Whoa, Katsucon and Ucon!

So, yeah, the first two cons that I will be attending this year are Katsucon and Ucon @ UCONN! :D

The first con, Katsucon, is located in National Harbor, MD and will happen February 12th to 14th! I will be going for all three days, with Friday being WWII England and Saturday being pirate England (and Sunday is Jean Kirschtein). This will be my first time going to Katsu and I am nervous but excited.

The second con, Ucon @ UCONN, is held on UCONN’s campus in Storrs, CT from February 20th to 21st. This is a small, free, two day convention that I like to go to mainly because it is in my home state and it’s a good chance for me to see a lot of my friends ;7; I don’t know just yet who I am going as but I will definitely be there!

So, if any of you are going to either of these conventions and happen to find me while out and about, come say hello! ^^

Hi everyone! If you are interested, I am doing a thesis on what health means to society. Health is a huge topic today especially for (soon to be) medical anthropologists like myself and this survey gives me the ability to start to understand how other people view, define and think of health. If you have a few minutes to spare, please consider taking my survey!
Thank you!

The United States Supreme Court has already ruled that this is unconstitutional and that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.”

If you know anything about the history of racism in the United Sates, and you are not horrified by the expression “separate but equal” (at the bottom of the third paragraph above), you probably shouldn’t be developing strong opinions in that area. 

Heather Linstad Appointed New Head Coach of the Connecticut Whale

The Connecticut Whale have appointed Heather Linstad head coach after former head coach Jake Mastel resigned Thursday night. Heather Linstad spent 13 seasons as the head coach for the University of Connecticut Huskies women’s hockey team, leading them to a 161-218-54 record. The Huskies also made eight Hockey East Tournament appearances, including two appearances in the WHEA Championship while under Linstad.
