Time to start getting better.
The Knick - 1x10 - Crutchfield
I’ve always admired her as an actress and felt she was underrated because people were deceived by her beauty and did not expect more from her.
HANNIBAL ⇼ SPIRIT ANIMALS 1/?
WILL GRAHAM - STAG: The Stag represents gentleness in word, thought, and touch. The ability to listen, grace and appreciation for the beauty of balance. Understanding of what’s necessary for survival, power of gratitude and giving, ability to sacrifice for the higher good.
HANNIBAL LECTER - WOLF: The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections. This animal can also symbolize fear of being threatened and lack of trust. When the wolf shows up in your life, pay attention to what your intuition is telling you.
ABIGAIL HOBBS - DOE: The doe has the capacity for infinite generosity. Their heart rhythms pulse in soft waves of kindness. Match that graciousness by offering your trust to her. She will reward you by leading you to the most powerful spiritual medicine you can fathom.
JACK CRAWFORD - BULL: The bull stands for strong will, an uncompromising nature, and even belligerence. Due to its unbending, stubborn personality traits, we get the term “bull-headed.” from the bull.

I just told everyone on Facebook that I have an eating disorder. And that I made the decision to start recovering from it. I don’t know if this was a wise move, but I did it anyway.
I might as well do it here too. Here it is, the “my name is Olivia, and I am bulimic” moment.
It’s no coincidence that the central survivors at the end of the film aren’t tough white male patriarchs like Wilford or Curtis, but are Yona and Timmy: the polar opposites of the ruling classes who took charge of the train 17 years ago. Curtis is simultaneously a messianic cliche and a takedown of white saviour heroes, because the most important thing he does in the end is kill himself in order to save future generations from more of the same old bullshit.
He is a product of the train — in fact, the film makes sure to point out that Curtis can’t remember life before he was onboard — and as a result, he’s an asshole. He’s a brutal killer, and he has no qualms about meting out petty punishments like making Mason eat a cockroach bar while everyone else has sushi. The difference is that unlike Wilford and Gilliam, he recognises that he’s been corrupted by his surroundings. His drive for vengeance and power is the tool that frees people who otherwise might never have escaped: Yona and Timmy, the two great innocents of the movie. But if he’d survived as well, he probably would have turned into another Wilford.
There are certain rules that one must abide by in order to successfully survive a horror movie.
