I put in the good effort to make some bomb-ass original looking characters on SWG-EMU and I log on and this girl has got a boot-leg, half-baked, tacky version of my toon logged on right next to me.
*pullin my face*
idc though because she said the other day that she’s “not very creative.”
but someone should write something about the difference between “appreciating/paying homage” and “lack of respect for individuality” i don’t understand what’s going through ppl’s minds when they do stuff like that ??? i’m so confused ??? where is your mind ???
just saw a girl walking by outside and thought “ooo cute outfit” and then saw the rest of her and was like “but it would look so much cuter if she had a scarf around her head”
picking up a painting I really don’t want to work on and checking my email for reference photos I sent to myself. Not only did I find the photos but I found found photos of the half completed painting (that I emailed myself! D:) and I’m just impressed and nodding to myself like “thank you past self, that was really smart and helpful… “
like, seriously, i would not have thought of that right now.. now i can superimpose all these photos in photoshop and save myself some heartache. whew. go me!

Anonymous asked: I'm Filipino-American but not completely fluent in Tagalog. I mean, I can understand most of it when spoken and I have no problem with pronunciation but I just don't speak it. I've always wanted to be fluent in Tagalog but my mom just never taught me it. A lot of my Mexican friends who are fluent in Spanish make me feel really bad about it and they think I'm ashamed of it or they think that I think I'm "too good" for it or something. :( I really want to learn Tagalog though. Help?
I hear Rosetta Stone is good? :/ It’s expensive though, but your library might have language learning resources. Also, if you live somewhere with a Filipin@ community, you can volunteer and I’m sure Tagalog speakers there would be happy to help you out, at the very least by only speaking Tagalog to you. :)
I feel for you, I asked my mom to teach me Tagalog when I was in 2nd grade and she did it for all of about 10 minutes. So disappointed. I’ve always been a little jello of Hispanic families who’ve been able to retain their language and speak it together at home/at school with classmates. Not to mention all the random filipino parties that I’ve been dragged to and felt SO out of place at and had no idea what was going on.

No seriously, fuck Lily Allen, and fuck all these white people who can’t STAND it when we call out the racism in something. #SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen. That’s why y’all love Miley Cyrus, too.
CRT recognizes that racism is engrained in the fabric and system of the American society. The individual racist need not exist to note that institutional racism is pervasive in the dominant culture. This is the analytical lens that CRT uses in examining existing power structures. CRT identifies that these power structures are based on white privilege and white supremacy, which perpetuates the marginalization of people of color. CRT also rejects the traditions of liberalism and meritocracy. Legal discourse says that the law is neutral and colorblind, however, CRT challenges this legal “truth” by examining liberalism and meritocracy as a vehicle for self-interest, power, and privilege. CRT also recognizes that liberalism and meritocracy are often stories heard from those with wealth, power, and privilege. These stories paint a false picture of meritocracy; everyone who works hard can attain wealth, power, and privilege while ignoring the systemic inequalities that institutional racism provides.
I’m not going to unfollow you like he did, because I like the art you post and I believe representation of all types, including historical, is good for society, but CRT is complete bullshit.
The World’s Most Sarcastic Medieval Band just wrote a new smash hit, and they’re about to perform it for us LIVE!!!
Stay tuned for the B-side, “I only read books to look at the pictures” and the Superbass Dubstep Remix, “I want to continue to benefit from your work without acknowledging the institutional barriers you face that make it more difficult!”
omg u did not!!
