Reminder: Don’t let your brain bully you, sometimes our minds are cruel to us. You deserve to live, you deserve to eat, you deserve to express your feelings. People do like you! You’re doing a pretty good job, and you are worth more than you give yourself credit for.
…exceeding just about everyone’s expectations but his own with a solo debut that came fully formed as something close to instantly timeless. “Sign of the Times” was so much more than the sum of its influences; a power ballad that synthesizes the best of U.K. rock history into something important, almost entirely cliché-free, and, well, meaningfully timely. It spends six minutes climbing its way skyward and just keeps going once it gets there, not ostentatious so much as naturally weightless, the first One Direction solo single to truly achieve escape velocity from the group’s gravitational pull.
the entire class has this ongoing joke about how ivan got his scar. the reality is that he got it because he walked into the corner of a wall when they were all little, but that’s no fun.
kim calls it the shark bite. alix says that ivan got in a knife fight in a back alley. max’s go to is that ivan was testing prototype weapons for the government. juleka says an eyebrow job gone wrong, sabrina says he just shaves it for style, and nathanael once said it was a mark of magic powers. nino jokes that this is why you should never let marinette use you for a model, marinette is offended and insists that it was because ivan had a deadly disease when he was younger. rose agrees with nathanael’s magic theory, mylène says it gives him his strength. chloé says ivan gave it to himself to look cooler.
alya and adrien have never heard the original story. they are very confused
As a younger me, I was always called names like ‘fat’ or ‘chubby’, and it really affected the way I see myself and how conscious I am about my weight. Being a curvier girl, I know that I’m heavy, but I can’t stand the fact that people see the word ‘fat’ as being bad. So, I’ve been trying to desensitize myself to it, and for some reason I felt like doing a doodle based off of it.
‘Fat’ isn’t a bad word. It’s a descriptive word that has been given bad context by bullies and people who don’t appreciate the person beneath the skin. So yes, I am FAT. I am round, chubby, curvy, chunky, pudgy, big boned, I am a bigger girl. But that does NOT mean that any of those words are bad things to say. Only if they are used by bullies.
