As I posted recently I've been moving into a new place. Thus, I only have DVD's and old TV shows to watch while i'm not doing homework, writing papers, studying, at the studio,  or reorganizing my new apartment.... yet again...(babes new apartment pics are coming soon, and I CAN'T WAIT TO FINSIH ;)  With that being said I've been watching Dexter during the few short breaks i've been able to have! I got into it from an ex-bf..... and thank goodness..... Dexter is awesome! It might sound completely morbid, even sadistic??? but i'm fascinated. I'm not quite sure what's happening in the new episodes, but the few episodes i have seen show that he is struggling with the concept of faith and how he justifies his own murders with God. Quite a divergence from previous episodes.
I can't wait to catch up! '
Anyhow, it inspired me to do a post of a woman in neglect. Rita, in the first season of Dexter is completely vulnerable and Dexter treats her with such warmth and comfort, it reminded me of one of my favorite movies, The RainMaker, with Matt Damon and Danny DiVeto. Matt Damon frowns upon Clare Danes, a women who is brutally abused by her husband, and then he can't seem to get her out of his head. It's how i felt about Rita. Normally, I would have viewed someone like her, or Claire Danes character, as incapable of taking care of ones self. However, regretfully I have seen abuse and neglect with my own eyes. I channeled this frustration in these photos because I could not shake off the images I saw oh these women and children. It's not a post about fashion, but one about acknowledgement. Acknowledgment to the women and men who suffer from abuse. There are those who care..promise. 
Please donate whatever you can to your local goodwill or shelters. They are a great source of help for these families who are struggling.

old/new photo fun

It has been a super busy semester and I'm getting closer and closer to graduating!!! WOWZA!
