HELLOOOOOOO POSSUMS! it’s that time of the year again!
For the FIRST TIME EVER, I’m going to be exhibiting at Emerald City Comicon! I’ve gone plenty of times, LOVED every single time I went, but this year I got the nards to apply for an artist alley table. Accepted, I was! Amazing, it was! And this March 28-30, you can come see ME in person! I can draw you things! You can buy my comics and prints! We can have a chitchat! I can brofist you while singing the Canadian National Anthem! Whatever you request, LET’S DO IT!
Can’t wait to see all of you! I’ll have printed versions of Woo Hoo! Chapter 1! I’m so excited! People who buy a copy will have a chance to get a limited edition print and pin to go with it, as well. Hope to see you there! Pick up a copy!
Also I’ll have my GAMEboys calendars on sale, too, if you missed picking one up online. I’ll have a special deal on those since it’s already March.
Attitudes Toward Jews in Ten European Countries
People act like anti-Semitism isn’t a problem any more, but it’s absolutely a real phenomenon to this day. We are not post-anti-Semitism whatsoever.
I ended up covering up most of the work, but there’s a good burning rib cage under there X(

So many good memories of my siblings and I watching this show.
I loved this show as a kid!
It’s time to end the academic culture that says working yourself to sickness means you’re just working hard enough. It’s time to end the culture that says taking time for yourself and your own health comes at the expense of doing good work. It’s time to end the culture that says sleep deprivation, anxiety attacks, and binge drinking are just part of the game. It’s time to end the culture that says if you’re not getting along with your mentor, then it’s all your fault. It’s time to end the culture that says advisors and faculty don’t have to take responsibility for the health of their students. It’s time to end the culture that says seeking help means you’re weak, or a bad researcher.
I’m not afraid to admit that this is an issue that touched my life during my Ph.D. Thankfully I had amazing friends and family outside my program to help me through tough times. But I know that not everyone has a support system like mine. I also watched in sadness when, after a fellow Ph.D. student committed suicide, our program, university, and health services did nothing to acknowledge that it happened, or that the culture of academia could have contributed to it, and (as far as any of us have been able to tell), has done little if anything to stop it from happening again.
Some graduate programs are putting better student support systems in place, and for every bad advisor we can find an exception that cares and helps their students to the utmost of their ability. But academia, overall, still possesses a culture of acceptance and ignorance when it comes to mental health issues, especially in graduate programs.
It’s time to end that culture.
He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)
i almost pissed myself reading this
one of my favourite ship combos is when you have one really grumpy/cranky character or someone deathly serious who never smiles and a really happy/bubbly/energetic character that drags them everywhere and the first character looks really unamused but the happy character’s having the time of their life and then the happy character smooches the grumpy character and the grumpy character just gives this soft little smile and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I buy Girl Scout cookies and just leave them in the office. One, it’s important to morale, and two, I think Girl Scouts is important. I volunteer with them too. I don’t really “have time” to be doing that, but I make the time. It’s not just BS—they are teaching those young women good skills. I also think it’s important to go there and represent my field and let them know that women belong in science, and that being “a girl” in no way affects their ability to effect change in the world.
That said, for whatever reason, I really object to the phrase “children are our future”. No, children are not “our” future. Children are their own present. They’re people, give them some respect.
e: And look at their friggin badge list! It’s all important. Writing novels, social responsibility, finance, voting rights, watershed management…. Man, I wish I’d been in Girl Scouts.
New Boxtrolls trailer! There’s been a lot of hinting that this movie is going to be about alternative families. I love LAIKA! As beautiful as it gets, inside and out.
