School has started or will very soon so what would be better to do than to gather some great resources for a better school year?

  1. Evernote - keep your research at one place
  2. Khan Academy - over 4,200 educational videos
  3. Mathaway - helps you solve almost every math problem
  4. Cliffnotes - read and prep for school work
  5. Studious - great way to keep track of schedule
  6. iFormulas - references for mathematical formulas
  7. Pocket - save studies and articles much easier
  8. Science glossary - for those hard science words
  9. Studyblue - online flashcards for your next test
  10. Any.do - daily planner 
  11. Dropbox - don’t rely on your computer alone, make sure your notes and papers are safely uploaded online, just in case.
  12. Feed.ly  - gather all your fav websites for research or whatever in one place - I love this myself!
  13. Scribd - online library
  14. Self Control - we all know self control during work or school isn’t always around
  15. TED - lots of good presentation by interesting people
  16. Chegg - don’t have all the money for new text books? Chegg lets you rent many text books for much less than it costs to buy
  17. Duolingo - learning a new language? Then I’ll recommend this one
  18. Mint.com - make sure you’ve got your money straight 
  19. Alarmy - hard to get up in the morning? Well, this alarm makes you take a picture of your sink to turn it off!
  20. Sworkit - don’t forget that exercise will make it easier to concentrate! 

Don’t forget to look at my 27 websites for a new year - where you can find lots of other resources for health, fitness, school/work and div when starting a new year(school year too)

I’ve also got a post called 53 posts for students which contains nutrition and fitness posts especially for students!

THIS IS A GRAPHIC I MADE MONTHS AGO I’M REPOSTING NOW (because sadly this is still relevant). text is also the same as last time.
hey readers,this is not the usual fare on my blog so i apologize in advance and please bear with me. i’d like to bring your attention to something that has made me sad and angry for some time now, and i can no longer shut up about it. the fact that this lady is building an entire business based on stolen designs. behold this sad sight ..^^^
now artists are always inspired by each other, drawing on each other’s energies and this is as it should be. when you are learning a new craft copying the works of others is extremely useful. as a teenager i copied works of schiele, bauer, bilibin, brian froud and manga artists clamp to name a few. hints of their influence can still be seen in my work. the important disctinction is i knew those copies were done for practice and kept them around my room never showing them to anyone. if i had showed them around i would’ve said “look here’s a copy of bilibin’s vasilisa drawing, i made it for practice”. not “here is some of my work. pay me for it”.a few years ago i had someone steal a lot of my art style and seeing their work, new or old, hurts me to this day. hurts as in i’ve cried about it countless times and if they hadn’t done it my art may have taken a different direction. i know this make me sounds like a drama queen! but it’s the truth and i really want others to think twice about this thing so i’m sharing the fact of how much it hurt me in the hopes that it will make people think twice before supporting stolen work.this is why i want to bring your attention to the above graphics. bloodmilk  is a true artist who clearly cites her inspirations: surrealism, victorian mourning jewels and her own life story. if you read the descriptions in her shop you’l see that here’s someone who thinks deeply about their art deserves the success that has come their way. little sister designs has blatantly stolen her whole aesthetic. please think twice before supporting a ripoff. i see the work of little sister designs posted on instagram a lot, i’m not sure whether i dare talk about this on there because drama can flare up so quickly in that medium. but i had to say something somewhere.let’s support ART and ORIGINALITY and HARD WORK. not ripoffs. it’s one thing to make a jewel or two (or a drawing) inspired by someone else. look closely at these shops and you will see that there is nothing original about the second one. i hope little sister designs finds their own voice and i don’t mean to spread hate, i just want people to stop sharing and supporting the work of this person.thanks for reading xoxo

Signal boosting. I’m not looking to stir up drama, but copying other people’s work and passing it off as your own is RUDE and SMALL-MINDED. Support the original artists.

Presentation Sword for General Joaquín Sinforiano de Jesús Crespo Torre

  • Dated:  third quarter of the 19th Century
  • Place of Origin: Venezuela
  • Measurements: overall length 94 cm

The sword features a straight, double-edged blade of fine Damascus steel, triangular section, hexagonal toward the tip, the rectangular one finely engraved and gilt on blue ground with dedication "A. SCHRIEVER AL GENERAL J. CRESPO EN MUESTRA DE ADMIRACION" among floral motifs on a side, and Venezuela coat of arms among floral motifs on the other.

At the back lies the name of the German manufacturer "WEYERSBERG, KIRSCHBAUM & CO. SOLINGEN", on a marked tang. The beautiful, gilt bronze hilt is richly pierced shell-guard with Venezuela coat of arms at the centre, counter-valve pierced with leaves, at the guard the in-he-round of a winged goddess, the head of a gryphon at the upper edge.

The pommel comes with the monogram “JC” as for Joaquin Crespo, decorated with cherubs and laurels. The metallic grip is partially blackened and at the front features the effigy of the war goddess. The sword is presented in its leather scabbard, which is damaged, but still has its gilt bronze mounts, richly pierced and belt hooks in the shape of Medusa’s head. The scabbard also has three suspension rings.

Sidenotes:

  1. Joaquín Sinforiano de Jesús Crespo Torres (22 August 1841 – 16 April 1898) was a politician, soldier, and a member of the Great Liberal Party of Venezuela.
  2. He was also the President of Venezuela from 1884 to 1886 and again from 1892 to 1898. He probably received this sword when he was nominated Chief of Staff.

I’ve been reorganizing and cleaning up my room since I’m leaving to go back to college tomorrow morning. Moved my collector shelf to the other side of the room and fixed up what I could. Many sneezes were had since there were a crap ton of dust bunnies hidden under everything I moved.

HUGGERS… meet the Shy Shark!  THIS IS A THING!  THIS IS REALLY A THING….! 

450 millions years of evolution and 'if i can't see it, it can't hurt me' is the best they could come up with!  WAY too adorable!  

You know, there are so many other jawsome sharks out there - shark week shouldn’t just focus on the white shark.  I love a good breach as much as the next shark lover, but these guys are too cute!  <3

I recently said goodbye to two people who’re very, very close to me. I won’t see them for a long time due to them having to move a couple states away and I’ll be heading to college very soon. I’m really getting choked up right now and my anxiety is bubbling up again. Sorry I’ve just really had to vent this out somewhere.

Well that took me 0.01 seconds to reblog

I imagine this playing in a brutal fight scene, explosions everywhere, smoke and debris flying in slow motion, while the bots charge into battle in absolute horror of what is happening.

This sounds so sad…
