Oh, and while I've got my art brain on, here's a fella I finally decided I'm done with. Decided to leave his mane rough'n'shaggy, in part out of laziness, in part out of the fact that I don't want to wait a week (or more, thanks to summer humidity) every time I add a new slop of colour.

Gentle reminder that being "self-sufficient" and a "self-starter," and pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, and even just living on your own and expected to be able to do everything for yourself, is actually a highly unnatural state of affairs for human beings which only became the norm in a small number of countries less than a century ago.
For context, I am currently doing a science degree with the intention of becoming a researcher. The biggest thing I am worried about is having to complete a phd while being paid very little, and most likely even once I finish my phd, since I live in a capitalist society and will have to use all of that money just to survive. Although I still plan on going into research, if surviving becomes too difficult, I may have to abandon my dream.
I know someone who loves maths and is doing a maths degree, but decided to not go into academia due to obvious capitalist issues such as needing money to survive.
We do not need capitalism for science or art. It is actively suffocating us while pretending to be on our side.
