It’s an old metaphor which first appeared around 1780 (I don’t bullshit you when I say it’s old) and I guess someone saw it in a book at some point, went crazy because it’s oh so damn hipster, and now all cheezy francophiles use it as their motto. Truly, I’ve never used it, not a single time in my whole life. And I’m a Diderot fan.
The first time I saw this, it was on tumblr and I was like : where the hell have they found this ???
Seriously, I never saw/heard it anywhere !
Had to share this blog post “The Day I Taught How Not to Rape” by Abby Norman.
Ms. Norman” another kid called, “Have you heard about that rape case in Ohio? Those guys got convicted. They have to go to jail. They are going to lose their scholarships. They were going to D-1 schools!”
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
Yes, you. The one who keeps messaging me about photoshop and makeup. This one is for you bud. A 100% natural selfie: no makeup, no filters, no “photoshop”. Straight out of bed and sick as well.
At first it didn’t bother me… Like who cares what one person thinks? But the more I thought about it the more I realized, it’s not what you think about me, it’s what I think about me.
So far, the only pictures I have posted have been with full makeup and perfect hair. (Not “photoshopped” but yeah thanks). So here’s a natural one. Not for you, but for me.
Because heck, maybe I like makeup because it makes me feel more confident - God forbid. But I also am learning to love myself for who I am. So guess what? I’m ok with my natural face. And now you can’t use it against me.
You are SO pretty hun! You look absolutely gorgeous <3
Thank you so much! I can’t even begin to say how much this means to me. From day one you have been such an inspiration for me. I really appreciate that you took the time to tell me this, thank you <3
“If there is no ups and downs, it means that you are dead”
I just saw this without the picture and realized the deeper meaning…
I will never get over this
life comes with ups and downs, otherwise you wouldnt know what happiness was
