Odette Hallowes (1912-1995) was an
investigation officer for the Allied forces during World War II. She worked
with the French Resistance during the Nazi occupation, and was subject to
terrible torture and treatment by the Gestapo for her activities.
She survived the war,
and became the only woman to both receive the George Cross and be appointed a
Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur. In 1955, she co-founded the Women of the Year
Lunch, a charitable event in honour of women achievers that still goes on
I noticed that all the Yamas have a little symbol on their shirts and jackets... what is that?? Did they do that???
It’s the 山 (yama) kanji!
It’s part of all of their names so it’s just the yama club symbol now and lmao yes I’d like to think that Shibayama stuck them onto everyone but who
said: I actually went on haikyuu’s character wiki and there are 10 yamas in
total, but I think at least 3 of them didn’t even get lines.
Yes, there sure is! I would like to include them all, but drawing so many
characters every time would end up tiring me out ;; Thank you for letting me
said: I happened to be reading your tags on the last yamayamayamayamayama post
and I saw one…. um 6, who is 6th Yama I must have missed something………
It’s Higashiyama from Johzenji! I
haven’t put him in yet, but I think he’ll be the last (?) one I include! Oh! And for anyone who has asked about
Sarukui too, but I’d just like to reiterate that he’s not a 山 (yama), he’s a 大和 (yamato), but
he can be an honorary yama!! Σ(ノ°▽°)ノMaybe he’ll make an appearance soon!
Anonymous said: yamayamayamayamayama is really confusing i dont know when to stop writing yama
The more yamas the merrier! If it helps, I sometimes shorten them to yama5 (or however many there are) or yama club so it’s easier to manage!
kinda weird how a year ago I hated life enough to cry myself to sleep every night and think about killing myself and now a year later I just really love my life and still wake up tired af but happy and ready to take on the day
A few weeks ago we were asked to replace Amy Winehouse at a festival
in Europe. We agreed to fill in for her, and were curious as to why she
cancelled the date. We confirmed the show and soon heard about her
fateful concert in Belgrade and the subsequent cancellation of her
entire tour. I remembered running into her father a couple of years ago
in the lobby of Universal Music. I was reminded of the frustration, pain
and dysfunction that is such a big part of the life of the addict, and
unfortunately everyone else involved. I didn’t know Amy
personally, but her recent passing hits close to home as the disease of
addiction is a very familiar part of my life. It’s a brutal and savage
condition that wreaks havoc not only on the addict but those around them
Having played over 250 shows since our last album
came out, we understand all too well the challenges of life on the
road. We have been touring for about two years now and it can be tough.
I couldn’t imagine it in the midst of an active addiction. I certainly
would not be able to do it.
It seems that many in the press
had no problem acting as though her disease were as trivial as the
latest “hot beach bods” spread. Maybe the next time someone exhibits
the classic behavior of an addict in trouble, rather than using it as
tabloid fodder, more energy could be spent attempting to help the
person. Laughing at the behavior of a person in the throes of addiction,
or dismissively treating it as entertainment, is no less unforgiveable
than making fun of someone who has begun to deteriorate from the damages
of any other chronic and debilitating disease.
they have not confirmed the cause of death but it seems obvious that she
suffered deeply for many years. I feel for her and those closest to
her, for the pain of these years and for this tragic ending. It’s a
heartbreaking loss, not just of an incredibly talented artist, but of a
beautiful and blessed young woman in the beginning of her life.
