YES i will be, don’t you worry LMAO i’ve been so bleh about my hair recently and i’m so excited YOU DONT EVEN KNOW. i will take a lot of pictures and post them here and on instagram and on twitter probably
gahhh thank you so much for sticking with me all of these years babe! i’m really honored and ugh you’re so sweet. i love you too cutie :)
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
i think it’s all really sad and unfortunate :( sulli is one of my favorite f(x) members and i love her to death and it’s been so sad to see her struggling with illness as well as the horrible things that people have been saying in general and it just sucks a lot. so when i heard about this, i thought it was totally understandable and honestly pretty necessary. i think she needs to have time off and i’m glad she’s been able to do that. but that doesn’t make it suck any less. i love f(x) so much and it’s no secret that sm treats them pretty much like complete trash a lot of the time and doesn’t give them the focus or the promotion they deserve. i also think that it’s really horrible that sulli was receiving as many horrible comments as she was. people have been really horrific towards her. that being said, it seems as well that her health in general hasn’t been good so i hope that this time away from everything will help in general, with both her physical and mental state. and i wish that people would stop knocking the mental pressure and exhaustion that can befall a person in this position. she’s been in this industry as a trainee and etc. for so damn long, she was just a kid and yes there are other idols who have been in the industry the same or a comparable amount of time as children and they cope with these things but you just cannot compare them. people’s mental states are highly varied and some people are much more susceptible to feeling negatively/becoming ill based on this sort of pressure than others. by devaluing the pressure it put on her, you are effectively devaluing anyone who can’t handle certain things because of mental strain. everyone can handle different levels of things and it really all depends. that being said i do think it’s also physical. i am disgusted by the pregnancy comments though. overall i really hope that she gets the time and care that she needs and deserves to feel better about all of this, as a lot more people in this industry and in general need. because as a world we need to focus on mental and physical health of all people. and i also hope that this won’t be the end of f(x) because i adore them and want to see them go on for this. but if it does and if they break off as solo artists, i will totally understand that and i just hope the best for all of them because they are all amazing
