acutelatios:

xinsey:

i’m about to tell you the actual funniest thing i’ve ever heard.

i’m training to become a sign language interpreter, and today i asked my mentor about weird jobs she’s been on. like has there ever been one that when she left she was like “what the actual fuck just happened to me?” and i swear her soul transcended this plane of existence for a few minutes while she told me this story.

a few years back she and a colleague got an interpreting assignment from the agency that said “spice party”. so it was like a tupperware party where someone works for a company that sells a product, and they invite people into their home to show them the product and then the guests can place an order and buy the products and in this case it was spices.

they get there, and ring the doorbell. the host opens the door and tells them that the guests haven’t arrived yet but that they’re welcome to go into the other room to look at the products so they’ll know what will be discussed during the night.

so these two interpreters were like pfft spices?? lmao we don’t need to look this up, there’s salt pepper and chilli like how hard can it be. so they walk up to the door. open it. look into the room where this spice party is supposed to take place. and stop dead in their tracks.

flashback to when the interpreting agency got the order from the host of the party. apparently it said “it’s a party where they can order products from a company called something something spicy”. so this old little lady that handles the orders just thinks “hey, it says spicy, so that must mean spices right?” she rewords the order and sends it to the interpreters.

fun fact. that company did NOT sell spices. these two interpreters open the door expecting oregano or some shit and they get dildos. just. everywhere. dildos. lube. vibrators. condoms in 75 different sizes. it was a sex toy party.

the guests arrive. this is a small ass town. the interpreters know everybody at this party. throughout the night the guests can go into a private room with the host to place an order, and the interpreters have to come along because the host is the one who is deaf. to this day they see these people on the street and have to be like “hey :)” because it’s a small town, everyone knows everyone, and they have to say hi to people knowing that they have a two foot dildo and licorice flavoured lube at home.

anyway what i got from that story is that i picked the right profession.

Why Commenting On FanFiction Is Important

boothewriter:

Alright kids, Boo here with a hopefully non-arrogant PSA.

I’m a writer of FanFiction because I like it and it’s my preferred genre (also a great way to receive feedback on writing that I can use on originals, bref). But like with most artistic work posted online, I have very little feedback.

When I was in a slightly writing rut, I cranked one shots left and right, nothing out of the ordinary. But instead of people commenting with their thoughts and good feedback, they just gave me requests.

I don’t think I could ever put into words what that felt like, but I’ll try (the irony of being a writer). It suddenly felt tiring, being a writer, and very quickly I stopped writing altogether. I only ever showed my friend what I wrote and left it at that. I haven’t published anything for a while after. It felt like people were treating me like a mule wanting me to do work for them, and I just wasn’t up for that. I lost my will to write, and then I began to think, “If I post something else other than what was requested, will people even read it?”

Then you get the infamous comments, “You haven’t forgotten about my request right??? Here’s another.”

That just adds anxiety and guilt. I’m purposely ignoring the comments to save my own uncreative ass, at least that’s what it feels like.

After weeks of convincing myself that my stories are worth sharing no matter how many people read them, I started writing and publishing again while working on some longer pieces. Slowly it got better.

Now this week, I remembered I joined another fanfiction platform, and realized I had never published anything on it. I had an idea, and so I started writing. It didn’t come out as I imagined it would, but I was so proud? Like, I started feeling happy about what I created again. Like genuine happiness that I haven’t felt in months since my last published work.

A few hours later, I get this comment:

I cranked out three 3k stories after reading this.

In four days.

It never happened before, and I don’t know how many times it will happen again. It was one comment, but it gave me so much fighting spirit that I think I’m on my way to regaining my initial writer mindset.

Fanfiction writers depend on feedback as a validation that their stories matter to people. If you’re wondering why your favourite author hasn’t updated/posted in a while, ask yourself, “Did I do everything that would convince them to continue writing this?”

PLEASE ALSO ESPECIALLY DO THIS IF IT’S A DEAD, NEAR-DEAD, OR OTHERWISE NEARLY EMPTY SECTION.

I love my brother I love my brother I love my brother

I am SO glad I got out.

I am VERY glad I got out.

Mirage had to explain the water cycle to him because he read some bullshit conspiracy that water TAKES 20,000 YEARS TO GET TO US FROM SPACE. And also that you cannot get water from rocks by way of spontaneous generation.

And that chemtrails, as I told him, are bullshit. It’s frozen condensation, frozen contrails.

And that the government is TERRIBLE at keeping secrets. That was a good 15, 20 minute conversation.

And he explained the universe is a simulation theory.

And now they’re talking about the speed of light.

It hadn’t dawned on me how conversation-starved my brother is until now…

But I could be just like my brother.

Thankfully he hadn’t bought into Flat Earth. I could feel that side-eye through the phone.

Edit: They’re now on Xeno’s Paradox.

Edit2: That was an hour long call :’D

Artists of Tumblr, I need you!

aquariadise:

1.5 years ago I posted on Tumblr looking for an artist who could design a logo and header for @houseplantcentral​. I found the wonderful @laurenwilmshurst​ who ended up killin’ it with her awesome watercolors. 

Now that I’m starting another new website I’m hoping this can be done again

If you’re an artist who would be interested in doing a logo/header in a cute style (think unicorns, pineapples, flamingos) as well as some lettering, please send me an ask, chat message or even an email at aquariadise(a)gmail(dot)com!

I think all sorts of styles (digital, watercolor, abstract, anything!) would work for this, so don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss it. Show me your portfolio and be sure to include your prices if possible. 

If you’re not an artist please tag your favorite art person or just reblog to spread the word! I’d love to collaborate with someone in this community rather than a random person. 🌱

@beakmonster, I know you generally do critters, but thought you might find this interesting.

FYI he bankrupted the secret service

OH MY GOD THEY WENT BANKRUPT??? I KNEW THEY COULDN’T PAY THEIR EMPLOYEES OVERTIME BUT BANKRUPT?????

Okay so this is totally snoped. The secret service has never gone bankrupt and still has the ability to hire new employees.

However they are running into pay caps which could prevent individuals from being compensated for overtime in the near future. Apparently this happened once before during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The many sins of 2016 raise their ugly heads once more.

THANK YOU
