New Influence

A midday film was shown on C4 on Thursday (so I had to tape it) called 'Odd Girl Out', with Alexa Vega (from Spy Kids). It was quite a reasonable and touching insight into the world of the victims of bullying (fits in nicely with Anti-Bullying Week!), and it seems to have made some kind of influence in my work and trail of thought. Just to let you know, I thought it was quite good. You can check out the IMDb section here.
One thing I've learnt from it is that you shouldn't hide problems, but instead, talk about them to others - people who you can trust. Some of the things that Vanessa did to herself in the film; I just had to stop the tape and think.
