The Signs On Their Birthday
  • Aries:Jumps out of bed and demands presents
  • Taurus:Has a separate birthday cake for themselves, because they are not sharing the deliciousness with anyone
  • Gemini:Announces it's their birthday every day for a week leading up to their actual birthday, when they go buck wild
  • Cancer:Wakes up early, because they're excited; waits for birthday texts and calls so they can feel loved
  • Leo:Wakes up July 23rd, announces it's their birth season and keeps the party going until August 23rd; their actual birthday is celebrated with a party so turnt up that it's aired on MTV
  • Virgo:Gets so drunk they wake up in the hospital the next morning (underage Virgos get drunk off of Kool-Aid ;))
  • Libra:Gets a birthday kiss from each of their hoes at the same time (how, nobody can figure out, but everyone is jealous)
  • Scorpio:Demands the spotlight for one day in their life; they wanna be taken care of like they do for everyone else
  • Sagittarius:Their phone is constantly going off all day with happy birthday texts, calls, tweets, emails, Tumblr posts, etc. etc.
  • Capricorn:Boosts their age up until they hit twenty five; after that they stop officially celebrating their birthdays and yell at anyone who reminds them of their age
  • Aquarius:Has a birthday party on the moon
  • Pisces:Cries during "Happy Birthday" and makes a super sentimental wish

Jacqueline Kennedy – Born on this day in 1929

Jacqueline Kennedy became the First Lady of the United Stated at the age of 31. With her gracious personal style and her passion for history and the arts, she worked hard to transform the White House into a center for American culture.

Jackie soon set about making the White House into a real home for her family. She turned the sun porch on the third floor into a kindergarten school for Caroline and 12 to 15 other children, who came every morning at 9:30. There was also a swimming pool, a swing set, and a tree house on the White House lawn for Caroline and John Jr.

Jackie also thought about what the White House represented to its many visitors and to citizens everywhere. She wanted people to have a greater appreciation of the history of America’s most famous residence and its past inhabitants. 

Her first major project as First Lady was to restore and preserve the White House. She enlisted the aid of many experts, established a White House Fine Arts Committee, and created the post of White House curator. Gathering outstanding examples of American art and furniture from around the United States (including many items that had belonged to former presidents and their families), she restored all the public rooms in the White House.

As FLOTUS, Jacqueline Kennedy planned important dinners and events at the White House and invited artists, writers, scientists, poets, and musicians to mingle with politicians, diplomats, and statesmen. 

After a visit to the White House, the world-renowned violinist Isaac Stern wrote to Mrs. Kennedy to thank her. “It would be difficult to tell you,” he wrote, “how refreshing, how heartening it is to find such serious attention and respect for the arts in the White House. To many of us it is one of the most exciting developments on the present American cultural scene.

Chace Crawford celebrated his 30th birthday at a party/roasting on the 25th of July.

I wish I had more photos! From what I’ve read, Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), Jessica Szohr (Vanessa Abrams), and Kevin Zegers (Damien Dalgaard) were all there. Even executive producers of Gossip Girl Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz were there too! I also heard Sebastian Stan (Carter Baizen) was apart of the evening too. Ed took part in the roasting, and I really hope there’s a video of this soon!! Makes me so happy to see how many parts of the Gossip Girl crew have kept in contact :)
