Mate i wanted to know, what do you feel going so high in this journey? I mean how do you feel getting into big gigs after all these years

When I was in highschool and started I wasn’t making much and I also looked at those big events thinking I would never be there.. but was set on not giving up. The moral of it all is never stop and don’t let a failure or drop out in college demotivate you from the goals.. in fact it should make your determination stronger.

I went in education for what I already loved doing and when I did things my own way. The drop out for me signaled this wasn’t the right path to it for me and that laser is “all and everything” it made me work harder then ever and I grew rapidly to become some of the best. My show in dubai won the largest award I could win in my industry yet I feel like I still got so much to learn.

I would never envision I’d be making lasershow history throughout some pieces of my years so far as well, yet I have proving what laser graphics can do and what can be done to improve them.

The journey also gave me more financial security.. being able to support family members who haven’t been so lucky yet and being able to support a GF/BF would I ever get one!

That and it allows me to support the childhood dreams I had before laser when I wanted to become a mechanical engineer.. while the education isn’t available for me since I wasn’t good at all forms of math.. I can finance those projects whilst supporting artists I enjoy.

If Jane Austen wrote Star Trek:

Spock, the first officer whose advice was always effectual, possessed a strength of understanding, and coolness of judgement, which qualified him to be the counselor of the ship’s captain, and enabled him frequently to counteract, to the advantage of them all, that eagerness of mind in Captain Kirk which must generally have lead to imprudence. Spock had an excellent heart, positioned somewhere near his kidneys; his feelings were strong, but he knew how to govern them: it was a knowledge which his captain had yet to learn, and which one of his fellow crew members had resolved never to learn.

Dr. Leonard McCoy’s abilities were, in many respects, equal to Spock’s. He was sensible and clever; but eager in every thing; his sorrows, his joys, could have no moderation. He was generous, amiably cynical, interesting: he was everything but logical.

I’m seeing this problem a lot right now, both in support pages for mental illness, in people, and online, especially on tumblr.

Y'all.

Depression and anxiety are actual problems that are being diagnosed more and more, you can feel alone and scared and isolated. But they are not the only mental illness out there. Depression and anxiety are still stigmatized and the people who have them are still called lazy and liars when it interferes with their daily lives. But it’s also rapidly becoming more socially acceptable to have them. A character or person in the media with anxiety or depression is seen a quirky and unique and someone to be saved with the right person comes along to show them the world and give them a meaning to live. A person with bipolar or schizophrenia or a personality disorder or any other ‘scary’ and misunderstood mental illness is a serial killer and that is clearly why they are commiting horrible acts. Not because they’re terrible human beings, but because they’re ‘dangerously mentally ill’ and can’t help themselves.

You wanna know what would help that problem? Actual education about the illnesses and representation. I’m sick of the focus on commonly accepted mental illnesses and not the ones that are also common and stigmatized. And I’m really sick of being treated like an outcast and criminal because people don’t understand that bipolar ≠ dangerous. More people are becoming educated on such disorders but it’s still a problem. I shouldn’t have to be given 'The Talk’ by my mother when a mass shooting occurs or a bombing takes place about how 'I need to control my emotions and not do something horrible to anyone because of your illness.’

You cannot post things like 'people with depression are v v v cute uwu’ and create lists on how to take care of themselves during a panic attack and then tell people that everyone with Borderline personality disorder is automatically abusive and should be avoided at all costs. You can support anxiety but you cannot compare people with schizophrenia to 'psychos that need to be medicated so they aren’t a danger to society.’ You can’t call people with DID liars about what they experience and ignore their symptoms because you consider it as made up for attention. That’s not how mental illness positivity works.

Mental illnesses that are considered scary and rarer than they are, are being swept under the rug and it isn’t helping it become accepted. It’s hurting the people that don’t see themselves represented and feel so ashamed of themselves that they would rather suffer through years of symptoms than seek help because they believe they will be ridiculed and cast out of their families and cultures. Advocate for mental illness, but make sure you advocate for ALL mental illness, even the ones that aren’t considered 'popular.’

  • Brain: "...had never been less interested in Quidditch"
  • Me: focus, damn it. now, where was I? oh yes-
  • Brain: "HE WAS RAPIDLY BECOMING OBSESSED WITH DRACO MALFOY"
  • Me: but-
  • Brain: shush! you're enjoying this!
  • Me: ...
  • Me: yes I am.
