If Aladdin worked in a book-store he would have sang “I can show you the blurb”.
Or “I can show you 100,000 worlds, if you read these boooks”
our hundred and seventy-six people were aboard the Sewol, which tragically capsized on Wednesday — one of them was 22-year-old Park Ji-young. She worked in the cafeteria, not as part of the crew. The ship’s communication officer announced to passengers that it was “more dangerous to move” than to risk a disorderly evacuation. Frigid water was filling the ferry’s lower levels, causing it to list hard to one side.
The crew didn’t stick around to help anyone else. It was Park who stayed behind to calm down frightened children and pass out life jackets. She didn’t save one for herself, and she told passengers that she wouldn’t leave the boat until every passenger was safely off and accounted for. "After saving you, I will get out," she reportedly said. "The crew goes out last."
"Park pushed shocked passengers toward the exit even when the water was up to her chest," said one witness.
I’m really sad about this terrible event and that this brave young person lost their life because of it, but it is SO important to note that some of the crew were really amazing and courageous people who did the right thing even though it meant losing their own lives. The captain is utter scum of this earth but this lovely human can be likened to an angel.
Oh duuude :D thank you :3
I wanted to share with you our Serbian traditional way of dying Easter eggs - no artificial colors or dyes needed.
Put any leaves you like on the surface of the egg and carefully place them in a stocking. Boil these eggs in water full of onion skins. The result are beautiful, earthly colors and interesting patterns.
*cis voice* well ur rude so u can forget about getting ur fundamental human rights
Tortall map scroll
I’ve never attempted anything quite like this so it was a bit of a shot in the dark, but I think it came out okay and I had to do it because I love Tammy’s books too much not too. It’s based off the Tortall map from PoTS for one of the UK editions. It’s entirely hand-sewn into cotton and for those who care, the border is double herringbone stitch (I think)and there are little glass beads in each corner and blanket stitch around the edge of the brown backing fabric.
So pissed off right now. We thought my nephew had school today, so I took him in. Half an hour later my mum calls and says that school starts tomorrow, not today. So I had to go and collect him and now look after him today even though I have a shit tonne of work to do (which I don’t feel like doing now I’m so pissed off). Affects this has had on my life:
1. It takes 20 mins to walk to his school, and another 20 to walk back. In total this wasted 1 hr 20 mins of my life walking there and back.
2. Woke up at 7 in order to take him to school when I could have woken up at 8 if I had known he was off.
3. Probably could have stayed at my boyfriend’s a day longer, as I am still on Easter break and the only reason I came back yesterday was in order to take said nephew to school today.
4. It’s fucked up my day and now I have to look after him.
Plus my mum laughed about it when she was telling me, which annoyed me a lot. It was on the school’s fucking website, and only one other kid and my nephew showed up today, so they must have told the kids in form time and classes. Fucksake.
I’m curious. What are the, say, top 5 things you associate with me?
Can be a tumblr user, a book, movie, character, actor etc.
Slavery built the Cumberbatch fortune, which at its height in the mid-18th century made them one of Britainâs wealthiest families, owning at least seven Barbados sugar plantations and a stately home near Taunton, Somerset.
" Cumberbatch has also revealed that his mother, the actress Wanda Ventham, had urged him not to use his real surname professionally, in case it made him a target for reparation claims by the descendants of slaves."
They knew, they knew where they came from, and still DO benefit from slavery white supremacy, and they don’t want to have to give that up, or what they think is worst, give back. I have no sympathy for him or his family. I hate his face, and see through this thinly veiled attempt at making an attempt at shredding light on the atrocities that his ancestors committed.
Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
(ETA: Seems you can only sign from the UK; definitely share if you have followers there!)
I’m pretty sure I have UK followers…
