Corinna | late 20s | District Capitol |

General enthusiasms: history, geography, languages, media of all sorts, education, food, friendship, justice, and hard-earned optimism.

Specific enthusiasms: old maps, writing stories, cupcakes, multiple flavors of both Sherlock Holmes and Les Miserables, Welcome to Night Vale, Classic Who, White Collar, Graceland, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Lord of the Rings, Moomintroll, Disney films, Nickelodeon, American Girl dolls, the 20th century, cities, ancient Rome, classical mythology, middle school pedagogy, Finnish and Scandinavian cultures, sapphism through the ages, pictures of adorable animals and people. These are likely to show up on this blog at any given moment, as is anything else to which I've currently taken a fancy.

Periodically blogging about mental health issues under the tag "brain stuff."

Hats worn: teacher, INTP, Capricorn, Ravenclaw, waterbender, urban hobbit. Sun sign of John Watson with a moon sign of Sherlock Holmes lurking underneath. True 1790s Kid, tongue placed firmly in cheek.

My finished drawing from the last day of figure drawing class! It’s a sort of pose I haven’t done before, so it was good practice.. I also feel like I did a better job with contrast this time, too.

Reblogging for the heck of it.

Date a boy who adores you. Date a boy who paints you. Date a boy who paints nothing but you, all the time, every day. Date a boy who will probably stop painting if you break up with him. Date a boy whose objectification of you is almost compensated for by his tender behavior, but who still begins to grate on your nerves as you slowly realize what it means that you have ceased to age. Date a boy who paints. Date Basil Hallward.

Off to art class I go!

It’s the last class of the summer. I should probably take another class. There’s one on gesture drawing that actually sounds up my alley? I guess we’ll see. It’d probably interfere with Finnish so that’s a tough call.

In a world full of the possessions of others, where the indigent have nothing to call their own, they are obviously reduced to perish of hunger. Now, since they derive nothing but disadvantage from society, are they obliged to respect its laws? Doubtless, no! If society abandons them, they re-enter the state of nature, and when they reclaim by force those rights which they could only alienate in order to ensure for themselves greater advantages, all authority that opposes them is tyrannical, and the judge who condemns them to death is no better than a cowardly assassin.

i have been seeing a lot of different links for different places to donate for bail and legal fees, but i haven’t been able to find anything on whether or not the funds have actually been going towards helping out the people of ferguson so

if you know of any more please add and spread them and if in doubt remember to google first

Feed the Students of Ferguson ends today.

"But, like, having female assassins and people of color in a game about the French Revolution just isn’t very historically accurate.

I’m also itching to draw more FREV and/or Mis comics, or maybe just artwork in general? I don’t know. It’s time to contribute something again.

I’d ask for suggestions but when I do that I usually end up wanting to draw the opposite of what people suggest so that’s a problem.
