Thinking about making this an art blog again. It never really got off the ground before, but I’ve been really getting back into my art. It makes me happy again. So, yes or yes?
My university really makes some stupid mistakes sometimes.
|Anxiety:||Just calm down, everything will be fine. There is nothing to be worried about. Stop freaking out all the time.|
|Depression:||Stop being sad all the time. People out there have it worse off than you. Cheer up nothing is wrong.|
|Sexual Orientation:||It's just a phase. How can you know you are____ unless you had sexual experience.|
|Bipolar:||It's just mood swings, everyone has them.|
|Self harm:||Stop seeking attention. Stop trying to kill yourself.|
|Eating disorders:||Just eat. Stop being so picky.|
|Abuse:||Report who hurt you.|
|Suicide:||Stop being so cowardly.|
|Sexual assault:||You shouldn't have dressed like that. We were drunk, but you still said yes. You never outright said no.|
|Multiple Personality Disorder:||You are making it up. There is no such thing. They are just your imaginary friends.|
|Post Traumatic Stress Disorder:||It happened in the past, stop obsessing over it. Get over it.|
|Schizophrenia:||Its in your head. Stop trying to use voices as an excuse to not do something. You don't actually see them, you just want attention|
|please never say any of these things to someone who deals with these. If you hear someone say something like this to you or someone else, please say something. If you ever need someone to talk to please know that my ask is always open for you. I want to help as many people as i can.|
“The Red Balloon” is a very sweet and innocent tale until you realize that the balloon represented the postwar communist threat against France when… you know what? I’m gonna assume our college film professor was right. We didn’t get any of that out of it. It’s still très adorable.
Anyway, “The Red Balloon” and the Criterion Collection are free this weekend on Hulu, including “The Blob,” which, now that we think of it, was more about the creeping communist threat. To be honest, we were only in the film class to impress our older brother, the communist.
It really is adorable.
