Sailor Moon: Modern Guardians
With the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon happening, I decided to redesign the five main Sailor Scouts and give their outfits/uniforms and tailor them to fit each character a little more/be less dated. I replaced their tiaras for high-tech visors that vary slightly for each scout.
Originally, I was going to wait to post these rough pieces once I finished the actual piece for an upcoming Sailor Moon art show I was doing but my twin brother wscottforbes wanted to post his version of it so here are mine! A rather weird style for me to draw in… I drew most of these a few months ago. Expect a better piece to be posted later in the month/August.
Kitty is too photogenic.
yo can I drop some advice all you kids trying to get entry level jobs need to learn? I learned it the hard way and now I shall impart that to you.
when you see this shit, that goes “you need like 10 years experience and all this other qualifications nobody with all that would ever apply for a job like this with”, that means one thing: they are weeding out people who don’t believe they can achieve that level. They go “sigh, I can’t even compete, fuck it.” and don’t apply, saving the company the trouble.
What you, as a fresh new student, need to do- is apply anyway with a Luffy-like optimism that you will get that fucking job!! You don’t have a million years experience BUT YOU’LL TRY AND NEVER GIVE UP ETC. You write an opener letter with that in it, submit your shit, and get that goddamn job because they just found somebody who’s willing to give it a try anyway, who has the confidence and the ability to play with the big boys and they will train you to become a master because fresh meat is vital to the industry.
tldr: APPLY ANYWAY, YOUNG GRASSHOPPER
i really wish i’d read this three months ago
to those who are still looking for their first job: it wouldn’t hurt to try. the worst thing that can happen is that you get a “no”
So, really interesting statistic that just came up in hiring diversity training at work: women will typically only apply to a position if they feel they meet 100% of the requirements. Men will typically apply if they feel they meet just 60%.
And guess what? They still get hired, because a lot of job descriptions are total garbage. These aren’t crafted masterpieces handed down from the divine goddess of Human Resources. These are things that were thrown together at the last minute 3 years ago by some manager with too many more important things to do, and they’ve been used untouched ever since.
Think about this, and think about those numbers, ladies. Think long and hard about this statistic next time you are looking at a job description and telling yourself that you can’t cut it. You probably can, and applying is free.
(P.S.: I’m happy to give resume advice to people - especially new college grads in the tech industry. That’s the field I know and do interviews in; I’m not sure if my advice would be as applicable elsewhere.)
It’s really good to be positive and have that can-do attitude when you go for a job.
But do not for a moment think that when they are hiring, they are unbiased, because employers are BIASED AS FUCK.
Age, gender, nationality, all of these things will effect their choices. Fuck, even the amount of makeup you wear or the time spent on your hair will count against you, why? Because right now, we have a massive amount of people going for a small amount of jobs. And when you have that many applicant applying for a position who both do and don’t fit 100% of your actual job criteria? They’re going to narrow down their choices the petty way.
The one, key thing all employers want is someone who can walk into a job and do it with minimal training, because they’re pretty much all delusional and don’t realise that everyone needs training into a new position unless they’ve done it before, left, and are returning to it.
Which is why they go ‘entry level but needs x amount experience’. Because they want to not have to train you, but they don’t want you to expect a fair amount of pay for your experience, hence the entry level lable.
Even if you fit 100% of the criteria, if they don’t think you can do the jo with minimal training, or they just don’t like fat chicks, or they don’t think you live close enough, or they think because you have a degree you’ll want more pay, etcetc. That’s it. They cut you from the running. It’s that simple.
And it will happen over and over, so never fool yourself into thinking it’s as easy as being positive, because then it will hurt like a motherfucker when you get rejected multiple times and start to think it’s something wrong with you.
It’s nothing wrong with you, it’s what’s happened in the economy and the job market. I only know this because I’ve been unemployed for over a year and applied for over 250 jobs in that time with maybe five percentage of those leading to interviews and 1% ever giving me any feedback.
On top of this, I’ve also talked to a lot of other unemployed people who suffer the same problems finding work. Bias is alive and well because employers can afford to be biased, and there is nothing to stop them.
I mean, when a job center tells you to not mention you have a degree going for some jobs because employers think you’ll want too much money and will not hire you, you KNOW the problem is with the system.
When jobs use the word ‘junior’ to denote, not the experience level they want, but the pay grade they’re willing to give, you know it’s not you.
When there are as many unpaid internships being listed every week as there are paid jobs, with very little difference in the tasks and resposibilities expected in either role, you know it’s the system, and not you.
But please be aware, your best bet to getting a job is to be YOUNG. Places will hire you if they think they don’t have to pay you much, and if you start early you have the experience under your belt to get your foot in doors later.
It helps to be conventionally pretty too. Helps a lot actually. Also, knowing people in organisations is one of the best ways to get a job somewhere, so network.
The world is no longer fair, and if you are overweight, you don’t do trendy very well, you don’t know how to make your hair look fabulous, you’re going to find it hard because looking neat and tidy and practical is no longer enough. Not even to get a job making coffees or sandwiches.
Do your best. Make a super impressive resume. learn how to interview well, learn how to pander to what the employer wants: someone who will do the job with very little help and who doesn’t expect a huge salary. I’m not saying sell yourself out, but sometimes you just can’t afford to ask for more than minimum wage. It’s either that or continue not having a job.
Try to stay positive, try to remind yourself that you’re a fucking asset to anyone smart enough to hire you, but be aware that being confidant is not the only thing you need, and that it may be a longer, harder journey than you think.
Is that… is that even healthy?
There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.
I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.
nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case
(I like glowy things)
Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
Dorky robot husbands
