Things I Like

I’ve already done 2 posts on my fears, so let’s see what I like!

  • Video Games: When I was younger I actually didn’t have video games. Not cuz I’m old, I’m not old, but because my parents just didn’t buy them. Then they bought us all Gameboy Advances and we just all got the newest Nintendo handheld for our birthday the year after they came out. Since my birthday is the latest in the year I always got it last. Actually, I’m the only one in my family with a 3DS as of now, so I guess I got my revenge. My first ever videongame was Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team for GameBoy. My first DS game (that I owned a DS for) was Imagine: Babysitter. My first 3DS game was Pokemon X
  • Pokemon: My mom absolutely hated Pokemon when we were younger. I didn’t know much about it, aside from my first video game and the books at the Elementary School. I did get a Gen 1 ultimate handbook for my birthday on year. I’ve been obsessed ever since. Recently beat Moon. It was easier than the older games, but super fun.
  • Books: Myfamily is big on reading. I never got taught to read, though. I just picked up a Dora book and read it, no problem. I love books and reading to this day, although I often find myself reading fanfiction when I run out of normal books (or when the book I was reading was totally boring). One thing I’d say doesn’t count as a fear but does make me uneasy is the thought that I may one day no longer like physical books. I hope that never happens.
  • Conspiracy Theories: Alright, go ahead and make fun of me, but I love conspiracy theories and predictions for TV and book series. I could go on and on about the meaning of life, Roswell, time travellers, and whether or not Ed, Edd and Eddy takes place in purgatory (it totally does).
  • Mysteries of any kind: I like reading and hearing about unsolved murders and heists, secrets of Gravity Falls, and anything mysterious in general. I really really like thos two-minute mystery books where the solution is written upside down so you can try to solve it yourself (too bad I can read upside down, hahaha). Mystery novels are some of my faves.
  • The supernatural: Yep, I’m the type that believes in ghosts and spirits. Both good and evil, both strong and weak. I may or may not be obsessed with ghost stories and the idea of communicating with the dead. I am also super paranoid, however, and I wouldn’t touch a Ouija Board if you payed me a million dollars. I hardcore believe in psychics and future telling. Not carnival stuff, but people who dream about future events. And Taro Cards. I believe in those. I’m also convinced that Phil Lester is a psychic and you can fight me on that one.
  • My Fandoms: I have a lot and I’ll make them their own post, but I love them.
  • Art: I like drawing, I like painting (tho I’m not good at it), I like clay, I like wire, I just like making stuff.
  • Electronics: Bro gave me a few circuitry kits that are super fun. One is the snap together kind and one is a wire kind where you can attach wires to springs to create projects. It’s super fun!
  • Numbers: Not crazy math and junk. Just number patterns. I have a book-related fixation on the number 13, I have my number patterns that I think I mentioned before?, I like how they (unlike words) always mean the same thing 2 is always 2. I just like them. I hate advanced math and how it beats them up. When I was younger, and ocassionally now, I would personify the numbers as I did my math. Advanced math always seemed kinda cruel as a result.
  • My friends: This includes my siblings. Being around them just makes me feel safe, despite my paranoia and many many many fears. I’m not a particularly vocal person unless I’m really comfortable, but my friends probably can’t tell cuz I’m always so comfortable when they’re around.
  • Cleaning: If you tell me to do it, I hate it. But if I get going because it looks messy, or just for the fun of it, I love it. The part I like least is the whole, “pick it up, find a place, put it down” part. I like dusting, vaccuuming, polishing, and the like. This stuff actually feels productive.
  • Hanging stuff on my walls: From photos to drawings to lights to movie tickets, if I can find a space and a nail or tack, odds are it’ll end up on my wall.
  • Sleep: It’s elusive, and an annoying fact of life, but once I fall asleep I don’t wanna wake up ’til at least the next afternoon.
  • Stuffed animals: Particularly my stuffed bear I’ve had since before I was born and my platypus from Scarborough Faire
  • having my hair done: Or even just messed with. I feel like a lot of people can relate to this. I feel no need to elaborate.
  • Colours: I love anything colourful. I really like my romantic pride flag (pan) cuz it’s so colourful. I like my sexuality pride flag (ace), but not as much. That one is more Lizzy’s style.
  • YouTube: One of my absolute favourite things. I love the people, the content, and most of all, the access to mysteries, conspiracies, and the supernatural. YouTube helps me get access to some of my other favourite things and some of the Youtubers have helped me through some stuff. When I was younger, even after getting video games, we didn’t have the internet. Again, because my parents wanted us to be readers and move around not sit at a computer all day (which is what I do now, haha). So, YouTube had been a thing for a bit when I finally found it. I thought of it as just a place to watch cat vids and maybe Fred. It wasn’t until my friend told me to look up minecraft that I really found YouTube. I didn’t reach the levels I’m at now until I found Chuggaaconroy and Jacksepticeye. Those two, along with Markiplier and Dan and Phil, helped me through the shittier years of school and my extreme paranoia when it first hit hard (Middle School, because all the worst things start in Middle School. If any of you humans are currently in Middle School, I promise it gets better). I plan to make YouTube my fulltime job, once I get my computer’s microphone fixed, becuase people always say to do what you love, because then you’ll never work a day in your life.
  • You Humans: This blog is small, I’ll admit that. It doesn’t have a huge following. And, I don’t mind because when people do like posts and comment and follow, I feel… I don’t even know how to describe it. I love (platonically, obvs) each and every person who read these posts, because the idea that people would take time out of their day, even time they were looking to waste, to read about me… It’s mindblowing. So, I guess you should know why I always call you “humans.” There are multiple resons. 1 is that no matter who you are and how you look, we’e all human (unless you aren’t in which case I don’t mean to exclude you) and we all deserve to be included and recognized. Race, Gender, Sex, Sexuality, none of that makes anyone unwelcome here. 2 is that I don’t wanna use pronouns. Or say things like “you guys.” I know what it’s like to be called something you aren’t, though not nearly to the extent of trans and nonbinary humans. One time my friend who didn’t know I was panromantic called my “bi curious” and I got really offended. Not because there is anything wrong with that! Just cuz that isn’t me. One time my dad was denying the existence of nonbinary people, and that hurt because that was also denying the existence of my romantic orientation, not to mention the genders of people I care about. By calling you “Humans” or “You” I am attempting to call you what you are, without trying to force you to be someone you aren’t (Therefore, if you aren’t human you should tell me so I know to switch to people. I didn’t use that from the start because it sounds almost like an attack “you people”. I ‘unno why)

That’s enough for now. Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Storytime(?): Interesting Head Shapes

Aloha humans! Today I was designing myself for YouTube. That sounds weird. I plan to animate myself for YouTube and I was working on how to do it. I then decided, after doing some Phineas and Ferb doodles, that I wanted my… avatar?… let’s go with that, I wanted my avatar to have an interesting head shape.

Phineas and Ferb, the main characters don’t really have circle heads. Phineas is a triangle, Ferb is a slightly curved rectangle (like a kid’s drawing of a tree trunk), and Candace’s head is shaped like a P.

That got me thinking about how most YouTube animators use a circle or oval, but do something to make it unique. Jaiden draws her hair, Domics’ looks like him, James’ draws his like his comics, SomethingelseYT adds horns, and TimTom is short. I wanted my thing to be an interesting shape.

So, I was playing around with shapes and I noticed how few shapes there really are. It was one of those weird moments where your brain does a double take. Like, when I color for a long time, it feels like there are less and less colors. Even though there are just as many as their were before, it breaks down in my head into red and blue, and sometimes green.

That was a tangent.

Anyway, I was having trouble coming up with different designs and I finally settled on a teardrop sorta shape. It isn’t very similair to my actual appearance, but I’m fine with that.

So, that was a long post to just say, my YouTube avatar has a teardrop shaped head. Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Drawing

Aloha! You guys may not know this, (not sure if I mentioned it) but I am an artist. By that, I mean I draw a lot and hope to one day make money that way (not that successful yet). Now, I may not be famous, but I’ve been drawing a while. I’m not that great, there are many better, Lyn is better, but often when people see my drawings they say things like:

  • “Will you draw me?”
  • “How are you so good at this?”
  • “I could never draw like that”
  • “Will you draw me something?”
  • “How did you learn to do that?”

So, I thought I could address some of things here.

  1. I will not draw you things unless you hire me to do so.
  2. I have been drawing since I was about 4 years old, my skill comes from experience, and taking art at school.
  3. Anyone can draw if they are willing to work at it. I wasn’t born good, and neither was anyone else. With time and effort, and maybe a good teacher, yu could draw better than I can.
  4. Don’t make the mistake I did. Don’t start out copying existing pictures off the internet. You can learn things this way, but your style will be more unique and consistent if you start out just drawing what you see in your own way.
  5. If you are really passionate about drawing and really want to be good at it, just draw. have fun! Doodle on class notes, draw people you know, draw from memory, draw from references but don’t copy the verbatim, and just remember to let yourself be creative. Art is about expressing yourself, and if your self expression looks less like this:https://i2.wp.com/www.mspaintadventures.com/storyfiles/hs2/scraps/roxyisthisyoU.gif

    that’s fine! Just practice and keep at it, and you will improve! (Credit to Homestuck for the images)

That’s all I got! Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Pictures File

Aloha humans! So yesterday I was going through the my pictures file on my computer and I decided it was too hilarious not to share. I expect this to be another long one, so bear with me. The captions are what they are called in my folder as well as credit to artists. (Now would probably be a good time to plug my deviantart and tumblr so nobody thinks I stole from myself)
