Ms. Parks is most well-known for her act of defiance on a Montgomery, AL bus on December 1, 1955 that changed the course of history. On that date, Ms. Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. She was arrested and fined. Four days later, in response to Ms. Parks’ arrest, a year-long bus boycott began. It ended when the Supreme Court ruled that segregation on public transportation was illegal. #Love it!
Ms. Parks, the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement,” will be honored by GRTC in a fitting tribute by reserving the first passenger seat on every GRTC bus on her birthday Thursday, February 4, 2016. Each of these seats will have a commemorative sign displayed on them, honoring both Ms. Parks’ legacy and her dedication to the Civil Rights Movement.
GRTC is also honoring local Black History-Makers each week during Black History Month. The following names will be displayed on bus destination header signs in February:
First Week: “GRTC Honors Arthur Ashe” Second Week: “GRTC Honors Bill Bojangles Robinson” Third Week: “GRTC Honors Douglas Wilder” Fourth Week: “GRTC Honors Blair Underwood”
my pal asked me if I might make one of my paper cut-out pictures of StarKiller Base’s radar technician, Matt. Sorry it took me a bit to get around to it… I had the weirdest notion while making the portrait and now I’m, like, 97% certain that Matt is actually Kylo Ren.

Imagine Matt the radar technician comforting you after a bad day
This is actually really cute! Can you just imagine? You, an irritated, tired and sad technician sweetheart having a bad day ever since you’ve got out of bed, maybe it all started with a burnt instant baking bread and next thing you know you’re cleaning up a huge mess in the central apparatus room and your boss lady has been a total bitch all through out and you’re just DONE. So you drag your tired ass somewhere quiet and empty and away from anymore bad luck but you ended up running into Matt the radar technician and he’s just sitting silly on the floor muttering curses under his breath, your gaze was quickly met with hostility and he’s glaring up at you. “What?” and you frown too; cause you’re not gonna deal with any sass. So you sit the fuck on the floor with him and let him know that his bitchy attitude ain’t gonna work cause you’re a hard ass.
Twas a little awkward tbh and while you just sort of sit there staring on the floor pondering on your shitty day and shitty boss lady. Matt the Radar technician elbows your shoulder, but softly— he’s trying to get your attention and he gives you this crumpled looking paper bag, you were confuse but you accept it anyway. It was those snack packs you can get in the canteen and even if it doesn’t look appetizing anymore you accept it and eat it anyway.
You ended up whining about what had happen to you that day, that your instant ‘just add water to bake bread’ somehow got burnt and the fact that you had to clean and fix a stupid ass room and you tell him that you think your boss lady hates you and is deliberately making your life harder. He listened, he doesn’t say anything, but you don’t mind.
The next day your boss lady is nowhere to be found and the higher ups decided to supply the workers with expensive instant meals, but the central apparatus room seem to have gotten worst, but this time around you weren’t the one cleaning up those sliced and diced equipment.
