blackboyjoy: ovenroastedtwerkey: fandom-star: goawfma: there is no reason good enough to arrest a 6 year old, this is purely racist WHAT THE FUCK WHAT KIND OF THREAT DO YOU EVEN MANIFEST THAT SIX YEAR OLD CHILD HAS TO YOU TO EXCUSE THIS??? THIS IS FUCKING DISGUSTING AND PEOPLE ARE FUCKING MONSTERS FOR DOING THIS/IGNORING THIS/EXCUSING THIS Imagine being such a punkass little bitch that you arrest a kindergartener for throwing little baby hands. Highly recommend this book for those concerned about the treatment of Black girls in educational institutions. Try searching for it on Bookshop.org and help support local bookshops instead of buying from Amazon. Even better if you can find a Black owned bookshop online and buy direct from them. ADDITIONALLY: Contact your local school board and ask if the public school contracts with local police departments for their school resource officers (SROs). Demand that they terminate their contract and redirect resources plan a better way to serve their students. Minneapolis public school board did this last week. : blackboyjoy: ovenroastedtwerkey: fandom-star: goawfma: there is no reason good enough to arrest a 6 year old, this is purely racist WHAT THE FUCK WHAT KIND OF THREAT DO YOU EVEN MANIFEST THAT SIX YEAR OLD CHILD HAS TO YOU TO EXCUSE THIS???

Additionally, adjust your ISO to the highest number (mimics the film used for very low light and low speed images) And set your shutter speed to the longest time possible (on my phone it’s 10 seconds). Leave your focus settings on Auto, and if your phone camera has a timer option, turn that on (five seconds is generally enough). Plan your shot first, then find a place to set your phone down so you can get the image you want. The less light pollution, the better; you’ll pick up FAR more stars in your picture. Once you know what you want to shoot, tap your screen to “focus” it, then hit the button to take the picture, set your phone down, and back away from the “tripod”. Don’t touch your phone for a good 15 seconds, just to be sure. You will not be disappointed in the results, let me assure you. Not even a little bit. @tamberland THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I’VE EVER LEARNED : angelfire115: zetarays: angeredthoughts: nobodybetterhavethisoneoriswear: polyglotplatypus: polyglotplatypus: im very grateful for the lessons in photography i was taught in stop motion class because just now they made it possible to photograph the stars with my phone in spite of the camera usually not detecting the light of stars because theyre so dim,,,, enjoy these shiny motherfuckers ok so if everythings normal, your phone camera should have a manual mode (sometimes called pro mode). in it, change the settings of the shutter lag to 20 seconds, then put the phone down on some stable, plane surface and press the photo button (usually when using your camera, the volume buttons can be used as photo button) and let the phone still for the whole 20 seconds.  (basically the problem with most cameras is that they dont have a very good light sensitivity in the dark, however that doesnt mean they cant detect it at all. the longer the shutter is open, the more light your camera takes in and the more burnt/light your pic will be, so in (literally) dark situations, make the shutter lag longer to get all that light you need! also i said 20 seconds but really you can make it shorter or longer depending on what kinda stuff you want for your stars) Yes this!

kaylapocalypse:  ok  so i know what you’re thinking “oh i remember that scene i don’t need to click on the video to recall it”. But you should. Like… if you’re anywhere near your mid-twenties, chances are that you watched shrek (1) when you were a kid and maybe a few times again in your late teens, but your memory absolutely doesn’t do it justice. The comedic timing through this whole movie is insane. Also, the fact that the animation style is aging literally just adds to the hilarity instead of poorly dating it. The nuance of every gesture is so well done and specific.  I am literally convinced that this movie is a masterpiece and that will be historically relevant maybe 100 years from now as a perfect time capsule of our culture. This scene in particular illustrates it especially well; particularly for being only like 1 minute long. Highlights/Breakdown The timing in the way Robin says savior and the way he says beast.  the character solidifying disregard and disrespect of “Please! Monster!” Fiona’s sheer brute strength when she pokes him in the shoulder so hard it spins him around–strength that he disregards which is why hes surprised as hell when he gets his ass beat Just the entire french accent that isn’t even a good french accent at all. The accordion man in the tree, the prop bushes. that one of the prop bushes falls down to reveal that its a wood cut-out subtly in the background  Shrek and fiona watching with horror as he begins his song. Donkey never cracking his excited smile, fully immersed in the Lore™; which is actually part of a longer running joke through the film which is that occasionally when certain characters do things would be reacted to poorly irl, the surrounding characters react like you would if you saw that irl not like characters in a story. Like instead of getting drawn into the lore of their circumstances they just stand there, staring like “yikesssss” shrek’s exhaustion and impatience when the song goes into the “saucy little maid” bit.  “what hes basically saying is he likes to get paid.”  the chaos of that statement. combined with shrek and fiona having a eye contact conversation above the performance, exchanging “wtf” gestures.  When the song escalates into a dance fight, Shrek’s exhaustion turns into general mounting amusement like “wow is this really turning into a dance fight. wow hes really snapping in unison” which is additionally apart of the above long running joke Fiona interrupting robin with a kick. the fuckin sound his head makes when it hits the rock.  The fight after isn’t as dynamic timing wise, just a classic animated fight scene but that song though. *kisses fingers like a chef* Watching this does give me an appreciation for 2D animation though because say what you will but Cinderella has aged a lot better than Shrek in terms of visual quality.With 2D you get fairly consistent quality. With old 3D you get uncanny valley nightmares.: kaylapocalypse:  ok  so i know what you’re thinking “oh i remember that scene i don’t need to click on the video to recall it”. But you should.

princessnijireiki: corvussy: saturnineaqua: ghettablasta: Kayla Renee Parker shared her story of how she managed to expose her racist teacher who appeared to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. “She wears a safety pin so everyone knows she’s an ally for minorities. Her cover photo has a Black power fist. She regularly discusses her love for the Obamas, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and her admonishment for this current administration.” However, it wasn’t enough to hide her racism.  It all started with a simple question from a test. The question stated,  “Historical research on African-American families during slavery shows that: A) Family ties weren’t important in African cultures where the slaves ancestors originated; consequently, family bonds were never strong among slaves. B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners. D) Most slave families were headed by two parents. So, obviously, Kayla chose C. And it was incorrect. According to the teacher, the right answer was D. The argument started when Kayla wrote her an email and respectfully provided the professor the evidence, even directly from their textbook. “However, my Professor continued to argue that family bonds were not destroyed and that 2/3 of slave families were headed by two parents.” The teacher cited Herbert Gutman, sociologist, who died in 1985 and surely took part in the whitewashing of Black history. When they met to discuss the subject in person the professor gave Kayla books to read adding such statements as, “This book would be good for you to read. I believe it’s $6 so I could buy it for you if you’d like.” The stated that she spent her whole life fighting for minorities and something like “I’ve got Black friends.”  When the girl was proving her opinion, she heard more comments as, “You’re talking to someone who has spent their entire life fighting for people of diversity and marched with my Black brothers and sisters.” As the result, the teacher asked Kayla to lecture the class on the topic and that was her fatal mistake. Kayla took all her courage and made a presentation on the topic she was passionate about. She defended Black people and Black history. Here’s her presentation. That was the point where the story should end, but NO. The professor obviously forgot about privacy settings on Facebook and posted offensive comments about Kayla. The professor’s last words to Kayla were: This time The University of Tennessee stood up for the student. In July the teacher officially retiring from the university. This is fucking insane. The last paragraph of kaya’s story is everything: To my Professor, I forgive you for robbing me of my focus last semester. I forgive you for calling my Father, a graduate of Yale Medical School, “educationally challenged.” I even forgive you for threatening me. However, I do not forgive you for being willfully ignorant to the subjects you teach students. I also do not forgive you for claiming to be an ally. An ally is so much more than wearing a safety pin. It also requires that you listen to the needs of Black people and respect the issues that we raise. When a Black student raises a concern over the way you are portraying her history, referring to all you’ve done for Black people doesn’t change the fact that you’re portraying slavery as some kind of slavery lite. As an educator and as an ally, you are not expected to know everything but this does not abdicate you from the responsibility of always continuing to learn- even from your students. Additionally, if you wanted to actually help Black men and women, you’d value our words. Unfortunately, your actions simply mirror how America values Black people in today’s society. This Black girl is a hero who overcame her fear and faced her teacher defending Black people and Black history.  #StayWoke #BlackPride #StopRacists this is why…white women…cant teach black people, or people of color as a whole. White supremacy has a long history of setting up white women to destroy people of color namely black and native people) via education.  I was going through my old likes and decided to see if there was any updates in this story. The professor was arrested for assaulting Kayla in a grocery store but the charges were dismissed by a judge on the condition Morelock has no further contact with Kayla I couldn’t find any more recent news on Kayla than what was said in the second link, but I sincerely hope she wasn’t in any way negatively impacted because of the situation with Morelock, especially since the second link says there were multiple other faculty members that defended Morelock… this is why I do not and never will like white educators. Morelock also continues to post about Kayla on her public Facebook, but (probably for ongoing legal reasons) still can’t or won’t name her directly. You can’t underestimate people’s hatefulness & the depth of their vindictive and petty fixations out here— even & especially people in a position of power over you with the potential to harm you, “ally” or no. And Kayla seems to be doing well! Her FB page says she became a Director at Amnesty International, and has just moved forward to become a Canvass Director for Care.org. Folks will try to block your blessings and drag you down to their hater-ass level in the mud, but you gotta fight & keep on shining. ☀️ : kayla renee Follow @kaybaeparker Long story short, I got my racist Professor fired mid semester after she tried to sabotage me.

B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners. D) Most slave families were headed by two parents. So, obviously, Kayla chose C. And it was incorrect. According to the teacher, the right answer was D. The argument started when Kayla wrote her an email and respectfully provided the professor the evidence, even directly from their textbook. “However, my Professor continued to argue that family bonds were not destroyed and that 2/3 of slave families were headed by two parents.” The teacher cited Herbert Gutman, sociologist, who died in 1985 and surely took part in the whitewashing of Black history. When they met to discuss the subject in person the professor gave Kayla books to read adding such statements as, “This book would be good for you to read. I believe it’s $6 so I could buy it for you if you’d like.” The stated that she spent her whole life fighting for minorities and something like “I’ve got Black friends.”  When the girl was proving her opinion, she heard more comments as, “You’re talking to someone who has spent their entire life fighting for people of diversity and marched with my Black brothers and sisters.” As the result, the teacher asked Kayla to lecture the class on the topic and that was her fatal mistake. Kayla took all her courage and made a presentation on the topic she was passionate about. She defended Black people and Black history. Here’s her presentation. That was the point where the story should end, but NO. The professor obviously forgot about privacy settings on Facebook and posted offensive comments about Kayla. The professor’s last words to Kayla were: This time The University of Tennessee stood up for the student. In July the teacher officially retiring from the university. This is fucking insane. The last paragraph of kaya’s story is everything: To my Professor, I forgive you for robbing me of my focus last semester. I forgive you for calling my Father, a graduate of Yale Medical School, “educationally challenged.” I even forgive you for threatening me. However, I do not forgive you for being willfully ignorant to the subjects you teach students. I also do not forgive you for claiming to be an ally. An ally is so much more than wearing a safety pin. It also requires that you listen to the needs of Black people and respect the issues that we raise. When a Black student raises a concern over the way you are portraying her history, referring to all you’ve done for Black people doesn’t change the fact that you’re portraying slavery as some kind of slavery lite. As an educator and as an ally, you are not expected to know everything but this does not abdicate you from the responsibility of always continuing to learn- even from your students. Additionally, if you wanted to actually help Black men and women, you’d value our words. Unfortunately, your actions simply mirror how America values Black people in today’s society. This Black girl is a hero who overcame her fear and faced her teacher defending Black people and Black history.  #StayWoke #BlackPride #StopRacists this is why…white women…cant teach black people, or people of color as a whole. White supremacy has a long history of setting up white women to destroy people of color namely black and native people) via education.  I was going through my old likes and decided to see if there was any updates in this story. The professor was arrested for assaulting Kayla in a grocery store but the charges were dismissed by a judge on the condition Morelock has no further contact with Kayla I couldn’t find any more recent news on Kayla than what was said in the second link, but I sincerely hope she wasn’t in any way negatively impacted because of the situation with Morelock, especially since the second link says there were multiple other faculty members that defended Morelock… this is why I do not and never will like white educators. Morelock also continues to post about Kayla on her public Facebook, but (probably for ongoing legal reasons) still can’t or won’t name her directly. You can’t underestimate people’s hatefulness & the depth of their vindictive and petty fixations out here— even & especially people in a position of power over you with the potential to harm you, “ally” or no. And Kayla seems to be doing well! Her FB page says she became a Director at Amnesty International, and has just moved forward to become a Canvass Director for Care.org. Folks will try to block your blessings and drag you down to their hater-ass level in the mud, but you gotta fight & keep on shining. ☀️

filipinawitch: purple-monster-baby: geneticcardio: orion-rising: Always be vague. Say I think they’re in today or not until later. If they press say it’s company policy not to give out the schedule. Most companies do have this and even if they don’t how would a stranger know. Don’t give out specifics, they can get people injured or even killed. At my last job someone came up and asked when “Sarah” was working next. I didn’t tell him and then texted her a description, turns out he was an abusive ex who had been stalking her. Don’t do this shit please. Do NOT say anything along the lines of “they’re not in today” or “not until later” because you are confirming that this is somewhere the person in question can be found. NEVER confirm anything! My old boss told us a story of how, years before when she was a fairly new manager (I’m talking decades, she’s 64 right now), there was a man who came in and asked for an employee by name and said he was her uncle. She told him the employee’s shift started in a coule hours. He waited the entire time for her, and when she came in, he assaulted her and bashed her face into the counter. My boss saw everything. She can’t recall what he said, but he kept screaming until someone threatened to call the police. She told me that story after a man came in and asked for when an employee, who recently quit, would be coming in. I told him she doesn’t work here anymore and he said to me “Okay, well I’m her dad so if you see her tell her I’ll be across the street at the gas station.” He left and my boss IMMEDIATELY came out and scolded me for it, then told me that story. She gave me some advice on what to say or do in that situation: Don’t just deny knowing anything, deny the person asking. Example, “When is ____ coming in?” “You can’t know that information.” or “Can you tell me when ____’s shift is?” “Schedules are only for employees.” Additionally, saying “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” can usually work, it may piss them off but it can work. Continue on with the customer service. “I can’t help you with that, do you need help (with clothes, finding a product, ordering)?” or “Can I take your order?/Can I help you find (a product)?” If they persist, insist they leave the store. “If you’re not going to order, please leave the building.” or “I can’t help you, have a nice day.” and, if you can, leave. If you can’t leave, call for or help the next customer. If they still persist (by now they may be aggressive), threaten to call the police on the basis of them becoming aggressive and refusing to leave the premises. Some people will leave at that point, others stay. When the police get there, explain the situation but still do NOT confirm the existence of the employee they’re looking for to the police until they have been escorted out of the area. Regardless of if the customer know the employee’s name, description, or daily (not hourly) schedule, even if they look like the same race and claim to be family, you NEVER confirm the employee’s existence. The only exceptions are if the employee tells you themself they’re expecting someone to come in for them (ASK FOR A DESCRIPTION OF THE PERSON), and if you personally know who they are in relation to the employee. When anyone I know has to come in because I asked them to come in, I describe what they look like and what they usually wear. I go into deep descriptions, even including how they walk. You could literally save a life, guys. Don’t blindly trust your gut either and think “But they LOOK innocent” or “But they said ______” because that can result in someone getting severely hurt, or killed. I know I joked on this post before but seriously If youre in the US it is against federal law to give out anyones personal information (this includes numbers, names, and schedules) without writen and signed permission. Just say its against federal law and you cant give out that info without risk of termination - this will get 99% off your back the first time : @jaggies At Taco Bell. A man walks in, describes another employee, says she's his niece, and asks when she'll be there. The cashier helpfully tells him "She's in at 7!"

sockdreams: Sock Journal: Our Proudest Year Yet Every year we do a round-up of our rainbow socks for June, which we hold dear as Pride Month! In past years we’ve even branched out to suggest styles and combinations of styles which best represent the other pride flags, but this year we went ahead and made our own! Additionally, we’ve been rethinking our rainbows and adding exciting new variations, because whatever kind of pride you wish to express, we want to have you covered! Because we know that pride month is about more than rainbows, we created our own line of Proud Stripes after receiving requests for them last June. We started with four different flag stripes, and it immediately became clear that four wasn’t enough! Now we have seven different colorways and two different lengths, by popular demand! Proud Stripes in Pink Rainbow are based off the original Pride Flag designed by Gilbert Baker. Neon Pink/Neon Purple/Turquoise stripes represent the Pansexual Pride flag. Columbia/Rose/White stripes for Trans Pride. Black/Grey/White/Purple stripes make an Asexual Pride flag. Purple/White/Kelly stripes for Genderqueer Pride. Neon Yellow/White/Purple/Black stripes form the Nonbinary Pride flag. Neon Pink/Purple/Royal stripes represent Bisexual Pride. In fact we love our Proud Stripes so much that our Pride Month seasonal logo sticker currently features the pink rainbow stripes! Add one to your next order for free, but don’t wait too long - she’s only available while supplies last! Speaking of pink rainbows, this year we got inspired by the softer side of this favorite and versatile colorway. Introducing two lighter, retro-style rainbows: Pastel Rainbow and Sidewalk Chalk! Most recently we were inspired to bring in some vertical rainbow stripes, but then we thought we’d mix things up even further… in our new Dreamer Nocturnal Rainbows and Dreamer Laser Rainbows, you can decide if you want the full spectrum, all warm tones, or all cool tones! Since the full rainbow features one cool leg and one warm leg, you can buy two pairs (either two rainbow or one each of the warm and cool options) and have the option to wear them as all three configurations! Dreamer Nocturnal Rainbows feature our regenerated cotton yarns and muted color pallet from our Harvest Rainbows. Dreamer Laser Rainbows feature our high quality acrylic yarns, in the same bold, bright colors as our Radiant Rainbows. Of course, we’ve still got a whole array of our regularly scheduled rainbows and gifts for Pride to choose from, so even if our innovative new styles for Pride aren’t quite You, you should be able to find something that is! Just remember this one important thing…. we are incredibly proud of our amazing, unique customer base, and we wouldn’t change a single one of you. Happy Pride Month!

aur5: my colleges satire newspaper had an article about iasip and its so… Apt: Area Man Watches Always Sunny' in the Worst Possible Way by Julia Ryan It was revealed early last week through a conversation with a casual acquaintance that area man Doug Sherman watches It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but in the worst way possible. Casual acquaintance and generally good person Debbie Barbo commented, "When I met Doug, he seemed like an okay guy. But as soon as he started talking about It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a red light immediately went off in my head. My first thought was, "Uh-oh, is this guy actually the worst?' and the answer really depends on why he likes the show." She then explained her reasoning, saying, "Listen, I love Always Sunny as much as the next guy, I have the Pepe Silvia speech completely memorized and I will recite it, even when my friends and family beg me to stop. But like... If he even mentions 'The D.E.N.N.I.S. System, it's all over." According to sources close to Doug, he frequently talks about how "[the writers] aren't afraid to do anything, dude. They'll do anything, it's crazy. It's like, they'll just show them doing terrible shit, like they'll kill a hooker and it's totally whatever because they're just rally bad people. It's sick!!" Those close to Doug noted that, while they need to skip the really terrible episodes of Always Sunny, Doug doesn't need to. In fact, Doug almost exclusively watches 'Mac is a Serial Killer,' and Mac Fights Gay Marriage' the most cringe inducing episodes of the series. "Dude, it's funny because, hes like so gay. No, dude that's not what I meant, I'm just saying like... Whatever. No, its like, he keeps harassing that girl because she used to be a dude and it's funny because he's like gay. It's hilarious!" Additionally, Doug's only criticism of the show is that he doesn't like Dee because he thinks shes "naggy." Doug's mother commented, "I love Always Sunny and I love my son. I've been a fan for 12 years and 22 years respectively. But if I have to listen to my son talk about how Always Sunny fights back against PC culture, I'm gonna kill him and then myseli in end us both, I swear to god." aur5: my colleges satire newspaper had an article about iasip and its so… Apt

homojabi: [pictured is an image of text that reads: Question: if I see someone pull off a Hijab, what should I do? I know there are reasons they are worn so I want to know if i should stand in between them and who did this, should i protect them from view somehow, or something else? This has been happening a lot so I feel it’s something everyone needs to know.] Several people have recently asked me to respond with what action you should take if you see someone’s hijab forcibly removed or if you see a hijabi/Muslim being harassed. Here are some of the basics: If a hijabi has their hijab forcibly removed and the attackers leave, cover them. If you’re wearing a jacket or you have a scarf or some other article of clothing, you should give it to them so they can cover themselves. This is definitely the action that I would prefer before anything else. Shielding them from view if you don’t have anything that you can give them is another option, or asking “What can I do to help you?” (because I’m sure every hijabi reacts differently to this kind of thing) is also a good response. After this, if you’re willing and they want you to (again, make sure you ask), you can assist them somewhere like a bathroom, a store, their car, etc. so they can get to a safe space and fix their hijab/call a friend/etc. If a hijabi has their hijab forcibly removed and the attackers don’t leave, there are several possibilities. Obviously you shouldn’t do nothing. A lot of the times, attackers will stop if someone else gets involved especially if you are with a group of people but also even if you’re just by yourself. This is a link to a YouTube video of a social experiment where one person forcibly removes someone’s hijab. Despite that there was no real threat, everyone who reacted did so in a way that I would suggest doing. Standing up for them from a distance that you feel safe doing so (because you obviously can’t disregard your own safety) does makes a difference. Saying something like “leave them alone” “what are you doing” “stop doing that” “don’t do that” “don’t touch them” etc. are all perfectly acceptable things to say in the moment. Again, giving them something to cover themselves with if you have something is always a good thing to do. In situations where it has not yet escalated to someone’s hijab being forcibly removed, gauge the situation. Here is one graphic that illustrates what to do if someone is yelling islamophobic things at a hijabi/Muslim. If you are not sure if something is going to turn into harassment but you’re worried it might, simply staying with the hijabi/Muslim and making sure they aren’t along is good too (this is a link to one story in particular that is a really good example of this). Whatever you do: do not just walk away. Do not just assume that someone else will stop or that the hijabi/Muslim can handle it on their own. Walking away in this situation makes you complicit in islamophobia and islamophobic hate crimes. Your reaction says just as much about you as it does about the person forcibly removing someone’s hijab or harassing them. Another thing: I would not recommend calling the police unless the situation is particularly violent (if the hijabi/Muslim is physically harmed, bleeding, not responding, etc. then don’t hesitate to call, of course) and/or if it’s absolutely and completely dangerous for you to do anything else. Most of the time the police are just as islamophobic as our attackers and will not do anything to help us or will make it particularly difficult for us after they do. If you have a friend who observes hijab, make sure to ask them what they would like you to do if this ever happens. I’ve seen a lot of people say that they always carry a scarf with them in case they’re ever in this situation, and I don’t think that’s a bad idea. Additionally, don’t be afraid to ask in the moment if you can as well. Again, be mindful of your own safety and discomfort, but please make sure that you are mindful of hijabi/Muslim folks’ safety and discomfort too. That really makes all the difference. : littlepumpkinprincess Question: if I see someone pull off a Hijab, what should I do?

I’m so glad that target doesn’t give a fuck about social “norms” and came to the game with no fucks about who it offends or if they lose business. Its beautiful. It’s different. Its brilliant. I’m all for it. My boyfriend works for target and they’re a really good.company to their employees too. Yay target! Target is like Walmart but with good morals 🙌🙌 what i like about target is that a few years ago when they got in trouble with the LGBT+ community for donating to conservative politicians, instead of just apologizing they actually hired a whole new team to oversee their political donations. additionally, they began to fully come out in support of the LGBT+ community and started making very public campaigns for LGBT+ rights and whatnot. instead of doing what many people do and weakly apologize, they fully acknowledged they were being problematic and wholeheartedly began to become better They also hire convicted felons who’ve served their time and people who are and look “abnormal,” ranging from mental and psychical disabilities to teenagers with dyed hair / piercings. They’re also trans-friendly. This is their company policy, and they follow completely in here in NY. In one of their mor recent ads where I’m from, they’ve not only got a boy playing with barbie dolls, but the girl they’re using to advertise some of their toys has Downs syndrome.

mrsjohns-witchcraft: “Set my *ss on Fire!” Productivity and Anti-Procrastination Spell (with Ginger) Three orange candles Yellow string Fresh Ginger  I’m the worst procrastinator under the sun, so a productivity spell for me has to be powerful - hence the ginger :) lemon oil just won’t do the trick… 1) Use orange candles for energy and determination. String them together with a yellow string, envisioning your success and concentration. Additionally I like to write what I want on a piece of paper and tie it to the candles. 2) Make three knots, saying the words: My Wish, My Power, My Future.  3) Cut open your fresh ginger and run it over the top of the candles, thus rubbing in its essence. I say “Set my ass on fire!” to every candle (have I mentioned that I need my ass kicked… if you’re only a mild procrastinator, you might find a nicer phrase…). 4) Light the candles. Let the candles burn while you do your work.  5) Cut a few pieces off the ginger and pour boiling water over it to make ginger tea (if you don’t have any allergies). It’s refreshing and energizing. You can stir in honey, which represents industry and success, if you want to sweeten the tea (of course, stir clockwise). 6) Get off your ass and do it! :) : mrsjohns-witchcraft: “Set my *ss on Fire!” Productivity and Anti-Procrastination Spell (with Ginger) Three orange candles Yellow string Fresh Ginger  I’m the worst procrastinator under the sun, so a productivity spell for me has to be powerful - hence the ginger :) lemon oil just won’t do the trick… 1) Use orange candles for energy and determination.

teslamotorsblog: The rumored refresh for Tesla’s Model S sedan is now official, bringing a new-look fascia and adaptive LED headlights that hew closely to the design that first debuted on the Model X crossover late last year. The car is also getting a couple new interior finish choices and the a version of the Model X’s ultra-aggressive cabin air filtration system as an option, which promises to filter out “99.97% of particulate exhaust pollution and effectively all allergens, bacteria and other contaminants from cabin air.” It also includes the positive-pressure “Bioweapon Defense Mode” from the Model X. Additionally, the Model S now has a 48-amp charger standard — up from 40 amps — which Tesla says will enable faster charging when connected to higher-amp outlets.

meme-mage: A friend of mine, who, ironically enough, typically wears horrible smelling perfume, turned me onto a boutique Los Angeles-based perfume company named I Am Fragrance a couple months back. I am in LOVE with their “I Am Blessed” fragrance…it was my go-to gift for my aunts and cousins this Christmas. while it’s always a bit difficult to describe scents, I Am Blessed is sweet, yet floral and isn’t overpowering, but tasetful and soothing. I strongly suggest checking it out. Additionally, while I haven’t had a chance to try them yet, a number of their products have GREAT reviews.
