"I showed this to my parents and asked them if it scared them. They responded: ‘why would a picture of a hat scare us?’ My picture was not of a hat. To explain, I drew a second picture: it was a boa constrictor that had swallowed an entire elephant whole. The adults told me to stop drawing snakes and focus on geography and math and history and grammar, and thus I abandoned a great life as a painter. The adults can never understand anything by themselves and it wears me out to always have to give explanations—so, I never talk to them about boa constrictors, or of ancient forests, or of stars.” “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye” - Le Petit Prince

Today’s troubles:

I need to do laundry but it’s Sunday and everyone will be doing it, even as late as 9pm.

I have to do German homework, due at 9am.

I feel gross and greasy and need to take a shower, but i did my nails like 3 hours ago but of course they’ll get fucked up as I wash my hair.

I have not gone outside today. Which, not actually a problem.

But I’m gonna watch the new Doctor Who soon, so helloooooo procrastination.

The improv team I was on in high school only had one rank: “co-captain.” If you joined the improv team, you were automatically a co-captain. It wasn’t to make everyone equal within the club dynamic or anything like that, we just all knew that we would have to list extracurriculars on our college applications, and you could make yourself look more impressive by putting “co-captain” without specifying how many other captains the team had or how a member becomes a captain.

another clothing art theft story i can add to my list. the popular online clothing store Romwe has decided to steal my artwork without permission for a new sweater design. (it’s a re-coloring of my original artwork which can be seen here.) just so you know: i’m not making a penny off of this! please do NOT buy this item, and if you can/feel like it, spread the word about what jerks Romwe are :(

Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China. 

For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment. 

Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles. 

From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.

She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.

SOURCE

I should have added this in the original post but after attention in the Chinese press, Qian traveled to Beijing to receive free artificial limbs at the China Rehabilitation Research Center, a center that has been providing help to the disabled in China for over 20 years. At 18 years old she is ready for her full adult prosthetics.

One day in Disneyland I decided to hunt down all the Princesses because I was so inspired with this photo series “#followmeto.” So I present to you the DISNEY PRINCESS VERSION OF IT!

It took me a day to find 8 of them, and two of them took me the next day because all the Princesses leave once the sun goes down in Disneyland. BUT I HAD A BLAST WITH ALL OF THEM! I HAD SO MUCH FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN with these photoshoots. If you want me to post the ones with the Classic characters and the other ones too just message me! PLEASE DON’T REPOST! JUST REBLOG! OR IF YOU DO, JUST TAG, @frncissdominc! I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY THESE AS MUCH AS I HAVE TAKEN THEM! :D!

After 2 hours of being curled up or in the bathroom, my cramps have subsided and my legs are starting to warm up.

Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.
