Robin Thicke - “Defined Lines”
A few students from my university created a Feminist critique of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines through a pretty damn hilarious parody of the video. Hope you all enjoy :-)
the balance has been restored
People just need to accept that the events that happened in my life have changed me and I’m not the same. I can NEVER be the same. Can never be as chatty or chirpy or bright anymore. Maybe things will improve when time heals me, but for now, stop asking if I’m okay.
Every morning, I wake up and think I’m going to start my life all over again. Then I look in the mirror and realize that I can’t.
This beautiful girl is Shiloh Pepin. She was born with Mermaid Syndrome, or Sirenomelia, one of the rarest conditions known to man. This condition means the fetus fails to develop normally below the waist, resulting in a fusion of the lower limbs. She is one of three people who survived this syndrome after birth.
I was reading her story and listened to countless documentaries and interviews with her and about her. I have to say she is the most inspirational girl ever. We live in a world where we are so determined to find right or wrong and judge all the time. We bring ourselves down by focusing on what the outside is “suppose” to be, instead of owning what beauty it is. She didn’t do that. She loved who she was and it pushed her even more in life. This beautiful girl lived life so greatly despite everything. Her smile lit up a room and her energy is just so contagious. Yes, I never got to meet this true beauty but yet she has changed my life. Her great positivity with life and her wide range of dreams pushed me to want to follow my dreams in honor of her. If this Angel could fight for her life and dreams, so can I.
And I post this post today because I want to keep passing this inspiration on in honor of her. Everyday know that you are beautiful and could do anything. Know that no matter how many times people say you can’t (including yourself) Know you can. Push for life. Be positive even when the storm clouds are above. Smile even if it seems like you can’t. Love like you have never loved before. Live like you have never lived before. Keep positivity everywhere you go. Life is not bad, just misunderstood. Life is hard but not impossible. Life truly is a beautiful thing.
Shiloh really is a great teacher of life and has given soooo many gifts to the world without even knowing it. If you have never heard of Shiloh, look her story up. Use her inspirational gift to motivate you. She lived ten years after being told she couldn’t live two days. On October 22, 2010, Shiloh died of pneumonia, however, her time on this earth showed great beautiful people exist.
Thank you for having a beautiful Angel like her exist and have a great beautiful life everyone! I love you :)
"I feel like everything’s possible ,I want to have a normal future like everybody else. … It’s hard to decide what I want to be when I grow up. There are so many choices. An actress, or a princess. Anything I want to be."
A diver has a very personal moment of dejection at the bottom of the pool during the 2012 CCCA Swimming and Diving State Championships at East Los Angeles College Swim Stadium on Thursday, April 26, 2012 in Monterey Park, CA. (Photo by Suzanne Tylander © 2012) This particular photo represents an emotional moment rarely caught underwater. This particular diver was expected to win the entire event. The diver knew as soon as he hit the water his form was flawed and that he might have just lost it all. I was fortunate enough to witness this moment as it was unfolding underwater. I captured the sequence of emotion just a split second after he hit the water and began to sink to the bottom with a sense of defeat written in his body language This was the image I chose from the series. I have felt this emotion and disappointment before as many athletes do. My chance to capture it underwater was rare but beautiful. It is a moment no competitive athlete wants to relive but something important that many of us can relate to. It is raw and human and real.
This makes me want to cry
Don’t confuse my personality with my attitude. My personality is who I am. My attitude depends on who you are.
My science teacher wrote this poem when he was in grade 9, which was 1985.
When you read it from a relationship perspective, it means that she didn’t like him, she liked someone else.
When you read it from Science’s perspective, “he” would be the Earth, and it explains how eclipse works.
Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.
