I'm from a country with nasty summers and can't stand seeing others suffering from extreme heat, so here goes nothing

42foxesontherun

some things might be centric to my country, but see the title. I'm Catherine and I want to help.

  1. stay hydrated. not going to say "drink water" because some people just don't like water. but drink something, please.
  2. air conditioning sounds good, until your electricity bills are up the roof. it's preferable to have an electric fan. R. sometimes does a thing where she puts an iced water bottle in front of the fan for extra refreshment.
  3. this one's a little impossible for me, but might be useful for you all: loose-fitting clothing. preferably light colored, and made of cotton or linen. polyester doesn't breathe and tight clothes keeps the heat close to the body.
  4. take two showers per day, or even more, if you need to.
  5. place a wet rag on your forehead.

if anyone can add more, please do.

i just splash some water on top of my head before i leave. no one outside cares your hair is wet trust me, but it prevents your head from sunstrokes. also it dries quickly. summer hats are cool too

I think I have some minors following me and just be careful on the internet guys. I made a lot of dumb internet mistakes as a teen and I have younger siblings that are approaching those years and it makes me worry for everyone who's around their ages.

It's easy to think you're mature for your age but just be a kid. Hold on to that for a while.

thoughts

just some tips from a veteran to ward off creeps, scammers, and other online hazards:

  1. don't doxx yourself. nobody needs to know your last name. or the names of friends, family members, your school, or workplace. those last two can ruin your life if you say or do the wrong thing.
  2. don't try to get into 18+ spaces. there's nothing mystical or badass about them. you can end up with a messed up or traumatic perception of things like sex, violence, drug use, etc. and if you get caught faking your age, it'll put you and others in legal trouble.
  3. don't take sexual photos, even if you don't send them. the laws around it are dodgy, and neither your phone nor the connection between 2 phones are totally safe. it's prime blackmail material and it's not worth it!
  4. don't post photos or videos of identifiable places where you live, especially if you go there often!
  5. your photos contain EXIF data. it's mostly harmless, but it can include personal and location data. there are apps that can scrub that information, but if that sounds like too much work, fiddle with your settings to see if you can turn those 2 things off.

The hashtag "Why Men Need A Break" is trending on Twitter, so I opened it and the entire thing is just. Men trying to raise awareness for mental health issues, and then women slagging men off.

Nice job folks, really evokes a spirit of understanding and equality.

Happy Men's Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Month.

babushka

give 👏🏻men 👏🏻a 👏🏻break (Thell this includes you)

men aren't supposed to pass out at work in order to be a "real man" who can "provide the status" for the family. men aren't supposed to be seen as weak for trying to get help for their mental health issues. men aren't supposed to be "able to handle everything since they're stronger anyway" and drink everything away. men aren't supposed to die from heart attacks earlier than women.

give men a break. you can call them out on their sexism when they're on break if you want to. just don't watch them overwork themselves to death in order to prove that thay're worth something.

Yo just a heads up, right now is when all the seasons will start to change and seasonal depression will start to effect you, especially when the sun starts to set earlier and darker colors are more popular and you'll be less likely to leave the house. It's ok to feel drained and emotionally/physically exhausted right now.

Keep your chin up, enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and find something to look forward to! Freshen up your space for the new season, re-arrange the furniture or buy an air freshener, it's easy to fall into a slump if you live in a dark cave!

i still wonder how on earth did we get from "its okay and necessary to experience negative emotions" to "if negative emotions are not your main driving force right now you are doing life wrong"

you have the right to be angry and sad, yes! but you also have the right to be happy!

Periodic reminder if you’re 18+ in the US to make sure you’re properly registered to vote and know when the little local elections in your area are.

If you’re outside the US and eligible to vote by your own county’s laws please make sure of the equivalent.

HELP!

lingoon

I’m in need of money for some food since I’ll only eat certain kinds than have anything available in the house, getting tired of thriving on cereal, sandwiches, and (sometimes) pizza n’ chips, and also want to feed my nephew who’s also especially picky as I am.

Like not to be That Guy who asks for things, especially if it’s something fixable, but I’d rather feel satisfied than go hungry to the point of irritation, anxiety, and getting sick.

I’m unemployed and probably plan living on disability in the future for personal reasons, despite being pressured to apply for a job. My dad’s using most of his money on a house for us he’s paying for to be built back in most of the family’s home country and grandpa. And even if he had the money, I don’t really wanna ask him for some because… terrible things have come to light, let’s just say (plus he gets tired from 12 hours on his job so he needs a lot of rest). Mom can’t work anymore due to her ataxia. My brother… Well, some of y’all know how siblings can be and I don’t wanna pester him to take me places and lend me money. He kinda scares me a little, too.

Not only that, but I also want to have some money for helping me move out of this hell hole, and to cover a few payments that I owe as well.

Sorry for not having a fancy commission sheet on me at the moment, nor having examples for certain types of commissions in the link below. Been having a slow art day as of lately. I’ll probably have one later. In the meantime, here are a few examples of what my art looks like (captions below!):

]]]]

(Sketchy chibi fanart of RevScarecrow playing My Summer Car. Mind the name in signature, that was my old Twitch username--)

]]]]

(Bust commission for one of my good friends, cryptid-anonymous on Tumblr, of his OC, Danny!)

]]]]

(Fullbody lineless art of my shapeshifter OC possibly for D&D, Maddox!)

]]]]

(Headshot painting of Julian from The Arcana for a trade with @99cmilk on Twitter!)

And here are the prices and examples for what I can draw for all y’alls. Also linked there is what I will and won’t draw tho I’ll toss a link to that in this post, too, just in case.

You can also donate/commission me on Ko-fi as well! I don’t have a sheet (along with prices) set up there either (again, sorry), so you can give or pay what you want.

Reblogging this also helps! Message me for email (and PayPal as well), otherwise the address should on my Ko-fi page. Thank you guys either way!! <3

the amount of mysogyny in Russia that kills women is ubearable and i just want to sleep

babushka

im sorry i'm talking about this here and not on russian platforms. which makes it kinda meaningless but im trying to not do things that make me pass out, you know.

petitions are being signed. people want to do a protests march but the government doesn't let them go where they'll be seen. bloggers are talking about this. almost exclusively women. well. media tries to switch focus to "well we need to punish women for defending themseves right?"

link to the petitions and stuff


babushka

i made one (1) itty bitty posting and i am feeling like passing out again so ill delete it in an hour or smth

I don't have a lot of followers for one, but the ones that do follow me do. It's okay if you think that nobody will see it but you can try, for everyone that sees this, is looking at this post, you made it so far, you woke up, went ahead and took a breather. You've come so far, what's to stop you from going further?

Honestly, just say:

"Fudge depression, I'm gonna take a step."

Wich is rough, but you did it.

And slowly but surely you'll get there! I believe in you!
