I just need to get this off my chest. Whenever I’m confronted about this story and explain my side, skeptical brows are raised, followed by “Are you sure it was a knife?” Yes. I’m sure it was a knife.
About a week ago I went to Giant Tiger with my friend to buy noodles, which I think is…
Hey there, I was wondering if you guys would do me a really big favour; if you could take a second to reblog this it would mean a lot to me.
My friend Patience was arrested last night following pepper spraying a woman in self defense who tried to assault her friend with a knife for wearing a shirt depicting a nun in a sexual matter, which she found offensive. She has been carrying this pepper spray for over a year, and does not use it lightly. Local papers have already reported a biased telling of this story. The woman is from one of the many military families living here, as there is a military base and while most are quite nice she’s been known to use it to mask her behaviour. My friend (and her friend) enjoy alternative dress; they are pierced and tattooed and believe this may be a contributing factor in why her story was not believed. Her other friend, the only witness, came to her defense yesterday and was charged with obstruction of justice. Someone at the store they were in initially apparently spotted the woman being irate and loud and following them out of the store.
I can tell you first hand, Patience is an incredibly kind, polite, person and a talented artist who can be pretty reserved and attacking someone without reason is 100% completely out of her character. She’s a good student as well, but where as this woman is 45 and military she is 17 and still hoping to start a career, which this could jeopardize. I know several friends who’ve had similar experiences in my town, but none this bad.
hey here’s a reminder
you’ve made it this far when it comes to art, you’ve improved so much compared to where you started, and you’ve got it in you to make it a whole lot further
don’t let your nagging self hatred get to you, just keep drawing, keep working. you’re gonna be fine!
