An apology to like everyone.

oh guys I’m super sorry that I haven’t been on in like a few weeks (read months.) It’s just that I haven’t really been feeling so great, I’ve been really down and not feeling myself and I just can’t put up a façade of feeling great because I would just be lying and it’s just too tiring and I’m tired of having to pretend that I’m feeling good when all I want to do is shrivel up and not exist for a while.

I just feel so empty right now and I can’t do anything to stop it so I apologise for not being on and not talking to anyone because I do love you guys I just can’t pretend to be fine when I’m not because I always have to do that and I just want a break from it for a while.

I’ll be back eventually hopefully at the end of the month or so maybe a bit longer I have exams on and studying is killing me well me pretending to study and ready fanfictions instead, it’s the stress that is killing me. On the bright side I decided that I am not doing advanced higher history next year, hopefully I’ll be doing something that I can actually pass:/  on the other hand I also decided to take higher English, yeah I officially sold my soul to Satan.  hopefully I’ll pass higher Art this year to do advanced higher next year. haha yeah definitely not going to collage next year; although it is a lot closer to home. by that it’s only a 20 minute bus journey rather than an hour one but oh well I’ll be going to uni after next year. 

Oh wow didn’t mean for my little apology to become a rant about my life gha sorry:/  

but yeah I’m so sorry that I haven’t been on I just fell hollow and nothing is really helping and for those who I speak to and you know who you are I ‘m so sorry I haven’t been I care for  you so much I just don’t want to be pretending that I feel super amazing when I feel like crap. 

I love you guys your my family, and I’ll be back soon hopefully:)

Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014

Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.

I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.

Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.

What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.

Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.
