Society values the youth. Any time a young person does something does some considered exceptional for their age it's all over the media. Even online there are amazing artists that have only entered their teens. Seeing this can make anyone feel insecure about their age and what they've accomplished. I see it on here all the time, and it would be a lie if I said I didn't have those feelings.

Your potential doesn't diminish at the age of 25 and it certainly doesn't extinguish itself at the rip old age of 30. Use this thread to collect, document and discussion people that accomplished goal and/or became successful at a later age from what we see. When those exposes is asymmetrical toward those younger, it makes us feel it if you can't young it doesn't exist. Well, /that's not true/. We'll never get younger, only older. So, it's best we realise that /our life isn't over/ and we have decades left to live. Do something you enjoy and be proud of it. We can go it sisters.

First example is this BAD ASS, right here. Her name is Mary Hobson.
>She learned Russian at 56, as you felt she wouldn't be able to fully understand "War and Peace" if you didn't read it in Tolstoy's original text.

Out of morbid curiosity I looked up her profile and only have seen 1 page of posts so far but, holy fuck.

Provo un odio viscerale per i maschi che si truccano e parlano mezzo in italiano e mezzo in inglese.
Non capisco chi li trova adorabili o piccoli angeli, per me sono solo un sacco irritanti, a partire dalle loro mani tozze e grosse tipiche maschili con degli artigli orrendi, il trucco su di loro li rende dei pagliacci assurdi.

Does anyone have supernatural powers like telekinesis, ESP, mind-reading, etc.?

I was lurking in LSA and found this thread talking about it https://www.lipstickalley.com/threads/anyone-here-or-know-someone-with-supernatural-powers.3420086/ and thought it would be an interesting topic for the board!

Most likely coincidences but.

Deja vus used to be very frequent.
A song (usually old ones/not recent radio hits) would pop into my head at random and the person next to me would either start singing it or talk about it without saying a word about it previously.

Not a superpower but I can tell when I’m about to have sleep paralysis now so I always tell myself to not open my eyes before getting my limbs to move.
Also this is just my retarded ass subconsciously picking up on things but throughout my life I’d have dreams about a guy and then that next day or soon after they’d reveal their feelings for me. It’s weird. It’s like we meet in dreamscape and then they feel comfortable admitting their feelings after gaging my reaction.

None of these were superpowers and it’s kinda blogposting but it was nice to write out. I’d love love love to be able to astral project sometime.

I'm not American either but from what I can see on twitter and LSA they're acting like her actions nullifies the fact that she's half south african so they call her white or like she's a total race traitor when her actions seem personal and she doesn't seem to speak for anyone else. Americans on LSA in general are fucking crazy when it comes to talking about race, they never apply the same logic and rules to anyone and say the exact same bullshit as unironic white supremacists and when Africans correct them they ignore them, I guess it's because of the one drop rule?

Post artwork that's been fixed, red-lined, redrawn, etc.

This is in part to stop the art cow threads from getting derailed. If you want to post a redline of Holly Brown's work, post it here. If you want to post liquefied art of Spechie's, post it here. If you recently fixed your own art work or redrew it, post it here.

All art posted on here is open to critique, so don't post anything you'll get touchy about.

The point is to have a "before" and "after" for those of us who find those picture satisfying or a detailed explanation of why the work is incorrect for those of us who are not artistically inclined.

Not a youtuber but manga materials is a really good resource for art fundamentals. The person running it does a lot of in-depth studies about things like muscle positioning, joint movement, pose conducting, proportion control, clothing draping etc. In general you should look into professional artists that actually make studies and walk you through why things work the way they do complete with examples. I know drawing from life gets glorified everywhere but there's a point to it because painting and drawing from photographs while taking them apart and observing every detail is much more beneficial than just reading a million drawing books and trying to memorize the rules. I too can vouch for Proko to be a pretty good youtube channel with varying study videos with different techniques and subject matters. I also think trying other art mediums like sculpting are extremely beneficial in learning more about rendering.

What is your relationship with your condition?
Do you have an official diagnosis?
Do you take any meds or refuse to?
Or just share experiences and struggles, what you hate about stereotypes and what nice representation do you like.

No. 557186

Having a witness for your childhood behaviour is essential for an accurate diagnosis. Other conditions can cause autism-like traits and behaviour, and knowing when your symptoms started is crucial for narrowing things down.
As an example, if you were bullied as a child the trauma could cause long term difficulties with social interaction, so the psychologist will need to know if your social difficulties predate this trauma to rule it out as a cause.

You should be able to find someone willing to omit the parental interview, or use an older sibling or other close relative if you have one, but don't be surprised if you come out of that with a diagnosis of "could maybe be autism?"

No. 557337

TIL we got another name for that lel.
MDD, Anxiety and (finally) ADD here. I just always fucking knew that i got it but went through several hoops of false diagnoses as bipolar and long, long years of denial before getting hep that resulted in unhealthy coping mechanism.

I refused the bipolar medication that makes me feel like a hungry zombie, but zoloft and ritalin is literal godsend.

Unlike the anon >>556899 i like to abandon my project midway to do fuckall. I'd butt in to other people's assignment or i dunno clean the house for hundreth time or watch rhinoceros giving birth? Conceptually im the shit but follow through is hell. In the end i managed a passing grade kek. But yeah, check to all above and more. Self esteem deeper than Mariana Trench and my former classmate and workmate looks at me like a retarded spaz.

Thank god for meds cause id anheroed if this keeps up.

Scotland and Wales? Nothing. Wales voted for Brexit, and Scotland can't have another independence referendum unless one is granted by the UK government, who have already said they won't grant another so soon.

As for Northern Ireland, that's a big question nobody knows the answer to. Ireland is still part of the EU, so with Northern Ireland leaving the EU along with the UK that means there could be border issues.
