Image by Pixelkitties based both a video game and a certain con disaster but replace Las Vegas with Columbia and you kind of get an idea what I feel may go down soon.
What makes me say that? Okay here’s as quick a rundown as I can manage:
-Father is still jobless. Applying left and right, but, y’know, market. He’s scared.
-Brother…is unresponsive and not interacting with us. Basically he’s treating this like free room and board and not…y’know, living with a family. He doesn’t even eat with us. Hell, we made COOKIES last weekend, he didn’t even come out for COOKIES. From what he can tell he’s mostly eating fast food. When he is eating. It gets really hard to tell.
He basically seems to be self-destructing from stress but he’s not seeking help from us or anyone else as far as we can tell and just shutting himself in until it’s like there’s a stranger in the house.
A stranger not paying room and board.
-My parents are fucking sick of Missouri and Missouri weather and honestly escaping and starting over in Florida is looking more and more like a good option. Hell, Florida isn’t even as expensive as California was, we can probably get a nice house with the money from selling this house.
-If they leave, it may be the best time for me to jump ship and break off on my own, too. I will probably be going the exact opposite direction than my parents, to the Northwest, I am looking at a school in Portland, OR that apparently has a good rep and places in Vancouver.
Of course, as itching I am to finally get out on my own and have my real life begin and all that, I am also terrified, as one typically is. I’d have to start jamming on a portfolio to send schools and start applying for every scholarship I can possibly get money from. (Which considering I am biologically a female POC, is a good number of scholarships.)
I would have to miss my last semester at MACC, but I hope I’d get my spring semester in, because at least then I’ll have portfolio material from my drawing and comp class. And maybe see if I can get to the life drawing sessions MU has Saturday mornings so I can get that stuff in. Because there’s no way they’re getting nude models in the building MACC is in. XD;
So right now basically feels like limbo (not the game, just the general feeling of being in Limbo) and it looks like I may have to make an epic Escape: Columbia, Missouri.
If shit gets real and I put up a donation link, I do really hope you all understand.
an alternate universe
where laserblast became a massive franchise with two sequels, three prequels, a ridiculous amount of merchandise and memes, a couple of cartoons, and eventually getting bought out by Disney so that it could get even more sequels
whilst star wars was a complete failure known only to those who watch mst3k.
Wherein someone blows up a sign labelled “Laserblast”
Reminding one of the movie “Laserblast.”
Okay first: GO TO BED OLD MAN
Second: I WAS TAUGHT CURSIVE IN SECOND GRADE. I can read it (within reason, I’ll get into that.) I can still write it, it may just take me a bit because I’m out of practice and it seems the part of my brain that controls my drawing and has learned to compensate for my hand tremors is apparently a different part of my brain than I use for writing so it’s a bit behind on making up for my shaky hands.
Third: Honestly? I can read people’s sloppy print easier than I can sloppy cursive. Sloppy cursive, especially y’know, like doctor’s writing, just tends to devolve into a lot of loops with maybe some dots and dashes and maybe some distinct first or capital letters.
Like I can’t read the comment on top of my Psychology paper (IT SAYS “INTERESTING ____,” BUT I GOT AN A, SO I GUESS THAT’S ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW) but most of the time I can read little kid’s sloppy print.
And really there’s a reason comics are written in an all caps print font. It’s generally easier to read even if small or whatever. And yes, I break that rule often, but uh, I regret nothing.
"I enjoy that villain as a character, but their charm doesn’t excuse their actions and neither does their tragic backstory."
"Poor misunderstood baby!"
WHY DOES TUMBLR EVEN DO THAT, ANYWAY?
What is this? Some kind of deamon or devil? Nope its Krampus, the guy who brings gifts to german children.
He used to acompany St.Nicolas like Knecht Ruprecht and had to punish children who missbehaved but he didnt like this job, he didnt wnat to hurt children he wanted to bring gifts himself. So he left St.Nicolas and now brings gifts to children in some parts of Germany and Austria, reminding us that just because you look evil you dont have to be evil. :)
A chocolate Krampus:
Happy Krampus playing with a Child, and an a bit scared Child
People dressing up as Krampus:
BTW. Santa Claus visits german children on the 6th of decemer to bring them small gifts, mostly sweets.
The guy who brings the gifts on christmas is called, and i shit you not, CHRISTMAS MAN
The best superhero name ever
thank you Germany :,-)
Just because that last pic reminded me
I like this far more than I should a crappy Kate Beaton pastiche.
Doodles from the other day. Yes, I liked those movies.
#reblog it for l debarge
CARDBOARD CUTOUT STEVE GUTTENBURG IS BEST STEVE GUTTENBURG.
Wheatley STOP MIXING INTO MY OTHER FANDOMS
we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise
Tia Baheri: “Your Ability to Can Even: A Defense of Internet Linguistics" | The Toast
Totally worth reading the whole article, especially the part on Tumblr and gender.
Internet linguistics is super fascinating to me.
This whole article is absolutely fascinating. As someone who is older than the average tumblr user, and someone who can be a bit of a grammar freak, it took me a long time to get used to the Tumblrisms, but now I find them incredibly useful.
ugh can I just go back in time to go to a doctor who convention in the 80s please
THIS PICTURE MAKES ME SO HAPPY I JUST CANT OKAY THIS IS THE CUTEST
"This is my first convention with Patrick, at Chicago in 1984. You can tell how much I loved Pat, much to the amusement of Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison and Colin Baker. They later commented that their male companions didn’t hug them like that!"
They had such a lovely friendship ;w;
REBLOGGING FOR THAT CUTE QUOTE UGH. FRAZER!!RR!!
hahaha this reminds me of the MTL panel. Frazer talked about Five Doctors and how Jon was frustrated because his companions didn’t hug him, or something? I can’t find the panel on youtube, and I’m not sure if I’m right or not. But I remember hearing that anyway :P
The panel is here :) But yeah Frazer said that the other Doctors so Jon and Peter? were jealous of Patrick’s relationship with him and Wendy eheh :3 too cute!
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOSH CUTIES FOR LIFE
