Because everyone needs a puppy in a bow tie on their blog!
- peeta was abused by his mother
- his entire family died in the bombing
- he was hijacked and made to hate the one person he had left that he loved
- he overcame all this bullshit and lived the rest of his life with katniss and their two children
yet people still say “peeta is weak”
"I’ve had a lot of magic in my life."
“Tell me something magic.”
“When they were young, my parents met an American couple in a sunday school in Shanghai. Over the years, they kept running into this same couple, as they traveled through different parts of the world. So they jokingly made a pact that their firstborn children would be married. Then my parents had me, and the other couple had a son. I didn’t meet the man until late in life, when I was already deeply in love with another man. But I fell in love with him and we got married.”
“Wow, that is cool.”
“That’s not even the craziest part. Want to hear the craziest part?”
“My husband had three previous engagements. And the morning we met, he was cooking three eggs, and each of them had double yolks.”
holy shit dude
If you don’t know Alex, I suggest you read up on him. Because yeah, sure, any parrot can mimic, but Alex was one of the first to prove on many occasions that he understood the meaning behind the words he said.
With that in mind, just think about what he said for a sec. Alex had to understand on some level that death means leaving. That’s fucking mindblowing.
Alex also was shown to have the intelligence of a young child, anywhere from 3 to 5 years old. He could do basic addition and subtraction, and independently taught himself the concept of zero (something that most CIVILIZATIONS couldn’t do!) He had a vocabulary of thousands of words, some of which he made up himself, and had deep interpersonal bonds with many scientists and trainers, as well as other parrots.
Alex the parrot is basically the coolest bird ever.
animals are often smarter than you think. There is/was a gorilla they taught sign language to. And one day she asked for a kitten. they gave her a stuffed animal but she signed sad. She wanted a real one. She was allowed to choose one from a litter.
She named it All Ball and she loved it.
Except one day All Ball escaped from the cage and was hit by a car. And this shows you just how much animals can understand. They signed what had happened but didn’t think the gorilla would understand. But she started making weeping, howling/crying sounds and the signs for bad, sad, etc.
And then “Sleep, cat”. She understood death.
She’s had two kittens since then.
Animals understand more than you think. Depends on the animal, yes.
KPRC, a local news station in Houston, TX tweeted out a story about a 12-year-old natural beauty who was told by the private school in which she is enrolled to either cut her “wild” natural hair or face expulsion. As you can see from the photo above, I clearly had a problem with the way the tweet was worded.
There is no question that her hair is natural, but there is debate as to whether or not it is wild, meaning untamed. To many White-Americans, hair like hers, and like mine, is looked at as wild, untamed, unkempt, disheveled and in dire need of maintenance. They aren’t able to see that our choice to wear our hair naturally has NOTHING to do with societal norms, but everything to do with pride & acceptance of who we are. They don’t realize that it actually takes a LOT more to maintain natural Black hair, that Black females take the time to care for hair like this, and that when it is worn this way it’s because it was MEANT TO BE.
Just because her hair is NOT straight does NOT mean it isn’t TAMED. It isn’t WILD, it isn’t CRAZY, it isn’t something to be ashamed of or made to feel like it isn’t acceptable. It is NATURAL & got dammit it’s BEAUTIFUL!
it’s more than hair style
this child is suffering due to wearing her hair how it grows from her scalp and the racist that deem her natural hair, black, negro hair unacceptable.
so gather round white folks, you want to call your hair an afro so bad.
you want to wear dread locks so bad
you will never know the pain and stress of the losses you will take a black person with black people hair. Our babies are being expelled from school, we are having a jobs threatened, all the while white folks only want to claim the elements that they feel are “cool” for a few seconds while we, as a people suffer for being black 24/7.
In India, a snake protects two pups for 48 hours after they accidentally fall into a hole. At first it was thought that she wanted to attack them, but then noticed she was caring for the puppies. When rescued, the snake was released into a forest.
It is impossible not to share it with you.
that snake is going to snake heaven
I couldn’t help myself.
Neither could I
