So many people mistake being “Real” and being “Honest” with being an asshole. If you are saying things that you know will hurt someones feelings just because you “hold no cut cards” or “don’t sugar coat nothing” that doesn’t make you real it makes you a dick. You can be honest and not be mean. People been doing it for years. This has been a post
Maintaining Healthy Ends
When I first started wearing my natural hair out i noticed that a lot of my styles looked messy and limp, and I realized that this was because my ends were in terrible condition. Although damaged ends are less obvious on naturally curly/kinky hair, they can really affect the look of twistouts/braidouts or any out style.
Some people prefer to trim their hair on set schedule and this works for them. However, I have found that dusting my ends regularly is the best for me. It keeps my ends from ever getting to the stage where it causes more breakage to the rest of my hair.
What I do - whenever my hair is in twists (i.e. when I am washing it or doing a twist-out) I inspect the ends of the twists. If I see that there is significant thinning like it pictured above, I trim.
So far, I have needed to do this dusting about once a month. As you can see above, I never have to cut a significant amount of hair and I haven’t noticed any difference in length retention from doing this. If I find that my hair is particularly damaged, I will do a bigger trim to make sure any split ends are definitely gone.
Lmfao let’s talk about this.

Anti epilepsy pillows are pillows that you can breathe through in case of a seizure.
They save lives and are provide free by UK charity "Epilepsy Sucks UK"
Quote from the Charity website:
"THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
'Death from suffocation can result within minutes when a child or adult suffering a seizure becomes entrapped in an ordinary pillow which blocks their nose and mouth. If saved from death, oxygen starvation and brain injury may occur resulting in lifelong disability and dependency'.
Solution: Anti-suffocation pillow!
'Among 15 cases of Sudden Unexpected Deaths in Epilepsy that were witnessed in the community, difficulty breathing was observed in 80% of these cases, where 70% of patients were found in a prone position, suggesting that suffocation contributed to their deaths'.
Solution: Anti-Suffocation pillow!
'Frequent arousals caused by epileptic activity are one possible basis for insomnia. Depression or anxiety, which are common in epilepsy patients, also may contribute'.
(Lack of sleep is a well documented seizure triggering factor)
Solution: Reduce anxiety, fear and possible seizures with an anti-suffocation pillow!
'The main health risks come from the worry, lack of sleep and depression that caring can bring. Carers often have to fight and battle for the support they get and this wears you down. All this can lead to high blood pressure and stress-related illness'
Solution: Parents and carers have reported to us that they have slept better since receiving an anti-suffocation pillow!”
The charity are very near to winning a £5000 donation. It is an online vote with a login from fb, google + or twitter.
There are a small grass roots charity of volunteers and this would make a big difference to them

12 Foods For Boosting Your Brain Power
Studying for a big test? Rather than weighing your mind and body down with empty calories and junk food, eat smart with healthy foods that are known for decreasing your chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease, keeping your neurotransmitters healthy, and increasing blood and oxygen flow to your brain.
You can always stand to eat more vegetables, and you can never go wrong with broccoli, spinach, and other dark green leafy vegetables. For a quick snack, munch on blueberries, nuts, hummus, and dark chocolate. Oily fish, curry, and olive oil can be incorporated into a full meal for a truly brain-boosting meal.

I know a lot of you are in the middle of finals! I hope this post helps! It’s almost over soon. Hang in there <3
This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.
This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
in the movie a little boy recognises steve at the captain america exhibit. it’s my headcanon that a little girl recognises bucky when he goes to the smithsonian exhibit to find out who he really is
because little girls have heroes too
"You should tie your hair…
"Where’s my remote?"
"Did you change my channel?"
"Bring me cup of ice water"
"(a mash up of all your sibbling’s names) One of y’all come here and take this plate in the kitchen."
"If my job calls, I’m not here."
" Take something out for dinner"
"Did you take something out for dinner"

I don’t want to hear ANYTHING about my editing skills lol. Of course this video isn’t to discredit or cast negativity towards women who do have meaningful, platonic friendships with men! (Those married to their best friends, you know this video isn’t about you lol)
Female friendships are golden.
lol her Nigerian-ness gladdens my heart, I partly listen to her just to hear that brash accent when I’m missing home.
My relationships with the women in my life have been so important to me and all of our personal growth. We learn from each other’s mistakes, support each other no matter what in a way that is rooted in understanding of the similar obstacles we all face.
That’s a large part of my artwork and why I only really paint my friends/women who inspire me. It is also my way of showing my support of them and immortalizing the things I find beautiful and impressive about them.
Don’t ever sleep on those relationships. They are extremely valuable and important.
