Help me on my path to UCLA

I did not have the assets or stability growing up necessary to be able to focus solely on academics. I have always dreamt of being accepted to UCLA school of business and management. however that was simply not feasible under my circumstances.

I have had to do things such as working 45 hours a week at the same time as going to high school to be able to fund my aspirations up until this point.

As a senior in high school, applying to a four year university was simply not a possibility.

Regardless of the circumstances,I have placed immense priority in educating myself. And have gained experience along the way. Doing hours of research during any free time I am awarded with. I have devised two business plans which I believe could not only provide the success I have been yearning for my entire life but also provide economic stability necessary to graduate from college and continue on to university.

I have begun a GoFundMe campaign to raise the funds I need to put these business plans into full effect. I have already proven to myself I can run an online business and lead it to profitable status. Now it is time to do it in a scaleable manner.

Not only will these businesses (along with excelling academically) magnify my chances of being accepted to the UCLA school of business as a transfer, it would also allow me to help pay for my community college expenses, and university tuition.

Please help me achieve my dream to bring my potential to life. I refuse to allow any obstacle defeat my drive for success. And I refuse to allow my past, a variable that I had no control over, determine my future.

In the end I wish to use my influence and economic success for the good of humanity. That is my end goal.

One day I hope to have the ability to purchase my mother a home as big and beautiful as her heart. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that that is a goal I can achieve, or I will die trying.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope I have earned your support.

Hi followers! I wanted to ask you all a favor. 

This blog, and my corresponding Facebook page is first and foremost a place for me to educate new vegans, spread awareness and connect with the vegan community. But it is also an invaluable tool to gain supporters.

As some of you may know, my ultimate goal is to open a farm sanctuary with my partner (and likely a few friends!). While asking for likes and more follows feels a bit icky to me, it is also essential that I reach as many people as possible so that I have a support base when I start making my first steps to opening my dream sanctuary. 

So right now all I am asking is that you “like” my FB page, and reblog this post. I have made so many amazing friends and connections here, and I am eager to keep up that momentum. And to my loyal followers (new and old) thank you so much for your support over the years. I honestly couldn’t do all this without you. <3

on this blog,

you’ll not find ship war drama, ship policing, or ship hate. this is a place of empathy, education, encouragement, and kindness. while i may not share (or even like) your ship, i’ll not judge or shame you for shipping it. this is cuz, i recognize fiction isn’t reality and i support you, your ships, and your creations.

if you need anything turtledoves, i’m here for you with unconditional love. 

About V and Furuta, what if...

The “Garden” is actually the place where V educate it’s killers investigators in CCG ? They are all tremendously strong and seem to know something we don’t.

Furuta could have gone to the garden too ?

Furuta is almost as strong as Arima, but since it was not his role (orders coming from V) he let him get all the spotlight while doing spy jobs.

V helps ghouls when it seems humans (CCG) is having the upper hand (like with the tsukiyama operation) and helps humans when ghouls have the upper hand.

What if Furuta is a spy of the clowns inside of V and they don’t know of it. What if Furuta is actually the good guy here ?

BGF Man Crush Monday:: “I’m trying to shine a light on doing films that get people to think about the things we have in place: our systems, education, judicial, police brutality with Fruitvale Station,” he says. “I want to tell the contemporary black male experience today of those situations of how we’re treated.” ✍🏾💪🏾❤️❤️ #MCM

Elmer Samuel Imes

born 1883 - died 1941

place: Oberlin, Ohio

pre-doctorate education: A.B. Fisk University, 1903

doctoral institution: Ph.D University of Michigan, 1918

After finishing Fisk University, Imes taught mathematics and physics at Alabama Normal University until returning to fisk in 1913 were he was an instructor and earned an M.S. In 1915, went to the University of Michigan for graduate work where, in the laboratory of Harrison Randall, began to design and construct powerful spectrometers. Imes earned his Ph.D. (the second African American to do so in Physics) in 1918 and the next year he and Randall “published a signal work that opened an entirely new field of research: the study of molecular structure through the use of infra-red spectroscopy. Their work revealed for the first time the detailed spectra of simple-molecule gases, leading to important verification of the emerging quantum theory and providing, for the first time, an accurate measurement of the distances between atoms and a molecule.

In 1919 Dr. Imes married a Nella Larsen, one of the great poets of the Harlem Renaissance. They divorces in 1933.

The fundamental significance of the work attributed to Imes is well established in standard texts. Imes’ dissertation research was published Measurements of the near infra-red absorption of some diatomic gases, Astrophysical Journal 20 (1919), 251-276. The joint Randall and Imes paper is The Fine Structure of the Near Infra-Red Absorption Bands of HCI, HBr, and HF, Physical Review 15 (1920), 152-155. Imes’ work formed a turning point in the scientific thinking, making it clear that quantum theory was not just a novelty, useful in limited fields of physics, but of widespread and genral application. Imes may well have been far more known abroad than in bigoted U.S., but even the foreign physicists weren’t aware he was African American.

From 1918 until 1926 Dr. Imes worked as a research physicist at Burrows Magnetic Equipment Corporation after which worked as a research engineer at the Edward A. Everett Company until 1929. Also during this period he had four patents for his work. Dr. Elmer S. Imes returned to Fisk in 1929 to start Fisk’s A.B. program in Physics. It is should be noted that Imes was married to the well-known black writer Nella Larsen.

“I think there’s a difference between people of color experiencing everyday life and encountering all these microaggressions and trying to put up a good face at social events. And I think there’s also an element where because I consider myself an advocate as well of when am I ‘on’ as an advocate and when am I not? And so for me, I know I have different standards and boundaries than the average person should have. Because I purposely put myself in a place where I can educate people. But here’s the thing, you don’t expect everyone from a marginalized background to be your educator. It’s not fair.”

Editor, Geeks of Color & @beyondvictoriana creator Diana Pho and I spoke about the pressures to speak up as a minority in situations when some really UNCOOL stuff transpires. It’s not always one’s place to educate…

I’m very interested in emotions like sweetness, which have no place in the pantheon of educated concerns, and yet are very important to me. Sweetness is the opposite of machismo, which is everywhere—and I really don’t get on with machismo. I’m interested in sensitivity, and weakness, and fear, and anxiety, because I think that, at the end of the day, behind our masks, that’s what we are.
