Hey everyone. Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately. :(
So yeah, here’s a quick update. I’ve been really into digital art lately so i thought I’d do Rhett and Link. I’m so hooked on their show, Good Mythical Morning. You should check it out, they’re friggin’ amazing! So yeah, took me a while to draw this, I’d say 14 hours combined. I really hope they’d see this :)
This is actually one of my favorite books. Perks of Being A Wallflower is a novel that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up in a way that at times seems agonizingly palpable. One minute, you’re a boy closing your eyes and kissing the wrong girl too soon, the next you’re eagerly puckering up only to discover you’re kissing the right girl way too late.
Charlie, in the book, is a very peculiar, young lad. He writes letters to an unspecified friend, talking about his troubled past. Charlie is bright and academically engaged but he’s also shy, and hopeless at making friends (There is no mistaking the “wallflower” of the title). But everything changed when he met Sam and Patrick. They introduce him to a world of parties, girls and fun. Suddenly, Charlie is a boy with friends, eagerly facing up to a life of infinite possibilities.
We live in a world where loosing your phone is more dramatic than loosing your virginity. There’s no way you can please everyone. If you’re fat, they call you obese. If you’re skinny, they call you anorexic. If you’re friendly, they call you fake. If you’re quiet, they call you rude. There’s no winning. They tell you to be yourself, then judge you the moment you turn around. Yep, that’s society alright. People are way to concerned about other people’s idea of what’s “pretty”. Teenagers today are getting insecure and depressed because they are unable to attain society’s idea of beauty. They will always think they are too skinny, too fat, to short, too tall.. Too this, too that. And in result they end up hating themselves. Everyone just wants to feel accepted, they want to feel loved. Unfortunately, our society sends a huge message: unless you are good looking, you don’t matter as much. And with that, people just end up hating themselves even more. How can you expect society to love you when you can’t even learn to love yourself? Society taught us to hate ourselves because loving yourself is considered as conceited. That’s the most tragic thing about society for me. We are ashamed of hating ourselves and ashamed of thinking highly of ourselves, so as a result, we all brainwash ourselves into mediocrity.
