I am so fricking tired, I am done with two really big papers and I have so much to do but tomorrow I’m just gonna rest. Today was so good though, today my Sociology professor hosted a Feminist Panel discussing the Humanist v. Feminist pov and it was so fucking good, like i was moved to tears twice. Excellent points were made during the question and answer, there was a heated debate amongst a few students discussing that submitting feminism as a label is wrong and why not label self as a humanist (which is what the panel was about), and the ending argument by a young woman was so empowering. I am much more of an observer when it comes to debates because I like hearing ideas and the argument, even if I want to voice what I have to say so I stayed quiet. I stay in the same hall for my next class so my professor and I usually chit chat about feminism and stuff while she’s packing up, and she really wants to me to join the campus’ CC Fem club that she runs and she told me she would love to have me and she believes my ideas would be a great asset to the club, and it makes me so excited. She’s been telling me this since the first week of class about a month ago. I really wish I could, I just don’t have school the only day they meet but I want to try. I’m really proud to be a feminist and I really hope people can change that notion that “feminist” is a dirty word. Feminism is so empowering. I’m gonna try getting to bed now. I’m planning on being a lazy slum playing on the internet tomorrow haha.
Please sign this petition to achieve giving a beloved professor her teaching back!
My school is trying to leave one of the most pivotal people involved in my entire educational career unemployed through politics, and it’s not through budget cuts. Professor Johnson has taught at Chaffey College since 2000, and I have had the honor of being a student in her inspiring and wonderful Women Artists in History course. (Art 6).
I sit through Art History: Renaissance to Contemporary, Art History: Antiquity to Renaissance, and a Humanities course that deals with the Arts that has not once mentioned the brilliance and fantastic talents of Sofonisba Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, Artemisia Gentileschi, Edmonia Lewis, Elisabeth Vigee Leburn, Elisabetta Sirani, and many many more—even Frida Kahlo hasn’t been mentioned. When these professors mention any of these artists, they give them the saddest little mention that does not remotely achieve the essence and power of their work. It is agonizing to hear my professors lecture and marginalize these pivotal woman artists out of art history as if their contributions did not once exist. (Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists? by Linda Nochlin is an A+ read.) The school is also trying to take away Art 1: Contemporary Art, 1945-Present away from Professor Johnson as well and I can only imagine that she heavily incorporates pivotal women artists in her lectures in a way that my other art history professors lack. It is terrifying that as someone who identities as a woman artist, that my future work can be shut out of history through politics—and that people, like my peers in my art history courses now, will not learn who these artists are.
Professor Johnson also works with the feminist group on campus called CC Femme and together they fund-raised over a period of years to accomplish having Kathe Kollwitz, a member of the Guerilla Girls, to fly to our school and give us a presentation of their work. (One of the most amazing moments of my life. Seriously.)
Please please PLEASE sign this petition. There are 64 more signatures needed but the more the merrier, please!
Thank you so so much! :)
oh my god i got distracted from the essays i’m writing and i just discovered the word document where i would write all of my good morning messages on in high school, i totally forgot i wrote those. i even saved all the sweetest little messages people would write back to me thanking me and telling me how much my good morning messages would make their day. their responses would make my day, and just reading them now grew the biggest cheesiest smile on my face. almost half, actually mostly all of the people who would say those things i lost contact with. wow, that was so long ago. was 2010 and 2011 really that long ago? did i really graduate three years ago this may? i’m on the verge of an existential crisis and i need to get back to writing three essays but damn that was a fun / happy / good time to be alive, junior and senior years were the funnest years. then all of my hope just died. i miss writing my good morning messages sometimes, maybe my hope would come back if i wrote them again. i don’t know.
At 7:26 pm today, my cat, my first ever pet, Lucy passed away. The last 14 years having you part of our family Lucy was such a blessing; your memories and life will live on. thank you to everyone who was lucky enough to experience such a loving cat, no one will replace her. May you rest in peace and I hope there’s plenty of potato chips for you to eat in your kitty heaven ❤️
I’m crying again 😫
Yooooooooo today is so so massively good
I went to La Luz de Jesus Gallery to see Charlie Immer’s show (!!!!!!! So!!!!!!!! Good!!!!!!! I’ve been looking forward to this for months!!!!!!), Yoshimoto Nara’s show at Blum & Poe (no one goes to the second floor of the gallery which is a real shame because it chronicles his entire career and it had my personal favorite piece which was a little hole in the wall with a little one of his characters sitting in a dark room under a lightbulb, it makes sense with photos), Fuco Ueda’s at ThinkSpace (her detail is so fucking insane in person, I wanted to cry), and Mark Whalen at Merry K Gallery (MARK FUCKING WHALEN WALKED INTO THE GALLERY AND I KNEW IT WAS HIM BUT I DIDNT FREAKIN SAY ANYTHING AND HE LEFT AND I ASKED THE RECEPTIONIST IF IT WAS HIM AND WHEN SHE CONFIrmed IT WAS I FELT SO DUMB I WAS AT HIS SHOW AND HE CAME AND GOD I AM SUCH AN IDIOT HIS SHOW WAS SO GODDAMN BRILLIANT). Yeah yeah and now I’m waiting for the second OVA from Attack on Titan to get translated and I’m especially excited because i guess Jean is a huge part of it ha ha ha what a good day
Oh my god during the middle of lecture today some random dude slammed open the door and stood with his back against the classroom with his cell phone raised above his head and screamed SUPER FUCKING LOUD like some battle war cry and walked out of the classroom like nothing even happened and some girl was like “oh god he’s recording a Vine”
So if someone finds this Vine pls send it my way thank you
I’m watching Attack on Titan with my dad and I just really want to know how the 104th reacted when they heard that Wall Maria fell since they’re from Wall Rose like Connie and Sasha and Jean and Marco and what kind of things they heard and if they were scared and I want flashbacks of their baby ten year old selves okay
So I created a timeline of the Year 850 gathering information until Ch. 55 of the Attack on Titan / Shingeki no Kyojin saga to get a clear idea of how much time has passed since the 104th graduated. I gathered evidence and facts from mainly the manga but I did refer to the anime once or twice. (I’ve read the manga nearly three times now and have seen the anime nine times since being introduced in the middle of October. Obviously my life has not been the same.) This contains spoilers. ヽ(๏∀๏ )ﾉ
This timeline is not perfect and Week 8 begins estimations, such as assuming two days have passed since Eren states Historia has been pretty mute since they got to the cabin “a few days ago,” as well as assuming Hanji waits to experiment on Eren three days following Pastor Nick’s death to keep hidden. I’ll try keeping up to date on this timeline as the Chapters go on.
If there are any mistakes, please feel free to correct me with your evidence, but first refer to my in-depth timeline in the Read More link below. (☞ﾟ∀ﾟ)☞ (EDIT: You really don’t have to read the timeline! This is just written for you if you wanted to check up on any inaccuracies and to properly explain why/how I referenced everything. (✪㉨✪))
Thank you & Goodbye (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
The Attack on Titan English dub sounds like the messy incoherent drunk friend you can’t take anywhere who promised you they wouldn’t drink and you believe them but after a concert they’re leaning over you yelling into a dodgy fast food drive-thru speaker box and they swear it’s broken so their voice just get increasingly louder even though it’s so unnecessary and the person taking the order can’t understand them so the drunk yelling friend repeats the order by talking faster instead of slower and you’re just embarrassed and you want to go home and we’re all just very fucking confused and there is no way those voices should be coming out of those bodies what the fuck is even going on anymore
I am just going to interrupt your feed to announce the next few months are lined with some majestic fucking gallery shows for myself, not to mention the rest of the year. I love Los Angeles. Thank.
Oh and I was going to get my boyfriend free tickets to see Rick Ross but he couldn’t go so I was like ok cool and Kanye West and Big Sean showed up ha ha hA
