Did a small #tutorial for class on “How to Improve Storytelling in Panel Layouts”! Thought it might help some peepz around here!
You want everyone to be able to slot into a pride and prejudice au but no one can accurately fit into the niche that Mr Darcy and Elizabeth have cornered which is completely and uniquely deranged and sophisticated in a way no marvel character, nay, not even an over watch character, can dare compete with
miss piggy: you are sad and pathetic and small and far too green, both your status and wealth are an embarrassment, and your mother’s voice is shrill and painful… un. like. moi! *hair swish*
kermit: *stunned open mouth silence*
miss piggy: yet every day since i first saw you at the dance all i have been able to think about is how you are suitable for nothing in life but to be my bride! you are below me in every possible way but you simply must let me marry you!
kermit, flailing uncontrollably: THIS IS YOUR IDEA OF A MARRIAGE PROPOSAL?!?!

For a while now, I’ve been wanting to try making my own fan merch (it seemed really fun), but every time I thought too much about it, I’d get too intimidated… well, no more!
As of a week ago, I’ve opened an etsy shop :D (YAYY MILESTONE)
it’s mainly stickers and buttons rn, but I hope to make some cute charms(!) and even prints in the future. Please feel free to browse & DM me with any questions~ Thank you for looking!!♡
have you ever noticed you pick up little habits and phrases from the people you love? it’s no wonder our hearts are so easily broken when people leave. we become a reflection of the people that we care about and those personality traits stick with us even if the people don’t
I make my ramen the way a friend taught me in eleventh grade. Every fall, I listen to a playlist made for me by a boy I drove across a border to hook up with. I eat sushi because a girl who won’t talk to me anymore made me try it, and Indian food because my best friend’s parents ordered for me before I knew what I liked. There are movies I love because someone I loved loved them first. I am a mosaic of everyone I’ve ever loved, even for a heartbeat.
part of a series from last halloween where I drew a few of my favs as vampires… its everyone’s favorite mutant vampire chimp! Count Mojo Jojo~
bragging about his latest blood bank heist and/or about to show off his impressive pipe organ playing skills I’m sure P:
I dont want a career and I hate working. There I said it
I sent my children to a small private school that followed the “democratic education” philosophy – known in my distant childhood as “free-schooling”. Learning is entirely self-directed: children decide what they want to learn and when; teachers help them find the resources they need to do the learning they want to do.
Over and over I heard “yeah, that’s great, as long as you don’t want them to get into university” or “right – so you just throw the state graduation requirements out the window” or (most relevant in this case) “so why would they do any work, if no-one is going to make them work. Kids are naturally lazy!”
The thing is, kids are NOT naturally lazy. Anyone who thinks they are should take a toddler to the playground and try to keep the active little beast “safe” by following them around. Those little creatures can run, and they have no stamina limitations! Those kids in traditional classrooms who aren’t finishing their arithmetic homework aren’t whining “this is too much work!” – they’re whining “I’m BORED!” which is quite the opposite problem. There ARE kids who might be dismissed as being “lazy” – who want to curl up in a corner or stare out the window. Usually those are kids who are ill or damaged or recovering. They NEED the down-time, and they need their mentors to accept and affirm their needs! Kids came to the school with a history of bullying, or anxiety, or special needs. When they had had enough down-time and acceptance, they started to engage and plot their own educational course. And – because kids are not stupid and they know that matriculation and university acceptance create opportunities for them – their own educational course usually involved meeting provincial graduation and university admission requirements. And when they got to university, they felt in control of their university experience, because they were used to self-directed learning. I know this because both my offspring spent their entire school career at the free-school, got accepted into scientific specialties, graduated cum laude, and went on into limited-admission postgraduate education.
Adults aren’t a fundamentally different species from children. Like children, they hate being bored. Like children, they find repetetive meaningless tasks boring. Like children, they’re perfectly happy to “work” at things that are interesting, creative, relevant, and remunerative, unless they are ill or damaged or recovering. BUT the typical corporate office enviroment is itself harrowing or damaging to workers. Although employees’ maximum productive work timeframe is about six hours per day, offices require them to stay onsite for eight hours or longer despite the overall reduction in productivity. Displays of rank hierarchy are orchestrated to aggrandize managers over non-managers despite the inflicted harm to employees’ self-image and self worth. “Pay-for-performance” schemes undermine the sense of community between coworkers and create disfunctional relationships. And people are expected to work in such a dysfunctional environment and feel fulfilled by what they achieve.
It’s no secret that atypical workplaces that are democratic and compassionate are also the most productive. But managers prefer the sense of power they get from their mind-games, over actual profits for their shareholders. And as a result, employees who have not been successfully gaslighted by office culture are saying “I dont want a career and I hate working.“ Good on ‘em!

Saxo Grammaticus (c. 1160 – c. 1220) explaining the importance of understanding that all creative work is inherently derivative once you study the oral tradition of storytelling and history and that’s okay because generations have always reformatted tropes and themes to make them relatable to their current audiences

Me: *makes several good financial decisions, the combined effects of which will save nearly thirty dollars in my monthly budget*
Also me: *blows eighty bucks on absolute horseshit in order to reward myself for my newfound fiscal responsibility*
That about sums it up, yep.
A little old fan art I made of Princess Peach and Princess Daisy.
Peach is wearing a regal late victorian inspired dress and umbrella, while Daisy is wearing a fun and sporty edwardian inspired dress (perfect for playing tennis).
I love being asleep and I love being in bed but I hate GOING to bed because it requires so many small rituals and bedtime activities i wish i could just automatically transport myself into bed the moment i get sleepy already with my teeth brushed, in my pajamas, phone set down to charge, entire body marinating in an artisanal mix of 17 herbs and spices and sealed in a sous vide bag, etc
