Marla’s philosophy of life is that she might die at any moment. The tragedy, she said, was that she didn’t.

Constantly talking isn’t necessarily communicating.

You’re the voice I hear inside my head, The reason that I’m singing, I need to find you, I gotta find you
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
This is literally so inspirational to me right now.
I needed this really badly right now.
dear gods would you STOP with this shit? sure, doing what you love makes you happy, but that’s not always possible because guess what? living costs money. you claim it doesn’t cost much, but for some it’s a huge struggle to afford the rent and food every month, and if they just quit whatever job is helping them scrape by, in order to do what they love, they would no longer be able to afford life. ‘love knitting? own a yarn shop’ wow do you know how much it costs to set up a business? do you know how hard it is to keep that business running? people need food and shelter and those things cost money. money that you can’t always get from doing what you love. it’s great if you can afford to do what you love as a job, and it’s great that for you it doesn’t take much to live comfortably, but it’s not a realistic option for everyone. stop making people feel bad for making the choice to do something they dont enjoy as a profession in order to keep themselves fed and sheltered. goddamn.
A couple of things:
- Money doesn’t buy you happiness, but financial security relieves you of some of the worst kind of stress imaginable. Financial security means that you sleep at night.
- Money does enable you to do things that make you happy - go travelling, go to concerts, buy yourself nice things, donate to charity, whatever it is, money helps you to achieve it.
- When the thing you love becomes your job, it immediately becomes seven thousand times less fun. You don’t pay yourself, so your projects are not what you want to be doing, they’re what your customers want you to be doing. If you turn your passion into a job, and a low paid job at that, you will become very unhappy very quickly.
In short, don’t listen to the bullshit ‘follow your dreams at any cost’ attitude. It’s not as easy as people make out, nor is it always the best option. Do what you can, set aside time for you to enjoy your passions outside of work, and above all, try and make the most of whatever you’ve got. Good luck.
I agree. Its a fine balance between the two, and very few are able to manage it. If you are able to live off your dreams, hats off to you!! Its very tough and brave and takes loads of efforts. And if you have managed to make a financial base and parallely follow your dreams, even better!!
Hades appreciation post.
He is kind of one of my favorite Disney villains.
He’s so sassy! I love it!
He’s one of the reasons why I point out this movie is hilarious.
YES, I KNOW IT’S NOT THE ORIGINAL FRICKIN’ MYTH. But it can still be good/funny for what it is.
“Mr. Zeus. Mr. High-and-Mighty. Mr. Hey-You-Get-Off-of-My-Cloud.”
Fun Fact: They rewrote most of the dialogue for the part after James Woods auditioned. Many of the oneliners were improvised. The top gif was his greeting to the writers when they were first introduced.
This is true! Everyone they were auditioning for the part were acting all large and scary and “I AM HADES, LORD OF THE UNDERWOOORRRLLLLD” and James Woods was like “fuck it” and walked into the room like “Name is Hades. Lord of the dead. Hi, how ya doin’?”
AND THEY LOVED IT.
James Woods has told Disney he will always reprise this role whenever it arises. He loves the character that much. It’s him in Kingdom Hearts. It’s him in House of Mouse. And he will never give up this role.
Disney!Hades and Nintendo!Hades rlly need to meet up
