If ur feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares u directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand

How to draw folds
Notes on how to draw folds back when I was teaching manga classes back in 2006. From the book “Drawing people” by Barbara Bradley.
This book has a very detailed description of 6 types of commonly seen folds and I think is one of the most educational resource on how to draw folds(Besides Vilppu and Bridgeman).
also the whole “dad-with-a-shotgun-meeting-the-boyfriend” trope is actually so so not cute and only serves as an example of the creepy absolute ownership that most men think they have over their daughters
FINALLY SOMEONE ADDRESSES THIS
wait does anyone thinks that is cute?
What is Thanksgiving, according to my (French) students:
"It’s to celebrate witches. They eat chicken and potatoes because witches got burn at Salem, and it is now generally seen as a bad idea. The chickens represent the witches being burned, and the potatoes is the wood."
"On Thanksgiving Day, Americans sacrifice turkeys in the name of God and then chant at a table full of potatoes. It is very weird."
"Thanksgiving is about eating a lot. Every celebration is about eating a lot."
"On Thanksgiving Americans remember they have to be polite so they say thank you to everyone and exchange little gifts and little Thank You cards."
"They worship the Turkey Man. He is like Santa Claus but he is a big turkey, and gives potatoes to children."
"Pilgrims went to America and killed many people from America. They have to look like they feel bad about it so they invite people from their family they don’t like in their home and eat together at a table."
My buddy Tom baked a cake for his Argentinian friend to cheer her up after the world cup loss.
…They are no longer friends.

This is a jar full of major characters
Actually it is a jar full of chocolate covered raisins on top of a dirty TV tray. But pretend the raisins are interesting and well rounded fictional characters with significant roles in their stories.

Bohemian Rhapsody is no one’s favorite song, but also everyone’s favorite song. Like, when someone asks what your favorite song is you never say Bohemian Rhapsody but when it starts playing on the radio I am pretty sure you crank it up and belt out every single lyric and you don’t even care you’re so proud.
