Follow my butt on Twitter!
I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
So. The day has finally arrived!
I have discovered that the tumblr app for Android is a steaming pile of donkey shit. Also, after some initial issues with the touch pad, I am typing at a normal speed… ish.
So now I can be the asshole at the meeting who breaks out her tablet to “take notes” aka, play games and ignore everyone.
“Masterpiece fans will not be disappointed: Julian [Fellowes] has done another brilliant job,” Eaton wrote in an email to The Daily Beast, “this time, portraying the Downton family moving on from the tragedies of last season.”

Scientific Community Expresses Support for Kiera Wilmot
Below is a link to an article I found in Scientific American that expresses support for high school student, Kiera Wilmot, who was expelled and arrested when a science experiment went ary and exploded at school. Given that the same prosecutor who has now charged Wilmot as an adult with a felony, just a few days later dropped charges on a white minor whose violent actions led to a fatality, the story has an even greater air of misjustice.
If you can take a moment in your day, call the numbers in the article and lend your voice to the growing outrage over this honor student’s treatment for her intellectual curiosity.
okay, this is the cutest shit ever. dammit i cant stand it
OMG SHE’S ADORABLE!!!!!
I just died because my reproductive organs just self-ejected from my abdomen, crawled up to my face, punched me a few times with brass knuckles on and exploded with the intensity of a supernova star.
I’m surprised any of us have survived to be able to read this.
The first immigrants to Europe arrived thousands of years ago from central Asia. Most pre-contact Europeans lived together in small villages. Because the continent was very crowded, their lives were ruled by strict hierarchies within the family and outside it to control resources. Europe was highly multi-ethnic, and most tribes were ruled by hereditary leaders who commanded the majority “commoners.” These groups were engaged in near constant warfare.
Pre-contact Europeans wore clothing made of natural materials such as animal skin and plant and animal-based textiles. Women wore long dresses and covered their hair, and men wore tunics and leggings. Both men and women liked to wear jewelry made from precious stones and metals as a sign of status. Before contact, Europeans had very poor diets. Most people were farmers and grew wheat and vegetables and raised cows and sheep to eat. They rarely washed themselves, and had many diseases because they often let their animals live with them.
Religion infused every part of Europeans’ lives. Europeans believed in one supreme deity, a father figure, who they believed was made of three parts, and they particularly worshiped the deity’s son. They claimed that their god had given humans domination over the earth. They built elaborate temples to him and performed ceremonies in which they ate crackers and drank wine and believed it was the body and blood of their god, who would provide them with entrance into a wondrous afterlife called heaven when they died. Many wars were fought over disagreements about the details of this religion, each group believing their interpretation was the right one that should be spread across the land.

17 year old Leanna Archer turned a family recipe into an international company. Archer started a line of natural hair and body care products when she was nine years old. Her mother would make a hair pomade using natural ingredients from Haiti and a secret recipe passed down from her great-grandmother. After getting multiple compliments on her hair, Leanna gave her friends a few samples of the pomade and from there the orders started pouring in. Archer is now making history earning an annual revenue of more than $100,000 per year.
