I made two ATCs last night at Boulder with my friend. I gave the Drop Bear (Koala) to Ron, who in turn made one for me, and I’m giving the octopus to Stephen Gammell.
Someone reblogged my JeeYoung Lee post, and removed my source link and block of text with a different (albeit better) source link (but that link was within MY source link). blah. whatever :|
We podcast about ParaNorman and episodes 3-4 of Welcome to the NHK.
Here’s the link to the podcast where I compare ParaNorman to Silent Hill, and am slowly starting to get into Welcome to the NHK :)
And Nick is awesome (check out the Kickstarter he’s involved in)
And Justique is made of pizza muffins and I want to devour her <3
So I have a cute little helpful thing
I made this a while ago and it just helped me so hey
I have this little index card box, and I have it for when I am need of something
So I have four sections, one for physical. So if I can’t sleep or if my stomach hurts or I have been having trouble with my energy level
I resort to there
I write on an index the title of the situation I need help with and then list what usually helps me
Whether its a medicine, thinking pattern or process, or whatever
And then in anxiety I put different meditations and some cognitive behavioral therapy info which both help
Then I have safety which is very important
I have a little card that one of my therapists made for me where she listed distractions, reasons for living, and your support group of people that know what’s going on that support you. I have helpline cards & numbers listed as well as methods I have to keep me from hurting myself
Then I have sad
Where I have put what to do when I have given up or am lazy and can’t do anything
So I have things to motivate me, such as cleaning (it’s a comfort to me), making lists, or just like using a fuck yeah attitude
Then for other sad moments I have little distractions that can cheer me up and take my mind off of whatever’s going on or relax me
The last picture is the little box and my mental health folder where I keep big papers with more in depth info (and less personalized) on this type of stuff that I get from nurses and psychologists n stuff
Okay well I’d really encourage people to make this because its nice and its been able to help me more than once
Also decorate it and put stickers on it. Stickers are cute
The White Apologist: “I’m so, so sorry for what my ancestors did to yours, man! It really breaks me down sometimes thinking about how despicable we were to you guys! Please forgive us!”
The Faux-Humanist: “Stop talking about race. We’re all just human.”
The Martin-Lover: “Yeah, but didn’t Martin Luther King say to judge people not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character! I have a dream today!”
The Lord of the Fee-Fees: “Don’t you understand how your comments about what SOME White people do are offensive to me and hurt my feelings? Not all of us are racist! By pointing out my “privilege”, you are spreading hate!”
The Wonderful White Friend: “I’m not racist, some of my best friends are Arabs!”
The Nigger-Lover: “Why can’t I say nigger? I saw it on the Boondocks! Why can’t I say nigger? Eminem’s a rapper! Why can’t she say nigger? What if she married a Black man? Why can’t she say nigger? What if he was adopted by a Black family?”
The Pea-Brained Peacemaker: “Maybe if you people weren’t so harsh and hostile, White people would want to listen to you? Try being a little calmer next time, why don’t you?”
The Silly Bitch: “I don’t care what you say, nigger isn’t a racist word. NIGGER.”
The Annoying White Feminist: ”I think our shared experiences as women are more important than race at this time, look at the bigger picture! Woman is the nigger of the world, and I have a right to say it, you colored women are just being divisive!”
The Reverse Race Specialist: “How come there are no historically white colleges? REVERSE RACISM!”
The Slave-Thrower: “Everybody was enslaved, not just you guys!”
The Fool: “I know you were fired from your modeling job because the casting agent said you didn’t ‘have the look’ and you were passed over for the job by ten other White models, but I don’t think this has anything to do with racism!”
The Colorblind Crook: “I don’t see color! There’s no difference at all between the races, we’re all the same deep down!”
The Bleeder: “Racism wouldn’t exist if you stopped talking about it. WE ALL BLEED RED!”
"The Bleeder" is also known as the "Morgan Freeman Effect".
i’m shaking because these are all really fucking true and i literally know at least one person to fit each one of these.
I’ve been guilty of a couple of these (pea-brain, colourblind, fool) when I was a teenager. I grew up in mostly white towns, and thought all black people were like what I saw on evening tv or was told by my father. I can actually pinpoint when I realized this isn’t true, some time when I moved to the nearest city, and it changed everything I thought was true, and the learning began :)
One of the most frustrating aspects of being a plus-size woman is the unwarranted “advice” you receive. But when it comes to plus-size workouts, listen to yourself first.
On December 6th, 1989, shortly before five ‘o’ clock and the end of classes before Christmas break, fourteen female engineering students were shot and killed at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec by a gunman who claimed he was “fighting feminism”.
The massacre stands as one of the most tragic hate crimes in Canadian history.
