If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.

this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.

last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks

Get excited, motherfuckers.  Without bees, we will die off.  Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs.  Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.

Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY. 
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Giving bees a “bee block” alone is a huge load off their backs! You can buy homes here or  You can even build your own. 
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Why isn’t this more of an issue?
Like why is our entire existence at stake and all anyone wants to talk about on the news is the “TWERKING PHENOMENON”.

I’m bad at explaining, but lemme try to explain this. Other than pesticides, global warming is another cause, since it throws off the bees senses and causes it do die by leaving the hive to early, etc. Not only that, but there’s a strange thing that’s been going on where bees leave their hives and never come back. Many beekeepers reported having bees leave their hive and instead of coming back, just don’t. It’s called Colony Collapse Disorder.
CCD is on the rise and the increasing group bee death has been happening around the same time every year. Instead of worrying about things they already have (food, shelter, etc), I kind of suggest writing to the government or whoever you need to write to in order to get the pesticide thing under control.

Also, if you neeeeed to use pesticides, Marigolds.
Eat them.
Make them into a tea.
Spray said cooled tea in you garden
plant them around your garden
boom
pesticide without killing bees.

I’ve been living on my own for almost 4 years now and I have like 50 tabs open.
Bless the person who put together this post, it ought to be made into a pamphlet for everyone in highschool/college.

omg

A state of anxiety

I’m scared shitless about this training, and I’m going to the same command as the guy who molested me to be with my husband, whom I love dearly.
I realize fully what I signed up for, but I’m not mentally prepared anymore. I’m anxious all the time, but I have a good guise of being normal-ish. It’s a ruse I’ve learned because I’ve been surviving rather than living thanks to an onset if acute depression in high school.
My husband, bless his face, when I tell him about my anxiety and fears he tells me to quit. You can’t just quit feeling fear and mistrust of people at large immediately because of one person. He means so much to me. It aggravates me, though, when I say I’m not happy, he says “are you unhappy with me”. I’m unhappy with my prison if a contract. I’m always happy when I’m with him.
If I deploy because some shit hits the fan in the Ukraine, I only thinking the worst things that could happen due to the mass of worry and sadness I’ve turned into.
I needed to vent because vocalization isn’t my strong suit.

Having troubles with facial angles in your drawing style?
Try a 3D sculpture of your art in your own style in a free program that is simple and very easy to use.
The program is called Sculptris and is a free off-shoot program from Zbrush, that program that you keep hearing about but either takes selling your kidneys or piracy to actually use. 
If you download it and sculpt out a facial model, you can have references for your own work for all of time. No more endlessly searching Google for reference materials or twisting/rotating/flipping a drawing to see if there are flaws. And you can easily edit it to create more facial types. This way, you can make character references for any and every face and facial angle that you can think of.
The program offers mirroring right from the start, so your faces will be perfectly symmetrical. You can turn off the symmetry for things like scars or otherwise. 
It takes a little time. For instance, I downloaded the program on Christmas and, in my spare time, this took a few days of getting familiar with the program (first day) and then sculpting for a few minutes each day, mostly due to my perfectionist nature. And this one isn’t even done. I still have to mold the mouth, ears, and other smaller aspects before I consider it done. However, I was so giddy over the possibilities that I wanted to share this with my fellow artists.
From now on, I have reference for a face in my own style and will be able to create things so much easier in the future. I hope that this helps you guys and that you have fun with it. 

I absolutely recommend Sculptris!

A really great watered-down version of ZBrush. Perfect for people who have never used any 3D software before.
