So, this semester I’m studying abroad at the lovely University of Edinburgh!

Last time I was in Canada, I accidentally drank a random bottle of medicated water. Last time I was in Germany, I flooded the bathroom of a 6 star hotel. To follow my experiences making a fool out of myself in Scotland, go to:

There will also be pictures and semi-serious posts (more of the former, less of the latter)

Abby Wambach for the ESPN Body Issue.

I love these photos. I love these photos because it’s the first time I can think of when I haven’t had to see a female athlete be overly sexualized and objectified. She’s naked, yes that’s the point of the issue (and the men are just as nude), but she’s powerful. She’s athletic and strong in both of these photos.

They just make me happy, okay?

This is like, Classical Greek Olympian style.  Less, “Hurrrrr, she’s nekkid” and more “HOLY SHIT LOOK AT HOW AWESOMELY BADASS HER BODY IS GODDAMN”.

I like it.

I had to have a closer look to realize the photos were of a female athlete, because of how non-sexual they are.
Absolutely stunning!

Nottingham, England by jrsisson

I reblog this too often, but it reminds me so much of our time in England.

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain — and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
A luminary clock against the sky

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.

we must not look at goblin men

we must not buy their fruits

who knows upon what soil they fed

their hungry thirsty roots

You know what bothers me more than the people who call Sally Donovan a “bitch” (or any variation of that insult )? The people who continue to insist that the reason Sally hates Sherlock so much HAS to be because she had a crush on him and he didn’t reciprocate.

I’m sorry, I…
