Refuge For The Imaginative

Thinker. Exister. Passionate creative. Individual.
Someone who will be somebody someday.
Currently, that someone a first year art student with a heavy dose of an acting background and ombre hair.
My blog is inspiration as filtered through my brain.
My musings, art, tea, Old Hollywood, quips, quotes, feminism, cats, literature, and the like is what you'll find around these parts.

Keep watching. That someday is a lofty word, but when it knocks, I'll be there to sweep opportunity off its feet.

“Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative ” -Oscar Wilde



fucking tell girls they’re cute. tell boys they’re cute. people are cute. look at them living and having eyelashes and little tummies. sometimes people are so fucking cute and when you tell them they’re cute they smile and that’s fucking cute.

While the focus for this is placed more on panic disorder, this is arguably a model which can be applied to virtually any anxiety disorder (though you might have to tweak it slightly with generalized anxiety disorder).

Notes (please do not delete these):

  • Struggles with anxiety or any mental disorder should be treated under the guidance and supervision of a licensed professional whenever possible. The information above is NOT a treatment plan so much as a response to misinformation commonly found on Tumblr.
  • Offering advice to individuals struggling should only occur when the person offering advice understands exactly what they are saying and the implications of that advice. Even if advice “sounds” right or “seems” valid and comes from a place of good intention, it can still cause harm.
  • Individuals struggling with panic or virtually any anxiety disorder should consider their own approach to coping, looking to their own experiences to decide what has or has not worked for them (long-term workability vs. short-term relief), while trying to find credible information from reliable sources to formulate new strategies if they choose to try something new (assuming therapeutic guidance cannot be pursued).
  • Understand your role when someone else is having a panic attack, and discuss their options with them (preferably at a time when there is no panic attack happening): you can help them if they request it, but it might have some drawbacks as being a safety behavior (described within the slides). Similarly you can step back, literally leaving the situation entirely when a panic attack happens, so the individual can deal with it their own way. Let them decide.

Here in America, to celebrate our Freedom properly, we set off loud noises throughout the night, accompanied by explosions lights for about a week before and after the alotted day of celebration mimicking what our countries founders saw heard reverberating throghout off the hills as they planned their next strategy.
While they camped out in their forts hiding and plotting for freedom from this fire, we camp in our air-conditioned houses hiding out from our neighbors’ display of their freedom in the form of fireworks.


The Cloud by Richard Clarkson is an interactive lamp and speaker system, designed to mimic a thundercloud in both appearance and entertainment. Using motion sensors the cloud detects a user’s presence and creates a unique lightning and thunder show dictated by their movement. The system features a powerful speaker system from which the user can stream music via any Bluetooth compatible device. Using color-changing lights the cloud is able to adapt to the desired lighting color and brightness. The cloud also has alternative modes such as a nightlight and music reactive mode.

Hypnotizing Spiral Staircase Photography

Stairs are probably the last thing that would come to mind if someone were to ask you about potentially interesting photography subjects, but these spiral and helical staircases beg to differ. They are standing proof that, with the right perspective, even a set of stairs can make for an absolutely stunning photograph.

Most of these photos owe their appeal to these staircases’ hypnotizing spiral forms. Spiral staircases are appreciated by architects and designers for the extraordinary columns of space that they can create and for their dynamic forms. Technically, however, most of them are helical stairs, not spiral – true spiral stairs must revolve around a central point, while helical stairs revolve at a set distance from a central point.
