Quick Confidence Potion

blacksandandglasscastles:

This potion functions as a glamour and a reinforcer. Drink it in the morning.

What You Need:

  • Black Tea (Breakfast tea is ideal) 
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg 
  • Brown sugar
  • Milk (optional, so optional, I don’t use it) 

What You Do:

Put your tea, a small pinch of nutmeg, a larger pinch of cinnamon into a cup and a spoonful of brown sugar into your cup. Steep the tea for one to two minutes (the time can be adjusted to taste). 

Once the tea has been removed stir stir 7 times in a clockwise direction, and focus on drawing confidence to yourself and the attributes of yourself that you have confidence in. Sit somewhere nice and enjoy!

Everyday Banishing Rituals

dog-rose:

  • Opening the windows in the morning. Shoo’ing away the bad vibes before you start the day, or alternatively, whenever you open windows.
  • Shaking out your duvet before before bed - I like to shake it a certain number of times for different types of banishing because I have my own number associations. You can also shake out rugs and matts.
  • Exfoliating. Enough said.
  • Sweeping is, of course, a very traditional banishing ritual, but hoovering could work too. (Ala Sabrina the teenage witch…)
  • Most cleaning could be used in a banishing way - but anything that involves scrubbing, acidic substances, bleaching, fragrances, or anything heavy duty is particularly apt.
  • Slamming doors. Impolite and loud, sure, but you could fashion a very small spell in which you literally slam the door on the thing you want to banish. Perhaps write it out on paper, screw it up in a ball, throw it out the door and slam it.
  • Perfume - particularly perfumes with traditionally banishing ingredients can be worn to keep bad shit at bay. (For example, oppoponax is becoming more common in perfume oils which is traditionally used to keep spirits out, but lemon, spices and anything smoky could count towards a variety of banishing purposes.)
  • Mouthwash or any mouth rinse could work as a banishing ritual, especially in times of poor health.
  • Shaking it out. It sounds silly but I often get aches in my knuckles and wrists, so I shakes my hands and arms to alleviate it and in doing so make a little banishing ritual of it, shaking out poor health with activity and movement.
  • Stretching is also another variation on the above - I feel it gets rid of kinks and festering hideouts for bad vibes physically.
  • Music. I have a playlist of threatening and sinister songs that I use to banish bad vibes or woo in times of need.

This website is like a suicide hotline but with text chat instead.  I would appreciate it if you guys helped spread the word.

I’ve used this before and the person I was chatting with was very kind and helpful. I really could have hurt myself seriously if I hadn’t seen a tumblr post about the site… Phone calls and I don’t do so well together

Florida 2016: *has third parties siphoning off 100k+ votes with a 100k point difference between Trump and Hillary.*

if you voted third party in florida i am ok with you getting hit by a bus at this point

dingdongyouarewrong:

i genuinely don’t believe there are trump supporters who are good people. if you knowingly support someone who, as president, would make life less safe for women, lgbt+ people, disabled people, people of colour and poor people, you’re not a good person.

Are so many people in America more scared of emails than a racist, homophobic, woman hating, sexual predator?

Apparently yes.

My thoughts exactly.

Yo, organize.

Please.

no offense but if you’re not american then stop making smug comments about how shitty america is… we know it’s shitty…. this election is shitty. everything’s shitty. focus on the shittiness of your own country

Yup, and it’s not going to be nearly so fucking funny to you when you see what a completely republican controlled US government in ALL THREE BRANCHES does to foreign policy.

You should be crying with us.

Disassociation is a trip, man. I’ve been with my girlfriend for eight years, we’ve been living together on and off for the entire time, but yesterday I was having a bad day and she was working late. After two hours of wondering where she was, I started thinking that I made her up and that I’d been living alone the whole time. So I had to look for evidence that she existed at all and my brain kept coming up with excuses like ‘no, you bought that’ ‘that second computer is yours, not hers,’ ‘you’re the one with the BB-8 obsession.’ And every time I was like ‘no that’s ridiculous’ my brain would counter with:


‘….is it?’

Like… I KNEW I was disassociating, which is the ridiculous part. And when she came it was over but like… seriously? Why are you like this, brain? Why do you do this to me?

I’ve had this happen sometimes too. o_o Dissociation is a special kind of very weird, uncertain hell.

Like… its better now that I know what it is and I can mostly talk myself through it, but for the past few days I’ve been too tired to take proper care of myself and yesterday interrupted the routine just enough to be a problem. And I keep thinking like… man… if this had happened when I was younger and didn’t know what kind of a fuck up my brain was having, I would be in trouble. 

holy shit, i’ve had that same thing happen and i didn’t know what caused it?? like one of my friend’s ran away from home after deleting all social media & that was like three years ago and none of my other mutual friends talk about him for whatever reason so i always end up convinced that he didn’t actually exist.

Welcome to the fucked-up problems a brain can have, friend-o. Object impermanence is one of those things that can mess you up, especially if you’re not having a good brain day. 

Yeah. It hits me when I’m too tired and too stressed, and when I’m not experiencing it I don’t always remember that I experience it, but when I do it’s like I can’t remember when I haven’t been dissociated and it’s like, is my entire life real? How did I even get here? Whose body is this and is time even passing or did I imagine that too?

But memories are weird things that encode based on what state you’re in at that moment, and they’re most accessible from that same state later. Reasonably this means that in a dangerous situation your fastest recall is going to be how you survived previous similar situations, which is great – but from a dissociative state you just get a lot memories of other dissociative times, which you can’t usually even bring to mind without a lot of work, and it’s the opposite of helpful.

Brains are delicate and strange and very, very confusing to have.

When I’m at work or in a public place and it happens, I can put myself on autopilot and sail through the rest of the day, but it is SO TIRING and by the time I get home I’ve made it worse just by all the energy i’ve spent from it. Like… yesterday, I had to prove to myself that I didn’t make her up and the only solution I could think of was to drive to her workplace and see what happened. That’s about when she came walking up the sidewalk and I was like…. ‘duh.’ 


But the good thing is knowing that I’m not the only person whose brain just fucking does this from time to time. So I mean… its not ‘normal,’ but I’m not alone.  

gifs are not witchcraft

itironman:

The other day I was showing my bff some of the stuff I made with ps and while he was very enthusiastic about it, he also said something that made me think:

“Is this hard to do though? I have no idea how photoshop works, so I don’t know if this takes a lot of time and skills or if it’s something that anyone could do in five minutes.

I snorted pretty hard at the “five minutes” part, cause I wish, but then it occurred to me that most people are probably like my best friend, and having no idea how we do what we do, take for granted our gifsets (which are indeed not made through witchcraft, though I’m convinced some of us must have sold their soul to the devil).

I’ll forever remember that one person that commented under a colour porn gifset of mine “wow, I didn’t remember this movie was so bright and colourful!”

… That’s cause it wasn’t. I made it that way. Everytime you see a gifset, someone made it that way. Bright, dark, very pink, very red (or in my case very cyan), very colourful.

And it’s not just a matter of choosing all the scenes to gif (and consequently capture all those screencaps, decide where to crop them, resize them and, only after that, beginning the adventure that is colouring).

There’s a huge difference in what a movie/video looks like before we get our hands on it and after, and I think that’s probably one of the things that people who don’t make gifs tend not to realize.

Let me show you!

This is a gif of a scene taken from Iron Man 2. The only thing I did was resize it to 500pixels. This is what the actual movie looks like:

this is the exact same scene after I coloured it and applied my sharpening settings:

Now what you may think is “you just made it bright!” 

It took me 12 layers of careful adjustments to just make it bright (which is not all that I did, btw) while trying not to bring out pixels (impossible with a scene as dark as this one) while at the same time trying my best to keep it under the 2mb limit (over which you can’t upload your gif on tumblr or it won’t move), and trying not to whitewash Rhodey as I lighten everything else. Let me tell you, none of this is particularly easy. It’s not impossible, but it’s not something you learn in five minutes.

Here’s another example:

actual movie:

colour porn:

Now the point of this post is that I’m hoping that people will see and understand that there’s a lot of work and effort on our part to make these gifs, so that everyone can appreciate them. And yet we see that effort easily dismissed every day when our works are stolen and reposted and people have no qualms about rebloging them anyway, cause after all they’re just pretty pictures made with a computer, what’s the fuss. 

It took me two years of almost daily practice to get where I’m at now (and I still have a lot to learn), and that kind of attitude hurts me as a person before it hurts me as a content maker.

Blocking reposters and spreading the word doesn’t help much if things like this keep happening and no one cares.

This website is mostly made of gifsets and graphics (that’s not to undermine the importance of art and fics, I’m just saying that you see more gifs and graphics and photos than those other kind of wonderful content) and it would be a dream come true to see a bit more respect and appreciation for our category

Leave nice tags under someone’s gifset you really really liked. Tell them how much you loved how they used that particular song/quote on that particular character. How happy you are they’re making gifs about your favourite ship.

Encourage content makers, you’ll be rewarded with more content.

Be kind. Do not take us for granted, please.
