My life is a constant struggle between the desire to not be alive anymore and the desire to live forever in an immortal robot body.
I AM TEN MINUTES INTO THE VIKINGS PREMIERE AND I DON’T WANT TO WATCH ANYMORE.
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
I could live like a trappist monk with Wifi. I can just draw, read, play, watch, surf, eat, sleep and learn forever. I agree, being comfortable doesn’t take much. Work smart, not hard.
This is the kind of thing written by someone who doesn’t really fathom what no money means. It’s a nice thought and all but our generation is one built on dept. You can draw comics saying it doesn’t take much to live comfortably all day long they don’t actually make people’s student loans go away.
This made me so angry I want to punch a wall.
No seriously. Eff you: this is the kind of attitude that makes people think they can pay their employees next to nothing because they’re allowing them to do a job they like in return for “experience” and things “to put in your resume”. This is telling people who haven’t found a way to sell their talents they’re not creative enough. This is telling people who have just been lucky that they can laugh at everyone else’s face and say “hey loser everyone can make it. you just haven’t tried hard enough”.
And let’s not forget the fact that some people have to think about supporting someone other than themselves (a parent, a sibling, a spouse, if not a whole FAMILY). and you know what? being creative takes time, and sometimes (OFTEN) money, and it means taking risks. which is something NOT EVERYONE can afford.
and sometimes you do everything right and you’re just UNLUCKY.
would i like doing the job i love? would i like taking a chance and sell my talents? yes, of course. (WHO would want to get stuck doing something they hate?…)
but if it were as easy as jotting down a comic or writing a tumblr rant, then we’de be all doing that.
reasons to not have a two-year hiatus for your tv show: fans will have a lot of time to realize the problematic things about the show and will be disillusioned when it finally airs again
I don’t think you’re supposed to have to try this hard to be okay.
