It seriously felt like I was reading a novel for junior high kids. Everyone in extremely dangerous situations has a bunch of time to introduce themselves, even if they’re on the run at the moment.
Main character does NOTHING but be put in situations (and I like to imagine the hundreds of people who die as a result of her being in and escaping from restricted zones) and gets recognized for EVERYTHING - grant money from government, multiple job offers, recognition from several governments, sent to nursing school.
Guys. She simply existed and everyone else did all the hard work.
What an annoying story.
So This is my Gender bend version of Elsa and Jack (OTP lol), Jackie and Elsir : ) Hope you guys like.
So this was a good change of pace for me because I started to do lined drawings. it’s really fun to do more stylist drawings using lines ^_^ and couples are rly fun to draw !
lol sorry for the inconsistent styles XD;; was experimenting mostly @_@;;
ship ship ship ship
This paper is due in 24 hours. I have 6 hours of class and 2 hours of teaching between now and then.
I haven’t started writing, but I at least have the information I’m supposed to analyze and the materials… but. ughghhghg.
I’m going to eat something and come back. Hopefully we can get through most of this paper in the next 6 hours.
"MANY other Disney movies" aren’t relevant. So I’m going to talk about the official Princess movies. I just went through all the endings just to clarify. Happily Ever After implies marriage. If you do not count that, you are being silly. I am counting it because if two people spend the rest of their lives together, they are - in my opinion - married, whether it is legal, spiritual, or otherwise. So here goes:
Snow White: no explicit wedding. Ends with “And they lived Happily Ever After” while chorus sings “wedding bells will ring.” Married.
Cinderella: explicit wedding scene.
Aurora: Again, with the “And they lived Happily Ever After.”
Ariel: explicit wedding scene.
Belle: Happily Ever After is announced by Mrs. Potts.
Jasmine: Definitely engaged at the end. She explicitly states that she chooses Aladdin (in response to the sultan’s permission to choose her husband).
Pocahontas: Was engaged to Kocoum. But I guess you’re right, she doesn’t end up engaged or married at the end. This one is messy.
Mulan: MULAN IS BOSS. No marriage, no engagement - though her family tries to put her through match-making at the beginning.
Tiana: wedding scene in the swamp. Married.
Rapunzel: Eugene/Flynn talks about the proposal in the narration at the end. Engaged/married.
Merida: GOT NOTHING. She rejects every suitor bc who wants those guys?! MERIDA WANTS ADVENTURE!
Anna: Engaged to Hans. Relationship with Kristof at the end.
Elsa: Nada. (but Elsa/Jack Frost OTP, amiright?)
That literally leaves only 3 of 13 Disney “princesses” without any marriage/engagement history. And since Mulan’s got Shang and Merida had 3 suitors, really only Elsa is left without any potential mates or mention/threat of marriage. THAT is different.
So this happened while I was sick and without power this weekend… I’m actually doing an entire ‘Yzma is Best Princess’ series. There are many more in the works (Cinderella, Elza, Jane, Pocahontas, Esmeralda, etc..). Watercolors with the outline done digitally because when I tried to use actual marker it bled like crazy (I’m glad I scanned them before I tried that).
sometimes there are some real diamonds in the yzma tag
Because no one could get their crap together (and also it was really too expensive and no one could afford it.)
So I’ll be staying this summer in the ATL, working (tutoring/planning events) in the Intensive English Program and taking some classes that will hopefully allow me to TEACH in the IEP in the fall.
Bc I got screwed by Spain. I was supposed to be doing practicum and materials design there. But oh well. I can’t take practicum now before the fall, and I’m hoping classroom practices will sub for it.
On the bright side, school is free bc I’m awesome like that, AND I get to take Korean now, though Bin is flipping out over it. “Just bc that person is an MA or Ph.D student, it doesn’t quality them to teach Korean. The class won’t be that good, probably.”
Me: “One class is better than no class…”
Him: “No. Sometimes no class is better than a class.”
Me: *full pug face*
Ok, I’ll just go on not knowing anything about conjugating Korean verbs or understanding anything else I can’t surmise from Korean dramas bc YOU WON’T TEACH ME and language is meant to be spoken D:
Thanks, bf. :c
our downstairs neighbor is the cutest granny that takes care of all the wild cats. Once, I was really mad at Job and threw him out to cool off (he was being too bad.) Normally during this kind of punishment, he just begs at the front door, but this time, when I went to look for him, he was completely gone.
It was snowing.
I knocked on her door to ask if she’d seen him or if she saw a cat like him to let me know, but there he was staring from the middle of her living room. Apparently, he had let himself into her house when she opened the door for the stray kitties (she wanted to give them somewhere warm to sleep bc ice everywhere.)
I got sent home with my cat, some cans of fancy feast, and an invitation to visit anytime.
If one day, I’m old and alone, I will be just like her.
