A few tips everybody should consider. I’ve experienced all those and some more. I’m not good at english but I hope you get it. Go and support some artists out there and let them draw you nice shit. Not as nice as FairyNekoDesu but still will be cool so give them a chance and you’ll be surprised.

THIIIIS.

All of these things.

Especially the deadline. If you don’t have a deadline thats way in advanced it’s not gonna get done by then. I am almost always taking on a ton of projects at once and sometimes need a break from it to: work on stuff for me, work on stuff for friends, search for jobs, be the work slave of parents, actually relax and try to relief stress, technical difficulties, researching on how to do stuff, ect.

Sometimes it’s done in a day. Sometimes it’s done literally a year later. But I always update the people I work with so they know I haven’t forgotten.

Do NOT rush your commissioner. Let them work at their pace and it will be worth it. Rushing them insures a rush job which will very likely make the quality decline.

All this is true. Also, ref sheets are the most important thing ever. I can’t stress that enough. They make the job A LOT easier (instead of having to compare 10 different pics between each other and see that everything fits, you just look at 1!!)  If you plan in commissioning your character a lot, or even if its not yours (like from an anime or something) Either commission one or look for ref sheets of the show (because there are!).

Also i strongly suggest not using Instant Messaging. Information can be lost pretty easily there and it’s hard to come back to it. Use emails instead. The info stays there, and it’s easy to search for it. It’s also an excellent way to keep track of the descriptions, so if either the client or artist made a mistake, you can see the email threads and see who’s right straight away.

also pushy clients LOVE instant messaging. Pls no.

This post is really nice! :D

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Why would you NOT reblog this?

Ah yes because us men don’t know this, we are mindless animals who must always be reminded so

Well with all the times you fuck up, we cant really take anymore chances.

I remember a guy comedian saying that he doesn’t even understand why women go on dates because statistically men are more dangerousness than bears for women.

Bolded: what several men have more or less said in full seriousness to me in an attempt to justify their disgusting views on sexual assault.
So. Yeah. Reminders are necessary.

a whole study asking the important questions

(transcription of the abstract)
Despite the popular belief that feminists dislike men, few studies have actually examined the empirical accuracy of this stereotype. The present study examined self-identified feminists’ and nonfeminists’ attitudes toward men. An ethnically diverse sample (N = 488) of college students responded to statements from the Ambivalence toward Men Inventory (AMI; Glick & Fiske, 1999). Contrary to popular beliefs, feminists reported lower levels of hostility toward men than did nonfeminists. The persistence of the myth of the man-hating feminist is explored.
*places hands on chin* Hmm, would you look at that.

i find it really sad that there has to be an empirical study “proving” that feminists do not, in fact, hate men
wonder how long it’ll like for mras and anti-feminists to start nitpicking at methodology or rant about how social sciences are a joke anyway

Why would this surprise people?
I mean, I get why people THINK it, but it’s not really thinking through what’s going on very clearly.  Like, they assume that feminists invented all the stuff men do to women or something, and non-feminists either don’t notice it, or like it, or it doesn’t happen to them.  But it still does, and I don’t think they like it any more than we do.  But if you don’t deconstruct it, it ends up festering as this resentment that men are giant jerks to you but you don’t know why and you can’t do anything about it and you can’t say anything about it.  It’s not like street harassment or assault or threats of rape only happen to feminists.  It’s not like sexist jokes or judgement of bodies only happen to feminists.  But I think talking about it and analyzing it helps a lot in seeing it as being a societal problem and a problem with how men are taught and raised and how society privileges them, rather than just feeling like your feelings are invalid and have no place and just building up this frustration at men.  Also, that you realize you can have spaces without this, that this is not the default way people HAVE to function, and you can have safe spaces, and spaces with men who are aware of their male privilege, and make friends with those men, rather than the “that’s just the way men are and we have to live with it *sigh*” attitude that a lot of the rest of society teaches us.

An Incest Survivor's College Expenses

lace-me-tighter:

My name is Gabrielle, and I am an incest and sex trafficking survivor. After battling eight years of sexual abuse between the ages of nine and seventeen and suffering two miscarriages of fetuses conceived from rape, I fled my father and my abusive household to attend Central Maine Community College. There I was conferred an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts with a 4.0GPA while working twenty hours per week in a federally approved work study program, primarily as a math and science tutor.

Miraculously, I was accepted to Smith College, a premier Women’s College in Massachusetts. Although I was generously offered a significant amount of financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, and student loans covering nearly all of my tuition, housing, and healthcare, other miscellaneous expenses such as textbooks ($500 per semester+), transportation to and from Smith ($200 per semester+), housing during recesses, and basic dorm amenities (laundry, housing dues, living and school supplies etc.) were not.

If I cannot scrape together the funds, I cannot attend. Without a car or a dependable place to live, I will be forced to consider returning to my abusive household.

As it is, I am bouncing between relatives for the summer and therefore cannot find steady work. I am using my measly reserve of earnings as well as SNAP benefits to feed myself; there is nothing extra. I cannot pay for treatment for my disfigured spine, a result of my abuse, nor can I pay for therapy for my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, much less afford mounting textbook costs. 

If you could please help a sister dig herself out of the wretched hole she came from, I would be eternally grateful. 

Thank you so much for reading and have a fabulous day.

wheeliewifee:

hey hey!

My husband’s new job is delayed (boss lady has been stranded somewhere in Central America?), as is the promised salary advance, and we are absolutely drowning after slow sales and too much time spent waiting.

If you know poverty, then you know how it goes: there was not enough money to cover the rent check- so it bounced, causing the phone/internet/utilities to pile up, triggering an avalanche of overdraft fees.
Our account is currently negative more than $400- even after two weeks of deposits.

Now this financial disaster is impacting everything: I’m out of several prescriptions, food is running incredibly low and I’m constantly going hungry, we need a new car battery asap, I can’t afford textbooks or mandatory online access codes. I couldn’t even scrounge up $10 cash to visit the school clinic today to address my current sinus/lung/kidney/bladder infection situation.

My father has refused to cosign a small student loan, and then changed his mind after agreeing to purchase my books. My sisters refused to pick up my meds or loan me cash to see the doctor. D’s doing odd jobs and running the shop and doing everything he can.

I know. I know this kind of thing seems to happen to us repeatedly, but that is exactly how the cycle of poverty works.

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
