only real priority: feed the gecko who has been staring out of her hidey cave directly at me ever since I got in the room
I turned on the lights, got all cozy, looked over five minutes later and bam
little gecko staring me down
for 20 minutes straight now
I’m… basically my brain is vibrating madly between ‘let’s try to finish the pokedexxy for today,’ ‘let’s play pokemon,’ and ‘let’s sleep’ and i’m too stressed to actually make a decision
short lunch break and not enough time to get work done before… work so
warrior princess wardrobe ideas instead
- little tree cookies (like from 3-4in thick branches) with little woodburned engravings
- POUCHES pouches everywhere
- removable feather accents so I can still put things through the wash without ruining the feathers
- carry like… a rly gorgeous flask of water and like a little pouch of dried fruits and nuts to snack on
- leather/fur skirt w/ lightly textured (like bark or parchment) tights
- decorative masks worn as necklaces/accessories
I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.

turnoffthisentry asked: That Parasect drawing is so good and for some reason it reminded me of when I used to be able to draw I made up an alternate 3-stage evolutionary line for Paras where you trade it holding "fungicide" and it becomes what a Parasect should look like without neoteny and then a pre-evo that occurs when the Paras eggs aren't coated with spores and and and oh man memories. Parasect fanclub high-five hell yeah
first off THANKS it was fun to draw haha (today’s is gonna be so baller omg I’m so excited I made the sketch yesterday and I’m just… yes)
PARASECT IS SIMULTANEOUSLY SO SAD + SO BADASS I love it and those evos sound perfect?? what a great way to build on the original idea ayo
