Thank you Michael Grant for understanding

Guys can we get this to 1500? 

this man summed up everything i’ve been thinking for years

I used to go to a school where the principal purposely made sure we were assigned more homework than normal so that we would be “learning” instead of “on the streets acting like hooligans”. And they wonder why that entire city is known for their drug addicted rich kids.

DA2 Anders: Best. Trolling. EVER (SPOILERS) by arhaolin
Is otaku really an insult? I used it in conversation with one of my friends and he told me that it's an insult to call someone an otaku but they use it on animes a lot...

Otaku, in general, is basically saying your overly obsessed with something that you have no life but focusing on that one thing (Which is usually anime, video games and manga). People in Japan use Otaku as an insult. In animes, characters usually use Otakus as a negative insult toward others as well.

An example.
image
In Highschool of the Dead Takagi constantly refers to Hirano as an “Otaku”.

For some reason Americans seem to think of it as a positive thing, where if you were to refer to yourself as an Otaku in Japan you’d get rather odd looks or laughed at. Granted, over the recent years the term has been gaining more of a positive outlook and people are now calling themselves Otaku, though many outisde the anime/manga/gaming circle see it as a negative term.

Another Example

How Otakus are perceived in anime. (You could call them the bronys of Japan, I suppose that’d be the most similar kind of person to relate an Otaku to.)

A better example is to think of the word “Otaku” as “Nerd” or “dork” which again, like Otaku, used to be a very negative insult but nowadays some are proud to call themselves one. Though when someone refers to themselves as an Otaku many first thoughts is a person unable to relate to reality and their lives revolve around anime, basically a shut in who does nothing but watch anime and fantasizes about anime.

The term “Otaku” was popularized in the late 80’s - 90’s in America because an american magazine called Anime fans otakus. Not knowing the meaning behind it many started to call themselves this without knowing the proper meaning and now we have what we have today, people calling themselves Otakus.

While it was widely known as a negative term it really depends on how it is used. If you get called one, most likely they’re using it as an insult. Though if you call yourself one you’re most likely just saying you like anime etc. THOUGH, I highly suggest you do not call yourself one. Just call yourself a fan of anime.

I ACTUALL Y HAVE NO SYSTEM i just go with my gut ha hahaa. .. but I GUESS IN GENERAL Don’t be afraid to use saturated colors!! AS LONG AS YOU HAVE A BALANCE OF SATURATED AND DESATURATED COLOR YOU WON”T END UP BLINDING YOURSELF!

THIS IS JUST A GENERAL GUIDE cause whether a color looks saturated/ desaturated also depends on the colors around it!! and black and white can kinda go either way depending on things BUT USUALLY AS U MOVE TOWARDS THE GREYS = less saturated

SAT = SATURATED; DESAT= DESATURATED

 here’s a screenshot of my swatches where i sometimes save colors i like!

they’re mostly skin colors though SWEATS.. 

THERE”S ALSO THIS VIDEO THAT I WATCHED TODAY and I actually color in a rly similar way?? SO MAYBE IT MIGHT HELP
omg im not sure if i answered your question

Useful tips >.<

so this is what i ended up with for the “make your audience angry” assignment
i dont know about ya’ll but that phrase pisses me right the hell off

Side tip: if anyone ever grabs your hair like the above, clamp one hand HARD down on your scalp where the hair is coming out (think of how you try to immobilize your hair when brushing tangles out so it doesn’t hurt as bad, only do so at the scalp and not further down the hair). Then use your other hand to start hitting the other person (go for the face!) and blocking any blows they may try to make with their free hand. You can also step into them (which removes the tension on your hair) and start throwing your knees into their groin, stomach, kick the side of their knee, etc. 
The reason hair-pulling works is A) it HURTS and B) it’s an effective handle, especially because your instinct is going to be to pull away. But reduce the pain and the tension on the hair and you have more room to work with until the other person lets go, at which point you can run like hell or otherwise defend yourself as needed.

reblogged for the second comment. signal boost this, everyone should know about this.
