love lace leopard <3

I would just like to point out that I love what she’s wearing and NEVER in a million years could I pull it off.  I’d look great in it - for the 5 minutes after I put it on… after which I’d be completely covered in all sorts of permanent staining goop: lip gloss, olive oil, baby drool, hand soap… the list goes on.

My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

“give your daughters difficult names. give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. my name makes you want to tell me the truth. my name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.” - Warsan Shire

#PrettyPeriod

Never trust anyone who tries to give u a nickname instead if learning to pronounce your full name.

PSA: because I keep seeing that shitty manipulated photo of Emma Watson on my dash. THAT PHOTO WAS PHOTOSHOPPED.  The original photo (with another from the same shoot, is from 2011 with Mariano Vivanco) are pictured above. Please don’t perpetuate this error. 

Deliberately spreading an altered image of Emma Watson which purports to show her breasts as a statement against threats of nude photo leaks is the height of hypocrisy and whoever did it should be ashamed. (x)

I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

In case you were wondering…

No, you are not “actually pretty good at driving while talking on your phone.”

No, you are not “good at multitasking while driving.”

No, you are not “good at texting without taking your eyes off the road.”

No, you are not “good at driving when you are just a little bit buzzed.”

Stop it.

Spread this. Share this. Do this. Yes.

Reblogging because…..yes. Do this.

Not what I usually reblog but holy chaos that’s smart

My parents made sure me and my sister had a passwords for this exact reason. I even still remember the password… 

there’s also something you can create called an ‘emergency phrase.’ something that seems completely innocent but it means ‘help me, I am somewhere unsafe and can’t talk.’
Common phrases can be like ‘so how is uncle [name that no one in your family has]’ or ‘did you remember to feed the [pet you don’t have]?’

My family has an emergency phrase using our old dog’s name.

Storing this in the memory bank for when I have kids.

We did this as kids. I definitely still remember the password. To sign us out in elementary school you usually had to tell the password to the office workers before they would even call us down. So freaking smart!

I warn you that this is not easy to watch…but I think it is necessary.

This is reality for so many people.

HOLY SH*T.  This was so… I started crying.

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
