from making the same mistakes, it helps you understand why you made them. The goal is to have all the previous mistakes you made eliminated when you do more problems.

Study a little bit every day: this is the holy grail of math tips!!! Studying a little bit every day will relieve so much stress off your shoulders when it’s the day before a test and you don’t even know what it’s on. Do 15 minutes of problems a day and you will be so much stronger in math, I can almost guarantee. (This 15 minutes can be time spent doing math homework, you don’t always have to do extra!)

  • Keep practicing topics even after you move on: this is actually something I never do and I regret it every! single! time! The worst case scenario is that you completely forget something that you’ve learned before, which is decidedly not a good thing. Make sure that doesn’t happen to you by not stopping practicing something after you move on. because trust me: in math, nothing ever goes away for good.

Some more stuff

Know how to use your calculator: graphing calculators are truly a lifesaver. and knowing how to properly and efficiently use them will save so much time and stress. From not knowing how to do trig functions to incorrectly putting in scientific notation, not using a calculator correctly can also be a huge pain. Thant’s why it’s super important to know how to use it when you need to.

Look at online resources: if you don’t understand your teacher or you just need a bit of extra help quickly, looking online is your best bet. Some great math websites and apps are:

  • khan academy
  • ixl
  • art of problem solving
  • mit opencourseware:

Ask for help if you need it: going to your teacher for one-on-one help can be really helpful if you’re struggling. Tutors as well can be really beneficial when you’re having trouble. There’s no shame in having a tutor or getting extra help; do what you have to do to get the grade you want
