morph-this-image

You don’t chose what you were born as, but you should %100 embrace what you are, whether that’s gender, weight-inclination, body shape, skin color, physical features, hair color. It’s hard, yes, but for your own sake, you must love who you are. I say this because in our society we urge people to be themselves, and tell them to be what they want to be, all the while simultaneously pressuring them towards certain images and sentiment through our culture and media. There’s so much conflict between the two ideas and now there are many people who don’t love who they are and seek to morph into some other image. I won’t point any specific examples because I want to hear your thoughts. What do you think are some examples that people in our society are experiencing a lack of self-acceptance? Do you think today’s generation is experiencing more identity issues?

hey, bb !! could you talk to me a bit more about winona?? tysm

i was so close to playing winona, so get ready for this !! i think admin court puts it best when she describes winona as the ‘ugly duckling turned beautiful swan.’ or at least that’s how winona sees it. growing up, she sadly learned to obsess over everything that was wrong with her body. it didn’t help that people like gideon were there to heighten her insecurities. the crowds she immersed herself in were always so judgmental, so it was only fitting that she tried to morph herself to fit the image of perfection. at the place she’s at currently, winona has learned how to mask her outward appearance into something beautiful and immaculate. she has learned how to cut out every embarrassing portion of her personality, even if it means she’s not staying true to herself. i like to imagine that when she was younger winona was more free-spirited and passionate. 

she runs around with peyton and kenna who sit comfortably on top of the social pyramid. they are all envied and they are supposed best friends, but all three of these girls deal with their own version of insecurities that laces their friendship with poison. winona can tell that her life is an imitation of something not real, but she tells herself that this is the person she’d rather be – that if she wasn’t this person, then she’d be the same girl that gideon laughed at all those years before. i also like to think that currently gideon hardly remembers that particular incident and sees winona as an equal, finding her attractive and what not. winona definitely remembers and is dead set on getting her vengeance. 

the only person who sees through winona’s lies is jasper who does take her on as a muse, but his vision of her is something that winona doesn’t expect. one reason she doesn’t want anything to do with jasper is because it’d be social sucide, but a bigger reason would be that secretly winona is scared that jasper will expose her to herself as who she truly is. jasper knows that winona is just holding everything in and is ready to explode. in that sense, winona is a dormant volcano. at some point in the roleplay, i do see her losing it in one way or another. i hope this helped and as always, let me know if i can help you with anything else and check out winona’s tag on our inspo blog. love you.

While its vibrant, constantly morphing images occasionally serve as illustrations of text, they more often connect in nonlinear fashion to other visual references throughout the book. They become allusions, allegories, and motifs, pitting realism against abstraction and making us aware that more meets the eye than is presented on the page. http://i2.wp.com/boingboing.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Sousanis-Unflattening-Excerpt31.jpg?w=100%25

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books' starred review of Neal Shusterman's CHALLENGER DEEP

We can’t believe we somehow missed seeing this starred review – the sixth starred review – of CHALLENGER DEEP (HarperTeen) by Neal Shusterman in the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books:

Caden Bosch is split between what he sees and what he believes to be true. On the one hand, he is a smart high school kid who has friends and gets good grades. On the other, he’s aboard an outré ship whose mission is to explore Challenger Deep, the deepest part of the Mariana Trench. The tragedy is that while Caden knows his reality is fractured, he can’t control what he believes, and that terrifies him; finally his parents have no recourse but to admit him to a psychiatric hospital. His shipmates, then, are the doctors, volunteers, and other teen patients in the ward, and while the adventure morphs into surreal images, their meanings surface in ironic bits of wit when he is at his most lucid; that is, when his meds are starting to work. The trial and error of getting the cocktail right, however, sends him more deeply into his delusion. Shusterman does a masterful job of warping Caden’s reality into fantasies, subtly highlighting how seemingly random strands of dissociative thought connect to reality. For instance, Dr. Poirot with his colorful Hawaiian shirts easily transmogrifies into the parrot of Caden’s crew, and his role there as mortal adversary of the captain signifies the intensity of the battle Caden’s mind is waging within itself. Drawing on the experiences of his son (who provides loose-limbed sketches throughout), Shusterman spools out the trajectories of Caden’s illness in ways consistent with the progression of schizoaffective disorder without pinning Caden down to a diagnosis, and he treats Caden’s character with a loving compassion clearly born of strong empathic understanding. The intensity of living inside Caden’s mind makes this a wrenching read, particularly at those moments when he is clear enough to articulate the fragile, tenuous borders of his inner landscape; it is a work that engenders respect for those fighting to stay afloat on choppy mental seas.
