So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
No matter what, her natural beauty is better. This gives people an idea of how photoshop can change a persons beauty in a matter of clicks. Look at her patchy skin suddenly turn flawlessly smooth and clear, and her eye colour and her lip colour difference. It gives people an idea of make up too, imagine the amount of make up the make up artists used.
I admit this is a very good photo. But her natural beauty is so much better.
This is an excellent metaphor for what most people go through. Though I think the art was intended to be an inspirational, “go get your dreams” type image, i think its a lot more sad and true than that. The unicorn is a mthical beast that doesn’t look anything like a rhino, except that they both have a horn. There is nothing that a rhino can do to become a unicorn, short of destorying its mind and completely altering its body.
This isn’t a stretch for what most people go through when they have body image issues. They look in the magazines and she glorious beautiful people, people so beautiful they don’t actually exist. And some try to work to be exactly like those people. But maybe they just weren’t meant to be shaped like that.
A rhino can still be a beautiful rhino, it does not have to be a unicorn.
^ all of my thoughts I haven’t been able to put together coherently every time I see this
