Not being able to tell if you’re always hungry because either…
A) You’re metabolism is having a weird spike.
B) You’re subconsciously not eating enough.
C) Both because the more physically hungry you are the less of an appetite you have to satiate your hunger. 

Two cups. It normally takes two cups to wake Charlotte up and today she’d just had one. Hell, not even a full one–half of one. By mid day she was dragging. A zombie. Even coworkers had started to notice. It was too late for a normal cup of joe to do the trick, not with the pile of work she had to face that would probably leave her after hours at the company. No. This techie needed a shot of adrenaline to the heart. She needed espresso. Or at least eight of them.

In line, it had taken her about ten minutes to reach half way when she heard a familiar voice. Turning around she smiled. There was no second thought, Charlie left her place and moved to the back. “Are you following me, Mr. Liam?”

Villa 1967 New report up on the website: http://www.proj3ctm4yh3m.com/urbex/2016/02/08/urbex-villa-1967-italy-april-2015/ Villa 1967 has gone down hill quite a lot since some of the previous photos I’d seen and so I couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed with what was left. That aside the place was actually quite nice both from the outside and in some of its internal features.

anonymous asked:

I'm trying to get this story I've been planning but i can't seem to start it right, so can i get a prompt of a girl driving into her home town and slowly remembering it as she was taken away from it when she was 3? If that makes sense, thanks.

If she was three, I don’t know how much she would actually remember but I can try…

As she drove down the road, a feeling of familiarity washed over her. She was only three when she left this place, but in the back of her mind, it had always been home. The ways the trees lined the street made her smile. The old and new buildings appeared in her mind. She was back. This was still home.

Hope I helped! Happy writing!

Fan art for the doujinshi “Left Places” (the last fan art I made was for the prequel “Left Behind”) by ryobkr

Also, check out the full story here: “Left Behind” and “Left Places” is there too.

I really love how this one came out and didn’t want to ruin it by coloring it. It is all drawn in pen except the shading all around. Also, I love how Marik can totally rock that button up shirt with the rolled up sleeves look! <3

This week is Female genital mutilation/cutting prevention week.

What is FGM?

Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting is the ritual removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. It is typically performed using a blade with or without anaesthetic. There are four major types:

  • Type 1 – Clitoridectomy: partial or total removal of the clitoris.
  • Type 2 – Partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia (the inner and outer “lips” that surround the vagina)
  • Type 3 – Sewing the labia together to make the vaginal opening smaller. This is called infibulation. The clitoris may be left in place.
  • Type 4 – All other harm to the female genitalia for nonmedical purposes, including pricking, piercing, cutting, scraping, and cauterization (burning)

Why is FGM performed?

There are some of the social reasons given:

• To keep the cultural identity of a community.
• To signal that a girl has now become a woman.
• To protect a girl’s virginity – to prove she has not had sex before marriage.
• To decrease a womans’ sexual desire.
• To prepare a girl for marriage. Once FGM has been performed a girl is seen as ready for marriage. There is a link between FGM and child marriage.
• To enhance men’s sexual pleasure.
• To increase a girl’s beauty.
• To follow a religious requirement (although there is no evidence to suggest that FGM is required by any religion).

Where is FGM performed?

FGM/C is mostly done in parts of Northern and central Africa, the Southern Sahara and in parts of the Middle East and Asia.
Some immigrants in the United States and Europe are also at risk, and some families may send their daughters back to their family homeland for the procedure.

What are the complications associated with FGM?

Physical complications:

Extreme pain: FGM is often performed without any anaesthetic. Girls can go into shock because of extreme pain and stress.
Severe bleeding: This is caused by damage to blood vessels. In some cases this can lead to death.
Risk of infection: An unclean environment (i.e. the use of blades that are not sterile and traditional methods for healing the wounds), may cause serious infections such as tetanus or even HIV.
Difficulty in passing urine and menstruation: due to fear of passing urine or damage to the urinary tract and/or reproductive organs.

Psychological complications

Anger at the person who performed FGM or arranged for FGM to be carried out.
Emotional distress, fear and feelings of helplessness
Post-traumatic stress disorder: symptoms can include flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety and depression for a long time after FGM.
Sexual Phobia: resulting in fear and difficulties in having sex.
Feelings of not being a ‘whole’ or a ‘normal’ girl or woman may be felt by some girls/women because of FGM.
•Because the clitoris is so sensitive, a woman’s sexual pleasure is greatly decreased by its removal. This can have negative effects in a marriage and in sexual relations. However, FGM does not take away sexual desire. This is because sexual relations are more than physical; feelings such as love, passion and companionship are also important for pleasure.

What if a woman gives consent to FGM?

As cultural and societal pressures to practice FGM are so strong, it is difficult to judge whether a woman is truly giving consent. There is almost always the question of whether she is undergoing FGM because she wants to, or because she feels like she has to. This leads to the question: is it possible to separate the two? Similarly, because FGM is a taboo subject that is not openly discussed; it is difficult to ensure that a girl or a woman knows all the facts and has all the information about FGM before giving her permission to undergo the procedure.

That’s the reality of it all; he doesn’t care. I know, you really want to believe that he does and that your relationship ending has hurt him terribly, but even if he does care, he won’t show it. If he cared at all he wouldn’t have left in the first place. He’s not going to show up at your door and beg for your forgiveness, this is not a movie, that isn’t how it works. He isn’t the one that got away or your one great love, he’s a just a complete idiot; a total dick, probably wasn’t worth your time. If he can’t be mature enough to admit that you meant something to him, then screw him, you deserve so much better than that.

Left places (the sequel to Left behind)
