Schizophrenia: patients usually have less brain tissue
Major Depression: scans show less brain activity in depressed brain
Alzheimer’s: brain tissue significantly shrinks, hippocampus is usually the first region to go
ADHD: less brain activity in the frontal cortex (area associated with decision making) 
OCD: high brain activity 
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): hippocampal volume reduction (area involved in memory) and increased activation of the amygdala (area involved in emotional responses) 

This is so important! I usually don’t reblog posts but people need to understand that mental illnesses are NO CHOICE! You cannot get over it, or snap with your fingers and just be okay again. It takes constant fixing and a lot of strength to get out of this.So to everyone who judges people with mental disorders: people don’t get a choice to develop a disorder or not, but being stupid and telling them to get over it is a choice.PLEASE DONT JUDGE THINGS UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND!

TGIS & Growing Up Barkada

Thank God It’s Sabado (TGIS) was a youth oriented drama series aired on GMA Network from August 12, 1995 to November 27, 1999.
During it’s run, it aired regular on Saturday Afternoon. Produced by GMA and Viva Television. Directed by non-other than Mark Reyes

The show was multi-awarded, namely:

Best Youth Oriented Show
PMPC Star Awards for Television
from 1995 to 1999

Best Teen Oriented Show
Catholic Mass Media Awards
1997

Best TV Special Winner
PMPC Star Awards
1998
The show also was able to produce movies based on the TV Series, such as:

TGIS the Movie
Takot ka ba sa Dilim

so what does this got to do with #JULIELMO?

Well, in the first place, i’d like to give credit to Direk Mark Reyes. He has the eye for chemistry. He saw what clicked, he saw what the common teen would love, and he saw who were a good pair and would glitter. He made Peachy & Wacks. He brought them from just doing sweet  nothings as high school lovers (TGIS) to almost marrying young adults (Growing Up) and to becoming mature young parents of another GMA show, the TEENGen (which i watched, just because of Peachy & Wacks). Well, the fact is, they had very good chemistry, but they were not really into a relationship. But the chemistry was there… they are very good friends.

and in connection with JULIELMO, Mark Reyes again saw that in Julie & Elmo. He knows what the people would love to see together, he knows what would shine once again on TV… HE JUST KNOWS IT. that’s why they boosted the JULIELMO Tandem on Party Pilipinas. They gave them a solo/duet  spots, they gave them theater-like performances on PartyP, their tandem was given a movie - but was haphazardly promoted by the NETWORK again and the low sales was blamed on ‘weak fanbase’ — ito ba ang weak fanbase that until now, for more than a year no JULIELMO projects but we are standing tall??? they gave the tandem a saturday afternoon show that was actually hitting good viewership, good ratings - but the show was just given a SEASON and was replaced with OLD MOVIES, and then TEENGEN which only survived because of PEACHY & WACKS! And then, with unexplainable reasons, all of a sudden JULIELMO was split up.

What i am trying to say is, i hope GMA recognizes the importance of actually learning from experience, and also listening to the crowd. I do not want Julie & Elmo to be in a relationship, professionally speaking, i want them to be a tandem again, a team… because their pair, just works! Instead of spending their resources on a talentless talent, why not invest on these two who have won the hearts of so many, these two who have trended multiple times on twitter, local & WW… these two who have influenced so many ‘FanFic writers’ with just their stance and blank stares at each other. 

this is just one of the many blogs, ranting for a change! haha! :D 
one of the many blogs screaming for THE NETWORK to drop the talentless talents and invest on people, on tandems that are talented, with potentials, spend air time on afternoon dramas that actually would bring in sponsors, would encourage good morals, family values, afternoon series that would touch the hearts of many, series that would not only employ their favorites, but would actually raise up the standard of Philippine Entertainment — because it is a fact, that as you employ, and spend air time on talentless newbie on TV, you actually contribute to the degradation of Philippine Entertainment business!

i appreciate THE NETWORK’S strength on documentaries, on intelligent shows & news, i’d like to applaud you for I-Witness, for Reporters’ Notebook, for Powerhouse etc… but i so hate your favoritism entertainment choices & strategy!

In celebration of the fourth year of Instagram’s community, the 10th Worldwide InstaMeet (#WWIM10) took place this weekend and was by far the most ambitious InstaMeet to date!

In hundreds of cities around the world, from Istanbul to Delhi, from Paris to Pretoria, thousands of Instagrammers gathered together to make photos and videos, and connect around a shared passion for capturing the world’s moments.

Many communities got especially creative with their group shots, such as Borneo, Edinburgh and Tokyo. Thank you all for making the Instagram community such an extraordinary place full of imaginative, dedicated and compassionate individuals who inspire us everyday!

Here is a sampling of some of the InstaMeets from this weekend that caught our eye:

Spotting Cotton Candy Colors with @aurelycerise

For an extra dose of cotton candy-color, follow @aurelycerise on Instagram.

Aurely Cerise (@aurelycerise ) chases rainbows of color, and she describes her photography as “fresh” and smile-inducing. “My friends say my art brings happiness,” says the Paris Instagrammer. With color being her creative trigger, Aurely looks at everyday objects and naturally starts composing still life scenes. Whether it’s masking tape, pencils or a cup of coffee, Aurely enjoys arranging random things and capturing them from particular perspectives. “It’s funny to see how many things could be really beautiful when you only change your point of view,” she says. Organizing also helps to overcome her natural anxiety. “When I create a set-up it allows me to channel my stress.”

When Aurely is not out and about capturing colorful sceneries, she lets her creative juices flow in front of a canvas. “This photo explains how i imagine creation. Nothing is planned, the feelings are getting out from my brush and start creating forms.” Her simple advice for finding joy: “Put some color in your life.”

Today I Met: The Everyday Projects

To see photos from daily life from around the world, explore these Everyday Projects: @everydayafrica, @everydayusa, @everydaymiddleeast, @everydayasia, @everydaylatinamerica, @everydayiran, @everydayjamaica, @everydayeasterneurope, @everydaysrilanka, and @everydayegypt.

This weekend on the festival grounds of Photoville, a public photography exhibition in New York City, the contributing photographers of the Everyday Projects are meeting each other for the first time. “This feels like the ultimate modern moment,” says writer Austin Merrill (@austin_merrill), who along with photographer Peter Di Campo (@pdicampo) co-founded Everyday Africa (@everydayafrica) in 2012. “We’ve all been talking together for so long from across the world that to finally bring this incredible group together in person is electrifying. It’s like we are already family. There was no ‘let’s get to know each other’, we just hit the ground running.”

Austin and Peter’s project has become a global phenomenon, with international photographers creating and contributing to Everyday editions in their own regions. Austin says, “The Everyday Projects give important perspective and context to what life is like for people around the world, outside of just the bad things that happen.”
