Friendly reminder to check your breasts while you’re just sitting there scrolling the internet, then reblog so your followers do the same. Two people I know were just diagnosed within the same week.
FOREVER RE-BLOG WHEN I SEE THIS ON MY DASH
DO IT LADIES, IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE
so painfully relevant in my life right now :(
As a nurse in a clinic that frequently diagnoses breast cancer, let me say that age has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT! I have seen many as young as 25! But Please do this at least no more than once or twice a month. You won’t be able to feel a gradual change if you check your breasts everyday. Look for hard abnormal lumps. Soft, mobile masses are normal. Cancers LITERALLY feel as hard as marbles. But anything that is abnormal for you should be checked out.
Let me say that these are very important. Due to high risk of breast cancer in my family, I always gave to be on guard, but every woman should do it regardless.
Pretty happy that people may actually be checking breasts because of my post. The two people that were diagnosed with cancer have started treatment and one has lost all her hair already. This was for them. :)

Cap: Shouldn’t be a problem.
What I really love is that the movie doesn’t even bother to show them getting the wings. Like, pfft, whatever, infiltrating high securty places to steal experimental government technology, what is it Tuesday already? Nobody needs to see that, we have more important things to do.
#OKAY BUT #I love how Sam knows EXACTLY Where it is #like he’s had his eye on it #like he checked up on his wings #he missed his babies #he had to know where they are #and maybe even how to get them #ps sam what the fuck is wrong with your lamp (via bluandorange)
Favorite things include: Sam tracking the movement of his wingpack as it moves through the rungs of bureaucracy, Steve wondering if there’s a hidden layer to Sam’s statement because that totally sounds easy, Natasha being like “you are all dumb, this will take ten minutes tops,” everybody deferring to Natasha for strategy and management and Natasha’s version of management being a very sassy shrug of indifference
But especially Sam knowing how thick the fucking walls are. You know he was at City Hall studying blueprints and shit. You know they took him on a courtesy tour of the facility and waited in embarrassment when he got out his measuring tape
If a female character kicks ass, she’s overpowered. If a female character can’t defend herself, she’s unnecessary. If a female character acts nice, she’s boring. If a female character acts mean, she’s a bitch. If a female character shows no emotion, she’s heartless. If a female character shows emotion, she’s weak. What can a female character do without being criticized mercilessly?

If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from
If you would like to participate in this challenge, I ask that you DO NOT repost this anywhere else, including deviantART; please REBLOG this instead! I have the challenge uploaded to deviantART as well, so please check it out there if you want to do it on deviantART!
I’m going away for two weeks to be creative in my summer house and I would LOVE to try to make a picture for each of the palettes, so hit me up with suggestions!
"When Cynthia Koenig, a young social entrepreneur from New York, learned that millions of girls and women around the world spend hours each day collecting water from distant sources, she decided to create a new way to help people in poor communities transport water and it’s called the WaterWheel. Koenig’s WaterWheel allows people to roll water in a 50-liter container versus carrying it in 5 gallon (19 liter) jugs. Koenig estimates that the WaterWheel can save women 35 hours per week in water transport time, as well as prevent the physical strain that comes from balancing 40 pounds of water on top of their heads for hours each day.
Every day around the world, over 200 million hours are spent each day fetching water, often from water sources miles from home, and this task usually falls to women and girls. By freeing up valuable time, the WaterWheel allows women to spend time on income-generating activities that can help pull her family out of poverty. The time savings also means that there is a greater likelihood that girls will be allowed to stay in school, further reducing the rate of intergenerational poverty.
After receiving a $100,000 Grand Challenges Canada prize to develop the WaterWheel, Koenig founded a social enterprise company, Wello. The company is in an early stage of development and has been piloting the WaterWheel in rural communities in India. Koenig also plans on continuing to make the WaterWheel itself more useful by adding in filtration, drip irrigation kits, even a cell phone charger that uses the rotation of the wheel to charge the battery of the cell phone and give people more access to essentials like communication and education.
To learn more about this invention and its potential to transform the lives of many girls and women around the world, check out Koenig’s TED talk and you can read a recent article in The Guardian about her venture. To learn more about how to support her work, visit Wello’s website.”
