My version of a “Calvin Klein” x “Emporio Armani” ad for a IMVU base magazine. Over the years we’ve seen how the fashion world has evolved from the bare look (no tattoos, to very little [if any] facial hair) to embracing tattoos and beards. So I thought I’d show that in a little 3d illustration.
without one direction, I don't think I'd be alive right now
chronic illness, depression, and anxiety go hand in hand, and I already was struggling with them both, so after getting sick it got much worse. I honestly didn’t really care if I lived; I was in so much physical pain and had no one to talk to that I didn’t see the point.
but because I turned so heavily on these boys to keep me happy, I found someone who, despite the distance and my illnesses, supported me from literally 30 seconds into first meeting. because of her, I started getting into group chats, since online friendships are easier when you’re mainly bedridden. this was one of the best decisions I could have made, now I don’t feel so alone even on days where I don’t have the energy to talk.
I’m still sick, I probably will be for the rest of my life; but because of one direction I’ve actually started to want to live through this. before I was held back by fear of the unknown, and though I still don’t know if I’ll be able to work, or go to college, or anything, I know I’ll be okay.
somehow the past 6 years growing up with these 5 boys has made me feel okay with what’s to come. I’ll never be able to repay them for that.
