So that adorable little hipster up top is my little sister, and lately she has been feeling very sad. Currently she’s in culinary school, and for the past few weeks she has felt that she isn’t as good as the other students in her class.
Please help me prove her wrong! Like or reblog so I can prove that other people think she is talented and will make a great baker. I can only do so much being her big brother, so I’d like it if other people could show their support as well.
Many thanks from a big brother who loves his little sister,
Tell your sister she’s freaking good. God I’d love to be able to bake like that
I will! Thank you very much :D
This is wonderful grade A baking! She’s doing wonderful! xoxo Jane
Hey Theodore Roosevelt, remember that time someone tried to assassinate you, but you just laughed and proceeded to give a 90-minute long speech with the bullet lodged in your lung, where it remained for the rest of your life? Or when you tore up your leg after being thrown into piranha-infested waters while exploring uncharted Brazil? Or all those times you broke your ribs from falling off horses while doing bad-ass jumps? Or when you destroyed the sight in your left eye in a White House boxing match? Or that time you killed a cougar in a knife fight (seriously.)? And how the only way death could finally get to you was in your sleep, in the early morning on this day in 1919. Here’s to TR as the infinite inspiration for pure, condensed badassery. ;)
Theodore Roosevelt, October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919
“Death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake there would have been a fight.”
All of our presidents combined can’t add up to how much of a badass he was.
So badass that we had to name the teddy bear after him.
Also the Teddy bear was named after him.
When Anita Sarkeesian announced plans to do a video series exploring the portrayal of women in video games, she became the victim of a massive online attack choreographed by members of the gaming community who cast her as the “villain” in their online “game” to ruin her life. It did not go well for them. But for Anita, things ended up going very well indeed.
You definitely want to watch the whole thing, but here are some highlights: at 1:00 she talks about why she loves video games, at 2:02 just try to imagine yourself in her shoes, at 3:45 she sticks the people attacking her under a microscope, and at 8:15 she doesn’t just win the game, she absolutely destroys it.
