growing up as a gifted and talented student made me ridiculously ashamed of being wrong. like being wrong about the littlest things makes me want to cry and hate myself and i turn back into the big baby i actually am.
FINALLY SOMEONE PUT THIS INTO WORDS FOR ME
We had to create a self portrait for class that didn’t include our physical selves… I chose to really make use of self reflection with this project.
I wanted to make use of these jars and display my experiences dealing with both depression (the black bottle) and anxiety (the cracked bottle), however keep them slightly out of focus- I may still be dealing with these issues, they may still affect my life daily but they are no longer at the forefront of my life, I am in recovery and I am winning.
Then there’s the jar with glitter, I had different pictures where all three jars were standing up in order and all bottled up, but it felt wrong. I decided to knock this one over and have the contents spill out, though I still experience the downfalls of depression and anxiety, it no longer inhibits me from being brave and showing my true colours and sharing my love for the world and everyone around me- I am optimistic, I am radiant, I am free.
wow… this has 2000 notes O_O
It has 2,000 notes because it’s inspiring and deep.
The Never Ending Road.
In Corona, California there once was a road known by most of the older locals as the never ending road. Specifically, the road’s true name was Lester Road.
However, 70 years ago, Lester Road was an unlit road that people claimed became a never ending road when driven at night. The people who made such a drive were never seen or heard from again.The legend became so well-known that people refused to even drive Lester Road during the day.
Perpetuation of the legend convinced local law enforcement to investigate around the 1960’s. Lester Road took a sharp left turn at its end, and there were no guard rails. Beyond the curve lay a canyon, and on the other side of the canyon was another road that lined up so well with Lester Road that when viewed from the correct angle, especially at night, the canyon vanished from sight, and the road seemed to continue on up and over the hill on the other side of the canyon. Upon investigation of the canyon, dozens of cars were found, fallen to their doom, with the decomposing bodies of the victims still strapped to their seats.
Law enforcement tried to cover up their findings. They closed down Lester road, letting the trees grow where the road once stood and letting the bodies remain in their final resting place.
