not be a victim of romance.
not be a victim of circumstance.
I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.
I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
This is very important, and exactly why I truly believe figure drawing should be a required course for every college graduate, art student or not. My experience is somewhat similar to Noelle’s and I’m so thankful for figure drawing and for the opportunity to see a much broader variety of nude human forms than most people might. It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing I wish more people had access to.
imagine being in ravenclaw and going back to your common room stumbling drunk in the middle of the night after a magical night of partying and having to answer a fucking riddle in order to get in your own goddamn bedroom
"what gets wetter and wetter the more it dries"
"your mom eeyyyyyyy"
