i want to write a novel that becomes such a classic that several decades from now high school kids will hate me for writing it
and have teachers misinterpret what you’ve written
The sad moment when you realize how alone you actually are. No one ever messages you first or texts you first or anything. So it gets to the point where you don’t want to put in the effort with people who don’t put in any effort for you, so you end up spending your life at home, never going anywhere.
YAY THEY ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE THEM.
snow white is so perfect WOW
A Gifset made for my sister (and me). :D Anastasia and the Baker from Cinderella II. Say what you will about Disney sequels, some of them have great moments.
“You don’t like her. My mother don’t like her. She’s a dog. And I’m a fat, ugly man. Well, all I know is I had a good time last night. I’m gonna have a good time tonight. If we have enough good times together, I’m gonna get down on my knees. I’m gonna beg that girl to marry me. If we make a party on New Year’s, I got a date for that party. You don’t like her? That’s too bad.”~ Marty (1955)
i always thought this ship was so fucking adorable. even though anastasia is a stepsister, when i was little, i could see she at least had a little bit of a good heart, unlike drizella.
pretty sure this is the exact seen that made me attracted to huskier guys.
is it bad that i’ve
watched hair tutorials for girls as future reference
for when i have daughters
because i want to be the kind of dad that knows how to do his daughter’s hair
this is the cutest thing I have ever read omg
body positivity is a really great thing!!! but please remember that being thin is not a guarantee of self-confidence, or an excuse to insult someone.
“Most girls WISH they looked like you.”
That’s the one that hurts me the most. I never WISHED to look like this. And it’s really not my problem what other girls WISH they looked like. So stop shaming me for looking the way I do just because I want to put on a few pounds.
Yes, I realize I should be grateful for the body I have, but if I want to change how I look, you have no right to guilt-trip me about it. I’m not trying to look a certain way to please you, or to put down any other girl who wishes she looked like me. I want to look a certain way to please myself, and it’s really none of your damn business.
Ouch, this hit close to home.
“One of my favorite things to do with long-running manga I like (or used to read) is go look at the first pages of the story, then the later pages, and see how the artwork has changed/improved. It might sound weird, but it reminds me that these pros are still growing artists, like me.”
When I get into an artist, I like to read about them. I know some people think the only thing that should matter is the art, but I really like to find out about the person who makes it- where they studied (if they went to art school), what inspires them to draw, their supplies, etc. I seem to have no problem finding info with American or European artists, but when it comes to manga, I either find out very little about the artist or all the info I find is in Japanese, so I can’t read it. And when the series isn’t popular, I can’t find out anything about the person at all. So, while I may like the manga, the artist behind it feels very distant to me. They’re just this faceless figure somewhere on the other side of the globe that happens to draw a comic I like. As terrible as it sounds, they feel less human to me. And when an artist feels less human to me, I start seeing their skill as being this unreachable level of perfection. Logically, I know they practice and work their ass off to get good, but I can’t help that slight feeling of helplessness.
But then I go back through the chapters they drew and I see how their skills have improved. It reminds me that their style isn’t some Godlike impeccability. It’s organic- it shifts, changes, and grows- just like my art and everyone else. They’re just artists, great artists, but still artists, and they’re still experimenting and finding themselves within the artwork they make.
I did list the artist for each manga at the bottom of the confession, but in case anyone can’t see them or wants the titles of the series, here they are. From top to bottom:
*Alive: The Final Evolution - story by Tadachi Kawashima, art by Adachitoka (art group formed by 2 women)
*Katekyo Hitman Reborn - Akira Amano,
*Fullmetal Alchemist - Hiromu Arakawa
*D. Grayman - Katsura Hoshino

So much truth!!!
Art is a life long lesson, I’ll keep saying it. Even professional artists, as long as they keep drawing, they will always improve and change.
the janitor at the junior high drew these in the cafeteria oh my god
WHY IS HE A JANITOR
can we talk about how amazing the backgrounds are in some of those 90s fighting games
Robert Downey Jr. says he won’t sign for The Avengers 2 unless his cast mates are fairly compensated
The news of Robert Downey Jr’s $50 million+ Avengerspayday becoming public knowledge is the…
I was actually going to mention it but the last paragraph covered it. There is no reason for any actor to be paid so much when they are doing, in actuality, very little work. (Millions of dollars, really? Even anything in the six figures is excessive.) Sure it takes talent and skill, but once they’ve finished their lines (and even before and in between), who does all the work? (Not to mention they don’t really have to memorize the entire script. Kind of why I feel more admiration for actors in plays than TV shows and movies, but that’s a tangent xP)
I have a bit of a beef with Downey in this. While I do like that he wants his co-stars to get more fairly paid, I see no reason why he can’t just give them some of the money he’s earned. (Better yet, donate it, but that’s another rant.)
