Multi-fandom blog. Hobbies include man pain, torturing my characters, and crying over British actors.

 

There was one feature, and only one feature, of interest in the whole of this baffling case and, quite frankly, it was the usual. John Watson. Who, while I was trying to solve the murder, instead saved a life.

Research Questions.

I’m doing a little bit of research for a play that I am working on, which has an underlying theme of mental illness and anxiety. Although I have personal and professional experience of anxiety, I’m curious to hear from other people. I have a few questions for the people of tumblr, if you’d oblige. 

What situations make you feel anxious? 
Are there any life events that you have found particularly stressful?
Can you think of any decisions you have had to make, that have caused you stress and anxiety? 
Are there any decisions that you feel anxiety holds you back from making?

Both real-life and theoretical examples are perfect. Anonymous answers are fine, as well. 

I really appreciate this.

i haven’t been here in so long and now tumblr is super weird

“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

Not tempted by the patter at The Pavillion, the teasing at The Tron, or the carry-on at The Kings?  Like a bit of an experiement? Great. We’re in the same boat. And by “we” I mean the illustrious postgraduate students, and by “experiment” I mean our attempt to pull off the impossible - the 24-Hour Panto.

We will be spending a long, cold night devising and rehearsing our own pantomime. Mad? Possibly. Entertaining? Certainly.  

We will then be throwing our doors open for you to laugh at/with us at 7pm on Thursday 19th of December in the James Arnott Theatre, so please join us and see what our creativity and fatigue produced.

Doors open from 6.30pm, BYOB, donations welcome.

Follow our overnight antics at www.smallscenes.tumblr.com, and tweet us using #g12panto.
