WARNING: LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK. VERY DISTURBING AUDIO ABOVE.

In 1967, a German scientist wanted to figure out why people had nightmares. To conduct this experiment, he took 40 people of all ages and hooked them up to monitoring machines. He then injected them all with a sleep inducing drug, along with a drug he created which made people speak whatever went through their brains- conscious or unconscious  While they slept, the scientist recorded their brain activity, and placed recording devices near each person’s mouth so that he could essentially record their dreams. 
When the volunteers awoke, only one person reported to having a nightmare. The scientist disregarded all the other volunteer’s tapes, and focused on this one person’s tape- a young boy no more than 8. 
What the scientist heard on this young boy’s tape is terrifying and essentially made the scientist leave his practice. We have the recording here today

will someone listen to this and tell me what it is im scared and to much of a wimp to listen to it

wait SOMEONE DO IT I WILL PAY YOU

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.

People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.

You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations

It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”

Actually reblogging again to add commentary:

"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".

And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.

And, hm, what else?

Oh yeah!

Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).

Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.

it has been economically and psychologically studied that unless you make 75000 dollars a year, youre not happy. thats the amount of money every year that you need to be really happy.

so no, saying “following your dreams” doesnt cut it. my dad grew up in poverty and had to work his entire damn life doing shit he didnt want to do, and now hes like 53 and hes FINALLY happy because hes making money. he had to give up his dreams in order to get out of poverty. so YEAH

money doesnt buy you happiness, but unless you make 75000 a year then youre not totally safe

"own a yarn shop" - Wow, yeah, ‘let them eat cake’ much?

And just supposing it’s that easy, this is forgetting the huge amount of time work it takes to start and run a business; it’s not like entrepreneurialism is something you do on the side in between your knitting.

And okay, let me explain why people are tempted to try and gain “worthless scraps of paper,”:

GOODS AND SERVICES

only privileged assholes think you can just drop all your shit and ~*follow your dreams*~. the rest of us have to shovel our way up from the fucking bottom just to dream of seeing sunlight one day.

Something I’ve always hated about this mentality (aside from the money/privilege aspects already mentioned) is that it totally disregards the fact that you need to have some bare minimum of talent in order to be successful, even if it is something you are wildly passionate about.

Given the chance, I would spend every day of the rest of my life creating dance. I love to dance, and anyone who has seen me perform can tell you I’m actually not bad. I am passionate about it, I am a pretty good actor, I can choreograph and rehearse a pretty decent contemporary number in roughly 8 hours. I love to dance.

But I probably never will make my living off of it.

My body isn’t built to be a professional dancer; I’ve got shorter legs than torso, I am short, and some of my musculature is just flat out biologically non-condusive to dance. I don’t jump high enough, land soft enough, or turn fast enough to ever do it professionally.

The dance world is HIGHLY competitive already, and that is without the sudden influx of people we’d be warring against if everyone started following the “just do what you love” mentality that is being espoused above. Even as a boy I would have to fight tooth and nail to be recognized in my field with the meagre talent I have now.

It seems condescending when talented artists make these cute little comic strips that showcase their considerable skills in visual art, and then tell people “just follow your passions! I did! Look how happy and fulfilled I am!” without ever touching on the fact that they themselves are obviously TALENTED ARTISTS!

And “getting creative” still requires that you have some kind of skill related to your passion. On Tabatha Takes Over s5ep9, you see a perfect example of this “do what you love” crap not panning out at all. A woman quits her job and opens a manicure salon. The problem being that she doesn’t actually know anything about aesthetics or how to run a salon. She opened it because she had the money, and she loved getting manicures. (This is a theme that comes up over and over again on Tabatha’s show; “you wanted free manicures so you opened a salon.” “You really like fro-yo, so you opened a restaurant.”) Beyond that, you can see more examples of people “just following their passions” when the salon technicians don’t actually know what they are doing. The owner’s “passion path” has now made it possible to set more people on their “passion path”, without the necessary training. It’s the blind leading the blind. The owner has no idea what she’s doing, so she has no idea what to ask from her staff, so those girls who are following their passions think that this is how you succeed in this field and all they’ve done is followed their passions straight down a path into a failing business.

"You like knitting? Open a yarn shop!"….. do you know anything about accounting? Customer service? Overhead? Suppliers and contracts? The legalities of having employees? How to schedule or do payroll? Every aspect of a field requires a certain skill set, and while it is great to follow a passion, it needs to be a passion that you can market well, or tailor to your skills. If you don’t have the talent necessary to succeed in a field, then you very well may not succeed.

^^^^^^

To add to this:

When I was ten, my dad and stepmom decided that they wanted to “retire” and move down to the Oregon coast with me and my three siblings, and they’d run this little store that had a cafe in the back that they bought out of foreclosure. And, in their minds, it was going to be PERFECT. They’d get to spend lots of time with us kids, and my stepmom, who LOVES cooking more than any person logically should, would get to run a cafe. She’d get to do what she loved.

In practice, it went HORRIBLY. We hardly saw our parents and while my sisters and I were all under or just barely AT thirteen, had to run the house and ourselves for the most part while taking care of a kid under the age of five. My dad had to make trips constantly up to Seattle to run his real estate and mortgage business so we could have income. My stepmom nearly killed herself running that cafe, because employees kept being hired and fired because of various problems (drugs, stealing, etc).

You can see this same scenario play out all the time (love cooking, open restaurant, business does terribly because you don’t know shit about running a restaurant). There are SHOWS about helping these people. Following your passions is NOT ALWAYS THE BEST IDEA.

AU Idea: Hans is Anna’s twin.

//I saw this nifty au with Kristoff as Elsa’s brother, and I thought, well, what if Hans and Anna were twins, Elsa’s little brother and sister?

In this AU, Hans knows about Elsa’s powers, because his memories weren’t altered when Anna’s head was struck with ice. Because of this, Elsa still talks to Hans after she shuts everyone else out, and their parents trust him to look after her when they go away.

Anna, meanwhile, takes Elsa’s silence very personally, because she doesn’t understand why Elsa would only talk to Hans. Anna grows up very close to her twin brother, and clings to him a lot. He’s literally her only friend, and Elsa envies their relationship.

Hans, though… He doesn’t show it, but he really hates keeping Elsa’s secret, and constantly lying to Anna about it. He may even see Elsa as something of a burden, since he has to take care of her all the time.

When Elsa strikes Anna in the heart with ice, Hans finally snaps. He locks Elsa in the secret prison their father built, and decides to take the throne for himself. Maybe the power of love finally brings the three siblings together, or maybe it ends tragically for all of them…

AU Idea accepted
