I Have Nuthin to Say

iheartapostates:

Hi guys! I’ve got a little bit of summer break left, so I’m opening commissions for the next few weeks. c:

color bust (simple) 20 USD
color bust (detailed) 30 USD

How it works: send me your idea and any references you would like me to use via email to offmycloud@yahoo.com. I’ll send back a rough sketch for approval, to which you can request any revisions or suggestions you would like. Once you are happy with the rough, you can transfer the payment via paypal and I’ll begin work on your final (2400 x 3000). c: You can see my past commissions here.

My family is in a bit of a hard place at the moment (illness, moving, and school expenses), so signal boosts are HUGELY appreciated and would help us tremendously! Thank you for looking! <3

I'm writing a novel that's set in the 90s and I was born in the 90s but I was looking for more information, not just from my own personal experience of growing up during this time. Thank you! :)

First off, what’s your setting? For me, I lived both in the Philippines and American during the 1990s. In both countries, my family was considered to be middle class, and yet my life was completely different in the Philippines compared to America. In the Philippines, my family rented a two-story, two-bedroom house, had a tire store of sorts, and could afford a live-in yaya (nursemaid in English, I think?); however, we had no healthcare insurance and we depended a lot on relatives (while other relatives depended on us and lived with us, meaning bedrooms were always crammed). In America, even if everyone but my brother and I work, my family could only afford a tiny one-bedroom apartment (two parents in bed, brother and I on the bedroom floor, and two grandparents in the living room); however, healthcare is much better, and there is little ageism when it comes to applying for jobs. Also, racism was not as apparent in America than it was in the Philippines, mainly because America is more ethnically diverse (at least where I came from).

tl;dr, Setting is very important, and will affect almost everything in your story.

Secondly, you’re welcome to ask me about my experience of the ’90s~ It’d be best for you if you talk to multiple people (of different ages, too) about their experiences.

Now for links, which will be centered on American culture due to the lack of a specific region or location in the ask. tumblr blogs are in italics.

Blend Vegetables

Blend vegetables down so that you can mix them into other foods. For example, add some minced carrots into brownie mix or some chopped up lettuce into a chicken saute. Blend tomatoes and your choice of spices to create a fresh salsa for some tortilla chips.

Your brain is wired for survival, not happiness. That is why it keeps bringing up negative emotions, past mistakes and worries about the future. Because of this wiring, you can get stuck in repetitive cycles of self-criticism, worry and fear that interfere with your ability to enjoy the present moment.

During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.

CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
