    FINALLY, the weather for long dress length cardigans, over the knee socks and furry snow boots in UPON US - =͟͟͞͞ ( ꒪౪꒪)ฅ✧

    (at least until my apartment gets hot again out of nowhere ughhh)

    Love winter because, in part, of all the clothes one can layer on. Summer is pretty boring by contrast — stripping down just to keep from melting into a pool of sweat.

This 1911 photo of Marie Curie in a roomful of dudes (including Max Planck, Henri Poincaré, Ernest Rutherford, and young Albert Einstein, lurking in the background, second from right) bespeaks so much both about the gendered state of science and about the enormity of cultural bias Curie overcame to become the “Martyr of Science,” the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and the only person to date to win a Nobel in two different sciences.
Also see Curie on science and wonder. 

I wonder what the three with their heads down — Marie included — are working on, talking about. They seem separate from the rest of the crowd.

  4. People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any

    • Romeo: I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
    • Juliet: I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
    • --
    • Romeo: We should kiss right now at this party
    • Juliet: No that is a super dumb idea
    • Romeo: *kisses her anyway*
    • Juliet: That was dumb of you
    • --
    • Romeo: We should get married right now
    • Juliet: We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
    • Romeo: Like tomorrow?
    • Juliet: Sure, fine.
    • --
    • Juliet: We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
    • Romeo: Right.
    • Romeo: It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
    • --
    • Juliet: Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
    • Romeo: *immediately kills himself*
    • Juliet: For fucks sake.

    Zen Habits Live Simply

    image

    1. Do one thing at a time. This rule (and some of the others that follow) will be familiar to long-time Zen Habits readers. It’s part of my philosophy, and it’s also a part of the life of a Zen monk: single-task, don’t multi-task. When you’re pouring water, just pour…

Wealth and Prosperity
The back left corner of the desk represents prosperity. Target this space to attract money and abundance. It’s a great place for a plant, but if your green thumb is more on the brown side, consider placing a valuable item (such as a crystal vase or jar of change) in this corner. This could also be a good spot for a (well-functioning) computer. Color: Purple
Fame and Reputation Want more than fifteen minutes in the spotlight? In the center back of the Bagua map, you’ll find the space for fame. Place business cards or a nameplate here. Cerrano also recommends “motivational images that highlight who you are and your accomplishments” (think a photo of your first marathon finish or your hard-earned diploma). Color: Red
Love and Relationships To find a little love today (or in the future), focus on the back right corner. Single? A fresh flower, which can bring luck and maybe even spark romance, goes here. Already have a special someone? Place a photo of you and your loved one here. Color: Pink
CreativityBoost creativity by adding inspiration to the right center of the grid. Aspiring writers, place a journal or book here. A blank sketchbook would be ideal for artists, while a metal object may work well for others. But really, anything goes — just get creative! Colors: White, silver, gold, copper
Helpful People and Travel If you’re in need of a little help from your friends, focus on the front right section. This is a great place to put a phone or an address book (Do people use those anymore?). This area also represents travel, so a travel guide or a photo of a dream vacation spot would work well here.Color: Gray
Career Front and center is the career space — definitely appropriate for a desk. Keep this spot free of clutter. Cerrano suggests displaying affirmations or motivational quotes around the office; this would be a great place to stick one of those. Color: Black
Knowledge and Wisdom Struggling to learn new material, or just want to be wise beyond your years? Focus on the front left corner of the desk. Place a reference book (or maybe a picture of Albert Einstein) here. Color:Blue
Family Although it’s a cliché desktop feature, a family photo, according to Feng Shui principles, fits well on the left center of the desk. A wood frame enhances the energy of this particular space. Color:Green
Health Although sitting at a desk doesn’t do much for your health, there are a few ways to promote health even while working. Keep the center area of the desktop free of clutter to attract good energy to the area. In addition, Cerrano recommends taking short breaks throughout the day to reduce stress and maintain focus. Color: Yellow
Most Importantly Clear Clutter and Organize!!!

    Oh yes I do! I read this great book called Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston (great book and easy to understand I highly recommend) and there is a great step by step guide on how to space clear your space. This is a bit of a process, so if you don’t have time, just get a sage stick and walk into all the rooms with it burning while visualizing all the energy being purified. But if you want more of a ritual this is what I recommend: 

    Basic Space Clearing Checklist

    Preparation

    1. Do not attempt Space Clearing if you feel any fear or apprehension. These techniques are perfectly safe but are designed for personal every day use, not for the purposes of exorcism- leave that to trained professionals.

    2. Obtain permission before doing space clearing if not in your own home.

    3. Do space cleaning when you feel physically fit and healthy, emotionally centered, and mentally focused.

    4. It is best not to do space clearing if you are pregnant, menstruating, or have an open flesh wound.

    5. Take the time to think about what you want to have happen in your life. If you share the space with others, it is best to consult them too.

    6. For best results, psychically clean and straighten up the space, sweep, mop or vacuum it, and clear out clutter first.  

    7. Take a full bath or shower, or at least wash your face and hands. 

    8. Put food and drink away in cupboards or sealed containers.

    9. Remove jewelry and other metallic objects from your person. Work barefoot if possible. 

    10. Work alone unless other people present fully understand what you are doing. 

    11. Work in silence without background music. Turn off any fans and other nonessential loud or droning machinery.

    12. Open a door or window.

    13. Locate an appropriate power point and set up your equipment.  

    14. Roll up your sleeves and sanitize your hands. 

    Procedures

    1. Take time to attune to the space. Mentally announce yourself and radiate your intentions. 

    2. Starting at the main entrance, go around the inside perimeter of the space, sensing the energy. Use your hands and all your other senses too.

    3. Light candles, burn incense, sprinkle holy water, and offer flowers and prayers to the guardian spirit of the house and the spirits of the earth, air, fire and water. Call in the angels and your own personal guides and helpers (whatever feels appropriate to you).

    4. Clap in corners to dispense static energy. Then wash your hands in running water (very important to remember to do this).

    5. Purify the space with bells.

    6. Shield the space (through visualization).

    7. Fill the space with intention, light and love (through visualization).

    I hope this helps you, blessed be!

  10. My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

    And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
