There’s a fine line between courting someone and harassment.

On the left: A character sitting on a bench, wearing glasses, reading a book. On the right: a male figure approaching the lone reader. Dialogue. Male speaking: “Hey! Would you like to go on a date with me?”. Character responds: “Huh? Oh, no, thank you, but I appreciate the invite.” Male thinking: “Select option: 1) ignore rejection, start negotiation 2) call names: Wh#re! Sl*t! You’re ugly!” 3) leave her alone.

#4 You’re expected to

On the left: a, illustrated blob character wearing a red shirt, blue jeans, sneakers, a yellow backpack, and a clumsy propellor trucker cap. On the right: a student wearing a blue trucker cap, a jeans jacket, and red backpack. Both the blob and the student are looking upwards into the sky. The entire background is sky blue.

  1. You’re not expected to stick to one Thing. Use this freedom from societal judgment to scratch itches. Curious about robotics? Take a class or two. Want to try dancing? It might end up becoming your one thing. Want to learn about wealth accumulation? Find the wealthiest neighbourhood in your area…


You don’t want to risk your kid picking the school drug dealer as their role model, do you?

Stacked shipping containers in turquoise, light blue, and dark blue. Right a red one, dark blue, and light blue. The image is taken from the ground up. In the middle is a Blob wearing a purple shirt and smoking a joint. It’s wearing sunglasses to look cool.

OPEN LETTERS

Part of your story can be someone else’s lifeline

Two blobs sitting behind a laptop with grape instead of an apple icon. The blob on the left is reading a blog written by an anonymous lifestyle writer, pictured on the right wearing a black hoodie, the eyes not visible. The title reads “let go, or be dragged.”

Dear Anonymous Blogger,


Some people may just be desperate — the key is figuring out for what?

A clown Blob standing in front of a red and yellow circus tent facing a river. The clown has blue-ish hair, a red with a yellow hat, and wears a green shirt. It’s holding a phone and has an evil smirk on its face because it just sent out another harassing comment to a brand.
