Today’s weather fits the chapter I’m working on. Morocco. I’ve, absolutely, fell in love with the Sahara Desert and Ourika Valley. Absolutely beautiful and stunning view, do they offer.

Hello Studyblr Community! 
I’ve been working on my very own geographical book to help with my note taking. 
I’m loving how it’s turning out to be pretty rustic and simple. And proud that I’ve been spending the past 2 days staying productive.

25.06.17 // Bullet Journal July Spread

I started this month’s plan spread with a little mix of colors. With a touch of the tones of blue. Inspiration from AmandaRachLee’s bullet journal layout. I’m planning to add some college schedules into the journal as well. I hope it goes well. 

Pretty plain - mind me, but I’m trying to find out which layout works best for me. 

Seeing my spread - I’m taking my studyblr account pretty seriously. Because - I think, this is what actually makes me motivated to study.

Pan Jinlian [潘金蓮] is a protagonist in the Chinese classic novel Jin Ping Mei (The Plum in the Golden Vase), and a minor character in the Water Margin, another classic. A well-known figure in Chinese culture, she represents the quintessential adulterous wife, and has become the patron goddess of brothels and prostitutes.

Pan Jinlian was the wife of Wu Dalang, whose younger brother, Wu Song, eventually became one of the major marsh rebels and a most memorable hero. While Wu Song was a handsome, stout and tall young man, Wu Dalong was an unsightly dwarf, making a living by peddling bread. Pan Jinlian, young, beautiful and graceful, was always jeered by neighbors as “a flower planted in a cow’s dung.”

Pan, dissatisfied with her marriage, has an extramarital affair with Ximen Qing, a handsome womanizer in town. Wu Dalang learns of the affair, but Pan and Ximen murder him by adding poison to his food. They bribe the coroner to conceal the true cause of his death. Wu Song grows suspicious of his brother’s death and carries out his own investigations to eventually discover the truth. Wu Song takes the law into his own hands in revenging his brother after his failure to bring the case to a corrupt court: he slays Pan Jinlian and her lover.

anonymous asked:

You know what makes me mad? Is how racism towards asians are SO looked down on. People get batshit crazy when a racist remark is made about a black person but they all turn their backs when someone makes fun of asians. Yall are hypocrites. Honestly why is disrespecting asians okay? Asians are so underrated. Go watch a video on @godjp. People have the fucking audacity to rob asians because they think they're so vulnerable. Imagine if he was black.

you know what also makes me mad?

getting followed every time i enter an asian owned store. since we’re playing oppression Olympics here

im not saying that racism against asians isnt a thing. im well aware of its existence and i personally call out others who say anti-asian sentiments and i also dont tolerate asian fetishism

but for you to come into a black persons inbox, and act as if racism against my people is somehow not tolerated by the public, while innocent black people are being murdered everyday by the police, while we still have to remind people that our lives matter, while we have a whole president who thinks we’re a bunch of thugs. you are fucking ignorant

now while you somehow think us black folks have it easier racism wise. how about you go educate your people on anti-blackness cause yall got a WHOLE lot of that in your respective communities.

there are ways to speak about racism against asian people without dragging black people into it and downplaying our struggles.

like seriously. talk about the racism you face as an asian person all day, that’s completely fine and valid, ill listen to you and help spread your voice. it IS an issue and we do need to have a bigger conversation about how we treat asian people in the media and just in everyday life

but what you NOT gonna do it act like black people can just call “racism!!!” and everyone immediately rushes to fix the issue. that doesnt happen. thats not how it works

The most sinister idea out there is that we aren’t legitimately Asian for whatever reason.

The most sinister idea out there is that we’re honorary whites.

The most sinister idea out there is that we don’t have ‘real’ oppression. Illegitimate oppression.

They are all ideas to control the narrative and perception of Asians. Perceptions that we have of ourselves.

And they’ll say all of this while at the same time suspecting us of being terrorists or spies, ignoring those of us who aren’t model minorities (and ignoring model minorities as well unless to use them as a shield), laughing at our names and our pain, telling us we’re not fully human, individual, or creative. That we’re just hardworking obedient monolithic uniform all-look-the-same mass-produced robots from foreign backwards places.

We’re the model minority until we’re the yellow peril. They’ll use authenticity goalposts to try and stop us from being “modern” and “authentic” at the same time. But. We are modern and authentic at the same time. Our cultures and traditions aren’t mutually exclusive to modernity. Our authenticity isn’t dependent on our cultures and traditions. We exist, therefore we are authentic. We exist now in the modern day present, and we will exist in the future. We are the future, and they’re afraid of that.

plisetsky-trash  asked:

:0 What roles do the Eastern bros have? Or is that a little surprise for the future ;) ?

oh god yes thank you, ok, so while the frame story is a super cliche undercover cop drama, it wouldnt be an eastern promises mafia au if the bulk of the narrative didnt rest on the eastern criminal underground. once america infiltrates the vory v zakone and befriends finland/poland/lithuania, he finds himself digging into a decade-long cold case (which france, england’s ex-partner, quit the force over and joined the press for) which ends up reuniting a lot of folks and unraveling some serious bad blood

the far east  three families (china, japan, and south korea) that specialize in contraband, extortion, and high-level government corruption. don’t fuck with them; only they get to fuck each other up. oh, hong kong is a spoiled heir who is probably (totally) england’s snitch/dealer

the near east  a rag tag group of ex-criminals who moonlight as a trauma clean-up crew after retiring from a life of hard crime. they know everyone and everyone knows them, and everyone owes them favours (turkey has the bulgarians by the balls and greece was italian muscle). now, they mostly fuck around on the antiquity black market and gamble on weekends with the nordics (who run a bail bond agency, because, yes, this is also a prison au)

the east america’s (initial) target. russia, belarus, and ukraine are royalty and untouchable after forcing the asians into an alliance. america starts getting in deep when he befriends poland (tattoo artist), lithuania (informant-advisor), and finland (low-level associate drifter), and tries to play hero. poland and lithuania just want out of this life, but finland’s the dark horse and nobody knows what the fuck he’s gunning for
