Happy birthday to my friend, linh-sama! I wanted to try an Okami-inspired watercolor rendition of Ryuko and Mako. I chose the worst paper to work on though. Whenever I laid down any color, it would just sit ON TOP of the paper in a water bubble READY TO BURST AT ANY PROVOCATION so I had to wait at least ten minutes for each layer to dry. It turned out okay in the end though! I killed time in between watching House of Cards. 8D

IM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICED THIS
I’ve been cheated my whole life.

I submitted a post titled “Paki” before, and just wanted to add on about one of my best moments in primary school.
So, I moved to England, from Malaysia, at ten years old, joining school in Year 5. And there was a white boy who was one of my “friends” but was always racist towards me, calling me…
At my old school (just transferred out 3 weeks ago), my friends and these people around me started saying all this shit. Eventually, my parents pulled me out because we were all getting stressed to the point of sickness and it was just really bad for all of us. =/ I was the only black girl in my…
I’m on Facebook, when I see some random video of old white people trying to rap. It was part of some “youth outreach program.” I thought, “This should be hilarious” I was so damn wrong. At first, I was all “look at how out of touch they are" but then, these personified Ritz boxes really said "Jesus Christ is my nigga." Like, really? Fucking really? In the song they claimed that they don’t cuss but they really called Jesus Christ their nigga? I was so damn done.
are you a boy? your clothes are boy clothes.
are you a girl? your clothes are girl clothes.
are you outside the binary of boy and girl? so are your clothes.
did someone just tell you your clothes don’t match your gender identity? they are a trashcan and their clothes are trashcan clothes.
So this past weekend I was at a house party and happened to see the single most miserably neglected fish I have ever seen in my life. The water had an opaque layer of something that looked kind of like grease on top and the single fish inside was listless and shrivelled. It smelled FOUL and the guy hosting the party said that they had noticed the fish being kind of stupid since they had changed the water last time (which must have been like a fucking year ago) by just running the tub into the tank.
Being full of whiskey and compassion(?), I naturally decided that the fish was now mine and reached into that disgusting cesspool with a ziplock bag, took the fish home, cackling to myself because what I was doing was just so weird.
The next day I went out and got a tank, like, I dropped 100$ for a stolen goldfish that cost 4.38$ at PetSmart. I went to a locally owned small pet shop called Paws N’ Jaws and the woman there was super helpful and even gave me some free plants with the tank. Ended up being up til like 2 in the morning with school the next day at 8 setting the stupid thing up, panicking about dechlorinating the water etc etc.
These are his new digs, live plants, snaily companions. He’s perked up A LOT since being moved to an environment that actually has oxygen in the water, and has shown marked improvement in his ability to eat. For the first day or so, his motor skills appeared to be completely fucked up and he had a hard time swimming and eating, he would suck up food and then just spit it right back out. Now he’s having a great time, eating well harassing the snails, trying to eat the plants and zipping around the tank for no apparent reason like a moron, but a happy moron. I really enjoy watching him.. or her.
Admittedly I might have done this even if I had been sober, but I like to think this is proof that not ALL decisions made when drunk are bad ones. I regret nothing.
You are a lovely human being. <3

It doesn’t matter if you’re pretty
or have things all over your face,
because what truly matters is
what’s inside you.
this is actually the most meaningful and thoughtful post i have ever seen on tumblr
