Can we stop with the whole “go outside” thing? Like telling people to go outside because they are being ignorant or you’re not understanding them is ableist and stupid. Like first of all, just explain to them how they’re wrong and try to educate people rather than being rude.
Second of all, even if you “go outside” you don’t usually interact with everyone and get correct information. If you “go outside” you’re not going to hear news about other countries.
The internet is a place where you can learn and communicate with others. You don’t have to go outside to know things unless they require hands on experience. You don’t have to go outside to make meaningful relationships. You don’t have to go outside to know what’s going on with the world.
Yes, going outside can help with all of these things. It’ll help you understand things better and see stuff first hand. But not everyone is able bodied or generally healthy enough to “go outside” so they know what’s going on in their communities.
It’s just stupid telling someone to go outside as a refute. Not everyone has a safe environment where they can go, whether it’s just for a pleasant walk, to meet new people, or join LGBT+ clubs.
Through the Internet you meet real people. Have discussions and conversations with real people. You can find creditable news and information on the internet.
So no, you don’t have to go outside or tell people to go outside to at least grasp an understanding of how the world is. The internet just gives various view points on just about everything. And you can make friends through the internet as well.
And if you’re just going to say “it’s just a joke,” well, hate to break it to you, but it’s probably only funny to you and other rude people. Bc it really isn’t funny. It doesn’t help anything or add to discourse. Just stop. Educate yourself and others without being a jackass. Be open to new concepts and be open to the possibility of you being wrong.
None of you will grow if you continue living in the mindset that you’re always right and don’t have to learn or look up anything new. Especially on subjects you think you’re an expert in. There’s always room to grow.
“Go outside” isn’t funny and doesn’t do/add to anything.
Be open to the possibility you’re wrong and be open to learning about new things and other peoples point of views.
Today was my last day at my internship. People, I had a blast there and I learned so much! To tell you the truth, I have mixed feelings about leaving.
On one side, I will miss the team incredibly. They have taught and supported me so much, and the team’s atmosphere was amazing. Really, we laughed so much, being damn sarcastic (in a good and funny way) and they saw and treated me like a real employee and colleague, and I just felt so appreciated, and the feeling of being really productive too… just gives me tingles x3
But then there is the side that I will have lot’s of free time. It wasn’t exactly close to my home. Getting out of bed at 5:40 am and coming back home at 7:00 pm really took a lot of energy from me. The fact that the company and people there were so great helped me to push on, because I loved it and it was all worth it in the end. But like I said, I have 2 weeks off now (tomorrow, Friday, I have to do one last thing at school). Lot’s of time to catch up here on Tumblr, sharing my thoughts and keep going with my edits and creativity. I’ve missed you all xD
As you may have heard, I had a internship at a online marketing company. I learned all the ins and outs about communication, marketing of course, SEO blog and text writing, lot’s of new design skills (making logo’s, folders and websites). And I have come to the conclusion that I really want to continue as a allround online marketeer. My dream would be, to be able to work as a online marketeer for a game company. Who knows though, in about 2 weeks I’ll start another minor ‘Visualisation & Game Development’, where there are a lot of people with connections to large game companies (one teacher I know, got to work as a 3D animator at Blizzard, so you never know). I do know that it is all about connections in this world.
But I think when I am finished with school and get my Bachelor, I’ll be glad to just find a job at first and grow my skills and earn some real money.
So yeah hahaha that’s the update about me and my current personal situation. I just felt like sharing this with you all. I’ve got so much motivation and drive and…. being really happy at the moment for having discovered new skills within myself… and its such a boost to me.
