The Cure | Close To Me

"Frustrated humming with your head under the pillow, like the end of the day where you feel nothing has been achieved and you’re in a hurry to get the day over with so you can start the next one. You tell yourself you’re going to do lots of positive things. But the next day is just like the one before. Sometimes it goes on for weeks."




do you think utena ever gets tired of walking up all those fucking stairs

it’s how she stays in such great shape

utena complains to the student council enough to get an elevator installed but theres another goddamn metaphor inside it

it’s a story about a trust-fund jock who cheats off of his smart friend, is basically just good at sports, and who grows up to become a cop who peaked in high school. Aimed at nerds.

 Whisper of the Heart | 1995 
As higher education is transformed into a business or increasingly militarized, young people find themselves on campuses that look more like malls or recruiting stations for the national security state. Moreover, they are increasingly taught by professors who are hired on a contractual basis, have obscene work loads, and can barely make enough money to survive. Tenured faculty members are now called upon to generate grants, establish close partnerships with corporations, and teach courses that have practical value in the marketplace. What was once the hidden curriculum of many universities—the subordination of higher education to corporate values—has now become an open and much celebrated policy of both public and private higher education. There is little in this vision of the university that imagines young people as critical citizens or critical agents, educated to take seriously their role in addressing important social issues and bearing some responsibility for strengthening and deepening the reach of a real and substantive democracy. Addressing education as a democratic endeavour begins with the recognition that higher education is more than an investment opportunity, citizenship is about more than consuming, learning is about more than preparing for a job, and democracy is about more the false choices offered under a rigged corporate state and marketplace.


April showers are rolling in a little early. I’m worried my cacti aren’t cut out for this environment.

I’ve been doing landscapes partially to improve and also for school….the final versions are a little different from these guys but I still really like how they came out. Also revisited a couple of prior speedpaints to clean up as well!
