Hello, darlings! Don't be scared, I'm quite sane, I promise you. | A Sherlockian, a Potterhead, a Trekkie, among other things. | A pianist, a violinist, a ukulele-ist (for the sake of consistency, bear with me), and hopefully, one day, a guitarist. I know next to nothing about singing, but I've not got a completely unbearable voice and a life of music has made me not entirely tonedeaf. Thankfully. | I wouldn't call myself an artist, but you will find no notebook of mine not completely filled with drawings. | Have a nice day. <3
// that’s not childish of you, it’s imo very childish of your mum - it’s mean to go all roundabout while all she means to say is ‘no’. It’s toying with your feelings and that’s really unfair *hugs tight*Yeah, pretty lame. And toying with them more, she spent about 20 minutes insisting that I do go, but also making me feel incredibly guilty about it, so it ended up being me telling her that I didn’t want to go at all because it was so inconvenient. And it became really hard for me to be honest and tell the obvious truth that I want to go to this party. Just a lot of bad emotions over something really quite small.
When you’re 19 it’ll be easier. And when you’re 20 it’ll be easier. And when you’re 24 it’ll be easier again. And when you’re 26 it’ll be easier again. We have a long road ahead. It is not without it’s lessons. Be pissed, but be patient too.Taking your word for it, and trying very hard to be patient, haha. I kinda figured parents just need time to get used to this because it’s pretty new to them, and they don’t actually know it’s not completely new to me (oops).
why are parents allowed to yell and scream at their children and call them names and just make them feel like shit in general…
but when kids try to defend themselves…. its disrespectful?
what kind of fucking shit parents do you have
is this a new thing to you
// :( Im sorry hon that sucks balls :(( I know it hardly helps but you’re in my thoughts <3 *hugs tight*
Nawwww im sorry things are so hard for you regarding that. Hopefully it’ll get better? in time? like a month? if they get more comfortable with the idea and see its a serious thing to you?Thanks guys <3 It totally sucks now, haha, but yeah, I’m hoping it’ll get better with time. We’ll see, I guess :)
"My lionfish research is going viral…but my name has been intentionally left out of the stories, replaced by the name of the 12-year-old daughter of my former supervisor’s best friend. The little girl did a science fair project based on my PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED DISCOVERY of lionfish living in low-salinity estuarine habitats. Her story has been picked up nationally by CBS, NPR, and CORAL magazine, and has received almost 90,000 likes on Facebook, yet my years of groundbreaking work on estuarine lionfish are being completely and intentionally ignored. At this stage in my career, this type of national exposure would be invaluable…if only my name was included in the stories. I feel like my hands are tied. Anything I say will come off as an attempt to steal a little girl’s thunder, but it’s unethical for her and her father to continue to claim the discovery of lionfish in estuaries as her own.
I’m looking towards you - my valued friends and colleagues - for suggestions on how I might be able to remedy this intentional misrepresentation without doing anything to disparage the little girl. Most of you are aware of the massive amount of time I put into exposing kids to science, and I obviously don’t want to do anything to diminish this young lady’s curiosity or enthusiasm. I’m thrilled that she chose to look at lionfish for her science fair project, but encouraging an outright lie is poor parenting and a horrible way to introduce a youngster to a career in the sciences.
This picture was taken in 2010, when I first discovered lionfish occupying estuarine habitats - 3 years before the little girl’s “discovery” “
-Dr. Zack Jud
I pulled this directly off his Facebook page.
I will state again that I have nothing against the little girl being so involved and excited by marine biology etc. but it’s appalling that his name isn’t even being mentioned (WAY TO GO SCIENCE JOURNALISTS).
I don’t think many people realize how valuable this kind of recognition would be for someone who just graduated.
To look at more of his work that pre-dates the “breakthrough discovery” of the kid go HERE.
Please spread. Get this guy the recognition he deserves.
If you are a child anything is possible. I’m signal boosting this because this man deserves all the credit.
Has anyone seen my virgini-tea?
man this is all insani-tea
this is absurdit-tea
You guys are all having detrimental effects on my sani-tea
Is this reali-tea?
is this just fantas-tea
Or is it all just Moriar-tea?
this post is now a threat to national securi-tea.
