not very good is it

Black history month day 22: Renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson.

Benjamin Solomon “Ben” Carson Sr. was born in Detroit, Michigan on September 18, 1951. When he was eight, his parents separated and he moved with his mother and brother to his mother’s sister’s home. Carson’s mother struggled with severe depression, resulting in several psychiatric hospitalizations and an attempted suicide. She was however very involved with her sons’ education, limiting their time watching television and requiring them to read and write book reports on two library books per week.

Carson had dreams of being a doctor since he was eight. He did well in school and scored very highly on the SAT for the Detroit school district. When it came time to choose a college, he narrowed the choice between Harvard or Yale, but could only for the $10 application fee for one school. He chose Yale after seeing them win a televised G.E. college bowl against Harvard. He received a full scholarship. Later he attended medical school at the university of Michigan and was excepted into the neurosurgery program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Carson was the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland from 1984 until his retirement in 2013. He was indisputably a pioneer in neurosurgery, his achievements including performing the only successful separation of conjoined twins joined at the back of the head, the first successful neurosurgical procedure on a fetus inside the womb, and the first completely successful separation of type-2 vertical craniopagus twins. He also developed new methods to treat brain-stem tumors and improved techniques for controlling seizures. At age 33 he became the youngest head of pediatric neurosurgery in the country. He has written over 100 neurosurgical publications and received numerous accolades, including over 60 honorary doctorate degrees, dozens of national merit citations, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States.

Underfresh-Sans Relationship Headcanons:

- He’s very “popular,” so when you’re out together he’s constantly being swarmed with attention & praise. It makes him really uncomfortable, so unless who you’re interacting with are close friends of his own or yours, he’ll be more likely to make an excuse to escape any social interactions with them.

- You kind of have to remind him every now & then that’d you wouldn’t mind having dates at a restaurant or even a fast-food place–you just, you need to eat. He doesn’t, so it tends to slip his mind a lot more often than not.

- At times he can get a little…odd. It’s usually when his grip on everything is slipping–he’ll just start jabbering on & on about different things you just can’t understand. Something about time travel & coding & anomalies–& then some else about a Void & parasite–it’s really scary. During these moments it’s best to just let him be until he can get it out of his system. It doesn’t take long before he’s back to his normal, radical self & after these moments are when he most often attempts to smother you in affection.

she is…flawless.

Ya know I was thinking of how she’d reply to this comment and I think it’d be different depending on which age she is when. Like younger/past Flaw would be like

meanwhile older/present Flaw would be like

The other day at work I was doing theatre checks (basically, I just walk from theatre to theatre making sure no one’s on their phone and there are no technical issues), and I walked into La La Land during the scene where Ryan Gosling is playing the piano in a restaurant but no one is paying attention. And I looked around and there was NO ONE IN THE THEATRE. Not a single soul had shown up to hear Ryan Gosling play.

Augh, so I thought I must’ve just slept funny on my arm two nights ago, but I guess all the skidding around my bike was doing day before yesterday (lots of loose gravel on the trails) meant I was yanking the handlebars around to try and correct, and I guess this is an old injury flaring up, which is apparently a thing that happens now. At least it’s just the one arm.

Don’t break both arms at the elbows, kids. It’s still annoying years later.

She was beautiful. When she looked at me uncertainly, her green eyes soft, waiting for a word from me. How could she not know?

Without waiting for my words, she came into my arms. I held her against my chest, burying my face in the top of her coppery hair. After a moment, I lift her head, just to kiss her lips.

“You look so beautiful tonight” I said, breaking the silence.

“Just tonight?” She looked at me doubtfully, as if her fears had materialized.

I could not help but smile "Not just tonight, you know that.”

“Still is great hear it from you,” she winked at me.   ~ Lysander’s pov.
