I’m sooo sorry for never getting back to you ooh my gosh. That’s a perspective I hadn’t considered! Thank you, it ~expanded my horizons~
i can’t reply to asks (i s2g) so let me copy this
anonymous asked: ooooooh post-80s experimental performance and electronic art!!!!!! you should blog about that more!!! (i mean if you want to. but it would make me happy)
i actually follow people that are way smarter than me on this stuff so i always feel too embarrassed to say much but for me my primary interest is the documentation and archiving of works that don’t easily lend themselves to being stored. example: a painting is pretty easy to keep track of. you have the physical painting and you can take photographs to document it and make prints etc. but what about a piece of art written on a software that only works on a specific generation of a specific computer manufacturer? how do you store that, and how do you bring it back out to re-present it in a gallery?
i’m currently in the process of bulking up my art history knowledge (i’m currently studying proto-renaissance) but i miss academic/informative blogging and i’m going to try to do it more. if you have any specific things you’d like to me talk about or conversations you’d like to have, i’d be thrilled to host that!
my apologies friend i typed that one way and then restructured what i was saying and did not edit it because it would not be a post of mine if i didn’t make a least one major embarrassing mistake (it took me four tries to spell embarrassing)
this makes it sound like hes some sort of spy or something hes a friend and he does wild shit for fun i dont know
here’s my selfie tag
i’m really glad! i hope that your journey goes well. a smiley face seems kind of weird here but imagine me smiling in a friendly manner
i don’t know if you even can know that you’re “really” depressed because that “really” is very hard to stick a definition to. i would say that if you are experiencing longer-term effects (that is, it’s not because of a bad day or week) or if using the term “depression” will get you to help that you need, that “counts.” i think i’ve talked in the past how access to resources via labels is something that i am a big supporter of — it doesn’t actually matter to me if you’re “really” depressed, if saying “i have depression” is what gets you to the therapy/medication/other resources that help you, that’s.. really what i consider the word to be there for. if you feel depressed and it’s frequent/severe/etc enough for you to consider it to be something that plays a role in your life, that’s depression. i hope this helped and i hope that you find whatever you need re: help with it. if you need anything let me know!
yes alhamdulillah its been over a year now and i cannot say subhanallah enough but i have talked fairly extensively about my decision to not wear a scarf you should find the posts in the tag i tagged this post with
god i have no idea im so bad at dates i think its been over a month ~~* but weve known each other for like two years and i was in love with her already for like half that time so
psst (lizz if this isnt ok lmk :*)
u know i used to have a lot of articles on hand and i cannot find ANY of them right now this is ridiculous here is one though! i am going to make this public so if anyone has any resources they can direct them to me/you but let me try to give you some basics:
in islam, hijab/covering/etc is a personal thing. women don’t wear it to “protect” men from their lusts, they wear it for themselves and god. the way it was explained to me, modesty overall is important in islam, so dressing not to show off our bodies or our wealth etc is an extension of that. it’s important to note that some women are forced! but many women also make this decision for themselves and discounting their agency is oppressive. many women consider it an independent religious obligation free from outside factors. i’m so rusty this is a terrible explanation but the key thing here is that it needs to be a choice. taking away something many women consider important to their faith and/or their self-identities against their will is not actually liberating! euugh yeah i’m really sorry!!
hi lizz!! i hope u are doing well
i have not! is there anything you’d suggest?
im not entirely sure i know what this means but im sure that i adore it. im the ultimate ice boy princess
