Patchwork Heart and Silver Soul

This is my slightly more artsy/intellectual blog: photography, quotes, cool vocabulary words, poetry, plants, some sj stuff, art, etc. I run a fandom blog called The Lamb is Caught in the Blackberry Patch, and I also run a happiness/recovery blog found at hopefulstarling.tumblr.com. Finally, I'm a mod for the Buffy blog Imagine BtVS.

Using bright sheets of paper, Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya created a gorgeous, three-dimensional sculpture of a tropical fish.

Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope. 
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.

Self-immolating edition of Fahrenheit 451 [2013]

Elizabeth Perez’s concept design for an edition of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 features a strike-anywhere match set into the cover and a screen-printed striking surface on the spine, so you can use the book to set fire to itself. This Fahrenheit 451 design would make a great accompaniment to the asbestos-bound first edition.

I think this is necessary to post. I see a lot of people “saving” bunnies.

"*Bunnies are one of the most frequently “kidnapped” mammal species.*Mothers dig a very shallow nest in the ground that is easily uncovered when mowing or raking the yard. If you find a rabbit nest-leave it alone!!*Mother rabbits only return to the nest two or three times a day, usually before dawn and right after dusk. *To determine if they are orphaned, either place a string across the nest in a tic-tac-toe shape or circle the nest with flour. Check the nest the next day. If the string or flour is disturbed, the mother has returned. If not, take the bunnies to a rehabilitator.* A bunny that is bright eyed and 4-5 inches long is fully independent and does NOT need to be rescued!*If you find a bunny that does need to be rescued, put it in a dark, quiet location. Bunnies are a prey species and while they may look calm, they are actually very, very scared!”


Never knew this, keeping this for reference

As a student of Veterinary Medicine I can completely confirm this! Do NOT take them out of their nest unless you’re 100% sure that the mother did not come back for them after at least one day!

my teacher sent a student home today because the student had had an anxiety attack earlier in the morning and she said “if you have a broken bone, you don’t just keep walking on it and damaging it more, you treat it. Your mental health is the same. Health then school.” 

I was about to get really angry but it took a different turn than I expected
we really need more teachers like this

I’m just going to say this once

forgottendance:

because someone decided to co-opt my request for help into a demand that I erase demisexuality and all asexual symbols…

1) that’s bullshit. The fact that someone thinks they can tell me to erase demisexuality is the exact reason why I need to be giving it extra focus. 

2) Demisexuality exists as a valid identity. End of story. 

3) I don’t like AVEN, my philosophy doesn’t fit with it, there are some practical problems with the thing as well. However, AVEN was one of the first asexual communities, it is the main reason why asexuality has any visibility at all. It deserves historic respect if nothing else. Yeah, a lot of our symbolism - black rings, the triangle, the flag, the obsession with cake, the word “ace” originally came from AVEN. But more importantly, that came from the asexual community, and these are not exclusively AVEN symbols. As a community, we have the right to create symbols for our identity.

4) I’ve been informed that this isn’t fun. Well, I disagree. Asexuality is fun. Yeah, sometimes it sucks, but then I go and eat cake and everything gets better (sadly, i eat a lot less cake than i’m making it sound here). Ace Pride is important. We’re allowed to feel proud of our identity and show it off however we want. And, you know what? might as well have fun in the process. 

So, there it is. I’m just going to go make sure my presentation includes AVEN, and all the ace symbols, and lots and lots of information on demisexuality. we’re going to have lots of fun that day. 

And seriously? don’t erase demisexuality.

So we need an Ace beacon city.  Like a place where aces can move and know they’re going to be part of a larger asexual community and asexual culture.  We need our own Bohemia.
