Human Feelings as Drugs
It would be really cool to have a movie about this in a world where the government distributes these to people, and at first glance everything is fine, people with depression and antisocial disorder are being instantly treated and that’s great. But then you realize that there are groups of people abusing these drugs underground, like there will be people on happy all the time, people that use hope to delude themselves, or people that drug other people with love, and that true human emotions have been nearly wiped out. Then at the end it’s discovered that the government is using these drugs to control society and manipulate people into becoming soldiers by taking away their empathy and filling them up with trust for the government. So it ends in an uprising led by a resistance group who lead the people to realize that their humanity has been stripped and doesn’t come in a bottle.
Sometimes Tumblr comes up with better movie/book/show premises than the ones being dished out.
Damn. Book or movie i’d pay to have it.
There is a book! Read Intentional Dissonance by Iain S. Thomas.

Another angsty sketch.
Sorry, spoiler alert! I just couldn’t feels

Song - The Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel
In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving,"
But the fighter still remains

Song - Up With The Birds by Coldplay.
The birds they sang, break of day.
"Start again," I heard them say.
It’s so hard to just walk away.
My attempt at tackling the feels and revisiting digital speedpainting.
"Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough."

So I really wanted to preserve my 4,000th post for the 30 day drawing challenge (which I know, was ages ago) but I feel like this sort of has a place in itself.
I turned twenty years old today, and like most birthdays, I don’t feel older, or wiser, or more mature. I feel like me, and that’s how I hope all my birthdays feel like in the future.
But I do want to note how happy I am to spend another year with people I care deeply about and them likewise, how much I can reflect on how I’ve grown over the past year, and what new goals I can set to better myself.
I feel ready to start this new chapter in my life and I want to thank everyone who has ever been involved in it and wanted nothing but push me further in a positive direction. Moreover, I am excited to see what this year will bring — and, for once, I’m realizing that I’m excited to grow. <3
