kowabungadoodles:

A comic about looking after yourself, your loved ones and your mental health during the tough times ahead.
I started this last November, when people were hurting so hard it was difficult to function - I’m sorry it took me so long to finish it.  

Everyday activism you can do when you feel powerless.
And when you feel stronger, Punch back.

I got my heart broken and I survived, I failed 3 courses in university and graduated, I got rejected in the very first job I applied for and got promoted yesterday, I went through hard times with my family but then two years later, we laughed our hearts out over lunch, The closest friends disappointed me several times but I made new friends and loved them with all my heart. I did it once, I can do it again.

I NEEDED THIS SO BADLY

I NEEDED THIS TOO

At age 23, Tina Fey was working at a YMCA.

At age 23, Oprah was fired from her first reporting job. 

At age 24, Stephen King was working as a janitor and living in a trailer. 

At age 27, Vincent Van Gogh failed as a missionary and decided to go to art school.  

At age 28, J.K. Rowling was a suicidal single parent living on welfare.

At age 28, Wayne Coyne ( from The Flaming Lips) was a fry cook.

At age 30, Harrison Ford was a carpenter. 

At age 30, Martha Stewart was a stockbroker. 

At age 37, Ang Lee was a stay-at-home-dad working odd jobs.

Julia Child released her first cookbook at age 39, and got her own cooking show at age 51.

Vera Wang failed to make the Olympic figure skating team, didn’t get the Editor-in-Chief position at Vogue, and designed her first dress at age 40.

Stan Lee didn’t release his first big comic book until he was 40.

Alan Rickman gave up his graphic design career to pursue acting at age 42.

Whatever your dream is, it is not too late to achieve it. You aren’t a failure because you haven’t found fame and fortune by the age of 21. Hell, it’s okay if you don’t even know what your dream is yet. Even if you’re flipping burgers, waiting tables or answering phones today, you never know where you’ll end up tomorrow.

Never tell yourself you’re too old to make it. 

Never tell yourself you missed your chance. 

Never tell yourself that you aren’t good enough. 

You can do it. Whatever it is.

If anyone tries to tell you that Shakespeare is stuffy or boring or highbrow, just remember that the word “nothing” was used in Elizabethan era slang as a euphemism for “vagina”. 

Shakespeare has a play called “Much Ado About Nothing”, which you could basically read in modern slang as “Freaking Out Over Pussy”. And that’s pretty much exactly what happens in the play.

As hard as it is to admit it, the barricade boys (in canon) were probably less than attractive.

Les Mis took place in the 1830s- where hygiene was not at its highest point. People took sponge baths occasionally, there was no skin care, no dental care, no deodorant, and a LOT of sweating (ten billion layers of clothes and no air conditioning??). So we can assume that even Enjolras, the beautiful god Apollo of the revolution, was probably sweaty, greasy, and smelled awful 24/7.

And Grantaire was described as hideous, so kinda makes you wonder.

While I generally agree that the odds of them all being modern underwear models is not high , I have to strongly disagree with the idea that they’d all have been hideous unwashed fiends, especially if you’re going to cite historical precedent.  I know it’s a common myth, but  the idea that everyone went around in a cloud of filth pre-20th century is totally inaccurate!   Hygiene was largely accessible, highly valued, and if anything more of a concern for young men of canon era than for young men today. 

- First, everyone who could afford it– and that’s all the Amis, even Feuilly– bathed every day. Yes , it was a sponge bath and washbasin cleaning, yes, they probably didn’t all scrub head to toe. But a good solid washing-off with soap and water is a washing-off with soap and water. They’d have been getting their torsos every day. The idea of the French not bathing at all was very popular with British, because, well, national prejudice. There had been Some Wars, things got said. But the French valued cleanliness too, and bathing had been on the upswing since the previous century. 

(also, it was actually much cooler in canon-era France than it is now. Those multiple layers made a lot more sense in the little ice age!

(and now a cut, because this gets long!)

I get pregnant, throw a “gender reveal” party, cut open the cake to reveal a landslide of green m&ms. “what does green mean??” my relatives ask, scandalized. in their confusion, they fail to notice that the doors have been barred. they are now my captive audience. “settle in, folks,” I say, “it’s time for gender theory 101. I have slides.”

There are countless reasons to keep going: to go on more adventures, pet more dogs, have more laughs, learn new languages. But when those reasons don’t seem like enough, have faith in the reasons you have yet to discover.
