I shall either find a way or make one.
Mid twenties, laid back but well opinionated and slightly under-informed. I'm an artist, or so I've told myself. I love art, music, video games, Pokemon, Doctor Who, owls, traveling the world and all whole mess of other things. The list could go on, really. Moved to Chicago not too long ago, and I love it here. Feel free to learn more, if you feel so inclined! Curiosity is a virtue in my book. So is happiness.
This is one half of me. Here's the other:
This is where I drown your dash with everything amazing I find
Here's the amazing person that made this amazing background and was kind enough to let me use it!

We don’t give other people credit for the same interior complexity we take for granted in ourselves, the same capacity for holding contradictory feelings in balance, for complexly alloyed affections, for bottomless generosity of heart and petty, capricious malice. We can’t believe that anyone could be unkind to us and still be genuinely fond of us, although we do it all the time.
Years ago a friend of mine had a dream about a strange invention; a staircase you could descend deep underground, in which you heard recordings of all the things anyone had ever said about you, both good and bad. The catch was, you had to pass through all the worst things people had said before you could get to the highest compliments at the very bottom. There is no way I would ever make it more than two and a half steps down such a staircase, but I understand its terrible logic: if we want the rewards of being loved we have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known.

A sense of humor can make everything better. Sex isn’t like it is in the movies or in porn. There will be strange and weird and awkward sounds, there might be a silly interruption like the cat or a kid… you might knock heads or trip getting undressed. Sex is funny, foreplay is funny and sometimes you need to just laugh. It will keep things from getting awkward! If you take sex too seriously you aren’t truly enjoying it!
Not to mention a sense of humor can be really sexy no matter what your gender identity is!
this comic is literally my favorite thing on tumblr.
i’ve always said if you can’t laugh with the person you’re having sex with while you’re having sex with them you shouldn’t be having sex with them.
My husband once walked up behind me while i was sitting in the living room just watching t.v…and he put his penis on my shoulder and said “hello..”
THIS WAS HIS SEDUCTION.
THIS WAS HIS IDEA OF HOW TO GET ME INTO BED.
it worked, but not before I laughed for days.
For that last comment.
I always had a ton of weird funky condoms at my place because I volunteered with Planned Parenthood and did a lot of sex education and sex positive work. I literally had no less than like thirty different types of condoms at a time. So when it came time to grabbing a condom it was a grab bag of WHO KNOWS what you’ll end up with.
Long story short, my boyfriend grabs one, puts it on, heat of the moment type thing, a some point we both look down and see it’s an ELECTRIC GREEN condom. Dead pan he looks me straight in the eye and in his best impression goes “HEY HO. KERMIT DEE FROG HERE.” And I COMPLETELY LOST IT.
On a totally different occasion I said “don’t stop” and he sang ALL of Don’t Stop Believing. All of it. All of it. Right then and there. Without stopping.
Literally every time this is reblogged it’s yet another story added that could easily be about Robin and I’s sex life.

Wanted to share this helpful tool with anyone who needs it. A lot of people have a hard time putting their feelings into words and identifying what emotions they are feeling. This is called a feeling wheel. It can help you get to the core emotion you are experiencing and help you name each feeling when you’re overwhelmed with many emotions
this is so cool

- one bad test grade does not mean a failed class.
- an unhealthy meal does not make you unhealthy.
- one unkind remark does not make you a bad person.
- one cut, one binge, one purge, one fix does not mean being clean is hopeless.
- one mistake does not make you a failure.
- one million mistakes do not make you a failure.
Reblogging this because I need this.
I really needed to hear this
Good things to remember
How to get rid of your Art Block
this is a technique thing i learnt a long time ago from a magazine or something. basically draw a scribble and draw the first thing you see in the scribble! if it doesnt work the first time you can try a few times more but this technique might not be for everyone. still it doesnt hurt to try!

HAPPY N7 DAY!! I drew my friend’s ME3 MP character of choice—a Quarian Male Infiltrator, rockin’ the black widow and pimpin’ purple camo armor.
This took me a lot of effort to do, but I feel I really did it right. I hit a major wall with it, then revisited it a little later and messed around with a style innovation until I was finally satisfied with how it was looking. It’s my usual cel-shaded style with some paintover, which I’m pretty proud of!
I was also planning something more elaborate for the name/logo, but by the time I added that gradient background, elegant and minimalistic was obviously the way to go.
Super super happy with this..! Two more to go for my other co-op buddies, haha.
