Diplomats are being instructed not to look Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in the eye

  • It is no secret that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson prefers to keep a low profile, but a new Washington Post story suggests the former Exxon Mobile CEO is doing everything he can to fly under the radar. 
  • Many career diplomats told the Post that they still haven’t met Tillerson, and some have even been told to avoid making eye contact.Being told not to look your boss in the eye is an odd directive, and it quickly inspired a Twitter meme. Read more. (3/30/17, 11:13 PM)

this is one of the like 18 different renditions of this song that i love. this one i love for the overall total clarity and crispness. but more specifically i love the end of the climax (3:30 - 4:13); i love how simultaneously.. sweet and easy and powerful the notes are @ 2:57 and 3:13 and 3:32. and i love how she keeps it down at 3:39 and pushes it all the way up at 4:01, and then in particular that soft elasticity in the run at 3:41-3:46 which glides down and up between clarity and rasp. it just sounds SO good. her voice started thinning out around this time to much #controversy but that compressed raspy sound is gorgeous imo. it’s better, tone-wise, than the pitch-perfect but like, nasal and slick 1995 one at madison square garden

On a different note I also like the ball gown junior prom dress and hair and then the aaliyah tribute outfit at the beginning

13. what band got you into metal?

20. when did you get into metal?

like… when i was 12, i think? kinda answered in #13

23: fast or heavy?

i kinda wanna say both, but anything beyond 180 bpm kinda loses me, and anything between 120-140 bpm is usually the most apt to get my interest.

First real photoshoot with the new gal! I purchased her from a guy named Jeremy (he’s Fireballs007 on Fauna Classifieds) and he was such a great guy to buy from. She arrived and is exactly how she was pictured and described even down to her super mellow and sweet inquisitive nature. Honestly she’s so pretty and curious, I love her already. Her hatchdate is 3/30/13 so I was thinking maybe choosing a name that involves the number 3? So far all my herps have Japanese names, so I’m trying to continue with the trend. I’d like to include the kanji for San ( 三 ), the number 3, in the spelling of her name. My first thought was Miwa ( 三和, the kanji used are three & harmony), but I’m totally open to suggestions. 

Headed to SXSW? So are we. Come hang out.

Left: 3/30/13, ~160lbs
Right: 12/13/14, 120lbs

On the left, I was extremely unhealthy. Not only was my weight out of control, but I never moved, I felt tired all of the time, and I could hardly stand to look at myself. (This picture is one of the very few full-body selfies I have from this time.) I wore baggy clothes to hide my body and always felt horrible when I was around other people.

It was shortly after this picture was taken (like maybe a month or two) that I realized I needed to make a change. I wasn’t happy. So I started trying to dress better in clothes that would flatter my body type instead of hide it. I drank more water and ate more healthy stuff instead of the unhealthy foods I was used to eating before.

I set a goal for myself. I wanted to get back to 120lbs, the weight I was three years ago (from the first picture) when I met my guy. I looked at pictures of myself then and realized how tiny I was, remembered how content I was with my body then, and I wanted to get back to that.

It was obviously a slow journey with lots of ups and downs. I still spent a lot of time hating my body, wishing I could just get rid of all of the extra weight and be pretty like all of the other girls. I went through times when I had a very unhealthy mindset regarding food and myself. I had lost maybe 20ish lbs on eating better (healthier food & healthier portion sizes) when I started trying to exercise for basically the first time in my life.

It started off rocky, with a more stops than starts over this past summer (2014), but when school started again, I really got into it, even though I could barely run two for minutes without feeling like I was going to die.

And then there’s now. I’ve recently started a vegetarian diet. Yesterday, when I stepped on the scale, I saw 120 for the first time in years. When I stepped on the treadmill, I ran 2.25 miles, a new personal best. I still may not be 100% happy with my body (there are places I’d still like to tone and slim, personal records I’d still like to beat, flexibility I’d like to gain), but I’m so much happier and healthier than I was a year ago. And I know I can do anything now. 😄

This Holy Week is certainly holy ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I’ll give my thanks to the gods Kodaka for blessing my life with despair Danganronpa
