When I was a kid, one of my dream jobs was becoming a newspaper cartoonist. I was a big fan of Garfield and Peanuts, then later Calvin & Hobbes and The Far Side. I went to college to become an Illustrator. I was supposed to be drawing things for advertisements in magazines and stuff like that. All along though I would draw comics to entertain my friends. I would make photocopied books and pass them out to whoever would take them. By the time I finished college newspapers were dying and my dream job was dying along with them.

But at the same time the newspapers were fading, the internet was growing. I kept drawing comics but instead of just showing my friends, I put them on the internet for anyone to see. As the internet grew, so did my readers. A few years later I was able to quit my day job and live off of just my cartooning income. I stopped chasing my dream job but it came back and found me.

Netflix and chill is a Colloquialism about coming over to have sex.... cause there used to be nothing good on Netflix so saying "Netflix and chill" really meant have sex. Some kids made it popular when their grandma posted her grand dtr got knocked up cause there was nothin good on Netflix and blamed the pregnancy on Netflix and not her irresponsible grand dtr

Quite a good thing to say. There are still people who think that mental illnesses being treated with medication is just burying the problem when talk therapy and the like is what you need, but often issues like depression don't have a specific cause, but instead are triggered by physical problems like hormone imbalances. Also, yes, some people are more "attuned" to art, they are more interested and perhaps more coordinated and able to think outside the box, but even the classical masters had teachers and practice.
