that was the biggest fucking overreaction im laughing so hard
How do Red Pandas even survive in the wild?
The one next to him is all “Whoa, dude, calm the fuck down”.
Oh how I needed this. Laughing so hard. Omg.
I’m glad when my old friends get new friends because then they’re not lonely when I’m not there and they can be happy…… But it’s hard when I’ve got no new friends. Moving to new areas is hard D:
I feel the same!
Even when I get new peeps I will always love my old ones!

Everything you need to know about this donation fund is there in the link, but I’ll mention it here as well:
Basically I’ve been driven to the last and final resort of opening up a donation fund. I never ask for donations because I always rely on myself and find a way around whatever it is I need funds for. Unfortunately due to the time frame for moving I have, I definitely can not rely on the sales from my store alone. They are most definitely helping and I know they will be a great essential with the more new stuff I add to the store. However that will take time and I don’t have it at this given moment. I’m trying to move before the month is over to take advantage of the move in specials a few places I’m looking at in Philadelphia have for this month to save as much as possible. That and I would..very much like to spend the holidays with people who actually care about me. I don’t really do Christmas with my family at all much anymore since they exclude me now and have for the past few years. This is because of school expenses and so forth.
Speaking of which, I was solely just going to rely on the store sales and ask for help from my parents in regards to the apartment deposit and just getting there in general since I knew gathering enough funds through the store would be a slow process. However, my mom and I had a bit of a clash this morning about it. She expressed that they are literally down to hardly much at all thanks to these loans that keep coming in. Neither her or my father can spare much at all and she’s becoming very stressed. I can tell my father is too. This isn’t very good for their health at all for the ages they are. They’re in their late 70s. On top of loans they have bills and other expenses to take care of as well. It’s becoming too much and they need my help asap. The problem is that there isn’t much work for me around here. Not for my field or degree. That’s apparent because I went out of state for art college because there aren’t any colleges in this state for the type of art majors I was looking for. There aren’t even any good basic illustration jobs here. Alabama’s kinda…well lacking in jobs like this. I’m pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
I expressed to my mom that I need to get to an area that has more of an opportunity for what I can do. Somewhere that has some publishing companies or art universities where I can look into getting certified for teaching for now. You know, something like that. That and in the mean time, I could clear up my backlog so I can get back into actively accepting freelance/commission work in the next couple of months. With that and along with store sales and finding a part time job temporarily, I would at least be able to help them pay on some smaller bills or send money for essentials. Anything to help out some because the last thing I want to happen is for them to have health issues over all of this. My mom’s a huge worrier and is known to worry herself sick.
So I need your help. I set up a goal for $3000, but really if I can get to at least $2000 or something close that will at least get me set to go and I can just find a job when I get there to help with the rest. Any amount is very much appreciated. With all the followers I have, if a good chunk of you donated at least $1 or so, that would definitely help me reach my goal in no time.
I’m also offering limited commission slots to people who donate a very generous amount. I am basically filling the spots I’ve already cleared off my backlog thus far, so the spots are extremely limited. As much as I’d like to offer art to everyone who offers at least $20 or so, I definitely can’t do this at this time. So it’s only for those who offer over $50 to keep the amount down and I won’t stress over too much what I’m tacking on to my neverending to do list. This is a very extreme measure for me. Normally I’m very against it because of the workload I have, but I am very desperate at this point. Information on the terms for these slots, the deadline for them and what you’re eligible for based on what you offer is on the donation page.
If anyone is uncomfortable with using this way to donate, you’re welcome to donate directly to my paypal at email@example.com
Signal boosting is very much appreciated, whether you can donate or not!
Also don’t forget to check out my store, new things will be added this coming week, but some things have been restocked for the time being! Instead of closing this store on the 7th, I’ve decided to keep it open for the rest of the month to help with moving. All merch will be shipped on a weekly basis. (Every Friday! The first round of sales will be shipped tomorrow.)
Can I just…..?????
Like, this is the single most beautiful piece of animation ever, I mean
Go ahead, click and drag it, I fucking GUARANTEE that whatever frame it lands on will make you feel better about your day.
I imagine this could provide our neglected followers with some entertainment
dragging it is priceless
Obit of The Day: Nelson Mandela, Former South African President & Anti-Apartheid Leader, Dies At Age 95 Of Complications Related To A Recurring Lung Infection
Former South African President and anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela has died from complications related to a recurring lung infection. He was 95.
Mandela was elected South Africa’s first black president by a near two-thirds margin in 1994, after spending 27 years in prison for his role as a leader in South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement. He served as president for five years, until retiring in 1999.
For his part in ending apartheid, Mandela was awarded the US Presidential Medal of Freedom and the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, among many others.
Born in 1918 in a small South African village, Mandela eventually moved to Johannesburg, where in 1942 he joined in the African National Congress, co-founding the group’s Youth League in 1944. At the time Mandela was in law school at the University of Witwatersrand, though, in part because of his focus on politics, he failed his third year exams three times and wouldn’t practice law until 1953.
His role in the ANC continued to grow throughout the late 1940s and early 1950s, helping transform the group from one reliant on petitions to one that relied upon strikes, boycotts and other forms of civil disobedience. While working with the ANC, he met and recruited a social worker, Winnie Madikizela, whom he went on to marry in 1958.
Mandela supported peaceful forms of protest until 1961, when he co-founded the armed division of the ANC, the Umkhonto we Sizwe, or MK, which focused on guerrilla warfare and sabotage, based on Mandela’s newfound beliefs that such measures were necessary to end apartheid. That same year, Mandela organized a workers’ strike. In 1962, he was arrested for the strike and sentenced to five years in prison. In early 1964, Mandela and 10 other members of the ANC were sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty on four charges of sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government.
Mandela spent the next 18 years of his life in a prison on Robben Island, confined to a damp, 56-square foot concrete cell when he wasn’t forced to smash rocks into gravel or work in a lime quarry. For his first few years in prison, he was banned from reading any newspapers, and was allowed only one visitor and one letter every six months.
In 1982, after nearly two decades in Robben, Mandela and other ANC prisoners were transferred to the maximum security Pollsmoor Prison, where, striking up a friendship with the commanding officer, he was allowed a roof garden and and increased rate of correspondence: one letter a week. He underwent prostate surgery and contracted tuberculosis, while staying politically active as South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement battled President P.W. Botha. In 1985, offered a chance at early release, on the condition that he renounce armed struggle, Mandela declined.
At the end of the decade, in a new prison in the southwest where he was given a warder’s house and private cook, Mandela earned the law degree he had spent part of three decades studying for. Botha suffered a stroke, and was replaced by F. W. De Klerk, who, realizing that the apartheid system was unsustainable, freed all ANC prisoners except Mandela in 1989, and Mandela himself in February 1990.
Upon his release, Mandela traveled throughout Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas, meeting world leaders and giving addresses. The next year, he returned to South Africa, was elected president of the ANC, and entered into a cease fire with the ruling government.
Despite increasing personal strain involving his deteriorating marriage with Winnie, who was put on trial for kidnapping and and assault, and violence between ANC supporters and other political parties—much of it, he suspected, promoted by the state—Mandela pushed through negotiations for free and democratic elections with De Klerk. After three years of talks, spurred on by the Bisho massacre, the pair agreed to a new, interim constitution and free democratic elections.
Despite the best efforts of violent ethnic separatists, and over the fears of South Africa’s white media, the elections were held in April 1994. With 62 percent of the vote, the ANC—banned from the previous election—now controlled parliament and nearly enough votes to change the constitution.
Mandela remained in office for five years, creating the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to push for national reconciliation without alienating the wealthy white elite, increasing spending on aid and development programs in an attempt to bring parity to black and white communities. After his retirement in 1999—Mandela, aged 81, had never planned to run for a second term—he focused on charity and aid work, in particular HIV/AIDS activism.
Mandela had divorced Winnie in 1995, and in 1998 married Mozambican politican Graça Machel. He fathered six children, and is survived by his wife, Graca, and two of his children.
