"Fieldwork is like sex: It is often messy. It can be awkward, especially at first. It requires some flexibility. It is at best spontaneous and, no matter what one’s proposal may say, simply cannot be planned. Like sex, even bad sex, fieldwork is always productive: it produces sensations, emotions, intimate knowledge of oneself and others."

I don’t want to be the damn unicorn.
Apologies for the terrible image quality - I’m lacking scanner access at the minute so I had to take these photos on my phone
I was reading hyperbole and a half’s blog entry explaining their experience of depression and decided to make another sketchy comic based on my experiences with anxiety, which is another mental illness I think people tend to misunderstand quite frequently
Hopefully this will be of use to some people - whether they suffer from anxiety themselves or if they just want to know more about it
Right now I’m having a panic attack and my mom (who also suffers from anxiety) told me to “be a big girl and take care of yourself” when I tried to get help.
Someone please help me
legitimately crying at this because yes
#Scorpio will burn the worst of themselves to rise and become greater
god why can’t i live up to my sun sign’s badassery?
