Man Crush Monday

Related imageSuperman – It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s the greatest hero of all time, Superman. Average, bumbling reporter by day, superhero by night; Superman is probably the most recognized and beloved heroes of all time. The last son of Krypton, Kal-El, was raised as Clark Kent by a farm couple in Kansas. As grow he developed amazing powers and with his strong moral values was inspires to become a hero. This Man of Steel dedicates his life to protect the people, to fight against evil and give the world a sense of hope. No battle is too small, whether the world is in peril or business tycoons are exploiting human rights or a corner store is being held up, this hero always tries to be there for the people. Ever since Superman was introduced to the world he has been an icon and inspiration for so many different kinds of people; his existence, fictional or not, is powerful and gives strength to children and adults alike. You can’t deny the truest power of Superman, hope.

One cannot deny the crush worthiness of Superman, he may just be the only man that stayed in my heart from childhood to know. Beyond being the tall-dark-and-handsome type, which I have to admit is one of my favorites, what Superman represents is just so much more amazing. He always tries to do what’s best for all, not letting all these factors that make us discriminate each other stop him, or let corruption bait him; he has his values and refuses to waver. Superman has a golden heart and pure values, and even if sometimes he must face the challenges alone that stop him from making the right choice.

Honestly, the biggest draw for me is that whenever I read or watch the stories of Superman unfold there is always just this lingering feeling that I love. He is my greatest symbol of hope because he nothing stops him from doing what he needs to do. I love represents and always just wish that there were people like him in the real world, not superheroes with powers, even though I think that would be super cool, but just inspire hope. I know that there are but sometimes it feels like they get faded into the background and I just think that it would be amazing if our world had a beacon of hope like Superman.

Girl Meets World S02E26

Image result for girl meets stem,Girl Meets STEM – Riley questions her role, and the role of boys and girls generally,  during a pairs, science experiment. The objective is that one of the partners return to drop a ‘mystery marble’ into a clear solution so the next day the other partner can analyze the result to figure out how to turn the solution clear again. Riley becomes upset when she sees that the boys have left the girls to do the easy part while they do the science; this makes her angry and thus she refuses to drop the marble. This results in divide between the boys and girls the next class followed by Riley making a speech about feminism to her fellow female classmates but also them learning from Topanga that women tend to actually drift away from STEM subjects because essentially it’s not what is expected of them but that fact shouldn’t stop them from trying and dreaming. The divide between the boys and girls continues to the next day where Riley and the other call out the males for not believing in them enough to do science. Farkle is the first to apologize for making Riley feel that way, but during science class, the rest of the students are still divided. But after a sludge filled mishap amends are made and then their science teacher explains that experience was actually about the mystery marble, which was actually mud, but about the fact that girls beginning to drift away from science; he wanted to raise hope and awareness for the potential that every girl, and boy, equally have.

As I have mentioned before I am science girl, but until university, I didn’t understand how uncommon that was. Maybe in high school, I saw it a bit, how in my science class there were only several girls and a majority guys but I always wrote it off as there were more guys in the school than girls; I never actually checked but I always presumed.

It’s not like I never witnessed the prejudice and the judgments of how I was a girl and shouldn’t be in science or dream of being in medicine, I mean I dealt with that in my own house. But I didn’t really care, I’ve always known I want a job in healthcare and it really angered me when someone tried to stop that or discourage it.

I love science, I really love every aspect of it from the question to the process to the discovery, I love it all. I never saw it as a boy versus a girl thing, I always just considered it as fact for me.

My Depression

Last year, I was trekking for months, maybe even longer than that, to get a handle on my mental state. I just felt broken and alone and couldn’t understand any of it or anything. And I kept just telling my self to snap out of it, that I was being over dramatic and just needed to get back to normal. 

The scary thought, the one that made me really pause and realize that something was actually wrong and that I not only needed but wanted help or an answer, possibly both. My scariest thought was questioning my revelance in the life of others, in the world at all; I may have not actually questioned my life or had thoughts of hurting myself but I did question if my existence was revelant. And that was the point that I realize that maybe there was something more going on, maybe I really did need help. 

Conquered Fear?

I’m coming to terms with so many things in my life, at least I think I am. I mean I’m putting more of an effort in speaking my mind and stand up for myself and just recognizing things in general. But it took reaching an emotional low to get this point.

Even though I know all this and understand it better I still can’t let all my emotions out to another person. Writing it all out and sending it off to the virtual world is my outlet to get it all out but in the real world with my family and friends I push myself so hard to let out my surface level emotions but still feel the need to hide the dark parts. I told the people I considered my most trusted about my depression and try to talk more about my feelings now but I still can’t show any of them raw and sad parts of me. I’ve tried and I’ll keep trying but for now, this is the only way I can let those feelings be known, anonymously.

Family

I know what I want family to mean to me but that doesn’t mean it’s what I get. I want my family to be more connected if that even makes sense. I mean the only guarantee I feel like I have is that we have each other in serious situations.
