You get better with age.

The whole thing about getting older and having more experience is that eventually you become better able to understand, handle, and accept things that would upset you greatly when you were younger. These things may not make you happy, but they at…

Public things of this nature aren’t really my cup of tea, but things have been said publicly about what I said, so I want to be clear. What I said in a conversation was assumed/misunderstood as what daleconradsshuttershades wrote about.

To clear up the misunderstanding, I attempted to make the point in a clearer, written form. Unfortunately, the misunderstanding has been posted as if it were something I said, and I think, because it’s public, that it’s only prudent to make clear I never said the individual in question was immature or should feel differently about the issue, nor did I say those were signs of immaturity.In fact, during the actual conversation, I specifically said the issue was understandable. I also said that the pain and upset of it could and should lessen over the course of many years. I think that’s a good fact, for reasons I’ve already outlined.

Everyone interprets things based on their own preconceived notions and makes their own assumptions, and people will read into things what they will. I can’t control what other people assume or think based upon things I say or write. I am sorry what I said was misunderstood in that manner. I can only explain what I said and meant and hope for the best.

It seems like two different conversations because it is/was. I can’t control the conversation you have with yourself. The only part of the conversation I have any control over is my part. The weird thing for me is seeing the point I was making recognized as being valid, and then being accused of saying/meaning something else because of what someone else thought in response. Again, I’m sorry anyone ever misunderstood the point I was making, but I can’t control that. That’s not the part of the conversation that involved me.

I’m also sorry to make this post at all! I certainly don’t like to say negative or problematic things about my friends in public like this. Only because things were publicly attributed to me that weren’t actually spoken by me do I think it necessary to post this. I am sorry I couldn’t clear the issue up! I tried my darnedest.

Hey tumblr, have you ever thought to yourself, “dang it’d sure be cool to set a project in something other than the current times,” but when you go to look up references on google, all you get is a horrible historical pastiche of days gone by?

Well boy howdy, do I have a reference for you!

The Wishbook Web has scans of entire consumer catalogs from past decades, ranging from the early 30s to the late 80s. Each catalog has pages upon pages of reference of clothing, accessories, and shoes for all ages, as well as toys, gadgets, and all sorts of junk that you might buy for yourself or your loved ones. While the website exclusively has Christmas catalogs, the photos and illustrations show products that you could use year-round.

omg yay

holy shit this is incredible

You get better with age.

The whole thing about getting older and having more experience is that eventually you become better able to understand, handle, and accept things that would upset you greatly when you were younger. These things may not make you happy, but they at least don’t completely derail every fiber of your being, causing extreme upset and anger.

That’s what growing up is. And that’s something to be happy about, damnit. :) We humans improve mentally with age, as our bodies deteriorate horribly into pale shadows of our youthful vigor! (Hyuk hyuk.)

The sentiment that you become able to handle past injustices better, that you dwell on these injustices less, and that their impact on your life is lessened as you get older isn’t transphobic. It’s a testament to the ability of human nature to grow and improve.

I apologize if I offended you because I stand by this idea as a whole. If you don’t get better at handling problems as you age, your life is destined to be pretty awful. Luckily, every human who has ever ceased to throw a temper tantrum when an ice cream cone falls on the floor has already demonstrated that their ability to handle problems has improved over time. And thus, I am reasonably certain, based on my experience and observation of others, that in five, ten years’ time, the things that hurt a giant amount right now will hurt less. This is part of life. One of the better parts, in fact.

Additionally, not every discussion in which people don’t agree is an argument. :) If all my friends agreed on everything, it’d mean I picked pretty poor friends indeed. It’s never good to surround yourself with people who think the same as you. The fact that this has been labeled an argument when it really isn’t is very troubling! But, troubling as I might find it, I am not upset. Because there’s no point in being upset at people you love. <3

sweetappletea replied to your post: “every time i see a post about hannibal shipping all i can think is…”:
I’m just curious if there’s Hannibal fans that have read the original books and saw the original movies that inspired the show

Actually I’ve never met one who didn’t seem…

I feel like, as someone who has read all the books and seen all the films (and still sees Edward Norton first in my head when I hear the name “Will Graham”), the fans of TV Hannibal aren’t lacking in respect for the source material, they just don’t really know a lot about it other than the general facts.

I like to think a number of them are going out there and at least watching some of the films, so that’s something! But I wish more people had read the books because there’s stuff that I’m wondering when/if it will turn up in the TV show, and I can’t talk about it with anyone for fear of spoiling them if it does happen.

I do love the TV show muchly. As I told my roommate, last night’s episode was “intrinsically perfect and beautiful.” Hannibal Lecter remains one of my favorite characters in existence!

Some more redesigns for the Repair her armor contest. This time the lingerie “armour” and the creative healer stereotype. These are all the redesigns I managed before the deadline.

Which one should I choose to finish properly and submit?

Now that the contest is over, I can finally show these WONDERFUL designs!

some half finished possible sailor adoptables. Still debating if that’s a thing that I want to do.

These are fricken adorable!
