How long does it normally take for you (and others) to come up with skits? The idea and even where to film them?
Some skits take about 3 minutes to formulate the premise (or main idea) then we just make it up as we go. So in total I’d say the shortest ones are about 15-20 minutes in total (for example: The Care Bears skit). The CMVs are usually day projects.
Hi there. So I was wondering if you've ever had problems with this "Sophie" person on Tumblr? She harasses LGBT supporters on Tumblr and has recently been harassing a few of my trans friends. I'm just curious if she's been harassing other people too. She seems quite ignorant about all of this and is extremely rude. It bothers me a bit that she does this. I know there's not much we can do but maybe spread the word that she's back. She's been kicked off tumblr multiple times before.
I haven’t encountered her… that I can remember anyway XD
She sounds like a troll though. And the best thing to do about trolls is ignore them. Any response is troll bait.
ever since i enterd middle school my mom and dad have been making me get better at my math but I try telling them I what to be a writer when I am older and they just do not listen to me what should I do ?
Shoot for your writing goals, but don’t think that you can forego math. I’m horrible at math, I had to take it twice in University, believe me it’s a pain to ignore the subject because it’ll just come back and slap you in the face later.
We all have subjects we don’t like, but we have to work at them so that we can focus on the things we really do like in school. You don’t want to be dragged down by bad grades in an essential academic subject… it’s just not a cool place to be in school.
Hey Twin, okay..If you don't mind me asking. I have been watching old videos of FDP and my question is "What happened to the old members?" I hope you guys didn't fall out or anything..
Noopppeeee. But we’re all very bust people. First off, Kenshiro and kolibir had a baby… so yeah, major life-change there. Valdrein is in an intensive school program, Mavi is working full-time (6 days a week full-time) so understandly her free time is low. AG does a lot of helping out with the baby and has a full-time job. Lazlo is working full time. I work part-time and go to school and Nova works full time.
Needles to say we have a lot of other things to focus on and if can be hard to make the transit trip to get out to see each other.
It’s easier for Nova and I to do stuff together considering that we live together. We also don’t expect everyone to want to be involved in everything. Therefore we open up our project to our other friends as well and whoever has the time/wants to participate does participate.
I do miss the times when we were all able to hangout every weekend. But the fact is that now we’ve all got very busy lives and lots of personal responsibilities. We’ve all also expanded our social circles, so we hang out with more people. that doesn’t mean that we value each other any less as friends :)
I sent my last ask anon, about me being confused on whether or not I may be bisexual/pansexual. And even though it is anon its a touchy subject and I'm still embarrassed, so if you could, could you answer this and the last one privately.. I'm very sorry about the confidentiality. >//<
i wanted to know your thought on this. i like my best friend, we've known each for almost 4 years, and we get along really really well, we're like sisters, she knows I'm gay and all, and she knows i use to like her, i stopped liking her for like a year but for the past few months, i started liking her again. but i didn't tell her. I'm starting to like her even more, every time i see her, but the thing is she's straight.
Un-requited love is a hard thing, even when two people’s sexualities are the same. It’s nothing personal if she doesn’t return your feeling, and she may love you, just not in the sense that she’s interested in starting a sexual relationship.
If you trust her, which I get the sense that you do, I suggest having a mono-a-mono with her and just letting her know how you’ve been feeling. Who knows she may be having feeling of her own. And if not then at the very least you can chat about it.
The first semester at school I failed tons of classes so Lately i've been studying a lot and also trying to get my Sasuke and Naruto Costumes finished. I've also been spending time helping out a friend at her Gay Bullying club. My friends keep complaining to me so i was just wondering if there was a way i can do what i need to do work wise and also spend time with my friends?
If you’re behind in school you need to be strict with yourself. Hang out with friends only AFTER your schoolwork is done. It’s tough, but if you don’t catch up or get ahead then you’ll constantly be battling with schoolwork and believe me that’s no fun at all. It’s best to get yourself into a situation where you’re on top of it all. That means doing the work now instead of later. If you feel a lack of motivation go to a library or a secluded place and allow several hours of time for yourself to get all your work done. Take an occasional break, though. Gotta keep your brain fresh! XD
Also, if you take public transit, try to make a habit of reading course books/typing (or writing) essays while on transit. If you’re like me then you generally spend at least 2 hours in transit. When I started utilizing this time for schoolwork I found that my work got done much faster.
I know this will probably sound like an odd question, I am FTM and I have my first appointment at a gender clinic soon, and I was just wondering what kinda stuff did they ask you? I don't like not knowing what to expect so any information would be helpful :)
That depends on the therapist, really. My doctor told me straight up that she was going to conduct my assessment more like a “conversation”. So we just talked about my childhood, how exactly I was feeling, my current life, my girlfriend, my parents, my work,my school… essentially she just wanted to hear my articulate my feelings and she wanted to know that I had a employment that could support me through my transition. She also wanted to know that I had a support network. My parents didn’t support me, but I was earning my own money and I had a huge friend support network and a workplace support network.
Some therapist give you a questionnaire. And with other therapists it’s more like Q and A.
English is not my first language so I might write differently than what I'm thinking now. Anyhow, Don't mean to offense you in anyway! I was just wondering because of your post about the Liquor Store, do all your ID's still have a picture of your "female self", and your birth name? Or do some of them state that you are a MALE and your name's Lucas? If not, when are you going to have new pieces of ID? It must be painful when people are confused and mistake your gender because of your ID.
My ID is still female, I haven’t gotten around to changing it yet because of a few factors… I travel a lot, so I’m afraid of getting “stuck” with a pending name change while travelling and my parents do not accept my transition. Because my parents aren’t in a place where they are willing or able to refer to me as male I’m apprehensive about changing my legal name and gender. Especially when all of my taxes and some of my bills go to my Dad. I’m working on mending my relationship with my parents, so I’m nervous about pushing buttons, so to speak, at the moment. It is something I will eventually have to do though.
I know you moved all your amvs but where are all your convention footage? They were always my favorite and they have slowly disappeared and I keep looking but nothing! Where have they gone? Why did you put them down? What is happening...
They will be moved to Vimeo in due time. Remember, EVERYTHING with music (even in the background) has to be removed from Youtube as a precaution.
In fleeting moments I might wish I had so and so’s body, so and so’s hair, so and so’s GPA, so and so’s job, so and so’s daily routine… but it never sticks. I always think “well… if I’m so and so… then I’m not, me, and I like me.”
I never used to think this way… and fact for a long time I was pretty consumed by my wish to trade lives with others. Now I wouldn’t do it if you paid me.
Nope. I’ve never even tried nor do I ever intend to.
113-Something you’ve lied about.
I’m actually a pretty good liar, but I think that comes with the territory of essentially creating a persona and living through that false persona for a good chunk of your life XD I don’t lie often, but when I do it’s almost always to my parents. They don’t know that I went to England. But she found my Facebook status that read “In France” and asked about it. I told her it was an inside joke between a co-worker in I and proceeded to make up an entire false scenario on the spot. Passed with flying colours XD I’m a bad kid, I know, but my mother’s a nervous wreck… I couldn’t very well tell her that a convention was paying for Jenna and i to go to England and that we were going to stay with two people we’d met over the Internet. Her answer would be “IT’S A SCAM AND THEY’RE PROBABLY RAPISTS”
Hi Lucas! Happy Holidays and Magical Awesomeness to you and all your loved ones! I think one of the most significant operation(s) for FTM would be their chest operation. I was wondering if there are any places that help financially for things of this nature? Like a loan or if some places probably would have some kind of payment plans? I know many places would help people pay the costs of plastic surgery but I have no information about possible financial help with transitioning.
Thank you very much! :) Happy Holidays to you too ;)
Some medical systems (like MSP in Canada) will pay for it provided you fulfil certain requirements. There are also waiting lists involved that can be rather long (especially since MSP allows only one surgeon per province to do the MSP-funded surgery).
For many transguys it’s a matter of saving up. it may seem like a long way to go but many guys spend years saving for this surgery.
A loan is a possibility, but a bank must deemed you qualifiable for a loan as well. So things like credit will come into play if you apply for a loan.
There are medical loan companies, but beware of high interest rates. You also must qualify for these loans as well.
I asked for a loan from a friend for half the cost of my initial surgery, so that’s another possibility.
98 & 159~? Feeling sentimental :') Hope you had a good christmas!
98-The best and the worst childhood memories:
Tough one! Best is probably waking up in the summertime at about 9am and seeing the beautiful view outside the window of my old room. My friends were outside playing, and I was just so thrilled and excited to start the day :) Worst is probably having a neighbour (who we later found out was bi-polar) freak out on me when I was very young. She called me a “terror to the neighbourhood” because supposably I had said the f-word in front of her son. Of course I didn’t even know what the f-word was so that wasn’t true, but she flipped her shit. Right in front of her daughter too. Then she drove away after me (almost running me down) yelling “That’s right! Go home and cry to your MOM” as I ran home sobbing. I wasn’t so much upset as I was scared shitless.
159-If you have a boyfriend/girlfriend, what is your favorite thing about him/her?
It’s hard to choose one thing. i love everything about her :) But if I had to choose something that stood out…Her smile. It melts my heart each and every time :)
Lucas, your strength is inspiring. I'll be sending you some good vibes to give you a little extra strength to get you through the holiday season and deal with any family upsets. Merry Christmas. (Also- you look very cute in that sweater. Nova is one lucky lady.)
Thank you very much :)
I made it through! It wasn’t too bad, just rather awkward. My family got to meet Nova for the first time ever though, and that went well ;)
Merry Christmas! I hope you had a great holiday. Ah, I also wanted to ask; have you ever thought about coming to Calgary, for our yearly anime convention?
Merry Christmas! 8D
I have definitely considered it, unfortunately is is actually a moderately costly trip for us :( We’d either have to be invited or we’d have to substitute an Alberta con for another of our regular cons.
in complete honesty there are so many things I'd like to ask you, in fact I wish I knew you in person! hehe but for now I guess I seem more found to hear your answers to these... 63, 66 & 68. well, that is if you don't mind ^o^ (happy christmas btw! hope you and nova are enjoying yourselves!) <3
Merry Christmas to you too! =D I like your icon ;)
63-A quote you try to live by:
"Everything will always work out for the best" and "Play through the pain"
66-Something you do without realising:
Press my finger or my knuckle to my lips when in a conversation or concentrating.
68-Someone you’d like to be for a day and why:
I’d like to be my cat, Panther. I figure it must be fantastic to lie around all day being fat XD
