School just really sucks cause they take this wonderful concept of learning and discovering new things and just completely ruin it with the atmosphere of judgement and suppression of creativity and strict deadlines and basing your intelligence on a letter and wow you ruined it nice job
I bet only a few of you know and you’re probably not interested but this is a scene from grey’s anatomy, I think it’s probably one of the saddest. It was valentine’s day and there’s this patient who had been with his girlfriend for 8 years, he had an accident and his girlfriend was so angry and she wouldn’t stop complaining about how they’ve been together for 8 years and he still hasn’t proposed. Every valentine’s day he gives her a tiny velvet box and whens he opens it it’s always some kind of jewerly but not an engagement ring, and that valentine’s day he gave her a necklace but she didn’t open it because she was so mad and she even called it a “cheap ass necklace”, so the patient dies and when the doctor goes to pick up his stuff to give it to his girlfriend she opens the necklace and that’s what she finds
Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
“This series is based on the drawings made by snails on the wet sand in the inter-tidal zone. They are part of an ongoing series of works involving collaboration between the snails and me. I choreograph the snails’ starting positions, and then photograph the marks they make over time.
I tend to think of the snail pieces as a metaphor for the order we establish in our lives, and how the element of chance enters in to shape the result -regardless of how much we attempt to structure it.”
