WHY DOES NOBODY TALK ABOUT HOW HANJI RAN INTO A LOCKED DOOR AT TOP SPEED AND PETRA HAD TO OPEN IT FOR HER LIKE OMG HANJI.
Levi looks so used to it too this is gold
okay i’m super ticked off right now.
so my mom walked downstairs because it early and she’s got to leave for work. the conversation is usual and she’s asking me to do things for her, fine normal. Then she looks at me as she’s getting her shoes and says “What are you even doing over there on your laptop? Are you playing tumblr or pokemon? You’re writing code over there aren’t you?” (i have no fucking clue where this code thing came from??? mom i took an into to c++ class in high school… i don’t know shit about this code youre talking about???)
so she walks over the computer and hello i’m working on art right now. specifically this
not inappropriate or anything so i didn’t feel any need to be secretive about it with her.
And here’s the GREAT part. She looks at my screen and then me and goes in an incredibly condescending voice “Oh. You’re just drawing cartoons.”
"You don’t take your art seriously."
"You think that cartoons isn’t serious?"
"Cartoons aren’t serious. They’re just a hobby. You should be taking classes to learn to actually draw and make money.”
I want to fucking puke. This isn’t the first time my mom has basically told me that any kind of cartoony drawing or animation is immature and not something of value.
First of all, NO MOM, cartoony art is not worth ANY LESS than other art styles. but YES, I should take art classes because that would help me improve overall as an artist, however, there were none at a reasonable time during this term so i didn’t take any. AND NO, I’m sorry but I don’t want to do art as a profession. It makes me happy to do art, but it is not the passion that i wan’t to pursue. And there is nothing wrong with it being just a HOBBY FOR ME. STOP TRYING TO UNDERMINE WHAT I ENJOY DOING AND TELL ME THAT EVEN THOUGH I’VE WORKED HARD TO GET MY ART STYLE TO WHAT IT IS NOW, IMPROVING AND CHANGING, THAT JUST BECAUSE ITS CARTOONY THAT IT’S NOT WORTH THE TIME.
One of the few things that can get me absolutely livid, is when someone says something like this. and to top it all off, to their own child?!
Art isn’t just the ability to copy what you see onto paper.

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services.
