“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important


So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.

that last comment. actually crying.

Well that just proves my parents wrong&#8230;.

It’s amazing finding out that things were never how they were supposed to be. Who your real friends are, or who you can really trust. Wow…

3 weeks and I graduate… I’m not sure where this crazy life of mine will take me, all I know is that no matter what, I will be ready. Whether I fall flat on my ass, or I pass with flying colors. I will take whatever life throws at me. And I will take it like my momma raised me. With my head held high and like any decent Elliott/LaFour Bitch would, with confidence.

In the wise words of my loving Mother <3

I have realized that everything that is going on in my life is just more proof that guys become famous and girls get the bad reputation….

                How can guys be so inconsiderate? I mean honestly, you buy my prom ticket, break up with me, and then expect me to pay you back for it? Really? You must have lost you god forsaken mind. You didn’t have to buy my ticket in the first placed. By the way, next time you want a girlfriend, make sure you pick one that is willing to put up with your shit. Because honestly, if a girl is going to prom with you, she SHOULDN’T have to pay you back for her ticket. It’s not mandated, it’s called respect. Learn what that is.

I knew it would hurt in the end, but I wanted it anyway.

Is it bad that I expected it to happen? Just not this soon. Well all good things have to end eventually. I guess this wasn’t my happy ending… 

I still love you though

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to completely let go of the entire world? Just for one day. To forget about all the pointless drama, school, work, friends, family even yourself. To go through one day and to be able to look at the world with a smile, because you have nothing to worry about. 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to finally figure out everything about that one person. The one who, unbeknownst to him, has your mind completely wrapped around him. He has it to where every little word he says means everything to you. You fall at the sight of him. You wonder constantly about him.

Have you ever wondered if it were possible for life to be as perfect as all the stories and fairy tales make you believe. If true love really lasted forever. If true loves first kiss could break any spell. Or, m personal favorite, that your “prince charming” will sweep you up off your feet, and you will live happily ever after.

It’s amazing how completely different life would be if all of this was possible. If fairly tales existed, if you could actually figure out everything about that one person, and if you really could forget about everything for one day.

I wish!

Empty messages.

Empty words.

Empty feelings.

I miss your voice.

I miss the way you love me.

I miss you.

Please let us be okay…

Got to watch my boyfriend meet his mother for the first time outside of prison in 17 years. It was amazing the smile he had. I’m so glad that I got to be there <3

So there is this guy. And for almost 8 months now, I have had the pleasure of calling him my boyfriend. My family adores him. But what makes this whole relationship even better is the fact that he truly and honestly cares about me. He gives me everything and anything that he possibly can. He sees me for who I really am. And he doesn’t criticize me. He accepts all of my flaws and quirks. He helps me when I need it, and holds me when I cry. I love this boy with everything that I have, And I am so happy that I have him in my life. No one will ever be able to change the way that I feel about him. 

I love you sweetheart
