I’m learning of more and more of my followers that suffer from anxiety and depression like I do.

This little cartoon person has been invaluable to me when I feel myself getting worked up.

An anxiety attack can come on really suddenly but sometimes we can spot the symptoms of one building up and this is when this little breathing person comes in handy.

Just imitate their breathing, make sure to watch it and count with the person.

It’s also very useful if you are already having an attack as this can stop you from hyperventilating.

"Women are described in animal terms as pets, cows, sows, foxes, chicks, serpents, bitches, beavers, old bats, old hens, mother hens, pussycats, cats, cheetahs, bird-brains, and hare-brains…‘Mother Nature’ is raped, mastered, conquered, mined; her secrets are ‘penetrated,’ her ‘womb’ is to be put into the service of the ‘man of science.’ Virgin timber is felled, cut down; fertile soil is tilled, and land that lies ‘fallow’ is ‘barren,’ useless. The exploitation of nature and animals is justified by feminizing them; the exploitation of women is justified by naturalizing them."

"Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable."



The Macedonian tomb of Agios Athanasios. (4th century B.C)

Usually, I try not to mention here much of the politics that surround archaeology in Greece, but it is pretty strange how the tomb of Amphipolis, and the Antikythera expedition have gained so much prominence in foreign media. Not of course that these two cases are of little historical importance, but in the past there has been a multitude of fascinating discoveries-especially regarding ancient painting-that have hardly gained any traction both abroad and here.

Combined with the fact that a number of archaeological sites and museums, pivotal to the cultural and financial life of small towns and less “tourist” cities, have been receiving no funding during the crisis, and the infiltration of these public spaces by private interests who in the past have damaged the sites during restoration works, or have received public funding that was never spent on the site, it’s evident how government policies still use archaeological achievements for cheap sensationalism meant to titillate nationalistic sentiments.

Government policies have been actively refraining from investing on creating a stronger market abroad on products of intellect regarding Greece’s rich heritage by actual Greek scientists, scholars and artists. And all this just to please private interests, which would rather regurgitate foreign models of monetizing cultural values that not only don’t work, but also treat the wokforce bringing to light this buried world in a condescending and patronizing manner.

The museum of Nicopolis, which I had presented here, closed down for the public recently because a portion of the personnel was laid off. Important museums and sites all over Greece have been remaining closed or unrenovated from time to time and even now because of political spite rather than an actual lack of funds or personnel. This policy damages the cultural growth of these regions and exposes them once more to the dangers of looting after a monumental effort on the part of the archaeologists to turn the citizens of these areas against cultural robbery.

"The story of Cassandra, the woman who told the truth but was not believed, is not nearly as embedded in our culture as that of the Boy Who Cried Wolf—that is, the boy who was believed the first few times he told the same lie. Perhaps it should be."

In her cover essay on silencing women in the October 2014 issue of Harper’s, Rebecca Solnit once again proves that she is one of our era’s greatest essayist – further evidence here and here. (via explore-blog)

Several minutes ago, Anita Sarkeesian posted this to her Twitter.

First response, a guy calling her a “cunt”, and the third is a guy linking to this image (VERY NSFW.)

Yeah, good job proving that you’re not sexist, guys.

Once again I do not support anita’s message in any way and agree with her on very few things but she in no way ever deserved death threats and harassment and a bunch of uneducated fucks harassing her every time she tries to say something.

Good job guys, you all proved how progressive you are.

Why do people do this? Always add the disclaimer that you absolutely totally do not agree with her at all BUT. Why does it matter in this context?

I mean, sure, I’m glad that you, unlike many people who disagree with her, don’t think she deserves harassment. That’s good. 

But what would it take for there to be a strong show of support for her that isn’t full of caveats about how you disagree?

And furthermore, what in the FUCK is there to disagree with her on? I mean, if she likes potatoes and you like carrots, then what the fuck ever. But how can you disagree with her analysis of misogyny in video games when literally every time she breathes, dudes show up to threaten to rape her and blow her up? Practically her entire life has become one long series of bullshit that proves her right at every turn. Fuck you if you don’t believe her. Fuck you if you don’t agree with her.

^ The bold. Saying you don’t agree with her is basically saying you are a Grade A misogynist.
I know a lot of people don’t agree with her ON CERTAIN GAMES/POINTS but agree with her in general.

i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him  this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked

And you know what.

Shout out to bisexual individuals who haven’t been in any relationships yet, or have only ever been in a relationship with one gender.

You don’t owe anyone any kind of explanation about your identity.

You are amazing and wondrously bisexual just the way you are.
