    prime example of i am sleep👏deprived👏

    Percentage-wise, it is 100% easier not to do things than to do them. And so much fun not to do them! Especially when you are supposed to do them. In terms of, like, instant relief, cancelling plans is like heroin.  It is an amazing feeling. Such instant joy.

    Kids don’t like that. Kids always wanna do stuff. Kids get angry, they go, “Aw, we didn’t do anything ALL DAY.” You ever ask an adult what they did over the weekend and they say they didn’t do anything, their faces light up. Be like, “What’d you do this weekend?”

    “I, um, I did nothing. I did nothing at all! Did we do anything? No, I didn’t do anything.”

    People especially don’t wanna do their jobs. I’ve found that out recently too. I have a friend named Megan, she’s an elementary school teacher and I was out with her one night and she was drinking like a monster. And I said to her, “Don’t you have to do a shift at school tomorrow?” And she went, “Ahh, I’ll just show a video. And I was like, “That’s why teachers show videos?”

    I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:

    <>IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.

    1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.

    2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.

    3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”

    4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”

    5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.

    <>TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.

    Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, ei<>ther. Pass it on.

    Another realistic portrait! Ahh I’m quite happy with the way this one came out, it was heckin’ confusing trying to guess where light goes, but I’m surprised it turned out more cohesive than I expected. I’ve drawn Link a million times so you can see my progression through the years by clicking on the tag.

    (I felt like putting more effort into this piece than usual LOL)

    so i played GRIS this month and since i am still highly obsessed with SU with no sign of stopping, i imagined a mash between these two things. i interpreted the game like building yourself back up from sth awful, and the shape and color language reminded me of Steven Universe, so i wanted to think about that a little in art form. not to mention the game is gorgeous and i wanted to try my hand at using that style for SU fanart. the style evolved little by little as i kept drawing these :3

    I am reminded of a film about a young man who comes upon a rat in the streets of Paris. This rat is special; he has been gifted with a talent for the culinary arts. He transcends his station as vermin. Yet he is cursed to live a half life, his greatest talent confined to the kitchen in which he will never be welcome. Yet he strives to live; he conducts himself through the young man, concealed within the chef’s toque. The man becomes marionette to the rat - yet the rat himself is puppet to the whims of his own ability, unable to find significance in the simplicity of his species’ station. In the end, it is only the food which escapes the cruel influence of obligation. It is constituted not by what it must do, but only by what it has always been. Tell me, Will, are you the rat? The young man, controlled? Or are you, perhaps… the food?

    Friendly reminder that hating Pokemon Unite isn't just about ""no Sinnoh remakes or no let's Go Johto"".

    Fucking Tencent is the one making it.

    Tencent is known for spyware, punishes those who support the Hong Kong protests, are KNOWN to rip off larger companies or buy out larger companies if they're seen as competition, are extremely rampant with censorship of any kind, and were receiving personal information from Apple such as I.P Addresses, and the CEO is extremely honored by the communist party that supports Muslim concentration camps.

    This company is absolutely fucking garbage and it's pretty obvious from the comment section of the video that everyone who knows about Tencent is chiming in with them dipping the moment they announced it was made by them.

    And if that's not enough to stop you from wanting to play tencent has driven many players who actually did enjoy their games away due to the rampant cheating that occurs and isn't dealt with in their other online games. They're known to try and milk their gamers for money with pay to win deals and from the sounds of it ""free to start"" means you'll have to pay eventually no matter what and then continue to keep paying in order to succeed or advance in later levels due to the pay to win structure.

    For those who are excited about this there are LITERALLY so many other games on this oversaturated market that spent time on their back grounds, and textures, and design that dont make them look like a dollar store rip off game. Please look into literally anything else.

    Pokemon Unite is NOT the way to go

    I'm sure that people in the videos comments did a MUCH better job of explaining the dangers of tencent instead of me and theyre most likely a lot more well aware of the first hand experience with them. But please just take my word for it when I say that the ""unfair hate around this game because it's not a Sinnoh Remake"" is bullshit.

    There's hate for a reason

    I’ll admit I was skeptical of these points bc there are no links or resources to back em up, so I did a little research.

    So Tencent is a ridiculously large conglomerate holding company whose investments in video games ALONE pile up fast:

    (Outside of video games, Tencent also invests in “search engine[s], e-commerce, retail, real estate, software, virtual reality, ride-sharing, banking, financial services, fintech, consumer technology, computer technology, automobile, film production, movie ticketing, music production, space technology, natural resources, smartphones, big data, agriculture, medical services, cloud computing, social media, IT, advertising, streaming media, artificial intelligence, robotics, UAVs, food delivery, courier services, e-book, internet services, education, and renewable energy.” Needless to say, the company has a LOT of influence and power.)

    Regarding OP’s mention of the Hong Kong protests -- Tencent made a partnership with the NBA to secure rights to stream its U.S. games in China, but in October 2019, when Houston Rockets general manager Morey expressed support for the protesters in Hong Kong, “Tencent began sending out refunds to customers after cancelling the broadcast of NBA games" due to NBA executive manager Adam Silver’s support of Morey’s “freedom of political expression.” (x) 

    Regarding OP’s mention of censorship -- oh boy there’s a lot of info that proves their rampant censorship. Most notably, Tencent owns the social media app WeChat (which has “a billion active daily users”) and uses it to facilitate Chinese government surveillance and censorship. Millions of WeChat conversations were found to be relayed to police; people have been interrogated and arrested due to their private conversations. (There have been ”penalties against numerous WeChat users for mocking President Xi Jinping, criticizing judicial officials, commenting on massive floods, sharing information about human rights abuses, or expressing views related to their persecuted religion or ethnicity.”) Also, WeChat SIGNIFICANTLY distorts the news available to its users by using AI to find and delete select topics (including in 2018, the “deletions from some 4,000 public accounts...[of] major news stories like the U.S.-China trade dispute, the arrest in Canada of Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, the #MeToo movement and public health scandals”). (x)

    Regarding OP’s mention of ripping off other companies -- Tencent’s founder and chairman, Pony Ma, has famously said, “[To] copy is not evil.” There are plenty of allegations and remarks out there about his inclination toward copying.

    Regarding OP’s mention of Apple -- at least in iOS 13, Apple’s “Safari browser uses Tencent’s Safe Browsing system to help fight malicious webpages--but Tencent may log IP addresses in the process.” Apple’s also had many issues with surveillance and censorship in China. (x)

    Regarding OP’s mention of Tencent’s money-grabbing -- their popular technique of gaining revenue from games is to publish “free-to-play” games, such as Pokemon Unite, and then include in-game transactions so people will pay *after* having gotten into the swing of the game.

    TL;DR: Tencent is a despicable company whose hand in a Pokemon game should be a red flag. Don’t support this company.

    I didn't expect this post to blow up like it did, but that's probably a poor excuse for no links

    Thank you so much for taking the time to find sources 🥺🥺🥺

    I want mental health to be so normalised that little children can tell their parents if they’re feeling mentally ill just like they would if they had a stomach ache or a fever.

    I want mental health to be so normalised that school lets you go home after a panic attack episode like they do if you sustain an injury.

    I want mental health to be so normalised that when someone’s in recovery the people around them ask for progress reports and send get well soon cards just like they would for any other sort of recovery.

    I want mental health to be normalised because every mental health disorder is just as frightening, just as damaging as a life threatening injury and we pass people by every day who are so unwell in this sense but who don’t receive a fraction of the care they deserve just because mental health is unseen.
