"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”
From Adora Svitak’s talk “What adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.
This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.
this is so effing important and i’m super impressed after read her transcript
Do the windy thing, boy!
Like all the others, he’s hand made from scratch and all patterns are mine. Every piece of clothing/accessory he has was made by me from raw material. Patterns/etc. are my own, fully posable plush doll. Stands about 6 inches tall! :D
I had way too much fun with his photoshoot. I FINALLY MADE ONE OF THE KIDS (okay, so I made him a couple of months ago, but look, photos!)
His shoes are super simple compared to the others i’ve made, but I really like them.
Once again, the xkit guy wins by solving our gif problem in less than a day!
Feel like buying him a coffee?
He’s not setting out to make money with xkit, and wants to keep it free and without adds. Sending a couple bucks his way (if you can) will help him cover the cost of the servers that keep xkit running. Even if you can’t donate, please pass it on so others know about this opportunity!
Reblog if you daydream a lot.
This includes letting your ideas, stories and head-canons marinate in your head on a daily basis to the point of not writing any of it down because you’re either afraid of how it will turn out or too fucking lazy to write that shit down.
