If something is ‘old as fuck’ then it’s about 1.2 billion years old because that’s when life evolved sexual reproduction.

Five (Six?) Things About Me

I was tagged by spaceadmiraldee, so here’s my once a blue moon post about my life!

  1. I probably have the most scattered resume ever. In fact, if I don’t tailor my resume or CV, I get calls just so they can ask me, did you really do that? and it’s great. I’m pretty sure I was hired in one of my office jobs just because they thought it was cool I interned at the zoo. 4+ years of camp counselor experience, primate caretaker experience, caretaker at an assisted living facility, occupational therapy intern, retail experience, office jobs, and of course lab are but a few. Many of them I’ve had at the same time.
  2. Oh I almost forgot, film production experience. If I didn’t take that Anthro 101 class, I would had been a film major. I love film production and graphic design work, but mainly film production. I’ve interned in film production companies, made print ads, DP’d scenes, blah. But my two favorites are actually storyboarding and film editing. Idk, you just get into the zone when you’re sitting in the editing room working on Final Cut or Premiere. It’s just nice, although 18 hours passes by real fast when you do that.
  3. Hiking. I love hiking. And nature. And hiking. But I am a horrible swimmer and terrified of the ocean. I’m all about that lake life tho.
  4. Many people don’t know this, but I actually have trouble processing verbal communication. Basically, talking to me is very, very difficult. I need to maintain eye contact and/or stare at your lips and even then, I may not even really process what it is you said. I rely a lot on subtitles on tv, actually doing the readings for classes, asking for other people’s notes and actually reading theirs and checking it with mines, recording lectures and actually going back and listening to them as I study, it’s a hassle. At least I learn, but I’m so bad at on the spot questions and stuff. Also phone interviews are so difficult because I have to close my eyes and focus just on what I’m hearing. Because of this, I have a couple of really big pros and cons, the pro is, you have my undivided attention. I can’t multitask or I won’t know what’s happening. The bad thing is, people seem to think that staring at lips means something more. But it’s really because I can’t fucking understand what you’re saying.
  5. You know those tumblr posts that basically says something like, i shit you not the only reason why i have such a high level of self esteem is because i started off ironically saying shit like that about myself but after a while i started to believe it, well, that’s pretty much what happened to me. I know everyone may not be able to do that, but it could. I literally have self esteem coming out of my ass because I ironically acted like the king of the damn hill and well, sometimes I still doubt it, but at least not it’s just sometimes, you know. /shrug
  6. I guess I’ll do six? I’m honestly not sure how much I’m supposed to do. This is also blasphemy considering my audience, but, I… have trouble… reading…?? Not in the sense that I’m illiterate (well I am illiterate regarding non English languages), but that, I have so much trouble focusing. I can find a book or article that is interesting, but I get tired or get distracted and put the book/article down and never come back to it. I also have this thing where I HAVE TO START FROM THE BEGINNING. I can’t just start at a random chapter, even if it’s a nonchronological book or a text book. I HAVE TO START AT THE INTRO, OR PREFACE, OR ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS and that makes it even harder because they’re usually boring as hell. I just have trouble starting something when I start it.

Okay, those are probably more information about me than you’d ever need to know. I will tag people, and I know some of them have already done this, but they’ll be there so they’ll know that I did this already, and of course anyone is allowed to go for it, just tag me in so I’ll know you did it:

Race to be scrapped from Swedish legislation
The Swedish government announced that it plans to remove all mentions of race from Swedish legislation, saying that race is a social construct which should not be encouraged in law. The concept of race is included in around 20 Swedish laws, including criminal code, student financial aid laws, and credit information laws. On Thursday the Swedish government began an investigation into how to remove the concept from all legislation, as has been done in Austria and Finland.

24-year-old photographer Asher Svidensky recently traveled to west Mongolia with the intention of documenting the lives of traditional Kazakh eagle hunters, people who tame eagles for the purpose of hunting smaller animals.

With the traditions typically laying in the hands of the boys and the men, the biggest surprise throughout the journey was Svidensky’s discovery of a young eagle huntress, 13-year-old Ashol Pan, the daughter of an experienced eagle hunter. These stunning photographs symbolize the potential future of the eagle hunting tradition as it expands beyond a male-only practice.

5,000-year-old ‘transgender’ skeleton discovered

Trans Female Skeleton


Archaeologists have discovered a 5,000-year-old skeleton which they believe may be the remains of a transgender person.

Men’s bodies from that age and culture are usually found buried with their heads towards the west and with weapons.

But this skeleton was found with its head towards the east and was surrounded by domestic jugs – as women’s bodies from the time are usually found.

At a press conference in Prague yesterday, archaeologists theorised that the person may have been transgender or ‘third sex’.

Kamila Remišová, the head of the research team, said: “From history and ethnology, we know that when a culture had strict burial rules they never made mistakes with these sort of things.”

The article also states that:

This is not the first time a skeleton has been found buried as a member of the opposite sex. One woman from the Mesolithic period, who was assumed to be a warrior, was found buried with weapons.

“transgender is new trend” go fuck yourselvea

Trans people have always existed.
