Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out. You’re curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because you’re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.

You know what fucking sucks? When you like someone but they show no interest in you what so ever. So you find your self struggling with confusion and find yourself in a whole different mind set. I hate that shit, I just want someone to actually beg me to stay or want me around because that’s when they’ll mean it. I’m sick of playing these games, why can’t somebody just like me as much as I like them? This whole “feelings” thing is so blehh, I’m just sad now.

She enrolled three weeks ago and is already top of the class, scoring 100 per cent on a recent test.

Esther, from Walsall, in the West Midlands of western central England, isn’t the only member of her family with a talent for numbers - her six-year-old brother Isaiah is already taking an A-level in maths.

Her mother, Efe, said applying to the university was “an interesting process because of her age.” “We even had to talk to the Vice Chancellor,” Efe Okade said. “After they interviewed her they realised that this has been her idea from the beginning. “From the age of seven Esther has wanted to go to university. “But I was afraid it was too soon. She would say, ‘Mum, when am I starting?’, and go on and on and on. “Finally, after three years she told me, ‘Mum I think it is about time I started university now.” Esther applied in August, and after a phone interview, an essay and a maths exam, she finally got the news in December that she had been accepted into the course. “She was flying,” said Efe. “She was so happy.” “She is doing so well. She took a test recently and scored 100 per cent. “Esther talks about running her own bank one day,” added Efe. “She has a lot of plans, and talks a lot about finances. “She says she wants to be a millionaire. “Isaiah is following in his sister’s footsteps. He is doing calculus and advanced algebra. “Even when he was in my tummy Esther was already teaching him.” Eshter isn’t the youngest child ever to be enrolled on a university course in the United Kingdom.

In 1981 Ruth Lawrence, from Brighton, passed the Oxford exam at 10 years old.

She graduated in 1985 at the age of 13 with a first class degree in Mathematics.

Does SasuHina make a lick of sense though?

Do ships need to make sense to be shipped? I’ve seen people ship characters that didn’t even know each other.

I my experience, most SH fans like the “what could have been” and aren’t really interested in canon.

Searching for love on apps

It’s actually really depressing if you step back and think about it. We’re just swiping through people so blindly. We don’t see how complex, beautiful, and interesting someone can be. We just disregard it all, and scroll through their pictures.

Meryl's Return Trip to LA?

Just keep thinking about what Jessica said about seeing Meryl in LA in a couple of weeks and wondering if she will try to make a return visit before she starts SOI.  If she does, I think it will be another in and out.  It will be interesting if we see anything about her this weekend that would indicate she is staying in Michigan. 

We know she and Charlie are co-hosting Detroit4Live on March 5th & 6th so she could technically make a trip to CA anytime and return on March 4th.  I would so love for her to be with Maks if they announce her as part of Sway or for their anniversary of their 1st DWTS “meet.”  But, who knows what else she may have going on.

The next week she has the Airweave event in New York on March 11th and then the first SOI is on March 14th?  I think they will practice on the 12th/13th for the first performance.  Then we know she has a crazy SOI tour with a couple of breaks in between.

My money is on Jessica that we will see Meryl in LA unless something really important changes that plan.  I mean, Jessica hasn’t failed us yet!

Happy to be back from my travels!



i finally made some stickers! and i’m just curious (since i know nothing about these things *sweats nervously*) how much should an original nonprinted sticker collection cost? what about printed? also if i start selling these in storenvy or somewhere else, what kind of stickers would people buy? fanart or original? what do you guys think? is this a good idea 

also if i made stickers of these too would anyone be interested?

Whether you are like me, interested in pediatrics, public health, yourself a survivor or whether you are not, I STRONGLY urge you to watch this, medblrs, all health professionals, and budding health professionals. The impact of childhood trauma on health is real.

I worry about my own health outcomes, my potentially shortened lifespan. I hope that it is this kind of message that makes us all, healthcare professionals or not, more aware of the need to care for kids who can’t protect themselves. Because they become adults who still need help.

There are counsellors out there who have watched some stupid tv show that has pseudo psychology or w/e are like “ooh the human mind is so interesting im going to be a Cool Psychologist” and then go into it like some fandom blogger and treat their patients like some little sub human interesting amusement for them that they go home and make fun of. That snarky therapist blog is disgusting they sound like they think their patients are stubborn children that they’re trying to coax into behaving


Master Grade RGM-96X JESTA, Completed

This is a hefty master grade kit. Part way through the build I picked it up and was impressed by the weight of the thing.

The legs have a few interesting tricks to maximize their range of motion, namely some swiveling disks at the hip and sliding joints under the knees that are akin to the sliders found in the shins of some transformers figures.

Weapon and ammo storage in the forearms is boss, the space for the LED module is groovy, and range on the ankle joints let the Jesta A-stance like a mutha-fugger.

This is one badass grunt suit.

Collections Highlight: Dottie Dimple Shoes 

This pair of adolecent shoes had an interesting label that caught my eye. On the sole the mark reads “Dottie Dimple O.P.R.S. & Co.” A quick search on the trusty GOOGLE showed that Dottie Dimple was in fact a children’s literary character from the late 19th century. Also, apparently she had her own shoe brand! 

Now our museums have a wonderful reserach library and archive with an extensive 19th century children’s literature section. Lo and behold we have nine Dottie (Dotty) Dimple books in collection! I looked through them all and shot some pictures that show Miss Dimple having several adventures and misadventures. Full of morality and how to behave, our little heroine Dotty seems to learn a great deal along with her two sisters. 

***Photos of books and little Dotty to follow tomorrow!

Darren is generous enough and so professional that he probably doesn't mind if someone else sings the song he wrote. But I just wish that Glee would have let this be part of Blaine's story, maybe songwriting could lead to Blaine reconsidering a career as a performer. The Rachel storyline is tired and old with everything just being handed to her. Blaine's story is unresolved and therefore more interesting to the majority of viewers. Fans are still excited to see what happens for Blaine.

There are no more episodes left. Blaine certainly isn’t getting the A plot in 613 and we know that he’s barely in 6x09 so Blaine is not getting his due at all this season. There’s nothing at all for Blaine.

I’m interested in fashion and makeup and all of those things, but I actually am also really interested about other stuff in life. I’m an actress — I have a job, I have a life. There are so many other things that I think, you know, you would ask a man that you wouldn’t ask a woman.
