Two sneak peeks at what I’m working on right now! I am so excited to get these done for the holiday season!
New stuff coming up soon!
You know, Peeta’s unconventional masculinity is as relevant for traditional gender subversion in The Hunger Games as Katniss’s unconventional femininity.
It’s a bit annoying to see everyone and their mother praising Katniss for being such a unique action female hero, and…
YES thank you
I made my first sale today on Etsy! Whoohoo!!! I’m so excited…it feels good to know someone appreciated what I created enough to actually pay money for it. Craziness!
Also, I shall be posting a new pattern to my shop tomorrow or Thursday at the latest! I’m pretty stoked about it…I have a ton of…
So I guess I’m one of those weird people that reblogs from their other blog…oh well! hahaha!
I finally opened up my Etsy store! I’m selling cross stitch patterns of my own design, as shown above. Check them out and see if any tickle your fancy! https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheVividStitch
Heyyyyy, this is my other blog! It’s documenting my new venture, The Vivid Stitch! It’s a cross stitch pattern shop and you should totally check it out!
I like what this Army officer had to say about sexual harassment in the military.
Ramen just almost came out my nose

"EVERYBODY KNOWS I’M A MUTHAFUCKIN MONSTERRR"

The Women Who Mapped the Universe And Still Couldn’t Get Any Respect
In 1881, Edward Charles Pickering, director of the Harvard Observatory, had a problem: the volume of data coming into his observatory was exceeding his staff’s ability to analyze it. He also had doubts about his staff’s competence–especially that of his assistant, who Pickering dubbed inefficient at cataloging. So he did what any scientist of the latter 19th century would have done: he fired his male assistant and replaced him with his maid, Williamina Fleming. Fleming proved so adept at computing and copying that she would work at Harvard for 34 years–eventually managing a large staff of assistants.
So began an era in Harvard Observatory history where women—more than 80 during Pickering’s tenure, from 1877 to his death in 1919— worked for the director, computing and cataloging data. Some of these women would produce significant work on their own; some would even earn a certain level of fame among followers of female scientists. But the majority are remembered not individually but collectively, by the moniker Pickering’s Harem.
Our unsung heros that contribute just as much to science as the PI. The lab assistant, the cataloguer, the person who takes data. Many times they contribute to the IP, help work through troubleshooting and maintaining lab equipment. It takes a village to make significant breakthroughs in science.
