  • I wish i wasnt so accident prone;; in the last week alone i have: burned myself at work, injured myself while bowling (again), fell down and grabbed a cupboard door to save me but instead ripped the cupboard door off, and walked into a wall while holding a square metal plate thing and stabbed myself with the corner. I am a hazard
    studio art classes are a different kind of draining....math homework and writing essays suck, and youd think "oh working on an art project will be such a fun break from normal classwork!" but its a whole different breed of stressful and tiring lol....

    I can't seem to put into words just how tiring art can be.

    It's important to differentiate drawing for fun and drawing for academia, I think. Remember Artist Unknown, the Spongebob episode? The whole thing was just the storyboard artists venting about how constraining and passionless art schools and art classes are and how they drain an artist's love for their craft. It's best to think of it as two completely different things related only by their medium. That's what helped me keep my love of writing through high school and college: thinking of essays as a completely foreign thing that just used similar methods to what I used when writing what I enjoyed.

    I dunno if that all makes sense, so forgive me, but I can say this much with confidence: you're gonna do great! :akasakiminato_lili:

    Sorry for taking so long to respond i have been busy :gackpo_lili:

    But thank you peaches, thats a valid point :) i have so much fun drawing on my own but when its getting graded and i compare myself to peers i really start to lose a lot of love for it. But its always important to not let my distaste for art classes come inbetween my love for art i do in my free time!!
    thank you all so much for the birthday wishes!!! i had a very fun weekend at joshua tree national park and i had a sakura miku birthday cake :)
    my best friend cancelled on my birthday plans and im very upset but trying to keep it together..... :tianyi_ani_lili:
    tired of flakey people sigh
    ive been getting a huge increase of comments lately that my skin has cleared up a lot and that it looks a lot better since before treatment. since i still have pretty severe scarring i feel really down about my progress but it's nice to hear from other people that it's actually doing better.

    after my last month of doxycycline is done ill share progress photos. probably cant end up going on accutane for complicated insurance reasons (heavy sigh) but the progress i made with the antibiotics is still really good.
    my skin hasn't looked this good since prepuberty, i'm so happy. it's still not "flawless" but sometimes when genetics do not play to your favour "flawless" skin just isn't achievable. it's the human truth and there's no shame in it!!! we can't all be airbrushed magazine cover photos

    I'm really happy your skin is clearing up!! I know it's been a huge source of insecurity for you. The scaring won't last, and there's stuff that can help fade it once everything stabilizes. But no matter what, you're a boss-ass bitch and a powerful, beautiful woman, so own that!

    i'm so happy too!! and yes, it's all downhill from now, don't worry! for the scaring, it just takes some time, the skin itself is lazy and take its own time to heal hehe, but it'll be worth the wait ^u^ keep going! :miku_sakura_lili:
    ive been having to use adobe illustrator for my graphic design homework, and it was not an easy process to get used to at first (i was crying my entire first 2 assignments lmao) but today i have been working on my homework and have yet to shed a single tear SO progress is going well
    The classes I'm taking this semester require a lot more work than I'm used to plus I have to scrape up as many hours at my job as I can cause i get paid no money lol so I might not be super duper active during the fall!!! but i will try cause i love yall

    Never be embarrassed about mistakes in a language class. You learn more by being wrong and correcting it that you do being right all the time. Also, no one cares if you get things wrong. It's better than sitting there being silent.

    At home try and describe aloud what you're doing and seeing. "This is a book." "I am using my computer." "I am writing on paper." "People walk through doors." "Airplanes fly in the sky." Stuff like that. If you don't know a word just substitute the English word, so you'll say sentences with a mix of Japanese and English words. Sometimes practicing the sentence structure is more important than knowing the vocabulary.

    The only way to really learn a language is to keep spouting nonsense until you figure it out. It's about training your brain to think in the other language as much as you can.

    Try involving yourself in japanese communities and watching shows and playing games in japanese:) That's how I, and all the people I know became fluent in english and most would tell you that the english classes they took at their schools didn't play a big role in that at all.

    Actually, iirc, I heard that my classmate would use this app, where you'd find a person who speaks in a language you wanna learn and they in return want to learn the language you speak and the two of you would communicate and tech each other?? Something like that, it sounds pretty helpful so if you wanna give it a shot I can perhaps ask around?

    edit: it's called hellotalk :)
