They said it couldn't be done. They said I was crazy. They said I couldn't make memes for a show I wasn't involved in. Well I did. With some help from my lovely roommate @sensualchurro, we did some tag team memeing, tag Memeing if you will I understand none of these but Bria assured me that they make sense 😂
This is a post that's been weighing very heavily in my brain, and honestly I've been back and forth about making it. But then I realized its hurting me .ore trying to keep it a secret than it is to just tell. So here goes: I've decided to Transfer out of Rockford University. I'll be withdrawing at the end of this semester, will be going home and going to community college for a semester, and from there I will be transferring to another school. This wasn't a spur of the moment decision, it's been bouncing around in my head since I was taken off Richard III honestly, but recently there have been things done and said to me by professors and students alike that I do not appreciate, as well as things that have been said to me that I've only now realized make absolutely no sense. I thought I could handle it after last year, but as this semester has gone on I've been finding out that i just can't handle it anymore. It's been taking a toll on me physically and mentally and it gotten to the point where there have been many nights where I didn't want to be here anymore, and didn't want to be a theater major anymore and that feeling hurt more than I can put in to words. It's that, coupled with the fact that the thing that once saved my life when I went through an extremely dark time was now further pushing me back down that road, that I've decided to leave. I'm not making this post to ask for attention or beg for sympathy, I'm doing it solely because I needed to get it out. It's been eating away at me like a parasite, fear gnawing at my stomach over the anxiety of people finding out. And I realised it was hurting me more to keep this bottled up than it would to just be open. And I know this will come to mixed views, some people might see it as good news, some might see it as bad news, and some people just might not care at all. And that's fine. I'm not everyone's favorite person in the department and I accept that. I just felt like I needed to get it off my chest, and to be honest I don't really care what sort of views its met with. I'm doing this for me. I feel like I've been losing my passion for theater, and it hurts too much to keep staying at a place that makes me
Happy Halloween!! And the last day of #rampaigespooktober! Oddly enough I got the most ideas for the "Death" prompt so here goes: Day 31: -"Emily": Corpse Bride Horse (idea from @sublimesings) -"Don't Look Back" based on the myth Orpheus and Eurydice in which Orpheus, a young musician, ve turned into the Undereorkd to rescue Eurydice from death, and manages to get Hades to agree to let her go with him, on the condition that he can't look back to see if she is following him. The scene I draw is when Orpheus looks back to see Eurydice being dragged back to the Underworld -"Until We Meet Again, My Love": King is a horse that died, and his mate is visiting his grave to grieve, where she's unknowingly being watched by the ghost of his love -"Ride of the Valkyries": an old chestnut horse is killed in Battle, and awakes to find a beautiful winged mare standing in front of him, ready to lead him to Valhalla -"Fear the Reaper"- something of a redraw of my Grim Realer horse (idea by @bigg_schtink) -"I Don't Feel So Good": because I'm a bad human being
Tiny bit behind on my #rampaigespooktober Day 27: "Deathbells", I'm really not super happy with how she turned out (especially the Venom looking tongue ugh) but i tried. Day 28: "Vaquero"- drawn in the tack the horse owned by a Spanish conquistador would wear Day 29: "Joey/War Horse" one of my favorite books growing up was Michael Morpurgo's War Horse, a novel about WWI told from the perspective of Joey, a calvary horse just trying to survive the war and return to his master. So I figured since the prompt was war it would be perfect
Getting into the home stretch of #rampaigespooktober!! Day 25: "Fantasia", loosely based on the spring Sprite from The Firebord Suite in Disney's Fantasia 2000, I prefer the original Fantasia to the newer one, but this scene will forever be one of my favorites Day 26: "Kamaji" The Kirin is a peaceful mythological creature from Eastern Asia, meant to symbolize luck, protection, prosperity, good omens, longevity and fertility. Though depictions of them vary, they are generally described as having a dragon-like head, with a mane that flows out and up, beards, and a body like a horse, deer, ox, or in some cultures, giraffes. They have two horns that are more antlers. Though they have been fused with the Western idea of a unicorn, they are 2 different beings. This guy's name is Kamaji for a chracter in Spirited Away (don't @me but I haven't actually seen the movie I picked it off the chracter list I'm a bad weeb I know) Sorry for the rambling, I just find mythology extremely interesting, especially the mythologies that's aren't as explored as Greek or Roman
Continuing with #rampaigespooktober here's Day 24: "Sansa"! So fun fact, I've never seen an episode of Game of Thrones in my life and don't intend to start now so this was done entirely with the help of Google Images. I'm not pleased with the results but eh well
