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!

Dragons are awe-inspiring patchwork creatures found in the myths and legends of cultures all around the world.

In Europe, they are nightmarish fire-spewing reptiles, large and lizard-like, with the forked tongue of a snake and wings like a bat. In the legends, they are reviled and feared because they liked to imprison maidens, destroy villages and hoard over mountains of gold.

In the ancient cultures of Mexico and South America, a divine feathered serpent known by various names was believed to renew the world after each cycle of destruction.

In China, dragons are amphibious creatures that dwell in oceans, lakes, rivers and even raindrops. They are revered as life-giving symbols of fortune and fertility, capable of unleashing rain in times of drought. They are animal mosaics, possessing the body of a snake, the scales of a fish, the talons of an eagle, the antlers of a stag, and the face of a gilin—another mythical creature that resembles a deer but whose body is wreathed in flames.

DON’T MAKE FUN OF HOW SLOW YOU THINK SOMEONE READS.

EVEN IF YOU’RE JOKING JUST PLEASE DON’T.

IT DOESN’T FEEL GOOD.

thanks for your consideration.

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!

Some neat dog care tips from a book written in 1934;

  • Treat your dog as an equal and be his pal rather than his master
  • The best way to ensure your dog’s obedience is to gain his confidence
  • Use your imagination on your dog’s behalf
  • Maybe you do not always convey your…

Parineeti Chopra responds to a male reporter who claims to know nothing about periods (menstrual cycle). [X]

SO IMPORTANT.

I started my period when I was 10 years old. But we didn’t tell my grandma for three years because she subscribed to the “old traditions”, where a woman on her period could not enter the house, not even to bathe. Where she had to sit outside in front of the house (where the whole village could be witness to her shame and isolation) for the entire duration.

My friend started her period unexpectedly while we were at our local temple (in America) for dance class. Asking around if any of the parents had pads (all of them apologized and acted like adults about it), I thought surely the front office has a first aid kit. Don’t they have pads? When we asked, not only did they not have any, when one of the women gave one from her purse, the head secretary told us “There are men who need to use the first-aid kit, ya? So we don’t keep period things there.” Not even ibuprofen (which has so many more uses than period pain).

There are girls in India and Nepal (and other places, but I just read an in-depth piece about the situations in Nepal) who have to go to the “period hut” when their period comes and not leave until its over. They can’t wash and dry their cloth pads in the daylight, so they do it at night when the pads won’t dry properly before their next use, making them vulnerable to infection.

It is incredibly important, especially in India, to break the taboo surrounding periods. Break the secrecy around an event that happens to almost every woman, every month for literally half of her lifetime. Break the hiding, break the cover-up, break the SHAME.

Just break EVERYTHING. So little girls can go to school every day of every month without feeling ashamed. So women can work every day of every month to provide for their families without being glared at. So single fathers can confidently take care of their daughters’ health. So that women can talk about how terrible their period is or isn’t and give each other advice on how to deal with it without looking around to make sure men aren’t listening.
So that Whisper doesn’t have to be called Whisper, it can be called SHOUT. It can be called PROUD. So that we don’t NEED to fucking WHISPER about our bodies and our health.
