Do you have any advice on how to better communicate with your alters? I was just recently diagnosed and still trying to figure out how to get us all on the same page.

I’d check out my /communication tag! Generally these things help-

Developing a headspace

Holding internal meetings


Collecting information about alters/organizing information


I’m finally halfway through all my exams! I’m reviewing some chem right now, and my sister bought me some hand cream recently and I just wanted to go an entire spread in my bujo inspired by it (and by @charlenestudies)! The colours are so nice :)

To everyone in IB, we’re getting closer to the end!!

In the ISS (International Space Station)

America *Writing*: It’s just mostly me and Russia up here… We seem to do all the work. I don’t mind that. I’ve been hitching rides with the Russians for a while now. 

*Russia enters and passes America, who glances up briefly.*

America *Continues to write*: We’re trying to privatize the space companies to send more Americans up ourselves. Things are getting rocky with Russia again. They seem harder and harder to get along with….

Russia: Good morning, Al. Would you like anything to eat?

America *Outloud*: No thanks, big guy. *Back to writing* But we’ve always gotten along up here. I think we both know we need to, to survive. 

America: *Pauses, then finishes writing.* But maybe it’s more than that, sharing our passions, getting along. It’s… nice, anyways.  

5 Questions to ask your Interviewer

If the interviewer does not ask you if you have any questions, you need to ask them if you could ask a few questions! When you ask well thought out questions, it impresses the interviewer and helps you ace out your competition for the job.


9/3/2017 • “You can never be overdressed or overeducated”

This week’s spread. I’m really loving the blue theme 💙 And the quote really speaks to me, especially since it was international women’s day. Women can be strong and independent and have academic excellence while wearing a full face of make up if she wants, wear something revealing if she wants.

No one tells her what to do.  

valentine’s day was a blast with my friends! settling into the ib programme with your friends’ support is sososo important and reassuring 💫 the week has been tiring but hopefully it’s also been fruitful :’) rest up over the weekend everyone!

08.03.17 // celebrating international women’s day by marking law papers!
I would like to take a moment to recognize all the women who worked tirelessly to secure legal rights for women ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
Here’s to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.

My mother always told me
What’s meant to be will always be
She loves unconditionally
Forgives easily
Laughs loudly
And lives selflessly.
That’s what a strong woman looks like to me.

My sister is so weird
All grown up yet in some ways a little girl
If there’s one person who can make me blurt out anything, its her
She’s compassionate and funny
And her nickname should have been sunny
Because when she walks into the room
Her smile drives away all the gloom.

My best friend will probably kill me for this
But then she’ll shower me with hugs and a kiss
What would I do without her in my life
If I was a man, I’d make her my wife
So very intelligent yet goofy as hell
She gets all my ideas without me having to sell.

My niece is a baby, so very little still
But look how everyone dances to this angel’s will,
For her, I wish she grows up knowing
What strong women are and how very loving.

All these incredible women
The list is far too long
A very happy women’s day to them
They show me how to be strong.

—  Happy Women’s Day!
The Real Meaning of Genderism and Genderist



The belief that gender is a binary, comprising male and female, and that the aspects of a person’s gender are inherently linked to their sex at birth.

Genderism is the cultural belief that gender is a binary, or that there are, or should be, only two genders — man and woman — and that the aspects of one’s gender are inherently linked to the sex in which they were assigned at birth.

It can reinforce negative attitudes, bias, and discrimination towards people who display expressions of gender variance or nonconformity and/or whose gender identity is incongruent with their birth sex.

Genderism is of particular relevance to individuals who fall within the transgender spectrum, and is the overarching ideology responsible for transphobia and gender bashing.

In addition, much like how transphobia is parallel to homophobia, genderism is said to be parallel to heterosexism.

  • Brent Bilodeau, Ph.D.,Genderism: Transgender Students, Binary Systems and Higher Education,

It is also sometimes used to describe Discrimination towards gender variant persons who fall outside of the gender binary; is prejudice towards individuals whose professed gender identity does not fit the gender binary as strictly male or female.

It is a type of transphobia and sexism.

It affects third gender, genderqueer, and other non-binary identified people.

Cisgender and binary transgender people can both display prejudice against non-binary people, and there is discrimination of this sort in the transgender community much like there is transphobia in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities.

When you see someone using “genderist” in reference to trans people, you are immediately notified that they are engaging in hate speech, as they are trying to appropriate the term that describes them for use against the trans community, which holds *precisely the opposite view*.

Right now, here on Tumblr, the “genderist“ tag is being used by transphobic TERFs, Trans critical, and Gender Critical people to malign and insult and engage in violence against Trans people. Genderism, genderists are also being used as well.

Be aware of this, and do not be fooled.

Genderists are the people who argue that a trans woman is a man/male or a trans man is a woman/female.  And the evidence of this use is above, in professional, actual use in legal, political, scientific, and academic standards.


Thought I would share my bujo spread this week considering it’s International Women’s Day and Hermione is such an inspirational character… if anyone can think of a song to represent her, please feel free to suggest one, as you can see that section is currently blank.

Shahla Sherkat (b. 1956) is one of the pioneers of the women’s rights movement in Iran. She is a psychologist and journalist who has been outspoken about the situation of women in the country, often experiencing legal issues because of it.

She is the founder of Zanan magazine, considered the most important women’s journal published after the Iranian revolution. She often had to appear in court for publishing content deemed controversial, in areas ranging from politics to sex, and at one point even had to spend four months in prison. In 2005 she received the Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women’s Media Foundation.
