I don’t think people love me. They love versions of me I have spun for them, versions of me they have construed in their minds. The easy versions of me, the easy parts of me to love.

hi:

THOSE LITTLE MOMENTS IN BOOKS WHEN THEY ACTUALLY MAKE YOU FEEL SOMETHING, LIKE YOU SMILE OR KINDA GET SAD AND JUST REALLY FORGET YOURE READING SOMETHING MY FAVOURITE

Season 1 of the webseries, Féminim/Féminim, is finally on the interweb ya’ll.

I stayed up so late last night watching all 8 episodes and geeking out over how good it is. It starts off a bit slow, but episode 4 and onwards are flawless.

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

Every day I discover
more and more
beautiful things.
It’s enough to drive one mad.
I have such a desire
to do everything,
my head is bursting with it.
Claude Monet (via unmaiden)
That [The Fault in Our Stars] will be the last teenage movie that I’m going to do. Last year, when I made Fault, I could still empathize with adolescence. But I’m not a young adult anymore—I’m a woman. But I’ve never played my age before and that’s my next goal. It’s scary.

my friend took me out for a photo shoot and we went to this beautiful little spot in a park I’d never seen before

Well, female friendships are fucking extraordinary. They don’t have to be sexual to be intense love affairs. A breakup with a female friend can be more traumatic than a breakup with a lover. I’ve always been attracted to stories that look at the love-hate complexity of close female friendships. It’s ripe for drama. Did you see Frances Ha? That portrayed a female friendship I really understood.

Self-portrait//

Graphite and digital manipulation//

Explores the distortion anxiety can subject an individual to, questioning whether worry, stress and irrational fear is self-inflicted. Furthermore it reveals the chaos that lies beneath the mask an individual will do in an attempt to escape vulnerability and exposure. Each portrait, both individually and as a series, is a visual representation of the chaos and emotional stress overwhelming the anxious mind. Anxiety is a natural emotion that can, when in small dosages, motivate its victim, however in the ever increasing pace of our modern world and the digital age we live in, the expectations society holds for our youth and the anxiety and stress this consequently breeds is ultimately bringing our youth to their knees.
