I’m one of those students that is too shy to ask for help on an assignment so I just procrastinate until the night before and then have a mental breakdown until I eventually figure out how to do it.

That means free access to Photoshop CS2 - and that already has most of what you could ask for, really.

All you have to do is create a FREE ADOBE ID.

I am not sure about commercial use, but MAN. FUCKIN’ SWEET DUDE

Reblogging for the greater good.

I’m unlikely to pick it up as I honestly never use PS anymore, but here everyone who follows me. Free stuff.

oh wow this is perfect i was just lamenting that i’d have to buy creative suite for my new laptop WELP

Signal boost for any of my followers who need art programs!

The cs2 programs date back only a few years, and still have much of the functionality of today’s more modern ones. The differences between most of the versions are little more than slight modifications or additions of minor features, and UI changes. Go for it guys!!

Also, in case the page is down, here are the download links + serials.

Signal boost for you too, I downloaded it and use Photoshop CS2 to draw now c: enjoy, this is legit!

so being a pedophile is the new wave?

Report these nasty broads, yo.

Shit like this normalizes pedophilia. Report all of them. 

Everyone would be losing their god damned minds if the roles were reversed for god’s sake this is not ‘cute.’

No… Just no.

I have finally hit my breaking point. For as long as I can remember I have endured my mother’s abuse, whether it is verbal, emotional, or as seen here physical. I can expect some act of violence on a daily basis, and her beating me is not an usual occurrence, but today something snapped. My mother did this unprovoked, and this time she didn’t stop. Usually it’s bad for a little while and then she’s done, today it went on for what seemed like forever. At a certain point I decided I was going to do something I never do, call the police. You see, my mother is a highly respected and very well known person where I live. She is on the board of ed, worked for CPS for many years, and is close personal friends with people like the local chief of police, director of our local CPS unit, and so on. I always knew that calling wouldn’t go anywhere and just upset her more, but today I had to try. While she was kicking me I found my opportunity, and somehow managed to get away from someone more than twice my size. I ran as fast as I could, knocking things over behind my, trying to find a phone. I dialed and they listened and my mother proceeding to beat me over it, while I screamed for help. For the second time today, I managed to get away from her and ran to my room. I barely had enough time to lock my door, before she starting trying to get it, to the point that she ripped my door off the frame. I decided I was going to stay locked in there, until the police came. The past few months I have been collecting evidence against her, voice recordings, pictures like these, and videos of her violence, so they couldn’t dispute what was going on. But I was dead wrong. 

When the officer finally came up to my room, I attempted to tell him my side of the story, but before I could get a sentence out he silenced me. HE told me that this was my mothers house, and I needed to live by her rules. If I didn’t she had the right to punish me. He also told me to be tankful for her, because he wanted to press assault charges against me. finally, he refused, despite my begging, for him to take me to a shelter for teens. 

I am utterly disgusted by the injustice that occurred today. I pray there is no one else out there who is living in such a situation. I am not sure exactly what I am getting out of writing this, except maybe that it’s just nice to be able to open up about this, when I have had to keep it a secret my whole life. idk. sorry for posting such heavy shit. 

Signal boost the fuck out of this

Bring awareness, and if you can, call OP’s local PD, PUT PRESSURE ON THEM TO TAKE ACTION.

Hello, I’m Angela and my url is ^^

Just a year ago, I wouldn’t have been bothered if  someone were to refer to me as “exotic.” In fact, I would have been flattered. I thought that it meant that I was somehow special or different. My mother felt the same way. Actually, she still feels that way. She was the one who had initially convinced me of the idea after all.

I’m Filipina. Filipina women, to them, are supposed to be this extra exotic breed… Not only are we Asian but we’re also tan, have big eyes (don’t worry they’re still nice and almond-shaped!), and often have Spanish surnames. How cool! How unique! How exotic! Yeah, the Philippines was conquered by the Spanish for a while, so that kinda makes them like Mexicans right? Yeah, like the Mexicans of Asia! (I can’t believe I didn’t speak out against such bullshit…)

Little did I know that these people (mostly white men…) who “preferred” Filipina girls for their “exoticness” were actually gross fetishizers. The idea of appearing somehow different and mysterious to these dudes at first seemed appealing. But then you realize that those people don’t really see you for you…

They see how different you are from them. They see all the stereotypes that you are supposedly comprised of instead of your actual personality. They see the woman in that super freaky foreign porn that they watched just a few days ago. Their perspective of you is severely warped by a thick veil covering their eyes, and that veil is called fetishization.

And the very sad part is that a good amount of Filipin@s, woman and men and everyone in between, are proud of being seen this way! Filipin@ pride is a great thing. I’m very proud of being Filipina! But being thought of as this bizarre and unusual item from a faraway land should not be something we’re proud of. This should not be included in the celebration of being Filipin@. We’re supposed to reject it, but sadly many of us either embrace it or just don’t care enough about it.

Hopefully those Filipin@s will someday open their eyes and see how fucking messed up it all is. Dear Filipin@s, please don’t support such a gross perception of yourselves.

Fuck fetishization. Fuck racism. Fuck whiteness. Fuck being “exotic.”

I AM NOT EXOTIC. I’m not a strange dish or some kind of imported rug.

I’m a human being.

And the same goes for you. Remember this and have a good life.
