If you relapse, repeat after me:
- You are not weak.
- You have not lost this battle.
- You are not selfish.
- You are not out of control.
- All the progress you made hasn’t magically disappeared.
- You are not a failure.
- Life is a cycle of highs and lows- good times are ahead, so keep going forward.
- You matter.
I feel nothing
I feel everything.
I don’t know which is worse.
5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces
Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.
FFXV TRAILERS OVER THE YEARS
Also known as : “FF15, it’s been 8 years.”
Anonymous said: don't you hate how misogynistic and horrible it is that they gave samus high heels in smash bros? it doesnt make sense and it is impractical as fuck
anon is actually right, why should samus’s design include high heels? Pretty illogical choice for someone who is in combat.
But no, let’s celebrate this so-called witty use of this gif above.
this is bullshit
Sorry no. Until there are men in speedos, or something equally sexist and ridiculous on the other side, “it’s a fucking video game” is the worst cop-out in history. The same dudebros who hide behind “it’s a video game” would be the first ones complaining if there was something even vaguely homosexual or if the men were in something emasculating. Samus in armor is fine. Samus in the hyper-sexualized “zero” suit is sexism, plain and simple, I don’t give a damn how you rationalize it.
LLiterally the same game folks.
Excuse you about high heels being impractical.
Except that KOS-MOS is a robot (who happens to be pretty sexualized too… also T-elos… maybe Takahashi MEANT for them to look like hookers *considering who they were based on, but I have no idea if it was done on purpose or just the designers being pervs… considering MOMO’s gratuitous panty shots in Ep1 and the hentai artist hired for Ep3… who apparently tried to sexualize Shion too, though I think her outfit looks more weird than sexy to me* but still, it feels jarring to have your super anti alien humanoid weapons look like prostitutes… on military/scientific ships/bases*) ?
As a woman, I agree that it is impractical as fuck. Your entire body is leaning forward when you wear them (which is bad for your back, I got hurt wearing high heels and I’ll never wear those again *smaller heels are better… and even that SUCKS for long walks*). Just try walking while doing Michael Jackson’s famous anti gravity lean… without the nail under your shoes. That’s how it feels.
I can’t even imagine how shitty heels would be for fighting. Most designers give those to female characters ONLY for sexiness (and it’s easier to do so when your female characters are 3D/2D instead of real actresses). Let’s not try to pretend high heels are practical, really.
(print for matsuricon, will probably undergo a few more changes before printing, but for now i’ve got other things to work on)
