gallesa / art au — teresa agnes & her passion for art has grown deeper over the years. she has always felt a greater connection with the canvas & colors where she let all her sadness slip away. even if it was just for a little bit.

she dedicated most of her free time to the drawings & paintings laying on the walls around her house & even on the ones that were specially requested by the various schools she has attended to. for such works of art, she received immense prestige & value from many important artists. she even got the chance to win quite the awards & expositions due to her creative gift.

in the path back home from an exhausting school day, teresa concluded that she would rather clean her cloudy mind off the problems going on at home & spend some of that time giving an empty wall on the backs of an abandoned building a big smile. she took off the brushes, the palette & the gouaches from her bag & allowed her head to cleanse as she began to invest on her most recent project.

as the sun died down & teresa got lost in her touches, a secluded boy made his way out of school & back home, where he would have to deal with his own problems. this boy was never one to be very sociable or friendly, in fact, he rarely ever talked. most of the time he just scowled at everything & everyone for no reason. well, everyone except for the mysterious artist he found painting the walls. even with his headphones ones, he actually did lift up his eyes to contemplate the painting & the girl’s beauty.

every afternoon, he would return there to watch her paint. something he surprisingly found to bring him much unexpected joy. until one day, they accidentally meet each other & learn how to cope together when she offers him one of her brushes & asks him if he wants to finish that piece of art by her side.

“are you ready?” 

in 2530, humans have changed. but not all of them. a select few evolved past what had been previously thought impossible. they had powers, could control the elements, control space and time, control humans

“i don’t know.”

frightened, the humans who’d stayed the same sought them out, sought to eradicate them, and if they couldn’t, then to confine them, keep them from ever rising up, keep them quiet and frightened and below the ones who hadn’t changed. dangerous, too dangerous. 

“you don’t think it’s time yet?”

at first, the mutants kept silent. they had non-mutant friends and family and didn’t want to stand out. they kept their powers quiet and never used them, for fear the government would take them away. but take them away they did, and they forced them out of their homes and into camps and research facilities and they hurt the mutants, tortured them, killed them. and it was okay, because they weren’t mutants. they weren’t monsters. the mutants were the monsters. 

jimin shakes his head and opens his palm, letting a flame rise up slowly, glowing yellow in the night.

but there would come a time when those who could control the elements, control space and time, control humans would decide that they wanted control of at least themselves. and if they had to control the elements, control space and time, control humans, if they had to fight back, then fight they would. 

“no,” jimin says. “i think it’s time.”

I'm dedicated to becoming a physician, but zomg, these statistics of burn-out and jadedness are frightening as hell. How do you persevere through the negativity?

To combat burnout, try the following:

  • Take vacation. Spread it out throughout the year so you have things to look forward to. 
  • Take the advice you give to your patients. Exercise, eat right, and get a hobby to help yourself relax.
  • Make sleep a priority.
  • Take breaks during the workday. Sometimes this is impossible, but if your productivity is crap, try to take a little break. Make some tea. Get a cookie. Walk outside. It really helps.
  • Get some sunshine. I always feel better when I’ve had a chance to get outside for a while. 
  • Meditate or pray or both. Try breathing exercises or yoga to help focus and relax yourself.
  • Think on why you’re doing this job in the first place. Remind yourself what you love about it. 
  • Give back. Volunteer. You’d be surprised how much better you feel about doing a job for free than doing it for money. 
  • Ask for help when you need it, and don’t delay. When burnout starts to set in, talk to someone about it and try to take some time off. 

I think the big thing to remember is that these are not “sometimes” principles. They’re “all the time” principles. That’s what prevents you from getting burned out. Now with residency schedules being what they are, it can be hard to do all of these things. But taking just a few minutes every day to relax and refocus can do a world of good. 

i wonder if like

instead of finding new blogs to follow to actually have more than 45 people on my dash (even if they post stuff that gets me in a mood)

i should probably stop looking

and let that motivate me to go on tumblr less often like a normal person~

Joseph Lindon Smith was a New England painter who dedicated most of his career to creating meticulous reproductions of the art of ancient civilizations for educational purposes. We’ve added some materials to smithsoniantranscriptioncenter from his papers including a diary describing his travels in Egypt in 1906-07. Have at it, #volunpeers!

anonymous asked:

Reading your recent asks I've realised how much the writers have left open and not explained! I've just re watched the season 3 finale and Toby says that red coat is the one in charge..I know that abc family said they didn't want red coat to be A, so are we suppose to ignore all clues about red coat? Sorry if this didn't make sense, but this show is confusing the f out of me🙉

Now see this is the biggest problem I have with the show -

I was the most dedicated fan when I thought that the writers had their endgame sorted out from the start. I assumed that each time they got renewed for an extra season they would put in some side stories but still give clues to the final endgame. But now that the years have passed and little things have come out like: They weren’t sure about making Alison have a twin.The redcoats storyline was kinda changed. That Ezra was bad and then good. That they were choosing from a few potential characters for the S5 reveal…..I have lost faith. I hope that it all comes together in the end and they are working on some master stroke. But the more mismatched reveal’s that keep happening the more frightened I am that the series ending will be full of plot holes.

Heaps of things on the show could have had awesome meaning but they got explained away as an afterthought with a crappy explanation. Like do they really expect us to believe:

  • Toby’s tatoo was to commemorate being sent away to juvie away from Jenna. Wouldn’t it have been better if it commemorated Bethany or Alison or someone else locked up in Radley getting free’d.
  • Or that Mona’s sole motivation for torturing the four girls was that they stole Hanna, even though it was her -A messages that drove the 4 girls back together and drove Hanna away from Mona. Wouldn’t it have been better if Mona was just taking the blame so that head -A would get away. Or even better if Mona was working for Alison and torturing the girls as -A so that they would learn about Alison’s history with -A and start to question her death.
  • That it was all just Mona (+ minions) until Charles stole the game at Radley. Wouldn’t it have been more interesting if Charles was funding Mona all along and that he only found out about extra stuff when Mona was in Radley which made him take on more duties for himself.
  • That Jenna really was blind and then regained her sight and then lost it again. Wouldn’t it have been more interesting if Jenna could see right from the first operation (which she had when Alison was still alive) and she was faking it the whole series meaning she would know heaps more secrets.
  • And dont even get me started on the episode A is for Answers. We are supposed to believe everything Ali told us was truth. Wouldn’t it have been better if Toby had pushed Ian off the belltower to protect Spencer. And imagine if Alison was never buried and Mrs D was protecting Alison when she got rid of “the body”. 

LIKE I SAID BEFORE - I AM STILL HOLDING OUT HOPE THAT BETTER EXPLANATIONS WILL BE WOVEN IN LATER. IMK HAS LIED SOO MANY TIMES TO PROTECT HER STORY, I ONLY HOPE IT IS BECAUSE IT IS ACTUALLY AWESOME AND ALL LINKS TOGETHER. NOT BECAUSE IT IS FULL OF PLOT HOLES AND UNBELIEVABLE SHOCK VALUE CRAP.
