I don't know if you're still interested in the Teenage Mecha Ninja Turtles short (but if you aren't, feel free to ignore this message), but I noticed that the children are also named after more contemporary artists that relate to their heritage. Frida = Frida Kahlo, Basque = Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kusama = Yayoi Kusama, Jackson = Jackson Pollock. As an art major who barely passed art history, I got all giddy for recognizing the names! Thought this might be fun to share!

holy shit the artist symbolism goes deeper

i’m kicking myself, that’s so great??? like i didn’t even know that stuff (art history was never my strong point, i was more the sort to do whatever the fuck i wanted in class and BS my way through everything else because **~art is interpretive~**), but i’m so pumped that it’s a thing!!

i’m so happy the creators of that short put so much thought into their work- the continuation of the artist names thing is really quite sweet, and shows how much they loved the story idea, (i love it even more now omg) not to mention that it states the races of each kid, which makes me even happier as a fan-writer. so much possibility, now that i’ve got canon info.

so yeah much thanks to you anon, i can work with so much more depth now that i’ve got this info. plus add jokes about fate since all the kids have artist names despite not being related (that we yet know)

So at my last college we had a jazz teacher (who btw I really disliked due to a. his rudeness and b. his obvious favouritism) and he told us that as dancers if we hadn’t had a double hip replacement by the time we were 40 we weren’t working hard enough. I was like what??? The point of training is that we learn how to do moves correctly and technically so we don’t injure ourselves! Bear in mind this college was possibly regarded as the top dance/musical theatre college in the U.K. I think its such a toxic mindset that forces young dancers to overwork, burn out and end up injured.

Talking to someone every single day or hours can be pretty destructive because there will come a day where you don’t speak at all and it’s going to be the loneliest feeling in the world.

Sometimes it’s good to just live life silently. Pay attention to your thoughts as they come and go, and reflect upon your feelings. Sometimes being overly social can offset our inner peace.

Boi, can you believe it’s already been a whole year since Horikoshi saved my life

Always start your day off on a good note. Put both feet on the floor, and tell yourself you’re ready for the day. Breathe. Remember that this day cannot be relived, and so you will live every second to its very best.

It occurs to me that the reason Todoroki is so chill about Bakugou throwing giant fits is because he’s already faced worse at home and he knows what bluster vs. an actual threat looks like
