I totally agree with Clara's secret: your smile is totally 100% brilliant~ And I'm sorry for not talking to you as much as during the summer, honestly. &Girl, I think you dress fly, no lie, and secretly I like how you answer your formspring and handle haters in general.
Ah if I only smiled more often. I almost feel like I didn’t talk to you much during the summer either. Could just be me. Times go by fast and I don’t remember much. I just feel like, I put more into it sometimes? Because I really do lose sleep talking to you guys because I think it’s worth it in the end.
Also, no, I don’t dress that well and I dress inappropriately. Dress nice when I’m at home doing jack and dress casually at places where I should dress nice. Regardless I’m usually worried about people judging me when I leave the house anywaysss sooo…
Also, it’s sometimes really difficult to handle haters and whatnot. The best part of stuff being on the internet is, is that I don’t need to answer someone right away. I can calculate how I want to answer someone and make it so I don’t sound like I’m over reacting or sound childish because I’m upset with what people tell me. But then again, I still do that sometimes sooo. :U But I’m glad you enjoy going through my Formspring. I swear they’re missing words and typos everywhere. Just like there might be one in here, but I’m not going to check ‘cause I’m lazeh.
I hate going to the hospital. Just like I hate taking medication. And this visit determines what my happen in the near future, job-wise, and it’s kinda stressing me out. Plus knowing I have a problem doesn’t help either and it’s probably making this worst.
How am I suppose to secretly tell you anything when you have anon off? smh. Well, not secretly, I like how easy you are to talk to. Secretly, I think you have a good fashion sense.
Haha, I actually didn’t even know it was off. Now it should be fixed. IF anyone else would like to say something. Haha, thanks. I think it’s easier between us because I really don’t have to hide anything from you. Except you know, the embarrassing parts of my life. LOL Just kidding. I can kinda tell you those too. And do you really think I have good fashion sense? I always kind of thought I didn’t. Haha.
But thanks, Diana. C: Sorry I’ve been sort of a grump when we talk. <3
When I first saw your art back on Tegaki for the first time I was BLOWN AWAY. And it -STILL- blows me away. You have amazing skills and it really shows because you're able to take a simple program like Tegaki and make art that most people can't even make in -photoshop- If one word were to describe your art it would be: elegant. Your poses/lines/colors always harmonize just right...just...hhnnggg lemme just stare at your art forever
<3 Thank you! I feel the same way about your art as you do mine. I really love your style, it’s nice and clean and I love your choice in colors. I wish I was as good as you using other programs, I’m so used to the way I do things in Tegaki, it’s hard for me to use anything else. I have to change my style a bit to compensate for not being able to get my coloring the same and it makes me sad, really. But seriously, I’m so glad you like my stuff ‘cause I think you’re awesome! I love seeing your updates on DA! <3
Hi, this is your friendly neighborhood library worker with an important PSA.
Libraries are not going to go under because of e-readers. Trust me on this one. Many libraries have already accepted the e-reader with open arms because yay! reading! (in any format) and have adopted and integrated technologies that work with e-readers. For example, the library system I work with has a mechanism which will allow you to download books of your choosing straight to your Kindle, Nook, computer, or other device. You keep the files for a certain amount of time before they ‘expire’. It’s actually kinda neat. The number of books you check out for e-readers also can go into library statistics, showing that the service the library provides is useful and so is the library! Yay!
What does hurt libraries:
-the oft-held idea that libraries are non-essential. This means that as counties struggle to balance their budgets, libraries (and parks) are generally the first things to get hit. If you’re concerned about your library, write your local government. Go to library board meetings and demand that libraries be kept in service. Donate older books and materials to organizations that work on behalf of your library. Volunteer at a library! All if you are able to, of course. -the lack of knowledge about what libraries really do. Many people think libraries are an old relic of the past. These are the same people who think we all use card catalogs still. Libraries provide more than just reference. We provide free entertainment in the form of movies, CDs, audiobooks, video games, and magazines*. We provide places to meet and gather. We provide programs for old and young alike. We help you build the skills you need. I learned Urdu through a language program the library has a grant for. I mean, really, the things the library can do for you now is amazing. *actual contents of your library may vary
Local governments are struggling throughout the US and libraries are getting hit hard. I understand that. So should you. It is not an e-reader that is the problem. It is the idea that libraries do not contribute anything to the quality of life, yet many people in America often look at the strength of libraries and schools as determining factors in where they want to live. We got e-readers on the radar. We know how to use them. We embrace using them. So can it with the e-readers are destroying libraries. Libraries are struggling just like any other institution. We just have to prove we’re worth hanging on to.
fucking thank you.
yep. love this.
Libraries are here to help get you what you need. A large part of librarianship is about customer service.
There’s the idea that libraries are basically all look like the Bodleian on the outside, and on the inside they’re filled with carrels and shelves of musty leather-bound books which are jealously guarded by vicious, hawk-like library assistants.
I currently volunteer at a library. You can eat and drink inside. You can be as noisy as you like in two-thirds of the building; there’s a silent study area at the back. You can take classes in sewing, jewellery making, interior design, French, and Chinese. It is also home to a skills training company where you can take free computer office skills lessons and take Life In The UK tests. It’s got large print books and audio books, CDs, sheet music, various periodicals, prospectuses for local colleges, newspapers in several languages, in addition to the latest books. And the staff really do care about what you think - they pin up the nice things customers write about them in the staff room.
