Get out of my head!
Pray for me people. Cuz I’m highly upset right now. Got people spreading mess to my family about my GoFundMe to shame them instead of acting like grown adults.
oh my god!!!! *sends you love and wishes that the people doing this will suffer from itchy rashes*
LOL! Thanks for the laugh. I needed it.Reblogged from bakethatlinguist May 19th, 2013 4 notes #BTL's life
Everyone is missing the biggest problem here.
Fuck the ads. Fuck the links. Fuck the email stuff.
Yahoo explicitly forbids pornography and sexually suggestive material on their websites and all affiliates.
That means no more porn on Tumblr.
So I could potentially go into any tag and not see porn?
I willfully accept my new yahoo overlords.

In La Femme à Paris the author Octave Uzanne dubbed a woman’s clothing ‘her offensive armour’ - but, in reality, fashion seldom offers protection from the violence of the modern world. The clothing adopted when a woman is at her most vulnerable to attack - the heels, furs and jewels of evening attire - actively works against the idea of self-preservation.
Nick Knight sought to challenge this: born from a desire to protect his own two teenage daughters and inspired by the ‘Slutwalk’ movement of women reclaiming the right to dress as they wish without being seen to invite attack, Knight decided to address the notion of self-defence through a fashion shoot. For this, he chose to collaborate with two much-celebrated and empowered female fashion figures - model Lara Stone, and stylist Carine Roitfeld - to redefine the notion of ‘Power Dressing’ for the twenty-first century.
Specially trained for this shoot in the techniques of Krav Maga, a self-defence system developed by the Israeli Defence Forces, Stone defends herself in a series of scenarios whilst modelling a selection of Spring/Summer 2012’s finest fashions, selected by Roitfeld and captured by Knight in stills for V magazine and on fashion film for SHOWstudio. These films serve two functions - showcasing next season’s key styles, and offering instruction to women, a high-fashion ‘how to’ of self-defence.
Pushing the boundaries of fashion editorial beyond aesthetic, and countering the ‘Brutal Chic’ of violent fashion imagery that dominated in the seventies, Knight, Roitfeld and Stone offer a true vision of ‘Power Dressing’ for a modern and truly powerful woman.

I’m done writing meta on why I ship it, so please don’t add meta to my artwork. I figure all the work’s already been done, now all we need are some visuals.

fun prank; tell women they’re only good for romance, sex, and having children. and then laugh at them for wanting romance, shame them for having sex, and act like they have to give up all facets of their personalities if they become mothers

Languages ranked from easiest to hardest for English speakers - Infographic found here.
HAHAHAH i’ve tried to learn one from each group and i super agree. Spanish was easy, Hebrew harder, Korean painful hahaha
Japanese was way way waaaaay easier for me then Spanish. Why? Yo no se. I just had/have issues with it. But I think in the long run, it just depends on your leaning style and how much time you’re willing to commit to each language.Reblogged from languageek May 18th, 2013 5,167 notes #language learing
They’re posting links to my GoFundMe page all over their social media!!
And, my sis had a talk with my Dad since my parents won’t talk to me about my leaving IN TWO WEEKS for Japan. So hopefully, he’ll listen to her at least.
Good news is that I’ll be able to buy my ticket next week, but the bad news is that I still won’t have enough to survive before paycheck time at the end of July, so we will see what happens.May 18th, 2013 2 notes #prays #crosses fingers #BTL's life #i need a hook-up holla if you hear me
