I’m not an artist and I jizzed myself.
If you get this for an artist, it’s pretty much a guarantee you’ll get laid that night.

WHENEVER YOU SEE THIS POST ON YOUR DASH, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WRITE ONE SENTENCE FOR YOUR CURRENT PROJECT.
Just one sentence. Stop blogging for one minute and write a single sentence. It could be dialogue, it could be a nice description of scenery, it could be a metaphor, I don’t care. The point is, do it. Then, when you finish, you can get back to blogging.
If this gets viral, you might just have your novel finished by next Tuesday.
OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS ACTUALLY GOT ME WRITING. Everyone just keep reblogging this for me forever, ok? Ok.

Scarlett’s stunt trainning for her role as Black Widow in Iron Man2
“Scarlett hadn’t really done an action role.And she assured me that she would work as hard as she needed to both get in sharp and do her stunts and learn all that stuff.She spent hours and hours and hours for months.By far the most dedicated actor when it came to stunt work and the physical work.” - Jon Favreau:Director&co-star
and they have the gall to ask her about her diet

•go to the bathroom to escape
•feel very uncomfortable without a phone or some other crutch
•dwell on a small awkward moment for much longer than necessary
•never go to any social event without a person that makes you feel comfortable
•follow said person way too…
ok, so, I have a few of these things, but not all. does that mean I probably have social anxiety?
So. I had to get home before I posted this. But basically … maybe so, maybe not. Symptoms don’t make a disease, or necessarily that disease. Here’s a summary blurb from Wikipedia:
Extreme, persistent and disabling social anxiety may be diagnosed as social anxiety disorder. The experience is commonly described as having physiological components (e.g., sweating, blushing), cognitive/perceptual components (e.g., belief that one may be judged negatively or looking for signs of disapproval), and behavioral components (e.g. avoiding a situation).
The essence of social anxiety has been said to be an irrational or unreasonable expectation of negative evaluation by others.
There’s two important bits here, one which is covered in the blurb and one that isn’t. The physiological components is the first bit. I know personally, when I start having anxiety attacks, I start to sweat through my clothing, I get nauseous, and my heart rate speeds up a lot. Sometimes I start to feel dizzy or like my lungs are being constricted. During the worst of my anxiety, my hands would shake so hard I couldn’t do a whole lot with them, and my vision would get so blurry and flickering that I couldn’t see well or read.
As far as I know, other than blushing and maybe some mild sweating, shy people don’t get extreme physical reactions to their feelings.
The second aspect is that to be considered a disorder, it must substantially impact your life for a continued span of time. Basically, it has to keep you from doing the sort of basic things that most people can do without issue. For example, I used to subsist on basically just smoothies because 1) I felt too nervous at the grocery store to go often and, 2) My anxiety made me so nauseous that I couldn’t eat solid food sometimes.
Also, it’s irrational to the point of being a disorder. For me, it manifests such that I do not feel secure in my relationships with ANYONE. Even best friend, who I have been very close to since I was 17, who has seen me at the lowest point I have ever been at in my entire life. I am still constantly worried that he is going to abandon me for some reason or another. And I don’t just worry — I consciously modify my behavior because of this notion. Even around him, I never fully relax.
However, this should all be taken with the HUGE grain of salt that I am NOT a doctor. Just someone who has been in and out of different treatments since I was 15, so I’m decently versed on this. (And if someone knows more than me, please call me out on any incorrect information.)
A fairly reliable test (afaik) is located here. It’s the one I used to finally “prove” to myself that this was a problem. You might look at that and, based on the results, talk to a doctor or trusted counselor.
The Liebowitz test is ‘the’ test, and is the one a clinician would start with, so you’re good. :) this post made me proud.
Ok, coming from you? That is high praise indeed. I had to squirm a little with happy.Source: high-energy-introvert
The commenters sometimes try to relate their own stories of disablement–always temporary–to what they think I might be experiencing. On a walk through a popular hiking trail with my partner and in-laws, an older man walked past our group with his wife–then gleefully turned around, walked back towards me and my mother-in-law, and, without regard to the fact that the two of us were in the middle of a conversation that did not include him, began to bombard me with information about a question I had not asked: “So, is that thing [the cane] permanent? I had crutches and then a cane after I had my knee replaced, and I saw you and just had to ask if yours is permanent–”
On public space, gender, and entitled questions about disability and assistive devices.
One of the things I value most about Tumblr is how it’s making me more aware of disability issues and ablism. I’m not proud to say that I never thought much about it, since I’m fortunate to have little physically wrong with me, other than mild asthma.
I’m glad that’s changing. I appreciate the people who have opened my eyes to my own privilege and the discrimination I’ve contributed to. You have my solidarity, and I’m working to make sure that’s a worthwhile offer.
Also holy crap people need to stop being so shitty.Source: annaham
