Some people say I look like this guy by MrLegenDarius
OH MY GOD YES
I had my interview yesterday which went GREAT and now they’ve called me back for a second interview next Tuesday. Ughhh. This is a good sign, but to me, it’s just a reminder of how much more disappointing it will be if I don’t get this job now.
Got another interview for next Wednesday…yeah…
Godfuckingdammit. Look, I have dealt with mosquito bites for all my life. My face, legs, arms, back, feet, etc. But this is the first time I have ever been bit on my fucking boob. Right near the damn nipple. WHY. It’s not like I was prancing around shirtless!
I just need summer to be over.
The bomb is dropped
The kittens sort of soften the blow.
this is the shittiest post ever. please unfollow me if you agree with this post also shame on OP for using cute kittens for this garbage post
not sure what it is exactly that makes this post so shitty? Because it’s promoting actual equality? instead of saying that you can call everyone else shit because you are part of an oppressed party you can say you are equal to them doesn’t exactly sound like a shitty idea to me.
BOOM. So many people on this website need to read this twice, let it sink in and then read it again.
Anyone have work for me?
I am seeking some freelance designer work. Anything and everything pretty much. So if you have friends, family, co-workers, anyone, who is looking to get something designed, I’d really appreciate it if you suggested me for the job. I can do designs for cards, invitations, flyers, posters. I can do illustration work as well. I’m happy to work with whatever budget a person has.
I’m just tired of sitting around waiting to hear back from people and I figured I might as well try and be more aggressive about it. You can find my portfolio at: www.jjeahyun.com
I really appreciate this. Thanks!

i see lucy as a racist film that plays on negative stereotypes while hiding behind the cover of (white) feminism.
all this film has done is switch out the white man for a white woman. it’s still a film about a white person getting violated by the evil poc, then gaining power and wiping them out.
here’s 2 of my favourite scenes from the trailer:
from top to left to right:
KEEP CLEAN 保持清潔，APPLE 蘋果，ONION 洋蔥，GRAPE 葡萄，
CHAIR 椅子EDIT: sorry it says ORANGE 橘子，TOMATO 番茄
traditional chinese is an actual written language used by millions of people, not symbols to be thrown around at the whim of set designers because they look cool and idk, serves to create a menacing asian atmosphere. this is so disrespectful, and made even worse by the fact that this film in set it taipei, taiwan where the official written language is traditional chinese.
it doesn’t matter that this film caters to a primarily “white” audience who won’t be able to read it, the language and culture of taiwan isn’t something for you to twist and use as you deem fit because it’s “exotic.”
lucy shoots a guy for not being able to speak english.
she l i t e r a l l y shoots this taiwanese taxi driver, in taiwan for not being able to speak english. she’s in taipei and she’s shooting people as they are of no use to her because they don’t speak english.
just think about the sort of message that’s sending out. she’s not being “bad-ass strong female character who takes no shit,” she’s saying that english is useful and better. this is the type of harmful ideology that stretches all the way back from when western countries were colonising and forcing their language and customs on other countries.
let me explain with a real life example. i was born in new zealand to two taiwanese parents. i am fluent in english, but mandarin is conversational at best. my friends in taiwan say that i am “so lucky” to speak fluent english, when they are fluent in mandarin and their english level is no worse than my mandarin. they tell me that they want to perfect their english but in the same breath tell me that mandarin isn’t worth perfecting because i have english and that’s “enough”. they also tell me how pretty my white friends are when they see pictures.
this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that they’ve grown up buying into. it honestly hurts and frustrates me that they belittle their own culture like this, honestly believing that the western world is superior. this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that this film (hopefully unintentionally) promotes: white people are better and will save the day.
if they wanted to film a movie about a white women getting back at those who had violated her, why not film it in a western country? if they wanted to film it in taiwan, why not find an asian lead actress?
i do agree that we need more women protagonists in action/superhero movies, but not like this. its not okay that the female lead needs to be kidnapped and have her body cut open without her consent in order to gain her powers, and those said those powers do not make any of this racist bullshit okay.
i am just so tired and angry of poc always being brushed off to the side as either props or villains in mainstream media.
as a poc, it’s so frustrating to see that the of the standard of beauty still white women when we live in multi-cultural societies and a diverse world.
feminism is about equality. a film in which poc are presented as evil and inferior before being killed off by a superior white woman does not promote equality.
The problem with people disagreeing with the OP is that they’re defending the film by defending Lucy, the character. As if Lucy was a real person who went through these real things. But she’s not. Every action the character made was decided by the person who wrote the screenplay. An individual, or a group of individuals, collectively decided on all the things that make this movie racist. I’m not saying they did it all on purpose or consciously, but it happened. And it has happened before and it will of course happen again.
Look, I’m torn about this movie. On one hand, I was thrilled that this movie has a female lead. On the other hand, as an Asian person, I was frustrated with the fact that the movie has a white lead in an Asian environment. (Also on this other hand, the fact that this movie’s whole premise really makes no sense).
Anyway, I probably won’t watch it.
