Hi I'm Amber, but you can call me Bam, or BamBoo, or That Crazy Girl That Obsesses Over Things Easily. I blog about pretty much whatever's on my mind. I'm a multi-fandom blog, with funny posts & the occasional feminist/egalitarian rant. I am engaged to the most wonderful man in the world, I work at a preschool, and I have a major obsession with dragons, books, and animals, and I am a super open person that loves people!

 

i don’t need you
to fight my battles,
i just need
for you to be there
when my hands
begin to tremble
and my voice breaks,
to help me
steady my sword
and teach me
how to roar.

m.v., I am my own savior, you are a companion. (via findingwordsforthoughts)

For structures that have no entry steps, ConvertaStep also makes ramps of three sizes that come in a manual as well as automatic version.
(via ConvertaStep | Wheelchair Accessibility | Ramps | Convertastep - Freedom In Mobility)

This welcome mat converts into a fully accessible wheelchair ramp. Beautiful and functional design. I want it.

Some more info, for people who are interested.

First of all, I can’t believe this has almost 3,000 notes. I’m so glad that people are sharing this - both as a cool design, and also as an important accessibility feature.
Thanks to pseudosoph for linking to additional info (above) regarding weight limits, lift height, and product background — the creator is a wheelchair user himself! Very cool stuff. Keep sharing!

my-queen-is-coming:

In honor of the fact that I’ve hit 100 followers (something I honestly thought would never happen), I’ve decided to do a giveaway. The rules are as follows:
•Since this is because I’ve reached 100 followers, you have to be following me.
•The giveaway will be ending on the release day of the latest book I preordered, which is Blue Lily, Lily Blue. That means it’ll end on October 21.
•There will be three winners. Each winner can pick from one of the books above, or another book in the series (in the case of Alanna: The First Adventure, you can pick any of Tamora Pierce’s books). They will also get a copy of The Raven Boys (or The Dream Thieves or Blue Lily, Lily Blue, if they prefer).
•Only reblogs count, but you can like it to bookmark it. You can reblog it as many times as you’d like, but try not to spam your followers.
•I’ll be ordering them off the Book Depository, so it’s open worldwide.
•I’ll be using a random number generator to pick the winners.
•I’ll contact the winners via ask, so make sure you have your ask box open.
•If a winner doesn’t respond within 48 hours, I’ll pick a new winner.
I think that covers everything, but feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions!

we joke about procrastination but nothing is worse than the nauseating feeling of having every intention of doing something but physically not being capable of doing it and then feeling like you want to throw up because the deadline is just getting closer and closer.

cute date idea: let me sleep in your bed for hours on end because I’m tired of being a person

accurate

One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.

I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10… and this was it.

fat girls: never ever be ashamed of your size
queen wrote a ballad to fat butts
freddie sang your praises
you’re way cute

How about never being ashamed simply because there’s nothing to be ashamed about in the first place? I’m tired of people tying…

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel 

Speaking their lines vs the final product

Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?

Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a  dedicated  motherfucking professional

Vin Diesel made you fall in love with a character who said 4 words. The CGI brought his words to visual life, but they’d be meaningless without his amazing command of voice. 

Basically vin Diesel had the challenge of:
"OK, this is the message you’re trying to convey"
"Alright"
"But you can only ONLY say I am Groot”

Because every time Groot says “I am Groot” he means something and vin Diesel had to convey that message as best he could with only those 3 words through inflection, emphasis, and emotion.
