Blogs

So, through no effort of my own a WordPress site I created for class project now gets a healthy amount of traffic, is linked on travel sites, Wikipedia, and a NY Times article. Until recently I never sent the link to anyone, but the person grading it and tagged nothing. It may have nothing to do with the quality of the site and more to do with the fact that I picked a topic other people think is cool. I’m actually tempted to go through it and fix any typos or awkward phrasing since it’s used a lot. I sincerely hope people doing school papers are guided to my sources (which are clearly cited) instead of citing me, who has very little background in art history.

ANYWAY, I actually update an earrings blog, which is a lot more esoteric as it focuses on the off-beat and is mostly visited by my mother. I feel weird advertising, but I like doing it and figure more readers will force me to come up with more dynamic and interesting content and refine my dusty writing skills. I am going for something along the lines of casual musings about adornment and identity with a lot of “hey, this is cool!”/jewelry porn.

LibGuides webinar at home on my own time. They are very nice over at Springshare, but this is deadly dull and telling me things tech support already told us.

Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot 

and im asking to all of my followers who see this post in your dashboard to please press play to this video, you never know when this is gonna be useful, PLEASE DON’T IGNORE IT.

This is one of the first moves I was taught in Krav Maga, and it is one of the most effective.

It took me about a half hour to get down with practice, but once you get it, it’s an intuitive movement.

Please pass this along, it will save lives.

Important

Please reblog this.

War Kitties in Hammocks

Carriers and other vessels got infested with rodents. So cats were not just moral boosters (which they very much were) they were also working members of the crew. Some have even been immortalized for surviving multiple attacks on their ships, etc. Military dogs have been recognized for the important roles they’ve played but I think cats kinda get lost in the shuffle of military animals sometimes.

This is an instant reblog.

OMG MAJOR KITTY IS SO CUTE.

I do wonder how those waffles came out.
