Every time I try to interact with people in my acting class they all do that *nod* “mhm” thing you do to people when you don’t want to interact with someone. I think they all think I’m an asshole cause I’m quiet and keep to myself. Interacting with people I don’t know is really hard for me and now that I’m becoming comfortable with the class they’re kind of over me.
I have this class every day and everyone talks to each other and I just feel like such an idiot because I don’t know how to integrate.
lupita nyong’o, like matthew mcconaughey, portrayed a real-life person who is no longer alive and was so self-aware and graceful to automatically recognize patsy’s struggles. mcconaughey called himself his hero and never even mentioned the victims of HIV/AIDS despite the fact that he would not have won an oscar if a man hadn’t died from AIDS. think about that.
Some people confuse a good relationship with the “honeymoon” phase of their relationship.
That phase doesn’t last forever. You’re eventually going to run into hiccups and problems and if you’re both as ready as you think you are, you’ll be willing to work together to solve said hiccups and problems as oppose to thinking a relationship has to stay in the honeymoon phase in order to be considered healthy.
Often, in an immigrant family, it’s a very big departure for a child to say: I want to be an artist, not a doctor, not a lawyer, or an engineer. The father, here, tells his daughter what so many immigrant parents tell their children: Art is not the safest route in life. We didn’t sacrifice all this for you to take up a precarious profession.
He tries to comfort her, at the same time, by insisting that being an immigrant makes her an artist already. And this is a fascinating notion: that re-creating yourself this way, re-creating your entire life is a form of reinvention on par with the greatest works of literature. This brings art into the realm of what ordinary people do to in order to survive. It takes away the notion that art is too lofty for the masses, and puts it in the day-to-day. I’ve never seen anyone connect being an artist and an immigrant so explicitly, and for me it was a revelation.
Tbh I only want to get a job again so I can afford new shoes for the ArtRave. All I own are boots and too-high heels that I hardly ever wear anymore because of the gotdamn ice here and I’m not wanting to break my ankles again
I just spent like an hour filling my imaginary shopping cart on elf cause their 50% off sale is giving me mad deal boners but the closer I got to the free shipping limit the more I realized I have no use or money for any of it. I think that instead of spending $35 on the same red, pink, and coral shades of lip products I should definitely save for some killer shades from MELT.
A friend has helped me arrive at the conclusion that I no longer feel comfortable entertaining an audience on here for no other reason than because “it is just the nature of this site.” If you’re reading this and we are not mutually following one another, I ask you please unfollow me as soon as possible. I will be reblogging this message routinely until you’ve all successfully unfollowed. Thank you for having had the bad sense to follow me in the first place.
