Go Forth and Educate Yourselves!
I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pv8mCHbOrs (Part 1)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neEVoFODQOE (Part 2 - Has very important points on Reverse Racism and how it doesn’t exist, and it also dismantles the “We All Bleed Red” mentality.)
Not only should you educate yourself but use this for good. Look around you and help others who don’t have this privilege. Hiring, donating, community service, etc.
After this post went viral, the original artist had to delete their tumblr because they were inundated with death threats.
There were people more offended by this comic than offended by the existence of racial disparities—to the point where they threatened this artist’s life.
Trigger actually does mean “this irritates me”. Irritation is triggered by seeing said grass.
There are not legitimate and non legitimate triggers.
If something leads to an emotion, it has triggered it and is therefore a trigger.
Simple as that.
I hacked the kardashian app so I have unlimited fund$$

Go fuck yourself, you piece of shit. You’re the reason society is crumbling. In 20 years, New York is going to be a pile of ash and dust because people like you exist. This is why I fucking hate tubmlr.

Anatomy of an AP Art Student’s Desk: Part I, before the desk is actually even in the room.
I’m currently in the process of replacing my very old and very short art desk, so I thought I could do a quick-n-snarky inventory just for funsies.
Part I: Side Desk
- Half built shrine to the god Thespus, because this art student is also a theatre geek. Shrine is complete with incense, crystal ball, Honor Thespian certificate, and vague ceramic pieces that a younger student made me.
- Under the desk, we have a travel easel and storage container of fabric (because all my money is going to art supplies, so I’m making my own clothes. Oops).
Part II: Short Desk
- This desk is barely knee-high when you stand next to it, so a pillow and prep-school blanket are necessary to achieve maximum sitting comfort.
- Below the desk, we have boxes of snacks (so that I don’t ever have to leave), poly-fill (from my stuffed animal making phase), and a box labelled “Strong, Rebeca” (stolen from a roommate to ship my art home) containing nothing important, but hey, maybe someday?
- Middle shelf: Yarn, white t-shirts from an abandoned project, abandoned iPad, and other assorted crap. Next to this shelf is every type of paper and canvas you could possibly imagine.
- On top of the desk: in-progress linocut project and various knives, diet soda, brushes and water, legal pad and pens, painting of someone’s breasts, and a motivational (?) fox statuette. Also, my retainer case, missing the actual retainer for a few years now.
Part III: The Right Shelves
- On the first set of shelves: Lamp, gel pens, charcoal of varying thicknesses, printing inks, mod podge, about 7000 crayons, higgins watercolor inks, assorted brayers, blades, vine charcoal, and those letter beads (for making snarky bracelets). Next to the shelf, a bright green tube of drawings.
- On the second set: Watercolors, watercolor paper, cranberry juice, an alpaca pencil case, and more legal pads.
Can you tell I have a legal pad problem? I’m such a compulsive list maker, I think I would die if I had to stop buying them.
I would also like to mention that 90% of the art on my walls was given to me by the impeccable hipmamajenn, and the A+ portraits of me were done by an Interlochen student named Natalie!
go look at my collegeapp blog, ya nerds.
to sneak out or not to sneak out
that is the question
