This week has been really emotionally taxing.

Also rewarding, but VERY TIRING. And then I got a haircut.

This week has barely started, and it already feels like a burden…

Self Portrait as Cecaelia
I’m enamoured with rivers, and I got the chance to visit a lot of bodies of water this summer. It has certainly been a formative experience, and I wanted to express it in art… It’s also been about 3 years since I did my first-ever post for Tumblr, which was a self-portrait as a cecaelia (octo-mermaid). So it seemed appropriate!

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

Kamala Khan + Positive experiences about her culture/religion

This is so important, in my opinion. Because it’d be very easy for Marvel to have a Muslim character rebelling against a traditionalist culture and just putting it as retrograde or closed off… but instead we see Kamala slowly learning the balance between who she wants to be and what she believes in… and we get to see how her believes have shaped her into the hero she now is.

I’d been sold on this series since Issue 1, but that last sequence there just blew me away. It’d have been so easy for Marvel to have made it “common authority figures BAD”, and instead gave everyone human voices. 

This this this.

I’ve recently become fascinated by why tuition costs have risen so much in the last 30 years. I mean…it’s insane, and it doesn’t result in a better education. It turns out, for the most part, that it’s marketing. Universities spending money so that they look better than other universities so they get more and better students so that they can make more money (largely via student loans.)

Student loans mean well, and they’re vital. But the education industry has been economically incentivized by their easy access to raise prices and get more students paying more. Schools that don’t spend lots of money on luxury dorms and top notch sports programs don’t grow…kids don’t go to them because, effectively, it’s the same price for 18 year olds because the loans are available.

We should start a university that costs $3000 per year, but you have to sleep on a cot with six other people in the room. Like Hogwarts.

The fact that higher education is treated as an “industry” is still mind-boggling to my Chinese-Canadian brain…

In the 80’s in China, my parents slept in a dorm with six other people, ate at a cafeteria with a set menu, and got assigned a job when they graduated. The job is no longer available, but the dorms are still Hogwarts-y and their costs are negligible. 

A few months ago, I graduated alongside many part-time students, mature students, and students raising families. It helped that my school was in a major urban centre whose population doesn’t half every summer.

I’m terrified that Canadian higher education institutions are becoming more like American ones, commercialized and hopeless…

A couple WIPs, including a test run of emilyonthewall's Lonely Mountain scarf.

Oh, this looks really great!!! As a (recovering) Maple Leafs fan, I gotta say, those colours are pretty rad <3

Do you think Teddy (Hulkling) will become the new Captain Marvel someday? If it did happen (and is first announced at SDCC), what would you first reaction be?

Probably the same reaction I would give to anything involving the words “Hulking” and “Marvel” : SHAPESHIFTER CLUBBBB!!!!

Sorry for delay in response, dear frostbite883, I’ve been outta the country sans ‘Webs!
