Kirk leans forward to inspect the field closer. His hand hovers inches from the surface and it REACTS, wobbling as if magnetized by his fingertips.

Of course, James “The guy who is half of my impulse control is not around” Kirk touches it. (x)

Let’s continue posting Star Trek: Mirror illustrations! Today it’s Kirk and the mirror

One might ask - why did I make Halka a snow planet if it’s not canon? First, I wanted to throw the crew in the worst conditions in the final scene, and having to spen hours in snow in a thin uniform serves this purpose. Second, all we have in the movies are summers and warm weather - a change of scenery would be interesting to see, plus we have some great locations to film winter. Although I don’t doubt if the Halka scenes were actually filmed they’d be made with fake snow and a green screen lol

…Also it was a chance to design some winter uniforms

take colorism seriously 🗣

stop being defensive abt it and accept the fact that lightskin ppl are universally favored over darkskin ppl. this isn’t conjecture—it’s a proven, prevalent, malignant AND VIOLENT structure of oppression that makes prey of already-vulnerable populations of black and brown folks. shutting down honest discussions abt colorism w claims that it’s “divisive” or “trying to police your identity” is what’s actually harmful to our communities. it keeps us from effectively identifying and dissolving prejudices and systems that actively uplift lighter skinned ppl while trampling on darker skinned ppl. as a lightskin person, you benefit from a construct that gives you a certain privilege, like dnt act like anyone’s attacking your identity, jus acknowledge that you have that privilege and quit whining. colorism ain’t abt you, it’s abt the vry real, vry ignored oppression of darkskin ppl across every culture. kno that, discuss that and take it seriously or you wind up doin nothing but contributing to it.

Medschoolmanic Presents: Brachial Plexus Made Easy!

The bane of all students who take anatomy seems to be the same: the brachial plexus. But never fear! I I found a link online that you can follow here that makes learning the brachial plexus incredibly simple. I drew out the steps themselves to show the process in color. Furthermore, I corrected a few mistakes within the presentation. Let us begin!

Step 1: Start by drawing two y shaped lines in the same direction. Feel free to draw them in either direction as it will make it easier to learn if you can draw it both ways. 

Step 2: Draw another Y shaped line in the opposite direction. 

Step 3: Draw an M connecting your initial two Y’s. This will also be an important point of reference when looking at the cadaver. 

Step 4: Draw an X and a dash

Step 5: Label the nerves roots (C5-T1)

Step 6: Label your nerve branches. Key is as follows: 

  • Mc: Musculocutaneous
  • Ax: Axillary 
  • R: Radial
  • M: Median
  • U: Ulnar

Some people like to remember the mnemonic MARMU for the brachial plexus branches 

Step 7: The rest of the brachial plexus can be split up into four groups of 3. Our first 3 would be the branches to C5, C6, and C7 that form the lateral thoracic nerve (LTN)

Step 8: The next three to be added are the following: 

  • DSN: Dorsal scapular nerve
  • SS: Suprascapular nerve
  • LP: Lateral pectoral nerve

Step 9: The next three nerves to be added are the: 

  • SS: Subscapular nerve
  • TD: Thoracodorsal nerve
  • SS: Subscapular nerve

Step 10: The last three to be added are: 

  • MP: Medial Pectoral Nerve
  • MBC: Medial Brachial Cutaneous Nerve
  • MABC: Medial Antebrachial Cutaneous Nerve

Step 11: Last nerve to be added is the Subscapular nerve

Step 12: The last step is to label your roots, trunks, divisions, cords, and branches, which I separated with a faint gray line. At this time, you’ll want to label your upper, middle, and lower trunks, the anterior and posterior divisions, and your lateral, medial and posterior cords. Some people like to remember the order from roots to branches with the mnemonic: Real Truckers Drink Cold Beer. 

All done! After drawing this out a few times you should get to the point where you can draw out the entire plexus from memory. The key to anatomy is repetition repetition repetition. Best of luck!

Neil’s clap backs in The Foxhole Court

  • “You’d better,” Neil said. “Put a leash on your pet monster or I will.”
    “A frightened child like you?”
    “Fuck you, cripple.”
    Across the room Kevin’s face went white. “What did you call me?”
    “I called you a deadweight has-been,” Neil said. 
  • Andrew’s smile curved wider. “Ohhh, that sounds like a challenge. Mother may I?”
    “Your mother’s dead. I don’t think she cares what you do.”
  • “Ouch,” Andrew said with a cold smile. “That’s judgmental.”
    “I’m not going to apologize for thinking you’re being idiotic.”
  • “Take a number and get in line with the rest of this team. I won’t lose any sleep over it.”
    “Don’t sleep. I’ll kill you.”
  • It was forever before Andrew answered in German. “That’s unexpected. Did no one tell you I hate surprises?”
    “What makes you think I care?”
  • “I will ask you only once to tone down that animosity.”
    “I can’t,” Neil said. “I have a bit of an attitude problem.”
  • “Palmetto State is a waste of his talents.” “Not as much as Edgar Allen was,” Neil said. Someone in the audience laughed, entertained by Kathy’s mouthy guest. “Your team’s ranked first? Congratulations and big deal. Maintaining a top position is far easier than starting over from the gutters. Kevin is doing that right now. He’s facing entirely new schools and learning to play with his less dominant hand. When he masters it, and he will, he’ll be better than you could ever have made him.
  • Everyone knows the only reason Palmetto qualified for this division is because of your coach.”
    “Funny, I’m pretty sure that’s how Edgar Allen qualified.”
  • Aaron looked at Neil. “When were you going to tell us?”“
    I wasn’t,” Neil said. “After everything I’ve put up with from you this year I figured I didn’t owe you any favors.”

Tips for keeping my apartment clean? Tips for motivating myself to finish unpacking?

Apartment Cleaning 101

1. Make a list. Start by making of list of everything that needs cleaning in your apartment. I like to let lists like these sit out for a day or two, to adjust and add to them as need be. Give yourself a couple days to brainstorm, and try to prioritize chores based off of how time consuming they are.

2. Chore frequency. You’ll notice that some chores become more time consuming the longer you wait to do them, while others do not. Dishes are a prime example- I try to get them done twice a day at least. Vacuuming my apartment, on the other hand, always takes around the same amount of time, so it doesn’t really matter when during the week I do it, just so long as I get it done! 

3. Chore schedule. Basing this next bit off your findings above, plan your “chore schedule”. If you live with roommates and will be dividing chores, you may find it easiest to actually create a hardcopy of a schedule. You’re looking to divide this into three categories:

  • Chores that need to be done every day: Dishes for example
  • Chores that need to be done once a week: Vacuuming or mopping for example
  • Chores that need to be done once a month: Cleaning your refrigerator or closet for example

If you are a pet owner or live with multiple people, you may need a fourth category called “chores that need to be done twice a week”. Things like changing the cat litter or doing a load of laundry.

 4. Divide and conquer. I’m adding this bit for those of you who live with roommates and/or significant others. You can look at doing chores two different ways:

  • Every man for himself (you do your own dishes, your own laundry, you’re responsible for vacuuming your room or living space)
  • Division of labor (my boyfriend cooks, so I do the dishes)

Find a happy medium for all parties concerned, especially if you’re splitting chores with someone you’re sleeping with. I do think it’s important to take into account each person’s business in terms of their work and school load. On days when my boyfriend works eleven hours, I don’t mind picking up the slack and vice versa.

5. Cleaning floors- the complete guide.

  • Wooden Floors
    • Vacuum
    • Mop
    • Allow to air-dry
    • Use a hardwood cleaner (like Bona) to get any difficult spots out
  • Tiled Floors
    • Vacuum
    • Mop
    • Allow to air-dry
    • Use a bleach-based cleaner (like Clorox) to get any difficult spots out.
  • Carpeted Floors
    • Vacuum (use the vacuum’s highest setting)
    • Use an all-purpose cleaner (like Meyer’s) to get any difficult spots out.

6. Mopping. Forget about mixing your own bleach-based chemicals and using one of those raggedy anne mops. Get yourself a Swiffer Wet Jet to save yourself some serious time and headache. Buy the generic brand pad refills for a fraction of the name brand price!

7. Vacuum. You’ll make your life 100x easier if you find yourself a semi-expensive vacuum that doesn’t require vacuum bags. This is my vacuum and I love it. 

8. Wood floors vs. Carpet floors. I personally prefer hardwood floors because they just have a nicer “foot feel” than their counterparts. However, they do require more upkeep than carpet floors, because you can actively feel them getting grotty as your week progresses. Thick carpet is more time-consuming to clean, but you can go two weeks without properly vacuuming and nobody will be any the wiser because the grime just blends in. Disgusting but true.

9. Scented garbage bags. Literally cost the same as regular garbage bags, but help you trash smell fresher for longer. I like to wrap any disregarded food bits (chicken bones, rotten vegetables, etc) in a plastic garbage bag before throwing them in my trash, and this really makes a difference.

10. Kitchen countertops. Unless you’re butchering meat in your apartment, plain old soapy water is the best countertop cleaner. I try to clean my countertops multiple times throughout the week, but sometimes I’m in a rush and only get to it once a week.

11. Washing dishes. I’ve tried lots of name brands and generic brands, and in my opinion the longest lasting and best bang for it’s buck is Dawn dish soap. I’m partial to their Caribbean Escapes which make your kitchen smell like a tropical island. Remember to never leave your sponge sitting in the sink, a moist sponge is prone to all sorts of bad bacteria. If you have a dishwasher, run your sponge through it once or twice a week with your regular wash. 

12. Some cleaners to invest in.

  • Windex: Bought a bottle four years ago when I’m moved into my first apartment and still have about 1/3 of it left. Use to clean windows, mirrors and sliding glass doors. 
  • Bona: It’s the best wood cleaner ever. Ever!
  • Clorox: I currently own both the spray and the disinfectant wipes.
  • Meyer’s: Or some other multi-purpose organic cleaner.

I will do a post sometime tomorrow about unpacking! Hope this helps.

Cracker Jacks and kiss cams

Watch how your mind judges. Judgment comes, in part, out of your own fear. You judge other people because you’re not comfortable in your own being. By judging, you find out where you stand in relation to other people. The judging mind is very divisive. It separates. Separation closes your heart. If you close your heart to someone, you are perpetuating your suffering and theirs. Shifting out of judgment means learning to appreciate your predicament and their predicament with an open heart instead of judging. Then you can allow yourself and others to just be, without separation…
