relationship protips (romantic, platonic, or otherwise)

If you’ve hurt, upset, angered, or betrayed the trust of someone you care about, do not make your apology about you.

that means avoid:

  • "I feel so shitty about what I’ve done"
  • "I don’t expect you to forgive me but"
  • "I hope we can still be friends"
  • "Please don’t hate me"
  • "I’m scared of losing you"
  • "I don’t want this come between us / ruin our relationship"
  • "I know you’re hurting but think about how guilty I feel"

Your guilt and negative feelings are understandable, but the person you wronged does not need to hear them right now. Intentional or not, when you tell this person all these things, you are trying to win forgiveness with pity and guilt. That is not true forgiveness.

Forgiveness has to be earned. It comes from reconciliation and closure and time. 

Prove that you fully understand what you did wrong and never do it again. That goes infinitely further than just saying how bad you feel. If you need to vent about your bad feelings find a third party to talk to about it. The person you hurt does not need to soothe your feelings when they’re still trying to cope with their own.

A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
You’re welcome.

I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.
It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.
Whoah science.
Neato.
Supercool.



Also, if you have a splinter, smack one of these things on there and it will draw it out of your skin. No more shitting around with pliers.

it will also suck the poison stuff out of mosquito bites and stop them from being itchy

woaaah i didnt know!! awesome stuff :D

Did not know the mosquito bite or splinter thing!  EGGS—IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN’T DO?

They cant fix the economy

Just the other day I was thinking I’d like to make a healer/medic character that has a pet chicken for this reason…

So long story short, I was among many of those employed by my office that was laid off today. I’m already being proactive about finding a new job, but in the meantime I still have rent, a car payment, gas, groceries, loans, and utilities to be paying.

It helps tremendously when anyone commissions me or buys something from my shop. Or even when they signal boost me in times of great need.

There’s hardly a thing I won’t draw or at least attempt to draw!

And if you’re kind enough to simply wish to donate, I’m willing to do at least a sketch request because I feel bad otherwise.

I appreciate all considerations from everyone!
