ok realtalk tho when you all first started drawing ur animes did it start out like this

with everything down to the hands-behind-back-because-i-can’t-draw-hands to sugoi sparkly desu eyes that you’d spend 90% your time drawing and the other 10% bullshitting the rest of the body and the really weirdly parted hair with a huge chunk of the bangs right in the middle of the forehead and a V on the chest for cleavage 

bitch my drawings still look like this.

I realise this is shittiest thing to post on your Independence Day but now you can see why I would fail in an American school

This has seven hundred notes and it’s basically out of my control now but omg this is the Canadian grading scale

THIS is the American grading scale. As you can see, it is completely and utterly designed to make students feel like they are failures. If you think you’d do terribly in Canada, just try and deal with the grades in America. Personally, I’d be thrilled with the Canadian grading system.


i don’t know what schools you guys go to but where i’m from:
93-100=A
85-92=B
80-84=C
70-79=C
69 and below=D


You guys do realise the reason the grades are moved up is because the exams are easier?If they were harder the percentage required to get an A would go down. Examiners do this to ensure only the top 20% of students get As and this is to make sure only the best students get into university.To get an A in Scotland you need to get above 70% but that’s because our exams are more difficult than yours.Sorry for the rant but this post really irritates me.

"i wish i had a british accent"

ah yes, the british accentimage

the singular british accent

Hiberno-English isn’t a British accent, but otherwise YES THANKS.

THANK YOU. People do the same shit with the American accent, and we don’t have nearly as intense regional variation.

the phrase ‘british accent’ infuriates me so damn much like dude I live in britain I am british but my accent is lowland/edinburgh scottish. most of the accents mentioned here do not even come close to the accents used in fucking sherlock and doctor who.

stop saying british accent. please. the accents in sherlock and doctor who are not british accents because a singular ‘british accent’ does not exist.

A look into the experiences of bisexual women who happened to fall in love with men

Graphics by Chris Ritter

Reblogging this again because it’s so important.

I’ve had someone say to me that I’m ‘not really bi because I’ve never dated a woman’. As if they can tell me what my own sexuality is. As if my history in relationships determines my sexuality. 

Also been told I’m just saying I’m bi for attention because I’ve been with my boyfriend for two years. Honestly makes me sick and I’ve often told people I’m straight just to avoid the uncomfortableness and the judgement.

BUT THIS ISN’T NGE OR MADOKA

oh god why did I get involved in this fandom

I am in love with this song and this woman

when adverts and marketers use the phrase ‘new and imporved’ it really confuses me.

how can something be ‘new’ and ‘improved’? think about it…

I is Confused

Can someone please alert me as to when it became ok to use the word ‘queer’ to describe someone who isn’t cis/heterosexual? Because before I came on tumblr queer was one of the most derogatory terms I’ve heard people use to describe someone who is LGBT+.

The word literally means ‘odd’ and ‘out of place’, surely the word kind of goes against the fact that we don’t want the LGBT+ community to be considered odd and out of place?

Not to mention ‘queer’ was always used as an incredibly offensive and derogatory word, the reason ‘queer’ became associated with LGBT+ people is because people wanted to use it as an insult and that’s exactly what it was used for. If someone called me queer I can assure you it would only be used as a way to insult and dehumanise me.

So how come on tumblr it’s perfectly ok? I see the word being thrown about left right and centre and all I can think is ‘how the fuck are you guys ok with being known as this seriously offensive term?’ 

As I am bisexual I do feel very strongly about being called queer, it has happened before. So please enlighten me. How come queer is so offensive in the real world but on tumblr you guys seem to think it’s ok?

Maki says she’s bisexual but that’s just to cover up her fascist lesbian agenda

Glasgow Comicon :D

Decided to go as Medusa from Soul Eater for Comicon this year :D never actually been to Glasgow Comicon before nor have I ever actually made cosplay before so this is a first for me :3

If anyone has any tips for cosplaying and sewing and whatnot you are welcome to tell me, it’d be much appreciated :P

How to write a kickass essay with 1/2 the stress
A kickass ppt by wittacism

SLIDE 2:

Find out what your teacher wants

  • get the assignment prompt and break it down into its individual parts
  • this becomes your skeleton for your essay
  • spooky

SLIDE 3:

Don’t start with the introduction paragraph

  • seriously this is a great way of stumping yourself ten minutes into the writing process
  • you’re trying to write an intro for a paper that doesn’t exist yet???
  • start with the first body paragraph

SLIDE 4:

Your awesome body paragraphs

  • the cool thing about the essay is that you pretty much get to tell people what to think
  • don’t hold back
  • your name is already on the top of the page
  • so whatever you say
  • try to really mean it

SLIDE 5:

Conclusion paragraph

  • the conclusion is like the end of a 30 second commercial where they hold the product up at the end just in case you forgot you were watching a Hot Pockets commercial
  • hold up all your arguments for the audience one more time
  • just in case they forgot what they just read

SLIDE 6:

Introduction paragraph

  • now that you have some kickass body paragraphs and a conclusion, rewrite your conclusion in introduce your topic
  • notice how its 300x easier to introduce something AFTER you’ve written it
  • slap a badass thesis statement on the end of your intro

SLIDE 7:

Badass thesis statements

  • remember that skeleton we made in slide 2?
  • get it back out
  • make a single sentence that talks about all those points
  • it’s totally cool to write a sentence that says, “In this essay, I argue that…”
  • then just list those things
  • done

SLIDE 8:

Quotes

  • quotes are a great way to make yourself look credible and to add length to your paper
  • lets be honest, no one actually wants to write 2,000 words
  • you need to talk before and after a quote
  • tell people who you’re quoting
  • tell people why they should care

SLIDE 9:

Citations!

  • fun fact: Microsoft Word’s citation maker is literally the scum of the earth
  • never ever use it
  • use citationmachine.net instead
  • or make your own
  • (it takes about the same amount of time with a lil’ practice)

SLIDE 10:

Done

  • go get yourself a milkshake
  • because you have a rough draft, my friend
  • be proud of yourself

(Note: all text copied word-for-word, with errors intact.)
