So I know a lot of you were wondering what the purpose of the social experiment that I held yesterday.
Well, the answer is pretty simple, I mean, don't we have to remind ourselves that we're important once and a while, even if we feel hella lonely? When I feel depressed and lonely I have to remind myself that I have over 2k watchers, that's 2k people who looked at my page and said " Hey, I like these persons oc/art, I'm gonna stick around for more ". When the world presents some problems and you don't know what to do, I can be there to give you a leg up .... but really I think you'll be okay if you chin up and remind yourself how loved you are. I mean, after all , if you don't remind yourself who will?
Dog Racing IndustrySo today in animal studies we had to watch a video on the dog racing industry and how they use live bait which has been outlawed, I only watched about 5 minutes of it. I started crying when I saw a rabbit gasping for air after being mauled. I didn't watch the rest of it. I sat in the bathroom for a bit balling my eyes out for what I saw. The abuse the piglets, possums and rabbits suffered. I was highly embarrassed at how soft I was but the video completely dulled my mood, I knew this was happening but I never wanted to lay eyes on it. I am still very upset about what I saw and struggling to ignore it. I know there are worse abuse industries out there (ie: Pelt factories etc)Dog Racing Industry2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I am sharing this with you to show the cruelty, don't watch it if you don't want to. I couldn't watch it. I sat in the hall outside my class room and listened and I was still in tears just listening to the cruelty. The dogs are not to blame, it's the rotten humans and industry.

all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
oh, I believe in yesterday.
Yesterday. That was the last day I had to work on that damn assignment for work that was due today.
Shit, I thought. Work.
Without hesitating, I rolled off my bed, rushing to my closet to quickly throw something on. I stopped for a moment, looking down at the studded high heels that were attached to my feet.
Jesus, was I wearing these all night? I thought to myself, as I flung the heels off as fast as I could. I quickly grabbed a wrinkled shirt off the floor, throwing it over me. I pulled the shirt down over my head, the light from the window stinging my eyes and starting the raging headache I'd most likely be having for the rest of the day. Bright lights and a night full of drinking didn't mix.
I threw on some pants that I found crumpled up in my bed sheets and grabbed my art portfolio (witch probably weighed about 10 pounds now) and ran out of my bed
