Robbie Kay ALS Ice Bucket challenge
"Robbie Kay, I think?" xD
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless
and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that." - Robin Williams (via rihahna)
Friendly reminder that Dia de Los Muertos is pretty much a funeral, and the dead being represented in the holiday are actual dead people who had families and friends and hopes and dreams. So just as you wouldn’t throw on black clothes and join a group of mourners because they look so fashionable in black, you shouldn’t paint your face and put marigolds in your hair and make altars because it looks cool to you. Thank.
OH MY GOD
this started out with me wanting to explore the ‘floating off the floor’ possession trope and well look where we are now
Alex Hirsch explains a lost episode from season one of gravity falls.
I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.
“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed).
Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.
But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.
I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.
And, that really scares me.
As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.
So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at email@example.com
If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.art, or Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.
Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.
Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.
I’ll share this before I close the blog because it makes me sad.
I’m currently recovering from acute tendonitis, which is a nightmare for an artist, but it is absolutely nothing compared to an eye-related problem like this; if you have the money to spare please consider helping or signal boost so that someone else can!
i miss the dtmg tag, not like its dead completely but i just started thinking about when the big artists were still here like conanners and prosonic and zamii and rorpie (props to polar for sticking around)
i miss the deadcanonforbilly blog
i miss when everyone was drawing billy high out of his fucking mind and when we were shitting on rajeev all the time
i miss when the most liked pictures only got a couple hundred notes, not because nobody cared, but because no-one had heard of the show
i miss when the big “ectofeature is/isnt incest” arguments were happening
i miss when lolo in love aired and suddenly everyone shipped lolo with spencer
i miss there being enough damn people to actually have a ship war, rather than two people just sort of disagreeing on something
i miss when we saw young billy and we all acted like it was goddamn miracle
i miss when the walk this way short got taken down and we all laughed because to be fair, it probably was “too gay for disney”
i miss when we first got that screenshot that said season 2 would happen, and when we all genuinely believed it would
i miss when two people found a relationship through the fandom, because it was so big and so diverse that you could expect a huge turnout at themed livstreams
i miss the 80s au, the naga au, the youngfame au, the reverse au, the teacher au, the zombie au, the crossovers, the facebook page, the deviantart group, the colours change fanfic, the askblogs
i miss when we all laughed about all headcanons being plausible because of the lack of continuity
i miss us
