I’ve did this one to cheer up my best friend last week *3*
When they say “it gets better” they mean it. College is completely different than high school. It is completely different than portrayed in movies. You WILL belong somewhere someday with people who genuinely care about you. If it means wearing a mask, keeping your head down, and bullshitting your way through those years, fine. Just don’t forget who you are and what you’re fighting to get through.
And for the love of god, buy a planner.
You are only as weak or as strong as you let yourself be. Don’t make rash decisions. You exist for a reason, even if you don’t know it yet. Never give up; never surrender.
When I’m really struggling, especially when my depression was bad, I’d get my favorite food and eat it very slowly. Savor every single bite. It might not make you happy, but it reminds you that there is good and that good will be there next time you eat that dish. Even if its just pizza. (Although sushi is perf for this.)
If you want to BE an artist, not just someone who can draw, you have to PROACTIVELY IMPROVE YOURSELF. You can’t just doodle or wait for someone to teach you. If you don’t know how to do something, if it doesn’t quite look right, if its not how you want it to look…GO LOOK IT UP. Everything is accessible online. The information is out there. All you have to do is go get it and practice until its the way it should look. Pick an artist you ADORE. Don’t stop practicing until you surpass their skill level. Then pick someone better.
Don’t make excuses. Just do the damn thing. If you sit there feeding your anxiety, you’ll never get better. Even if you throw yourself out there and have a panic attack part way through whatever it is, thats that much more of life you went out and took responsibility for. Next time, you’ll get farther.
Anxiety, depression, social disorders, etc. are disorders and medical disadvantages; they are NOT excuses. Even if it drains you, kick the worlds ass and make it known that you are stronger than the fucking laws of the physical universe.
Most importantly, look in the mirror every day and learn to love yourself. If that takes three tons of make up and a boob job, so be it. If it requires sweatshirts and chapped lips, whatever. The day you look in the mirror and realize that you are a fucking work of art that no one can defeat, you’ll be happy.
does this mean I’m having twin girls at some point
even on tumblr I’m the ugly friend
Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.
Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.
Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.
Chinchilla fun fact: If they feel threatened by you they will kick their fur at you. they give them selves little tiny bald spots that grows back quickly but you will be left witha face full of fur that never freaking comes off…. (i used to own 2)
